Using Christian Ghosts to Criticize Christianity

May 22nd, 2012 by G.

This Ross Douthat piece is worth your while. He points out that most reflex liberalism (equality! fairness!) is really reflex Christianity, and it doesn’t make much sense to criticize Christianity’s sexual ethics, e.g., on the grounds that they conflict with some vaguely remembered echo of Christian doctrine on the dignity of man that’s been worked up into a generalized system.

Government in the Marriage Business

June 16th, 2011 by Bertie

Is marriage a business? When the dear little woman pulls down my head to hers and whispers “my mate” and, er, well, one needn’t elaborate. . . . Hardly here or there, what? The point, the thing I’m driving at, if you get me, is that one hardly associates the lovebird stuff with the green eye-shade set. Bertram isn’t actually married yet, I hear you saying, and I gracefully concede the objection. But I hardly see how a few well-expressed vows in front of a beneficent clergyman will transmute the bwessed awwangement into pots o’ goblins. Dashed nonsense.

May 23rd, 2011 by G.

Children raised by gay parents are more likely to be gay or bisexual themselves, a study shows. Also, those children are more likely to have their families break up. (more…)

Predicting the New Frontiers of Tolerance

March 27th, 2009 by Jeeves

It was the late Mr. Gilbert K. Chesterton who was led to observe that the deranged suffer not from a deficit of reason but from a deficit of everything else. On this, as in other matters, sir, I find him an invaluable guide. Thank you, sir.
