All Souls & Sandy

Today is All Soul's Day and according to the Anglican Communion, "is a twin feast of All Saints's Day. It has been observed in the Eastern Church from very early times and was introduced into Western Europe in the tenth century. The sixteenth-century English Reformers cut this festival out of the church year because they did not like to distinguish between "all saints" and "all souls." The New Testament makes no such distinction but, rather, refers to all Christians as saints, stressing the fact that salvation is a gift from God and that none of us earns a special place in his kingdom by our good deeds.

“Go easy on us,” another journalist tells Kent. “Times are changing, and print is a dying medium.”

According to the comic’s author, Scott Lobdell, Kent will likely start a blog. “I don’t think he’s going to be filling out an application anywhere,” Lobdell says. “He is more likely to start the next Huffington Post or the next Drudge...

"... the awesomely gifted Alisha DeFreitas... tells her story of  her brush with the Culture of Death and her refusal to play the world’s game. I love that she gives two well-aimed upraised middle fingers: one to the abortion culture of the Left, and one to the Randian Makers vs. Takers class warriors of the Right. She’s one of my heros."

"While reading your blog I often sense a certain amount of conviction on your behalf, which makes me wonder why isn’t everyone reading the blogs of a woman who actually “gets it.”
