The term “gay rights” is an example of controlling thought through language. The phrase refers to formal approval of homosexual practices as well as special privileges for gays, who supposedly have a “right” to hiring priority, immunity from criticism, and all the other bennies that come of being “oppressed.”
Part 2 is a short history of slavery.
It requires incredible historic ignorance to condemn our Founding Fathers for owning slaves in the 18th century. To the contrary, while by today’s standards we see their ownership of slaves as an atrocity, those are today’s standards and not applicable to other historical periods — unless you are a neomarxist proggie who wants to claim faux victimhood status. The truth is that it was the colonists alive at our Founding who, for the first time in all of human history, began to battle successfully against the institution of slavery as immoral and incompatible with the Jewish and Christian religions.
“Incredible historic ignorance” is exactly what the Democrat Party and the National Education Association are all about. They’ve been incredibly successful at it too.
Booker told the vegan magazine VegNews earlier this month that he became vegan after coming to the realization that eating eggs “didn’t align with my spirit.”
So it’s a religious thing with ‘Fartacus‘…
While claiming he does not want to lecture Americans on their diets, Booker says Americans need to be nudged into fake cheese because the planet cannot sustain the “environmental impact” of the food industry.
Nudged? Now he wants to impose his religion on others.
“We should not have allowed ourselves to be bullied and pressured into making a statement prematurely, and we take full responsibility for it,” Foys wrote in the letter cited by news outlets. “I especially apologize to Nicholas Sandmann and his family, as well as to all CovCath families who have felt abandoned during this ordeal.” Newsweek
This is embarrassing. A grown man never learned how to deal with bullies. How do you get to be his age without learning to deal with them? Was he from the privileged elite? Went to an elite private school? This bishop (small ‘b’ because he does not deserve the title) thinks he was bullied? Maybe if he knew anything about his faith… maybe if he’d ever read the New Testament… he would know real bullying — the kind experienced by Jesus Christ while on earth. THAT is bullying. And Jesus stood up to it.
This was your flock, bishop Foys! The flock you were supposed to lead and protect. You failed miserably. Because you were ‘bullied’. Please give examples of the bullying you suffered. You are obviously not shepherd material. That’s what a bishop is supposed to be, a shepherd. You are just a paid sheep-herder who flees at the slightest hint of opposition.
Hey bishop Foys, how about you try to follow the example of your Lord and Savior? You are a pathetic excuse for a Catholic, a bishop, a man, and a human being.
3. “Tax and budget policies that reduce disparities between rich and poor, strengthen democracy, and provide greater opportunity for everyone within the common good.” Is this what Jesus taught? Did He complain that the people under Roman rule needed a fairer tax code?
These are not churches so much as leftist political agitators.
The modern notion that the separation of these powers implies opposition or incompatibility is a gross misrepresentation of the founders beliefs and intentions, imposed on the nation by a cabal of hyper-partisan Democrat secularists led by Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black (a virulent anti-Catholic and one-time member of the Ku Klux Klan), along with his co-conspirator Lyndon Baines Johnson, author of the “Johnson Amendment” that purported to ban church involvement in politics.
Black wrote the majority opinion in the 1947 US Supreme Court case Everson v Board of Education which redefined the separation of church and state as a barrier to church/state cooperation – reversing over 150 years of legal precedent in which it had been recognized as a facilitator of church influence in government. It was this early and egregious example of judicial activism in Everson that shifted America from following the Judeo-Christian presuppositions of the founders to the Secular Humanist presuppositions of Cultural Marxism: preventing government from recognizing the authority of God in our law and history.

Numbers from one poll showed that, “religiously unaffiliated Democrats were more than twice as likely to have attended a rally within the past 12 months compared with their religious peers” and were “significantly more likely to have contacted an elected official or to have donated to a candidate or cause” or “bought or boycotted a product for political reasons or posted political opinions online”.
They’re also far more likely to be angry over Trump than Democrats who do have religious beliefs. Studies may label them secular, but they are animated by all the convictions of a political religion.
Political participation gives their lives meaning. It offers them the opportunity to save the world. Republicans are not just political opponents, but religious foes who threaten the planet’s survival.
And what do their political beliefs tell them about the traditional great questions answered by religion?
86% believe that people’s outcomes are beyond their control. 75% believe that outcomes are caused by luck and circumstance. 94% are convinced that government should take more responsibility for people.
They believe that life is arbitrary and meaningless, except for the order imposed by government.
Government is their god and politics is their religion. Political power is their creed and their cult.
If you don’t believe in God you’ll believe in anything.
