Morning Report, August 24

One Christian’s perspective on today’s news: 1.  Robert Wright, author of The Evolution of God, penned an Op-Ed in the New York Times today, “A Grand Bargain Over Evolution.”  Worth reading.  The argument, essentially, is that believers should accept that natural evolutionary means are quite capable of explaining the development of such things as moral [Read More...]

Morning Report, August 20: Public Splition, Reverend Obama, Rabbi Obama, WWJD, In Government We Trust, LaRouchitler, Abortion Mandate, Ted Kennedy, Hold the Mayo (Clinic), and Avatar
