God Is Law and Shirley Phelps-Roper Is His Lawyer

February 26, 2013


The materialist Ludwig Feuerbach explains it best in The Essence of Christianity: “Religion is the dream of the human mind.  But even in dreams we do not find ourselves in emptiness or in heaven, but on earth, in the realm of reality.”  Anathema Maranatha!  We should only like to add that in this realm of […]

Juan Cole Watch: Why is Prof. Cole so concerned about Jesus’ wife?

September 26, 2012


Last week, when the story came out about an interesting papyrus containing an ancient Coptic text mentioning Jesus’ wife, Prof. Juan Cole of the University of Michigan, naturally, felt the need to chime in on the topic via his lackluster blog, Informed Comment.  The post, entitled “The Gospel of Jesus’ Wife and Sacred History from […]

The Higgs Boson, or the God Particle: Why all this Theology amidst Science?

July 3, 2012


By Bruno Fournier Within the upcoming hours, scientists from CERN are expected to announce the discovery of the Higgs boson, for which they have long been searching at the Large Hadron Collider on the French-Swiss border.  We leave it to more qualified voices —  such as Prof. Jim al-Khalili, who recently spoke to the BBC […]

Conservative values evoke one-sided materialism, Tim Tebow’s theological trickery

January 14, 2012


By Frank W. Strauch Many people often make the mistake of asserting that Man is created in the image of God, but, in fact, it works the other way around.  Since the supersensual world of the Idea is nothing more than the reflection and externalization of the sensual world of Matter, then why does Tim […]

It is our suspicion […]

Wall Street Has Betrayed Everything Existing, Except Westboro Baptist Church

November 7, 2011


By Anthony Burton It is the most ancient and essential premise of patriarchy, according to the leading school of thought on the subject, that the first kings were fathers of families, from which it somehow follows that the first cause of the fall of Adam, or the original sin, was the desire for liberty.  Not […]

Confusion, Chaos, and the Theology of Occupy Wall Street

October 26, 2011


By Anthony Burton As anyone who has witnessed these ongoing “anti-greed” demonstrations firsthand probably already realizes, the underlying question preoccupying the minds of the Occupy Wall Street protestors for the last however many weeks has been largely theological: is the social production of wealth compatible with good divinity? After many, many hours of superficial meditation […]

They Know Not What They Do (Luke 23:34)

October 17, 2011


Occupy Wall Street says that it is the 99%, but, then again, this would hardly be the first time that the petite bourgeoisie claims to speak on behalf of the proletariat.  The editors of Selecting Stones support the protests, and especially their European counterparts, but we also insist on identifying the protest movement’s true characteristics, […]
