EVERYTHING BUT SPORTS: Tuesday linkfest

milton-stanley-column bylineOne of the saddest, most devastating and ironic collapses in our collapsing society is the pervasive cultural bias against men and boys. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you might want to read psychologist Helen Smith’s book, Men on Strike. I’m not really trying to advertise a book, but Dr. Smith’s writings at PJ Media and her erstwhile weblog certainly suggest she knows what she’s talking about on the subject.

In the right-now rush of the net, I’m a little behind on this one, but this article on Jorge Bergoglio’s skipping a papal concert is encouraging somehow. I don’t condone the many non-Christian trappings of Roman Catholicism, including calling any religious leader a “pope.” Still, it’s encouraging to see that the current occupant of that position seems not to have succumbed to the opulence and extravagance of religious power.

The title of Roger Simon’s article says it all: The Zimmerman Trial as Media Pornography.

This link is political but not partisan; the subject would be just as dangerous and wrong if Mark Steyn were writing about President Bush, President Perry or President Paul: Unconstitutional Monarchy.

This one is both religious and political: Burning Books and Children.

Thanks for visiting.
