The Monday Tour 1/23/06

Hannah IM thinks Avoiding Controversy is a Joke . Hannah is an Intellectuelle - a group blog I love.

The church she attended in Incheon is worth reading about.
I am not even trying to pick something out here. A permanent carnival:

Best of the GodBlogs
I do not get to point out my friends at Habakkuk's Watchpost very often because, frankly, they are mostly too weird for me. However, they get the Hat tip for this Heresy Quiz. I was 100% Chalcedon compliant. Of course that was the first time I took the test, the second time I was a heretic. I am going downhill.
A couple of important things from Iraq the Model:
Wink at Parableman asks "Did Jesus Commit Suicide?". Good question.
The Cluebat of the Week at the Carnival of the Clueless is Russian Liberal and Democratic Party leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky for his response to Condoleezza Rice's criticism of a Russian - Ukrainian gas agreement. Now, this is really over-the-top:
“If she has no man by her side at her age, he will never appear,” Zhirinovsky ranted on. “Condoleezza Rice needs a company of soldiers. She needs to be taken to barracks where she would be satisfied."

“Condoleezza Rice is a very cruel, offended woman who lacks men’s attention,” he added. “Such women are very rough. … They can be happy only when they are talked and written about everywhere.”

Reminds me of Dan Ackroyd talking to Jane Curtain on Saturday Night Live.
For a theist vs atheist smackdown started at Evangelical Outpost by Joe Carter: Alice, Atheists, and the Ability to Believe Impossible Things.

I am not sure that could be complete without PZ Meyers and McEmbryos

Once you get past atheism, you will need to know How to Pick a Preacher. I prefer steak BTW.
Jan at The View From Her has Of Men and Women.
Hopefully, no further proof will be necessary: UF requirement for partner benefits: You must have sex and sign an affidavit to that effect (HT: WorldMagBlog)

Good politics, or a Democrat self-destructing: Taking a hack at Christians.
Ok, that is enough for a week.
