We all know freedom of speech doesn’t give you the right to yell “Fire!” in a crowded theater; but how did it ever wind up meaning that you have to say certain things, or else? Because some fat-head judge said so!
When did “tolerance” become the official religion of the United States, towering triumphantly over every other consideration?
It started with us wanting to be “nice” and humane and gentle. Now you get hauled into court if you don’t want to make a cake celebrating some freak’s “transition.” We wanted to be kind. Well, that good need didn’t go unpunished.
And we’ve got these companies like Ben & Jerry’s riding the crest of whatever disgusting new aberration comes along, shilling like crazy for it.
Be very afraid of any pinheads who claim the authority to “design society.” That means they want to design you. ‘Cause they know what’s best for everyone, and even your thoughts are not your own. They’d suck ’em out of your brain with a straw and spit ’em on the ground, if only they could.
And they’ll still be here when the virus goes away.
I’m sure we’ve mentioned once or twice that two competing and mutually opposed moral codes can’t co-exist in one society. Harvard University is about to find that out.
“Gay” Etc. students and staff are opposing Harvard’s plan to create a “religious liberty clinic” whose function we suppose, would be to protect everyone’s lawfully guaranteed, by the First Amendment to the Constitution, religious liberties (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=14549). No way, says Far Left Crazy–not unless the clinic takes a pledge not to take any cases that might “impinge on the [undefined] rights of LBGTQ+ people.”
Those “rights” are not defined because organized sodomy demands supremacy–and veto power over the free exercise of religion. Wherever there’s a conflict, “gays” are supposed to win. They’ve grown accustomed to it.
So yeah, sure, you can have religious liberty–as long as you don’t say, write, believe, or do anything that the “gays” don’t like.
Doesn’t sound like liberty to me.
The overriding purpose of America’s colleges and universities, these days, is to crank out more Far Left Crazy zealots. Anything else they might accomplish is an afterthought.
The sooner most of them go out of business, the better–before they put America out of business.
Ms. Rasenen is being “investigated” for two criminal incidents. First, for a leaflet she wrote 16 years ago. Second, for criticizing her denomination for holding a “gay event” at the church. She also posted some Bible verses online–Romans 1: 24-27. She is being defended by the Alliance Defending Freedom, headquartered here in the USA–where defending freedom is still allowed.
Does anybody really wonder why God should be mad at Western civilization–which has made an idol of sodomy, and worships every known species of perversion? And makes it a criminal offense to adhere to the word of God? Have we suddenly been catapulted back in time into the middle of the Book of Acts?
Well, if we have, God grant us the strength to say to today’s tyrants, as Peter and John said to those of their own time, “We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).
But for Christians to be “investigated” and persecuted in Western countries that once were known as Christendom is a dark stain that won’t be easily washed away.
I’m a story-teller, and I consume other people’s stories. It’s fuel. I need it like a car needs gasoline. So, in addition to reading stories, I watch stories online–movies and TV shows.
Lately it’s become almost impossible to find a show or a miniseries that does not subject the viewer to one or more commercials for homosexuality. Some recent examples:
In Brokenwood, a New Zealand cop show, the best and wisest man in town is, of course, openly “gay” and proud of it. And police officers counsel a lesbian not to break up with her girlfriend, because “love” is love, blah-blah. So no more Brokenwood here.
Murdoch Mysteries (Canadian) recently aired its 200th episode. That’s quite a successful series. The hero, Murdoch, is a devout Catholic and a man of high moral character. But this season they have decided to turn one of the regular characters into a homosexual, for no reason I can see.
In some Irish thing we watched, the loving mother says to her son, “Why don’t you find a nice young man and settle down?” If anyone has ever said this in real life, shame on our species.
And last night, in Father Brown, of all places, we were treated to a budding lesbian romance.
There are more, but enough is enough.
We are losing our culture. Oh! And we’ll lose our republic and our freedom, too, if the schemers and corrupt spies and bent cops who tried to undo the 2016 election and take out our president are not punished so severely, and publicly, that no one ever tries to do it again.
Now is not the time to give in. It’s never time to give in. Here are some things we can do instead of surrendering.
Cling to the cross of Jesus Christ, and to the Bible. It’s God’s word, and it will not return to Him defeated.
Pray several times a day, and keep a store of hymns handy.
Stick together and encourage, comfort, and support each other. Here on this blog, we have a Christian fellowship. Many more of them need to be created. Let’s use this dazzling communications technology to build a truly universal Church.
Never go along to get along. More mischief has been done by that than by any other means that I can think of.
Speak the truth, stand up for it. Too many people change their core beliefs just because they’re told to. We must not.
The enemy’s might does seem overwhelming; but even the weakness of God is stronger than they. The foolishness of God is wiser than men. (1 Corinthians 1: 25) It is required of us to keep the faith.
No one ever faced a more daunting, a more hopeless challenge than Winston Churchill did in 1940. He refused to give in. He refused to be daunted. And when the smoke cleared in 1945, Churchill was still standing and Hitler was dead.
Cal State refused a request by the pro-life students for $500 to pay a speaker’s travel expenses–while at the same time forking over some $300,000 to assorted “gay” student groups. Because all students have to pay the fees which are the source of these funds, the judge ruled that the looniversity had discriminated against the pro-life students while favoring the Far Left student groups–which was tantamount, said the judge, to “compelled speech.”
Which is to say, they can’t force conservatives to pay for left-wing speakers and left-wing events while withholding the same funds from conservative speakers. All student groups ought to get their share, regardless of their politics–because the fees are paid by all.
Gee. All it took for that to happen was a thumping great lawsuit, three years of legal wrangling, and a judge’s ruling. Is that what conservative students have to do, every time they want a speaker?
Let’s not kid ourselves. The universities’ primary concern is to promote Far Left ideology at the expense of everybody else, and to turn out a steady stream of brainwashed young leftids. Fundamentally transforming America, don’t you know–into the People’s Republic of Northern Venezuela.
It’s long past time to cut them off from public money.
Stop me if you’ve seen this pattern before: 1) “School” (they’re still calling them schools) plugs in some outrageous innovation that 2) gets the public hopping mad. 3) In the face of widespread protests, the school removes the innovation. But when 4) all the heat dies down, 5) they plug it back in.
This is what has happened in a school district in Birmingham, UK. Last year they plugged in a “gay”-promoting “curriculum” and parents, mostly Muslims, pulled 600 kids out of the schools and kept them out until the district got rid of its “OK to be gay” curriculum. Victory for the good guys, right?
