How Lies Damage the Gospel

At Them Before Us Katy Faust writes:

Barring actual abuse, when adults refuse to do the hard thing and instead choose to abandon the marriage, what they’re really saying is, “This cross is too heavy for me. Here kids, you take it instead.” If you want to talk about something that’s “incredibly damaging” to a child’s understanding of the God who says he is the bridegroom and the church is his bride, getting marriage wrong in your personal life or in church teaching is at the top of that list.

It’s a great article. Read the whole thing: What’s ‘Incredibly Damaging To The Gospel,’ Joshua Harris, Are Your Lies About It* Article

Kill Cops

Chicago sign near fallen officer memorial changed to read ‘Kill Cops’ - mayor silent.

Police do not yet know who is responsible.

The city has been struggling to keep law and order under the politics of the far left mayor.

It’s not working. As of last Sunday in Chicago, 2,199 people have been shot so far this year.

I hate to bring politics into something so despicable, but we all know, whoever did this isn’t voting for a Republican.

The Mission of Impossible Foods

Can A Burger Help Save the Planet? Impossible Foods CEO Pat Brown Says Yes

The mission of Impossible Foods is very simple. It’s to completely replace animals in the food system by 2035.–Pat Brown

I didn’t listen to the podcast. The above quote plastered across the top of the page was all I needed to see. It was all I needed to think: I plan on still being here in 2035, and I guarantee animals won’t be replaced in the food system by then. And I still won’t have tried an Impossible Burger. And I’m confident that I won’t be a last lone holdout.

MAGA: An Excuse For Leftist Hate

Leftists are getting more violent, and I believe that it will continue to rise as the right continues to thwart their “progress.” What started as calling supporters of President Trump slanderous names, has escalated into physical violence. And they’re simply being emboldened by the lack of Leftist leadership (Democrat politicians) condemning their actions. Let’s take a look at a couple of highlights from this past summer, when people simply wear a hat that says MAGA, Make America Great Again.

Vans employee fired for allegedly cursing at MAGA hat-wearing teen

A Vans shoe store employee was fired after he allegedly cursed at a 14-year-old customer because the teen was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat.

I love the way they use the word alleged in the news story when in the Twitter video the man admits to telling the kid to “F**k off.”

Law professor blasts student’s MAGA hat as ‘undeniable symbol of white supremacy’

Law student defends wearing MAGA hat to class after professor calls it a ‘symbol of white supremacy’

This report isn’t about violence, but does show the delusional claims people make regarding the hat. Jeffrey Omari, a visiting assistant professor at Gonzaga University School of Law, wrote in the American Bar Association’s ABA Journal about a student who was wearing a MAGA hat in class:

“his shiny red MAGA hat was like a siren spewing derogatory racial obscenities”

He also refers to the slogan as:

“an undeniable symbol of white supremacy and hatred toward certain nonwhite groups.”

Trump protest in Minneapolis erupts in pepper spray, MAGA hat fires

Hundreds of protesters outside President Trump’s rally in Minneapolis Thursday night set fire to Make America Great Again hats and other memorabilia in an effort to show their defiance to the current administration before police broke up the crowd, reports said.

There were reports that multiple protesters were arrested. One report indicated that protesters threw urine.

Protester spits on man wearing MAGA hat and here’s how he responds (Video)

Man in MAGA hat allegedly doused demonstrators with bear spray at Santa Monica Pier

Video from the scene posted on social media and YouTube showed Dempsey walking up to a man who was lying on the ground and spraying him directly in the face at close range, KTLA reported.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t include stories of people in MAGA hats committing acts of violence, but they seem to be rare. In this case, the article talks about Dempsey spraying a man lying on the ground with Pepper Spray, which is a really stupid thing to do, but what the story doesn’t mention is that there’s a lot of pushing and shoving prior to Dempsey’s attack. The video doesn’t make it clear as to who started the pushing and shoving, but my money would be on the “peaceful protesters.”

Dempsey’s actions are still inexcusable.

Here’s the video:

What to make of this?

If anyone is guilty of a phobia (irrational fear), it’s the Left with their reaction to MAGA hats.

To be certain, however, in academic settings “making America great again” suggests a return to the days when women and people of color were denied access to these very institutions [1].

No. It doesn’t. And to believe that makes you a fool.

Homes for All Legislation

Ilhan Omar promises the Squad will eliminate homelessness with Homes for All legislation

While eliminating homelessness is a wonderful idea, I don’t think it will ever happen. It’s more complicated than simply throwing money at it. So what I hear is: We’re going to spend more money, and enlarge the bureaucracy, enabling more corruption and waste.

Ilhan Omar replied that when she first came to America she was shocked to see homeless people. “It is a moral stain on our country that we have half-a-million or more people facing homelessness,” Omar said. She added, “In a few weeks, we are going to introduce our Homes For All legislation, which will, hopefully, guarantee a home for everyone by investing federal dollars in the creation of millions of homes.”

The Hidden Evil in Transgenderism

Recently the big news has been the deaths associated with vaping. But recently there has been another study released by the FDA discussing deaths associated with a drug called Lupron:

The figure rises when factoring in the total number of adverse reactions logged by the FDA since 1984. In total, there have been 40,764 adverse reactions, 25,513 of those were considered “serious,” among those were 6,370 deaths.

Interestingly enough, there hasn’t been a word from the Main Stream Media. Why is that?

Lupron is being prescribed off-label for use in children who have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria despite the lack of formal FDA approval for that purpose.

So, this is the drug that is being prescribed to children to block puberty when they want to transition from one sex to another. Since transgenderism is all over the news these days, you’d think the media would jump all over this, but they’re not. And they wonder why they’re called fake news.

Children and their families were being told that puberty-suppressing drugs used to transition youth were “fully reversible,” when in fact the drugs’ long-term effects remain unknown, she said, noting that an “unspoken rule” existed within the clinic — that clinicians were never to inform families that their children were not transgender.

And who are the victims here? Children. It’s bad enough when adults claim victim-hood for delusional charges, but we’re actually making victims out of children, and it appears to be intentional. Parents are supposed to be protecting their children, not subjecting them to perverted medical experiments, especially when the dangers of these popular drugs are being hidden. Other than politics, what possible reason could there be to keep something this potentially devastating–deadly–from the public discussion? And they say evil doesn’t exist.

Calif. legislature approves measure criticizing God for not embracing LGBT identities

Showing their misunderstanding and contempt for the Christian Church, and the Biblical teachings of God, California Democrats approved a non-binding resolution criticizing:

pastors, counselors, and other religious ministers helping those who are struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion. The resolution calls religious views about sexual ethics that do not affirm LGBT identities “stigmatizing beliefs” that contribute to depression and suicide.

What they don’t understand is that we are supposed to conform to God’s teachings; God is not supposed to conform to ours. Seriously. Whether they believe in God or not, do they not understand the concept of God? He makes the rules! But it’s not the first time, and it won’t be the last time that Democrats push to conform God to their world view.

This also seems a little hypocritical. While I certainly believe that God should influence the making of our laws, and he influences my decision making in voting, most Democrats would complain that that’s a violation of the “separation of church and state” which doesn’t appear in the Constitution. Apparently, they have no problem violating the unwritten rule in the other direction. But isn’t that just like a Leftist: rules apply to thee, not for me.

Pearl Jam And Ad Blocking

I love live music. I love it loud. This is a phenomenal show, but between each song there’s a 5 second advertisment. To me, it’s the perfect ad in support of ad blockers.
