Steynicle 405nd

Shaidle on the HRCs:

“If they fine you, don’t pay;
If they come for you, don’t go;
If they take your computer,
let them have it.. encased in
a freshly poured block of cement.
We have to stop only looking up to people,
and try
being those people.”


Section 13: Radical Rock-Throwing

A Rotten LEAF

~ ITEM: LEAF SubmissionJUST Committee Section 13.pdf

~ ITEM: LEAF, is a Canadian legal organization

~ ITEM: GOOGLE: Leaf & funding

~ ITEM: www.leaf.ca

~ THE STATUS QUO-ITES are coming out fighting, in a new submission to the parliamentary Commission reviewing Section 13 of the Human Rights thing.

So now LEAF– or, The Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund– is a radical busy-body group who’ve minded business in many court cases, including some notable human rights debacles.

Their latest intervention is interesting for two reasons.

(1) It’s legally pretty, with all the proper footnotes, citations, and precedent-speak which is part of our legal tradition, even when radical things are being done. The equivalent is a scholar’s paper loaded with the right terminology, bits of Greek, Latin, German, and piled high with footnotes. It’s black tail and tie, with bells on, and partly a comfortable appeal to the lawyerly sort who largely populate parliament and her committee ranks. It shows the nanny-squads are getting worried, and bringing out their big words, and clearest case.

(2) LEAF is making a bid to reset the debate. This is utter status quo-ism as a non-negotiating position. Let’s rewind, it says, to the good old days when the rabble weren’t allowed to interfere in the betters crushing the lessers, with no witnesses, or proper justice done. This is the stuff a HRC honcho only dreams about, and even sideswipes the moderate and eminently reasonable position of Professor Moon as being too far to the extremist right.

The Thing Itself

This report (read it all, including the footnotes) is a nasty piece of work, like a vicious but well-mannered Renaissance diplomat not above using assassins and poisons to do his work. It represents a curiously dusty perspective, as if  9/11, Canucki terror-plots, the MoToon thing, HRC abuses over 20 years– heck, the entire free-speech debate concerning Muslims– and hence to Christians and other freespeechers– had never happened, and we lived in the 1980s. Problem? What problem? Nothing to see here folks, move along.

For this observer, it illustrates nicely the intellectual and historical bankruptcy of the HRC utopian position: what they can’t deal with, they ignore; what they reject, they smear; what they imagine is possible (despite all evidence and experience) they pursue by any means– even such strangely dated and well-aired and problematic ideas and language that got us to the situation we’re in in Canada, now becoming a less free state with softly advancing religious and political repression on the one hand, and utter blindness and permissiveness towards stealth Jihadi anti-Westernists and radical Leftists in our midst on the other.

Follow The Smilies

Who will this make happy? That’s the question: Jenny “Padded Expense Account” Lynch, Gauleiter BarbHall, Soharwardy, Elmasry, The Official Paid Jews and other HRC status quo-ites. Then they can advance slightly from a position such as the LEAFists promote, and tell Canadians “See? The HRC process has reformed, and all is well with the world again. Back to sleep now, kiddies. nanny-state will protect you.”

That and a shovel and you can fertilize a lot of acres. ~


Those Crazy Christians?

The Philosopher Hypatia

~ ITEM:Winning back our liberty: the ‘religious right’ threat

~ ITEM: Agora: A film about Hypatia of Alexandria

~ ITEM: Biography of Saint Mark, Evangelist & Martyr

~ ITEM: Video & Photos from the Coptic Christian Rally in Toronto

~ ITEM: Copts Protest Persecution

~ XANTHIPPA VS. TEH EVIL HOLY SOCON THEOCRATS? …. Er, because Christians hate thinking, and if allowed political power, will drag infidel philosophers to death in the streets, burn the libraries, enforce stupid, enslave teh womens, and generally out-Taliban the Taliban.

Erm… Christians. On our streets. In Canada.

You know, like all the crazy Christian Canadians serving in our legislatures, communities, volunteer groups, hospitals, universities, churches, and elsewhere. Or like that noted hater and would-be theocrat and socon Teh Binks. This is a typically modern radical stance, promoted in the past by those who want to destroy religion, and replace it with utopia. You know, the utopian guillotine, the paradisal Gulag, the heaven-on-earth welfare/ surveillance state. Cuz religion is to blame. Or something.

For a generally kind and smart and cool lady, Xanthippa has perhaps let the bees over-buzz her bonnet on this topic.

Hold Yer Horses!

Abusus non tollit usus, goes the Latin tag: abuse of something does not disprove the rightful use. Politicians can be corrupt; churches can be venal; parents can be negligent; laws can be unjust; the list is endless, obvious, and human. Worst of all, the highest things can be made slaves of the worst in us– and there’s the point.

Anyone seeking to figure out the right and wrong of things must take account of us, and themselves. The evil is not all There and Them: we all contribute to the fog of evil we inherit and pass on, in little ways and great. I cannot externalize and point out all the terrible stuff in the universe as if I wasn’t part of it, for there is the evil I do and don’t do, or as the wonderful old 1662 Anglican confession puts it (and if we consider this depressing and hyperbolic, we misunderstand evil and the nature of sin and salvation):

Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Maker of all things, Judge of all men, we acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, which we from time to time most grievously have committed, by thought, word, and deed, against thy divine majesty, provoking most justly thy wrath and indignation against us: we do earnestly repent, and be heartily sorry for these our misdoings, the remembrance of them is grievous unto us: the burden of them is intolerable. Have mercy upon us, have mercy upon us, most merciful Father, for thy Son our Lord Jesus Christs sake, forgive us all that is past, and grant that we may ever hereafter serve and please thee in newness of life, to the honour and glory of thy Name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

You first: get the log out of your own eye, that you may properly and gently help your fallen brother with the log in his eye.

Those Alexandrian Mobs

That the venerable and elderly pagan philosopher Hypatia was murdered in AD 415 by ravaging Christians (possibly instigated by the local bishop) is not proof that Christians are Jihadists at one remove, but that sin is ever with us, as is dehumanization, and hate and cruelty– no more so that when God is left out of the account by modern totalitarianisms.

Had this Christian been there, I would have tried to protect and defend Hypatia (even unto death), call the city guard and notify the authorities, and then hold whomever responsible for seeking to subvert the Gospel by persecutory and– dare I say it– typically pagan means. I’d also seek to speak with her, and seek to convince her that the Logos is the Incarnate Word, how God sent his Son into the world to die for sinners, and to redeem all that was best in human culture and thought and aspiration.

Blessed Mark of Alexandria

Oh– and the Graeco-Egyptians of Alexander’s city were ever a notoriously turbulent, mob-prone, and violent bunch, whether in the name of God or the gods or themselves. So in AD63 or so (during the feast of Serapis) a  mob of tolerant Alexandrian pagans beat and dragged John Mark to death, the first Christian bishop of the area, and writer of the Gospel named after him. This was another instance of the 3 centuries of pagan violence and persecution against Christians in Egypt and elsewhere– officially sanctioned and otherwise.

Contra Xanthippa

That Blessed Mark was so murdered does not (if we reverse Xanthippa’s logic) prove that all agnostics/ atheists/ pagans should be third-class citizens and kept from political and social power. Nor does it prove that their notions and utopias are the best answer to human existence. It proves.. well, all God’s chilluns can be bad and nasty, given the opportunity, excuses, and thrill of the mob. Even you and me.

Indeed, apart from the actual West– Judaeo-Christian Graeco-Romanism– we’ve found no other and better means or basis for a civil society than that actually constructed and sacrificed for by Christians and other people of good will operating on Christian and reasonable principles over the past 2000 years.

Anti-religious cartoon caricatures do not serve to help us remember and recall this, to love our neighbour, or to fight together for freedoms and institutions handed on to us and under threat from utopians and jihadists.

As for actual mobs and suffering and Egypt.. why not ask the Coptic Christians what’s that like? ~


Always With You

Scientists have noted that many Haitians are negroid in appearance.

~ ITEM: Our cat should not be better off than a human in Haiti

~ ITEM: Shocka: Muslims can’t be bothered helping Christian/voodoo Haitians, partly because they’re black; and “Know what would really ‘change the world for the better’?”

~ ITEM: Get Religion– Framing the religious voices; ‘How could He do this to us?’

~ ITEM: The Manmade Disaster in Haiti

~ EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, the news spotlight lights up an unhappy land, and the world tries to help– Ethiopia, Rwanda, Somalia, Haiti. The reasons for the misery are different, but the suffering is heart-wrenchingly the same.

Over the years– like many foreign aid receivers– Haiti has gotten dumptruck-loads of money to try and remedy the ills upon ills that nation has known down the decades and more since it was a freed slave state of the former Spanish Empire. We are ourselves, so we figure that the third-world guys just need a hand-up, a boost, a little to tide them over until they get back on their feet again and get working, and all shall be well. But that’s us– and it doesn’t even work that way in a majority of welfare situations in our own society, so why should it fix a foreign land?

Haiti was the 3rd circle of hell before the earthquake– now it’s the 6th or 7th, but still the same hell. Good folk there, worthy charities like World Vision (which the Binkses have supported since 1991), and the sometimes well-meaning foreign aid industry have tried and done much, but there are no quick fixes. If money was the answer, Haiti should look like anyplace U.S.A. or Canada, and not ‘African Pit of Despond, West’.

Root Causes?

Therein lies part of it, this Elf thinks: Voodoo is a fatalistic paganism, where (as in ancient pre-Christian times in Europe), the spirits do things to you, curses and bad luck and other such sufferings abound, and you’re the plaything of spirits and fates and witch-doctors. Spiritual victims, caught in an endless cycle.

That spiritual and psychological mind-set is much of why Haiti is stagnant and miserable. The worst of slavery, minus the desire (as with pre-welfarism American blacks) to better themselves; combined with the worst of paganism, and a nostalgia for an Africa that was– topped off with the usual brutal/ incompetent kleptocracy.

For all the faults of we sinners within it, Christianity is a different creed: this faith speaks of God’s “Yes” to humanity, and redeeming all things, be they ever so low. Christ suffers and dies for all, defeating sin; and He conquers death by rising from the grave for all. He takes the worst things, and makes of them the best things. Above and behind this is God’s abiding providence and blessing hand over creation. That’s the mystery behind the shards of light and dark we find in ourselves and the world: eternal and almighty love.

Haiti’s plight is not, ultimately, a financial problem.. it’s a spiritual one. Paganism is ultimately unfulfilled despair, and subjection to external forces acting upon you, minus the occasional overcoming hero. It’s all about excuses. The Way of Christ is redemption, transformation, hope, a destiny, not reserved for a spiritual elite, nor the mighty of this world.

Haiti needs to ditch voodoo, whatever its former place in “Fighting The Man”. As long as the Haitian spirit is trapped in the 1700s, it will not allow for redemption. ~


Politics As Unusual: Naming Names

~ ITEM: Intro to The Frankfurt School, Political Correctness and Cultural Marxism

~ ITEM: International Criminal Court proposes powers to try politicians who wage ‘illegal wars’

~ ONE OF THE GOOD THINGS arising from The Obama Event is less same-old politics as usual. The deep analysis of modernity– and the current plague of Marxism afflicting the West– is a much bigger issue than Donkey versus Elephant (or Rhino), or the usual vested-interest wars. Add to that the real and increasingly obvious globalist cult, and it’s not politics as usual, and it’s high time we all figured that out, and worked on killing this ideological zombie which is feeding on us all.

The neo-radical Left are fascist utopians. The destruction of what is in favour of imaginary perfect societies run by people like them is their goal. Truth, faith, democracy, freedom, justice, the individual in society? Targets for their secular jihad. The actual jihad? A useful tool for Western social-control now, but the ultimate opponent in the radicalized future, once faith and freedom are suppressed.

In the U.S., people like U.S. Senator Jim DeMint are fighting wisely, but also on principle– which may mean he’d never allow his name to stand for president, but we can dream. He’s even a fan of this blog, but we won’t hold that against him.

Of course, politics as usual may try to re-assert itself when the Obacracy collapses, but that’s nothing new– democracy belongs to the people– it is ours to fight for in the first place.

And that’s the sitch as this observer sees it. ~

Sesame Street – Mr. Hooper sings “One of these things…”

~ ITEM: When it comes to helping out with Haitain earthquake relief… the richer-than-Croesus Wahhabis suddenly become the world’s biggest pinchpennies

~ ITEM: JOOOOOS! IDF Continues to Work Miracles in Haiti

~ ITEM: Does God Hate Haiti?

~ ITEM: Shocka: Muslims can’t be bothered helping Christian/voodoo Haitians, partly because they’re black

~ ITEM: 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

~ ODDLY ENOUGH, the Muslim “Red Cross Crescent” didn’t rush to my brother’s Ottawa neighbourhood after the fire, and hand out hotel vouchers and practical help to the folks who lost their home. Nor have the religious ubermensch donated to help him via the open-to-any PayPal button. Of course, the Salvation Army did a religious test to see if the fire-victims were non-Army kuffars before they could receive any help was there.

As after the 2004 Tsunami, the Islamic world considers relieving the sorrows of others to be an admirable but non-urgent part of their faith. Christians understand the same claim upon us and our resources and time as an urgent matter of faithfulness and working out our salvation, when reaching out to other Christians, AND to strangers and those in need, whatever their circumstances. Jesus teaches: “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”

Not Like The Others

Millions of dollars smuggled out of Canada for Jihad? No problem. Tens of millions imported from Saudi for mosques, hate-litt, stealth-jihad projects, and groups? It’s all good, dontcha know. Funding the Taliban and countless other life-hating cults? The more, the merrier. Local inward giving to themselves, their communities & projects? You betcha.

Help kuffars out of the blue, with no hope of redress, credit, or the glorification of Islam, or jihad? Not so much. Deploying military at untold cost to rescue the stricken? As if. Pour gabillions into the sometimes iffy task of nation-building and rebuilding? Not on yer life. Risk your lives helping semi-pagan/ Christer darkies? They’ll sit this one out, thanks.

The Forbidden Reason

Why? Simply because Muhammed was no Jesus, and Christ’s followers and the nations founded on his teaching– despite their failings– also show forth the good works of the will of God, that good might be done, and that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit might be glorified. Why? For Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life.. so evil is a call to conquer and do good unto others, not sit back and be glad it didn’t happen to you and yours, or your religious or national tribe.

Or, “By their fruits ye shall know them.” ~


King Of World

The Big Avatard Himself

~ ITEM: In the 3-D eyes of the beholder

~ ITEM: Tactless Cameron’s behind-the-scenes gaffes

~ ITEM: James Cameron’s Unbelievium

~ OK, SO SOME REALLY famous people are notoriously unpleasant. We get it.

And James Cameron is not only Canadian, but of Teh Binkses’ own Scottish clan. Scots wha ha’e, eh?

But one might think that a self-appointed semi-messianic KOTW (king of the world) who changes how movies are made and seen through painting a preachy utopia we should all wish for or something.. well, that he might not turn out to be such an ignorant unCanadian ungracious unhumble fanboy-hating doofus.

Odd how so many other utopians are such prickly and bullying sorts, too: one thinks of Marx, Lenin, Stalin; or Hitler and his ilk, or on the pettier scale, Canuckis Lynch and Hall and Warman and thier fellow wince-worthy supremacists.

I’m far happier with decent and funny folks of whatever faith or lack of it, or whatever political persuasion or nationality, if they are– first and foremost– semi-successful at Humanity 101, basic courtesy and kindness, and money or fame or whatever be danged.

If the messiah Cameron and his planet-sized ego are what results from such utopian dreams, then he might want to look at himself in the mirror and remember that he’s mortal, and simply a successful Scottish-Canadian guy standing on the shoulders of all who went before him in life, and all who built Hollywood, and try a little humanity and humility on, if he really wants to leave a lasting impression, and leave the actual non-imaginary world a better place for his having passed through it.

Otherwise? Another false-prophet with his profits, the true Avatard, who can’t even live up to the standards of the characters he puts in his movies.

Or in the words of the tough-chick soldier Vasquez in Cameron’s movie Aliens, moments before she and the loser of an officer choose to eat a grenade rather than be used to cocoon more aliens– “You always were an asshole, Gorman.” ~

    This spoof of climate science may be of interest:

    Binks:

    Hold yer own horses!

    Usus non tollit abusus: proper use doesn’t preclude abuse, either!

    So, before you go all knee-jerk on us, you really should be sure you understand what Xanthippa is saying.

    At no point did she argue that Christianity is bad. Her point is that theocracy is bad, that Christian theocracy is no better than any other kind of theocracy, and that the elements of the religious right who mix religion and politics are therefore dangerous to our freedom.

    That was her point. That was her whole point.

    But somehow, you missed it.

    Instead, you felt stung by her supporting evidence and so you put up a straw man and proceeded to rant. If your intent was to show that theocracy is okay, as long as it’s Christian theocracy — that was not the way to do it.

    Methinks the Binkster dost protest too much!

    Personally, I couldn’t agree more with Xanthippa’s argument. Whenever the state steps outside the very narrow bounds circumscribing its only legitimate function — which is to secure the inalienable rights of all individuals equally — nothing but evil ensues.

    Whenever the state, the church, and the market are incestuously intertwined, they become grotesquely bloated and corrupt and the result is always widespread oppression, exploitation, and extermination. In this unholy union, you can replace the church with any secular ideology that demands unquestioning faith — like communism — and the prognosis remains equally nightmarish.

    And just in case you doubt that this argument is relevant to the core political realities of today, consider the fact that there are about 50 million Evangelical Christians in North America, and that they politically and financially support the most belligerently rabid lunatic fringe among Israeli Zionists, who are doing everything in their power to demolish the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque so they can build their coveted Third Temple.

    And why should all this matter to a bunch of white Anglo-Saxon Protestants? Because it is required to fulfill biblical prophesy, trigger Armageddon and bring about the Second Coming of Christ!

    You think this isn’t a serious danger? You object to Xanthippa’s warning against it?

    Give your head a shake, Binks!
