Immigration Reform

Well, I've managed to create a bit of a stir over at The Lair of the Catholic Cavemen, in the immigration debate.

Here's the first post, where I asked of Simplex Vir, "What would you have us do?"

And here is his reply. My response has been submitted to their combox, where it belongs. If you plan to chime in, do so respectfully, and bear in mind that comments submitted belong to the blog's administrator, to do with as he pleases.

More Blogrollin'

I was checking out this video about a Corpus Christi festival having to do with baby-jumping (embedded by Mark Shea here; salute to the Western Confucian). After it was over, a list of related videos came up. The one which piqued my interest was the Photoshop Effect. It ably demonstrates just how far the images we see of celebrities (especially women) are removed from reality. I've written about this before.

It is an aspect of the Culture of Death, which obsesses over sex divorced from new life, empty and stagnant. The goal of sex is not self-giving, but self-gratification, and the means is to meet some arbitrary, unhealthy, and exaggerated physique commonly called "sexy".

More and more evidence that mental health and self respect are greatly enhanced by ignoring the main stream media.

It cites a column posted on CNN by Raquel Welch, first brought to my attention by the Western Confucian. The column, It's Sex o'clock in America openly laments the irresponsibility, grave immorality, and bad behavior that the Pill enables and encourages.

Cui Bono?

Who, besides providers and irresponsible fathers, benefits from the status quo on abortion? A study of that question is the subject of this article.

Cosmetics and pharmaceutical manufacturers use the flesh of aborted children as commodities. Everything I've ever said about embryonic stem cells (especially this) applies in this situation. There's a reason I've compared people like this to vampires. As PrairieHawk says in the comments of the article, it's cannibalism.
