On Racism in America

In my previous post, I noted that the terms Racist and Racism are getting thrown around so much that they have have lost their meaning.  We have entire groups of people being labeled as racist simply for not falling all over themselves to declare themselves horrible people for the sins of their ancestors.  As I pointed out last time, none of this does anything to help blacks in America – in fact, it causes whites to be resentful because they are being maligned for things that they themselves have never done.  You might say that Southerners have been… racially...

Virtue Signaling Run Amuck

Virtue signalling is the conspicuous expression of moral values by an individual done primarily with the intent of enhancing that person’s standing within a social group. The term was first used in signalling theory, to describe any behavior that could be used to signal virtue – especially piety among the political or religious faithful.

The Pharisees, Slightly Misunderstood

It is popular in our modern day culture to beat up the Pharisees.  After all, Jesus Himself called them out for being hypocrites, and we are informed that there is nothing worse than being a hypocrite, right?  That’s one of the big reasons why people claim they don’t go to church.  That the Church is full of hypocrites who are oh so judgmental.  And we think that because Jesus ripped the Pharisees a new one in His Sermon on the Mount that there’s nothing we can learn from them.  But that’s not exactly what Jesus said.  Let’s quickly review...
