Quick note in my travels

Relevant links to two contemporary issues:

1. On the Terri Shiavo case, the judge that decided that Terri Shiavo should die is now a former member of a Southern Baptist Church, thanks to the courageous stand of its pastor (hat tip to Jason Engwer on the NTRMin Discussion Forum).

2. On the Georgia killer, Brian Nichols: Hostage Ashley Smith's promotion of "The Purpose Driven Life" has catapulted Rick Warren and his book to the secular media spotlight. CNN interviewed John MacArthur on the book, and of course he set the record straight about the theologically shallow "search for significance" movement in Evangelical circles. CNN, as usual, distorted the facts (hat tip to Alpha and Omega ministries).
