It is easy for the rich to believe

Some things never change…

It is easy for the rich and happy to believe that they have divine approval. What better assurance could they have than the pleasure and power in which they stand? In these secure ones the nation felt itself not only prosperous but divinely favored. Since they are conscious of representing the country, interference with them and their pursuits would be interfering with the country’s welfare. To disturb their order is to disturb the social order. To criticize their religion is to prove oneself a heretic and a blasphemer. God is on the side of those in power (they think), and so to the security of financial and political position the leading people of Amos’ day added the comforting conviction that they were Jehovah’s chosen people—chosen to be thus superior and secure.

Amos, Prophet of a New Order,

Decent rhetorical questions for the ‘people should be free to marry whomever they want’ crowd, but of diminishing effectiveness, alas…

Prince LaQroix pointedly asks:

Alas, there are increasingly more progs in favour of polygamy and incest; so that retort only works on the largely apolitical yet reflexively liberal crowd, not on hardened ideologues such as the SJWs of social media.

*Update: Prince LaQroix asks another good question:

ssm2

During sane times, that would silence the other party. Alas, we live in insane times…

SATIRE: Unemployed Gender Studies Major Sues ‘The Patriarchy’

Will S.:

One could just imagine it…

From the Daily Currant.

Excerpt:

An unemployed gender studies major from Eugene, Ore. sued “The Patriarchy” today in federal court for refusing to give her a job.

In a 25-page brief, attorneys for Sarah Miller-Jones, 24, argue that gender discrimination from the patriarchy has prevented their client from finding gainful employment since she graduated from university three years ago.

Christian Book Chain Pulls ‘Heaven Visitation Resources’ Over Sufficiency of Scripture Resolution

Christian Book Chain Pulls ‘Heaven Visitation Resources’ Over Sufficiency of Scripture Resolution.

Good news.

NASHVILLE – One of the nation’s largest Christian bookstore chains has announced that it has pulled all of its “Heaven visitation resources” following the passage of a Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) resolution surrounding the “sufficiency of Scripture regarding the afterlife.”

LifeWay Christian Resources told the Baptist Press this week that it will no longer sell items pertaining to those who have claimed to have visited Heaven. It states that its decision was partly due to consideration of the resolution, which was agreed upon last June and warned Christians not to let “the numerous books and movies purporting to explain or describe the afterlife experience … become their source and basis for an understanding of the afterlife.”

[…]

The announcement means that books such as “90 Minutes in Heaven” by Don Piper, “Heaven is for Real” by Todd Burpo and “The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven” by Kevin and Alex Malarkey will no longer be available for purchase at LifeWay.

As previously reported, in January, Alex Malarkey, who was in a coma for two months following a car accident nearly a decade ago, wrote an open letter in January admitting that his book about dying and going to Heaven was fabricated.

Never trust someone named Malarkey. ;)

Good news from France

The National Front made big gains, and even eclipsed the Socialists, in local elections.

Naturally, the Establishment is panicked:

the Speaker of the European Parliament has ordered a fraud investigation, accusing the National Front of siphoning off the assistants’ salaries to finance its political campaigns in France.

[…]

National Front leader Marine Le Pen simply shrugged off the charges as political hatchet jobs ordered by the French Socialist prime minister.

As a defence, it’s thin, but apparently enough as the French electorate seems quite indifferent to the charges: last week the National Front picked up 25 per cent of the vote, its highest score ever in local elections.

One reason for the public’s indifference may be that the French public believes that all politicians are guilty of similar misbehaviour.

No doubt. The voters are smarter than the Establishment wishes.

They know the E.U.’s actions are politically motivated, and don’t buy into them.

In two years all the ministerial jobs will be up for grabs.

The nightmare scenario for many mainstream politicians is that in an atmosphere of a pox on all their houses, the National Front might be in the running for many of them, including the top job of all — president of France.

Great! Vive la France!
