Religion of Peace?

Over and over again politicians and TV commentators tell us that Islam is a religion of peace that has been hijacked by extremists. I reject this view and maintain it is, at its core, a violent and vicious religion. Here's a story ofa westernized Muslim who founded a TV station with the goal of protraying his religion in a more positive light. The only problem is he just beheaded his wife - in Buffalo, New York!

Still Defending Harry

Although the furor over the books has died down, new readers are still discovering the wonderful world of Harry Potter. I’ve already posted my defense of the books and why I believe they are wonderfully edifying reads for Christians. Here now is Jerram Barr, Professor of Christian Studies and Contemporary Culture at Covenant Theological Seminary, and his much more indepth and eloquent endorsement of the Harry Potter series.

A friend of mine just posteda link to a blog with this mind-blowing quote from our Hypocrite-in-Chief at the National Prayer Breakfast:

(F)ar too often, we have seen faith wielded as a tool to divide us from one another - as an excuse for prejudice and intolerance. Wars have been waged. Innocents have been slaughtered ... all in the name of perceived righteousness...But no matter what we choose to believe, let us remember that there is no religion whose central tenet is hate. There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being. This much we know.

Obama actually said:

“There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being.
This much we know.”
If he feels that way, why did President Obama made it a prior to end U.S. restrictions on funding abortion? Good grief.

"...he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways." James 1:8

Jurassic Park as NONfiction?

I confessed in an earlier blog post that “Jurassic Park” is one of my favorite movies. When Sam Neill’s character, paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant first sees the dinosaurs, the actor’s expression sells me on the movie. I’m right there with Dr. Grant experiencing the wonder of seeing long-extinct animals. Maybe one day “Jurassic Park” won’t just be a work of fiction according to this London Telegraph article.
