AOC is Right! The World is Going to End in 12 Years Because of Climate Change

What Happened Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that the world is going to end in 12 years because of climate change, and the right excoriated her for it, mocked her relentlessly, and pointed out how arbitrary and untrue it is. But those conservatives are wrong! AOC’s statement is very true if understood for its true meaning. What She Meant I’m all about “authorial intent” on this blog, and I understand what the “author” of those words (AOC) meant by them, unlike my fellow conservatives. They must be understood from a post-modern and relativistic standpoint. To clarify AOC’s true and accurate meaning, we … [Read more]

How to Debate Gun Control

I Believe Progress Can Be Made I believe progress can actually be made on the gun control issue, we simply must engage in rational, reasonable debate. Let me paint a picture of the last 30 some-odd discussions I’ve had on this issue. One side wants to frame the other side as heartless monsters if they don’t support an “assault rifles ban” (or an outright gun ban in many cases) and the other side just laughs at the first side, covers its ears, and says “You’re too stupid to talk to, you don’t know anything about guns.” 80-90% of the people … [Read more]

You’re not a Sinner Because You’re a Homosexual

This is an open letter to those of my friends who would call themselves homosexuals who are tired of being called sinners because of it: I’m sorry. I’m sorry that so many Christians look at one aspect of your life and make a judgment against you because of it. I’m sorry that our society has elevated one issue to a place of prominence it does not deserve because of the actions of people on both sides of the issue. I’m sorry that so many Christians have spoken so carelessly about a subject that is so delicate and that you hold … [Read more]

Abortion Isn’t Legal

I decided to sit down and actually read the Roe v Wade decision. I suggest doing it yourself. Here’s a link to it if you’re so inclined. Many people are unfamiliar with what it actually argues and why. If they know anything about it, they know “Roe v. Wade made abortion legal in all 50 states.” They are wrong in that assessment. Let me summarize the argument that the court actually made in very plain English: We think a mother has a constitutional right to an abortion (in some situations), under the “right of privacy” primarily “found” in the ninth … [Read more]

The Day the Music Died

“As is consistently recognized in civil rights cases, the desire to accommodate others’ discomfort cannot justify a policy that singles out and disadvantages a particular class of students.”[1] A chilling quote from the letter sent from the Justice Department to all the school districts in the United States. It is the letter that represents a monumental day in my mind: the day the music died. If you don’t know what I’m referring to, “The Obama administration [has issued] a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender … [Read more]
