Confess Don't Gloat
Hubris Is A Sin

One should remember, if one is Catholic, that the Confessional is for the confession and repentance of sins, not the boasting of good works. ;-) Of course, it’s also important to remember one’s catechism so that one can tell difference between sin and community service.

That’s How It Is

Modern Depravity
That’s How It Is These Days

There’s not really that more that needs to be added to this cartoon. That’s just the way it is now in what is left of America. Normative religious faith is vilified and sexual abnormality is lauded. That doesn’t mean, however, that that’s how it should be.

A Liberal’s Principles

Posted in Ethics & Morality, Politics on April 6th, 2014

One must always remember and understand that a Liberal’s principles are contextual and the context that they’re based upon is power.

When Liberals Are Weaker

When I am weaker than you, I ask you for freedom because that is according to your principles.

When Liberals Are Stronger

When I am stronger than you, I take away your freedom because that is according to my principles.

 
But then, Liberalism is the politics of power. It’s prime tenet is the redistribution of all forms of power from the People to an “elite” group of Liberal power-brokers for further redistribution to the Liberal faithful and the minority chattel that they keep.
