New Blog

I have been posting a number of off topic posts in sanctus dialogus, so I have decided to create another blog, nerDad. That blog will focus more on my everyday observations as a father and a nerd. I want this blog to focus on its own topics, theology and the church, without distraction. I don't think there should be a separation of secular and non-secular life, but I wouldn't want a preacher to get up on the pulpit to weigh the pro's and con's of Windows Vista for instance.

Elections: The Abortion Topic

While I think religion and politics should have restricted interaction, you would have problems like voting on canons and other such nonsense. I do however think that religion should be a moral compass in voting, lawmaking, and other political/government activities. I find the idea of separation of church and state amusing. That is not written into the Constitution or amended. Many of our founding fathers were Episcopalian. George Washington, our first president, was an deacon at his church. Our laws and government draws a great deal from the church and biblical laws. However, I digress. I saw this interview on a blog and was stunned. Watch it for yourself before you read on.

What does pay grade have anything to do with it? Obviously, he means someone higher up should decide that. What is that supposed to mean? He's running for the presidency a.k.a. "the leader of the free world." Who could he possibly be referring to? The Pope? God? Obviously from his voting history, he is not pro-life, so it couldn't be those two. It's poorly played dodge.
