Culture Wars
August 17 2016 By dvirtue How To Destroy a Culture and Our Children

The show features a homosexual couple and "their" young child. Of course it is not their child: children cannot come into the world through two men. But the thrust of the show -- like so many others -- is to convince the gullible masses that family can mean whatever we want it to, and no family structure is any better than any other.

August 16 2016 By dvirtue Obsession with victimhood will be the downfall of the West

It is a complement to Western society that the majority of us have certainly navigated past the first four levels. As we are more healthy and wealthy than ever before, most of us no longer need to focus on our basic survival needs. We have the time and freedom to create the upper level of need - to self-actualise, fulfil our potential and create a better society.

August 15 2016 By dvirtue Faith at the Olympics: Does it give an athlete an edge?

In terms of religion, the 554 athletes of Team USA are a cross-section of the nation they represent, with Catholic, Jewish, Protestant, Buddhist and Muslim members, among others. It also has members who -- like 23 percent of Americans -- are unaffiliated with any religion and who, perhaps like 7 percent of Americans, say they do not believe in God or are agnostic.

But Boudia's and Johnson's remarks raise a question: Does religious faith give an athlete any sort of edge?

August 12 2016 By dvirtue Christianity 911

As a father who has watched his son go to war three times I cannot fathom the pain if he had not come home. But I know exploitation when I see it. I also learned a long time ago that whenever a public stance is taken there will be others who think differently and will quickly make their displeasure known. In the vernacular don't give what you are unwilling to take.

August 03 2016 By dvirtue WASHINGTON, DC: Supreme Court may be converting on religion

It took an obscure order issued on the last day of the recent term for Justice Samuel Alito to drive home the point. By refusing to consider a family-owned pharmacy's objection to a Washington state regulation forcing it to stock and sell emergency contraceptives, he warned, the court was sending an "ominous sign."

"If this is a sign of how religious liberty claims will be treated in the years ahead, those who value religious freedom have cause for great concern." Alito said.

August 02 2016 By dvirtue Muslims flock to Mass to show solidarity and compassion

All Muslims are exhorted to the greater jihad, to strive against the flesh and persevere in the purposes of Allah, but not all jihad is holy war. All Muslims are not Islamists, but Muslims are becoming terrorists. It is futile, patronising and dangerous to deny it. Islamists are extremists who kill the innocent; Muslims who are moderate and enlightened seek to worship in peace. Islam is not all about oppressing, torturing, murdering and slaughtering. It just seems like it.

July 29 2016 By dvirtue PC Dystopia Where Children Sing 'Amazing Self'

'Twas Self that moved my heart to sing
And Self my dream to be lived;
How I boosted my self-esteeming
The hour I first believed

When we've been here for billions of years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing Self's praise
Than when we've first begun

July 27 2016 By dvirtue Will Europe finally face up to the threat of Islamism?

The reason for the attack seems perfectly clear -- an attack on Christians at mass by Muslim jihadists hardly needs parsing, does it? -- as indeed the French prime minister, Manuel Valls, observed when he said on Twitter that the 'barbaric' attack was a blow to Catholics and the whole of France. 'We will stand together,' he said. How, exactly?

July 22 2016 By dvirtue How a rolling sexual revolution is crushing freedom

When German writer and public speaker Gabriele Kuby talks about the effects of the West’s student revolution of 1968 she knows her stuff. She was there, at the Free University of Berlin, studying sociology and gung-ho with the anti-authoritarianism of the era.
