Breakfast Links for 11/08/12 – Things Recently Neglected; the Shadow of Tyrants; Dandelion Dust

BREAKFAST LINKS 11/0812:

Joe Carter, Patheos/Joe Carter’s Commonplace: “Now that we got The Most Important Election in Our Lifetime out of the way, let’s move on to truly important matters. Let’s spend some time focusing on culture and our families and our local communities. Let’s spend time on the areas of life we’ve been neglecting during the election season.”

Richard Stearns, Huffington Post Religion: Goodbye, Christian American – Hello, True Christianity

Tim Dalrymple, Patheos/Philosophical Fragments: “ I hope that I’m wrong, but I think a little less of the wisdom of the American people today.  I fear that wisdom is growing distorted by a rising entitlement mentality, by the deterioration of classic American virtues such as independence, industry and integrity, and by an increasing ignorance or even rejection of the fundamental vision that inspired this nation in the first place and nurtured it over the centuries.”

Thomas L. Friedman, NYTimes Opinion Pages: Hope and Change, Part 2

Bill Blankenschaen, Patheos/Bill in the Blank: “One thing is sure. America has indeed been fundamentally transformed. This election will prove to be the end of America as we know it. The sooner we get our minds around what that means, the better.”

Lisa Hendy, Patheos/A Good Measure: “So what is my job today? To be the change I desire.”

Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel, DailyCaller.com: What Happened

Thomas L. McDonald, Patheos/God and the Machine: “There’s simply relief that this is all over at last, and that we can get back to living and worshiping as we shiver in the shadow of tyrants. Our faith was forged in the shadow of tyrants: a shadow that fell upon the ground in the shape of a cross.”

Alex Murashko, Christian Post Entertainment: Russell Crowe’s Noah

Ben Witherington, Patheos/The Bible and Culture: “For sure this is not the Sunday School Jesus I learned about when I was growing up. It is also not the Mr. Rogers Jesus where ‘never was heard a discouraging word, and the skies are not cloudy all day’.”

Alexis Simendinger, Real Clear Politics: For Obama, Path Forward is Unclear – and Bumpy

Karen Spears Zacharias, Patheos/Karen Spears Zacharias: “Presidential terms are the stuff of dandelion dust.”

About Timothy Dalrymple

Timothy Dalrymple was raised in non-denominational evangelical congregations in California. The son and grandson of ministers, as a young boy he spent far too many hours each night staring at the ceiling and pondering the afterlife.
 
In all his work he seeks a better understanding of why people do, and do not, come to faith, and researches and teaches in religion and science, faith and reason, theology and philosophy, the origins of atheism, Christology, and the religious transformations of suffering
