Mississippi Church Burned Down for Resisting Lockdown

A police state needs more than police to impose its will. It needs thugs who operate outside the law to advance authorities’ objectives. A case in point is the Red Guards, student hooligans who beat people to death for minor ideological infractions during China’s Cultural Revolution. Speaking of China, here’s a more recent example from the era of the ChiCom coronavirus:

A church in Mississippi was destroyed by a suspected arson fire, about a month after its pastor filed a lawsuit challenging the city of Holly Springs on gathering restrictions amid the coronavirus outbreak.

First Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs, Mississippi, burned down Wednesday morning, news outlets reported. When investigators from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office got to the scene, they found graffiti in the church parking lot that read: “Bet you stay home now you hypokrites.”

The Karen mentality is getting scary.

Churches have been a prime target since Kung Flu hysteria took hold, as we have seen elsewhere in Mississippi.

Freedom to worship, like the freedom to peaceably assemble, is explicitly guaranteed in the First Amendment. The Constitution is under direct assault.

War on Christmas Gets Physical

I hope all Moonbattery readers got through Christmas unscathed, because the War on Christmas is becoming “kinetic,” as the politicians euphemize. From Cincinnati:

Henrietta Bush is facing an assault charge. It all began when someone wished her a “Merry Christmas” in Avondale Wednesday.

Wednesday was of course Christmas Day.

Police say Bush responded by repeatedly punching that person in the face.

Ms Bush doesn’t look very full of Christmas spirit:

Maybe the ideology that crowded Christmas out of her heart offers its own rewards. Doesn’t look like it though.

How A Charlie Brown Christmas Got on the Air

The 1965 special A Charlie Brown Christmas is a cherished holiday tradition that moonbats find intolerable (see here, here, and here). Given that the highlight is Linus explaining what Christmas is about by quoting the Bible, how did it ever get on television in the first place? The answer is: not without a fight.

As NewsBusters notes,

Explaining the true meaning of Christmas in a network television special broadcast to millions was a controversial move, even 54 years ago.

Sponsor Coca-Cola must have been less woke back then; it had no problem with including the Gospel of Luke. In contrast, CBS suits did not like it one bit. Peanuts creator Charles Schulz was told, “You can’t read from the Bible on network television.” But Schulz held firm. After watching the finished product, Executive Producer Lee Mendelson concluded, “We’ve ruined Charlie Brown.”

The rest is history. The show was a hit and remains one to this day.

People aren’t as shallow and moonbatty as entertainment executives like to think.

Wishing Amanda Marcotte a Merry Christmas

Like the Grinch and Ebenezer Scrooge before their epiphanies, some moonbats fail to grasp the Christmas spirit. Salon’s Amanda Marcotte literally interprets the greeting “Merry Christmas” to mean “F*** you.”

Marcotte says Christmas was never was of “great importance” to her. She denounces conservative Christians as “not people motivated by sincere faith, but people who see ‘Christian’ primarily as an identity marker that accompanies being white.” If Christianity is racist, it stands to reason that Christmas is too.

NewsBusters quotes Marcotte:

“Stirred by years of Fox News lying to viewers… conservatives have increasingly embraced the phrase ‘Merry Christmas’ to mean, basically, ‘F**k you’ to anyone that they’ve deemed less than legitimate Americans.”

“Less than legitimate Americans” apparently include not only non-Caucasians, but white moonbats like Marcotte, who weeps that she was victimized after equating “Merry Christmas” with “F*** you.”

“The principal harassment strategy was to track me down on social media, even on my Instagram feed, and flood it with ‘Merry Christmas’ messages — from white male strangers — to taunt me for my personal grief.”

Maybe this proves her point that “Merry Christmas” can mean “F*** you.” Maybe “Merry Christmas” means “F*** you” only if you say it to Amanda Marcotte. Or maybe the Christmas spirit is real, inspiring people to find it in their hearts to sincerely wish even a venomous lizard like Amanda a Merry Christmas.

Who knows? It might help her heart to grow three sizes like the Grinch’s.

Dhimmi Christmas: Carols De-Christified

The choice between Christmas and obsequious dhimmitude is a no-brainer for the PC moonbats running British schools. Consequently, Christmas will be phased out, beginning with the word “Lord” in the carol “Away in a Manger,” which children at a primary school have been told not to sing:

The move has left Christian parents appalled, after the head teacher ruled that children should sing ‘baby boy Jesus’ rather than ‘little Lord Jesus’.

Using the word “Lord” implies that Jesus is divine. Kids are not allowed to say that, because Muslims disagree.

That isn’t the only Christmas carol to undergo de-Christification at the Whitehall Primary School in Chingford:

The words ‘Jesus the saviour’ in the carol Love Shone Down have been replaced with ‘Jesus the baby’, while the words ‘new King born today’ in the carol Come And Join The Celebration have been replaced with ‘a baby born today’.

Whitehall head teacher Zakia Khatun announced the mandatory alterations. Nice British name, Zakia Khatun; you would think she would have more respect for tradition.

At least they have not replaced entire carols with recitations from the Koran — yet.

Why an Altar Painting Depicting Sexual Perversion Was Moved

A tasteless painting depicting sexual perverts has been removed from above the altar at the St Pauli church in Malmö, Sweden. Has the fear of God penetrated even the Church of Sweden? Not at all. The painting was moved for fear it would be interpreted as associating sinful behavior with sin.

Via Breitbart:

While many have criticised the LGBT painting in the church, according to pastor Per Svensson, the painting will be moved to another area not because of conservative backlash but because of its portrayal of transgender individuals, SVT reports.

Pastor Svensson said that the gay couples in the painting were not a problem for the church at all, but the possible association of transgender people with the snake of the Garden of Eden, a symbol of temptation and evil, was not something he could stand for.

It is nice to know that even Swedish pastors have principles. Too bad they are utterly depraved.

Despite the moonbattery corroding it from within, St Pauli is a beautiful church. Let’s hope it has a good lightning rod.

German Bishops Pronounce Sin Normal and Unchangeable

Christians believe that you should love the sinner but hate the sin. Liberals posing as Christians believe you should love the sinner and endorse the sin. Increasingly, liberals posing as Christians control churches, which they are destroying from within. An example from Germany:

The German Catholic bishops’ conference has issued a statement declaring homosexuality to be just as “normal” as heterosexuality while adding that adultery can no longer be considered a “serious sin.”

Both the homosexual and heterosexual orientation “belong to the normal forms of a sexual predisposition that cannot and should not be changed by any specific socialization,” the Dec. 5 communiqué stated.

Homosexual acts are repeatedly excoriated throughout the Bible in the strongest terms. But if adultery is okay now, why not depravity?

No way can this stance be reconciled with the Christian religion. Progressives are past reconciliation now. This is about extirpation — wiping out Christianity in all but name and replacing it with sheer moonbattery.

Next will come the communiqué on pedophilia that some priests have been waiting for.

Taxpayer Money to Convert 100-Year-Old Church into Mosque

Nothing could be more emblematic of the relationship between European governments, the European people, and the Muslim colonists who are in the process of displacing them and erasing their civilization than Norway spending nearly €100,000 of taxpayer money to convert a 100-year-old church into a mosque.

Via Voice of Europe:

The money will go to the Islamic Cultural Center – an organization that has several Islamic schools in their mosques in Drammen, Oslo, and Mjøndalen where children can stay overnight, Aftenposten reports.

These mosques are in effect beachheads for the ongoing invasion and conquest of Europe. This time no Charles Martel of John III Sobieski has emerged to prevent the Muslims from winning.

The outrage was approved by Kjell Ingolf Ropstad of the “centrist” (supposedly socially conservative) Christian Democratic Party, who is Minister of Children, Family, and Church Affairs.

This isn’t the first time Ropstad has awarded large sums of money to the Islamic group. In the past, the Islamic Cultural Center, which has a total of 3,775 registered members, has received nearly 70,000 euros to convert a former Baptist church in Stavanger to a mosque.

Other grants of €20,000 and €30,000 have been awarded for the Islamification of Norwegian churches. Soon they will need to spend some money to replace every flag in the country, since the Norwegian flag is based on the Christian Nordic cross.

Hagia Sophia was the Vatican of the East for nearly 1,000 years, and arguably the world capital of Christianity during that time. It was converted to a mosque and is currently just a museum. At least the Byzantines put up a hell of a fight for centuries before they succumbed to overwhelming force.

Commie Christmas Carols

Even where moonbats have achieved total dominance, some remnant of American culture remains. For example, in Ann Arbor, home of University of Michigan, people still sing Christmas carols, despite Christmas being an insensitive thought crime that must never be mentioned. Of course, the lyrics are a little different:

“Feeling the Bern,” a group of Ann Arborites went caroling downtown Friday night, Dec. 6, singing praises of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

They used the tunes of Christmas classics; however,

Lyrics were rewritten by Lauren Sargent to voice support for Sanders’ progressive agenda.

“O Christmas Tree” became “O Medicare,” with a call to “make it universal,” and “We Three Kings” became “Green New Deal,” a song about reducing carbon emissions to “rescue our earth.”

The objective is to replace one god with another. Moonbats literally worship coercive Big Government.

Sunday Morning Blasphemy

Watch in horror as CAIR-supporting Somali Islamist Ilhan Omar prays to Allah in a Christian church, as a priest sits below her, idly catching up on his reading:

What are the odds of an American Christian praying to Jesus in a mosque in the Middle East without getting disemboweled?

When tolerance is a one-way street, it is not tolerance. It is surrender and submission. As it happens, the word “Islam” means “submission” or “surrender.”

War on Christmas Resumes

It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, and the War on Christmas has already resumed. Even where overtly religious elements of this religious holiday have already been removed, the purges continue.

Via CBS Boston:

A Durham, New Hampshire celebration scheduled for the beginning of holidays is undergoing some changes this year in an effort to remove religious overtones.

Formerly called the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony, the newly named Frost Fest will include the absence of a formal tree lighting. Santa will be at the event but he will not arrive in a town firetruck as he has in the past.

That would be too religious, because of the part in the Bible where Santa arrives at the manger aboard a firetruck to bestow gifts of gold, frankincense, myrrh, and an Xbox upon the Baby Jesus.

Town Councilor Sally Tobias says the changes came about after some controversy last holiday season. “There was another private citizen that came forward and said that he had always had a problem with the Christmas tree, as he called it,” Tobias said.

Maybe if they had just made clear that it is a generic meaningless winter tree, not a Christmas tree, they could have kept it.

Wreaths on lamp posts also had to go. Too Christian.

As usual, moonbat grinches brandished the word “inclusion” while excluding normal Americans from their own culture.

Satanic Art Displayed at Christian School

On the surface, moonbattery often seems moronic and nauseating but well-meaning. Scratch that surface, and something darker comes to light. This darkness was on open display at Grantleigh, a private Christian school near Richards Bay, South Africa.

Apostolic Faith Mission pastor Andrew Anderson posted video of an appalling art exhibit at the school.

Via News 24:

A matric pupil’s interpretation of Italian renaissance painter and inventor Leonard da Vinci’s Last Supper had him almost in tears, with Jesus depicted as a clown as he breaks bread for the last time before his crucifixion, with dollar signs painted on the lintel behind him.

The disciples are people and animals, with hats, sunglasses and some with horns.

Torn strips of the Bible feature in another work.

Panning over images that included a work inspired by Michelangelo’s Renaissance work The Creation of Adam painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, Anderson was overcome with emotion at the image of a clown leaning out of the cloud for the iconic finger touch imagery.

It used to be artists created. In this age, they tear down, desecrate, and destroy.

The school’s ethos is “To God be the glory.” This is not glorious:

The demonic art exhibit has been taken down due to public outcry, proving that pushback still works. However, if the disease has not been cured, symptoms soon reemerge.

Beto Confirms Homosexual Agenda Is Attack on Christianity

Why are progressives obsessed with promoting homosexuality and in particular the blasphemous concept of homosexual marriage? The answer is in the question — specifically, in the word “blasphemous.” The homosexual agenda is an attack on Christianity. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke — the same desperate Dem who let slip that hell yes, they want to confiscate semiautomatic rifles — confirms it:

Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke says he’d strip churches of tax-exempt status if they don’t support same-sex marriage.

There is more to this than Democrats’ insatiable greed on behalf of Big Government. Progressives don’t want churches to pay taxes as much as they want them to give in. A church that supports what the Bible explicitly and repeatedly condemns in the strongest terms is no longer Christian. It has been hollowed out; the insides can then be filled with moonbattery. After a while, people will figure out that churches are houses of lies and stop coming. A major barrier will have been removed from the road to utopia.

Leftists like Robert Francis have been inflicting this same hollowing out on the concept of rights. Note how he spins his attack on our constitutionally protect right to practice the Christian religion as actually upholding rights:

“There can be no reward, no benefit, no tax break for anyone or any institution, any organization in America, that denies the full human rights and the full civil rights of every single one of us,” he said. “So as president, we’re going to make that a priority, and we are going to stop those who are infringing upon the human rights of our fellow Americans.”

When the concept of rights has been completely hollowed out and filled with toxic nonsense, deviants will have a “right” to force you to betray your faith by endorsing their perverted sexual practices.
