Flotsam & Jetsam (11/19)

Ayn Rand Didn’t Understand Capitalism – Or altruism. Or Christianity. Or reality. If you think she did, you need to read this article by Joe Carter.

If You Shop on Thanksgiving… – Another great piece by Matt Walsh: “Thanksgiving let out a desperate cry as Black Friday devoured its soul, but we barely noticed. It’s hard to hear anything when you’re wrestling 4,000 other people for buy one get one free cargo shorts at Old Navy.”

Getting Our Attention – “Maybe the hilariously un-planned things, the things that should by logic have never happened at all… Maybe those are God’s way of snapping in our face, waking us up.”

The Real Truth about ‘Boring’ Men and the Women Who Live with Them – This is just absolutely beautiful.

Noah (Official Trailer #1) – Our first look at Darren Aronofsky’s latest project. Frankly, I’m not sure what to think yet. Part of me is pleasantly surprised; the rest of me is trying to remember the last time Hollywood and the Bible actually got along. And I’m drawing a blank.

Not Just About Getting the Door Open – Because it’s not a question of pragmatics.

Thus Spake Obama – Only Steyn could write such a funny piece about a not-so-funny business: “The most telling line, the one that encapsulates the gulf between the boundless fantasies of the faculty-lounge utopian and the messiness of reality, was this: ‘What we’re also discovering is that insurance is complicated to buy.’ Gee, thanks for sharing, genius. Maybe you should have thought of that before you governmentalized one-sixth of the economy.”

“Christian literature comes from Christian novelists & dramatists – not from the bench of bishops… trying to write plays.” – C.S. Lewis
