Here’s what he said that got their noozie knickers in a twist:
“God gave us grace on November 8, 2016, to change the course we were on. God had been taken out of our schools and lives, a nation had turned its back on God. I encourage you to use this time at home to get back in the Word. Read our Bibles and spend time with our families.”
Oohhhh! Pretty vexatious, isn’t it? How dare he say such things? How dare he even suggest them? Betcha anything he’s taking away someone’s childhood. Does he not know that any mention of God or prayer or the Bible or anything religious is, like, unconstitutional? Where’s the ACLU? Somebody’s gotta sue this guy! Nobody should be allowed to say a thing like that!
And if we ever get a Democrat back in the White House, no one will.
Not that we actually care what this superannuated travesty of a newspaper says, but I think we need to understand how leftids think, the better to defeat them.
So some Far Left Crazy at the Times has written, “The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science Is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response” (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/27/opinion/coronavirus-trump-evangelicals.html). Well, gee, almost everything’s closed down, they’re working day and night to find a cure, and they just ponied up $2 trillion to tide us over–does that seem “crippled” to you? Does that really look like the Trump administration is just lah-dee-dahing it?
Yeahbut, yeahbut! The “science denialism”–what?–“of his [Trump’s] ultraconservative religious allies” is holding us back from the triumphs we’d surely have if only there weren’t any Christians in America. Or something. It’s very hard to make out what leftids are trying to say sometimes. But let’s try. Near as I can figure:
Being anti-abortion makes you “anti-science.”
Not believing in Man-Made Climbit Change makes you “anti-science.”
Not buying into Evolution makes you “anti-science.”
Failing to confess the existence of several dozen “genders” makes you “anti-science.”
Not being a hypnotized zombie leftid makes you “anti-science.”
Not taking the New York Times seriously makes you “anti-science.”
And if you didn’t vote for Hillary, you are way “anti-science.” Shame on you.
The White House squirted out of their hands in 2016, they can’t face life without power over other people, and liberals are just plain irrational and nasty in the first place, and puffed up almost to bursting with self-importance.
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.
When I was in elementary school, I couldn’t learn how to add a column of figures: just couldn’t do it. Until my father sat down with me and, in 20 minutes or so, taught me how to do it–succeeding where the qualified experts had failed.
That was a long time ago. Today there are many solid alternatives to public education, all of them better than a public school.
The only purpose of an education system owned and run by leftists is to turn out more leftists.
I did a lot of teaching in the public schools. I saw a lot of things that made me mad. But Gunn saw even more. This is a deeply penetrating documentary. You can watch it on the Chalcedon website, the whole thing:
Why, why, why do Christians continue to send their children to public schools owned by persons who hate Christianity and want to wipe it out? Who fill children’s heads with “transgender,” “gay,” “America is racist!” and all the rest of that slop?
And you can forget about being “salt and light” in this arena. You’ll be fired so fast, it’ll make your head spin.
I can’t help thinking we have made God work very hard to keep our country afloat, to preserve us in spite of our multitude of sins. It’s a miracle of Providence that we’re still here.
But I do think the Lord would be pleased if we took up some of the work ourselves.
The bogus “impeachment” has gone down in flames, the Democrats’ Iowa caucus has gone up in smoke, and Nancy Pelosi has thrown a spoiled-child tantrum on international TV. Democrats don’t have a candidate or an issue that anyone but a monkey would ever vote for–and yet with all this in our favor, there’s still doom and gloom among us: a sense of defeat, a belief that Far Left Crazy has already won all the marbles and it only remains for them to scoop them up.
I give thinks to God for honoring me by giving me a place in the line, to stand or to fall for Christ’s Kingdom. That is the kingdom that shall stand forever; and if we fall, the Lord shall raise us up.
What? Surrender to transgender? To Hillary Clinton, Adam Schiff, John Kerry? Surrender to a whining mob of pipsqueaks? Surrender to mere numbskulls–who shout “Hail Satan!” without even knowing what they’re saying?
Sometimes the bad guys win. God has allowed that much scope for free will. There are times when the enemy looks invincible.
But it doesn’t matter. What matters is, Never give up. Never give in. Not even if they put a gun to your head. There is nothing they can do that God cannot undo. Never, never, never give up.
There is a quote by Tolkien which seems apt:
“Will shall be sterner, heart the bolder, spirit the greater, as our strength lessens.”
In 2016 Whatcott and some of his friends–he has resisted much pressure to identify them–infiltrated a “pride” parade, putting on silly costumes and calling themselves “the Gay Zombies.” During the parade, they handed out some 3,000 flyers describing–accurately–assorted “gay lifestyle” health consequences, along with Bible verses.
First the LGBT groups hit him with a lawsuit for–you’re not going to believe this–$104 million. Their purpose was to shake down “wealthy right-wing donors” and scare them off supporting Whatcott’s activities. The suit died when it became clear that there were no wealthy right-wing donors.
So the next step was a criminal charge. “Law enforcement,” Herod’s men, issued a nationwide warrant for Whatcott’s arrest, a measure usually employed in connection with major crimes like murder and racketeering. Whatcott gave himself up, was subjected to an extraordinarily rigorous bail hearing, and finally released–although he is not allowed to leave the country. (I would, but he is made of sterner stuff.) He has also retained the services of reputedly the top defense lawyer in Canada, who doesn’t agree with Whatcott’s message but thinks free speech is worth fighting for.
What do you think would happen if there were a Christian parade and a “gay” activist infiltrated it to hand out fliers for, say, a Drag Queen Story Hour? If the story made it into the nooze, he’d be the toast of the networks. Democrat politicians would elbow each other out of the way for photo ops with him. He would certainly not be charged with any kind of crime, or sued, or face a prison sentence.
Are Christian parades still legal? They took away my home town’s hundred-year-old annual Christmas parade. Maybe there are no Christian parades for “gays” to infiltrate.
Bill Whatcott faces prison for calling a sin a sin. Hmm… Envy is a sin. What if he wrote and spoke against envy? Well, nothing at all would happen because the sin of envy has not metastasized into a tyrannical political bloc.
Bill Whatcott has shouldered the burden of defending the right to proclaim God’s word. It’s a very bad business that a defense should even be necessary.
Pray for him, make his sacrifice widely known; and be always prepared to stand for religious freedom here.
Helping someone who’s poor and needy is a Christian duty. Helping some jihad johnnies get a foothold in America is criminally suicidal.
The Baptist Press called the reports–most recently posted at Breitbart.com–“elaborate conspiracy theories [that} date back at least six years.”
I don’t want to believe that any church takes money from, and lends support to any agenda of, George Soros, an avowed enemy of Christian America.
I won’t go into the complexities of the rumors here. I’m not up to it. Suffice it to say that these matters need to be thoroughly investigated by real investigators, not puppets for one side or the other. In the meantime, I think we ought to take the Southern Baptists’ denial at face value and give them every benefit of the doubt–as we would hope to receive, were we falsely accused of any wrongdoing.
Because buddying up with Soros, no matter how you slice it, is wrongdoing.
P.S.–By the way, it wouldn’t surprise me to discover that Soros himself, and his henchmen, started these rumors just to hurt Christians. He’s perfectly capable of it.
Once you go down there, you can never come back up
Back in September some perky publicist pitched me a book “re-telling Bible stories without an angry God.” I didn’t think we needed anything like that. We’ve already gotten enough to incur a spiritual pollution. So I told them to get lost.
Would you believe it? He’s back! Back with another invitation to read and review this monstrosity. I mean, come on! “Gay lovers in the sanctuary cities of Sodom and Gomorrha”? Does this come with a barf bag, or do you have to provide your own?
Apparently my first refusal, months ago, struck the perky publicist as somehow ambiguous. So I guess I’ll have to try again.
No, no, no! Not if you put a gun to my head! I will not soil myself, I will not insult my own soul, by reading this toxic, heretical trash. And you’ve signed yourself up for a long, long stay at Club Hell, unless you repent now and tell the author you will not represent him anymore.
Personally, if it were up to me, I’d smite the pair of you with lightning and be done with it today: “So perish all who do the same!” You’re lucky the God you hate is much more merciful than I am.
