Only Way to Stop Mass Murders at School

The One and Only Way to Stop Mass Murders at School

All this past week most of the mainstream press has been pushing the idea that what is needed to stop today’s school shootings and other mass murders is to inaugurate effective, total gun control—which is to say, to confiscate all firearms from the American public. The idea is “no guns equals no murders.” President Trump, however, has called for arming teachers at schools, and to more tightly control the vetting process for buying guns. He would eliminate some types of firearms that facilitate a mass murder spree, and do a better job with handling the mentally ill. Will any of this work to really change the situation on the ground? Frankly, at this stage of the game, I have my doubts, because all those suggestions don’t get at the heart of the problem… Read more

Messiah and Jerusalem — Stumbling blocks

Why the Messiah and Jerusalem are Stumbling Blocks to the World’s Leaders

donald-trump-jerusalem-933x445O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how is it that after so many thousands of years you can still command the attention of a Postmodernist, unbelieving global elite in the 21st Century? Could it be because the Biblical narrative that prophesies of something beyond the present world order scares the heck out of them? Read more…

500 Years of “Reformation”

Comments Off on 500 Years of “Reformation”, Filed in Blog, by CGP.

What is the most painful, unintended consequence of  Martin Luther’s rebellion against Rome?

Tomorrow, Halloween, is the ironic date the world typically marks as the anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation that shattered the Roman Universalist Church’s 1,000-year-long spiritual monopoly over Western Christianity. The man who launched that spiritual revolution was the fascinating, but not always loveable Martin Luther. Luther was courageous, intellectually energetic, and sometimes even humorous. But he was also pig-headed, argumentative, egotistical, and an infamous anti-Semite.

No Right to Save Your Own Child? Drug Overdose…

Comments Off on No Right to Save Your Own Child? Drug Overdose…, Filed in Blog, by CGP.

A distraught British Columbia father was pleading for the right and the power to force his drug addicted 15-year-old daughter into drug rehab so she doesn’t overdose another time and die. But the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, and it would seem the B.C. government, prefer less obtrusive ways, such as controlling the supply of addictive drugs and then handing them out to the addicts on a prescription basis.

The policy director of this civil liberties NGO, Michael Vonn said, “We are concerned about the notion that parents should be making health-care decisions for their mature minors.” He then suggested that forcing a minor into drug rehab is as much a non-starter as denying a “mature minor” (who they say might be just 12 years old) the right to access birth control without parental consent.

Who is Undermining Western Civilization?

Comments Off on Who is Undermining Western Civilization?, Filed in Blog, by CGP.

destroying western civilization

Surprising, Conrad Black noted, even the most militant of atheists feel obliged to swaddle themselves in commendable precepts that are generally rip-offs of the Golden Rule about loving your neighbour as yourself—which is found in both Old and New Covenant scriptures!

It is ironic that while the unbelieving, hyperactive philistines vociferously denounce the Judeo-Christian values, they nonetheless seem perfectly content to enjoy the benefits of Judeo-Christian civilization even while hypocritically denying its basic tenets.

Morality Pills? The Next PC Idea to Improve Society

Comments Off on Morality Pills? The Next PC Idea to Improve Society, Filed in Blog, by CGP.

A CBC radio program called The Current, recently lent itself as a megaphone to the provocative idea that a pill is the next best thing to improve the “human animal.”— That’s the label Neil Levy, deputy director of psycho-babble at the Oxford Centre for Neuroethics, in the U.K. applies to you and me. He wants to formulate and administer a “morality pill” to targeted segments of the population.

Material Progress without Moral Development

Comments Off on Material Progress without Moral Development, Filed in Blog, Jeff Patton, by CGP.

spinach1Can the network of cellulose veins in a spinach leaf, when stripped of its plant cells and replaced with human heart tissue, someday be used to repair the damage caused by heart-attacks? Or can the cellulose structure of broccoli or cauliflower, when stripped of their plant cells, be used as growing platforms for replacement lungs? Though it sounds like pure science fiction, bioengineers at the Massachusett’s Worchester Polytechnic Institute and at other research centres are working feverishly to make such ideas a reality.
