OD Today: 3 January 2009 (late edition)

January 3, 2009

Some backing and filling, some stray links.

  1. Bruce Prescott, liberal Baptist, on Southern Baptist families and divorce. “SBC leaders leaders still think the solution to the problem of divorce is to tell wives to “submit” to their husbands. “Submissive” wives don’t question their husband’s directions and they hold their tongues when they know their husband is leading the family astray.”
  2. A transcript of Paris Reidhead‘s sermon Ten Shekels and A Shirt.
  3. Orrin Judd links to a Jerusalem Post article on the current conflict between Israel and Hamas, thanking George W. Bush for his support.
  4. Orrin Judd excerpts a couple of articles, one suggesting that reason is insufficient as a basis of government, the other on results from a recent Harris poll regarding American attitudes toward abortion.
  5. Henry Neufield on the case of Keith John Sampson, a student and janitor at IUPUI found guilty of racial harassment for reading Todd Tucker’s book Notre Dame vs. The Klan (see als0).
  6. Michael Davis on Muslim unrest in Rosengård, Sweden. “The problem is that those in the West fail to understand that Islam is far from being just another religion–it is at its core a way of life. A way of life which is in many ways at odds with much of the free societies that it is transplanted in.”
  7. David Hocking relays talking points regarding Israel and Hamas from Shimon Erem of Israel Christian Nexus. “The Consulate General of Israel has asked me to convey some basic points to help you better understand the facts of the current military operation in Gaza. We hope they will assist you in communications with your congregation and others with whom you are in contact.”
  8. Christine at Talk Wisdom links to Mike Rucker’s comments on Israel/Hamas, offers her own comments. “I have often believed that Israel needs a strong leader again. They need a man like Benjamin Netanyahu.”
  9. Howard Fisher on Muslim perspectives on Jesus. “To be honest, I have to wonder if the Muslim mind is able to grasp that Jesus had a purpose which required far more cunning and wisdom than man would ever conceive.”
  10. Chris Rosebrough shares video clips from Patricia King and Joshua Mills regarding “transports in the Spirit,” in this case to China; she also plugs something called the Extreme Plunge Volunteer Program.
  11. John Sexton plugs a Fox News program on Mosab Hassan Yousef.
  12. Kit passes on links to claims that Keith Green was murdered by Catholics.
  13. Ingrid Schlueter, this time at her personal weblog, discusses outrages regarding sexuality and femininity in America. “I recently watched a program on EWTN, the Catholic TV channel. While I disagree on some things, their teachings on family and God’s plan for motherhood is beautiful and helpful, and is utterly absent in freak show evangelical television.

We’d like to wish Ingrid Schlueter and her baby good health.
