The Troubled Patriot Update - March 2010

Its starting to be crunch time for me at college. This week is mid-term week and as such, I've been studying and working hard. As a result, my postings have come even slower, and I apologize for that. However, I am still trying to keep everyone informed.

An article I wrote which was published on American Thinker's blog was actually a paper assignment for my political science class. Of course, I waited on submitting it until after the professor received and graded the paper (100% btw). It was written, though, as a direct response to how the professor and text book are preaching that the Constitution is a "vague document," and how judges are "empowered" to legislate from the bench. Thankfully, my "knack" for writing has allowed me to vent my frustrations in a constructive way.

I've come across a couple issues where I have had to take an unpopular stand amongst my classmates. One of them happened earlier this week in one of my English classes. We were writing a summary on a certain essay that had to deal with a feminist's view of the sexuality of men. Portions of that essay were quite pornographic, in my opinion, and showed erotic pictures of male models. Well, the professor asked my opinion, and I spoke out about how I found the whole thing offensive. The liberals in the class really jumped on me over that, and the professor did his best to change my opinion. However I made it a point to say how I did not see an educational benefit in learning about the sexual practices of any culture.

Also, I find it interesting how the university system itself attempts to define morality beyond the scope of God. I must admit, most of the time I'm chuckling quietly to myself as they do this. They are turning in unending circles trying to justify themselves. Yet in all truth, they simply cannot come to an answer as they have no firm ground to stand upon when it comes to issues of "right and wrong."

Once more I apologize for the lack of postings as compared to my pre-school activity. However, I hope that the majority of what I do post is worth reading!

That's all for now. Time to head in and take a mid-term!
