11/29/2007: This qualified as my first article in the WTF category. 55-year-old Howard Douglas Porter, former pastor of Hickman Community Church, apparently killed 85-year-old Frank Craig for his 4+million dollar trust fund.
11/29/2006: Every American ought to read this latest column by Walter Williams. The following statement says it all (emphasis mine): The supreme tragedy that will lead to our undoing is that so far as personal economic self-interests are concerned, it is perfectly rational for every American to seek to live at the expense of another […]
11/29/2006: I need to create a category named WTF for cases like this. Are we really that far off from the pagans of old who sacrificed children, burning them alive for Molech?
11/28/2006: In today’s Wall Street Journal, Mei Fong and Nicholas Zamiska report on the efforts of Rutgers University professor Wise Young to conduct clinical trials in China over the use of cells from aborted babies in the treatment of spinal cord injuries. This is further empirical demonstration of the culture of death that we will […]
11/27/2006: Here is the list of candidates for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Here are my picks: (1) Bert Blyleven. He won plenty of games, and came up big when it counted: the 1979 World Series (with the Pittsburgh Pirates) and the 1987 World Series (for the Minnesota Twins). Surely a place that […]
11/28/2006: One of my very first posts on this blog was a mini-review of the Gary Haugen book Terrify No More, which describes the work of the International Justice Mission in busting a child prostitution ring in Cambodia. In it, Haugen brings a very disturbing point home: slavery–including sex slavery–is still alive and well in […]
11/27/2006: Aside from his ability to screw things up in the clutch–demonstrated in Indianapolis–Mike Vanderjagt has been a bust for the Dallas Cowboys. Given that they need someone who can deliver with the game on the line, The Tuna released Vanderjagt today, and apparently has signed Martin “Automatica” Gramatica.
11/27/2006: In this increasingly heated struggle between the New Atheists (militant atheists and secularists) and religious conservatives (predominately conservative Catholics and Protestant Evangelicals), the New Atheists often advance one of two arguments: Religion is the root of all strife and conflict. If we would just eradicate religion, we would have an unprecedented era of peace […]
11/26/2006: This week, Southern Seminary President Al Mohler weighed in on “the new atheism”. Atheists in academia–or the formulation of public policy–are nothing new. Quite frankly, they have dominated the academy–and many key government agencies–for decades. The Humanist Manifesto goes back 73 years and its signers included education pioneer John Dewey. Philip Johnson–author of Darwin […]
11/26/2006: In Louisville, Kentucky, a few years ago, Louisville police shot an “unarmed” man in his car. (This happened not far from the church at which I was a member at the time.) Because the man happened to be black, the reaction was quite predictable: civil rights groups cried foul, while others in the community […]
