Why I Hate the World in Three Links October 14, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in asshatery, disaster, Ecumenism, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, paganism, persecution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sickness, Society, unbelievable BS.
Or, stop the world, I wanna get off.
First, protestant Estonia has a museum that invites visitors to desecrate a virtual statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Sure to be a hit at the upcoming 500th anniversaries of the protestant revolt? Which, not coincidentally, is also the 100th anniversary of the most astounding public miracle seen at least since God Incarnate walked the earth, Fatima (h/t reader TT)?
The new National Museum of Estonia features an exhibit that invites visitors to desecrate a virtual image of the Virgin Mary, in celebration of the Protestant Reformation in the historically Lutheran nation.
A virtual image of Our Lady of Graces is projected onto a screen in a glass box. The image remains static until a visitor kicks a spot marked out on the plinth of the display. Once this area is kicked the image of Mary shatters into pieces and is replaced by the word “Reformation.” The exhibit then “resets” to the image of the Virgin Mary again, until the next visitor comes forward to kick it. [Who would think this a good idea? It’s as stupid as it is offensive?]
The Museum was inaugurated on the 29th September 2016 by the President of Estonia and the exhibit itself forms part of area that covers the history of the Reformation in Estonia.
This desecration of a sacred image has led to protests from Christian leaders and politicians in Estonia, who claim that the display mocks religion.
Boy, I guess we can look forward to all kinds of atrocities in the next year, while the ecumaniacs in the Church stand mutely silent?
Secondly, “Covergirl” makeup, which has long (always?) been a vehicle for immodesty and the undermining of the moral order, as well as a means to twist female psyches in all kinds of unhealthy, even self-destructive directions, is jumping on the trans bandwagon by naming their first male “covergirl:”
CoverGirl, the makeup brand that is known for introducing young girls to the world of makeup with their celebrity partnerships, just announced its first male CoverGirl.
James Charles, a 17-year-old aspiring makeup artist, recently went viral when he tweeted his yearbook photo:
Capitalizing off his popularity, CoverGirl publicized their partnership with Charles on Tuesday. In a post on Instagram, CoverGirl wrote, “Meet @JCharlesBeauty: makeup artist, boundary breaker, and the newest COVERGIRL! Spread the word by regramming using #COVERGIRLJames.”
Do you think Covergirl will be there to pick up the pieces of James’ shattered life when the impossible contradictions of transgenderism manifest in all manner of self-destructive behaviors, up to and including suicide attempts at a rate forty to eighty times greater than the general population?
No way. We all know that the consumer culture treats people as throwaway items. Abortion has proven that to the tune of at least 2 billion dead humans in the past 40 years.
Finally, and this is h/t ADG, it seems Obama – wait for it – lied! when he said he had been swamped with demands that he impose his illegal, unconstitutional transgender bathroom law earlier this year. In fact, he, or his flunkies, were approached by a handful of individuals and a couple of special interest groups, not usually the kind of groundswell of interest that will move a president to act…….unless this was something he always wanted to do, and just needed a bit of cover to do so:
When the official announcement was made that emotionally confused kids could use the bathroom and shower facility of their choice, the president and two federal agencies (the Departments of Education and Justice) said they were responding to a “growing chorus of educators, parents, and students” who were requesting the action.
Public Advocate USA president Eugene Delgaudio says his group “smelled a rat” and now has poured over 424 pages of official government records obtained via Freedom of Information Act requests (see summary here).
“That gigantic avalanche that the president made reference to, and [that] he’s talked about probably hundreds of times since then, turns out to be four – count them – four confused individuals and their parents and a couple of special-interest memos,” Delgaudio explains.
So was the president just misinformed when he referred to a “chorus” – or was something else afoot?
“Well, I think the president was obfuscating and he was lying,” responds Delgaudio. “[He was] misrepresenting a handful of people because there were no public members; there was no public outcry.”
Public Advocate’s research found several thousand letters from people who were objecting to the new policy, which Delgaudio refers to as “a lawless transgendered bathroom decree.” The group says if there was a “growing chorus” of any type, that was it: those who opposed the move.
That’s the world we live in today. Tiny but favored minorities get powerful government backing and praised to the skies by the media industrial complex, while millions scandalized and horrified by these instances of naked favoritism are not just told to shut up, but their entire existence is denied. This nation has become so Orwellian in its replacement of truth with lie at an official level that it is sickening. I stand here dumbfounded almost every day that the country I grew up in 30-40 years ago has fallen so far, so fast. I can’t imagine the cognitive dissonance that must exist for those older than me, like my parents, who grew up in the 40s and 50s. It’s not just a different country or planet, it must feel like some sicko alien universe.
Where we seem inexorably headed:
