Dumb Quote of the Day…
“The truth is that shoddy theology does not exist without a dodgy foreign policy.”
Says who? Says Salma Yaqoob, the national vice-chair of Respect and chair of Birmingham Stop the War Coalition, also in today’s Guardian.

[One aspect of the new iJamming! format is that you’re likely to find me adding to my earlier commentary from above: whereas in the past I would do up a whole day’s worth of writing within my computer application and post it in one go, my newest comments are now automatically placed at the top of the page. In other words, you may need to read upwards from the last post you missed to understand the most recent post. All the more reason to use an RSS feeder and be constantly up to date with the site .
