"Seek out the society of your boon companions, drink, play, talk bawdy, and amuse yourself. One must sometimes commit a sin out of hate and contempt for the Devil, so as not to give him the chance to make one scrupulous over mere nothings…" –Luther

If Catholicism perpetuates itself, why is it dead in Europe? It’s certainly doomed in Mexico, for the same reason it was doomed in Western Europe by 1970: People that are fundamentally hostile to everything the Christian faith are entirely in control of all the civic institutions which form children’s minds. We like to make fun […]

I really don’t feel much like writing much anymore, anywhere. The Social Justice Warriors are going to get everything they want. While we fret about being forced to host gay weddings, they’re already teeing up transexualism as the next civil rights crusade. I can’t wait for the first discrimination lawsuit to hit the courts because […]

NT Wright also thinks the UN is a great force for good in the world.

Your bewildering […]

I mean, yeah, Internet whining got Mozilla to fire its CEO. So I guess, yeah, mass-scale cyber-crying is good for making people who care about others thinking they’re nice wave token gestures in the direction of some social justice crusade or another. But 90% of the reason for doing it is preening and letting everyone […]

Oh, a bunch of whiners got someone to take down a blog post? Yeah, that matters. #Kony2012 #BanBossy #BringBackOurGirls #YesAllSpecialSnowflakes

The purpose of marching in a protest is to signal that there’s a mob capable of violence if it doesn’t get its way. Hashtivism is just status signaling.

Evangelicalism isn’t in for a wild ride so much that it, like all other forms of Christianity in the West, is simply going to disappear. Graham wasn’t a modern celebrity pastor. He was a celebrity revivalist. It’s a bit different. He was the last and the biggest of the traveling revivalists. The idea of a […]

My current church has 50 people on a Sunday, and it’s going to die out within 15 years. Good job, Lutherans. Good job.
