While my fiance and I in theory want a "traditional" wedding reception with dancing, we kind of have a mental block on what music we should play. We're also not sure we want to hire a DJ when music…Continue

Offended to attend a "fake" wedding?

Does it, or would it, offend you to be invited/attend a marriage ceremony that was not recognized by the civil government because a civil marriage ceremony had taken place earlier, or was scheduled…Continue

St. Thomas Aquinas on Women

Posted on November 14, 2014 at 2:49pm 0 Comments

D L quotes St. Thomas wildly out of context.  It's a quote from an objection in the Summa Theologica.  The Summa proceeds by posing a question which St. Thomas will answer.  He first raises objections to his planned answer.  Then he gives his answer, with a reasoned argument and quotes from authorities.  Finally, he responds to the objections.  This is a format used by many writers from that period.

D L's quote is from an objection, so it is a position that St. Thomas…

On Paquette and Trinity Western

Posted on October 8, 2014 at 12:07pm 0 Comments

I've probably been discriminated against because I attended very religious schools, but those people had the good sense not to say anything about it.  They just rejected my applications.  Obviously, if it's true the wilderness tour company rejected Paquette's application because she didn't meet their qualifications, they too should have just kept quiet.  I imagine Trinity Western graduates all have a story of a graduate program or job they suspect they were rejected for because they attended…

On Freely Choosing Chastity

Posted on August 22, 2013 at 2:00pm 8 Comments

I'm not sure what's meant by "freely choosing." I had opportunities for sex before I got married, and chose not to. My choice was based in my moral understanding, which was formed by my upbringing and my friends and family. But I didn't fear violence or financial repercussions from them if I fornicated.

Now that I'm married, I'm ambivalent about my choice. The consequences were not entirely positive physically, emotionally, or relationally. Nor are my moral principles so strong that…

Mental health and guns (Can't get into TGD)

Posted on December 17, 2012 at 2:43pm 0 Comments

I had something long on why mental health screenings for gun purchasers will never work, but I see TGD doesn't understand mental healthcare to begin with.

Though mental illnesses are more treatable than the most feared bodily illnesses, and kill just as many people, and certainly have more sufferers, they are handled differently and less by our "healthcare system."

What really gets my goat are the financial disincentives for seeking treatment. I have heard (pre-Obamacare)…

Way too much language, also.

Still, after an evening of thinking a bit on your advice to OP yesterday-can't get over the level of detachment in your statements.  He made no mention of his skills level.  Could he actually qualify for a job in tech?  Maybe you are overreaching-sounds like lost in a world of great intellectual postulating beyond any kind actual "tending your own garden.

Hi Rebekah, on the "safety" issue, TSA would be allowed broad discretion in looking for contraband. If traveling with the hypothetical gold chain, I can see them arguing that it is privileged, but still would have to be "documented" for Custom's purposes.
