Ever notice that abortion clinics don’t advertise that they perform abortions either on the building or in ads on TV? The suspected response is that they do so much more than abortions for mothers. But if we look at the figures, abortion agencies like Planned Parenthood need abortion just to survive as a business (pun intended). […]
Not that I expected any less: (ThinkProgress) – A Florida family says their 18-year-old daughter was charged with a felony and expelled from high school as a result of a consensual, same-sex relationship with another student. Kaitlyn Hunt started dating a female classmate at the beginning of the school year when she was 17 and the […]
You the economy is bad when even the toy vehicles are being stripped in the hood. Feel free to comment with your own ‘you know the economy is bad when…’ joke.
You have to hand it to ThinkProgress for diverting its readers attention away from statistics which actually mean something. For example, this is what they think is relevant: However, I think this one is more telling (and more important):
Not long ago I finished reading George Orwell’s two classics, Animal Farm and 1984, for the first time. I knew their basic plots but had never read them for myself. I’d like to get a discussion going about 1984 because that, in my opinion, was the more powerful of the two. This was the first […]
Admittedly many of my opinions are controversial. When it comes to my views on poverty and the poor, I tend to come across as heartless. Perhaps it is my ability to remove my emotions from situations and look at the principles behind the ideas. Or maybe I simply refuse to view the adult poor as much of […]
This is too good not to post: (DailyMail) – Men who are physically strong are more likely to take a right wing political stance, while weaker men are inclined to support the welfare state, according to a new study. Researchers discovered political motivations may have evolutionary links to physical strength. Men’s upper-body strength predicts their political […]
Is this true? Can you be fired just for being gay in these states? The answer is yes but it requires some qualification. It’s because sexual orientation is not considered a protected class in these states. A member of a protected class cannot be fired merely because they possess the traits of the particular protected […]
Abortion “doctor” Kermit Gosnell was recently found guilty by a jury of his moral superiors earlier this week on three counts of murder. It is highly unfortunate that hundreds of his victims are unknown and will not see justice for their own deaths, but this is still shows that some pro-abortion choice people (nine of […]
Many people won’t make a tangible distinction between equality and fairness. I think this is because of a flawed idea of what fairness entails. For instance, I don’t think fairness is the same as being treated equally. Equality ensures everyone has the same opportunities. Fairness entails getting what you believe to be a reasonably desirable […]
For the religious adherent, whether we are agents created by the Almighty to freely act according to our desires, or we are under His divine direction will depend on your theology. A case could be made either way I suppose. I think the Atheist has a more difficult time reconciling the determinism/free agency divide than […]
As far as what Kermit Gosnell did and what abortion clinics such as Planned Parenthood do, there is little difference. In fact, the only actual difference is the size of the body parts. Does that really make “routine” elective abortion morally acceptable and what Gosnell did morbid?
I’d like to wish all the hard working mothers out there a wonderful Mother’s Day. Here are a few vintage aimed at good ol’ mom from back in the day, enjoy!
This common objection among internet Atheists goes something like this: Does God just not care about amputees? If God existed He would heal amputees, or even one amputee. None are healed, therefore God most likely doesn’t exist. If only God would heal an amputee (in a scientific lab, on video, in the presence of many […]
Same-sex marriage advocates routinely frame the debate in terms of rights deprivation. It is argued that by disallowing same-sex marriage that you are somehow discriminating against homosexuals. I reject this notion because it misunderstands what equal treatment actually means. So let me present this thought experiment to those supporters: Let’s say I live in a state in […]
The intellectual high ground: The other day someone asked me seriously what I believe in. I’ve always been very critical of all religions and never taken them serious even when I was a kid forced to go to church. So I’m opening this up for all of you. Here’s what I believe: All religion is […]
I’m uncertain if the public has been so saturated with the politically correct version of Islam, or if they are simply unfamiliar with the “Religion of Peace‘s” calls to violence that other religions lack. Now, it’s not that all Muslims are terrorists mind you; just that virtually all terrorists are Muslim. There is a scarcity […]
I recall back to a bible study I attended a few years back where the topic of providence, or God’s active planning and action in our lives arose. I don’t discount the idea that God does have plans and does act on them, but I’m always hesitant to assign any particular event to divine intervention. […]
In a previous post Atticus, a guest poster to this site, argued in favor of same-sex marriage as it relates to property rights. This is my response. Atticus begins: Marriage is defined as between a man and a woman. That’s what the law tells us. So what about two individuals of the same sex? Why […]
The marginalization of Christianity and Christians in public schools has been gaining acceptance over the years. The blame can be laid squarely at the feet of Christians who somehow got the idea that they shouldn’t involve themselves in the public or political arena. Now they are fighting an uphill battle. People cheer for bullies like […]
