Back from a week in Kampala. Dirty. Hot. Humid. Crowded. Only redeeming part of the trip was going to the Cineplex to see the Avengers with the gang. Field Conference was good overall, especially getting to visit with friends I don’t get to see often, but seriously, do we always have to have it in Kampala? No matter how good the hotel is, once you venture out you’re…. in Kampala. It’s like taking your vacation in East St. Louis. Not cool.

 

Good Idea. Punish Those Few People Who Still Actually BUY DVDs. ICE & FBI Hatch Ingenious Plan To Make DVD Piracy Warnings Longer

 

This is precisely why I no longer own DVDs. Once they’ve been freed from their plastic jail, you no longer have anything other than movie. At this point, it occurs to you “Why own physical media at all?” Better to just rip copies of everything you own, sell them on EBay or Craigslist while you still can, and use a jailbroken AppleTV to run XBMC and watch your movies without any fuss or bother.

What Dan Savage Doesn’t Know Could Fill Books What Dan Savage Doesn’t Know about the Bible and Slavery

 

Spouting neo-atheist talking points is not the same thing as, you know, actually reading the Bible or anything. By the by, Dan Savage is a vile, nasty, perverse, homofacist who writes a pro-sodomy column and is clearly a legend in his own mind.

It Just Doesn’t Add Up The Story Unravels: New Questions about Trayvon Martin’s Final Hour

 

If this was truly a case of a victim of wrongdoing, then my opinion on this case would be different. However, the more the truth is known, the more it becomes apparent that Trayvon was a thug whose death only has value to the Left insomuch as it can be exploited to further their communist agenda. It’s the hypocrisy of it all that irritates me the most. Where is the outrage for all the black-on-black violence that occurs all over the country? Where’s the anger over gangs of black thugs that make sport of jumping and beating white senior citizens simply because they’re white? Only when it is politically expedient, does anybody “care” about blacks in America, or anywhere else for that matter.

“…Avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called.” 1 Timothy 6:20 ‘Fakegate’: Climate Change Fanatics Wage War on Dissenters

 

Environmentalism is a religion. Evolutionism is a religion. Like other totalitarian religions of the past, they will not tolerate dissent. You have to appreciate the irony. While simultaneously condemning any religious thought as invalid and irrelevant to scientific inquiry (never mind the long, long list of Christian, Muslim, and Jewish thinkers throughout history) and thus denying them any access to academia, they form a religious cult that is infinitely more oppressive and antithetical to rational thought than the straw men of Christianity they love to demean and denigrate. True Christian faith not only liberates the soul, but the mind, and makes true science possible. “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,” Romans 1:20-23
