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]

There is a a relatively new resource available to philosophers looking to publish work, which readers might find useful. This website gives information on 182 different philosophy journals’ average time of review, the percentage of papers accepted for publication, the quality of the review, the overall experience with the journal, and the average time to publication.
Federal Philosopher reported on this earlier, unlike the usual suspects. Social Injustice appears to score a minor victory.
Philosophical Studies published this specimen on the rate of women publishing in philosophy journals. Of particular note is not why in the hell Phil Studies published some half-baked social science paper, but that women were slightly overrepresented in journals that had non-anonymous reviews but underrepresented in those which had anonymous reviews. For analysis and to see how the authors spun the data (which no doubt will gain some traction) see this helpful commentary. Here is a [Continue reading]
This is the first in our “Basket of Deplorable Links” posts. We plan to make it a regular feature. Philippe Lemoine’s analysis of the Trump/Russia witch hunt and the recent New York Times’s fake news story. Germany cracks down on free speech. “On Friday morning Maas introduced a draft law to the Bundestag which requires social media networks to remove any references to the mass nonwhite invasion of Germany, and which forbids the spreading of any [Continue reading]
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)?

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]
This just in. I have not been following the story closely, so I will reserve the right to comment about the details later. I see that the Daily Noise is (of course) taking pains to defend Curry. One thing that we do know is that, if Curry were white, he would have been forced out long, long ago. Such is the state of Amerika. Do readers have any insight into this?
Changes are coming to Rightly Considered. I wanted to take a moment to announce that, as some of our regular contributors finish up semesters. We started this website with hopes that it might gain some following, but not really knowing what to expect. We didn’t know whether anyone outside of ourselves would care. What we learned in the following months was that people do care—we’ve had a number of other major blogs link to us, we’ve gotten [Continue reading]
