Some Things Said… (December 08)

Academia's Top Abuses of 2008 Cadets at West Point, the nation’s foremost military academy, must maintain disciplined, selfless behavior -- a precursor to the standards graduates are expected to uphold and reinforce once commissioned as military officers… “Allyson” Robinson, a West Point grad him-, er, herself, switched genders after leaving the Army. Upon returning to West Point as a guest speaker, “Mrs.” Robinson found it “worrisome” that the student composition seemed more socially conservative than when “she” was a student.…

 Emptiness Charles Darwin, with his limited understanding of biological systems, began a revolution 150 years ago that continues to take its toll on the sciences and on people of faith. If all that exists is only what can be observed around us, then we are to be profoundly pitied. Dr. William Provine of Cornell University sums up the despair that naturally results from a belief in Darwinism:   “Let me summarize my views on what modern evolutionary biology tells us…

Carbon Chastity The First Commandment of the Church of the Environment I'm not a global warming believer. I'm not a global warming denier. I'm a global warming agnostic who believes instinctively that it can't be very good to pump lots of CO2 into the atmosphere but is equally convinced that those who presume to know exactly where that leads are talking through their hats.

Environmentalism as religion All the books that I have seen about the science and economics of global warming, including the two books under review, miss the main point. The main point is religious rather than scientific. There is a worldwide secular religion which we may call environmentalism, holding that we are stewards of the earth, that despoiling the planet with waste products of our luxurious living is a sin, and that the path of righteousness is to live as frugally as possible. The ethics of environmentalism are being taught to children in kindergartens, schools, and colleges all over the world.

Something (once again) from the Religion of Peace Final Appeal in Kambakhsh Case Tomorrow Like Abdul Rahman who had to be judged insane and then spirited out of Afghanistan to avoid the death penalty for converting to Christianity, this student journalist is likewise facing death for "insulting Islam" in the new improved Afghanistan we are fighting to preserve and he will probably endure the same sort of treatment. It would be too embarrassing, there would be too much publicity, if we let the Islamic wheels of justice (a system we helped to instate) roll forward in full view of the world. He will undoubtedly be coming to live with the infidels.

Obama: Sermon on Mount OKs Same-Sex Unions Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) told a crowd at Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio, Sunday that he believes the Sermon on the Mount justifies his support for legal recognition of same-sex unions. He also told the crowd that his position in favor of legalized abortion does not make him "less Christian." "I don't think it [a same-sex union] should be called marriage, but I think that it is a legal right that they should have that is recognized by the state," said Obama. "If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans." St. Paul's Epistle to the Romans condemns homosexual acts as unnatural and sinful.
