‘Counsel for the Counselors’

Why can’t our counselors help the people that they’re counseling?

Maybe because they themselves need counseling, and aren’t getting it.

I wrote this piece for Chalcedon in 2004, and I doubt the situation has changed since then. Counselors “can’t say” whether a behavior is right or wrong. They literally can’t say: the cat’s got their tongue.

But until they can say it, they won’t do anyone much good.


Piling On!

I know someone–to spare her further inconvenience, she shall remain nameless–who found her own Facebook page burdened by a message from some leftid who announced, “I’m voting Blue [Democrat/communist] in November!” To which she replied, “Who cares?”–when any reply at all, other than instant agreement, would have been a mistake.

Next thing she knew, her page was flooded with libs, all taking exception to the two words she wrote. It went on all day. I could’ve told her that would happen, but anticipating nothing of the kind, she never asked.

“Conversation,” in lib-speak, consists of as many leftids as can be packed into the room all shouting at the one poor devil who dissented from their opinion and who must now be hammered into silence. They call this “diversity.”

Remember: They’re only 8% of the population! It’s unseemly for 8% to bully 92%. Okay, with a population of 300 million, 8% still gives the Left some two and a half million fat-heads to work with. And normal people, among the remaining 280 million, have a lot of things they’d rather do, and had better do, than troll liberals’ social media pages.

Hint: Defunding the colleges would be a big, big help!


The Exhausted Majority

Almost everybody in America, regardless of race or sex, age  or national origin, whatever, hates Political Correctness and thinks it’s a problem for America. Only the skimpy 8% who identify themselves as “progressives” like it. This is according to a recent survey by “More in Common” (https://reason.com/blog/2018/10/11/political-correctness-americans-vote-maj).

The 92% of us who are not Far Left Crazy constitute, in the words of the survey, “an exhausted majority.” That’s a pretty good label: we are exhausted. We can hardly bear to hear another word from the perpetually yammering “progressives: in the words of the survey, “a tiny minority of far-left Americans.” As citizens of the world, they probably find that word “Americans” insulting. Time for a tantrum.

So the question is, and the survey didn’t ask it, if only 8% of the people like Political Correctness, why are the rest of us served great fat heaping bowlfuls of it, day after day? At our schools and colleges and looniversities, TV and movie studios, why the devil is PC the only damned thing on the menu?

That’s a question that needs answering, folks.


‘Libs and “the Unjust Lottery of Life”‘ (2015)

Secular liberalism is a really weird religion. You start out with a Godless universe that began for no reason, is governed by pure chance, and, again by pure chance, has generated the genius minds of Far Left Crazy rulers and philosopher-kings… who will then impose a just and rational order on the whole shebang.

Do you believe there are lots and lots of folks who really do believe this crap? And they say Christians are credulous!

But don’t take my word for it: visit San Francisco.

Be sure to wear galoshes.


‘O Thou Who Camest From Above’

Charles Wesley wrote this hymn in 1762–O Thou Who Camest from Above, performed here by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band… the old-fashioned way.

How did the builders of so many English churches get their churches to look like they grew on the spot as living things? Too many of the new churches look like somebody just accidentally dropped them there.


My Newswithviews Column, Oct. 18 (‘UN Calls for “Unprecedented Societal Change”‘)

See the source image

It’s hard to think of any good that’s ever been accomplished by anyone who takes it upon himself to change the world. When you have whole buildings full of people like that, the results are bound to be disastrous.

https://newswithviews.com/un-calls-for-unprecedented-societal-change/

Enter the United Nations, which exists to protect and spread dictatorship and to siphon money out of the United States. They’ve got a few more changes in mind for a defenseless world.

There is only one Person who has a right to exercise world government, and that Person is Jesus Christ the King of kings.

Anybody else who claims it needs a pie in the face.


Piggy-Back, Anyone?

Oddly enough, there are no piggies in this video. And it looks like baby goats are the champions of hitching piggy-back rides.

By the way, I recommend not encouraging your kittens to jump onto your back for a ride. This becomes much less amusing when they’re full-sized cats. And, uh, when you’ve got company, or a repairman, they might find it even less amusing.


Sanity Break: ‘Christ Shall Have Dominion’

I have to flush the news from my mind before I get back to work on my book. This little hymn will do it: Christ Shall Have Dominion.

The first time I posted this hymn, someone objected to the whole idea of Jesus Christ having dominion. I don’t want to know whom he would have preferred to have it.

I pray for the establishment of Christ’s Kingdom in heaven and on earth.


‘Save Our Democracy’

In their search for a catchier campaign slogan than “Do as we say or we’ll beat you up,” Democrats have hit upon “Save our democracy.” That they’re the ones that America needs saving from has not occurred to them. Anyway, I’ve begun to see these signs cropping up around town.

Judging by their recent actions, and ignoring the fact that the Constitution guarantees each state of the union a republican form of government, not a “democracy,” how do Democrats propose to save it?

By mobs in black masks threatening and assaulting people, and destroying public and private property.

By attempting to censor everyone who isn’t them.

By pounding and clawing at the Supreme Court’s door.

By throwing around unsupported accusations like confetti.

By owning the nooze media and using it to attack our duly elected president every day and every night.

By screaming at their political rivals and driving them out of public places.

And so on.

Please look very closely at the Democrat Mob Rule Party’s vision for a new America, one where whoever stages the biggest riot controls public policy.

This can only be avoided if the American people vote overwhelmingly against all Democrats in next month’s elections.

If you’re as sick of the news of their daily hooliganisms as I am, cast your vote for a defeat that will put them out of business once and for all.


‘Depraved’ Starts Here

Lizzie Borden 1890.jpg

Lizzie Borden in 1890

In 1893 Lizzie Borden, spinster, of Fall River, Massachusetts, was tried for the ax murders of her father and stepmother. The little ditty survives to this day: Lizzie Borden took an ax, gave her father forty wacks/ When she saw what she had done, she gave her mother forty-one.

For the record, Ms. Borden was acquitted of the crimes. No one else was ever charged with the murders. By the time she died in 1927, her legend was firmly established.

Now, the house where the murders were committed is the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast and Museum. I am not going to link to their site because I felt rather soiled by contact with the whole idea. If you were wondering where bad taste ends and sheer depravity begins… it’s here.

You can sleep in the Murder Room, buy postcards showing genuine crime scene photos of the butchered victims, and even buy a Lizzie Borden bobble-head doll complete with cute little ax. Why anyone would want any of this is well beyond me. But this is a successful business, so it must have customers.

Uh, hello–anybody there? Two people were hacked to death in here. The last moments of their lives must have been unimaginably horrible. And if Lizzie, as the court found, didn’t kill them, imagine living the rest of your life with virtually everyone in America believing you did such a thing. And singing a song about it!

The human heart, wrote Jeremiah, is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? (Jer. 17:9)

This is why we need a Savior. Good thing we’ve got one.
