Just thought I’d put this out there because I’m tired of seeing my views misrepresented and derided on this site.
I’m not “anti-choice” or “anti-woman”. If I were, I wouldn’t care about the fact that a woman can be a criminal in China for getting pregnant. Or that many young women in my own…
So far the two responses to this have been so inane that I wasn’t sure if I should laugh or cry. It seems to me that we are finally reaping the results of the post-modern materialist worldview. To view a human life as equivalent to a rock or a tree is so asinine that it doesn’t even deserve consideration. After all, if a human is no different than a tree or a possum then I should either be arrested for the hit and run on that animal in the road, or should be free to kill someone if they irritate me.
As for the other responder she completely avoided the question that all supporters of abortion avoid: When does life begin. Since modern medicine can support a child born after 20 weeks you have to deal with the fact that there is no logical foundation for allowing an abortion after that point. The only logic is “I want to do what I want to do and damn the rest of the world.”
No logical or coherent, much less long lasting, system of thought or society can last from either of these views. They are a perfect example of post-modern thinking at its best.
Understand what You Are Saying
I sometimes have to laugh at the ideas that I hear going around. For example, people keep trying to convince me that a top down controlled economy is a liberal economy. Not at all Economic liberalism has always been dominated by free market ideals. Top down, government controlled economics is actually conservative economics. The trouble is that we have socialism masquerading as liberalism and giving it a bad name.
At a lovely lunch today with the lovely Star Williams. Went to Get the Scoop. Had the chicken taco salad. Food was good company was good. Who cares about the rain, it’s a beautiful day when I can have lunch with my sweetie.
I have a wonderful wife. There are those who say I don’t deserve her. They are probably right. However, as a Christian I was taught that I don’t deserve salvation either. In both cases I’m perfectly happy to receive what I don’t deserve.
An enormous amount of modern ingenuity is expended on finding defences for the indefensible conduct of the powerful.
Can someone please explain to me the naked PETA campaigns. These celebrity females strip naked to protest animal cruelty. Why is a naked woman a protest against animal cruelty? Who are they trying to appeal to? Are they trying to appeal to men? I can guarantee that a straight man sees one of these posters and he doesn’t say “Wow! Look at that statement.” Are they trying to appeal to women? My experience is that women rarely look to a nude model for their moral guidance. Can someone please explain this to me?

There is no such thing on earth as an uninteresting subject; the only thing that can exist is an uninterested person.
