[From "God’s Fiery Wrath Strikes Sanctuary State Of California, Leftist Wine Country Faces Ruin"]

Maybe I’m being a bit too cruel over this, and maybe I shouldn’t gloat over an entire region being consumed by what seriously seems like an act of God, but…

You know what?

I’ve long ago put aside any altruism aside from that reserved for my immediate blood family, close friends, fellow members in the Movement, and those Whites seemingly good, wholesome, and totally undeserving of punishment.

To everyone else, especially if you are [url=]devoted to the causes[/url] that would see us all die in horrible ways, I have no sympathy and no tears if you find yourself surrounded by red-hot flames.

[...]

Could it be that I overreacted while writing this article, and did I by any chance wish too much destruction on the good people of California?

Well actually…

For a state that pushes prison for pronoun misuse, I don’t think agonizing combustion is too severe a punishment.

Man spreads HIV to over 2 dozen partners

It is the person's responsibility to ask and make sure their partner is healthy. A person with HIV does not have the obligation to reveal their medical history to someone.

This man should not go to jail.

Quote# 133003

Once upon a time, cartoons were about coyotes that blew themselves up with sticks of dynamite and cats that would always be outsmarted by mice. But we live in a much different time now, and cartoons, much like virtually everything else in American society, have been infected by the cancer that is progressivism.

The Magic School Bus is a cartoon from the mid-1990s about a class of students and their teacher who go on all sorts of crazy adventures – from exploring the Milky Way to navigating through the human body – in their shape-shifting school bus. Although the show officially ended in 1997, it has been shown for educational purposes in classrooms across the country for years thereafter. Now, the popular video streaming service Netflix has launched a reboot of the series called The Magic School Bus Rides Again, and as you probably could have guessed, it is not without its fair share of liberal indoctrination.

Episode 10 of the series reboot is called “The Tales Glaciers Tell,” and if you think that an episode with a title like that is completely free from political bias or indoctrination, then you are sadly mistaken. In it, the teacher takes her class to a glacier and informs them that man’s inventions are causing pollution that is destroying the planet, and unless we do something about it, Earth will continue spiraling into a slow, miserable death. As a solution, the students in the episode are instructed to ride their bikes instead of riding in cars and to decrease the amount of electricity they use on a daily basis.

It doesn’t stop there, however. Two episodes later in episode 12, which is titled “Monster Power,” the students become terrified when they learn that they might be eaten by a pollution monster unless they use clean energy. Because everybody knows that the first thing kids want to see when they sit down for Saturday morning cartoons is a pollution monster threatening to come after a bunch of school kids unless they adopt an environmentally-friendly lifestyle.

But The Magic School Bus isn’t the only kids show that is working relentlessly to brainwash young people with far left rhetoric. Earlier this year, Netflix launched a reboot of the popular 90s show Bill Nye the Science Guy called Bill Nye Saves the World. In the very first episode of the reboot, viewers are warned about the dangers of climate change, and that unless we take immediate action, cute and innocent pandas will die off. (Related: Bill Nye has been slammed by real scientists for blaming hurricanes on climate change.)

Of course, those who understand the left and the games that they play know that the messages conveyed in both The Magic School Bus reboot and the Bill Nye the Science Guy reboot are just scare tactics, but to young, unsuspecting children, the threat of manmade climate change is very scary and very real. They don’t have any experience in politics, they don’t know that there are people out there who will lie to them for political gain, and chances are they can’t even pronounce the word propaganda let alone understand what it is. (Related: Climate change science implodes as the IPCC climate models are found to be totally wrong.)

The sad truth is that the liberals know full well that young people are easy targets, and that with just a few political messages injected into TV shows and cartoons, they can create an entire generation of left leaning, tree hugging leftists. Aside from potentially boycotting programs like The Magic School Bus and Bill Nye the Science Guy, the only real solution to this relentless liberal indoctrination is for parents to step in and teach their children the truth. The future of our country is on the line, and it is our responsibility to make sure that our children grow up knowing the difference between fact and political fiction.

(As part of a discussion on the cause of homosexuality, and in response to another member who said, in reply to the posting of an article from a Christian publication which claimed a lesbian had been "cured" of homosexuality: "Christian publicans are first and foremost telling a Christian story. For whatever reason, Christians do not want to believe homosexuals are stuck with being who they are, would rather hold to the idea that they can be 'corrected'. Such a view does not benefit from science, which is secondary to faith for them. This pretty much disqualifies them from the start. I put in the effort only for stuff that at least shoots for objectivity.") (boldface mine)

It's more than absurd and arrogant for you to claim you know more than a former homosexual.

It's a FACT that there are thousands of former homosexuals. It's absurd for anyone to claim they are lying or can understand what they've overcome.

So, you reject the gay gene? What else would cause homosexuality other than environmental causes? Are you claiming homosexuality is hormonal?

If homosexuality was hormonal, it goes to follow there should be a hormonal cure. That's why homosexual activists are so opposed to that theory being the cause of homosexuality.

Incels face harassment, discrimination, and oppression than any other minority group in the world; not just in real life, but online as well. And what does society do about it? Absolutely nothing.

People are free to mock and bully Incels however and whenever they please without facing any kind of legal ramifications. Because of this we are consistently subjected to hate crimes on a daily basis thanks to our oppressors -- and unfortunately, we have no way of fighting back against them due to them beating us in sheer numbers. Unless of course, we plan a coordinated attack against them but that's something else entirely.

It is time for society to stand up for what is right and provide Incels with legal protection for the hate crimes performed against Incels, and class us as a protected class.

I put my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Let's take a look at what evolutionists put their faith in:

1) Evolutionists put their faith in a mysterious primordial swamp that produced life from non-life.

2) Evolutionists put their faith in the fact that fish can morph into amphibians...that amphibians can morph into reptiles..that retiles can morph into mammals...that apes can morph into humans.

3) Evolutionists put their faith in thousands of common ancestors that have never been found.

4) Evolutionists put their faith in beneficial random mutations which have never proven to be random.

5) Evolutionists put their faith in natural selection, which has never even been tested.

6) Evolutionists put their faith in flawed dating techniques.

7) Evolutionists put their faith in the hopes that humans are actually apes.

8) Evolutionists put their faith in the hopes that a monkey can morph into a human simply by hopping down from tree branches and walking out into wide open spaces.

9) Evolutionists put their faith that a giant explosion could produce order.

10) Evolutionists put their faith that DNA could self-organize from randomly arising chemicals.

Archbishop Timothy Dolan: Legalizing Gay Marriage Could Make "1984" Non-Fiction Reading

Archibishop Timothy Dolan blogged that “history, natural law, the Bible...the religions of the world, human experience, and just plan gumption tells us” marriage is between a man and a woman.

“The definition of marriage is hardwired into our human reason,” Dolan wrote. “To tamper with that definition, or to engage in some Orwellian social engineering about the nature and purpose of marriage, is perilous to all of us.”

[...]

“If big, intrusive government can re-define the most basic, accepted, revealed truth that marriage simply means one man+ one woman + (hopefully) children, in a loving family, then I’m afraid, Orwell’s works will no longer be on the fiction shelf.”

Dolan denied opposition to gay marriage is born out of hatred and discrimination -- even going so far as to say those who defend traditional marriage have been targets of harassment. He said the Church teaches against discrimination and hatred toward gays, specifying that homosexual acts, not individuals, are not in conformity “with God’s design.”

(Mad_manlet); It took me so long to realize, but chad = god.

Chads decide who reproduces with who. Chads decide the flow of humanity Chads decide who deserves happiness and who deserves the rope. Chads decide what technological,industrial,medical,social, and spacial advancements get made. Chads decide who lives or who dies.

Next time you see a 6' + male with hooded eyes, robust nose, square jaw, full lips, full framed , small hips, and a full head of hair, realize that this is the god all religions speak of. The omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient being who watches over all humans.

(justforlulzandkeks); All Chads today are descendants of the Seven Primordial Chads, progenitors of all genetically superior males, carrying superior bloodlines and the first men on earth, created by God himself to spread divinie seed and multiply the human race.

(OrangeFez2311): This is literally true. God, in almost all religions, is portrayed as a Chad: tall, muscular, thick and billowing hair, intense and predatory hunter eyes, strong jaw, large hands.

Today was the first day at the uni. I went to attend some class about climate change. The room was filled with cute nerdy girls. The sight was too much for my incel d*** to handle. Their quirky personalities, the glasses they wore, their perfect bodies just triggered me.

I'm one year older than the other people at the class so I feel like an old man. The other students are all Normies so I'm the creepy incel of the class. I don't know any of them and it's too late to meet anyone since all social connections are established in the first year.

Now, I have to attend the class and tolerate being in the same room with girls I won't have sex with. All of them are taken and I'm invisible to them anyway. It won't be an easy task but I have to master up some copefidence and do it. If I'm strong I will graduate in 4 months. Then, I can LDAR at home for 6 months with the excuse that no postgraduate program accepted me.

Tbh I don't want to do any postgraduate or work later on. There is no point in wageslaving as an incel. I have no dreams and ambitions. The only thing I care about is sex. Normies have gfs or families they have to work for and care about. I have noone and I have no intention of becoming a slave without the prospect of sex. Working 8 hours a day then coming home to sleep and then go to work again.

The cycle repeats evey day and it seems like a nightmare. I have to find a way to be NEET so that I can stay home all day, avoid the s** fuel that the outside world is and happily cope. It's the best I future I can achieve. If I'm going to be a alone at least I can do it with all the pleasures I can get. Weed, porn, alcochol, games, music and of course, no work.

You need to give up some things for the sake of Allah, and in sha Allah you will be rewarded for it. It's up to Allah who He guides to the Right Path. If you don't feel comfortable preaching Islam to them, you need to let go of these "friendships" and make friends with pious, believers. I am sorry if this sounds harsh but there are many sacrifices we have to make in this dunya, and in sha Allah we will be rewarded for each one in the Hereafter.

"O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Awliyaa’ (friends, protectors, helpers), they are but Awliyaa’ of each other. And if any amongst you takes them (as Awliyaa’), then surely, he is one of them. Verily, Allaah guides not those people who are the Zaalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers and unjust)" 5:51

It is clear what you should do even if it can be extremely difficult for you to do it. May Allah guide you and assist you.

Unless Muslims unite on Islam as in a single state with an imam following only Shariah and worshipping only Allah, then Muslims deserve to be disgraced and humiliated like Bani Israil. The problem of the Muslim countries is NOT culture- this is a symptom.

The problem is more fundamental: it's ideological. Muslims are intentionally obstructed from following and implementing Islam by the Tawaghit and their kufr regimes that rule on their behalf over us.

The OPer is from North Africa. All of thos nations function as satellites of Western powers. The absolute worst of them is Tunisia, then Morocco. They are led by secular nationalist regimes that have imposed kufr and corruption for decades without stopping ever since and behalf of their former colonial masters.

Muslims first end that that perpetuates kufr and fasad. Agreed. It is profoundly stupid, exhibiting self- hatred, bigotry, dishonesty, shallowness, ignorance, and worst of all, hypocricy.

You are being generous to the OPer. If someone wants to run away from his homeland to be with Americans and wave their flag, they justify by a post like the OP.

Quote# 133018

Acclaimed Scholar, Mystic, Gnostic and world-wide leader of the Ebionite Nazirene Restoration Movement, the soul of Allan Cronshaw spiritually came of age in his previous life as Jacob, whom we know as James, the person known historically as the Brother of Yeshua (Jesus). The author and visionary Philip K. Dick once wrote with respect to the original disciples of Jesus that: "Christ ...taught his followers how to enter the kingdom while still alive, where other mystery religions only bring about amnesis: knowledge of it at the 'other time' in 'the other realm,' not here. He causes it to come here, and is the living agency to the Sole Good God (i.e. the Logos)."

What Allan's Soul-Self learned in the first century, he put into practice over the almost ensuing 2000 years where he was sent back into this world to start numerous spiritual communities which served as a bedrock environment for other sincere seekers of Truth in TheWay. While the Church was hunting down and burning mystic visionaries such as Gordaino Bruno at the stake (see Spiritual Religion), the soul of Allan Cronshaw was working with other sincere seekers to guide them into the Light of TheWay.

By applying the principles and teachings that the historical man Jesus revealed to his closest disciples, the soul who is presently Allan was again able to tap into his higher Soul-Self which is a Being of Light -- and it is through this conscious spiritual interaction that enabled Allan to restore the original teachings associated with the historical man Jesus and TheWay. These important restored writings which contain much of the higher knowledge that was suppressed by the Church of Rome, is now explored throughout the writings which have come to be known as TheWay of the Nazirene.

(..)

According to Socrates and Plato, the most important forms of knowledge come not from formal instruction, but by a re-awakening of already existing dormant or latent knowledge that exists within our own mind and being. This is called anamnesis. Under the heading of Anamnesis (Philosophy), the Wikipedia states: It is the idea that humans possess knowledge from past incarnations and that learning consists of rediscovering that knowledge within us. The article then goes on to say: Socrates' response is to develop his theory of anamnesis.

He suggests that the soul is immortal, and repeatedly incarnated; knowledge is actually in the soul from eternity... What one perceives to be learning, then, is actually the recovery of what one has forgotten. (Once it has been brought back it is true belief, to be turned into genuine knowledge by understanding.) And thus Socrates (and Plato) sees himself, not as a teacher, but as a midwife, aiding with the birth of knowledge that was already there in the student.

Allan is very much proof of the above statements by Ouspensky, the Apostle Peter, the visionary Philip K. Dick, as well as Socrates and Plato. While Allan formally only has a high school education, he recently retired from Verizon as a corporate manager and software engineer. Allan has authored numerous articles which are read and known world-wide by seekers who search out the original teachings of Jesus -- teachings that enable the seeker to fulfill the adage to Know Thyself, and begin tapping into the Inner Source of Light that is our True Self. He has been a speaker at such estemed groups as The Conference On Human Consciousness And Human Evolution.

A person of a linear-mindset who equates wisdom and knowledge as being the product of a formal education, will very likely question the credentials of Allan Cronshaw who has never undergone the formal study of philosophy, theology or science. Yet, the linear-minded person seems to forget the very words of Einstein who reasoned: “The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.” Mystics have long warned mankind that the reality of this world of appearances is not at all what is seems to be through the perception of man's physical eyes and senses -- i.e., that there is a great deal more that man's senses and perception cannot detect or even imagine.

And this same enigma of the limits of man's physical senses and liner-based mindset was noted by Albert Einstein who concluded with respect to man's dilemma when he stated: "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift." To our own demise our culture has waged war on the Intuitive Gift that Einstein and other visionaries and mystics have portrayed as the answer to our self-imposed limitations of mind and spirituality

An important insight into the very essence, purpose and higher spiritual objectives of the original teachings of Jesus that came to be portrayed as TheWay, is contained in an article in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the heading, The History of Christian Mysticism, where it reads: “Although the essence of mysticism is the sense of contact with the transcendent, mysticism in the history of Christianity should not be understood merely in terms of special ecstatic experiences but as part of a religious process lived out within the context of the Christian community.

From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”. What is expressed in these words is of the utmost importance. Why? Because the original teachings of Jesus was not the blind faith and belief in a prophet or god-man -- but rather, the means to transform all Christian disciples of TheWay into prophets and mystics as demonstrated in the words: "...From this perspective mysticism played a vital part in the early church. Early Christianity was a religion of the spirit that expressed itself in the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness”.

But, we must then pose the question: Just what is a "...religion of the spirit"? Like an astronaut who travels beyond the limits of the earth's atmosphere into outer space, a spiritual religion prepares the seeker/disciple to transcend the barrier of this physical world, and enter into what the biblical authors portrayed as the Kingdom of God which Jesus taught was within us. But to accomplish this spiritual transcendence, you had to first prepare the physical body to make it an environment that would permit "...the heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” to be brought about -- and this requires a great amount of effort and preparation.

Throughout the countless past lives where I (Allan) had attained a condition of Anointed Enlightenment, not once had I ever undergone in any manner what could be portrayed as a formal education. Why? Because as Einstein basically states (“The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education”), when you over-develop the linear servant, and impede the development of the intuitive gift, it becomes very difficult to bring about the necessary "...heightening and enlargement of human consciousness” to the degree that one can evolve through the subsequent stages of birth, achieve Oneness with one's higher Soul-self, and open the inner "narrow strait gate" to the Kingdom within.

From the perspective of a Darwinist based foundation, there is very little in our present-day system of education that prepares the seeker/disciple to institute the necessary inner connection to their higher Soul-self. In the words of the author and visionary Philip K. Dick in his The Ten Principles Of The Gnostic Revelation when he portrays the realty of the person you are in this world to that of your higher soul-self where he wrote: "Each of us has a divine counterpart unfallen who can reach a hand down to us to awaken us. This other personality is the authentic waking self; the one we have now is asleep and minor..." He then goes on to explain with respect to the person we are in this world who the conditions of their upbringing has alienated them from their true self, thereby causing the person to "...split with the reality principle early in life, and so to speak willingly fall asleep in delusion."

And it is this state of delusion that is portrayed by Plato in his Cave of Illusions -- which can only be reversed through the process of what Plato and Socrates portray as "anamnesis" -- wherein the seeker/disciple begins to tap into the higher reality of "...the soul [which] is immortal, and repeatedly incarnated" -- relearning the "...knowledge [that] is actually in the soul from eternity..." And in conclusion Plato concludes: "What one perceives to be learning, then, is actually the recovery of what one has forgotten" -- a process that can only be accomplished through the developmental balance of the linear-intellectual and intuitive spheres of mind.

In this life it was necessary to bring about that condition of mind where I would be intuitively connected to my higher Soul-self, while simultaneously able to write. And thus, in order to fulfill my purpose in this life, it was necessary for me to develop the necessary balance between the Intuitive and Linear.

James Martin should come out then and affirm rimming, fisting, anal and oral intercourse, coprphagia and golden showers - I apologize, but this is necessary. Sodomites deliberately avoid talking about the indignity of their actions, and hide it all under the umbrella of love.

They also advertise it in schools to children and via porn to all, and then claim that everybody does it. Yes, children now do it more requently for fear of being accused of bigotry and narrow-mindedness.

He should explain why semen would go in a rectum or a mouth, and why this would not be considered disordered and repulsive.

James Martin has been so brainwashed that he no longer understands - we do not have to act on impulse, some impulses have been implanted into our minds, and with this many have lost a natural repulsion against the undignified practices of sodomites.

We Catholics believe in a rational and virtuous upbringing of our children, and we believe in the sanctity of marriage. The things I mentioned above are not part of a respectful treatment of a spouse and do not belong in school instruction and on movie screens.

Quote# 133032


Biblical Sexuality

Sexuality has become an interesting topic. The Supreme Court ruling on same-sex unions has radically changed the conversation. So many things influence the discussion: culture, politics, philosophy, ethics, and religion just to name a few. From a Christian perspective, I believe the most important lens through which to view this topic is the Bible. With many people attempting to deconstruct sound biblical teaching concerning marriage, it only seems right to expound on the issue at the root of the entire conversation: Homosexuality.

I’d like to start by saying that I have friends who are homosexual. I’ve ministered over the years to many within the homosexual community. This is not an attempt to promote an “us-versus-them” mentality. It is merely a look at biblical sexuality: God’s intent and how we should respond.

“The Lord God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone…’ Then the Lord God made a woman…” (Genesis 2:18, 22). There are several truths to be learned from the creation account. First and foremost, God created sexual identity and it can’t be undone inherently, theoretically, psychologically, or any other way. God made Adam who was a man, and Eve who was a woman. Thus sexual identity was established.

Beyond identity, God also created sexual intimacy. God intended sexual intimacy to take place between a man and a woman in the context of marriage. Homosexuality abandons God’s design in several ways. For one, instead of embracing the man-woman design, homosexuality embraces a same-sex preference as an option for sexual intimacy.

What does the Bible say?

“Do not practice homosexuality; it is a detestable sin” (Lev. 18:22). “If a man has sex with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is abhorrent” (Lev. 20:13).
“Instead of believing what they knew was the truth about God, they deliberately chose to believe lies… Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relationships with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men…” (Rom. 1:25-27).
Every mention of homosexual behavior in the Bible, both Old and New Testament, condemns it without question. The passages aren’t vague in the way that people might have once looked to the Bible to inaccurately uphold slavery. Yet those who advocate for the legitimacy of a homosexual lifestyle have gone to great lengths to call into question every biblical reference. For example, they would argue that the book of Leviticus also condemns eating shellfish or cutting your sideburns. They would say it’s ancient religious law that doesn’t apply to New Testament believers.

First, that is an extremely irresponsible way to read and interpret Scripture. One can’t just ignore these commands as ancient practices no longer relevant for New Testament Christians. That misses one of the most essential understandings of the Old Testament. Specifically, that there is an entire portion of teaching dedicated to ceremonial uncleanness and another section of teaching that speaks specifically to immoral conduct. One is centered on the sacrificial system of the people of Israel. The other is meant for every human being throughout history.

It’s one thing to describe temple rituals. It’s an entirely different thing to talk about God’s moral law (e.g. Ten Commandments). Besides, the New Testament condemns homosexual behavior as well. When it’s talked about in the Old Testament, it’s rooted in the moral law of God. It’s not the same as which foods one was allowed to eat under ancient Jewish dietary laws. Just like the prohibitions in the Old Testament against incest, God’s warning against homosexual behavior is for every age.

Then there are people who challenge New Testament verses by saying that while it seems to reprimand homosexual acts, it’s really talking about male prostitutes, not same-sex monogamous relationships. There’s only one problem, the Greek word used for homosexuality in the New Testament is ??se?????t?? (arsenokoítes) and means “partner in homosexual intercourse.” So the conclusion remains: God created human beings as male and female, and meant for sexual intimacy to take place in the context of marriage alone. As a result, the Bible throughout describes any deviation from that design as outside of God’s will for our lives.

Today’s culture hangs so much on sexuality. The world teaches that fulfilling one’s sexual desire is what brings ultimate satisfaction in life. The reality is that no earthly relationship can make one’s life complete. However, there is One who can fulfill our heart’s desire for love and acceptance. Knowing Jesus will never leave us empty. True fulfillment comes by having an authentic relationship with him.

There are many who want to ignore clear biblical teaching on the matter. Some of those people are clergy, who have no problem performing ceremonies for same-sex couples. These people not only ignore the Bible, but also 2000 years of church history. Make no mistake, from the Early Church Fathers to the Reformation and beyond, homosexual behavior has been deemed as against God’s unique sexual design for humanity.

The problem we will run into in the future does not pertain to clear biblical teaching on the subject, but rather to ecclesial and pastoral ethics. Will those who are ordained in the church uphold the biblical views and traditions of the church faithfully? Only time will tell. Regardless, the Bible is clear, without doubt and without reservation, homosexual behavior stands against God’s intent for human sexuality.
