Global Sexual Revolution Angelico Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The core of the global cultural revolution is the deliberate confusion of sexual norms. It is the culmination of a metaphysical revolution as well--a shifting of the fundamental ground upon which we stand and build a culture, even a civilization. Instead of desire being subjected to natural, social, moral, and transcendent orders, the identity of man and woman is dissolved, and free rein given to the maximum fulfillment of polymorphous urges, with no ultimate purpose or meaning. Gabriele Kuby surveys gender ideology and LGBT demands, the devastating effects of pornography and sex-education, attacks on freedom of speech and religion, the corruption of language, and much more. From the movement's trailblazers to the post-Obergefell landscape, she documents in meticulous detail how the tentacles of a budding totalitarian regime are slowly gripping the world in an insidious stranglehold. Here on full display are the re-education techniques of the new permanent revolution, which has migrated from politics and economics to sex. Kuby's courageous work is a call to action for all well-meaning people to redouble their efforts to preserve freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and in particular the freedom of parents to educate their children according to their own beliefs, so that the family may endure as the foundation upon which any healthy society is built. "Mrs. Kuby is a brave warrior against ideologies that ultimately result in the destruction of man."--POPE BENEDICT XVI "As the carnage of untrammeled sexual license piles up in cultures that have embraced sexual revolutionary ideology, we need the kind of sober and thoughtful analysis Gabriele Kuby provides. Her work will help readers understand that false visions of freedom are highways to slavery, and that true freedom is to be found in self-mastery and virtue."--ROBERT P. GEORGE, author of Conscience and Its Enemies "Gabriele Kuby maps the topography of horror that sex unleashed from the moral order visits upon any society that allows it. She also offers a strong, much-needed dose of moral realism that offers a way out of an otherwise totalitarian result."--ROBERT R. REILLY, author of Making Gay Okay "Gabriele Kuby is a global treasure and a remarkably brave soul, speaking as she does from the very heart of European secularism. In this book, she gets to the heart of the matter: the grotesque distortion of the human person at the hands of the sexual left...."--AUSTIN RUSE, President, Center for Family & Human Rights "Gabriele Kuby is a contemporary Joan of Arc ... awakening the conscience of a generation. Writing with utter lucidity, in The Global Sexual Revolution she gives us a comprehensive understanding of the war for the future of mankind that has spread with astonishing speed throughout the world."--MICHAEL D. O'BRIEN, author of Elijah in Jerusalem "In The Global Sexual Revolution, Gabriele Kuby makes an eloquent and factual case for why all those concerned with liberty and rights of conscience must stand up--before it is too late--to those agendas that seek, even demand, to take away our freedom."--ALAN E. SEARS, President, Alliance Defending Freedom GABRIELE KUBY was a student of sociology at the Free University of Berlin in 1967, a pivotal year of upheaval and rebellion among students. She completed her Masters degree under the direction of Ralph Dahrendorf at the University of Konstanz, following which she worked as a translator and interpreter for twenty years. After her conversion to the Catholic faith in 1997 she became a successful author of books on spiritual and political issues and an international speaker.

Excerpt from Meditations for Monthly Retreats: For the Use of Religious After the mission is over and the parish has come back to every-day piety, there are always some good souls in trouble of conscience, and the pastor or ordinary confessor is slow to place the blame of the trouble on the preaching of the missionary. For has he not weekly experience of some of his flock taking in a wrong sense his own matter-of-fact Sunday announcements, which he has dinned into their ears in plain words and strong tones? And how can he now be surprised that doctrines of theology or spirituality have not been caught right by all, or that burning words of censure, which had to be spoken for the lax sinner, have been taken especially for themselves by the saints of over delicate conscience?

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Hailed by Toni Morrison as "required reading," a bold and personal literary exploration of America's racial history by "the single best writer on the subject of race in the United States" ( The New York Observer ) §§"This is your country, this is your world, this is your body, and you must find some way to live within the all of it."§§In a profound work that pivots from the biggest questions about American history and ideals to the most intimate concerns of a father for his son, Ta-Nehisi Coates offers a powerful new framework for understanding our nation's history and current crisis. Americans have built an empire on the idea of "race," a falsehood that damages us all but falls most heavily on the bodies of black women and men-bodies exploited through slavery and segregation, and, today, threatened, locked up, and murdered out of all proportion. What is it like to inhabit a black body and find a way to live within it? And how can we all honestly reckon with this fraught history and free ourselves from its burden?§§Between the World and Me is Ta-Nehisi Coates's attempt to answer these questions in a letter to his adolescent son. Coates shares with his son-and readers-the story of his awakening to the truth about his place in the world through a series of revelatory experiences, from Howard University to Civil War battlefields, from the South Side of Chicago to Paris, from his childhood home to the living rooms of mothers whose children's lives were taken as American plunder. Beautifully woven from personal narrative, reimagined history, and fresh, emotionally charged reportage, Between the World and Me clearly illuminates the past, bracingly confronts our present, and offers a transcendent vision for a way forward.§§Praise for Between the World and Me §§"I've been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates. The language of Between the World and Me, like Coates's journey, is visceral, eloquent, and beautifully redemptive. And its examination of the hazards and hopes of black male life is as profound as it is revelatory. This is required reading." -Toni Morrison§§"Ta-Nehisi Coates is the James Baldwin of our era, and this is his cri de coeur . A brilliant thinker at the top of his powers, he has distilled four hundred years of history and his own anguish and wisdom into a prayer for his beloved son and an invocation to the conscience of his country. Between the World and Me is an instant classic and a gift to us all." -Isabel Wilkerson, author of The Warmth of Other Suns §§"Immense, multifaceted . . . This is a poet's book, revealing the sensibility of a writer to whom words-exact words-matter. . . . As a meditation on race in America, haunted by the bodies of black men, women, and children, Coates's compelling, indeed stunning, work is rare in its power to make you want to slow down and read every word. This is a book that will be hailed as a classic of our time." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)§§"The powerful story of a father's past and a son's future . . . Coates offers this eloquent memoir as a letter to his teenage son, bearing witness to his own experiences and conveying passionate hopes for his son's life. . . . This moving, potent testament might have been titled Black Lives Matter ." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Victims and Values - 2859256836

Victims and Values Greenwood Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Victims and Values joins history and ethics, conducting a timely inquiry into conscience and politics. Mindful of William James's notion that ethics must be grounded in the historical situation, this book examines fundamental ambiquities, dichotomies, and contradictions that we experience about the worth of our own suffering and that of others. In particular, it analyzes how victims make a powerful claim upon contemporary conscience and politics. Amato distances himself equally from those who deny suffering all substantive meaning and those who fashionably transform it into self-righteous identities and political rhetorics and ideologies. Amato's hope is that each person will be able to take measure of the suffering of others, while still remaining able to value his own suffering. After distinguishing pain from suffering, Amato starts his work with the assumption that humanity must interpret and give meaning to its pains and sufferings. Amato examines the fundamental place of suffering, sacrifice, and victims in Greek and Christian cultures. Reaching the central object of his study, the modern mind, Amato shows how the reformist world view of the eighteenth century philosopher sought to reduce suffering to a matter of rational calculation and how the progressive views of the nineteenth century dedicated the most profound energies of society and state to the elimination of human suffering. Ironically, in the twentieth century this resulted in an increasingly hedonistic society that is preoccupied with suffering and its rights, victims and their claims. Historians, philosophers, political scientists, theologians, and lay people will all find a lively forum in Amato's work.

Our house is on fire! Who will answer the call? Is there One Idea that can save the world? Is there One Idea that can bring us all together - no matter what our faith, our politics, our culture - to do what is necessary and right in the face of the enormous challenges that confront us - environmentally, economically, socially and spiritually? Poet/philosopher/genealogist Laurence Overmire believes he has found an idea that can do just that. It is a very old idea, but we have not paid attention to its glaring ramifications. Will we change the way we think and the way we live or are we doomed to bring about the end of all that humankind has created and accomplished in the long course of our history on this planet?This book is a warning. But it is also a call for wisdom and compassion. The author presents us with a roadmap for how to bring about the healthy world that we seek. His overall message is stirring, uplifting and full of hope.This book will make you feel good about yourself, your neighbors, and this beautiful planet of which we all are a part. We can save the world. It's all up to us. Each one of us. As Overmire tells us, it's time to awaken to our best selves. And we haven't a moment to lose.PRAISE FOR THE ONE IDEA THAT SAVES THE WORLD:"This message of unity certainly reflects both the science around climate change and the movement we must build to challenge it!" ~ Bill McKibben, founder 350.org"A thoughtful commentary on the biggest issue of our day - the survival of humankind." ~ Thom Hartmann, author and host of the Thom Hartmann Program"This poet rightly yells Fire in our crowded house-the hour is late and the world needs rousing. Kudos for caring, daring, and acting on it. Firefighters needed!" ~ Raffi Cavoukian, singer, author, children's champion, ecology advocate, founder of Child Honouring"Overmire had me on page 12 when he wrote that this book was about wisdom - which translates into 'immediate personal action.' He has really created a teaching vehicle - a very worthy work." ~ Bishop George Packard"At a time when so many have surrendered to cynicism or despair, Overmire throws us a life ring... This book is fun and easy to read for a wide array of ages, making it a great conversation-starter. I can't wait to buy copies for my two sons!" ~ Rev. Kate Lore, Minister of Social Justice, First Unitarian Church of Portland, Oregon "Laurence Overmire's poignant and passionate book, The One Idea That Saves the World, and his urgent call to live that one idea, presents a powerful truth and a heartfelt vision of hope that just may galvanize the world to do what needs to be done to save itself." ~ World Business Academy"One Idea is a wise concept of how we, as individuals, can rise to the enormous challenges we face... This is a must read for everyone." ~ Adele Douglass, Founder/Executive Director, Humane Farm Animal Care"The future of a habitable planet requires a significant shift from the status quo. Inertia and time are unified against us. Laurence Overmire has written a direct, simple, and compelling call to conscience. I hope people hear it." ~ Aaron Viles, Gulf Restoration Network "The One Idea that Saves the World is an excellent delivery of a spirited message of how we as human beings can become conscious of living in balance and harmony - the TIME IS NOW." ~ Mona Polacca, member of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers"The One Idea is a simple, elegant and universally familiar concept that may well be the most p

Excerpt from Temperance: A Sermon Preached in Christ Church, Albany Street Some of the Christians of St. Paul's time were troubled in their conscience about the matter of food. One believeth that he may eat all things another, who is weak, eateth herbs, so he says in the early part of this 14th chapter, which deals with this matter of eating meat. If you turn to the I. Corinthians, and look at the 8th and loth chapters, you will find that there too St. Paul considers the question of eating certain meat. The questions among the Romans and Corin thians were not exactly the same, but in considering both of them St. Paul appealed to the same great principles. If we look at what St. Paul says in both these cases we shall see that the same great reasons weigh with him, we shall find tod in him the same earnestness, and the same fullness of dealing with the question, the same wish and power to estimate fairly all the different points in a controversy, to deal rightly with both sides, the same zeal and the same moderation. By considering what he says in these two cases, somewhat alike yet in some ways dissimilar, we get to the great principles which underlie the right treatment of other cases somewhat like these, and yet differing in many points from them. First let us turn to the Epistle to the Romans. St. Paul is dealing there with this case. There were some Christians who had scruples about eating meat. They thought that the distinctions made by the law of Moses between clean and unclean meats were still binding on Christians, and some of them apparently were so afraid of eating unclean meat in ignorance that they would eat no meat at all. There were other Christians who had no such scruples and doubts, and who believed that they might eat all things.

"There are few subjects on which the Lord's own people are more astray than on the subject of giving. They profess to take the Bible as their own rule of faith and practice, and yet in the matter of Christian finance, the vast majority have utterly ignored its plain teachings and have tried every substitute the carnal mind could devise; therefore it is no wonder that the majority of Christian enterprises in the world today are handicapped and crippled through the lack of funds. Is our giving to be regulated by sentiment and impulse, or by principle and conscience? That is only another way of asking, Does God leave us to the spirit of gratitude and generosity, or has He definitely specified His own mind and particularized what portion of His gifts to us are due to Him in return? Surely God has not left this important matter without fully making known His will!" Arthur Walkington Pink was an English Christian evangelist and Biblical scholar. Though born to Christian parents, prior to conversion he migrated into a Theosophical society, and quickly rose in prominence within their ranks. His conversion came from his father's patient admonitions from Scripture. It was the verse, Proverbs 14:12, 'there is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death,' which particularly struck his heart and compelled him to renounce Theosophy and follow Jesus.

The first Muslim woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, Shirin Ebadi has inspired millions around the globe through her work as a human rights lawyer defending women and children against a brutal regime in Iran. Now Ebadi tells her story of courage and defiance in the face of a government out to destroy her, her family, and her mission: to bring justice to the people and the country she loves.§§For years the Islamic Republic tried to intimidate Ebadi, but after Mahmoud Ahmadinejad rose to power in 2005, the censorship and persecution intensified. The government wiretapped Ebadi's phones, bugged her law firm, sent spies to follow her, harassed her colleagues, detained her daughter, and arrested her sister on trumped-up charges. It shut down her lectures, fired up mobs to attack her home, seized her offices, and nailed a death threat to her front door. Despite finding herself living under circumstances reminiscent of a spy novel, nothing could keep Ebadi from speaking out and standing up for human dignity.§§But it was not until she received a phone call from her distraught husband-and he made a shocking confession that would all but destroy her family-that she realized what the intelligence apparatus was capable of to silence its critics. The Iranian government would end up taking everything from Shirin Ebadi-her marriage, friends, and colleagues, her home, her legal career, even her Nobel Prize-but the one thing it could never steal was her spirit to fight for justice and a better future. This is the amazing, at times harrowing, simply astonishing story of a woman who would never give up, no matter the risks. Just as her words and deeds have inspired a nation, Until We Are Free will inspire you to find the courage to stand up for your beliefs.§§Advance praise for Until We Are Free §§"Shirin Ebadi is quite simply the most vital voice for freedom and human rights in Iran." -Reza Aslan, author of No god but God and Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth §§Praise for Shirin Ebadi's Iran Awakening §§"[A] moving portrait of a life lived in truth." -The New York Times Book Review §§"A riveting account of a brave, lonely struggle . . . reads like a police thriller, its drama heightened by Ebadi's determination to keep up the quotidian aspects of her family life." -The Washington Post Book World §§"A must-read . . . may be the most important book you could read this year." -Seattle Post-Intelligencer §§"As a testament to how a single, inspired voice can rise above the cacophony . . . the book should be required reading." -The Nation §§"Some of her admirers in Iran call her a woman of steel. Sure, the Iranian human rights champion also has a heart of gold. But it is Shirin Ebadi's unbending will that explains how she has become the conscience of the Islamic Republic." - Time §§"[Ebadi] has risked her freedom and her life to defend democracy, free speech, and the rule of law." -The Boston Globe §§From the Hardcover edition.

No one had started out with the idea of doing anything blameworthy, or even unkind; for that unpleasant experience with Mrs. Josiah Mint had made all our ladies more careful. Then why should one?

Question of German Guilt - 2869473014

Question of German Guilt BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Shortly after the Nazi government fell, a philosophy professor at Heidelberg University lectured on a subject that burned the consciousness and conscience of thinking Germans. Are the German people guilty?These lectures by Karl Jaspers, an outstanding European philosopher, attracted wide attention among German intellectuals and students; they seemed to offer a path to sanity and morality in a disordered world. Jaspers, a life-long liberal, attempted in this book to discuss rationally a problem that had thus far evoked only heat and fury. Neither an evasive apology nor a wholesome condemnation, his book distinguished between types of guilt and degrees of responsibility. He listed four categories of guilt: criminal guilt (the commitment of overt acts), political guilt (the degree of political acquiescence in the Nazi regime), moral guilt (a matter of private judgment among one's friends), and metaphysical guilt (a universally shared responsibility of those who chose to remain alive rather than die in protest against Nazi atrocities). Karl Jaspers (1883-1969) took his degree in medicine but soon became interested in psychiatry. He is the author of a standard work of psychopathology, as well as special studies on Strindberg, Van Gogh and Nietsche. After World War I he became Professor of Philosophy at Heidelberg, where he achieved fame as a brilliant teacher and an early exponent of existentialism. He was among the first to acquaint German readers with the works of Kierkegaard. Jaspers had to resign from his post in 1935. From the total isolation into which the Hitler regime forced him, Jaspers returned in 1945 to a position of central intellectual leadership of the younger liberal elements of Germany. In his first lecture in 1945, he forcefully reminded his audience of the fate of the German Jews. Jaspers's unblemished record as an anti-Nazi, as well as his sentient mind, have made him a rallying point center for those of his compatriots who wish to reconstruct a free and democratic Germany.

Equality, Freedom, and Religion Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Is religious freedom being curtailed in pursuit of equality, and the outlawing of discrimination? Is enough effort made to accommodate those motivated by a religious conscience? All rights matter but at times the right to put religious beliefs into practice increasingly takes second place in the law of different countries to the pursuit of other social priorities. The right to freedom of belief and to manifest belief is written into all human rights charters. In the United States religious freedom is sometimes seen as 'the first freedom'. Yet increasingly in many jurisdictions in Europe and North America, religious freedom can all too easily be 'trumped' by other rights. Roger Trigg looks at the assumptions that lie behind the subordination of religious liberty to other social concerns, especially the pursuit of equality. He gives examples from different Western countries of a steady erosion of freedom of religion. The protection of freedom of worship is often seen as sufficient, and religious practices are separated from the beliefs which inspire them. So far from religion in general, and Christianity in particular, providing a foundation for our beliefs in human dignity and human rights, religion is all too often seen as threat and a source of conflict, to be controlled at all costs. The challenge is whether any freedom can preserved for long, if the basic human right to freedom of religious belief and practice is dismissed as of little account, with no attempt to provide any reasonable accommodation. Given the central role of religion in human life, unnecessary limitations on its expression are attacks on human freedom itself.
