DENNIS PATRICK: WHERE HAS THE SUMMER GONE?

What happened to summer? Suddenly Memorial Day and the 4th of July seem so far away. Signs of summer’s passing are all around us.

Summer passed so quickly. Maybe it is the short summers on the northern plains that makes time seem to fly. Or, maybe the busyness in which we immerse ourselves that distracts us. So much to do; so little time. Rush, rush, rush.

There is a perennial contradiction. It is easy to love summer for its warmth and breezes but hate it for its heat and humidity. This, too, becomes a distraction from the passing of time. In the blink of an eye we soon trade the heat for the cold.

GARY EMINETH: ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS - AUGUST 9

 

No matter what is more consistent with one's "ancestry", the polka and sausage or the minuet and high tea, one thing is sure. The people on this boat were not expecting a handout or even a hand-up. They risked everything for an opportunity.

Although I'm not sure I'm ready to stand with the great Patrick Henry and cry, "Give me liberty or give me death", I will say with Ben Franklin, "Well gentleman, I say we all hang together or we will most certainly hang separately."

We have to stick together and Let Freedom Ring. Next on our itinerary is Boston. There we are hoping to get some inspiration and even information for our "journal".

JOSEPH SOBRAN: IS THE POPE SQUARE?

Griffin Internet Syndicate, August 5, 2003 – Speaking as a Catholic, I wish the Vatican would say nothing about same-sex “marriage.” It’s beneath its dignity to enter into debate with a sick joke, and when it does so it only allows progressive-minded fools to change the subject.

Some people have the ineradicable impression that Catholics regard the Pope as an absolute dictator who can change the moral rules at his own whim.

Such fools, some of them nominal Catholics, argue that the Church is a bunch of hypocritical old men nervously obsessed with sex and Jesus told us to be nice to each other and refusing to let homosexuals marry isn’t very nice because they don’t bother anyone and anyway what about all those pedophile priests so let the Pope mind his own business and look to his own house. You get the idea. Like, if the Church doesn’t enforce its own rules, those rules must be invalid.

DR. DAVID HOGSETTE: RELEVANCE OF THE 2009 MANHATTAN DECLARATION

In 2009, the Manhattan Declaration was drafted to rally traditional Christians to solidarity and to provide guidelines for proclaiming the truth of Christ, boldly and peacefully, in an unfriendly culture. In this article, Dr. David Hogsette revisits the Manhattan Declaration and argues: “The public square is a hostile environment of competing identity politics. However, not all identities are treated equally. Those adhering to Christian orthodoxy do not enjoy the same respect, dignity, tolerance, or acceptance as other identities, despite the constitutional guarantee of religious liberty.”

DR. MARK HENDRICK: THE “SUMMER OF LOVE” - A HALF-CENTURY LATER

For some people, 50 years ago was known as the Summer of Love. In this article, Dr. Mark Hendrickson reflects upon 1967 and writes, “Drugs, sex, and rock’n’roll is hardly a formula for generational excellence. Think of ‘the greatest generation’ that found the inner strength and character to prevail in the existential conflict of World War II: Would they have achieved such heroic heights had their priorities been to tune out the world and pursue ease and pleasure? Not a chance.”

DENNIS PATRICK: CONSULATION IN A CUP - COFFEE

Colombians grow it; Bedouins chew it. Africans hoe it; Americans brew it. Coffee, a third world child adopted by Americans, is without question a favorite American beverage. In my case, coffee and I have had a long love affair.

Imagine the despair a few years ago when some anxious pessimists declared caffeine a health hazard adding it to an ever-growing list of no-no’s.

Coffee isn’t the bugaboo some Chicken Littles made it out to be a few years ago. The only apparent danger posed by coffee is from some dolt who drops a cup of the hot stuff in their lap and then wants to sue.

Relax and enjoy a cup o’ joe!

JOSEPH SOBRAN: VIOLENT RELIGIONS

Recently our attention has been fixed on the most extreme Muslim reactions against the West, and we may choose to dismiss Islam as a “violent religion.” But this is a sort of optical illusion. We ignore, at our peril, the quiet revulsion felt by ordinary Muslims who don’t express their feelings with beheadings and car bombs. I could name a lot of American Christians and Jews who feel the same way.

DR. PAUL KENGOR: RONALD REAGAN AND KAROL WOJTYLA - FREEDOM FIGHTERS 1976

“It was a course that within just a few short years was about to change dramatically. The world would face a new president in the White House and a new pope at the Vatican.” In this article that first appeared at Stream.org, Dr. Paul Kengor looks at the summer of 1976 in America. A year where two future world leaders would set the stage for decades to come. Kengor details Cardinal Karol Wojtyła’s visit in August and the crisscrossing of the country by Republican presidential candidate Ronald Reagan.

DENNIS PATRICK: GROUP PUNISHMENT IS UNFAIR - FAIR PLAY IS BEST

The gist of the fairness principle as my Dad emphasized it went something like this. “If you cannot find the guilty party,” he stressed, “do not take out your frustration on the whole group. Do not punish the group for the errors of one or two bad apples. And, by all means, do not punish the group in hopes of catching the culprit. It isn’t right.”

A renewal of the principle of fair play is long overdue. Without it, we acquiesce to a general acceptance of institutionalized group punishment. At the hands of the federal government, that becomes worse than unfair.

Group punishment is not the American way.

In this article, Dr. Caleb Fuller details the “cobra effect”— government interventions which generate major unintended consequence—and how it may be unwise for the United States to imitate Europe in its comprehensive scheme to regulate digital privacy.

DR. JOSEPH HORTON: STATE’S GAMBLING GAMBIT - CREATING LOSERS

The state of Pennsylvania has a budget that is estimated to be about $2 billion short of what will be collected in taxes. One of the most talked about revenue solutions is to expand gambling. In this article, Dr. Joseph Horton examines the idea of increased gambling and argues “I do object to a government that seeks fiscal health not by promoting wealth creation, but by creating losers.”

CHRISTOPHER MANION: HUMANAE VITAE FORSAW THE CULTURE OF DEATH

DENNIS PATRICIK: SUMMER, SUNSHINE AND—SKIN CANCER

Cancer. This is a powerful word. The very mention of cancer raises concern and alarm. The emotional power of this single word conjures thoughts of deadly malignancies, interminable suffering and death.

Knowledge, too, is powerful. Knowing something about the type of cancer helps us deal with it rationally. This is particularly true of skin cancer. Unlike internal cancers, skin cancer can be touched and seen and, in doing so, the mystery of the unknown diminishes.

I speak from experience. My first bout with skin cancer culminated with surgery in 1977. I wish I knew then what I know now. I wish my physicians knew then what they know now.

RICHARD KOCUR: THE LIFE OF CHARLIE GARD: WHOSE DECISION IS IT ANYWAY?

Charlie Gard’s fight for life has moved people across the world. Yesterday, the parents of Charlie Gard announced that they will end a legal battle that sought treatment for their son outside of the United Kingdom. In this article, Richard D. Kocur asks, “How did it come to this?” Kocur argues that socialized healthcare and bureaucratic shot calling often remove treatment decisions from family members—in Charlie’s case, his parents.

Thus the reason we are not securing our borders is simple, and one of the oldest motivations among mankind – GREED. We have greed of Democrats for votes, Republicans for cheap labor and illegals for having what is ours without earning it or fighting for it in their own countries.

DR. GARY WELTON: MY HUMAN IDENTITY TRANSCENDS GENDER

Recently, there has been a lot of discussion in the media (and social media) about gender identity. In this article, Dr. Gary Welton looks at the psychology involved with the cultural concepts of masculinity and femininity and argues that past, as well as current, approaches are wrong. Welton writes, “Instead of physical surgery to attempt to change biological gender, we instead need to adjust our thinking about what it means to be masculine and feminine in our modern world.”

SELWYN DUKE: WIMBLEDON TENNIS - FEMINISTS PREACH EQUALITY WHILE ENJOYING INEQUALITY

Could you imagine lightweight boxers complaining they don’t get the money and exposure of the heavyweights, calling the different treatment “staturism”?

This is essentially the situation at the Wimbledon tennis championships this week, with, for example, Hannah Wilks at theGuardian writing, “A new analysis of matches scheduled on Centre and No 1 courts shows that Wimbledon organisers routinely favour male tennis players over their female peers.” She calls this “sexism” and “sex discrimination.”

Actually, it’s called marketing.

DR. LISA L. HOSAK: BUILDING RESILIENT YOUNG PEOPLE

Many researchers who study the development of young people have begun to think less about linear stages of child development and have focused more on the holistic context of the child—notably the nature of their relationships. In this article, Dr. Lisa L. Hosack examines what healthy relationships do for children and argues that a significant outcome is that of resiliency. Hosack writes, “While we may actually be unable to eliminate chronic stress in the lives of many children, we may be able to build their resiliency levels through high-quality relationships.”

SELWYN DUKE: TRUMP JR.’S EMAIL - TREASON? OKAY….

In fact, it’s hard to think of anything authentically American the Left doesn’t aim to destroy. Say what we will about President Trump’s style and ideology, he’s not a treasonist. Trump is putting America first.

The Left is trying to put America down.

Trump is accused of “colluding” with an enemy of America.

Our leftists are enemies of America.
