The American Moral Minority

Shock about being in a minority on sexual morality shocks me. Christians in America have been a moral minority on sexual issue before iPods existed. An advantage of being old is that you get used to change: welcome and unwelcome. I have seen moral improvement on some issues and a growing decadence in others. In [Read More...]

If Left Alone: What My Grandchildren Will See

Christians are a minority when it comes to sex outside of marriage. The Christian church teaches that sexual activity outside of marriage is a sin, but most Americans think it is morally acceptable. The good news is that if the immoral majority will leave us alone, the Christian minority is large enough to prevail over [Read More...]

Adam, Where are you?

One advantage of aging is knowing good music that the trendy have forgotten, while the joy of this age is the iTunes store and Spotify preserving it for you. His name was Don Francisco and his music is a folk without a touch of over instrumentation, autotune, or irony. His voice is clean, if imperfect, [Read More...]

On Being Sad: the Death of Lucas Arts

They are gone and we will miss them and their place no one can fill. Many the Christmas they entertained our family and now they have been killed. The Disney Corporation having purchased the Lucas Empire has now killed LucasArts, the game company, as surely as Cars II killed Pixar’s unbroken string of innovative films. This is [Read More...]

The Bible Tells Me So

There is a simple error: you cannot be part of a community, if you don’t agree with all the ideas in it. I am Republican, the son of Republican, the grandson of a Republican, and the great-grandson of a Republican. I could continue all the way back to Mr. Lincoln and the Reynolds who left [Read More...]

Invisible, but Enduring

Recently, Reed Galen, deputy campaign manager for the McCain camp gave some political advice. While this might be compared to asking coaches of the Minnesota Vikings how to win a Super Bowl, this particular advice has become conventional wisdom amongst most people with graduate education in the Republican Party. He opines: Regardless of party affiliation, [Read More...]

To Hollywood with Love

The Oscars substituted vulgarity for wit and disappointed expectant vulgarians with cut-rate vulgarisms. Oscar assaulted morality, perfectly acceptable, but it also attacked liberal pieties proving once again that establishment Hollywood is not liberal, but libertine. Sites that would never point out the host was no gentleman are happy to point out he was misogynistic. The [Read More...]

Avoid These Things in Any Star Wars Reboot or Face the Wrath of Me

Perhaps Disney does not fear my wrath. My kids do not fear my wrath and actually I do not have much wrath, but the notion of a Star Wars reboot fills me with hope and dread. Hope because I love the myth and am going to get more of it. Dread because J.J. Abrams is a lens flare away [Read More...]

We Just Don’t Agree

Modernity came and many of us said: “Good. We like some of that, but don’t like other bits.” We rejected the idea that natural science (“Science!”) was the only means to know, though we appreciated the help it gave us in forming questions. We thought the idea that man was fundamentally economic was wrongheaded. We [Read More...]

No Science Here

We are being told by people who should know better that making the “morning after pill” over-the-counter is a “matter of science.” Those of us who oppose this cost cutting and convenient measure must be “anti-science.” If one cannot get a cheap abortion as easily as exfoliant, than science is being assaulted! This is either ignorance of [Read More...]
