The Origin and Foundation of Human Dignity

The Origin and Foundation of Human Dignity

 In modern thought one finds two types of answers to why human life is valuable; some claim the dignity of the person is earned by some human function or ability while others claim that human dignity is a gift given in a relationship. This is functionalism versus personalism.

WRF Board Chairman Rick Perrin Asks "Why Do People Hate the Jews?"

Visible hatred of the world against the Jews is once more on the rise.  Seventy years after humanity vowed “Never again!”, two generations after the full horrors of the Holocaust were laid bare, it is surging.  Most of us became aware of it when Muslim terrorists struck Jewish businesses in Paris late last year, but it has been growing over recent months.

WRF Board Chairman Rick Perrin on "The World Lurches Toward War"

WRF Board Chairman Rick Perrin on "The World Lurches Toward War"

“Why are the nations in an uproar?”  The psalmist asked this question three thousand years ago. (Psalm 2:1)  At the dawn of 2016, it continues to be a most relevant thought to ponder.  Saudi Arabia and Iran glare at each other with clenched fists and burning rage across the Persian Gulf.  A few days ago Saudi Arabia, which is a Sunni Muslim nation executed a leading Shiite cleric, Nimr Baqr al-Nimr, on charges of inciting terrorism and threatening the security of the Saudi kingdom.

WRF Member Thomas Johnson Asks About the "Lessons from Paris 2015: Clash of Civilizations or Battling Nihilisms?"

For about twenty years, because of important publications with similar titles from the pen of Samuel Huntington, it has been common to interpret international and cross cultural events in light of “The Clash of Civilizations” theory.
