Around the Web and Blogosphere (9/15/08)

Well I am sure glad the Church of England feels a need to apologize to Darwin. In the article: Church of England to apologise to Darwin, it says that “Senior church officials will post the apology in the form of an article written by the Reverend Dr Malcolm Brown on the church's website.” Dr. Brown also said “there was nothing incompatible between Darwin's scientific theories and Christian teaching.” Hmm, I wonder what bible he is reading, probably the one that many in the church read today, the one containing simply ideas, opinions and suggestions from God. When scripture is minimized to the whims of the world statements such Mr. Brown’s are the only direction one can go.

Joel McDurmon at American Vision has a good post on the “Fannie Mae” and “Freddie Mac” issues. Not only is the state going to take over it does so at the expense of the people. Both in the mortgages it acquires and funding through taxes it uses to acquire those mortgages. I understand the crisis that would come if all of the bad loans were foreclosed on but this whole issue reveals that there is little responsibility taken by banks for offering bad loans and people for taking them. In the end it is those that wisely stayed away from the unwise loans who pay the price.

Scott Brown links to an article that reveals a feminists view of the Republican VP candidates type of feminism. It is insightful to read the article. Here is a quote from the Salon article:

“Conservative though she may be, I felt that Palin represented an explosion of a brand new style of muscular American feminism. At her startling debut on that day, she was combining male and female qualities in ways that I have never seen before. And she was somehow able to seem simultaneously reassuringly traditional and gung-ho futurist. In terms of redefining the persona for female authority and leadership, Palin has made the biggest step forward in feminism since Madonna channeled the dominatrix persona of high-glam Marlene Dietrich and rammed pro-sex, pro-beauty feminism down the throats of the prissy, victim-mongering, philistine feminist establishment.”
