Gratuitous TBTE, with links

Taken last week. Time to catch up on some links that I’ve found interesting:

The Velvet Reformation, about Rowan.
Related: Why Christians should support gay marriage.
Rowan’s speech on the environment, which I don’t think I agreed with but need to do a more detailed analysis, hopefully before the eschaton.
A strong family and a small state belong together.
The financial crisis does have a conservative solution.
After capitalism.
A defence of Pope Benedict on contraception.
There is no rise in sea levels.
One of the very clever people who are sceptical of AGW.
A farm for the future.
Scientist contracts Ebola.
And finally a story that put a smile on my face: the Lego renaissance.
