Free Speech vs. Preferred Pronouns

American Elephants

Well said. Attempting to make what is classified as a mental disorder called gender dysphoria into a casual choice is confusing a lot of parents, who don’t know where to turn. The Left carries things too far.

They hate President Trump, fear his accomplishments, and hope to defeat him with a web of identity politics. With luck they can make those confused parents be afraid of Trump, or find him too mean to win reelection in 2020. The current biggest evil is wrong-think, or offending fearful snowflakes. We had someone, local, I think, who ‘identified’ as a cat, domestic, I believe.  Had whiskers implanted. Dunno what happened.

I fail to understand why those who are confronted with an idea that they do not understand, fail to study up. Researching ideas is why we have computers. But we have somewhere around 24 Democrat presidential candidates spouting ideas that sound good, they…

Movie review: “Spotlight”

Why Evolution Is True

I’ve just seen the new movie “Spotlight,” about the Boston Globe‘s coverage of the Catholic child-rape scandal in their city, and how their stories shed light on not only pervasive priestly pedophilia, but its coverup by the Church hierarchy. Their reporting eventually not only led to the criminal conviction of several priests, but brought down Cardinal Law, the Archbishop of Boston (after resigning he was, as “punishment”, given a cushy sinecure in the Vatican). It also won the paper a well deserved Pulitzer Prize.

I’ve posted about this movie twice before, once with a preliminary and positive review by a reader, and another in which I discuss Frank Bruni’s high praise for the film in the New York Times and his criticism of the privileging of faith in America.
