Welcome to the first Frenetic Friday of the new year and away we go:
Oh yes the year has started out crazy and it hasn’t gotten better case in point:
New York Satanists want to erect Baphomet statue next to the Ten Commandment statue in the capitol of Oklahoma. Yes a New York group of Satanists have applied for a permit to build the seven foot tall seated figure of Baphomet which would have two smiling children on either side of it. Lucien Greaves, a spokesperson for the Satanic Temple said: “will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation”. Doesn’t that just give you a warm fuzzy? But that isn’t all no- no various other groups have asked also to put up statues of Hindu gods, Flying Spaghetti Monster, and a animal rights group statue.
And then there was this: NameMyDaughter.com Stephen, a father, has trouble figuring out what to name his unborn daughter so he has turned to the Internet and yes that has given the usual half wits a place to post stupid names. At the time of this writing “Cthulu” is first place for the first name and All-Spark is first place for the middle name. In case you didn’t know “Cthulu” is the name for a squid like demon-god that H.P. Lovecraft first created back in 1928. And All-Spark is the soul or energy that makes transformers alive. There is one caveat to this naming and that is the father gets to over rule any name and substitute one of his own. I foresee a lot of therapy in this little girls life.
Some of us remember atomic wedgies, yes nothing like having the back of your underwear dragged up the the top of your head by some lout with more muscles than brains. But this is new: a step father and son were drinking and gotten into a fight where upon the step father was killed when the son gave him an atomic wedgie! The elastic of the underwear served as a ligature upon the neck of the step father and killed him.
Then there is this:
I guess a notice in the newspaper would have been too blasé.
And then to promote a film where a woman is giving birth to a baby conceived by the Devil we have this:
I’d like to point out something here there is nothing in the Bible that teaches the Antichrist is a child that was physically conceived by Satan, nothing. It is a complete work of fiction.
Speaking of kids here is another reason to homeschool your child. A thirteen year old girl took a picture of a poster entitled “How do people express their sexual feelings.” Can you guess? Well I’m not going to list what was on the poster but if you want you can view it here. And yes this was part of the schools sex education program! Needless to say the father of the thirteen year old girl was upset, and I say good for him! May his tribe increase! He thinks what the poster describes is too much information for what a thirteen year old needs to know. And I agree whole heartedly. There is a difference between need to know and information over load. Unfortunately that isn’t what is being taught in public schools no you have to get more information ever younger so that first graders know things that I never knew until I was an adult. And yes that may be hyperbole but only just.
And last but not least Cristina Odone , former deputy editor of the New Statesman has written a provocative article about how liberalism has become the new orthodoxy and that new orthodoxy doesn’t allow for the presence of Christians. You can read the article here.
And with that I wish you a good weekend.
