One of these days I ought to write about the occultism that was going on in the typesetting room of the old Bayshore Independent. I do not mean that as a figure of speech.
For the time being–at least until I get back from the laundromat–there’s this.
I am not responsible for the headline supplied by Newswithviews.
How bad is education in America? It’s getting to some point beyond my verbal resources.
Erlene thought we might like this one: Till the Storm Passes By, by the Gaither Vocal Band. I can’t say whether the big storm has started yet, but there sure have been, and are, a lot of smaller ones.
Susan asked for this one: In Need, sung by the Praise and Harmony Singers. Isn’t it wonderful, what human voices can do as musical instruments? Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
In case you missed it when Linda sent it in this morning, here’s the girl whose pet rooster loves her so much, he races up the trail to meet her when she comes off the school bus. Look at him go!
Go ahead–tell us it’s just evolution at work, through chance.
Really, it’s a shame to wake them up, after they’ve gone to the trouble to fall asleep in all these crazy places and positions–including some that are definitely not recommended. They’ll be falling asleep on ski lifts next.
I wonder if this science is settled.
A professor in the Marine Sciences faculty at Istanbul University recently appeared on Turkish public television and asserted, in a lecture, that Noah and his family “must have had mobile phones” on the Ark–which, by the way, he said was made of steel, not gopher wood, and nuclear-powered (http://www.wnd.com/2018/01/noah-had-a-cell-phone-during-bible-flood-prof-claims/). Just in case you were wondering if only Western scientists are daft.
The prof surmised that the technology of the antediluvian world was quite advanced.
Well, okay, we can reasonably speculate that “civilization” is much older than we thought and it might have been more advanced than we ever thought, too. It has been discovered, for instance, that writing was probably invented one or two thousand years earlier than we believed. But cell phones? Cell phones that still worked during the greatest disaster ever experienced by the human race? I wonder what Noah’s family watched on TV while waiting for the waters of the Flood to subside.
But this is how it starts, when “science” gets all woozy.
And once it gets in bed with politics, as it is in our neck of the woods–watch out.
I took down our Christmas tree this morning and put all the ornaments away. Then vacuumed. It’s a big job, and I’m pooped. But then it’s an even bigger job to set it up. Why do we do it?
First we put on the lights. We use lights from the store Grandpa had in the 1930s, and they all still work. Then there’s a ton of ornaments to put on. Each and every one of our ornaments has a story: they’re a kind of history of our family. They bring vividly to mind the people we’ve loved, and good times shared with them. You might wonder what a Christmas tree has to do with the birth of Jesus Christ Our Savior. But God ordained the family, God loves the family, and it’s one of those things that His Son came to earth to save.
I put the tree out on the curb with a prayer that this past Christmas will continue to work throughout the year, powerfully drawing our hearts to Jesus Christ Our Lord: Amen.
If you despise your children and enjoy wasting money, send them to Ohio State and encourage them to take a new “course” that seeks to batter down “white heterosexual masculinity,” presuming they can still find any on the campus (https://www.thecollegefix.com/post/40991/).
If “white heterosexual masculinity” is bad, then what do you suppose they would hold up to us as good?
No, they’re not answering any questions about it. Just sign the tuition checks and shut up.
The required textbook in the course is Dude, You’re a Fag! All the readings seem to be centered on persuading normal men to become sodomites. The whole shebang is called “a study in feminist masculinity.” I wonder what kind of twaddle you’d get if you held an essay contest on “What is feminist masculinity?”
The course will be taught by a “doctoral candidate” in the Dept. of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. This loser has also written a children’s book encouraging children to be homosexuals.
Hint: If a college has a Dept. of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, that college has too much money, way too many employees, and too many “students” who should be working jobs instead of sitting in classrooms “studying” toxic garbage
There isn’t all that much “Christian fantasy” out there, so each badly-written book hurts the market that much more.
BTW, this wasn’t the first time I suggested turning Jesus’ parable of the Prodigal Son into a novel. Come to think of it, you could do that with any number of His parables. Only Jesus Our Lord, though, could pack so much meaning into so little space.
