Arthur retaliates for me asking HIM the question by querying:
Should VR murder be banned? VR being virtual reality
I’ve been conflicted about, not just this most recent iteration of faux violence, but even decades ago, going back to the Vietnam war. It was believed by some Read the rest of this entry »
More questions from Arthur:
Do you personally chafe at the name “Liberal Christianity”, or do you see the name as a necessary counter-balance to the assumption that all Christians (Protestants in particular) are conservatives?
Interesting that after you asked the question, someone linked to Social Justice Is a Christian Tradition — Not a Liberal Agenda.

About a year ago (and probably early this year), many political commentators were saying that President Obama would be regarded as “one of the most consequential presidents in US history”. Given that the Orange Guy and his Republican Congress are poised to undo everything President Obama accomplished over the past 8 years (and pretty much every good thing done by all presidents, Republican and Democratic, over the past several decades…), do you think the pundits’ assessment is now laughable? Or, will it be that Obama’s image will soar Read the rest of this entry »
