I had a terrible summer when it comes to my gender dysphoria. It got so intense, right after the Atlantic thing, and then Blood and Visions weirdly made it a lot worse, and all the way through me graduating my dysphoria was killing me. It was SO disheartening, because I’m committed to never doing anything like HRT or cutting my body up, mostly because I’m trying to be in really good shape in my 90’s. But it’s super disheartening when you’re in an episode like that and it feels like it’ll just be your whole life, and the only option is putting up with it or wrecking your pelvic floor.

And then I stopped waitressing. I started working full time as an LPC, suddenly I was going WEEKS without anyone at my workplace making comments about my body. Indeed as an LPC it’s kind of my job, if anyone does make a comment about my body, to make a big deal about boundaries and what boundaries are appropriate in the therapy room. That is the OPPOSITE of being a waitress/a receptionist/ legal assistant/barback/ working at a union. That’s such a huge difference in my working day.

Then at the same time I finally get feedback in my life that’s proof of my own self-efficacy, in that this long terrible grad school process finally produced a degree.

My gender dysphoria has been, for the past month, on vakay. I barely have been thinking about my body, except if I’m hungry or my back hurts or I’m feeling particularly energized and good. But not those obsessive thoughts about “oh my body is shaped so funny” or “everyone’s looking at my body” or “I can’t do anything in this body” or “I’m trapped in this body.” Guys and gyns, me barely thinking about my body is UNREAL. IT’S SO GOOD. IT’S SO FUN TO NOT THINK THAT MUCH ABOUT THE SHAPE OR APPEARANCE OF MY BODY.

What’s even crazier about not thinking that much about my body is that for most of September I was having pretty good naked times, and naked times have historically been prime triggers for my gender dysphoria. (The naked times have come to an end, in the calmest and non-distressing breakup I’ve ever experienced, so even though they’re over I still consider the whole thing a win?)

So we go from a July/August crazy intense GD episode to near-extinction in September. My conclusion is I think my GD is so much about stress and self-efficacy. I get those obsessive thoughts when the world has given me lots of feedback that I’m totally powerless. If I’m getting feedback that I’m capable of having some impact in the outer world, and if I’m not only allowed but strongly encouraged to enforce boundaries, my GD seems to want to take a break.

Now, the patterns to my GD don’t mean much about your GD. I’m just saying what do you know about your GD if you haven’t tracked it? Also what would you rather not know about your GD? Are there aspects to your GD you’d really rather not acknowledge?

Because I get it, I get wanting that surgery and wanting that beard and just wanting to plow through and not wait any longer. But what you don’t want to acknowledge will end up fucking you up. You have to force yourself to be super real about your GD. If your therapist is anything like how mine were, they will not force you to be very real about your GD. If the people in the community you know are anything like the people I knew, they will tell you thinking too hard about your GD is internalized transphobia. So this is on you.

Other people have not signed any kind of agreement with a higher power to give you good advice. Other people are not particularly invested in how your life turns out. You are actually the only person responsible for the advice you listen to and the consequences you have to live out because of the advice you chose to listen to. Believe you me, when shit goes south, all those people who told you to jump in and waste no time will swear they didn’t say it like that.

Track your GD for at LEAST a year. Whatever the consequences of taking T are for you, you will live out those consequences for SO MUCH LONGER than a year. Don’t accept your own bullshit, no matter what social incentives there are for accepting your own bullshit. You will create exceptionally dumb and hard situations to have to navigate. In the end no matter how it all pans out the lesson is the same- we create what we end up experiencing. Yes, in a world that is violent and dumb and unfair and a shitpile. But in this shitpile we still make our own choices, and get a lot of data back about what our choices create. Track that data now so you can think a little clearer about what kind of data you want to get a year from now.

Quote# 141493

Homosexuality holds a special distinction as sin because it is the only sin the Bible describes as being the result, and not the cause, of idolatry. Paul makes it clear that homosexuality is the end result a life of gross idolatry that causes God to give them over to a reprobate mind.

So after a long time of God trying to bring them out of their idolatry, God finally gives them over to a reprobate mind that fills them with all the things described in Rom.1:26-31.
"Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful"
Making them that even though they know that those who believe as they do are worthy of death, not only do them, but take pleasure in those who do them with them.
There is no sin like the sin of homosexuality. It is against nature and nature's God. It is full blown idolatry on display.

If you found out he had attempted to rape a 15 year old girl?

Yes, I am referring to the Kavanaugh case.

But really. Lets say you are a parent of a 17 year old boy. You find out thru sources he did it, you confront him. He becomes angry at first but then breaks down sobbing that he did it and he is now really, really, sorry.

What are your options? I can only think of the following:

1. Turn him into the police which will mean a trial and him possibly serving time plus being required to register as a sex offender.
2. Talking things over with the girls parents and working out some sort of resolution where he agrees to apologize and never speak of this again.
3. Nothing. Besides smacking the boy around and vowing to never letting him out of your sight again and hoping this goes away.
4. Moving.
5. Sending him away to go to say a boarding school or to live with another relative.




I'd probably attempt 2, and if that got nowhere, I'd maybe try to get him out of the country. If I even got a hint that 2 might not work, I'd probably try to get him out of the country. I know it's not the right thing, but it's hard to get past those parental instincts.

I'm really opposed to sex offender registries -- they seem like additional post-sentence punishment. Plus, why single out sex offenders? I'd also like to know if a murderer or burglar moved into my neighborhood. The existence of these registries would help me (wrongly) justify to myself that I'm doing the right thing by getting him out of the situation by any means necessary.

Quote# 141490

Is Jesus from the Walking Dead TV show actually the real Jesus?

No, there are multiple ‘saviors’ on the TV Show, but only one in real life.

Not being familiar with this series, I can’t tell whether there are good moral lessons.

It may be helpful to examine just who Jesus was. A man who could say, “Before Abraham was, I AM,” or “I AM the Resurrection and the Life,” but also weep publicly at the death of his friend Lazarus, is no ordinary mortal. If HE was the Messiah, he certainly fulfilled all the prophesies about HIM.

Why would we need the Messiah? Because Adam & Eve disobeyed their Creator, ate of the fruit of the Forbidden Tree, thus committing the Original Sin; a sin so serious that it destroyed grace in their souls, closed Heaven, and was passed on to their descendants. Since the offense was directly against God Himself, it could only be repaired or overcome by a Divine Person, and that Person was Jesus Christ!

Sounds like a fairy tale? No one knows the particulars—what did Adam & Eve look like, [hint: they certainly did not ACT like apes]; what did the Garden of Eden look like; what did the Serpent look like; what kind of fruit did they eat; what did the Tree look like? Or is this some kind of myth produced in order to explain why humans are so different from the other living creatures on this Earth?

There had to be first parents. Of all visible and living creatures, we seem to be the only ones with Free Will. Humans invent, anything from automobiles to pins; brute beasts do not. Humans build houses and skyscrapers; brute beasts build nests and beaver-houses, but each species seems to make the same kind of house—except humans!

Jesus Christ came in order to repair the damage caused by Original Sin. Does the TV show do that? Jesus is called ‘savior’ because HE alone suffered and died for mankind, thus saving us from our sins. Does anyone do this in the TV show?

Hope that helps!

Atheists follow a Satanic religion known as Veganism. Many have become deceived by this false religion (veganism), and have forsaken the religion of truth, Islam. Animals were not created to become our idols or gods, they were created to become our food source and slaves. Our Creator Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has specifically commanded in the Qur'an that a cow that does not produce milk must be slaughtered immediately to feed the poor and hungry. In fact, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala has commanded that animals must obey their human masters. It was recorded in Sahih Bukhari, a baby donkey had kicked it's own master, and as punishment, that donkey was thrown into the lion's den where it was eaten alive by hungry lions. It's soul was then cast into Jahanamm (Hell). Allah Aza Wa Jal created animals for our benefit, and refusing to eat that which Allah has provided is an act of direct disobedience. Vegetarians and Vegans are destined to burn in Jahannam (Hell) because their worship the devil Shaytaan by following his ideology. In Hell, Vegans and Vegatarians shall watch their own animals being tortured and killed by demons while they burn. Islam is very clear about sin. When a person commits a sin, he is placing his entire family at risk of Jahannam (Hell). Sin is a disease, and family members shall inherit the punishment.

Or “Marching Through Georgia” to Southerners who survived the Civil War. It doesn’t have that connection to most modern Southerners, though.

Marching Through Georgia damn sure has that connotation to me, and whenever I hear “battle hymn of the republic” I am thoroughly revolted.

It’s as though the North didn’t quite believe they had actually won, and needed to go on putting down the South. Well, here we are 123 years later, and what has changed?

Nothing.

There’s nobody north of the Mason-Dixon line with the peace chiefs’ wisdom, or Reverend Hart’s moxie.

And rubbing Southerners’ noses in our “heritage” of slavery and cruelty while ignoring the discriminatory behavior going on TODAY in the former “Union” states and expansions thereof — don’t tell me it isn’t happening, and not just to young black men but to Native American women, black women, and Latinx people as well as Hawaiian and Alaskan natives — does nothing to reduce the residual resentment.

As for public blasphemy laws. I am starting to think we should bring them back . To use an old case,back from 1987 a piece of trash art by Andrea Cerrano called P*ss Chr*st which was a crucifix soaked in urine

Now if he wanted this filth in his private home, its not my business nor yours but it was in a publicly funded museum

Anyone with any morals would know better and the proper response to people who undermine and subvert the social fabric that way is jail time and lots of it for public display of such things. Repeat offenders get the gallows

Otherwise you will be subverted and undermined at every opportunity and I’d rather live in authoritarian Christian state than what the Left will bring any time.

Quote# 141482

Emails obtained by the Observer reveal that members of the Tarrant County Republican Party plan to hold a training by notorious Islamophobe John Guandolo at an undisclosed location on December 29 — less than two weeks before the local party is set to vote on whether to oust four of its members, one who is Muslim and another who is married to a Muslim.

The emails, sent by Republican precinct chair Dale Attebery to a group of selected precinct chairs and invitees, bill the training as a six-hour class by Guandolo titled: “School: Islam and Sharia vs. the U.S. Constitution.” Guandolo is an ex-FBI agent living in the Dallas area who makes a living by hawking virulently anti-Islam trainings and DVDs to citizens and law enforcement officials.

In the emails, both sent in late November, Attebury claims that around 100 people will attend the late December training, including precinct chairs, local police and perhaps the chair of the Tarrant County GOP. Attebury promises a “personal presentation by Mr. John Guandolo” that will include “absolute proof on everything presented” and “facts/figures that will frighten you.” Attebury does not disclose the location of the training, citing a “need to keep a level of secrecy for a time.”

Attebury paints an urgent cause for the training. “Because we need to know the truth before January 10, there is no option,” he writes. “Because we are losing Tarrant County [to Muslims], just like Dearborn, MI was lost.”

So what’s happening on January 10? As reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and the Associated Press, the party is voting whether to oust four members, including Dr. Shahid Shafi, the Muslim vice chair of the local GOP, and precinct chair Lisa Grimaldi Abdulkareem, whose husband is Muslim. The vote is the culmination of a long Islamophobic campaign driven by local activists such as Sara Legvold, who has defended apartheid and reposted stories on social media from white supremacist site Stormfront.

Impervious: Not admitting of passage or capable of being affected.

Every soulwinning Christian knows the frustration of witnessing to people who have already decided they will never get saved. I was saddened recently, as I read of the impervious attitude of former president of the United States, Benjamin Franklin, who stated...

"He (the Rev. George Whitefield) used, indeed, sometimes to pray for my conversion, but never had the satisfaction of believing that his prayers were heard." -Franklin's Autobiography.


Tragically, Benjamin Franklin heard sermon after sermon by the mighty preacher, George Whitefield, and yet refused to believe upon Jesus Christ. How sad. So many people, like Benjamin Franklin, hear the Word of God preached over and over; BUT, their hearts are harder than concrete. If you haven't guessed it already, the photo to the right is a jackass, a donkey, which is an appropriate symbol of some people's stubbornness to obey the Word of God.

In Mark Chapter 6, the disciples had just witnessed Jesus feed well over 5,000 hungry people with just 5 loaves of bread, and 2 fishes. The Bible says in Mark 6:44 that the men alone numbered 5,000. Including the wives and children, there must have been over 15,000 people. We know for certain there were at least 5,000. Can you imagine, thousands of people being fed from just one little boy's lunch? What a miracle by a wonderful Savior! Yet, just a short time later in Mark 6:52, we read that the disciples feared, lacking faith ... BECAUSE THEIR HEART WAS HARDENED. Wow! And these were Jesus' disciples! I find it interesting that Jesus' own disciples doubted Him at times. This teaches us that even the best of Christians falter. This is true of every believer. We are all emotional creatures, prone to doubt and wander. This is why it's important that we learn to keep our eyes on Jesus, by living in His Word, which He has given to us.

However, it is an entirely different situation when a man refuses to believe upon Christ as his Savior. The disciples weren't impervious, they were simply immature in the Lord. Their hardened hearts were eventually melted away by the Word of God. To the contrary, Benjamin Franklin was impervious, unable to be reached with the Gospel. Proverb 29:1 states, "He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy." A person only has so many breaths to this life, only so many heartbeats ... and then this earthly life is over forever. Kindly said, Benjamin Franklin was like a jackass, who stubbornly heard the Gospel preached again and again; BUT, HIS HEART WAS HARDENED. No amount of preaching was ever able to reach Benjamin Franklin, because of his impervious heart of unbelief.

Quote# 141478

One weird thing I have noticed about women (yes, this will be a broad generalisation, but it happens all too frequently to not be thing) is that many have a complete inability to acknowledge the consequences of their actions, a disconnect of cause and effect. hence their confusion when they get blowback for whatever they do and say.


it's not just you, I think this is a general thing that has been brought about due to the way the education system and especially universities coddle them. In my opinion, it is less of a gender based thing and more of a class based thing, working class women don't have the time and can't afford to bitch about this stuff and behave this way. Middle/Upper class women however have been so coddled and never been told no or to shut up their whole lives.

Now they're slowly beginning to enter into the real world they've realised that the world doesn't revolve around them and worse. There are people who actually not only disagree with them but openly hate them. Well in their heads the only people who could possibly do that are misogynists and Nazis because those are the only types of people who would disagree with their beliefs.

I'm vividly reminded of a time when some working class waitress who got shit over being white while she was trying to do her job and it was some extremely privileged cunt from Oxford who had been indoctrinated into this shit. Just because he was black, he genuinely thought that she was still privileged despite the fact that he went to fucking Oxford.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/rhodes-must-fall-campaigner-ntokozo-qwabe-oxford-university-claims-cape-town-waitress-white-tears-a7037911.html

He said: "Even if she’s working class, she is linked to whiteness. By virtue of her skin colour, she is privileged.


Now this little incident is where it happened with a man so it's not necessarily gendered, but women I think are more likely to have this sort of mentality. When you understand the ideology though you realise as he states himself, he's black and she's white, therefore she has white privilege, her social status doesn't matter, it's the colour of her skin.

Hope this goes to some way explaining their racist and sexist way of thinking, these are people who come from extraordinarily rich backgrounds or are from communities that are largely cut off from the outside world and don't have to deal with the consequences of the policies they support.

In the world of anti-capitalists and feminists, a black millionaire is more of a victim than a white homeless man.

The fact that children will grow up and question the reality of God is truth. It happened to my own child. I had been like most Christians and was ignorant of the many falsehoods of Christmas as well as so called other Christian days that are celebrated. Because I had lied to my child about the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and Santa when she got older and discovered these fairy tales were false, she questioned my truthfulness of God. I wish I had been smarter in my decisions. So I would say to parents of children: Stop lying to them, it will hurt their relationship with God.

God's promises are true

Can we believe and trust that God keeps His promises. He has promised to be with us always, and His promises are true.

"Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." Hebrews 13:5.

When things in this life seem hopeless and we have problems come our way, even if it looks as if God is far from us. He is with us.

We can trust God's promises, because He does not lie, nor change His mind.

"God is not man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent." Numbers 23:19.

Many times when God seems so far away, He is actually carrying us.

God knows what we are going through and we can trust Him to be with us.

He never promised that our way will always be easy and no problems, but our greatest comfort is knowing that He is with us, no matter what.

We can be assured that God's promises are true.

Quote# 141473

Then there's Brian Wilson's song, God Only Knows. Although the song didn't become popular at the time, it has become an icon of the Beach Boys. The song is extremely popular nowadays and is cherished worldwide. The only problem is that Brian Wilson isn't sure there is a God. When asked by interviewer, Andrew Schwartz, "Are you thinking about God these days?", Wilson replied:

"I think about God, yes, and I wonder if there is a God. And if there is a God, will God please help me through my hard trips." —SOURCE, INTERVIEW: Backtalk with Brian Wilson


I find it utterly disturbing that any individual could sing about a God he's not sure exists. To make matters even more freakish, Wilson states...

"...I've gone beyond him (Phil Spector) now. I'm doing the spiritual sound, a white spiritual sound. Religious music ... That's the whole movement. That's where I'm going. It's going to scare a lot of people ... That's where I'm going and it's going to scare a lot of people when I get there."

—Brian Wilson quoted in Jules Siegel's article, Goodbye Surfing Hello God!


Here's a guy who wants to produce religious music; but isn't sure if God exists. Interestingly, Brian Wilson in the quote above speaks of a "white spiritual sound"; which is a deviation from his "dark stuff" mentioned in the quote below. But, ironically, Wilson is still unsure of God's existence. I want you to notice carefully here that you can sing witchcraft or religious music, and still be totally void and ignorant of God and His Word. Wilson hasn't found God, he's found religion; and religion is the most godless thing on the planet. You need Jesus Christ Mr. Wilson; not religion.

"We were doing witchcraft, trying to make witchcraft music." —Brian Wilson quoted in Nick Kent's The Dark Stuff (pg.27.)


Everyone reading this article needs to be warned about the evil music of Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys. Obviously, Wilson is NOT a born again Christian; but, rather, is a child of Satan (Ephesians 2:2). It is frightening when people, who don't even know if God exists, write "spiritual" music for the masses to listen to. Brian Wilson is of the world, and the world receives their own (John 15:19). Wilson is the enemy of God (James 4:4).

We get that think this was a serious crime. We get that you would had your child (if you had one; which it's obvious you don't) you'd have your own child thrown in prison and put your own son on (in your own words) "a sex offenders list". We get that you would have your own 14 year old son "prosecuted and ostracized".

See, most of us who are REALLY parents have a more rational way dealing with family problems; and that is to discipline, counsel, punish, and (when necessary, get our children help. You're the type that feels you have some right to inject yourself into the business of other peoples' families. You think you have some sort of ownership over peoples' lives. Most of us just want to get through our family issues, and YES, cover up our dirty laundry because, quite frankly.............. IT'S NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS. The Duggars dealt with it in their own way. How they dealt with it worked for them. The kids went on with NORMAL lives with their own families and don't need people like you coming along and trying to dictate to them how they should deal with their own problems.

You try to portray yourself as some conservative libertarian, when it's blatantly clear that you're nothing but a progressive,government-involved-in-everything, activist, busybody.




Everyone huh? By my count most have no opinion or are staying out of it and there are 4 or 5 on each side. But you can count that as 'everyone' if you want

You have made your point clear too. You would hide your son's criminal activity even when he repeats it numerous times and violates 5 different grls and you would teach him to not take personal responsibility for his actions.

Yes, I would hide my 14 year old son's 'criminal' activity because it's none of your damn business. You're a damn busybody thinking you're entitled to know what a family's 14 year old kid is doing. What happens in my house is my own business and how I deal with it is none of your business. What you fail to realize is how the Duggars dealt with Josh worked for them. They got Josh the help he needed and it worked. You'd have your kid in prison and deemed a pedophile for life. That just freaks me out that you'd be that kind of parent. I hope the hell you never have kids, because you're in for a rude awakening. But even this is a waste of time because you think you have it all figured out.

Now you go on and have the last word (because I know you just can't stand to have someone else have the last word), because I'm done with your ignorance and nonsense.

"From Whence the Madness?"



Delusion: noun: perceiving that which does not exist. It's the just desserts of those who scoff at a certain Good Book, who won't admit their slavish devotion to its principal nemesis, the god of this world.

Enter a most unexpected roadblock to the plans of their one-world messiah. His election could not have happened without divine providence, a fact that earns him the rabid hate of all to whom truth is like pulling a cross on Dracula. He contends with a malevolent media wholly prostrate before a certain political party.

Having evicted truth, they embrace Delusion, that masked lover whose poison whispering waltzes them ever farther leftward, over a cliff into uncharted realms of insanity. These enlightened elites obsess over banning plastic straws while violent illegals try to storm the border fence. Their word police demand 'you guys' be replaced by the gender-gutted 'y'all'. The list of said genders now tops 57 in that ongoing effort by Nemesis to undo all that was wrought by the Creator.

America, last obstacle to the globalist pipe dream, rots from within, courtesy of a certain party having well earned such sobriquets as Dims and Demoncraps. Having fraudulently taken the House, they now face the novel situation of having to actually do something, in lieu of impotently sniping away from the sidelines. Their self-serving agenda, of course, is endless and pointless investigations in support of the unholy 'resistance', better translated as 'communist coup'.

At this point, the enemies of freedom have outgrown the playpen. The place they've gone makes our traditional stage seem normal by comparison, a set we've always known as. . . .The Twilight Zone.

"But you actually imagine that merely spouting words with no evidence whatsoever that they are remotely true means ANYTHING?"

Oh, but there is lots of evidence. Creation itself screams that there is a Creator. And the Bible itself proves who God is by it's ever constant prophetic fulfillments.
Did you know that the Bible says there would come a time when all buying and selling would be done with a mark that would include the numbers 666? And that these numbers are the main part in the barcode system we use for.... wait for it..... buying and selling?
And Jesus fulfilled hundreds of specific prophecies when He came. Born in Bethlehem. Born of a virgin. Would be a Nazareth. Etc etc etc... A statistical impossibility that happened in just His life. Let alone all of the other prophecies that show God is who He says He is. No other book like it in the world.
Because you are ignorant of these and so much more does not make them "no evidence whatsoever".

In a 2014 debate when he was running for the U.S. Senate, acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker said judges should have a Christian worldview, and that a judge with a “secular worldview” would be problematic, according to reports from that time.

Whitaker was answering a question. Erickson had asked the candidates “what criteria” they would use to block President Obama’s judicial nominees. One candidate, Sam Clovis, said he would vote for judges who could link “natural law” to the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, Basu wrote.

Mark Jacobs said he would look for someone who would "not legislate from the bench." Joni Ernst echoed that view, adding the judge would need to understand that America's laws "all came from God."

But Whitaker went the farthest: "Natural law often times is used from the eye of the beholder and what I would like to see — I'd like to see things like their world view, what informs them. Are they people of faith? Do they have a biblical view of justice? — which I think is very important because we all know that our government ..."

"Levitical or New Testament?" interrupted Erickson.

“I’m a New Testament,” continued Whitaker. “And what I know is as long as they have that world view, that they’ll be a good judge. And if they have a secular world view, where this is all we have here on Earth, then I’m going to be very concerned about that judge.”

We sneer at the ancients for their worship of the sun, thinking ourselves too sophisticated for such things.

But we’re tricked into sun-worship by modern purveyors of science.

They place the sun in the center of our system, teach us to fear it and revere it.

And we obey.

democrats are the party of rape.

They want to put frat boys in prison for consensual sex with a drunk girl, but when it comes to violent, forced rape, the democrats are full on proponent. Just check out the threads on the Muslim rape jihad and you'll see all the forum leftists defending rape tooth and claw.

democrats are promoters of violent, forcible rape.




In the 2012 Todd Akin spoke of "real rape." The democrats savaged him for it. Now democrats are the party of rape, so it's not surprising.

Akin was right of course. What the left calls "rape" involves generally young people who drink too much or use drugs and end up having sex. If the girl regrets the sex then the boy is put in prison and called a "rapist." The left has created a climate of fear in what is essentially a Victorian era attack on normal sexual activity,

But rape, real rape, is a violent act. It's more about power and domination than it is about sex. And of course the left, the democrats, are major apologists and supporters of violent, forcible rape. Muslims are victimizing women all across Europe, but the democrats demand we be culturally sensitive and not complain.

The left is at war against women, and rape is just a political toy for them. If it can be used to create fear and oppression on American campuses, then the faux-rape will be pushed to absurdity. The goal is the neuter American men and create an environment of fear. But real rape is also a tool for the left. Real rape leaves women traumatized and often scarred for life. But the left excuses it as a cultural expression by their Islamist allies.

Quote# 141455

The business community of Las Vegas, Nevada, has recently spent a lot of money advertising the slogan … “What HAPPENS In Vegas, STAYS In Vegas!!!” As a result, business has boomed in Las Vegas! People are enticed with the thrill of pleasuring themselves with sexual sins, gambling, booze, and many other forms of wickedness. God sees the evil and Romans 1:32 tells us God will judge sinners.

The Casinos of Sin City U.S.A. are filled with gamblers, prostitution is a major attraction in Nevada (legal and illegal), escort services are always looking for more whores to defile themselves for money, booze and illegal drugs flow through Vegas like rain through a gutter in a thunderstorm, strip joints are everywhere, homosexuality is commonplace—and God is angry with AMERICA!

Americans can’t seem to get enough of SIN CITY! Everywhere we turn, we are bombarded with advertisements to come to Sin City, where one can indulge in wickedness and sexual immorality, and no one will ever know. But don’t be fooled friend, God knows! Not only does God know what sins you are committing, He’s keeping track of them in Heaven … in a BOOK!

“…and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works” —Revelation 20:12


What kind of works has God written down about you? What kind of works will God be writing down about you in the months and years to come (i.e., if you’re alive)? Don’t believe the satanic lie that your sins will stay in Las Vegas—THEY WILL NOT!

Las Vegas is so evil that the official logo of their Chamber of Commerce is… SIN CITY! The Old Testament cities of Sodom and Gomorrah weren’t anywhere near as evil as Las Vegas. The inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah didn’t have a Bible, or the exposure to the truth that we have today. Men have since sought out many evil inventions (Ecclesiastes 7:29). They didn’t have all the pornography in Sodom that exists today. America is much more accountable to God than Sodom and Gomorrah. America has been blessed with many mighty preachers, Bible-colleges, Christian radio stations, Christian books, Gospel hymns, Christian publishers, and Bible-believing churches everywhere. Sodom and Gomorrah had none of these!

[Bolding added.]

Trans patients were called last week and informed their long-awaited top surgery had been cancelled to let more cancer mastectomies happen. It’s not their responsibility.

Our surgery is not cosmetic.
