Kate Ott (not me) is taking on a huge task that I don’t envy. Talking to parents about how to talk about sex. This is not your health class sex education. It is, in my opinion, the more important piece of that that many people on one side of the social equation believe that we… Continue reading How to talk about THAT topic. A guide for parents.
The Pursuit of Happiness
I’ve been annoyed lately (not always a good thing before writing a post). Probably centered around the Fourth of July (the formal U.S.A. Independence Day), there is always a spate of articles about the U.S.A. being founded on Christian principles, which is somewhat true. Then there is the argument over whether Thomas Jefferson was a… Continue reading The Pursuit of Happiness
Did You Know (Version 4.0)
This was released in Fall 2009, and if feels out of date already! Since I posted Version 3.0 in December 2008, I figured that getting this out there wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Even Religious People Have Different Views?
Shocking! (sarcasm) Surveys: U.S. Religious Activists Have ‘Widely Divergent’ Views As much as I like some of the content on ChristianPost.com, today we have another article (see this post for another) which is too vague to be useful, other than to draw gross conclusions that can only be divisive, rather than edifying. I really hate… Continue reading Even Religious People Have Different Views?

Teaching the Faith
That led her to join a nine-month process known in the Catholic Church as RCIA, or Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. Churches open doors to more converts In the Nazarene Church, we go through a membership class which lasts a few weeks. In the Lutheran Church, the same. However, these classes do not truly… Continue reading Teaching the Faith
The Chickens Are Coming Home to Roost
A bunch of drunk teenagers vandalized a site once inhabited by the American poet Robert Frost. In A Violation of Both Law and the Spirit, Dan Barry seems offended that these, for lack of a better word, punks didn’t show respect to history or elders. These punks are a direct result of a bunch of… Continue reading The Chickens Are Coming Home to Roost
The Whole Money Thing
In Me and Ron Paul and The Dollar is Falling! The Dollar is Falling!, I discussed central banking and the currency base. However, in 800 Dollar Gold in Plain English ( archived copy ), Jerry Bowyer adds a little more to the discussion. His primary point is that the theories being pushed in support of… Continue reading The Whole Money Thing
The Dollar is Falling! The Dollar is Falling!
In Me and Ron Paul, I knocked some of the historical basis for the assault on the Federal Banking System. While I still believe that a central system does need to exist, Thomas Breton’s article, Chickens Are Returning to the Roost, may cause me to modify my perspective somewhat. While I still believe that basing… Continue reading The Dollar is Falling! The Dollar is Falling!
