    In Making Gay Okay, Robert Reilly says the ascendancy of men-who-have-sex-with-men (MSM) started with Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s victory over Aristotle and that once philosophy fell the triumphant march through the institutions was quick and maybe even inevitable.Reilly explains that the debate centers on the question of what is natural and not, and how to distinguish between right and wrong. He describes how the Greeks fell in love with reality when they discovered nature and that the purpose of things was knowable and unchangeable even by the whim of gods.The author writes, “A dog wagged his tail because that was the...
  • The New Homophiles (Chaste in thought-word-deed, against "Gay Marriage", --- and proud?)

    [Prefatory notes] Defining and using terms in this debate is fraught with difficulties. Gay can be a political term of the sexual left. Many consider homosexual to be pejorative. Then there is same-sex attracted. I am using gay out of deference to the good people I am writing about. Homophile was the term used for gay groups in the 1950s and 60s, prior to the birth of the modern gay rights movement. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -...

    Not caring about what happens to gay men is like not caring about prison rape. Prisoners are our brothers, too, and so are gay men. We must care deeply about the abuse of our brothers in prison and we must care deeply about the lives led by our gay brothers. Prison rape seems a world away from us, a subject we try not to think about, yet it is rampant, dehumanizing and deadly dangerous. In the same way, we avert our gaze from the lives led by gay men. Certainly ignoring the lives of gay men is what the paladins...

    The Muslim terrorist group Qaadat el-Jihad claimed responsibility Saturday for a terrorist bombing in Burgas, Bulgaria. The bombing in Bulgaria last week killed five Israelis, one a pregnant woman. The Lebanese paper El-Nashra reported that the group, which has ties to Al-Qaeda, claimed responsibility in an email to the Arab press.

    For computer users, a few mouse clicks could mean the difference between staying online and losing Internet connections this summer. Unknown to most of them, their problem began when international hackers ran an online advertising scam to take control of infected computers around the world. In a highly unusual response, the FBI set up a safety net months ago using government computers to prevent Internet disruptions for those infected users. But that system is to be shut down. The FBI is encouraging users to visit a website run by its security partner, http://www.dcwg.org , that will inform them whether they're...

    Imagine thousands of government employees reporting to work each morning at their government offices and then doing no government work. They use government workspace, government telephones and government computers, all while working on projects unknown and unidentified to their government employers. They receive hefty taxpayer-funded salaries, promotions, bonuses and benefits, plus generous government pensions when they retireall without doing any work on behalf of the taxpayer. Instead, they work as paid political operatives for powerful government unions. Welcome to the common practice of "official time." Sometimes called "release time," it's a mechanism by which the government pays union officials to...

    United States Coast Guard. Image by U.S. Coast Guard President Barack Obamas administration has ordered the United States Coast Guard to protect grain ships at the Port of Longview from violent Occupy protesters and dockworker union members, according to a local news report. The Daily News in Longview, Wash., reported that the Coast Guard will protect a grain shipment from an onslaught of Occupy protesters and members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU). The ship will be transporting grain to Asia. A date for the shipment has not yet been set. The group of leftwing activists had shut...

    Cash is the best-selling investment sector for October as investors shun stock markets. Cash saw the largest inflows of all the investment sectors last month, as fear over the eurozone crisis caused cautious investors to shun the stock market. Online investment platform Fidelity Fundsnetwork revealed that its best selling sector for the month of October was the UK Money Market and the best selling fund its own Cash fund. More than 26.7m was put into cash last month with investors sheltering 12.9m directly through the platform. The second most popular sector was the Cautious Managed sector, revealing that even...

    I fleetingly touched on this point in a previous post, but it's important enough to merit its own item. The MSM is reporting President Obama's newly articulated support for state-led alternatives to his healthcare law as if it's a major concession to post-partisan consensus. It's nothing of the sort, as CATO's Michael Cannon incisively describes: The New York Times reports: Seeking to appease disgruntled governors, President Obama plans to announce on Monday that he supports amending the 2010 health care law to allow states to opt out of its most burdensome requirements three years earlier than currently permitted.[CATO again]: It's...

    Says Iranian deal is a maneuver to prevent agreement on sanctions. The Israeli government described the latest Iranian nuclear deal as a trick designed to prevent the imposition of UN Security Council sanctions. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with the "Septet" of seven key ministers on Tuesday, to discuss Israel's response to the Iranian nuclear fuel reprocessing agreement, brokered by Brazil and Turkey. Netanyahu instructed ministers not to make any public pronouncements before they had agreed a united response. Ministers concluded that the latest agreement is a maneuver to prevent the UN Security Council from agreeing on sanctions. They concluded...

    Competitiveness: The president spent Tax Day reassuring Florida voters that money will keep flowing to NASA. But in space as well as on Earth, we'll be an unexceptional nation. In space, no one can hear you scheme. President Obama's speech at the Kennedy Space Center will never be confused with President Kennedy's clarion call in 1961 to send an American to the moon within a decade. Rather it was an admission that we will now boldly go where no one wants to go.

    A lot of colorful phrases are associated with World War II. Like, "Nuts!" -- one American commander's defiant response to German surrender demands. Or, "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition," attributed to a U.S. Navy chaplain during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. But here's another one, appropriate for this season. Trick or treat! The trick was setting up phony, inflatable tanks, trucks and artillery under cover of darkness. Then generating some ersatz radio traffic between units and commanders. Igniting flash canisters mimicking the glare of cannons firing. Erecting loudspeakers and playing the pre-recorded sounds of troops and vehicles...

    WASHINGTON After weeks of secretive talks, a bipartisan group in the Senate edged closer Monday to a health care compromise that omits a requirement for businesses to offer coverage to their workers and lacks a government insurance option that President Barack Obama favors, according to numerous officials. Like bills drafted by Democrats, the proposal under discussion by six members on the Senate Finance Committee would bar insurance companies from denying coverage to any applicant. Nor could insurers charge higher premiums on the basis of pre-existing medical conditions. But it jettisons other core Democratic provisions in a reach for bipartisanship...

    WASHINGTON August means beaches and barbecues. And for some, a chance to rally the troops for this fall's health care showdown. Senate postponement of work on health care until September gives interest groups on both sides an entire month to whip up supporters, and pushes off crucial votes on the overhaul effort until fall when people are likely to refocus on the issue. Backers and opponents of President Barack Obama's top domestic priority plan to use Congress' August recess for intensive advertising and grass-roots campaigns in hopes that energized voters might influence wavering lawmakers. Even so, some political...

    WASHINGTON In a triumph for President Barack Obama, the Democratic-controlled House narrowly passed sweeping legislation Friday that calls for the nation's first limits on pollution linked to global warming and aims to usher in a new era of cleaner, yet more costly energy. The vote was 219-212, capping months of negotiations and days of intense bargaining among Democrats. Republicans were overwhelmingly against the measure, arguing it would destroy jobs in the midst of a recession while burdening consumers with a new tax in the form of higher energy costs. The House's action fulfilled Speaker Nancy Pelosi's vow to clear...

    Cap and trade is the tax that dare not speak its name, and Democrats are hoping in particular that no one notices who would pay for their climate ambitions. With President Obama depending on vast new carbon revenues in his budget and Congress promising a bill by May, perhaps Americans would like to know the deeply unequal ways that climate costs would be distributed across regions and income groups. Politicians love cap and trade because they can claim to be taxing "polluters," not workers. Hardly. Once the government creates a scarce new commodity -- in this case the right to...

    A Purge has been conducted on the FSB, MVD Prosecutors Office, Customs and the Federation Council. On Friday the Prime Minister was directed by the Russian president to order the forced retirements and firing of high ranking members of the FSB, MVD Prosecutors and Customs office and the Federal Customs Service. Federation Council members were also told to step down. These retirements were conducted in accordance with the governments anti-corruption campaign. A government source told Interfax that this action was not a witch hunt, but was conducted in order to counteract the criminal elements that have taken hold in the...

    Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has dismissed Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's surprise letter to President Bush, saying it does nothing to address the standoff over Tehran's nuclear program. Rice told the Associated Press Monday the letter does not address any issues of U.S. concern. She said the letter is about 18 pages long and talks about history, philosophy, and religion. She says the letter is not the place to find a diplomatic opening to engage Iran on the nuclear issue. Rice is in New York meeting with other diplomats from the permanent U.N. Security Council members on possible sanctions against...

    Mark Twain said it best when he commented: "There are lies, damn lies and ballot initiatives." --snip-- One of these deceptions involves Proposition 71, the measure that created California's $3 billion stem cell research agency in 2004. In marketing this initiative, proponents said the state would receive not only miracle cures and reduced medical costs, but also up to $1.1 billion in royalties from new stem cell innovations. Now we are learning that this promise, at best, was misleading. At worst, it was a cynical ruse. As was entirely predictable, biotech leaders and many university leaders - key supporters of...

    (CINCINNATI, September 8th, 2004, 5:30 p.m.) -- A heckler who briefly interrupted a speech by Democrat John Kerry on Wednesday said he was assaulted by two men near him in the crowd before others shouted him down with cries of "Kerry, Kerry." Police said Michael Russell, 48, of Foster, Ky., complained that his neck was hurt by a man who put him in a headlock after Russell started to yell about Kerry's allegation of war atrocities after returning from Navy service in Vietnam. City police were investigating. No charges had been filed Wednesday, police spokesman Lt. Kurt Byrd said. Russell,...

    SACRAMENTO - The Proposition 58 spending measure on the March 2 ballot was supposed to propel Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's Proposition 57 deficit bond to victory, but could instead bring it down. Proposition 58 - which the governor intended to be a tough companion limit on spending - wound up a much weakened twin that also has to pass in order for the bond to go into effect. The Republican governor, while urging voters to approve his $15 billion deficit bond, still speaks of the companion ``balanced budget'' initiative as if he hadn't compromised to get the Democrat-dominated Legislature to put...

    Democrats' fundraising ruse undercuts election reforms Tue Feb 10, 7:27 AM ET For decades, Democrats championing campaign finance reforms blamed Republicans for blocking efforts to curb the influence wealthy donors have on politics. And Republicans readily conceded they opposed limits that might curtail their advantage in raising money from deep-pocketed allies. Now, two years after passage of the biggest reform of campaign financing in a generation, the parties have reversed roles: Democrats are spearheading efforts to bypass a ban on huge donations. Republicans are crying foul - though they're preparing to use the same fundraising ploy if the Federal Election...
