OK, Now Do Mohammed

The Chairhumanoid of New Testament Studies at College of the Holy Cross is loopy as a loon.

Writing for The Fenwick Review, Elinor Reilly of the Holy Cross class of 2018 argues in a March 26 article that Professor Tat-Siong Benny Liew’s “unconventional readings of Scripture” have brought “a new theological perspective to Holy Cross.”

Saint John’s constant references to Jesus wanting water, giving water, and leaking water “speak to Jesus’ gender indeterminacy and hence his cross-dressing and other queer desires,” Liew contends.

In passages that would be considered blasphemous to devout Christians, Liew eroticizes Jesus’ relationship to his disciples and even to God the Father, proposing that “Jesus himself needs others to cum with the Father.”

This eroticization can be found in Liew’s interpretation of Christ’s passion and crucifixion as well, which Christians solemnly commemorate during Holy Week.

“What I am suggesting is that, when Jesus’ body is being penetrated, his thoughts are on his Father. He is, in other words, imagining his passion experience as a (masochistic?) sexual relation with his own Father,” Liew has written.

Deranged Woman Advocates for Roman Catholic Theocracy on the Floor of the House

In the course of an uninterrupted eight-hour rant on the House floor (Republicans being too cowed to go through the “And still she persisted” thing again), Botox-addled Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi told Republicans they better pass Amnesty for illegal immigrants because the Pope demands it.

As she neared the end of her second hour (of her rant), Pelosi said she considered asking the House to pray for Dreamers all day.

“During the night when I was thinking and praying so hard about our Dreamers, I thought, maybe we should just pray all day on the floor of Congress,” she said.

“Maybe I should bring my rosary blessed by the pope … his holiness, Pope Francis, or the one before that, Benedict,” she added. “I have the honor and privilege of receiving rosaries blessed by several popes in my lifetime.”

One notes that this woman has repeatedly voted in the House to ensure that late-term abortions are legal and, if possible, taxpayer-funded.

Needless to say, any time a Republican says “God Bless America,” the left goes into paroxysms about “theocracy.” But leftists want the USA overrun by third-world migrants and, besides, they know that Pelosi’s professed faith is completely insincere. So, she gets a pass.

Some have noted that Democrats have never hijacked the legislative process in order to advocate for working class Americans, or veterans. Nope, the Democrats reserve their concerns for illegal immigrants and, before that, criminal thugs who get shot by police while committing crimes.

By the way, a Roman Catholic bishop last week effusively praised the Chinese Government as “those who are best implementing the social doctrine of the (Roman Catholic) Church.” I am not making this up.

Depending on your POV, this story will either cheer you or mortify you.

After years of attending church and working with local Church leaders, Christofferson was baptized for the second time in October 2014. This marked a new beginning for him in the Church but also a heartbreaking end to a 19-year relationship.

“When the time came that I was worthy and wanted to again become a member of the Church, after months of conversation, my partner’s generous desire was that I should follow whatever path I felt would be the one of greatest happiness for me,” Christofferson recalls. “He had reason to feel that I had chosen the Church over him, and yet he was willing to support my decision despite its cost in his life. I can think of no higher tribute to pay to his selflessness and love.”

The Social Left Comes for the Churches

Posted by V the K at 6:07 pm - July 6, 2016.
Filed under: Religion (General)

Remember when the “Separation of Church and State” was a big deal to the left? Seems like such a very long time ago. Now, the left is all about the subjugation of the church to the State.

My friends and colleagues at the Alliance Defending Freedom announced today that they were filing suit against the Iowa Civil Rights Commission to block enforcement of gender identity guidelines that purport to regulate “a church service open to the public.” News flash — virtually every church service is open to the public.

It’s unclear to me how a branch of the Iowa state government has determined that a “church service open to the public” does not have a “bona fide religious purpose,” but there it is. Under current guidance, churches in Iowa must become “members only” to exercise their religious liberty. It’s tough to imagine this guidance surviving even liberal judicial review, but even if struck down it shows where some on the Left want to take the law. Not even the sanctuary is safe.

Nature Lovers

Combine the left’s Eco-Environmentalist Religion with the Left’s obsessive sexual fetishism and you get this:

As you venture deeper into the rooms you will find condoms that fit your fingers and surgical masks with grass sprouting from the mouth.

This is the sex house of an ecosexual, a person who makes the land their lover, bringing a whole new meaning to “environmentally friendly” and “whore-ticulture”.

The “Ecosexual Bathhouse” is in the tangles of the Melbourne Royal Botanic Gardens, created by Ian Sinclair and Loren Kronemyer.

Ecosexuals have fantasies about nature and use their senses of touch to strengthen their romantic and sensual feelings towards the environment.

The whole idea is if somebody can develop sexual attraction and a love for the biosphere, they will in turn look after it going into the future — it’s said to be a type of activism.

And yet, they mock Christians as freaks and weirdoes.

How Awkward

“God” is a “problematic” subject with the Democrat Left.

Also, America never really was all that great, according to one of the Democrat Left’s favorite news anchors.

Leftists, Gay-Friendly Church Features Atheist Pastor

In a society where a seventy year old man with a penis can claim to be a brave and stunning woman, and the Secretary of Homeland Security actively opposes securing the nation’s borders, why not a minister who doesn’t believe in God?

There is not one mention of God during the 70-minute service at Toronto’s West Hill United church. Bibles are nowhere to be seen. The large steel cross – one of the few remaining religious symbols in this church – is hidden behind a cascade of rainbow streamers.

But that is perhaps to be expected in a church led by an avowed atheist.

“I do not believe in a theistic, supernatural being called God,” says Gretta Vosper, the United Church of Canada minister who has led West Hill since 1997. “I don’t believe in what I think 99.99% of the world thinks you mean when you use that word.” Tor [sic] her, God is instead a metaphor for goodness and a life lived with compassion and justice.

Vosper’s outspoken commitment to a seemingly clashing set of beliefs has prompted turmoil in the open-minded United Church of Canada. A progressive Christian denomination that began ordaining women in Canada 80 years ago and for decades has allowed openly gay men and women to lead ministries, the church has been left questioning its boundaries.

“I don’t believe in what I think 99.99% of the world thinks you mean when you use that word.”How Progressive do you have to believe that the Nature of God is subject to a vote?  That’s as dumb as believing that Climate Change can be settled by a vote.



Pope Praises Cuban Dictators En Route to Lecturing American Republicans

Pope Occupy dropped in on Cuba to lavish praise on its brutal, oppressive dictatorship.

Pope Francis expressed gratitude to Cuba for its contribution to peace and the preservation of the human species in a world saturated with hatred and aggression.

The Pope will be lecturing Congress on Thursday about redistributing wealth and fighting “climate change.”

Watching the immense pomp and ceremony surrounding the pope, and seeing how streets are being closed and cordoned off… causing frustration to thousands for the convenience of His Holiness, watching as politicians jockey for the opportunity to position themselves near the Pontiff, watching as the Pontiff inserts himself into politics, and listening as the Pope hypocritically lectures “the wealthy” to redistribute their earnings to the poor while the Vatican sits on billions of dollars in assets… I realized, this is how the whole Protestant thing got started.

Rethinking the Tax Exempt Status of Churches

Posted by V the K at 8:17 pm - June 28, 2015.
Filed under: Religion (General)

With last week’s decision imposing gay marriage on the entirety of the country despite lacking any legitimate Constitutional authority to do so, the Supreme Court has put the radical left within striking distance of one of its most ambitious objectives; the taxation (and regulation) of religious institutions and houses of worship.

Drew M. at AoSHQ doesn’t think it’s a bad idea.

US bishops have spent decades advocating liberal big government programs (ObamaCare, as long as they are exempted and amnesty spring to mind) all while enjoying an exemption from its effects or sharing in the burden of the costs via their tax exemption.

Well they are going to get a taste of what they’ve been building and they aren’t going to like it one bit.

While I will lament to loss of an important American value, it won’t be the first progressives have killed. But I will laugh as they and others like them are shocked that the government they are so happy to sic on others turns on them.

Added: In the interest of interfaith comity I should note I’m looking forward to synagogues and mosques being taxed as well.

90-95% of your congregants vote for Democrats? Well, then I’m sure you’ll be happy to be subject to even more of what they impose on the rest of us.

Another Hate-Filled Religious Bigot

The LDS (Mormon) Church officially supports gay rights and condemns polygamy; contrary to the media-fed stereotype which has it the other way around.  Leftists are quick to point to one fringe preacher in the middle of nowhere who said something anti-Gay and say “See, that’s how all Christians feel. That one preacher’s statement condemns all Christians.” Mainly because it fits in with their own bigoted stereotypes, and helps promote their precious sense of victimhood.

But they will never accept that this Church Leader’s statements and experience more broadly represent Christianity than one isolated nutjob.

A high-ranking member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said he would like to see additional legal steps taken to protect religious freedom, and stamp out discrimination against gays — whose history with the church has been complex one.

Elder D. Todd Christofferson, of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles, spoke publicly on the matter last week — noting that his own family is a great example of how a harmony can be struck between members of his faith and the gay community.

“The model is the same,” Elder Christofferson said. “The Savior points the way.”

Number of people who have been defenestrated by Mormons for being gay: 0

BTW: The gay left has already smacked away the olive branch offered by the LDS Church, because it’s all-or-nothing with those people, and they would rather hate Christians than learn to get along with them.

Churches Follow the Advice of Secular Gay Leftists, Rapidly Lose Membership

Posted by V the K at 11:15 am - August 21, 2014.
Filed under: Religion (General)

The conventional wisdom among the secular left is that churches must embrace gay-marriage (as well as abortion, redistribution of wealth, gun control, global warming, and all of those other things the secular left is gung-ho for) or they will perish because they aren’t cool enough to attract hip, socially-conscious secular leftists to their denominations.

In the real world, though, it’s not working out that way. Since the Episcopal Church became the pro-gay, pro-socialism, and all the rest, its membership has fallen almost 19%. The Evangelical Lutheran Church embraced gay marriage in 2009, and its membership has taken a similar tumble and it has lost over 600 congregations. The United Church of Christ — home of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright and a bastion of bat-[stuff] crazy leftism — embraced gay marriage full-bore and has been declining rapidly, 20.5% gone and still losing members. The Presbyterian Church has lost more than 20% of its members since deciding to ordain gay and lesbian clergy.

Meanwhile, conservative evangelical congregations and Mormons (whom the Secular Left would consider ‘hardcore’) are continuing to grow.

The secular left doesn’t understand religion. To the secular left, religion is a hobby (and a silly one, at best) and churches are just social clubs. The idea that there is Eternal Truth, and that it is the role of churches to protect and preserve it, is utterly alien to people whose concept of truth is built around “it depends on what the definition of ‘is’ is.” One thing Christians understand that leftist don’t is you can follow God’s word, or you can be popular and worldly. You can’t do both.

Secular leftists don’t want to go to church; in fact, they want to destroy religion because it’s a threat to the state. Churches that follow the advice of people who want to destroy them get what they deserve. [See also, Republicans and Illegal Immigration.]

… the only belief system in America that sues to force the Government to impose it on everyone else is getting its own TV channel.

A New Jersey-based atheist group is starting the first on-demand TV channel dedicated to godlessness.

The Atheists claim their channel is necessary because — I am not making this up — Hollywood and the major media are too pro-Christian and the Atheists intend their channel as counter-programming against the endless championing of Christian morality on other news and entertainment networks.
I am thinking of the potential programs for this station.
  • Those Foolish Believers: Panel show on which all religion is mocked and ridiculed, except Islam, of course.
  • Cross-Country: Reality Show: A group of atheist lawyers travel small town America looking for public displays of the cross and filing lawsuits to have them removed.
  • Circle Jerk – News and Information: Richard Dawkins and a panel of Atheists discuss news of the day while congratulating each other on their lack of belief.
  • It’s a Void and Meaningless Existence, Charlie Brown – Special Holiday Program in Honor of Madalyn Murray O’Hair’s Birthday
  • The Smug Sense of Superiority Hour – with special guest Bill Maher
  • And of course… there will be wholesome, atheist-style, family programming

‘Noah’ and Not Getting That Religion Thing

Posted by V the K at 11:49 pm - March 30, 2014.
Filed under: Ideas & Trends,Religion (General)

Reading Matt Walsh’s review of Noah, which pretty much aligns with most of the other reviews I’ve read. The film is marketed to appeal to a religious audience, but is contemptuous of religion (the director is an atheist). Also, it’s poorly made, with ludicrous special effects, ridiculous ‘rock people,’ and a muddled plot that bears only a passing resemblance to the Biblical account.  But what struck me were the comments, many of which were along the lines of this one:

Let me ask you a question Mr. Matt Walsh, what’s the point of making this movie if it’s the same as the original story? I mean seriously, do you know nothing about movies? They are made for entertainment, not to pass down stories(Documentaries aren’t movies, they’re documentaries). New things are good. Take a look at the Harry Potter movies. The fifth one, The Order of the Phoenix, was nothing like it’s original, yet it got a 7.4, a somewhat decent review. All in all, don’t judge a movie on whether or not it sticks to the original story, treat it as it’s own story.

This comment, and others in the same vein, made me realize; to a lot of people, there really is no difference between the Harry Potter books and the Holy Bible. There are no sacred texts; no eternal truths. There is just whatever entertains you at a specific moment in time. From that starting point, it’s easy to see the producers missing the point of the Biblical story of Noah: That God will preserve the righteous and faithful, even if the rest of the world perishes because of their evil. It’s a point that doesn’t make it across when Noah, instead of being portrayed as righteous and faithful, is portrayed as deranged and obsessed (which is pretty much the standard for religious folk in the Hollywood universe; except for the Noble Mohammedans.).

Called It

Last December I predicted:

An atheist group will sue because a town’s innocuous display of religious, specifically Christian, symbols claming it made them all angry and hurt their feelers stuff.

A group of New York Atheists Theophobes claiming to be Satanists are suing to erect a monument to Satan in front of the capitol building in Oklahoma; because some else paid to put a monument to the Ten Commandments there and even though the monumnet is 1,400 miles away and no one is ever going to force them to even look at it much less change their beleif system because of it… it’s mere existence offends them so much that they have to behave like… well, like typical atheist theophobic d-bags.

8 Days. That didn’t take long.

In related Jesus-hating news, a public school teacher in California confiscated a six-year old boy’s candy canes and told him “Jesus is not allowed in school.” The candy canes were attached to a message describing the Christian historical context of the candy canes. The school district is supporting the teacher and claiming they are trying be “neutral” toward religion. On the other hand, California public schools teach the history of Islam as part of the required curriculum.

Misadventures in Multicultural Studies Indoctrination

Jeff’s post the other day about the questionable workshop at Brown University came to mind recently when I saw a very far-left Facebook friend link to this article by a professor named Warren Blumenfeld who had just retired from a position as a professor of education at Iowa State University.  The article contains the professor’s reflections and gives voice to both his lamentations and his indignity about those students who took his class who were not won over to his worldview and who had the temerity to announce that fact in their final papers.

The course was entitled “Multicultural Foundations in Schools and Society,” and Blumenfeld describes it in the following terms:

I base the course on a number of key concepts and assumptions, including how issues of power, privilege, and domination within the United States center on inequitable social divisions regarding race, ethnicity, socioeconomic class, sex, gender identity, sexual identity, religion, nationality, linguistic background, physical and mental ability/disability, and age. I address how issues around social identities impact generally on life outcomes, and specifically on educational outcomes. Virtually all students registered for this course, which is mandatory for students registered in the Teacher Education program, are pre-service teachers.

In other words, this is a required course in “multicultural studies” indoctrination.  If the course were voluntary, it would be a slightly different situation, but as a required course, it amounts to an example of the sort of thing that conservatives can easily point to as illustrating the left-wing biases of academia.

Professor Blumenfeld is particularly alarmed by the case of two female students who tell him quite boldly that the course has not changed their socially conservative Christian worldview:

On a final course paper, one student wrote that, while she enjoyed the course, and she felt that both myself and my graduate assistant — who had come out to the class earlier as lesbian — were very knowledgeable and good professors with great senses of humor, nonetheless, she felt obliged to inform us that we are still going to Hell for being so-called “practicing homosexuals.” Another student two years later wrote on her course paper that homosexuality and transgenderism are sins in the same category as stealing and murder. This student not only reiterated that I will travel to Hell if I continued to act on my same-sex desires, but she went further in amplifying the first student’s proclamations by self-righteously insisting that I will not receive an invitation to enter Heaven if I do not accept Jesus as my personal savior since I am a Jew, regardless of my sexual behavior. Anyone who doubts this, she concluded, “Only death will tell!”

Now while we might question the wisdom of both students in advertising the heresy represented by their beliefs so boldly in a graded assignment,  I think we might also be heartened by their courage in being true to their faith, even if we do not agree with all of the particulars of their worldview.

The professor, however, is shocked and appalled, and the rest of the essay is his attempt to reconcile–through reference to one leftist theory and tract after another–what he calls “our campus environment, one that emboldens some students to notify their professor and graduate assistant that their final destination will be the depths of Hell.”  Notice his word choice, there.  The problem is with the “campus environment” which “emboldens some students.”  It seems like a foreign idea to this professor to think that a university could be a place for the free and open exchange of ideas, especially those ideas that are unpopular.  I trust we will not find him quoting Voltaire or Jefferson anytime soon.

No, instead what we get is a description of and a reflection on a course that sounds like it could have been lifted straight from  the pages of Paolo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, albeit with a more contemporary reading list.  While the professor uses the (more…)
