Sunday A La Carte

Most weeks I publish A La Carte articles from Monday to Saturday. But some weeks I find so much good material that I create an extra edition, and that’s exactly the case today. So here is one of those rare Sunday editions of A La Carte. I hope you enjoy it!

When Amazon Erased My Book

You may have heard that Ryan T. Anderson’s book on transgenderism mysteriously disappeared from Amazon. He explains the situation in this article. (For what it’s worth, I predicted this would happen a couple of years ago.

They are incessantly angry about something. Of course, not all Calvinists are like this, but many of them are. They are not characterized by their ability to give others the benefit of the doubt but instead by their ability to point out the worst in others.
