Via Mipe at Think Progress we find a quote from some jerk at NRO. The best part is not the riff about IPods and Hitler Youth Rallies, but the last sentence Mipe quotes:

And if there’s no sense of sin, then there’s no need for a Redeemer, or for the Church.

As proto-RUFNKM'er W.C. Fields* once said, "I don't write these, folks, I just read'em." Finally someone is willing to cop to it. Sin is the essential mechanism to create artificial demand for the Church. Or did I misread that?

* A Conversation between WC and a bartender:
Bartender: I'm sorry sir, but I can't serve you burbon. This is election day, partner, and the bar is closed. It's the law.
WC: Who made this law?
Bartender: The people voted for it!
WC: That's carrying democracy too far!
