A Christian checks out Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

The impact that Saul Alinksy’s ideology had in the thinking of the man currently occupying the office of the presidency, one Barack Hussein Obama, is well documented.  Thus, I will not document it myself, and submit the reader to Google.

Having only read excerpts of Alinksy’s Rules for Radicals, I was pleased to have the opportunity to sit down and read it for myself in its entirety.  Knowing how influential Alinksy was for the young Obama (and many others who now occupy seats of power) I am more worried than I was before now that I’ve actually read … continue reading...

gun control needed to stem abortionist killings in churches

It has been noted that Dr. Tiller was gunned down in his church.  It is a wonder that no one has proposed the obvious:  more gun control is necessary.  Allow me to be the first to call for it publicly.

The first thing we need to do is make it illegal to have guns in churches in Kansas.

Then we need to make it into a crime to single out abortionists for murder.  We should tack it onto the Hate Crimes legislation coming down the pike.  There is nothing worse than hate inspired murder.… 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. Lewis’s The Abolition of Man.

In summary, the … continue reading...

Legislating Morality is For the Birds- Walmart Tramplers not to be Deterred by Laws

By now have we all heard about the tragic incident on ‘Black Friday’ where a Wal-Mart worker was trampled to death in the early morning hour?  Predictably, New York legislators aim to prevent another occurence by…. passing a law.  Here is one article describing the effort.

I just want to ask these Democratic New York lawmakers if they think it is worthwhile to create a new law for every variation on human misconduct?  In their defense, the habit of passing laws after isolated incidents is common throughout the land.  One of the more recent examples of note is the passing … continue reading...

Liberal Outcry: Judicial Activism on the DC Gun Ban

Already I’m seeing and hearing reactions to today’s Supreme Court tossing of the DC gun ban saying that this is conservative judicial activism.  As I understand it (I haven’t read the decisions myself), even the dissent is making that accusation.

I don’t agree, personally.  I believe that the ruling was constructionist (which makes me wonder why Kennedy went with it) but let’s assume it was judicial activism.  Is this not then an illustration about the foolishness of a judicial system that is allowed to deviate at will from the words on the paper?  There is no right to an abortion … continue reading...

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 thought would be relevant here.  You can read the other four questions and answers at the Birth Pangs site.  Here, reprinted, is question five and my answer:

Why pick a post-nuclear war setting to explore these themes:  first, the theme of human virtue and fortitude, … continue reading...

Texas ‘Polygamists’ have rights too?

I am gently informed by Mormons that the Mormon-like polygamist community in Texas are not Mormons.  Read their arguments and my initial post on this subject here.

———-

So, a Texas court has ruled that the State acted inappropriately as it extricated more than 400 children from the Texas polygamist compound.  Here are two articles that discuss the matter:

http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=080522213014.gw8y4mb6&show_article=1

That article contains this comment which is consistent with my earlier post, which takes issue with the hypocrisy involved:

“The Department conceded at the hearing that teenage pregnancy, by itself, is not a reason to remove children from continue reading...
