Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Why was this so different from the book? The attention to detail in the book was amazing. The characters believable - even the vampires seemed more believable. And what the heck was with that random horse sequence??? It just came from out of the blue and I guess it was supposed to wow me with special effects so that I would not care so much about dropping the story ball. But I care about story. Much as I love Tim Burton - there is none of what I love about Burton in this film. 

I thought the book would have made a great movie - maybe it will one day, but this isn't that day and this isn't that film. 

le sigh.

THO 2141 - The Kingdom of God

The university (Saint Paul) has just given me their course choice. The subtitle for this one is Eschatology in North American Theologies. This is a good strong subject for me so I'm looking forward to it. The biggest problem will be trimming the material to fit into a single semester course.

Human Rights

Regardless of where you land on the rights for gay persons to participate in church and society, Uganda's 'Kill the Gays' bill has to be the most unChristian legislation ever to be considered. I feel very angry that this bill is tauted as being Christian.  I have been trying to find a way to channel my outrage at the inhuman law they want to pass. Here is one way I've found - sign this petition.

Thank you.

Teaching in the Summer!

I just got confirmation that I will be teaching this summer. I proposed three courses and am just waiting on my course code to see what one they want me to deliver. Oh happy day.
