Ayn Rand and Jesus: Do they teach opposing viewpoints about economy?

Date: 07/18/2013

  An article on the Blaze reported that "Prominent GOP leaders have praised Ayn Rand’s philosophy and beliefs. But Rand made it clear that you can’t follow her and Christ. The GOP budget, authored by Rand acolyte Paul Ryan, is the perfect example." How can an atheist like Ann Rand and Jesus have anything in common?  Well,  they can. In fact, the Bible teaches that God's truth can be ...

On Teaching About Judaism (Part Four)

Date: 06/25/2013

As discussed in previous blog entries , a fairly sizable percentage of the American public seems to know surprisingly little about many of the basics of Judaism. In my own world religions courses, some students begin the semester with no real knowledge of the Jewish faith, and may even harbor some fairly common misunderstandings about it. Many newcomers to Judaism (or to the Bible, for that mat ...

Apostles of Comedy: Onwards and Upwards

Date: 06/24/2013

The very funny Jeff Allen ("Thou Shalt Laugh"), Ron Pearson ("Malcolm & Eddie") and Keith Alberstadt ("Next Big Comic") perform on tour in the family-friendly "Apostles of Comedy: Onwards and Upwards."  It is nice to hear good, old-fashioned humor about the frustrations of daily life and relationships that does not resort to vulgarity or bad language.  Dating, bad weather, cell phones, exerci ...

On Teaching About Judaism (Part Two)

Date: 06/18/2013

As I observed in my previous blog entry , a rather sizable percentage of the American public seems to know surprisingly little about the basics of Judaism. In my own world religions courses, when we take up the study of the Jewish faith, I often find that a fair number of students possess little to no previous background knowledge of this religion, and sometimes harbor a number of fairly common ...

On Teaching About Judaism (Part One)

Date: 06/16/2013

One might expect that many if not most Americans would have at least a passing familiarity with the basics of Judaism. After all, about 80% or so of the American public self-identifies as Christian, and Christianity and Judaism are inextricably intertwined. Both are Abrahamic faiths, making them closely related religious siblings; the Christian Old Testament is (basically) the Jewish Bible; Jesu ...

At the Intersection of Church and State, the Violations Continue...

Date: 05/20/2013

In a previous blog entry , I commented upon a recent news story involving the cancellation of an Arkansas school district's elementary school graduation ceremonies in the wake of a local controversy over prayer, which the district had intended to incorporate as part of the official proceedings. Rather than simply nix the planned prayers, the district instead cancelled the ceremonies altogether. ...

It's Not About Being "Too P.C." or Not Wanting to "Offend"; It's About the LAW

Date: 05/13/2013

There seems to be a rather widespread misunderstanding regarding the actual underlying motivations of people who object to schools leading prayers and courts posting copies of the Ten Commandments, or who protest against "under God" being in the Pledge of Allegiance and "In God We Trust" being on our money, and so forth. Lots of people seem to harbor the impression that such complainers are ju ...
