Fundamentalism and Isolation

Posted on January 13, 2010 at 6:27am 0 Comments

The Roman Catholic Church is still a powerful institution, but its influence and relative weight in the world have been steadily diminishing in the last 100 years or so. This is not strange if one considers that religion in general has lost much of its power in all advanced countries: separation of church and state, religious freedom and the spread of education and science have made people more critical, freethinking or skeptical.

Catholics seemed more resilient at first, but this was only… Continue

La familia no peligra, los privilegios sí

Con un cierto retraso, como es habitual, nos está llegando al sur de Europa el eco de lo que en los Estados Unidos se viene denominando “Culture Wars”, pero que aquí deberíamos tildar más castizamente de “Reacción” sin paliativos, puesto que no se trata de otra cosa cuando se convoca a los convencidos a una manifestación multitudinaria tras otra cuyo sentido es político, antidemocrático y antihistórico aunque se disfrace de religioso.



El pretexto es la “defensa de la familia”,… Continue

Folklore, símbolos y opresión

La sentencia del tribunal de Estrasburgo sobre el crucifijo en una escuela italiana está levantando ampollas en varios países, lo que demuestra que una verdadera secularización, incluso en esta Europa tan agnóstica, no se ha alcanzado aún. Son muy pocos los estados que, como Francia, tienen unas leyes claras de laicización, en vigor desde principios del siglo XX, pero incluso allí uno se topa con las resistencias hipócritas de parte de la sociedad, que repite argumentos religiosos malamente… Continue

Sexual perversions

There are still many people in the world who for religious or superstitious reasons maintain what we may call "strict sexual morals", and who consider "sinful" many practices to which they attach a label of "perversion". This idea still predominated with a spurious scientific appearance until the 70's of the past century, and it was so much so that commonly accepted sexual practices coincided almost perfectly with old religious commandments.

Joaquin, please consider joining my new group HERCULANEUM: A PLACE FOR MEN. Herculaneum is a group where men can discuss and explore the ideas, goals, demands, ethics, sexuality, and nature of manhood and masculinity. It is a place where we are free to be ourselves, and discuss the issues most important to our identities as men.

I have already started two discussions to get us going: How do we define manhood in the 21st century? and Rites of Passage: A Lost Ritual?.

This is a private group, and discussions can be viewed by members only. Membership is open to men only. Please check it out.
