The Christian and the Syrian Refugees: A Rebuke

The target audience of this post is the Christian who takes the Scriptures seriously, as written, but styles himself as a political moderate.  In particular, if you have seen fit to chastise your brothers for their ‘heartless’ and supposedly ‘unchristian’ attitude towards the Syrian ‘refugees’, this post is very much for you.

—-

It was so very interesting watching my Facebook feed fill up with sanctimonious denouncements of Christians, by Christians, who were opposed to absorbing the ‘Syrian Refugees.’  The interesting part was not the sanctimony, but the timing.  It was almost as if someone had rang a bell, and … continue reading...

China Lifts One-Child Policy; Few Know It was Instigated and Applauded by Western Liberals

A bit of fascinating news, today:  China has lifted its ‘one-child’ policy and will now, in its divine benevolence, allow its citizens to have two children.

In its own way, this move is an acknowledgement of one of the greatest government-perpetrated ideological blunders of the 20th century, right up there with the mass famines resulting from the Soviet ‘scientific’ policies such as those advocated by Lysenko.  The Nazi T-4 project also comes to mind.  That program led to the elimination of tens of thousands of disabled and mentally ill people “for their own good” and “in the name of … continue reading...

The Gospel According to Gun Control

On the face of it, liberal arguments for gun control are utterly irrational, with no redeeming value whatsoever, except, perhaps, the good intentions that we charitably allow are genuine.   The internal inconsistencies of the arguments, and the complete detachment from reality that they represent, leave one baffled.  The position can be understood, however, if you lay hold of the central guiding principle that drives all the rest of it.

Let’s consider some of the strange things that are often said in favor of gun control.  The first one is one that will gain new significance by the end of this … continue reading...

The REAL “Jaffe Memo”

Jaffe Memo - Horvath - image - featured imagePLEASE NOTE: Since writing this post, I have placed much of my research on this, especially primary source material, on a website dedicated to it.  You will find even more information at: http://jaffememo.com/

I have been referencing the “Jaffe Memo” for some time in presentations and Jaffe on this blog.  It is a chilling look at the values and motivations of the ‘movers and shakers’ in the pro-abortion community, especially several decades ago, when they were working like mad to get abortion on demand legalized throughout the United States.  Far from being a matter of a “woman’s choice”, and … continue reading...

Kim Davis vs Gavin Newsom, Liberalism vs the Rule of Law

One of the reasons why Republicans have associated their party with the elephant is because the elephant is known to have a long memory.  These days, when the public’s attention spanned has dropped below that of a goldfish… literally… what counts as a ‘long memory’ means being able to recollect what happened a couple of days ago, or, at best, a few months ago.  So, it is not surprising that in all rapturous joy that gay marriage advocates fell into when Kim Davis was sent to jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses, surrounded by self-righteous chest-thumping indignation about … continue reading...

Anthony Horvath Public Testimony: Principles of self-government, rather than ‘pro-life’ principles, are controlling regarding Planned Parenthood

On September 2nd, 2015, I had the opportunity to give testimony for the Wisconsin state assembly’s committee on health concerning AB 310, a bill that would compel the state of Wisconsin to compete for Title X Federal dollars, which presently go exclusively to Planned Parenthood.  By the time I had my chance to speak, many people had said a lot of the things that I would have wanted to say, so I decided to focus on the ‘secular’ principle of the matter:  tax payers have the right to make demands about how their taxes are administered.  In our republican … continue reading...

The Abject Lunacy of Gay Marriage Agitators

I had really thought I had said all I wanted to say about gay marriage, but then a commenter said something that has made it so that I cannot repress this further.  You can see my reply there, but the gist of it is that I feel that what we are seeing in the “gay ‘marriage'” agenda is the final fruition of a completely a-rational manifestation of an entirely feelings-based movement.  I say ‘a-rational’ rather than irrational, because even though the arguments are irrational, that only matters insofar as there is actually an attempt to have an argument–in the … continue reading...

Black Lives Matter, Abortion, Propaganda, Humanitarian Punishment, and Self-Rule

C.S. Lewis makes a fine point in his essay against a ‘Humanitarian theory of Punishment.’  He argues that unless punishment is tied directly to the objective nature of the crime, extreme abuses are near at hand.  For example, by viewing the crime as a symptom of some kind of disease, the perpetrator is subjected to ‘treatment,’ which can go on forever.  Not too long ago I read of a man released from an institution who had been there for decades, when the penalty for the crime would have entailed just a year or two of incarceration.  Lewis also takes aim … continue reading...

If Darwin was Right, Disabled People Should be Killed

Or, at least not allowed to procreate!

I have been  studying the interplay between Darwinism and the ‘elimination of defectives’ for almost ten years, ever since my wife and I were counseled to abort our daughter, diagnosed with spina bifida.  We told the doc to go pound sand.  Our daughter is now almost 8, and beautiful.  As you can imagine, I am sensitive to assertions and insinuations that ‘defectives’ shouldn’t be brought into the world, for her sake and ‘our’ sake (where ‘our’ means society).  This latter sentiment is clearly eugenic in nature–not that any of the people who … continue reading...

The Homosexual Manifesto: Satire BECAUSE WE SAID SO!

[Update 3/27/2018: A couple of years after writing this, in a book written by gays about how to promote the gay agenda, this Michael Swift piece is referenced, with no hint that the Swift piece was satire.  If anything, the assumption seems to be that the Swift piece was representative of militant gay activism which does not help the cause.  See my review of the book, “After the Ball” here.  Scroll down to the quote in question which begins, “The above, cited in the Boston Herald (February 25, 1988)” … ]

While doing some research in response to … continue reading...

The Little Black Book: How to be Gay without Killing Yourself and Others

As I write, Indiana is taking a lot of guff over the passage of a law that would protect religious conscience.  Per the playbook, the activists are out in force with their bullying techniques.  Despite the fact that the people of Indiana have spoken through their elected representatives, using above board legal processes, we can expect that–per the playbook–a handful of judges will be brought to bear on the question, and it will probably be overturned.  The fact that many other states have similar legislation, and the Federal government has had its own version for 20 years (signed by Bill … continue reading...

The Drone Wars: Introduction

Your first inclination when I refer to ‘the drone wars’ is probably to the unmanned (but sometimes armed) aerial vehicles that are clogging air spaces and the public imagination, but in fact this is the title of a new series that I will be working on inspired slightly from the Star Wars episode, The Clone Wars, and inspired more seriously from those first unmanned (but definitely armed) aerial ‘vehicles’ we call bees.   While the ‘drone’ bees do not quite fit the analogy I intend to ultimately draw, the overall social structure of life in the bee hive do, what with … continue reading...

White Christian Males Gun Down French Journalists that Mocked Jesus: 12 DEAD

The above would have been the headline throughout the universe if, in fact, white Christian males slaughtered French journalists that had mocked Jesus.

Instead, we are faced once again with the utterly bizarre hesitancy of the Obama White House to forthrightly describe what has just happened at Charlie Hebdo ‘terrorism.’   Then the statement is released, and there is no mention of the perpetrators or their purpose and aims.

Many Obama-watchers may be able to produce some plausible explanations for behavior that seems utterly inexplicable in a sane universe.  It may be, for example, that Obama views the Islamic world … continue reading...

Why 5th Graders Should Have Anal Sex and Other Arguments for Abstinence

Presently making its rounds on social media is an article describing the shock parents had in Chicago to discover instructions on how to have safe anal sex and other sexual activities… designed for fifth graders. According to the article, “CPS says the material was mistakenly put in the presentation and is not intended to be part of the curriculum.”

Since the material is hosted on one of their elementary school websites and plainly described as being for fifth graders, this seems to me to be unlikely.  However, that is an issue for the good citizens of Chicago to explore.  I … continue reading...
