So who is this Gary Cass guy?

Wanna-be genocidaire Gary Cass.

Gary Cass is the pro-violence, pro-death guy who wants to kill a billion human beings. The rest is just trivia and details. I mean, once you announce that you’re advocating violence and the death of 2.6 million American citizens, the rest of your résumé becomes pretty irrelevant. [Read more...]

Charisma is trying to get missionaries killed

Crosshairs

Gary Cass is deliberately inciting violence against innocents — Muslim children and families, Sikhs and other frequent victims of “mistaken identity” in anti-Muslim vigilanteism, Christian missionaries in the Muslim world. Charisma is participating in and enabling that incitement of violence. [Read more...]

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbour and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” [Read more...]

Charismanews.com goes full-on Hutu radio

3books

Cass and Charisma are not merely “Islamophobic” — this is the language of genocide. This is Hutu radio stuff. Cass is trying to incite violence and Charisma magazine is eagerly amplifying his voice. We’ve heard this before. This is what evil sounds like. [Read more...]

Are you ready (to buy a T-shirt)?

FlyAway

See, here’s the plan: you put on your spiffy new Left Behind T-shirt and matching baseball cap with the lofted embroidery and everyone will see that question, “Are You Ready?” and be intrigued. They’ll come up to you — friends, relatives, neighbors, strangers on the bus, all the popular kids at your school — and they’ll ask you, “Ready for what?” And then you can share the gospel with them.

The broken promise of biblical ‘inerrancy’

Certainty

This same pattern is repeated wherever any group of “inerrantists” gets together and claims that their inerrant, infallible Bible will be their supreme and final authority. It doesn’t work. The arbiter fails to arbitrate and the definitive authority fails to settle all their questions. So they add to it. … [Read more...]

If there’s anywhere to be then you must be there

Social justice warriors participating in a pageant of empathy.

Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend. Some stuff, including: Evangelicals still fighting over gender roles; a historic apology from The Economist; Doctor Who and teshuvah; and if you’re against social justice and empathy, then what exactly are you for? [Read more...]

Harriet20

It’s a rare Thursday night off, so instead of shelving hardware, let me pack out some links, including: Saint Joseph the wimp, pre-emptively arresting black voters, renegade clerics (in more than one sense), and the staggering ignorance of Internet mythicists. [Read more...]

Evangelicals becoming better neighbors (ratchet, ratchet …)

Jiminy

Culture-war Christians are convinced that staying true to their beliefs requires them to “be a jerk about it,” lest they begin to waver in their commitment. And they are convinced that staying true to their beliefs requires them “to make our secular government impose” those beliefs on everyone else. As long as they are convinced of those two things, they can never be good neighbors. [Read more...]

Ratcheting justice

Ratchet_example

It’s certainly possible to make the journey toward justice in the other direction, but it seems rare. There seems to be a kind of ratchet effect. That’s how the Apostle Paul described it, too. “It is hard for thee to kick against the pricks,” Paul says Jesus told him on the road to Damascus. Conversion isn’t geared for injustice.
