They will know us by our love for one another: Here in Georgia two Christian schools played football last Friday. Loganville Christian Academy was ahead of Northside Christian Academy 33-0 in the first half when one of the players on the losing team ripped off the helmet of his opponent and began bashing him over the head with it. Criminal charges could be filed. The game was stopped at that point and the head basher’s team forfeited to the head bashee’s team. Reminds me of church softball leagues. Tsk. Tsk.
Alas, who to vote for? The wonderful family man, the Mormon, the submissive evangelical wife, the libertarian with his nose perpetually out-of-joint, the thrice married ex-SBCer, the fiery former pizza magnate who would excise mosques, the drawling Texan who knows how to corral the evangelical vote, the three-fourths Italian one-fourth Irish Pennsylvania Catholic, or the other Mormon who attended Lutheran school whose wife was raised Episcopalian, whose kids went to Catholic school who adopted a girl from India who has a Hindu tradition. We will let the crowd shake down on its own.
Georgia lost to Boise State. It wasn’t close. I’d feel sorry for head coach Marc Richt who is under some pressure but I don’t believe I am obligated to feel sorry for anyone making $3 million a year. I don’t even feel sorry for the beleaguered defensive coach who still makes about as much as the college president.
NASA has an astronaut shortage. Plodder will be happy to recommend some of my calvinist ministerial colleagues who already have experience in deep space.
