Language, meaning, culture and government fiat

Topics: 

I don't wish to confuse anyone in my use of the term marriage, or of allied terms, such as matrimony, wedlock, wedding, etc. If the government decides that these terms mean something other than what they currently mean, I'm ultimately fine with that, although I would prefer that government not deliberately alter the meanings of common terms.

The government can choose to call a circle a square, and vice versa. That doesn't mean that I will use such terms in a way that will confuse people.

Real love is oriented to God.

Topics: 

Real love of neighbor, when it is the highest kind of love, is sacrificial and it is oriented along the love that God has for us. That love desires, by its nature, the redemption of the one loved, that the loved one will be with God for all eternity.

When our love is oriented in this way, we do not become tools of the loved one's sinful desires. In psychological terms, we don't become co-dependent and share in the addict's sickness.

More news from the "war on women"?

Topics: 

Ms. Fulwiler was surprised, and then had an "Aha!" moment. See "The Courage of Pope Paul VI."

Real vs. Phony

Topics: 

If you've been paying attention to the President's forays into the political arena, you are aware that he is dismissing the growing list of scandals as "distractions" and "phony." I leave it to you to determine whether or not this approach will benefit either him or his party (or, for that matter, the country) in the end.
