Dogs as Family Members – A Sign of Cultural Decay

Will S.:

“Dogs are still used in scientific research. I live near a facility where lots of dogs go in but don’t come out. A society that on one hand does that but on the other hand treats dogs as stand-ins for children and husbands is suffering from schizophrenia.”

Agreed. Same as a society that on the one hand, acknowledges that unborn children can learn things, and encourages pregnant women to talk to their unborn children, play them music, etc., but then on the other hand, permits them to kill them if they don’t want them.

I had a dog. I like dogs. Dogs are not people, though, and they’re not “family”. They’re not human beings.

People who take dogs to restaurants as if they are dates, women who prefer dogs to husbands, couples who view dogs as substitutes for children — none of these are healthy cultural indicators.

News media treating the death of dogs (and other animals) with equal weight to the death of people is not a healthy cultural indicator.

In the wake of the riots, two Baltimore evangelical pastors lecture white Christians

Naturally…

Baltimore Pastor of Diverse Church Located Just Blocks From Rioting Says White Christians Need to Acknowledge Systemic Racism

The pastor of a youthful and racially-diverse congregation located just a few blocks from the CVS pharmacy set on fire by rioters amid otherwise peaceful protests in Baltimore says it’s time for white Christians to acknowledge the existence of systemic racism in America and to listen to those who are angry and hurting in order to help find meaningful solutions.

“There are deep systemic issues. There is no surface issue that’s really the cause. There’s some deep stuff that’s been going on that’s been going on for a lot of years,” Joel Kurz, lead pastor of The Garden Church in Central/West Baltimore, told The Christian Post on Wednesday.

And so racism excuses their behaviour? That’s how progressives argue…

 

 

As the rioting, looting and burning of homes and businesses that erupted earlier this week threatened to overshadow the weeks-long peaceful protests that have been ongoing in Baltimore, the word “thug” began rolling off of lips and popping up on social media accounts, including on those belonging to some Christians shocked by the violent scenes playing out on TV networks like CNN. However, one Baltimore pastor, recalling the Apostle Paul’s transition from the persecutor Saul, warned against simply condemning “rioters as unsalvageable thugs.”

“Resist the temptation to condemn rioters as unsalvageable thugs and instead pray that God would transform these Sauls into Pauls,” Dan Hyun, lead pastor at The Village Church in Baltimore, tweeted just after midnight on Tuesday.

Excuse me; they are thugs, unless and until any repent of their ways (as Paul did). Period.

Typical…

 

French teen’s skirt deemed too long for her to attend school

Yeah.

It’s not often you hear about women being criticized for wearing skirts that are too long. But that’s exactly what happened to one French teen, who was barred from attending class because her ankle-length maxi-skirt was deemed a “provocation.”

The 15-year-old Muslim student was twice kept from class earlier this month because the head teacher considered her long skirt too religious by the standards of France’s secularity laws.

The internet responded by deeming the decision ridiculous and the ensuing outrage spawned the hashtag #JePorteMaJupeCommeJeVeux, translated into English as “I wear my skirt as I please.”

Ugh…

Much as I don’t like Muslims invading Europe through lax immigration policies, I admire their holding to their faith, in the face of rabid secularist ideology.

But I hate both the secularist French regime AND most of those protesting on social media, who are framing this in feminist terms (“I’ll wear my skirt as I please”, which can also mean as short as one pleases, too); some explicitly:

Fortunately, there are some saner voices (even if alas, they use the same bloody hashtag):

 

Real men don’t hold purses–unless their wife tells them to.

Will S.:

I have been following the related convo on Dalrock’s previous post (which inspired this one) with interest, since the Gospel Coalition who are promoting this post are mostly Reformed and Reformed Baptists, many of them prominent in the North American scene. I’m dismayed to see them getting behind this, but I’m not surprised, given what Doug Wilson and Mark Driscoll and their ilk have been like, in promoting Blue Pill churchianity… All too typical these days, alas…

Originally posted on Dalrock:

Barnabas pointed out a sermon by Pastor Jason Meyer titled Fooled by False Leadership.  In the sermon Paster Meyer offers an example of “Servant Leadership”, a modern Christian term numerous readers have asked for a definition of.  I would say this example pretty much sums it up:

Showing his embarrassment is a way to show that this is not what he is comfortable doing. It is a little bit like when your wife asks you to carry her purse. There is no manly way to carry a purse. If you sling it on your shoulder, you show that you are a little too comfortable with it. But you can’t refuse because you really want to serve your wife and help her out. So you carry the purse in a way that shows your discomfort. You hold it by scrunching the handle and holding it out several inches from your body—just…

Apparently the Pope believes in the mythical ‘gender pay gap’, and is appalled by it

(We know it’s a myth, but he hasn’t got the memo yet.)

Calls it ‘scandalous’:

Pope Francis added his voice Wednesday to the feminist anthem of equal pay for equal work, saying it’s “pure scandal” that women earn less than men for doing the same job.

Francis also lambasted the attitude of those who blame the crisis in families on women getting out of the house to work. He said such attitudes are a form of “machismo” that shows how men “want to dominate women.”

Francis made the comments during his Wednesday general audience, which he has been devoting to different aspects of family life before a big meeting on family issues in October.

Francis said the “radical equality” that Christianity proposes between husband and wife must bear new fruit.

“We should support with decisiveness the right to equal pay for equal work,” he said. “Why is it a given that women must earn less than men? No! They have the same rights. The disparity is pure scandal.”

Francis has spoken out frequently about how the Catholic Church in general must give greater value to the “feminine genius,” and has called for women to take on greater decision-making roles in the church, though he has ruled out women’s ordination or having women head Vatican congregations.

Only about 18 per cent of Holy See employees are women, up from 17 per cent four years ago. Currently, only two women hold the rank of undersecretary in a Vatican department.

While speaking out about the need for a greater role for women in the church, the 78-year-old Argentine Jesuit has raised eyebrows with some seemingly tone-deaf comments: He has said Europe in many places resembles an “infertile” grandmother. He has urged nuns not to be “old maids.” And he once welcomed new female members of the church’s most prestigious theological commissions as “strawberries on the cake.”

On Wednesday, he came to women’s defence. He took the biblical Adam to task for having blamed Eve for having given him the forbidden apple. “It’s always the women’s fault,” Francis said sarcastically. “Poor woman! We must defend women!”

Well, the Fall of humanity is the fault of both… Adam may have been wrong to blame Eve, but Eve was wrong to partake in the first place…

So, Christianity proposes ‘radical equality’ between husband and wife?

Oh yeah?

That’s not what God’s Word says

Miss Piggy to receive feminist award from the Brooklyn Museum, presented by Gloria Steinem

Yeah.

“For more than 40 years of blazing feminist trails with determination and humor, and for her groundbreaking role inspiring generations the world over,” Miss Piggy is set to receive an important honor from the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

The Museum announced that Miss Piggy will be honored with the Sackler Center 2015 First Award, and will appear in conversation with Gloria Steinem, herself already an honoree, on June 4. Kermit the Frog is also scheduled to attend.

Previous recipients include Julie Taymor, Sandra Day O’Connor, and Anita F. Hill. Tickets to the private event are available for purchase.

When reached for comment, Miss Piggy only had this to say:

giphy
Actually, apparently ‘she’ ‘said':

“Moi is thrilled.”

So, the woman who said that a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle, is going to give an award to a fictitious character, portrayed by a marionette…

We truly are living in transparodistic times, alas…

Winning comment goes to Arch:

Congratulations, Miss Piggy, your physical and emotional abuse, as well as your consistent control and emasculation of the passive, meek, beta, Kermit the Frog, embodies the feminist movement. Appropriate for a pig to be the face of the cause. Congrats again!

Hear, hear! :)
