It’s Not about Sex

Just up the road from here, an Episcopal "priest" (I hate that term for Anglican ministers) tell us us about why It's Not about Sex: I believe the archbishop's essay underscores what really is going on within the Anglican Communion and beyond. Debate about sexuality, or more precisely, homosexuality, is not really the issue; it …

The Saudis and Their Dangerous Game

It's little wonder that U.S. Officials Voice Frustrations With Saudis’ Role in Iraq. The wonder is that they haven't sooner. Saudi Arabia is trying to do two things at once: Spread Wahhabi/Salafi Islam throughout the Muslim world through a well-financed system of patronage (mosques, imams, etc.)  Salafism attempts to return Islam to the faith and …

Russian youth: Stalin good, migrants must go

In thinking about the recent poll Russian youth: Stalin good, migrants must go, one is reminded of the following concerning another brutal Russian tyrant, Ivan the Terrible: By the 1580's Russian society had assumed the essential shape it was to retain until 1861; despite war and revolution vestiges of it have survived until today. During …

Next Time, Hire a Real Indian

The lesson of the Ward Churchill saga Ward Churchill Saga is simple: if you want real ethnic diversity and the viewpoints that come with it, hire someone with real non-white background. Living in "Cherokee Country," the University of Colorado would have had a better shot at this if they had walked into just about any …

TitusOneNine – A Tech Update from Greg Griffith re: a Denial of Service attack on the SF/T19 server

Earlier this year, in the post Create Your Own Anglican Communion Network I said the following: Note that your computer can pick up more than your own router.  This works both ways, and illustrates our next point: you need to set up your wireless network with whatever security you can manage, otherwise a TEC revisionist …

Maybe It’s Time to Emigrate

Lydia Playfoot's loss of her legal action to wear a chastity ring brings to mind two previous posts: Liberals and Sex Go Together (her opponents) What They Really Don’t Like is the Chastity. Don’t Like the Free Speech Either. (previous direct comment on the subject) But it also brings up something else, this time from …

If Poverty is Their Theme, They’re in Trouble

The Boston Globe's report that poverty is the key theme for Democrats is a combination of wishful thinking and a blind faith in the success of past programs. The thinking is wishful for one simple reason: the Democrat party is largely controlled by elites who have no concept of what poverty means or how to …

The One Thing They Forgot to Tell Us

The death of Tammy Faye Bakker Messner--and her tumultuous life and career--is a reminder that the greatest weakness of "prosperity teaching" is that it never tells you how to handle the success it brings. Two years ago I discussed the whole business of unrealistic expectations wrapped in defective methodologies, another weakness of this kind of …

Yahweh in the Morning: Our God is Our King

People who attended any of the conferences--youth and leaders---at the Catholic Charismatic (and Franciscan) University of Steubenville in the early 1980's will remember the group Emmanuel.  Our podcast this week kicks off Emmanuel's second album, Yahweh in the Morning, with the track Our God is Our King. Yahweh in the Morning (EM002) was released in …
