If the President Couldn't Tell a Lie

Dennis Prager (DP): HPO: "Fracking -- which my administration has tirelessly worked against -- has made all this possible." Honest Dennis Prager(HDP): Obama in fact is a strong supporter of fracking. One of many issues with which we agree, but on which I fabricate a phony disagreement.

Prager's criticisms of Obama are getting increasingly petty. Obama has been president for six years, and it's becoming obvious that the grand, supposedly principled basis of Prager's opposition to Obama are just a bunch of bunk. So he's left with this nitpicking of speeches.

Islam Gets Special Treatment

only one person is brave enough to say the truth about Islam: Steve Emerson. ;-)
The U.S. right wing should name their own Pope. Of course he would have to be American because the rest of the world is just as left wing as Argentina. How about Pope Charles Koch?
it's the same thing he says about all liberals: their religion is leftism. If their religion is leftism, it can't be a real religion.

Pope Francis, the Climate and Leftism

So the Pope doesn't really count as Catholic, because he is from Latin America? Prager doesn't like when people respond to him with ridicule, but he makes it really hard not to.

No,this commandment is not about evil. If it was about evil, it would have said evil. Rather, it's about hypocrisy. It's about using God for one's own ends. For example, a political guy making partisan political points, and wrapping himself in God to give himself a little extra moral authority.

there's nothing "fixed" about the Ten Commandments. It's just a matter of rationalizing when we violate them. As societies or as individuals. As a society, that's a good thing, the fact that we have deviated from ancient laws. If we still had Bronze Age legal systems we would be ISIS.
Time for some clarity: has our justice system generally changed for the better since the days of the Old Testament? For example, would it be better if the penalty for adultery is death? Or if adultery is even considered a crime?

We Have a Moral Divide, Not a Racial One

Of course things aren't as clear-cut as Prager claims. Prager claims to care about objective truth, but he doesn't even come close to living up to that claim. I have heard him on his radio program over and over refuse to acknowledge perspectives other than his own very narrow one. For example black callers that challenge his views on race. The better they make their case, the angrier he gets. If you close your eyes and your ears to other perspectives, then guess what? Your own perspective looks pretty solid. You can tell yourself that that's "truth." Congratulations, you have successfully fooled yourself.

Poverty Causes Crime?

His paternal grandparents, the ones he cites here, were bootleggers actually. I've heard his father talk about it, and he has it in his memoirs. Prager is careful here in this column to specify "violent crime", which bootlegging certainly isn't.
