Why don’t conservatives and moderates see eye to eye?

Why don’t conservatives see eye to eye with moderates? by Don Hank For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.   Ephesians 6:12 A good friend of mine (whom we shall …

Dear Secular Humanist: Please Keep Your Religious Views about Abortion out of Politics!

As it happens, many of the ‘facts’ entertained by ‘secularists’ as ‘facts’ have no better basis than Christians have. That being the case, why should the secularist be allowed to impose their ideas on us, but we don’t have the right to try to do the same to them?

I Can See the Next Holocaust From My House

468x60-seetheholocaust

You probably don’t know who Julian Savulescu is, just as your average American off the street in 1910 wouldn’t have known who Charles Davenport was. You probably don’t know who Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva are, just as your average American in 1920 wouldn’t have known who Alfred Hoche and Karl Binding were.

Cloudy and scattered rioting in France

by Don Hank   Yes, I know. Why even mention it? In France, it’s like talking about the weather. The talking heads in the videos linked below are reporting that the riots in Amiens Nord were caused by “young people.” But those who recall the Paris riots a while back know that, when speaking of rioters, the …

Breakthrough study suggests not smoking pot or drinking alcohol correlated with better college grades

by Don Hank  No, actually no such study has made headlines lately. But there is a new study on pot that mediocre students will love. According to UAB News, Associate professor Stefan Kertesz of the University of Alabama has discovered, in a longitudinal study of over 5000 marijuana smokers aged 18-30 years, that “marijuana smoke is not …

Newsflash: Robin Hood Steals from Himself to Give to the Poor!

The commandment is:  “Thou shalt not steal.” Most people believe that this commandment represents sound morality, even if they are not Christians.  Nonetheless, it seems that this moral precept is forgotten once we start talking politics.  And no wonder:  Americans have been making up ‘right and wrong’ for themselves for quite a while.   Obviously it …

Implications of the Jaffe Memo for Christians in Society

It is has never been more important to carefully examine what one believes and why they believe it. If you do not carry out this work, you may end up being nothing more than a useful idiot of the worst sort: directly bringing about the goals and ends of those you specifically repudiate as wicked and evil… condemning the communists, nazis, and eugenicists, while carrying out their work.

Ghadaffi dies of propaganda overdose

Western hypocrisy exposed   Don Hank I have been debating with a friend over the issue of why Ghadaffi has been treated worse than other leaders of the same region. After all, what Muslim leader has not shown unusual cruelty in the course of his reign? One thing that my friend brought up was that …

Building on Cain’s 9-9-9 Plan for Radical Change

I understand that Cain’s 9-9-9 plan is just phase one in a more powerful overhaul, but I am leery about any plan that cannot be attained within a single term of the presidency. Moreover, we cannot count on the legislators to get behind it, or sustain it once it gets going.

So that’s a pickle, right? There pretty much isn’t a plan out there that can be rolled out within a single term with the assurance that the legislative branch will implement it as proposed (and not load it with 2,000 pages of caveats).

So what to do?

Christianity and Libertarianism and the Consent of the Governed

This is why I led off with the John Adams quote. ‘Moral and religious people’ will continue to be ‘moral and religious’ whatever freedoms or restrictions are placed on them by the government. I might say: “Libertarianism was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the [government] of any other.” There are any number of forms of government that can work with a ‘moral and religious people.’ For an amoral or immoral or anti-moral or non-religious or anti-religious people, no kind of government is going to work for the long haul.
