Frenetic Friday

So first a bit of technology.  Do you know what a Raspberry Pi is?  It is a small single board computer that hobbyists use to make a variety of projects.  One of which is the Poison Pi.  Larry Pesce developed the ultimate hacker package.  It is a Raspberry Pi that is configured to attack the wireless network of a company by sitting in a mail room or at an absent employee’s desk.   The unit is self powered and fits in a standard postal box.  Once it is mailed and arrives at the destination it will then attack the wifi network.  Read more here:  Poison Pi sniffs WIFI  Now a friend of mine said that this could be improved upon by using drones to just drop the poison pi on the roof tops of the building you wish to hack tucking the board into an out of the way place. And there you have the Robotic Over Lords plan to control all the WIFI.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

So maybe you’ve heard the stories of the “aversion therapy” used by ex-gay groups to cure people of homosexual tendencies the wires, the electricity, the lies about what actually happened.  Peter Sprigg writing for the FRC Blog quotes Christopher Doyle an ex-gay, a therapist, and founder of Voice for the Voiceless.

 “As a former homosexual and practitioner of Sexual Orientation Change Effort (SOCE) therapy, I had never heard of such inhumane treatment, except from anti-ex-gay activists who often claim that SOCE employs such barbaric methods.”

Doyle doing research into these supposed practices actually found that none of them can be confirmed.    In one account of the so called gay aversion camp no such camp could be found except in one instance a 1999 film called “But I am a Cheerleader” where the name of the came was call True Directions.  Read all about it here:  Truth Matters

And continuing in this vein let’s focus your attention on Judge Tonya Parker a Texas Judge who refuses to marry heterosexual couples until gay couples can marry in Texas.  She tells such couples:

“I’m sorry. I don’t perform marriage ceremonies because we are in a state that does not have marriage equality, and until it does, I am not going to partially apply the law to one group of people that doesn’t apply to another group of people.”

Now the judge isn’t required to marry anyone that is a discretionary function so she isn’t flaunting the law.  But the question that comes my mind is she actually upholding the law?

Matt Walsh blogs about how there is no such thing as marriage equality

Of course this isn’t new information Dr. James White at Alpha and Omega Ministries has been saying this for quite some time.

Speaking of penguins:

No this isn’t just an excuse to get a random bit of Monty Python in, well it is and it isn’t, but it is about purple penguins. Yes purple penguins which is what teachers in a Nebraska school district have been instructed to call the boys and girls in the schools because boys and girls are too gender exclusive. The goal is to speak of them in gender inclusive manner so calling them purple penguins, or red racoons I suppose, won’t offend those who haven’t decided what their gender is or isn’t.

“Don’t use phrases such as ‘boys and girls,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen,’ and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention,” instructs a training document given to middle-school teachers at the Lincoln Public Schools.

Teachers are to ”Always ask yourself . . . ‘Will this configuration create a gendered space?’” the document says.

The instructions were part of a list called “12 steps on the way to gender inclusiveness” developed by Gender Spectrum, an organization that “provides education, training and support to help create a gender sensitive and inclusive environment for children of all ages.”

Other items on the list include asking all students about their preferred pronouns and decorating the classroom with “all genders welcome” door hangers.

If teachers still find it “necessary” to mention that genders exist at all, the document states, they must list them as “boy, girl, both or neither.”

Furthermore, it instructs teachers to interfere and interrupt if they ever hear a student talking about gender in terms of “boys and girls” so the student can learn that this is wrong. (Wrong as in God got it wrong when He created them male and female)

“Point out and inquire when you hear others referencing gender in a binary manner,” it states. “Ask things like . . . ‘What makes you say that? I think of it a little differently.’ Provide counter-narratives that challenge students to think more expansively about their notions of gender.”

Yes welcome to the new public schools where gender is discouraged and children are actually purple penguins. Or another reason to homeschool your children.

Well that is all the insanity I can handle for one week so goodbye and see you next Friday for more phreneticness.
