Don’t sue your brother (unless he owns your domain name)

Pensacola Christian College is suing a former graduate for $100,000. Over a domain name. It seems that Peter Gage isn’t a fan of his alma mater. In fact, he owns the domain name pensacolachristiancollege.com, which he uses to criticize the conservative school’s policies. The school offered to buy the domain name.  Gage asked for payment of $75,000 either to himself or a charity. So… what do you think?  Should the college sue? What would you do if, for example, a former member of your church started a website like [insertyourchurchnamehere]sucks.com? Is it best to ignore or go after...

I can’t stinkin’ remember your name…

OK… I admit it.  I have a terrible time remembering names. In fact, I’m so horrible… that if you are introduced to me, chances are high that I will forget your name by the time I’m done talking with you. That’s a horrible thing to admit. It doesn’t mean I don’t like you. And it doesn’t mean that I’m not interested in you. I just can’t remember your name. At least the first time. But after I’ve got it… I won’t forget it. That’s why I was happy about this article that promised I could remember anyone’s name with...

Blessed beers?

This post at Eatocracy lists several ‘religiously themed’ beers… Gouden Carolus Easter – The Gouden Carolus brewery traces its roots back to 15th century Belgium when Christian women were responsible for brewing beer and lived in communal settings known as Beguines. This beer, released once a year around Easter, is deep red in color and tastes of plums and licorice. Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 13 – The Saint Arnold Brewery out of Houston, Texas, is named after the famous saint who is credited with saying two of my favorite beer quotes: “From man’s sweat and God’s...

The new televangelist (2013 version)

Are you a modern-day televangelist?  Chris Nye thinks that we have merely re-defined what a televangelist is (in the current day) with blogs, youtube, satellite campuses, tablets, smart phones, etc. He writes: We are not finished with the Televangelists, I’ve realized. We have simply rebranded them. We’ve changed the style but not the substance. When it comes to the habit of elevating certain gifted communicators, and trying desperately to be like them, little has changed. As our culture has moved from the television screen to the computer/tablet screen, the Televangelist has moved along...
