First bunch of links is all about #Ferguson:

1. Things To Stop Being Distracted By When A Black Person Gets Murdered By Police (posted August 12) "... the right to walk down the street without being a target for murder by the police isn’t a right one should have to prove themselves worthy of."

2. Michael Brown. Ferguson. (posted August 18) Good summary of the facts up to last Monday. Lots of links.

3. Mike Brown: Facts and dog whistles (posted August 18) "In other words, by releasing the video of Mike Brown stealing cigars, the police chief said, 'White people. It's OK. You don't have to care.'"

4. Tear gas is a chemical weapon banned in war. But Ferguson police shoot it at protesters. (posted August 14) 

And a couple other miscellaneous links:

1. I was 17, on death row -- and innocent (posted July 13) "The system does not identify and sentence 'the worst of the worst' to death -- just the most powerless."

2. Be Not Deceived: There’s No Such Thing As A “Christian Banker” (posted June 20) "There is no 'third way' on this issue, and if you try to find one, it’s only because you’re ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus and would rather deny him before men than take a stand against banking."

3. Please enjoy the genie/Robin Williams singing "Friend Like Me":

4. The 614th Commandment (posted August 10) "When we suggest that God has replaced Israel with the Church, what we’re really saying is that God has broken his unconditional, no-strings-attached promise to Israel: ‘I will be your God and you will be my People.’"

5. The Hole in Noll: The whiteness of ‘[White] America’s God’ (posted August 21) "The important thing there — what should be, for all Christians, everywhere, the most astonishingly important thing — is that America’s black Christians were right."
