IMF Plots to Plunder Your Assets — So you save all throughout your career only to have it confiscated to pay off debts or to redistribute to those who didn’t save.
No wonder liberals are so keen to take our guns away. We are coming up fast on the point where people start to say, If you want to confiscate any more of my property, you will have to step over my dead body to get to it. Forbes reports on what our rulers have in the works:
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) quietly dropped a bomb in its OctoberFiscal Monitor Report. Titled “Taxing Times,” the report paints a dire picture for advanced economies with high debts that fail to aggressively “mobilize domestic revenue.” It goes on to build a case for drastic measures and recommends a series of escalating income and consumption tax increases culminating in the direct confiscation of assets.
Got Same-Sex Attraction? Things Can Change — Don’t believe the “born that way” lie used to prop up the LGBTQX lobby and now the pedophilia / polygamy lobbies (see below).
Most of the world seems to believe that same-sex attraction can’t be changed. I believe this is a myth.
I attended the NARTH (National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality) annual convention in Phoenix a few weeks ago and learned a lot about the current state of research helping people with unwanted same-sex attraction (SSA). I’m not a therapist of any sort, but I go almost every year to keep abreast of the work being done in this field.
It turns out that not only is sexual orientation fluid, but many instances of change occurwithout any therapy or intervention. For example, a study from the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that 68% of 15 year-olds with same-sex attraction had opposite-sexattraction (OSA) by the age of 21.* Again, these changes occurred spontaneously.
It’s interesting to note that sexual identification appears to be most fluid during these teenage years, precisely when youth are most likely to be affirmed by the culture as “gay.” Yet what we find is that it’s more likely that they will naturally fall back to predominately OSA within a few years.
According to the authorities, homosexuality is no longer a behavior or a disease, much less a sin, but an identity. It is therefore protected from criticism, and rewarded with special privileges that accompany identity politics. Inevitably, the same attitude will be applied to other aberrant behavior, starting with a closely related form of perversion, pedophilia:
Pedophilia has been widely viewed as a psychological disorder triggered by early childhood trauma.
Now, many experts see it as a biologically rooted condition that does not change — like a sexual orientation — thanks largely to a decade of research by Dr. James Cantor at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health [in Toronto].
Cantor’s team has found that pedophiles share a number of physical characteristics, including differences in brain wiring. It’s now thought that about 1 to 5 per cent of men are pedophiles, meaning they are primarily attracted to children.
Nobody wants to ask, “What happens if anybody can be polygamous any time that they want to, and you have a full-on polygamous society?” Well, what happens in those societies typically—and I challenge anybody to show me a society that contradicts this—is that the rich men have more than their share of wives. They have multiple wives, and guys with modest means are kind of scrambling around, looking for somebody to marry.
And so the systemic pressure in those societies is, number one, to drive the men out of society—to find some place for young men to go. So in [polygamous] Mormon culture, you’ll find the teenage boys being “driven off the ranch” kind of a thing, and you’ll also find pressure for girls to get married younger and younger. That’s the way the gap is filled is through younger and younger marriages. And you’ll also find more possessiveness of women. You don’t find a lot of choices among women. Women become prized, and they’re prized by those who are wealthy enough to afford multiple wives. And it doesn’t end up being more free for women, it ends up being less free for women. And so, like I say, I challenge anybody to show me a society that is a serious counterexample to that—where you’ve got widespread, society-wide acceptance of polygamy where you don’t end up with those types of effects.
And so, we’re moving—on the basis of individual rights and individual freedom—we’re moving to a system that is going to be less equal and less free, and certainly less equality between men and women. So I think this is a dark day for anything that would have ever called itself feminism or freedom….
They’re not thinking it all the way to the end and asking, “What happens when you don’t have a marriage institution?” What happens to women? What happens to children? What happens to your idea of equality? What happens to your idea of personal liberty, personal freedom, when women become something that’s so valued that they have to be controlled because rich men want a lot of women? That’s the dynamic that is being set into motion here.
Troops Told Christians Are Terrorists — At Fort Hood — This perversely Orwellian story from 2013 shows how brazen the Left is when you don’t stop them early.
Fort Hood is best known as the base where self-described Soldier of Allah yelled “Allahu Akbar” and proceeded to murder 14 unarmed Americans in the name of Islam. Politicized Army brass responded by gibbering that the worst result of the massacre would be if it inhibited the pro-Muslim political correctness that left Nidal Malik Hasan in a position to commit this atrocity despite the numerous indications he had given that he was likely to engage in terrorism against this country. The government of the aggressively Islamophilic Barack Hussein Obama trivialized the incident as “workplace violence” and refused to grant Purple Hearts or appropriate combat death compensation, even while showering money on Hasan. Now Fort Hood has returned to the news, serving again as the front in the war against Western Civilization. Todd Starnes reports:
Soldiers attending a pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood say they were told that evangelical Christians and members of the Tea Party were a threat to the nation and that any soldier donating to those groups would be subjected to punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
9 Things You Should Know About Persecution of Christians in 2013 — Ask yourself why the media doesn’t cover this.
Christians are the single most widely persecuted religious group in the world today. As we pray for the persecuted church, here are nine things you should know about the plight of believers around the globe:
1. Christian churches around the world have set apart the month of November to remember and pray for the persecuted church, through the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP).
2. According to the U.S. Department of State, Christians in more than 60 countries face persecution from their governments or surrounding neighbors simply because of their belief in Christ.
Study: abortion more than doubles the risk of child abuse — and it increases the risk of breast cancer. Don’t expect the mainstream media or the Democrats to tell you about that.

Via Sola Sisters, Christianity vs. Roman Catholicism, side by side — Just compare and contrast. I know lots of Catholics who talk a lot like Protestants and are surprised to find what Rome teaches.
