About / Rules

Patriactionary = Portmanteau of ‘patriarchal’ and ‘reactionary’.

Who we are

Christian men who reject modernity, feminism, and churchian weak-sauce.


Our blog, our rules.

Commenting at Patriactionary is a privilege, not a right.

You will not be allowed to comment here if:

  1. You use obvious shaming tactics
  2. You’re an obvious troll – whether a shrieking fembot, a flaming liberal, an axe-grinding, chip-on-your-shoulder anti-Christian / anti-religious atheist, or a bloodthirsty, foaming-at-the-mouth, rabid, warmongering neo-con, or any other kind of annoying troll with no business being here.  We welcome genuine debate, but not insulting, condescending, sneering comments or shrieking hate-filled remarks.
  3. You are a female pretending to be a male
  4. You annoy Will
  5. You bore Matthew
  6. You aggravate Ulysses / Dr. Eric Stratton
  7. You somehow manage to exasperate ElectricAngel enough, who is extraordinarily patient
  8. You sound fat
  9. You sound stupid / add nothing worthwhile to the discourse.

Things that annoy Will

  • Stupidly holding Protestantism responsible for all the problems of modernity – or likewise, blaming the Church of Rome for everything, or both, or all of Christianity. There’s enough blame to go around, for anyone who is fair-minded, and rational; we don’t want either Protestant, Roman Catholic, or Eastern Orthodox bigots, who hold unfair and jaundiced views of those of other traditions, conveniently blaming them for all ills – and definitely, we have no use for anti-Christian bigots. All you hyperpartisan, overly biased idiots can get your own blogs, and bloviate elsewhere; you won’t do it here.
  • Those who claim to be Reformed but support theonomists, theocrats, anti-2K pietists, etc. No Doug Wilson, Doug Phillips, Mark Driscoll, R.C. Sproul Jr., and similar shills welcome, nor people like the late Harold Camping, etc.; go bloviate on your own blogs about how the rest of the Reformed world, who don’t follow personality cults but rather belong to established churches, are somehow wrong in doing so. Not interested.
  • Seminariettes
  • “But the Greek says / the Hebrew says…” (i.e. arguments that the common, orthodox interpretation of what Scripture says are wrong, due to mistranslations / misunderstandings in preparing translations, twisting the original meaning, which ostensibly would have permitted certain heresies / immoral behaviour)
  • Irrational female-style argumentation tactics, e.g. “You’re wrong, because that’s not true of people I know / where I live…”
  • Spergy bitches ranting incoherently / inconsistently, without a discernable point to their rants.
  • Real personal insults and rudeness towards us bloghosts (as distinguished from good-natured, manly ribbing); condescending attitudes and excessive snarkiness towards us
  • “Guilt-by-association” objections to links: address the substance of what is being discussed, not the website hosting, or character traits of the person that are not relevant to the subject at hand. Esp. no whining, “But he’s / she’s / they’re raaaaaaaaaaaaaacccccccccciiiiiiiiiiiiiisssssssssssssttttttttttttt!”, and the like.
  • Telling us how we ought or ought not to run our site.
  • Poor spelling, punctuation, and the like.
  • Commenting for the first time on really, really old posts while (a) having nothing to say that hasn’t already been said by others, and/or (b) vehemently disagreeing in an insulting, attacking manner, troll-like – on a long-dead post. Do you really think you’re gonna get your comment approved? No, idiot.
  • Wanting to comment at our blog when you either (a) don’t allow any comments at your own blog (that’s your privilege, but don’t expect to be part of any conversation, other than through back-and-forth blog posts, at most) or (b) don’t allow dissenting comments, which is even less fair play: that means you want your voice heard at our blog, but won’t necessarily allow ours? You don’t get to comment here.
  • Misunderstanding / misrepresenting a position, and viewing it in the worst possible way.
  • People who wrongly argue that polygamy is consistent with New Testament Christianity; it is not.
  • Other things; the above list is by no means exhaustive. If you wish to comment, don’t annoy me.

Things that bore Matthew

  • Digression cascades
  • Females describing their persons without providing photographic evidence
  • Gossip

Things that aggravate Ulysses / Dr. Eric Stratton

  • Confusing realism and misogyny, in either direction. We are men, not Little Rascals
  • Forgetting you know only what you do not know
  • Being unaware that they are called skinny jeans for a reason

Things that exasperate ElectricAngel

  • Leading the little lambs to slaughter, like Milton’s Satan jealously looking on the Garden of Eden
  • Making poor arguments for a position he holds dear
  • Lazy Englishmen who use the myth of the Black Spaniard to whip up fear in the populace so as to keep their ill-gotten wealth during the “Reformation.” Say “Spanish Inquisition” to him and he will descend upon you with all the unimpeachable logic and rapier wit of St. Edmund Campion
  • People who use “where” when they mean “were,” and people who use “loose” when they mean lose.

N.B. If you tick us off sufficiently, your comments (assuming you’ve been allowed to comment here in the first place, your first comments not having been of such a kind that we’d banned you in the first place) will be replaced by ‘Baa!’ if you’re a man, and ‘Moo!’ if you’re a woman (these are the Baahammer and Moohammer, respectively), or even worse fates might befall you – other Hammers, you won’t want to be hit by.  Either follow our rules, or risk being banned, or having your comments creatively altered.  Thank you in advance.

    I found your blog through a circuitous route from Bonald’s blog, but was happy to find I’m on your blog roll. I’ll be adding you to my own; just wanted to say thanks and I wish there was some sort of a reference list for blogs like these because I’m always looking for them and I have a hard time finding them unless it’s by some labyrinthine route.

    Thanks Thomas! Will take a look.

    Though I’m not sure how we feel, collectively, about HBD; I can buy some of it, but not being an evolutionist, my beliefs will differ as to cause (i.e. I will credit God for human differences rather than natural selection).

  19. Svar

    February 22, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    Will, that’s just HBD Christian who likes to push his HBD lists on every site he comes across. I personally am open to HBD. Anyone can see that the races and ethnicities have discernible differences.

  20. Svar

    February 22, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    I do not believe in 6-day Creationism but I do believe in Intelligent Design and in microevolution. That being said, whenever the dip into HBD ventures too far into material reductionism, I reject it.

  21. Will S.

    February 22, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    I’m open to it, too, Svar, to a point. I don’t believe it’s the end all be all, though.

    Microevolution is a fact, observed many times over. We make use of it when we breed animals and plants, of course.

    Intelligent Design really strikes me as another term for creationism, minus the six days aspect. I believe in it, too, along with the six days of creation, roughly six millennia ago.

    “I’m open to it, too, Svar, to a point. I don’t believe it’s the end all be all, though.”

    Exactly. But there are always those trolls that like to push it even when it’s irrelevant to the topic at hand. That’s what I was referring to.

    “Microevolution is a fact, observed many times over. We make use of it when we breed animals and plants, of course.”

    Yes, and it(and the Tower of Babel) also explains the diversity of the human race. There are 6 main races(Caucasoid, Mongoloid, Negroid, Australoid, and Amerindian) and numerous subraces and ethnicities within each.

    “Intelligent Design really strikes me as another term for creationism, minus the six days aspect. I believe in it, too, along with the six days of creation, roughly six millennia ago.”

    That’s exactly what it is.

    The comment was deleted until Cane happened to make this little comment here. I find that interesting, don’t you Matthew?

  31. CL

    April 13, 2012 at 11:41 am

    I deleted the comment. After 7man and I conferred, we decided to let it stand or fall on its own merit. It was my error; 7man corrected it.

  32. canecaldo

    April 13, 2012 at 11:42 am

    Svar is correct–they deleted it first, and then reinstated it hours later. Also, my summary responses were banned. Two, to be precise. One to each of them. I have yet to be given a chance to be charitable.

    By the way, ‘mean-spirited’ is another way of saying “being angry at your brother without just cause”.

    I really don’t care if I’m banned forever. After my spat and subsequent leaving from TC (they didn’t ban or delete me, to their credit) I noticed that the quality of comments improved. It’s more important to win the battle than win the argument.

  33. Matthew

    April 13, 2012 at 11:59 am

    Issuing a challenge, then deleting the comments of people who respond is a fairly serious error.

  34. 7man

    April 13, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    No canecaldo, you are incorrect. “We” did not do this. You are making a mountain out of a molehill.

    Before we had discussed it, CL moved it to trash (not deleted). Once I became aware of that, I immediately restored into moderation status and addressed it. I corrected CL’s error. A man needs a bit of time to correct his woman. People are impatient and rush to judgment.

    And your subsequent comments were whiny and lacked meaningful citation, after you boasted, ”I can’t count the times they’ve written things that transgressed”. Do your homework rather than complaining, and back up your assertion with fact rather than emotions.

  35. Svar

    April 13, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    For those of you who STILL don’t get what happening here, let us consult Brett Stevens:

    “And of course, these stutterers are like leftists, everywhere: they make a career out of evoking sympathy in others. Poor things. Innocent victims. Needy and helpless. There, there… When really, a millimeter beneath the surface appearance, lurks a vicious, ravening monster that knows no mercy, no love, no forgiveness, no quarter, and absolutely no capacity for fun.”

    It’s interesting how I have to go to a Nietzschean nihilist conservative to be able to pinpoint the situation. Because, apparently when a Christian does it, he’s being “judgemental” and “uncharitable” and “driving people away from the Church”.

    From now on, let’s not call a spade a spade coz that’s what Jesus wouldn’t want us to do; it’s not like He’s ever called people out; hell no, He’s here to give you hugs and cuddles. Gays have equal rights to marry, a cohabiting couple is equal to a married one, abortion is fine, as is masturbation, fornication, and sodomy.

    From now on, the only sin is hurting the feelings of adulterers, sodomites, baby-killers, fornicators, and self-abusers. Because that’s what Jesus would want, m’kay.

    April 13, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    “No canecaldo, you are incorrect. “We” did not do this. You are making a mountain out of a molehill.”

    There was no way for any of us to know that, so the logical assumption would be that you just couldn’t take the heat.

    Thanks for clarifying though.

    Btw, I find it interesting that you said that you would let the situation cool via email and then you turn around and make an attention-whoring post about the situation. Is that how you let situations cool?

  37. 7man

    April 13, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    Well Svar, it did cool. Then when I posted again, the conflagration resumed and necessitated confrontation.

  38. Svar

    April 13, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    I was talking about the recent situation not the entire history.

    We can resolve this, but you’re going to have to atleast try not to profit from these spats.

      NOT the same people as the Presbyterian churches I prefer.

        Oh ok. I was trying to find the Reformed churches to point to that was uncompromised. But alas this is the top of the google search results. Google pulling crap it seems.

      • Will S.

        May 19, 2016 at 1:41 am

        Maybe, or maybe not; the PCUSA is the biggest single Presbyterian denomination in America, so it isn’t unreasonable that they top Google searches. That said, Google has been known, like Facebook, to manipulate searches / trends.

      • infowarrior1

        May 19, 2016 at 3:37 am

        Many Reformed churches seem to be compromised it looks like. So how is the PCA and OPC going to keep them from infiltrating as well?

      • Will S.

        May 19, 2016 at 10:52 am

        Are, not is; two different denominations.

        How? Actually, neither of those two denominations is free from compromise, they’re just not hopeless like the PCUSA. We will never be free of the tares amongst the wheat…

      The problem with evangelicalism is their emphasis on horizontality over verticality. This opens them up to be compromised. And they fall much quicker than those who are vertically focused.

      If someone isn’t in alignment with our creeds and confessions, if they deny anything in Scripture, they can and ought to be disciplined, and if they won’t repent and recant, ultimately excommunicated.

      • infowarrior1

        September 1, 2016 at 6:16 pm

        The reason mainline protestantism died is because of this lack of church discipline?

      • Will S.

        September 2, 2016 at 5:04 am

        Certainly that’s a factor, combined with the infestation of progressive values (no discipline to stop false teaching from entering and ultimately taking over. Read Gary North’s ‘Crossed Fingers’ for an excellent account of how progs took over the PC-USA and turned it from a confessing Reformed church into a mainline church).

        Have the OPC and PCA exercised this discipline recently to deal with feminist ideological infiltration and other liberalisms? I mean what i hate is the fact that people have to keep retreating to another church to escape it.

        We should be going on the offensive.

    Dear Will. Would you look into this?

    I recommended PCA and OPC but it appears that one of the commentators from it say its compromised as well.

    • Will S.

      October 7, 2016 at 10:37 pm

      TL;DR; can’t be arsed to get into the details.

      Look, IMO, many if not most OPCs are good; many PCAs also are; as with many denominations, one must judge individual churches / pastors on a case-by-case basis.

      I’ve made recommendations here before; I ain’t regurgitating what I’ve written already. If you want to share my thoughts with him, look up what I’ve written, and show him.

    I’m appalled at the almost total power the woke corporations seem to have now.
    I really don’t want my money going to companies that despise me and my family.
    What I would love to have is a web site or list of companies that are NOT woke.

    After the Gillette ad in early 2019 I switched to Schick. So did many others. A year later they’d lost a billion+ dollars.
    Is there any web site or database you could refer me (or others) to so we can direct our dollars accordingly, to buy other non-woke products or services???
