    I would like to use some of your comments in an essay. Is this okay with you and how would I cite you as a source?


  2. February 20, 2009 9:03 am


    Yes, it is OK.

    I’m not really sure how you cite internet resources to be honest, but I imagine that if you poke around the web with a search like “Chicago internet citation” or “MLA internet citation” someone will have come up with some specific format.

    For the sake of interest: what comments?

    Scott, you’re probably all over this already but Jesus has just upped the anti in the Mary v Jesus Appearathon. By the way, wasn’t it supposed to be Mary’s turn?

    Hi, Scott. I read your blog now and then and I have a gold mine of a clip for you. But first, an introduction. I’m a music student in college and in one of my singing classes we watched this video that will soon likely be viral, I even heard about it on the radio today:

    It’s quite funny and I was showing it to some other people when we decided to watch some of this guy’s other videos. That’s when we stumbled upon this, a video so amazingly mind-blowing that I’m not even going to describe it. Just watch. Words are not enough.

    If you notice, many of his favorite videos on his profile page feature Joel Osteen. There’s yer problem.

    I’m convinced this guy is the greatest comedic mind of our generation.

      I’m not completely convinced this isn’t some sort of hoax myself, but regardless, it’s very funny.

    Hey Scott,
    Visiting for the first time and wanted to see what you thoughts were on my interpretation of THE OUR FATHER.
    I see it as a letter from a kid who is away at summer camp. His Dad sent him there because of the same reasons parents choose to send their kids away: getting them out of the bubble at home in order to gain self discovery and growth. The parent is living vicariously on the loved one’s feedback of recognizing beauty and wonder, moments of fun & anxiety. Most importantly; hearing the kid say for the first time on how much they miss Him and how they now appreciate Him sending them away to do all these different forms of (re)creation. How they can’t wait to show Him what they’ve learned when they get home… If the parent had done nothing, we’d have bored, stymied kids slouching and whining around the house all summer. It’s what makes heaven better…

      Well, I don’t think it would pass the test of the sensus literalis, but it could be patristic in an allegorical sense as long as you didn’t try to take the allegory too far.

        Somebody we follow spoke the same way….

          er…I meant Jesus spoke more in the figurative than the mode you just employed ( which is OK, as long as there is a good WIKIPEDIA geek out there that specializes in medieval hermeneutics)

    Another Jesus sighting but this one looks more like a Simpsons caricature of Jesus. There will be no shrine though, her son ate Jesus!,23739,26518163-5013016,00.html

    Have a great Christmas Scott,

    Hi Scott,

    after hearing Scott Roeder’s testimony in the murder trial of Dr. George Tiller, I think his best defense would have been to claim that Pat Robertson and the 700 Club are responsible for forcing Mr. Roeder to commit murder. He claims he became a “born again Christian” after watching an episode of the 700 club back in 1992. Any thoughts? 🙂

    Dear Scott,

    I’m so glad I found your blog.
    You’re exactly who we need to help get the word out about two amazing women who are raising money for orphans by running 50 miles in 50 states – the Running Hope Through America project.

    I’m friends with Lisa Smith Batchen, the ultra-marathon runner and Sister Mary Beth Lloyd, the Catholic nun who are at the core of Running Hope Through America effort. CNN did a story on them that you can watch here (

    Lisa has already run two thirds of her 2500-mile journey across the US, raising money for the Orphan Foundation of America, AIDS Orphans Rising and Caring House Project. As a mother of five children I feel like I’m running and running to get it all done, but she is literally running and running! 50 miles in every state, no matter the conditions, and she’s doing it all for the children. The woman is an angel on earth.

    I’ve created the Trinity Cross as a result of my faith in miracles and my devotion to family and God. Lisa is wearing a Trinity Cross on her run. In an effort to support Lisa and her team, we are asking people to make an $80 donation via this page. Anyone who donates $80 or more will receive a Trinity Cross as a memento of Lisa’s effort to bring Hope to orphans.

    When you know that a mere six cents a day can feed a hungry child, any amount will make a difference. Imagine –with an $80 donation more than 1300 children could be fed.
    Please email me and let me know how you can help spread the word. I know, together, we can make a difference in the lives of so many.
    As Always,

    Trinity Cross Collection

    Hey Scott,

    Have you read Fred Clarke’s posts at the Slacktivist blog?

    He’s been working his way through the Left Behind novels week by week. He’s on book two, and it’s been like 5 years. (Frankly, I’m not sure how he stands it.)

    But he really tears into the bad writing, the bad theology (possibly not the right word), etc. You might enjoy it.

    Well, I´ve just finished to see a commentary on portuguese telelevision about Jeremiah.
    After this. I have read on scotteriology.wordpress the comments made.
    After all, it seems to me that while some deep attempts to bring up to us the true, about biblical story, is needs to deep strong studies on the Bible. Only after this we can discuss this point of view.

    I met a young lady at my church in Austin. We dated seven months and I dissolved the relationship. The young lady and her family are 27 year members of the church. The family is wealthy and donated large sums of money to the church over the years.

    I continued to attend the church weekly on Sunday morning and Wednesday night. I had no contact with the young lady or her family. The young lady and her mother contacted the senior pastor and threatened to depart the church unless I was removed.

    I was recently called by the Senior Pastor to have a meeting in his office. Upon arrival at the Pastors office, two additional pastors were invited to the meeting. I was informed I could no longer attend the church because it was “uncomfortable” for the women I dated and her mother. No issues of harassment or intimidation on my part.

    I was informed if I attended church Sunday morning; I would be arrested for trespass.

    Seeking guidance and assistance.

    May God Bless,

    Prof Domman
