Just a reminder:
It is good to always tell the truth with love.
"I was only joking" can contain an intentional barb of hurt.
A partial truth is still a lie.
Public humiliation has destroyed many a friendship.
Avoid malicious activity.
Honor others and extend the gift of dignity.
Be kind tomorrow. Greet each person with a smile.
Bless and do not curse.

Extensive research documentation shows Pakistan as a nation which places women at risk.
One woman. One face. One nation.
What is Pakistan prepared to do?

For that he was put to death. Perhaps the message which is so lacking within Muslim-majority nations will never be fully expressed because of incidents like this one. The Bible uses the word love 714 times. A God of love is a unique aspect of the Christian faith.
For God so loved the world.... What a beautiful thought.

My first novel is beginning to launch. Press kits and books are being sent to power bloggers and the radio media market.
Here is a link from one powerful blogging personality:
The novel is now available on Amazon:
For those who follow the Friday commentary for Daily Times, it will soon make an appearance. There has been a small procedural delay.

War must be entered with a distinct awareness that conflict shatters the souls of men.
War must be maintained with a careful understanding as to how multiple deployments affect both the soldier and his family unit.
War must be ended when goals cannot be achieved and a victory claimed.
Better a simple declaration of the truth than a prolonged and false hope.
War is a season of temporary violence which is allowed to address tyranny and threats to a nation.

In all honesty, I thought it was cleverly done and had a little chuckle when the Son of God said "Jesus" when he slipped.
Christianity does not have a doctrine for the defense of God.
He is "I am" and His state of being is not dependent on my clanging sword. He was, and is and is to come.... nothing changes the fact. My faith, is not threatened by Red Bull.
Christianity allows a bit of spiritual relaxation, otherwise known as "grace".
Let us learn to extend that grace to others.

Jeff sent me his excellent piece this morning. Whilst I merely attacked Rush for word usage, Jeff paints the canvas with the broader stroke.

Keep your tongue in your mouth and your hands on the table.
Is anyone else suffering from gay fatigue? Hardly a television program (NCIS on Tuesday), awards program, or talk show can manage to shy away from a topic which is overwrought with angst and human drama. I want to be entertained. Not manipulated.
I am an American who considers homosexuality a sin. That belief, does not count for hatred. It counts for conviction. I have gay friends. That does not change my conviction. But gay or straight, keep you tongue in your mouth and your hands on the table in public. We all, believe in decency.
