Roundup

Honk if you’re paying my mortgage! – more bad news: Obama & Co. are set to “bail out” people who don’t even need to be bailed out.  They are current on their mortgages but owe more than the house is currently worth.  Sure, that’ll teach people to take accountability for their actions.  More of your tax dollars being wasted to drive negative behavior.

So, The Wage Gap IS True. Only, It’s Men Who Earn Less

As this new research shows, it’s women’s (and men’s) attributes and career choices that determine earnings. Yet there’s something troubling about Time‘s tone, which suggests that we should all be celebrating the idea of women dominating the workplace. To the extent that this trend is driven by men losing jobs and remaining out of work, and young men failing to attain the skills needed to meaningfully contribute to the economy, this is not good news at all.

Of course, we all want women to have the opportunity to compete and succeed in whatever profession they choose. But we want the same to be true for men. Furthermore, given that some women still wish to stay home or reduce their workload in order to spend time raising children, women’s higher earnings may actually be a symptom of hardship: More women are having to work more since the men in their lives can’t provide for the family alone or because they are providing for themselves.

This quote by Martin Luther speaks so well to the church today and those silent on controversial issues.  No one gets offended by people wanting to help the poor, but they sure do if you say that Jesus is the only way to salvation, that killing innocent human beings in the womb is wrong, that God’s design for marriage and parenting is one man and one woman, etc.

If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages there the loyalty of the soldier is proved. And to be steady on all the battlefields beside is merely flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point.

Being bold about everything except the key topics of the day isn’t being bold at all.

Should Al Gore be arrested for inciting eco-terrorist hate crimes? – only if people want to be consistent with their anti-free speech views.  I’m pretty sure they only oppose alleged “hate speech” that they disagree with, which is why we have the First Amendment to begin with.

Why did the media suppress the Darwinian groundings of the Discovery Channel killer?

  1. Whoa, those stats from Nebraska are just depressing. If not being pregnant is important enough for you to kill your child over, then it’s certainly important enough to warrant using a condom and the Pill, but about 2/3ds of women who abort couldn’t be bothered to use adequate birth control.

    As for women in the workplace: the idea of feminism (equality for women) is that we should judge a woman just as we would judge a man (as relevant) – it’s a variation on MLK’s “not by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character” theme. So I’m not sure that female dominance is to be celebrated, any more than male dominance is a good thing. (We’re all humans, right?)

    Furthermore, female dominance in the workplace is a result of illegal immigration, so that’s definitely not a good thing! The “jobs that Americans won’t do” are really jobs that American men with little education used to do for a decent salary (e.g., agriculture, landscaping, construction), but now cannot do since they can’t compete with illegals who are being paid under the table. Also, back in the day, a construction worker or a fruit-picker who made decent money could work his butt off for ten years, save, and then figure out how to leverage that into an education and stable employment. We are screwing the lower classes.
