Insanity of the Catholic Church

This morning I watched a debate between Sean Hannity of FoxNews and a Catholic priest. They were arguing over whether, as a Catholic, it's okay to approve of the use of birth control by non-catholics.

They both strenuously agreed that no Catholic can rightly use birth control themselves.

Last night, I was talking to a friend about one of the Oscar-nominated shorts, called 'Recycled Lives':

In Guatemala, over 4,000 people live in (now, next to) the nation's largest garbage dump.

Apparently the Catholics see absolutely no connection between their ridiculous adherence to the biblical commandment "Go forth and multiply", and the desperate situation in which these people live in Guatemala.

When of course, the impossibility of showing affection to your spouse without risking pregnancy every time has everything to do with it. Catholics are so fixated on the commandments of goatherds who lived 5,000 years ago, that they don't care about the drastic overpopulation it causes. These so-called "compassionate" religious figures, care more about the power of their own authority, than about letting individual human beings make the choices that are right for them. It's more important to continue breeding more and more subservient Catholic babies than to let potential parents make the choice of whether "now" is the right time to have a child.

Murder in the US

In 2011, I calculate the overall US murder rate as 4.6 per 100,000 population.

But if you recalculate this, and assumed that black men murdered at the same rate as everyone else, the overall rate would drop to 1.9 out of 100,000 population. That would give the United States the 147th highest murder rate in the world - or, the 60th best.

The insane disproportionate murder rate among US blacks is why the overall US murder rate seems so high.

I don't understand why liberals refuse to talk about this. I don't understand why blacks refuse to talk about this. Blacks are just as often the victim as the offender - almost SIXTY PERCENT of murder victims in the US are black. Shouldn't they care about this? Where are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to talk about this? Yet they are silent.

And it's not like this is any secret. This culture of violence, abuse of women, and plain thuggery is paraded around daily in pop music. It's glorified on TV shows like "The Wire…

Moveon.org Lies

I know what you're thinking. You're saying to yourself, "Of course Moveon.org lies, Publius, everyone knows tihs."

Well, this is a particularly vicious lie. In a recent email sent out to Moveon.org members, Moveon.org elites including "Noah" had this to say about plans by the US Chamber of Commerce to oppose further acceleration of government intervention in the economy:
The right-wing lobbyists at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will spend $100 million to defeat Obama's plans for health care and a clean energy economy. They call it their "most important project" in nearly 100 years.1

Your local Chamber of Commerce represents small businesses, but the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is different—it represents the interests of mega-corporations, especially Big Oil and Coal.
-- "Biggest corporate attack on Obama yet", Sat Jun 13 2009So Moveon.org is trying to paint the US Chamber of Commerce as a "right-wing arm of Big Oil and Coal". An o…

The one thing that could help.

Megan, you overlooked one obvious thing that could help. 

More regular, sane, well-adjusted people who are well trained in the use of firearms should be allowed to carry them concealed, in public.

The reason the shooters pick malls, schools, restaurants and the like is that they know noone in any of these places will offer them any resistance. Because we have in our "wisdom" banned guns from these places - even by non-crazies. So when crazy shows up to a school there is *no way to stop it*.

The meme is "Noone has ever committed a mass murder at a gun show." But it's truth. These shooters are, fundamentally, cowards. They want easy victims, and as you say, a sense of power. So they're going to go to places where we have banned guns and know they will get to exercise that power without resistance. Places that might resist won't give them the sense of power.

The obvious solution you overlook, is to encourage, educate, and allow more people to defend themselves…
