A Question from a Reader

March 14, 2011

 

MARI writes:

I read with interest your post on a group who would like to protect Western civilization and its Christian heritage and influence. I am not Caucasian, but I am a Christian. Will there be a place for
those like myself who love the Lord and regard Western Civilization highly, in this society of Caucasians? I hope I have not offended you. I have always thought that I would like a place in such a society. To assure you, I am not a liberal intending on starting trouble. I have always wanted to be a part of a society which regards highly the Lord, His ways, the Constitution of the U.S.A. to name a few things. I grew up in a Muslim country and lived there for almost 18 years. And there is no place like the U.S. This is where I call home. I think multiculturalism can only work if it is based on conservative Christian principles. Otherwise, it degenerates into trouble.

A Famous Divorcee

March 14, 2011

CAROLINE NORTON was the mother of modern divorce in England. She actively campaigned for liberalizing divorce laws in the early Victorian era in an effort to leave her husband and retain custody of her children. She succeeded in lobbying for the Custody of Infants Act of 1839, which made it possible for mothers to procure custody of young children. She was also influential in passage of a later law transferring adjudication of marital dissolution from ecclesiastical to civil court.

I find this photograph of her intriguing.  Her entire expression seems to say, “Eat my shoes!” However, Norton was opposed in some senses to the modern liberal view of marriage. “The natural position of woman is inferiority to man. Amen! That is a thing of God’s appointing, not of man’s devising. I believe it sincerely, as part of my religion. I never pretended to the wild and ridiculous doctrine of equality,” she wrote in The Times in 1838.

Schooling Around

OBAMA-VISITS-A-SCHOOL

SURELY, no president in history has spent as much time in school classrooms as President Obama, pictured here visiting a Virginia high school last week with Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard. At least once a week, or so it seems, Obama pops into a public school somewhere in America. The Great Unifier believes education is the great unifier. And for many Americans, both conservative and liberal, it is. Public education is the one issue surrounded with a halo of incontestability. How could anyone begrudge more funds or more energy or more ideas devoted to our schoolchildren? How could anyone not like a man who takes the time to be with children and who wants to boost our global competitiveness? The school is the natural playground of the liberal politician. It is the place he is most at home because there he feels secure in his good intentions. Education reform is the path to political holiness.

 

The Pro-Abortion Young

March 14, 2011

 

SEE THIS video of a recent pro-abortion rally of mostly white young people in Chicago. Leaving aside their crude behavior and depressingly ugly clothes and hairstyles, it is interesting how these protesters seem to be oblivious of the thousands of infertile couples eager to adopt babies or of the fact that since abortion became widely available the number of children raised without fathers has skyrocketed or of the below-replacement level fertility of their own people.

What kind of old people will these sheltered, boorish youths be someday? Our colleges are factories that churn out ignorance, crudity and raw ugliness. Read More »
