This morning I did my normal interwebs browsing, coffee in hand, second coffee ready to go; you know the drill. First stop was Vox Day and what do you know – he has a post on vaccines. What fortuitous timing.
And one doesn’t have to be “anti-vaccine” to question the medical community’s mantra that all vaccines are equally efficacious, safe, and necessary. Or to be aware of the reality of corporate profit motives, their historical indifference to consumer health, and regulatory capture.
At the bottom of the post was a little link marked vaccines, so I gave it a right good clicking and up came a whole bunch of posts that Vox has written on the subject, complete with loads of links to studies and the like. I shall keep that bookmarked.
Meanwhile, over at Dalrock’s blog, I read Step up so they don’t have to – part 2 with the increasingly uncomfortable sensation that my mouth was hanging open in disbelief.
So, I‟m thinking of a wife who is planning for that weekend. She’s got the option of either her husband, on Saturday, doing all the projects around the house so that he can watch the game on Sunday; or she can send him to the Stepping Up® Super Saturday event, down at the church, that’s happening in their community.
Remember yesterday when I posted that scene from The Big Short, and how I riffed on the theme that the guys still wanted to believe that the market wasn’t that stupid, despite all evidence to the contrary?
Well, this morning there I was with the amusing realization that I too had been holding on to some hope that the modern Church had not completely rolled over and prostituted itself to the great god of progressivism. I still had some hope, however small.
Well, that’s gone. I can no more relate to a man who meekly assents to a wife who plans out his entire weekend for him as if he were an 8 year old than I can relate to aliens on planet Woo-Haa. As for the fact that the Church teaches this behavior and marital balance as being normal and necessary, well that’s just completely off the rails. On this evidence I’m in disbelief that the divorce rates are as low as they are.
I thought I was questioning everything and then this morning I get my perspective shifted again. It’s pretty humbling.
