‘Humanist Doomsday Myth Scares Children’ (2009)

See the source image

See? They’ve been doing it for years–scaring children (and adults) with their global warming gloom and doom. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t invent it.

In 2009 a poll found “one in three children” aged six to eleven “fear the demise of the planet.” I interviewed the head honcho of “Habitat Heroes,” who tried very hard to distance himself from the scare merchants. Judge for yourselves whether he succeeded.

What we have with the Climate Change scam is a humanist, no-God-involved, End Times scenario. And if there’s any God in it at all, it’s a weak, pitiful God who can only wring His hands as we destroy His creation by driving cars, having air conditioners, and using toilet paper.

It’s ten years later and they’re still at it. Shame on us for allowing them to scare us with it.


Europe: Mock Muhammad, Go to Jail

I’d be very disappointed in myself if the best Glorious Cause I could come up with was the “right” to blasphemy. But in Europe an Austrian woman has been found guilty of the new criminal offense of mocking Muhammad (details in video, above).

Europeans, though, still have the “right” to mock Christians and Christianity with impunity. Does this strike you as, like, a double standard?

I’d also be very disappointed in myself if the best thing I could think of doing with my freedom was to mock someone else’s religion. True, I frequently mock the Far Left’s pseudo-religion of secular humanism. Just can’t seem to resist it.

The fact that I’m a Christian really sort of indicates that I don’t believe in Islam and don’t accept its teachings as true. I couldn’t be a Christian, otherwise. But I don’t see how that gives me any warrant to insult Muslims, Hindus, or any others who sincerely believe in their respective religions and try to live in peace. I can pray for their conversion. I can try to answer their questions, respectfully and honestly, when they have questions for me. I can try to live in such a way that it won’t inspire them to despise Christianity because they despise me. I don’t always do all of these things well, but I can try.

Besides which, Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and His apostles, set an example which I am obliged to follow as best as I can. Did Peter or Paul ever mock Greeks and Romans for being pagans? Not in any Bible I’ve ever read.

Yes, I know Elijah mocked the priests and so-called prophets of Baal. But who of us has Elijah’s authority?

When the Lord commanded us to do unto others as we would have them do unto us, He didn’t add, “But only if they’re Christians.”


My ‘Bell Mountain’ Interview

It was eight years ago, but I think this is still the best interview I’ve had–largely due to the thoughtful questions asked by Chalcedon’s Andrea Schwartz. Here’s the audio for the whole thing, about 23 minutes long. I apologize, in advance, for my slow way of talking. As for my voice, it’s ideally suited for mime.

https://chalcedon.edu/resources/audio/lee-duigon-bell-mountain-notable-people

At the time, I had three Bell Mountain books in print, with No. 4, The Last Banquet, ready to go to press. Here in 2018, I’m waiting for No. 11, The Temptation, to come out, and writing No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever. 

How many more to come?

As many as God gives me to write.


Another Antifa Interview

No, it’s not a student. It’s a professor. A law professor at John Jay School of Justice. A law professor who identifies himself as an anarchist and belongs to an “antifa” group–violent leftid thugs who think everyone’s a “nazi” except themselves.

So here’s Tucker Carlson interviewing another Antifa waste of space. But this is several months after his last Antifa interview, in which the interviewee baldly confessed her commitment to violence against anyone Antifa disagrees with. Is it possible that the differences in these two interviews are owing to the public getting just a teeny bit fed up with Antifa?

Notice how the prof bobs and weaves to avoid answering direct questions. Everything Antifa does, he claims, is “self-defense.” Including the riot footage Carlson plays for him. Nope, nothin’ wrong there.

Oh! And Antifa doesn’t have to obey the law because the law, don’t you know, is a tool to oppress “the vast majority of the people.” Just like Christians, Republicans, conservatives, white people in general, yatta-yatta, are out “to eliminate most of the people in this country”–hmmm… that’d be, like, 180 million people or so?–who need Antifa rioters to protect them. Therefore, he concludes, “the violence is justified.” Because it isn’t really violence at all, it’s just self-defense against “fascists” and “white supremacists”–categories which, for Antifa, have exceedingly broad definitions. Just about anybody, in fact.

Please, everyone–think real, real hard the next time you vote. Please don’t let Democrats ever take power again. Because they own Antifa, and Antifa owns them.


How Wacko Dems Will Reach Out to America

See how much of this you can take.

So the Democrat “strategist” comes on Tucker Carlson’s show to proclaim, “Democrats are going to run on American values.” Oh, please. Usually they run over American values.

But what “American values” is he talking about? Open borders? Transgenderism? Race war? No. He’s talking about “jobs.” And he says more immigration is going to create more jobs in America. He is not able to explain how importing millions more poor people will do that. He also seems to be suggesting that it’s not just poor people, but “engineers and scientists” who are sneaking over the border illegally.

Dude! I challenge you or any other Democrat to name a single mainstream American value that you and your friends do not despise. You may give lip service, for example, to Christianity–but we see you promoting abortion, sodomy, disregard for law, class warfare, etc. You’re right out there in the open, wrecking our culture and writing us off as deplorables. We know who you are and what you want. That’s why Donald Trump is president.

I just can’t wait to see how these weirdos reach out to America.


Socialism: They Don’t Know What It Is, But They Like It

I just had a horrible thought: you could probably crank a hit song out of that, I Don’t Know What It Is, But I Like It.

Here are a bunch of collidge stodents being asked about socialism. They’re all in favor of it, big-time. They also don’t know what it is, and are totally stumped when asked to define or describe it. “If it’s helping people, I’m for it.” Brilliant. Your tuition dollars at work.

Salutes to Campus Reform.org for producing this video.

College, college, college… hmmm… Hey! I think I know what happened to that Indus Valley civilization! College happened to it.


Yeah, They’re Crazy

I think if I were offered Tucker Carlson’s job, I’d be convinced I was having a bad dream. Or maybe a nervous breakdown.

In this outing, Tucker interviews a smirking paramecium named Dakotah Something, who thinks socialism really, really works and America should try to be like Venezuela. ‘Cause all the probs down there, he says between smirks, are caused by bad people trying to ruin the government’s plans to create a workers’ paradise. Damn, it’s a tough row to hoe, for those “dedicated Chavistas.”

Workers, eh? Socialism is full of airheads who never did a day’s work in their lives. What would they know about work?

Watch this kid’s face and listen to his words. This is a product of our education system. This is what we’re getting for our money.

This is our national folly come to life.

And what we’re supposed to do with the hundreds of thousands like him that our colleges are turning out, beats me.


The Narnia Children, Grown Up

Here are the four child stars from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, the BBC version from the 1980s. The interview is about 12 minutes long; if you’re a Narnia freak like I am, you’ll enjoy it.

I’ve seen Edmund in a Poirot episode, and Peter in a Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes movie–the disappointingly bad one about the vampire.


Here’s the Webinar! ‘Thoughts on Being a Writer’

Wow, here it is already–the “webinar” I did just the other day, organized, moderated, and edited by Andrea Schwartz, my esteemed colleague at The Chalcedon Foundation. She is amazingly efficient.

So here it is, if you can stand listening to my voice for 55 minutes (I’m not sure I can). (  https://thekingdomdrivenfamily.com/2016/10/26/thoughts-on-being-a-writer-webinar-discussion-with-lee-duigon/ )

It was a lot of fun being questioned by people who had actually read my books: in fact, it was the first time that’s happened. I hope the advice I gave these kids and teens was good advice.

I’m Back

Image result for very tired dog

I’m back–and I’m bushed.

I got all pumped up, doing that webinar, answering all sorts of questions about writing in general and my books in particular, yak-yak-yak a mile a minute (hopefully to good effect) until I just about plotzed. And then I had to sit down and write my weekly News With Views column… and suddenly it’s almost 4 p.m.

And I still have to squeeze in a bike ride before supper.

You’ll pardon me, I hope, if I don’t get around to blogging about politics today. But I should be good for a critter video or two, a little later on.

Meanwhile, the sun’s coming out–so off I go.
