New Mexico Student Sues Over PC Oppression

A female New Mexico student is suing here professor and the University of New Mexico. It was suggested she not return to a class after she wrote a paper that criticized lesbians. The judge has ruled the case can proceed. The University had sought to get the suit dismissed.

The course was called “Images of (Wo)men: From Icons to Iconoclasts.” This student should have known that such as class was going to be a PC lovefest, but let’s hope the professor and the University get what’s coming to them.

(Technically the suit and judge are wrong to invoke the 1st Amendment because the incorporation doctrine is bogus, but assuming the modern interpretation…)

Identitarianism vs Neo-reaction

Here’s an interesting interview with Gregory Hood & Michael McGregor on the similarities and differences between identitarianism and neo-reaction.

Here’s some more info on both schools of thought.

Identitarianism:

F. Roger Devlin: “The Rectification of Names: Guillaume Faye’s Why We Fight

Georges Feltin-Tracol:  “Back to the Future: Guillaume Faye’s Archeofuturism

Neo-Reaction:

Nick Land:  Dark Enlightenment Series

Neo-reaction on Twitter.

Personally, I think that both schools of thought overlap and are more similar than either side wants to admit.

The PC Hunters Claim Another Scalp – This Time It’s Mark Driscoll…

next time it might be you.

I commented on the Mark Driscoll issue at the old site. I conceded that some of what he was accused of was intemperate and indecorous and unbecoming of a pastor. I also conceded that it is likely he does have a “domineering” leadership style. Why? Because you can’t run a huge organization without being somewhat domineering. At the time I speculated that there is probably an ideal size for a church, as there is likely an ideal size for a republic, and mega ain’t it. So mega churches will always lend themselves to domineering and/or charismatic leaders.

But that said, I was hoping for Mark Driscoll to keep his job because his underlying point, that men and women are different and thus have different roles, is a fact that is supported by Scripture, tradition and biology and has always been the position of the Church. It is the rise of political correctness and its ethic of equality as the highest of all possible goods that has brought this idea under fire, not a change in understanding of Scripture, tradition or biology.

Someone needs to be saying what Mark Driscoll was hounded out of a job for saying, they just need to say it in a more temperate and decorous manor. Driscoll’s resignation is a victory for the forces of political correctness. Somewhere evangelical turned liberal equalist Rachel Held Evens is dancing a happy jig, so anyone interested in upholding the traditional teachings of Scripture should see this as the defeat that it is whatever the flaws of Pastor Driscoll may be.

Here is the resignation announcement. It says he was not asked to resign, but I suspect for him to continue on would have been unworkable.

Here is an interesting question. How much of the real negative fallout that Mars Hill has felt from this controversy (vs. being called names in the national press and blogosphere by PC enforcers) is based on it being located in liberal Seattle? Would he have kept his job if Mars Hill was in Alabama for example?

Is Rand Paul “playing the game”?

There has been much talk about Rand Paul’s shenanigans recently:  from supporting open borders, to supporting amnesty, to often sounding like Al Sharpton, to endorsing Lindsey Graham, to, basically, sounding like the exact opposite of his father.  Now, some have said that Rand Paul has, in fact, become a full-fledged establishment Libertardian Inc. player.  Others maintain that this is mere posture and he’s just “playing the game”.  If he is just “playing the game,” to what end?  His own aggrandizement?

We have a new URL

If you haven’t noticed (you were probably directed here from the old URL – conservativetimes.org), CHT now has new URL:  http://conservativeheritagetimesblog.wordpress.com.

There were a number of reasons for this change, some of which were the constant malware / virus problems at the old URL.  We shouldn’t have these problems now.

A few pieces of housekeeping:

(1) If you were getting email notices of our posts, you will have to re-subscribe (see the “Follow Blog By Email” tab at the bottom of the right sidebar).

(2) All of our posts will now automatically be posted to Twitter, so make sure you’re following us: @ConservTimes

(3) Over the next week or two, we should be updating our archives here with the archives from the old site, although some of the more recent posts from the old site are probably irretrievable.
