Kelly Boggs of Baptist Press says Lay those experts end-to-end! It’s tempting, some days. Especially in election season.

A kid got sent home from school in New Jersey for wearing a Jesus costume for Halloween. He was told he had to lose the beard and the crown of thorns… The boy has a Catholic mother and a Jewish father and recently celebrated his Bar Mitzvah, and is studying Jesus as a historical and religious figure, his mother says… (hat tip: Alliance Alert)

On the upside, an AWANA club in Wisconsin finally gets to meet on school grounds without paying a fee. Non-religious clubs have been able to use the facilities for free, and so Christian lawyers stepped in to request equal treatment for the church club. The school district saw its way clear to accommodate them.

Do you use the phrase “my brother’s keeper.” Perhaps it’s time to remember the difference between brothers and keepers.

  1. You mentioned the election season, although it was with a note of distaste. I’m worried about a growing movement among Christians to not vote. I don’t want to tell you who to vote for, but if all Christians decide not to vote, who will be choosing our leaders? Read my post here http://themasterstable.wordpress.com/2008/11/01/on-christians-and-voting/ and help spread the word. Christians need to vote!

  2. Dear Mr. Bunch, Oops. Sorry. Didn’t mean to come across like that. At my other blogs (Ladies for Life, and Suitable for Mixed Company) I’ve been urging Christians to vote. I’m pleased to report that in the Bloggityville neighborhoods I tend to hang around in, most of the Christians have decided that abortion is the leading moral issue of our day and we must fight it at the ballot box as well as in other ways.
