“Symbols of peace have come under attack at the Vatican.”

“People break down into two groups. When they experience something lucky, group number one sees it as more than luck, more than coincidence. They see it as a sign, evidence, that there is someone up there, watching out for them. Group number two sees it as just pure luck. Just a happy turn of chance… Are you the kind that sees signs, that sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky? Or, look at the question this way: Is it possible that there are no coincidences?” Continue reading

Honky-Tonk Gospel

“Country music is music for adults. Rock and roll is about adolescence — their young loves and lusts, their rebellions, and their insecurities. No such generation gap exists in country music…. country music sings about adult concerns: marriage, work, children, memories. It also sings frankly and poignantly about adult problems: divorce, single parenthood, alcoholism, job woes, money worries, loneliness, death.” (Honky-Tonk Gospel, p 12) Continue reading

Sex, Sinners, and Stigmas – Toward the Creation of a Culture of Life

Our culture should applauded women for becoming pregnant, and celebrate the new life they carry, no matter what the circumstance surrounding how they became pregnant. We should offer them any and all assistance they need to raise their children or give their children to someone else to raise.

Our historically and predominantly Protestant puritanical attitude created, long ago, an “I’m not married and I’m pregnant; therefore I’m now a social outcast and a sinner” cultural mentality, which is horrible, and is the exact opposite of the sort of mentality a culture that embraces life should have.

Imagine a culture wherein a young, unmarried woman becomes pregnant, due to having had sex with her boyfriend, and, when she discovers she is pregnant, she doesn’t say “Oh shit, my parents will kill me” but says instead “Wow, my parents will be so happy for me!”

This may seem impossible, but it’s not impossible when we get out priorities straight: sex outside of marriage is a sin, according to Christian teaching, tradition, and the Church, but it’s nowhere near as great a sin as is the sin of abortion on demand… Continue reading

Technology, propaganda, and Jaques Ellul

“In the midst of increasing mechanization and technological organization, propaganda is simply the means used to prevent these things from being felt as too oppressive and to persuade man to submit with good grace. When man will be fully adapted to this technological society, when he will end by obeying with enthusiasm, convinced of the excellence of what he is forced to do, the constraint of the organization will no longer be felt by him; the truth is, it will no longer be a constraint, and the police will have nothing to do. The civic and technological good will and the enthusiasm for the right social myths — both created by propaganda — will finally have solved the problem of man.” ~ Jaques Ellul Continue reading

Whether ’tis Nobler in the mind to suffer…

Whether ’tis Nobler in the mind to suffer
The Slings and Arrows of outrageous Fortune,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep
No more; and by a sleep, to say we end
The Heart-ache, and the thousand Natural shocks
That Flesh is heir to? Continue reading

A superior culture cannot permit its foundations to be poisoned and destroyed

We have choices to make: Will we serve God or Satan? Will we choose Life or Death? Will we choose Liberty or Libertinism? Will we choose Law or Chaos? Will we choose Peace or War? Continue reading

Suffering, in the plan of eternal Love, has a redemptive character

If the world were a random place to live in, then earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc could occur anywhere anytime, but they don’t. These occur in places and at times that follow a somewhat regular and orderly pattern as to time and place. If we choose to live in San Francisco, we know we risk being buried alive in an earthquake… if we choose to live in Oklahoma, we know we run the risk we run of being buried alive in a tornado… if we choose to live in Chicago, we know the risk we run of being shot… etc… Continue reading

Is Angelina Jolie shilling for genetic bulldozers and psychotropic shopping malls?

“Certainly preemptively lopping off your breasts and changing your odds of getting breast cancer from 87% to 5% must feel like control. I don’t know that it’s brave but it is certainly human and understandable. But something else could easily come around the corner tomorrow and turn her world to rubble. I mean, it would be nice if life’s struggles and tragedies would all announce their likelihood in a medical test but that generally isn’t how it works… Angelina Jolie is a pretty big smoker, too, by the way.” Continue reading

STATEMENT ON THE KERMIT GOSNELL VERDICT

“Let this case serve as a warning to other abortionists who defy the law. None of them are immune from prosecution. We encourage abortionists around the nation, many of whom we know to be breaking the law, to get out of the abortion business now, before the authorities come for them and they share Gosnell’s fate” Continue reading
