Absurd Stories in the news

TheOtherMcCain blog often charts the paranoid delusion of feminists, but today they note the lawsuit by the Church of Satan that wants to stop laws that limit abortion. Not a big surprise, but then there is this sentence:

The New York-based “Satanic Temple” is filing a federal lawsuit against Missouri, claiming that state laws restricting abortion violate their “free exercise” of Satanism.The suit identifies abortion as an essential religious duty for Satanists.



TimBlair notes his favorite ecowarrior wears adult braces, which didn't exist in the good old days of primitive living where she longs to live and force the rest of us to live (or more likely die).

Ms Keith and her associates wish to wage “decisive ecological warfare” against… well, the rest of us, and to “disrupt and dismantle industrial civilisation,” with “complete economic collapse” as the path to salvation. When not signalling their intellectual wattage by calling for the “abolition” of masculinity and “whiteness,” and the “abolition” of the United States, “an illegitimate settler nation,” Deep Green Resistance very much like the idea of “sabotaging infrastructure” and cutting power lines, thereby leaving tens of thousands of people without light and heat.
Maybe all these types could move to the Philippines and enjoy mother nature at her finest, preferable right after one of our periodic typhoons (or volanic eruptions or earthquakes, or just hot spells when the hydroelectric plants slow down).


Heh. Pope asked by a reporter why he doesn't talk a lot about the middle class.

He says he'll have to study about it, and examine why Americans are upset with his love of socialist solutions.

Maybe he should start by reading Centesimus Annus, which is a critique on capitalism and business as a way to serve not just himself but God.

Man fulfills himself by using his intelligence and freedom. In so doing he utilizes the things of this world as objects and instruments and makes them his own. The foundation of the right to private initiative and ownership is to be found in this activity. By means of his work man commits himself, not only for his own sake but also for others and with others. Each person collaborates in the work of others and for their good. Man works in order to provide for the needs of his family, his community, his nation, and ultimately all humanity.

or maybe read the book Business as a Calling.

 (the autor) argues that business has a vested interest in goodness if only because it cannot advance in the absence of such cardinal virtues as cooperation, courage, honesty, industry, innovation, practicality, and realism. The author goes on to document the many ways in which for-profit concerns benefit host communities and the wider world simply by measuring up to their basic obligations--creating new jobs, earning appropriate returns on investments, producing wealth, promoting respect for the rule of law, satisfying customers, et al. 

The Pope's problem is that he is out of date. The problems of the third world, as I noted in my previous post, need criticism, but his answer, more government and less big business, is short sighted, especially since business is the one who makes wealth to allow people to get out of poverty.

Maybe the answer is not a NWO that abolishes big business, but a church that preaches honest business practices. You know: Like the old Testament prophets?


Live not by Lies.

excerpts from Solzhenitsyn are quoted in David Warren's essay about living in a world being taken over by a false ideology...for later reading.


"We have met the enemy and he is us" links of the day:

is California's drought made worse by ecopolicies of the 1970's?

should churches that teach morality be punished for doing this by removing their tax exemptions?

related item: those non PC Sisters who opposed Obama's mandates.

Virtually every other party who asked for protection from the mandate has been given it,” said Rienzi.
Earlier this year, the Supreme Court ruled that the Christian-run Hobby Lobby doesn’t have to obey the HHS mandate that is a part of Obamacare that requires businesses to pay for abortion causing drugs in their employee health care plans.

The Little Sisters of the Poor are not community organizers who have moved beyond Jesus like those modern nuns in polyester pantsuits who sing and dance in front of their new age guru, but care for the poor elderly who have no other place to go.

So why is Obama picking on them?

Deep background conspiracy theory:

When the leadership group who claimed to represent all Catholic nuns spun into New Age religion and dissing the pope (and supporting Obama in all things) these nuns dared to say no, and helped start their own organization to represent nuns who remained catholic.


Waterloo trivia

  • Among personal items that Napoleon abandoned in his flight from the field of Waterloo were his silver service, including his chamber pot, his 400 volume traveling library, and a bottle of rum.
