Tonight (Sunday, March 9, 2014) at 6 pm CST I will be doing an “Ask Me Anything” session on the Anarcho-Capitalism Reddit board (or “Sub-Reddit” for regular users). I will be fielding questions regarding Christianity and libertarianism / anarcho-capitalism to the best of my ability for about 2 hours with an additional hour if I need to catch up on questions I miss.
While I do intend to answer as many questions as possible regarding libertarian thought in general, I will give special priority to those questions with theological flare. Also admissible: questions about my work against the TSA, and the viral Netflix chat from last fall (which made a big splash on Reddit).
Hopefully, a good time will be had by all, so I’ll see you there!
UPDATE: Link to the Reddit thread.
We have recently noticed that Feedburner – the website through which we publish our RSS feed and email subscriptions – has been acting up and no longer is sending emails to subscribers. As a result, no email was sent to subscribers for the previous three posts: Spot the Theological Problem, Is Wealth a Sin, and God’s Own Party. Please forgive us for the inconvenience.
Feedburner is a Google product that currently receives very little support, and the popular consensus is that, like Google Reader, Feedburner will be shut down eventually. We are investigating what options we have to switch over to a new system. We will try to make the switch as seamless as possible, but expect that email subscribers will be most affected by the change. Thank you for your patience through this transition.
If you have been an RSS subscriber via Google Reader and have not known what to do now that Reader is shut down, I recommend you try out Feedly.com as an alternative. I have found it to be an excellent RSS aggregator and fun to use. You can also create an email subscription for yourself through If-This-Then-That (IFTTT), which is a useful service on its own.
Stay tuned for further updates regarding new subscription options as we expand the reach of LCC’s great content.
Finally, if you are an RSS guru and want to help us out, please drop us a line at LCC’s Contact Page.
I will be on the “Live and Let Live” Radio Show this Sunday night, December 8, 2013, from 9pm to 10pm CST. I will be speaking with host Gary Johnson (no, not the former presidential candidate, but the TEXAS Gary Johnson) about government, marriage, and the Patrick Henry College debate, as well as other Christian libertarian topics.
The program is live on the Logos Radio Network, also known as the Rule of Law Radio Network. It can be heard live on http://www.LogosRadioNetwork.com and on affiliate stations, including 90.1 FM in Austin, Texas. The episode will be archived on http://archive.LogosRadioNetwork.com/category/live-and-let-live/.
You can even call in to ask a question at 512-646-1984.
Tune in and hang out with us on Sunday night!
I will be participating in a debate this Saturday at 7:00 pm EST (November 16, 2013) at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, Virginia. The debate is hosted by the Wilberforce Society, and the topic is “Government and Marriage.” More specifically, should the government define marriage to be between one man and one woman? I’ll be defending the negative — that government should not have that power. It should be a really fun event. My fellow debater will be Dr. Allan Carlson of the Howard Center For Family, Religion, and Society. I am confident that we will all be able to learn from each other.
If you’re in the area, feel free to join us (I think it is open to the public). The debate will be held in the Student Lounge of the Barbara Hodel Center, located at 10 Patrick Henry Circle, Purcellville, VA 20132.
I am uncertain at this point if the debate will be recorded and/or streamed live, but stay tuned to this post and I will update with additional details as they come.
Lastly, please pray that I can present the best case for why we cannot trust the government to be any better a steward or regulator of “marriage” than they are a steward of our economy, health, or security. As always, thank you for your support of the efforts of LibertarianChristians.com!
UPDATE: I am told that the event will be live-streamed, click here at 7pm EST on November 16 to watch. Hopefully the recording will be made available following the event…
