Guest Post on Abortion

So check it! I got a wonderful guest post, and I thought it pretty well sums up the abortion debate:It goes without saying that the paramount responsibility of rational government is the protection of human life.  That's why laws prohibiting murder carry the harshest penalties in society.  In the English Common Law system, there are even shades of criminal liability, from murder through manslaughter, designed to discourage the killing of human life.  Human life is the sine quo non of all oth … [Read more...]

The Christian case for gay marriage: The Smackdown

So a certain Mr. Osler wrote a wonderful piece for CNN entitled My Take: The Christian case for gay marriage. I take mild issue with it. Just to warn ye secular-fantastics, I know the Bible's all ridiculous and sexist and fake and even if it's not it's old and has stuff like violence in it so why bother a discussion about it plus there's no God. However, this is a conversation that makes the [idiotic] assumption that Sacred Scripture is sacred. So do bear with me.Mr. Osler, then:I am a … [Read more...]

Why I Don’t Care pt. 2 or The Birth of Relativism

Thank you so much for the comments on my last post. They helped me realize two things: 1. The evil of the modern world is ripped out of the realm of abstraction and into reality by the fact of parenthood. Everyone who was truly concerned about the Culture Wars -- and thus could not understand my quiz -- spoke of concern for their children. Such an attitude makes complete sense: The fact of a child under your protection forces the abstraction (the pro-choice movement) to be realized at the level … [Read more...]

Why I Don’t Care

You won't like this post. Don't blame me, blame him:"A passionate, tumultuous age will overthrow everything, pull everything down; but [the present age] that is at the same time reflective and passionless, transforms that expression of strength into a feat of dialectics: it leaves everything standing but cunningly empties it of significance." -- Soren Kierkegaard, The Present Age Don't tell the evil, godless heathens, but Christians today are only pretending to be "offended!" by the … [Read more...]

Our Godawful Objectification of Men With Same-Sex Attraction

If you think these are days in which women are objectified, well, you'd be right. The crown jewel of evolution is used to sell cars. But women have nothing -- infinitesimally small potatoes, really -- on the ridiculous amount of objectification and abstraction heaped upon men with same-sex attraction. Let's break it down.First, we've got the names we call these gentlemen. If the names come spewing forth from the homophobe, the objectification is obvious: Faggot, queer, fruit -- all these te … [Read more...]

Planned Parenthood’s 40 Days of Prayer

True to their aging, crippled form, Planned Parenthood has left me speechless. Not because they're too offensive, but because they're too embarrassing for words. They've given me 347 ways to mock them, all at once, and I'm left feeling like a hyperactive kid in a candy store.I speak, of course, of a California Planned Parenthood's awkward attempt at setting up 40 Days of prayer for abortion.And it truly is an Attempt. These old folks have no idea what prayer is, much less abortion. As ev … [Read more...]

Free Speech… a right granted to aging, hipper-than-thou, pro-choicers -- not upstart kids radically opposed to the killing of human beings. After all, the pro-choice movement have the catchier slogans, and they're really good at philosophy. (Pro-life is a lie! You don't care if women die!(lol, what?)) Anyways, I got a message in my inbox today from Nathaniel Thomas of Northern Kentucky University's pro-life group, and I hope you will all spread it around: Mr. Barnes, I understand that you are a busy … [Read more...]

Is Contraception a Right?

Let's get something clear as swiftly as possible:I'll be referring to the HHS Mandate with the understanding that Obama's compromise hasn't changed the moral situation one iota.The shrillest of the various cries demanding that faithful Catholic institutions pay for the contraceptives, abortifacents, and sterilizations of their clients goes something like this: "Women have a right to contraception! The Catholic Church is taking away women's rights!"The majority of individuals who … [Read more...]
