Another “interesting” conversation

Last time I mentioned a conversation, it was with someone who did not believe this world is real. That was an interesting conversation, I must say, but the other day I received an e-mail from some guy who was obviously not interested in any kind of intelligent discussion. He took issue with my essay on […]

Still not comfortable with Romney

I absolutely will not vote for Giuliani, even if his opponent is Hillary Clinton. Some conservatives have come to the conclusion that Mitt Romney really has changed, but I still have strong reservations, most of which are summed up in Romney Secrets The Media Are Hiding From You by Gregg Jackson at Townhall.com. The fact […]

Another scandal in the works

Considering the lengths to which prosperity teachers go to twist the words of the Bible, it would not surprise me one bit if they were improperly reporting income. How long before these people’s followers realize that they are being had? Acting on tips about preachers who ride in Rolls Royces and have purportedly paid $30,000 […]

Don’t believe everything you read

The idea that the Religious Right is all but disbanded has even made it into conservative media lately. Personally, I don’t feel any different than I did a couple of years ago, and I don’t know of anyone who would have been associated with the RR before who has decided that from now on they […]

Patriotism does not mean contempt for traditions

Filed under Politics

Barack Obama is no patriot. Liberals apparently love coming up with new definitions of words. The picture above was taken during the national anthem. This is not presidential behavior. For Democrats to even be considering this man as a potential candidate for the presidency is a disgrace. Not only does he refuse to wear the […]

Apocalypse Now?

 I’m not a big fan of Pat Buchanan. Sometimes his opinions are way out there. He’s got his thinking cap on, though, in his latest column about global warming. I especially liked the following statement: Like the panics of bygone eras, this one has the aspect of yet another re-enactment of the Big Con. The […]

How I got started blogging

Well, the main thing that got me started blogging was that I needed some way to keep people updated on my latest essays and what was going on with my website. I got tired of having to play with html each time, so I decided to do the updates in blog form. I also liked […]

Should evangelicals support Mitt Romney?

I’ve seen several evangelical opinion columnists endorsing Mitt Romney lately. Personally, I don’t care that he’s Mormon. However, the timing of his “conversion” to the conservative cause is just too suspect. If he had made his conversion and run for president several years later after developing a strong social conservative record I’d have no qualms […]

Experiencing problems with gravatars

Filed under Blogging

I was having some problems with gravatars today, so I deleted the cache and tried to refresh it. Now only 3 people’s gravatars are working, including my own. I wonder if the server over at gravatar.com isn’t just overloaded today.

Apologizing for something for which you are not responsible?

Last night the associate pastor (let’s call him Y) at church mentioned that when he was in mission school in Australia (he wanted to become a missionary) there was a Korean and a Filipino attending at the same time. When it came time for him to return to Japan (he’s Japanese) he was asked to […]
