It's been a while since I've posted anything (though I've been getting a lot of mileage out of 'Calvinist Romance' and the 'Cavalcade of Bad Nativities'), so I thought I'd do a quick update (I've been saving these links in my email, but not taking the time to post them):
I just got a John Piper email update that took a cue from Osama's hatred against "the Cross and Zionism." A great quote from Piper: "To hate the cross is to hate the demonstration of the love of God, because the cross is the greatest display of God's love that ever was or ever will be."

This is such a strange way to protest the commercialization of Christmas ... I dare say that this isn't really what Paul had in mind when he exhorted us to not be conformed to the pattern of this world...
Apparently all the buzz over antioxidants is starting to get debunked. Here's a great quote from the article: "Healthy diets are like healthy investment portfolios — diversified."
A university class on creationism has been cancelled because the professor let his true cards show ... so much for the "tolerance" of everybody but Christians. Here's what the guy who was supposed to teach the class said he intended to do with it: "Mirecki [the prof] recently sent an e-mail to members of a student organization in which he referred to religious conservatives as 'fundies' and said a course depicting intelligent design as mythology would be a 'nice slap in their big fat face.'" The chancellor of the school appropriately called these comments "repugnant and vile."
I have one more post that I've been saving up, but I'll save it for another day :)
