I like how it is an "Orthodox" blog with a George Orwell quote headlining it.  Not Scripture, not the Fathers, but George Orwell.

The convictions of modern liberalism are numerous and growing: Abortion, homosexuality, hook-ups, same-sex marriage, gender confusion, man-made global warming, universal healthcare, income redistribution, and whatever is the next perversion or deceit that will strike at the heart of biblical truths.

I have been wracking my brain to figure out how universal healthcare is a perversion that strikes at the heart of biblical truths, but I for the life of me can't come up with anything.

Thanks for the laughs.

I mean, I didn't read the actual article, but the pullquotes were funny.

I wonder if he thinks the monastic fathers were all pinkos. After all, everyone who lived in their communes monasteries had to renounce their private property and share their goods in common. It's all a plot to introduce creeping socialism!

Anyhow, even if UHC would be bad policy it wouldn't be sinful.

Thus the function of the sexual organs of a man and a woman and their bio-chemical generating forces in glands and glandular secretions are ordained by nature to serve one particular purpose, the procreation of the human kind.

However, the human sexual apparatus appears to have been designed not only as the medium by which the necessary physical contact for the purpose of sex is affected, but as the generator as well and the center of a highly complex system of feelings which all together are known by the name eros, love between husband and wife.

Therefore, any and all uses of the human sex organs for purposes other than those ordained by creation, runs contrary to the nature of things as decreed by God...

The question is: Have we come a long way since 1984?

I want to know who wrote this. Presumably one of the reptilian humanoids from Nibiru, given the complete confusion and foreignness which human beings obviously pose. For a real insight into the sort of perspective we glimpse here, I suggest you guys watch "Under the Skin."

What is up with this site?

I don't know what to make of it. I'm surprised to see the sane Fr. Reardon on there, although it appears he just posts commentaries on Psalms and stuff.
