Two important posts from Kevin at Hillbuzz

I’m glad that Kevin DuJan is healthy again and actively blogging at Hillbuzz.  He’s a gay man who self-identifies as a Christian, so it is safe to say that we disagree on a couple things.  But I enjoy his candor and commentary on many issues.  He knows firsthand how vicious the Left can be to anyone who doesn’t follow the company line on all things Liberal, and he has some profound insights into the LGBTQ and pro-abortion subculture.

Here are two recent posts that I highly recommend.

First, see Advice on how to deal with gay family member who’s been brainwashed by the Left, if nothing else for his refreshing thoughts on “gay marriage.”

What’s happening here is classic Leftism…where the Left wants everyone to be victims and martyrs, because that makes them easier to control.  The Left has a clear and vested interest in making gays hate their families, because that means the gays won’t ever want to vote the way their families voted…and this helps guarantee more votes to the Democrat Party.

You see how the Left keeps the black community disfunctional, impoverished, and dependent on entitlement programs so that black entrepreneurs never emerge and blacks never achieve middle class status (where they would start wanting to vote in their own economic best interests, and not for Democrats who have kept black people in ghettos for decades).

The same thing happens with gays:  as long as the Left can convince young gay guys who’ve just come out that the people they grew up with all hate them for being gay, then Democrats can keep checking off the gay vote every election, using certain wedge issues to keep hate flowing at conservatives and Christians.

It is a well-orchestrated and heavily implemented scheme that’s run unchallenged for decades.

When a young gay guy like your brother starts reading The Advocate or Genre or Out magazine, in his exploration of his sexuality, he starts being brainwashed by the Left without realizing it.  The next step is for him to start picking up the Left’s anti-family, anti-Christian talking points, as broadcast by Anderson Cooper, Rachel Maddow, Rosie McDonalds, Sandra Bernhardt, Margaret Cho, Bill Maher, and other mouthpieces the Left uses to make hatred of conservatives and Republicans “cool”.

Being young and gay is partly about the search for acceptance. It’s about feeling different and seeking someplace where that difference is encouraged and not stifled.

The down side of all of this is that young gay guys like your brother fall under the influence of the Left, which fills their heads with the idea that life is just about rocking that hot little gym bod in as little clothing as possible as much as possible, reveling in the nonstop party that’s life in a place like Boystown, and shouting a giant F*** YOU! to everyone back home in Mineral City or Eureka Springs or wherever the guy was from.

It’s horrible, really, this brainwashing.

And the damage it all does is VERY difficult to undo.

Especially in terms of the key wedge issue the Left has used to divide gays from their families — and that’s the term “gay marriage” that the Left makes a line in the sand…which is often evolved into an insurmountable barrier between people who love one another.

I have said this many times before, and I will keep saying it:  if gays really wanted full equal rights, they would have sense enough to stop using the religious term marriage and start talking about spousal rights.  Better yet, show some of their trademarked creativity and invent A WHOLE NEW WORD for the spousal relationship between two guys and the similar arrangement between two women.  DO NOT TAKE A RELIGIOUS WORD and adulterate its meaning.  If there is no “gay baptism”, no “gay communion”, and no “gay confirmation”, there should be no “gay marriage”.

Case Studies of “The Tolerant Left”: NYC Democrat women who hate pregnant women

Here’s a case study of “The Tolerant Left” at work…in this instance, self-proclaimed “liberal” (read: Leftist) women in New York City who voted for Obama, have always called themselves Democrats, and who hate a woman in their office who’s gotten pregnant, is getting married, and is happily starting a family.

My friend Delphine works in a non-teaching position at a major institution of higher learning in New York City, in an office that is almost exclusively female, Obama-voting, and Leftist. The Big Boss of the office is a ridiculously wealthy Manhattan socialite who enjoys the prestige of her position (hobnobbing with the Mayor quite often, frequently being interviewed for her opinions on matters related to academia, having lunch with celebrity alumni, etc.) and the many millions of dollars her former husband left her, before the divorce.  This woman recently came out as a lesbian, and this liberation has turned to militancy on some levels, in that she clearly grinds an axe against women in the office with family responsibilities (since, not having those of her own, she seems to believe people under her on the organizational chart need to be at her disposal 24/7/365, husbands and babies be damned). She is what has been termed an evangelical or fundamentalist lesbian, who braids politics and autocracy into sexuality. Of, course, Big Boss is a big Obama supporter who makes many disparaging remarks during official staff meetings about Governor Sarah Palin, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, columnist Ann Coulter, and other conservative women.

The hatred exuded by Big Boss is real and palpable…she is a very angry woman who takes her emotions out on those unfortunate enough to work for her. She is the tyrant of her ivory towered fiefdom.

Just below her on the org chart is Little Boss, who is unmarried, childless, and upset in her 50s that marriage and children never happened for her (though she’s never stopped to wonder if it was her bad attitude and poor treatment of others that caused any of this). She, too, is a big Obama supporter and also never misses an opportunity to viciously malign Governor Palin or Congresswoman Bachmann in particular, often calling them both the “c-word” right there in the office, in front of the whole staff, as if it was the most natural and professional thing in the world to do.

. . .

Delphine just turned 30 last month, and is expecting her first child.  The baby was a total and complete surprise blessing, and she and the father have decided to get married this fall, before the baby comes.  Delphine is the most practical and efficient woman I’ve ever known and is not the center-of-attention type.  Meaning, just because she’s pregnant doesn’t mean Delphine has morphed into a “Hey! Come look at my sonagram! Come help me pick out baby names!” sort of person, because that’s just not her. Never has been, never will  be.

Clearly, she told the office she is pregnant.  She told everyone she is getting married. She’s had to adjust her habits a little because of the baby, but has not missed a single beat at work and has not drawn any sort of distracting attention to herself because she is pregnant.  She is the model employee, in fact, and she’s damn good at what she does for this university. They are most lucky to have her in their employ.

Well, Big Boss and Little Boss have been harassing her since she told them she was pregnant.  They don’t mind her getting married so much, even though Big Boss told her that her fiance is “ugly”, direct quote, but it’s the baby these two have an obsessive problem with.

Big Boss started things off by sneering at Delphine not long after she learned Delphine was pregnant, which Delphine thought was just her imagination for a while.  Big Boss is very angry at the world in general and often believes she was snubbed by Mayor Bloomberg or Governor Cuomo or someone, possibly Elmo, so Delphine didn’t realize her pregnancy so offended Big Boss until she had her performance review…and in the middle of it Big Boss started several sentences with “That damn baby better not…” and ended them with “or else your job is in jeopardy!”.

. . .

The problem is that not everyone is as comfortable standing up to bullies on the Left as Delphine.  And not everyone knows how to handle this garbage in the workplace.

Because the media protects the Left at every turn, it’s also rare to see stories like this told in print.

I wonder what would happen to the Left and people like Big Boss and Little Boss if “Case Studies of the Tolerant Left” became things regularly published online, from people who deal with this garbage in the trenches and have no other outlets to voice their exasperation.

There is no “Tolerant Left”.

There’s only the Left, in all its dictatorial we-know-best-do-as-we-say INTOLERANCE.

A big part of the problem

Listen to the President talk about why he would raise capital gains tax rates even though cuts by Clinton and Bush both increased revenues.

Amazingly enough, the liberal commentator Charles Gibson knows and tells the truth about what happens when the capital gains tax rate is reduced:

History shows that when you drop the capital gains tax the revenues go up.

But note how Obama ignores the facts and says he wants “fairness,” as if having a higher rate for those evil rich people will make things more “fair,” even though there will be less tax revenues to fund his liberal projects.

As I said in Jobs!!! Part one, here’s a huge part of the problem: Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?  Self-identified liberals and Democrats do badly on questions of basic economics.  The video is just more evidence of that, not to mention the failure of putting Utopian ideals above financial facts.

And you wonder why unemployment is so high?  It is just like when ideology and feel good finger-pointing unnecessarily cost tens of thousands of jobs with the offshore drilling moratorium.

Even the NY Times — that radical Right newspaper — reports no link between disasters and “global warming.”

Hillbuzz on Liberal Myths About Taxes – read the link – lots of nice graphs. 

MYTH: The Bush tax cuts caused the deficit.

FACT: In 2002, tax revenues were $1.85 trillion. In 2007, revenues were $2.57 trillion — a 39 percent INCREASE.

MYTH: The rich don’t pay taxes.

FACT: The top 1% of income earners pay 40% of all federal income taxes. The top 5% pay 60%. Everyone in the $200,000 plus tax bracket pays MORE than one fourth of their adjusted gross income in federal taxes. They almost certainly also coughed up a great deal in state and local taxes as well.

MYTH: People who object to the Obama-Pelosi-Reid agendas are right-wing extremists.

FACT: People who agree with Obama, Pelosi and Reid are left-wing extremists.

Planned Parenthood spent $638k to fight Alaska’s parental notice initiative – wow!  They really, really don’t like the idea of parents being informed that they grandchildren are going to be destroyed and that their children are going to undergo a surgery that has serious medical and emotional risks.  But you still need to jump through many hoops so your kids can take an Advil at school.  Aren’t you glad that Planned Parenthood gets hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding? 

Outsourced Call Centers Return, To U.S. Homes – What?!  You mean if wages inevitably rise in other countries when jobs shift there, and if you offer better quality locally, that businesses might reconsider where to source their labor?  The “Invisible Hand” works, again.  I heart capitalism.  Hat tip: Total Transformation (he’s back!)

False teachers like Jim "the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution" Wallis and Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie support the NYC Mosque and demonize those who dare criticize it, so they should be going ballistic over this:  Obama’s Hometown, Vastly Democratic Chicago, Denies Permit To Mosque : Stop The ACLU.  Why do the conservative, bigoted hate-mongers in Chicago oppose the freedom of religion of these Muslims?  Remember, the situation in New York is merely the right of citizens to exercise free speech in criticizing the Mosque location.  In Chicago, it is the government denying the freedom of the Muslims. 

More importantly, why don’t wolves in sheep’s clothing like Jim Wallis and Chuck Currie stand up for the Muslims in the racist and conservative city of Chicago?  Hey, isn’t that where the President is from?  The answer, obviously, is that they are hypocritical fakes.

Remember, the situation in New York is merely the right of citizens to exercise free speech in criticizing the Mosque location.  In Chicago, it is the government denying the freedom of the Muslims.

Hillbuzz on Ann Coulter: Priceless.  We live in strange times.  Here are some tidbits.

Now, for just a moment, appreciate the Bizarroworld we currently live in:

(1) We are gay guys in Boystown who, until 2008, detested Ann Coulter

(2) We are now reading Ann Coulter

(3) We agree with every damn word Ann Coulter says

(4) Sometimes, we think we’ve actually moved to the right of Ann Coulter

We’re still the same guys we always were, except that our eyes opened to the lies the DNC always sold us about Republicans and conservatives in general.

If the DNC has permanently alienated guys like us — who never in their lives thought they’d be reading and agreeing with Ann Coulter — then the Democrat Party is as good as Whig already.

The current Socialist-Democrat party has no moderates.  It is 100% lefty, baby.  And its PC-policies towards Muslims — those misunderstood murdering Care Bears — are going to get an awful lot of people killed, once the Religion of Peace stops sending its B-team to blow things up and dispatches operatives who know how to work clocks and who can successfully light their underoos and diapers on fire.

We now love Coulter so much, she just might make us straight.

David fired up his blog again — great stuff, especially for someone who just finished his first year of college!

I used to think that a triple-X domain for p*rn would help with that awful problem provided that it got it off the .com domain, as it would make it easier to filter bad sites.  But the efforts to make that happen go the wrong direction.  Too bad our gutless, paid-off politicians of both parties do nothing to enforce existing laws (kinda like the border situation).

Half of abortions done to foster care girls are by a judge’s order — Truly twisted.  Abortion is the opposite of justice.

Obama [Administration] Removed Faisal Shahzad From Terror Surveillance List Before Attack

Sources tell CBS News that would-be Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad appeared on a Department of Homeland Security travel lookout list – Traveler Enforcement Compliance System (TECS) –between 1999 and 2008 because he brought approximately $80,000 cash or cash instruments into the United States.

The person who killed 14 people at Ft Hood last fall was one such suspect whose JTTF investigation was suspiciously shut down around this time last year.

Our luck may run out soon . . .

Iran Gains Seat on UN Commission on the Status of Women. Obama Administration Silent — Fox, meet henhouse.  Why no complaints from the major feminist groups?  Is this another one of those Clinton-style things where as long as someone is pro-abortion the “feminists” will never criticize him?

At least 32 African-American Republicans running for Congress this year — Oops, someone forgot to tell them we’re racists.  Seriously, I hope the scales start tipping and more blacks realize that the Democrats have done nothing but hold them down for many decades.  Liberals are all for the “choices” that result in black abortion rates being three times as high as whites, but opposed to school choice that would help more blacks succeed.  That’s just one example of many.   Need more?  Go visit Detroit, the petri dish of Liberal politics, education and unions.

Excellent points by Pastor Timothy on Franklin Graham’s dis-invitation to the Pentagon.  I’m with Timothy on the National Day of Prayer (“meh”) but isn’t it sort of a “duh” statement for a Christian minister to think Islam is false?  If he thought Islam was true, wouldn’t he become a Muslim?  Are the Imams required to say Christianity is true?

Jesus and losers — excellent parenting advice

I enjoyed this analysis of John MacArthur’s preaching.  I listen to his Podcast almost every day and learn a lot.  I go to a Methodist church but appreciate Reformed preaching as well — I suppose I’m just one of those wacky open-minded religious liberals!

Why do so many people listen to MacArthur, this product of all the wrong schools? How can he pack out a church on Sunday morning in an age in which church attendance has seriously lagged? Here is a preacher who has nothing in the way of a winning personality, good looks, or charm. Here is a preacher who offers us nothing in the way of sophisticated homiletical packaging. No one would suggest that he is a master of the art of oratory. What he seems to have is a witness to true authority. He recognizes in Scripture the Word of God, and when he preaches, it is Scripture that one hears. It is not that the words of John MacArthur are so interesting as it is that the Word of God is of surpassing interest. That is why one listens.

Shocking: Madonna is a sex-selling hypocrite who doesn’t want her daughter to act like she does.

Black conservative Tea Partiers — turns out that they do exist, even though they get savaged with all kinds of pathetic personal attacks for their independent thinking.

AP Notices Black TEA Partiers Called Racist Names, But, It’s Not Racism, Cause They’re Conservatives – That’s the MSM way: Unsubstantiated claims of racism by Tea Partiers = real racism.  Substantiated claims of racism by Liberals = not racism.

Threats of violence by the loving, kind folks at Greenpeace (HT: Red State)

If you’re one of those who have spent their lives undermining progressive climate legislation, bankrolling junk science, fueling spurious debates around false solutions, and cattle-prodding democratically-elected governments into submission, then hear this:

We know who you are. We know where you live. We know where you work.

Think you’ll be hearing about these threats of violence on the MSM?

Non-Christian quotes about abortion — nice summary by Reason to Stand.  Be sure to check out that blog, it is excellent!  I especially liked this quote.  Even the world’s bloodiest religion is better grounded on abortion than the Left:

You shall not kill your awlad [born or unborn children] due to fear of poverty. We provide for them, as well as for you. Killing them is a gross offence. Quran 17:31

Dear Liberal friends,

How often did you see this clip of President Obama tripping?  How many times would you have seen it if it had been President Bush?

We now conclude this reminder that the MSM is hopelessly biased.

Love,

Conservative friends

Mormon update: Still nice neighbors and friends.  Still not Christians.  Same vocabulary, different dictionary.  Many Mormons still as un-/mis-educated about their faith as many Christians are about theirs.  Seriously, watch the whole thing if you have doubts.

One of my favorite blogs . . .

 . . . is Hillbuzz, written by a bunch of gay guys in Chicago.  You might be thinking my blog has been hijacked, but never fear.   Do I disagree with them on some matters about human sexuality and God?  Well, duh.  But we have a lot in common and it is good to read different perspectives, and these guys have a lot of important things to say.  And they are funny and much more charitable to Christianity than you’d expect.  I’d trust them way more than theological Liberals whose religion is just Lefty politics in disguise.

Oh, and they are being viciously attacked and threatened by extremists on the Left because they dare to criticize President Obama.  Please pray for their safety, as I do.

Consider this post and a few excerpts below.  Very insightful.

Question: Who will be left to help Haiti once all the Liberals get back to thinking about Oscar season?  

We’re just going to answer this question right now:  Christians.

Christians will be in Haiti helping rebuild that country, working in deplorable conditions, and, frankly, giving every last bit of themselves to rebuild Port-au-Prince and relieve as much suffering as possible.

George Clooney will take his beard back to Italy, or wherever he goes with it (or her, depending on how you want to define that), on his private jet, probably snacking on roast peacock and baby seal, all the while lambasting the rest of the masses for their carbon footprints and general thoughtlessness.

. . .

Liberals don’t build things.  They don’t get their hands dirty.  They just attack people, call them RAAACISTS! when they don’t agree with the Liberal talking points, and then get back into their limousines to ride twelve feet to the red carpet.

More and more we think about the difference between the way we are personally treated by the Left and the Right.  To be blunt, neither extreme likes gays all that much.  Liberals are smart enough to put on a good face about it in public, but behind closed doors they make their jokes, too, and can be far crueler than you could ever imagine.  The Right’s foolish because — and we honestly believe this — conservatives are less prejudiced, reactionary, and hateful than Liberals…but they just don’t know how to do good PR.  Maybe it’s because conservatives are largely quiet, on the whole, and tend to mind their own business…so the random zealots who condemn people like us to fire and brimstone and eternal suffering (what, like having to watch MSNBC?) get more airplay.

As we’ve said before, about the worst thing a Republican ever did to us was tell us they were going to pray for us “to get better”, so we would suddenly one day wake up and be all about Ann Hathaway, and not focused on how last-season her Oscar dress is.

. . .

Remind us why Liberals are so much better than Republicans again, for gays, or for anything else.  While you’re at it, please explain why Christians are so persecuted by the media, and so maligned day in and day out…and yet these people jump into the fray when people need help.

While Liberals wait in the limousine for the best lighting to step out, for their photo op, to tell the cameras how sad they are about things like Haiti.

And how it’s all Bush’s fault.

Wow, gotta love those guys.  Uh, in a totally manly, agape way, of course. Seriously, I’m glad they’ve had some positive interactions with authentic Christians.  I know the media and the Left are relentless with their pathetic-but-effective “homophobe” pejoratives, but the Christians I know (and I know a couple) interact with GLBT folks in the same way described above.

Loving your enemies, false teacher style

Aside from the expected bile from the far Left about Rush Limbaugh’s recent medical issues, this was an interesting contrast: False teacher Chuck Currie pretended to care about Rush in his hatchet job titled Rush Limbaugh’s Release From Hospital Reminds Us To Love Our Enemies, while my favorite gay bloggers from Chicago wrote this piece where they displayed authentic concern: Rush Limbaugh, it is not your time. You have much more work to do, sir. Our thoughts and prayers for your speedy recovery.

What was amusing is that false teacher Chuck insists that Rush is a homophobe. Don’t tell the guys at Hillbuzz! The real homophobe is Chuck, of course, who is so afraid of the PC-police that he would rather deny the God he claims to follow, the word of God, church history and more rather than state the obvious: Homosexual behavior is a sin.

Chuck also says that Rush is racist. Red State said it well about the fictional quotes trumpeted by the MSM to attack Rush a couple months back:

You know, it says something pathetic about the left that Rush Limbaugh has been on the air 3 hours a day, 49 weeks a year, for over 20 years and they have to resort to made up quotes to hurt him and his business endeavors.

I do find it ironic that Chuck seems to follow Rush a lot more closely than I do (I don’t listen to his show).

The most disgusting thing about Chuck is his faux love for Rush.

To say that Mr. Limbaugh is racist, sexist and homophobic is a fair assessment.

Par from the course from Mr. Fallacies-R-Us. Of course Chuck thinks it is a fair assessment. Chuck came up with it!

Chuck goes on:

I’m an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and not a mental health professional, but I have enough professional experience to question whether or not Mr. Limbaugh’s hatred toward others does not provide evidence of mental health problems. We already know that Mr. Limbaugh is a (recovering) drug addict. Could it be that his personal anger is contributing to his health and addiction problems?

How quaint to point to Rush’s addiction! I’m surprised Chuck didn’t make the gratuitous fat jokes people normally do with Rush. Hmmmm . . . maybe that is because Chuck has an issue with gluttony? (At least that’s what his pictures show. Hey, isn’t that an easy way to discredit someone?!)

I’m not worried about Mr. Limbaugh’s eternal soul, however. He’s creating his own hell on earth where his hate and anger appear to be consuming him. Leading a sinful life has consequences and perhaps Mr. Limbaugh’s ill health is a direct result of his own actions.

Great analysis, Chuck. Maybe we should speculate on why you are such a compulsive over-eater. Is it because of your hatred for God and his word? Wow, these personal attacks are really easy and fun!

There has been a longstanding theological debate about sin and judgment. Many believe that God punishes sin through eternal damnation. Some might argue that Mr. Limbaugh’s attempts to divide the American people across political, racial and religious lines constitute sin. I would agree with that.

You see, Rush is a divider and that is really bad, but Chuck is a uniter because he totally agrees with everyone who agrees with him (not a typo, just a deliberate visit from the Department of Redundancy Department). People like Chuck aren’t equipped to debate an issue on the merits, so they resort to all sorts of personal attacks and other fallacies, such as false claims of unity. I’m sure Rush would love it if we were united with his views.

But at least Chuck found something he can call a sin! In his world homosexual behavior is not a sin. Crushing and dismembering innocent human beings is not a sin. But advancing conservative political views sure is!

It gets better. Of course Rush is responsible for the Oklahoma City bombing as well. And Chuck couldn’t leave out the question-begging issue of civil-rights-for-sexual-preferences.

It would be easy for people impacted by Mr. Limbaugh’s hateful rhetoric – the ways in which he has inspired anti-government feelings that helped fuel the Oklahoma City bombing, for example, or the ways he has given cause to those who wish to restrict civil rights for gays, blacks and women – to respond to his own hate with more hate but perhaps we should simply pray for Mr. Limbaugh.

Yeah, you can really feel Chuck’s love. Then again, he is a proven unrepentant serial liar and libeller, so why would anyone be surprised?

I don’t think Chuck knows what agape love is. It is having someone’s true long term best interests at heart. Does Chuck really pray for Rush? I do pray for Chuck – that he will repent and believe and stop misleading others with his false teachings.

Go read the Hillbuzz link next and see what real compassion looks like. It is interesting when the professing non-Christians get it right but the fake professing Christian isn’t just a fake but a bad fake.
