Your Patience, Please
~ AS ALL PRE-DEAD Minions are aware from their official Approved Guide To Teh Binky, the Binks is pretty much infallible (Chapter 31, Section III, subsection N, “Who Ya Gonna Believe: Binks, Or Yer Lyin’ Eyes?“).
Thus, even though I’ve been AWOL for a while and pretty much tuned out of the news, FaceBook, e-mail, blogs, and the like, my pretty much infallible status still stands, even if there are what appear to be blind-spots* or misinformed views or infelicities of style in the blog over the next few weeks.
Thank you for your patience in clearing up your misapprehensions. Binks forgives you. ~

~ IT NEVER happened. Not once.
Of all the weddings I ever performed, nobody ever stood up to speak out at the “Speak now, or forever hold your peace” thing (which isn’t a time to slag the couple, but report something choice-changing about bride or groom).
Sad to say, in the People’s Republic Of Nova Scotiastan, speaking up now or forever holding your peace is now available at one local high school, at least for one Christian young man, who stepped outside the accepted socialist libertarian narrative.
Acceptable t-shirt choices: Abortion– A Woman’s Business; Gay Is Great; Buddha Rocks; Recycle Or Doom; Islam Is Best; Mao Is Wow; Atheism: The Smart Decision; Hurray For Condoms; Che Guevara got erections at executions, but he’s still my hero.. and any variety of corporate logos.
Unacceptable t-shirt choices?: Anything Christian.
Perp In Offensive Hate-wear
So pity poor William Swinamer of Chester Basin, who thought–like many generations of teens over the past 40 years– to wear his opinions and commitments for all to see on a t-shirt.
His crime? A “Life is wasted without Jesus” t-shirt. In public. Where other people might actually read it. Oh, the humanity.
Now, we can debate the taste or effectiveness of clothing-based evangelism, but not that this is how a lot of teens express themselves. Nor that he has a right to wear clothing with assertions on them– as many teens do– and, further, to actually tell other people about what he believes.
In fact, the pithy t-shirt is fairly mild compared to what Jesus actually said on occasion, and his claim that, indeed, Life–and the afterlife– is wasted apart from his saving love. Very offensive stuff.
Yet this is the era of people waiting around to be possibly offended– like cow-pies hidden in the grass, waiting for the unwary walker. Squish.
Wah, Boo Hoo
Witness local atheist and delicate flower Niall Barkes (and bites):
“I’m an atheist myself and I’m kind of offended because he’s basically saying that my life is wasted without Jesus, and I think the reason for him getting suspended is reasonable.”
Free speech in a free society under God is like that, Niall. Anybody else out there getting suspended for a week for wearing t-shirts? No?
Unless you are spineless squishy liberal “Christians”, the NDP in robes like the United Church of Canada, it’s open season on Christianity. That’s because– like Jihadists who attack churches– secular socialist libertarians recognize a threat when they see it.
The actual living Jesus is good, but he is not safe, and won’t shut up and keeps reminding us of love, sacrifice, sin, heaven and hell, and all that we would deny and unknow. You know, like
….The endless cycle of idea and action,
Endless invention, endless experiment,
Brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness;
Knowledge of speech, but not of silence;
Knowledge of words, and ignorance of The Word.
All our knowledge brings us nearer to our ignorance,
All our ignorance brings us nearer to death,
But nearness to death no nearer to God.
Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?….
…. They constantly try to escape
From the darkness outside and within
By dreaming of systems so perfect that no one will need to be good.
But the man that is shall shadow
The man that pretends to be….
T.S. Eliot, Choruses from The Rock (1934)
Thanks, but God is not a subject or object or idea in our very modern educationism, as we perfect the system, forever and ever? Why is it some people still live as if fascism & Communism weren’t tried and found evil?
Sorry, but human duties and freedoms precede the state or bureaucracies or human rights experts. Where do they come from? God. How are they rightly ordered? In liberty under law.
The future of Canada as a free non-utopian idea is being tested all around us, and many of our sincere but sincerely wrong fellow citizens think “managed” truth and semi-liberty are the way forward. But I ask: the way forward into what? Countless endlessly multiplying rules for every word and action and article of clothing? ~
The Good News
~ MARK STEYN and Ezra Levant are non-conformicrat Canucki heroes– and thank heaven for SunTV, and all the journalists and commentators on there speaking out against the usual media-political consensus.
If you can’t watch Ezra on SunTV, there’s a decent amount of it on SDAMatt’s channel & Blazing Catfur on YouTube. As a chronic Steynian, I enjoy listening to Mark.. he’s a wealth of pith, humour (as opposed to comedy), not taking himself seriously, but taking the issues very seriously.
That’s why I’m Binky and not whatever generic name– look at what I say, and not me; click the links, agree or disagree, but don’t let the conform-y self-editing politically correcting mind-bot we squishy moderns all carry around in us forbid thought, debate, and even truth.
We all have things to learn.. and we must also take risks to help others de-conform and open their minds to the wider reality of what’s happening in our culture and world. Beyond that, there’s the ugly facts of bankruptcy and demographic collapse happening all around us– never mind the Titanic 100th Anniversary, that was a rowboat in trouble compared to the world situation in 2012.
If the devilish debt-loving Obama wins this Fall, we will be facing societal & global collapse. If Rombot or some dark horse wins the Presidential race, then it’s up in the air. We’re not just spending our grandchildren’s money, we’re gambling with their future safety & the health of western civilization, and creating a world on the edge of chaos.
In the meantime, let’s keep reading, watching, forwarding, writing letters, speaking out, and standing for sanity. ~

~ OK, SO SHINY PONY Justin Trudeau is a lightweight, a rich snob, a foot-in-mouth eejit, and is a great topic for giggling.
People in 2004 might have said the same thing about “Who, You Say?” Obama in the early 1990s. Thing is, even a babbling twit can be polished and made shiny for the media, electorate, made to speak from a Teleprompter, and surrounded with fog, illegal money, and all the rest– bingo.
Shiny Pony will still be around decades from now, when Harperism is a memory. If I were wanting to bring hardcore Obamunist/ EUSSR socialism to Canada– where LibNDPs are already ripe for it, and the kneepad media ready to service the powers that be– Shiny Pony would be perfect.
What if? Shiny Pony the handpuppet performing for power elites would silence a currently uppity, contrary, pro-Israel, andi-Jihadist, Obama-disrespecting government. Watch for it.
Please, O Lord, prove me wrong. ~
The Truth Will Out
~ WHATEVER HIGHLY defective, radicalized, half-assed kind of cultural Christianity
The God-King (PBUH) Barack Obama supposedly believes, he does not appear to truly and life-changingly live under the last judgement, nor all of Jesus’ sternest warnings– directed towards hypocrites and show-offs– nor the warning that all which is whispered shall in That Day be shouted from the rooftops. You know, listen to Mozart’s “Dies Irae” for an idea of actual Christianity & the End Times.
Hateful racists Brenda Elliot and the Jew Aaron Klein have done much to unearth the deliberately hidden, falsified and whitewashed life of the current resident of the White House.. and another book is either just out or soon to be so. The have done us and history a great service
Still, a Christian who truly believes that God our saviour and judge knows all, and only forgives sins confessed and repented of, who walks this life surrounded by the blessed trinity in whom there is no darkness, lies, or shadow of turning, does well to keep in that light, to live openly and frankly and with a true fear and love of God.
Obama– like many public figures– would rather risk it, deny, dodge, double-deal, dissemble– and leave the whole truth about himself to the misty future when it can no longer affect his power, or almighty utopian agenda.
The adulterous anti-colonialist & Marxist Jeremiah Wright may forgive Obama, but Barack seems to laugh off the final judgement of God, apparently cocksure that God is on his side– and so not acting with any sense or sensible self-doubt that guides most of us into a little humility and caution when we have great or little things under our responsibility.
Lord have mercy upon him, and all of us. ~
Bend Over, Here It Comes
~ ITEM: Privileging hybrids a visible reminder of class inequality
~ ITEM: Mitsubishi Electric Car
~ SADLY, MANY Leftists are cheerful semi-fascists.
Back in the day, ye olde Soviet officials would regularly plonk people in Psych Hospitals for insanity.. because they were in any way discontented with the worker’s paradise.
The wretched psychologization of language and politics– witness the universal use of the suffix ‘phobia’ to blanket condemn opponents of whatever smelly little orthodoxy they are on about.
How bad is it now? Well, aside from “Phobia” being rammed down the throats of school children and on and on, now it’s a selling-point for.. cars. Mitsubishi electrics.
OK, it’s funny– but using the “phobia” tag isn’t. Further.. not wanting to pay $32 large for a tiny car that might help the environment a bit (how many precious earth-metals in those batteries?) is a sign of (snicker) mental illness?
Killing Us Softly with His Ride
I drive a small (fuel efficient) SUV.. before that, a large van. It’s obviously because (a) I hate mother earth, (b) I love buying gas, (c) think Smart Cars are portable piggy-banks (OK, that one is true), (d) hate coal-fired ‘electric’ cars, (e) really love the smell of burning carboniferous dino-plants.
Nope. I will cheerfully buy a hybrid or electric when (1) we’re pretty sure they won’t melt or self-ignite, (2) there are quick-charge places at most gas stations, (3) they won’t strand me and mine in a snow storm or the middle of the woods at 1am, (4) home or neighbourhood solar panels & batteries will charge the thing off-grid.
That’s right, Binky is ACTUALLY more hippy than this current crop of poseur eco-capitalists.
Right now, Hybrids & electrics are over-priced urban middle-class hipster & hippy feel-good propaganda, shifting the hydrocarbons just out of sight.. in our case, to the provincial coal-fired generators burning very dirty Cape Breton coal.
As far as “Smart” cars, this dumbkopf would rather get the same mileage (and two more seats, and a lot more safety) out of the smallest Toyota products. ~
The Bloated Absolutist
~ ITEM: The Stripping of the Altars: Traditional Religion in England, 1400-1580
~ AS A LOVER of history, I do not think it strange to feel strongly about people and events of the past.
During the last while, I’ve watched a fair amount of historical stuff on YouTube and elsewhere, and together with past studies and reading, I’ve revisited the ruinous reign of Henry The Terrible, 8th English monarch of that name.
Pardon if Teh Binky repeats hisself on this theme– my brain is a slow hamster on a tiny wheel.
A Whole New World
The worst part of the reign of Henry VIII is the failed possibilities: his monarchy might have heralded a true renaissance of English Christianity, culture, society, arts and letters, a real Christian humanism which– as Erasmus and Thomas More had hoped– would be a blessing to England and the world.
The young new-minted King of 1509 was a rock-star of his time; educated, strong and athletic, a pious Catholic, a dreamer who loved the new learning, but also the best of medieval chivalry and literature. The Tudors seemed a new start, and although Henry VII had abused the power of the state to fill his coffers, young Henry seemed the very opposite of his father.
Then it all imploded.
WORST. KING. EVER.
As it was– just as Henry’s bloating corpse lay in a neglected coffin while dogs licked up the seeping blood– the sheer wreckage of his own land and people, under a promising king become a wolf and heretic and monster of self-will, would doom England to nearly 2 centuries of warfare, division, persecution, wrecking and civil war, and regicide.
The strongest Catholic nation in Europe became a persecuting petty bureaucracy and secret police state, not only raping the monasteries, but plundering every church and parish, and hunting down the faithful as if they were enemies of God and the state.
Never since the Norman invasion had all the power of the crown been turned so violently against the English people. All the power of the medieval bureaucracy, all the loyalty of the people to the crown, all were gradually turned into a police-state checking the loyalty and religious life and submission of England to the contradictory enormities of Henry’s making himself a modern dictator, semi-divine master of church and state.
The older tradition of rule was with the will of the people, and under the law: France and the Normans introduced the idea of divine right– and the absolute power– to English monarchy, and Henry became the absolutist ever.
One Wee Example
When it comes to messianical leadership, Der Fuhrer or President Hopenchange are tyrants-come-latelies. Look at the frontispiece of Henry’s 1539 Great Bible. Once you get past all the ‘Vivat rex!’ (Long Live The King!) scrolls and grateful-looking subjects, there’s Old Bloaty himself, handing down the new Bible to everybody. All well and good.. except– where’s, you know, God? It’s a little bit of Tudor “Where’s Waldo”: a micro-Christ is visible like a hasty afterthought in a very tiny cloud above a very large and central Henry VIII, like Dr. Seuss’ Yertle The Turtle, master of all he surveys.. perhaps even God.
Finally, & In Conclusion
It still makes me sad, and angry, and no more so than at the ‘official’ state church version that paints Anglicanism as the inoffensive genteel broad middle way, etc. etc. — it’s rather like attending a fine art gallery, and finding out later the paintings were Nazi plunder from murdered owners. ~

~ ITEM: VIDEO: A Savage Bully– Ezra Levant looks at how Dan Savage bullies others in the name of ‘anti-bullying’.
~ DEAR OH DEAR— Dan Savage has caught us all. We Christians, out busy stoning infidels, hanging homosexuals, unfreeing slaves, and burning books. The local Anglican Church Women are busy knitting rocks and taking up collections for our next crusade even as I speak.
The Bible does not reflect our current amazing ideas. Who knew? There are ugly bits in Holy Writ– human sacrifice, rape, incest, slavery, hookers, sodomy, hellfire, merciless war, gory executions, suicide, a spike through the head– a shocker. The full gamut of sin is there in black and white and red. The Bible apparently says some things are good, some evil, and furthermore, that God minds our business.
Hurray for Dan Savage!.. for reminding us that the Bible is not a safe piece of literature or scholarly toilet-paper or mindless crap (the Bible also talks about defecation repeatedly). It’s dangerous. Alive. Bitey. Confusing. Glorious. Shot through with light and dark. Not always blindingly obvious. Transformative.
Not A Bug, A Feature
Thing is, that’s been known forever. By the Hebrews, called by God, who wrote the first scrolls; by the priests and rabbis who taught and articulated it; by the commentaries on the Law like the Mishnah; by Jesus and his disciples; by the first bishops and defenders of the faith, through almost 2000 years (and 2000+ years before that), and onwards to the apologists and evangelists and scholars of the faith in The Year Of Our Lord 2012.
What Dan Savage says is news only to an age profoundly ignorant of the content and even cultural resonances of the Bible; to agnostics and atheists always glad to give religion a poke in the eye. Actual seekers or those trying to understand the Bible can get a world of books, audio, video, and interpretative material to grapple with– if not resolve– all the wierd or gross or confusing bits of the Bible.
There are those who might wish the Bible to have all the excitement and relevance of a bureaucratic report from the Department Of Inoffensive Reports, but thank heaven reality– and God– and his doings in the world with his eople– just aren’t that neat, boring, or sleep-inducing.
Free Flights Now!
This guy should not have been invited to speak in a state-sponsored school, where the message and the teaching are considered ‘official’. Further, if Savage was allowed to one-sidedly savage the Holy Book of the Jews & Christians, was a reasonable response scheduled for a Christian/ Jewish defense of faith & the messy bits of Scripture?
You will note that Mr. Savage went on to mock the Christians who were upset enough over his verbal abuse to– what?– stone him? Shout him down? Bomb his home? Burn down his workplace? Send death-threats? Threaten his relatives? Beat him up?– no, to quietly, politely, and respectfully disagree and leave.
One more thing– if Dan the Man is an equal-opportunity religion-basher (he’s not), then I will buy him a ticket to Mecca and Amritsar, so he can publicly point out the bullshit in the Koran, and the teachings of Sikhism. Fair is fair, right?
Then on to Kano Nigeria, where he can mock over the graves of those stupid bigoted Christers recently slain by Jihadists over Easter. Cuz him so smarter. ~

A Song for St. Cecilia’s Day, 1687. John Dryden
FROM harmony, from heavenly harmony,
This universal frame began:
When nature underneath a heap
Of jarring atoms lay,
And could not heave her head,
The tuneful voice was heard from high,
‘Arise, ye more than dead!’
Then cold, and hot, and moist, and dry,
In order to their stations leap,
And Music’s power obey.
From harmony, from heavenly harmony,
This universal frame began:
From harmony to harmony
Through all the compass of the notes it ran,
The diapason closing full in Man.
What passion cannot Music raise and quell?
When Jubal struck the chorded shell,
His listening brethren stood around,
And, wondering, on their faces fell
To worship that celestial sound:
Less than a God they thought there could not dwell
Within the hollow of that shell,
That spoke so sweetly, and so well.
What passion cannot Music raise and quell?
The trumpet’s loud clangour
Excites us to arms,
With shrill notes of anger,
And mortal alarms.
The double double double beat
Of the thundering drum
Cries Hark! the foes come;
Charge, charge, ’tis too late to retreat!
The soft complaining flute,
In dying notes, discovers
The woes of hopeless lovers,
Whose dirge is whisper’d by the warbling lute.
Sharp violins proclaim
Their jealous pangs and desperation,
Fury, frantic indignation,
Depth of pains, and height of passion,
For the fair, disdainful dame.
But O, what art can teach,
What human voice can reach,
The sacred organ’s praise?
Notes inspiring holy love,
Notes that wing their heavenly ways
To mend the choirs above.
Orpheus could lead the savage race;
And trees unrooted left their place,
Sequacious of the lyre;
But bright Cecilia rais’d the wonder higher:
When to her organ vocal breath was given,
An angel heard, and straight appear’d
Mistaking Earth for Heaven.
As from the power of sacred lays
The spheres began to move,
And sung the great Creator’s praise
To all the Blest above;
So when the last and dreadful hour
This crumbling pageant shall devour,
The trumpet shall be heard on high,
The dead shall live, the living die,
And Music shall untune the sky!
