Christians Need a NEW NORMAL

This is for the Christians out there.

I remember enjoying television as a child. Among my favorite sitcoms were: Cosby Show, A Different World, What’s Happening Now, Good Times, Amen, 227, Family Ties, Growing Pains, Punky Brewster, Alf, Different Strokes, Family Matters, Webster, Home Improvement, Fresh Prince of Bel Air . . . and others. I also LOVED Happy Days, The Jeffersons, Brady Bunch, Leave it to Beaver, I love Lucy . . . many of the sitcoms my parents loved.

I remember every now and then sneaking to watch Lavern and Shirley  when my mom wasn’t home. I know it wasn’t right. I confess, I’m not perfect and the show was funny to me! She forbade us from watching that show because my mother believed the content was too inappropriate for my young eyes and ears. Just let that sink in for a minute. Lavern and Shirley was considered inappropriate not even…

Thilly Thursday – Shaddap You Face

My daughter was howling over this. Join us!

Think one person (uh, like you) couldn’t make a difference? Watch and smile.

You know, if more schools had something fun and exciting in the morning, like some singing and party dancing (a la “cupid shuffle”) imagine how many kids would actually look forward to going to school and what a nice way it would be to set the tone for the day. Of course, letting a charismatic individual like Gary Logan have their way and not “institutionalize” it into some boring, structured thing is what makes it work.

Is it possible there is a true alternative to damaging wind turbines?

I am sad to say that I initially was one who thought wind turbines were good. Wow, was THAT wrong! Clearly the Law of Unintended Consequences is at work to a massive degree, here! Having said that, although I am reluctant to make that mistake again, I would like to share an interesting alternative. HOWEVER, I would LOVE to hear other people’s ideas of ANY potential downsides to this, because it really does seem to have some promise. My only suggestion would be to emulate the shape and action of leaves…

Beware of the Gospel Killers, Part 2

I doubt I could say it better than she has.

The Prosperity Gospel, the Wrong Gospel

Many church leaders in the twenty-first century have aided in the oppression and bondage of the scripturally illiterate masses by promoting material worship through the “prosperity” gospel. Advances in technology, such as the advent of television and internet, make the preaching of a false gospel more devastating as it is able to quickly reach large audiences.[25] These false prophets promise prosperity and healing, often in exchange for an offering or a fee. Prominent twenty-first century televangelist and Pastor Frederick K. Price is quoted as saying on his Ever Increasing Faith television broadcast that “The Bible says that he (Jesus) has left us an example that we should follow in his steps. That’s why I drive a Rolls Royce. I’m following Jesus’ steps.”[26]

Likewise, televangelist and Pastor Juanita Bynum is quoted as telling a massive viewing audience on the Trinity…

An Examination of Lives that Supposed to Matter

Lloyd's of Rochester:

In Rochester, NY there has been too much violence this year, largely by and on young black males. Of course, there are then the obligatory marches, vigils, speeches and posturing, yet the violence continues unabated. Of course. Bandaids don’t stop the source of the problem, which no one really wants to speak to/about because it is ugly and politically incorrect and requires a spine and fighting spirit. Enter Tommy Davis, a man of color with insight, wisdom, who pulls no punches as he tells it like it is without posturing or pandering! Bless him, and may more people hear what he has to say.

Once again, and far too often, the Rochester community is displaying an expressive reaction in response to the persistent violence in our city. Young black men are settling disputes by fatally reducing their opposition. Politicians and religious representatives are blaming poverty in an effort to rationalize why violence is so common among black Americans.

As I continue to engage in research as a PhD student at Piedmont International University while employed as a full-time contract chaplain at the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, I am beginning to uncover some interesting facts that oppose conventional wisdom.crime scene chaplain1

Being poor do not make people commit crimes. Ruthless lifestyles and a lack of scholastic currency are two motivating factors in the life of the criminal because one refuses to fairly compete for economic resources. I once asked an offender why he wouldn’t offend in certain neighborhoods. He responded by saying, “Those white…

The artificial tree: the “green” replacement for real trees?

Lloyd's of Rochester:

EVERY time we think we know more than God (setting ourselves up in His place) and try to improve/fix things we find ourselves in “It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time” world. For all that the Libs and unthinking environmentalists like(d) Rachel Carson, they conveniently ignore her chapter on the Kaibab deer in Grand Canyon and what happened. Here’s a link to a paper some years later. Anyone want to lay bets on this latest brainstorm for “artificial” trees? Seriously? Artificial? Summary pg 14.

The "green" forests of the future? The “green” forests of the future?

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Is the artificial tree the solution to climate change? There have been a number of stories advocating artificial trees recently. Proponents of artificial trees believe that normal trees haven’t got the capacity to deliver the CO2 reductions they want. They insist we should try to improve on nature, by replacing natural respiration, with industrial scale absorption and disposal of CO2.

For example, consider the following story;

Is an artificial tree part of the solution to climate change? These guys think so.

… What if we had a way to suck that excess the CO2 right back out of the sky?

Well, actually, we do, says Chris Jones, a chemical engineer at Georgia Tech in Atlanta.

“These are our best ways of capturing CO2 from the air,” Jones says as he walks under a canopy of trees on the school’s…

France: Algerian Muslim Immigrant Chops-off His Wife’s Hands and Feet With a Machete in Front of Their Two Children

Lloyd's of Rochester:

And the father was…Hindu? No, no, must have been Buddhist. No, wait, wrong again, a Christian, right? It is, after all, such a violent religion, and you hear about their world-wide violence all the time, right. What? A Muslim?!? But it’s the “religion of peace” and you NEVER hear about that kind of violence among them, right?

Islam’s War on Women Continues…

by, Par Aurélie Foulon | Le Parisien | Eeyore @ Vlad Tepes | Original Translation by, CB Sashenka

(Special thanks to our friend and colleague Eeyore and to CB Sashenka for the amazing translation)

Solidarity is being organized in Evry (Essonne), after the terrible tragedy that occurred at Diderot Square, in the rather quiet residential area of Champtier-du-Coq. Since Wednesday, a fund-raising appeal has been circulating on social networks to collect enough money for the funeral of a mother. Monday morning she was killed by her husband with a machete, right before the eyes of their children.

The drama took place in an otherwise uneventful morning, in the family’s apartment. “A known family in Evry, in a good way,” assures someone from the neighborhood. The couple – parents of two older daughters of 16 and 18 and of 6-year old twins – was at home. On…

Correcting four myths about the history of the Crusades

Lloyd's of Rochester:

All you who are accustomed to slamming the Crusades clearly have not done your homework. Take a moment to actually read this short article and become a thinking person.

Originally posted on WINTERY KNIGHT:

Crusader Crusader

Here is an interesting article from First Principles Journal.


The verdict seems unanimous. From presidential speeches to role-playing games, the crusades are depicted as a deplorably violent episode in which thuggish Westerners trundled off, unprovoked, to murder and pillage peace-loving, sophisticated Muslims, laying down patterns of outrageous oppression that would be repeated throughout subsequent history. In many corners of the Western world today, this view is too commonplace and apparently obvious even to be challenged.

But unanimity is not a guarantee of accuracy. What everyone “knows” about the crusades may not, in fact, be true. From the many popular notions about the crusades, let us pick four and see if they bear close examination.

The four myths:

  • Myth #1: The crusades represented an unprovoked attack by Western Christians on the Muslim world.
  • Myth #2: Western Christians went on crusade because their greed led them to plunder Muslims in…
