You should include more 'or get eaten by a bear' threats on your blog posts. It really makes them pop out on the google reader.
In your readings, have you come across Matt Flannagan, a Kiwi Christian philosopher? He writes a lot of good stuff on the topic of church and state, check out this one that got published in a mainstream magazine; http://www.mandm.org.nz/2011/09/contra-mundum-separating-church-and-state.html
He definitely has some strong arguments in there and I hope he challenges some of your stuff! Check out the rest of his site as he has heaps of posts on subjects that would interest you.
Gah, your gig's on a Thursday night, and I work night shifts. :(
Would have liked to meet you in person, Russell. More pertinently, I so don't want to be eaten by a bear.
Damn. Never mind - if you do survive the bear, there'll be other opportunities in Melb. (though they may also turn out to be on Tuesday nights).
The thing that kills me is this - I'm on break now til 16 Jan.
And my religious friends wonder why I don't believe in a benevolent God.
Whoops, I meant to say Thursday nights ... of course. Silly me.
