Whatever Happened to Christian Crusader Mentality?

September 24, 2017 Catholic Hulk 2

The first papal proposal for a crusade was in 1074 by Pope Gregory VII. Gregory was responding to the conquests of Antioch and Nicaea, the reports of Christians “slaughtered like cattle” and reports of Constantinople threatened. You can read some of what he said here. For a number of reasons, his proposal did not substantiate into much. That’s too bad, if you ask me. Near the end of the eleventh century, Alexios and the Byzantines from the Christian [Continue reading]

Brooke Baldwin, CNN and Boobies: Who Really Demeans Women?

September 19, 2017 Catholic Hulk 13

Clay Travis said that he liked boobs during a live TV segment on CNN. Anchorwoman Brooke Baldwin then cut off his mic, choosing to end the interview. Baldwin later issued a statement expressing shock and disbelief that a man could say that in 2017 and that it was demeaning to women. Sure, the remark was juvenile and inappropriate in that conversation, but it didn’t demean women. That is, he didn’t reduce women to their breasts [Continue reading]

The Nashville Statement: A Rant About the Religion of Progressivism and the Failure of Protestantism

September 6, 2017 Catholic Hulk 12

I’m ranting. Deal with it. Several days ago Internet Progressivists and Sola-Feel Christians lost their minds in response to the Nashville Statement.  Apparently this is the first time they’ve been made aware of what Christian teaching has pretty much always said about the homo stuff. Needless to say, they had plenty of tears and outrage while actual Christians stared incredulously. But what concerns me here are two things: The religion of progressivism and the failure of Protestantism. [Continue reading]

On Alan Keyes: Is Homosexual “Sex” Really Sex?

August 26, 2017 Catholic Hulk 5

I recently discovered Alan Keyes, the man who Republicans should have chosen to beat Obama instead of McCain and that lady who can see Russia from her house. Keyes is pretty awesome: He is a solid conservative, clear spoken, intelligent, and a man of God. And it gets even better – he’s Catholic. I’m left smitten by this man, though in a totally non-gay way, of course. Anyways, that brings me to my topic: Is [Continue reading]

Is White Nationalism Racist? Is Racism a Defeater?

August 18, 2017 Catholic Hulk 18

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]
