protest-pope-condomPainting the Catholic Church as “out of touch” is like shooting fish in a barrel, what with the funny hats and gilded churches. And nothing makes it easier than the Church’s stance against contraception.

Here’s the thing, though: the Catholic Church is the world’s biggest and oldest organization. It has buried all of the greatest empires known to man, from the Romans to the Soviets. It has establishments literally all over the world, touching every area of human endeavor. It’s given us some of the world’s greatest thinkers, from Saint Augustine on down to René Girard. When it does things, it usually has a good reason. Everyone has a right to disagree, but it’s not that they’re a bunch of crazy old white dudes who are stuck in the Middle Ages.

Eomer & Riders[Editor’s note: By the time of the War of the Ring, Théoden, King of the Rohan, was becoming weak with age. He was controlled by  Wormtongue, his chief advisor, (in the secret employ of Isengaard).  Rohan was being overrun by enemies. His adopted son Éomer  and soon to be Théoden’s heir, is banished by Wormtongue, in service to Isengaard’s corrupt ruler, Sauruman. Éomer, along with  riders loyal to him,  track and destroy the Uruk-hai, who are on their way to Sauuman with captives Merry & Pippin.] (more…)

Life must be honored first. Because without life there can’t be Liberty.

The yet unborn inherit their liberty from us.

Last December  liberty activists from Snohomish County gathered to form the Snohomish County charter of the Republican Liberty Caucus.

[This article is a response to a friend’s  Facebook  post describing his reasons for voting for the Governor against the President in the upcoming election, and  another friend’s  argument against his reasoning, who asked me to  back her up.]

I see three issues here: A moral issue as to oath-keeping, a moral issue as to blood-letting, and a practical issue. (more…)

The night before the precinct caucuses (2/12), Life of the Party held a Senate Candidate’s forum to “vet” the candidates’ positions on human life. The planned videographer didn’t make it and volunteers have been patching together disjointed scraps of amateur video from different memory cards. This clip is some good footage.

These are the answers to a central question and, despite general agreement supporting life and opposing abortion, astute activists will be able to discern significant differences in the candidate’s approaches. The Candidates who came, or sent representatives, were Paul Akers, Clint Didier, Art Coday, Rodney Rieger and Craig Williams. Sean Salazar, Chris Widener and Don Benton chose not to come and not to be represented. To be fair, Benton had only declared a few days earlier, but on the other hand, he is the only political professional in the crowd, presumably with a “posse” and funds,  and Akers, announcing simultaneously with Benton, managed to attend personally with the same lead time and responsibility for running several businesses.  Dave Reichert, reportedly,  is still in hiding, attempting to change his appearance without trading his cap.

There were some “fireworks” later on, but that’s another story.

Something to consider when you listen to Gary Johnson

Pro-lifers foolishly make the mistake of elevating the issue of abortion above all others. A candidate for office who claims to be pro-life can get a pass on just about anything else. Yet, someone can be pro-life and statist to the core, as many pro-lifers no doubt are. . . I submit to you that I would rather have someone in elective office who was indifferent to the abortion issue, yet was a strict constitutionalist and advocate of liberty and limited government, than the typical pro-life, red-state fascist.
