The day the music died. Ms America cried.
Lady Liberty became the Whore of Babylon song.
Come one, come all, and come along.
All evil and debauchery cannot be denied!
The day the music died and Ms. America cried. .
It is what it is not what it ought to be.
No, the sky is not falling — not yet, anyway — but with the Supreme Court ruling constitutionalizing same-sex marriage, the ground under our feet has shifted tectonically.
It is hard to overstate the significance of the Obergefell decision — and the seriousness of the challenges it presents to orthodox Christians and other social conservatives. Voting Republican and other failed culture war strategies are not going to save us now.
Discerning the meaning of the present moment requires sobriety, precisely because its radicalism requires of conservatives a realistic sense of how weak our position is in post-Christian America.
The alarm that the four dissenting justices sounded in their minority opinions is chilling. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Antonin Scalia were particularly scathing in pointing out the philosophical and historical groundlessness of the majority’s opinion. Justice Scalia even called the decision “a threat to democracy,” and denounced it, shockingly, in…

I pray for people who have broken hearts and broken spirits about life to remember in all your sadness that Jesus loves you and he was not the one that hurt you. He awaits for all his chosen children to come sit in his lap again.
I read the Popes recent economic letter. It was well written but it seemed like a communist manifesto disguised as a letter of hope. It lacked substance. It lacked understanding of the suffering of the Church’s children. The Pope does not want to address the Antichrist of our time which is the Beast of Islam. I will address this further but not today because it will ruin my Mo Joe.

It’s too late for this now, but VIP commenter chris made an outstanding bio-logician’s case against gay marriage.
A rational, non-bigoted argument against gay marriage.
The thing which worries me about gay marriage is that the norms surrounding gay long-term relationships will be imported into the concept of marriage.
(The above is a media write-up of a study that found that in a study of 566 gay couples, only 45 percent had made the promise to be sexually monogamous. This is an example of a different moral norm surrounding gay long-term relationships.)
(In the above link is a NYTimes piece arguing that homosexual marriage could modernise (that is import different norms into) marriage as an institution.), specifically; “The traditional American marriage is in crisis, and we need insight,” he said, citing the fresh perspective gay couples bring to matrimony. “If innovation in marriage is going…

This is very true and inspirational.
“But life isn’t hard to manage when you’ve nothing to lose.” – Ernest Hemingway
Fearing death is instinctive. While fear of death stems from a variety of causes, there are a few common themes: fear of the after-life; fear of leaving behind loved ones; unattained goals; fear of not experiencing enough; and fear of not leaving behind a legacy. Most people don’t regularly think about their death; everyone knows it’s going to happen but it’s not imminent. Nevertheless, people are concerned with how they will be viewed once they leave this earth. The truth is that unless you are part of the .01% of people whose legacies will (maybe) live on forever, you will eventually be forgotten. Your name and everything you have accomplished in your life will be lost. Instead of feeling fear, I find this truth incredibly liberating.
Living my life based on others’ expectations is something…

Wow, how could you know?
I wrote this awhile back on my other blog. I thought I would share it here.
This person said it best. I agree with his words.
In this blog essay, “Everything Has Changed and Nothing Has Changed — The Supreme Court Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage,” Dr. R. Albert Mohler’s responds to yesterday’s decision handed down by the Supreme Court mandating the legalization of same-sex marriage in all fifty states. Mohler writes:
“The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest court in the land, and its decisions cannot be appealed to a higher court of law. But the Supreme Court, like every human institution and individual, will eventually face two higher courts. The first is the court of history, which will render a judgment that I believe will embarrass this court and reveal its dangerous trajectory. The precedents and arguments set forth in this decision cannot be limited to the right of same-sex couples to marry. If individual autonomy and equal protection mean that same-sex couples cannot be denied what is now defined as a fundamental…
