Pantaleo Supervised by Black Female Cop
“Pantaleo who applied the lethal chokehold on Eric Garner was supervised by an African-American female NYPD sergeant. Having that black sergeant in charge of that crime scene takes race out of the equation. As awful as Pantaleo’s actions appear on that video, at no time does that black sergeant order Pantaleo to stop choking Garner.”

A Point of View: Has modern art exhausted its power to shock?
When one throws off the God who is there and is not silent, one throws off meaning and the ability to communicate it; which is precisely what art is. The loss of God is the loss of meaning and expression. The loss of these leaves behind only shock and obscenity. When shock fails to stimulate and obscenity becomes boring, all that remains is death – of art and life. Jesus came to save the world and make ALL things new.

Is Evangelical Worship Headed for a Crash?
“You’re not reading the ramblings of a curmudgeony guy complaining about all the new-fangled things the kids are doing these days, with their drums and tom-toms and electric geetars. You’re reading the heart-cry of a normal guy who’s worried about what worship leaders are doing to themselves and their congregations. People are tuning out and giving up and just watching.”

Gay marriage and the death of freedom
‘Consider France. Hundreds of thousands of French people — or ‘bigots’, as the gay-marriage lobby brands anyone who disagrees with it — marched against the legalisation of gay marriage in 2013. And they were beaten and tear-gassed by riot cops. Parisians in t-shirts celebrating traditional marriage were arrested for holding ‘unauthorised protests’. In the words of Parisian writer John Laughland, critics of gay marriage were turned into ‘ideological enemies’ of the French state. It’s a funny expansion of freedom that so violently pummels the right to protest.’

Pulpit and Pen on Evangelicals’ Responses to Recent Events:

I’m less concerned about tone than I am ideology. The facts, not the rhetoric. Ideas have consequences that outstrip inflection.

Most Americans See Race Relations Worsening Since Obama’s Election
What will be “the” solution of “hope” and “change” next time around? A woman? A black woman? Anything but the Gospel of Jesus Christ and its power to transform not just individual hearts but entire nations – even the world.
