You’re all idiots

Published

on

President Trump would have made a lot more headway last weekend if he hadn’t said “there are good people on both sides” last weekend, though nothing would have ever been good enough for the Left and MSM. No, Mr. President. No there is not. In fact, I would go so far as to say there are NO good people on either side. They’re all idiots.

Sure, you could argue that SOME might have been there just to protest the white supremacists, but what good would it do? Taking an angry group of malcontents down to confront another group of angry malcontents is never a recipie for anything but disaster. Being there was an act of stupidity. From here on out I’ll have no sympathy for anyone who gets hurt or killed at these things. Doesn’t mean I think they deserve it, just that it was easily foreseeable and they chose not to avoid it.

What good does protesting do anyway? Does it ever change minds anymore? It was effective in the ’60s, but the fact is, most of just sit back and laugh. Women’s March? Nothing but vile hilarity at the idea these people wanted to be taken seriously. Wearing costumes and hats will do nothing but garner ridicule from intelligent people.

The multitude of Antifa protests? Just children creating mayhem, hiding their faces so their upper-middle class or rich parents won’t see them and cut them off. Notice they never pull this crap somewhere like Texas? Because they know the ordinary citizens wouldn’t tolerate it, even if the liberal mayors of the major cities did.

The white supremacists? I know the radical left would love you to believe there are more of them than there are, but they are a tiny microcosm of the white population. Far smaller than say, the Islamic “extremists” that plague the Muslim culture, yet never fail to gain excuses from the radical left. Most of us have moved on from that way of thinking 30 years ago. It’s being drummed up for people to create chaos. It has been for years.

Black Lives Matter? Same. Sure, there are good folks in there, but when you associate with the likes of DRay etc, you lose credibility. They’re using you for their own purposes. Again, most of us no matter what our politics see you as a human being, not a black or white or anything else human being.

All of you, your protests don’t mean anything to any of us. We’re just trying to go to work, pay our bills, raise our families, and if you’re divorced and single like me, occasionally attempt to fine a decent woman. Pro tip ladies: guys like me, stable, with a good career and caring, aren’t interested in your radical views to change the country we love. If you’re protesting because you don’t like men, maybe they aren’t the problem, maybe YOU are.

So here’s my suggestion protesters: Find Jesus. Get a hobby. Get a job. Join a book club. Start building models. Take a chill pill prescribed by your physician, or shoot, smoke some weed. Chill. Out. Find some meaning in your lives other than being offended in perpetuity.

I think if you gained some perspective, you’d realize that, unless it’s the government encroaching on your business or freedoms, or taxing you into submission, you really don’t have anything to complain about. Most of the things you complain about that CAN be solved would be BETTER solved by you going out and working on them, not throwing a public hissy fit. For example, instead of protesting poverty why not volunteer for Habitat for Humanity or something? DO something. Don’t just whine about it.

As for protesting things like statues? Personally, I don’t care. But if walking by some metal or stone offends you, seriously, re-evaluate your life. You’re clearly not bothering with anything of value. Go do something of VALUE. At the moment you’re just useful idiots anyway.

Now that I’ve spoken to the 95%, I say to the 5% who actually understand the ins and outs of these protests: You’re cowards. You can’t get Socialism in this country at the ballot box so you want to take it by force. You keep stirring up anarchy for your nefarious purposes, and you’re going to lose. I’ve written previously as to why you’d fail here where you’ve succeeded elsewhere: the 2nd Amendment. You know that, which is why you’ve tried so hard for so many years to take it, but you’ve now realized we’re not giving it up without a LITERAL fight, and so you go ahead with your anarchy anyway. That’s not going to go as well for you as you think.

People have every right to peacefully assemble, but I have every right to make fun of you for it. We all do. And we will. The more you go protest when it’s over idiotic imagined slights, or for things you could be fixing yourself, the less interested we’ll be in your particular cause. All of you, stop being idiots.

PragerU: Does race really matter?

PragerU Does race really matter

Leftwing talk about race frightens Dennis Prager and it should frighten you as well. There is a dangerous precedent being set by the left that is creating division where it no longer exists. Unfortunately, it definitely did exist in the recent past, but modern America generally does not look at race as much of an indicator anymore EXCEPT when the left makes it an issue. This is ironic, of course, because in their quest to supposedly eliminate racism, the left tends to make race a bigger issue than it needs to be.

We hear about cultural appropriations, certain races whose lives apparently matter more than others, and the deconstruction of our nation’s history based upon cultural norms from the time that are no longer acceptable now. Yes, many of America’s first people were racist. Some even owned slaves. Even after slavery was abolished, we experienced racial divides that continued through the civil rights movement all the way into modern times. But today, those divides are no longer as prominent. A black President was elected with a strong number of non-black voters behind him. Congress is more racially and sexually diverse than ever in our country’s history. We have more CEOs of major corporations who aren’t just “old white guys” than ever.

We’re crowdfunded. We need your help. Please donate today.

America is making strong strides to effectively eliminate racial inequality, but the push to keep the divide as wide as possible isn’t coming from the general conservative side of the political aisle. Yes, there are white supremacists who claim a portion of the right-leaning mantle, but they are infinitesimal compared to the standard masses of conservatives who have seen beyond race. The real cultural and racial divides are being perpetuated by the left, and in particular by our leaders from the Democratic Party who cannot have a future if they do not play the race card incessantly.

This video by PragerU shows the stark difference between Dennis Prager and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). As she vies for votes by playing the race card, Mr. Prager calls out the real racism in America that’s coming from the left.

What are the spiritual beings in the Bible?

What are the spiritual beings in the Bible

Most people, even those who haven’t read the Bible, are likely familiar with it enough to know there are two primary groups being discussed: humans and God in his three forms, also known as the Trinity. Those who have read the Bible realize there are other groups of being as well. These are the “spiritual beings” of the Bible – angels, demons, and everything in between.

While I don’t always agree with everything taught by the folks at The Bible Project, most of their perspectives are excellent. More importantly, they’re able to break down the complex elements of the Bible and retell the stories in ways anyone can understand.

They’ve begun a new series focused on spiritual beings that I’m very hopeful will be enlightening and exegetically accurate. This is an important teaching to understand. While I’d recommend reading one of Michael Heiser’s books on the subject, those who aren’t ready for lengthy research should at least take a look at this or other teachings. It’s an important topic, one that gets much less attention than it deserves.

As we continue to work on our Principalities and Powers Podcast, it behooves us that more people are aware of the forces that we don’t necessarily see that are at work around us. This is why we’re hopeful about this new series from The Bible Project.

The Catholic-Mulsim fraternity deal is anti-Biblical

The Catholic-Mulsim fraternity deal is anti-Biblical

Before I get into the meat of this subject, it’s important to be perfectly clear about one thing. This is not an anti-Catholic perspective. I not only love my Catholic brothers and sisters who follow the Bible and embrace Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I’m actually related to a great deal of them. Yes, the majority of my large family on my mother’s side is Catholic. Spent the day with about a dozen of them yesterday.

With that stated, the leadership of the Catholic Church and the direction of the Vatican are so far off course, it’s odd that so few are actually calling them out for what is arguably the most anti-Biblical action they’ve ever officially taken. As bad as the action was, I’m more concerned that it’s not getting nearly the press it deserves.

I’m referring to the agreement signed by Pope Francis and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the head of Sunni Islam’s most prestigious seat of learning. In this agreement, the truth of the God of the Bible is intermingled with the falsehood of the god of the Quran, Allah. Moreover, the call for the unification of religions in a fraternity of secular peace is disturbing, not because we’re against peace but because the call to make peace is done with an understanding that or beliefs are supposed to be secondary to the collective good in this world. Lastly and most disturbingly, there’s a line in the document that is drawing some ire, though not nearly as much as Bible-believing Christians might expect:

“The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in his wisdom, through which he created human beings.”

The wording here is very careful. They’re trying not to say God willed other religions as a path to find Him, but when read in context with the rest of the document, that’s exactly what they’re trying to imply. They’ve put Islam on equal footing with the Judeo-Christian religions by insinuating God and Allah are the same entity.

They are not.

Defenses of the document seem to focus on two notions. First, in regards to the controversial line above, they’re saying that religious diversity is similar to sex, race, and other things that are willed by God because many are inherently predisposed to follow the religions of the culture surrounding them. Their second argument is that God wants his children to find Him, and if that path must go through Islam or Hindu or any other religion, so be it.

This is heretical teaching. One must do some pretty aggressive hermeneutical gymnastics to say that since God created everything, and other religions fall into the category of being included in “everything,” then God created the other religions. As a loving God, surely He didn’t limit which people could find Him and live eternal life, right?

The Bible cannot be more clear on one important fact: there is only one way to everlasting life: belief and worship of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. The document insinuates Islam is a path to salvation since, hey, they believe that Jesus was a very important prophet, so they’re not totally wrong. If it leads them to Christ through a non-traditional path, so be it.

This is a very dangerous road, one that harms the way the Catholic Church leads its people. It’s time for Bible-believing Catholics to speak out against the heretical teaching their leaders have embraced.
