Several recent conversations have turned my mind to the January of my first year of college. It was then that I learned about Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I have vague memories of learning about Harvey Milk around the same time, and of getting that all confused with “MLKJ” Day. Yes, I know—most kids learn about Martin Luther King Jr. Day in kindergarten. But I didn’t. I was homeschooled. Click through to read more! Read more

Forbid Them Not, pp. 447-449 And we’re finally here! The last installment of this wild, wild ride! Deanna called it an early Thanksgiving dinner. She and her children were free, at least for now, from any legal attack. She wanted to celebrate with about forty of her closest friends. Oh, Deanna.  Do I even have forty close friends? Don’t get me wrong, I have lots of friends—I’m just not sure that there are forty that I would call “close.” But Deanna… Read more

I started this article last week and have been toying with it since. My interest was piqued by the headline of a recent Answers in Genesis article by John C. P. Smith: the piece was titled “Blind Faith.” I was curious because I’ve long noticed a tension within the young earth creationist ministry between faith and science. On the one hand, young earth creationists argue that Christians must have “faith” that the biblical account actually happened, because the Bible says it did; on the other hand, they spend an awful lot of time using science to “prove” that the biblical account happened.  Click through to read more! Read more

The only dire consequence Lori offered in her article was growing old alone with cats. If that’s the most awful thing she can think of—being old and not having kids—doesn’t that make her the selfish one? She’s doing what she believes will maximize her her own pleasure and happiness, right? Heck, that make her almost hedonistic. So much for being sacrificial!  Click through to read more Read more

I had yelled first. That’s right—early on in the dispute I yelled for her to get up here right now. (It bewilders me, now, that I can’t remember what it was that I was upset about. Something she was supposed to do that she hadn’t done, but I can’t remember what.) I yelled first. How was I supposed to get on my daughter’s case for yelling at me when I started it? I, the adult?

The fault lines have been evident for some time—think of the problems over censorship, hate groups, and toxic social formations that have plagued Facebook—and they’re not going away. The truth is that, much like in the pre-WWI period, we’ve let technology get an edge over the humanities.  Click through to read more! Read more

The problem is that there are three court hearings, and in each case Farris chooses to cover them in full, outlining their entire oral arguments. But neither side changes what they are arguing. The result is that there is complete repetition of the exact same legal arguments each time. That makes for boring reading. But don’t worry! I’ll only include the few actually interesting bits in my post! Click through to read more! Read more
