The stalwart propaganda rag for Russia, Pravda, has published an article on gun control that makes a good point: The excuse that people will start shooting each other is also plain and silly. So it is our politicians saying that our society is full of incapable adolescents who can never be trusted? Then, please explain […]

UPDATE: I have determined that this image DOES NOT go with this event, so I think it unlikely that the event itself did not happen. I await further clarifications. In the meantime, the post remains the same as it was for posterity’s sake. Details. What happened in Sandy Hook was a horror upon horror, but […]

For every successful mass slaughter there are dozens of attempts. So it is, so it will always be.
But understanding why this is the case is the critical issue. The real problem is spiritual. But many people do not believe we are spiritual, because they do not believe in spirits. And if they do not believe in spirits, they will not believe that we are spirits in rebellion. But that is what we are. Everyone of us.

The thing that burns me up about debates about gun control is the attitude that we are only kept safe by well-meaning bureaucrats passing good intentioned laws that of course are followed by all the nice citizens. The insinuation is that people who want guns are violent people; the mere fact that they want or have one is proof positive that they are suspect individuals. They are unstable folk that you need to keep your eye on.

Dan Barker’s Freedom from Religion Foundation is immersed in their annual war against all things religious. That is of course how they view it: a war. In this war, they have had quite a few successes, in large part because they realized early on that public sentiment was not on their side. That is, they […]
