Vic Toews - You Were Warned: Identity of Vic Toews' Mistress, Stacey Mee...

I don't have much of an opinion on this bill, but it concerns me that a group like this can have so much power to make demands of our government. Perhaps Anonymous will remain benign and concerned for the good of humanity, but what happens when an anarchist group pulls something like this. What do you think PFCers? Should the Vic Toews and the Conservative party bow to this kind of blackmailing?

Nitpicking Terminology

I often read in the works of different apologists (specifically American ones for some reason) that what they are defending is a "biblical worldview". I would like to submit that this is a bad label to use. Christian apologists are giving a defense of a Christian worldview, not a biblical worldview. A biblical worldview comes with an Ancient Near Eastern worldview and is often quite different than what apologists espouse. For the sake of honesty it would be best to defend a Christian worldview. We are Christians of the 21st century, we have over 2000 years of church history behind us, shaping our beliefs, and we readily reinterpret biblical teaching in our modern cultural context. It is time we put our misguided biblolatry behind us and confess in honesty and humility our Christian convictions.

And Philosophy

Interesting books here, really.

Literature, the Arts, and Apologetics

Literature, the Arts, and Apologetics are a nice combination.  For more on this topic, listen to Holly Ordway.
