Defender of the Faith

Al Gore issues a Letter to the Warminians in the Book of Nyt, to bolster faith in these trying days of Climategate and skepticism gone wild. Saeth Al the Captist:

From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption.

"Redemption?" What is this? Religious salvation?

And what is with the idea that what is at stake is our ability to "use rule of law" to enact his formula? Is he really saying that redemption is the goal whether or not rule of law is used to achieve it? Is he really saying what I think he's saying--that rule of law could be thrown aside if it stands in the way of redemption?

The man is a loon. He believes, and he's getting agitated that belief in the religion of global warming is wavering. Why does it seem like this chapter will end with ATF agents surrounding the Gorean compound on some hot summer day?

Now go and emit no more.

UPDATE: I'm not sure how to tie in the religious angle with the Terminator angle, but I'm sure the link exists.
