When We Lose Traditional Marriage We’ll Lose a Lot

John Hayward at RedState writes on the unraveling of traditional marriage, sexual mores, and everything that goes along with them: …three points stand as the essence of the Sex Wars: (1) sex between men and women is different than any other variety, because it produces children, (2) children generally prosper best when raised by their parents in marital unity; and More …

Welcome to the Subculture

Well, that happened fast: In America, Bible-believing Christians are now a fringe subculture. This is from Andrew Johnson in The Corner: On Tuesday, Pardon the Interruption’s Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon were discussing former NFL coach Tony Dungy’s recent comments that media attention would have pushed him away from drafting Sam. Kornheiser said he was optimistic that NFL players would More …

Would You Invite Aliens to Your Sunday School Class?

I mean space aliens. The E.T. kind. When I saw the title of this post on io9.com — “How Would Christianity Deal with Extraterrestrial Life?” — I expected it to be some kind of smarmy parody of how those ignorant Bible-thumpers would respond to a visit from Mr. Spock (“Get off’n my property, ya pointy-eared demon!” <shotgun blast>). But it’s actually More …

What Progressives Want

If you were afraid that things couldn’t possibly get worse than having Hillary Clinton as the next president, don’t worry — things can indeed get worse than that. Elizabeth Warren is coming on strong as the preferred candidate for everyone who thinks Hillary Clinton is a traditional-values, free-market, small-government Reaganite. What’s got the hard-core progressives so fired up about Warren? Larry Correia takes More …

Investigate This!

Everybody’s calling for investigations nowadays, but not a lot is getting investigated. When was the last time anything good came from calling for investigations? Have you, like me, decided that “calling for investigations” is just political-speak for “looking busy until the public forgets about it”? Benghazi, the VA, the IRS, and now the shoot-down of flight MH17 — all cases that More …

Breakfast, Lunch, Hugs

Most babies that are diagnosed with Down Syndrome are aborted, because, really, what kind of life can those babies have? Well, this kind: (Via Creative Minority Report)

Weird Al’s Still Got It

Or, more properly, Weird Al still has it:

One Way to God

One Quick Thought About LeBron James

Since everybody else is talking about LeBron James right now, I wanted to throw in one observation. There is one reason why “Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James” debates will always end with Jordan on top. One reason why Jordan was, is, and always will be considered greater than James. That reason is this: Jordan didn’t spend his formative years with More …

If Facebook Wants to Control Me They’ll Have to Take a Number

I haven’t read everything about the Facebook mind control hoo-ha, so I may not know all the details. But based on what I do know, the level of freak-out over this seems completely out of whack. If Facebook was manipulating its users’ emotions, then just put them right alongside every commercial, movie, and TV show ever made, and a whole lot of More …

The Annotated Declaration of Independence

It’s a little late for the 4th of July, but it’s something that’s good to have in your pocket anytime: Law professor Randy Barnett explains the significance of the Declaration of Independence line-by-line, starting with: “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and More …

Today’s Quote to Make You Want to Pound Your Head with a Hammer

… comes from Rod Dreher seeking to understand why liberals reacted to the Hobby Lobby decision like the Supreme Court had just opened the Ark of the Covenant. He writes about academic studies that show that liberals have a much worse understanding of conservatives’ moral convictions than conservatives have of the convictions of liberals. He then concludes with this: What is remarkable — and deeply More …

Random Thoughts on the Hobby Lobby Case

I don’t have any special insight or anything, but this case seems to be an occasion for ill-informed people (some of whom are justices on the Supreme Court) to shoot their mouths off. Why shouldn’t I be able to get in on that? — Seriously thinking about taking up scrapbooking, calligraphy, flower-arranging, and cross-stitch just so I can throw Hobby Lobby some More …
