More innocents die when we don’t have capital punishment

Tue, Jun 17, 2003

A couple of weeks ago, three New Hampshire prisoners, one a convicted murderer, escaped from prison. What if the murderer had murdered again? On whose hands would the victim’s blood have been? One of the most common, and surely the most persuasive, arguments against capital punishment is that the state may execute an innocent person. One...

Only a Palestinian civil war will bring peace

Tue, Jun 10, 2003

Like the proverbial broken record, some of us have been saying for years that only one thing can bring peace to the Middle East: a Palestinian civil war. It should now be as obvious as anything can be that this is the case. A significant percentage of Palestinians do not want peace with Israel; they want peace without an Israel. If these...

The legal system is now our enemy

Tue, Jun 3, 2003

I was raised to believe that law is the glory of decent society; that the rule of law is the sine qua non of civilization; that international law is the greatest protector of human rights; that lawyers should be coupled with doctors as an elite profession to which a young person can aspire; that making laws is the great work of legislatures; that...

Monkeys and atheists

Tue, May 27, 2003

Thomas Huxley (“Darwin’s bulldog”) is said to have come up with the most famous defense of the atheist belief that life was created by chance, not God. In a debate at Oxford, he is reported to have stated that if enough monkeys randomly pressed typewriter keys for a long enough time, sooner or later Psalm 23 would emerge. Not...

Women pretending to be men

Tue, May 20, 2003

With great enthusiasm, USA Today featured a front-page article in its “Life Section” on the allegedly booming industry of “bachelorette” parties. Mirroring bachelor parties, these parties feature male hunks stripping and performing lap dances on the bride-to-be and some of her friends. The article was accompanied by a...

My week at Stanford

Tue, May 13, 2003

I spent last week at college. And not just any college. Stanford University. And this is what I thought. If you wish to learn facts, the university can be a great place. If you wish to study the natural sciences, the university is a great place. But if you want to acquire wisdom or to become a mature adult, the university is usually an...

Burn families, barbecue chickens

Tue, May 6, 2003

It is of utmost importance to understand the roots of the latest project of the organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), “The Holocaust on your plate,” a campaign that morally equates killing chickens with the Holocaust. When you do, you will also understand the roots of the moral chaos of our age. How does a...

Homosexuality: An attempt at clarity

Tue, Apr 29, 2003

The homosexual is equal in God’s eyes to the heterosexual. Parents must love their children, including the child who is homosexual. At the same time, a homosexual child must understand a loving parent’s sadness over his or her inability to sexually love a person of the opposite sex. Society has the right and obligation to prefer...

Much talent, little wisdom

Tue, Apr 22, 2003

The first thing you have to do when hearing Hollywood stars make foolish comments is to avoid being surprised. As a rule, over the last few centuries, artists have been more likely to be morally confused than members of almost any other profession (except academia). Many, perhaps most, great artists are geniuses in one area and underdeveloped...

America the good

Tue, Apr 15, 2003

President George W. Bush often speaks about the “goodness” of America and about the “evil” of various world tyrannies. Is this language meaningful — or is it, as many critics both at home and abroad contend, empty and sanctimonious rhetoric? A strong case can be made that the very fact that an American president...
