Apparently, Homophobia Has A Dual-Meaning

From Feministing:

Just because I’m not too surprised about this doesn’t mean it’s any less upsetting to hear.
It was reported yesterday that the Bush administration is rejecting consultative status of the United Nations to two LGBT organizations. In response, 39 organizations have written a letter to Condoleeza Rice, requesting an explanation for the decision.

Last year, the International Lesbian and Gay Association and the Danish gay rights group Landsforeningen for Bøsser og Lesbiske (LBL) applied for consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council. This status allows NGOs worldwide can participate in discussions among member states at the UN. There are already 3,000 groups who have this status. While organizations applying for consultative status are normally allowed to state their cases to the NGO committee, Bush and the other opposing nations moved to dismiss the groups’ application without a hearing. Among the opposing was Cameroon, China, Cuba, Iran, Pakistan, the Russian Federation, Senegal, Sudan, and Zimbabwe. Matt Forman, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, had this to say:
It is an absolute outrage that the United States has chosen to align itself with oppressive governments – all in an effort to smother the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people around the world...It is deeply disturbing that the self-proclaimed ‘leader of the free world' will ally with bigots at the drop of a hat to advance the right wing's anti-gay agenda."
And he wasn’t a bigot to begin with? Sigh. The heinousness of the anti-queer agenda in this world never ceases to amaze me.

Two things feminists need to do once their regime has been crippled: 1) rethink their lives and 2)get a dictionary.

The term "homophobia" means "fear of gays" not "hatred of gays." But, lets have to some fun here. If -phobia can be attached to anything to which a person does not agree with, nor accept, then I'm kleptophobic (fear of thieves). I don't agree with them, nor associate myself with them, but that doesn't matter. My own bigotry of a particular "lifestyle" has blinded me. There's something else that needs to be said: phobia is generalized as an illness. So if I'm homophobic, I'm ill. And you're mocking my illness. So who is more intolerant, hateful, and bigotted now? Silence.

It is, of course, typical for pro-gays to call rightwingers anti-gay merely because they don't agree with them. I myself would not want homosexuals representing our country, nor in positions of political power to change that. But I also don't want corrupt officials who support homosexual activity or spew hatred over gays. So I guess we'll just have to restart the government then, won't we?

The heinousness of the pro-gay agenda never fails to amuse me. Disagreeing equates to "intolerant." Whatever floats their boat, I guess; however off-axis it may be.

Alito has been confirmed, much to the dismay of many liberals, feminists, and the like. 58-42 was the voting line, angled along party lines. Go figure. Interesting times lay ahead, guaranteed.

Life Begins At Conception, Says Indiana; Ann Disagrees

From FeministBlogs:

Here's a hint: It starts with "con" and ends with "ception." (And, sadly, it's not "contraception.")

Indiana is considering legislation that would require abortion providers to tell women that life begins at conception. Even though the state already has mandatory pre-abortion counseling (and a slew of other abortion restrictions), a new law would require women seeking abortions to be informed in writing "that human life begins when a human ovum is fertilized by a human sperm."

Huh? Haven't they heard that South Dakota (surprise, surprise) aready tried this? A federal judge prevented the law from taking effect. Under the Indiana law, doctors would also have to notify women that the fetus may feel pain during an abortion and an anesthetic, which may or may not be paid for by insurance, could be used on the fetus if the woman is at least 20 weeks along.

So, what subjective statement will the state of Indiana attempt to legislate next? "Adam and Eve - not Adam and Steve," "Abstinence makes the heart grow fonder," or maybe just "Jesus died for your sins."

I'm guessing the main problem here is that Ann thinks that woman might feel a pang of regret or guilt about getting an abortion. My question is: if the child is not alive, then why is someone feeling guilty at all? You don't feel guilty about throwing away a trash bag, since it's not alive, so why is guilt even associated with abortion? I guess its just the government's fault for the guilt, "traumatizing young, battered women into feeling guilty for no reason," would be the usual banter that would ensue.


Jesus died for your sins would not be a new line, but perhaps "May Mother Earth bless you" would be preferable, right? Whatever.

Father Knocks-Out Daughter's Molester

An angry father who marched into a classroom and punched a teacher's assistant in the face said Wednesday he was protecting his 15-year-old daughter, who had accused the man of inappropriately touching her.Dave F. Swafford, 42, was charged with felony battery on a school employee after he hit the 35-year-old aide in front of a class full of students at Lakewood Ranch High School near Bradenton Tuesday morning, authorities said. He was also named ``Father of the Year'' by a local radio station for his actions.``I'm not real proud of what I did,'' Swafford told The Associated Press Wednesday. ``You have to protect your children, and my daughter does not lie to me.'' A verbal exchange became heated, and ``I lost control,'' he said. He spent about 10 hours in jail and got out later Tuesday after posting bond.The Tampa radio station that named him ``Father of the Year'' offered him and his family tickets for the Daytona 500 race.``If some other parents would do this, maybe some of these pedophiles would crawl back under rocks where they belong,'' Swafford said.

He certainly sounds like a terrible, heartless, vigilante-of-a parent, doesn't he?

Female Leaders: Nurturing?

From FeministBlogs:

OMG, a woman become president of the US?! The women's movement has only been going on for what, like forever or something. No but really, I think this is
something to think about. Is this merely a re-inscription of the belief that women as *nurturers* can, you know, bring the country back together? Or are people actually making a connection between patriarchal oppression and corruption (gasp!)?

No, people are just making the connection that women as leaders don't last very long, nor or very good at leading such a position.

Why Feminists Enrage Me: They Never Make The Connection

Reason One: They Never Make The Connection

From DedSpace:


The very people who stand in front of abortion clinics, heckling frightened young women, are the same people who would say "huh?" if you brought up the subject of factory farming with them. They are willing to go to jail to save a fetus, but will sit down to dine on cows, sheep, pigs, and chickens that have been obscenely tortured, then inhumanely killed. They will wear leather without flinching, and do not want to know about the terrible treatment of the lab animals that were used to make their lipstick and aftershave.Many of us do not think that being human means we have the right to eat and wear other animals. That is our deep conviction. But even realizing that many others do not feel that way, it is nevertheless puzzling that anyone would consent to eating and wearing animals who have been tortured, whose entire lives have been filled with misery, and whose deaths have been painful. But that is what factory farming is all about.

I find it slightly odd that people who say "You can murder your unborn child" are more concerned over the welfare of a cow than over the unborn child. So they are trying to say a cow is more human than an unborn child?

How anyone could compare a cow to a human is beyond me. The Syndicate feels no regret over the deaths of cows to make cheeseburgers; animals have their place, humans have theirs. But, lets just assume that God doesn't exist and we live in the wonderful world of "No-Morals."

In "No-Morals" unborn children do not matter. They are considered accidents more than human beings. They are slaughtered and dumped in trash bins merely because the women screwed around to much and got pregnant. A cow, on the other hand, gets better treatment, doesn't get killed ruthlessly but instead gets to live unchecked on overpopulated farms because somebody sees a cheeseburge and feels bad.

That's the Feminist-version of "No-Morals." Here's the realworld version:

If there are no morals, it doesn't matter what I believe, since no body has any intrinsic value or worth. Therefore, if somebody wants to murder unchecked then so be it. "Might makes rights." If someone disagrees, its my AK-47 vs. their handgun. I'm stronger, therefore, I decide the morals. Cows, humans, whatever, all are free-game. Oh wait, so this doesn't sound tasteful? Gee, I wonder why.

Some people just never make the connection. Given the choice, it seems logical to assume that feminists would rather want a cow to be alive rather than see a woman be put through the *gasp* undeserved agony of childbirth (note the sarcasm on the last part).

I'm not condoning cruelty to animals, but when animals are treated better than humans, somehow deserve life more, is when it's gone too far.

The 45 Million Lost

It's the 33rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade. In the time that women have been given this ability to murder their unborn children, over 45 million people have been senselessly slaughtered. Consider this: 45 million is more people murdered by women than by Hilter, Stalin, and Pol Pot combined. So, I believe the best term would a holocaust.

Crucifying Lady Justice: Rapist Gets Off Scot-Free

From Halifax Herald:

A judge has sentenced a 60-year-old Lunenburg County man to a year of house arrest for molesting a six-year-old girl who called him Grampy. "Clearly we’re here to follow the law and this would be an appropriate place for a conditional sentence," said defence lawyer Barry Whynot. During his house arrest and probation, Mr. Hirtle must have no contact with the victim; stay away from schoolyards, public swimming pools and other places young people congregate; seek substance abuse and psychiatric counselling; and have no unsupervised contact with anyone under 15.Outside court, Crown attorney Paul Scovil said the sentence means Mr. Hirtle will receive treatment he probably wouldn’t get behind bars."As there was no physical harm to the child, even though I’m sure that there was trauma, in that sense, I don’t think I would have gotten over a two-year period if I’d asked for it," Mr. Scovil said. "I wouldn’t get a federal sentence. So if we’re under the two-year period, he would unlikely be getting any treatment in a provincial institution.

At what point does the government lose its God-given ability to personally dispense justice? How many people does the justice system have to harm before people are fed-up and began bringing justice themselves? If I were that girl's parents, the moment I caught him in the act, he would have been dead. There's no excuse for giving a rapist zero-jail time, even if he "says he's genuinely remorseful."

If the king fails to dispense justice, then the people will seek it on their own. To excuse a crime like this is to personally crucify Justice and say, "Go to Hell."

"He molested my baby and they want to say that’s OK," said the woman, who cannot be named because her daughter’s identity is banned from publication.

Is the only way these teachers can actually have sex is by screwing around with kids who they know will give in? Most of them are in their late thirties, frequently unmarried, and generally average looking. It seems that the kind of power they want, they know they can't get if they are married, so they resort to sex-with-teens, teens who are still probably stronger than them, to get the kind of power they want. Vox put it correctly when he said:

[Or]...perhaps they are just strong independent women keen to exercise their
sexual dominance over the only "men" who will accept it.

Maybe it has nothing to do with power and merely because they simply cannot get married because they waited too long to do so. So much for independence, right?

Staying The Hand of "Justice": 11-year Old Allowed To Live, For Now

From WorldNetDaily:

Officials on Thursday suspended plans to end life support for an 11-year-old
girl beaten into a coma, saying her condition had changed, just two days after a
court cleared the way for her to be allowed to die.
Haleigh's death could
lead to murder charges against her stepfather, Jason Strickland, 31, an auto
mechanic accused of battering her but who had fought to keep her on life
support.
Massachusetts state officials said doctors would run more tests on
Haleigh Poutre after taking her off a ventilator this week -- a dramatic change
for a girl whose brain was found partly sheared when she was hospitalized on
September 11.
The Supreme Judicial Court, the state's top court, decided on
Tuesday that her breathing machines and feeding tubes could be
disconnected.
Denise Monteiro, a spokeswoman for the Department of Social
Services, said Haleigh had begun to breath on her own after surgeons inserted a
tracheostomy tube in her larynx this week.
"However she does not have any
capabilities to swallow or to suck or anything like that, so she is still 100
percent dependent on us," she said.
"There is some responsiveness and we
don't know if it is reflex or if it is more than that, so that's why she's going
through a battery of tests," she added.
Apparently, life is no longer sacred, where people, when beaten into comas, are allowed to live until they either die from natural causes or they regain consciousness. The Terri Shiavo case was similar where a woman, beaten into a coma, was taken on and off life-support three separate times, but the last time was the final time, as she died afterwards.

The Sanctity of Life is being burned as we speak. Remember the Syndicate's first article, the one about Peter Singer? Same principle: murdering the helpless.

You Continue To Be A Die-Hard Feminist If...

...the death of a country, or continent, is preferable over raising a family.

...you bow at the altar of Roe v. Wade every morning before going to work.

...you think that women will be starving on the streets if abortion were somehow overturned, failing to understand that abortion and unwanted pregnancies will be less likely to occur.

...you believe that men are greedy, power-hungry, heartless animals that would beat and oppress women at every corner.

...you think that man care what job you have over your personality and physical appearance.

...being a surgeon is more important than raising a family, in your opinion.

...you have deceived yourself into thinking that men actually want a bossy feminist as a wife, over a loving one who respects him and his authority.

...you read an anti-feminist blog without understanding anything, so you go out, write something offensive, and think you are empowered by it.

...you believe that men think women are simply baby-popping machines that have their wombs owned by the government.

...the thought of actually having kids to keep a country alive is considered blasphemy towards feminism.

...if you think that you are stronger than any man you meet on the street, without ever having exercised a day in your life.

...you believe that pornography is the men's fault, not comprehending the fact that it takes two to tango that dance, and women dance all too much.

...Alito is demeaned under the titles: ScAlito, Stripsearch Sammy, or any other meaningless title.

...you still believe you have the right to slaughter your unborn child, regardless of circumstances.

...you think that any form of criticism towards "strong women" is evil, spiteful, hate-speech and has no place in a proper discussion.

More ways to discover if you're a die hard feminist to come...

Italy: Going To Hell In A Handbasket

From the almighty Echidne of the Snakes:

Two protest marches took place this weekend in Italy, one in Milan where fifty thousand women were marching to keep the current Italian abortion laws intact, and one in Rome where people were marching for the legalization of of same-sex civil unions. The opposition (the Italian wingnuts if you will) was not happy:

"These demonstrators are really nauseating," Reforms Minister Roberto Calderoli, a member of the right-wing Northern League, was quoted as saying by the Italian news agency ANSA. "Family is a serious thing, based on love between a man and a
woman."Culture Minister Rocco Buttiglione, who is close to the Vatican, told
reporters that people's energy should be spent on pro-family efforts like finding jobs and housing."These are the political problems you should put the spotlight on, because without children, Italy dies," Buttiglione said.
Right-o. Let's just force women to have more children. Let's not ask them why they have so few. Let's not learn that Italy has changed and most women now must hold a paid job but that most Italian men have not changed. They still largely don't lift a finger at home. And mothers get mommytracked in no time at all. How many children would you have if it meant not just a double work shift but a triple one, and maybe even a lower salary?This is one of the topics that truly pushes my buttons: the idea that women either don't have "enough" children (in Italy) or "too many" (in India), and that they will be made to do the right thing for the society. Never mind what the women themselves think. They don't count, except as instruments for bearing children, preferably sons.

I agree. We should force women to have more children, since that's what the government is doing already, right? Examples? Not being able to murder your own child would be such a terrible blow to "Choice."

One thing the Echidne of the Snakes fails to comprehend is that the average number of children being born to each Italian woman is one child. The fact that their population is being cut in half every generation, apparently, means nothing to you, right?

So here it is: Women DO NOT have enough children in Italy to keep their country out of the gutters. The country is becoming overrun with Muslims who are angry, poor, and squirting out kids faster than any of the Italians. But, leave it to the Enlightened Feminists of Italy to know what is best for their country.

Feminists: "Screw Italy, Italian men, and the patriarchial system. We have rights that need to be addressed. Whether our country has enough children is none of your concern, as you are simply men who have deprived strong women their rights for generations."

Oh yes, your beloved rights to abortions has served you so well!

So, frankly, feminists it is your pious nature that demands its own destruction. You ignore the obvious to make room for the selfish. You demand abortion on demand without any responsibility, while expecting men to carry you around forever. While you sit back in your lovely abortion clinics, your country is being populated by the Muslims who don't support abortion and are flourishing where you once tread. Ultimately your regime will end, but that will happen when either the Americans save your sorry hides or when the Muslims finally make Europe into their own land.

So much for feminist-intelligence.

Of Female Presidents

From Feminist Blogs :

In Chile, a woman was also elected to run the country. Michelle Bachelet is a leftist, a feminist and an atheist. Yet she won in this overwhelmingly Catholic country. She even intends to have a cabinet with equal numbers of men and women.On the other hand, the United States of America is not ready for a female president, I just read on the net. We are too fragile for such an experiment and it's against family values to let women have equal lives. I hope such naysayers are wrong, but I can see where they are coming from: fragile red state egos.

Yeah, that's it, Red state egos. You hit the nail on the had, feminist.

I suspect that Mrs. Feminist over here would vote for a woman, merely because that person is just that, a woman. It wouldn't take anything special, only the promise that "Abortion will remain legal, with no boundaries or responsibilities on your part" and there we have every feminist and below-average-intelligence woman voting for her. Like a steak dangling over a dog.

I especially love the last part of her statement, the part where she says "fragile red state egos." History would show us that even the slightest remark about women not being as strong as men will automatically entitle you to receive a bombardment of mindless insults, all to show you that women are not weak, and can take a hit.

Ever spit in the wind before, Echidne?

Defending The Oldest Death Row Inmate

From APNews My Way:

California executed its oldest death row inmate early Tuesday, minutes after his 76th birthday, despite arguments that putting to death an elderly, blind and wheelchair-bound man was cruel and unusual punishment. Clarence Ray Allen was pronounced dead at 12:38 a.m. at San Quentin State Prison. He became the second-oldest inmate put to death nationally since the Supreme Court allowed capital punishment to resume in 1976. Allen, who was blind and mostly deaf, suffered from diabetes and had a nearly fatal heart attack in September only to be revived and returned to death row, was assisted into the death chamber by four large correctional officers and lifted out of his wheelchair. His lawyers had raised two claims never before endorsed by the high court: that executing a frail old man would violate the Constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment, and that the 23 years he spent on death row were unconstitutionally cruel as well.

I fail to see how executing a murderer who note killed outside of prison, but arranged three more from inside is cruel and unusual punishment. The man may have been old, but as far as I'm concerned, justice was served. The claim of him being old is not an excuse. The claim that he is frail is not an excuse, as the executors were able to perform the deed.

Isn't it interesting how some people just love to defend the murderers. It was the same with Tookie Williams. A violent murderer was executed, but everyone defended him because they claimed that he was repentent and turned from his life; there was no evidence of this. This guy didn't apologize for his crimes, as he is trying to find a way out of the sentence.

But, this is society and we can never punish the guilty, only the innocent.

Depression and Abortion: What's the Deal Here?

I've seen many articles on news sites about how women who abortions are vastly more likely to experience depression and other mental disorders than those who don't; far more likely. This always struck me as odd, and partly for one reason: if the unborn baby is not alive, is just merely a mass of non-living tissue, then what is to feel depressed about? Is it traumatizing experiencing an abortion? If it was, 5,000 babies wouldn't die everyday, so it's not extremely physically painful. The killer is the emotional problems.

Many women who have abortions actually do not believe that they are not non-living masses of tissue, but human beings. The guilt is that they know what they are doing is wrong, and not consistent with their values. Of course, feminists would say that they have nothing to feel guilt about, since the child is not alive anyway.

Jill of Feministe produced this gem of cluelessness:


Over a two-day period at the center, the message to women was consistent: abortion was psychologically and physically damaging, and God would help provide for their children, however difficult the women’s straits, and in the short term, the center would supply some necessities.

In other words, they really lie. And they conveniently omit the fact that pregnancy isn’t exactly a walk in the part (and is statistically much more dangerous than abortion, and for many women has significant psychological effects). “You might be depressed after giving birth” isn’t a great argument against childbirth as a practice — and it’s certainly not a very good one against abortion, either. It’s even worse when these groups argue that you will be depressed after abortion — can you imagine a post-partum depression awareness group telling pregnant women
that, if they do go through with their pregnancy, they will absolutely be depressed to the point of suicide and will likely have severe physical complications that might kill them? There would be outrage, because it’s not acceptable to lie to people about the basic facts of certain medical procedures. And yet somehow, these folks justify it. And telling women that “we’ll help you for a while and then God will provide” is ridiculous. Sorry, but God doesn’t always provide. Shit happens, and things fall apart. Giving pregnant women some maternity clothes and a pack of diapers doesn’t solve their problems. Of course, in most cases, neither does abortion — but pro-choice groups never claim that abortion is a cure-all the way that anti-choice groups push childbirth and parenting as if it was an easy and magical adventure for everyone who goes through it.

Wow. Leave it to Feministe to act stupid on-demand. If I were her, I'd probably crawl into a corner and rethink my life.

Is abortion such a precious item that denying the fact that women are vastly more likely to get depression afterwards, that you would sacrifice the mental health of those whom you claim to care about? It's amazing that for some people to be happy, abortion has to remain this guiltless, painless, completely legal procedure that ensures your "right" to work is kept in place.

Sorry, feministe, but God always provides. I've never known someone who put their trust in God and is lying on the streets, starving their heart out, on the verge of death. He may not provide in the form one desires, but the food, water, and shelter will be there if one merely decides to trust Him in that He will do it. Churches can only help so many people for so long before they say, "Look, we've helped you out this far. We're not going to baby you forever."

And about birth and parenting: most people actually like parenting, that is to say, most people who were born with any a) conscience and b) desire to love their children. Those who are like "parenting sucks, it's such a miserable experience" were likely without both A and B. Nobody's saying parenting is easy, but it's a far-cry from the Hell that they portray it as. Here's your prize Jill.

Pastors Against Pastors: The Unholy Left vs. The Religious Right

From WorldNetDaily:
More than 30 local pastors last night officially accused two evangelical megachurches of illegal political activities. The grievance claims that the Rev. Rod Parsley of World Harvest Church and the Rev. Russell Johnson of Fairfield Christian Church improperly used their churches and affiliated entities — the Center for Moral Clarity, Ohio Restoration Project and Reformation Ohio — for partisan politics, including supporting the Republican gubernatorial candidacy of Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell. The complaint asks the IRS to seek a court injunction "if these churches’ flagrant political campaign activities do not cease immediately." It was signed by 31 pastors from nine denominations during a meeting last night at the North Congregational United Church of Christ in Columbus and was to be faxed late last night to IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson. "For me, it’s church and state, not church in state and I really feel there are some churches in central Ohio crossing that line," said Eric Williams, senior pastor of the host church. "The law allows church involvement in issues. This goes beyond issue-involvement to
partisan politics and we’re simply asking the IRS to uphold the law." "It’s sad to see the religious left and the secular left forge an unholy alliance against people of faith," Johnson said. "We have invited people to pray, to serve and to engage, and candidly, we will not be intimidated or bullied by these folks." In a statement e-mailed to The Dispatch last night, Mark Youngkin, spokesman for Parsley, did not directly address the allegations. But he said the World Harvest Church, Center for Moral Clarity and Reformation Ohio are separate nonprofit ministries "who are committed to full compliance with all applicable federal tax laws governing" the organizations.

Leave it to the left to act like traitors and join sides with the government. What do the liberals think they are gaining by siding with a secular government that cares nothing for God's Ways? I'm not saying that whatever pastors do is alright, but the liberal Christian community better wise-up. The world does not care for their petty little concerns, it only wants further reasons to demonize Christianity.

When we're not fighting a common enemy, we're fighting each other. Thank you liberals for your startling displays of loyalty and cooperation...with the secular government.

Women, The Marriage, and The Workplace

From Philobiblion:

A fascinating pamphlet from World War II America: Do you Want Your Wife to Work, from the GI Roundtable Series It is a curious melange, showing clear signs of being assembled by a committee, lurching from extremely reactionary to entirely reasonable:

But women are not made only for having babies. They have hands and brains and even in a man-made world have acquired innumerable skills. Women, therefore, have capacity for a work function similar to that of men. It would seem that the core of the "woman problem" consists of the difficulty in combining an outside job with homemaking and motherhood.
Plus ca change ...Then there's: Can War Marriages be Made to Work, containing the remarkably sensible advice:

The "fifty-fifty" marriage, the kind in which neither husband nor wife orders the other around but in which they share equal authority and
parallel responsibility, seems to have the best chance of success. There are persons who like to be bossed and others who enjoy bossing. If such
individuals happen to pair off, the marriage may be a success. But in
general American women are not by temperament or by training inclined to play the role of door mat in marriage any more than American men.
Reading that, I couldn't help thinking that large parts of fundamentalist America would today find that simple statement unacceptably radical. Would it appear in an official federal publication today? I doubt it.

People who dislike feminism are not saying that women can't work, shouldn't work or are not capable of working. It's about: should women work when they have a family to take care? Granted, it's their choice to make, but ultimately, the question is: what is more important, your job or your family? If you consider that somehow an afront to your little belief that women shouldn't be the ones to stay home, bummer. It's just the way it is. Women can hold jobs, work and make tedious powerpoint presentations all they want, people will always find replacements for those jobs, though. It's a lot harder to find a wife, a lot harder. And the job is never replaceable.

I hate the arguments about submission and marriages. It seems that this is an area where women are vastly concerned it. Most men would not abuse their wives when married, nor force them to do anything. They do, however, desire respect (as well as love). The issue of equal command is something that I hear about all the time, whether on Christian forums or on the God-forsaken internet. And of course the pitiful feminists are in uproars when it comes to women submitting in marriage.

People seem to think that submission means becoming a doormat. Its not about that. Its about showing respect towards the husband the same way people show respect towards God. It's not slavery, or servitude, or any other beaten-to-death term that has been thrown-around like an old throw pillow.

"Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body." Ephesians 5:22-30

But, that doesn't REALLY mean submission, only share equal authority. Because Christ shares equal authority with us about running things, right?

Bill Offered To Ban Bestiality: Oh What A Time We Are In

From Seattle Pi:

Reacting to a story that drew gasps of horror across the country, a state senator is asking her colleagues to outlaw sex with animals. The issue drew unwanted attention to Washington state last year, when authorities revealed that a man died of a perforated colon after having sex with a horse on a farm in rural King County.
Sheriff's officers believed they had no options for criminal charges for the man's companions because bestiality was not explicitly covered under the state's animal cruelty law. Prosecutors did eventually get one conviction for trespassing.
Animal advocates responded with a push to outlaw bestiality, and Sen. Pam Roach, R-Auburn, vowed to sponsor the measure. Her bill began its legislative journey Thursday, heading to the Senate Judiciary Committee for review. "It's something from which (animals) need to be protected," the veteran lawmaker said Thursday. "It was shocking to a lot of people that this kind of thing went on." Bestiality is explicitly illegal in parts of the country, but Washington is one of about 20 states that do not address the issue in lawbooks, animal activists said. That should change
this year, said Susan Michaels, co-founder of the animal welfare group Pasado's Safe Haven. "Our first response was, 'I can't believe this isn't already illegal,'" Michaels said. "The next response was, 'Who could possibly be against this?'"

The term repulsive doesn't even come close to describing a situation like this. Bestiality is quite possibly one of the most perverted acts humans can commit. They go so far beyond the natural that its hard to believe that people could act like animals. But, to make it more perverse, more and more people are performing the act after the announcement of this man's death. At first I figured the guy was trampled to death from the horse; then I realized it was a problem with his colon.

Many people find it so abhorrent that they refuse to even touch the bill. The bill would make videotaping bestiality, and engaging in the act illegal with a five year prison sentence and a fine of up to $10,000.

I wonder where we will be in ten years. Perhaps then, people will view bestiality as "something you are born into," just like with homosexuality. Nobody in the fifties or sixties thought homosexuality would ever be accepted publicly. It was frowned-upon, which it should be. Now, nobody blinks when they see it. Maybe that is the fate of bestiality.

North Korea Threatens U.S. With Nukes If Invaded

From CBS News:

“Tell the American people that you met the general. If the United States invades our country and starts a war, the People’s Army will fight to the death and defend ourselves, taking appropriate revenge,” says Gen. Bok. Does the general think that the United States might attack North Korea? “We firmly believe that the United States will carry out its policies on our country, even if they have to use military means,” Gen. Bok tells Rather. “What we can say to you definitely right now is that we currently have nuclear weapons,” he threatens.

It's a dangerous thing putting nuclear weapons in the hands of insane leaders. North Korea's leader thinks that his nuclear weapons would be able to match the United States' weapons. They are wrong. I would pity him for being so naive, but I feel more inclined to feel sorry for the North Koreans who are constantly suffering from their leaders' incompetence, arrogance, and stupidity.

Iranian Leader Demands European's Trust

From DrudgeReport:

Ahmadinejad called the accusations against Iran were "propaganda" and that the presence of surveillance equipment from the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency is proof Iran has nothing to hide. He complained that "a few" Western countries were lobbying against Iran and said Tehran did not trust them. "They speak and behave as if they are living in the medieval age," the hard-line leader said. "I'm recommending these countries not isolate themselves more among the people of the world. Resorting to the language of coercion is over." He said Iran had tried for two and a half years to restore the trust of the international community, including by sealing some research sites, signing a protocol allowing snap IAEA inspections and ceasing uranium enrichment. "Now, it is the turn of the European countries to apply trust-building measures," he said.

I don't think Europe and the Americas are likely to trust a lunatic leader who claims the holocaust never happened, hates Americans, and believes Israel needs to be wiped off the map. Would you trust nuclear weapons in the hands of an insane leader? Or better yet, would you trust nuclear weapons in the hands of anyone, even your own family members? Who would you trust with the ability to a nuclear launch?

Kind-of puts things into perspective, doesn't it?

Minneapolis May See Vampire On Election Ballot

From SundayTimes:

"Politics is a cut-throat business," said Jonathan "The Impaler" Sharkey, who said he plans to announce his bid for governor on the ticket of the Vampyres, Witches and Pagans Party. Like Jesse "The Body" Ventura, who was elected governor as an independent in 1998, the 41-year-old Sharkey once was a wrestler, although he spent his time "The Unholiest of Kings: Tarantula" on obscure professional circuits.
"I'm a Satanist who doesn't hate Jesus," Sharkey said. "I just hate God the Father."
However, he claims to respect all religions and if elected, will post "everything from the Ten Commandments to the Wicca Reed" in government buildings. Sharkey also pledged to execute convicted murders and child molesters personally by impaling them on a wooden pole outside the state capitol. Sharkey told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he's a vampire "just like you see in the movies and TV." "I sink my
fangs into the neck of my donor ... and drink their blood," he said, adding that his donor is his wife, Julie.
Wow. This is quite possibly the most unusual thing I have ever heard all week long. May God have mercy on us.

NBC Nashville Pulls Book of Daniel, TGW Histerical

Man, you just have to love the insensitive feminists known as the Tennessee Guerilla Women, with their undying hatred of Christianity, their perpetual insults towards those they disagree with and their...well, we'll let the article speak for itself:

The new NBC show, The Book of Daniel has been yanked from the air by the yokels at the local NBC affiliate, Channel 4. According to the station's General Manager, Elden Hale Jr., the city of Nashville is too sensitive for the show, or Nashville is "a particularly religiously sensitive city."What Elden means to say is that he's been hearing from some ever-vigilant fundamentalist Christians, who say the show is blasphemous. It's an Abomination cuz there's a gay man and a lesbian on the show. The Book of Daniel "features one of primetime's few openly gay male characters, has a lesbian supporting character and is written by a gay screenwriter."The American Family Association and Focus on the Family have orchestrated letter-writing campaigns in their ever vigilant campaign to stamp out every voice and every view that is not their own. And they don't care who they hurt. Rather than letting us watch the show and rot in their mythical hell, they've convinced the local yokels at Channel 4 to join them in the campaign to promote Old-Time religious ignorance and bigotry.Gawd help us. Can we raise some money for airfare to send these wackos to the Promised Land? But would Big Sur even take them?

Apparently, Christians are the only ones that can't do anything about things that offend them, no matter how severe and demeaning they may be. Of course, why is this so surprising? It's not, its just amusing and sad at the same time to see. Rabid feminists are particularily vulgar in their mockeries about Christianity, the supposed religion of ignorance, female oppression, and fairy tales, correct?

I'm not particularily offended by what she says towards Christians, considering who is actually saying them. One thing I've noticed among people of this type is their hypocrisy.

Hey, you can't say that about women! Its demeaning and untrue!

Really? You didn't seem to care about Christians when you were mocking them. Or does mockery only count when its spewed towards Christians?

Uh....

Well, you get the idea.

Iran Threatens To Block U.N. Nuke Inspections

From DrudgeReport"

Iran threatened on Friday to block inspections of its nuclear sites if confronted by the U.N. Security Council over its atomic activities. The hard-line president reaffirmed his country's intention to produce nuclear energy. The move came a day after France, Britain and Germany - backed by the United States - said that nuclear talks with Iran had reached a dead end after more than two years of acrimonious negotiations and the issue should be referred to the Security Council. With the support of Russia and China uncertain, however, they refrained from calling on the 15-nation council to impose sanctions and said they remained open to more talks.
British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, in an interview with the British Broadcasting Corp., said Friday: "Obviously if Iran failed to comply, the Security Council would then consider sanctions."

There is only one way to end this conflict: a global war. If Iran wants to use their weapons against Israel, then let them try. Iran will get pummelled by Israel. Israel is more than capable of handling the situation on their own, and with the support of Russia and China in the air, Iran may not have the "defiance of superpowers" attitude it once had, especially if they decide to pull away from Iran.

"If they have any discussion in the stage of nuclear fuel production, we are prepared to continue our talks with the three European countries," he said. Mottaki, however, insisted that Iran won't give up its right under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty to possess the whole nuclear fuel cycle - from extracting uranium ore to enriching it. "No one can take this right from the Iranian nation. Regaining this right doesn't require permission from any country," the television quoted him as saying. Europe's negotiations with Iran has been aimed at getting Iran to permanently abandon uranium enrichment but Iran says it won't give up its right under the treaty to enrich uranium and produce nuclear fuel. Russia renewed its call for Iran to resume its moratorium on nuclear activities and cooperation with the IAEA.

Iran won't give up its nuclear regime, especially with so much glorious power at stake. Imposing sanctions, making threats won't sway their plans, being the arrogant fools that they are, they will continue this "wishing rather that the world remain divided." (Quote from the Animatrix)

Supposedly by March, Iran will have its weapons completed. Thats the time when everything will begin to heat up. I'm afraid that these are intersting times.

The Fight For Freedom, From A Tortured Man's Eyes

From FLTimes:

Seven hellish days of torture in an Egyptian prison did nothing to diminish Muslim-turned-Christian Majed El Shafie’s faith in God, but it did ignite a passion for helping other persecuted Christians worldwide. El Shafie, founder of Toronto-based One Free World Ministries, will share his harrowing story and testimony at 7 p.m. Sunday at Em-manuel United Methodist Church in Newark. Through his ministry, he has reached out to lawmakers in the United States, Canada and Israel to relieve the plight of persecuted Christians in Asia and the Middle East. El Shafie urges love and forgiveness in the face of terrible hardship. “I decided to forgive those who tortured me, but with forgiveness comes action,” he said. “We have to help the people that are suffering for their beliefs.”

Need Help Living? Hire A Life Coach!

From FeministBlogs:

While this news is a bit old, I have to know what y’all think about this.

The New York Times had an article on “life coaching” the other day, an apparent growing trend amongst young women. The article begins:

To figure out what you want to do with your life, you could:

A) Study hard in school, get internships in the field that interests you, work diligently and learn as much as possible at your first real job.

Or:

B) Hire a life coach.

A lot of women in their 20's are opting for B…

For $200 to $500 a month, the lucky ladies will receive information and advice via telephone concerning, well, their lives. Jane magazine featured a big article on it in this month’s issue. The coaches not only help you with school and work, but with your personal life as well. Am I just being nitpicky, or does this "trend" seem to perpetuate the idea that women are helpless and incapable of running their own lives?

No, the women perpetuate the idea that they are incapable of running their own lives, not the stupid male oppressors who put forth this survey. They can't even act incompetent out of their own free will; so much for freedom, right? This is not to say that all young ladies today are like this, but a large portion of them have demonstrated this (not able to run their lives) to be true.

The Horrors From Whenst They Come

MediaGirl has something interesting to say about an America that she perceives will happened all because Alito is elected to the bench:

So we can look forward to an America where more young woman scream into their pillows, fearful of an abusive parent finding out about an unwanted pregnancy she can no longer get help ending. More and more women will cry in their bathrooms, quietly so as not to upset their children, as they look down at a positive pregnancy test knowing that they can't afford another mouth to feed, horrified that there is no way out. More husbands will cry by their wife's bedside as high-risk pregnancies go bad, left to watch helplessly as she suffers, no trained doctors available to save her with a now-illegal lifesaving procedure. Hell, that America already exists in far too many states, but it can and will get worse under this new court, as this lying, Bork-worshipping conservative activist joins his buddies Scalia, Roberts and Thomas on the bench.

What else can we look forward to? More people screaming as their mouths fill with flood waters, as their lungs fill with noxious gases and their children's cries are silenced by asthmatic hacking, as more and more enviromental laws, workplace safety laws and public health systems are gutted by a rapacious corporate culture and their Republican shocktroops. These citizens will find less and less recourse from the courts as the Supreme Court will be packed now with corporate friendly ladder climbing ambitious assholes who've made it painfully clear they were willing to say anything, join any hate group to advance either their careers or their own bigotries. It's hard to tell which, since they are utterly unable as a group to speak honestly and
forthrightly about what they do believe. Monsters cloaking themselves in Hallmark platitudes.
Wow, all this because Alito is elected to the bench? I didn't realize what a scumbag he was! Thank you MediaGirl!

Ridiculous doesn't even begin to cover what she just said. While I respect her right to say it, I also respect her right to receive criticism. As such, I will say that America will not become a moral hell-hole merely because Alito is elected. Roe v. Wade will never! be overturned. It has become to much a part of our culture. But lets just say it was. I highly doubt that there will be more pregnancies. While abusive situations are tragedies, it is more likely that the more scarce abortion becomes the less people will screw around. They know that if they get pregnant, they won't be able to find a safe enough place to "carry out the deed." No doubt people will still act stupid, but that is there choice to make and I'm sorry that they will.

Another thing to consider: when a woman is on an operating table and its either her or the baby, they won't force her to die for the child, they will let her make her own choice. Its a situation where either decision leads to loss and suffering, but that wouldn't be considered abortion (it would be like seeing two friends hanging over the edge of a cliff, you can't save them both so you choose one while the other perishes). Its a terrible situation to be put through, but if you're pro-life and you choose to save your wife, that doesn't make you a hypocrite.

And yes, the government is already corrupt enough as it is. The Republicans are no worse, nor better than the Democrats. The party that claims to be Christian-friendly, what has it done to help Christians? Can you name any significant bill that was passed that once helped Christians?

And while MediaGirl is an expert at paranoia, insanity, and drama, she has one thing correct: politicians cannot speak honestly about their beliefs or stances. I'd rather listen to an honest politician who is a Democrat and unpopular, rather than a popular one who is from the Republican party. Don't waste my time by spouting out phony propositions, bills, and promises that won't be kept, or are cared about. Abortion is one thing I'd like to see go away, but nobody really believes that Roe v. Wade will be overturned, only the embittered feminist who sees herself as a victim of the stupid males oppression.

The Sexual Paranoia Continues

From FeministBlogs:

America is at a crucial juncture. The confirmation of Sam Alito will give dangerous leverage to the Republican War on Sex. The demagogues of the Radical Right say our culture is sex obsessed when it is actually sexually repressed. They’re doing everything they can to destroy the social and sexual progress we’ve made in the last 40 years. We’re looking at a return of sodomy laws, the loss of access to birth control as well as abortion, prison sentences for normal adult sexuality, complete loss of privacy, and strip searches without warrants if they succeed. Women will be out of the work force and under the thumbs of their husbands.

I love reading angry feminist's blogs, especially this one. The sheer ignorance and female paranoia she demonstrates towards Republicans, those that oppose abortion, and Sam Alito is nothing short of insanity. She seems to be hell-bent on demonizing pro-lifers and Mr. Alito to point where virtually anything seen to be against women is going to be made legal. I'm actually suprised at some of the stuff she put. I thought for one that she would probably put less, but make it more detailed. No matter.

To clear matters up:

Our culture is sex-obsessed. When you consider that a huge portion of the internet is pornography, something signals the "Sex-Obsessed" alarm.

What social and sexual progress? If putting sex on the TV is progress, and giving women the ability to murder their unborn child is progress, then what on earth is repression?

Laws against Sodomy and abortion will probably never be put into effect. They've become to much a part of our culture. Get over yourself, feminist.

Prison sentences for normal adult sexual activity? What? Fornication? Adultery? Or Rape? Do you consider any of these a crime, lady?

Complete loss of privacy? I guess she's drawing the "woe-is-me" abortion card again.

Strip searches without warrants is something usually women worry about, though I doubt that something like this will happen. And if it does, chances are, its not going to happen to you, or anybody out in public.

Women are already leaving the work force. All because of their stupid husbands right?! I guess no matter what they say, women can never say "I want to leave my job for my family," because a job is just so more important.

Put under the rule of husbands? Most husbands wouldn't abuse their wives. Believe it or not, during the 1700's, husband and wife actually loved each other very much, but you've probably been under the impression that husbands beat them, right?

All-in-all, Ms. Feminist doesn't really understand anything about the political system of sexual activity in this country. Like a rabid dog over a piece of meat, she jumps at the opportunity to act paranoid, demean Republicans, and flounder in a pool of "abortion rights."

America Apologizes to Chinese

This joke is from FortLiberty:

Dear China:
We're sorry that you don't train your fighter pilots better. As a token of our apology, here's a copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000. (Please take note of the Copyright)

We're sorry that your front-line fighter planes can't outmaneuver a 35-year old prop-driven airliner. Perhaps you'd like to consider purchasing some surplus 1950's era Lockheed Starfighters from Taiwan. (We just replaced all theirs with shiny new F-16's)

We're sorry his aircraft recognition skills were so poor he didn't realize the EP-3 aircraft was propeller driven and flew his aircraft through its propeller arc, destroying his aircraft and nearly killing 24 American crewmen.

We're sorry that you believe your territorial waters extend all the way to Australia. For future reference, here's an American 6th grade geography textbook. (Please take note of the Copyright information printed inside the cover.

We're sorry we have to fly surveillance missions to monitor a country that has nuclear missiles pointed at us.

We're sorry your fighter pilot's survival training and equipment was so inadequate that he couldn't survive until your poorly trained and equipped navy could find him (they turned down our offer for search and rescue assistance).

We're sorry you violated international law and arrested the crewmen of an aircraft that legally diverted into your airfield under emergency conditions caused by your pilot's actions.

We're sorry you violated international law and boarded a state aircraft.

We're sorry that you can't seem to see your part of this incident. We know that it may seem easier to blame others than to take responsibility. Consider this fact while we build several new Aegis destroyers for our friends in the Republic of China (Taiwan).

We're especially sorry for treating you with such respect for the last 20 years. We will definitely rethink this policy and probably go back to treating you like a common, untrustworthy street gang very soon.

We're very sorry for ever granting you Most-Favored-Nation trading status and supporting your entrance into the World Trade Organization. This will be rectified at the soonest possible opportunity.

We're sorry the world is now seeing you for the enemy of freedom, truth, and democracy that you really are.

We're sorry you see yourself as a superpower when in reality you are a third world nation (the average Chinese worker earns less than 10 cents a day).

We're sorry you are losing so much face over this.

We're sorry that you were able to steal missile and nuclear secrets from us.

We're sorry you haven't learned from the Soviet Union's collapse and failed to embrace democracy and capitalism (compare tiny Taiwan and mainland China; same people, same culture, but Taiwan's capitalistic economy is a powerhouse and China's economy is still mired in communism).

And most of all, we're sorry for the Chinese people who suffer their leaders incompetence.
Sincerely,

Okay, I laughed. Whether old or recent, this joke is funny.

Iran Acts Defiant In The Face of Opposition

From WorldNetDaily:

Unfortunately, a group of bullies allows itself to deprive nations of their legal and natural rights," Ahmadinejad told a crowd during a visit to the port city of Bandar Abbas. His speech was broadcast live on state-run television. "The Iranian nation is not frightened by the powers and their noise." Former president Hashemi Rafsanjani took a sharper tone, denouncing the West's "colonial policy." "If they cause any disturbance, they will ultimately regret it," the cleric warned in a speech for the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha, also aired on state TV. "Even if (the Westerners) destroy our scientists, their successors would continue the job," he said. "It would not be easy for them to solve the (nuclear) case by imposing sanctions or anything like that."


Well, I guess Iran wouldn't be afraid of superpowers since it's got two on its side (China and Russia). And they are right, it wouldn't be easy to solve this problem by sanctions. Ultimately, this conflict will have to be resolved by yet another war with Iran. The winner is still unclear, depending on when it begins.

Get ready people.

The Chronicles Are Coming: Prince Caspian In The Works

From WorldNetDaily:

Variety confirms that not only is a ‘Narnia’ sequel happening, but it’s already moving ahead. Disney and Walden Media are already starting on a script for the follow up, to be based on the second book in C.S. Lewis’ classic fantasy series entitled ‘Prince Caspian’. The aren’t any director attachments to the project yet, and Andrew Adamson the director of ‘Lion, Witch, and Wardrobe’ is not signed on for sequels. That doesn’t mean they won’t resign him to do more, but at the moment no one is confirmed. In ‘Prince Caspian’, the children return to Narnia to discover that thousands of years have passed since they ruled the fantastical land. Their reign is now nothing but a distant legend, and the world under the control of a wicked king. Peter, Edmund, Susan, and Lucy must help a young prince named Caspian restore Narnia’s past. Even with Disney eager to push ahead on their new cash cow, it may be some time before the film hits theaters, or even begins production

The Chronicles of Narnia saved the box office this year, earning a grand total of 531 million dollars worldwide. The money this film has made is enormous, being one of the most popular films in 2005. Another Chronic-movie would rake in just as much, and hopefully, next time, Hollywood and Disney may have the guts to acknowledge that the Narnian books have a Biblical base.

But likely they won't.

Publication order of the books: 1) The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, 2) Prince Caspian, 3)The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, 4) The Silver Chair, 5) The Horse and His Boy, 6) The Magician's Nephew, and 7) The Last Battle

Bush Passes Bill, Criminalyzing "Annoyance"

From CNET:

This ridiculous prohibition, which would likely imperil much of Usenet, is buried in the so-called Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act. Criminal penalties include stiff fines and two years in prison. "The use of the word 'annoy' is particularly problematic," says Marv Johnson, legislative counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union. "What's annoying to one person may not be annoying to someone else." Buried deep in the new law is Sec. 113, an innocuously titled bit called "Preventing Cyberstalking." It rewrites existing telephone harassment law to prohibit anyone from using the Internet "without disclosing his identity and with intent to annoy."

Freedom of Speech? Kiss it goodbye! The entertainment value of watching America fall is both similar to a hollywood tragedy and a Shakespearean comedy. Everything that can go wrong in America has certainly proven that it will. Does Bush ever for once think what effects signing a particular bill into action might cause? If he even remotely cared, then he should have known that freedom of speech is essential to Americans, and trying to define what is annoying is about as hazardous as trying to argue against abortion with a rabid feminist.

The world has gone astray. Lunacy is flourishing. I know, because I actually agree with the ACLU on this issue. Crazy, isn't it?

Mexico Demands U.S. Legalize Aliens

From WorldNetDaily:

"Migrants, regardless of their migratory status, should not be treated like criminals," they said. The countries represented at the meeting _ including Mexico, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Belize and Panama _ created a working group to design a regional policy to avoid migrant abuse and to follow the course of the legislation. "There has to be an integrated reform that includes a temporary worker program, but also the regularization of those people who are already living in receptor countries," Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez said.
Derbez has called the measure _ which passed the U.S. House of Representatives last month but still must go before the Senate _ "stupid and underhanded," but was somewhat more restrained on Monday, saying "it's not the Mexican government's position to tell the U.S. Senate what to do."

Mexico needs to shut up. They are in no position to demand anything from the U.S. after what it has done to us. With all their citizens pouring in, its amazing that they still have a functioning economy. Maybe they would prefer it if we just invaded, took over the country, turned it into a colony and maybe resurrected the country. The very idea that America is supposed to care what Mexico wants in relation to the illegal aliens is simply quite laughable. I laughed when I first read this, now I'm getting aggravated.

Alito Hearings: The Big Issues

From StopTheACLU:

"There will be six major issues that the democrats will be trying to use to obstruct the confirmation of Alito.

1. His view on abortion:
In an application for the job of deputy assistant attorney general written nearly 20 years ago , Alito, then working in the Solicitor General’s office preparing cases for argument for the Supreme Court, said, “I am particularly proud of my contributions in recent cases in which the government has argued in the Supreme Court that racial and ethnic quotas should not allowed and that the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion.”

2. Strip searching a 10 year old girl.
This is one the democrats are trying to use to vilify Alito. They twist this ruling completely out of context in hopes people will think Alito is an extremist that doesn’t care about privacy. The issue before the court was not whether the search was proper but whether police should be faced with possible monetary fines for acting reasonably on the basis of the warrant and affidavit.

3. No Federal Ban on Machine Guns
In a 1996 case called United States v. Rybar, Alito dissented from two of his colleagues who upheld a federal law banning possession of machine guns. Democrats will try to throw this one out, but I doubt it has enough substance to stick very much.

4. Shooting a 15 year old in the back
In this case involving a 15-year old boy who broke into a house at night, the police arrived at the scene and ordered the burglar to halt. When he didn’t, an officer shot him to prevent his escape. Alito argued it was an issue better solved through the legislative branch. Another issue that doesn’t have any substance.

5. The race card
The Washington Post has a good roundup of how the Democrats are ready to go after Alito: This one doesn’t have much sticking power either, due to the fact that their star witness turned out to have no credibility. Besides, most reasonable people are not going to buy into the B.S. that just because he was a member of an organization that a racist was also a member of would make him a racist. If we followed that line of thinking, the entire democratic party would have to condemn itself for former KKK member Byrd.

6. THE BIGGIE! Expect to hear the same questions repeated a thousand times, and hours focused on this particular issue:
DOMESTIC SPYING BY THE BIG BAD BROTHER FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!
In 1984 Alito wrote a memo supporting the position held by the Carter and Reagan administration that former Attorney General John Mitchell should have immunity from lawsuits starting from domestic national security wiretapping that he ordered in 1970. The Supreme Court later rejected this position."


Ultimately, all of these issues mean nothing to the Democrats. The one and only issue that they will be concerned about is keeping Roe v. Wade legal. They believe that if Altio ascends to the court, Roe v. Wade will be overturned, abortion ruled illegal, and women will forced to live through the atrocity of actually having a kid.

Alito's in for tough times.

Music Availability Developes Listener Apathy?

From the Drudge Report:

"In the 19th century, music was seen as a highly valued treasure with fundamental and near-mystical powers of human communication," said North. "The pace of technological change has accelerated further over the last 20 years or so and these fundamental changes in the nature of musical experience and value have arguably become even more pronounced. "Because so much music of different styles and genres is now so widely available via portable MP3 players and the internet, it is arguable that people now actively use music in everyday listening contexts to a much greater extent than ever before. "The degree of accessibility and choice has arguably led to a rather passive attitude towards music heard in everyday life.
Its hard to be really emotionally moved in any way positive when listening to the crap that the music industry pours out in diluge-like proportions. Most of the secular pop, rap, rock, metal, and screamo is generally BS and is not worth listening to. Apathy or empathy towards songs changes depending on what they preach.

British Airlines Ban Bibles To Avoid Offending Muslims

From WorldNetDaily:

A British airline banned its staff from taking Bibles and wearing crucifixes or St. Christopher medals on flights to Saudi Arabia to avoid offend the country's Muslims.
British Midland International also has told female flight attendants they must walk two paces behind male colleagues and cover themselves from head to foot in a headscarf and robe known as an abaya, the Mirror newspaper of London reported. Teddy bears or other cuddly toys also are not allowed. Airline officials, who have sparked outrage, the paper says, explain the Islamic kingdom's strict laws – enforced by religious police – prohibit public practice of Christianity and figures of animals.
BMI spokesman Phil Shepherd said: "In providing air services people want, demand and use, we have an obligation to respect the customs of the destination country."


No, you don't have an obligation to follow the customs of the destination country. The Muslims can take a hike if they don't like your customs, as it is your country they are living in, your airlines and your belief system. If they are offended, big deal. They have 5,000,000 square miles of Arab-lands to take offense at us.

This idea that we have to change our ways in order to not offend someone else is simply absurd. What about banning the Satanists bible or the Book of Shadows or some other ridiculous creation? Are they banning those? Doesn't seem like it.

Its more appropriate to start calling Europe "Eurabia" now that they've become so dedicated to following Muslims rules. Way to destroy a country, Great Britain!

An airline employee who asked not to be named told the Mirror: "It's outrageous that we must respect their beliefs but they're not prepared to respect ours."

Outrageous Quotations: No More "Truth About Abortion"

From the Washington Times:

Gov. Jim Doyle on Friday vetoed a bill that would have forced doctors to tell women seeking abortions after their fifth month of pregnancy that their fetuses could suffer pain.

So are they trying to so: Slicing up an unborn baby, MIGHT, possibly, cause an unborn child to experience pain? How truly odd and unheard of!

GunJam says it perfectly:

But abortion advocates are in denial: If we don’t think about it, it might go away What might go away? The guilt of knowing you are snuffing out a young life?As Michael Savage said on his talk radio show yesterday: Abortion is an act of societal
suicide.The population – outside of immigrants – simply is not growing in this country – thanks, in large part, to political creeps like Wisconsin’s Governor Doyle.

Nations don't get murdered, they commit suicide. Abortion is society suicide.

Talking Elmo: Who Wants To Die?

From Local6 News:

A mother in Dallas is one of several parents complaining about a new interactive book for toddlers in which Sesame Street character Elmo asks "who wants to die?" according to a Local 6 News report.

Family members said 16-month-old Miranda Boll's new book, "Potty Time With Elmo," was supposed to teach an interactive lesson using voice commands. However, when the book's buttons are pressed, it reportedly says something it is not supposed to -- "who wants to die?"

"It's a sick joke," mother Angela Bolls said. "If it's a joke then it's a bad one, you know? And it's not necessary. It's inappropriate." Bolls said she checked another copy of the same book and found that it says something completely different; "Who wants to try to go potty?" The company that makes the book said it has had several complaints concerning the book, according to the report.

Okay, I laughed. Apparently, according to Diggnation.com, somebody hacked into the Elmo manufacturing plant (or whatever it is) and changed what he was supposed to say to this. I found it hillarious.

You're Still A Die-Hard Feminist If...

...you believe that Alito can single-handedly overturn Roe v. Wade merely by stepping to the bench.

...you constantly banter and whine about oppressive males, serving only to prove that you are not strong, nor independent.

...you think that you are the sole-decider of whether an unborn baby lives or dies.

...you can't stand to see someone else disagree with you, thereby justifying you to send a volley of insults and mindless rhetoric over to his blog, website, or email account.

...you seem to think being a feminist entitles you to receive above-normal respect.

...you justify the right to an abortion by saying that "It's my body and I can do with it what I want to" while ignoring the statement "I'm stronger than you, therefore, I can do what I want with you."

...you feel that feminism gives you power. It only makes you more pathetic.

...you believe that whenever a male is in-charge in the family or does something for his wife, it means he's a domineering patriarch and the wife is unhappy (contrary to whatever he/she/both say).

...you think that men should have to pay you undeserved amounts of respect, while treating you with equality.

...you take offense to the question "Do you need help carrying that?" or "Let me help you."

...you believe that society will gradually begin to accept feminism, even though it has shown signs of deterioration.

...you think that men are the problem and that they are the result of the majority of female deaths in America.

...you think that walking down a dark alley, alone, in the middle-of-night, in a semi-stripper outfit is a political statement, empowers you, but doesn't say "I'm vulnerable, please rape me."

...you think keeping Samuel Alito off of the Supreme Court will be considered the greatest achievement since Roe v. Wade.

...you can't take a compliment, then wonder why nobody speaks with you, wants to be with you, or comes near you.

More ways to find out if you are a die-hard feminist soon to come.

The Truth Ministry and The Billboards That Follow











Now, I fully expected FeministBlogs.com to comment on this billboard. Lo and behold, I was right. Naturally, it has been classified as a homophobic billboard, though it demonstrates no homophobia other than an opportunity to change.

Our society has been deeply saturated with the evil of homosexuality. Bestiality is next on the list of things to accept so be prepared for it. All Christianity aside, homosexuality is still not natural. You are not "born gay." You are born normal, you just have a different set of demons ruining your life. Everbody struggles with something, but you still have a choice to change. Maybe I'm a thief, but I don't want to be one. Does that mean I have kleptophobia (fear of thieves)? You are not born a thief. Its a choice, but you can make a change in that area.

The world (society) would like to teach us that homosexuality (and since we're deteriorating at an alarming rate, bestiality) is normal and something you are born with. If that's the case then people are born murderers, thieves, rapists, pedophiles, and strippers. There's no changing.

Well, homosexuality doesn't affect anyone other than yourself!

It takes two to tango, buddy. In the quiets of your own room with your own fantasies, thats true. And I'm not saying we should make it illegal to be gay, but we shouldn't condone it as a society or what it teaches (that its okay to be gay).

If homosexuality is something you are born with, then we really don't have freedom to choose. And if that's the case, then its alright to be a thief or strippers. After all, its just something you are born with, the unnatural impulses to partake in the act.

Quake of the Week: Greece

QotW: Mondy, January 9, 2006; Greece; 6.9; Quake 3/year 2006

Third quake of the year and we are just over one week into 2006.

ATHENS, Greece -- A powerful earthquake shook Greece on Sunday and was felt as far away as the Middle East and Italy. Minor damage was reported in southern Greece, and authorities on the island of Crete said three people were slightly injured.
No tsunami warnings were issued.

The Athens Geodynamic Institute said the epicenter of the 6.9-magnitude quake was located beneath the seabed about 125 miles south of Athens and 12 miles east of the island of Kithira in the Sea of Crete.

"It was a very powerful quake which shook all of Greece. There have been dozens of aftershocks," institute head Giorgos Stavrakakis said. "The quake occurred deep undersea and that's what saved us."

Stavrakakis said he did not expect any serious aftershocks.
