Here are some posts that caught my eye this week:
Justin Taylor wrote about the latest controversy surrounding Pat Robertson. Perhaps I have just noticed it more this time, but this seems like the first moment that mainstream evangelical leaders have openly rebuked the guy. Which is both good and bad. Good that someone is finally saying “we really shouldn’t pay attention to this nut.” Bad, or perhaps interesting, is that of all the ridiculous and controversial things he has said, it was a comment about divorce that brought the full wrath of evangelicalism against him.
From the Her-Meneutics Blog is a post about Christian education that I found particularly insightful.
From the Internet Monk comes an interesting post about the difference between a philosophical view of moral development and a psychological one.
A couple articles of note:
First, I found this article on the discovery of new planets (several of which may be inhabitable), coupled with the announcement of a new deep-space vehicle by NASA this week particularly interesting.
Second, this video on the exploitation (and even enslavement) of poor Londoner’s was particularly disturbing to me.
Enjoy, let me know what you think, and let me know if you saw anything else of interest on the web this week!
