Brent of Unscrewing the Inscrutable has had a couple of entries that I thought were worthy of pointing out.
The first one is called Lying for Jesus in which Brent tells us of hearing from a lying conman who finally got around to reading Brent’s entry calling him a lying conman from awhile back. The original entry talks about a man named Robert Frey a supposedly patriotic Christian who’s pissed off about the whole Ten Commandments thing that took place in Georgia and is out to bring down that evil atheistic organization known as the ACLU by selling fellow patriotic Christians cheaply produced little signs with the Decalogue printed on them to display in their front yards. The supposed “logic” being that the ACLU will eventually go bankrupt trying to sue everyone who has a little cheap-assed sign with the Ten Commandments in their front yard. There’s just one little problem with this plan: the ACLU doesn’t give a rat’s ass about Decalogues posted on private property, as well they shouldn’t, which means Frey is just out to make a buck off of his fellow Christians through deceptive practices. Brent basically called Mr. Frey a conman (which he is) and Frey got a little pissed about it and left a hilariously stupid comment implying, among other things, that Brent could be in for a libel lawsuit. Frey shows up again in a response to this latest entry and proceeds to demonstrate his rather slimy nature some more.
The other entry that caught my eye was his rather excellent roundup of a debate on Christianity that got started by the folks at The Illinois Leader newspaper when they asked the question: “Will Christ disappear from Christmas this year?” It must have taken a bit of dedication to keep up with the back and forth articles that resulted from this as I only remember stumbling across one or two links myself. Brent provides the links to them all in one handy-dandy spot.
I try to check in on Brent every day at this point, but I’ve not been leaving myself enough time to chime in on some of his entries like I want to so I’ll have to make more time for that soon. He’s got some good stuff over there, though, so I wanted to point a couple of them out and encourage him to keep up the good work.
