Thanksgiving Hymn: “Now Thank We All Our God”

Words: Martin Rinkart, 1636; translated by Catherine Winkworth, 1863 (adapted)

Now thank we all our God with hearts and hands and voices,
who wondrous things has done, in whom his world rejoices;
who from our mothers’ arms has blessed us on our way
with countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.

O may this bounteous God through all our life be near us,
with ever joyful hearts and blessed peace to cheer us,
to keep us in his grace, and guide us when perplexed,
and free us from all ills of this world, in the next.

All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given,
with Christ his blessed son, who reign in highest heaven—
the one eternal God, whom heaven and earth adore;
for thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.

A blessed and happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians! 🙂

Date Set For ‘Straight Pride’ Parade In Boston

Culture War Can Be Waged Back!
 

BOSTON (CBS) – Organizers of what they’ve dubbed a “Straight Pride” parade say they will be receiving a license from the City of Boston to hold the event on August 31.

Organizers held a press conference on Wednesday outside of City Hall after their public event application was approved. The parade is being put together by a group calling itself “Super Happy Fun America.”

John Hugo said he has been told the group will be able to hold the event on August 31.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh previously said he could not deny the group based on their values. Walsh will not attend the straight pride parade.

“Permits to host a public event are granted based on operational feasibility, not based on values or endorsements of beliefs. The City of Boston cannot deny a permit based on an organization’s values,” the mayor said earlier this month.

The group initially requested to raise the “straight pride flag” on City Hall flag polls. This request was denied as city officials said they have sole discretion on what flags fly outside City Hall.

Hugo said Wednesday that Milo Yiannopoulos, a political commentator whose events have regularly been met by protesters, will be the parade’s grand marshal.

“We want people to be aware that there is not only one side of things. There’s a lot of people that are uncomfortable with a lot of things that are going on in our country and they’re afraid to speak up,” Hugo said in a previous interview with WBZ-TV.

 
Having Milo as grand marshal though is like how the video below doesn’t go with the great lyrics:
 

 
Ah well. I guess the point is to troll and trigger, and it sure will! 🙂

 

Alabama woman indicted for manslaughter after miscarrying when shot because she started the fight

God bless Alabama!

An Alabama woman who suffered a miscarriage after being shot last year has been indicted for manslaughter in the loss of the fetus.

Marshae Jones was five months pregnant in December 2018 when, during a fight, Ebony Jemison shot her in the stomach —

but a Jefferson County grand jury said the former mom-to-be was responsible because she started the brawl, AL.com reported.

“Let’s not lose sight that the unborn baby is the victim here,’’ said Pleasant Grove Police Lt. Danny Reid.

Initially, police charged Jemison, 23, with manslaughter but the charges were dismissed when a grand jury didn’t indict her.

Even though Jones didn’t fire the shots that killed her unborn baby girl, authorities said she caused the death by initiating the fight.

“It was the mother of the child who initiated and continued the fight which resulted in the death of her own unborn baby,” Reid said.

“[The fetus] had no choice in being brought unnecessarily into a fight where she was relying on her mother for protection.”

Cops said the fight was about the unborn baby’s father.

Jones was taken into custody Wednesday. She will be transferred to Jefferson County Jail and held on $50,000 bond.

A life was lost because of the mother’s irresponsible behaviour.

Too bad they couldn’t also charge the other woman, too, though.

But a great precedent has been set!

Musical Interlude: two new ones from Rammstein, “Deutschland” and “Radio”

I like Rammstein, as I’ve shared here previously; I recently heard one of these two new songs of theirs (from their soon-to-be-released new album) on the radio, and the DJ referenced the other new one; here are their videos, which are stylish and epic as always, and a couple links to articles containing translations of the lyrics into English. NSFW, due to a bit of boobage in the second, and probably for the violence in the first. Enjoy. 🙂
