Time to plug one of our Affiliates. Last weekend the video card in my
wife's computer up and started not working right. So I signed on to
and looked for a replacement. I found a nice
Matrox AGP card for the tidy sum of $11. Checking the PayPal account
showed $22, so I placed the order. Even with shipping that left a
few bucks in PayPal. Five days later, it was delivered. Works
perfectly. So let me say, I've never been anything other than delighted
in the service I get from Tiger Direct. And the price wasn't bad
Of course, now the PayPal account is almost empty, so if you'd like to

This issue we get threatened by PGP for printing an article in which
Kate Graham expressed an opinion about them they didn't like. If it's
not one damned thing, it's another! So let me apologize for any ruffled
feathers, and we here at TLE sure don't want to cause any harm
to PGP's reputation or incomealthough I'm pretty sure the people
who read TLE are in the habit of thinking for themselves and
don't take anybody's word on anything about anything. Anytime. Heck,
we couldn't harm PGP's reputation or income if we wanted to . . . which
In other matters, this issue has a refreshing departure from all of the
political matters and instead deals with . . . religion. Hum . . . I
think it's time for me to write some more music reviews, eh?
So dig in and enjoy this, the three-hundred-sixty-ninth issue of
The Libertarian Enterprise.

Christianity . . . the Mother of Harlots
by Russell D. Longcore
The Christian church of the 21st century is completely
sold out to the State. I grew up a Baptist kid. (I'm a Christian, but thank
God, I've been delivered from being Baptist!) I remember hearing sermons on
prophecy, and hearing preachers say that the Catholic Church was the woman
of Revelation 17:5, called "Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of
Harlots and Abominations of the Earth. After 52 years on this planet, and
tons of study, I've come to believe that it is the whole of the organized
Christian church . . . Christendom . . . that
is that prophetic Woman.
On The DaVinci Code and L. Neil Smith's Comments
by Alan R. Weiss
First, I'm a relatively new Christian who was formerly
an atheist (and before that agnostic, and ... but still a libertarian), so
what I'm about to say is based on my current research into my faith.
On Barbaro: The Horse That You Hold Dear
by Jonathan David Morris
Most people don't care about thoroughbred horse
racing. Three Saturdays each spring, countless Americans
gather 'round to watch a bunch of horses they've never
ridden or even seen up close in person compete in the
Triple Crown races. We curl our toes and clench our
lips. Our hearts beat quickly. And for an annual total
of roughly six minutes, most of us do seem to care.
The Da Vinci Code: What it MeansAnd What it Doesn't
by Lady Liberty
I like to read, and I'm always on the look-out for
good books. When I heard so much about The Da Vinci Code, I obviously
just had to take a look for myself. It's testament to just how good it
is that I wasn't disappointed when I finally did get the chance to read it.
Is Racism Worse Now Than in the '80s?
by Wendy McElroy
Racism and sexism may be deepening despite decades of
measures aimed at cleansing them from society. This conclusion is suggested
by the ugly and unrelenting public backlash that surrounds the Duke Lacrosse
case in which a black female was allegedly raped by three white males.
