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”.

Drones

June 23rd, 2014 by Zen

-don-mccullough

 

Far be it from me to preach a prosperity gospel with golden idols for everyone, righteousness should yield a minimum of national success. But if we can’t even compete with the corrupt and backwards regimes, then that should be a trumpet in our ears. If we are defeated in soccer/fütbol at the Worldcup, not one will be greatly surprised. If Japan or Korea makes a better smart phone, we are not shocked.

But if we don’t lead the world in pizza delivery, then something just isn’t right.  Russia has pizza delivery drones and we can’t even manage the redtape. America invented and perfected pizza as we know it. But here we are with Russia doing what we have only talked about.

I hate feeling like we are falling behind.

That and I am hungry for some supreme with extra cheese.

Glamour model becomes a nun.

June 21st, 2014 by Bookslinger

Darn. I don’t deny her conversion experience, but I wish she had talked to Mormon sister missionaries first. She looks like she has some good genes that she could have passed along.

A New Heaven and a New Earth

June 12th, 2014 by Zen

“With Christian or Jewish presuppositions, or indeed Muslim, then if you believe in what it says in Genesis 1 about God making heaven and earth—and the binaries in Genesis are so important—that heaven and earth, and sea and dry land, and so on and so on, and you end up with male and female. It’s all about God making complementary pairs which are meant to work together. The last scene in the Bible is the new heaven and the new earth, and the symbol for that is the marriage of Christ and his church. It’s not just one or two verses here and there which say this or that. It’s an entire narrative which works with this complementarity so that a male-plus-female marriage is a signpost or a signal about the goodness of the original creation and God’s intention for the eventual new heavens and new earth.”

Scholar NT Wright explains marriage, and gay marriage and scripture

Have we no Right to Happiness?

June 09th, 2014 by Zen

CS Lewis says no. 

Of course, we all believe ‘men are that they might have joy’. But that hardly excuses every pursuit of happiness, any more than it justifies all sin.

The Triumvirate of False Priests will Tolerate no Dissent

June 09th, 2014 by Zen

The Media, The Bureaucracy, and Academia – all are powers unto themselves in shaping public opinion. They celebrate diversity, and yet, tolerate no dissent to their doctrines. I call these False Priests, but I suspect that the name given in The Daily Beast (hardly a Conservative publication) will be more popular – let us call them the Clerisy. And while these are bastions of the Left, this is not a strictly a problem of the Left. It is the Elites deciding for the rest of us, what they think, in their infinite wisdom should be done.

All men will worship. It is what we worship that we can choose. Men will either be governed by God, or ruled by Tyrants.
