As Anne as the nose on Plain’s face

And here we go:

  • Travis posts a very apropos quote from T. F. Torrance:

“The church of the risen Lord has no right to be a prophet of gloom or despair, for this world has been redeemed and sanctified by Christ and he will not let it go. The corruptible clay of our poor earth has been taken up in Jesus, is consecrated through his sacrifice and resurrection, and he will not allow it to sink back into corruption. Hence the whole creation groans and travails waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God, looking forward with eager expectation to the hour of final liberation and renewal in the advent of its risen saviour.”

  • Turns out it wasn’t Satan, it was, of course the French.
  • Dan asks some good questions about whether or not we need to rethink hospitality in connection with solidarity. Sounds dangerous to me, so we probably should.
  • One of our resident Brads has been posting a series on the politics of evangelism that’s worth reading.
  • And he’s also got a good response to the Haiti issue and the inane “Christian” responses to it.
  • George Hunsinger has a response to questions about the reliability of the Gospels.
  • Peter Leithart offers some quasi-Jensonian musings on what it means to identify God with his actions in history.
  • Debra Dean Murphy reflects on the ever so violent mother earth.
  • Michael Gorman offers yet another response to Satan’s sock puppets about Haiti.
  • Also it looks like James Cameron stole his ideas for Avatar from the Russians.
  • And finally the much deserved war on Leno continues with stunning boldness:

    Thanks for the links, Halden; I actually justed posted on Haiti as well, building off Gorman’s brief post.

    As well, I suggest checking out Craig Ferguson’s pre-monologue last night (scroll down till you get to him, roman numeral 7). His response to NBC’s situation in connection to Haiti is why he continue to be the best, and most important, comedian/critic working today.
