The Aristocracy of the Abortion Advocates

Perhaps I was too naively raised on Tolkien, Lewis, and all the rest, but as a child I took for granted these two truths: That a man would have enemies and that his enemies would be frightening. He would, I assumed, have to muster up some semblance of courage to fight them.It is with surprise - and a vague disappointment, even - that, while I certainly find an enemy in the pro-abortion movement, their most striking characteristic turns out to be not frightfulness, but snobbery.The … [Read more...]

The Normalization of Abortion

This much seems apparent, that if something is normal it needs no justification. As far as I am aware, there are few parades in support of sleeping, falling in love or eating bread, and fewer websites in flagrant support of wearing clothes. Normal things are either self-evidently normal, or they ain’t normal.Thus making an effort to change public attitude towards abortion, as the new campaign My Abortion My Life is doing, fails from the very outset. If abortion were ”a normal and necessary pa … [Read more...]

How To Win an Argument With a Catholic

In the delightfully crunchy world of debate, it seems apparent to me that the closer you are to the tactics of the Westboro Baptist Church, the closer you are to being entirely stupid, and -- as a shockingly direct result -- entirely wrong. This is a concept towards which I have no doubt the new-atheist-hipsters-who-get-groovy-on-the-internet will nod in earnest. After all, the level of intellectual destruction it takes to reduce one's entire theology to the slogan "God Hates Fags" … [Read more...]

Atheists Disprove God’s Existence Again!

The Lowdown: A Scientist managed to replicate religious experience with electromagnetic waves applied to different parts of the brain. He goes on to tell the world that this proves there is no God. It was an absolute pleasure watching the Reddit crowd blow up over this one, and to see my atheist friends post it on their Facebook walls with such grave, epitaphic solemnities as "let mankind know knowledge instead of ignorance" and "science has done it at last!" (This time it's for sure, a … [Read more...]

Christopher Hitchens Is Dead…

...and the world is poorer for it. Don't get me wrong, I disagreed with him like all hell, but he managed to be the only New Atheist I could stand to listen to. His mastery of the English language was inspiring, his hard-drinking, chain-smoking personality a welcome relief from the cold, awkward, humanistic personalities of Richard Dawkins and -- Heaven help us -- Daniel Dennett.With his bitter, fiery atheism -- which never seemed to move beyond sheer dislike -- Hitchens inspired me to … [Read more...]

If the Infant Christ Was God, Why Couldn’t He Speak?

There's a reason for the mummy in the manger: French artists in the 17th century were fascinated by the paradox that the Word of God was unable to speak and conveyed this tension by having the Christ not merely wrapped, but bound by his swaddling clothes, the Deity deining to be shackled, "the word within a word, unable to speak a word". This is a speechlessness worth speaking about. After all, what do we really mean when we call Christ the Word of God? What Christian insanity is this, that a wor … [Read more...]
