Prager U – God vs. Atheism

by Steve MacDonald April 7, 2014

Belief in God, according to atheists, is irrational, illogical, and dumb. Belief that the universe created itself is, they say, intelligent, rational, and based in science. This is simply false. Nothing can create itself. Everything has a cause–including the universe. That cause, argues Peter Kreeft, professor of philosophy at Boston College, is God, the “unmoved […]

What We Need Now Is the Party Of Grit!

by Steve MacDonald November 25, 2013
Thumbnail image for What We Need Now Is the Party Of Grit!

Inalienable rights require no reference to gender, age, religion, race, none of that.    We have long passed the point in our society where invoking these things for any kind of leverage is anything more than the work of Rake’s, Mountebanks, and Charlatans. Opportunity in modern America also exists for anyone willing to seek it out.  […]

The State Religion

by Steve MacDonald November 11, 2013

If belief in God were nothing more than a notion produced by human beings, an electrochemical fabrication of the human mind expressed to explain, comfort, or persuade others, what makes the idea of atheism any different? You can’t articulate the absence of belief based on your biochemically manufactured worldview without making the act of expressing […]

Michael Barone – On Faith and Global Warming

by Steve MacDonald September 26, 2013
Thumbnail image for Michael Barone – On Faith and Global Warming

Michael Barone has a piece in the Washington Examiner whose thrust is to address the UN panels historic downgrading of past apocalyptic rhetoric regarding mans so-called impact on global climate.  We’ve apparently been given a 17 year waiver from the universe, something the ‘war’mists call a pause, a pause that conservatives note better explains the […]

So Many Things Not Right About a Monument to Atheism

by Steve MacDonald July 3, 2013

If Atheist’s believe that there can be no God, or that there is no God, wouldn’t the absence of evidence of belief in God be a testament to the belief system of non-believers?  You know, the way darkness is evidence of the absence of light.  You need creation to make light, but darkness is just […]

Facebook Doodlings – in which I may have called out Lloyd over at TreeHugger

by Skip February 18, 2013

Well, I do go over to TH from time to time, and even leave comments.  Well, there was a post by Lloyd (“90 by 50 plan could reduce New York City’s emissions by 90% by 2050“), someone that doesn’t always take kindly to Conservative or Libertarians assaulting what seems to be an Environmental Communitarian mantra.  […]

Seasoned Greetings

by Steve MacDonald November 20, 2012

The Holidays are upon us.  It’s that special time of year when atheism gets more Constitutional religious freedom than any actual religion, the lefts devotion to separation of church and state does not prevent union government employees from enjoying paid days off for…religious holidays, and we get to remind ourselves that what believing in a […]

Notable Quote: Government As A Protector From Natural Evils

by Steve MacDonald November 7, 2012

The ideas of religion and government are closely connected; and whilst we receive government as a thing necessary, or even useful to our well-being, we shall in spite of us draw in, as a necessary, though undesirable consequence, an artificial religion of some kind or other.  To this the vulgar will always be voluntary slaves; […]

I’d Like to Know What New Hampshire Democrats Think About This?

by Steve MacDonald July 17, 2012

I’d like to know what New Hampshire Democrats think about this? Under President Obama’s healthcare law, the HHS can levy $100 per employee, per day against institutions that won’t comply with the (contraceptive) mandate. Therefore, religious employers with hundreds of employees could be fined millions of dollars each year. A 50-employee institution, for example, would […]

Socialism’s Assault on Religion vs. Industry as Virtue

by Steve MacDonald March 11, 2012

The Marxist/secularist assault on religion is well documented and continues today on many fronts.  But one of the reasons for attacking Religion in the first place, is that the foundations of the Puritan/Protestant faith–in America at least–never viewed material success as an obstacle to spiritual salvation.  In fact they encouraged it.

Every Issue is a Social Issue

by Steve MacDonald February 29, 2012

The single greatest shortcoming among the secularists, the non-religious right, most of the left, the social justice “small ‘r’ religious left, and the mass of humans too confounded (or disinterested) by it all to be called anything but in the middle, is that humans are essentially selfish and immoral creatures whom–if left unchecked–will inevitably devolve […]

Data Point – Importance: First Amendment Right or Free Contraceptives?

by Skip February 25, 2012

Gallup has the latest on the views concerning those who believe that the enumerated First Amendment Right to Religious Freedom should reign supreme, or Obamacare forcing religious institutions to provide “free” contraceptives, abortifacients, sterilization, or abortion services to those they cover.  First chart is broken out by sex: Next is support shown by the religious […]

The Shrill Kathy On Religion, Fatties, Food Stamps, And Republicans

by Rick Olson December 16, 2011

“I have a great diet. You’re allowed to eat anything you want, but you must eat it with naked fat people.” —Ed Bluestone It’s a different kind of day when the Shrill Kathy graces the pages of the Union Leader with feigned pity for Republican candidates. And what can be said of the Shrill Kathy where […]

If You Are Not Following Me On Twitter….

by Steve MacDonald July 20, 2011

Twitter inspires the opportunity to aggravate the leftists who insist on following conservatives there. Not every witticism will fit on Twitter. Sometimes you have to write a blog and post a link. And then there are the thoughts that are too short to blog and too long to tweet. (Some things can’t be said in under 140 characters.)

Another Plague On Marriage (and the culture..?)

by Steve MacDonald April 2, 2011

Pornography is an addiction. The pleasure derived from it is neurochemical, no different than any other pharmaceutical high. Men are particularly susceptible. And the culture continues to shift towards a society where porn is like aspirin. Cheap, readily available, and an acceptable daily supplement for whatever ails you. But it is no less destructive to the consumer (I’m not addressing the affects inside the industry here) than any of the other declining cultural ‘advances’ of the past few decades.

It’s The Christian Thing To Do.

by Steve MacDonald March 14, 2011

First and foremost, by advocating for the remedy of social ills by statutory action Bishop Robinson immediately contradicts his own moral objection. The only way for the state to attempt care for any class of persons under any set of circumstances–moral or otherwise–is to use the force of law, under threat of punishment, to extract the necessary income from whomever it chooses. (A sacrifice perpetrated on the weak by the strong–under force of temporal law–is not also social abuse?)

Straight? Republicans Want To Meddle In Your Marriage, Too

by Steve MacDonald February 8, 2011

If a bunch of Libertarians and Republicans manages to take the politics out (of marriage) and creates real, un-prejudiced marriage equality, that would ruin everything the democrats have worked for.

Out On A Lim

by Steve MacDonald January 12, 2011

I can’t count the number of self declared “regular churchgoers” that I know who have no idea what it actually means to be Christian, or take away any meaningful lessons from the experience. I see them struggle with life as if completely unequipped to handle even the simplest challenges. Every new book, idea, plan, or program that comes along is the next path to understanding and happiness. And for a few weeks or even months they think they have found it until it collapses under its own weight.

The True Meaning Of Christmas

by Steve MacDonald December 23, 2010

Starting in 2011, public sector workers will no longer get days off related to any religious holiday, nor will they receive any compensation for these days unless they actually work. If as the liberals and secularists suggest, that we can’t have any God in government, then no one in government should get a paid day off as a result.

Government As God

by Steve MacDonald December 18, 2010

For as long as I can recall the New Hampshire Democrat Party has been using the “Press Release” to make up crap about people, misrepresent the words they use, change the meaning of their words, or in some cases creating out of whole cloth whatever perception they think will advance their clawing obsession with accumulating political power by damaging anyone or anything that stands between them and their Pinky and The Brain like nightly quest (minus the Brain) to take over the world.
