Maybe I need to read this after a second cup of coffee

Scanning my Rss feed, I ran across this headline at First Things:

The rest of the subtle intellectual article seems to be aimed at intellectuals among the "reform" religious tradition of the USA. Book marked for later reading.

But the headline was startling to men when I read it, because for those of us who worked in Liberia, Charles Taylor refers to a very different person:

from the NYTimes:

Mr. Taylor was found guilty of “aiding and abetting, as well as planning, some of the most heinous and brutal crimes recorded in human history,” said Richard Lussick, the judge who presided over the sentencing

Maybe Professor Charles Taylor might change his mind about the goodness of men if he met the other Charles Talyor.
