Theological Musings

Once in a while you get a strange convergence of ideas. Seemingly disjoint ideas blend together to provide insight. The signposts of life start pointing in a certain direction. Christians often interpret this as the leading of the Holy Spirit, but care must be taken in doing so. Recently Boxer …

Anonymity and Authorship

In a recent post I criticized anonymity in the manosphere. Those who refuse to share their names online are cowards. People who take controversial stances, but don’t put their name behind it, are not leaders. They have no skin in the game. There is a group of people who do have …

The Bible, Minus Cucks, Removes God

In our society a woman (who initiates divorces ~60-70% of the time) can take you to court and win alimony and child support for any, no-fault cause whatsoever. The purported goal of no-fault divorce is to protect against abuse of a wife. It does this, but at a heavy cost …

Sacred Tradition of the Old Testament

During the Q&A segment of the debate between Catholic Tim Staples and Reformed Baptist James White, Staples claimed that the validity of the Jewish canon required sacred tradition outside of the canon itself. This claim requires that the words of God contained within the Jewish canon are not, of themselves, sufficient: some …

Anonymous Leadership

I often write about marriage and the threats to it (e.g. feminism and divorce). I follow authors who write about these topics often. Many aggressively espouse patriarchal views of marital leadership. Recently the anonymous Deep Strength suggested that “your future wife should be happy to take your name”, arguing that a …

The Roles of Men and Women

As I lurk here and there on the internet, I occasionally run into those gems of insight that encapsulate my views exactly. Behold the words of one Boxer: My read of the bible doesn’t strictly say that women are second class. They’re just different. They have different strengths and a …

Did Jesus Give Peter the Papacy?

I’ve written in the past on the logical difficulties with the papacy. The Catholic Church uses fallacious reasoning to justify itself.[1] Doctrine is produced by papal authority. Those doctrines are defended by appeals to papal authority. Papal authority is defended by papal authority. Even the doctrines themselves are used to defend …

Why I Don’t Vote

I don’t vote. As a Christian I often take heat from other Christians for this stance. The argument is purely utilitarian: If you don’t vote for party A[1] then Party B will cause a much greater evil. If you don’t vote for the presumptive best candidate, you must therefore be held …

Bias in the News: Washington Post edition

Regarding illegal border crossings and separating children from their parents, Salvador Rizzo of the Washington Post’s fact checker concluded with this: The doublespeak coming from Trump and top administration officials on this issue is breathtaking, not only because of the sheer audacity of these claims but also because they keep …

Positivist Leftism

I’ve been interested in leftism’s relationship with Christianity for some time, especially the consequences of feminism and how it destroys families. A recent post by Boxer led to a discussion on the philosophy that drives feminism’s destructive promotion of promiscuity, abortion, divorce and single-motherhood. Unfortunately the discussion derailed on the question of what, …
