  “Contraception” is Murder, a weak, pathetic response to baby murder, is sent out at least once a month.  If the gestapo hasn’t jailed you yet for defending the innocent realistically, you either have to tell me you want it or go to the website.  Emails are free but snail-mail is free only for PFCs, two grand for others.


  I think we can all agree there is nothing peaceful, nonviolent, or prolife about letting innocent children be killed. So I believe we should examine every legitimate means, including force, in our attempt to protect children from being tortured to death. I want to hear from people who’ve been forceful and from those who defend them. I’d also like to hear from those who oppose the prolife use of force and call it violence.

  Here’s the rest of Roxana Hegeman’s report on Angel
Dillard’s vindication:


  Her husband, Dr. Robert Dillard, also testified in his deposition that the agent from the Federal Bureau of Investigation who called them about the letter in April 2011 told the couple that he personally, and the FBI in general, were frustrated by the Justice Department's lawsuit because they "felt it was undermining the trust and relationships that they were trying to develop with people who were not extremists but were still pro-life," according to the court filing.

  When questioned about that conversation, FBI agent Sean Fitzgerald did not "directly deny," making such comments but testified he was trying to build rapport with the Dillards, the judge noted.

  The judge also rejected the government's request for a permanent injunction prohibiting Dillard from again contacting Means. He was persuaded by the defense argument that she would have no reason to do so since Means no longer has any plans to offer abortion services in Kansas.

  The court also noted the government's argument that Means had refrained from contacting Means while the lawsuit was pending.

  "If the glare of publicity and the prospect of additional government legal action are sufficient by themselves to prevent further communications by Dillard, they would remain even in the absence of separate injunction relief," the judge wrote. "That is, the government effectively concedes that Dillard is a rational person, at least in sensing the folly of additional communications with Dr. Means."


  And here’s Michael Bray the Great:


  Dillard Delivered from Obamanation!


   The Obamanation suffered a well-earned smack in the chops by U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten.

  Angel Dillard had been charged with various threats for simply warning would-be Tiller replacement Mila Means that her chosen profession was a de facto dangerous one.

  AP reporter, Roxana Hegeman, covering the case since it began in 2011, wrote “U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten summarily found in favor of Angel Dillard in the April 2011 civil lawsuit brought by yours truly, the U.S. Justice Department.” (See “Judge sides with abortion opponent in Kansas Case,”   15 August, 2013)

  She reports the response of Dillard defense attorney, Don McKinney: “It was a great victory for the First Amendment . . . Obviously, we agree with the opinion.  I appreciate the court held the U.S. Department of Justice accountable to the law and the evidence.”  McKinney noted that Dillard had “been deposed for eight or nine hours by the government.”

  Referring to the business of butchering children in the womb, the Obama Justice Department’s “Civil Rights Division” declared, “The right of doctors to deliver lawful reproductive health services free from threats of violence is protected by federal law,”

  Sadly, the feds want not only to protect the right to butcher children, but to ensure that no one utters too loud of an objection to the same. And they are quick to interpret as “threats” simple dialogue and fair, heartfelt warnings about the personal physical, spiritual, and psychological damage which comes quite demonstrably in consequence of “abortion.”  Indeed, the butchering of one’s child cannot be transformed into something else by renaming it “abortion” or “reproductive health service” or any other such deceitful euphemism.

  The Obamanation had sued citizen Dillard under the 1994 abortion-industry-protecting “Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE)” after Dillard  wrote the prospective abortionist who would replace the decedent abortionist George Tiller.  Two years after the mass baby killer had been terminated by Scott Roeder in January, 2009, one Mila Means had intended to take the place of Tiller. In a letter sent in January 2011 when Means was “training to offer abortion services” at the Wichita “clinic,” as Hegeman describes, Dillard warned with candor and simple speech the prospective Tiller replacement of the potential personal danger.  At the time, no abortionist had theretofore taken up the bloody trade from which Tiller had been scrupulously relieved.  As one would attempt to arouse another fellow human being from what would seem to be a bedeviling stupor, Dillard obviously intended no sinister threat.   Even, as Hegeman necessarily reports, Dillard patently presented her concerns for a fellow human being with her own return address!  Where is a sinister threat in such communication?

  The good news reported by Hegeman is that “Means no longer has any plans to offer abortion services in Kansas.”  Indeed, we hope she has come to her senses and decided that baby killing is not a good thing to do anywhere in the world and not just Wichita.







                Religion in America

        Where it was, is now, and is headed.   


  Religion in America has two streams, originally far apart but now converging. The oldest stream originated in Latin America and watered the American Southwest from Texas to California in the 16th century, with outliers in Florida and Louisiana. It’s the Catholic stream. The strongest stream originated primarily in Britain and Ireland. It watered the Atlantic seaboard in the 17th century and spread across the continent in the 18th and 19th centuries. It’s the Protestant stream. Both streams were reinforced in the 19th and 20th centuries by immigrants, primarily from Europe initially and then mainly from Latin America that continues today.

The United States was shaped by the Protestant stream, primarily by our Founding Fathers, a truly remarkable group of men forged by the bloody struggle to unite Church and State in England and inspired by English Common Law. That legacy survives to this very day. In Virginia and the South generally, the Episcopal Anglican tradition was more benign toward other Christians. This was not the case in England itself. New England was settled by English Puritans in the Congregational Calvinist tradition who, like Catholics, were persecuted by the State-run Anglican Church and sought religious freedom. Once established here, Puritans also became intolerant. Unitarianism became a Deistic alternative that minimized doctrinal conformity. The Mid-Atlantic colonies, notably New York and Pennsylvania, were more diverse ethnically, with a large German population belonging to the Lutheran tradition in Pennsylvania. Along the Appalachian frontier, from Maine to Georgia, America was settled primarily by Presbyterians from Ireland, mostly from Ulster. The Presbyterian Calvinist tradition was introduced by settlers from Scotland in 1609. The Presbyterian Church required an educated clergy, but the American frontier was too vast and remote to maintain that standard, so religious needs were met by less educated “circuit rider” preachers as the frontier moved westward. These preachers were mainly Methodists in the Ohio Valley and Baptists further south. The Lutheran tradition was reinforced in the second half of the 19th century by immigrants from Germany and Scandinavia who settled primarily in the Upper Midwest.

  The Catholic tradition in Protestant America began in Maryland, but didn’t become strong until the 1846-1851 potato famine in Ireland sent millions of Irish Catholics to Atlantic coastal cities and other large cities across America. These Irish immigrants shaped the Catholic Church in America. Unlike other Catholic immigrants, they spoke English (and Gaelic), they arrived early in large numbers, and they understood English Common Law. With these three advantages, they overcame prejudice (e.g., “No Irish need apply” and “No Catholics need apply” signs in shops and factories) by taking over the Democrat Party, first in New York and New England. The native Yankees were mostly Whigs, a party on its way to extinction, replaced by the emerging Republican Party under Abraham Lincoln. The takeover was possible because Irish families were large. Boys would become priests, politicians, policemen, and firemen. Girls would become nuns, nurses, teachers, and maids. Irish politicians cleared the way to founding Catholic hospitals and schools run by priests and nuns who made sure Catholic voters kept the politicians in power so public service jobs (policemen, firemen, teachers, etc.) remained in Irish hands. This way of overcoming anti-Catholic bigotry created a strong bond between the Catholic Church and the Democrat Party, and a belief that government provided upward mobility, that persists to this day. But it is weakening because the Democrat Party was taken over again, this time in the second half of the 20th century, and not by force of numbers but by a new ideology. Darwinism. The Rockefeller wing of the Republican Party (RINOS, Republicans In Name Only, “elitists” who are few in number but have money) has also been seduced by Darwinism.

  As defined here, Darwinism asserts we came from worms and will be eaten by worms. Period. End of story. Among the self-styled “elites” who control the Democrat Party, education, the media, and much of business and entertainment, Darwinism has made deep inroads into Mainline Christian denominations (Episcopalians, Congregationalists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, etc.) in the Reformation tradition, and has weakened the Catholic Church in America. Darwinism is resisted by Biblical Christians (Pentecostal and Fundamentalist Christians, notably Baptists, and Traditional Roman Catholics). Christians influenced by Darwinism try to meld it with Biblical Christianity by postulating a form of “evolution” that is not mindless but is directed by “intelligent design” because random genetic mutations cannot produce new species over time. Neither view can be “falsified” by scientific investigation, given our current understanding of genetics, so both remain in the domain of religion, not science. But Darwinian “elites” control education and the U.S. Supreme Court, so the Darwinian religion is taught as science in public schools. Christianity cannot be taught so Darwinism, with no rival allowed, is becoming the “elitist” dogma that shapes America today.

Darwinism makes no distinction between right and wrong. “Survival of the fittest” is its reigning dogma. Hence, the U.S. Supreme Court “constitutionalized” murdering the entire next generation of Americans, every person, in Roe v. Wade, denying they are “persons” just as it did with Black people in Dred Scott v. Sandford over a century earlier. These Justices who don’t know right from wrong are sociopaths. Think about that. The court of last resort in America is in the hands of sociopaths. Six of the nine are Catholics. Two of the six always vote with the other three, who are secularized Jews, to keep the killing going. There are no Protestants, the people who founded America and enacted the Constitution they have sworn to defend. The goal of abortion is to eliminate the “unfit” which means killing Black babies. Legalizing abortion is racist.

  How did this happen? Pride. Willful pride. How so? Darwinism insists the human mind is an evolutionary product of the animal brain. “Mind” results only from electro-chemical processes in the brain. There is no human “soul” apart from the human brain. This denies the fundamental revelation of Jesus Christ: God is a pure spirit consisting of three Divine Persons who are one, and we are created in His image and likeness. These Persons each have three purely spiritual attributes: intellect, will, and empathy. Intellect resides primarily in the Father, who instructs His Son out of love. Will resides primarily in the Son, who obeys His Father out of love. This perfect exchange of love Personifies empathy as the Holy Spirit. God is Love. And because God is Love, God is One. God created angels and men, giving us intellect, will, and empathy too. Angelic and human happiness depends on preserving the Divine order. Will must be obedient to intellect if love is to prevail. Among both angels and men, will overcame intellect so empathy descended toward hate. Why? Because will unguided by intellect cannot distinguish between right and wrong. It produces a sociopathic personality. This personality is dominant among America’s Darwinian “elites”. It is permanent among fallen angels because they exist outside of time. Men exist in time so redemption is possible. Redemption came to us as the Word of God incarnate in Jesus Christ. He taught us that pride is overcome by humility. Humility is a primary attribute of God. It comes from subordinating the will to the intellect, just as Jesus subordinated His will to the intellect of His Father out of love for His Father and for us.

  Jesus demonstrated the humility of God by being born in a cave used as a stable, with a feeding trough for His crib, and then by living humbly and dying between thieves on the cross, naked, with all but a few onlookers mocking and reviling Him. He had been brutally scourged, so His bleeding body was covered with flies, feeding on His torn flesh, defecating and copulating. He could not shoo them away because His hands were immobilized by nails. Another name for Satan, leader of the fallen angels, is Beelzebub: “Lord Of The Flies”. The humility of Jesus Christ allowed Satan to inflict this unspeakable torment on His naked body. Triumphant rebellious pride was overcome by triumphant obedient humility. “By His holy cross He has redeemed the world!” Our destiny is union with God Almighty, Creator of the Universe, for eternity. Because God loves us so much He paid this price for our salvation. When our will runs rampant, it is impossible for us to understand how Almighty God can be supremely humble. We wouldn’t be humble if we had that power!

  What has Darwinism to offer that displaces this sublime understanding of human origins and destiny? Let’s look where Darwinism has taken us. Since we are ultimately only worm food, what place is there for intellect and empathy, the wellsprings for ethics, and love? None. Will prevails: Triumph des Willens in Leni Riefenstahl’s propaganda film for Adolf Hitler. Without obedience to an Almighty God, “Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die.” becomes the prevailing ethos. Why devote the time, energy, and money needed to bear and raise children, who are only worm food like us? Children are a burden, not a blessing. How do we avoid the “curse” of children? By engaging in contraception, abortion, sterilization, and sodomy. Then we can have la dolce vita, the good life. That is what Darwinism promises. It is pounded into our heads by the “elite” educational establishment when we are children ourselves, from Kindergarten through graduate school, backed up by the media, the courts, and liberal/progressive politicians in both political parties. Not mentioned is the fact this is a recipe for extinction. Children are the only future mankind has. We exterminate our own species just so we can pursue pleasure in a mere 30 or 40 years of “productive” life. Happiness is never delivered but its allure trumps an eternity of real happiness with our Creator. Only an “elitist” will prefer this Faustian bargain. “Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven!” Pride. Willful pride.

  Racism is imbedded in Darwinism. The full title, never uttered today, of Darwin’s magnum opus is, The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. The “favoured race” is the White Race (Englishmen). This view found its way into the Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1902 edition, published at the zenith of British imperialism. Under the heading Negro you will find fourteen “proofs” that Black people are inferior. Example: “(3) weight of brain, as indicating cranial capacity, 35 ounces (highest gorilla 20, average European 45).” In the Biblical view human intelligence resides in the human soul, individually created by God. Cranial capacity has nothing to do with it.

  Since White people are no longer replacing themselves with children, Darwinian “Survival of the Fittest” ideology demands that White elites (“the Fittest”) use all their powers to limit growth of non-White populations. This is done by the American Government through USAID and by the United Nations (run by White “elites”) through UNICEF and UNESCO. The common goal is to prevent non-White babies from being born by imposing contraceptive drugs and devices, chemical and surgical abortions, and surgical sterilizations on women in non-White countries, all attacking the natural fertility of women. It’s a Crime Against Humanity and totally racist. “Scientific” cover is provided by scare tactics such as Paul Ehrlich’s “Population Bomb” in the 1960s and “man-caused catastrophic global warming” from CO2 today. Never mind CO2 is “oxygen” for plants, so agriculture would flourish worldwide. Warming would thaw permafrost, opening Arctic lands, one-seventh of Earth’s land area, to agriculture (two harvests per year with 18 to 24 hours of daily summer sunshine), mining, petroleum and natural gas production, population expansion, manufacturing, and commerce. Warming would cut shipping times to the Orient in half by melting Arctic sea ice. Rising sea level from melting land ice would have benefits, notably causing a construction boom in coastal cities as aging harbor facilities were replaced farther inland.

  How does Barack Obama fit into this picture? Recall the “Negro Project” hatched by Margaret Sanger, racist founder of Planned Parenthood, in her letter to her rich racist patron, Clarence Gamble of the Proctor and Gamble fortune:  ”The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” What trumps a “Negro” minister? A “Negro” President of the United States who got his “religion” from pro-abortion minister Jeremiah “God Damn America!” Wright. This is why Darwinist “elites” in the media, academia, and government are so committed to polishing Obama’s image no matter what scandals and crimes are traced to Obama. He gives “legitimacy” to their genocidal desire to “exterminate” Black people because he’s on board. Obama knows Planned Parenthood’s Abortion Auschwitzes are concentrated in Black (and now Hispanic) neighborhoods, making sure three Black babies are aborted for every White baby. Obama ordered Hillary Clinton to push for a new constitution that legalized abortion in his father’s native country, Kenya, as the opening wedge to aborting Black babies all over Black Africa, financed by American taxpayers. Obama is the Darwinists’ ideal “useful idiot” Karl Marx said was needed to advance his socialist/communist revolution. The smokescreen White “elites” use to conceal this goal is to brand as “racists” anyone who exposes it, and these Darwinist “elites” control the media. Obama himself plays this “race card” at every opportunity.

So where does this leave us? The struggle of our time is not between competing Christian traditions. It is between Christianity and Godless atheism “legitimized” by tying it to a Darwinian religion masquerading as science. But Darwinian science is bogus.

  Doctrinal statements in most large Mainline Protestant denominations show leadership has all but abandoned Biblical Christianity (many in the pews have not), adopting the Darwinian embrace of contraception, abortion, sterilization, and sodomy. The Fundamentalist and Pentecostal traditions in Protestantism still adhere to Biblical Christianity, even in leadership. Half of Catholics in America have left the Church to join these Biblical Christians or the Darwinists. Half of those who remain doubt the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. This sacramental belief is so central to Catholicism, when Catholics lose it many not only stop being Catholics, they stop being Christians. Their numbers include bishops, priests, nuns, and lay Catholics who run most diocesan chancery offices in America and who control Catholic education from primary schools through universities. Their political allegiance is to the Democrat Party, which has also abandoned Biblical Christianity. Abortion and Sodomy are their two “sacraments”, both condemned in the Bible because no children are born. God’s gifts counting as sacraments among Protestant Biblical Christians are baptism, on impressive display in the large Southern Baptist Convention, and “speaking in tongues” that inspires evangelization among Pentecostal Christians.

  Catholics made Obama President of the United States. Twice. Even after his anti-Catholic political agenda was fully exposed, most still supported him, at the ballot box and in Congress. They abort their children at a greater rate than Americans as a whole. In Congress they lead efforts to increase the number of abortions in America and the world. How can they possibly believe in the Real Presence? Their will has overcome their intellect. They no longer know right from wrong. They aren’t Christians. “By their fruits you will know them.”

Apostasy within the Catholic Church has happened repeatedly, most notably leading to the Protestant Reformation. In these cases, revolt began because the Church became too worldly and too tied to corrupt States. The Church reformed itself, painfully, but never recovered those who left in the meantime. Most new Christian denominations repeated this history of alliance with the State, followed by fragmentation. Within and without the Catholic Church, leaders in the rebellion were typically men whose will overcame their intellect. It led to religious wars within Christendom, and then nationalist wars when Biblical Christianity was abandoned by European governments, notably in World Wars I and II, both genocidal wars stoked by national pride. Apostate Catholics in America are being replaced by Hispanic Catholics, many of whom have joined evangelical Protestant denominations. So the two streams, one from Latin America and one from Europe, at the beginning of American history are now merging into a single stream having Biblical Christianity as its strongest current.  

  The Darwinists have no such reinforcements. They weren’t allowed to be born. So the Darwinists must seduce the children of Biblical Christians using their control of public education from elementary education through university education to preach Darwinism, and using the Courts to suppress the alternative Christian view.

  With this history, we can expect more of the same here in America. This time, half of Catholics and most Mainline Protestants will have defected to the Darwinian view. Authentic Christianity will be retained by Catholics loyal to Rome and by Protestants loyal to the Bible. Ultimately, loyalty to Rome means loyalty to the Bible. Rome produced the Christian Bible. So the battle lines will be loyalty to God and His Word on one side and loyalty to a morally bankrupt, openly murderous, inherently racist, and intellectually dishonest Darwinian ideology on the other side. God will win. He always does. We are His Creation. He paid an infinite price to claim us. Darwin gave humanity only division, destruction, and despair.

  Social Darwinists deny they can’t distinguish between right and wrong, deny their empathy slides toward contempt for those “lesser breeds” in the human family (Black people). They insist they care for Black people more than Christians do, but their idea of “care” is to keep Black people on Government “slave plantations” where their dignity is stripped away and they survive on Government handouts that stifle their native ability to compete in the larger society. Stable Black families are kept from forming by forbidding fathers of Black children from living with them and their mothers, so these children grow up in gangs that replace the Biblical family and are bound together by drugs and crime. This is not love. It’s hatred driven by fear. In large cities like Chicago, White “elites” occupy the “downtown” centers of commerce and the arts where their wealth is concentrated (the “Chicago Loop”). A “skid row” of derelicts lies just beyond, and beyond that are the Black ghettos of crumbling public housing, single households, drug lords, juvenile prostitutes, and teenage gangs.

  White “elites” know their centers of “downtown” wealth and power are surrounded and potentially held hostage by this servile Black population deprived of hope and upward mobility. Barack Obama entered Chicago ghettoes as a “community organizer” courted and coddled with money and promises designed to wean him away from his own people by stoking his pride and promising him a future that frees him but keeps them in thralldom. These tactics keep Black leadership from uniting Black people and taking over the inner cities by urban guerrilla warfare and sheer force of numbers, as Irish immigrants once did in New York City during the Civil War draft riots. Before Obama it was Jesse Jackson, for whom abortion was “Black genocide” until the Democrat machine wooed him away with ransom money and promises of a nomination to the U.S. Presidency if he endorsed the slaughter of his own people. Today young Black males in Chicago and other urban cities have two futures, a coffin or prison bars. Obama is President, prancing as Drum Major for the Culture of Death.

  White “elites” see this suppression of Black people as supremely “right” because it saves civilization from the savages who have not produced any kind of civilization in their African continent and can’t compete in America. There is little difference between this attitude and that of circus “lion tamers” who keep the wild animals in their cages and train them to jump through hoops, lap their faces, and cower before their whips in exchange for scraps of raw meat. White “elites” cannot admit this, even to themselves, but their actions expose them. They delude themselves, believing this suppression is benign and charitable. They think imposing these curses demonstrates their love. Two millennia of Christian civilization have slowly lifted mankind from degradation by preaching love of God and neighbor. Elitists tell us their sense of right and wrong comes from Darwin, not Christ, pointing to Christianity’s failures. Yet they can point to nothing altruistic or benign in Darwinist dogma. They can only point to Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, and their atheistic forebears. Not one saintly man or woman. Not one. But are these “elitists” really atheists? Or do they hate God and mankind, having gained the whole world but lost their immortal souls? Is Darwin just “intellectual cover” to hide their true identity and the “god” they really serve? The showdown between these two visions of humanity is building. America is the center ring of this mind-numbing ”circus” and humanity is watching.        Terence Hughes




  I’m including only a short selection here from Melvin and Maude because I had to get in another powerful piece from Terry.  But don’t worry, M&M will be completed.  The conversation between Mr.Veracitino (MV) and Dr. Canard (DC) becomes more interesting by the minute. Don’t dispose of any parts of this novella; you won’t find it anywhere else. 


  DC:  Fundamental ones.  Let me illustrate my point by returning to the work of Dr. Money.  Toward the end of the 1970’s he published a book titled Lovemaps: Clinical Concepts  of Sexual Erotic Health and Pathology, Paraphilia and Gender Transposition in Childhood, Adolescence, and Maturity.  Certainly not a New York Times best seller,  but a very influential book in the academic community.  In this book Dr. Money theorized  that every one of us has a unique “lovemap,” a subconscious tour guide that leads us to the object of our affection. The first lines of our lovemap are drawn in the womb, under the influence of sex hormones.  During childhood, erotic play further  sketches the contours of our lovemap, until puberty when we mature into a fully functioning lover.  “Healthy” adults then try to “match” lovemaps with someone else, an ideal lover, according to the contours of our own lovemap.

  Dr. Money thought that frustrated childhood sex play sometimes created a :vandalized lovemap.”  Individuals with “vandalized lovemaps”  are incapable of “healthy pair-bonding.” Some go without sex entirely, becoming celibate.  Others become sex addicts, engaging in sex with compulsive frequency. Still a third group with “vandalized lovemaps” find release in “paraphilia,” another term for perversion.  A paraphilia is essentially a short-cut around normal sexual behavior.  Paraphilias are incapable of becoming aroused without some “substitute imagery, object, or ritual.”  Paraphilia can range from shoe fetish to cross dressing to pedophilia.  The paraphilia probably formed when sexual arousal became associated with a particular activity.  A pedophile, Money speculated, had had as a child a sexual relationship  with an odder person; his attraction to children is  “repetition to the earlier affair.”  A shoe fetishist had probably first experienced arousal while playing hide-and-seek in his mother’s shoe closet.

  The problem Dr. Money struggled with in Lovemaps was how to classify homosexuality.  Was it just another paraphilia like pedophilia?  Was the homosexual’s lovemap healthy or vandalized?

  Since the days of Sigmund Freud, psychiatry had classified homosexuality as a form of pathology.  “Anatomy is destiny” said Freud.  The only acceptable outlet for a person born with male anatomy was to behave in a masculine way, which included, among other things, sexual attraction to females.  According to Freud, the male homosexual had had a warped upbringing, a domineering mother and a passive father.  Rather than modeling himself after his father or some other masculine adult male, the homosexual chooses his domineering mother as his role model.  Lesbians, it was thought, usually had a profound hatred of men related to some early childhood abuse, rather than a specific attraction to other women.

  For decades psychotherapists prescribed drugs and shock therapy to gays and lesbians to “cure” them of their “disease.”  A sad chapter in the history of science.

  Anyway, beginning in the late 1940’s, a new spirit of tolerance started to emerge.   Finally, in 1973, the American  Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from its diagnostic manual.

  Dr. Money had been on the frontlines of this battle to end the persecution of homosexuals.  Dr. Money himself was a bisexual.  His research into transsexualism was key in establishing the idea that sociological-cultural influences were uppermost in shaping a person’s gender identity, not anatomy, as Freud had contended. 


MV:  Why did Dr. Money express reservations about homosexuality in Lovemaps?

DC:  Because he fell back into the same mistake that the designers of traditional gender roles had made thousands of years earlier.


MV:  Which was?


DC:  That there is a natural basis for sexuality.  Dr. Money went groping in the dark, trying to find an objective difference between “natural sex” and “paraphilia,” between “healthy lovemaps” and vandalized lovemaps.”  But there are no differences – once you accept sociological-cultural influences as the primary ingredient in gender identity.  It’s all relative after than.               (tbc)

  Dear John, If President Obama had a son, he'd look like one of the children killed by Dr. Gosnell.

                                                      Sincerely, Cal



  And the churchless shall lead them:


  A northern Arizona family that was lost at sea for weeks in an ill-fated attempt to leave the U.S. over what they consider government interference in religion will fly back home Sunday.

  Hannah Gastonguay, 26, said Saturday that she and her husband "decided to take a leap of faith and see where God led us" when they took their two small children and her father-in-law and set sail from San Diego for the tiny island nation of Kiribati in May.

  But just weeks into their journey, the Gastonguays hit a series of storms that damaged their small boat, leaving them adrift for weeks, unable to make progress. They were eventually picked up by a Venezuelan fishing vessel, transferred to a Japanese cargo ship and taken to Chile where they are resting in a hotel in the port city of San Antonio. . . . .

  Hannah Gastonguay said her family was fed up with government control in the U.S. As Christians they don't believe in "abortion, homosexuality, in the state-controlled church," she said.

  U.S. "churches aren't their own," Gastonguay said, suggesting that government regulation interfered with religious independence.

  Among other differences, she said they had a problem with being "forced to pay these taxes that pay for abortions we don't agree with."

  The Gastonguays weren't members of any church, and Hannah Gastonguay said their faith came from reading the Bible and through prayer.

  "The Bible is pretty clear," she said. . . . .

    Benedict XVI’s quote here (#2) explains the  reason for #1:


  1.  Catholics have been instrumental in starting and insuring the viability of the Culture of Death.  This occurred soon after The Council of Vatican II.


  2.  The Council of the Media was accessible to everyone.  Therefore, this was the dominant one, the more effective one, and it created so many disasters, so many problems, so much suffering: seminaries closed, convents closed, banal liturgy . . . and the real Council had difficulty establishing itself and taking shape; the virtual Council was stronger than the real Council.




  Eric Rudolph’s Melvin and Maude continues from the August 2 newsletter.  I’ve now posted half:


MV:  How did Darwin change opinions bout the origins of life?


DC:  The nineteenth century witnesses another revolution in science, even more momentous than the one two centuries earlier.  First, the study of ricks revealed that the earth was much older than previously thought, many millions of years older then the biblical account of six thousand years, Second, the work of Charles Darwin showed that complex life-forms could have slowly evolved from primitive life-forms, if given enough time.

  Darwin’s theory of evolution destroyed the purposive worldviews.  Gone was the need for God, a supreme watchmaker.  The snails and snakes and birds and bees and you and me were put together by a “blind watch maker,” s aid Richard Dawkins.  The new Garden of Eden is a primordial mud puddle where the first protozoa oozed into existence.  After a billion years of natural selection, here we are, piloting spacecraft, building cities, litigating whether to allow donkeys to get married.


MV: The modern worldview must have also had a profound impact on Western philosophy, for if the scheme of the universe is without purpose and meaning, then the life of man is without purpose and meaning.


DC:  I couldn’t have said it any better.


MV:  Where does this leave the individual?  As human beings we like to think of ourselves as the center of the universe, as children of God, or at least the end product of a rational universe.


DC:  Anthropocentric fairytales.  In the scheme of things the life of one human being is no more significant than the life of one sand flea.


MV:  Sounds pretty bleak.  I may not be a professor of psychology but I do know that man needs a sense of meaning and purpose in his life.  If he cannot get it from God or nature, where does he get it?


DC:  Hi8mself.  Without a transcendent creator or metaphysical principle giving order to the universe, man is free to give life the meaning and purpose which he chooses to give it.  And his life has no other meaning and purpose.  Man becomes the “measure of all things,” as Protagoras put it.


MV:  This changed the nature of truth, didn’t it?  Formerly, truth was derived from God, or nature, or accepted authority, and it was something objective that all rational persons were obliged to acknowledge.  Modern philosophy turns this formula on its head.  The source of all truth henceforth becomes the individual’s subjective will.  We must write the table of “our own law,” said Fredric Nietzsche.


DC”  That’s correct.


MV:  What about ethics?  Central to traditional systems of ethics is the idea that nature can tell us how to live just as surely as it can tell us how apples fall from trees.  There is a natural law that allows us to tell right from wrong.  Lying and cheating are similar to violating the law of gravity.


DC:  Vestiges of the old worldview.  Early in the twentieth century G. E. Moore and the logical positivists demonstrated that moral judgments are different from factual judgments.  Factual judgments are true or false; and in the realm of fact there are rational criteria to reach agreement as to what is true or false.  “The earth orbits the sun,” for example, is a factual judgment that can be verified by astronomical observation.  Any rational person is obliged to agree with that judgment.  But moral judgments are nothing but preferences, expressions of feeling and attitude.  “This is right” means roughly the same thing as “I approve of this; so you ought to do likewise.”  Being expressions of feeling and attitude, moral judgments are neither true nor false; and agreement in moral judgments  not to be secured by any rational method, for there is none.  Particular judgments may combine moral and factual elements; for example, “Murder being destructive of human life is wrong.”  That murder is destructive of human life is a factual judgment, but that it is wrong is a moral judgment. When it comes to moral judgments there are no right actions or wrong actions, only “authentic choices” and “inauthentic choices,” said Jean-Paul Sartre.  If you feel good about what you do, then you have made an authentic choice.


MV:  In other words, whatever you feel is right is right?


DC:  Right.


MV:  If I feel good about murdering my wife in order to cash in her life insurance policy, have I made n “authentic choice”?


DC:  I don’t know.  I am not you.


MV:  Don’t the facts of human experience provide us some basis for making good moral judgments?  All rational persons agree that life is better than death, liberty is better than slavery, happiness is better than unhappiness.  These facts provide rational criteria for building an ethical system that seeks to advance these natural goods.


DC:  You’re missing the point.  Nature doesn’t whether you live or die, whether you are free or languishing in chains, whether you are happy or sad.  These are human preferences.  You can argue that living in a society which protects life, liberty, and happiness offers practical advantages to living in a society which does not, but you cannot argue that life, liberty, and happiness re intrinsic natural goods.


MV:  What about the words of our Declaration of Independence? – “we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”


DC:  Jefferson wrote lovely poetry, but let’s not confuse poetry with reality.  In reality man wasn’t created; he is the result of natural selection.  Nor was he endowed by his “Creator” with certain inalienable rights.  Rights come from the consensus that exists in a particular society at a particular time in history.  Our rights evolved from the  Constitution of 1787, the Bill of Rights, and the dozens of Supreme Court decisions that have expanded upon those beginnings.


MV:  If there are no rational criteria for securing agreement about moral judgments, how does a society avoid anarchy if everyone is free to decide for themselves what is right and wrong?


DC:  Consensus.


MV:  Murder, rape, and robbery become wrong only if the majority of people in a given society agree that they are wrong?


DC:  Correct.


MV:  But the consensus applies only to a particular society.  Another society could reach a different consensus, and there are no objective criteria to determine which consensus is the right one?


DC:  You need only look at the diversity of ethical systems throughout history to see the impossibility of determining which is the right one.  The Carthaginians and Aztecs were big fans of human sacrifice.  Who am I to say that they were wrong?  Nearly every society, including our own, has practiced some form of slavery.  In gypsy cultures it’s considered  great honor to be an accomplished thief and liar.  Different strokes for different folks.


MV:  How is moral progress possible if there are no grounds to criticize other cultures for their behavior?  How could anyone criticize Stalin for murdering millions of his own people if the majority of

Russians supported his regime?


DC:  Consensus is merely a way of facilitating cooperation within a particular society, nota method of establishing the truth of moral judgments that will apply to all people at all times.


Mr. Veracitino shook his head briefly, returned to his table to gather a new stack of books and papers.  Dr. Canard removed his glasses and carefully wiped them with a handkerchief.  Returning to the lectern, r. Veracitino resumed questioning.


MV:  Thank you Doctor for taking us on that little tour of the modern mind.  I believe it has helped lay the foundation for the case at hand, the two plaintiffs Melvin and Maude and their desire to be legally wed.  I have a few questions concerning gender identity as opposed to gender role.  I understand the two are different.  How is gender identity formed, nature or nurture, or a combination of the two?


DC:  We must turn to the pioneering work of Dr. John Money, former head of the Psychohormonal and Gender Identity Clinic at Johns Hopkins.  He oversaw the nation’s first transsexual and sex reassignment program back in the 1960’s and 1970’s.  Money is the guy who coined the terms we use today, like “gender identity” and “gender role.”  He fashioned the scientific argument later used by the LGBT movement.

  Money theorized that basic gender identity, or an individual’s sense of himself or herself as a male or female, is almost completely formed within the first three years of life.  It consists of  two arts: sex and gender.  Sex is determined by hormones, chromosomes, and genitals; gender is determined by the social roles taught to us from birth, and individual self-perception.  When sex and gender are in agreement, you have a male who is masculine, or a female who is feminine.  Gender identity is one’s personal experience of gender,  Gender role, on the other hand, comprises the stuff that an individual says and does to present himself or herself in public as a boy or girl, man or woman.  Social pressures have historically formed the significant part of gender role.  In the case of the man transsexual, se and gender are in conflict.  Although she has the anatomy of a man, she believes she is a woman, and wants to adopt the gender role of a woman presenting herself in public as a woman.  Therefore, she seeks sex reassignment surgery to bring congruity between sex and gender, becoming a complete woman.  Dr. Money concluded that the important part of gender identity isn’t anatomy; it’ perception.  Instead of compelling the male transsexual to accept masculinity in accordance with her male anatomy, Dr. Money thought the humane thing to do was to bring the transsexual’s anatomy into conformity with her perception.

  Dr. Money said the only “unalterable biological difference”  between the sexes is that “women menstruated, gestated, and lactated, while men impregnated,” but even these differences could be overcome with a little help from science.  the male transsexual is “psychosexually a female,” which is the only thing that counts. 


MV:  Am I correct in saying that Dr. Money’s sociocentric model also rewrote the textbooks to assert that interpersonal bonding, not heterosexual procreation is the primary purpose of any sex act?  Sex between transsexuals with their artificial organs is just as “natural” as sex between married heterosexual couples.


DC:  Yes.  Dr. Money came to the conclusion that a person’s gender identity is ultimately determined by the object of his or her affection, who, whether male or female, evokes erotic attraction.  For a male heterosexual, it is a female; for  female lesbian, it is another female, for a bisexual, it is both male and female.


MV:  You’re talking about sexual orientation.


DC:  Precisely.  Dr. Money is also responsible for inventing that term.


MV:  As I understand it, sexual orientation is an “enduring sexual, romantic, or intensely affectional attraction to men, to women, or to both men and women,” this definition from ne of your old mentors, Dr. Gregory Herek.  Dr. Herek testified for the plaintiffs in Perry v. Schwarzenegger, the case that legalized same-sex marriage in California.


DC:  I know Dr. Herek well.  His definition, though, is somewhat dated, in that the objects of affection are limited to adult homo sapiens.


MV:  How would you define sexual orientation, Doctor?


DC:  An enduring sexual, romantic, or intensely affectional attraction to _______, fill in the blank.


MV:  Are there no limits to the object of affection?


DC:  None whatsoever.  It must be remembered that when Dr. Herek gave that limited definition fifteen years ago, same-sex marriage was legal in only a handful of liberal states.  Less than a half-century before Perry, homosexuality was a criminal offense in forty-nine states.  American jurisprudence was just emerging from the dark ages.  People back then still thought in terms of a natural basis for gender identity.  One of the more effective arguments the LGTB movement used back then was the idea that homosexuality was immutable, like left-handedness.


MV:  Something natural, in other words.


DC:  Exactly.   Despite the fact that it contradicted everything in the sex research, the “natural” argument proved highly effective in changing public opinion.  After the liberal media saturated the American people with this message, the man-pin-the-street came to believe that homosexuals were born that way, or, in common idiom, God make them that way.  And if homosexuals were born that way, they couldn’t change, and society had no business excluding them from child adoption services, military service, and marriage.


MV:  The last half hour of testimony seems top indicate that you have serious objections with the natural argument.     (tbc)




  This concludes Cathy Ramey’s essay on Jim Kopp.  It’s fifteen years old but like all great writing it’s still  powerful:


  There is a clash between one's constitutional right to speak freely and the so-called U.S. Supreme

Court mandated right to abort without being unduly challenged over the decision.
  After all, words like "baby," "murder" and "murderer," even simple factual statements like, "Abortion Kills Children" discomfit those engaged in making small sacrifices of Unborn infants.
  The more egregious the offense society is engaged in, the more outrageous or offensive the speech demanding sanity will seem to be.
Such speakers become fair prey in an evil society.
  FACE and RICCO and Bubble Zones, Lawsuits and Unlawful Arrest become the order of the day.
Headlines blare out adjectives like "militant," "extremist" and "Right Wing" (as though being left of center is most holy ground).
  Comparisons are forced.
  Those who hold the reins during this present holocaust and insist that the sacrament of abortion continue accuse anti-abortion folk of being “Nazis.” In psychotherapeutic terms they project their own evil—an evil so great that they cannot own it—onto those who confront them.
  Such tactics work. As the abortion lobby prevails, all—sadly even the Church—are muzzled into a grudging silence over the violent deaths of Unborn babies.
  Still, a few maintain a stubborn insistence that they must be represented or protected. Absent so many other ways of calling for their safekeeping, an odd man here or there determines that even bullets must be called into play to defend them.
  One wonders if the muzzling of the pro-life movement is not an act of God as intimidation and silence give way to the sort of defense (self-defense) that the born take for granted. After all, an entire class of innocent people—the Unborn—have been denied protections which are morally, if not currently legally, rightfully theirs. All the while, a movement insists upon calendar protests in response to the rampant killing—4,000 every day—taking place in the name of "choice."
  In a culture gone mad with a sort of militant-matriarchy at the helm there is the blood cry for accountability.

  James Copp (or Kopp, depending on the news article you read) represents the pound of flesh the abortion-industry wolves are hunting these days. He is a man who once owned a car reportedly seen in the Slepian neighborhood the week before the shooting. Apparently, (assuming his brother-in-law's recollection is correct) he has not had the car in some time. He sold it or gave it away and, it is conjectured, the new owner never registered.
  James Kopp is wanted "only as a material witness," perhaps one who will be coerced into identifying who he sold the car to and therefore potentially who it is that demonstrated remarkable marksmanship that Friday night.
  James Kopp remains at large; he has "gone off the grid," according to investigators. Speculation is that he is afraid for his own safety. Pro-life activists, even avowed pacifists like Kopp, have learned that their safety too is fragile, though not as uncertain as an Unborn child's.
Damned if you do turn yourself in (they may never let you go), and damned if you don't (they are likely to shoot first and ask questions later).
  Other suspects taken to task without any evidence of wrongdoing include a man with a Website.
Neal Hosley has constructed what he calls "The Nuremberg Files: Visualize Abortionists on Trial," a place in cyberspace where those like Slepian can be listed for posterity, the record being saved for a time in history when a class of people called "the Unborn" are given equal rights and protections under the law. At that time a trial would be held and Horsley's archive would be indispensable in identifying the criminal players in the abortion holocaust.
  Horsley had the audacity to put a line through Slepian's name the day after his death. (Why archive data for a future trial on a dead man?) And of course, abortion zealots made haste to claim that such an act was callous at the very least and more than likely an indication of a broad anti-abortion conspiracy to kill doctors. (Never mind that millions of Justice Department tax-dollars failed to find the one they insist must exist.)
  Brushing aside allegations meant to send him into fearful silence, Horsley dismisses the abortion-lobby claims against his Website stating, "People who unjustifiably kill people suffer consequences . . . . The lesson of Nuremberg is that no matter how high and mighty you may be at one time, you will eventually be brought before the bar of justice. Someday there will be an accounting."
  The net intended to cast guilt goes even further than former car owners or Website owners. One paper trumpeted that magazine editor Paul deParrie had been prohibited a year earlier from entering Canada to "visit his Canadian right-to-life friends."
  The implication made is that some evil was in the offing; deParrie was senseless enough to let slip an association with Canadian pro-lifers, and alert border guards rescued the moment by turning an innocent man's car back at the border.
  Marilyn Buckman, an abortion facility worker whose paycheck is swelled by the number of hideously unnatural births done in Buffalo asserts that, "those who picket the doctors and clinics" contributed to the death of Slepian.
  Slepian, speaking as though from the grave, asserts through an old newspaper clipping that "rosary-holding churchgoers and the bishop" who allows them expression of their sincere religious convictions are liable for acts of force like the one which took his life.
  Gloria Feldt, head of the world's most aggressive eugenics and abortion lobby (Planned Parenthood-PPA) glares stern-faced for the cameras and espouses the theory that Slepian's untimely demise ought to be put on the account of "people who spew hate from radio and TV shows, Websites and pulpits."
  Implied is that Rush Limbaugh and Dr. D. James Kennedy, to name only two, had better control their rhetoric and that of their radio or church congregations by choosing euphemisms approved by PPA.
  An Episcopalian minister, Reverend Paul Schenck, laid his body down in front of Slepian's car one day in 1993, impeding his progress into the abortuary. According to ABC News, it was "his determination [that] made Barnett [Slepian] a marked man."
   “The shooter is a hero. Whatever action is justified to save the life of a born baby is justified to save the life of an unborn baby,” said Don Spitz.
  Gary Bauer of the Family Research Council summarizes abortion-think best in a recent World interview, and I quote, "It finally hit me that what they were trying to do was not just say, 'You're wrong.' They were trying to say, "You are illegitimate; you cannot say what you believe about the sanctity of life and the [homosexual] agenda. To merely speak is to incite violence.'"
  In a culture that has turned justice upside down the amount of finger pointing hits the phenomenal mark. Surely there are postal workers and GMC plant managers who bear guilt as well because, as Gary Bauer will also learn one day, in the final analysis abortion promotion requires more than one's silence.
  You don't believe that? Consider the barrage of abortion promotion mandated by recent UN Women's Conferences held in Cairo, Beijing, and other countries.
  Silence on the so-called right to abortion is tantamount to vocal disapproval. In a climate where God and His law are rejected, every prop, every person, is necessary to support a wrong of that magnitude. Ultimately one's silence—just like the silence and absence of James Kopp—serves to testify to one's guilt in such a crazy world.
  Imagine a lawsuit where the abortionist-plaintiffs assert that the only settlement offer that might satisfy is for pro-life defendants to publicly condemn those rare anti-abortionists who have offered up a more forceful defense. Such a condemnation subtly but powerfully asserts that serial abortionists really are more important, more human than the Unborn they kill.
  Monsignor Robert Cunningham of the Buffalo Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church now knows that silence is not good enough. He was asked to disseminate information on the manhunt for James Kopp to all of the churches in his area. As a result, during the first week in December, 276 Catholic churches were contacted and asked to share with the FBI any information they might have on Kopp.
  Ultimately their response of help comes down to support for abortion over and above their own faith claims that abortion is murder. Cunningham himself called the alerts a "public service."
  It is not known how often he has chosen to provide so much attention to the dying Unborn.
  What is obvious (never mind that he is paraded before us as one whose spirituality led him to attend synagogue), Slepian's own moral guilt shouts through all of the elaborate speeches in an effort to be heard. Failure of the average person to see his culpability—his blood-guiltiness for his own death as well—is reminiscent of the village people who complimented the king on his fine clothing when he wore not a stitch.
  It takes rare, bold people to shout the truth in such a climate of deception. In the case of the king, it was a simple child who had the courage to address the truth. In our day such children have been silenced to death.
  It requires that other brave souls speak the truth on their behalf. And in this culture where Christian thought is increasingly gagged, it is not surprising that some conclude they must communicate through the barrel of a shotgun.
  It takes more than a few moments to determine who is innocent and who is guilty in such a crazy world.




  Angel Dillard Wins -- An abortion opponent's letter to a Wichita doctor saying someone might place an explosive under her car is constitutionally protected speech and not a "true threat" under existing law, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

  U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten summarily found in favor of Angel Dillard in the 2011 civil lawsuit brought by the Justice Department under a law aimed at protecting access to abortion services. The 25-page decision handed down comes after a flurry of sealed filings seeking summary judgment.

  The judge wrote that the government supplied no evidence that actual violence against Dr. Mila Means was likely or imminent.

  "It was a great victory for the First Amendment," said her attorney, Don McKinney. "Obviously, we agree with the opinion. I appreciate the court held the U.S. Department of Justice accountable to the law and the evidence."

  He portrayed his client's reaction to the ruling as "joy," noting she had been deposed for eight or nine hours by the government.

  "It was a long, difficult case," McKinney said. "The government was very energetic and all the government lawyers worked very hard."

  The Justice Department's Civil Rights Division said in an emailed statement that it is reviewing the court's order and evaluating its options.

  "The right of doctors to deliver lawful reproductive health services free from threats of violence is protected by federal law," the department said.

  The government sued Dillard under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACE) after the Valley Center woman wrote Means a letter in January 2011 when Means was training to offer abortion services at her Wichita clinic. At the time, no doctor was doing abortions in Wichita in the wake of Dr. George Tiller's murder by an abortion opponent.

  Dillard wrote in her letter that thousands of people from across the nation were scrutinizing Means' background and would know "your habits and routines."

  "They know where you shop, who your friends are, what you drive, where you live," the letter said. "You will be checking under your car every day — because maybe today is the day someone places an explosive under it."

  The judge noted in his decision that Dillard sent the letter openly with her return address on it.

  Dillard had testified in her deposition that "I did what the Lord asked me to do. He impressed upon me that I needed to write the letter and I did."


  I’ll finish this most interesting and even-handed news report, by a pro-deather obviously, in the next issue.
