This blog grows out of my conviction that every aspect of our lives is sacred and is to be nurtured and celebrated as a good gift of God. Most of the posts will be the sorts of things you would expect from a historian and worldview teacher, but some are likely to be a bit surprising. Since God created all things good, including all aspects of human life, everything is interesting and important from the perspective of a biblical worldview. Everything under the Sun and under Heaven is thus fair game here. I hope you find it interesting and enjoyable.

The Murfreesboro Mosque

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty is taking the case of a Islamic Center in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, whose efforts to build a new mosque have been met with opposition, vandalism, and arson. As a Christian who believes in religious liberty, I find this attack on the Islamic Center reprehensible, and so I attached my name to a letter put out by the Becket Fund in support of the Islamic Center's right to build the mosque. Christians are often accused of being for religious liberty for ourselves but no one else. Unfortunately, sometimes the charge is true. I would encourage my fellow Christian believers to take seriously the idea of religious liberty and support the right of other religions to worship in peace without threat of violence or vandalism.
