The Brave Old Theology: Do Him Good

August 23, 2013


Posts at SSM’s recently elicited very wordy replies (from me), so lengthy in fact that I opted to convert them to my own post, more than one in fact, rather than burden her with such meandering free-association mini-rants. So, it goes “the Word was with God” – the words are NOT God. Now before you […]

Nothing to Lose : A Requiem for The Patriarchy

August 9, 2013


It’s old news now, the verdict is in, George Zimmerman is far from free but he’s not in jail in Florida anymore. Now descend the poverty pimps and race baiters, our own Preezie among them, hoping to gin up a secondary wave of fury that induces a reaction from the Justice Department to pursue charges […]

She’s no lady, she’s my wife!

July 19, 2013


So, because we can’t seem to stop talking about ladies and their buheviar, good, bad and otherwise, I thought it would be helpful on a Friday night to reiterate my favorite phrase and philosophy when it comes to the way of a man with a maid: A man likes what he likes. (very emphatic period) […]

June 12, 2013


One of the best things about home schooling, if not the very best thing, is the ease and opportunity for a child to develop the habit of recognizing relationships. Children are naturally adept at pattern – their early life is entirely made up of A + B = C. You cry you get comforted. You […]

Duty Sex: It does a body good

June 10, 2013


I managed to hurt myself a few weeks back. Nothing life threatening, fortunately, but alarming nonetheless, as the whole thing came on innocuously as a simple headache, and then proceeded to balloon into a full fledged medical scramble to magnetically image every inch of my body at least twice and drain me of what must […]

Passion is a virtue, Romance is a vice

June 7, 2013


We Christians find ourselves faced with the imminent reframing of marriage as an open ended cooperative arrangement, based on what amounts to feelings and a fancy party, rather than practical and eternal vows made to God and community. Man and woman are no longer joined in an exclusive bond. Anyone can play the game so […]
