Are you a deathscort? I might know you. What state?

No, I am not an escort, I am a wound specialist who spends hours every day healing prurulent, nonhealing wounds that often go down to the infected bone, getting flesh to grow in hopes that the veteran or diabetic or new mother/frequent mother does not have to have their limb amputated, or worse. What do you do, besides bully women? And what state do you do that in?

Liar. All you live for is to kill, kill, kill.

You love death, and if you were a wound specialist, which you are not - thank God! - you would have killed many through your medical and science phobia and incompetence.

Much butt-hurt emanating from Sulzberger's Slimes and the rest of the Piranha Press over the Chinese government's decision to scrap the two-term limit (5 years per term) for its appointed President, Xi Jinping. The tsunami of condemnation from the great and the good who occupy the high places of "the free world" ™ has been so intense, that it only took hours after the announcement for Sugar and me, er, "The Editorial Board" of The Anti-New York Times to grant expedited trademark privileges for the term "power grab" ™ -- ("Xi power grab" already returns 513,000 results for Joogle Search)

Before we dig into a few select excerpts from Sulzberger's scribblers, let us note, with gleeful approval, that the evil, deceitful, seditious Slimes, both the English and Chinese as well as both the print and cyber versions, was banned in China back in 2012. (here) And with "strongman" ™ Xi's latest "power grab" ™, it doesn't look like "the paper of record" will be allowed to corrupt young Chinese minds anytime soon.

Meyers: There was a time, not so long ago, when a Chinese leader setting himself up as ruler for life would have stirred international condemnation for bucking the global trend toward greater democracy. Now, such an action seems fully in keeping with moves by many countries in the other direction.

Translation: What Meyers (cough cough) is really saying is: "Damn it. We are losing our grip on too many countries!"

Meyers: The surprise disclosure on Sunday that the Communist Party was abolishing constitutional limits on presidential terms — effectively allowing President Xi Jinping to lead China indefinitely — was the latest and arguably most significant sign of the world’s decisive tilt toward authoritarian governance.

Analysis: Notice how selective these Globalists are in their condemnation of "authoritarian governance." The President of their beloved and revered Brussels-based European Union and also the EU "Council of Ministers" are non-elected and rule by decrees from which member states cannot escape without sanctions or threats of sanctions.

Meyers: The list includes Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi of Egypt and Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, all of whom have abandoned most pretenses that they rule according to the people’s will. Authoritarianism is also reappearing in places like Hungary and Poland that barely a quarter-century ago shook loose the shackles of Soviet oppression.

Analysis: Again, note the hypocrisy and selective application of standards. The Frumpy Frau of Germany has run that oppressed nation with an iron fist since 2005 and will likely stay in office until 2021, before handing over the reins of Germany's apocalyptic horses to her hand-picked successor -- an even homlier hyphenated hag named Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. And yet, we never seem to hear complaints about Angie's "power grab" ™, do we?

The "authoritarians" Xi, Putin, Sisi and others don't give a rat's ass what the Jew York Slimes has to say. And that is why Sulzberger's scribblers are "concerned." 2 & 3. Unlimited terms are 'OK" if the "authoritarian" in question is a Globalist libtard. After 16 years as Boss Lady of Bolshevik Germany, the Frumpy Frau will likely be succeeded by her hand-picked cronie bitch, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (yikes!)

Meyers: There are many reasons for such moves by Mr. Xi and others ... but a significant one is that few countries have the standing or authority, morally or otherwise, to speak out — least of all, critics say, the United States.

“I mean, who is going to punish him internationally now?” asked Susan L. Shirk, the chairwoman of the 21st Century China Program at the University of California, San Diego.

Analysis: Let me get this straight, Professor Shirk (cough cough). You want Xi to be "punished" for his "authoritarianism" ™, but lament the fact there is no one who can do it. We wonder, bitch, when the "democratic" ™ USA terror bombed the innocent populations of Serbia and Iraq into submission, and unleashed proxy terror armies upon Syria and Libya, did you and your fellow eggheads ever call for Messrs' Clinton, Bush and Obongo to be "punished internationally?" Hmmm?

Meyers: “Thirty years ago, with what Xi did, with what Erdogan has done, there would have been an outpouring of international concern: ‘You’re getting off the path,’ and so on,” said Michael A. McFaul, a political scientist and diplomat who, ... wrote extensively on building democracies.“Nobody is making that argument today,” he added, “certainly not Trump.”

Translation: What "political scientist" McFaul is eally saying: "1990's China and Yeltsin's democratic ™ Russia used to fear us. Now they won't obey and Trump is sympathetic to their nationalistic authoritarian ™ tendencies."

The way in which history links to the present is really fascinating. Way back in the 1930's, The Great One (that's Hitler for all you newbies and normies) was on to this trademarked "democracy" ™ vs "authoritarianism" ™ jive talk. Tell it, Great One, tell it:

1. Hitler: "Yes, Germany, before us, was back then a democracy, and we had been plundered and squeezed dry. No, what does democracy or authoritarian state mean to those international hyenas? They don’t care at all. They are only interested in one thing: Are you willing to be plundered? Yes or no? Are you stupid enough to keep quiet in the process? Yes or no? And when a democracy is stupid enough not to stand up, then it is good. But when an authoritarian state declares, ‘You are not going to plunder our people, neither from the inside nor the outside’, then that is bad."

2. Academic egghead Susan Shirk wants Xi to be punished, but doesn't know how it can be done.

Meyers: President Trump’s administration on Monday brushed off questions about Mr. Xi’s move. “I believe that’s a decision for China to make about what’s best for their country,” said Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary.

Analysis: Add a few check-marks to the "plus side" of Trump's ledger.

Meyers: Even the Russia that emerged from the ruins of the Soviet Union adopted a democratic constitution and instituted free elections. ...

Analysis: Democracy was imposed upon Russia by western Globalists who thought they could control the political parties.

Meyers: Whatever the chaos of Boris N. Yeltsin’s era in the 1990s, democracy was taking root when Mr. Putin came to power — in a relatively free and fair election, no less.

Translation: "I don't care if Russians were starving and freezing to death during the economic collapse of the Yeltsin years. At least we had control over Russia's internal politics back then."

Meyer: “(Western liberal democracy) is no more,” Brad W. Setser, a Treasury official during the Obama administration who is now at the Council on Foreign Relations, wrote in a message after news emerged of Mr. Xi’s move.

Analysis: So, the notorious Council on Foreign Relations -- founded in 1921 for the purpose of recruiting ambitious politicians, journalists and academics to work towards creating an eventual world government -- isn't too happy about "Xi's move." That alone, boys and girls, is reason for all of us to give a great big round of cyber-applause for "China's Hitler" --- Heil Xi Jinping!

1. Trump is being mocked for his indifference towards Xi's "power grab" ™. 2. The Globalists were pleased when their control over Russian "democracy" brought death, poverty and starvation to Yeltsin's Russia. Note the sub-headline from Time Magazine (July, 1996): "The Secret Story of How American Advisers Helped Yeltsin Win." But now that the "authoritarian" Putin has brought stability and growing prosperity to Russia, it is bad. 3. The CFR -- whose original Director was Paul "Father of the Federal Reserve" Warburg, has been at this dirty game of foreign intrigue for nearly 100 years!

They laugh at the fact that the Bible claims that people before the flood lived to be hundreds of years old. They also laugh at the idea that there was enough water to flood the whole earth and that it then receded somewhere.

I said these are kind of related, and I believe that they are. First let me quote from Genesis:

Genesis 1:6-7 And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water." [7] So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so.

So we see from this that God separated the water under the expanse (sky) from the water above the expanse (sky). Now think about what water above the sky would be like. Well it would most likely be very high in the atmosphere at the edge of space, which we know is very cold. So the water would have been an ice layer above the breathable atmosphere.

What would an ice layer like that do? It would filter out solar radiation for one. We know today that solar radiation has a lot to do with cancer and aging, both in animals and humans. So if this ice layer were to filter out some or all of this radiation, what would you expect to happen to those people and animals that lived under this filter? They would have less disease and live longer!

Secondly, an ice layer would cause a greenhouse effect on the earth, making the temperatures more moderate throughout the world. Could this explain the frozen animals in the Arctic that have been found with green vegetation in their stomachs?

Thirdly, it would put pressure on the atmosphere. What you would have is a natural barometric chamber covering the whole earth. Again, what would you expect that to do to the people and animals on the earth? All you have to do is look at what modern medicine and science use barometric chambers for today to find out the answer. If a person has a limb amputated and then reattached they are often placed in a barometric chamber and given high concentrations of oxygen to help the healing process. Now, remember the greenhouse effect the ice layer would have produced, meaning that there would have been more oxygen-producing plants on the earth. So the end result would be healthier and longer living humans.

It's become fashionable to draw comparisons between the popular television adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale and Donald Trump's America.

It's become fashionable to draw comparisons between the popular television adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale and Donald Trump's America.

Margaret Atwood, whose work I have long admired, is now being hailed as a prophet. It is quite the phenomenon. According to the pundits, Atwood's 1985 work, The Handmaid's Tale, which Mary McCarthy once savaged, and the recently-published 2019 sequel, The Testaments, are dystopias which aptly describe the contemporary climate change crisis, toxic environments, the rise in infertility, and the enslavement of women in Trump's America.

Is this all Atwood is writing about? Do the increasing restrictions on abortion in America parallel the extreme misogyny of Gilead, the theocratic state in Atwood's saga? Is the unjust separation of mothers and children, a la Trump on the southern border, what Atwood has foretold? Every review and interview with Atwood that I could find strongly insists that this is the case.

Michelle Goldberg, in the New York Times, attributes the current popularity of The Handmaid's Tale to Trump's ascendancy. She writes: "It's hardly surprising that in 2016 the book resonated—particularly women—stunned that a brazen misogynist, given to fascist rhetoric and backed by religious fundamentalists was taking power."

Gilead-inspired handmaid outfits have become popular at anti-Trump rallies as far away as Poland.

Gilead-inspired handmaid outfits have become popular at anti-Trump rallies as far away as Poland.

... At the anti-Trump pro-women's rights marches around the country, some feminist protesters dressed like Handmaids in billowing, shapeless red dresses, their facial identities obscured by large, white Victorian-era bonnets, carrying signs that read: "Make Margaret Atwood fiction again" and "The Handmaid's Tale is not an instruction manual."

They have a point. Abortion rights are being steadily challenged and nearly eviscerated in the formerly slave-owning American states. Right-to-life lawyers insist that the protection of unborn children without any gestational markers is the law of the land. We now have free states and slave states in terms of access to high quality, insurance-funded abortions. Pregnant, drug-addicted women are being jailed for child abuse.

Gilead most reflects what is happening not in America, but in most Islamic countries.

Gilead most reflects what is happening not in America, but in most Islamic countries.

However ... [t]here's another contemporary parallel that also gets scant attention. Gilead's system of pseudo-theocratic totalitarian control in both her novels and in the MGM/Hulu versions does not accurately reflect what is happening in America today; it mirrors what is happening in most Islamic countries, a fact that Atwood and her admirers are too politically correct to notice.

Obscuring one's individual identity, masking one's face, sequestering women at home, may have been true of many previous cultures and regimes. However, in this day forced niqabs (face veils) and burqas (head, face, and body bags) are mainly realities for women in Muslim countries and communities in the West. In Iran in July, three women were sentenced to a total of 55 years between them for protesting against the veil.

In July 2019, an Iranian court sentenced Yasaman Aryani (left), Monireh Arabshahi (center), and Mojgan Keshavarz to a total of 55 years in prison for protesting against the veil.

In The Handmaid's Tale Atwood does mention Islam twice (to exonerate Muslims as the suspected mass murderers of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Oval Office in Gilead (p.174) and again in a reference to the "obsession with harems" on the part of allegedly Orientalist Western painters who did not understand that they were painting "boredom" (p.69). Atwood's quintessential Bad Guys are Caucasian, Bible-thumping, right wing, conservative, American Christians.

Where else but in the Islamic world do we see forced face veiling, forced child marriage, women confined to the home, polygamy (a "wife" and a "handmaid" under the same roof), male guardians and minders, cattle prod shocking, whipping, hand amputations, stoning, crazed vigilante mobs stomping and tearing people apart, and tortured corpses publicly displayed on city walls or hanging from cranes in order to terrify the populace? Or the torture murder of homosexuals? This is how Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram, the Islamic Republics of Iran and Afghanistan, the tyrants of Somalia and Saudi Arabia, interpret, correctly or incorrectly, Sharia law.

How could all the reviewers not see what I so clearly see? Perhaps here's how.

I once lived in a harem in Afghanistan—a harem simply means the "women's quarters." It is forbidden territory to all men who are not relatives. If you can't leave without permission or without a male escort, you are in a harem and living in purdah.

<table>

"I once lived in a harem ... the property of a polygamous Afghan family."

"I once lived in a harem ... the property of a polygamous Afghan family."

After a 30-month courtship, I married the glamorous, wealthy, very Westernized, foreign student whom I first met at college when I was 18. We never once discussed religion. Not a word about Islam. He had not prepared me for what life would be like in his country, even temporarily. For example, he had never even mentioned that his father had three wives and 21 children, that most Afghan women still wore burqas or heavy hijab, that I would be pressured to convert to Islam, and would have to live with my mother-in-law.

When we landed in Kabul, officials smoothly removed my American passport—which I never saw again. Suddenly, I was the citizen of no country and had no rights. I had become the property of a polygamous Afghan family. I was not allowed out without a male escort, a male driver, and a female relative as my chaperones.

This marriage had transported me back to the 10th Century and trapped me there without a passport back to the future.

I experienced what it was like to live with people who were permanently afraid of what other people might think—even more so than in Small Mind Town, USA.

I was terrified when I first saw women wearing ghostly burqas—ambulatory body bags, sensory deprivation isolation chambers—huddled together literally at the back of the bus. My Afghan family laughed at my over-reaction, which was considered abnormal, not their practice of burying women alive.

My dreamer-of-a husband kept assuring me that the dreadful burqa and my captivity would both soon pass. He lived to see this dream come true for about 15 years for the middle classes until it was shattered again, perhaps forever.

Many Afghan women have mothers-in-law who beat them and treat them as despised servants. Mine never hit me or ordered me to cook or clean, but she tried to convert me to Islam every single day and tried to kill me by telling the servants to stop boiling my water and washing my fruits and vegetables. I got deathly ill.

Poor woman, she was a deserted and much maligned first wife. She feared me, envied me, hated me—as a woman, an infidel, a Jew, an American, and mainly, as a "love match," something considered too dangerously Western. Afghan mothers-in-law do collaborate in or even perpetrate the honor/horror killings of their daughters and daughters-in-law. So do rural India-based Hindu mothers and mothers-in-law, Muslim mothers and mothers-in-law world-wide, and Sikhs, to a lesser extent.

I got out of the wild, wild East and I moved on. But I never forgot the way it was. I always understood that as imperfect as America and the West might be, it was still a much better place for women than the Islamic world. Forever after, I understood that barbaric customs are indigenous, not caused by foreign intervention; and that, like the West, Islam was also an imperial and colonial power, owned slaves, and engaged in gender and religious apartheid.

I owe Afghanistan a great deal for teaching me this. Perhaps my radical Western feminism was forged long ago in pampered purdah in Kabul.

Islamic or Islamist totalitarianism today and as I knew it nearly 60 years ago in Kabul is the more obvious face of Gilead than the one imagined by Atwood more than 30 years ago.

Like the handmaids and domestics in Gilead, the captive population in Orwell's 1984 is monitored around the clock through "telescreens" that can view every room, each person. The telescreens broadcast Big Brother's orders and conduct daily "hate" sessions. People are always anxious and paranoid; everyone has permanent enemies.

Today, Orwell's Thought Police sound a lot like the Afghan Taliban or like Iran's or Saudi Arabia's Virtue­ and-Vice squads, who arrest men and women for the smallest sign of "individuality" or difference, and who harass and arrest women for showing a single strand of hair, or a glimpse of ankle. Here's Khaled Hosseini's fictional description of life in Afghanistan under the Soviets in The Kite Runner:

You couldn't trust anyone in Kabul anymore—for a fee or under threat, people told on each other, neighbor on neighbor, child on parent, brother on brother, servant on master, friend on friend...the rafiqs, the [Afghan] comrades, were everywhere and they'd split Kabul into two groups: those who eavesdropped and those who didn't...A casual remark to the tailor while getting fitted for a suit might land you in the dungeons of Poleh-charkhi...Even at the dinner table, in the privacy of their own home, people had to speak in a calculated manner—the rafiqs were in the classrooms too; they'd taught children to spy on their parents, what to listen for, whom to tell.

And here he is describing Afghanistan in the Taliban era:

In Kabul, fear is everywhere, in the streets, in the stadiums, in the markets, it is a part of our lives here...the savages who rule our watan [country] don't care about human decency. The other day, I accompanied Farzanajan to the bazaar to buy some potatoes and naan. She asked the vendor how much the potatoes cost, but he did not hear her, I think he had a deaf ear. So she asked louder and suddenly a young Talib ran over and hit her on the thighs with his wooden stick. He struck her so hard she fell down. He was screaming at her and cursing and saying the Ministry of Vice and Virtue does not allow women to speak loudly. She had a large purple bruise on her leg for days...If I fought, that dog would have surely put a bullet in me, and gladly!

Hosseini's descriptions are right out of 1984 or The Handmaid's Tale.

Two memoirs set in Iran, Azar Nafisi's best-selling Reading Lolita in Tehran and Roya Hakakian's Journey from the Land of No, describe the savage curtailment of private life and thought—and of life itself—by radical Islamists.

Two compelling accounts of life for women in Iran's Islamic Republic.

Two compelling accounts of life for women in Iran's Islamic Republic.

According to Nafisi, Khomeini's goon squads closed news­papers and universities and arrested, tortured, and executed beloved teachers, prominent artists, intellectuals, and activists, including feminists, and thousands of other innocent and productive Muslims. The squads constantly harassed women on the street and at work. If a woman failed the dress-code standards even slightly, or by accident, she risked being arrested, probably raped, probably executed.

In Journey from the Land of No, Roya Hakakian describes the in­describable "Mrs. Moghadam," the newly-installed head of the Jewish girls' high school. Mrs. Moghadam tyrannizes, terrifies, and shames the Jewish girls. She tries to convert them to Islam. However, her true passion is more Talibanesque. She informs the innocent girls that, although they do not know it, they are "diabolical," "abominable," "loathsome," "lethal," capable of "drowning everything in eternal dark­ness," capable of bringing the "apocalypse" by showing a single strand of hair. To Hakakian's credit, she presents a rather dangerous turn of events as a dark comedy.

Mrs. Moghadam is definitely an Aunt Lydia, the lead female tormentor of the Handmaids, right out of Gilead, circa 1985.

Many Western feminists mistakenly see the face veil and head scarf as symbols of anti-racism.

Many Western feminists mistakenly see the face veil and head scarf as symbols of anti-racism.

As Muslim women are being tortured, honor-murdered by their families, or stoned to death, sometimes for refusing to wear the veil, many Western multiculturally and politically correct post-colonial feminists are deconstructing and wearing the face veil and the head scarf as symbols of anti-racism and as a form of respect when they visit Muslim countries. Such feminists are also silencing and demonizing all other views in academic journals, in the media, and on feminist internet groups.

I've written about this many times. Therefore, while I know that violence against women still remains a burning issue in the West, I agree with Allison Pearson's recent article in The Spectator: "The appalling vanity of Western Feminists who think Margaret Atwood writes about them."

Atwood depicts an all-female power structure in which the handmaids are kept in line by cruel female "Aunts," led by Aunt Lydia, who casually apply cattle prods and tasers, who blame them as evil sluts, punish them with group condemnation, bouts of solitary confinement, exile them to the "Colonies" to die cleaning up toxic waste, etc. Such behavior seems to contradict feminist views of women as morally superior to men and as more compassionate and intuitive.

Aunt Lydia (left) and the al-Khansa Brigade of ISIS

Like men, women are human beings and as such are as close to the apes as to the angels. Women are also aggressive, cruel, competitive, envious, sometimes lethally so, but mainly toward other women. I would not want to be at the mercy of a female prison guard—or a female concentration camp guard—in the West. But let's not forget the Wives of ISIS—the all-femaleal-Khansaa Brigade who whipped, beat, and mutilated the breasts of girls and women when their heavy black burqas slipped. Displaced ISIS women continue their anti-woman reign of terror.

Misogynist thinking and actions exist in America today but not only among right-wing conservatives. It is also flourishing among our media and academic elites. Such thinking is flying high under the banner of "free speech," "multi-cultural relativism," "anti-racism," and "political correctness." Dare to question this elite's right to silence and shame those who challenge their views—i.e., that the West is always to blame, that jihadists are freedom-fighters, that the Islamic face veil is a free choice or a religious commandment, that polygamy encourages sisterhood, that Islam is a race, not a religious and political ideology—and, as I've noted many times, one is attacked as a racist, an Islamophobe, and a conservative, and swiftly demonized and de-platformed.

While MGM/Hulu's TV series is dramatically compelling, part soap opera, part horror movie, part Warrior Queen fantasy, the series is radically different from Atwood's 1985 novel. For example, Atwood's narrator, Ofglen, is not an increasingly daring, crazed, female assassin, as Elizabeth Moss brilliantly plays her. She is hardly heroic at all; under totalitarianism, heroism, collective or individual, is quickly ferreted out and destroyed. It exists but is rare.

Contemporary viewers are hungry for multi-racial characters, interracial and same-sex couples, "badass" women. Hulu gives them to us. Hulu's Canada is a multi-racial, politically correct refuge for Gilead's escapees; same-sex couples and feminists are government leaders. This is not true in the novel. On the contrary, in her 1985 Epilogue, Atwood has Canada rounding up and returning all Gilead escapees.

Atwood the divine novelist is absolutely entitled to depict whatever she wishes. But the current crop of reviewers as well as the filmmakers are playing partisan politics with her original vision and are refusing to see other and larger global dangers contained in her work.

Women's freedom and women's lives worldwide are under the most profound siege. To focus solely on the United States or on the Caucasian, Judeo-Christian West is diversionary. It scapegoats one country, one culture, for the far greater crimes of other countries and cultures.

Notes:

[1]Commercial surrogacy has been outlawed in India, Thailand, parts of Mexico, Malaysia, and South Africa, as well as in many European countries including Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, and the UK. Hence, the campaign to legalize commercial surrogacy in America has gathered momentum.

[2] Contemporary surrogacy has now become a way of slicing and dicing biological motherhood into three parts: an egg donor, who undergoes painful and dangerous IVF procedures; a "gestational" mother who faces all the risks of pregnancy, childbirth, and potentially negative and lifelong medical and psychiatric consequences; and an adoptive mother or father. This vivisection of motherhood makes it impossible for a birthmother to win custody for any reason.

The intra-mural war between the Satanyahu Zionist and the Soros Globalist crime families of the "Kosher Nostra" heats up (no pun intended) with Trumpstein's decision to stick it to the Globalist faction by pulling the United States out of the "Paris Climate Agreement." As the world's leading emitter of harmless plant-food molecules (CO2), this essentially means that the devious deal, in spite of China, India and Russia's feigned "commitment" to the Paris scheme, will, in due course, die altogether -- except perhaps in the Communist EU and many individual American states.

Now would be a good time to summarize some important historical propaganda milestones of the 40-year old hoax that has "evolved" from being known as "The Greenhouse Effect" TM to "Global Warming" TM to "Climate Change" TM.

•1970: With great fanfare, the first "Earth Day" (April 22nd, Lenin's Birthday) kicked-off with CBS's Walter Cronkite (CFR) hosting a nationally televised TV special. The theme of "saving the planet" was thus introduced to the gullible young hippie crowd who have since grown up to takeover America, at the behest of their invisible handlers (cough cough).

Cronkite and the media's heavy promotion of "Earth Day 1970" was a sure indication of a Globalist push for some sinister agenda.

•1975-1978: During the mid 1970's, "scientific" talk of a coming "ice age" (not necessarily related to pollution) was used to frighten the population.

People aged 45 and under cannot remember that we once had a bit of an ice-age scare.

•1979-1982: At a time when world population and plant-food emissions were far lower than they are today, concerns about an ice-age are suddenly replaced with tales of a "Greenhouse Effect" TM that is expected to wreak havoc by the Year 2000. After nearly 40 years, none of the dire predictions have come to pass as "doomsday" is again and again pushed up to yet another far off day in "our children's future."

•1990: The children's TV show, Captain Planet and The Planeteers" is unveiled by Globalist Ted Turner. The series will be broadcast on TBS from 1990 to 1992. A sequel series, The New Adventures of Captain Planet, is later broadcast from 1993-1996. Many millions of children, now in their 30's, were brainwashed by cartoons which featured the green-haired Captain Planet and his young "Planeteers" battling against evil business and oil men such as "Hoggish Greedly."

1. In the early 1980's, images of the Statue of Liberty, predicted to be under water by 2000, were used to frighten school children across America. 2. Captain Planet and the Planeteers: Evil Communist propaganda aimed at helpless children -- many of whom have since grown up into adult libtards.

1992: CFR member, Senator and soon-to-be Vice President, Al Gore (D-TN) publishes Earth in the Balance, in which he calls for a "Global Marshall Plan to "save the planet." The book is hyped to the stars by Sulzberger's Slimes and the rest of the Piranha Press.

2006: Al Gore, who had almost been elected President in 2000, authors another propaganda book titled, An Inconvenient Truth. Dealing solely with the "crisis" of Global Warming" TM, the error-filled book serves as the basis for a movie version directed by Davis Guggenheim (cough cough) and narrated by Al Gore. Gore's fake film premiers at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. The Marxist movie is then mega-hyped by the Piranha Press and wins two Academy Awards. It would later be shown in classrooms across America and Britain. Adding idiocy to insult, Gore is then awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his assinine activism.

The world gone mad! Greasy Gore collects an Academy Award and a Nobel Prize.

2015: The Communist Pope Francis issues an unprecedented edict directing his followers to believe that "Climate Change" TM is real. He condemns it as a "sin" and urges the world to "take action." All of a sudden, the Judenpresse loves a Catholic Pope. Hmmmm.

2016: Hollywood degenerate Leonardo DiCaprio releases a National Geographic crockumentary about "Climate Change" TM. The pack of lies, massively hyped by the Piranha Press, is titled, Before the Flood. DiCommio and Poop Frankie are now the biggest public faces pushing for action (global taxes on plant food and NWO control over business) on "Climate Change" TM.

In the absence of any real science to support the outrageous claims, it was these propaganda initiatives, combined with never-ending Fake News stories, that brought nearly 50% of the American public to now believing in at least some degree of man-made "Climate Change" TM. It is a classic case of bought-off "science" and "manufactured consent" being used to cover up the Globalist agenda to tax the air we exhale -- and which plants "happily" inhale -- and then transfer that stolen wealth to UN bureaucrats and Turd World politicians. That's the truth, and the seditious scum at Sulzberger's Slimes damn well know it.

Now before "youse guys" (New Jersey speak for the plural of you) jump back on the Trump Train over this welcome event, keep in mind that Trumpstein's war on Globalism and EUism is being waged on behalf of Israeli Super Nationalists working for a "Greater Israel" -- not America. Trumpstein also blew a golden opportunity to publicly denounce the Fake Science of the warmists -- opting to oppose the deal on the basis of economic arguments only, while still acknowledging that some small degree of man-made warming is occuring -- when it is not! And finally, because the false belief remains in place, about 20 US states (including the massive states of New York & California) will still have expensive and job-killing "carbon controls" anyway.

The great hoax is still alive and well -- as is the Globalist movement.

It never ceases to amaze and amuse how the seditious scribblers at Sulzberger's Slimes will always find some creative way to take the most seemingly unrelated topics and link back to the "Holocaust" TM. In this case, it was Valentine's Day. Get a load of this Marxist mush:

"On Valentine’s Day, couples often reminisce about that moment they knew they would stay together, whether during a vacation, over a fancy dinner or, perhaps, while meeting their future in-laws.

For Isaac and Rosa Blum, who became teenage sweethearts 75 years ago in a ghetto in Nazi-occupied Poland, that moment came as they and thousands of other terrified Jews were being herded to a death camp by Nazi soldiers."

lay it again, Ira ... and again.. and again .. and again..

The Slimes writer with the Irish-as-can-be name, Corey Kilgannon, though clearly not a Tribesmen, evidently understands all too well from whence his bagel is buttered. If he keeps this up, can a Pultizer Prize be in his near future? Let's dig into a few excerpts of Corey's corny comedy.

***

Kilgannon: “I saw her walking in front of me,” Mr. Blum recalled. “I went up to the German and told him, ‘That’s my sister,’ even though she was my girlfriend.”

Rebuttal: So, the evil "Nazi" TM allowed Mr. Blum to walk with a girl he thought was his sister, thus saving her from going to a "death camp." That was nice of him.

Kilgannon: Miraculously, they were both pulled off the line and managed to survive the Holocaust by working as slave laborers in a munitions factory.

Rebuttal: "Miraculously," eh? Ever notice how every story about Holocaust TM "survival" includes the word, "miraculous." Dear Corey. What was so "miraculous" about being sent to a labor camp? Wasn't that the whole purpose of the internment camps? The real "miracle" here is that after 70+ years, people still fall for this crap.

Kilgannon: He is 94, and she is a year younger. Asked to recount their lengthy love affair, they noted the absurdity of couching it — a romance incubated in the hell of the Holocaust — in the frilly trappings of Valentine’s Day.

Rebuttal: If life was such "hell" in the factory camp, then how did the Blums manage to carry on dating and smooching? And, as evidenced by the 3,000 babies born at Auschwitz alone (here) (some conceived after internment), they may very well have done a whole lot more than just smooch, if you catch my drift. These various camps sound more like modern day college campuses than "hell."

Kilgannon (quoting Mr. Blum on the paradoxical elements of the story): “You have a mixed story here — you won’t be able to put them together,”

Rebuttal: Oh ya got that right, Blumie! We can't "put it together" how you and so many hundreds of thousands of other "survivors" were able to walk out of this "Nazi genocide" alive and well, and, in many cases, with a sweetheart on your arm and a frickin' baby in hers!

Kilgannon: It was young, bold love that prodded him to stand up to a Nazi guard and save his sweetheart ....

Rebuttal: Let it not be said that Sugar and I, er, "The Editorial Board" of The Anti-New York Times are lacking in romantic sentiments, however ...

Kilgannon: ...from being sent to the Treblinka death camp.

Rebuttal: The Treblinka "death camp" in Poland was discovered by the Soviets. We only "know" that is was an "extermination camp" because Joe Stalin's "commission" and some of the Communists and Jews housed there said so.

Kilgannon: A hasty marriage followed, ....

Rebuttal: So, the big bad "Nazis" TM allowed their captives to get married under their watch, eh? A paradoxical "mixed story" that we cannot "put together" indeed!

Kilgannon: ... and then a horrific honeymoon of sorts: stealing glances and brief exchanges under the stern watch of armed guards.

Rebuttal: Oh the bloody drama! Reads like one of those cheesy romance novels. Were the moon-lit summer nights warm and sultry too?

At least the Blums never had to worry about being burnt to death, crushed to death, starved to death, raped to death and sadistically tortured to death like so many innocent Germans were both during and after the war.

***

The rest of the article consists of just the usual old cliched barf about the Blums undying love for each other and the secrets to a long marriage, with still more obligatory back-story references to the traumatic memories of "the Holocaust" TM and the evil "Nazis" TM etc. For the witless boobs who so dutifully devour the Slime's daily dose of dung, this little human interest story serves to reinforce their delusions about the HOLOHOAX. But for the astute reader who reflects upon every line with a critical eye and mind, yet another confirmed story about "survival" and marriage in "zee concentration camps" amounts to further primary source evidence refuting the biggest lie ever told.

Boobus Americanus 1: I read a most heart-warming story in today's New York Times about an elderly Jewish couple that met and fell in love during the Holocaust.

Boobus Americanus 2: What a testament to the power of love! Even in Hitler's hell, their love for each other still flourished.

Sugar: You sappy frickin' cornballs make me throw up in my frickin' mouth!

Editor: Sugar dear, heaven help the deluded tom-cat that should ever fall in love with you..

Under the ruinous reign of the sodomite couple of Mr. and Mr. Obongo, the Jewish-inspired War on Whites had reached levels of political assertiveness never before seen nor imagined. There were the insults of "White people" which were openly uttered by the deviant duo; the visits to the White House by members of the New Black Panther Party and Black Lives Matter domestic terror groups; the erection of the 30-feet tall statue of Marxist Loser King in Washington DC; the incitement of violence against "racist" TM local police departments; the exalting of the Irreverend Al Charlatan to unofficial adviser-to-the-President status; the public abolition of the Confederate flag throughout much of the South; the announced 2020 replacement of the great Andrew Jackson with a head-shot of Aunt Jemima, er, Harriet Tubman for the $20 bill; and the popularization of the ridiculous new term, "White privilege" TM.

The Marxist War on Whites had never been out in the open like it is now.

Now comes word of the latest in-your-face insult to the good and gentle White people of Dixie -- a monument to the rapists and murderers who were lynched during the days when men were men. We know, we know -- they were all just innocent Black lads who "dindu nuffin" more than get caught innocently, momentarily and furtively glancing at some pretty White girl from a mile away (rolling eyes sarcastically).

Were there some isolated cases of vigilante justice gone awry -- in which an innocent man may have been lynched? It's quite possible. But let's cut the commie crap and tell the whole truth about the lynch mobs which acted between the post-Civil War period and say, 1930. The 4,000 or so deserving recipients of the rope - about 20% of whom were White - got what was coming to them. As a matter of fact, there were also cases of righteous Black mobs lynching Black criminals! (here)

Of course, don't expect the Marxist agitators or their Black front-men behind the Equal Justice Initiative to divulge these historical contexual truths. No, the weak-minded, teary-eyed suckers who will flock to this upcoming eye-sore will be told how 4,000 "dindu nuffins" were killed by big bad White "racists" TM with names like Bubba, Jethro and Billy Bob. That ought to do wonders for "race relations" TM in America!

“Our goal isn’t to be divisive,” says Bryan Stevenson, the director of the Equal Justice Initiative. “Our goal is just to get people to confront the truth of our past with some more courage.” ---- "Not divisive," eh Bryan? Yeah, sure.

Bryan Stevenson (above) intends to peddle a false version of Southern history -- one that contradicts what was accurately portrayed in the classic silent film, Birth of a Nation. Many White women were indeed raped and even murdered. The culprits (be they Black or White) were then lynched by angry mobs of men with balls.

Project Director Stevenson has more communist credentials that you can shake a hammer & sickle at. He is described as a "human rights" TM lawyer, a "social justice" TM activist, a professor at NYU, and a recipient of awards from the Globalist Carnegie and MacArthur foundations. In regard to his race-baiting monument to mendacity, we don't have to read much further to discover who else is buttering Mr. Stevenson's cornbread.

From the article:

"The museum and memorial project, for which Mr. Stevenson said he had raised about 40 percent of a projected $20 million, is the latest and most ambitious undertaking in a continuing effort by Mr. Stevenson to change public awareness of the nation’s racial history. Contributors to the project include the Ford Foundation and Google."

A $20 million dollar super structure to honor rapists and murderers? Wow! With cash from the Ford Foundation and Google, eh Stevenson? Goodness gracious. It doesn't get any more New World Orderish than that. Ah, show us the shekels Lyin' Bryan, show us the shekels.

Let's all gang up on the dispossessed White Boys of America!

Ford Foundation's Black President Darren Walker, Google's Indian CEO Sundar Pichai, and Google's Jewish co-founder Sergei Brin are among the big backers behind the anti-White obscenity which will be built in Alabama.

From the article:

"The memorial will be contain a four-sided gallery of 801 suspended six-foot columns, representing a county where a lynching took place and etched with the name of the person or people lynched."

Need we ask if any of the names of the raped and the murdered will be etched anywhere near the memorial? And speaking of raped and murdered -- we can only guess at how many innocent White people will, over the course of time, be attacked by some of the excitable and inciteable "dindu nuffins" who will surely be dragged to this incendiary monument as part of school field trips. Pour enough hatred into a young man's head and heart, and soon enough he will act upon it. That's the plan, and Stevenson and his bosses bloody damn well know it -- as do the seditious scribblers at Sulzberger's Slimes.

Dear God --- make this evil madness stop already, make it stop.

The sadistic rapist-murderer Leo Frank (cough cough) will no doubt be listed among the phony martyrs of the new monument. In 1913, Frank raped, battered and strangled 13-year old Mary Phagan. When certain interests (cough cough) managed to intervene and spare him from the death penalty, the men of Atlanta stormed the prison and lynched low-life Leo from a tree in 1915. His death inspired the establishment of the Jewish ADL (Anti-Defamation League) -- which has always maintained, quite ironically, that the real culprit was a Black man.

Boobus Americanus 1: I read in The New York Times today about a large monument that is going to be built in Alabama. It will memorialize all the innocent Black victims of lynching.

Boobus Americanus 2: I'd like to see that when it is completed. It's important for the South to finally own up to its past.

LGBT+ people to be stoned or whipped to death in Brunei under new sex law

Amnesty International condemn ‘heinous’ rules introduced as part of Sharia reforms in tiny kingdom

Brunei is set to permit the stoning and whipping to death of LGBT+ people under a series of reforms to its penal code that are attracting international condemnation.

New laws due to come into effect next Wednesday will see the tiny kingdom become the first nation in southeast Asia to impose the death penalty for those found engaging in same-sex intercourse.

Homosexuality was already illegal and carried a long jail sentence in Brunei. However, the country is in the process of introducing a Sharia Law-style system for criminal punishment.

Human rights groups have denounced the move, including Amnesty International, which described the new punishments as “heinous” and “inhumane”.

It said same-sex relations would become a capital offence that could be carried out by whipping or stoning.

Amnesty warned other new laws would permit amputation as a punishment for robbery or theft – a sentence that would also be carried out on children.

“Some of the potential ‘offences’ should not even be deemed crimes at all, including consensual sex between adults of the same gender,” said Rachel Chhoa-Howard, a Brunei researcher for the organisation.

“Brunei must immediately halt its plans to implement these vicious punishments, and revise its penal code in compliance with its human rights obligations.

“The international community must urgently condemn Brunei’s move to put these cruel penalties into practice.”

Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, who rules Brunei by absolute monarchy, first introduced measures under the Sharia Penal Code in 2014, imposing fines or jail terms for offences such as pregnancy out of wedlock or failing to pray on Fridays.

However, laws targeting LGBT+ people were shelved following international protests, including a boycott of the Sultan’s exclusive Beverly Hills Hotel in California.

But it appears the monarch will now implement the legislation, which he has in the past said should be regarded as “special guidance” from god.

Around two thirds of the oil-rich nation’s 417,000 inhabitants are Muslim, while it is also home to significant Christian and Buddhist communities.

There has been no vocal opposition to the new rules in Brunei, where public criticism of the Sultan and his policies are extremely rare.

The country has long been known for conservative policies such as banning the sale of alcohol and it already issues caning as a punishment under secular laws for several crimes including immigration offences.

The last resort
"Were you to glance up from the deserted beach below, you might mistake Tranquility Bay for a rather exclusive hotel.
...
Inside, 250 foreign children are locked up. Almost all are American, but though kept prisoner, they were not sent here by a court of law. Their parents paid to have them kidnapped and flown here against their will, to be incarcerated for up to three years, sometimes even longer. They will not be released until they are judged to be respectful, polite and obedient enough to rejoin their families.
...
Parents sign a legal contract with Tranquility Bay granting 49 per cent custody rights. It permits the Jamaican staff, whose qualifications are not required to exceed a high-school education, to use whatever physical force they feel necessary to control their child. The contract also waives Tranquility's liability for harm that should befall a child in its care.
...
Before sending their teen to Tranquility, parents are advised that it might be prudent to keep their plan a secret, and employ an approved escort service to break the news. The first most teenagers hear of Tranquility is therefore when they are woken from their beds at home at 4am by guards, who place them in a van, handcuffed if necessary, drive them to an airport and fly them to Jamaica. The child will not be allowed to speak to his or her parents for up to six months, or see them for up to a year.
...
Watched by chaperones, you read prescribed course books, take notes, then sit a test after each chapter. Two or three Jamaican teachers sit at the back of the room in case you get stuck, and they may be able to help. But to mark the tests, they have to use an answer key sent down from the States.
...
You may also write home to your parents, and though staff can read your mail, you may write what you like. But Tranquility's handbook for parents warns them not to believe anything that sounds like a 'manipulation', the programme's word for a complaint.
...
Tranquility is basically a private detention camp. But it differs in one important respect. When courts jail a juvenile, he has a fixed sentence and may think what he likes while serving it, whereas no child arrives at Tranquility with a release date. Students are judged ready to leave only when they have demonstrated a sincere belief that they deserved to be sent here, and that the programme has, in fact, saved their life. They must renounce their old self, espouse the programme's belief system, display gratitude for their salvation, and police fellow students who resist.
...
When most children first arrive they find it difficult to believe that they have no alternative but to submit. In shock, frightened and angry, many simply refuse to obey. This is when they discover the alternative. Guards take them (if necessary by force) to a small bare room and make them (again by force if necessary) lie flat on their face, arms by their sides, on the tiled floor. Watched by a guard, they must remain lying face down, forbidden to speak or move a muscle except for 10 minutes every hour, when they may sit up and stretch before resuming the position. Modest meals are brought to them, and at night they sleep on the floor of the corridor outside under electric light and the gaze of a guard. At dawn they resume the position."


That's enough quoting for one OP, but please, read the article. The second page describes the flimsy reasons that parents send their kids to this re-education camp, and the eerie, Stepford behavior of some of the "students".

It's not a school, it's a brainwashing facility. The "teachers" have more qualifications in torture than in education.

How can this possibly be legal? Parents would never be allowed to subject their kids to this here in the U.S., yet apparently they have no legal problem with sending their kids overseas to do it:


Rarely do I read a thread that makes me as nauseous as this one. Not because I'm disgusted with this post or that post but because the wounds are still fresh and painful.

However, I feel it is something of my duty to respond, fighting ignorance and all that.

I am one of those parents who have placed heir child in a 'boot-camp' type of home for troubled teens. This one was in the United States. (It never occurred to me to look outside of the U.S.A.)

For those of you who condem me or call me evil or assume I/m some kind of wierd, bible-thumping, frothing at the mouth loon, well, sorry, I'm not.

I agree that it could seem to be inhumane. I thank God that your home life/childhood/children was such that you are so far away from the anguish of this descision that you cannot imagine being here. Be grateful. (I am at work, so be patient)

When loving parents are faced with this it gets down to a "Sophie's choice" basically. For those who never saw the movie, Sophie was a WW2 Jewish woman who had to choose which child she would take with her to the Nazi work farm and which would be sent to the gas chamber. Horrifying. That's how it felt for his mother and me.

We sent our 15 year old son to that place in December of 2002 and I just came back from picking him up. He's been home for 14 days and whether it helped or not in the long run, well, it's just too early to tell. There is some improvement. He talks to us more readily and he's not lost his temper, yet. I think he's grown up a little.

I'll answer any questions that you may have on the mechanics of the process, the behavior that led us to that point and what we knew or didn't know. I will respectfully try to ignore any comments that assume I am a monster or that are merely insulting.

I am sure that your son was not kidnapped in the middle of the night and flown out of the country.

Actually, he was "kidnapped" in the middle of the night. The advice we recieved from all quarters was that this would be the best way to prevent violence or running away. It was done at 4:00 am and it was handled professionally and safely. It took about 90 seconds from start to finish. Then they drove to the airport. No cuffs.

You didn't read the article, did you? How do you come away with the impression that it doesn't involve physical and psychological abuse?

You bring up a good point. There is physical abuse. There is psychological abuse at these camps.

The problem has 3 reasons, I only speak from my experience.

1. The kids are usually not the best behaved bunch to begn with. They are the tough kids, the mean, nasty kids, the kids who get into fights and who's heroes are the thug-like rap singers and 'ganstas'. You have to be very firm and drill-sergent like in order to be in control or they'd be having chaos.

2. The people that work at these facilities are often just in it for the job. Especially in the south, where alot of these places are, the economy is not yet back on it's feet. If you've been in the military and you need to feed your family, this might not be such a hard way to make a living. Plus, these 'instructors' might be in danger of the prison guard/policeman burnout syndrome. The kind of thinking that has them saying to themselves, "Well, since these punks are all criminals anyway, I'll not feel bad about dishing out a few kicks or punches in the line of duty, they deserve it the little rats."

3. Money. If you staffed these places with trained professional counselors at every position, lots of testing and evaluation at every level. It would cost upwards of $5000.00 a month or more, then, only the rich could afford it. The poor people would have to muddle through as best they can. This is sort of what happens now. It was a real financial sacrifice for us to do this. I wondered if I would be better off renting him an aprtment and paying his utilities until he's 18. It would have been cheaper.

evidence for the resurrection

It’s Easter time once again! A Sunday that marks the single most pivotal point of Christianity. If you want to prove Christianity is a hoax, all you must do is illustrate how the resurrection was a facade. It is absolutely essential to our salvation that Christ conquered death, for if Jesus Christ did not rise from the dead our hope is lost. 1 Corinthians 15:14 likewise states, “And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain.” Without the resurrection our belief is baseless, futile, unfounded, and foolish. So why is it we believe such an outlandish claim could actually happen, superseding the natural laws of earth? Here’s a few reasons…

The Bible is the most historically accurate ancient text in the world — When discussing the validity of history, it’s only reasonable to reference your source that has proven most reliable. The Bible is that source. No other record of ancient history has come CLOSE to matching the reliability of the Bible. If we say the Bible is untrustworthy, we must discard every other historical record as well because the Bible vastly surpasses every test of authenticity as no other book does. More on that here and here.

Yes, Jesus really died - Many people start off with the dispute that maybe Jesus wasn’t really dead. However, that neglects both the historical and circumstancial context. The Romans were masters at execution. They knew how to draw out suffering to the finest line between death and life, make it last for days on end. This was their art form. These men were proficient and practiced. Jesus was tortured, whipped with a scourge that often exposed bone and vital organs, tearing flesh from a body. Many people didn’t survive that alone. He was forced to carry a cross that could have weight up to 300lbs, and he crumpled under the weight, unable to bear it. Nails were driven through his wrist and through both his feet. Make note he would be unable to walk from the pain in his feet, his hands would be rendered useless. The way you hang on a cross causes death by asphyxiation, to breathe you had to push your self up with means grating your torn back against the wood and putting more pressure on the holes ripping your limbs. After Jesus died they speared his side to make certain he was dead and fluid came pouring out. The Romans checked thoroughly to make sure he was dead because they were shocked he died so quickly. He was bloated, swollen, and gored by death on a cross. Even if for arguments sake, Jesus was not yet dead, being in a tomb for three days would indisputably see to that. If blood loss didn’t kill him, infection certainly would. Additionally, Luke, one of eyewitnesses who recorded the events, was a doctor so his perspective is a notably authoritative one. (Luke 23-24).

The tomb was empty - There is no possible way Jesus, weakened to the point where the Roman masters of execution called his death, unable to use his hands or feet due to the spikes pounded into them, was able to roll away a MASSIVE boulder and over power two trained and able-bodied Roman soldiers. The idea that Jesus didn’t fully die on the cross and escaped the tomb is absurd. Furthermore, the guards stationed to prevent anyone from robbing the tomb and the Roman seal on the two-ton rock ensured that anyone who dared to even attempt to move it faced the death penalty themselves. If the guards themselves fell asleep they faced the same fate. There was a LOT at stake if Jesus’ body was taken, the Romans were taking no chances. Every other argument for the absence of Jesus’ body can quickly be dismantled by historical context and the circumstances by which these things took place.

It was prophesied - Isaiah talks about the particular circumstances of Jesus death, such as no bones would be broken, an unusual anomaly when it came to crucifixion. Jesus himself also foretells that he will rise within three days. Even smaller details like casting lots for His garments were spoken of hundreds of years before Jesus was born. Other prophesies like this show that Jesus’ death was no accident, God knew what He was doing. (Isaiah 52:13-53:12; John 18-20)

Eyewitness accounts - Jesus appeared to over 500 people after His resurrection, many of whom were alive at the time of the gospels being written and therefore could confirm or dispute their accuracy (1 Corinthians 15:6) Among those include the disciples, Mary Magdalene, and Paul the former murderer of Christians. The Bible records accounts of skeptism and unbelief, but they saw the scars on his hands, touched his solid flesh before them, heard his familiar voice, and they believed because of it. Paul became that which he initially DESPISED because of his encounter with Jesus Christ, that alone is a mind-blowing testimony. The man who hunted and killed Christians became a Christian who was willing to be tortured and killed because he so strongly believed in the saving death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The apostles went from hiding in extreme fear to preaching the gospel in the face of deadly persecution - When Jesus died the apostles went into hiding. They were TERRIFIED that the Romans, the other Jews, would come after them next. Yet, after Jesus appears, they’re fearlessly preaching the gospel out in open crowds of THOUSANDS. It’s a dramatic switch of perspective. To go from quivering fear to such emboldened confidence, surely seeing Jesus standing risen before you would give you that kind of intrepidation. There is little else to explain how these men were suddenly ready to risk everything after being afraid to admit they ever knew Jesus just days before.

Apostles willing to die for Jesus - Now some people say the apostles stole the body of Jesus to convince people to turn to Christianity. The Bible says that lie was started by the Romans in order to discredit the apostles. However, almost all of the apolstles died for preaching the gospel, and all of them were severely persecuted. Why would they exchange their lives, their health, their reputation, their livelihoods, their comfort for something they knew was a lie? It simply makes no sense. The only logical conclusion is that they believed Jesus was the resurrected Christ.

Appearing to a woman first was a dumb move - The testimony of a woman would not be as respected as than of a man in those times. If Jesus’ resurrection was a ruse, the logical thing to do would be to claim he was seen by a male dignitary of noble standing, not a woman who had been previously possessed by demons - a social blemish (Luke 8:2). “Unflattering” facts like this, the cowardis of the apolstles, their initial skeptism, not recognizing Jesus right away, etc. lend to the credit of the account because it demonstrates an accurate retelling, not a fabrication that was crafted to deceptively sway the masses into false belief.

Vision, hallucination unlikely due to number of witnesses and circumstances - Jesus didn’t appear to two people and then go back to Heaven. He appeared to over 500 in all sorts of different locations. People who weren’t looking for him, people who didn’t believe it was Him until they had proof. Proof so certain that they were no longer afraid, they were filled with unextinguishable hope. We must also realize the historical context of the time in which it took place. It’s much easier to fabricate this kind of illusion today with the technology and way by which we pass on information. The time period in which the resurrection took place adds merit that should not be ignored. News was circulated in a manner that was unique to our present day process.

Non-Christian historians record the resurrection - Josephus, a renowned secular historian at the time of Jesus’ death, writes, “On the third day He appeared… restored to life.” It should be noted there are many who debate the reliability of Josephus’ words regarding the resurrection, however, many historians find this evidence to support the Bible’s claims.

The persecution of the early church - Under Nero’s reign the early church suffered some of the most violent persecution, not to mention the Jewish leaders who also sought to kill the Christians. The steadfast resolve of a Church who was in its infant stage is astounding. The only explanation is that they all genuinely believed in the resurrection. They had nothing to gain and everything to lose by preaching the gospel, yet they did so freely despite the cost. If Christianity was based on a lie, it should have been easy to crush it as it was beginning. The fact that the force of the entire Roman Empire wasn’t enough to sway their devotion is incredible. The whole of the known world tried to annihilate Christianity in the cradle but couldn’t.

It is the accumulation of evidence that begs cause for belief - It is not for one singular reason that we believe Jesus rose from the dead, but rather the combined evidence that demands an explanation% that only the Bible provides. The proven accuracy of the Bible, the eyewitnesses details; the historical records of Jesus walking, eating, alive; the unexplainable absence in the tomb despite all efforts to seal it; the prophesies fulfilled; the change in people’s lives, the martyrs, the flourishing of the church in the face of persecution. It all points back to Jesus rising from the dead as the only reasonable explanation. The Bible consistently presents answers to questions the world has no answer for.

Amputation is a last resort of the medical science to save the life of a person at the brink of death. A limb or a foot affected by gangrene may cause the death of a person; but because of amputation, people are saved from death. This is in conformity with the Biblical and scientific knowledge written in the book of Matthew 5.

(Matthew 5:29-30) “And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.”

Therefore, it is very clear that the Bible was not written by primitive people as these ‘imaginary idiots’ claim; And its content did not come from a primitive mind, but from a scientific and sensible mind that knows that amputation may heal the entire being of a person.

Also , no real Christian believes or says that they are without sin. Duggar has never said that he was sinless. The difference is that he is a saved sinner , struggling and fighting the good fight of faith against the world , the flesh and the devil. He does not believe he is sinless but he believes and understands that he is saved from the everlasting consequences of hell because of those sins . He is trusting in the shed blood of The LORD Jesus Christ . He has never justified his sins by ever saying they were and are not sins. That is what you do though. You as an unbeliever have never confessed that you are a lost sinner deserving of hell. You have never agreed with God about your sin and neither have you turned to God and placed your faith and trust toward The LORD Jesus Christ so that you can have forgiveness and thus not spend forever in Hell and The Lake of Fire. From the moment you " ..obey from the heart" The Gospel and experience the New Birth ( John 3:3; 1st Peter 1:23), you will then understand what real peace is and not ever have to fear going to hell. You will begin a journey that has it's up's and downs , but eventually the assurance of heaven . Everlasting life begins the moment you become born again. God may have to chasten his children because of disobedience ,as we have seen and probably may continue to see in the life of Josh Duggar, but ultimately we will end up in Heaven because of The Work of The LORD Jesus Christ at Calvary . God chastens those He loves .

Speaking to His church and individual believers , God says, "Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. 9Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? 10For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. 11Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby." ( Hebrews 12:1-11)KJB.

[From "The Men of Magnolia"]

What often comes to mind when thinking of Mississippi? The images are most likely not very flattering and often tend to be a bit stereotypical. The Magnolia State receives much criticism and condescending feelings from many who do not live there and from a few who do. While the beliefs and ideas espoused by normies is typical as per their brainwashing, what perplexes the mind is the lack of admiration for and lack of attention that Mississippi receives from Southern Nationalists, possibly due to it sending fewer men to fight than other states in the Confederacy or having very few known leaders or generals during that war.

Maybe it is because of the lack of notability of much of its political leadership following the War until at least the 1960’s. Perhaps it is simply a lackluster state. Despite the lack of attention it garners, Mississippi produced many of the best and staunchest Southern Democrats of the 20th Century. Many were firebrands and did drum up the ire of social media and the government in their fights against the communist-backed Civil Rights Movement and worked diligently to stave off its success, one in particular even writing a book in defense of segregation. This article seeks to shed some light on a few of these great men and justify why Mississippi is the most underrated state in Dixie among Southern Nationalists.

John E. Rankin

John Elliot Rankin served as a state representative to the House for sixteen consecutive terms from 1920 to 1952. What makes him stand out among the other men mentioned on this list is his willingness to work extensively within, what was at the time, the liberalizing Democratic Party in order to benefit Mississippi, as well as, ensure segregation remained in effect without butting heads with other congressman. While he worked to ensure his state’s voice was heard in Congress, much to the chagrin of the many liberal northern Democrats, he supported FDR’s New Deal programs as an attempt to spur development and investment in poor rural areas, even coauthoring the Tennessee Valley Authority. He also supported the Serviceman’s Readjustment Act of 1944.

Despite his support for the New Deal, he supported the Serviceman’s Readjustment Act of 1944 being distributed in a decentralized manner to the states, thus allowing Jim Crow laws to be utilized when enforcing this act in the South. He hated the UN, seeing it as a threat to America and stated, “The United Nations is the greatest fraud in all History. Its purpose is to destroy the United States.” He was also known for his hatred of communists, even helping establish the House Un-American Activities Committee. He did all this and much more in his passion to fight against communists in the government, as well as, maintain the representation of his people within the government, a trait far too uncommon today.

Fielding L. Wright

Fielding Lewis Wright never served any offices above the state level. Following his service during World War I, he served in the Mississippi Senate and House and eventually went on to be lieutenant governor to Thomas Lowry Bailey. He took the position of governor when Bailey died in 1946 and was reelected as governor in 1947. He governed Mississippi during a time of drastic change. The South, being heavily rural, was working to industrialize and modernize its economy following World War II. Wright worked to ensure this happened. He also focused greatly on the Civil Rights issue, states’ rights and segregation, which ultimately resulted in his political wins as governor.

However, he did not always achieve success. Wright is most well known for running on the vice presidential ticket for the Dixiecrat Party in 1948, a party which failed to win the election and disbanded shortly after. He did not succeed politically following the end of his governor term in 1952 and was defeated, returning to his old job of law practice.

Theodore G. Bilbo

Theodore Gilmore Bilbo served two non-consecutive governor terms, once from 1916 to 1920 and a second time from 1928 to 1932, and was later elected to the US Senate from 1935 to 1947. Prior to this, he served in the Mississippi Senate and was lieutenant governor. His term as governor was quite successful in implementing progressive policies, managing to organize state finances, reform education policies, build a charity hospital, create a board of bank examiners and ban public hangings. He earned the nickname “Bilbo the Builder” because of his success in authorizing a state highway system, building lime-crushing plants, establishing new dormitories at the Old Soldiers’ Home, constructing a tuberculosis hospital and working toward the eradication of the South American tick. His political career is filled with many projects, events and ideas he undertook.

Despite having done so much as governor, what he is most well known for were his racial attitudes, as well as, his time in the US Senate. He spent much of his time feuding with other members of Congress, especially another Mississippi Senator by the name of Pat Harrison. Bilbo represented the poor tenant farmers, whereas Harrison represented the upper-class planters and merchants. Bilbo also drew much criticism for his outspoken views on racial segregation; in fact, he is the only person on this list who was a member of the Ku Klux Klan. However, like most other Democrats, he did support FDR’s New Deal administration and even proposed an amendment to the federal work relief bill that would have deported millions of blacks to Liberia. He came up with the idea out of inspiration from beliefs espoused by black separatists such as Marcus Garvey.

He may have done quite a lot in regards to upholding segregation and supporting it orally, but the staple of his racial legacy was his book Take Your Choice: Separation or Mongrelization. In this book, Bilbo summarized his views on race and segregation. Unfortunately, he died in 1947 not long after the book was published. Interestingly enough, on his deathbed, he requested the black editor of the newspaper Negro South to publish the statement, “I am honestly against the social intermingling of Negroes and Whites but I hold nothing personal against the Negroes as a race. They should be proud of their God-given heritage just as I am proud of mine. I believe Negroes should have the right [to indiscriminate use of the ballot], and in Mississippi too—when their main purpose is not to put me out of office and when they won’t try to besmirch the reputation of my state.” He was quite an interesting man indeed.

Ross Robert Barnett

By far the most notable person on this list, Ross Robert Barnett was the Governor of Mississippi from 1960 to 1964. This man was a firebrand and carried that image anywhere he went; his gubernatorial campaign included its own song, based off the state anthem “Go Mississippi.” He garnered spotlight for being an outspoken, staunch segregationist, especially for being a governor with those views during the most intense leftist Civil Rights push. He allowed for the arrests of various Civil Rights activists and Freedom Riders and was a member of the Citizens’ Council. He also fought in a vain attempt to keep Ole Miss, his alma mater, from being integrated. On the eve of the Ole Miss riot of 1962, he attended the Ole Miss vs Kentucky Wildcats game. The crowd numbered roughly 41,000, waving countless rebel flags and unveiling a huge rebel flag on the field. When the student body shouted “We want Ross!” he stepped out onto the field and shouted the now famous sixteen word speech: “I love Mississippi! I love her people! Our customs. I love and I respect our heritage.”

Barnett continued to work against integration, but to no avail. Interestingly enough about him, he was a Baptist Sunday School teacher and often espoused Biblical views on racial separation. He made statements such as “The Good Lord was the original segregationist. He put the black man in Africa. … He made us white because he wanted us white, and He intended that we should stay that way.”

Unfortunately, Barnett would only serve one term as governor. He served in other lower positions and areas of influence, but never again saw the same level of political success and popularity as he had during his time as governor. He is the only person on this list to actually live to see the Civil Rights Movement’s conclusion and is one of the few Southern politicians who lived afterwards for several years to never renounce or backtrack any of his previous racial views and stated, “Generally speaking, I’d do the same things again.”

Mississippi produced some of the finest men in Dixie and still does. It may not have shined during the War of Northern Aggression quite as much as states like Virginia or Tennessee, but it proved its mettle and worth during the Jim Crow Era, specifically, the latter part of it. Mississippi is a beautiful state with a long history of hardiness and stalwart men who refused to cave to the ideals of the weak and evil men. These weak men now control much of the government and more continue to flood here, fleeing the messes they made of their homes in the North and on the West Coast.

It is quite unfortunate that the Magnolia State does not receive the love it most certainly deserves, as the Men of Magnolia were truly some of the best.

Ted Weiland #fundie constitutionmythbusters.org

As Creator, the Potter has the authority to do with His pots whatever He chooses. As Sovereign, He has the right to do whatever He decides with His entire creation. In fact, He’s the only one with this right. As the Potter, all rights are exclusive to Him.

“Certainly, we have a right to life!”

Do we? Does man have a right to life? Or is even the right to life exclusive to God?

If man has a right to life, that right then dictates God was obligated to create us. If this is true, who’s really the prime cause: the Creator who was obliged to provide the right or the created who had the right to life?

Only Yahweh has a right to life. It’s inherent in who and what He is: I Am That I Am—the great and only self-existing I Am That I Am.

For us, life is not a right. It’s first a gift from the Life Giver and then a responsibility. We are obligated to use our lives as intended by the One who gave us life. To claim life as our right is to eliminate any requirement of responsibility to our Creator. In reality, it’s an attempt to usurp His exclusive claim to sovereignty.

The inherent problem in claiming even life as a right should be obvious. Is it any different with other rights—even those enshrined in the Bill of Rights, which are hallowed by most Americans, particularly Christians?

Most Americans view the first Ten Amendments to the Constitution as sacrosanct and inviolable. But this is the song of a siren.

The First Amendment’s guaranteed “rights”

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech or the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Are these rights enumerated in the First Amendment biblical? If they’re biblical, they’re guaranteed by Yahweh. If guaranteed by Yahweh, they should be found in the Bible. If they’re not biblical, they’re “guaranteed” by someone else who can and has incrementally taken them away:

In Understanding the Constitution: Ten Things Every Christian Should Know About the Supreme Law of the Land, David Gibbs, Jr., and David Gibbs III argue for unalienable rights:

Our rights come from God, not from the state. Therefore, the state cannot take them away. What Uncle Sam gives, Uncle Sam can take away. But our nation’s birth certificate, the Declaration of Independence makes clear that our rights are unalienable because they come from God.

This sounds wonderful, but is it true? The State has certainly taken away an unwanted infant’s right to life. The State has incrementally taken away gun owners’ Second Amendment rights. The State has taken away the right to happiness, in particular the right to own property. Because rights come from the State, the State can take them away at its pleasure.

The right to religion

What about the First Amendment’s right to religion as provided in the Free Exercise Clause? Does man have a right to whatever religion and god he chooses? If so, how does this comport with the First Commandment?

I am Yahweh thy God…. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. (Exodus 20:2-3)

For thou shalt worship no other god: for Yahweh, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. (Exodus 34:14)

Man may choose to follow a god other than Yahweh, but he does not have the right to do so. It logically follows: Should government then provide such a right? If it does, what’s this say about such a government?

If it’s your right to choose any god you prefer, you cannot be judged for doing so. And if you can’t be judged for choosing another god, who’s really sovereign?

It’s not our sovereign right to choose our god but God’s sovereign right to choose us. Consequently, the alleged right to choose one’s god is itself a claim to divinity, tantamount to what was offered Adam and Eve in the Garden, “Ye shall be as gods!”

Christians need to rethink their love affair with First Amendment’s seditious “right” to religion. It was provided not by Yahweh, but by a group of Theistic Rationalists and Enlightenment Freemasons, whose ideological paradigm is polytheistic to its core.

The First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause is responsible for transforming America from what was a predominantly monotheistic Christian nation (a united nation under one God) into one of the most polytheistic nations ever (a divided nation under many gods). It is arguably the most clever cover devised by man for sedition against Yahweh. It certainly has duped the majority of Christians into promoting the First Amendment as if some grand Christian ideal is found therein.

Only the Sovereign has a right to religion.

My father is a janitor responsible for cleaning residential areas. At 7 a.m. on August 25, 2017, he was in an accident in his truck and sustained serious injuries. His legs were stuck in the truck and the bleeding wouldn't stop. He couldn't move. Emergency crews didn't get him to the hospital until 9:40 a.m. He lost so much blood that he was in a coma. When he came to after the doctors worked on him, they said he needed a blood transfusion immediately.

There were no blood supplies in the hospital. The blood did not arrive until 1:00 p.m. Because he lost so much blood, his internal organs started to shut down. The moment blood went in, it would come right out of the wounds in his legs. The doctors warned my family of my father’s condition and told us to be prepared for the worst. My mother, my sister, and I were all in shock and could not believe what was happening. My two aunts came and immediately told us to recite sincerely, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” They told us to ask for Master's protection.

When I was very young, everyone in my grandmother’s family practiced Falun Dafa. Although my mother hasn’t been very diligent in cultivation, she often shared with us wonderful things about Dafa. My two aunts also told us the truth about Dafa when they saw us in person. Because of this, my sister and I respect Dafa from the bottom of our hearts although we are not practitioners. We witnessed the miraculous effect it had on my grandmother, who is close to 90. She has been very healthy and not taken a single pill in the past over-20 years since she started practicing Dafa.

My sister and I immediately recited, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” My aunts and my mother also sent forth righteous thoughts next to my father. In the meantime, we agreed with the doctors’ decision to amputate my father's leg(s). At around 4:00 p.m., my father had to be transferred to another hospital for the operation. Doctors at that hospital also said that my father’s condition was not promising.

At around 6:00 p.m., the doctors recommended that the operation begin immediately. The complex surgery would take over five hours. I signed the paperwork with a heavy heart and sent everyone home to rest while my father was in the operating room. My sister, my brother-in-law, and I waited outside. At around 11:30 p.m., a doctor opened the operating room door and told us to see my father one last time as his heart had already stopped beating. While the doctors were working to resuscitate him again, my mother was sent for. She asked us to get our aunt there immediately.

When my aunt arrived, she reminded us to recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” My mother, sister, and I kept sending forth righteous thoughts. After 30 minutes, the doctors told us that my father’s condition had miraculously stabilized. We became confident and continued to recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

On the third day, my father woke up. The doctors warned us that, due to the huge blood loss, my father’s organs and brain had suffered significant damage. However, all the tests he had after he woke up came back normal. My mother was afraid that my father might have lost his memory. It turned out that he could clearly remember everything regarding the accident. The doctors could not believe it. They kept saying that it was a miracle and that my father was very lucky. My family has been very happy. We know that Master gave my father another chance at life. We are so grateful to Master and Dafa.

My father also firmly believes in Dafa now. He listens to Master’s lectures every day and has completely recovered. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to our revered Master!

A Conversation on Race — Paul Craig Roberts

We often hear that we need a conversation on race. Considering that Americans are a brainwashed people living in a false history, such a conversation would resemble the one the Russians were expected to have with the British in regard to the Skripal poisoning: “Yes, we are guilty. We will pay reparations. Where would you like us to send Putin for trial?” In other words, the only acceptable race conversation in the US is one in which white people accept the accusation that they are racist and offer to make amends.

Considering that the only slavery experienced by any living black or white person is income tax slavery, race is an issue only because it has been orchestrated as an issue along with gender and sexual preference. These divisive issues are the products of Identity Politics spawned by cultural Marxism.

In real Marxism, conflict is class conflict. Workers and capitalists have different interests, and history is a struggle between material interests. The capitalist is the villain and the workers are the victims.

In the pseudo Marxism of Identity Politics, the white race is the villain, especially the white heterosexual male, and racial minorities, women, and homosexuals are the victims.

There is, of course, no such thing as a white or black race. There are many different nationalities of whites, and they have done a good job throughout history of killing each other. Similarly, there are many different black tribes and Asian ethnicities who also have fought more among themselves than with others. But all of this goes by the wayside, along with the fact that in the world the “racial minorities” are actually majorities and the “white majority” is actually a minority. There are more Chinese or Indians alone than there are white people.

But orchestrated histories are not fact-based.

The working class, designated by Hillary Clinton as “the Trump deplorables,” is now the victimizer, not the victim. Marxism has been stood on its head.

The American ruling class loves Identity Politics, because Identity Politics divides the people into hostile groups and prevents any resistance to the ruling elite. With blacks screaming at whites, women screaming at men, and homosexuals screaming at heterosexuals, there is no one left to scream at the rulers.

The ruling elite favors a “conversation on race,” because the ruling elite know it can only result in accusations that will further divide society. Consequently, the ruling elite have funded “black history,” “women’s studies,” and “transgender dialogues,” in universities as a way to institutionalize the divisiveness that protects them. These “studies” have replaced real history with fake history.

For example, it was once universally known that black slavery originated in slave wars between black African tribes. Slaves were a status symbol, but they accumulated beyond the capacity of tribes to sustain. The surplus was exported first to Arabs and then to English, Spanish, and French who founded colonies in the new world that had resources but no work force. The socialist scholar Karl Polanyi, brother of my Oxford professor Michael Polanyi, told the story of the origin of the African slave trade in his famous book, Dahomey and the Slave Trade.

The first slaves in the new world were white. When real history was taught, this was widely understood. Movies were even made that showed that in King George III’s England, the alternative to criminal punishment was to be sold as a slave in the colonies. See, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAgfWhlc3gQ

Among the first New World lands to be exploited by the Europeans were the Carribean Islands, which were suitable for sugar and rice production. The problem was that the white slaves died like flies from malaria and yellow fever. The Spanish lack of success with a work force of natives of the lands they conquered led those in search of a work force to the slave export business of the black Kingdom of Dahomey. The demand for black workers rose considerably when it was discovered that many had immunity to malaria and resistance to yellow fever. This meant that a plantation’s investment in a work force was not wiped out by disease.

The resistance of blacks to malaria is due to the protective feature of the sickle cell trait that, apparently, only blacks have. See: https://www.cdc.gov/malaria/about/biology/sickle_cell.html

Slavery existed in the New World long before the United States came into existence. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are today written off by Identity Politics as racists simply because they were born when slavery was a pre-existing institution.

Slavery had existed for many centuries prior to the Confederacy. Yet, in some accounts today one comes away with the impression that the South invented slavery. As the tale sometimes goes, Southern racists so hated blacks that they went to Africa, captured blacks at great expense, only to return them to the South where they whipped and abused their investments to the point of death and demoralized their work force by breaking up black families, selling children in one direction and wives and husbands in the other. This tale is not told as an occasional abuse but as the general practice. Economically, of course, it makes no sense whatsoever. But facts are no longer part of American history.

Northern states held slaves as well. However, the predominance of slaves were in the South. This was not because Southerners hated blacks. It was because the land in the South supported large agricultural cultivation, and there was no other work force. The South, like the United States, inherited slavery from the work force that European colonists purchased from the black Kingdom of Dahomey.

Why wasn’t there an alternative work force to slaves? The reason is that new immigrants by moving West could take land from the native Americans and be independent as opposed to being wage earners working on someone else’s land. The Western frontier did not close until about 1900. At the time of the War of Northern Aggression the Plains Indians still ruled west of the Mississippi River. It was Lincoln’s Northern war criminals, Sherman and Sheridan, who were sent to exterminate the Plains Indians. Ask the American natives, or what is left of them, who the racists are: the Northerners or the Southerners.

Black studies has even corrupted other aspects of history. Consider the so-called “civil war.” The name itself is an orchestration. There was no civil war. There was a War of Northern Aggression. A civil war is when two sides fight for control of the government. The South had left the union and had no interest whatsoever in controlling the government in Washington. The only reason the South fought was that the South was invaded by the North.

Why did the North invade the South? As was once understood by every historian and every student, Abraham Lincoln invaded the South in order, in Lincoln’s own words, expressed time and time again, “to preserve the Union.”

Why did the South leave the Union? Because it was being economically exploited by the North, which, once the North gained the ability to outvote the Southern states, imposed tariffs that benefited the North at the expense of the South. The North needed protection from British manufactures in order for the economic rise of the North. In contrast, the South’s economy was based on cotton exports to England and on cheap manufactures imported from England. Tariffs would bring the South higher cost of manufactured goods and retaliation against their cotton exports. The economic interests of the North and South did not coincide.

Slavery had nothing whatsoever to do with the war. Lincoln himself said so over and over. Prior to his invasion of the South, Lincoln and the Northern Congress promised the South Constitutional protection of slavery for all time if the Southern states would stay in the Union. Historians who have read and recorded the war correspondence of both Union and Confederacy soldiers to relatives and friends at home can find no one fighting for or against slavery. The Northern troops are fighting to preserve the union. The Southern ones are fighting because they are invaded.

Nothing could be clearer. Yet, the myth has been established that Abraham Lincoln went to war in order to free the slaves. In fact, Lincoln said that blacks were not capable of living with whites, who he said were superior, and that his intention was to send the blacks back to Africa. If America ever had a “white supremacist,” it was Abraham Lincoln.

What about the Emancipation Proclamation? Didn’t this order by Lincoln free the blacks? No. It was a war measure on which hopes were placed that, as almost every able-bodied Southern male was in the front lines, the slaves would revolt and rape the Southern soldiers’ wives and daughters, forcing the soldiers to desert the army and return home to protect their families. As Lincoln’s own Secretary of State said, the president has freed the slaves in the territories that the Union does not control and left them in slavery in the territory that the Union does control.

Why did Lincoln resort to such a dishonorable strategy? The reason is that Lincoln had run through all the Union generals and could not find one that could defeat Robert E. Lee’s vastly outnumbered Army of Northern Virginia.

The character and generalship of Robert E. Lee, who is dismissed by Identity Politics as a white racist, is so highly admired by the United States Army that the Barracks at West Point are named in Lee’s honor. Not even “America’s first black president” was able to change that. Black history also covers up the fact that Robert E. Lee was offered command of the Union Army. In those days Americans still saw themselves as citizens of their state, not as citizens of the US. Lee refused the offer on the grounds that he could not go to war against his native country of Virginia and resigned his US Army commission.

If Lee had been in command of the Confederacy at the First Battle of Bull Run when the Union Army broke and ran all the way back to Washington, Lee would have followed and the war would have ended with the South’s victory.

But Lee wasn’t there. Instead, the Southern generals concluded, watching the fleeing Union Army, that the Northerns could neither fight, retreat in order, or ride horses, and were no threat whatsoever. This conclusion overlooked the superior manpower of the North, the constant inflow of Irish immigrants who became the Union’s cannon fodder, the Northern manufacturing capability, and the navy that could block Southern ports and starve the South of resources.

During the first two years of the War of Northern Aggression the Union Army never won a battle against Lee’s vastly outgunned army. The North had everything. All the South had was valor. Lincoln was desperate. Opposition to his war was rising in the North. He had to imprison 300 Northern newspaper editors, exile a US Congressman, and was faced with the North’s most famous general running against him on a peace platform in the next election. Thus, Lincoln’s vain attempt to provoke a slave rebellion in the South. Why didn’t such allegedly horribly treated and oppressed slaves revolt when there was no one to prevent it but women and children?

Everything I have written in this column was once understood by everyone. But it has all been erased and replaced with a false history that serves the ruling elite. It is not only the ruling elite that has a vested interest in the false history of “white racism,” but also the universities and history departments in which the false history is institutionalized and the foundations that have financed black history, women’s studies, and transgender dialogues.

It was Reconstruction that ruined relations between blacks and whites in the South. The North stuffed blacks down the throats of the defeated South. Blacks were placed in charge of Southern governments in order to protect the Northern carpet baggers who looted and stole from the South. The occupying Union Army encouraged the blacks to abuse the Southern people, especially the women, as did the Union soldiers. The Klu Klux Klan arose as a guerrilla force to stop the predations. Robert E. Lee himself said that if he had realized how rapacious the North would prove to be, he would have led a guerrilla resistance.

The generations of Americans who have been propagandized instead of educated need to understand that Reconstruction did not mean rebuilding southern infrastructure, cities, and towns destroyed by the Union armies. It did not mean reconstructing southern food production. It meant reconstructing southern society and governance. Blacks, who were unprepared for the task, were put in control of governments so that carpetbaggers could loot and steal. Whites lost the franchise and protection of law as their property was stolen. Some areas suffered more than others from the Reconstruction practices, which often differed from, and were worse than, the policies themselves.

Reconstruction was a contentious issue even within the Republican Party. Neither president Lincoln nor Johnson would go along with the more extreme Republican elements. The extremism of the Reconstruction policies lost support among the northern people. When the Democrats regained control of the House of Representatives in the 1870s, Reconstruction was brought to an end.

In the South, and most certainly in Atlanta, where I grew up, schools were neighborhood schools. We were segregated by economic class. I went to school with middle class kids from my middle class neighborhood. I did not go to school with rich kids or with poor kids. This segregation was not racial.

When the North again got on its high moral horse and imposed school integration on the South, it disrupted the neighborhood school system. Now kids spent hours riding in school busses to distant locations. This destroyed the parent-teacher associations that had kept parental involvement and displinine in the schools. The South, being a commonsense people, saw all of this coming. The South also saw Reconstruction all over again. That, and not hatred of blacks, is the reason for the South’s resistance to school integration.

All of America, indeed of the entire West, lives in The Matrix, a concocted reality, except for my readers and the readers of a handful of others who cannot be compromised. Western peoples are so propagandized, so brainwashed, that they have no understanding that their disunity was created in order to make them impotent in the face of a rapacious ruling class, a class whose arrogance and hubris has the world on the brink of nuclear Armageddon.

History as it actually happened is disappearing as those who tell the truth are dismissed as misogynists, racists, homophobes, Putin agents, terrorist sympathizers, anti-semites, and conspiracy theorists. Liberals who complained mightily of McCarthyism now practice it ten-fold.

The brainwashing about the Russian and Muslim threats works for a number of reasons. The superpatriots among the Trump deplorables feel that their patriotism requires them to believe the allegations against Russia, Syria, Iran, and China. Americans employed in the vast military/security complex understand that the budget that funds the complex in which they have their careers is at stake. Those who want a wall to keep out foreigners go along with the demonization of Muslims as terrorists who have to be killed “over there before they come over here.” The Democrats want an excuse for having lost the presidential election. And so on. The agendas of various societal elements come together to support the official propaganda.

The United States with its brainwashed and incompetent population—indeed, the entirety of the Western populations are incompetent—and with its absence of intelligent leadership has no chance against Russia and China, two massive countries arising from their overthrow of police states as the West descends into a gestapo state. The West is over and done with. Nothing remains of the West but the lies used to control the people. All hope is elsewhere.

Ahhhh you poor poor delusional moronic douche canoe. It is truly sad that people LIKE YOU have access to the internet and refuse to do any actual research. Then have the audacity to post BS statements that have ZERO actuality to them. But, let me just school you and show you EXACTLY how asinine you and those that follow and believe you, truly are. Those that know the truth are laughing at you and your followers…laughing hysterically as a matter of fact. It must be painful to be that out of touch.

Prior to 2010, the following is what readers got when they clicked on the Democrats.org “History” button….
Democrats are unwavering in our support of equal opportunity for all Americans. That’s why we’ve worked to pass every one of our nation’s Civil Rights laws, and every law that protects workers. Most recently, Democrats stood together to reauthorize the Voting Rights Act.
On every civil rights issue, Democrats have led the fight. We support vigorous enforcement of existing laws, and remain committed to protecting fundamental civil rights in America.

This is the kind of BS spewed by Democrats on a daily basis, and unfortunately the media and other so-called watchdogs are so apparently ignorant of American history, Democrats continue to LIE through their teeth to their constituents, and via academia, to our kids. Despite the truth being out there for years, it’s probably not going to explode until some big shot news anchor gives us an “exclusive expose” bringing us all those facts first, so he/she can proudly receive a Pulitzer…

And let’s not forget the words of liberal icon Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood…We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably
with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The
most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious
appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate
the Negro population…so the next time any Democrat claims they’ve been supportive of civil rights in America (and been so all along), ask them to explain their past. “We’ve grown” is not gonna cut it, considering they continue to
lie about their past to this day, and only someone lacking in common
sense would believe two distinct political parties could juxtaposition
their stances on civil rights seemingly overnight.

The left is quite annoyed that myself and others dare link the racist, segregationist past in this country to Democrats, at that flies
in the face of everything they claim to champion, when it comes to civil
rights, racial tolerance, etc.

The Democrats’ own website,
to this day, attempts to take fraudulently credit for the civil rights
movement and legislation, and when called on it, the recitation is the
same: “we’ve grown” and “don’t forget about the Dixiecrats”.

Defensive liberals claim the Dixiecrats, as a whole, defected from the Democrat Party when President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (no thanks to Democrats), and became Republicans which they claimed were more accepting of segregationist policies.

Well, I decided to get some opinions on the matter from some historians.I contacted Professor Larry Schweikart of the University of Dayton for advice. Larry and I worked on a documentary based on a chapter on Ronald Reagan from his best-selling book, A Patriot’s History of the United States.

The idea that “the Dixiecrats joined the Republicans” is
not quite true, as you note. But because of Strom Thurmond it is
accepted as a fact. What happened is that the **next** generation (post
1965) of white southern politicians — Newt, Trent Lott, Ashcroft,
Cochran, Alexander, etc — joined the GOP.

So it was really a passing of the torch as the old segregationists
retired and were replaced by new young GOP guys. One particularly
galling aspect to generalizations about “segregationists became GOP” is
that the new GOP South was INTEGRATED for crying out loud, they accepted
the Civil Rights revolution. Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter led a group of
what would become “New” Democrats like Clinton and Al Gore.

Larry also suggested I contact Mike Allen, Professor of History at
the University of Washington, Tacoma (who also appeared in the Reagan
documentary) for input.
There weren’t many Republicans in the South prior to 1964, but that doesn’t mean the birth of the souther GOP was tied to “white racism.” That said, I am sure there were and are white racist southern GOP. No one would deny that. But it was the southern Democrats who were the party of slavery and, later, segregation. It was George Wallace, not John Tower, who stood in the southern schoolhouse door to block desegregation! The vast majority of Congressional GOP voted FOR the Civil Rights of 1964-65. The vast majority of those opposed to thoseacts were southern Democrats. Southern Democrats led to infamous filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

The confusion arises from GOP Barry Goldwater’s vote against the ’64
act. He had voted in favor or all earlier bills and had led the
integration of the Arizona Air National Guard, but he didn’t like the
“private property” aspects of the ’64 law. In other words, Goldwater
believed people’s private businesses and private clubs were subject only
to market forces, not government mandates (“We reserve the right to
refuse service to anyone.”) His vote against the Civil Rights Act was
because of that one provision was, to my mind, a principled mistake.

This stance is what won Goldwater the South in 1964, and no doubt
many racists voted for Goldwater in the mistaken belief that he opposed
Negro Civil Rights. But Goldwater was not a racist; he was a libertarian
who favored both civil rights and property rights.

Switch to 1968.Richard Nixon was also a proponent of Civil Rights;
it was a CA colleague who urged Ike to appoint Warren to the Supreme Court; he was asupporter of Brown v. Board, and favored sending troops to integrate
Little Rock High). Nixon saw he could develop a “Southern strategy”
based on Goldwater’s inroads. He did, but Independent Democrat George
Wallace carried most of the deep south in 68. By 1972, however, Wallace
was shot and paralyzed, and Nixon began to tilt the south to the GOP.
The old guard Democrats began to fade away while a new generation of
Southern politicians became Republicans. True, Strom Thurmond switched
to GOP, but most of the old timers (Fulbright, Gore, Wallace, Byrd etc
etc) retired as Dems.

Why did a new generation white Southerners join the GOP? Not because
they thought Republicans were racists who would return the South to
segregation, but because the GOP was a “local government, small
government” party in the old Jeffersonian tradition. Southerners wanted
less government and the GOP was their natural home.

Jimmy Carter, a Civil Rights Democrat, briefly returned some states
to the Democrat fold, but in 1980, Goldwater’s heir, Ronald Reagan,
sealed this deal for the GOP. The new “Solid South” was solid GOP.

BUT, and we must stress this: the new southern Republicans were
*integrationist* Republicans who accepted the Civil Rights revolution
and full integration while retaining their love of Jeffersonian limited
government principles.

And what did Malcolm X say about the “Dixiecrats”…?

Next time, try actually looking something up, instead of blatantly spewing lies and expecting people to believe you.

REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS DID NOT SWITCH SIDES ON RACISM By Frances Rice

As a result of unrelenting efforts by Democrats to shift their racist past onto the backs of Republicans, using the mantra: “the parties switched sides”, a lot of people have requested an article addressing this issue.

It does not make sense to believe that racist Democrats suddenly rushed into the Republican Party, especially after Republicans spent nearly 150 years fighting for black civil rights. In fact, the racist Democrats declared they would rather vote for a “yellow dog” than a Republican because the Republican Party was known as the party for blacks.

From the time of its inception in 1854 as the anti-slavery party, the Republican Party has always been the party of freedom and equality for blacks. As author Michael Scheuer wrote, the Democratic Party is the party of the four S’s: slavery, secession, segregation and now socialism. Democrats have been running black communities for the past 50+ years, and the socialist policies of the Democrats have turned those communities into economic and social wastelands.

An alarming view of what America will be like in a few years due to unbridled socialism being pushed by President Barack Obama and his Democratic Party cohorts, is contained in the article: “Detroit: The Moral of the Story” by Kevin D. Williamson that is posted on the Internet.

Democrats first used brutality and discriminatory laws to stop blacks from voting for Republicans. Democrats now use deception and government handouts to keep blacks from voting for Republicans. In his book, “Dreams From My Father,” Obama described what he and other Democrats do to poor blacks as “plantation politics.”

The racist Democrats of the 1950’s and 1960’s that Republicans were fighting died Democrats. One racist Democrat who survived until 2010 was US Senator Robert Byrd, a former recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan. Notably, the Ku Klux Klan was started by Democrats in 1866 and became the terrorist arm of the Democratic Party for the purpose of terrorizing and lynching Republicans—black and white. Byrd became a prominent leader in the Democrat-controlled Congress where he was honored by his fellow Democrats as the “conscience of the Senate.”

Byrd was a fierce opponent of desegregating the military and complained in one letter: “I would rather die a thousand times and see old glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again than see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen of the wilds.”

Democrats denounced US Senator Trent Lott for his remarks about US Senator Strom Thurmond. However, there was silence when Democrat US Senator Christopher Dodd praised Byrd as someone who would have been “a great senator for any moment.” Thurmond was never in the Ku Klux Klan and, after he became a Republican, Thurmond defended blacks against lynching and the discriminatory poll taxes imposed on blacks by Democrats. While turning a blind eye to how the Democratic Party embraced Byrd until his death, Democrats regularly lambaste the Republican Party about David Duke, a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

Ignored are the facts that the Republican Party never embraced Duke and when he ran for the Republican Party presidential nomination in 1992, Republican Party officials tried to block his participation. Hypocritical is the word for how Democrats also ignore Duke’s long participation in the Democratic Party with no efforts by Democrats to block him. Below is Duke’s political history in Louisiana, which has an open primary system.

Duke ran for Louisiana State Senator as a Democrat in 1975. He ran again for the Louisiana State Senate in 1979 as a Democrat. In 1988, he made a bid for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. Then, on election day in 1988, he had himself listed on the presidential ballot as an “Independent Populist.” After his unbroken string of losses as a Democrat and an Independent Populist, Duke decided to describe himself as a Republican, then ran the following races where he lost every time: in 1989 he ran for Louisiana State Representative; in 1990, he ran for US Senator; in 1991 he ran for Governor of Louisiana; in 1992 he ran for president; in 1996 he ran for US Senator; and in 1999 he ran for US Representative.

Contrary to popular belief, President Lyndon Johnson did not predict a racist exodus to the Republican Party from the Democratic Party because of Johnson’s support of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Omitted from the Democrats’ rewritten history is what Johnson actually meant by his prediction.

Johnson feared that the racist Democrats would again form a third party, such as the short-lived States Rights Democratic Party. In fact, Alabama’s Democrat Governor George C. Wallace in 1968 started the American Independent Party that attracted other racist candidates, including Democrat Governor Lester Maddox.

Behind closed doors, Johnson said: “These Negroes, they’re getting uppity these days. That’s a problem for us, since they got something now they never had before. The political pull to back up their upityness. Now, we’ve got to do something about this. We’ve got to give them a little something. Just enough to quiet them down, but not enough to make a difference. If we don’t move at all, their allies will line up against us. And there’ll be no way to stop them. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”

Little known by many today is the fact that it was Republican Senator Everett Dirksen from Illinois, not Johnson, who pushed through the 1964 Civil Rights Act. In fact, Dirksen was instrumental to the passage of civil rights legislation in 1957, 1960, 1964, 1965 and 1968. Dirksen wrote the language for the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Dirksen also crafted the language for the Civil Rights Act of 1968 which prohibited discrimination in housing.

Democrats condemn Republican President Richard Nixon for his so-called “Southern Strategy.” These same Democrats expressed no concern when the racially segregated South voted solidly for Democrats for over 100 years, while deriding Republicans because of the thirty-year odyssey of the South switching to the Republican Party.

The “Southern Strategy” that began in the 1970’s was an effort by Nixon to get fair-minded people in the South to stop voting for Democrats who did not share their values and were discriminating against blacks. Georgia did not switch until 2004, and Louisiana was controlled by Democrats until the election of Republican Bobby Jindal, a person of color, as governor in 2007.

As the co-architect of Nixon’s “Southern Strategy”, Pat Buchanan provided a first-hand account of the origin and intent of that strategy in a 2002 article posted on the Internet. Buchanan wrote that Nixon declared that the Republican Party would be built on a foundation of states’ rights, human rights, small government and a strong national defense. Nixon said he would leave it to the Democratic Party to squeeze the last ounce of political juice out of the rotting fruit of racial injustice.

The Claremont Institute published an eye-opening article by Gerard Alexander entitled “The Myth of the Racist Republicans”, an analysis of the decades-long shift of the South from the racist Democratic Party to the racially tolerant Republican Party. That article can be found on the Internet.

Another article on this subject by Mr. Alexander is entitled “Conservatism does not equal racism. So why do many liberals assume it does?” and is posted on the Internet.

More details about the history of civil rights can be found in the NBRA Civil Rights Newsletter that can be found on the Internet.
An excellent video about civil rights history entitled “A pebble in Your Shoe: Why I am a Republican” by Dr. James Taylor is posted on YouTube.

KKK Terrorist Arm of the Democratic Party
By Frances Rice

History shows that the Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist arm of the
Democrat Party. This ugly fact about the Democrat Party is detailed in
the book, A Short History of Reconstruction, (Harper & Row
Publishers, Inc., 1990) by Dr. Eric Foner, the renown liberal historian
who is the DeWitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia University.
As a further testament to his impeccable credentials, Professor Foner is
only the second person to serve as president of the three major
professional organizations: the Organization of American Historians,
American Historical Association, and Society of American Historians.
Democrats in the last century did not hide their connections to the Ku
Klux Klan. Georgia-born Democrat Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Grand Dragon
of the Ku Klux Klan wrote on page 21 of the September 1928 edition of
the Klan’s “The Kourier Magazine”: “I have never voted for any man who
was not a regular Democrat. My father … never voted for any man who was
not a Democrat. My grandfather was …the head of the Ku Klux Klan in
reconstruction days…. My great-grandfather was a life-long Democrat….
My great-great-grandfather was…one of the founders of the Democratic
party.”

Dr. Foner in his book explores the history of the origins of Ku Klux
Klan and provides a chilling account of the atrocities committed by
Democrats against Republicans, black and white.

On page 146 of his book, Professor Foner wrote: “Founded in 1866 as a
Tennessee social club, the Ku Klux Klan spread into nearly every
Southern state, launching a ‘reign of terror‘ against Republican leaders
black and white.” Page 184 of his book contains the definitive
statements: “In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the
interests of the Democratic party, the planter class, and all those who
desired the restoration of white supremacy. It aimed to destroy the
Republican party’s infrastructure, undermine the Reconstruction state,
reestablish control of the black labor force, and restore racial
subordination in every aspect of Southern life.”

Heartbreaking are Professor Foner’s recitations of the horrific acts of
terror inflicted by Democrats on black and white Republicans. Recounted
on pages 184-185 of his book is one such act of terror: “Jack Dupree, a
victim of a particularly brutal murder in Monroe County, Mississippi -
assailants cut his throat and disemboweled him, all within sight of his
wife, who had just given birth to twins - was ‘president of a republican
club‘ and known as a man who ‘would speak his mind.’”

“White gangs roamed New Orleans, intimidating blacks and breaking up
Republican meetings,“ wrote Dr. Foner on page 146 of his book. On page
186, he wrote: “An even more extensive ‘reign of terror’ engulfed
Jackson, a plantation county in Florida’s panhandle. ‘That is where
Satan has his seat,‘ remarked a black clergyman; all told over 150
persons were killed, among them black leaders and Jewish merchant Samuel
Fleischman, resented for his Republican views and for dealing fairly
with black customers.“

Care to try again? I will be waiting for your response of hyperbole and rhetoric with no facts. I also doubt you lack the balls to post this info on your own wall, lest you look more like a fool. The golden part is, the notes will show my response and the TRUTH will once again be out there. This is what you call: game, set, match. Buh-bye!!

David J. Stewart #fundie godlovespeople.com

I love to play the steel guitar. I already know that God has some beautiful steel guitars waiting for me. I told the Lord to surprise me. I never tell the Lord what I want, because I trust that He knows my heart infinitely better than I ever could, and can do a much better job of picking things for me than I can for myself. He said all things will be given to us in Romans 8:32. Jesus was a carpenter and can build anything handmade. I think it is amazing and more than a coincidence that the Creator of this universe worked on earth for 30 years as a carpenter! Amen! The Lord said to Peter in John 14:1-3 that He was going to prepare a place for him (and every believer), that we may be together forever in “My Father's house.”

I know that God is going to enable me to play music the way I have always wanted to (few artists like their work). God is going to give me an orchestra to play along with, and the best sound equipment. We likely won't even need sound equipment, but I hope so. I love the old tube technology. I love old things and aged wood. I don't play my guitar anywhere near as much as I'd like to down here on earth—in part because of my adverse health with my neck, and also because I sacrifice most of my time to maintain and work on my websites (and I am honored and grateful for the unique opportunity and privileged to do so).

I have given up my life for the Lord's work. Matthew 10:42 and 16:25, “And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward. ... For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.” God is going to reward me for every keystroke on my computer's keyboard, every night I've worked through until the next day, and for working hard even though it caused more pain in my neck sitting for long hours typing. Jesus PROMISED to reward all of our labors for Him.

[Taylor] Swift obviously dresses in this fashion to sell heathen self-love and to ruin God's plan for the world, because her kind are all for secular humanism. The Word is God's revelation to humanity, and as such is not worldly like the attire that Swift is ruining America's moral foundation with. There is a glorious time in America's history where such attire would have been against the law, but it is not. Alas, this great corruption is akin to the corruption that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed over. I weep for America's future, and I will not tolerate being libeled as a fan for the seductress who wants to see the demise of America. --Elvis is King (talk) 16:38, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Again with these blasphemous assertions? You may insist on denying the sins you commit, but God sees through your lies. Repent and perhaps the Lord Almighty will show you mercy. 141.134.75.236 (talk) 01:22, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
I do not commit sins. I am right with God, and I spend considrable time studying His Word, and excising liberal vulgar heathen abominations. --Elvis is King (talk) 02:30, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
Such arrogance. Have you forgotten that pride is sin and humility is virtue? You lie, you blaspheme and you commit the sin of hubris, and then you lie once more to deny all your sins! Such shamelessness! By God, sinner, repent! Do you truly wish to invoke the Lord Almighty's wrath upon your person? 141.134.75.236 (talk) 02:54, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
You do not realize that I am more principled and conservative than you could ever hope to be, and I revere and am right with the Lord. I do not engage in liberal sins like all of these atheist nerds who don't care about anything. --Elvis is King (talk) 03:09, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
So you persist in your denial and your arrogance? Truly, is there any way to make you see the error in your ways? May the Lord guide you back to the flock, for verily, you are a lost lamb that has wandered greatly from the sacred path. 141.134.75.236 (talk) 03:17, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

The Confederate Council #fundie csagov.org

This is the official web page of the Confederate States of America. Official statutes and journals of Congress of 1861-1865 are contained herein and are, for the most part, still binding upon the Confederate States of America as is the ratified C.S.A. Constitution of 1861.

The national Government of the Confederate States of America does not, at this time, have any salaried personnel, but does pay some reimbursement of expenses of contractors for work contracted for by the government. It is important to note that the national Government is not structured to legally have control of the State C.S.A. Governments, but rather for them to function with the national Government and each other in accordance with the national C.S.A. Constitution and their own State Confederate Constitutions according to the dictates of the Citizens therein.

The Government of the Confederate States of America is not a political party nor a club but a government and thus does not endorse any political party or candidate nor club or other organization. Nevertheless, the Government does appreciate positive support by such other organizations and/or political parties and the C.S.A. Registered Citizens will elect candidates to hold the various offices of the various Confederate Governments.

The Government of the Confederate States of America never officially surrendered to the Federal Union and thus still exists as an occupied government under the control of the Federal Union (UNITED STATES, INC.) in the Southern States of America including: Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, No. Carolina, So. Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia and within the Territory of Arizona and the provisional Territories including Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, Maryland, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Wyoming.

C.S.A. Registered Citizens live in these various states and are eligible to vote in Confederate elections. Non-voting C.S.A. Registered Citizens also live in a number of Northern and Western states which are not considered part of the territory claimed by the Confederacy and thus may not vote in Confederate elections unless they move to a Confederate State or Territory.

Most C.S.A. Registered Citizens are also U. S. Citizens by virtue of the 14th Amendment of the U. S. Constitution, which is not necessarily recognized by the Confederate States of America, but yet applies due to the occupation and thus such C.S.A. Registered Citizens may individually vote in U. S. and U. S. Satellite State elections.

So long as a peace treaty between the Confederate States of America and the Federal Union (United States of America) recognized by the UNITED STATES, INC. has not been signed and thus occupation and reconstruction still apply, the governments of the Confederate States and the Citizens thereof are obliged to obey the laws of the occupying nation.

No new treaty between the Confederate States of America and any foreign government other than the occupying nation (Federal Union or the United States of America) may legally be concluded, but the subjects of the occupation living in the South, whether or not they are C.S.A. Registered Citizens, may avail themselves legally to the laws and supposed rights and protections of the U. S. Constitution.

Meanwhile and prior to a negotiated peace treaty and termination of occupation, the C.S.A. Registered Citizens are admonished to avoid any form of military hostility against the Federal Union or the satellite states thereof. We pray that the Lord will bless His people if we are worthy and that He will shield the innocent from harm as in the Lord’s prayer.

In the Service of Almighty God,
The Confederate Council

I obtained the book Zhuan Falun in 1998 and was told that it could help heal my illnesses and keep me fit. However, I remained skeptical because I didn't believe anything like this was possible. So the book stayed on my shelf, untouched for half a year. Little did I know it was a hidden treasure. When I opened the book one day to have a look, there were many seemingly magical cultivation stories inside. This aroused my curiosity, and I ended up at the home of a Falun Dafa practitioner to listen to a recording of Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, teaching the Fa. From that day on, I began cultivating in Falun Dafa, and strictly adhered to Dafa's core principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.

Miracles then began to happen. I had several health problems before I started practicing, such as lower back pain, headaches, and a chronic illness that caused me severe stomach pains, often preventing me from walking. I also had rheumatoid arthritis. My hands would swell up every morning, to the extent that I couldn't bend my fingers. I visited many doctors, but none were able to help.

After watching videos of Master teaching the Fa one day, I decided to do the second exercise. I felt a warm current flow through my stomach and exit my body. A few days later the unsettling lumps in my stomach disappeared, and the illness has never returned. My rheumatoid arthritis also gradually disappeared. While I was diligently studying the Fa and doing the exercises, Master was purifying my body. Nowadays, I can feel the happiness and sense of wonder that can only come from being in an illness-free state.

My husband was helping his friend run an errand at work and slipped. One of his legs was submerged in boiling water. He sustained severe burns, and doctors said that the leg had to be amputated. The doctor told us that he would need to be hospitalized for several months, however, my husband insisted on leaving the hospital since he didn't want the accident to affect his job.

Upon returning home, I suggested that he listen to the recordings of Master's Fa. Within three days, his pain subsided, and he began to sleep much better. This burn also began to heal rapidly. In a dramatic turn of events, on the fourth day, my husband stopped listening to the Fa. He said that he didn't believe in Dafa anymore and made disrespectful remarks directed at Master. The very next day, my husband's excruciating pain returned. The burned area became inflamed again and he returned to the hospital to seek treatment.

His wounds continued to worsen. He was consistently unable to sleep and work, and worried that he would have to have his leg amputated. I knew that all of this was caused by his personal choice to disrespect Dafa, since Master was no longer able to help him under such circumstances. My husband eventually realized that he had done a disservice to Dafa and sincerely apologized to Master. He listened to five lectures of Master's Fa teaching in one go.

The pain in his leg pain vanished immediately, and his leg soon recovered completely. My husband is infinitely grateful to Master. Since that time, he has always said that Falun Dafa is good and shares his experience with others. I sincerely thank Master from the bottom of my heart!

Falun Dafa has benefited many people in our community. Here are but four brief examples:

My husband had a heart attack, leaving him unconscious one morning in December 1996. The doctor said he had many illnesses, the most serious being cerebrovascular insufficiency (a condition that results in obstruction of one or more arteries that supply blood to the brain). The doctor told my husband his life was in danger and suggested that he quit working and stay home to rest.

I had a friend who practiced Falun Dafa. She came to visit my husband and brought the book Zhuan Falun. It is the main book in the practice of Falun Dafa. She told him, “Dafa can save you. Follow the teachings and do the exercises, and you can regain your health.” My husband read the book and learned the exercises. His health improved, and within a couple of months, he was able to walk to the stores, tend the farmland, and herd the sheep.

He biked to the wheat field during the summer harvest season in 1998. As he crossed the intersection, a tractor knocked him to the ground and one of its wheels rolled over his ankle. The driver of the tractor offered to take my husband to the hospital. My husband moved his ankle and said, “I'm okay, my skin is just scratched.” Bystanders were amazed and happy for my husband. After seeing Falun Dafa's incredible effect on my husband, many people in my village who suffered from illnesses came to learn the practice.

My son fell off the roof of our house after having had a few drinks in the spring of 2013. I was in the house when I heard him fall. I found him unconscious. I held him while I repeated “Falun Dafa is good!” My son woke up soon afterward. He recuperated over the next 20 days and was able to do some chores. Less than two months later he found part-time work harvesting wheat. He is not a practitioner, but wonderful things do happen when one believes that Falun Dafa is good!

My sister was working inside a shed with five other women in 2013. They were counting tomatoes while people outside were burning corn stalks. A strong wind came and spread the flames to the curtain hanging at the shed window. The shed quickly filled with fire and smoke. The women could not find the exit and were having trouble breathing. My sister remembered what I told her to say whenever she was in trouble. She told everyone to yell, “Falun Dafa is good!” A puff of wind cleared a path so that they could see the door. They ran out of the shed, it collapsed and burned to the ground. Many in the neighborhood believe that it was Falun Dafa had saved the lives of those women.

A 70-year-old lady in my village could not walk because of the pain in her legs. She began to practice Falun Dafa in 1998, hoping to be healed. The pain was gone a few months later. She quit the practice when the persecution began. An abscess appeared on her leg. She went to a doctor to have it removed. The abscess kept returning and the sore festered and turned black.

The doctor said she had inflammation within blood vessels and advised her to have the leg amputated. A Falun Dafa practitioner suggested she return to Falun Dafa practice. The woman agreed. She resumed the practice, and stopped taking medication and seeking other treatments. Her husband was upset with her. He scolded and beat her for not seeking medical treatment. However he told her, “If you get well from the practice, I will practice too.”

The woman is in perfect health now, and her husband has begun to read Zhuan Falun. Her family is grateful to Dafa and Master Li (the founder and teacher of Falun Dafa).

(This guy is an Indian immigrant)

Like so many children, I grew up becoming thoroughly acquainted with Western fairytales that were packaged by Disney and transmitted through my TV set. The charater that facinated me most was seldom the protagonist or antagonist, but rather, the king or monarch figure. He was powerful, and as a child, I struggled to determine the source of his power. I intuitively understood that his power was derived from the control he exerted on the bodies of other individuals but one question remained: Why did people obey the king? What would happen if every subject in the kingdom was siezed with a sudden fit of disobedience? What would be the difference between the king and his other subjects then?

We on the alternative/Paleocon right realize (like Sam Francis did) that our elites are no longer interested in preserving the institutions and traditional European heritage of North America. We realize that the system is our enemy and one that wields the coercive power of a thousand kings of old combined. How are we to resist such a foe? As Bay Area Guy reminds me, military secession is out of the question. It failed for the confederacy and it will most certainly fail today. Reforming the system from within is also out of the question. What are our alternatives? I would suggest that passively resisting the system without enabling it is possibly the only viable means of defense. How can this be done? Let’s examine a few ways.

Boycott the mass media: Throw out your TV

The ubiquitous TV set pumps the sludge of Cultural Marxism and feminist rot right into the livingrooms of families across North America. The values that we encounter in mass entertainment are not our values, they are the degenerate values of our elites. By throwing out our TV sets we deprive our elites of ad revenue and hit them where it hurts, in their wallets.

Many a white nationalist has whined about Hollywood degeneracy yet surprisingly few have called for an all out boycott. We are not yet living in 1984 where telescreens that cannot be turned off are inserted into every home. We have the freedom to economically hurt our elites and it will not cost us a dime. On the contrary, it will end up saving us money and freeing up our time to pursue wholesome activities. Consider this article written by Aaron Clarey for Return of Kings that called for the boycott of the latest Mad Max film. This article was picked up by numerous mainstream media outlets and relentlessly bashed. ROK has published a plethora of offensive articles in the past, but why did this one in particular draw out the ire of the left? Because economic boycotts work. The Catholics waged economic warfare against the Jewish Warner Brothers and forced the latter to drop the vulgarity level in their pictures. They worked in the 1930s and they can certainly work in 2015 and beyond. The mere thought of organized economic resistance today terrifies our elites, and it was this terror that manifested itself in the avalanche of scorn and ridicule heaped on Clarey’s article.

Our elites cannot hold a gun to our collective heads and force us to consume the rot they manufacture for our cultural demise. We are still in a position to walk away and we should.

Stay out of debt

Nothing chains us to the system like debt and everybody should endeavour to steer clear of it. The system is rigged to keep us irrevocably chained, but there are ways to work around it. The surest method to accomplish this is good old fashioned self discipline. Live within your means and minimize the usage of your credit cards. Try and maintain a solvency ratio of 3:1. This means that for every dollar of debt you owe, you have 3 dollars of your own personal wealth to tackle it. I’ve maintained this ratio for years and I see no reason why others can’t either. If the powers that be should decide to come after you, debt will be their primary means of attack. Debt also has a way of destroying your wealth without you even realizing it. Ask yourself this question: Who is wealthier – the middle income executive who has total assets worth $10k but liabilities totaling $50k, or the homeless person with $5 in his pocket and $0 debt?

Boycott universities

I have pointed out before that Western universities are the hotbeds of Cultural Marxism. The Marxist worldview is the default worldview of leftist educators and you can be sure that they will do everything in their power to warp the minds of your children. There are several good reasons to avoid universities.

Most University majors (Humanities/Social Sciences) are worthless and fail to inculcate any marketable skills into their impressionable graduates. Technical skills are what ensure employment and thus accountants, doctors, and programmers are far more likely to be employed right after graduation than the Women’s Studies or History major.
Universities are a debt trap, enough said.
Universities waste your time and money by forcing you to pick pointless electives. If you desire a set of technical skills, then a technical institute/college may serve your needs better while requiring only half the time investment a university would require to attain your qualification.
In summary, we might never be able to beat the system or reform it from within, but we can encumber it and thereby diminish its power over us. The beauty of this approach is that it doesn’t cost us a dime! Staying out of debt, boycotting mass entertainment and Universities will economically hurt our traitorous elites while actually keeping our hard earned cash where it belongs, with us. The king commands us to consume, will we blindly obey?

It is improbable that the framers of the Constitution anticipated a situation in which the press were entirely given over to seditious, anti-American policies. If they had, it is likely that their modus operandi would be similar to that for any faction found guilty of high crimes. Trials for treason and the requisite sentences would apply, and I would have no qualms about seeing such sentences executed, no matter how severe.
...
Those whose speech and actions impinge upon the God-given rights set forth in the Declaration of Independence and codified in the Constitution are, by definition, excepted from protection under the First Amendment (as well as the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment). This is a very important concept to consider, because it is based on these presumptions of protected speech and equal protection for all that progressives and socialists have engaged in their predation upon our liberties.

If these truths can be acknowledged and widely accepted as such (as opposed to progressives’ Orwellian interpretations), then the political disenfranchisement of liberals, progressives, socialists and Marxists can begin in earnest, and in the open.

Who, REALLY, is this man we affectionately call Santa Claus?

What do we REALLY know about Santa?

Is Santa just a jolly ol’, harmless, friendly fellow?

Or is there something or someone else hiding behind jolly ol’ St. Nick?

Before we look at Santa, let’s begin with some basic Bible facts:

The Bible clearly teaches a powerful, rebellious, subtle, evil being called the Devil, Lucifer or Satan.
Revelation 12:9
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
The Bible teaches Satan rebelled against God. And Satan’s reason for rebellion is to be God. Satan’s goal is to de-throne God and persuade mankind to rebel against God.
Isaiah 14:12-14
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
The Bible clearly teaches Satan’s primary attack is the most vulnerable. In Luke 10:19, Jesus Christ compares Satan to lightning, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven". Lightning, like Satan, always travels the path of least resistance. The Bible also likens the devil to a "roaring lion" The lion is a "predator of opportunity". The lion looks for the injured, the youngest, the smallest, or the weakest – the one with the least ability to run or fight. So it is with Satan. He’s "seeking" those "whom he may devour".
1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
The great German Reformer, Martin Luther writes in his Table Talks:

"The devil plagues and torments us in the place where we are most tender and weak. In Paradise, he fell not upon Adam, but upon Eve."
(The Table Talk of Martin Luther, #424)
The most vulnerable and least resistance are our children. It’s no accident that the Lord Jesus Christ distinctively warns several times against harming or offending these "little ones".

Matthew 18:1-6
1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
The Lord Jesus invites, and encourages little children to come unto him. The younger years are by far the most spiritually fruitful in the life-cycle of an individual.

Mark 10:13-15
13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
Luke 18:15-17
15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.
16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

Without question the most fertile time in the average persons’ life for receiving and trusting the Lord Jesus is the pre-teen years. Any church bus worker or youth worker knows young children are very receptive to the gospel of Jesus Christ. For them that "child like" faith is natural. It’s what the Lord Jesus described in Matthew 10:15. As we get older; the sensual, youthful lusts and logical, carnal mind begin to dominate our minds. And as that happens, our heart becomes hardened and seared to the spiritual things of God.

Barna Research Group published a survey conducted among teenagers titled Third Millennium Teens. Under the subtitle "Displacing the Myths", the report said:

"The Myth: the teen years are evangelistically productive.
The Reality: if they're not saved by age 13, they probably never will be.
The report goes on to say, "The data shows clearly that the prime evangelistic years are those before a person becomes a teenager." (George Barna, Third Millennium Teens, p. 65)

If the most productive time of salvation are the pre-teen years, and if the pre-teen years are the most vulnerable – does it not stand to reason that Satan would fiercely attack this time? Can we not see the overwhelming evidence of this Satanic attack on our children? From the sexual, sensual music of Brittney Spears, or Nsync, to the occult and witchcraft of Harry Potter – there is an attack aimed directly at our children. It’s blasting from the TV, the music, the Internet, the peer pressure, the public schools – Satan’s attack literally "seeks" to "devour them" into every "nook and cranny".

Many parents have been "lullabied to sleep" with the deception that our children are innocently immune to the attack of Satan. There’s a false security that believes our children will naturally "grow out of it" or "they’re just sowing their wild oats" or maybe "they’re just being kids". But the Bible tells a different story. In Mark chapter 9, God details a frightening occurrence. A man brings his "spirit possessed" son to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mark 9:17-29
17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.
19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.
21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.
22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
It’s interesting the apostles could not cast out this "kind" (vs 29). Jesus said, "This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting." What kind of possession was it? Is that why the Lord Jesus asked the man "How long is it ago since this came unto him?" And the man answered, "Of a child". Possibly, these "hard to cast out" kind are those that enter in a child. Is it because the "possession" reaches so deep and so strong that they’re almost impossible to remove?

In Proverbs 22:6, the Bible explains the lifelong fruits of training a young child in the way he should go. That early training is so strong and so deep – as that child grows and matures – they will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
But. . . The flip side is: if that same child is trained by the ways of Satan and the world, chances are that child will "not depart from it." George Harrison, a devout follower of the Hindu god, Krishna, understood this life-long influence, Harrison told Rolling Stone Magazine:

"The main thing is to get the kids. . . nail you when you’re young and brainwash you, then they’ve got you for the rest of your life."
George Harrison, Beatles, (Loose Talk, Rolling Stone Magazine, p. 70)
It has been stated the foundation of a child is shaped by the time that child is five-years-old, maybe sooner. Without question, the early pre-teen or "Santa Claus" years are some of the most important in a person's life-long development. It has been truthfully said, "The hand that rocks the cradle controls the world."

That brings us to Santa. . .

Where does Santa Claus fit in the life of a young child? What about the teaching of Santa Claus in the psyche of a child? Is there more to jolly old St. Nick than meets the eye? Is Santa a clever, seemingly harmless, subtle (see Genesis 3:1) attempt to question the truthfulness of God? Is Santa the handiwork of Satan?

May I remind you of the "harmless" question, the subtle serpent, asks Eve in the garden? "Yea, hath God said,. . .?" So slight. . . So simple. . . And yet so deadly. . .

Not only that. . . Satan’s attack is not necessarily evil, or bad. In fact, it can be good, or even pleasant. The subtle temptation of Genesis reveals Satan’s clever "good and pleasant" message.

Genesis 3:6
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
As Eve saw the forbidden fruit, it was "good" and it was "pleasant" – and yet it was deadly.

The Devil is a "master of disguise". He can take that which looks good and pleasant, and seemingly so innocent – and make it so deadly. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 11:14, "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light" He doesn’t appear with horns and a pitch fork breathing fire. He might just appear as a pleasant, friendly, fellow, with "a broad face and a round little belly, That shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly. . ."

I believe, and will prove, Santa Claus is a subtle, deadly attack on our children to confuse, doubt and rob their God-ordained "child like" faith. Satan knows, if he can somehow get that child through those fruitful early years without trusting the Lord Jesus Christ – his goal of eternal damnation in hell increases substantially.

A Letter From Hell

Dear Mom,

I am writing to you from the most horrible place that I have ever seen, and more horrible than you could ever imagine. It is BLACK here, so DARK that I cannot even see all the souls I am constantly bumping into. I only know they are people like myself from the blood curdling SCREAMS. My voice is gone from my own screaming as I writhe in pain and suffering. I cannot even cry for help anymore, and it is no use anyway, there is no one here that has any compassion at all for my plight.

The PAIN and suffering in this place is absolutely unbearable. It so consumes my every thought, I could not know if there were any other sensation to come upon me. The pain is so severe, it never stops day or night. The turning of days does not appear because of the darkness. What may be nothing more than minutes or even seconds seems like many endless years. The thought of this suffering continuing without end is more than I can bear. My mind is spinning more and more with each passing moment. I feel like a madman, I cannot even think clearly under this load of confusion. I fear I am losing my mind.

The FEAR is just as bad as the pain, maybe even worse. I don’t see how my predicament could be any worse than this, but I am in constant fear that it MIGHT be at any moment. My mouth is parched, and will only become more so. It is so dry that my tongue cleaves to the roof of my mouth. I recall that old preacher saying that’s what Jesus Christ endured as he hung on that old rugged cross. There is no relief, not so much as a single drop of water to cool my swollen tongue.

To add even more misery to this place of torment,
I know that I deserve to be here. I am being punished justly for my deeds. The punishment, the pain, the suffering is no worse than I justly deserve, but admitting that now will never ease the anguish that burns eternally in my wretched soul. I hate myself for committing the sins to earn such a horrible fate,

I hate the devil that deceived me so that I would end up in this place. And as much as I know it is an unspeakable wickedness to think such a thing, I hate the very God that sent his only begotten Son to spare me this torment. I can never blame the Christ that suffered and bled and died for me, but I hate him anyway. I cannot even control my feelings that I know to be wicked, wretched and vile. I am more wicked and vile now than I ever was in my earthly existence. Oh, If only I had listened.

Any earthly torment would be far better than this. To die a slow agonizing death from Cancer; To die in a burning building as the victims of the 9-11 terror attacks. Even to be nailed to a cross after being beaten unmercifully like the Son of God; But to choose these over my present state I have no power. I do not have that choice.

I now understand that this torment and suffering
is what Jesus Bore for me. I believe that he suffered, bled and died to pay for my sins, but his suffering was not eternal. After three days he arose in victory over the grave. Oh, I do SO believe, but alas, it is too late. As the old invitation song says that I remember hearing so many times, I am “One Day Too Late”.

We are ALL believers in this terrible place, but our faith amounts to NOTHING. It is too late. The door is shut. The tree has fallen, and here shall it lay. In HELL. Forever lost. No Hope, No Comfort, No Peace, No Joy. There will never be any end to my suffering.

I remember that old preacher as he would read “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: And they have no rest day nor night” And that is perhaps the worst thing about this terrible place.

I REMEMBER.

I remember the church services. I remember the invitations. I always thought they were so corny, so stupid, so useless. It seemed I was too “tough” for such things. I see it all different now, Mom, but my change of heart matters nothing at this point. I have lived like a fool, I pretended like a fool, I died like a fool, and now I must suffer the torments and anguish of a fool.

Oh, Mom, how I miss so very much the comforts of home. Never again will I know your tender caress across my fevered brow. No more warm breakfasts or home-cooked meals. Never again will I feel the warmth of the fireplace on a frosty winter’s night. Now the fire engulfs not only this perishing body wracked with pain beyond compare, but the fire of the wrath of an Almighty God consumes my very inner being with an anguish that cannot be properly described in any mortal language.

I long to just stroll through a lush green meadow in the springtime and view the beautiful flowers, stopping to take in the fragrance of their sweet perfume. Instead I am resigned to the burning smell of brimstone, sulphur, and a heat so intense that all other senses simply fail me.

Oh, Mom, as a teenager I always hated having to listen to the fussing and whining of the little babies in church, and even at our house. I thought they were such an inconvenience to me, such an irritation. How I long just to see for a brief moment one of those innocent little faces. But there are no babies in Hell, Mom.

There are no Bibles in Hell, dearest mother. The only scriptures inside the charred walls of the damned are those that ring in my ears hour after hour, moment after miserable moment. They offer no comfort at all, though, and only serve to remind me of what a fool I have been.

Were it not for the futility of them Mom, you might otherwise rejoice to know that there is a never ending prayer meeting here in Hell. No matter, there is no Holy Spirit to intercede on our behalf. The prayers are so empty, so dead. They amount to nothing more than cries for mercy that we all know will never be answered.

Please warn my brothers Mom. I was the eldest, and thought I had to be “cool”. Please tell them that no one in Hell is cool. Please warn all my friends, even my enemies, lest they come also to this place of torment.

As terrible as this place is, Mom, I see that it is not my final destination. As Satan laughs at all of us here, and as multitudes join us continually in this feast of misery, we are constantly reminded that some day in the future, we will all be summoned individually to appear before The Judgment Throne of Almighty God. God will show us our eternal fate written in the books next to all of our wicked works.

We will have no defense, no excuse, and nothing to say except to confess the justice of our damnation before the supreme judge of all the earth. Just before being cast into our final destination of torment, the Lake of Fire, we will have to look upon the face of him who willingly suffered the torments of hell that we might be delivered from them. As we stand there in his holy presence to hear the pronouncement of our damnation, you will be there Mom to see it all. Please forgive me for hanging my head in shame, as I know I will not be able to bear to look upon your face. You will already be conformed into the image of the Saviour, and I know it will be more than I can stand.

I would love to leave this place and join you and so many others I have known for my few short years on earth.
But I know that will never be possible.Since I know I can never escape the torments of the damned, I say with tears, with a sorrow and deep despair that can never be completely described, I never want to see any of you again.

Please don’t ever join me here.

In eternal Anguish,

Your Son / Daughter,

Condemned and Lost Forever

Sen. Jenifer Branning #fundie rawstory.com

The state legislature in Mississippi has now passed a bill to allow both public employees and private businesses to refuse to take part in gay marriages — but a whole lot of heterosexual people might be surprised at what’s in the written text here.

The bill repeatedly states that “the state government shall not take any discriminatory action” against a person or religious organization for refusing to take part in objectionable marriages, adoptions, or certain other services (more on that later).

The bill’s usage of the phrase “discriminatory action,” however, is more like what laws in most states would describe as an action under anti-discrimination laws, such as “Impose, levy, or assess a monetary fine, fee, penalty or injunction,” as well as other issues involving tax statuses, professional licenses, and state contracts.

But as this bill is actually written, though, a whole lot of people in Mississippi besides sexual minorities could face discrimination, too — like the vast numbers of people who have had sex outside of marriage.

Not to worry, though — they say they’re really just thinking about the gays.

As reported in the Jackson Clarion-Ledger: “Opponents of the bill say the bill could allow discrimination of those in the LGBT community and possibly single mothers, but [state Sen. Jenifer Branning, the lead Senate sponsor] said the bill deals only with same-sex marriage.”

In addition to social services such as marriage and adoption, the bill protects any private business who refuses to provide “services, accommodations, facilities, goods, or privileges for a purpose related to the solemnization, formation, celebration, or recognition of any marriage, based upon or in a manner consistent with a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction described in Section 2 of this act.”

So what is Section 2, and what are its ramifications? The actual text of the bill states:

“SECTION 2. The sincerely held religious beliefs or moral convictions protected by this act are the belief or conviction that:
“(a) Marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman;
“(b) Sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage; and
“(c) Male (man) or female (woman) refer to an individual’s immutable biological sex as objectively determined by anatomy and genetics at time of birth.”

And from here, so much mischief could be done. Because while the bill specifies numerous social services provided by either state employees or private religious organizations — marriage and adoption, mainly — in all cases an employer or organization is broadly protected for having “a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction described in Section 2 of this act.”

As written, despite the sponsor’s statement that the bill deals only with same-sex marriage, a government employee could refuse to grant a marriage license to a couple who have had premarital sex — and who knows, they might even be able to ask the question, too.

So why include a section for people who believe that sex is reserved only for marriage? Most likely, that clause might have been intended to relate to other sections of the bill involving adoption and foster care services, as well as fertility services. But the key point here is that as written, any person could be refused a marriage from a government employee on any or all of the bases under Section 2.

And in other areas, when the bill here also specifies “psychological, counseling, or fertility services based upon a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction described in Section 2 of this act,” a therapist might even potentially refuse counseling to a person whose personal morality does not measure up to the standard set under Section 2.

Some people even think that this bill could even authorize that “a corporation could fire a woman for wearing pants.” But this author respectfully disagrees, based on the full legal context of the relevant language.

What the act actually says is:

“The state government shall not take any discriminatory action against a person wholly or partially on the basis that the person establishes sex-specific standards or policies concerning employee or student dress or grooming, or concerning access to restrooms, spas, baths, showers, dressing rooms, locker rooms, or other intimate facilities or settings, based upon or in a manner consistent with a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction described in Section 2 of this act.”

Since sex-specific dress codes at a business are discussed here in relation to Section 2, what this actually refers to is forbidding a transgender person from dressing according to their internal identity — not just any old matter of a woman wearing pants. (After all, a person’s mode of dress has nothing directly to do with marriage or sexuality — thus leaving gender identity as the only category left from the section.)

The law also forbids “discriminatory action” by the state against a person who “declines to participate in the provision of treatments, counseling, or surgeries related to sex reassignment or gender identity transitioning” — but on the bright side, a clause soon afterward says that this shall not be construed to allow the denial of emergency medical services for sickness or injury.

So a transgender person who gets a broken leg is still to be provided medical care — at least on paper.

[From "The Compatibility of Alt-Right Christianity"]

Connor Grubaugh of First Things has responded to my response to Matthew Rose’s article The Anti-Christian Alt-Right.

Admittedly, I found the narrative about the Alt-Right and Christianity that Matthew Rose spun amusing and unconvincing and responded by lampooning it. After all, I’m a Lutheran who reads Rod Dreher and First Things. I’ve never read Alain de Benoist or Julius Evola. I’ve read Oswald Spengler and Friedrich Nietzsche, but I don’t consider their ideas to be the source of my own worldview.

Matthew Rose has a preconceived narrative: the Alt-Right is anti-Christian. In order to further this narrative, he cites the Alt-Right’s leading atheists – Greg Johnson and Richard Spencer – and dives into the European roots of Identitarianism. Like any good Nietzschean, he traces the genealogy of the Alt-Right to Alain de Benoist and the European New Right and Julius Evola and Radical Traditionalism. This is how he reaches the shocking conclusion that the Alt-Right is pagan and fundamentally anti-Christian.

As I said in the previous article, the Alt-Right is united by the belief that “race exists, race matters and race is the foundation of identity.” This is why there are atheists, agnostics, pagans and Christians who identify and affiliate with the Alt-Right.

The movement has always been internally divided over religion. The people who join the Alt-Right subscribe to a broad range of religious perspectives, but all of us are equally stigmatized and dissent from the mainstream on this particular issue.

The truth is that the origin of my racial views … are American! I find the notion that the Alt-Right is incompatible with Christianity to be preposterous. It is on the same level as the argument made by Russell Moore that the cross and Confederate flag “cannot co-exist without one setting the other on fire.” In reality, the cross and the Confederate flag got along swimmingly well during the historical Confederacy and for generations thereafter. No one in the South at the time perceived any contradiction between the two. Southerners became more intensely Christian during and after the War Between the States. The argument was made that God had allowed the Confederacy to be bathed in blood, its cities destroyed, and its enemies triumphant in order to test and sanctify His favored people.

The Alt-Right’s credo that “race exists, race matters and race is the foundation of identity” was the conventional wisdom of the American South for centuries. This view was also the mainstream view in White America until the Second World War. If Christianity in “its original and most animating form is fundamentally incompatible with the Faustian ethic and race-based mythos of the alt-right,” then it follows that the United States which was founded and settled by Christians would have never existed in the first place.

Every American president from George Washington to Dwight Eisenhower was a racist. The Fourteenth Amendment had to be passed in order for blacks to become American citizens.

If the Alt-Right is fundamentally incompatible with Christianity, then how did we come to live in this multiracial society in the first place? The answer is that race realism and Christianity were not thought to be incompatible until modern times. In the past, Christians came up with all sorts of ingenious theological arguments to rationalize everything from race realism to slavery to white supremacy to colonialism. The Puritans had their errand in the wilderness as the New Israel. The Spanish conquest of the New World was blessed by the Papacy. Africans in the South were said to be afflicted by the Curse of Ham which doomed them to be the “servant of servants.” Growing up in the Jim Crow South, my father-in-law was taught that blacks were “the beasts of the field” found in the Old Testament.

According to the Ten Commandments, Christians are instructed not to covet our “neighbor’s wife, or his or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.” The Old Testament is full of genocides. Jesus Christ had nothing to say about racism and neither did Christendom until the 20th century. It was communists who came up with the notion that “racism” is a sin and it was the Soviet Union that started propagating that doctrine in the 1920s. The Southern Baptist Convention didn’t discover that racism was immoral until the 1990s – the last major institution in American society to come to this realization.

The vast majority of Southern Christians opposed the Civil Rights Movement and its hated crusade for “social equality” just as their denominations had split over abolition in the antebellum era.

If anything is true, my racial views are a bit milder than my Christian ancestors who once believed in slavery and polygenesis in the 19th century. Unlike my Christian ancestors, I don’t believe in the Curse of Ham or that blacks are the products of miscegenation with chimpanzees in West Africa. I don’t believe that blacks are the pre-Adamite “beasts of the field” like Southerners did in the Jim Crow South. I only bring this up to point out this was the mainstream view at the time and to show that race realism and Christianity were fundamentally compatible. The politically correct view that race realism and Christianity are “fundamentally incompatible” has been a minority opinion throughout most of American history. It also wasn’t the church which challenged and overthrew white supremacy.

Connor Grubaugh argues that I believe that “Christianity lacks any truth conditions whatsoever—that it is devoid of content, a mere vessel of empty signs and symbols, to be filled with foreign substances and remolded to suit them.” No, I am just not historically illiterate enough to make disingenuous theological arguments, especially ones which are flatly contradicted by the history of my own people. I’m on solid historical ground when I point out that Christianity easily adapted itself to racialism, slavery, imperialism, colonialism and white supremacy and much else besides in the New World, Africa and Asia.

Christians had sound theological arguments to justify all of these things.

How do we explain this? Is there simply no truth to Christian doctrine? My view is that the church has traditionally seen its job as the salvation of individual souls. The Kingdom of God isn’t of this world. The church has traditionally drawn distinctions between spiritual equality – the idea that all human beings have souls and are made in the image of God, which is why the church has resisted polygenesis, Darwinism and eugenics – and physical equality or equality in status and condition. The ease with which the church has accommodated the political establishment and adapted to a bewildering variety of authoritarian and hierarchical cultures through history is due to this otherworldly focus.

I suppose you could say that I don’t take American Christianity all that seriously when the Lutheran Church has condemned Martin Luther for anti-Semitism. In my view, it is plainly a subordinate subculture. It follows the dominant Jewish mainstream secular culture like a shadow – the idea that “racism” is immoral, interracial adoptions, political correctness, signaling over gay marriage which has recently become fashionable.

None of this stems from Christian doctrine so much as it does from the dominance of the mass media and basic human nature which is to yearn for social acceptance. Christian leaders want to be seen as respectable and in step with the secular mainstream.

Perhaps this is the real reason why we are now hearing that “the Alt-Right is fundamentally incompatible with Christianity.” The Alt-Right is being criticized by the political and cultural establishment. So naturally this is why their handmaidens in the church have followed suit. A few years from now, Christian conservatives will be arguing that transphobia is fundamentally incompatible with Christianity. The past will also be conveniently discarded in the pursuit of mainstream respectability.

Johann Hari #fundie theguardian.com

Is everything you think you know about depression wrong?
In this extract from his new book, Johann Hari, who took antidepressants for 13 years, calls for a new approach

In the 1970s, a truth was accidentally discovered about depression – one that was quickly swept aside, because its implications were too inconvenient, and too explosive. American psychiatrists had produced a book that would lay out, in detail, all the symptoms of different mental illnesses, so they could be identified and treated in the same way across the United States. It was called the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. In the latest edition, they laid out nine symptoms that a patient has to show to be diagnosed with depression – like, for example, decreased interest in pleasure or persistent low mood. For a doctor to conclude you were depressed, you had to show five of these symptoms over several weeks.

The manual was sent out to doctors across the US and they began to use it to diagnose people. However, after a while they came back to the authors and pointed out something that was bothering them. If they followed this guide, they had to diagnose every grieving person who came to them as depressed and start giving them medical treatment. If you lose someone, it turns out that these symptoms will come to you automatically. So, the doctors wanted to know, are we supposed to start drugging all the bereaved people in America?

The authors conferred, and they decided that there would be a special clause added to the list of symptoms of depression. None of this applies, they said, if you have lost somebody you love in the past year. In that situation, all these symptoms are natural, and not a disorder. It was called “the grief exception”, and it seemed to resolve the problem.

Then, as the years and decades passed, doctors on the frontline started to come back with another question. All over the world, they were being encouraged to tell patients that depression is, in fact, just the result of a spontaneous chemical imbalance in your brain – it is produced by low serotonin, or a natural lack of some other chemical. It’s not caused by your life – it’s caused by your broken brain. Some of the doctors began to ask how this fitted with the grief exception. If you agree that the symptoms of depression are a logical and understandable response to one set of life circumstances – losing a loved one – might they not be an understandable response to other situations? What about if you lose your job? What if you are stuck in a job that you hate for the next 40 years? What about if you are alone and friendless?

"Drug companies would fund huge numbers of studies and then only release the ones that showed success"

The grief exception seemed to have blasted a hole in the claim that the causes of depression are sealed away in your skull. It suggested that there are causes out here, in the world, and they needed to be investigated and solved there. This was a debate that mainstream psychiatry (with some exceptions) did not want to have. So, they responded in a simple way – by whittling away the grief exception. With each new edition of the manual they reduced the period of grief that you were allowed before being labelled mentally ill – down to a few months and then, finally, to nothing at all. Now, if your baby dies at 10am, your doctor can diagnose you with a mental illness at 10.01am and start drugging you straight away.

Dr Joanne Cacciatore, of Arizona State University, became a leading expert on the grief exception after her own baby, Cheyenne, died during childbirth. She had seen many grieving people being told that they were mentally ill for showing distress. She told me this debate reveals a key problem with how we talk about depression, anxiety and other forms of suffering: we don’t, she said, “consider context”. We act like human distress can be assessed solely on a checklist that can be separated out from our lives, and labelled as brain diseases. If we started to take people’s actual lives into account when we treat depression and anxiety, Joanne explained, it would require “an entire system overhaul”. She told me that when “you have a person with extreme human distress, [we need to] stop treating the symptoms. The symptoms are a messenger of a deeper problem. Let’s get to the deeper problem.”

[...]

With each of the nine causes of depression and anxiety I learned about, I kept being taught startling facts and arguments like this that forced me to think differently. Professor John Cacioppo of Chicago University taught me that being acutely lonely is as stressful as being punched in the face by a stranger – and massively increases your risk of depression. Dr Vincent Felitti in San Diego showed me that surviving severe childhood trauma makes you 3,100% more likely to attempt suicide as an adult. Professor Michael Chandler in Vancouver explained to me that if a community feels it has no control over the big decisions affecting it, the suicide rate will shoot up.

This new evidence forces us to seek out a very different kind of solution to our despair crisis. One person in particular helped me to unlock how to think about this. In the early days of the 21st century, a South African psychiatrist named Derek Summerfeld went to Cambodia, at a time when antidepressants were first being introduced there. He began to explain the concept to the doctors he met. They listened patiently and then told him they didn’t need these new antidepressants, because they already had anti-depressants that work. He assumed they were talking about some kind of herbal remedy.

He asked them to explain, and they told him about a rice farmer they knew whose left leg was blown off by a landmine. He was fitted with a new limb, but he felt constantly anxious about the future, and was filled with despair. The doctors sat with him, and talked through his troubles. They realised that even with his new artificial limb, his old job—working in the rice paddies—was leaving him constantly stressed and in physical pain, and that was making him want to just stop living. So they had an idea. They believed that if he became a dairy farmer, he could live differently. So they bought him a cow. In the months and years that followed, his life changed. His depression—which had been profound—went away. “You see, doctor,” they told him, the cow was an “antidepressant”.

To them, finding an antidepressant didn’t mean finding a way to change your brain chemistry. It meant finding a way to solve the problem that was causing the depression in the first place. We can do the same. Some of these solutions are things we can do as individuals, in our private lives. Some require bigger social shifts, which we can only achieve together, as citizens. But all of them require us to change our understanding of what depression and anxiety really are.

This is radical, but it is not, I discovered, a maverick position. In its official statement for World Health Day in 2017, the United Nations reviewed the best evidence and concluded that “the dominant biomedical narrative of depression” is based on “biased and selective use of research outcomes” that “must be abandoned”. We need to move from “focusing on ‘chemical imbalances’”, they said, to focusing more on “power imbalances”.

After I learned all this, and what it means for us all, I started to long for the power to go back in time and speak to my teenage self on the day he was told a story about his depression that was going to send him off in the wrong direction for so many years. I wanted to tell him: “This pain you are feeling is not a pathology. It’s not crazy. It is a signal that your natural psychological needs are not being met. It is a form of grief – for yourself, and for the culture you live in going so wrong. I know how much it hurts. I know how deeply it cuts you. But you need to listen to this signal. We all need to listen to the people around us sending out this signal. It is telling you what is going wrong. It is telling you that you need to be connected in so many deep and stirring ways that you aren’t yet – but you can be, one day.”

If you are depressed and anxious, you are not a machine with malfunctioning parts. You are a human being with unmet needs. The only real way out of our epidemic of despair is for all of us, together, to begin to meet those human needs – for deep connection, to the things that really matter in life.

Rerun Article: Did Dinosaurs REALLY Evolve Into Birds?
I hope everyone had a terrific Harvest Day! As you might recall, last year I took part in the Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) challenge, which requires me to write a 50,000-word novel during the month of November. I am doing this challenge again this year, so I will be posting quite a few rerun articles this month. Don't worry though, I'll pick articles from a little ways back.

Anyway, Thanksgiving will soon be upon us? Do you have any Thanksgiving traditions? If so, leave them in a comment below.

Days till:
It is: 16 days till The Good Dinosaur's theatrical release
It is: 17 days till Thanksgiving
It is: 45 days till Christmas

In the Spotlight:
Again, nothing of note to share this week.

Topic of the Week by Christian Ryan

Did dinosaurs really evolve into birds? What does the fossil record actually reveal?
Every Thanksgiving, people all over the United States cook and serve the American turkey. Despite not being part of the first Thanksgiving, the turkey is a symbol for this holiday. But for many Americans, they aren't merely eating a bird – they're actually eating a dinosaur! Evolutionists believe that all birds, including the turkey, descended from small, feathered theropod dinosaurs; to be more accurate, they actually believe that birds are dinosaurs. Such a claim, if true, would be a major problem for creationists. How should a creationist respond to such this idea? What's the truth behind this belief?

Is this delicious Thanksgiving entree the descendant of dinosaurs?
The idea that reptiles evolved into birds isn't new. Not long after renowned naturalist Charles Darwin published his book in 1859 called On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life . . . it's easy to see why most people just call it The Origin of Species. In 1860, a feather was discovered fossilized in Germany and the species of which the feather belonged to was called Archaeopteryx. In 1863, Sir Richard Owen (the inventor of the name “dinosaur” and a creationist) described an entire skeleton of the creature; the fossils revealed a relatively small creature, with feathered and clawed wings, teeth and a long bony tail. In 1869, biologist Thomas Henry Huxley, often considered “Darwin's Bulldog” declared the animal as the missing link between reptiles – specifically dinosaurs – and birds. Ever since, most evolutionary scientists cling to the idea that theropod dinosaurs evolved into birds.

The similarities between dinosaurs like Compsognathus and birds led Huxley to believe that dinosaurs evolved into birds.
Before we go any farther, we must understand both perspectives of the origin of birds: the creation perspective and the evolutionary perspective. Let's look at them both now. Most evolutionists believe that sometime between the early to late Jurassic Period, about 201-145 million years ago, the scales of small theropod dinosaurs began evolving into fur-like proto-feathers for warmth. After millions of years of evolution, these proto-feathers evolved to be firmer and longer; dinosaurs began using their longer feathers for display purposes, perhaps to attract mates. Evolutionists are unsure as to how the power of flight came about. Some evolutionists believe these feathered dinosaurs were tree-climbers and began using their feathered limbs to glide through the trees; others believe they developed the power of flight from the ground up, using their proto-wings to increase their leaps into the air, perhaps after prey. Either way, these dinosaurs eventually were able to get airborne and were now technically birds.

An early conception of "proto-birds" from 1916.
What does the Bible say about the evolution of birds? Well, it says God created all the flying creatures on the Fifth day of the Creation week, 6,000 years ago, the day before He created dinosaurs.
“And God created...every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good...And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.” Genesis 1:21-23.
This is a major contradiction to the evolution story, which states that dinosaurs came about before birds. Meanwhile the Bible states that land animals – dinosaurs included – came after birds! And instead of evolving through the processes of natural selection and mutation like evolution teaches, birds appeared on earth fully-formed and ready for action.

Evolutionists commonly point to Archaeopteryx as being a transitional form between dinosaurs and birds.
Many evolutionists (specifically atheists) believe that there is too much evidence for evolution for creation to be true. I find it rather interesting how many evolutionists refuse to even consider creation an option; in fact, many will go as far as to say that creationists don't know science. I was browsing the internet and came across an article entitled Feathered Dinosaurs Drive Creationists Crazy by Brian Switek. “Oh, really?” I thought upon seeing this article; I was rather unimpressed by this evolutionist's attempt to denounce creationists. Curious, I read the article, expecting to find much criticism aimed at creationists. Much of the article was devoted to how our view of dinosaurs has changed over the years, but perhaps a quarter into the material, he talked about creationists and the “overwhelming evidence” that dinosaurs evolved into birds, in addition to his other criticisms about dinosaurs living with humans and dinosaurs living 6,000 years ago etc. He also spent a great deal of time talking about Answers in Genesis CEO Ken Ham and the Creation Museum. Here's an excerpt below:
“...dinosaurs with feathers are not welcome at Ham's amusement park [speaking of the Creation Museum]. Even though paleontologists have uncovered numerous dinosaurs with everything from bristles and fuzz to full-flight feathers—which document the evolution of plumage from fluff to aerodynamic structures that allowed dinosaurs to take to the air—creationists deny the clear fossil record.”
He had much more to say of course, some of which I'll get to in a minute. I must say that while reading the article, I was troubled how many misconceptions Switek has about creationism. What really ticks me off is when evolutionists try to make a case for themselves without actually doing the research. I find Switek's ignorance of what we creationists believe appalling. If only he continued to research and find answers to why creationists don't believe dinosaurs evolved into birds, then perhaps he would not have been so bold in his statements. Like any other fossils in the fossil record, even though the observable evidence – dinosaur and bird fossils – can point to or suggest a certain conclusion, they do not speak for themselves and are left to the interpretation of the individual based upon observable evidence. Evolutionists like to claim that creationists start from a presupposition and use that to base their opinions on, while they base their opinions on scientific facts. Now, it is true that we have presumptions, but so do evolutionists! They fail to realize is that they do the exact same thing. In this article, I plan to talk about the evidence for and against the dino-to-bird hypothesis and see what the evidence best suggests.

So what is the “evidence” for this belief in dinosaurs evolving into birds? Switek claims there is a “mountain of evidence that birds are living dinosaurs” and that we creationists deny the clear fossil record. Let's at the so-called evidence now and see whether we're the ones rejecting the clear fossil record. Before we go on though, let me explain that evolutionists do not believe all dinosaurs evolved into birds; they believe the ancestors of birds are maniraptorans, small theropod (meat-eating) dinosaurs. Some of these dinosaurs include Deinonychus, Troodon and the famous Velociraptor.

Dromaeosaurs, such as this Velociraptor, are commonly seen as relatives of modern birds.

Bird-hipped and Lizard-hipped Dinosaurs
Evolutionists are quick to mention that maniraptorans are very similar to modern birds anatomically. This is true. In fact there are over 100 skeletal features that dinosaurs share with birds; some dinosaurs such as Velociraptor even had a wishbone. But what is often not mentioned are the often quite significant differences between the two. Within the order Dinosauria there are two subcategories in which dinosaurs are divided, saurischians (lizard-hipped dinosaurs) and ornithiscians (bird-hipped dinosaurs). The dinosaurs in these two categories are divided based upon their hip shape. The difference between the two hip shapes is the pubis bone; the pubis bone in birds and bird-hipped dinosaurs points toward the rear instead of to the front as in lizard-hipped dinosaurs, modern reptiles and mammals.

Saurischian or lizard-like hip structure.

Ornithischian or bird-like hip structure.

Problem with dino-to-bird evolution? All the dinosaurs that evolutionists believe are related to birds (e.g. Velociraptor, Troodon, Sinornithosaurus) are lizard-hipped! Dinosaurs that are bird-hipped include Stegosaurus, Triceratops and Parasaurolophus. These dinosaurs bear very few bird-like features and are not believed to have evolved into birds. Yet the few times this is ever mentioned in secular literature, documentaries and etc. this problem is never presented any emphasis. And why would they?

The lumbering 4-ton Stegosaurus is a bird-hipped dinosaur, meaning it must have evolved into birds! Right? Of course not!

Three-Fingered Hands

The hand bones of Dienonychus (left) and Archaeopteryx (right) are quite similar.
Evolutionists absolutely love to talk about how both theropods and birds have three-fingered hand bones. Evidence of a dino-bird relationship? Hardly. As birds supposedly evolved from theropods, you'd expect that the digits represented in the hand bones would be the same in both dinosaurs and birds. However, dinosaurs have the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd digits (the first being the thumb); birds have the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th digits in their hand. What happened?

Avian vs. Reptilian Lungs

The dinosaur Sinosauropteryx was so well preserved, that the reptilian-like lungs have also been fossilized.
If theropods are the ancestors of birds, you should find avian-like lungs in theropods. Of course, as most dinosaur remains are fossil bones, we can't know too much about their lungs and respiratory system. However, paleontologists have discovered the fossilized remains of a Sinosauropteryx, a small bird-like theropod from China, related to Compsognathus. This Sinosauropteryx specimen retains the outline of the visceral cavity, and it is very well preserved. Much to the dismay of evolutionists, they reveal that the lung is very much like that of a crocodile.

In Switek's article, he mentions how the Creation Museum didn't display feathered dinosaurs, nor does Answers in Genesis portray dinosaurs with feathers in books and DVD's. And he's right. But what if there's actually a scientifically good reason for this? Of course, failing to do his research to see why creationists don't portray feathered dinosaurs, he just scoffs and claims that “they take pride in promoting out-of-date, monstrous dinosaurs that more easily fit their contention that these animals were created separately from all other forms of life.” I'm very sorry Switek, but maybe you are the one who's trying to go against the fossil evidence. Like just about every other evolutionist out there, he claims that creationists just believe in non-feathered dinosaurs because we believe they didn't evolve into birds and then points to so-called “feathered” dinosaurs; no further explanation is given. He would have only had to read a few articles on the Answers in Genesis website to find their true opinion, which I will get to in a minute.

Is there actually evidence to support the belief that dinosaurs, like this Troodon, had feathers?
There are two types of “feathered dinosaurs” you'll hear about: dinosaurs with bird-like flight feathers and dinosaurs with proto-feathers. First let's look at the dinosaurs with “proto-feathers”. In 1996, evolutionists thought they found the amazing proof for their theory upon the discovery of Sinosauropteryx. This small carnivorous dinosaur is associated with the outline of what many believe to be fur-like proto-feathers. But upon looking at the “proto-feathers” closely, you can see that they really aren't that feather-like. They are much more similar to hair in appearence. In fact, it seems to some creationists that seems that these features are actually connective tissue fibers (collagen); this is found in the deeper dermal layers of the skin. These features have been found not only on other dinosaurs, but also ichthyosaurs, dolphin-like marine reptiles! Yet no one suggests these creatures were feathered. Another thing about the "fluffy-looking" structures that creation scientists have noticed is that many of these structures appear almost fur-like. Perhaps some of these dinosaurs were covered in something similar to pcynofibers, fur-like structures found on pterosaurs that are very similar to mammalian hair.

Dinosaurs like Sinosauropteryx might have been covered in a type of "fur".
In this article, Switek mentions this fossil discovery:
“Put feathers on a Velociraptor—we know it had feathers thanks to quill knobs preserved along its arm bones—and you get something disturbingly birdlike, revealing the dinosaur's kinship to the ancestors of Archaeopteryx and other early birds.”
In 2007, scientists published the find of a fossil arm bone of a Velociraptor. Along the forearm are six bumps that they claimed were very similar to those found on the bones of some modern birds. In modern birds the bumps are the quill knobs where feathers were once supposedly rooted. Is this proof of a feathered dinosaur? Perhaps, but sources that talk about this find give no details as to why the quill knobs don't extend further along this bone or if there were other fossils were also examined or how complete the find was. Who's to say this is even the arm bone of a Velociraptor? There are many uncertainties with this fossil. Keep in mind that I'm not doubting the validity of the scientists who studied the fossil, but we should also remember that we should be cautious about such claims based on scant evidence and the claims made by scientists with evolutionary presuppositions.

No feathers seem to have been present on Velociraptor, but pcynofiber-like fuzz is still a possibility.
What about “dinosaurs” that actually have fully-functional actual feathers? Archaeopteryx and Microraptor are two such creatures. Both of these animals bear toothy snouts, clawed and feathery wings and bony tails. They also both have a pair of enlarged retractable toe claws like those of raptor dinosaurs, such as Deinonychus and Velociraptor. Surely this is proof that these animals are the missing links between dinosaurs and birds.

Microraptor is a very unique creature with four fully-functional feathered wings.
First of all the feathers on the bodies of Archaeopteryx and Microraptor are actual feathers and not collagen fibers or fur-like structures. They also have the same digits configuration of modern birds (like modern birds they bear the 2nd, 3rd and 4th digits). Undoubtedly, these animals are birds. The fact that they have reptilian features does not make them half reptile/half bird. In fact, there are several actual birds that have reptilian features: ostriches and baby hoatzins also have clawed wings, and no one questions that these animals are birds; the extinct bird Hesperornis possesses teeth in its beak; and the seriema of today even has an enlarged second toe claw, similar to the ones seen in raptors. If you don't need a missing link between dinosaurs and birds (which creationists don't) then there's no need to call Microraptor and Archaeopteryx anything other than 100% birds.

The seriema is a medium-sized bird living today with an enlarged toe claw, similar to the ones found on dromaeosaurs.
If you look in dinosaur books, you've likely seen diagrams similar to the one below:

This is a typical chart showing the evolution of dinosaurs to birds.
This picture suggests that the fossil record wonderfully displays the evolution from dinosaurs to birds; with more dinosaur-like creatures in lower geologic rock layers and more bird-like creatures in higher layers, slowly evolving more complex feathers. Isn't it strange that we creationists reject the plain evidence in the fossil record as Switek states we do?

Unfortunately, this isn't what the fossil record represents at all! Despite this being portrayed in just about every secular dinosaur book, the “clear fossil record” (as Switek puts it) tells a different story. Archaeopteryx, the famed transitional between dinosaurs and birds is believed to have existed 150-148 million years ago, during the Late Jurassic Period. The problem? Most bird-like dinosaurs that are commonly said to be closely related to birds, according to this worldview, lived before Archaeopteryx! Sinosauropteryx, a dinosaur with “proto-feathers” is claimed to have lived 124-122 million years ago! In fact, most dinosaurs with so-called “proto-feathers” are found above rock layers with more bird-like animals! The only dinosaur with "proto-feathers" that evolutionists have that didn't live after Archaeopteryx is Juravenator. But according to evolutionists, Juravenator lived at the same time as Archaeopteryx! In addition to this, we find birds very similar to the ones we see today living with "dino-birds". A Microraptor skeleton described in 2011 was discovered with tree-perching bird fossils (more bird-like than Microraptor) inside of its abdomen! This animal didn't only live with modern-like birds – it ate them! Even Velociraptor, a very bird-like dinosaur, is usually dated to live about 80 million years ago, long after birds has supposedly been flying through the skies for millions of years. These creatures were hardly ancestors to the birds. I for think the fossil record clearly demonstrates that dinosaurs evolved into birds, don't you? (That was sarcastic by the way).

Of course, I am not at all saying we should find all the transitional forms between dinosaurs and birds if this transition really did occur, but we should find a few. Evolution on this scale would take tens of millions of years and millions of generations between dinosaurs and birds. Where are these fossils? Surely some should have popped up if the "clear fossil record" suggests dinosaurs evolved into birds.

And to make matters even worse for evolutionists, extinct birds such as Anchiornis, Xiaotingia, Aurornis and potentially Protoavis are buried in sediment “older” than Archaeopteryx!

So, Switek, you believe the "clear fossil record" portrays dinosaurs evolving into birds? Hm...

Earlier, I mentioned how Switek claimed creationists don't like feathered dinosaurs. What if a feathered dinosaur with actual feathers were discovered? Would this prove that dinosaurs evolved into birds and that the Bible is untrue? Nope! In fact, nothing in the Bible goes against the idea that dinosaurs might have had feathers. Not only that, but I happen to like the look of feathered dinosaurs; I am not against the notion of feathered dinosaurs in the slightest, just the idea that they evolved into birds. Finding a feathered dinosaur would be no different than finding a mammal that lays eggs. which we actually have! The duck-billed platypus and porcupine-like echidna are monotreme mammals that lay eggs instead of giving birth to live young like all other mammals. Yet they aren't half mammals/half reptiles; they're mammals that lay eggs. We creationists aren't against the idea of feathered dinosaurs at all, it's just that so far, the evidence for feathered dinosaurs is missing in action.

Like Microraptor, the platypus bears characteristics of many different creatures, including the ability to lay eggs, a duck-like bill, a beaver-like tail and webbed feet, a mammal's fur, the ability to use a form of sonar and even a venomous spur. Yet it is not some evolutionary missing link, but a mosaic.
In order to prove that dinosaurs evolved into birds, one would need to find evidence of a transition between the two in the fossil record (like reptile scales evolving into feathers) and the fossil record would need to show dinosaurs and birds evolving in the right order. This is not what we find!

Why haven't evolutionists who love to talk badly about creationists bring up the points I made in this article? An even better question is why would they do such a thing? Never in Switek's article does he even mention these problems with the dino-bird theory (or solutions to them)! Like many other evolutionists out there, he decided to pick on the claim made by creationists rather than the evidence that backs up the claim in order to make creationists sound like unprofessional idiots. What he wrote in this article shows just how utterly and willingly ignorant he is of creationism and what we believe to be true (and more importantly why we believe it to be true).

As I hope to have made clear throughout this article, if one looks at the fossil record from an evolutionary perspective, we don't really learn about the origin of birds. It's really sad how little research Switek did on the truth about creationism, Answers in Genesis, dinosaurs, birds and the fossil record as a whole. I doubt hearing the truth would have actually change his mind, but at least he would have been more informed. Until he decides to learn what creationists actually have to say and only talking about evidence from his own side of the argument, he should avoid talking about creationism altogether. (Unlike him, I used information from both sides).

I do however hope that this article has enlightened you, my readers, and helped you understand that the fossil record doesn't support the belief that birds and dinosaurs didn't share the same lineage, but that they do share the same wonderful Creator God.

You can relax, dinosaur lovers! The turkey you'll have for Thanksgiving this year isn't the descendant of this Velociraptor!

LOL GUTTER SLUT AZN WOMEN, JUST LOL #sexist xoxohth.com

physically, she is small, weak, slender, hairless, with perky tits and round ass, built like a little sex doll for a white man to pound and unload his semen into. even if you're not an ephebophile by nature, you will find yourself beginning to think like one as you grow to appreciate how soft and childlike her supple body is next to your hairy and well muscled form, and how nice and easy it is to dominate her in bed and toss her around like a rag doll.

looking into the cute almond eyes that adorn her silly pancake face, you can read a kind of submissive devotion. the alienness of the oriental features, the minimalism of that nose bridge, the femininity of those hairless and scentless limbs - you feel captivated by this race of women that is so repulsively unlike you, yet so eager to tease and pleasure you, and you become tremendously aroused by this set of circumstances, for you feel like a king.

mentally, she is inexperienced and naive about the world, naive about leading a feminist lifestyle although she may know its tenets. she is also introverted and shy, naturally intelligent yet submissive, eager to please because you are her first white man and that means a lot to her, and overall very self-conscious of her race and its position.

her frame of reference is literally a 5'5" spiky haired asian nerd with 4 inch penis. she will be so grateful that you are a 5'8" white guy with 5 inch penis that she will practically not see any difference between that and porn star proportions, because all she can discern is that you are huge and packing.
she's accustomed to scrawny family members and asian friends with bowl cuts, so if you play in a sports league with friends you will seem like a thrilling alpha sports star. if you're 5'10" she will think you're a muscle man. if you dress reasonably well, she will feel like a village girl invited to be a princess. if you have blonde hair and blue eyes, she will call you ryan gosling in front of her friends as her pussy gushes at the aryan ideal.
over the years she has been trained to differentiate between the asian and white guys, but not so much between different types of white men, so it's unlikely for her to run off with another white man for trivial or whimsical reasons. as a chinky outsider, she will be naive to many of your personal flaws, she will have lower standards, and she will be unable to parse the social inadequacies that a white girl would easily pick up on. in sum, you have more slack with her than with any girl you have had previously.

any time she notices a difference between asian and white races, such comparisons will inevitably run in favor of the white. as the white boyfriend, you will automatically benefit from the broad generalizing racial judgments that result from these frequent outbursts of neurotic self-hatred. your sexy asian girlfriend has a chip on her shoulder and will vent about race a lot. realize that this is mostly to impress you. pat her on the head and remind her that you are the white guy (not the bad guy). it keeps her content, and grateful.

you can get away with doing degrading things to her because although she puts up a front like she's a feminist and sick of white guys with yellow fever, in reality she loves to take abuse because she believes wholeheartedly in white superiority and feels most poignantly the inferiority of her own race. remember that this is a girl who has been obsessed with being owned and bred by a superior race of men since she was a 70 lb. middle school girl who had just talked to a white boy for the first time in her life. she's shared these fantasies with her asian female friends, and even announced them around asian guys and adults, with the corollary that a full asian baby would be runty and undesirable and below what she knows she deserves. this is a girl who knows what she wants, and what she wants is your penis in order to have your seed, your seed in order to have a half-white baby, and that baby for the eugenics of her line and the purification of her womb. she admires you as more than just a man, but as the benefactor of her future children, as the ticket to interracial bliss and her acceptance into a higher, white society. you better believe that, at this point, she has conditioned herself to love the white man, to be caring and nurturing and supportive of the white man, to make him happy and satisfy his needs no matter what.

finally, by dating a white man, she is proudly rejecting her own race, and this is wonderfully good for you. it eliminates or smooths over usual lines of conflict. now you two have something that binds you together, that transcends petty squabbles and usual couples' issues. it frames your relationship in a grander context and gives it a special narrative. the narrative is that she is fleeing her oppressive native culture, hounded by hateful asian men who feel entitled to enslave her, and you are her white knight savior who has dedicated his time to making everything right. this legitimates your feelings of lust when you're pounding her in the ass and she's squealing like a hello kitty toy. this makes you feel bigger and stronger than you normally would when manhandling a petite girl whose utmost desire is to please you. this makes you feel good about yourself, righteous even, and entitles you to make derisive statements about a whole group of people that you have long felt to be beneath your kind - asians. because you know, you know what it means to save a precious asian girl from that sinister race, and you know how it feels to sweep her up in your strong white arms as she mews appreciatively about your bravado and how different you are from every asian guy she's met. now you can indulge in your asian fantasies with this heroic twist and it makes your penis feel so BIG. heck, life's too short to live any other way.

The Magical Land of Progressitopia

There once was a land, a magical land, with a chicken in every pot. And in this land, which was called Progressitopia, there were two peoples. There were those who saw the world as it was, and there were those who saw the world as they oh-so-very-much wished it could be. The former were called the Trads, and the latter, the Progs. It was the Progs who held dominion over this great land, and so it was they who wrote, or re-wrote, her history.

Now, in this kingdom we must remember that Christianity, or “Christianism” as it would later be called (long since forbidden), along with similar such mythological and dogmatic phantasms, remained the foremost, if not the sole, thorn in the Progs’ collectivist butt. Any and all thought or practice that might, in any way, undermine full realization of, and strict adherence to, progressive thinking was, therefore, strictly verboten.

In fact, the Trads, the traditionalist remnant, had proven singularly responsible for the famines, Civil War II and Progressitopia’s endlessly spiraling state of affairs, both foreign and domestic – a state that, notwithstanding all predictions to the contrary, somehow became significantly and enigmatically worse subsequent to the onset of progressive governance.

There was, however, one exception to this rule: Islam. Shadowing the glorious dawn of progressive reign came, from o’er the sea, a mighty and fearsome caliphate. The Muslim faith spread like wildfire. Recruitment efforts were buoyed, and appreciably so, in that, while yet a loving and peaceful religion, any skeptic or “infidel” who failed to convert was either immediately raped and enslaved or summarily beheaded, stoned, shot or blown limb-from-limb.

Whereas Progressitopians, with their one-child-only abortion mandate, stopped reproducing altogether, adherents to the religion of peace rutted like rabbits. Every corner of the globe became thickly populated by devotees of the most praised Prophet Muhammad – peace be upon him.

As global violence and jihad spiked, it seemed for a time that Progressitopia and the Islamic caliphate would be one another’s undoing.

And then something extraordinary happened.

The King of Progressitopia, a brave and handsome man most wise, with visor of gold and scepter of 3-iron in hand, bowed before the great caliph and presented a series of official mea culpas on behalf of his land. He prayed Allah’s forgiveness for incurring his wrath – just desserts for centuries of Progressitopian Imperialism.

And so these two seemingly incompatible kingdoms, with wholly polarized worldviews, agreed to forge an incongruous socio-political partnership – an “Islamo-Progressive Alliance.” The alliance was built upon the maxim: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” The common enemy, of course, had formed its own unholy alliance: the “Zio-Christian Axis of Evil.”

And so it soon came to pass that independent Islamic settlements cropped-up throughout Progressitopia. The Michganistan Territory became, for all intents and purposes, Mecca to the Western Hemisphere.

Presently, the Islamo-Progressive Alliance found itself enjoying a comparatively peaceful seven-year truce. Apart from a weekly handful of suicide bombings, mass shootings and random beheadings, carried out chiefly against Progressitopia’s women and children, things were simply capital.

But then, trouble in paradise – economic turmoil. Toward the middle of the new millennium’s third decade, Progressitopia’s national debt ballooned to over 60 trillion. For many years, Trad economists and “debt alarmists” had warned that Progressitopia’s skyrocketing debt and deficits were unsustainable. These anti-progressive thinkers openly questioned the progressive strategy of taxing and spending one’s way to prosperity.

They felt, irrationally so, that such approach represented, as one provocative naysayer phrased it, “an epically stupid and patently impossible self-contradiction. No more can one spend his way out of debt than can he cheat his way out of adultery.”

Another fundamentalist cynic offered a less hurtful, yet no less sensationalist analogy: “When a bridge’s infrastructure becomes unsustainable,” he alleged, “it will ultimately collapse if its integrity is compromised to the degree that it can no longer support some burgeoning mass. So too it goes, apparently, as relates integrity to politicians, governments and national debt.”

Right-wing propaganda aside, Progressitopia’s economy did, nonetheless, unexpectedly collapse for reasons ultimately deemed inconclusive.

Now, as heretofore told, and as go the history books, Christianism had, from time immemorial, been the very bane of free-thinking humanity’s existence. This hateful mythology had been largely to blame, in concert with its sister-faith, Judaism, and its insufferable cousin, conservatism, an equally curious mental disorder, for all of the world’s wars, slavery, racism, sexism, disease, capitalism, global warming and, most onerously perhaps, gluten sensitivity.

Moreover, both Christianism and conservatism were ultimately determined to have been the catalyst for the systemic phobia outbreak that inexplicably began around the turn of the century. First there was homophobia, an irrational, chronic and debilitating fear of the square-hole-round-peg people, or, as this flamboyant troupe, so enamored with acronymic wordplay, preferred to be called: the “SHRP community.” Since SHRPs displayed impeccable fashion sense and a flair for the fabulous, Neanderthalic Trads were, most naturally, terrified by them.

Then came Islamophobia, the irrational fear of having one’s head lopped off, followed by transphobia, the fear of naked men in ladies’ locker rooms, polyphobia, the fear of communal rompathons, as well as an all-inclusive litany of other phobias relating to myriad sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions.

Next, there emerged the great progressiphobia pandemic of ’27. This involved an equally absurd, though no less universal, fear of progressive thought, practice or people. This, for a time, threatened to halt Progressitopia’s progressing progress altogether.

Finally, there occurred a worldwide outbreak of phobia-phobia. This was, of course, a condition delineated by the once again irrational denial that any of the aforementioned phobias had “any basis in reality whatsoever,” but, rather, were “simply ham-fisted pejoratives intended to marginalize one’s political opposition.”

But, alas, we must for now part ways. My gluten-free frittata grows cold.

The Battle of New Orleans was one of the most decisive battles in the entire history of the world–the New World equivalent of Marathon or Thermopylae.... Its outcome determined whether the Tabernacle of David, or revived Israel, would survive in the New World!!

Throughout the coming year, patriotic U.S. citizens are planning a whole series of events to celebrate this great bicentennial, culminating in a grand finale of fireworks in New Orleans on January 8, 2016!!

General Jackson's miraculous victory should be a worldwide celebration. With the limitless financial resources of the New World at her disposal, Britannia would have truly MISRULED the waves globally....A modern day version of ancient Tyre and Sidon.

All the New World was given to Spain by a grant of Pope Alexander VI under the forged Donation of Constantine.

Since Emperor Constantine was British, the British also claimed the New World.

There was no place for a revived state of Israel in the proposed British Crown Colony of Louisiana!!

Additionally, the British had a fort in the Oregon Territory called Fort George which was their beachhead for the conquest of California!!

In 1533, Britannia was first declared an Empire when King Henry VIII found out that Emperor Constantine was British:

Where by divers sundry old authentic histories and chronicles it is manifestly declared and expressed that this realm of England is (was) an empire, and so hath been accepted in the world, governed by one supreme head and king having the dignity and royal estate of the imperial crown of the same. (Act in Restraint of Appeals, 1533).

[...]

Unknown to general Jackson, a British spy commanded his militia on the West Bank of the Mississippi River . . . and that almost led to disaster!!

The hard charging colonel William Thornton led the British army on the West Bank of the Mississippi River.

He almost reached New Orleans because the West Bank was commanded by a British spy named general David Morgan.

Judas Morgan and his troops began a precipitous flight which almost turned a British rout into a victory.

Morgan the spy was unable to communicate with Thornton, otherwise he would have advised him to concentrate his forces on the West Bank and thus obtain an easy victory.

Only general Jackson's heroic defense of the East Bank saved the day. Colonel Thornton had to withdraw his men just when Morgan opened the door to New Orleans....That is why the Holy Bible says that spies are despicable!!

Our great JEHOVAH fought for general Jackson as he fought for Joshua during the conquest of Canaan. The battle was brief but intense; it only lasted for about an hour, but during that time, all the British planning and scheming for the American and French Revolutions came to nothing:

Advance our waving colours on the walls;
"New" Orleans is rescued from the English wolves (Shake-speare, Henry VI, Act I, Scene VI).

[...]

Contrary to Kisssin' Cousins Charles Darwin, the Holy Bible says that man is to provide his food by farming . . . and not by hunting like a wild beast. The pioneers tried to bring Christianity and civilization to the Native Americans who lived by hunting and fighting. The British wanted them to remain in their primitive state in order to scalp the pioneers and collect beaver pelts!!

[...]

The British are still in violation of the Monroe Doctrine!!

The great task of expelling the British from the New World, so nobly begun by general Jackson and his brave militia, is still not complete. As long as the British control Canada, this Republic will continue to be the focus of intense spying, industrial espionage, and weather warfare.

As President, the overriding concern of James Monroe was the safety of the New Republic in the Wilderness. His policy, which became known as the Monroe Doctrine, became a cornerstone of U.S. foreign policy, and was designed to prohibit any foreign country from ever again interfering in the affairs of the New World Republics.

A huge statue of our Hero on horseback is located in Lafayette Square across from the White House.

James Monroe appointed general Jackson head of the 7th Military District responsible for the southern United States.

As President, he promulgated the Monroe Doctrine which prohibits any European nation from having colonies in the New World.

Here is a brief excerpt from the Monroe Doctrine:

The occasion has been judged proper for asserting, as a principle in which the rights and interests of the United States are involved, that the American continents, by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintain, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European powers. (1823 Monroe Doctrine).

After the Civil War, Canada was invaded and forcibly annexed to the Britain Empire by Colonel Garnet Wolseley.

During the Civil War, New Orleans was actually controlled by the British Confederacy for 2 years. Before that bloody conflict, only 2 national holidays were celebrated: January 8 and July 4. Most patriotic people still celebrate the 4th but January 8 has been dropped due to intense British propaganda. They are working on eliminating the 4th right now.

It's time that all liberty-loving people restore and celebrate this great anniversary once again.

Alhough the Globalist CIA agents who almost always win the "prestigious" Nobel Peace Prize are instantly puffed-up on the front page of Sulzberger's Slimes; Nobel Laureates in the scientific or literary fields are generally confined to the inner pages. This is not the case with 2015's Literature winner - Svetlana Alexievich of Belarussia (small allied "sister state" of Russia).

Far from being back-paged, Ms. Alexievich is prominently plastered smack-dab in the center of the all-important front page. News of her victory has also been prominently mentioned by the TV talking heads of America and vassaled Europe. This is unusual for two reasons. First of all, she's not an American. Why such hype over a Belarussian? Secondly, her works are not even widely read in English - the de facto "international language". So, what's up with the sudden shout-out for Sveltana? Moreover, why was the Nobel Prize for Literature even awarded to a non-fiction writer in the first place? That hasn't happened in 50 years!

Liitle known Svetlana of little known Belarussia was suddenly immortalized by the Cool Kids Club of the West.

The astute and discerning real intellectuals who read The Anti-New York Times will have already deduced a theory behind the unusual and overnight hyping of the previously unknown Ms. Alexievich. Excerpts from the article itself will serve to confirm those suspicions - as they did for your rat-smelling reporter and his rat-killing feline sidekick here.

Check out these excerpts, and our analysis:

Excerpt: Ms. Alexievich often took risks by taking on contentious elements of Soviet history and challenging the official narrative.

Analysis: Well, the old Soviets were not exactly choir boys. Criticizing the old regime wouldn't necessarily make her a traitor. Continue.

Excerpt: She was seen as a traitor, as unpatriotic,” said Gerald Howard, the executive editor at Doubleday. He published Ms. Alexievich’s book “Zinky Boys: Soviet Voices From a Forgotten War,” about the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan and the trauma experienced by the Russian soldiers and their families. The title refers to the zinc coffins that dead Russian soldiers were sent home in. “She was vilified all over the place for this book,” he said, “and she didn’t back down for a second."

Analysis: Red flag! Alarm bells! In 1979. the Soviets were baited into Afghanistan after a CIA rent-an-army (just like the "rebels" in Syria) overthrew a non-aligned government and set up a hostile regime on Russia's border. This is not to defend the old USSR, but any Soviet writer who cast blame on their own country for the Jimmy Carter-Zbig Brzezinski proxy war in Afghanistan, was, in fact, a traitor to her country.

Instead of blaming Carter, Brzezinski and the Globalists for the suffering caused by the proxy Afghan War "bear trap" against Russia, seditious Svetlana blamed her own country.

Excerpt: Because of her criticism of the government in Belarus, a former Soviet republic, Ms. Alexievich has periodically lived abroad, in Italy, France, Germany and Sweden, among other places.

Analysis: So, long after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, this bitch is still a causing trouble by criticizing the Putin-friendly government of Belarus, from outside the country. Interesting.

Excerpt: In a 2013 interview with German television, she said she hoped the international attention would give her “a degree of protection” in Belarus, where press freedom is under constant threat.

Analysis: Ah, yes. The old "freedom of the press" and "human rights" routine.

Excerpt: "The scope and consistency of her project is unique — the sheer number of people whose stories she’s been able to record,” the writer Keith Gessen, who translated her book about Chernobyl into English, said in an email.

Analysis: Keith Gessen (cough-cough) translated one of her books? Gessen? He wouldn't perhaps be related to Masha Gessen -- the militant lesbian author of a best-selling anti-Putin book who openly stated that she wants to abolish the institution of marriage and traditional family? Nah. It's just a coincidence. But just in case, let us Google: 'Keith Gessen'.

Result: Wikipedia: Russian-born American novelist --- Harvard --- Sibling: Masha Gessen

Excerpt: Some see an obvious political message in the Nobel committee’s choice. Ms. Alexievich’s honor arrives at a moment when Russia is once again flexing its military muscles, in Ukraine and in Syria. In choosing Ms. Alexievich, the Swedish committee continued a long tradition of using the award to tweak Soviet and now post-Soviet authority.

Analysis: Bingo! There it is! It's always about politics with the Nobel crowd.

Excerpt: On Thursday, Belarus’s President, Aleksandr G. Lukashenko, who has been a frequent target of Ms. Alexievich’s writing, issued a terse congratulatory note.

Analysis: Double Bingo! The Globalists hate President Lukashenko almost as much as they do President Putin.

Excerpt: At a news conference after her award was announced, Ms. Alexievich pointedly referred to Russia’s actions in Ukraine as “occupation.”

Analysis: "Here's your Nobel Prize -- and your check for $972,000 (here)--- now do your thing, baby!"

Excerpt: The spokesman for President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, Dmitri S. Peskov, dismissed Ms. Alexievich’s critique of Russian military aggression. “Apparently, Svetlana just doesn’t have enough information to offer a clear evaluation of what is happening in Ukraine.”

Analysis: Oh we beg to differ on that, Mr. Peskov. Diplomacy may preclude a gentelemen such as yourself from saying so, but not us. This vile villainette, this traitorous tramp, this betraying bitch, has all the information -- as do the greasy Globalists of Nobel, and as do the sleazy scribblers of Sulzberger's Slimes.

*

The Globalist message to the intellectual class of Belarussia, but mainly Russia itself is clear: "If you can somehow get rid of this Putin fellow and rejoin the Cool Kids Club of the West; then fame and fortune will be yours. Just look what we did for that useless hack Svetlana Alexievich!" This anti Putin, anti-Russian obsession is really getting more and more ridiculous by the hour -- and more and more ominous as well.

It’s easy to mock this sort of leftist lunacy, now in “Confederate!” form.

But of course the GOP is the party of–and Trump appeals to–married white gentiles. The closer you are demographically to being a (private sector employed) married white gentile, the more likely you are to be a Trump voter.

Rather the big lie here is that the “who whom” is precisely the reverse of what she claims.

His supporters hark back to an 1860s fantasy of white male dominance. But the Confederacy won’t win in the long run

In the 158th year of the American civil war, also known as 2018, the Confederacy continues its recent resurgence. Its victims include black people, of course, but also immigrants, Jews, Muslims, Latinos, trans people, gay people and women who want to exercise jurisdiction over their bodies.

The desire–demand!–for dominance here is not white men wanting to dominate “black people” and “immigrants, Jews, Muslims, Latinos, trans people, gay people and women”, but the reverse!

“Black people” and “immigrants, Jews, Muslims, Latinos, trans people, gay people and women” are demanding the right to dominate white guys–make white guys work for them and give them their white guy stuff.

They–the “coalition of the fringes” are the “slave power”, trying to enslave white men. Trump’s appeal to us evil white guys is essentially that we can be left alone, live our lives as free men and not be looted and abused by the fringes.

The way you can prove this is who is demanding what from whom? Or who is willing to separate form whom?

This is the acid test that i was attempting to flush out in the previous Zero Ammendment comment thread:

http://www.unz.com/isteve/the-zeroth-amendment-explicated/#comment-2607940

And the distinction between the whines of “oppression” from the fringes and actually slavery in the earlier comment:

http://www.unz.com/isteve/the-zeroth-amendment-explicated/#comment-2607227

~~

This “who-whom” dependency issue is why i think raising the “separate nations” question is quite powerful and needs to be done by Trump and nationalists repeatedly.

Given the open treason and hatred (for white gentiles) that is now routine on the pages of the NYT, i’d be more than happy to split America right now. (We aren’t one nation, when “elites” openly spew out there desire to see the nation’s actual core population dispossesed.)

Let’s have all the Hillary voters group up in their areas–i’ll happily move if that’s necessary. They can have their rainbow hued, open-borders, “nation of immigrants”, hands-up-don’t-shoot, gender fluid utopia. I’m actually not dependent on them and don’t need them whatsoever.

We Trump voters can then have our regular old American nation. We’ll farm our fields, build our houses, tractors, trucks, cars, airplanes, drill for oil and gas (and do solar and nukes) and live our lives and get along just fine … in fact better! without being looted by the fringes.

Mention “separate nations” and the resulting screams of anguish will tell you who is actually intent on looting whom.

The Inhunamity of Utopian Europe

Instead of the religion and the law by which they were in a great politick communion with the Christian world, they have constructed their Republick on three bases, all fundamentally opposite to those on which the communities of Europe are built. Its foundation is laid in Regicide; in Jacobinism; and in Atheisim; and it has jointed to those principles, a body of systematick manners which secures their operation. – Edmund Burke

When Russell Kirk published his book The Conservative Mind, Thomas Molnar commented that Kirk had proved there were conservative-minded American thinkers but had failed to show they had any major impact on the American experiment in government. A point well taken. At every critical juncture in the early days of the American republic, it was the secular utopians, men like Franklin, Madison, Jefferson, and Marshall, who won the day and put their radical imprint on the American government. The ideals of liberty, fraternity, and equality were lurking in the foundational documents of the U. S. Constitution. And there was great bloodshed; when the radical nature of the American government was challenged in the 1860s, the savage god of the utopians unleashed his terrible swift sword on the offending white, Christian Europeans of the South. The war cry then, as it is now, was liberty, equality, and fraternity!

It’s significant that Lafayette, a supporter of the American Revolution, also became part of France’s regicide government. There are many differences in style between the two revolutions, the American and the French, but the spirit animating both is the same: it is the spirit of the archangel Satan.

The presence of an anti-Christian, anti-white nation such as the United States on the world stage would not be as great a danger to white people as it now is if the other European nations were not smaller caricatures of the United States. Every European nation is following in the United States’ footsteps, at slightly slower rates, because they have more traditional European baggage to throw away before they completely succumb to liberalism and its attendant negro-worship.

It is always encouraging when a European nation objects to any part of the American liberal agenda. For instance, I don’t think Russia is a sound nation – they did not, as Solzhenitsyn had hoped, reject the materialism of western democracy when Russia abandoned communism. And they have some negro athletes (one is too many) on their sport teams, but they did issue a counter-attack against America’s deification of sodomy. It was quite heartening to see Russia celebrating the traditional family over and against America’s satanic family ideal.

I wish more European nations would resist American influence, but unfortunately the hatred of the white race and the Christian religion is a virulent virus throughout the European world. It will take more than the removal of the United States to kill the virus; it will take a resurgence of the European spirit, which is undemocratic, militantly Christian, and unapologetically racist.

It grates on conservatives’ nerves (something akin to fingernails scraping a blackboard) when you suggest that America was not founded on sound conservative principles, but isn’t it quite obvious that our negro-worshipping, sodomite present is linked to our anti-European past? What was good in America had nothing to do with the democratic idea men, but it had everything to do with the European Americans who brought the faith and ethos of the white man to America. What binds together the American Revolution, the French Revolution, and all the European revolutions that have followed in their wake is a commitment to an utopian, democratic future that has no place for a God with a heart of flesh and for the people who championed that God. What Butterfield admired in the English, prior to the 20th century, was that they went into the future holding onto the strings of their past. Once England followed the American and French example and cut those strings connecting Britons to their past, the sacred soil of Christian Britain became fertile ground for the growth of Islam and negro-worship. Without a past, we are not a people, we are just abstractions of the liberals’ utopian minds, to be eliminated whenever it becomes politically expedient to do so. And the expedient moment has come: The white man must be eliminated, to make way for a new people purged of the sins of the past and ready to live and strive in the new non-Christian, non-white utopia of the future.

One of the great movies of all time is The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm. The movie tells the story of Wilhelm Grimm’s (the ‘impractical’ brother) efforts to preserve the folk tales of his people that we now call Grimms’ fairy tales. At one point in the film, Wilhelm becomes sick and appears to be dying. He has collected the tales in his head, but he has not yet put them on paper. All the people from Fairyland – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, the Frog Prince, and so on – come before Wilhelm in a dream sequence and beg him not to die so that they will not die. On Wilhelm Grimm rests the fate of fairytale Europe.

Wilhelm does not die and the fairytale people live to nourish and enrich the lives of all true Europeans. But their fate, the fairytale people of Europe, once again hangs in the balance. Such folk tales, many that go all the way back to the time of our Lord and perhaps were told by Him when He trod on England’s green and pleasant land, came from the lifeblood of the European people. If Europeans no longer believe they are a people with a great spiritual heritage, they will not preserve their past; they will be Undines, resembling human beings on the outside, but inwardly lacking an animating spirit. Our Lord told us that unless we become as little children we will not inherit the kingdom of heaven. The fairytale comprehension of life, represented by those tales collected by Wilhelm Grimm, is all in all. Only the Europeans saw that it was not tragic that “we are such stuff as dreams are made on.” A dream that is grounded in the visionary heart of the European people is a dream that brings us face to face with our Lord on the road to Emmaus. “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened to us the Scriptures?” Of course the apostles’ hearts burned within them, and did not our hearts burn within us when we lived in fairytale Europe rather than in multicultural Europe?

The churches have played their part, a diabolical part, in killing the European people. “Of what use is a past when you have the anointed ones to tell you about God?” Of what use indeed? I think an antique European would answer the godded men with this question: “Of what use is the historical Jesus?” If you reject the flesh-and-blood people who loved Christ enough to build their civilization with Him as the incarnate center, then where is our incarnate Lord to be found? In the midst of multi-cultural Babylon? Or is He to be found in the future? If that is the case, then how do we differ from the Jews, who reject the historical Jesus but look to the future for the coming of their God. In Ian Maclaren’s great masterpiece Beside the Bonnie Brier Bush, in the chapter called “His Mother’s Sermon,” a young minister returns to his hometown to preach his first sermon. He is filled with Biblical history and the latest university-taught theology, but right before he ascends the pulpit, he remembers the words of his mother on her death bed:

“I canna see ye noo, John, but I know yir there, and I’ve just one other wish. If God calls ye to the ministry, ye’ill no refuse, an’ the first day ye preach in yir ain kirk, speak a gude word for Jesus Christ, an’ John, I’ll hear ye that day, though ye’ll no see me, and I’ll be satisfied.”

As the bred-in-the-bone Europeans die out, the Europeans with hearts of flesh, there is no one left to “speak a gude word for Jesus Christ.” Our fairy king of Europe has faded away and been replaced by the negro, because His people have faded away.

I don’t know if Christ actually set foot on England’s green and pleasant land when He was on this earth in the flesh. I like to think He did, but it is not of vital importance. The important thing is that He visited Europe in the flesh through His people. When we are in contact with His Europe we are just as close to Him as the apostles were on the road to Emmaus. I shall never forget the feeling of awe that came over me some forty years ago when I set foot in Britain. The land of Shakespeare, Scott, and Dickens, an important part of His Europe! How can we allow such a fairytale land to become the haven of Muslims and colored heathens? Anthony Jacob, after listing the white man’s considerable material accomplishments, proceeds to the real significance of the white man’s accomplishment: It is white people who built the only civilization that was dedicated to something more than material things; their civilization was consecrated to Him who was and is the personal God above the material dust of this world. I can’t read any classic work of European literature or view an old movie that depicts Europeans from long ago without feeling sadness and anger. Sadness because of that which is lost, anger against those who destroyed Christian Europe and against those Europeans who refuse to fight for its restoration. Our love of our people in and through the historical Christ built Christian Europe. A renewal of that love, for them and for Him, will restore Christian Europe.

I’m at the age when a lot of my friends and relatives are getting sick and dying. Last year, for instance, I watched my father die very slowly and inhumanely in the hands of an inhumane medical staff. And in the past four months I witnessed the slow painful death of a friend, who also suffered a needlessly painful death at the hands of an inhumane medical staff. My run-ins with modern “medicine” are not isolated incidents. There is an overwhelming testimony building, from liberals, grazers, and conservatives, that there is something monstrous going on in the medical profession. How could it be otherwise? The churches jettisoned the European Christ for a theory of God, and the liberals abandoned Him for the negro gods. The issue isn’t whether there were or were not American conservative thinkers; both Kirk and Molnar were wrong when they placed thought, divorced from the lifeblood of the European people, at the center of existence. To hell with that kind of abstract existence. Everything in modern Liberaldom now consists of statistics. My father was past ninety; what difference did it make if he starved to death; at best he had one or two more years. My neighbor had two terminal diseases; what difference did it make if she was left in bed without any attempts to move her limbs except when her husband or friends came in to do it? What difference does anything make since we all are doomed to suffer and die? It used to make a difference to Christian Europeans. They did not make their humanity the slave of inhuman statistics. You prolong life, even if it is aged life, because He wants it that way. We all die, certainly, but doesn’t it behoove Christian Europeans to place a Christ-like presence before the sick and dying so that they pass into eternity with Christ’s name on their lips? The brave new world is upon us. When He is absent, because the Europeans have gone whoring after other gods, then all is “cheerless, dark, and deadly.” The Murdstones are two of the most consummate villains in all of literature, and they commit all their villainies in the name of religion despite the fact that there is nothing Christian in their religion: “’And do you know I must say, sir,’ he continued, mildly laying his head on one side, ‘that I DON’T find authority for Mr. and Miss Murdstone in the New Testament?’” Indeed, that is the point. What is the liberals’ and the church men’s authority for this ‘utopia’ they have thrust upon us? It is certainly NOT His authority. And what other authority is there for a European?

Dostoyevsky’s underground man said that, “A man lives his whole life to prove he is not a piano key.” Yes, but let us deepen the underground man’s defiant declaration: “A man lives his whole life so that he can say, ‘Into thy hands I commend my spirit, O Lord.” That is what being a European is all about. +

The White Shitlib Ego is ravenous. It’s why shitlibs would rather oversee the destruction of White Civilization than admit their Equalism religious beliefs are based on falsehoods.

The Confederate statues being torn down across the South are just the latest battle fronts opened up by shitlibs who obey the credo that a good offense is the best defense. As the shitlib religion sits on a very shaky foundation that the Maul-Right is currently rupturing with seismic waves of realtalk, it behooves shitlibs to press their hate machine forward, into enemy territory, for to give even one inch of ground to heretics would mean the eventual reversal and defeat of every belief that shitlibs hold dear and former social, philosophical, and political grounds they occupied. And shitlibs know this, because it is the art of rhetorical war that they have practiced and perfected for decades against cuckservatives, solidifying and entrenching the Left’s march through the institutions.

The lesson: never give the Left an inch. They’ll take a parsec. Confederate statues today, books authored by White men tomorrow, until it finally reaches end game: second class status for all Whites outside of a few Acela elites who sufficiently grovel at the altar of anti-Whitism.

The human shitlib ego is the most powerful force in the cosmos. And never have the fortifications guarding that ego been under relentless attack like it is now. Shitlibs can sense it. The deluge is coming for them. Equalism is dead. The race and sex gaps won’t disappear any time soon. This is why leftoids are flirting with insanity; their interventions to solve the Gaps have been one failure after another, so they’ll need to adopt increasingly extreme anti-White postures to explain the persistence of the Gaps.

Hence the humiliation porn fix driving shitlibs to tear down symbols of White Southern heritage. This isn’t about honoring heroes of the Confederacy or showing the Confederate flag (which in point of fact was never a social crisis in America until shitlibs made it one in the past few years); it’s about shitlibs needing to dig deeper into the fever swamps of anti-White hatred to explain away race and sex gaps that make mockery of shitlibs’ guiding principle: the equalist belief that all humans, under the hood, are the same in aptitude, behavior, and moral worth, and that only White racism prevents the flowering of their Equalist paradise.

Make no mistake, the Left’s Confederate statue cultural sanitization project is JUST THE BEGINNING. Soon, it’ll be “the mere presence of Whites is keeping the black man down” and shitlibs will have their hamster rationalized justification for, say enforcing anti-White employment quotas.

As a Gab follower wrote in response to the preventable Manchester terror attack,

" shitlibs are so emotionally invested in their beliefs, they would rather be martyred by their invaders than admit they’re wrong, which would force them to change their sense of identity."

The shitlib ego is impenetrable, even by muslim nail bombs. Shitlibs will never give up on their Equalism religion; they’ll have to be forced out of power and shamed into hiding.

The follow-up question would be: why are shitlibs so invested in their obviously false belief in the equalism of humanity and protective of their egos? My answer gets to the reason I wrote this post: it could be genetic (shitlibs have inherited disfigured brain architecture) or it could be that social atomization, cultural balkanization, and mass society (SCALE) have reduced the scope of identity to ideology alone.

In sum, shitlibs cling to their outmoded and frankly dumb Equalism ideology because globohomoist forces of complexity and organic community destruction have created a social atmosphere where ideology is the only communal touchstone left for them to feel like they’re part of a group larger than themselves.

Related: The Chinese are even getting in on the act of mocking self-annihilating White shitlibs. They’ve come up with a word to describe them: baizuo, which means “white left”. Soon, the whole world will laugh at White shitlibs, and then and only then will their egos finally be defeated, and then there won’t be another White Left rule for a thousand years.

AutisticSubhuman #fundie reddit.com

I believe that either inceldom is a worse fate than being raped, or they are two incomparable sufferings.

First, let's compare the two. Inceldom is the result of being a complete societal reject. It means everyone in the world either hates you, finds you sexually repulsive, or has no interest in you. Being an incel requires daily reflection on this fact because man is simply not meant to live this way. It is unlikely not experienced in this, women especially, can fathom this unique and painful hell. Being alone to the extent we are could be compared to actual torture inflicted upon the worst criminals in the world. Because of this Incels regularly cycle between the emotions of violent hate, severe depression, and abject fear. I can tell you there hasn't been a moment in my life for the past 5 years where I have felt a single positive emotion.

On the opposite side, unless you're a Josef Fritzl kid or a complete whore (will expand on this later), rape is a singular ordeal. I have no doubt that it's painful and traumatic, but its victims are able to wake up and know that their suffering is over and they just have to deal with the mental fallout. As an Incel, every day I wake up, I have to prepare myself that all I will experience is mental anguish and suffering and there is nothing I can do to stop this. Victims of rape are able to go on to live happy lives with partners after their ordeal. They are able to go out with friends and have fun. They are able to go to events, concerts etc. All of these little life experiences they have are denied to Incels. Rape victims at least know that they are desirable to society by something; their body. Incels feel completely useless to everyone on earth, no one cares about them for anything.

Secondly, Rape is far, far easier to prevent than Inceldom is. All you have to do to be an Incel is be born as a male without the traits to succeed socially in whatever arbitrary society you were born in. I was fated into Inceldom simply due to my genetics and never had any hope to escape it. Men may enter inceldom purely due to a single bad life choice, such as going to a private high school, not hitting on a certain goal, having an introverted youth etc.

On the contrary I would assume that around 90% of rape victims have brought upon themselves. Obviously children and those who were simply grabbed in alleyways have my pity, but these are a rarity of cases. Most rapes occur from the following two things: 1. Being a terrible judge of character and 2. Partaking in seriously dangerous behavior.

On the first type of rape, we live in a world where most of the rapes occur by someone a woman knows. This is because in sexually liberal societies such as ours women will always want to hang out with the "Bad boys" and who they view as dominant and cool but are in reality just lecherous creeps (moreso than any Incel could ever be.) Well, if they hang around these people and get raped then you have no pity in my book because there are plenty of decent men being ignored by society they could have chosen to hang with. If you sleep with dogs don't be surprised if you wake up with fleas.

On the second type of rape, I would argue that most of these are preventable because they are the result of another bad decision. For example, going out drunk to places where there will be many male strangers is obviously very dangerous behavior but feminists have taught society that it is "slut-shaming" to state this. This is the main reason why I think the whole "rape crisis" bullshit is overblown. If women truly feared and were broken by rape they wouldn't be willing to go out every Saturday night and end up in the beds of strangers. They would be too afraid to even engage in this behavior. The fact that they're willing to even risk it proves either rape is overblown in the amount of trauma it inflicts upon someone, or women are truly too stupid to see that B comes after A. Either way if there were a single thing I had to give up in life, even if it profoundly impacted the way in which my life is set up, I would be willing to do so in a heartbeat. That's how serious inceldom is to me. I would be willing to give up the internet, drugs, any type of my favorite food, if it meant a chance of finding love, intimacy and acceptance.

Finally, there are many resources available to women who have been raped. Rape crisis centers, tumblr blogs, online help sites, therapists etc. There are buildings in this world funded by taxpayer dollars for the sole sake of rape. What do Incels have to deal with their own issues? Nothing. Just a couple of small internet refuges scattered across the web, many of which have become invaded by the same normies that we have been rejected by. We have been systemically denied a public voice due to the fact we are social rejects, and every time we try to appeal for sympathy we are shut down by hateful demagogues who hurl insults like "Entitled", "Manchild" and "Loser" at us. Any small dose of sympathy we get from people outside our own circle is merely virtue signaling, these people just don't care about us at all and if they do all they feel is hatred.

Also, seeing as though how the main issue to deal with rapes is just the mental fallout, meaning many traditional methods of mental healthcare are effective in treating it such as therapy and psychiatry. Getting through these issues with a therapist is easy and the fact that you have your voice not denied, but elevated by society, makes coming back from being a rape victim a much more seamless process. Fixing Inceldom through therapy and psychiatry is a ludicrous goal, to the extent that we ban anyone who suggests this. Therapy does not help incels because mental health professionals are unable to fix the root causes of our situation, being societal rejects with wasted youths. They cannot change reality. They can only make us cope with what is a lifetime prison sentence, which is bullshit.

This post is getting long now but I hope you read it all. It is important for this topic to come up because it proves how pathetically easy a woman's life is, and how utterly incapable they are of fathoming our situation. Rape, the "worst thing that can happen to a woman" is a situation that is completely benign comparable to the horrors, the pure unending agony of Inceldom. We are broken souls, rejected at every level, and destined to die alone without a single soul to share our lives with. Don't downplay how we feel, because I guarantee you that you can't grasp with what this life feels like unless you've experienced it directly.

That said I welcome all criticism and debate. I am a man, meaning that there are some realities of rape that I do not understand. Though from careful analysis it seems like inceldom is way worse than being raped.

Re: No Sex in the City: What It’s Like to Be Female and Foreign in Japan

This article gets posted constantly on MGTOW blogs. Its seen as proof that white women are jealous and bitter about WMAF. Many MGTOWs romanticize Fascist Japan, as a reverse shadow world, where it is the white women who are lonely and alone.

For me the line that stuck at me the most was

“what did it matter if their peculiar quirks and bizarre comments got lost in translation a little? Even the socially awkward deserved to love and be loved.”

She reduces the misogyny of the white males who seek out Geisha dolls in Patriarchal Japan to “social awkwardness”. Contrary to what the MGTOWs say, she is not bitter or angry at the arrangement. She is happy that the biggest losers of western society have finally found women low enough to stoop to their level.

And I have found that this is the general attitude of white women towards WMAF, a benign neglect. Who am I to judge?

Some might see this as an admirable tolerant attitude. But let us not forget that relationships are not a victimless crime. There is a third party involved- the Hapa children. And because white girls are so high-minded and indifferent about WMAF, they are letting horrible Hapa slavery be committed right before their eyes.

As a colored woman forced to submit to the dictates of my sexist and racist WMAF parents, this is exactly how I feel- a slave. I’m a slave to imperialism and patriarchy. I was born out of a relationship that is explicitly anti-feminist. And it chills me to the bones.

Even on a supposed Feminist site like Jezebel, Korean women casually relate replaying such erotic thrillers like the warcrimes and rape of My Lai.

“One man’s sexytalk, for want of a better word, was very racially charged in a very icky sort of way, and his favourite thing to do was, I can’t believe I’m telling the internet this, white-solder/Asian prisoner roleplays. I put up with it, guiltily, wondering whether I was just being too sensitive, too prudish, and telling myself that I couldn’t afford to be so choosy and sticks and stones etc, etc, etc, and didn’t really have any close friends who could relate that I could talk about it with. I was kind of grateful when he cheated and I was able to leap onto that as a cogent identifiable relatable reason to kick him to the kerb.”

Is there any shock and horror about war crime rapes being played as sexytalk by colored women?

No, that is just the quirky awkwardness of white men in WMAF. White women are just glad that even losers like him can find love.

And how will his Eurasian daughters feel?

It is fitting to me that, the Vietnam hooker from Full Metal Jacket, with such classic lines as ‘me so horny sucky sucky two dollars’ is not a full Asian women, but a Eurasian daughter.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papillon_Soo_Soo

I feel disgust and shame about being born out of such a hate-filled sexist relationship. It defiles me as a woman. I just can’t escape it. It is everywhere I go. Even on Tumblr. I'm continuously being triggered.

I can’t escape who I’m. All I can do is promise to myself that I will never be my mother. Life as a Hapa Female in America is becoming an impossibility for me. I refuse to live my mother’s choices. I need to escape somehow. I refuse to be the daughter of my mother. I will never become her. I just feel so creeped out by my dad. I’m so terribly alone. Surrounded by men who hate me. Life in this country is undesirable for a Hapa girl. White women are not going to ride in to the rescue and save me.

What are we Eurasians going to do? How can we live knowing where our origins lie? The anguish, torment, agony. Existing to be a victim for men. It is driving me into insanity. I’m not a healthy woman.

Anna Diehl #fundie 924jeremiah.wordpress.com

The miracle of life begins the very second that a sperm enters an egg. At that moment, drastic changes happen to the egg, other sperm are blocked from entering it, and the great mystery of human life begins. To try and deny that this is the beginning of a human being simply because it doesn’t look like a human being is wrong. A tadpole doesn’t look like a frog, yet it is still a frog in the making. To kill a tadpole, is to kill a frog, and to kill a fertilized human egg, is to kill a human being.

Trying to tell God when we think the evolving human becomes advanced enough to meet our approval is utterly obnoxious. He has made the creation of humans a continuous, ongoing process which begins the moment sperm and egg meet. So then, when it comes to murdering our infants, we commit abortion anytime we intentionally destroy a fertilized egg. This means that any form of birth control which does harm to a fertilized egg is a weapon of murder, and must be considered morally unacceptable for Christians. On the other hand, forms of birth control which prevent sperm and egg from ever meeting can be considered morally acceptable, since no life is being destroyed. On their own, a human egg and a human sperm will never create a human being, just as an amputated arm will never grow back the body it was separated from. We are not committing murder when we discard a man’s arm, nor are we committing murder when we destroy eggs or sperm.

Even though it is morally acceptable for a Christian to use certain forms of birth control, God might direct you as an individual down a different course of action. Some Christians feel strongly convicted that it is morally unacceptable to try and interfere with God’s creation process in anyway. If this is how you feel, you need to obey your convictions. If God specifically tells a man not to use condoms, then the man needs to obey those clear instructions. But before you obey any instructions, you need to make sure that they are actually coming from God and not just from people or Satan.

In the Church, Christians have become far too slack about the issue of birth control. Some have talked themselves into believing it is fine to slaughter a human in the making, as long as they do it within a certain window of time. This is a lie from Satan. God has allowed us to invent amazing tools with which we have been able to film the entire conception process live with a camera right inside the female womb. If in doing this, we had observed the exact moment when the soul enters the body, then we could make a sound argument for a human embryo being “not quite human” before it received its soul. But as it is, God does not show us any such moment. It is an utter mystery to us how soul and body come together. What we do know for certain is that the soul of a child is very much present inside his mother’s womb. In the Bible, John the Baptist was still in his mother’s womb when he had a spiritual reaction to being in the Presence of unborn Jesus. Both babies were not yet born, yet they were spiritually communicating somehow. Such a story should make us quite reverent of the whole creation process. Since God is intentionally not telling us how soon the soul gets involved in the creation process, we must play it safe and assume that it could come the very moment an egg becomes fertilized. There is no possible grounds on which we can argue that the soul is not present from the very moment that the formation of a physical body begins. This being the case, we should be most fearful of flushing fertilized eggs from the body as if they are so much garbage. To treat life in such a disrespectful manner is to insult God.

Religious Fanatic #fundie forums.anglican.net

Insulting non-believers

But if the Spotless One could call people a brood of vipers and children of the devil, I guess sinless wrath is technically possible...

I heard this argument used at an abusive and very hypocritical apologetics forum. They'd use it as an excuse to indulge their carnality. Every single opportunity to exercise their cruelty was given on account of this. They had a very cult-like mentality where they gave you the impression they were the only ones who did things right and all the generosity shown by the more fruit-bearing humble Christians was a fraud. They believed it was more humble to believe in biblical errancy because it was more in touch with modern times, using terrible arguments that had adequate resolutions (I assume because if you leave a door open for errancy in scripture, you can give a foothold to reject other parts you don't like more easily), held to a lot of post-modern political views that were not reconcillable with scripture just to appear 'counter cultural', had a lot of rude and impious humor, a very inconsistent standard of criticism when picking others apart, and a disturbing ambition to spread their cancer to the internet at large. The two notable apologists of this community, known as TheologyWeb, were JP Holding of Tektonics and Nick Peters of Deeper Waters. Both were calloused and cruel, hated by all and fiercely loyal to the cult. They always talked about how important the trinity and resurrection were to Christianity but their behavior was repelling to many. They were mostly preaching to the choir, and TWeb had a serious lack of success in gaining converts overall, unlike the more humble, traditional apologists. After suffering mental abuse by the members while desperately seeking help in the midst of spiritual anguish and doubt, I managed to break away from the community. I prayed, at first for vengeance, but then tried to remain humble and ask that the wolves be driven out and those who still had some potential to do good would repent and use their gifts for good, and that the site would disappear in some way or another or be stifled from influencing the rest of the world.

I eventually learned around 2014 that the site, shortly after I left and prayed, had lost their entire decade-long history in a massive hard drive crash with no backups except the most recent ones that year, and everything else had vanished. Several ardent members left the community to pursue other interests, some taking on a more radical disposition or adopting heretical views, a few even abandoning the faith, and that JP and Nick left the site to pursue their own work separately. And while JP and Peters still defend some rather liberal, erroneous postmodern views, they eventually cleaned up a lot of their contributions and work to remove the demeaning and mocking tone it once had. I consider it the work of God in some way. I hope they continue to grow out of their errors and see the light, as all of us should.

When I look back, I realize how little TheologyWeb taught me about theology. They had some very superficial arguments for some of the bigger aspects of the Christian faith I mentioned, like the resurrection, but nothing that hadn't been explained just as well elsewhere, with all the errors and liberal 'scholarship' excised. I am still angry when I remember the things people did and said to me there, and am mad at myself for falling into the snare and becoming addicted to it so as to allow myself to be abused, but it was a hard lesson to learn. A lot of internet apologists are spreading heresy and liberalism, trying to pass it off under a kind of psuedo-orthodoxy, and it's doing a lot of damage when a lot has to be done in this day and age to defend Christianity from an accurate point of view.

Half a century ago, the grandparents of today’s protesters were protesting. It was the glorious ’60s. Jane Fonda and Peter, Paul and Mary egged the protesters on as did John Kerry, fresh from the fields of Vietnam. On late night TV, Kerry told host Dick Cavett how murderous our troops in Vietnam had been during his tour there. The future presidential candidate and secretary of state was as viciously anti-war as any of the college kids who were blocking access on college campuses and pledging allegiance to our enemy’s leader, Ho Chi Minh.

There wasn’t just one summer of love during the ’60s. There were at least three: ’67, ’68, and ’69. The New Morality (which was simply the old immorality) was afoot. The Sexual Revolution was moving in. Universities were just beginning to lose their footing as places of learning, inquiry and respectful dissent. Much like George Orwell’s animals that were running the farm, students across the country were stating their demands and college presidents were caving.

Guess what the demands were. Better cafeteria food? No. Shorter classes? No. Changing the curriculum? Yes, because “Western Civilization 101 was all about old, white, European men.” More student activities? No. Acknowledgement of racism? Yes.

Forget that the Civil Rights Act had been made law in 1964, that segregation was coming to an end, and that Martin Luther King was successfully awakening the nation’s conscience to racial inequality. According to student protesters, America was still a sordid place. Sound familiar?

In 1967 San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district was the epicenter of student protest. Over 100,000 students gathered there to the strains of “If you’re going to San Francisco / be sure to wear flowers in your hair.” Thus, the Flower Children or hippies whose level of idealism was matched only by the loudness of their scruffy dress, much hair, and bloodshot eyes.

1968 would bring a more subdued summer. Martin Luther King had been assassinated in April. We at all-black George Washington Carver Jr. High School in Meridian, Mississippi, were numb the rest of the school year. Excellent leadership from our principal and a stellar faculty helped students deal with sorrow and crisis. The beginning of the 1968 summer was marked by the June assassination of Bobby Kennedy. Americans felt nervous.

1969 brought the student protest movement to a feverish pitch, but not with violence like that now faced by America’s major cities. On Aug. 15 half a million people waited on a dairy farm pasture near Bethel, New York, for the three-day “music festival of love and peace” to start. Dubbed the Woodstock Festival, the event initiated the era of “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.” The Age of Aquarius was upon us.

Many artists such as Arlo Guthrie, Grateful Dead, and Jimi Hendrix performed. Joan Baez, great with child, sang on the last day. The Beatles chose not to participate. So did Bob Dylan. Some artists questioned the wisdom of doing a concert at a dairy farm.

The centerpiece of the culturally significant Woodstock Festival was freedom of expression. Despite its damaging residue — “free” love and the drug culture — the festival heralded freedom of speech. “To liberal kids weary of restraints and starving for dissent, the festival was heaven,” chortled Rolling Stone magazine.

Compare these “liberal kids” of Woodstock to their grandchildren today. Today’s “liberal kids” aren’t at all “into” free speech. They are demanding limited speech, speech that agrees with their own. We’re talking about kids at colleges and universities, not those who entered manual labor lines of work. How interesting that out of our places of higher learning has come a generation of youth that no longer believes in freedom of speech, but in shaming and shushing all who disagree with them, whether on Black Lives Matter, homosexuality or Donald Trump. How interesting that “deplorable kids” like electricians, plumbers, farmers, firefighters, cops, carpenters and small business owners are still the ones who keep the world turning, including the university campus.

Yet, the “deplorable kids” — those icky Goya bean lovers — are called racists, homophobes and xenophobes, all because they dare to dissent from corporate and higher education orthodoxy. Gramps and Grandma have a lot of teaching to do to get those grandkids back into the freedom of expression spirit of the ’60s. Today in the academic and corporate world there is no text, only interpretation; no truth, only subjective feelings. And no room for dissent.

“Democracy dies in darkness,” the Washington Post slogan proclaims. If the Post believes that, they have a task before them: Persuade colleges and universities that their historic mission of free inquiry is being subordinated by sensitive, young Turks at the gate who insist that we all think as they think.

How anti-intellectual is that?

The Great Replacement: Minneapolis

Minneapolis, Minnesota, was almost entirely white until 1980. However, in the last few decades, large numbers of non-whites came to the city, especially immigrants from Somalia. Now, the idyllic city created by settlers and pioneers is a center for black crime and Islamic terrorist recruitment.

The city’s story began when the United States Army built Fort Snelling after the War of 1812 to guard American settlers. The most famous non-white inhabitant of Fort Snelling was Dred Scott, whose efforts to escape slavery led to the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dred Scott v. Sandford. Chief Justice Roger Taney wrote that blacks were not citizens and “are not included, and were not intended to be included, under the world ‘citizens’ in the Constitution, and can therefore claim none of rights and privileges which that instrument provides for and secures to citizens of the United States.”

After more settlers came, several local settlements combined. Adolf Hoeffler, a German who visited the area in 1852, predicted it would eventually become “an extensive manufacturing town, and depot of all the future productions of the extreme Upper Mississippi.” Minneapolis was ideally placed for milling flour, not just manufacturing. Its name means “water city.” From 1870 to 1890, Minneapolis grew from 13,000 people to almost 165,000. Almost everyone was white.

Many city leaders wanted to keep it that way. “Restrictive covenants” to keep neighborhoods white were used from 1910 until 1950. The fascist Silver Legion or “Silver Shirts” had a presence in the city in the 1930s. Blacks were simply not a significant presence in the city for most of its history, so ethnic tension was between Jews and gentiles, not blacks and whites. Some help-wanted ads even said, “Gentile preferred.” Minneapolis was a critical battleground for the Progressive movement. The Minnesota Farmer-Labor Party didn’t unite with the Democrats until 1944, and the quasi-socialist MFLP was able to elect candidates such as Minneapolis mayor Thomas Latimer. Class and ideology — not race — dominated city politics.

Non-whites started coming to the city in large numbers in the 1970s and 1980s. By 1990, the city was more than 20 percent non-white. Some migrants may have been tempted by Minnesota’s generous welfare programs. However, there was also a deliberate effort by churches and refugee settlement organizations to bring them. Corporations also wanted cheap labor, such as the meat packers who hired Somalis.

A graph showing the white population of Minneapolis falling from 99% a century ago to 60% today.

Organizations such as Lutheran Social Services, Catholic Charities, and World Relief Minnesota have worked with the State Department to settle foreign “refugees.” Many such organizations are essentially funded by the federal government, and have a clear financial interest to importing migrants. Without government, there would not be nearly so much resettlement.

In 2004, Minnesota was the number-one destination for foreign refugees on a per-capita basis. The Hmong began arriving in large numbers after the fall of South Vietnam in 1975. Their numbers are a good example of how military intervention brings foreigners. Beginning with 60 “refugees” in 1976, the Twin Cities region (Minneapolis and St. Paul) eventually “attracted the largest Hmong population in the country.” There are now more than 66,000, which means the area is the largest urban Hmong population in the world. Minneapolis now has Hmong gangs, which occasionally re-enact their tribal conflicts on American streets.

Hispanics have also come. The percentage of Hispanics almost quintupled from 1990 to 2010, rising from 2.14 percent to 10.47 percent.

There is a huge Somali population in Minneapolis: over 125,000. One area is called “Little Mogadishu” and is plagued by gangs. An estimated 23 men from the Twin Cities have joined the Islamic terrorist group al-Shabab since 2007. NPR did a series on “The Somali-Minneapolis Terrorist Axis” in 2009, chronicling many cases of Somali “teens” joining militant groups through an underground recruiting network.

The city accommodates Muslims. Somali businesses are permitted to stay open after regular closing hours during Ramadan. During the current pandemic, the Islamic call-to-prayer sounds in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood.

Violent crime is overwhelmingly black, but it sometimes spills out of black areas. In 2019, pipe-wielding Somali “youths” attacked people waiting for public transportation. That same year, black mobs attacked citizens, stealing cell phones and valuables. The police claimed that “race has nothing to do with it.”

The pandemic has not stopped the shootings. Someone killed a black “aspiring musician” outside his home on April 9. Less than two weeks later, someone killed Kevin Beasley, the grandson of “veteran peace and civil rights activist Spike Moss.” Mr. Moss called the deaths of young black men “our epidemic before the epidemic.” Beasley had a criminal record and was shot at a “house party,” though Minnesota has been under a “stay-at-home” order since March 25. Earlier this month, someone shot a city councilman’s car full of holes. Last Monday, there was a “rolling gun battle” between people in two cars, resulting in “grave” injuries for a young woman.

Still, majority white Minneapolis is considered a great city – a “miracle,” according to one Atlantic article in 2015. Success has not spread to non-whites. In a remarkable response to the “miracle” article, “Minneapolis’s White Lie,” The Atlantic’s Jessica Nickrand painstakingly listed the racial disparities in Minneapolis. Rates of poverty and educational failure are so high, she compared Minneapolis to Detroit.

Most of the article sounds like something I would write: She cites Minneapolis’s affordable living cost, robust job market, and good schools, calling it “the American Dream.” Of course, she adds, “60 years ago, so was Detroit.” The Twin Cities’ decline may “just come later” because it’s on the same course.

Agreed.

Her conclusion lost me. “For Minneapolis to remain successful,” she wrote, “the progressive policies of the 1960s and 1970s must evolve to reflect the changing population, prioritizing affordable housing, neighborhood integration, and investment in public education and health services.” That, she says, would be the real “miracle.”

Jessica Nickrand rejects the obvious explanation that Detroit collapsed because whites fled. The same is happening to Minneapolis. The programs Miss Nickrand wants haven’t fixed racial disparities in the past and won’t now. “Little Mogadishu” will just get bigger. The miracle we need is whites recognizing what is happening. If that happens, we can stop subsidizing our dispossession.

Tragedy in Paris

Those of us who have visited Paris are stunned to see this beautiful city now filled with carnage resulting from several terror attacks that have claimed well over 100 lives and seen hundreds injured (dozens seriously). When such horrible tragedies occur, it makes all people think about their own mortality. As Christians, we understand, based on the teaching of Genesis 3 and other passages, that such evil acts are the consequence of the wicked sinful heart of man. When Christians agonize over terrible terrorist attacks, they should realize that evil like this is ultimately a result of our sin of rebellion against our Creator. As we look at the horrific TV images of terrorism, we can’t help but cry out as the Apostle Paul did:

O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? (Romans 7:24).

Our AiG website has articles on why horrible things happen in this world (like 9/11 in America) and why God allows them. You can find them later, but first, you should be praying for the people of France—in fact, the whole world that now fears terrorist attacks from Islamic extremists—that God would touch the hearts of each person affected in some way by the terrorism in Paris and bring them to Himself. We pray for the families of those who lost their lives; only the God of all comfort can truly console those who are in anguish right now. Then also pray that all people will recognize that they need to be ready to meet their Creator, for one day we will all face death.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
Ken

On the “Day of Silence,” the administrators of many middle and high schools went beyond passive tolerance of students silently protesting the bullying of “lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered” youth. Quite a few schools actively advocated for “Day of Silence” goals and messages, permitting students and even teachers to remain silent during class time, permitting the erroneous implication to stand unchallenged, that only full acceptance of “LGBT” behaviors will end specific bullying incidents.

The “Day of Silence”(DOS) was given a place of honor and respect in too many schools, where adults who should have better judgment accepted the DOS mask of “bullying prevention” as the truth. But only a modest amount of research reveals the true objectives of this protest. The DOS koolaid always comes with a bitter pill– swallowing sexual deviance and vomiting out virtue.

What would Jesus have said to those encouraging boys to deny manhood and believe the lie of effemininity? What would He say as girls are pushed toward that glorious day when they are old enough for amputation of healthy breasts and hormones to grow beards? Would the Lord nod in agreement with those who say it’s “hate” to object to such harmful messages?

These are the lessons of the “Day of Silence”(DOS), that criticizing homosexuality or gender confusion is a form of bullying. That not “supporting” students we see traveling tragic roads, but instead warning them will surely cause them to consider self-harm.

Only Satan could write this stuff. The author of confusion has certainly devised a way to enter the public schools and paint faithful Christians as the enemy and advocates of deviance as heroes protecting children.


Meanwhile, Jesus, who so skillfully designed humans as distinctly male and female and commanded that “a man shall leave his father and mother, and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh”(Matthew 19:5) would certainly enter these schools and consider taking out a rope and braiding a whip.

At the name of Christ, Satan will flee, if schools would only call on Him.

Atheists and liberal activist judges have once again teamed up to undermine our Christian heritage, values and philosophies.

This time, their battle took them to Mississippi where the atheist secularists found a judge who had been appointed by President Obama to do their dirty work for them. In 2013 a single student sued the Rankin County School District for violating their First Amendment rights.

The district settled the law suit, acknowledging that they had “violated” that student’s rights, but recently, after a Christian pastor delivered a prayer at an awards ceremony, Judge Carlton Reeves decided to punish the district again, ordering them to pay thousands of dollars in fines.

“Defendants are permanently enjoined from including prayer, religious sermons or activities in any school sponsored event including but not limited to assemblies, graduations, award ceremonies, athletic events and any other school event,” the judge’s order read.

In the face of this scrutiny from an evil and openly hateful magistrate the district decided to root out Christianity from their district, essentially eliminating any possible connection to the Christian faith from their schools. Sure, the vast majority of the students in their district may be practicing Christians, and sure there may have only been one or two complaints over the last decade… but the fascist atheist movement will brook no disobedience from the faithful. They will use every means in their power to enslave the majority with their politically correct anti-God behavior.

(A BJP fundie disrupted a peaceful protest he didn't like by attacking an innocent police horse)

A police horse was allegedly attacked by the BJP’s Mussoorie MLA, Ganesh Joshi, during a protest in Dehradun Monday afternoon. The animal suffered multiple fractures during the incident near the Vidhan Sabha which occurred during a protest called by the BJP against the state government. The injured horse was immediately rushed to the district veterinary officer for treatment.

According to sources, doctors have told the police that the horse’s leg may have to be amputated. Police have also sought opinion from doctors at the Indian Military Academy’s Veterinary Hospital.

Dehradun SSP SR Date said doctors had ruled out early recovery due to multiple fractures in the animal’s rear leg. In the evening, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat visited the city’s reserve police lines to check on the horse’s condition.

Meanwhile, an FIR has been lodged at Nehru Colony police station against the BJP MLA and his unidentified associates. Apart from invoking the Prevention of Animal Cruelty Act, the case was lodged under Section 429 (mischief by killing or maiming cattle, etc., of any value or any animal of the value of fifty rupees) and 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the IPC. No arrests have been made so far.

When contacted, MLA Ganesh Joshi denied the charge and said the state government was trying to shift focus from real issues by falsely implicating him in the case.

“It was a quiet protest, but still mounted police was deployed to create terror. During the protest, a horse hit our party worker, 28-year-old Munni, who suffered an injury on the chest. I snatched a stick from the policeman and tried to stop the animal from attacking others.

Later, I along with other party workers sat on a dharna….While we were sitting on the dharna…we came to know that the rear leg of one of the horse got trapped in the iron-angle on the roadside. While trying to pulled it out, the horse suffered injuries. I did not beat up the horse,” said Joshi.

According to Vinod Singh, the Station Officer of Nehru Colony police station, Joshi and his supporters were seen beating the animal with sticks.
SP (City) Ajay Singh said they had video footage of the incident and action would be taken accordingly. He denied the police had used lathis or horses to disperse the crowd.

Laura Louder & Moira Greyland Peat #fundie survivingtherainbow.com

(Laura’s Preface: I’m honored and grateful to God that I can call Moira my friend. I met her through mutual friends, and we struck up an acquaintance which has grown into an important – for me – friendship. I don’t know many people who manifest the courage and faith this woman has done, although I think it’s a matter of standing up and being strong or go through life being a victim, weak and defeated; this is an option that is simply antithetical to what I know of Moira’s spirit. Both her parents were gay, and quite notorious for it. She suffered terrible abuses from both of them, and now has joined the growing ranks of Children of Gays who are speaking out in prophet voices to tell all the rest of us that, despite the gay-controlled rhetoric, homosexuality is bad for children. She’s generously written this for Surviving the Rainbow, and I hope she’ll be writing more.)

What can the straight spouses of gay parents do to protect their children?

I have been asked to respond to this question, and I admit I am at a loss. This question is not about Spouse A being right and Spouse B being wrong. It is about humanity splitting itself in two, usually for completely stupid reasons, and the devastation it wreaks upon the children.

When a spouse, usually a wife, discovers she is married to a man who has decided to pursue a gay lifestyle, she is already enduring her own heartbreak, shock, and betrayal.

Not only will her children be enduring the likely destruction of their home life, but they will be asked to endure a culture shock which will force them to confront adult questions that no child should be forced to endure.

It is bad enough to know your parent has left your other parent for an ordinary relationship. When your parent abandons his former faith, his wedding vows, and his cultural norms and values, the child is in a position of having to choose, which amounts to choosing one’s left hand or one’s right hand.

Socially, children will generally choose the path which minimizes the negative repercussions. It is understandable both to want to avoid conflict and to want to continue to be a “fan” of the straying parent.

Watching the heartbreak of the abandoned parent is awful, but cannot silence questions about the whole situation. If Mom was abandoned, thinks the child, did she do something wrong? After all, our parents are both right, they have to be, or the entire world is split in two.

Most likely the children will feel forced to choose, even if this choice has nothing whatsoever to do with either objective reality or with their own interest. Male children may choose to side with the father, because it is emotional suicide to reject the primary male figure in their lives, even if he is tarnished beyond belief.

In my own family, my brother chose my father over my mother, which in some ways made sense, because he was kinder and less cruel. In other ways, it made no sense at all, because he brought home a long succession of teen and preteen boys for sex, and he endlessly pressured my brother to have sex with them—and with him.

I also chose my father in some ways, because he was less cruel than my mother. But ultimately, I chose neither one, because neither one chose me.

We learn how to be people from our parents. When our parents choose sexual folly over keeping the home together, children learn that sex is more important than people, and much more important than we are. If our father rejects our mother, we learn that women are unimportant and can be abandoned on a sexual whim. If our mother rejects our father, we learn that men are disposable.

Most catastrophically, if our father decides to “become a woman,” it can provoke terrible anguish in the children. For both girls and boys, their father is literally gone, and “replaced” with a human who is doing disgraceful things for reasons which make no sense to a child. In a boy, it can cause them to fear that their own masculinity can be lost at any moment, and that they might inadvertently be turned into a woman. In a girl, it can make them conclude that no man will ever want them, because if their own father abandoned their mother and turned into a female, it must be because they have failed. Deep down, that failure will always be present, even if unspoken.

In my own family, where my father did not actually choose to “become a woman,” he absolutely refused masculine and feminine gender roles, which left me feeling like I was a nothing, neither male nor female. I was “less than” any boy, because he preferred boys for sex and denigrated girls for “wanting relationships.” If I was a girl. i was “one of them,” those foul creatures rejected by my father. Of course, my attempts to masquerade as a boy were never enough. I became adept at fencing, but any kind of fighting was too stereotypically masculine for my father, so again I had failed.

When a father leaves, either physically leaving the family, or by abandoning his gender for his sexual whims, the sun falls out of the sky for the children. Their very existence as males and females is called into question. Also, the mother is devastated by her own perceived failure and deep, deep grief.

If there is a custody battle, the children are figuratively torn in half for reasons that will never make sense. The wife is likely to be devalued even more in a divorce from a gay man than in an ordinary divorce, partly because of the legal climate, and partly because she will blame herself for failing so deeply as a woman that her man abandoned manhood and straight love altogether rather than remaining with her.

The children will naturally fear being abandoned by a gay spouse in their own future.

The original question was this: is there anything an abandoned wife of a gay man can do to protect her children? The answer is no, and a qualified yes.

We cannot stop the pain. We cannot stop the grief or the feelings of abandonment. We cannot stop the nightmare or the moral outrage. We cannot even stop the gay parent from allowing his new “friends” from terrorizing, molesting, or even raping the children.

In such a situation, what hope can I give?

We can stay aware that our children are hurt, and that their hurt must be handled as more important than our own. It is important as much as possible, to not allow them to see our grief in all of its fullness, not to allow them to think we are forcing them to take sides. Their relationship with their father is about learning their place in the universe, not about us.

What we must do is to remain a safe place. We have to be the one they can express their doubts and fears to. If they have to defend their father, they will be silencing their own agony to do so. This means we must be Switzerland, not taking any side but theirs. If their father commits a bad act, we must listen attentively, and respond from the perspective of helping them, not persecuting their father.

Even if their father is the worst villain imaginable, they will never abandon him. I know this, because my own father is a serial rapist of children, and I am the one who put him in prison for molesting an eleven year old boy in front of me.

I cannot abandon my father, even though he blamed me for his imprisonment, and he most certainly abandoned me. If that is my position as an adult, how likely is it that a child will be able to abandon a father for much smaller crimes?

We abandon our own hearts. We do not abandon our parents. All we can do is teach our children to pay attention to their own discomfort and encourage them to protect themselves against anything which feels wrong. We can also teach them to speak up firmly, even when they are afraid.

In a way, it feels like I am trying to explain to a fish how to be comfortable while being eaten by a shark. My advice might reduce the pain slightly, but we did not cause the injury, and we cannot prevent the pain altogether.

Let them see that you are not rejecting yourselves, nor will you reject them, even if they side with their father. It hurts, it is appalling, but it is unavoidable. Any boy around eight or nine is going to detach from Mother to a large degree and seek out his father as his primary role model. If his father is a horrible role model, telling him that will not alter his need for his father at all.

What you can do is to make sure your sons have better male role models in their lives, whether sports coaches, teachers who will mentor them properly, or relatives they have cause to admire. I did mention not telling them that you are doing this, yes? Just do it, and do not say why. The last thing they need to hear is that you are rejecting their father, because any rejection of him will feel internally like a rejection of them, no matter what you intend it to be.

My own sons identify strongly with their football coaches, thank God.

Above all, let your children know through your own conduct that being normally male and female is good and right, and that they have the right to be themselves, even if some people might want them to change into something else.

I wish I had more comfort to offer you.

All my best to you,
Moira Greyland Peat

Essay:Script of scene 1, The Pedophile Zone TV pilot
From Nathania.org

(Episode begins. It is a sunny day. GERALD, a tidy, young-looking man, with Brylcreemed hair and a well-pressed flannel shirt, walks through the parking lot to his car carrying a paper bag of groceries, with celery and a French baguette sticking out of the top. Everything about him looks very ordinary, conventional, and nondescript, except that something in his eyes reveals that deep within his soul, there is a thought that troubles him. He begins looking through the keys on his chain for the one that will open his car's trunk.)

NARRATOR (in a Rod Serling-esque tone): This is Gerald. A man stuck in another dimension, a parallel universe if you will, between the life most men take for granted, and the death all men are destined for. For you see, by a twist of fate, and a stroke of a lawmaker's pen, Gerald has been forbidden from ever knowing the pleasures of a carnal relationship with a person of his age of attraction. In this state of limbo, crushed as by a mortal and pestle between the strength of his own desires and the disapproval of the society in which he lives, Gerald experiences the heights of desperation alternating with the pit of despair. It is a place we know as ... the Pedophile Zone.

(Dramatic musical flourish ending on an ominous note.)

(LYSANDER walks up, in a tweed suit with a pocket square. Something seems subtly eccentric about his manner and style. When he finally speaks, his tone is Anthony Hopkins-esque.)

LYSANDER (smiling): Hello, Gerald.

GERALD (startled and distracted): Hi. Can I help you with something?

LYSANDER: The question is,
can I help you.

GERALD (As though thinking that maybe LYSANDER is the grocery store manager): Oh, no thanks, I can handle this one bag easily enough...

LYSANDER (pleasantly): Not that it matters. Where you're going, you'll have no need of groceries.

GERALD (stops moving and stares): I beg your pardon?

LYSANDER: Gerald, today's your lucky day. (Casually walks a few steps away, in the direction of the camera, and lights a cigarette as GERALD eyes him suspiciously. For a moment, LYSANDER gazes unsettlingly directly at the camera, with an amused, mischievous, perhaps even slightly crazed glint in his eye, reminiscent of a combination of Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Jack Nicholas, yet slowly giving way to a hint of Gene Wilder, as though he is preparing to unveil a doorway leading beyond this world.) You know, Gerald, I can learn a lot about a man, just by following him, watching him, searching for signs of what lies beneath the seemingly untroubled surface. There are so many little tells that give away the reflections of his mind, the dreams of his heart, the hopes of his spirit, and the musings of his soul... everything from the way he stands there at just under five feet three inches tall, to those nasty scars on the wrist of his right arm...

GERALD (As though taking offense): Now listen mister, if you're gonna get insulting--

LYSANDER (turning sharply toward him, now speaking with a sense of urgency and passion): Gerald, what if I told you that you don't have to suffer anymore? Oh, don't think I don't know, how you while away every, single, miserable, day, rotting there alone like a living corpse, waiting for the end!

(LYSANDER begins slowly crumpling and crushing the empty cigarette pack in his hands, as though channeling Uncle Charlie from the restaurant scene of Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt.) This lousy world is infested by rotten, worthless people whose stupidity blinds them to the hideous depravity of what they do, driving us to the brink with their hysterical and senseless persecutions. Like disgusting maggots, they pollute and ruin a civilization that had so much potential for beauty and happiness. If only we could have exterminated that vile nest of verminous pestilence, we would have done so long ago, but alas, the collective, like a gigantic mutated amoeba from the darkest reaches of hell, has stretched out its slimy pseudopod to engulf us in the worm-ridden parasitic filth, trapping us hopelessly so that we suffer the torment and anguish of knowing we are being slowly consumed. I've had enough, and I suspect that so have you.
Why do I say all this? Because it's my mission in life to help people like you. It's what I was sent into this world to accomplish.

GERALD (stares at him like he's nuts): Sent into this world? You mean, like through some kind of interdimensional portal, like what you see in the science fiction movies?

LYSANDER (considers this): Well, if you consider my mom's vagina an interdimensional portal, yes.

GERALD (suddenly alarmed and suspicious): And what's this talk about watching me? What are you? The FBI?

LYSANDER: (Smiling): Oh no, I'm not here to talk to you about Two-7yo-Boys-Sucking-Off-A-Dog.MP4. I'm not even here to talk to you about Three_2yo_Boys_Get_Deepthroated_and_Fucked_Up_the_Ass.AVI. I'm on your side; as a civil libertarian, I agree that what you watch in your home is your business, which I would never want to intrude upon, other than by surreptitiously climbing a tree across the street and using binoculars to look in your window so I can get turned on and masturbate to your getting turned on and masturbating. (GERALD looks angry and, pointing a finger at LYSANDER, opens his mouth as though to begin complaining.)

LYSANDER (Reproachfully, as though in indignation at being judged): Don't look at me that way! You have your fetishes, and so do I. We both know we would have chosen to be normal if we could have. (More softly, gently, and empathetically now, as though speaking a sad truth) But that's just not the way the fortune cookie crumbled, Gerald. And you know that.
That's why, the other day, you were struggling to climb over the railing of that highway overpass, so you could leap to your death. But because you were too short, you couldn't make it. (GERALD nods sadly, as though thinking back on it.)
That's why you browsed the sporting goods section of Wal-Mart, before ultimately leaving empty-handed in frustration that they didn't have any left-handed shotguns in stock. (GERALD nods again, looking even more dejected now.)
That's why you went down to the railway tracks, but couldn't jump in front of an oncoming train because your non-detached earlobes and misshapen ears kept you from hearing its approach. (GERALD reaches up to feel his deformed ears.)
That's why you sat there for hours trying to figure out how to tie a noose, before finally giving up and lamenting not having been born with a higher IQ. (GERALD looks slightly embarrassed now, and glances around as though to make sure no one is listening.)
That's why you even wrote in your journal about the idea of raping as many small, innocent schoolchildren as possible, before finally deciding against it, partly because the Kennedy v. Louisiana Supreme Court ruling would keep you from qualifying for the death penalty. (GERALD looks at LYSANDER with his mouth agape, as though to ask, how did you know that?)
LYSANDER is speaking now with a sad certainty, while GERALD unwraps and begins chewing a piece of gum, as though trying to calm himself) Gerald, I know everything about you. I know your thoughts, I know your habits, I even know that you hide your spare house key under the third brick from the left in that border separating the azaleas from the fescue in your front lawn. There's nothing I don't understand about your situation.
(Speaking more quickly now) What if said I had a potion? A potion that could make all your problems go away? A potion that could give you what you seek?

GERALD: You mean a potion that's going to magically transport me to a world where adult-child sex is legal?

LYSANDER (considers this): Assuming that the afterlife is such a world, yes -- except that I wouldn't call it magic. Because you see, unlike certain ostensibly teleophilically gay 51-year-old University of Toronto sexology quacks I could mention, I happen to be a man of science. Here's my card.

GERALD (reading from the card): "Lysander, president and executive director, Suicidal Pedophiles." (Tries to hand back the card) It's against the law to commit suicide around here.

LYSANDER (As though recognizing the It's a Wonderful Life reference and playing along with it): Yeah, it's against the law where I come from, too.

GERALD (Leaning forward to spit out the piece of gum): Where do you come from?

LYSANDER: Catlett.

GERALD (Looking confused): Where's that?

LYSANDER (Looking irritated, as though exasperated at how people from northern Virginia always ask him that question): Never mind. I didn't come here to tell you about a sleepy rural community whose whole reason for coming into being was a railroad junction that became obsolete with the widespread introduction of the automobile circa the 1930s. I came here to talk about a different kind of pointless existence -- yours and mine! Don't you long for an end to this grey haze of sexlessness?

GERALD: No... (Stronger now) NO! I don't need your potions, or your secret society... (Rips up the business card, and throws the pieces at LYSANDER, who stands there smiling, as though unperturbed in his confidence that he will eventually win.) I can find my own path to death, in my own time, in my own way! (Throws the groceries in the trunk, reaches to close it)

LYSANDER (Takes a step toward him): Free will is an illusion, Gerald.

GERALD: Get away from me, you ... MONSTER!

LYSANDER: You can't hide from your nature, Gerald. It's inexorable. Like a wandering star that has crossed the event horizon of the black hole at the center of the galaxy, or like the penis of the little boy about to be fellated by his dad in that video you watched yesterday, you will be sucked in. Just like when you hit the play button knowing what is about to transpire on your computer screen, I observe your life too, confident that when the time comes, you will be the one to come to me.

GERALD: I'll... I'll call the police!

LYSANDER (Sadly, as though about to remind GERALD of an unfortunate reality): Why call, Gerald? Why not just mention to the officer that some scary man is harassing you, the next time you go down to the station on the first of the month to get your photo and fingerprints taken? And Gerald, try to smile for the camera next time; you look so morose in that picture they have on the website right now. One would think that your puppy just died. You give pedophiles a bad name by making us seem clinically depressed, when there's no reason to feel down, given that the means of our self-destruction is so close and readily at hand.

GERALD: ENOUGH! (Slams the trunk down and runs for the car door)

LYSANDER: So long, Gerald. (GERALD opens the car door) And Gerald? ... (GERALD looks back at him, terrified. LYSANDER smiles pleasantly.) I'll be seeing you.
(Dramatic musical flourish, as the screen rapidly fades to black. Cut to commercial.)

"Royalty, Rumors and Racists"

BY STEPHEN A. COSTON, SR.

AUTHOR OF THE NEW BOOK:

KING JAMES
The VI Of Scotland & I Of England
Unjustly Accused?

The character assassination of His Majesty King James VI & I is an ongoing evolving process that has matured in this present day to a sort of "open season" of differing opinions variously setting forth different theories and hypotheses on the whys, hows, and ifs of the alleged "homosexuality" of King James VI & I. Part of the reason for so many differing opinions is that many historians and would-be historians have forsaken fact for fictional accounts on the life of King James VI & I. Without facts to restrain the imagination the investigative process turns into a rumor mill and as such is an aberration of the historical process. Often these highly speculative accounts, contemporary or modern, are based not on the actual life and words of King James VI & I but on what these individuals THINK what King James VI & I said and did meant. Honest professional historians are beginning to admit this and this is most welcome; however, King James VI & I still has his ardent critics.

More often than not even when actual facts of King James VI & I are presented they are subjected to interpretive twists designed to give the reader the impression that the words and deeds of King James VI & I support the allegations commonly leveled against him. Case in point, it is a known fact King James VI & I was handicapped from birth with weak limbs and injured himself many times. This caused him to have an unsteady gait. To compensate for this King James VI & I often leaned on his most trusted councilors and friends which also happened to be members of his personal staff, individuals critics freely term "favorites." It is often stated that "James was fond of leaning all over his beautiful young favorites" giving the reader the impression King James VI & I did so not because of a physical handicap but because of sexual attraction to same. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Further, it is also freely alleged that King James VI & I "passionately kissed" his "favorites" in public.

Critics of King James VI & I are fond of inferring from the above that King James VI & I engaged in the "French kissing" of his "favorites." They then use this assumption as yet another "proof" to support their contention that King James VI & I was indeed truly a "homosexual."

What the detractors of King James VI & I utterly fail to realize; however, (to their detriment) is the fact that the accounts responsible for popularizing this characterization were penned by individuals who hated not only King James VI & I as a Scot, but the whole country of Scotland as well. They were some of the most militant racists of the time of the most vicious type. Some of their contemporaries knew this and railed against them and defended King James VI & I and it is quite the mystery why modern critics seem not to know this.

Another point that critics of King James VI & I fail to recognize relative to this issue of kissing is that King James VI & I "slobbered" when he ate his food, consumed his drink, or even when he "kissed" someone's hand or cheek. Are we to infer then that King James VI & I passionately kissed inanimate objects, foods and drinks and bodily extremities? What about the widely accepted practice of a monarch's kiss at court to show the King's favor upon an individual? Besides that what of the British acceptance of public kissing for all kinds of events and circumstances. Are we then to infer that the whole island of Great Britain was a hot bed of homosexuality?

It is also inferred that because some individuals rejoiced to have King James VI & I's "legs soon in their arms" upon their return to court that this is somehow indicative of a reference to a sexual position. However, there exist many woodcuts depicting just this position of many noble and common men in with King James VI & I at court. It was customary to prostrate oneself at the feet of the monarch when allowed so close to His Majesty's person to receive a welcome, greeting or honor. King James VI & I's own son, the future King Charles I, himself was in just this position at the feet of his father when he returned from Spain. It is amazing that such shallow reasoning can be allowed to be pawned off as legitimate historical analysis.

Finally, much is made of King James VI & I articulating in his writing that he "loved" someone of the same gender giving the reader the mistaken belief that "love" stood for a sexual attraction and thus yet another "proof" of the "homosexuality" of King James VI & I. Also, it is alleged that King James VI & I "justified homosexuality many times" in his writings.

The most common offered "proof" of this mistaken assertion is a quotation from King James VI & I's speech to Parliament which is violently ripped from its intended meaning and context. For an in- depth refutation of this form of argument the diligent reader is referred to my book King James VI Of Scotland & I Of England - Unjustly Accused.

The Reverend Barrie Williams sums up the desperation of this reasoning:

"... there must be many besides myself for whom nine short words of the King are sufficient: 'Jesus had His John, and I have my George.' King James was in every estimate a devout protestant, and anyone who can believe that he would cast aspersions on the moral integrity of Our Saviour would have no difficulty in believing that the world is flat."

The sheer etymological ignorance of this type of argument is astounding! In my book King James VI Of Scotland & I Of England - Unjustly Accused I examine the widespread and commonly accepted practice of men and women writing to each other in loving terms and expressing their "love" for one another. Such Jacobean stylistic expressions of this kind were in no way indicative of sexual attraction or homosexuality.

I believe Lucius Annaeus Seneca said it best when he wrote:

"... they refute their case by means of the very passages which lead them to infer it."

Certain revisionist historians would have you believe otherwise and advocate the use this method to prove Biblical characters were likewise "homosexuals" to include Jesus Christ, David and Jonathan. These types of evidences, if you can call them that, are the types of things that critics of King James VI & I use to validate their claims. When they can't force King James VI & I to say what they want they simply make him "mean" what they want. Or, in other words, what they can't find stated they simply infer is there and place between the lines even though it is not "in the lines." However, if King James VI & I did not mean what he wrote then who is anyone to tell us what he actually meant?

As far as "witnesses" go, critics can only cite a handful of contemporaries of King James VI & I and most of these were men fired from office (sour grapes), or were political or religious enemies of the King, or they were otherwise disgruntled courtiers with an ax to grind and none ever were eye witness to any overt sexual acts on the part of King James VI & I.

Not only this but I have not found one yet that ever formally accused King James VI & I of directly being a homosexual and brought his case before any legal or religious body not to mention attempting to obey the precepts of Scripture in making such outlandish claims. For an in- depth examination of the charges commonly leveled at King James VI & I the careful reader is referred to my book mentioned previously.

It is obvious that myriad are the claims leveled at James Charles Stuart's (King James VI & I) moral character or lack thereof. However, out of this great sea of negative opinion the tide is fortunately turning away from the shores of libel and gossip and heading towards the calm home port of objectivity and evidentiary concerns.

Historians like the rest of our society are not immune from the influences of modern faddish trends and regrettably King James VI & I has suffered more than his share of diatribes that are directly due to a falling away from classical objective interpretive methods that were long indicative of the traditional historical method. Recent trends have captivated modern historians and led them to experiment with eisegetical techniques and to put it colloquially "tabloid style journalism." Therefore, much that has been written regarding His Majesty King James VI & I has not been the result of a balanced exegetical method.

Further complicating the situation and making matters worse has been the regrettable over reliance by historians on certain scurrilous sources that were produced in an era when libels of the Stuarts and the Monarchy were at a premium in general and whose opinions were motivated by a distrust and outright hostility to the noble Scots as a nation and King James VI & I in particular. King James VI & I being the first Scot to sit on the English throne and the natural father of the last Stuart King to reign in England before the regicide of The Royal Martyr, King Charles I, King James VI & I was naturally a prime target for abuse.

Making an easy target for his pursuit of peace and his many physical handicaps, King James VI & I was and is ill treated by many who venture to put pen to paper with a view to ruminating on the character of this much misunderstood Monarch. Like all of us in the course of King James VI & I's life he made enemies, and as king he had more than his share. Not only this but King James VI & I had to deal and overcome outright racism against his home of birth, Scotland. It is a sad fact that most of King James VI & I's contemporary critics were either disgruntled courtiers who were removed from office by King James VI & I himself or otherwise suffered loss of political or peerage advancement under King James VI & I or were haters of the whole Scottish nation!

Much indeed has been written on King James VI & I and because of this plethora of information a few researchers when doing analysis on King James VI & I simply refer back to past popular and easily obtainable sources rather than expending time and effort in obtaining rare and difficult to find first hand accounts of either the critical or ameliorative sources. Most indeed who have written about King James VI & I have never actually sat down to read what he actually wrote. This environment has created a prime climate for the kind of slanders and libels King James VI & I has been subjected to.

In my years of research on the life and character of King James VI & I, I have found that there is a great reluctance on the part of some of the more militant and bellicose of modern day critics of King James VI & I who claim to have facts to prove (beyond what they assert in their books) King James VI & I was a homosexual.

They seem unwilling to stand up to investigative criticism of their conclusions. They speak of research but balk at detailing the fruits thereof. They are fond of citing whole volumes of books and articles which they claim validate their assertions but refuse to justify any conclusions or data found therein. Some of the more extreme "Christian" critics of King James VI & I are extremely reticent about applying Biblical injunctions against gossip and rumor to their sources or even allow King James VI & I the protection of Scripture as found in Deut. 19:15 or I Tim. 5:19. Further, some are found to deny King James VI & I even professed to be a Christian! I find this extremely curious that such individuals who claim to be "Christians" would ignore Biblical injunctions on falsely accusing a brother and the evidentiary requirements to sustain charges of the type they advocate.

Thankfully, modern secular critical opinion on King James VI & I is reevaluating the negative assertions of his moral character and moderate critics of King James VI & I are now admitting that these charges are basically OPINION not historical facts! As noted above, only a few extremist and militant and the most ardent of King James VI & I's critics are espousing some of the most vociferous and invectively rancorous libels of King James VI & I.

I have also found in the course of my research a most curious phenomenon, that there is almost a total vacuum of consideration of what King James VI & I actually wrote or what he believed outside of a few brief excerpts of his writings which are more often than not stripped from their context or misinterpreted almost beyond recognition. Great weight almost to the point of complete dependence is attached to the writings of a few disgruntled courtiers, racists and bigots (Sir Anthony Weldon, Francis Osborne and Sir Edward Peyton and a few others).

The writings of Peter Heylyn, Sir William Sanderson, Bishop Godfrey Goodman and Anthony A. Wood and others (not to mention King James VI & I himself) are almost totally forsaken thus creating an unbalanced view of King James VI & I as viewed from contemporary accounts. Similarly, most modern works which discount the critical view of King James VI & I are also almost completely ignored by those who wish to paint King James VI & I as a homosexual.

When authors are unduly influenced by the scandal value of such poor sources they tend to rely on them in extreme and thus forsake detailed historical research and ignore the principles of evidentiary preponderance of evidence and thus sacrifice this for the propensity of our frail human nature in its attraction for dirt and scandal. Contradictory applications of principles and imbalanced research techniques can only result from a defective research method. Unfortunately this type of phenomenon has run rampant and caused many such evaluations to run amuck of the facts concerning King James VI & I.

I have not found any persons yet who libel King James VI & I as being a homosexual who are willing to allow themselves to be judged based on the same lines of evidence and principles upon which they unjustly convict King James VI & I .

All these factors coupled with the cultural and etymological ignorance prevailing in our day and the outright historical bias of some against King James VI & I have produced a situation where King James VI & I's accusers have played free with the actual historical facts and in some cases invented more ingenious eisegetical interpretations than any stretching of the imagination could ever produce. Thus the facts of history have been traded for the inventions of the imagination and regrettably there has of yet been no limitation to the unbridled attacks on the ever blessed memory and reputation of His Majesty, King James VI & I. When such pseudo-history is accepted for the real thing and we refuse to be bound to actual historical facts and opinions are masqueraded in place of reality then no valid conclusions can ever be reached.

In my attempts to request evidence that is commonly purported to exist by the sternest critics of King James VI & I sadly I have found that this evidence is often elusive and at best highly speculative. Instead what I have been offered in place of hard data from King James VI & I's militant and extremist critics is sarcasm, evasion, ridicule, rudeness and outright refusal to provide the requested information.

From King James VI & I's more mild critics they are at least recognizing the fact that their opinions have led to incorrect assumptions that accusations of homosexuality leveled at King James VI & I are factual, which they are not, and are based on speculation and opinion. Many are even willing to entertain the belief that King James VI & I might not have been homosexual at all. This is something that King James VI & I's hard line critics have yet to do and seem dead set against.

The personal slanders and racially motivated innuendoes and epithets were indicative more of the declarant's anti-Scottish bias and resultant dislike of King James VI & I than they were etiologically the result of actual facts. Thus, the scandalous artifacts which have been so carefully exhumed setting forth the "dirt" of the matter are in need not of study but of burial. These slurs are only allegorically and vaguely implying misdeeds on the part of King James VI & I in the most indirect manner and should be highly suspect. Often by their own account imagination played a key role in their assertions and this was based on their own particular interpretation (not provable facts) of the actions of King James VI & I. It is highly coincidental that the promoters of the charges were those who either bore no good will to the Scots or otherwise had a grudge to bear against their King. So, like irreverent grave robbers having no respect for the dead they attempt to steal that which does not belong to them and not content with desecrating the memory and honor of King James VI & I they also trample under foot his blessed memory. This ought not be so!

There seems to be a divergence of opinion amongst King James VI & I's critics. This is indicative of the fact that modern attitudes on King James VI & I are changing and the hard liners are refusing to budge. So far factual rebuttals of the hard line opponents of King James VI & I have had little effect as the pugnacious critics are refusing to yield to the actual evidence and are holding on to the rumors of the past. Such is the decline and decay of our society when we will allow the least of us, those who cannot defend themselves, to be thrown to the wolves if you will and be unjustly accused. In our passive acceptance of this injustice I see the fate of us all in that one day we may all find ourselves the target of false accusers. Where have moral and historical ethics gone!

The sheer bankruptcy of the critical case should be evident to any sincere lover of history. To those who will convict King James VI & I on the scantiest of evidence it must be seen that these individuals will thus embody the demise of all true history. The plethora of moral indictments and claims against King James VI & I's character are not historical facts but rather in all actuality primarily unjust criticisms which are commonly mistaken for facts.

Serious dialogue seems to have been relegated to the museum of ancient history and fallen into disuse. However, the criticisms of King James VI & I actually reveal more about our society's preoccupation with scandal and dirt than they do about the life and character of King James VI & I . We can no longer allow lopsided research to overpower the facts of history.

The best advise and observation on this sad situation ironically comes from King James VI & I himself. As His Majesty King James VI & I noted almost prophetically long ago:

"And principally exercise true wisdom in discerning wisely between true and false reports. First concerning the nature of the person reporter; next, what effect he can have in the well or evil of him whom of he maketh the report; thirdly, the likelihood of the purpose itself, and the last the nature and past life of the delated person ... "

And:

"They quarrel me (not for any evil or vice in me) but because I was a king, which they thought the highest evil, and because they were ashamed to profess this quarrel they were busy to look narrowly in all my actions, and I warrant you a moat in my eye, yes a false report was matter enough for them to work upon."

"A small town Mississippi High School has decided to cancel its school prom after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) demanded the school permit a female student to wear a tux to the prom and attend with her lesbian partner. Now the ACLU is suing the school, asking the courts to force the Itawamba County School District to hold the prom and permit 18-year-old Constance McMillen to attend with her lesbian partner and to cross-dress."

Only if the parents of the homosexuals agree to pay all the property taxes and expenses of the school district from now on. Otherwise, the parents of the other students, and the board they elected, are in charge.

Should the school allow kids to bring, lets say, sex animals to the prom, too? What if a student is doing his dog?
How about blow up dolls or vibrators? Whips and chains? Why stop at one kink? Why not bring it all in and keep it fair?

Where do normal people draw the line? Why corrupt our entire culture because of a few dysfunctional freaks?

Twelve reasons not to see Harry Potter Movies

1. God shows us that witchcraft, sorcery, spells, divination and magic are evil. He hates those practices because they blind us to His loving ways, then turn our hearts to a deceptive quest for self-empowerment and deadly thrills. Harry Potter's world may be fictional, but the timeless pagan practices it promotes are real and deadly. Well aware that the final result is spiritual bondage and oppression, He warns us:

"There shall not be found among you anyone who... practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord..." Deuteronomy 18:9-12

2. The movie's foundation in fantasy, not reality, doesn't diminish its power to change beliefs and values. Imaginary (or virtual) experiences and well-written fantasies can affect the mind and memories as much, if not more, than actual experiences.[3] Designed to stir feelings and produce strong emotional responses, a well-planned myth with likeable characters can be far more memorable than the less exciting daily reality -- especially when reinforced through books, toys and games as well as movies. Small wonder Harry's fans have been counting the days until their next fantastic journey into Hogwarts' classes on sorcery, divination, potions and spells.

"But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward." Jeremiah 7:24
3. Each occult image and suggestion prompts the audience to feel more at home in this setting. Children identify with their favorite characters and learn to see wizards and witches from a popular peer perspective rather than from God's perspective. Those who sense that the occult world is evil face a choice: Resist peer pressure or rationalize their imagined participation in Harry's supernatural adventures.
The second choice may quiet the nagging doubts, but rationalizing evil and justifying sin will sear the conscience and shift the child's perception of values from God's perspective to a more "comfortable" cultural adaptation. Even Christian children can easily learn to conform truth to multicultural ideals and turn God's values upside down - just as did God's people in Old Testament days:
"But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward." Jeremiah 7:24
"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness....
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!" Isaiah 5:2-21

Harry Potter Special [Magazine] interviews actors Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), Rupert Grint (Ron), Tom Felton (Draco), Harry Melling (Dudley):
If you could cast a spell on someone, what would it be?
Daniel: "If I liked them, it would be a spell where I'd give them special power, like invisibility.
Your favorite word in the Harry Potter books?
Daniel: "I like the word--it's very bad to say this--but I like the word Voldemort."
What magical power would you like to have?
Rupert: "I'd like to levitate."
Do you prefer to play a bad or good character?
Tom: "Bad. It's more fun because it is different.
What magical power would you want to have?
Tom: "Invisibility. So I could sneak around and go places I shouldn't."
Did you find it hard torturing Harry?
Harry M: "No. I found it quite fun, actually."[4]

4. God tells us to "abhor what is evil" and "cling to what is good." (Romans 12:9) But when Christian children and teens love the Harry Potter myths, delight in the movie and read the books again and again, they are desensitizing their hearts and minds to its evil. Turning God's truth upside down, they are learning to "love" what is evil. The natural next step is to reject God's wise boundaries and "abhor" what He calls good.

"You love evil more than good...." Psalm 52:3

5. Immersed in Hogwarts' beliefs and values, children learn to ignore or reinterpret God's truth. They lose their natural aversion for the devious spirits represented by the creatures and symbols in this eerie world. Caught up in the exciting story, they absorb the suggested values and store the fascinating images in their minds -- making the forbidden world of the occult seem more normal than the Kingdom of God.

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ." Colossians 2:6-9

6. This inner change is usually unconscious, for the occult lessons and impressions tend to bypass rational scrutiny. After all, who will stop, think and weigh the evidence when caught up in such a fast-moving visual adventure? Fun fantasies and strategic entertainment has a special way of altering values, compromising beliefs and changing behavior in adults as well as in children. This learning process has been named "edutainment" -- a favored way to train multicultural citizens for the envisioned 21st century community. Its power to influence beliefs and behavior is illustrated by today's marketing firms which spend billions on entertaining ads that touch emotions, ignore the facts, yet motivate people to buy the product.

"Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, and revive me in Your way." Psalm 119:37

7. The main product marketed through this movie is a new belief system. This pagan ideology comes complete with trading cards, computer and other wizardly games, clothes and decorations stamped with HP symbols, action figures and cuddly dolls and audio cassettes that could keep the child's minds focused on the occult all day and into night. But in God's eyes, such paraphernalia become little more than lures and doorways to deeper involvement with the occult. In contrast, He calls a person "blessed" who -

"walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor stands in the path of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of the scornful [mockers];
"But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. Whatever he does shall prosper." Psalm 1:1-3
It might be hard to escape the symbols that remind people of Harry. His words and phrases help fuel today's cultural transformation:
The mainstream media uses the word "muggles" to deride those who don't want children to read Harry Potter books.

"A columnist from the Chicago Daily Herald used Harry-Speak.... He said that a particular NBC Olympics commentator was the 'dementor of the sports commentators.'"

"Coeur d'Alene, Idaho is going to name this year's snowstorms after the Harry Potter characters. The first blizzard of the year will be called Albus...."[4]

8. The implied source of power behind Harry's magical feats tend to distort a child's understanding of God. In the movie as in the books, words traditionally used to refer to occult practices become so familiar that children begin to apply the same terms to God and His promised strength. Many learn to see God as a power source that can be manipulated with the right kind of prayers and rituals -- and view his miracles as just another form of magic. They base their understanding of God on their own feelings and wants, not on His revelation of Himself.

"You thought that I was altogether like you; but I will rebuke you...." Psalm 50:21

9. Blind to the true nature of God, children will blend (synthesize) Biblical truth with pagan beliefs and magical practices. In the end, you distort and destroy any remnant of true Christian faith. For our God cannot be molded to match pagan gods.

“For My people have committed two evils:
They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters,
And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water." Jeremiah 2:1

10. God tells us to "train up a child in the way He should go." It starts with teaching them God's truths and training them all day long to see reality from His, not the world's perspective. To succeed, we need to shield them from contrary values until they know His Word and have memorized enough Scriptures to be able to recognize and resist deception. Once they have learned to love what God loves and see from His perspective, they will demonstrate their wisdom by choosing to say "no" to Harry Potter.

“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up." Deuteronomy 6:6-7

11. While some argue that Harry and his friends model friendship and integrity, they actually model how to lie and steal and get away with it. Their examples only add to the cultural relativism embraced by most children today who are honest when it doesn't cost anything, but who lie and cheat when it serves their purpose.

"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased [depraved] mind, to do those things which are not fitting.... They are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them." Romans 1:28-32

12. God has a better way. When His children choose to follow His ways, He gives them a heart to love Him, spiritual eyes that can understand and delight in His Word, a sense of His presence and a confidence in His constant care -- no matter what happens around us. Harry Potter's deceptive thrills are worse than worthless when compared to the wonderful riches our Shepherd promises those who will ignore evil and walk with Him.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things." Philippians 4:6-8

Crazy machete-wielding protester #fundie kentucky.com

A man with a machete who attacked a Transylvania University student in a campus coffee shop Friday first asked people about their political affiliations, a witness said.

The assailant, thought to be a former student, was armed with a machete and knives, Lexington Police Chief Mark Barnard said. The university canceled classes for the rest of the day.

The victim was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening, fire department Battalion Chief Joe Best said.

The victim was safe, and her family “is with her at UK Hospital,” Transylvania President Seamus Carey said.

The assailant also was taken to a hospital to be evaluated, Barnard said. A third person was treated at the scene.

Tristan Reynolds, a student who was inside the campus café where the attack occurred, said about 30 to 40 people were inside at the time.

“A guy came in, banged something, a hatchet or an ax, on the table and said ‘the day of reckoning has come,’” Reynolds said. “He asked somebody what their political affiliation was, they said ‘Republican’ and the guy said ‘you are safe.’ And then I realized what was going on and started getting people out.”

“We started to scatter and then very, very quickly, campus security was getting everybody sheltered and secure,” Reynolds said. “They were very on it.”

Campus security officers subdued the assailant quickly, preventing further injury, Barnard said.

Security officers tackled the suspect, Transylvania spokeswoman Michele Gaither Sparks said.

Students were alerted about the attack by text messages through the campus’ T-Alert system, Sparks said.

The coffee shop, inside the Glenn Building, has an open floor plan and is a popular spot for students to get coffee and breakfast, Reynolds said.

He is the editor-in-chief of the Transylvania student newspaper, The Rambler, and he was with newspaper staff at the café.

Can anyone name a female politician who has actually accomplished anything of worth for traditionalists in the last 50 years?

Asking for a friend.

It’s 2018, the so-called “Year of the Woman,” and while the Left is pushing their vagina privilege with reckless abandon, the faux Right is trying to keep pace by dumping feminists onto their voter base with impunity.

The question any half-witted conservative/traditionalist should ask himself before pulling a lever this November is, are these women part of the solution or just more of the problem?

Even if we exclude the non-white “conservative” female pols that the GOP has forced on us, such as Condoleeza Rice and Nimrata Randhawa (aka Nikki Haley), they’ve convinced us over the past half-century to gush over white “conservative” female politicians such as Elizabeth Dole, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Carly Fiorina, Liz Cheney, and Pam Bondi.

I have previously written about the influx of pretty blonde conservatives into American politics that picked up speed in the early 2000s during the George W. Bush administration and the early years of Fox News. Today, any media outlet that is slightly to the right of center has more than its share of pretty “conservative” faces telling their mostly-male audiences what to believe and how to live.

The Alt Right/Alt Lite has had its own slate of female media celebrities since 2015. Now one of them, Faith Goldy, is running for mayor of Toronto.

This relevant observation by Brandon Martinez poses a good question.

Women like Goldy, Lauren Southern and others are little more than fame-hungry opportunists who saw a growing niche market with the alt-light, alt-right and pro-Trump movements. They’re simply capitalizing on these sentiments in order to make money and get men to gawk at them on YouTube. That’s just what women do, always on the hunt for opportunities to increase their profile and status. And stupid men give it to them. Why do we need bimbo broads like these to become leading voices for nationalism when all they do is sell us half-truths and dumb cuckservative talking points that half-witted male alt-lighters like Cernovich, Yiannopoulos and Watson have been expressing more intelligently?

If we look at female candidates like Goldy and ask, “Will she support those policies I believe in, more than the other candidates?” we might well find ourselves answering in the affirmative. If it’s a simple lesser of two evils choice, sometimes the “conservative” female is less evil.

However, if the question is, “Is this female candidate part of the solution or just more of the problem?” then the answer is simple.

In a sane world there would be no need for these ladies to take up the political battle ax. In a sane world, there would be plenty of men to do the job and those ladies would be willing to let the men do it.

In our world, the presence of these women in leadership positions may be partly due to the absence of men willing to step up and lead. However, I place greater blame on the ideological force of egalitarianism vis-à-vis feminism for keeping those men in their homes and pushing those women out of their homes.

It’s not as if for centuries there were chronic shortages of men to do the work of governance. That is, not until feminism convinced women to shove their way into governance, and shamed men into giving up their positions of governance. That includes more than serving in elected offices. The basic tool of civic governance is the right to vote. By giving women the vote, men abdicated half their power to govern their society. Eve had suddenly become independent of, and equal to, Adam. Goodbye traditional America, hello clown world.

Today men on the Left believe it is morally virtuous to elect women instead of men. Men on the faux Right are just a few years away from adopting that same moral view, just as they adopted the once-radical Leftist notion that electing non-whites instead of whites is the morally virtuous thing to do. See the presidential candidacies of Alan Keyes and Ben Carson for reference.

The solution is not to elect “conservative” women or non-whites. The solution is for white men to lead in every part of our society. And where right-minded white men are lacking, you dear reader, can be the solution. Remember Gideon.

The best politically-active women have been those who championed traditional gender roles and nationalism, such as Phyllis Schlafly and Ann Coulter. But even they have not been the shining lights of our people. They themselves would tell you that white men have fulfilled that role.

So this November, electing the “conservative” white female candidate is not the answer. The answer might take a little longer to see in positions of leadership, but the answer is obvious. And it wears pants.

Joseph Dias, Catholic Secular Forum #fundie archive.is

(Poster's note: The page is archived with archive.is, but is more detailed than anything else I could quickly find on the subject. Yes, I know it's 13 years old.)

Nyay Bhushan of MonstersAndCritics.com has issued the following report:

Mumbai-based EMI Virgin India Ltd. said Friday (Oct. 6) it will recall all copies of the new SLAYER album "Christ Illusion" following protests by a Christian group, Mumbai-based Catholic Secular Forum (CSF).

Early this week, Joseph Dias, general secretary of CSF, issued a statement taking "strong exception" to the album`s cover artwork, which he said depicts "Christ with a missing eye and amputated arms." He added, "we also condemn the track, 'Skeleton Christ' as the lyrics are an insult to Christianity." The CSF also sent a memorandum to Mumbai's police commissioner, adding that the album "will affect the sensibilities of the Muslims on the track 'Jihad' and secular Indians who have respect for all faiths."

Kaveri Khullar, marketing manager, EMI India said in an interview, "We met with the CSF and were apologetic while assuring them that all copies of the album would be pulled out. We have no plans of re-issuing it in any way."

The "Christ Illusion" album had been on the shelves for only a week. Khullar did not confirm the number of units released only stating, "There weren't too many that we launched anyway."

The CSF had earlier protested against the Indian release of "The Da Vinci Code" which led the Censor Board to instruct the India distributor, Mumbai-based Sony Pictures Releasing India, to include a notice to accompany the film to explain that it was a work of fiction.

My encounters with God healed me from Asthma, Allergies, illnesses, sickness, and so many other things. I was healed instantly. There is no cure for Asthma, or allergies. So, I said God if you don't heal me from this then I will die with this illness in my body, and I was healed. But how does that prove anything to you, that was my encounter?

I have seen God grow limbs out for people that was impossible, people that did not have arms or legs, but I saw that not you. How would someone explain that? So, I believe in God by Faith and also God has allowed me to see things that are not possible for humans to do on their own. So that is my proof for myself.

God has shown me so much for me to not believe in Him. HOw do people grow arms and legs out that were blown off or torn off, only God can do that? Yes people can have surgery, but to see an arm grow in front your eyes, is amazing.

An elementary school in -- where else -- Massachusetts, sent a letter to parents in August 2008 informing them that "Our night custodian has informed us of his decision to change his gender and, as we begin the school year, he will begin living and working as a woman."

Superintendent Ernest Boss and Principal Norman Yvon further stated that "if [students] ask at school, they will be given a simple and straightforward answer. The best thing to tell them is that our custodian used to be a man. She has changed her gender role and is now a woman."

So now this one man's psychologically and morally disordered desire to live publicly as a woman and the school administration's complicity in facilitating his disorder exposes an entire school full of children to ideas and images to which no elementary child should be exposed and forces parents to explain what no parent should have to explain to 5-10 year-olds.

No government employee should be permitted to tell other people's children that this man "used to be a man... and is now a woman." That statement is not factual and not true. It is false, controversial, unproven, values-laden, and faith-based. The belief that amputating healthy parts of one's sexual anatomy and taking hormones appropriate to the opposite sex changes one's sex constitutes a pernicious delusion or fiction. No government employee should be permitted to make such statements to children.

THE ATHEIST'S COMPLAINT:
How did Judas die? Did he hang himself (Matthew 27:5) or did he fall, his midsection bursting open (Acts 1:18)?

Is there a contradiction?

RESPONSE:
The questioner assumes that there is a contradiction because Matthew and Luke record different facts about Judas' death. He hanged himself (as Matthew reveals), but it seems that either the limb upon which he hung, or the rope with which he hung himself broke, causing Judas to fall forward, resulting in a deep laceration in his stomach, so deep that his intestines gushed out.

Whether this indeed is exactly what happened, I am unsure. However, it is a possible and probable explanation.

There is no contradiction.

Well, New Orleans is voting on a new mayor--thank God! High time for them to throw the libbie scum responsible for the destruction of that great city right out! Of course nutty Nagin is being backed by blacks, they still haven't gotten out of the matrix that is the dirty DemocRATic Party yet. Those people need to wake up and come back to the fold of true Americanism again. It's sad and sick. Seems that all it takes is some multicultural-promoting, welfare loving, feminazi anti-patriot from the traditional Party of treason, atheism, and segregation to sucker these minorities back in and chain them to the posts under the "big tent" of the dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb DummycRATs! Those brainwashing oppressors are criminals, and one of these days I fully expect blacks and the rest to wake up and tear their modern masters limb from limb in a way that will make the slave revolts of the 19th century look tame! And on that day, the DemocRATic daemons are dead since everyone knows they are only able to win razor thin elections by playing the race card in major cities. This means they'll be as screwed as the slavemasters who also depended upon blacks to keep them in the upper tier's of social power--and then we can finally say goodbye to the foul, elitist, East Coast libbie establishment that has done nothing but give us the likes of the Communist Clinton family and KKKerrys. Anyway, I can't wait to until this mass murderer, this butcher of New Orleans, who sat on his ass while his own people suffered, who did nothing but bash our President, is G-O-N-E!

Brunei bans Christmas: Sultan warns those celebrating could face up to five years in jail

Anyone found illegally celebrating Christmas in Brunei could face up to five years in prison, according to a reported declaration by the Sultan of the tiny oil-rich state.

Brunei introduced its ban on Christmas last year over fears that celebrating it "excessively and openly" could lead its Muslim population astray.

Christians and others can celebrate Christmas, but must do so in private and have to first alert the authorities.


Local Islamic religious leaders have promoted the ban, warning that adopting the trappings of Christmas is tantamount to imitation of another faith, prohibited in some interpretations of Islam.

Officials from the Ministry of Religious Affairs have also reportedly visited local businesses to ensure they are not displaying Christmas decorations, including Santa hats and banners with Christmas greetings.

Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, who has ruled the former British colony for nearly 50 years, introduced the ban on Christmas in 2014, the same year Brunei adopted a stricter penal code, based on Islamic sharia and including punishments such as stoning and amputation.

The Christmas ban is justified under the new laws - the punishment for celebrating Christmas is a fine of $20,000 or up to five years in prison, or both.

The ban has encountered some resistance - the social media campaign #MyTreedom, which encourages Christians and other in countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran to post images of themselves celebrating Christmas, includes several contributions from Brunei residents.

At least 65 per cent of Brunei's 420,000-strong population are Muslims.

Yeah, you’re a man. Even if you were “passing” you’ll always be a man.

You just have a sissy fetish. Stop watching porn.

I don't watch porn.

What do you want a cure for? Autogynephilia? I don’t know you or your thoughts, but how do you ‘feel’ like a woman? Is it just that you have a more typically feminine personality? There’s nothing wrong with that. It doesn’t make you a woman. Being a woman or being a man is entirely biological and based on anatomy not your personality or interests or any trivial bullshit.

I don't get sexually aroused when I think of myself as a woman. I actually have a lot of masculine traits and hobbies and can only get off by being very dominant.

But still, in my head I've always seen myself as a woman, even when I was a child. It doesn't feel right when people call me a man because it's so ingrained into my head that I am a woman. I know it's a mental illness, but the only treatments professionals and others seem to offer are hormones and surgery. If it were as simple as becoming comfortable as a man I wouldn't be in this situation.

Hormones and surgery are irreversible and they do not ever relieve you of the mental anguish that you feel. It leaves you deformed, infertile, mutilated, suicidal and still empty inside. Trannies are chasing a high that they will never reach. The scientific community does not even know the long term health effects of taking hormones, yet. It’s dangerous.

You just sound confused to me. I think you are rewriting history and twisting innocent events in your childhood to paint a narrative that you always felt this way.

Did you have a father that was active in your life? I have read that young boys develop attachments to their mothers and can not see themselves as individuals just extensions of their mother unless they have a father or male authority to tell them they are an individual.

I lived with my single mom but she wasn't around much so I was mostly around male coaches. Even if that explains the cause it won't make it go away. I was diagnosed with gender dysphoria a few years ago after talking to a therapist for almost a year and they suggested hormones. I've tried getting opinions from other therapists and they said similar things or suggested I slowly start dressing more like a woman.

The reason I'm trying so hard to find other options is because I know I can't pass. My bone structure on its own prevents that from happening yet it still feels like I'm heading down that path. If you know of any former trans people who found a way to identify as their sex I am definitely all ears though.

You’ll never be satisfied with the way you look. You will ALWAYS have dysphoria. No matter how hard you try you will never become a woman. The only way to be one is to be born as one.

Stop going to therapists that are like that. Stop surrounding yourself with people that push ‘transitioning’ down your throat. Whether that be real life, social media, music, tv, pop culture, political groups. Whatever you have to do to avoid it, do it.

Accept yourself as who you are. A man. An individual. You just hate yourself and in order to cope you have to view yourself as something other than who you actually are. + you have mommy/daddy issues.

Ever since the fall, hell’s mouth has gaped open. Many will be swallowed up today. More will the next day. And the next. This reality caused even the apostle Paul profound sorrow and unceasing anguish (Romans 9:2). Does it for the rest of us?

This world is a doorway into eternity — a fact that few today consider and fear. Sinners frolic before the Almighty God, daring to provoke him to his face. Although God hates all evildoers (Psalm 5:5), burns with indignation towards the unrepentant every day (Psalm 7:11), and is even now whetting his sword and bending his bow in judgment (Psalms 7:11–13), the unrepentant go about life unmindful of their predicament. They slumber atop an active volcano.

They mistake the God of delayed wrath for the God of no wrath at all. They hear about the nuclear bomb of eternity, but are self-assured that it will never detonate. They approach the God of the Bible like some do those British royal guards: mocking, poking, and testing him to see if he will move — never realizing that the rifle has lowered until it is too late.

And they love the god they’ve created. Their god is never angry with them. Their god, if he even hates their sin, only loves the sinner. Their god is only merciful, only forgiving, only compassionate. Their god does not take sin personally, nor would he require the shedding of blood to forgive it. Their god serves the creature and simply pours forth unconditional love when and how the creature calls for it.

But this god is a pipe dream. This god is a demon. This god is absent from the Old and New Testaments. Even now, the true God holds the unrepentant by the nape of the neck to do them unspeakable injury if they will not bow to his great love and mercy, and take up his terms of peace and eternal joy offered them in the blood of his own Son.

Ryan T. Anderson #fundie mercatornet.com

In Sunday’s New York Times, Andrea Long Chu writes a heartfelt and heartbreaking op-ed on life with gender dysphoria. Titled “My New Vagina Won’t Make Me Happy,” the op-ed reveals painful truths about many transgender lives and inadvertently communicates almost the exact opposite of its intended argument.

Next week, Chu will undergo vaginoplasty surgery. Or, as Chu puts it: “Next Thursday, I will get a vagina. The procedure will last around six hours, and I will be in recovery for at least three months.”

Will this bring happiness? Probably not, but Chu wants it all the same: “This is what I want, but there is no guarantee it will make me happier. In fact, I don’t expect it to. That shouldn’t disqualify me from getting it.”

Chu argues that the simple desire for sex-reassignment surgery should be all that is required for a patient to receive it. No consideration for authentic health and wellbeing or concern about poor outcomes should prevent a doctor from performing the surgery if a patient wants it. Chu explains: “no amount of pain, anticipated or continuing, justifies its withholding.”

This is a rather extreme conclusion. Chu writes: “surgery’s only prerequisite should be a simple demonstration of want.” This is quite a claim. And we’ll come back to it. But as the op-ed builds to this stark conclusion, Chu reveals many frequently unacknowledged truths about transgender lives—truths that we should attend to.

Sex isn’t “assigned,” and surgery can’t change it

First, Chu acknowledges that the surgery won’t actually “reassign” sex: “my body will regard the vagina as a wound; as a result, it will require regular, painful attention to maintain.”

Sex reassignment is quite literally impossible. Surgery can’t actually reassign sex, because sex isn’t “assigned” in the first place.

As I point out in When Harry Became Sally, sex is a bodily reality—the reality of how an organism is organized with respect to sexual reproduction. That reality isn’t “assigned” at birth or any time after.

Sex—maleness or femaleness—is established at a child’s conception, can be ascertained even at the earliest stages of human development by technological means, and can be observed visually well before birth with ultrasound imaging. Cosmetic surgery and cross-sex hormones don’t change biological reality.

People who undergo sex-reassignment procedures do not become the opposite sex—they merely masculinize or feminize their outward appearance.

Gender dysphoria Is deeply painful

Second, Chu acknowledges the deep pain of gender dysphoria, the sense of distress or alienation one feels at one’s bodily sex:

Dysphoria feels like being unable to get warm, no matter how many layers you put on. It feels like hunger without appetite. It feels like getting on an airplane to fly home, only to realize mid-flight that this is it: You’re going to spend the rest of your life on an airplane. It feels like grieving. It feels like having nothing to grieve.

“Transitioning” may not make things better and could make them worse

Third, Chu acknowledges that “transitioning” may not make things better and could even make things worse. Chu writes: “I feel demonstrably worse since I started on hormones.” And continues: “Like many of my trans friends, I’ve watched my dysphoria balloon since I began transition.”

Indeed, as I document in When Harry Became Sally, the medical evidence suggests that sex reassignment does not adequately address the psychosocial difficulties faced by people who identify as transgender. Even when the procedures are successful technically and cosmetically, and even in cultures that are relatively “trans-friendly,” transitioners still face poor outcomes.

Even the Obama administration admitted that the best studies do not report improvement after reassignment surgery.

In August 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid wrote: “the four best designed and conducted studies that assessed quality of life before and after surgery using validated (albeit non-specific) psychometric studies did not demonstrate clinically significant changes or differences in psychometric test results after GRS [gender reassignment surgery].”

What does that mean? A population of patients is suffering so much that they would submit to amputations and other radical surgeries, and the best research the Obama administration could find suggests that it brings them no meaningful improvements in their quality of life.

Suicide is a serious risk

Fourth, Chu acknowledges a struggle with suicide ideation: “I was not suicidal before hormones. Now I often am.”

In 2016, the Obama administration acknowledged a similar reality. In a discussion of the largest and most robust study on sex-reassignment, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid pointed out “The study identified increased mortality and psychiatric hospitalization compared to the matched controls. The mortality was primarily due to completed suicides (19.1-fold greater than in control Swedes).”

These results are tragic. And they directly contradict the most popular media narratives, as well as many of the snapshot studies that do not track people over time.

Indeed, the Obama administration noted that “mortality from this patient population did not become apparent until after 10 years.” So when the media tout studies that only track outcomes for a few years, and claim that reassignment is a stunning success, there are good grounds for skepticism.

The purpose of medicine is healing

This brings us back to Chu’s argument that “surgery’s only prerequisite should be a simple demonstration of want.” What should we make of it?

Why should a doctor perform surgery when it won’t make the patient happy, it won’t accomplish its intended goal, it won’t improve the underlying condition, it might make the underlying condition worse, and it might increase the likelihood of suicide?

Chu wants to turn the profession of medicine on its head, transforming a medical doctor into nothing more than “a highly competent hired syringe,” in the words of Leon Kass.

Unfortunately, Chu isn’t alone. Many professionals now view health care—including mental health care—primarily as a means of fulfilling patients’ desires, whatever those are. Kass explains:

The implicit (and sometimes explicit) model of the doctor-patient relationship is one of contract: the physician—a highly competent hired syringe, as it were—sells his services on demand, restrained only by the law (though he is free to refuse his services if the patient is unwilling or unable to meet his fee).

Here’s the deal: for the patient, autonomy and service; for the doctor, money, graced by the pleasure of giving the patient what he wants. If a patient wants to fix her nose or change his gender, determine the sex of unborn children, or take euphoriant drugs just for kicks, the physician can and will go to work—provided that the price is right and that the contract is explicit about what happens if the customer isn’t satisfied.

This vision of medicine and medical professionals gets it wrong. Professionals ought to profess their devotion to the purposes and ideals they serve. That’s what makes them professionals, and not just service providers.

Teachers should be devoted to learning, lawyers to justice under law, and physicians to “healing the sick, looking up to health and wholeness.” Healing is “the central core of medicine,” Kass writes—“to heal, to make whole, is the doctor’s primary business.”

But Chu’s vision of medicine turns the doctor into someone who merely satisfies desires, even if what is done isn’t good for a patient. Chu writes:

I still want this, all of it. I want the tears; I want the pain. Transition doesn’t have to make me happy for me to want it. Left to their own devices, people will rarely pursue what makes them feel good in the long term. Desire and happiness are independent agents.

Sound medicine isn’t about desire, it’s about healing. To provide the best possible care, serving the patient’s medical interests requires an understanding of human wholeness and well-being. Mental health care must be guided by a sound concept of human flourishing.

Our brains and senses are designed to bring us into contact with reality, connecting us with the outside world and with the reality of ourselves. Thoughts and feelings that disguise or distort reality are misguided, and they can cause harm. In When Harry Became Sally, I argue that we need to do a better job of helping people who face these struggles.

Misrepresentations of my work

And Chu takes issue with me:

Many conservatives call this [gender dysphoria] crazy. A popular right-wing narrative holds that gender dysphoria is a clinical delusion; hence, feeding that delusion with hormones and surgeries constitutes a violation of medical ethics.

Just ask the Heritage Foundation fellow Ryan T. Anderson, whose book “When Harry Became Sally” draws heavily on the work of Dr. Paul McHugh, the psychiatrist who shut down the gender identity clinic at Johns Hopkins in 1979 on the grounds that trans-affirmative care meant “cooperating with a mental illness.”

Mr. Anderson writes, “We must avoid adding to the pain experienced by people with gender dysphoria, while we present them with alternatives to transitioning.”

Of course I never call people with gender dysphoria crazy. And I explicitly state in the book that I take no position on the technical question of whether someone’s thinking that he or she is the opposite sex is a clinical delusion. That’s why Chu couldn’t quote any portion of my book saying as much.

Throughout the book, I point out that the feelings that people who identify as transgender report are real—they really feel a disconnect with their bodily sex—but I also acknowledge the fact that those feelings don’t change bodily reality. I recognize the real distress that gender dysphoria can cause, but never do I call people experiencing it crazy.

I repeatedly acknowledge that gender dysphoria is a serious condition, that people who experience a gender identity conflict should be treated with respect and compassion, that we need to find better, more humane and effective, responses to people who experience dysphoria.

Nevertheless, Chu claims that I am engaged in “‘compassion-mongering,’ peddling bigotry in the guise of sympathetic concern.”

For the record, Chu never contacted me regarding my research or my book. Nor did the Times contact me to verify any of the claims made about me in the op-ed. Indeed, this is the second time the New York Times has published an op-ed with inaccurate criticisms of me and my book.

Americans disagree about gender identity and the best approaches to treating gender dysphoria. We need to respect the dignity of people who identify as transgender while also doing everything possible to help people find wholeness and happiness.

That will require a better conversation about these issues, which is why I wrote my book. And it’s presumably why Chu wrote this op-ed. Now is not the time for personal attacks and name-calling, but for sober and respectful truth-telling.

Chu may regard me as a “bigot,” but I regard Chu as a fellow human being made in the image and likeness of God who is struggling with a painful and dangerous condition. As such, Chu deserves care and support that will bring health and wholeness—not the on-demand delivery of “services” that even Chu acknowledges are unlikely to make life better and may make it very much worse.

Men gave these subhuman pieces of shit rights and Men WILL TAKE THEM AWAY. Unfortunately we exist in an age where we have traitors among us who should be castrated and shot for their allegiance to feminists. They bolster this agenda and give it legitimacy. They side with the stinking cunts. It's criminal and soon we will rectify this.

What has Cosby been doing but exercising his natural right as a Man over the lowly cunt? This is as it should be. In fact, it is a travesty that he needed to use drugs to aid in the process. In a proper world not infected by the feminist plague, a man just rapes a cunt and that is that. If that cunt is another man's property, then this will have to be worked out by the LAWS OF MEN, but the seditious notion that a cunt has autonomy over her body is FUCKING LUDICROUS.

BORN WITH A CUNT. BORN A SLAVE. That's the end of it.

The world won't stay this way for ever. I find it hilarious to think that when the false bubble of our civilization pops and we revert back to our natural order, all the artifice shielding these cunts will drop away and they will realize the only thing they have to protect them against the coming onslaught is a flimsy pair of panties. Feminism doesn't mean shit if Men don't recognize it.

Crush feminism. Strangle it. Make it bleed out its asshole. It is disease and if you are a real Man you will stamp it out in your home, in your neighborhood, your cities, your nation, and the world.

Any of you fucks who have capitulated to these noxious cunts, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.

No quarter for filthy feminist pigs.

Conservative state legislatures have been hesitant to defy tyranny for many years. Most Christians in this country have been reluctant to fight against evil in my lifetime, although there is as much to fight for today as there ever has been. The soul of our nation hangs in the balance as we sit on our hands and complain about losing our country, all the while our enemies are mocking us and not just defying our Constitution, a set of laws created by man, but mocking and defying God.

I am not one to pick a fight, this fight began a long time before I ever got here. I firmly believe in the Constitution and the rule of law, which I have sworn an oath to uphold.

It is our duty as men and women of Christ to stand in the gap between tyranny and evil and those who are unable to defend themselves. There is one set of laws above all others and that is God’s law. Nine judges cannot override God’s law. They may defy it, but they cannot override it. I for one will no longer sit idly by as an elected State Representative for MS and do nothing while judge/s act as if they are more Supreme than God Almighty.

I am calling on the Mississippi Legislature to pass a law outlawing abortion after a heartbeat is detected, with the only exception being if the mother’s life is at risk. Some things are worth getting sued over and worth fighting for. No matter how many judges pass injunctions or what fines or penalties they try and threaten us with we must stay strong in the face of evil and defy their orders to allow abortion to take place in our state. The time to act is now. Young women should not be faced with this burdensome decision any longer, it should simply not be an option.

We must destroy evil before it destroys our nation and our children’s future. We must uphold God’s law in our land as well as the Constitution — for the latter cannot exist without the blessing of the first. If it is the last thing that I do as a state Legislator I will see to it that every last abortion clinic in this state is closed.

In His Service,

Robert Foster

5 Aliens Creatures Left Behind on Earth!

Description:

History and mythology are filled with human explorers lost in unknown lands. Odysseus is one such famous explorer. If aliens existed, wouldn’t that mean their explorers could be left behind too? These are 5 alien creatures left behind on earth. Let’s begin!

5.) 4chan Alien Image
http://imgur.com/UrEgV3d

This allegedly a real image of an alien that was posted on 4chan. According to witnesses, the photo was posted before the website was suddenly taken down by a DDOS attack. When the site returned, the image of the alleged alien was gone, as well as any copies on archived versions of 4chan. Stranger yet, those who claimed to have downloaded the image claimed to have lost their copies as well, as if they were deleted from their computer by an unknown intruder. The story associated with this image suggests that this picture remains because of an error that left it corrupted, making it difficult for automatic algorithms to detect and delete from websites and computers.


4.) Alien Survivors Turn Russian Soldiers to Stone
http://beforeitsnews.com/paranormal/2017/04/23-russian-soldiers-killed-by-an-alien-entity-2523515.html

During the Cold War there were a number of classified sightings and close encounters with aliens that remained unreported until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. While there are a number of reports of confrontations between the Soviet military and aliens, this is perhaps one of the strangest and most disturbing. According to official reports, a UFO was shot down over Siberia during military training exercises. When soldiers went to retrieve the craft, they were attacked by aliens. It was there that they found that the aliens were not only alive, but resistant, and reportedly used their technology to turn the Soviet soldiers into stone - mirroring ancient mythologies.

3.) Strange Creature Found in California Woods
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3310657/It-dead-Body-slimy-pink-creature-Californian-woman-s-backyard-leads-frenzied-speculation-alien.html

The day after a strange light had been seen off the California coast, a Facebook user named Gianna Peponis found a strange, slimy corpse at the edge of her property in San Jose, California. According to Peponis, she heard a scream outside her house and went to investigate. She found this creature in the woods that surround her property. It was translucent, gooey, and apparently dead. Peponis claimed that Facebook removed the picture, trying to censor her. People speculated as to the creature’s origin.

2.) Dr. Reed’s Alien Surgery
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxy-k7CZYKc
http://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/80/590x/secondary/Reed-UFO-631838.jpg

This video captures the autopsy of an alien wounded by one Dr. Jonathan Reed. Reed, a psychologist, was taking photographs while while through the woods when he was attacked by an alien. Reed knocked the creature unconscious with a stone, or perhaps even killed it, and took a photo of its black, triangular craft. The doctor wrapped the creature in a thermal blanket and escaped with the body before any witnesses arrived. After returning to his home with the body of the alien, he undertook a home autopsy in his garage, recording it the entire time. This creature seems to reflect a classical alien; it’s grey, humanoid, with long, lanky limbs, and wears some kind of featureless uniform.

1.) McGuire Alien Air Force Base
http://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/777533/Alien-shot-McGuire-Air-Force-New-Jersey-Base-Sgt-Jeff-Morse

Aliens are often associated with military bases for one reason or another. Many claim that military bases often serve as places where militaries of Earth house and work alongside aliens to some unknown, horrifying ends. If they were working together, that would not explain this strange encounter a U.S. service member had with an alien while patrolling the base. According to reports, Sgt. Jeff Morse, a military policeman, was patrolling the base when he encountered an alien entity in the road. Sgt. Morse got out of his jeep, and instructed the creature to surrender itself, and fired on it when it did not, killing it. The base called law enforcement, but a strange military unit Sgt. Morse was unfamiliar with arrived, claiming the alien’s body and taking it away. This happened after a series of UFO sightings near the base - could it be that this alien was a recon scout preparing for an invasion?

Schrödinger’s Demographics

Last week, Democrats won full control of Virginia’s state government. Among those elected were Ghazala Hashmi, Virginia’s first Muslim woman state senator. Virginia, like California, is now solidly — and probably permanently — blue.

Republican pundits were baffled that Governor Ralph Northam’s blackface scandals and extreme pro-abortion positions — along with other democrat sex scandals — didn’t hurt Democrats.

They shouldn’t be surprised. California went from red to blue because of demographic change. What just happened in Virginia will happen to Texas, Georgia, and Florida soon. Politics is downstream from culture, but culture is downstream from race.

Less than 70 percent of Virginia’s electorate is white, and Democrats win an overwhelming share of the ever-increasing non-white vote. A Heritage Foundation report found even non-citizens who voted in recent state elections.

The political consequences are obvious. If you celebrate those consequences, the mainstream media welcome your opinion. If you oppose them, you are racist for suggesting demographic transformation matters.

Call it “Schrödinger’s Demographics.” Demographic and political changes either exist or don’t depending on whether you think they are good or bad.
Democrats and their media allies are proud to attribute their triumph to “diversity.”

“[A] younger, more racially diverse electorate combined with a backlash against President Trump to propel the most dramatic political shift in a generation to Prince William and Loudon counties.” Washington Post, November 6, 2019

“Tuesday’s elections also seem to indicate changing demographics, something highlighted by women and African Americans winning seats in statewide and local races.” Free Lanec-Star in a story entitled, “Tuesday’s election paints picture of changing demographics.”

“We are winning because we recognize the power of an electorate that includes and reflects the diversity of our state.” New York Times, November 6, 2019

The Times op-ed by Tram Nguyen of New Virginia Majority also claimed that felons’ who had their voting rights restored by former governor Terry McAuliffe were a “key voting bloc.”

Like these writers, Laura Ingraham also recognized that demographics matter. “Virginia’s foreign-born population nearly doubled from 2000 and 2017,” she said, “and these immigrants are mostly concentrated in Northern Virginia, Fairfax Country, Loudon County, Prince William County, outside of D.C., and they are altering the demographic makeup of the state – and, as The Washington Post and others have pointed out, the electorate.”
However, when Miss Ingraham made essentially the same observation that liberals had, it became “racist.”

Former governor Terry McAuliffe called the very use of the term foreign-born “horrible.” “She oughta take her racist policies, go sit with Donald Trump and have a good afternoon talking to each other,” he said. “We don’t want that in the Commonwealth in Virginia [sic]. We are a strong state because of our diversity.” CNN’s Dana Bash said that regardless of the term Miss Ingraham used, state demographics are shifting. Mr. McAuliffe responded that “America’s demographics are shifting,” repeated his love of diversity, and said Laura Ingraham could leave Virginia because “we don’t want that racist kind of talk in our state.”

(Terry McAuliffe lives in McLean, Virginia. The Census Bureau reports it is over 75 percent white and 18 percent Asian. It’s less than two percent black and just over five percent Hispanic. The New Republic calls it “home of America’s ruling class.”)

A flurry of “point-and-sputter” articles appeared condemning Laura Ingraham for noticing the obvious.

“Fox News’ Laura Ingraham Blames ‘Foreign-born Population,’ George Soros for GOP Losses in Virginia,” Haaretz

“Laura Ingraham says ‘foreign-born’ voters and George Soros to blame for GOP Virginia losses,” Newsweek

“Laura Ingraham blames GOP losses in Virginia on George Soros, ‘demographic changes’ and ‘foreign-born population’,” Media Matters for America
(“Demographic changes” in scare quotes is an especially nice touch.)

The social media campaign Sleeping Giants, which runs economic pressure campaigns against conservatives, called her “racist.” Of course, both demographic change and George Soros’s massive spending in Virginia are facts.

In April, The Washington Post reported “Money from PAC funded by George Soros shakes up prosecutor races in Northern Virginia.” A follow-up story in the Post a few months later said a PAC supported by Mr. Soros spent nearly one million dollars “to promote progressive challengers in the Democratic primary races for prosecutor in Arlington and Fairfax counties.”

The Washington Free Beacon reported a few days ago that the PAC was “flooding Virginia with hundreds of thousands of dollars in a last-minute effort to support Democratic prosecutors on the ballot on Nov. 5.” Democrats swept these elections, an outcome The Washington Post reported was “powered to a significant degree by Democratic megadonor George Soros, whose political action committee spent nearly $2.1 million in the primary and general election on polls, mailers, and advertisements” for various candidates.

Facts are irrelevant. What matters to journalists is whether someone celebrates replacement migration taking place. “The Confederacy is dead,” wrote Bennett Minton in The Washington Post, celebrating a Democratic coalition that is “educated, racially and ethnically diverse and dominated by women.” Republicans, he said, have a “shrinking base” with voters that are “whiter, less educated, and rural.” He anticipated that Governor Northam will soon sign a bill authorizing localities to remove Confederate statues.

This will be a powerful symbol of white Southerners’ dispossession. Yet some conservatives are still blind. In response to Minton’s column, Jessie Jane Duff of Veterans for Trump tried, once again, a variation of the “Democrats are the real racists” argument.

This tired script failed spectacularly. Non-whites are not impressed by GOP groveling, nor should they be. It’s entirely rational that non-whites vote for the party that gives them racial preferences, government handouts, and demographic reinforcements.

Even Bill Kristol admitted we don’t have elections anymore, just a census. The Republican Party depends on white voters. Liberals recognize this, but when conservatives say it out loud, liberals call them “racist.” Clearly, reality is racist.

Re: News outlets report that a "woman" commits multiple assaults. Surprise! The accused is actually a man.

(raddy-set-go)
Honestly the whole "woman commits crime / oh by the way she's trans" is becoming the "jump scare" of news stories. It's meant to catch you off guard but you end up seeing it coming miles away.

(DontbetheGround)
Yeah. That's true. Headlines/articles along the lines of:

"Women rapes and murders women and children" Or "Women tries to murder random strangers with an ax in a crazed violence spree 'cause her feelings got hurt"....um....yeah. No. That don't sound right....hmmmm.

Takes 2 seconds to Google: Oh. Okay, not some rare outlier of our statistics. No. No. It's just another dude. This one is "claiming to be a women." Wonder how I knew to Google that?

These males are going to completely screw up data and research.

(2or3thingsIknow)
Yet another reason these sick and twisted men should stay men. They are not welcome as women. They are men.

(Penfragon)
Yes, absolutely. This was in /r/news with no one mentioning he was trans, only saying she/her, and I fucking knew something was really not right about it without realising it was an inevitable Tim yet.

(Feminazcabooby)
No real woman would go around attacking men because dude... HAVE YOU SEEN MEN? Unless you're targeting elderly or disabled men, you're going to get your ass handed to you.

(DontbetheGround)
Hate to break it to you: old men are still stupid strong. As for disabled, I reckon that depends on the disability. I know a paraplegic, double amputee, that works as a bouncer in a really rough place. If someone is within his reach (and dum-dums get cocky and move within his reach) their ass is grass.

Nope. Males are stupid strong. They, general statement, don't tend to be weak until they are 'death bed weak.' (Just sharing information.)

(womeninlove)
The standards for reporting that make this person out to be a woman are like nation-wide gaslighting.

Even with the outlets that are reporting on the fact that he is male, the powers that be will never let the story gain enough traction to spur discussion about the problems inherent in reporting feelings vs. facts and how harmful this is to women.

(Mountains_beyond)
If a man identifies as a woman, no matter how clearly deranged he is, he is taken seriously. In this case in Oregon, where some lady-identifying dude was arrested for “its just a prank, bro!” threatening people with a gun, they had to add “suspect identifies as a woman”, because there was no other way to tell.

(Carthimundia)
I remember a while ago the news had a really tough time reporting on this TIM who went back into Male mode to avoid the police after committing a crime. They said they were looking for a woman who was impersonating a man. But of course it was really a man who had just taken his wig off!

AhhhhhhhhHahahahaha you’re joking right? There’s no fucking way real detectives/cops said “a woman impersonating a man”

I can’t remember that case now, but there was another case with a TIM and the newspaper headline said “woman commits fraud by pretending to be a man.” But he was a TIM who changed his identity back to his old male one to defraud people!

(morningtea50)
The job of journalists is to check and then report the facts. It is NOT their job to push a political agenda by lying about the sex of the person committing crimes because they think they’re winning social justice points or something. At this point I no longer trust anything I read about a ‘woman’ committing a crime until I go into the article itself and read the comments – sometimes the media will include a photograph of the criminal so we can see the person is a biological male that does not happen very often.

Great job, news media. I no longer trust what I read when it’s anything about women committing crimes.

(vulvapeople)
I've seen it suggested elsewhere that the attacker might actually be a TIF, which would track with one of the victims identifying the attacker as a woman and with the rather female body shape of the attacker. (That's all I have to go on anyway. I haven't been able to find a good image of the suspect.) It'll be interesting to see if this is ever clarified as the case progresses.

Regardless, this story is yet another example of how trans bullshit makes it impossible to report the news accurately.

5 Slender Man Caught On Tape & Spotted In Real Life!

Description:

The first known mention of Slender Man comes from a Something Awful image in 2009. Some people believe that the Slender Man is significantly older, going back hundreds or even thousands of years. Regardless of his origin, the Slender Man has grown into a true supernatural phenomenon that transcends culture and language barriers. Is the Slender Man real? If the mere idea of the Slender Man drove two girls to attempt to kill their classmate in 2014, he’s real enough. Let’s begin!

5.) Slenderman in House
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRH20...

One thing that can be said about the slenderman is that he can appear anywhere, as if from thin air, at any time, though he does have a fondness for people recording themselves or others using outdated media. In this video, a man and woman enjoy a casual conversation as the girlfriend records them using a camera VHS recorder that she’s found. The man asks her to put it back, and as the conversation continues the video begins to become distorted. The woman turns around to return the camera, and finds the Slender Man towering over her in their hallway. She tries to run as the video becomes increasingly distorted. They try to climb out the window, and the video ends.

4.) Slenderman In Real Life
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKO5u...

In this video a few pranksters get more than they bargain for when they are presumably killed by the Slender Man. A couple of kids looking to goof on people by ding dong ditching them, a mild prank that involves trespassing, ringing the doorbells of strangers, and running away. When one of their friends goes missing, we learn that they rang the wrong door bell. They try to find him, but it’s not until they reach the end of the street do they find him - under the power of the Slender Man. As is typical, the Slender Man and his victim disappear in an instant. They run, and just when they think that they are safe, one of them is grabbed and dragged away screaming by the Slender Man.

3.) Slender Man Kidnaps Little Girl
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3EPS...

A keystone of Slender Man’s mythos is that he has a taste of abducting children to serve some unknown, horrifying end. This may be why, often times, he is sighted by young children recording videos in their parents’ backyards. In this video, a child is kidnapped right from under her father’s care. While recording their time together, the little girl hears a noise and her father sees a stranger pointing through their window. He leaves the girl alone to go confront the stranger outside, but when he returns to the house she’s gone. The father runs down the street to find his daughter, but when he finds her she’s walking hand in hand with Slender Man into a bank of fog. The little girl’s whereabouts are unknown, and she is presumably dead.

2.) Slenderman in Russia
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LqZt... (use the nighttime video)

While the Slender Man is typically sighted in his human form, Slender Man also has a more disturbing, monstrous form that is less frequently seen. As if a spider or octopus, the Slender Man sometimes outstretches his limbs to unbelievable lengths, or sometimes even sprouts entirely new ones that he may use to carry himself or cross terrain. In this video we see the Slender Man in this form as he crawls along the side of a large building. This exceptional size might indicate how it is that the Slender Man is able to quickly scale large distances in the blink of an eye.

1.) Slenderman Outside House
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bn59F... (don’t use the text cards)

Sometimes the Slender Man is respectful. While he’ll often arrive unannounced to ruin your life, kill your loved ones, and steal your children, he’ll occasionally knock first and wait patiently for you to present yourself to him. This is the quickest and easiest way for both of you. In this video, the victim looks outside his window to see the Slender Man quietly inspecting the architecture of his porch. Of course, as the Slender Man is an extradimensional monster, it knows when it is being watched and turns to the viewer. This has invited the Slender Man into your mind and life. Thank you for inviting the Slender Man into your mind and life.

This is not a life, but some kind of nonstop humiliation

Is this supposed to be funny? Is it a joke? Even the most sadistic fuck couldn't come up with something like this. I can't even begin to describe how perfectly every minute of this life has been calculated to cause total demoralization and anguish. If this was a game of chess, you have only a king on one square while all other squares on the board have an enemy queen. You are checkmated in every way possible. You are checkmated in ways you didn't even know you could be checkmated.

If you are reading this you have been devastatingly humiliated already multiple times today. Did you take a shit today? There is very little worse than having to take a shit. You literally have feces inside of your body that you have to expel, but some of them get stuck to you, so you have to wipe feces off of your body. Can you imagine anything more degrading? I've just said it and I'll say it again: Even the most sadistic fuck couldn't come up with something like this. So where did this absurdity come from? Every moment I wish it was just a bad dream, or a bad lsd trip, that will eventually go away. I am fucking owned, pwned and thrashed by life every moment of every day, there is no respite, it's like a superintelligence calculated the most perfect way possible of crushing someone. Am I living in hell? If so, I am really fucking sorry for what I did to deserve this.

Even childhood is supposed to be your tutorial mode, but if you aren't born a failed start, (starving to death as a kid, which happens a lot) then your childhood, if it's the best possible one, with no abuse, only serves to maximum bluepill you so you enter adult life totally unprepared with a rosy colored view that life then delights in crushing to pieces. And you weren't even intelligent enough as a child to enjoy your childhood as much as you should. If your childhood sucks, then you don't become hardened and tough like you deserve to be, instead, a shitty childhood turns to a shitty adulthood and then it only gets more distorted and dysphoric from there. Speaking of being utterly unprepared, how am I so completely unprepared just to exist? My thin, frail body can barely support it's own weight in this gravity. Seriously, don't we have millions of years of evolution that should have gotten us ready for this? Millions of years of evolution, and the summers are too fucking hot and the winters are too fucking cold. You would think that with millions of years of evolution we would be able to handle the ambient fucking conditions of our planet? Well, think again, fucktard. You are born powerless. You are also born wanting things you can't have, and then your brain hurts you by making you depressed when you have no possible way of satisfying its impossible demands.

One figures that with foids controlling evolution, we end up hopelessly weak and stupid creatures that are doomed to madness and failure. If high iq men controlled evolution, we would be 5th dimensional energy beings by now, but no, everything is perfect horror and thus the most unqualified things that can possibly exist- women, end up controlling the most important of all processes. It's like having a baby as the pilot of your plane.

This is the worst possible reality, yet somehow paradoxically complete with still having the opportunity to get twice as bad as it is at any moment. Humiliation day in and day out, coping is humiliation, roping it obscene levels of humiliation. There is no way out. There is nothing more cucked than having been born, and being alive. Even now I can think of hundreds and hundreds of ways in which life is wiping the floor with me. BrazilianSigma get a job.

W. F. Price #fundie web.archive.org

[This is an archived post from 2014 so it's somewhat dated, but it nonetheless provides an insight into Price's mind; his desire for traditional restrictions and boundaries for their own sake, against what he sees as the dehumanization of individualism. Read this post alongside this to get a fuller picture: http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=111274]

The head of our propaganda outreach to Russians, a radical feminist lesbian supporter of Pussy Riot named Masha Gessen, wrote an op ed a couple weeks ago that essentially makes Putins case for him. Gessen, of course, sees herself as an ally of progress, but she and her cohort are responsible for alienating an enormous number of native born Americans including, incidentally, those who would traditionally be most inclined to sacrifice themselves for the flag and nation.

...

Gessen focuses on homosexuality to the exclusion of other fraught cultural issues, clearly because she is biased in this regard. However, it is not only coerced acceptance of a redical redefinition of family, which Gessen explicitly supports, but the annihilation of distinct cultures and peoples through a radical form of multiculturalism and promotion of diversity at all costs. Naturally, the peoples who succumb first are the smaller nationalities, but ultimately everyone loses as a fundamental part of their humanity their culture is amputated or otherwise mutilated to fit some poorly defined common form that every man, woman and child can be stuffed into. Adding to that, Americas aggression against non-belligerents, foreign adventurism and coercion of weaker nations and peoples to impose its will has added an element of terror to our crusades. In truth, the American right and left differ only in their means, but the end goal is the same: the obliteration of any and all that stands in the way of unrestricted expression of the id. It is, as Putin correctly notes, a descent into chaotic darkness and a return to a primitive state.

The contemporary American elites vision for the future is a horrific nightmare in which anything goes, and therefore nothing is distinct or cherished but pure power to do as one pleases. There are to be no limits but the physical: no moral restraint, no customs, no traditions to stand in the way of unfettered action on primal desires and appetites. Putin, it seems, is genuinely opposed to this mission on a personal level, and has articulated his opposition in a manner that has galvanized the Russian people into a politically united force.

...

Again, institutionalized homosexuality is only one issue, but it may have been the one that finally crossed a red line. Considering that even in my very liberal state of Washington legalization of gay marriage passed by only about one percentage point in late 2012, and then only after enormous campaign donations from the globalist billionaires in the state, it is probably too costly even for the US to successfully convince the rest of the world that it is a good idea. But for whatever reason, progressives have made it their defining cause and staked their movements claim to the future on it. This act of hubris may prove to be progressivisms Achilles heel, but in the long run what matters and hurts the most for those of us more traditional Americans is our dramatic loss of faith in our own nation.

To see the US reduced to little more than a platform for the greedy and licentious when it used to be a beacon of liberty and common decency in a savage world is profoundly unsettling. It is also why I am all but certain that our decline is a fait accompli rather than an imminent threat.

At this point, we can only hope that nihilistic radicals like Masha Gessen refrain from plunging us into a catastrophic war on their behalf, sacrificing our sons for ideals that we despise from the bottom of our hearts.

Dave Blount #racist moonbattery.com

[From "Minneapolis: Mogadishu on the Mississippi"]

Thanks to the massive importation of welfare colonists from arguably the most savage nation in the world, formerly pleasant Minneapolis has been socially reengineered — or to use more politically correct terminology, it has been multiculturally enriched. This is evidenced by an event that occurred Friday night. A mob of eight to 10 “Somali juveniles” wielding hammers attacked random bystanders at the East Bank Light Rail station. Via Alpha News:

A person who claimed on social media to have been at the station when the incident occurred said that the group of males had “hammers and bars,” and that they seemed to be “attacking anyone who looked like they had money or were white.” The witness, who said he isn’t white, said he didn’t want to “[take] on a bunch of dudes with blunt objects,” and that he “hurried an older white lady away” and they walked a few blocks to catch a bus.

How convenient that people in the Minneapolis area can experience the excitement of living in Africa without ever leaving home.

Needless to say, the story has not received much press.

This is just a foretaste of their plan for our future. Refer to South Africa for further details.

8 Huge Myths about Hell

The reality of hell and eternal punishment is not a popular topic, even among Christians. Part of the problem is that the nature of hell has been horribly distorted in our culture and portrayed as an experience that is far from what we read in the NT. When I’m asked why I believe in hell, my response is three-fold.
First, I have such unshakable and robust confidence in the inerrant truth of every word in the Bible that the matter is already settled before I even read the text. I believe, as the Apostle Paul said in 2 Timothy 3:16, that “all Scripture [even texts such as Revelation 14:9-11] is breathed out by God and [is] profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.”
Second, by God’s grace I have come to understand, at least to some degree, the immeasurable magnitude and majesty of God’s holiness and beauty and authority and the honor that is due to him from all of his creatures, including you and me.
Third, again by God’s grace I have come to understand the immeasurable horror and ugliness and self-centeredness of humanity’s sin and depravity and wickedness.

If hell strikes you as unreasonable or unfair...

So I can honestly say that to the degree that you and I struggle with the concept of hell and eternal punishment is the degree to which we don’t understand God’s holiness and honor, on the one hand, or the horror and depravity of mankind’s sin, on the other. In other words, if hell strikes you as unreasonable or unfair or disproportionate, it can only be due to the fact that either you don’t believe the Bible is inspired and true, or you don’t believe that God is infinitely holy and just, or you don’t believe that mankind is morally depraved and has committed cosmic treason and is thus deserving of eternal condemnation.
As noted, contributing to the problem of hell are the numerous myths or false beliefs that surround it.
Here are eight of them:

Myth #1: Hell is a place to be united with unbelievers.

There is widespread belief among non-Christians that hell is a place where they will be united with their unbelieving friends and drink beer all the time in an endless party. The fact is that hell is a place of utter isolation, loneliness, and deprivation.

Myth #2: Hell is a place where Satan and his demons reign.

Another false belief is that hell is the place where Satan and his demons exercise their authority to rule and reign. The fact is that hell is the place where Satan and his demons suffer eternal punishment. Satan and his demons are inmates in hell, not its warden or guards. See Matthew 25:41 for one clear statement to that effect:
“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels."

Myth #3: Satan and his demons will torment human beings in hell.

Directly related to the previous myth, there is the notion among many that in hell Satan and his demons torment human beings who also are there. No. There is not one text in the Bible that suggests Satan and his demons afflict or torment human beings. They themselves, instead, are the object of God’s punishment. There have been numerous books written by people who claim to have visited hell in which they describe a scene where demons are tormenting humans who have been consigned there. This should be the first indication to all careful, Bible-believing readers that such an experience is fabricated.

Myth #4: There are people in hell who want to reconcile with God.

Yet another misconception is that there are people in hell crying out for mercy who want to reconcile with God. Nothing in Scripture indicates this is so. Instead, those in hell are eternally defiant of God and hate him all the more with each passing moment.

Myth #5: There are people in hell who don't deserve to be there.

One of the more blasphemous notions about hell is that there are people in hell who don’t deserve to be there. Nothing could be farther from the truth. God’s justice is impeccable and he never consigns anyone to punishment in hell who does not fully deserve to suffer there.

Myth #6: There are people in hell who wanted to go to heaven.

A related myth is the notion that there are people in hell who wanted to go to heaven while they were still alive, but God wouldn’t let them. That is utterly false. Jesus himself made this clear when he said, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. . . . whoever comes to me I will never cast out . . . . For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day” (John 6:35, John 6:37b, John 6:40).

Myth #7: Hell holds people who will one day be released.

A seventh myth is that there are people in hell who will eventually be released and granted entrance into heaven. As much as we might wish this were true, it isn’t. The Bible does not teach the doctrine of universalism, that is, the idea that everyone will eventually be saved and given eternal life in the new heaven and new earth.

Myth #8: In hell, people will be rid of God.

Finally, there is the myth that in hell people will be rid of God and have no experience of him. That is not true. It is true they will have no experience of God’s loving and gracious presence, but they will most assuredly experience his presence in justice and wrath. In fact, we read in Revelation 14:10 that they will be tormented “in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb,” that is, in the presence of Jesus Christ. As John Piper has said, Revelation 14:10is not saying that “those in hell have the privilege of seeing what they enjoy, but that they have the remorse of seeing what they rejected.”

Hell should provoke anguish and urgency.

I’ll conclude with two brief observations. First, I can’t read biblical portrayals of hell and eternal punishment or think about it without feeling a deep and unrelenting agony in my heart. We should never talk about hell without weeping, for it is real and people are going there. This is not a subject for joking or lighthearted banter. It is an issue that should provoke within us both anguish and an urgent commitment to share the gospel with those who remain in unbelief.

Hell should provoke unfathomable gratitude.

My second reaction is one of unfathomable gratitude. When I read about hell in a passage like Revelation 14:9-11 I’m reading about what I deserve. God would have been perfectly just and righteous had he chosen to consign me to eternal torment. But in mercy he has drawn me to faith in his Son. In mercy he has poured out his wrath on Jesus in my place, a wrath and judgment that Jesus lovingly and willingly embraced and endured. Every single one of us deserves damnation. God owes us nothing but justice. The fact that he has given us mercy instead, and forgiveness instead of condemnation, ought to awaken in us the most heartfelt and passionate gratitude and praise.

Young people are confused today about nearly everything; including God, truth, roles in life, relationships, parenting, gender identity and morality. This is because Godless kook Communists, quacks liberals and queer leftists have deliberately confused them. Since 1963, God's Holy Word and prayer have been banned from America's classrooms. Can you imagine? Do we really trust in God as we profess on our currency, while we block Him from children's daily lives at school, and teach children instead that a Big Bang created them? What wickedness!!!

There is nothing more Godless than the dysfunctional public school system, which teaches children the bogus lies of evolution and the vile perversion of homosexuality. Children are confused, even many adults. In addition there is much conflicting information coming from the controlled liberal media, experts and church pulpits. We are a struggling nation in turmoil. Look at the shocking crimes being reported nationwide all the time. Was the Holy Bible really that bad for children? We are getting what we deserve as a nation.

Growing up in a home raised by same-sex parents is destructive to a child's sexual identity and proper character development. If you don't believe it, read the horror stories online and wake up . . .

Robert Oscar Lopez... crediting his two lesbian mothers for giving him the “best possible conditions for a child raised by a same-sex couple," while simultaneously emphasizing the sexual confusion he had growing up without a father figure that led him to becoming prostitute for older men. ...

SOURCE: Children Of Gay Parents Testify Against Same-Sex 'Marriage'

What a sad and tragic thing to grow up without a dad, craving the love of an older male so much that it made the boy easy prey for pedophiles and pederasts!!! Ultimately, it was his lesbian parents that led him into a life of male prostitution with sodomites. This is the dark reality of same-sex parenting! If you think this is an isolated case, you're a fool. LGBT activist groups and liberals in the media know the dark reality of homosexuality, but they cover it all up, fabricating bogus studies (which is super easy to do) and manipulating Gallup polls.

The following is typical lying propaganda from the kooky, liberal, leftist crowd . . .

Last month, a new study conducted by the University of Melbourne in Australia confirmed what experts have been saying for years: The children of gay parents are just as healthy and happy as the children of straight parents.

SOURCE: Conservatives harm children by opposing gay adoption | July 2014

WHAT A LIE!!! The article actually goes on to say that children of homosexual parents even turn out better sometimes than having normal heterosexual parents. WHAT A JOKE!!! Nothing could be further from the truth, evidenced by countless disturbing statements from adults who had gay parents. The truth is coming out, and will continue to do so. The only information claiming that gays make good parents is coming from the liberals, kooks and queers. The truth is coming from the victims themselves.

The following man was raised by two lesbians and was permanently harmed by it . . .

Jean-Dominique Bunel, a specialist in humanitarian law who’s done relief work in war-torn areas, was outraged by the French same-sex marriage law. He admitted to Le Figaro that, after being raised by two women, he has “suffered from the lack of a father,” from the lack of “a daily presence, a character and a properly masculine example, some counterweight to the relationship of my mother to her lover. I lived that absence of a father, experienced it, as an amputation.”

SOURCE: Same-Sex Marriage and Parenting: Four Big Myths Debunked

God's way is not just the best way, it is the only way that works. We're hearing a lot of propaganda from liberals about how difficult it is for homosexual children to cope in a “homophobic” society, but the truth is that homosexuality is a sin just like murder, stealing and adultery, and should be dealt with as such and discouraged because it hurts other people. The Bible teaches that men ought to fear God, Who will be every man's Judge in eternity (Romans 2:1; James 4:12; Romans 14:10-12). Proverb 8:13, “The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.” Proverb 9:10, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” We are a nation greatly lacking wisdom, because few people fear God anymore, evidenced by the transgression of the wicked. Sin abounds today, and the love of many people is waxing cold just as Jesus foretold in Matthew 24:12. This trend will only worsen as we draw nearer the end times.

(Do you mind sharing heaven with a neanderthal?)


Um there are no Neanderthals. They were fake, oh I guess you didn't know that.

Neanderthal: Still synonymous with brutishness, the first Neanderthal remains were found in France in 1908. Considered to be ignorant, ape-like, stooped and knuckle-dragging, much of the evidence now suggests that Neanderthal was just as human as us, and his stooped appearance was because of arthritis and rickets. Neanderthals are now recognized as skilled hunters, believers in an after-life, and even skilled surgeons, as seen in one skeleton whose withered right arm had been amputated above the elbow.

Narnia verses Harry Potter

A while back, I encountered a question on Yahoo Answers where someone inquired as to why some people have a negative attitude toward the magic displayed in Harry Potter but seem to have no problem with the magic displayed in the Chronicles of Narnia. I decided to submit an answer for this question, but as it happened, my answer turned into more of an essay, and the topic was closed before I submitted it. However, for those of you who have wondered the same thing, I decided to post it here with some minor modifications. Just my two cents, but I think there’s some food for thought.

To begin, despite some claims from other posters on Yahoo Answers, C.S. Lewis was a Christian and the similarities between Narnia and items in the Bible was intentional. They are not strictly allegory, where one thing in Narnia equals something else in the Bible. They are called “supposals.” The basic idea was that Lewis wondered what would happen if God had created another world and chose to die and rise again to save that world as He did ours. Note that the magic in the Chronicles is almost always coming directly from Aslan if it portrayed as good (There are a few exceptions to this), so it could be considered a metaphor for the miracles of God. The witch and her magic are depicted as evil.

On to Harry Potter. These books are very well written and J.K Rowling’s style is fun and witty. They are definitely entertaining books...but I do have some difficulty with them, and only part of it has to do with the magic they contain. The difficulty is actually threefold:

1. The Magic:
The difficulty with the magical elements in the Harry Potter books is that the magic is being portrayed as being a skill that can be learned by children in our world, if they possess the predisposition for it (Yes, I know this statement is vastly simplified). In the Chronicles, the children almost never practice magic themselves, and once when Lucy tries to, in Voyage of the Dawn Treader, she ends up probably destroying one of her friendships. Humans aren’t meant to practice magic.

2. The Violence:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (or Philosopher’s Stone, in England) started out mildly enough. The final confrontation is a bit eerie, but nothing too horribly violent, though we do have an instance of a human being possessed by a malevolent spirit (but that fits more into category #1). By Book Two, Chamber of Secrets, we have a young girl (also possessed) killing chickens (not to eat), and quite a bloody confrontation in the climactic scene. Skip on to Book Four, Goblet of Fire, and any semblance of these being child-appropriate books seems to be lost. We have a teacher casting illegal spells, including murder and torture (albeit on a spider) in a classroom, apparently with the benevolent headmaster’s consent. We have the murders of several characters, one another student from the school; Harry’s blood being taken for a foul piece of magic (which, at least, is depicted as being evil in the scene); a servant cutting off his hand as part of the same piece of sorcery...the violence in this book keeps getting worse...and books Five and Six don’t ease up on it much (In Six Harry accidentally casts a spell that essentially has the same effect as repeatedly stabbing another student). At the time of this article, Book Seven has yet to be released. Is there violence in the Narnia books? Yes, but you will notice it is tempered. Possibly the most terrifying scene in the series is the sacrifice of Aslan, but you will note that the girls look away at the moment the witch actually kills him.

3. The Morality:
Quite apart from magic or violence in either story, is the morality that is being taught in either series. I have heard the Harry Potter series heralded as books with incredibly strong morals, but a quick examination of the books reveals this statement to be patently false. Harry consistently lies, to his teachers, to his friends, to Dumbledore the headmaster. He and his friends steal potions ingredients from Professor Snape (But who cares? We don’t like Snape, so it’s ok, right?). In fact, he’s rewarded for the first rule he breaks. When the entire class is told they will be expelled if they try to fly on their broomsticks without a teacher present, Harry takes off on his broom after Draco Malfoy, who has stolen something from a friend (But hey, it’s ok for a kid to risk life and limb for a noble cause, yes?). Not only is he not expelled, he’s REWARDED, given a prestigious place on one of the school sports teams.

Not convinced? Well, how about Professor Lupin, who neglects to mention to the headmaster that a convicted murderer is quite possibly sneaking into the school disguised as a dog? Why doesn’t Lupin say anything? Because it would be EMBARRASSING to him, and lose him some of the headmaster’s trust (which he doesn’t actually deserve because he’s been lying to the man for years anyway). But hey, it’s only Harry’s life and the lives of other students that’s at stake, and the convict has only gotten into the school twice already...so no big deal.

So what’s the difference? Don’t kids in the Narnia books get up to mischief, too? Of course they do. Digory, one of the children, does something incredibly foolish, awakens an evil witch, and brings her into Narnia with him, ruining the newly creating world before it’s a day old. But there are consequences. He has to face Aslan and explain exactly what happened. He’s required to complete a task to help mend the damage. When Edmund sides with the White Witch against his family, he’s almost killed for it (They left that bit out of the movie, but the concept was there.), and Aslan has to die in his place. The kids in Narnia make mistakes, but there are always consequences, consequences which are frequently and curiously lacking in the Harry Potter stories.

When I have kids, I want them to know that God is the only acceptable source of supernatural power in this world. I don’t want to expose them to violent scenes before they’re old enough to deal with them. And I want them to know that there are consequences to the choices they make.

Anyone who’s lived a day in his life (or played summer football in a city park or worked out at a vibrant gym) has noticed that different races have different musculature and athletic talent. Blacks are the most ripped, and often the biggest, particularly in the deltoids and lats. They respond the fastest to resistance training and are amazingly agile on their feet, (something you have to marvel at the first time a black guy with the ball makes a cut around you).

Whites are the most varied, ranging from nerd skinny to hulking well-marbled powerlifter. Few whites can get as defined as blacks, so you really become aware of those white guys who do manage to carve their abs and delts well past the norm for their race. Whites also have wider waists than blacks, and tend to stockiness, although this is far from a universal white trait.

Asians are the slightest and the least toned, and are less varied in appearance than either blacks or whites, (although asian sub-groups, like Koreans, who hit the gym hard can become quite strong in compound movements like the squat that leverage their naturally lower center of gravity and shorter limbs).

Hispanics (or amerindians, if you prefer) resemble their asian progenitors in muscle tone, but not in gracility. And depending on how you define “hispanic”, their physical variance is either very large (think Spanish-Cuban vs Mestizo) or very small (the round mamacita millions).

All these racial differences in physique are far more noticeable in younger men (and women) than in older representatives, owing primarily to the fact that most people of any race get fatter and looser with age, the biological upkeep of their sexual dimorphism becoming less relevant beyond reproductive age, and this symptom of aging is greatly exacerbated by the Western obesity plague, especially in black women who get so enormously fat soon after leaving high school that you’d need a team of archaeologists to excavate evidence of their buried female form.

So, you’d have to be blind or a self-deluding status whoring SWPL leftoid to not notice these differences.

For a while, curious noticers wondering what accounted for their observations would assume that testosterone had something to do with it. After all, T and T mimics are injected by bodybuilders to build huge blocks of muscle. Naturally, one infers that the less muscular-looking races (if not necessarily the less strong) have lower levels of testosterone in their blood.

Are women biologically programmed to reward cruelty, evil and domination?
Of course any complaints that girls go for bad boys and jerks instantly labels one a nice guy beta males. To the extent that it is possible, I actually consider myself somewhat of an impartial outside observer. I was an omega jerk in JR and high school, and to an extent my whole psycho personality, worked and I had girls literally chasing me. A lot of it might have been self-delusion but some measures were objective. After that I was in nearly complete isolation in college. So I've never played the role of the bitter nice guy. I have NEVER done anything nice for a girl or anyone my entire life! So I think I have some claim to impartiality, and my position that my deep depression and heart anguish is purely on a metaphysical level.

I read a lot of PUA seduction Game literature. At first my logic was it pays to learn all tools of rhetoric, persuasion and oratory even if I intended to put it to different uses than PUA.

Anyway to put it at its simplest. In cavemen times women were just plaything rape slaves for the strongest ape. And that is what evolutionary psychology in chimpanzee and gorilla behavior proves. Now there might have been some brave women who defended their freedom to the death, but their selfish genes were lost to history. And the genes that all modern women have inherited is those who submit to the cruelest caveman with biggest club.

I don't know for me it is pretty hellish to live in a world where all men are sadists and all women are masochists.

According to PUA science male physical attractiveness barely matters at all, the only thing women find attractive is brute domination and sadism.

For the last year I've completely cut myself off from humanity. Who wants to live in a world of pure evil? Only evil is rewarded! Cruelty is the only virtue. What good is morality and ethics?

So I'd like an outside opinion do you feel that women are biologically programmed to reward cruelty, evil and domination?

Does the dating world going back to the new paleolithic age make life worthless?
Murdoch's theoretical journal which is the official ideology of America and thus the entire world has endorsed the evopsych worldview: The New Dating Game | The Weekly Standard

Now I'm sure no one will believe me, but this is NOT about me being a single virgin loser guy who can't get a date. More its about what kind of world we live in where evil is always rewarded. I can't live in a universe like that. Why bother to get a job and support oneself and live in brutal ruthless dog eat dog world of evil? My parents are going to throw me out in August since I wont get a job or school.

Its true I've always been kind of an anti-sexual puritan but evopsych just makes it more vicious. The Darwinian-Nietzschean struggle for existence means eat or be eaten, kill or be killed, harm or be harmed. I wish simply to neither dominate nor be dominated. But that is far too much to ask in this world on both counts.

I have no harmed anyone, except maybe my parents. My dad says I should be "altrusitic" and recover for my mom's sake.

First off my parents committed a massive injustice on me by bringing me into this cruel world just to satisfy that monster gene- Moloch.

Second them keeping me alive, is just their genes following their selfish interest to reproduce. I represent a major investment in their genes survival. My fall means a major decrease in their genese reproducing. So that is all there is to their so-called generosity to me. The longer they keep me fed, the longer the opportunity there is for me to pass their genes on. Granted thats a pretty miniscule chance for grandkids hiding and crying in the basement, but its higher than the chances if I starved on the street.

So what gratitude should I have to the selfish gene? The "altruism" in feeding and housing me is just the flip side of the selfishness of birthing me into an incredibly hellish universe.

Humanity wants to drive itself off a cliff. I listed my objections. Much wiser men than me have listed them in thick textbooks. Humanity wont listen to the wise men and certainly not to me. So fine. I have said my peace. Let humanity drive off the cliff, but I want no part in the adventure.

I feel nothing for disgust for humanity. But thats what the Darwinian struggle for existence. Brutality is the only virtue. I'm what the Nazis would call life unworthy of life. Even if your content to be a lifelong virgin girls rewarding "bad boy" traits still affects the world you live in. I could not be more repulsed by humanity which is why I have cut myself off in complete isolation for nearly a year now. Would life be better, and free of despair if I saw other humans as unthinking moving objects instead of minds ?

From studying evopsych I have grown deeply disturbed and hateful of humanity. A bunch of sadistic beasts, red in tooth and claw, angling for domination. I wish to never see another human being ever again. I've cut myself off for over a year hiding in the basement till my parents throw me out.

Maybe it be better if I was unaware of humans possessing other minds. If I viewed them as rocks, chairs, hurricanes, viruses. Then I would have no more hate towards victimizers and sympathy towards victims than I hate cancer or a hurricane. Or pity for a dead tree. Just look at humans as moving objects on the landscape.

Would that make things better?

Well in essence this IS about relationships. That is where evolutionary psychology is most obvious in daily life. While it is true I have no human relations, I'm still affected by the sexual stock market, the same way someone who owns no stock can be ruined by a crash.

Psychologists are humans like the rest of us, driven by the reptilian urges for sex and power and domination. There career choice is just there way of gaining domination in the Darwinian game. So I don't see therapists as some elite priestly caste free from evopsych. I don't want to be "fixed" into better being able to play the evolutionary game.

Since everyone here accepts the basic premises of evopsych, I ask how do YOU folks deal with it? Or do you all just accept the game, and try to be the winner? IF thats the case, then maybe your right and there can not be any dialogue between me and humanity.

I don't understand how the rest of humanity can endure such a world and assume its because they must ALL be blood-thirsty vampires themselves.

Although why glorify women as the victims? According to evopsych even when given freedom they will reward cruelty.

So there are no victims in this monstrous world just wolves eating wolves.

How do you endure this world? And what is your advice for me?

What good would having a girlfriend do me? Is the chimpanzee in me supposed to rejoice that as low as I may be in the hierarchy, I still have someone below me who I can hurt, torment, dominate and abuse?


I have no problem being driven out of the sexual marketplace. The problem is what "service" are we competing for? And it seems in the sexual market it is who can be the most brutal and cruel. Evopsych says getting a girlfriend comes down to demonstrating cruelty, domination, brutality, and sadism.


That is all I see in male-female relations and PUa science backs up my personal observations.

Beginning in 1930, an unprecedented ecological disaster of Biblical proportions overwhelmed the former Louisiana Territory.

It is called the Dust Bowl, and was the worst man-made disaster in the history of the United States. Because it was concentrated into the brief period of 10 years, it could be the worst environmental disaster in the entire history of the world!!

Weather warfare is the most diabolically clever form of warfare because no nation can prove beyond a doubt that it is under attack. What is required to nail the war criminals is motive and method....The British have never lacked a motive to destroy the United States . . . and Tesla Technology gave them the method.

[...]

The weird weather began in 1926, with unprecedented rainfall in the former Louisiana Territory, causing the Mississippi River to overflow.

7 states were affected, causing widespread destruction.

The timing of the flood was most propitious for Herbert Hoover.

In another strange "coincidence." the Great Flood launched the political career of a "mining engineer" and British spy named Herbert Hoover. Hoover ran against Al Smith in the crucial 1928 Presidential election:

Now Coolidge had to act. At a cabinet meeting the morning after the crevasse, he named Commerce Secretary Herbert Hoover chairman of a special committee of five cabinet secretaries to coordinate all rescue and relief efforts. Coolidge also gave Hoover authority to issue orders to the Army and Navy. (Barry, Rising Tide, p. 240).
After his appointment by President Coolidge, newspapers all over the country began extolling Hoover and his great "humanitarian" efforts to rescue millions of acres from the Mississippi River floods.

Miracle of miracles....The Great Flood came just in time to launch the Presidential career of "Wonder Boy" Herbert Hoover.

After Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, Hoover was the 3rd British spy to occupy the White House.

As an MI6 agent, Hoover's code name was Wonder Boy and his cover was "mining engineer."

As a "Quaker," Hoover certainly did not use voodoo to make it rain....So we are only left with 2 options: Hoover prayed for the unprecedented rainfall to get him into the White House, or it was weather warfare courtesy of his bosses in London. Darwinian evolutionists and agnostics deny that miracles happen . . . so we are only left with the second option!!

[...]

In a 9-month series of experiments during the year 1899, Nikola Tesla demonstrated the feasibility of sending large quantities of electricity to any point on the earth from his lab in Pike's Peak, Colorado. His only goal was the peaceful use of electricity to light and power the world.

It is not beyond conjecture that the British were studying the use of electricity as a weapon of war long before the discoveries of Tesla. As far back as 1750, British spy Benjamin Franklin (code name Moses and code number 72) was famous for proving that lightning is electricity.

The huge quantity of electricity required for weather warfare came from the Tesla designed Niagara Chippawa power station.

A broadcast tower located close to the U.S. border was disguised as a Marconi broadcast tower.

Never in the entire history of mankind was such a diabolical scheme implemented!!

Nikola Tesla's 3 great inventions were:

1. Rotating magnetic field . . . which electrified the entire world!!
2. Wireless or radio broadcasts. Later called the "Marconi" broadcasting system.
3. Wireless transmission of electricity to any point on the earth.
British spy J.P. Morgan, and his lapdog Thomas Edison, did their utmost to stop the electrification of the world. It is called the War of the Currents and lasted from 1885 to 1912.

British spy Guglielmo Marconi–the founder of the British Marconi Company–stole the plans for wireless or radio.

The 3rd great invention–potent with military implications–became the exclusive property of the Bank of England and the British army. Later on they would share it with the Pentagon to be used against Russia!!

Question 1 - Why wont God heal amputees?

My answer - He DOES! I have witnessed a mans leg growing out before my eyes as the power of God healed him. Another man we know had his feet amputated from an accident. The Lord spoke to him and told him to go into the shoe store and pick out a pair of shoes...........any size. He did. The Lord then told him to put his stumps into the shoes and as he did, new feet grew into the shoes. God is indeed a miracle worker, He DOES heal amputees, so this question is a moot point.

Goodloe Sutton #racist alternet.org

On February 14, the Democrat-Reporter, a local newspaper in Linden, Alabama, ran a hideous editorial calling for the return of the KKK. On Monday, publisher Goodloe Sutton confirmed that he was the author of the racist screed, according to the Montgomery Advertiser.

“Time for the Ku Klux Klan to night ride again,” wrote Sutton. “Democrats in the Republican Party and Democrats are plotting to raise taxes in Alabama … this socialist-communist idealogy [sic] sounds good to the ignorant, the uneducated, and the simple minded people.”

“Slaves, just freed after the civil war, were not stupid. At times, they borrowed their former masters’ robes and horses and rode through the night to frighten some evil doer. Sometimes they had to kill one or two of them, but so what,” continued Sutton. “Seems like the Klan would be welcome to raid the gated communities up there. They call them compounds now. Truly, they are the ruling class.”

When confronted by the Advertiser, Sutton was completely unremorseful and actually doubled down, suggesting the KKK should start lynching people again.

“If we could get the Klan to go up there and clean out D.C., we’d all been better off,” said Sutton. “We’ll get the hemp ropes out, loop them over a tall limb and hang all of them.” The population of Washington, D.C. is 48 percent African-American.

It’s not bad to lynch people in D.C., said Sutton, because “these are socialist-communists we’re talking about. Do you know what socialism and communism is?” The KKK, he added, “didn’t kill but a few people” and “wasn’t violent until they needed to be.”

CH #sexist heartiste.wordpress.com

The leftoid legacy media, salesmen, and pickup artists have something in common: they all use framing as a powerful rhetoric weapon to lock in friendlies, persuade fence-sitters, and demoralize belligerents.

Framing — that is, perception management — is a staple of the leftstream media. It’s the most useful rhetorical gambit the media has at its disposal for enforcing its Anti-White Man Narrative. And the media manlet journolisters use it all the time. Example (via):

" Studies also show that although female politicians have a wide range of positions, they often are more compassionate, better at working across the aisle and more willing to compromise, qualities intricately bound in successful policymaking.

A big part of the lie is the framing. Could just as easily write: “Female politicians are more emotional, less principled, and more likely to sacrifice political concerns.” I guess that wouldn’t be “intricately bound” (?) (???) enough."

Almost always, the Leftoid media has to reframe from a more factual interpretation to a less factual DISinterpretation of the evidence at hand. This is because the modern Left’s moral pyramid is built on a foundation of Equalism Lies. Therefore, every story has to be twisted into a sophistic slander of actual events and actual data to fit their preconceived Narrative: Whites suck, and White Men suck the most.

This is why the media — staffed, keep in mind, almost entirely by race and sex denialist liberals — can plausibly claim to avoid outright lying in their agitprop copy; they aren’t presenting blatantly false info (although they do that too; see UVA rape hoax or Jayson Blair) so much as they’re reconfiguring and retconning real information into a photo negative of the truth.

The Wage Gap is a prime example. The leftist media frames it with the omnipresent implication that Dirty White Men are the evildoers preventing women from making more than 78 cents to The Man’s dollar, when an un-framed reporting of the Wage Gap would clearly and incontrovertibly lay the cause at the truth: that women prefer lower-paying occupations than do men, women work on average fewer hours, and women slow their career advancement with motherhood. And that under all these TRUEFACTS is the compelling ür-truth of biologically innate sex differences in psychology, temperament, and behavior.

But man o man would that kind of reporting BLOW equalist shitlib minds. And since the media is 99% equalist shitlib, that means a self-mindblowing. How many people do you know who voluntarily stomp their own egos without immense pressure from outside antagonists?

The leftoid media fuggernaut demonstrates the awesome power of framing to control perceptions and even trigger mass psychoses (“Trump is Hitler”). But we dedicated womanizers and practitioners of the Crimson Arts knew this all along; framing is just as powerful at controlling the perceptions of pretty girls and seducing them into bed.

...

The leftoid media is engaged in a massive reframing of reality to seduce Americans into believing 2 + 2 = 5. They have been winning for 70 odd years, but finally — finally! — a woke wave of dissidents to the anti-White orthodoxy have begun appropriating the media’s Rhetoric psy ops and coupling it with Realtalk cogdis to succeed, for the first time in recent memory, in undermining and exposing the media’s information distortion field.

I doubt I’m going out on limb when I say that the rise of Game in the late 90s had a big impact on the nascent anti-globalism revolutionaries who would many years later help vault a billionaire playboy with a knack for reframing into the White House.

The curtain is now being pulled back to fully expose the Khazarian Mafia and it’s evil plan to infiltrate, tyrannize the whole World and eradicate all Abrahamic Religions and allow only their Babylonian Talmudism also known as Luciferianism, Satanism or ancient Baal worship.

The present day Khazarian Mafia (KM) knows that it cannot operate or exist without abject secrecy and therefore has spent a lot of money having its history excised from the history books in order to prevent citizens of the World from learning about its “Evil beyond imagination” that empowers this World’s largest Organized Crime Cabal. The authors of this article have done their best to resurrect this lost, secret history of the Khazarians and their large International Organized Crime Syndicate best referred to as the Khazarian Mafia (KM) and make this history available to the World via the Internet, the new Gutenberg Press.

It has been exceedingly difficult to reconstruct this hidden secret history of the Khazarian Mafia (KM) so please excuse any minor inaccuracies or errors which are unintentional and are due to the difficulty digging out the true history of Khazaria and the Khazarian Mafia (KM). We have done the best we can reconstructing it.

It was Mike Harris that connected the dots and made the actual discovery of the presence of the Khazarian Mafia’s secret history and blood oath to take complete revenge on Russia and the Russians for helping Americans win the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, and their blood oath of revenge against America and Americans for winning these wars.

At the Syrian Conference on Combating Terrorism and Religious Extremism December 1, 2014, in his Keynote address Veterans Today Senior Editor and Director Gordon Duff disclosed publicly for the first time ever that World Terrorism is actually due to a large International Organized Crime Syndicate associated with Israel. This disclosure sent shock-waves at the Conference and almost instantly around the World, as almost every World Leader received reports of Gordon Duff’s historical disclosure that same day, some within minutes. And the shockwaves from his historic speech at Damascus continue to reverberate around the whole World even to this very day.

We now know that the Khazarian Mafia (KM) is waging a secret war against America and Americans by the use of False-Flag Gladio-Style Terrorism, the illegal and Unconstitutional Federal Reserve System, the IRS, the FBI, FEMA, Homeland Security and the TSA. We now know for certain that the Khazarian Mafia(KM) was responsible for deploying an inside-job, Gladio-style False-Flag attack on America on 9-11-01 as well as the Murrah Bombing earlier 0n April 19, 1995.
The Hidden History of the incredibly Evil Khazarian Mafia

100-600 AD – an incredibly Evil Society Emerges in Khazaria:

Khazarians develop into a nation ruled by an incredibly Evil King with an ancient Babylonian Black Arts occult Oligarchy serving as his Court. During this time Khazaria become known to surrounding countries as thieves, murderers, road bandits, and for assuming the identities of those travelers they murder as a normal occupational practice and way of life.

600 AD – The Ultimatum is delivered by Russia and other surrounding nations:

The leaders of the surrounding nations, especially Russia have had so many years of Complaints by their citizens that as a group they deliver an ultimatum to the Khazarian King. They send a communique to the Khazarian King that he must choose one of the three Abrahamic religions for his people and make it his official state religion and require all Khazarian Citizens to Practice it and socialize all Khazarian Children to practice that faith.

The Khazarian King was given A choice between Islam, Christianity and Judaism. The Khazarian King chose Judaism and promised to stay within the requirements laid out by the surrounding confederacy of nations led by the Russian Czar. Despite his agreement and promise the Khazarian king and his inner circle of Oligarchs kept practicing ancient Babylonian Black-Magic also known as Secret Satanism. This Secret Satanism involved black-magic occult ceremonies featuring child sacrifice after “bleeding them out”, drinking their blood and eating their hearts.

The deep dark secret of these secret occult ceremonies was that they were all based on ancient Baal Worship, also known as worship of the Owl. In order to fool the confederacy of nations led by Russia which were watching Khazaria, the Khazarian King melded these Luciferian Black-Magick practices with Judaism and created a Satanic hybrid secret religion known as Babylonian Talmudism. This was made the national religion of Khazaria and inculcated the same evil that Khazaria was known for before.

Sadly the Khazarians continued their evil ways robbing, murdering those from other surrounding countries who traveled through Khazaria. Khazarian robbers often and often attempted to assume their identities after they murdered these visitors and became masters of disguises and false identities, a practice they have continued even to this very day along with their secret child-sacrifice occult ceremonies which are actually ancient Baal Worship.

1,000 AD – Russia and the surrounding nations have had enough and take action:

In about 1,000 AD the Russian led a group of nations surrounding Khazaria and invaded it in order to stop the incredibly Khazarian crimes against their people which included kidnapping of their young children and infants for their child sacrifice ceremonies to Baal. Th Khazarian King and his inner court of criminals and murderers came to be known as the Khazarian Mafia (KM) by neighboring countries.

The Khazarian King and his court plotted eternal revenge against Russia and the surrounding countries:
The Khazarian King and his Court (aka the Khazarian Mafia plotted eternal revenge against the Russians and the surrounding nations that invaded Khazaria them and drove them from power.

The Khazarian leaders had a well- developed spy network through which they obtained prior warning and escaped from Khazaria to European nations to the west, taking their vast fortune with them in Gold and silver. They laid low and regrouped while assuming new identities. In secret they continued their Satanic child blood and sacrifice rituals and trusted Baal to give them the whole World and all its riches as they claimed he had promised them as long as they kept bleeding out and sacrificing children and infants for Baal.

The Khazarian Mafia invades England after being expelled for hundreds of years:The curtain is now being pulled back to fully expose the Khazarian Mafia and it’s evil plan to infiltrate, tyrannize the whole World and eradicate all Abrahamic Religions and allow only their Babylonian Talmudism also known as Luciferianism, Satanism or ancient Baal worship.

[An article describing the story of Saint Simon of Trent, a 16th century boy allegedly killed by members of the city's Jewish community]

In 1588 Pope Sixtus regularized the devotions to Simon, giving his full and unqualified approval. Later in February 1755, Pope Benedict XIV cited it in his work, On The Canonization of Saints, and issued the Bull, Beatus Andreas, which gave full sanction and approval to the sainthood of Simon as well as the earlier martyr, Andreas of Rinn. In the late 1500s, Pope Gregory XIII visited St. Simon’s Shrine during the famous counter-Reformation Councils of Trent. During that time, hundreds of Cardinals, Bishops and Priests must have visited all the churches of Trent, including St. Simon’s tomb. This was a rarely disputed case. The Holy Church always affirmed the truth of the matter.

That is, until 1965, when Saint Simon was gravely dishonored. In a stunning move, Archbishop Alessandro Gotardi of the Diocese of Trent, in a sacrificial gesture to the prelates of political correctness declared that the Jews were innocent. This culminated years of work and pressure from liberal historians, operating in the climate of “openness” created by the Vatican Two Council, presided over by “the Ecumenical Pope," Paul VI. As a result of the decree of the Archbishop, the Vatican Congregation of Rites forbade the veneration of relics or the saying of masses in Simon’s name. This was an affront to the truth as well as a total depreciation of the five hundred years of prayer and devotion by devout Catholics to the little saint. Yet even in this climate of liberalism, it became clear that the Vatican had no intention of opening any more records into ritual murder cases.

Perhaps the Jews and liberals were gratified with the Church’s pitiful kowtowing to political correctness as the controversy began to subside. Maybe the church viewed de-canonization of too many saints at once as destabilizing. Nonetheless, the Ritual Murder Deniers celebrated a significant victory. One of the most famous and renowned cases of all was overturned and expunged.

And what, you may well ask, was the new evidence that cleared the conspirators in such an outrageous conclusion? Surprisingly there was no new evidence at all! The verdict was overturned because torture was used in the investigation. No one actually disproved anything. The evidence was deemed inadmissible under standards not even thought of 500 years ago. Shouldn’t we absolve all the murderers of old on the same basis? It appears that no one explored this possibility, and they never will because it is absurd. Nonetheless the liberals won their victory. No more explaining was necessary. As for the victim and the cause of justice? They did not address these concerns in 1965. Superfluous to say, we are thoroughly disgusted by the actions of a clique of deceitful court historians with an obvious ax to grind. We hope that some honest residents of Trent might build a new memorial to Little Simon, once deemed blessed, but this will probably never happen. We shall not wait and hold our breath, to be sure. Moreover, we do not have to wait at all. We can make our own memorial, right here, right now. This article is dedicated to historical truth and to the forgotten little murder victim, killed by a cult of pedophiles. If you are a religious person, please add your prayers. March 24 is his feast day.

PRAISE AND HONOR TO SAINT SIMON OF TRENT,

A LITTLE BOY BRUTALLY SLAIN BEFORE THE AGE OF THREE,

NOT LEFT IN PEACE, BUT TWICE MARTYRED.

ONCE BY HIS BESTIAL AND BLOODTHIRSTY KILLERS

AND THEN DECANONIZED, DISHONORED AND DISRESPECTED ON THE

SACRIFICIAL ALTAR OF POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS CORRECTNESS.

Requiescat In Pace

THE ROMAN CHURCH AND RITUAL BLOOD CRIMES.

Blessed Simon was certainly not the only ritual murder martyr saint. Even though the Church disowned two of the most prominent, there are several others. Are these once venerated saints now just “holy stepchildren”, forever cast out of Catholic heaven? Apparently neither the Church nor the Jews want to talk about them. It would be embarrassing to say the least to admit that the infallible Vatican made misjudgments and mistakes in the cases . Is there any way that at least some of these children were not genuine victims of a pedophile murder cult? It seems unlikely, to say the least. Here are some of the best-known.

[List of similar cases of alleged Jewish ritual murder]

And never believe, even for a moment, that it does not still happen, deep in the dark, demonic depths of the occult underground, in the secret Synagogues of Satan, because it does!

Jesus Christ is the way #fundie godlikeproductions.com

I don't know about about William, but there is no doubt that Obama is the 7th king of the mystery babylon lineage. The 8th is yet to come. How that happens will be a mystery to those who are immersed in the curse.

The curse is to believe in the lie of reincarnation. There are seven spirits before the throne and look at what Christ said. From bible hub.com Matthew 12:Return of an Unclean Spirit
…44"Then it says, 'I will return to my house from which I came'; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. 45"Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation."

Now look at what the resurrected Christ did with Mary Magdalene. From bible hub.com Mark 16:Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene
9Now after He had risen early on the first day of the week, He first appeared to Mary Magdalene, from whom He had cast out seven demons. 10She went and reported to those who had been with Him, while they were mourning and weeping.…

We are to be reborn in water and spirit through Christ. The shackles of a flesh and blood existence can only be removed by Jesus Christ. We are made anew and given a Book of Life name. Here is what happens if you do not receive a Book of Life name. From bible hub.com Revelation 13:The Beast Out of the Sea
…7It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him. 8All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain. 9If anyone has an ear, let him hear.…

In the coming parousia, the world is going to awaken to eternal life through Christ or eternal damnation. Those who follow the spirit of sodom and egypt are doomed.The akashic records of this cursed 666 matrix will try to be validated by the false deities on earth. The 8th process for darkness is the unholy resurrection of the false sun god, apollo or apollyon. The end product is the son of satan.

satan fell to earth as samayaza per the book of Enoch. He was cast to mount zaphon which is also known as mont aqraa. Hence you have the acropolis. The big lie will be the merging of greek mythology with egyptology to produce a visible demonic hierarchy that rules the earth for 42 months as the gates of hell prevail.

Revelation 2 tells you that satan's throne is at pergamum which is in Turkey. The flag over the country is for islam which is poised to be brought into and consumed by the biggest lie of all time which is satan. The five pointed star is for lucifer. It represents the false morning star which is Venus. Venus returns to its original place in the celestial sky exactly every 40 years. In that 40 years, the Earth aligns with Venus and the Sun 5 times and a perfect pentagram is formed. Note that satanists use the goat of mendes (the beast) in the middle of an inverted pentagram which is opposite of love which is lust. This 40 year period is used throughout the bible. In fact, all of those in the exodus who were born in egypt were not allowed to see the Promised Land. Instead, there were purged from the ranks in a 40 year wandering process.

From bible hub.com Revelation 11:8And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. So, you see what prevails in spirit over Jerusalem during the 42 month reign of the antichrist. The purging process of 40 years applies to root source. Look at what God says about egypt. From bible hub.com Ezekiel 29:The Desolation of Egypt
…11"A man's foot will not pass through it, and the foot of a beast will not pass through it, and it will not be inhabited for forty years. 12"So I will make the land of Egypt a desolation in the midst of desolated lands. And her cities, in the midst of cities that are laid waste, will be desolate forty years; and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands." 13'For thus says the Lord GOD, "At the end of forty years I will gather the Egyptians from the peoples among whom they were scattered.…

For the spirit of egypt and sodom to be drawn back to its source for total destruction by the one, true God, then it must prevail over the final evil, adulterous generation. In the final piece of the mystery babylon puzzle look for what has grown from the weeds (spiritual egypt) to be destroyed by prophecy. From Jeremiah 46:19Pack your belongings for exile, you who live in Egypt, for Memphis will be laid waste and lie in ruins without inhabitant. This applies to current day, and many will ask how. Christ said you shall know a tree by the fruit it bears. If it is of the mystery babylon tree then it bears mystery babylon fruit.

The 90th degree of egyptian masonry is the rite of memphis. It has been established that the 666 coded geographical coordinates are of babylonian design. Memphis, TN is on 90WLon. It will follow the same fate as the New Madrid faultline wakes up. If you use the Washington Monument as the center of the egyptian masonry compass then 666 statute miles lands slightly east of Cairo, Illinois (Sion backwards and "Ill" both ways). It is known as little egypt. The Ohio River converges with the Mississippi which says I am Isis and pi both ways. The river is mentioned here. From bible hub.com Revelation 12: 15And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood.

Many people ask why there are so many tornadoes and hurricanes that gravitate towards the Bible Belt of the US. First understand this. The chosen are those chosen spiritually. Without accepting Christ as a Savior, no one including the natural Jew can reach Heaven. Those who have accepted Christ as Savior are really the chosen ones which is the church, the bride.

What the final piece of the puzzle has created in clear view as the US is a place where both blessing and curse exist. Spiritual egypt (the weeds) has been allowed to grow with the spiritual wheat which is the true Israel. These two are soon to be separated. As a result of the US being in part spiritual Israel and particularly in the bible belt, the judgment comes quick and first. The spiral clouds of destruction are cast into the natural as the scales of justice and judgment are tipped.

When Israel encountered babylonian captivity during Jeremiah's time the ark of the covenant was removed by the help of an egyptian princess and first carried to Tara, Ireland then on to the US. It is now in ARK-ansas (ansa means rings of saturn).

So why would anybody assume because someone says that God doesn't heal amputees that he hates them.

Yeah I looked at the site, are you suggesting that the site is objectively seeking truth or pushing a view. Some of us here call that propaganda.

We have a sign over the entrance doors in our home that says, "Whoever enters this home is covered with the Blood of JESUS". Sounds weird, you say! Well, one experience that Elizabeth had will show you that there is power in those words. Some years ago she worked in an office that was on the main street in Meridian, Mississippi. Meridian had several people that walked the streets of Meridian asking for handouts. There were a few that, from their actions and appearances, had insanity demons. Well, some of these insane people would just walk in her office. She was the secretary/receptionist and worked in the front office. They would come in for no reason and seemingly cause no harm. They would ask for money or coffee, etc. She put one of these notes over the doorway. No one could see it, but it was there. After placing that note over the door those same people stopped coming into her office. They would come to the door and open it but they would not come through the door. Soon all of them stopped coming in. Praise the Lord!

Brand New Bible for the "New Age" (shortened)

"And it came to pass, after several billion years (give or take several hundred million), the sun decided to accidentally throw out Uranus, Pluto, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, etc., in different sizes at different distances with different atmospheres. In thus doing, it also accidentally threw out an Earth, which (accidentally) formed water and plants out of molten lava. After a few billion years (give or take several hundred million, either way), an accidental combination of elements got together and accidentally formed a genetic code chain that could dictate what kind of life would be produced. Whereupon this accidentally produced a one-celled animal which couldn't produce a two-celled animal (or a three, or four, or five, or six celled, etc., animal).

"And thus it came to pass that over 20,000 species of animals were produced accidentally, to no purpose, and man was one of them. And evolution took the planaria that it had made from a paramecium, and created a jellyfish and brought it to a nonsexed, neuter, hermaphrodite and called it ~woman.~ (Or protozoa, coelenterata, platyhelminthes, or ctenophora: evolution only knows!) And evolution said, 'It is not good for the monkey to be alone. I will make a mate for him.' So it accidentally made 'Lucey' for 'Magic,' and he called her 'Baby' because she was taken out of a monkey.

"And after 6,000 years of killing, cannibalism, torture, murder, embezzlement, fraud, famine, Iying, swearing, cheating, stealing, and killing the monkey (or femur, or tarsier, or whatever) accidentally decided he had 'rights' that came from the spermatophytes, thallophytes, bryophytes, and ptendophytes, so he gave himself the right to cheat, abort, swear, lie, misrepresent, steal, pervert, extort, defraud, torture, and kill and called these rights, 'Civil Rights.'

"Today, at the very pinnacle of creation, the monkey (or 'great ape,' or 'hominoid,' or whatever) is 'the measure of all things.' He verily 'hash arrived.' He now knows why he came into being, accidentally; it was to please himself. At last he hath a goal: to make himself comfortable. In the next seven years, this will be done by perversion, extortion, rape, drug abuse, Iying, swearing, embezzlement, cheating, cannibalism, terrorism, perversion and killing, evolution willing!

"Even so, may the fittest survive! Amen! "

sorry not sorry, but just as i refuse to waste my time "validating" the bespoke misogynist "identities" of mtts, i refuse to waste my time "validating" the at-maximum two good things any handmaiden's personal nigel has done in his lifetime. like, a few dudes have eaten you out until you came? great, shitheads can take a bow before they get the shepherd's crook. otherwise they have treated you like a woman: stolen your labor, and, as individual representatives of the the illustrious firm of Male Supremacy and Sons, horizontally integrated your mind, your body, and your time to please and enrich the other shareholders.

if you want to provide me with concrete examples of redeeming features of men, then i am willing to listen. but the "not all men" rhetoric that my half-assed re-iteration of basic radical feminist principles seems to have provoked in you comes across as a pre-emptive strike against having to answer that question. there is not exactly an abundance of anecdotes or data on the positive things men have to offer women in this world, here in this ostensibly feminist forum or in non-feminist or anti-feminist ones or in history or literally anywhere. please think about what that silence means before you send me another message telling me i'm not whispering sweetly enough into our oppressor's ear.

"Why is the Japanese population dwindling?"

Because Japanese women want jobs and independence, and Japanese men want to fuck anime pillows and rubber dolls. That is literally why. Japanese men are angry that women are growing spines so instead they imagine super cute little girl voices for their sex dolls and envision anime life for themselves while the real world passes them by.

"My son accepts it, my daughter can't." Yeah that's because your son is another man who's probably going to end up in the same sorry situation and your daughter is freaked out that you're a worthless dude who wants a quiet fuck object as a life partner instead of a human being.

(86023485)
Women want jobs and independence in all modernized countries, but fake fantasy fuck toys for men haven't taken off to the same level in any other country I've seen. This "herbivore" culture is like MTGOW only more widespread and possibly even creepier.

I suspect the real reason is a bit more complicated than that. Maybe it has something to do with overpopulation. Japan is one of the densest populated industrialized countries in the world. But population can't grow forever, especially not in places as dense as Japan.

(IceIceKitty)
The arguement I've heard against it is that men will just practice their violent fantasies on these dolls and then move on to hurt real women, same argument behind not selling child sex dolls, same argument behind not watching pornography. People believe rape porn will sate rapists but actually it just fuels their obsession. I read something where the repairers of these sex dolls say they often find stab wounds and hacked off limbs. Creepy shit. We don't fear it for the reason they think though, it would be great if they actually left women alone but I don't think it would happen quite like that. Especially considering here we have yet another man forcing his fetish on his family.

(Elle_Ciel)
The argument is pretty simple: porn is addictive. It's no different than anything else that fucks up your brain chemistry. If a man is already obsessed to this degree, he's pretty far along into an addiction to begin with. There's no satiating them with fantasies forever. Once they get bored of the dolls, they'll need to up the ante to get the same high. They'll destroy their lives and hurt other people to satisfy a compulsive urge.

Either we start treating those desires as inherently sick and in need of serious treatment, or we'll have to deal with perverts after they turn into serial killer pedophiles.

HA! Totally agree. I thought I would be sad when my divorce was finalized, but my biggest dream now is to eventually move out of my city into a teeny little cottage somewhere and have a little spinster's paradise. I could happily live without dating or having another relationship, and I can think of at least 3 or 4 friends who have told me they feel the same way. I'd be insanely happy with a Golden Girls-esqe future.

I don't think men realize just how many women feel the same way. Fewer men hassling me when I walk down the sidewalk or DMing me out of nowhere because they think there's a remote possibility they could laid from it? Fewer angry men shitting up the internet with their misplaced rage against women? Yes please!

(throwiesdg)
That's the thing- I love sex! I have a healthy sex drive, I'm straight, and I'm relatively young. You'd think with all those factors I'd be the exact type of woman who would never want to be alone. Yet still, the upsides of living with my ex never quite outweighed the downsides. I'll never again leave a freshly cleaned home only to return to a mess, or have to do someone's laundry, shampoo a stained carpet for the 3rd time in a month, or come home late to find that he's still waiting for me to cook a meal when I'd be so much happier eating a bowl of cereal and going to bed. Knowing this makes me so happy :)

My grandfather passed a few months ago, and I swear my Grandma still hasn't shed a single tear. It's not that she didn't love him, but it was soooo exhausting for her to cook, clean, and care for him that his passing felt like an enormous weight off her shoulders. I feel the same way about my ex (and most men, to be honest). I still love him and wish him the best, he's a good man, but a terrible partner and I'll pray for the poor woman who gets him next. Nowadays I see my grandma spending her days going to craft fairs with her ladies group, having luncheons, volunteering at church, etc and she seems so fulfilled and happy. I knew I didn't want to wait 40 years to live my life the same way

(susandeath)
I have to say I really do love my bf but its awesome to only see him once a week. Its often enough to satisfy my sex drive and I get the added bonus of only having to do extra cooking and cleaning once a week and its not that much because I'd be cooking for myself anyway.

I don't see myself ever wanting to move in with someone.

(qwertypoiuytre)
I would fully support the production and selling (even giving away for free?) of sex dolls or robots if they came with some stipulation as being only available for use on some remote island (or spaceship? planet?) and men upon going there could never come back. I think my proposed program would only create positive benefits for the rest of humanity.

(LittleOwl12)
Japanese men are a little infamous for their bullshit attitudes against women. It explains a lot of creepy anime.

Asian women have a very high rate of "marrying out" and I'm guessing a lot of it has to do with their feminism is outpacing the men's. I know that a lot of people are concerned that the extreme work hours have actually harmed people's abilities to interact with each other intimately. So there's been a counter-culture of young men who try to cut their hours short, help out with the kids and spend time with their wives and families. And change diapers! Clearly this loser didn't get on board. But points to the ones that do. They tend to be healthier and happier. Go figure.

Hi,

What the surgeon is doing it attacking a healthy organ, the man’s breasts, and mutilating them. There is no disease there. This is immoral and a sin.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: “Except when performed for strictly therapeutic medical reasons, directly intended amputations, mutilations, and sterilizations performed on innocent persons are against the moral law.” It quotes Densinger 3722 here.

So yes, I suggest that you refuse.

Attention all Jews

You do not get an opinion on circumcision.
You are mentally compromised, indoctrinated in the belief that sexual abuse of infants is the only way your bloodthirsty god will grant you his favor.

You are the ONLY religion that demands this blood sacrifice, other religions justify it through poor interpretations, but yours is the one with the holy book that DEMANDS this blood ritual inflicted on infants.

So when the topic of circumcision of healthy, non consenting infants and children pops up, step the fuck aside. You have no authority to speak of it due to your inability to look at it for what it really is….

UNNECESSARY AMPUTATION OF HEALTHY, FUNCTIONAL, AND PLEASURABLE PARTS OF A NON-CONSENTING PERSON.

And if you consider anything i say to be anti-Semitic, then you are guilty of crying wolf. Every single living person deserves protection from forced amputative mutilation, EVEN BOYS BORN IN JEWISH FAMILIES.

Avoid Trauma
Trauma is the second leading cause of limb loss. Less discriminate in its choice of body members, trauma can result in the destruction of any body part. However, a godly view of life can do much to reduce a person's risk of trauma. Whether working, driving, or enjoying recreation, Christians should treat their bodies as a gift from God. Thus, they would want to respect all safety requirements and avoid taking foolish risks.
