The job of the Christian in most cases, it seems to me, is to live a counter-cultural life in the midst of the prevailing culture. That's what "counter-cultural" means. If we live off […]

UPDATE: See below. It’s Christmas Eve, and Amazon.com’s homepage promises the last-minute holiday shopper that, with Amazon’s Gift Cards, you can “Give them exactly what they want — guaranteed.” “What they want” on Christmas, of course, is Christmas presents.

At the request of The Masked Chicken, I offer this recent, brief Christmas post (from my blog, Old World Swine). More on the way as Christmas approaches. – T.J. I love this little passage on the power of myth; Father Christmas is not an allegory of snow and holly; he is not merely the stuff […]

Before this next post, I just want to say – in reply to some inquiries – that I believe Jimmy is just fine. He has had some projects in the works and has found blog time harder to squeeze in, but he has not dropped into a wormhole, as far as I know. It isn’t […]

Yesterday I linked a post from Anne Rice arguing that the Democratic Party best represents gospel values regarding feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, etc. By coincidence, Thomas Sowell just put up a column arguing that, in fact, politicians on the left (not quite the same thing as members of […]
