Tomorrow Is Easter!

March 30, 2013

Tomorrow is Easter!

There should be no doubt about our Government’s attack upon America’s traditional religions, its symbols and traditions. 

The facts are clear, our progressive Government is bent on destroying the one mammoth impediment to the radical transformation of our way of life to rank socialism.

I will not address this issue tomorrow…our great day of Christian celebration of triumph over the world’s forces of evil.

But today, I will attack these destructive forces with vigor.

Essential To Sociocultural Viability: A Belief in God

March 29, 2013

Essential To Sociocultural viability: A Belief in God

I have read extensively on the rise and decline of sociocultures.

The most central factor associated with the rise of a socioculture is a strong and organizing belief in God. The resulting advantages to the society and culture appear to be the adoption of a moral code that organizes and regularizes prosocial behavior. This strengthens trust amongst the population, which in turn aids cooperation among citizens and efficiencies in commerce.

A uniting faith in God also motivates the population to teach their faith to their children and to also naturally acculturate the children in the ways of their beloved society that has been blessed into strong existence by God.

A haunting historical observation is that when previously successful sociocultures enter relative modernity they tend to lose faith in God, the culture weakens and moral behavior dispates into chaos. Concurrently, the population becomes less civil, it becomes less fertile, and it ages into ineffectualness.

As with the aging person, nothing works as well as it once did and in time he or she is taken down by one, or a combination, of any number of common maladies.

None of this should be considered new news.

“The belief in a God All Powerful wise and good, is so essential to the moral order of the world and to the happiness of man, that arguments which enforce it cannot be drawn from too many sources nor adapted with too much solicitude to the different characters and capacities impressed with it.”

My Testimonial

March 26, 2013

My Testimonial

My wife of 50 years and I are Christians. Our Families have been Christians for Generations.

My blog is based upon the fact that science and religion are not incompatible. In fact psychological science has increasingly documented that, on average, those who practice their faith are happier, healthier, marry more, have more children, stay married longer and live longer than those who do not.

I believe that the scientific Laws of the Universe, including the Laws and Principles discovered by the science of psychology, are God’s Laws. I believe if we will live our lives, as individuals and as a socioculture, in accordance to those Laws, we will be more likely to live long and well and benefit theirs.

My blog addresses many contemporary issues from a conservative Judeo/Christian Faith and Values base. I also strongly address political issues when I judge that they are destructive to religious influences within our culture. I present that among all of the world’s religions, including secular humanism, Judeo/Christian Faiths are most resistant to the damaging effects of Modernity and Post-modern Philosophy.

Virtually all modern societies are growing old and are demographically in decline. Faithful America and Israel are the only two developed societies that are still maintaining their fertility rates at replacement levels. To fail in this, and to fail to teach our faith and culture to our children, is to fail among the competing cultures of the world.

Life for Christians is not for the faint-hearted, nor is my blog. I take tough issues head-on and I make my case on the basis of the Revealed Religious Wisdom’s of Natural Law in combination with modern Laws of science. These two great forces in the world are not in significant conflict. But one without the other is weakened.

God gave us science and science reveals the works of God.

Your Present: “Like a Rock!”

March 24, 2013

Your Present: “Like a Rock!

No, it’s not Veteran’s Day. But in places all around the globe, all branches of our military are in harm’s way. For the most part, they are  America’s finest young men and women

More generally, the wonderful song, “Like a rock”, is a reflection of the strength, endurance, courage and sense of invincibility that many of us experienced in our youth.

For those who felt it, it is something never-to-be forgotten: A radiant and heroic time now fading with the passing decades.

Please remember those in all branches of our military, as-well-as our brave civil servants, who serve and protect us every day 24/7.

Enjoy!   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygkfxQUfqi0

Judeo/Christian Faith Saves Nations

March 23, 2013

Judeo/Christian Faith Saves Nations

The following quotes are taken from David Goldman’s Book: How civilizations Die: (And Why Islam is Dying Too).
 
The main take-away from this stunning book, is that Judeo/Christian faith and values have been most resistant to the damaging effects of modernity and its religion of secular humanism. One pernicious effect of the latter two factors is  they inevitably lead to a loss of population fertility and decline of virtually all cultures so affected. 
 
 
He demonstrates that among a host of declining cultures, Islamic cultures are the most severely damaged by modernity. He presents that because Iran is on its own cultural death-course, it is a very desperate and dangerous socioculture.
 
Goldman observes that there are only two exceptions to this modernity/secularism rule: America and Israel.
 
He maintains that there are things special about the Judeo/Christian Faith that strengthen a love of children and life and bring evolutionary resilience to these sociocultures.
 
From this perspective,  Goldman’s following quotes should carry special meaning and face validity:
 
“America was founded by radical Protestants who sought to emulate Israel’s mission in the wilderness and succeeded in creating the only Christian nation that would survive the great wave of secularization and demographic decline of the past two generations. Remarkably, the only other advanced country to  sustain high fertility rates is the modern State of Israel.”
 
“Secular political science views nations as mechanical constructs, like watches. In this view what matters is whether the gears mesh properly and the mainspring holds its tension, for watches have no spiritual concerns. But what appears objective and scientific turns out in the broad context of the life and death of nations to be fantastical and unreal in the extreme, for nations that fail to reproduce their people will cease to exist. True political realism begins with Augustine’s concern: What is the character that fosters a people’s continuity rather than catastrophe?”
 
You will find the answer to St. Augustine’s question in this video.

U.S. Military Criticized About Sex Cases

March 18, 2013

U.S. Military Criticized About Sex Cases

Well, who would have ever imagined that? Sexual misconduct in the military!

It does not take a Ph.D. in psychology to understand and predict the results of putting women with horny young men under close-quarter, high stress conditions like intense combat zones, on Naval surface ships, and in submarines. Who on earth would be surprise by the occurrence of cases of sexual harassment (and allegations of same), consensual sex and actual pregnancies) as well as actual rapes. Also, throw flagrantly gay/lesbians into the thick fog of estrogen and androgen and what do you think will happen?

In an Associated Press article, published in the South Bend (In) Tribune on March 14, 2013, Donna Cassata and Richard Lardner documented the perfectly predictable outcome of our newly hetero/homo sexualized American Military.

Why do you think that historically, our military has worked to keep its women and men reasonably isolated from one another? Also, why do you think our military has also excluded professed homosexuals from its ranks, male and female.

The following quote is from the March 14th article:

“In a stinging rebuke of the military’s efforts to curb sexual assault, members of the Senate panel hammered Defense Department officials on Wednesday for making too little progress in combating the crimes and failing to improve a military justice system that victims describe a s slow ind uncaring.”

Amid Federal cuts to our military budgets, comes the irate insistence that we wage war on two, perhaps soon to be three or four fronts…maybe the world!

And now comes the following:

“What we need is a military with a fair and impartial criminal justice system, one that is run by professional and legal experts, not unit commanders,” said sergeant Rebekha Haverilla who was reported to have been raped while in the Army.

I certainly wish justice for Ms. Haverilla. But, her tragedy does not mask the fact that America is electing to maladaptively create a plethora of citizen and military behavior problems and then make debilitating sacrifices to generate solutions to the self-manufactured conduct problems, that are unlikely work.

As a Nation, we are defeating ourselves on many fronts. This particular self-defeat involves taking the greatest military machine in the world, designed to destroy our enemies, and warping it into a giant feckless “tail-chase” of military hetero/homo sexual legal cases.

Wake-Up America!

Obama’s Disrespect for Our Military Is Found In “The Third Row”

Obama’s Disrespect for Our Military Is Found In “The Third Row”

Obama has done many things to weaken or dilute our military (Gays in Military and women in close combat and on submarines). 

The following is just one more example of what I am referring to. Obama’s Third Row Treatment of a Medal of Honor recipient’s family and fellow soldiers.
