I remember when The Anchoress just started her career as a blogger. I told her back then that I thought she was going to be a great success and she, with her normal humility, told me that she didn’t see it happening any time soon. Well, that was four years ago. Since then, she’s been […]

The Anchoress sent me this story a week ago, but I wanted to save it for today. It’s the story of 10 year old Namrata Nayak, a Christian who was attacked and disfigured by Hindus because of her faith. This is her witness: “Christmas is a time to thank the baby Jesus who saved me […]

Why Chik-fil-A is Closed on Sundays and an Ode to Delicious Food

I admit, I’m in love with everything edible that issues forth from that magnificent eatery knows as Chik-fil-A. It is, quite simply, the finest fast-food restaurant in the known universe and the most scrumptious item on its menu is the sweet tea. No restaurant I have ever patronized gets sweet tea like Chik-fil-A does. It […]

I'm Beginning to Think the "Humorless Muslim" Stereotype is True

Do Muslim leaders have a sense of humor, even a small one? I’m beginning to serious doubt that they do based on this story. A company called Brick Arms makes and sells custom Lego Minifigs. One of their figures is called “White Bandit” and looks a lot like an Islamist terrorist. That’s caused the leader […]

National Review, on the bigotry and violence of the Proposition 8 supporters in California: The outbreak of attacks on the Mormon church since the passage of Proposition 8 has been chilling: envelopes full of suspicious white powder were sent to church headquarters in Salt Lake City; protesters showed up en masse to intimidate Mormon small-business […]

Kathleen Parker, Live from the Crazy Train

I’m beginning to think that something bad happened to Kathleen Parker about two months ago. Either a random Christian ran up behind her and yelled “boo” which caused her to drop her expensive Starbucks latte or someone told her that Sarah Palin was a hell of a lot hotter than she is. Whatever happened, it […]
