**Posted by Phineas I came across an article this morning by Tim Carney of the Washington Examiner in which sees the current efforts to restrict our Second Amendment rights as another front in the “culture war,” a war in which the Left sees itself as morally superior to everyone else.

**Posted by Phineas A philosophical question for you from Encounter Books and narrated by, I think, Bill Whittle: My short answer is “No, and I’d  rather not live in Europe, thanks.” (Even though I live in one of the states closest to “might as well just join the EU and get it over with.”) If […]

Posted by: ST on March 25, 2013 at 12:50 pm » 6 Comments

Read this over the weekend from Pastor Rick Warren on Twitter, and thought it was worth sharing here: “Popularity has no bearing on what’s true and what’s false.

**Posted by Phineas Consider this to be another example in support of this post: Holocaust denial is antisemitism, it is Jew-hatred, and it is endemic at the highest levels of the Egyptian government: To Celebrate Holocaust Remembrance Day two days ago,   Fathi Shihab-Eddim, a senior figure close to President Morsi who is now responsible for […]

 

Arab Spring: Egypt imprisons family for conversion to Christianity

**Posted by Phineas That new government we helped to power is sure turning out fine, isn’t it? I mean, under Islamic Law, they could have been sentenced to death. Instead, for merely exercising the right of conscience inherent in all persons, a mother and her sons get “only” fifteen years in prison: The criminal court […]

**Posted by Phineas Actually, I don’t know if they’re hypocritical so much as clueless, but the result is the same: yet another deep, meaningful campaign in which a bunch of vapid airheads go in front of a camera and repeat slogans over and over, hoping to brainwash you into submission, like a bunch of zombies.

The hypocrisy of elitist twerps, such as Bob Costas

Posted by: Phineas on December 4, 2012 at 1:01 pm » 3 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Armed protection for me, but not for thee: Bob Costas’ gun control rant was bad but made worse by one key point — he lives much of his life with the benefit of armed security. (i.e., men with guns). If you’ve ever been to an NFL game this point is academic. The […]
