The biggest problem is the conception of the modern nation state which basically encourages individualism as it destroys the local communities and families to make the state stronger.

Secularism is basically nothing but worshipping the state. Western interpretation of secularism is that you separate the state and religion in order to make the state the religion. Whenever someone supports secularism, it's always from the position of the state in the sense that the state should not be influenced by religion (but no one says anything when state ideology tries to influence religion, pushing certain degenerate ideological trends into religion like pro-LGBT "Christian" "churches" etc.).

Modern state = powerful elite, powerful institutions, extreme legalism and extreme individualism. And on top of it, you're supposed to worship it, wave the flag, be a loyal servant, never question the institutions and procedures of the state etc.

(Difficult to describe this "comic" but I will try. Superimposed in the middle of the screen is a picture of a newscaster with a headline below reading "Bernie Sanders: Trump Racist". In the main picture a man with a wizard outfit on and a hat with a hammer and sickle on it (who might be George Soros) is saying in tandem with the figure in the superimposed picture "Pay no attention to that globalist behind the curtain!" We see Donald Trump parting the curtain and flames in behind it.)

The Kosovo Islamic Community has decided to terminate contract with the Imam, Drilon Gashi, after the latter has accepted as a fact the Evolution Theory, which is opposed by many imams in Kosovo.

The Islamic Community in a letter sent to Gashi has accused the young imam for “inciting schism” with his comments in social media, and banned him exercising the profession of Imam to one year, but he will continue receiving two third of his salary.

The imam from the village Vitomirica of Peja finds the justification of the Islamic Community as not reasonable adding that most of the imams in Kosovo use social media platforms to reach their followers. Gashi says he wanted his opinions expressed in social media “make sense” and comment the religion “based on principles of common sense and by not ignoring scientific truths.”

In all the years I've run this blog, nothing I've written has triggered the Leftist death cult more than my observation that their heretical religion is demonically informed and motivated.

[...]

By now everyone knows that the slippery slope is real. What the death cult vehemently denies one day, they violently enforce the next. Just as with butt marriage and child trannyfreakism, your celebration of and participation in open satanism will soon be legally mandated.

Free market worship and the NAP are no match for the twisted religion of conquest that is the current Left. Wake up, repent, and believe in Our Lord Jesus Christ, who alone has authority over demons.

I am SO sorry to hear that you don't believe Heaven is real. This means you also don't believe in Hell. Jesus created both of them. Heaven is for Christians, and Hell is for those who have NOT asked for God's forgiveness and become a Christian. If you still don't believe this when you pass away, then you WILL believe it when you stand before the Great White Throne, and see God. Unfortunately, it will be TOO late to change your heart, and you will have to pay for your life of sins.

(Lyrics to "Ain't No Rest for the Triggered")

Well I shared a thought online
It was an innocuous tweet
I didn't really think much of it at the time
But then a couple of days later
I was fired from my job
And the reason left me well beyond surprised
Someone had taken what I said
Wrote a ridiculous op-ed
And spread it all over the goddamn internet
I came in contact with the author
And I asked her, "Hey, what gives"
She messaged me and this is what she said:

"Oh, there ain't no rest for the triggered
We're easily displeased
We've got hair to dye
We've got tears to cry
Please gimme your sympathy
No I won't let loose, I get my news
From places like Salon
No there ain't no rest for the triggered
Donate to my Patreon"

Not even fifteen minutes later
I had come across a crowd
It was a protest over something someone said
They called for the resignation
Of a man who seemed quite patient
In explaining what it was he really meant
Apparently the crowd was mad
That he didn't wanna ban
Halloween costumes that might have offended some
When I tried to intervene
A lady lunged out right at me
She summoned some muscle, and then began to hum

"Oh, there ain't no rest for the triggered
We're easily displeased
We've got hair to dye
We've got tears to cry
Please gimme your sympathy
No I won't let loose, I get my news
From places like Polygon
No there ain't no rest for the triggered
Donate to my Patreon"

So now a couple hours passed
I'm walking up to my front door
But from my peripheral vision I could see
That a man had dropped his keys
And like a gymnast on trapeze
I caught them in mid-air and said, "Sir, you dropped these"
He turned around in pure disgust
He said, "I'm not even a man
I'm a bigendered girl with manly tendencies"
I said, "Okay, Sir, whatever"
And he called up the police
Now I'm serving six to ten because I dared to disagree

"Oh, there ain't no rest for the triggered
We're easily displeased
We've got hair to dye
We've got tears to cry
Please gimme your sympathy
No I won't let loose, I get my news
From places like Salon
No there ain't no rest for the triggered
Donate to my Patreon"

Note the result of my little demonic activity check. The anon who went to the trouble of digging up a post from 2015 just to leave a mocking comment suddenly falls silent when I ask him to make a profession of faith in Jesus Christ. This wasn't the last instance of that phenomenon.

Quote# 143201

God is Justice. He punishes anyone who declares their own subjective, humanistic standards higher than His own. There is no cruelty in Justice. The unjust suffer rightfully for their own evil. Man has been evil and cruel to each other since Adam decided that his own declaration of good and evil in the Garden of Eden.

God is Love and Good. All acts of goodness, kindness and love are expressions of God. God is the Standard of all those things. Loving our neighbors produces them as the fruit and the Spirit of God's Law. When man arbitrarily twists, neglects or transgresses the Law of Love towards God and our neighbors, only suffering, cruelty ans meanness results.

God is Wisdom. It is wise to obey God who knows all things. Only a fool sets himself up for a beatdown. We have seen so many examples of fools on Youtube who we feel are unloving, mean and cruel to others and get what they deserve in the end. Are we going to blame the instruments of Justice, Goodness, Wisdom and Love as being mean and cruel? Certainly not! Justice was met and it was good and the very expression of Love.

Humanism creates religion and ideologies counter to God's Law and it is the height of arrogance and ignorance to label God evil and cruel when the author of all that is evil and cruel is in fact, man himself!

If you need a break from philosophical God haters, allow me to help. I could refer you to miracles in the Bible but since we are dealing with people who question God’s existence here in the comment section, than I will go a different route. In my personal life, I have seen and been a part of miracles by the hand of God (God of the Chrsitians - Yeshua). I prayed for a woman with a short leg by 6? and watched her leg grow in 5 minutes to perfectly. I prayed many times for God to change the weather and He did in 5 minutes. I prayed for God to heal countless times and He did often instantly or in 5 minutes. Once he healed my of bells palsy which has no cure or treatment in 30 days as I built my faith. I have cast out demons in Jesus Name. I have seen angels and demons. I have had visions of Heaven and I have heard actual real choirs of angels for hours while fully awake. I have cured insane people through prayer, prayed for people hard of healing, prayed for cancer patients and seen them all healed and delivered from bondage. I prayed for a friend in prison and his sentence was cut multiple time until released very shortly by comparison. He left his gang and is now reaponsible and takes care of his woman and child witha good job. I lead 2 homosexuals to Christ who denounced homosexuality forever without any social pressure and they both married women and have had children since then. I have prayed with sexually abused Christian children and they lead their abuser to Christ. no more abuse! When I was 10 I prayed for God to convince president Reagan to reply to my letter and he DID. It was a 2 page hand written letter by the president stating that he himself wrote it. God is powerful and real. end of story!

Apostasy is epidemic throughout Hawaii. Nudity is everywhere! Nudity on beaches is common. That's true of all America today. A recent law was passed in Hawaii, giving legal permission for undercover police officers to have sex with prostitutes. It is wickedness! Women where G-string bathing suits that expose 99% of their flesh is wicked! They wear white bathing suits that are completely transparent. People can see right through them, looking at their bare buttocks. It may seem sexy and funny now, but judgment day is coming in eternity. If you think God is a good sport and won't be that upset, you are mightily mistaken friend. Nobody cares anymore, but I DO.

I love Jesus Christ and I am one of the few people who still care about morality. Many people care, but they figure, “What's the use, what difference can one person make?” I believe that there's always somebody listening, reading, pondering, thinking and making a decision. It is my hope and prayer that you ladies will honor God by keeping your clothes on. Modest Apparel USA (ladies, here's a source of modest culottes; honor the Lord in your dress). By the way, I am not associated with that clothing company in any way. I have never received a penny for my labors in the Lord. This is a labor of love for Jesus Christ. I don't care about your money, I just want you to give your heart to God. Are you a born-again Christian? Also, please check out 1611skirts.com for culottes.

The Bible teaches that unchaste women, and women who pursue careers instead of motherhood, and women who abort instead of love their children, and women who aren't discreet, and bad women, and women who are disobedient to their husband... ALL these women are BLASPHEMING GOD!!! That is, by placing their will above God's they are speaking evil of God's Word by their actions. Titus 2:4-5, “That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.”

Women have to be very careful how they move, talk and make eye contact with men. You say, “Preacher, you have a dirty mind!” No, I have a man's mind. I realize that what I am teaching about morality and modesty is considered old-fashioned, antiquated and outdated; but my friend, Jesus Christ Himself said in Matthew 5:27-28, “Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” Lust is just as sinful as committing the actually act of adultery. Matthew 5:28, “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” Yet, American society makes light of the sin of lust, even encouraging lust, parading lust on our beaches and on television (hellivision), publishing lust in smutty magazines and Godless sensual Hollywood.

Should we euthanize orphans?

I was watching CNN the other day and they were doing a segment on animal euthanasia in Japan. They are so flooded over there that they decided that if animals aren’t adopted they should be put in a metal box and gassed. I was thinking, here in the US we have a broken welfare system and dozens of kids in care who nobody wants to adopt, most will probably turn into criminals and end up in prison or death row. Maybe it would be better if we euthanized the orphans nobody wants, we’ll be saving them from a horrible life and society from juvenile delinquents and future crimes. With the money we save with euthanasia, we could spend it on those families that do adopt making sure they are financially supported and that the adopted kids have access to good schools, sports and psychological care maybe even college.

[later]
@Third Asopia:
To be honest I am not in favour. Why euthanise an orphan when he has a bright future in front of him? I know his parents died, but he still has a future. Everyone does. Unless you are at the last stages, then yes, because you have completed the most important parts of life. But, an orphan? Who's probably young? Come on. There's something better than euthanasia.

Well, most orphans get bounced around from home to home so they’re constantly being psychologically traumatized. Orphanages are hell holes. Unadopted orphans are like an anchor weighing down the welfare system, if we can cut them loose we can save money to spend supporting successful adoptions. Many uncared for orphans will end up in prison. Instead, why not save everyone trouble and euthanize a small number to benefit the rest? It’s nice to believe that everyone has a bright future but that’s not true. Let’s support the ones that are likely to succeed and rather than torturing those that won’t by throwing them from home to home or dumping them in orphanages that are more like prisons than homes, we should have the option of euthanizing them humanely.

Quote# 143188

As we continued to walk I could notice the structures, the street names and some other things in this part of town looked very similar to the prosperous house we just left. But here I could see that even the trees that lined the streets were dead or dying. The streets were littered with trash and there were potholes in almost every part of the road. This was quite a sight. As we made our final turn toward our destination, it dawned on me that we were revisiting the same house of prayer but many years after our first visit. I saw people everywhere. But these people had pain and anxiety written on their faces.

When we got to the building, the first remarkable thing I saw were security guards. They were all over the place. They were pushing people around, suspecting, harassing and policing everyone. They were checking the bags of those that were coming in and of those that were going out.

The first level we walked into was the hall of shields. This is where the gold shields, gold bars, gold plates, and all kinds and forms of gold were. This is the same level that had all kinds of precious stones of indescribable value. When we walked into this level everything still looked the same. The shining, the glittering and the throne were still there, but the weight of the glory that I experienced at this level was absent. I could not tell what was missing because everything seemed to be in its place, but the visible joy and the freedom that was present was not there. There was a guard standing by every shield and every precious thing. Before I could open my mouth to ask any question Wisdom said, “This is not gold, this is wood and other cheap metals. They look like gold because they are painted to look like gold. The gold items and all those precious stones that were here are gone. They were taken away by Shishak, the spirit of this world. They are replaced by cheap articles that look like the real thing. The absence of the glory left the building vulnerable and made it possible for the thieves to steal the precious things of the house of the Lord. Because the glory is gone there is great anxiety in the house. The custodians of the house have taken great measures and devised strategies to secure the house, but these strategies were not of the Lord. Come and I will show you more.” He then took me from one level to another. It was a very sad experience. This house has been raped of her glory and her precious oils were gone. Her maternity ward was baby-less. It was depressingly silent. They turned it into a library filled with books on how to make babies but the few cribs left here were empty. What used to be filled with new babies everyday was now empty. Then I saw men and women walking around on this level with swollen bellies. They were either too weak to push out their overdue and dying babies, or their big and bulging bellies were filled with empty wind.

Part of the maternity was now being used by an army of psychologists. These were recruited by the present custodians of the house to teach fruitless adults how to manage their lives and how to be satisfied with their barren lives. These miserable counselors insisted that it was the will of the King that they should remain childless and that their contentment as childless citizens will actually glorify the King. The main concern of the people on this floor was for themselves. This was now a house of selfishness. There was no zeal for the glory of the Lord of Hosts. They had a “good” explanation for why this disease of shame, emptiness and barrenness afflicted this holy place. The aim of these explanations was to comfort and keep the saints from the holy restlessness that causes them to cry out day and night. Yet there were those among them that would rather die than remain barren one more day.

As if the story of the maternity ward were not bad enough, I walked into the once House of Bread. There was hardly any bread here. The only bread here was brought in from the outside and many waited in line to have a little piece of it. Of all the levels, this was where the problem of this house was most noticeable. I could not stop crying for the sadness and the starvation on the faces that I saw in the House of Bread. This was too much for me to bear; my sobbing turned into a loud and audible cry. I wept and kept asking the question why? Why? Why can’t someone bake some bread? Where are the fruit for the fruit table and those that hung on the walls? Where are the dishes that use to be here for the hungry to be fed? The water fountains that lined the walls of the halls were still there looking better than ever. But there was no water coming from them. The few that had water coming from them were either too dirty or too lukewarm to swallow and they could not quench anyone’s thirst. I was weeping, brokenhearted, and drenched with tears. There was no food in the house of the Lord. As the poor were struggling to manage the little bread left in one part of this level, another group of people were in a different part of the level selling and buying bread. They were making deals with the rich to serve them the bulk of the bread in the house.

Then Wisdom put His hand on my shoulder and said, “Let me take you to where the problem is.” We walked to the basement level. As we entered into this level Wisdom said, “The fresh bread that was served at the fifth level of the house was baked here and so was every good thing of this house. They all came through this level.” I noticed that the couches and beds that used to be on the seventh floor were now in the basement floor. Also the fancy conference tables were here on this floor. The office equipment and chairs were also here. Those who were supposed to be praying were either sleeping or too busy with many of life’s very important demands. They pushed prayer out of their schedules and considered it too unimportant to invest their precious hours, resources and manpower. They were still very diligent and displayed a great skill in management and administration of the house. In their wisdom they almost had everything in place. They had a good explanation for the things that were not in place. But the present leaders of this house never admitted that the lack of all-out prayer was the source of the present distress. Those that admitted it never had enough courage to do anything about it. And yet some of them completely denied the existence of any problems at all. “All is well, we have it under control,” is their response
Most of the engine room was now turned into classrooms and a library for the knowledge of everything; there were books everywhere I looked. The people I saw at this level were very busy, serious- looking, and well-dressed people.

@Opio Rotten that is what happens when we let liberal subversion (via freemasonry and jews) rotten moral, ethics and family values out of people's imaginary and day-to-day lives.
People become spiritualy weak, live for labels on a shallow pursue for happiness, sexual and social validation. Males become cucks, cheaters, incels and tax money machines to feed in whores through artificial privileges, welfare and free attention from social networks.
Men should never turn their backs to God, they must keep patriarchal core values and their pimp hand strong and stead.
Men must follow God and women must assist men in the accomplishment of the Lord's will.
All the alternatives to this path will lead humanity to degeneration, atomization and inevitable self destruction.
And I am sure Islam will take over latin america due to this induced moral emptyness.
And people here, specialy males, will beg on their knees for conversion.?

We cannot continue to avoid this question. How did we as a society come to a point where on February 25th, 2019 the United State’s Senate actually blocked a bill protecting infants that are born alive from being allowed to simply die on a table with no help?

The root of this issue started on July 19th, 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York with the first women’s rights convention. After this conference new rights were given to women in divorce making divorce easier and less painful for women which lead to a spike in divorces even before the passage of Woman’s Suffrage in 1920.

Women from 1848 and forward began to rebel against the authority of their fathers and their husbands. This led to the rejection of courtship and the embrace of the new practice of dating. Dating led to rampant sex outside of marriage and a jump in out of wedlock births which eventually peaked at what we have today which is a 40 percent out-wedlock birth rate.

This change to woman-centric marriages and relationships also lead to a 53 percent divorce rate at its peak in the 1980’s. After divorce rates peaked at 53 percent the next generation began rejecting marriage and even dating became dysfunctional to the point that in our current culture 60 percent of people ages 18-34 are not married.

So, we can see the natural progression.

Giving women more rights and control over their lives, bodies and who they married led to more divorce, more sex outside of marriage, more children born out of wedlock, abortion and finally now in 2019 legalized infanticide.

When will we admit the root of all this evil? When will we admit that overturning God’s design and his social order of men ruling over women was a colossal mistake? How far must we go as a society before we will come to our senses? Will our civilization have to collapse before we will undo all the rights we have given to women since the Seneca Falls convention in 1848?

Although there will be varying degrees of rewards in Heaven (1st Corinthians 3:8-9), and varying degrees of shining for soulwinners (Daniel 12:3), and many tears will flow at the Judgment Seat of Christ (2nd Corinthians 5:9-11); I also do not believe there will be any miserable children of God in eternity. Heaven is a wonderful place!!!

We used to sing a precious song on the Church Bus every week, which went like this...

Heaven is a wonderful place,
Filled with glory and grace;
I want to see my Savior's face,
Heaven is a wonderful place!

(Alternate last line... Heaven is a wonderful, Heaven is a marvellous, Heaven is a wonderful place!)


Hear the song melody: https://youtu.be/p8Qd413W8l4?t=111 (NOTE: I think Seventh-Day Adventism is a Satanic cult, but these precious children sang this song correctly. All the other versions on YouTube sound like horrible rap music!)

Quote# 143179

The Democrats are said to be the party of Jim Crow, black codes, and the Ku Klux Klan—but it’s the GOP that’s racist, or something. These historical debates get the Left and Right going on social media. Yet, a new study just slays the whole notion that liberalism is averse to racism. It’s the seat of irony. The report found that white liberals dumb themselves down while interacting with minorities in order to get along with them (via Yale Insights):
Racial bias can put people of color at a disadvantage when interviewing for a job, buying a house, or interacting with the police. New research suggests that bias may also shape daily interactions between racial minorities and white people, even those whites who tend to be less biased.
According to new research by Cydney Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at Yale SOM, white liberals tend to downplay their own verbal competence in exchanges with racial minorities, compared to how other white Americans act in such exchanges. The study is scheduled for publication in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
While many previous studies have examined how people who hold racial bias behave in multi-racial settings, few have studied how whites who are more well-intentioned interact with people of other races. “There’s less work that explores how well-intentioned whites try to get along with racial minorities,” Dupree says. “We wanted to know their strategies for increasing connections between members of different social groups—and how effective these strategies are.”
Dupree and her co-author, Susan Fiske of Princeton University, began by analyzing the words used in campaign speeches delivered by Democratic and Republican presidential candidates to different audiences over the years. They scanned 74 speeches delivered by white candidates over a 25-year period. Approximately half were addressed to mostly-minority audiences—at a Hispanic small business roundtable discussion or a black church, for example. They then paired each speech delivered to a mostly-minority audience with a comparable speech delivered at a mostly-white audience—at a mostly-white church or university, for example. The researchers analyzed the text of these speeches for two measures: words related to competence (that is, words about ability or status, such as “assertive” or “competitive”) and words related to warmth (that is, words about friendliness, such as “supportive” and “compassionate”).
[…]
The team found that Democratic candidates used fewer competence-related words in speeches delivered to mostly minority audiences than they did in speeches delivered to mostly white audiences.
Gee—I wonder why white liberals feel the need to dumb themselves down in front of non-whites. Is it because they find them…incompetent? That appears to be the case (via Washington Times):

“It was kind of an unpleasant surprise to see this subtle but persistent effect,” Ms. Dupree said. “Even if it’s ultimately well-intentioned, it could be seen as patronizing.”
The study flies in the face of a standard talking point of the political left—that white conservatives are racist—while raising questions about whether liberals are perpetuating racial stereotypes about blacks being less competent than whites.
[…]
The researchers then set up an experiment in which white liberals were asked to respond to hypothetical individuals named “Emily” and “Lakisha.”
“[L]iberal individuals were less likely to use words that would make them appear highly competent when the person they were addressing was presumed to be black rather than white,” said the release. “No significant differences were seen in the word selection of conservatives based on the presumed race of their partner.”
Ms. Dupree said the “competence downshift” could indicate a greater eagerness by white liberals to connect with those of other races.
“My hope is that this work will help include well-intentioned people who see themselves as allies but who may be unwittingly contributing to group divides,” said Ms. Dupree. “There is a broader need to include them in the conversation.”
Still, a white liberal making him (or her) seem dumb because they find the non-white they’re interacting with less competent. That seems…pretty racist.
