The right to property is not a popular one to defend these days, even though it’s one of the most clearly stated rights in Scripture. It’s much more popular in elite Christian circles, and the wider culture, to undermine others’ God-given right to property in the name of some form of ‘charity’ or ‘the greater … Continue reading How Should Christians View Property Rights?
Thoughts On The End Of Roe v. Wade
Well, another article I never thought I’d get to write. Roe v. Wade has been overturned, feminists are outraged, and Clarence Thomas is officially my hero. This is a momentous occasion, and there are several things I’ve noticed that are worthy of comment, so here we go. This is a time to celebrate. Buy a … Continue reading Thoughts On The End Of Roe v. Wade
Overturning Roe Doesn’t Threaten Women’s Dignity, Abortion Does.
Well, it seems almost too good to be true, but it looks like the Supreme Court is going to overturn Roe V. Wade at long last. Predictably, feminists are shrieking about how the possibility of losing access to their blood sacrament is an assault on the dignity of all women. Given that, now seems like … Continue reading Overturning Roe Doesn’t Threaten Women’s Dignity, Abortion Does.
What Is A Fair Wage?
People, especially those on the Left, love to talk about paying people a ‘fair wage’. This is usually code for ‘give people more money, you terrible capitalists’, but it does raise an important question, especially when Leftists in the church try to use the Bible to back up their demands. What does the Bible say … Continue reading What Is A Fair Wage?
Election 2020: Byzantine Politics for the Modern Day
We live in interesting times; the kind of times that make one say, like Bilbo Baggins, “Sorry! I don’t want any adventures, thank you.” As of this writing, the election is still undecided even though the mainstream media calls Joe Biden the president-elect. If you’ve been getting your news from conservative media, you’re aware of … Continue reading Election 2020: Byzantine Politics for the Modern Day
Well, election season is upon us, so let’s get the obligatory article about voting out of the way. Now, my goal here is not to turn this site into a political commentary site. I’m not looking to take market share from the likes of Ben Shapiro or Sean Hannity. That said, we mustn’t silo our … Continue reading On Voting
Conscience and the Left’s Moral Posturing
If you follow the news, you may have noticed an interesting phenomenon. The more progressive/left-leaning someone is, the more strident and uncompromising they are in advocating for their beliefs, to the point that they prefer to shut down those who disagree; rather than have a reasonable discussion. Some of this can, no doubt, be ascribed … Continue reading Conscience and the Left’s Moral Posturing
White Privilege Doesn’t Exist
Yes, you read that right. White privilege, the (alleged) extra rights enjoyed by white people in virtue of their being white in a racist society, is not a thing that exists in the United States. I know that, according to some parts of society, I’m not really supposed to challenge the idea of white privilege … Continue reading White Privilege Doesn’t Exist
How do we keep toxic politics out of the church?
If you, like me, have the great misfortune of being interested in the news, you have noticed a major problem with our political dialogue. It is way too intense. This is not a good situation, but it is not an irreparable problem either. What concerns me most is that I see it starting to make … Continue reading How do we keep toxic politics out of the church?
Human Rights: Where do they come from?
People, especially politicians, love to talk about human rights, to the point where the phrase has almost become trite. That is annoying, as human rights are a very specific thing, not just a slogan to stick onto a politician’s latest totalitarian attempt to seize more power. To correct this, we need a good definition of … Continue reading Human Rights: Where do they come from?
