JK Rowling is wrong: Dumbledore is not Gay… or, Does not Promote Tolerance

I blogged on this last night but still have thoughts on the matter. Rowling indicated that her series were one long conversation about tolerance and as I skim the blogs I wonder if this is what she had in mind, a top ten list of ‘signs’ that Dumbledore was gay.The joke of course is that …

Dumbledore is Gay? What is a Christian to do with Harry Potter?

Yesterday I was given this link here with a discussion by Rowling about the Christian elements in her books. Today I was given this link here with Rowling talking about Dumbledore being gay. I quote: She was asked by one young fan whether Dumbledore finds “true love.” “Dumbledore is gay,” the author responded to gasps …

A Response to Herr Professor Regarding Evolution and Racism, and Watson

Herr Professor, writing here, wants to take me to task for some of the things that I said in this post, here. I thank the gentleman for taking the time to read my entry though as I read his I did begin to doubt that he really did read mine. Besides the standard skeptical psychoanalysis …

Dr. Watson, I presume?

Unlike Dr. Livingstone of lore, we can expect that if Dr. James Watson- of DNA and Francis Crick fame- were to go evangelizing in Africa today, he’d not fare very well. In an article from the Independent I read: “Dr Watson said he was “inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social …

Fantasy Role Playing Games

I wrote the following for another blog but thought it would be appropriate here.  It was inspired by the fact that I have a role playing game built around my book series, which you can find here. ——————————- What is about fantasy role playing games that appeal to so many people? Never mind the games- …

Humane Society Liberals Turn Tables on Liberal ‘pro-choice’ Argument Applied to Death Row Dogs

I was minding my own business this morning just getting my kids ready for school when something on ABC News about dogs on death row came on.  I wasn’t really paying attention until suddenly I heard some statements that I had normally heard applied to unborn human babies.  I tracked down the corresponding article at …

Dan Barker and Infidel Radio

I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard that Dan Barker over at the Freedom from Religion Foundation was going to be on liberal radio network Air America.  I followed up by finding this article at Foxnews.  The writer goofs by saying that Barker and his wife head up the Freedom OF Religion rather than …

Antony Flew Under Attack by Atheists

This has been the case for awhile, now, but atheists all over are not giving Flew his due.  This site has a great list of taunts. He’s losing/lost his mind. He’s in it for the money. He’s afraid of death. Etc. If this is not ad hominem, I don’t know what is.  If the challenge …

Ramzi Yousef a Christian?

That is the claim in this article, though it is doubted. I’ve been paying attention to Ramzi Yousef after I discovered his Iraqi connections.  Yousef was the master mind behind the first WTC bombing and a relative of KSM who planned the second one.  (You see the import of the Iraq connection, now, I suppose.)   …

On a more masculine heaven

C.S. Lewis wrote, There is no need to be worried by facetious people who try to make the Christian hope of   heaven   ridiculous by saying they do not want   to spend eternity playing harps.     The answer to such people is that if they cannot understand books written for grown-ups, they should not talk about them. …

Apologetics Bulletin Inserts for Churches Concept

  The idea to produce bulletin inserts with apologetic content goes back several years with me.  I had to set the idea aside because of pressing financial concerns.   My beloved wife has always insisted that it is one of my better ideas, so she prompted me to re-consider.  Some friends ratified her view.  Also, increasing …

A Refutation of Antony Flew’s “Gardener Parable.”

With the upcoming release of Antony Flew’s book documenting his abandonment of atheism and explanation of where he currently stands, There Is a God: How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind, I thought it would be fun to trot out some of my own material responding to Antony Flew’s arguments when he was …

A review of my book, “Fidelis” by Jean Heimann at Catholic Fire

Jean Heimann at her Catholic Fire blog posted a review of my book, Fidelis, and I have to say that I think she did a good job. Ok, maybe I’d say that anyone who likes my book and writes a favorable review did a good job. But who could possibly dislike my book? 😉 To …
