Should Dutch Christians Call God Allah?  News from Religion in a Post-Christian World

If you have not heard about this little event in the Dutch town of Breda, read about it here:

Now the easiest answer to this is simply to call this man a fool, a tool of pluralism, and dismiss what he is doing.  Trust me, that is very tempting.  But there are deeper theological, linguistic, cultural, and apologetic issues at play, ones that I doubt our dear Bishop Muskens has not really thought about.

A Shout Out to Jonah Goldberg and The Corner At NationalReview.com

I posted yesterday about Pat Schroeder and her inance comments on conservatives and reading books. I sent the link to Jonah Goldberg, probably the best of the writers at The Corner, their all-topic blog, and he posted a nice link back here.  Too cool.  If you are reading this off that link, welcome.  Jonah is the best, not least of which because I told his boss Kathryn Jean Lopez that he looked like Jack Black in School of Rock 2 in one of the pics they had up there.

Why non serving people are not necessarily Chicken Hawks

A few weeks back Mitt Romney got asked a question about why his five sons are not serving in the military.  At the time his answer, at least as proclaimed by the media, was not particularly positive.  Though his central point - that our military is all volunteer, and that his sons are responsible for their own choices. 

But what about others, like me, who could have volunteered for the military after 9-11, support the war in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and did not.  Does that makes us chickenhawks?

Pat Schroeder and the Reading Debate

Hmm, so the former representative from Denver (CO-01), is now the President of the American Association of Publishers, and based on a new report, states that Liberals read more books and write more books because conservatives only have “no new taxes” to say.
