Cool Maps of Indonesia - May 31

Is it the end of May already? Man, time flies by! It certainly is later than you think on God's stopwatch too, my friend. I have a hodge-podge of stuff to cover so no Carson-esque monologue for you.

I have stumbled upon three cool links. They are maps of Jogyakarta, where that earthquake occured and not far from a still dangerous Mt. Merapi.

Moral Equivalency Alert! Moral Equivalency Alert! All Holy Books are created Equal Dep't: Some dopey professor in New York is putting the Bible and the Koran on the same footing in terms of violence. Why, just the other day I heard about some Methodists talk about killing infidels. Anglicans? Forever complaining to the media about 'Anglicaphobia'. A horde of Presbyterians torched a foreign embassy recently, too. So I can see what they mean.

Gord Downie (of the Tragically Hip), pat yourself on the back. New Orleans IS sinking (and I don't wanna swim).

Two items concerning the American military:

1) There are some disturbing stories coming from Haditha, Iraq about Marines killing a bunch of civilians. Facts are sketchy at this point so I'll keep you posted should anything of significance occur.

2) VP Dick Cheney addresses the newest Naval Academy grads and tells them, "Know your enemy!" Wow. What a radical idea! D'ya think we'd be in the same pickle right now in Iraq and elsewhere if we bothered to properly research Islam? Iraq is NOT post WWII Germany for crying out loud! As a wise proverb says, If you think education is expensive, try ignorance. Try to the tune of 3000 dead and rising.

Dan Gillerman, Israel's Ambassador to the League of Nations, oops, United Nations has stated that World War Three is underway. Gosh Dan, thanks but it appears our churches, MP's and the liberal media here in CanaD'uh have fallen asleep. Is anybody there? Hellooo! HELLLOOOOO!!!!

A Saudi safely ensconced in Birmingham U.K. tears a new a--hole for Hamas to use. I guess the first one wasn't working well enough.

Immigration from Hell Dep't: Read this Daniel Pipes article about how wanna-be refugees from North Africa are attempting to enter Europe. Yes, even France!

As this Friday is Pentacost and I am a member in good standing of a Pentacostal church, I thought this link might provoke you in the right way.

Finally, because I hate leaving a post on a negative side, read about what GFA missionaries are doing in the Rooftop of the World, Nepal.

Hope that makes up for yesterday.

I liked your final piece about the missionary work being done in Nepal. Thanks for the info. Keep up the good work.
