For Corbyn, it is as if the Berlin Wall never fell (Theodore Dalrymple)

For a while following the collapse of communism in Europe, it looked as though there might be an apology forthcoming from those who had devoted their intellectual and political efforts to whitewashing the Soviet Union or praising the ‘people’s republics’ of China and Vietnam. But the moment was short-lived. Within a decade the left-wing establishment…

The Casuistry of the Man in Black

  For a good reason there is a Jesuit pope for the first time since Saint Peter. Following the Reformation, Casuistry is a characteristic of the Jesuits. And this pope is a Jesuit. For the first time we have a pope in black, fulfilling in this way the prediction of Our Lady of La Sallete.…

The incoherence of the ethical theory of Peter Singer

  When we analyze an ethical theory, we ought to bear in mind the following: 1/ the ethical theory’s consistency or internal coherence; 2/ the consistency or internal coherence of that specific ethical theory when seen in relation to other conceptions of the theory’s author (in this case, Peter Singer); 3/ the reaction of our…

Liberalism and Islam

Originally posted on The Orthosphere:
I have been thinking about the coziness between Liberalism and Islam, which became evident about twenty seconds after the jihad attack on the World Trade Center, and now drives policy in the USA, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Scandinavia.  A pair of complementary questions put themselves that I propose…

European Union political double standards #Greece

Remember when the Austrians elected their Freedom Party into government? The EU declared it an unacceptable (to them) government for being right-wing and slapped sanctions on Austria.

Greek debt vs. Nazi Germany debt #Greece #Germany #Syriza

  “Syriza, Greece’s new ruling party, makes an attractive argument for writing off Greek debt: Wasn’t Germany, now the biggest opponent of debt relief, itself the recipient of unprecedented largesse in 1953, when its foreign debt was halved? Attractive, however, doesn’t mean convincing. Parallels between today’s Greece and 1953 Germany are demagoguery, pure and simple.”…

Francis-Bergoglio Now Favors "Transsexuals" #pope

  Francis-Bergoglio continues to astonish true Catholics with his perverted doctrine and behavior. Having said that he cannot judge homosexuals, now he is consorting with transsexuals. On January 26, 2015, he received in a private audience, which many Newchurchers would give their eye tooth for, a transsexual from Spain and his “girlfriend” after the man…

What’s the #pope said?

  If you say that “the pope said”, you’re probably wrong ’cause the pope never says what you think he said. The pope ever says what he wants to be said, but what’s said is never what the pope says. You ought to differentiate between what the pope says, on one hand, and what is…
