After several weeks on the sidelines due to a disrupted schedule, I finally remembered to plug and post the weekly Christian Carnival. Daddypundit hosts carnival number LXXX this week.
As you’d expect, a number of brethren try to make sense of the London bombings. (My wife and I have a slightly different–conspiratorial–take on the matter). Angry in the Great White North posts an incredible story about an op-ed that recently aired on state-funded radio:
“We could also help the general cause of religious freedom by introducing a code of moral practice for religions,” [retired professor Bob Ferguson] said. “They will never achieve unity so why not try for compatibility? Can’t religious leaders agree to adjust doctrine so all religions can operate within the code?”
Sure, Bob. All this talk about “the word of God” is just smoke to fool true believers into blind obedience.
Our podcast interview with Irish author Patrick Heron about his new book The Nephilim and the Pyramid of the Apocalypse was my entry this week. If you have an hour, take a listen (8.2MB mp3 file). Patrick is a hoot, and he’s promised to buy the Guiness when Sharon and I finally get around to visiting the Emerald Isle.
He was only kidding when he said the statues of the Egyptian fertility god really represented prehistoric Irishmen.
