SFR 354: Krampusnacht Cometh!

–In his ongoing attempt to make it into law school, Bobby took the dreaded LSAT yesterday. How did he do? Will he make it into the school right around the corner from his house?
–The San Bernardino massacre left over a dozen dead, and many more wounded.  What do we know and not yet know about the attack? Who were the killers?  Could gun control have prevented any of this?
–There has been confusion about what exactly terrorism is defined as the past few days. We’ll try to help sort it out a bit.
–The New York Daily News, in an effort to show that public policy can go a long way toward trying to limit gun violence, published a cover with the headline, “God Isn’t Fixing This.” Instead, it just angered a bunch of religious people who totally missed the point.
krampus–Bobby went to a Verizon store and picked up “Google Cardboard,” which, as the company says, lets you “experience virtual reality in a simple way.” Bobby extols the virtues of the product, while Jason just wants to know if he can visit Jack the Ripper crime sites.
–Does the mainstream media have a problem have a problem labeling white people as terrorists? That has been an ongoing leftist narrative, but is it true? It seems so, at least sometimes.
–Jason wants to know why many paranormalists can’t just offer condolences when someone passes away, but instead “woo it up” when they comment about a loss. He talks about one such example involving a friend’s death.
–Krampus is making its way further and further into American pop culture, and we think it’s a great thing. Last night was Krampusnacht, and in an effort to help this piece of Christmastime culture spread a bit, we talk a bit about its origins, and how we hope to see it develop here in the States.

    “God needed another angel” has always REALLY irritated me. It always comes from the staunchest Christians, but every Christian doctrine I know of says that angels and humans are very different things and that when a human dies, their soul sits in their corpse until judgement day. So according to Christianity, NO humans but those who ascended directly into heaven (iirc, just Mary and Jesus) are in heaven, and nobody at all is in purgatory/limbo or hell. And like you mentioned, it’s still like… God murdered my loved one because some asshole went awol or something and left a gap in the ranks? Abrupt death is like a cosmic draft from General God? No part of “God needed another angel” is comforting, and it’s not even theologically accurate.
