I am consistently amazed at the level of intellectual debate here in the blogosphere. To wit:

"Yes, I'd be quite interested to hear your thoughts on these things - particularly your lack of willingness to fight for your country. But I won't hold my breath waiting for a reply; it's probably hard for you to give one with your thumb in your mouth." (from a commentor on Vox Popoli)

This is a sample of what poses as thoughtful discourse. Now Vox Day, the author of the blog, IS intellectually formidable, politically astute, and a hoot, to boot. The castigation he receives in others' blogs, as well as in the Hell-o-Scan comments section of his site, is often of the calibre quoted. Bottom line: if one cannot refute another's arguments...BLUSTER.

Cheap, cheap, cheap.

Often the essentially "christian" sites display the agape love evidenced by the massacre of Luther's "followers" by the provoked RCs. Oh, yeah! Jesus said "They'll know you are my disciples because you SCREAM at one another."

This reminds me of another little goodie: a friend of mine proudly displayed his new bumper sticker. It reads

"Jesus Loves You.
(everyone else thinks
you're an a***ole!)"

O........K. Let's use the the Son of God to give the finger to the world. Gotta love that.

Come on, people; let ALL things be done to build one another up.

1 Corinthians 16:14, "Let all your things be done with charity (agape love)."
1 Peter 4:8, "And above all things have fervent charity (agape love) among yourselves: for charity (agape love) shall cover the multitude of sins."

It may not be as sexy as vituperative debate,
but it makes our Father happy.
