[On "Jewish propaganda" relating to the figure of 6 million deaths during the Holocaust]

This time, we're looking at the figure being slipped into the most popular filmic franchise of all time: Star Wars. This was the brainchild of George Lucas and the original trilogy was co-written by Jew Lawrence Kasdan. No surprise then that C3PO is 'fluent in over six million forms of communication,' as he likes to mention.

Andrew Levinson #fundie returnofkings.com

Christians in general, and Catholics in particular, are portrayed as puritanical and anti-sex. This raises a question: if Catholics hate sex so much, then why did they historically tend to have so many children? As recently as 100 years ago, child rearing was considered the proper object of marriage and sex. The blue pill script – go to college, get a good salaried job, marry young and for life, have two or three kids – retains its staying power because it used to be sound advice. The manosphere exists in part because it is sound advice no longer.

Pope Paul VI, who reigned from 1963 to 1978, was in many ways a weak and vacillating man. His predecessor, Pope John XXIII, described then Cardinal Giovanni Battista Montini as, “our Hamlet,” always indecisive to the last. In an uncharacteristically bold move, he published the encyclical letter Humanae Vitae in 1968 that reaffirmed the Catholic Church’s opposition to all forms of artificial contraception.

At this point, many RoK readers may be thinking, “I’m sure this is terribly interesting to you Levinson, but I’m not a Catholic and the pill and the condom have been great for my sex life. Why should I care about this?” You should care because Paul VI called it: the easy availability of contraceptives paved the way for no-fault divorce, unleashed hypergamy, and sodomite “marriage.”

Marriage Then

Most of us take atomistic individualism for granted, in contrast to the ancient understanding of man as the political animal. “Who are you to say what two consenting adults can and cannot do in private?” is taken to be an unanswerable rejoinder to traditional understandings of sex and marriage. Sex seldom remains a purely private affair, especially in the era of social media. Among other things, sex can lead to love, marriage, hate, murder, children, disease, happy homes, broken homes, social cohesion and social disintegration.

As Pope Paul described it:

"Married love is also faithful and exclusive of all other, and this until death. This is how husband and wife understood it on the day on which, fully aware of what they were doing, they freely vowed themselves to one another in marriage. Though this fidelity of husband and wife sometimes presents difficulties, no one has the right to assert that it is impossible; it is, on the contrary, always honorable and meritorious. The example of countless married couples proves not only that fidelity is in accord with the nature of marriage, but also that it is the source of profound and enduring happiness."

In other words, marriage was once considered a more public institution than it is today, not through legislation but through social convention. Young men were incentivized to make themselves good husband material if they wanted sex and children. Young women were encouraged to remain chaste and marry young. Divorce was unthinkable for our great-grandparents. Then, as now, women were much more ruthless about slut shaming than men.

Above all, marriage was ordered toward children:

"Finally, this love is fecund. It is not confined wholly to the loving interchange of husband and wife; it also contrives to go beyond this to bring new life into being. “Marriage and conjugal love are by their nature ordained toward the procreation and education of children. Children are really the supreme gift of marriage and contribute in the highest degree to their parents’ welfare."

Marriage Now

In paragraph 17, Pope Paul predicts the consequences of the contraceptive mentality:

"Responsible men can become more deeply convinced of the truth of the doctrine laid down by the Church on this issue if they reflect on the consequences of methods and plans for artificial birth control. Let them first consider how easily this course of action could open wide the way for marital infidelity and a general lowering of moral standards. Not much experience is needed to be fully aware of human weakness and to understand that human beings—and especially the young, who are so exposed to temptation—need incentives to keep the moral law [emphasis mine – AL], and it is an evil thing to make it easy for them to break that law. Another effect that gives cause for alarm is that a man who grows accustomed to the use of contraceptive methods may forget the reverence due to a woman, and, disregarding her physical and emotional equilibrium, reduce her to being a mere instrument for the satisfaction of his own desires, no longer considering her as his partner whom he should surround with care and affection."

Players and sluts ye shall always have with you, but the world now incentivizes us to be this way. Men must constantly perform or else their unhaaaappy wives will blow up the marriage for cash and prizes. That is, if men choose to marry at all. Fewer do, and in all honesty, I can hardly blame them. Why should they? If they want sex, they can find plenty of willing ladies provided they have even a modicum of game, and they won’t have to risk losing their homes, their jobs, their children, and their sanity in the divorce grinder.

Women too have grown to devalue men. Would the carousel exist to the extent that it does if it weren’t for the pill? If they can have consequence-free sex, then they will pursue the apex alphas and ditch the frustrated betas who were the good husbands and providers of yesteryear. Women are more exquisitely sensitive to social pressure than men, and the social cues that existed in our great-grandparents day aren’t there anymore.

The key here is that artificial contraception radically separated marriage and sex from child rearing. Marriage used to be a recognized public institution that carried with it certain legal and social obligations to which the couple was expected to conform. If children are removed from the occasion, then marriage becomes all about romantic feelings.

Fuzzy Feels Are Optional

If marriage is nothing but a public declaration of romantic feelings, then two consequences follow: if the feelings go away, that’s a legitimate reason to end the marriage; and if sodomites have romantic feelings for each other, then what reason do we have to exclude them from marriage?

Traditionally, Christianity has taught that if you burn with lust, you should marry. The specific woman you married was a question of prudence like choosing a career or a new house. Nowhere did the Church say that God had created “the one” or your soulmate. Unfortunately, this thinking has infiltrated all Christian churches today with disastrous consequences.

Jesus Christ famously prohibited divorce in the Gospels but many Christian churches have creative methods for getting around that. In theory, the Catholic Church has stood strong alone among all Christians. Strictly speaking, she does not recognize divorce but she makes “declarations of nullity,” which means a couple never formed a sacramental marriage at the time of their wedding vows. The American Catholic Church in particular has been handing out annulments like candy for fifty years, so it’s understandable why outsiders think of them as Catholic divorces.

The Basis Of Civilization

The building block of civilized society is not the individual but the family. The great evil of our time is that our progressive overlords actively undermine the family at every turn. My tradcon friends vacillate between believing game is either a placebo or a set of irresistible Jedi mind tricks cads use to deflower innocent virgins. The media wonders why young men refuse to grow up, man up, and marry those sluts. I say the men of today are responding rationally to the incentives of a world gone mad.

Be honest gentlemen: if Marriage 1.0 were still the rule instead of the exception, how many of you would happily marry? The contraceptive regime radically disrupted the natural formation of families. Sex became an end in itself. From that conviction came the scourge of pornography. The logical conclusion is the development of sex bots. And an elderly, celibate Italian bishop saw it all coming more clearly than all of the experts.

Maybe that's why I find the idea of evolution so laughable. I have a degree in mechanical engineering, and as a mechanical engineer, I can tell you that the human musculo-skeletal system is far more complex than the most complicated machine. The level of complexity is staggering. At the very least, the human body is many orders of magnitude greater in complexity than the finest watch or robot. But we really don't even know how many orders of magnitude greater in complexity, because we don't know what we don't yet know.

Think of the human body as an engineering problem. Your job is to design a machine to the following specifications. This machine must:

-Begin at the size of a speck and self-organize to a final weight of 180lb.
-It will be fueled by animal meat, vegetation, air and sunshine.
-It must be able to self-heal.
-It must be able to travel over land, climb up and over objects, and through water.
-It must remain functioning for 30 years.
-It must generate copies of itself with the same capabilities.
-The machine must be able to measure sound, pressure, light, flavor, and odor.
-It must be easily able to differentiate objects.

You get the idea. Anyway, present that list to any engineer or any group of engineers, and they'll laugh their butts off.

Life has taught me some things about death. When I lost my grandmother some years ago, I found that I was unable to accept it. So, I pondered the situation and came to a conclusion: it is ok not to accept death in general or the death of someone close to you; because God doesn’t accept death either. Death is not OK with God; he hates it, and according to the Bible, it is the “last enemy that will be defeated.” When someone close to you dies, a piece of you goes with them; you will now have to find your new normal. You are now less than you were; you must re-calibrate, that’s just the way it is. Death is always a metaphysical subtraction from life.

Death is not a part of life; that’s a bunch of baloney.

There are not worse things in life than death; that’s a bunch of baloney also.

I have seen people in conditions that are so bad that you couldn’t even begin to imagine what it would be like; yet, they hang on to life anyway. Why? According to their testimonies, they are afraid to die. I know people who have a very limited life but want to make the best of what they have, and my career is all about helping them to do that. As long as they are in the fight, I am in it with them.

People hang on to life in hope that they will find some peace about death. They hope they will find definitive answers about death that will enable them to travel through that gate. In our culture that’s difficult because of propaganda spread by those who sell salvation. In geographies where people live from hand to mouth, you can always count on the following: popes, pastors, and self proclaimed apostles are living in splendor. Salvation is big business. What will a peasant pay to save their soul? Everything, including their last penny for one meal.

One of the biggest selling points of religion follows: the church is a sanctuary city from an angry God who wants to punish you in hell for every sin you ever committed. Our view of God and our perception of him is almost helplessly distorted. Christ is presented as a second God of grace that saves us from a God of wrath. This is behind the Christo-centric theology of the church which presents itself as the “under-shepherd” of Christ. The church sells the idea that individual reason and logic cannot understand reality; hence, what we read in our Bibles contradicts what we hear in church, and the result is total confusion about who God is.

Fear of death is compounded because of confusion about God. Fear is the church’s primary selling point. John Calvin and Martin Luther said so.

Hebrews Chapter 2:

Now when it says “all things,” it means nothing is left out. But we have not yet seen all things put under their authority [that is, angels]. 9What we do see is Jesus, who for a little while was given a position “a little lower than the angels”; and because he suffered death for us [“pas” means “all” viz, he suffered death for all], he is now “crowned with glory and honor.” Yes, by God’s grace [love], Jesus tasted death for everyone. 10God, for whom and through whom everything was made, chose to bring many children into glory. And it was only right that he should make Jesus, through his suffering, a perfect leader, fit to bring them into their salvation.

11So now Jesus and the ones he makes holy have the same Father. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them his brothers and sisters. 12For he said to God,

“I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters.
I will praise you among your assembled people.”

13He also said,

“I will put my trust in him,”
that is, “I and the children God has given me.”

14Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had [past tense] the power of death. 15Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.

16We also know that the Son did not come to help angels; he came to help the descendants of Abraham. 17Therefore, it was necessary for him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then he could offer a sacrifice [ONE] that would take away [not cover, or temporarily take away] the sins of the people. 18Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.

NLT [My comments in brackets].

In the Bible; sin, fear, and death are synonymous. If one is still under sin, they are still in slavery to the fear of death. Note, in this passage, that the only thing that frees us from the slavery of fear is Christ’s death…period. Christ’s death makes it possible for us to be God’s literal children, and Christ’s brothers and sisters. We become literal family members of God. Christ went before us to free us from the fear of death.

Note what is missing here: Christ’s imputation of perfect law-keeping. If that is necessary, we are necessarily still under the slavery of fear and death. Perfect law-keeping, no matter who keeps it, is not what frees us from death’s slavery, only kinship does.

Without fear of death, religion has no product to sell, and there are other things that are very bad for business as well: the idea that God wants to save everyone; the idea that people are able to choose God to be free from the slavery of fear, the doctrine of the Rapture, and the idea that God hates death and gave his only Son to vanquish it from reality forever.

The stakes of life are highest in regard to the death issue, and reason’s logical conclusions regarding death and God are the only things that will assure us, and…

…that’s bad for business as well.

[Re. The Force Awakens]

First, my opinion of the film overall. The latest STAR WAR VII film is awful. I remember seeing Star Wars: A New Hope three times when I was ten years old. The first two films were really great, but George Lucas messed up Return Of The Jedi with animated character Jabba the Hutt's big tongue licking on Princess Leia scantily clad body. That was just low-class and stupid in my opinion. What is it with Hollywood and big tongues licking women, like in Jurassic Park II and numerous other movies? PERVERTS! The three STAR WARS prequels were better than I expected, mainly because of great acting by Samuel Jackson and a well-selected cast of actors.

Unfortunately, STAR WARS VII has the lousiest cast of actors. For the first time, political correctness became a major factor in the film's script. At the beginning of the movie, a Storm Trooper removes his white helmet, so you can clearly see a black man's face with big negro lips. I'm not racist, nor am I trying to be unkind, but it offends me when film writers intentionally shove someone else's skin color in my face. If you understand the sinister agenda behind the Devil's New World Order (NWO)—which is the Beast system of the coming Antichrist—then you understand that Satan is trying to break down all human barriers of language, race, ethnicity, culture, national borders, sexuality, parental authority, and Christianity.

The Devil is also intentionally confusing the sexes concerning gender, corrupting the Bible versions, confusing people with umpteen religions, morality and the value of life. People are so confused these days about everything. This is an agenda of the NWO, so that a confused people will become vulnerable and powerless in such a comatose state of mind. Televisions are nothing more than indoctrination devices used by the Devil, lobotomizing the masses from the truth.

It is obvious that the latest STAR WARS VII sequel is loaded with Pentagon propaganda to lure young women to join the military. The film pushes women in combat. The central female figure in the film is portrayed as capable of doing anything. She can operate and fly any vehicle, do anything better than a man, defeat men in combat, fight anything, et cetera. SHE-MAN!!! The film is total agenda-driven brainwashing!!! It's a false reality, attempting to seduce people into a false second reality.

The Sixteen Commandments Of Poon

I. Never say ‘I Love You’ first

Women want to feel like they have to overcome obstacles to win a man’s heart. They crave the challenge of capturing the interest of a man who has other women competing for his attention, and eventually prevailing over his grudging reluctance to award his committed exclusivity. The man who gives his emotional world away too easily robs women of the satisfaction of earning his love. Though you may be in love with her, don’t say it before she has said it. Show compassionate restraint for her need to struggle toward yin fulfillment. Inspire her to take the leap for you, and she’ll return the favor a thousandfold.

II. Make her jealous

Flirt with other women in front of her. Do not dissuade other women from flirting with you. Women will never admit this but jealousy excites them. The thought of you turning on another woman will arouse her sexually. No girl wants a man that no other woman wants. The partner who harnesses the gale storm of jealousy controls the direction of the relationship.

III. You shall make your mission, not your woman, your priority

Forget all those romantic cliches of the leading man proclaiming his undying love for the woman who completes him. Despite whatever protestations to the contrary, women do not want to be “The One” or the center of a man’s existence. They in fact want to subordinate themselves to a worthy man’s life purpose, to help him achieve that purpose with their feminine support, and to follow the path he lays out. You must respect a woman’s integrity and not lie to her that she is “your everything”. She is not your everything, and if she is, she will soon not be anymore.

IV. Don’t play by her rules

If you allow a woman to make the rules she will resent you with a seething contempt even a rapist cannot inspire. The strongest woman and the most strident feminist wants to be led by, and to submit to, a more powerful man. Polarity is the core of a healthy loving relationship. She does not want the prerogative to walk all over you with her capricious demands and mercurial moods. Her emotions are a hurricane, her soul a saboteur. Think of yourself as a bulwark against her tempest. When she grasps for a pillar to steady herself against the whipping winds or yearns for an authority figure to foil her worst instincts, it is you who has to be there… strong, solid, unshakeable and immovable.

V. Adhere to the golden ratio

Give your woman 2/3 of everything she gives you. For every three calls or texts, give her two back. Three declarations of love earn two in return. Three gifts; two nights out. Give her two displays of affection and stop until she has answered with three more. When she speaks, you reply with fewer words. When she emotes, you emote less. The idea behind the golden ratio is twofold — it establishes your greater value by making her chase you, and it demonstrates that you have the self-restraint to avoid getting swept up in her personal dramas. Refraining from reciprocating everything she does for you in equal measure instills in her the proper attitude of belief in your higher status. In her deepest loins it is what she truly wants.

VI. Keep her guessing

True to their inscrutable natures, women ask questions they don’t really want direct answers to. Woe be the man who plays it straight — his fate is the suffering of the beta. Evade, tease, obfuscate. She thrives when she has to imagine what you’re thinking about her, and withers when she knows exactly how you feel. A woman may want financial and family security, but she does not want passion security. In the same manner, when she has displeased you, punish swiftly, but when she has done you right, reward slowly. Reward her good behavior intermittently and unpredictably and she will never tire of working hard to please you.

VII. Always keep two in the kitty

Never allow yourself to be a “kept man”. A man with options is a man without need. It builds confidence and encourages boldness with women if there is another woman, a safety net, to catch you in case you slip and risk a breakup, divorce, or a lost prospect, leading to loneliness and a grinding dry spell. A woman knows once she has slept with a man she has abdicated a measure of her power; when she has fallen in love with him she has surrendered nearly all of it. But love is ephemeral and with time she may rediscover her power and threaten to leave you. It is her final trump card. Withdrawing all her love and all her body in an instant will rend your soul if you are faced with contemplating the empty abyss alone. Knowing there is another you can turn to for affection will fortify your will and satisfy your manhood.

VIII. Say you’re sorry only when absolutely necessary

Do not say you’re sorry for every wrong thing you do. It is a posture of submission that no man should reflexively adopt, no matter how alpha he is. Apologizing increases the demand for more apologies. She will come to expect your contrition, like a cat expects its meal at a set time each day. And then your value will lower in her eyes. Instead, if you have done something wrong, you should acknowledge your guilt in a glancing way without resorting to the actual words “I’m sorry.” Pull the Bill Clinton maneuver and say “Mistakes were made” or tell her you “feel bad” about what you did. You are granted two freebie “I’m sorry”s for the life of your relationship; use them wisely.

IX. Connect with her emotions

Set yourself apart from other men and connect with a woman’s emotional landscape. Her mind is an alien world that requires deft navigation to reach your rendevous. Frolic in the surf of emotions rather than the arid desert of logic. Be playful. Employ all your senses. Describe in lush detail scenarios to set her heart afire. Give your feelings freedom to roam. ROAM. Yes, that is a good word. You’re not on a linear path with her. You are ROAMING all over, taking her on an adventure. In this world, there is no need to finish thoughts or draw conclusions. There is only need to EXPERIENCE. You’re grabbing her hand and running with her down an infinite, labyrinthine alleyway with no end, laughing and letting your fingers glide on the cobblestone walls along the way.

X. Ignore her beauty

The man who trains his mind to subdue the reward centers of his brain when reflecting upon a beautiful female face will magically transform his interactions with women. His apprehension and self-consciousness will melt away, paving the path for more honest and self-possessed interactions with the objects of his desire. This is one reason why the greatest lotharios drown in more love than they can handle — through positive experiences with so many beautiful women they lose their awe of beauty and, in turn, their powerlessness under its spell. It will help you acquire the right frame of mind to stop using the words hot, cute, gorgeous, or beautiful to describe girls who turn you on. Instead, say to yourself “she’s interesting” or “she might be worth getting to know”. Never compliment a girl on her looks, especially not a girl you aren’t fucking. Turn off that part of your brain that wants to put them on pedestals. Further advanced training to reach this state of unawed Zen transcendence is to sleep with many MANY attractive women (try to avoid sleeping with a lot of ugly women if you don’t want to regress). Soon, a Jedi lover you will be.

XI. Be irrationally self-confident

No matter what your station in life, stride through the world without apology or excuse. It does not matter if objectively you are not the best man a woman can get; what matters is that you think and act like you are. Women have a dog’s instinct for uncovering weakness in men; don’t make it easy for them. Self-confidence, warranted or not, triggers submissive emotional responses in women. Irrational self-confidence will get you more pussy than rational defeatism.

XII. Maximize your strengths, minimize your weaknesses

In the betterment of ourselves as men we attract women into our orbit. To accomplish this gravitational pull as painlessly and efficiently as possible, you must identify your natural talents and shortcomings and parcel your efforts accordingly. If you are a gifted jokester, don’t waste time and energy trying to raise your status in philosophical debate. If you write well but dance poorly, don’t kill yourself trying to expand your manly influence on the dancefloor. Your goal should be to attract women effortlessly, so play to your strengths no matter what they are; there is a groupie for every male endeavor. Except World of Warcraft.

XIII. Err on the side of too much boldness, rather than too little

Touching a woman inappropriately on the first date will get you further with her than not touching her at all. Don’t let a woman’s faux indignation at your boldness sway you; they secretly love it when a man aggressively pursues what he wants and makes his sexual intentions known. You don’t have to be an asshole, but if you have no choice, being an inconsiderate asshole beats being a polite beta, every time.

XIV. Fuck her good

Fuck her like it’s your last fuck. And hers. Fuck her so good, so hard, so wantonly, so profligately that she is left a quivering, sparking mass of shaking flesh and sex fluids. Drain her of everything, then drain her some more. Kiss her all over, make love to her all night, and hold her close in the morning. Own her body, own her gratitude, own her love. If you don’t know how, learn to give her squirting orgasms.

XV. Maintain your state control

You are an oak tree. You will not be manipulated by crying, yelling, lying, head games, sexual withdrawal, jealousy ploys, pity plays, shit tests, hot/cold/hot/cold, disappearing acts, or guilt trips. She will rain and thunder all around you and you will shelter her until her storm passes. She will not drag you into her chaos or uproot you. When you have mastery over yourself, you will have mastery over her.

XVI. Never be afraid to lose her

You must not fear. Fear is the love-killer. Fear is the ego-triumph that brings abject loneliness. You will face your fear. You will permit it to pass over and through you. And when your ego-fear is gone you will turn and face your lover, and only your heart will remain. You will walk away from her when she has violated your integrity, and you will let her walk when her heart is closed to you. She who can destroy you, controls you. Don’t give her that power over yourself. Love yourself before you love her.

***

The closer you follow the letter of these commandments, the easier you will find and keep real, true unconditional love and happiness in your life.

Best,

Your Lord and King

“It has been encouraging how well the media and the bulk of the fans have embraced [the ending],” Konietzko wrote. “We did it for all our queer friends, family, and colleagues.” Added DeMartino, “I’ve already read some heartwarming and incredible posts about how this moment means so much for the LGBT community.”

So it would appear all fans have no choice but to consider as canon the relationship most fans call “Korrasami.” That also applies to Christian fans of Korra who should want to respect its creators’ intentions. This is good and fair hermeneutics, i.e., respecting a story-maker’s intentions the same way we should respect the intentions of the Bible’s Author. However, it is not homophobic — as Konietzko seems to imply — to discuss how the Korrasami finale makes no sense in the context of the Avatar story-world, how it hijacks Korra’s story in service of social causes to the detriment of its own creative storytelling, or how these attempts make it difficult to simply enjoy Korra as art.
Korrasami Is a Leaky Ship

Elsewhere I’ve referred to “The Harkness Law” or “The Gobber Principle”; that is, most stories’ emotional cores are based on “traditional” relationships, with other relationships relegated to side references, comic relief, or obvious political/social agenda add-ons. However, Korra didn’t contain even the slightest hint that its story-world included “non-traditional” relationships — even as comic relief or as side references.

All Avatar stories have, as their emotional core, relationships between friends, siblings, parents and children, grandparents and grandchildren, boyfriends and girlfriends, and husbands and wives. Not one same-sex couple was in sight, meaning the Korrasami addition makes no sense.

Imagine if, at the end of the Star Wars trilogy, the camera pulled back to show the story was all a simulation or just Anakin’s bad dream. Or imagine that Breaking Bad‘s finale took a turn and — hey presto! — there’s suddenly a zombie epidemic! Korra may as well have added King Arthur, dinosaurs, or an alien invasion at the last second.

Commentator “SirMontague” at IGN.com crafted a lengthy critique of the lazy, so-subtle-it-arguably-doesn’t-even-exist story twist. “Everything Korra and Asami did together was normal behavior for two close friends excluding the final 15 seconds of the finale,” he wrote. “It just comes across as a sudden decision that isn’t really developed at all through the series.”
Korrasami Jukes the Story for a Social Cause
But the worst result of the Korrasami twist is that suddenly, most fans are forced to ignore Korra’s story and instead, talk about a social cause — regardless of one’s view on it.

“Korrasami ruined Korra and not in the way most would think,” fan Andrew Kocurek wrote on the show’s Facebook page. “That’s all fans ever talk about now when referring to Korra. All the fan pages are filled with this. Nothing about ANYTHING else related to the story. No Varrick and Zhu Li, no Mako or Bolin, it’s all Korra and Asami. It’s so freaking annoying.”

This is simply a version of the “Jesus Juke,” which ignores the obvious original intent of an anecdote, joke, or work of art, and instead, turns it into an opportunity to teach a high-falutin’ Moral Lesson. Some Christian filmmakers constantly juke their own work. They ask people not to enjoy the film for its potentially God-exalting creative storytelling, but rather, to support the film to promote a special cause. Such stories are usually boring and are hardly enjoyable upon repeat viewings. Indeed, creators who market their cause over their story are often covering for audience disinterest or creative deficiency.

But Korra already had high audience interest and amazing creativity. And even if the show’s creators had chosen to add in a human exploration of sexual or social causes, they could have worked it in earlier in the story — right alongside other additions to the Avatar world such as automobiles and radio.

Instead they chose a last-second absurd “cause juke.” And at first that makes me not want to enjoy Korra again. You can enjoy a great story over and over but a cause-juked story is barely interesting the first time. All of the Korrasami talk made me feel, not like a kid on Saturday morning enjoying the best of animated storytelling, but rather, like a kid in an uptight Sunday school class. This notion makes Korra feel, at best, like an evangelical film in which any story is used as a means to the real end of promoting a social cause. And the creators, along with fans, seem to proclaim in sing-song voices, “All right, children, now that we’ve had our fun, it’s time for us all to Learn a Valuable Moral Lesson.”

But perhaps my initial reaction won’t last. Gloating Korrasami shippers quoted good-naturedly (or as a plain taunt) the phrase “Korrasami is canon; you gotta deal with it!” So I have dealt with it, by concluding that the creators’ attempted social cause juke is mechanical, silly, and unnecessary. That’s why someday I will re-view Korra and enjoy it solely as great storytelling. After all, great stories will outlast even their own creators’ attempt to bend them to serve alternative goals.

(Submitter note: kind of picked this fight but its does goes to show you just how deep in the Anti-SJW this guy is)

drivanmoffitt: Ok... Where the fuck are you getting the notion that sjws are calling Anakin an incel? I mean the term incel who can't seem to get into women's pants and blame their looks for it... Anakin isn't that at all, hell in Canon (new) he still depicted as being very faithful and loyal to his wife even after her death (granted he can't do much because he's stuck in a life support system but still), so where did you get that horseshit from?

Shawntheimmortal942: In the video 7:03 -8:05 but here’s the tweet https://mobile.twitter.com/MagsVisaggs/status/1244379462214574086also (submitter note: she was pointed the contradiction of her twit by other twitter followers, some of which seem to have a left-leaning view on things) this bitch looks like every goddamn feminist who would have an opinion like this.

drivanmoffitt: That's the opinion of one woman, one person, where in the new Canon do they suggest that Anakin is some incel prick?

Swantheimmortal942: Give it time, they’ll give her a comic series where she’ll write Anikin as a Nazi incel in a new book. My theory is they’ll do this to make Anikin look weak compared to Rey because even John Boyega said Rey ain’t shit compared to Anikin. Anyway, she’s the writer of the show Vagrant queens so I wouldn’t be surprised if marvel or disney Star Wars gave her a book to write and make it canon. Maybe it’ll be “Anikin: lost days” or “the truth”

drivanmoffitt: dude, you're just being paranoid, people on that tread pointed out the contradictions, so I doubt they would give her a book or comic to write involving Anakin. As for Rey, I like I her character, just because you bitch and moan about her being a mary sue (somehow...) doesn't make her an interesting perhaps, hell, the movies show that's she's NOT perfect, she has plenty of flaws, most of which relates to her abandonment issues and (justifiably) anger she has over it. Also, the same could be applied to Anakin and Luke too you know, why can't they be considered 'gary sues' too. I really don't see where you and all the other people who complain about Rey get the notion that she's a mary sue.

Shawntheimmortal942: Dude...watch this trailer about the new warriors book https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5PCWUCv1rnUand tell me that Disney wouldn’t okay an incel Anikin. Didn’t they already retcon that the empire was founded by a woman who was totally better than Palpatine? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jFpTYCfLiIsThey are trying sooooo~hard to erase past characters to push a narritive(also Kneon is a leftist so don’t even try to use that excuse, okay?) Rey is a Mary Sue, she left the new trilogy with EVERYTHING, Luke’s light saber(I heard they changed it to “Rey’s light saber” in the Star Wars Disney world store)palpatine’s powers, the ability to heal with the force which she didn’t train for(don’t even mention the books because if I’m watching a movie then I shouldn’t go read a fucking book to know what the hell is going on. It”s like when the injustice series had a prequel comic which doesn’t seem to be mentioned in the game)and is somehow “all the Jedi” even tho that comes right out of her ass. Rey’s abandonment issues are even more inconsistent! She knows that her parents are nobodies but uh oh now her father palpatine’s son and she’s making out with Kylo ren even tho he’s killed so many people and their romance was never established. Anakin has actual flaws from his anger to his impatience to his gullibility but in the end sacrifices his life to save his son and wasn’t Luke whiny bitch in the beginning? He was but then over time he grew and got stronger and even tried to save his father from the dark side. Rey and Kylo...what are they? Are they enemies? Are they in love? Is it a love hate relationship? I have no idea what was going on between them hell it would’ve been cool if Rey did end up joining Kylo in the last jedi because at least it shows her doing something interesting. But no, Rey is just Rey. Look, you can like Rey all you want but I just don’t find anything interesting about her and seeing her walk around getting everything is just more “the force is female” BS.

drivanmoffitt: oh joy more bullshitting anti-sjws... seriously dude, things are not like that at all, and at this point anti-sjw nonsense is simply a vehicle for far-right individual to push their ideology into a community they think is ripe for it. And to me, the Force is not female, nor is it male, I honestly think it's more neither, which I imagine you have an issue with don't you?

Shawntheimmortal942: First of all did you even watch the videos? Second, “Anti-SJW nonsense is simply a vehicle for the far right to push their ideology into a community they think is ripe for”? Yes~that totally isn’t what an SJW would say to poison the well or seeing a different point of view, that is a garbage rebuttal and you know it. Also really subtle on trying to call me a sexist too, pal. My issue isn’t the “force being female” my issue is this SJW bullshit getting shoved down our throats. All the male characters are turned into cowards or bitches while the fame characters are heroic. I’m just calling a spade a spade hell the media is constantly demonizing people who even dare to criticize last Jedi and you’re telling me there”s NO narrative being pushed down our throats?

drivanmoffitt: what? I'm not calling you a sexist, I indicated that I flatly don't think the Force, should it be a sentient entity, is neither male or female, and by the way, the guy you made a journal about is a FUCKING NEO-NAZI for crying out loud, as he pushed for some neo-nazis like shit both in the past and today, and has repeated be showed to be harassing cosplayers and making statements like "I wouldn't rape you", you are following individuals who are not good people and taking their word like gospel even their talking points of "go woke go broke" has been proven to be wrong. Captain Marvel made over 1.1 BILLION dollars in the box office, Black Panther made 1.3 BILLION, the new trilogy collectively made over 4.4 BILLION dollars, which by the way, Force Awakens is 2 billion, Last Jedi is 1.3 billion and Rise of Skywalker a billion, these industries are not going broke just because a bunch of idiots on the internet are complaining about it.

Cutting science funding to the bone is a wonderful thing: most of the stuff that makes it into journals is crap, data massaging is ubiquitous, peer review is a joke, and the science profession has become just another bunch of corrupt self-interested government contractors. Climate science is a crime syndicate, and evolutionary biology is an atheist priesthood.

You [explicative redacted] have far too high an opinion of yourselves. Most of you would struggle to make it in the drive-in window at McDonalds. You have few marketable skills.

[WARNING: STAR WARS THE LAST JEDI SPOILERS]

[The whole review is dumb and should be examined as bad, disingenuous criticism, this submission is just highlighting the more ideologically-charged nonsense]

Pretty much everything about The Last Jedi is a conscious slap in the face to Star Wars’ white male fans. For example, all of the leading generals in the Resistance are women, including Princess General Leia (Carrie Fisher), which explains why they went from running the galaxy in the previous movie to being reduced to a handful of ships in this one. All of the First Order’s soldiers and generals save one are white men, while the Resistance is staffed entirely by non-whites and women, with the exception of Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac).

Poe is by far the most interesting character in the movie, even considering how the script goes out of its way to shit on him. You can practically hear the writers muttering, “Fuck you, toxic masculinity!” every time he’s on screen. Despite being forward-thinking and courageous, Poe is constantly slapped down by his female superiors for being too “hot-headed.” For example, despite his bravery in taking out one of the First Order’s cruisers at the beginning of the movie, Leia demotes him for being “reckless.”

Later on in the movie, after Leia falls into a coma after miraculously surviving being blasted into open space (don’t ask), Poe discovers that her replacement, the purple-haired (yes, I’m serious) HR lady Holdo (Laura Dern) is planning to evacuate the Resistance’s last cruiser into unarmed transports, a suicidal and cowardly move. He intelligently proclaims a mutiny, only for Leia to side with Holdo, whose plan ends up getting all but two dozen members of the Resistance killed. Heckuva job, Holdy!

The film’s C-plot, starring Finn (John Boyega), is equally insipid. Frustrated with HR lady Holdo’s complete inability to lead, Finn teams up with Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran), a communist Montagnard with Down syndrome, to find a codebreaker who can keep the First Order from tracking the Resistance through hyperspace. They go to the resort planet of Canto Bight and literally start murdering people for the crime of being rich. This is Ghostbusters–tier dumb.

But none of this compares to how The Last Jedi rapes the character of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). The main plot follows Rey (Daisy Ridley), the Mary Sue feminist street urchin, as she tries to convince Luke to help the Resistance and train her to use the Force. Luke initially refuses, whining about how the Jedi “deserve” to end, before reluctantly agreeing to Rey’s demands. Hamill’s performance is embarrassingly bad and Luke’s character arc is a sick joke, rivaling how The Force Awakens depicted Han Solo as a deadbeat Peter Pan.

One good thing about The Last Jedi is that Rey is given far less screen time then in The Force Awakens. She’s just as smarmy, unlikable, and unrealistic—her bizarre telepathic dialogues with antagonist Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) are a case in point—but this is still an improvement. Unfortunately, the addition of SJW masturbation fantasies like Rose and Holdo—who I’m pretty sure was given purple hair as a deliberate middle finger to the fans—drowns out this positive move.

...

Finally, General Leia somehow manages to completely evade responsibility for Kylo Ren falling to the dark side of the Force, even though she’s his mother. The plots of both The Last Jedi and The Force Awakens have Darth Bugman focusing all his rage on Han Solo (his father) and Luke Skywalker, with Leia somehow skating off. And despite the fact that Leia’s son is the second-in-command of the First Order—meaning she is directly responsible for the galaxy being plunged into war—nobody has a problem with her serving as one of the Resistance’s senior leaders.

...

The central problem with the new Star Wars movies—or revivals of any classic franchise, for that matter—is that contemporary filmmakers don’t understand what made the originals good. Star Wars was a product of the 1970’s: an epic tale of good vs. evil, drawing on cultural motifs familiar to Americans of the time. Bugmen like Rian Johnson or J.J. Abrams can see the surface elements of Star Wars, but without being immersed in the cultural milieu that birthed it, the best they can do is high-budget fan fiction with SJW nonsense drizzled on top.

That’s all The Force Awakens or The Last Jedi are: cosplay with CGI. The X-wings and lightsabers and aliens may look like the ones in the original trilogy, but the heart and soul aren’t there. In their place is poor writing, left-wing agitprop, and dumb jokes. The Force Awakens was dull and boring, but The Last Jedi will leave you longing for the earnestness of Jar Jar Binks. Yes, it’s that bad.

The irony is that Kylo Ren’s nihilistic mantra of “let[ting] the past die,” while completely inappropriate for a Star Wars movie, is precisely how modern moviegoers should treat the franchise itself. Star Wars is dead, nerds. It’s not coming back. It’s time to take it behind the woodshed and put a bullet in its brain. The original movies were great and some of the video games were pretty good, but the monkey’s dead and the show is over.

Rational Christianity #fundie rationalchristianity.net

Does God force us to worship him by threatening us with hell?

If God were truly forcing us to worship him, 99-100% of the world's population would be Christian. Obviously, this is not the case, so perhaps God's intention is not to force us after all. Many people reject Christianity and even the notion of God, so clearly we have the freedom to believe God and hell don't exist. If God meant to force everyone to worship him, he would not have allowed people to doubt his existence or coming judgment.

But suppose that one believes God exists and will throw those who don't worship him into hell. When the scenario is depicted as a choice between flattering a despot or torture, it seems that one is unethically forced into worship. In reality, the choice is between choosing to do good by loving God and following him, or choosing to reject God and do evil. One is rewarded for doing good and punished for doing evil, but this is not necessarily coercion. In society, people are punished with fines or incarceration for doing wrong, yet no one would say that we're forced to obey the law; in fact, many choose to commit crimes, even when there is a great chance they'll be caught. In many other situations, people choose to receive immediate gratification despite knowing there will be negative consequences later. People get drunk, knowing they'll have a hangover the next day; students have fun during the weekend instead of doing homework, knowing they'll get bad grades on Monday; people conscious of their weight indulge in foods that are delicious but also fattening. In each case, there is a clear choice: self-gratification now and unhappiness later, or self-discipline now and reward later.

Coercion is more than the existence of a negative consequence: it is a threat or an irresistible force that causes a person to do something they would not have done otherwise. If someone becomes a Christian because they come to know Christ and want to follow him, they aren't being forced into that choice; they may not have even thought about hell. On the other hand, if someone becomes a Christian because they're afraid of going to hell, their position is similar to that of a child who doesn't do wrong because he's afraid of being caught and punished by his parents. Is the child being coerced? Technically, he's making a choice he wouldn't otherwise make because of fear. Ideally, he would do the right thing because he wanted to; but if the only way to motivate him to do the right thing is by threatening punishment, better that than his doing the wrong thing. Similarly, worshiping God is the right thing to do, and is in our best interests, and God would rather we come to him out of love instead of fear. If nothing else will get us to do the right thing, fear is a last-resort motivator. However, as there are people who freely choose not to worship God, and others who choose to worship out of a genuine desire to do so, it's clear that God is not forcing us to worship him.

[From "The unspoken side of rape"]

Isn’t it more than just a little fascinating that underneath all this hoopla about rape is a whole lot of women who, when thinking about some guy pinning them down in a kitchen and forcing a hand up their blouse, generally tend to do so with their own hand or a vibrator between their legs? You don’t have to like it to know its true.

And isn’t it also interesting that the most rape obsessive morons on the planet also happen to be some of the ugliest morons on the planet?

Consider this. If rape awareness was a religion, Andrea Dworkin was The Fucking Pope. The 300+ lb. basilisk of man-hate had a face big enough and pockmarked enough to be used to fake a lunar landing. Her body was roughly the size and shape of a small sperm whale.

And she thought of little else in her life other than rape. The subject drove almost everything she said and did.

She even claimed to have been drugged and raped in 1999 in Paris, an accusation that was never proven and which came under a great deal of scrutiny, apparently for damned good reason.

C’mon people, Dworkin’s problem wasn’t that she was raped. Her problem, and I mean all along, was that she wasn’t.

Did I say she was the Pope of Rape Awareness? Let me take that back. She wasn’t the Pope, she was the Jimmy Swaggert. Like a corrupt televangelist who only shuts up about sexual purity and morality long enough to secure the services of a five dollar hooker, Dworkin was the poster child for “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

Or, in other words, she was obsessed with rape, quite possibly even creating the illusion it happened to her, precisely because her worth on the sexual market was measured in pesos.

Dworkin wanted to be raped, which in her mind meant being sexually desired, but didn’t have the goods to make that happen so she made a career of hating both the source of her rejection, men, and the source of her competition, attractive women.

Go figure, her other pet peeve was porn.

It is much the same with the SlutWalks, those rapidly growing celebrations of stupidity and cellulite taking over the western landscape. Most of the women there may be dancing Dworkin, but money is on the idea that when not participating in the SlutWalks these girls are desperately trying to fuck their way into feeling attractive.

Attractive enough that a man would lose control of himself to have his way with them
.

[...]

The real lesson here is simple. The concept of rape has a lot of utility for women. One, it feeds their narcissistic need to feel irresistible. Two, if feeds their narcissistic need to feel irresistible. That level of irresistibility is the pinnacle of a woman’s sexual viability and worth. And for a whole lot of women, sexual worth is the only self-worth they know.

Almost every movie or TV show you have ever seen about aliens or the Moon came from a Freemasonic director! All of these were made by Masons: Close Encounters of the Third Kind, ET, Taken, Alien 1-4, Independence Day, 2001: Space Odyssey, Star Wars, Star Trek, Men In Black, From the Earth to the Moon, Apollo 13, War of the Worlds, and the X-Files.

Gene Roddenberry, the creator of Star Trek was a 33rd Degree Scottish-Rite Freemason. This why we have “Scotty,” Spock’s Kabalistic/Masonic “V” hand gesture, pyramid-shaped communicators, and other Masonic symbols. The name Captain “Kirk” comes from “Circe” and means “church” in Scottish. So the church (Captain Kirk) is the head of the starship Enterprise. What enterprise? Whose enterprise do you think? Take note that the Vatican actually funds and controls every astronomical telescope and observatory in the world. All findings run through the Vatican before both the public and the scientific communities. What does this tell us? Meanwhile, the Masonic movie/music industries give us Stars, Superstars, Devas, Celebrities, Models, and Idols to worship.

George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars also floods his movies with Masonic symbology. Yoda is the name of a Masonic teacher. The Djed-eye (Jedi) comes from the ancient Egyptian as noted earlier. The idea of Jedi Knights and a round table comes from the Knights Templar. Skywalker is the name of the 13th Tzolkien in the Mayan calendar, the symbol of which looks just like the top of Luke’s flight helmet. Anakin comes from Anakim or the Sons of Anak in the Bible and Darth Vader no doubt comes from the “Da’ath” black sephiroth of the Jewish Kabbalah. These occult interpretations of Hollywood movies and TV programs are well understood by initiates, but purposely meant to bewilder the public.

I sometimes wonder whether anti-fascism isn’t driven by some sexual pressure, i.e. the tikkun olam fags are really upset that they aren’t getting a piece of the action, so they agitate as though their balls are on fire.

Healthy women seem to have a thing for militant guys, and that must be extremely frustrating for the Dilberts out there, so they come up with all sorts of reasons why these guys should be condemned eternally for their damned sexiness.

I mean, shouldn’t academic weenies have a shot at these hot specimens from northern Europe instead of being stuck in sterile institutions with clumsy female nerds who have the sex appeal of lab monkeys?

This is why Morris Dees is such a hero to these types. Through shameless self-promotion and deceptive advertising the man achieved alpha male status despite taking on a cause associated with the dregs of manhood. Really, a man to look up to, and one whose achievements every weaselly liar should strive to emulate.

Oh, America, how proud I am of what you have wrought: the Clintonian scumbag with a girl under the table on her knees, selling out his own folk. A truly glorious specimen of homo nematodensis.

The Hidden Traps of Atheism

On Atheism-

1. Abiogenesis is true.
2. Pre-Biotic Evolution is true.
3. It's fine to murder babies.
4. Morality does not exist.
5. Nothing should stop gays from marrying their boy lovers.

Therefore, these feel that there was nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything, and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself into self-replicating bits which then magically came to life.

Therefore, we are merely concomitant nimieties of the natural world having developed fairly recently on a minute speck left high and dry somewhere in a dreary and meaningless universe, doomed to oblivion one by one and certainly collectively in a relatively not too distant future.

I am not saying that every atheist feels obligated to go kill people. In fact, such an obligation (if not for the variable of self-interest) would make no sense. I’m saying that, to an atheist, there’s nothing wrong with killing people (since morality is nothing but subjective opinion). An atheist, if true to his title, sees nothing wrong with events like Columbine, September 11, the Oklahoma City bombing, etc.

Whereas individualist cultures are biased toward separation from the wider group, individuals in collectivist societies have a strong sense of group identity and group boundaries based on genetic relatedness as a result of the greater importance of group conflict during their evolutionary history. Middle Eastern societies are characterized by anthropologists as “segmentary societies” organized into relatively impermeable, kinship-based groups (e.g., Coon 1958, 153; Eickelman 1981, 157-174). Group boundaries are often reinforced through external markers such as hair style or clothing, as Jews have often done throughout their history. [...]

[...]

Jews are at the extreme of this Middle Eastern tendency toward hyper-collectivism and hyper-ethnocentrism—a phenomenon that goes a long way toward explaining the chronic hostilities in the area. I give many examples of Jewish hyper-ethnocentrism in my trilogy and have suggested in several places that Jewish hyper-ethnocentrism is biologically based (MacDonald 1994, Ch. 8; 1998a, Ch. 1). It was noted above that individualist European cultures tend to be more open to strangers than collectivist cultures such as Judaism. In this regard, it is interesting that developmental psychologists have found unusually intense fear reactions among Israeli infants in response to strangers, while the opposite pattern is found for infants from North Germany.(14) The Israeli infants were much more likely to become “inconsolably upset” in reaction to strangers, whereas the North German infants had relatively minor reactions to strangers. The Israeli babies therefore tended to have an unusual degree of stranger anxiety, while the North German babies were the opposite—findings that fit with the hypothesis that Europeans and Jews are on opposite ends of scales of xenophobia and ethnocentrism.

I provide many examples of Jewish hyper-ethnocentrism in my trilogy on Judaism. Recently, I have been much impressed with the theme of Jewish hyper-ethnocentrism in the writings of Israel Shahak, most notably his co-authored Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel (Shahak & Mezvinsky 1999). In their examination of current Jewish fundamentalists and their influence in Israel, Shahak and Mezvinsky argue that present-day fundamentalists attempt to recreate the life of Jewish communities before the Enlightenment (i.e., prior to about 1750). During this period the great majority of Jews believed in Cabbala—Jewish mysticism. Influential Jewish scholars like Gershom Scholem ignored the obvious racialist, exclusivist material in the Cabbala by using words like “men”, “human beings”, and “cosmic” to suggest the Cabbala has a universalist message. The actual text says salvation is only for Jews, while non-Jews have “Satanic souls” (p. 58).

Why Star Wars: “The Force Awakens” is a Parable That Supports US Empire

Just about everything in the new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens, is hard to believe, I mean, at least in terms of consistency. The plot is full of holes, but older Star Wars fans are willing to suspend disbelief for that warm and fuzzy feeling of childhood regression. Myself included. But in our modern day screen culture that is the US, where we sell wars and elections like toothpaste, I suppose suspension of disbelief is a daily occurrence.

People want to believe. The corporate culture produces “just war” narratives to satisfy an insatiable appetite for violence, exactly what Star Wars delivers, except this time, I would argue, it’s been turned upside down in the service of a real empire: The US Empire.

I am not saying that The Force Awakens was intentionally made as an imperial piece of propaganda for US wars, but it’s hard not to make the connections between Disney’s history of racism and xenophobia, the total absence of the Dark Side’s politics (other than ISIS like nihilism), and the way in which the “good guys” are always innocent and being attacked by an evil force that literally hates their freedom. The Dark Side in The Force Awakens is reconstituted as The First Order that explicitly engages in an act of mass terrorism to destroy the Republic, i.e democracy.

On a positive side, the actors playing the parts of Ren, Rey, Finn and Poe were excellent. The toned down use of CGI is a plus, and the landscape shots and the sets of The First Order were impressive. This thing was even shot on 35mm film!

Don’t get me wrong, I love Sci-Fi, but I am far more interested in deeper, radical socio-political-economic narratives you would find in the writings of Iain Banks or Kim Stanley Robinson. Star Wars is a kids movie, but I can’t help but see this new film as cynical in light of our current political climate. It’s reactionary in a way that strengthens current myths in our endless “war on terrorism”.

The Force Awakens (TFA) is weirdly post-post-modernist in that it kind of eschews skepticism, and embraces a kind of hopeful cluelessness. Indeed, the original film was made in the 70’s coming off of a massive cultural and political rebellion. The US just lost it’s first war after an illegal and immoral invasion of Vietnam. Corruption was in your face with Watergate and the Church Committee hearings.

You could easily identify with the rebel message of the original Star Wars as a fight against an unjust system. Stormtroopers were seen as either Hitler’s SS or riot cops bashing student heads, depending on your point of view. Today, 14 years into the Neo-cons endless war against independent states in the Middle East completely recasts the context for any war movie.

Terrorism has replaced communism as the existential threat to the US. It’s a very useful propaganda tool for justifying large military budgets, illegal invasions, illegal assassinations, illegal spying, illegal detentions, and a shredding of the US Constitution. Real war planners don’t really believe terrorism is a threat at all, in terms of an actual challenge to state power.

Non-state actors like Al Qaeda and ISIS don’t kill anywhere near the numbers that their state counterparts do. Industrial state terrorism like that conducted by the US in Iraq and Libya have murdered millions of innocents. And by definition, terrorism is the use of violence against civilians to advance a political cause. That definition applies equally to both retail (non-states) and wholesale (states) terrorists.

In TFA, it’s clear The First Order doesn’t want to take state power, unlike their previous counterparts: Darth Vader and the Emperor. Their goal is total destruction, total domination and total obedience, an existential threat of, literally, the first order. They are terrorists by definition.

With TFA, you can almost see how this warped world we have arrived at in 2015 could remake the original and interpret the Rebels as US soldiers fighting cult-like fascists with no politics other than nihilism (aka ISIS). Interestingly, we learn that the Stormtroopers in this Star Wars are taken as children and indoctrinated with one belief system: obedience. And in a very insightful moment, Captain Phasma asks Finn, “who gave you permission to remove your helmet?” (mask?). These are not-so-subtle references to an ISIS like world: abduction, obedience and anti-individualism. (okay, yes, you can say the same thing about the US military, except its abduction by economics).

The explicit lack of politics of the Dark Side, other than nihilism, makes it even more politically current by what scraps are left on the table. This strikes me as a very Disney thing to do: simple narratives of good vs. evil. If the original Star Wars was subtle political commentary, and I think it clearly was, the new Star Wars is more like political anti-commentary. It says more by what’s left out.

As criticized as the three prequel Star Wars movies were, George Lucas actually explained the political landscape of how the emperor rose to power, and made not so subtle references to the lunacy of the George W. Bush administration. Anakin said, “If you are not with me, then you are my enemy”. Under the guise of being attacked (a false flag attack), the Emperor demanded that the senate hand him full power, alongside a reduction of liberties (i.e. the Patriot Act). Not gonna happen in a Disney/JJ Abrams movie.

And of course, this film is a complete remake of the original ’77 film, repackaged on a foundation of quicksand with no new original ideas, and is a kind of fluff simulacra a la Baudrillard, arguably a reflection of the modern propaganda spun towards current day citizens of empire with the intent to turn the world upside down and portray the aggressors as innocent bystanders of someone else’s evil.

In other words, US citizens are always portrayed as innocent victims in support of truth and justice, and that their government is benevolent and full of good intent. Today, as a case in point, the dominant narrative is that ISIS came out of nowhere and has nothing to do with the US invasion of Iraq, or its policies in the Middle East.

To any clear headed observer, this is a blatant falsehood, but to a student of history, it’s a despicable distortion starting with the CIA overthrow of the democratically elected government of Mosaddeq in Iran, and the US policy of destabilizing secular Arab states for over six decades, especially those that chose a course independent of the US hegemon. Not to mention support of the Mujahideen and Al Qaeda in Afghanistan ( see this photo of Reagan meeting with the Mujahideen in the White House: http://bit.ly/1OfEjIg ).

So, in a similar fashion, the Rebels in The Force Awakens are always innocent victims responding to an outside Evil of great magnitude. Except today, that great Evil isn’t fascist states hell bent on world domination, they are rogue nihilists Attacking Us For Our Freedoms™.

For both the audience of Star Wars and the US public generally, we are both meant to identify with the good side of the Force, but instead of Luke Skywalker as the ultimate savior in the film, we just need to endorse a yearly Pentagon budget of $600 billion to rule the world, with the best of intentions, of course.

So with that…

THE COMPARISONS:

Star Wars: The Force Awakens repackages Episode IV almost entirely:

1 Rey = Luke

2 Finn = Leia

3 Ren = Darth Vader

4 Death Star = Planet Weapon (seriously, again?)

5 Jakku = Tatooine

6 New bar scene = equals old bar scene

7 Obi Wan, the mentor, dies = Han Solo, the mentor, dies

8 Rebels meet before they attack death star = rebels meet before they attack planet weapon (same scene basically)

9 R2D2 carries message = BB-8 carries message (a map that makes NO SENSE at all in this case)

10 Rebels are underfunded = rebels are underfunded (how this is possible is a total mystery since they, um, WON last time!)

And on it goes…

Also…as we look closer:

PLOT LINES TO CONSIDER:

I am supposed to believe Luke just gives up because of guilt over training Ren because he went to the dark side, and self-exiles to some far away place? Seems like a chump move for a guy who was the original hero. Shit, not even Obi Wan acted that cowardly. At least he stayed within earshot of Luke as we was growing up.

So, there is a jigsaw like digital map (why the fuck does it look like a puzzle? seriously?) that someone made to identify Luke’s location, even though Luke doesn’t want to be found, and isn’t training Jedi anymore. So why exactly is Luke such a threat to The First Order? I mean the dude just stuck his tail between his legs and ran. He blames himself for creating this mess, and then runs away from it? What are the filmmakers unintentionally saying about this guy?

And who made the map? Can’t he just email the location, encrypted with PGP, and send the thing on to the rebels? I mean, can’t the Map-maker just tell a couple of comrades where Luke is, or did he die being the sole carrier? How did he royally fuck that mission up? Was it a mission? If so, why was this Map-maker on his own if this was so goddamn important? And how, do tell, does a digital map get split up into perfect puzzle pieces? WTF?

Ok, let’s say that Luke made the map and split it up on purpose with R2D2. What’s the point? Why even make a goddamn map in the first place? Can’t you just let your friends know where you are going? Again, encrypted mass email? WTF?

Ok, what is up with The First Order anyway? I get that they look like the 3rd Reich Nazis, but they act more like a planet-destroying ISIS. And how exactly how did the last rebel alliance royally screw up their victory? I mean, how did these guys get their hands on massive quantities of ships, technology, and weapons so easily? Are we to believe the Republic is that weak, and incapable of, oh i dunno, disarming it’s enemies!?

Are the filmmakers really saying that General Leia and Luke are that truly incompetent not to see the rising Nazis/ISIS in their midsts? Did the Republic invade the Star Wars version of the Middle East and set the groundwork for the rise of The First Order? Where were the anti-fascists?

This isn’t necessarily JJ Abrams problem as much as it is the shallowness of the original idea of the Dark/Light side of the Force. That dichotomy is so ridiculously simple, it doesn’t allow for much in the way of nuance. Star Wars is truly a fundamentalist world. But to Lucas’ credit, he tried to explain the larger political context. Clearly, JJ Abrams and Disney don’t really give a shit about that.

If Ren was trained by Luke, there is NOT a chance in hell that either Rey or Finn could have fought him for more than one second in their lightsaber battle at the end. Not one second, especially given the supreme powers that Ren displayed earlier, like stopping a laser blast mid-air, or pulling a guy across a room using the Force. To be consistent in the Star Wars world, Jedis need training, and there’s now way to believe that Rey, let alone Finn, could have survived that encounter. It was a joke. But, I supposer there is one cop-out for the filmmakers: Luke Skywalker is the WORST teacher ever in the history of the Jedi.

The Star Wars universe have some pretty fucking bad parenting problems if all the kids keep falling over to the dark side. How the fuck did Leia, Solo and Luke fuck that one up so bad? It’s seems pretty clear that Rey and Ren are cousins, that Rey is the daughter of Luke, so why did he abandon her? That coward of a parent just sits sulking on an island hidden somewhere in the Universe, and doesn’t go in search of his daughter? Ok, for the sake of argument, lets say it’s not his daughter, but this guy is a JEDI and Ren’s uncle, and he still leaves his nephew behind? WTF?

Generally speaking, Empires don’t destroy the places they conquer which is precisely why they are EMPIRES!! They conquer land to extract resources as the US did in securing its hegemony in the Middle East. Even ISIS conquers land, steals the oil, and sells it to Turkey! (side note: ISIS sells oil to Bilal Erdogan, the son of Turkey’s president, Recep Erdogan). Why would The First Order destroy the planets they want to conquer? It’s far too nihilistic. Where are the politics of The First Order? Is it really that simple: nihilism? This is the strongest evidence for comparing The First Order to ISIS.

Also, why do they do what they do? Apparently, they aren’t racists (Finn) or misogynists (they have females in leadership roles), but yet they conquer to only destroy? Where does that make sense? The best antagonists are smart ones. These guys are cardboard cutouts. Pretty fucking stupid. At least the old emperor was a senator first who skillfully connived his way into dictatorial power. There is logic to that.

Remember when The First Order destroy the home world of the Republic, are we to believe that they are in the same solar system as the rebels? Because we see the red laser sun-ray gun killing planets from the Rebel’s home world. How the fuck is that possible? i mean it’s been 30 years since the original Star Wars, and a lot has progressed in our Sci Fi worlds, and in particular, our understanding of the distance between stars. I was baffled by this obvious oversight.

Was I the only one concerned with the repeat of Mr FishHead talking about the shields? Another bad rip off. But more importantly, it took them a total of maybe 60 seconds to figure out where to attack the planet weapon. That was pathetic, something that even an 8 year old wouldn’t believe. Just a little too easy, and a little to squeaky clean and fast, based on so many assumptions about a weapon they know nothing about. At least with the Death Star, there were STOLEN PLANS that were studied for a long time to find a weakness. That was believable, this was horrendously not believable.

Wasn’t it just a little too convenient that Solo and Chewy found Finn and Rey at the exact time and place that they did? It’s not impossible in Star Wars world, okay, but it is highly improbable. I was just rolling my eyes at this one. At least write something into the script that makes this encounter just slightly believable. Solo claims to have been tracking the ship, but WTF, for how long? Thirty years?

Ok, how is it that the rebels this time under “General” Leia are so under-equipped? I mean, didn’t they WIN last time? They defeated the Emperor with the help of Darth Vader, and you might think that they have the upper hand in terms of force, no? Somehow the tables got turned once again significantly in favor of the Dark Side. Yes, it is necessary for a plot line, but you got some explaining to do JJ.

I am all for a little suspension of disbelief, especially in a space movie, but this was just too much.

In some remote southern regions of Malawi, it's traditional for girls to be made to have sex with a paid sex worker known as a "hyena" once they reach puberty. The act is not seen by village elders as rape, but as a form of ritual "cleansing". However, as Ed Butler reports, it has the potential to be the opposite of cleansing - a way of spreading disease.

...

And most shockingly, here in Nsanje, teenage girls, after their first menstruation, are made to have sex over a three-day period, to mark their passage from childhood to womanhood. If the girls refuse, it's believed, disease or some fatal misfortune could befall their families or the village as a whole.

"Most of those I have slept with are girls, school-going girls," Aniva tells me.

"Some girls are just 12 or 13 years old, but I prefer them older. All these girls find pleasure in having me as their hyena. They actually are proud and tell other people that this man is a real man, he knows how to please a woman."

...

It's clear, given the hyena's duties, that HIV is a huge risk to the community. The UN estimates that one in 10 of all Malawians carry the virus, so I ask Aniva if he is HIV-positive. He astounds me by saying that he is - and that he doesn't mention this to a girl's parents when they hire him.


A very interesting article throughout. To be clear, later on it is pointed out that this is a dying practice that is condemned by the government and church in Malawi. I see this mainly as an example of how shockingly different cultures can be and how resistant to change they are. While I am sure that the thread will have a lot of flatly racist comments about how primitive and benighted these people are, I think it is important to be humble and not miss the log in our own eye while pointing out the speck in someone else's. Our own cultures have their own stubborn flaws, and the wise thing to draw from articles like these is the importance of self-reflection.

Wow... A literal thread about cultural child rape, but quick... Someone might judge them! Let's premptively call anyone so inclined a racist. Your a piece of work aren't you.


To be clear, I think that what they are doing is horrible. However, I believe in hating the sin but loving the sinner and "judge not lest ye be judged". If you read the article, the parents do this out of the honest, heartfelt belief that it is the best thing for their daughters. I think they are wrong, but as a parent myself I can relate to the intention even if I am horrified by where it has taken them. I certainly do not see them as monsters or bad people, even if they are doing very bad things. I just hope that I am not harming my own children when I do what I do for them out of my own honest, heartfelt desire to give them the best.

And as for preempting racism in this thread, let's be honest here. If you've been on SB for even a little while, you know where threads on hot button issues like this lead. Pedophilia + Africa + Cultural differences = Torrents of shitposts on SB. Not everyone who is horrified by this is a racist, but threads like these DO bring out the racists and ITGs.


Anonymous Misogynist on The Pirate Bay torrent site #sexist pedestrian.tv

It is utterly tragic that MRAs aren’t given the respect they deserve. It’s truly galling that just because their entire worldview was formed around a profound sense of entitlement induced by watching thousands of hours of harem anime, no one takes them seriously. It’s heartbreaking to think that people dismiss them out of hand just because – instead of addressing actual issues like the rates of suicide and depression among men – they focus on dumb shit like editing out all the parts of The Last Jedi that aren’t centred around men.

If that last thing sounded too ridiculous to be true, you have clearly forgotten which time it is that we live in and the corresponding fact that pretty much nothing now is too ridiculous to be true. We live in the most aggressively ridiculous timeline. Accordingly, the self-described “chauvinist cut” of TLJ is very, very real, and exactly as dumb as it sounds.

Uploaded to The Pirate Bay yesterday by an anonymous user, the “The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit” is, according to their own description “basically The Last Jedi minus Girlz Powah and other silly stuff“. You might be wondering how this is possible, seeing as the film is still a ways off from its DVD release date, but the intrepid nerdlinger(s) who decided to make this possible were so impatient for a version of TLJ where boys don’t get old off that they used a dodgy camrip with hardcoded subtitles:

The resulting movie is (wait for it …) 46 minutes long. Yeah I know, it’s not ideal. It’s made from a CAM source (the most recent HDTC one with the Asian hard subs, which is pretty watchable). It has issues. But it had to be done. You will probably enjoy it most when you view it less as a blockbuster movie and more as some kind of episode from some non-existent mediocre Star Wars series.

If you’re wondering what sort of stuff was cut, here are some examples:

* “Cut out most shots showing female fighters/pilots and female officers commanding people around/having ideas.“
* “NO HALDO (sic)! She simply doesn’t exist. Her whole subplot doesn’t exist. The Kamikaze is carried out by Poe. ( = Poe dies.)“
* “Leia never scolds, questions nor demotes Poe. He is a respected and very skilled high-ranking member of the resistance.“
* “When there’s a scene where a woman is cut in making some important statement that can be substituted by another statement by a guy, then she gets cut out. Works pretty well actually.“
* “Wookie eats the Porg, or at least isn’t interrupted in trying to do so.“
* “No green milk.” (What the fuck)

As you can see, it is clearly the product of a deranged mind. It’s so perfectly bad that it might just be a troll but, for the love of God, I downloaded it to check (please don’t tell the cops) and all the edits they say are in there totally are, so I can’t imagine this was all that far away from someone’s actual convictions.

Whichever weirdo threw this together is also not entirely sold on it:

Obviously it’s far from perfect. The source is not even on DVD-level. Some of the technical edits were slacked because why not, it’s a CAM source (e.g. some masks and Snoke disappearing). Sometimes there’s an extreme zoom despite the mediocre quality. There are plotholes and continuity errors and some cuts are not as smooth as they should be, especially audio transition-wise.

But for what it’s worth, it can now at least be viewed without feeling nauseaus about most of the terrible big and small decisions they made in this film. Also, at least the intro sequence is now very watchable and actually much cooler without all of Leia’s nitpicking. Now it’s all one united Resistance fighting without inner conflict and that’s much more satisfying to watch. Due to the extreme shortening, the whole movie is much more fast-paced now, at times unfortuantely also rushed due to a lack of usable filler footage.

Dear, God.

To be sure, it's very hard to be an atheist, especially in the modern world, which may explain why so many atheists apparently have various forms of neuroses – the denial and constant need for suppression of reality simply runs too deep and eventually takes a toll, which logically leads to psychological problems. For example, in his seminal work, Tractatus Logico-Theologicus, the eminent scholar Dr. John Warwick Montgomery points out a truism: "Psychologists such as Paul Vitz (Faith of the Fatherless) have persuasively argued that God-denial is a psychological aberration, explicable by the unfortunate experiences of the atheists holding that viewpoint

The worm mentality is a highly addictive mentality because it is driven by a very ego-pleasing assumption that we are supreme at something—in this case, supreme at being hideous. All humans want to think they are good at something. In the worm mentality, we claim to excel in being heinous. Of course having humans reject us is just stage one. The ultimate victory is to believe that we have succeeded in overwhelming God Himself. For the unsaved soul, the ultimate accomplishment is to believe that God has eternally rejected us because even with all of His God powers, He simply can’t bear to be in our ultra-evil presence. For the Christian, the ultimate victory is to believe that we have succeeded in getting God to turn away from us—even to revoke our salvation. Again, the logic stream is that we’re so awesome at being hideous that even God finds Himself hopelessly trumped.

Now in real life, God is never threatened by His own creations, nor is He impressed by our delusions of grandeur. When God does not shut down on us and give us that ultimate form of rejection which our egos are craving, we often try to help Him along by rejecting Him first. We like to go about this in a grand, boastful way, saying things like, “I know that God finds me unbearable, so I’m going to ask Him to please throw me into Hell. After all, I wouldn’t want to corrupt His perfect Heaven with my vile self.” Notice how such thinking exalts you as the ultimate giver—the one who is voluntarily sacrificing yourself in order to protect God from further distress. This is nothing more than ego run amuck. God doesn’t need your protection, and what you’re trying to protect Him from is a threat which only exists in your own mind. You have decided that because you are so supremely vile, even your own Creator feels personally threatened by you. You tell yourself that you actually possess the power to obstruct God’s plans, wreck His Heaven, or halt His universe. My, what a powerful little thing you are. And if you weren’t so altruistic in nature—so willing to crucify yourself in order to save us all from your toxic presence, well, we’d all be lost. Once you set yourself up in this kind of ultimate savior role, you are naturally going to be opposed to truth, because truth is going to be a major pride buster and your pride is out of control.

The worm mentality is a self-destructive mentality in which you are the only one who suffers. By the time you’re done cutting yourself off from other people and from God, you end up alone, bitter, and empty. You see, the truth is that you have deep core needs which only God can satisfy. The whole notion that you can ever cut ties with Him is as absurd as claiming you can get through a day without breathing. You really don’t get to call how the universe runs because you are not in control. You will never be in control, and God will never be impressed with your vileness. To God, you’re not worse than anyone else, you’re just caught up in a superiority complex that is driven by an intense fear of being average and forgettable. Well, God offers you something better than being ultra-vile. He says that you are very special to Him and that you matter to Him. He doesn’t say you’re ultimate—He says that He is ultimate, and you are an insignificant speck by comparison. But you’re His speck, and He made you for the purpose of forming a positive, personal relationship with you. In order for that relationship to get off the ground, you’re going to need to stop trying to dominate Him and you’re going to have to open yourself up to accepting a different value system. Right now you’re defining your worth by how hideous you are. It’s your great vileness that makes you have value in your eyes. When we fear that we don’t have a chance at competing in positive areas, we turn to negative ones. At bottom, we just want to excel at something. Well, God makes succeeding with Him very easy because He isn’t comparing you to other people. You don’t have to be super scum or super good to hold onto His love. He loves you because He wants to—it has nothing to do with you impressing Him. God says that if you will submit to His Authority in your life and ask Him to make you all that He wants you to be, He will break you out of this self-destructive path you’re on and teach you a much better way to live. But first you have to decide that you want to be healed, because it’s not God’s usual style to force cures on people. He gives us the option of wallowing in egotistical delusions and deciding that we are having a far greater impact on Him than we really are. How anticlimactic would it be to live your life thinking you’re ultra evil, only to get to Heaven and have God say, “Why didn’t you ever listen to Me on earth? We could be a lot closer than we are right now.” God doesn’t find you threatening in the slightest. He sees you more like a little child who is refusing to pay attention in school, therefore you’re not learning the basics of reading and writing. Certainly immaturity has its appeal, because growing up requires a lot of work and some pride grinding adjustments. But choosing to grow up is the far more rewarding choice in the long run, and the only one that will truly satisfy your soul.

[Regarding a Left Behind remake]
I find it sad and kind of disturbing that Cloud Ten Pictures, who have traditionally been known for making "spiritual" if not fully outright Christian films has 1) decided to reboot a perfectly fine trilogy and 2) made really suspect casting choices, if the rumors are to be believed. I find it hard to believe that the moral and ethical integrity, as well as the doctrinally sound principles portrayed in the books, and to a lesser extent the original movies, will be preserved when you have such a notorious "Hollywood type" in the main role. I don't dispute Nic Cage's acting ability, I absolutely love his performance in the National Treasure movies. What I dispute is his moral standpoint, and his willingness to portray a character that in his original state in the books is a 100% committed and conservative Christian, who is willing to die for his faith. That sounds like the exact opposite of how Nic Cage would live his life. I think that something is going to have to give somewhere, either in the Lalonde brothers' script, or in Nic Cage. I hope the latter, because the books have a message that the world needs to hear. For right now, I'm hoping that this is all just rumor, and it's not real, but if it is, I pray that God will bestow wisdom upon the Lalonde brothers, and help them to be a good and positive witness for Christ to these lost souls that they have cast in their movie.

Americans have much to be thankful for to God, yet we are a thankless bunch. In a recent popular 2016 film starring Tom Hanks (based on a true incident in 2009 over New York City) titled “Sully,” a commercial jetliner hits a flock of birds, and both engines are completely destroyed during takeoff. The pilots have only 35 seconds to make a critical decision of what to do. They can't make it to the airports. The jet's captain made the unprecedented bold decision to crash land the 150,000 pound commercial jet liner (loaded with 155 scared passengers) onto the icy Hudson River down below in New York. The Captain (Sully) did it! It was a man's man act of heroism! With no landing-gear, he safely landed the plane on the river. No one died! It was amazing!

Yet, sadly, at no time does the film, the captain, the co-pilot, their families, the media, nor any of the passengers, nor anyone involved, give any glory or thanks to God for sparing their lives. The film totally dishonors God by leaving Him out, failing to praise the Lord for His goodness. Without God's omnipotent hand that spared everyone's lives that fateful day in January of 2009, none of those 155 people aboard the jetliner would have lived to see another day. Shame on all of them! Woe unto the wicked! Well, I for one thank God and praise His blessed name for sparing the lives of those 155 people! I praise You Lord on their ungrateful behalf, for you are incredibly good, loving, longsuffering and “kind unto the unthankful and to the evil” (Luke 6:35b).

There are unsaved people who live above reproach, thinking they are pretty decent people. Such self-righteous persons look down upon and condemn born-again believers who have openly sinned. However, in eternity when God judges everyone, the seemingly good unsaved person will burn in Hell forever, while the openly sinful Christian will enjoy the blessings and splendor of Heaven for all eternity. Matthew 21:31b-32, “Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.” Please notice “WHY” the publicans (tax cheats) and harlots went into the Kingdom of God, but not the religious scribes and Pharisees, because they, “BELIEVED HIM”! They simply believed on the dear Savior, the Son of God, taking Him at His Word!

The only way to Heaven is through faith in the Good News (Gospel) of Christ crucified, buried and risen. Only by faith in what Christ has done to pay for our sins on the cross, can anyone be spared God's wrath to come (Romans 5:9). You had better get saved, and get your sins under the blood, or else you'll spend eternity paying for your own sins in the fires and torments of Hell with Margaret Sanger, Madalyn Murray O'Hair, Steve Jobs, Freddie Mercury, George Harrison, Gene Wilder, Stephen Hawking, Gene Roddenberry, Rod Serling and George Carlin! (All of those poor souls openly rejected the Son of God!) Your time is running out!

Realityland to liberal: race is NOT equal to or even remotely similar to sexual "orientation". For one thing, an interracial marriage is a HETEROSEXUAL union, which you leftist losers conveniently fail to mention. For another, only a liberal interlekshal can equate absolutely normal but instantly recognizable biological traits with an abnormal sexual preference that is totally undetectable unless the queer is a flaming fairy.

When strolling down the sidewalk, one not need to be Sherlock Holmes to detect a black person. However, deducing that a person is homosexual is impossible unless the queer is making a blatant public display of it. If queers are "persecuted" (e.g., told by a baker that he will not do a cake for a queer 'wedding'), it is because the queers have freely chosen to reveal their homosexuality.

Thought food time: homosexuals who feel that they must publicly "out" themselves are not brave or courageous or daring. They are immature, insecure brats who crave attention and require public approbation for their "orientation". The concepts of self-respect, self-confidence and self-control are alien to them. Their behavior is akin to children shouting, "Mommy, lookit me. Lookit me! MOMMY!" It matters not a whit to them what people think of their antics and behavior, as long as they are noticed.

There is always an almost irresistible urge to open a 55-gallon drum of whupass on them.

ANCIENT PORTAL TO THE DIVINE COSMOLOGY
The Lost Continent Of Lemuria

Lemuria is the lost land, the first continent of the Pacific. She is the exotic paradise of the East, the intoxicating, mystical land of magic. She is the Lost Continent of the Pacific, what others may refer to as Mu. Lemuria and Mu are one and the same.
The first beings that lived in Lemuria were the Lemurians, the first extraterrestrial galactic star beings to step foot on our beautiful blue, Earth Mother. They are the beings of pure love and light, the ascended masters of this universe. They carry with them a unique, cosmic signature, and the same spiritual purpose and mission as that of our living Earth Mother.
The Lemurian beings are the Earth Keepers, the protectors of Earth Mother’s land. They are the original, indigenous brown-colored people, who walked and lived upon the face of our Earth Mother for eons of time. They are the intuitives, the mystics, the healers. The kind, the generous, the peaceful, and the loving. They are the Original Shamans. Vibrating at the highest frequency, the Lemurians control the forces of Mu, walking on water, standing on fire, transporting themselves through the air and ether at any place, and at any time. Capable of shifting the atomic structures in the environment, the Lemurians are the magical star beings who have no limit. They are the sincere devotees of the Divine and her creations.

The Lemurians built their spiritual kingdom on Earth Mother, one that was abundant in all its form. They sustained peace and harmony on all levels, and no one on their premise went hungry, or homeless. All were cared for, and all were provided with the necessities to live a peaceful and happy life, one that is perfect and in divine order.
From the light to the dark, to the predators (aliens) and the Atlanteans, all wanted the intoxicating, magnificent Land of Mu. In her greatest beauty, splendor and wealth, and all that she had within her, Lemuria was one that everyone envied. Everyone claimed to destroy her.
Though the hospitality of Mu was her greatest strength, it was her willingness to serve and help others that allowed no boundaries for beings to co-exist. She was taken advantage of, and her strength became her greatest weakness. Yes, I speak of her as the Land of Mu, and her as her people. This is how Mu, the motherland, was originally referred to. She was the feminine.

Mu and her people were exploited to the core, fed with endless war, famine, ignorance, and lies. After being attacked time and time again, her beauty was lost. The people of Mu lost their self confidence, lost their magic, and lost their once exalted place in the cosmic village of high social status. They were no longer seen as the light and wisdom of the peaceful nature in which they belonged. Lemuria was unrecognizable, and almost everything was replaced with crudeness and cruelty. The descendants of Mu were kept in silence and abruptly lacked their very own identity.
The magical part of Lemuria left the surface land, and built their kingdom deep in the Pacific Ocean, along with all of their knowledge, power and magic. She is now submerged underwater. The untrue history of Mu was then fed to everyone, and her history became a totalitarian dogma force-fed to all of us, most especially to the very own children of Mu.

My Great Ascended Master, Shrii Shrii Anandamurti, calls Maharlika (Philippines) The Land of the Great.
Maharlika is the heart and center of Mu. In viewing the map of Maharlika, you will find her landmass scattered across more than 7,000 islands, all in small, broken pieces. If you look close enough, you will see that she is a puzzle, trying to fit herself back into a whole. Beneath her is a hidden secret that connects us back to the astral and spiritual realm, the place of Lemuria.

This post is very interesting to me, as I’ve had the same experience that others here, including Squire Western, have shared. Just last month, I had a 6:00 a.m. flight from Rochester, New York to Charlotte, North Carolina. While I waited at the gate, I saw two attractive young ladies dressed in pilot’s uniforms approach the counter. I was surprised at how young they seemed, and I could not take seriously the notion of them as pilots. I had seen female pilots before, but only as co-pilots, or otherwise teamed with men. As I was already anxious about the icy weather and wanted to get home, I felt relief when they turned away and headed toward another gate. I was filled with the sense of how silly it was to see these two, dressed like men with shirt and tie, pilot’s caps, lesser facsimiles of the real thing. I hearkened back to a flight long ago when I was 13, and a pilot named Captain Doubleday, whose voice came over the intercom: stern, masculine, an air of experience, yet friendly; a serious man in a serious line of work. This was comforting to a young boy who admired that captain to the point of remembering his name to this day.
When I boarded the plane about 45 minutes later, my concern renewed as I saw the two girls in the cockpit of my plane. It was a cold morning that required a de-icing treatment to the plane, and when the “captain” announced our take-off delay in her soft, elvish, girlish voice, I felt a wave of panic. Although I had awakened very early that morning with only around three hours of sleep due to a late company “Holiday” party (the holiday of course being CHRISTMAS), I did not sleep a wink during my two-hour plus flight back to Charlotte. I constantly worried, “What if there’s an emergency? How will these girls respond? Will they be able to pull a Sully Sullenberger move with his stern, calm, decisive resolve and save us if necessary? Where did they get their training? Why do both pilots have to be women? What the heck is going on here?!?” And how silly it seemed again after take-off, when the co-pilot’s voice came on in affected male “pilot” tones and inflection to make the typical announcements of flight time, weather, “enjoy the flight,” etc. I was petrified until the plane landed and my feet were on the ground.

Did they fly the plane? Yes. Did we make it in one piece? Yes. But as others have articulated, it’s not about that. It’s about an intangible sense that this just isn’t right. And among all the other concerns I have as a single father in this degenerating country, I continue to notice the upside-down world my boys will grow up in. Aging men in their fifties or obvious homosexuals are now my “flight attendant,” not stewardess, providing no genuine feminine care and comfort to weary travelers, and sexy little girls are my “captain” and co-pilot. Let me off this ride.

(Submitter note: got this comment just recently and one of my remarks led to me looking on in pure skepticism)

drivanmoffitt: I could tell, yeah, consumers have a right to have a quality product but the same can't be said of the current direction Star Wars is going as the fanbase is relatively split on this, half likes the direction Star Wars is going and the other half don't, its' a toss up (Submitter note: made in December 13th of 2019)

chinook-the-orca: Well THAT comment didn't age well.

drivanmoffitt: Hits not that old also how has it not aged well? (submitter note: DID NOT check the date of this comment nor proof read)

chinook-the-orca: So far as I can tell: there's almost nobody who liked the Ruse of Soy-Woker:
- People like me who have hated all of Disney-wars so far hated it because it's more of the same witha ll the same problems as before.
- People who told us how we were "literal Nazis" for not liking Disney-wars hate it because it "tries to please fans"
- What few "It's Star Wars and I like it" fans were left don't particularly like it because it ruins Anakin and Luke's character arcs in service of Rey the Maryiest Sue in the universe
- The weird Rey-lo shipper cult who were about the only people who liked THAT weird romance angle hate it because their emo boy band crush died
- People who loved The Last Jedi (those strange alien lifeforms) HATE ROS because it walks back some of RIan Johnson's more agregious brain-farts
- And most of the critics hate it for the same reason: that it doesn't piss on the fans as much as TLJ and they spent 2 years bending over backwards to tell us all how great it was and how brilliant they were for "getting" it.

In short: a movie written by a talent-less hack and his corporate oversight committee successfully made a film for nobody.

drivanmoffitt: right... I honestly don't take you serious when you use the term 'soy-woker', at all, that's the sort of crap that the Alt-Right uses along with their bullshit meme of 'go woke go broke'

chinook-the-orca: And I'm entirely sick of idiots diving behind the "you're Alt-right!" defense whenever I level any criticism at all at Disney-wars; the very term is so over-applied as to be meaningless... for the record; I'm left of center and have been my entire life. So shove it up your backside.

Ohhhhh noooooo! Some rando on the internet doesn't take me seriously! Where will I get my NOTHING!

"Get woke go broke" is a truism; because NOBODY likes being preached at in their entertainment, deal with it.

Literally, mad scientists are now creating new species in their laboratories, creatures that are part human and part whatever the scientist fancies to use. The Devil's hands have been busy! In recent years mad scientists have successfully genetically mixed the DNA of scorpions with cabbage, silk moths with potatoes, fish with tomatoes, glowing jelly fish with all sorts of mammals, cows with humans, goats with spiders, and God and Satan only know what else! Man is destined for self-destruction.

In the National Geographic article, one researcher has already tried to give mice human brains. The intended goal according to that scientist, who says he's “not a mad scientist,” is to study the human brain function. As actor Sam Neill (who plays Dr. Alan Grant) says in the Jurassic Park trilogy movie series, in part two, “Some of the worst things imaginable have been done with the best intentions.” Tampering with genetics is one of the worst ideas in the history of bad ideas.

God knew what He was doing when He created the universe. Nothing is by chance or by accident. In a 2013 presentation titled, “How The Earth Was Made” by Walt Disney's H2 (History Channel), the narrator (Dirty Jobs star, Mike Rowe) refers to the earth's creation as an “Accidental Aftermath” and a “Cosmic Glitch.” In sharp contrast, the inspired Holy Bible says in Genesis 1:31, “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” God saw that His creation was “VERY GOOD.” There are no coincidence or accidents with God. Yet, as insane as it may seem, mad scientists think they can IMPROVE on God's creation. This is because they are Godless scientists and do not accept the Holy Bible. Judgment day is coming for all mankind (Hebrews 9:27).

Visions of all manner of freakish creatures come to mind from various films; such as, Spiderman; and H.G. Wells novel, The Island of Dr. Moreau; Jurassic Park; The Thing; and Frankenstein. Chimeras themselves are defined as a Greek mythological creatures. The Egyptian Sphinx (half man and half lion) is an example of a type of Chimera. The Greek mythological character, Medusa, part woman and part snake, was a Chimera. Until modern science, Chimeras were only a thing of the wild human imagination and tales of folklore. Today, Chimeras are a frightening reality. A startling 150 such Chimeras were produced in European labs in recent years, shocking the world.

STAR WARS II

Soon after George Lucas came out with STAR WARS, Episode IV back in 1977, he was quoted as saying, "Yes, thru STAR WARS, I am teaching a religion, my beliefs in Buddhism and Eastern Mysticism."

STAR WARS goes far beyond mainstream Buddhism and harmless Mysticism,

The Theology of STAR WARS is The Crux of Esoteric Buddhism. This is the purest form of Satanism and Luciferism on planet earth and the heart and soul of Nazism as well.

THE SWASTICA IS THE ANCIENT BUDDHIC SYMBOL FOR GOODNESS. HITLER, A SELF CONFESSED SATAN WORSHIPER, USED THIS SYMBOL FOR THE HOLOCAUST, HIS FAILED ATTEMPT TO BRING ABOUT THIS NEW AGE OF LUCIFER.

Thru the six, STAR WAR movies (from 1977 to 2006 AD). The world is being taught The Coming Religion of Antichrist. When The Beast is revealed, he will simply "fill in the blanks".

RETURN OF THE JEDI

STAR WARS: "The Force is a mystical energy field that unifies all things, binds all things, flows thru all things".

ANTICHRIST (as The World Teacher, The Jedi "Master of Masters) "GOD is The Force in all things, this energy field creates all things, unifies all things, binds all things, flows thru all things".

Next, Antichrist, The Jedi Messiah, will teach that Reincarnation is the truth of life and death. This is a repeat of The Lie The Serpent (Satan) told Eve in The Garden of Eden

"YOU SHALL NOT DIE"
( REINCARNATION )

"YOU SHALL BE AS GODS"
( EVOLUTION OF THE SOUL )

NO CHRISTIAN HELL
NO JUDGMENT

HEAVEN FOR ALL

THIS TEACHING SETS THE STAGE FOR
A SECOND HOLOCAUST ON A
GLOBAL SCALE

STAR WARS, quoting Yoda, "Fear is The Path of The Dark Side. Fear brings anger, hatred, greed and much human suffering. Beware the dark side."

ANTICHRIST (World Teacher) "Christianity is the path of the dark side. Christianity breeds Fear as it teaches of Original Sin, of Judgment and Hell."

"This Fear brings division and hatred, leading to war and human suffering."

But wait. If Christianity is The Path of Fear, of the Dark Side, then what is the path of light, of the good side of the force?

STAR WARS EPISODE 666
THE BLOODBATH BEGINS

ANTICHRIST (quoting from the United Nations world prayer, The "Great Invocation" of Lucifer),

"WHEN WE SEAL THE DOOR
WHERE EVIL DWELLS, THEN
LIGHT AND LOVE SHALL
FILL THE EARTH."

ANTICHRIST will teach that when The World, "Unites as One" to destroy The Lord of The Darkside (GOD OF THE BIBLE) and all of His Evil Followers (Christians) then Love & Light will fill the earth, and we will save the world from Nuclear War.

According to The Book of Revelation, Antichrist will wage His STAR WARS against Christians for 3.5 years, 40 and 2 months, 1260 days, "And the Beast shall wage war with the saints and overcome them for 40 & 2 months".

Then on Day 1260, The Trumpet
Will Sound, For the Lord shall
descend from heaven with the
Shout of The Archangel and The
Dead in Christ shall rise first
and those who are alive and remain
will be caught-up together with
Them to meet the Lord in the air
(1 THES:4:16 = 1 COR:15:52)

The Resurrection happens and ALL Christians, alive and dead are caught-up into heaven. THIS IS THE SECOND RAPTURE EVENT THAT HAPPENS DURING THE TRIBULATION. (2 Thes:2:3-4).

THEN GOD SHALL POUR OUT HIS WRATH UPON A WORLD THAT WILL HAVE INVOKED AND WORSHIPED SATAN IN THEIR HEARTS AND WHOSE HANDS ARE STAINED WITH THE BLOOD OF THE SAINTS!

The Good News is that Before Antichrist is revealed as The Jedi "CHRIST" of the bright side of THE FORCE

JESUS WILL TAKE TO HEAVEN HIS TRUE FOLLOWERS, HIS FAITHFUL REMNANT, IN THE FIRST OF TWO RAPTURES. (MATT:24:40 = REV:3:10)

WE CAN ESCAPE 666, THIS COMING BLOODBATH, WHEN SATAN CONTINUES HIS LOST STAR WARS UPON EARTH, HIS FINAL REBELLION AGAINST THE GOD MOST HIGH.

"Prophecies can be wrong."

The Book of Revelation reveals TWO RAPTURES to come and not as as commonly taught. According to The Bible, JESUS is coming for His Faithful Remnant, His true Followers (Rev:3:10), NOT for a Church filled with falsehood and hypocrites,

Not for "Christians" who love and follow The LIES of The Baptists and the "Once Saved Always Saved" Churches, The twisted, WISH-CRAFT of Faith Prosperity Ministries or those who trust a Catholic Priest to absolve their sins.

The "Great Invocation" was first published by The United Nations in 1982. It is the Invocation of Lucifer" as found in the Luciferic writings of Alice Bailey, Lucius Publications. They await the coming of the 5th Buddha, MAITREYA, who will lead the world to worship his father, LUCIFER, and lead A Global War against all who refuse.

I first revealed The STAR WARS connection with the Teachings of Antichrist (666) in my 1986 banned (by the Christian Elite) Book, THE ANSWER- TWO RAPTURES.

Uniqueness

Half of my book, The Uniqueness of Western Civilization, is about discrediting the multicultural claim that, as late as the mid 1700s, the West was no more advanced than the major civilizations of Asia, or China in particular, and that only a set of fortuitous circumstances gave the West a chance to industrialize first. The West did not "stumble" accidentally into the New World, I argued, and it was not "easy access" to the resources of the Americas, enslavement of blacks, or availability of cheap coal in Britain, that made possible Britain's take-off.

Columbus voyages were one among many other European explorations, starting with the organized expeditions of the Portuguese around Africa into the Indian Ocean in the 1400s. During the 1500s and 1600s, thousands of Europeans set about discovering and mapping the whole world for the first time in human history. While the acquisition of resources from the Americas, and the colonial trade did affect the timing, magnitude, and rate of industrial growth, this revolution occurred first in Britain because of this nation's freer markets, property rights, superior applications of modern science to industry, representative institutions, and a dynamic middle classes imbued with a Protestant ethic. Many other European nations, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Nordic countries, would soon industrialize in the 1800s, with next to no colonies. Overall the home market and the intra-European trade were far more significant than the colonial trade.

What I did new in Uniqueness was to argue that the rise of the West can't be reduced to the industrial revolution and even the preceding Galilean-Newtonian revolution. The West has always stood apart from the Rest as a singularly different civilization since prehistoric times. The history of the West is filled with continuous "births," "origins," "creations," "transitions," "renaissances," and "revolutions". We can start with ancient Greece and the "world's first scientific thought," the "invention of deductive reasoning," the "birth of citizenship politics," the "emergence of historical consciousness" and "the discovery of the mind". But then we have to explain what made Greece so different. The current, widely accepted explanation for Greek uniqueness, is question-begging. It says that the Greeks developed a unique institution, the polis, or city state, which encouraged individualism and reasoned discourse. Rather than having to submit to a priestly or government hierarchy, the citizens of these city-states were free to participate in the affairs of their city as well as enjoy a cultural atmosphere which encouraged individuals to contest for excellence.

But why the emergence of the polis and the higher individualism of the Greeks in the first place? Some have pointed to the geographical distinctiveness of Greece, its mountainous ecology, which compartmentalised the land into separate valleys, and encouraged the rise of small independent city-states. The geographic uniqueness of Europe generally is always part of the explanation. There is no question that the greater environmental diversity of Europe, its multiple rivers and links to a wider variety of seas, coupled with the fact that its mountains, plains, and valleys are all "of limited extent," and that no great river or plain dominates the ecology, and that farmers can rely on rainfall rather than on centrally controlled irrigation systems based on one large river, encouraged less centralized political authorities.

But rather than viewing geography as the active historical agent, the way Jared Diamond and others do, I drew on Hegel to emphasize the deep effect this environment had on the "type and character" of European peoples. The peoples of the world belong to the same species, but their state of being — their mental vision, temperament, and character — is deeply influenced by their place of habitation in the earth. I also went back in time to the prehistorical Indo-Europeans to argue that before the polis in Greece was established around the eight century BC, there were already aristocratic characters unwilling to submit to despotic rule. The Mycenaean civilization (1900-1200 BC) was uniquely aristocratic in the sense that "some men," not just the king, were free to deliberate over major issues affecting the group, as well as free to strive for personal recognition. The material origins of this aristocratic individualist ethos are to be found in the unique pastoral lifestyle of the Indo-Europeans who evolved out of the geographical area known as the "Pontic steppes". They were the riders of horses, the inventors of chariots and co-inventors of wheeled wagons, as well as the most efficient users of the "secondary products" of domestic animals (dairy products, textiles, harnessing), which gave them a more robust physical anthropology and the most dynamic way of life in their time.

I used the philosophical insights of four German thinkers, Spengler, Weber, Hegel, and Nietzsche — their writings about the "infinite drive," "the irresistible trust" of the Occident, the "energetic, imperativistic, and dynamic soul of the West," the "rational restlessness" of Europeans, the "powerful physicality [of aristocrats]...effervescent good health... [love of] adventure, hunting, dancing, jousting and everything that contains strong, free, happy action" — to argue that only European man has exhibited an intense desire to subject the world to its own ends, and that it is mainly this self who has been unable to feel "at home" in the world until it got rid "of the semblance of being burdened with something alien" (Hegel's words).

Why has the European mind shown less reluctance to accept "the ineffable mystery of the world"? Why have Europeans been less willing to accept a social order based on laws and norms which have not been subjected to free reflection? Drawing on Kojeve I argued the ultimate origins of Western uniqueness are to be found in the reality that only Western man became "truly" self-conscious because only this man created — in the environment of the Pontic steppes — a society in which the struggle to become a man involved a contest "for something that does not exist really," that is, a contest solely for the sake of being recognized by another human being as a man exhibiting aristocratic excellence against the biological fear of death and against the fear of rebelling against the norms mandated by mysterious/despotic gods and rulers.

In all cultures men have struggled for manhood and recognition by other men but only among the aristocratic culture of Indo-Europeans do we find an incessant contest to validate one's aristocratic status among one's peers, for these nomadic, horse-riding warriors were not subservient to any ruler but were possessed by an attitude of "being-for-self" or self-assertiveness (rather than an attitude of "being-for-another" or deference towards a fearful god or despotic ruler). This contest had a profound effect on the constitution of the human personality, leading to the discovery of a unified self. This discovery was not, in the first instance, an intellectual affair, as bookish academics prefer to think; it was an intensively passionate drive for masculine identity in the pursuit of the highest form of recognition, aristocratic status, for the sake of the highest ideals, honor, courage, immortal glory.

1. When a Christian is under an assault of witchcraft and curses, he becomes increasingly disoriented or confused; he might even become clumsy. Satan wants to cloud his vision, thus stopping him from reaching his destiny in God. Thus, the individual under attack cannot connect with his spiritual vision; his motivation is either gone or lacking.

2. When one is targeted by curses, he will feel emotionally drained or debilitated. Those who have been the object of spiritual curses will carry a darkness, a cloud, in their countenance. The back of their neck is tight; a band of oppression around their head manifests as a headache. The person might assume he is sick, but it is not the flu. It is witchcraft.

3. Often, the curses released from witchcraft will arouse a number of inordinate fears which will plague the mind. The theater of the individual's imagination will be targeted: At center stage, grotesque images will flash. The individual will be further drained by lack of deep or restful sleep.

4. When curses are aimed at a congregation, inter-church relationships will experience constant problems, distracting the body of Christ from its primary focus and calling. Irritation levels will be high; patience will be low.

People will be more likely to complain about one another. Gossip and backbiting will increase proportionately. Rebellion against church leaders will seem justified and the temptation to withdraw from fellowship will be strong.

Vincent Reynouard #conspiracy codoh.com

[Extracted from the article "Persecution in France for "The Waffen-SS: Innocent at Oradour""]

On June 9, 2004, the appeal court in Limoges sentenced me to two years in prison (whereof 18 months on probation) and a fine of 3000 Euro for the crime of "approving a war crime." It also declared the confiscation of parts of my archive, which was seized in 2001, to be lawful. The reason for this sentence was my research into the SS "massacre" in the French village of Oradour 60 years ago.

It all began in 1989, when I spoke with a friend about the Waffen-SS and he told me that the official history of "the Oradour massacre" was being questioned by a number of people. At that point I still believed – as almost all French do – in the official historical version. I believed, that members of the Waffen-SS on June 10, 1944, had destroyed the village of Oradour and annihilated its inhabitants. I also believed that they had burned several hundreds of women and children alive in the local church.

In the case of Oradour we are not dealing with a few dozen dead, but with the cold-blooded murder of 642 people, whereof about 500 defenseless women, children, and infants. Faced with such a dire allegation and harboring doubts about it, it is completely reasonable if one visits the site of the crime in order to observe with one" s own eyes that which is held as fact.

I am not a historian. My background is that of a chemical engineer and a teacher of natural science. Therefore I have not studied Oradour with the approach normally taken. It is a fact that French writers when dealing with the Waffen-SS first explicate on the German theories of total war, then talk of "the crimes of the SS" in Russia, Czechoslovakia, and elsewhere; then follows the German occupation of France and the general activities of the Waffen-SS in their fight against the Resistance. The Oradour massacre is dealt with only after that. For these tendentious writers the guilt of the Waffen-SS is self-evident. This is why since 1947 the officially disseminated version is the only one to be heard.

[...]

The most likely conjecture is that a partisan ammunition depot was located in the church, and that on June 10 this depot exploded with tragic consequences. The reasons for this remained to be clarified. This theory of course contradicts the official version, which portrays Oradour as a peace loving village located in a region completely free of partisans. The advocates of the official theory do not want people to think consider seriously the factual causes behind the destruction of the church. Why would the Resistance not have used a large village by the side of the main transport routes for their purposes? After all, we know of several cases from France and Belgium in which church buildings were used by partisans as hiding places for large amounts of ammunition.

[...]

The French have always rebutted this German version with their claim of peaceful village. This is a poor attempt to portray themselves as innocent or at least to justify themselves. But let us assume for a moment, that the Waffen-SS really acted "by evil habit" as they are alleged to have done. If they had sought to terrorize and demoralize the population, the Waffen-SS would scarcely have looked for excuses. Rather they would have declared with demonical pride, that they were not to be made fools of. In this case there would have been not one Oradour, but ten, twenty, fifty.

[...]

The most probable scenario to me looks like this: While the Waffen-SS searched through the village, some partisans hid themselves in the church, where weapons and ammunition was hidden since previously. When the women and children were brought to the church, the hidden partisans were discovered. The German soldiers sought to capture them. It came to fisticuffs and finally shots were fired. These shots may have caused the ammunition to explode. Did all women and children inside the church die as a result of the catastrophe? This does not seem plausible, since parts of the church were not destroyed, and since there are objects made of wood and textile left intact. The people standing in the vicinity of these objects must thus also have survived the drama, and not only the already mentioned false witness Mrs. Rouffanche

Rick Santorum & James Dobson #fundie rightwingwatch.org

Santorum: Can you play this all out, you do it in the trilogy here, can you play this all out, you end up with the godlessness and that’s really what we’re seeing this administration now doing, something that is historic in America. I have never seen anything that is so insidious as the government regulations and the court cases that this administration is bringing, they are overtly hostile to people of faith.

Dobson: You’re absolutely right about that and I should’ve mentioned that my co-author in this book is Kurt Bruner who was the vice president of Focus on the Family for many years and he’s a young, brilliant writer and he and I are working together on this. As we pointed out one of the implications of these changes demographically is a changing view of morality. Views of infanticide will change and of suicide and of euthanasia and of abortion, all those things will change because as the population struggles to bring children into the world then there will be, we predict or project, that as there are abortion clinics all over the country, and we’ve got one two blocks from my house which I have to drive by every day, there will also be euthanasia clinics where people can do ‘the loving thing.’

…

Dobson: I don’t want to be pessimistic about everything and I do see a lot of pessimism but what I’m seeing now is disturbing. I’ve never seen a time when there was less common sense in government than appears to be there now. This is why, I don’t want to be self-serving to you or serving to you, but I supported you for president because you were the only person that had the guts to talk about the family and to talk about its implications and why it was important and why the government had to take a stand for families and make it possible for them to survive. Man I wish you had an opportunity to continue to do that and that’s why I joined you today.

DUNE - GIBRALTAR
The Fremen & THE WAY*

by JAH

*The [Weirding] Way

The film DUNE (not the book) which is supposedly science-fiction, and visually is portrayed as such in the film, is, in reality, a TRUE story that is unfolding now and it is about GIBRALTAR - Gebal Tariq - The Rock of "The Night-Visitant" (in Arabic).
The basic plot of the film is straight out of the pages containing the Prophecies, in the Bible Old Testament Book of the Prophet Isaiah; and also those from the New Testament Books of John and Revelation/Apocalypse Prophecies and also from parts of the Holy Koran.

Paul, the human, (inside of whom is the spirit-Being - THE Sleeper - Christ) was told (whilst on Caladan - Caledonia - Britain) that change is good for a person, it allows them to grow and without change something inside of us [all] sleeps (the soul or Being part of the human+Being) and it seldom awakens (Mark ch. 13 v 36).

"The 'Sleeper' must awaken" (YOU must be born again as your spirit-Being and wake-up to the fact that you are NOT really "only human") or you will never "SEE" (with your awakened spiritual eye-sight) the Kingdom of God, and YOU will NOT enter into it.

Paul, whilst being tested, says, "I must overcome my fear (just like YODA tells Luke he must do, in 'Starwars' and YODA also says, "Luminous-Beings are we, NOT this crude matter," prodding Luke's crude human body - Read my Starwars Booklet). Fear is the mind-killer, it is the little-death that leads to total obliteration. I must face my fear and let it 'Pass-over' me. I must not fear!"

Fear is Satanically-inspired and is irrefutable evidence of a lack of Faith (the word Faith is not the name for Religions, it means "Trust in God"). The more fear, the less Faith; the more Faith, the less fear.

Dune - the desert planet, is, in reality, planet Earth, which is a spiritual desert where not one drop of spiritual rain has fallen during the time of The Testimony of the Two Witnesses (Read my Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse and The Two Witnesses Booklet) that is 1260 days (Prophetic years) in Revelation chapter 11 verse 3.

Dune - Desert Planet - No precipitation (rain). Not one drop of rain falls on the planet - Revelation chapter 11 v 6

11:6 These (The Two Witnesses) have power to shut heaven, that it "rain" (spiritually) not in the days of their Prophecy: and have power over "waters".........

Paul puts on a "Still-suit", to protect himself from the desert, which has two meanings. The first meaning of Still-suit is that of learning to be calm in the face of an ocean of evil (like the Dune-Sea in Starwars and Luke is told by YODA that when he is at peace, calm, then he will know the good-side from the bad) and thereby be able to hear the "still" small telepathic-voice of God, within his mind, for his daily-guidance. The second meaning is more closely demonstrated in the film as the suits distill water to keep them alive and symbolically represent the Fremen-wearers of the suits distilling all information, to take out the impurity and leave them with the TRUTH, which is what they need and can give them Life [eternal].

Muad'Dib says, "The time will come when all (who are a part of the system - like the [collar and] Tie-fighters in Starwars) will turn against us and seek our lives. We must reach the safety of [the] Rock." Inside which there are wind-traps and reservoirs containing millions of decalitres of drinking-water. Exactly as there are blast-traps at the entrances and reservoirs inside The Rock of Gibraltar.

Isaiah chapter 33 verse 16 "He shall dwell on high: his place of defence [SHALL BE] the Fortress of Rock: bread shall be given him; his waters [shall be] sure."

Muad'Dib, in order to lead the Fremen, has to drink The Water of Life, which is poisonous to humans - (symbolising crucifixion, or death, of the "Self"ish human-nature of the body) and thereby conquer death; and be able to guarantee Life Eternal to those who help and fight, for him and God, against Satan and his evil empire.

Yea, though a man were "dead", if he believes ME, yet shall he Live. If he believes my words (NOT other people's words ABOUT me but MY words) and DOES them, he will Live.

Paul then overcomes; conquers; controls and rides on the back of the worms (death) so that they do not attack his disciples (JEDIs).

He then leads the Fremen, and the worms (death) help his disciples to overcome, defeat and destroy the evil empire ruled by Emperor Saddam (who is merely the "glove-puppet" (read my "The Invasion of Kuwait in Prophecy" Booklet) of the REAL Emperor - Satan - like in Starwars) and all of its evil systems of government.

The Guild who are above the human-emperor Saddam and who are the people that really run the world, from behind the scenes (hidden from view), for their master Satan, are, in real life, known as "The Hidden Hand" and they, and their ancestors before them, have been running this world for Satan, for thousands of years.

The Hidden Hand are a small group of extremely (and I do mean in the extreme) rich people who say that they are Jews but are not, they are the synagogue [church] of Satan, as Christ states in Revelation chapter 2 verse 9 and it was they who engineered the crucifixion, for Satan, to try to defeat Christ and retain their obscene wealth, and, in so doing, brought about, the fulfillment of all of the Prophecies about Christ that related to THAT event and time, and which had to be fulfilled, to PROVE Christ's TRUE identity, etc.

See this Blue Ball in Space, this speck in nothingness for miles and miles, from the Sun it cannot even be seen.

Yes here on this Place of Spirit, Earth, Wind, and Fire. People claim a land is more holy then any other land.

Sand and Rocks are Holy here compared to there. The World has Dragon Lines that flow in it’s rocks and sand, they alone boost energy and consciousness. This is what all the ancient sites are built on.

There is no place on this planet more sacred then any other! It’s Sentient Earth, it doesn’t hold one part of it’s self more sacred then any other place.

The thinking that this area is more sacred then that area is the psychology that creates war, creates violence. It’s same Mind Warp that makes millions of Sheep Worship Cube of Saturn called Mecca(the Black Stone)

Israel will be the Demon that shall ever trouble Trump, whispering in his ear to do this and that. Using Religion to sway him to there means.

They told me if I changed my hair they would love me. All that did was add 20$ a week to my expenses.

They told me if I dressed well I’d be irresistible. All that did was make me broke.

They told me if I was confident they would fall for me. All that did was make me arrogant.

They told me if I acted tough they’d respect me. All that did was make me soft on the inside.

They told me to be myself. All that did was reveal my true failure.

Honestly no reason to try anymore.

(Belis_Atreides)
But have you tried being vulnerable? Because all that did for me was get me mocked and taken advantage of.

How comes? This is against all I thought to have learnt.

Edit: Sorry for the dumb question. I mistranslated it at first.

I was never raised to be anything other than progressive and respectful toward women, it has not advanced me an inch with gaining their interest for relationships. However, I'm willing to accept I was possibly acting in the Nice GuyTM way in the beginning, because waaaaay back then I didn't know better. But after that course correction, it still didn't matter.

I noticed a trend with most women, from most walks of life: they want MEN

Not just in the CHad sense of the world, though not discounting that importance - they want men who are traditionally masculine. Although, they rarely came out and admitted it. Among their friends and people who they wish to curry favor with, they'll say what many here always say - and then proceed to get involved with traditional rugged and masculine men that continually hurt them.

Also, whenever they complain about men not meeting standards, like men who've approached them in the past - and even some of these bad boys - they'll attack their masculinity when they show vulnerability. "I don't want to be their mommy" is a phrase I've heard frequently. "I don't want to be their shoulder to cry on all the time"

A popular belief in red pill communities is about how men need to be a solid rock, or break wall in a woman's tumultuous sea of emotions. She wants to crash into it and know for certain it's there for support. Kinda cringe sounding, but I've seen more than enough women complain when this isn't the case.

(BraisedBuster)
Women do not care for emotional connection that exposes weakness. What are Chad features, height, facial structure, dick size? Testosterone. Masculinity. Emotional vulnerability does not correlate.

(giantillusion)
Girls honestly believe men don't show feelings because they don't have them. I already had multiple girls telling me and being shocked when I told them that's wrong

(KingBowser24)
I've gotten to the point where I can talk to girls without creeping them out or being ghosted. But, I can never make it to boyfriend.

-Some girls call me a dick for acting confident and tough

-Others think im too soft when i show emotion.

Ive had girls tell me both of these things- "Show more emotion" and "Act a little manlier"

like wtf guys lmao

It’s almost like women are multiple people with idiosyncratic tastes and there’s no perfect combo that pleases them all.

It's almost like there are combos which please them all belonging to the men perceived as the most attractive in our culture, and combos which don't like OP's who is still an incel for that reason. Whatever each woman has said, none of them would show romantic interest.

(KosmicMalware)
Cause normie advice is just that. Normie advice. Once you try all of it you realise you're one of us and not a normie. It would work for some awkward 5/10 unkempt kid. Not us.

Shitty thing about this, is unlike work or some regular task, you can't just put in X amount of effort and self-improvement to succeed. Your success is entirely dependant on a secondary party somehow wanting you over all the millions of other options available.

(Salusa-Secundus)

With all of these, you did them for others, not for yourself... That's the issue. When you do things for yourself, others will admire you.

Lmao, people say "fake it till you make it" all the time. There a no winning with you people. None at all.

People aren't fucking psychic.

That's why you need to figure out for yourself how to play the game. Most people are insecure, if you get rid of that you are already so many steps ahead of the rest. Then you figure out what YOU want and how YOU get it, instead of making twists and turns in order to get someone to do something for you or 'grant' you something like love or whatever. It's all a big fucking joke, realise it and rise above

Edit: spelling

"Most people are insecure" works for them, doesn't it?

How is angry AND insecure working for u lmao

Lots of people are both too. Look at people getting worked up over politics and religion.

What isn't working out for me is my face.

(Liptusg)
Incels want girlfriends for themselves. Are incels admired yet?

The object of desire needs a specific approach for its harness. Subtlety, self-improvement and self-respect is a miss amongst incels.

What if I don't want subtlety, your idea of self-improvement and self-respect for myself? I thought we aren't supposed to do things for others? And I also thought that women aren't a hivemind?

I know plenty of women with no subtlety, self-improvement or self-respect who have no trouble attracting male partners.

What others attract or not, is not your game. Improve your own game.. If you don't want to self-improve or respect your self, then ruin is your own.

Do you think you're Master Yoda or something? Most of your history consists of one-liners, I don't think you'd be the first person anyone should attempt a logical discourse with.

Improve your own game

My own game is just as I want to be. And you said I shouldn't do things for others.

If you don't want to self-improve

I'm feeling fine as it is except for the absence of a romantic interest.

or respect your self

I respect myself, maybe others don't, but you said we shouldn't be someone else for the sake of others. Stay on track my friend.

[=Authors Note: For the sake of trimming, some of the Bible verses in the original page have been removed=]

From the website of ‘johnshore.com’

These were published and dated December 16, 2010. I have only recently become aware of this ‘movement’ via Facebook. (One never knows what one will find there.) These are referred to as the “Sixteen Tenets of ‘unfundamentalist Christians’ , known also or previously known as ‘ThruWay Christians’. Being the old-fashioned, hard-nosed Bible thumper that I am, I disagree with some facets of this and the conclusions of the entirety.

Of course I have reasons and those reasons are published below. Just for convenience, I numbered the statements, replacing what appeared in my copy as a paragraph ‘dot’.

Just for the record, as the article was dated December 16, 2010, it is entirely possible Mr. Shore has completely changed his mind and recanted this whole document. On the other hand, I just checked Mr. Shore’s last blog entry and he’s still pitching the “UnFund” theme.

Caution: If the reader is not a Christian believer, much of this discussion will seem pointless. Feel free to read on, but if you’re confused, don’t worry, it happens to lots of folks.

Here beings the tenets:

1. Jesus Christ was God incarnate. He performed miracles; as a means of providing for the irrevocable reconciliation of humankind to God he sacrificed himself on the cross; he rose from the dead; he left behind for the benefit of all people the totality of himself in the form of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

So far, I’m in agreement. Jesus is God incarnate; the ‘Son’ who is God Himself. Jesus was executed and killed (no alternatives) on a Roman cross under Roman law. Jesus’ death was the final sacrifice needed to atone for the sin of all people who appeal to Him for forgiveness. Jesus rose from the dead on the third day showing Himself to be God and giving a promise to all of an Eternal life in Heaven with Him. He sent the Third Person of the Godhead, the ‘Holy Spirit’ to believers after His ascension.

2. Christ and Christianity are meant to be understood, appreciated, and experienced as galvanizing inspirations for living a life of love, compassion, fairness, peace, and humility. Period.

Now we’re disagreeing. The primary purpose and function of Christianity is to repair the breach between God and mankind due to mankind’s rebellion and disobedience. Being forgiven by Jesus and redeemed by His sacrifice, mankind can have a direct and proper relationship with God. The qualities of love, compassion, fairness, peace and humility are by-products of that proper relationship, not the primary aim.

Am I splitting hairs here? Not as much as one might think; the matter becomes clearer as we proceed.

3. The Bible is a collection of a great many separate documents written by different people in different languages over thousands of years. Properly understanding both the letter and spirit of the Bible necessarily entails taking into account the historical and cultural contexts that so greatly inform so much of its text. The size, density, history and complexity of the Bible render unfeasible the idea that not one of its words reflects more man’s will than God’s. The spirit of God is inerrant; people—even those impassioned by the conviction that God is speaking directly to or through them—are not.

The one starts out well and descends into heresy. The Bible was written over a period of approximately 1500 years. The Books of Moses, the Torah – sometimes Pentateuch, was written in the period between the Exodus from Egypt, around 1400 B. C. to the time of the Babylonian Captivity, around 600 to 530 B. C. (give or take a decade or so.) The book of Revelation, written by John the Apostle was written around 90 A. D. The rest was written somewhere in between, with the possible exception of Job. Job was one of the earliest sections written and may predate Moses. The Bible was assuredly written by at least forty different authors. (For instance, the books of Judges, Kings and Chronicles were written over periods of time and one author could not have written them all; they require accounts from events several hundred years apart. The Torah was more than likely written by a number of scribes with Moses or a later, Babylonian scholar as ‘editor’ and having final input. Genesis is obviously based on oral traditions of the Israelite nation.) The books reflect social conventions and cultural coloring of the times involved.

However, it is the message of Almighty God to humanity. No matter how much a human can foul up, the integrity of the message is based on God’s ability to ensure His message is properly passed on. No human can foul up or outright lie good enough to defeat God’s purpose. So as much as mankind wrote the words on paper (papyrus or whatever), the ‘Word’ (Greek ‘logos’, meaning idea, identity or concept) is that of God. As such, it is inerrant in message.

The idea of the Bible being ‘written by man and therefore possibly distorted’ is an old heresy. It was argued about in the earliest councils trying to settle on the ‘Bible’ and is the basis for several cults who claim to be Christian, but rely on teachings of extra Biblical origin. The heresy also finds much favor among those who wish to discredit any one particular facet of Christian doctrine. Under any version, the idea the Bible isn’t correct means either God really doesn’t care about the message or God is incapable of protecting His own plan. Christians cannot in good faith (no pun intended) accept either alternative.

4. Anyone seeking to mix church and state has failed to understand the nature and proper role of either. Belief that all people are created equal and are deserving of equal protection under the law is foundational to all modern democratic nations. To incorporate the inherently exclusionary imperatives of a particular religion into the determinedly inclusive system of democracy would be to undermine the very spirit of democracy by pushing it toward a theocracy.

This is a pretty silly statement and is highly ignorant of history. The ‘foundational’ belief of people being created equal and deserving equal protection under law is uniquely derived from the Judeo-Christian tradition. It is not found in Islam, Confucianism, Buddhism, Hinduism or any of the other ‘religions’ of the world. It is Christianity that fostered Democracy, not Democracy that fostered Christianity.

Additionally, it was Christian believers and supporters who founded the United States as a nation with no state religion. The United States was not founded as a ‘Christian nation’, but was indeed begun as a ‘nation of Christians’. To pretend otherwise is to ignore history and to invite serious question as to the point of the discussion. One must also note that all movements to ‘remove’ the influence of Christianity from the United States and civil laws result in the promotion of either Secular Humanism or Islam.

There are no moral vacuums.

5. It’s not possible to read Paul’s New Testament writings and remain unmoved by his open heart, intellectual prowess, and staggering bravery. And yet Paul (who, after all, spent years zealously persecuting and having executed untold numbers of Christians) must remain to us a mortal man. More than reasonable, it is incumbent upon those who claim to seek the deepest knowledge of Christ to subject the words of Paul to the same kinds of objective analysis we would the words of any man daring to describe the qualities, purposes, and desires of God.

This is a gentle, lofty and seemingly reasonable attempt to undermine the message presented by God through Paul the Apostle. What this statement does is deny the Divine inspiration and authorship of the Bible as a whole. It returns to the fore in a moment with more of the ‘villify Paul’ agenda.

6. With regards to the written identity of God, the pronoun “he” is a necessity of the English language, not an actual anatomical designation. God is neither male nor female; God contains all of both.

Again, agreement. In Hebrew, just as in English, the male pronoun unless specifically intended refers to both male and female. Jesus says (John 4:23 and 24)“But a time is coming – and now is here – when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such people to be his worshipers. God is spirit, and the people who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” Also one notes in Genesis (chapter one, verses 26 and 27)
“Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, after our likeness, so they may rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move on the earth.”
God created humankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them,
male and female he created them.

So, both male and female were (still are, more or less, being distorted from the original model by mankind’s disobedience) created in God’s image; which manifestly means not a physical image, but a mental and spiritual image.

7. The Biblical scholarship supporting the idea that Paul never wrote a word proscribing natural homosexuality is at least as credible and persuasive as the scholarship (if not typical Bible translations) claiming that he did. Any person who uses the words of Paul in the New Testament to “prove” that homosexuality is a sin against God has either never themselves researched the matter, or has simply chosen to believe one set of equal proofs over another. Though laziness is easily enough understood, we remain mystified as to why anyone who purports to follow Jesus would choose to condemn an entire population over choosing to obey Jesus’ self-proclaimed Greatest Commandment to love one’s neighbor as one loves oneself.

Here’s the follow up to point 5. Once Paul is ‘questionable’, the condemnation of homosexuality can be dismissed as a personal quirk, or possibly an outright error on the part of Christianity (on the whole).

Here’s the premise of the tenet: Paul either really didn’t mean what he wrote about the practice of homosexuality despite what is clearly written in the original Greek manuscripts and all subsequent translations of the Bible, or Paul was mistaken and therefore not inspired by God. What an amazing statement.

Either God inspired and authored the Bible or not. If one chooses to deny God’s inspiration in part, then the whole becomes suspect. If God was lax in allowing Paul to write and publish errors, then what of the rest of the Bible is trustworthy? Conversely, if God did in fact inspire and author the Bible, then Paul’s writing is equally trustworthy.

Leviticus 18
This entire section (several chapters) deals with sexual sins and prohibitions. In part (I have inserted whole paragraphs to present an in context view):
19 You must not approach a woman in her menstrual impurity to have sexual intercourse with her. 20 You must not have sexual intercourse with the wife of your fellow citizen to become unclean with her. 21 You must not give any of your children as an offering to Molech, so that you do not profane the name of your God. I am the Lord! 22 You must not have sexual intercourse with a male as one has sexual intercourse with a woman; it is a detestable act. 23 You must not have sexual intercourse with any animal to become defiled with it, and a woman must not stand before an animal to have sexual intercourse with it; it is a perversion.
Leviticus 20
9 “‘If anyone curses his father and mother he must be put to death. He has cursed his
father and mother; his blood guilt is on himself. 10 If a man commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death. 11 If a man has sexual intercourse with his father’s wife, he has exposed his father’s nakedness. Both of them must be put to death; their blood guilt is on themselves. 12 If a man has sexual intercourse with his daughter-in-law, both of them must be put to death. They have committed perversion; their blood guilt is on themselves. 13 If a man has sexual intercourse with a male as one has sexual intercourse with a woman, the two of them have committed an abomination. They must be put to death; their blood guilt is on themselves. 14 If a man has sexual intercourse with both a woman and her mother, it is lewdness. Both he and they must be burned to death, so there is no lewdness in your midst. 15 If a man has sexual intercourse with any animal, he must be put to death, and you must kill the animal. 16 If a woman approaches any animal to have sexual intercourse with it, you must kill the woman, and the animal must be put to death; their blood guilt is on themselves.

These two passages are from the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament. One can argue these are part of the Jewish or Mosaic Law and are therefore obsolete; in that case, general adultery, incest and bestiality are also permitted along with homosexual conduct. Or is that the point?

First Timothy 1 (written by that suspect Paul fellow)

8 But we know that the law is good if someone uses it legitimately, 9 realizing that law is not intended for a righteous person, but for lawless and rebellious people, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, 10 sexually immoral people, practicing homosexuals, kidnappers, liars, perjurers – in fact, for any who live contrary to sound teaching. 11 This accords with the glorious gospel of the blessed God that was entrusted to me.

There is a note on the phrase ‘practicing homosexuals’ in verse 10 from the NET Bible: “…this term… ??se?????t?? states, “a male who engages in sexual activity w. a pers. of his own sex, pederast 1 Cor 6:9…of one who assumes the dominant role in same-sex activity, opp. µa?a???…1 Ti 1:10; Pol 5:3. Cp. Ro 1:27.” L&N 88.280 states, “a male partner in homosexual intercourse – ‘homosexual.’…It is possible that ??se?????t?? in certain contexts refers to the active male partner in homosexual intercourse in contrast with µa?a???, the passive male partner” (cf. 1 Cor 6:9). Since there is a distinction in contemporary usage between sexual orientation and actual behavior, the qualification “practicing” was supplied in the translation…”

First Corinthians 6 (also written by that questionable Paul)
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, passive homosexual partners, practicing homosexuals, 10 thieves, the greedy, drunkards, the verbally abusive, and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Some of you once lived this way. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

This last passage strikes me an illuminating. Homosexuals are included in a list of sin categories which include heterosexual sexual sinners, idolaters, adulterers (distinct from ‘sexually immoral heterosexuals), thieves, greedy, drunkards, verbally abusive and swindlers. The phrase ‘verbally abusive’ is rather interesting. The NIV translates it as ‘slanderers’; I think ‘gossips’ might easily fit into the meaning. At any rate, people who say nasty things about others are lumped in with murderers, thieves and the sexually immoral (of any type).

The last verse in the paragraph implies a change of life in those reading the letter. “Some of you … lived… But you were washed… sanctified… justified…” So they were not just forgiven and allowed to continue; they changed their values and life-styles. The same implication applies to the sexually impure; they don’t do that sort of thing anymore; they avoid that sort of thing; they are ashamed of and denounce their own past behavior.

Therefore, the Old Testament writings prohibited homosexual conduct as does the writings of Paul, therefore the New Testament. The words used really do mean homosexual conduct and not just the generic ‘sexual misconduct’.

I’m really curious about the ‘equal scholarship’ which demonstrates what the Bible says isn’t what it means. I’d like to examine the line of thought and arguments.

The statement “…Jesus’ self-proclaimed Greatest Commandment to love one’s neighbor as one loves oneself” is incorrect and sloppy scholarship.

Matthew 22:
35 And one of them, an expert in religious law, asked him a question to test him: 36 “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 37 Jesus 44 said to him, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.

This tenet goes past ‘unfundamentalism’ and is squarely non-Christian.

8. It is much more reasonable—and certainly more compassionate—to hold that throughout history God chose to introduce himself in different ways into different cultural streams than it is to believe that there is only one correct way to understand and worship God, and that the punishment for anyone who chooses any but that way is to spend all of eternity having the living flesh seared off of his or her bones.

More reasonable? By who’s standard? As a Christian, the only viewpoint that counts is God’s viewpoint. That ‘viewpoint’ is expressed in the Bible, which is – as noted prior – God’s message to humanity.

More compassionate? To whom? Not to mention under what definition of ‘compassion’? I find no compassion in patting someone in error on the head and say comforting words while allowing them to remain in error at the risk of Eternal Death.

So let’s go along with the idea of God introducing Himself into different cultural streams in different ways. Why would introduce Himself in a totally different manner if He’s the same, Eternal God? For instance, in the sub-continent which is now India, why would God decide not to be the Eternal God of Creation of the Jewish people, but instead be represented by a pantheon of conflicting gods which change over time? Why would Almighty God manifest Himself as the volcano god, demanding virgin sacrifices? Would God happily change Himself into the Great Green Arkleseizure of Viltvodle VI?

Is He still God? Is He bored and just experimenting? Can He not remember who He is, from epoch to epoch?

The idea appeals to the ‘open-minded’ who have no ideas about who God is, or what He should be or do. The concept flies in the face of the ultimate creator of the Universe and all things that exist, who is Eternal and changeless, who is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent. In other words, God.

Again, not just ‘unfundamentalist’, but not very good thinking and doctrinally non Christian.

9. “No one comes to the Father except through me” does not mean that in the afterlife only Christians can get into heaven. It means that Jesus/God decides who does and doesn’t make it in.

From this one is forced to believe Jesus will not judge between those who accept Him and those who don’t, but instead will judge by ad hoc rules of ‘good behavior’. I say ‘ad hoc’ because no such rules are outlined in the Bible.

All that stuff about believing in the Son and relying on Him in tenet 1 are out the window, then? It is good deeds that really make the difference?

This heresy is remarkably old as well. It predates Christianity, in fact.

Jesus mentioned this concept in Matthew Seven, starting with verse 15:
15 “Watch out for false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are voracious wolves. 16 You will recognize them by their fruit. Grapes are not gathered from thorns or figs from thistles, are they? 17 In the same way, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree is not able to bear bad fruit, nor a bad tree to bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 So then, you will recognize them by their fruit.
21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the kingdom of heaven – only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. 22 On that day, many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in your name, and in your name cast out demons and do many powerful deeds?’ 23 Then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you. Go away from me, you lawbreakers!’
24 “Everyone who hears these words of mine and does them is like a wise man who built his house on rock. 25 The rain fell, the flood came, and the winds beat against that house, but it did not collapse because it had been founded on rock. 26 Everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain fell, the flood came, and the winds beat against that house, and it collapsed; it was utterly destroyed!”
So then, what about “… the one who does the will of my Father in heaven…”? John 15, starting with verse nine makes it clear:
9 “Just as the Father has loved me, I have also loved you; remain in my love. 10 If you obey my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. 11 I have told you these things so that my joy may be in you, and your joy may be complete.”

Nowhere in the Bible, nowhere in the quotations of Jesus, nowhere in the letters of the various apostles and elders in Jerusalem is any such doctrine mentioned or taught. In one setting (John 10:14-18), Jesus says,
14 “I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me – 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father – and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that do not come from this sheepfold. I must bring them too, and they will listen to my voice, so that there will be one flock and one shepherd. 17 This is why the Father loves me – because I lay down my life, so that I may take it back again. 18 No one takes it away from me, but I lay it down of my own free will. I have the authority to lay it down, and I have the authority to take it back again. This commandment I received from my Father.”

Verse 16 is often used to ‘prove’ the heresy of various versions of God and or Jesus running about in human history, showing up in various forms and guises. One fellow seriously suggested it could indicate the existence of extra-terrestrial life. Actually, the statement simply indicates non-Jewish people were included. That’s all.

I personally don’t have any problem with extra-terrestrial life, or any of them being in Heaven. But it will be on the basis of an individual relationship with Jesus Christ.

I am also firmly convinced all the inhabitants of planet Earth will have adequate notice of the person and Deity of Jesus Christ. God is not the sort of being who looks for tiny excuses and ‘foot-faults’ to disqualify anyone from Heaven.

10. The question of whether or not hell is real is properly subsumed by the truth that a moment spent worrying if you’ll be with God in the afterlife is an opportunity missed to be with God in this life.

I agree. There is no point of wondering, let alone worrying, if Hell is real. Jesus talks about it too much to be in doubt. It isn’t pleasant, but it’s there. One is obliged to take note and do something to avoid residence.

11. God’s will and intention is to forgive and teach us, not to judge and punish us.

That is true, but only to a qualified extent. Jesus came to Earth as a mortal man to tell us what to do to avoid Eternal punishment and die in our place to pay the price for our sin. Obviously, God the Father was in on this plan as was the Holy Spirit.

God really does not want anyone to spend Eternity in Hell. However, since all mankind is in the default position of being in rebellion against God, mankind is by default condemned to Eternal Hell.

The words of Jesus in John, chapter three:
16 For this is the way God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world should be saved through him. 18 The one who believes in him is not condemned. The one who does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God. 19 Now this is the basis for judging: that the light has come into the world and people loved the darkness rather than the light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone who does evil deeds hates the light and does not come to the light, so that their deeds will not be exposed. 21 But the one who practices the truth comes to the light, so that it may be plainly evident that his deeds have been done in God.
God is loving and concerned. God is simultaneously honest and just. God is God and that means – in a long list of other things – He will always conduct Himself as God and be true to His own nature.

There are also a number of references warning that when Jesus returns – ‘The Second Coming’ – He will in fact judge all people according to their alliances.

12. The only person who should be actively endeavoring to convert non-Christians into Christians is God. Jesus does not need our help drawing people towards him. He does need, or could certainly use, our help in making sure that people know that they are, just as they are, loved.

This statement directly contradicts the command of Jesus.

Matthew 28:16-20
16 So the eleven disciples went to Galilee to the mountain Jesus had designated. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age

Acts 1
6 So when they had gathered together, they began to ask him, “Lord, is this the time when you are restoring the kingdom to Israel?” 7 He told them, “You are not permitted to know the times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the farthest parts of the earth.” 9 After he had said this, while they were watching, he was lifted up and a cloud hid him from their sight.

First Peter 3
15 But set Christ apart as Lord in your hearts and always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks about the hope you possess. (“Hope” here meaning the expectation of Eternal life with God.)

So in this statement again, the concept is not ‘un-fundamentalist’ but ‘un-Christian’.

13. Getting a divorce is painful, and if at all possible should certainly be avoided. But ultimately the act in and of itself is not immoral.

This statement flatly contradicts Jesus’ teaching on the subject.

Matthew 5
31 “It was said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife must give her a legal document.’ 32 But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Matthew 19
3 Then some Pharisees came to him in order to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful to divorce a wife for any cause?” 4 He answered, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator made them male and female, 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and will be united with his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” 7 They said to him, “Why then did Moses command us to give a certificate of dismissal and to divorce her?” 8 Jesus said to them, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because of your hard hearts, but from the beginning it was not this way. 9 Now I say to you that whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another commits adultery.” 10 The disciples said to him, “If this is the case of a husband with a wife, it is better not to marry!”11 He said to them, “Not everyone can accept this statement, except those to whom it has been given. 12 For there are some eunuchs who were that way from birth, and some who were made eunuchs by others, and some who became eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who is able to accept this should accept it.”

So yes, Jesus said divorce is an immoral act, save for the cause of adultery. Even then, the divorced man or woman is limited in options.

14. God does not want any woman “submitting” to anyone.

Another direct contradiction of Biblical teaching.

Ephesians 5
22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord, 23 because the husband is the head of the wife as also Christ is the head of the church – he himself being the savior of the body. 24 But as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her 26 to sanctify her by cleansing her with the washing of the water by the word, 27 so that he may present the church to himself as glorious – not having a stain or wrinkle, or any such blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In the same way husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.

Colossians 3
18 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them.

Oh, wait! That’s that questionable Paul again! Since Paul is so very questionable, we can ignore much of his writings – especially the parts about moral conduct, sexual misconduct and general carryings-on.

First Peter 3
1 In the same way, wives, be subject to your own husbands. Then, even if some are disobedient to the word, they will be won over without a word by the way you live, 2 when they see your pure and reverent conduct… like Sarah who obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. You become her children when you do what is good and have no fear in doing so. 7 Husbands, in the same way, treat your wives with consideration as the weaker partners and show them honor as fellow heirs of the grace of life. In this way nothing will hinder your prayers.

That’s the summation of Peter the Apostle. He agrees with Paul the suspect.

15. There were no dinosaurs on Noah’s ark; Jesus didn’t have a pet stegosaurus. An all-powerful God and the theory of evolution are not incompatible.

Whooop! Whooop! Whooop! Strawman Alert!
So, just where do we find claims of dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark? Which gospel contains the story of Jesus and His pet stegosaurus? What kind of hairball ploy is this?

Okay, “An all-powerful God and the theory of evolution are not incompatible.” That part is reasonable enough. However, this isn’t a matter of doctrinal distinction; it’s a matter of textual examination.

Dinosaurs on the Ark? Sheesh.

16. The single most telling indicator of a person’s moral character has nothing to do with how they define or worship God, and everything to do with how they treat others.

So, a relationship with God isn’t important; what is important is ‘good deeds’.

Actually, this is a deceptive argument; somewhat strawman in nature. I’ll agree one’s ‘moral character’ is not always dependent on how one defines or worships God. However, one’s moral character has nothing to do with one’s Eternal estate, being in a proper relationship with God and spending Eternity with God in Heaven.

One can be a rotten skunk and be bound for Heaven, or a very decent, clean, honest and honorable person going to Hell.

I know for a fact that my moral character was – for that matter ‘is’ – not always as good and shining as it ought to be. After becoming a Christian, I have sinned grievously, often and cheerfully. But my eternal destination is already secure and in Jesus’ care. As far as God is concerned in Judgment, I am as pure as Jesus.

Which is not to say I’m content in my life that way, or at peace with God. I found I was a jittery, angry, depressed, unsettled maniac; at least some combination of two or three of those. I can hide it well, but it’s there and I am very aware of it.

What happens is this: God works on me to make me into who – the type of person – He wants me to be, fit for Heaven in Eternity.

To conclude:

“Un-fundamentalists” accept the Deity, Sacrifice, Resurrection and Redemptive nature and power of Jesus Christ. However, they also believe God has appeared in other forms and guises, seemingly revealing other versions of Himself. So Jesus really isn’t uniquely God at all.

“Un-fundamentalists” deny the Divinely Inspired nature of the Bible, strip Paul’s writing of authority and accept homosexual misconduct – and by inference, heterosexual misconduct – as both normal and moral.

“Un-fundamentalists” claim the goal of Christianity is to live a good life; ‘good’ being defined by not offending anyone, getting along with all and ignoring Biblical principles if adherence would cause a row.

“Un-fundamentalists” believe Christians should not vote in accordance with Biblical principles. Nor should laws follow the long held traditions of either Judaism or Christianity.

“Un-fundamentalists” do not assume responsibility for evangelism; in fact, evangelism is discouraged.

“Un-fundamentalists” believe God never criticizes or judges human conduct. They believe there is no Hell. After all, God isn’t going to punish anyone for anything anyway.

All things considered, “Un-fundamentalist Christian” is not a properly descriptive phrase. Citing the serious theological and doctrinal differences between this cult and mainstream Christianity, I would suggest perhaps “Nearly Christian” would be a better description. Since the first tenet does recognize Jesus as God, perhaps “Barely Christian” would do.

Now, I know some bright soul is going to jump on me with the Biblical injunction of “Judge not, lest ye be judged”. The statement comes in Matthew 7, starting with the beginning of the chapter. The whole paragraph reads as follows:

1 “Do not judge so that you will not be judged. 2 For by the standard you judge you will be judged, and the measure you use will be the measure you receive. 3 Why do you see the speck in your brother’s eye, but fail to see the beam of wood in your own? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye,’ while there is a beam in your own? 5 You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. 6 Do not give what is holy to dogs or throw your pearls before pigs; otherwise they will trample them under their feet and turn around and tear you to pieces.

This whole speech is addressed at being judgmental of other people in regard to their fitness or standing before God. I am not ‘judging’ any person, but a set of beliefs and how they measure up to Christianity, I am not violating any injunction. Indeed, I am following a warning given by John the Revelator in First John 4:

1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses Jesus as the Christ who has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God, and this is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming, and now is already in the world.

So I am testing this ‘spirit’, this claim of revelation of God. I find interesting that tenet 1 claims to recognize Jesus as the Son of God in the Flesh, and then denies Jesus’ Deity in most of the subsequent tenets.

(Submitter's note: SPOILER ALERT!)

Why Star Wars: The Force Awakens Is A Social Justice Propaganda Film

Spread my warning across the galaxy, Padawans.

The Force Awakens is spectacularly replete with the handiwork of the avowed Social Justice Warrior JJ Abrams. So where can I possibly start in my criticisms? From the casting, which puts minorities and women incessantly and ridiculously in your face to make a political point (not tell a story), to the laziest of all space battles, the problems with the Episode 7 are more than numerous.

Let’s make no mistake: Abrams is a capable filmmaker, when he wants to be. Parts with General Hux, especially his speech and the destruction of the Hosnian system, are glorious. The visuals, not just those with CGI, are stunning. Abrams’ mission, though, is to distract viewers with impressive scenes and some chunks of capably written dialogue so as to implant his take on “girl power” and safe spaces for non-whites.

The Mary Sue of all Mary Sues

Is there anything she can’t do after reading a third wave feminist tract?
The female Rey, who it is heavily implied is Luke’s daughter, is the most underdeveloped character yet in over 14 hours of Star Wars films. Her story arc is practically-speaking non-existent and only the veneer of her sadness about her family leaving her on Jakku is painted over it. Whereas with other major Force-wielders in the series their abilities have previously developed or are developed over years, Rey seemingly does it in less than 12 seconds, rather than parsecs. Her whole trajectory in the film reeks of “god mode”, which for non-gamers like myself refers to the cheat codes that make a game character invincible.

Big question: did she fart in the wind on Jakku and the blowback from the desert winds grew her Force powers to monolithic proportions? That’s the only possible explanation.

In the case of Anakin Skywalker in the prequels, by contrast, we learn that he is the only human pilot to engage in pod racing. His mechanical know-how has been honed over some years, culminating in his construction of both his own pad racer and the droid C-3PO. And when he destroys the droid control ship above Naboo, it is largely as a result of his good fortune, not just long-acquired skill. A decade later and with continuous training, he additionally fails to best Count Dooku on Geonosis.

Two hours into the first film, with no training, Rey beats Kylo Ren. Four hours into the original trilogy, and with the training of Ben Kenobi and Yoda, Luke loses his right hand. Go girls!
Cast your mind back to the original trilogy, too. Aside from a little kid’s play with his father’s lightsaber at Ben Kenobi’s hermit pad and onboard the Millennium Falcon, Luke does not wield the weapon at all in A New Hope, let alone in combat against the likes of a Vader. He does destroy the Death Star as a very novice X-wing pilot, but this is after years of him taking out his stuck-on-bloody-Tatooine frustrations on womp rats in his T-16. Moreover, Luke would have been burnt space toast without the intervention of Han Solo and the Falcon. Oh, and in The Empire Strikes Back, after the tutelage of Yoda, he still gets his hand cleaved off by Vader.

So I am meant to believe that Rey could savage and nearly kill her presumed cousin Kylo Ren, whether he is injured or not? Ren is not yet a Vader in his powers. That much is clear. But this is the man who helped slaughter, as a boy or teenager, basically all of the talented pupils of Luke Skywalker. Luke then disappears and Kylo Ren is given more or less free rein, only to be wounded once by Chewbacca’s crossbow, once by apparently non-Force-sensitive Finn (“This is for slavery, whitey!”) and three times by Rey (“Fuck the patriarchy!”). Fuck off—that’s a plot fueled by meth.

To boot, Rey’s piloting and mechanical skills, to the point of knowing everything, is mind-boggingly “get more women in STEM” in its motivations. When she starts teaching Han Solo about the Falcon, things become breathtakingly contrived. It’s as if Abrams was paid by a female science scholarship foundation to drum up some public service announcements via film.

The plot is IQ-damagingly dumb

They put twenty times more effort into the parade than organizing the base defenses. And they didn’t learn from either the first or second Death Star debacles. Or Abrams and his writing team were too busy making Rey a goddess.
I take no issue with some of the artistic license Abrams uses in The Force Awakens. How the First Order managed to create a sun-sucking super weapon on a preexisting ice planet can be explained one day by some talented PhD graduate from the University of Coruscant. So, too, can the appearance of the Starkiller’s death beams and the destruction of the Hosnian system in the sky above far removed Takodana.

What matters, though, is the plot. Scientific ambiguities and inaccuracies can be tolerated if the story functions. But it’s entirely lacking here. For a start, the film borrows from or plain copies so many elements of A New Hope that I lost count. A non-exhaustive list would include a girl being held captive at the flagship facility of a military junta, a space battle to prevent the noble guerrillas’ base from being obliterated, and the death of an older character just as the younger infiltrators are about to leave for home. For the sake of free words, I cannot mention them all.

Beyond just the formulaic plot, here are a few of the frankly stupid elements of the story:

Finn just happens to be an ex-sanitation worked at Starkiller Base, in a galaxy where the First Order forces are now so numerous and powerful that the New Republic has to use the Resistance as a weak proxy to fight it. So he knows where to find the oscillator, which will destabilize and then obliterate the planet if destroyed. Makes perfect sense!
Both in its size and complexity, Starkiller Base makes the two Death Stars look like plasticine renderings. Yet there is no fleet to protect it? And a paucity of very ineffective turbolaser batteries and TIE fighter squadrons? A Resistance member at their headquarters light years away mentions them losing half their X-wings during the battle, as if that was so hard when they launched about, um, three and a half of them.
The amazingly overblown female character Captain Phasma is held at gunpoint and forced to lower Starkiller Base’s shields. These shields can be lowered so easily and without the immediate knowledge of General Hux or someone else? Oh, please, spare me.
Han Solo exits hyperspace no more than a few hundred metres from the surface of the Starkiller planet. And he announces it with “Now!” Hooray! Base infiltrated with common sense!
Finn is likeable but nevertheless a glorified white knight. Trained from just after birth to be a fighting machine, he does nothing relative to Rey and devotes the whole film to trying to protect her.

Tick the boxes with plenty of female and non-white characters

Game of Thrones’ Jessica Henwick was a cast a female X-wing pilot. Again, cast for her race and gender.
You can sniff out Abrams’ leanings from the start. As First Order troopships prepare to land to take out a village on Jakku, the first villager who pulls out a a blaster in defense is a woman. And it is some sort of big, mounted-looking one! This girl power is really paralleled in our world, where millions of young Western girls are so keen to protect their village or country that they won’t even join up, as their male contemporaries are forced to, in places like Finland and South Korea during peacetime. Or make the slightest squeak about the double standard. Well done, JJ.

Captain Phasma is given command of the First Order’s elite stormtroopers but she has the same biology as in our world, where no woman has ever passed the Marine Corps’ Infantry Officer Course. Another female stormtrooper reports to Ren about the failed attempt to locate Rey. And, after years of pretty much male-only recruitment, the New Republic’s affirmative action policies have been copied by the First Order, with large numbers of female military panel operators, technicians and officers.

The same goes for the racial choices. Insert a token female Asian and black male pilot. Black and Asian pilots were actually first done long ago (in Return of the Jedi) but JJ needs more, more, more! All while the plot suffers. Funny how an overwhelmingly male military combat force in a film is considered “unrealistic” when it is almost a carbon copy of our own reality in 2015.

Do not watch this film (at least by paying)

Pretty much sums it up.
Somebody has to watch it and for ROK that person is me. Our proprietor Roosh has refused to and all power to him and anyone else who has abstained. It helps when a limited few of us view it, to pick it apart piece by piece. An understanding of how entertainment is being used to propagandise acceptable social narratives is important.

It’s laughable how critics can butcher the revelation in the prequels that the Force is just the interaction of symbiotic organisms called midi-chlorians and other living things but laud The Force Awakens as a piece of sophisticated, “progressive” filmmaking. Some outlets have even resorted to naming and implicitly shaming critics who disliked this new addition. For a good parody of the pro-SJW obsessions of The Force Awakens, see Steven Crowder’s recent takedown.

For the time being, when it comes to deciding whether to see this film, take evasive action. It’s a trap.

Anna Rountree #fundie 64.71.77.248

Jesus held me at arm’s length, studying my face. He smiled, turned, and led the way toward the building.

The atmosphere in the valley was red as though the building was catching the light from a distant forest fire. It was eerie. It cast long shadows across the valley.

The shadows traveled up the building until they reached two enormous black marble dragons on top. These dragons were facing each other with their wings uplifted and touching like the cherubim over the mercy seat.

The building was a mockery of the ark of the covenant. It was deathly dark as if it were made from antimatter. The black marble exterior was wet, and the overbearing humidity made it difficult to breathe.

Shadow Warriors

Thousands of soldiers were standing shoulder to shoulder on all four sides of the building. They wore an ancient style of armor whose design I had never seen. These warriors were camped around the building, just as the Levites were instructed to camp around the desert tabernacle. None of them moved when we passed through their numbers, however.

“Why?” I wondered. I glanced down their ranks to see if I could discern the reason for their inaction. The faces within the helmets were shadow. But their eyes tracked us.

I suddenly remembered how the two angels that were sent to rescue Lot had temporarily blinded the men of Sodom. Jesus, I thought, must have rendered these demons inert. They were alert. But they were incapable of action. They held their ranks like clay soldiers buried with early Chinese emperors.

The Approach

After passing through most of the ranks of the soldiers, Jesus approached the building. The structure had the appearance of a gigantic mausoleum. As we drew near, I could see that the black marble dragons were breathing. So were the black marble monkeys that formed a decoration around the top of the building. These leered down at us.

The massive double doors unlatched as we approached. They opened slowly. Each door was of great weight. They pictured satan ’s supposed conquests. They were executed in bronze relief and were similar to the doors of European cathedrals that often depict the life of Christ.

Within

The doors opened outwardly to give us entry to a large, windowless room. The smell within the room was odious. The room, like the valley, seemed lit by distant fires. My eyes traveled up to a heavy raised cornice. It formed a crown around the top of the room. A text was written upon it in an ancient language of wedges and triangles.

Jesus waved His hand, and the lettering changed so that I was able to read the inscription. The text proclaimed satan ’s five “I wills” with which he intended to vault himself above the throne of God and crown himself king of the universe. I shuddered.

Hanging upside down from this cornice were half-female, half-batlike demons—the Lilith, the vampire demons that hunt at night. They were repugnant. I dropped my gaze and saw the reason for the stench in the room. Bat guano.

On Display

Display tables flanked either side of the room. These were covered with what seemed to be black velvet. The objects on display were shining with light from within. The objects were beautiful, not because of exquisite workmanship nor because they were encrusted with jewels. Instead, they seemed to have some beauty bestowed upon them by God. They were His, for His people had used them. Now they sat on display like war mementos. I quickly glanced over the tables in astonishment. This was a trophy room.

Stolen From God

Each article was labeled with a clay marker. The same wedges and triangular-shaped writing was on these markers as was on the cornice. Again, Jesus waved His hand. The language changed so that I could read the labels.

On display were the just measure, Miriam’s tambourine, Bezalel’s renderings for the workers (of the patterns given to Moses on the mount), the widow’s bowl, various musical instruments of ancient design, and on and on. We passed article after article that had been used by God in some extraordinary way and then stolen from Him. I could only suppose that these had been taken into the enemy camp because of the sins of God’s people.

I was heartened, however, by the empty spaces on the tables. The labels showed articles that apparently had been rescued to be used by God’s people again. Goliath’s sword that was used by David was missing. David’s harp had been retrieved. There was an empty space where once a banner had been displayed. As we neared the rear of the trophy room, I saw a white embroidered robe on a black clothes stand. It was luminescent. satan had displayed it by itself, as if it were a prized acquisition.

The Fresco

Beyond this article on the rear wall was a vivid fresco.” Before the fresco burned black candles. The flickering lights from the candles seemed to give the fresco a life of its own.

The fresco began at its base with recounting after recounting of brutal tortures of some of God’s people. Those being tortured still seemed alive. The fresco was like none I had ever seen. It was similar to a hologram. Light from the candles caused the pictures to have progressive action, so that those suffering suffered again, with satan supposedly gaining the victory again and again. Barbarous.

The Throne of Skulls

My eyes traveled up this mountain of slaughter to about one-third of the way to the ceiling. Here the fresco began to depict a mound of skulls. This mound rose to a throne of skulls upon which sat the goat-like legs of a satyr.

The enthroned creature had the torso and arms of a human but the head and horns of a goat. In this goat/man's left hand was held a picture of the world. In his other hand was the location for two keys. The outline of the keys was still there, but the keys of death and of Hades had been removed from his hand.

The fresco vaulted up until it covered the first half of the ceiling like a frightful canopy. It was satan , goatlike, enthroned upon a mountainous pile of human skulls. He was gloating in sinister splendor. As God the Father is enthroned upon the praises of His people, satan is enthroned upon his murderous savageries and sadistic cruelties.

A chill ran through me. Flickering light from the black candles caused satan ’s face to move, seemingly to change before my eyes. His snake-like eyes glared at me.

The Embroidered Robe

Jesus touched my shoulder. I flinched. We began to walk toward the acquisition at the very back—the embroidered robe.

It was fall length with long sleeves. The design of the garment was simple. A man or woman could have worn it. Its richness lay in the embroidered work that was executed in white gold of exceptional purity The embroidery arose from the robe. The pattern was intricate and exceptionally beautiful. As I moved a little before the garment, all the colors within the radiance of the Father seemed to play across its surface.

The weight and thickness of the various gold threads seemed to symbolize attributes of the Lord. The robe reflected these as if they had been woven into the garment.

The Embroidery

I had no idea a garment could communicate that which was of the character of Christ. Still, I wanted to move slightly before the embroidery to ascertain what was woven into the fabric.

I received the impression of “a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.” The garment also reflected “bearing with one another” and “forgiving each other.”’ The thread that had the greatest weight and was the most frequently used was “love.”

These were part of the character of Christ that Paul enumerated in Colossians 3:12—14. He had told the body of Christ alive at that time to “put on” this garment. If he had told them to put it on, they must have had it in their possession but were not wearing it. I gathered that sin had eventually allowed the garment to be taken from God’s children. Sad. We had great need of it.

Jesus spoke to me quietly. “The garment is for the soul and heart. It is an inner garment that becomes visible through actions, through decisions that effect unity [oneness in Christ].”

He continued, “I am the new, inner garment—others rather than self. The supreme Other is God [the Father] Himself—His rights, His needs, and His desires before all. I have purchased you for our Father. I have washed you and clothed you with garments of holiness and beauty, garments of salvation and righteousness. Anna, clothe yourself in Me—garments of salvation for the whole person [body, soul, heart, and spirit]. Clothe yourself in Me—attributes of righteousness that are beautiful to God [the Father].”

I turned back to look at the robe. It was exquisite. The Lord’s virtues woven into the garment had brought the body of Christ into “the perfect bond of unity.” Paul had said this. How we needed it now.

He continued, “The embroidered garment is to be worn by those who are the bride. It was handed down in our family. Those who were entering into fuller union with Me wore it. There is none like it. It belongs to our household.”

As I looked at the robe, I realized that to enter into a deeper relationship with Christ meant to enter into a deeper covenant with His body. The two are inseparable.

The Recovery

“Carefully listen to Me,” Jesus said softly. “I want you to remove the garment, then quickly climb onto My back.” Without hesitation He placed His hand on the top of the velvet clothes rack.

I did not have time to think. Instantly I obeyed and began to remove the robe. The more I disengaged the garment, the harder He pressed on the top of the rack. I supposed He was compensating for some weight of glory in it. He continued to press on the top of the rack as I folded the embroidered robe so that it could be carried.

When the garment had been secured, I looked at Jesus. He gave the flicker of a smile, winked at me, and then removed His hand from the rack.

The Escape

Screams, sirens, and alarms of all kinds immediately arose together. All restraints were removed from everything within this realm.

Quickly the Lord became the white Eagle. Nervously I scrambled onto His back.

The vampire bat demons unfolded their huge wings. Their eyes were bloodred. They hissed through their fanged mouths. They were deranged with fury.

The doors to the front of the trophy room began to close. The white Eagle had to fly with His wings perpendicular to the floor to pass through the narrow opening. I tightened my arms and legs around Him, pressing the robe between my flattened body and His back. We passed through the opening like a single unit. With searing screams everything—bats, monkeys, dragons, soldiers—wrenched awake.

It seemed as though everything in the corrupted stratum breathed down upon us in the chase—screeching, squalling, shrieking, a cacophony of blood-curdling sounds raised behind us. They were a frenzied juggernaut.

The marble dragons wrenched free from the top of the building with all the cracking and tearing that accompany a structure being torn apart. The black marble monkeys violently ripped free to join in the hunt. The Lilith and shadow warriors rabidly pursued. Whether hoofed, winged, clawed, flightless, or airborne, they pressed us. They were a murderous horde of frenzy and rage.

Quickly demons from elsewhere in the second heaven joined these in the chase. The whole second heaven sounded like one dangerous, wounded animal. The bone-chilling cries that went up from that place made my blood run cold. Horrific.

I clung to the white Eagle. It was a wild ride. Wild! … but exhilarating. I threw back my head, gulping air and laughing silently. Let them roar. That was all that it was, a roar. A show. I was with Jesus, and Jesus had won the victory! Let them roar!

REVEALINGTRUTHTODAY #fundie revealingtruthtoday.wordpress.com

“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.

On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” ~2nd Corinthians 10:4

The popular fiction book, “The Hunger Games” has been made into a movie and will be released in theaters on March 23, 2012. It is the first movie of a trilogy. The other two movies to follow are, “Catching Fire” and “Mockingjay”. Before we proceed, let’s review (what I call) a “red flag word/phrase.” The name of the second movie is what? Catching Fire?! Does that bring any imagery or thoughts of Hell to mind? We must be very sensitive to these “red flag” words and/or phrases.

In The Hunger Games, we find there are two major themes – rebellion and murder. The storyline is that the post-Apocalyptic Capitol (formerly North America) holds an annual televised event called “The Hunger Games.” Each district must draw the names of a boy and girl between the ages of 12 and 18. There were originally 13 districts before the Capitol destroyed one, leaving 12. Biblically, the number 13 represents rebellion; so we find the theme of rebellion still being evoked ever-so subtly. Altogether, there are 24 youths chosen to become contestants (called “tributes”). They must fight to the death in a vast arena. The lone survivor returns home to wealth and fame.

Let’s stop for a moment and review some significant “red flag” symbolism and counterfeit “spin-offs” from scripture. First off, we find that the 13 districts (13 representing rebellion) dwindled down to 12. Is there any significance in the number 12? In scripture, we find there are 12 tribes of Israel (God’s chosen) and 12 disciples of Jesus who were chosen by Jesus. It appears these 12 boys and 12 girls are the “chosen ones” much like a disciple would be chosen by Jesus; only these 12 boys and 12 girls are chosen for evil – to kill others for wealth, and fame. The number 12 also represents government – so the subtle symbolism is there, since it is the government (Capitol) who have The Hunger Games. It is not coincidence that these references match up; this often happens when something is counterfeit for the truth. The devil is sly and clever; so he will make the counterfeit look genuine. He will make something horribly bad look good and noble. Many admire the character Katniss for taking her sister’s place. “How sweet,” the movie-watchers will say, “She’s so good.” Once they see her as “good” then they can be introduced to other evils and accept them easily. As we continue, we find there are 24 “tributes” chosen for the games. Let’s review the number 24… is that number of any significance? In scripture, the number 24 represents a higher form of Heavenly government and worship. Think of the 24 elders in Heaven who worship God. Revelation 4:4 declares, “Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads.” There is also other symbolism present in the movie such as the mockingjay pin worn by Katniss. It is said to be a hybrid bird that represents rebellion.

The author, Suzanne Collins, admits that the books were partly inspired by the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur. Anytime you read about Greek mythology, you will find it is inundated with false gods, goddesses, evil, and idol worship. So, for this to be her inspiration seems to further validate the point that it is not written to glorify God. “For the Scriptures say, ‘You must be holy because I [the Lord God] am holy’” 1st Peter 1:16. Also, 1st Corinthians 10:31 states, “… do all to the glory of God.”

Authors Stephen King and Stephanie Meyer are among many that sing the praises for The Hunger Games trilogy. However, it’s like the old saying goes, “Consider the source.” King as well as Meyer are known for writing dark novels. Other reviewers are noting that the trilogy is dark, mad, and twisted; yet, they still give it 4-star reviews! Remember, “Birds of a feather flock together.” The influence of evil will always confuse bad for good. Romans 1:25 says, “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie…”

In the storyline, the fictional President Snow defends the games by saying, “Freedom has a cost,” and that its winners are reminders of the government’s “victory and forgiveness.” He makes it clear he believes that “a little hope is effective; a lot of hope is dangerous.” Now, wait a minute. The cost of freedom is children being sacrificed to death for the government’s “victory and forgiveness”?! Are you kidding me?! Jesus is the only One who was worthy to purchase our freedom, victory, and forgiveness. Although The Hunger Games is fictional, it has some very sacrilegious statements. Also, the President Snow states that “a lot of hope is dangerous” – reminds me of how false this statement is. We have amazing hope in Christ and it isn’t the least bit dangerous. In fact, hope is all that keeps us going many times! Proverbs 13:12 says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” Why would we want to watch a movie that teaches “hope is dangerous”?

Near the end of the movie, there are only 2 “tributes” (contestants) left – Peeta and his crush, Katniss. At the last moment, a voice announces that the rules have changed and only one of them can survive. Only one contestant can win, meaning the tributes (friends, Peeta and Katniss) must fight each other to the death. Peeta and Katniss threaten to eat poisonous berries simultaneously and die together. The Gamemakers, knowing a double suicide will be an unsatisfying conclusion for the audience, quickly uphold their earlier ruling. Suicide as a solution is being taught in this movie. With cutting, self-harm, drug/alcohol abuse, and depression at an all-time high, how is it okay to show suicide as a solution? These subliminal messages go into the hearts and minds, and are directly inspired by Satan. We find in Matthew 4 that Satan tempted Jesus with suicide when he tempted him to jump off the highest point of the temple; however, Jesus resisted Satan. But, will weaker ones have the strength to resist Satan when he constantly and falsely puts suicide in front of them as a solution to a problem?

There are many other evil symbols, themes, counterfeits, and influences contained in The Hunger Games trilogy which we have not covered – such as Katniss calling the woods her “savior” and devoting her Sundays to hunting in them; or the hauntingly close parallel to the Capitol arena mimicking the Roman Coliseum where many Christians endured cruel deaths. But, suffice it to say that this movie is hardly suitable for Christians to watch (or anybody else, for that matter).

A review of the movie by editor Douglas Wilson says: “Suppose the Capitol bad guys had decided to set up a different required sin in their games. Suppose it were the Rape Games instead. Suppose that the person who made it through the games without being raped was the feted winner. Anybody here think that this series would be the bestselling phenomenon that this one is? In short, when you have the privilege of setting up all the circumstances artificially, in order to give your protagonist no real choice about whether to sin or not, it is a pretty safe bet that a whole lot of people in a relativistic country, including the Christians in it unfortunately, won’t notice.”

In closing, I like what one mom wrote. She said, “Allowing a child to feed on something like this is just downright irresponsible! Parents don’t think for a moment that you will draw your child closer to Christ when they have been enveloped by the madness of books like this.”

Actually, public schools teach direct opposition of Christianity. If I tell students they shouldn't have sex outside of marriage, I'd be told I was enforcing my beliefs on the students, yet when a boy wants to change in a girl's locker room, it's called equality.
I could show students a video of people having sex and that's educational, but if I say "the Bible says" I'm breaking the law and need to stop. If a student walks around the school and brags about how many girls he's been with, it's appropriate for a teacher to applaud him, but the student who walks around proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ, he must be stopped, because an evil world will tolerate the rape of women before hearing about Jesus Christ.
There's no such thing as being neutral when it comes to the truth.
He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad. Matthew 12:30

You do the devil's bidding by calling good evil and calling evil good.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!

I have to agree, that by teaching Christianity, he's violating the law, but when the law goes against the world's sin, they change the law and celebrate breaking it. How many principals are there who drive drunk, use illegal drugs, etc.

Fact is Christians take consequences for what we believe, chaplains being discharged, a local college student being expelled for his Christian beliefs not fitting those of his college's counseling program, no refund, nothing. Pastors being arrested for public proclamation of the gospel in ur "free" nation.
The cost of following Christ is high, but consider the even greater cost of going against Him.

The wicked shall be turned into hell,
And all the nations that forget God. Psalm 9:17

Psalm 7:10 My defense is of God,
Who saves the upright in heart.
11 God is a just judge,
And God is angry with the wicked every day.
12 If he does not turn back,
He will sharpen His sword;
He bends His bow and makes it ready.

You're saying there is no right and wrong, it's all subjective, so the principal shouldn't teach Christianity in a school of violence, because you don't like it. So according to your thinking, there's nothing wrong with kids being molested if it fits the general social norms.
Overall, you're saying, I'm a pretty good person Proverbs 20:6 Most men will proclaim each his own goodness,
But who can find a faithful man?
You sound like the average American "I do right by my fellow man, pay my bills, I'm not a bad person" Not intending that in a mocking way, but consider this, you're a criminal in the highest court in the universe. God who is eternally existing Father, Son, and Spirit; created all the universe, not out of necessity, but His good pleasure to do so. In the grand scheme of all the universe,the planet earth is but a speck, you exist as a speck on a speck and insult the God who created and sustains your life. You've violated every law He's gave. You've done evil while ignoring conscious and calling it good.
Consider
Surely You set them in slippery places;
You cast them down to destruction.
19 Oh, how they are brought to desolation, as in a moment!
They are utterly consumed with terrors.
Deuteronomy 32:35 Vengeance is Mine, and recompense;
Their foot shall slip in due time;
For the day of their calamity is at hand,
And the things to come hasten upon them.

Why, so much anger, you have no idea what the Bible says, you just know you hate God. You are arrogant in your unbelief. You love your sin and the Bible tells the truth about you. Your heart is full of evil, lust, envy, hatred of good, but what I hear you saying is Hey coach stop worshipping Jesus and serve the sin nature, forsake the truth, return to the darkness, don't you quote that Bible, I don't like it. Because of Christ, I am no longer a slave to sin, no longer blinded to the truth, no longer addicted to porn. I couldn't go back to the world even if God said I wouldn't be judged for it.

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”Galatians 3:13

Galatians 1:11 But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. 12 For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.

13 For you have heard of my former conduct in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it. 14 And I advanced in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries in my own nation, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers.

15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, 16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood,

Answer me this question, is it wrong to murder? How do you determine your answer?

God has perfect knowledge of all things, but unlike your neighborhood church throwing Super Bowl parties to impress your carnal mind, God converts sinners, giving them a new nature as He has mercy on whom He wills and whom He wills, He hardens.

Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

In real life, the empty tomb is there, the place where the temple stood that Jesus said would be destroyed. The Bible says in the last days there will be mockers, men will be lovers of themselves, etc. Those who desire to live godly lives are persecuted in some way, evil men and imposters grow worse and worse.
Research how the apostles died, tell me what you find prior to your next foolish statement, tell me if you'd endure that to defend your atheism.

Yes, I could see how that would be the conclusion of someone who's never read the Bible. Your willfull ignorance doesn't excuse the fact that you will stand before the Lord Jesus Christ, but you assume that by mocking and denying the truth, it goes away.
Jesus said "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words never will" Consider how many revisions the average textbook goes through, yet the Bible's truth is unchanging. Every prophesy has been fulfilled exactly as prophesied, the apostles suffered immense persecution as Jesus said they would. Believers today suffer immense persecution and testify of being radically transformed by the power of the gospel.
I bear personal testimony of the gospel's transforming power. I was full of cursing and bitterness, envy, and perverted lust, but God has transformed me and though I am not perfectly sinless, nor will I be in this lifetime, I thank God that He's redeemed me from the depths of my sinfulness, so the idea of the Bible being fiction is completely foolish. You mock a holy God and praise a beverage brand, while cursing the God who gave and sustains your life. Repent and believe on Jesus Christ.

You can hate the truth, that doesn't change it, fact is God, who is infinitely holy commands all men everywhere to repent. You're a slave to sin and serve the desires of your master, the devil, as I once did, but have been set free by the power of Jesus Christ, who took on flesh and endured the wrath of God on behalf of sinners. You hate a man for proclaiming that truth and defend those who encourage human sacrifice to their false gods (I'm almost certain, you can't deny this)
As it is written:
There is none righteous, no, not one; There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God.
They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one.
Their throat is an open tomb; With their tongues they have practiced deceit; The poison of asps is under their lips
Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness
Their feet are swift to shed blood;
Destruction and misery are in their ways;
And the way of peace they have not known.
There is no fear of God before their eyes. Romans 3:10-18

You are condemned and awaiting judgement, I assure you it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. John 3:18-20

Your god is the god of this evil age, not the one true god, it's obvious that you're faithful to him, but I warn you, he'll be cast into the lake of fire at the judgement throne of Jesus Christ, along with everyone not written in the book of life. Repent of your sins and turn to Christ, the one who has the power to cast body and soul into hell, whom you've mocked your entire life, in spite of the fact that He's given you life and can take it away in an instant. Before you say "oh you're trying to scare me into believing", consider the fact that false converts will be cast into the lake of fire, many of whom go to church and appear to be godly. So unless you be converted, you will suffer the wrath of God that abides on you currently.
Jesus Christ, the sinless Son of God took on human flesh, was born into the world He had made of a virgin in a stinking stable, was despised and rejected by those who claim to serve God. He performed miracles, clearly seen by multitudes of healing, casting out demons, raising the dead. He was betrayed by one of His disciples, suffered the wrath of God at the hands of sinners and rose from the grave to be the mediator for all who will believe on Him. Why couldn't God just forgive people without Christ's suffering?, because that would make God unjust. Because God is good, He must punish every bit of evil. Because God is eternal, the offense is greater. If a boy lies to his teacher, he gets a 0, he lies to his parents, he gets grounded, lies to police, he gets arrested, but all sin is against an infinitely holy God. There's no neutral ground with God, you're either a savant of God having been saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, or His enemy.

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Christ died for the ungodly that would later repent and believe on Him and one is saved by trusting Him alone, not "good" deeds, not reforming one's behavior, not repeating a prayer, not being baptized, no by faith alone in Jesus Christ. I suggest you start with reading the Bible. By mocking Christianity on a Christian site, you waste your life, which is as a vapor in comparison to eternity. I speak as one raised on the religion of the age along with some Christian teaching, who held to being a Christian and repeated tons of prayers, but God saved this religionists out of his sin, out of his bondage to pornography, I don't say that as a sob story, but as praise to the all powerful God, who is gracious to whomever He wills to be, not because of my so-called good deeds, but in spite of them. To God alone be the glory and He will be glorified in either saving you for Himself or casting you into the lake of fire. If you could but get a glimpse of His infinite worth and how you a finite creature have insulted Him. Repent and trust the Lord Jesus Christ. Have no confidence in yourself. You must be born again, by the sovereign grace of our Lord Jesis Christ.

This man is violating his role as a principal, doesn't he know there's a separation between church and state? Or maybe, he recognizes that God is sovereign and we ought to obey Him rather than men.

AfD politicians #fundie dw.com

AfD leaders and their most offensive remarks

Leading members of the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party have often made provocative, if not outright offensive, remarks - targeting refugees or evoking Nazi terminology.

Alexander Gauland

Co-chairman Alexander Gauland said the German national soccer team's defender Jerome Boateng (Submitter's note: Boateng is half-Ghanaian) might be appreciated for his performance on the pitch - but people would not want "someone like Boateng as a neighbor." He also argued Germany should close its borders and said of an image showing a drowned refugee child: "We can't be blackmailed by children's eyes."

Alice Weidel

Alice Weidel generally plays the role of "voice of reason" for the far-right populists, but she, too, is hardly immune to verbal miscues. Welt newspaper, for instance, published a 2013 memo allegedly from Weidel in which she called German politicians "pigs" and "puppets of the victorious powers in World War II. Weidel initially claimed the mail was fake, but now admits its authenticity.

Frauke Petry

German border police should shoot at refugees entering the country illegally, the former co-chair of the AfD told a regional newspaper in 2016. Officers must "use firearms if necessary" to "prevent illegal border crossings." Communist East German leader Erich Honecker was the last German politician who condoned shooting at the border.

Björn Höcke

The head of the AfD in the state of Thuringia made headlines for referring to Berlin's Holocaust memorial as a "monument of shame" and calling on the country to stop atoning for its Nazi past. The comments came just as Germany enters an important election year - leading AfD members moved to expel Höcke for his remarks.

Beatrix von Storch

Initially, the AfD campaigned against the euro and bailouts - but that quickly turned into anti-immigrant rhetoric. "People who won't accept STOP at our borders are attackers," the European lawmaker said. "And we have to defend ourselves against attackers."

Marcus Pretzell

Pretzell, former chairman of the AfD in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and husband to Frauke Petry, wrote "These are Merkel's dead," shortly after news broke of the deadly attack on the Berlin Christmas market in December 2016.

Andre Wendt

The member of parliament in Germany's eastern state of Saxony made waves in early 2016 with an inquiry into how far the state covers the cost of sterilizing unaccompanied refugee minors. Thousands of unaccompanied minors have sought asylum in Germany, according to the Federal Association for Unaccompanied Minor Refugees (BumF) - the vast majority of them young men.

Andre Poggenburg

Poggenburg, head of the AfD in the eastern state of Saxony-Anhalt, has also raised eyebrows with extreme remarks. In February 2017, he urged other lawmakers in the state parliament to join measures against the extreme left-wing in order to "get rid of, once and for all, this rank growth on the German racial corpus" - the latter term clearly derived from Nazi terminology.

Alexander Gauland - again ...

During a campaign speech in Eichsfeld in August 2017, AfD election co-candidate Alexander Gauland said that Social Democrat parliamentarian Aydan Özoguz should be "disposed of" back to Anatolia. The German term, "entsorgen," raised obvious parallels to the imprisonment and killings of Jews and prisoners of war under the Nazis.

... and again

Gauland was roundly criticized for a speech he made to the AfD's youth wing in June 2018. Acknowledging Germany's responsibility for the crimes of the Nazi era, he went on to say Germany had a "glorious history and one that lasted a lot longer than those damned 12 years. Hitler and the Nazis are just a speck of bird shit in over 1,000 years of successful German history."

ScaliaAlito #fundie answers.yahoo.com

Hi! You allege Leviticus 18:10,17 countenances polygamy and pedophilia. You then use that as the backdrop for arguing that ministers who preach against homosexuality from Leviticus 18 are inconsistent and, hence, wrong about homosexuality.

Your argument is flawed because you're attempting to refute a claim by attacking the consistency of some ministers. A claim or argument is independent of its proponents' consistency or lack thereof. When you attack the person, his/her argument is left alone and, consequently, unaddressed. This is known as the ad-hominem fallacy. In short, your argument is completely irrelevant to whether the Bible teaches against homosexuality.

Leviticus 18:22 clearly teaches against homosexual acts and that message is plain REGARDLESS what the other verses teach.

That being said, the verses you cite DO NOT teach what you allege:

Lev. 18:10: The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is thine own nakedness.

This is a proscription of intrafamilial intercourse. As such, there is NO implication or explication for pedophilia. You assert an implication unwarranted by the text. It is unwarranted because we are not told how old these "grandchildren" are. One cannot legitimately read into the text what it does not say. Let's say you're a single grandparent. The BIble prohibits you from marrying your grandchild, but it doesn't prohibit you from marrying in general; and, mind you, anybody else you DO marry will be somebody's grandchild, regardless his age.

Lev. 18:17: Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son's daughter, or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness.

Again, we're not told the age of these sons and daughters, so it is incorrect to assume they are seven or eight years old. The Hebrew words used here are used elsewhere in the Bible to include *adult* children as well as prepubescent ones. This DOES NOT say God likes polygamy nor does it say He countenances it. You're again turning a proscription into an endorsement which is to read into the text what it does not say.

The "fundamentalist" teaching on homosexuality is far more comprehensive than you indicate in your question. They use many verses from the Old & New Testaments and the laws of nature when teaching on that subject.

Feel free to email me if you'd like to discuss this further.

Best wishes,
Scalia

**Edit**

Since you clarified what answer you're looking for, I shall add to this post what I've sent you via email...

As I stated, our doctrine is based upon Scriptural teaching and the Natural Law (since God is the Author of nature). God designed human beings with the ability to reproduce only after physical maturity. Since sex is designed primarily for procreation (see Genesis 1 & 2), you cannot procreate with children. The Natural Law forbids sexual relations with children and God's word ONLY countenances heterosexual marriage between one man and one woman.

Gen. 2:24. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Mt.19:4-5...4. And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5. And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?

Notice, marriage is between one man and one woman. The only sexual relationship countenanced in the Bible is the marital one:

Heb. 13:4. Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

You are incorrect to say God allows pedophilia. I've offered you a rational argument. If you disagree, please give me a rational reason why.

With respect to a *specific* Scriptural reference against pedophilia, none is needed. The Bible clearly teaches what marriage is and that any sexual relationship outside of marriage is sin. No specific verse is needed in this case.

There are many things the Bible teaches against without specifically naming the practice. For example, Christ taught that any man looking upon a woman with lust has committed adultery in his heart. This is sufficient to teach against pornography and similar forms of "entertainment." There were many forms of sexual entertainment in the Roman Empire, but very few of them, if any, are mentioned in the Bible. This verse, along with similar ones, is more than sufficient to proscribe that behavior.

Paedophile here. Contrary to popular belief being a paedophile doesn't suddenly make you into some kind of monster who has an irresistible urge (or any urge whatsoever for that matter) to molest children. I am a normal person like any one of you and like most people I have a very healthy moral code. There is no inner battle within me on whether or not I should go rape a child. Like any sane person I recognise that doing so would be one of the most reprehensible acts I could ever do.

I go on google image search and find normal pictures of clothed cute little girls and then I fantasise and jack off to them. That's it. Nobody gets hurt and I am not going to apologise for it. My fantasies are not about some kind of horrible rape either but about consensual encounters (and I know that's not something that can happen in the real world, don't worry).

I also oppose the notion that paedophiles should seek therapy. I suppose you should do that if you feel you are a danger to kids but I think most paedophiles simply know that they aren't, so it's not a problem. Any person who actually molests children is probably not just a paedophile but also a sociopath and probably doesn't want help either way.

I do not and have never seen my paedophilia as a problem. I would not opt out of it if I could. I enjoy my fantasies a great deal and they give me a sense of beauty and pleasure I would not want to give up. You normal people, ask yourself if you would want to give up your attraction to adult women/men, or do you in fact love being aroused by them?

My dream is that I'll live long enough to see the invention of matrix-like simulations where I can have sex with virtual children. Most likely I'll die long before such a thing is invented. But hey, I'm OK with that. You take what you can get. Maybe a child sex doll at some point? Either way, it is surprisingly easy to not rape kids. Really. People who do that have much bigger problems than being a paedophile


-

completely understand you, but I don't see why you wouldn't want to opt out if you could.

You compare it with "normal people" giving up their attraction to adult women/men. I don't think you can compare it that easily, because we can have an actual relationship with an adult woman/man if we want to, while you can't have one with children.

TL;DR I accept, but don't understand you


I should say that I am also attracted to adult women. However if I had to chose to get rid of one part of my sexuality it would be adults. I'm a forever alone guy anyway so it wouldn't change much, I'm not bathing in pussy by any means.

As for why, I guess the pedo sexuality simply feels richer than the adult one. I like both girls and women physically (appearance wise). But girls have the added benefit of their cuteness and innocence, and the terrible terrible taboo of it just makes it more exciting. Women feel boring in comparison.

If you still don't understand me, think of it like this. Some guy only likes 2 types of music. Iron Maiden and Mozart. He hates all other music. Out of those two he likes Mozart more. He has to get rid of one of them though. If he keeps liking Iron Maiden he can go to their concerts because they are still alive. Mozart he can only listen to from his record player however. But he likes Mozart much more than he likes Iron Maiden. He could never give up Mozart because the thought of never getting to listen to those symphonies again feels terrible. Like a great loss of beauty that has come to define him as a person.

Hope that helps.

I'm Gay and I Oppose Same-Sex Marriage

While religion and tradition have led many to their positions on same-sex marriage, it’s also possible to oppose same-sex marriage based on reason and experience.

“I know in my heart that man is good, that what is right will always eventually triumph, and there is purpose and worth to each and every life.” These words, spoken by Ronald Reagan in 1991, are framed on the wall above my desk. As a gay man, I’ve adopted them as my own, as I’ve entered the national discussion on same-sex marriage.

I wholeheartedly support civil unions for gay and lesbian couples, but I am opposed to same-sex marriage. Because activists have made marriage, rather than civil unions, their goal, I am viewed by many as a self-loathing, traitorous gay. So be it. I prefer to think of myself as a reasoning, intellectually honest human being.

The notion of same-sex marriage is implausible, yet political correctness has made stating the obvious a risky business. Genderless marriage is not marriage at all. It is something else entirely.

Opposition to same-sex marriage is characterized in the media, at best, as clinging to “old-fashioned” religious beliefs and traditions, and at worst, as homophobia and hatred.

I’ve always been careful to avoid using religion or appeals to tradition as I’ve approached this topic. And with good reason: Neither religion nor tradition has played a significant role in forming my stance. But reason and experience certainly have.

Learning from Experience

As a young man, I wasn’t strongly inclined toward marriage or fatherhood, because I knew only homosexual desire.

I first recognized my strong yearning for men at age eight, when my parents took me to see The Sound of Music. While others marveled at the splendor of the Swiss Alps displayed on the huge Cinerama screen, I marveled at the uniformed, blond-haired Rolfe, who was seventeen going on eighteen. That proclivity, once awakened, never faded.

During college and throughout my twenties, I had many close friends who were handsome, athletic, and intelligent, with terrific personalities. I longed to have an intimate relationship with any and all of them. However, I enjoyed something far greater, something which surpassed carnality in every way: philia (the love between true friends)—a love unappreciated by so many because eros is promoted in its stead.

I wouldn’t have traded the quality of my relationships with any of these guys for an opportunity to engage in sex. No regrets. In fact, I always felt like the luckiest man on the planet. Denial didn't diminish or impoverish my life. It made my life experience richer.

Philia love between men is far better, far stronger, and far more fulfilling than erotic love can ever be. But society now promotes the lowest form of love between men while sabotaging the higher forms. Gay culture continues to promote the sexualization of all (viewing one’s self and other males primarily as sexual beings), while proving itself nearly bankrupt when it comes to fostering any other aspect of male/male relationships.

When all my friends began to marry, I began to seriously consider marriage for the first time. The motive of avoiding social isolation may not have been the best, but it was the catalyst that changed the trajectory of my life. Even though I had to repress certain sexual desires, I found marriage to be extremely rewarding.

My future bride and I first met while singing in a youth choir. By the time I popped the question, we had become the very best of friends. “Soul mates” is the term we used to describe each other.

After a couple of years of diligently trying to conceive, doctors informed us we were infertile, so we sought to adopt. That became a long, arduous, heartbreaking process. We ultimately gave up. I had mixed emotions—disappointment tempered by relief.

Out of the blue, a couple of years after we resigned ourselves to childlessness, we were given the opportunity to adopt.

A great shock came the day after we brought our son home from the adoption agency. While driving home for lunch, I was suddenly overcome with such emotion that I had to pull the car off to the side of the road. Never in my life had I experienced such pure, distilled joy and sense of purpose. I kept repeating, “I’m a dad,” over and over again. Nothing else mattered. I knew exactly where I fit in within this huge universe. When we brought home his brother nearly two years later, I was prepared: I could not wait to take him up in my arms and declare our kinship and my unconditional love and irrevocable responsibility for him.

Neither religion nor tradition turned me into a dedicated father. It was something wonderful from within—a great strength that has only grown with time. A complete surprise of the human spirit. In this way and many others, marriage—my bond with the mother of my children—has made me a much better person, a person I had no idea I had the capacity to become.

Intellectual Honesty and Surprise Conclusions

Unfortunately, a few years later my marriage ended—a pain known too easily by too many. At this point, the divorce allowed me to explore my homosexuality for the first time in my life.

At first, I felt liberated. I dated some great guys, and was in a couple of long-term relationships. Over several years, intellectual honesty led me to some unexpected conclusions: (1) Creating a family with another man is not completely equal to creating a family with a woman, and (2) denying children parents of both genders at home is an objective evil. Kids need and yearn for both.

It took some doing, but after ten years of divorce, we began to pull our family back together. We have been under one roof for over two years now. Our kids are happier and better off in so many ways. My ex-wife, our kids, and I recently celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas together and agreed these were the best holidays ever.

Because of my predilections, we deny our own sexual impulses. Has this led to depressing, claustrophobic repression? No. We enjoy each other’s company immensely. It has actually led to psychological health and a flourishing of our family. Did we do this for the sake of tradition? For the sake of religion? No. We did it because reason led us to resist selfish impulses and to seek the best for our children.

And wonderfully, she and I continue to regard each other as “soul mates” now, more than ever.

Over the last couple of years, I’ve found our decision to rebuild our family ratified time after time. One day as I turned to climb the stairs I saw my sixteen-year-old son walk past his mom as she sat reading in the living room. As he did, he paused and stooped down to kiss her and give her a hug, and then continued on. With two dads in the house, this little moment of warmth and tenderness would never have occurred. My varsity-track-and-football-playing son and I can give each other a bear hug or a pat on the back, but the kiss thing is never going to happen. To be fully formed, children need to be free to generously receive from and express affection to parents of both genders. Genderless marriages deny this fullness.

There are perhaps a hundred different things, small and large, that are negotiated between parents and kids every week. Moms and dads interact differently with their children. To give kids two moms or two dads is to withhold from them someone whom they desperately need and deserve in order to be whole and happy. It is to permanently etch “deprivation” on their hearts.

Rich Versus Diminished Lives

Sexuality is fluid for many, and much more complex than many want to acknowledge. Gay and straight activists alike pretend this isn’t true in order to fortify their positions. If they fail to maintain that mirage, fundraising for their organizations might dry up, as would the requests for television and radio interviews. Yet the “B” in the middle of “LGBT” acknowledges an important reality concerning our human sexuality.

Here’s a very sad fact of life that never gets portrayed on Glee or Modern Family: I find that men I know who have left their wives as they’ve come out of the closet often lead diminished, and in some cases nearly bankrupt, lives—socially, familially, emotionally, and intellectually. They adjust their entire view of the world and their role within it in order to accommodate what has become the dominant aspect of their lives: their homosexuality. In doing so, they trade rich lives for one-dimensional lives. Yet this is what our post-modern world has taught us to do. I went along with it for a long while, but slowly turned back when I witnessed my life shrinking and not growing.

What Now?

In our day, prejudice against gays is just a very faint shadow of what it once was. But the abolition of prejudice against gays does not necessarily mean that same-sex marriage is inevitable or optimal. There are other avenues available, none of which demands immediate, sweeping, transformational legislation or court judgments.

We are in the middle of a fierce battle that is no longer about rights. It is about a single word, “marriage.”

Two men or two women together is, in truth, nothing like a man and a woman creating a life and a family together. Same-sex relationships are certainly very legitimate, rewarding pursuits, leading to happiness for many, but they are wholly different in experience and nature.

Gay and lesbian activists, and more importantly, the progressives urging them on, seek to redefine marriage in order to achieve an ideological agenda that ultimately seeks to undefine families as nothing more than one of an array of equally desirable “social units,” and thus open the door to the increase of government’s role in our lives.

And while same-sex marriage proponents suggest that the government should perhaps just stay out of their private lives, the fact is, now that children are being engineered for gay and lesbian couples, a process that involves multiple other adults who have potential legal custody claims on these children, the potential for government’s involvement in these same-sex marriage households is staggering.

Solomon only had to split the baby in two. In the future, judges may have to decide how to split children into three, four, or five equal pieces. In Florida, a judge recently ordered that the birth certificate of a child must show a total of three parents—a lesbian couple and a gay man (the sperm-providing hairdresser of one of the lesbian moms). Expect much more of this to come.

Statists see great value in slowly chipping away at the bedrock of American culture: faith and family life. The more that traditional families are weakened in our daily experience by our laws, the more that government is able to freely insert itself into our lives in an authoritarian way. And it will.

Mark Regnerus, a sociologist at the University of Texas at Austin, recently said, “I think you can have social stability without many intact families, but it’s going to be really expensive and it's going to look very ‘Huxley-Brave New World-ish.’ So [the intact family is] not only the optimal scenario … but it’s the cheapest. How often in life do you get the best and the cheapest in the same package?”

Marriage is not an elastic term. It is immutable. It offers the very best for children and society. We should not adulterate nor mutilate its definition, thereby denying its riches to current and future generations.

Minister R. A. Artis #fundie books.google.com

Jonathan looked at the being that had just said his name was Lucifer, the enemy of mankind. The still vulnerable youngster stood in absolute shock and disbelief. Lucifer observed the young man intently, knowing that his mind was trying desperately to ascertain the gravity of his presence along with what he had just told him. Being the absolute master of conniving deception and charisma, Lucifer set in motion his devious scheme to coerce the boy to his dark light and vision.
Smiling magnanimously, Lucifer placed his hand on Jonathan’s shoulder and, with a quiet compassion, said, “I know this sounds incredible, Jonathan, but everything you hold dear is comprised of half-truths and carefully disguised lies.” Glowing with an ethereal luminance, Lucifer continued, “Let me explain from the beginning…”
“The world from which we abide is called Nahash, located around the star you call Alnilam, the center star in the belt of the constellation Orion. Our world developed our intelligence billions of years before yours, and we achieved a level of development where we evolved into pure energy. Our thoughts could be translated into whatever we could conceive. One of us achieved a power and intelligence greater than all and began to reshape the cosmos into his image. He became so powerful he was able to contract the entire universe into one small infinitesimally dense microscopic singularity and release all that enormous energy in what you call the ‘Big Bang.’ This enabled him to reform the universe as he saw fit. His name is Yahweh, the being you refer to as God.”
Jonathan was rocked to the core of his being as he interrupted Lucifer’s explanation, “Wait one moment! You mean to tell me that Yahweh, though powerful, may not be the God we hold as the Supreme Creator?!”
Smiling at the deductive reasoning and high intelligence the young man showed, Lucifer continued, “That is correct, Jonathan. Yahweh is indeed powerful and to you he may appear to be omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent, but, in essence he is not God in the sense you perceive God. In the vastness of creation, there are levels of omnipotence that you cannot conceive of in your present stage of development. There are many dimensions of existence in what is called the multiverse which is housed within the omniverse, the conceptual ensemble of all possible universes with all possible laws of physics. Yahweh is only the present manifestation of the Creator Force of this universe. There is, however, a being that is known to those who have attained a certain level of awareness who is the essence and intelligence of the omniverse, and he is referred to as the One Above All.”
“Let me continue, the One Above All decreed that all universes and realities be created, destroyed, and re-created in an eternally repetitive series of cycles for reasons known only to Him. Yahweh decided that instead of being the avatar of the One Above All, he would separate this universe from Himself and create his own cosmos with his own rules. The first thing Yahweh did was to create a pocket dimension he called Heaven, located in the recesses of the Northern quadrant of this universe. He then took the rest of the Nahashians and made them into the hierarchy of angelic beings. I was the first evidence of his creative genius, and he made me the epitome of his splendor, power, and wisdom. I and the rest of the host spent countless eons worshipping Yahweh as matter and time coalesced into its present form.”
“Yahweh then turned his attention to Earth and saw that one of the primitive ape-like creatures had unlimited intelligence and genetic potential. He wanted me to experiment on them. This experimentation took millions of years until I finally created Homo sapiens, who were designed from the very essence of Yahweh. Yahweh was so impressed with my handiwork he imbued man with a fraction of his divine spark that gave man a soul. This surprised and shocked many of the angels, as well as myself, who were confused as to the reason why Yahweh wanted to have created this new race of beings.
“Yahweh gave no reason only that we should be patient and trust him and for a time this was sufficient. However, I discovered that Yahweh intended for man to be a race of slaves, and I did not want this for I had become fond of man. I vehemently criticized Yahweh’s plan, accusing him of lacking vision and benevolence. I decided to collect evidence to persuade Yahweh that humanity deserved to be free to discover their place in the universe and to reach their own potential without the encumbering laws he had created to bind humanity to his oppressive will.
“You see, Jonathan, Yahweh desired all humanity to be his slaves and ignorant to the truth that freedom from his laws bring. I, on the other hand, desired man to have knowledge of self and have his mind opened to realization of that knowledge. Yahweh and I became estranged because of this ideological conflict and so, when in the Garden of Eden, where humanity’s primordial parents, Adam and Eve, the first of Homo sapiens, were told not to eat of the Tree of Knowledge, which was not an actual fruit but a metaphor for forbidden knowledge. Yahweh kept this information hidden from them like in the legend of Prometheus, who stole fire from the gods to give to man. I informed them that their nakedness represented Yahweh’s desire to keep them enslaved because of the threat they represented.
“Yahweh knew that one day man would become as powerful as Himself, and they would become a threat to His reign. Adam and Eve felt degraded by this revelation, and they rebelled against Yahweh who punished them by introducing death, pain, and suffering into the universe to keep them imprisoned to his will. Yahweh then made me the perpetrator of this egregious crime and formulated the legend of Satan and the birth of evil.”
“By this time, the barrier between Yahweh and me had become a full-fledged war, and a third of Heaven had taken up my cause to liberate man. I challenged Yahweh that he was far too removed from man to see how pain and anguish motivated Him to strive for meaning to His mortal existence. I demanded that if He truly wished to understand Himself then He should take human form. Angered by this, Yahweh chose to replicate himself and created Jesus Christ, whom He endowed with all His power. Jesus was fully human at the same time. I challenged Yahweh to experience human passions and desires through Jesus, and this He did by becoming familiar with the mortality of suffering and eventual death. I was awed and shocked by Yahweh’s decision to allow Jesus to die, supposedly as a sacrifice for man’s ‘transgression’ in the Garden of Eden; however, the truth of the matter was— and is— Jesus’ sacrifice was in vain.
“You see, the human spirit is so powerful that at death it resides either in an unconscious state within the body or in an extradimensional limbo. Some await rebirth, while those select few who have lived extraordinary lives are granted oneness with the One Above All, to exist eternally as part of the living spiritual intelligence of the omniverse. Jesus’ sacrifice to atone for sin was another clever ruse to keep humankind enslaved to the will of Yahweh. You see, unlike a regular human, when Jesus, who was Yahweh in human form, died on the cross, He knew that he would survive and thus could never have known the true suffering of man. Man does not know his soul will survive. It suffers, and in this ambiguity, man is granted a gift which Yahweh does not understand: the passion to cling to life and the strength that mortality affords you. Yahweh knew He would survive death and could not truly know what it was to be human.”
Lucifer decided it was time to twist the truth a little more in order to place another shred of doubt in Jonathan’s mind.
Feigning reluctance, Lucifer took a deep breath and vehemently said, “What I am about to divulge to you, Jonathan, is known only to very few. And if Yahweh knew I was telling you this He would most certainly destroy you. Heaven is not what you think. Yahweh created it in an effort to shield his presence from the One Above All and developed the myth that all human souls would subject themselves to his servitude. He formulated that they would abide there with Him after the death of their corporeal forms. The truth is, the only entities present in Heaven are those angelic Nahashians who are in Yahweh’s service, and Hell is another scare tactic He uses to keep his victims enslaved. Heaven and Hell can be on Earth and is how you live your life, Jonathan. You can either live your life a slave to the whims and wishes of a cruel and brutish god, or you can choose to have the blinders lifted from your eyes and see the light of the truth.”
Drawing himself closer to the young man’s beautiful face, Lucifer compassionately said, “Jonathan, Yahweh knows as well as I that humankind has evolved more quickly than anticipated. The latent abilities we foresaw in you will become evident in less than a generation instead of the centuries we thought, and, you my friend, are one of the first of those blessed to become the next stage of human development.
“Homo sapiens are evolving into gods, capable of all manner of wonders and miracles. Your race will transform the universe and I will help you to do so, for this is my desire, to help humans become like me and exist as independent entities, enslaved by no one. I will lead you to your glorious future and together we will topple Yahweh’s destructive and self-serving regime!”
Pleadingly, Lucifer reached out his hand to Jonathan and beseeched him, “Will you help me, Jonathan? Will you take your place at my side and expose Yahweh for what He is?”
Jonathan reeled from the sheer magnitude of all that he had heard and seen as he contemplated everything Lucifer had told him. Was it true that Yahweh was some sort of super alien being and everything he had learned concerning him was a lie designed to keep man from achieving his destiny? Was it Lucifer and not Christ the Messiah who was and Savior of mankind? Was it his destiny to help expose the truth of this to the world?
The young man sighed as he said as if he was weighed down by the entire world’s problems compounded doubly, “This is all so fantastic. I don’t know what to think, or do. I have to consider what to do with all that you have told me.”
Smiling graciously, Lucifer said, “I understand Jonathan. I realize I have placed a tremendous burden on you, but remember, fate rarely calls upon us at a time of our choosing, yet when it does, will you be ready? I will not force you Jonathan. You will have to decide for yourself what to do with what I have told you. Truth is a dangerous thing my friend, for once you have learned from it, you can never go back to who you were. Stay blind and in darkness and remain a slave, or take what I given you and free the world.”
Lucifer slowly disappeared and said in passing, “When the time comes, I shall return unto you and it will be then you will chose either to stand with me or against me. Farewell, until then …”
The sound of Lucifer’s voice echoed into the night sky as he vanished from sight and left Jonathan alone on the shores of Loch Ness.
The Scotland summer wind wafted over the waters of the famous lake and drifted over Jonathan, caressing his body with its warm light touch, as he tried desperately to make sense of what had just transpired. His entire world had been turned upside down and the teachings he had once held dear may all be a part of a carefully conceived lie invented by an immensely powerful alien who wished to maintain a dictatorial hold on humankind in order to prevent them from evolving into a super race that had the potential to bring his tyrannical rule to an end and restore the universe to the care of the One Above All, if everything Lucifer had told him was true. In his mind, Jonathan thought that this was all some form of hallucination, but if it was, then what caused it? He knew in his rational mind that this was indeed a true and real occurrence, but to what purpose? He was well aware that his gifts and talents made him stand apart, but was he so exceptional that he merited the attention of not only God, but that of Lucifer as well? Was Lucifer truly the evil entity he was portrayed to be, or was he indeed the being who truly created humans and the true Savior of mankind? Was he the benefactor of human civilization and not the perpetrator of malevolence and wickedness history showed him to be? These questions and many, many more raced through his mind as he looked over the waters of Loch Ness. The words which Lucifer spoke to him were the most compelling declarations he had ever heard and they carried a ring of truth, but, like strong black coffee, there was a bitterness that hung over him. Had Lucifer told him the truth or was he being the consummate liar he was said to be and was this an attempt to have him become a disciple of iniquity?
Falling to his knees, Jonathan cried out in a loud voice, “God, help me! What am I going to do?! I can’t handle this! It is too much for me to bear!”
The tears that flowed from his eyes dripped down his face and rained upon the ground as he wept in confusion and pain. All of a sudden, the waters of Loch Ness began to churn and great waves were thrown ferociously against the shores and broke Jonathan from his cries to God. The agitation grew more intense as the young man looked in confusion and wonder at what was occurring in front of him. What more could happen to him this night? Suddenly a great serpentine form exploded from the frothing disorder of the waters and released a deafening roar that chilled Jonathan to the very core of his being. Fearfully, Jonathan wondered if this was the famed Loch Ness Monster of legend.

Self-Mutation #fundie iidb.infidels.org

I will be in shock if any evolutionist can seriously answer these questions with answers that actually make sense. (no beating around the bush)

1. If evolution is unguided and is a completely natural process, how does nature "KNOW" which traits are beneficial and which traits are not? For example, how did nature know to make a digestive system and a sewage system for the removal of our bodily wastes? Did these systems just "pop up" out of nowhere in organisms? Or did organisms start out with half-systems and couldn't remove waste and digest food? If the latter is the case, how did organisms ever survive long enough to reproduce?

2. It is often said by evolutionists that we have certain traits because they make us survive better. For example, we have eyebrows because it keeps things out of our eyes. (This is said as if nature actually KNOWS it's keeping stuff out of our eyes and decided to stick with eyebrows.)

But, if we really do have certain traits because it makes us survive better, why didn't we evolve immunity to fire? Surely if we had the ability to not be harmed by fire, it would be a HUGE survival advantage to our species. But, we do not see this despite the fact that evolutionists say that evolution works to give us traits to survive better. We are immune to other certain types of things. Immunity to fire would've been a huge survival advantage, don't you think?

3. if nature doesn't "know" anything and is unguided, how does our body know when something bad is being put into it to cause us to cough? If nature was unguided, there should be no reason why our body "knows" we have to cough. How does nature know what is good and bad?

4. If surviving more efficiently is one of the main purposes of evolution, why do so many people get heart disease? Shouldn't we have evolved to a point by now where fatty foods don't harm us because it would make us survive longer and better? Right now, fatty foods can kill you and give you a heart attack if you eat it too much. Some survival advantage that is for us, huh? If we all had the ability to eat any type of food we wanted without getting heart disease, that would be an even GREATER survival advantage, don't you think?

Yet, in spite of all these objections, evolutionists will INSIST that evolution gives us traits to be able to survive better. I guess evolution doesn't see a need for us to REALLY be able to survive better considering we can burn in fire and die from too much eating.

So, how did evolution know how to build a digestive system, a sewage system, and a sexual system? Even if all these systems started out as tiny specks and half-systems, how did evolution and natural selection specifically KNOW how to straighten it all out into what we see today?

Anna Rountree #fundie mobile.facebook.com

After we arrived in Paradise, I found that I was sitting alone near a clear, round pool of water. On the opposite side of the pool, shrubbery was growing in geometric shapes—squares, rectangles, triangles, and circles. These shapes were reflected perfectly within the pool. Stacte was blooming behind the geometric shrubs. Each of these bushes was covered with waxy white blossoms that gave a mild, pleasant fragrance. I remembered that stacte was a spice used in the holy incense. But I could not remember the meaning inherent in its name. It was unusually still by the pool, like being in the eye of a hurricane. I swung my legs around, putting my feet into the water. They hardly made a ripple. Strange.
“Where am I?” I asked aloud.
“The pool of reflection,” a child’s voice answered from behind me.

CRYSTAL CLEAR

“Uh oh,” I said within myself because I recognized the voice. “Crystal Clear,” I smiled faintly as I turned to face her. There she stood, her hair still tousled as if from play. She was wearing the same pale shift and pinafore. She looked five or six years of age. However, she had old eyes. At times I could see through her arm or leg. She was a spirit. “You have come back to see us,” she exclaimed cheerily. “We L-O-V-E, love you,” she continued, spelling out the word love as if it were in a child’s song.

I sighed painfully within myself as I remembered the last time I had seen her. “But,” I thought, “perhaps this time will be different.” I decided to ask her about the pool. “What is the pool of reflection?”
“It is a place where you can see yourself very clearly,” she said.
I was not sure that I liked that idea. “Does one wish to reflect upon oneself?” I asked coolly, my flesh suddenly rising up and being as sly, legalistic, and evasive as the flesh always is.
She continued as though she did not notice. “You might want to take a look to see if you are cooperating with God or resisting Him. Do you want to look into the pool?” she asked brightly.

THE DECISION

Of course I did not want to look into the pool. However, I was beginning to hear in my own voice, as well as in the hardness of my heart, my resistance to correction.
Shortly before arriving at the pool I was telling the Lord that I would give up anything and everything in order to gain more of Him. Now with my first opportunity to allow this declaration to become experiential in my life, I was balking. “Do you think I should look?” I asked limply.
“It might help,” she replied.

With a sigh I took my feet out of the water and lay down on my stomach to look into the pool. I was amazed. I saw Jesus’s face reflected in the water instead of my own. But there were geometric objects stuck onto His head and face. “What are these objects?” I asked.

“Blocks,” she said. “You are blocking Him. They make the face of Jesus look really ugly.”
“How do I get them off?” I asked with alarm.
She leaned over to look at my face in the pool. “Hmmm,” she said, as if making a diagnosis. “You need to unstick the glue.”
“Unstick the glue?” I asked. “How do I do that?”

REPENTANCE

“Repentance,” she said matter-of-factly.
“Repentance unsticks the glue.”
She pulled back to look at me directly instead of at my reflection. I sat up to look into her face. She shook her head from side to side as children do when correcting one another. Speaking in a slow, singsong manner, she said, “You’re too old to play with blocks.” Before I could answer her, she vanished.

STACTE

The strong smell of stacte flooded the area. I looked at the bushes. The fragrant gum was running down the branches. “Truth with mercy,” I said glumly, remembering now the inherent meaning within the name.

With a sigh I turned back to the pool. I looked into the water again. ‘The face, and therefore the life of Jesus, was definitely blocked from flowing to others. I gathered the courage to look at the blocks more closely. Each had writing on it. I squinted to decipher the lettering.

The BLOCKS

“Hypocrite” was written on one block. “Hypocrite,” I said with self-righteous indignation. Although indignant, I dared not try to refute this because I knew it to be true. ‘That which people on Earth might not see was plainly visible in heaven. Perhaps I might hide this from others, but I could not hide it from myself or from God. “I am a hypocrite”, I said, and You see it. I say that I am doing what I do out of obedience, not caring about the results, but I do care. I care greatly. I want success. I want to feel that I am accomplishing something.” I could not look at that block any longer.

I decided to look at another block. “Money” was written on it. “Oh, no,” I moaned. “Well, it is true. I say that I do not mind being poor, but I mind a great deal. I do not like being poor. I know that to live by faith pleases You, and I want to please You. But truthfully, it is easier to talk about faith than to live by it. At times I think, ‘If I just had enough money, I would never need to think about money again.” My confession made me uneasy. decided to look at another block.

“Being a star” was written on this block. My hands went to my face in embarrassment. True again, I confessed. It is difficult for me to live a hidden life. I want respect. I want honor. I want to be known. I want...” I almost said “glory.” As I confessed this sin, I was struck by the seriousness of it. “God, help mc,” I said. “I want Your glory” I shook my head. “This is serious, very serious. How have You taken me as far as You have taken me? How can You love me? How can You want me to be Your Son’s bride? In my spirit I know that I want to be on the inside that which I present on the outside. I know that I want to live by faith. I know that pride is a great sin. satan wanted Your glory. How am I better?”

The BLOOD

Saying that galvanized my thinking. “I am in a better place before You, Father, for my Lord and Savior died to release me from the penalty of death due to sin. And I can plead the blood of Jesus before You and ask that You forgive me for every sin, as well as for every transgression. I can proclaim to You that the Holy Spirit was sent to apply the cross to every act of the flesh within me.” I am in a better place.

“Then, Daddy,” I cried, “I ask for correction by the Holy Spirit. I ask for the cross. I ask that I be clean inside and outside. I want the life of Jesus to flow through me unhindered. I mean, Daddy, that I do not want one hindrance. I give You permission to bring me into a pure walk before You. I know it will hurt. I know it. But I give You permission to ignore my whining.”

TEARS

“O God, do not leave me as one dead.” I began to cry. “Forgive me. Wash me clean with the blood of Jesus—He who paid the ultimate price with His shed blood and death on the cross so that I might stand before You clean, in His righteousness.

I continued, “Deal with my flesh. Override my protests. Discount my whimpering. Please, please do not let me go around this mountain one more time. I do not want to live a halfhearted life, compromising at every turn because I do not want the pain of the cross.” I wept bitterly. “And I miss Jesus,” I cried. “I am in pain when we are apart!”

I realized suddenly that a very bright angel was near me catching in an alabaster bottle every tear that I cried. The tears would start down my cheeks and then automatically, obediently even, go into the vial. I was fascinated.

ANGEL OF PRAISE

I was so fixed upon this sight that I jumped a little when my name was called from behind me. It was Judy, the angel of praise.

She was dressed in a gossamer green under tunic bound with a golden girdle. Over this was a deeper green cloak that had long, oversized sleeves. These sleeves contained pockets that held all manner of golden musical instruments. Her neck, hands, and feet had a slight tint of gold. Her auburn hair was plaited into seven loops interlaced with gold. On her forehead was a small golden box, housing Scripture. She began to speak. “Anna, rejoice that you are loved. I am sent to comfort you with the mantle of praise.”

“What is that?” I asked, wiping my eyes with my hand. The bright angel with the vial for tears disappeared.

HYMN OF PRAISE

“Shh,” she said, putting her finger to her lips. “Let me help to calm your soul. Rest.” She became a small, green whirlwind. The wind and movement caused all the instruments within her robe to play together. The sound of praise was so pure that it seemed to draw angels from the air. They gathered in a large circle around her. She began to sing:

O great I AM, Eternal One,
Fountain of life within the Son,
Wellspring of blessing,
Wellspring of light,
Infinite mystery hid from our sight.
Searched by the Spirit,
Revealed through the Son,
Mystery unfolding, though ever begun.
Beginning and ending, great circle of light
That shatters the darkness, confounding the night.
All beauty, all joy, all splendor in One,
His grace freely shared through the life of His Son.
His life and His death and His life evermore,
Though crucified ever, to die nevermore.
All hail, Great Redeemer, All hail, Mighty King
Of Life and of Truth and of Light do we sing.
All praise, adoration, and thanksgiving,
Through time never ending, our homage we’ll bring.

GALBANUM AND CASSIA

As she sang, the aroma of galbanum and cassia filled the air. Galbanum bespeaks worship, adoration, thanksgiving, and praise.’ Cassia urges homage to God alone. I needed both. I needed the idols in my heart to be cast down. Also, I needed to be lifted up, out of myself; through turning my eyes toward Him in praise. Her song was like a mantle dropping upon me—lifting my spirit but settling my soul.

At the end of the song, the many angels that had gathered withdrew discreetly. Judy spoke. “Worship God, Anna. He alone is worthy.” Then she too disappeared.

GOD AT WORK

I was alone again. But the stillness near the pool was no longer a vacuum. It was closer to the stillness within my soul. The Lord had accomplished a work within me, although I did not know the nature of the work or how He had accomplished it. But I felt that I could see more clearly, that in some way I was different. The answer seemed simple. Jesus overcame the flesh when He walked the earth. Now He could overcome the flesh in me. He would work, and I would rest in Him. I felt cleansed, washed, with my soul as still as the round pool before me. However, the stilling of my soul made room for a greater longing for Him. The ache within my spirit had grown painfully acute. I missed Him. I wanted to be with Him. The pain was becoming a wracking hunger......

Seek His Face

When it comes to sexual orientation, abortion, and childhood sexual exploration, the left demands to arbitrate the rules. The problem for the rest of America is that if one dares express an opinion alien to the guidelines set forth by the left or risks imposing moral standards via a chosen lifestyle, liberals focus like a laser on obliterating the offender.

That’s exactly what Josh Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting is living through right now.

Seems that when Josh was a 14-year-old boy, he admitted that he “inexcusably” fondled five girls in their sleep, two of whom were his younger sisters. Riddled with remorse, Josh confessed to his parents what he’d done, and Michelle and Jim Bob chose to handle it by sending him away for a while and then reporting it to the authorities. Charges were not filed.

No one disagrees that a child molesting a child, let alone a sibling, is inappropriate and harmful behavior, but then again, in today’s society, boys fondling girls and even boys fondling boys are common occurrences.

Insincerity enters the debate via those who ordinarily consider underage sex part of normal human development. After all, it was the government agency Health and Human Services that acknowledged sex-play among kids to be part of what they call small children behaving like “Sexual Beings.”

For Josh Duggar, 12 years after the fact, it’s different.

In his case, the group that normally encourages all manner of sexual experimentation is calling for the father of four’s head on a sexual-predator spike. Sorry to have to be the bearer of bad tidings, but if every individual casting a stone was to have the curtain drawn back on his or her antics during puberty, there’d be a whole lot of scribbling in the sand.

Josh lived in a cloistered, homeschooled family environment, but if the eldest Duggar were in an Arkansas public school system and decided to get busy with a girlfriend in the back of someone’s pickup truck, the ones criticizing him now would have surely provided the lad with a condom-on-a-cucumber tutorial. And if need be, had clumsy Josh failed to use the government-issued condom correctly, if given the go-ahead by a judge, some school administrator would gladly have shuttled the object of Josh’s affection to an abortion clinic, with her parents none the wiser.

Speaking of Arkansas, don’t the Duggars hail from the same state as a former president who, as far as we know, never fondled his alleged half-sister Sharon Lee Blythe but was accused by several women of rape, molestation, exposing himself, and preying upon White House interns?

Yet many of Josh’s critics adore America’s infamous saxophone-playing pervert, because letting someone like Bill get away with using a cigar as a sex toy must somehow subdue the sex-induced self-reproach liberals apparently feel.

For Josh, admitting his indiscretions and actually changing his behavior underscores the message that although our weak carnal natures tend toward wanton depravity, and despite attesting faith in Christ, no one is exempt from the need for God’s forgiveness.

Secular liberals can’t have that!


Unlike those who attempt to assuage the guilt of abortion by downgrading babies to fetal tissue, Duggar did not make excuses for his indefensible behavior. He confessed, and he is now willing to suffer the consequences.

Duggar critics argue that Josh’s victims are injured for life and will never recover from the trauma. Hopefully, with time and counseling, that will not be the case.

However, this concern is mouthed by the very people who largely agree with exposing kindergarteners to homosexual marriage, installing safe-school czars who attend conferences that teach unnatural gay sex techniques to schoolchildren, and excusing ex-presidents for frequenting pedophile vacation destinations.

Isn’t it liberals who believe that teaching masturbation is more important than American history? And now America is supposed to believe that those who sexualize five-year-olds from the second they enter school are suddenly wringing their hands with concern for the girls horny Josh infringed upon?

Moreover, when they’re not demanding that a 27-year-old a man be branded a child predator for engaging in inappropriate hormone-induced sexual activity when he was 14, lefties spend their time egging on a sex-obsessed writer/actress who, after being raised by an artist father renowned for depicting distorted female genitalia, described in her memoir perusing her little sister’s privates for hidden pebbles.

The serious nature of child molestation cannot and should not be dismissed. It’s just hard to buy all the liberal outrage, because many of those censuring Josh Duggar are fans of slaughtering 4,000 babies a day, and when it comes to hurting children, these same people are unconcerned about the message it sends kids when cult heroes are made of men transitioning from penis to vagina.

John C. Wright #fundie scifiwright.com

The closest thing the agnostic world-view can produce to a Satan is either a dictator (oddly reminiscent of agnostic himself) a Republican, or a Southerner. Other than that, they can only portray villains who manifest physical dangers, such as ax murderers and serial killers. Because of their philosophy, people who pose real dangers, such as Islamic terrorists, cannot be portrayed at all, but only people who post no danger in real life but instead produce benefits necessary to life and civilization, such as industrialists, merchants, soldiers, priests, mothers who love their children.

Other magnificent villains of the Christian imagination, creatures such as Don Juan or Faustus, cannot be produced by the agnostic imagination. When there is no white field on which the black wolf is outlined, there is nothing for the moral imagination to see.

If your view of the universe includes as its only moral principle to indulge in vacuous, vain, vulgar or perverse pleasures, and if gluttony and lust define your highest ambition of what you call good, and the only evil in your view of the universe is whatever prudence or authority hinders your boring orgy of self-indulgence, and your only foeman is he whose hand hold you back from suicide, then you can imagine only one villain, a father figure or Pharisee, and he can be guilty of only one crime, hypocrisy, the sin of claiming an authority to which he has no right.

Your villain cannot be craven, or intemperate, or unchaste, or foolish with foolish arrogance, since these are the qualities of your hero. (Of course, real hedonist and nihilist authors rarely portray such protagonists as their philosophy would demand: they merely borrow concepts and standards from chivalric Christian ideals or Homeric pagan ideals, employing them out of context, and with perhaps less than perfect artistic integrity.)

So we cannot leave the fantasy world to the clumsy hands of the agnostics and skeptics. By and large, they can write fair to middling satires of fantasy, but they cannot write classics of fantasy. For something greater than satire, we need Christians like Tolkien or pagans like Howard.

Rango, Illuminati and Water


Ok, I am not into Illuminati stuff that much.

I saw this movie, Rango, had nothing in my mind before watching it and as I will explain in this post, from the beginning to the end I saw numerous esoteric symbols. I searched on the web and found nothing remarkable about Rango and Illuminati.

I have to tell you that this is not your usual Illuminati article, revealing some stupid symbols is nothing special. I will try to give you more than that! Let’s start with the symbols in Rango, as I told I am not a specialist in this, probably much more can be found there. First thing I saw in the movie, which also made me look for Illuminati throughout the movie is the name of one of the production companies. It was like I saw a big word “ILLUMINATI” all over the wide screen, the company’s name is: ILLUMINATION ENTERTAINMENT

I went to IMDB to see the companies, also there is this one:
Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) Not only the initials, but also being a Lucasfilm company and having that “enlightening” logo, I think we can have some reasons to suspect. “Industrial”, “Light” and “Magic”, all these words made me more and more suspicious.

After that start, I saw Illuminati, everywhere in the movie, especially this scene was awkward (you can see it above), with a “watching eye” which is not really supposed to be there!

The character Rango is in a search for identity. The movie is about enlightenment of self and the word “enlightenment” is used openly a couple of times in the movie. After some point, he goes to this town, where water is reserved in banks. That is very important, because you should think of any water in the movie as money in real life. So, WATER=MONEY! When you put it like that, it is crazy!

Rattlesnake Jake: [after Beans refuses to sign a deed] Sign the damn paper! Beans: Go to Hell!
Rattlesnake Jake: [wraps Beans in his coils and suspends her upside down] Where do you think I come from?
Well, I think it is obvious that this snake is mentioned to be Satan, also knowing that one of the characters say when he comes, he always takes a “soul”.
Also interesting that, towards the end of the movie Rango is carried by some bugs to meet some spiritual being, just after he crosses the highway to go to “the other side” (in the movie itself, said that it is metaphorical). As soon as I saw that, I just remembered Neo in the last movie of the Matrix trilogy, being carried by machine bugs.

Rango: [from trailer] So you want something to believe in?
[points at the “Sheriff” sign]
Rango: Believe in that there sign. For as long as it hangs there we’ve got hope.
Just before that, Rango tells them once “the order” is gone, they will start to eat each other like “animals”.

The leaders of the town are corrupt and they admit that they were just criminals, but now they are businessmen. There are several moments where the characters make reference to cannibalism, ritual human sacrifice, and various sexual organs.

A turtle rules the town, he has the water. In a scene his men rise up a circle, behind which the sun shines. This turtle is also the one, who brought the rattlesnake to the town. He might be seen as a religious leader. The important thing is he reveals that whoever controls the water, controls the population. As I mentioned above, water=money. So, whoever controls the money, controls the population. That may remind you of the contemporary world. At the end of the movie, water is everywhere, a situation of chaos and anarchy.
Also think that, a small child watching this, will have the idea engraved on his mind that, the money is needed as much as the water. Not only that, he will be thinking, the money is limitless as much as the water and it is useful as much as the water.

There may be tens of symbols you can find there, but I am passing to something much more important.
I am asking you what Illuminati is fighting against?
What is their problem? Why are they doing this?
Why do they not want us to think?
They hate religions. Why? Why would they hate Christians?
My answer is that they do not hate Christianity.
That is what they want us to think! They want us to think that they are against Christianity, putting some crosses here and there in a message giving way. They know that reaction to that is holding the cross, being a Christian. They also now that sometimes, some (so-called) “critical thinking”, “skeptic”, “intelligent” people will say that “It is all a game! It is all crazy, we do not believe in anything!”.
Does that mean, we are so wise to be deceived by Illuminati or some other organisation?
No.
We are just deceived by thinking that.
Now, let us think and see!
Wake up!
Open your eyes!

What religion/belief on the earth has the greatest media campaign against it?
What religion/belief on the earth has the worst references in Hollywood?
What religion/belief, 9/11 was mentioned to destroy?
What religion/belief is the last one to check for someone who is in a search?
What religion/belief is the most hidden one?
The answer is,
The fastest growing religion on the earth.
The answer is ISLAM.
Now, think and ask to yourself, have you ever read anything about this religion?
Did you know that Muslims believe in all prophets, including Jesus(pbuh)?
Did you know that Muslims do not pray to Muhammad(pbuh), they pray only to the only one true God?

Why? Why do not you know?
Now, see!

“Say, ‘Have you considered: if your water was to become sunken [into the earth], then who could bring you flowing water?'”

“I’m in a traditional marriage”
“I’m all for traditional gender roles”
“I want gender norms to be like the old days”

These are refrains I’ve heard endlessly repeated as the discussion over WHITE SHARIA has advanced. They are coming from women and a few weak men counter-signaling the WHITE SHARIA meme.

Because of the critical importance of this discussion for the survival of the white race and its European civilizations, I wanted to take a minute to explain to all the men and women claiming to be so-called traditionalists all the concepts and social boundaries that defined traditional relationships. This is the most important education that I can possibly give the community at this moment, and I ask that you ask yourself if you are really embracing traditionalism like you claim to be.
Coverture

Coverture was the reality for all of European history up until the mid and late 19th century, when feminist agitators, the media, and academic establishment triumphed with their agitations through its abolition. The basic principle of coverture is that the rights of the woman are completely subsumed into that of her husband’s. A married woman could not own property, sign legal documents or enter into a contract, obtain an education against her husband’s wishes, or keep a salary for herself.

William Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England, Volume I:

" The very being or legal existence of the woman is suspended during the marriage, or at least is incorporated and consolidated into that of the husband: under whose wing, protection, and cover, she performs every thing; and is therefore called in our law-French a feme-covert; is said to be covert-baron, or under the protection and influence of her husband, her baron, or lord; and her condition during her marriage is called her coverture."

UCLA gender studies professor Ellen Carol DuBois (whose career is chronicled in the Jewish Women’s Archive, of course) highlighted in her histories of women’s rights “the initial target of women’s rights protest was the legal doctrine of ‘coverture’“, and that 19th century feminist icon Lucy Stone despised the common law of marriage “because it ‘gives the “custody” of the wife’s person to her husband, so that he has a right to her even against herself.‘”

If a woman decided to leave her marriage she was a penniless non-entity no matter what her previous position was in life (truly, there is no better position for an errant whore to be rendered into). Any restoration of traditional gender roles starts by restoring coverture, thus removing financial incentives for worthless scheming whores to destroy the sanctity of marriage by abandoning it over whims and lusts. Marriage, up until the abolition of coverture, meant that the woman was permanent property of one man, allowed continued existence and any degree of freedom only in accordance with his desires.

Bride Price

" The dower grew out of the Germanic practice of bride price (Old English weotuma), which was given over to a bride’s family well in advance for arranging the marriage."

Before a woman was her husband’s property, she was her father’s. This is why the father gives away the bride at the marriage ceremony. Traditional marriage was a transfer of property, with the priest serving the role as the trusted third party to do the background research and make sure the transaction was honest. It was essentially like getting the sale of your apartment validated by a notary. The daughter was sold off by her father, and it was the father’s sole judgement of who was eligible to lawfully purchase his property.

The status of women as property was nearly universal in European cultures, with the exception of Jewry and some groups of gypsies, where access to tithes and trust followed a matrilineal line. This was why the Jews were so keen to attack these ideas, because the patrilineal passing of property was innately offensive to their culture. Europe only has this absurd notion of women as independent entities because of organized subversion by agents of Judaism.
Domestic Discipline and “Marital Rape”

Coverture and bride price were abolished to ridiculously assert women were independent entities with “rights” so that they could lobby for suffrage. The implementation of suffrage culminated in legal penalties for domestic discipline and the concept of marital rape so that women could abandon their most basic household duties, thus destroying their homes and their husbands’s lives. The thing about these changes is that they are really fresh and new. While the 19th century might seem like a long time ago for many of our young readers (it isn’t, on the civilizational timescale it is just last month and on the evolutionary timescale it is mere seconds) these new changes began in the lifetimes of our parents and finished in many of ours, and civilization was immediately and measurably the worse for wear.

Wikipedia:

" The reluctance to criminalize and prosecute marital rape has been attributed to traditional views of marriage, interpretations of religious doctrines, ideas about male and female sexuality, and to cultural expectations of subordination of a wife to her husband—views which continue to be common in many parts of the world. These views of marriage and sexuality started to be challenged in most Western countries from the 1960s and 70s especially by second-wave feminism, leading to an acknowledgment of the woman’s right to self-determination (i.e., control) of all matters relating to her body, and the withdrawal of the exemption or defense of marital rape. … The criminalization of marital rape in the United States started in the mid-1970s and by 1993 marital rape was a crime in all 50 states, under at least one section of the sexual offense codes."

Rape is a property crime and nothing more. First a crime against the property of the father, and then a crime against the property of the husband. This change only finished in the US and UK in the nineties, when I was 8 years old. Women existing in a state of slavery to the sexual whims of their husbands is not some barbarism of prehistory. This was universal common sense for whites up until a couple decades ago.

Likewise, hitting a woman out of her head was seen as benevolent and a universal necessity in every marriage until the sixties, and even portrayed positively in movies and film. Regular slapping and the occasional vicious beating of a woman was a necessity in every household. Women need to be regularly disciplined to keep their heads about them. They can be intellectually mature and clever to the point of deviousness, but they will always have the emotional state of a very young child and we all know what happens when you spare those the rod.

On this subject I hear two narratives from low-T men in the alt-right. The first is that all these transformations in the rights and status of women happened in reaction to family abandonment and general hardships upon women. Even those I respect like My Posting Career’s PLEASUREMAN fall for this sniveling lie from the mouths of manipulative whores. To these I have said: let us examine the data.

...

Broken families happened as a result of these changes in the status of women, not as the cause of them. The reality is that extramarital sex and birth was at an all time historical low because of Victorian standards of morality. The only spikes on that chart before 1950 were a result of world wars, because a man that died in some kike’s war could not marry his whore. Men held up their end of everything. They married women, they provided for them, they gave them newfound comforts and innovations like laundry machines that reduced their domestic workload to nil. They gave them full legal independence, and then they even stopped giving them the basic boundaries of discipline. What did women do with all these new rights and comforts? Well, you see how that graph goes. They whored like never before through the sixties and seventies, and Western civilization has been rotting ever since.

They did this because white men had a fool’s compassion in their hearts and lost the good sense to shove their faces into a countertop and give them a swift kick to the gut as hard as they can when these skanks had it coming to them.
Men Counter-Signaling WHITE SHARIA

So most of this “I’m totally traditionalist but WHITE SHARIA is terrible” nonsense is coming from women, but sometimes it is coming from small-souled bugmen as well. Some of these men are being bullied by their wives. Some of them just have no will to power. Beardson just used this line, and as far as I’m concerned he’s not only no longer the leader of the thot patrol, but no longer eligible to even be on it. We’ll be bullying whores without him from now on.

Here’s the reality of European tradition: women were a category of property that had a single instance of sale. They were complete slaves to the will of fathers then husbands, both having free reign to beat them and the latter having the lawful right to fuck them, where and when they pleased. This was the reality for thousands of years of European history and the change in this status only finished in our and our parent’s lifetimes. There’s nothing Islamic about this. It is just the default position of any civilization that is not being destroyed by decadence. Man up, put women under your heel, throw away their birth control and make them bear you children and take care of your house. If they resist, discipline them.

If you are uncomfortable with the WHITE SHARIA meme because it contains the word sharia, I can understand that, but “muh feels” is not an argument against the efficacy of the meme. This meme is effective because it has an immediate effect of being shocking and lurid to the senses of women and weak men and forces people to talk about the status of women in our civilization. All we are pushing for is a return to the status of women we had in the early 19th century before Jews and their feminism ruined our civilization. This should not be controversial. If you are opposing WHITE SHARIA because you disagree with women being reduced to the status of property to be beaten and fucked at the whims of her husband, you are a faggot and a cuckold and have no place in any right-wing site, and instead belong at the bottom of festering bogs like Reddit and Voat.
A final word to offended “traditional” female readers:

Despite all your assertions of being a good traditionalist, you fight against the implementation of traditional gender roles wherever they begin to be discussed. You’re not a traditional woman and you don’t want a traditional relationship. You just like the sound of the word traditional and the outfits you see women wearing in Victorian era photographs. You speak traditionalism with your Pinterest and Instagram posts, but your actions scream of your lascivious natures. You agitate only for the “rights” of modernity: to deny your fertility, to destroy families, to rot at and injure the lives of good men who have acted with honor and decency in all their dealings to you.

You’re a whore.

That would normally be a forgivable thing. I’ve found the company of many prostitutes quite amicable, and whatever gods may be know it is impossible to meet a woman that isn’t one in this era. However, that you would sully the good name of European tradition, that you would would run around using it as a cloak for your harlotry makes you the an entirely contemptible whore. Your blasphemy against the history of Europe is to a level unforgivable through words alone, and you need to have your face bashed in by the fists of good men before a great horned shrine. On the far precipice of life, as a palsied chill ascends fast to put cold grasp upon those streams that pulse beside your throat you may beg the apologies of your ancestors.

‘What am I that should so be saved from death?
‘What am I that another death come not
‘To choke my utterance sacrilegious here?’

Be honest about what you are. Don’t sit here and pretend you’re a nice traditional girl when you fight against any implementation of traditional values. Say aloud what you are, on the streets, to your families, on social media: “I’m a despicable whore.” Do it before it is too late, because I swear to whatever gods may be that when the purge comes if you have been using traditionalism as a cloak for your revolting degeneracy your name is going on a list and we will be coming to make you pay for it. You will feel the punch to your throat first, but the hours afterwards at the hands of a WHITE SHARIA gang will make that seem as just a brief and gentle touch against your skin. Your ribs will be broken. Your face will be broken. Some of you will not live to tell about it. This I promise: a much needed correction is coming for you soon, you disgusting skanks.

"But Crazy, Dawkins, Provine and Ruse didn't SAY that there could be no moral values without God. "

You WISH they weren't saying what they are saying. and, thus far, you have provided no counterargument - just wishful thinking. And, it is delusional, because on atheism, the universe is just headed for a slow cold dark death, and nothing you do will matter in any ultimate moral sense.

'"you have NEVER - not even once - said why God is necessary."

Sure I did: without an Objective Moral Standard there can be no objective moral values or duties. It is quite simple, for those willing to listen.

"because God cannot be proven"

What?!? I have given you lots of arguments in favor of the God Hypothesis and you have given me no arguments, other than wanting to be your own "god" that He doesn't exist. In fact, merely the fact that you are spending so much time debating me on this subject is proof of God's existence: you are behaving as if your life has an objective purpose but such does not exist on atheism. (See slow cold dark death of universe.) You are actually denying your atheism, pretending that your life has an objective meaning - by evangelizing theists. :-)

"If I give you evidence and you don't believe it, it doesn't mean I haven't given you evidence. I have objective values and I have no God."

Merely saying that you have objective values is not proof that they exist, any more than my saying I have a billion dollars is proof that it exists in my bank account.

"Isn't that really your problem - you are so intent on telling me what I believe rather than actually listening to me that you can't handle the truth?"

I don't actually care what you believe. I care what is objectively true. What you believe is a measure of your feelings and psychological state - I am not interested in that - I am a theist, in search of truth, not feelings. That is a huge difference from my life as an atheist, I might add.

"Because we are human beings with c onsciences, empathy, a sense of belonging, a sense of place, a sense of purpose, a sense of how to co-exist with our fellow human beings, a sense of what works best for us all to live together harmoniously."

None of those things are objective, - they are ice cream flavors that vary across individuals. Some like Hitler, others like Ghandi. A sense of purpose is not any objective purpose - it is just a grand delusion, on atheism. How can anything objectively matter when there will be no one around to remember it or you for that matter?

"What a waste of a g ift this life is under that way of thinking."

Life IS a waste on atheism. It is a big accident which has no ultimate meaning. It is absurd. Look at the universe around you: if that is all there is, then it is a huge waste. And you are a speck of a dot of waste, on atheism. Why are you pretending your life means anything, other than whatever you want to make up out of thin air - to satisfy a fairy tale of yours?

"We are not insects. Next."

Nice try, but take it up with Darwin. He realized full well that we could be insects in a subjective moral sense if evolution had taken a different turn, and, BTW, aren't insects our cousins or something?!? :-) You have not answered the question as to why Darwinian evolution is not just one giant craps table, and due to that, there are no objective moral values and duties? Darwin understood.

"We are not other animals, either. Our brains don't work the same way."

That is twice it sounds as though you are distancing yourself from macro-evolution, do I have that right? I thought we were just animals evolved to a different species, no better or worse? It almost sounds like you are saying, twice, that human beings are supernaturally different from insects and lions, not merely physically different? Speaking of lions (scroll down for more good images):

http://www .powerlineblog .com/archives/2015/08/zebra-lives-matter.php

"I don't think it's intellectually honest of you to tell people who are living perfectly happy lives under s ecular humanism that they are miserable failures."

I never said that. I said that you are deluding yourself into thinking your life has objective moral value and purpose and meaning. (And, for some strange reason, 97% of atheists do not give the same consideration to the human in the womb.)

I know drunks and drug addicts who thought they were living perfectly happy lives too. They are as deluded as atheists. :-)

"All right, under the condition that you ditch the annoying smilies."

OK, but you didn't warn me before this, so that is why I have annoying smilies above. (Uuugh! I SO want to put an annoying smiley here!)

"Premise 1: You, the fundamentalist Christian, require a God in order to claim moral objectivity. Premise 2: The moral objectivity you claim is actually moral SUBJECTIVITY as laid out specifically by your God in your Bible. Premise 3: God's subjective commands can involve killing, torture, murder, and other unsavory and amoral things. Conclusion: You are amoral, subscribing to the whims of a cruel and jealous God."

It would be nice to have these in IF-Then form, but OK, I will consider this as a step-wise proof. I would probably reword Premise 1, but I will allow it.

Premise 2 is invalid. Even if you think that the Bible is a rule book (hint: it's not), then you would need to show that. How is it that God's Rule Book could pos sibly be subjective, since He is the Objective Moral Standard? Even if you believe that He is cruel and mean and all, how can that be subjective? What Higher Standard are you appealing to? Not God. Perhaps (yourself)?!?

Premise 3 is also invalid, since it includes "subjective" and it smuggles in you placing your objective moral values and duties above God's, which by the definition of "God" cannot be true. Same for the conclusion and, BTW, there are no rules of logic that would apply, even if Premises 1-3 were true, that would lead to the Conclusion. If I am wrong, please state the propositional logic rule that applies.

"I get morals from my family, my upbringing, and my developed sense of empathy."

Yes, but those are not objective. Hitler got his morals that way too, as did Stalin. Hitler had tremendous empathy for the Aryan race.

"Dawkins, Provine, Ruse and anyone else you'd care to name puts value on the loved ones in their lives."

Oh sure, but they are stealing from theism to do so. They are denying their atheism and pretending that their lives, and those of their loved ones, have objective moral value, purpose, and meaning. This is why atheism is totally unlivable. For the atheist to spend this much time debating a theist, he MUST believe that there is something objective about that purpose. But, on the slow cold dark death of the universe, such objectivity means nothing of course.

PSYCHOLOGY IS A SATANIC RELIGION

In the face of truth Shrinks maintain a psychological foundation for their fraud on myths devoid of empirical data.

Their claim that mental differences (mostly sexual) come from ancient Greek and Roman gods are bogas. These “gods” that have never existed or seen are supposed to mirror contemporary human mental problems.

Some of psychologies pagan delusions to name a few are, Demeter, Persephone, Athena, Artemis, Hades, Psyche, Eros, Pleasure, Cupid, Aphrodite, and Zeus.

Shrinks claim the New Testament of the Bible is a fabrication of sick minds even though thousands of years of confirmed signs and wonders from God have proved their assumptions to be wrong.

Shrinks refuse to accept the creators God and Jesus to have the answers for mans mental problems.

Shrinks have a propensity to denigrate God, Jesus and the Bible, so it only fair to as have others sully Sigmund Freud MD, Neurologist, and Psychiatrist/Psychologist, Mrs. Melinie Reizes Klein Psychologist and other devotees of psychological mind control and their contribution to keeping mankind in sins darkness by skimming the surface of man's bent.

I do not condemn the Hebrew or Gentile Shrink, in reality within this treatise are facts to educate the biblically unlearned layman and intellectuals caught in the satanic snare of doubt by the fowler of Psychology.

As a supplement to Freud’s list of sexual psychological classifications Shrinks have added contemporary ideas of mental illness,(schizophrenia, bi-polar, neurotic, phobias, etc.) to confuse the spiritually lost.

To maintain a monitary base Shrinks teach having a life of mental wellness and self serving harmony filled with sexual escapades are the sinners due and acceptable in all.

1 COR 2:11 What man knows the things of a man, save the spirit (natural mind) of man which is in him? Man understands the workings of the human mind but without the Holy Ghost cannot see the workings of God in man.

You can be a psychologist without years of university brainwashing by heathen women professors if you just convert to Jesus and pay attention to the minuscule detail in peoples lives.

The Holy Ghost knows the day by day working of God in people while secular Shrinks can only guess.

PSA 14:1 The fool has said in his mind, there is no God; Freud taught this to his cronies and patients.

Fools effortlessly become societies Psychologists because of their propensity to be corrupt, immoral, depraved, decayed, sex crazed and Jesus hating liars.

Dreams of Dunamis #fundie dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com

POSSIBLE TAINTED OR CURSED ITEMS:

Playing cards – The basic deck of playing cards (some have reported problems with these – especially when used for gambling,) Dark Pokemon cards, Digimon, Yugio, Magic: The Gathering, tarot cards.

Posters of stars: For example, Marilyn Monroe and other movie stars, rock bands, athletes, etc. (They can help form unholy soul ties to the person on the poster. The owner of the poster can start to suffer the same problems that the star suffered from, such as drugs, unhealthy relationships, broken marriages, etc.)

Board games and other forms of games: Mah-Jhonng, Jumanji, Dungeons and dragons games, (and other role or fantasy games,) Ouija boards, (that one is a HUGE problem item for believers to have!)

Video games: Some of the worst ones are – Doom, Dante’s Inferno, Shiu Megami Tensei: Nocturne, Tecmo’s Deception, Guitar Hero III, Deep Down, Devil May Cry series, The Ninja Kids, The Binding of Issac, Castlevania: Lord of Shadow, Diablo, Requeim: Avenging Angel, Rune Quest.

Books: Twilight series books and other vampire books, Harry Potter books, book of Mormon and their literature, satanic bible, Morals and Dogma book by Albert Pike, other Masonic or illuminati texts, books and tapes on any false Christian doctrines, Jehovah’s Witness literature, Taoist literature, literature from cults, any books that combine biblical Christianity with modern day psychiatry, magic books, new age occult books, witchcraft books, and the writings of C. S. Lewis.

Some secular music: Some popular music has words and symbols that are illuminati based. Others promote un-Christian morals or values, and some are even openly satanic. Watching or listening to this music can cause an open doorway for demons to attack. So make sure what you listen to is clean as well. Even better, listen to Christian music. (Make sure the Christian music is not in name only! Some Christian bands are not of Him and are working under cover for satan instead. Their lyrics and their album covers give clues to this.)

T.V. Shows, movies, and computer web pages: Mystic Knights & their action figures, Inuyasha, Avatar, the new TV show ‘Coven’, The Lion the witch and the wardrobe movie, The Passion of the Christ, I Am Legend, (that movie was a HUGE problem for our family! It literally filled our whole house with demons.) Carrie, Harry Potter films, Avatar, vampire movies, Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Blair Witch Project, (and other witch craft movies and TV shows,) The Evil Dead, The Exorcist, movies about the dead, demons, satan, or hell, Omen, Stephen King’s It, Fallen, Rosemary’s Baby, The Unborn, The Convent, The Rite, The Gate, The Ninth Gate, Paranormal Activity, Pumpkinhead, Case 39, Amityville Horror, Silent Hill, Sinister, Child’s Play, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Splice, other horror movies, and any program or movie that positively features a false religion in it. Also be cautious where you go while surfing the web. The computer screen can become a portal for evil to go through, depending on what is being viewed. Our family has had problems with pictures of demons, aliens, false gods, reading false doctrine, and any of the symbols listed here. We have also had trouble with the face photos of certain criminals, as well as facial photos of those who practice Santeria. Often times as a believer, you can sense if what you are viewing is o.k. or not. You will have a sense of unease, irritability, dirt, disgust, or even out right fear after seeing what you are seeing. (When I view a web site with a picture of a demon or alien on it, I get a sudden shock of fear go right through my chest.) If this is sensed, stop, close the offending pictures, ask for forgiveness for looking upon it, and then cast out any demons that may have gone through the doorway, and then close the doorway in the name of Jesus. (For an example of this, see: https://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2013/07/07/a-demon-came-through-the-computer-screen/ )

Most European cinema is made with government subsidies. This makes it particularly pernicious since it is resistant to commercial imperatives. Fortunately, most European films are so bad no one wants to watch them. Hollywood is a different story. There the Jews are in control and have diabolically weaponised the art of story-telling against us. We can at least hope for a consumer revolt against them there since they’re operating in the private sector. Perhaps it’s wishful thinking, but in the last few years there may have been signs of goy rebellion as Alt Right consciousness spreads and Jews have jumped the shark by laying the propaganda on too thick.

It would help fan the flames of this goy revolt if we had an Alt Right equivalent of the IMDB where you could get a quick deconstruction of the propaganda content of the film before watching it. One reason Netflix shut down their review option, I suspect, was that white people had started pushing back there in the comments.

The reviews/analysis on the site wouldn’t need to be too in-depth. A quick take would often be enough.

For example, for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”.

Jew producer Rem Bergman (Israeli). Reckless young white man rebel gets lots of people killed by evil, white-skinned imperial baddies. Purple-haired, feminist-type white woman takes charge and reprimands him. But she is clueless and doesn’t know what to do. A negro and fat Asian chick come up with a plan to save everyone. The negro is a coward but the Slope encourages him to man up. A young white chick goes to an old white guy to learn wisdom. He is weak, feckless; given up; thinks he is useless and doesn’t care anymore. She persuades him to try again. He teaches her stuff. In the end, the white chick, the negro and fat Asian bitch and a “diverse” crew of helpers confront the evil white imperials and defeat their plans.

Obviously, this would have to set up on a platform that was resistant to censorship, open to input from unknown outsiders, with some kind of approval process for entries to exclude infiltration by the Left. Sort of like the “far-right” Wikipedia equivalents.

Ultimately, a people defines its self-image through the stories it tells. By hijacking the apparatus of our collective dream manufacture, the Jews have been able to sap our spirit and warp our sense of right and wrong. An Alt Right IMDB would let us set up our very own Culture of Critique through which we could begin the process of deprogramming the Matrix.

DepravedAndDeprived #sexist #psycho incels.co

Being raped is a status symbol

I've said this several times on .co but I want to dedicate a thread on it to discuss.

It may have struck you that women are very open about having been assaulted or raped. You'll see them start their monologue with "as a rape survivor..."; you'll see them refer to "my rapist" as though it's an attribute; they yell #metoo on Twitter; they'll idly remark just how often they get groped.

But why? Why would you want to announce this so badly? The answer is that it is a symbol of status. Women's only power is their sexual desirability, and so the female social hierarchy is focussed almost entirely on this trait. Social creatures as they are, this hierarchy is crucial for them, so they are eager to climb it. By claiming rape or assault, the foid indicates sexual desirability, as she implies she is irresistible to men.

This is also why, when a woman talks about her rape story, other women typically respond with their own story: it's just a one-up in disguise. It's also why, in part, so many false rape allegations have been made. In actuality, true rape is rare (having drunk sex like a whore doesn't count) so women compensate by dramatising an irl event or just completely making one up.

Age of Shitlords #fundie medusamagazine.com

Hello Readers of Medusa Magazine. My name is {redacted} and I own ageofshitlords.com. Before I begin, I just want to state that yes, this website is satire. It has always been and will always be satire…. but I don’t blame anyone for thinking otherwise. Myself and the fellow Shitposters who operated and published articles on this website while it lasted pride ourselves on writing fairly believable satire with just enough retardation to keep our readers in constant doubt. This has been fun, but all good things have to come to an end. I am shutting down this website because recent events have proven to us that it is no longer possible to satirize the Feminist left.

To prove that this was a hoax all along, a couple months ago when I first got the idea for this website, I posted about it on my Facebook page.

The post is still visible on Facebook today:

image

Naturally, we waited a couple weeks before putting our plans into action, but the motive remained the same; to create a website to satirize the far left and the so-called “Social Justice Warriors” who infect it. Since starting the blog, our articles have been featured on several media publications like Info-wars, The Federalist, The Gateway Pundit, and several other websites that fell for our prank, including one Russian website that covered our article calling for “White abortions“, as proof of how politically correct the west has become.

But while everyone else was falling for our satirical articles, others weren’t buying it. Some users of Reddit’s r/kotakuinaction subreddit took it upon themselves to investigate and prove that the website was indeed owned by the same people operating Age Of Shitlords. Also, a special hat-tip to the nosy writer of the blog why evolution is true, who kept pestering and gathering information to prove that this site was indeed a parody. But then again, they were only able to come to that conclusion due to my own personal clumsiness.

As a general principle and for security reasons, I always use a fake name and identity when buying a domain name online. I just so happened to use the same fake name to buy medusamagazine.com that I had used to buy ageofshitlords.com a year ago. Ba Dum Tss. The rest of the deduction was easy from there. A few people made the connection between Age Of Shitlords and Medusa magazine and concluded that the later was probably just the owner of Age Of Shitlords taking a piss. In my defense, I didn’t bother hiding the ageofshitlords-medusamagazine connection because I didn’t expect the website to go viral so fast and as much as it did.

But back to to the original topic, we are shutting down our rather hilarious project because we can no longer compete with our competition. We have come to realize that our competition is not other satirical websites, but rather the people we are trying to satirize. About a week ago, after a short hiatus from the website and in light of the recent sexual assault allegations currently afflicting Hollywood, we put out another article titled “Why we should believe women who accuse right wingers of rape more than those who accuse liberals”. The article is a total caricature intended to be as ridiculous as possible, basically arguing that because liberals are good people, we should forgive them when they rape women. We thought no one in the world could possibly hold views as ridiculous as that, so we wrote it as satire and published it.

So imagine our surprise when an actual Feminist and self-proclaimed expert on “rape culture” wrote an article for The Washington Post no less, using the same rational and reasoning as our satirical article that was written just a few days before:

image

And this batshit-insane Feminist isn’t alone in her thinking, others seem to share her views on the topic:

image

.......

And that is why we are shutting down this website. Because there is no point in operating a caricature website of Feminism anymore when real life Feminists are now more insane than any caricature we could ever dream up. If you enjoyed our content and are sad to see us go, then just go follow any legitimate Feminist blog or any of the many obnoxious Feminists on Twitter. Their content is the same as ours.

Ann Coulter #racist anncoulter.com

[From "GIVE ME YOUR TIRED ARGUMENTS ..."]

Everything said about President Trump's "Muslim ban" is a lie -- including that it's a Muslim ban.

The New York Times wore out its thesaurus denouncing the order: "cruelty ... injury ... suffering ... bigoted, cowardly, self-defeating ... breathtaking ... inflammatory ... callousness and indifference" -- and that's from a single editorial!

Amid the hysteria over this prudent pause in refugee admissions from seven countries whose principal export is dynamite vests, it has been indignantly claimed that it's illegal for our immigration policies to discriminate on the basis of religion.

This is often said by journalists who are only in America because of immigration policies that discriminated on the basis of religion.

For much of the last half-century, Soviet Jews were given nearly automatic entry to the U.S. as "refugees." Entering as a refugee confers all sorts of benefits unavailable to other immigrants, including loads of welfare programs, health insurance, job placement services, English language classes, and the opportunity to apply for U.S. citizenship after only five years.

Most important, though, Soviet Jews were not required to satisfy the United Nations definition of a "refugee," to wit: someone fleeing persecution based on race, religion or national origin. They just had to prove they were Jewish.

This may have been good policy, but let's not pretend the Jewish exception was not based on religion.

If a temporary pause on refugee admissions from seven majority-Muslim countries constitutes "targeting" Muslims, then our immigration policy "targeted" Christians for discrimination for about 30 years.

Never heard a peep from the ACLU about religious discrimination back then!

According to the considered opinion of the Cato Institute's David J. Bier, writing in The New York Times, Trump's executive order is "illegal" because the 1965 immigration act "banned all discrimination against immigrants on the basis of national origin.”

In 1966, one year after the 1965 immigration act, immigrants from Cuba suddenly got special immigration privileges. In 1986, immigrants from Ireland did. People from Vietnam and Indochina got special immigration rights for 20 years after the end of the Vietnam War.

The 1965 law, quite obviously, did not prohibit discrimination based on national origin. (I was wondering why the Times would sully its pages with the legal opinion of a Grove City College B.A., like Bier! Any "expert" in a storm, I guess.)

In fact, ethnic discrimination is practically the hallmark of America's immigration policy -- in addition to our perverse obsession with admitting the entire Third World.

Commenting on these ethnic boondoggles back in 1996, Sen. Orrin Hatch said: "We have made a mockery" of refugee law, "because of politics and pressure." We let in one ethnic group out of compassion, then they form an ethnic power bloc to demand that all their fellow countrymen be let in, too.

As the former Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew, described "diversity" in Der Spiegel: "In multiracial societies, you don't vote in accordance with your economic interests and social interests, you vote in accordance with race and religion.”

That's our immigration policy -- plus a healthy dose of Emma Lazarus' insane idea that all countries of the world should send their losers to us. (Thanks, Emma!)

Americans are weary of taking in these pricey Third World immigrants, who show their gratitude by periodically erupting in maniacal violence -- in, for example, San Bernardino, Orlando, New York City, Fort Hood, Boston, Chattanooga, Bowling Green and St. Cloud.

The Muslim immigrants currently being showcased by the left are not likely to change any minds. The Times could produce only 11 cases of temporarily blocked immigrants that the newspaper would even dare mention. (Imagine what the others are like!)

For purposes of argument, I will accept the Times' glowing descriptions of these Muslim immigrants as brilliant scientists on the verge of curing cancer. (Two of the Times' 11 cases actually involved cancer researchers.)

Point one: If the Times thinks that brilliance is a desirable characteristic in an immigrant, why can't we demand that of all our immigrants?

To the contrary! Our immigration policy is more likely to turn away the brilliant scientist -- in order to make room for an Afghani goat herder, whose kid runs a coffee stand until deciding to bomb the New York City subway one day. (That was Najibullah Zazi, my featured "Immigrant of the Week," on May 1, 2012.)

Point two: I happened to notice that even the stellar Muslim immigrants dug up by the Times seem to bring a lot of elderly and sickly relatives with them. Guess who gets to support them?

House Speaker Paul Ryan's driving obsession (besides being the Koch brothers' lickspittle) is "entitlement reform," i.e., cutting benefits or raising the retirement age for Social Security and Medicare.

I have another idea. How about we stop bringing in immigrants who immediately access government programs, who bring in elderly parents who immediately access government programs, or who run vast criminal enterprises, stealing millions of dollars from government programs? (I illustrated the popularity of government scams with immigrants in Adios, America!image by culling all the news stories about these crimes over a one-month period and listing the perps' names.)

Point three: Contrary to emotional blather about the horrors refugees are fleeing, a lot are just coming to visit their kids or to get free health care. One of the Times' baby seals -- an Iraqi with diabetes and "a respiratory ailment" -- was returning from performing his responsibilities as an elected official in Kirkuk.

That's not exactly fleeing the Holocaust.

While it's fantastic news that most Muslim refugees aren't terrorists, the downside is: They're not refugees, they're not brilliant, they don't have a constitutional right to come here and they're very, very expensive. Until politicians can give us more government services for less money, they need to stop bringing in the poor of the world on our dime.

CH & Pat Boyle #sexist heartiste.wordpress.com

I’m having as big a laugh as any crimson-blooded American man over the latest sexual assault accusation against ür-shitlib feminist tribal hypocrite Al Franken, but it’s a good time to step back from the charade and examine this strange new moral panic overtaking the land as part of a larger marxist and feminist agenda to stigmatize normal male sexuality.

Pat Boyle worries about the same trend, in a comment over at Sailer’s,

I see this morning that Al Franken is the latest celebrity male to be accused of harassing some woman sometime. I hate all this because my views put me so outside the mainstream of contemporary politics but more importantly the mainstream of the community of iSteve readers.

I suspect that all this moralizing and tut-tuting about men harassing women will read like Victorian posturing’s in just a few years. Women want to be harassed. Indeed they are designed by nature to be harassed. My experience is that women demand to be harassed. Feminism will surely turn on its heel and come to be outraged that men are no longer harassing them as is their right.

Why are women happy and when are women most happy. Probably on their honeymoon and the first few months of marriage. This is when women get the most sex. Normal heterosexual women want to have sexual relations with a man every couple days. Most women for most of their adult lives probably are partially starved for sex.

How do women get what little sex they can manage? Unfortunately for them they are largely at the mercy of the energies of the men around them. They are also tightly bound by a network of prohibitions and customs that keep them from exercising the initiative. They must wait often for some man to make an approach. Not all men find it comfortable to do this. There is some risk of rejection and humiliation. Others are clumsy.

I never cheated on either of my wives but in those periods when I was single I worked diligently at accosting females. There was a time when I dated over a hundred different women strangers in a single year. This has become easy with the rise of the Internet. I was never accused of harassing any of them but I was often rejected – sometimes loudly and in public. So what? Girls dress up so as to become the object of men’s lust. Then they feign indifference. That’s just how the game is set up. Since women are generally small, weak and unarmed, all a man risks by being sexually aggressive is a few unkind words.

In those periods when I was most active I thought of myself as providing a public service. Women like to be vigorously pursued. If they are ignored they pout.

Some women are now thinking of the current jihad against grab-ass as some kind of moral crusade. They haven’t counted the costs. If as seems likely, men become more reluctant to flirt or even just make naughty comments to women, the sum total of human happiness will be diminished. Men will hesitate and women will go home and cry in their empty bed.

Women by nature are loathe to hit on men, so they must rely on men aggressively pursuing them to have any shot at love and marriage. If men stop busting a move, both men and women lose out.

Daniel Chieh follows up,

As Slavoj Žižek kinda trolled, the “new rules” are like an ashtray with a “No Smoking” sign above it. Its all madness, the glorious result of a combination of pursuing fantastical ideas of equality to their natural limit plus absolute atomization of the individual.

Enjoy the Current Year spectacle of leftoids getting id-raped by the very man-hating beast they released from the abyss, but don’t forget that the end game is not good for anyone: this beast won’t stop devouring until Equalism is dead as an ideology and virtue signaling passes from the stage as the flare of madness it has always been.

Alex Jones shares a belief with the Satanists: libertarianism, which is effectively, is founded on the Satanic tenet of “do what thou wilt.” Ultimately, however, the libertarian movement in the United States is a front for the CIA and World Bank, through its promotion of the economic theories of the Mont Pelerin Society, which is associated with the occult tradition of synarchy.[13]

MK-Ultra agent Timothy Leary was also a libertarian and supported the candidacy of Ron Paul for president in 1988 as leader of the Libertarian Party. A floppy disk was sent out as an invitation to a Ron Paul fundraiser hosted by Timothy Leary at his home in Benedict Canyon, which included the following message from Leary:

Thank you for joining me today in support of Ron Paul and the Libertarian Party. As we enter these closing years of the Roaring Twentieth Century, we’re going to see personal computers enhance our lives in ways we can scarcely imagine. Fellow Cyberpunk Chuck Hammill has helped me assemble a collection of bits and bytes you may enjoy.

If you’re wise ... digitize![14]
Alex Jones admires the theories of Rothbard, a student of one of the leading members of Mont Pelerin, Ludwig von Mises. Rothbard was also a co-founder of the Charles Koch Foundation in 1974, with one of the infamous Koch brother, Charles, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of the conglomerate Koch Industries. David Koch ran as a Libertarian Vice-Presidential candidate in 1980, and advocated the abolition of Social Security, the FBI, the CIA, and public schools.

In July 1976, Charles Koch Foundation changed its name to the Cato Institute, which serves as a libertarian think tank headquartered in Washington, DC. According to the 2011 Global Go To Think Tank Index Report (Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program, University of Pennsylvania), Cato is number 14 in the “Top Thirty Worldwide Think Tanks” and number 6 in the “Top Fifty United States Think Tanks.” Cato also operates Libertarianism.org which features, among others, the writings of Rothbard and Robert Anton Wilson.[15] In 1986, Wilson and Shae’s The Illuminatus! Trilogy won the Prometheus Hall of Fame Award, designed to honor classic libertarian fiction.

Todd Brendan Fahey, who was a guest at DisinfoCon, has been featured in the pages of right-wing conspiracy sites like Ron Paul’s associate’s LewRockwell.com, as well as Patriotist.com, and LibertyForum.org. A longtime writer for EtherZone.com. In or about 1989, Fahey was introduced to LSD and ended up infiltrating a group surrounding “Captain” Al Hubbard, the so-called “Johnny Appleseed of LSD,” who worked closely with Aldous Huxley in MK-Ultra.[16]

Fahey became best known for Wisdom’s Maw: The Acid Novel, a “factionalization” of the CIA’s MK-Ultra acid-tests and their influence on the sixties counterculture. The book got rave reviews in the Village Voice, High Times, and a number of underground magazines, and gained the attention of cyperpunk personalities like Grateful Dead lyricist John Perry Barlow and R.U. Sirius, who is associated with Metzger. Fahey boasts of having read Gary Allen’s None Dare Call it a Conspiracy under the influence of LSD, and then joined the John Birch Society (JBS), though he continued to use psychedelic drugs.

Fahey had worked as a spy for the Defense Intelligence Agency chief Lt. General Daniel O. Graham, and served as aide to CIA agent Theodore L. “Ted” Humes, Division of Slavic Languages, who had worked with William F. Buckley in Japan against North Korea and China.[17] Fahey also worked with Major General John K. Singlaub, an ex-OSS officer and head of the notorious “Phoenix Program” in Vietnam. Fahey worked for Singlaub within the World Anti-Communist League (WACL), a CIA front with ties to the John Birch Society through the Western Goals Foundation.[18]

Western Goals was a private intelligence dissemination network active on the right-wing in the US. Western Goals was also associated with Reinhard Gehlen, with whom they shared a connection with the Order of the Knights of Malta (SMOM). The chairman of the Knights of Malta in the United States was Peter Grace, a key figure in Operation Paperclip.[19] Grace’s company, W.R. Grace & Company, was founded by Peter’s grandfather, William Grace, who was a close associate of George de Mohrenschildty. Western Goals was finally wound up in 1986 when the Tower Commission revealed it had been part of the Iran-Contra funding network. Oliver North identified Western Goals founder John Singlaub as his liaison to the White House.[20]

Singlaub, along with John Birch society members like J. Peter Grace, were also members of the Council for National Policy (CNP), wiich has been endorsed by Alex Jones. It was mainly through the backing of the CNP that the JBS’s rabid opposition to the so-called “communist” conspiracy assisted in the rise of the popularity of Ron Paul and the Tea Party, who spearheaded the cause of libertarian ideals. However, although the JBS attributed the root of such a conspiracy to the CFR, the early leadership of the CNP was comprised of members of the CFR, including Peter Grace.[21] The CNP was described by The New York Times as a “little-known group of a few hundred of the most powerful conservatives in the country,” who meet three times yearly behind closed doors at undisclosed locations for a confidential conference.[22]

CFR member Jesse Helms was also a key figure in founding the CNP. A 33º Mason, Helms played a leading role in the development of the Christian right, and was a founding member of the Moral Majority in 1979.[23] Helms was close to Billy Graham, as well as Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell, who also were members of the CNP. Among CNP’s founding members were also Senator Trent Lott, former US Attorneys General Ed Meese, John Ashcroft, Col. Oliver North and philanthropist Else Prince, mother of Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater USA.

Feline Extraterrestrials
Place of Origin: Originally these beings came from another universe. They are prominent in the Sirius Star System, but exist in other star systems as well.

Dimensional Perspectives: Exist from 3D on up to 12D

Appearance: Bipedal cats or human cat hybrids. Features are similar to Earth felines. Species have taken forms similar to Lions and others look more like our domestic cats with variety of coloration. They can be anywhere from 3-8’ tall.

Evolution: Evolved billions of years ago from quadruped cats to bipedal large cats. Developed higher senses and fine tuned psychic sensitivity as sentience rather than use of physical tools. Later feline species were genetically mixed with humans and have half human bodies with cat features such as tails and feline facial characteristics. These were created from a group of feline genetic engineers. Felines of 6D and higher are energy beings no longer requiring what we perceive as physical form, but they can shape themselves to appear as their original feline form.

Qualities: Curious, adventurous, creative, imaginative, organized, focused, planners, tenacious and intense yet capable of profound relaxation and deep meditation. Independent yet capable of forming close bonds to accomplish goals. While serious about their tasks, they can be quite playful, fun loving, and lighthearted.

Abilities: Highly psychic and telepathic, visionary, and advanced creators. Attune to frequencies and can mold energies to change environments with music, art, dance and theater among all other creative means. Able to connect with other forms of consciousness and co-create with ease.

Specialties: Higher dimensional forms are often galactic travelers and are called upon to shift energies in environments and spark creative flow and psychic abilities. They are also commonly galactic performers, sharing their creative energies in many artistic ways.

Basic Needs: Both comfort and stimulation. This is seen on all levels of development. They love exploring new nooks of the universe, but they enjoy doing it in comfort.

Focus: Personal growth and evolving consciousness and creativity. Felines find fulfillment in sharing their gifts to inspire new ideas and move energy in new directions or to establish states of tranquility.

Involvement with Earth: They seeded feline species on Earth in times of mammal evolution. Prominent in Atlantis/Lemuria and later in Ancient Egypt as guides to humans who sought celestial contact and assistance in developing extrasensory abilities and advances in creativity.

Guide for Humanity: Sekmet (9D ambassador collective). Revered as a god in Ancient Egypt.

Star seeds: There are millions of Feline souls incarnate on Earth now. They are here to bring creative spirit to new levels within humanity. Souls have come from 4D to 9D and each bring their quality of Feline energy to the planet. Usually the characteristics listed above will show themselves in the human personality. They will often have a profound respect for cats of Earth. Though much less common, some purposely distance themselves from the animals in order to claim their independence from the Earth species (unconsciously). While you would think humans with feline souls might be graceful and coordinated, they often feel clumsy in a human body and unsure of their footing. They also believe they should be able to create with their agile minds, and feel awkward having to do mundane physical tasks. Creative ventures are so important to them that they may miss out on human connection as they pursue their dreams. But what they do will usually have a deep energetic influence on others as their projects carry the feline spirit of enlightenment. These souls love to check out new things, ideas and places. They have a knack for spotting trends and being there before others. They are often up on anything fringe or cutting edge to the point where it could get them in trouble. They are often world travelers, but they must have a cozy nook to come home to. They thrive on stimulating input, but they also want to feel the comforts of familiar territory. Feline souls also cherish their alone time and need solitude on a regular basis. But they can cuddle too, on their terms.

* Amariah assembled this information from her many telepathic contacts with higher dimensional Felines; Sekmet and other personal guides for starseed souls.

It's ok Brother, the thing that should make you smile the most is knowing that when that troll takes his first step into eternity, that God will judge him/her accordingly and that their just reward will be handed out. Let them live a little bit longer and know that when their time is coming, that The Lord will remind them of this slight towards me, as well as others, and remind them that their time is coming, and that the Fear of the judgement of The Lord will be at hand for them, that that there's no way to escape :)

Remember, eternity is when the wing of the dove that circles the earth touches it but once every one hundred years to brush but a speck of dust away to wear it down to but a speck of dust, and The Lord re-forms the earth, for a new dove to do just the same, new earth after new earth and so on and so on, for time will stand still for on and on and on. Scary, isn't it? Yet, ppl like that simpering little troll just thumb their nose at God and His believers in Christ. Must be scary to be an unbeliever on their deathbed, knowing they're about to pass through that door into eternity.

Why NASA and its scientists insist that the universe is not like what the Qura'n says? The HADITH said that the distance betwenn the Earth and the first heaven is 500 years.. not light years but in that age's way of measuring .. walking and riding camels. Now it is said that billions and billions of miles distance us from stars.. then it is said that there is no end to the universe, although it is known in islam that there is heavens and the chair of god and the ultimate ceiling of the worlds: sedrat al-muntaha. those new beliefs made man unaware of his importance. they told us we are just specks of dust.. nothing. That leads to man behaving as if there is no meaning in life.. as if he is nothing that maters. Atheists love this line of thinking.. we shouldn't.

Hey guys, I had an epiphany today! It occurred to me that when the veil is ripped due to CERN...THAT is the time we could see Nibiru! I could be wrong, I'm not a scientist or even knowledgable about what's going on. When I try to learn by watching documentaries, I get angry when they leave God out...so I am not a student of science. But I do recall reading in more than one place that Nibiru isn't really a planet...it's not really a true star like our sun. I tend to believe that... because God can create anything He wants and we already know there are creations of His that we know nothing about such as the hosts of Heaven in their varied states.
So is Nibiru "hidden" until such a time as the veil is ripped, the colors in the sky start, and we suddenly see this 2nd sun where none was there before? I know people see glimpses of Nibiru now and then but we are seeing through a glass darkly when it comes to other realms. It is ironic that both us as Christians AND the scientests as CERN believe in other dimensions! HA! It does make logical sense that Nibiru is close but hidden because already something tugs at our gravity, causing the volcanoes and sinkholes and the dead animals, etc. So what a shock for us to wake up one day and see a 2nd sun. This would cause fear to melt men's hearts...not a far away speck that comes closer, but a sudden appearance of the Destroyer! What do you guys think? Could CERN be the key that unlocks our view of Nibiru? We've been told this is the season of "suddenlies"!!

Nintards shit on Forces Irrationally

I am puzzled by the overt hatred this game is getting. Where was this bile when Lost Mind showed it had no logic to it’s content and was strictly a gameplay game? Where was this bile when Sonic Bust came out with a racially offensive Knu- … a horribly redesigned cast with no fucks given to quality control?

Actually, no. I think… the answer lies strictly with Nintendo fans. Afterall, the depths of their madness has reached critical mass and…. I believe I have an answer to that. Thy arrogance be quenched.

Recently, I watched a vid from ghetto-hog (the guy who raged on IGN twice about their hatred of the original Sonic games) as he did what was a reaction vid (can’t BS what it is, man) on some punk British asshole named “Nintendo Life”, who made a video on why Sonic Forces is terrible. However, he spent the video spreading propaganda and forcing some comedic gestures to compensate for his lack of any real critique. It’s clear at this point that the internet isn’t even hiding it’s trollish behavior. They can’t even pretend their disgust is genuine.

Why is that? This guy’s complaint is that Sonic is too fast. And I ask when does the stupidity end? One of the major selling points was that Sonic was the fastest thing alive. He was a tech demo to show the faster processing power of the Genesis, for Bast’s sake. Criticising Sonic for what it’s known for is an oxymoron. Then again, Nintendo fans have terrible reflexes thanx to a steady diet of slow paced Nintendo games over the years that anything with more than 30fps scares the hell out of them. Why else would they be insane enough to proclaim that Brawl is superior to Melee? That would explain the half-baked praise of Colors and Lost Mind.

[...]

I missed the SDCC panel on Mania, but what they talked about actually gave me hope. So Robotnik’s machines are acting automa-…. autotono-… by their own free will. Generic as all hell, but actually gives this game something to work with. Hopefully Metal Sonic as a final boss? Also the prospect of a 3D special stage, while counter-intuitive, also gives me hope that they’ll reuse the one from Saturn 3D Blast…. why not?

But back to this Forces thing, it seems like most of the toxic Nintards have taken up their pitch forks and are crucifying the game every chance they get. You know something is wrong when the doggone CaC is coming under fire for merely existing. But…. I think I know why. For years and years, the Nintards have longed for Sonic yo be bought out by Nintendo. Not because they believe Nintendo can do better, but because they would feel some kind of victory was gained.

[...]

But now… why does Forces blow sand in their cunts? Well, as we’ve already discovered, Nintendo fans care about content more than they’d admit… and Forces moves away from what i’d call the “Levity Standard”.

Notice that Nintendo fans don’t talk about Metroid? Or Resident Evil? Or F-Zero? Star Fox? Nah, they always talk a great deal about the happy go lucky crap. Mario’s unparralel greatness, to Wind Waker’s artistic splendor. To them, Nintendo is not only great because of it’s magnificent gameplay (that they fail to care about), but it’s also being able to maintain that greatness without going the route of “grimdark”. Nintards are always ready to bash on the likes of Call of Duty or similar shit for being anything other than rainbows and fuzzballs. It’s a religion to them. When Iizuka went insane and swore to coddle the mentally disturbed, he made sure to hit their sweet spots by having the games from 2010-2015 be as gay as possible to appease their sensibilities, convincing them and no one else that Nintendo’s way of content worked for all.

Forces, however, rejects the Levity Standard altogether. And this chaps their ass like you wouldn’t believe. Now their only defense is to overly promote Sonic Mania as superior by default, while taking w/e measures they can to convince Sega to forgo this route entirely, and that is to criticize everything. From the boost mechanic that no one ever opposed to the mere inclusion of a CaC feature. Afterall, the content has balls, whereas theirs have yet to drop. It’s like some painfull reminder to them that Sonic was for the cool kids, and they’re not invited.

As soon as a demo drops, the game is automatic SHIT! How amazing is that? That they can now judge an unfinished product for being “too fast“. This is them throwing a tantrum that Sega is no longer trying to appease them, and is trying to reach out to the real Sonic fans.

Silly, mal-adjusted fools.

Pat Robertson is right on. And I am tired of Christians being soft and fuzy about God loving all. God loves, but His love is constrained by His Holiness and Jealousy for His Glory. This is why instead of willy nilly forgiving people, He preferred to have His Son suffer the consequences of their sins than to sully His righteous character.

And to attribute the great creation of the Universe and mankind as its crowning glory to Satan, Darwin and Evolution, I can assure you, that God is angry. Nothing ticks God off more than attributing what rightfully belongs to Him to other demigods, semigods and hemidemisemigods. That is theft, plagiarism, vandalism and wicked banditry.

[Replying to 'what does Genesis have to do with genetics?']Well, it kinda has to deal with the very origin of life. This is also not to mention that it records the genetic changes (both in plant and animal) that happened as a result of the fall of man, as well as the ecological changes (the ground not automatically producing food and all).

By the way, there is no such thing as an alien from another planet. Beings that pass themselves off as aliens are demons or even holograms. (Holographic technology does exist and it is possible that such images will be passed off by the media as UFO's or aliens. Seeing is not necessarily believing. We must walk by faith, not by sight, and test all things.) The reason so many books, television programs, and movies have alien themes (Star Trek, Return of the Jedi, Star Wars, Alien, etc.) is because the New World Order programmers are conditioning the populace to expect to see demons (which they call aliens) and to accept the idea of interacting with them. The New World Order is a satanic regime and the people serving it must be induced to expect and desire to interact with demons. If you entertain yourself via books and television programming with alien themes, you are choosing to fellowship with devils and are giving Satan the opportunity to spiritually destroy you—both now and during the Tribulation.

Once again, THE NEWS IS FAKE, PEOPLE. STOP FUCKING FIGHTING IT. IT IS WHAT IT IS.

No screams, NOT A SINGLE DROP OF blood, BULLSHIT. To accept this video as real, you'd have to actually believe that 1) this cop is not only clumsy with a taser gun, he can't shoot for shit with a real gun either OR 2) the black dude's back is made of steel. And either way, you would DEFINITELY have to believe that the camera man is COMPLETELY INVISIBLE THE WHOLE TIME. No one even glances at the camera - not one time and he's standing just a few feet away at some point and practically hanging over the fence at other times. Oh yeah...AND THERE'S ALL KIND OF DIFFERENT ANGLES....how the fuck did he do that????


Come on. Stop pretending you don't see it just so you can go over and over it and have something to talk about. IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!!!!!

Jesus dismounted from the white horse. Immediately, He turned to help me dismount. Holding me around the waist, He lowered me onto the sea of glass.

As I passed in front of Him, He breathed in the fragrance released from the covenant robe. He said, “You have made My heart beat faster, My sister, My bride.”

For a moment we stood looking at each other. Then both He and the white stallion disappeared.

Angelic Attendants

The twenty-four angelic attendants appeared near me on the sea of glass. They busied themselves preparing me for the ceremony. They smoothed the covenant garment and straightened the veil. As they worked, they smiled up into my face at times to reassure me.

Suddenly I realized that I was facing the entire assembly of heaven. The collective splendor before me was overwhelming.

The Throne Room

The sea of glass was packed with angels and the redeemed. Angels also filled the atmosphere above. Everyone wore white. There were thousands upon thousands gathered. They shone like icicles on a sunny winter’s day. They glistened.

Brighter than them all was the glory of my Father. His piercing white light at the center of the throne radiated out into a rainbow of vibrant colors.

The twenty-four stately elders flanked Him. Angels of His presence stood near the altar of incense before the throne. The four living creatures that are full of eyes were watching. The huge cherubim on either side of the throne peered through the intense light. The seven torches that symbolize the attributes of the Holy Spirit burned even brighter in front of my Father.

Planets and Stars

Amid this breathtaking splendor, images of the planets and stars were passing in review before their Creator. Creation itself was “trooping the colors,” paying homage to its King.

Again, the one lone angel sang:

Blessed is He who comes.
Blessed is He who comes.

I have read some science fiction, and I have watched a little of the science fiction movies that have been on television. I believe that the Lord impressed upon me that this is Satanic. I refuse to read it, or watch it. I heard a conservative movie critic on radio, telling about the movie, Return of the Jedi. He thought the Star Wars movies were great, along with some of the other science fiction movies. He thought they were fine for children. He is an interesting man, but he is an unsaved Jew. I would warn parents to keep this stuff out of your home, and out of the minds of your children. Many, if not all, of the "Heaven's Gate" cult were believers in UFO's, flying saucers, etc. According to Newsweek, they loved the Star Trek movies. On March 3, just a few days before the mass suicide, the cult members went to see "Star Wars." Later they watched the sequels.

How come atheists can't realize that God's existence can't be proven because he is too gorgeous and beautiful?
Atheists often demand concrete proofs so that they may believe God. Often, they imply that they want some sort of visual manifestation of God before their very faces, convincing them of the divine glory and mystery of the Lord. However, that cannot happen because God's true form is far too beautiful and potent for mere mortals to behold; since God well knows of this circumstance, he never avails himself the opportunity of directly displaying his majestic splendor and radiance, thus preventing mankind from experiencing any physical or mental shocks from such exposure.

In other words, God is like a topless woman. Women, with all of their exquisite bodily grace, replete with refined and elegant curves, endued with glamorous and comely natural proportions, are far too beautifully stunning and attractive to behold with no barriers. The feminine mystique and pulchritude of the breasts, combined with all of the other gorgeous parts of a woman, are too much for the course of mundane affairs and would doubtless lead to traffic accidents, and other gratuitous distractions if fully exposed to the world. For this reason, we have laws that prohibit the complete bareness of the female figure, making toplessness illegal.

God's beauty far surpasses that of women so his visual manifestation would have extremely dire ramifications on the thoughts and actions of mankind. Atheists, you will not get a convincing and cogent proof of God's existence. Instead, you have to rely on the primary and secondary accounts of the works and life of Jesus Christ to gain the faith necessary to convert to theism.

Satan has been using many different devices and contraptions in order to lure the already lost closer to a Christless eternity. While some Christians agree that a few of Satan's methods are rock music, "Christian" rock, movies, and television, one of the ones that can often be forgotten is computer games. I have had some gaming experience in my life, and if you look carefully, you can pinpoint Satan's tricks of the trade quite easily. I will display some of these a little later.

Satan knows he's already been judged by the Lord Jesus and is going to Hell for eternity, so before he gets tossed into the lake of fire, he will attempt to get as many people as he can to fall in the ditch with him so they will burn up with him – FOREVER (Revelations 12:12).

In computer games (and any other medium), he knows that it is important to desensitize man to his bidding, so he's got to make them tolerate the material, then accept it, then finally imitate it. In this article, I'm trying to focus on how Satan uses these games to help increase the population of Hell.

The praise of Satan

One of the first things that I thought of when deciding to write this article were the occultic symbols that can be found in some popular games. Doom, by Id Software, is considered by many to be the greatest game of all time. Its graphics and eerie sounds and music are probably the creepiest on the market. But why are there so many satanic symbols found in the game??

In the first episode "Knee Deep in the Dead", some pentagrams can be found. Click here to see a sample. At the last level of the first episode, Phobos Anomaly, the hero of the game, a stranded space marine, must step onto a platform with the symbol of a goat behind a pentagram in order to exit the level. In the first level of the second episode "The Shores Of Hell", an inverted cross can be found right near the beginning. In the third episode, called "Inferno", more pentagrams can be found on the ground in one of the levels. Teleporters, which move the player to different areas of the level, have pentagrams on them – some are different than others, for example, one of them has a 6 on it, but they are still there, and that's what matters. Click here to see a sample screen.

When exiting the shareware version of the game, you will see a screen with more info about what is in the full registered version. Here's what a section of it says:

"… Sure, don't order DOOM. Sit back with your milk and cookies and let the universe go to Hell. Don't face the onslaught of demons and spectres that await you on The Shores of Hell. Avoid the terrifying confrontations with cacodemons and lost souls that infest Inferno.

Or, act like a man! Slap a few shells into your shotgun and let's kick some demonic butt. Order the entire DOOM trilogy now! After all, you'll probably end up in Hell eventually. Shouldn't you know your way around before you make the extended visit? …"

This is a good example of how Satan, working behind the curtains, likes to make himself subtle and put into the ranks of Santa (Satan?) Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. But if possible, Satan would rather have himself worshipped ( Isaiah 14:14 ). According to Revelation 13, the whole world will worship the dragon (Satan).

Afterlife, by Lucasarts, is another one of Satan's highest masterpieces of subtlety in the area of computer games. In the game, which is reminiscent of Simcity 2000, players develop a Heaven and Hell that is far from the Heaven and Hell of the Bible. The plotline is that you are a local deity that must take care of Heaven and Hell. Intended to be humorous, the object of the game is to zone areas for the seven virtues and sins for souls of an alien race to inhabit without going bankrupt (If you do get bankrupt, "The four Surfers of the Apocalypso" come and destroy Heaven and Hell).

The different religions in the game each consist of four letter acronyms. Depending on what the souls believe will determine where they go – if they believe in one of the religions that involves reincarnation, like RALF (Reincarnation always loops fate), they will go back to earth to return at a later time. If they only believe in Heaven (OCRA, Only Cloud Realms Await) or Hell (OPRA, Only Pit Realms Await), they will go there. Some can even believe that they go from Heaven to Hell continually (SUMA, souls undergo multiple afterlifes). This all makes me think of the "More than one way to Heaven" tactic the ecumenical movement is using right this second. One of the religions is HOHO (Heaven or Hell only). HOHOists, depending on the good vs. evil balance in a soul, determines where the soul goes. Did the designers of this game contact the Watchtower Society, the Promise Keepers, or the LDS church for help on making this game or something?

In Heaven/Hell, the souls are rewarded/punished in different buildings depending on the virtue/sin they've done, and the buildings are all meant to be humorous. Some of the buildings in Hell are "Hellrose Place", "Camp Mennihackatorso", while some of the buildings in Heaven are "Coffee shops of The Word", "Eternal Afternoon", etc.. It's all a way of trying to make Satan and Hell more subtle.

Quake, one of Id Software's more recent offerings, is much like Doom, but much more technologically advanced, with polygons instead of sprites. But don't let that fool you – there's more of the same satanic fare, only just a bit more in your face. While loading up Quake or Doom, there is a loading indicator in the top right or bottom right of the screen. In Doom, the indicator was a small picture of a disk, but in Quake, in the top right of the screen however, it is a pentagram. Click here to see a sample screen. How do these things get in here??

This is just the beginning. One of the powerups in Quake is called "The pentagram of protection", a red rotating pentagram. Click here to see a sample screen. It makes your character invincible for a brief period of time. While the powerup is in affect, your characters armor rating turns to "666" and the portrait of your character turns to a more demonic look. Click here to see a sample screen. Yet again I ask, how do these things get in here?

In order to open doors and trigger reactions to help progress through the levels, buttons need to be pushed. One of these buttons has a star that is in front of a smaller circle. Is this another pentagram?? Click here to see a sample screen. Also in the picture, you can see a box of nails (the nails are ammo for the nailgun, a rapid fire weapon in the game) has the "NIN" symbol on it. That is the symbol for the blasphemous industrial group, Nine Inch Nails, which did the CD soundtrack (no lyrics) for the game!

Trent Reznor, the lead singer of Nine Inch Nails, often blasphemes Jesus in his songs. Here's an example with the song "Terrible Lie":

"Hey God, why are you doing this to me?

Am I not living up to what I'm supposed to be?

Why am I seething with this animosity?

Hey God, I think you owe me a great big apology

Terrible lie

Terrible lie

Terrible lie

Terrible lie

Hey God, I really don't know what you mean.

Seems like salvation comes only in our dreams.

I feel my hatred grow all the more extreme.

Hey God, can this world really be as sad as it seems…"

What blasphemy! He actually thinks God owes him something, when he owes God! And like usual, he denies salvation. In another NIN song, Heresy, Reznor denies the resurrection of Jesus Christ!

"He sewed his eyes shut because he is afraid to see

He tries to tell me what i put inside of me

He's got the answers to ease my curiosity

He dreamed up a god and called it christianity

Your god is dead and no one cares

If there is a hell I will see you there…"

Trent Reznor also has an instrumental only song called "Help me i am in Hell". Seeing the path he's chosen, it might not be too long before the song title becomes a reality for him!! Hopefully he will repent and get saved before it is too late for him.

Some of the levels in Quake have joyful names like "Castle of the damned", "Hell's Atrium", "The palace of hate", and "Satan's dark delight". What I find more interesting is how there is a question and answer section in the Quake instruction manual, and there is a question that goes something like this…

Q: Are you guys Satanists?

A: No.

Yet again, they treat the whole thing as a joke. But it's not a joke at all. Satan is getting everyone prepared for his worship, and these games are a great way for him to do that. The games can be fun, but in order to play the game you must look at these symbols. And as people look at them more, they consider them usual, and it won't be long before they get interested in occult activities.

As with Doom, there is a screen that appears when you exit the shareware version of Quake that shows you how to order the registered version of the game. It is nothing more than another piece of blasphemy created by Id.

"… Yes! You only have one fourth of this incredible epic. That is because most of you have paid us nothing or at most, very little. You could steal the game from a friend. But we both know you'll be punished by God if you do. WHY RISK ETERNAL DAMNATION? Call 1-800-IDGAMES begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 1-800-IDGAMES end_of_the_skype_highlighting AND BUY NOW! Remember, we love you almost as much as he does…"

Hexen, also by Id, one of the cheat codes (hidden codes that can be typed in to cheat or change certain playing conditions in the game) is "Satan". If typed in, the "God mode" will be activated, making the player invincible to all obstacles. Makes you think of Isaiah 14:14, doesn't it?

Hexen 2, the sequel to Hexen, although I've never played it, I know that the cover of the box has a demon like creature wrapped in some sort of a snake like thing, with both of the demon's hands in the satanic salute.

In the controversial Duke Nukem 3d, created by 3D Realms, the third level in the first episode is called "Death Row". In an area near the beginning of the level (The level is a prison facility) there is a chaplain, where inside, there is a cross on the wall. Click here to see a sample screen. If Duke Nukem, the game's morally decayed hero, touches a gray portrait in front of the cross, it will invert Click here to see a sample screen. I found it interesting after I played this game, some parent and family groups were complaining to the company about the violence and sexual content in the game, yet it seemed nobody really brought up the inverted cross issue right into the open. The desensitization works!

In Warcraft 2, by Blizzard Entertainment, one of the buildings, the altar of storms, has a pentagram on it. Click here to see a sample screen. In Diablo, another game made by Blizzard, pentagrams can be found rather easily in the menus of the game.

The whole "God mode" agenda

In some games, there is an "invincibility mode", which makes the player invulnerable to enemy attacks, so the player will not die. However in recent years, it seems the industry is changing the term "Invincibility mode" to "God mode". I think that this is another way Satan wants people to think that they are gods, when they are really not (Genesis 3:5). But there is only one God (Mark 12:32).

Nowadays, more people are worshipping their friends or their favorite music stars, and are calling themselves gods and goddesses. It won't be long before they all turn their attention on the Antichrist, and later, gnash and wail their teeth (Matthew 13:42) in the lake of fire (Revelations 20:15).

This article is only scratching the surface. Each year more and more games come out, and satanic influences in computer games are gradually becoming more and more visible. But it won't be long before Satan loses the battle.

Bunny from Parsons, KS #fundie tpmlivewire.talkingpointsmemo.com

On C-SPAN's call in show this morning, a woman named Bunny from Parsons, Kansas, said she was so disappointed by the Senate's health care vote that she took down her Christmas tree. And it seems like her call was not a prank.

It wasn't just Bunny's tree that went. "I have taken my Christmas wreath off my house. I have taken all the lights down," she said. "This is supposed to be a nation under God, and it isn't. They absolutely have ruined Christmas."

You can see C-SPAN host Peter Slen, no doubt trained to deal with the occasional eccentric caller, cock his head ever so slightly as Bunny breaks the news.

"So you took down your Christmas tree because of the Senate health care bill?" he asks, with a hint of incredulity.

"I certainly did. And I would like to see every light in the nation go out, especially in the White House," Bunny replies.

She also explains that members of Congress are sullying "God's holiday for the birth of his son" and that she opposes the bill so fiercely because its death panel provisions will unleash a "genocide"on seniors.

I picture nearly all of today's churches as being aboard a big ship. On the side of the ship it reads, “Mainstream Evangelicalism!” There are hundreds of Bible versions aboard the ship. There are dozens of different plans of salvation taught by evangelicals like John MacArthur, Rick Warren, Chip Ingram, Ray Comfort, William Lane Craig, Paul Washer, Billy Graham and others onboard. Everybody aboard the ship is going along to get along. Nobody exposes or criticizes each other. Everybody is comfortable, enjoying all the splendors of the luxury ship. They all draw near to God with their mouths, and honor God with their lips, but their heart is far from Him, teaching manmade doctrines. This ship's captain is Lucifer! Anything goes on Lucifer's ship. It doesn't matter which Bible version you use. It doesn't matter which plan of salvation that you choose to believe. Everybody is taken care of and prospering.

What is our nation turning into when AWAB (a LGBT gay-rights group) are infiltrating our churches. When the American Baptist Convention USA (ABCUSA) joined together with AWAB, 300 member churches of their 5,400 member church convention resigned. Amen! I'm shocked that 5,100 member churches stayed!!! Apostasy is everywhere today. The time is soon coming when born-again Christians will either be forced to gather in secret places or in private homes once again. The churches are becoming entertainment centers. It's a big joke! It's all becoming a big circus. Hundreds of Bible versions. Dozens of plans of salvation. Have you noticed that the more that you move toward ecumenism, the more there is chaos and nothing really matters anymore doctrinally or morally.

From the far-right Christian position, you've got only ONE BOOK, the King James Bible. You've only got one plan of salvation, which simply says any admitted sinner can believe the Gospel as be immediately and secularly saved forever.

The purpose of the site is to discuss the religious and spiritual side of being a Jedi. There will be no training here, no ranks bestowed, and no council. Those three things do not have a meaning within the religious aspect of being a Jedi. [...]

After time I would like to have some people that can be in charge of detailing the history of the Jedi Religion in its real form, not through the books or movies but what has transpired in real history. Another job I would like to have some people think about is, once there are many examples of living the Jedi Religion and how it has helped them through situations, I would like to have a book made up with all these stories, our beliefs, and anything else related to the Jedi Religion made up for members.

That isn’t true. I know because I actually did my damn research and now many IDF soldiers. This kid’s name was Gal Keidan, a 19 year old kid straight from high school almost conscripted into the army. No doubt he was literally just standing there doing nothing because that is what they usually do when they’re posted in the cities, they’re there just for security. Now this kid is stabbed and dead but it’s OK they’re just colonialists who cares it’s war. Bullshit. People need to maybe lift the veil that these are kids killing kids and it’s fucked. And to refute your point the parents have been arrested and the kid is still on the run, which is standard stuff even if it were to happen in the US or anywhere else in the West. This isn’t some Shiite/Sunni street vigilante justice like you’d find in Lebanon. It’s genuine due process.

So much for against hate subs, you guys may as well be one.

The state of israel is a colonial state though?

We are against hate. And the state of israel has colonized the west bank and built illegal settlements all throughout a land that is not theirs. Don't expect reasonable people to have sympathy for a colonial apartheid system.

Calling Israelis murderous colonists in response to being accused of anti-Israeli hate speech?

It's more likely than you think.

It’s almost like being against a country doesn’t make you racist

Care to specify what you mean by "being against a country"? Its people? Its existence? Against it in football?

Against the war crimes, colonization, and apartheid to became a few things.

"Islam isn't a race therefore it isn't bigoted when I say that Muslims are terrorists."

"Israeli isn't a race therefore it isn't bigoted when I say that Israelis are murderous colonists."

America was created by murder and genocide, so was Israel. I have no issue with the individual people, just the military.

(alogetic)
That is not what is being said here.

It isn't bigoted to say Nazis are bad, Germans are not.

It isn't bigoted to say ISIS is bad, Muslims are not.

It isn't bigoted to say the government of Israel is currently commiting genocide, the Jews are not.

In all these cases I am referring to specific organisations who have committed specific crimes. It would be bigoted to try and extrapolate that to a cluster of related people (e.g. by race, gender, religious beliefs), but no one ITT is doing that. They are condemning the actions of a government.

(XtF7gT)
It's bad enough that these commies are bigoted against people of means but hating soldiers just because it's their job to kill in defense of an active settler colonial project? That's even worse.

If it was possible for Jews to coexist peacefully with gentiles you might be able to argue that criticizing Israel wasn't antisemitic. But of course thanks to modern race science we all know that mitochondrial DNA and uh, epigenetics, gives the jew an irresistible urge to steal everything that isn't nailed down and murder anyone who gets in the way. So condemning that sort of behaviour is inherently antisemitic.

It's like saying you don't have a problem with dolphins, you just don't think mamals should swim.

(NinteenFortyFive)3
I also call Americans murderous colonists. Shouldn't you be upset that this is on this subreddit instead of wasting time with me?

(mcgrathc09)

Are you actually comparing the Israeli government to Nazi Germany?

Kills Children

Is an Apartheid State

Has a minority group become second class citizens

Highly Militarized

Commits War Crimes

Ghettos

Attacks Civilians on the reg

Wants to expand land holdings

So...more like Apartheid South Africa, but you could also compare it to Nazi Germany

(no_pasaran_)
A terrorist? The only terrorists in the region are the IDF.

(XtF7gT)

You see, shit like this is why I'm not a tankie.

chapotraphouse blurs the lines between valid criticism of Israel and outright antisemitism.

It's a real shame too. Both Jews and muslims have a mutual enemy in white supremacists - in an ideal world, extremists on either side would come over here and rid us of them, rather than fighting each other on a land already drenched in brotherly blood.

"muh antifascism is fascism"

What nonsense you a...

https://www.reddit.com/r/europe/comments/b24k85/belarussian_snipers_with_775_confirmed_kills_1945/eisj7py?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share

Imagine constantly posting shit like this and then getting your knickers in a twist when someone kills a soldier from a settler colonial apartheid state that routinely kills civilians, bulldozes homes as a matter of policy, and explicitly exists for the benefit of one ethnicity over all others.

The white supremacists side with the European settler colonial state though.

Red Pill Pusher #fundie redpillpushers.wordpress.com

we need to understand that all women are Red Pill women.

If you’re a man, the fact that 90% of what comes out of her mouth is a sh*t test is not news to her…it’s just news to you. The fact that she longs to be desired, have resources, and be controlled is not news to her…it’s news to you. The fact that she’s been dreaming, since she was a little girl, about having a Fifty Shades of Grey experience, and the fact that if she does have one, it marks her for life, is most definitely not news to her….it’s just news to you.

The fact that she will trade up in a heartbeat, and cannot stand to live on this planet in peace if she knows that another woman has more than her is not news to her…it’s just news to you. That she has not one drop of apologetic blood in her body for her natural hypergamic and solipsistic ways is not news to her…it’s just news to you.

Feminism, in all its forms, has ever been, and shall only ever be, one gigantic national sh*t test. Women smirking in men’s collective faces saying, “How far are you going to let us push this?” Letting women have their way has never resulted in them being happy in the long term, nor has it ever, EVER, made them respect men more.

She longs to be Gamed by men that “just get it” and will quickly reject and lose interest in any that don’t. She feeds on drama, chase, and challenge, and has the natural counter-intuitive tendency to want to lock down and possess that which has possessed her…and as soon as she does, she’s bored. And will always blame you for the state of the relationship, no matter what.

Don’t miss any of what was just said. She wants you to Game her. She craves men that know Game. It’s the chase that feeds her, and the worthy confident man that knows how to take what he wants that fires up the heat in her Southland regions. Thugs and criminals embody this spirit, as they have no regard for rules; this is why women surrender so easily to them. That characteristic is irresistible to the female mind.

Close up of angry man with steam coming out from his earsSo why are so many men shocked by all this?

1) Because your father never told you the truth. It’s your dad’s job to make you game aware as a young lad…and then you would’ve been ready. Instead of whining, “WAA WAA! I’M A NICE GUY AND NO GIRLS WANT ME!” you would’ve known to nut up, and learned how to dominate and conquer. The panties will be flying in your direction if you do that.

2) Too much male guilt. It’s a man’s world, and whether you believe in God or not, men are designed to be the movers and shakers. Very few women actually pioneer anything. They just get credit for being the first woman to do something that a man did years before. But Feminism keyed in on a natural strength of the female….her ability to make the male feel guilty about the way the world is, as if men designed women.

We didn’t.

3) Letting this Foolishness become Law. Everything’s unfair, the act of sex itself is penetrative so it must be rape, and men have to pay for women regardless of what they do or how much economic freedom that they gain on their own. These ridiculous ideas are now the law of the land as well as mainstream talking points, and men just let it happen.

That ought to tell you what the solution is.

beatsnotbuyingitSo what about women that claim they’ve “taken the Red Pill?”

Do you know what women mean when they say that? It means that they are willing to acknowledge, out loud, what they’ve always known in their hearts to be true. And normally, they only do so either after they’ve secured their own Alpha, or accepted their own spinsterhood. It’s amazing what either security or harsh reality does to a woman. For women to actually be free of their Female Matrix, built by Feminism and YouGoGrrl Culture, they have to take the Pink Pill.

So my challenge to the men is always the same….can’t you see that being Blue Pill is an abomination? An aberration? tucking of your nuts back up into your sack? And for what, exactly? IT DOESN’T BRING YOU SUCCESS. *facepalm* Part of being a man means that you are constructed to dominate, conquer, lead, teach, provide for, and protect a woman(most of the time from her own foolishness). Women that fight you and say that’s sexist? They then do their best to become men themselves. What does that tell you?

So let today be the last day of Blue Pillage for all men that are reading this but are still plugged in. Don’t be afraid to develop what is naturally yours. If we all united as men, you realize that we could have the laws changed in less than six months, right?

Time to nut up.

Another thing I just found out. I got that information (how scientists measure radiometric dating [and its limitations]) out of a book... the source of that statment, an article from the Annals of New York Academy of Science, volume 288... The[ir] website...has almost every single volume of that magazine- except volume 288! They know. They know that if a creationist got ahold of that sort of information... there will be hell to pay. Sure, it sounds like an Evil Atheist Conspiricy like WinAce has on his homepage- but I think that's what it is.

Anna Diehl #fundie 924jeremiah.wordpress.com

As we said before, gaining knowledge about God is a whole different deal than learning about other humans. In this world, knowledge is a commodity that we buy and sell. It’s ammunition that we use to gain power for ourselves and trash others. But because knowledge is so readily accessible, we’ve learned to treat it as a cheap and common thing. We’re used to feeling entitled to it, and we’re used to flaunting it like gaudy jewelry just to draw attention to ourselves.

Consider how often you see people broadcasting intimate facts about someone else just to draw attention to themselves. Gossip rags delight in posting pictures of celebrities sobbing or making out just so the rags will sell more copies. With the introduction of forums like Facebook and Twitter, we’ve seen the value of private information drop even lower. It used to be that couples went on their honeymoons to get away from others and share secret, intimate moments in the bedroom. Now people bring their phones with them and take pornographic photos of themselves making out with their spouses. Pregnant mothers post pictures of themselves in the nude just before giving birth so we can all see the size of their stomachs. When loved ones are ill, we photograph them sitting in hospital beds and invite the whole world to gawk at them. People can’t share secrets or sincere compliments anymore without some concern that what they said will end up pasted on the internet. “My husband said the sweetest thing to me in bed the other day.” Really? Since when are bedroom conversations supposed to be broadcast to the whole world? Did you even bother to ask for your friend’s permission before you repeated what she said to you to an audience of strangers?

Now in the Church, we find a similarly nauseating show of people broadcasting their personal conversations with God just as a means to draw attention to themselves. Pompous prophets crank out the books and blogs in which they give us all a blow-by-blow description of the night Jesus materialized in their bedroom and told them how impressed He was with them. Many fat-headed pastors just can’t wait to get onstage Sunday morning and tell us all about the conversation they had with God at breakfast. Prayer warriors are always going on about who said what in the prayer closet. Healers are known for flaunting the secret insights they claim God has given them. Christian musicians turn their personal prayers to God into songs for us all to sing. And then there are all of the untitled masses who are always competing with each other to come up with the best “God said something to me” story. It’s really quite repulsive, the way we’re treating our personal exchanges with God so cheaply. And as long as we’re only interested in God talking so that we can have new material to boast about, we can be sure that He’s never going to invite us to really know Him.

God doesn’t view Himself as our toy. He doesn’t share information with us to entertain us or to help us exalt ourselves in this world. To know God is a priceless privilege, not a right. When we reject this, He begins taking back any knowledge that He shared with us and we drift into ignorance without even realizing what’s happening.

When you’re attempting to relate to the Beings who made you, you are relating to three Beings who consider Themselves to be the most magnificent, fascinating, and desirable Beings in existence. To say that They are “egotistical” is a major understatement. There is no limit to how highly our Gods think of Themselves, and understanding this about Them is critical for anyone who wants to approach Them correctly. We are not dealing with our equals–we are dealing with Beings who infinitely outrank us, and who say that we ought to consider ourselves humbly honored by any invitation to know Them better.

In mainstream Christianity, you simply aren’t going to be taught to treat your Gods with the level of respect that They want. The purpose of our site is to help souls understand what cherishing, honoring, and respecting God means. Cultivating the four soul attitudes that we’re always talking about is vital to you approaching your Creators in a way that They will be receptive to. As we often say, our Gods delight in sharing insights about Themselves with souls who are treasuring Them above all else. But learning about God requires a very different approach than learning about people. With God, we ask our questions, but then we must learn to respectfully wait for Him to bring us answers in His own time. We can’t take an entitled attitude with Him, for there are going to be many questions that He refuses to answer. If we cherish any insights He is willing to share and if we treat those things as the sacred treasures that they are, then He will be pleased to share more with us. But if we treat the knowledge of God as a cheap, expendable thing which we can use to promote ourselves–or if we try to find ways to go around God and unearth secrets about Him without His help, then we will learn the hard way just how foolish it is for specks like us to scoff at the concept of treating our Creators with respect.

Well, I for one can prove, beyond reasonable doubt, that G-d exists...

First though, you can't question or discount someone's belief anymore than they can set it before you as concrete fact.

When I was growing up, I went to religious school at my synagogue every Sunday. One week the Rabbi took questions from the students. It just so happened that there was a thunderstorm outside that day at that moment.

Eventually he got a question that asked if G-d really existed (these question were all hand written and pre-submitted).

After he had read the question allowed... but before he could answer it, there was a bright flash of lightening, followed by a loud rumble of thunder. Let's put it this way... after that he did not bother answering the question.

For "Ascension Copers": Getting A GF Is The Easy Part (Its Better To "Descend")

My version of "ascension", I call it "descension", since I hated the term "ascension" for what it is used for (chasing a cope), and I wanted my concept of "success" after an incel life to be in opposition of that.

Descension is the exact opposite of ascension, you could say its like the MGTOW version of "ascension", while "ascenders" focus on looks, "descenders" focus on money. The goal of "ascension" is to become more "normie like", get women to like you, date, have sex, maybe get married and have children. The goal of "descension" is to build wealth, try and create sustainable passive income streams, and escortcel, never get married or have children.

I've always seen the obvious problems with ascension which is why everytime I see an incel speak about trying to do that I can't help but think they're stupid.

Ok you finally get a GF, she's likely going to be beneath your league, and there's still nothing stopping her from cheating on you. Like I remember seeing a poster online tell me (it wasn't on this forum)

"Getting a GF is the easy part, now you have to do a bunch of shit to keep her excited and entertained so she doesn't leave you, now you've reached the hard part"

Ironically the further you progress into a relationship, the harder it gets, not easier, you have more to lose, more shit you have to do, more men in her life to be compared against, etc. Just more problems in general.

For example in dating you only really have your dignity to lose if she wants to leave you (well there's also the money you invested into the relationship, and sex), if you are married you have half of your wealth to lose after a divorce, if you have children you can basically lose your children and still have to pay child support. Ascension is an endless game of continuous and painstaking effort just to enjoy mediocre happiness, why bother.

A lot of incels on this site seem very naive, they speak as if the hard part is getting the girl to date you. Quite obviously your problems have only begun at that point, any shortcomings that you were able to hide to get her to date you, will become ever more apparent as the relationship progresses, if she doesn't leave you in the first month then maybe you are "home free".

You see now you have to put in effort every single day, just to keep her around, all the stress and anxiety you felt, it isn't really gone, because first the problem was getting her to fuck you, now your problem is to keep her fucking you, and to keep her from fucking anyone else, your worries don't end when you get a woman, they only just begun. I've been thinking about this shit for years, which is why I've never really bothered with trying to ascend once I learned about the black pill and truly accepted it.

Its an illusion, if you have to TRY to be attractive, then you aren't attractive, so even if you get a female, you will have to KEEP TRYING with that same effort (or even more). Get a surgery to up your looks, good, female SMV is rising each year, and with shit like tinder, what difference does that make, at most any guy on this site ups his looks he'll be a 6, a woman can open tinder and find 50+ 6's willing to fuck in her area. ITS OVER.

I say focus on the elements in life that you can control, this is why "descension" to me is the most logical choice, your money can't cheat on you or leave you, your businesses can't cheat on you or leave you, an escort can't cheat on you or leave you (she isn't yours, you are just renting her body). You don't have to keep stressing everyday about the shit you would have to if you were trying to "ascend".

Ironically a lot of the "ascenders" in their 20's are going to be right back in this forum as incels when they get divorce raped (which is the likely end point of ascension). Out of the frying pan, into the fire. Why bother with that shit.

We haven't even gone into the other problems of "ascension" including your "stunted growth", all the people around you are already good at socializing, hooking up, they have "style", they can hold conversations, etc. You have to teach yourself all of this just to have a chance at getting a GF, and then you have to somehow "learn on the go" to keep up with her so she doesn't feel "weirded out". You're always in a way going to be behind her in the relationship.

Its an uphill battle through and through, that's all ascension is, you know what, I just realized the term fits very well, it is an ascension, and that's the very reason why its an uphill battle, wasted effort really, descend and know that you have the high ground, or end up like dear anakin.

Chuck Baldwin #fundie chuckbaldwinlive.com

[From "You Gotta See This Movie!"]

This Friday, February 21, 2003, a blockbuster movie produced by Ron Maxwell will debut in theaters across America. It is titled Gods And Generals, and it is one movie you must go see!

Gods And Generals is the second of a movie trilogy by Maxwell about the War Between the States. Gettysburg was the first, and there is yet one more in the works.

Gods And Generals could be the most influential and powerful movie to be released since Braveheart. It has the potential to change the hearts, minds, and attitudes of millions of people who disdain the Old Confederacy, who misunderstand Southern slavery, and who hold Christianity in contempt.

The film portrays the life and battlefield campaigns of Lt. General Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson. Any truthful depiction of General Jackson must include his deep Christian convictions. This movie captures those convictions in great detail. In fact, Christianity permeates this movie.

[...]

I encourage all my readers to take advantage of this opportunity to watch a rare, rich, and truly remarkable film. Go see Gods And Generals!

Al-Azhar University #fundie firstthings.com

On Thursday, August 27, 2015, the first part of Iran’s most expensive movie trilogy, “Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah,” opened nationwide in Iran. It took more than eighty months for this movie to be completed. Its primary goal, according to its director Majid Majidi, “is to reclaim the rightful image of Islam, which he said extremists have distorted.”

The Iranian state has partly funded the film, most likely in an attempt to promote a Shiite understanding of the narrative of Muhammad’s life. This, of course, triggered controversy among Sunni Muslims. Al-Azhar University demanded that “Iran refrain from releasing the movie, so that an undistorted image of the prophet can be preserved in the minds of Muslims.”

Amos Moses #fundie disqus.com

(on some story about the Pope)

Reason2012:
Matthew 23.9 "And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven."

Parodyx:
The tired old "Call no man Father" thing. You guys really need new material. That's known as a PRATT (Previously Refuted a Thousand Times).

Amos Moses:
all i see is scripture ..... and then you say "PRATT" ..... scripture has not been refuted ..... ever ..... except by the unregenerate narcissists who are legends in their own minds and are want to believe their own propaganda ............ NUFFIN

Parodyx:
This is a good time to school you on what it means to have an interpretation of the words of scripture. Scripture also says call no man "leader" or "teacher" yet that is somehow acceptable. This is hypocrisy on a grand scale, Amos. What are we to make of the Scriptures that contradict this one? For example, in Mark 7:9-13, Jesus criticizes the Pharisees and scribes for not honoring their "fathers."
Father-son relationships are found all over the Bible. You either have to say that the Bible's contradicting itself or leave room for interpretation, in this case hyperbole in the language used. And let's not forget how many interpretations the original words have already been through.

Amos Moses:
No .... adding to scripture is forbidden .... interpretation of scripture is ADDING to scripture ..... and then it is NO LONGER scripture ........

Parodyx:
No, Amos, interpreting scripture is what you do when you read it. Your brain decides for you what the words mean. And the problem is that what your brain comes up with is going to be different from what another Christian's brain comes up with.
No one's adding anything by interpreting it.

Amos Moses:
"interpreting scripture is what you do when you read it"
NO .... when you read it .... it says what it says ..... when you "interpret it" ..... you try to make it say what you want and NOT what it said ........ so NOT scripture at that point ........

Parodyx:
Here's another dictionary definition for you, since you seem to need them so often:
INTERPRET - v. explain the meaning of (information, words, or actions)."the evidence is difficult to interpret"synonyms:explain, elucidate, expound, explicate, clarify, illuminate, shed light on

Amos Moses:
nope ...... we are not allowed to bring our "interpretation" to the word of God ...... expository reading is not interpretation ...... another synonym is exegesis ....... we do not go to the text with our preconceived notion of what it says and then come up with our theology ....... we read what it says and take our theology from it .......... the dictionary gives a general idea but it lacks specificity ..... scripture interprets scripture ....... not the dictionary ...........

Just because Wikipedia says it does not mean it is so. If you look at other Wikipedia pages, such as the timeline starting several billion years ago, you will see that it is partial towards the unscientific theories known as the Big Bang and neo-Darwinism.

[I am sure yu can show how it is unscientific. What is neo-Darwinism, is it like neo-Eisteinism? I am also sure you can show evidence beyond the bible that those scientific theories are indeed not true.]

Neo-Darwinism is another term for macro-evolution, a theory that claims that dinosaurs, humans, eggplants, and bacteria all share a common ancestor.
