Roundup

ROUNDUP TIME

Get This Prayer App — Seriously, prayer apps are extremely useful.  I don’t use that one, but it sounds really good.  I use one called Prayer Notebook.

The River Of God — Great analysis and message from a father to his children — and anyone else who will listen.

New York Times Editorial Calls for Moving Toward Normalization of Pedophilia — Of course!  Right on schedule.  In a few years they will be demanding that you approve of pedophiles the same way the insist that you approve of the rest of the LGBTQX alphabet soup of rebellion against God.

I enjoyed being able to do early voting here in Texas.  The only minor surprise was that the Democrats’ nominee for governor was listed as Wendy “Abortion Barbie” Davis.  Just kidding!  Probably!  It was fun to vote for Abbott.

5 Ways To Lose the Battle Against Sin — great reminders!

Transanity of the week: Dan Ennis Changes Sex Three Times, Gets Canned by ABC News — The first change was cheered, of course.  They were so proud of him!  But after three times it apparently got old.  Maybe they figured out what normal people knew all along: This is one confused husband and father of three.

Cosmologist Luke Barnes answers 11 objections to the fine-tuning argument

Decrypting Bitcoin — If you’ve wondered what Bitcoin is, this is a good overview.  No plans to invest in it, though!

9 Things You Should Know About Down Syndrome — Key thing: 2/3 of people with Down Syndrome are murdered because of it.  That should not be.

The Logical Consequence of Treating Your Base Like Garbage — Yep.  I’d never donate to the national Republicans.  They support too many RINOs and demonize conservatives.

Dutch euthanasia law a huge success — Of course they mean it is successful in terms of killing lots of people, just as designed.  This is creepy, evil and entirely predictable.

The good news is that the Netherlands is still capable of creating something other than Muslim extremists. The bad news is that what they are producing is the state sanctioned killing of the sick and elderly by medical professionals.

Pregnant Abortionist Feels Her Baby Kick As She Tears Off Leg in an Abortion — That’s what they do.

An Acts 8 Outlook — Great points, as always, by Stan.

So remember Acts 8. Stephen did the right thing and died for it. Doing the right thing spawned persecution. Persecution scattered the Christians. As a result of persecution, then, they “went everywhere preaching the word”, and “Philip went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed to them the Christ.” That’s a good thing. That is, confidence in a Sovereign God to take the evil intentions of rebels around you to use their evils for your good and His glory is a good thing. A really good thing.

Moses was ‘Barbaric, Schizophrenic,’ Says ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Actor Christian Bale — “Bale admitted that he was not knowledgeable about the Bible and had to do some significant research for the role.”  Indeed! This article is one more reason I avoid [allegedly] Bible-based movies.Why would you expect pagans to get anything right? It is in their job description to mock or distort the word of God!  Romans 1:18–20 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

CNN Makes a Mockery of the Worst Moment of Bristol Palin’s Life, She Responds — Nothing to see here, folks.  Just more Leftist media hypocrisy.

Bristol Palin was pushed to the ground. She was dragged across the grass. She was called a “slut.” She was robbed.

CNN’s Carol Costello thought that was hilarious.

In what was perhaps the worst moment of Bristol’s life, the media treated her as a laughingstock. Outlets couldn’t wait to report on the “Palin family brawl” or the “thrilla in Wasilla” that occurred at a party in Anchorage, Alaska, and turn it into a TMZ segment. Heck, it was probably even on the verge of becoming a Saturday Night Live skit. MSNBC’s Joy Reid referred to it as a “stunt” and said John McCain should apologize for putting Sarah Palin on the ballot in 2008. But, the worst “report” of all, had to be this insensitive segment from CNN’s Costello.

CNN obtained the audio from the unfortunate incident. In the clip, an exhausted and shaken Bristol describes how a stranger pushed her sister Willow, then assaulted her. To make matters worse, Bristol had her five-year-old son Tripp in the car and she was clearly concerned for his safety as well. It is this audio clip that Costella told her viewers to “sit back and enjoy:”

When the Ray Rice scandal broke and that terrifying video surfaced of the football player knocking his fiancé to the ground and dragging her out of an elevator, Costello slammed Fox News for supposedly making light of it. She also made sure to inform her viewers about the very real dangers of domestic assault. Here she is reading off a few statistics, for instance, that 1 in 4 women experience domestic violence and women 20 to 24-years-old are at greatest risk.

Fast forward a month later, Costello is openly mocking Bristol Palin for…being a victim of physical assault. You’d think she’d change her mind about making jokes about the encounter after listening to the troubling clip, but at the end, she merely says, “You can thank me later.”

What did Jesus think of the Old Testament? — A recent comment on an old post said this:

Isaac Asimov once said, “Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived.”

My response:

Thanks, that’s a great example of the foolishness of people who rebel against God. Deep down he knew that Christianity was the real, authentic religion. Otherwise, he’d never say something so stupid as that, pretending that if one religion was false then they all must be. As J. Budziszewski, atheist-turned-Christian philosophy professor from the University of Texas say, “Though it always comes as a surprise to intellectuals, there are some forms of stupidity that you must be highly intelligent and educated to commit. God keeps them in His arsenal to pull down mulish pride, and I discovered them all.”

But the Bible is truly the word of God and carries the good news of how to be reconciled to him — even rebels who currently agree with Asimov.

Romans 1:18–20 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

The media embargo on “the B word” — No, not that one.  They’ll gladly say that.  They won’t say black.  Apparently it is too racist to note the most obvious descriptor of a person.

Don’t miss this response to the silly and evil video with little girls swearing (I didn’t watch the evil one, but this one is dead on).

Great video on the 2nd Amendment.  Watch then save!

One thought on “Roundup”

  1. I can’t wait for them to start describing perps who are black on the evening news. “The police are looking for a charcoal colored man, along with his milk chocolate partner.”

    Don’t worry, the stupidity will prevail.
