Racists oppose men from other tribes having sexual access to women of their tribe. Tolerant people make no negative judgment about men of other tribes having sexual access to women of their tribe. This dialectic presupposes the normalcy of fornication.

A few years back, I thought about making a bumper sticker that said KEEP ABORTION LEGAL, LET THE PAGANS KILL THEIR OWN BABIES. This line of thinking led me from conservative pro-lifeism to be anti-abortion but only half-heartedly pro-life. Contrary to Spencer, there is in fact a moral binary here; abortion is either good or evil, either permissible or impermissible according to the natural law. I am anti-abortion not because it psychologically devastates women, or because it's racist against blacks, or discriminatory against the retarded, or even because it's dysgenic for whites or Christians. I'm anti-abortion because it is intrinsically a grave offense against the natural law. It has no place in a society ordered to the laws of God.

If they wanted true equality on this point, feminists would be pushing for insurance to cover the equivalent of Viagra for women. But they aren't, so it seems modern feminism's really about promoting childlessness.
Why promote childlessness? In order to increase the power of women as a political interest group, freeing them from burdens imposed by nature to bear and raise children.
This power-seeking on the part of women is why many developed nations' fertility rates are below replacement level.
It's time to call feminism out for what it does: it puts the interests of women as a political class above the survival of the nations to which they belong. Demonstrably hostile to national survival, feminism is a disloyal outlook fit only for disloyal women.

"Methodological naturalism is the label for the required assumption of philosophical naturalism when working with the scientific method. Methodological naturalists limit their scientific research to the study of natural causes, because any attempts to define causal relationships with the supernatural are never fruitful, and result in the creation of scientific "dead ends" and God of the gaps-type hypotheses. To avoid these traps scientists assume that all causes are empirical and naturalistic; which means they can be measured, quantified and studied methodically.
"However, this assumption of naturalism need not extend beyond an assumption of methodology. This is what separates methodological naturalism from philosophical naturalism - the former is merely a tool and makes no truth claim; while the latter makes the philosophical - essentially atheistic - claim that only natural causes exist."
Can anyone doubt that the grand scientific theories simplified and promulgated in the mainstream discourse of our day are intended to form our understanding, not only of our physical surroundings, but of our self-understanding, and the courses of action we should take?
It cannot be doubted.
The grand theories of cosmology, evolution, climate change, and all the rest are narratives composed and arranged out of facts selected by the method of methodological naturalism.
What is more, all narratives must follow a certain logic. In our day, this logic is supplied by philosophical naturalism, i.e., materialistic atheism.
Therefore, the above quoted definition disingenuously separates method from philosophy.
However, the scientific method wasn't always practiced this way. In the past, many theistic scientists assumed a Creator and a creation designed to operate according to laws established by the Creator.
For the Christian, there is an additional source of true information found in special divine revelation--the Bible.
The Bible isn't a scientific textbook or naturalistic historical account. Yet, it presents us with true facts pertaining to history, natural phenomena, and the origins of the universe.
Before dismissing me as a wild-eyed biblical fundamentalist, let me ask a simple question:
What should have priority in the Christian mind--the Christian Creed or atheistic narratives arranged from facts selected by a method presupposing naturalism? In other words, is Theology the Queen of the Sciences or not?

Relevant here is Romans 15: 25-27:
Here, we see that even in the Church of God Gentile Christians have an abiding obligation to care for the physical needs of Jewish Christians. This means that even in the one new man Jew and Gentile identity is maintained to a degree.

Natural society is the association of human beings on the basis of kinship, i.e., natural affection for one’s blood. Such societies organically emerge as families produce offspring, multiply, and form alliances. The kernel of natural society is the nuclear family, the first human society, and the index of social health is the health of its families.
The ploughshare, the cutting edge of the plough, pierces and divides soil in order to plant seed for husbandry.
Prophets are individuals who arise on extraordinary occasions when the official priesthood has broken down and not fulfilling its basic functions. In the name of deity, prophets call for covenant renewal and restoration.
Today, moderns believe their societies have progressed beyond the need to be rooted in ties of kinship. They believe natural societies are a thing of the past, of humanity’s primitive childhood. They believe their modern technologies afford them the ability to transcend the limits of nature itself. They redefine the family apart from its biological and procreative basis. They even attempt to alter what it is to be male or female.
Temporarily, the modern project appeared to be successful. Increasing rates of mental illness, suicide, crime, illegitimacy, and non-fertility give the lie to this, however. In the long term, apart from the bonds of natural affection social cohesion cannot be maintained. To abolish fathers, kings, and priests is to abolish filial obedience, fraternal loyalty, and paternal love at every level of society. “A house divided against itself will not stand,” and a people without a heritage is no people. They will perish from the face of the earth.
