Frenetic Friday


Yes it’s true, at long last the first Frenetic Friday of the year.

So as regards to politics well frankly I am waiting until the old president leaves and the new president is sworn in before I start paying attention too much to all of this however, I do want to point you to this podcast by Mike Rowe.  He’s the dirty jobs guy in case you didn’t know and he has a podcast called The Way I heard it with Mike Rowe.  But I would especially point you to Episode 36 titled: “Oh Brother” it does put a few things in perspective.  Give it a listen.

So have you’ve heard of Camille Pagilia right?  She is famous or infamous for her critic of feminism but here in this video she points out that transgender mania is actually a sign of cultural collapse and points to history that shows this what happens before the culture ends.

Speaking of marriage let me introduce to the newest couple, I mean  single, I mean couple, okay I am confused what is going on here?  Erika Anderson stands on rooftop in Brooklyn and marries herself to herself.  What?  Yep it seems that the latest trend in marriage is not a same sex couple, not  multiple partners (polygamy/polyamory), nope the latest trend is marrying yourself.  Instead of two becoming one, the one is becoming one.  And as Rebecca Traister, author of All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation says:  “It’s not a legal process — you won’t get any tax breaks for marrying yourself. It’s more a “rebuke” of tradition.”  No kidding.  But it appears to be a semi lucrative business as “on the website I Married Me, you can buy a DIY marriage kit: For $50, you get a sterling silver ring, ceremony instructions, vows, and 24 “affirmation cards” to remind you of your vows over time. For $230, you can get the kit with a 14-karat gold ring.”  <source>

BTW in 2013 in an blog post on the Pyromaniac’s Blog Frank Turk predicted this very thing based on the rise of same sex marriage.  See here

Also a sad good by to one of the more articulate and erudite bloggers Frank Turk.  He has decided to close shop and leave blogging and twitter.  His farewell post is here:  The End  I owe much to Frank he along with Phil Johnson and Dan Phillips alway made me think deeper and clearer even if I didn’t agree with them.  Farewell sir, God speed.

And good night to you all.

 

Frenetic Friday


From the eighty-sixth floor of the Empire State building the man of bronze’s golden eyes widened, turning to his five companions he said: “It’s Frenetic Friday!”

Sometimes I think that it is all a great conspiracy.  Take for instance this:

This is a picture from Babylon Bee where they satirically write that Elevation Church is putting in water slides to speed up baptisms.
Then Snopes that bastion of truth and internet debunking chimes in with a post about Babylon Bee and how it is a satire website and no Elevation Church isn’t really putting in a water slide.

Then there is this:.

Yep there it is they are getting baptized by going down a water slide.  Folks I can’t make this stuff up,

From there let’s go to Portland Oregon.  In specific let’s go to Pips Original Doughnuts and Chai where they have advertised for help with one proviso if you are vegan or vegetarian you need not apply.  Here is the ad they placed in the paper:

BASIC requirements: ( PLEASE DO NOT APPLY unless you meet or exceed 1-6)
1. You love serving people and have a friendly, outgoing personality but understand
 when to be chatty and when to move the line along. -We don’t need another moody 
hipster providing lame service in Portland.
2. One year experience working quickly and accurately in a fast-paced food service job.
3. Basic barista skills: Steaming milk & pouring a basic heart. IF you show promise and
 meet or exceed all other requirements and we think you are a good fit, we will help
 refine your skills.
4. Stamina, strength & endurance. It can be very busy and you must be able to lift at 
least 50 lbs on a regular basis.
5. Enjoy working in a fast-paced, multifaceted, & dynamic environment with a tight team.
6. No non-medical, non-religious dietary restrictions that would stop you from
 tasting, accurately representing our food and maintaining quality control to 
maintain the highest standards of food safety and excellence. We serve products 
with meat ( including bacon) nuts, diary and our doughnuts contain wheat gluten.

 

Yep it is number six that has raised the ire of the vegans and vegetarians in Portland.  And boy howdy they are out for um wheat grass?  But the owners are standing firm or as they put it how can you tell if the quality of the product is good if you can’t eat the product?  I just wonder how long it is going to be before the tolerance police close them down.  But wait I forgot they’re not a Christian baker.  <source>

Now to our neighbors up in the north from the Daily Wire is a report that the University of Toronto is suspending temporarily the transgender bathroom policy they enacted because of  two separate instances where males (Oh no he is using binary based nouns!) were caught holding there cell phones over the female students shower stalls and taking pictures.  Something I could have told them was going to happen but they didn’t consult me at the time.  In the mean time the University has designated some bathrooms only for males, some only for females and some gender neutral.

Here are two of the student’s responses to the change:

One freshman told the paper that the issue “is not strictly about someone taking pictures; it is about a violation of the trust that our residence experience is based on.”

Another student told the paper that she was “disappointed” that the incident happened. “I have more faith in people than that,” she said. <source>

You know speaking of perverted things this popped up in my news alerts and I was so gob smacked by it that I had to share with you:

A US court has ruled it is legal to film up a woman’s skirt without consent due to a “gap” in the law surrounding invasion of privacy.

Brandon Lee Gary was prosecuted in 2013 on a single count of “unlawful eavesdropping and surveillance” after he was witnessed several times on CCTV footage taking video recordings with a mobile phone beneath the skirt of a customer while she was shopping.

Gary, who was employed by the supermarket when the filming occurred, admitted to the charge at a trial in Houston County Superior court where he was found guilty.

A spilt ruling at Georgia’s Court of Appeal on 15 July reversed the invasion of privacy conviction against a Gary, after he appealed on the basis that he did not violate state law as it is written,

In Court of Appeal documents published by US news site Patch, Judge Elizabeth Branch writes: “The question before this court, however is not whether the defendant’s conduct was offensive; it is not whether a person walking in a public place has a reasonable expectation of privacy as to certain areas of her body; and it is not whether the victim’s privacy was violated.

“Rather, the only issue presented by this appeal is whether the defendant’ s conduct constitutes a criminal invasion of privacy…”

“[I]t is regrettable that no law currently exists which criminalizes Gary’s reprehensible conduct,” she writes.

“Unfortunately, there is a gap in Georgia’s criminal statutory scheme, in that our law does not reach all of the disturbing conduct that has been made possible by ever-advancing technology.” <source>

Frankly I think the Georgia legislators had best be getting their work done and close that gap.

And last but not least a little something from Prager U:

Good Night!

Frenetic Friday


And now to continue to document our descent into moral insanity is your host Keachfan!  Well folks we have a really good show tonight so with out further to do here we go!

I don’t know about you but I am tired of the transgender revolution yet it seem to appear every day in my news feed.  So let’s take a look at a few new bits of information to come across my desk.

First this:

I find it disingenuous how he quotes the golden rule but ignores what the rest of the scripture says regarding how God created them male and female. It just shows that his “Christianity” is subservient to his political career.

And then reality smacks you in the face.

What do you do when you work for the ACLU and your daughter asks you why are you forcing her to go to a bathroom with boys in it?

“I have shared my personal experience of having taken my elementary school age daughters into a women’s restroom when shortly after three transgender young adults, over six feet [tall] with deep voices, entered,” said Maya Dillard Smith, interim director of the Georgia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. “My children were visibly frightened, concerned about their safety and left asking lots of questions for which I, like many parents, was ill-prepared to answer, <source>

Well in the case of Maya Dillard Smith she left the ACLU to start her own advocacy group that seeks to find a middle ground, which is also the best name of her website. On it you can see this video:

Of course not everyone in the trans-community are interested in having a middle ground and one has responded in a verbally abusive manner. You can read that if you so desire here fair warning the language used is rough.

And now a quick message from the Religion of Peace

I’m sure you saw this on all the major news networks, in a village in Egypt a mob of 300 men stripped an elderly Coptic Christian woman and made her march through the street.  Her crime?  There was a rumor, a rumor mind you, that her son was having a relationship with a ,Muslim woman.  Yes, no, actual evidence was produced but that doesn’t matter after all a Christian was involved!  Or wasn’t as the case may be.  And to top it all off they also burned down seven houses of some Coptic Christians.  <source >

Politics!

It had to be done.  Well over at the Gospel Coalition there is this post by a member of Thabiti Anyabwile congregation on Evangelical Leaders: Tell Us to Vote for Clinton.   I completely disagree with this viewpoint.  However, Pastor Gabriel Hughes has provided a more articulate reason to disagree with the author’s statement.

Thabiti’s Hillary Problem

The following is a statement that was made on the WWUTT podcast on June 3, 2016. It was made into transcript form to be posted on this blog. Some of the wording may vary a bit.


On Thabiti Anyabwile’s blog through the Gospel Coalition website, he featured a guest post from Nick Rodriguez, fellow church member at Anacosta River Church in Washington D.C., the Southern Baptist church where Thabiti is a pastor. In that blog, Rodriguez gives six reasons why evangelical leaders should tell Christians to vote for Hillary Clinton. Read the rest here

Lastly something to cause End Time experts heart palpitations:
Good night!

Frenetic Friday


Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? Frenetic Friday knows.

A 200 non points if you recognize the quote.

Speaking of pop culture couple of things to note.  There is a movement on Twitter to give Captain America a boyfriend.  Yes folks the social justice warriors are at it again, a hero from the 1940’s they feel needs to be made gay.  But I really shouldn’t be surprised since it was done once before on the other side.  Yes DC took the original Green Lantern, Alan Scott, and to make him “current” made him gay.  Yes he too was a hero who had his origins in 1940.  But you know that appears to be the thing now heroes can’t be heroes any more take the current storyline for Captain America its been revealed that he is actually an agent of Hydra.  Hydra, the more Nazi than Nazi group created and led by the Red Skull, the group that Captain America originally fought and destroyed in WWII he is actually a member of Hydra.  BTW here is what Chris Evans the actor that played Captain America said:

Frankly that is the response of the 90% of the people who hear that.

Let me point you to this article over at the Federalist:  We Must Not Rest Until Every Superhero is Gay

And while we are at it let’s go to my favorite law group the ACLU.  Brigitte Amiri writing on the ACLU’s blog tells of a scenario where a bleeding pregnant woman goes into a Catholic run hospital and according to her is denied an abortion and instead left out in the parking lot bleeding until someone drives her to another hospital where the abortion is performed.  Because of this, and because of the policy of the Catholic run hospitals not to do abortions she wants the records of the hospitals seized by the government and investigated for more of these cases. Except what she is writing about isn’t the truth.

See the scenario described is where a pregnancy complications endanger both the mother and the child.  A situation that is extremely rare.  Dr. Donna Harrison, executive director of the American Association of Pro-Life obstetrician and Gynecologists says this:

The purpose of an elective abortion is to guarantee a dead baby. The purpose of separating the mother and the fetus in life threatening conditions is to try to save both the mother and her unborn child if possible, but at least save the mother. The ACLU is playing on the ignorance of what abortion actually is: a procedure designed to produce a dead baby.

Whoops!  Yes can’t have that whole saving the baby along with the mother somebody has to die and that somebody has to be the baby it seems.

And last two videos about college kids and how they say the darndest things.

Remember you’re paying for this education.

Frenetic Friday Night


Well I’ll be super amalgamated it is Frenetic Friday Night!

Well in the dark tea time of our soul it is time to take a look at the shift in the cultural norm to see what is the latest developments.

The current ruling by the federal government says that a high school in Chicago must open the girls locker room and showers to a biological male that thinks he is a girl.  So fourteen year old girls are forced to have a male watch them undress and shower and even have to watch him undress and join them in the shower.  Breibart news summed it up with this little list:

  • If you’re a boy who shows a picture of your penis to a girl in your class, you have likely violated both federal child pornography laws as well as local sexual harassment laws. If this happens consistently in your school, the school has violated Title IX.
  • If you’re a boy who says he’s a girl, the girl must be placed in position to see your penis and testicles. If the school does not allow this, the school has violated Title IX.
  • If you’re an adult who sexually touches a child with the consent of the child, you have committed a crime, since children are incapable of consent.
  • If you’re an adult who gives a child hormone therapy or surgery to prevent normal development of the genitals, with the consent of the child, you are a hero.

So you can say that this is the exact time when the federal government went insane.

In the same vein it turns out that a gay man adopted the man that he had fallen in love with.  He did this because five years ago they didn’t see gay marriage as a reality so in order to be together the elder adopted the younger.  Now they want an annulment of the adoption so they can get married because a judge has denied their marriage license because they are father and son.  Read the article here.

And south of the border in Brazil three lesbians have married each other.  Seems the Brazilian laws that legalize same sex marriage can be applied to polygamous unions too.  Funny I seem to have heard that somewhere before.  Seems the traditional marriage proponents may have gotten this one right.  Not that I am surprised.

Lastly in an article from the November 3 Washington Times it is reported that ‘Gay’ rape has increased among males in the military. It was reported that 12,000 men have reported being sexually assaulted and of those almost 4000 have reported being physically penetrated aka raped.  Because of the stigma involved in this it is suggested that they actual number of attacks could be higher.

Elaine Donnelly, who runs the Center for Military Readiness, said male-on-male sexual assaults have been increasing since Congress repealed the gay ban in 1993 and replaced it with “don’t ask, don’t tell,” which was erased by President Obama to allow openly gay service members.

“DoD figures have shown that most sexual assaults on men are perpetrated by other men, not women,” she said.  Read the full article here

Turning to politics an activist with Project Veritas took a hidden camera video of a Vassar administrator shredding a copy of the US Constitution after being told that it was “triggering” and only shredding it would make her feel better.

You can learn more about Project Veritas here

And since it has been a long time since we checked in with our Robotic Over Lords it is time to see what they are up to don’t you think?

Because of the forced increase in wages one restaurant CEO says that he foresees many of the jobs now done by people being replaced by robots.  Now that doesn’t mean we are going to see this:

Instead what will happen is that more digital kiosks will be present with touch screens where you can order and pay for your food.  Yes there may be a human cashier and cooks, although the cooking process could be automated also to some degree.  But actual people taking orders will decrease, and with the increase of digitalizing the ordering process including from your smart phone the need to staff these restaurants will decrease and there will be less jobs for those who would got to places such as this to learn needed job skills to get a foot hold in the job market.  You can read the article here:  Restaurant CEOs predict robots will replace over priced labor.

 

Thank you and good night.

 

 

 

Frenetic Friday: Profanation Of Marriage Day


I wasn’t going to post today, I owe John Avery a long over due review on his book “The Name Quest“. I have a post for Credo Covenant that I have been working on. So I am past due and have been playing catch-up. However the number one fan has expressed his displeasure and with the recent SCOTUS decision I thought better of not posting. So Wes this is your responsibility.

Here is the text of the fourteenth amendment:

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Section 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.

Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article

Got that? Because this is what the majority opinion is said to based upon.

You can read the entire thing here.

There are four separate dissents Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito.

All of them are worth looking at but I am going to highlight Alito’s comments.

The question in these cases, however, is not what States should do about same-sex marriage but whether the Constitution answers that question for them. It does not. The Constitution leaves that question to be decided by the people of each State.

Adherents to different schools of philosophy use different terms to explain why society should formalize mar- riage and attach special benefits and obligations to per- sons who marry. Here, the States defending their adherence to the traditional understanding of marriage have explained their position using the pragmatic vocabulary that characterizes most American political discourse. Their basic argument is that States formalize and promote marriage, unlike other fulfilling human relationships, in order to encourage potentially procreative conduct to take place within a lasting unit that has long been thought to provide the best atmosphere for raising children. They thus argue that there are reasonable secular grounds for restricting marriage to opposite-sex couples.

It is far beyond the outer reaches of this Court’s authority to say that a State may not adhere to the understanding of marriage that has long prevailed, not just in this country and others with similar cultural roots, but also in a great variety of countries and cultures all around the globe.

Today’s decision usurps the constitutional right of the people to decide whether to keep or alter the traditional understanding of marriage. The decision will also have other important consequences.

It will be used to vilify Americans who are unwilling to assent to the new orthodoxy. In the course of its opinion, the majority compares traditional marriage laws to laws that denied equal treatment for African-Americans and women. The implications of this analogy will be exploited by those who are determined to stamp out every vestige of dissent.

Perhaps recognizing how its reasoning may be used, the majority attempts, toward the end of its opinion, to reassure those who oppose same-sex marriage that their rights of conscience will be protected. We will soon see whether this proves to be true. I assume that those who cling to old beliefs will be able to whisper their thoughts in the recesses of their homes, but if they repeat those views in public, they will risk being labeled as bigots and treated as such by governments, employers, and schools.

The system of federalism established by our Constitution provides a way for people with different beliefs to live together in a single nation. If the issue of same-sex marriage had been left to the people of the States, it is likely that some States would recognize same-sex marriage and others would not. It is also possible that some States would tie recognition to protection for conscience rights. The majority today makes that impossible. By imposing its own views on the entire country, the majority facilitates the marginalization of the many Americans who have traditional ideas. Recalling the harsh treatment of gays and lesbians in the past, some may think that turnabout is fair play. But if that sentiment prevails, the Nation will experience bitter and lasting wounds.

I do not doubt that my colleagues in the majority sincerely see in the Constitution a vision of liberty that happens to coincide with their own. But this sincerity is cause for concern, not comfort. What it evidences is the deep and perhaps irremediable corruption of our legal culture’s conception of constitutional interpretation.

Most Americans—understandably—will cheer or lament today’s decision because of their views on the issue of same-sex marriage. But all Americans, whatever their thinking on that issue, should worry about what the majority’s claim of power portends. (Emphasis mine)

Of course no one is really surprised at this ruling, It was obvious from the beginning that the liberals on the court would go this way.  But take it for granted that it won’t end here this is a pandorian event and ultimately the box will be empty.

Foreseeing this the Southern Baptist Convention on June 17 adopted “On the Call to Public Witness on Marriage” resolution.  The statement reads:

“No matter how the Supreme Court rules, the Southern Baptist Convention reaffirms its unwavering commitment to its doctrinal and public beliefs concerning marriage,”

and

“Southern Baptists love our neighbors and extend respect in Christ’s name to all people, including those who may disagree with us about the definition of marriage and the public good.”

Ronnie Floyd president of the Southern Baptists referred to this as a Bonhoeffer moment saying:

“While some evangelicals … may be bowing down to the deception of the inclusiveness of same-sex marriage or marriage in their churches, we will not bow down, nor will we be silent.”

“I want to remind everyone today, humbly, the Supreme Court of the United States is not the final authority, nor is the culture itself, but the Bible is God’s final authority about marriage and on this book we stand,”

I’m going to end this post with what James White posted on his Facebook page on June 22

How to Glorify God on Marriage Profanation Day

  1. Begin the day with prayer and Bible reading, submitting your mind to the Lordship of Christ.
  2. f you are married, pray for your spouse, expressing thanks to God for your marriage, and imploring the Almighty to protect your marriage so that it may be a witness to the world of what God intended.
  3. Review the teaching of Jesus on the foundation of marriage in Matthew 19:4-6. Note especially that the Creator Himself established gender, the role of the husband, of the wife, of the father, and the mother, and that the only relationship He will ever bless is one that fits in this paradigm: one man, one woman.
  4. Pray for grace to love rebel sinners who will be rejoicing in the profaning of God’s good gifts, for you, too, once hated what is good and loved what is evil. Remember, you have been redeemed from the world, transferred from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light, and that all of grace.
  5. Pray for the younger generation that has been robbed of transcendent meaning and purpose. Pray for God’s people, those young folks still being called out of the darkness into the light, for they will face a far more difficult world than most of us older followers of Jesus in the United States have ever faced.
  6. Do not look backwards and long for the “good ol’ days” when a semblance of moral sanity prevailed by God’s grace in our land. Realize in the midst of judgment we are called to be salt and light.
  7. Go out and tell someone Jesus is Lord. Lord over all of life. Lord over creation, Lord over man’s institutions, Lord over all human authorities. Be salt. Be light. The darkness is deepening daily, and that means our light is all that much more necessary. The denizens of the darkness will try to extinguish that light. They cannot.

I can only say maranatha even so come Lord Jesus!

Thank you and come back next week God willing–Keachfan

Frenetic Friday


For what we are about to see next, we must enter quietly into the realm of genius. Welcome to Frenetic Friday.

Dude looks like a Lady

By now you’ve seen the Vanity Fair cover of Bruce “call me Caitlyn” Jenner. When I first saw it an artist friend of mine posted the perfect meme:
image

Which says it all regarding that picture.

However that isn’t all to say about the matter. Submitted for your approval:  Dr. James White was on Dr. Drew’s  HLN show.  He barely got to say anything but what he did say was profound.  Apologia Studios was kind enough to put it together in a video.

Now take a look at this video where Dr. Drew and his co-host discuss what James said, or rather what he didn’t say.

Dr. Drew after show

Dr. White has posted on Facebook an offer to come on the Dividing Line and discuss what they were talking about, or at least what they were trying to talk about.

Robert A.J. Gagnon in response to Bruce Jenner writes about the face of the new anti-somatic Gnosticism:

The sick national conspiracy to pretend that Bruce Jenner is a woman because he is mentally confused, has surgically mutilated his male body, and received plastic reconstruction surgery to give him a not entirely successful appearance as a woman, to the fanfare of the twisted leftwing elite and with the financial windfall of a reality TV show. For that he gets an award for “courage”: “Shortly after the cover reveal, ESPN announced that Caitlyn, a former Olympian, will receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the EPSY Awards in July.” The man needs help; instead he gets validation for his neurosis. This is not love. This is functional hate.  Read more here  HT:  Steve Hays

And now a bit from the sport page:

Have you ever heard of an MMA (fe)male fighter called Fallon Fox?   I didn’t know him from Adam’s off ox myself since i don’t really keep up with the sport much less the female competitors.  Fox is a transgender fighter and this is the interview given after he broke the orbital bone of his last opponent.

Tamikka Brents said,

“I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life.”

“I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night. I can’t answer whether it’s because [he] was born a man or not, because I’m not a doctor,” she stated. “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. ”

His “grip was different,” she added. “I could usually move around in the clinch against…females but couldn’t move at all in Fox’s clinch.”

last year, UFC announcer Joe Rogan made his opinion unambiguously and graphically clear, saying on his podcast that a transgendered man would “have all the bone structure that comes with” being a man. “You have bigger hands, you have bigger shoulder joints.”

Speaking to LifeSiteNews, military veteran Jeff Nader, who has fought for UFC competitor Bellator, said that “Fallon Fox has had the benefits of being a man for most of his life. [He has] bone density, muscle mass, and other physical benefits that one gets from being a man. You can’t have that, and then make a minor adjustment — basically, a cosmetic adjustment — and suddenly claim to be a woman.”

“Nothing can take away from the fact that you are physically a man. Mentally and emotionally, who knows — but physically, he’s a man.” <source>  HT: Calvinist Batman

The Marriage Debate continues

Changing in slightly in direction here is an article by Matthew Parris of the Spectator:

As a Gay Athiest, I  want to see the Church oppose Same-Sex Marriage.

I see. So now we have the result of the Irish referendum on gay marriage, and now we’ve heard the Roman Catholic Church’s chastened response, we shall have to rewrite Exodus 32, which (you may remember) reports Moses’ (and God’s) furious reaction to the nude dancing and heretical worship of Moloch in the form of a golden calf: the Sin of the Calf in the Hebrew literature. Moses had come down from Mount Sinai bringing God’s commandments written on two tablets of stone.

‘And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses’ anger waxed hot…

‘And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.’

Let me have a crack at the revised version right away:

‘And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the Irish referendum’s huge majority for gay marriage, and the dancing: and Moses’ alarm was palpable…

‘And he took a copy of the Pink Paper and, flourishing it, said, “We have to stop and have a reality check, not move into denial of the realities.

‘”I appreciate how these naked revellers feel on this day. That they feel this is something that is enriching the way they live. I think it is a social revolution.

‘”We need to find a new language to connect with a whole generation of young people,” the prophet concluded; then, casting off his garments, Moses said, “Hey, lead me to the coolest gay bar in the camp.”’  Read more here

Robot OverLord Alert

How do you feel about hospitals?  I’m not too keen but then again I’ve been in and out of hospitals too many times this year.  But when you have surgery do you want your anesthesia delivered via automaton?  In this WA hospital you get to meet Dr. Robot

Thank you ladies and gentlemen that is all for Frenetic Friday.
