The true nature of the conflict over sexual mores and civil order.

Topics: 

When it comes to society's claimed consensus regarding homosexuality and homosexual relations, there is a moral issue and a sacramental one. The moral issue is about unchaste sexual behavior. The sacramental issue is about the meaning of marriage. One can abhor the former without abusing or refusing to have civil contact with those who choose to indulge in it. There is no inherent moral or civil conflict in that.

Indeed, what difference does it make?

Topics: 

Former Secretary Clinton notoriously asked "What difference at this point does it make?" regarding the motivation of the terrorists who attacked the American embassy in Benghazi. Laying aside the issue of why motivation is, generally speaking, important, we can ask ourselves whether our system has shifted so far out of balance that the question of what has motivated our politicians to make destructive choices for so long may soon become irrelevant.

Topics: 

I highly recommend this article on WDTPRS about Pope Francis' comments on the insufficiency of "trickle down" economics.

Scientism, Fideism and the Breakdown of Society

Topics: 

Morals are inextricably connected to faith and world view. To think otherwise is to not understand what any of the three is actually about. To pretend otherwise is to be intolerant of other's views. One of the fundamental problems society has today is not that there are gays, lesbians, etc., or that there are socialists, communists or jingoists in our midst. The problem is that we seem unable to recognize the moral boundaries we all live by or the compromises that will enable us to live in peace.
