Beliefs have become the new status symbol.  You don’t have to act on those beliefs in order to display your high social status.  You just have to signal your acceptance of those beliefs. So observes Rob Henderson in ‘Luxury beliefs’ are the latest status symbol for rich Americans. In the past, upper-class Americans used to display their social status with luxury goods. Today, they do it with luxury beliefs. People care a lot about social status. In fact, research indicates that… Read more

Racism, as manifested by slavery, has been described as America’s Original Sin.  But is racism the essence of America, the distinguishing characteristic of our history, our culture, and our national identity? Some of our presidential candidates suggest that it is.  “This country, though we would like to think otherwise,” said Beto O’Rourke, “was founded on racism, has persisted through racism, and is racist today.”  Bernie Sanders has said much the same thing. But the New York Times is taking this… Read more

The New York City medical examiner issued this ruling about the death of billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein:  “Cause: Hanging. Manner: Suicide.” The various questions surrounding his death were not answered–including the broken hyoid bone, which is usually  considered forensic evidence for strangulation instead of hanging–leading to plans, particularly on the part of Epstein’s lawyers, for new investigations. For the most part, though, the news media has been accepting the official accounts at face value, labeling concerns that Epstein might… Read more

President Trump has reportedly asked his aides to look into what it would take to buy Greenland.  Though some White House staffers have said that Trump was not really being serious, the president’s top economic advisor Larry Ludlow said that the administration is indeed interested in purchasing the world’s largest island. The news of the president’s interest in this kind of real estate deal has prompted incredulity and indignation, with Trump being accused of megalomania and colonialism.  Greenlanders and Denmark,… Read more

Many Christians lose their faith not because of a spiritual crisis or intellectual doubts but because they cannot handle the social pressure often exerted against believers.  When they encounter opposition to Christianity from their friends, their colleagues, or the social set they aspire to, instead of holding on to or contending for their faith, they give it up.  It follows that Christians today, especially young people, need from the church not only catechesis but fortification. So says David French in… Read more

Pro-abortion activists are trying to associate pro-lifers with white supremacists!  But this libel has it exactly wrong.  White supremacists actually tend to be in favor of abortion. You have got to read Alexandra Desanctis, as she explodes the pro-abortion lies and sets the record straight. She quotes a tweet from Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe: White Supremacists oppose abortion because they fear it’ll reduce the number of white infants and thus contribute to what they fear as non-white “replacement.” Never underestimate the… Read more

In states that have legalized assisted suicide and voluntary euthanasia, virtually all of the people who have “taken advantage” of these laws by having themselves executed by their doctors are affluent white people.  Hardly any blacks or Hispanics want to be euthanized.  This has elite opinion concerned and seeking ways to bring diversity to the death hospitals. In his article Assisted Suicide Is a White Privilege Policy, Wesley J. Smith notes that in California, which has recently legalized assisted suicide, 88%… Read more

I think some people don’t really believe me when I talk about postmodernist relativism and how far it is going.  We are getting some textbook examples as our political discourse heats up. Recently, when something Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) said was shot down by fact checkers, she responded: “There’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.” Notice that while postmodernists today are relativists, they can still be highly moralistic.  But many… Read more

Wealthy sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his high security cell, where he was in federal custody awaiting trial for trafficking adolescent girls.  He was reportedly found hanging by his neck.  Authorities called it a suicide. This was no doubt good news to a number of politicians, magnates, scientists, and celebrities who were guests on his private island and his aircraft known as the “Lolita Express.”  Epstein’s death came just as more information about his depravities was starting… Read more

The perpetrators of the last three mass shootings had different ideologies, it turns out–a white supremacist in El Paso, a leftist in Dayton, a social Darwinist in Gilroy.  But what they have in common is that they were all white men under 25 described as “loners.” How does the Church do in reaching and ministering to individuals like this?  Youth Groups tend to be oriented to fun-and-fellowship for joiners, rather than introverts and troubled brooders.  Can churches do anything for… Read more
