Penn Gillette Loves Him Some Gideons

posted by Tony Jones

The first time I saw the little green version of the Gideon’s Bible was in college.  (Not a Bible really.  More like 1/3 of a Bible.  It’s got the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs.)  I was driving my car along […]

Ending Christian Euphemisms: "Fundamentalist"
I've taken some heat in the comment section for using yesterday's post on "unbiblical" and a "higher view of scripture" as a thin foil for my own disregard of biblical standards.
