Should you believe the Wintry Knight or Planned Parenthood on whether to have out-of-wedlock sex?

Go with WK, of course.  See How premarital sex damages a woman’s ability to be in a relationship.  Better yet, just see what the Bible has to say and then don’t be surprised when the logical consequences of fornication are destructive beyond measure.

Then again, via Planned Parenthood Tells Teens Nothing Wrong With Multiple Sex Partners:

Alex the “expert,” pronounced through Planned Parenthood’s Tumblr: “Since the number of sexual partners you’ve had doesn’t say anything about your character, your morals, or your personality – or about anything at all really– there’s nothing bad or unhealthy about having a big number of sexual partners.”

And you can totally trust Planned Parenthood.  I mean, just because they kill babies for a living, systematically hide rape, incest and sex trafficking, encourage kids to have all sorts of out-of-wedlock sex and pretend that it can be done without risks, would rather destroy a breast cancer charity than part ways amicably, commit Medicaid fraud, teach kids the joys of BDSM, and so much more, they are still worthy of receiving hundreds of millions of $ in taxpayer funds, right?

False teacher does last minute race-baiting before election

Radical pro-abortionist and false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way but He sure is a bigot” Currie of the UCC (Unitarians Counterfeiting Christ) took a break from taking little girls to gay pride parades to do some race-baiting: Remarks at The Oregon League Of Minority Voters Dinner

For all the gifts of our democracy, however, we are a nation not fully free. A broken system allowed the loser of the popular vote to take the presidency in 2001. Our political system has never fully recovered.

That’s not a broken system, it operated as designed.  He’s just a sore loser.  And it is common knowledge that the Leftist media calling the election early for Gore sent countless Republicans home.  The popular vote would have been different otherwise.  Chuck’s first lie was an old one, but designed to drive conflict and destroy peace.

Since then we have given corporations the rights of people and taken away from certain people the right to freely vote.

Another lie.  While the Left steals more and more elections with illegal aliens and other non-citizens voting, asking people to show ID is the most obvious solution ever.  His audience should have been insulted that he thinks they are too stupid to get an ID.

The United States keeps company with nations like Russia in incarcerating large numbers of our fellow citizens, and in America those jailings are disproportionally based on skin color and not on crime.

Yet another lie.  His native tongue!

We are not fully free in Missouri or New York or California or Oregon when unarmed African-Americans are killed by uniformed police officers and we know the process of investigation will be neither fair nor balanced.

The evidence shows that the intoxicated thug who just assaulted someone and stole from a convenience store was not shot as the Left claims.  More lies.  But Chuck & Co. don’t let that get in the way of the narrative.  Their theme is, “Stay on the plantation!”

“Ours is a disconnected reality. We live in an age where an African-American can be elected president of the United States. We live in an age where a Latino can serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. We live in an age where a lesbian woman can serve as the Speaker of the Oregon House of Representatives. All of these people serve based on the content of their character.”

No, that’s the irony.  They were affirmative action elections and appointments, not based on their character or accomplishments.

. . .Neither political party pays enough attention to poverty and economic inequity but the harshest judgment must rest with those who have fought investments in jobs, expansion in health care…and with those who have simply turned a blind eye to the people Jesus called the least of these.

No, the harshest judgment is for pro-abortion extremists like Currie who fight to increase the rate of abortions in the black community even higher than the current rate of 3-to-1 over whites.  Those are the “least of these” from the passage Currie blasphemously abuses.

The crisis of Ferguson is not an isolated incident but indicative of larger social ills that infect the whole body of our nation.

We agree on that.  The Leftists caused these ills by subsidizing fornication and out of wedlock births, which destroyed the black family (and now the white family) and swelled our prisons.

Only when we recognize the common humanity that we all share will we all be free.

How ironic for a radical pro-abortion extremists to appeal to our common humanity!

We cannot treat one another as if we can do without the other. . . .We are not fully free because we do not treat the “other” as necessary, as integral, when there is no one, not a soul, that can be left behind. If we do not love neighbor as ourselves, we have no hope.

Yeah, no one like this or this.

Race-baiting Leftists are a disgrace — even more so when posing as Christians.  Note how Currie wears his collar (seems odd for a UCC “pastor”).  Almost as if he is in a Halloween costume!

But here’s good news: More people leaving the plantation!  I’m encouraged to see more of these coming out all the time.  Currie et al must be scared that blacks are wising up to them.

Bart Campolo’s heretical journey

Forbes magazine had a leadership article on their online site and discussed how Bart Campolo, son of “red letter Christian” Tony Campolo, had left the church. Via Bart Campolo’s heretical and liberating leadership journey:

Once in a while, an apple falls from its tree … and then won’t stop rolling away of its own accord. Bart Campolo comes to mind.

For years, he was a spiritual leader who carried the distinction of being the son of evangelical pastor and social-justice champion Tony Campolo.

That’s one of the many problems of nepotism.  The guy wasn’t even a Christian but he had a leadership role!

Today, Bart is the humanist chaplain at the University of Southern California, a job he has held for a little over a month. [Disclosure: USC is my alma mater and primary employer.]

In one sense, he is the same person he has always been, fighting for the welfare of the sick and the poor. But he is now agnostic, in stark contrast to his legendary father.

In his new role, he will offer encouragement to many like-minded people seeking meaning and purpose; and he will outrage or scare the pants off millions of people with whom he no longer shares a religious identity.

Scared?  Who would be scared?  He was just another wolf who took the sheep’s clothing off.  And the outrage isn’t for him, but for the churches who made him so comfortable as a non-believer and made him a leader.

The younger Campolo’s journey reveals the process by which leaders discover who they are and what they’ll fight for; and the process by which they come, often painfully, to discover their unique, authentic voice.

“We’ve got chaplains on our campus representing 90 specific religious and spiritual traditions, but Bart’s our first humanist chaplain,” says Varun Soni, USC’s dean of Religious Life. “I think he’s a crucial addition, because I think there’s a hunger for an engaged and active secular humanist community. I think the future is going to be less about traditional doctrines and practices and more about people wrestling together with things like significance, identity and how to contribute to society. It’s a broader definition of religion, faith and spirituality.”

Oh, its humanist, all right!  Making gods in their own images.

Campolo’s own path would seem to suggest there is truth to Soni’s hunch. “When people ask me when I started to ‘lose faith,’” Bart tells me, “I usually say, ‘Within about 15 minutes of becoming a Christian.’”

Of course, we know from 1 John 2:19 that if he has left to be a humanist “chaplain” that he never was a Christian.  He was done a disservice by those in the church.  1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.

. . . And he would go on to create inner-city ministries around the nation designed to rescue suffering people from unemployment, addiction, sex slavery and other ills.

If those organizations helped people, that’s great.

Yet that faith, from its nascence, was tested on various fronts. Theodicy (the theological attempts to justify why God allows evil) would exhaust him when he would encounter actual victims of gang rape or other forms of cruelty. Gay roommates would challenge his notions of what it meant to love others unconditionally. A severe bike accident a few years ago brought him to a conviction that he wasn’t a soul in a body, but rather a finite, manipulable mass of cells and neurons that would one day be entirely gone.

Theodicy is an interesting topic, of course, but it always amusing that people like Campolo weren’t concerned about evil until they knew someone personally who suffered, as if the countless evil acts to date didn’t count.  And he’s yet another Leftist who sits in judgment of God’s creation of sexual morality.

And he isn’t a very clear thinker if he believes we aren’t souls as well as bodies.  If his worldview is true then he has no grounding for any moral claims.

All along, a sense of intellectual honesty would suggest to him that everyone of religious faith, himself included, played games with scriptures. “We’d underline the parts we like and ignore the parts we didn’t like,” Campolo says. “I underlined some verses about a loving, all-inclusive, God and ignored some other verses.”

I’m glad he admitted how Leftists ignore verses they don’t like!

. . .

Today, Bart Campolo is as animated by his social-justice values as ever. But he no longer sees a religious narrative as the source of those values. He relishes the explanations and speculations of empirical science about the origin and nature of things: “To me, science’s story is even more amazing than any religion’s creation story,” he tells me.

That begs the question.  The real God is sovereign over science as well.  It is all his story.

“And Neil deGrasse Tyson is as inspiring as any preacher I’ve heard.”

Tyson’s speaking (and penchant for making up quotes) is meaningless as to the truth of his worldview.

. . .

What meaning does he draw from that scientific narrative? “The universe is wonderful,” he says. “And life is to be cherished.”

Yes, because God wrote that on our hearts.  But his godless worldview can’t ground that.

He sees in that narrative real evidence that nature selects, in a Darwinian sense, for the values that he holds—indeed, that the mystical concept of “love” itself is rigged into the system, selecting for altruism, community, self-sacrifice, gratitude, compassion and forgiveness.

No, Darwinian evolution would support survival of the fittest, sex trafficking, slavery, etc.

. . .

Campolo notes that many longtime, active members of churches confide to him that they share his skepticism—maybe even his outright unbelief. But they often stay there, silently assenting to what they don’t believe, because they need the identity, the support and the belonging that comes from their existing community.

In the famous parable of the weeds in Matthew’s gospel, Jesus warns that the good wheat in a farmer’s field might have among it bad weeds that were sown by an “enemy.” It was a caution about the presence of “false” members within the church. It also reflects the dilemma of many so-called weeds, who may stay in the church while muffling their own convictions and dissensions.

In that sense, Bart Campolo may be helping lead the planting of a new, humanistic church where the weeds can finally grow free, without apology.

That’s an excellent point, albeit a bit ironic. You just need to take the quotes off of enemy and weeds, and keep reading to find out what happens to the weeds for eternity. For in Campolo’s made-up religion, we’re just masses of cells with no ultimate accountability to a creator. There will be no justice for any evil — ours or those that commit it against us. That view is not only false but pathetic. What kind of community gathers to celebrate that?

 

Supply and demand ===> lower energy prices

This is one of the feel-good stories of the decade.  Increasing domestic energy production by over 50% the last few years has saved hundreds of billions on energy costs, provided countless jobs and increased tax revenues, increased our independence as a country and stuck it to our enemies.  Enjoy the benefits of supply and demand!  Via The True Reason Gas Prices are Falling (Hint: It’s Not Because of Green Energy).

At present levels, these lower oil and gas prices are the equivalent of a $200 billion cost saving to American consumers and businesses. That’s $200 billion a year we don’t have to send to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other foreign nations. Now that’s an economic stimulus par excellence.

There are many global reasons why gas prices are falling, but the major one isn’t being widely reported. America has become in the last several years an energy-producing powerhouse.  And sorry, Mr. President, I’m not talking about the niche “green energy” sources you are so weirdly fixated with.

Oil prices are falling because of changes in world supply and world demand. Demand has slowed because Europe is an economic wreck. But since 2008 the U.S. has increased our domestic supply by a gigantic 50 percent. This is a result of the astounding shale oil and gas revolution made possible by made-in-America technologies like hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling.  Already thanks to these inventions, the U.S. has become the number one producer of natural gas. But oil production in states like Oklahoma, Texas and North Dakota has doubled in just six years.

Without this energy blitz, the U.S. economy would barely have recovered from the recession of 2008-09. From the beginning of 2008 through the end of 2013 the oil and gas extraction industry created more than 100,000 jobs while the overall job market shrank by 970,000.

When the radical greens carry around signs saying “No to Fracking,” they couldn’t be promoting a more anti-America message. It would be like Nebraska not growing corn.

We are just skimming the surface of our super-abundant oil and gas resources.  New fields have been discovered in Texas and North Dakota that could contain hundreds of years of shale oil and gas supplies.

Here’s another reason to love the oil and gas bonanza in America. It’s breaking the back of OPEC.  Saudi Arabia is deluging the world with oil right now, which is driving the world price relentlessly lower. The Arabs understand–as too few in Washington do–that shale energy boom is no short term fad. It could make energy cheaper for decades to come.  As American drillers get better at perfecting the technologies of cracking through shale rock to get to the near infinite treasure chest supplies of energy locked inside, we will soon overtake Saudi Arabia as the dominant player in world energy markets.
