The Theology of Pigasus the Immortal

My favorite song is Taylor Swift’s “Love Story”, as mentioned at the front page of this website. It is how I do politics. Now, in the context of religion and nonprofits I work with lots of Republicans. I should extoll what my political theology is. I became a liberal as a child and the contextContinue reading “The Theology of Pigasus the Immortal”

The Teleology That Doesn’t Exist

Living on the left, I am curious as to what world my people are fighting for. From my perspective, they want a hypermodern, cosmopolitian world where everyone is a platcel hikikimori. A platcel is a portmanteau of platonic incel and simply means someone without friends. And without religion or community and living in a ScandanavianContinue reading “The Teleology That Doesn’t Exist”

Conceptions of Hell

I don’t usually dive into theology on this blog but I will here and what could be more fun than the invisible world of magic people go to after they die? A perennial point of theological dispute is that of Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. Of the traditional and more stereotypical conceptions, I prefer Purgatory beforeContinue reading “Conceptions of Hell”

The Perennial and the Pundits of Christianity

What does Jesus think about abortion? The answer is like what most religion and secular ideology is, whatever you already believe, your tradition is on your side. To escape this, there must be a philosohical framework with which to answer. My answer is Jesus is not a pundit and Christianity is not a platform ofContinue reading “The Perennial and the Pundits of Christianity”

An Aesthetic Critique of Christian Nationalism

Firstly, style is dead in the West. We have lost the romantic prettiness of the vintage era, the hot chic of the mid-20th century, and more. Neither the tiara of a Victorian heiress nor the glamour of a golden age movie star does our era possess. It is not merely that the Kardashians are vain,Continue reading “An Aesthetic Critique of Christian Nationalism”

The Culture Shock They Never Mention

On September 7, 2021, I was working as a legal asistant and legislative aide for state legislator and in this capacity I recieved texts and a call from someone who was supposedly his client. He claimed to be a schizophrenic bipolar person in the Al Canon jail on a contraband phone. It soon devolved intoContinue reading “The Culture Shock They Never Mention”

Calvinism and New Atheism

It has often been argued that New Atheism is as fundamentalist as religion may be but I would narrow that I term the likes of Richard Dawkins to be a Calvinist. It is not merely that they have the passion of fundamentalists but also the logic of them. First off, their dismissal of all metaphoricalContinue reading “Calvinism and New Atheism”

Moral Courage in the Media

In the philosophical and social analyses of pop culture, the eggheads of my fellows on the left in academia who I vote the same way and attend the same protests as but afford almost zero intellectual respect to because they, typically, deserve zero intellectual respect, they will focus on things like feminism. That’s most ofContinue reading “Moral Courage in the Media”

The Life of Brian Versus The World

The Life of Brian was famously hated by members of my religion for its superificial mocking of it. The offense taken by Christians to the movie seemed stupid and shallow. They were offended by The Life of Brian overwhelmingly, not because of its message or its effect on the audience but because of its ostensibleContinue reading “The Life of Brian Versus The World”

Tactical Empathy: The First Rule in Diplomacy

John Oliver recently did a piece on the Law & Order franchise and how wrong it got everything. The biggest thing it got wrong was how you deal with humans when you need them to cooperate with an investigation. He showed many scenes of, especially on SVU, how the prosecutors and the police would righteouslyContinue reading “Tactical Empathy: The First Rule in Diplomacy”
