A Rant


So a few months ago the inimitable Dan Phillips made a tweet that went something like this: Back in the seventies a new tv series would come out and our only though was “I wonder if it is going to be any good?”. Now it is ” I wonder which character is going to be LGBTQ+? “.

Recently this was brought into focus with the latest Disney-Pixar animated movie called Onward. In it there is a female character who talks about her ‘girlfriend ‘ and the kids they have together. And this is causing some consternation among Christians who are mad because of what they perceive as Disney’s betrayal of family films.

Well here’s a news flash while you have been watching Disney DreamWorks has already snuck in their LGBTQ+ character into a children’s cartoon. What am I talking about? Meet Kipo and the Age of the Wonder Beasts.

Now in this series you meet Kipo a young girl in her teens who lives underground with her father and the rest of the human survivors away from the mutant beasts that live above ground. Well one day Kipo’s little group gets attacked and Kipo is left above ground. Well just like every other journey story Kipo gathers a little group around her including a young boy named Mandu. And in one scene where Kipo reveals that she may have feelings for Mandu he tells her that he is gay. And if course when they do arrive where Kipo’s group has fled Mandu sees the prettiest boy in the group and falls in lust.

Now maybe it is just me. Maybe DreamWorks Animation isn’t associated with family cartoons, which makes no sense to me considering that they have made Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, and more. Or maybe it is the Disney brand. I know that we boomers grew up with Wonderful World of Disney, the Mickey Mouse Club, (the original) and other things from our childhood. But here is a clue Walt’s been dead for a number of years now and Disney has been kowtowing to the LGBTQ+ crowd for some time now. Quit expecting something different.

Right now it is tough finding “family friendly” films. Family is being redefined along with gender and anything else that the culture warriors can get a hold of, and Disney went to the other side long ago. You want something that the entire family can watch don’t look at current movies start investing into the classics. There is a reason they called it the golden age.

That is it for tonight returning you to your regular scheduled Monday night.

Frenetic Friday


Well it has been an interesting couple of weeks so let’s just get to it.

If you haven’t seen this take a minute and watch Taylor Lock imitate Trump attending one seminary class.

Trump attending one seminary class ~ Taylor Lock

So if you had $2,821,955.28 aka 2.5 million euros to combat the migrant rape crisis going on in your country what measures would you do? This is Finland’s answer:

This is my answer:

Ok it’s time once again to deny biology and science.

Now according to an article in bbc.com The high court ruled that people who had given birth regardless of their gender (Take your time read the sentence again if needed) are mothers. The transgender man in question wants to be, of course referred to as a father.

Of course the case is being appealed. If the appeal succeeds his (sic) son would become the first person born in England and Wales to not legally have a mother.

Like I said a denial of biology and science.

While we are on the subject let me point you to an article by Rosaria Butterfield over on TableTalk Magazine:

Intersectionality and the Church by Rosaria Butterfield

It is past time for a Robotic Over Lord update.

You’ll love this a growing vine like robot.

And of course someone decided to recreate the biggest snake that ever lived as a robot.

Stuff of nightmares.

Frenetic Friday


From my sickbed I pen these few notes in my trembling hand…

Alphabet time once again!

Now this maybe hard to believe after all the drag queen story hour articles but here is a drag queen that says: Moms keep your kids away! (Warning coarse language)

Imagine that, nudity, drugs, sexual acts.  Why in the name of everything good and holy would you expose a child to this?  And yet there is this:

But now for something quite similar…


Do you know who Fallon Fox is?  He is a transgender MMA fighter who fights in the women’s division.  And has been named in an article in Outsports as the bravest athlete ever.  Now, if you’re unfamiliar with Fox he in his bouts fractured twice the skulls of his female opponents. In one bout he:

secured a grip on Newsome’s head… With her hands gripping the back of Newsome’s skull, she delivered a massive knee, bringing her leg up while pulling her opponent’s head down. The blow landed on Newsome’s chin and dropped her, unconscious, face-first on the mat.

That blow ended Newsome’s career in the sport. Also Newsome never knew that Fox was born a man and surgically altered to appear as a woman.

Tamikka Brents Fox’s other opponent, of whom Fox broke seven orbital bones and gave her a concussion said this:

I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night,” Brents said, recounting her experience fighting Fox. “I can’t answer whether it’s because she was born a man or not because I’m not a doctor. I can only say, I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life and I am an abnormally strong female in my own right… I still disagree with Fox fighting. Any other job or career I say have a go at it, but when it comes to a combat sport I think it just isn’t fair.

Joe Rogan said of Fallon Fox:

Fight guys, yes. She has to fight guys. First of all, she’s not really a she. She’s a transgender, post-op person. The operation doesn’t shave down your bone density. It doesn’t change. You look at a man’s hands and you look at a women’s hands and they’re built different. They’re just thicker, they’re stronger, your wrists are thicker, your elbows are thicker, your joints are thicker. Just the mechanical function of punching, a man can do it much harder than a woman can, period.

But according to Outsport’s Cyd Zeigler Fox deserves this title because of his bravery against all the hatred directed towards him.   Right. 

There is no consensus among sporting organizations as to what gives a man enough of a disadvantage to compete against women. The International Olympic Committee says that a male needs to suppress testosterone to be at or below 10 nanomules per litre of blood for a period of one year prior to competition. Females who take testosterone would need years of hormones to get up to that. 

Muscle mass does not substantially decrease with hormone treatment. Eradication of genitals does not diminish bone density. There are no cohesive Federal laws in the US to determine what makes a male eligible to compete against women, and while males have won women’s championships, female-bodied athletes have not risen to the upper levels of male competition. <article by The Postmillenial>

Fallon Fox himself said this:

My teammates had no idea I was trans. They recognized my endurance, my strength, my ability to cut weight in the same category as cisgender women. There was no idea in their minds that I didn’t belong. They weren’t thinking, ‘oh my God, she’s going to kill somebody.’”

And now the a statement by the Church of England:

According to the Guardian the Church of England has said that sex is reserved for only heterosexual married couples and that gay or straight civil unions should be abstinent.  This is made clear  by the Bishops in a pastoral guidance.

In the statement the Bishops say:

For Christians, marriage – that is, the lifelong union between a man and a woman, contracted with the making of vows – remains the proper context for sexual activity.”

The church “seeks to uphold that standard” in its approach to civil partnerships, and “to affirm the value of committed, sexually abstinent friendships” within such partnerships.

It adds: “Sexual relationships outside heterosexual marriage are regarded as falling short of God’s purpose for human beings.”

So the Bishops have come out, no pun intended, for traditional Christian marriage.

Of course this has raised the ire of the supporters of the Alphabet Collective which has said this:

The C of E is unable to get over its fixation on homosexuality, which is driving the the national church into a position more like a fundamentalist sect and does not speak to the vast majority of younger people today quoted by Linda Woodhead, professor in the department of politics, philosophy and religion at Lancaster University

Well I for one say Huzzah! Thank you Church of England for standing with traditional, biblical, Christian marriage.

Ok just a few more things. Yes that means once again that its time for something against feminism.

In this case I am going to link you to an article by Marlo Safi in The Spectator called:  All I dream of is becoming a tradwife.   Yes the article is humorous, and in case you’re wondering tradwife, you hipsters with your new fangled jive, is traditional wife. 


Oops did I do that?  Well go read the article it is great and well worth your time.

Yes! Another Robotic Overlords report it is amazing!



Biological robots, are you scared?  Well I for one welcome our biological Robotic Overlords. 

Lastly, and seriously, I am currently trying to ride out a bout of pneumonia which can be serious in person of my age.  I am desperately attempting to rest and stay out of the hospital.  Also my daughter is suffering from a virus infection so we are both running around with masks over our face so we don’t make each other worse.  I covet your prayers for my family’s health and recovery.  Thank you.

Frenetic Friday


From the lethargic mire a hand struggles, rises, grasps the (metaphorical) pen and begins to write.

Oh yeah I have a blog maybe I should write something seeing its a new year and all.

Speaking of New Year’s resolutions have you finally floundered and given up? I have made one resolution this year and that was not to make any resolutions. So far I have been able to keep this but we’ll if I can keep it.

If you are planning on reading the bible in a year Ligonier Ministries has a series of plans you maybe interested in you can find them here: Bible Reading for 2020.

Personally I have started the M’Cheyne audio bible podcast, ESV, as I find I easier to listen to the bible being read to me. I especially like this podcast as it is is just an articulate speaker reading the various verses. There is no commentary unlike some other bible reading podcasts.

But this is a Frenetic Friday so let’s get into it.

Yes here we are the first culture war post of the year. And I am about to make a suggestion, there is a term that has been used during oh at least the passed decade maybe more that I think needs to be retired. Post Christian culture. Let’s quit pretending that Christian culture is still the guiding force behind anything in the western world. We have slipped into pagan culture whether you call it secular, post modern, or whatever it no longer has any basis in Christianity and is actively opposed to it. The war has started and we are still trying to appease the enemy like Chamberlain did in England.

So on yesterday’s briefing (ht: Albert Mohler) a new app was discussed this app matches men and women who want to be parents. The article (click link) tells how some women who want children, but not marriage per se are looking for not just a sperm donor but someone who will also commit to being a father to the child. So all the benefits of marriage but none of the commitment. Or as they put in the article:

“that match would-be parents who want to share custody of a child without any romantic expectations. It’s a lot like a divorce, without the wedding or the arguments.”

So here we are marriage has become a non thing. And this is what I mean by by saying post christian should no longer be the designator of what the contemporary culture is, christianity defined what a family should be. That is no longer the case. Now the pagan culture defined what is family and it makes sure that it isn’t what is defined by scripture.

Well moving forward now that we are in the “twenties” I suppose it wouldn’t hurt to take a look at how our future over lords are progressing in their overthrow of humanity. And for that we turn to Japan. Here is the latest:

And with that dear readers I bid you good night. Thanks for sticking around with me.

Frenetic Good Friday


Well it has been awhile since I have done a Frenetic Friday post but let’s get to it.

In case you’re living under a rock or in denial this is what is referred to as Holy Week. And today is Good Friday, and more on that later. But I hope that you did notice that as is the norm the various “shows” on Christianity has appeared on various streaming services. The newest one that I noticed is Jesus: Countdown to Calvary made in 2018 and starring Hugh Bonneville. This is playing on Netflixs. And yes I watched and as expected the idea that Jesus was the divine Son of God or the fulfillment of prophecy was completely played down or not mentioned at all. What I did notice was how it was claimed that Jesus came proclaiming a message of, wait for it, “social justice”. I am not really surprised at this an neither should you be if you’ve been keeping up with any of the “social justice” debates that have been going on in Twitter and elsewhere. Just be aware that this and other messages of the same sort will be playing this time especially since Easter or the Sunday celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus however you wish to refer to it draws near.

And speaking of heretical things have you heard about PreachersNSneakers? It is an Instagram account that has pictures of various “hipster” preachers and the expensive sneakers they are wearing. I am not talking about some $150 dollar Nikes here. No, how about $3000 for an off white pair of Jordan 1 from Europe. Or $1100 “Gucci” slippers?

I don’t mind a pastor being well dressed but I have to call into question exactly why do they need that expensive foot wear. What do you think where should this money have gone to?

And keeping with the Good Friday theme, as well as heretical notions a female Roman Catholic theologian has written a book called “Creation and the Cross: The Mercy of God for a Planet in Peril” In it Elizabeth Johnson maintains that Anselm‘s satisfaction theory of atonement was completely wrong. Johnson maintains that Anselm based it upon “the political system of the day” and that God’s mercy doesn’t call for a bloody and violent death for our sins. Basically atonement needs to be removed from what Christ did. <source>

Rather than have me bumble through why the atonement is necessary I shall point you to these resources:




And here is a list of resources from Monergism: Penal Substitutionary Atonement

And a list of resources from The Highway: TThe Atonement of Christ

Finally something from Toplady:

Goodnight.

I have been a bad boy.


So this is a strange way to come back to blogging. But I will freely admit that I have violated a social media law committed a faux pas if you will to wit I used the term “learn to code”.

Now if you’re a Twitter newbie or eschew social media entirely, and bravo if you do, then you’re probably unaware of Twitter’s obscure rules that they use to define who gets to say what.

So it was interesting to see this in my morning email:

Hi keachfan,
Your account, @keachfan has been locked for violating the Twitter Rules.
Please note that repeated violations may lead to a permanent suspension of your account. Proceed to Twitter now to fix the issue with your account.

As I pondered what I might of posted and I freely admit that I can be a bit of a gadfly at times, I couldn’t imagine that the little circle of Reformed Tweeters that I stalk could have sent me to Twitter Purgatory.

Obviously the only way to find out was to click on the link provided and see what the offending post was which I did. And it turns out that it wasn’t the Reformed Tweeters rather it was a comment I posted on a Ben Shapiro tweet. That’s right I posted: “Or learn to code.” Now I halfway remembered this article from the daily caller: Twitter Restricts People Who Tweet Learn To Code but I thought me, they are going to block an obscure anonymous Twitter account? And the answer was you betcha! Twitter informed me that I was to be shut off from all posting for two weeks and that the most I could do was DM or I could delete the tweet. I thought about it and deleted the tweet. Well that wasn’t the end not at all I still had to stay in Twitter Purgatory for twelve hours to teach me a lesson.

So friends what lesson did I learn? Well it was a reminder that Twitter isn’t a place where you can say anything, no they reserve the right to restrict your speech (tweets) for any reason they want make no mistake even if I was using “learn to code” to some young person wanting to transition from one job to another I would have been convicted of harassment under their rules. And there is no telling what other phrase might become forbidden because they decide what is right or wrong based on a strictly subjective standard.

So keep in mind if your weltanschauung isn’t what Twitter has decided is in its best interests then locking, shadow banning, even deleting your account is all within their purview. They control the horizontal, they control the vertical, you don’t.

Why Christian Movies are so terrible~Jared C. Wilson


Last month, while out at the movies, my wife and I happened to see trailers for two new movies produced by and for the Christian market — “faith-based films” they call them these days. Both trailers distilled their respective stories down to about 3 minutes of earnest dialogue snippets, tear-streamed dramatic moments, and inspirational footage of sports (basketball in one, track in the other). Throughout both trailers — which we saw on two different days before two different movies — the audience was audibly laughing. I was cringing. The paint-by-numbers aesthetic of the new wave of Christian movies persists in making the faith appear trite, inauthentic, corny, and — worst of all, as far as the culture goes — uncool.

Why despite all the gains made in technology and budgeting can’t Christians make good movies?

I know, I know — people always try to come up with exceptions. But there aren’t any, really. Every now and again some well-meaning brother or sister will say to me, “This one’s different. You gotta see it. It’s not like the others.” And then it is. It painfully, painfully is. Why does it seem like the only good “Christian movies” are the ones made by the world’s artists with Christian themes (The Passion of the Christ, Silence, etc.)? Some thoughts:

Special Saturday night


Hello dear readers can you tell that it is getting closer to Christmas? Oh I don’t mean the congestion around the mall or the Amazon packages being stolen from the front porch. No I mean the attack against Jesus, and all things Christmas which leads us right to culture wars.

Yes here’s the first shot across the bow. An associate professor at Minnesota State University, Dr. Eric Spankle posted a tweet saying:

The Virgin birth story is about an all-knowing, all-powerful deity impregnating a human teen. There is no definition of consent that would include that scenario. Happy Holidays.*

When it was pointed out that in the scriptures Mary actually did give consent, (Luke 1:26-38) his response was:

The biblical god regularly punished disobedience. The power difference (deity vs mortal) and the potential for violence for saying “no” negates her “yes”. To put someone in this position is unethical abuse of power at best and grossly predatory at worst.

I will just put Mary’s response right here:
And Mary said,

“My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name. Luke 1:46-49

Obviously, Mary thought this was a blessing.

Now let’s turn from from the sublime to a couple examples of the ridiculous.

Do you recognize these vegetables?

These are the characters from the show called Veggie Tales. If you’re not familiar with these characters they are a bunch of vegetables that tell stories based upon Biblical foundations.

Well at one California college, Cal State San Marcos, in their “Whiteness Forum” an event that exposes the ” myriad of ways that white supremacy remains front and center in the U.S. social and political context.”

In this forum students pointed to the show Veggie Tales and said because the villians had obvious ethnic accents while the heroes didn’t Veggie Tales was promoting racism with the heroes being “white”.

Eric Metaxes former writer and narrator for Veggie Tales said this:

“All vegetables are part of one race, even though they are of many colors,” Metaxas said. “They are all descended from the same parents — the Adam and Eve of vegetables, who foolishly ate a forbidden fruit (irony?) and screwed everything up for all vegetables descended from them. At least I’m pretty sure that’s the story. *

Multiracial vegetables I weep for this generation.

And from one cartoon show to another.

Yes that is Herbie the dentist elf and Rudolph the red nose reindeer. This show was first released on December 6, 1964 and never mind how old I was. Anyway this cartoon has been a staple of the Christmas season for many years. And yet in a recent Huffington Post video Rudolph triggered them.

Some of the complaints are that Donner is an abusive father by the way he treats Rudolph, and sexist because he forbids his wife from joining him to hunt for Rudolph.

Santa is abusive and no diversely or inclusivity training evident and so an HR nightmare.

And that is the mildest of the responses to a 54 year old movie.

I wonder how soon it will be until Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer is put on a list of banned movies never to be broadcasted again, or if allowed shown with a disclaimer warning parents. Or even more radical fed into a computer and all the wrongness taken out or changed. They’ll probably make the Abominable Snowman a vegan.

Well now we are moving from animation to current buzzwords.
Intersectionality is:

the theory that the overlap of various social identities, such as race, gender, and sexuality, contributes to the systemic oppression and discrimination experienced by an individual

I know that you may have been staying up late at night wondering what your possible intersectionality score possibly could be. Well wonder no longer from our friends on the internet the intersectionality calculator has been made. Now you can look up your score and ease your mind. The Intersectionality Calculator.

And in just your wondering I got a thirteen.

And last but certainly not least a myth of Christmas debunked.

Jesus wasn’t born in a stable.

According to Ian Paul at psephizo.com because of medieval misunderstanding and a general ignorance of first century Israel the idea that Jesus was alone in some sort of stable/barn like structure surrounded by nothing more than animals with Joseph and Mary is completely wrong. In fact it is more than likely that he was surrounded by not just his parents but by Joseph and Mary’s extended family that had also traveled Bethlehem to be registered.

One of the more interesting points the article makes is that the animals were normally kept inside the same structure as the living quarters. See the drawing below.

As you can see the animals are kept in the lower level while the family occupy the floor above. It would have been in this upper level that Mary would have given birth surrounded by family.

Read the article here: Once more Jesus was not birn in a stable.

Good night.

Frenetic Friday


Since my insomnia is going full bore and I am occupied with the coming season this will probably be finished by Saturday morning instead of Friday night. But be that as it may I have a selection of articles for your perusal.

From the Daily Mail (Nov. 24, 2018) comes a new scientific research that suggests after a huge catastrophe,

that we sprang from a single pair of adults after a catastrophic event almost wiped out the human race.

These bar codes, or snippets of DNA that reside outside the nuclei of living cells, suggest that it’s not just people who could have come from a single pair of beings, but nine out of every 10 animal species, too

Just a single pair of adults after a great catastrophe I’ll just leave this here.

And while we are talking about ancient history this just in from Israel they have found Pontius Pilate’s ring.

The ring itself was found fifty years ago but with expert cleaning and microscopic examination the archeologist determined that “of Pilate” was inscribed on the ring in greek.

Let’s turn from history to present day.

This is John Allen Chau the young missionary that was killed on the North Sentinel Island. Now recently there has been a rash of articles both praising and damning this young man for his actions. But I think that Tim Challes has written a well crafted article that is worth reading about this missionary and what we should think about what he had done. Go here: On the death of John Allen Chau by Tim Challes

Yes it is time once again to go down into the trenches and prepare for another skirmish in the culture wars.

Our first report comes from Florida in particular the Chasco Middle School where a transgender “boy” is in the habit of walking into the boys locker room literally as their pants are down with no warning. The school officials instructed a male P.E. teacher to supervise the potentially undressed female in the locker room. Using common sense he refused to put himself in a position to “observe a nude or potentially undressed minor female”.

I would like to point out that a few years ago that if a “school official” had suggested that a male teacher must observe a nude minor the parents of the school district would have run him out of town on a rail. However in this case and the times being what they are the teacher was disciplined and sent to another school ” for not doing his job in the locker room”. The teacher has appealed his discipline and sought council. But keep in mind that with the “alphabet soup” activists that are driving the changes and controlling the NEA this sort of idiocy will become common place. < Source>

Yes that flag is flying once again but in an unexpected place. What place is that? Why the Evangelical Theological Society that is where! In an article at CBMW Colin Smothers critiques a paper entitled “Walking across Gender in the Spirit? The Vocation of the Church and the Transgendered Christian“. Now in full disclosure the author of the paper, Dr. Andy Draycott has publicly retracted the paper and has offered a public statement where he unequivocally affirms that God has created humans as male ad female.

Of course the question must be asked why would a society dedicated to Evangelical Theology even allow such a presentation?  And yet it appeared there.    Well I think that Colin  Smothers answers that question in his critique which you can read here

And this last bit of news I am unsure whether to put it under Robotic Over Lords or Culture Wars but since it is technology based and not real robotics lets keep it under culture.

No this isn’t a japanese version of “Tiny Dancer” this is a hologram of Hatsune Miku a virtual teenage girl who was “married”, yes I said  “married” to Akihiko Kondo, a 35-year-old middle school teacher in Tokyo.  Gatebox the company who provides the device also provided this demo video.

Now Gatebox issued a marriage license but it isn’t legal as Akihiko found out but he still went through with the ceremony which cost about $18,000  and was attended by his disproving family about forty guests in all.  I suppose he promised to love honor and keep her power supply charged.

Technology, we can make the girl of your dreams either virtually or in warm silicon.

Well that is it for Frenetic Friday good night.

Insomnia Saturday Night


Well I promised a post and since the voices in my head won’t let me sleep let’s get on with the show.

From a reader of the blog comes a story from Great Britain where in a dispensational horror story a British company wants to insert RIF chips into their employees.

Biohax a swedish firm specializing in this microchip implantation promotes this as an security measure for firms. The British trade union says it is an imposition on the employees right to privacy and is just another way to micromanage the employees by the companies. Note: this technology has already been put to use in the United States. (Source)

Yes we have another Robotic Over Lords story for you tonight.

Meet Habitat by Honestbee:

This Singapore store is completely cashless and is run by robots. Using the honestbee app will allow you access to the store, where you can scan the items that you want into your shopping cart using their app and pay for them there. But wait, there is more this store started out as a grocery delivery store where you shipped via the app and robots packaged your groceries into a recyclable bag. Now the store has expanded to laundromat and eatery. Here is a video of the robots packing up the ordered food.

The robots can process 300 customers an hour! Coming soon to a Walmart near you? Maybe. (Source)

Feminism ruins everything

Does math perpetuate “Unearned White Male Privilege” well according to an Illinois professor it does. Rochelle Gutierrez, from the University of Illinois wrote:

On many levels, mathematics itself operates as Whiteness. Who gets credit for doing and developing mathematics, who is capable in mathematics, and who is seen as part of the mathematical community is generally viewed as White (Source)

And here is the bonus point Rochelle Gutierrez is a math teacher. Think about that as you send your children to university.

And lastly tonight we have an article about a renegade Episcopal Bishop. Ho hum, what’s new you might think. But wait this is different his rebellion is against the Episcopal Church’s new rules.
The Episcopal Church and Western Society have been hijacked by the ‘Gay Rights Agenda,’ which is very well organized, very strategic, very well financed, and very powerful,”The Rev. William Love wrote in the eight-page letter.

The Episcopal Church is just three weeks, at the time of this article, from finalizing the rules for same sex marriage which would take place on December 2. Love has ordered his diocese not to perform any same sex marriage ceremony.

According to The Rev. Susan Russell, an activist for an inclusive church based in the Los Angeles diocese, Love is the only U.S. bishop refusing to comply with the new resolution.

Certain parishioners gathered outside of St. Andrew’s church in Albany to ceremonially burn Bishop Love’s letter. One lesbian, who said she felt very comfortable at St Andrew’s church said:

You come to a church looking for comfort and love and you’re told that you’re acting in concert with Satan? Anybody who doesn’t fit in with his vision of how things should be is unsafe because of his letter and his actions.

William Love Contra Mundum

Good Night.
