Latest in the “Homosex is the Source and Summit of Good in the Universe” News

A reader writes about the new California law that conflates sexual orientation and activity: I wasn’t upset about the new CA law until I actually read the text of it.

As Chesterton observed, nobody blasphemes Thor. Blasphemy always tells you about what a culture holds sacred. And the people who are celebrating Blasphemy Day have their own [Read More...]

Inspired by John C. Wright’s story…

here, the awesomely gifted Alisha DeFreitas over at Far Above Rubies, tells her story of her brush with the Culture of Death and her refusal to play the world’s game. I love that she gives two well-aimed upraised middle fingers: one to the abortion culture of the Left, and one to the Randian Makers vs. [Read More...]
