Politics of the Alexandria Library

The Scripture informs us that one of the sons of Japhet, the son of Noah, was called Javan Gen. 10:2. He was the founder of the Greek nation. Greece in ancient time was known to have descended from Javan. It was Phillip of Macedonia who united the scattering Greek states. He was assassinated in 336 BC'S and consequently, his son, Alexander, ascended the throne and eventually became the star general of the world. In 332 BC during his campaign in North Africa, he founded the city of Alexandria.9 For over a thousand years, Alexandria remained the capital of Egypt.10 It was one of the most prosperous cities of the ancient world. Its prosperity included learning. Alexandria harboured the largest library in antiquity." Alexandrian library might have harboured information such that could have frustrated the birth of evolutionism. There was some wealth of information stacked in that library that could have answered some puzzling questions, especially issues that relate to creation and religion.

The great library preserved more than 700,000 books of antiquity. Goodasave reports that there were two "royal libraries" that boasted of those collections: one was named Serapeum containing 300,000 volumes, while the other, Bruchion, housed 400,000 volumes.'2 The library had quite a lot to offer the ancient world as observed by Goodasave:

The Alexandrian Library was also a research institute and a university that had full facilities teaching mathematics, science, literature, philosophy and medicine. There was an astronomical observatory, a chemical laboratory, a botanical and zoological garden and500-bed hospital with a huge surgical theatre for operations and dissection.

History informs us that this wealth of knowledge was destroyed. The library was established by Ptolemy I Soler. After him, his son, Ptolemy II Philadelphus assembled more books to beef up the collections.14 Unfortunately, the Alexandrian Library with all its custody of ancient and rare history, was destroyed. The destruction was politically motivated. The dragon, in history, was successful in using politics to suppress truth. Truth can be suppressed but not destroyed.

In 47 BC, during Julius Caesars campaign against the followers of Emperor Pompey, the fire that was set to destroy the Egyptian warships spread through the library. About 40,000 books were destroyed in that fire outbreak. Emperor Lucius Domitius, in AD 272 ordered the burning of the Library. In AD 391, Emperor Theodosius also burned the Library. Finally, it was destroyed by militant Muslims in AD 640 under the Caliph Umarl.

The systematic destruction of the Alexandrian Library is an indication that there must have been some invaluable documents that could have substantiated truth as revealed in the Holy Scriptures. Such truth as the creation of the world and the Biblical deluge; and the division in languages that encouraged the post-deluge race to scatter over the face of the earth, must have attracted the wrath of the dragon. The truth of the matter is that the Renaissance of the 13th century AD, was not really the birth of learning. Men and women of antiquity believed in the divinity, although the dragon corrupted their understanding of God's real nature.

Unconsccrated politicians became powerful tools in the hand of Satan. Julius Caesar was a pagan. The civil war between him and emperor Pompey's loyalists led to the burning of over 40,000 books in the Library. Emperor Lucius Domitius was an idol worshipper, a tool in the hand of evil spirits. He burned the library in AD 272; likewise, Emperor Theodosius I—a pagan king. In AD 391, he ordered for the destruction of the library. What the dragon could not accomplish through religious manipulations, he employed the political powers of the state. In the name of religion in AD 640, the caliph Umar I led militant Muslims to wipe out from Alexandria whatever had been spared of the library. Thousands of years of scholarship were thus buried in the dust bin of history through political and religious maneuverings.

The Word of God, the Holy Scripture, is also one of the books of antiquity reaching the present generation. At about 1500 BC, Moses wrote the Pentateuch (the five books of Moses). The power of God protected and preserved the scriptures. The discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls of the scriptures has demonstrated the protective care of God over the holy scrolls. The scrolls were located at Qumran in a monastic ruin probably belonging to the Essenes sect.

Notwithstanding the efforts made by the dragon to frustrate some knowledge harboured by the Alexandrian library, the Word of God remains intact, protected by holy angels. There were other attempts made by the dragon, through political instigations, to monitor and frustrate the first advent of the Messiah.

[On a video titled "How to Avoid a Gay Waiter"]

If I ever go to a restaurant, you sit down, and then here comes this flamin' foo-foo, fruit loop, right, and you're like "Oh great". I'm here to have date night, enjoy some time with my wife, and I can't, because of the lisps, I can't even, you know. My recommendation (if you don't just get up and leave), my recommendation is just, don't order anything. "Well here, let me get you a drink." No, just wait. Just wait. And you sit there patiently and you look around. And you will find a lady that looks like a mom that looks like a very diligent worker; you will find somebody that you notice that's busy that's doing stuff. You say, "Yeah, that's the one right there." You walk up to 'em, and you say, "Hey, what's your name? Have we had you before? Can we get you over here?" Now look, don't lie. Don't say, "Oh, we've had you! You're great! I know you're the best", right? Just say, "What's your name? Have we had you before? Can we get you over here?" And I guarantee it always works. "Oh yeah, no problem, I'll get the manager, I'll get the hostess to move me around." And then you can enjoy your dinner, and hey, you better tip her well. Let that foo-foo know what he missed out on. [Several congregation members laughing and saying things like "Yeah!" and "Amen!"]

Tele Man:

Relative to defense of our Faith from all manner of pagan, be it the Cathlo satanist (Matt. 12:30), Episcopalian cowardly nancyboy, homo-loving Lutheran, or the Cathlic wannabe Russkie faux-Orthodox, the true Christian is always ready to rebuke their heresies. Just not by engaging in debate! Why? Because Jesus hates debate as He relayed to us via Paul in Romans 1. Because we are not to be yoked with the unbelievers. 2 Cor 6:14-17. Because we are to reject the heretic (1 Tit 3:10)!

Do not confuse proper Biblical instruction to the heathen with a debate. We rebuke their foolishness and refute their heathenism, just same as Paul did. Just like yours truly been doing in the New York City with my ministry to the f@ggot. Should Brother T debate with the sodomite relative to the later's worship of feces, or do we mock and rebuke them as Paul done at Mars Hill?

Quote# 142099

There is a witch hunt on the internet, an angry obsessed mob of ungodly critics, bottom-feeders and trolls, who hate Pastor Jack Hyles and his entire family. It has become a feeding frenzy of bizarre claims, blatant lies and lunatics! An ungodly person focuses on any negative aspect of a person's life to destroy them, while deliberately overlooking the thousands of positive things and admirable accomplishments of the same individual. Thankfully, when God judges each Christian, He is going to look at the whole life, the big picture, and not just the few sins or mistakes that the person made. Praise God for His fairness. 1st Peter 4:17, “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” Far too many people place them self in the position of judge, jury and executioner, which is NO ONE'S right to do concerning sin, except God alone (James 4:12).

I refuse to live without love, I must have it! I cannot live without loving everyone. It matters not if people love me back, and most don't, but I have a need to express God's love for every creature! The apostle Paul said that the more he loved others, the less he was loved in return. 2nd Corinthians 12:15, “And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.” I became a lonely man long ago, loving others beyond their capacity to reciprocate that love. I wouldn't have it any other way! I would 10,000 times rather love people, than not love others with God's unconditional love. Who am I that a King should bleed and die for? People can be difficult to love, but at the end of the day, as a redeemed child of God, my conscience as a Christian will not allow for anything else than forgiveness and love. I choose to let things go, and forgive, and love, and let every day be a new day, looking ahead in the Lord. I sometimes have to block people out, because they are too negative in their e-mails, attacking me with their hateful words, but I love them anyway in the Lord. If God can love a woeful sinner like me, then I can love others as God commands me to do (Matthew 22:39).

This doesn't mean that I don't contend for the faith, which is a necessity, but I love those whom I refute, sincerely. ...

Ephesians 4:15, “But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.”

Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”


Anytime you tell THE TRUTH, you will make enemies. Telling the truth sometimes splits a church! For that very reason, and this is tragic, many churches and pastors in today's apostate generation refrain from telling the truth, lest they risk a church split. Ladies and gentlemen, the Lord Jesus Christ Himself warned that NO MAN can serve God and mammon (Luke 16:13). The Bible tells us that many of the chief rulers believed on the Lord (meaning they got saved), but they did not confess Him, because they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God (John 12:42-43).

There has never been a man greater than John the Baptist (Matthew 11:11), because John prepared the way for the coming of THE GREATEST of all, the blessed Lamb of God (John 1:29). John lived out in the wilderness, not dependant upon people for his food, clothing and necessities. Therefore, John could preach the truth without worry over how he would survive. God only knows how many preachers have been starved out by an angry pulpit committee in a church. In his youth, Pastor Jack Hyles didn't receive a salary for eight week, because the bigshots in the church were trying to starve him out. ...

In 1945, Brother Hyles became the pastor at the Grange Hall Baptist Church in Marshall, Texas. They didn't pay him for the first 8-weeks, and when he did get paid, his salary was $20 a week. In his sermon titled “Good Ol' God,” Dr. Hyles says that during those 8-weeks that the church deacons refused to pay him, he bought a push-lawnmower and cut the grass of church members for $1 to $2 to keep food on the table. He faithfully pastored that church and walked with God. Oh, how we need to get back to old-time Christianity in our churches today.


I also decided as a young preacher that I would tell the truth, even if it offends people and costs me fake friends. As Dr. Hyles says, there's no such thing as losing a “friend.” It is not the preacher's duty to make friends and influence people, but to speak THE TRUTH!

Never loose faith in God and never forget him.
Our Faith in God opens our senses to pierce past the illusion which is this world and see the world for what it truly is.
Take regular trips to Synagogue and Churches.
Always read the Torah Texts and Holy Bible, for they carry a greater wisdom and understanding if you truly see it.
Remember, Science is not meant to disprove God, it is a means of communicating an understanding God. Science is good, God gave us reasoning skills, why not use them to better humanity.
Avoid Leftist, “Gender fluid” Atheists… such people have hearts which are poisoned and wield corrupted wills… for their fantasy spits on the very face of Creation itself… and would halt the progression and faith of humanity, thus create humanity’s downfall.
Scientifically speaking, it is obvious that we all evolve and adapt over time. When it comes to whether evolution created humanity, that is a complete lie, no true solid proof.
In Science, Nothing is True, for anything can be proven wrong, given as how the splitting of the Atom is a prime example of nothing is true in science.

In the end, it is up to you do find a path to follow. I cannot choose for you. Knowledge will give you the clairvoyance you need. Clairvoyance is a metaphorical reference to being able to see the strings to see past the constructs of the world and to truly see the beauty of creation.

Only then can you every be wise and free.

Don't be Afraid. Trust in God. For he is the way to the Truth and the Light.

EDIT: Good Question. Many Answers are below are hilarious. To see Atheist filled sight such self-righteous fury. Damn. I thought they were scientists. Not radicals.

Regarding government employees going to food banks during the shutdown

Lowlifes. They live a lifetime on the public dole as their Statist government games the Public Treasury, leaving it with multi-trillions of dollars of debt that will never be repaid and that also rapidly devalues the currency we all get "paid" in, then they run to foodbanks set up for actual poor people and overwhelm them with their "need" because they never put away a nest egg while the money was coming in and they were busy living the expected American Lifestyle of nice houses, nice cars, good restaurants, and lots of entertainment, all the while trusting their criminal government to take care of their every want to the detriment of all the people not getting government money. Screw them to hell.

I'm sure their criminal government will set up 70% tax rates so they can get paid and go on with their partying and debt binge.

so, here's the thing G2
Forced sterilization, right? I'm down with that. But who among us, gets to make those decisions? Who says who can procreate? I don't want that burden. Do you?

Should it be in the hands of the people? If everyone had equal opportunity to the body of knowledge that would enable them to make those decisions wisely, that's where I'd want that power to be.

there's no judgement needed.
For example: A deer eats fermented apples, gets drunk, falls into a gulch, breaks its leg and gets eaten by predators. A squirrel walks across the top of an electrical transformer, gets zapped. Neither of them gets to reproduce. As a result you don't see so many stupid deer or squirrels.

So: A human drives drunk, wraps his car around a tree, but we're nice so we don't let him die. A human doesn't turn off a power circuit when wiring up an outlet, gets zapped, but we're nice so we don't let him die.

The standard is simple and wholly objective: if in the state of nature you would have died from whatever-it-is, we'll be nice and keep you alive, but you'll be sterilized so you don't reproduce.

No judgement calls needed. Any lifesaving medical intervention comes along with an extra snip or two.

And you can be sure this will also make people more mindful and cautious, in other words, make them behave more intelligently.

Otherwise we are breeding for stupidity, the results of which are amply obvious.

The logic of this is inescapable.

Dear Friends,

Allow me to proudly present our website where you can read the latest information on the activities of Jobbik Movement for a Better Hungary. Three decades have passed since Hungary stepped on the path of European integration. Back then we were dreaming about becoming a member of a successful community resting on solid foundations. However, our continent is now nearly torn apart by conflicting interests. Today’s European Union is characterized by crises while Hungary echoes with the ideological disputes of the past. What we aim for Europe is to once again become a fair continent that shows solidarity and respects its Christian values the way it was envisioned by the founding fathers of European integration. As for Hungary, we want it to become a free, democratic and competitive country, just as we wished for at the time when Communism collapsed. Come with us!

Best regards,

It's simple. By healing our chakras and spiritual-bodies, which is
where the root causes of disease takes place, we can cure almost anything.

Humans have seven chakras, which are like vortexes
up and down the spinal-column. Chakra means "wheels."

We have the root, sacral, solar-plexus, heart, throat, third-eye and crown-chakras.

Humans also have four main spiritual-bodies. Those are the etheric (electronic-template),
the astral-body (which governs emotions), mental-body (personality) and rainbow-body
which houses our soul-records.

HEADLINE: Louis C.K. Exposes Himself Unfunny, Racist Jerkoff Creep´

Audio surfaced this weekend of rightly disgraced comedian Louis C.K. performing a set at a Levittown, New York, club on December 16. The timing was unfortunate because C.K.'s career just missed inclusion on all the 2018 celebrity deaths lists.

After finally admitting, against his will, to repeatedly masturbating in front of women comics against their will, C.K. promised to "now step back and take a long time to listen." It was like the intro to a sex offender version of "The Real World." It seems he's spent that year listening to right-wing media and stewing in his own bile. His December act was repulsive and cruel. It's not the product of self-reflection but incensed rage that he has been held mildly accountable for his actions.

Where do you start with such garbage? How about where he implicitly blames women -- you know, the people he victimized -- for the PC culture that he doubtless believes led to his downfall. In the minds of men like C.K., it is always nagging women, or emasculated men, telling them what they can or can't say.
"I was kind of excited to be in my 50s and see people in their 20s and be like, 'You're crazy! these kids are nuts,' but they're not! They're fuckin' like 'Nyeaah.' They're just boring. Fuckin' tellin' ,' You shouldn't say that.' What are you? An old lady? What the fuck are you doing? 'Nyeeah, that's not appropriate.' Fuck you. you're a child.' "


I dunno. I think if you're a grown man who's "confused" about the appropriateness of masturbating in front of women in a professional setting, you probably should consider listening to children. They are clearly smarter than you. It really bothers C.K. that he's well into mid-life and the best he's accomplished are some records in long-distance semen propulsion. He takes aim at overall better humans like the survivors of the Parkland school shooting. It hasn't been a year yet since a deranged gunman killed their classmates in front of them but that doesn't stop C.K. from putting them in their place.
"You're not interesting because you went to a high school where kids got shot. Why does that mean I have to listen to you? How does that make you interesting? You didn't get shot, you pushed some fat kid in the way!"


I believe young people who respond to tragedy with resilience and determination to make things better for others are inherently more interesting than the writer/director of Pootie Tang. As Jay Smooth would say, C.K. is just being "wrong on purpose." He's a needy little boy trying to get attention, but he's not dropping his pants in the middle of class. No, he's callously attempting to monetize the suffering and struggles of others.
C.K. doesn't drop the mic after mocking children. He has more cruelty to spread. He goes after marginalized people who have the audacity to believe they deserve respect.
"They tell you what to call them – 'You should address me as they, them, because I identify as gender neutral.' Oh okay, okay. 'You should address me as there, because I identify as a location, and the location is your mother's cunt.'"


He also gifts us with more of his hipster racism. I've never understood why I'm supposed to appreciate racist jokes as somehow trenchant and brilliant because the comedian went to Harvard and doesn't wear a white hood (that we know of). I don't know why this form of bullying became synonymous with "art" or why anyone thinks it's brave to mock the suffering or struggles of others, suffering and struggling that they'll never share.
My life is over. I don't give a shit. You can, you can be offended, it's OK. You can get mad at me. Anyway. So why do black guys have big dicks? Let's talk about that for a minute.


Oh boo hoo! Those awful women ruined your life, so now you have nothing to lose by being a racist creep. He should also lose his Emmys. You can hear this crap at a bowling alley.
You know why Asian guys have small dicks? Cause they're women. They're not dudes. They're all women. All Asians are women. And they have big clits, and when they have sex they just stick their clits in each other's pussies and they procreate using math.

No, that was real, he really said it.

Peak tranny is the best redpill (yeah yeah, I'll see myself back to reddit) the world has gotten lately. Despite what the media would have you believe, the transfreak agenda is incredibly unpopular across demographics - race, sex, religion, citizens around the world, basically everybody is sick of being expected to coddle the politically-activated mentally ill.

Now is the time to tie the femenazis that brought us the sobraves to that anchor and let them sink with it. Every time there's a discussion of how the trannies have gone even further off the rails and are harassing, deplatforming, and violently physically attacking this or that person of whatever political persuasion who deviated even a little from the latest approved unquestionable truth, people need to be there reminding the horrified masses that this is not an accident, that this is the continuation of a long history of feminazi bullying and trial by media/trial by bureaucracy. 80% of the population has already been victims of this themselves at some point in college or in the workplace. Remind them that this is just more of the same, the next logical step, in a cultural takeover plan. This is organized, this is intentional, this is not some emergent phenomenon coming out of chaos, there are "people" who are planning, overseeing, and profiting from this. Remind them that no matter what they do, no matter how much of a woke af ally they style themselves as, sooner or later they will run afoul of the party and the stasi will come for them.

Personally, I hope this continues to degenerate as it's looking to inevitably do. It needs to get worse, more and more people need to feel the pain more and more frequently. When the snap comes, it needs to be as violent as possible.

Outcry as wombat in ad mistaken for a pig

PETALING JAYA • Do you know what a wombat is? Some Malaysians apparently do not, according to The Star daily yesterday.

It said Kuala Lumpur City Hall had to temporarily remove an advertisement from an electronic billboard at Bukit Bintang because some people had mistaken a wombat featured in it for a pig.

There was an outcry on social media after a screenshot of the animal in a traditional Malay outfit went viral. A message accompanying the screenshot said it featured a "pig wearing a songkok and baju Melayu while accompanied by a Selamat Hari Raya greeting".

Agreeing that the animal featured was a wombat, Mayor Ahmad Phesal Talib said: "An irresponsible person perceived it as a pig and spread false rumours on the Internet which led to the public misconception."

The advertisement was placed by Servcorp, an Australia-based company offering serviced offices in the region, which uses a wombat in suit called "Sidney" as its mascot.


Kuala Lumpur City Hall has had to temporarily remove an ad of a wombat in a traditional Malay outfit from an electronic billboard. PHOTO: TWITTER
Sidney has been touted by the company as the "world's wisest wombat", and it even has its own Facebook page as well as website.

The company yesterday issued an apology on its Facebook page for "any confusion caused".

"It would seem some people mistook the wombat for a pig and during the holy month of Ramadan, this might lead to some sensitivities," the statement said.

The company added that it had no intention to offend any race or religion although it noted that there were no prior issues with the use of its mascot anywhere else in the world, including in the Middle East.

Pork is considered haram, or forbidden, by the Muslims, who form about 60 per cent of Malaysia's population.

Native to Australia, wombats are marsupials, like kangaroos, wallabies and koalas.

India politician under fire for calling rival ‘worse than a transgender person’

A politician in India is getting criticism after referring to her opponent as “worse than a transgender person.”

Sadhana Singh, who represents Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the regional Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly, made the comments at a rally on December 19.
?
The elected politician had taken aim at Kumari Mayawati, the head of the rival Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), for entering an anti-BJP pact in the region with the Samajwadi Party (SP).

According to the Mumbai Mirror, Sadhana said: “Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati sold her dignity for power and joined hands with those who disrespected her… She is a blot on womankind.

“Cannot say if she can be counted among men or women, she is worse than a transgender person.”

The comments alluded to a 1995 violent incident in which BSP chief Mayawati was briefly held hostage by SP supporters.
Sadhana Singh criticised by India political leaders

The remarks led to a wave of criticism, with the National Commission for Women demanding an explanation from the politician.

BSP leader Satish Chandra Mishra said that it shows “the level BJP has sunk to,” adding: “They do not have strength to win even a single seat in Uttar Pradesh.”

SP leader Akhilesh Yadav said: “These kind of derogatory comments are grossly unacceptable.

“It is a sign of BJP’s moral bankruptcy and desperation. This is also an insult to the women of the country.”

Sadhana Singh told News18 that she does not regret the comments, again accusing Mayawati of letting down “all women” by working with the SP.

However, she added in a statement: “My intention was not to insult anyone… I apologise if my words have caused grief to anyone.”

Sanskrit is called the “mother of all languages” and though Western science dates its origin to the 3rd or 4rth century BC, ancient Indian texts take it thousands of years before the Vedas were written. The language was the first ever to exist in the form of speaking and then in the form of script that developed into Brahmi script. It spread from India to China where they whole heartedly regard Sanskrit to be the source of their regional languages. There are two kinds of languages, major and minor. German, French, Dutch, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese etc are all major languages and English is a minor language, being a culmination of all of them as it is easily seen that every English word has its origins in another language. Sanskrit has been known to be the source of 36 international languages not including the 21 in India itself. Many linguistic and nations agree that most of their words have been derived from Sanskrit and in the right sense, Sanskrit is the source of all major languages and the origin of language as we know it

Germany, among many others, is a modern nation that has openly applauded the genius of Sanskrit and has created universities that are solely for the purpose of understanding the language. With their association with the Aryans in the past, Germans are proud to regard Sanskrit as the source of German language. Many German words find their source in Sanskrit, for example, famous German airlines “Lufthansa” can be broken down into ‘luft’ meaning lost and ‘hansa’ meaning swan and the word literally means the ‘lost swan’. This can be traced back to an ancient species of swans that symbolized spirituality in India that is not seen in today’s world anymore. Rules of French language also derive their source from Sanskrit.

MAS apologises over inflight magazine's 'pork image'

Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has apologised over the alleged publication of a pork cuisine in its January edition of its inflight magazine Going Places.

"In the advertisement... the January edition of Going Places published restaurants that provide variety of foods which are part of the menu," the national carrier said in a statement.

"The images featured slices of Wagyu beef and cuttlefish. Just like other lifestyle magazines, the review of the restaurant was meant to promote the eateries for passengers all over the world," MAS was quoted by Sinar Harian as saying.
It then apologised and said it has no intention to offend any party.

MAS' statement came after several NGOs slammed the national airline for being insensitive by publishing the pork cuisine.

Yesterday, Abd Aziz Abdul Rahman, former MAS managing director, was reported as saying such a move was inappropriate as MAS carried the national image.

Australian politician Mark Latham pledges to gut transgender rights

Australian One Nation politician Mark Latham has unveiled a series of new anti-transgender policy pledges.

Latham was once the leader of Australia’s centre-left Labor Party, but is now a member of the nationalist One Nation party, which he leads in New South Wales.
?
Ahead of state elections in March, Latham has focused on transgender children, pledging to support a ban on them transitioning at school without permission from a doctor.

Mark Latham attacks ‘attention-seeking’ transgender children

In a January 20 policy announcement, Latham claimed: “One of the problems with gender fluidity in schools is that students can participate in it simply by ‘identifying’ as transgender.

“This leaves the system open to abuse, with some students milking transgender identification for special treatment or attention-seeking reasons.”

The politician added: “This problem is increasingly common in NSW high schools, urged on by Left-wing political activists.

“Schools made a big mistake when they stopped being places of learning and ventured into the world of mental health assessment and radical gender theory.”

He continued: “One Nation supports teachers who want a stable, productive learning environment in their school, avoiding the Mad Hatter situation and the powerlessness of staff.”

“Any student wanting to change their gender should have to present specialist medical advice and support to the school.

“This takes the matter out of the hands of students and gives teachers the State Government support they need to deal effectively with disingenuous and disruptive behaviour concerning gender.

“It also addresses the real mental health issue: bringing confusion and harm to young people by telling them gender is ‘socially constructed’ and ‘fluid’.”
One Nation’s Mark Latham wants to gut gender recognition laws

Latham also vowed to gut laws that allow transgender people to gain legal recognition in their chosen gender, and end easy legal recognition on all government forms.

Mirroring the policy stance taken by US President Donald Trump, he said: “In reality, with very few exceptions, people are born either male or female. To move away from this biological truth later in life is a serious matter requiring specialist medical evidence. It should not happen because of Leftist ideology, individual whims or novelty factors.

“One Nation does not believe that gender changes should be self-identified on NSW Government forms, permits and licences, such as those processed by Service NSW: agencies including Roads and Maritime Services, Department of Fair Trading and Births Deaths and Marriages.”

He added: “One Nation supports the introduction of a government rule across-the-board prohibiting individual self-identification.”

The politician claims he would allow some limited forms of gender recognition, provided trans people could provide “specialist medical evidence.”

As the current system of gender recognition requires medical evidence, it is unclear what exactly Latham is proposing.

NSW Labor politician Graham Perrett told the Mail: “He has nothing constructive to say about about Australian society.

“This is simply a shock tactic to extract more votes. I’m one of the parliamentary convenors for LGBTI and we take matters like these very seriously.”

Latham was a strong opponent of same-sex marriage during the country’s 2017 postal vote on the issue, claiming he was worried the law would allow transgender people to get married to people of the opposite sex.

The politician was sacked as a Sky News pundit in 2017 after he refused to apologise for describing a school child as “gay” on-air.

Once a fringe party, One Nation has seen a national growth in support in recent years.

The party’s national leader Pauline Hanson claimed in 2017 that same-sex marriage could lead to people marrying children.

There's no such thing as real science.

Science is just a name for a Satanic cult. It's like saying you use the real Catholic.

It's like saying that you use only white witchcraft, and reject the black.

Satanism and science are two sides of the same coin.

Quote# 142070

Same-sex marriage should not be a thing. Marriage is a constitution that should be exclusive to healthy non-life threatening heterosexual non-pedophile relationships. To a certain point, marriage is about procreation and child-rearing, but it does not necessarily have to be about procreation and child-rearing. Marriage is about the recognition or consecration of a healthy romantic relationship, or it at least it should be. Therefore, homosexual couples should not have the right to be recognized or consecrated through marriage.

Homosexual couples do not love each other, and are sick unions. Their relationship is a behavior deviant of the laws of nature, and of God. They are sick relationships whose 'love' is very alike a mental-disease, except it is actually an evil choice or result of wicked confusion. Governments should not recognize through marriage sick deviant relationships as if they were normal relationships, or even a form of love. The state must not embrace evil or immorality, but discourage it. By recognizing sick unions though same-sex marriage, the government is encouraging immorality.

Like Confucius said "Societies will achieve social and civil harmony only when individuals achieve moral harmony within themselves." Hence, encouragement of immorality and sickness will do naught but harm society, and threaten the harmony tying everything together. Same-sex marriage is alike allowing psychopaths to become doctors, or allowing a man to marry his own mother. It is not the recognition or consecration of a normal loving union, but the recognition or consecration of sickness as normality, and evil as good.

Homosexuality is a condition which is known to be exceedingly harmful, or at least this is what facts have shown. Studies have proven homosexuality to be a behavior which reduces the lifespan by 20 years precious years. This reduction in the lifespan of gays is not due to stigmatization since the studies were done in countries where opposition to homosexuality was basically none. Religious and ethnic groups which suffer from genuine discrimination ( I'm not talking about the ones who suffer from discrimination so severe so as to be killed due to what their country considers a crime, but about the ones who get beaten or prevented from getting good jobs due to what their country considers a crime) in other countries do not suffer from this appalling state.

Studies has also proven that homosexuality is a condition which increases risk of many deadly cancers, breast cancer among them. Some say this condition is because of gay's tendency towards unhealthy society-disapproved behaviors or states (smoking, drinking alcohol,...). But in all of the studies which revealed this execrable fact, heterosexuals engaged more often in unhealthy society-disapproved behaviors and suffered more of society disapproved conditions than did gays, leaving no other factor to be held accountable for gay's increased risk of cancer other than homosexuality.

There are plenty of other sicknesses caused by specious homosexuality, but due to their sheer number only this number shall be covered. Thus, the government or any other organization should not consecrate homosexuality through same-sex marriage, for it is a dangerous condition that should be discouraged not encouraged or considered equal to heterosexuality.

Homosexuality is no different from incest, both being sins against God, and medically unhealthy (homosexuality is also similar to zoophilia and other sick romances, but since most people are tremendously ignorant as to why they are similar; they shall not be discussed here for the sake of brevity). The consecration and embracement of one sick romance through the ceremony of marriage means that the other sick romance has an equivalent right to be consecrated and embraced through marriage.

Now, the fact that sick relationships should not be married does not mean that infertile couples should be prevented from marrying. Though infertile couples suffer from the sickness of barrenness, their sickness is not detrimental to the nature of the relationship or should it be an obstacle to marriage. Regardless of their inability to reproduce, their relationship is normal, not a relationship deviant to the laws of nature (opposites attract) or to the laws of God. The sexual acts committed by an infertile heterosexual couple pose no threat to their lives, and in no way are a cause of sickness. They are fully capacitated for child-rearing, and can efficiently bring up kids. Therefore, infertile couples have a complete right to be married, for they fulfill the essential requirements of marriage, and have the capability to satisfy all the optional wants of wedlock. They have the right to be married for their love is love, not sickness.

Marriage equality is a good thing, but this should not include equality among completely unequal relationships. Marriage equality should never include sick harmful relationships; marriage equality should only be for healthy heterosexual relationships. A fish should not have be treated like a cow. Unfortunately, marriage is not anymore what it actually is, the consecration of heterosexual relationships. As people became more detached from reality, and intertwined with immorality; the meaning of marriage and love has been lost. This ignorance has led many to belief in the myth that homosexuals couples can raise kids as efficiently as straight couples even though many recent and non-recent studies has said otherwise. Some in their ignorance has argued that the non-recent studies are wrong for they do not cover the well being of children raised in same-sex married couples. But, this train of thought ignores the results of recent studies which has covered random large samples of children raised in same-sex married relationships. One of these studies being the study done by Mr. Sullins (2015).

In their dark ignorance many have come to compare the performance of same-sex couples in the process of child rearing to that of single parents, even though children in same-sex couples fare worse. Homosexuality is not an inborn condition, and it is harmful. Thus, it is not a cause for special rights.

on being friends with a pedophile that actively downloads real child porn


Hell, I'll go further than most, and say that I would continue to be friends with him even if he had actually done something provided that all of the following conditions were met: He was caught and convicted, he was punished, he complied with all of the elements of legal supervision (parole, registration as a sex offender, etc.), he admits what he did, he feels bad about it, it happened no more than once, he was under 22 when it happened, it has been at least 10 years since it happened, and all the other conditions of the OP are met.

I believe in judging people as they are now. It would take a lot of convincing for me to believe that all of those conditions were met (and of course things like his age and the length of time are not bright lines), but if he is really as good a friend as described, I think it would be possible.

I will add the following caveats: I have no kids. If I did, I think I'd still be friends under the OP's conditions, but very likely not if he'd actually done anything. I'm sure I'd agonize over it no matter what. And finally, I'm not sure this makes me a better person. My natural tendency is to react to people based on what I actually see, not on what else I know about them. It's easy to make this into a virtue, but it could just as much be moral laziness. Along with this is the fact that I don't tend to form extremely close friendships, so what I'm picturing as a continued friendship may be just an aquaintenceship to someone else.

Oh, and regarding the legal aspect, I voted that he would be convicted and it would stand (assuming he was convicted of obscenity, not child pornography), but actually, I believe that most people in that situation would plead guilty and not appeal it only to get the whole ordeal over with. (A decision they would possibly regret, but nevertheless what they would do. Fighting a legal battle is very expensive and extremely stressful and this story would undoubtedly be in the press a great deal while it was ongoing in court.)

Napier: Tough one. I said I'd remain his friend, but without having experienced this scenario I can't say I'm sure


LIONsob: Stay friends and think that the prosecution is politicaly motivated thought-policing.


Joey P : I'd feel sorry for him but remain friends with him. He knows he has a problem and he deals with it in such a way that he's not harming anyone. What he does in his own house, by himself is his business, not mine, not anyone elses.


even sven: I'd have no problem remaining friends with him. People have all sorts of strange fantasies, and as long as you can recognize the difference between fantasy and reality, I see nothing wrong with beating off to whatever.

infovoreAs long as Al has never done anything to a real child and proactively keeps himself away from children, I would remain his friend. I would feel very sorry for him and it would probably squick me out--I'm not sure that the friendship would continue in the same form that it did before the material was discovered. But as long as he had not and would not hurt, bother, or otherwise cause mental or physical harm to actual kids, then yes, I'd stay his friend.
