New blog discovery of the day

Check out Heather’s Poor Excuse. Not only does she provide as an epigraph an irreverently-translated quote from Hafiz, but she’s got plenty of thoughtful posts like her recent How Not to Read the Bible, an intelligent rant about the many misuses of scripture by both Christians and non-Christians, filled with nuggets like this: “…the arrival of Christ into the history of the Jewish people is like the plot twist in an M. Night Shyamalan movie.”
