[From "Brenton Tarrant was a Uniformed Partisan Fighting an Occupying Force"]

In Brenton Tarrant’s manifesto, he acknowledges that the act was technically terrorism, by the accepted definition of the term. But he argues that he is actually a partisan, fighting back against an occupying force.

Though the definitions of “terrorist” and “partisan” are such that there is a lot of overlap and one could probably be considered both at the same time (especially given that the definition of the former is broad and vague), the bottom line is that a terrorist is an illegitimate combatant and a partisan is a legitimate combatant. Tarrant made a concerted effort to ensure that he meets the definition of a partisan.

In the Q&A section, Tarrant writes:

Do you consider it a terrorist attack?

By the definition, then yes. It is a terrorist attack. But I believe it is a partisan action against an occupying force.


Further, he states plainly what his defense will be at trial:

If you survived, did you intend to go to trial?

Yes, and to plead not guilty. The attack was a partisan action against [an] occupying force, and I am a lawful, uniformed combatant.


A partisan is defined thusly:

A member of an armed group formed to fight secretly against an occupying force, in particular one operating in enemy-occupied Yugoslavia, Italy, and parts of eastern Europe in World War II.


Wikipedia has the historical context of the concept pre-WWII:

The initial concept of partisan warfare involved the use of troops raised from the local population in a war zone (or in some cases regular forces) who would operate behind enemy lines to disrupt communications, seize posts or villages as forward-operating bases, ambush convoys, impose war taxes or contributions, raid logistical stockpiles, and compel enemy forces to disperse and protect their base of operations.


Under international law, no distinction is made between a soldier and a partisan, and a partisan is considered a soldier so long as he meets four requirements:
• There is someone at the head of the organisation, who assumes liability
• They can be identified by a sign or mark, which is visible from far away
• They carry their weapons openly
• They adhere to the customs and laws of war, during their operation

Though Brenton was not a member of an organization, he assumed liability for his own actions. He also included a section in his manifesto about contacting the reborn Knights Templar, the group of Anders Breivik, and getting their blessing, which I suspect he included to fulfill the first requirement.

He wore a uniform with a visible military insignia.

[Black sun emblem on his clothes]

And he carried his weapons openly.

People would try to argue that he did not adhere to the customs and laws of war, which are defined by the Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907, because he attacked unarmed persons. However, the fact that the mosque he attacked had been caught recruiting terrorists means that it qualifies as a military base and could thus be considered a legitimate military target.

Unsurprisingly, Jewish partisans who fought against the Nazis on the Eastern Front have been celebrated as heroes, despite the fact that they were engaged in terroristic tactics that violated the laws and customs of war.

So the real world difference in definition between a terrorist and a partisan is thus:
• A partisan must be fighting in his own lands against a foreign force, whereas a terrorist is either fighting against his own people or the government of a foreign power
• In order to be considered a partisan instead of a terrorist, you have to win

The argument of the current Western globalist regime is that the Moslems of Christchurch are “New Zealanders” because they live there, and thus a white man fighting them is fighting against his own people. Because the governments of our countries are a completely autocratic, authoritarian force, they are not under any obligation for their assertions to make any sense.

Right now, it is looking as though the government of New Zealand is planning to do some kind of secret trial for Brenton Tarrant, who has said that he will be representing himself in court.

[...]

We shouldn’t apologize for Brenton Tarrant or the many more who will inevitably follow him with similar acts. Nor should we ever endorse them. However, because we have no ability to stop these events from happening, we have no choice but to deal with them, in the same way that the government and media cannot stop Moslem terrorist attacks but can only manage the public perception of them in the larger context of society.

When Jesus comes back
By Patsy Lambert - Contributing Columnist

When Jesus comes back, all evil will be destroyed. There will be no more war and no more fighting. A lot of people don't want to believe in the return of Jesus. Some don't even believe in Jesus.

It will be a sad day for all the ones that don't believe, when Jesus does return.

The first time He destroyed with water, the next time will be with fire.

"But the heaven and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men." 2 Peter 3:7.

For the believer there will be everlasting joy.

"Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion: and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away." Isaiah 51:11.

Until that day with anticipation we wait for the blessed appearing of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye, may be also." John 14:3.

Are you ready for His return? Because Jesus is coming back.

The Son of Fate

I am the Son of Fate. Fate had given birth to me on a stormy night, hoping that her Son would be victorious in everything he did. For a long while, everything was great. Until, one day, I found a horrible group of people that threatened my very well-being. And for what, you may ask? For being born, unto Fate, as a White, “Cis-Gendered” Male. Just because I’m white, I must collectively pay for the sins of my Fore-Fathers? And just because I’m a male, I must collectively pay for the heinous crimes done by my people?

I thought is was all fucking stupid. People hate me because I’m me? People want me to atone for other people’s sins because I have something in common with them? What happened to Justice?

Apparently, I’m to “check my privilege”. Because I am a man, I am not aloud to silently admire an admittedly attractive woman? Because I’m white, I should not speak of my upbringings and my achievements, because it’ll “oppress” and “trigger” these fucking douchebags?

Well I say NAY. I am proud of who I am. I am proud that I am me. I would not change a damned thing about me, even if it meant the world. I’m complacent with being white, and I’m proud to be a man. I am humbled by others for my prestigious academic achievements thus far, and I will continue to push forward to become Great. I will fight every obstacle that dare interfere with who I am and what I am to become: A Middle Class White Man.

aCultureWarrior:
Perverts have told sexually/gender confused children that they're born that way and that they can't change, in fact they're doing their best to pass laws from keeping loving parents from seeking psychological and spiritual help from trained professionals for their confused child. Being that the major icons of the LGBT movement were pedophiles or pederasts and/or openly supported pedophilia (Harry Hay, Frank Kameny, Harvey Milk, Terry Bean, Ed Murray, Peter Tatchell, etc. etc. etc.) for those of us who have studied your LGBT movement, we see what the final goal is: Keeping the perverse and ever so evil LGBT movement alive as well as the legalization of adult-child sex.

Ian:
I'm sure most homosexuals have spent time with a psychologist during their "confused" or emerging stages and were told eventually that there's nothing wrong with them, they are simply homosexual. It's not perverts telling them anything. It's professionals helping them accept themselves.
And no, there is no group, at least not one that is taken seriously, who wants to see children abused sexually. But now you've changed subjects because you're talking about pedophilia and not homosexuality - two totally different subjects. The list you give above are hardly luminaries in the field of homosexuality.

aCultureWarrior:
Since homosexual/pedophile Frank Kameny and his homosexual associates coerced the American Psychiatric Association into removing homosexuality from it's list of mental disorders, the vast majority of so-called "therapists" are homosexual affirming, i.e. they won't help their sexually confused clients find a way out of their homosexual 'deathstyle' (in some States, by law they can't).
As shown, practically all, if not all homosexual icons were/are pedophiles or promoted pedophilia, and the sexualization of children plays a major part of the homosexual agenda.
Adult-child sex is a huge part of the homosexual culture as well. You can't separate homosexuality and pedophilia because pedophilia in the vast majority of cases is what caused a person's homosexual desires. Let's not forget that according to your LGBT movement "You should be allowed to love who you love."
Oh and Ian, please don't think that I'm here to convince you of anything, I'm here to expose you so that others will take lawful actions against you and your movements evil ways.

Ian:
Homosexuality is homosexuality. Pedophilia is pedophilia. Find me a single gay rights organization pushing to have children sexually abused. You won't find any because there aren't any.

aCultureWarrior:
Atta boy Ian, play the queen of denial like you were taught from reading "After the Ball: How America Will Conquer its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90s". If you need me to show you what aspect of society the homosexual agenda HASN'T permeated, I won't be able to because they've even permeated something as sacred as the Church.
I recently posted in my WHMBR Part 5! thread about how there are pedophiles in the APA's, one of them being Dutch homosexual/pedophile Theo Sandfort. Let's not forget that the American Psychiatric Association somewhat recently wanted to remove pedophilia from it's list of mental disorders and only reneged when conservative watchdog groups exposed them.
'Gay pride parades'? Can you think of a better venue to indoctrinate children to accepting the ways of perverts?
Drag Queen story time: Children sit in a public library listening to homosexuals dressed up like women talking about all kinds of filth.
I could go on and on by talking about how homosexuals were responsible for legalizing child pornography is Sweden several years back, but I've made my point.
Play dumb all that you want Ian, but your movement has been exposed for the child indoctrinators/molesters that they are. BTW, have I mentioned that homosexual activists founded the North American Man Boy Love Association and the UK's Pedophile Information Exchange (P.I.E.)?
They likez em young don't they Ian?

Alabama judge allows teen to sue on behalf of aborted fetus

A teenager in Alabama is suing an abortion clinic for terminating the life of his unborn child against his wishes. On Tuesday, an Alabama county court recognized the aborted fetus, "Baby Roe," as a plaintiff in the lawsuit, making the case one of the first of its kind, his lawyer said.

Ryan Magers, 19, of Madison County, claims his girlfriend got a medicated abortion at the Alabama Women's Center for Reproductive Alternatives in Huntsville in February 2017 when she was six weeks pregnant, according to legal documents, even though he urged her not to terminate the pregnancy. Alabama recognizes the personhood of a fetus, so Magers is suing on behalf of the fetus and himself.

ABORTION SURVIVORS ON NEW LATE-TERM ABORTION BILLS: 'WHERE WERE MY RIGHTS IN THE WOMB?'

“Baby Roe’s innocent life was taken by the profiteering of the Alabama Women’s Center and while no court will be able to bring Baby Roe back to life, we will seek the fullest extent of justice on behalf of Baby Roe and Baby Roe’s father,” Attorney Brent Helms said in a statement. “The time is ripe for consistency in Alabama’s jurisprudence: either we fully acknowledge the personhood of the unborn or we cherry pick which innocents we protect and which ones we trash for profit.”

Why don't the gays get deported because they're the infestation to begin with

You're sick. If you said that to my face I'd kick your ass


The infestation of gays being deported instead of the homophobes makes it easier because america’s composed of 4.5% LGBT while being 60% homophobes meaning that it’s much faster and takes less effort to ship away the termites than the homophobes. Then again I’m not really expecting any of the left to be able to comprehend the numbers and logics I’m proposing here.

We're not an infestation why would you call us that


Because being gay was never supposed to be a thing; men were to be with women and anyone who had trouble with following those guidelines simply isn’t following the reason why we are here: to procreate. And also the reason why gay rights were even a thing was proposed by the same president who fucked up and put America into debt. And personally for me they just blow up the societal standards of masculinity and it disgusts me.

So I should be killed for being something I can't control?


Nono, moved to the island. And for me I believe that therapy works. But the thing about therapy is that the person should be willing to, well, change. Someone can’t go to therapy and come out with a different mindset if they come in stubborn and unwilling to change.

I fully support a Democrat who gets pregnant killing its baby. (Democrats won’t know if it’s a man or woman, because those scientific details are confusing to them). And regardless of the non-scientific moniker of race. In short, a Democrat baby, once born, is subject to fascist indoctrination, gender confusion, hatred, racism - in short, Democrats create monsters. What we should be focused on is not their desire to kill their own children, but keeping them away from everyone else’s. No Democrat should be allowed in education, law enforcement, government services, childcare, law enforcement, or a position of public trust. We see Democrat pedophiles and gays and transsexuals infiltrating the military, schools, even the Catholic Church - and the results are nauseating and criminal.

Quote# 142906

One of the biggest lies ever fabricated is the falsehood of Evolution. The only verifiable truth regarding evolution is that there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that evolution is true. It's all bogus hypotheses! I am so sick of hearing idiots talk about our cavemen ancestors. Are you that stupid? Really?

I recently heard famed Hollywood actor Will Smith narrate a stupid 2018 National Geographic series called, “ONE STRANGE ROCK.” Here's another episode of this trash. The only “strange rock” is Will Smith's dense head! They guy is a fool. I say that kindly, but with all Biblical authority. Psalms 8:3, “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained.” The Holy Bible says that God created the earth, moon and stars! In the National Geographic series Will Smith says that two asteroids collided, and that is how the earth and moon formed. These nutty pseudo-scientists actually believe that tiny asteroids, carrying water, repeatedly crashed into the earth for billions of years, and that is how the oceans, lakes and rivers formed. So why doesn't the moon have water? How did the earth and moon become a sphere? I can't believe I'm even trying to figure this insanity out! What lying deceivers!

I understand that there's a good chance Will Smith doesn't believe any of this, he's just getting paid well. Will can't be that retarded! Still, you couldn't pay me a million dollars to help propagate lies. Over my dead body! God knows that if Hollywood offered me a 60 second part in a film, and offered me $50,000,000 for the part, and all I had to do was take the Lord's name in vain one time, I WOULDN'T DO IT! I mean that! Evolution is a proven hoax! The burden of proof doesn't rest upon thinking people who reject the bogus claims of evolutionists, it rests upon the evolutionists themselves who are making these bizarre speculative claims! The truth is that there is no legitimate proof. Anything can help up as “proof” if there is no concrete evidence to support it.

A question for theists only, I have to point that out for the atheists who read like they do the Bible (joke), have you noticed how every so called ex-Christian or ex-Muslim Atheist, who comes to argue with us, comes from a highly emotional and immature state of mind? It's like atheists are easily triggered emotionally and such people are usually the mentally unstable, acting out their emotions in immature and inappropriate ways. It's an odd similarity I find amongst those who do not want to hear the truth and righteousness preached about in the Bible. Would you contribute this behaviour to demonic oppression? I kinda feel sorry for these people but at the same time, I don't. Not when they continually act out kind of like the troublesome child in the classroom.

On May 6, 2016, Promoli put her toddlers Jude and his twin brother Thomas, down for an afternoon nap in their home. Jude had a low-grade fever, but he was laughing and singing when he went down for his nap.

When his mother went to check on him two hours later, he was dead. Promoli said the next few weeks were "a living hell."

"Having to go in and plan a funeral and find the ability somehow to even take steps to walk into a funeral home, to make plans and decide whether to bury or cremate your child -- it was just all so horrifying," she said.

When an autopsy came back showing Jude had died of the flu, Promoli started her flu prevention campaign.

That's when the online attacks began.

Some anti-vaxers told her she'd murdered Jude and made up a story about the flu to cover up her crime. Others said vaccines had killed her son. Some called her the c-word.

The worst ones -- the ones that would sometimes make her cry -- were the posts that said she was advocating for flu shots so that other children would die from the shots and their parents would be miserable like she was.

"The first time it made me feel really sick because I couldn't fathom how anybody could even come up with such a terrible claim," Promoli said. "It caught me off guard in its cruelty. What kind of a person does this?"

Twisted logic that relies on scientific lies doesn't bother Promoli so much anymore. She's continued with her flu shot campaign, persuading Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to publicize his flu shot.

"I've had to grow some very thick skin," she said.

She said no matter how many nasty messages she's received -- and she says she's received hundreds -- she'll continue her campaign.

"The work that we're doing might mean that somebody else doesn't have to go plan a funeral for their toddler, and that is everything," she said.
Other mothers have also persevered despite attacks from anti-vaxers.

Serese Marotta lost her 5-year-old son, Joseph, to the flu in 2009, and is now chief operating officer of Families Fighting Flu, a group that encourages flu awareness and prevention, including vaccination.

In 2017, she posted a video on the eighth anniversary of her son's death to reinforce the importance of getting the flu vaccine.

"SLUT," one person commented. "PHARMA WHORE."

"May you rot in hell for all the damages you do!" a Facebook user wrote on another one of her posts.

She says a Facebook user in Australia sent her a death threat.

"She called me a lot of names I won't repeat and used the go-to conspiracy theories about government and big pharma, and I responded, 'I lost a child,' and questioned where she was coming from, and she continued to attack me," said Marotta, who lives in Syracuse, New York.

Catherine and Greg Hughes, an Australian couple who lost their 1-month old son, Riley, to whooping cough, have also received online abuse. Too young to be vaccinated, Riley relied on herd immunity -- the vaccinations of others -- to protect him.

But herd immunity didn't protect him, since the area where the Hughes family lived in Perth has some of the lowest vaccination rates in Australia.

"Riley's death was a very inconvenient truth for anti-vaccine activists," Catherine said. "The nasty messages started 24 hours after he died. They called us baby killers and said we would have the blood of other babies on our hands. We've been told to kill ourselves."

The couple started a vaccination campaign, Light for Riley.

Catherine said they still receive vile comments years after Riley's death.

"[F**k] you, Hughes family," one Facebook user wrote on the Light for Riley page.
"What a [f**king] evil whore you really are," another user wrote to them in a private Facebook message.

Another Facebook user was more succinct.

"Please die," the user wrote in a private message.

"A lot of them come from the position that they have children that were vaccine-injured," Catherine said. "But a fair chunk of them are just haters."

I love your blog and your sense of the link between sex and the divine . From reading your blog i wondered what your views on consensual incest might be ? Thanks .


The Bible thoroughly condemns it so I cannot be for it. But let’s define what incest is. It is sex, which is a penis ejaculating inside of a vagina, with a close family member. Oral, manual and other things are not sex, and so would not constitute incest. Hope that helps.

During his appearance on Bill Deagle’s “NutriMedical Report Show” yesterday, right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein declared that he wants “to make it harder for people to vote.”

Bernstein, who just last week said that is should be illegal for liberal “scum” to move to conservatives states, vehemently objected to the idea of giving people the day off from work in order to vote, insisting that such a move would only benefit “welfare sluts.”

“I’ll go on record saying it,” Bernstein proclaimed. “I want to make it harder for people to vote. That’s right, I said it, I’m proud of saying it.”

“I want to raise the voting age to 30. How’s that? Maybe even 35,” he continued. “I want to eliminate early voting, 100 percent. I want to get rid of it completely … I don’t want a voting day because if you have a voting day, you are going to have every single welfare slut and their babies out there giving all these different people in the streets more and more money to go out and vote and they’re just going to spend all day voting and they won’t work because they’ll say, ‘Well, it’s voting day.'”

“If it’s not that important to you and you can’t get there somehow on that day, then I don’t want you to be voting anyway,” Bernstein concluded. “I want less people voting in this country. Less, not more.”

Alex I would be careful what you wish for, you might just find in the 21st century the burality of killing babies in the womb might be seen as a bit stonage.

Do you think the State can compel you to give blood transfusions to a stranger, if it is the only way to keep that stranger alive?

Of course you don't. But you think it's OK for the State to compel a woman to do so.

The root of the anti-abortion movement is not about protecting babies (babies whom the Right is happy to throw into cages). The root is about denying women full and equal rights. Full stop. If you really cared about babies, you'd support a) free birth control, b) free pre-natal care, c) free child care and welfare for mothers. But you don't support any of those things, do you.


Wow, that is some twisted logic.

(Stan Olson)
What about the Father's rights? Of course in too many cases the Mother doesn't know who the Father is.

(Tom Genin)
The entire flaw in your logic of "choice" is that the pregnant woman didn't already excercise a number of choices to get to that point, whereas the theoretical blood donor in your scenario had no choice. Moreover, while I'm pro-life, I'm not for elimintinating the right to abortion, but the 20 week cap is reasonable.

Simply put, we as a whole are not evolved enough to value life if we'd ever consider abortion as an option for our personal benefit. That's not a knock on anyone who's made that difficult choice, it's pointing out that unless society as a whole is on the same page with that kind of care and support, you can't condemn the least capable to carry the burden of the aspirations of others.

The simplest test of our own perception is if you see a pregnant teen. The reality is that we don't separate the wonder and value of the creation of life from the act. If you look at that teen and think "how wonderful, another child" without thinking of all of the derogatory things that people may say at the same time, you're in the minority of humanity. That teen's decision on whether to bring the child to term is therefore not just a reflection of her own desires, but a reflection of society as a whole.

We can't legislate that kind of societal change to care for life irrespective of circumstance. Illegal abortions would certainly then happen, and that's not serving anyone or society. Far better to limit it to a reasonable period and aspire that we're all better about providing care for life in the future.

“I couldn’t reconcile the ‘God Hates Fags’ signs I saw with the idea of a God who loved me. I thought of Christians as intolerant, hateful, bigoted, and uneducated. It seemed impossible that my feelings about His people could ever change.” – Hope Harris
“Angry and unjust – that’s exactly how I described the God I was protesting at gay rights events years ago,” said Hope Harris. “I couldn’t reconcile the ‘God Hates Fags’ signs I saw with the idea of a God who loved me. I thought of Christians as intolerant, hateful, bigoted, and uneducated. It seemed impossible that my feelings about His people could ever change. “I’ve been screaming for acceptance since I was a young girl. It started when my mother was murdered in front of my eyes when I was four years old. As I moved through the foster care system, I endured both physical and sexual abuse. It seemed like God had truly abandoned me. I was raised by the same foster family I was placed with after my mother’s death.

“By the time I was in my mid-20s, I was an out loud and proud lesbian. I publicly advocated for gay rights and samesex marriage. But my world came to a screeching halt in 2006 when I was in a car wreck that almost took my life. Bedridden for a year-and-a-half, I had a lot of time for soul searching. There was a lot of friction in the relationship with my partner because I had been the workhorse of our home, and the accident took that away. I tried meditation, counseling, and other measures to deal with my emotional pain, with varying degrees of success.
“In 2008, a woman who I had a crush on invited me on a trip with her to East Texas. I remember her asking me what I most wanted in life, and I told her that I wanted peace of mind and heart. She shared the gospel with me, and I learned that Jesus gives peace that ‘the world cannot give.’ (John 14:27) I wanted the peace He had to offer, but I knew it would cost me a lot.

“On February 14, 2009, I trusted in the free gift of grace available to me through Jesus Christ. I was still in a relationship, and when I told her I had become a Christian, she asked me not to come home again. When I did return, I was shut out of both my house and bank account. I couch surfed for a while, trying to figure out what to do next. “I ended up moving to Longview, Texas – an unlikely place since I assumed Texans were politically incorrect people who hated lesbians. I sure didn’t want to go to church there, but the church secretary of a local congregation invited me. With fear and trembling I attended, and I liked it enough to eventually start volunteering at the church’s food pantry. That church turned out to be a safe place, and it immersed me into a community of Christians. Eventually, I even moved onto the church staff.

“I started coming to a discipleship ministry called Living Hope in Dallas. That’s where I met my friend, Sue Bohlin, a member at Watermark. She helped me develop the practice of reading God’s Word daily. Following Watermark’s Join the Journey Bible reading plan, I read through Paul’s letters in 2011. I had the choice to either reject the Bible or believe it was absolutely true. Through time in Scripture, God began addressing deeply-held mindsets I had regarding sexual and relational brokenness. The Lord helped me find my primary identity as His child, rather than as a lesbian.

“I read Mark 8:34-37, in The Message translation where Jesus says, ‘Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to saving yourself, your true self. What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you?’ Through God’s Word, I learned that self-sacrifice meant surrendering the right to my sexuality and who I thought I was and choosing to believe in God, who tells me who I really am.

“While my feelings and attractions have not changed, what has changed is that, rather than living to please myself, I live to please the Lord. God’s Word is the leading force in my life. For about three years, I’ve been in a community group of women who have locked arms with me as we follow Jesus. Of all the changes God has made, walking with others who love me and point me to Jesus has been the most significant. I have learned that God is faithful, trustworthy, and worthy of our surrender and obedience.

“When I share my story with skeptics, I want them to know that same-sex attraction is really a hunger problem. I thought that relationships with other women would meet my needs, but the only love that truly satisfies is found in Jesus, the bread of life. (John 6:35) On my own, I have no power to change. Because my deepest, longings and desires are met in Jesus, my heart has been transformed.”
“Calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, ‘Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me, and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to saving yourself, your true self. What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? What could you ever trade your soul for?’” (Mark 8:34–37, The Message)

Sermon 9: Modest Dressing

By Bro. Steven R.

1 Timothy 2:9 “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array”

Deuteronomy 22:5 “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.”

Let’s talk about an important issue. I witnessed a “Christian conference” at a nearby college campus where women were wearing daisy dukes and crop tops that exposed their bellies or low cut shirts that exposed their breasts! I also saw a man in a dress!! This was some Episcopalian or ELCA thing so I shouldn’t be surprised but they claim that they are doing this in the name of Christ! Have these liberal Hillary lovers ever even picked up their bibles? Do their pastors approve of this sultry dressing and cross dressing? If they do, these pastors will be judged even more severely in Hell if they are actively promoting this nonsense in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and leading these young adults to Hell!!!!!!!

What on earth are these people thinking? These men were wearing shorts as well and tank tops even though God hath commanded His people to dress modestly! No $500 watches, no $750 iPhone XR, no $300 Nintendo Switch, no $2,000 necklace, give your money to your local church instead of these multinational companies that exploit laborers in China because China is an atheist godless nation that has zero concern for their fellow man due to following the secular religion of Marxism! Hypocrites!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you ever see this mockery of Christ in a Baptist church, leave! Never go back! They don’t have the saltiness that Christ wants and saith in Matthew!!!! No more lukewarm “Christianity” that accepts sodomites and transsexuals and whores and drunkards and thieves and liars! It ends now! Don’t tolerate it any further! “Mainline Protestantism” and the “non-denominational” movement are shams meant to trick unwitting people to Hell! Get yourself into a good IFB today if you truly are a saved person believing upon the Lord Jesus Christ!!!!

Gayism is the promotion of gay politics and lifestyle, whether its at home or in the office.

No, there is no straightism, because there is no "straight". There is only a normal sexual default, whereas Gayism is the promotion of gay politics and lifestyle as popularly promoted on the internet as a social movement.

[in reply to an opinion article, "Brett Kavanaugh is an Entitled Narcissist in Opening Statement", about the Senate hearing where he was accused of molesting three women]

Kavanaugh was authentic in his opening speech. He is a human being with feelings -not a zombie - and rightly outraged over the unfathomable way he and his family have been egregiously treated. It’s exceedingly shameful, unconscionable and yes, evil, how he’s been maliciously slandered, and his life has been devastated.

(Dan Reed is the director of a "documentary" (a hit-piece really) called Leaving Neverland, which is about Michael Jackson and aims to smear him as a predator based on the word of people known for lying.)

(LA Times Question): "Both Robson and Safechuck previously testified in court that Jackson never abused them, and now they say they lied because they have since come to terms with what was done to them. Were you skeptical of their stories going into this?"

(Dan Reed): When Wade told me that he loved Michael, then everything suddenly crystallized and made sense. This is difficult to say, but he had a fulfilling sexual and emotional relationship at the age of 7 with a 30-year-old man who happened to be the King of Pop. And because he enjoyed it, he loved Michael, and the sex was pleasant. I’m sorry, that’s just the reality.

For those who understand the occult and their subversive agenda for a New World Order, you know that the theme of rebellion (represented by the number 13) is commonly used in the rock music industry, particularly heavy metal. From AC/DC's song “Shoot To Thrill,” to Ozzy Osbourne's song “ Suicide,” murder and death are promoted by the bands. AC/DC's song “She'll Be All Night Long,” has almost become the national anthem in America, which promotes the woeful sin of fornication (which has become prevalent across America). Another popular song beloved by Americans is AC/DC's blasphemous, “Highway To Hell.” Music doesn't make people sin, but it inspires sinful people to commit sin, stirring unholy passions. Adulterous men make adulterous movies that inspire adulterous people! The Devil knows just how to encourage people to sin! There are certain types of music that our flesh likes, but we ought not listen to. That is why I don't listen to Heavy Metal, even though it is appealing. Rock singers and band members have often been called “gods.” Men and women throw themselves at celebrities, surrendering their will and body to them, which is ungodly!

Rock singers are liars! I heard Angus and Malcolm Young from AC/DC explaining the meaning behind their album and song, “Highway To Hell.” They said that the song merely describes hard life on the road while touring. What a bunch of liars! They have to lie, to avoid more criticism than they already receive. AC/DC lies, claiming that it's just about the music, and not promoting Satan or Hell. If that be true, then how do they explain their next album in 1980, with hit songs like, “Hell's Bells” and “Back In Black”? The lyrics to Back In Black include phrases like, “If you're into evil you're a friend of mine!” In Hell's Bells Brian Johnson sings the sinful words, “I got my bell, I'm gonna take you to hell, I'm gonna get you, Satan get you!” If you are blind enough to think this is merely about hard times, for a rock band on the road while traveling from one city to the next, you're an idiot! The lyrics praise Satan, Hell and evil! I am tired of hearing wicked groups like Ozzy Osbourne, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Megadeth and other Satan-promoting bands, try to dismiss their Satanism with lame excuses. The entire rock music industry is saturated with occult symbols and Satanism, the god of this evil world whom they serve!

David Lee Roth is no hero, yet the ungodly modern newsmedia promote and honor these wicked celebrities, while sinfully tearing down godly preachers who uncompromisingly take a stand against sin in America! A preacher can make one mistake, and the world will condemn him for the rest of his life, and destroy his ministry; but an ungodly celebrity can sin thousands of times, and make as many mistakes as possible, and it is hardly noticed, if mentioned at all. This proves the Holy Bible to be true, confirming the Lord's teaching in John 15:19 that the world will love their own, but hate a born-again Christian, especially one who is living a godly life (2nd Timothy 3:12). When you are a Christian believer, the whole world is waiting for you to fall!

Q. If you can find some evidence for an alternative theory (to evolution), I'm all ears. Until then, you don't have a leg to stand on.

A. Ok, my theoruy is that God made it all. The evidence is that it takes intelligence to make complex, sophisticated and intelligent design. There are NO exceptions. That proves my theory of inteliigent design od all creation. You lose.

Q. So, who designed god? Who designed god's intelligence?

A. No God is not intelligent - He is all knowing. Big difference. There is no physical brain with intelligence to design.

This was a really good Testimony of God's unconditional love and faithfulness.
I too have been set free from the homosexual life style. I don't even have same sex attractions. It's a freeing feeling to not be harassed by that ugly, twisted spirit. I really Thank God everyday. I know who I am in HIM. HIS DAUGHTER.
