God is No Longer a He

from One News Now:

Episcopal Church votes no masculine pronouns for God

Continuing its freefall to the theological left, the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Washington, D.C., voted last week to pass a resolution that puts an end to the use of masculine pronouns for God as it prepares to update its Book of Common Prayer.

Episcopalian delegates to the Diocese’s 123rd Convention swiftly passed the resolution in the nation’s capital so that “gendered language for God” will no longer be used.

“If revision of the Book of Common Prayer is authorized, to utilize expansive language for God from the rich sources of feminine, masculine and non-binary imagery for God found in Scripture and tradition and, when possible, to avoid the use of gendered pronouns for God,” the diocese’s resolution reads. “Over the centuries, our language and our understanding of God has continued to change and adapt.” read more

Minnesota’s Somali Problem

from Creeping Sharia:

Minnesota’s “Little Mogadishu” celebrated at Reason.com

Not all that many years ago, the worst things you could say about Minneapolis were that it was very cold in the winter and, for an American city of its size, it was somewhat dull. On the plus side, this traditionally Scandinavian-American burg was a model of safety and cleanliness.

Well, that’s ancient history. Minneapolis is now the world’s #2 capital of Somali Muslims. (#1 is Mogadishu.) In the Somali community, unemployment and welfare dependency rates are high. The city is a major recruiting center for ISIS. At least a couple of ISIS recruits have used taxpayer-funded student loans to fly to the Middle East to become jihadists; many other local Somalis are suspected of wiring welfare cash to terrorist groups. Violent crime is epidemic: as recently as December 13, a Somali Muslim immigrant stabbed a Minneapolis woman no fewer than fourteen times on her way home from work. read more

California History Textbooks Celebrate the LGBT Movement

It is being reported that, “the California board of education brought to an end a decades-long campaign to emphasize lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender historical figures in state social-studies / history textbooks, approving K-8 volumes that make identity politics of all kinds the core of the subject.”

So grades K-8 will now be learning alternative history, of all the significant achievements of America’s homosexuals and cross-dressers. As a parent, I can think of nothing more enlightening than to teach my five year old that Ralph down the street, who dresses like a woman, is historically significant.

California State Senator Mark Leno, who represents San Francisco (where else) says that, “Most textbooks don’t include any historical information about the LGBT movement, which has great significance to both California and U.S. history. We are censoring the history lessons,” denying students “the facts of the struggle for equal rights.” Really – name three. And the annual gay-pride parade doesn’t count as being historically significant.

Coincidently, Leno is running for Mayor of San Francisco, but I’m sure this has nothing to do with his most recent push for LGBT significance. And last I checked, everyone in this country already has equal rights. Not special rights – just equal rights. read more

Be Prepared to be Peppered with Questions on Your Next Date

On Monday, Jeff Fisher, Jeffy, was filling in for Pat Gray on his Blaze Radio program. He spoke on many topics. One that interested me, because of the absurdity, was an article written by a radical feminist and posted on the website, “Wear Your Voice.”

The article was entitled, “10 THINGS EVERY INTERSECTIONAL FEMINIST SHOULD ASK ON A FIRST DATE.”

This person, who describes herself as a, “queer femme of color,” made an actual list of the 10 things everyone, or every radical leftist, should ask of a prospective friend, date or suitor, whether they be heterosexual, homosexual, or any of a dozen or so other classifications.

She says that she keeps, “close relationships with people who go beyond allyship; they’re true accomplices in the fight against white supremacy, queerphobia and misogyny. If you’re not going to support marginalized folks, then we can’t be friends, let alone date. The personal is political.”

Well I give her credit for one thing. She, unlike many leftists, at least admits that everything boils down to politics for those on the left. They seem to have nothing else. But what do I know. I’m a heterosexual Christian White guy who’s never been oppressed. Everything I am screams oppressor. read more

Video Podcast – Civility on Campus is Racist

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Two professors at the University of Northern Iowa have theorized that being civil in college classrooms is a form of racism and that such behavior reinforces “white racial power.”

The two also claim that attempting to “treat everyone the same” is a way to “erase racial identity.” They call this Caucasian dysfunction, “whiteness informed civility,” which according to the professors is also a form of racism.

The bottom line appears, at least to these two, to be that being uncivil to persons of color is racist, and being civil is also.

So what is a white college student to do? By the way – both these professors appear to be white. read more

British Elite Special Forces to Allow Women

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The British Special Air Service, or SAS, is the effective forerunner for American Special Forces. They rival American operators in skill and toughness.

The elite SAS was founded in 1941, for the North Africa campaign against the Nazis. This was six months prior to the Americans entering the war. Two years later, in 1943, began what we know today as the Navy SEALs. When they began, the SEALs were known as the Naval Combat Demolition Unit, or NCDU, and worked exclusive in the water.

For almost three quarters of a century, the British SAS, SEALs, SWCC, Army Rangers, Delta, Green Berets, Marine Corps Special Operations Command, or MARSOC, and Air Force Special Operations Squadrons, or AFSOC, have been male only.

Then President “Feminizer” Obama was elected and things began to change – for the worse. The era of politically correct military social experimentation was on. And what a perfect group of test subjects – ones who can’t quit or merely walk out. Soldiers, sailors, airman and Marines were trapped and forced to put up with new military P.C. directives. read more

What if someday, I decide I’m sick of the grind. I’m tried of working and earning a living. I just want to be taken care of. Heck, at this point I’m even too lazy to go to the welfare office and fill out all that paperwork in order to collect free stuff. I’m just done with all the responsibility of being a societal human.

May I then self identify as some sort of unique zoo animal? What animal? I don’t know – I’m questioning. But I will get a place to sleep, three squares a day, and my very own habitat to stretch my legs, should I desire. I mean – why the heck not? Of course this sounds completely ridiculous, or it would have maybe a decade or so ago. Now, I’m thinking it doesn’t sound that far-fetched.

After all, we humans are now able to run the gamut of self-identification. It started simply enough. We were male or female. But that was too simplistic. Then we expanded to heterosexual and homosexual. Still not good enough. If you are a homosexual female you’re not just homosexual, but lesbian. And because homosexual developed a negative connotation, it was changed to gay. I guess because homosexual men are also happy people. I don’t know.

Still, this did not define us all, so the acronym LGBT was coined. A person could comfortably identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. However, some in our society still felt left out – and we sure can’t have that. So the letter scramble continues, giving us the most inclusive acronym to date – LGBTTQQIP2SAA. read more

Liberal Professor Compared To Hitler

from The Daily Caller:

Dr. Jordan B. Peterson, a Canadian university professor, identifies as a classic British liberal, but his opposition to the progressive shift in higher education has led media outlets, activists, and fellow professors to label him “far right” and compare him to Adolf Hitler.

In a conversation with The Daily Caller, Dr. Peterson discussed how such labels and libelous attacks are used to shut down debate and to “contribute to this increased polarization.”

“We’re in a situation now where if you disagree vociferously with the radical left, then you’re immediately regarded as an exemplar of the opposite extreme,” he told TheDC. “That’s not good, and in my case it’s certainly not true.” read more

WND Exclusive – I’m White — Through no Fault of my Own

Talk about a great gig if you can get it. Being able to quit your day job and travel around the country, getting paid good money for bashing your own race. It’s possible you don’t even have to really believe it, as long as it sounds sincere and sufficiently vitriolic.

Not many have been afforded this opportunity. The only one I am aware of is Dr. Robin DiAngelo. She has a Ph.D. in Multicultural Education and was a lecturer at her alma mater, the University of Washington in Seattle. She is also white. However, it appears she feels quite guilty about this.

Now she receives invitations to speak at colleges by organizations such as the Public Affairs Alliance for Communities of Color at the University of Texas at Austin. read more

Next Round of Cuts Coming for ESPN

from Constitution.com:

In the world of sports reporting, there is no longer any doubt that politics are bad for business, yet ESPN can’t seem to divorce themselves from the democrats.

The “worldwide leader in sports” has long been playing politics on their network, joining the massive, futile “resistance” to President Trump that has been spearheaded by a number of liberal lunatics.

Beginning with their unethical firing of baseball legend Curt Schilling over his personal political beliefs, the network has turned into a harbinger of media malfeasance to come. [Actually – Rush Limbaugh was the first to get the ax.] read more
