Bravo to Wick Allison! …for his challenge to Bp. Charles Grahmann, the lousy bishop of Dallas who is beginning to pull into the lead for the coveted Worst Still-Serving American Bishop award. You can’t jerk your flock around forever, Bishop. In Persian, they say, “Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin”. In Dallas, it’s “Don’t Mess with Texas.” [Read more...]

A Problem That May Be Coming Down the Pike Someday for Christians is the insistence by some conservative Jews that the Temple be rebuilt after the razing of the Dome of the Rock.

Glob of chemicals named “Andy” struggles to show that its epiphenomena are “true” while Christian globs of chemicals have epiphenomena that are “false” and even “ridiculous”.

Heard the SOTU Like always, came away liking W and trusting in his basic goodness and intelligence. (Yes, intelligence.
