A pastor who won't preach on Hell, fire and damnation from the pulpit is a yellowbellied coward. We need some preachers once again with backbone, not a wishbone! God has been faithful. I wish I could influence some men of God to get worked up! I'm trying and praying brother. The Lord is still able. God deserves our best as Christians! I'm tired of pastors who dress in fancy new clothes and have that gleam in their eye, but they avoid preaching on anything offensive and the alters are always empty at invitation time. Of course the alters are empty, there is no preaching that produces repentance! The baptistry gets used once every 6 months. Soul-winning is not taught. There is no organized time for the church to go witnessing in public. There is no bus ministry.

Brother Roloff says, “There's only one way to speak with authority and that's to saturate your soul and your mind with the Word of God.” The reason why pastors today are dead is because they are listening to dead ministers instead of the authoritative Word of God. I'm not trying to pick on Bob Jones University, but their primary focus today is to educate students in the “Liberal Arts.” That's like a Christian automotive-repair school. We need Bible Colleges to train Christian workers. I'm sick and tired of these wet noodles, spineless preachers, who come in from the Jell-O seminary with their tapioca message of the power of positive thinking.

WELCOME TO WAKANDA: The Mass Initiation Of Black Folk Into Witchcraft

"As it is written: "God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that could not see and ears that could not hear, to this very day." [Romans 8:11]

" For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered." [Isaiah 29:10]

So how many of you ran out to get initiated into witchcraft through The Black Panther movie? You do know that was what this was about, right?

It was a mass initiation ceremony to take black Americans in particular away from your own biblical heroes and faith in Jesus Christ, and usher you into the myth-making world of fake-believe and occultism.

I wonder how many demons got accepted into people’s hearts that day?

Never seen anything like it! Black folks playing dress up, buying costumes, spending $20 a ticket (can't afford to donate or buy my ebooks though), and running around talking about Wakanda—some fake country made up out of thin air.

Side note: How you gon' know more about the made-up nation of Wakanda, yet know nothing about the real nations of Africa, like Rwanda??? You know all about Wakanda, yet nothing about Botswana, Burkin Faso, Chad, or Tanzania. If travel agencies start selling vacation packages to Wakanda right now, there'd be so many black folks lining up to go it would be embarrassing. But ask them when's the last time they booked a vacay to somewhere other than South Africa: and you'll hear nothing but crickets.

Black folks are in movie theaters holding invocation ceremonies and prayer circles while watching this mess, literally going all out to indulge in this feel-good fantasy created by the same white folks in Hollywood who've always painted you with the broad brush of racism and inferiority.

And weren't black people just protesting Hollywood a few years ago? Now they're suddenly your friends again because they gave you a fictional hero movie? Black folks sure are easy! I just hope this many black people practice their newfound fondness for supporting movies with majority black casts by supporting the next Spike Lee or Tyler Perry movie when they come out.

To date, Black Panther has made over $500,000,000 at the box office. That's half a BILLION DOLLARS! $200M of that was on opening weekend alone. To my knowledge neither Tyler, Spike nor any other black movie maker has ever gotten a $200 Million opening weekend movie release by black movie goers. As in never. But Marvel comics sure did. And last I checked, none of their board of directors represented the race of the people who just made them a whole lot richer.

Remember that the next time you hear black folks crying about how we need to support black businesses. Imagine what half a BILLION dollars could've done to turn around some of these jacked up under-performing black schools in urban areas.

Imagine how many urban communities could've been revamped and revitalized with that sort of investment! Shoot: we could've paid off all the debts of Morris Brown college and opened up two more HBCU's with that sort of money!

Instead, it went to a Hollywood movie owned by majority white investors. Really let that sink in.

And black folks have been some of the loudest critics of black churches not pouring enough money back into black communities. How is this blatant display of waste over a movie any different?

The problem with us is that we like to be where the crowd of other black people are going. If it's popular we want in. But that's just the problem: a lot of black folks are also going to Hell! And according to scripture it’s a very popular place to be. Will you follow the crowd of black folks there too?

My dear black people—especially my black Christians: your great enemy isn't the white man. It's not some 'ism' or ideology that exists in this world. Your greatest enemy is THE DEVIL—particularly the one you've allowed to exist in your own head. You need to exorcise the devil of ignorance and blind racial identity out of your mind, before it destroys you.

One last thing. Take a look at this thing in the image to this article. The cat-man costume. Looks a lot like a demon, does it not? Yea, I thought so too. Black cats have always been used by witches in conjunction with black magic to cast spells and bring harm onto the unsuspecting.

That alone should give you pause to think why this movie was pushed so hard on the black community by occult Hollywood. You've been placed under a direct spell and don't even know it!

Quit falling for the hype. Repent, and ask Christ to forgive you for being so silly and eager to be led astray that you willingly walked right into a witchcraft induction ceremony and got completely caught up in the moment. Ask the Lord to purge you and to give you more wisdom to see what the enemy is really up to. That way you won't be led away from Christ and so easily led into witchcraft and eternal damnation.

** We are entering a time of mass deception on a level not seen before. Many Christians will be led astray in this hour into eternal damnation and be lost due to identifying more with their flesh and the world than with the nature of Jesus Christ. Don't get caught up in the hype of pop culture. Satan is on a seek and destroy mission: and YOU are in his cross-hairs!

Download a copy of my ebook DEFEATING BLACK ANTICHRIST: Demolishing the Myth That Christianity is the Oppressor's Religion. This ebook will strengthen your faith in Jesus Christ and help you avoid the lies and deceptions that are rampant in the world today. And no, it's not on a discount or on any sale. Just like you purchased those tickets to go see the Black Panther movie at full price, you'll have to pay full price to undo the spell that mess more than likely placed on your mind.

Satan wants to separate you from your faith and confidence in Jesus Christ. DON'T LET HIM WIN. Defeat him in his plans by downloading and reading the ebook NOW. Click the button below.

Welcome to Powder Mountain – a utopian club for the millennial elite

When these young entrepreneurs bought a remote ski resort in Utah, they dreamed of an exclusive, socially conscious community. Is this the future, or Mt Olympus for Generation Me?

by Paul Lewis

Jeff Rosenthal is standing near the top of his snow-covered mountain wearing a fluffy jacket, fingerless gloves and ripped jeans. “It’s surreal, man!” he says, shivering as he surveys the landscape of newly laid roads and half-built homes. “That’s Ken Howery’s house, the co-founder of PayPal. Awesome house!”

He lists the other investors who are turning this remote Utah community into a crucible of “generational ideology, innovation and entrepreneurship”. Richard Branson will have a house here, and so will the world’s most powerful marketing executive, Martin Sorrell. The Hollywood producer Stacey Sher and the actor Sophia Bush will be their neighbours, as will Miguel McKelvey, a co-founder of WeWork, and the renowned technology investor and author of The 4-Hour Work Week, Tim Ferriss.

The audacious real estate project – branded Powder Mountain – is becoming a mecca for altruistically minded members of the global elite. “The goal will always remain the same,” says Elliott Bisnow, Rosenthal’s business partner: “To be a beacon of inspiration and a light in the world.”

Bisnow, Rosenthal and three friends, all entrepreneurs in their 30s, dreamed up the scheme after spending years running Summit, an exclusive gathering described by insiders as a “Davos for millennials”.

Applicants to Summit are screened and interviewed to ensure they display the correct “psychographic” (or mindset) for the events. It is pitched as an entertaining ideas festival, comparable to TED and Burning Man, featuring speakers such as Quentin Tarantino, Jane Fonda, Peter Thiel and Jeff Bezos. Guests pay $3,000-$8,000 (£2,200-£5,800) for access to three-day flagship events, hosted everywhere from beaches in Tulum, Mexico, to cruise ships in the Caribbean.

Having finessed the art of persuading rich people to pay to join these getaways, the founders convinced their friends to help them buy an entire mountain in Utah, complete with 10,000 acres of some of the best ski terrain in the US.

They bristle at the idea that they’re trying to build a high-altitude utopia for plutocrats, but then casually refer to a segment of their clientele as “the billionaire set” – and don’t hesitate to mention that their mountain happens to be located between towns named Eden and Paradise.

The beautiful surroundings and unique blend of people, Rosenthal believes, will create the “exponential opportunities of the future”. “I have this whole rap with Gertrude Stein, Katharine Graham, De’ Medici, Bauhaus. There’s this rich history of groups coming together, where the whole is more than the sum of the parts, right?” he says. “I think that’s what’s happening here.”

Such hype might seem detached from reality, but it is much in vogue among the technology sector’s new generation of millionaires and billionaires, who seem keen to distance themselves from the selfish excess of their predecessors from 1980s Wall Street. They show less interest in super-yachts or sports cars; instead they speak about spiritual enrichment, connections to nature and purpose. It is against this backdrop that countless Summit-like festivals, retreats and communities have emerged in and around California, promising to help wealthy clients find a better version of themselves.

Further Future, a gathering in the Nevada desert attended by the ex-Google CEO Eric Schmidt, which has been described as “Burning Man for the 1%”, promises a culture of “mindful optimism, wonder and exploration”. Scott Kriens, the chairman of the technology multinational Juniper Networks, recently opened a retreat for self-improvement and introspection in a redwood forest near Santa Cruz, California, recognising that, despite its great advances, the internet “did not help people connect to themselves”. And Esalen, an institute perched on a cliff in Big Sur that has been a magnet for a bohemian set searching for spiritual enlightenment for half a century, is now directly courting guilt-laden tech executives. “The CEOs, inside they’re hurting,” the director, Ben Tauber (a former Google product manager), recently said of his clients. “They wonder if they’re doing the right thing for humanity. These are questions we can only answer behind closed doors.”

Summit prides itself on its progressive “content”, with talks about global warming, inequality, racial divisions and the war in Syria, but there is a celebrity draw, with talks such as “Jessica Alba on defying expectations” and “Andre Agassi on scaling change”.

During the February weekend I attend (a smaller retreat on the mountain, which costs around $2,000), there are only three talks, each lasting an hour; the remaining three days are spent skiing, snowshoeing, eating and drinking, relaxing in yoga or spa sessions, or partying in crowded hot tubs.

For all its intellectual bravado, a big appeal of Summit has always been recreational. Food is provided by Michelin-starred chefs, and top musicians are flown in for dance parties; the Summit crowd contains a dedicated contingent of Burning Man aficionados, known as “Burners”, who are adept at adding fuel to the festivities. (Rick Glassman, a comedian flown from LA for a 10-minute set, prompts howls of laughter when he says Summit had taught him that “everyone does mushrooms”.)


The story of how Bisnow and his friends – Rosenthal, Ryan Begelman, Jeremy Schwartz and Brett Leve – came to occupy their bubble on a mountaintop in Utah has become something of a legend. It began in 2008, when Bisnow, with the boundless confidence of a 23-year-old businessman, cold-called entrepreneurs he admired and invited them on an all-expenses-paid trip to Utah. Bisnow shouldered the cost of the 19-strong gathering on his credit card, then repeated the trick with another get-together in Mexico, racking up $75,000 in debt. Bisnow and the others quickly coalesced a sort of “mutual aid society” for young, well-connected businessmen, which in the early days included the co-founders of Twitter and Facebook and the real-estate heiress Ivanka Trump.

Soon, Bisnow and his friends were running dozens of closed-door events dedicated to creating “positive impact” – and hosting their flagship conferences on cruise voyages that sailed from Miami to the Bahamas. Those events acquired a reputation as booze cruises for white, male tech bros, so a few years ago Summit decided it was time for a rebrand. They introduced cheaper tickets for women to improve the gender ratio, and abandoned the Caribbean for a more down-to-earth location: Los Angeles. “Not Santa Barbara. Not Beverly Hills,” Rosenthal says. “But downtown LA – where you’re literally in the throes of gentrification and homelessness.”

For years the team worked remotely in Amsterdam, Tel Aviv, New York, Miami and Barcelona. They would combine work with snowboarding in Montana and surfing in Nicaragua. But by late 2011, the friends were approaching 30 and starting to travel less. They were living and working out of a mansion in Malibu and, Rosenthal recalls, hosting “amazing dinners that became pretty culturally significant in LA at that time”.

t was around this time they heard from a Utah-based venture capitalist that Powder Mountain was for sale and hatched a plan to transform their considerable social capital into real estate.

The plan was enacted months later, after a gathering they hosted in Lake Tahoe. They chartered a Boeing 737 and flew about 75 of their wealthier patrons from northern California to a tiny airport in Utah’s Ogden Valley. From there, it was just a short drive to the top of Powder Mountain. They arrived in time for sunset, lit a bonfire in the snow and laid out their vision.

Each investor who helped them buy the mountain would receive a plot of land – and, assuming the plan worked, their money back at a future date. They bought the mountain for $40m in 2013, but it is only in recent months that the wooden shells of the first 26 properties have mushroomed out of the mountainside, along with roads, bridges and ski lifts.

Much to the frustration of some locals, machines have been drilling wells deep into the mountain in search of water. One day there will be 500 homes on the mountain, and a village with coffee shops, juice bars, restaurants, a sound studio and a five-star hotel.

Rosenthal takes me on a driving tour of the mountain, to explain how they plan to create a community that is different from exclusive resorts such as Aspen, Colorado. Restrictions prevent anyone from building a home larger than 4,500 sq ft, and residents must use vetted architects to ensure that their home is “subservient to the land” and in a style that has been called “heritage modernism”.

“None of the architecture should express taste or wealth,” Rosenthal says, nodding to the spot that will become a central promenade. “That is a very walkable main street – we will have soft Italian kerbs.”

I steer the conversation to the subject of how utterly detached from the real world elites seem to have become. “Elitism, the way I would define it, is obtainable,” he replies. “All that stands between you and being elite is your own investment in yourself.”

I tell Rosenthal that I’ve met many people in America who work as hard as him and his friends – harder, in fact – but struggle to make ends meet. He acknowledges that he’s benefited from considerable advantage, but insists we now live in an era in which “the internet is the great equaliser”.

“What are you doing to create the utility for yourself? Are you introducing people so they can collaborate?” he says. Struggling Americans, he adds, might want to “host a dinner. Invite 10 strangers. See what happens.”

Quote# 136329

The judge’s theatricals were supported by a weeping, ululating Greek Chorus of women that Nassar had molested. They’d spent four days sobbing their way through victim impact statements in the courtroom.

Once again for emphasis: Larry Nassar is a disgusting pervert, if we’re still allowed to say “pervert,” and I’d have sent him down for five to ten with a clear conscience. I just don’t agree that what he did was as sensationally horrible as the court, and my New York Post, were making it out to be.

I know I’m a geezer and out of touch, but in my generation, unless you were spectacularly ugly, you didn’t make it through childhood and adolescence without an occasional pervert coming on at you. It’s not an uncommon thing in the world, and I’m dubious about the claims of permanent mental distress.

That Greek chorus in the courtroom keening about their victimhood looked pretty healthy, when they removed their hankies from their eyes long enough for you to get a look at them.

But of course we are in a feminist moment, and keening about victimhood is what every red-blooded American girl is encouraged to do nowadays. I note that not only the judge but also the prosecuting attorneys were females; so was the judge in last month’s federal case.

Judge Aquilina of course did not bar males from the courtroom entirely, but you got the impression that she would have done so if she thought she could get away with it.

The judgette wrapped up her gloat-a-thon by jeering at Larry Nassar that, quote, “I’ve just signed your death warrant.” By that point I was mentally composing a petition to repeal the Nineteenth Amendment.

Quote# 137447

People stop homosexuals from marrying each other, or try to oppose homosexual practices, not because they have sin in their hearts, but because homosexuality is a sin and the people caught in it should not be encouraged to continue in it or allowed to lead others into it. Opposition to homosexuality is not because homosexuals are special or fabulous. In fact, being caught in the sin of homosexuality doesn't mean that you're automatically special or fabulous. That's just not logical. There are dullards and douchebags in every segment of society, including the gay one.
There's good reason why the bible forbids homosexuality. Just look at what's happened to society as the biblical moral restraints have been relaxed more and more. People are getting involved in ever more perverted sexual practices and general lawlessness, and it's bringing down the whole of society.
I've yet to read the links that purport to show how the bible allegedly doesn't teach that homosexuality is a sin, but I'm expecting a lot of scripture-twisting and logical fallacies and appeals to emotion and love. (yeah, like love should never be tough aye?)
One thing I wonder about, are all these gay christians happy to remain completely celibate until they've found and married their life partner? (And choose to remain married for life too of course.) Or, since they feel that homosexuality is biblically OK, it's therefore also OK to be sexually promiscuous and engage in fornication and adultery? Since the homosexual lifestyle is so much about hedonism, promiscuity, and fornication, I suspect it's the latter.

I've read the arguments for gay relationships and sure enough there's a bit of scripture twisting going on. Drawing rather a long bow by claiming gay relationships for David and Jonathan, and Ruth and Naomi, the Roman centurion's and his servant, and that the Ethiopian enuch was gay, NONE of which are clearly and unambiguously stated but that is merely the inference preferred by gay people because it suits them. And what is initially postulated as "might be" and "could be" later magically transmogrifies into cold hard fact, upon which the rest of the house of cards is built. Then they go on about the hebrew words for shrine prostitutes (both male and female) and imply that therefore Leviticus 18:22 is not talking about homosexual sex but about sex with shrine prostitutes. Trouble is, Leviticus 18:22 does not use the words for shrine prostitutes, so if it's meant to be speaking against sex with shrine prostitutes why doesn't it simply use the words for shrine prostitutes? Answer: Because it's not talking about shrine prostitutes but about men having sex with men, plain and simple.
One must also ask why the one book in the bible that deals almost exclusively with erotic love (Song of Songs) does not depict any relationship EXCEPT that between a man and a woman. If the bible is supposed to be pro-gay, why the glaring omission in Song of Songs?

So, no, I'm not convinced.
I'm horrified that people would interpret scripture so permissively that it ends up saying something totally different from what a straightforward reading of it suggests. It's like looking at a black dog and saying well because of X, Y, and Z we have to conclude that it's really a white dog. And then staking your eternal destiny on that. Yikes! I think it's wiser to step back from the line, not over it.

The “Read this” school of revolutionary thought

Is so far removed from what we actually need today that I sometimes wish rightists had been successful in suppressing all previous Leftist thought.

We should really burn every Leftist book, erase the pdfs, and purge the quotes. Every single idea we have taken from the past is an impediment to creating a better future.

If you want a revolution, speak to people in terms of their lives and conditions today and their plans for tomorrow.

Marriage makes someone your family. All the griping about how gays need marriage without even knowing what is, smdh


I mean your spouse is close family, even closer than your parents. That's what marriage means, that's the whole basis of the "hospital visits" people said were so important

Yeah I got that
The bringing in the gays part

I mean liberals who demanded so loudly for gay marriage, often don't even know what marriage is. Marriage is a lifelong commitment, a serious responsibility. Divorce is a perversion, a wrong, an evil. Making perversion the norm and responsibility the exception, as the OP advocates, stems from a complete absence of distinction

[From "The Deuce and a Half is now our official “Truck of Peace”"]

We have people EVERYWHERE. Take note.

A sergeant in the Tennessee State Guard has been reprimanded after engaging in a conversation on social media alluding to running over anti-fascist activists with a military cargo truck.


The Tennessee Department of Military confirmed that Casey Gillespie, who apparently took part in the public discussion with another man on Gillespie’s personal Facebook page, remains a sergeant in the volunteer arm of the department.

As he should be. Sgt. Gillespie was obviously just referring to Tennessee’s proposed legislation SB0944:

Tort Liability and Reform – As introduced, provides civil immunity for the driver of an automobile who injures a protester who is blocking traffic in a public right-of-way if the driver was exercising due care. – Amends TCA Title 19; Title 20; Title 29, Chapter 34; Title 54 and Title 55.

Currently, SB 944 is awaiting the approval of the Senate Judiciary Committee. It is the urgent wish of this author that the State Bill pass immediately before the next antifa rally.


It is the sincere wish of this author that all Tennessee State Guardsmen travel in Deuce and a Half Trucks at all times. You never know when antifa might try to, “block traffic in a public right-of-way.”

Antifa trans-ponies better stick to the sidewalks lol,

NYC is a zoo and it is, given the fact that there is a large NAM population mixed in with a White demographic.

All of us normal New Yorkers will come to grips that our city under the Giuliani and Bloomberg eras was only a status climbing phase, not that of a status de facto one.

A guy whom I encountered recently, who was from San Diego visiting the Big Apple for a month, told me that NYC is an overpriced dump, with large pockets of mediocrity at best, and larger pockets of dysfunctionality, as he was referring to Manhattan and the NAM areas surrounding it.

The only 2 SWPL friendly cities, free from liberal perversion are San Diego and Minneapolis.

TUJ (The Undiscovered Jew) will probably change his tune about our town, when more NAM problems begin to surface, making NYC a less desirable place to live, all thanks to Bill de Blasio.

How about SWPLs settling in neighboring Indianapolis, which is a basically the prole version of the Twin Cities?

There aren’t many desirable areas left in America; you have to put up with bad weather, proles or NAMs, and in the big liberal cities, a dose of everything that makes your day.

i’m a Youth Worker, I’m a Paedophile
The idea of a paedophile working with children is, perhaps understandably, pretty controversial. This is the story of how I realised my attraction, learnt to live with it and why I’m going to keep working with kids.
I grew up in a coastal town in the UK with two very loving parents and my two younger siblings. I never had many friends and I was bullied a lot, but every week I went to a youth group. I always felt welcomed there. It gave me a safe environment in which to learn, grow and develop as a person, especially in my self confidence. My time there influenced me as a person more than anything else.

I’d already decided by age 10 that I wanted to give back and volunteer there as an adult. I took up a volunteer role when I turned 14 and it’s the best decision I ever made. Sure it’s a lot of work, sometimes it’s like a full time job and it’s only voluntary, but now I get to help children to grow and develop. I couldn’t ask for more than that.

Shortly after starting in my volunteer position I realised I was a paedophile.

My sexuality developed pretty normally at first. I started to notice other boys my age when I was 8. Around 11 years old I figured I was gay. Fortunately at the time public attitudes toward homosexuality were changing pretty quickly and my close family was pretty openly accepting of gay people, so I was able to accept myself relatively easily.

But a year later I started to notice something was up. I was still attracted to boys six?—?or sometimes more?—?years younger than me. Why? It didn’t make any sense to me. Fortunately I was still attracted to enough of my peers that I could ignore it. So that’s what I did for two more years.

It wasn’t until I was 14 that I really started to realise the nature of my sexuality. I’d been getting older, but the boys I was attracted to hadn’t got older with me. In fact by this point all the boys I was attracted to were younger than me. I couldn’t ignore it anymore, I had to start accepting that this was the way I am.

To this day my attractions haven’t changed, I’m still attracted to boys from 4–13. I had no choice in the matter, I was born this way, but I did choose never to act on it and never to harm a child.

I was always a pretty scientifically minded kid. When I realised I was gay I asked myself why I was that way, what it was that made me different. Asking those questions it was pretty obvious to me that my sexuality was an unchosen and unchangeable part of myself. If it can’t be changed and it isn’t hurting anyone then I should just accept it and make the best of my situation.

I went through a very similar thought process when I realised I was a paedophile, so accepting it was pretty easy for me once I stopped trying to deny it. As long as I never hurt anyone what was the problem?

But there was a problem. My only knowledge of paedophilia was based on what society had always told me. Society was constantly telling me that I was doomed to be a monster. I knew I wasn’t a monster; I didn’t want to hurt a child and I knew I never would.

I went online to see if I could talk to others like me. Unfortunately the only other paedophiles I could find were pro-contacts, people that believe children can consent. I knew they were wrong, I’d heard about the damage CSA caused, I didn’t want to be like them and I didn’t want to associate with them, but I was bullied, depressed, suicidal, had no friends and desperately wanted someone to talk to about my attraction. So I talked to them. For many years they tried to push their beliefs onto me, but fortunately I never believed it.

I’d be lying if I said I was never tempted by them though. The idea that it’s okay to act on your attractions and that it’s society that causes the harm can be quite appealing. Especially to a young, depressed, suicidal teenager. Fortunately I always knew that what they were saying was wrong; I couldn’t ignore what I knew to be true: CSA causes devastating lifelong harm.

There was always the fear that someone would find out. What if someone did? I’d be hated by everyone, not even my family would accept me. I’d seen plenty of news stories about what people do to paedophiles. Harass them, beat them, even burn them alive just on suspicion of being a paedophile. If someone found out my life could be in danger. I had to keep this hidden from everyone in my real life. I couldn’t risk losing everything if someone found out. Even now, no one in my real life knows.

One day, early this year, I came across an article about people who called themselves “virtuous paedophiles”. This was a group of people like me that were paedophiles but were against all sexual contact with children. I started doing some reading and after a couple of weeks decided to join VirPed. I’d finally found a community that understood my attractions and shared my views. It was quite a relief; if only I had found them when I was 14.

Turning this into something positive
I’ve accepted my attractions and I know I will never harm a child, but now I’m in a position to help others. I’ve now joined a number of online communities for non-offending and anti-contact Minor Attracted People (MAPs), to help people trying to come to terms with their attractions, to show them that they aren’t monsters.

The hate, death threats and suicide bait non-offending MAPs see every day is staggering and sickening. Young teenagers are seeing those messages, internalising the belief that they are monsters; sometimes the hate pushes them over the edge. They often either kill themselves or get indoctrinated by pro-contacts which can lead to them being abused themselves, abusing kids or viewing child pornography. I want to show them that there is another way, before they get indoctrinated by pro-contacts, or give in to the hate.

Hopefully I can educate a few people along the way too and help to reduce the stigma surrounding paedophilia. When you are constantly told that you are destined to hurt a child it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Contrary to popular belief, helping paedophiles accept themselves is helping keep children safe from abuse. The current stigma just forces paedophiles to hide and prevents them from seeking help if they need it, just increasing the risk they might offend. Demonizing paedophiles might make you feel good, but it’s not helping anyone.

Should I still work with kids?
Most people would say that a paedophile should never be around kids because we are just looking for opportunities to abuse them. That’s completely false. I’ve been working with kids since before I even realised I was a paedophile. I do it because I enjoy it.
I have no ulterior motives. I know that my main job is to protect the children in my care and keep them safe; that is what I do. The absolute last thing I want is for a child to be harmed.

Being a paedophile doesn’t mean I lack the normal, protective instincts people have towards children. This is a very common misconception, but if anything, my protective instincts towards children are stronger than most people’s. I find I care more about them and I’m more interested in their well-being.

I love kids, I love working with kids, I’m very good at what I do, I do it because I want what is best for them and I want them to become the best people they can be.

If you do not believe men are drawn to look at seductive and alluring women, start watching their eyes in the presence of such women. A question that begs to be asked is, “Why would any woman who professes to know Christ as her Saviour dress in such a way as to be seductive and alluring? She may protest her clothing covers her body and the hem is below her knee; but does it highlight or accentuate parts of her body that only ought to be seen by her husband? Slit skirts are specifically designed to tease a man’s eyes and appeal to his lower nature; tight, form-fitting designs shamelessly publicize body parts and contours that ought to be private; clinging or translucent materials also are specifically designed to be provocative and revealing. If a sister is honestly unaware of how her dress is defrauding every man who views her, she ought to listen to a godly, older woman (Titus 2:3) in the flock, or the Pastor’s wife concerning her dress. But from what most women tell me, this type of seductive fashion is usually not accidental or ignorant. How tragic! Many, like Tamar, set out to deliberately catch the carnal eyes of men and tempt them to wrong desires even though they could technically say their bodies are “covered.”

There have been historical examples of polygamy but that doesn't make it a true, committed, intimate relationship between a man and a women. The marriage ideal is a total commitment to the opposite sex spouse. That is impossible with...... say six spouses.
My point is that once you open hell's gate by condoning homosexual marriage how can you then limit any other bizarre preferred relationship. No I haven't lost, it is you that has lost by condoning unnatural, unhealthy, and yes sinful sex acts.
Honestly this topic is becoming toxic and boring. I will never be convinced a subject as 'dark' as homosexual sex is 'light'. I have had literally scores of replies, mostly negative, but far far more 'thumbs' up in number, indicating there are vast numbers that hold exactly the same position as I yet are not as vocal, as politically terroristic as the homosexual community.

The left is a cult that can only survive by cutting off information.

I was reading an askreddit thread about people who have left a cult "What was your oh**** moment?" If you go read that thread over there you will see one thing in common in all the cults. You are not allowed to think differently and to stop you from thinking differently they shut off all information from the outside. The left does exactly this. They are trying to silence conservatives to keep information away from their followers in the cult. If you think any unapproved thoughts you will be shunned from the group.

The left is a cult.

Edit: I went to sleep and came back. This post blew up. I am glad people see what the left really is. Also I saw a comment about how it is ironic to post this in a sub that censors leftists. What a ridiculous contradiction. We are on a completely leftist platform that censors right leaning subs, has special rules for our sub only, and removes gun subreddits. We are literally in the belly of the beast and you cult members want to come in to every single thread and try to brainwash us with your cult crap. Sorry but we are turning away the door knockers. We are here to try and save the people you are brainwashing. We are trying to pull people out of your cult. No we don't need to hear your 5000th anti-Trump post for the day here. You have a thousands subs to discuss that on. We have one. You have even taken over conservative subs in the past. If you want to argue your point of view go to askthe_donald. We have a dedicated sub for discussion.

Fun fact: Democrats also are far more likely to have mental health issues.

Fun fact: People in cults also are far more likely to have mental health issues.


Thus, cults can be seen as an organized group or a solitary person whose purpose is to dominate cult members by using psychological manipulation and pressure strategies.

[Note: This is from May 2017]

The chief rabbi of Israel on Saturday night appeared to suggest during his weekly sermon that secular woman behave like animals due to their immodest dress.

Sephardi Chief Rabbi of Israel Itzhak Yosef also lamented that the non-religious community is unaware of how much respect religious Jews supposedly have for women.

In other comments, he advised religious IDF soldiers who find themselves at army events where women are singing to remove their eyeglasses and conspicuously read from a book to demonstrate that they are not participating.

“If the secular knew how much we respect the woman; everything we do is for a woman’s dignity,” Yosef said according to a Sunday report by the Hebrew-language Kikar Hashabat website that serves the religious community. “A woman is not an animal, she has to keep her dignity. To be modest [in her dress] is her dignity.”

Religious demands for modest dress and behavior by women is a cause of friction in the religious-secular divide in Israel with the latter seeing such requirements as sexual discrimination.

In advice to soldiers, Yosef noted that due to his position he is sometimes required to attended official ceremonies that include singing performances by women. Recalling an event he was at that was also attended by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin, Yosef said that when the women started singing he made an obvious display reading from a book that he held up in front of his face to show that he wasn’t listening.

“That way they could all see that I am not listening, my head is in the book, close to what matters,” he explained and instructed religious soldiers to do the same under similar circumstances.

According to religious tradition, if is forbidden for men to hear a woman sing solo, or at all if it is outside of a religious service.

The exclusion of women from musical performances to satisfy religious sensibilities is a controversial subject in Israel, with religious groups often pushing to have women barred from performing in public.

Yosef’s father, Ovadia Yosef, also a chief rabbi, was also known for making controversial statements at his Saturday night sermons, including derogatory comments about Arabs, Muslims and Holocaust victims.

Taylor Swift's November 2008 interview with Ellen Degenerate ended up on YouTube, the video has had 982,811 hits; but when Rep. Ron Paul spoke in July of 2009 about The Immorality of Taxpayer Funded Abortion, the video only had 1,732 hits. Isn't that sad? Congressman Ron Paul's video exposing the evils of abortion didn't even have 2,000 hits; but that wicked lewd girl's interview gets nearly 1,000,000 hits!

Taylor Swift is further corrupting the morals of our nation . . .

While her second album, Fearless, hit shelves the previous calendar year, she held the #1 spot on the Billboard chart for three weeks in 2009 and at one point had eight songs on the Hot 100 chart. After performing at the Grammys with friend Miley Cyrus, Swift embarked on a sold-out 52-city North American tour. Among her many accolades, she won album of the year at the Country Music Association Awards and artist of the year at the American Music Awards.


Miniskirts are sinful for women to wear (1st Timothy 2:9). Proverb 7:10 speaks concerning “the attire of an harlot.” Do you think God wants Christian women wearing “the attire of an harlot?” Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and all the other lascivious harlots of Country Music today are committing evil, corrupting America's youth and are the cause of much sin in our nation. It's high time for born-again, God-fearing, Christ-honoring, sin-hating, soul-loving, soul-winning, Christians to get mad! Tell those whores to go put some clothes on!

I'm talking about good old-fashioned Biblical Christianity. I realize that few people today understand what that is, but America is dying for a lack of God-fearing Christians. Ironically, Taylor Swift attended and graduated from a so-called Christian high school in Tennessee. What kind of morals did they teach there? Somehow, professed Christians all across America have got the notion that it doesn't matter how a woman dresses. It DOES matter to God!

I received an e-mail to help fund a webseries about polyamory and one of their catch phrases is “any choice is valid as long as consent is involved”…. Like no. Consent isn’t magic and doesn’t make everything you do “valid”. What kind of idiots are these people. But again they’re making a webseries about polyamory, so i’m not that surprised.

Why do people who advocate for new sexual identities and gender identities sound abusive and rapey nearly all the damn time. You have to stop.

With each passing day, the ramp up of the Trump administration to a pro-Israel position is astounding. The pick of John Bolton to replace H.R. McMaster as National Security Advisor, in light of the upcoming May 14th 70th anniversary of regathered Israel, is something right out of a Left Behind novel. You could not ask for someone who is more pro-Israel, and pro-Jerusalem for the Jews than John Bolton. The end times prophecy table is almost completely set now, nearly all the players have taken the stage, all we need is for the Lord to flip the switch and call us up and out of here. Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines is now boarding...all eyes on May 14th.

The important distinction is that Seattle and Portland are obnoxiously PC because they don’t have many NAMs (or haven’t traditionally, though NAMs are migrating to the cities South of Seattle). There is an inverse correlation in obnoxiousness to one’s distance from a problem. Southerners are least obnoxiously PC because daily observable reality makes PC peter pan-ism too great an exercise in cognitive dissonance. In Seattle, with a black population of just over 7% and an Hispanic population just over 6%, your average Seattle SWPL need have no real contact with undesirable blacks and thus has fewer daily experiences that would disabuse them of their peter pan beliefs. Southerners, by comparison, have no real way to avoid coming into contact with undesirable blacks. It is also worth noting that northern blacks are, on average, more intelligent than southern blacks. Likely because the smarter of the group figured out how to leave Dixie back in the day.

Tim Matter:
You don't deserve more rights than everybody else. Either keep your evangelists out of school, or allow everybody elses in too.

Guest Verified:
Who is talking about more rights? You are. You want all rights taken away from Christians and all rights given to haters and persecutors. You want it wiped out. Christians can't bake cakes, can't work as florists, can't serve in government, can't live their faith in the work place or classroom. That's persecution. Why don't you ask Muslims to take off their burkas or hijabs, or to stop praying three times a day?

So the world's science idol Stephen Hawking is dead. Sad to say, all the brains, scientific ideals and his outright atheism got him no closer to Heaven than six feet under. He's burning in Hell right now if he never accepted Christ. What a wasted life, deceiving and being deceived.

God Almighty will not be mocked. He sent His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to earth to die on the cross and take away your sins. Sadly Mr. Hawking was a God-hater, but now he wishes he could have one drop of water to cool his tongue. I'm certain that he believes in Jesus now, but alas, it's too late for him!!

Don't waste your life denying Jesus. He loved you enough to shed His precious blood for you. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved.
