About Michael Kashmanian

My name is Michael Alexander Kelly Kashmanian. I am twenty-one years old, the oldest of ten children. I was homeschooled but have also attended traditional schools, and I am currently attending a local college. I can become very passionate about things I believe in, of which there are many, and I enjoy a good debate. I am an amateur musician, playing guitar and harmonica primarily in the style of blues. Besides this, I also enjoy shooting, keeping tabs on politics, woodcarving, drawing and sketching, building things, and working with machines. Besides writing about my beliefs and convictions, I also try my hand at lyrical poetry and fictional writing. I put a lot of energy into trying to correct misconceptions among well meaning Catholics and Christians in my age group, especially on issues of Life, economics, and social policy.

What kind of person could […]

Apocalypse How?

Making the Cut

 “If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is […]

Something to Believe In

One of my favorite movies, and a movie I recommend every young man see, is Secondhand Lions (written and directed by Tim McCanlies). Young Walt is dumped at his great uncle’s farm in Texas by his run around mother, something neither he nor they look forward to. As the movie progresses, Walt finds in his uncles, […]
