Another Day’s Work

 

The French network Canal Plus was here at the house Sunday, taping a segment for French TV on Chelsea Clinton.  It is a fascinating story of an extraordinary young lady.  Here is a link to the CBS Evening News segment I did on the same subject.

Jenna Bush gets married ! Well, since I am passing out links, journalists checking in should make sure they check out this reference site that I edit.  The Jenna Bush wedding is now only days away.

Religious Freedom is the issue discussed all week on stations and religious networks across the country.  I am helping with a site that defends them all, and includes responses to the reprehensible anti-Catholicism and anti-Semitism that have resurfaced.  Check out…

    Hey, Doug. Interesting mix of ideas with the post.

    All the best with the work related to the wedding. In regard to religious freedom, as a theologian it is of course important to me, and your cause seems worthy. There are discussions with churches here in Canada if eventually reasonably presented conservative type Christian views will be opposed by the state if it attempts to appease certain groups. I have no desire to intellectually attack anyone, but only am required to present an objective, reasonable and scholarly analysis of differing world-views, including religious ones. I expect to be reviewed in the same manner. As a Reformed Christian, if I am reviewing material from, or in dialogue with, Roman Catholics, Jewish persons, and Latter-Day Saints, for example, this should be done with respect and an open-mind.

    My pastor in Vancouver has stated previously that since the federal government has brought in same-sex marriage legislation, some ministers locally have been pressured to perform homosexual marriages by officials. If traditional Biblically focused churches are not protected from performing same-sex marriages as they are supposed to be with BILL C-38: THE CIVIL MARRIAGE ACT C. Religious Marriage (Clause 3), then churches here may need to consider performing religious marriage ceremonies only, allowing the state to perform the actual legal marriages.

    From 2004:

    Nice job on the tv interview about Chelsea, Doug! Glad to see you got a pix of the books in there, too.

    We certainly do live in an era of lowered expectations, don’t we?

    What exactly has Chelsea Clinton done to merit the label of “extraordinary”?
