Do You Feel Guilty About Blessings?

In our absurdly wealthy, soothingly safe country, I’ve found that there are a lot of Christians who aren’t quite comfortable with their blessings. Because not only are we prosperous with possessions, we are also prosperous with media, making us all keenly aware that most of the world is rather a bit more rustic than America. And by “rustic” I mean, More …

The Place of Christians in Sports

Justin Taylor offers a couple of perspectives of the proper role for Christians in competitive sports. Interesting, although it’s to the disadvantage of the the “con” position that it’s offered by noted presidential pants-admirer David Brooks.

Atheists: They’re Not Exactly Masters of Salesmanship

Atheists in America continue to be incredibly, amazingly not good at public relations: An atheist group is putting up signs that say God is “a myth” — and they’re making sure that Jews and Muslims will see them. … American Atheists says on their website that the signs aren’t intended to offend, but are meant as outreach to atheists in More …

The End of the World, and Coping with My Deprangry

Not long ago, I mentioned that the news was making me depressed and angry so often that I thought I had invented a new emotion: “deprangry.” It’s a difficult situation for me, because I’m basically an optimistic person, accustomed to looking at the world with healthy good humor.

Christians in Politics

I agree with Rick Santorum that the idea that Christians shouldn’t participate in politics is a throw-upable sentiment.

And they aren’t paying attention to Jesus himself. During the Last More …
