Milo Quote of the Day

Posted July 17, 2017 By John C Wright

The unsinkable Milo Yiannopoulos, the only public figure bold enough and fabulous enough to proclaim unapologetically the Roman Catholic Church is right about everything (and she is) likewise speaks truth to peevish in his book, DANGEROUS.

Forexample:

Instead of asking themselves why they lost people’s trust, the media instead asked why the people had lost trust in them. A subtle, but important difference.

Awesome.

I will post a fawnish and slavishly flattering review once I am done reading it. In the meantime, please pray for his wounded soul to find a way to escape the snare of his pathetic sodomite lifestyle. We want him to wed some fabulous black woman and have a dozen Catholic children. Outbreeding the SJWs is one of our main tactics.

Dr. Who is Not

Posted July 17, 2017 By John C Wright

I read that the 13th Doctor is slated to be female.

http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-40624288

Well, I have had enough. In the last few years, Thor is a girl, Wolverine is a girl, Hawkeye is a girl, Vision is a girl, Hulk is a girl,Iron Man is a girl, The Question is a girl.

These are not merely female sidekicks or variations, as when Batgirl or Supergirl don a costume to help out. These are replacements for the male meant to erase the masculinity from the name brand.

I have been a fan of Dr Who since age seven, when Tom Baker was the Doctor. I have tolerated years of public service announcements in favor of sexual deviance that pepper the show. But this is too much to tolerate.

The BBC has finally done what The Master, the Daleks and the Cybermen have failed to do. They killed off the Doctor.

Dr. Who is dead to me.

Last Crusade: Unearned Laurels

Posted July 16, 2017 By John C Wright

In a previous column (here) we discussed how, if one were the Devil’s Advocate, one would dress up the Devil’s case to have the best chance of fooling the gullible.

The first argument advancing the Devil’s cause is to say he does not exist. This allows politics rather than religion to be the center of all debate about how to save mankind. It allows the Devil’s cause, which is fundamentally religious in psychology and motive, to dress itself up as a political movement. All opposition hence limits itself to political debates, hence all opposition heretofore has been ineffective.

In another previous column (here) we discussed the second deception advocated by the Devil’s Advocate. Since all questions of human salvation are now political, the only allowed method of solving problems is secular, that is, scientific.

The second lie promoted by the Devil’s Advocate is to declare any question of morals or theology to be a scientific one, and then to declare that the debate is over, and expert opinion has reached a consensus.

You see, the Devil wants to have a Church equal and opposite to the Catholic Church. He wants to have an Antipope who can call an end to debate by saying something like: “The matter is settled. Rome has spoken.”

This led to a discussion of the history of Junk Science and how it leads to dishonesty, anomie, decivilization, corruption, and ultimately to death (see here).

The history of Junk Science culminates in the modern day, where Bill Nye the Science Guy (actually, a mechanical engineer.

He knows less science than your average science fiction writer) proffers rap videos promoting sexual freakshow deviancy for which names have not been invented yet, and patently false claims about human biology. Forgive me if I fail to link to it.

The Demeanor of the Warmalarmer Witness

Posted July 13, 2017 By John C Wright

A reader asked me to justify my skepticism toward such well informed experts as NASA and NOAA and Scientific American magazine on the question of catastrophic manmade global warming, and, of course, the United Nations IPCC, whereby I dismiss their data and declare the matter to be a hoax.

Let us review a crucial bit of evidence first. This is the head of the Sierra Club, which is perhaps the foremost and most well respected conservationist group on the planet. If anyone can be expected to know the facts of the matter, it is he. This is not some surprise interview by a reporter popped through the mail slot, but prepared remarks and cross examination in Congressional subcommittee hearing.

Observe the demeanor of the witness: Read the remainder of this entry »

To the People of the State of New York

Posted July 12, 2017 By John C Wright

A reader who wishes to remain anonymous sends the following and asks me to publish it.

Your Father Is a Hamster and Your Mother Smells of Elderberries!

By Publius Jr.

Friends, Americans, Countrymen, lend me your ears! Caesar is an SJW! He is a cuck! He is a homophobe and an islamophobe! He is a virtue-signaling Churchian!

Recently much has been said on the topic of rhetoric and dialectic. A hundred years ago, any educated man would have known the definition of these terms. Unfortunately, our modern schools no longer properly educate, so to many, these terms are mysterious.

Let us speak plainly, shall we? When we say rhetoric vs. dialectic, we mean propaganda vs. reason.

Reason uses logic to explain the steps of an issue. A=B and B=C, therefore A=C.

Propaganda uses something other than reason: threats, persuasion, appeal to the passions, name calling, false logic (Argument by authority is the strongest type of argument, as many eminent people will attest.)

Now, I ask you:

Who uses reason?

Is it a man speaking with his equals?

Who uses reason?

People who have faith in the intelligence of their audience?

Who uses reason?

One who desires the truth?

And then I ask you again:

Who uses propaganda?

Politicians trying to fool the masses?

Who uses propaganda?

Businesses trying to hook a sucker?

Who uses propaganda?

Cowards trying to avoid the holes in their arguments?

And now I ask you again:

Who is persuaded by reason?

Is it an intelligent man, who listens carefully and draws a wise conclusion?

Who is persuaded by reason?

 Is it a wise man, who checks his facts?

Who is persuaded by reason?

Is it one equal listening to another?

Now, finally, I ask you one more time:

Who is persuaded by propaganda?

Think about that next time you poise your fingers above the keys to comment on the Internet.

Lost on the Last Continent, Episode 06, River of Fire

Posted July 12, 2017 By John C Wright

Lost on the Last Continent, Episode 06, River of Fire, is now posted on Patreon.

Episode 06 River of Fire

In this exciting episode, Colonel Lost is outflanked by foes and driven toward the encampment of the Eighth Men. He rashly wagers all on the instincts of a new-found simian friend, and rushes toward a volcano cone, a forest fire, and seemingly certain death. Is his faith foolhardy?

Jagi here!

Just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to all John’s patrons and those who have sent contributions—both large and small! Your help has made such a difference!

So in the last two years, while you guys have been helping us, we have:

1) First and foremost, not gone deeper into debt.

This is huge. We slid deeper into debt every year for years. We lived quite simply. We just didn’t have enough to cover our family expenses. In the last two years, thanks to contributions from you guys, we turned this around.

2) Paid off two credit cards.

Two cards are paid off! Thanks to you! One is closed. The other is being used only for monthly reoccurring debts and is being paid off every month. This is huge progress for us!
3) Reduced monthly bills!

With those paid off, we have turned our attention to cards with larger outstanding balances. These have been lowered enough that the monthly payment are now a bit lower, which is just wonderful! Still a long way to go, but its nice to see progress.

4) Paid various unexpected bills

Car repairs, medical bills, new glasses for those who need them, shoes that actually fit for the kids…good stuff.

5) Happy activities for the kids

The kids have some really nice activities this summer, and we were able to cover one of the collage classes our daughter will take next fall. (She paid for the other with money she made working. She also contributes by paying some family bills, bless her.)

Some of these activities were paid for by book money or by camperships, but some is due to your wonderful generosity!
Warmest thanks to you guys from the whole Wright household!

 

And hope you continue to enjoy our books and John’s Crusading!

Visions Among the Muslims

Posted July 10, 2017 By John C Wright

Again and again, from different sources, I keep hearing rumors and tales of conversions among the Muslims to Christ. What makes these stories stand out is the number of them who convert, as I did, based on a supernatural experience, a vision, a dream, a visit from the Virgin Mary or from Christ.

Here is one told to me privately:

I met an Assemblies of God missionary once who had just gotten back from his first term in the Middle East. I asked how long it took to get his first convert. He laughed and said, “In the city the first day, a man walked up to me and said, ‘Tell me of Jesus and how he can fix what Allah cannot.’ I was stunned and asked how he knew I was there to speak of Jesus. He replied, ‘In a dream, I saw a man with holes in his hands who said his name was Jesus and I was to look for you on this date.'”

Last Crusade: Thomism and Immigration

Posted July 9, 2017 By John C Wright

Prior columns have discussed the proper Christian teaching on the question of enemies, sojourners, trespassers, and refugees. All these are guests in our nation whose stay is not meant to be permanent.

Often confused with these are immigrants, that is, strangers who come not merely to save life and limb or escape oppression, but who come to join us, learn our language, adopt our ways and customs, and be baptized into Christian fellowship.

The starting point and the central pole star of any Christian discussion of these topics is found in St. Thomas’ Summa Theologiae: Read the remainder of this entry »

The Fist of Truth in the Mouth of Lies

The Violent Left has responded in typical fashion to Dana Loesch’s NRA ad, and Grant Stinchfield replies in due fashion.
