Additional Information

  • Biography
    I am a 25-year old political philosophy, grad student. I spent six-years in the desert of atheism, and I believe that my rekindled faith is stronger for it—perhaps a Hegelian transformation towards a/theism, if you will. I practice my Roman Catholic faith within a radical and postmodern tradition. I follow a Christus Victor understanding of atonement and the belief that the Gospel demands we replace the law and retributive justice with relational love and restorative justice.
  • Location

    People Who say the bible preaches hate against homosexuals

    Yes, but if you exclude transgender from the notion of bisexuality, then you muddy the waters a little too much. So, for example, there are plenty of heterosexual men who are attracted to transgender girls. I am firmly in the belief that bisexuality is the most abstract category for sexual orientation, and that all of the other categories are mere determinants of this category. You can derive everything from the binary play of gender that bisexuality encompasses. Pansexuality, as I understand it, is not properly a sexual orientation (which is based on gendered relations), so much as a sexual disposition which favors personality over body, an attraction to the personality over the sex of the body. That is, pansexuality is an identity which seeks to step outside of sexual orientation altogether; or at least, that is the only way the identity carries significant meaning.

    It is tough to talk to people

    I do not believe this is something that people on an online forum can help you with. This is a serious anxiety issue that has resulted from traumatic experiences that you are transferring to every new situation you encounter. You are preemptively striking out at them before they can strike out at you. If your school has counseling, I suggest making yourself available to it, because they should be able to help you better than anyone only can. While I know something about psychology and psychoanalysis, nothing I can give you would be able to match what real counseling can do for you.

    About Donald Trump

    "Apart from these physiological complications there is no way of judging the psychological effects of abortions – particularly when in most cases it is prompted, not because the child is unwanted (as we are told) but because the family feels it cannot afford the child, because of the rotten conditions they are struggling to live under. The liberals cry out about the “back street” abortionists – the butchers, but as a result of their campaigns, legal abortion has become legalized butchery!" — Abortion, Population Control, Genocide, Canadian Party of Labour

    The Role of Angels

    In Roman Catholicism, we pray to Archangels (Michael, Gabriel and Raphael) to intercede to God on our behalf and to assist us with the particular power that has been privileged to them. The most common angelic prayer is: St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness, and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray. And do you, O prince of the Heavenly Host, cast into hell, Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl through the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
