Amusing for a Few Reasons

Stereotypes, anyone?

A Woman Believes...

That just because she was given a mouth and an emotional inclination to talk that she has the right to use it as she pleases.

Hence the list of sins of the word are much more important for women.

Some More Thoughts on Podle's Next Book

You can find the link to the excerpt here.

Was Nietzsche correct in characterizing Christianity as a "slave morality" which men with spirit should rightly reject? How should St. Paul's admonishments be understood, then? As an implicit approval of slavery? (Or approval only of just forms of slavery and not "chattel" slavery?) How long did it take for slavery to disappear from Rome? Is it correct to say that serfdom replaced slavery? And how was the rise of serfdom linked to changes in the societies of Germanic tribes?

How should the reaction of those unjustly oppressed or "disrespected" by traditional elites (landowners) be understood? Did the elites commit the first sin by failing in charity and Christian fraternity? Could the Christian churches have acquiesced in the rise of medieval kingdoms, followed by the modern nation-state, in different ways that would have prevented the emasculation of their men?

What's Going on with FOCUS

I will try to return to this later... does FOCUS have the key to evangelizing the United States, as it is promoted by George Weigel and others? Or is it still behind in understanding the major spiritual problems of the United States?

Women in charge of the MIC

Steve Sailer: Trust Women!, referring to this article: How women took over the military-industrial complex

An interesting thesis from Leon Podles

Though I have my doubts; it is one thing to reject Christianity because it has been feminized. But it is enough to do the demonic things done by many of the leftists during the Spanish Civil War. Even if Christianity is no longer part of one's identity, what of country or king? Or upholding the aristocracy?

Still, if women were in charge of the spiritual formators, that is a problem, and reveals that if there was a form of patriarchy in Spain, it was lacking in something very important with respect to the role of the fathers, who should have been in charge of religious education and the primary exmeplar of a Christian life. Did they abdicate this role because they preferred some idol or pagan way? Or was it due to something else after the Reconquest and then the decline of the Spanish Empire. And are there parallels with Spanish-speaking territories in Ibero-America?

Roots Of Spanish Anticlericalism by ROD DREHER

The landowners thought they were good Christians because they gave charity to the poor; but what the poor, especially the men among them, wanted was respect. The men saw that the Church, the priests, could attract women and would interfere in male sexual pleasures, even in marriage. The revolutionaries were not ideologists, but wanted recognition, independence, and respect, so that they could be respected by others as men and respect themselves as men.

Would they even care for the words of St. Paul? And would the words of St. Paul concerning the relationship of slaves and masters even be relevant?

So I finished the rest of the series, and I did rewatch the assassination scene.

Like Korean dramas that have similar set-ups, Bodyguard is a drama written for a woman. I am not sure how a man could enjoy watching this, especially with all of the SJW messaging thrown in -- minorities in every scene, women in authority, and so on. I'm surprised there was actually little LGQBTXYZ messaging in this one. Maybe in the next series. As for the mystery part of the procedural, it actually isn't bad for a contemporary BBC production but you'd have to sit through all of the SJW noise to appreciate it.

Is Ouellet Part of the Problem?

Or is the problem a Latin conception of the Church being above the authority of the state with regards to even civil matters and civil cases? If the Church hierarchy won't agree to the state policing it, then will it allow lay people to do so? How can the hierarchy be made accountable? (Appealing to the pope as the chief ruler of the Church is not the solution.)

If only a Japanese studio had been chosen to animate a new adaptation.
