An African Woman's Open Letter to Melinda Gates

An African Woman's Open Letter to Melinda Gates:

The real reason contraception is evil- is because it is First World Myopia.

Got to watch which blog I'm posting on

I was about to make a very political post about "The First Epistle of Geoffery to the Americans"- a good read and a good reminder to not pour too much time and treasure into either ending abortion or whatever seems to have replaced helping the poor on the left. And I accidentally posted it to Our Peaceful Place- a Christian pro-life organization that actually follows the advice in that epistle.

So in this season of hyper-politics, if you use "BlogThis" plugin for Chrome, remember to set your blog to the right place!

The New Sexual Predators « Public Discourse

The New Sexual Predators « Public Discourse:

They said I was mad to equate sex without procreation with rape.  Well, here's the reverse- procreation without sex is indeed rape- the victimization of our fertile female population.  And who is at the forefront of this new form of rape?  Homosexuals and women!

Somehow I can't think of this as the sort of "radical orthodoxy" that Dorothy Day Promoted in this interview, where she actively labeled contraception and abortion as they are used in America today as a genocide, one of the first people to do so.

Faith Works!

Fr. Dwight Longnecker has started A new e-newsletter called Faith Works. You can read the initial issues here. From my initial reading, it appears that it is to be an attempt to give a Benedictine approach to the joining of the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.

Most of us are good at one or the other of these- but few are good at both, and those who are, often get labeled Saints by the people around them.

Back in the 1970s when I was growing up, the Catholic Church was not so good at teaching either of these; the more formal spiritual works of mercy were being suppressed, the corporal works of mercy were being limited to charity for the poor for the most part. Well, there's more to life than just working in soup kitchens. But I fear we're beginning to be headed the other way now.

Planned Parenthood TOP program- child porn?

In Portland, Oregon, a pro-life teacher was forced to distribute permission forms from Planned Parenthood's TOP program. The second page of these forms was a release allowing them to use the children in videos and pictures, and to conduct medical procedures on them. If TOP is truly about sex education (bad enough from a Catholic perspective, I've seen the porn they think is educational- it's close to Hentai and child porn as is), then why do they need permission for medical procedures as well as *video* and *pictures*? Do you know that your pro-choice dollars are going to fund child porn?

Being male and pro-choice is a mistake

They claim that male sexuality is different, that men don't want to be fathers. They lie. The entire point in life is reproduction. That's as true for an amoeba as it is a man. ALL life on Earth has this in common- the drive to reproduce. Frustrating that drive is going to have repercussions. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday you are going to regret, as a Man, contraception and abortion that you participated in. It will happen if you give yourself time to think. There is no choice in this. Only the ability to choose to do the wrong thing.

A message for those attempting to escape the Obama Epistemic Closure Bubble

A message for those attempting to escape the Obama Epistemic Closure Bubble:

Why Obama is NOT pro-woman.

Love Jesus and Hate Religion? Count Me Out.

Love Jesus and Hate Religion? Count Me Out.:

This is for all the Emergence folks around me.  You know the type- the Christian believer who never goes to church out of some imagined hypocrisy in it's members.  The good Catholic man who won't join Knights of Columbus because Ted Kennedy was a Knight (and a horrid Catholic when it came to the subject of abortion, or even basic human decency like calling an ambulance when you've had a car accident and your mistress is hurt).

The Church is a hospital for sinners, not a Disney Resort Complex for Saints.


Your moral compass is far easier to monkey with in a push poll than most people think.

Makes me want to put a push poll about abortion on survey monkey and spread it around.

An opportunity

Clip and Send:

Mark Shea, in the above blog posting, suggests an interesting way out for Catholics in this horrid election.  We know the Democrats will not listen to our concerns.  The Bishops have pretty much stated a vote for Obama is a vote to end the public ministry of the Church.  The trouble is, so is a vote for Romney.

But the difference, is that Romney has given us a chance to complain.

A very bad chance, I've never seen a web page programmed so badly.  But still a chance.

Spread this far and wide.  If they get a few million people all saying the same thing, maybe they will begin to listen.

Why are Muwahiddun so illogical?

To get Google to erase the movie they're attacking the NYSE.

Either the "Cyber fighters of Izz ad-din Al qassam" are so amazingly illogical that it is hard to believe they are technically capable of the threatened attacks, or they are incredibly clueless on how a capitalist economy works. They need to attack Youtube directly to have any effect at all- and good luck doing that.

---------- Due to other discussions, I have the opportunity to update this. We now know this was just propaganda to cover up Obama's errors in Libya.

47% of the country are Moochers says Mitt Romney. Apparently he never tried to lead a church ministry, despite being a Bishop of the Mormons.

As anybody who has ever tried to lead a ministry knows: the 20/80 rule exists and is plainly visible. 20% of the people in any given organization will do 80% of the work. The other 80% will do the remaining 20% of the work.

Thus, in some ways- 80% of the people are moochers.

And I've got to say a man who makes *all* of his fortune over hostile takeovers and irrational debt and bad advice to the businesses he took over so he can take his cut of their assets that they earned, is a moocher.

Ok, nobody liked my analogy of contraception with rape- for good reasons, even though I stand by both definitions. But let us defuse it a little. Say that someday, they invent a first aid robot that would greatly reduce the lethal nature of all household accidents and sickness. But doing so created an artificial intelligence of such complexity that some religions started defining it as having a soul- and thus, owning one could be considered slavery. Furthermore, mass production reduces the cost of owning one to something *anybody* could easily afford. Should the HHS department of the United States require that insurance companies provide you with such a robot, free of charge to you, but raising the cost of insurance to your employer? If you were a member of a religion that considered ownership of such robots slavery, should you be fined several thousand dollars a year for refusing to provide one?

Catholic High School in London, Ont Accepts Muslims

Catholic School in London, Ontario is in the process of being the first high school in this city to provide a prayer room for Muslim worship.

My only question is- Is there an adoration chapel that the Catholic Students in this Catholic High School can spend study hall in?

The American Spectator : It's Later Than Any Dare Think

The American Spectator : It's Later Than Any Dare Think:

And it is later than anyone thinks.  But this is not the first time this has happened in history with the interface between Christianity and Islam, and it won't be the last.

The Crusades are often brought up as one of the failures of Catholicism and Christianity.  Actually they were a bit of a success, if a bit late- 600 years after Mohammed started the religion and series of empires that would remove the cradle of Jewish Civilization from the control of Rome (and much as that particular war has gone on as well, Christians are *still* just subsects of Judaism, a few generations removed) Europe finally got up and did something.  Not much, but something- and doing so stopped the hordes from advancing and likely saved Christianity.

Ok, they had some help, from the other side, with the Mongol Hordes opening up a 2nd front in Asia for the Islamics to fight, but between the pinch- they stopped Islam from taking over the world.

We can let the Islamic Reformation burn for a while longer- and we'll STILL win

Word of the day Deophobia

New word of the day Deophobia. It is an apt description of a certain generation of secularists in America who are so afraid of authority, that they must avoid any mention of Christianity.

Best explanation of Overpopulation ever

The Per Square Mile Foundation explains resource usage and allocation- and what our choices really are for population.

We would need 5 earths to live like people do in the United Arab Emirates at our present population- but if we all lived like subsistence farmers in Bagladesh, we could support a population of 28 billion easily.

To me, this is the best argument yet for distributionism.

Neurotypicals, can't live without them

Apparently yesterday as I descended into the madness that is autistic based morality, I started out with something worth discussing.

That point got utterly lost once somebody said the word "inappropriate" to me. All my posts for the rest of the day in that thread were the exact opposite of that wonderful bit of advice I started with.

I still think any form of sex that does not embrace the procreative and unitive aspects of heterosexual lifelong monogamy is essentially rape. It's more rape of the "date rape" definition than of the "kidnap, tie up this woman and rape her with a chainsaw" type, but NEITHER is a good thing to do, and both will harm the other person involved, as well as harm yourself.

But having said that there is also the point that you need to take people where they are. Ideals are great, but sometimes the road from current reality to ideal, or even from mortal sin to possibly getting into purgatory someday, is indeed a long one- and people need to be free to make that journey on their own.

Why I am against gay marriage part II

Natural Law, Homosexuality and Genetic Disorders | The Lewis Crusade:

As this other individual suffering from genetic diseases can proclaim, genetic disease means you're not capable of certain actions.  One symptom of my autism is a struggle with the mortal sin of gluttony.  Due to this I can no longer go on many carnival rides with my son.  At 300 lbs, I simply no longer fit in the seatbelts.

You can live without sex.  You can even have rather intimate human relationships without sex.  Catholic moral code is discovered, like physical laws, not enacted, like your nation's laws.  Change the language all you want, you can't defeat the REAL Natural Law, any more than you can eat radio signals.

Neurotypicals- can't live with thiem

Can't, apparently tell them the truth.

I am informed that my equivalency between rape, date rape, stalking, statutory rape, homosexual acts and contraception is something that apparently neurotypicals who want to have sex without consequences can't handle, and just makes me look bad.

I don't blog about such things to look good. I spend most of my life putting on an act for neurotypicals, acting normal for their benefit, because they can't handle me rocking, or not looking them in the eye, or whatnot. I refuse to lie just to save their little feelings when they're committing acts that should be criminal.

Why am I against gay marriage?

Because one of the primary purposes the gay agenda has is to raise children. And all of the early data suggests that gay parenting raises malformed citizens.

Ben Stein used to be able to use English better

While I agree with him that there isn't much hope coming out of the Obama Administration, at least for those of us who wished for a less corrupt regime than the Bush Dynasty, there has been plenty of change. For the worse.
