I am so tired of these weasel Progressive’s, and equally tired of people who try to appease them
You can’t take Jesus out of “Silent Night,” you pathetic secular public school demons.
Regressive leftists at work.
Gateway Pundit has it, “Long Island School Removes Words From Silent Night – Too Offensive (Video).” (Via Memeorandum.)
Funny how the same folks screeching about tolerance possess not the first shred of it themselves.
Ever wonder what would have happened if we had stood up to Atheist bullies instead of appeasing their intolerance?
Via Fox News:
The Baby Jesus has been kicked off Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina, according to an organization who relishes any opportunity to eradicate Christianity from the U.S. military.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation praised officials at Shaw Air Force Base for removing a Nativity scene located near Memorial Lake on Friday. The traditional Nativity included plastic statues of Mary, Joseph, the Baby Jesus and an assortment of animals.
Apparently, an undisclosed number of Airmen were so emotionally troubled by the sight of a manger scene that they immediately notified the MRFF.
I can only imagine the psychological damage they must have suffered as a result of glancing at the plastic statues. I hope no one needed hospitalization, God forbid.
The MRFF’s Paul Loebe wrote in a statement that since the display was not erected near a chapel, it was illegal. [...]
Loebe swiftly alerted MRFF President Mikey Weinstein who then called his BFF’s at the Pentagon. That led to an immediate investigation and more than two hours later, the Nativity had been removed.
No wonder DC is so screwed up, they keep electing freak shows as mayor
D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gary issues proclamation honoring October as America’s Islamic Heritage Month

America’s “rich Islamic history”? Good Freaking Greief!
I have said before that the issue of Gay marriage should be a state by state decision, and that those state decisions ought to be respected by both sides. And, in theory, such a state of affairs would work out well. Ah, but you see, the driving forces behind the Gay marriage push, do not want to live and let live. They will never be satisfied with true equality, their definition of equality being far removed from the actual definition, they will use this issue to force others to bow to them. Donald Douglas declares that the war on religion, yes ALL religion, not just Christianity, is under way, and links to this piece at All the Right Snark
As Ben Shapiro wrote today at Breitbart, this ruling by the Supreme Court has opened the door to the IRS revoking tax-exempt status to any church that would refuse to permit two homosexuals to hold their “wedding” within its walls.
Don’t think that will happen?
As it is, homosexual couples are suing bakeries, florists and other businesses for refusing to provide them with the trappings of their upcoming nuptials.
You don’t think homosexual couples won’t pursue lawsuits against churches for refusing to “marry” them?
We’re living in Obama’s America — where in the name of “fairness” it’s open season on anyone you don’t like.
And if you think that the “Take that bitches” crowd will be respectful of those who disagree on religious grounds with homosexuals “marrying,” then, think again.
The United States Supreme Court didn’t nullify an unconstitutional law yesterday. They nullified the will of the people. The nullified the Separation of Powers. They nullified the religious freedom in this country.
Five unelected individuals in a nation of over three hundred million just paved the way for state-approved HATRED against anyone who recognizes marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
Five unelected individuals believe that opposition to homosexual “marriage” is motivated by frothing-at-the-mouth hatred. Therefore, supporters of homosexual “marriage” can go to town!!
That lays it out pretty well. As I said, I would be fine with live and let live, but the Gay marriage activists are not OK with that. They despise religion, again ALL religion, and will not stop until everyone is forced to support gay marriage. This is not about equality, or rights. What of the rights of the florist, caterer, or photographer to say no to doing a Gay wedding? And yes, eventually, churches and other houses of worship will be targeted if they say no to having a gay wedding in their sanctuary.
So, it is with regret that I say to those Gays and Lesbians who really JUST want equality, and who do not wish to force anything on any business or church, that they have allowed haters and totalitarians to take over their cause. It is sad because, I have nothing against Gay people, frankly, you could scarcely find anyone who cares less about what people do in their bedrooms than me. But, I cannot abide activists destroying the religious freedoms, and the rights of businesses. If you want equality then great, but if you want to steamroll freedom of thought, then I do not say no, I say HELL NO!
Stacy McCain is looking at an ugly thing, a thing he calls “A Psychosis Called ‘Equality’” A psychosis the manifests itself in deplorable outbursts of uncontrollable rage, and intolerance towards anyone that dares hold a differing view. Stacey has some of the Tweets from someone just like that
The fanatical conceptions of ideologues inspire madness. Last night, a certain devotee of the “Free Kate” crusade went on a Twitter spree, a few samples of which I share for your amusement:
Oh, look: An advocate of “equality” https://twitter.com/JessicaNaomiNet/status/346498179887403008 … hurling a familiar epithet at @michellemalkin — you stay classy, progressives!
Oh, look: The advocate of “equality” https://twitter.com/JessicaNaomiNet/status/346469548117086208 … says she’s being spammed by “ChristoFascists”!
Oh, look: The advocate of “equality” https://twitter.com/JessicaNaomiNet/status/346445946105765889 … says she’s a victim of “heterosupremacist tyrannical theocrats”!
Tolerance: A Progressive Value: https://twitter.com/JessicaNaomiNet/status/346498050535075840 … Take that, you heterosupremacist gay basher Jesus freaks! #tcot
According to #FreeKate, if you’re against toilet-stall sex with 14-year-olds https://twitter.com/JessicaNaomiNet/status/346470550417317890 … you’re a hater!
And imagine the chagrin of “Jessica Naomi’s” LGBT friends when they discover that, in fact, “Jessica Naomi” is a 48-year-old straight guy who’s just really into watching teenage lesbians on video.
Socialism is being promoted and Christianity is being demonized in the public school systems of some of the most conservative states in America. For example, students in Texas public schools have been taught to design a socialist flag for a new nation, that those that participated in the Boston Tea Party were “terrorists”, and that Christianity is a cult. If this kind of thing is happening in Texas, can you imagine what is happening in the rest of the nation? Sadly, education is a big part of the “progressive” agenda. Progressives are convinced that if they can “shape the minds” of the next generation through education that it will only be a matter of time before they achieve all of the major changes that they are seeking to implement in our society. And you know what? It’s working. If you look at any public opinion poll that is broken down by age, you will find that the youngest age brackets are the most likely to agree with progressive viewpoints. Millions of parents are sending their kids to public schools without having any idea that they are being taught that patriotism is divisive, that capitalism is evil and that Christianity is a fictitious cult. Instead of learning traditional American values, those kids are being taught that they should identify themselves as “global citizens”, that socialism is about “sharing” and that all of the religions of the world need to come together as one. If you are a parent, just pick up the textbooks that your kids have been assigned and actually read them. Once you know what to look for, you will see it everywhere.
When I was a little boy, my public school teachers were still teaching the the founding fathers that were involved in the Boston Tea Party were great patriots that were trying to throw off the vile oppression of the British.
But now many public schools are openly referring to them as “terrorists”. For example, down in Texas a public school curriculum known as CSCOPE is being widely used. The following is from a CSCOPE lesson plan labeled “World History Unit 12 Lesson 07″…
A local militia, believed to be a terrorist organization, attacked the property of private citizens today at our nation’s busiest port. Although no one was injured in the attack, a large quantity of merchandise, considered to be valuable to its owners and loathsome to the perpetrators, was destroyed. The terrorists, dressed in disguise and apparently intoxicated, were able to escape into the night with the help of local citizens who harbor these fugitives and conceal their identities from the authorities. It is believed that the terrorist attack was a response to the policies enacted by the occupying country’s government. Even stronger policies are anticipated by the local citizens.
Of course thanks to a great outcry this particular lesson plan is now considered “outdated” and is not supposed to be used any longer, but this is just one example of the kind of things that are being taught.
Another CSCOPE lesson plan actually has children design a flag for a new socialist nation. The following comes directly from a CSCOPE lesson plan for sixth graders…
Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag. Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?
In the 1950s, children in the United States would have been taught that socialism and communism are evil. Now, lesson plans such as this one force our children to imagine themselves as socialists and communists.
Do you want your children to spend their time in school designing flags for socialist and communist regimes?
Or would you rather have them spend their time reading and writing?
Another very disturbing aspect of CSCOPE is that it teaches children that the god of Islam and the God of the Bible are the exact same thing.
The following is an excerpt from a CSCOPE lesson plan about religion. The statements where Allah has been made equivalent to the God of the Bible have been put in bold…
WH.1 History. The student understands traditional historical points of reference in world history. The student is expected to:
WH.1B Identify major causes and describe the major effects of the following events from 500 BC to AD 600: the development of the classical civilizations of Greece, Rome, Persia, India (Maurya and Gupta), China (Zhou, Qin, and Han), and the development of major world religions.
Allah – monotheistic deity; also recognized as the God of Abraham (Yahweh)
WH.23 Culture. The student understands the history and relevance of major religious and philosophical traditions. The student is expected to:
WH.23A Describe the historical origins, central ideas, and spread of major religious and philosophical traditions, including Buddhism, Christianity,Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, and the development of monotheism.
Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) – one supreme God; also referenced as Yahweh or Allah
Of course anyone that knows anything about Islam and Christianity knows that is a flat out lie. The god of Islam and the God of the Bible are most definitely not the same thing.
But those that are seeking to promote a “one world religion” want our children to believe that all religions are “different paths to God” and that we need to bring all of the religions of the world together for the sake of “global harmony”.
Progressives are often not just satisfied to list Christianity as “just another religion” though. In fact, they seem to love to demonize it however they can. For example, the CSCOPE curriculum actually refers to Christianity as a “cult”. The following is from CSCOPE World History Unit 3 Lesson 02…
In the space of a few hundred years, a small, often brutally persecuted cult rose to become the dominant religion of the West. How did it happen?
Contemporary pagan and Christian sources preserve other accusations leveled against the Christians. These included charges of incest and cannibalism, probably resulting from garbled accounts of the rites which Christians celebrated in necessary secrecy, being the agape (the ‘love-feast’) and the Eucharist (partaking of the body and blood of Christ).
So why haven’t we heard more about this by now?
Well, teachers down in Texas were actually required to “sign a contract that would prevent them from revealing what was in the CSCOPE lessons or face civil and criminal penalties.”
They desperately do not want you to know what they are teaching to your children.
Eventually hearings about this curriculum were held down in Texas. One algebra teacher actually broke down in tears as he testified. He chose to quit his job because he felt like he was “aiding and abetting a crime“. Other Texas teachers expressed similar sentiments.
But you know what?
The curriculum is still being used.
Is it any wonder why our young people are so stupid? Instead of being taught basic reading, writing and math skills, they spend most of their time absorbing socialist indoctrination.
So when they get out of school most of them do not have what it takes to make it in the real world. In fact, up in New York City most high school graduates do not even have the basic skills that are necessary to enter community college…
It’s an education bombshell.
Nearly 80 percent of New York City high school graduates need to relearn basic skills before they can enter the City University’s community college system.
The number of kids behind the 8-ball is the highest in years
Our public schools are a complete and total mess and they are getting worse by the day.
For much more on the horrifying decline of our public schools, please see the following articles…
So what do you think about the state of our public schools?
Please feel free to post a comment with your opinion below…
Case in point? Defenders of the Constitution and other bitter clingers are now the “enemy”.
To make it easy, it seems that if you revere the Founders, the Constitution, your Christian faith, your right to keep and dear arms, or if you think you are entitled to keep most of what you make and that the government has a duty to be fiscally responsible, then you are a danger to ObamAmerica
Pathetic! Who are they trying to appease?
Unbelievable. They are erasing their own heritage. And for what? Do they think they will somehow grow as an organization? Or are the leaders just caving in to political correctness? Frankly, the members should quit, and reform in a new group, or boot the leadership ASAP.
.UPDATE!! The DAR is saying this report is untrue, here is the link
NSDAR is disappointed to learn that false and incorrect information has recently been circulated regarding the 2011 edition of the DAR Ritual and Missal and the use of the name Jesus Christ in prayers and other ceremonial events of the National Society. The purpose of this message is to clarify NSDAR’s position on the matter for anyone who has not previously viewed the blogs written by President General Merry Ann T. Wright.
First, the question was posed by a national media group that if the motto of DAR is God, Home and Country, then “…why is DAR taking out references to God…” in its printed material. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, as currently written, the 113 page Ritual and Missal contains over 300 references to “Almighty God,” “Great God our King” (America hymn), “Our Heavenly Father,” “Heavenly Father,” “God of Hosts,” “God,” “Lord,” “Eternal God,” “Your Holy Spirit,” “Lord your God,” “Gracious Lord,” “Almighty and Everlasting God,” “Gracious Father,” and similar variations.
Second, the allegation has been leveled that Chaplains and others have been told not to pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Again, this is an absolute falsehood. Each Chaplain and other officers are strongly encouraged to create their own prayers into which they may insert the name of Jesus Christ as deemed appropriate for the occasion and the audience. This is what the President General wrote in her blog of April 10, 2012 when questions about the change to the Ritual and Missal first arose:
A member left the link in the comments section, so i wanted to get this updated, thanks!
Once again, the far Left exposes just how discriminatory, and ignorant they are
The student government at the University of California-Berkeley (CAL) passed a resolution last month that would ban Salvation Army bell ringers and their iconic red kettles from campus this Christmas because of the Christian organization’s alleged bias against homosexuality.
In other words, because the Salvation Army dares to be a Christian charity, that helps anyone who needs it by the way, thy must be prevented from raising funds to help the needy. Odd, as much as the Left throws around the charge of extremism against anyone they disagree with, it is the Left that is truly extreme.
The resolution, cleared on November 14, accuses the charity of openly discriminating against gay individuals.
“Salvation Army church services, including charity services, are available only to people ‘who accept and abide by the Salvation Army’s doctrine and discipline,’ which excludes homosexuality,” reads the bill, SB 176.
This charge is patently false. it would seem that ignorance, gross ignorance in this case is part of the Left’s bigotry.
“Allowing the Salvation Army to collect donations on campus is a form of financial assistance that empowers the organization to spend the money it raises here in order to discriminate and advocate discrimination against queer people,” it adds.
In a statement to Campus Reform, the Salvation Army adamantly denied these charges, saying the allegations are based solely on “internet rumors.”
“The notion that we require those we help to ‘accept and abide by the Salvation Army’s doctrine and discipline which excludes homosexuality’ to receive assistance is totally false,” wrote Kathy Lovin, a spokeswoman for the Salvation Army.
She added that “the only requirement for service from The Salvation Army is demonstrated need and our ability to meet it.”
So, in fact, the Salvation Army helps anyone regardless of who they do the Horizontal Bop with. Of course the willingness to believe the charges the student government of Cal make are part of the Left’s problem. Leftism, and Liberalism are ideologies of pessimism. Largely, Liberals and especially leftists are very pessimistic people. They seem to enjoy hearing that climate change will kill us all, Try telling one of them that the ice caps in the South pole are growing sometime. Not only will they not believe you, they will get angry at you. Of course, the Left also is addicted, or so it would seem, to being, or at least feeling like a victim. So, their pessimistic view of life is fed by internet rumors that anyone ought to see as bogus. It also explains why they are so easily fed the propaganda that the Democratic Party dishes out.
Oh, that’s right, I forgot, tolerance does not apply to them does it? Of course not, tolerance, as defined by the Left means that certain groups must stamp out all vestiges of other groups, so as to not be offended!
Brussels replaced its popular Christmas tree exhibit this year at the city center due to concerns that it may offend the local Muslim population.
The Right Perspective reported:
Government officials in Brussels, Belgium banned Wednesday a popular Christmas tree exhibit out of concerns that the local Muslim population found it “offensive.”
An “electronic winter tree,” will take the place of the traditional Christmas Tree and Nativity scene at the city center of Grand Place, reports Brussels News.
The electronic sculpture will stand 25 meters (82 feet) tall and consists of a set of television screens, reports Brussels Expat. “During the daytime you can climb to the top of the tree where you will be able to enjoy a panoramic view of the city,” the website explains. “As soon as it becomes dark the tree turns into a spectacle of light and sound. Every ten minutes an amazing show will unfold.”
City councilwoman Bianca Debaets believes a “misplaced argument” over religious sensitivities has moved Brussels to put up the light sculpture. She points to the fact that it display not be referred to “Christmas” in any way to make her point.
“I suspect that the reference to the Christian religion was the decisive factor” in replacing the tree, she told reporters. “For a lot of people who are not Christians, the tree there is offensive to them.”
And what about all the Christians who are sincerely offended over NOT having the tree? Oh, of course, those “intolerant” Christians will not go apeshit and riot like those “tolerant Muslims.
In watching the unfolding misunderstanding in the Middle East, I now fully understand the wise words initially issued that in part read,
“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.”
My question is why won’t Christians in the United States show the restraint now being displayed by believers in the Middle East?
While I am personally God-fearing, I don’t belong to an organized religion in the United States that can range in size from the mom-and-pop to the small corporation. What does bother me are the thin skins of Christians worldwide who take to the streets in murderous hordes whenever anyone expressing free speech makes any kind of statement or gesture that offends their religious feelings.
We should all be inspired by the restraint shown by those in other religions whose tenants are under constant attack and ridicule and respond with kindness and prayer.
We should also condemn the acts of Christians, especially in the United States for their stiffening attempts to create a theocracy, where all are forced to become Christian and any attempt to flee that theocracy can be met with imprisonment or even violent death.
How dare we, for example, treat our women as second-class citizens under the name of Christianity. When are we, as a so-called civilized nation, going to end of oppression in the name of the Bible? In many countries around the world, women are free to pursue happiness in any way they choose, unlike here as we’re constantly reminded by our more enlightened progressives, where we continue a “war on women”.
Be sure to read the rest folks, it speaks volumes about how the Left and its sick obsession with “equality” never allows it to see the facts right in front of their faces.
Come to us via Weasel Zippers. As you read this, ask yourself this. How stupid does a person have to be to decide that the nursery rhyme Baa, Baa, Black Sheep is RAAAAACIST
(Daily Mail) — A school has been accused of political correctness after
changing the words of a traditional children’s nursery rhyme.
At their Easter concert, pupils at Park Hill School swapped the word ‘black’ in Baa Baa Black Sheep for ‘little’ as they sang.
It confused parents and friends watching the performance at the fee-paying Kingston Upon Thames school.
Kingston Councillor Andrea Craig, whose son sang in the show, tweeted on the night: ‘At my son’s Easter concert I saw a song called Baa Baa Little Sheep which I assumed was new.
‘Not so – not allowed black. Really?’
The school insisted the song had been changed as a way of teaching children phonics and to fit in with the Easter theme, rather than a skewed approach to political correctness.
You can read the excuses at the link, but, frankly, the excuse given set off my BS Meter! Maybe because the Left is constantly pulling stunts like this in their crusade for “sensitivity”
People in Great Britain are now forced to fight for a very basic right. The right to wear a cross
Imagine how awful it will be for any Christians who fail to escape the rotting remnants of Britain after Muslims have achieved the majority if it’s this bad already:
Britain’s Conservative [sic]-led government plans to argue in a European Court of Human Rights case that employers are entitled to ban the visible wearing of crosses at work because displaying the symbol is not a recognized “requirement” of the Christian faith. …
At the center of the applicants’ case is Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which states, “Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief, in worship, teaching, practice and observance.”
Moonbattery also has the story of the origin of this fight
The issue has been brought to a head in part by Nadia Eweida:
Eweida, a Coptic Christian and British Airways staffer at Heathrow Airport, was told in 2006 to remove or cover up a small cross she wears around her neck. She refused and was sent home on unpaid leave. Eweida noted that colleagues of other religions, including Muslims and Sikhs, were allowed to wear religious items such as hijabs, turbans and religious bracelets.
So, how long? How long until this fight comes to America? Folks it is a fight that Christians, or anyone that respects basic human rights does not want. But, we have little choice, we must fight this. And even if you are a non-believer, or of a different faith, do not think this fight foes not hold dire implications for you.
Matt offers up the perfect illustration of the folly of radical Atheists
During a Halloween Parade, Atheists dressed as parodies of religious figures. One was a zombie Pope. Another, who is the sad subject of this story, dressed as zombie Mohammed. That prompted a quick and violent reaction from a local resident, who is a Muslim. For the rest of the story, check this out, via Weasel Zippers…
Via Opposing Views:
The Pennsylvania State Director of American Atheists, Inc., Mr. Ernest Perce V., was assaulted by a Muslim while participating in a Halloween parade. Along with a Zombie Pope, Ernest was costumed as Zombie Muhammad. The assault was caught on video, the Muslim man admitted to his crime and charges were filed in what should have been an open-and-shut case. That’s not what happened, though.
The defendant is an immigrant and claims he did not know his actions were illegal, or that it was legal in this country to represent Muhammad in any form. To add insult to injury, he also testified that his 9 year old son was present, and the man said he felt he needed to show his young son that he was willing to fight for his Prophet.
The case went to trial, and as circumstances would dictate, Judge Mark Martin is also a Muslim. What transpired next was surreal. The Judge not only ruled in favor of the defendant, but called Mr. Perce a name and told him that if he were in a Muslim country, he’d be put to death. Judge Martin’s comments included,
“Having had the benefit of having spent over 2 and a half years in predominantly Muslim countries I think I know a little bit about the faith of Islam. In fact I have a copy of the Koran here and I challenge you sir to show me where it says in the Koran that Mohammad arose and walked among the dead. I think you misinterpreted things. Before you start mocking someone else’s religion you may want to find out a little bit more about it it makes you look like a dufus and Mr. (Defendant) is correct. In many Arabic speaking countries something like this is definitely against the law there. In their society in fact it can be punishable by death and it frequently is in their society.”
Aha, now, Matt does an absolutely tremendous job of explaining why this story is so, to use his words, instructive!
First off, if the attacker was a Christian, and the judge was also Christian, would he have gotten off free? I don’t think so, because Christians believe in law and order, and generally eschew violence. And, come to think of it, it might have been at least a blurb on the national news, as it makes Chrsitians look bad. However, since the attacker is a Christian, there is going to be a lot of silence on this story.
Secondly, Atheists, Feminazis, homosexuals, Muslims, and a host of other groups attack Christianity on a regular basis. They proudly and loudly do so, and are rather persistent at it. However, those same groups seem to shy away from attacking Muslims. Of course, the common answer is simple. A Christian, when attacked, is instructed by scripture to turn the other cheek, and pray for their enemies. Muslims, on the other hand, are instructed to kill everyone who opposes them. And, the judge is correct, Mr. Perce would likely be killed for his prank in a Muslim country. The answer then? Christians are a soft target, they aren’t likely to fight back. Islam is a rather violent religion, and their Koran demands the death of infidels.
Mr. Perce was assaulted by one Muslim. What if there had been twenty? What if there had been one hundred? And, what if there were a Muslim judge to declare them all innocent for his eventual murder? This is something that our Atheist friends might want to consider as more Muslims enter this country, and clearly don’t “get” the religious freedom, or the freedom of speech, that our Constitution protects.
In the end, I cannot take the atheists, feminazis, gays, and other critics of Christianity, at all seriously. They claim that Christianity is oppressive, yet they mostly ignore that Muslims kill apostates or infidels, commit honor killings of female family members, and hang homosexuals. But, we don’t see them being protested. We don’t see demonstrations outside of Mosques. Nothing. If they were serious about their issues, they would take on the people that would kill them, rather than the ones that would pray for them. They are cowards and hypocrites, and are not worthy of the tiniest bit of credibility.
Just when I start to think that I can overlook his over the top Social Conservatism. Just when I start to think that maybe he has realized that government needs to stay OUT of American’s sex lives, he goes THERE!
I don’t care if it’s in the Bible, I don’t care if you can point to all sorts of studies showing how it leads to bad economic outcomes or even health problems. People will not vote for Rick Santorum once they see things like this:
(Warning DKos link)
One of the things I will talk about that no president has talked about before is I think the dangers of contraception in this country, the whole sexual libertine idea … Many in the Christian faith have said, “Well, that’s okay … contraception’s okay.”
It’s not okay because it’s a license to do things in the sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be. They’re supposed to be within marriage, for purposes that are, yes, conjugal … but also procreative. That’s the perfect way that a sexual union should happen. We take any part of that out, we diminish the act. And if you can take one part out that’s not for purposes of procreation, that’s not one of the reasons, then you diminish this very special bond between men and women, so why can’t you take other parts of that out? And all of a sudden, it becomes deconstructed to the point where it’s simply pleasure. And that’s certainly a part of it—and it’s an important part of it, don’t get me wrong—but there’s a lot of things we do for pleasure, and this is special, and it needs to be seen as special.
Again, I know most presidents don’t talk about those things, and maybe people don’t want us to talk about those things, but I think it’s important that you are who you are. I’m not running for preacher. I’m not running for pastor, but these are important public policy issues.
Drew seems to agree with me, or maybe I agree with him, anyway, great minds agree that Santorum will lose to Obama if he keeps that up.
Also, one more point that folks like Santorum overlook. What if someone IS married, but in their forties, and simply feels like they are too old to have kids? Should they NOT use contraception? Not have sex? Is THAT sex somehow, “diminished”? Good grief Santorum!
Dear Lord that is horrid My ears are bleeding
Eric Bolling of Fox gives the boot to an anti-Christian totalitarian. Video and background at Mediate
An age old axiom for polite discussion is that two topics one should always avoid at a dinner party are politics and religion. And this is the time of year where, especially of late, the end of the year Christmas cheer seems to come with a spirited discussion over religious iconography in the public square. In the following clip, Barker did not hedge in explaining why he found the nativity scene so offensive, saying it represented “an insult to human nature that we are all doomed and damned,” before being interrupted by a defensive, though polite Bolling, who tried to get the conversation back to the much less interesting discussion of how different local municipalities govern and free speech.
But Barker seemed eager to insult Christianity, saying again “what an insult that we are degraded to be praising the exact Jesus created a place of hell.” Bolling quickly interjected, reminding his guest that it was “his show” and that he would not abide having a guest denigrate the name of Jesus Christ on his show. Something about love thy enemy?
It is well past time that people stopped being polite or accommodating to Statists like Dan Barker. They are no better than the Klan, or any other hate group, and are intent on forcing their will on everyone else.
