‘A Brief Defense of C.S. Lewis and Narnia’ (2015)

Puddleglum–theologian in training?

To boil it down all the way–C.S. Lewis was an atheist and could very easily have remained one all his life: so whatever quibbles we might have with his theology, however late he came to work in the Lord’s vineyard, he did the best he could.

If God requires of us more than that, we’re all in deep, deep trouble.


‘My Faith Looks Up to Thee’

This is another one of those hymns that my grandma, my mother, and my aunts used to hum while going about their housework–My Faith Looks Up to Thee, here sung by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. Background settings by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.


Cat & Guinea Pig: Buddies (Sort Of)

Why is the guinea pig not afraid of the cat? Why does the cat not try to eat the guinea pig? How is it that they can play together? Please disregard the other guinea pig, who is concentrating on doing nothing.

Thing is, can it be that animals are better than we are at transcending their natures? At learning to be better than they’re expected to be? Watch and wonder.


Laugh Break: ‘I’m My Own Grandpa’

Trying to figure out all this gender-poop gives me a hot head. But this song gives me a hot head that spins!

I’m My Own Granda–unravel it if you can.


UK Cops: For Shame!

Guarding Britain against misgendering!

“I want to be a police officer when I grow up, so I can lock people up for misgendering…”

British police are “investigating” a Catholic journalist for the ridiculous pseudo-crime of “misgendering” a 25-year-old man who says he’s now a woman (https://www.dailysignal.com/2019/03/19/police-question-uk-journalist-for-misgendering-a-transgender-woman/). They’ll arrest her, they say, unless she shows up at the cop shop for “a taped interview.”

Meanwhile, now that the news has come out, her whole family has been threatened and harassed by jidrools who’ve drunk the “transgender” Kool-Aid.

In its campaign to wipe out free speech, and truth, the UK now has a “Malicious Communications Act” which forbids you to say anything but nice things about anyone but Christians. You can get two years in prison for referring to a man as a man if he’s saying he’s a woman.

And I’m my own grandpa.

Hey, how come we never see cases like this on British cop shows? Busting those enemies of the people who call a man a man. Why are they so focused on solving murders?

Uh, because if you made a case like this the subject of a drama, the audience would mistake it for a comedy?

But it isn’t so funny for this Catholic journalist who’s now being harassed, vilified, and persecuted because she wouldn’t play along with the transgender delusion. This woman is being treated as a criminal because she wouldn’t say something that isn’t true.

Shame on Britain. Shame on the British cops for slavishly enforcing this absurd “law” that is an affront to sanity.

And if we don’t watch out, Democrats will be passing such laws for us. They can’t wait to do the same.


“No Weapon Formed Against Thee Shall Prosper”

Esther and the Persian king

One of the hardest lessons for us to learn, in such an evil and confusing age as this, is how to walk by faith and not by sight: because if we walk only by sight, most of what we see is bad. Mark Rushdoony discussed this in his blog post yesterday.

https://chalcedon.edu/blog/no-weapon-that-is-formed-against-thee-shall-prosper

The Book of Esther, in which the name of God does not appear, shows how God governs history, intervening at need. Our God created us with free will and respects it, even when our will is bent to evil: but he will not let evil prosper in the long run. As Isaiah said, “No weapon formed against thee shall prosper” (Is. 54:17).

How many times would God’s people have been wiped off the face of the earth, had He not intervened? As history, the Bible offers many examples of this truth.

And we do well to learn them.


Coming Soon: Robot Authors?

“AI [‘Artificial Intelligence,’ a mythical thing] can now write fiction and journalism,” announced The Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/mar/25/the-rise-of-robot-authors-is-the-writing-on-the-wall-for-human-novelists). Big deal. Robots replacing zombies.

But actually The Guardian article is quite critical. What the computers doing this work are, says the report, are “giant automated plagiarism machines” which regurgitate themes and expressions boiled down from thousands of articles and stories written by humans. It should be called Artificial Stupidity. You can see that when it’s given the opening line of a classic novel by, for example, George Orwell or Jane Austen, and then goes on to tack onto it a lot of half-baked twaddle. I wonder how they’d continue A Tale of Two Cities after Charles Dickens’ immortal opening words, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” Click the link above to see just how badly they fail. Violet Crepuscular could do better.

But journalism! Now we’re getting somewhere. They’re already robots–why pay them, when you can replace them? Whatever the news item they’re writing about, all they have to do is attack Donald Trump, say it’s all his fault, and throw in a few words about racism and gender identity. And presto, you’ve got journalism.

Robots can’t write classic novels, but they can do modern journalism.


Plan B: Impeach!

Democrats are fit to be tied, the witch-hunt having come up empty, the Mueller probe having utterly failed to find any evidence at all of “collusion” between Donald Trump’s campaign and “the Russians.” Wailing and gnashing of teeth.

But the Washington D.C. brain trust never runs out of ideas, and there’s already a new one sweeping up and down the aisles of Congress.

“We need a special prosecutor to investigate Trump’s non-collusion with the Russians!” This is a Democrat operative speaking, and our source is unimpeachable. “If he did not collude with the Russians, we can impeach him for that!”

Rep. Pookie Cholera (D-Mordor), vice-chair of the House Committee on Impeaching the &%$#&@ [lengthy list of expletives deleted], described the Mueller report as “a two-year cover-up, they planned to cheat us all along! We should have stuck to our motto: First punish, then investigate!”

“We’ve got him now!” exulted Sen. Albert Ringworm (D-Alternative Universe). “If he colluded with the Russians, that’s a crime. If he didn’t collude with the Russians, that’s a crime, too! One way or another, we’ve got him!”

Who here thinks I’m joking?


‘Feed the Kiddies Like Mrs. O Says, or Else’ (2016)

Bon appetite!

Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, when the president’s freakin’ wife, whom no one voted for, who is accountable to no one, got to decide what millions and millions of kids in public schools could have or not have for lunch.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/03/29/feed-the-kiddies-like-mrs-o-says-or-else/

Want those days to come again?

Next election, just refrain from voting Republican.

By and by, they won’t be satisfied with controlling what your kids can eat. They’ll tell you what to eat!


‘Be Thou My Vision’ (Nathan Pacheco)

I liked this rendition of the hymn so much, I played it twice–Be Thou My Vision, sung by Nathan Pacheco. When this hymn was first sung, Charlemagne was a little boy. An ancient Irish hymn, from the eighth century. Still very much loved today.
