Too Many Cooks Make a Megachurch

There's been very little said in the Evangelical press about the election of a committed Christian, Lee Myung-bak, as President of the Republic of Korea.  Given our current woes with our own "Evangelical," this may be understandable. His position has caused some consternation with non-Christians in Korea (which make up 70% of the population.)  But …

The Steps of Brian McLaren

This week's podcast is Every Step I Take from Brian McLaren's album Learning How To Love, which is available from Heavenly Grooves. Ken Scott, the Archivist for "Jesus Music," wondered who had ever heard of Brian McLaren.  Well, many, as it turns out, for now he listed as one of Time Magazine's top 25 evangelical …

Illegal Immigrants Might Get Tax Rebates

I'm sure that many conservatives--to say nothing of Lou Dobbs--will go postal over the idea that illegal immigrants would get tax rebates, as is proposed (unintentionally?) in the House package. In their bipartisan zeal to quickly cut a deal on an economic stimulus bill, GOP lawmakers overlooked something that will certainly inflame the conservative base--illegal immigrants could …

John Edwards: The Wishful Thinking is Over

Greg Cruey was hoping for John Edwards to stick it out: If Edwards withdraws and the race becomes a two-candidate race, either Hillary or Obama will most definitely win. Personally, I think both of those candidates have electibility issues in the general election. And they look determined to cripple each other before the Democratic Convention. …

More Conservative Voting Problems in Palm Beach

I've documented some of Ann Coulter's voting problems in Palm Beach here and here. Now Rush Limbaugh can't quite get the hang of it: On his syndicated talk show this afternoon, Limbaugh said he was trying to vote in today’s primary when the screen seemed to freeze or “stick” on the list of presidential candidates. …

George Bush: Not The Evangelical We Thought

A couple of weeks ago, I opined the following: ...the whole Evangelical game plan for life is well suited to get people off of the very bottom of society and equally ill-suited to get them to the very top.  People who posit George W. Bush as an example of the contrary forget that a) he …

Obama in Danger? Only News to Some

Mark Finkelstein wonders the following: I'm measuring my words carefully. Harry Smith has raised the possibility that Barack Obama's life could be in danger... When you tell a man with Ted Kennedy's family history that "you well know" about politicians becoming "targets," the implication is unmistakable. This time, Kennedy [to his credit I would say] …

Decision Time for the Democrats on Racial Attitudes

Alan Comes thought that Dick Morris had lost his mind when Morris stated that Bill and Hillary were running a race based campaign against Barack Obama (as Morris outlines below): If Hillary loses South Carolina and the defeat serves to demonstrate Obama’s ability to attract a bloc vote among black Democrats, the message will go …

Everybody Needs Heavy Equipment

It's gratifying to see that a few people are seeing daylight on the issue of the need of heavy equipment after it was used to help the Palestinians escape Gaza.  The whole adventure of boycotting Caterpillar because their equipment was used to construct "the fence" was idiotic to start with. Construction equipment--and my family spent …

Bible? What Bible?

The complaint from within the Church of England that it's hard to find a Bible in an Anglican church strikes me as odd, Henry VIII's decree of having one in every church notwithstanding. Since the complaint originated with Tim Cox, from Blackpool, one of England's more visited resorts, it's fitting to respond with a reminiscence …
