Women in Combat, Men in Society

Allowing women in combat seems to me like it could be a pyrrhic victory. In seeking to elevate women to the status of men, it threatens to deprive both men and women of unique aspects of their humanity. In seeking to elevate women, in this case I have the strong suspicion it will actually lower them, and with them, men.

My Million Words and the Road to Good Writing

It is one of those subjective truisms that a person becomes a good writer sometime after writing their millionth word.  I don’t know if the truism is true or not.  I should like to think that my writing was good many hundred thousand words ago.  🙂  I won’t deny, however, that the writing in my […]

My books and stories all in one place

To date, these include my Birth Pangs series, my pro-life book, and two collections of short stories.  Some are available only in digital format while others are in […]

Thomas Sowell’s Fatal Trajectory and Horvath’s End Times Ponderings

The trajectory of our course leads to a fate that would fully justify despair.

These are themes that I have been covering in my apologetics ministry. To counter the ignorance regarding Christianity my ministry launched an online apologetics academy. ‘Non-judgmental’ affectations are covered every week on this blog. As for the ‘poisonous propaganda’ my ministry’s Christian writing contest is geared specifically to spur on Christian authors so that they can help turn the tide from the midst of the very belly of the beast.

Sowell describes this trajectory, asserting with conviction that a few nuclear decimated American cities followed by a quick American surrender is along that path. Perhaps. Yet I perceive that the problem is that America has already had ‘bombs’ dropped on it and the surrender occurred long ago. The time for action was probably long ago. When Americans agreed to go with the whole ‘income tax’ thing, when they allowed the creation of the Federal Reserve, when they allowed the conditions that culminated in Roe vs Wade to persist. Today we reap the consequences of these and many other ‘bombs’ and act surprised, as though the trajectory could not be plotted and predicted.

Is more government the solution to government made problems?

I expect any honest person investigating the current economic mess will already know that the current crisis is due to government entangling with the mortgage industry.  I expect that any objective onlooker won’t try to pin this on President Bush.  Not solely, anyway.   My feeling as I watch what is going on is basically this:  […]

Christian Fiction Update of the Birth Pangs Series, what is Spero About? Review Copies Available

Spero is Latin for “I Hope” though for all I care you can just think of it as ‘hope.’ If you’re astue, you’ll catch that ‘Fidelis’ has something to do with ‘faith.’ Put it together, Faith, Hope, and…. the name of book three will have something to do with Love. 🙂

The Birth Pangs series is set in the United States some time in the not too distant future. A small scale nuclear holocaust has taken place, followed by a devastating pandemic. The United States had been defeated in several humiliating wars, but now all oppressors are gone, basically leaving a state of anarchy. Fidelis charted the course of one character across this landscape. Spero will chart the course of another character.

Interview question on the writing of Fidelis- a post apocalyptic setting for moral exploration

I was handed a bunch of interview questions a while back and we actually had an audio interview but that interview is now lost in the hills of Argentina (I kid you not).  I have been answering them one by one on my blog at www.birthpangs.com but this one (and a couple to come) I […]

Praestet fides supplementum sensuum defectui …

You may have arrived here searching out this Latin phrase from my book, Fidelis, the first in my Birth Pangs series.  If not, you might want to consider picking up said books! “Praestet fides supplementum sensuum defectui…”Or, in some translations I’ve seen, “Faith supplies what the senses cannot…” But I am no Latin scholar. We […]
