One cannot use reductio ad absurdum as an argument, because the SJW cannot understand that you are being sarcastic. And thus, you get labelled as a Troll: the best illustration here is Theodore Beale (Vox Day) who many disassociate themselves from because the boy is rude and provocative. He does have reasons, including the fact … Continue reading On the projection of illogic.
I am not having a great Sunday morning. The blogs have been down, (which still continues: the connection is cutting in and out throughout this) and I seem to be getting flooded with spam relating to a Lipitor lawsuit. But today’s text is important: it reflects again on the duty of us lay people. The … Continue reading Beware of those who blind you to your faults [Matthew 7]
I woke up late this morning, and found a series of emails saying that the site was down. Which seems to be happening intermittently — I have contacted the webhosts and they are onto it, but as I was typing this the connection is cutting in and out continually. Needless to say, I have backed … Continue reading The signal can be broken [Administrivia]
I was checking the links and noted this comment by Hearthie, from the now dormant traditional Christianity. It is an example of what hospitality means, and plain common sense. You know, when the banger with the pitbull chases his dog over to me, it’s not like I don’t feel that fear moment. But I wasn’t … Continue reading Love drives out fear.
I avoid crowds, and I mistrust the publick religion of this time. So, although I did watch a documentary on Andrew Russel last night (and I have read his autobiography: a good son of the Anglican church he was: and after the first world war he put his energy into the rehabilitation of veterans) I … Continue reading The duty of laity (on ANZAC day). [III John]
I repeat myself a lot. I talk about errors a lot. I try to talk about reformation a lot. For I consider repetition good: I mistrust novelty, and I need to continually remind myself of these things. This is quite unlike the academic world, where the careful scholarship of meta analysis will not get funded … Continue reading A suspicion of novelty [ II Jn ]
It appears that some people think this is real. Such people deserve all the mockery they get. And to avoid the butthurt, the petunias from the thought police want to gag you. Do not be them. Do not be like them. Like this:Like Loading…
The last sentence of this verse used to puzzle me. But no longer. I see too many people who follow their ideologies and worship them alone, damning those who do not. Who expect perfection for all others, and forgiveness for themselves regardless. We have to keep ourselves from idols, particularly if they are our ideologies. … Continue reading Against this postmodern apostasy [I John 5]
If this kind of arrant assholery occurred among people below the age of consent we would call it child abuse. But since this is a university it is more akin to fraud. A university is supposed to educate. To communicate to a moderately intelligent person, who has shown that they have not merely basic literacy … Continue reading Peak academic stupid.
The normal service of the lectionary has been resumed. We have a passage that requires more coffee, for thinking my way through this makes my head hurt. Yet it is important: for within it are a few promises those of faith stake their life on. That our belief is not in man, or our tribe, … Continue reading The Blood of Christ, not the blood of the tribe [I Jn 5]
