That said, we should not be surprised that the far-left favour child sex. After all, the very basis of their cultural Marxist ideology is the idea that Christian morality is ‘reactioinary’ and has to be smashed in order to prepared the ground for revolution. That’s why groups such as the Socialist Workers Party support the legalisation of pedophilia by the abolition of the age of consent.

This leftist promotion of perversion is basically the brainchild of György Lukács, a Hungarian-based (but not Hungarian) Bolshevik who was deputy commissar for culture in the Béla Kun regime in Hungary in 1919. Lukács’ goal was openly and avowedly to eradicate Christianity and Christian morality from Hungarian society, and he believed that one of the most effective methods of achieving this would be to undermine sexual morality through the introduction of compulsory sex education in schools.

To achieve his aims, he introduced a radical programme in schools which included graphic literature being handed out to children, the promotion of promiscuity, the mocking of monogamy, and the scorning of their parents’ moral ethics.

The Béla Kun regime in Hungary lasted only six months, so György Lukács never got to see the rotten fruit of his plans. But unfortunately his ideas didn’t die with regime. Four years later he turned up in Frankfurt for a Marxist study week, where he shared his ideas amongst a fascinated group. One of the Marxists there, Felix Weil, was so taken with Lukács’ ideas that he used the fortune he had inherited to finance the Institute of Social research in Frankfurt – what became known as the Frankfurt School – incorporating many of Lukács’ ideas in its teaching.

The goal of the Institute was to translate Marxism from economic into cultural terms, since economic Marxism hadn’t had the success amongst the working classes that they had expected or hoped for. The reason for this lack of success, they surmised, was that the working classes had been contaminated with traditional bourgeois morals. So they set about breaking those morals through a number of means, including portraying traditional attitudes as “prejudice”, promoting androgyny, homosexuality and other perversions and by seeking to subvert the language through what we now know as “political correctness”.

Which, on reflection, is what should have told us that Antiphobic Aktion was not the work of trolls, but simply a ‘kite-flyer’ for the far-left’s next big assault on decency and Christian society – the attempt to normalise pedophilia. Because that was part of the long-term goal when they began their first, tentative propaganda about the need to halt the ‘repression’ of adult male homosexuality. It’s all part of the same plan!

I don’t get this transgenderism, at all. AT 72, life was complicated enough just handling my “birth” gender, male. Why would any male want to undergo the mutilation and problems of changing into another sex.

The “best looking” SHemale (boy turned girl) I’ve ever seen, was ugly. If I saw Caitland coming down the street toward me, I would know first, “she” is a “he”, and secondly, I’d cross the street to keep from passing he/she/it on the sidewalk.

Most of these male to female transitions look no more like real women than did “Uncle Miltie” (Milton Berle) in the 50’s doing his drag comedy routine on TV. It’s just another step to shock and amaze others, like those with zillions of tattoos, metal studs sticking out of every orifice and available space on the face.

They do these things to themselves, and then lament that others don’t “support” them, or “respect” them. And, in my opinion, I don’t support or respect them. They’re nuts. Starving for attention at the most primal level, the desire to be a completely different person, gender and all. The media eats it up. They live in the same mindset. And, so long as the weirdoes get this attention, they’ll keep acting out these fantasies.

One day, they might wake up. It might be too late. They’ll be old, and lonely...hideous with faded tattoos covering their now, unrecognizable faces, and having the usual problems and diseases of getting old. Meanwhile, the rest of us should go on with our lives; we didn’t create the problem, and we (as individuals) don’t have to fix it.

Oh, I know! Pick me!
Ya see (Now this is just an opinion), people DON'T believe in creation because they DON'T want to. They know it makes sense, but they do not want to follow rules that God wants them to. Basically, admitting that someone created you would mean: 1. No more parties 2. No more 'common (Swears)' language 3. For some people a total attitude change. And, over all, 'no fun.' People want to believe evolution because there are NO rules to evolution. Do you know how blessed we are to be Christians at a young age? To think of all the hurt we would have caused our Great, Almighty Creator just makes me literally feel sick!

Quote# 126389

Fuck You

I can’t connect to anyone. I don’t know what to say to people even if I want to say something. I wish for most people to just disappear on the spot. We live in different realms. They say their stuff and I can’t even argue because I still can’t fully wrap my head around that they believe it. That all these people live in the world that allows them to think and talk that way. And feeling so right while doing it. So sane and balanced, well intended. So sure in their own importance and abilities even when they act modest and insecure, it shines through. In how they give advice, in how they assume the value of their intent, in how they think people should hear their opinions and conclusions because they have something to offer. In the fact that they dare to even search for meaning in things. In their self love, or pursuit for self love. In their selfies. In their jokes. I hate them. I hate them because they don’t even have the capacity to understand why I hate them. I can try to explain how disgusting they are but it won’t resonate when all those parts are what they are most proud off. So the problem is me, except I know i see things clearly. I know why I hate what I hate, and I stand by my hatred. I like my hatred. I have almost no real personality, I have no real tools to cope much with life, but I am glad I still feel disgust and hatred. If I didn’t, I would be someone truly horrible.

“Hate eats you up inside.” No, it doesn’t. It builds me up. At least it gives me momentary focus. Who cares whom I hate anyway. I’m generous with it. I don’t even interact with people though, how much do you need to be liked to be bothered by misogyny or misanthropy of someone like me?

Does it really need to be explained that there are levels from which we can observe things. On some level I hate you all. On some level you just annoy me. On some level I really don’t care. There are people I don’t hate, who say things I don’t find to be dumb. But I still can’t connect. I can’t have conversations, I can’t have or meet up to expectations. I hate the people I like as well then, on some level, cause they make me feel the worst. And I’m not even really close to anyone, that’s my act of altruism from a very profound level where I’m practically a hero. Every time I choose to stay away, I am a hero. Every time I tell you to go fuck yourself, I am a hero. Cause I let you go and I know exactly what you think about me, and it’s so easy for you to reach your conclusions and let it go. I am doing an act of kindness. When I tell you to go choke on a dick, I am giving you an easy out. And I like it. I like to say these things to people I don’t like. But it’s nothing. What makes you worthy of such dislike is how easily you then take this hatred trivially, but it’s not trivial. It’s not personal, for that you would have to be a person. It’s depressing, it’s disgusting, it’s completely overwhelming how sick you make me feel.

I’m not speaking from a moral high ground although my hatred is moral. I’m not speaking as a person, I’s much bigger than that. I don’t speak from self love, cause I could never begin to even think about taking that idiotic concept seriously, let alone see it as something to work on. How do you say such stupid words and don’t stop and get filled with disgust. Or at least find it funny. Something, anything but what you’re doing and thinking now.

No, I don’t love myself. If I hate myself, that’s also on some level. On some level I have very bad anxiety, I can’t speak, I can’t think and I can’t take it. I hate this situation. But it doesn’t matter. Contradictions are only an issue to idiots. There’s no hypocrisy. I don’t have to be anyone at all to hate you. Nothing needs to be deserved.

My hatred won’t harm you, it helps you. You will interpret in such way where it will fit right in with your beliefs and I am the example of what you don’t want to be like at all. And that’s how it will always be, you’ll talk on and on loving your voice, and I’ll say my shit and no one will hear anyone, cause if by any chance we do hear then we can just hate. If you could see how i see you, you would hate me too.

I know why I talk here. I just come here trying to find my thoughts and put them together so they leave my head. I don’t do it to exist or to tell others who I am. I don’t have solutions. That’s all it is, stupid random thoughts. But I have no doubt that my hatred is my morality. It is not wrong, and it is not bad, not for me or for anyone else.

Love is different, love is for individuals.

But I know I can’t connect with anyone. There is no solution, and the problem isn’t complex. It’s lack of ability. It’s so frustrating. You can’t imagine the frustration of it. When you want something so much but it doesn’t exist in others, and it doesn’t exist in you. You spent years working on some solution personified, or epiphany, and you spend years knowing there is none, but you still want to say to someone they are right, or that you agree, or that something they said reflected what you were thinking and it meant something to you. It is not something you experience often, and even though it won’t change anything, you think you can get something through that recognition, that something can be added onto you. But when you try to say it, it’s already dead. You can’t do anything with it, you can’t make it important without coping and turning things into your own little myths and legends. And then it’s disgusting. Before you know it it’s over.

But that’s not your life. You’re not alone, you all share the whole world where almost everything in it has the same meaning and you all relate. You’re so safe. Sometimes you find some things you can’t relate and you feel lonely until you eventually find someone you can relate even that to. You feel lonely so easily but you’re never really lonely. We are really lonely. We can’t relate anything, not even with each other. Our minds are empty. We don’t connect. We live in completely different worlds but while you’re all together in yours we are nowhere. It’s not a world, it’s just some empty place with nothing in it and we watch you. Your world is shit. Jealousy only goes so deep, it’s a distraction. Your world is a nightmare to watch but you are relatively content in it, and you’re not lonely in it. You ruin everything I could care about. I don’t want to be like you, and i don’t want to be where you are. And I don’t want to be where I am. But these two things are completely different and comparison is dumb.

I can’t do anything. I’m also just stuck. I can only hate everything to keep sane. When I say i wish everything was different, I don’t mean self improve, i don’t mean being like someone else, I don’t mean utopia, I mean everything.

I have a plan for terrorist protection and prevention. From now on if a terrorist kills himself by suicide bombing, or is otherwise killed in an attempt to hurt others we embalm their bodies in pig lard and wrapped in bacon.

Also, I was thinkinging, we could have airplane security guards carry squirtguns filled with pigs blood. Of course, it would have to have anti-coagulants in it, but it would rock because if some terrorist went crazy we could squirt them with pigs blood, and they couldn't blow themselves up because they'd be unclean, and would have to go to a mosque and pray or something. Of course, then we'd catch them.

Also, if a terrorist is caught alive, we make them eat nothing but pork chops and work on a pig farm and play Porky the Pig cartoons in their cells all day. Their clothes and upholstery would be made of pigskin leather, and we'd give them pork rind potato chips. Every meal would include bacon bits. The carpeting in their cells would be boar's fur rugs, and their beds would have Miss Piggy sheets, pillowcovers, and bed spreads.

Verily, I am a genius.

Second Amendment--necessary and Godly!

My esteemed fellow Christians,

I trust it that you have all seen the news relative to the shooting that occurred at a secular public school in Florida earlier today. In Parkland, FL, a servant of satan named Nikolas Cruz shot 17 high school students to death in the name of satan. This is exactly why that as a real Christian I encourage everyone to vote for the Constitution Party in all elections. They are far from being model Christians, but it is the best we've got and the best chance that the Christian has to start TRULY taking our country back!

Relative to today's shooting attack, we can certainly expect the membership of the Demoncratic party and all manner of other satanists (Matthew 12:30) attacking our Second Amendment rights and therefore attacking Jesus Himself and His KJV! How so? Simple: because the Second Amendment is Biblical, duh! Our Bible says the following, to wit: "Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one." Luke 22:36. Have these satanists forgotten that going against Jesus, they WILL get their just reward, and likely not just in the next life but also in this one (1 Samuel 5:12)?

As Christians it is our duty to come out in the defense of our Constitution and our Bible and against the heathens that want to undermine both. In fact, it is lack of proper Second Amendment protections that caused such fatalities during this shooting. Just imagine if the law was being applied properly, and all Christian students at that high school were allowed to carry firearms. That would've saved a lot of lives, including the pagan lives! If anything, the pagan/heathen/satanist element ought to be supportive of such glorious ideas, that would end up saving their lives, instead of opposing us!

I trust it that all real American Christians will contact their congressmen to express the need to strengthen our Second Amendment right, remove silly limits on Christian gun ownership, and start saving lives!

In the name of our Savior,
Brother T

It’s really quite simple:

Mormon welfare (among other expenses) is paid for with a 10% flat tax on earnings (tithing). It is also administered by elders who apply Mormon moral tests to recipients.

You don’t get much welfare for being a single mother whose baby-daddy is in prison for gang-related activities. Nor do you get it for being an adulteress, a layabout or an addict.

Therefore, Mormons who have it together can afford more kids, even if they are working class. Since having it together is correlated with rational decisionmaking ability, it is correlated with IQ.

Traditional Christianity used to be the same. The New Testament makes it clear that if you don’t behave yourself, do your fair share of work and make the right choices you’re out of the community.

[Bolding added, when you hate fat people so much that you consider it a mark against feeding the poor]

Sorry Bill. Not quite right. The 10% tithing does not go towards welfare at all.
The welfare program comes from a system we have where we are expected to fast for two meals a month, and pool that money to help the poor. Unlike taxes, we literally sacrifice our meals to feed others. The recipients of this assistance know that they are quite literally having others go hungry to help them out. While there are still abusers and freeloaders, of course, I think this cuts down substantially on the sense of entitlement I often see in tax-based government welfare programs.

Don’t get me wrong though — there is no public shaming or the like in the program. The congregation is unaware of who is receiving the funds, aside from a couple of trusted volunteers that are in the know in administrating the funds (which are fully audited as well, of course, to prevent abuses).

The program works quite well, and my son once did an analysis of data on hunger in the US that indicated that if this “skip two meals once a month to help others” program were deployed nationally, it could end hunger in the US.

Thanks for the info. So there’s actually a separate “tax” beyond the 10% tithing, which comes out to roughly what? I know Mormons know how to eat on the cheap (so do I; I have been known to visit the bulk aisles at Winco from time to time), so the cost of two meals could vary considerably.

Also, what about the hard cases? Say you have someone who just sleeps in until noon every day, spends the rest on social media and blows her child support check on frivolous entertainment and sexy clothes, yet still has an pharaonic sense of entitlement. This is actually a pretty common profile, BTW. How do you deal with her?

As to your son’s idea, I’m sure he’s correct. Skipping two meals a month would more than eliminate hunger in the US. However, it would have another less desirable consequence: it would exacerbate the class difference in obesity rates by making the middle class and above thinner while making the underclass even fatter.

San Diego, CA – The Resistance is a nationwide Christian organization with over 2000 members focused on protecting Christianity and Christian values and are demanding Duke University change the name of their sports team to something not offensive to the Christian community.

Sports teams at the University are called the Blue Devils, a name Mark Dice says is blasphemous, and disrespectful to Christians and non-Christians alike. “If the team were named the Blue Nazis would that be ok?” asks Dice, who is the spokesperson for The Resistance. “There would be outrage across the country, yet naming a team after the Devil is ok?”

"Numerous college sports teams have faced opposition in the past to using ethnic names which were offensive to segments of the community, and this is no different,” explains Mark.

The Resistance has gained international news coverage for a variety of issues including a boycott of the implant able RFID tag, the VeriChip, the protesting an occult monument in Georgia called the Georgia Guidestones, and for demanding MTV pull Jessica Simpson’s 2005 music video these Boots are Made for Walking for being “slutty.”

(This quote is about changing the Wikipedia article of Aesthetic Realism -- a obscure NY-based cult that was famous in the 70's/80's for claiming they could cure homosexuality. MichaelBluejay is a well-known critic of the cult.)

The version MichaelBluejay posted is derisive and definitely POV. Sources include his own website, as well as anonymous comments on other websites. Entirely omitted is the philosophic basis of how Aesthetic Realism sees this subject in favor of a cartoonish version. From the beginning Aesthetic Realism is presented as out for publicity, “riding the buzz”.

The truth is that the only reason Aesthetic Realism and Eli Siegel dealt with the subject at all is because men, like myself once, did not like themselves for being homosexual and were looking for a way to change—and we found it.

Sure some men decided that Aesthetic Realism wasn’t for them and they preferred to live a gay lifestyle which, of course, is their right. But you would never know from this version that there are men who have lived meaningful, fulfilled heterosexual lives, including marriage and children, for 10, 20, 30+ years. The controversy and opposition can be presented, but it has to be in an evenhanded way.

Maryland 'Psychic' Convicted of Scamming Clients Out of $340K

A Maryland woman who said she was a psychic and scammed customers out of $340,000 to cure them of "curses" pleaded guilty Friday to multiple counts of felony theft.

Gina Marie Marks, who identified herself as Natalie Miller in her meetings with clients, stole from five people who sought her help over the course of more than two years.

Marks said Friday that she would return all of the payments she received. She walked out of court in Montgomery County with her husband, who wrapped a coat over her head.

She was adamant that her services are legitimate and she really is a psychic.

“People are racist from gypsies,” Marks said from beneath a black, puffy coat. “They’re racist on my culture. We do have power. We’re not allowed to talk about it.”

Police first learned of Marks’ tactics in May 2016, after a 26-year-old Chinese immigrant learned that her boyfriend was married to another woman. Seeking guidance, the woman saw an online ad for “Readings by Natalie.”

When the woman contacted Marks, she told her she would be able to cast love spells. But she said she would need large amounts of cash to do it.

Marks had the woman meet her at stores, where Marks used the woman's credit card.

The customer got suspicious after Marks had received more than $80,000 from her in cash and purchases. The woman asked for her money back and called police and a private investigator.

On four other occasions, Marks told clients she had the ability to reverse curses. In June 2014, one victim paid Marks and said she was told she would get her money back once the curse was broken.

She never got back the $2,654 she paid.

As Marks received cash and shopping trips with her clients’ credit cards, she posted pictures to social media of herself with expensive clothes, jewelry and purses.

Eventually, the private investigator hired by one customer was able to track down Marks at Miami International Airport. She was arrested before she was able to flee the country.

Marks is facing as much as six years in prison and is scheduled to be sentenced in August.

God's love demands a hell. Imagine a man proposing to a woman in marriage and the woman refuses saying I respect you, I admire you, but I am not going to marry you. Then he comes to her and proposes to her again and she declines. He comes to her again and proposes and she declines. And then the man says I love you so much I'm going to force you to marry me. That relationship would not be operating by love, forced love is really not love at all. God's love is persuasive, it's convincing, but it's never coercive. He's not going to put your arm behind your back and force you to do what's right. He's going to allow you to have the freedom of choice, yet he will give you all the proof one needs to be convinced that He is love. This love is also perfect in justice, and God is longsuffering in His love, patient, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. So the choice is really up to us, it's ours to make. It's an eternal choice which we cannot change once we die. There are no shotgun weddings in heaven, but there will be a great divorce for those who refuse to enter into a vow and a covenant with God and Christ as their husband. If there is no heaven to gain or hell to shun, justice would not prevail in the universe. If there is no final judgment there is no Hell. The Bible teaches the dead will be raised to give an account and then punished. So there has to be a final separation for wickedness. We find evil is unable to be contained, it's easily spread. This cannot be said for godliness, which is not easily spread.

We are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth at which time evil will cease. Evil will be totally removed from those of us who are going God's way, who love God, and who have been born again into His kingdom. Sin has taken its effect on this world and its people and we are told in Scripture that all creation groans in travail for the day when all this will be removed. Hell shows the nature of sin and the great cost of salvation, it shows the very love of God. By the cross we see how hideous sin is and how much more powerful God's love is. This is the very reason that Jesus died, to save people from their sins. Death is the penalty of sin, the body dies and the soul becomes separate from the creator who gave them life. If there is no eternal consequences to sin then the crucifixion is robbed of its very significance. Jesus suffered in vain and it would not have been necessary for Him to die for our sins. Yet, God the father said there is no other way, that Christ is the only way. Jesus, who was truth incarnate, warned us, if your hand offends you, cut it off, it was better for you to go to heaven maimed than to go to the unquenchable fire whole, or with two arms, speaking with a hyperbole, using extreme examples to make the point how serious it is. Was He putting a non-existent fear in us for over nineteen hundred years? Of course not. Fear can actually be a good motivation because it leads to the preservation of one's life or soul. The Bible tells us the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, that if we want to understand what wisdom and knowledge is, it begins with a healthy respect and fear of God because He is in control and he deals justly. However we need to be as the evangelist D. L. Moody who said, when we speak of Hell, have a tear in your eye and a quiver in your voice.

Fake Research Paper Based on Star Trek: Voyager's Worst Episode Was Published by a Scientific Journal

“Threshold” is one of the most infamous Star Trek episodes ever. You know what’ we’re talking about—the one with Warp 10 and the weird evolved amphibians. Well, it was also the recent subject of a fake scientific research paper submitted in a test to expose the ever-growing problem of “predatory” scientific journals.

An anonymous biologist looking to expose how easy it was to get fake news into supposedly peer-reviewed scientific journals—inspired by a recent attempt that got a paper about Star Wars’ midi-chlorians published in three different journals—recently submitted a paper titled “Rapid Genetic and Developmental Morphological Change Following Extreme Celerity.” The author was listed as “Doctor Lewis Zimmerman,” which is actually the name of the holoengineer that programmed Voyager’s Emergency Medical Hologram.

The paper was essentially a recap of the events of “Threshold,” the godawful season two episode in which Voyager’s helmsman Tom Paris attempts to break the theoretical “Warp 10” speed barrier, something never done in Trek’s universe. Turns out, it’s for good reason, because apparently when you do reach the “extreme celerity” of Warp 10, you turn into a weird amphibian-person, capture your captain, evolve them into a weird amphibian-person, and then fully evolve into actual space salamanders and mate with each other.

Look, there’s a reason even the people who made this episode call it a “real low point.”

But nonetheless, the paper—which, while obfuscating its language a bit, was still very clearly fake, including mentions of the transwarp barrier Paris breaks in the episode and even concluded by thanking the United Federation of Planets and Voyager producer Brannon Braga—was accepted by four different journals, and actually published in one, American Research Journal of Biosciences. According to a Space.com interview with the anonymous biologist who submitted the paper, the journal asked for just $50 to do so. ARJ have now pulled the text from their website in light of media reports discovering that the paper is essentially a fancier-worded Memory Alpha page.

In the world of science publishing, the rise of “predatory” journals and a lack of proper checks on the papers that get accepted into them is a growing, disconcerting problem. Multiple sting operations into exposing the issue—including an alarming report by journalist John Bohannon in 2015, who managed to get a scientifically accurate, but intentionally poor and catchily-presented study, into predatory journals that then went on to work its way into the media—have occurred in recent years.

But with efforts like this Trek-themed paper and last year’s midi-chlorian one, it shows that it’s not just poorly-conducted research making its way into journals, but blatantly false papers as well. In a time when public faith in science is more important than ever, practices that allow for jokey incidents like this to happen only help to erode public trust in even the best science publishing.

Mary was medically proven to be a virgin while carrying Jesus.
If she was NOT a virgin at that point,she would have been an outcast,& no Jewish man would have ever married her.

If you can't understand how women can be proven to be virgins;Then you have a lot to learn about the female body!

Truth v Lies
5 years ago
I have yet to see where anyone who is only stating his opinion has said that homosexuals are not human. The only people as far as I can see who say they are not human is homosexuals themselves as they keep on bringing up the spurious argument that there 1,500 (note 1,500, not 1,501) species of animals that are homosexual so its OK for them to be homosexual as after all, we are only a higher evolved animal.

If I had the time and room, I would detail all sorts of ways they are hurting themselves as homosexuality is a self defeating way of life and fraught within all sorts of emotional dysfunction.

Promote family values ????

The last time I looked you needed a mum and dad to be a family.

The last time I looked you needed to be able to procreate to be a family.

The last time I looked, a family does not invite their boyfriends to have sex with them every week in addition to the one they are married to.

The last time I looked, a family does not sit down with their children and spend an evening viewing pornography.

The last time I looked a family does not tell its children that homosexuality is normal and you should try it.

The last time I looked, a family does not embarrass the children by having two dads and no mother.

The last time I looked, a family does not send death threats to other families children.

Promoting family values? You really are scraping the bottom of the barrel making spurious claims like that. Or is that another one of your lies?
