Ryft’s Linkables (17 July 2010)
Written by David Smart, Posted in Misc
Some of the things I’ve been reading this week:
- Peter Jacob with the Daily Times looks at the UN and its Defamation of Religion resolution.
- Brian Riedl, writing an opinion article for the Wall Street Journal, says that runaway government spending, not declining tax revenues (e.g., Bush tax cuts), is the reason the U.S. faces dramatic budget shortfalls for years to come.
- The "religion of peace" threatens a woman into terrified seclusion for the sake of her life.
- Washington Post staff writers Greg Miller and Thomas Erdbrink tell of how the U.S. paid Iranian nuclear scientist $5 million for aid to CIA.
- Phil Johnson at Pyromaniacs compares the stories of Crying Wind and Ergun Caner and evangelicalism’s history of celebrity frauds.
- Mark Lamprecht explores why it was so deeply incongruent for Liberty University to invite Glenn Beck to give the Commencement speech.
- H. David Schuringa, with the Crossroad Bible Institute, writes a brief but poignant article asking, "Can Atheism Create a Virtuous Society?" (PDF)
- If getting a tattoo is forbidden in the Bible, then so are bowl-cuts. And no, this is not comedy.
And on the lighter side:
