Gov’t Subsidized Sexual Promiscuity: Obamacare?
Monday, November 18, 2013, 9:46 AM

At first I thought maybe, just maybe, someone was running this as a FAKE AD to make a point, but according to Annica Benning at the College Fix this AD IS REAL, supported by tax dollars and promoting Obamacare to Millennials. Apparently, health insurance in the eyes of the Administration and Federal Gov’t equals guaranteed sex-on-demand without babies. In case the Pill doesn’t work or was forgotten, Planned Parenthood is there to kill the little bastards. Even Charles Darwin would be appalled: this is not the natural behavior of any species, except the one that is also capable of two, not one, World Wars in the space of 30 years, possible nuclear annihilation, concentration camps, death squads, suicide bombers, and so on. Q: Name another species that deliberately kills a quarter, a third, a half of its own offspring? Anyone?

Today’s Best Quote from A Tiny Scottish Island
Monday, October 21, 2013, 12:47 PM

“A lot of rabbit pie is being eaten but you cannot keep up with them.”

This comes from a story at Breitbart about the planned (“culling”–is that Scots for “killing”?(!)) of thousands of rabbits on the tiny Scottish Island of Canna in the Inner Hebrides. (Is Scotland the only place that has tiny islands? I rarely read about a “tiny” Greek island. Or is it just me?)

Things got out of hand when the burrowing rabbits caused a landslide on the island, blocking a road for days. The rodent saboteurs behind the landslide have yet to be caught, but when they are, their fate will be determined by the local constabulary’s criminal justice unit. Greenpeas protesters have been spotted off the coast in a bright green “peace” dinghy, the SS Fudd, with a hoisted protest banner, “O Ye Canna Cull Canna’s Wabbits!”



Richard Dawkins: Sexual Abuse Less Dangerous Than Catechism?
Thursday, September 12, 2013, 2:36 PM

Here Dawkins talks about ‘mild’ pedophilia as not so bad.

Here, however, he says: “What a child should never be taught is that you are a Catholic or Muslim child, therefore that is what you believe. That’s child abuse.”

Similarly, in some circles exposing young children to the very concept of sodomy is deemed more healthy than exposing them to the idea that God created the world and us who live in it.



Another Moral Disconnect in the Making?
Monday, September 9, 2013, 2:33 PM

In an August 30 post, I noted the incongruity of banning professional help from a teenage boy seeking to deal with unwanted same-sex attractions with the legality of a 16-year-old girls have a double mastectomy because she really think she is a boy.

Here’s a story about Washington DC considering a 24-hour waiting period for tattoos–because it’s such a serious hard-to-change alteration to the body–while the same city has absolutely no waiting period for an abortion. Really? There are no consequences to an abortion that are at least as significant as those attending a tattoo?

Until this nation repents, such examples of moral confusion will only multiply.



St. Catherine’s Sinai Monastery Closed
Friday, September 6, 2013, 10:48 AM

According to Al-Monitor, a Middle Eastern news website “Taking the Pulse of the Middle East,”

In the Sinai city of St. Catherine, a few thousand people and around 800 camels have been left struggling since the first week of July, when Egyptian security authorities ordered the total shutdown of the town’s 1,500-year-old monastery. Bedouin residents of the mountainous area were forced to sell their camels, which they cannot feed, to feed their families.

Castro, the Wages of Porn & Nordic Hotels
Wednesday, September 4, 2013, 2:22 PM

The kidnaper-rapist-murderer Ariel Castro hanged himself in prison yesterday. When asked earlier this summer by a judge after pleading guilty how good his English was, Castro replied that his comprehension was bad because “my addiction to pornography has really taken a toll on my mind.” I am not surprised. Lt. Detective Darrell Pope, commanding officer of the Michigan State Police Sex Crime Unit testified in 1987 before Congress that in 1977 he completed a study of 38,000 case histories of sex crimes and “found that 41 percent of those reports indicated that, in fact, pornographic materials were used just prior to or during the actual act” (source, p. 144-145). If you factor in the number of sex criminals who possess porn even if they didn’t use it prior or during the crime, the percentage approaches 100. The effects of porn should by now be obvious, resulting in enforcement of firm laws.

Meanwhile, the U.S. might follow the good example of a man in care-free socialist leftist Sweden:

Petter Stordalen, owner of Nordic Hotels, one of Scandinavia’s largest chains… after becoming involved in international efforts to fight the horrific practice of trafficking women and girls into sexual slavery, announced that pornography would no longer be offered to his customers.

Robert George reports on the Swedish story at Public Discourse, and reprises his joint-letter from last year calling for all hotel chains to stop selling porn. The CEOs of hotel corporations that sell porn should be forced to put a picture of their face on posters in hotel lobbies with a message: “Welcome to XYZ Hotel–I am proud to sell porn here if want it. Pleasant dreams.” Maybe once upon a time, “Ariel Castro slept here.” May God have mercy on all.

Why Is Reparative Therapy Illegal for Boys but Gender Surgery for Girls Not?
Friday, August 30, 2013, 11:36 AM

Because the illogic of the sexual revolution demands such insanity?

From the National Catholic Register’s Joan Frawley Desmond:

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has signed legislation banning  the practice of providing “gay conversion therapy,” also known as “reparative therapy” for teenagers seeking help with un-wanted same-sex attraction, the Washington Post reported today.

As I understand it, no counseling professional may assist a young man to get rid of unwanted homosexual attractions. Apparently this ‘orientation’ is immutable–or if it’s not, the individual must deal with them alone. He cannot get professional help if he wants it. And that’s because one’s sexual identity is not to be manipulated by others?

So if a professional can’t talk to minor about sexual orientation (because it’s fixed and messing with it is harmful?), then why was a professional doctor allowed to alter something as fixed as a biological body of a minor?

Skylar is a boy, but he was born a girl, and lived as one until the age of fourteen. Skylar would put it differently: he believes that, despite biological appearances, he was a boy all along. He’d just been burdened with a body that required medical and surgical adjustments so that it could reflect the gender he knew himself to be. At sixteen, he started getting testosterone injections every other week; just before he turned seventeen, he had a double mastectomy. (New Yorker)

So, if a young man wants to get rid of same-sex feelings, he can’t talk to a professional, but if a young girl wants to get rid of her breasts, it’s legal for her to have a doctor cut them off? Really?
