Volunteers from a Florida-based group have distributed Bibles to the lunchrooms of several high schools in the Sunshine State.

Christians go 1 for 4 in ECHR

To follow up on the earlier story of 4 Christians who claimed human rights violations, the Richmond and Twickenham Times reports that only one succeeded. The four Christians claimed their employers’ actions went against articles nine and 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which protected their rights to “freedom of thought, conscience and …

The greatest common denominator

Thought for the day: Christians think Muslims and Jews and Hindus are wrong about God(s). Muslims think Christians and Jews and Hindus are wrong about God(s). Jews think Christians and Muslims and Hindus are wrong about God(s). Hindus think Christians and Jews and Muslims are wrong about God(s). And we agree with all of the …

“Don’t treat us like we treat gays!”

Usually I leave the World Net Daily beat to Ed, but this came up in my Google alerts, and I couldn’t resist. The European Court of Human Rights is set to deliver a key verdict early next week in a major case against the United Kingdom surrounding anti-Christian discrimination. I’m not sure exactly how the …

The atheist Black Knight

Over at Evangelical Realism, we’re looking at Pastor Feinstein’s “victory” dance around his defeated foe—at least according to the mental script he seems to be following. Then again, perhaps his victory is not quite so complete as he imagines. Drop by if you’re interested.

Question of the week: Will Jesus protect me?

It’s fascinating sometimes to dip into the real conversations that people are having, just to see what kind of world they live in. Ok, there’s an element of tabloidish voyeurism here, I admit it, but I can’t help taking a peek now and then. Here’s my pick for Question of the Week, from Yahoo! Answers. …

“Forcing” Christians to violate their religious beliefs?

Holy Antichrist, Batman! Hold onto your utility belts, because, as CNS News breathlessly reports, the Obama administration has found a way to legally force Christians to violate their religious beliefs, despite the First Amendment. In a legal argument formally presented in federal court in the case of Hobby Lobby v. Kathleen Sebelius, the Obama administration …

Trust vs trust

As a follow-up to yesterday’s post, I think it’s also worth mentioning that their are two kinds of trust. Our friend murk seems to think that only believers acknowledge that their beliefs are based on trust, and that skeptics are mistakenly assuming they don’t need to trust.

It’s all about who you trust

For a while now I’ve been having a rather hit-or miss conversation with a Christian commenter who goes by “murk” and who wants me to put my trust in “the only one who can uphold these things.” Unfortunately, no such person shows up in the real world, so murk’s invitation is actually urging me, in …

A quick note about the contest

Just a couple quick clarifications about the billboard contest. First, I’ve updated the rules to specifically mention model releases—it’s up to the entrant to obtain any necessary licenses, permissions or releases for any material or recognizable person appearing in their billboard. Second, most of the entries I’ve received so far have not been billboards, they’ve …
