Why Akathleptos?

Why Akathleptos? Because it means Uncontainable. God is infinite. Hence, the whole universe cannot contain Him. The term also refers to the incomprehensibility of God. No man can know everything about God. We can know Him personally but not exhaustively, not even in Heaven.

Why Patmos? Because the church is increasingly marginalized and exiled from the culture.

Why Pen-Names? So the focus is on the words and not who wrote them. We prefer to let what we say stand on its own merit. There is precedent in church history for this - i.e., the elusive identity of Ambrosiaster who wrote in the 4th century A.D.

“Truth is so obscured nowadays, and lies so well established, that unless we love the truth we shall never recognize it." Blaise Pascal

When Egalitarians Get Their Way, Women Suffer

A series of court-martials is currently underway in the U.S. Navy. A number of sailors were involved in surreptitiously videoing female officers and female midshipmen while showering aboard the nuclear submarine USS Wyoming.

While tragic and inexcusable, the event was predictable for anyone with any common sense.

Submarines are all-voluntary for good reason: they have virtually no privacy and the crew is forced to live in very, very tight quarters for months on-end while submerged in a metal tube. In 2010, the Navy was forced to bow before the politically correct winds and decided to allow women to serve on submarines, admitting the first dozen female officers into the nuclear power training pipeline. The argument against women on submarines included the difficulty of accommodating them due to privacy concerns (no separate berthing or bathroom facilities without expensive retrofit) and radiation concerns (to the unborn child before you know you are pregnant).

Of course no senior Navy official who desired to keep his/her Navy career, raised the obvious elephant in the room - i.e., the inevitable fraternization when you seal young women in very, very tight quarters with young men with virtually no privacy for months on end. Prior to the forced integration of women into the submarine force by the politically-correct feminists, submarines crews were all-male and went for weeks and even months without even seeing a woman.

As our Egalitarian culture futilely and foolishly seeks to eliminate all differences (even physical) between the sexes, it is ironically creating the environment for women to be inevitably abused and mistreated.
