The backwards thinking of “regressives”

September 13, 2015

Marriages were originally IMPLICIT contracts between two parties, and often withh the families engaged. Most were common law marriages, they just moved in together, the aspirant having had the okay of the father. (Fathers know guys better than the daughters do, at least back in those days).

The fact of the matter is, the natural nuclear family (husband, wife, children) is the institution that cultivates the strongest protection against state oppression. That went out the window with the push for state indoctrination of the next generations disguised as “free” academic education and then “forced” induction into the indoctrination centers.

The other institution that cultivates protection against meek pushover subservience to oppressors’ memes are religious institutions, this according to prominent agnostic economist and libertarian writer Murray Rothbard and atheist economist Walter Block.

No wonder Karl Marx wrote in the Communist Manifesto that they had to exterminate the “bourgeois” institution of marriage and family. Total devotion to the collectivist mentality of worker ants is their goal.  The lying viper never wanted a “workers’ paradise”, he wanted his own special groups to dictate.

The modern heirs of Malthus and Marx think there are too many poor people in the world. That’s why they want to “protect” us from bad people, push groupthink, collectivist mentality. They think like the Orwellian uppermost crust of the “Inner Party”, like the Animal Farm where everyone has to be EQUAL but SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS.

So they push Groupthink disguised as “diversity”;

Inequality disguised as “equality”;

Unemployment disguised as “minimum wage”, now morphed to “living wage”;

Racism and racial preferences disguised as “anti-racism”, “affirmative action”,

Censorship and enforcement of group-think disguised as “equality” under the law;

Bullying libertarians, whistleblowers, pro-lifers and those of religious faith, and those who think differently under the guise of “equality” as a meaningless rant and “non-discrimination”,

Violating religious liberty under the guise of claiming to defend it;

And generally wearing sheepskin while inside they are “ravenous wolves”.



Answers to quotes by famous atheists and agnostics

January 26, 2014

“We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes.” -Gene Roddenberry

My reply ==> We must question the irrational logic of someone admitting to being a faulty human, who then fails to wonder why an omniscient and omnipotent God would create him, as if it made no sense to him. Of course it makes no sense to him, as he does not want to consider the answers to this question that he would know exist if he were to only have an open mind.

We must question the intellectual honesty of someone who wants to blame a Creator for his own decision to be faulty in his logic.

“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.” -Edward Gibbon

My reply ==> An amazingly historically ignorant comment coming from such a historian, who must know that all of the major areas of study of modern science were men much wiser than he, and who believed in the Creator God as a fact of reality not always concomitant with what the ignorant know as “religion”. Let us see who is wiser among: Gibbons, Isaac Newton, Francis Bacon, Michael Faraday, Johann Kepler, Blaise Pascal, Robert Boyle…

So does Gibbon determine truth by a majority vote of the smarter-than-thou elite, selected by degree of hubris? Sounds kind of “useful” for such an arrogant class.

Speaking of the wise, take it from the wisest man who ever lived, outside of Jesus Christ:
Proverbs 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise
Isaiah 5:21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?” -Epicurus

This from one of those brilliant idol-worshipping scholars of ancient Greece? No wonder they believed in pagan gods that were no better than men, said women were lower than men but higher than slaves. They were so smart. Just like today’s version of the same intellectual smugness:

Acts 17:16 Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.
18 Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoics, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection.
19 And they took him, and brought him unto Areopagus, saying, May we know what this new doctrine, whereof thou speakest, is?
20 For thou bringest certain strange things to our ears: we would know therefore what these things mean.
21 (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)

“A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.” Albert Einstein

That sounds like the common protestation that “I’m not so bad”, or the very wrong commonly cited myth that “All people are basically good”. Look at toddlers in a day care. Some bigger ones walk around biting the others (I know two toddlers personally that were bitten, hard, unprovoked, while they were toddlers in day care). Some are born aggressive, others not so much. Jacob and Esau fought in the womb; Jacob emerged grabbing at Esau’s feet.

The best universal guide for ethical behavior does not need so much of any of what Einstein said. It’s a universal rule that has been expressed in many different ways everywhere even outside of Judeo-Christian philosophies, and that is expressed in the libertarian refrain, known as the non-aggression principle:

See the best definition at

…an ethical stance which asserts that “aggression” is inherently illegitimate. “Aggression” is defined as the “initiation” of physical force against persons or property, the threat of such, or fraud upon persons or their property. In contrast to pacifism, the non-aggression principle does not preclude violent self-defense. The principle is a deontological (or rule-based) ethical stance.

This much can be expected and indeed required of everyone. As a college student, my first disillusion with Marxism was a realization that came to me one day while musing on the issue of how to change the world for better, and wrestling with the self-contradictions of a dictatorship and the proletariat and the idea that a state would just fade away.

The idea that burst into my head was this: If you cannot trust a man, or group of men, to govern themselves, how can you trust them to govern other people? Of course some people you cannot trust with either situation, to either govern themselves or to govern others, and this is one of the biggest questions people have. Such questions have their answers, for those who seek them or accept them.

There is a much stronger ethic required of Christians, however. One of the Ten Commandments orders us to “Love thy neighbor as thyself”. No, you don’t have to “love yourself first”, that is the opposite of the principle, because “no man yet ever hated his own flesh”.

Jesus made it stronger still in the Golden Rule, paraphrased as “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

The non-aggression principle, for example, says you have no right to steal from the poor. The Christian ethic says, take care of the poor that come across your path. That also means you don’t steal from others to do it, because the only legitimate source you have for helping others is what’s your own. In other words, Help the poor with your own money, not somebody else’s money.

Okay? If you don’t want anyone to steal from you, then don’t steal from others. Taking without the owner’s permission is stealing. To “steal”: “to take (the property of another or others) without permission or right, especially secretly or by force: A pickpocket stole his watch”. from

Andrew Napolitano clarified that last point. If you don’t have the right to steal from your neighbor, you cannot designate any representative to steal from your neighbor either.


“….Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.” -Albert Einstein

The elephant in the logical room that Einstein missed is the fact that all men everywhere are already “restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death”. Is Einstein saying that he needs neither government nor self-defense to prevent attacks or theft by his neighbors? In the places where people are most conscious of posthumous rewards and punishments, of course, we already know that those selfsame places are where you have less need to lock your doors.

Did Einstein’s actions match his words? No he did not. Because he was visiting in the United States when Hitler came to power in Germany, and Hitler did not go back. Instead, he opted to live in a society where the regime did not embrace such a philosophy. For when the atheist has power, he does not believe in having to answer for his actions here or there, so self-delusion drives them to force everyone else into their box.



Which believers have laid down their lives as a witness for unbelievers?

October 17, 2013
English: There are apparently as many Christia...

There are apparently as many Christians as Muslims in Lebanon (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Just the truth in the real world. I met one Coptic Christian lady from Egypt, her brother was killed during the “Arab Spring“.

There have been slaughters of Christians by Muslims and attempts at “ethnic cleansing” in Nigeria and other Muslims countries. But not all Arabs or Muslims are at it, like this article totally ignored, Rand did not say “all” Muslims, just a fraction. —> In fact, in Egypt, most of the people did not like the way that President Morsi (dubiously “elected”) was working to rule as under Sharia law as dictator. He did not rule as a moderate.

In Syria the Christians are terrified, and the Syrian (so-called) “rebels” have sworn to “purify” Nineveh, the place with the oldest Christian community in the world.

Iraq has already lost many of its Christians.

Christians are targeted everywhere, but it’s not necessarily worst where you might expect. The international news organizations have a heavy filter for these incidents.

But are there fringe Christians doing this around the world? No there are not. So the News Spinners Media has to make do with some merry bank of idiots from Kansas who can’t get any more than family and second cousins to join him.

“Die, Christian dog, die!” shouted the United States financed (and armed) Muslim as he gloated over the body. The Syrian rebels are seeking out Christians everywhere they take over.

There is a difference between a religion founded by a man who laid down the lives of unbelievers for his doctrines, and a faith brought to the world by a man who laid down his OWN life for unbelievers, to save them, and then rose from the dead to prove his power to do so on the third day.

There is a difference between the religious faith that grew by conquest by the sword its first few centuries, convert or die, and one that grew by believers laying down their OWN lives as testimony to the power of love.

This is the love of the Son of Hamas, a son of a Muslim Brotherhood founder, who saw the brutal treatment of Muslims by other Muslims in prison, and was shocked by the fact that Jesus said “Love thine enemies“.

Syrian Christian woman wipes the floor with Senator John McCain at a Townhall meeting

September 7, 2013

MUST SEE! Syrian Christian woman wipes the floor with Senator John McCain at a Townhall meeting | BARE NAKED ISLAM…

Okay, now the truth is out. They were beating the drums of war in our faces, in spite of the entire world being against it, and now, a Syrian-American woman who is also a Christian, has put it back in the face of the war mongers, with John McCain as their stand-in.

American interventions in the Middle East, like the lady said, has been disastrous most of all for the Christians in the region. Why is it that Christians get the worst of all the American interventions. Even Hiroshima and Nagasaki had the highest concentration of Christians in Japan at the time…

Some of the oldest continuous Christian populations in Iraq and Syria are now being ethnically cleansed.. And by the way, Muslims are being slaughtered too, not just Alawites…

‘Open hostility’ to Christians in U.S. military

May 4, 2013

Michael “Mikey” Weinstein, the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, is trying to “spiritually rape” all Christians, but he’s just starting in the military forces of the USA. It looks like he has the cooperation of at least a few Pentagon insiders.

Stalin should be so lucky. No doubt this same guy has the same words to say about Joe McCarthy, whom the “leftists” made poster boy for beating up on anti-communists. He wanted to purge the State Department and the military forces of Communists. Now comes Weinstein and wants to purge them all of Christians. The Soviet bloc tyrants fulfilled his dream. The result is that atheists were also the worse off under those ideological dictates, and Christianity thrived as it did under the persecutions of the Romans throughout history.

Who wants to stop free speech and leave atheists to be the only ones who can proselytize openly in the US Armed Forces?

Who is it that wants to ban people from bringing Bibles for patients that might want them at Walter Reed Army Medical Center?

It is this wannabe tyrant, who wants to stamp out Christianity.

Here’s news for you, guy. Removing Christians from the US Army might be the best thing that could happen to those Christians, getting them out of the way of the judgments of God that are going to come back on the heads of the nation that forgot God.

If this little wannabe Antichrist or his cohorts read this, they’ll go into indignant fits, how can you say those things, and others will be alarmed.

Hear what The “voice of the Lord” said to Ezekiel after he saw “Ezekiel’s wheel“:

Ezekiel 3:17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.

18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.

Christianity will not be wiped out at all. In fact, the very existence of what Jesus Christ himself called “The Elect” stands between the judgments coming on the world, and the annihilation of “all flesh”.

Sure, Christ‘s followers at some point will appear to be defeated, but that’s at the end of the very short rule of the Antichrist, “after the Tribulation of those days” (Matthew 24).

“He shall come to his end, and none shall help him.” Daniel 11:45)


“Same sex marriage”

March 17, 2013

A commenter reacts: “I believe that the foe of God; is Church! & Bible. Wisdom is rare.”

Except for “Wisdom is rare”, this is an uneducated encapsulation of a big mix of intellectual errata concerning the Bible. The simplest way to explain libertarian principles to a Christian is the Golden Rule. For example, almost every father and mother who discovers that their son is smoking pot, they do not really want their son to go to prison, they want to persuade him to stop. The possibility of prison has not proved a very effective argument for the users.

The Christian who says he is a “Democrat” really means he wants to use the state to force all of his neighbors to follow “Christian” principles of “visiting the orphans and the widows” and giving alms. An honest one may understand the contradiction of saying stealing is okay because you will use (some of) the loot to help the poor. “I will not give unto the Lord [or one of the least of these] that which hath cost me nothing”, said the Psalmist.

The Bible is a God-inspired document; and the watermark is in the literally 1000s of SPECIFIC prophecies therein, many 100s of them fulfilled. Plus 10s or scores of assertions that became discoveries. And that is without even considering the evidence of Creation.

And the Bible (Old plus New Testaments together) is the most libertarian document there is. Beginning with the fact that salvation is individual, and discipleship is an individual decision. It’s the whole concept of YOU are responsible for what YOU do, morally, and you will reap what you sow.

The early disciples “had all things common” but it was PURELY VOLUNTARY. Common property was a voluntary understanding on joining the disciples, and anybody could leave anytime.

Even under the laws of Moses, anybody could leave the group at any time, like Jesus’ example of the prodigal son. And forget minimalist government; it provided for NO GOVERNMENT AT ALL to empower corruption. Priests had ceremonial duties and they were judges in matters of capital offenses. In the US, many have gotten death penalties based on the word of ONE witness; under the Mosaic law you had to have TWO.

The claims about recognition of same-sex marriage are moot if the state is removed from the equation. Private hospitals can make their own rules in a free market, and you can use the one that allows whomever you want to visit you. Marriage as we know it in the West was a common-law arrangement that has evolved into statist control.

“Christians” are guilty historically of letting themselves use the state to take over things like marriage. Or vice versa. They lost their way, they should concentrate on sharing the truth with others and knowing the “why”. My faith is based on facts, history, reason and logic, but FORCE is NOT the way to stop sin or spread that faith!

The Bible CONDEMNS using force to spread the gospel, that methodology belongs to others. The worst “Christian” atrocities were done by political authorities that BANNED the Bible! For example, the first knowledge John Knox had of any Bible was a listing of banned books!

Anybody can make a commitment. I am married to my wife in all its fullest meaning, but I had to get a marriage certificate to get a visa for her. My solution to the visa thing in order is (1) free trade, free movement both directions, and (2) anybody entering contracts as they see fit.

Lastly, the subject of whether “gayness” or “gay marriage” is good for somebody, or whether aspartame is harmful for you, or whether there exist climatologists who expose climate-gate scientifically (there are), all people expressing themselves for and against have the right to express it.

Movie “No Greater Love”: One thing missing

March 3, 2013
No Greater Love (2010 film)

No Greater Love (2010 film) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)


The writers of this movie wanted to lift up the idea of lifetime monogamous marriage and the idea of forgiveness. Of course this always gets into the romance of it too. But they did one thing wrong in the script.


They set it up so that after ten years of abandoning the husband with the child, the husband had found another woman who really loved him. When the ex-wife shows up, he breaks up with the new love and she is devastated. None of the Christians in the context are concerned about her at all. And that is the end of her in the whole thing.


That is a real shame. Sure it complicates the plot, but if you want to show Christian love in a movie about Christian love, marriage, matters of the heart and hurt, you go into that too.





Reply to a Skeptic

January 5, 2013
Michael Faraday

My answer to a libertarian who is also a skeptic of the Bible, of God….

There you go again, talking about stereotype Christians that only exist in the caricatures you’ve been taught in government indoctrination centers (aka “public schools”) and government-financed young-adult indoctrination centers (aka “universities”).  My point was not to convince you of anything except that your holier-than-thou view of Biblical Christian belief manifested in your vocabulary bounces off the intended target, because you’re talking about tings that Bible-believers do not do or believe.

A few hair-brained idiots like the one group you mentioned as if it were typical, even with the billions in warped publicity they got, is only able to get two or three dozen followers, and half of those are the guy’s own family. It shows a nonsensical view to say these are typical or even to use them as a counterpoint to belief. Your mentioning them (in context) is like me saying I’m not an atheist because I don’t believe I should massacre 20 million people. Ad hominem arguments are irrelevant. But you have brought morality into the argument of an existential question (Does God exist?), so I’ve included commentary about it.

Another stupid view of which it is true that many Christians hold, is that all the award is in the afterlife. My life has had big disappointments, as has your own, but my life is super-grand. “Delight thyself in the Lord and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”. (If your delights are warped it’s not “in the Lord”).

Your comments about burning in hell also show a misunderstanding of the whole thing. If an oven is real, denying its existence is the psychosis. I didn’t ask you to become a believer, obviously you’re not ready and may never be. I just wanted to knock down some ridiculous stereotypes that torture the minds of some unbelievers who have been schooled in same. NOBODY except demons and devils wants you to burn in hell, for example, it was not even made for humans. See, there’s a lot you don’t know about this and it shows when you get into the caricatures.

The caricatures show a bit of doubt about one’s own views on the subject, an aversion to how thinking people like Isaac Newton or Michael Faraday or Mother Theresa or William WIlberforce or Dr. Livingston would believe in a LOVING God that wanted them to help others.

A wonderful world is indeed where people take responsibility for their actions. Thinking that the Bible says otherwise shows a polar opposite understanding of its messages. “God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man seweth, that shall he also reap”. Believers hold it true more than you, because they know they have to give account. But without that, it just bubbles over as an effect of the belief. Like Mother Theresa might say, What else was she going to do? Or Dr. Livingston, the scourge of slavers everywhere, What else?

Your last paragraph does not seem to have any logical connection to the conversation. Christ HATES predation and thievery and ROARED against the money changers in the temple TWO THOUSAND YEARS almost before you were ever born and before Ron Paul‘s presidential campaigns. He is pleading with us to stop this theft and oppression of the poor.

LASTLY, since you wanted to take the conversation in this direction, I did not, keep in mind that the absolute worst regimes for murder and plunder and atrocity in the entire history of mankind has been the officially ATHEIST regimes. They did not permit religion to have any visible influence at all.

By their fruits ye shall know them.

“After the Tribulation”

December 30, 2012

For those who are Biblical Christians and have an interest in prophecy, I have posted a reference on my blog that I use for topics that would interest such an audience and those who are curious as well, including a video that expounds on the subject of “pre-Trib” and “post-Tribulation” rapture:

Memphis Three? How about the Southern Sudan TWO MILLION?

December 22, 2012

Hollywood cares about the Memphis Three, accused of murder in Satanic rituals, the most darling of which, Echols, has apparently sought refuge in Salem:

There are some people who still think he’s guilty. Maybe Echols should have gone into a rock band instead and sung a sequel to “Sympathy for the Devil” on one song, and entice the adoring fans into listening to their violent and drug-saturated other songs.

You want miscarriage of justice? Yeah, let’s see a Paradise Lost sequel for Brian Terry, victim of Fast and Furious (False flag) and of the followup (no prison time for Brian Terry):

Here’s a much bigger one, only the victims are the current underclass of Official Media. Another genocide against black Africans. ignored by the Hollywood crowd that gets really mad when a Wiccan gets falsely accused:
Here’s a youtube on it, filmed by the attackers, who do not have any worries about Western Press for some reason:

The Sudanese torturers have idealogical colleagues, comrades in arms, at Guantanamo. Maybe Hollywood thinks the killing cousins in Guantanamo should not be waterboarded, but what about their comrades in arms torturing black-skinned Christians in Sudan?

There’s an Iranian-born American citizen being unjustly held in Iran because he is a Christian.

There was a Christian Iranian pastor who was under sentence of death for apostasy, released after years of prison only because the entire world kept their eyes on them and they must have wanted to avoid looking bad to even the more moderate Muslims, or enraging Americans before they’re ready.


Let’s visit the case of a “Phoenix

Fallen Border Patrol Agent Remembered - Brian ...

Fallen Border Patrol Agent Remembered – Brian A. Terry Border Patrol Station Ribbon Cutting Ceremony (Photo credit: CBP Photography)

pastor jailed over a home Bible study?
Of course the royalty of the city of Phoenix have said it’s a “safety” issue and a “zoning” issue. What they are not saying, of course, is that for them it is a matter of who is boss and who can tell you what to do in your home and where and how you can worship. And that they are the only ones qualified to know what is safe to do in YOUR home.

In that article, there’s also a mention that Pacific Justice Institute successfully drove back a law that required all groups of three or more to register before meeting:

PJI recently successfully defended a local Christian Bible group meeting in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., that was vulnerable to a controversial city code that required all religious, fraternal or nonprofit organizations of three people or more to obtain a conditional-use permit for hosting meetings, including Bible studies. The couple hosting the Bible group faced a $300 fine for violating this code. PJI successfully convinced the city of San Juan Capistrano to adopt a new policy that now allows up to 40 people to meet in a private residence without a permit.


Islamists are slaughtering both Muslims and Christians in Syria, but for the latter they have a special curse and execute special humiliations: “DIe, Christian dog, die!”

But three guys who “dabble” (wink wink) in Wicca are heroes to some in the crowd who think Christians should go to jail for ignoring government-ordered rules for their faith that force them to choose between jail, bankruptcy or giving up their faith.
