News clip roundup
- CBS correspondnet breathing on ventilator: So... combined with the US government's propaganda media organization going without a Baghdad correspondent for 6 months, how is the liberal unpatriotic media supposed to report the dearth of good news in Iraq if they're being killed?
- Bush troubled by reports of Iraq killings: Or as the headline should read "Bush angered and ashamed by reports of a massacre that could further undermine our effort."
- Taken out of my church by the religious right: A must-read article as scenes like this have been and are way too common. Folks, it's all about control - dissent is suppressed, theology is substituted for cultural conservatism, and our faith is hijacked by those who refuse to shed our base human instincts and believe the entire Bible. Congregational churches are run as democracies, not military dictatorships. There is a difference between "Christians" and "Christianists".
- Left Behind Game - Visit their website and view the preview movie. My wife tells me that the theology behind the Left Behind series (I couldn't stomach the books because of the shabby writing, much less the garbage theology) isn't cut and dried as these folks make it. This "Christian" video game will do more harm in the name of Christ then good.
There is a difference between the Salvation Army folks and the Christianista Crusader Army, and it's a shame to watch folks fall into lockstep as dissenters are pushed out.
