I will occasionally share here clusters of 3-10 pieces of content I find interesting, helpful to building up believers, or helpful to believers and secularists to help both understand secularism. Sharing content here does not mean I affirm everything being said in each article, but do believe they are helpful for provoking thought. I do take full responsibility for my commentary.
The New York Times: “A Confession of Liberal Intolerance”
Commentary: A progressive reflects on how progressives discriminate against conservatives.
The Gospel Coalition: “Five Principles of the New Sexual Morality”
Commentary: many Christians claim that secularism’s approval of homosexual practice will result also in an approval of pedophilia. According to this article, that is a straw man argument. In a contractual view of sexual ethics, which seems to be the view secularism is adopting, homosexual practice between consenting adults is OK whereas pedophilia is wrong.
Commentary: It is possible to be a rational professional inhabiting secularism and believe in demons and the supernatural.
First Things: “A Subjective Definition of ‘Death’ Would Unleash Great Evil”
Commentary: Radical self-autonomy denies the objective biological realities of male and female. Will radical self-autonomy go so far as to deny the objective realities of life and death? Could a man self-identify as “dead” so he could collect his own life-insurance policy?
The Federalist:“Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s ‘Rationalia’ Would Be A Terrible Country”
Commentary: scientism is a philosophy masquerading as “science.” All science rests on philosophical presuppositions. We are either self-aware, or unaware, of how philosophy and science interact with one another.
