  2. Speaking of Facebook...Josh Harris (you know the "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" guy) said this in response to a dialogue he's been having on his blog about Facebook: "Enjoy Facebook. And if you're a godly single man, receive it as a gift from God to assist you in nonchalantly building a friendship with a godly Christian woman. I'm serious, men! If you're mature enough to pursue marriage, Facebook should be 'Courtbook' for you. Don't just sit there, get on the ball and go "poke" a godly girl. Okay, enough 'Love Doctor' advice. I gave up that business a long time ago." I thought it was funny. Go read the full post, as well as the previous post where Harris gives his personal opinion of Facebook.

Her response was that the intention was to “look at the totality of the spectrum [of religious political involvement], from the violent to the legitimate.” She reiterated that the producers had no intention of creating a “moral equivalency” least of all “in the tactics used.”
