Is This Our Canada?

DALLAS, TX - APRIL 23:  A Dallas Stars ice girl cleans the ice in the second period during Game Four of the First Round of the 2014 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at American Airlines Center on April 23, 2014 in Dallas, Texas.

DALLAS, TX – APRIL 23: A disgusting hockey whore Dallas Stars slut slut slut ice girl wiggles her bum cleans the ice in the second period during Game Four of the First Round of the 2014 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at American Airlines Center on April 23, 2014 in Dallas, Texas.

~ ITEM: Ice Girls, FHRITP and Jets fans’ Katy Perry chants: We need to put a stop to casual sexism in sports

~ ITEMS: Via a Binks-minion– A moral panic is an intense feeling expressed in a population about an issue that appears to threaten the social order; and Moral panics are business development strategies

~ UPDATE– ITEM: 2014-15 DALLAS STARS ICE GIRLS; A veteran Dallas Stars Ice girl makes $735 per game and appearance fees range from $300 to $1500. And some former Ice Girls complain. Binks wasn’t aware that working for the NHL was mandatory…. ‘Cold’, she says? Ever been Alaska crab fishing? Standing security in a wintry parking lot? Linesman during a blizzard? Sheesh.. men often work cold “boo hoo to you!”; women gets cold, it’s a serious thing, dontcha know.

~ JOYLESS CRANKS tempt me to be joyless and cranky.

I’ll admit it– I’m a contrarian. When Mrs. Binks had a ‘Do Not Touch’ note on a recent birthday cake, part of my brain was egging me on “Touch The Cake!” And so, here goes.

Soviet Canuckistan!

In the inhuman and humourless Social Justice Warrior view of Canada, anybody who makes a swear (gasp!), says what they (objectionably) think (scream!), or like to look at women (swoon!), are stinking testosterone-poisoned man-pigs who will be taught better, or else. And we will mercilessly judge everyone, especially icky men.

Sadly, the politically correct really do believe they can forcibly redeem humanity without God, and with an ever-growing tower of rules. Mob, rage, dox, outrage! And what happens when the victims of SJWs people feel they are voiceless, bullied, silenced? They may shut up.. or keep it amongst friends.. or, tend to say stuff even more extreme than usual.. or (horrors) act like ordinary humans– imperfect, sinners, not polished racists or sexists or perfectionists like the speech-coders and finger-waggers.

Globe Theatre Fire

Puritans, y u no like?

After all, if there’s no more outrage to be had, no more triggering and tantrums and jazz-hands and minding other people’s business, and acting in a way even the 16th & 17th century English Puritans who worked so hard to shut down the theatres, (all entertainments, whatever and wherever people might enjoy something) would find extreme and bossy– why then, the whole grievance industry might shut down, and then where would we be?

Burn It All Down!

Social Justice Warriors and their media-minions– like the NatPost’s Scott Stinson— are never happy, and everything wouldn’t be enough. Without actual glaring and horrific human rights abuses in Canada, with no hordes of Canucki Nazis swarming Canadian Jews (sorry, that’s Muslims.. we can’t threaten their ‘cultural traditions’), or pyres lit for every self-identified grumpy minority.. well, we’ll just have to talk about nothing, right?

Are you also telling those Canadians who describe themselves as homosexual not to be sexist in said manner? And these ‘Ice Girls’– are they, in fact, victims of white slavery, or people employed making a fair wage in an sports entertainment venue? Self-objectifying, or canny? Part of a plot to eliminate the Zamboni? We’d better inform the chicks that they’re being oppressed, and quick.

20130925-060258

The FHRITP guys are boors, poor excuses for men, and classless, but then what? Pillory? Duct-taping? Social-media execution? Firing a jerk doesn’t actually help him or change anything, does it? Or was this just some quick and dirty revenge?

What price, Mr. Stinson? How many human freedoms of thought, speech, association, free market, and minding your own business would you be willing to crush and erase for your notion of ‘casual sexism must die’ to triumph? Does this include all objectification of hunky hockey players and male athletes? No more semi-naked calendars featuring either gender for anyone? Human nature must be erased and scolded, not redeemed and transformed?

Cadres Of Harpies

Let’s not pretend, Mr. Stinson: behind your gentle finger wagging lurks whole screeching regiments of Toronto’s unspeakable Mz. Chanty Binx, would-be matrons and malevolent interfering hags minding everybody’s business, a tasteful low-heeled shoe stomping on male faces forever. If you don’t know that, Mr. Stinson, you are– at best– a useful idiot.

She probably won’t fetch you a sammich, men. Nor be an Ice Wench.

Here’s The Thing

We long for perfection.. that’s part of our spiritual nature, and longing for infinity, God, and heaven. Political perfection (let’s call it ‘Utopia’ = no place) cannot and will never exist, except as a horrible illusion built on blood and bones and torture and show-trials and kangaroo courts and concentration camps.

The perfectibility of human nature is a Christian idea, taught by Jesus, and only made possible by revelation of God’s love and law, and the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit: God is love, so love like God does, by his life imparted through the Son, by the Holy Spirit. We partake of God’s own life, to be like him, in him: generous, merciful, true, moved by love.

rainsfallsonjustandunjust

Counterfeits? Not so much. To try and make that perfection (your proper end, or destination, or completeness) is a gift of God, not of committees, yelling feminists, soft-pedalling journalists, speech-codes, rules, edicts, shaming, nagging, or minding everybody else’s business for them. That’s not any kind of love, except in a twisted, ugly, bossy, force-you-to kind of way. A bit rapey, in fact. Perfectionism is not perfection.

What Kind Of Love?

Now that we’re not at a wedding, re-read what St. Paul says in his first letter to the Corinthians, and to us:

If I shall speak with every human and Angelic language and have no love in me, I shall be clanging brass or a noise-making cymbal. And if I have prophecy, and I know all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have all faith so that I may remove mountains, and I have no love in me, I would be nothing. And if I should feed everything that I have to the poor, and if I hand over my body to be burned up and I have no love in me, I gain nothing.

Love is patient and sweet; love does not envy; love is not upset neither puffed up. Love does not commit what is shameful, neither does it seek its own; it is not provoked, neither does it entertain evil thoughts, Rejoices not in evil, but rejoices in the truth, Endures all things, believes all things, hopes all, bears all.

Love never fails; for prophecies shall cease, tongues shall be silenced and knowledge will be nothing; For we know partially and we prophesy partially, But when perfection shall come, then that which is partial shall be nothing. When I was a child, I was speaking as a child, I was led as a child, I was thinking as a child, but when I became a man, I ceased these childish things. Now we see as in a mirror, in an allegory, but then face-to-face. Now I know partially, but then I shall know as I am known. For there are these three things that endure: Faith, Hope and Love, but the greatest of these is Love.

The choice about what kind of Canada is rising on the ruins of Emperor Pierre’s Trudeaupia is getting clearer and clearer.. a veritable Soviet Canuckistan teeming with busy-bodies.

Laird Harry MacLeggs Will Have His Say, The Noo!

~ ITEM: National Geographic, March 2015 article.

~ ITEM: Interview: Barry Marshall– Nobel Prize in Medicine

~ THE BINKS feels a wee rant coming on. Hold onto yer kilts.

OK, NatGeo.. we’ve had our tussles and misunderstandings down the years– you pandered for AlGore, climate alarmism, all the water is gone, giant storms a-comin’, blah blah blah. Feckwits.

And yet, in such, you merely keep asserting things that may or may not be true, and presenting only one side of the evidence, which is called ‘balance’ in this day and age, because data and discussion and different interpretations of theories makes some people cry. Here’s yer baby-blankets, ya wee bairns.

Now, I’m hoping to actually read this recent issue, which just arrived on the old Binks doorstep, thanks to a kind giver & friend… but just reading the cover already has my blood boiling, so there– now I have boiled blood.

blood-boiling

GRRRRRRR

Do you notice a few things in your front page list, ya wee numpties?

(1) All these things are not the same.

(2) ‘Science’ means study, evidence, theory, debate, discovery not “WE WON, SO SHUT UP!” or “Everybody in lock-step, or we bring the mock!”

(3) Thus, what your cover describes as a ‘THE WAR ON SCIENCE’ is not only bad science, but worse journalism.

(4) Stop pimping for the left-wing religion of eco-righteousness, because reality is right there behind you, mouth agape, chops well-licked, ready to bite you all right in the arse.

(5) NatGeo religion: “There aren’t really two sides to all these issues.” No. In any scientific matter, there are often many, many sides, over time. The idiots declaring “The Truth!” are acting like religious believers, not scientists. Bluidy eejits!

(6) What I said: The Lies Are Settled! Because Science!

Your Idiotic Cover

natgeo (1)

“Maybe—except that evolution actually happened. Biology is incomprehensible without it. There aren’t really two sides to all these issues. Climate change is happening. Vaccines really do save lives. Being right does matter—and the science tribe has a long track record of getting things right in the end. Modern society is built on things it got right.”

So Please Just F*ck Right Off, Mmmmkay?

Climate Change Does Not Exist.

I know of nobody who believes this. The climate is always changing, right? Look out your window. However, if you meant “Anthropogenic CO2-caused global warming is not the final word in climatology“? Yes, you’ll find MOST scientists without their hand in the pocket of the taxpayer hold to that position on the data. Well done then, eejits.

Evolution Never Happened.

Well, evolution is a theory, not something carved in stone and handed down from the Most High. There are many, many theories about changes within or between species over time. Change happened, but how? Not certain. How long? Various. Causal factors? Still being discussed. If you mean “Darwinian-Style Evolution, so there’s no God“, then you’re either a dimwit, a neck-bearded internet atheist kid, or someone trying to sell something. No serious evolutionary anthropologist believes in actual Darwinism any more.

The Moon Landing Was Fake.

Not to the best of my knowledge. Are you thus placing skeptics and critics of the rest of the list on this same level? Very sly & sneaky, NatGeo! Nice slag. When threatened, then politics of personal destruction, shaming, and association with the most extreme conspiracy theorist always works. Shame on you, Nat Geo.

Vaccinations Can Lead To Autism.

Dunno. All medicines have side effects, some serious, and just because Big Pharma says ‘Trust Us!’ does not make me feel trustful: Thalidomide. Vaccination is a balanced risk– the possible danger of the thing itself, the possible dangers of the diseases vaccinated against, the possible dishonesty of medical corporations/ government. Are you, NatGeo, telling us to blindly trust Mother Medicine, ask no questions, do no research, have no review and refining of vaccines and contents & side-effects, ever, even by medical researchers, doctors, and experts NOT in the pay of Big Pharma itself? Really?!? Who can we trust on this one? Dunno: everybody seems to be either for sale, or dogmatic about it all.

Genetically Modified Food Is Evil.

Evil? As in ‘Muwahahahaha!!’? Nice play there: always make the position of critics as ridiculous as possible. Untested? Genetically new with unknown long-term consequences for the environment, animals & plant life, and humans, when the genetic material of what we eat can permeate the gut-barrier, and interact with our own genetic material? It’s possibly genetic plutonium, and we’re apparently advised by NatGeo to trust corporations like Monsanto, which has more than proven itself evil, litigious, greedy, monopolistic, super-secretive, nasty to farmers, and a threat to the actual bio-diversity of plant seeds– or else we’re kooks! And FrankenPharm are already sneaking GMOs into the food supply, because we’re all just lab rats with no rights. So, NatGeo: Monsanto is good, Monsanto is nice, they remake our food, and won’t give us a say? There are enough people with enough problems with ordinary old every-day food, but GMOs are awesomes! That’s probably why when some recent U.S. ballot initiatives called for GMO-labelling of products, BigPharm poured a lot of money into preventing people from having a say. Because they care.

Just One Example

cute little bug

WHO’S a cute little bug?!

Remember: Everybody Knew™ at one point that stress led to excess stomach acid which was in turn the cause of heartburn, which led to peptic ulcers and even stomach cancer. So, pump the Pepto Bismol, Tums, and hundreds of other antacid products and prescriptions down there, because science and medicine have decided there’s no question. The Science Was Settled.. and besides, it was big, big business, and big medicine.

Except for 3 scientists, who kept asking questions about the co-existence of a bacteria– Helicobacter pylori— in the stomachs of people suffering from excess stomach acid and heartburn. Nonsense, said the medical establishment, gastroenterologists, BigPharm, and critics (without checking or testing the data). The $cience IS $ETTLED™. Cha-ching.

Since the science was far from settled on Helicobacter pylori, one of the scientists, Barry Marshall, decided to consume a petri-dish of the bacteria, and– boom– he got all the symptoms. He took the appropriate anti-biotic to fight Helicobacter pylori .. and immediately got better. Because actual science.

After much screaming, doubting, mocking, and backlash, Marshall won the Nobel prize. Because questions, real science, not declaring anything settled, without reproducible proof. If NatGeo had been on the case, it’s “BACTERIA CAUSE ULCERS: Fringe Extremists Agree”.

Send In The Kooks

womweds

But what do I know? I self-identify as an elf, and a wombat on alternate Wednesdays– so I’m obviously an uber-kook, like all the evil crazy deniers, right?

Thing is, science is not revealed from heaven, and since humans are mortal, fallible, moved by good and bad reasons & motives, sometimes even petty and dishonest evil ones, for anybody– especially a respected popular journal– to get on The Science Is Settled, Everybody Knows That [ fill in the blank ] is naive, narrow-minded, doctrinaire, unscientific, pro status quo forever.

Derp, NatGeo. Cut the preaching.

~ YOU MAY FREELY ignore all that follows.. after all, I’m merely a non-Harvard educated white male cisgendered Canadian elf. As a white male of my species, I’m no doubt a patriarchy racist sexism, and one of the micro-causes of endless micro-aggressions.

Still and all– the other day, in the face of the black-run Baltimore #Negrogeddon, POTUS & constitutional expert Chocolate Jesus gets his fine half-white Harvarded self up to the big podium and has the grumpy-faced cojones to mumble “Jim Crow… Slavery.. Christianity” as the cause of it all. Now, I’m not a noted constitutionalist and smartest man ever like the Emperor of Obamistan, but still– what are they teaching at schools these days?

harvard_logo-web

Don’t Know Much About…

How do we explain this? Surely all of his constitutional law professors did not neglect to mention a very few facts?

Such as– the agricultural and Democratic SOUTH was largely in favour of slavery? That there was a whole set of Lincoln-Douglas Republican/ Democrat slavery debates, a.k.a. “The Great Debates Of 1858“, in which the Republicans sought to prevent slavery spreading Westward into new territories (like Missouri)?

I believe Harvard may have a liberry or two, and in said book repositories may even repose a book or fifty on the matter. But.. what do I know?

That the aforementioned Jim Crow Laws (1890-1965) of racial segregation were Southern Laws, beloved of Democrats, following on older laws of the same type? No? Nobody at Harvard ever pointed this out to you, sir? Not once, in passing, even in a single wee footnote?

Nor that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 repealing all Jim Crow Legislation was voted in via largely Republican votes (80% vs. Dem 63%, despite ex-KKK member Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia (D), who personally filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for 14 straight hours to keep it from passage)? That the KKK was a Democratic-backed mob, that the Democrats largely backed the Dred Scott Decision, and that the Republican-supported NRA taught black (mostly Republican) men how to shoot, to defend themselves from lynchers and mobs. But– what do I know?

It Gets Even Worse, Factually

Oh, and Mr. Obama, I’m worried that the following may cause a blood-vessel in your head to pop– so read this slowly, pausing for breath– but black slavery (and white slavery, and virtual Pakistani & Filipino slavery) is not illegal in 2015 in many Muslim countries, and was only officially de-legalized in Saudi in the 1960s.

Worse? OK. Age-old Islamic slavery also contributed to the slaves bought and sold to America back in the day, and to the sales of human castration equipment. Nice slag there on blaming Christianity for slavery and Baltimore, Mr. President, Sir– but you clearly can’t or won’t history very good.

Now, I’ve neither been to ivy-covered Harvard, nor have I secretly funded anybody to the tune of $1 million in tuition and stuffs to go there (like someone did for former foreign student Mr. Barry Soetero), but if this is the quality of the education resulting, I think Harvard (and her profs) owes somebody a big apology, and a generous partial refund, along with curriculum reform. And POTUS may need some serious & supervised remedial reading.

Barack-Obama2.JPG__1232402548_0037

See? Harvard Has Books. Open one, Barry..

He’s Faking It, Anyway

Still, it’s no surprise. Holy Chocolate Jesus is not any friend of his faithful 13 million 97% for him voters, or the 317 million others, either. In fact, blacks have in some ways had it even worse under “The First Mulatto President” Obama.

Oh no, I didn’t. Yep.

I>> Black youth and general black unemployment has skyrocketed and soared ever higher into double-digits since Obama’s coronation, and not once has he spoken to or made any serious policies, executive orders, or whatever to help them. Double the white rate?.. thanks for the votes, bitches. And that’s on top of the economic fails of this misadministration.

NUMBER-ONE-KILLER-2013-FB

I>> Black abortion is still in the high 30% of total U.S. abortions (it used to be 40%+). This is a racist black genocide, a la Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood-founding racist extraordinaire.

Dead black babies? In heaps? No word or shame or effort from Partial Birth Barry & his friends at the Planned Parenthood death mills. You wear this in your time, Obama. That green thing is the buck which stopped in front of you, boss-man.

I>> Nor have the disastrous effects of the welfare state on black families been addressed by this president. But his $100 mill vaycays are really great, thanks y’all.. and the 2-3 billion in same since 2008 was just lying around anyway, and could not have helped poverty or education or a new Presidential Fund For Education or anything.

I>> The Shiny New Jim Crow, run by the police and cash-for-prisoners jail companies (COUGH attention, Marco Rubio COUGH), assure that any young black men who do survive the womb and largely fatherless (72%) homes and inferior black schools don’t get any help or support to better themselves, they get overcrowded jail-time galore. Keep dem darkies under control. Obama? Silence.

201378547_Obama_Dictator_Racist_Opposition_answer_2_xlarge

But Wait– There’s Mores!

On top of this, whilst tax-gouging the multi-coloured middle class, the establishment and Obama have continued to support long-term FED RESERVE™ stimulus money-magicking, which– while it keeps the well-holed U.S.S. Titanic afloat a little longer– actually devalues the spending-power of each dollar via inflation (shrinking money). Everybody is stolen from, especially the non-rich.

I>> Taxation hits the middle class, but devalued dollars (inflation) means that marginal wages buy even less every year. So, there’s less food on the table, less for the poor all ’round, including American black people & families.  The 2013 dollar was only a $0.63 dollar, compared to 1985– and actual 2008-2015 inflation in some sectors of the economy is ( shhhhhh! ) upwards of %15. Your dollar is even less, now.

20130510_USD

I>> Then again, since race-baiter Obama and his minions Holder & Sharpton happily threw gasoline and TNT onto the racial fires of Trayvon, and Ferguson, and Baltimore (yay, burning black-owned homes and businesses! a victory for race equality!), all this black death and misery and poverty and gun violence is actually quite useful, in a revolutionary Alinskyite sense, isn’t it?

Because– and Binky has been saying this on and on since 2007, as this blog can attest– Obama and Soros and Jarrett and Holder and Herr Goebbels Sharpton and Boehner and all the other human toothaches, malcontents, and race-card players in the Republicrat party really don’t care about anybody, or justice, or black Americans, because you have to smash a few millions of eggs to make a Utopian omelette, and the fewer blacks at the end of it, the better.

Obama isn’t opposed to black slavery– he wants to enslave everybody in his New Omerica.

Shut Up, White Elf!

Am I racist? Yup, because every human ever born is one. But not everyone is [cue evil musicRacist™ in the U.S. Demopublican sense.

I was partly raised in 1960s Montreal, as much as my uber-liberal mother could make it so, to be somewhat colour-blind. My first kinder-crush was Michelle, a dark beauty whom I serenaded (bilingually, back then) with the Beatles song therefore named. Weird little passionate elf, I was.

Michelle, ma belle
Sont des mots qui vont très bien ensemble
Très bien ensemble. 

My second pre-school crush was a half-black girl named Kimberley, daughter of family friends in an (gasp!) inter-racial marriage. Hubba.

My Hawaiian born & bred Grandma Jean was so full of the Portugee that in the Summer, she was much darker than Obama now is, and in the Winter, was a medium dark roast coffee with milk. ‘Coloured’? Nah. Grammaaaa!

But… DEEP SIGH.. what do I know, compared to Obama the Great and Powerful, the last word in education, leadership, and compassion?

Stupid racist elf. ~

Coren’s Uncomfy Bedfellows?

Look.. The Anglican Church!

Look.. The Anglican Church!

~ ITEM:There is no Pravda in Izvestia, and there is no Izvestia in Pravda”

~ ITEM: THE VORTEX: MICHAEL COREN

~ ITEM: Binky On Canadian Anglican Innovations 1985-2004, And Beyond

~ ITEM: Binks, Steynian 477– “Why Not, Exactly? Discuss..”

~ POPE MICHAEL I has joined the Anglican Church of Canada. Yay him, he says.

Sadly, I’d suggest that Michael Coren’s new religious bedfellows may not jibe with some of his past declared positions on free speech, Islam, radical feminism, and intellectual and religious freedom– not within institutional Anglicanism.

Unless his Anglicanism amounts to a cherry-picked fantasy land of what he chooses to do and think, as opposed to the full story. Can’t speak to that.

sun-news-rise-of-extremism

(1) A REBEL! Michael loved him some Sun News TV, as a platform to speak outside and above the mainstream dino-news and the lockstep media-message of our chattering classes. He will thus be theoretically not pleased to learn that official Anglican news out of Toronto, New York, and London is mostly to real journalism what Soviet-era newspapers Pravda (“Truth”) & Isvestia (“News”) were to truth in news. Or as the old joke had it:

“There is no Pravda in Izvestia, and there is no Izvestia in Pravda” or in English “There is no truth in News, and there is no news in Truth.”

Who says? The former Anglican Drudge Report guy says, me, Binks WebElf. I knew this world inside out, was attacked and threatened by Canadian & American official Anglican propaganda organs– even though everybody read me, because I reported EVERYTHING, and promptly, not months later and whitewashed or distorted or lied-about. Primates, Archbishops and Bishops, clergy and lay-people world-wide read CaNN (Classical Anglican Net News), because.. News. Facts. TImely information.

02_groupthink_490_320

(2) ONE THINK! Whatever the position the Canadian Establishment/ chattering classes hold, is reflected back to them by the Anglican Church of Canada. It’s nice architecture, pretty robes, sometimes smells and bells, but generally filled with CBC/ NDP content.

Mr. Coren considers himself a controversialist, provocateur, edgy guy. Careful, Mike. Toronto Anglicanism only likes Left Wing institutionalist positions. So as long as you keep your incorrect opinions hidden, or advocate for the correcthink, you will fit in. Anything else, and they will begin to treat you like you bathe in rotten fish guts.

Sure, they like you now because it’s a rare score for a dying, mostly irrelevant and soulless church, a hollow zombie form of itself, full of sound and fury and signifying socialism. But don’t dare criticise modern Canadian Anglicanism, however factually or justly or softly, because you will get stiff-armed at tea-time, bro. Shut down, shut up, sidelined, sniffed-at.. “Not Quite The Thing”.

And don’t you dare like the old Anglican Prayerbook too much. Those guys are batshite nucking futs crazies. Extremist. Subversive. Rebel scum. Not following the Direction The Church Is Moving In. Fish guts.

42673c288c5e9fde809c04125eff6a52

(2) THE BRAINING! Do you like to brain a lot, Michael? You know, be a well-read, thoughtful, non knee-jerk kinda guy? I do.

Canadian Anglicanism is now mostly a one-themed political party, and the formerly old strong sectors of evangelicalism and middle church and high church have all melted into a politically correct multiculti crayon-puddle of liberal pseudo-Catholicism.

Polite intolerant soft totalitarians. Trust me.

It starts at the clergy-selection stage, these days– anybody who does not think the current (and future to-be-named later) positions of upper management are leaned on, or jettisoned. Not sure about lady ministers? New liturgy? Feminism in robes? Incoherent theology? Speaking up about militant Islam? Ever-changing hymns and worship? Attention-seeking heretical clergy and bishops going off undisciplined? Gay is not quite the thing? Not willing to bully your parishioners into the latest innovation? Not willing to march lock-step with your diocesan and national church offices? It’s the secret trap door in the floor for you, would-be clergy!

download

I mean, the Bible is nice, and all, but don’t get carried away, type thing. God and Jesus, yes, but the exciting Diocesan sub-committees are where the Holy Spirit speaks authoritatively.

There’s just no “There”, there, Michael. And the current church you just joined is very anti-intellectual, unless you are a clever apologist word-monkey for the way things are at the moment. A word-whore propagandist.

l_pc2020 i love my cousin

(3) YAY TEH GHEY! You like the gay thing. Peachy.

You’ll also be wildly amused to know that under the initiative of the former soft-communist primate “Red” Ted Scott, and as ratified by a later General Synod, that theoretically and canonically, the Anglican Church of Canada has very few rules about who can now boink whom. In the old marriage service of the classical Prayer Book, the age-old rules of consanguinity (blood-relations/ incest) say who can and can’t marry. Those laws in turn reflected the Bible, and 1500 years of Christian practice and canon law, arising from Jewish law & practice. These ancient laws were dumped in the early 2000s, all because [ sound the trumpets! ] some Anglicans at a meeting said so. Isn’t arbitrary power funsies?

So, technically, if you are a Canadian Anglican, you are able to get married to your cousins, your step-children, your aunts and uncles, your nieces and nephews, even your grandparents. That the current Canadian law does not honour your chosen unions– why, that’s just bigotry and injustice. Yay incest!

Lambeth-Conference-bishops

Look At All The Mini-Popes!

(4) POPESES, PRECIOUSSS! You now have no Pope, Michael. And unlike in England, you don’t even have the Queen, House Of Lords, or Parliament to order and control your church, its leaders, or laws.

Behold indeed a plethora of mini-Popes in charge of mini-Vaticans, from the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Anglican Primates, The Canadian Primate, the church bureaucrats, busy-body liturgists, your local bishops, your deans and regional deans and archdeacons and local clergy. Lots and lots of popes. Oh, and lay-popes– bossy lay people who like to give God, their minister, and others a piece of their mind about everything. On top of that, you now have no court of final resort, or body of doctrine, agreed-on sacraments, view of the Scriptures, authoritative catechism, or anything so rigid and intolerant as that.

It’s a jelly-fish, Michael– and you will be subject to the changes and chances of a spineless yet bullying institution, the vain winds of false doctrine, endless novelty and experimentation on you and your soul, depending on the whims of various levels of mini-Popes above you.

gtfo

(5) GTFO. And if you question–especially if stand and speak up for what Anglicanism seems to actually mean– you will be invited to leave.. which is partly why there are so many Anglican split-off ( or ‘continuing’) churches, for the ones who could not be tolerated by officialdom. Your bishop may even sue the pants off you and your congregation, because tolerance.

Don’t get me wrong– there are some great people in the Anglican Church, even some first-class clergy and bishops– but most of them are that way because they buck the official sewer-tide, brain good, and take the resultant snubbing and attacks, and not because the church likes them that way, or made them that way. The growing parts of the Anglican Church are in the 3rd world, and unlike Michael Coren or the smug & all-but-bankrupt Anglican Church of Canada, these Anglican Christians cheerfully and resolutely uphold Biblical morality, despite much bullying, contempt, and interference from rich progressivist Western Anglicans.

Welcome to the People’s Socialist Soviet Church of Anglican, Canuckistan, comrade. You buttered your bread, now lie in it. ~

~ SO.. CANADIAN talking-head and one-time Sun-TV commentator Michael Coren has loudly and gracelessly left the Roman Catholic Church, choosing instead the waffling, numerically dying, and (officially) militantly progressive Anglican Church of Canada. So… those Titanic deck chairs– they comfy?

This, he says, all because it’s for the children he hearts teh gays.

tumblr_n08mc20A6E1tpo3v2o1_1280

Enter The Unicorns

Well, some gays. Sadly, and exactly like the Toronto-centric Anglican Crutch of Canadia, Mr. Coren is only paying attention to the noisiest and most institutionally aggressive segment of the homosexual movement, and choosing to ignore, slight, and pretend that any other position towards gay people or about gay people simply cannot and does not exist.

I’m talking about friends and colleagues of mine, namely the former gay, celibate gay, and non-leftist gay communities. They are not unicorns, but they are a true– and ignored, mocked, and maligned– minority.

Proof Of Same

At Angrycan General Synods in 2004 and 2007 (big national meeting thing), some very courageous ex-gays and celibate gays politely wrote a letter and tried to speak up and represent that the gay community itself was not monolithic, and nor should the “Same-Sex Marriage Or Bust” bandwagon be the only ones acknowledged, or heard by Canadian Anglicans. The aggressively polite establishment in robes would have none of it, or them.

You know, cuz if you ever dare oppose teh gay, you are Westboro Baptists, and have the dumb. And probably a case of the evils.

To add churchly jackboot to injury, by voting down a 2007 motion to recognize them, the Anglican Mafia Church gave a big thermonuclear  “F*ck You!” to actual ‘listening’, dialogue’, and the all-important ‘diversity & inclusiveness’ so dear to the hearts of true leftard bullies social justice warriors everywhere.

Because Anglicans Are Nice, And Stuff

Because Anglicans Are Nice, And Stuff

Moar Bigotries!

Thus, our noble talking head Michael Coren is joining a church which knee-jerkily excludes, deliberately discriminates against, and nastily ignores the actual voices of actual Anglicans (and other all Christians, and God & Jesus) who actually have something important to say which may go against the all-holy Spirit Of The Age and the gay ‘born that way’ fascism which dominates all discussions in the media and culture– but Michael just doesn’t want to hear that, any more than he wanted to hear many of those same brave people from within the Roman Catholic Church itself.

So, Michael: to avoid personal ‘hypocrisy’, you secretly left Catholicism to publicly join a hypocritical political cult denomination which doesn’t even want to know it’s being terribly hypocritical– a kind of Double Super-Secret Hyper-Hypocrisy.

roflmfao

Ironically, sometime freespeecher Coren, in the great culture-war of our times over religious freedom and free speech, has just aligned himself with the silencers, the bullies, the speech-code brigade and their collaborationist religious sympathizers and minions within the Anglican and United Church of Canada. That they are Anglican, and so very polite and orderly and dignified about it, just means there’s a velvet glove on the steel claw.

Well done, then. Stick that in your culturally fashionable moral grandstanding, sir, and smoke it. I’m sure God is well-pleased.

Because He’s Betterer Than You

Social Justice Warriorism– churchy or otherwise– isn’t actually about facts, people, reality, consequences, and details. It’s a morality tale, about some people being better than the stupid and/ or evil ones, who dare disagree with The Message. The SJWs are better than. More gooder. Righteous, even. So shut up, they explained. Capital “H” Hypocrisy with huge fecking bells on.

La la la, I Can’t Hear You So You Don’t Exist is no more admirable than shouting down, insulting, social media blocking, and misrepresenting a reasonable opposition to same-sex marriage. Yes, Michael, that’s you— and you did precisely that to me and a round dozen of people trying to ask you questions and to clarify your position on FaceBook a while back.

So ex-evangelical, ex-Roman Catholic, and likely some day ex-Anglican Michael Coren can go ahead and cheerfully dislocate his shoulder by vigorous back-patting himself, but reality– and people– ain’t so simple. ~

~ Saith Teh Binks

P.S. Michael, just FYI, for converts/ reverts/ deverts/ steeple-chasers it is considered Very Bad Form to go about slagging your previous ecclesiastical home. Give it 2-3 years, then comment, mmkay? 

P.P.S. It’s also kinda skeezy to go about as a Very Public Popish– speaking and writing and getting money and bylines and attention for same– whilst secretly going to Anglican services for over a year. You buttered your bread, now lie in it, saith Teh Binks.

Via FaceBook, by Prof. Robert P. George:

I have had a series of rather sharp exchanges on Twitter this evening with Michael Coren. I had praised him on Facebook for having the integrity to leave the Catholic Church when he decided he could not believe her teachings. At the same time, I noted that the particular type of Anglican church he was likely joining was among those now on on the path to the third form of “atheism” identified by Plato in his great work *The Laws*. (I explained that “atheism” there does not mean denial of the *existence* of a deity or deities.) Mr. Coren, who freely criticized the Catholic Church upon leaving it, seems to be offended that I would equally freely criticize liberal Anglicanism. But the right to criticize other people’s religions or systems of belief is a two way street. He is certainly entitled to criticize mine; but I am equally entitled to criticize his. Surely no one should need reminding of that.

I should note, by the way, that most Anglicans in the world are definitely NOT on the path to Plato’s third form of “atheism.” On the contrary, their conception of God is the morally demanding God of the Bible. Their teachings on marriage and sexual morality are fully in line with the biblical and natural law understandings. That is true, I believe, in all the places where Anglicanism is growing, rather than declining, and especially in the places where it is growing fastest. Perhaps I should note that liberal Catholicism is in no better shape than liberal Anglicanism (theologically and in terms of growth). The same is true, I believe, for the liberal Protestant churches.

Via FaceBook, by Hilary White:

Yeah, I’ve been thinking of apostatizing and joining the other side of the War, denouncing Christ and His holy Church, joining the chorus of hate against it and claiming victim status.

I mean, srsly, imagine the payback! Big fat media contracts, appearances on Oprah. Book deals. A reality show all my own! Woot!

But, having listened to the pathetic notorious self-promoter Michael Coren making an idiot of himself doing this, I find I don’t have the stomach for it.

But hey, good on him for being willing to look like a completely disingenuous and calculating moral huckster and shill for the left… for money and notoriety.

I tip my hat. I really do.

Via FaceBook, by Gerry Hunter

You never hear of the Courage Apostolate in the media, because it falsely, and it seems deliberately, presents an organization called Dignity as being a Catholic organization of people with same sex attraction. The media ignores, and now Coren has ignored and slighted, the members of this apostolate, and have chosen to have no part of something that moved Dr. Jeffrey Satinover, a physician and therapist with extensive historic experience with same-sex attraction, to write:

“I have been extraordinarily fortunate to have met many people who have emerged from the gay life. When I see the personal difficulties they have squarely faced, the sheer courage they have displayed not only in facing these difficulties but also in confronting a culture that uses every possible means to deny the validity of their values, goals, and experiences, I truly stand back in wonder… It is these people –former homosexuals and those who are still struggling, all across America and aboard –who stand for me as a model of everything good and possible in a world that takes the human heart, and the God of that heart, seriously. In my various explorations within the worlds of psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, and psychiatry, I have simply never before seen such profound healing.”

Catholic teaching concerning the virtue of Chastity is the same for everyone, no exceptions. And the healing available to everyone who placed their lives under Christ, and embraces, with his help, that virtue, is also the same for everyone. The names of the SSA organizations around map out an interesting route Coren has followed. He has abandoned Courage. He has sought a false Dignity by moving to an organization that promotes a false and deceptive Integrity. Meantime, in full accord with Dr. Satinover’s observation, the Courage Apostolate remains one of the finest fruits of Catholic faith in struggle and action, with Mr. Coren’s de facto denial of their existence not diminishing that one iota.

Those Evil Crusaders?

~ SO EXACTLY WHY do we now look at the Crusades as “a Very Bad Thing”? British scholar Steven Runciman is part of the answer. He pioneered the “profiteering, landless younger son rape-a-thon” theory of the Crusades. After all, Everybody Knows That, right?

Just The Facts

If you look at actual history, in many cases kings and leading nobles actually went into deep debt to fund the various crusades, including one Spanish king who literally mortgaged his country to pay the incredible costs involved. Until Runciman and others started re-writing history, the Muslims happily knew what history told them– the Crusades failed. Now, crusaders are depicted as the prototypical colonial invaders, opposing Islam and Allah’s will, invading peaceful Muslim lands.

They Punched Back! Wah!

General Saladin Would Like ALL The Things

General Saladin Would Like ALL The Things

The Crusades were a response to (a) Muslim violence against Christians and Christian pilgrims to the Holy land, (b) the near total destruction of the church & tomb of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem  by a Muslim leader, and (c) a cry for help from a Byzantine Emperor, since it was primarily Byzantium that had lost land and been ceaselessly fighting Islam for 400 and more years to that point.

That Jihad– with a very few pauses– has continued for 1400 years, and to the estimated tune of 270 MILLION deaths.

Re-writing all these awkward facts for 2014, of course, ties in nicely with cultural Marxism, the vilification of Christianity, and the re-writing of history in ideological terms. This is why ignorance of history in schools and universities is literally killing us.

To The Rescue

Thankfully, scholars like Thomas F. Madden and Rodney Stark are pulling the Crusades out of the memory hole, and remembering the whole story, because it is crucial for us to remember and know the roots of the Islamism now occupying so much of our time and money and politics. The Crusades are still with us, and can serve as an example of what to do, and what not to do, and the seriousness of Jihad then and now.

As bad as the Crusades could sometimes be, they shine in comparison to the rape, theft, enslavement and beheadings of Jihad, and were an attempt to defend Christian lands, holy sites, and lands then recently conquered by the moon-god blood cult of Mohammedanism.

~ TODAY’S LESSON— The classical Muslim theory of ownership is fairly simple. There are 4 rules:

  1. If it was ever ours, it’s still ours.
  2. If it is ours, it’s totally ours (and should be);
  3. If we mark it as ours, it’s ours.
  4. Everything should be ours, God said so.

It’s a dog-like theory of ‘mine’, but they claim that God agrees, so it’s pretty important to understand what and how they think about such matters: we own all the things. It’s all about the dominance.

Bringing The Naïve

Hence, the witless sitting ducks of the Anglican/ Episcopal Entity are letting some Imams pray in the National Cathedral (kind of a Generic American Prayer Barn for state funerals and stuff, but also an Episcopal Church) in Washington DC. No big, you say, Jews & other kinds of Christians have prayed there. Yes, but.

Islam is a territorial conquest/ dominance cult. Once it’s been prayed in (see rule #3) , they think it’s theirs. For eternity. Like the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople? Even if somehow the Christian world got it back as a working cathedral, we’d only be borrowing it, according to Islam.

image013

Islam, AD732.. Note Spain & France, The Byzantines lost 1/2 their Empire.

So, from this day foward, when Muslim Friday Prayers bray forth mocking Christians and the Trinity and Jesus, the National Cathedral is a mosque, and belongs to Islam (see Rule #3). They will claim it officially, if they can, just like they are trying to ‘get back’ the former mosque in Cordoba, from back before the 1400s when most of Spain was theirs– and it still is, according to Muslim law & custom along with most of Spain– (see Rule #1).

Mine, Allah Mine!

ottoman-empire-1580

Islam, AD1580, Once Byzantium Fell

Technically, an aggressive Turkey owns all that the Safavid/ Ottoman Empire used to dominate, including Israel, the Balkans, most of the Middle East, parts of Southern France, Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, and Austria; also most of Spain, and including bits of Italy, most of the Mediterranean, all of North Africa (see Rule # 3, and Rule #4)…..

I cannot go back to Scotland, Moldova, England, or Eastern Germany and claim land and rights just because some of my ancestors lived there once. If I were Muslim, that’s exactly what I could do; and every place with a mosque is also a territorial outpost and claim on that land and area in the name of Allah, and the Dar Al-Islam (lands or house of Islam). Think: opportunistic infection; or, The Borg, from Star Trek.

Clue In, Fools

cathedral

A Jolly Nice Place For Tea!

Remember: there is no secular law, international law, human rights law, or non-Islamic law for authentic Islam– such laws are evil, or irrelevant. That’s Islam 101, which most Western Christian clergy have not learned. The wiffle-brained folks in DC having the Imams over for tea think it’s a jolly nice thing showing brotherhood, dialogue, caring & sharing, cuddly-wuddly whatnot.

Guess Who’s Coming For Tea

Awwww.. cuddles!.. they came for tea! (and claimed the place forever). Who’s coming over for tea, exactly?

The Islamists expected at the cathedral include representatives from theIslamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). In 2009, both groups were confirmed as co-conspirators in a conspiracy to deliver funds to the Gaza-based Hamas jihad group, which regularly launches attacks to kill Jews in Israel.

How nice. What an insulting smack in the face to Christians, and Anglicans, in parts of the world who are dying and being persecuted by Islam.

They Want What-Now?

That’s only if you stick to the surface, and stupidly or arrogantly assume that all people think alike, and that what Islam has been doing to the world for 1400 years, at the cost of 270 000 000 deaths is all about caring and sharing. Remember: they actually believe that world is theirs, and if we will not surrender & convert, then we will be plundered, either beheaded or enslaved (2014: like the Yazidis & Christian Iraqis and Syrians), or made pay the special punishment tax and various humiliations as 4th class citizens, (2014: like the Egyptian Copts).  Ask yourself: how many church buildings are there in Saudi Arabia? Zero.

Keepsies!

AmericaisthegreatSatan

This is territorial, symbolic and religious claim to the largest religious building in the heart of The Great Satan, America (Israel being “The Little Satan”). Imagine a group of Pentecostals (somehow) allowed to pray in Mecca, and “claiming” the Ka’aba Mosque for Jesus.

Our own ignorance, good intentions, fear, desire to placate, and multicultural arrogance is the greatest part of the problem with invasive aggressive Muslim Brotherhood & Hamas Islam (fronted across America by activist-style groups like CAIR, ISNA, and the other alphabet soup of cover-names and double-faces).

Be Vigilant, Learn Up

Says Andrew Bieszad over at One Peter 5,

“My advice to fellow Catholics is twofold: First, do all in your power to prevent your local church from being used for Muslim prayers, because it is about domination, not dialogue. Second, prepare spiritually, mentally, and yes, even physically to combat an increasingly aggressive Islam. While this may be a “historic event,” seen only for its spiritual significance, it may well be the hallmark of much more.”

They Muslims are at war, stealth & otherwise; they are deadly serious, and they know we are mostly clueless. THIS– this is what happens to people who ignore or mis-learn (or dreamily wish otherwise) than the actual lessons of history. ~

~ THE INTERTUBES have been with us since the mid-90s, and now– for many Westerners, it’s hard to imagine life without it.

Still, many otherwise decent and clever people on FaceBook and blogs and websites make the classic mistake of forgetting what the internet, at bottom, really IS.

Links.

That’s it. Linking from one page or portal to other sources of information, news, kitty pictures, or why Peter Jackson and George RR Martin are in a dead heat for exploitative money-making. Whatevs.

So, if you mention on your blog-post or FaceBook that old Great-Uncle so-an-so served in such and such a unit, in the battle of whozits, it behooves you to, say, link to his unit or service record, a YouTube video about the battle, a picture of a piece of schrapnel from the great-avuncular arse which he passed on to you, a link to a museum where you donated said bit of arse-schrapnel, so all might enjoy it, and so on.

The other day on FaceBook, some people were gushing over some lovely church music.

~ ITEM: Amazon: The Wal-Mart of the Internet

~ ITEM: Why Amazon Went Big Brother

~ SURE, IT’S handier & fast. But Kindle or other formats of e-book have some real and inherent problems.

In the world of books, Amazon and Google are both bossy giga-giants. A little while back, my Kindle for PC (I have about 80 books on it, most of them free or on sale) would not let me read something I was currently half-way through, without that I re-downloaded it again. You know, because bullies like to rub people’s noses in it, and tell people what to do.

Think that’s bad? It gets much worse:

In July 2009, The New York Times reported that amazon.com deleted all customer copies of certain books published in violation of US copyright laws by MobileReference, including the books Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm from users’ Kindles. This action was taken with neither prior notification nor specific permission of individual users. Customers did receive a refund of the purchase price and, later, an offer of an Amazon gift certificate or a check for $30. 

Removed. Without permission or notification. Just– gone. A brave new world of books: beyond ironic that it was Orwell’s books in this case.

tablet-big-brother

UnKindled

I was underwhelmed. So much for the ‘bold new age’ of freedom which the web and related book-technology were supposed to bring us. Even more, I’m concluding that books as a teaching/ entertaining technology are well suited to how humans need to pay attention to things– without the million-and-one distractions of a computer or hand-held, as if we were all in the midst of a circus, and not trying to attend to our reading.

Now, I understand that the authors and publishers ‘own’ the words, but still, I’ve yet to see any author, publisher, or store do this to a physical book in my home, or at the local liberry. Books are a more permanent, less tamperable record of whatever an author was on about.

Barring literal physical destruction, or the accidents of history, books abide. That’s a blessing.

DisappearingProse

Ether In The Wind

Digital books are inherently less permanent, no matter e-clouds and suchlike, which all presume your e-reader or computer is available & working, has power, that the internets are working, and that some intellectual tyrant hasn’t decided to delete or “good-think” e-books on currently unpopular topics. FaceBook regularly blocks and deletes things which their drones disapprove of, or someone complains about. Why not the same treatment applied to books?

Not feminist enough? Not sufficiently fawning towards a regime? Not pro-homosexual enough? Too old fashioned, or religious, or complicated, or rabble-rousing, or…. you get the idea. Of course, burning books just looks bad.. now, with a few clicks, the ever-changing notions of the moment will be found in all books permitted to exist– yet no longer allowed to say what their authors meant them to say. Never mind the capacity of Amazon to report your reading habits to the authorities. ‘Just trust us’ is the mantra of tyrants.

Kindle? Nah. I’m going back to buying serious books I wish to own in the dead-tree format, where the words won’t blow away, and where I don’t have to ask nicely for some giant company to let me read something I already paid for.

And no, I won’t be buying via Amazon.com.

Kill, Christians, Kill!

ncis-cbs

~ ITEM: NCIS (TV series); Full episode guide Season 7

~ ITEM: Honor killing

~ WHEN IT BEGAN in 2003, NCIS (under the care of Donald P. Bellisario) was pretty clear about Jihad. It spoke truly, and noted that most terrorism in the modern era can be traced to militant Islam.

By 2009,it looks very much as if someone at CBS got to the writers. In an episode originally aired 10 days before Christmas (Dec 15, 2009, ‘Faith’), we get the basic heavy-handed apologetic for just how awesome and awesomer Islam is.

You know, because by the end of the episode, it’s the Christian brother of a slain convert from Christianity who turns out to have murdered him– wait for it– for family ‘honour’… because honour killing is a totally Christian activity. We just can’t stop ourselves.. I’ve been planning on murdering some female relatives just this week. Episode 7.10 = Islam Is Utterly Awesome, But Christians Will Murder their convert children.

We all remember the story told by Jesus of the Prodigal Son, where the shamed and outraged father and brother of a wastrel son go out and bludgeon the wastrel to death for his sins and besmirching the family name, right? Not so much.

Oopsie Daisies

Great episode, NCIS, except– that would be Muslims who are the main perpetrators of such murders, along with a smattering of Hindus and Sikhs who engage in the practice, to the tune of 20 000 dead women, teens, and children a year. That we know of: “the overwhelming majority of honor killings are perpetrated by Muslims against Muslims (90% of honor killings known to have taken place in Europe and the United States from 1998 to 2008)” [ Phyllis Chesler, Are Honor Killings Simply Domestic Violence?, Middle East Quarterly, Spring 2009, pp. 61–69; Meforum.org. Retrieved on 1 October 2011. ].

Against this, we don’t see a presentation of Christianity or Judaism, but something to do with families being nice, and Santa Claus. Muhammed vs. Santa? Really?!

Sweet Little Lies

The terribly sad thing, therefore, is that television, TV networks, and the writers of NCIS turned their actors into sock-puppets for the worst kind of lying, pandering, and cover-up for Islam, Jihad, Stealth-Jihad, and cultural domination: a deliberate deception of their audience, too.

Shame on NBC, NCIS, whoever pushed them around, and on our gutless elites and chattering classes for such gutless pandering to barbarism, supremacism, and pussy-footing in our civilizational war.. and for not bothering to know any better. ~
