Late notice! But I’ll be on the radio in about an hour, 4 p.m. CST on Oct. 13th, 2011, talking about the ‘culture of death.’
The news article title is “Parents keep child’s gender a secret.”
In this remarkable but unsurprising news story we learn of two parents who have decided not to let the world know what kind of genitalia their child has. It is their goal to let their child decide for ‘itself’ whether or not it shall behave ‘as a boy’ or ‘as a girl’ when s/he is old enough to understand and decide. Unsurprisingly, the parents are thoroughly liberal progressives. And this kind of story is why I am a ‘conservative.’
My basic guiding principle has been that my … continue reading...
Tonight, Feb 22nd, at 9:30 p.m. CST we will host our next semi-regular “Knights of Contention” online discussion using voice, video, and chat.
The Opening Topic: The 5 Challenges Apologetics Can’t Answer.
Due to the wide scope, this conversation can go anywhere. I have summarized the 5 challenges below with links to each of the 3 parts in which I have detailed them.

What they all have in common: the belief, or acting as though one believes, that Christianity … continue reading...
This is the third and final installment of a series listing 5 challenges to Christianity that apologetics, traditionally understood, is virtually powerless to counter.
The previous parts:
Now begins the third part. It’s long. Sorry. (I really am)
5. The failure within the Church to live out the Biblical model of marriage and the family.
If you were looking for a thread that ties all five of these challenges together, it is this: the … continue reading...

The Discovery Channel MUST broadcast to the world their commitment to save the planet and to do the following IMMEDIATELY:
1. The Discovery Channel and it’s affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinn’s “My Ishmael” pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other’s inventive ideas. Focus must be
Three short stories written by speaker and novelist Anthony Horvath inspired by his conversations and philosophical discussions over the years.
Sally Apple knows how to maximize hospital profits and properly steward society’s resources. Health care must be rationed and she knows just how to do it. No one is her equal: except Dr. Honey Synger.

Not too long ago I posted an essay asserting that ‘apologetics is the answer to everything.’ Even then I had in mind to discuss the relationship between apologetics and life issues such as abortion, euthanasia, eugenics, etc, but fought off the urge to elaborate on it. Now is my chance.
You know, for most of my life, even during my ‘liberal’ years, I have more or less been pro-life. This became personal when the doctors asked my wife and I if we wanted to ‘terminate’ our child, diagnosed that morning with spina bifida. But I have always been … continue reading...
A friend posted a pretty interesting essay today on family values I submit for your reading. I liked it and don’t have much objection to it. After detailing the prominence and priority of ‘family values’ at communicating Life he makes this statement:
