David Brooks Wants Us to Fight a Different Culture War; Retraining Required

Brooks is a good writer and makes a good case for what I consider to be the right position.In essence, he says evangelicals have lost the culture war over sexual matters, and so should consider being more like the Salvation Army than the Moral Majority.

Glenn Beck Tells Ed Young’s Fellowship Church: We Are a Christian Nation

LDS Gospel doctrine teacher Glenn Beck told Southern Baptist Fellowship Church on July 5: "We are a Christian nation, period."Watch:As I have pointed out, Beck's church believes the founding fathers were baptized into his LDS church by coming in spirit form to a former LDS president and asking for redemption.

Gospel for Asia, and the $9 Million Interest Play

In note H of GFA's 2013 audited financial statement,  GFA describes a $9 million transfer to India to take advantage of what is described as "favorable interest rates" (see the last paragraph in the image below).The Indian FC-6 forms requires NGOs to report the amount of foreign contributions received and the amount of interest made on those contributions. It appears that GFA in India made about 6% on contributions in 2011-2012.  According to the Bank of India, the benchmark interest r … [Read more...]

Franklin Graham Takes Money Out of One Gay Friendly Bank, Then Puts It In Another Gay Friendly Bank

Update: Graham has responded to criticism via an editorial in USA Today.Don't you hate it when you boycott (personcott?) your bank because it is too gay friendly and then you switch banks and then find out that the new bank is also gay friendly?Read all about it at WaPo in an article by Sarah Pulliam Bailey.When I first converted, I was told by my youth pastor that one shouldn't go to movies because doing so would support Hollywood.
