Something completely different. The kids and I did KFC the other night. This link will take you to a fast food calorie counter. It’s very interesting, in a depressing sort of way.

This little story from Human Events is just plain fun. They ask Senators this question:

Given the 9th Circuit Court�s recent decision on the Pledge of Allegiance, would you vote to confirm an atheist to the Supreme Court?

The answers are priceless. My favorite is Zell Miller:

Given the 9th Circuit Court�s recent decision on the Pledge of Allegiance, would you vote to confirm an atheist to the Supreme Court?

Sen. Zell Miller (D.-Ga.): Nope.

Zell is a whole lot better Republican than most of the Republicans in the Senate.

Well, Osama may be alive after all, at least according to this story out of Germany. It wouldn’t surprise me, but it still makes me wonder where that mythical Fourth of July Video went to. Must have gotten lost in the mail or something….

I’m an Episcopalian. I grew up Southern Baptist, and still love that Faith Tradition. But I also very much love the Liturgy, and find the Prayer Book a wonderful comfort. That’s part of why this story by Dr. Mullen (Dr Mullen is the rector of St. Michael’s, Cornhill, in the City of London and chaplain to the London Stock Exchange) so deeply disturbing. The current Archbishop of Canterbury is an evangelical, and relatively conservative. It’s apparent this new nominee will further divide the Anglican Communion.

For those who aren’t privy to this family fight, a little explanation.

The Episcopal Church is primarily a very Liberal denomination. Many bishops and rectors jettisoned The Faith long ago, and embraced a fuzzy form of Christianity that leaves Christ out.

The denomination’s most famous representative is John Shelby Spong. The link will take you to a critique of his theology from Probe. He is, in this writer’s opinion, a heretic. .

There is in the Episcopal Church a guerilla war. Conservative Evangelicals are working hard to bring about change. We have looked to the Archbishop of Canterbury for some inspiration, or at least knowledge that attack will not come from that quarter. That may change, if Dr. Mullen is correct. I fear he is.

John Podheretz has it just about right. His analysis of the two political parties makes a lot of sense.Let’s hope he isn’t right about the conclusion of what he calls “the melodrama.”

Take a look at this. I wish this mother had spoken out sooner, like before the father used his daughter to push his own atheist agenda to remove God from the Pledge. Ties in well wtith the story below it on the ACLU agenda.
