Breakfast Links for 11/14/12 – Jesus Jokes, A Country Unhinged, Destroying the Sphinx November 14, 2012

BREAKFAST LINKS 11/14/12:

Joel J. Miller, Patheos/Joel J. Miller: “There is an all-or-nonthingness to the war of the heart. The self-satisfied are too easily comforted by other means. But the desperate push on because they realize they have no other choice.”

Edward Blum & Paul Harvey, Belief Blog: What All Those Jesus Jokes Tell Us

Bill Blankschaen, Patheos/Bill In the Blank: “My politics are determined by what I believe to be true about God, just as, I hope, all of my life is.”

Tim Dalrymple, Patheos/Philosophical Fragments: “Try firing an ineffective teacher.  Roughly 1 in 50 doctors lose their medical license.  Only 1 in 2500 teachers ever lose their teaching credentials.  Process that for a moment.  It’s much easier to become a teacher than a doctor, yet teachers are fifty times less likely than doctors to be removed from the profession.”

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review: A Country Unhinged

Thomas Kidd, Patheos/The Anxious Bench: “Evangelicals can certainly participate in politics, but we should remember that politics tends simply to reflect culture. And culture is not easy to change, especially at the broadest levels.”

John Mark Reynolds, Patheos/Eidos: “Perhaps the silliest response to the election is that “if it is a loser” in the voting booth “social conservatives” should drop their opposition to rights for vice or their support to the right to life. Ethics for a responsible person are not driven by what is popular, but by reason, revelation, and reality.”
