The end is near, according to Metric

Speed the Collapse,” the latest pre-release from Metric, drums a dire apocalyptic warning to an electro-pop beat. Images such as “distant lightning, thunderclaps,” and “oceans boiled and rivers bled” are combined with a full dramatic musical effect. Lyrically, “watched our neighbors house collapse, looked the other way,” could sound a lot like the priest and the Levite in the parable of the Samaritan (Luke 10:31-32). Likewise, “every warning we ignored,” might be almost any one of the prophets. “The wind presents a change of course, a second reckoning of sorts,” presents possibilities of hope, and “another mansion built to last,” makes me think of the mansion in John 14:2

What do you think? Do you like it? Not? Also, I’d be interested in any thoughts anyone has on the recurring “comedown of revolving doors.” Do you think the group is alluding to judgment?” 

Metric is a quartet of singer/keyboardist Emily Haines, guitarist James Shaw, bass player Josh Winstead and drummer Joules Scott-Key.  Their latest album Synthetica is set to be released on June 12th.

Gay pride flags should not be banned in classrooms

I agree that in general, classrooms shouldn't be a place to push a particular political ideology or campaign. However, simply being gay in school isn't a political campaign. It's a recognition that a teacher's classroom is a safe place for gay kids. If that's political to you, even if the teacher never once mentions a political candidate, you've probably got a problem with the existence of the gay kids.
