12 Rules For Being A Liberal

12 Unspoken Rules For Being A Liberal

The most dangerous:
3) What liberals like should be mandatory and what they don't like should be banned: There's an almost instinctual form of fascism that runs through most liberals. It's not enough for liberals to love gay marriage; everyone must be forced to love gay marriage. It's not enough for liberals to be afraid of guns; guns have to be banned. It's not enough for liberals to want to use energy-saving light bulbs; incandescent light bulbs must be banned. It's not enough for liberals to make sure most speakers on campuses are left-wing; conservative speakers must be shouted down or blocked from speaking.

A psychotherapist contends that the DSM, psychiatry's "bible" that defines all mental illness, is not scientific but a product of unscrupulous politics and bureaucracy.

Creating Christians Who Can’t Believe

deviantmonk — Creating Christians Who Can’t Believe:

We claim to belong completely to God and to give our lives totally to him, and in the songs we sing we say it to the point of nausea. But when it comes down to it we really don’t seem to mean it. For if we really belong to God, then he really can do whatever he wants with us without having to justify the reasons, but we usually try to ignore that by imagining that God’s will means we will eventually get exactly what we wanted all along. 
Nothing in our worship would seem to argue otherwise.

Marriage fundamentals

Piers Morgan, Suze Orman Debate Marriage with Heritage's Ryan Anderson

This is IMV absolutely inarguable:
“Marriage exists to bring a man and a woman together as husband and wife to be father and mother to any children their union produces. Marriage is based on the biological fact that reproduction depends on a man and a woman, and on the social reality that children need a mother and a father.”
Make that a male father and a female mother.

50 Missions Tail Gunning on a B-24 Bomber

ShrinkWrapped: Earn This:
We would take a watermelon up there so it would be ice cold when we landed, you know. We'd wrap it in a towel. It was that kind of thinking. And we would land and of course we got priority, because if you had wounded abroad or something you landed first. And then we got down and we got to the base and then we went to the Red Cross where they gave us coffee and donuts. My missions were so terrifying, between you and me, that for years I couldn’t take donuts. I could never take … eat a donut and have coffee together because that was the first thing they gave you was coffee and donuts.

Don't write off mainline Protestants | Religion News Service

Robert P. Jones: Don't write off mainline Protestants | Religion News Service:
More than three in 10 Americans are switching their religious affiliation at least once — and I don’t just mean Methodist to Presbyterian. I mean Catholic to mainline Protestant or Muslim to Buddhist. They’re big switches, not just denominational trades.

Guns, Walmart, and crony capitalism - The Week

Guns, Walmart, and crony capitalism - The Week:

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to see the potential for how Walmart could profit from cutting a deal. As The Washington Post reported last week:
One potential strategy [for gun control] would be to win support for specific measures from interest groups that are normally aligned with the NRA, according to one person who works closely with the administration on gun-related issues and who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the issue's sensitivity.
For instance, this person suggested, Walmart and other major gun retailers may have an incentive to support closing a loophole that allows people to bypass background checks if they purchase firearms at gun shows or through other types of private sales. That could result in more people buying guns in retail stores. [Washington Post]
Or as the DC Examiner's Tim Carney explained on Fox Business, "it's just like [how] car dealers would benefit if you made it harder for me to sell my car to you."
This might be a good time to explain why conservatives like Carney don't trust big business. (I know there is a stereotype that says conservatives love big business, but it's simply not true.) The fact is that big business loves regulations because they have a competitive advantage when it comes to complying. Their upstart competitors don't have that same capacity, and thus, cannot compete.
Some call this crony capitalism; others, such as Jonah Goldberg, have labeled it "Liberal Fascism." And it seems to be on the rise.

Spengler's Ominous Prophecy | The National Interest

Spengler's Ominous Prophecy | The National Interest:
A QUESTION haunts America: Is it in decline on the world scene? Foreign-policy discourse is filled with commentary declaring that it is. Some—Parag Khanna’s work comes to mind—suggests the decline is the product of forces beyond America’s control. Others—Yale’s Paul Kennedy included—contend that America has fostered, at least partially, its own decline through “imperial overstretch” and other actions born of global ambition. Still others—Robert Kagan of the Brookings Institution and Stratfor’s George Friedman, for example—dispute that America is in decline at all. But the question is front and center and inescapable.

Defending Methodist Doctrine

United Methodist Evangelist Eddie Fox Defends Methodist Doctrine « Juicy Ecumenism:
When Methodist theologian Albert Outler addressed the Congress on Evangelism 40 years ago he rued that modern Methodism was no longer based on grace but on a new optimism centered on social and political change. Outler called for a new Great Awakening similar to early Methodist revivalism that left one of every three Americans Methodist. ...
