The Faith Forum – wondering about poverty

posted by J-Walking

Midway through – Jim Wallis has tried to interject discussions of poverty into the forum and, to some degree, has succeeded. But this is less a forum about faith and poverty and more a forum about faith and divisive social issues. It would be far more interesting if Jim and his panel of experts were moderating the whole thing.

Earth to Joe Biden: if the USA “is the only nation I know of that makes reference to God in its founding documents…” you sure don’t know very much – which, sad to say, those of us outside the Red, White and Blue no longer find surprising about many U.S. politicians. You then cited “we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal” – like that’s a really clear example of a reference to God!Your next door neighbor, Canada, actually articulates the G-O-D word in its Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Edwards said he wanted to *eradicate* poverty… wow, thats an admirable plan. He talks more about it on his website. http://www.johnedwards.com/moralleadership/

Jim Wallis? What could he possibly know about Christianity? He hardly has any grasp of the concept outside of his Marxism peddling in the name of helping the poor. You can smell his socialist doctrine a mile away. He’s just a simple Democrat lobbyist.

Dancing... or drinking through life
I am not even sure that I know how to do a link anymore. I'm giving it a shot though so, three readers, please forgive me if I mess this up. So Rod Dreher's sister is battling cancer. It is nasty.

Back...
I'm back here at JWalking after a bit of time because I just want someplace to record thoughts from time to time. I doubt that many of the thoughts will be political - there are plenty upon plenty of people offering their opinions on everything political and I doubt that I have much to add that will

Learning to tell a story
For the last ten months or so I've been engaged in a completely different world - the world of screenwriting. It began as a writing project - probably the 21st Century version of a yen to write the great American novel - a shot at a screenplay. I knew that I knew nothing about the art but was inspir

And just one more
I have, I think, just one more round of chemo left. When I go through my pill popping regimen tomorrow morning it will be the last time for this particular round of drugs. Twenty-three rounds, it seems, is enough. What comes next? We'll go back to what we did after the surgery. We'll watch and measu
