I was going to be ...

packing my clothes to leave at the crack of dawn for GA tomorrow. But I'm not. At the last minute (yesterday) I decided that I had bit off way, way more than I could chew, given the fact that I'm closing on my condo in 2 weeks. Something had to give, and it was either my sanity, or GA. I chose GA.

Rep. Hostettler

This guy is completely out there. He thinks that there is a "mythical wall separation (sic) between church and state that's been erected by the courts" and that "Democrats can't help denigrating and demonizing Christians." Ick.

Pre and Post test?

I came across this quiz (Which Theologian are you?) from Progressive Protestant. First, I had to look up 'eschatology.' Anyway, I guessed and fuzzed my way through, it scores me as 80% in line with Paul Tillich: "Paul Tillich sought to express Christian truth in an existentialist way.
