This 'n' That

Well, you know the privilege of "casual Friday" needs to be revoked when people start showing up to the office in jean shorts. At least, that's what I witnessed last Friday, it remains to be seen what today will bring. On another note, here's your week in review (kind of):
  • Call me crazy, but I tend to define "preventive care" as something that prevents an actual illness or disease. I never really thought of a baby as a disease, but I guess our government thinks differently because, as of 2013, insurance companies must cover birth control for free! You know what that means...you and I will be paying higher premiums in order to help selfish, irresponsible women kill their babies. Oh, and don't overlook the less-reported fact that this includes the "morning after" pill, which can hardly be defined as preventive.
  • Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs has been convicted of child assault. Jeffs remained silent for most of the proceedings, except for a moment when he read aloud to the judge a threatening letter that he claimed was from God.
  • Last night, the Cubs completed a 4-game sweep of the Pirates (hooray!), leaving them with their first 5-game winning streak of the season. Surely this is a sign of the End Times!
  • I haven't mentioned Governor Perry's upcoming prayer event, "The Response," but since it's tomorrow, I thought I should bring it up. Brannon Howse has been speaking against this thing for weeks now, and rightly so. It is not a Christian event, as it is being led by leaders of the New Apostolic Reformation and the IHOP movement. So before you go ga-ga over something just because it's claiming the name of "Christian," make sure you know what kind of Christianity it's espousing.
How do you know that you believe?
