Just About Anyone Can Get On News Programs

September 18th, 2012 Viewed 668 times, 1 so far today

It seems that this young man was able to get onto a Fox News program in order to share why he voted for Obama in 2008, but was now voting for Romney in 2012.  However, when he got on camera he was more interested in flirting with the interviewer than he was in Romney.  In fact, he states that he will be voting for Romney only because he lost a basketball game.

Man Buys Delorian and Takes It Out for Pictures

imageI don’t know if any of you have ever seen Back to the Future, but it makes popular a very rare car—the Delorian.  So one man actually purchased one, and he lives near by the place where the movie was filmed.

So here, in 2012, you have a Delorian parked outside of what was Doc Brown’s house, George McFly’s house, Loraine’s house (where George fell out of the tree) and the house where Marty came back to in Back to the Future 1- after he fixed his father’s mistake.

Pretty cool, in my book.

Because 9/11 Actually Happened!

In the above image, taken from another thread on Reddit’s Atheism board, we’re supposed to laugh at the Christian that compares 9/11 to Jesus and Christianity, because “9/11 Actually Happened.”  What’s amusing to me is that this breaks one of the fundamental arguments that Atheists use to defend their case that there is no God.

What is Considered Life?

Facebook Pro-LifeI often read article and pictures on the site reddit, which has some interesting things as well as some stuff you should avoid…  One of the things I like about the site is the ability to look at and analyze the arguments of those that do not agree with us, and see insights from the other part of the culture.

I strongly believe that Christianity is the truth, and that we have answers to all of the questions that can be brought up, but unfortunately we are often ill equipped to deal with reason and logic.

So, I’ve bookmarked some of the things there, and I’ll use this blog to help you see what I’m seeing and how to deal with these types of arguments, if you so choose to do it.

They Don’t Believe It’s Not a Big Deal

The same sex marriage proponents would have you believe that it’s not that big of a deal that same sex couples are given the permission to enter into a “marriage” relationship.

One of the arguments is “it won’t affect your marriage.”  The reasoning follows the line that each person must enter the relationship themselves, and what others choose to do has no bearing on what you have chosen to do.

And it goes further to say that traditionally married couples have done more to harm marriage with divorce, annulments, etc., than permitting same-sex couples to enter into a marriage will ever do.

Let’s unpack these arguments, shall we?

In the last post, I shared with you the sermon I gave this past Sunday for Mother’s day.  It was a moving message, the first time that I felt emotional while giving one, because I thought about how much our mothers give and think they are giving their children, but also how they often think they are doing well and find that they missed what was truly important.

I have seen far to many families have their children grow up in church and in a Christian school only to find that later on in life the children decide that their parent’s faith will not be their own.

A Woman’s Greatest Calling

The old saying goes that a woman’s work is never done. In our culture today, she is expected to take care of the home, raise a family and make money. She is supposed to have the finest things money can buy, be connected at the appropriate social outings and serve as a chauffeur to any sporting event that a child wants to attend.

She is expected to be many things, but like Martha of old who was told that Mary chose the best thing, a woman’s greatest calling is often overlooked—the place that she can make the biggest impact in the world is right in her very own home.

The Effect of a Worldview

One of the things that struck me while reading For Men Only was that it takes a very different perspective on the married life dynamic than much of what can be found on the topic elsewhere.  It’s no secret that I read a lot of Vox Day, and he subscribes to the whole evolutionary psychology dynamic of male and female relationships.  For Men Only takes a wholly different approach.
