Around the Web

There were a lot of things which caught my attention this past week most importantly is the recent news of the devastating earthquake which tore through Haiti on Tuesday. Aid has been pouring in from all corners of the world along with their prayers. There are those, however, who are taking this tragic event to support their own political and religious views. Doug B. over at Groping the Elephant has two responses on this horrific crisis. The first is good ole' Rush Limbaugh "enlightening" his audience how the Obama administration is using this catastrophe for a photo op. Really, Rush, really?

The second response from Pat "Direct-line-to-God" Robertson infuriated me when I first heard it but is typical response coming from him.

I just don't understand how these televangelists, who use natural disasters as a sign of God's displeasure, sleep at night for condemning the innocent who experience the disaster firsthand. Although I personally don't believe that any natural or unnatural suffering is the cause of our displeasing God this is an example of compassionless Christianity to the extreme: collecting funds to save the very people Pat believes deserved suffering.

On a more positive note, it seems that Muslims are more Christ-like than Christians like Mr. Robertson as Aziz Poonawalla reports on CAIR and their fundraiser to help rebuild the churches firebombed by extremists in Malaysia. Muslims helping to rebuild churches destroyed by Muslim extremists over the use of "Allah" by Christians? News like this warms my heart.

Here's a video, via Professor James McGrath at Exploring our Matrix, which I believe sums up my views on the topic of Biblical Inerrancy. Enjoy.

And here's a video which I thought was incredibly creative. Enjoy.
