Bill Bennett's recent comment about reducing crime by aborting "every black baby in this country" nearly leaves me speechless. New York Daily News - Home - Ugly Bennett

What was he thinking?! Or was he? Thanks a lot Bennett. Because of his connections with the religious community, his outrageous political opinions reflect bad on Christians and not just him. What happened that led the author of The Book of Virtues to move so far away from virtuous communication?

Consider instead Paul's advice in Colossians 4:6--"Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer every one."
