NewsFlash: Shite Happens
~ ITEM: A Tsunami Cannot Be Drawn in Pastels: On Dignity and Suffering
~ YOU’RE A PARENT, and you try and help your spawn grow up and keep ‘em safe, and then– wham! — stitches or plaster or heartbreak ensues, and we must seek to make it better, and teach them to bear with suffering, consequences, and responsibility.
As the world mourns with Japan, the inevitable “Where Was God?” or “How Can A Good God Allow This?” arises– not really as if answering theological questions is to the point in the heart of an emergency or humanitarian crisis. First, help & pray; second, long-term planning to prevent the same if possible; third, pondering What It All Means.
What It All Means 1.0
For a thing to be itself, it must do its own thing: and yet, it stands in relationship to God, who makes it. Well, who makes it, and makes it make itself at the same time. His creating is constant, not a past thing: God doesn’t wind it up, then ignore it all.
So for sub-atomics up to galaxies, from algae to the human mind: God makes us, and his creating will makes us make ourselves. If one human were to have that sort of relationship over another human, it would be a kind of puppetry.. but God is not another creature like us, but utterly other, beyond all categories.
That’s the distinctiveness of the creation told in the Book of Genesis: God makes all things, but (in contrast to all other religions) they are not to be worshipped.. the sun & moon are lamps, not deities in a pantheon.
What It All Means 2.0
St. Paul talked about this fundamental spiritual and material fact in his letter to the Church in Philippi (Eastern Macedonia):
“… continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” [Philippians 2.12b-13]
That is, it’s not an either/ or thing: God makes us make ourselves.. and through His incarnate Son, God makes us remake ourselves. 100% God, 100% us. Creation is the same: he makes each thing, and each complex or system of things do it’s own thing. Stars ignite, and burn out or explode. Planets form.. mostly uninhabitable, but in our case, with the right combination of livable elements so that here we are.
On this world– tectonically active unlike Mars or the Moon– earthquakes and volcanoes happen; the ocean can be placid or rip-roaring crazy. We decide– mostly on the basis of custom, proximity to others and food-water reasons to live in certain places. SOme palces are safer than others– Nova Scotia has few earthquakes and no volcanoes, but we can get hit by hurricanes, Nor’ Easters, snow galore, and should the Azores ever fall apart into the sea, we’ll get tsunamied. It’s a balance of probabilities, I suppose.
Would I live in tornado-alley? Nope. Hurricane alley (Florida-Maryland)? Nuh-uh. Earthquakeland? No thanks. But people do.. knowing than most of the time, it’s gonna mean nothing bad happens, but it might.
Japan is a ridge of land on the edge of the Asian & Pacific plates. It is and has always been a land of volcanic, seismic, tsunamic, and other dramatic activity. Back in the day, the old Japanese homes were made to flex, and to come apart if need be so they could be rebuilt. The world tsunami (harbour-wave) was invented by them.
What It All Means 3.0
So there’s a basic layout for why bad stuff happens– if God intervened all the time, the creation would be a puppetshow, not a real thing with real creatures and systems and events banging away and yet as part of God’s power & purpose. If he prevented sin by taking away our free will, it would be to destroy our human nature– and “our” goodness would not be the result of obedience, love, repentence, but enforcement.
Knowing The Reasons™ doesn’t take away the fundamental reality that the actual creation is dangerous, shot through with glory and darkness, life and death, and that it exists on its own terms, not for our safety and convenience. We must also remember that the Resurrection & heaven are part of God’s answer to sin & death & hell.
Aside From All That
The fundamental difference right now in response to Japan’s triple-disaster is like that with Pakistan & the Indian Ocean Tsunami: Christians (even residually cultural post-Christians) have absorbed the lessons of Christ’s life of self-sacrifice; his teaching about the Good Samaritan; and the warning that as we have done (or failed to do) to those in need– deserving or not– we’ve done it unto him, God incarnate.
So countless ordinary folks around the world are raising cash to help via the Red Cross and other groups.. thus Teh Binks-Wife & her friend raised money at their work this week, and will be selling stuff at a local weekend flea-market to raise more funds. It’s just what you do.
Rich official Islamonations, after Pakistan & the other Tsunami? “Allah is punishing them.. glad it’s not us.”
Help them all, and do not refrain from doing good when it lies in your power.. it’s Humanity 101. Heck, your soul may even depend on it. ~
Taken For Granite
~ ITEM: Lorne Gunter: After Libya, Western credibility is shot
~ COMFY, ARE WE? The soft, safe and comfy West watches Egypt & Libya crumble, and the EUtopians cannot even pretend to care, nor The Empty Suit in DC rouse himself to bring about the best as it lays in the power of America so to do.
We have since the last world war lived in the safest, richest, most comfortable, technologically powerful society ever– a veritable heaven on earth. We’ve told ourselves and heaven this is what we want: an all-encompassing cradle-to-grave mummy-state, to feed & protect, to provide & pamper.
Looking at Libya, many North Americans– largely free from local conflict for 200 years– are distanced from the ugliness of reality, bloodshed, refugees, the thousand and one horrors that attend war, civil or otherwise. Or consider life in Haiti, Cuba, or Venezuela. Taking our kind of peace, comfort, prosperity, pleasures for granted, as if our elite and rare sort of life is normal?
A kind of decadent madness. ~
They Done Gone And Evilled Themselfs
~ ONE OF THE SAD THINGS for true liberals (the old kind, not the radical usurper kind) is that evil is always busy, human nature is often bending more things, and change is for good and bad.
I remember it was mid-May 1997– the twins were still in incubators in the IWK-Grace Halifax NICU, and that hospital was undergoing its final mutation from Salvation Army/ Christian hospital to another secular corporation: no more Grace Maternity, where abortion had not been permitted. They were literally scraping the Sally Ann decals off the door as we were there day in and day out. Then, on the radio on one fine May day as we drove to visit the boys, we heard the final confirmation of the “bold, new direction”.
As of that month, the new IWK UnGrace would start performing abortions.
WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT?!?
That is: some of the same staff and doctors who were literally fighting to save sick or premie babies & mums, might have colleagues in the very next room on the same day killing perfectly healthy ‘unwanted’ preborns. And this despite a Halifax Morgentaler Clinic, plus the abortions done at the main QE2 hospital, just 6 blocks away. All shall be slimed with death, and none shall be clean: when we banish God, then Molech, the old Phoenecian deity hungry for human sacrifice must be served and appeased.
Morally and spiritually, a place fulled with murder is haunted, and evil. That bright and wonderful hospital looked suddenly sinister and darker to me that day, despite all they had done, were doing, and would do for several more weeks for our tiny babes.
Evil is ever busy. And now comes the news from that same IWK-UnGrace is fighting to kill a comatose baby against the wishes of the parents.
They ya gots the rabid Muzzies, inside and out the West.
Then ya got the intellectual enemies, tenured and respected and book-learnt into hating truth, goodness, God & The Bible, beauty, freedom, and the West.
Then ya gots the small and great, who prevent, engineer, and extinguish human life.. especially the weakest.
Who do we think we are? How shall we escape such a hell as we are fashioning for ourselves? Why should the West endure, if this is what we permit, ignore, allow, excuse, call light dark and dark light, bitter sweet and sweet bitter.
The West is beset by political, religious, and intellectual civil war, as well as the challenges from militant forms of Islam. Any kind of renewal must transform our own guilt & pride & spiritual impoverishment. ~
Harry Potter And The Oval Office
~ ITEM: In a New World Order– As the world fragments, America seems not to know what its role should be. By Victor Davis Hanson
~ ODD TO SAY, for a sometime fantasy-nerd, but I’ve never read Harry Potter.. seen a movie or two (feh). A friend explained to me the attraction: it’s partly a tale of the abandonment of children in the modern age.
Therefore, unlike The Lord Of The Rings or other 20th century fantasy stories, the orphaned Harry himself must battle Voldemort alone, not as part of a family, team, or Fellowship. So– argued my friend– modern kids find themselves spiritually, morally, and otherwise cut off from family, institutions, and even any sense of the providential care of God working in & through them, or life itself. This is a profound and basic alienation whick distorts and touches the entirety of life.
Harry Hussein Obama
The current POTUS is a Harry Potter, in a certain sense. Except, unlike Harry, there’s no ‘There’ there which can stand against the evil outside and inside himself. He’s an empty suit, creating a vacuum and wasteland with whatever he touches.
We are all Harrys in the current chaos taking over the Arab world– cut adrift, with no responsible leadership seeking to guide, deflect, or protect Western interests versus (1) the inherent chaos of such situations, (2) the tentacles of the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the region, (3) deliberate interference by Georege Soros or other non-state actors which may well tilt the balance in delicate situations towards radicalism.
Who Ya Gonna Call?
The U.N. is corrupt; the neo-dictatorship of Europe self-absorbed and cowardly and broke; and now the only good superpower is holding back– or worse– pouring gas on fires around the world. Movies always depict diplomats and spies and generals working together with the Oval Office to do the right thing world-wide, however imperfectly… one gets the feeling that Obama is more worried about bullying Wisconsin, going skiing, winning 2012, and bnkrupting America than actually taking up the countless passing moments where taking a stand or intervening or stabilizing or doing diplomacy might well transform a situation for the better.
We are like children, and the parents are goofing off– all these situations and chaotic moments are mounting up into unknown and unpredictable patterns, without even an attempt by the current American mis-administration to do the right thing.. and Europe merely looking on.. after having grown rich selling the very weapons to Ghadaffi being used to butcher his own people.
After all, if like Obama your main international lense is “anti-colonialism”, that may actually blind & cripple you when it comes to seeing former colonies struggling– 50 years after their decolonialization– as so many are now, towards.. well, who knows what. There are none so blind as those who will not see, or be bothered by reality. ~
Politics As Thuggery
“.. Freedom and individual liberty are the issues at stake. Can this nation–or any nation–long endure the combination of religious and/or secular thuggery and desire for power over others that masquerades sometimes as the outraged and aggressive victimhood mentality of the entitlement crowds?”
~ Jim Hoft ~
~ ITEM: Unions and ‘Public-Sector Thugs’
~ ITEM: From the Book of Saul: Group Targets Speaker Boehner’s House
~ ITEM: Must Read: John Drew’s Meeting Young Marxist Obama
~ ONE OF THE SCARY bits of the 20th century– and of America in the 60′s– was that we saw how thin the skin of civility really is over deeper nastiness in the human spirit. After all, between the Black Supremacist Groups, the home-grown terrorists (like Obama-buddy Ayer), and the other violence-loving folks out there seeking some sort of magic revolution where They get what’s coming to them, an orderly, free, peaceful civilization is rather the exception than the norm, outside North America.
History resembles itself. In late Republican Rome, the battle between the established privilieges of the noblity versus the aspirations of everybody else found voice in various figures, each of whom changed Rome forever, bit by bit, but eventually at the cost of the republic itself. The Gracchi sought reform, and were betrayed by the senatorial class; Gaius Marius rueled at first with expediency, and then in his later madness, began the infamous proscriptions which his former lieutenant Sulla later continued. After Sulla come the various balancing acts of Pompey, Caesar, Lepidus and others, along with Empire-wide civil war. After the murder of the dictator Caesar, another civil war, ending with the first Emperor, the brutal Octavian, later Caesar Augustus.. and all the Emperors to follow.
In each case, the paving-over of old Roman freedoms, consitutional law, custom, and established precedent was done ‘with good reason’, but with a cumulative effect of replacing the rule of law with mob-rule, demagoguery, or various quasi-regal strong-men. Rome was never a democracy, excatly, but the forms of representative government it did have were worth preserving.
The Caesar Obama moment is a manifestation of the communist/ socialist restlessness to repave and remake America without all those pesky voters or laws or old rules and stuff made by those 18th century racist ‘founders’. Redistribute; remake; hopenchange; revolution; and woe betide the roadblocks, sticks in the mud, or opponents of the empty suit in the White House, or his ACORN-SEIU-progressive minions, and his circle of czars.. all juiced up on Alinskyite radicalism.
It’s hard to believe that he has been able to do so much damage to America in such a short time, but wreckers have that power.. and the precedents they are establishign will be blighting America for years to come. If The One recaptures America in 2012 and finally puts the last nail in the economic coffin he has built for her economic future, I sadly predict a century of decline, crisis, violence, and general darkness will descend on America, as the world rages and burns and battles around her.
Will the political turn personal? Why not? Progressives grown aggressive believe it’s needful to break a few eggs to make the utopian omlette. We won’t have proscription lists (or I hope not), but threats, bullying, lost jobs & reputations– whatever gets the neo-barbarian practical men their way.
“Newsbusters spots Richard Dreyfuss comparing the president of Citizens United to Pol Pot“.. a.k.a., when sputtering progtards insist on comparing their enemies to the worst possible things they can imagine, it makes reason and real debate less possible. When Obama simply lies baldfacedly about civilian expose-artist Lila Rose making clear the bloodthirsty & illegal activities of Planned Parenthood, he shames himself, and degrades the office of President by using it to launch attacks on private citizens.
Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind; or sow the exciting revolution, reap the blood and decivilization. Sow dragon-teeth, get giant nasty fire-breathing beasties laying waste to everything & everyone. ~
Unions: Get While The Getting’s Good
~ ITEM: La vérité
~ ITEM: Could it be that Charlie Sheen and unions have more in common than we think? Will union thugs succeed in intimidating taxpayers?
~ ITEM: Nice article about Wisconsin union stickup
~ NEVER MIND Wisconsin & their “Green Bay Slackers” teachers– too much of unionism today is all about getting while the getting’s good; vacuuming up taxpayer dollars; giving union bosses something to do, and people to boss about; subverting democracy; protecting incompetence.
In our local elementary school, two teachers were known to be fails– one was a screamer, the other a mocker and crusher of souls. Any number of parents with inwardly scarred little kids protested to the Principal (another incompetent), and the School Board. The well-funded Provincial Teacher’s Union protected them, blamed the kids, and things went on their merry way.
The one teacher finally had a burn-out, the other came to school utterly drunk, and started swearing at the children. The burn-out case went on stress-leave, and the cusser got a cushy early retirement. Here’s the point: these people were not performing their duty, and were not being helped or held to account by their school, Principal, School-Board, or (especially) their Union.
Their victims (the actual school-kids) have only their parents to advocate for them against the very system mandated by law & taxes to educate & occupy them for 12 years of their young lives. Sad.
And don’t get me started about the actual curriculum!…. ~
They Warned Us, Oh Yes They Did
~ LIKE IT OR NOT, look to Europe if you would know what happens when Mohammedans get past the 5% mark, or otherwise get their uppity on. Riots, car-burnings, no-go zones, self-silencing elites, the barefaced taking over of schools, councils, and whole areas; vacuuming up benefits & money from the government to oppress the nation that welcomed Muslim immigrants with open arms. Remember: a mosque is part worship-center, part sword & property marker & imperial outpost of the Dar Al Islam (land of Islam), part noisy reminder to the infidel that Islam Uber Alles.
The “moderates” of the Muslim community are not pushy, and when radical Jihad comes to shove, will generally go with the flow. That’s why the quiet mind-your-business sorts of immigrants or first-generation Muslims aren’t rushing to condemn nasty mosques & imams, polygamy, creeping sharia, terror-plots, or the polite & political but more deeply dangerous Elmasryism which presumes to speak in their name.
EU Jelly Wobbles
Some EU leaders are now making some of the right noises about multiculturalism, but “muscular liberalism” actually needs some faith & principle in it to stand up against Jihad, let alone push back– while resisting the secular totalist utopianism that is Islam’s malignant twin. What will Cameron, Merkel & the rest actually do, rather than say?
Fab Boys, Fab Boys, Whatcha Gonna Do?
Until the West remembers herself, teaches her children well, insists on right & wrong– all grounded in Greco-Roman law and philosophy & Judaeo-Christian faith– then we will be only chasing the wind, and building upon the sand.
The current Pope and other thinkers and commentators predicted exactly what is happening now: the multi culti principle of protecting gays running head on into the multi culti principle of protecting immigrants and honouring any religion except Christianity. Radical Islam allows the persecuting of gays– that is, full time homosexuals– while winking in practice at recreational male sodomy and suchlike. So we now have Muzzie militants in the UK attacking gays.. whatever is an “Endless Shades Of Grey” egalitarian multicultist to do (aside from making sure that Christians who peacefully and quietly believe in man-woman marriage are persecuted, prosecuted, sidelined, fired, and mocked)?
The circus of simultaneous impossibilities that is secular multicultism continues to unravel and implode. How, exactly, such matters end up will be interesting to see, in a Titanic vs. Iceberg kinda way. ~
Days Of Miracles & Wonders
~ ITEM: Pergamon Online
~ WHEN READING The Bible or Ancient History, I really want to see it visualized: just what Herod’s Jerusalem Temple looked like; or Rome in her prime, or the cities of Tarsus, Antioch on the Orontes, Pergamon, Sardis, Corinth, later Byzantium.. and all the rest.
With modern computing power, all that is now ever more possible– though unfortunately, most movie-makers haven’t used such to truly show history in detail in their blockbusters. Imagine the next movie based in Rome starts with a bird sitting up high somewhere.. then followed closely by the camera-eye-view as it swoops and darts through the arches of a aqueduct, through the portico of a temple, along a busy street, over the Forum, up the hillside to the high Temple of Jupiter overlooking the city, sweeping around again with the whole city spread out into the distance, then settling on the highest peak of the temple. Get it?
The other day– whilst reading one of Colleen McCullough’s Masters Of Rome series, I looked up Pergamum– it’s one of the cities particularly mentioned in the Book of Revelation, with a group of struggling Christians facing persecution and the pressures of a powerful 1pagan culture. Got map.. OK.. got illustration, better.. got realistic 3D digital fly-around on YouTube?! Full-on history geek-spasm ensued.
So in addition to Rome 3D, Ephesus 3D, the work of the young Turkish genius behind Byzantium 1200, and many other computer reconstructions, there’s lots more localized archaeo-digital works of other great ancient cities of antiquity & of Biblical significance coming online. The History Channel & movie & video-game CG industries have had this accidental but educational byproduct, of helping to bring ancient cities back to life above and beyond the museum, the ruins on site, or scholarly books.
Especially in Asia Minor (modern Turkey) the Germans seem to be following digitally in the footsteps of Schleimann, the excavator of ancient Troy, explicating and uncovering the past by current methods and technology.
Way cool! ~

“The common practice today is to measure the Bible against the so-called modern world-view, whose fundamental dogma is that God cannot act in history— that everything to do with God is to be relegated to the domain of subjectivity. And so the Bible no longer speaks of God, the living God; no, now we alone speak and decide what God can do and what we will and should do. And the Antichrist with an air of scholarly excellence, tells us that any exegesis that reads the Bible from the perspective of faith in the living God, in order to listen to what God has to say, is fundamentalism; he wants to convince us that only his kind of exegesis, the supposedly purely scientific kind, in which God says nothing and has nothing to say, is able to keep abreast of the times.”
