Off Hiatus

It's hard to believe that it's actually Blogger that remotivated me to start blogging again. But with this new drag-and-drop layout, it is pretty easy. I typically despise WYSIWYG layout since it is so limited, but in this case I welcome it. Anything that allows me shorten the time and not totally sacrifice my content is appreciated.

So what have I been up to? Well, working. It turns out the true active season of this camp is from May to late November, not October as previously advertised. It's a great problem to have, but it has kept me on my toes and allowed for little rest in the mean time. I am eager for the rest that Thanksgiving will bring.

I was close to posting last week after the recent Wisconsin election results as well. As a Christian, it was pretty embarrassing. I have often distanced myself from the typical Evangelical outlook on politics, and this only reinforced my reasoning.

It kills me how much Christians missed the boat this year. While many churches were busy taking up their issue of being strongly against same-sex marriage, they may have missed the bigger issue: the death penalty. Even the church I attend here in Westfield was guilty of it. They encouraged people to put up little signs in their yard to vote "yes" on the same-sex marriage bill, but they never even mentioned the death penalty. I have to think that if Jesus was at those polls he would have been much more adimate about the killing of people than anything else.

But I'm off my soapbox now. I am really enjoying the college football season right now. All this crazy stuff is happening in the top 10 and Wisconsin is slowly creeping up the list. I think they are the most under the radar team in the top 25 right now. I'm not thinking national championship or anything, but a top 10 finish isn't out of the question.

Hope all is well out there. Hopefully I can get more consistent with this thing again.

I am with you on the death penalty, I think a big reason it went so unnoticed was because it wasn’t a guaranteed change like the gay marriage amendment. I voted against the death penalty, but even though it passed, it will be batted around in the state legislature when will be ultimately vetoed by Gov. Doyle. So I wouldn’t worry too much about it becoming law in this state.

I actually heard that the marriage amendment is still in flux as well. It will probably be ultimately decided by a series of judges, not the public. Which is how government is supposed to work anyways.
