I’m Erik Charter, a middle-aged, midwestern guy who likes to post stuff dealing with books, movies, music, and a bit of theology & other stuff. The main reason I post stuff is so that I can actually throw away some of the newspaper clippings & magazine articles that I would otherwise accumulate indefinitely. I live in a van down by the river, rarely shower, and consider deodorant to be optional, which cuts down on those pesky social interactions.
I’m a Christian and lean toward churches that are closer to the time of the Protestant Reformation than not – that means Reformed, Presbyterian, and Lutheran. And, yes, I know there are differences between John Calvin and Martin Luther. It’s complicated.
I like book, TV show, music & movie recommendations so if you have one, send it to me. I’ll try to check your recommendation out and will tell you what I think. I also like trivia and play on Quiz Up under “Erik Charter”. Send me a challenge.
Oh, and I’m a recovering obnoxious theological & political blog commenter who is trying to stay on the wagon so have a heart. No theological or political harassment, please. I’ll just tell you that you need to go into recovery, too. And no conspiracy theories, either.
I’m the Literate Commenter, not the Literate Debater, and I’m a lover, not a fighter. Or so I fancy myself, anyway.
In other words, I won’t be this guy and you shouldn’t be either:
Guy: “You’re blocking my freedom of movement.”
Government Official: “I am.”
Now that’s a classic.
NOTE: BEAR WITH ME AS I AM CLEANING UP MY SITE. IF YOU RUN ACROSS A POST THAT IS OFFENSIVE, IT IS LIKELY GOING AWAY. WELL, OVERLY OFFENSIVE, ANYWAY.
