Harvard: ‘Gender’ Changes Day to Day

Image result for images of huge pile of money, man with pitchfork

A Harvard degree used to be something you could look up to. Now you don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

According to a new Harvard University “fact sheet” (LOL), paid for by university funds (tuition and grants: that is, your money, stupid), a person’s gender can “change day by day.” (http://www.christianpost.com/news/harvard-university-lgbt-fact-sheet-claims-gender-can-change-from-day-to-day-181401/)

Wow, fancy that. Gotta change the Bar Mitzvah. “Today I am a man” must give way to “Today I am whatevuh.”

The “fact sheet” (LMAO) also informs students that such hateful and biggited actions as “misgendering” can “threaten the lives of trans people.” Did you know that?

By the way, the cost of a degree from Harvard, if you can earn it in four years instead of five or six, is more than a quarter of a million smackers ( https://college.harvard.edu/financial-aid/how-aid-works/cost-attendance). That’s according to Harvard itself.

You want to send your kid to Harvard because __________. Go ahead, fill in the blank. We could all use a laugh.

Sacraments of Humanism: Sex Education

Image result for images of sex education

We wonder why public school “educators” are always so hot to trot for sex education–and the younger the children in the classroom, the more eagerly the educators swing into action. In Britain, as reported earlier today, they now want to go after two-year-olds. (https://leeduigon.com/2017/04/19/uk-teachers-vote-sex-ed-for-2-year-olds/)

It’s because what they like to call “sex education” is a sacrament of a false religion, secular humanism. The other humanist sacraments are sodomy, transgenderism, abortion, and assisted suicide.

Another big question is why parents, even Christian parents, continue to allow believers in that false religion to educate their children, day in, day out, and year after year.

Rather large  books can be, and have been, written on this subject. This is only a blog post. It’s my way of urging parents and families to stop subjecting their children to public education.

Years ago, I worked most days as a substitute teacher at a public high school, called in to teach any and all subjects with only one exception–sex education. No substitute was ever called in for that. If the teacher was absent, an assistant principal had to supervise the class.

To keep parents from ever knowing exactly what was being taught, the textbooks were never allowed to be taken out of the classroom. Students complained that this made it hard for them to study for tests and quizzes, but that was the policy and the administration was not about to change it.

A student or a teacher in a public school can fall into a world of trouble by openly expressing any kind of faithfulness to Christian teaching. “You can be a boy one day and a girl the next, depending on how you feel.” This is, increasingly, what is being taught.

The Coalition of African-American Pastors, just to name one of many groups of concerned citizens and Christians, has warned that this kind of indoctrination is not going to go away, it is going to be made more intense as time goes by, and if we leave it alone and do nothing to stop it, our society will be severely damaged by it.

They couldn’t be more right. (http://caapusa.org/2017/04/beware-those-who-have-their-heads-in-the-sand-over-transgender-issues/ )

UK Teachers Vote: Sex Ed for 2-Year-Olds

Image result for images of crazy teachers

Every time I get myself geared up for a healthy breath of postmillenial optimism, along comes a story like this.

Across the Atlantic in Britain (which means it’ll be coming our way pretty soon), the National Union of Teachers–dig the acronym: NUT–has voted to teach very young children in nursery schools, some as young as two years old, about same-sex “relationships” and transgenderism (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4419808/Give-nursery-children-lessons-sex-relationships.html#ixzz4eZNdLQUn).

The NUTs say this is necessary, to “challenge homophobia and transphobia” and combat “hate crimes.”

Gee, you would think Britain was knee-deep in sodomites being tossed off the roofs of tall buildings by guess-who, along with angry mobs of peasants with scythes and pitchforks chasing after poor little transgender whatsits. Actually, the NUTs give no evidence whatsoever that “hate crimes” are a problem in Britain. No facts, no figures, no nothing. Just take their word for it so they can teach your two-year-old son that he ought to try being a girl for a while, he might like it.

Of course, libs and progs and gay activists never, never, never have to prove anything they say. It would be a hate crime in and of itself, to demand they prove their point.

OK, Britain, you tell us–why is this a good idea? Why do you just sit there and put up with it?

Well, all right, you did manage Brexit and that was a big job, well done. Maybe this ought to be the next order of business.

Because these loony “teachers” of ours, all throughout the Western world, are servants of Satan (whether they know it or not–and he enjoys it most when they say they don’t believe in him) and they are killing our culture.

O Lord Our God, give us strength and courage and lead us to victory over these worse than Philistines.

Free With Your Salad–Live Scorpion!

I’m not even sure why I’m reporting this news. Like, we already know it’s a fallen world and falling farther by the day.

A couple in Chevy Chase, Maryland, was a bit put off this week when they found a live scorpion in their bag of spinach ( https://www.nbcmiami.com/news/weird/Couple-Finds-Live-Scorpion-in-Bag-of-Spinach-419101614.html ). Check out the video in the link: it’s alive, all right.

They bought the spinach at a Giant supermarket.

Not to be confused with the folks who, a few days earlier, found a dead bat–yup, I said a dead bat–in their bag of salad mix, purchased at a Wal-Mart store in Florida.

What’s going on with our food packaging? Have our tech companies been put in charge of it? That’s about what I’d expect from them.

I dunno. What’s going on with the rest of our civilized institutions? Will free universal college cure it? How’s about everybody in the USA has to stay in school until they get a Ph.D.? Then we’ll be the smartest nation of idiots that ever graced the earth.

The California Nightmare

Image result for images of lgbt classroom

California wants to be a state where there are no immigration laws and where those people who, for some strange reason, continue to work are rigorously taxed to provide free stuff for those who don’t.

On top of that, California now wants its public schools to be, by law and not just custom, indoctrination centers for homosexuality: and as the biggest school textbook market in the country, it has the power to get this message shoehorned into textbooks nationwide ( https://www.thenewamerican.com/culture/education/item/25731-california-textbooks-must-promote-lgbtq-agenda ).

Under the state’s hypocritically-named “Fair Education Act,” California school textbooks will be sin-friendly–as befits the California Dept. of Education’s boast to be “the leading edge of LGBT content in schools.”

Second-graders will be taught all about “diverse families,” eighth-graders will learn about “gender roles,” and high school juniors will be immersed in the history of “the LBGT civil rights movement.”

Textbook publishers are expected to go along with it, all the way: they can’t afford to ignore the demands of their biggest market.

This is wickedness. What California dreams of doing to itself, I can’t imagine.

Even harder to imagine is why any parents who love and respect their sons and daughters continue to send them to the public schools to be taught that evil is good and good is evil.

If anybody out there has an answer, we’d love to hear it.

I Wake Up Screaming

Monarch butterfly: God’s stuff is still sane and beautiful. A lot of our stuff isn’t.

Once when I was a toddler, my aunts took me to the circus and the clowns freaked me out, which led to a sleepless night for all concerned.

But those clowns were nothing, compared to what we’ve got to cope with today.

Our debased secular culture’s pursuit of ugliness now features some male “actress”–that’s what he calls himself, five o’clock shadow and all–denouncing “outdated beauty standards” and declaring that “body hair norms need to change” ( https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/04/05/red-carpet-appearance-makes-gender-nonbinary-actress-question-body-hair-standards/ ).

As Major Hoople would say, “Fap!”

If this is beautiful, then the word “beauty” has lost its meaning.

It is not beautiful. It is the stuff of nightmare. If what this person has done to himself doesn’t bum you out, then nothing can bum you out. Unless you’re a liberal. Then it’s the good things that bum you out.

I was going to write this as a humorous piece, but the photo embedded in the news story put the kibosh on that idea. This stuff is not sane. Linda, who sent me the link to this item, calls it demonic. I am compelled to agree.

‘Diverse’ Characters Drive Down Marvel Comics Sales

Image result for images of comic thor as woman

You’re supposed to outgrow comic books, hopefully by the time you’re 12 years old or so. Nevertheless, every summer brings another batch of movies based on stupid comic books.

Well, Marvel Comics sales are in the toilet, and the company president in charge of sales made a huge faux pas recently by saying the reason the sales are down is because Marvel’s “diversity push” has turned a lot of people off ( http://atlantablackstar.com/2017/04/04/marvel-vp-claims-sales-due-diversity-push-quickly-walks-back-statement/ ).

“We saw the sales of any character that was diverse… people are turning their nose up against.”

Oops. Shouldn’t have said that. So now he has to recant, but it’s always hard to lasso the truth once you’ve let it out of the paddock. Maybe he can claim sales are down because the Russians hacked their system.

By the way, how does any individual, superhero or just plain schlub, be “diverse”? Multiple personality disorder?

Well, what do they expect? They turn The Mighty Thor into a woman (!), Captain America into a crypto-Nazi, and try to represent every known ethnic group with a caped superhero–I mean, is that mind-numbingly tedious, or what?

Adults still fixated on comic books: I call it culture rot.

Something to Think About

Image result for images of henry van til

Henry Van Til, a Professor of Bible at Calvin College, Michigan, died in 1961 and is best known for a single thing he once said: “Culture is religion externalized.”

It’s a truism, on a par with “What you say and do reveals your personality.” There’s no way to deny it.

If our Western culture today is our religion externalized, our Christianity is in deep trouble. Look at our culture–rampant lawlessness among our supposed lawmakers, same-sex pseudomarriage, transgenderism, lies heaped upon lies, ultra-violent video games, sex robots: I could make a longer list, but it’s starting to depress me. No wonder radical Muslims think Western culture is like ripe fruit on the tree, ready to fall into their laps if they keep on shaking the tree.

This is why I spend so much time reporting on culture developments–culture rot and culture collapse, if you will. Because if we can’t maintain our culture, nothing we can do politically will make the slightest difference. Kill the culture, and the culture will kill you right back.

For a thoughtful essay on this subject, courtesy of George Grant, see https://christianculture.com/discover/what-is-culture-religion-externalized/

For the time being, and to come, it’s something to think about.

The New Improved Sex-Bot

Image result for images of baby cuddling with mother

The old-fashioned way of learning how to love…

With some of these news stories, you don’t know whether to laugh maniacally or just sit down and cry.

A California company called RealDoll is about to release for sale a new, improved sex doll which “goes beyond the sexual” and “could teach us to be better humans,” blah-blah, says the company president ( http://www.vocativ.com/409728/can-sex-robots-teach-us-to-be-better-humans/ ). For $10,000, the basic no-frills model might “train people to be nicer to each other.”

Families used to do that. And churches. Even dogs and cats and hamsters used to do that.

The doll comes complete with a “love meter”–sorry, I didn’t ask, and neither should you–to measure to what extent the machine has fallen in love with you. For the most part, they say, “customers develop relationships with the doll.”

O Lord our God, remember that these things are done without our consent, against our will, and over our objections. Jesu defend us, amen.

A New Phone Scam

Image result for images of robot on phone

So my wife answered the phone this morning and it was a computer-generated robot voice saying that “The federal government has filed a lawsuit against you…”

Ooh, that sounds scary! Would that be the whole federal government, collectively, suing us, or just some part of it? The robot didn’t say. IRS, Dept. of Defense, Homeland Security, NASA, Dept. of Agriculture–you could spend all day listing them, and still not finish. Oh, the suspense! Which agency of the federal government is gunning for us?

Not to worry, though. The robot said all we had to do was call this number which, as a reasonably moral individual, I will not reproduce here. Yup, just call this here number and everything’ll be hunky-dory, we’ll walk you through it… just as soon as you give us a little information…

How stupid do you have to be, to fall for this? Never mind, don’t tell me.

Somebody just explain to me again why it’s so bad to teach our children the Ten Commandments.
