  • I'm in an Open Marriage . . . but We're Not Sleeping With Anyone Else

    I'm in an open marriage. Well, to be simultaneously more and less specific: I'm in a nonmonogamous marriage. An "open" marriage, in the nontraditional world, means that the couple may be having sex with other people but with no emotion involved. In contrast, in a "polyamorous" relationship, it means the couple is having sex with others and may also be having full-fledged relationships with others.

    March 16, 2018 (Rorate Caeli) – It is always local situations that show how deep the problems in the Church are at the present time. The problematic issuances from Rome, Germany and Chicago are indeed disturbing, but to see how far things have gone, one must go to the local level of the Church: the diocese and the parish. Go to a typical parish Mass to see the fruit of the liturgical experiment of the post-Conciliar Church. The unmooring from the Tradition of the Church is plain to see in the carrying out of the deliberate misunderstanding of the Mass...

    YouTube Shows Dennis Prager's Claim Of Discrimination Against Conservatives Is Laughable You will recall that Dennis Prager, the conservative commentator who also runs a YouTube channel to inform his viewers of his perspective on a variety of topics, recently sued YouTube. The meat of Prager's claims is that YouTube is censoring some of his videos purely because he is a conservative -- with the clear implication being that YouTube is a liberal bastion of conservative-hating video hosting. Just to be clear, there is no real evidence for that. What there is evidence for is that YouTube is trying very hard...

    A conservative advocacy group is not down with dating website OkCupid’s new “DTF” ad campaign. The group, CitizenGo, has launched a petition calling for officials in Portland, Oregon, to remove the ad campaign which it claims “promotes lesbian sex, prostitution, drug use, and promiscuity, and it will be viewed by millions, including children, in public places.” “The most recent and most offensive ads are popping up in Portland, Oregon,” the group says on the petition. “You can find several different ads posted on or around the TriMet [public transit agency], their metro system, which includes bus lines, light rail, and...

    Jenye “Viki” Knox served Union High School since 2000 as a teacher and faculty adviser for the students’ Bible study group. She began teaching handicapped students 28 years ago. An ordained minister, Knox communicated her opinion openly on social media. In 2013, Knox sued the district for violating her right to free speech and her right to the free expression of her religion. She wanted her job back with back pay and the admission that she was within her rights under the Constitution to express her views on Facebook. The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey admitted that though...

    UK appoints loneliness minister to combat ‘sad reality of modern life’ By Tamar Lapin January 17, 2018 | 1:19pm For a “United” Kingdom — they’re pretty lonely. A minister for loneliness was appointed in Britain Wednesday to tackle Brits’ growing social isolation, Downing Street announced. “Both proud and humbled to be appointed #loneliness minister,” Tracey Crouch tweeted. Crouch, a 42-year-old minister for sport and civil society said she was up for the task of heading a government-wide group responsible for policies connected to loneliness, The Guardian reported. When announcing the appointment, Prime Minister Theresa May cited research stating that 9...

    Note: This is not my blog. The Science Fiction Writer's Association has been purging itself of conservative and libertarian authors for years after the Sad Puppies movement tried to challenge the use of "social justice" messaging as a factor in deciding Hugo nominees. Now they've doubled down by: * banning Hispanic science fiction author Jon Del Arroz from Worldcon * the head of SFWA publicly criticizing Moira Greyland, daughter of Marion Zimmer Bradley and Walter Breen, after her book on her sexual abuse and the sex crimes of both her parents came out * the active purging of conservatives from...

    The rightish television presenter Tucker Carlson today offered his Twitter followers one of the best "tweetstorms" I've ever seen: #100RacistThings. You can see the thread here, but it's so good I'm going to preserve it for posterity in this post - because this is the sort of thing that gets people banned from Twitter these days. 1. Tamarisk trees in Palm Springs, California. 2. The ice cream truck song. 3. Credit scores. 4. Car insurance. 5. Crime statistics. 6. Halloween costumes. 7. Calling Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas." 8. Most of the better Disney movies. 9. Dr. Seuss. 10. White flight. 11....

    At 1 p.m. today, Thursday, Nov. 16, classic rock station KSWD "The Sound" 100.3 FM went off the air with side two of The Beatles' Abbey Road. The move came as a result of a deal The Sound's parent company, Entercom, struck with the FCC to divest three of its stations in exchange for regulatory approval of its $1.7 billion merger with CBS Radio, which also owns several stations in the L.A. market, including KROQ. The 100.3 FM frequency was sold to Educational Media Foundation for an undisclosed amount. EMF, based in Rocklin, owns 770 FM stations and translators and...

    Who wins this war? Trump and Moore? Yes, culture in America is sickening. Trump's Access Hollywood video was bad, but Hollywood and the rappers do sexual innuendo as well. Hollywood, Jay-Z, Enimem, G-Eazy, and the rest of the hooligans, can they get away with this? When does this end?

    Democrats decided 16 months before the 2018 election how they would start winning races again. Gathered in a small Virginia town on a sweltering July day, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and their lieutenants laid out a “Better Deal" agenda focused on middle-class jobs and higher wages — a vow, they said, that their party would never again waver from a laser-like focus on the economy. Donald Trump makes some promises difficult to keep. Just days later, the president declared on Twitter that transgender men and women were banned from the military. His action drew a swift rebuke from Democrats, who...

    Another reminder, as if we needed one, that it's not going to stop with Confederate generals. Or, for that matter, Virginians or slaveowners. Look at the history of the left around the world. And look at where they drew the line and stopped. The answer is nowhere. And so we have this insult, unthinkable in the pre-Obama era where the Dems at least feigned respect for America. An historic Episcopal parish where George Washington frequently worshiped has decided to remove a memorial plaque honoring the nation’s first president, saying the decision was out of a desire to provide a “welcoming”...

    PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Art Commission voted Wednesday to recommend the Stephen Foster statue in Oakland be removed. The recommendation is that the statue is removed from the public and placed in a place in private and "properly contextualized." The Pittsburgh Art Commission will recommend removal of the statue within six months. Foster, a Pittsburgh native who died in 1864, is famous for classic songs including “Oh! Susanna” and “Camptown Races.” Many of his songs were used in minstrel shows in which actors performed in blackface. The statue depicts Foster sitting above shoeless, banjo-playing “Uncle Ned,” a slave character from...

The industry didnÂ’t want you as a customer if you wear a red MAGA hat. Oh, celebrities didnÂ’t actually mouth those words. Instead, they embedded their disgust for both President Donald Trump and his admirers in nearly everything they did. - Movies. - TV shows - Late night monologues. - PSAs - Press interviews - Social media We got the message, even if they didnÂ’t actually say it.

    A three-judge court panel ruled Wednesday that a World War I memorial in the shape of a cross in Bladensburg, Maryland, is unconstitutional, a decision that a legal scholar says could imperil other similar memorials. In a 2-1 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit said the 40-foot cross erected 92 years ago violates the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause. “The monument here has the primary effect of endorsing religion and excessively entangles the government in religion,” Judge Stephanie Thacker wrote for the majority. “The Latin cross is the core symbol of Christianity. And here, it is 40...

    Established in 1910, the Boy Scouts have long stood on tradition, but in recent years, the organization has yielded to a changing culture by revising its admission policy to permit openly gay Scouts and adult volunteers, as well as transgender children who identify as boys to join. Mark Hancock, chief executive officer of Trail Life USA, said the admittance of girls into the Boy Scouts of America is part of a growing “war on boys” that views the sexes as interchangeable and masculinity as something undesirable. He said the decision Wednesday is just latest step in the Boy Scouts’ progressive...
