Signs and Wonders: This Is The Season for Statesmen
Karl Paul Reinhold Niebuhr, one of America’s great liberal theologians, gave us one of the most powerful pieces of literature ever written–the Serenity Prayer. Many a friend and foe of mine, overcoming the strains of addiction, have called on their Sovereign Lord through the words of this poet: O God and Heavenly Father, Grant to us the serenity of mind to accept that which cannot | Read More »

When Did Being A Slut Become The Morally Superior Option?
Being easy is well, easy. Being cheap and easy is even easier. And evidently, the new moral imperative is to not have any morals and be proud of it. Meanwhile, there are some crazy younguns like Steven Crowder who value abstinence as a positive life choice. From Steven’s Fox editorial this week: The idea of abstinence has become somewhat of a punchline in this country. | Read More »
Let’s Talk About (Not Having) Sex
Tabitha Hale shared an excellent post by Steven Crowder about sex or rather not having sex. The idea of abstinence has become somewhat of a punchline in this country. From the myth of unrealistic “abstinence only” education, to the media’s constant portrayal (and mockery) of young, nerdy, out of touch Christians riddled with chastity pendants, the message on abstinence being pumped through pop-culture is clear; | Read More »
Sex, the White House and Healthcare
Sex, the White House and Healthcare We’ve Established What The White House Is, And Now We Are Just Haggling Over Price Pardon this old, tasteless joke, but in the scheme of the behind closed doors, back room dealings required to potentially get the healthcare bill passed, it is somewhat apropos.

Dirty Old Men
Only in America can the lecherous leanings and extra-marital shenanigans of a dirty old man result in ratings gold and a national conversation. The David Letterman Show scored its highest ratings yet as he aired his sexual proclivities in public under the guise of apologizing to his wife for betraying her with a variety of casual sexual partners. Partners, who, by the way, could have | Read More »
It used to be that forcing sex on an unconsenting adult was considered rape. No longer. Now personal, deviant and x-rated sex is quickly becoming commonplace in the public square. In just the last week, this occupant of the ‘public square’ has been treated to images best confined to the pages of porn magazines. Images and acts that are popping up regularly on billboards, television, | Read More »
The Governor Was Afraid To Come Out Of The Closet!
The Right Side Of Kennebunk. Today was a day of thrills, Couldn’t get enough of people and they couldn’t get enough of me. They where trying to take bites out of me like I was a pork chop. So I figure I would take a bite out of them and I did. I live in a town that lets just say everybody knows who I | Read More »
Today Show Feature: ‘There’s No Such Thing as Virginity’
Jessica Valenti, founder of the vaguely pornographic sounding Feministing.com, has decided that there is no such thing as virginity in America’s young girls and the Today Show is entirely pleased with itself to give her a national TV venue from which to say so. Never mind how silly it all sounds. On April 22 Valenti and Today pushed the idea that sexually active girls should | Read More »
Canadian Parents Fooled Into Raising Prostitutes
Canada, oh Canada. What the heck happened to ya? I suppose it is nothing more mundane than that our northern neighbor has succumbed to the same sort of nihilism that western culture in general is slouching toward. Two recent stories in the Canadian press could not illustrate better the depths being plumbed by Canadian society–and by extension our own. The first purports to be parenting | Read More »
Why Allowing Open Homosexuality In The Military Is A Bad Idea.
NOTE: Was responding to this and it got too big. A friend of mine in the Army explained to me once, why the bulk of servicemen from the top officers to the lowest enlisteds are against the allowing of open homosexuality in the Armed Forces. Primarily, it was unit cohesion, and he gave me an explanation, that I thought made sense. Unit cohesion depends upon | Read More »
Using Obama sex to sell the New York Times
The mainstream media’s Obamamania reaches a new, much lower, level. The New York Times “Domestic Disturbances” blogger, Judith Warner, writes about dreams of illicit sex with President Obama – not just hers, but also a number of her female friends: The other night I dreamt of Barack Obama. He was taking a shower right when I needed to get into the bathroom to shave my | Read More »
Virginity for sale.
A woman with a peculiarly mercenary streak is auctioning off her virginity for a considerable sum of money: $3.7 million, according to this Telegraph report. It’s one way to beat the recession, I suppose. The idea of enterprising degradation came to her, it is further reported, because her sister was able to pay for “her own degree after working as a prostitute for three weeks.” | Read More »
Disney – They can’t even leave the kids out of it!!!!
[The stupid, offensive, and slightly racist post that used to reside in this diary slot has been replaced. The diarist in question has been sent to The Pile™, pending an especially good apology and explanation to the contact form. The following video accurately and pithily captures the intellectual content you would have received, had you read the original blog:Thank you for your time.-Mgmt.]
Some results in MA from the same sex marriage ruling.
On November 18, 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court announced its Goodridge opinion, ruling that it was unconstitutional not to allow same-sex “marriage.” Six months later, homosexual marriages began to be performed.Just some quotes and results. Here’s what could come to your town: At my own children’s high school there was a school-wide assembly to celebrate same-sex “marriage” in early December, 2003. It featured an | Read More »
followers of what?
As I scanned her Facebook account, I was stunned. We grew up together in South Dakota. A pastor’s kid, it appeared she had graduated from a Christian high school and received a religious studies degree at a state university. I hadn’t talked with her for over 15 years. In that time, I had weathered my parents’ divorce, thyroid cancer, a Bachelor’s degree in global political | Read More »
