Sorrow

Ginger Zee of ABC News tweets-

Terrible news: Toddler Angel Babcock (the only survivor of the family of 5 in Pekin, IN) has been taken off life support.

You’ll remember that the little one was found wandering in the field after the horror.   I echo Zee’s sentiments, it is terrible.

An Empty Apology is Not Enough: Rush Limbaugh Needs to be Off the Air and Back in his Pakistan Cave

Rush Limbaugh didn’t insult a law student at Georgetown once- instead, he smeared her 52 times.  His lame apology secreted away on his website is hardly a sufficient remedy and his sponsors should pull all their advertisements with him and drive him off the air and back to his Taliban-esque cave in Pakistan where he and his ignorance and misogyny belong.

Here are the 52 smears by Rush Limbaugh.

Feb. 29, 2012:

1) “she’s having so much sex she can’t afford her own birth control pills”
2) “they’re having so much sex they can’t afford the birth control pills!”
3) “essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.”
4) “Sandra Fluke. So much sex going on, they can’t afford birth control pills.”

March 1, 2012:

5) “You’d call ’em a slut, a prostitute”
6) “she’s having so much sex”
7) “are having so much sex that they’re going broke”
8) “they want to have sex any time, as many times and as often as they want, with as many partners as they want”
9) “the sexual habits of female law students at Georgetown”
10) “are having so much sex that they’re going broke”
11) “having so much sex that it’s hard to make ends meet”
12) “four out of every ten co-eds are having so much sex that it’s hard to make ends meet”
13) “Now, what does that make her? She wants us to buy her sex.”
14) “to pay for these co-eds to have sex”
15) “she and her co-ed classmates are having sex nearly three times a day for three years straight, apparently these deadbeat boyfriends or random hookups that these babes are encountering here, having sex with nearly three times a day”
16) “Therefore we are paying her to have sex. Therefore we are paying her for having sex.”
17) “Have you ever heard of not having sex so often?”
18) “Ms. Fluke and the rest of you feminazis, here’s the deal: If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. And I’ll tell you what it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”
19) “we want something in return, Ms. Fluke: And that would be the videos of all this sex posted online so we can see what we are getting for our money.”
20) “’If we’re paying for this, it makes these women sluts, prostitutes.’ And what else could it be?”
21) “essentially says that she must be paid to have sex. What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right?”
22) “I’m having sex so damn much, I’m going broke.”
23) “She’s having so much sex that she’s going broke! There’s no question about her virtue.”
24) “having so much sex she’s going broke at Georgetown Law.”
25) “Here’s a woman exercising no self-control. The fact that she wants to have repeated, never-ending, as often as she wants it sex — given.”
26) “She’s having so much sex it’s amazing she can still walk, but she made it up there.”
27) “Maybe they’re sex addicts.”
28) “to pay for her to have sex all the time.”
29) “she wants the rest of us to pay for her sex.”
30) “She wants all the sex that she wants all the time paid for by the rest of us.”
31) “Here this babe goes before Congress and wants thousands of dollars to pay for her sex.”
32) “a woman who is happily presenting herself as an immoral, baseless, no-purpose-to-her-life woman.”
33) “She wants all the sex in the world, whenever she wants it, all the time.”
34) “If this woman wants to have sex ten times a day for three years, fine and dandy.”
35) “to provide women from Georgetown Law unlimited, no-consequences sex.”
36) “so she can have unlimited, no-consequences sex.”
37) “You want to have all the sex you want all day long, no consequences, no responsibility for your behavior”
38) “The woman wants unlimited, no-responsibility, no-consequences sex, and she wants it with contraceptives paid for by us.”

March 2, 2012:

39) “she’s having so much sex, she can’t afford her birth control pills anymore.”
40) “she’s having so much sex, she can’t pay for it — and we should.”
41) “She’s having so much sex, she can’t afford it.”
42) “this, frankly hilarious claim that she’s having so much sex (and her buddies with her) that she can’t afford it.”
43) “And not one person says, ‘Well, did you ever think about maybe backing off the amount of sex that you have?’
44) “Does she have more boyfriends? Ha! They’re lined up around the block.”
45) “It was Sandra Fluke who said that she was having so much sex, she can’t afford it.”
46) “By her own admission, in her own words, Sandra Fluke is having so much sex that she can’t afford it.”
47) “they’re having a lot of sex for which they need a lot of contraception.”
48) “Her sex life is active and she’s having sex so frequently that she can’t afford all the birth control pills that she needs.”
49) “who admits to having so much sex that she can’t afford it anymore.”
50) “she’s having so much sex, she can’t pay for it.”
51) “As frequently as she has sex and to not be pregnant, she’s obviously succeeding in contraception.”
52) “Ms. Fluke, asserts her right to free contraceptive, to handle her sex life — and it’s, by her own admission, quite active.”

He’s clearly fixated on her in a way that can only be described as perverted.

Deaths By State

In the weekend tornadoes:

Total deaths: 37.  By state:

Alabama: 1
Georgia: 1
Indiana: 12
Kentucky: 20
Ohio: 3

Plus the thousands adversely affected of course who lost much and whose suffering shouldn’t be minimized.  A very sad weekend it was.

Total Depravity: The Man Who Beat His Wife in the Judge’s Chambers

A Florida ex-marine who broke his wife’s nose and jaw in a judge’s chambers was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday afternoon.  In April 2011,Paul Gonzalez, 29, became enraged when Judge Ronald Rothschild ordered him to pay child support for the couple’s two young children. He viciously beat his wife, Catie Scott-Gonzalez, in front of the judge at the Broward County Courthouse.

Depraved beast.

Gonzalez was accused of beating his wife, inflicting a fractured jaw, a broken nose, bruised, black eyes, bloody lips and other injuries. At his sentencing Friday, his lawyers filed a motion of downward departure, which essentially meant leniency, partially because, they argued, he suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder after his stint in the military.

Another wicked reprobate unwilling to take responsibility for his evil. It’s not his fault, he was in the military… except for the fact that lots of people in the military never behave that way. His disorder is an evil and perverted heart, not his military service.

From the Archives of Zwingliana: Bullinger on the Last Judgment

Bruce Gordon’s «Welcher nit gloubt der ist schon verdampt »: Heinrich Bullinger and the Spirituality of the Last Judgement was first published in Zwingliana in 2004. It’s another one of the many, many essays in Zwingliana that inform and educate.

The Love of God

With that which we call the love of God, we love God entirely well; we cleave to God as the only, chief, and eternal goodness; in him we do delight ourselves and are well pleased; and frame ourselves to his will and pleasure, having evermore a regard and desire of him that we love.  — Heinrich Bullinger

Girl Scout Cookies as a Sign of the Apocalypse

Boxes

Boxes (Photo credit: mag3737)

I’m old enough to remember when Girl Scouts went door to door selling large boxes of cookies for a few dollars.  Like America, though, Girl Scout Cookies have changed.  They’ve shrunk.  The boxes aren’t half the size of what they once were and the contents of those tiny boxes are statistically insignificant.  And still, the prices are doubled.

Cookies are smaller and harder to find just like America is smaller (in terms of it’s willingness to welcome strangers in) and harder to find (by those huddled masses yearning to breath freely).

More than that, though, like the Scout’s cookies, America has changed and not for the better.  It’s a land where ‘spiritualism’ has replaced spirituality and pseudo-faith has replaced authentic belief supported by practice.  In short, we’re less than we once were, and not more.

What Obama Should Say At AIPAC But Won’t

This is not the United States of Israel, it is the United States of America.  Our foreign policy will not be dictated by one external entity, whether friend or foe.  Our view of Iran will be determined through our own lens and not through the lens of Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, or John Hagee, Christian Zionism, or AIPAC.

SBL Southeast: The End

The final session is this morning and then the drive home will occupy half the day.  This has been an excellent conference and next year when it’s held in Greenville, SC, I’m sure it will be as good.

More anon once I’m safely home.
