Is mainstream media too cozy towards pedophilia?

Is mainstream media too cozy towards pedophilia

There have been a number of disturbing stories making the news that prompts the question: is pedophilia becoming more acceptable among prominent leftwing media sources? The inspiration for this question comes from an article published by NBC News. The article details online vigilante groups that hunt child predators and shame them on social media while trying to get the word out in their local towns.

He lures alleged child predators and shames them on Facebook. Now one of his targets is dead.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/he-lures-alleged-child-predators-shames-them-facebook-now-one-n953856Malcolm was tall and handsome. The oldest son of Jamaican immigrants, he wholly subscribed to the idea of the American dream. In high school, Malcolm was vice president of the Future Business Leaders of America club, assistant captain of the tennis and swim teams and a member of the student council and Model United Nations. He started a social marketing business at 15.

After graduating in 2016, Malcolm filled his Instagram and Facebook feeds with photos of New York high-rises, bathroom selfies in three-piece suits and links to news articles in which he was featured. He went to community college while working as a junior buyer for a local circuit-board manufacturer and was the subject of a Connecticut Public Television series that profiled recent high school graduates. Earlier this year, he was named one of Litchfield County’s 40 Leaders Under 40.

Malcolm was also gay, which was difficult growing up in a religious family in Torrington, a sleepy former mill town in the northwest part of the state, friends said.

“It’s not easy to be black, Jamaican, a Jehovah’s Witness and gay in Torrington, Connecticut,” said Allie Morrissey, a friend of Malcolm’s.

The tone in the beginning of the article made it seem like the pedophile who killed himself, Malcolm, a successful young gay man, accidentally found himself the victim of a predator sting operation. Unable to cope with people finding out, he killed himself. The only references to Malcolm being a pedophile come from quoted sources from the group POPSquad (Prey on Predators).

The article also points out other potential pedophile allies, Facebook. NBC reported that multiple pedophile hunting groups were being targeted by Facebook’s censorship, under the guise of cyberbullying.

After an inquiry from NBC News, Facebook temporarily suspended several predator hunter accounts, removed some individual posts and deleted at least one group entirely. Some groups voluntarily removed their own pages to escape what they saw as a purge. POPSquad appeared to be unaffected.

Anthony Greene of Truckers Against Predators was among the users disciplined by Facebook. In a Facebook Live video, Greene told his followers he was locked out of his account, in “Facebook jail” for the next 30 days.

This article was published weeks after the media celebrated the sexualization of a child transvestite dancing in a gay bar for dollar bills, including CNBC who the Daily Wire specifically pointed out. In no way is it appropriate for a kid to be performing in a bar like that for dollar bills. That is indulging pedophilia. Yet this event was widely celebrated among the leftwing media.

Despite the media’s apparent implied tolerance for pedophilia, there remains one staunch exception: the Catholic Church. The media, consistently uses the rampant sexual abuse to undermine the Catholic Church, which it does as the Pope ignores Biblical mandates on addressing such perversions. But without delving into further digression, this probably has to do with their disdain towards Christianity. But the media doesn’t, to the same degree, emphasize the pedophilia of the entertainment industry. Let’s not forget the famous video of the standing ovation for Roman Polanski.

The NBC article implies that Malcolm himself was a willing and curious participant seeking older men when he was high school aged.

Starting in high school, Malcolm used apps like Tinder and Grindr to meet men from around the state, friends said. On that October night, he had come to Bristol to meet someone younger, purportedly a 14-year-old boy “going on 15,” according to a video posted by the digital vigilante group known as POPSquad.

This guy was clearly fluent in the online dating game from any age. This was likely another routine hookup for him. The rise of these vigilante groups demonstrates the pervasiveness of pedophilia in today’s age. POPSquad being based in Connecticut, and there 126 stings, as of Malcolm, is just a drop in the bucket in a larger underground sexual phenomenon.

It’s quite possible that the mainstream media is soft on pedophilia because because they themselves are littered with pedophiles. But then another commonality between the two articles posted (NBCNews and Daily Wire) show that pedophilia and homosexuality may be more closely tied together than we may even realize or willing to admit as a society, unless you believe a ten year old girl performing in a regular night club would be as acceptable to NBCNews (it wouldn’t).

It would be inconvenient for the connection to be brought in the light when the media has been glamorizing it, creating and expanding the acronym of sexual behaviors which may one day officially include pedophilia. Furthermore it undermines the efforts of those within the community who would rather exclude pedophilia among their ranks. Instead the mainstream media celebrates this instance of blatant pedophilia. The media doesn’t support sexualizing children unless it’s underaged boys dressing as girls.

The existence of this exception makes it clear that the media is not interested in protecting children, rather it is interested in pushing an agenda. Perhaps this explains the soft stance on pedophilia and the effort to drum up controversy toward vigilante groups like POPSquad.

What Steven Crowder’s latest pro-life Change My Mind reveals

What Steven Crowders latest pro-life Change My Mind reveals

Steven Crowder in his most recent edition of “Change My Mind” experienced more aggressive pro-abortion arguments than he had in the previous installments. The episode featured people arguing that moral personhood began at birth or even “experience.” Often times, Change My Mind demonstrates that under scrutiny, arguments have flaws. Such is the method that got Socrates killed. With all of these discussions, the failure to prove the lack of humanity for a fetus proved unconvincing and logically undefended by its proponents. But I want to address the intrinsic instinct, the universal morality, that could not stay buried under layers of denial. These pro-abortion advocates, deep down, know they are wrong.

In all four conversations, late term abortion was supported. However the caveat of threat to the mother was brought up, despite the rarity of such occurrence. Steven Crowder called them out, citing the fact that they said they would support third trimester abortion even if it were not a threat to the mother by their own previous admission. The proponents then hesitantly agreed. So Crowder then asked “why bring it up?” That is the question. Why would abortion advocates rely on such extreme examples?

I believe that deep down, those who have not finished their leftist training have not intrinsically forsaken the convicting power of conscious, because of what I observed in this video. The latter two proponents came off as not even believing what they were saying. The first was a hardcore stoner. The second was a perhaps shy of being a feminist. The stoner gentleman said “breath” was the transfer of moral personhood and if a baby came out and had yet to breath, it would not yet be human, therefore justified in killing it. The last one suggested the ultra vague notion of “experience” rendered moral personhood. Yet she agreed that the experiences of the unborn were valid human experiences and then whimsically concluded that it was still okay to kill them.

She, in particular, sounded really unconvinced in her own stance. I thought she was going to make a utilitarian argument that would have led to an interesting discussion about quantifying human suffering. This would have been a better argument than “experience” which is even less defensible than sentience. The gentleman in the beginning argued that a fetus was a parasite but then insisted it was not autonomous. Biologically speaking a parasite is autonomous from its host.

These two claims are mutually exclusive. Three of these students presented arguments that I was unconvinced they themselves even believed. I am shocked that this was my takeaway, for on every other Change My Mind, even the other three installments on abortion, I believed that the guests genuinely believed their own arguments.

If a fetus is not human, there would be no need to rely on extreme examples to defend abortion. It’s becoming increasingly obvious that abortion is an affront to natural law, as science increasingly supports the notion of human life at creation. The Founding Fathers so cleverly wrote that our rights were self evident. The affront to these self evident rights will naturally be difficult to defend logically. This is why the abortion advocates had such poor arguments with premises that could not withstand charitable scrutiny. In this case, the pro-abortion advocates all believed a conclusion of abortion permissibility, without internally accepting the premises necessary to support the conclusion and the implications they would ensue from said premises.

There is a difference between a person being reputably evil and plainly gullible. That difference would be seen as someone who simply accept that a fetus is not human and simply doesn’t care. These college students weren’t there yet. Nor is the rest of the country as a whole. So there is reason for hope.

Intellectual discourse versus Biblical snippets to spread the Gospel

Intellectual discourse versus Biblical snippets to spread the Gospel

In a world with a shortening attention span, is it better to drop “Bible bombs” on people in the short time they give us? With a topic as complex as a Biblical worldview, is it better to deliver long-form dissertations and engage in extended debate?

The answer to both questions is, “Yes.”

Those of us who are trying to spread the Gospel and bring more people to the light are tasked with a difficult challenge to overcome. Much of the world is shifting towards a secular worldview and abandoning the truth of the Bible. Even though people abroad are coming into the faith in astounding numbers, people in western culture are often pulling away.

We are faced with the two big challenges: time and effort. Sometimes, people simply won’t allow enough time to learn about the Bible, our Creator, our Savior, or any of the other portions of faith that are required to penetrate the evil haze that is sweeping across western culture. On the other hand, there is a need to be prepared for those instances when someone is open to discussion, when they have questions and are willing to look deeper to find the answers.

The former often requires us to be ready with a Biblical “elevator pitch” in order to establish the latter. This is one of the reasons why we’re so focused on social media. It’s a venue that we believe can bring people into the state of mind of asking questions. While it’s likely not possible for a Tweet to make people change their worldview, we see it as a prompt to act on the nagging feelings that have been hitting them but that they’ve never pursued in the past.

Once you have people asking questions, it’s important to have the right answers readily available. If they come to you for guidance and you’re not ready to deliver it, you can actually do more harm than good. It’s a fear that has enveloped us at times. It has driven us to a state of constant study; not a day goes by when we’re not doing something to expand our understanding and sharpen our abilities to deliver the right message at the right time.

Prayer is the most important thing you can do. It’s even more important than studying. If you can tap into the message through prayer and Bible study, the Lord will provide you with the words you need when the time to deliver them comes.

One does not have to go to seminary to be able to answer questions when they are asked. Between the internet and, of course, the Bible, the answers will present themselves if you’re are simply willing to look.

Lila Rose reveals the heinous statistics about Down Syndrome abortions

Yesterday was World Down Syndrome Day, and while many celebrated the wonderful successes and challenges overcome by those with Down Syndrome as well as their families, many in the pro-life movement highlighted a disturbing trend. With our ability to identify Down Syndrome from the womb, aborting babies with the condition has become so commonplace, the Down Syndrome population is non-existent in some countries.

Live Action founder Lila Rose took to Twitter to share some of these depressing statistics, including the horrible increased frequency in which it now happens in the United States. Anyone who knows someone with Down Syndrome must acknowledge their value and the fact that their lives should not be snuffed out because the scientific community says it’s a good thing.

Every life is a gift. Every single one of them. The “humane” murder of preborn babies because of their condition is one of the most mystifying stances of the “progressive” left.
