Marxism? No. Liberalism? No. Christianity? Yes!

Compare and contrast… Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh recently accused Pope Francis of teaching “pure Marxism”, but I don’t think he understands what Marxism really is.  Karl Marx, namesake of the ideology in question, denounced religious faith as “…the opium of the people”.  He argued that religion blinds people to their true sufferings… “The abolition of religion as […]

Avoiding The Truth In The Abortion Debate

This title is not so much in reference to direct dishonesty, but more an observation of avoiding, or better yet, not seeking the truth.

Something’s Got To Give: Sexual Freedom As A National Security Concern

After looking at modern American culture, I most likely won’t stay in the military any longer than my current contract requires.  There are far greater conflicts at hand than those in Iraq and Afghanistan (and depending on how things go, possibly Syria, Pakistan, North Korea, or Iran).  Though often cited as the most trusted institution […]

Genderless Marriage and Arguments from Emotion

Maybe I’m just a sucker for a good analogy, but this piece by Doug Mainwaring really did a great job, in my opinion, of summing up the totality of the public discourse over the possibility of same-sex marriage.  He begins: In our sometimes misguided efforts to expand our freedom, selfish adults have systematically dismantled that […]

Bigger Than Policy

  In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security issued a watch-list of potential “right-wing extremists”.  Two and a half years later in September 2011, Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen active with the al Qaeda terrorist network, was killed in a drone strike ordered by President Obama. Recently, this article appeared on Life Site News.  I posted it on […]
