Now that Barack Obama has decided to be for the Ground Zero mosque before being implicitly against it (perhaps), discussion about his faith has once again reached a fever pitch.
Robin Morgan, founder of the radical feminist group W.I.T.C.H., opined, “We can't destroy the inequities between men and women until we destroy marriage.” -Duke
Just as critics recoil at the supposed intellectual sloppiness of labeling the abusers homosexuals but will then most sloppily call them pedophiles, they will identify them as “Catholic” and as “priests” but not as homosexual. Why is this? Is it just a coincidence that every example here of selective specificity, sloppiness and hypocrisy serves to either protect the reputation of homosexuals or damage that of the Church? -- Selwyn Duke
The concept of Absolute Truth lies at the heart of Christianity, Judaism, Islam and philosophy. Why philosophy? Because, properly defined, philosophy is the search for Truth. Now, some — including many philosophy professors — would dispute this, but they are not only babies in philosophy but also have adopted the endeavor of a madman: searching while claiming there is nothing to find.
This is why C. S. Lewis said, “Sex is not messed up because it was put in the closet; it was put in the closet because it was messed up.” The Internet throws the closet of man open in a way it has never been — and never should be. And it’s no exaggeration to say that the demons released are destroying civilization. As British philosopher Edmund Burke warned, “It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters.” The young today are immersed in a virtual world in which coarseness, nastiness, decadence, perversion, superficiality, egoism and nihilism are the norm. They are instilled with moral relativism’s only guide, “If it feels good, do it,” and then their feelings are twisted in the worst possible way, through vile entertainment, so that what feels good is cultural poison. The result is that we are breeding barbarians wholly incapable of sustaining a healthy constitutional republic. -- Selwyn Duke
It is this, the lack of moral health care, that is our problem. To paraphrase Lincoln, the teaching in the schools today is the ideology of tomorrow. As Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov pointed out, once the “demoralization” is complete, you are “stuck with the degraded and deluded. You cannot change their minds. You have to change their hearts.
It was not the Church that sexualized society with Kinseyesque sex miseducation and prurient messages everywhere, in movies, shows, music and on the Internet. That was leftist academia, Hollywood and their brothers in porn. It was not the Church that expanded the First Amendment to include protection of obscene imagery. That was leftist judges. It was not the Church that spread moral relativism ...
But right and wrong aren't determined by popular will. Nor should the latter effect judges' rulings, they are supposed to be governed by the Constitution - Duke
  BY SELWYN DUKE Torture, pain, beheadings, the murder of children…. If God exists and is all good, how could He allow such suffering and evil? This is a common question, and a lament often an impediment to faith. It also was addressed recently on the Savage Nation radio show, where...
BY SELWYN DUKE With Venezuela spinning out of control, it’s said that U.S. officials fear a military coup. We ought to ask “Why?” Democracy on the brain can be a dangerous condition. George W. Bush pursued his unwise “nation-building” policies under the assumption that, as he put it, “democracies don’t go...
BY SELWYN DUKE With reports of dead bodies and excrement floating in the water, the threat of Zika and the Russian doping scandal, the Rio Olympics appears the Frankenstein of athletic events. And now Rio seems dopey in another way: owing to political correctness, a runner with, reportedly, no womb...
BY SELWYN DUKE Leave it to The Gay Lady to be a day late and a few brain cells short. The New York Times recently published an article by some journalism-school retread about the Cliven Bundy situation, a piece containing all the usual talking points about how the “racist”...
BY SELWYN DUKE With the San Francisco woman murdered by one of Barack Obama’s “new Americans,” we should ask: how much innocent blood will be spilled on the altar of the Left’s “fundamental transformation” of America? While callow and cowardly corporations are severing ties with Donald Trump because he dared...
BY SELWYN DUKE For decades liberals have lobbied against punishment and for rehabilitation. The argument was that a mugger or murderer was just a victim of his environment, someone caught in the crosshairs of bad nurturing and neighborhood. Accountability is unwarranted because the person bears no responsibility: he knew...
BY SELWYN DUKE Perhaps the first clue, or the ten thousandth, was when many Democrats opposed the reinsertion of God into their party’s platform in 2012 and booed the judgment that the measure to do so had passed. But now it’s official: The Democrats are the party of the Devil. Here’s...
BY SELWYN DUKE If I pointed out that involvement in every major 20th-century conflict the US was part of occurred on liberals’ watch, it might not be entirely fair. True, there was WWI under Wilson, WWII under FDR, Korea under Truman, and Vietnam under Kennedy and Johnson. But the...
BY SELWYN DUKE The big news out of San Francisco last week was that it would register another first: a city elementary school is going to switch to all “gender-neutral” bathrooms. The idea is, as the Daily Mail put it, to “accommodate young students who don’t fit into gender...
BY SELWYN DUKE “There was a time when you knew who the bad girls were,” someone close to me once said. “Now you know who the good girls are.” And I hear that all three of them are beside themselves over today’s state of affairs. “Lena Dunham: I Was Raped By...
BY SELWYN DUKE We are witnessing, I believe, a turning point in geopolitical history, one future historians may analyze as we have the Roman Empire’s fall. Vladimir Putin is making a move — and it’s not just against Ukraine. It may not be just a move against Eastern Europe....
BY SELWYN DUKE House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer certainly is a creative man. Asked about Barack Obama’s promise that everyone would be able to keep his health coverage if he liked it and the recent revelation that the Democrats knew all along that millions of Americans would lose their health...
