From the fever swamps of the Left

April 02nd, 2012 by Vader

I keep missing the priesthood meetings where they hand out the secret Mormon lapel bugs.

Of course, my lapels are hidden under half a centimeter of black plastic armor, so it wouldn’t do any good anyway.

As Prez, Mitt Romney would appoint….

February 01st, 2012 by Bookslinger

I think it’s now time to play the “Mitt Romney would/should/could appoint (insert well-known Mormon here) as _____” game.

GA’s and famous Mormons are fair game.    Creating a new position is also allowed.

As in:  Romney would appoint Deiter F. Uchtdorf as head of the FAA, Jeffrey Holland as head of Dept of Education.

What should be a pet-cause for Ann Romney?  (Michelle Obama’s is diet/weight-loss, Laura Bush’s was education, Nancy Reagan’s was Say No to Drugs.)

I nominate Family Home Evening to be Ann Romney’s cause.

(Various ideas can be found/stolen from a “Mitt Romney is so Mormon…” meme at various places on the net. A list of the best is here.)

The Resurrection of Spock, the Looting Lepers of Mars

September 02nd, 2011 by Adam G.

John C. Wright hilariously essays to write about the supposed opposition between religion and science, and the nature of science fiction. His definition of science fiction is close to the true one, which is that science fiction is the imaginative fiction of the myths of modernity. (more…)

Diabolic Fiction

May 06th, 2011 by Adam G.

As you know, I’m interested in TF (theo-fiction), stories like C.S. Lewis’ The Great Divorce that take the angels and devils of the old folk tales as their properties just as fantasy takes the fairies and dwarfs. First Things has just put up a a very interesting TF discussion about devils in fiction. (more…)
