Irony of Behemoth Proportions?

Monday, April 13th, 2009

I found the following excerpt on Behemoth.com, Vision Forum’s movie download site. See if you can spot the irony in regards to Joe Taylor’s dealing with Doug Phillips and Taylor’s attempt to use Peacemakers with Phillips:

VFI believes that the Bible teaches people to make every effort to live at peace and to resolve disputes with each other in private or within the Christian church (see Matthew 18:15-20; 1 Corinthians 6:1-8). Therefore, as a condition of this purchase, you agree that any claim or dispute you may have with VFI, its licensors and/or content providers arising from or related to this agreement and/or your purchase shall be settled by Biblically-based mediation and, if necessary, legally binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation of the Institute for Christian Conciliation, a division of Peacemaker© Ministries (complete text of the Rules is available at www.Peacemaker.net). Judgment upon an arbitration decision may be entered in any court otherwise having jurisdiction. You understand that these methods shall be the sole remedy for any controversy or claim you might have arising out of this agreement and you expressly waive your right to file a lawsuit in any civil court against VFI, its licensors, and its content providers, except to enforce an arbitration decision.

Vision Forum Ministries to lose their headquarters due to Eminent Domain?

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

I received an email this morning from Henry Johnson discussing Vision Forum’s battle with Eminent Domain. While I could not locate anything about this on either the Vision Forum, Inc. or Vision Forum Ministries sites, I was able to find a blog referencing a letter sent to I guess Vision Forum supporters and another website making a plea for help.

See excerpts of the letter sent out by Vision Forum
Public plea for help from FRN

It is public record (PDF download) that the land and building on 4719 Blanco Rd (home of both Vision Forum, Inc. and Vision Forum Ministries) were donated in early 2002 by the Vineyard Foundation.

Uncongratulations!

“Maxwell Smart” made a comment a while back about Google cache not showing Natasha Epstein as a runner-up in the 2002 Elsie Dinsmore Essay Contest anymore, but it was there when Jennifer Epstein had mentioned it and she even included a link. Now, the current cached page has a date of April 18th 2007 and is still missing Natasha Epstein as a runner up. Well, I have a pdf copy of the original page that includes the following:

RUNNER UP
Natasha Epstein
Elsie’s life portrays all the mannerisms of a by gone era. In her time, girls were taught to be submissive and refined, not out spoken; fathers and mothers thought about the generations to come, and prepared for them; and in families such as Elsie’s, ladies and gentlemen were taught to be courteous and friendly, always serving others.

You can view the current page:

It does seem however that Vision Forum is misleading visitors by omitting one of the runner-ups. Does this mean that they are revoking her congratulations?
