One Million Protest to keep Turkey Secular

Sunday, April 29th, 2007

As many as one million people in Istanbul turned out to protest the recent selection of Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul as the ruling AK Party’s candidate for president of Turkey and head of state.  They fear that he would lead the nation towards becoming an Islamic state and Sharia law. Turkey is presently a secular […]

Archbishop Williams Misses the Mark on Gay Issue Comments

Friday, April 27th, 2007

I found this On Topix and followed the link to the original article on Reuters: “Anglican head Williams says anti-gays misread Bible”. First of all, the article calls the conservative Christians -“anti-gay”. This is an unfortunate choice of titles since those of us with a conservative Christian viewpoint do no consider ourselves to be ‘anti’ […]

The Outrageous Airing of Shooter/Mass killer Cho By NBC News

Friday, April 20th, 2007

It is outrageous that NBC executives decided that their own ratings and concerns about the news business override common decency. It is nearly unforgivable that they are presenting the video screed of mass murderer Cho Seung Hui. Giving him a posthumous platform to reach out and further torture families who are mourning their dead at […]

Vs. 1-3 The two Marys and Salome went to the first Sunday morning sunrise service on Resurrection Day. The three women were at the crucifixion: Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joses, and Salome who was the mother of the Zebedee brothers- James and John (Matt. 27:56). Now they were going to the […]

Another ‘Dawkins’ Debate: Are We Better Off Without Religion?

Saturday, April 14th, 2007

I found this in Topix and followed the link to the full story in the Times Online . However it was the firsthand account by Times correspondent Ruth Gledhill that I found to be most helpful. A debate was held in London at Westminster Central Hall (March 27, 2007). The subject and proposition debated was: […]

Pagans on the Rise in America

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

Here is an article about modern pagans on the rise in America. They have their own websites, books, and conferences. Many are using the Catholic Rosary beads from their childhood to pray to pagan goddesses. Some are more syncretistic, mixing paganism and Christianity. I find it rather sad that so many have found it necessary […]

Albanians are Coming Back to God and Allah Also

Wednesday, April 4th, 2007

Albania was a closed country for years and religion was completely forbidden. Now Albanians are coming back to God but also to Allah: Albania became the first officially atheist country in the world in 1967. Its dictatorial ruler, Enver Hoxha, ordered all churches and mosques demolished or converted into sports arenas, warehouses or other secular […]
