Memorial Day

By Lex, on Mon – May 31, 2004

The text of my speech, for those who were curious. It will be given in church, so there are religious references – if such things offend you, I recommend you read elsewhere.

Wish me luck!

Neptunus Lex: Some Recommended Posts By Category

Please note: This is still a work in progress. I am not finished with all of the categories. I have noticed too that in most of the post links, it does not open a second window, so I will have a bit of work to do 😉 

As I am about to finish reposting Lex’s posts, I thought it would be nice to offer some recommended reading by category. Lex had a lot of interesting posts – some humorous, some instructional….Some about life. I am sure that as I read through these I will pick some more categories. 

This is by no means a “definitive list” – I will probably have 1,500 or more posts by the time I am done, but it is a start. And I am certainly not the arbitrator of what should be here; if you have some favorites please let me know! 

I am just going down the Best Of Index

Understanding

Posted by lex, on February 13, 2009

 

Buffalo resident Muzzammil Hassan opened up a web portal in 2004 called “Bridges TV“. The outlet was designed to “help portray Muslims in a more positive light.”

From a cursory scan, the site – which “aims to foster a greater understanding among many cultures and diverse populations” – focuses a great deal of energy on such under- reported issues as the occupation of Gaza by the Evil Zionist Entity. In English!

Mr. Hassan’s wife had recently filed for divorce against the media magnate of cross-cultural understanding. So yesterday, Mr. Hassan appears to have decided that a way to foster greater understanding in the English-speaking world was to cut off her head:

Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband — an influential member of the local Muslim community — reported her death to police Thursday.

Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37. Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.

He needn’t have bothered. We already understood perfectly.

Amature philosophical/religious musings after the jump, for those who care for that sort of thing.

Going Sinker 

By lex, on July 20th, 2010

Hate doing this to you again – I do so enjoy our little chats – but life has this habit of getting in the way of hobbies. I’ve got some serious stuff to work through on the home front, and it may be a little while.

Please feel free to talk amongst yourselves.

For the Anglicans in the crowd, BCP  Prayer #56 is solicited.

Ordination

By lex, on May 27th, 2010

So, yez might recall that our own Major Padre Harvey was to have his ordination last night at the Gateway Community Church in Escondido. ‘Twas a bit of a shame that he couldn’t tarry until the 11th of June, for I could have stopped in on my way to Portland, it’s that far north. Or seemed it anyway.

The Faith of James Cameron

By lex, on December 21st, 2009

There is a kind of religion in Hollywood, Roth Douthat opines and it’s on full display in James Cameron’s latest opus:

“Avatar” is Cameron’s long apologia for pantheism — a faith that equates God with Nature, and calls humanity into religious communion with the natural world…

(Pantheism) has been Hollywood’s religion of choice for a generation now. It’s the truth that Kevin Costner discovered when he went dancing with wolves. It’s the metaphysic woven through Disney cartoons like “The Lion King” and “Pocahontas.” And it’s the dogma of George Lucas’s Jedi, whose mystical Force “surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together.” Hollywood keeps returning to these themes because millions of Americans respond favorably to them.
