Quick Marks (September 4)

Quick thoughts on some of the past week’s news: Dave Grohl feels like an alien; Those who are supposed to protect us from violence don’t know how to protect us from violence (Antifa); and possibly the highlight, an Australian woman who grew up with two lesbian mothers explains how unhappy she was.

Dave Grohl on how Donald Trump inspired Foo Fighters’ new album – NME

Dave Grohl discusses how Donald Trump & subsequent ‘wave of conservatism’ shaped his lyrics on Foo Fighters’ new album ‘Concrete & Gold’

Grohl also added that being in the US during the “conservative wave” that came with the rise of Trump reminded of the ‘alienation’ he felt as a teenager.

“It’s weird,” said Grohl. “It really sparked a lot of my early, alienated, freakish punk rock feelings from when I was a teenager. I was one of those little freaks in his blue bedroom in the middle of a really conservative part Virginia feeling like I was just an alien. I started feeling that way again.”

I have news for you Dave. Everyone feels like an alien at times in their life. How do you think conservatives felt for eight years under Obama’s administration?

Come to think of it, as a Christian, we’re supposed to feel a little alien. Like we don’t belong.

FBI, Homeland Security warn of more ‘antifa’ attacks

Confidential documents call the anarchists that seek to counter white supremacists “domestic terrorists.”

“Everybody is wondering, ‘What are we gonna do? How are we gonna deal with this?’” said the senior state law enforcement official.

If your senior state law enforcement official is asking, how are we gonna deal with this, I think it’s time to get a new senior state law enforcement official.

It’s not that hard to figure out. Bring in more police. If the police can’t handle it, call in the National Guard. Oh, they did? Maybe they should be allowed to do their jobs.

I think the bigger problem is that Democrat politicians and the Main Stream Media are contributing to the problem by blaming the victims of the violence. But that’s what they do best: blame the victims. It doesn’t matter that the victims are hate groups. A lot of Christian groups are wrongly considered hate groups, so how long before Antifa starts showing up at Christian gatherings with their violence?

Violence is never acceptable.

Quick Marks (August 24)

Quick thoughts on some of today’s news: Southern Poverty Law Center gets hit with a lawsuit, A curvy blogger creates a #BeInYourSkin body positive calendar, the mathematical secrets of ancient tablet have been unlocked after almost a century, and a woman has been sentenced to 10 years for making false rape claims.

Southern Poverty Law Center Hit With Lawsuit

This is not new. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has been labeling Christian groups hate groups for some time now, and I’ve always felt that it’s a defamation of character. It’s a false accusation, and I’m happy that someone is finally standing up to them.

An evangelical ministry has filed a federal lawsuit against the influential Southern Poverty Law Center, saying that the group sought to defame it when it designated the religious institution as an “active hate group” because of its stance against homosexuality.

Curvy Blogger Creates Body Positive Calendar

I’m not saying that being overweight is healthy, or quite frankly, attractive, but some people do. And that’s okay, because that means there’s someone for everyone.

What I hate, though, is fat shaming. If someone’s happy, and comfortable,
in their skin, no matter the size, it’s their business. I’ve read some of the hurtful comments that people make towards people who are over-weight, and I think the case can be made, that the people making the comments are no better than a someone hurling racist, or sexist, insult.

Brianna McDonnell, a body-positive fashion blogger at the B Word,  created #BeInYourSkin 2018 editorial calendar that features 25 plus-size bloggers, influencers, and friends as part of a campaign to empower and inspire — an idea which she told Mic came “organically”. “I wanted to create images of plus-size women that were creative, different, sexy, artful, strong, empowering and editorial,” she said. “I wanted to create something for plus-size women, where they could see themselves in the images.

Mathematical Secrets of Ancient Tablet Unlocked After Nearly 100 Years

Further proof that our ancestors were not as stupid, or ignorant, as the enlightened among us would think.

Dating from 1,000 years before Pythagoras’s theorem, the Babylonian clay tablet is a trigonometric table more accurate than any today, say researchers

Woman Jailed For 10 years For Making False Rape Claims

This needs to happen more often. The false accuser should receive the sentence they would have imparted on the innocent victim.

Stop Using the Word Homophobe

Yes! Calling someone a HOMOPHOBE is OFFENSIVE!
Yes! Calling someone a HOMOPHOBE is OFFENSIVE!

Stop using the word homophobia. It’s offensive. It implies an irrational fear, which very few people have. Most people who oppose homosexuality have good reasons for doing so; there’s nothing irrational about it. Calling someone a homophobe in response to someone’s argument is like responding by calling them ass hole. That’s not a counter-argument; it’s name-calling. And did I mention offensive?

Yeah, I know there are a few people that are actually homophobic, but they’re few and far between, and to use it for every person that is anti-gay is foolish and inaccurate. Did I mention offensive?

When one person calls another person a homophobe, I feel like the targeted person would be correct to respond with dumb ass.

The Marriage Equality Myth

Gay Pride God

Always the marriage equality argument. This is, of course, a big fat lie.

Marriage equality has always existed. The law never said gay people can’t get married. It said men had to marry women, and it applied equally to ALL men regardless of sexual orientation. That’s equality.

But, but, gay men couldn’t marry whoever they wanted!

Neither could straight men! Straight men couldn’t marry their mother, sister, brother, male neighbor, dog… whatever. The same restrictions that applied to gay men, applied to straight men. That’s equality.

The laws said a man has to marry a woman. Is a gay man a man? Is he different from a straight man? I imagine most gay men consider themselves to be men. And if a gay man is a man, like any other man, the laws will apply equally to him. That’s equality.

Changing the law to allow men to marry men, does not change the equality aspect unless the law is rewritten to say: gay men can only marry gay men, and straight men can only marry straight women. Obviously, it will/does not. So, new laws, or allowances, or rights, under the law will remain equal. If men are allowed to marry men, it will apply equally to straight men. Because that’s equality.

Why would a straight man want to marry another man? The only reason I can think of are economics, but the point is, they would be legally, and equally, be able to do so.

The equality issue is a false argument. It’s a myth. It’s a distraction from the real issue, and the real issue is that they want to redefine marriage.

There’s No Such Thing As A Homosexual Human Being

Gay Pride God

He created them male and female, and he blessed them and called them "human." (Genesis 5:2 NLT)

Human beings come in two kinds: male and female. Human beings, reproduce, naturally, through sex. And it takes one of each kind. That is, it takes one male and one female to reproduce a human being. Even if you take the natural out of reproduction, you still require the sperm from one male, and the egg from one female. There is no other way, unless you count some sort of weird biological alchemy. This is a fact, and this fact alone, means that human beings are heterosexual. Every single one of them, er, us.

Human beings who have sex with other human beings of the same sex want to be treated different that other human beings, but in reality they’re not different. They’re heterosexuals like the rest of us. They may have homosexual sex, but they cannot reproduce except through heterosexual means. They must involve another human being, either through surrogate mothers or IVF. It is not something two human beings claiming to be homosexual can do.

I know. The claim is that sexuality has to be separated from sex, but in reality the two are inseparable. If you indulge your sexuality, you do it through sex. In other words, it’s indulged through an action that has been chosen; a sex act, that has nothing to do with making babies, even though that’s part of what sex is. Sex is not just the act of getting your rocks off. That way of thinking reduces it to an animal instinct, and we’re more than just animals. We can think about what we do. We can consider the results, although, nowadays, that seems to be out of fashion.

The bottom line is:

  • If you have male parts, you’re a male. You reproduce by interacting with a female, thus, you are heterosexual.
  • If you have female parts, you’re a female. You reproduce by interacting with a male, thus, you are heterosexual.

I don’t care if you’re attracted to members of the same sex. You’re still heterosexual. You’re a human being! Or are saying you’re something different? It doesn’t matter what you’re attracted too. It doesn’t matter what you’re turned on by. These do not change the fact that you’re a heterosexual. They may change your attraction, but that’s not physical, it’s mental.
