Christian Carnival

Wednesday, June 30th, 2004

The 24th Christian Carnival is in full swing!

Knit together

Tuesday, June 29th, 2004

La Shawn Barber has choice words (doesn’t she always?) about the implications of the new 3D and 4D ultrasound technology. I traced the hat tips from La Shawn Barber to Evangelical Outpost to Ex Nihilo, all of whom are worth reading. Go read them!
Then go see the Watch Me Grow […]

“…it would be wrong for someone…to tell women of the study because the issue is too complex.”

Monday, June 28th, 2004

The weather is crappy and I’ve got my duct tape out.
This analogy will fall short for one important reason, but imagine with me…there is a new treatment for a non-fatal health situation millions of women face each year, and there are also severe side effects that could cause problems later in life that far exceed […]

Adult stem cells v. Embryonic stem cells

Sunday, June 27th, 2004

Adult stem cells have already helped the lame to walk and the blind to see. I didn’t know this — did you know this? Embryonic stem cells have apparently only given mice tumors. If adult stem cells have proven to be useful and effective and that is where most of the private […]

hazy days

Friday, June 25th, 2004

Haze created by forest fires in northeast Alaska and British Columbia are responsible for this stunning sunset. My ancient Mavica didn’t quite do it justice.

A little freaky, a little funny

Thursday, June 24th, 2004

Jesus Christ is only the Prince of Peace. The King of Peace, in case you were wondering, has been named: “Rev.” Sun Myung Moon.
Interestingly enough, the coronation ceremony was held March 23 in the Dirksen Senate Office Building — crown and all. It seems like the senators involved were “duped,” not having […]

The Quotable Pat

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2004

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation
was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on
the Gospel of Jesus Christ”
–Patrick Henry

eye-crossingly dull

Sunday, June 20th, 2004

I haven’t read Clinton’s My Life, and don’t intend on investing my precious time in 950 pages of self-promotion. However, I do want to note just one phrase from one review: eye-crossingly dull.
No matter how amused I am by a negative review, I was far more entertained by that phrase. I […]

It depends…

Thursday, June 17th, 2004

Thursday, the Kentucky Supreme Court ruled that a viable fetus is a person when he or she is the victim of a violent crime. Kentucky’s unborn victims of violence act protects a child at all stages of development in the womb. While it is a good thing to have that law and it […]

playing catchup

Thursday, June 17th, 2004

I’ve been too busy and distracted this week to blog. These stuck out as I was playing catchup, but chances are, if you’ve made it here (and I’m assuming you have), you’ve already read these.
Andrew C. McCarthy puts the smack down on the 9/11 Commission.

Christian Carnival
I’m excited to see (via La Shawn Barber […]

When the cat is away…

Friday, June 11th, 2004

…the mice get out their signs and protest.
I looked a little closer at the picture and recognized the organization name at the bottom of the sign - A.N.S.W.E.R. Just like the mice who play when the cat is away, it makes complete sense that an organization sympathetic to communist ideals, if not outright lobbying […]

The Quotable Ronnie

Friday, June 11th, 2004

“Our mission stretches far beyond our boarders, God’s family knows no boarders. In your life, you face daily trials, but millions of believers in other lands face far worse–they are mocked and persecuted for the crime of loving God. To every religious dissident trapped in that cold cruel existence, we send our love and support. […]

Gotta remember these brothers and sisters in prayer

Thursday, June 10th, 2004

Assyrian Christians in Iraq are dreading the June 30 hand over and implementation of Islamic state religion.
Oy.

America putting the “fun” back in funeral

Wednesday, June 9th, 2004

When Nancy got out of her limo to observe the coffin being placed onto the caisson, people applauded. Because of her reception and acknowledgement of the applause, it seemed to be odd, but not completely inappropriate. Throughout the procession route, however, there were spurts of applause. Applauding during a funeral procession? Was it […]

2004 Democratic National Convention Official Program:

Monday, June 7th, 2004

I’m not usually as amused by email forwards as I was by this one:
2004 Democratic National Convention Official Program:
6:00pm Opening flag burning ceremony.
6:00pm Opening secular […]

Independent Journalism

Saturday, June 5th, 2004

Bloggers are being issued press credentials for the Democratic National Convention. It’s nice that blog power is being recognized and utilized. I hope this trend continues for the Republican Convention.
It’s nice to see truly independent journalism be given an opportunity!

Buh-bye

Saturday, June 5th, 2004

This afternoon, former President Ronald Reagan slipped the surley bonds of earth. It’s sad, but at this point, probably a bit of a relief for those who love him to not see him suffer anymore.

Getting in the way of murder is unconstitutional?

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2004

I am in need of duct tape. Just enough to keep my head from exploding. I am thinking that other people’s stupidity is what causes those mysterious cases of spontaneous human explosion that are so readily dismissed as urban legend.
The first of three cases challenging the partial birth abortion ban has been decided. […]

The coolest wedding I’ve ever been to

Tuesday, June 1st, 2004

The wedding party, including the bride in her wedding dress, hiked up the mountain. It wasn’t the highest peak, but one with breathtaking views of the surrounding area. There they took their vows. After their vows, friends and family surrounded them in prayer. It was beautiful. During the ceremony, a […]

A broad abroad

Tuesday, June 1st, 2004

After much prayer and seeking of wise counsel, I have decided to wait until next year to go abroad. I am so relieved that this decision has been made. I feel like I can now pay attention to the rest of my life. Whew!
