In Honor Of Earthday, 13 Worst Earthday Predictions — Ever notice how those who celebrate Earth Day pretend its creator doesn’t exist?  And how their predictions tend to be hopelessly wrong and counterproductive?

As one would expect, even half of the non-gun owning households would have wanted one had they lived in Boston last week.

How to ruin your child’s chance of a happy love life: Have an affair – and the damage is WORSE the older they are when you stray — That can’t be right!  The needs and wants of adults outweigh any concerns about kids. They are resilient blah blah blah.

This culture pretends to care about kids but the actions don’t show it: Abortion, adultery, “same-sex marriage,” easy divorce and so much more.

Here’s another Leftist outlet that returns literally zero hits when searching for “Gosnell” — Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and his organization are doing a great job of advancing the Leftist cause of hiding these crimes.  Their title even references social justice, but they haven’t written a word about Kermit Gosnell and his mass infanticides.  They are too busy claiming to be prophets in trying to gut the 2nd Amendment and to disarm you.24

Abductions of Christian Girls Increased in Egypt Since Regime Change — The real war on women.  And where is the Left?  [Crickets chirping]  Oh, right, busy hiding the Kermit Gosnell story.

Supposedly there may be a movie version of the book, The Shack. A good analysis of the bad theology from that book is here. If you hear people talk about the movie please share those concerns with them.  (Hat tip: Erich from Facebook)

Earth-Day-1976

The Liberal “safe sex” programs are a lie, because they ignore the spiritual and emotional aspects of sex and give a false sense of security (birth control often fails and even if used correctly it doesn’t prevent all diseases).  But even if they weren’t lying, they would be inconsistent for saying that sex ed won’t increase sexual behavior but gun education would increase the misuse of guns.

Recent studies show that Conservatives have a better sense of humor – but you knew that, right? 

“I was surprised,” said Dan Ariely, a psychologist at Duke University, who collaborated on the study with Elisabeth Malin, a student at Mount Holyoke College. “Conservatives are supposed to be more rigid and less sophisticated, but they liked even the more complex humor.”

Be sure to check out Duane’s Mind if you haven’t already.  He does a terrific job of defending the faith in a most friendly way, and he is working hard to challenge people to consider the merits of Christianity in Australia, which is even more hostile to religion than the U.S.

Norm Geisler does a thorough analysis of the popular Christian fiction work, The Shack.  Other than 14 serious theological problems, he thinks it is a great book.

In the final analysis, this book is not a Pilgrim’s Progress, but doctrinally speaking The Shack is more of a Pilgrim’s Regress.

Mom Loves Being at Home had a great post on it that included the video below.  Christians should not be endorsing this book as having sound doctrine.

If you have read it and disagree with any of his points let me know what you think.  I’m thinking about reading it just to be able to converse about it. 

Do you think people are basically good?  Not at all.  Hat tip: Theology of Omaha

Pastor Timothy has a post with all the videos of Sarah Palin from Fox.  Gravatar You have to know she is good when the media put so much effort into discrediting her. The 18-1 bias on the Big 3 was proof of that. They realized she could swing the election and had to try and destroy her. I hope we haven’t seen the last of her.

Will Obama fund the destruction of human embryos – Probably.  Embryonic Stem Cell Research is still a bad idea for all the reasons discussed a couple years ago.  They have had no success with private money, which is why the researchers are desparate for government help.

Remember, this isn’t about curing diseases.  The smart money would go towards adult stem cells.  This is about abortion.  Because if you can’t de-humanize embryos, it is hard to rationalize abortion.

Baconnaise: I love bacon and I love mayonnaise, so this is quite possibly the utimate food product.  Mmmmmmm . . . Baconnaise. 

It reminds me of when my youngest daughter was about 4.  I was cooking some bacon after church and pointed out the trivia fact that Jesus wouldn’t have eaten bacon.  She replied in all seriousness, “That’s too bad, because I think He would have really liked it.”

This would be really funny if the topic weren’t so serious and if the “global warming” folks weren’t after an unprecedented and permanent political power grab.  The data shows that the earth has been cooling, but they refer to 2008 as the “least warm” year in the past decade.

Methodist group ordains lesbian for inclusivity’s sake – the picture of them in church is just sad.  They are going to a house of worship while shaking their fists in rebellion to God, and they are proud of what they are doing.

A retired Methodist bishop who participated in the ordination ceremony says those who stand against ordination of homosexuals are misreading scripture. “For too long, ” said Bishop Susan Morrison, “selective reading of the Bible has meant that gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people and their supporters have been excluded and punished for their honesty when they reject the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ practices of the church.”

Misreading scripture?  Heh.  I’ll be glad to debate that Bishop anytime.  I’m familiar with all the problems with pro-gay theology and would be glad to educate this apostate Bishop.
