Well, I am back from the Hillsong conference where they tried to teach me that to be a leader I have to go through a lot of crap and come out the better for it. Deep stuff eh... Don't get me wrong, it was a great conference and I got a lot out of it, just maybe not what they intended me to get....
Bill Muehlenberg has an article on Online Opinion about the recent and expected debacle on Australia's Big Brother series. As expected, most comments use irrational responses such as "keep your morals off our freedoms" (Why are they pushing that morality on Bill's freedoms?) and "one doesn't have to view it" (One doesn't have to view any sort of depravity on TV, does that mean we should allow fights to the death or rapes from the third world on our TV's)
John Sarfati takes an emailer to task for their comments about Creation Science. Reading the emails is an interesting task in checking out whether the emailer uses the same standards for their email that they expect from AIG.
