When did God make America?

It’s over a week out of date now, but I ran into this trail of 4th of July tweets and found them amusing. I don’t know how many of these tweeters were Leno-man-on-the-street level idiots, but it turns out this … Continue reading

And Now For Something Entirely Different and Unrelated

Today’s Wondermark! made me think of 2K, so I thought I’d share. Don’t forget to hover the mouse over the comic for the extra punchline in the mouseover text… Obviously, that’s not a Christian Realtor’s Office, or they’d have a … Continue reading

Friday Fun a Little Early (Boogity-Boogity-Boogity)

There is a respectable and distinguished tradition in my family, established circa 1981, of attending without fail the Indianapolis 500. For those not aware, the race falls on a Sunday, and my sabbatarianism which developed a little later in life … Continue reading

Who (just now) Said That?

It is important to note that REVAHVUHLS! “…certainly do not arrive from cosmetic manipulations…” Now that that is ceremoniously out of the way, The Gospel Coalition nevertheless points one lacking a sense of urgency to a place where he can … Continue reading

A Bit of Campy Humor

Pun absolutely intended. This Rapture FAQ, written by a professor for his students, has been floating through the intertubes, but I believe the original is here. Q: With the rapture coming, should I bother working on my final paper? A: … Continue reading

Staying Ahead of the Curve in Little Geneva

David Strain at Letters from Mississippi makes some interesting observations about what Reformed Baptists and Federal Visionaries have in common. My question has always been, to the extent that Federal Visionaries are also typically paedocommunionists, and to the extent that … Continue reading

How about a little Friday fun with a game of “Would you Rather?” For each question you have to pick one, there is no third option. Would you rather: 1. a) Join the local PCUSA Congregation Or b) Join the … Continue reading

Redeeming Money

Wondermark is a webcomic I follow, and today’s episode (the latest in a short series) is worthy of tacking onto the moon-ventilated door of the Outhouse (Click it to view full size): For more on morally redeeming the things of … Continue reading

Blessed Idolatry

Reformed Forum

The biggest possible tip-o-the-hat goes to Paul, who introduced me to the treasure trove of reformed audio that is, which seems to be somewhat analogous to MR/WHI, except for being more Westminster East-student/alumni-driven, rather than WSCAL-faculty-driven, and all on … Continue reading
