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.

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.

Frenetic Friday


Once again the sound of Liberty Bell peals out and the tatterdemalion stumbles towards you saying:

Ladies and Gentlemen it is a distinct pleasure to once again post a Frenetic Friday.  And we have a good one for you.

So those of you who are living in Portland have probably seen this:  (warning language)

It is nice to see these thugs get a little comeuppance now if Portland’s mayor would just get a backbone and do the same.

Ligioner Ministries has once again gifted us with The State of Theology

I seriously urge you to go to the website and examine what Evangelicals believe about theology and the Bible.

 

 

 

Yes you know what that means the Robotic Over Lords has stepped u[ their world domination case in point:

And with that terrifying video I bid you good night until the next Frenetic Friday.

Robert Gagnon and the Revoice Conference


Doug Wilson kindly posted this by Robert Gagnon regarding the Revoice Conference. This is a fair and balanced read and frankly more people should read it so with that in mind…

While I am glad for the fact that persons at the upcoming Revoice Conference (July 26-28, St. Louis, in a PCA venue) and those who align with the “Spiritual Friendship” program want to refrain from engaging in same-sex intercourse and thereby uphold this part of the orthodox witness, I have seven consequential concerns about their views.
1. Inadequate engagement with the need for “renewal of the mind” as regards homosexual desires. Is there any asking of: “What is the false narrative that gives these impulses particular strength? Why am I viewing a person of the same sex as a sexual complement or counterpart to my own sex? Why am I aroused by the distinctive sexual features of my own sex, by what I already have? Am I thinking of myself as only half of my own sex? What kind of strategies for renewing my mind can I use to counter this false narrative beyond ‘washed and waiting’?” Instead, the benefits of a generalized “gay” perspective (minus the sex) are celebrated or lifted up. Even if one’s attractions may not change with such an evaluation, they can be disempowered by exposing the lie that lies behind attempts to gratify same-sex desire or (for “transgenders,” so-called) to deny one’s biological sex altogether. There is more to be addressed here than refraining from homosexual sex.

Read the rest of it here: Concerns with the upcoming Revoice Conference and Spiritual Friendship Folk

Frenetic Friday


Well, well, well its Friday once again and I do believe we have a really big show for you tonight. So away we go!


Our first item of the night is this new study that has found that women are hard wired to find well meaning SEXIST men more attractive. (emphasis mine)  And why is this so?  Well according to the scientists who did the study women think that such men are more likely protect them, provide for them and commit to a relationship.  So what is considered sexist according to the study?  if they are chivalrous or think women need a man to protect them.  So think about this.  If you’ve been taught to say open the door for a lady, stand when a woman enters a room, remove your hat when speaking to a lady., in times of danger protect the women before yourself.    All this is a form of benevolent sexism.  Or manners as taught by your grandfather and grandmother, or in my case father and mother if you were fortunate to have this happen to you.  (if you were raised in the south  manners are part of the culture and this is the norm.)  But wait there is more it seems that even women who consider themselves strong feminists showed the same preferences in the study by British and US researchers.   That must really grind their gears. <source>

 

 

 

 

So have you ever seen this skit:

If you have you’ll recognize it as one of the classic Monty Python sketches.  Many is the time that I laughed myself silly over such skits.  Well according the head of comedy at the BBC, Shane Allen, Monty Python  wouldn’t get on the BBC because:

If you’re going to assemble a team now it’s not going to be six Oxbridge white blokes,” Allen said in June. “It’s going to be a diverse range of people who reflect the modern world.”

Terry Gilliam a member of the troupe and an American said in response to the claim that Monty Python was too white said:

I no longer want to be a white male, I don’t want to be blamed for everything wrong in the world: I tell the world now I’m a black lesbian. … My name is Loretta and I’m a BLT, a black lesbian in transition.”
“[Allen’s] statement made me so angry, all of us so angry,” he said. “Comedy is not assembled, it’s not like putting together a boy band where you put together one of this, one of that everyone is represented.”<source>

Now let’s go to the Pacific Northwest


Ah Seattle really you can’t find a more liberal city unless you’re on the east coast or in California.  Well seems that Seattle to protect the environment has placed a ban on plastic straws.  That means all the fast food restaurants and other restaurants have to go to either a paper of a paper/plastic composite straw.  Or you have a note from a doctor that  states you must use a plastic drinking straw.  And if you don’t have that note, well that is a $250 fine.  <source>

And last but not least this:

The blurb below says this:

No one is born white. But while there is no biological basis for a white race, whiteness is real. What’s more, whiteness as a way of being in the world has been parasitically joined to Christianity, and this is the ground of many of our problems today. It is time to redouble the efforts of the church and its institutions to muster well-informed, gospel-based initiatives to fight racialized injustice and overcome the heresy of whiteness.

Written by a world-class roster of scholars, Can “White” People Be Saved? develops language to describe the current realities of race and racism. It challenges evangelical Christianity in particular to think more critically and constructively about race, ethnicity, migration, and mission in relation to white supremacy.

Historical and contemporary perspectives from Africa and the African diaspora prompt fresh theological and missiological questions about place and identity. Native American and Latinx experiences of colonialism, migration, and hybridity inspire theologies and practices of shalom. And Asian and Asian American experiences of ethnicity and class generate transnational resources for responding to the challenge of systemic injustice. With their call for practical resistance to the Western whiteness project, the perspectives in this volume can revitalize a vision of racial justice and peace in the body of Christ.<source>

And let me remind you of this:

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.  Romans 1:16 (emphasis mine)

 

Frenetic Friday


Well I am overly caffeinated and the only thing on the idiot box is Dune.  And while that is a temptation to be sure (The spice must flow!).  But it has been a week since I have written on the blog and I know that you probably want a wrap of the week’s events so here is Frenetic Friday.

So let’s talk about California and in specific some of the new laws.  Assembly bill 2943 is a bill that if made into law would make it illegal for  conversion therapy regarding gender or same-sex attraction calling it a fraudulent practice.  So if passed and someone with gender issues or same-sex attractions came to a pastor of a church and asked for help with these issues the pastor by law wouldn’t be able to help the person.    In fact you could not even give that person a bible as the words in it could change the mind of the person regarding their issue.  (And such were some of you. 1 Cor. 6:11)

Now the bill isn’t going unchallenged of course.  Alliance Defending Freedom, the Family Research Council, Liberty Counsel, the American College of Pediatricians, and the Pacific Justice Institute, as well as two pro-conversion-therapy groups, have begun a campaign trying to marshal voters against the bill by declaring it is “anti-Christian” or constitutes a form of government censorship of free speech, even alleging it may be unconstitutional. Some even allege that therapists who agree to see patients who are struggling with their sexual orientation and gender identity may even be prosecuted if the bill becomes law.

Staying with California, venture capitalist Tim Draper has obtained enough signatures to put a proposition on the ballot to split California into three separate states.  The state would become Northern California, Southern California, and California.  If passed it would have to be signed into law by the Governor and passed into law by the U.S. Congress.  However, it must be pointed out that if the state is split into three parts it would still be one conservative, or Republican state  to two progressive, or Democrat states.  Which would at least give some representation to the Republican minority in the state. <source>

Next we are going across the pond to the UK where gender equality reigns instead of the queen.  Case in point: Derbyshire Constabulary Male Voice Choir is an all male choir that has toured for more than sixty years.  Comprised of civilians who dress in police tunics and represent the Derbyshire police sourceduring their live performances they are the favorites of small communities and fund-raisers.  But all of that is changing.

Because of the requirement of gender equality in the Derbyshire police the current chief constable can’t support an all male choir and so has said they can no longer use the name of “Derbyshire Constabulary” and must quit using the name by June.  This has angered some of its members.  Because the choirmaster wants to keep the choir the same he has agreed to change the name of the choir rather than change the membership.  As of June the choir will be called “Derbyshire Community Male Voice Choir”  a name disliked by the members.  Along with the name change will come a costume change as the choir will no longer be wearing police tunics.  <source>

And army chaplain, a member of the Southern Baptist Church, faces charges because he wouldn’t lead a marriage retreat when a lesbian signed up for it.  An army investigator who found out that the Chaplain, Scott Squires had arranged for another chaplain that had different convictions regarding marriage than Chaplain Squires did.  Chaplain Squires has explained that N.A.M.B. (North American Mission Board) under whose authority he is, specifically prohibits same-sex weddings or retreats where same-sex couples would be present.   Chaplain Squires originally was scheduled to lead the retreat until the same-sex couple signed up for it.  And while the retreat took place one of the lesbians file a suit against Chaplain Squire saying that they had been discriminated against.

The army investigator also concluded that the soldier had been discriminated against.

The Army EO policy states that no service will be denied to any member of the Armed Service regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, religious affiliation, or sexual orientation,”

“CH Squires behaved as if his NAMB restrictions superseded [the soldier’s] right to attend the event,” he asserted. “CH Squires should be reprimanded for his failure to include [the soldier] in the initial Strong Bonds Retreat.”

Chaplain Squire’s attorney noted this:

National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) specifically prohibits the military from mandating that a chaplain “perform any rite, ritual, or ceremony that is contrary to the conscience, moral principles, or religious beliefs of the chaplain.”

“Chaplain Squires should not have his career ruined for following the rules of both his faith and the Army,” said Director of Military Affairs Mike Berry. “Federal law protects Chaplain Squires and prohibits the military from punishing any chaplain who acts in accordance with their religious tenets.”<source>

 

Frenetic Friday


For mature audiences only.

We have a lot of ground to cover tonight, robots, mad scientists, culture of death, cannibalism, christian persecution and fake porn.

So let’s start with the fake porn.  So someone called deepfakes has created an easy to use app, no I am not going to tell you its name, that can easily  swap the face of a person and place it upon the body of another one.  Now this isn’t new people have done this for years.  However, you usually had to be an expert in Photoshop to be able to do this accurately so that there was no obvious glitches.  No longer this app makes it easy and any person with a basic understanding can create fake or revenge porn.

But that isn’t all there are political ramifications to this also.  Imagine putting a politician’s face on an ad saying something totally  opposite what they believe or what their party platform is.  Take for instance this deep fake of Donald Trump as Biff from back to the future

Or how about Steve Buscemi’s face on Sharon Stone from the iconic Basic Instinct (warning adult content)

So now the question is can we trust anything on the internet?

Have you seen this little cutie? He is the latest Gerber baby and he has down syndrome. Ruth Marcus in an opinion column in the Washington Post said that she needs to have the right to abort a down syndrome baby. Her article: I would have aborted a fetus with Downs syndrome. Women need that right. She frankly admits that if you consider abortion murder then you wouldn’t do this, but not her, displaying a fundamental flaw in her thinking she states that she doesn’t consider down children human. Because of their developmental disabilities they are “not the child I wanted”.

In response to this article Pro-life Chair of the House Republican Conference Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-WA took to twitter to respond to the offensive op-ed piece. McMorris Rogers has a down syndrome child herself and said:

she understands how difficult it is “to be told that your child’s life is going to be different than you dreamed,” but she believes “every baby has a right to life, period.”

Mad Science Update!

Well one of the goals of a certain group of scientists is to create “cruelty free” meat.  Basically meat that isn’t grown by animals such as cows or chickens rather it is grown in a vat.  PETA has offered  a million dollars to sell in vitro chicken.   But famous atheist Richard  Dawkins responding to an article about clean meat in the Independent  says why don’t we go a step further and think about eating human meat?

But don’t think we are at the end of the insanity here. No how about a human-chimp hybrid? A humanzee, according to David P. Barash, a professor at the University of Washington writing  at Nautilus, is an idea whose time has come. And why should we do this? Well according to Darash we need to do this because:

the grotesque abuse of nonhuman animals, facilitated by what might well be the most hurtful theologically-driven myth of all times: that human beings are discontinuous from the rest of the natural world, since we were specially created and endowed with souls, whereas “they”—all other creatures—were not.

Yes we have to do this because David P. Barash wants to deny his Creator. And creating a humanzee would “prove” the continuity between humans and apes and thus evolution.  So ultimately creating monsters, and humanzees are monsters, is just another way to rebel against the creator who made you.

And Walmart, yes Walmart has just filed a patent for robot bees or more correctly pollination drones which can be used to pollinate crops.  The robots would collect pollen from one flower and use it to pollinate another one by means of cameras and sensors to detect where the crops are located.

With the loss of bees over the years , there has been a concern on how to replace them and robotic bees have been in the works.  But this is the first time that, according to the patent, the bees can be remotely controlled and automatically detect pollen.

And finally lets take a trip to Sweden.

Refugees, Muslim and   Christian, trying to escape violence are moving to Sweden.  Except for Christians this move to escape violence has just brought the violence to different country.  Christians have been attacked for wearing crosses in public by Islamists.  Many of these attacks have been on converts to Christianity from Islam.  But not all.  And while these attacks have been on the rise the Swedish government isn’t doing anything to stop them.  Pray for the Christian refugees in Sweden.

And good night for Frenetic Friday.

Frenetic Friday


Once more into the fray dear friends once more it is Frenetic Friday! {Void where prohibited by law}

Yes its all about the culture wars tonight.

This just in: Six months after legalizing same-sex marriage Bermuda has reversed it’s ruling and has made marriage to be between a man and a woman once again. Now currently same-sex couples can only have civil ceremonies which gives them the same rights as married couples. Of course this turn around has caused GLAAD to issue this statement:

As the world faces a resurgence of anti-LGBTQ activism, Bermuda just earned the shameful recognition of becoming the first national territory to strip away marriage from loving and committed LGBTQ couples,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD. “LGBTQ couples and their children in Bermuda should know that the global community of LGBTQ people and allies will stand with them in rectifying this unjust and hurtful news. Love can never be rolled back.”

Maybe the wrong side of history hasn’t been determined.

And speaking of reversals, a California judge ruled in favor of a Christian baker who has been under fire over her refusal last August to make a same-sex wedding cake, finding that the state cannot force her to act against her sincerely held beliefs. The California Judge said:

an order from the state to compel someone to directly go against their beliefs would be “the stuff of tyranny.”

Judge David Lampe also stated in the eight-page ruling: “For this court to force such compliance would do violence to the essentials of Free Speech guaranteed under the First Amendment.”(source)

This ruling may have some effect on other court cases of a similar nature but it is not certain at this point in time.

Now switching to the east coast Harvard has announced that single gender clubs and organizations are banned unless the club is composed of females. Because the single-sex ban was supposed to come down only on those organizations that represented “privilege” — and there’s no way an eternally oppressed, female-only organization at an Ivy League school, made up entirely of the gender-underprivileged, could ever be a place of exclusivity, elitism, and classism.

Certain clubs are lawyering up citing the right of free association especially amongst non-official clubs.

So let’s put this into plain english, men are bad and shouldn’t be allowed to hang out together.

Staying on the East Coast it seems that the Department of Education has determined that gender based activities are wrong. So what that means for this Staten Island school (PS 65) is that the father-daughter dance has been cancelled.

One father said:

They’re trying to take away everything that everybody grew up on and has come to know and I don’t think it’s fair or right,” said Matthew West, a 32-year-old father of two daughters at the school, Lily and Willow. “They should leave it the way it was — father-daughter, mother-son.”

Of PC culture, he said, “I hate it . . . People are just becoming too scared to talk

Yet at the same time other schools ignore the DOE.

PS 30, also on Staten Island, has already planned a pricey dance “to celebrate your little girl and the father figure in her life,” according to a flyer for the April 14 event. Tickets for couples cost $100.

PS 232 Lindenwood, in Queens, had a “Daddy Daughter Dance” on Thursday night, according to a school calendar. PS 83 in The Bronx plans a “Father/Daughter Dance” on June 6, as well as a May 19 “Mother and Son Field Day” and a “Mother/Daughter Spa Night” on April 27.

Think what would happen if we all ignored stupid rules.

And good night.

Frenetic Friday


What is this dark shambling shape that moves slowly into the light? It is FRENETIC FRIDAY!

Yes I am back and we have a few items of interest tonight. The very first is the testimony given by Rachael Denhollander as she gives the gospel to the man who abused her.

The courage of this young woman is an example to all of us, and to be able to share the gospel to this man shames everyone of us who won’t share it to our neighbor.

Culture Wars

Speaking of Culture Wars let me direct you to a website you should be reading.

Adam Ford he of the famous Babylon Bee and Adam4D.com has created a “drudge style” new aggregator called Christian Daily Reporter where he drops links of interest. Check it out.

Also check out Darrell B. Harrison’s blog Just Thinking … for Myself he covers a wide range of racial and social justice issues. In fact read his blog before you read mine you will get more out of it.

Summer Jaeger did an excellent speech on why feminism won’t save anyone. And it has finally become available so enjoy.

Like the new graphics? Let me know in the comments. But on to the robot news.

Meet Fabio:

This little bundle of plastic and circuits was just let go at Scotland’s Marrigotta in Edinburgh. He was designed to give customers high fives and to direct them to where to find the various food items in the store. Unfortunately his directions were so basic ie: “Where can I find the beer?” Fabio: “In the alcohol section” that he began to irritate and confuse the customers. And then when the human workers in the store began to out perform the little robot the management had to let him go. There were many reasons why the little robot didn’t work out but one of the main reasons was that the customers preferred human interaction to that of a robot.

And with that I will bid you good night.

Saturday Night Special


So here we are it’s Saturday night and I am sure that you are preparing for the first Sunday in Advent .  But if you want here are a few things I have collected over the week.

So with the current episodes of men being reprehensible the opponents of “the patriarchy” are rejoicing over the apparent fall of “the patriarchy” in fact some want “the patriarchy” to fall so much they are unconcerned if innocent men are accused.

 

 

But not everyone has this attitude.  Angela Lansbury said this:

There are two sides to this coin,” she said. “We have to own up to the fact that women, since time immemorial, have gone out of their way to make themselves attractive. And unfortunately it has backfired on us – and this is where we are today.

“We must sometimes take blame, women. I really do think that. Although it’s awful to say we can’t make ourselves look as attractive as possible without being knocked down and raped.”

Lansbury is not, however, suggesting that fault lies with individual victims: “Should women be prepared for this? No, they shouldn’t have to be! There’s no excuse for that. And I think it will stop now – it will have to. I think a lot of men must be very worried at this point.”

Candace Owens looks at her statement and in this article writes about “basic, daily acts of personal responsibility”.  Take a minute and read it.

Also here is an article from the opinion page of the New York Times that takes a look at a more balanced approach to what is happening.  The Limits of Believe All Women

Next we are traveling north, not to Alaska but our neighbor Canada.

PJMedia reports on the latest acronym you’ll need to use if you’re an elementary school teacher.

LGGBDTTTIQQAAP

So shall we parse this?

L is for Lesbian
G is for Gay
G is also for Genderqueer this is a new one so here is a definition: Genderqueer; denoting or relating to a person who does not subscribe to conventional gender distinctions but identifies with neither, both, or a combination of male and female genders.”
B is Bisexual
D is for Demisexual another new one.  So here’s the definition: A demisexual is a person who does not experience sexual attraction unless they form a strong emotional connection with someone.” This used to be known as monogamous love.
T is Transgendered. Now remember this means someone who are one sex but like to claim they “feel like” another sex.
T is also for Transexual. This is like Transgender but they have gone through the surgery that has mutilated their normal organs and are on a diet of artificial hormones.
T is also for Two Spirit. Which is a Native American gender that can only be used by Native Americans.
I is for Intersex we used to refer to this as a birth defect known as hermaphrodite. Which hardly ever occurs.
Q is for Queer but it can only be used by those who designate themselves by that term and anyone else is being insulting.
Q is for Questioning because they haven’t figured it out yet. Whatever it is.
A is for Asexual which means they are not interested in sex.
A is for Allies who are people who spend most of their time supporting LGGBDTTTIQQAAP
P is for Polyamorous otherwise known as multiple partners or adultery if you’re married.
P is for Pansexual which is bisexual for everyone else although with the invention of sex bots maybe something even worse.

And now finally Science.

What you’re seeing is the latest addition to culture of death.  The Sarco Capsule a machine designed to kill anyone who enters it using liquid nitrogen.  This capsule can be made using a 3-D printer.  This open source death machine designed by Australia’s Dr Philip Nitschke.  This execution device  uses no restricted drugs or any special expertise claims the inventor.   To download the device build instructions the person must pass an on-line test which  gives them the access code to allow them to build it.  Nothing in the article suggests that anyone can have a change of heart in the machine and stop the execution.  But the top pops off so you can have a sleek new coffin.
