Killer Chic

Today, May 1, is the Victims of Communism Day.  The above video is a nice commentary on the sickening adoration given by some Hollywood elites to some Communist murderers.   This phenomenon is a combination of raw ignorance, historical amnesia, guilt over wealth, loathing for the United States, and an infantile Leftism. 

I pray that the bloody lessons we learned about Communism in the last century will not be repeated in this one.  We do owe the Communist regimes one debt of gratitude however.  They were, and are, living proof that even the most blood-stained regimes cannot forever suppress the human spirit and that all such despotisms ultimately fall.  Human freedom may be denied and crushed, but the desire for freedom put into each human soul by the hand of God will ultimately assert itself, no matter how heavy the odds against it.

I love the dry humour of the English!

Men of Harlech

Something for the weekend.  Men of Harlech, the traditional battle song of Welsh regiments in the British army.  The song has many variant lyrics.  The most famous version is doubtless the one written for the film Zulu (1964).

The Naked Darwinist

I’ve written about this issue before. Now I’m going to, as I hear the politicians say on C-SPAN, revise and extend my remarks.

What inspired me to write this time around was a discussion on facebook about a new page dedicated to finding 1 million people who don’t believe in evolution. Of course, the discussion was taking place among people who obviously accept the theory of evolution. I’m not sure what the politics of each involved are, but I can say the following: they are mostly young, they are mostly in college. That means their politics probably lean left, if they don’t topple over to the left. Some might even lean right, and secular conservatives are not unheard of.

They may disagree on fiscal issues and even in some cases, “social” issues – but there is almost a unanimous consensus among educated people that not only is the theory of evolution true; anyone who doesn’t accept it as true without hesitation or reservation is a backwards fool, someone who should keep out of science, keep out of politics, and in one case I saw in this particular discussion, should not be allowed to breed.
