    this was hidden within the Acts 29 article on Penn State–statistics re: ministers.
    Quite alarming:

    Thanks for the links, Brian!

    The MMA article was interesting. I enjoy watching it more than boxing. It is a brutal sport but from what I understand it is far safer than professional boxing which I’m thinking many MMA haters watch without a problem.

    Boxing for me can be a travesty as so many fights that go to the judges are routinely botched. The recent Pacquaio fight is a perfect example. The sport needs him to fight Mayweather and now it may very well happen. I don’t see this in MMA.

    As far as Driscoll his comments seem bizarre to me. Just don’t tell him I carry a man purse! 🙂

    Aside from having a wife, Driscoll would not date a woman who could easily beat him up! 🙂

    Elephant Room…Grrr. They’re offering a special price right now of $79. At a later date, it will become $99. I just don’t get it.

    Happy Thanksgiving BrianD and all my blog friends. God bless you!

    The name “Elephant Room” just oozes with arrogance. It yells, “Look at me!”

    I think this is a venture that seeks only to draw attention to itself and its elephant participants. It does nothing for the Gospel.

    Hey all! Just a quick hello…glad to see Em and the other familiar names. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving….Brian, I’m going to read through the links while sitting around the airport!
