Angry Apostles of Atheism Attack – terrific analysis by Ben Witherington
Why it is more important to be negative than positive when sharing the Gospel. Somebody pass this along to Joel.
More media bias from the NY Times. In a blatant anti-marriage piece they trumpeted that the majority of women live without a husband. They had plenty of anti-marriage quotes to help sell the message. Just a couple problems, though. The author had to include “women” aged 15-19 in the unmarried category (You mean my 16 yr. old daughter has chosen to live without a husband for now? Shocking!) and 9 million elderly widows (OK, they are living without a husband, but generally not by design, and they aren’t that marketable with respect to getting a new husband since they vastly outnumber men their ages). He classified wives whose husbands were temporarily gone (work, military, jail) as “living without a husband.” This was true in a hyper-technical sense, but obviously a sleight of hand move. Yes, there has been an increase in divorce and unmarried women, but this bias is pathetic. Hat tip: Verum Serum
