You know, every time I see this video it's just as moving.

Quick comments, promise.

Stats class taught me this: if you see something you don't expect, ask why. Are those Atheists and Agnostics with lower divorce rates having the same marriage rate?

Are the religious affiliations of the convicts being assessed before or after their sentencing? You do know that being a Christian in jail is one way to get points toward early release right?

The "fools" irony is a miscontruing of the intent of the term in the passage specified. You can be a brilliant and even wonderful person in every human sense of the word, yet still be lost in sin.

BTW: I admired and miss Carl Sagan dearly. He was a warm and engaging personality. For all I disagreed with him, I thank him for showing me some of the wonder of this Cosmos.

In Christian Love,

Very off-topic, but I saw this article today and immediately thought of your blog. I think this family definitely deserves an honorable mention for the Offspring Murder Club:

I guess no one thought my comment was worth considering. Sigh.

Its a percentage based on married couples only.

I dont think that the Federal Bureau of Prisons takes down the religious affiliations of inmates prior to them being convicted and sentenced. And yes I am aware that religiosity in prison helps get an early release. It is a sad case of governmental entanglement with religion.

BTW sorry for not responding earlier. I kinda got sidetracked with comments in other posts and forgot about this one :)

No problem. I'm moving along. It has been fun (and I hope spiritually educational) talking with you. I'll check the rest of my usual blog haunts here and check out. God bless you Aaron.
