My Last Facebook Post

I know this sounds a little dramatic, so an explanation is in order. I started on social media nine years ago, all the while continuing this and (later) the other blogs and websites.  I've used several techniques to automatically disseminate these blog posts.  I've always had a problem with doing every post manually.  Keeping the …

The “Debt Direction” of the British Empire Needs to be Reversed

While musing over what's the "morally appropriate language" one should write in, Arundhati Roy was confronted with the following: Only a few weeks after the mother tongue/masterpiece incident, I was on a live radio show in London. The other guest was an English historian who, in reply to a question from the interviewer, composed a …

You Can’t Always Get What You Want When You’re the State Church

That was certainly the case with Peter Ball, whom John Major appointed to the see of Gloucester, much to then Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey's horror: LORD CAREY has expressed his horror that the former Prime Minister John Major was persuaded by a senior aide to choose Peter Ball over another candidate for the see …

Chesterton to be Canonised? Bossuet Hasn’t Been Either

His canonisation is being considered: Is he or is he not on the road to being canonized? In the coming weeks, the fate of Gilbert Keith Chesterton will be known. Soon, all eyes will turn upon Canon John Udris as he presents his written report to the bishop of Northampton, England, with, thereafter, a decision …

The Simple Solution for the Episcopalians’ BDS Problem

They're certainly obsessed with it: I intrude mention of the Episcopal Church here because of my presence at the late convention — where what could have been taken for the third, perhaps second, cousin of old-fashioned anti-Semitism prowled like a ramping and roaring lion, snarling at Israel, clapping its paws for the Palestinians. Resolution after …

The Valuable Lesson Silicon Valley Needs to Learn from the Thai Rescue

Sometimes patience is required to solve a problem: Instead of venting, Mr. Musk — indeed, Silicon Valley as a whole — can perhaps see the Thai operation as a lesson. This was a most improbable rescue against the longest odds. Safely navigating 12 kids and one adult, many of whom were not swimmers, through a …

An Update on the St. Andrew’s School Sex Scandal

I've covered this matter here and here; it's generated a fair amount of interest.  Today the school released the following, which I will reproduce in its entirety (with one minor correction): In late March we shared with you information regarding Bruce Presley, a former board member (1994 – 2000) and part-time instructor at Saint Andrew’s. …

More on the Reformation and Anglicanism

My response to the Rev. Thomas Reeves' ideas on this subject has in turn received a response from him.  That response is too extensive for a "comment box" type of response so I am devoting a post to the topic.  I'll quote parts of his response, but for brevity's sake they'll be short, but you …

My Dialogue with an ACNA Priest re the Reformation and Anglicanism

Not too long ago I reviewed a book entitled Was Jesus an Evangelical? by the Rev. Thomas Reeves, an ACNA priest in Roanoke, VA.  He's come back with some interesting points (most of which are in his book, in more detail) and he's given me the opportunity to post then and comment.  We'll start here: …
