Iraq Churches

While the outcome does not necessarily mean it was not just to go to war, one thing that appears to be true is that life for Christians does not seem to be easier in Iraq. However what man intends for evil God can use for good. There is still much hope for the future.

Terrorists control a State

Isn't this what everyone was afraid of if Palestine was a separate country? Hamas will have access to better weapons, funding and an aire of legitamacy. What else could be a more clearly defined "Terrorist State"? If this is really how the Palestinians would govern themselves...maybe they shouldn't. Perhaps Democracy is just rule by the mob. Or maybe I’m just a reactionary.

No Brokeback

Drudge is reporting that Bush has not seen Brokeback mountain. No shocker there. But I bet the President ends up seeing Walk the Line!

Mao vs Bush

Always interesting to know what the President is reading. (and suprises Democrats that he can read)

Again with the theme. The author here seems pretty dead on with his diagnosis of the traps we face in our American culture today. We could use a healthy fear of failure. Is the safety net to big?

Judas getting better PR?

Now I really find this story to be bizarre. Just coming from a secular media source ok. But the idea of God using someone's evil actions to some good end is a pretty basic thing for the Vatican to send confused signals on. Perhaps the meaning was lost in translation somewhere between the Vatican official and the secular news sources.

U.N. is no friend to democracy.

The U.N. thanked Bolton for bring the issue to their attention. Right! Who was on this committee anyway?

Man of the Hour

Schumer was grilling Alito on his view that precident is not supreme. Schumer was clearly disturbed by this view. That is until Alito pointed out with common sense: "Thank God it isn't or Plessy v. Ferguson would never have been overturned."

Raise our Ebenezer.

Ok it is just a kick I am on that probably few others care about. But I am very into the question of how we ought to "do" church lately. For example here is a story from Christianity today on what to do with those old hymns and all that language no one understands. To this author's conclusion I give a hardy "Amen!".

"Our faith is filled with names and terms that were unfamiliar to us when we joined the family - atonement, propitiation, Sabbath, Passover, Melchizedek. What are we to do with such terms? We teach!"

Pat Robertson says God is punishing Sharon

Luke 13:2-5

2 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? 3 I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”

Buy his music

Because who else sings truths like:
"my first allegiance is not to a flag, a country, or a man.
my first allegiance is not to democracy or blood
it's to a king and a kingdom"


"i'll say the words that rattle your nerves
words like sin and faith alone"


"no one is good enough to save himself
awake my soul tonight to boast nothing else"


"So could you love this bastard child
Though I don’t trust you to provide
With one hand in a pot of gold
and with the other in your side

I am so easily satisfied
by the call of lovers so less wild
That I would take a little cash
Over your very flesh and blood "
