Chapter 4: Natural law We now get to the section on “natural law” morality, which Feser begins by telling us that New Atheists and secularists hate “traditional morality”, by which he means homophobia, and insinuates that Richard Dawkins is, if not a pedophile, then at least an apologist for pedophilia. He starts by going back… Continue reading The Last Superstition: No Kinky Sex!

A lot of ink has been spilt lately about Arizona Senate Bill 1062 being a homophobic bill.

Remember the heady days of 2008, when Orson Scott Card wrote: How long before married people answer the dictators thus: Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy.
