    'Mr. Keller had such disdain for President Trump that it enraged him that someone was displaying a Trump flag' New Jersey police said that a man faces charges of criminal mischief and harassment for repeatedly throwing trash onto the lawn of a Sussex County home where a Donald Trump flag was posted. “I think you know why,” Richard Keller, 58, reportedly told police when they asked why he had thrown garbage onto the lawn, according to a local news outlet. “Because of that flag.”

    President Trump's rally Monday in Montoursville, Pennsylvania (a very interesting choice of location) drove a smashing victory for the Republican running for Congress in the 12th District.  With all the ballots counted, Republican Fred Keller defeated Democrat Marc Friedenberg by more than a two-to-one margin.  Via the New York Times: This is an even higher margin that was enjoyed by Republican Tom Marino, who was a multi-term incumbent — usually a significant advantage.  For a new name on the ballot to outpoll an incumbent in the same district is significant.  Via Ballotpedia: Take a bow, Mr. President!

    **SNIP** The board voted 12-2 to keep Clinton, with board members Geraldine "Tincy" Miller and Pat Hardy dissenting and one abstention. "I just do not respect the woman," Hardy said. "As far as I'm concerned, she's done a lot of detrimental things to our country." Miller agreed, saying “The Benghazi thing did it for me.” Republican board member Marty Rowley said he disagrees with Clinton's politics but noted she was an important figure. "I have to give credit where credit is due,” he said. “She is a significant political leader."
  • How Do Christians Fit Into The Two-Party System? They Don’t

    New York Times ^ | 9-29-18 | Tim Keller
    What should the role of Christians in politics be? More people than ever are asking that question. Christians cannot pretend they can transcend politics and simply “preach the Gospel.” Those who avoid all political discussions and engagement are essentially casting a vote for the social status quo. (Skip) Nevertheless, while believers can register under a party affiliation and be active in politics, they should not identify the Christian church or faith with a political party as the only Christian one. (Skip) One is that it gives those considering the Christian faith the strong impression that to be converted, they need...

    PJ Media ^ | Jan 16, 2018 | D.C. McAllister
    I recently listened to a lecture by a pastor, Tim Keller from New York, who argued that white people need to apologize to blacks for the sin of their fathers’ racism...... Keller says, “I mean I still hear it, though especially years ago when I lived in the South. I heard white people say, ‘Yeah, it’s a shame what slavery did, but I never owned any slaves so why in the world does anybody think that I as a white person now had any responsibility to that community over there at all? I didn’t own slaves.’ But here is Daniel...

    I find it frustrating when I read or hear columnists, pundits, or journalists dismiss Christians as inconsistent because “they pick and choose which of the rules in the Bible to obey.” Most often I hear, “Christians ignore lots of Old Testament texts—about not eating raw meat or pork or shellfish, not executing people for breaking the Sabbath, not wearing garments woven with two kinds of material and so on. Then they condemn homosexuality. Aren’t you just picking and choosing what you want to believe from the Bible?” I don’t expect everyone to understand that the whole Bible is about Jesus...

    Tim Keller founded one of the most influential urban churches in America, Redeemer Presbyterian, which is theologically conservative, racially diverse and growing across its three New York City congregations. He was set to receive an award from Princeton Theological Seminary, also a Presbyterian institution in the Reformed tradition, for his contributions to the “Neo-Calvinist vision of religious engagement.”
  • Keller, Piper and Carson on Thriving Churches in a Hostile Culture

    06/24/2015 10:51:01 AM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 3 replies
    Many Christians are fearful of the changes they see around them. What are the prospects of a thriving church if our culture continues to grow more hostile? “We must neither panic on the one hand nor assume persecution is always good on the other,” Tim Keller explains in a new roundtable video with Don Carson and John Piper [audio]. “Persecution is inevitable, but there is no way to simply say it’s good or bad for the church.” We must think in “far bigger, biblical categories than mere number-based, pundit-generated trend analysis,” adds Carson, author of Christ and Culture Revisited (Eerdmans,...

    Mark Twain & Helen Keller’s Special Friendship: He Treated Me Not as a Freak, But as a Person Dealing with Great Difficulties Sometimes it can seem as though the more we think we know a historical figure, the less we actually do. Helen Keller? We’ve all seen (or think we’ve seen) some version of The Miracle Worker, right?—even if we haven’t actually read Keller’s autobiography. And Mark Twain? He can seem like an old family friend. But I find people are often surprised to learn that Keller was a radical socialist firebrand, in sympathy with workers’ movements worldwide. In a...
  • God Isn’t Dead in Gotham (Tim Keller in NYC)

    12/21/2014 4:06:32 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 11 replies ^ | Kate Bachelder
    ‘Cheer up, you’re worse than you think,” Rev. Timothy Keller says with a smile. He’s explaining that humans are more weak, more fallen, more warped than they “ever dare admit or even believe.” Then comes the good news: At the same time people are “more loved in Christ and more accepted than they could ever imagine or hope.” Do you know many New Yorkers who believe that? Perhaps not, but on Sundays some 5,500 city folk file into the church Mr. Keller founded 25 years ago, Redeemer Presbyterian, at eight packed services across three Manhattan locations, the Greenwich Village campus...

    Lesson No. 1: Publicly questioning the motives and intentions of a woman who is seriously ill with cancer can land you in a heap of controversy. Writer Emma Gilbey Keller and her husband, former New York Times executive editor Bill Keller, seem to have found this out over the past few days. In a successive pair of columns in different publications, the Kellers opined about the prodigious tweets of a woman named Lisa Bonchek Adams, a Stage IV breast cancer patient in New York — and both reaped a whirlwind of outrage in the process. For months, Adams, a mother...

    Ronnie Earle's problematic record as Travis County District Attorney is coming back to haunt him - yet again. Earle, a Democrat, made a name for himself with some clever legal sophistry: specifically, he convinced a gullible jury in liberal Travis County, Texas, that former Republican House Speaker Tom DeLay was guilty of "money laundering" related to his funneling of campaign contributions to Republican candidates. A Texas Appeals Court recently dismissed the charges, ruling DeLay had broken no laws. Delay had called the prosecution the criminalization of politics. Now, another case overseen by Earle in the liberal enclave of Travis County...

His unit was attacked “while on dismounted patrol.” Read more here:

    Dallas Baptist University ^ | 1997 | Tim Keller
    The young man in my office was impeccably dressed and articulate. He was an Ivy League MBA, successful in the financial world, and had lived in three countries before age 30. Raised in a family with only the loosest connections to a mainline church, he had little understanding of Christianity. I was therefore gratified to learn of his intense spiritual interest, recently piqued as he attended our church. He said he was ready to embrace the gospel. But there was a final obstacle. "You've said that if we do not believe in Christ," he said, "we are lost and condemned....

  • Email From Norway (Pamela Geller publishes letter from Brevik in 2007?)

    See here: I am running an email I received from an Atlas reader in Norway. It is devastating in its matter-of-factness. Well, yes, the situation is worsening. Stepping up from 29 000 immigrants every year, in 2007 we will be getting a total of 35 000 immigrants from somalia, iran, iraq and afghanistan. The nations capital is already 50% muslim, and they ALL go there after entering Norway. Adding the 1.2 births per woman per year from muslim women, there will be 300 000+ muslims out of the then 480 000 inhabitants of that city. Orders from Libya and Iran...

    The latest edition of the New York Times’s Sunday magazine gave conservatives a rare opportunity to repurpose Times Executive Editor Bill Keller as a pinata, though the paper’s intent may have been to make its conservative critics look irrational. Readers responded bluntly to Keller’s trashing of Sarah Palin in his column for the June 19 issue, in which he claimed “most journalists would recoil in horror from the idea” of a Palin presidency. The Times printed a full page of letters, a dozen in all, from insulting Keller critics and Palin sympathizers. A few were incisive: You write that only...
  • On NPR, N.Y. Times Editor Bill Keller Defends the 'Value' of WikiLeaks: Their Info's 'Absolutely...'

    On NPR's weekend show On The Media (produced by radio station WNYC), New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller reacted badly to NPR's Bob Garfield suggesting Julian Assange of WikiLeaks was a "looter" or a smasher of windows. Keller insisted the document dump has "more value" than that metaphor, that the dump is "absolutely a graduate seminar" on international relations. It's a "ridiculous standard" to insist these finds must be Earth-shattering to be a positive development: BOB GARFIELD: Now, the stories so far have been revealing but unsurprising, it seems to me, and not especially indicting.
