Cheap Labor: Slaves and Illegals

In a First Things commentary, Elizabeth Powers notes that the justification used for cheap immigrant labor, legal and illegal, is the same used for slavery before the Civil War: without the cheap labor, the economy would collapse.

She also notes the illogic of the sex-education rationale: you can’t stop kids from pre-marital sex, so teach them responsible sex.  What’s responsible, she asks, about sex outside of marriage?  Moreover, history belies the contention that kids will engage in pre-marital sex, no matter what.

Abortion Right vs Moral Duty

An article posted on the Intellectual Conservative website brings a useful perspective to the abortion debate: not a woman’s right vs right to life, but every parent’s moral obligation and society’s survival.

Without Faith There is No Hope

Islam needs no armies to overrun Europe.  The emptiness of Europe’s secular culture leaves Western Europeans unwilling to resist, unable to fight for their own survival.

With our liberal-progressive ethos, which is entirely atheistic and philosophically materialist, we will be next.

American Ideals and Same-Sex Marriage

Words remain the same, but lose their meaning when twisted to fit ideological aims.  One such word is equality.

Democrats’ Deadly Political Strategy

A time-table for near-term pullout in Iraq, the Democrats’ central political issue, panders to the worst aspects of human character and unnecessarily costs the lives of American military personnel.

Islam Added to the Time-Line

At the suggestion of Phillip South, the historical time-line has been revised to include the relentless attacks by Islam, which formed a constant background of terror in Christendom for a thousand years beginning in 622 AD. 

The purpose is to emphasize that today’s warlike aggression inherent in Islam is nothing new.

Click on the “Historical Time-Line” link in the right-hand column of the main web page to review the additions.

More Fuel on the Evolutionary Pyre

Darwinian evolutionists and the other warring camps in evolutionary biology can’t even agree upon rationalizations for the discrepancies in their own hypotheses, such as classifying species.

Vast, unbridgeable chasms in evolutionary theory appear when evolutionary biology is scrutinized by truly scientific research in the physical sciences.  One of the latest is at this website, which Barton Bennett brought to my attention.
