We received an email today: “I had an opportunity to attend a Bill Nye book signing in Paramus, New Jersey last night. He reacted as if he had never seen this tract. The tract's banana illustration, "The Atheist's Nightmare," amused him. He was good natured and told me that he was going to read it. God Bless, Robert.”

It sounds like Bill Nye has more of a sense of humor than the average atheist. God bless him.

Over a million copies of “The Atheist Test” have sold. It not only shows that atheism is “senseless” (Sir Isaac Newton’s choice of words), but it shows how it’s scientifically impossible for any person to be an atheist.

Specifically, there's a suffragette in Saint Denis, the game’s analogue for New Orleans, who is campaigning for her right to vote. She stands on a public street with a sign and sash and loudly proclaims, "Let me vote." One of the main reasons Red Dead Redemption 2 is such an interesting game is that it allows the player to approach and resolve situations in a variety of ways. Players can shoot, rob, talk to, and beat up almost any character they see, which at times leads to surprising outcomes. It's this same design that allowed a YouTuber going by the handle Shirrako to upload a video of himself walking up to that suffragette and punching her unconscious. The video, titled "Red Dead Redemption 2 - Beating Up Annoying Feminist," was uploaded on October 28 and currently has 1.2 million views.

Shirrako, perhaps because they saw how popular the video became, quickly followed it up with a video of them trying to feed the suffragette to an alligator and another of them lassoing and leaving her on the train tracks to get hit by a train.

The comments on these videos, as you might expect, are horrible. Some users think it's hilarious, others say that this is what every feminist deserves, while others complain about how alimony laws favor women and echo other "men's rights" talking points.

"I killed that lady too," user Joker Productions, a channel with over 120,000 subscribers, wrote. "Every time I went to the tailor right there I had to listen to her yapping. Got fed up so I took her to lunch... except the only thing served was buckshot. "

"You could take this small portion of the game, stretch it to full AAA game length, charge me $60 for it, and I'd pre-order it with a season pass," a user named Silly Goose wrote.

JESUS WAS A JEW - AND YOU KILLED HIM!

The Jews killed Jesus. That fact will never change. They have never repented, and they try to bully into silence anyone who states that fact.

They try to deflect this awful sin by saying, “Jesus was a Jew.” Yes – he was. And the Jews killed him.
Paul the Apostle – also a Jew -- said, the Jews did not attain to righteousness because they “sought it not by faith,” and instead established their own righteousness and did not submit themselves to the righteousness of God, Romans 8:31-32 & 9:1-4.
Only the ELECT JEWS will obtain righteousness, Romans 11:7. The APOSTATE REPROBATE JEWS have a vail on their heart when they read the Law of Moses, 2 Corinthians 3:13-15. And they forbad the apostles to speak to the Gentiles about salvation, “to fill up their sins always: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost,” 1 Thessalonians 2:14-16.

Jesus’ ministry of three-and-a-half years was to the lost house of Israel. But they would not obey, and they crucified him. When they did so, they screamed, “His blood be on us, and on our children,” Matthew 27:25. God hates Israel and her destruction is coming from God. You rebellious sinful Jews will NOT get a pass because Jesus was a Jew. The Jews killed Jesus!

Following up on Our Response

I’d encourage those of you who read this article to read the blog from The Northern Jester. It’s always good to read the opinions of others, especially so if they don’t line up with your views, and more importantly scripture. Personally, I regularly read the likes of Bart Ehrman and Elaine Pagels (and others), why? Because if we truly want to have a voice on any issue, we should have a balanced understanding of it from both sides of the fence.

Outside of my reply to the article, there isn’t too much to say here. Although I could go on for days picking apart this article, I’m not going to here. As I don’t think that’s fair to the writer. What I will say that wasn’t really mentioned in the reply I sent to the blog, is that if you are someone who wants to argue for the affirmation of homosexuality, then at least avoid the Jesus argument from silence. It’s not a good argument, as what always happens when using this is that you ignore what Jesus defines as marriage (one man and one woman) because you’re looking for Jesus uttering the word homosexual.

On that front allow me to share something I found rather recently in my research on this subject (something I’ve been doing for over 2 years now). In the gospel of Matthew, Jesus is found in many debates with the Pharisees and scribes. Chapter 15 is one such occasion, in verses 10-20 of that chapter Jesus zones in on the subject of what defiles us, where in verse 19 he says:

“For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander.” – Matthew 15:19 (ESV)

Logically the person arguing for the affirmation of homosexuality may look at the citing of this verse and ask why is this verse even being brought up. It doesn’t include the word homosexuality, so Jesus can’t be including it here. However, this shows a lack of understanding of the original language the New Testament was written in, Koine Greek. See the word we translate as sexual immorality is the word porneia. Here is a quick translation of the word:

illicit sexual intercourse
adultery, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, intercourse with animals etc.
sexual intercourse with close relatives; Lev. 18
sexual intercourse with a divorced man or woman; Mk. 10:11,
metaph. the worship of idols
of the defilement of idolatry, as incurred by eating the sacrifices offered to idols
So as we can see here, homosexuality (as well as lesbianism and beastiality) is included in the definition of porneia. Now the question to those arguing for Jesus never mentioning homosexuality during his ministry, is can you show me from this list what form (or forms) of sexual immorality Jesus is specifically mentioning and give a valid reason as to why this isn’t the case with homosexuality and lesbianism? And the answer to this question will have to be factual, not solely based on opinions.

Now, in this article, I will not be outlining what the Biblical view on this issue is, or how Christians should deal with this very important issue. That will come at another point in time. The purpose of this article is to share my response to the Northern Jester and to highlight this important question of whether or not Jesus did mention homosexuality in his ministry, which from reading the New Testament in Biblical Greek, it most certainly seems like he did.

This is a huge issue in our culture today, it will be discussed no end for a long time. This article and the Northern Jester’s blog will not change that anytime soon.

Re: In Search of a High IQ African Population--Scientific Approach

Throwing money at the problem has not worked.

For almost 150 years the United States has been conducting an interesting experiment. The subjects of the experiment: black people and working-class whites.

The hypothesis to be tested: Can a people taken from the jungles of Africa and forced into slavery be fully integrated as citizens in a majority white population?

The whites were descendants of Europeans who had created a majestic civilization. The former slaves had been tribal peoples with no written language and virtually no intellectual achievements. Acting on a policy that was not fair to either group, the government released newly freed black people into a white society that saw them as inferiors. America has struggled with racial discord ever since.

Decade after decade the problems persisted but the experimenters never gave up. They insisted that if they could find the right formula the experiment would work, and concocted program after program to get the result they wanted. They created the Freedman’s Bureau, passed civil rights laws, tried to build the Great Society, declared War on Poverty, ordered race preferences, built housing projects, and tried midnight basketball.

Their new laws intruded into people’s lives in ways that would have been otherwise unthinkable. They called in National Guard troops to enforce school integration. They outlawed freedom of association. Over the protests of parents, they put white children on buses and sent them to black schools and vice versa. They tried with money, special programs, relaxed standards, and endless handwringing to close the “achievement gap.” To keep white backlash in check they began punishing public and even private statements on race. They hung up Orwellian public banners that commanded whites to “Celebrate Diversity!” and “Say No to Racism.” Nothing was off limits if it might salvage the experiment.

Some thought that what W.E.B. Du Bois called the Talented Tenth would lead the way for black people. A group of elite, educated blacks would knock down doors of opportunity and show the world what blacks were capable of. There is a Talented Tenth. They are the black Americans who have become entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors and scientists. But ten percent is not enough. For the experiment to work, the ten percent has to be followed by a critical mass of people who can hold middle-class jobs and promote social stability. That is what is missing.

Through the years, too many black people continue to show an inability to function and prosper in a culture unsuited to them. Detroit is bankrupt, the south side of Chicago is a war zone, and the vast majority of black cities all over America are beset by degeneracy and violence. And blacks never take responsibility for their failures. Instead, they lash out in anger and resentment.

Across the generations and across the country, as we have seen in Detroit, Watts, Newark, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and now Ferguson, rioting and looting are just one racial incident away. The white elite would tell us that this doesn't mean the experiment has failed. We just have to try harder. We need more money, more time, more understanding, more programs, and more opportunities.

But nothing changes no matter how much money is spent, no matter how many laws are passed, no matter how many black geniuses are portrayed on TV, and no matter who is president. Some argue it’s a problem of “culture,” as if culture creates people’s behavior instead of the other way around. Others blame “white privilege.”

But since 1965, when the elites opened America’s doors to the Third World, immigrants from Asia and India–people who are not white, not rich, and not “connected”–have quietly succeeded. While the children of these people are winning spelling bees and getting top scores on the SAT, black “youths” are committing half the country’s violent crime–crime, which includes viciously punching random white people on the street for the thrill of it that has nothing to do with poverty.

The experiment has failed. Not because of culture, or white privilege, or racism. The fundamental problem is that white people and black people are different. They differ intellectually and temperamentally. These differences result in permanent social incompatibility.

Our rulers don’t seem to understand just how tired their white subjects are with this experiment. They don’t understand that white people aren't out to get black people; they are just exhausted with them. They are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless complaints, and the blind racial solidarity, the bottomless pit of grievances, the excuses, and the reflexive animosity.

Bill Donohue comments on the aftermath of the Paris murders:

In an ideal world, Muslims who interpret the Koran to justify violence would convert to Catholicism, and artists who think they have an absolute right to insult people of faith would follow suit. If both did, we would have peace and civility.

Catholicism teaches that it is immoral to intentionally kill innocent persons, beginning with life in the womb. It is not a pacifistic religion—it believes in just wars—though it naturally inclines towards non-violence. It most certainly does not counsel violence as a right remedy to insolent behavior. Muslims who say it is morally justified to kill obscene artists, citing the Koran as their impetus, would do us all a favor if they converted to Catholicism.

Catholicism teaches that freedom is the right to do what you ought to do. As such, it is always tied to duty, and to individual responsibility. Once that understanding breaks down—as it has in the West—trouble follows. Unfortunately, many artists interpret their rights as a solo exercise, disconnected from duty or responsibility. But autonomy can never be a sturdy guide to morality: it devolves into relativism and to a wholesale disrespect for the rights of others. Narcissistic artists who associate obscenity with creativity would do us all a favor if they converted to Catholicism.

The central problem with Muslim extremists and irresponsible artists is that neither embodies the virtue of restraint. If they did, they would not act as the barbarians and libertines that they are. Catholicism is the answer.

Bill Donohue comments on reactions to his news release from yesterday on the murder of 12 people in Paris:

Being misrepresented is commonplace for public figures. Sometimes it reflects an honest misreading; other times it is a willful distortion. I don’t have the time now to address all of these instances, but I am hardly going to run from my position.

My position is this: the murderers are fully responsible for what they did and should be treated with the full force of the law. Nothing justifies the killing of these people. But this is not the whole of this issue.

The cartoonists, and all those associated with Charlie Hebdo, are no champions of freedom. Quite the opposite: their obscene portrayal of religious figures—so shocking that not a single TV station or mainstream newspaper would show them—represents an abuse of freedom.

Muslims Are Right to Be Angry

Bill Donohue comments on the killing of 12 people at the Paris office of the newspaper Charlie Hebdo:

Killing in response to insult, no matter how gross, must be unequivocally condemned. That is why what happened in Paris cannot be tolerated. But neither should we tolerate the kind of intolerance that provoked this violent reaction.

Those who work at this newspaper have a long and disgusting record of going way beyond the mere lampooning of public figures, and this is especially true of their depictions of religious figures. For example, they have shown nuns masturbating and popes wearing condoms. They have also shown Muhammad in pornographic poses.

While some Muslims today object to any depiction of the Prophet, others do not. Moreover, visual representations of him are not proscribed by the Koran. What unites Muslims in their anger against Charlie Hebdo is the vulgar manner in which Muhammad has been portrayed. What they object to is being intentionally insulted over the course of many years. On this aspect, I am in total agreement with them.

Stephane Charbonnier, the paper’s publisher, was killed today in the slaughter. It is too bad that he didn’t understand the role he played in his tragic death. In 2012, when asked why he insults Muslims, he said, “Muhammad isn’t sacred to me.” Had he not been so narcissistic, he may still be alive. Muhammad isn’t sacred to me, either, but it would never occur to me to deliberately insult Muslims by trashing him.

I want to publicly thank popular atheist, Jaclyn Glenn, for the exposure she has given to "Evolution Vs. God." Her first review received over 650,000 views.

No doubt most of those who watched were atheists. God only knows how many backslid because of her disastrous effort at damage-control.

The first review didn't work so she tried again, and this one has had over 190,000 views.

Watch Jaclyn go into panic-mode as the sacred cow of Darwinian evolution is shown to have no scientific basis.

This is because it's not me that couldn't find evidence for the belief. It was four leading evolutionary scientists (from USC and UCLA) that are floundering. So her frustration is understandable.

If you watch, be ready for her potty-mouth (see Proverbs 11:22).

All suffering is a consequence of sin and sin originated in this world from mans disobedience. If man had obeyed the simple commands of God from the beginning, there wouldn't be any of the suffering we see today. Satan, the father of sin, loves to torture what God loves and it's very clear in the Bible that God loves children. Mans disobedience in Eden opened the gateway for Satan to cause utter destruction. Could God step in and prevent it? Yes. But He doesn't. Why? Because man needs to see the consequence of sin and straying from Gods path to be willing to turn away from it. People need an understanding of how adverse sin is to never want to do it again. But that doesn't mean that God doesn't grieve. Remember these are His children we're talking about. His heart burns for them every second. Most people think that He just sits back nd watches the world as if it were TV screen. But in truth, He’s with all of us e every minute. He suffers with us. He sent His own Son, spotless and pure, to die a gruesome death so that we might be saved. But one day all suffering will come to an end forever. God has every single life in mind as if each one was his only priority. Justice will be done to every living soul in the end. We cannot understand every aspect of the divine plan of an omniscient, omnipotent God. But we just need to know that He has assured a fair ending to this great controversy. It's not for us to try and fathom everything. That's where faith comes into the picture.

[Context: Feminist youtuber Kevin Logan uploaded a video about Trans anti-Feminist youtuber Blaire White, The commenter in question proceeds to launch into a Conspiracy about "New" Atheists promoting White Nationalism]

Zinnia Jones once made a video critical of Blaire White and I dared to mention examples of Blaire White's virulent racism in the comments and she blocked me over that. Even as much as the new atheists have attacked trans people, she's still a part of the same group and will still defend her fellow new atheist cultists regardless. The same thing happened with Jaclyn Glenn and AronRa, who I thought might be against some of what has gone on lately in the "skeptic" community and might be on my side. I dared to mention some anti-gay comments Peter Boghossian made on an AronRa video and now I'm blocked. I should have known. The new atheist cultists are either actively promoting white nationalism, bigotry and hate or they ignore what's going on and won't speak up against it. They even tried doing to AronRa what they did to Steve Shives, and AronRa was put in his place if he knows what's good for him.?

During the job interview I was told that because they are a small company they offer 3 month of training after that it’s a real wage and manager in 3 years. 3 Month later I asked about a full time wage. For some reason, they thought to insult me and put me under duress. I ended up in a job I was not willing to do for money I am not willing to for while conducting business with people it offends me to conduct business with. I have learned many things here like that Presbyterian churches are used to baptize small domesticated animals and Polkas are nasty people. It’s somewhat contradictory to what I was taught growing up about Slavic Unity and respect for other religions.

I know some local Baptist pastors who have rejected me, won't have anything to do with me, despise me, call me and Dr. Jack Hyles “cult” members, and hold a grudge against me, because of my King James Bible only position. These apostate pastors promote the modern corrupt Bible versions based upon the Alexandrian, Egypt, manuscripts. Their time of reckoning will come at the Judgment Seat of Christ (2nd Corinthians 5:10-11). Corrupt Bible versions always lead to corrupt doctrines, such as a false meaning of repentance, which hurts people! There is no crime in God's eyes any more serious for a pastor to commit than promoting a counterfeit Word of God.

These careless men nonchalantly dismiss their apostasy as a mere “difference in ministerial philosophy,” but it is far more... it is false religion on their part!!! I recently wrote a kind letter to some of these wayward men. They unkindly responded by comparing me and them to Barnabas and Paul, but it is more like the Prophets of Baal (them) and Elijah (me). Satan's grandest achievement in these last days has been the corrupt modern Bible revision movement. Literally, the American Bible Society says that there are approximately 900 English Bible versions. Can you believe that? Wow! It's sad but true. My friend, God only authored ONE BOOK!!!

I said these things to relate it to what I see in a rainbow. I have lost 52 pounds in just 3 months, since February 21st. I was 208 lbs in February. I weighed 156.8 this morning (May 15). My doctor told me last month that my type II diabetes is gone. Praise the Lord for that! I've been walking twice each day, to get my weight down. While walking I've seen dozens of rainbows in the clouds. Each time that I see a rainbow, I am reminded that God keeps all His promises. When I see each rainbow, I feel as if God is saying to me:

"Hang in there David! I'm going to reward you for standing for the King James Bible, and for exposing the corrupt Alexandrian manuscripts upon which all the modern Bible versions are based. You know from Psalm 138:2 how important my words are to Me. I have elevated my words above my own name, because just as a man's word is his bond, so also I as God am only as trustworthy as My word. I will honor my promises David, and since you've been faithful to my words, I will reward you, not those shallow pastors who don't care. I won't reward those unfaithful pastors who serve mammon, who promote corrupt Bibles, who have turned you away. I know you've been outcast by those unfaithful pastors. I see that you're despised and rejected by the neo-evangelical crowd. I know your pain, of both body and soul. I won't let your sacrifice and suffering go unnoticed or unrewarded David. I'm proud of you for standing for the truth, even though you've been weak through it all! Revelation 3:8, 'for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.'”

That is what I feel each and every time that I see a precious rainbow in the clouds. I am resolved more than ever to stand and fight the good fight of faith. While other shallow religious men are making a salary, promoting corruptible word (seed), and disgracing their profession in the clergy, I am standing firm and true upon the inspired, preserved and inerrant King James Bible!!!!!!!

Angela Jones #racist nypost.com

A black New Jersey woman who said she’s “sick of fancy white people,” and who allegedly attacked a man with a hammer and smashed his Porsche and boat at a Virginia gas station, was arrested Wednesday, according to authorities and reports.

Angela Jones, 26, of Newark is accused of beating the man from Massachusetts on Tuesday as he fueled up his car at an Exxon gas station on I-95, the Essex County (NJ) Sheriff’s Office said.

The victim, identified by WTVR.com only as Bob, had stopped at the station on his way home from Florida with his wife, Katherine, when he allegedly was approached by a screaming Jones.

“This lady was a couple pumps over and talking to me and yelling at somebody about having a message for her. I had no idea what she was talking about,” Bob told WTVR.com.

“I was coming around the side of the car and next thing I know, a car blocks me in. She comes out of her car, gets in my face and yelling at me about some sort of message I got for her,” he said.

The victim said Jones eventually threatened to put a hole in his “fancy boat.”

Jones then allegedly busted up the victim’s Porsche and his boat with the tool and spat in the face of the victim’s wife, according to Essex County Sheriff Armando Fontoura.

A sheriff from the Caroline County Sheriff’s Office in Virginia told the news outlet, “She actually took a hammer and she hit his vehicle and the boat … She actually clawed him. He took her down to the ground to prevent her from doing any more damage.”

Jones reportedly said during the attack that she was “sick of fancy white people,” the couple told WVTR.com.

“I have no idea why she started going after us, but I guess she thought we were some rich people,” Bob said.

The Caroline County Sheriff’s Office said it is investigating whether the case is a hate crime, according to the news station.

Jones — who faces charges of felonious assault, assault and battery, and two counts of intentional damage to property — was picked up by sheriff’s detectives early Wednesday at her Fairmount Avenue home.

According to the Caroline County Sheriff’s Office in Virginia, additional charges are pending against Jones.

She is being held at the Essex County Jail, where she awaits extradition to Virginia, authorities said.

Andrew Snelling #fundie theatlantic.com

A Creationist Sues the Grand Canyon for Religious Discrimination
The national park wouldn’t let him collect rocks for research.

“How did the Grand Canyon form?” is a question so commonly pondered that YouTube is rife with explanations. Go down into the long tail of Grand Canyon videos, and you’ll eventually find a two-part, 35-minute lecture by Andrew Snelling. The first sign this isn’t a typical geology lecture comes about a minute in, when Snelling proclaims, “The Grand Canyon does provide a testament to the biblical account of Earth’s history.”

Snelling is a prominent young-Earth creationist. For years, he has given lectures, guided biblical-themed Grand Canyon rafting tours, and worked for the nonprofit Answers in Genesis. (The CEO of Answers in Genesis, Ken Ham, is also behind the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter theme park.) Young-Earth creationism, in contrast to other forms of creationism, specifically holds that the Earth is only thousands of years old. Snelling believes that the Grand Canyon formed after Noah’s flood—and he now claims the U.S. government is blocking his research in the canyon because of his religious views.

Last week, Snelling sued park administrators and the Department of Interior, which administers the national parks program, because they would not grant him a permit to collect 50 to 60 fist-sized rocks. All research in the national park is restricted, especially if it requires removing material. But the Grand Canyon does host 80 research projects a year, ranging from archaeology digs to trout tracking.

Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal advocacy group that filed the lawsuit on behalf of Snelling, alleged discrimination by the park. “National Park Service: Research in Grand Canyon okay for geologists … but not Christian ones,” read the headline on their press release. (Interior department and NPS spokespeople declined to comment because of the pending litigation.)

If the permit application hit a nerve, it’s because young-Earth creationists have a bit of an obsession with the Grand Canyon. Where geologists see billions of years of rock layers carved out by a persistent flow of water, young-Earth creationists see sediments laid down in Noah’s flood. As the flood receded, they believe, water became trapped behind natural dams, until it finally broke through in a “catastrophic erosion” that carved the Grand Canyon.

This is the story told on religious rafting trips organized by companies like Canyon Ministries, for which Snelling also works as a guide. In 2004, a book by the Canyon Ministry founder Tom Vail caused a stir when it was sold at the national park’s bookstores.

It’s all part of an uneasy relationship between the park and young-Earth creationists. The park does permit the rafting trips, and it has allowed creationists, including Snelling according to the lawsuit, to work in the park before. Another prominent young-Earth creationist, Steve Austin, took photos of nautiloid fossils in the park and used them to argue that the creatures died during the flood. “I think the NPS has felt a bit stung by past creationist research in the Grand Canyon,” says Steven Newton, who teaches geology at College of Marin and serves as the programs and policy director for the National Center for Science Education, a nonprofit that opposes teaching creationism in public schools.

Exactly why the park did not grant Snelling’s application is, of course, now the subject of a lawsuit. His project did involve collecting a sizable number of rocks, which can invite more scrutiny. In an email to Snelling filed as part of the lawsuit, a park officer said the project was not granted because the type of rock he wanted to study can also be found outside of the Grand Canyon. The park solicited peer reviews from three mainstream geologists. One mentioned the rocks could be found elsewhere; all three overwhelmingly denounced the work as not scientifically valid, a criterion the park also uses to evaluate proposals. Snelling, who holds a Ph.D. in geology, did not disclose his Answers in Genesis affiliation, nor did he explicitly say he wanted to prove the Grand Canyon is young in his initial permit application, but the reviewers became aware of his reputation.

Geology as a profession has struggled with what to do with young-Earth creationists, whose beliefs are contradicted by literal mountains of scientific evidence. Shut them down, and you get cries of censorship—like this lawsuit. “This just so plays into their hands,” Newton says about the national park’s treatment of Snelling’s application. Newton favors letting creationists do their research and then arguing on the merits of their science. But allowing them to present at scientific conferences, others say, is lending creationists legitimacy.

“That’s really a tough question because in science we want to be the type of community where people can bring about ideas that are controversial,” says Stephen Moshier, a geologist at Wheaton, a Christian liberal arts college in Illinois, and a former president of the Affiliation of Christian Geologists. The problem, according to Moshier, who is not a young-Earth creationist, is that they want mainstream geologists to be open to new ideas, but it’s the young-Earth creationists themselves who have proved inflexible in the face of new evidence contradicting their ideas. “Often I read things by young-Earth creationists where I think they really ought to know better. Many of them have excellent training in the geosciences,” he says. (Snelling declined to comment because of the lawsuit. Four other young-Earth creationists who study the Grand Canyon did not respond to requests for comment.)

That the Grand Canyon is the stage where this conflict now plays out is no coincidence. The canyon is such a potent example of the power of small changes over time—of what’s possible on geological time scales. “Look through any introductory geology textbook, any sedimentology textbook, and the Grand Canyon is going to be there in either full color or on the whole page,” says Moshier.

Last year, he and other Christian geologists published a book titled The Grand Canyon, Monument to an Ancient Earth, directly refuting young-Earth creationists who cite the canyon as evidence of Noah’s flood. “It wouldn’t be of any use writing about the Appalachian Mountains—even though I think we can make a stronger case for an ancient Earth there because the geology is so complex,” says Moshier. “Because they make a big deal out of the Grand Canyon and use it as a lab for young-Earth creationism and flood geology, that’s naturally where we had to focus the book.”

When young-Earth creationists invoke God, they are tapping into a real sense of wonder about the Grand Canyon. It’s easy—in fact all too human—to wonder how so small a river could have carved so vast a chasm. One partial answer is that the Glen Canyon dam has quelled the spring floods that originally bored through rock; the lazily winding Colorado River that you see today is not the river that formed the Grand Canyon. But also, humans are bad at intuiting the consequences of deep time. Once you add enough zeros to number of years they all start to sound the same.

It’s hard to imagine how much can happen in geological time. About 1.7 billion years ago, a series of volcanoes crashed into what would become the continent of North America and created mountains taller than the Himalayas today. Those mountains eroded back down to hills to form the rock that now rests at the base of the canyon. Over countless millions of years, a shallow sea expanded and contracted over the area, laying down the sediment that would become the sandstone, shale, and limestone layers. Plate tectonics then pushed those rock layers up and up to became the Colorado Plateau. And finally, flowing water carved its way down 1.7 billion years of rock.

It’s hard to imagine, but there is wonder and grandeur in this imagination, too.

Negroes had ample opportunities to earn that respect, and squandered them all with their innate feral and feckless behavior.

Whites are descendants of Europeans who had created a majestic civilization. Negroes are tribal people with no written language and virtually no intellectual achievements. Acting on a policy that was not fair to either group, the government released newly freed Negros into a white society that saw them as inferiors.

Decade after decade the problems persisted but the social justice warriors never gave up. They insisted that if they could find the right formula cohabitation would work, and concocted program after program to get the result they wanted. They created the Freedman’s Bureau, passed civil rights laws, tried to build the Great Society, declared War on Poverty, ordered race preferences, built housing projects, and tried midnight basketball.

Their new laws intruded into people’s lives in ways that would have been otherwise unthinkable. They called in National Guard troops to enforce school integration. They outlawed freedom of association. Over the protests of parents, they put Caucasian children on buses and sent them to Negro schools and vice versa. They tried with money, special programs, relaxed standards, and endless handwringing to close the “achievement gap.” To keep Caucasian backlash in check they began punishing public and even private statements on race. They hung up Orwellian public banners that commanded Caucasians to “Celebrate Diversity!” and “Say No to Racism.” Nothing was off limits if it might salvage the idea that Negros and Caucasians are equal on all levels.

Through the years, too many Negros continue to show an inability to function and prosper in a culture unsuited to them. Detroit is bankrupt, the south side of Chicago is a war zone, and the vast majority of black cities all over America are beset by degeneracy and violence. And Negros never take responsibility for their failures. Instead, they lash out in anger and resentment.

Across the generations and across the country, as we have seen in Detroit, Watts, Newark, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and now Ferguson, rioting and looting are just one racial incident away. We are told we just have to try harder. More money, time, understanding, programs, and/or more opportunities are needed.

But nothing changes no matter how much money is spent, no matter how many laws are passed, no matter how many Negro geniuses are portrayed on TV, and no matter who is president. Some argue it’s a problem of “culture,” as if culture creates people’s behavior instead of the other way around. Others blame “white privilege.”

BUT, when America threw open the flood gates to the Third World, immigrants from Asia and India–people who are not Caucasian, not rich, and not “connected”–have quietly succeeded. While the children of these people are winning spelling bees and getting top scores on the SAT, Negro “youths” are committing half the country’s violent crime–crime, which includes viciously punching random Caucasians on the street for the thrill of it that has nothing to do with poverty.

After some 60 years of failure, squandering trillions of their tax dollars, Caucasians are exhausted with the failure to turn Negroes into productive people. They are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless complaints, the bottomless pit of grievances regardless of the money given away, the excuses, and the reflexive animosity.

The 'Most liberal American cities' are so-called "progressive" cities in the United States that are usually are in Blue states / unfree states.

These most leftist cities typically have even more draconian Nanny state local laws in addition to the onerous liberal state laws in support of the progressive police state, especially support for Gun free zones, Gun control and ammunition control, along with the Homosexual agenda (see San Francisco values), and illegal immigration "sanctuary" and tend to follow Hollywood values in terms of drugs and other liberal values.

Liberal Cities Generally Found in "Unfree States"

Almost all of the liberal cities, with the exception of Austin, Texas, are found in the the Blue state liberal Democrat "death spiral" Nanny states / progressive Police states. "The East Coast and West Coast (Left Coast) had the most liberal states including Vermont, Massachusetts, Delaware, New York, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Maine, California and New Jersey." [1]

Phil Reiff, Director of the liberal Bay Area Center for Voting Research says, "While there are a few liberal cities without large African American populations, these wind up being the exceptions. The list of Americas most liberal cities is dominated by cities with large African American populations that are concentrated in the Northeast, Midwest and California."[2]

Pope Francis and Obama are eerily, eerily similar, both in their personages, their regimes and in their regimes’ tactics. If you have noticed that too, you’re spot on. They are both stupid, babbling fools, completely incoherent when not reading off a script prepared by others. Both are Marxists. Both are media darling fronts for a thuggish regime, and it turns out that the powers behind Francis may have engaged in electioneering and quid pro quos before the Conclave of ARSH 2013. Both sic their bureaucratic henchmen on their enemies. Both are in bed with the sodomites (i.e. Ricca and Barros). Both despise and are hellbent on destroying the respective institutions which they rule, presumably “in service to mankind in order to bring about utopia.”

[...]

First, I penned a piece back in February of ARSH 2012 based on a Fulton Sheen exegesis of satan’s three temptations of Christ in the desert from his book “Life of Christ”, and how these three temptations mapped exactly to Marxism, and the Obama regime specifically. Well, I went back and re-read the piece not long ago, and was shaken to the core to realize that Pope Francis Bergoglio maps to the three temptations of satan every bit as much as Obama, and in some cases, even more directly. But the fact that the two men and their respective regimes are so similar and, apparently “simpatico” with each other (i.e. their coordination on the Cuban detente), is a HUGE indicator. Briefly, here are the three points:

1. Temptation number one from satan was telling Jesus to turn stones into bread. This is the Marxist ploy of winning the mob by giving them free stuff, and equating material abundance with salvation. Given what has happened economically over the last 50 years, and in particular the political mindset today of the government magically providing abundance for the people by blowing an enormous, unsustainable debt bubble that is going to destroy everything, can we not see the parallel?

[...]

2. The second temptation of Christ by satan was to win the mob via pride, vanity and egomania. In the case of Christ, the temptation was to perform an actual public demonstration of His divinity so that no one would have any choice but know that He was God. In the case of Marxists, it is to con people into believing that they will work miracles, and that they are “god”.

[...]

A few days ago Francis announced in a Papal Bull, in what can only be described as the thinly-veiled threat of a complete thug, that he is creating “Missionaries of Mercy” – clerics that will be sent out to “pardon even those sins reserved to the Holy See”. (There no longer are any sins whose pardon is reserved only to the Holy See, but in another analogue to the Obama regime, these people are mostly morons – bold and aggressive, but morons.)

[...]

What this is is a direct analogue to the Obama regime’s use of so-called Executive Orders and Executive Actions to end-run the other two non-compliant branches of government. In the Church, the Synod, and really the entire college of Bishops, would be analogous to the Congress and state legislatures, and the Supreme Court is analogous to the Apostolic Signatura, which Francis removed Cardinal Raymond Burke from last year. Cardinal Burke was the analogue of the Chief Justice of the Vatican Supreme Court.

And so, like the Obama regime, the Francis regime has preached decentralization of power, but has, in fact, done NOTHING but concentrate and coalesce power around himself and his regime.

Typical. Marxists.

Last fall’s Synod Against the Family showed the Francis regime two things. First, there would be “refuseniks” to the diabolical Bergoglio-Kasper plan, and second, who those “refuseniks” are. So, in order to deal with these “enemies of the revolution”, Francis is simply going to send these “Missionaries of Mercy” out into the bishoprics of the ACTUAL, BELIEVING CATHOLIC BISHOPS, and make no mistake, their marching orders will be hold “marriage tribunals in the confessional” that would ratify all manner of adultery and concubinage. And you know what? I doubt there is a single bishop on the planet who would tell these so-called “Missionaries of Mercy” to stay away. Because that is the only real option because the confessional certainly cannot be miked to ensure compliance with the teaching of Jesus Christ and His Church.

So yeah. Francis and his puppet masters observed their fellow Marxist thug Obama’s success in using unilateral, illegal tyrannical edicts and siccing bureaucrats onto the supine underlings, and are simply copying the play in their quest to destroy the Sacrament of Marriage and thus “force” priests to desecrate the Eucharist within the Mass itself.

That's the Satanic Temple suing to stop an Indiana abortion law signed by Mike Pence. Is it a total abortion ban, a heartbeat bill, or even a bill requiring abortuaries to practice the same sanitation as Wendy's?

No. The Indiana law simply mandates disposing of fetal remains with the same dignity as other human remains, via burial or cremation.

The Satanic Temple is pursuing legal action to prevent murdered babies from receiving a decent burial.

These satanists claim the law could pose undue hardship to mothers seeking to murder their children.

Why? Because it might incline them to think of their dead babies as human beings?

There's another, darker motive.

The Death Cult which rules us, including the Satanic Temple, Disney, and Netflix, don't want these children buried.

They want them sacrificed.

Hollywood, the media, and academia belong to a heretical faith disguised with flimsy secular trappings. Their ultimate aims are not wealth and power. They instead seek warped spiritual ends that are perverted reflections of Christian graces.

Preferred pronouns are the Death Cult's version of transubstantiation. They believe they can turn men into women by uttering the right formula. This article of faith is so sacrosanct to them that they have enacted blasphemy laws protecting these incantations.

Erasing whiteness is an attempt to reverse the Death Cult analogue of original sin. But instead of immersion in water, the one whose skin announces his guilt can only be baptized in his own blood.

But the Death Cult's highest sacrament, the public liturgy which constitutes the deepest expression of their identity, is child sacrifice.

The glib rhetoric claiming they sought to protect women's best interests has been revealed as a sham. If abortion were a mere matter of civics, private companies like Disney would have no cause to risk involving themselves in a political controversy guaranteed to alienate huge numbers of their customers.

Disney, Netflix, and the Satanic Temple just want to keep murdering babies. They need to. The precepts of their diabolical faith dictate that the innocent blood must flow. The children must be fed to Moloch. They must not be interred in the ground--especially not ground consecrated to the hated Christ.

Among the more shrill allegations voiced by constituent subgroups of the political left is that the opposition (Republicans, conservatives and Christians) would gladly kill them in a great purge if only they had the practical capacity to do so. During the 2004 campaign season, iconic pop singer and self-described “fag hag” Cher (urbandictionary.com: A woman who enjoys hanging out with gay men) publicly proclaimed that George W. Bush would ship homosexuals off in cattle cars to death camps were he re-elected.

I suppose Cher reasoned (if indeed she does reason) that doing this had somehow slipped Bush’s mind during his first term.

I’ve heard the same charge leveled with regard to ethnic minorities, that right-wingers would just love to re-institute slavery or segregation; in their perfect world, they could simply wipe out those nasty darker-skinned people altogether. Naturally, this presupposes that all right-wingers are white.

Those on the left routinely typify their opponents as intolerant, hateful and potentially violent. This has increased in volume and frequency under the Obama administration, which codified these mischaracterizations into Department of Homeland Security policy; DHS has designated pro-lifers, patriots, constitutionalists, Christians, amnesty opponents, gun enthusiasts, military veterans and other groups as potential terrorist threats.

In keeping with their hypocrisy and incongruity, leftists conveniently omit the fact that they have carried out more terrorism, pogroms, mass murders and genocide than any political group in history. As regular readers will be aware, projection of their antisocial character defects onto opponents is a hallmark of the left’s methodology.

Their objective is to convince as much of the citizenry as possible that their warnings are at least somewhat plausible. This way, when DHS Storm Troopers arrive in the wee hours to collect their neighbors, they will accept the cover story without protest: The detainees were involved in a terrorist plot to carry out large scale “hate crimes” against illegal immigrants, homosexuals, or some species of endangered grouse.

What we are in fact seeing is the political left, through deception, incrementalism and outright violation of the Constitution, insidiously maneuvering rational, law-abiding Americans into a position so untenable that at some elusive but inevitable point, violent civil disobedience – vigilantism – may be the only practicable response.

There are a few very sobering commentaries published recently that address the de facto criminalization of Christianity in the wake of Canada having legalized “gay marriage” in 2005. One is Lea Z. Singh’s “Same-sex ‘Marriage’ and the Persecution of Christians in Canada,” written for Crisis Magazine.

Previously, I identified an analogue between the process of abortion having become legal in the U.S. and the push for legalization of same-sex-unions. It’s a bait-and-switch, with the practice bearing little resemblance to the theory.

As Singh and other commentators have explained, the same tactic was used to secure “marriage equality” for homosexuals in Canada. Opponents of legalizing same-sex unions were given frequent and impassioned assurances that their religious liberties would continue to be protected. Singh writes: “The preamble to Canada’s Civil Marriage Act states that ‘everyone has the freedom of conscience and religion,’ and ‘nothing in this Act affects the guarantee of freedom of conscience and religion. …’”

This did not hold true, however, as the Canadian government, dominated by radical leftists, took it as license to legislate social norms. It is now illegal to express opinions on gender identity or preference that deviate from the new pro-homosexual, anti-Christian orthodoxy.

According to Ms. Singh, “It is not premature to speak of open discrimination against Christians in Canada.”

Canadian homofascists – with the imprimatur of the government – have established the baseless and biologically fallacious equivalency between interracial and same-sex relationships as conventional wisdom. Thus, “Christians who believe in traditional marriage are the modern-day equivalent of racists,” says Singh, “and warrant identical exclusion.”

This means that if you’re a Christian, or do not otherwise embrace the sodomite movement, it is legal and encouraged to deny you a job, a promotion, housing and engage in your being systematically disenfranchised.

Bear in mind that all of this is taking place in a country wherein 52 percent of the population opposed the “legalization” of same-sex “marriage” to start with.

Shortly, Singh writes, all public schools in Ontario will implement a new, mandated curriculum beginning in the third grade. This course of study introduces children to the perverse, patently idiotic concept that gender itself is a matter of choice, that “transgender desires are just as perfectly normal as homosexual leanings.”

And Canadian parents dare not oppose this, because it would make them quite literally subject to prosecution. As an effect of the Civil Marriage Act, the very concept of what constitutes a “parent” changed, so many parental rights were summarily negated.

Since the passage of the law, hate-crime tribunals began prosecuting Canadian Christians for publicly articulating biblical values. Homosexual activists have spies in churches, monitoring sermons for biblical passages considered to be “hate speech.” Pastors have been jailed, businesses fined out of business and individuals driven into bankruptcy.

So, how might American Christians react to such developments here? The reason I ask is because the wheels are already in motion. The satanic minions in our government absolutely must bring about these societal transformations in order to “kill off” God and establish the State as the ultimate arbiter of morality. Rending the family unit asunder will ensure that the State becomes the individual’s sole guide, instructor and authority from cradle to grave.

I’m not inclined to think that We the People will respond as submissively as Canadians did to a similar scenario transpiring here. In fact, when otherwise rational, law-abiding Americans suddenly realize that the last of their liberties have been legislated, regulated and executive-ordered away, their response just might make the left’s accusations in the opening paragraph a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Elaine Donnelly #fundie washingtonpost.com

[Excerpts from a report on her pro "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" testimony]

Donnelly treated the panel to an extraordinary exhibition of rage. She warned of "transgenders in the military." She warned that lesbians would take pictures of people in the shower. She spoke ominously of gays spreading "HIV positivity" through the ranks.

"We're talking about real consequences for real people," Donnelly proclaimed. Her written statement added warnings about "inappropriate passive/aggressive actions common in the homosexual community," the prospects of "forcible sodomy" and "exotic forms of sexual expression," and the case of "a group of black lesbians who decided to gang-assault" a fellow soldier.

[...]

But it was Donnelly, founder and president of the Center for Military Readiness, who amused lawmakers the most. Snyder asked Darrah about Donnelly's reference to "passive-aggressive actions common in the homosexual community," saying, "I'm almost tempted to ask you to demonstrate."

Darrah was stumped. "Like a woman who is stared at, her breasts are stared at," Donnelly explained. She further explained the "absolutely devastating" effect of homosexuals "introducing erotic factors" and made a comparison to Sen. Larry Craig's adventure at the Minneapolis airport. She said admitting gays to the military would be "forced cohabitation" and a policy of "relax and enjoy it."

A conservative military watchdog says she disagrees with the recent recommendation by several high-level members of President Obama's defense team that the ban on women serving on submarines should be dropped.

Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, says besides putting women in a very confined area with dozens of male sailors, the constantly recycled atmosphere creates a health risk.

"In the very early days and weeks of pregnancy, the recycled atmosphere [in a submarine] includes elements that are very unsafe for an unborn child," she notes.

"So let's suppose three weeks out [to sea], a married sailor discovers she's pregnant. And the ship commander has two choices -- either [he] violate the stealthy status of the submarine by surfacing for a dangerous evacuation, or he tells her that she will have to remain as she is throughout the deployment.

"This is an impossible dilemma that can and should be avoided," says the military watchdog.

As for the alleged abuse, it’s time to ask some tough questions. First, there is a huge difference between being groped and being raped, so which was it Mr. Foley? Second, why didn’t you just smack the clergyman in the face? After all, most 15-year-old teenage boys wouldn’t allow themselves to be molested. So why did you?

At the time you felt homosexual, you were torn that it was wrong...maybe?? You thought what would people think?? Well what does God think, and what He says that is what matters!
You can be delivered from it...I promise.

Thanks, Terry, I agree. And the only one we can change is ourselves, and it is our job. Well said.

My husband used to belong to a ministerial alliance years ago. Would you believe a woman from a local Women’s Shelter showed up one morning at our monthly breakfast at a restaurant and actually asked all the ministers there to please not preach on the verses in the Bible about wifely submission, because the verses could be abused by wife-beaters????

I couldn’t believe she would actually have the audacity to tell ministers not to preach certain things from the Bible, but she did, in plain English. None of the other ministers said a word (they were mostly liberals), but my husband said, “Misuse of Scripture does not void it.” She didn’t say any more after that.

Being in a ministerial aliance with liberal ministers for a time, several years ago, was quite interesting — and why my husband is not in one any more. He really got an education; up until that time, he hadn’t realized how liberal some ministers in some of these denominations are, because he hadn’t had much contact with either.

Atavistic Autist #sexist #crackpot incels.co

[JFL] BrazilianSmegma "wow, just wow'd" at my observation that 'only psychopathic Chads and roasties are allowed to be narcissistic'

This is literally true. If you're a grandiose narcissist in the sense that your inflated ego actually gets fed by the praises of other people, then from the individualistic perspective of therapy, there is nothing wrong with you. Despite the fact that you are most certainly harming others through your self-serving behavior, you are egosyntonic in the sense that your behavior ultimately benefits you and you recognize that fact -- and this is all that matters. "Treatment" over.

It's only if you're autistic/incel that narcissism is considered a problem, because your inflated ego is not being fed by the praises of other people; you are a low status/ugly/neurotic fallen narcissist who is actually disdained by others. Your self-serving behavior does not ultimately benefit you in the social arena, but just makes people hate you more. You are egodystonic due to this conflict of interests.

So how does therapy address the plight of being a giga-IQ'd autist/incel who knows he's above normgroids but does not get recognized for that fact? It attempts to break their ego down, but not completely -- only to the point of accepting the degradations of social conformity, where they can "find meaning in a job," for example, whereas psychopathic Chads and roasties find meaning in having innumerable orgies, tyrannizing the world, and spitting upon the collective good (at the very same time as the autist/incel is told all about the merits of "contributing to the community" or whatever, JFL).

This is very pernicious and reveals an inherent contradiction in therapy. On the one hand, it permits those with high social status to continue exploiting people and maximizing their individual autonomy at the expense of others (indeed, these people do not even "need therapy" for this), whereas for those with low social status, it endeavors to humble them and break their spirit, but not entirely. For if you totally killed off your ego, you would be totally fine with just NEETing for the rest of your life, for example, and not attempting to impress others and be pretentious. This obviously cannot do, because there is no way for psychopathic politicians in the government to tax your individual, creative endeavors as a NEET and for psychopathic, capitalist bosses to pillage your surplus value (not to mention, no way for self-absorbed roasties to get a betabuxx bailout from you).

Instead, you are effectively brainwashed into having the same aspirational desires as normies, and your naivety in this regard is used against you. The fact that you will never achieve a dignified existence through social conformity when you are biologically aberrational is conveniently ignored in therapy. Rather than encourage you to express your narcissism through, say, becoming self-educated and flexing on others in the abstract, you are pushed into college, which is analogues to the indirect passage in a slaughterhouse where cattle are led -- into the butchering of your mind and body in the service of the consumer economy.

Bill Donahue, et al #fundie catholicleague.org

Over 120 blogs have been credentialed as members of the media for the Democratic National Convention; those who have received credentials are allowed to cover the Convention at the Pepsi Center. While most of them offer legitimate commentary, some do not.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue is protesting two of the blogs:

“The list of credentialed blogs include radical sites like The Daily Kos. Worse are blogs that feature anti-Catholic and obscene material. The two most offensive are Bitch Ph.D. and Towleroad.

“On the home page of Bitch Ph.D. there is a picture of two children: one of them is shown flashing his middle finger. Today’s lead post, which was written August 17, is called ‘Jesus Christ.’ It begins with, ‘I’m a really crappy Catholic who hasn’t been to mass in ages because most parishes around here ‘will’ insist on being aggressively anti-abortion….’ The writer then objects to some children’s toys on the grounds that they are more offensive than desecrating the Eucharist. The toys are actually balloons that have been made to depict Jesus in various poses, including a crucified Christ; one of these images shows Jesus with a penis. Several who commented on this image made patently obscene comments.

“Towleroad describes itself as ‘A Site with Homosexual Tendencies.’ Accordingly, it shows men in jock straps and underwear. It also has a post on Pope Benedict XVI that takes him to task for wearing a cape with ermine. Some of those who commented on this described the pope in a vile and profane way.

“Both of these blogs should be cut immediately from the list of credentialed sites. Neither functions as a responsible media outlet and both offend Catholics, as well as others. To allow them access to the Democratic National Convention sends a message to Catholics they will not forget. We look for Leah Daughtry, CEO of the Convention, to nix them ASAP.”

Patrik Mathews, Brian Mark Lemley and William Garfield Bilbrough IV #racist thehill.com

The FBI on Thursday arrested three suspected neo-Nazis who had planned to travel with firearms to Richmond, Va., to participate in a protest against gun control measures proposed by the state legislature’s newly-seated Democratic majority.

Federal officials took the three men into custody in connection with a probe into the white supremacist group The Base, charging them with several federal crimes in Maryland, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland announced.

Officials said one of the three, Patrik Mathews, a former soldier in the Canadian army, entered the U.S. illegally. Mathews, a trained combat engineer, was discharged from the Canadian military after his white supremacist ties came to light, The New York Times reported.

The others charged include Brian Mark Lemley of Elkton, Md., and Newark, Del., and William Garfield Bilbrough IV of Denton, Md., according to the U.S. Attorney's office.

The complaint accuses Lemley and Mathews of transporting a firearm and ammunition with intent to commit a felony and it charges Lemley and Bilbrough with allegedly transporting and harboring aliens and conspiring to do so.

Roberto Alvim #wingnut bbc.com

Brazil's culture minister has been sacked after using parts of a speech by Nazi Germany's propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels in a video, sparking outrage.

In the clip posted on the ministry's Twitter page, Roberto Alvim detailed an award for "heroic" and "national" art.

Lohengrin by Wagner, Hitler's favourite composer, played in the background. Earlier, Mr Alvim said the now-deleted video was a "rhetorical coincidence".

Far-right President Jair Bolsonaro said the speech had been "unfortunate".

"I reiterate our rejection of totalitarian and genocidal ideologies, such as Nazism and communism, as well as any inference to them. We also express our full and unrestricted support for the Jewish community, of which we're friends and share many common values," the president said on Twitter.

In the six-minute video detailing the National Arts Awards, Mr Alvim said: "The Brazilian art of the next decade will be heroic and will be national, will be endowed with great capacity for emotional involvement... deeply linked to the urgent aspirations of our people, or else it will be nothing."

Parts of it were identical to a speech quoted in the book Joseph Goebbels: A Biography, by German historian Peter Longerich, who has written several works on the Holocaust.

"The German art of the next decade will be heroic, it will be steely-romantic, it will be factual and completely free of sentimentality, it will be national with great pathos and binding, or it will be nothing."

[...]

In a post on his Facebook page, Mr Alvim, a theatre director who was appointed to the ministerial post last year, said "the left was doing a fallacious remote association" between the two speeches, and that "there was nothing wrong with his sentence".

"The whole speech was based on a nationalistic ideal for the Brazilian art and there was a coincidence with ONE sentence of a speech by Goebbels. I didn't quote him and I'd NEVER do it... But the sentence itself is perfect."

Later, in a second post, he said "the speech had been written from various ideas linked to nationalist art that had been brought by his advisers". He did not comment on the music that played in the video in any of his posts.

Among those who called for him to be fired was the Speaker of the lower house of Brazil's Congress, Rodrigo Maia, who said Mr Alvim had "gone beyond all limits" with an "inacceptable" video.

The Brazilian Israelite Confederation said: "To emulate [Goebbels'] view... is a frightening sign of his vision of culture, which must be combated and contained."

[Responding to tweets saying that atheists are more familiar with the Bible than Christians]

It's a foreign concept to most people reading this post, but Christians were once willing and able to impose a cost--though more economic and social--for violating the moral traditions of the Church.

What happened? Christians in the West spent so long living among other Christians that our defenses atrophied--much like people who are never exposed to pathogens develop weak immune systems.

Now that the social and economic costs are being levied against Christians, lukewarm and nominal hangers-on are boiling off. Those who remain are like survivors of a plague--immune to the same attack. And the enemy has only one tactic.

The increasingly shrill--and yes, desperate--babbling from the Death Cult betrays their awareness of this dynamic. To their credit, they do have a base, animal sense of which way the wind is blowing which keeps them more in tune with the currents of social change than most Christians.

The tweets above, and the myriad others like it, don't arise from triumphal gloating over a cornered foe. They are the nervous mutterings of inmates who are locked here with us in the civilization we built.

You can impose your own costs on the Death Cult. Don't give money to people who hate you. Support Christian authors who want to entertain you. The first book in Glen Sprigg's Cameron Vail Mysteries is now only 99 cents. Buy it now!

A little more US history then, to bring you up on events, back then.

Blacks committed 5,000 race riots 1963-1973 to "Win" their civil rights laws. IE Terrorist laws. Here's a few.

A few of the many, many riots of 1964.

1. New York City–July 18-23–1 killed–144 injured–519 arrested– 541 stores damaged! (16 days after CRA of 64 was made Law)

2. Rochester–July 24-25–4 killed–350 injured– 976 arrested–204 stores damaged. (22 days after CRA of 64 was made Law)

3. Jersey City–August 2-4--46 injured–52 arrested– 71 stores damaged. (31 days after CRA of 64 was made Law)

4. Paterson–August 11-13–8 injured–65 arrested–20 stores damaged. (40 days after CRA of 64 was made Law)

5. Elizabeth–August 11-13–6 injured–18 arrested–17 stores damaged. (40 days after CRA of 64 was made Law)

6. Chicago (Dixmoor) August 16-17–57 injured–80 arrested–2 stores damaged. (45 days after CRA of 64 was made Law)

7. Philadelphia–August 28-30– 341 injured–774 arrested–225 stores damaged. (59 days after CRA of 64 was made Law)

PS. How blacks got their civil rights laws p#$%$ed.

From Congressional Record, as DC burned 1968. Rep. Edwards of Alabama

“In this atmosphere of violence, riots, looting, and burning, charged with emotions, we are asked to legislated. People are saying that now we must p#$%$ the civil rights bill. And we are told that it must be done now ---- without proper debate. Just p#$%$ it and get the riots stopped. But what happens then? Where does it stop? Must we p#$%$ a new law every time there is a riot?”

Plus, Blacks killed more White US Military officers in Viet Nam than the 'enemy' did.

‘News Flash’

US military racially fractured, very volatile and at war with itself! Federal Governments Power crippled!

Historian Terry Anderson of Texas A&M University: “The US Army itself does not know exactly how many .... (white) officers were murdered. But, they know of at least 600 were murdered, and then they have another 1400 that died mysteriously. Consequently by early 1970, the army [was] at war not with the enemy but with itself.”

“We were at war stateside, as well. I was among 6,000 soldiers of the 82nd Airborne Division that occupied Washington DC in the aftermath of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. #$%$#$%$ination, April 1968. Black troops made up about half of the divisions line units. We were aware that the near-lily white New Jersey National Guard had gone on a killing rampage on the streets of Newark the previous year, and we made it unmistakably clear to white soldiers that no harm was to come to the DC (black) population. Nobody got hurt. The Black soldiers of the 82nd had the “critical m#$%$” to kick #$%$, (mutiny) if provoked.” Glen Ford

Joseph Kay #racist amren.com

Let’s begin with the obvious: Every effort, no matter how well-intentioned, carefully planned, and expensive, has failed to transform blacks into whites. Statistically, blacks are about where they were in the 1960s, and what progress has occurred can be attributed to government coercion, policies like affirmative action, and make-work jobs. Moreover, nothing on the horizon hints at progress and if anything, the blackening of cities like Detroit, Newark, and Philadelphia suggests that things will only get worse as blacks increasingly take control of their own destiny.

Archbishop John Myers #fundie cruxnow.com

Even as Pope Francis and Catholic leaders from around the world debate ways to make the Catholic Church more inclusive, Newark Archbishop John Myers has given his priests strict guidelines on refusing Communion to Catholics who, for example, support gay marriage or join an organization that rejects Church teaching.

In the two-page memo, Myers also orders parishes and Catholic institutions not to host people or organizations that disagree with the Church.

He says Catholics, “especially ministers and others who represent the Church, should not participate in or be present at religious events or events intended to endorse or support those who reject or ignore Church teaching and Canon Law.”

...The memo is titled “Principles to Aid in Preserving and Protecting the Catholic Faith in the Midst of an Increasingly Secular Culture.” It is dated Sept. 22 and was sent to priests this week, according to a source who provided a copy to Religion News Service.

In the memo, Myers writes: “The Church will continue to cherish and welcome her members and invite them to participate in her life to the degree that their personal situation permits them honestly to do so.

“Catholics,” he continues, “must be in a marriage recognized as valid by the Church to receive Holy Communion or the other sacraments. Non-Catholics and any Catholic who publicly rejects Church teaching or discipline, either by public statements or by joining or supporting organizations which do so, are not to receive the Sacraments.”

Nissan Slomiansky and Bezalel Smotrich #fundie failedmessiah.typepad.com

[Link in original]

Israel’s Ministerial Committee for Legislation will decide tomorrow if it will back legislation that would sometimes require Israel’s secular courts to issue rulings on the basis of halakha (Orthodox Jewish law), Ha’aretz reported. Courts would be required to rely on halakha when existing case law does not provide a clear decision in the matter at hand.

The bill is sponsored by two members of Knesset from the right-wing Zionist Orthodox HaBayit HaYehudi Party, Nissan Slomiansky and Bezalel Smotrich.

[...]

A law passed in 1980, after Israel’s right-wing led by Menachem Begin formed a bloc with haredim and took Knesset, orders secular courts to use Jewish heritage when ruling on a matter that cannot be otherwise resolved through existing law or judicial precedent. Secular court judges, the 1980 law says, should base their rulings on “the principles of freedom, justice, integrity and peace of Jewish heritage.”

But, Slomiansky and Smotrich claim, judges rarely do this because the law is vaguely worded and because the secular courts are allowed to rule by inferring judgements from alternative secular legal sources.

The new law proposed by Slomiansky and Smotrich says that in cases in which a legal matter has no judicial precent, case law or actual Knesset-passed law to resolve it, secular court judges would have to turn to halakha to find a source for their ruling before using alternative secular legal sources (like, for example, case law from other Western democracies).

The new law would also spell out where in the vast compendium of halakha secular judges should look to for their rulings. The proposed law’s language explicitly says “judges may rule on the basis of the Code of Jewish Law.”

[...]

The Israel Democracy Institute points out that the 1980 law mandates that if a secular court doesn’t resolution to an issue of law in existing case law by allowed inference, it must rule “in the light of the principles of freedom, justice, integrity and peace of Jewish heritage” – wording which makes clear secular law and existing legal precedents take precedence over halakha.

But the new bill proposed by Slomiansky and Smotrich changes this order of hierarchy and inserts halakha into the judicial process before legal inference. The proposed bill also removes the phrase “the principles of freedom, justice, integrity and peace of Jewish heritage” and replaces it with the term “halakha.” That gives short shrift to Jewish theology (for instance, the theology of the great medieval Jewish scholars known as the Rishonim) and commands secular judges to rely on a compendium of halakha that is by no means the final word on Jewish law.

Don't wear pants in the presence of the Pope

We defend that women should not wear pants. We sustain that women dressing as men is against Natural Law and Catholic Morals.

But if it were acceptable for women to commonly wear trousers, it would never be the case to do so in the presence of the Pope. The impropriety increases when the lady is the Chancellor of Germany and is receiving the Sovereign Pontiff, himself a German, on an official visit to the country.

However, this is what Chancellor Angela Merkel chose to do.

An educated woman like Merkel could not be unaware that there is a rigorous protocol on how ladies should dress before the Pope. So, one is led to wonder whether she - who is Protestant and the daughter of a Lutheran pastor - chose this apparel on purpose to scorn the Catholic Church and the Pope. In any circumstance, even if she did not do it to scorn the Pope, this is certainly an example not to be followed.

Don't wear pants, but especially if you will be before the Pope.

Redhorse Woman explains Jehovah's Witness position of authority #fundie topix.com

A JW woman can have no position of authority in the congregation. For that matter, if a 12-year-old JW boy is baptized and he is the only male in a group of older women, HE is the one who will offer prayer, and, if they are going out in field service, HE is the one who will make the decisions.

If a JW woman is highly trained in a certain field, and is working with an inexperienced JW male in her field of expertise (as in, perhaps, some sort of building project) SHE will have to acquiesce to the inexperienced male, even though SHE is the one who should, logically, be leading the group.

The first "step up" for a JW male is to be assigned to handle microphones or do some other minimal "privilege" in the congregation. After that, he can be appointed as a Ministerial Servant, and then, possibly an Elder. Within the body of Elders, there are various positions, with Presiding Overseer being the top position at the congregation level.

There are many other titles within the JW hierarchy...all of which are reserved for men.

The Vedic civilization, according to the ancient scriptures, was at a much higher level of development than our modern society. In Sanskrit “veda” means knowledge. So what kind of knowledge are we talking about? From the standpoint of current evolutionary theory, the human race is supposed to be at the top of the society development. However, according to the Vedic literature, in a distant past there have been civilizations in the world, the greatness of which we cannot even imagine. A detailed study of the Vedic texts was held in Bombay in 1975.

It was a scientific “explosion” in physicist circles when the scientists have discovered the vivid description of subatomic level in the Vedas written some five thousand years ago. For example, it is stated in the Bhagavata Purana: “The material manifestation’s ultimate particle, which is indivisible and not formed into a body, is called the atom – Param anuh. It exists always as an invisible identity, even after the dissolution of all forms. The material body is but a combination of such atoms, but it is misunderstood by the common man. ” (Bhagavata Purana 3.11.1) In the same Bhagavata Purana the different time scales are explained, starting with the atomic. The theory of relativity and quantum physics can be substantially supplemented by information from the Sanskrit texts. Aryans were well aware of such concepts as superconductivity, nuclear and plasma weapons not to mention electricity.

The Mahabharata, an ancient historical epic, describes the use of nuclear weapons as follows: “It was as if all the nature’s forces have been suddenly unleashed. Something dazzling like the sun revolved in circles. Burned with a heat of this weapon, the world was staggering, as in a fever. Elephants caught fire from the heat and rushed wildly hither and thither in search of protection from the terrible power. Water in the sea turned hot, the animals were dying, the foes were killed and trees were falling in rows under the fury of the forest fire. Elephants blew their trunks fiercely and fell dead on the ground. Horses and chariots were burned on the spot. Thus, thousands of enemy chariots were destroyed, and then deep silence descended on the sea. Wind began to blow and the earth shined. It was a terrible sight. The corpses of the fallen were mutilated by terrible heat so that they no longer resembled people. Never before have we seen such a terrible weapon and did not hear about it. ” (Drona-parva)

The Vedic texts contain a large number of descriptions of different types of weapons, ranging from primitive stone throwing slings (sarvatobhadra), wall smashing mechanisms (udghatima), to all sorts of high velocity dart throwing devices (yantra-sara), and ending with weapons which damaging force does not have modern analogues. The tenth canto of Bhagavata Purana describes the various battles with weapons of extraordinary power. Those battles were fought by our ancient ancestors inhabited the planet, as well as representatives from other worlds. “… Then demon Bhaumasura immediately released the fire weapon, known as shatagnhi, by which he could kill hundreds of soldiers with one stroke.” (Bhagavata purana 10.59.15) There were weapons similar to raging nature’s forces. “… He (Vasudeva) contaracted brahmastra with another brahmastra, and the air weapon – with the mountain weapon”.

So on one side they used the “vayavya-astra” weapon, causing severe hurricane on the battlefield, and in order to counteract it the opposite side immediately used the so-called ” mountain weapon ” which just like a mountain could block the air flow and eliminate it completely. The weapon “shiva-jvara” is described as heat, which is twelve times more powerful than heat of the sun, and the weapon “narayana-jvara” represents the unbearable cold. “By that time, almost all the warriors of Shalva were killed, but when he saw that Vasudeva has arrived on the battlefield, he set in motion a terrible weapon of extraordinary power, which flew with a roar in the sky like a giant meteor. It shone with a dazzling, illuminating the sky… “ It is obvious that our ancestors were much more highly developed than we are today. Comparing to them we look like babies, at least in technical terms. “ It was not an easy task to enter into the city of Prajyotisha-pura, because it was very well fortified. First of all, there were four formidable forts guarding the four directions of the city, and it was well-protected on all sides by formidable military strength. The next boundary was a water canal all around the city, and in addition the whole city was surrounded with electric wires. The next fortification was of anila, a gaseous substance. After this, there was a network of barbed wiring constructed by a demon of the name Mura.” (Bhagavata Purana, 10 canto)

It appeared that the city was well-protected even in terms of today’s scientific advancement. In Vedic literature there are many references to flying saucers. In general, they are called the vimana. Vimanas in the Vedas are divided into two categories: 1) the mechanical machines, similar to airplanes and flying with wings like a bird; 2) and very complex machines that can not be precisely classified, which had unlimited possibilities. Machines of the first category are described mainly in medieval writings in Sanskrit, along with other various automatic devices and military machines. For example, Bhoja describes an aircraft made of lightwood, which looked like a bird with two wings. The driving force of the apparatus was generated in the fire chamber with mercury, installed on it, as well as flapping wings of the machine.

The devices of the second category are described in ancient books, such as the Rig Veda, the Mahabharata, Ramayana and Puranas, and their description in many ways are similar to modern descriptions of UFOs. The main work in Sanskrit, which includes the classification of ships of all kinds, is called Vimanika-shastra. This work also reveals all sorts of technologies that are known today, such as telephone and television, though, working on an entirely different, unknown to today’s science principles.

Here’s how the vimanas are described in the Ramayana: “The ship of Rakshasa king (type of demonic creatures) Ravana was amazing. Its walls were glittering, incrusted with diamonds, and the windows were skillfully decorated with gold. The ship could fly in any trajectory, regardless of wind direction, subject only to request of a pilot. He could stand still in the sky at any height, resembling a great shining mountain. The ship had a symmetrical design; the towers of the great artistic work were completed with domes, like mountain peaks. The viman could change its appearance through a variety of devices. After landing, it could camouflage itself as a mountain, lit up by the risen moon. Inside this beautiful spaceship resembled a palace with halls, rooms, swimming pools, etc.”

When we think of our ancestors, according to modern tradition, the image suggests a primitive ape-man with a hefty cudgel in his hands. However, the Vedic descriptions paint a different picture: “I have heard that Visvavasu, the great Gandharva (type of celestial singers), his mind stupefied with infatuation, fell from his airplane after seeing your daughter playing with a ball on the roof of the palace – harmya-prishthe, for she was indeed beautiful with her tinkling ankle bells and her eyes moving to and fro.” (Bhagavata Purana 3.22.17)

It is understood that not only at the present moment but in those days also there were skyscrapers. Herein we find the word harmya-prishthe. The literal translation of the word “harmya” is “a very high palace.” Svad vimanat means “from his own airplane.” It is suggested that private airplanes existed several thousand years ago. There are even descriptions of the whole flying cities, spreading for several square miles. For example, Hastinapura – a moving city, was well armed and protected against external enemies… Mathematics, mechanics and related engineering discipline could be raised to a new level thanks to the Vedic scriptures. In Sanskrit, a machine is called “yantra” which is explained in the Vedic literature as “a device that controls and directs the movement of objects in accordance with their characteristics.”

There are many types of yantras. A simple example might be a taila-yantra – the wheel, pushed by a bull in circles for oil pressing from seeds. Technical devices and machines of the ancient Aryans still amaze us with the level of their engineering skill. There are many plausible descriptions of robots, which were kept at the royal palaces, such as singing and dancing birds, resembling the living ones, clocks with moving figures, and various astronomical models, showing the motion of the planets. There were robots designed in the form of male and female figures that performed various functions. They were made mostly of wood, but perfectly covered with humanlike skin. Their motions were provided by the system of bolts, iron rods, springs and grooves. These figures played musical instruments, served drinks to guests and did other similar services. Yantrapurusha or man-machine could behave exactly like a real human. It is described in Bhagaya-vastu how an artist visited home of the yantracharya, or a teacher of mechanical engineering. There he was met by a robot-girl who washed his feet and had a resemblance of a real person until he realized that she was unable to speak. However, it is known that there were even speaking and absolutely fantastic sounding robots.

Are we able now, with all our modern science and computer technology, to repeat a similar level of inventive skill? Can we believe that the technical progress, as it is described in the Vedas, has really existed on Earth? Are Sanskrit texts the only proof of greatness of that ancient civilization? In order to answer these questions, it would be sufficient to analyze briefly the most famous archaeological monuments of antiquity. For example, in Delhi there is a metal column, known worldwide as “a pillar of Indra.” For several millennia, it has resisted the influence of precipitation, with no trace of rust. The column is made of atomic iron, without admixture of carbon and sulfur at the molecular level. In our time, it is possible to reproduce such a perfectly pure iron only with the sputter coating technique in the outer space and only in small quantities. The height of “Indra’s pillar” corresponds to the three-storey house, in fact, the column goes under the earth for a few tens of meters. How did they do it, what mechanisms were used to produce this miracle?

In the Hari Bhakti Vilas, written by Sanatana Goswami, it is said: “As bell metal (bronze) is turned into gold when mixed with mercury in an alchemical process, so in that very way, by the process of proper initiation by a bona fide spiritual master – diksa vidhanena, a person becomes a brahmana.” (Hari Bhakti Vilasa 2.12) The Vedas can give us tremendous knowledge, both material and spiritual. The greatest culture of people, who could turn a simple bronze into gold, is definitely able to revive our morally degraded society and add great deal of value to our lives.

A lot of prime locations are totally wasted due to blacks.

South-Central LA is 44 square miles, right between Downtown and the beach. It is *prime*, as every other major part of LA is within 12 miles of the periphery of South-Central, if not for blacks.

Oakland is a superb suburb for San Francisco, right between SF and Berkeley. Alas, blacks have made it uninhabitable.

The Bronx, Newark, and Harlem section of Manhattan are all prime locations that are ruined.

Entire cities like Detroit, DC-Baltimore, the southern half of Chicago, most of urban Cleveland, etc. could all be great if not for blacks.

Gilad Atzmon #racist gilad.co.uk

The ultra Zionist settler outlet Israel National News reported yesterday that “Russian Jews slam ‘anti-Semitic myth’ that the country’s last tsar “was murdered by Jews for ritual purposes."

Marina Molodtsova, a senior investigator for a special ministerial committee on the 1917 slaying of Nicholas II of Russia, said on Monday during a conference in Moscow that her committee will conduct “a psycho-historical examination” to find out whether the execution of the royal family was a ritual murder. At the same event, Father Tikhon Shevkunov, a Russian Orthodox Church bishop, said that, according to “the most rigorous approach to the version of ritual murder, a significant part of the church commission [on Nicholas II’s killing during the Russian revolution of 1917] has no doubt that this murder was ritual.”

Far from being surprising the Jews are upset. “The Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia, a Chabad-affiliated group with more than 100 affiliated communities across Russia, called the suggestions a “shocking expression of an anti-Semitic myth” in a statement Monday.” Interestingly enough, the Jewish bodies are not upset by the verdict of the committee; they are actually distressed by the idea that the Russians decided to look into their past.

“We all think of this as absolutely unacceptable,” the federation’s spokesperson, Boruch Gorin, lamented, and “shocked first and foremost by the sheer absurdity of the allegations.”

The Israeli outlet reports that, “claims that Nicholas was killed by Jews for ritual purposes had been limited before the conference to a fringe of zealous anti-Semites and promoters of unsophisticated conspiracy theories.” Seemingly, this is not the case anymore. Israel National News explains, “amid rising nationalism and nostalgia for Tsarist times in Russia under President Vladimir Putin, a Russian court in 2010 ordered prosecutors to reopen an investigation into the murder of the Tsar and his family.”

I obviously have no opinion on the nature of the execution of the Tsar and his family. Like others I am looking forward to learning more, and will wait patiently for the investigating committee to deliver its study of the event. However, it is worth mentioning that not one historian questions the dominance of Jews within the Bolshevik revolution and the early communist leadership. Not many scholars of the era question the embarrassing fact that “Stalin's Jews” as Israeli prominent writer Sever Plocker names them, were “some of (the) greatest murderers of modern times”

Spokesman Boruch Gorin, who is also a senior aide to Berel Lazar, a chief rabbi of Russia, told Israel National News that, “Nicholas II’s killers were obviously committed atheists who rejected any belief in any force – except their own”. However, the blaming of Jews for the Tsar’s death is “an absolutely anti-Semitic myth used in anti-Semitic propaganda for several decades, which is why the Jews view this with great concern.”

I will make an effort to educate Gorin. Since the European Jewish emancipation, Jews are drifting away from Judaism and their means of identification are varied. As a matter of fact, Judaism is, by now, just one Jewish religion amongst many. The Holocaust seems to be the most popular Jewish religion. Atheism is also a popular Jewish religion. Human Rights is a widespread Jewish religion, however, not as popular as Zionism.

Jewish religions are diverse and often contradict each other. But they have one thing in common-- they all facilitate a sense of choseness – a clear vision of Jewish exceptionalism. Jewish religions all adhere to the strong belief in ‘The Jew.’ The Zionists who murdered Palestine were atheists. They adhered to the peculiar belief that Jews can celebrate their national aspirations at the expense of another people. They believed and still believe in their righteous cause. The many Jews who adhere to the Holocaust religion also believe in ‘The Jew,’ the one who, against all odds, survived the ashes, reinstated his/her power by means of national salvation. The ‘atheist’ Bolsheviks were no different; they believed themselves to be ‘better’ because they believed in equality. This force alone made them into a genocidal cult with no precedent in human history.

Were these Bolsheviks engaged in ritual killing? This is indeed a deep question with many aspects and layers. We will have to wait and see what the Russian committee has to say about it. However, the fact that Russian Jewish bodies are in a state of turmoil may as well be revealing.

Bill Donohue #fundie nytimes.com

Turning the tables on an advocacy group that has long supported victims of pedophile priests, lawyers for the Roman Catholic Church and priests accused of sexual abuse in two Missouri cases have gone to court to compel the group to disclose more than two decades of e-mails that could include correspondence with victims, lawyers, whistle-blowers, witnesses, the police, prosecutors and journalists.

The group, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, known as SNAP, is neither a plaintiff nor a defendant in the litigation. But the group has been subpoenaed five times in recent months in Kansas City and St. Louis, and its national director, David Clohessy, was questioned by a battery of lawyers for more than six hours this year. A judge in Kansas City ruled that the network must comply because it “almost certainly” had information relevant to the case.

The network and its allies say the legal action is part of a campaign by the church to cripple an organization that has been the most visible defender of victims, and a relentless adversary, for more than two decades. “If there is one group that the higher-ups, the bishops, would like to see silenced,” said Marci A. Hamilton, a law professor at Yeshiva University and an advocate for victims of clergy sex crimes, “it definitely would be SNAP. And that’s what they’re going after. They’re trying to find a way to silence SNAP.”

Lawyers for the church and priests say they cannot comment because of a judge’s order. But William Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, a church advocacy group in New York, said targeting the network was justified because “SNAP is a menace to the Catholic Church.”

Mr. Donohue said leading bishops he knew had resolved to fight back more aggressively against the group: “The bishops have come together collectively. I can’t give you the names, but there’s a growing consensus on the part of the bishops that they had better toughen up and go out and buy some good lawyers to get tough. We don’t need altar boys.”

He said bishops were also rethinking their approach of paying large settlements to groups of victims. “The church has been too quick to write a check, and I think they’ve realized it would be a lot less expensive in the long run if we fought them one by one,” Mr. Donohue said.

The British Jewish media is upset. Priti Patel, a cabinet minister responsible for international development, had no fewer than 14 meetings with Israeli politicians and political leaders. It seems that Patel didn’t clear any or most of these meetings with the Foreign Office. So Patel had to go and but now the British Jewish media is pressing the panic button. The ultra Zionist Jewish Chronicle’s (JC) headline warns that the Patel Affair “will set us [the Jews] back 20 years.” The JC predicts that it will have “a devastating impact on British Jewry.” It may even “bolster antisemitic conspiracy theories and damage relationships with British politicians for a generation.”

This is the crux of the matter -- Jews hate ‘Jewish conspiracy theories.’ Why? Because Jews do not conspire or operate in clandestine manner. They do it all in the open. Jews wrote the Balfour Declaration on behalf of Lord Balfour and made sure everyone knows who really wrote it. They make sure we know that it was Leó Szilárd and Albert Einstein who initiated the Manhattan Project. AIPAC, CFI, LFI and the CRIF openly push for immoral interventionist wars in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Iran while JC writers Nick Cohen and David Aaronovitch advocate these global wars in the media. All this is not merely a ‘Zionist agenda.’ Jewish anti Zionists employ the same technique to claim that it is down to progressive Jews to define the boundaries of free speech on Israel. I reiterate -there are no Jewish conspiracies. Everything is done in the open. And this was Patel’s mistake. She foolishly attempted to conceal her loyalty to our foreign rulers.

In a country led by Theresa Je suis Juif, there is no reason for minister Patel to hide her subservience to the Jewish Sate. In a country where the biggest lobby group in the parliament is the Conservative Friends of Israel there is no reason for a minister to be shy about what may seem to be disloyal inclinations. With 80% of the leading party listed as CFI members, treachery is the norm. Patel didn’t have to hide her allegiance to the Jewish State, she should have done it all in the open, like the PM and Sir Eric Pickles (see picture above).

The JC confirms that the “CFI is the largest group in Westminster with an open line to almost every Tory MP, dozens of other countries’ diplomatic and political groups, and influence in Downing Street for decades.” The JC doesn’t attempt to conceal how forceful the CFI is, however, it is honest enough to reveal that “one senior (Jewish) communal figure said CFI would now be regarded as ‘toxic’.” If you are looking for light Jewish entertainment, the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism (CAA) is the place to go. The CAA is a self-appointed Jewish thought police. It devotes its energies to the total castration of the Brits and their ability to think rationally, morally and independently. The CAA provides a spectacle of anti-ethical thought totally foreign to the Western ethos.

“The resignation of Priti Patel,” the CAA writes, “ has unleashed some disturbing comments, including from politicians and journalists who have carelessly or deliberately evoked sinister stereotypes of powerful Jews.”

Let’s examine what the CAA considers to be a ‘disturbance’ and what is it they don’t want us to say: In an article in The Times, Policy Editor, Oliver Wright and Political Editor, Francis Elliott, cited an unnamed senior Conservative MP: “Another senior Conservative MP claimed that Ms Patel planned to use her ministerial position in DfID (Department for International Development) to curry favour with Jewish Tory donors by supporting Israel. ‘The Israel lobby in the Party is hugely influential and this was about Priti cynically trying to win their support. She thought she could be the next leader.”

Confusing, don’t you think? The JC admits that the CFI is the strongest body in Westminster, while the CAA insists that reference to CFI’s power and influence ‘evokes sinister Jewish stereotypes.’ The CAA openly attempts to police British journalism by stifling criticism of Israel. This shouldn’t take us by surprise. If Jewish power is the power to suppress criticism of Jewish power, here is the CAA exercising this power in broad daylight. But there is good news. This power in falling apart now, and this may explain the panic within the JC’s ranks and the tantrum thrown by the CAA and other Jewish thought police organisations (CST, ADL, Hope not Hate, et al).

The ‘rationale’ of the CAA policing strategy deserves close attention: “Under the International Definition of Antisemitism adopted by the British Government, ‘Making mendacious, dehumanising, demonising, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions’ is antisemitic.”

This is a revolutionary legal defence strategy. According to the CAA, X is not guilty of committing Y as long as X is stereotypically associated with committing Y. If X is guilty, for instance, of shoving a banana into someone’s eye (Y), the defence would be that shoving bananas into other people’s eyes (Y) is one of the stereotypes about X.

Similarly, the CAA claims it is anti-Semitic to refer to the Jewish Lobby as the strongest lobby in Westminster because the accusation is consistent with the Jewish stereotype of Jewish lobbies being influential. Likewise we should vindicate Harvey Weinstein of any wrong doing because Larry David admitted on Saturday Night Live that predatory behaviour has become a Jewish stereotype. I expect Bernie Madoff to capitalise on this line of defence and appeal for his immediate release. Alan Dershowitz can also come clean about his bad habits by blaming them on Jewish stereotypes.

The paradox here is obvious, The CAA’s circular argument has nothing to do with any consideration of ethics, truthfulness or correspondence with reality. The ‘stereotype’ redeems the sin. By this logic the CAA itself is innocent of any wrong thinking because such a Jerusalemite anti-ethical intellectual pattern is also a Jerusalemite stereotype.

The CAA practically calls upon British commentators and politicians to fib. “It is therefore incumbent upon those commenting on the Priti Patel affair to do so in a way that is proportionate and rational. It is a dangerous stretch to accuse Ms Patel of doing Israel’s bidding in order to please wealthy Jews who have the power to influence the selection of the next Conservative leader.” Neither the CAA nor any other Jewish body has offered an alternative rationale for Patel’s misconduct. The CAA demands that British journalists set aside their intelligence and common sense. They expect British politicians and commentators to put Jewish sensitivities first.

We are touching upon the core of Jerusalemite thinking – a tyranny of correctness that is removed from morality and Western ethos. Instead of ethics, we are told to follow Mitzvoth, regulations and commandments. For the Brits, Priti Patel is a wake up call. It is a final reminder that for the nation to sustain its values it must search for its Athenian roots: philosophy, science and ethics as opposed to a tyranny of correctness that is anti ethical and zero principled.

[Serious] Accusations of police brutality are analogues to accusations of rape or sexual harassment

The accusations themselves may or may not be true, but what they fail to account for is ethics (or lack therefore) on the part of the individual nogs/foids.

A nog who is engaged in criminal behaviors will naturally encounter a police officer one day, and if the police officer is brutal towards the thug nog -- a brutal creature himself -- then one can say that he was asking for it (in the sense of "tempting fate," or redeeming "negative karma").

Likewise, a foid who wears slutty clothing for attention and leads men on to her own advantage without empathy for them can be said to be asking for it when she encounters a man who is more deranged, manipulative, and psychopathic than even she is, and who gives her "just desserts" in the form of rape.

The fact that the media discourages people from thinking this way goes in line with liberal postmodernist philosophy, which spurns objective reality in favor of narcissistic "lived experiences." You are not supposed to identify patterns of behavior and think in terms of cause and effect under this dogma, but just uncritically believe in the self-centered viewpoints of the supposedly "marginalized minorities" -- more like pedestalized minorities tbhngl.

It all goes in line with power dynamics, as socially ascendant nogs/foids are given the privilege of being narcissistic, but socially descendant Whites and men (and White men in particular) are to be "critically deconstructed" and humiliated.

Feminist glaciology asks how knowledge related to glaciers is produced, circulated, and gains credibility and authority across time and space. It simultaneously brings to the forefront glacier knowledge that has been marginalized or deemed “outside” of traditional glaciology. It asks how glaciers came to be meaningful and significant (through what ontological and epistemological process), as well as trying to destabilize underlying assumptions about ice and environment through the dismantling of a host of boundaries and binaries. The feminist lens is crucial given the historical marginalization of women, the importance of gender in glacier related knowledges, and the ways in which systems of colonialism, imperialism, and patriarchy co-constituted gendered science. Additionally, the feminist perspective seeks to uncover and embrace marginalized knowledges and alternative narratives, which are increasingly needed for effective global environmental change research, including glaciology (Castree et al., 2014; Hulme, 2011). A combination of feminist postcolonial science studies and feminist political ecology provide the intellectual foundation for feminist glaciology.

Most existing glaciological research — and hence discourse and discussions about cryospheric change — stems from information produced by men, about men, with manly characteristics, and within masculinist discourses. These characteristics apply to scientific disciplines beyond glaciology; there is an explicit need to uncover the role of women in the history of science and technology, while also exposing processes for excluding women from science and technology (Phillips and Phillips, 2010; Domosh, 1991; Rose, 1993). Harding (2009) explains that the absence of women in science critically shapes “the selection of scientific problems, hypotheses to be tested, what constituted relevant data to be collected, how it was collected and interpreted, the dissemination and consequences of the results of research, and who was credited with the scientific and technological work” (Harding, 2009: 408). Scientific studies themselves can also be gendered, especially when credibility is attributed to research produced through typically masculinist activities or manly characteristics, such as heroism, risk, conquests, strength, self sufficiency, and exploration (Terrall, 1998). The tendency to exclude women and emphasize masculinity thus has far-reaching effects on science and knowledge, including glaciology and glacier related knowledges.

Feminist glaciology is rooted in, and combines, both feminist science studies and postcolonial science studies to meaningfully shift present-day glacier and ice sciences. While feminist science studies focuses explicitly on gender and the place (or absence) of women in science, it can neglect specific analyses of the social relations of colonialism and imperialism, emphasizing instead Western women without sustained attention to indigenous, non-Western, and local knowledge systems that are the centerpiece of postcolonial science studies (Harding, Carey et al. Phillips and Phillips, 2010; Schnabel, 2014). The postcolonial perspective is crucial for understanding glaciological knowledges because the science of glaciology has historically participated in the imperialist, colonial, and capitalist projects associated with polar exploration, mountain colonization, resource extraction, and Cold War and other geopolitical endeavors.

More recently, glaciology has also been central to earth systems science that often relies on remote sensing from satellite imagery to suggest broader claims of objectivity but is actually akin to the “god trick of seeing everything from nowhere” (Haraway, 1988: 581; also see Shapin, 1998). Questions about epistemology in climate science, ice coring, and glaciology are only beginning to be asked, especially focusing on Cold War polar glaciology (Martin-Nielsen, 2012, 2013; Elzinga, 2009; Korsmo, 2010; Naylor et al., 2008; Turchetti et al., 2008; Macdougall, 2004; Finnegan, 2004; Heymann et al., 2010; Bowen, 2005; Hulme, 2010). Of these studies probing the discipline of glaciology, only a tiny subset analyze gender (exceptions include Bloom, 1993; Bloom et al., 2008; Hulbe et al., 2010; Hevly, 1996) or approach human glacier interactions from the perspective of feminist postcolonial science studies or feminist political ecology (exceptions include Williams and Golovnev, 2015; Cruikshank, 2005). Fewer still recognize indigenous knowledges, local perspectives, or alternative narratives of glaciers, even though large populations of non-Western and indigenous peoples inhabit mountain and cold regions near glaciers and possess important knowledge about cryoscapes (Carey et al., 2015; Nu¨sser and Baghel, 2014; Drew, 2012).

Feminist and postcolonial theories enrich and complement each other by showing how gender and colonialism are co-constituted, as well as how both women and indigenous peoples have been marginalized historically (Schnabel, 2014). Feminist glaciology builds from feminist postcolonial science studies, analyzing not only gender dynamics and situated knowledges, but also alternative knowledges and folk glaciologies that are generally marginalized through colonialism, imperialism, inequality, unequal power relations, patriarchy, and the domination of Western science (Harding, 2009).

An additional theoretical foundation for feminist glaciology is feminist political ecology, which has generally emphasized unequal vulnerability and disproportionate global change impacts, but which also contributes significant research on knowledge production, ontologies, and epistemologies. With hundreds of millions of people utilizing glaciers for everything from drinking water and hydroelectricity to recreation and spiritual sites, the disproportionate vulnerabilities and disparate adaptive capacities in these societies are critical to acknowledge.

Feminist political ecology addresses how inequality and unequal power relations — mediated and co constituted through gender dynamics — have silenced the knowledge of people “most affected and marginalized by neoliberal, colonial, and patriarchal systems” (Hanson and Buechler, 2015: 6).

Crucially for feminist glaciology, feminist political ecology argues for the integration of alternative ways of knowing, beyond diverse women’s knowledges to include — more broadly — the unsettling of Eurocentric knowledges, the questioning of dominant assumptions, and the diversification of modes and methods of knowledge production through the incorporation of everyday lived experiences, storytelling, narrative, and visual methods (Harris, 2015). This inclusion of alternative knowledges and narratives alongside analysis of colonialism and inequality, such as race relations (Mollett and Faria, 2013), fits squarely into more recent feminist political ecologies that increasingly go “beyond gender”. This means that the research builds on “a history of boundary-breaking ideas [that] makes possible the present-day spaces where feminist geographers explore power, justice, and knowledge production, ideas that encompass but also surpass a focus on gender” (Coddington, 2015: 215).

Feminist glaciology raises critical conceptual, analytical, and epistemological questions that are largely absent in the 21st-century love affair with glaciers and ice. The framework offered here strives to open discussions, to introduce avenues of investigation, and to suggest ways forward not only for scientific enquiry that includes the environmental humanities and social sciences, but also for public perceptions of glaciers. Examples within this review and synthesis article are primarily meant to expose the value and various dimensions of the feminist glaciology framework; they are not meant to be comprehensive, but rather starting points to indicate lines of future investigation into this major gap in glacier studies and its related contribution to global environmental change research and both human and physical geography.

The muslims are so sick and demented in every way. The more I study them the more I despise their "culture."

Isn't it interesting how so many non-White cultures are disgusted by women? Just about every non-White culture essentially put women into harems (note that the Chinese and Indians thought muslim women were pretty liberated). The ones that did not do that essentially impregnated women and then ditched them (think of Africa). The men are basically raving pedophilic homos and the women have the mentality of livestock (as you said).

Anyway, that's why White men are men, White women are women, and others are merely "males or females of the species."

Pastor of St. Vincent de Paul School #fundie huffingtonpost.com

INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indiana teacher who says she was fired from a Roman Catholic school for using in vitro fertilization to try to get pregnant is suing in a case that could set up a legal showdown over reproductive and religious rights.

Emily Herx's lawsuit accuses the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend and St. Vincent de Paul school in Fort Wayne of discrimination for her firing last June. Herx, 31, of Hoagland, Ind., says that the church pastor told her she was a "grave, immoral sinner" and that a scandal would erupt if anyone learned she had undergone in vitro fertilization, or IVF.

The Roman Catholic Church shuns IVF, which involves mixing egg and sperm in a laboratory dish and transferring a resulting embryo into the womb. Herx said she was fired despite exemplary performance reviews in her eight years as a language arts teacher.

Legal experts say Herx's case illustrates a murky area in the debate over separation of church and state that even the U.S. Supreme Court has failed to clearly address.

Diocese officials said in a statement issued to The Associated Press on Wednesday that the lawsuit challenges its rights as a religious institution "to make religious based decisions consistent with its religious standards on an impartial basis."

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously in January that religious workers can't sue their employers for job discrimination because anti-discrimination laws allow for a "ministerial exception." But the justices failed to define who was and who wasn't a religious employee.

"The Supreme Court didn't give us a kind of neat little on-off test as to who's a minister and who isn't," said Rick Garnett, associate dean and professor of law at Notre Dame Law School.

In a similar case in Ohio, a federal judge last month gave the go-ahead for a trial in a lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Cincinnati by a parochial school teacher who was fired after she became pregnant through artificial insemination, which the church is also against. The archdiocese fired Christa Dias in 2010, saying the single woman violated church doctrine.

U.S. District Judge Arthur Spiegel said in his March 29 ruling that the ministerial exception did not apply because Dias was a non-Catholic computer teacher with no role in ministering or teaching Catholic doctrine.

Oh, it’s very simple. It’s absolutely very simple. I have a doctorate in sociology from NYU, and I know what the literature says. The literature is definitive. There is one gold standard, one gold standard for children. That is: there is no substitute for a marriage between a man and a woman. I want the law to discriminate against straight people who live together — I used to call it “shacking up,” but now it’s called cohabitation. I want the law to discriminate against all alternative lifestyles, against gays and unions. I want to promote and to put in a privileged position that institution of marriage between a man and a woman, which has been shown over and over to be the gold standard.

Joseph Schmitz #racist rawstory.com

One of Donald Trump’s top foreign policy advisors is trying to wrest control of a Montana dam from two Native American tribes as part of a bizarre anti-Muslim campaign.

Joseph Schmitz, an attorney and former Pentagon inspector general, was tapped as one of Trump’s five foreign policy advisors last month, along with a bewildering mix of conspiracy theorists and “third-rate people.”

Schmitz served as co-counsel in a lawsuit filed last year on behalf of Montana State Senator Bob Keenan (R-Bigfork) and former state Senator Verdell Jackson (R-Kalispell) asking a court to block the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes from taking over management of the former Kerr Dam, reported the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights.

The dam, which was built in the 1930s on tribal land, was renamed the Seli’š Ksanka Qlispe’ dam when the tribally owned Energy Keepers, Inc., paid nearly $18.3 million to NorthWestern Energy to acquire it.

That’s when things got weird.

Schmitz, who’s an “insider” with the right-wing Newsmax website and senior fellow at the virulently anti-Islam Center for Security Policy, and fellow co-counsel Lawrence Kogan filed a lawsuit seeking to block the transfer — which they argued posed a national security threat from Turkey.

The attorneys claimed the dam transfer would allow the Turkish government and terrorists to obtain nuclear materials, although they were unable to provide any factual evidence of their claims.

Turkey is an American ally and member of NATO, and the U.S. State Department considers the nation a key partner in its counterterrorism efforts in the Middle East.

“The nonprofit Nuclear Threat Initiative says Turkey is active in nuclear proliferation prevention efforts and is a member of all major treaties governing the acquisition and use of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons,” reported the Associated Press.

The claims are based on conspiracy theories about the Turkish Coalition of America, a nonprofit lobbying group that has been working to establish an agricultural trade relationship with Native American tribes.

Schmitz and Kogan, who boasts ties to the right-wing Citizens Equal Rights Alliance, warned that Turkey may be trying to “promote their brand of Islam” on reservations and produce yellowcake uranium using tribal resources.

“It is quite possible that the Turkish government, sponsored Turkish business enterprises, and affiliated terrorist groups or members may be seeking access to such expertise for possible acquisition and use of incendiary devices to compromise Kerr dam and/or other off-reservation targets,” the lawsuit claims.

Schmitz and Kogan voluntarily withdrew the lawsuit in October after they were unable to provide evidence of their claims about a terrorist alliance with Native Americans.

The lawsuit, and Trump’s embrace of Schmitz, highlights the links between anti-Muslim conspiracy theorists and efforts to strip Native Americans of their rights, property and heritage.

CERA, which essentially challenges Native American rights as unconstitutional, and its longtime leader Elaine Willman are part of a continuum of bigoted crackpots who promote white supremacist and other extremist fringe views through Tea Party organizations and on right-wing websites.

That’s the mindset Trump is bringing onto his foreign policy team.

Schmitz himself has written frequently about his fears of sharia law, multiculturalism and political correctness — all personal bugaboos for Trump — and has argued that Americans who receive public assistance should be barred from voting.

“Multiculturalism, political correctness, misguided notions of tolerance and sheer willful blindness have combined to create an atmosphere of confusion and denial in America about the current threat confronting the nation,” Schmitz wrote.

Trump’s anti-Muslims views are well known, but he doesn’t much like Native Americans, either.

He’s fought against the right of tribes to establish casinos under the 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, and he’s complained for years about his competitors in that business using racist remarks.

Trump, of course, is a huge fan of the Washington NFL team’s racist nickname.

“I know Indians that are extremely proud of that name,” he said. “They think it’s a positive.”

Since you are interested in the subject of rape, I hope you are following the unbelievable explosion of child rape in the Orthodox Jewish community and the intimidation—by family members—of victims. The pressure put on the D.A. to deep six these rapes is sickening. You need to do something about this epidemic right now. Suggestion: follow the reforms of the Catholic Church and you won’t have these problems.

Religion in school hit

Worcester humanists hear teen’s experience


WORCESTER— Matthew LaClair looked forward to taking his accelerated 11th-grade American history class, hoping to learn how the founding fathers, among other things, framed the U.S. Constitution to guarantee that the government would be free of religious influences.

The 16-year-old got more than he had hoped for — becoming the focus of a lingering separation of church and state controversy that some feel will be discussed for years to come in constitutional law classes.

Mr. LaClair, now 18, drew national media attention back in fall 2006 after complaining that David Paszkiewicz, his history instructor at Kearny High School in Kearny, N.J., was proselytizing.


The teen, who felt uncomfortable with what his teacher was saying, secretly taped eight classes, which revealed Mr. Paszkiewicz discussing his faith and telling his students that heavenly salvation could only be attained through Jesus Christ.

“I don’t have any problem with what he believes in,” said Mr. LaClair, who spoke yesterday afternoon at the annual summer outing of the Greater Worcester Humanists group. “But I do have a problem about him talking about his religion in a public high school and trying to convert his students.”
[snip]
What happened almost two years ago still bitterly divides the town of Kearny, a community of about 41,000 that’s located across the Passaic River from Newark. It also has provided further fodder in the long-running debate about the role of religion in public classrooms.

“I am saddened, frustrated, and just angry about how school officials handled the whole thing,” said Mr. LaClair.

He was surprised that most people in Kearny ended up supporting Mr. Paszkiewicz, a well-liked 16-year veteran of the school system.

Mr. LaClair said that even many longtime friends turned against him. One student sent him a death threat.

“He’s so convincing that you like to hear him talk,” said Mr. LaClair of his former teacher. “He’s charming and calming. I also think a lot of people thought that I was personally attacking Jesus and his faith. I never intended to do that.”
[snip]
According to Mr. LaClair, Mr. Paszkiewicz, during class time, advocated the theory of creationism, denigrated the beliefs of Muslims, and said that only Christians were destined for heaven. In one discussion, Mr. Paszkiewicz observed that dinosaurs were aboard Noah’s Ark.

“He basically said that if you didn’t follow Jesus you’d go to hell,” Mr. LaClair said.

With regard to the Church and the Alpha-Beta structures and dynamics, I personally believe that people who are actually controlling and calling the shots BELIEVE IN THE FAITH… because they are Satanists. I believe that the key Alphas in the Vatican and the key outposts in the Church, the people who send out the orders and are literally at war with God are literal Satan worshippers.

The “Beta” caste is the group that I have defined as those who “Don’t Actually Believe Any of That Bullshit” – and by “bullshit”, I mean Catholicism. I believe the massive bureaucracy that is, right now, before our very eyes, destroying the Church from the inside out, is almost entirely comprised of men who don’t believe any of it to start with, who think that actual Catholicism is all “bullshit”. They are the Beta DUPES, PATSYS, and WISEGUYS, groveling before and taking their cues and orders from a caste of psychopaths that literally worship Satan, and thus believe in all of it: The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, the existence of Hell and eternal damnation, the supernatural reality of The Church, and, interestingly, the words of The Mother of God, particularly at Fatima. Oh yes. The Satanists believe EVERY BIT OF IT. Make no mistake.

And yes, I believe that Bergoglio is in the Beta caste, and doesn’t believe in any of it, and thinks it is all bullshit. I think that Bergoglio is a bootlicking Beta Diabolical Narcissist that was installed precisely because he would do ANYTHING the Alphas wanted, not only because he is a DN with delusions of grandeur that craves Narcissistic Supply, but also because he is a profoundly unintelligent man, and thus very easy to manipulate and control. (If you’re thinking of Obama as a direct analogue at this point, you’re right on.)

The Alphas aren’t gunning to drive people OUT of The Church – they are gunning to get as many people to engage in Eucharistic desecration as possible. They want people coming and receiving the Eucharist in mortal sin. What they are doing is aimed, first and foremost, at “hurting” and “humiliating” God. The loss of souls to hell is secondary, and derivative of their hated of God and spite. They want people to go to hell precisely because God loves them. It is the Satanic inversion of the Second Great Commandment: hatred of man for the hatred of God. They don’t want to shoot the Bride of Christ in the head – they want to RAPE the Bride of Christ forever – and make God watch.

If you think this uncharitable of me, consider the alternative – that Bergoglio is an actual Satanist. I doubt it. The only thing Bergoglio worships and adores is Francis.

I'm so glad you people are fighting for the freedom of speech of 12 dead racists who depict girls kidnapped into sexual slavery as welfare queens. I'm so glad you're making their efforts seem noble and heroic. Because you're revealing that you're pretty damn reactionary, falling into the same damn sort of trappings that Bill Donohue here falls into.

Someone said that Charlie Hebdo has harmed nobody. That is a falsehood. Charlie Hebdo has been encouraging and perpetuating bigotry and racism in France. Their propaganda (let's not honor it by calling it "satire") is no different from the same kind of bullshit produced by the KKK.

It is this same mindset that has led to freedom of expression being revoked in France when the right to wear whatever you want was revoked just to antagonize the Muslims.
It is this same mindset that has led to Muslims being assaulted, having their houses burned or grenaded, by the people of France.
It is this same mindset that has led to the persecution of Jews in France.

Oh. But 12 white racists were murdered. And that's WAY more important than the rights of marginalized brown people.

Note that if you're gonna tell me I'm wrong, make sure that it involves counter-arguments that actually prove me wrong. Trying to defend what is happening is actually proving me right.

And believe me. Bill Donohue can go fuck himself. So can most of you, likewise.

(Excerpt from an e-mail sent out by Bill Donohue celebrating the failure of a bill that would have made it easier for victimcs of sexual abuse to bring cases against their abusers)

The bill was sold as justice for the victims of sexual abuse, when, in fact, it was a sham: the proposed legislation that failed to make it to the floor of the New York State legislature in the wee hours of Saturday (the session that began on Friday ended at 5:00 a.m. the next day), was a vindictive bill pushed by lawyers and activists out to rape the Catholic Church.

If the statute of limitations were lifted on offenses involving the sexual abuse of minors, the only winners would be greedy and bigoted lawyers out to line their pockets in a rash of settlements. The big losers would be the poor, about whom the attorneys and activists care little: When money is funneled from parishioners to lawyers, services to the needy suffer. The Catholic League is proud of its role in this victory.

“We already knew that Mark Foley claims he’s an alcoholic who suffers from mental illness, and yesterday his lawyer told us what everyone in Washington already knew—Foley is gay. What apparently no one knew was that Foley was allegedly abused by a clergyman when he was a teenager in high school. Since Foley is a Catholic, the suggestion is that a priest abused him.

(...)
“As for the alleged abuse, it’s time to ask some tough questions. First, there is a huge difference between being groped and being raped, so which was it Mr. Foley? Second, why didn’t you just smack the clergyman in the face? After all, most 15-year-old teenage boys wouldn’t allow themselves to be molested. So why did you?”

That was an interesting, if depressing, post about the bizarre behaviour of Model-Korean Harvard undergraduate Eldo Kim. Not for the first time — especially as I know many worthy and fully qualified people whom Harvard rejected (not coincidentally white gentile Americans) and a goodly number of cretins (the overwhelming majority not white gentile Americans, despite Harvard’s being in Massachusetts and founded by and for such Americans) upon whom Harvard bestowed the social Golden Ticket of admission — I find a Harvard story illuminates the pathologies of America in the grip of the multicultural Left.
In his post, the commenter Steve mentions what may the biggest single problem about Harvard — along, that is, with its diabolical embrace of every lethal social trend Liberalism can conjure up, and its disproportionate role in shoving them all down the collective throat of unenthusiastic Americans:
…I believe Asians are probably around 25 percent of the Harvard undergrad student body. For male students (more likely to commit this kind of crime) maybe you have another 30 percent Jewish (there tend to be more Jewish males than females at Harvard for whatever reason) and maybe another 15 percent other minority. This leaves less than a third of the male student body who would be non-Jewish white (despite making up a much larger percentage of the general U.S. population).
As Jewish Harvard alumnus Ron Unz demonstrated in his underappreciated article of last year, The Myth of American Meritocracy, the United States has an elite university system that actively despises and excludes ordinary Americans, and does so with extraordinary brazenness — presuming, so far correctly, that white gentile Americans are too cowed to make a fuss about it. In Myth Unz focuses on admissions practices at Harvard, Yale and Princeton (“HYP”), but really concentrates on Harvard. No doubt, as a Harvard alum, of those three moral and intellectual Superfund sites Harvard is the one Unz knows best and where he has the most contacts.
The part of Myth the media briefly noticed was the first half, where Unz addresses discrepancies in admissions of Asians — by which he really means Orientals, which makes this relevant to the case of violence-prone peace activist Eldo Kim. Unz concluded that Asian applicants are held to a higher standard than (some) others, and thus HYP are holding their numbers down lest their campuses be transformed into ivy-garlanded Chinatowns.
The second part the media buried instantly: Unz’s two controversial conclusions. The first is that while Asians may be discriminated against to some extent in HYP — especially H — admissions, they are not discriminated against to anything like the same degree as white gentile Americans, over whom those putatively discriminated-against Asians are still preferred. The second is the radioactive conclusion, one Unz could publicly acknowledge reaching only because he is both Jewish and a Harvard grad: HYP — again, especially H — discriminate outrageously in favor of Jewish applicants, to a degree not remotely explained by superior Jewish scholastic performance (something Unz demonstrates is by now largely a myth anyway, relative to high-achieving white gentile Americans). This Unz attributes primarily to ethnic nepotism, witting or otherwise, on the part of largely Jewish admissions staffs at HYP. Unz is bracingly frank about the extent to which HYP and several other universities in the United States have effectively become Jewish institutions. In that context, Unz makes two further points: (i) Jewish applicants are not disadvantaged by the “need” to reject qualified applicants in order to admit the “appropriate” quotas of blacks and Latin Americans, and therefore (ii) white gentile Americans pay the Affirmative Action tariff in full. Indeed — as Espenshade and Radford noted in their study — traditional American extra-curricular activities (4-H, JROTC, etc.) actively harm one’s chances of admission to HYP and their analogues.
In criticising you for drawing what he thinks is an unwarranted conclusion about Asian criminality based on Kim’s misbehaviour at Harvard (which I don’t think you did), Steve misses the big issue even though it is right there in his comment. From the point of view of ordinary Americans — by whom I mean white gentile ones, who are still overwhelmingly the largest group in the U.S. population and include the descendants of nation’s settlers and founders — the United States’ elite universities, which for better or worse (mostly worse) are primary feeders into the national elite, are enemy territory. They are largely run by and for the benefit of people who often have no or only shallow roots in America, are often viscerally hostile to the traditional America, and exercise their hostility by keeping their schools’ drawbridges firmly up in the face of what one might well call traditional Americans. Those Americans should find that situation intolerable, but most entirely fail to notice it, except to grumble about the obvious discrimination in favor of blacks and Hispanics. Even when someone like Ron Unz — who actually knows the score — tells the truth about it, his article can only see print in a magazine he owns and publishes himself. And, of course, the rest of the media buried what Unz revealed just as soon as they could.
It may be odd that young Harvard Man Kim thinks sending bomb threats is good way to bolster his GPA. But not nearly as odd as that a 377-year-old American (or used to be) college is full of Eldo Kims in the first place.

Bishop Morlino of Madison displayed courage rare among American bishops when he published a letter this weekend which gets right to the heart of the matter of the abuse of children within the Catholic Church. Here is what he said, in part:
It is time to admit that there is a homosexual subculture within the hierarchy of the Catholic Church that is wreaking great devastation in the vineyard of the Lord. The Church’s teaching is clear that the homosexual inclination is not in itself sinful, but it is intrinsically disordered in a way that renders any man stably afflicted by it unfit to be a priest. And the decision to act upon this disordered inclination is a sin so grave that it cries out to heaven for vengeance, especially when it involves preying upon the young or the vulnerable. Such wickedness should be hated with a perfect hatred. Christian charity itself demands that we should hate wickedness just as we love goodness. But while hating the sin, we must never hate the sinner, who is called to conversion, penance, and renewed communion with Christ and His Church, through His inexhaustible mercy.

At the same time, however, the love and mercy which we are called to have even for the worst of sinners does not exclude holding them accountable for their actions through a punishment proportionate to the gravity of their offense. In fact, a just punishment is an important work of love and mercy, because, while it serves primarily as retribution for the offense committed, it also offers the guilty party an opportunity to make expiation for his sin in this life (if he willingly accepts his punishment), thus sparing him worse punishment in the life to come. Motivated, therefore, by love and concern for souls, I stand with those calling for justice to be done upon the guilty.

There is plenty to be said about his appropriate and necessary call to hatred of sin — a call you rarely hear from leaders of the Catholic Church, or any other church — but the first sentence of that paragraph is most notable. Here is a high ranking official in the Church admitting, finally, that there is a "homosexual subculture within the hierarchy" which is directly linked to the sex abuse scandals.

It is important to emphasize that this is not a matter of a bunch of individual gay priests who just so happened to wind up in the Church. There is an actual gay culture, as the Bishop notes — or a "homosexual undergound," as another report puts it — and it is "wreaking devastation." Last week I mentioned the priest in Tampa who revealed just how this organized network of homosexuals operates and what sort of tactics they use to intimidate and blackmail other priests into silence. Do those who wish to deny the link between homosexuality and the abuse crisis believe that this priest is making up stories? Why would he make up stories? What does he gain from it?

And is this report from Catholic News Agency made up? It exposes a rampant gay culture in the Archdiocese of Newark, where the homosexual predator Cardinal McCarrick was archbishop for a number of years:
Seminarians and priests from ordination classes spanning 30 years, during the terms of McCarrick and Myers, reported to CNA that they had observed an active homosexual subculture of priest and seminarians within Newark’s Immaculate Conception Seminary.

One priest ordained in the early years of McCarrick’s term in Newark said that “a lot of people lost their innocence in the seminary.”

He told CNA that there were two distinct groups of students. “You had the men who were there because they had a deep love of the Lord and a vocation to serve his Church,” he said, adding that those men were the majority of seminarians.

“But there was a subculture, with its own group of men, that was openly homosexual and petty and vindictive with everyone else,” he explained.

The same priest said that before he entered the seminary he was warned he would “see things that weren’t right.” He said he was counseled by an older priest to “just remember who you are and why you are there.”

Several Newark priests told CNA that the same atmosphere existed under Archbishop John Myers, who led the archdiocese from 2001-2016.

One priest who studied during that period recalled being told, as a newly arrived seminarian, to lock his bedroom door at night to avoid “visitors.”

“I thought they were kidding – they really weren’t,” he said.

Another priest told CNA that, as a senior seminarian and transitional deacon, young seminarians would come to him in tears.

“They were just so scandalized by what they saw, these upperclassmen flagrantly carrying on with each other in gay relationships.”

A third priest says that these seminarians were frequently visited by other priests of the diocese, some of whom he later saw at the rectory cocktail parties.

“There was definitely a group of, well I guess we’re calling them ‘uncles’ now. They would come by to visit with the effeminate crowd, bring them stuff and take them out,” he said.

If you're wondering what those "rectory cocktail parties" consisted of, here are a few details:
One recalled that he attended a cocktail party, thinking he had been invited to a simple priests’ dinner.

“I was led into the room to a chorus of wolf-whistles,” he said. “It was clear right away I was ‘on display.’”

Another priest told CNA that he was also invited to a party hosted by the priest. “They were all carrying big mixed drinks, pink ones, it was like something out of Sex in City.”

He recalled that after asking for a beer, he was told by his host, “you need to try something more girly tonight.”

All recounted overtly sexual conversation at the cocktail parties. “I was fresh meat and they were trying me out,” one priest said.

All three said they left quickly upon realizing what was going on.

“Everyone was getting loaded and getting closer on the couches, I wanted out of there,” a priest told CNA.

“Everyone kept calling me a ‘looker’ and saying they had to ‘keep me around’ from now on,” a third Newark priest told CNA.

The current Archbishop of Newark, Cardinal Tobin, released a letter denying the existence of a gay culture in the archdiocese. But before you decide whether to take him seriously, keep in mind that this is the same liberal Cardinal who endorsed an "LGBT pilgrimage and Mass" in Newark. And it is the same Cardinal who recently and mysteriously tweeted and then deleted, "Nighty, night baby. I love you." He claimed it was supposed to be a private message to his sister. I suppose it is possible that the liberal, gay-apologist Cardinal of an archdiocese where priests attend gay cocktail parties meant to send a private message like that to his 65-year-old sister, but a reasonable person may have his suspicions.

We must evaluate the sort of bishops and priests who are crying out about the problem of homosexuality within the priesthood, and the sort of bishops and priests who are denying that such a problem exists, and decide which group is more credible. Personally, I have a much easier time trusting Bishop Molino than Cardinal Nighty Night and his ilk.
And once we have accepted the fact that homosexuality represents a serious challenge within the priesthood, it begins to make sense that the great majority of abuse victims have been males. If homosexuality within the Church were not a problem, why wouldn't the great majority of abuse victims have been female, as per the distribution of sexual orientation within the population at large? To ignore a problem that contributes to the abuse of male children in the priesthood is politically correct at best, and dangerous at worst.

Suburbs began shortly following the 1954 Brown v Board of Education holding which mandated integration of schools. Gee, look at the unequivocal correlation: The US used to lead the world in education – we went to the moon – and now we are 36th. Then LBJ began his “War on Poverty” with the explosion of welfares. The only welfare before this was social security, then BOOM! Born on Medicaid, raised on WIC and foodstamps in section 8 housing with rent and utility subsidies, free headstart babysitting, obamaphones, maybe some social security disability… This was an evil marriage of democrats seeking power and blacks with one man one vote. In densely populated cities Libtards could bribe thousands easily with social services distributed in the cities, then on election day the off-duty union guy would troll a bus around the projects offering free bologna sandwiches and generic grape soda and surprise, the libtard candidate wins. This is EXACTLY how DeBlasio got elected. See the county by county electoral college map last election? Feral people living close to social services voted overwhelmingly Hillary. Some precincts in Philadelphia were 100%!

There are still plenty of white cities: Salt Lake City UT, Rapid City SD. They are quite nice. Libtard cities? Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, Newark, St Louis including Ferguson – all ghetto dumps of squalor, misery, and violence, all long governed by democrats.

End white flight? Security is condition prerequisite. Crush criminals. Do not permit the mayor to accept HUD section 8 money and close the projects. I’d like to see a requirement that welfare recipients be placed on birth control, like norplant, so they stop proliferating. Push the feral beast people out. Permit school vouchers so smart kids can learn with other smart kids, not get jammed into the pits of “diversity” where culture moves to the lowest common denominator. Don’t elect democrats. They are the enemy.

The quest for autonomy has reached such a macabre level in the Netherlands that last year the Royal Dutch Medical Association expanded the list of conditions legalizing euthanasia to include “loneliness.”

In the state of Washington, a debate is currently raging over whether to expand the list of conditions legalizing euthanasia to include those who are not terminally ill, as well as those who are mentally disabled.

By contrast, this week in Tennessee a dog was rescued from being euthanized (one news outlet said he was being spared “the Gas Chamber”) because the condition driving the dog’s death was his alleged homosexuality (the owner was ticked when he saw his Fido hunch another male dog). For reasons that appear entirely reasonable, the gal who rescued the dog named him Elton [click here to read the story].

The place where Elton was dropped, Euthanasia Jackson TN, encourages dog adoption, but it also promotes dog euthanasia. Not, however, in Elton’s case: the shelter has no stomach for putting dogs down on the basis of sexual orientation. It must be said, though, that the shelter is not exactly inclusive in its policies. To wit: Had poor Elton not been identified as a homosexual, his heterosexuality would not have been enough to save his hide.

The moral of the story is: Being gay is not only a bonus for humans these days, it is a definite plus for dogs as well. As for straights, the lonely and the disabled, that’s another story altogether.

“This idea of two men getting married is the most bizarre idea in human history,” Donohue told host John Fugelsang, adding that the purpose of marriage is a “duty” to procreate.

“The whole purpose of marriage is to have a family,” he said. “It’s not about making people happy. It’s not about love.”

Fugelsang repeatedly pressed Donohue to explain where Jesus preaches anything about “treating our gay friends like second-class citizens.” The host also pointed out that the Catholic leader is a hypocrite for demanding we follow a Leviticus passage that prohibits “lying with another man,” yet he doesn’t refrain from eating pork or from wearing shirts with mixed fibers.

“I think there’s a little bit of difference between what kind of shirt I buy and two guys having anal sex,” Donohue dismissed.

On February 5, Britain’s House of Commons voted in favor of legalizing gay marriage. The vote is extremely alarming. It could signal the beginning of the end for Western civilization as we know it.

The idea of same-sex marriage is troubling even to some homosexuals, let alone those who hold a biblical conviction that marriage is intended by the Creator to be between a man and a woman.

The vote, which was 400-175, represented a major crack in the Conservative Party. More than half of its 303 members voted against or abstained from the measure. Prime Minister David Cameron may go down in history as the man who hammered the last nail in the Conservative Party coffin.

…

The hope now lies within the House of Lords. But that’s a fragile hope. Even if they kill off this troubling legislation, it will only die for a season. The homosexual lobby will bring it up again and again and again. They are tenacious and even vicious. Voters against the legislation have received abuse and even death threats. David Burrowes, a ministerial aide, has been called a “Nazi.”

And this I can predict with certainty: the next group in England to seek similar legislation for their cause will be the polygamists. Muslims in England have been waiting for this legislation to pass before trying to get their legal right to marry four wives.

It is hardly a secret in England that many Muslims claim welfare benefits for multiple wives while the British government turns a blind eye to the hemorrhaging of taxpayer money.

Every time Western civilization seems to reach the bottom, one discovers a new low even farther down the pit. If Western populations don’t wake up, before long they will find themselves all the way in the Lake of Fire with the devil laughing his head off.

Scot, as I’ve noted in my published work, an appeal to an alleged slavery analogy is simply a bad case of analogical reasoning. Such an appeal even contradicts the use of an exploitation and orientation argument that you adopt. If the Bible does not intend to indict committed homosexual unions entered into by homosexually oriented persons (as you erroneously believe), why make an argument from analogy that is grounded on the need to depart from Scripture’s stance?

As it is, the alleged slavery analogy actually has little in the way of substantive correspondence with the Bible’s view of homosexual practice. The Bible shows no vested interest in preserving slavery. In a society without a social welfare net slavery is sometimes the only alternative to starvation; otherwise it serves as a penal institution in place of standing prisons or as a means of processing prisoners of war. At a number of points Scripture exhibits a critical edge toward that institution: mandatory release dates, right of kinship redemption at any time, injunctions not to treat Israelites as slaves, protection of runaway slaves, the exodus from Egyptian as a symbol of Israel’s release from slavery, Paul’s letter to Philemon promoting the release of Onesimus, and so on. Relative to the surrounding cultures of the ancient Near East and of Greece and Rome, the biblical witness on slavery moves in the direction of curtailing that institution. Finally, there is no creation mandate for slavery. Slavery is not imaged as part of the pre-Fall structures of the world.

Scot, compare this certainly non-enthusiastic and often critical attitude toward the institution of slavery in Scripture with the Bible’s strong witness in favor of a male-female prerequisite: There is a strong creation mandate for such a prerequisite; the pages of Scripture show strong revulsion for homosexual practice and absolutely no accommodation; and ancient Israel, early Judaism, and early Christianity had the most rigorous opposition to homosexual practice of any known culture in the ancient Near East and Greco-Roman Mediterranean basin. Jesus in Mark 10 (parallel in Matt 19) treated a male-female prerequisite for marriage (and thus all sexual relations) as foundational for sexual ethics, including the limitation of sexual unions to two persons.

The only connection that homosexualist interpreters can make between the Bible’s critical tolerance of slavery and its deliberate abhorrence of all homosexual practice is that we have changed on the institution of slavery; therefore, they argue, we should change our position on homosexual practice. Yet that argument can be used arbitrarily for any and every belief and practice promoted in Scripture, for it takes no account of whether substantive points of correspondence exist apart from the desire of the interpreter to deviate from Scripture.

The better analogy is between slavery and support for homosexual practice, for those who argue for the latter on the basis of a “born that way” philosophy are promoting slavery to the desires of the flesh. And still better analogies are the Bible’s stance on incest and the New Testament opposition to polygamy since the reasons why these behaviors are proscribed are related to, or derived from, a male-female prerequisite for sexual relations. As you must know, when one uses remote analogues (here, slavery) and ignores more proximate analogues (incest and polyamory) one shows poor analogical reasoning.

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), National Public Radio (NPR), and the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), are all subsidized by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). The Trump administration is right to propose a budget that completely guts these entities of federal funding. That is why I am asking members of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees to honor the president’s request.

Justice demands that these agencies should be eliminated: Taxpayers should not be forced to pay for assaults on their religion. Christians constitute roughly 75 percent of the population; Catholics are approximately 25 percent of the total. In the name of “art,” these Americans are expected to pay for irreverent exhibits, but depictions that are reverential—such as a nativity scene outside City Hall—are denied a dime. It’s time we stopped giving the arts a privileged position and cut their funding. The same is true for publicly funded radio and TV programming that has a history of insulting the majority of Americans.

The CPB was founded in the 1960s, and it has been plagued with problems ever since. In the late 1980s, the NEA funded Andre Serrano’s “Piss Christ” and Robert Mapplethorpe’s “The Perfect Moment.” Serrano took a crucifix and dropped it into a jar of his own urine, branding it art. The NEA gave a Philadelphia museum $30,000 to display graphic homosexual S&M photos taken by Mapplethorpe.

In 1998, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that there is no constitutional prohibition against Congress setting decency standards for the NEA. But attempts by the NEA to enforce grant recipients to sign an anti-obscenity pledge went nowhere. This is why Congress must act.

To show how perverse things have become, President Barack Obama not only approved generous grants to the NEA, he actually included $50 million for the arts as part of his “federal stimulus package.” One of the first beneficiaries was a San Francisco outfit, CounterPULSE. It received $25,000 to pay for employees’ salaries. What did the public get from it? The group hosted “a long-running pansexual performance series” called “Perverts Put Out”; it asked the audience to “Join your fellow pervs for some explicit twisted fun.”

There is VERY VERY VERY little difference between a black feminist and a white supremacist in terms of the overall destructive impact that these ideologies and methodologies have had on black families and black progress as a whole.

Black Feminism itself amounts to nothing more than mammy wenchery, clitocratic ejaculation, and minstrel masterbation from the bottom rungs of section 8, to the top echelons of the black bourgeoisie.

It was Feminist Cointelpro FBI informants like Angela Davis and Elaine Brown that helped the United States Government destroy the Black Panther Party…. But I digress…..

Ultimately yes, black women have an IMMENSE amount of privilege over black men in white society(Look at the murder rates, the conviction rates, the arrest rates, the employment rates etc.) Black Women with their mammy privilege have essentially become an integral part of the oppressor class and have played a very treacherous role in the destruction of black families over the past 50 years.

The Black Man is indeed the lowest of the low and young black boys are the most beaten raped abused drugged demonized and terrorized human beings on the face of the earth.

So yes, I will make absolutely no apologies for my vigorous advocacy of the sovereignty of black men and I will never hold back in my assault against the terroristic parasitic entity known as “Black Feminism”, because it is a primary, secondary, and tertiary enemy of Black Progress. In terms of Black Progress, if the sovereignty leadership and dominance of Black Men does not come first second and third, nothing will be produced for the Black Family.

There will not even be a Black Family, without the perpetual advocacy and construction of a strong militant and sophisticated institution of Black Manhood.

By way of a voice vote, the House Education Policy Committee passed a bill that would require teachers to recite Christian prayers in public schools every day, even though the majority of members did not vote for it.

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Steve Hurst, R-Munford, would require teachers to spend no more than 15 minutes in the first class of each day to read, verbatim, opening prayers said before a meeting of the U.S. House of Representatives or the U.S. Senate.

Rep. Mary Sue McClurkin, R-Indian Springs, chairwoman of the committee, said she heard more votes in favor of the bill.

“It’s what I heard as chairman,” she said.

Reps. Terri Collins, R-Decatur, Elaine Beech, D-Chatom, and Phil Williams, R-Huntsville, all voted against the bill. Reps. Marcel Black, D-Tuscumbia, Mac Buttram, R-Cullman, and Kerry Rich, R-Albertville, did not vote at all.

The only two to vote in favor of the bill were McClurkin and Rep. Lesley Vance, R-Phenix City.

House Clerk Jeff Woodard said the chairman of each committee has the discretion to decide the outcome of a voice vote. Committee members can request roll call votes if there’s a dispute, but none of the Education Policy committee members did.

Woodard said the majority of bills coming out of committees are passed by voice vote.

The committee also passed a religious expression bill, sponsored by Rep. Mack Butler, R-Rainbow City, that would allow students to initiate prayer in school and express their religious views in their schoolwork. The bill would also require schools to adopt a policy to reinforce those rights.

Butler, who served on a school board for 10 years, said the purpose of the bill is to communicate to school administrators and teachers what’s legal. He said he knows teachers who are scared to death because they don’t know where to draw the line.

“Every bit of this bill is already legal,” Butler said. “It’s just that no one knows it’s legal.”

Beech said she didn’t understand why a bill legalizing actions that are already legal under the U.S. Constitution was needed.

State education officials at the public hearings on the bill last week said the bill isn’t needed because students already have those rights and that developing individual policies might open schools to lawsuits if they don’t get the wording correct.

Susan Watson, executive director of the Alabama Civil Liberties Union Alabama, said at last week’s public hearing that the Congressional prayer bill is unconstitutional and will put school boards at risk of lawsuits.

The appalling New Mexico ruling will stand. A ruling where one justice actually stated that Christian business owners are “now compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives." The ruling by this court went on to state that such coercion is "the price of citizenship."

The “price of citizenship”?? Have we been transported to North Korea? Since when do we have to check our First Amendment freedoms at the door in order to live and work as a citizen of the United States? What happened to the land of the free where we have the free exercise of religion?

As U.S. Representative Randy Forbes (R-Va.) stated in response to this court’s ruling: “The ability to speak freely and live according to our beliefs is the prize, not the price, of citizenship. And we all have a stake in protecting it.”

Elaine Huguenin’s attorney, Jordan Lorence from Alliance Defending Freedom, told writer Todd Starnes:

“It is disconcerting because the (state) decision was so harsh that this small company can now be forced by state anti-discrimination laws to create messages that they don’t agree with. This new authoritarianism – forcing people to bow the knee to a new orthodoxy or they be punished – is very chilling.”

“When people say things like gay rights trump religious rights, what they are saying is the government can force people to believe a certain way – and that is something that in a free society should not be tolerated.”

Lorence also stated: "Should the government force a videographer who is an animal rights activist to create a video promoting hunting and taxidermy? Of course not, and neither should the government force this photographer to promote a message that violates her conscience."

Yet that is exactly what the government is doing (with a complicit stamp of approval from the U.S. Supreme Court) – forcing Christians to closet their faith and bow before our nation’s golden idol giving glory, laud, and honor to all things homosexual.

When Eich’s support for natural (biblical) marriage was discovered, gay rights groups called for his head on a platter and the Herodian Mozilla didn’t hesitate to comply – even though the company’s chairwoman, Mitchell Baker, acknowledged: “I never saw any kind of behavior or attitude from him that was not in line with Mozilla’s values of inclusiveness.”

This forced resignation of a CEO simply because of his personally-held opinions and beliefs regarding the institution of marriage is chilling. Albert Mohler gives this warning:

This is one of the most ominous developments in our culture in recent years because what it demonstrates is the fact that those who are now pressing the agenda for the legalization of same-sex marriage and the normalization of homosexual behavior and relationships are now going to accept absolutely no dissent. They’re going to purge public ranks wherever they have influence of anyone who had the temerity or the conviction, even years ago, to take even a minor step against their agenda. … Brendan Eich is now the first and most public casualty in this kind of effort to eradicate all dissent. He will not be the last. … it is now quite possible in a short amount of time to hound someone out of office and out of influence for having held such a position or having taken such an action even many years ago. In that sense, his resignation yesterday will become one of those landmark days in terms of the moral revolution. We’ll remember this day for many years to come.

So what are we as Christians to do in the face of such attacks against not only our beliefs, but also our rights to express them?

How do we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land which grows stranger by the day? Do we merely sit and weep and hang up our lyres on the willows? Or do we pick up our bugles and trumpet God’s truth in a world that doesn’t want to hear it? I vote for the later and with the Lord’s help, that is what I pledge to do.

I am glad that Allan Wall has decided to write about the new Miss America. I wanted to see the supposed racism Nina Davuluri has experienced would be tackled by VDARE.com.

Anybody with half a brain can see that she won thanks to the multicultural icon she represents. Liberals will do anything to push the multicultural and diversity agenda, to set aside the true founders of American civilization, the regular Americans who, by the way, started the Miss America contest and even the Ms. World and Ms. Universe contests.

Miss Kansas (National Guard Sergeant Theresa Vail )even though she did represent a true Miss America, did spoil her chances by showing off her tattoos. She could have worn a full swimsuit to hide her tattoos, instead of a bikini. So I do agree with commentson how her tattoos ruined her chances.

However, those tattoo comments about her were used to stereotype all Americans as rednecks—and no one is making headlines about someone who wrote in a comment box “I hope this lowlife redneck does not win,” the way they did at the first sign of an anti-Nina tweet.

Homosexuality is partly caused by a self-reinforcing mental process, especially considering the brain plasticity during teenage, which, associated with autosuggestion, becomes an irreversibly imprinted into early adulthood.
You’ve heard of people getting trapped into religious sects and sort of addicted to it, right? They never get out by themselves. Same thing here.

So, if you are at the beginning of your sexuality and you get trapped in a homosexual pattern, you may never get out of it. And yes, by the time you reach legal age, you will feel genuinely attracted to boys. But this attraction will be the result of an induced or imposed behavior, not a genetic determination of any sort.
In the past, a boy may have feel confused with his hormones and vaguely attracted to boys for a short time, but that was it. No Induced process was there to imprint his brain because of the barriers put in place by the Society, plus Religion forbade it, so, end of story. Now, here is an incredible concept: the Society was actually protecting its Citizen, can you believe it?

That’s one thing. The other thing is the chemical environment. It contains pollutants and hormones analogues, that decrease men’s hormonal load, which translates into hetero men with lower sperm count and in boys into small breast and small penises. A note here: fat is great to store all these pollutants, in addition to racial differences in sensitivity and fat storage. See how everything is linked?
Then, obviously, many more boys will start at the edges of hormonal un-differentiation and will become easy preys to the psychological mechanisms mentioned above.

Don’t say it’s not true, because even in girls you have the mirror mechanism: the constant decrease in the age in the fist menarche of girls. In the 18th century, It was relatively convenient for a girl to remain chaste until her 17eens, when she barely finished her puberty at 16, as opposed to now when many white girls start puberty in their 10th or 11th and are done by 12, and we ask them ‘not to think about it’ for the next 6-7 years, with raging hormones inside.
I asked a doctor why is that (for the girls) he said he doesn’t know, and nobody knows for sure. A combination of many chemicals, food, and behavior is likely.

So this is it. Beside the rare cases of true hormonal imbalance genetically determined and very rare, as for most genetic diseases, most cases of homosexuality are ‘induced’ by environment and behavior.
For the environment: pesticides/growth hormones are used to increase food production as well as many other chemicals from plastics, and female hormones are also directly released in the environment.
For the Behavior: well, the body is merchandised and you own your body right? so there is a market aperture here.
To resume it all: it’s MONEY.

So if you want, you can replace my long text with that small emoticon of a slightly hunchback man with a crook nose and who is rubbing his hands because of all the money he knows he’s gonna make.

The reason that more Transhumanists are not Reactionaries, in my view, is that they haven’t done their reading on molecular manufacturing, or they mistakenly think that Friendly AI or a Kurzweilian Singularity will come around in time to save the day. The writings describing the full picture of molecular manufacturing are rather long and technical, and most people — even Harvard graduates with beefy IQs — simply don’t have the time or inclination to read them. The standards of Transhumanism have fallen in the last decade as well. In the late 90s and the early 00s, when the primary transhumanist venues were the Extropians and SL4 mailing lists, the technical understanding of the average transhumanist was excellent. Today, it is quite poor. There’s an emergent brilliance produced when you put Spike Jones, Robin Hanson, Anders Sandberg, Chris Phoenix, Eliezer Yudkowsky, and Robert Bradbury on the same mailing list, which simply has no modern-day analogue. This environment was the forge that crafted the most capable Transhumanist leaders of today. Second-generation students of transhumanism are simply not the same.

When people understand the true extent of the feasibility and power of molecular manufacturing, a grim attitude tends to set in due to all the palpable risks. I’m pleased that the 3D-printed gun exists, because this is the first visceral, public example of the phenomenon I’ve been writing about and fearing since 2001. Unrestrained technological power in the hands of the masses. It’s nearly impossible to grasp the full picture until you understand the likely production capabilities and relative technological feasibility of molecular manufacturing. Many of the original visionaries are beginning to get quite old, and are falling silent without passing on their knowledge in detail to many students, so I fear that the baton is not being handed off properly, and will be dropped along the way. Those who have the responsibility to pass off this knowledge know who they are.

My concern are individuals and small groups that asymmetrically empower themselves through emerging technologies and don’t have the public good in mind. Given the current predominant political sympathies, which are ultra-egalitarian, there would be few restrictions on the routes to this power. Adopting Traditional principles, however, which are strictly hierarchical, would restrict the power in the hands of a few, providing fewer points of failure. Would you rather take the risk of a thousand elite leaders exploiting powerful manufacturing technologies to do damage, or the guarantee that if the technologies are available to a billion, many of them will certainly do damage?

The benefit of conferring responsibility on a comparatively small set of elite individuals is that these individuals can be educated for their responsibilities far in advance, groomed and cultivated for their important roles. They can be instilled with good morals, broad understanding, supportive familial and organizational structures, and mutual expectations worthy of their station. Common people tend to think only for themselves, and have trouble seeing personal responsibility for affairs of the state. Handing someone a nanofactory automatically gives them the power to influence affairs on a worldwide scale. Is this a power we really want being handed to those educated by reality television?

Students of political correctness will cringe at the thought of conferring superlative powers on an elite, but the long-term survival of the human species is more important than historically contingent factors that are based on nothing more than the preoccupations of an unexpectedly influential cadre of Berkeley students in the 1960s. Prior to the 1960s, high-level political thought was still based heavily on Traditional principles of sacred responsibility among a few men of power. The notion that true power and control should be shattered into 300 million little pieces and distributed evenly among the populace is a very recent idea, one we would do well without. If UC Berkeley never existed, progressivism may have never even manifested in its current form and risen to become the dominant ideology of the nation’s elite.
