This week at Resist reasonable atrocity.

David Schwartz writes about the terrifying realization that atrocities are often defended in rational, pragmatic, and entirely commonsensical terms. We must learn to "resist reasonable atrocity," he writes. "We must keep ever vigilant against good people, with good, rational reasons trying to convince us of terrible things."

In the news, Jane Greer reports on a confrontation between abortion rights advocates and anti-abortion activists outside the Unitarian Universalist Church of Jackson, Mississippi, last weekend. Meanwhile, Sonja Cohen keeps her weekly vigil tracking Unitarian Universalists in the media with a global warming special edition.

And a bit of advance warning: I won't be posting "This week at" updates for the next two weeks — but just because I'm taking a break from the Web doesn't mean the magazine shuts down. Oh, no: There will be new stories at But you'll have to remember to check them out by yourself. (Of course, there's always the email newsletter or RSS feeds to help you remember!)
