The News I Didn’t Write About Yesterday

I suppose stuff like this is only to be expected in an age when Real Smart People with advanced degrees argue, with a straight face, that it’s rational and praiseworthy to become disabled on purpose ( ). They advance very smart-sounding–but utterly vacuous–intellectual “reasons” for having sound, healthy limbs amputated.

Even so, when I read yesterday that the National Basketball Assn. has joined the National Football League in threatening the state of North Carolina that the state will lose major sporting events unless its legislators restore the “right”–really: the right?–of a grown man to enter a girls’ bathroom with girls in it, I could not continue. That our country could have ever come to this…

Because North Carolina does not accept that a man has a “right” to use the ladies’ bathroom, the whole American ruling class is coming down on the state like a ton of bricks. New York City and state, Vermont, and San Francisco mayors and governors have banned official travel to North Carolina. Chambers of commerce, huge corporations, and other business entities have threatened to pull out of North Carolina unless this “right” is restored.

Oh, well, it’s only public rest rooms, is that the hill to die on?

The retreat of decency (not to mention sanity!) has got to stop somewhere.

I join with those readers who have cited Acts 4:29.

And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word…

Big sports, big business, big politics–in the name of the most holy God, we defy you.

  1. Satanic evil madness has overtaken this nation, but what more can we expect in a nation that has turned its back on The One Holy and True God. Judgment has come to America. This puts me in mind of the Chuck Girard hymn ‘Soldiers Of The Lion’ because we are a tiny band of warriors. Maybe we could hear that again, Lee?

  2. Insanity on steroids! Madness. Even though the nation as a whole has gone totally nuts, yet God “has 7,000 people who have not bowed the knee to Baal. ” However, that will change for the worse soon, as they are erecting a replica of the temple of Ba’al in Times Square. Wow!

    1. Yes, Erlene, and they’re doing the same in London. The people entreated Aaron to make them a golden calf. It appears humans are still looking to the golden calf. Come Lord Jesus!

  3. Yes, it’s a hill to die on! I can only imagine the pressure N.C.’s governor is under. I’ll be impressed and heartened if he manages to weather the storm, but somehow I doubt it. With all the power that the liberal media can wield, you have to have strong, true convictions to stand against it. And if you’re in power, it generally means you were willing to compromise at some point somewhere and that you’ll do so again.
    Of course, there’s also the stuff they can do in secret, like threaten him or his family or to expose unpleasant details about him.

    I love how they call it ‘restoring the right’ when … there never was such a right, so how can it be restored? And what exactly is the point? Yeah, we get there are confused people in the world. Let’s not turn around and confuse everyone else!
