I’ll grant you that we sometimes can’t know for certain what a person’s final spiritual state is, but we can have some pretty strong clues.

You might as well surmise that Judas could have repented unto salvation before he hung himself.

Edith Windsor never repudiated her unholy “marriage” to another woman, even unto her death. That is pretty substantive certainty that she died a damned sinner.

The broader issue is the tiered morality built into modern liberalism, that others cannot set boundaries but liberals don’t see it as wrong or hypocritical if they set boundaries. So if you refuse per your religious or conservative political beliefs, that’s evil discrimination. If they refuse per their beliefs, it is moral and good and reasonable and no imposition at all.

And if they demand others obey the same rules per religious levels of investment in politics - they don’t like it and no one else should do it either - classic liberals rarely stand up to the liberal bullies, social justice warriors, because the demands for submission are wrapped in the same language of empathy and harm.

In her case, the liberal judges relied on emotional reasoning: Oh, the poor victim, you aren’t allowed to hurt their feelings. Her feelings don’t matter. In that case, it was making a wedding cake. For Christians, that’s blasphemy, while a birthday cake baring Jehovah’s Witnesses isn’t.

They even stripped her of personal immunity, not only shutting down the business but the prosecutor saying the suing party could go after her home. That was done because the prosecutor decided to punish her extra in ways no standard case is, because how dare she refuse those sacred homosexuals on their holiest day - thou shalt not dissent ever.

Unfair extra penalties when you say fairness is universal standards but not when liberals say “these groups have more rights and moral weight than everyone else”.

It is not at all true that a homosexual propensity is equal to “gay,” the latter being a wholly political, embraced idea.

A man may go through life ignoring or fighting the inherent urge (more or less contingent on the strength of the libido) as a married man, and not be considered “gay.”

But when the threshold of acceptance and abandon is crossed, that is a fundamental sea change in the makeup of that man. He is an entirely different man, clearly distinguishable from the former man.

Isn’t it odd that the ‘science’ crowd will threaten, jail, fine, and hurl invective at anyone who points out that a) there is no genetic basis for homosexuality and b) suggests finding a scientific means of correcting or reversing it?

If someone had only three fingers on a hand and a drug was discovered/developed that could restore the missing digit would that be viewed as negative or controversial?

If someone developed hormonal treatment (ie the same sort of treatment currently used to ‘convert’ between sexes) that would eliminate homosexuality would they be praised or persecuted?

Quote# 131697

During his interview with Jonathan Cahn this morning, End Times prepper pastor Jim Bakker suggested that he could be murdered for going out in public wearing a hat with a cross on it.

Recounting his recent visit to the White House, Bakker declared that he is “so moved by our president asking for prayer” as he rejoiced that “the president is always asking for prayer” because he is a man “that loves prayer.”

Bakker claimed that President Trump watches his program and has told one of Bakker’s close friend that he likes Bakker because “he got back up” after “something happened in [his] life that knocked [him] down.” (For the record, that “something” that knocked Bakker down was the prison sentence he received after being convicted of dozens of counts of fraud.)

Bakker went on to declare that “everything God’s ever spoke to me has come to pass” while fuming that society has made Christians afraid to share their faith. But Bakker refuses to be controlled by that fear, even though he knows he could be killed simply for wearing a Christian hat in public.

“I wear them out in public and I know I could be shot,” he proclaimed. “I know that. There are crazy people out there, but I’m not going to deny the cross. I will not deny the cross! I won’t.”

Pray that the SPLC’s leaders, deeds, and motives will be exposed and that their influence will diminish. May God mercifully reach into the lives of the SPLC’s leaders, staff, and supporters, and convict them of the wrong they are doing. May the Holy Spirit lead them to repentance. May many encounter Christ dramatically, just as Rabbi Saul before he became the Apostle Paul, who was on his way to destroy followers of Christ. May the American press and Big Business cease and desist from promoting the SPLC. May those who have helped instigate the present divide among Americans cease to sow seeds of division. Rather, may their stockpiled millions of dollars be used to heal the divisions in America they have helped to create. Protect and prevent the innocent and vulnerable from falling prey to SPLC’s fundraising schemes. Keep them from entanglement with the deeds of the SPLC. Finally, we pray that you would hinder the SPLC from inspiring the harm of one more person and move them to take sincere Christ-followers and Christian organizations off their ‘Hate List’ and issue a much needed apology.

On his radio program yesterday, Religious Right activist E.W. Jackson interviewed WorldNetDaily’s David Kupelian, where the two agreed that homosexuality is obviously unnatural based on the fact that small children are grossed out by the sight of two men or two women kissing.

“We now have 4-year-old kids in preschool where we have lesbian and transgender teachers,” Kupelian said. “They go in and they show two women kissing, two men kissing; there is a natural ick factor where children who have not been corrupted say, ‘Ick, that’s gross.’ I’m sorry, it is gross and the grossness is something that God has put in their mind. People may not like to hear this but it actually is gross and it’s a natural reaction of little innocent kids.”

Jackson agreed, saying,”Let’s face it, you put before a group of 4, 5, 6, 7-year-olds two men kissing and of course they’re going to say, ‘Eww, eww, that’s gross.’ They probably haven’t grown up seeing that, it is unusual to them but the whole point of the left and the LGBT movement is to desensitize people to it, to make it so common that people don’t even react to it.”

“The visceral reaction to it is that something is not right,” Jackson said, “and you see that in the innocence of children … In their heart of heart, they know something is not right about it. And, of course, the Bible teaches us that God has given us a conscience.”

Barcelona's chief rabbi has urged Jews to move to Israel because "Europe is lost" to radical Islam.

Meir Bar-Hen has been encouraging his congregation to flee Spain, which he called a "hub of Islamist terror for all of Europe."

The chief rabbi's warning came after a terror attack in Barcelona left 13 people dead and over 120 wounded and was followed by another attack hours later that killed one person and injured others in the seaside town of Cambrils.

Isis claimed responsibility for both attacks, which authorities believe were the work of a large terrorist cell that had been plotting for some time.

Mr Bar-Hen said: "Jews are not here permanently.

“I tell my congregants: Don’t think we’re here for good. And I encourage them to buy property in Israel. This place is lost. Don’t repeat the mistake of Algerian Jews, of Venezuelan Jews. Better [get out] early than late.”

He went on to say the attacks had exposed the presence of "radical fringes" within the Muslim community, a problem he said applied to Europe as a whole.

"Europe is lost," he added.

His comments were at odds with the Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain, which said it had "full confidence in security forces who work daily to prevent fanatics and radical Muslims from inflicting pain and chaos on our cities."

Police in Catalonia are searching for Younes Abouyaaquoub, a 22-year-old Moroccan suspected of carrying out the attack in Barcelona.

Right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein posted a video recently in which he suggested that God is opposed to the removal of Confederate monuments and is divinely intervening to prevent them from being taken down.

Discussing a decision by “communist” Dallas officials to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee from a city park, Bernstein said that the first crane brought in to do the job was too small, forcing the city to bring in a larger crane. After praising several companies for refusing to help the city with this effort, Bernstein noted that a larger crane was eventually found, but that it got into a fatal accident on its way to the job site.

“I don’t do a religious show,” Bernstein said, “but isn’t this a little odd that two attempts have been made to take down this statue and, for whatever reasons, they have not been successful—the second of which being a fatal accident. Is this divine intervention, folks? Is this maybe a sign from up above, saying you shouldn’t remove this statue?”

For the record, the statue was successfully removed last night.

Everybody is all about freedom of speech and expression until a black person (hey, Colin Kaepernick; hey, Jemele Hill) decides to exercise his or her right to do so. And in this particular case, a black sixth-grader out of Michigan says he was assaulted by his homeroom teacher all because he was exercising his rights and declined to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.

Stone Chaney, who attends East Middle School in Farmington Hills, Mich., told ClickOnDetroit that his teacher “violently” dragged him out of his chair and attempted to force him to stand for the pledge, leaving the young man confused and unwilling to return to that school.
consultant comes up behind me and snatches me out of my chair violently,” Stone told the news site. “I was so confused. I didn’t know what was going on.”

Note that Stone referred to the individual in question as the “teacher consultant.” That means that the person who allegedly thought it was all right to snatch a child out of his seat trains other teachers. One would wonder what kind of training those other teachers are receiving.

Except I can tell you exactly what, because Stone claims that the very next day after the initial incident, another teacher yelled at him for remaining seated during the pledge.

Stone is very adamant about not standing, saying that he does not pledge to a flag.

“I don’t stand because I don’t pledge to a flag,” the precocious child explained. “I pledge to God and family.”

Stone’s parents are still looking for answers as to how the incident, which occurred Sept. 7., could have unfolded the way it did. His father addressed the district directly at its last board meeting, defending his son’s right to do what he wishes when the pledge is being spoken.

“It’s his choice to sit,” Brian Chaney said. “I don’t make him sit. And they should respect that.”

The superintendent of Farmington Public Schools released a statement detailing that the district does support the right of students to opt out of the pledge, announcing that it was conducting an investigation and that the teacher involved has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome.

In the meantime, Stone and his family are looking into other options and will probably end up leaving the district, the news station notes.

A 16-year-old student in Scotland has been told that he cannot wear a Pride badge because it “promotes” homosexuality. The student, who wishes to remain anonymous, told PinkNews that after attending Edinburgh Pride during the weekend he returned to school with a small Pride badge on his uniform.

The circular badge is smaller than a £2 coin and has a heart with rainbow stripes. However, St. Kentigern’s Academy in Blackburn, West Lothian told the student that he could not wear the badge. The teen told us that the instructions came to him on behalf of the head teacher, Mr Sharkey. He was not initially told why he could not wear the badge and grew to be upset. “I was given no reason why, then after I got upset about it I was told by the teacher who told me to take it off that the school had ‘no problem’ with me being gay, but however I’m ‘promoting’ it by wearing the badge,” the teen said.

He explained that he refused to take the badge off. “I told them that I was refusing to take it off which was fed back to the head teacher. I was then told by another senior member of staff, who I had a really good dialogue with, the exact same thing.”

The school’s uniform policy states that students must not wear jewellery which could be seen to: encourage rivalry, cause offence, damage flooring, promote a message contrary to the values of the school of the council, carry advertising or could be used as a weapon.

The student told PinkNews that it was not unusual for people in the school to wear badges, with the school often providing badges for student roles.
He explained that he had hoped to wear the badge there because it was one of the few places he felt he could safely express his sexuality as he has not yet come out to his family.

Despite the school displaying posters promoting “love, faith, equality, inclusiveness, hope and respect”, the student was told that he did not need a badge to display his Pride. “I was told by the senior staff member that the school was okay with my sexuality, I just can’t promote ‘it’. “I said to her that I wore the badge because it was the only place where I feel safe about my sexuality and she told me ‘you don’t need to wear a badge for that’.”

The whole situation has left the student feeling uncomfortable in his school. “I feel shocked by the whole thing as well as scared as I no longer feel comfortable going to school. “I feel I am going into a place where there’s homophobia from staff members. Which feels much more scarier than when I encountered the same from other pupils,” he explained. The student added that he hopes policy surrounding LGBT issues will be revisited to avoid similar mishaps in the future.

“I feel there is a lack of understanding of what I am wearing, its significance, what it stands for, as well as what it doesn’t stand for,” he added. A West Lothian Council spokesperson told PinkNews: “Pupils at St Kentigern’s are asked to remove all non-school related badges from their uniforms.

“West Lothian Council is committed to equal rights for LGBT people and is the main supporter of West Lothian Pride. We are also a Stonewall Diversity Champion for our work to promote inclusivity.”

The correct response (if homeschooling is not an option) is a premature but detailed lesson on the real world:

Some adults lie about important things.
Some adults are mistaken about important things.
No, boys cannot become girls, either by choice or by accident. There is nothing to worry about.
No, girls cannot become boys, either by choice or by accident. There is nothing to worry about.
Boys and girls are not allowed to ask questions about this at school because sensible questions will get them in trouble with people who enjoy getting angry.

Can you tell whether you are a boy or a girl? How? Your classmate doesn’t understand this, and because their parents are also confused, you will get in trouble if you try to explain it.

I could go on, but the best response to wrong information is the truth, in all the detail that is necessary.

An Open Letter To Gay, White Men: No, You’re Not Allowed To Have A Racial Preference

Dear Gay White Men,

Before I begin, I want you to understand that I’m not calling all of you racist. I’ve never been one to throw that word around casually and even though I’m sure there are some that word would fit like a glove, I’m not talking to them. I’m talking to you ? the cisgendered, white, gay men out there who hold no ill will towards minorities (especially black and brown ones) but somehow have never found themselves in bed with one. You’re good guys, I know this to be true. You mean well when it comes to race relations but, as a white man in... the world, you must admit, you have no clue what it means to be racially discriminated against. As a result, there are often times when you don’t recognize when your behavior towards people of color veers into problematic territory. As a black man within the gay community, I recognize that shit all the time and have a few points I’d like to discuss with you. I’m not here to judge you. There’s only one capital H-i-m and it’s not me. But you may want to take my words to heart if you’d like to live up to those progressive memes you share on Facebook all the time.

Let’s start with the epicenter of your problematic behaviors towards my kind: your dating app profile. I know it can be hard to find the right words while expressing your preferences when it comes to what you’re looking for in a partner. Whether you’re looking for “Mr. Right” or “Mr. Yea Daddy Right There” but I can’t help but notice that a lot of you get lost, like... really lost, when it comes to stating your preferences properly. To be clear, you’re allowed to describe the kind of guy you’re looking for and the things that turn you on but specifying the race of your desired partner is a line that is not to be crossed. It comes off as racist and that’s because it is.

I should point out that I’ve had this conversation with more than a couple of white gays in person and here is where the debate usually begins, so I’m going to assume that you’re rolling your eyes at me right about now. That’s fine and to make you feel more heard I’ll even repeat the most common point used to counter my argument ? “but people like what they like. Can’t change that.” I’ve heard that excuse, or some iteration of it, used many times. Almost as if it’s a magic phrase that just kind of ends the conversation and absolves you of your bullshit. I’ll put aside the fact that broadcasting your distaste for an entire race, or multiple races, in the year 2017 is really dumb in addition to being racist as fuck, and just challenge the reasoning here head on. Yes, people like what they like but sometimes the things people like are racist, like lawn jockeys or the current president of the United States. You can’t say you prefer one race of people as romantic partners, or anything really, to another because all of the people who belong to one race are not the same. No matter how you slice it, it’s racist.

But what if Black and Asian men choose to only date other Black and Asian men? Isn’t that racist too? No... and you tried it. Look, all men are created equal but all men are not valued equally, especially in this country. Every Black and Asian man who grew up on this planet grew up surrounded by positive images of whiteness and white men. Therefore, our desire to date within our own race, when we choose to, is not rooted in any assertion made by society that we’re better than anyone else. I know this is a lot to digest so I’ll just boil it down to this: if your preference for a partner supports an existing racial hierarchy which marginalizes minorities, then your preferences are racist. And yes, that includes you rice queens and chocolate chasers too. Fetishizing me is not a compliment, it’s propping up harmful sexual stereotypes and, it too, is racist.

As I’ve said before, I have had this conversation many times so I know what comes next. You’re saying to yourself “Damn! If I don’t go for men of color I’m racist. If I do, I’m racist.” Well... yes! If you’re making any of your dating decisions with a person’s race in mind, that’s racist. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you have to find all Black and Asian men attractive. I sure as hell don’t. What I’m saying is that men of color are still men, and as such, we want the people making decisions about our desirability to make them based on who and what we are and that doesn’t begin and end with a few layers of melanin.

“Fine, I’m a horrible racist asshole. What do I do about it? I can’t re-program myself to find men of color more attractive,” some of you might be saying. Actually, you can. As you know, the brain is the largest sexual organ in your body and it’s capable of amazing growth. Think of it like learning a new language, better still, think of it like unlearning a racist one. In social psychology there is a theory called The Mere-Exposure Effect. Simply put, the more we are exposed to someone, the more attractive they become to us. See? There’s hope for you after all! You can decide how best to “expose” yourself however you want but please, for the good of us POC who have to share this community with you, get to work. As gay men of color we get more than enough discrimination from the rest of the world. We don’t need the friendly fire from you.

In a chilling interview in St Petersburg, Budeikin was asked if he really pushed teenagers to their deaths.

'Yes,' he said. 'I truly was doing that. Don't worry, you'll understand everything. Everyone will understand.

'They were dying happy. I was giving them what they didn't have in real life: warmth, understanding, connections.'

He denied reports that there had been as many as 130 teenagers.

The lethal game called Blue Whale involves brainwashing vulnerable teenagers over a period of 50 days, urging them to complete tasks from watching horror movies to waking at strange hours, and self harming.

'There were 17 of them,' he said but also claimed another 28 were 'ready' to take their lives.

'There were also those with whom I was simply communicating, who committed suicide later but without my direct influence.

'There are people - and there is biological waste. Those who do not represent any value for society. Who cause or will cause only harm to society.

'I was cleaning our society of such people. It started in 2013 when I created F57 [online] community. I'd been thinking through this idea for 5 years. It was necessary to distinguish normal [people] from biological rubbish.'
