Examples of me in the news

A good day!

Saw Veterans for Peace on campus today. Also saw 2 people that were actually shot at Kent State! It was crazy, the FBI/CIA hounded them, guns were planted on people. It sounds like it was REALLY wierd.

D+D questions

Well, after a summer off I'm back to asking the questions.
Here are this weeks.

Is logic necessary for belief in God?
Is scripture the inerrant word of God or the inspired word of God? Why?
How does Jesus’ divinity really work? For example did Jesus lust?
When it comes to politics what are "Christian issues?"
What types of musical instruments are positive during worship?
What are current forms of idolatry?

Also here are some thoughts on the vp debates and this and this.

Longing for THK

Edward's best moment in the debates

Was when he hit Cheney's record, where he voted against, "Meals on Wheels for seniors, Headstart, a Martin Luther King federal holiday and calling for the release of Nelson Mandela."

Brief rant

What do you do when you feel as if you have been slighted? What do you do when you have put years into something and you are still treated like an outsider?
I feel like this too often. Today at the college Dems meeting I was going to hang out with my fellow directors and this guy just steps in front of me and pretty much asks me why I’m still there after the meeting. I felt like saying, "Well, I don’t know who you are, but I’m Director of Events with the College Democrats and I was going to hang out and talk with the other Directors, now get off my ass." Another example, for the most part I am still an outsider at the church here in Eugene that I have attended for the last 2 years! I've taught these people's children about GOD, yet they have no bloody clue who I am.
I don’t know, I sometimes feel that throughout my whole life I have failed to foster relationships to the point that I am just an interesting face in the crowd, not someone that people would actually like to know on more than a forced to be around/work related level, and honestly that is kind of depressing.
I know this whole condition is brought on by, among other things, my own innate bookishness, but I still wish I had relationships nourished to the point that they could spring out with a certain amount of spontaneity.
