I was all excited to watch some college football, but after a while I remembered what I can’t stand most about college football – the games are too dang long.
I also noticed with the start of football season there are new commercials for drugs that treat erectile dysfunction. Heck, one lady is even wearing a football jersey.
I’m having an issue with my DirecTV DVR that I couldn’t solve by first researching their website and forums, so I decided to call them using the number provided on their website for Customer Service – 1-800-531-5000. That number gave me two options, press 1 if you are want to order new service and press 2 if you are an existing customer. I press 2, and then it tells me I called the wrong number and the number I need to call is . . . 1-800-531-5000 – the exact same number. I ended up calling the other number on that Contact Us page, which is to order service, and it provided with the correct prompts to get the technical assistance I needed.
Good to hear Tom Brady finally got a break in life.
I bet many of you think that I support anything I post, but that would be incorrect. Most of the time I will post a link but won’t provide any commentary, and it’s just stuff that I think others would simply find interesting or broaden their perspective on things. Most of the time, that’s why I post it, I found it interesting and it broadened my perspective, and sometimes I agree with it, sometimes I don’t, and sometimes I’m stuck in the middle as I see both sides.
Benjamin L. Corey – The 3 Biblical Options for a Theology of Hell – Far too many of us grow up with a singular concept of hell—often one that seems to paint God as one who delights in torturing people. Thankfully, there are other options one can hold while still keeping one’s feet firmly planted in the historic, orthodox Christian faith.
I wonder if there’s a flow chart for a worker to follow to see if part of their job goes against or damages their religious faith, and at what point to stay in that position or go elsewhere. I think about those that are against drinking (or maybe even eating non-kosher stuff) but work the checkout line at a grocery store or serve food in a restaurant. Those that believe women have a limited role in society and have to issue drivers licenses or count voting ballots. The pharmacy workers that are against abortion and process birth control prescriptions. Those opposed to divorce but work at a bank or brokerage firm and have to process the division of assets. And then there’s that whole Kentucky mess. Personally, I think for her to resign would have made a bolder statement.
