Flotsam & Jetsam (10/24)

Postmodern Jargon – This passage from Nancy Pearcey’s Saving Leonardo is hilarious, disturbing, and downright sad.

Seek Ye First… – “Young people are not turning into adults. They’re not getting jobs or getting married. They are, instead, traipsing in aimless circles, not growing up, not maturing, not living life. We are a culture of everlasting Peter Pans.”

Bultitude Records and Brother Down – Well, this looks like all kinds of cool.

Fecundophobia: The Growing Fear of Children and Fertile Women – “The media remind us regularly that the most important cultural value relative to family life is what’s euphemistically called ‘choice.’ The choice of whether to have kids or not is held so sacrosanct that our laws permit the decision to be made many months after a new human life begins. Some even advocate extending the choice to a period of time after birth. So why the weird reaction to people receiving children as a blessing instead of fighting them tooth and nail with hormones, chemicals, surgery and scissors? Do we need some remedial courses in how babies are made?”

Why We Should Legalize Murder for Hire – A scathing bit of satire from Betsy Childs. After all, murder for hire is an uncomfortable subject, but “this is not a decision that anyone else can make for a woman.”

Professor Accent – Two thumbs way up.

Four Legacies of Feminism – Dennis Prager writes, “In sum, thanks to feminism, very many women slept with too many men for their own happiness; postponed marriage too long to find the right man to marry; are having hired hands do much of the raising of their children; and find they are dating boy-men because manly men are so rare.”

We Are Going to Home School Our Kids – “… but only because we hate education.” Walsh takes government education for a walk. And shoots it in the head.

Twelve Questions to Ask Your Pro-Choice Friends –  A fantastic piece from Matt.

“The Christian shoemaker does his duty not by putting little crosses on the shoes, but by making good shoes, because God is interested in good craftsmanship.” – Martin Luther
