Happy Human Rights Day

I should have had this up on December 10. It was the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

I challenge (for fun) anyone to go over to Religious Liberty.tv (the emerging undistracted voice in Adventist religious liberty issues) and read the entire declaration (it's short). Is there anything with which you disagree?

My Response to Andy Nash Regarding Daniel 2

Andy Nash asks:

If I understand correctly, you're saying it's not necessarily an issue of great importance whether Daniel was written (by an actual prophet named Daniel )in 600 BCE or by someone else in 167 BCE--after at least some of the events in question had come to pass. Is that a fair understanding?

Doctorf wrote: "...lets say the later date 167 BCE is correct. Once again what does the date have to do with spiritual meaning of the story?"

A local paper in the Shenandoah Valley reports:

Frozen gravy, boxed stuffing and whole turkeys seemed to fly out of the Seventh-day Adventist Church on Tuesday as volunteers continued their annual holiday food distribution.

In just two hours, the church's volunteers cleared 127 turkeys, about 300 apples and more than 500 pounds of canned fruits and vegetables from the building, their largest distribution ever.

UPDATE: See this morning's GC statement in the comments.
