The World That I Live In

From WTOP:

“An elementary school in Anne Arundel County closed early Friday because animal control couldn’t catch a feral cat in the building.

The Intimacy of the Flesh (of the Peach and the Tomato)

August 27th, 2014 by G.

I’m reading a book on permaculture gardening. On the technical stuff its good. In its philosophizing and general worldview, its pretty hippy dippy. Still, if you pan for nuggets, you find them.

Here’s one:

With a garden there is a long courtship and the prospect of a lasting marriage.

-thus Peter Bane, the Permaculture Handbook

Myopia

August 27th, 2014 by Zen

The scandal enveloping England right now, is 1400 girls have been sexually abused and raped, but the local authorities did nothing because they didn’t want to look racist. The BBC reports on this, but refuses to mention the racial aspect. You may not want to read this on a full stomach. 1 2 3

That and 1400 is probably conservative and there is evidence that this is not limited or unique to Rotherham. The authorities guilty have taken responsibility for this by resigning.

(Hint: when you screw up that badly, that is not taking responsibility. This is.)

Meanwhile, Billy Joel was criticized in his tribute to the late Robin Williams, for including a very tame “racist” joke and a frat is facing Title IX violations for a dancing teletubby.

In other news, on Monday, Beyonce performed a sexually suggestive performance at the VMAs, that involved an abundance of butts, scantily-clad women spread-eagle, and lewd lyrics. But she also put up a sign in lights that said Feminist, so she was applauded. The next night, at the Emmys (no, I don’t watch these things) Sofia Vergara in a full length classy dress stood on a platform as a bit of a joke. This was decried as sexist and objectifying.

I could go on, and I could certainly provide more links. What concerns me (above and beyond the actual tragedies) is how distorted things are to the World. They can not tell up from down.

And so will we if we do not keep the commandments.

The Golden Calf looks Curiously like a Mirror

July 10th, 2014 by Zen

Religion tends to reemerge in the unlikeliest places. Today, at least in America, the newest and brashest religions hover—rather obsessively, in fact—around various permutations of personal “identity.” For many, whether they realize it or not, “identity” is the new God. Tim Keller, the well-known author and pastor of New York City’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church, puts it this way: “Our need for worth is so powerful that whatever we base our identity and value on we essentially ‘deify.’ We will look to it with all the passion and intensity of worship and devotion, even if we think of ourselves as highly irreligious.”

Thus writes Heather Wilhelm

The only fault I would find with it, is that she is too narrow, in not including the SSM cult as well, as well as the rest of the LGBTQQIP2SAA group. Perhaps it should be called Sexual Orientation Identity Boosterism. Still, so excellent an article I don’t like to fault.

In other news, the unelected bureaucrat branch of government in Colorado is not waiting for something so mundane as law to grant Same Sex Marriage Licenses.

And if your identity includes Euthanasia, you are entitled to that too. No… there is no slippery slope that would involve a sizeable percentage (say 12%) of the death in the country being euthanasia. That would simply be too macabre and ridiculous.

All we declare has been officially labeled, “Phooey”

June 25th, 2014 by Zen

I expect, that imagining that the World at large to understand beyond what is popular at the moment, is an exercise in vanity, if not a serious work out.

The 10th circuit court of appeals has decided we have a constitutionally protected right to Same sex marriage, and all our reasons against it are “tepid”.
