duplicity?

by Peggy Drinkard

Couldn’t help but laugh at the irony in this little turn of events. Apparently http://news.yahoo.com/assange-autobiography-hit-shelves-despite-row-015542106.html Mr. Assange is all upset because his publishers published something unseemly about him before he had checked off on it. But….I mean….what about freedom of information and …

I read the news today, oh boy…”

by Peggy Drinkard

Perusing the daily news, I was struck by these two adjacent article titles: “Indian ‘living god’ in critical condition, hospital says,” and “Man gets prison for helping self-help speaker kill himself.” The Indian living god has thousands of followers, and is said to have performed miracles, including raising people from …

A Prayer for Gray Powell

by Clay Staggs

Who’s Gray Powell, you may ask, and why would anyone need to be praying for him? Excellent question.

Gray Powell is a software engineer at Apple. He apparently had an unreleased version of Apple’s next generation iPhone, which should be announced in June, in his pocket when he …

But What About Doofuses?

by Clay Staggs

Here’s a funny piece of randomness I found on this blog called Great White Snark. It’s a Venn diagram that differentiates dweeb, nerds, dorks, and geeks.

I’ll leave it up to you commenters to decide where yours truly fits in the diagram for liking this.

A Change in Blogging Habits

by Clay Staggs

Wow it’s been a long time since I’ve put anything on the blog. It’s not that I haven’t had anything that I wanted to post, it’s just that time has been a severe limitation.

But I don’t think it need necessarily be so. My …

Michael Horton, author & professor at Westminster Seminary California has a new book called Christless Christianity. He recently did a Web Forum with the Washington Post and you can find the transcript here . This discussion covered much ground in 20 or so questions and I would encourage you to read it …

Cognitive Dissonance

by Clay Staggs

This is just about the best illustration possible of this concept.

Rebecca Hancock, who attended (past tense) Grace Community Church in Mandarin, FL has gone to the press to complain about the treatment she’s receiving from her former church. The complaint?

The church’s elders have informed her that …

Living Up To The Stereotype

by Clay Staggs

If there’s anything I wear on my sleeve more than my Republicanism, it’s my love of all things Apple. I am a serious fan of the Mac, iPod, etc. Being such, I am, predictably, disinclined toward Microsoft, and have been known to speak of them in less than …

How Far We’ve Come

by Clay Staggs

Glenn Reynolds cites to this post on the Classical Values blog. It recommends a book that looks really interesting on the pioneers who crossed the Rockies, and has some, um, interesting, observations about the role of wives in those pioneer days.

Suffice it to say that much has changed. I …

Beam Me Up, Scotty

by Clay Staggs

I always liked the Star Trek TV shows and movies. Not in a put-on-Spock-ears-and-go-to-a-convention way, but I was a casual fan. The owner of this house, though, takes Star Trek geekdom to, well, warp speed.

Those Little Things Mean A Lot

There is a prevailing thought in our society that one must be a pastor or employed by a ministry in order to help further the Kingdom. We often think that because we are not good public speakers, donâ??t have the gift of teaching, or are employed in the â …

Unverschämt

by Clay Staggs

That’s the best word I know to describe the sentencing of Lynne Stewart to only 28 months in prison. I use the German word “unverschämt” because it lacks an English translation that conveys the exact combination of disgust, unconscionability, obscenity, and brazenness that it indicates. (For a full …

Cloudy Days

Today is a cloudy and cool day at the beach.

This has somewhat frustrated my plans for laying in the sun and doing nothing. Instead, I’ve been forced to stay inside and do nothing. However, that doing nothing part is pretty good wherever you do it.

Free the Hops

by Clay Staggs

I really enjoy good beer. I learned today that there is a group of like-minded folks out there who are attempting to get the Alabama Legislature to repeal a couple of restrictions that keep most high-end beers out of the Alabama market. The group is called “Free the Hops.” Their …

This Just In….

by Clay Staggs

Apparently a team (yes, a team) of researchers have determined that celebrities are more narcissistic than the public at large. See the full story here (if you must).

What passes for academic studies (and news) never ceases to amaze me. It reminds me of the year that I was at …

On the Lighter Side

Wow, my head hurts. After reading the posts written before me I am not sure I have much to contribute to the wisdom of the ages or these pages. I am a simple man and I do not often have motivation or energy to ponder theology, literature, politics, or Christian …
