Stoned Again, Naturally.

Found this in an archive from 2005. I have come to realize that some folks, in order to maintain a very narrow belief system, no longer allow themselves to evaluate other belief systems. In essence, other points of view dangerously threaten their fragile little world. That is, their own opinions seem like Universal Truths to […]

Police expect no charges in youth group diaper skit According to the article above, the Christian youth organization Young Life promotes paraphilias as an “icebreaker” at teen gatherings.

Post-modernism
