Transgenderism: Bellum Contra Rationem et Naturam

It certainly seems that there is a significant rise in deviant behaviors in America today. Again, as I have said many times, I do not use the term “deviant” as a pejorative, it is a term with a distinct, clinical meaning – according to Webster, it means “deviating (to do something that is different or to…

A Little Sunday Story

A few years ago, our family suffered a terrible continuum of disease and death – my wife’s grandparents, her aunt, my estranged father – a seemingly unending flow of bad news, each separated by mere months rather than years. We were living in Scotland at the time and I can remember one day in particular…

“the Golden Rule” abandoned by Universities advocates an unjust society

“the Golden Rule” What it is?  What is its inherent meaning and value? What happens when our neighbors and countrymen no longer seek this basic tenet for our society? The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy provides this: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” This seems the most familiar version of the…

Grover Norquist: the Fox in the Hen House

PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW: ‘Compromise’ Negates Principles If you embrace the notions of individual rights and liberty and self-governance, then you must embrace and protect the principles and ideals of Natural Law.  This is because these things come only from Natural Law and not from man.  They can never come from man.  By logical extension, this…

Court Approves Christian Evangelism in Public Schools!

LAWLESSNESS IN THE HEADLINES: The Death of the First Amendment Have you heard?  The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled it is ‘Constitutional’ for our schools to teach Christianity to students.  They are not just teaching about the religion; they are teaching the religion.  The Court even ruled that it is ‘Constitutional’ for our schools…

How does Humanism Work?

UNDERSTANDING HUMANISM: Humanism is Founded on the Notions of Factual and Moral Relativism NOTE: this is a long post, but it connects many dots.  Please consider reading it all the way through.  It may help you see the bigger picture but, more importantly to me, it may help you provide me with additional pieces tot hat…

The Founders Tried to Warn Us…

PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW: Rand and Libertarians Reject the Key Element of Liberty I have been hard on Glenn Beck on this and especially on my other blog, The OYL.  However, I do not mean to give the impression that I have anything against him, personally.  It’s just that I do not like the general direction…

IMHO: One of My Best, Please Read it — ALL of it

AGENDAS: The Fascist Takeover of the Internet Let me ask you a question.  How often have you heard the term ‘fascist’ being used to attack someone?  In our society, this is a very powerful attack.  In many ways, it is akin to being called a racist or a ‘homophobe.’  This term is not the property of…

“Fairness” = Lawlessness

PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW: There is NO ‘Fairness’ Under Natural Law Posted on January 30, 2015 Now that I have addressed the principles of Natural Law as they relate to money, I think we need to address the notion of ‘fairness.’  In general, whenever we hear someone talking about ‘fairness,’ we can assume they probably mean…

Before You Say “I Am Charlie!” Read This

PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW: Free Speech has Limits With the killings in France, it has become popular for people in this country (The United States) to say “I am Charlie!”  But that is an ignorant statement.  Now, I understand that the people who are saying this mean well.  They think they are supporting free speech, but…

Are You TEA Party or Tyrant (there is no middle ground)?

PRINCIPLES OF NATURAL LAW: You are either Pro TEA Party, or You are Pro Tyranny (there’s no ‘middle ground’ on this issue) Are you Pro TEA Party or Pro Tyranny, Slavery/Indentured Servitude, Lawlessness and Licentiousness?  Yes, I understand that it is fallacious to argue “You’re either for me or against me”  — except when there are…

A Little ‘Fairness’ in Your ‘Justice?’

DEFENDING THE LANGUAGE: Justice vs. Fairness Like my post on ‘Tolerance vs. Acceptance,’ this is another post where it is necessary to read carefully and think through the point(s) I am trying to make because, as in the other post, we are dealing with a force that is actively trying to change society by manipulating language. …

What ‘Type’ of ‘Love’ is the Answer?

Before you read the title and dismiss this because it is ‘religious’ in nature, please reconsider.  Yes, it deals with Scripture, but it is more a lesson in Greek and philosophy/human nature.  I think you might find it useful, or I would not have cross-posted this one. DO YOU KNOW SCRIPTURE: The Many Types of…
