Go to Your Morals to take a quiz and explore the assumptions upon which you have built your personal morality.
My results are in the picture below. I am green, the typical liberal is blue and conservatives are red. I am fascinated with the liberal abhorrence of loyalty and authority, two virtues that are demanded in being members of churches. No wonder most liberals stop going to church.
“Conservatives are reduced, and will continue to be reduced, to fighting as guerrillas.”
Thus Rod Dreher. I encourage you to read the whole article. Being a conservative Christian in the decades to come is going to be interesting, and it’s going to require bravery and mettle the likes of which we haven’t had to show.
Thus the Maverick Philosopher.
“The Supreme Court justices in the majority in the 5-4 Hobby Lobby decision are all male: Alito, Scalia, Thomas, Roberts, and Kennedy. If someone seeks to discredit their decision on that ground, say this:

about Eva Brann. She’s on my top ten list of intellectuals.

“An ignorant man, who is not fool enough to meddle with his clock, is however sufficiently confident to think he can safely take to pieces, and put together at his pleasure, a moral machine of another guise, importance, and complexity, composed of far other wheels, and springs, and balances, and counteracting and co-operating powers. Men little think how immorally they act in rashly meddling with what they do not understand.” — Edmund Burke
Those who want to tear the world down need to tell us what they plan on putting in its place.
This is actually an older blog of mine. I’m resurrecting it using the power of Castle Grayskull. Stay tuned for stuff that will “literally” blow your mind.
