Rest Stop

Who doesn’t like a little controversy…

Romney’s Speech Strengthens Theologian’s Endorsement (Christianity Today)

After presidential candidate Mitt Romney gave his highly anticipated speech addressing his Mormon faith Thursday, it only strengthened theologian Wayne Grudem’s October endorsement.

America’s Atheists: Believe it or not (The Economist)

What accounts for the failure of atheists to organise and wield influence? One problem is that they are hardly a cohesive group.

Gospel Truth (NY Times)

While National Geographic’s translation supported the provocative interpretation of Judas as a hero, a more careful reading makes clear that Judas is not only no hero, he is a demon.

In Pursuit of the “Undeconstructable” (The Ooze)

Deconstruction is thus the continual longing for the undeconstructable, and in that sense it is deeply relevant to a religious standpoint and a belief in the existence and relevance of God.

The Crusaders (Rolling Stone)

Meet the Dominionists — biblical literalists who believe God has called them to take over the U.S. government.

Gunman Posted Anti-Christian Rant Between Shootings (Christian Post)

“Feel no remorse, no sense of shame, I don’t care if I live or die in the shoot-out. All I want to do is kill and injure as many of you … as I can especially Christians who are to blame for most of the problems in the world.”

MacArthur: The Emergent Church is a Form of Paganism (Crosswalk)

Let me just cut to the chase on this one: [Doug] Pagitt is a Universalist.

I probably shouldn’t do this…but (the dougpagittBlog)

For those who want me to respond to allegations of being a universalist and a false teacher I will say I am not. But for most that will not suffice.

– Jesus Creed does Politics–Democrats / Republicans (Jesus Creed)

Simply give your reasons for why you are voting for a specific candidate. We’ll call this “Jesus Creed” and “constructive” politics.

The Hipper Than Thou Pastor (Time Magazine)

Rob Bell, whom the Chicago Sun-Times has called an heir to Billy Graham, heads off to give a sermon on parenting that starts with a soccer-dad riff and ends with a recording of Bruce Springsteen talking about the Virgin Mary.
