by Skip May 30, 2013

Adding on from “Moral Ambiguous” is this snippet from Imprimis (emphasis mine, I urge you to go read the whole thing – GRTWT) explains it well: The idea seems to be that moral views historically supported by religion—which of course means all moral views other than modern secular ones—are constitutionally suspect.

“Morally Ambiguous” – And Secularists everywhere go “Amen!”

by Skip May 30, 2013

That used to be “Morally Straight” – kinda hard to be (or teach) as our society becomes more and more Secular – which is already leading to “situation ethics” or “relative morality”.  This will result in a time there will be no absolute right and wrong – so how to hold people accountable for something […]

Sequester Jester, Furlough Schmurlough – BigGov Is Hiring!

by Scott Morales May 30, 2013

Turns out the administration and Democrat news peddling about the sequestration leveling utter destruction on our country is apocryphal nonsense, though its not because they didn’t try.  And it’s actually a little disappointing.
