In my life I have met three convicted pedophiles. Two were convicted for child porn and one for abusing a minor. The one that I knew best is my age and got off easy for reasons I will not divulge into here. Nevertheless, he will permanently be on the sex offender registry. I think about how the consequences of sexual crimes are sometimes inescapable. There’s a Black Mirror episode “White Christmas” starring John Hamm in which the conclusion shows a futuristic society where technology allows people to visually block each other causing the viewer to contemplate whether this punishment is too cruel especially as in the case of the episode where it was disproportionate to the offense.
I think about this, but I don’t really contemplate whether America goes too far in punishing sex offenders. Quite the opposite is true in my observation such as in the aforementioned case. But there are some offenses that necessitate this severity, but our society neglects to call it a crime. Transgendering your kids is something that should land a parent on a sex offender registry and is deserving of child protective services if not prison. This statement should not be controversial, yet it is a statement that can get you canceled on social media.
HBO’s documentary Transhood follows four minors over the course of years being inundated with this sexual ideology. This is not in San Francisco or even California. It’s filmed in Kansas City, and promotes transgendering children. There is this scene where this pagan church celebrates a reluctant boy being called a girl. In the clip (see above), the presumed parent passes the boy’s reluctance off as shyness which could be true in the same way Adrian was shy because of Paulie’s abuse in Rocky. But my observation was that he would not be on this path if it weren’t being pushed on him. And that is child abuse.
These parents should be registered. They should not be allowed to live near schools or work with children. You should be able to know where they live, so that you can act accordingly.
There aren’t many crimes more deserving of being a sex offender for life. And before we contemplate whether this stigma and consequence is too harsh, consider Luke 17:2.
It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin.
Luke 17:2 ESV
These parents are sex offenders and a millstone would be merciful compared to what God will do if they do not repent. So instead of trying to be nicer than God about people who abuse children, setting them on a path of sin and destruction, we should instead adopt a biblical mindset and act accordingly to protect children from those who would do them harm.
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
