Flotsam & Jetsam (9/13)

Guys, It Matters Whom You Marry, Too – The follow-up to this post. Both are well-worth your time.

Free Speech is Free Speech is Free Speech – Mark Steyn says, “The mob of ‘Islamic rage boys’ gets mad about all kinds of stuff — cartoons, dogs, teddy bears. You can never make a long enough list to satisfy them. So you might as well tell them you’re not going to start.”

How to Think About the Embassy Violence – Kevin DeYoung asks a very pertinent question: “Will peoples who believe in free speech and freedom of religion sacrifice both when faced with the angry shouts and gunfire of those who don’t?”

Six Myths of American History – Excellent.

My Chains Fell Off – “I know God is sovereign over every second of my life including the years of gospel ignorance. Perhaps, those lean times were necessary for me to appreciate how good the good news really is.”

John Calvin and Michael Servetus – So what really happened between those two? Probably not what you’ve been told. (HT Truthinator)

iPhone 5 and Our Fascination with Newness – “Bigger screen. Better camera. Faster processor. We’re fascinated with newness. We love improving our gadgets. There is much common grace in a new iPhone — an image-of-God creativity to appreciate. And a danger to beware.”

Do You Love Jesus or Your Robust Theology? – Good stuff to consider.

The Chocolate Milk Test – Love it. Wilson writes, “I sometimes describe the mentality of soft despotism that surrounds us on every hand as the ‘free chocolate milk for everybody’ mindset. So let this be your litmus test. Do I have a right to buy chocolate milk if I want? Or is someone else being obligated to buy me a chocolate milk whenever I want?”

A Little of This, A Little of That – And a whole lot of awesome.

Leaky Canons and Moralizing Gospel Misfires: An Analogy – Dan Phillips is one of my favorite bloggers. Here’s another reason why.

“Religious liberty might be supposed to mean that everybody is free to discuss religion. In practice it means that hardly anybody is allowed to mention it.” – G.K. Chesterton
