The Adversary Culture

I’m sure I’ve bored even my most patient friends with the long articles that I link to, but everybody ought to read The Adversary Culture: The perverse anti-Westernism of the cultural elite by Keith Windschuttle. It provides a historical overview of how we got to the point where supposed “liberals” now believe that free speech applies to everyone except where Islam is being spoken of. If you are a homeschooler, you should read this and consider it part of your education in 20th century history. If you have taken a Worldview class at some point, this should be easy reading for you. Everybody should absorb this information in order to make sense out of the craziness that is our world.



Hmm. Galactica tied with Enterprise D.


You scored as Galactica (Battlestar: Galactica). You are leery of your surroundings, and with good reason. Anyone could be a cylon. But you have close friends and you know they would never hurt you. Now if only the darn XO would stop drinking.

Western freedom or dhimmitude?

I am sure that God’s Kingdom is not linked to the survival of Western freedoms, bought with such a high price by our ancestors. But, as a side issue, I will continue to desire and support the survival of Western freedoms, best expressed in the American Bill of Rights. Here is another article for you to read on this topic.



‘Sensitivity’ can have brutal consequences

Time and again I find that Mark Steyn says it all, and says it better than anyone else. He is apparently of no Christian persuasion, but some Christians could certainly learn common sense from him. I heartily recommend this for anyone who still cares about Western freedoms.



The Last Telegram


The Wall Street Journal reports this morning that Western Union has gotten out of the telegram business. The last telegram was sent January 27.

I never actually got a telegram even once in my life.



Test yourself on Salt

It’s quiz time again. The Salt Quiz at the BBC proves that I know a lot more about salt than I do about Winnie the Pooh. I got 8 out of 10 on this one.



Now this is architecture


So who says that downtown Garland doesn’t have any charm?



Please discuss

I wonder what you people (whoever you are) would say to this blog post. I find it interesting that she

had a strict evangelical upbringing. Christian school for 12 years, Christian girl scouts (called Pioneer Girls), Christian summer camp, Christian youth group and Christian after-school activities… I realize that no one is perfect, but through all of this I saw so much hypocrisy and personal insecurity. Especially throughout my high school career. The result being that neither of my children has ever seen the inside of a church….or been baptized…



Budget buster

Just when I’ve paid for more than half of the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture, a wonderful set, comes news of the Reformation Commentary on Scripture. Yikes! Can there be too much of a good thing?



Winnie the Pooh quiz

Today is A A Milne’s birthday. He was born in 1882. To celebrate, you need to take the Pooh Quiz over at the BBC. I’m sorry to say that I got 1 right out of 10.
