There’s just no end with these people. Everything must be bent to serve the agenda or narrative, no matter how preposterous, no matter how blasphemous. There is no limit to the depths to which they will stoop in order to justify their depraved views and endless diabolical narcissism. Amazingly, these are the people who are utterly convinced they are the “good guys,” and we, who observe the moral creed that build Western civilization, the bad.
So, with total inevitability, we are now treated to screeds (safe link) arguing that the Christ is “transgender,” so look how wrong you are with your outdated morality and your hate-filled bigotry, Christofascist. Even more inevitably, the author of this demonic bile is a professor of “theological ethics” at the, ahem, Catholic university of Villanova:
Since Jesus had no human biological father, and since God, his heavenly Father, lacks a body, then Jesus was a man who likely had no Y chromosome. Would this not make Jesus more like a transgender person than a cis-gender one? We could grant Jesus a Y chromosome, but then we would have to assign his virgin mother Mary one as well. Either way, the miracle of sex-less conception suggests that Jesus can qualify as a “real man” only if Mary qualifies as something less than a “real woman.” (And I hope you can tell I that I am using quotation marks in order to signal extreme sarcasm).
I think the professor needs to go back to class. As if we needed another damning indictment of the Catholic colleges in this country. Wait till you see how Milo Yiannopolous was treated at “Catholic” DePaul yesterday.
As writer David French at NRO notes, this is probably less a serious effort to advocate some ludicrously insupportable new claim, than it is a part of that favorite left-wing pastime of virtue signalling and insulting the faithful:
None of this is intellectually or theologically serious, of course. It’s trolling for the sophisticated and deception for the simple. For elitist readers, it’s the kind of “ha ha look what we can do to Christian teachings” piece they love to share amongst themselves as “proof” that you can make any kind of argument from the Bible. For the vulnerable, it’s a quick Google search away from basic assurance that Christ is cool with their transition. [In other words, it’s all about serving the agenda, which is really about giving leftists their “sacred” good feelz, no matter how many have to get hurt in the process]
Oh, and it’s also blasphemous. But no big deal – it’s not like the authors were arguing that Mohammed was transgender. That would be disrespectful. Everyone knows that Mohammed was a revered religious figure, and it’s just wrong to hurt or anger his followers.
Great point. We can be assured this author would never DARE to insult the leader of a great religion like islam. But all progressives know, Christianity is not a great religion, it’s the deadly enemy of their substitute religion, leftism. And it must be destroyed at all costs. That has been the objective of leftism since its inception, and I continue to maintain that leftists will happily don the hijab and see their daughters (the few they allow to be born) in harems when the time comes.
Another blithering idiot is trying to claim that Eve was a trans woman, because she was born from Adam’s side, and thus must have had a Y chromosome. As if the Lord and Creator of the universe could not – and does not – raise up new life from dust. Can you imagine the insufferable pride that causes a person to limit God’s power to the present, inherently faulty state of human knowledge? Preposterous doesn’t begin to describe it. Only diabolical disorientation could result in such willful blindness and catastrophic illogic.
These are endlessly wicked, sick, and hate-filled people. The joy they experience in blaspheming Christ and constantly attacking His religion is palpable in their works. There’s a term for that – the reprobate sense. It is a terrible, terrible place to be (I’ve been there), a place where right and wrong are literally inverted, where lies become truth and Truth a lie. It is a sign of demonic oppression and it is mind-blowing that Catholic universities would employ individuals who give such obvious signs of hatred for God and His Church.
Mind-blowing, that is, if one operates from the assumption that those charged with overseeing Catholic universities – the bishops – possess the Faith themselves. An assumption that is all but inoperable in these dark days.

Typical of the Obama administration, a highly controversial, unconstitutional, and heavy handed administrative action, counter to all law and decency, has been released on a Friday (actually shortly before midnight Thursday), the slowest news day of the week. The hope being that, by the time Monday rolls around, the 24 hour news cycle will have moved on, or outrage over this shocking departure from the former “checks and balances” of American government can be dismissed as “old news.”
Obama has had the Department of Education, which Ronald Reagan sadly failed in closing, issue a directive to all public schools in the nation that they had better accommodate the mental illness of an aggrieved few, permitting boys to use girls restrooms and vice versa, or face the heavy hand of federal persecution. Schools that fail to comply could not only lose federal funding, but also be the target of expensive lawsuits from the federal government and aggrieved students.
I say again, sending kids to public school by choice (and not serious circumstance) now amounts to such a dereliction of parental duty it in all likelihood rises to the level of sin:
The Department of Education will instruct every public school in America to provide “suitable” bathroom and locker room facilities to match transgender students “chosen gender identity.”…….
……..The directive comes from two top administration officials: Catherine E. Lhamon, the assistant secretary of education for civil rights, and Vanita Gupta, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. It will put state and local officials and higher-education institutions on notice that they risk losing federal education aid if they limit students to areas or teams based on their gender assigned at birth. [Look on the upside! A lot of girls basketball teams are going to win state championships with 6′ 8″ bearded centers! How many “women’s” basketball, soccer, etc., teams at the collegiate level will not soon be stocked with men? So, in effect, the Obama administration is citing Title IX to UNDO exactly what Title IX was supposed to fix (even though it was fatally flawed from the outset)]
The action comes just days after the Justice Department and the state of North Carolina filed dueling lawsuits over a new law requiring individuals in that state to use bathrooms based on their birth gender.
Citing Title IX, which prohibits sexual discrimination at educational institutions that receive federal funding, the two officials warn that the obligation “to ensure nondiscrimination on the basis of sex requires schools to provide transgender students equal access to educational programs and activities even in circumstances in which other students, parents, or community members raise objections or concerns.
They also add that your considered objections and deeply held beliefs don’t move them a bit, you bible-humping Christofascists.
Greg Abbot has announced he will fight this latest, lawless, and egregious move by the Obama administration to crush federalism and rule by executive fiat. How many lefties claim Richard Nixon was going to crown himself king and destroy the American system of governance, for acts that were not even 1/10th as illegal/unconstitutional as Obama’s? Oh well……leftists always lie, leftists always project.
Regardless of how this gets worked out in the courts, every parent in America will wake up this morning having to deal with an issue they probably never thought they’d have to face several years ago. Parents now have to decide how they will deal with the reality that their child will not enjoy a basic level of privacy when they use a restroom or locker room when they go to school. Will this bring about a rise in private school attendance? Will it inspire more parents to home school their children? [By all rights, it should. I will not be surprised at all should Obama move against homeschooling before he leaves office, either.] Will states flirt with the idea of refusing federal education funds? [I think an honest reckoning might find that the costs imposed by the feds exceed the benefit received in tax monies back. Because that’s all it is, the feds don’t “give” anyone anything, they simply send a bit of the money taken in taxes back. Between Common Core, sodomite-“rights,” transgender activism, and all manner of progressive agitation, opting out seems an increasingly attractive option.]
Either way, if anyone wondered what President Obama meant when he promised to “fundamentally transform the United States of America,” now they know.
Indeed. And he is far from done. He’s going to go absolutely nuts this year. There is nothing to hold him back.

You know the old saw some people will say: “I’m okay with homosexuality, so long as they don’t make it mandatory?” Yeah, about that. The media elites driving the “gender is a construct” revolution in Western society have spoken, and they have decided it is bad, very bad, for males to reject men pretending to be women on the basis of their being, uh…..not women. That is to say, the fantasy play we are all to be forced to enact will extend into the most intimate areas, making one a bigot if one decides simply slapping on some makeup and shaving the legs isn’t enough to make one a woman:
Transgender teens Claire, Devon, Arin and Katie have set out to expose the harsh reality of modern, teen relationships. [Do notice, the “harsh” reality revolves entirely around the disastrous choices these men have made]
Appearing in a new BBC Three documentary, Young, Trans and Looking for Love, they let viewers see a glimpse of their lives as they struggle to find love. [Not a whiff of indoctrination here]
The doc shows the moment Claire, from Virginia, meets a guy that she likes, only to be rejected by him as soon as he finds out she was born a boy….. [#$@%^&!! What do you expect! This is infinite solipsism. Trans-boy gets to be picky about who HE chooses, but it is so wrong for others to have criteria in their dating (which is very disordered, anyway). Does trans-boy go after girls? No. But this creature expects men to shuck all their preferences and fundamental inclinations and go along with her mental illness-inspired fantasy reality?]
…….She says: “In a lot of ways, I don’t like telling a guy. Once I tell him all respect goes out of the window. [I’ve mentioned I’ve had some interaction with trannies. I deliberately use the term they find offensive. One of my biggest complaints about them is you will never meet a group of more offensively narcissistic individuals in your life. Brittle, unstable, and pathologically narcissistic, which we see here, this individual deciding it no problem to found a relationship on a lie.]
“Straight guys just can’t get over you having the male parts. [I simply don’t know what to say. But you can see the depths to which we will be forced to comply with the deranged fantasies of desperately sick individuals]
“Once I’ve had or get the surgery, I think it will change a lot for me because right now if I meet a straight guy and he doesn’t know – we can’t get physical if I don’t tell him. [So Mr. Infinite Solipsism decides it best to found all future relationships on a lie. Like the fact that he is a male, and always will be, no matter how many people cooperate in his fantasies.]
“And then if he finds out, things just get so complicated, I can’t even begin to explain.” [Gee, you mean the fact that you’re a man who’s had all kinds of unnecessary surgeries and dangerous chemical treatments to appear more like a woman? Basically, your entire existence is a lie, you are (or will become) incapable of reproducing, you will always, no matter what, have a Y chromosome and will be biologically male? Yeah, just a few “complications.”]
There are some heart-breaking pics at the original story, which I did not link to. Fairly safe link above. I cannot imagine what trauma caused normal, healthy-looking little boys to so despise themselves they seek to obliterate their God-given existence. Three almost certain factors: poor father image/absence of male role model, the constant cultural attacks on manhood and masculinity, and chronic self-abuse. Self-abuse and porn use drastically alter the brain, leading to all manner of perversions of thought and being. Note that something like 80% of so-called transgenders are male.
It will be mandatory, at some point. It is not at all preposterous to claim that at some point in the relative near future, it will be considered a hate crime to reject same-sex advances. Look at how far we’ve fallen just in the last 10-20 years alone. But then again, sometimes, dramatic turn arounds do occur. Who would have predicted the fall of the Soviet Union in 1984? And yet 5 years later, it was gone.

I’ve long said that the Left ultimately desires to make children legally available to the sexual predations of adults. So you can look at the ongoing “transgender” bathroom wars as just part of an overarching process. As in, this isn’t so much a bug, as it is a feature.
In one of an increasing number of occurrences, a female (in this case, a child) using a Target dressing room in Frisco was victimized by a male who gained access to the dressing room through Target’s sick and misguided policy making restrooms and dressing rooms open to those of either sex, depending on how they happen to feel that day:
Police are searching for a ‘peeping tom’ who used his cell phone to record video of an underage girl inside a Frisco Target dressing room.
Investigators say the suspect put his cell phone over the wall of a female changing room and shot video of the girl.
The incident happened at the Target store on Preston Road Tuesday night around 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
The boy took off after the girl noticed the camera while changing clothes, according to police. She told her parent who told an employee. But by that time, the suspect was gone.
The got some pretty good screen caps of him, though:
There’s another where he is even more visibly messing with his junk. Poor lost desperate soul.
This dude will get caught, and all I can say is, the clink is no place for a pathetic creature like this. They’ll eat him alive.
It hasn’t even been two weeks since Target announced their new policy of rape-friendly restrooms and already there have been several incidents around the country. How many crimes will now needlessly happen, and how many police and other law enforcement resources needlessly devoted, as a result of this societal descent into insanity? Lord only knows. Lots.
Well, as if local Catholics needed a further reason to boycott Target. Now we know there are pervs assaulting women and little girls due to this demonic policy. How many have already gotten away with it? Perhaps a better question is, why would any parent take their child there?

……..or any other instance of the marital act, which is not accompanied by evidence that determines that one (almost certainly, the male) had “affirmative consent” to each increasing step of intimacy. That is to say, the militant lesbian feminist effort to have all heterosexual intercourse defined as rape – which they have declared to be the case for decades – is about to achieve fruition, thanks to a friendly administration and a world that has lost its mind:
Adults may soon find their sex lives regulated to the point where nearly every sexual encounter is defined as rape unless neither party reports the activity.
The American Law Institute will vote in May on whether to adopt a model penal code that would make “affirmative consent” the official position of the organization. Affirmative consent — or “yes means yes” — policies have already been adopted by many colleges and universities, and have been passed as law in California and New York.
A source within ALI has confirmed to the Washington Examiner that the model penal code on sexual assault that was discussed at last year’s meeting will be voted on at their annual meeting this coming May…….
……..Should the code be adopted, it will be the official position of ALI that sex assault laws should be updated, and the group’s influence may persuade federal and state legislatures to foist affirmative consent onto the general population.
The policies only apply at this time to college students, and require those students to engage in a question-and-answer session each time they engage in any kind of sexual activity. Those policies are already branding students as rapists due to the fact that the policies have been used to shift the burden of proof onto accused students. This means an accused student has to prove a crime didn’t occur rather than an accuser proving a crime did occur, as is the norm in civilized society. [You call a society that has murdered millions of inconvenient infants civilized? We haven’t been civilized in a hundred years or more]
Under affirmative consent policies, there is no way to actually prove such consent was obtained. [Unless one has a lawyer-written consent form with check boxes for each act engaged in. Or videotapes the entire encounter, which ought to lead to a field day for the porn sites, once those tapes inevitably find their way to the internet] Students are required under the policies to ask permission for each level of sexual activity. So a typical sexual encounter would cease to be a passionate act and instead become a contractual, question-and-answer session. From the moment any physical contact is about to be made, one person must begin asking for permission.
“May I touch you here?” “May I kiss you?” “May I kiss you here?” and the like would all be required questions under such policies……..
…….Besides turning every sexually active person in America into a rapist (and a rape victim) overnight, the affirmative consent policy would be a disaster in divorce court. Accusations of child abuse already fly in bitter divorces, and giving angry spouses a cudgel like this would do major damage (but would be a boon to divorce and trial attorneys, like many of the members of ALI).
Because that’s what this is really about, right? Lining the pockets of lawyers who apparently have no concern for the presumption of innocence, due process or commonsense.
I’ve argued for years that the Left has engaged in a largely silent, but very effective bargain, with an increasing swath of the populace. The bargain has been, to this point, essentially this: you give us power over every other aspect of your lives, and we’ll create a world where you can engage in your every sexual whim, no matter how perverse or harmful.
But now we see, as with everything else the Left promises, that was all a lie. Now that they have just about achieved their total control over the economy, academia, the schools, the media, the entertainment industry, the military, and just about everything else, they are yanking back at least some of the sexual license they promised. At least, that’s one way to read this exchange, which I believe was inevitable, given the competing demands of the leftist coalition.
Oh, they’re still totally in favor of complete license for the most extremely perverse members of their base, but those people don’t make up nearly enough numbers to achieve reliable political/electoral dominance. The bait and switch, then, is not being pulled on the sodomites or the mentally ill “transgenders,” but on the millions of “straight” people who have leaned hard left in order to garner more liberal divorce laws, freedom to fornicate, contraception, abortion, and all the rest. And don’t think those inducements have been incidental to the left-wing ascendance. I believe they have been central to it.
Eventually, they’ll come for the perverts as well, but they are presently too useful to the Left in their drive to destroy marriage and the family to act against them. So they’ll start by so encumbering marital relations as to make them at least fraught with dangers, if not impossible. This will put more pressure on failing marriages, lead to more men being imprisoned over dubious divorce claims, and strike ever harder at the father-led family. Win win, as they say.
Meh, these thoughts aren’t terribly cogent, but I’m out of time. Finally get to assist at Friday Mass, for the first time in almost a month. Have a blessed weekend.

A bit of juxtaposition. For the second time in three years, the city government of Oklahoma City, OK – a city long dominated by a narrow cohort of white evangelical protestants – is going to permit the ultimate blasphemy against the universal Church, a black mass, on city property. OKC’s mayor, council members, and staff steadfastly maintain this is simply a First Amendment matter, that since satanists have “free speech” under our Constitution and Supreme Court rulings to blaspheme God, the city simply has no choice but to rent city property to these satanists allowing them to do so. To block them, they said, would be to invite a lawsuit OKC would lose with 100% certainty.
Meanwhile, 200 miles to the south, the City of Dallas has blocked a repeat performance of the diabolically lewd “Exxxotica Expo” at the Dallas Convention Center. Amazingly, when the producers of the Expo sued on First Amendment grounds, the City of Dallas won, at least at the district court level (no word yet on whether the Expo producers plan to appeal), but I have it on good authority the judge’s decision was worded in such a way that makes appeal quite difficult.
I would note in passing that Dallas proper is probably close to 50% nominal Catholic, with perhaps 10% actually practicing the Faith to some dimly recognizable degree. OKC’s Catholic population is far lower, less than 10% in general terms and probably in low single digits when it comes to faithful practice. However, to describe Dallas as a Catholic city would be ludicrous. Dallas has its own white protestant cohort who tend to run things their own way, even as the city has become increasingly Hispanic and Catholic.
So, on the one hand, we have a city that has permitted (and, by happily renting city property, I would say encouraged) direct assaults on the Catholic Faith and the commission of the gravest, most offensive blasphemy imaginable (and not only that, but acts constantly associated with depravity of a criminal degree in the past); and on the other you have one that was not only willing to go to court to prevent a much lower level of evil (sins directly against God in His majesty being the gravest possible), they proceeded to win.
I had no idea there was a second black mass planned in Oklahoma City, and already approved by the City, for the Feast of the Assumption August 15 2016, until about an hour ago. Even before learning this blood-boiling fact, I had already decided that Oklahoma City was, at least in its elected leadership and bureaucracy, a virulently, despicably anti-Catholic town. This latest revelation only further confirms that fact, just as it confirms that the arguments I heard all last year from OKC officials in my extensive correspondence with them in the run up to the desecration of Our Lady were as false as they were self-serving. Individuals claim First Amendment protections all the time, for all manner of nefarious activities. Cities and other government bodies, for myriad reasons, choose to oppose those claims, legally, for numerous reasons. Those bodies tend to win about as many First Amendment-related lawsuits as they win. The idea that because someone said “religious freedom” meant the city had to positively cooperate in the commission of grave moral evil was always tenuous, at best. Recent events in Dallas have proven it is verifiably false.
Which gets me to the conclusion I have been forced to reach: OKC would only roll over for these satanists, again and again, and even positively cooperate with their atrocities, out of reasons of bias, bias against Catholics. Now one could argue that bias stems from mundane worldly motives (such as, there not being many politically involved Catholics in the area, Catholics not representing a big enough voting bloc to act in favor of), but those are unlikely. City elections frequently draw only a few thousand voters and aggravating even several hundred could have a huge impact on an election. Since it is obvious even in this day and age that Catholics far outnumber satanists, even in OKC, it seems odd that a city councilman or mayor would not go to bat in favor of even 1-2% or so of their constituents. They routinely act on behalf of far, far fewer than that.
I’ll add to that reasoning my personal experience. If you know where I live and where my farm is (and all my family from), you will realize I’ve been through Oklahoma City scores of times. At least 50. We used to stop there all the time. Since I’ve become a more convicted Catholic, I’ve had some interaction with the local populace. Bear in mind, this is the city that likes to pride itself as being the brass clasp on the buckle of the Bible belt. It is evangelical central, and often aggressively so. I’ve had some encounters with the locals on religious matters, a few of them quite nasty. I’ve never felt much warmth of Christian brotherhood form the locals.
So, yeah, it’s not a lock solid proof, but I’m personally convinced the reason OKC is allowing all this to happen without even lifting a finger of opposition, nor showing even the slightest solidarity (by, say, participating in some of the protests or things to that effect) with Catholics is due to a widespread and quite deep anti-Catholic bias. We’re also safe targets, unlike muslims or even Jews. The former might kill you, while the media would go nuts should somebody draw a swastika on a synagogue.
Therefore, I’m boycotting OKC. In fact, I’m boycotting everything from Paul’s Valley to Guthrie. I’ll never stop there again. I might try to avoid stopping in the entire state when I’m passing through. It’s easy enough for me to do.
Another response: sign the TFP petition. Over 100,000 sigs so far, TFP are gunning for 200,000 and I bet they make it. Apparently even 100,000 people scandalized and broken-hearted by this horrid blasphemy aren’t enough to move the rock-hard hearts of the Oklahoma City leadership. That’s some pretty intense anti-Catholicism right there. Rather what one would expect from people who made the likes of Robert Tilton and Oral Roberts filthy rich:
No different from Kenneth Copeland, whom Francis has received and feted several times. Francis finds this kind of devilish, money-loving chicanery just fine, but traditional Catholics, well, they’re the real sinners.

Quick Hits – Boycott Target, Perverts for Equality, the Millenial Divorce Paradox
Cleaning out the inbox, a few quick hits for this Thursday arvonoon. First up, Target has decided to let mentally unstable men into women’s rest rooms at all of their stores. Time for a boycott:
The American Family Association is calling for a boycott of Target after the retail giant said it would allow men to use the women’s restrooms and dressing rooms in their stores.
On its web site this week, Target announced, “[W]e welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity. …Everyone deserves to feel like they belong.”
This means a man can simply say he “feels like a woman today” and enter the women’s restroom…even if young girls or women are already in there. [This has occurred far too many times already]
Target’s policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims. And with Target publicly boasting that men can enter women’s bathrooms, where do you think predators are going to go?
Clearly, Target’s dangerous new policy poses a danger to wives and daughters. We think many customers will agree. And we think the average Target customer is willing to pledge to boycott Target stores until it makes protecting women and children a priority. Target should keep separate facilities for men and women, but for the trans community and for those who simply like using the bathroom alone, a single occupancy unisex bathroom option should be provided. [Why? This is precisely the problem. The longer we continue to reinforce these people’s grave mental problems and call them not just acceptable, but perfectly normal, the longer they will remain mired in a misery that will claim 30-40% of their lives through suicide, STD, or drug overdose. This is not charity, it is the cowardice masquerading as thoughtful concern.]
Sign the pledge to boycott Target now! Target should not allow men to enter the women’s restrooms and dressing rooms.
After you sign the pledge, contact Target and let them know you’ve signed the Pledge. Call Target Guest Relations at 1-800-440-0680.
Next up, it seems one of the major figures pushing for dramatically increasing the risk of rape of women and children through his opposition to North Carolina’s sensible public restroom policy is himself a convicted boy rapist:
In late 2015, the Washington State Human Rights Commission quietly put forward a new rule requiring all public establishments to grant locker room, shower, and bathroom access to any individual, at any time, regardless of that individual’s biological realities.
The rule, which also curbed concerned citizens’ legal ability to ask “unwelcome questions” of an individual if they felt uncomfortable, has since been attempted in various forms and fashions in cities and states across the country.
When the Charlotte, N.C. City Council passed their version of the open-facilities ordinance earlier this year, the Charlotte LGBT Chamber of Commerce led the charge to make it happen.
And leading the Charlotte LGBT Chamber of Commerce was convicted sex offender Chad Sevearance-Turner.
The Spartanburg Herald-Journal reported that Chad Sevearance-Turner had been a youth minister at a church in Gaffney, South Carolina. Sevearance-Turner was charged and convicted for “committing or attempting a lewd act upon a child under 16,” after taking advantage of a teenage church member while the child slept. [That’s what we’ve devolved to in this country – a moral climate where the perverse and sick dictate to the rest what is acceptable, and who are given the power by government to punish those who resist. Satan, and Vladimir Lenin, couldn’t be prouder.]
He recently resigned from the LGBT Chamber of Commerce after his record as a sex-offender surfaced.
Meanwhile, it seems millenials think divorce is bad, even though they are marrying less than any generation in American history. Pundits can comprehend the dichotomy, but it’s very clear to me:
Respondents were asked whether they agreed or disagreed with the statement that “Divorce is usually the best solution when a couple can’t seem to work out their marriage problems.” In 2002, about half of Americans disagreed. Within a decade, the share had risen to more than 60 percent. In the most recent data, younger Americans — a cohort with the lowest marriage rates on record, mind you — were especially likely to perceive divorce as an unacceptable response to marital strain.
Several hypotheses were floated to try to explain the seeming dichotomy between millenials “famous” liberalism, their low marriage rates, and their disdain for divorce.
It’s no mystery to me, and it has little to do with liberalism. Millenials are children of rampant divorce. That drives them to have a whole host of psychoses, ranging from fear of commitment (low marriage rates) to a tendency to low-rent promiscuity. But it also probably makes them find divorce abhorrent, as they have suffered its effects. That doesn’t mean they won’t divorce with abandon themselves, once they finally start getting married, if ever. Children raised in broken homes are far more likely to have unstable marriages and later divorce, for a whole host of reasons.
But hypothetically speaking, they know the devastation divorce causes children (i.e., themselves), and they have seen that many of the reasons adults offer to children to justify their divorce are hollow and self-serving. They rightly feel that there is really no justification for divorce in most cases. Too bad they are likely too emotionally scarred to have the wherewithal to put their generic belief into specific practice.

If you’ve been following the ongoing (and increasingly unhinged) leftist campaign against the state of North Carolina for having the audacity to say that men pretending to be women cannot legally use women’s restrooms, you know the SJWs (social justice warriors) have been displaying all their core characteristics to the max. Thus we have seen leftist agitators, many of them self-proclaimed feminists, jettisoning all their previous concern about protecting women from male depredation (all the while encouraging women to behave in ways that opened them up to same) and now demanding that all restrooms in the world be opened up to a tiny percentage of dreadfully mentally-ill individuals who believe they are somehow the “wrong sex.”
Since the vast majority of these trannies are males pretending to be female (and no matter how much you cut off or have added on, BOYS, you’ll never be rid of that pesky Y chromosome), what this effort has meant, in practice, is opening up women’s restrooms to mentally ill and/or predatory men. Not a very good combination. Of course, there have already been scores of incidents from around the country where this lunacy has already been enacted in law, of obviously predatory men assaulting women and even young girls in their most vulnerable moments, with the assaults ranging from actual rape to “mere” intimidation, groping, self-abuse, indecent exposure, illegal photography, etc.
Such is the insanity of our times, however, that when a state tries to protect 50+% of its citizenry from such a grave threat, the effort is labeled as being motivated by nothing but hate for transgenders – who make up perhaps 0.05 – 0.10% of the population (a few hundred thousand, at most) – and has become the latest poster child of the endless war by the sexually deranged left against everyone else.
All the more sickening, however, has been the key role corporations have played in the attempt to have this legislation overturned. Corporate pressure was the principle reason for the dramatic watering-down of similar legislation in Georgia, it might still work in North Carolina, though I am proud to see how much tar is still in those heels. To top it all is the stinking hypocrisy of these corporations, many of whom happily do business with the most thuggish, repressive regimes in the world, but who now publicly chastise and attempt to punish fellow Americans for holding beliefs different from their own (which beliefs just happened to have been shared by almost all those now doing the persecuting themselves as recently as a year or so ago):
Whether it’s Apple opening stores in Saudi Arabia or American Airlines looking to dominate the Cuban travel market, many of the companies that have threatened to cut business ties to North Carolina over its bathroom bill are eager to do business in countries with regimes far more repressive of gays (and everyone else).
PayPal’s international headquarters are located in Singapore, where sexual contact between males is punishable by up to two years in prison, and even littering can be punished by flogging. The company has a software development center in Chennai, India, where same-sex marriage is prohibited.
Matt Sharp, legal counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, said PayPal’s actions internationally speak louder than its words at home.
“They’ve got a political agenda that they’re trying to push in the U.S. But it definitely does not line up with what their actions are saying around the world in places like Malaysia and others,” Mr. Sharp said. [Why do corporations push an overwhelmingly leftist agenda? Because personnel is policy, and most corporations are staffed, to a nearly uniform degree, by highly trained but unthinking monkeys from the same far-left universities. The left managed to co-opt corporations during the 80s and 90s through the politically correct effort, and it is now paying huge dividends. Virtually all elites, be they corporate, academic, or government, adhere to the same left-wing social views. The only difference is that some of them want lower taxes than others, and so call themselves Republicans]
Apple is among the other major corporations that have taken to the pulpit to lecture North Carolina for its sins despite doing business with anti-gay foreign regimes. CEO Tim Cook was one of several high-profile tech CEOs who signed a letter to Republican Gov. Pat McCrory calling on him to repeal the legislation……..
…….But, as Mr. Sharp points out, that has not stopped Apple from opening stores in Saudi Arabia, where gay people are regularly executed in public and cross-dressing is also a criminal offense. Pro-gay and trans advocacy are illegal, as is every religion except Islam.
……..Corporate America is only as tolerant as it can afford to be without losing money. All this talk about “corporate values” is blather. If those “values” interfere with the company making money, the company will drop them.
Perhaps there is a lesson there for us few left who retain some degree of sanity. I know it gets exhausting to boycott this company or that because they are involved in immoral activities, if we boycotted every organization that is involved in some immoral activity we’d have to live in a cave, but there are leaders who can be chosen to make an example of, by refusing to do business with them because of their strident support for immorality. Like Apple.
But then, I haven’t been an Apple guy for a long time. I outgrew that after college. Not that Google is any better. I do sicken of Apple’s constant, reflexive, and hypocritical leftist agitating, however.
I pray to God people, especially women, could learn the object lesson of this latest shift in the great aggrieved class pyramid. 170 million odd American women have been demoted on this pyramid yet again, replaced on a higher step by 200,000 men who pretend to be women. Virtually every aggrieved gets demoted by the latest preferred group from time to time. And yet women, as a group, continue to lean left and endorse much of this cultural suicide pact called leftism. Present company excepted, of course.
The point being, it’s a fools game, and the benefits you think you are getting from being near the top today may not only evaporate tomorrow, but you may well be hoisted on your own social justice petard.
Well, eventually all this will come to an end, once islam overruns the remains of the comatose West. That is, barring some radical and completely unforeseeable change of heart.
Enjoy your time in the Camp of the Saints while it lasts.

I was interested to learn that the Harris County prosecutor who filed charges against David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) for, get this, using a fake ID (and pushed for the maximum felony charge carrying a 20 year sentence) has been very eager to try to get Daleiden to take a plea deal. The intent from the start on the prosecutor/Planned Barrenhood side seems to have been intimidation, the sending of a clear message that if you embarrass Planned Butcherhood you’ll have to contend with the full force of the law.
But the prosecution and Planned Parenthood seem to have missed a salient point. That may be exactly what Daleiden/CMP want. By going to trial, they can subpoena Planned Barrenhood’s internal records, and they can put PB officials on record, in a court of law, testifying as to their baby-butchering and parts-selling practices:
Harris County prosecutors offered David Daleiden a plea deal. He didn’t take it. Bravo.
You see, now that felony charges were brought against Daleiden for altering government records*, and a misdemeanor involving the purchase of human body parts, the death merchants have realized that it’s not a good idea to put the Center for Medical Progress investigator in front of a jury.
So they threw him a plea deal for a misdemeanor after Daleiden posted bail today. For his part, Daleiden stuck to his guns, asking prosecutors for an apology instead of a deal.
“I think we all know that every day that goes by that the Texas authorities do not prosecute Planned Parenthood for their illegal trade in baby parts, they are sending a message to the entire country,” Daleiden told supporters outside the courthouse. “The state of Texas right now is open for business in baby body parts.”
If Daleiden were to go to trial, the videos he made along with Sandra Merritt and the Center for Medical Progress exposing Planned Parenthood’s baby body parts operation would certainly enter into evidence. And they’d be found to be truthful. And Planned Parenthood officials would be subpoenaed to testify at the trial. And they’d be found to be lying.
And oh, BTW, about that prosecutor:
With her top campaign contributor representing a prominent abortion practitioner and a Planned Parenthood board member working in her office, the attorney for pro-lifer investigator Susan Merritt said it’s no wonder that Devon Anderson indicted the pro-life investigators as opposed to Planned Parenthood.
I’m shocked, shocked to find evidence of collusion – or at least strong bias – involving a supposedly Republican DA and a radical promoter of abortion. That’s never, ever happened before.
The response from the prosecutor and PB will likely now be to draw out the pre-trial proceedings for as long as possible, in the hope of exhausting CMP’s financial resources. It will be interesting to see how this develops. This case has several aspects. Planned Barrenhood and their allies in the Harris County prosecutor’s office obviously intended to persecute CMP for embarrassing them. Even if CMP escapes these charges, the left-wing media will forever paint them as “accused felons” in future. The goal is to destroy their credibility, and all it required was an accomplice to their baby-killing agenda in a prosecutor’s office. This kind of thing is happening more and more, and has caused many to fear that conservatives are now more or less defenseless before the progressive minions abusing their positions of power at all levels of government.
There’s another interesting point raised below: how long are we going to silently, meekly allow the powers that be to exercise that power in such a biased and plainly unjust manner:
I should also note that David Daleiden is apparently prepared to go to jail over this. If that bothers you – if you don’t like the fact that a jury could put a man in jail for twenty years because he used a fake ID in one of the few ways that society finds acceptable and even moral* – then, well, that’s why people do civil disobedience. REAL civil disobedience, not the petulant, look-at-me garbage that the Activist Left revels in.
Anyone know if there have been any protests outside the Harris County courthouse or DA’s office? I guess there were a a number of people there when he turned himself in. But how about some old school civil disobedience like the pro-life movement used in its early days? I am told that was found to be counterproductive? Or was it just uncomfortable?

So said the reformed “gay” and celibate Joseph Sciambra on his blog recently. He notes several dire statistics concerning men drawn to sodomize other men, which make clear that this lifestyle is far more dangerous to one’s health than living on top of a toxic waste dump (in this case, Love Canal) for years. Please note, this post deals with very explicit subject matter, children and those with delicate consciences should not read:
Condom use is declining among men who have sex with men. In a large survey of MSM in major urban areas, nearly two-thirds reported having condomless anal sex at least once during the past year, and a quarter said they had receptive anal intercourse without a condom the last time they had sex with a man. [It was only a matter of time.]
- 67% of HIV-positive men reported condomless anal sex with a male partner;
- 65% of HIV-negative men reported condomless anal sex with a male partner;
- when asked about their most recent sexual encounter, 26% of HIV-negative MSM and 20% of HIV-positive MSM reported only having had oral sex;
- of HIV-negative men aged 18-24, over 28% reported condomless receptive anal intercourse;………
- in comparison, the CDC estimates that there are 1,218,400 people in the US infected with HIV; that is approximately 0.37% of the total population; that means – in some “gay” communities, the HIV rates are nearly 95X higher than in the general population; at the infamous Love Canal toxic dump site in New York State the risk of cancer was only 1.7-2 times higher than in neighboring areas and birth defects were 3.4 times higher than in the rest of the country.
Other damning statistics from a different post:
The UK-based FS Magazine, a gay men’s health and life periodical, surveyed over 1000 “gay” men in Britain and discovered that:
- “41% are in, or have previously experienced, an open relationship.”
More findings – of those men in an “open” relationship:
- “93% strongly disagree that ‘open relationships are not real relationships.’”
- “31% believe relationships end up open because gay men can’t be monogamous. However 47% think that it’s quite possible to have an monogamous relationship but choose not to;”
- “Over two thirds of the men we surveyed who are currently in an open relationship said they don’t use condoms with their partner – although 64% say they always use condoms with casual partners. 55% have picked up an STI during their open relationship, with 70% believing they got that STI from a casual partner.”
I could not find the below on Sciambra’s site, but reader MJD sent me the following, which apparently came from it, regarding yesterday’s Super Bowl halftime show featuring the diabolical Beyonce:
“I attended a talk given by local exorcist Priest Fr. Gary Thomas last week in San Francisco – almost as an aside, he mentioned that Beyonce is involved with satanism and that her Superbowl half-time show (from 2013) was littered with demonic imagery; there was an audible gasp from the audience; 2 years ago I wrote about Beyonce’s collaboration with a child pornographer; Beyonce will be at the SB again this year; please do not watch the Superbowl, which is really an occult ceremony interrupted by a sporting event; BTW – Lady Gaga will offer up this country as a blood sacrifice to hell by singing the National Anthem…Enjoy the cultural decline.”
Not sure how he arrives at the Lady Gaga blood sacrifice thing, but who am I to
judge question? It’s not like I doubt it.
And yet we are now taught that this is perfectly normal, and even better than normal, a positive good we should all accept as wonderful and even strive to emulate as fundamentally better than we are now, or were raised to be. This is nothing but the acting out of the massive confirmation bias prevalent – one might say omnipresent – among the self-anointed sexular pagan elite. They desire the destruction of the family as an institution, as it is the primary obstacle to the complete reordering of society that they seek. It is nothing more than the same old reordering the communist/hard left has always sought, but they have found the ultimate means of bringing it about by attacking masculinity, fatherhood, the conception of self, and the family. Unfortunately, in spite of the obviousness of the gambit to those with eyes to see, they have been amazingly, spectacularly successful.
The cost to souls and society at large has been incalculable. Joseph Sciambra is just one case in point, there are millions more like him (including myself), who have bought the lies the sexular pagans have sold. We have been blessed, by the Grace of God, to reject those lies and strive to follow the narrow way of Jesus Christ. But we are the rare minority. Such a tragedy. An even greater tragedy is the rarity of leaders in the Church who are willing to confront this evil, to name it and shame it, as it were, and to lead souls away from its many seemingly attractive enticements.
