It’s time for Marriage Equality! Support this man’s desire to marry his computer

Have you heard about this case where a man has been filing petition after petition demanding the right to marry his computer?

The article cites other precedents, such as people being able to marry dolphins and cardboard cutouts of themselves.   On this blog, I gave the example of the person who married a pillow–although I did issue some probing and important questions that all pillow-rights activists should be prepared to answer.

I find the man’s problem with the courts perplexing.  After all, state after state has voted to forbid gay marriage, with referendums, through legislation passed by majority-elected representatives, … continue reading...

The Ovens of our Era: More than One Way to Host a Holocaust

Today’s headline on the Drudge Report did not surprise me in the slightest:

ABORTED BABIES INCINERATED TO HEAT HOSPITALS

The article linked to is this one in the Telegraph:

Aborted babies incinerated to heat UK hospitals:
The remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as ‘clinical waste’ by hospitals in Britain with some used in ‘waste to energy’ plants

I had a variety of thoughts hit me simultaneously and in quick succession.  I have read stories about abortionists tossing out sacks of aborted babies.  I am aware of the use of fetal materials derived from aborted children to create … continue reading...

California Eugenics and the Devil’s Schemes

Originally Posted at the ChristianPost.com:  Eugenics and the Devil’s Schemes in California (and Elsewhere)

In Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians he makes a comment that I have always found intriguing: “… in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.” (2 Cor. 2:11)

I find this interesting, because as it seems to me, Christians continue to be outwitted by their chief Enemy and merrily remain unaware of his schemes. Of course, this applies to non-Christians, but that goes without saying, since they don’t even believe he exists. Christians, the bulk of whom … continue reading...

Support Sntjohnny/Athanatos Ministries with your NON-tax-exempt Donation

Every June, we run a donor drive.  In getting this year’s ready, I noted that my typical proviso that ACM is not tax-exempt had more significance than in previous years.

Over the last few weeks we have been regaled with case after case of conservative, Christian, anti-Obama, anti-Obama agenda organizations that have been targeted by the IRS.  Quite coincidentally, this began before the 2012 election.  This suppression has been public knowledge for several years, but the mainstream media, quite coincidentally, didn’t think it worth reporting on.  Nonetheless, despite the fact that it was all completely unintentional, there probably was an … continue reading...

When the Children are in Charge All Hell Breaks Loose

While this has been going on for years, the recent spate of over-the-top reactions to ‘guns’ in the schools is beginning to illustrate the consequences of ‘political correctness’ that people have also been warning about for years.  In a word, we are seeing the emergence of a soft tyranny, a stripping away of liberties, a perverted loss of any sense of proportion and common sense, and a humorous and absurd–but dangerous–disappearance of courage among grown adults.

In short, many areas of our country are presently run by children:  or people with infantile minds, at least.

Check out these stories:

Top 10 Reasons Not to Trust the Government

If you have been watching the main stream news, you will have recently noticed an uptick in reports about a situation that many of us have known about for months and months.  I am speaking, of course, of Benghazi.

Watching liberal, Obama sympathizers come out with what looks like disgust with the Obama administration suggests we’ve finally arrived, after much excavating and stripping away of layers of ideological commitments, to something passing as common ground.  (See here for an example.)

Listening to reports over the last couple of weeks, I was struck with the thought that it is really quite … continue reading...

Earth Day is Evil because Earth Day is Not about the Environment

“The power of population is so superior to the power of the earth to produce subsistence for man, that premature death must in some shape or other visit the human race. The vices of mankind are active and able ministers of depopulation. They are the precursors in the great army of destruction, and often finish the dreadful work themselves. But should they fail in this war of extermination, sickly seasons, epidemics, pestilence, and plague advance in terrific array, and sweep off their thousands and tens of thousands. Should success be still incomplete, gigantic inevitable famine stalks in the rear, and … continue reading...

Pro-Life Apologetics Conference: Defending the Faith is a Defense of Life

In just a little over a week, my ministry, Athanatos Christian Ministries, will be hosting our fourth annual online apologetics conference.

Each year, we pick a theme in which apologetics is integrated and applied.  Previous years saw apologetics incorporated into the arts, etc.  This year, the theme is life issues, and abortion in particular.

One’s views about God tends to impact one’s views on Man.  It is not a coincidence that people are more likely to describe themselves as pro-life if they are a Christian and pro-choice if they are an atheist.  On the former view, people have … continue reading...

Dorothy Sayers on Gay Marriage? The Other Six Deadly Sins

This post has Christians in mind who support traditional marriage.  Gay marriage proponents and non-Christians are not in view.  Read the following with this in mind.

————-

Recent developments on the ‘gay marriage’ front, and developments over the last decade, reminded me of an essay written by that insightful Christian critic Dorothy Sayers way back in the 1940s.  Here is the relevant portion:

The Other Six Deadly Sins

Perhaps the bitterest commentary on the way in which Christian doctrine has been taught in the last few centuries is the fact that to the majority of people the word immorality has … 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...
