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]

Marijuana Legalization and the State

April 27, 2017 Catholic Hulk 16

You might have heard that Canada is on her way to legalize marijuana possession, use and growth. I’m confused about the morality of the whole thing, but my attention was sparked by this journalist. Read: But government exists to protect us from force and fraud and I subject him to neither when I drink a beer or smoke a joint even if, by doing so, I diminish his potential pleasure or profit from my company.

GLAAD and the “Homosexual Agenda”

April 3, 2017 Catholic Hulk 7

GLAAD, the forerunner of lgbt advocacy, recently published a document entitled Accelerating Acceptance. The document celebrates the recent judicial victories for the lgbt Sexual Revolution, but laments the work ahead. What work? Here’s a passage from the document: Yet, GLAAD’s survey also reveals that slow but steady progress is being made for acceptance of LGBT people. In many of the ‘comfortability’ questions central to GLAAD’s Accelerating Acceptance survey, non-LGBT Americans report significantly less discomfort than [Continue reading]

Unnatural Allies: The Left, Gays and Muslims

February 23, 2017 Catholic Hulk 27

The political left, the forerunners and champions of the LBGT movement, further the political clout of Muslims, but Muslims, by far and large, are opposed to LBGT rights, recognition and political advancement; hence, the furtherance of the political clout for Muslims comes with at least some detriment to the LBGT movement. So why does the left support Muslims? It seems so self-defeating. I mean, readers, consider these facts. In the Muslim-majority countries of Afghanistan, Brunei, Iran, [Continue reading]
