The Phoenix Preacher has a very interesting take on what might happen at Calvary Chapel when Chuck Smith dies (he has stage IV lung cancer). It does not look good: On the Future of Calvary Chapel
Sadly, Robert Schuller has also been diagnosed with cancer. Robert Schuller. Please pray for both men (Smith and Schuller), and their families, despite whatever theological differences with them we have . . . One thing is for sure, the religious face of the OC will continue to change.
According to the NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, "if one person is offended, we have to listen." Really? Goodell is referring to the Washington Redskin's logo--which I concede is grounded in a racial stereotype. I'm Offended! Hey, what does that say about the Indians' Chief Wahoo?

This is not true of the Riddleblog . . . I get complaints all the time, and rarely consider them.
In the "sky isn't falling" department, yet another significant scientific study raises serious doubts about global warming. Climate Change Overblown?
