Sorry I missed your blogs today.

Filed under: My Life and Rants, News — Scottie @ 22:41

Due to my constantly trying to finesse my computers and make it a slight bit better, I screwed up and lost most of the day trying to get my main blogging computer back.  I was not able to get to a lot of comments and it kept me from getting to all your wonderful blogs.  It was totally my fault as I changed a setting that went over my entire network.  Oh well Ron thinks it is funny that I made such a goof, I dumped my main blogging computer and was reloading it when I realized the true problem, one online setting that was messing everything up.   I now have days of work a head of me to get my computer back to where I am comfortable with it.  But as Ron said, it is what I love to do.  Hugs

More truth

Ah so true. Cats are shameless. One of mine tried to get me up at 5 AM this morning. After getting him what he wanted I went back to bed. So after realizing I was not going to stay up, Milo came into the bedroom, got up on the bed where the other cat was sleeping with me, and started a cat fight. Needless to say I was up for the day after that. Cats! Hugs

Roger Stone Posts “Space Force” Pic (With Swastikas)

They are not even trying to hide their racism anymore, in fact they seem proud of it.   Hugs

Roger Stone, longtime ally of President Donald Trump, posted a photoshopped picture on Instagram Tuesday showing himself, the president, and other Trumpworld defenders in spacesuits. But the picture shows the mock Space Force team wearing shocking insignias. Swastikas. They’re shown wearing Swastikas. Judging by the imagery and the “in space no one can hear you lie” caption, the picture was most likely made by a Trump critic — but Stone decided to latch onto it at first in order to jab at the “liberal scumbags.”

Bigotry on display as adults threat harm and castration towards a 12 year old trans girl.

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Education, Gender, Harm, Health, News, Questions, Religion, Youth — Scottie @ 13:17

Please notice the call was for churches to enforce an action in a public school.   There was not any problem problem for years.  I don’t believe the girl was “peeking”, I think that was made up to cause trouble for the trans girl.  First kids do not have to peek today to see genitals, they have the internet on just about every device in their lives.   That whole “peeking” thing sounds so old school I am confident a parent made it up.

One parent found out, and took to a private Achille Facebook group to complain. That’s where the threats started. Adults called Maddie by “it” and “thing.” Some said she should be stabbed or beat up. One even suggested it was open hunting season for transgender people. “That’s a threat against her life–that’s scary,” Rose said. “These are adults making threats– I don’t understand it.”


“Why are parents letting their kids be transgender?” said one post. “Parents and Churches need to shut this down, the Bible says God created man, and woman . . . not any transgender bs,” said another. “Hell with new laws and new rules, this is what our future is if WE don’t stop it.”

Others made disturbing threats of violence: “If he wants to be a female make him a female. A good sharp knife will do the job really quick.” “Just tell the kids to kick a– in the bathroom and it won’t want to come back!!”

An Air Force Leader Wants to Promote Jesus via the Military, Says Watchdog Group

Filed under: Atheism, Bigotry, Criminal, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 10:59

For years there has been a steady growth of christians pushing their religion in the military.  I was subject to it in the 1980’s.  These people really are dangerous because they use their religion as a weapon and if you want promotion or even leave time, you have to be on their good side.   Which means go to church, go to bible studies, do the christian stuff.   In training camps if you do not want to spend sunday doing chores you have to go to church.  Christian church.   It has spread and is getting to be a serious problem.   Remember the military is full of people of all different faiths and non-faith, but not if the christians have their way.  They want a christian take over as much as the muslims want an islamic world.   The rest of us are stuck in the middle of these religions fighting for world dominance.    Hugs

What has gone unmentioned in all this is how Teichert has been running an online Christian ministry for years, arguably violating military policy, in which he also expressed a desire to convert people under his command as well as his superiors.

For years now, Teichert has run a group called Prayer at Lunchtime for the United States, in which he’s posted articles and interviews merging church and state. He also has no problem using this military achievements while proselytizing — a major no-no.

When he spoke at a religious conference in 2016, he used his military title in his description. On blog posts he made, he falsely said “our nation was founded by Christians as a Christian nation.” Then there’s the list of people he wants everyone to pray for, including Donald Trump, “A return to our Biblical foundation,” “Christian leaders to find favor among men,” and “Key leaders to accept Christ as their Savior.”

Perhaps the most egregious thing he’s ever said was during a 2017 sermon for Fountain City Baptist Church in Alabama. You can hear it around the 7:30 mark or in the clip below:

… I would ask for your prayers for wisdom in my life of leadership and discernment and understanding and knowledge for influence over the nation’s senior leaders that I get to rub shoulders with. My desire in my life is to maximize my impact on people in our country for the Lord.

GOP Candidate, a Pastor, Wants to Go Back to When Being Gay Was “Criminalized”

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Bigotry, Homosexual, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 10:50

In one generation you and I have witnessed this country sliding from a nation who once shared a moral vision based on Judeo-Christian ethic to a nation floundering in moral decay. In one generation we have watched our nation who once believed in lifelong marriages to the same spouse to a divorce rate now well over 50 percent. We have watched in one generation where homosexuality was once criminalized to now we see the criminalization of Christianity. And I could go on and on with the entertainment, with the education, with the life issue.

That “lock the gay away” sentiment may not have been out of place when Harris was pastor of First Baptist Church Charlotte, but no electable politician should long for a time when some of his own constituents would be in prison despite doing nothing wrong.

(While we’re at it, there’s no criminalization of Christianity, either. The government is not raiding churches on Sunday mornings.)

It’s not even the only time he’s said something both nasty and untrue about the gay community. In 2013, Harris, running for U.S. Senate at the time, falsely claimed gay people choose that “lifestyle.”

It’s nice not being part of an evil fictional supervillain’s cause.
Also, does this mean they’ll shut up now?

“God is an ever-receding pocket of scientific ignorance that’s getting smaller and smaller and smaller as time moves on.” ― Neil deGrasse Tyson

“Faith” is an admission your beliefs are unreasonable.

When your best evidence is a rumour about a rumour about a rumour.
