Yes, it's been a while. Here are a few items of interest that have come through my news reader in recent weeks...
-Rachel Held Evans puts the phrase "The Bible clearly teaches" into some much-needed perspective.
-David Brin offers a perspective on our current political situation that I find compelling. Granted, everyone thinks their political viewpoint is the best one, but he makes some good points.
-John Shore points out the hypocrisy that biblical literalists commonly display when they voice their condemnations of homosexuality.
-And in this pair of posts, we see how evangelism conducted by those (theists and non-theists alike) with a tribalistic 'us vs. them' mentality fails to be persuasive or winsome.
