“After the Ball” Reflections: Actually, homosexuality IS a Choice?!?!?!?

I’ve been spending a fair bit of time acquiring and analyzing books that advocate for manipulating people.  Not, as you might be thinking, so I can manipulate people, but because I find manipulation to be disgusting, vile behavior.  It is prima facie evidence of that the manipulator is a bad actor.  Bad actors should be opposed.  This puts me in opposition to people like Bernays, who believes that manipulation is necessary in a democracy.  Or Alinsky, who reveled in it.  And plenty of others, I am afraid to say.

In modern times, the manipulator (eg., ‘change agent’) is applauded and … continue reading...

Solving the Islamicist Problem Once and For All, Part 5: Who Are You?

When I was a professional church worker I constantly raised this question:  “Who are you?” and attempted to instill in each person this answer:  “I am a unique child of God, full of potential, and my life is hidden in Christ.”

Life experience has taught me that there is power in this identity.  I have actually witnessed a person turn away from killing themselves as they let it sink in.  The question of ‘Who are we?’, in a word, of our identity, is of vast importance.  It is not a made up feature of religion.  It is part and … continue reading...

Dylann Roof’s Reaction to the Two Minutes of Hate

So, this whole Confederate flag issue is still out there, percolating.   It is the most recent example of Orwell’s “Two Minutes of Hate” out of many.

Let’s see, there was the infantile, self-righteous outrage against all those who opposed compulsory vaccination–inspired by an ‘outbreak’ of a measly 150 cases.    Do you know the etymology of the word ‘measly‘?  It’s a bit telling, in this case.  We had the whole Baltimore thing, and the Ferguson thing.  Oh yea, and the hapless rural pizza place that ended up on the business end of a societal pile-on to end … continue reading...

Identity, Self-Identity, Self-Delusion: Rachel Dolezal and More

When I was in high school one of my religion teachers had us memorize this statement:  “I am a unique child of God, full of potential.”  When I became a religion teacher, I modified it slightly to, “I am a unique child of God, full of potential, and my life is hidden in Christ. (From Col. 3).”

I kept this going (and still use it) because, over the years, the sentiment expressed has enduring impact.  The question of identity resonates at our core.  Nonetheless, for many of us–nay, I would say all of us–there are times when we find “… continue reading...

Gay Expectations for the Christian and Gay Marriage

Well, honestly I’m about gay-ed out, but with SCOTUS about to rule on the constitutionality of a half dozen state constitutional amendments, etc, and almost certainly against them and in favor of gay ‘marriage’, I wanted to take just one minute to consider the implications and draw some lessons… for the Christian.

On the off chance that SCOTUS rules in favor of the states, let me submit that if it does not do so based strictly on the fact that its none of their business in the first place, it is a hollow, and temporary, victory.  What I have … continue reading...

The Homosexual Manifesto: Satire BECAUSE WE SAID SO!

[Update 3/27/2018: A couple of years after writing this, in a book written by gays about how to promote the gay agenda, this Michael Swift piece is referenced, with no hint that the Swift piece was satire.  If anything, the assumption seems to be that the Swift piece was representative of militant gay activism which does not help the cause.  See my review of the book, “After the Ball” here.  Scroll down to the quote in question which begins, “The above, cited in the Boston Herald (February 25, 1988)” … ]

While doing some research in response to … continue reading...

The Little Black Book: How to be Gay without Killing Yourself and Others

As I write, Indiana is taking a lot of guff over the passage of a law that would protect religious conscience.  Per the playbook, the activists are out in force with their bullying techniques.  Despite the fact that the people of Indiana have spoken through their elected representatives, using above board legal processes, we can expect that–per the playbook–a handful of judges will be brought to bear on the question, and it will probably be overturned.  The fact that many other states have similar legislation, and the Federal government has had its own version for 20 years (signed by Bill … continue reading...

The Drone Wars: Introduction

Your first inclination when I refer to ‘the drone wars’ is probably to the unmanned (but sometimes armed) aerial vehicles that are clogging air spaces and the public imagination, but in fact this is the title of a new series that I will be working on inspired slightly from the Star Wars episode, The Clone Wars, and inspired more seriously from those first unmanned (but definitely armed) aerial ‘vehicles’ we call bees.   While the ‘drone’ bees do not quite fit the analogy I intend to ultimately draw, the overall social structure of life in the bee hive do, what with … continue reading...

White Christian Males Gun Down French Journalists that Mocked Jesus: 12 DEAD

The above would have been the headline throughout the universe if, in fact, white Christian males slaughtered French journalists that had mocked Jesus.

Instead, we are faced once again with the utterly bizarre hesitancy of the Obama White House to forthrightly describe what has just happened at Charlie Hebdo ‘terrorism.’   Then the statement is released, and there is no mention of the perpetrators or their purpose and aims.

Many Obama-watchers may be able to produce some plausible explanations for behavior that seems utterly inexplicable in a sane universe.  It may be, for example, that Obama views the Islamic world … continue reading...

Sony Cancels “Interview” Because Obama Can’t Fight His Way out of a Wet Paper Bag

I saw that Sony has canceled its release of “The Interview” because of the threats issued by the ‘Guardians of Peace’ (aka, the North Koreans) to launch mass casualty events in American theaters and I just had to shake my head.  It really is just astonishing.

A foreign government threatens to slaughter thousands of American movie-goers and the strongest statement that the Obama administration can muster is that there is “no credible threat.”  Despite these very assuring words, Sony has completely surrendered.  Who can blame them?   Not only is the yellow streak down Obama’s back plain … continue reading...

Apologetics Interview Questions Part 3: Intellectual State of the church and favorite Christian apologist

4. What is your opinion on the current intellectual state of the modern church? Some apologists have begun to heavily criticize it.

I think there is no question that there are vast stretches of ignorance in the modern church, but I doubt the ‘modern’ part of that phrase is relevant. I’m not very impressed with the intellectual state of modern society in general; here again, the ‘modern’ part is probably not very significant.   What to do about it? Your best, as you are able, but I’m not a big fan of tinkering with systems, and I think one of the … continue reading...

Elliot Rodger–Would-be Modern Eugenicist

The dude who killed 6 before killing himself managed to get his manifesto posted to the web before offing himself.  Clearly, Elliot Rodger was not a well person.  Perhaps sometime I will have something more to say about him, having scanned his book.  I do not find his screed particularly surprising;  it seems exactly what we should expect in a hyper-sexualized society that emphasizes ‘fairness’ and elevates the alleviation or lack of suffering as the highest moral good.  What follows below is an excerpt where his viewpoint is summarized, and it dovetailed so well with some of my researches in … continue reading...

Gay Marriage One more Piece of the Progressive’s Social Engineered Rube Goldberg Machine

Do you know what a Rube Goldberg machine is?  Here are some pictures if you don’t.  It’s an elaborate machine composed of unnecessary parts that requires an extraordinary amount of tinkering to get working correctly.

Rube Goldberg machines are really fun to play with, but only on the principle that “It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.”

Progressives are a group of people who accept the premise that it is society’s right, nay, duty, to tinker-tinker-tinker with things in pursuit of the ‘common good.’  If someone gets hurt in the meantime, they’re ‘ok’ with that.  I … continue reading...

Women in Combat, Men in Society

In the movie “I, Robot”, there is a scene in which Will Smith’s character is explaining what his beef is with robots.  Apparently, he was in a car accident that sent him and another vehicle, this one containing an eleven year old girl, careening into deep water.  A robot comes to their rescue;  seeing that it can’t save both, it makes a calculation about the relative value/worth/rescuability etc of the two individuals, and chooses to save the Will Smith character, who says, with bitterness, something to the effect, “It was the wrong choice.  A human would have known that.”  … continue reading...
