One of the more amusing tricks in American politics is when progressive libertines call themselves “libertarians” or confuse their sexual self-indulgence with a “strong libertarian streak.”

Top Eight Ways Other People Pay for Your Sexual Adventures

One of the most spiritually, culturally, and politically consequential lies of the modern era is the founding lie of the sexual revolution: “What consenting adults do with their own bodies is nobody’s business but theirs.” [Read more...]

Are We Becoming a Nation of Cowards?

Over at NRO, I read about the sad and ugly denouement of the Penn State football scandal — the scandal where a former football player didn’t have the courage to seize an elderly child rapist he caught in the act, where a football legend didn’t have the courage to even ban an old friend from campus, and where administrators looked the other way rather than confront ugly truths.  It’s just one story, yes, but there are many other stories.

We have a cultural “elite” that doesn’t merely shun wartime military service (“shunning” would at least indicate they gave it a moment’s thought), the possibility never even crosses their mind.  And so, in a nation of more than 300 million, far fewer than 1% have risked life and limb in our fight against a great evil.

As the Catholic Church stands united against the HHS mandate, filing lawsuit after lawsuit, vanishingly few Protestant institutions — in a land where Protestants far outnumber Catholics — have done anything more than issue strongly-worded statements.  “We’re all Catholics now?”  Hardly.  If we were all Catholics now, the Obama administration would confront a true tidal wave of litigation and opposition.

Homosexuality, Morality, and Talladega Nights Theology

As happens virtually every time Nancy (or anyone) strikes back against the relentless and pervasive pop culture celebration of all things gay, the comment board (and Facebook) have exploded with accusations that she’s judgmental, she’s arrogant, and that she’s just downright un-Christian.  Jesus wouldn’t judge homosexual sex, after all.

It’s in these contentious times that I do what culturally-concerned Christians should do — turn to Will Ferrell for insight.  And insight he brings us:

Yes, it’s the legendary “dear Lord Baby Jesus” scene, where Ricky Bobby prays to the Jesus he likes best, which of course triggers an intensely thought-provoking discussion: [Read more...]

Mila Kunis, Marines, Communism, and a Random Thought About Sex

Conservatives are in love with Mila Kunis — and for good reason.  First, she’s standing by her (Marine) man and attending the Marne Corps Ball with Sgt. Scott Moore:

Next, GQ asked her about sex, and she not only hit the answer out of the park, she also threw in a blast at communism:

GQ: Your new movie is called Friends with Benefits. Ever been in one of those relationships?

Mila Kunis: Oy. I haven’t, but I can give you my stance on it: It’s like communism—good in theory, in execution it fails. Friends of mine have done it, and it never ends well. Why do people put themselves through that torture?

Taking shot at casual sex and commies?  What’s not to love?

On a more serious note, I do think we’ll reach a point where the sexual revolution will run its course.  With traditional sexual morality routed from virtually every influential cultural bastion (including large chunks of the church), millions of young people are growing up without any regard for the mores of generations past.  In other words, they’re living in the world the revolutionaries built for them, and it’s a world full of heartache.

History can be cyclical.  Is there room for a sexual counterrevolution?
