SACRED SOVEREIGNTY MUST BE RESTORED

SACRED SOVEREIGNTY MUST BE RESTORED American conservatives and libertarians have always stressed the importance of the US Constitution as the ruling document in our government. Indeed sticking to the Constitution could restore government. Yet, government moves farther and farther from that document, and sometimes with the aid of unwitting conservatives.For example, we have often made the mistake …

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.

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.

Opposing the tyrant while drinking his Kool-Aid

You can’t have it both ways. Either you want to stop the tyrant or you want to assist him.   by Don Hank   Pat Condell has a unique way with language, as a recent video shows. Look at this delightful phrase: ” [the EU]…will collapse under the weight of its own illegitimacy.” It occurs to …

Mitt joins Obama, Carter in calling radical Islamic mob “democratic”

by Don Hank Mitt Romney has broken with conservative opinion in his statement on the Egyptian crisis, coming down on the side of the mob of angry Islamists and Barack Obama (see linked article): http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/Romney-Mubarak-Should-Go/2011/02/01/id/384619?s=al&promo_code=B965-1 Obama, who has in fact demanded Mubarak’s immediate withdrawal, saying it “must begin now” (http://www.cnbc.com/id/41377934), is following in the footsteps of President …

‘Social issues’ are related to liberty and limited gov’t!

By Anthony Horvath © 2010 Apparently, a letter has been written to GOP leaders by conservative homosexuals and some tea-party activists requesting that the GOP lay off its traditional pro-life stance. That would be horrible for many reasons. One reason: In actuality, de-emphasizing life issues is a threat to conservative notions about limited government and individual …

I Wish the GOP was the Party of No

Obama has been on a tear, raging against the Republicans that they are the ‘party of no.’ From a recent speech:

“There were no new policies from Mr. Boehner. There were no new ideas. There was just the same philosophy that we had already tried during the decade that they were in power — the same philosophy that led to this mess in the first place: Cut more taxes for millionaires and cut more rules for corporations.”

If only this were true! If only the GOP were eschewing new ideas and holding tenaciously to the perfectly good old ones! If only. Not that I am conceding Obama’s argument, here. Either he is an idiot or we are- or he thinks we are. The Bush tax cuts had nothing to do with the housing bubble. Barney Frank (D) and Chris Dodd (D), did, and let us remember that this ‘inherited’ recession came only in the last few months of an 8 year term. Shame, shame, Mr. Obama. But I digress.

As the candidate field shapes up for the 2012 presidential election there is an opportunity to lay bare the fatal flaw in GOP ‘conservatism’ in the hopes that maybe something can be done about it. Let me be clear, this isn’t a new development. The problems began decades ago- even before we were born. To help me get at what I’m talking about, let me begin with what may appear to be another digression.

Support Czech president’s resistance to tyranny

Support Czech President Vaclav Klaus’s resistance to tyranny By Don Hank Recently I read an open letter written in support of Vaclav Klaus, the last holdout in Europe against the Lisbon Treaty, a document that seeks to supplant all sovereign nations in Europe in a ploy that is increasingly appearing dictatorial and anti-democratic. To understand why that …

Christians Are Not to be Malthusians

This is an excerpt of an article that Laigle’s Forum staff writer, Anthony Horvath, had published at Worldnetdaily.com last week.

Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

Thomas Robert Malthus would have disagreed. The philosophical forerunner to Darwin, Malthus argued that there are limited resources, and competition for them is intense. When there are too many people competing for those resources, you have war, famine and a continual threat to civilization itself.

For Malthus, the pie is only so big: We must reduce the number of people who want a share of it.

Christianity embodies another solution: Make a bigger pie.

In Christianity, God takes a few loaves and feeds thousands with them. Entrance to heaven is not contingent on space available. Jesus came that we would have life, and life to the fullest. Not just for some, but all.

None of what follows is an argument for Christian indifference to the plight of other people. However, Christians should not advocate “solutions” that repress human liberty, dignity and freedom. For some reason, all of the Malthusian’s solutions do just that.
