The New Christians


Quote of the Day

posted by Tony Jones

It goes to Andrew Sullivan, who wrote of President Obama’s Cairo speech,

At its heart, the speech sprang, it seemed to me, a spiritual
conviction that human differences, if openly acknowledged, need not
remain crippling. It was a deeply Christian – and not Christianist -
address; seeking to lead by example and patience rather than seeking to
impose from certainty.

No, Doug Groothuis found the quote of the day on Obama’s speech. I quote him:
“The New York Times ends its story on Obama’s speech in Cairo on America and Islam with this:
‘Mr. Bahgat, who attended the speech at Cairo University, said that one of the most important elements of the speech was what was left out. “I think it was remarkable the speech left out the term terrorism completely,” he said. “It may have been a paradigm shift for the United States, away from using this politically charged word.”’
Remarkable indeed. The ostrich strikes again–and jeopardizes the free world in the process.”
Yeah, I think that’s the quote of the day.

But…Terrorism doesn’t make us feel better about ourselves!! And of course that is the highest possible goal yes? This is why we elected the man, because he made us “feel” better about by postulating Utopian ideologies and ignoring reality.

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. To the contrary, I was pointing to the use of the word unbiblical as a stand-in for a particularly thin hermeneutic. Ther
