Woke Freak: Jesus Was Nonbinary

Among the many unpleasant aspects of moonbats is how condescendingly certain they are of their own abject lunacy. Watch in horrified disgust as a human monstrosity proves to his own smug satisfaction that Jesus was nonbinary and that the entire human race is too:

Where Genesis says “male and female He created them,” it actually means “male, female, and all along the imaginary but politically fashionable spectrum in between He created them.” Thousands of years of misinterpretation have been corrected at last.

Harvard Selects Atheist as Top Chaplain

If a man can be named woman of the year, if anti-American moonbats can be named President of the USA, then an atheist can be named top chaplain at a school that was founded by Christians — provided that the school has been subverted by moonbats.

Via DNYUZ:

The Puritan colonists who settled in New England in the 1630s had a nagging concern about the churches they were building: How would they ensure that the clergymen would be literate? Their answer was Harvard University, a school that was established to educate the ministry and adopted the motto “Truth for Christ and the Church.” It was named after a pastor, John Harvard, and it would be more than 70 years before the school had a president who was not a clergyman.

Nearly four centuries later, Harvard’s organization of chaplains has elected as its next president an atheist named Greg Epstein…

Before ever showing up for work, Epstein had already accomplished his job — namely, to serve as a middle finger directed at God. His election was unanimous, confirming that when Ivy Leaguers crow about diversity, they are not referring to diversity of opinion.

Epstein is a good fit for the liberal elitists at Harvard:

[A] Harvard Crimson survey of the class of 2019 found that those students were two times more likely to identify as atheist or agnostic than 18-year-olds in the general population.

Our ruling class only pretends to be agnostic or atheist. Actually, it has its own religion: moonbattery. It has its own god: power over the rest of us.

Jason Whitlock on Why Liberal Agenda Is Satanic

Last night on Tucker Carlson’s show, Jason Whitlock observed that much of the liberal agenda is not merely wrong but satanic. I agreed wholeheartedly, but wished he had time to make his case. That wish has come true:

My problem with the left is its aspiration to redefine every form of sin as a natural desire we should not tame. “Do what thou wilt” is the unstated overarching theme of progressive politics. “Do what thou wilt” is the primary tenet of the Thelema occult practice established by English writer Aleister Crowley, a satanist.

Whitlock’s basic argument is that sin is satanic, and liberalism promotes sin. Abortion compounds sin with greater sin. Transsexual ideology is sinful because it rejects God’s reality. The embrace of the obese as the latest cultural Marxist identity group is sinful because it glorifies gluttony, one of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Recently, Democrats have become more explicitly Marxist, and thereby more conspicuously satanic:

I mention Marx and his political ideology because the founders of Black Lives Matter are self-described trained Marxists. BLM’s stated goal of disrupting Western civilization’s nuclear family structure is an affront to God.

As for the media that brainwashed the gullible into embracing BLM maniacs,

Its reliance on false narratives makes it the perfect companion for wickedness. Satan opposes truth. He uses deception to foment division and chaos.

As does the media. For example:

Police kill roughly 1,100 people per year [~1 in 300,000]. About 450 of those victims are white and approximately 250 of them are black. The number of those victims who are unarmed and pose no threat is miniscule.

As Heather Mac Donald notes, “unarmed” blacks (including criminals who go for a cop’s gun, etc) killed by the police make up at most 0.2% of black homicide victims.

But the mainstream media has spent the past decade pretending that every traffic stop is a life-or-death experience for black people. Based on media coverage, you’d think black people run in panic every time they see a police officer. It’s all a lie.

The Bible bids us to reject fear and revere truth. The media makes opposite demands.

The wickedness of leftists harms the blacks they exploit:

Only the left denies that the breakdown of family structure is at the heart of the problems confronting black America. Only the left believes stopping police misconduct with black resisting criminal suspects should be a higher priority than restoring the black family.

Another case that liberalism is not merely wrong but satanic might stress the leftist obsession with demonizing achievement and imposing mediocrity in the name of the truly evil concept of “equity.” Satan hates humanity, and does not want to see us achieve our potential.

Still more blatantly satanic is the left’s systematic corruption of innocence, specifically the sexualization of children. This is pushed to hellish extremes of malevolent depravity when kids are brainwashed with LGBT ideology and then subjected to grotesque chemical and/or surgical desecration. Satan also hates innocence.

The Ten Commandments: What You Should Know

As documented here on a daily basis, leftists hate Western Civilization and are systematically destroying it through moral degeneracy and cultural Marxism. They ferociously oppose displays of the Ten Commandments. That is because without the Ten Commandments there would be no Western Civilization as we know it. There would also be no morality, but only moral relativism:

The Ten Commandments are more than a set of instructions to create a happy society. As important as the commandments themselves is who gave them.

As the direct word of God, they establish a higher authority than government. This limits government power. Without limited government, liberty is not possible. Without liberty, Western Civilization cannot flourish.

They also establish moral absolutes — another reason leftists oppose them. Without moral absolutes, evil has free reign, as atheistic communist regimes have illustrated with their staggering body counts.

Open Thread

Today courts wrongly interpret separation of church and state to mean that religion has no place in the public arena, or that morality derived from religion should not be permitted to shape our laws. Somehow freedom for religious expression has become freedom from religious expression. Secularists want to empty the public square of religion and religious-based morality so they can monopolize the shared space of society with their own views. In the process they have made religious believers into second-class citizens. - Dinesh D'Souza

Moonbats Lay Siege to Church for Stating the Obvious

Moonbats have pulled the Overton window so far into the fever swamps of insanity that the New England Baptist Church in Medford, Massachusetts is under siege for posting this supposedly controversial message on its sign:

MALE AND FEMALE
CREATED HE THEM.
GEN 5:2
GENDER IDENTITY SOLVED.

For thousands of years, no one outside of a lunatic asylum would have had a problem with that. Now, our whole country is an asylum, and the lunatics are running it.

Via CBS Boston:

[The sign’s] message isn’t sitting well with the non-binary community who don’t identify as male or female. They showed up by the dozens in protest coming face-to-face with churchgoers.

Jonathan Dallas, who says he is “nonbinary,” denounces the sign for not being “inclusive.” Bullying normal, healthy people for expressing normal, healthy views, insisting that everyone conform to a grotesque ideology that would have evoked horror and revulsion at any point in human history — now that’s inclusive.

“LGBTQA” militants growled that the sign made them feel “unsafe.” Given the leftist tendency to project their own sins on those they hope to destroy, this can be taken as a direct threat. I hope the church has arson insurance.

“It’s almost hypocritical that they can present their world view and we can’t,” said [Pastor Joseph] Hawkins.

Almost? A world run by liberals reflects the purest essence of hypocrisy.

To no one’s surprise, the town’s mayor sides with the mob against sanity, decency, Christianity, and all other problematic remnants of the civilization progressives are in the process of eradicating.

“It’s time for all to know that love is love,” said Mayor Breanna Lungo-Koehn. “Everybody should be able to love who or how they want.”

Note that these bumper sticker slogans can easily be repurposed when the liberal agenda moves on to pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia, and other abominations so depraved that we cannot even imagine them.

With Moonbattery, the Medium Is the Message

To quote Marshall McLuhan,

In a culture like ours, long accustomed to splitting and dividing all things as a means of control, it is sometimes a bit of a shock to be reminded that, in operational and practical fact, the medium is the message.

This has never been truer than in our current era of moonbattery run amok. Leftists’ stated message generally consists of outrageous lies. The real message is expressed not through the medium, but by the medium.

A classic example is burning police stations, looting businesses, and destroying statues of our national heroes in the name Black Lives Matter. Slogans referencing conspicuously nonexistent black oppression are not the real message. The real message is that they hate American civilization and intend to destroy it.

Another example is the 44-foot banner reading “GOD BLESS ABORTIONS” with which leftists desecrated the Christ of the Ozarks statue in Arkansas.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports:

The 65-foot statue is located in Eureka Springs on Magnetic Mountain. It’s one of five known giant statues of Christ in the world, according to the Encyclopedia of Arkansas. The statue can been seen from 20 miles away.

The blasphemous banner was hung by the aptly named leftist sect Indecline, which crows on Instagram,

We just think abortion is a goddamn miracle worth celebrating. It saves lives, but those lives are usually female.

Killing babies saves lies. This is especially good because the imaginary lives saved are “usually female,” and according to liberal ideology, a female life is worth more than a male life, just as a black life is worth more than a white life.

They should have claimed that the imaginary lives saved are usually black. True, blacks are vastly more likely to be killed by abortion. But so are girls.

The patently false, sanctimonious rhetoric is not the real message. The medium is. Here, the medium is blasphemy.

At bottom, this isn’t about promoting degeneracy or even about killing babies. It is about spitting at God by throwing the gift of life back in His face.

Antifa Anti-Christian Violence at Wi Spa

The Wi Spa in Los Angeles, where a courageous woman stood up against liberal social engineers’ bizarre campaign to insert male perverts into women’s locker rooms, is currently ground zero in the Culture War. Countermoonbats gathered there yesterday to protest in favor of decency and sanity. Liberal shock troops — i.e., Antifa — swarmed in to assault them:

A group dressed in all-black, including one person with an Antifascist Action flag, chased away a man wearing a shirt that reads: “Obey Jesus.” One person in the mob told the man, “You gotta go bro, for your own f***ing safety, you gotta go bro.”

While demonstrating, the man was sprayed in the face by one of the black bloc agitators. The mob attempted to steal a sign held by a group of street preachers, which ignited a brawl in the street. The man in the blue shirt was hit in the head with a skateboard as he was attacked by multiple black bloc members simultaneously. The street preacher had blood pouring from his head as he attempted to flee from his attackers. Another street preacher was stomped after being shoved to the ground.

Presenting the current state of religious liberty:

The Wi Spa is located in LA’s Koreatown. People there remember the Rodney King race riots of 1992, when Korean store owners took to the roofs with rifles to protect their property from the leftist mobs that authorities allowed to run riot. Fortunately, some of these Rooftop Koreans are still around:

IRS: Christianity Is Republican

Our leftist rulers have begun to drop the pretense that you can be both a Democrat and a Christian. Obama infamously politicized and weaponized the IRS. Under his still more unscrupulous successor Biden, the IRS has denied tax-exempt status to a religious group on the grounds that teaching Biblical values helps Republicans:

Christians Engaged provides nonpartisan religious and civic education, focusing on encouraging and educating Christians to be civically engaged as a part of their religious practice. Christians Engaged applied for tax exempt status in late 2019. On May 18, 2021, IRS Exempt Organizations Director Stephen A. Martin denied the application, contending that Christians Engaged “engage[s] in prohibited political campaign intervention” and “operate[s] for a substantial non-exempt private purpose and for the private interests of the [Republican] party.”

Gasps Christians Engaged President Bunni Pounds,

“We just want to encourage more people to vote and participate in the political process. How can anyone be against that?”

Democrats want people voting. But not just any people. Illegal aliens would have been voting in much larger numbers had they been able to ram through the “For the People Act.” The facilitation of voter fraud would have allowed inner-city cheaters to cast multiple ballots with greater ease. In contrast, American citizens who are Christians are not the type Democrats want casting ballots.

First Liberty Institute has issued an appeal on behalf of Christians Engaged.

In its administrative appeal letter, First Liberty says, “By finding that Christians Engaged does not meet the operational test, Director Martin errs in three ways: 1) he invents a nonexistent requirement that exempt organizations be neutral on public policy issues; 2) he incorrectly concludes that Christians Engaged primarily serves private, nonexempt purposes rather than public, exempt purposes because he thinks its beliefs overlap with the Republican Party’s policy positions; and 3) he violates the First Amendment’s Free Speech, and Free Exercise, and Establishment clauses by engaging in both viewpoint discrimination and religious discrimination.”

From Martin’s rejection letter:

“Specifically, you educate Christians on what the Bible says in areas where they can be instrumental including the areas of sanctity of life, the definition of marriage, biblical justice, freedom of speech, defense, and borders and immigration, U.S. and Israel relations. The Bible teachings are typically affiliated with the [Republican Party] and candidates. This disqualifies you from exemption under IRC Section 501(c)(3).”

The Bible correlates with Republican positions; therefore, Christianity is political. By the same token, the IRS had better not grant tax-exempt status to the Satanic Temple, which correlates with Democrat positions.

You can see why Biden wants to shovel an extra $80,000,000,000.00 of our money at the IRS to make it more powerful. As Obama found, it is useful for punishing enemies.

You can also see why the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is moving forward with plans to deny Biden Communion. A recent poll by CatholicVote found that 74% of churchgoing Catholics agree that Biden should not be allowed to take Communion due to his gravely immoral policies. Participation by willful malefactors like Biden and Pelosi reduces the Eucharist to a blasphemous farce.

Courageous Pastor Artur Pawlowski Arrested

As they consolidate power, leftists will punish dissidents more forcefully. Artur Pawlowski, a Calgary pastor who immigrated from formerly totalitarian Poland, lifted our spirits when he threw the Covid police out of his church, sending them off with their tails between their legs. Surprisingly, you can still watch it on YouTube:

Pawlowski has the courage and the moral standing to rally wider resistance. This would be unacceptable to the authorities, so they obtained a secret warrant allowing them to use “any force necessary” to disrupt his church services.

Now he and his brother Dawid have been arrested:

Both have been charged with organizing an illegal in-person gathering, in addition to “requesting, inciting or inviting others” to join them, said the Calgary Police Service in a statement.

In other words, they were arrested for holding a church service. Similar incidents must have occurred in Poland under communist rule in Pawlowski’s youth.

From here resisting will only become more difficult. But whatever the price of resisting, the price of not resisting is guaranteed to be higher.

Rebellion Succeeds Within Episcopal Church

As the Long March Through the Institutions corrupts Christian denominations by subverting them with moonbattery, local churches have a duty to rebel. In Fort Worth, a revolt within the Episcopal Church has found success.

The US Supreme Court has let stand a Texas Supreme Court ruling giving Episcopal dissidents $100 million worth of disputed property.

The case, All Saints’ Episcopal Church v. Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth, has particular application for mainline Protestant denominations that assert corporate ownership of church property — such as the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the United Methodist Church.

As a result of the ruling,

[M]embers of five North Texas Episcopal churches had to vacate their buildings and turn over the keys to a group of dissidents that several years earlier had broken with the national denomination over the ordination of women priests and the inclusion of LGBTQ Christians.

“Inclusion of LGBTQ Christians” is liberalese for approving of behavior explicitly prohibited in the strongest terms in the Bible.

The hierarchy of the Episcopal Church embraces the liberal social agenda. Locally, there has been resistance. The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth voted to leave the denomination, but its independence was not recognized by the church at the national level, setting off years of litigation.

Unlike Baptists and others in the free church tradition where local congregations own and manage their own properties, the Episcopal Church claims title to all its affiliated church properties. The same is generally true for Methodists and Presbyterians, which also has led to similar disputes in recent years.

The Presbyterian Church (USA) and United Methodist Church both filed friend-of-the-court briefs with the Supremes, hoping to suppress the Episcopal rebellion.

Corporate CEOs reject sound business practice to placate the liberal mob. Similarly, church leadership has betrayed the faith in favor of the Cult of Wokeness across denominations.

The hope among progressives is that Christianity can be hollowed out, leaving the churches intact but replacing the Gospel with social justice propaganda. This would provide them with another means of controlling the population.

Congregations don’t have to submit to this willingly. The threat of secession may keep leadership from succumbing to political pressure from leftists.

Pastor Imprisoned for Preaching From Bible

It’s official; Britain is no longer a free country. In no free country is a Christian pastor hauled off to spend a night in jail for preaching from the Bible.

Via Daily Mail:

John Sherwood, 71, was led away in handcuffs, questioned in a police station and held overnight after being accused of making homophobic comments outside Uxbridge Station in west London.

The same British who heroically held off the Nazi war machine have succumbed to this level of tyranny without firing a shot. That is how much damage moonbattery can inflict on a nation’s character in only two generations.

After someone ratted him out, the police arrested Pastor Sherwood under the Public Order Act, then released him the next day without charge.

No need to sentence pastors to prison if throwing a scare into them might work. If they continue preaching from the Bible rather than from the Guardian, escalation will be required.

Mr Sherwood said officers grilled him over his attitude to gay people. He was even asked what he would do if his children were gay. The married father-of-two said: ‘The question was irrelevant to the allegation against me. I said I would seek to bring them to Christ, but of course I would love them no matter what, because they’re my children.’

Not good enough. We are now required to approve of homosexuality. Mentioning what the Bible has to say about it is off limits. This is why it is only a matter of time until the Bible is banned.

Pastor Sherwood preaches at an evangelical church in north London, but was street preaching in Uxbridge when the authorities shut him down, injuring his wrist and elbow as they yanked him off his perch on a mini-stepladder.

As for his specific thought crime,

A statement posted to a Christian Facebook his supporters read: ‘Whilst he was preaching, he expounded the final verses of Genesis 1, declaring that God’s purpose in creating mankind was to set human beings in families, headed by a father and a mother, not by two fathers, or by two mothers.

‘The distinction within mankind of just two genders, male and female, made in the image of God, constitutes the essence of God’s created order.’

That’s what progressives mean by “hate speech.”

As noted by Pastor Peter Simpson, who was preaching with Pastor Sherwood before the arrest,

‘If there was a [gay] Pride parade in Uxbridge, the police would support it even if Christians were offended.’

That’s because gays are oppressed and Christians are oppressors, according to the liberal narrative.

Continued Pastor Simpson,

‘You don’t have to be an evangelical Christian to be shocked by this. Anyone who cares about liberty should be concerned about what happened in Uxbridge.’

That does not include anyone still willing to identify with the increasingly totalitarian left.
