I started a post last week that got much too long, and it occurred to me that it would make a good post series. Introducing Facts That Aren’t.

Facts That Aren’t posts will examine assertions that “everyone” “knows,” that in fact have extremely limited or highly qualified truth values. Generally these “facts” are propagated by people who benefit if you believe them—for political or commercial reasons, for example.

I’ve done a bit of this on BoWilliams.com before, but never systematically, with this sort of sustained intent. I haven’t decided whether I’m going to have a regular day of the week for the series, or I’ll just do them as they come. However I ultimately do it, the first entry will be tomorrow, and I’m jumping straight into the inferno. Please join me.

wtc13Dear God,

Even though the events of 9-11 took place long ago, most of us can still recall them like it was yesterday. Some, more than others, are still feeling the effects, and the pain.

On this day, we remember all those who lost their lives and their loved ones to this terrible tragedy.

We lift up their families and their friends, and ask for strength, peace, and comfort.

We also remember and honor those heroes who stepped in to help, to save, to serve.

And we will never forget those who gave their lives for the noble cause of rescuing others. We are forever grateful, and pray blessing and comfort over their families.

We pray for the spirit of unity to revisit our nation – the unity we felt in the midst of our struggles and our confusion.

We pray that our citizens would look to God for wisdom and guidance, just as many did during that time of uncertainty.

But most of all, we pray for the swift return of our Savior, who will one day put an end to all tragedies, and to all tears.

We love You. And we pray all these things in the powerful name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Amen.

Prayer is from a video at MotionWorship.com

My friend Carol recently expressed frustration that we’re all running around babbling about stars’ naughty bits and football team nicknames, and the ostensible leader of the free world is golfing and hobnobbing as it burns down. (That’s not exactly what she said, but I suspect she’d be fine with that account of her concern.) To be [...]

The Obama administration has known all along—through all of the histrionics about damaged hard drives and whatever else—that Lois Lerner’s email is backed up, just like any other government email. Obama administration attorneys have dismissed this system as too onerous to search. Here is today’s statement from Judicial Watch. It is abundantly clear that Judge [...]
