Media consistency: You’re doin’ it wrong!

But what’s new?  When the Tea Party rallies allegedly didn’t have just the right mix of diversity then the charge from the liberal media was racism.  And if you like Tea Partier Herman Cain then you are extra-racist because you are obviously just voting for him to cover up your regular racism.

Yet the Occupy protesters are having the same lack of diversity. Does the media assume it is racism?  Of course not.  They rationalize it away in the most creative ways.  See Occupy protesters eye diversity as movement grows.

The outcry against the nation’s financial institutions that has swept the country in recent weeks has crossed many boundaries, including class, gender and age. But a stubborn hurdle in many cities has been a lack of racial inclusion, something noted by organizers and participants alike.

“We, the 99 percent, have to be reaching out to the cross section of the communities that we live in,” said Tim Franzen, one of the organizers of the Occupy Atlanta movement. “If you come down to the park and spend a day I think you might have a hard time saying this is an all-white movement. We are reaching out, but we’ve got some bridges to build.”

The absence of diversity is particularly notable given that some of the larger issues surrounding the Occupy movement — including the economy, foreclosures and unemployment — are disproportionately affecting people of color. And the legacy of activism present in some minority communities seems a natural segue for such a cause, which has been linked to the strategies of the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s.

African-Americans are more inclined to rally around social justice than financial literacy causes, said John Hope Bryant, founder and chief executive officer of Operation HOPE, a non-profit organization that educates underserved and low-income Americans about personal financial responsibility.

Got that?  The alleged lack of Tea Party diversity (ignoring, again, the rise of Herman Cain) was immediately and emphatically attributed to racism, yet the admitted lack of Occupy diversity is because of a lack of concern over financial literacy (Is that guy saying that blacks aren’t financially literate?!) — even when they admit that blacks are disproportionately affected by what they are protesting.

That’s radical bias, even by the mainstream media’s standards.

Mmmmm . . (Affirmative Action) Bake Sale

Affirmative action is like nepotism: You end up with more unqualified people, and the qualified employees have to live 24 x 7 x 365 with people — including themselves — wondering if they are really there on their merits.  I feel sorry for the qualified minorities hired under Affirmative Action programs.  They can’t just enjoy what they do, they have live with everyone wondering if they really deserved the job.

Then there is the injustice to the more qualified candidates that don’t get hired.  And the customers and citizens subjected to substandard service or even unsafe conditions (in the cases of emergency responders).  Everyone loses.  Affirmative Action may have had a benefit at a point in time, but it has long outlived its usefulness.

In a free market, the bigots will lose.  You want to be stupid and not hire great employees just because they are black, or female, or whatever?  Great!  I’ll hire them and kick your company’s butt because I’ll have the best and brightest on my side.  Just look at the history of how college football became integrated.  The more schools like Alabama got whipped by teams with great black players, the less racist their recruiting practices got.  Go figure. And the athletes didn’t have to wonder if they were selected on their merits.  Blacks compete very well in athletics and entertainment, two of the most brutally competitive fields.  Don’t insult them and other minorities by saying they can’t compete in education and business.

See Berkeley College Republicans hold affirmative action bake sale.

A controversy over cupcakes is heating up at UC Berkeley in California, where campus Republicans are planning to hold an affirmative action bake sale on Tuesday.

At the sale, white men will be charged $2 for a baked good, Asians will pay $1.50, Latinos $1, African-Americans 75 cents and 25 cents for Native Americans, KGO-TV reported.

Women will get a 25 cent discount.

“The pricing structure is there to bring attention, to cause people to get a little upset,” Campus Republican president Shawn Lewis told the TV station. “But it’s really there to cause people to think more critically about what this kind of policy would do in university admissions.”

The Campus Democrats immediately slammed the sale, which Lewis said is meant to take a stand against an affirmative action-like bill for the University of California system that is awaiting Gov. Jerry Brown’s signature.

On Friday, the student newspaper reported that the student government could vote to defund the Republican group over the bake sale. A hearing is scheduled for Sunday on the fiery issue.

What a shocker: The majority Left can’t take the sting of satire so they have to use their power to oppress free speech.

False teacher says God is wrong. Again.

In Don’t Ask Don’t Tell: Time To End A Moral Disgrace, false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie goes beyond his usual blasphemy.

We can pray that marriage equality will be the next big step forward but it will take a lot of work to overcome the hateful and bigoted advocacy of political groups like Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council.

So typical of Chuck to just call people haters because he can’t argue on biblical or rational grounds.  The truth sounds like hate to those that hate the truth.  And I defy anyone to actually listen to Focus on the Family shows for a month then come convince me how hateful they are.

And of course, “marriage equality” is an empty sound bite designed to make you take his side.  But two men “marrying” will never be equal to a male / female couple.

Discrimination against people based on their sexual orientation is no better than discrimination against people based on the color of their skin.

That is another pathetic canard.  Skin color is morally neutral while sexual behavior is not.  Chuck makes a mockery of the struggles of the real civil rights movement.

It wasn’t that long ago that African-Americans were not allowed to serve with white soldiers and inter-racial marriage was outlawed.

That argument proves nothing.  Just because some things should be changed doesn’t mean all things should be changed.  Using his logic, we have considered incest and pedophilia to be wrong but inevitably Chuck and the UCC will look back and realize how “God is still speaking” and they’ll rationalize those behaviors (“born that way,” “equality,” “hate speech!,” “justice,” “reconciliation,” blah blah blah — can’t you just see it coming?).  Nothing would surprise me from a guy who takes his young daughters to gay pride parades.

Conservative Christians, sadly, sided with white supremacists during the battle for racial equality . . .

Not this conservative Christian.  And does he think that William Wilberforce was a theological liberal like himself?  And sadly, pro-aborts like Chuck are the ones who make the 3x ratio of black / white abortions possible and who want to make it higher via taxpayer-funded abortions (apparently in the UCC world God is still speaking about how pro-abortion Jesus is as well).

He even uses the UCC  (Unitarians Coveting your Cash) slogan that “God is still speaking” (as if they knew what He said to begin with) with the gay pride rainbow.

For those who do care what the real God says, it couldn’t be more clear:

  • 100% of the verses addressing homosexual behavior denounce it as sin in the clearest and strongest possible terms.
  • 100% of the verses referring to God’s ideal for marriage involve one man and one woman.
  • 100% of the verses referencing parenting involve moms and dads with unique roles (or at least a set of male and female parents guiding the children).
  • 0% of 31,173 Bible verses refer to homosexual behavior in a positive or even benign way or even hint at the acceptability of homosexual unions.

Even many in the pro-gay theology camp concede that point.  They just think the Bible isn’t the word of God.  Just like Chuck and the UCC.  We even have a term for people like them: Non-Christians.

Of course we should be loving and kind to gays and lesbians, just like we should to everyone else.  But if you really care about people you won’t encourage them in behavior that God says is wrong.  People like Chuck love themselves and the world, not gays.  Anytime you teach the opposite of what God says you are on the wrong side of the issue.

“Too many aborted”–abortion in the black community

I encourage you to visit Too Many Aborted to learn more about what abortion has done in the black community. As you may know, the rate of abortions for blacks is three times that of whites (and Hispanics are double that of whites). Of course, those ratios aren’t high enough for pro-aborts, as they want to have taxpayer-funded abortions so you can help increase them.

The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice is one of the most vile “religious” organizations in existence. While they can’t agree about who God is, they are certain that all religions support unrestricted abortion and that abortion is swell for blacks. How ghoulish.

If pro-lifers favored an issue that resulted in a dramatically higher mortality rate for blacks it would be on the news every day. Yet most people aren’t aware of this.

To state the obvious, abortions kill innocent human beings whether they are done to blacks or whites.

This isn’t science versus religion, by the way. It is a scientific fact that the unborn are unique, living human beings from conception. Theological liberals oppose science and religion when it comes to life.

(I found the RCRC link from race-baiting false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie, who is pro-legalized abortion and wants taxpayer-funded abortions but hypocritically mentions Jesus’ concern for the “least of these” in many of his posts.)

Racist plays race card

See From Nelson Rockefeller To Carl P. Paladino, where race-baiting false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie plays the race card.  Again.  He’s such a uniter and peacemaker!

I’ve already mentioned Paladino’s campaign pledge to send welfare recipients to jail (voluntarily, of course) to take “personal hygiene lessons.”

Yes, Chuck did mention that and he once again deliberately distorts it.  What would you expect from a false teaching, serial unrepentant liar?  If you read the whole article you’ll find that he didn’t propose putting them in jail, he propose using former jails.  Sounds like good asset utilization to me.  Using Chuck’s logic, if you housed them in a former church then the politician would be forcing them to go to church.  Once again Chuck is virtually indistinguishable from the worldly media.

And if these people are homeless — you know, the people Chuck pretends to care about when he isn’t running a failed church — wouldn’t it be great to give them a roof over their heads?  Chuck tips his hand again and shows that what he really wants to do is divide people and distort their views.  He has no interest in truth or really helping them.

Racists like Currie see race everywhere and reflexively play the race card while hypocritically pretending to want to unite people.  Of course, pro-abortion and pro-taxpayer-funded abortion Currie is the one advancing the policies that kill many blacks daily.  The ratio of abortions in the black community is 3x that of whites, which is outrageous.  But for Chuck it isn’t enough.  He wants taxpayer-funded abortions,which will make the ratio even higher.  Chuck’s organizations kill more blacks in a week than the KKK ever did, yet Chuck pulls out the KKK references even when race isn’t the topic.

Warning: Be sure to save your comments if you post at Chuck’s site.  He has a history of deleting comments that prove his ignorance, only to then lie about what the comments really said.
