Culture and Politics
This section is focused on the many issues of culture and politics. This includes a variety of cultural issues such as marriage and family as well as educational topics. The overriding theme is that freedom, rooted in unselfish ethics and the classical virtues, is the core attribute of human success. It is also the dividing line between the left and the right in politics.
I do my best to not be divisive, because I truly believe that all humans are equal and incarnational children of the same parental God. At the same time, I feel that it's very important to stand up for the sacred freedoms that all humans are given by God. Thus, I think it's unavoidable that freedom-loving people should push back against political and cultural totalitarianism. Ultimately, one hopes that those individuals who support or pursue totalitarianism will change their hearts and minds and stand up for freedom as well.
Some things ARE binary. Hitler and the Nazis were evil; their actions made them so. They were not morally equivalent to the Allied forces.
The ACTIONS of Orthodox Muslims over the years (Jihadis are among that group) have demonstrated that their actions were and are evil.
I’m not referring to “good-hearted Muslims.” I’m talking about the Muslims who ran the slave trade in Africa, who invaded country after country, turning Christian countries into Muslim ones---by the brutal power of the sword. Check the webpage “The Tears of Jihad,” which documents that Islam has killed over 270 million civilians in the last 1,400 years. FAR more than Marxism. more
I watched an interview with Ballard, Caviezel, and Jordan Peterson in which Ballard stated that the United States was one of the largest consumers of pedophilia and its related materials. I find this horrifying, of course, and I feel deeply disappointed that our country’s culture has sunk so low and moved so far away from the sacred love created by God. At the same time, I believe that attention needs to be given to a different civilization that has a deep entanglement with the sexual abuse of girls and women: the global political/religious culture of Islam. This is a shocking topic and will create outrage in many circles. But it is entirely documented in Islamic doctrine, history, and current events around the world. more

Do you want to live in freedom with the autonomy to conduct your affairs as you wish? Live where you want? Eat what you want? Travel at will? Believe whatever you like and speak your mind about your beliefs and thoughts? Strive to get the job you prefer, or make a business doing what you love? more
~ a statement for all people who value human freedom ~
In 2030 and in every year, we must be free. We must not be owned by anyone. Whether we believe in God as the source of our sacred freedoms or not, do we not all agree that each of us must reject the chains of every type of slavery? more

~ Is the fetus a human being with sacred, inviolable rights, or is it just a clump of cells that might be inconvenient for a woman, much like a boil that can be removed at will?
The short answer to a “my body, my choice” woman is: “Madam, the baby in your womb is not your body. It is a separate and different mind and body of a living human being who does not belong to you.”
Even if the fetus is just a clump of cells, it’s very clear that a woman cannot produce a fetus on her own. It requires the participation of a man, even with the practice of artificial insemination. Without a man’s sperm there will be no fetus. more
Because of decades of propaganda by Islamapologists, it is now a reality that the very first problem with any discussion of Islam is that many people believe that no one is ever supposed to criticize it. In the West, one is immediately called an anti-Muslim bigot, hater, racist, and Islamophobe. In Islamic countries, one’s fate is much worse, with death as a common outcome. Thus, we have to establish why it is acceptable to criticize Islam. more
They have become almost machine-like in their agreement that the ends justify the means, that eggs need to be broken to make omelets, and that they—the special people—know what is best for all human beings. Some live in board rooms and attend cocktail parties. Others dress in black, and burn and smash and riot. more
~ This is the text of a speech given by the author on May 25, 2022, at an event called “The Hypersexualization of School Children,” sponsored by the Gray Republican Committee in Gray, Maine.
The primary messages in hypersexualization are that “children are sexual from birth” and “any and all sexual activity is normal.” There are no boundaries.
Those messages were given the weight of professorial documentation in the 1940s and ’50s, starting with Alfred C. Kinsey and Wardell B. Pomeroy. They co-authored the books Sexual Behavior in the Human Male and Sexual Behavior in the Human Female.
Their books have had an enormous impact on sex education professionals, to such a degree that we can accurately state: Alfred C. Kinsey and Wardell B. Pomeroy are the evil godfathers of the hypersexualization movement. more
I believe that humans need to go deeper and explore these topics using logic, common sense, humility, love, wisdom, and a strong desire to find answers that are as plain and truthful as arithmetic and, at the same time, spiritually inspiring. In other words, one can explore the questions about male and female genders, marriage, parenting, and family from two angles: one that starts with the assumption that God exists and the other based on an examination of physical reality—an empirical search for what is. It is my belief that both methods will reach the same conclusions. more
