Voddie Baucham in Moscow Next Week

CRF will be hosting an event with Dr. Voddie Baucham, next week (January 26), and he will be speaking on “Why Gay is Not the New Black” at the University of Idaho.

To wet your whistle, here’s a great message from Voddie. So if you’re in the Moscow area, please come out and join us.


For All You Twitter-ers . . .

I’ve just added a feature on this blog that — hopefully — will allow you to share quotes from blog posts which you find particularly share-able. So, getting down to it, there are two ways of spreading the love.

First, if you simply highlight text anywhere on this blog, it will immediately give you the option of tweeting out that quote. Try it with this quote from Jonathan Edwards…highlight it and see the magic Twitter-Bird appear to take your message to all your Twitter followers:

The happiness of the creature consists in rejoicing in God, by which also God is magnified and exalted.
–Jonathan Edwards

The second way to do this is by means of “pull quotes,” which I will begin putting in-line with the text, like this: The happiness of the creature consists in rejoicing in God, by which also God is magnified and exalted. –Jonathan Edwards

I really do appreciate the social media shares of my readers, and this is just one way of making it more accessible.

He Makes A Good Point

Though mingled with a strong dose of some other secular sentiments, at least on some points he makes some good points, rather humorously. And if we are not allowed to have fun at the expense of electric cars, well, then, what’s the point?

I’m pretty sure gay trumps black among the morally anointed. You’re expecting a riot, right?

Katecho

Does this mean gay is the new trump, or that trump is the new black?

Rob Steele

Both, yes. Behold my new social media bio: Blacker than thou.

Much more likely that Trump is the new orange!

I haven’t ignored our previous exchange, and it gave me a lot to think about. I agree that my thinking tends to be secular, and I worry about that. I struggle between two opposing traits: impossible idealism and cynical worldliness. Pray for me.

I appreciated your comment that I don’t get emotional when the discussion gets heated! The advantage of having an older brother is learning that if you want to run with big dogs, you can’t be whining and sulking like the puppies on the porch!

Since you started using pull quotes, the RSS feed of your blog has the pull quote text mixed in to the main quote text. So in my feed reader I get to read: So I have finally become convinced that the phrase federal vision is a hurdle that I cannot get over, under or around. The options are therefore limited. I could abandon my actual position and adopt what most people think of when they think federal vision, or I can continue my futile quest of explaining it just one more time, or I could abandon the phrase, and let… Read more »

Another request for the web gurus is to provide a parallel link to each of Doug’s blog posts that only displays his post, without any comment section, or any other sections.

Sometimes I’d like to share one of Doug’s posts, but I don’t want the unsuspecting reader to have to wade through another round of unrelated race baiting from the alt-right peanut gallery, or assertions that Wilson wants a return to Southern slavery from the internet vigilantes.

Thanks for considering this request.

Ditto this. Frankly, Doug’s blog would get shared more and would have a greater impact if he would just turn off the dang comments.

Turning off comments would likely crater the pageviews of this blog.

Katecho

I didn’t request to turn them off, but to provide a parallel link that displays only the article, without commentary.

John

I see Bayly Blog just stop allowing comments. But he is a little more high strung than Doug.

Jane
Member

Yeah, a little. ;-)

John

I didn’t like to comment on that site because unless you were in100% agreement with Bayly it seemed you were a heretic. lol

Thanks for alerting us to that. I’ll see if we can finagle the code to fix that issue.

I don’t share all Voddie’s views but I appreciated his exposition of the table of nations in Exodus 26. (http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=525091133123).

“I have people asking me a lot how I feel about interracial marriage or interracial
adoption. To which, again, I respond: No, I do not believe in interracial marriage.
Absolutely not. I am against interracial marriage. My children may only marry humans.”

Matt Bell

Those pull quotes do absolutely nothing for my blog-reading experience.

But that’s just right now. Soon all electricty will come from solar, wind, water, and … heart. Go Planet!

HAHAHA! I think Leonardo DiCaprio is making a live action Captain Planet movie. I might actually go see it if Al Gore plays the title role.

While I can imagine some obvious improvements that electric cars hold, I agree with the basic idea that their environmental savings are often offset by other environmental costs. That definitely goes for Prius’s and such as well.

The primary problems that industrial technology creates aren’t going to be solved by more industrial technology.

I used to get to work with Voddie a lot. I’m so glad to see his ministry growing, and really pleased y’all are friends.

Doug can still allow comments. But he should add a rule requiring all commenters who attack or criticize him or anyone else to give their real name and email address. That would ensure open, accountable commentary from all sides, and it would get rid of the Alt Right cucks in no time. Because one thing that is overwhelmingly true for Alt Righters, Kinists, white nationalists and other sorts of racialists is that they do not like to reveal their real identities. They claim they want to defend Christian doctrine, but they decline to do so publicly. They are cowards. St.… Read more »

You call us cowards? So brave of you to say what’s fashionable and socially acceptable on the Internet under your real name. I don’t trust people to be honest when they write under their own names, since it increases the temptation to say what won’t get them in trouble or injure their reputations. As the traditionalist Catholic writer Jeff Culbreath put it in an old discussion on race, “The continual need to re-state the obvious is sure evidence one is battling a fever-swamp ideologue.” Certainly. The concerted effort to not notice the obvious is what motivated me to post here… Read more »

I write under my own name. Why don’t you do the same, Harry? The “obvious” for you is genes, genes and more genes. Genetics determines everything. The trail you’re on leads nowhere good. But since you are what Proverbs calls a fool, you’re unable to see that. White supremacism and racialism is a dumping ground for losers. No accounts. Misfits. Dweebs. 40 year old virgins. People who haven’t accomplished much in life and need something, anything to hold on to to give them a sense of solidarity and pride. And the easiest thing to reach for is genetics and physical… Read more »

Harry’s argument: the Cologne Cathedral exists, therefore Muh White Race is the bestest race eva you cuck!!!! My response: if the Cologne Cathedral were something of substance, it would have stopped the slide of Western Civilization into apostasy and sexual perversion. But it hasn’t. Why? Because it’s a symbol, and a gaudy one of that. It’s a symbol of sacramentalist religion that replaces the thing signified with the sign, that privileges circumcised foreskin over circumcised hearts. Privileging appearances over reality is a sign of sloppy thinking, the thinking of the racist Internet dweeb, the Catholic apologist or a Jew in… Read more »

Malachi,

Sorry, I took you to be an Alt Right troll. From your comments, looks like you’re not. Sorry I trolled you hard…these guys get on my last nerve and I’ve been feeling more ornery than usual.

Please accept my apology.

Signed,

Ben Carmack (real name)

Okay, I do sincerely apologize for snapping at our host, for venting my frustration, or for in some way implying that I believe Wilson has no redeeming qualities. Since I believe someone like Milo Yiannopoulos can serve a purpose in God’s kingdom, and I frequently find myself prayerfully interceding for Vox Day himself, it is hardly reasonable for me to attack Wilson.
