"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Still being held

For those who haven't read the morning's papers yet, Mr. Rahman is still being held. The authorities are conducting a "mental health" evaluation to see if he is fit to stand trial. Many observers think this might be a dodge to let the government release him without angering the conservative Muslim leaders whose support is so important to the survival of their democratic government. But in the meantime Mr. Rahman will stay locked up in a dank prison. And prosecutors insist that, if found competent, he will be tried and executed for converting to Christianity.
