Tuesday Round Up

You should read this stuff.

Reverse Racism

Among those who have been disappointed by President Barack Obama, none is likely to end up so painfully disappointed as those who saw his election as being, in itself and in its consequences, a movement toward a “post-racial society.”

The story behind Metallica’s Virginia Tech-themed introduction before the Miami game

Conveniently, he didn’t point his accusing finger at the real culprit, the liberal affordable housing policy that he supported.

In which, my personal beliefs about Mormonism are stated more eloquently than could I:

Is Mormonism a Cult or a Christian Denomination?
Timoty Tennent, Asbury Theological Seminary

At root, Mormonism is about a man becoming God; Christianity is about God becoming a man. Thus, Mormonism has, quite rightly, not been considered a Christian movement.
