I don’t like change. Most of the time. I like reliable dependability.
Logos Bible Software is now known as Faithlife Corporation, with new signs going up on its downtown buildings in the coming weeks. The company remains under the same ownership.
CEO Bob Pritchett said in a blog post that the name change better reflects where the company is going. While Faithlife continues to produce software products, it has expanded into many other areas, including computer apps, websites and other digital content.
The Logos name will continue on its flagship product and can still be found at Logos.com. Users of the Logos product can find a variety of options to improve the study of the Bible, including the original text in Greek or Hebrew, other translations, timelines as well as photos and maps of historical sites.
Ok, fine. Whatever. I’m sure Joel Watts is behind this somehow. Bloody Universalist.
Hollywood has gone insane. It sees $$$$ in the ‘Christian’ market so it’s pimping the Bible for all they can squeeze out of it… gag. Dear Lord, make it stop.

You have to watch this, it’s hilarious. I was watching as it happened this morning and they’ve posted a video of the fun (for me anyway- not so much for the local anchors who are, I have to tell you, the best).
I can’t stop watching it.
Anonymous internet commentators are the worst of humanity, hiding and spewing their worthless bile whilst doing grave harm to others. It’s time for websites to disallow their comments and it’s time for these trolls to own their words or keep silent.
Look what the vile miscreants attempted to do to Larry Schiffman (I’m looking at you, Raphael Golb). And look at what these worthless vermin have done to Robin Williams’ daughter:
Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda has been forced to abandon social media after being targeted by trolls in the wake of her father’s death. Miss Williams, 25, used Twitter to post a heartfelt tribute to her father, posting a quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s “The Little Prince,” and saying: “I love you. I miss you. I’ll try to keep looking up.” She received many messages of support and thanked people “from the bottom of my heart” for generous donations in memory of her father to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
But amid the flood of tributes there were also highly offensive posts in return. Miss Williams said she had been left “shaking,” adding later: “I’m sorry. I should’ve risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye.”
From the dilettantes like Little Honey Tee Tee to Raphael Golb to the trolls who roam the halls of the web, they are, the lot of them, cowards. And the cure for this plague is to simply make it impossible for anonymous or pseudonymous comments to be posted, anywhere, in any forum, on any website, on any blog, on any news-site, and on any social media.
Anon/pseudon accounts should be banned forthwith.
A new teacher in Wagoner, Oklahoma, was arrested on her first day after she showed up at the school both drunk and without pants. Hill was interviewed by police and admitted she’d been drinking. A search of her car turned up an empty cup that reportedly smelled of vodka.

For some reason I don’t imagine Lorie Hill will be ‘teacher of the year’. Now if she lived in Texas, it would be another matter altogether.
