Saying goodbye to Christian America

Saying goodbye to Christian America: "One day in a doctoral seminar at Union Seminary, my ethics mentor Larry Rasmussen said words I will never forget: “There are advantages and disadvantages in every power position for the church.”

The ultimate Christian social ethics issue of our time is not any particular moral issue such as abortion, war or gay rights. We argue fiercely about these issues, sure. But the ultimate Christian social ethics issue, at least in the United States, is the fact of declining Christian cultural power — and its fallout in both church and culture. This is the context within which every particular moral issue is contested."

The Comfort Zone: Words of Comfort: Waste into Food.: "Did you hear that scientists have created a machine that can turn your discarded food into hygienically sealed food packages? Just toss the contraption your left-overs and overnight it will make them into a delicious meal that can be fried, poached, scrambled, or made into an omelet. Place one of these feathered machines with a similar model and it will miraculously reproduce a white package that contains another producing machine."
