Engaging Essentials

Trusting each of you had a blessed Thanksgiving.  I was struck during our celebrations of how uniquely American Thanksgiving is.  Not just that, but how conjoined it is to Christianity.  It’s an interesting demonstration of our nation’s religious heritage.  Now, on to the essential reading list:

Single Member Districts – Hoppy’s Commentary calls for, “single member districts” in the WV House of Delegates.  Start reading up on this and getting familiar.  You’ll be hearing a lot about this in 2011, I’m sure.

Who Needs Marriage? – Al Mohler does his usually excellent, incisive critique of the importance of marriage and reveals some things we may not want to think about ourselves in the process.

Abortion and the 2010 Election – RedState examines how abortion did play a monumental role in the 2010 election and any suggestion that libertarianism = pro-life conservatism is incorrect.

Learning from Westboro – Pastor and author Kevin DeYoung examines the protestors from Westboro Baptist Church with an eye toward learning from their overt foolishness. He has three main points: (1) Any truth promoted to the exclusion of other truths can become untruth, (2) It matters how we’re heard, and (3) We must refuse to play into the binary stereotype which says the opposite of unconditional affirmation is fuming hatred. Read and learn.
