Update: Leftist fake Christian ghouls use Trayvon Martin death for their political agenda

I came across this picture and it reminded me of the post below.  He does look like Obama’s son!  And Obama looks (OK, thinks) like Kermit Gosnell’s twin.

This is such a perfect example of media bias.  They worked overtime with false teachers and other useful idiots to generate the St. Skittles meme.

The Trayvon Martin shooting is a tragedy.  What makes it even more sickening is that fakes like Chuck Currie are using it to fuel their politics-disguised-as-religion goals.  See Christians Honor Trayvon Martin With Hoodie Photos #TrayvonMartin #WeAreTheChristianLeft @United Church.  

Christian Left = oxymoron.  They deny Jesus’ divinity, his exclusivity, the authority of the Bible and so much more.  In other words, they aren’t Christians.  Normally I don’t poke fun at spelling errors because we can all make those, but Chuck didn’t even spell Christian correctly!

Chuck looks even more idiotic than usual in his hoodie stunt. Yeah, that’ll improve race relations . . . how?  What will this do to help stop [apparently] overly aggressive Hispanic community watchmen from shooting someone?

Chuck is wearing the moronic “,” symbol of the UCC, where they love to say “God is still speaking,” even though they ignored what He said the first time and are just using that as excuse to make up new things and blame it on God (i.e., pro-abortion, pro-“same-sex marriage,” etc.).

Keep in mind that Chuck the other moral freaks on the “Christian Left” are not only pro-legalized abortion but pro-taxpayer funded abortions.  If Trayvon Martin was in the womb today Chuck would want the government to take your money by threat of force to pay Trayvon’s mom to have him killed.  This would increase the rate of abortions in the black community to even higher than the current rate of 3x that of whites.  That’s the real racism.

Will the fakes like Chuck speak out against the New Black Panthers’ “Dead or alive” incentives to kill the Hispanic gunman?

Do Chuck & the other fakes speak out against black-on-black violence?

I haven’t noticed the fakes lamenting the black-on-white hate crime where a 13 year old boy was set on fire because he was white.

Why not?  Because they are hypocritical frauds and false teachers.

Do-Gooders Aim to Round Up Indians Escaped From Reservation — this is a great example of why less government is better.  The U.S. Gov’t has tried to help the American Indians more than any other group yet the efforts have been counterproductive — just like they are when they “help” other people.

The most destructive addiction to afflict American Indians isn’t alcohol; it’s government help, as John Stossel explains:

“The U.S. government has “helped” no group more than it has “helped” the American Indians. It stuns me when President Obama appears before Indian groups and says things like, “Few have been ignored by Washington for as long as Native Americans.”

Ignored? Are you kidding me? They should be so lucky. The government has made most Indian tribes wards of the state. Government manages their land, provides their health care, and pays for housing and child care. Twenty different departments and agencies have special “native American” programs. The result? Indians have the highest poverty rate, nearly 25 percent, and the lowest life expectancy of any group in America. Sixty-six percent are born to single mothers.”

When Indians escape the welfare reservation, they take advantage of the free market’s opportunities to succeed like other Americans.

. . .

The price of a ticket on the socialist gravy train is your wealth, your freedom, and the right to call yourself a man. Anyone who wishes Indians well should want them to rise above the status of domesticated animals on the Big Government farm.

Adam and Eve after the Pill: the devastating fallout of the sexual revolution — looks like a great summary that the Wintery Knight would enjoy.

She notes that so many refuse to believe anyone could dissent from hedonism. Likening this to Communism’s true believers, she says today’s apologists for domestic decline share what Jeane Kirkpatrick called “The Will to Disbelieve.” Those who promote promiscuity, pornography, and the preludes to pedophilia as harmless find themselves switching places with the religious extremists they once derided, reciting articles of faith as the evidence mounts that their God has failed.

. . .

The result of the spread of pornography is a nation bombarded with sexual imagery, of the most explicit and grotesque variety, yet increasingly “sexually barren” in terms of sex between married people. One telling anecdote occurs on page 51, about a joyless, intimacy-devoid marriage whose “tension over marital sex leads finally to an amicable solution: She has her chocolate, and he has his Internet pornography.” As a result, two Wharton School economists conducted a survey finding that female happiness has fallen throughout the industrialized world for the last 35 years – a period coterminous with their putative “liberation.” Eberstadt connects the dots between increasing male reliance on pornography, the market of women of all ages and descriptions readily available for no-strings-attached sex, the rise of the “man-child” mired in perpetual adolescence, and female dissatisfaction at the fraying family unit.

. . .

Two chapters explore what Friedrich Nietzsche called “the transvaluation of values” – specifically, that the moral opprobrium that fell upon pornography a generation ago now falls upon tobacco. No fashionable human being would consider lighting up in public, much less inducing a child to do so, yet many consider teen porn consumption harmless, if not instructive. Similarly, the overconsumption of food or indulgence in poor dietary choices have replaced a prior generation’s concern over rootless, meaningless sexual hookups. As Eberstadt points out, modern sexual ethics are worse than those envisioned by Nietzsche, the author of The Antichrist.

America’s Debt Situation Even Worse Than Europe’s — people should cringe when they see the administration putting all their marketing efforts into the “Buffet rule,” which they know will never pass and which would accomplish next to nothing even if it did.  We have a huge financial crisis looming and they are doing nothing.

America slit its wrist in 2008. In 2012, it will either bandage the wrist and call 911, or it will slit the other one and lie back in the tub.

Correcting 4 myths about the crusades — sadly, I don’t think history teachers will ever get this right and even if they did the myths are so ingrained that it still might not help.

  • Myth #1: The crusades represented an unprovoked attack by Western Christians on the Muslim world.
  • Myth #2: Western Christians went on crusade because their greed led them to plunder Muslims in order to get rich.
  • Myth #3: Crusaders were a cynical lot who did not really believe their own religious propaganda; rather, they had ulterior, materialistic motives.
  • Myth #4: The crusades taught Muslims to hate and attack Christians.

Uh, speaking of justice in the Trayvon case, wouldn’t that require arresting people who try to incite riots and threaten to murder people? See Conference Call Audio: New Black Panthers Call For Bloody Race War ‘Kill White Devil Crackers’ –April 9 ‘Day of Action’ For Trayvon

Common traits of kids who don’t leave the church — some excellent points about youth groups, but I must add that the Bible doesn’t mention youth groups.  They have great value if done right, but churches should emphasize the responsibility of parents to teach their kids.  Alas, too many parents are biblical ignorant and doing nothing about it.

The tragic superficiality of the gay lifestyle — I was surprised yet glad that this actually made it in the NY Times.  Hopefully some people will reconsider their views.

A fascinating and surprising story published in the New York Times, laying bare what many homosexual activists will never admit publicly. It reports the real life tragedy of a typical homosexual man who sees and lives life based on the superficiality of homosexuality. How you look, what you wear and your “positive” attitude about yourself as a homosexual was the false recipe he sold to countless other gay men, but somehow knew that it wasn’t the truth.

On Jan 1st, Bob Bergeron, a quintessentially positive gay man, committed suicide.  He left his friends, past sex partners and acquaintances wondering why. But they are blind to the real issue. The obsession with youth, beauty and sex is a killer. In a suicide note, he summed up the homosexual lifestyle in a single damning sentence:

“It’s a lie based on bad information.”, he wrote.

NHS bans woman from surgery because her carbon footprint is too big — Socialized health care sounds appealing, provided you don’t know history and can’t think through the logical consequences of it.

This is the problem with socialized medicine. You pay your money up front and then later on the government decides how much treatment you get. They have no reason to be nice to you – you already paid them. They don’t get paid more or less based on the quality of care they give you. You can’t get a refund on taxes paid. And where else can you go? It’s a single payer system.

I saw this on a poster: Socialized medicine may kill you, but at least it is free.  Unless you pay taxes, then it just kills you.

Obama supports women at Augusta National as party courts women’s vote — So the Panderer-in-Chief tries to get some easy publicity on this, then stumbles when asked the obvious question of whether his strong principles would have even the slightest impact on his behavior.

When later asked if Obama would play at a men-only club, Carney said the president had not specifically addressed that scenario during their conversation on the subject.

Chalk this up to the most powerful man in the world weighing in on an issue with the equivalent passion of clicking the “Like” button on Facebook.  In other words, meaningless hypocrisy.

Bonus question: How many women does Obama golf with?

The president himself, however, has a well-documented history of excluding women, especially on the golf course.

Obama played 23 rounds of golf between January and October of 2009 before inviting a single woman to his foursome, the New York Times reported. This was emblematic of broader concerns over the president’s preference for the company and advice of men:

“The technical foul over the all-male game has become a nagging concern for a White House that has battled an impression dating to the presidential campaign that Mr. Obama’s closest advisers form a boys’ club and that he is too frequently in the company of only men — not just when playing sports, but also when making big decisions.”

“Women are Obama’s base, and they don’t seem to have enough people who look like the base inside of their own inner circle,” former Clinton press secretary Dee Dee Myers told the Times.

In a 2011 article titled “The White House Boys’ Club: President Obama Has a Woman Problem,” TIME magazine’s Amy Sullivan detailed the president’s fondness for male-dominated enviroments.

Yeah, there’s a real war on women going on, just not from conservatives.

Will this be enough for the climate lobby?  Doubtful.  Too much money and power is at stake.

Is this finally proof we’re NOT causing global warming? The whole of the Earth heated up in medieval times without human CO2 emissions, says new study

  • Evidence was found in a rare mineral that records global temperatures
  • Warming was global and NOT limited to Europe
  • Throws doubt on orthodoxies around ‘global warming’

And please don’t be taken in by the “earth hour” silliness.

Earth Hour – it’s the best thing since sliced bread

Earth Hour is yet another way for the disconnected, self-absorbed masses to pretend they’re involved in an issue.

I have written previously on this issue (oddly, that was also a March 31st) and in that discussion observed that the likely cost to the environment to produce candles, t-shirts and all other manner of supporters’ paraphernalia was far in excess of the gains achieved by turning off a couple of light bulbs (but not the TV – how else will they know what everyone else is doing?).

Jimmy Carter’s new study Bible is a train wreck of bad theology.  See Glenn’s analysis here.  A sample, which includes the fallacious argument from silence:

Huffington Post:  A lot of people point to the Bible for reasons why gay people should not be in the church, or accepted in any way.

Carter:  Homosexuality was well known in the ancient world, well before Christ was born and Jesus never said a word about homosexuality. In all of his teachings about multiple things -– he never said that gay people should be condemned. I personally think it is very fine for gay people to be married in civil ceremonies.  … if a local Baptist church wants to accept gay members on an equal basis, which my church does by the way, then that is fine.
My comment:  Jesus also didn’t mention child abuse, pedophilia, wife beating, bestiality, etc, so I guess he was okay with those?  Christ, being God, had plenty so say about homosexuality in the O.T. and soundly condemned it.  (Notice the behavior is condemned rather than an “orientation.”).  While Christ did indeed address marriage, referring back to Adam and Eve as what marriage was, Carter sanctions same-sex unions, as does his church.

But I will give Jimmy credit for sort of challenging Democrats on abortion.

Trayvon Martin’s death is still a tragedy, and it is still tragic that the media ghouls and fake Christians are using his death to advance their agenda.  If Zimmerman broke the law he should be held accountable.

Quick questions: Does your media describe Zimmerman as an Hispanic Democratic?  Would they have forgotten to mention his party affiliation if it was Republican?  Do they mention his real school record, his Twitter account activity, show more recent pictures of him and show how the media has doctored his hoodie picture?  If so, you should branch out with your media consumption.

And judging without evidence sure worked well for the Duke Lacrosse players, eh?  Read Ann Coulter’s piece for a good perspective.

Have conservatives really lost their faith in science, as was recently reported?  Not at all.  We just exercise appropriate skepticism and discernment, especially in two sub-sets of the dozens of branches of science (Darwinism and global climate change).  And we do that with good reasons.  Those two are driven by power, money and materialistic philosophy instead of science .

Actually, almost no one loses their faith in science when it is evidence-based and useful. Who turns down cancer treatments that work?

Rather, people lose their faith in “anything can be true in our multiverse,” “apes think like humans,” “the aliens have just gotta be out there,” “a giant heat wave is engulfing the planet,” “random sorts can produce highly specialized information,” and “my theory explains the origin of life” because – quite honestly – this stuff is not science.

It’s too bad if only identified “conservatives” doubt all the dubious propositions out there. The rest of the crowd will catch up after a while, though. They can’t afford not to.

Why does God let us suffer? — An excellent response to one of the most common objections to Christianity.  Side note: Atheists tend to use this as a trump card against us while ignoring that all worldviews must account for suffering.  Our explanation is far better than their’s, because they can never ground suffering with any meaning.

False Teachings About Hearing Audible Words From God Taking Even Deeper Root in Today’s Church — this is such an important topic, as this destructive false teaching seems to be growing.  I was talking with an inmate during a prison ministry visit and he has been troubled for years because he thought he “heard” (not audibly) God tell him that he would be out “soon.”  He has stayed in longer than expected, so that obviously didn’t happen.  He is still a believer but it has damaged his walk.

As I always say, if you want to hear from God, read the Bible.  If you want to hear from God audibly, then read the Bible out loud.  If God speaks to you it will be unmistakable.  How can I know that?  Because every example in the Bible shows it that way!  The Bible quotes God roughly 3,000 times, and not once do the writers say they kinda sorta thought God might have told them something.

This topic is a good excuse to post this again:

Christopher Columbus? Once upon a time, your average well-informed high-schooler, never mind the smartest president in history, understood that Columbus was laughed at not because everyone believed the world was round: Educated Europeans of his day accepted the earth was spherical and had since Aristotle’s time. They laughed because they thought he was taking the long way round to the East Indies. Which he was.

So let’s see. The president sneers at the ignorance of 15th century Spaniards, when in fact he is the one entirely ignorant of them.

Another reason to like Santorum: The obligatory “Santorum ready to go after Internet porn as president” post.  There are many things Obama could be doing, but won’t.

America is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography. A wealth of research is now available demonstrating that pornography causes profound brain changes in both children and adults, resulting in widespread negative consequences. Addiction to pornography is now common for adults and even for some children. The average age of first exposure to hard-core, Internet pornography is now 11. Pornography is toxic to marriages and relationships. It contributes to misogyny and violence against women. It is a contributing factor to prostitution and sex trafficking…

Jimmy Carter keeps embarrassing himself.  The latest is his use of the fallacious “Jesus never said anything about homosexuality” sound bite.  I used to want to like Jimmy for his Habitat work (even though he was a horrific President).  But alas, he keeps opening his mouth with his terrible theology.
