Second Coming of Osama Bin Laden

osama bin laden

In a CBS News interview yesterday, U.S. President Barak Obama rejected releasing grisly death pictures of the al-Qaida leader Osama Bin Laden, saying,

“We don’t trot this stuff out as trophies… The fact of the matter is, this was somebody who was deserving of the justice that he received, and I think Americans and people around the world are glad that he is gone. But we don’t need to spike the football” (referring to the iconic athletic enthusiasm exhibited by American footballers when they score touchdown points).

This morning on the one-year anniversary of the world’s worst oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, I was listening to a CBC Radio 1 interview with Kenneth Fineberg, who is also known as the “pay czar” for British Petroleum’s US$20 billion compensation fund for those hurt by that environmental disaster. Fineberg, a legal specialist in mediation and alternative dispute resolution, was previously the Special Master of the U.S. government’s September 11th Victim Compensation Fund a decade ago and wrote a book about his experience called “What is Life Worth?: The Unprecedented Effort to Compensate the Victims of 9/11.”

So, how does Mr. Fineberg place a value on a human life?

Evil Deserves Justice

Comments Off on Evil Deserves Justice, Filed in Blog, Jeff Patton, by CGP.


How do we, as a society, effectively respond to evil? This week the B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Johnston sentenced Kruse Hendrik Wellwood, 17, and Cameron Alexander Moffat, 18, to life in prison with no possibility for parole for 10 years. They were convicted by a large amount of grisly evidence and by the testimony of their own mouths.

What was the crime Wellwood and Moffat committed?…

Looking Out for Our Best Interest

On Friday, April 1, 2011, the Wisconsin state governor Scott Walker signed into law an immensely controversial bill passed by that state’s legislature the previous evening despite death threats, intimidation, and large demonstrations by organized labour supporters. The new law effectively puts this Midwestern state’s public-sector unions on a diet of low-fat cheese at a time when many American states and municipalities are teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. The consequences of such defaults on state and municipal financial obligations would be profound…

Coveting the Sun’s Power

Comments Off on Coveting the Sun’s Power, Filed in Blog, Jeff Patton, by CGP.

They’re called the Fukushima Fifty. This is a relatively small group of lower to mid-level managers, technicians, firemen, and electrical workers who are struggling to stop a nuclear disaster at the earthquake and tsunami-damaged Fukushima Dai-Ichi power plant. The Fukushima Fifty were left holding the bag for the political and economic elites who made the decision in the first place to use nuclear power to generate electricity…

Earthquake, tsunami, nuclear meltdown—what’s next?

Comments Off on Earthquake, tsunami, nuclear meltdown—what’s next?, Filed in Blog, Jeff Patton, by CGP.


Massive earthquake, monster tsunami, nuclear disaster! I was listening on the CBC Radio One to an interview with the Japanese ambassador to Canada. He said his country could be likened to a supermarket for disasters.

The posted online videos of these Japanese disasters are astounding. One such video taken by someone who had fled for safety to the high ground behind his village, captured the event and its emotion…

The Sabbath is NOT done away with

The 4th Commandment "Remember the day of rest to keep it holy
This was an open letter that I wrote to BibleED.com after finding one of their articles very helpful. In a response to someone, I came across a not-so-great article on the Sabbath and Sunday, that I thought needed to be countered. Actually their conclusion was rather backwards from what the Bible says. Here is the letter I wrote to them:

I applaud your scripturally accurate depiction of the importance of full immersion baptism and repentance as a requirement for a New Covenant relationship with God the Father. http://www.bibleed.com/bibleteachings/christianlife/baptismandrepentance.asp More
