From One Who Knows

Dennis Prager's weekly article is, as always, brilliant. It's a must read for those on either side of the political and religious spectrum. Possibly more so for those on the left and secular end of it. Here's a sound bite:

"With this first column of 2005, I inaugurate a periodic series of columns devoted to explaining and making the case for what are called Judeo-Christian values.

There is an epic battle taking place in the world over what value system humanity will embrace. There are essentially three competitors: European secularism, American Judeo-Christianity and Islam. I have described this battle in previous columns.

Now, it is time to make the case for Judeo-Christian, specifically biblical, values. I believe they are the finest set of values to guide the lives of both individuals and societies. Unfortunately, they are rarely rationally explained -- even among Jewish and Christian believers, let alone to nonbelievers and members of other faiths."

He even goes on to quote, as he often does, one of the most famous lines by G.K. Chesterton (recently inducted as one of my heroes), "When people stop believing in God, they don't believe in nothing--they believe in anything."

lol...did I really not update since New Years? Shame on me. Yeah, I had a little bit of free time on my hands last night. I love school; it's going to be a lot harder this quarter though. Already I'm having to practice twice as much as last quarter. It's good though; I don't do well if I'm bored.
