Take a minute or two

Hootsbuddy asks for readers to consider the woman translator who survived the attack on Steven Vincent in Hootsbuddy’s Place: JOIN ME IN SUPPORT OF NOUR AL-KHAL. Please visit his blog to update on this situation.

Rodney Olsen has “discussions of body image” with Psychologist/Counsellor Genevieve Milnes. A link to an mp3 recording of the radio show.


You might want to read both a news article, ‘Church-State Question Before Justices‘, and an essay by Dr. Bob in juxtaposition. “Moving the Ancient Boundaries” is the second part …and, well, might take more than a minute or two of your time, but is worth it.

Exploring the pushing of cultural boundaries, the erosion of the general civitas, we follow a tracing of the path that leads us to the present confusion that pits equivocal ideals of freedom against the best hope of addressing many of our social inequities. What I mean by that is that we have removed the boundaries and changed the landmarks of our society in such a way that now the idea of “faith-based” answers to the needs of society has become somehow threatening. The infiltration of the concept that man has nothing more than his physical existence continues to lead us all into a wilderness of treating all mankinds ills without understanding that sometimes it is the soul which needs the care and treatment.

Somehow the idea of anything to do with “faith” has become the enemy windmill of all our best intentions to be balanced, fair, and tolerant. Make no mistake, in the direction we are following legislatively, we are closing the doors for people of faith to be allowed to minister to society’s problems in an organized way. If you think this is far-fetched, just remember the cases where churches were sued for giving counsel, etc.
Think about where we really want to go with that.

  1. Thank you for the link. I am hopeful that things will work out for Nour. The situation is unsteady to the point of life-threatening, but when she escapes her story has all the makings of at least one book and docu-drama. The MP3 interview makes it all very real.
