Why Akathleptos?

Why Akathleptos? Because it means Uncontainable. God is infinite. Hence, the whole universe cannot contain Him. The term also refers to the incomprehensibility of God. No man can know everything about God. We can know Him personally but not exhaustively, not even in Heaven.

Why Patmos? Because the church is increasingly marginalized and exiled from the culture.

Why Pen-Names? So the focus is on the words and not who wrote them. We prefer to let what we say stand on its own merit. There is precedent in church history for this - i.e., the elusive identity of Ambrosiaster who wrote in the 4th century A.D.

“Truth is so obscured nowadays, and lies so well established, that unless we love the truth we shall never recognize it." Blaise Pascal

Former Mozilla CEO, Shunned for Support For Traditional Marriage, Launches New Web Browser

Brilliant software engineer and former CEO of Mozilla (creator of the Firefox web browser), has designed and released a new web browser despite being shunned for his support of traditional marriage. LifeSiteNews reports that Brendan Eich, the creator of JavaScript and the former CEO of Mozilla, has released a new internet browser called Brave (you can download his new browser here.). Eichs is an adept computer engineer, but he was heavily shunned after it was revealed that he had donated $1,000 to California’s Proposition 8 bill.

Proposition 8 defined marriage as the union between one man and one woman and opposed gay marriage. For his support of the bill, Eichs was called a racist, Nazi, and inhumane. However, he did not back down on his beliefs and he has now returned to the tech scene with a newer, better internet browser. I have been using it and am quite impressed with its speed and security.

Many people read that Brendan Eich was fired from Mozilla because he made a one thousand dollar contribution to the Proposition 8 campaign. Proposition 8 was against the legal recognition of gay marriage in California. But that was not the whole issue. A key element in his scorning was that in the weeks leading up to his resignation as CEO of Mozilla, Brendan refused to publicly come out in favor of gay marriage. In stark contrast with the vast majority of spineless politicians and weak CEOs who cowered to political correctness and the over-the-top demands of the homosexual movement, Brendan stood fast for his principles. That alone, merits trying his new browser.

Catherine Corre, who is part of the Brave project, explained why Eichs chose the name:

“Brendan picked the name 'Brave' because we need users who will take a stand and fight back," Corre told LifeSiteNews.  "We see third party ads and tracking as toxic, and we block that by default."

Characteristics of the new "Brave" browser:
  • Brave blocks trackers and intrusive ads that can slow you down on the web.
  • Brave keeps you and your information safer, effectively shielding you from 3rd party tracking and malvertisement
