The Word "Bitter"

Debra Baker posted and article on her blog called:

Bitter and Male Privilege

It is a very good analysis of how certain words are used to try to kick the legs out from under legitimate gripes.

Quote of the Day

This comes from The Wartburg Watch from an article that was actually posted yesterday.

"Deb and I believe, with our whole hearts, that the battle facing the Christian faith today is not the American deficit, not creationism, not making sure women stay silent in the church but recognizing a specific, serious sin in our midst. This sin is the abuse of children and women in the church, and, in particular, child sexual abuse."  --Dee

What Do the SGM Lawsuit and Martin Luther King Jr. Have in Common?

Driscoll Is Getting Desperate, part 2

He's bribing people with IPAD MINIs.

He's so deperate to get good reviews to overshadow the bad review that I linked a few posts ago that he's bribing people. For some reason that limbo chant is going through my brain. "How low can you go? How low can you go?"

WTH Discusses Driscoll Bribe

(for my first post on Driscoll being desperate back in November, check out this link)

C. S. Lewis and Creation

Now for something completely different.

Please excuse me while I scratch this Apologetics itch.
It has nothing to do with Driscoll, Wilson, SGM, misogyny, CBMW, or any other of my usual topics.
I'm really only posting it here for myself and for being able to find it again quickly when I have more time to read it all the way through.

I like C. S. Lewis. I'm gaining an appreciation for Apologetics. And I have a sizable concern over the terribly dogmatic nature that many Christians have on viewing Creation.

C.S. Lewis and the Myth of Creation (part 1)

And since I've gone way off already, I'll go ahead and link another article that I haven't read yet and cannot vouch for but that I would like to look at when I get more time.

Looking at the Collapsing Universe in the Bible

If I decide one or the other of these links are terrible and shouldn't be shared, I'll delete them later.
