Have yet to find a philosophical somewhere I am content to call home. The closest I get to a creed these days is a quote by John Green. "Whether I believe in God isn’t really relevant. I do believe however tenuously in Mercy" Due to a lot of personal reasons encountered along this journey, I have mostly stepped away from writing for now. Still, sometimes something stirs me and I need space to hash out my thoughts. So welcome to my little space along the journey.

Jerry Falwell Is Dead - Sigh!!!
I have been called cold hearted and rude for the responses I have made to several people today about Jerry Falwell's death. However I stand by the fact that he was a self serving politico who exploited Christianity for his own financial and political gain. I am GLAD he will no longer be disgracing the name of Christ with his self serving rhetoric.

I told my wife last night that I felt he single-handily did more damage to a "Christian View" of politics than anyone else. I'm not sure we can ever recover from the damage he and his followers have done and continue to do.
Sad to hear this from a Christian. Nevermind that thoundsands of lives he touched. I'm not his biggest fan, I'm not even a fan, but he was a man and he was a "Christian" as am I. I'll give him up to the Lord and let he make the judgement...
Recently I've meet a handfull of people that knew him personally and speak nothing but hard work and dedication of the man. How he influanced hundreds of thousands... But here we have two Christians focusing on everything he did wrong. Intresting...
