morality and situational ethics : not found in the vile and truly evil college class “human sexuality”

Filed under: fornication,Wisdom — Sagacious Himself @ 8:40 am

MORALITY AND SITUATION ETHICS Dietrich and Alice Von Hildebrand

http://ewtn.com/library/theology/morsit.htm

Chapter IV: Letter And Spirit

In previous chapters, we referred several times to the antithesis of letter and spirit. It is necessary to analyze these notions more minutely. It is especially important to consider when and where, in relation to moral commandments, a distinction between letter and spirit can be made. Before discussing this problem, however, we must distinguish various meanings of letter and spirit.

We must first distinguish three formally different meanings. According to the first, the term “abiding by the letter” designates a failure to distinguish the essential from the nonessential in propositions, moral commandments, or precepts. Thus, in abiding by the letter, one clings to a mere formulation, to something accidental and exterior. This can be for very different motives, as we shall see later on, but the result is always the same—mistaking the surface for the content. “Spirit” here means the real meaning of the proposition or commandment, its essence and true intention.

By “letter” one sometimes refers to actions, and by “spirit,” in the same context, to the underlying motive. A man who abstains from fornication because he is a misogynist, or gives money to the poor merely in order to make an impression, observes the letter of the commandment but fails to fulfill its spirit. Such a discrepancy of “letter” and “spirit” (in this second sense) is, as we know, quite common. Here, abiding by the letter assumes the character of a mere abstention or of acting in conformity with the commandment but without the moral motive and intention.

oral sex is, gasp, sex – STDs for all … HPV for both – virginity preseved through abstinence is the best choice

Filed under: Virtue,Wisdom — Sagacious Himself @ 4:57 am

Having oral sex while ‘avoiding’ intercourse?  How’s that logical or viable?  Certainly you will not be bringing new human life into existence only to slaughter him in selfish indifference via your orgiastic hedonism, but you both are exposing yourself to HPV: cervical cancer for her, and throat-, or penile cancer for him.  Was that orgasm worth it?

At least one in four teenage girls nationwide has a sexually transmitted disease, or more than 3 million teens, according to the first study of its kind in this age group.

Among girls who admitted ever having sex, the rate was 40 percent. While some teens [ERRANTLY] define sex as only intercourse, other types of intimate behavior including oral sex can spread some infections.

There are other forms of HPV which are also sexually transmitted, and are a serious problem. These are; HPV-16, HPV-18, HPV-31, and HPV-45.

Release sufficiently large quantities of Nitrogen Dioxide and effect a global cooling.  But since this is a false religion this action would be doubly unwise.   Perhaps the hippies could just inhale another of their preferred substances…  legalizing drugs would solve so many problems.

one is NOT entitled to free medical services — slavery is bad

Filed under: BULLSHIT,category euthanized,Healthy,Liberty,Righteous Rage,Wisdom — Sagacious Himself @ 8:10 am

“Should everyone have free health care?”

Certainly not! Medical service, like having a maid service or owning a car, is a PRIVILEGE and NOT a right. One, however, is individually obligated to care for one’s own health. But one cannot enslave others performing this service nor can one expect others to perform this service without compensating them.

Socialist health care is akin to promoting slavery.

One Laptop per Child the most ridiculous liberalist project?

Filed under: category euthanized,Humor,Liberalists,Wisdom — Sagacious Himself @ 12:53 am

Educating children is admirable.. however what good is a laptop to children who cannot read?

Once they’re taught to read do they really need a laptop?  What’s wrong with using books?

Aside from that pesky reading issue OLPC has a seriously flawed premise:

 Children need to learn learning

Yes, that’s an actual quote from their wiki.  The ability to learn is innate, as is the ability to discern truth.  If learning were not innate it certainly could never be learned

Without the ability to learn how does one learn to learn?

rediculous!

Evangelizing New Agers — confronting the old lies in the modern era

Filed under: category euthanized,Timeless Wisdom — Sagacious Himself @ 5:54 am

http://www.iclnet.org/pub/resources/text/cri/cri-jrnl/web/crj0008a.html

5. Show weaknesses in the New Age world view itself. If the New
Ager sees problems with his or her viewpoint, he or she may become
more interested in Christianity. Several areas could be
spotlighted:

    A. The New Age view of the divinity of humanity must neglect the
    reality of human evil. The biblical view of our finitude and our
    fallenness as sinners better explains the human condition than the
    New Age idea that we are all really God.

    B. The concept of an impersonal God is unsatisfying because it
    allows no ultimate personal relationship. Tuning in to “the Force”
    pales in comparison with loving and being loved by our Heavenly
    Father. Jesus Christ should be exalted as the supreme revelation of
    God’s love.

    C. Furthermore, the idea that the Ultimate Principle of the
    universe is impersonal is logically troublesome. It makes better
    sense to say that a personal God created personal beings in His
    image (Gen. 1:26).

    D. The New Age offers no spiritual discernment. It opens a
    Pandora’s box of paranormal poisons with no reliable antidote in
    sight, and ignores the fact that Satan himself masquerades as “an
    angel of light” (2 Cor. 10:14-15). The many writings of Kurt Koch
    make plain the spiritual dangers of occultism.

    What’s more, the “altered states of consciousness” desired
    and/or experienced by New Agers are often considered to be “beyond
    reason.” The danger of this irrationalism should be highlighted
    (compare Rom 12:2).

    E. The New Age’s ethical relativism (“we create our own
    reality/morality”) is illogical. A consistent ethical relativist is
    hard to find because our natural and logical tendency is to make
    absolute moral statements. The New Ager contradicts himself when he
    states absolutely that “there are no absolutes”! The New Agers who
    says that morality is relative because we all “create our own
    reality” will most likely not be content with such relativism if
    someone steals her car under the pretension that stealing “was part
    of his own reality.” Christianity provides the moral absolutes the
    New Age lacks.

    F. New Agers frequently warp history because of their desire to
    justify their beliefs on the basis of authorities of the past. This
    is especially the case when they try to argue that New Age
    pantheistic religion is compatible with faith in Christ by claiming
    to have discovered an “esoteric Christianity” — supposed inner
    teachings of Jesus later rejected and suppressed by the church. New
    Agers should be encouraged to face facts and be honest in their
    examination of history. Christians should be prepared to
    demonstrate the truth of Christianity through the use of historical
    apologetics.

    G. The New Age doctrine of reincarnation is not only unbiblical
    (Heb. 9:27) but logically untenable and ethically unsatisfying:

    1. So-called evidence of reincarnation derived from hypnosis
    (“past-life regression”) can be better explained as psychological
    aberrations or even demonic involvement.

    2. It is difficult to view the law of karma as just, or
    reincarnation as a “learning experience” (as New Agers view it), if
    rewards and punishments are given without the conscious knowledge
    of those being rewarded or punished. If a fifteen-year-old girl
    dies an agonizing death from leukemia because she was Josef Stalin
    in a previous life, but never comes to know that fact, how can that
    be considered just? What can her leukemia teach her about her past
    life behavior, if she can’t remember her past life?

    3. If all is one, and individuality is ultimately illusory
    (monism), how can individual souls be reincarnated from one body
    to another? The “oneness” teaching contradicts the concept of the
    individual; yet individual souls are required for a coherent
    doctrine of karma and personal responsibility. Some one has to
    reincarnate.

    4. The biblical teaching of the historicity of Christ’s
    crucifixion and resurrection is well established factually, unlike
    speculations concerning supposed past lives. We have better
    evidence for Christ’s resurrection than for reincarnation.

The New Age movement challenges us to reach out to those
intoxicated by spiritual deception. We must seek the Holy Spirit
concerning how He would have us witness of His saving truth to
those in darkness.

Why not to shop at walmart this Christmas season … or any time … until Walmart re-adopts its founder’s Christian values

Would Jesus Shop at Wal-Mart?

Jesus might ‘shop’ at walmart because he ate with sinners, reprobates, and the like.  Jesus loves all including those with honosexual tendancies.  Remember he forgave the whore telling her to go AND sin no more… not hey your cool have a nice day.  Activities not chaste (or otherwise not virtuous) are not to be tolerated… the person is in need of conversion, repentance, forgivness, absolution, and amended behavior.

The question is: should YOU shop at Walmart today?  especially given their new position of donating 5% of proceeds to pro-homosexual-activity (anti-Christian) advocacy groups…  obviously the answer is certainly not!  Just as YOU shouldn’t buy Ben n Jerry ice cream as a large slice of their proceeds are donated to pro-natal-child-slaughter-houses (abotion).

Homosexual activites are sinful (evil) and therefore must NOT be tolerated, nor should one tolerate, encourage, or enable others to do or support likewise.  The same is true for pro-wrong-choice groups (abotion).

the future of broadband TV is Flash module hacking

Filed under: AdNoyances,category euthanized,Download,Hackery,Hacking,Wisdom — Sagacious Himself @ 10:53 pm

The reason I “pirate” TV episodes is because I’m too lazy to build a PVR.  I was just enough UNlazy to hackup my xbox to boot Xbox Media Center, and use it to pull episodes from another computer.  And yes I prefer them commercial free.

So online, broadband TV? Its not full screen, I cannot watch it on my big screen TV.. and uck there are non-integrated commercials.  The solution isn’t yet stream adblocking… instead its the fun of flash module hacking.

Most people will suffer ads… but I will not be among them

depression hurts? not as badly as broken heart syndrome

Broken Heart Syndrome

http://www.webmd.com/content/article/11/1674_50320

The research linking anger to heart problems has a long history that
goes back to at least the 1960s, when California cardiologists Meyer
Friedman and Ray Rosenman first coined the term “type A” to describe
edgy, impatient people and showed that these people were more likely to
have heart attacks.

Depression Congestion

But anger isn’t the only kind of unhappiness that can harm the
heart. Researchers in Norway discovered that patients with congestive
heart failure who also suffered from severe depression were four times
more likely to die within two years of treatment than patients who
weren’t depressed.

The study, published in the International Journal of Psychiatry in Medicine
last November, included 119 patients suffering from congestive heart
failure. Of the 20 patients who died from cardiac disease during the
two-year study, 25% were depressed, compared to the 11.3% who were not
depressed.

Opus Dei and corporal mortification

Filed under: category euthanized,Knowledge,Liberty,Wisdom — Sagacious Himself @ 10:08 pm

The Da Vinci Code makes it appear that Opus Dei members practice
bloody mortifications. In fact, though history indicates that some
Catholic saints have done so, Opus Dei members do not do this.

The Catholic Church advises people to practice mortification. The
mystery of Jesus Christ’s Passion shows that voluntary sacrifice
has a transcendent value and can bring spiritual benefits to others.
Voluntary sacrifice also brings personal spiritual benefits, enabling
one to resist the inclination to sin. For these reasons, the Church
prescribes fasting on certain days and recommends that the faithful
practice other sorts of mortification as well. Mortification is by no
means the centerpiece of the Christian life, but nobody can grow closer
to God without it: “There is no holiness without renunciation and
spiritual battle” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 2015).

In the area of mortification, Opus Dei emphasizes small sacrifices
rather than extraordinary ones, in keeping with its spirit of
integrating faith with secular life. For example, Opus Dei members try
to make small sacrifices such as persevering at their work when tired,
occasionally passing up some small pleasure, or giving help to those in
need.

Some Opus Dei members also make limited use of the cilice and
discipline, types of mortification that have always had a place in the
Catholic tradition because of their symbolic reference to
Christ’s Passion. Many well-known figures in Catholic history
have used the cilice or discipline, such as St. Francis, St.
Thomas More, St. Padre Pio and Blessed Mother
Teresa.  The Church teaches that people should take
reasonable care of their physical health, and anyone with experience in
this matter knows that these practices do not injure one’s health
in any way. The Da Vinci Code’s
description of the cilice and discipline is greatly exaggerated and
distorted: it is simply not possible to injure oneself with them
as the book and film depict. 

Additional explanation from leading Catholic sources regarding Opus Dei and corporal mortification.
