Super Bowl 49 Notes and Commercials

The following is a smattering of musings that occurred to me as I watched the game, including four hours of the pre-game show. As I turned on the game, the first thing that greeted me was: Johnny Weir.  Strange, strange, strange, that such a flamboyant homosexual would be asked to host various segments of an […]

Absurdities Abound

M. Creek writes: It took nearly a week, but finally there is one thing that House Republicans and Democrats have been able to agree upon during this federal shutdown. That one thing, passed by a vote of 407-0, is that the furloughed federal employees, who have not been to work this week, should be paid […]

Shutdown Continues

Of course the facts of the shutdown are these: 1. Either side could restart the government immediately. 2. The Democrats are not doing it because they want money for Obamacare. 3. The Republicans are not doing it because they don’t want to approve money for Obamacare.  -end-

Moral Inversion

Liberalism can be considered a near-total inversion of the moral order. They may (rightly) object to criminal behavior, but what follows closely behind is a bevy of hand-wringing questions which belies their moral indignation: Was he (the perpetrator) oppressed in any way? Was he discriminated against? Does the crime represent any form of officially ‘bad’ […]

Obama is an Awful, Awful, Liar

Barack Obama, 20 September 2013, addressing the Congressional Black Caucus: (Note: Go to about 3:00 in the video to see the quote) And now we’re seeing an extreme faction of these folks, convincing their leadership to threaten to shut down the government if we don’t shut down the affordable care act. Some of them were […]

Violence in D.C.

CNN columnist and commentator LZ Granderson writes an apparent criticism of those who would rush to blame “guns” for the Washington D.C. Naval Yard shooting: And it will keep continue to happen until the advocates (of gun control) accept that ridding the country of guns is a hopeless — and unconstitutional mission — and that the […]

A Liberal by any Other Name . . .

CNN featured an opinion piece entitled “Hey atheists, let’s make a deal” this weekend. The author, Rachel Held Evans, makes an appeal that both Christians and atheists overlook the heated, often silly, rhetoric from the likes of Richard Dawkins and Pat Robertson. Fair enough. I read this article and it has bothered me since. It’s […]

Choice or Life?

In the previous post, we discussed the pro-life versus pro-choice moral frameworks. Within the liberal framework, autonomy, specifically autonomy over one’s own body, seems to carry the greatest importance. Why is this? What is the nature of the moral universe such that individual autonomy should be valued over all things, even over life itself? Even […]

Tricked Into Abortion: Liberal Dilemma

A woman in Florida was tricked into taking an abortion pill by her boyfriend–see the CNN video report here. The difficult question for liberals to answer is this: on what grounds is this wrong? –

Liberalism, as I Understand It:

A liberal friend of mine summarizes his views like this: Each person has inherent dignity and rights, and our group life should reflect this, and the particularities of each person’s make-up, including his race, his sexual orientation, his abilities, should be not only respected but should be celebrated and enjoyed by the larger collective, certainly […]

As to the Purpose of this Site:

The purpose of this website is to be a voice of opposition to the lies of the modern age. Much of modern life is predicated on lies.  These lies sometimes fall along the lines of the struggle commonly referred to as the culture wars, but just as often, the lies which obstruct, confuse and misguide us […]
