Old Line Elephant News Roundup: 8/14/12

Time for another exciting episode of…me rounding up the news. Let us begin our whirlwind journey with news items from…where ever I feel like going. Here we go:

  • The the Ways & Means committee of the Maryland House of Delegates has approved updated rules for Maryland slots operators as part of the new bid to expand gambling in Maryland. The rules make me wonder why anyone would want to set up a casino in Maryland with such low allowable profit margins. Also, with this being state sponsored, it becomes a bigger to do. The Senate passed measures this weekend on gambling as part of this waste of a special session.
  • DMinor of Misfitpolitics wrote an excellent piece entitled, “A ‘Wizard of Oz’ Presidential Election” which pokes fun at…well, the Democratic establishment. It’s entertaining.
  • Keanu Reeves reveals some plot points for the totally excellent new Bill & Ted movie. Let me tell you – it actually sounds entertaining.
  • If O’Malley wants to ban donations from casino owners to state politicians, he should put his money where his mouth is. Mark Newgent of Red Maryland has more on the hypocrisy of O’Malley.
  • Three out of four adults (not registered voters) agree – we should have photo ID in order to vote. I also agree.
  • David Rogers of SBC Voices reposted an article entitled, “Choosing Sides.” It’s an excellent piece and especially relevant to the battles the Southern Baptist Convention seems to be having (at least on the blogosphere) over Calvinism. Bottom line: Calvinists & non-Calvinists can and should work together to spread the Gospel of Christ. Christ’s redemption and His Great Commission to His followers do not rely solely on whether we are pre-ordained for Heaven or not.
  • The Mittness announced his running mate this weekend, Paul Ryan. I couldn’t be happier – he’s young, articulate, conservative, and more than capable for the #2 job. I’ve already bought my button for “America’s Comeback Team.”
  • Lifeway Research released some fascinating polling on Protestants. Bottom line: most Christians feel confident they can and should talk to others about their faith, but few do. The Great Commission handed to us by Christ compels us to tell others about Him. I try to; I know I’m not perfect, but I do use the mediums available to me to try to share the Gospel. I would like more opportunities, which is why I began bringing a pocket New Testament with me to work – even if it’s just a conversation starter, it starts the conversation on Christ, which is important.
  • One of my Catholic friends on Twitter, William Newton, wrote a piece entitled, “All the Lonely People” on Eleanor Rigby and a nun named Edith Stein. It’s an important piece to note that while life can be difficult, if we cling to Christ alone our hope will be found.
  • Speaking of Christ alone, Eric Morris at Misfit Politics wrote a moving piece about his faith and his walk. Read it.

Anything I’ve missed? Possibly. Feel free to add links to comments below.

    Any reduction in the shoes is instead of boots counterfeit. Such a broad power to shop for MBT shoes online. They are. And maybe opportunities have come to their front doors.
