Well, the good people of La Vergne Tennessee are a wee bit red-faced these days after a scandal broke recently that has focused the eyes of the news-watching world upon their little corner of Tennessee heaven. Namely, a female cop engaging in illicit and somewhat unrestrained sexcapades with six of her male colleagues. Caligula would… Continue reading Hey! What cops do in the privacy of their squad car is nobody’s business!
Why the American Left hates today’s Russia
At the 80,000 foot level, in regards to Russia, I believe that what the secular West fears most is a resurgent Russia rooted in its traditions, history, and most especially Orthodox Christianity. The secular West hates the same trend that is happening in Eastern Europe generally, such as the revitalisation of the Catholic church in… Continue reading Why the American Left hates today’s Russia
The show must go on! Men.
You remember the old saying, "The show must go on!" Unless you are a student of the history of theatre or a trivia junkie you'll not likely know the origin of the expression, but you nonetheless understand it has something to do with theatre. You also understand its broader meaning. That is, in the face… Continue reading The show must go on! Men.
It takes a tribe
I heard a sermon recently where the preacher reminded his congregation that we live in a post-industrial world where the extended family has lost much of its practical relevance and necessity. That until recently and stretching back into the mist of time we humans lived in what may be thought of as extended families, tight… Continue reading It takes a tribe
It’s your culture, not your skin colour
Imagine the Smiths, a family somewhere in the South wherever football is loved, which is pretty much everywhere. These Smiths (they can be black or white) are a football family through and through, the women being every bit as enthusiastic about the sport as the men. From high school, to college, to the pros, this family follows… Continue reading It’s your culture, not your skin colour
Think twice before getting married today
We have a human nature, unchanging and unchangeable, and marriage is born of this human nature. Marriage is not a social construction. It is within the respective natures of man and woman to be drawn to each other to form a long-term, mutually supportive union, that is recognised by their tribe. This union is the… Continue reading Think twice before getting married today
The root cause of the proliferation of the crazies amongst us
It seems obvious that in the great majority of what we call mass shootings in America these days the shooters are mentally unstable men and usually young. They are men who are, for whatever reason, broken. Considering the nature of their sudden appearance, the immediate solution must be to harden (as we now say) the… Continue reading The root cause of the proliferation of the crazies amongst us
So what if Japan’s population shrinks?
What is it to live well? What is quality of life? Hard questions to answer for sure, though maybe a bit less so than, 'Where did we come from?' or 'Why are we here?' I think quality of life must include living securely amongst those you love, or at least those you understand and trust.… Continue reading So what if Japan’s population shrinks?
To the Editor of the PI in response to Ms Neese regarding the Sentinel
This letter is in reply to Sue Neese's letter of 11 October. In her letter to the editor she ask Henry Countians, again, to remove the Confederate Memorial (the Sentinel) on Court Square. We should do so because it memorialises and honours the institution of slavery and thus stands as its advocate. This according to… Continue reading To the Editor of the PI in response to Ms Neese regarding the Sentinel
A culture divided, a country to follow
As a native born Southerner of British origins I am culturally what I call a 500-Year-Protestant. I can say that my people have been Protestant since their-lord Henry VIII decided that he needed to get in front of the Protestant Reformation, crown himself head of the church in England, and divorce and remarry whomever he… Continue reading A culture divided, a country to follow
