[I’ve said in earlier posts much the same that I will say in this post. However, I think it is a good idea to refresh the warnings contained herein from time to time. Doing so every year seems sensible to me, and so, assuming I keep this blog running, I intend to do just that.]
Everyone who reads this blog should be on notice that I have covered, and intend to cover, divisive and unsettling topics. If you cannot handle sensitive topics, if you cannot stomach reading things that are at odds with your worldview, this blog is most certainly not for you. Such topics will occupy much of this blog’s attention.
One theme, or subject, that I have chosen to focus on is the “true” nature of men and women, as compared to what general society teaches about the subject. Besides fascinating me, it is also a subject that I think is worth explaining and exploring in the present day. Much hardship, on the part of both men and women, has resulted from the ignorance which is now the norm.
A great deal has been forgotten over the years, and it has been eye-opening to realize the full extent of that loss. Bringing attention to what was lost or forgotten will be a significant part of my efforts here. Many of the writers of antiquity were especially mindful of human nature, and not inclined to whitewash it or cover it up with PC jargon. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t new things out there, waiting to be discovered, which were either never recorded or unavailable to those who came before. In many respects today’s society and culture is unique and unlike any that has gone before (this is not a good thing, by the way). It stands to reason, then, that we might be able to learn in ways that those before us couldn’t.
With all of that in mind, I want to emphasize that this journey will be a dark one. Many aspects of human nature are quite ugly. So, in the spirit of the times, consider this a “trigger warning.” Jesting aside, I don’t really believe in pulling punches or sugar coating things. So don’t be surprised if you find things on this blog that make you uncomfortable. And yes, this applies to both women and men. While most of the negative responses on this subject have been from women, more than a few men have retreated from it as well. They, after being exposed to the truth, found their ignorance far more comforting. No one should expect to find much comfort here.
As a Christian, this blog will have a strong Christian influence throughout. And since I’m Catholic, that particular Christian influence will also be present. At the same time, do not be surprised to see me criticizing much of what stands for Christianity and the Church these days. Nor should readers be surprised if I stand up for the Faith as God intended, and reject progressive notions of what it means to be a Christian. In fact, expect to find rejections and arguments against most of the trappings of the modern age. If you cannot abide any of that, then this blog is not for you.
Also, for the record, the presence of a blog in my blog-roll does not indicate I support all, or even most, of what is said or found there. Its presence means that I find some measure of worth in occasionally reading it. Sometimes the links that blogs provide are valuable in and of themselves. Also, just as Iron sharpens Iron, I find it helpful to read blogs with similar observations but different conclusions. Your mileage may very, naturally.
This blog will engage in dark delving in the days ahead. Expect to be uncomfortable. You have all been warned.
