America: The Land Where Life…

…is patently offensive. Such moments remind me that the real love of country, like the love of God, cannot be predicated merit or deserving, but simply on gratuitous love that goes on loving its object whether the love is deserved or not, and often when the object of love acts like an enemy of the [Read More...]

Zealot for the Culture of Death Frets…

…that TV is just not doing enough to promote baby-killing in comparison with all the cheerleading for gay “marriage”. TV is in the business of making money. Americans feel (and that is the operative word) deeply uncomfortable with baby-killing as the solution to their troubles. 20% are dead against it. 20% are (like this person) [Read More...]

Boy! Those Abortion Clinic Terrorists are Awful!

Here’s an artfully constructed headline: Woman Outside Planned Parenthood Says Flaming Object Was Thrown at Her To the casual reader, it could well be read as an attack by some crazy on Planned Parenthood. In fact, it was a molotov cocktail thrown at a peaceful 40 Days for Life person who was minding her own [Read More...]

Euthanasia Doctor Offers “Inspiring” Tour of Death Camps

Conventional history tells us Hitler was driven out of the Low Countries.  Don’t you believe it. [Read more...]

NPR has that urban civilized vibe…

…that is perfect for marketing horrible ideas as though you are a backward swamp-dwelling ape if you disagree: Case in point, an urbane, civilized apologia for how suicide can really strengthen families. Another bulletin from the Land Where Consent is the Sole Criterion of the Good. [Read more...]

VA Requires a Man to Get a Vasectomy

The purpose of a penitentiary…

…used to be, as the name says, penance.  That’s when we had something of a Christian view of the human person.  Now, in our new, improved culture, our badly broken prison system is simply a place of mindless cruelty. That is, when it is not part of a monstrously evil scheme for jailing kids for [Read More...]
