Twenty-Five Bloggers in One Sentence Each

Many people don't have the time to read more than one or two bloggers on a regular basis. But, it turns out, you don't really need to. Most of us say the same thing over and over again, with the incidentals tweaked according to the latest kerfuffle, as per the maxim, “if people don’t know what your passion is, you don’t have one.” So here, for the time-constrained among you, is a summary of what the major blogs I read (excluding the academic theology ones, which vary a bit more) say in virtually every post. You'll notice that the final entry is blank - hence the provision of a comments section ...
