Netherlands and Repressive Tolerance

     Herbert Marcuse, one of the thought leaders of Cultural Marxism, believed that tolerance required one to be intolerant of “repressive” ideas, speech, and intolerance, later expanded upon by Karl Popper. In short, it was believed that one should be intolerant of the intolerant and evil in order for tolerance of the good to be tolerated. This practically calls the question: Quis decernit?

     In the Netherlands in order to demand the tolerance of same sex marriage, ad ferendum are declared to be the few actual Christians who openly signed the Nashville Statement in support of traditional monogamous male/female marriages.

“Authorities in the Netherlands are reportedly investigating whether the 250 evangelical pastors who signed the Nashville Statement on biblical sexuality have violated the law after objections were raised by so-called “equality organizations.”

“The Nashville Statement, which was released in the U.S. in 2017 in response to the rising tide of secularism and the erosion of the Christian consensus on the issues of gender, marriage, and sexuality, affirms what the Christian church has accepted throughout its 2000+ years of existence — namely that marriage is between one man and one woman and that humans, made in the image of God, were created male or female with divinely ordained differences. Not intended to be a political treatise, the Nashville Statement was intended to be an instructive document for the church and Christian ministries.”

     Ironically enough, the loudest voices against the signers comes from the “Cosplay Christians” who make Unitarians look like snake-handlers talking in tongues.

The Latest in Transgender “Science”: Reincarnation

     An article in a recent peer-reviewed academic journal, International Journal of Sexual Health, ponders the question: Do past-life memories have a connection to transgenderism? Unsurprisingly, the study found just that.

In part, the study found that:

“The possibility that children’s past-life statements may be fantasies independent of any parental influence merits further attention as well. Can preexisting GNC lead a child to report past-life memories specifically as a member of a different sex, as if playing out gender nonconforming tendencies in fantasy? Several points argue against this possibility. First, although it is impossible to rule out that in some of these cases the child’s statements and behaviors may be rooted in fantasy, in more than half of our cases the idiosyncratic details of the past life have been found to match the life of an actual deceased individual. When limiting our analysis to such cases only, we find an equally strong association between GNC and memories of a life as a member of a different sex.”

     That’s right, past-life memories due to reincarnation is considered a legitimate field of academic study. The study authors don’t go so far as to right out say that this is a case of a soul in the wrong-sexed body, but the influence of “previous lives” is not a new area of study when it comes to shaping “personality development” in addition to (or perhaps in lieu of) genetics or environment.

Banning the Receipt in California

     The People’s Republic of California, which has already banned plastic grocery bags and waged war on drinking straws is now poised to go after… receipts.

     AB 161, as introduced into the California Legislature Grand Soviet, would require:

“[O]n and after January 1, 2022, a proof of purchase for the retail sale of food, alcohol, or other tangible personal property, or for the provision of services, provided to a consumer, as defined, by a business to be provided only in electronic form, unless the consumer requests that the proof of purchase be provided in paper form. The bill would specify that the first and 2nd violations of these provisions would result in a notice of violation and any subsequent violation would be an infraction punishable by a fine of $25 for each day the business is in violation, but not to exceed an annual total of $300. The provisions would be enforced by the same enforcement officers authorized to enforce the California Retail Food Code. By creating a new crime and imposing additional enforcement duties on local health agencies, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.”

Quick Takes – The Democrats’ Coming Assault on the Second Amendment

     Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.

     The focus this time: If the government can whittle down your rights, you don’t have rights.

     First, a little mood music:

     Carrying on…

     Demonstrating the importance of denying anti-gun leadership concomitantly in both houses of Congress and in the Presidency, Speaker “San Fran Nan” Pelosi and company have introduced HR8, which would “require a background check for every firearm sale“.

     In summary:

“HR8 requires that loans, gifts, and sales of firearms be processed by a gun store. The same fees, paperwork, and permanent record-keeping apply as to buying a new gun from the store. If you loan a gun to a friend without going to the gun store, the penalty is the same as for knowingly selling a gun to a convicted violent felon. Likewise, when the friend returns the gun, another trip to the gun store is necessary, upon pain of felony.

“A clever trick in HR8 effectively bans handguns for persons 18-to20.

“The bill has some narrow exemptions. The exemptions do not cover stalking victims. Also excluded are farming and ranching, sharing guns on almost all public and private lands, NS storing guns with friends while on vacation. The limited exemption for family excludes first cousins and in-laws. The minuscule exemption for self-defense excludes stalking victims.

“The bill authorizes unlimited fees to be imposed by regulation.”

Literal Human Sacrifice for Gaia

     The environmental movement has been less about science than it has been about an apocalyptic religious notion for half a century more or less.

     Nothing makes that clearer than a true believer sacrificing himself to his god Gaia as in imploration for others to engage in zealous insanity!

“I was not at all pleased by the way that the New York Times’s annual “The Lives they Lived”–obituaries for notables who passed away in 2018 — depicted the death of David Buckel, a radical environmentalist who killed himself by self-immolation to benefit the earth.”

Normalization of Prepubescent Drag as Grooming

     If pre-teen “drag-queen” “Desmond is Amazing” dancing for money at an adult gay bar is not enough to make you consider the possibility that this entire “pre-pubescent children being dressed up in drag” might be a sign of grooming, then the latest insanity involving another pre-teen “drag queen”, “Queen Lactacia”, posing in a favorable article at “Huck Magazine”, as well as pictures that were too controversial for even them to publish, should be enough to give you the creeps.

     And yes, that is the picture that Huck ran as their headlining photo, screencaptured below.

Can The Venezuelan Disaster Be Contained?

     And just how bad is this “disaster state“? Gasoline shortages despite having the largest proven reserve of oil of any nation, being billed for non-existent phone service, and women having to sell their hair, their breast milk, and even their bodies just to survive.

     As Venezuela continues to suffer, Maduro is set to be “reelected” to another term in his de facto Presidency for Life. And if things are so bad, where is the opposition? Being crushed, imprisoned, or if they are lucky, fleeing from Maduro’s clutches.
