There’s no slippery slope but we are being told to legalize polyamory now.
Politico.com featured this article the very day the Supreme Court declared that same-sex marriage exists and that it is a fundamental right: “It’s Time to Legalize Polygamy: Why group marriage is the next horizon of social liberalism.” Obviously it was ready to go as soon as the Supreme Court released their verdict, which everyone knew it would.
The writer attacks Liberals for not being willing to provide marriage Read more [...]
The Supreme Court has declared that men and women possess the right to marry persons of the same sex. They’ve used the Fourteenth Amendment and presupposed that people who are erotically attracted to the same sex and who masturbate against people of the same sex are a kind of biological minority. Everyone who isn’t stupid knows that isn’t actually true, but it is a convenient fiction to use to impose a new moral order and persecute Christianity.
So everyone pretends.
But that pretense Read more [...]
Christian schools have every reason to worry.
Some in Congress are trying to protect religious institutions, but Christian schools are probably going to face some tough challenges.
Conservative religious schools all over the country forbid same-sex relationships, from dating to couples’ living in married-student housing, and they fear they will soon be forced to make a wrenching choice. If the Supreme Court this month finds a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, the schools say they Read more [...]
A man wants to sue the Police Department for killing his dog. To do so he is going to have to pay a lot of money.
When police were searching for a missing child they shot Sean Kendall’s dog and killed him. Kendall was not happy about the way his dog, Geist, died. Salt Lake City offered him ten thousand dollars as the going rate for having the police break into an innocent man’s backyard and shoot his dog. Kendall did not think that was right and he refused the settlement.
But it turns out Read more [...]
Even with more money to fix the VA scandal the VA simply creates… more scandal.
Veterans Affairs is involved in more than one scandal. But, in the case of the secret waiting lists, Congress’ attempt to try to help veterans by giving the VA more money has backfired.
According to the Guy Benson at the Hot Air blog, “Surprise: After scandal fuels billions in new funding, VA wait times…increase.”
Congress passed a VA reform bill last July authorizing $17 billion in new VA spending, including Read more [...]
The petition to pardon Edward Snowden is being ignored for a reason. They want to teach you your place.
People might think that the fact that people continue to sign the petition for the President to pardon Edward Snowden and the White House ignores this petition is embarrassing to the Administration.
In my opinion, that is a superficial interpretation of what is going on when the White House intentionally ignores a petition and despises the promise it made to respond to such petitions. I think Read more [...]
Apple has removed a Civil War computer game from their store because a Confederate battle flag is displayed in it.
I thought Warner Brothers’ termination of “Dukes of Hazard” toys was insane (and it is!) but this is even worse. It showed up in my twitter feed and I assumed (or hoped) TouchArcade.com was some new satire site.
If you've been watching the news recently, you'll know of the huge debate in the U.S over the role of the Confederate flag in contemporary America. Many see it as Read more [...]
Justice Antonin Scalia dissented powerfully from the atrocious Obamacare ruling.
As you know, yesterday we reached the exciting climax of Supreme Court Theater: The Sequel. It should surprise none of us that it ended in the same place at which the first drama ended. Part of my anger is that I allowed media hysteria to tempt me into hoping that the Supreme Court would do the right thing. Another part of my anger is the knowledge that many Republicans in Congress are thrilled with this ruling.
The Read more [...]
A study claiming to prove that Connecticut background check reduced the gun homicide rate by forty percent is junk science.
Well, if the FBI can do it for the cause of disarming the populace, others can produce junk science too. One recent study has claimed to “prove” that Connecticut’s background check established in 1995 lowered the murder rate from firearms by forty percent. The Reason.com blog mentions five problems with the study. I thought the first one really showed how arbitrary Read more [...]
If you want to see both Left and Right perspectives expressed and debated, you need to find a right-wing culture.
David French has written an essay about his experience in life that I think many of us have also experienced: “In the Real World, Not Hollywood, the Left Is Close-Minded, and the Right Allows Dissent.”
I’ve split my professional life between two American cultures: half spent in the bluest-of-blue cities and the other half in the reddest-of-red rural South. I’ve split my jobs Read more [...]
Replicas of the General Lee from the TV show, "Dukes of Hazard, will no longer be sold. The Republic is now safe.
Just so we’re clear, I think "The Dukes of Hazard" was bad TV. It was arguably a way of reducing one’s IQ. But it’s a free country and, I am pretty sure it was as anti-racist as any show could be. The spin-off actually featured a black/white partnership, if I recall rightly. The only stereotypes I remember were a lot of exploitative sexism (Daisy) and the idea that the South Read more [...]
