To the Tribe here at Honor and Daring, I’m pleased to announce the birth of my second son, James. Both mom and baby are doing great. I will be away for a few more days, but hope to resume posting very soon.
The Catholic bishops have gathered in Rome to kick off the Synod of Bishops XIV Ordinary General Assembly. The topic is the family.
In the 2014 Synod was plagued by controversy. First, Cardinal Kaspar floated a proposal that would have allowed Catholics who have been divorced and remarried to receive communion. A contingent of bishops prevented this heretical proposal from moving forward.
Second, there were some irregularities in the content of the interim and final reports. Somehow, statements on homosexual relationships found their way into the reports even though they did not have the requisite number of votes. [Read more…] about Pray For The Bishops At The Synod
This week on Return of Kings, I wrote about how European leaders are actively working to undermine their own populations by importing hordes of Islamic immigrants from the Arabian peninsula and Africa.
If you happen to live in the US, you might be thinking, “Those poor Europeans really have a problem on their hands. Sucks for them. Glad we don’t have unresponsive bureaucrats governing us.”
But adopting that attitude is a mistake because the Syrian refugee crisis is coming the US as well. And what Europe and the US are facing now is nothing in comparison to what is coming in the future. [Read more…] about Syrian Refugee Crisis Is Just The Tip Of The Iceberg
It was just a matter of time. Now that same-sex marriage is the law of the land in the US, the progressives can get to work on their real objective—making sex with little boys legal.
It sounds so outrageous that most of us will refuse to believe it and therefore do nothing to oppose it. That is exactly what the progressives want. They want us to be in disbelief until the campaign is in full swing. At that point, it will be too late.
The time to put an end to this campaign is now.
What evidence is there that the campaign has started? [Read more…] about The Campaign To Mainstream Pedophilia Has Begun
This is not a political blog. My main interest is writing for men who want to improve their lives and the culture. But I’ve found some developments in American politics that are disturbing enough that I can’t be silent.
Americans assume that Republican voters can pick the Republican presidential candidate who they would like to represent the party through a democratic process. Registered republicans vote in each state’s primary contest. The winner of a state’s primary would get all of that state’s delegates at the Republican convention. The candidate that democratically wins the most delegates gets to be the party’s nominee. In other words, the voters decide in a clean, transparent process.
That’s not the way it works. In fact, I am not sure that the Republican voters will have any say as to who will be the GOP nominee for president in 2016. [Read more…] about The GOP Attack On Trump
We live in a world where saying the wrong thing can destroy your life. Your career, your reputation, your entire livelihood can be ruined by offending the wrong group, even if it was an offhand comment.
However, there are lots of exceptions to the rule. The first exception is that you only must avoid offending groups that are deemed to be “in” at the moment. If you happen to be in one of the groups that are out of favor, such as straight, cisgendered, white men, Christians or social conservatives, you can be insulted with impunity.
The other exception is that if you are a Social Justice Warrior (SJW). SJWs can insult anyone they want, and they will be protected, within reason, by virtue of being part of the SJW tribe. SJWs circle the wagons to protect their own.
This latter exception is on full display in the recent exoneration of Kelly Osbourne after she insulted Hispanics.
