If you don’t have the Wintery Knight Blog in your blog reader then I encourage you to do so right away. I’ll wait here. Seriously, everything this guy publishes is terrific. I have to limit myself to one link per roundup.
Liberal Christianity vs. orthodox Christianity: Real Christianity tells you that forgiveness for your sins is available in Jesus. Liberal Christianity will tell you that you don’t need forgiveness.
WordPress has a very cool new feature where you can respond to comments via email. When I get notice of a new comment in my email I can just reply to the email and my comment automatically posts to my blog. I love saving time!
Fighting for the Faith has a good analysis of the false teachings of Chuck Currie. The host plays the whole audio of Chuck’s “sermon” with comments interspersed, so you know you are getting the full context.
Side note: Chuck still hasn’t backed up his accusations that I left comments on his blog that were “racist, sexist, homophobic” and included “offensive language and more.” I was curious to see if he would ever provide evidence or apologize, but all he said on his blog was, “Neil, Thanks for all your e-mails on this. I’m sorry that I don’t have the time to write back each day in person but thanks for your feedback.”
False teacher. False accusations. Shocking. Maybe this week’s sermon will be on honesty. Or asking forgiveness when you lie about someone. No, it will probably be about why Jesus is pro-legalized partial birth abortion, anti-parental notification, anti-informed consent, etc. (Yes, Chuck, some religious groups do support the choice to destroy the unborn — false and apostate religious groups, including segments of the Methodist Church.)
And, in keeping with the Times’ journalistic malpractice, quite a few things are misrepresented in favor of the unions. Take “card check” for instance. Check out how the Times describes the fact that this horrible law will take away one of the oldest democratic rights there is.
“Labor’s No. 1 priority is a piece of legislation called the Employee Free Choice Act, also known as the card-check bill. The bill would give workers the right to join a union as soon as a majority of employees at a workplace signed cards saying they wanted one. Business groups have attacked the legislation because it would take away employers’ right to insist on holding a secret-ballot election to determine whether workers favored unionization.”
Once again, liberals think abortion is moral but displaying pictures of it is immoral. I think that pictures of the Holocaust are unpleasant, but I am quite certain that the killings were immoral and showing the pictures is not immoral.
Lots of racism from some GLBTQ folks – the violent and viscious reactions continue from their Proposition 8 loss. I would expect black folks to be irritated that the gay lobby is trying to co-opt the Civil Rights agenda. Do the GLBTQ folks think it is a winning strategy to alienate blacks and say how uneducated they are for voting Yes on 8?
And even if pro-Prop 8 voters have less eduction than average, please remember that intelligence and wisdom are two different things. You don’t need a PhD to know the definition of marriage. I’m also reminded of this quote by J. Budziszewski:
Though it always comes as a surprise to intellectuals, there are some forms of stupidity that you must be highly intelligent and educated to commit.
P.S. to Arnold: Skin color is morally neutral, sexual behavior is not.
Crazy lefties attack old lady at No on 8 protest. The only amusing thing in this horrible incident was when the hopelessly PC anchorman said, “a lot of hate evidently on both sides.” Uh, sure, buddy. The quiet old lady carrying the cross was really dishing out the hate to that mob.
Hat tip to Kris for the cartoon below. I had no idea that 1% in a margin of victory made such a big difference! I do find the “we need to unite behind the President” theme a little ironic, because the reality is that we don’t need to do that any more than the Democrats did when Bush was President.
This site is a little racy, but makes a great point about the messages from 52 to 48 blather going around. This is the sanitized version: Starting prior to the 2001 inauguration, you and your bought and paid for media demonized President Bush and conservatives over anything and everything, and now you want to play nice and demand unity? Give me a break. We won’t be vile like the Left has been, but we will complain now and keep complaining all we like. Will I pray for our leaders? Yes, because I’m commanded to. But my prayers will include requests that their dreams be haunted by visions of the slaughter of the unborn, the shattered lives of those who have abortions and the last breaths of those born alive but left to die.
P.S. Does this mean California is united against government recognition of oxymoronic same-sex marriage? I recall that the margin was quite similar.
