What Says ‘America’ Like Another Shooting, At A Synagogue, on the Last Day of Passover?

Aren’t you tired of this yet?  Nope?  Of course not.  And that’s why America is finished.

“So, Jeremiah, do not pray for these people. Do not cry out to me or petition me on their behalf. Do not plead with me to save them. For I will not listen to them when they call out to me for help when disaster strikes them.” Jer 11:14

Why Do People Attend Large Churches?

Because they don’t want their lives as Christians to be noticed; because they don’t wish to be held accountable as disciples; and because they have no interest in being committed.  They are spectator Christians and desire to be nothing besides that.

Read the Interview with John Barton in the Church Times

It’s wonderful.

BY ITS publication date, John Barton’s A History of the Bible: The book and its faiths was already in its third printing, such was the volume of pre-orders. It was a bestseller even before it hit the bookshops, sped on its way by enthusiastic reviews (Books, 5 April). The Sunday Timesreviewer reported that it was the first book that he had ever read that made it seem possible that the Bible might “chime once more in a sceptical age”.

This is Professor Barton’s first “trade book”, the culmination of a lifetime’s thinking about the Bible. Having taught in Oxford for more than 40 years, holding the post of Oriel-Laing Professor for 20 of those, and retiring four years ago, he was the obvious choice for such an ambitious project.

Etc.

The *Ivy League* Needs to be Renamed the *Bribe-Me League*

We’re learning more about the college admissions cheating scandal.

A family from China paid Rick Singer, the mastermind behind the scheme, more than $1 Million to get their daughter into Yale. Sherry Guo, who attended high school in California was accepted at Yale after Singer paid a $400,000 bribe to former Yale soccer coach Rudy Meredith.

An attorney for Guo’s family argues the family was so unfamiliar with how people apply to schools in the U.S. They didn’t realize Singer’s counseling was illegal.

Bribe them in, bribe them in, bribe them in from the fields of sin….

It’s that Time of Year: The College Bookstore Sellback Scam

This pretty much sums up what college bookstores do to students: they sell expensive required textbooks.  Those textbooks aren’t the sort of thing anyone would want to keep.  The bookstore buys them back for a pittance.  Then the bookstore sells them as used for hundreds of percent markup.  It’s theft, pure and simple.
