It's Great to be Loved (Updated)
10/16/2008 - James WhiteJames White the Pinhead
I was pointed to this great article by Frank Luciani about me. I'm a pinhead, and a used car salesman, all rolled into one. Of course, anyone who actually listens to what I say, or accurately reads me, will have a hard time taking Mr. Luciani seriously, but...it is illustrative of how deeply tradition can impact what one "sees."
Update: I apologize for having linked to the above, but it is a bit late now. I did not realize the gentleman would explode with vile language and vitriol upon my noting his behavior. I do not suggest anyone even bother going to look---the man demonstrated what spirit he is of with clarity and force. One thing is for sure: while I have met many church-going Roman Catholics who had no problem using vile language in public (and in their correspondence!) I have yet to meet a Reformed person who did not blush upon failing to control his tongue. Says something to me in a day and age when James' exhortation concerning the tongue seems to have been forgotten by just about everyone.
James White: Hiding from Islam's Best?
Meanwhile, another fellow has decided that David Wood and I are picking on bad Muslim apologists because we can't handle the big guys. Yes, I know, that's hard to understand in light of our constant challenges to the very folks this fellow thinks are the best, but, just like the note above, it is amazing how people can see, and hear, only what they want. I took the time to respond to this allegation, and to a 55 second clip from Shabir Ally he played, in the following video.
How Long Will We Be Able to Openly Speak the Truth About Islam?

KUWAIT CITY : Kuwait Human Rights Society (KHRS) Chairman Dr Adel Al-Damkhi has asked the government to put pressure on the officials of ‘YouTube’ — a video sharing website — to delete all derogatory statements about Islam and Muslims from the site, reports Al-Seyassah.
Urging the authorities to take the necessary legal action in case the website fails to erase the statements, Al-Damkhi stressed “uttering profanities against Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the worst form of human rights violation in the world. Attacks on the values and tenets of Islam are extremely dangerous and unacceptable.”
Al-Damkhi pointed out the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) strongly condemns attacks on the holy prophets and religions. He confirmed KHRS recognizes the importance of freedom of conducting scientific research, exchange of information, and significance of the latest technologies and media on human lives, but it is against how ‘YouTube’ depicts Islam. He said this is an outright violation of the human rights of millions of Muslims all over the world.
