Mike, Who Speaketh His Mind

The Racism I Can Live With

Liberal pundits inform us on multiple cable channels that racism has deep roots in America’s bones. If the constant numbing barrage of accusations of racism hasn’t made you stop caring whether you’re racist, you’re wondering whether you’re racist. So what does it say about me that I have only one black friend whom I’ve known since sixth grade?

Why Reparations for Slavery Are Immoral

Was slavery horrible? Yes. Was it immoral? Yes. But the one thing it was not is *unlawful*, and to put today’s American taxpayers under the onus of a crime for what was *legal behavior at the time* goes against not only an important principle clearly embedded in our Constitution but also our understanding of what living in a truly free society means.

The Cultural Bill of Rights

We are only ever *one* Supreme Court Justice away from America’s losing what it means to be America. I am proposing ten Constitutional Amendments that will guarantee America’s culture keeps faith with the original social and political culture of the Founding Fathers.

Dirty Old Consenting Adults?

“A 37-year-old sexualizing a 17-year-old? That’s GROSS!” But the average age of consent across all 50 states is 16-1/2. As a matter of law, the average American believes it’s perfectly okay for 17YOs to have sex with whomever they want. Why criticize the 37YO for *wanting* what you won’t outlaw him *doing*?

Why Matthew’s Resurrection Account is Garbage

There’s a meme called “When You See It”. You’re given a photo that looks pretty mundane, but once you’ve spotted a particular detail, the picture shifts from mundane to hilarious (or maybe horrifying). You can never go back to seeing the picture the way you first did. In the same way, my feeling is that once you’ve seen the gaping flaws in the Gospel of Matthew’s resurrection account, you’ll never go back to thinking it’s anything but garbage.

Lawrence v. God

In 2003, more than a decade before it legalized gay marriage, the Supreme Court declared all anti-sodomy laws unconstitutional. The United States could no longer punish a same-sex couple for engaging in homosexual acts. And that, combined with Roe v. Wade, is when America ceased to be a Christian nation.

Chris Pratt and Profaning the Sacred

Why do we keep the sacred separate from the profane? So we don’t dirty up the clean things. The clean things won’t make the dirty things any cleaner, but the dirty things sure can mess up the clean things. So we keep them separate. If we don’t, we’re left with nothing but dirty things. And this holds just as true for concepts as it does for objects.

The Naaman Excuse

You have a choice whether to participate in the public sin of others. If you join it, you show others that you approve of that sin, and you encourage them to do the same. Which is why Christians must refrain to the best of their ability from participating in gay weddings.
