This is a great web site. It shizzolizes any website you want. Snoop Dogg

Today I had my first Midterm Exam in Church History! I made a funny mistake. Instead of writing St. Benedict of Clairvaux I wrote St. Bernard (like the dog)!

It was great to get the exam over with. Now I got to study for the next exam in two weeks!

No time for blogging during exams ūüė¶

“In the light, therefore, of our faith in the Trinity I must make this choice, regardless of danger I must make know the gift of God and everlasting consolation, without fear and frankly I must speared everywhere the name of God so that after my decease I may leave a bequest to my brethren and sons whom I have baptized in the Lord–so many thousands of people.”

This guy had a passion to share the Gospel! I read his confession this week. It was interesting to see how God used his enslavement to spread a message of freedom.

I found this great article referenced on David Holiday’s Central America and Beyond Blog. The article on is on the history of El Salvador.

If you are interested here is an article I wrote for Regent’s school newspaper:
Are We As Diverse As We Think?

Jon Stewart

“[Stewart] calling hosts Carlson and Paul Begala “partisan hacks” and chiding them for not raising the level of discourse on their show beyond sloganeering.

“What you do is not honest. What you do is partisan hackery,” Stewart said. “You have a responsibility to the public discourse, and you fail miserably.

“I watch your show every day, and it kills me. It’s so painful to watch,” Stewart added as it became apparent that the comedian was not joking. He went on to hammer the network, and the media in general, for its coverage of the presidential debates. Stewart said it was a disservice to viewers to immediately seek reaction from campaign insiders and presidential cheerleaders following the debates, noting that the debates’ famed “Spin Alley” should be called “Deception Lane.”

“The thing is, we need your help,” Stewart said. “Right now, you’re helping the politicians and the corporations and we’re left out there to mow our lawns.”

Nice job Stewart. I never watch his show. Maybe I got to watch it now.

Today I read a chapter out of Gods that Fail by Vinoth Ramachandra.

He writes:
‚ÄúWhen human beings give to any aspect of God‚Äôs creation (for instance, sexuality and/or fertility) or to the works of their hands (e.g. science, the nation-state, the market mechanism) the worship that is due to the Creator alone, they call up invisible forces that eventually dominate them. When what is meant to be a servant is treated as a master, it quickly becomes a tyrant.‚ÄĚ p. 112

He quotes Psalms 115:4-8
4      Their idols are silver and gold,
¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†The work of man’s hands.
5
       They have mouths, but they (9) cannot speak;
          They have eyes, but they cannot see;
6
       They have ears, but they cannot hear;
          They have noses, but they cannot smell;
7
       They have hands, but they cannot feel;
          They have feet, but they cannot walk;
          They cannot make a sound with their throat.
8
       Those who make them will become like them,
          Everyone who trusts in them.

This guy is deep. I have to read the whole book after I read this chapter.
I like his style.

Wondering the accuracy of Bush and Kerry?
Check out Fact Check
Bush was off on tax cuts going to the low and middle income families.
Kerry was wrong about the Pell grants.

Clyde Prestowitz wrote Rouge Nation. Prestowitz in an interview with Mother Jones claims that Bush administration is not conservative, but liberal. This is coming from a conservative and former secretary of commerice under Regan. This might book might be a good read before election times.

The sad thing is that I don’t think Kerry is any different.

Anybody seen Life As We Know It? This is filmed in Vancouver. We saw the camera crew a few blocks down from our place filming. You might see Lisa and I walk through the screen one of these days.

Anybody seen Dance 360 on UPN? I thought the show was terrible. The people couldn’t even dance and the commentators were terrible. The music was alright.
