“Jim Bakker is a guy I haven’t heard about for a long time. You may remember him from his wild prepper merch, especially his giant buckets of what appeared to be slop. Well now he’s back and he has some weird thoughts about climate change. We take a look at a few televangelist’s opinions and solutions. Spoiler- they’re all terrible.”

I’m far more concerned about Jim’s followers murdering people.

Christian Nationalists are Preparing for War: a Conversation with Brad Onishi…

“Professor Bradley Onishi is co-host of the Straight White American Jesus podcast and author of the new book, “Preparing for War: The Extremist History of White Christian Nationalism – and What Comes Next.”

BOOK: https://www.bradonishi.com/books/

This is an accurate way of describing how I was raised as a child, and into adulthood.

The things being described here…I experienced those, like they are represented.

This is an accurate and fair accounting.

Yes…Yes…Reformed christianity does exist…with gays, lesbians and other minorities forming their own christian churches…and they allow people to come and go at will, without judgement…Those are more “This is a place for you. Take and fellowship as you need.” kinds of places and groups.

Christian nationalism and christian terrorism, is not an issue with that segment of christianity…and generally, they’re a pretty positive presence in society…

…While they still have their issues…they are not the groups we’re talking about, when we discuss the very real threats of christian nationalism.

These two groups exist in the same world…but they are not the same thing.

…We need to not allow confusion, to blind us towards the violent threat that’s been staring us down.

This has never been hyperbole…The threat is there…It’s just that most people have not seen or lived it, first hand…Hence, to them…in their mind, “it’s not real”.

The premise has never been that all self identified christians are on board with this…

…The premise is that there exists hard core, self identified christian organizations, who are isolationist in nature, who have a victim complex, who are very hostile towards other social demographics, who condition their children to believe inaccurate things and accordingly behave certain ways, who tell themselves they are constantly under attack…and who foster a violent rage against everyone they claim is attacking them.

Their rage and intolerance has been boiling under the surface for decades…They outwardly talk about these things, in their groups and media…They have for as far back as I can remember…And this is why I am not shocked, at the disgraceful mess U.S. politics currently are, or the growing mass violence perpetuated by them…

…This has all been there, clearly in front of us…to be seen by those willing to look at it, and call it for what it is.

Remaining with our heads in the sand only keeps us in peril.

What’s Causing the Trans Explosion? – Helen Joyce…

….

Date: January 12, 2023

01) LINK


“Helen Joyce is the author of ‘Trans: When Ideology Meets Reality’ and the director of advocacy for ‘Sex Matters’, a campaign group on a mission to re-establish that sex matters in rules, laws, policies, language and culture. https://www.thehelenjoyce.com/

CHAPTERS:
00:00 Intro
05:18 Has Technology Affected the Number of People Transitioning?
08:40 Motivations for Transitioning: Gender-Nonconforming Children and Gay Adults
11:35 Why Aren’t We Able to Discuss the Trans Issue in an Open and Honest Way?
13:23 Gender Dysphoria & Boys Who Transition Later in Life
24:16 Have Previous Mental Health Issues Over Time Become Trans Issues?
30:18 The Trans Issue in the Prison System
43:25 How to Safeguard Children
51:14 Is the UK Making Progress?
1:01:16 What’s the One Thing We’re Not Talking About”

Very controversial to say “they’re sterilizing gay kids”…though, in a roundabout way…this may be technically accurate in some cases.

I’m not saying I endorse everything Helen says…But, this is a mostly intelligent and honest conversation taking place…It should be consumed and digested…Not followed blindly…but understood.

Personal opinion…if you are transgendered, that is wonderful…and I think you are better off keeping your birth anatomy intact, accepting who and how you are.

That is by no means any dictation on what you must do…It’s just a genuine, caring and rationally based opinion…You have every moral right to alter your own body, as you please…I just foresee it as unwise, to charge off in that direction with heavy expectations.

Aesthetics are aesthetics…They are only skin deep…They cannot make you whole, or address your core issues with self acceptance.

You may find it’s been a whole lot of pain and financial debt, that’s failed to provide the outcome you wanted.

I would also want to pose the following thought to you…

…Just because you feel more in tune with male or female stereotypical attractions, mannerisms and sensibilities, does not mean you “were not meant to” have a penis, have a vagina, have breasts, have certain facial or muscle structures, etc…

There have always been masculine women and effeminate men…Many have not liked, where this placed them socially…Maybe society just needs to finally learn how to accept gender nonconforming people…and maybe you need to learn how to tell intolerant society to get out of your head?

It is treacherous…that society has convinced you, that you need to suffer something like this, just to fit into it’s expectations of you.

You don’t need to chase after that…

Everything…every concept you have ever encountered in society, is somebody else’s idea of order and correctness…That does not oblige you, that it has to be yours.

As biology goes…the most healing, pure and lasting acceptance, is accepting yourself as you are.

Thank you to Helen, for the “pedophiles don’t deserve what they get in prison” comment…That did not go unnoticed by me.

It’s nice to see a bit of humanity, understanding and empathy.

That takes guts and integrity.

…”…a lot of these people who created this ideology, have a pedophilic past” [Francis]…

You might be surprised as to how many of us pedophiles [and other MAPs] do not endorse this, and even take issues with some of it’s manifestations.

We try to be respectful and humane about these issues…It is something we observe with interest, from a distance…But it is not something that we are actively behind, trying to push.

It is categorically wrong, to think of this as “a pedophile issue”.

…Oh, Helen…don’t sink to tainting pedophiles like that…

While I would agree, recognizing a child’s own bodily autonomy is a beneficial step towards recognizing a child’s sexual autonomy…that does not mean that “pedophiles want the world turned upside down”.

A pedophile accepting world is not upside down, in the first place…It’s just coming to terms, with how nature has made humans…It is empathetic intelligence in action.

…And “drag queen story hour”, again, is it’s own thing…We are two distinct groups, with a bit of overlap, simultaneously existing in the same world…

…Though, I do look forward to the day where “pedophile story hour” in libraries is a thing! ;-P

…There’s nothing wrong with reading stories to children…regardless of who you are.

“Gender swapping penguins” [or however she put it] is not bullshit…There has been a lot of behavior documented in nonhuman animals, that disputes commonly held human phobias and intolerance…Most specific, the claim that “that happens nowhere [else] in nature”.

Basic animal behaviors are shared by all species of animal…including humans…and humans are not the only species to be homosexual, bisexual, pedophilic or gender nonconforming.

This is absolutely relevant.

Ezra Miller Gets Off! The Flash Actor is NOT Going to Jail!…

“Ezra Miller gets away with it again. After pleading guilty to theft charges, Miller gets a slap on the wrist and avoids jailtime. OF COURSE. Warner will NOT hold this lunatic responsible for YEARS of insane and illegal behavior. All to protect a movie that people are only going to watch for Michael Keaton’s Batman, anyway.”

Did Kneon just call Ezra Millers victims “bitches”?

Well…good for Ezra that he isn’t going to prison…Honestly, his defense sounds like it might be plausible.

I don’t care if he stays in the DC franchise or not.

I’ll likely go see the flash movie…but, I really only care about the actual DC relaunch movie.

Congressman George Santos resists growing pressure to resign: Collection 3…

Date: January 12, 2023

01) LINK


“There are growing calls from members of his own party for newly elected Republican Congressman George Santos to resign over the false claims he made about his background. His campaign funding is also under scrutiny. CBS News congressional correspondent Scott MacFarlane joins Errol Barnett and Lana Zak with more on the reaction.”

Good on those standing up to this fraud, regardless of what party they are in.

Republicans call on Rep. George Santos to resign:

“New York Republicans called on Rep. George Santos to resign following revelations that he fabricated or embellished much of his background while running for Congress last year.”

George Santos accused of breaking campaign finance laws:

“New York Rep. George Santos is facing a formal ethics complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission. The complaint accuses the Republican of illegally using campaign funds for personal expenses and submitting false information about the source of his campaign donations. Scott MacFarlane reports.”

Small, local paper uncovered and reported George Santos scandal before November election:

“A watchdog group filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission accusing newly sworn-in Rep. George Santos of illegally using campaign funds and masking the source of those funds. The North Shore Leader, a small paper on Long Island, broke the scandal before the November election. By the time other outlets picked it up, Santos had been elected. Grant Lally joined Geoff Bennett to discuss.”

Democrats deliver ethics complaint to Rep. Santos’ office:

“New York Democrats Reps. Dan Goldman and Ritchie Torres delivered an ethics complaint to Rep. Georgie Santos, R-N.Y., at his office. The two democrats have asked the House Ethics Committee to investigate his past financial disclosures.”

George Santos faces ethics complaint from House Democrats:

“Two House Democrats delivered an ethics complaint to New York Rep. George Santos on Tuesday, adding to the Republican’s growing list of problems. The Democrats are asking the House Ethics Committee to investigate whether Santos broke the law by failing to file “timely, accurate and complete financial disclosure reports.”

Um…Lying about your background while running for government office IS unethical!

So is refusing to resign and leave.

What a complete scumbag.
