Is Mormonism’s position against gay marriage hypocritical?

“The article goes on to say that the Church is attempting to soften its image on homosexuality and gender inequality.

It’s like the post-Reconstruction attitudes that many took toward African-Americans: “You are equal, but not as equal as we are. Now go sit in the balcony and keep your mouths shut!”’

Review of Evolution-Creationism Forum at UNCW

David Scott’s review of the recent forum between two UNCW scientists goes a little like this — “In all honesty, and to make an effort at constructive criticism, I found the forum both lacking and disappointing.

What we could learn from the Israeli Army – the psychic benefits of a draft and the push against it

“In my opinion, every American, both male and female, should be required to give two years of service to their country as a prerequisite to their right to vote or to participate in government entitlement programs. These two years could be in the military or in some other national service such as Americorps, the Peace Corps, or civil service jobs that clean up the environment, social service positions that mentor youths, or other worthwhile programs. No exceptions and no deferments except in extreme hardships.”

COMMENTARY: America’s turning point – guns or butter?

Tough talk from writer David Scott on the ethics of continuing a large military versus building up American infrastructure. “No one who understands foreign policy would ever support getting rid of a capable military. Neither would anyone who understands our national financial situation disagree that the Department of Defense needs to be reorganized, reprioritized, re-moralized, and put on a diet. Our country, flirting with bankruptcy, can no longer afford the luxury of a runaway military. Those days are over.”
