Is Today the first day of America’s spiritual awakening?

September 12th, 2016 by Bruce Charlton

Is Today the first day of the start of a potential spiritual awakening for the USA?

(In a sense analogous to the first day after the Brexit vote for the UK.)

In light of the breach of the dam of lies concerning HRC’s serious illness, it could be – and I argue why at my Notions blog:

R.I.P. Phyllis Schlafly, 1924 – 2016.

September 10th, 2016 by Bookslinger

Bio at Wiki.

If the LDS church had a “Righteous Among the Gentiles(Nations)” award, she would receive it.

Ok, so it’s not a perfect parallel/analogy.  But, dang, you have to admire the woman for her tireless defense of womanhood, motherhood, unborn life, family values, and for correctly understanding (and predicting) and opposing the forces of communism, and international leftism/progressivism. She saw what was happening before most others did, and relentlessly sounded the warning bells.

1939 – 2016. Bio at Wiki.

He later became a gospel singer, but still had a knack for novelty songs such as “When I Die, Just Bury Me at Walmart“.

September

September 09th, 2016 by G.

Summer ends now; now, barbarous in beauty, the
Stooks arise
Around; up above, what wind-walks! what
lovely behavior
Of silk-sack clouds! Has wilder, willful-waiver
Meal-drift molded ever and melted across skies?

-thus Gerard Manley Hopkins.

 

Stooks are shocks.

Old, Large Apartments Redeveloped New and Small

August 30th, 2016 by John Mansfield

“Brookland Manor today has 134 four- and five-bedroom apartments. Yet when the new community is built, none of its 1,646 apartments or 114 for-sale townhouses will have more than three bedrooms, and a vast majority will have only one or two.

Brookland’s owner, Mid-City Financial Corp., based in Germantown, Md., told the city’s Zoning Commission that four- and five-bedroom apartments ‘are not consistent with the creation of a vibrant new community.'”
(link)

“Four- and five-bedroom units in the District constitute just 8 percent and 4 percent of available rental housing, respectively, with most of the properties in Wards 7 and 8, the city’s poorest areas, according a report last year.”

Clutch Those Pearls

August 30th, 2016 by Man SL

the left has taken control over every important economic, political, and cultural institution in the United States including most of the churches.

The right has lost influence over the influential: the educated class that controls the US.

That is what conservatives should worry about: being annihilated.

Anyone who isn’t a leftist is being shoved out of power. Instead of addressing that, many conservatives are frightened of a frog cartoon and scared for their stupid Washington jobs.

-thus Henry Dampier

American Birthrates at an All-time Low

August 15th, 2016 by G.

For several years, every year the birthrate has reached new lows.

Ho-hum, no big deal.

 

What are the best observable criteria for a successful country, society or culture? Three suggestions…

1. Religion: A vigorous, pervasive, personally-engaged, positively-inflected religious life.

2. Love: Above-replacement fertility rates; loving families are valued and usual.

3. Soul: Individuals who are acting-from their own souls (not passively-controlled by the external environment). This means relationships are deep and valid; and also means that what people do is expressive of their real selves.

thus Bruce Charlton.  He goes on to say that prosperity and power are fleeting if Religion, Love, and Soul are vanished.

States without Texting Bans

August 05th, 2016 by John Mansfield

I’m looking at a recent traffic safety newsletter produced by Cape Fox, a company that does driver training programs for the military. An article on texting while parking (instead of driving) lists the U.S. states and territories where texting while driving is illegal. Six states are not on the list.

Which six states are they? Please restrict yourself to two states per hour in the comments.

God Incarnate

August 02nd, 2016 by G.

 the Christian fact of the divine Jesus becoming incarnate, dying and then being resurrected in a perfected but human body – strongly implies that incarnation is a higher state than immaterial spirit life.

Yet the fact of incarnation and resurrection has been, for most of Christian history, confused by the dogmatic assertion that God the Father was disembodied, an immaterial spirit – despite multiple scriptural references which seem to imply the  opposite.

-thus Bruce Charlton. Read the whole thing.
