SPRING 2010 Q&A

May 9, 2010

Trindent Sub - USS Pennsylvania

with Jeff Ziegler

Q: Don’t you think people need to wake up and be shocked at what is happening to this country?

A: I admire many who “sound the alarm” but my question always remains unanswered, chiefly: “NOW WHAT?” The fact is no matter how shocking one may be. Americans with few exceptions are NOT SHOCKED! Being full of ire is no answer. The presupposition is that America is basically “Christian” in culture and need only awake! Yet: what was is certainly not now! Being awake is not enough unless you have something to fight with! That’s why we do what we do at SGI! Vision counts! Knowing where you are going, why you are going, and what to do when you get there is paramount to turning this nation to God!

Q: Why are you soft on Catholics?

A: First, being “soft” is a pretty subjective term! Secondly, I affirm Christian-Creedal Orthodoxy and hence I am not intrested in re-engaging a Reformation/ Counter-Reformation conflict. The war today is between “Confessional Orthodoxy” vs. Paganism and tyranny. Hence the mission, message, and methods of SGI! I suggest advancing 500 years or so and get in on the real fight!

Q: Why are so many People of Faith so negative about cultural and political Involvement?

A: There are a myriad of reasons. All false and all deleterious to the Kingdom of God! First: one will always do what one views. Most Christians do nothing for they believe there exists no mandate or vision for this world or they allow others (In the Humanistic left) to define the vision of what a Christian is supposed to be and how they are to act. ie; They see nothing and hence do nothing! Secondly: most Christians are introspective and yet never ask the questions “why am I here and what am I supposed to do ?” Others hate the Church so much that they believe it is destined to defeat in time and history, hence they act like it! Many more issues to discuss than space will allow, but again: The long-term mission of SGI and the rationale behind our articles and actions!

Q: So many who claim to be Christian, have such poor testimonies and practical behavior. Why?

A: Again a question that deserves more space than I can give. Briefly; it is not “major moral failures” that are at issue but a general slothful, disrespectful, and losing lifestyle that is usually in evidence. If the Christian is confronted about such behavior they are always ready with bad “made-up” theology, or victimization zeitgeist to excuse their lack of excellence. Christians want an excuse to not “play the game” of life all the way through! When they do play, they don’t play to win and they never finish! So thy break appointments without notice, are always late, cannot make a decision, will not give an answer, hate to hurt someone’s feelings, stand for nothing, fall for everything, act the coward, will not lead, seek cover and hide, and in general quit before they even try! They always have an excuse or a whine! Yet, that’s the material of this army! Grace and Mercy is needed if maturity is to be had! Put another way; “We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.” – C.S. Lewis

Q: Sound Off! While not “a question per se” I garner a host of Foreign Policy questions every week. So I will “sound off” below in sort of a rhetorical “shot gun”

A: Recently, much ballyhoo has been made about Puerto Rico becoming a state. Yet, the issue of statehood should be thought of elsewhere. First, the western provinces of Canada have expressed interest in being”American” and should be offered statehood. Who cares what Ottawa thinks! Open land, big mountains and lot’s of oil! Then expand South! That will also take care of “illegal immigration!” Take Mexico as envisioned by Robert E. Lee, John Pershing and others! Make it 3-4 states and again more OIL! In the Mid-East we know what mountain range Bin-Laden is calling home. Instead of sending tens of thousands more troops, unleash one (1) of those beautiful Trident submarines on the mountain range! That’s 24 missiles each having 10 – 1 megaton warheads; or 240 independent nuclear warheads! Now that would make a statement! Direct and to the point!

City Council Bill Threatens Maryland Pro-Life Advocacy

May 9, 2010
By Whitney Dotson
 
“Misleading” is the description City Council President Stephanie Rawlings-Blake recently used to slur the conduct of certain Baltimore Pregnancy Resource Centers. Presented before committees in October 2009 under the legal title Bill 09-0406, the proposed document will signify certain requirements and alterations for pro-life resources. Upon ratification in meeting the mayor’s approval, the potential bill will fine a minimum of $150.00 per day to any clinics that fail to publicly communicate the “limitations” of their services—mainly, the refusal to include referrals to abortionists and the dispensation of contraceptives. While notable organizations such as Planned Parenthood and the NARAL seemingly deem this action a crusade for truth, however, many Maryland citizens question their challengers’ ability to do so in consideration of the companies’ moral and Constitutional transgressions.

“Ethical management,” “reproductive health,” and “choice” are all terms regularly utilized by pro-abortion advocates. Within a span of mere years, however, Planned Parenthood alone has been faced with charges involving malpractice and illegal admissions. In Texas, institutions were forced to close when allegations revealed that induced abortions were being administered by uncertified professionals. Establishments elsewhere drew more attention when supposed minors were given abortion referrals without required parental consent. Concerning the matters of reproductive health and choice, the company has refused to integrate ultrasounds in counseling, and has encouraged anything but true reproduction. Of the many services explicitly stated on its website, the company presently equates reproductive health with the promotion of STD testing, abortion and birth control services, and HPV vaccinations as easily accessible and affordable. Apparently, “choice” to this company refers not to a decision between life and death, but upon the varying ways to enact murder. Ironic is the fact that the very union decrying the moral standing of departments has been so apparently secretive and contradictory itself!

The protection of Amendment One and briefest recognition of natural right as secured by Amendment Fourteen are sufficient in refuting the document in question. While often misunderstood and abused, the liberty commonly recognized as “freedom of speech” originated from a deep-seated desire to restrict governmental censorship where unnecessary. Only when a circumstance aroused the suspicion of being morally unsound or treasonous was regulation summoned. The right to “life” simply and generally acknowledged every man as commonly and innately entitled to protection under the Creator of all life (John 14:6). As the pro-life cause has reputably defended every duration of life and avoided serious illegalities, it may be safely concluded that Planned Parenthood, the NARAL, and similar organizations should reconsider the party truly in need of public posts and moral correction. Only then can a female, in reiterating Ms. Rawlings-Blake’s misapplied rhetoric, make an independent, “informed” decision which is Constitutionally and ethically compliant.
