Do you know that the Occupiers are asking people in the Chicago area to provide them a place to stay while the NATO Meetings will take place here in a week from now. I am guessing that these Occupiers don't like living outside anymore. The weather around the time is often in the mid 70s around that time. So what should I do my civic duty and allow them in my place? I feel if President Obama is compassionate he could allow some to stay at his Hyde Park House. Do you agree?

No, I don't agree. It is not for a public official to become directly involved in a protest against the government, no matter what policies are under consideration. An Epispicol priest at a church in Chicago has offered to allow protesters to stay on the lawn of the church as a safe haven for them.

I know that many conservatives claim to be Christians, while others never actually attend church but rush to the support of religion, even though they don't practice it themselves. If you can trick people into believing something on the basis of deception, so much the better.

And for good reason, too.
