Is White Nationalism Racist? Is Racism a Defeater?

August 18, 2017 Catholic Hulk 3

Is American White Nationalism Racist? Suppose we understand the concept of American white nationalism as a political view with two central theses: Firstly, it is the belief that that the American nation was formed by whites with European heritage and ethnicity and that the American nation requires the political and cultural dominance of whites with European heritage/ethnicity; and secondly, because of the first thesis, whites should be politically and culturally dominant in America. This definition [Continue reading]

“Unite the Right” and Richard Spencer’s Alt-Right

August 14, 2017 Catholic Hulk 13

Richard Spencer and his crew had a “unite the right” protest or demonstration earlier (see here). I’m sure everyone knows about it. Spencer also posted his thoughts on what it means to be alt-right (see here).  I don’t know if Spencer’s thoughts about the alt-right movement are definitive, but I do know that “the right” cannot be united if it includes Spencer’s alt-right movement. I also know that I cannot unite with Spencer’s movement. Let [Continue reading]

A Hulkly Response to Bernstein’s Rejoinder

August 3, 2017 Catholic Hulk 0

So C’zar Bernstein replied to my criticism of his article on the death penalty. I thank him for that. You can see his rejoinder here. You can see my initial reply here and his initial piece here. This exchange can get confusing for readers, so I will try to be clear and concise in this response. That said, this is a rather long blogpost, so I apologize in advance. If I address this issue again, [Continue reading]

Bernstein on the Death Penalty

July 26, 2017 Catholic Hulk 1

We haven’t had a blogpost about the death penalty here at Rightly Considered, so I figured it was time. Plus, Ohio just killed a man just a few hours before I began writing this blogpost, so that is even more reason for me to write about the death penalty. Here I criticize C’zar Bernstein’s rejoinder to anti-death penalty arguments, finding some of his counter arguments rather weak. That’s not to say that I agree with [Continue reading]

Responding to Some Pro-Abort Feminist Bloggers

July 21, 2017 Catholic Hulk 3

It occurred to me that RC has not had a blogpost about abortion, which is weird, because anti-abortion philosophy has been a conservative thing for many years. So to remedy this, I did a casual search over the web, looking to see what pro-abort feminists have been saying about abortion. I’m not impressed with the quality of their posts. Check it out. Tracie Morrissey from Jezebel writes: But who the fuck are you to actively [Continue reading]

The Metaphysics of Vagina

July 11, 2017 Catholic Hulk 6

Earlier I wrote about political vaginas (see here), a topic inspired by the case of Dawson v. Vancouver Police Board within British Columbia, Canada. This legal case recognized the product of a “vaginoplasty” as a vagina, which is kind of an eyebrow-raiser, because that constitutes some legal recognition for it as a vagina. As readers familiar with my writings might suspect, I took issue to that characterization, proclaiming that the alleged vagina is not a [Continue reading]

Inconsistent Thinking: Transgenderism and Birth Certificates

July 1, 2017 Catholic Hulk 3

Have you ever face palmed yourself so hard that it hurt? If not, check out this (link). I can’t tell if progressivists are really just trying to troll us. For those of you too lazy to click and read it, here’s the story – listen up. A birth certificate was issued in British Columbia, Canada, without a sex marker. Here’s the logic for why this was done: ““The assignment of sex in this culture is [Continue reading]

Nature: From Order to Mechanism and then Feminism and Other BS

June 19, 2017 Catholic Hulk 18

It seems clear to me that the modern day sickness afflicting the West today, with its moral scepticism, feminism and liberalism, stems from the abandonment of the pre-modern Christian worldview, particularly its emphasis on nature and the natural order. Let me explain. Nature and the natural order was once seen as immanently ordered, purposed-driven, reasoned, moral, and hierarchical. God was the ruler of all things and all things were, ultimately, dependent upon Him and existing [Continue reading]

Looking for Heretics: Bernie Sanders and Religious Liberalism

June 11, 2017 Catholic Hulk 25

A few day ago, Senator Bernie Sanders questioned Russell Vought’s beliefs regarding salvation. Here’s Vought’s questioned belief: Muslims do not simply have a deficient theology. They do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ his Son, and they stand condemned. Sanders didn’t like this belief. Here’s a bunch of stuff Sanders said to Vought and others as reported by Emma Green (see here):   “In my view, the statement made by Mr. Vought [Continue reading]

On Disability: Should We Be Ableists?

May 22, 2017 Catholic Hulk 35

Remember when some members of the Society of Christian Philosophers lost their minds regarding Richard Swinburne’s claim that homosexuality is a disability (see here)? Part of their outrage emanated in response to the idea that disability is a bad thing, something to avoid, remedy, or cure. Apparently, that’s “ableism,” something we are called to see as bad or oppressive. But I don’t think so. As I see it, human beings are creations with a nature: There [Continue reading]
