slip 'n' slide

And the slide down the slippery slope continues. Next thing you know, they'll be selling cigars in the Baylor Bookstore.

This article is interesting because it touches on something I've been thinking about a lot lately: how American evangelical culture sets up all kinds of standards, rules, and moral codes that aren't based in anything Biblical, but rather in the culture. Hopefully I'll have time to write something about that soon.

Not totally on topic but have you watched Friends of God (on HBO, Nancy Pelosi's daughter did the documentary)?

She's a little condescending at times but I actually thought she was pretty fair.

No, I don't have HBO, but I've heard good things.
