O tempora!
  • The mess we’ve made of marriage. Charley may be right that the first writer linked here was being tongue-in-cheek but too much of this is literally true now.
  • Nominally RC universities and ‘gender’ silliness. To announce that one’s gender can remain an open question — as an institution does by providing trans-friendly restrooms* — is an act of profound moral and intellectual defeatism. It amounts to saying that nothing important is knowable (whence nothing important is transmittable). Of course the people peddling that last bit don’t believe it themselves; they’re still living off Christianity’s capital regarding things like murder and ‘there are no absolutes’ they say absolutely.
