Word has it there is a tip jar.

May 3, 2019

I just noticed that I missed a response yesterday by The Other McCain to my post Insta-Whores: Is money the real problem?

Other men, perhaps much better men than me, have fared far worse in their marriages, and as I am basically Calvinist in my theology, I must interpret the blessing bestowed on me as evidence of unmerited grace — not what I have deserved, but what it has pleased God to grant me, making manifest His mercy.

Readers may ponder this mystery, while I call attention to a reaction to Tuesday’s blog post, “Insta-Whores,” in which I talked about how social media is enabling prostitution. This prompted some commentary from “red-pill” blogger Dalrock:

[excerpt from my post]

You can read the whole thing, and Dalrock’s point is correct. Most Americans do expect their daughters to delay marriage and, consequentially, they at least tacitly endorse pre-marital sex (fornication). Even many self-professed Christians have adopted this attitude, deeming college education and a professional career (the usual reasons for postponing marriage) more valuable than virtue.

Having contemplated this problem, I have no one-size-fits-all solution to offer, except to say that we need to change our expectations, and warn our children against this amoral and materialistic view.

Sin happens — we cannot change human nature — but: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil.”

I share McCain’s sentiment of having been blessed far more than I deserve, and I don’t have a one size fits all solution to offer either.  Still, speaking the truth is an essential first step, and I’m very pleased to see McCain take this up.

According to the post he is on his way to Florida to cover the 21 Convention.  It will be interesting to see his take on it.  If you’d like to contribute to his travel expenses you can do so here.
