Given an atheistic or even an agnostic starting point, how can someone be outraged by evil? Without God, being outraged over the presence of evil is a subjective notion borrowed from the Christian worldview. “If God is nothing,” according to Russian novelist Feodor Dostoyevsky (1821–1881), “everything is permitted; if God
It’s fascinating what liberals will justify in the name of their pet political policies. If an accused rapist votes the way they want him to vote, they will keep him in office. The following is from the January 5, 2016 episode of “The View”: JOY BEHAR: Hillary is in a
If you’ve ever been in a debate over abortion, you know where the land-mine questions are buried. The first one is, “You have no right to tell me what I can do with my own body.” The most accurate and simplest answer is, Of course, I don’t have any right
For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.” But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another (Gal. 5:14-15). Eating your neighbor is not a happy thought. None of us
In The Dark Knight (2008) Batman meets up with his most diabolical enemy – the Joker, played fiendishly by the late Heath Ledger. There’s nothing funny about Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker. It’s not Jack Nicholson’s clownish Joker. This Joker is psychotic. Or is he? Alfred warns Bruce Wayne that
Given the operating assumptions of evolution, sexual assault and rape are natural.
Ashley Judd is a beautiful, talented actress who made news recently when she made some very poor decisions in public.
Rape is not something anyone should joke about. Neither should anyone who disagrees with someone politically compare it with being raped. Such a comparison belittles the tragedy that physical rape is to women who have been raped. Judd Apatow is a comedian and the producer of such films as Anchorman and Bridesmaids,
It’s not only some of the GOP’s bad policies and believing that if they compromise with Democrats the Democrats will return the favor and compromise with them that loses the big elections for what’s left of the Grand Old Party. It’s their unwillingness to fight because they don’t believe they
“Sunday on Fox News Channel’s ‘Fox & Friends’ Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said if the Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton attacks him as sexist, it is ‘fair game’ to bring up her husband former President Bill Clinton’s indiscretions.” (H/T: Breitbart) This is why people like Trump, even though they know he’s not
If those in the media ever break ranks and report honestly on the lack of honesty of Hillary Clinton, it will be a new day in America. We will be through with the Clintons forever. The media won’t break ranks until they know there is an electable alternative to her.
There’s a new study out that claims “gay” DNA may have been found. Not so fast. “Nature News were among the first to break the story based on a press release issued by the conference organisers. Others quickly followed suit. ‘Have They Found The Gay Gene?’ said the front page of Metro, a London paper. .
I’ve been asked by a number of people to respond to an article by Erica Williams Simon titled “There are 6 Scriptures about homosexuality in the Bible. Here’s what they really say.” Here’s her introduction: “I’m the daughter of two ministers and still spend every Sunday in church, so I
Phil Robertson tells it like it is. Since he’s not running for political office, and he doesn’t need the money, he can be truthful. Also, as an uncompromising Christian, he wants people to understand the implications of their worldview in this life and in the life to come. It’s called
The war on women meme is raging again. It’s like pulling the race card. When you don’t have a substantive argument or when the facts are against you, pull the race card or claim that there’s a conservative “war on women.” Look what happened when presidential candidate Rand Paul dared
There has been a great deal of attention given to reports of rape. Rolling Stone magazine reported on an alleged “brutal gang rape of a woman named Jackie during a party at a University of Virginia fraternity house.” Included in the story was that the University failed “to respond to this alleged
I’ve only recently heard of Hillsong Church. It’s described as a “mega-church.” It would have remained anonymous to me except that Facebook lit up with some rather odd comments about the Bible and homosexuality made by some of the leadership. “Hillsong Church’s New York location reportedly draws ‘a lot of
The discussion about Islam with Ben Affleck and Sam Harris on Bill Maher’s show is still making waves. Journalist Nicholas Kristof also took part in the discussion, backing up Affleck. Both Harris and Maher are atheists. Even so, they shot down Affleck’s claim that Christianity is also a violent religion
