I have heard some say they would not be caught dead even visiting where I have both chosen, and been blessed, to live for over 30 years. There's no accounting for taste ... but I do pity them: how I long for them to see the power of God in Jesus Christ to bring life where death once reigned.


    Missing Figures in the Perry Faith Two-Step: A Plea to Fellow Evangelicals

    While the music started long before the hat was dropped in Charleston, the dance around the implications of Gov. Perry’s Christian faith is just entering full swing, and couples now flying around the floor can be expected to prance only more frantically until the last bar is played next November. Leon’s More Drooling Idiocy on Rick Perry’s Faith draws attention to the self-conflicted steps of | Read More »

    In Which My Username is Finally Relinquished

    All flesh is grass,    and all its beauty is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades    when the breath of the LORD blows on it;    surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades,    but the word of our God will stand forever. Isaiah 40:6-8 (ESV) When I was in grade school, my mother fixed up the couch for | Read More »

    For the Dual Citizens Among Us, Carol Excerpts on the Incomprehensibility of the Incarnation

    Recent references to Christmas on the site have emphasized its benefits in realms ranging from cultural to redemptive; its helpfulness in improving the state of that precious location, the interior life*, has been variously extolled. The enduring Christmas carols, taken as a whole, emphasize many aspects of Jesus’ advent and birth–prophecy revealed and fulfilled, the local manifestations of drama which occurred when the eternal covenant | Read More »


    For the Dual Citizens Among Us, on Political Ramifications of the Prevailing Pelagianism

    Caveat Lector: Notwithstanding our allegiance to this most anti-monarchial of Republics, some of us have found ourselves simultaneously subjects of a different kingdom, meaning neither Animalia nor our particular ancestral “old country”, but rather that new city under its most absolute of monarchs. The following is addressed to those who recognize and love that new city, who know themselves to be its current and future | Read More »

    For the Dual Citizens Among Us, One Election-Day Nearer the Eschaton

    From Isaiah, no stranger to political reversal: Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket, and are accounted as the dust on the scales; behold, he takes up the coastlands like fine dust. : All the nations are as nothing before him, they are accounted by him as less than nothing and emptiness. : It is he who sits above the circle of | Read More »

    Brownian Motion Within the Tsunami

    While we are hopefully about to witness the landfall of a tectonically-scaled political realignment, even movement on a more humble scale can and should be appreciated for its part in the overall potency of effect, i.e. DOOM. Such a movement occurred yesterday when NY State Sen. Ruben Diaz (D) endorsed NY-15 (R-Cand.) Michel Faulkner in his bid to send Charlie Rangel out to pasture, imploring | Read More »

    A Rationale for Not Signing the Manhattan Declaration

    Despite the risk of offending most of the management and readership of this site–upon whose joint efforts much of my political education gratefully rests–I hope it may prove profitable to lay out a case for difficulties in the Manhattan Declaration which constrain me from signing it in good conscience. By doing so I intend no disparagement of any here who have declared their intent to | Read More »

    Quarantined! If You Value Your Lives, Don’t Come To OurMy Town

    Tangled Webs and all that

    Thank you, Macon Phillips, for so adroitly wielding your journalistic skill in your recent missive intended to remove all things scary and/or fishy: … Linda Douglass … addresses one example that makes it look like the President intends to “eliminate” private coverage, when the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. I guess you didn’t really need all those sentence-diagramming drills after all, did you? | Read More »

    On Why We Need Sarah Now More Than Ever

    Sarah Palin’s elevation to the national stage nearly a year ago brought much excitement and hope to many of us who had long been frustrated with the inability of the Republian party to launch a leader capable of articulating the hopes and aspirations of We, The People. Now that she has left that stage, we are leaderless, we are rudderless, we are without hope in | Read More »
