Theology. Dr. Albert Mohler provides more commentary regarding BioLogos and its continued attack on traditional creationism. This time around he notes that BioLogos is trying to evade theological responsibility for taking a theological stance.
Theology. Dan Phillips has some sobering words regarding a recently convicted murderer and the moral significance of sin and unmerited grace.
Politics. It seems everywhere I got his past week, I see more complaints about the TSA. It seems they’re stepping up and attempting to defend new security theater tactics that involve looking at you nude or groping you. The TSA must go. I have suggested this to my legislators. (HT: Lucas)
Politics. Speaking of the TSA, have you seen the cover for their new children’s book? (HT: Alan)
Local/Health. My loving and beautiful wife (and ex-roommate, Dan, and another friend, Jay) sent me the latest in diet technology. The best part, of course, is that this is a professor at my Alma Mater.
Health. I don’t smoke, but this has gone from ludicrous to indescribably ridiculous. As if the existing labeling wasn’t clear enough, as if everyone doesn’t already know that cigarettes cause lung cancer, and as if people are not responsible to take care of themselves. If cigarettes are really bad enough to warrant this kind of labeling they should simply be outlawed. However, I can tell you in two words why they won’t be: “taxes” and “marijuana.” Just to clarify, the government is now responsible for telling us what, when, and how to breath and we have the privilege of paying for this “service.” (HT: co-woker, Michael A.).
