Posts Tagged ‘Global Warming’

1.  Just incase you haven’t had enough already… another political ad asking questions about Senator Barack Obama.

HT: Nuke

2.  Because I didn’t do any political items in the last edition of Twenty Items of Interest.  I present to you… the many faces of Hillary Clinton.

HT: Kevin Stilley

I hope you enjoyed this picture as much as I did.  Ahem, moving along…

3.  I discovered, thanks to Brent Thomas, a blog called Stuff Christians Like.  It is a strange mix of the serious and the humorous.  One serious blog post is on “Lying because I love you”  He said many Christians do it, but if we are to be honest with ourselves we lie to protect ourselves not the other person involved.  The non-serious post is “turning ushers into the Secret Service” it made me laugh out loud.

4. Brooke Bouma blogged about Einstein videos – are they bad or not?  I think every once in awhile they are fine, but I swear it seems like some people raise their kids on these things.  So the end result will likely be a bunch of people with like two-second attention spans (ok I’m exaggerating).  Seriously though, have you noticed that the number of cases of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) increased with the number of children’s TV shows increasing?  Do we not think there is some correlation?

5.  it drives me nuts when people don’t use caps in e-mails and blogs.  like it is some hip, cool postmodern thing to do.  what do you think?  use caps or not?  is it really that burdensome to use caps?  are they too sexy for capitalization?  are we afraid that we will pull a pinkie to reach over and press that shift key?  the chicago tribune talks about using caps versus not using caps.

it is a pet peeve of mine along with the e-mails i get THAT ARE IN ALL CAPS LIKE THAT PERSON IS SCREAMING AT ME, but i digress.

6.  A dad has been jailed for six months for daughter (now 19) skipping school and not graduating.  A judge ordered her father to be responsible for her education when she was 17.  Apparently he will be in jail until she passes her G.E.D. which apparently she is unable to do.  Crazy… while I think parents need to be held accountable when the kids are younger -  I think a 17-year-old needs to take responsibility for her actions.  My thoughts are why are we, as taxpayers, footing the bill for a kid’s education when that kid clearly has no desire or motivation to be there?  That is why I am, in principle, against raising the compulsory age of education to 18.  (Source: Alisyn Camerota)

7.  Hey NEWS flash!!!!!!  Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons are vastly different than born-again Christians!  Duh.  Somebody actually paid to have this survey done?

8.  Bible names top the list for newborn boys.  Names like… Jacob, Michael, Joshua, and Matthew were the favorites.  I think that is awesome.  My wife and I have been kicking around having a fourth child, and I think if we do and the baby is a boy we should name him Nimrod, a great Biblical name.  We like being different.  I also think that Ham is a good name.  I am also partial to Riphatgh, Togarmah, Dodanim and Methuselah.

9.  Apparently there is a Jedi Church, and Darth Vader was spared jail time for attacking its founder.  To my readers from Great Britain… I thought the U.S. religious scene could be pretty weird, but I have to say this is one of the strangest things I’ve seen in some time.  May the force be with you!

10.  One of our mentors, Darin Wogen, shared his testimony at our banquet last week.  He did an awesome job!

11.  My friend Eric is concerned about Evangelicals who seem to be grasping for political influence and power.  Particularly with the Evangelical Climate Initiative and their seemingly quick embrace of the global warming rhetoric.   I won’t use the word he used for these Evangelicals actions because I try to keep my blog family friendly ;).

12.  I encourage you to read Out of Ur’s commentary on the Evangelical Manifesto.  Richard Land shares why he didn’t sign it.

13.  John Edwards endorses Barack Obama… gee I’m shocked (please read sarcasm)!  You can read a first hand account of this earth-shattering news at One Mom’s blog.  Why exactly is Hillary Clinton still in this?

14.  Bob Barr announces his candidacy for President of the United States on the Libertarian ticket.  He is taking an anti-Iraq stance.  This may slow a flow of conservatives who don’t want to vote for McCain from going to him, but may garner support for Blue Dog Democrats who are against the war.

HT: Kevin Tracy

15.  Pistol Pete blogs on mysterious love letters found that could possibly be between Judas and Mary Magdalene.  It made me laugh out loud.

16.  I love this cartoon… Appreciation by David Hayward

17.  Interesting post by Velvet Hammer about the connection between Nazism and Islam.

18.  It’s official… Californians no longer live in a democracy, but an oligarchy.

19.  This commercial reminds me of when my son was born.  The nurse took him over to clean him up and while he on the table she had to jump to miss this nice arch of pee.  Yep… that’s my boy.  This kid has a great future putting out campfires.

HT: Joe Carter

20.  Brian McLaren’s non-sequitur.

McLaren answers a question about truth:

Obviously that’s a challenge. The flip side of that question is look at the Catholic Church: For all of its orthodoxy, it could have bishops covering up for molesting priests. And evangelicals, for all their claims of orthodoxy, can be barbaric to gay people and can blindly support a rush to war in Iraq and can be, as we speak, fomenting for war with Iran. … Obviously, I have a lot of critics and they often say, ‘You’re wanting to water down the Gospel to accommodate to post-modernity.’ I say, ‘No, I really don’t want to do that. But what I do want to do is acknowledge first the ways we’ve already watered down the Gospel to accommodate modernity.’ … I think the naivete of some of those critics is that they’re starting with a pure pristine understanding of the Gospel. It seems to me we’re all in danger of screwing up.

Melinda at Stand to Reason points out that a common mistake that emergent types tend to make regarding absolute truth – that it is taken to mean that we are infallible in our knowledge of the truth.  That isn’t what it means though.  Absolute defines the truth, not our knowledge.  She suggests that we should refer to absolute truth (which Josh McDowell defines as “something that is true for all people, in all places, at all times.”) as objective truth.

1.  My friend Noah Braymen has written on false unity in the local church – read part 1 here and part 2 here.

2.  Layla Elizabeth Gonzalez over at The Hill Chronicles shares that in the midst of Eliot Spitzer resigning as Governor of New York amidst a prostitution scandal, and the new Governor, David Patterson, and his wife admitting to extramarital affairs; therapists are now saying that infidelity is acceptable.  Craziness!

3.  Man awarded $40,000 for being wrongly tasered by a Utah Highway Patrol trooper according to the Salt Lake Tribune after the state decided to settle the case.  The incident which was captured by the patrol car’s camera has been seen 1.7 million times on YouTube.

And to add to that number by posting the video here.

Jared Massey, the guy who was tasered was found not to have committed any crimes during the traffic stop, and also the video clearly shows that the officer did not seek to arrest Massey before he tasered him.

Massey should have just signed the citation and then argue it out in court, but when I first watched this after it happened I wondered… why did the officer taser him?  He didn’t appear to be threatening and even his tone of voice seemed reasonable though somewhat argumentative.

What do you think?

HT: Hicktown Press

4.  I’m now also blogging at RedBlueChristians.com

The purpose of this blog?

The purpose of the RedBlueChristian.com is to provide Christian bloggers — whether Conservative RedChristians or Progressive BlueChristians — the same blog space to post, discuss, and debate essential and important issues related to the Kingdom of God and American politics.  

We desire to promote a healthy biblical approach to politics as opposed to the adversarial “us” verses “them” stance which has resulted unfortunately in sincere Christians talking past each other more often than not. 

We want contributors and commenters to think biblically about the crucial public issues of our day without being constrained to boundaries set up for us by any political party platforms or rhetoric.

My first post there was a cross post from here.  I won’t always do it that way, but more likely than not, content I post there will also show up here.

5.  The Catholic Church can build a church in Saudi Arabia… if they recognize Mohammed as a prophet.  Yeah, I’m sure they’ll do that.  Read the story here

HT: Scarlett Crusader

6.  Nebraska gets a Home Education Week.  I think Iowa should as well.  I think pigs might fly first, so I won’t hold my breath on that one.  Good for Nebraska for recognizing the great education that kids are receiving through home education.

7.  John Piper on The Intensity of Christ’s Love and the Intentionality of His Death.  HT: Isaiah

8.  In my Bible study that I attend on Thursday mornings we were discussing a message given by Joe White at a Promise Keepers that we all attended.  I couldn’t find that particular message, but I found another one that was powerful as well.

9.  Above is a great gift this spring.  Global warming mugs.  Apparently when you pour hot coffee into them the ocean starts to spread across the continent as ice caps melt and water levels rise.  You can by yours here.

HT: to Orlando @ Ft. Hard Knox – His thoughts on this as a birthday gift.

This could be a nice “Happy” Birthday gift for your liberal friends to remind them they are all going to die a tragic death because of SUVs, cow farts, and light bulbs.

10.  Proof that bloggers are mentally ill.  Hmmm.

11.  I’m starting to look for Mentor Recruitment Ambassadors in Central Iowa.

12.  I have never gotten into the TV show Lost on ABC because I have been told unless you’ve been watching it regularly you won’t understand all that is going on.  It has been a huge hit with a number of my friends.  Well ABC now has all of their episodes online for free – all four seasons.  I just finished the first season and am on the third episode in the second season.  I’m a Lost addict now.

13.  Joe Carter blogs on “The Cold War Against Recruiters“.  He contends that Code Pink is not the military recruiters main problem, the indifference of Americans are the problem.  He knows this first hand having been a Marine Recruiter.

14.  Mark Dever on what evangelism isn’t.  He contends that we need to stop mistaking other Christian activities for the spreading of the gospel.  He mentions five things that are mistaken for evangelism: imposition, personal testimony, social action and public involvement, apologetics, and the results of evangelism.

15.  Ugly husbands are satisfied husbands.

HERE’S SOME ADVICE for women: think twice about marrying that good-looking guy. A team of psychologists recruited 82 newlywed couples and rated each spouse’s physical attractiveness and satisfaction with the marriage. They then observed how the two interacted with each other while discussing personal issues. It turns out that couples where the wife was more attractive were characterized by more supportive interaction on the part of both spouses; but, if the husband was more attractive, he was less satisfied and both spouses exhibited less supportive interaction. The psychologists suggest that a relatively attractive husband may feel he has more extramarital options, causing him to be less supportive of his wife, who, in turn, is less supportive of her husband. On the other hand, because women are less focused on the physical appearance of their mate, a more attractive wife is less likely to harbor resentment about her spouse and, meanwhile, has a husband who counts his blessings.

16.  I posted a few days ago on black liberation theology.  I came across a quote by James Cone who is the father of this brand of liberation theology that further illustrates my issue with it.

Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community … Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.

17.  Why We’re Not Emergent (by Two Guys Who Should Be) by Kevin Deyoung, a pastor and Ted Kluck, a journalist is a book I want to read pretty soon.  From what I hear it is a solid critique of the emerging church movement (at least the liberal fringes of it).

The Emergent Church is a strong voice in today’s Christian community. And they’re talking about good things: caring for the poor, peace for all men, loving Jesus. They’re doing church a new way, not content to fit the mold. Again, all good. But there’s more to the movement than that. Much more.

Kevin and Ted are two guys who, demographically, should be all over this movement. But they’re not. And Why We’re Not Emergent gives you the solid reasons why. From both a theological and an on-the-street perspective, Kevin and Ted diagnose the emerging church. They pull apart interviews, articles, books, and blogs, helping you see for yourself what it’s all about.

HT: Melinda at Stand to Reason

18.  Chuck Colson’s commentary on a “Storm of Unity” talking about how Sunday morning is becoming a non-segregated hour in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

You can listen to it as well.

19.  John Mark Reynolds shares three reasons the Republican Party might survive November.  Not good news to Democrats who were expecting a coronation in November.

20.  Dr. Craig Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Denver Seminary is interviewed by Justin Taylor.  The interview mainly covers the New Testament’s reliability.  Pretty interesting.

1.  Sweet photo, not doctored – read the story.

HT: Stephanie 

2.  House Democrats obviously don’t give a rip about our National Security.

HT: Stix

3.  Conservative herald William F. Buckley, Jr. dies at the age of 82 on Wednesday in his study… probably skewering liberal thought, I’m sure.  See Chicago Tribune coverage with video of White House reaction.  In related news, Christian Rock pioneer, Larry Norman died at the age of 60 on Sunday

4.  A likely unwanted endorsement awarded to Senator Barack Obama, Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Chicago-based Nation of Islam, endorsed him at their recent convention.

Speaking to thousands of members of the Nation of Islam at their annual convention Sunday in Chicago, Minister Louis Farrakhan praised presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama as the only hope for healing the nation’s racial divisions.

Farrakhan, 74, the longtime leader of the Nation of Islam, said the war in Iraq, the nation’s faltering economy and the increased number of natural disasters were signs of “a nation in peril.” He said those problems provide the broader context for Obama’s rise.

“We are witnessing the phenomenal rise of a man of color in a country that has persecuted us because of our color,” Farrakhan told the crowd of nearly 20,000 gathered at McCormick Place.

5.  Mark Driscoll ditches the “emerging” label for Jesus.  Last Sunday he preached on the emerging church:

Within a more complicated context is a diverse range of Christian churches.

There are the fundamentalist Christians. For this group, Driscoll says everything goes into a “closed hand.” Not only does doctrine remain strict, which Driscoll agrees with, but so does the methodology which remains inflexible, rigid, outdated and “no fun.”

Then there are the liberals. They say they’re open with the methodology and the worship style and how to love people, but they’re also open about doctrine.

“We’re not sure if the Bible’s God’s word, we’re not sure if Jesus is God, we’re not sure if anybody’s going to hell,” Driscoll said, referring to liberals.

Denouncing such liberalism, the Mars Hill pastor stressed, “We’re supposed to be old Bible-believing, Jesus-loving Christians. Christianity doesn’t change. Now, the way it’s expressed culturally and demonstrated does change.”

At Mars Hill, doctrine is timeless but at the same time, methodology is timely.

“We’re theologically conservative and culturally liberal,” he often says.

6.  Strange news – a sex change inmate (in for murder) claims that the prison is violating “her” (he’s in a men’s prison) constitutional rights. How, you may ask?  By denying hair-removal treatment and access to a specialist to discuss his testosterone levels.  Heck yeah!  Why should taxpayers have to foot the bill for this?  Gimme a break!

7.  This is a disturbing first, but it is the result of diminishing a culture of life in our nation.

On a winter night in 2006, a disabled and brain damaged man named Ruben Navarro was wheeled into an operating room at a hospital here. By most accounts, Mr. Navarro, 25, was near death, and doctors hoped that he might sustain other lives by donating his kidneys and liver.

But what happened to Mr. Navarro quickly went from the potentially life-saving to what law enforcement officials say was criminal. In what transplant experts believe is the first such case in the country, prosecutors have charged the surgeon, Dr. Hootan C. Roozrokh, with prescribing excessive and improper doses of drugs, apparently in an attempt to hasten Mr. Navarro’s death to retrieve his organs sooner.

8.  Temperature monitors report widescale global cooling.

Twelve-month long drop in world temperatures wipes out a century of warming.

Over the past year, anecdotal evidence for a cooling planet has exploded. China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record levels of Antarctic sea ice, record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile — the list goes on and on.

No more than anecdotal evidence, to be sure. But now, that evidence has been supplanted by hard scientific fact. All four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA’s GISS, UAH, RSS) have released updated data. All show that over the past year, global temperatures have dropped precipitously.

Hmmm…. that’s interesting.  Somebody better check Al Gore’s temperature.

9. McCain vs. Obama – Fighin’ words on Wednesday.  Michelle Malkin & Kirsten Powers analyze and debate on Fox News.

HT: Hot Air

10.  Kevin McCullough says Christians do not have permission not to vote.  He follows up that article with a blog post.  I wholeheartedly agree.

11.  Evidently the Air Force thinks that banning access to blogs is a good idea.

The Air Force is tightening restrictions on which blogs its troops can read, cutting off access to just about any independent site with the word “blog” in its web address. It’s the latest move in a larger struggle within the military over the value — and hazards — of the sites. At least one senior Air Force official calls the squeeze so “utterly stupid, it makes me want to scream.”

Until recently, each major command of the Air Force had some control over what sites their troops could visit, the Air Force Times reports. Then the Air Force Network Operations Center, under the service’s new “Cyber Command,” took over.

HT: John Noonan 

12.  Louisiana GOP gives Republican voters the middle finger by giving most of their delegates to John McCain, even though Mike Huckabee won the Louisiana primary.  This is unbelievable.  I guess the state party wants to keep with the state’s reputation for corruption.

13.  Pistol Pete writes about piety and pettiness

Genuine piety can be a wonderful thing.  Piety can be true devotion to the holy and living God.  Piety can be self-less service to God’s people.  Piety can be feeding those who hunger for the Spirit and thirst for righteousness.

But what begins as piety can easily turn into pettiness when we begin to see things not as God sees them, but according to their outward form.

14.  David Hayward gives some tips on how churches and pastors can develop authenticity and transparency .  Great stuff.

15.  Awesome post on pride vs. brokenness

Sara takes the following points from a resource from Nancy Leigh DeMoss called Revive Our Hearts:

  • Proud people focus on the failures of others…broken people are overwhelmed with the sense of their OWN spiritual need.
  • Proud people have to prove that they are right…broken people are willing to yield the right to be right.
  • Proud people claim “rights” and have a demanding spirit…broken people yield their rights and have a meek spirit.
  • Proud people have a drive to be recognized and appreciated…broken people have a sense of their own unworthiness; thrilled that God would use them at all.
  • Proud people feel confident in how much they know…broken people are humbled by how very much they have to learn.

16.  Principled Discovery offers some great rebuttals to some objections to home educating your children.  While she is writing in the context of objecting to a bill before the Nebraska Legislature, the objections and rebuttals are universal.  A worthy read whether you home educate or are just ignorant.

17.  Interesting post on Limited Atonement, a very difficult subject when discussing Calvinism and one that I have struggled with.

18.  The NFL now says that it is ok for churches to show the Super Bowl on big screens…  Sweet!

HT: Joshua Griffin

19.  Todd Rhoades asks a very important question – would you rather have bad breath or body odor?  I’m not sure I guess I would say bad breath because at least people wouldn’t smell me when I walk into a room.  How about you?

20.  Hilarious article by Dave Barry – “A journey into my colon — and yours

HT: Tony Jones

2.  U.N.: Afghan Death sentence for journalist distributing an article with anit-Islam sentiment is “a possible misuse of the judicial process.”  This is incredible.  I thought the Taliban was gone.  A death sentence should not be imposed simply because they say something (or in this case distribute something) negative about their belief system.  Crazy.

12.  Sometimes we find ourselves so busy that we overlook people who are in need.  Sam Rainer reminds us that Jesus stopped.  He took time to meet both spiritual needs and physical needs.

13.  Dan Kimball wrote about “The Importance of Definitions

It seems that sometimes different people have different definitions of those words. Or the original definition of a term may have changed through time and one person is still are using it in the original way, while others are using it a different way. So you are having a conversation and assuming the other person believes the same thing you do about whatever term is being used, but you are actually talking about different things when asked to specifically define it.

14.  CNN’s Senior Political Analyst, Bill Schneider,  felt that Mike Huckabee won tonight’s debate.

Huckabee, I think, stood out in this debate as the one who made sense, talked as ordinary people do, and rose above politics. They may have scored. He connected. And that’s a problem for Romney, who would like to become the alternative to John McCain among conservatives who oppose the Arizona senator. But he has very tough competition from Huckabee, who’s forcing people to re-think his run at a time when he was supposed to be out of the game.

I felt like he wasn’t given nearly enough time what I was able to watch.

I thought I would pull together twenty links, videos, quotes, pictures that in my opinion are interesting (but not worth a separate post) and do a blog post every week.  I got this idea from Joe Carter who does something similar with 33 Things.

1.  Remember the GOP Debate moderated by the Des Moines Register almost a month ago?  Neither do I!  Mary Katherine Ham did a HamNation video for this non-event which will go down in infamy as the worst debate ever.

2. Iowa is going to be a battleground state for gay rights as the Iowa Supreme Court rules in favor of a gay woman adopting her partner’s children.  While on Tuesday hundreds rally at the Statehouse in support traditional marriage and demanding to be allowed to vote on the Iowa Marriage Amendment.

3. Tom Ridge, the first U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security says that waterboarding is torture, as does U.S. Intelligence Czar, Mike McConnell.

4. The first Indian-American Governor and the youngest Governor in the United States was sworn in on Monday in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Thirty-six-year-old Governor Bobby Jindal is also the first nonwhite Governor since Reconstruction in Louisiana.

5. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen believes Guantanamo (the prison) should be shut down.  This is also a position taken by presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee.

6.  Granite Slab which some see Jesus on the Cross (on the right) is to be sold on eBay.  Man you can buy anything there!  I’m waiting for the Shroud of Turin to show up.

7.  Some people shouldn’t be allowed to have a MySpace profile – the mayor of Arlington, Oregon refuses to step down after posting pictures of herself posing in lingerie on a fire engine on MySpace.  I wonder if she was up for re-election?  It would be safe to say that someone demonstrating poor judgement like this would be better off not being mayor.

8. Researchers in Great Britain were given the green light to create human-animal embryos.

9.  Young Christian voters break from traditional right according to a recent survey done by Relevant Magazine.

“In general, we’re seeing that twentysomething Christians hold strongly to conservative moral values, but at the same time don’t feel that their personal moral beliefs need to be legislated to people who don’t agree with them,” Relevant founder and publisher Cameron Strang said in a statement. “It’s an interesting paradox, and is creating clear division between this generation and the religious right.”

10.  Hopegivers International is a ministry which helps to support orphanages, schools, medical facilities and various community projects in India announced that it plans to adopt 300 children of prostitutes.  They explain this new initiative here, and you can donate here.

11.  Things that you shouldn’t put on your sign in order to attract potential employees.

Funny Pictures

12.  CNN Rants Against Evangelicals

Just when I thought CNN was starting to treat Evangelicals fairly they let Jack Cafferty out of his cage. On Thursday he went on a tear accusing Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee of wanting to “put more God-like stuff in the Constitution.” The “God-like stuff” that he was referring to was amending the constitution to ensure the right to life and to prevent the courts from redefining marriage. Cafferty went on to say that Evangelicals are the reason George Bush was in office for eight years and, therefore, they are responsible for all of America’s troubles. Cafferty then said that Huckabee is “trying to bring out those Evangelical voters, to get them to the polls” by using the God-like stuff talk. Cafferty didn’t even try to cloak his disdain for Christians, leaving me to think he would much rather be reporting on bringing out the lions or staking Christians to the poles instead.
