EVERYTHING BUT SPORTS: Tuesday linkfest!

milton-stanley-column bylineWell, I got so involved with deadlines yesterday that I forgot to post anything here.

Some good news is that at his weblog Jeff Weddle has been writing along the same lines as I have about thinking for ourselves. Here’s a sample of Jeff’s explanation of Why Christians Can’t Ask Questions:

One of the comforts of organized religion is that you never have to think. If you are indoctrinated with how people think, you become a follower of “your guys,” all questions are answered and you can skate through life with much assurance.

If you crack the covers of your Bible, however, and begin to read, you’re going to be confronted with stuff. Stuff that will inspire questions. Stuff that will make you have thoughts some will condemn you for ever thinking. When the boat begins to rock, the rockers will get tossed into the drink!

As always, it’s worth your time to read Jeff’s whole posting.

Here are a couple of sobering thoughts on abortion. At National Review Online,  Lindsey Grudnicki points out that Wendy Davis Received Three Times More Coverage than Gosnell’s Horrors. And in another installment from The Truth Hurts Department, Matt Walsh explains how, “I don’t personally support slavery, but I can’t tell you what to do with your own property.” As always, pretty much everything on Matt’s weblog is worth reading.

Thanks for visting.
