Original Sin? ‘Hate Speech,’ Facebook Says

Image result for images of happy puppies

[Thanks to Susan for the news tip]

Love turns into hate when secular social media bigwigs encounter it.

Christian blogger Ginger Taylor was banned from Facebook for seven days for quoting St. Augustine on the central Christian doctrine of Original Sin–which the barbarians at Facebook decided was “hate speech” (https://adventuresinautism.blogspot.com/2019/07/i-am-blocked-from-facebook-for-seven.html?fbclid=IwAR1TaS2P2xWkhObKiPhy6bD-4b33XJwMMI02liFxJgEgzsmjhaZuv-OYOq0).

Uh, why do we need a Savior, if there’s no Original Sin? But God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

This is “hate”?

Now, if we were able to save ourselves just being piling up good works and being nice guys, why would we need the Son of God? Why would the Word need to become flesh, be born into this world, live among us, and be crucified, dead, and buried? Why should Christ have needed to be atonement for our sins, if we can simply cleanse ourselves by works of the flesh?

This is the original Christian doctrine, this is the whole point of Christianity–and Facebook calls it “hate speech.” God’s sublime love for His creation–for us!–becomes, in their eyes, “hate.” Why? Because God knows what we are and loves us anyway, and knows how to sanctify us by His sovereign grace? Because He won’t give us participation trophies and “Good job!” refrigerator magnets?

And now let’s see if FB lets me post this…


Are These People Quite All There?

If you don’t like her Green New Deal, you must be a racist!

Have Democrats lost their minds?

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, a big chunk of Democrats, 32 percent of ’em, assert that it’s “racist for any white politician to criticize the political views of a politician of color” (https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/2019/07/17/nolte-poll-shows-media-attack-on-trump-squad-tweets-backfired/).

So, if a politician Of Color–do we need a trumpet fanfare for those two words?–stands up in the House of Representatives and says “Repeal the First Amendment,” it would be “racist” for any “white” politician to take issue with that bizarre statement? Thirty-two percent of Democrats say yes, it would.

And that’s only the 32 percent who aren’t afraid to expose themselves as dyed in the wool idiots.

Sorry, but this party has to go: the Democrat Party needs to be over.

Shame on America’s voters if that party survives the next election.


Governed by… This?

The Squad to Re-Elect President Trump

You should closely examine this quote. These are the words of Ayanna Pressley, Democrat (of course) from Massachusetts–one of the four Far Left Crazies who have somehow managed to seize the steering wheel of the Democrat Party.

Here it is.

“We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice… We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice.”

Now, Democrats in the House of Representatives do say the darnedest things. Think of Rep. Hank Johnson wondering if the island of Guam would “tip over and capsize” if any more Marines were stationed on it. But Pressley’s quote is miles worse.

She is saying that you are defined by your physical characteristics, such as skin color, and everyone who has that characteristic had also better have exactly the same beliefs. She and her fellow loonies on “The Squad”–Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib–are self-anointed “women of color” and anyone who disagrees with them about anything, even fellow Democrats, is a Racist.

So if you’re “black,” you’ve got to think black. How do you do that? How do you find out what’s the official Black People’s Position that you’d better conform to or else? Who gets to say what that position is? (You can probably guess the answer to that one.)

Of course, this is just boilerplate Demo-dreck that’s been fermenting for a long time and has finally burst the bottle. This is what always was behind the mask.

I realize there are millions of people who will vote Democrat even if they strongly disagree with everything the Democrat candidate stands for, simply because they–and probably their mothers and fathers before them–have always voted Democrat and always will. I find that very hard to understand, but I know it’s a reality. No matter how far off the deep end the Party goes, these millions of unthinking voters will go with them.

And that’s how we could get open borders, more transgender stuff, a 70% tax rate, jail time for Climbit Change Denial, and all the rest of the Democrat deluxe fun-pack.

America will not be safe until the voters put the Democrat Party permanently out of business. The Democrat Party is an existential threat to the survival of our republic and must be utterly defeated.


Poor Beto!

The latest Beto rally

I hope the Democrats will be giving out participation trophies and “Good Job!” refrigerator magnets to the crowd of nimrods seeking their 2020 presidential nomination.

Francis O’Rourke, alias “Beto,” has racked up a cool 0 %–that’s Zero Percent–in a St. Anselm College poll (https://dailycaller.com/2019/07/16/beto-zero-percent-fundraising/). His fund-raising is also way down, but the St. Anselm poll is important because it’s in New Hampshire and that’s where the Democrat primary begins.

Zip, zero, nada–it’s as close to jolly unanimous as it’s possible to be. And this on the heels of him giving a positively endearing speech on what a no-good stinkin’ lousy country America is, built entirely on slavery and Jim Crow… two institutions which his political party energetically defended. I mean, you’d think that’d have voters swarming onto his bandwagon. “Right, dig it, America sucks!”

(The president’s right. If they hate it so much, they should leave. Prominent liberal jidrools are always threatening to do that, but of course they’re all still here. Libs just never tell the truth.)

At this point we wonder if Beto’s own mother has any plans to vote for him.

She’s the one with the fake nose and glasses.


Did Hillary and Obama Cover Up a State Dept. Pedophilia Sex Scandal?

See the source image

Never again!

I missed this story in 2013, as did a lot of people. But the nooze media did make mention of it, and here’s the video.

https://710wor.iheart.com/featured/mark-simone/content/2019-07-15-remember-when-hillary-clinton-covered-up-a-pedophilia-scandal/

NBC News reported that a U.S. ambassador “routinely ditched” his security personnel so he could pursue sexual liaisons with prostitutes and minor children–and that the investigation into this was “quashed” by orders from the highest levels of government.

And then the story went away.

What do you think would’ve happened to it if it had been about an ambassador appointed by Donald Trump and a cover-up ordered by someone in his administration? Do you think that story would’ve gone away?

The problem with Democrats is that they are altogether lawless, they never obey the law if they can break it, and the media always runs interference for them. True, NBC did report the story–but they didn’t exactly stick with it and dig up all the details, did they? And now that Obama has been canonized, the only “reporting” they’re going to do on his administration will be more in the nature of interior decorating.

Why wasn’t this ambassador removed from his office and charged with a crime? They could have at least sacked him, even if there was insufficient evidence to prove a criminal case.

Usually for leftids, the accusation is the evidence. Ask Brett Kavanagh: he knows all about that.


Are These People Totally Kidding?

You remember the Democrats. You know–the party that booed God at its national convention. The party of abortion at birth, transgender, drag queen-ism, and banning Christmas. Those Democrats.

If you’re a Christian voter, they’ve got a plan to recruit you (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6kGP5lOwsw).

While you’re at it, we’ve got the Brooklyn Bridge for sale.

See, they don’t want to concede “the evangelical vote” to Republicans anymore, despite having energetically done everything they could to alienate it. So far, Corey “Spartacus” Booker and Pete “Ooh, My Husband!” Buttigieg have hired “faith advisors.” And the Democrat National Committee has hired an “anti-Trump pastor” from Union “Theological Seminary,” where their latest caper is teaching something called “rejoicing in the queerness of God.”

Hint: don’t trade places with these characters on Judgment Day.

Does any Democrat even know what an “evangelical” is? Resorting to what we charitably call “the religions left” (instead of the more accurate “pagans”) to win over evangelicals is hilariously off the mark. But this is a party that has completely lost touch with normal people.

Why is it that when I write the nooze, it feels like writing satire?


‘San Fran Not Waiting for the Earthquake’ (2016)

They’re gonna need a bigger bridge

We don’t believe in God’s judgment, even when it comes right down on our heads.

Anyway, you know you’ve got troubles when your city’s own tourist board complains that the place is done going to the dogs and is now going to the buzzards.

Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin…


We’re Back (and Here’s Some Nooze: Erasing George Washington)

See the source image

(We had to go to the hospital today for Patty to have a CT scan, don’t ask me why, and then off to the supermarket, and now… some nooze.)

Eighty-three years ago, a Russian-born communist painted a huge mural (1,600 feet long) on the walls of what is now a public high school in the San Francisco school district. His theme was the life of George Washington, and he chose to emphasize Washington as a slave owner and a persecutor of Native Americans. Why this thing was painted in the first place–at public expense–is a mystery to me. But it was 1935, and on Franklin D. Roosevelt’s watch, a lot of hammer-and-sickle-friendly artwork got created.

Now the San Francisco school board has decided to destroy it (https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/california-school-board-voted-paint-021440930.html). Seems it makes the students “uncomfortable.”

When I was a kid in school, everybody used to mock the Soviets for constantly rewriting history. Now we do it, too.

But this is complicated, because the mural was, all along, a rewrite of history, and rather a hostile one at that. Academics all around are pleading with the board not to rewrite it again by painting over the mural with some pap about minority self-esteem.

Yes, George Washington owned slaves. At the time, slavery was lawful in every region of the earth. That doesn’t mean it was good. There were already abolitionists at work, like Betsy Ross and, later, William Wilburforce, who led the successful fight to abolish slavery in the British Empire, legislated by Parliament in 1833.

George Washington does not need me to defend him. Take away Washington, and the United States is never born. And this world, fallen though it is, would be infinitely the poorer for that.

Today we love to judge historical figures by our own moral and legal standards of 2019. But how would we fare, if they judged us by theirs?

But the Lord our God judges all; and we do well to remember it.


Running Scared

https://www.nicolaginzler.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/wile-e-coyote2.jpg

Can we count the ways in which all sorts of people are trying to scare us?

The world’s gonna end (that scares everybody), therefore: you gotta grow the government, gotta pay more and more taxes, elect more Democrats, donate to more Democrats, donate to Planned Parenthood, give up your car, eat bugs…

The U.N. is always trying to get normal people in Western countries to eat bugs. I find it rather sinister.

Conservatives want to scare us. Poll shows Beto 99 points ahead of Trump! Fantastic turnout at Elizabeth Warren rally! 17 million illegals set to vote Democrat! Liberals play the same kind of tune to their people, but I won’t get into that because liberals are scary in and of themselves. They’re probably raising funds by telling their people that Trump is 99 points ahead in the Schlabotnik Poll.

Pharmaceutical companies want to scare us. Insurance companies want to scare us. Teacher unions try to scare us, too–“more money for teachers, or your kids will grow up stupid!” Although it’s cheaper having them grow up stupid without teachers than with teachers.

I’m so scared, I could actually run off a cliff and not know it till I looked down.

Are all these scare tactics a good thing for our country? I remember Joe Biden telling a black audience, in reference to Milquetoast Mitt Romney and Pitiful Paul Ryan, “They wanna put y’all back in chains!” I hope we are not expected to respect people who believed this. I even dare hope that no one did. I believe in daring big.

What won’t they do to get us to give them money?

We’re nowhere near to finding out.


Third Whopper (You Won’t Believe It)

Police said the mom was trying to keep the pool from flying away as she drove.

For those of you who’ve been following Oy, Rodney here on this blog on Sundays, you’re already family with weird stories involving wading pools. But this one’s from real life.

Police in Dixon, Illinois, arrested a 49-year-old woman–old enough to know better–for driving around with an inflated wading pool on the roof of her car… and her two daughters sitting in it “to keep it from flying away” (https://abcnews.go.com/US/mom-arrested-driving-inflatable-pool-car-kids-inside/story?id=64248083).

Not even Violet Crepuscular could have dreamed up foolishness like this.

The woman is charged with endangering the children. The J-school genius who wrote the story didn’t give the daughters’ ages. Not that there’s any age that’s good for sitting on the roof of a moving car.

She didn’t tie it down. Didn’t deflate it, fold it up, and safely stow it in the trunk. No. This potential Democrat presidential candidate just put the pool up there on the roof of her car and had her kids sit in it. Happily, before anything really bad could happen, someone saw this pageant of folly when he happened to look out the window, and called the police.

How much public money, do you suppose, was spent on this woman’s education? Where do we go to get a refund?
