Friday Links Round-Up

Tea Party quotes. Elizabeth Warren. Quran burning. Here's a little round up of links from around the web you may have missed this week.

  • Can you guess the Tea Party quote?
  • Downsize to an 89-square-foot house.
  • Despite the economy and the rise in e-books, independent bookstores are staying afloat.
  • "I implore Jones as a Christian and an American to cancel his burning event, follow the true teachings of Jesus by loving his neighbor, and engage in respectful dialogue instead." -- Akbar Ahmed.
  • More coverage on Christians and Islam in the God's Politics blog, Sojourners magazine, and in the Sojo Store.

Have a safe and restful weekend.

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)
