Dr. Jane Orient: The president of the entity that makes the MCAT, Darrell Kirch of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), intends to redefine what makes a good doctor.
Collin Bredemuehl: Can bad theology create a false flag? Can bad theology create a situation where someone else deceived so that they would sin as the seeming right choice?
David Randall: All around the country you can find a New Civics movement that teaches progressive politics to students using the language of civics.
Here is one of those stories that leaves me scratching my head and thinking… well I can’t write what I initially thought. Via CampusReform.org: “‘Was Jesus a Muslim?” asks Prof. Robert F. Shedinger in the beginning of a book he published this year entitled Was Jesus a Muslim? ” I will answer with a very […]
Miscellany for your Thursday… Video of the American Principles Project founder, Robert P. George, on the Glenn Beck show. An interesting discussion on church censorship, the Manhattan Declaration, and social justice. American Thinker: Never-Ending Racial Hostility The Evangelical Outpost: The Ordinary Pointing Us Onwards Big Government: Education Blob’s Dismissal of Competition, Capitalism Will Further Its […]
Miscellany for tonight and tomorrow… Seek Social Justice, a six-part study developed by The Heritage Foundation (HT: Stand to Reason) And Danny Carroll of the Iowa Family PAC got this week what I would call a good dressing down. We need to repent of our good works. Tomorrow are you tea party activists or concerned […]
I’d say this is miscellany, but it will be health care reform heavy as a possible vote looms on Sunday in the House. The Hill: Whip Count: House Democrats’ positions on health care (beyond your own Member of Congress I would focus phone calls on the 47 undecideds) – you can find numbers here. The […]
I’m not really a fan of the National Prayer Breakfast. I see it as a ecumenical politicized love fest that is so vague about faith that it means virtually nothing at all. I’m also amazed at prayer breakfasts like this how little prayer actually happens. President Obama in his remarks this morning gave a nod […]
1. Human Events: The Engagement Riff by Herbert London When spokesmen for the Obama administration are asked to comment on various aspects of foreign policy, they invariably resort to an incantation which begins and ends with reference to engagement. “We are engaged in discussions…” are the first five words employed in every area of foreign […]
1. I think any U.S. Legislator who was for the closing of Gitmo, lost the right to say, “not in my neighborhood.” 2. Palin book deal rumor going around… FALSE – according to Greta Van Susteren (who seems to have an in with the Alaskan First Family). Her reason for getting the facts out there? […]
1. Barack Obama is now a pop culture icon. Presenting Barocky the Movie. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyhIBXNfqMA Oh yeah, I’m inspired. I’m actually enjoying watching Clinton and Obama bludgeon each other. HT: Amanda Carpenter For a must see video on Obama (with serious content) go here. HT: Eric via e-mail. 2. What a waste of tuition – Randolph […]
1. What do you think of the United Methodist Church’s policy goals for 2008? 2. Latino evangelicals question loyalty to the GOP over the immigration issue. 3. Pretty cool story – a 92-year-old legally blind golfer makes a hole-in-one. Considering how many people with perfect 20/20 vision can’t do this it is pretty amazing. 4. […]
In tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. I want to share with you an excerpt of his Letter from a Birmingham Jail (4/16/63). Perhaps it is easy for those who have never felt the stinging dart of segregation to say, “Wait.” But when you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will […]
I thought I would pull together twenty links, videos, quotes, pictures that in my opinion are interesting (but not worth a separate post) and do a blog post every week. I got this idea from Joe Carter who does something similar with 33 Things. 1. Remember the GOP Debate moderated by the Des Moines Register […]
I’m sorry that I’ve been doing so much political blogging lately (not really, but I’ve been pretty imbalanced – should slow down after Super Tuesday though). Greg Koukl of Stand to Reason answers this question, watch the video and share your thoughts.

I am at the White House Faith Based and Community Initiatives’ National Summit on Prisoner Re-Entry in Los Angeles (where it is currently 76 degrees Fahrenheit – compared to 35 in Des Moines). Yesterday during the morning plenary session, Jay Hein, the Director of the White House Office of Faith Based and Community Initiatives gave […]
