Napkin: New North Idaho Blog Has Own Worries

I worry about the culture wars, about the growing number of people who say “evangelical Christian” like it’s a curse word, as if we are a poison or a plague, a blight that must be eradicated in the name of human progress. I see Political Correctness, a movement that I’m sure was born in kindness, grown into a surly teenager, run amok and unable to see reason or logic. And I wonder how long it will be before a law is passed forbidding me to teach my children my “intolerant” attitudes toward sin, or the “ridiculous” notion of absolute truth. I worry about winning the hearts and the minds of my son and daughter in a world of self-serving morality that promises everything and delivers emptiness.

DFO: Family Phil brought Notes On A Napkin to my attention in the comments section last night. Terrific blogger. Great insight. Please give her an HBO welcome. (I’m also checking out a recommendation from Sparkle Pony.)
