It stands to reason that big-box retail establishments like Walmart or Target should be places where families feel comfortable taking their kids. All year around, that is. But there's a problem, and it stems from a phenomenon that one sees in social issues.

Every social controversy - civil rights, same-sex marriage, you name it - starts with some legitimate grievances. But the problem is that there is a lot of money in social activism, and plenty of the more vocal advocates end up as minor-league celebrities, and so when the movement achieves their goal, they can't just fold up their tents and go back to their regular lives. No, the movement has to keep going so the graft can be kept up, and that requires the issue to become more and more ridiculous, and the request for acceptance becomes demands for approval and then for celebration until the whole thing descends into absurdity.

Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin was attacked over his statements that homosexuality is not supported by the Catholic faith, which is true, but this is indicative of the problem with pride. Pride is not about getting society to treat people equally, that has been happening for decades, it’s about people supporting, celebrating, and assaulting anyone who questions homosexuality. Pride isn’t about love, homosexuals can celebrate love the same way anyone else can, nobody is stopping them from celebrating their relationships like everyone else, this is about mass endorsement being conflated with acceptance.

The only true difference between gays and everyone else is the physical act of their sexuality, and therefore, the only point in Pride is the celebration of that specific physical act. Pride parades are a good example of this because that act is on extreme, near pornographic display, most certainly as a way for them to “get back at the man” in typical childish fashion. The fact that television networks are pushing rainbow flags, and stores are selling children’s shirts with Pride flags on it is something I think we should all speak out against, nobody wants their young child exposed to sexual ideas, but the mob of Pride will attack you for even suggesting otherwise.

The issue with the emotional rhetoric surrounding Pride is that we aren’t having a “discussion” about homosexuality, it’s a hostage negotiation. If you aren’t waving a rainbow flag and telling your children that they should be gay you are a hateful awful monster who should be thrown in the gulag. It is time we start having the hard discussions about what is acceptable to push on children, and you’re going to have to put your foot down and accept that the unreasonable Left is going to call you names for it, but it’s unacceptable that our children are the targets of political rhetoric specifically to weaponize them against their parents.

Leftist Narratives Crumble After Union Station Swastika Culprit Is Identified

You’ll probably notice the dates on those tweets are from last Friday, but there has actually been an update to this story. In fact, according to the Washington Examiner, a person has been arrested and identified for perpetrating the act.

Have you seen that reported by any mainstream news outlet? I bet you haven’t, and there’s a very specific reason for that: This crime doesn’t fit the preferred narrative.

If you thought tearing down statues of George Washington would satiate the thirst of some BLM activists, you haven’t seen anything yet. But who am I kidding? No one thought they’d stop with confederate statues, nor with the founding fathers. Now, they are moving onto Jesus.
Yes, I’m serious. Here’s noted BLM activist (and also noted white guy) Shaun King.

Shaun King: "Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down.

They are a form of white supremacy.

Always have been.

In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went?


Not Denmark.

Tear them down.


All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down.

They are a gross form white supremacy.

Created as tools of oppression.
Racist propaganda.

They should all come down."

I’m gonna go with Denmark not existing during the time of Christ for starters. Or perhaps our Lord and Savior just wasn’t a fan of the cold?
Jokes aside, this is absolutely astonishing, but also not surprising. Nothing is sacred anymore, not even religious depictions of Christ. King doesn’t even blink in calling for the destruction of statues of Jesus. He even manages to throw in the destruction of murals as well. Everything is white supremacy and must go.
Regardless, his claims are farcical anyway. Jesus wasn’t white, nor was he black. He did not go to Egypt to “blend in” because he was black. History tells us Jesus was Jewish, born in Galilee, and almost certainly olive skinned. Those paintings of a well tanned Jesus may not get the hairstyle right, but the skin tone is pretty much on point. I know that may rankle some people, but those of us with heritage in the Middle East win the looks portion of whatever ridiculous contest this is.
It feels silly to even have to discuss this as adults, but with BLM activists now calling for the destruction of “white” Jesus statues, my hand is kind of being forced. None of this is going to stop. First it was confederate statues. Then it was problematic founders. Then it was General Grant. Heck, even Ghandi didn’t escape their wrath.
Going after Jesus was the natural progression and here we are.

If you are a young black person living in America, who are your heroes? Not George Washington Carver, Booker T Washington, nor Clarence Thomas. It isn't even Bill Cosby, Magic Johnson, or Muhammad Ali. It is some rapper wearing his pants around his hips and mouthing trash about "ho's", rape, and about every perversion you can imagine. Heck, most black kids don't even want to be the Post-turtle in Chief (POTUS). He got the black vote to stick a finger in the eye of the white candidate.

People like Sharpton, Jackson, and virtually every NAACP President ignore this, the violence that is caused by young black men on the streets, and the fact that they committed the crime so should do the time.

[Here I want to address Senator Portman directly.]

To state it bluntly, Senator Portman, Christianity, the Word of God, and the proper view of homosexuality has nothing to do with you or your changing perspective. It has everything to do with the unchanging Word of God. Your attempt to cloak your opinion by distorting the Word of God is not only offensive but blasphemous. I encourage you to open your Bible and read what it says about false teachers and those who add to or take away from the Word of God.

I understand that your son is a homosexual. As a Christian you are called to love him but you cannot condone his sin and encourage others to do the same. Principles are higher than our individual circumstances. Principles do not change because the circumstances in our lives change.

He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it. (Matthew 10:37-39)

Condoning the sin of homosexuality will not help your son to lead a “happy, meaningful” life. He cannot lead such a life in direct opposition to the Word of the Lord. You have taken the easy path and it will only lead to sin and death, error, and worse.

My prayers are with you and your family but Christians must not let your attempt to pervert the Word of God to fit your own personal life go unchallenged.

African-Americans also clearly rejected fiscal conservatism in 2012. They voted overwhelmingly for Obama and turned out in large numbers because many felt that a Republican victory would cut off the supply of government goodies. They do not care that government welfare destroyed the African American family and thus condemned and still condemns many of their youth to perpetual unemployment and prison. They are addicted to government largesse and view the government as their lord, provider, and saviour. Clearly, continuing the government largesse is more important to black Christians than supporting the Biblical concepts of marriage, the family, and opposing infanticide and abortion – even when the abortion of black babies has reached the level of genocide.

Erick Erickson #fundie redstate.com

In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly today the President of the United States declared that the future does not belong to practicing Christians. Already, the media and the left are in full denial, probably based on their general lack of understanding of theology. This would have been a gaffe had Mitt Romney said it. But with Barack Obama, he’s just speaking bold truths. His bold truth declares that the future does not belong to practicing Christians.

Pay careful attention to what he says.

The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims. It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the vision we will support.

Now, that’s the full paragraph so no one can claim I took him out of context.

But consider this.

It is an orthodox Christian belief that Mohammed is not a prophet. Actual Christians, as opposed to many of the supposed Christians put up by the mainstream media, believe that Christ is the only way to salvation. Believing that is slandering Mohammed. That’s just a fact. If you don’t believe me, you go into the MIddle East and proclaim Christ is the way, the truth, and the life and see what happens to your life.

Then Barack Obama went on to say “Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied.” Note he says we cannot “slander the prophet of Islam” but it’s only the image of Christ in the next sentence — not actually Christ himself desecrated. If this is so, why does Barack Obama’s government continue funding the National Endowment for the Arts, which funded Christ in piss, the Virgin Mary painted in dung, etc.?

The serious problem of bullying in junior high and high school has received some overdue attention lately. Lee Hirsch’s documentary Bully is in theaters and highly recommended.

But don’t think that bullying in academic settings is exclusively a phenomenon of adolescence. Adults also bully adults. That’s what is happening now at Emory University in Atlanta.

You can be a brilliant, innovative pediatric neurosurgeon at a sky-scraping top medical school, in addition to being a generous philanthropist with an inspirational up-from-dire-poverty personal story, plus a Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, and a best-selling writer whose memoir was turned into a TV movie starring Cuba Gooding Jr.

But in the hands of academic bullies, if you once shared your critical thoughts on evolutionary science and its moral implications — well, everything else about you suddenly dwindles to very little.

Dr. Ben Carson of Johns Hopkins University is today’s target[...]

Dr. Carson’s unwelcoming welcome sends a message to less renowned and therefore less bullet-proof scholars. If they open their mouth to question Darwin, fellow academics will not only disagree but will hurt them by misrepresenting their opinions.

Imagine the results if he were someone else: a young scientist seeking a strong start to his career, a not so young but still untenured scientist with his livelihood to protect, even a tenured academic worried about his reputation and the future careers of his own grad students.

This is how Darwinists maintain the fiction that the scientific community has reached a freely determined “consensus” in favor of Darwinian evolution and against intelligent design. The consensus is maintained by intimidation, by bullying.

It’s a farce, but for vulnerable people in academic life, a scary farce.

I felt as if the world were in a haze, that was the day after Obama got elected. I knew then we were living on borrowed time, today was the end of the USA, welcome USSA. For Millions of Americans, their freedoms have been seized and dismembered as of today, they just do not know it—..yet. But they will, and it is too late to do anything about it. Soon there will be a requirement to be ID chipped, oh, it will be sold as something good, but it will be the branding of a slave, only this brand will enable the person to be tracked.
Some will wonder, “Why is the military allowing our country to be taken over by communists?” Why? Because they are in on it. A tracked population can be controlled.
How can they track? Heard about those new “hardened” computer systems? Heard about the new GPS satellites? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this stuff out!
But it doesn’t matter, you see, it was predicted 2000 years ago what would happen. We are right on track.

I can’t help but to follow the logic. “Doctor” Tiller is committing late-term abortions, which by any sane person’s calculation is infanticide. This is murder. Through perversion of the law, this is permitted, despite it flying the face of the history of civilization. This has been tolerated for two decades, and nothing has happened to stop the killing. He would have continued to commit this crime.

I can’t escape the conclusion that killing Tiller was the right thing to do. I am uncomfortable with this conclusion because it’s dangerous. But nevertheless, it was the ethical thing to do. Tiller would have continued to take numerous lives. Nothing was going to stop him. So someone did stop him. And now fewer lives will be taken.

We celebrate the breaking the laws every time the media canonizes Rosa Parks. She broke the law. There is no question of that. The question is whether it was the ethical thing to do (it was.) We celebrate the Nazi resistance, we celebrate the Tiananmen Square uprising. I’m sure those were all illegal actions, yet were unquestionably the moral things to do. So how would killing a killer, when all options are exhausted, not also be the right thing to do?

You have to wonder if the reason why we have a legal system is in order to steal the oxygen from moral vigilantism. You have to wonder if the legal system breaks down whether vigilantism, when all other options fail, becomes a moral imperative.

It’s likely even Jesus would have OK’d water boarding if it would have saved his Mom. He would’ve done the same to save his Dad, or any one of His disciples. For that matter, He even died to save all humans.

TeamSarah has compiled over 15 pages of evidence on file from this conspiracy. Thank you to the extremist liberals who have provided fresh evidence as to what really is going on: that they send in “clones” (false identities) to say and do things that we do not tolerate, and, in the short time it takes us to find and eliminate these posts take a screen shot of them, and then post about it in poorly managed liberal websites, ones that have abandoned all journalistic standards, from which it gets echoes throughout the liberal blogosphere as if true.

Poorly managed sites such as, apparently, the $100 million Huffington Post which seems not to care about even the most basic standards of fairness in reporting. I guess that kind of money can be blinding, but: “What does it profit a man to gain the world and lose his (or her) soul“?

[On Dumbledore being revealed as gay.]

I suppose Rowling thought she knew best, and since it is often impossible to teach an old dog new tricks, why not work on their children. What's that term for people who think they know what's best for others, who are controlling, and seek to impose their ideas on others either overtly through force or by more subtle manipulation and subversion? Oh Yeah: fascist.
