Unless Mr. Obama didn’t believe much of what his pastor taught for thirty years, Driscoll isn’t out of line. No, he may be correct, but even if he is, he’s still out of line. Just because something may be true, doesn’t make it right to say it publicly. In this case, Mark is speculating on [...]
Here’s a tweet from your favorite super-pastor: “Praying for our president, who today will place his hand on a Bible he does not believe to take an oath to a God he likely does not know.” Awesome. What’s the motivation for tweeting something like this? I understand his logic: Praying for our president, who today [...]

Had a lively discussion with friends on NYE about the hobbit. It was roundly agreed that the lengthy, cartoonish battle scenes distracted from the story. For me, the key to the entire narrative of the Hobbit is how Bilbo, a regular Joe, can overcome peril after peril with just his wits and a little divine [...]
Kurt, Those Lambics are perfect for Beer-mosas the next morning. My wife lives them.
Did I miss this discussion or have we taken it apart yet? Peter Jackson tried to make a LOTR prequel and told a different story than the Hobbit.
