  • This is the first I’ve heard of the bitcoin.
  • The American Psychiatric Association has now classified pedophilia as a sexual orientation. Wait, maybe they didn’t. At least not yet. There’s little doubt that it will come eventually.
  • Speaking of sexual perversion and immorality; polyamory no doubt will be the next thing to be mainstreamed.
  • It’s probably going to cost some serious cash for Steven Furtick to furnish his new house, so why not think about grabbing a few copies of his newly-released Sun Stand Still devotional to help him out?

  • Here’s your weekly dose of adorable.
  • Rachel Miller explains why she doesn’t celebrate Halloween.

  • Speaking of the Reformation, what are some of the differences between Roman Catholic theology and the gospel?
  • Sorry, lady, but you weren’t talking to God.
  • Want to pack your child’s own lunch for school? You may need to send along a doctor’s note.
  • I’m not sure Mark Batterson understands the meaning of the word ‘incarnation.’ Kinda makes you wonder how he’s sold so many books, doesn’t it?
