- St. Joseph Parish, Wheaton, Illinois.
- You find the Muslim Obama schtick in the darndest places.
- Pillar and Foundation of Truth.
- Mitt’s real religion.
I finished my Reunion weekend with a visit to an Church I hadn’t encountered before, St. Joseph in Wheaton, Illinois. I did not expect, nor did I get, a spiritual happy meal at the end of a drive-by Liturgy.
For various reasons, I think this, of the three Orthodox Churches currently serving Evangelicalism’s Holy City, will be “my Church” when I’m in the Wheaton area – which likely won’t be for another 5 years.
- calls the President “Muslim-In-Chief,”
- opines that “the bottom line is that Obama is a Farrakhan-like black Muslim,” and
- plans a “Citizen’s Grand Jury” for Halloween to indite the President for a bunch of things that need the drumbeat adjective “treasonous” to cover their nakedness.
I’d wisecrack about “I don’t get to the fever swamps often,” but calling Worldnet Daily “fever swamps” is a bit like calling Playboy “hard core pornography.” In both cases, I fear there’s much worse stuff out there. But WND is Krustian, and ought to pretend to have a little respect for the commandment against bearing false witness.
The Pillar and Foundation of Truth, a homiletical parable about an heirloom family Bible and the pedestal on which it rested.
Robin Phillips has an interesting and plausible perspective on Mitt Romney’s religion: ”[M]y main concern is that the real ‘religion’ animating Romney’s thinking is more subtle than Mormonism, namely the religion of spiritual nationalism.” From there, he links for four articles should the reader want to explore further.
None of this means that you shouldn’t vote for Romney. On the contrary, I am going to be voting for him and I urge all other Americans to do likewise. But we should do so with eyes wide open.
That’s a quote from Phillips, by the way, without endorsement.
