I have several stories in my blog feed that I didn’t get a chance to talk about, but I found interesting. I’m not sure how much more blogging I will be doing between now and 2008, so here are some stories to tide you over until then. Religion, politics, pop culture and the odd all rolled into one.
Also from Bible Belt Blogger:
Good Mormons do not believe the ban on blacks was immoral, Brigham Young University religion professor Robert Millet said, adding, “It isn’t something we’re ashamed of. It isn’t something we feel was inappropriate.”
While conservative elites have expressed their disain for Huckabee, he continues to rise outside of NYC, DC and LA.
Who better to run an online Christian dating service than Hustler? Yes, that Hustler. And just to be clear: Yes, I am be sarcastic. No, that’s not a link to the Hustler website. Don’t want to be misunderstood there.
If you get these three references, you have spent too much time on the internet this past year. I have just one thing to say: "Don’t tase me, bro and leave Brittney alone in the like the Iraq and such."
Golden Compass is a semi-flop and it’s my (well our) fault. Or it could be those bad reviews, nah, it’s the Christians. (That last link by the way, goes to an excellent primer for Christians on handling these type of situations.)
Christianity Today and secular critics alike are praising Juno. I have to say that I’m excited about the movie as well. Who would have thought that 2007 would be the year of the unplanned pregnancy, pro-life movies?
I’m not Catholic and have no real personal experience with Catholicism, but from the outside looking in indulgences are one of the more odd things to me.
G.I. Noooooo! I hope this proves to be false. I can’t take another childhood hero ruined.
Fred Thompson: "I’m okay with the Lord." That statement always begs the question: "Okay, but is He okay with you?"
2008 Candidates and their keepsakes. You gotta love Fred’s sense of humor and see Hillary not give an answer because she has no idea how to answer it politically or get in some refence to Obama’s youthful drug use.
Speaking of Obama, his travels through South Carolina and other places "was like a religious experience" as he played the part of the messiah and Oprah pulled John the Baptist duties.
