Two Celebrate Capitalism ™ project leaders quit

I recently received an email from 2 long-time Australian supporters of the Celebrate Capitalism campaign informing me that they are quitting because the Melbourne Capitalism Award ™ 2006 was given to an “anti-capitalist”.

They were referring to Pastor Daniel Nalliah of Catch The Fire Christian Ministry.

I’ve written twice to the former project leaders to provide evidence that proves that Daniel Nalliah is an “anti-capitalist” but have not yet received any response.

SOLID VOX: New interviews recorded

This week, new SOLID VOX show, The Darby Report (with Michael Darby) recorded its first interview.

PRODOS Worldwide recorded two new interviews also.

These aren’t yet online. I’m hoping to get them online by tonight.

I doubled the space available for mp3 files on the SOLID VOX server (a subset of the PRODOS server). There is now 1 GB available for this project. About 600 MB have already been used.

Researching Islamic canonical texts

This last couple of weeks I’ve spent quite a bit of time studying key Islamic texts and commentaries on these to come to a conclusion on whether Islam is in fact a “Religion of Peace” and whether there is any room for “Ijtihad”.

I’ll provide further details in a later post.
