After-Action Report: Horsey Hundred 2016

Going into the Horsey Hundred, I was aiming to do something I had never done before: complete two marathon-caliber (or higher) endurance events in consecutive weeks. On May 21, it was Toughman Indiana-Noblesville, a half-Iron (70.3) triathlon, followed by the 102-mile Horsey Hundred bike ride on May 28. My goal for the HH: take my […]

After-Action Report: Toughman Indiana 2016

It is kind of funny that a triathlon can be called “half-distance”–which is 70.3 miles, or half the Ironman distance–and still be an ultra-endurance event (i.e., a race that carries an endurance load exceeding that of a marathon). Toughman Indiana-Noblesville, a half-distance triathlon (1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike, 13.1-mile run) just north of Indianapolis, was my […]

For the Bible Scholars …

I have two questions for the Bible Scholars out here: 1. God obviously condoned polygyny in the Old Testament. Did He ever reverse that? Did God ever condemn polygyny? 2.If marriage begins at consummation: Is a ceremony necessary? What role does the church have? Are vows necessary?

Setting the Standard

Deep Strength wrote a post titled The Headship Conversation. I love everything about this whole post. “This conversation is not so much as a ‘discussion’ as it will be you telling her your vision for the relationship (in terms of Biblical standards) and finding out if she is on board. The leader of the relationship […]

God Bless Vox Day!

I know he didn’t create the SJW list, but, to his credit, his blog was an integral forum through which the idea emerged among his readership (aka “The Dread Ilk”). What is the big deal here? Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) are activists–almost always left-wing, but there are exceptions on the right–who target their opponents for […]

Zelizer Misses It on Clinton Sex Scandal

And no, I’m not talking about the Monica scandal, but rather the Gennifer Flowers scandal. This is his piece on the quickie that served as a mere speedbump for Clinton in the 1992 election season. Clinton was able to move past that scandal not because Americans had been moving leftward, but rather because (1) Bush […]

THIS is Why Theology of Marriage Matters

WARNING: YOU MAY WANT TO TAKE A NICE, HOT SHOWER AFTER READING THE LINKED ARTICLE, AS YOU WILL FEEL VERY DIRTY. Given the level of permissiveness that Western Civilization is embracing, I am not surprised that this trend is emerging among high society. It is yet another reason why the witness of The Church, and […]

Another High-Profile North Korean Defects

If this report is correct, then what we have here is a very high-value defection. In this case, the defector is someone who was well-connected in the country’s intelligence establishment. If he can name names and provide both strategic and operational knowledge, then this will be huge. When North Korean fighter pilot No Kum-sok (Kenneth […]

NYT Story on Triathlon Cheater Julie Miller

In all sports, you’re going to have some people who violate the integrity of the sport. From spitballs to steroids to blood doping, cheating is nothing new. In endurance sports, doping is not uncommon among elite athletes, although technology appears to be catching up. Athletes who pass drug tests today, may fail them years later, […]
