Who Are These Guys?

Lots of people who read this blog love military history and baseball.

That is a hint.  Who are these two guys?  The picture was taken in 1924.

Babe Ruth on the right.... Calvin Coolidge on the left?

Babe Ruth and John Pershing (General).

Calvin Coolidge? Come on! Hard to believe that at one time the Babe could actually fit in a uniform. Think C.C.

How are you doing in the legal trenches? We are praying for you!

Doing well here. In the arena. Thanks for the prayers. There continue to be threats to Christian liberty popping up all over .... I'm still battling for Chistian liberty, much to the consternation of DGH, Zrim, and compay. I was heartened by the Supreme Court's recent reaffirmation of basic First Amendment doctrine in the case of the Baptist funeral demonstrators. (They were abhorent, but the decision was important to freedom of speech and expression.)

You might want to rename the file before you post it.

Right click, "copy image location", past into somewhere for examination.

The shorter feller on the left looks like Bob Godfrey. The one of the right is Kim Riddlebarger. Where they got those outfits and why they were playing dress up, I don't know!

Agree with you about the Supreme Court decision. A little frustrating hearing non-lawyers denounce the decision without realizing important 1st Amendment principles were at stake, repellant as one of the litigants is. God be with you as you faithfully carry out your vocation.

If you right click to save the picture, the name comes up "Babe and Pershing", so I'm guessing that's right. :)

I recognized Pershing, thought it looked like Ruth, but decided it couldn't be. What was he doing in uniform?

I'm not a baseball fan (I live in the Chicago area, 'nuff said) but I'm 99% sure that the gent on the right is Babe Ruth. (Can anyone enlighten me on when he was in the military?) The gent on the left is General Pershing; of that I'm 100% sure. cats rule.

(CVD, I like Christian liberty. But it does seem to me the kind worth fighting for is more spiritual than legal. The PRC has fairly recently decided against Christian liberty by demanding that all officers employ denominational schools on pain of discipline. And the URC stil seems to make things safe for educational legalism in Article 14 of its CO.)

Babe couldn't have been in the military in 1924. He was playing for the Yankees then. That's why I asked about the uniform.

Zrim, have you ever heard the term "false dichotomy"?
March 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCVanDyke
(CVD, to keep it barely on-topic, have you heard of choosing your battles? I get your point, but it would have a bit more merit if one heard as much hoopla over the PRC decision to bind consciences as one hears about police breaking up home Bible studies.)

Zrim, totally off topic. But while you're off topic ...

The reason you don't hear as much about your inside-baseball issue should be evident even to a blinkered idealogue. Only a handfull of people have even heard about PRC or its decision, and you could pack a phone booth with the number of people who, having heard about it, care about the issue; but millions of Christians of all denominations care about the freedom of Christians to worship and live as Christians. Even secular ACLU lawyers care about the threats to religious freedom in the nation. The only Christians who don't want to fight for Christian freedom are extremists who argue a pacifist, quietist version of 2K not heretofore found on the earth since the Mennonites and Amiish.

(CVD, are you making a big numbers argument? That's sort of evangelical, don't you think? But I am sympathetic to legal religious liberty. I'm just more sympathetic to the sort that watches out for the other instead of the self, as in the American revisions to the WCF 23.3 or Belgic 36 that call for the state not to enforce true religion in pain of punishment and watch out for the reputation of false religionists. I know, "radical." When it's spiritual is when it's totally about us.)
