One of Brian’s Favorite Quotes

She herself was a victim of that lust for books which rages in the breast like a demon, and which cannot be stilled save by the frequent and plentiful acquisition of books.  This passion is more common, and more powerful, than most people suppose.  Book lovers are thought by unbookish people to be gentle and unworldly, and perhaps a few of them are so.  But there are others who will lie and scheme and steal to get books as wildly and unconscionably as the dope-taker in pursuit of his drug.  They may not want the books to read immediately, or at all; they want them to possess, to range on their shelves, to have at command.  They want books as a Turk is thought to want concubines – not to be hastily deflowered, but to be kept at their master’s call, and enjoyed more often in thought than in reality.”
— Robertson Davies

‘Line in the Sand’: Defiant Pastor Plans July 4 Beach Service After Town’s Denial of Permit

A church pastor was  looking to have eight weeks of early morning Sunday morning services this summer on Rehoboth Beach in Delaware.

But after Robert Dekker of in nearby Lewes, Del., wrote the Rehoboth Beach city manager for a permit to perform the services, this is reportedly the written reply he received:

“I am so sorry to inform you that I cannot grant your request to have church services on the public beach in Rehoboth. I cannot mix Church and State. I trust you understand. Wishing you the very best.”

But that’s not the end of the story.

Dekker tells radio station that he will be preaching a sermon on July 4 on that very beach that he’s titling “Line in the Sand.”

Here’s the flyer announcing the service “in defiance of tyranny”:

TheBlaze will post updates on this developing story as July 4 approaches.
