Post Thanksgiving Reading

  1. A story on megachurches adding local economic activity to their missions. On one hand I see how this can give the churches greater outreach opportunities and provide a Christian friendly environment for businesses and consumers. On the other hand, these churches could get sidetracked from saving souls to making a profit.
  2. The EU is seeking a ban on the sale of genetically modified corn. I am skeptical on whether this is more of an environmental or a trade protectionist cause.
  3. Here are women who have had themselves sterilized to "protect the planet." To quote one woman: "Having children is selfish. It's all about maintaining your genetic line at the expense of the planet." These women obviously view humans as consumers rather than producers and every new baby as a liability. I take the opposite view. Genesis 1:28: God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
