Doctor Roy, No, I think the most amoral post winner is you. The quote speaks of such things as honor, duty, sacrifice, justice, etc. Which you somehow regard as being amoral (I bet you really mean immoral). This is why we put adults in charge of important things. We leave the kids in the playground. Enjoy your playtime in the sandbox. Men like Chris Kyle will keep you safe.

While I wholeheartedly agree with the premise and challenges laid out by the author I must point out a glaring inconsistency in her article. She (rightfully) claims, ", you believe you could “get more out of it” if you used a devotional. So you end up reading what somebody else said about the Bible instead of actually reading it for yourself." But, by quoting a translation such as The Message, which is NOT God's Word, but a wholly made up interpretation of it, you are doing precisely what you say not to do. Compare the words of The Message to that of any essentially literal translation (ESV, KJV, NASB, etc) and you will be hard pressed to see any of what God actually wrote. The Message has so altered the actual text as to make it unrecognizable as God's Word. We don't need to edit or simplify or dumb down His eternal Word. His Truth stands on its own merit and we would do well to honor it by not changing it to suit our need.

Darby, Darby, Darby...(sigh) Broad brush much?
I have a good friend who is a Hollywood insider. He tells me that the current crop of Hollywood elites publically complain that "Selma" is being snubbed by not getting the Oscar nominations it deserves. But privately, they admit its not a very good picture and doesn't deserve any nominations at all.
Grant, Except there won't be any "best White" categories. After all, there's decades of discrimination to make up for. Whites have already received enough awards. Time for the brothers to get theirs.
Dr Z, I've always felt that anyone who thinks they know what anyone else should be paid is an arrogant moron.
Then get another job. Why should we artificially inflate the price of anything so that a select few are protected while the rest are forced to pay the higher price? This is the essence of government market interference. If only we could just leave the market alone and let the law of supply and demand work... But that would put the politicians 'out of business' - literally.

And guess who will claim credit for the rebounding economy? I can see it now - Obama shamelessly trumpeting his "brilliant economic recovery plan" that has restored America to its rightful place as the world leader. While all the time he has been working overtime to slap America down and make us into another European failed economy. These next two years are gonna be long ones...
