People for the Ethical Treatment of Video (PETV)

This column was posted in Christianvideomagazine.com’s September 2010 edition, released today:

Now, intellectually we understand that movies coming out of Hollywood and sitcoms do not correspond to reality.  Though we recognize that manipulation and propaganda sometimes emanate from them, we know that when we view their stories, we are willfully participating in fantasy.  The propaganda in these cases is not very potent.  It’s there, but we usually recognize entertainment as entertainment.

The truly dangerous propaganda is that which is presented as fact, especially when presented visually.   In these cases, it comes associated with a chart, a graph, and a computer … continue reading...

Dear Republicans: You are Fired

I just love hearing all the tough talk from Republicans right now going after Obama’s stimulus bill and acting all ‘conservative.’  Where was this tough talk 4 months ago?  You’re fighting a 1 trillion measure that isn’t going to do jack for the economy under Obama but you laid down for 1 trillion in handouts that didn’t do jack for the economy when it was Bush.

Honestly, I don’t believe your tough words.  You don’t really believe them yourself.  You read the political winds and calculate what you think will get the most people to like you, and theoretically, the … continue reading...

Wisdom is Proved Right by Her Children; Evil Proved Evil by His

This weekend I read one of the scariest things I have heard coming out of the Global Warming crowd.   [That link has disappeared, so here it is on Internet Archive] That is saying something.  I have documented elsewhere on this blog some other things they’ve said, like comparing denying man-made Global Warming to denying the holocaust.  This is so disgusting I almost sat down and wrote a book exposing the various principles at work in it but stopped when I thought of at least one that is already written:  C.S.

In summary, the … continue reading...

Auto Execs Drive not fly, Global Warming Advocates keep flying

I wasn’t really going to say anything about the whole ‘the auto execs flew on their private jets while begging for money’ thing, as absurd as the coverage was, but when I saw today that the automobile CEOs are driving to DC in their hybrids instead of flying this time I just burned inside with the lunacy of it and had to tell someone what I think.  Since there is no one around, you, my faithful readers, must endure.

This is just stupid.  I am getting tired of these media generated firestorms.  As a case in point, the same media … continue reading...

Global Warming Proponents are like… Creationists? Really?

I was reading this news article from the Sydney Morning Herald entitled “Beware the Church of Climate Alarm” and found myself inspired to blog on it when I read from page two of the article:

Plimer says creationists and climate alarmists are quite similar in that “we’re dealing with dogma and people who, when challenged, become quite vicious and irrational”.

Human-caused climate change is being “promoted with religious zeal … there are fundamentalist organisations which will do anything to silence critics. They have their holy books, their prophet [is] Al Gore. And they are promoting a story which … continue reading...
