Catholic University of San Diego goes satanic

Catholic universities in the United States regularly sponsor not just nonChristian, but downright anti-Catholic, speakers and events, including pro-abortionists.

But the University of San Diego (USD) in southern California has gone even further with a drag show a week ago “starring” a transvestite-sodomite-satanist.

Here is California Catholic’s exclusive report, “University of San Diego Goes Satanic,” April 14, 2014:

Despite the pronouncement of the Vatican’s Congregation for Education that its two prior drag shows were a scandal, USD held its third drag show on Thursday, April 10.

The master of ceremonies for the event was the local professional transvestite/drag queen Tootie Nefertootie (below). His website reveals him to be a gay activist who aggressively promotes same-sex marriage.

Tootie tranny
For his last diabolical selection of the evening, Tootie lip-synced the lyrics from the song “Good N’ Evil” by Linda Eder:

Good and evil -
And their merits -
Men have argued through history -
As well they should!
My philosophy
Any child can see -
“Good is evil -
And therefore
All evil is good

Tootie stripped off the black robe but kept on the goat-horned headdress with a skimpy outfit. The headdress resembles the satanic symbol Baphomet, usually portrayed as a half-human and half-goat figure. The goat-horned image of Baphomet is the symbol for the Church of Satan.

Tootie as devilThe day following the drag show, during his Friday morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis warned us that the Devil still exists and that he [the Devil] doesn’t want anyone to follow Christ. Also, in another speech on Friday, April 11, Pope Francis recognized the importance of gender when he made the following statement: “it is necessary to reaffirm the right of children to grow up in a family, with a father and a mother capable of creating an ideal environment for their development and emotional maturity.”

An article from the official Vatican News Service, Zenit, entitled “Gender Is Not A Choice”, illustrates some of the problems that result when society accepts the position that gender is malleable.

The drag show concluded with a student representative of  USD Gay Pride thanking  “the school for letting this happen…[because]…as you know some people may find this conversation uncomfortable…[however]…this is a testament to our…Catholic identity and our mission and values as a Catholic school to promote diversity and inclusion.”

The USD officials present at the drag show (some of whom participated as speakers and judges), again publicly maintained the university’s party line that the Catholic Church actually endorses “gender nonconformity”.  Donors listed at the bottom of the program include Urban Mo’s, part of Mo’s Universe, which is a group of gay restaurants and bars in Hillcrest.

New poll shows statewide Texas GOP candidate enjoy double-digit leads

Abbott in the lead...

Abbott in the lead…

Dallas News: GOP governor nominee Greg Abbott is maintaining a strong lead over Democrat Wendy Davis, as Republican candidates throughout the ballot are in strong positions seven months out from the November election.

A new Public Policy Polling survey of registered voters in Texas shows Abbott leading 51 to 37 percent over Davis. The Fort Worth state senator has seen her negatives increase among voters over the past several months, with now 33 percent having a positive impression of her and 47 percent having a negative view.

While Davis has been fundraising and become more active on the campaign trail in recent weeks, she has yet to place a big TV outlay to introduce herself to voters.

Abbott enjoys a 40 percent positive view with 27 percent having a negative impression.

The survey shows that all Republican candidates are doing well with voters – even Rick Perry, who’s not running for re-election.

For the first time in years, Perry has climbed into the positive stratosphere with 48 percent approving of him, compared to 44 percent who disapprove. That’s up 18 points from two years ago, after his failed presidential bid.

In the lieutenant governor’s race, state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte trails both Republicans in the run-off. Dan Patrick leads her 51 to 35 percent and David Dewhurst leads her by 18 points – 50 to 32 percent.

The margins are similar in the U.S. Senate race, where incumbent John Cornyn leads Democrat David Alameel 49 to 32 percent.

Cornyn’s lead comes even with a low 31 percent approval rate. At best, even Republicans show only tepid support for him, pollsters said.

“There’s one finding in this poll that goes a long way toward explaining all the other ones,” PPP stated.

It’s that only 36 percent of voters in the state approve of the job Barack Obama’s doing to 58 percent who disapprove. “That makes life for Democrats running for office this year a lot more difficult,” pollsters said.

The random telephone poll of 559 registered voters was conducted April 10-13 and has a 4.1 percent margin of error, meaning findings could vary that much in either direction.

UPDATE 2:05 pm: Zac Petkanas, spokesman for Wendy Davis, criticized the methodology of the poll, saying that PPP failed to include voters who exclusively use cell phones instead of land-lines. Cell phones are “important to contacting African-American, Latino and young voters,” Petkanas pointed out. (raaaaacist!)

He also said that Davis is working on energizing qualified people who haven’t voted, which also would knock them out of the poll.

You know who

NYC’s tanning salons inspected more regularly than abortion clinics

richards

NY Post: The state Health Department is failing to inspect many of New York’s abortion clinics — with some facilities escaping scrutiny for more than a decade, bombshell documents obtained by The Post reveal.

Health inspectors regulate 25 diagnostic and treatment clinics and surgery centers that provide abortion services — though pro-choice advocates say there are 225 abortion service providers in New York state.

Eight of the 25 clinics were never inspected over the 2000-12 span, five were inspected just once, and eight were inspected only twice or three times — meaning once every four or six years.

A total of just 45 inspections were conducted at all 25 facilities during the 12-year period.

By comparison, city eateries are inspected every year and graded, while a new law requires tanning salons to undergo inspections at least once every other year.

Meanwhile, state officials — citing prior threats and violence against abortion providers — refused to identify the names and locations of the clinics it did inspect.

Health officials acknowledged the dearth of inspections, in response to a Freedom of Information lawsuit filed by Chiaroscuro Foundation, a conservative think tank that works to reduce abortions.

Chiaroscuro’s executive director, Greg Pfundstein, sought the information following a scandal in Philadelphia, where abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell was convicted of three counts of murder for cutting delivered babies’ spines with scissors and 21 counts of performing late-term abortions and other medical violations.

Gosnell’s clinic hadn’t been checked for 15 years before inspectors raided his facility in an unrelated prescription investigation and stumbled upon a house of horrors.

In New York City, 73,815 pregnancies were aborted in 2012. There were over 130,000 abortions statewide.

New York has one of the highest abortion rates in the country. More oversight is needed. Abortion clinics are as much a public concern as tanning salons. There should be regular inspections of all licensed abortion clinics,” Pfundstein said. “Right now, New York is only inspecting a fraction of abortion providers, and only very rarely. It’s hard to know which facilities are safe.”

In response to the legal request, the state Health Department noted it inspects only a limited number of abortion providers. And the facilities it does inspect are checked infrequently, according to the data it provided.

“Some facilities are not required to have ‘abortion services’ in their operating certificates in order to perform abortions,” Health Department records-access official Elizabeth Sullivan wrote in a letter, explaining why other abortion providers are not inspected.

“The Department does not otherwise maintain a list of every Article 28 facility that performs abortions.”

She said the agency only took legal action against one abortion clinic over 12 years. It provided the plaintiff the court papers but redacted the names, citing safety concerns.

The Health Department declined further comment.

Warren Buffet gives $millions for abortions

Don’t be fooled by his “aw-shucks I’m-just-a-regular-guy” folksy image.

Behind the smiling mask of Warren Buffet is a rabid pro-abort who funnels TENS OF MILLIONS of dollars into killing the unborn each year.

Warren BuffetBetsy Woodruff writes for The National Review, March 5, 2014, that documents from Buffet’s charitable organization and abortion-providing groups show that millions of dollars from the fortune of legendary investor Warren Buffett are going to pay for abortions.

Buffet, whose preternatural investing success has made him the fourth richest person in the world, is often described as folksy. But he’s also a longtime population-control buff, and his foundation pours tens of millions of dollars into abortion-funding work every year. In 2011, his foundation gave more than $115 million to pro-choice groups, with a large portion of that going to groups that fund abortions rather than merely doing education or advocacy.

National Review Online previously reported on the growing presence of charities that help women pay for abortions. Groups like the Lilith Fund have drawn increasing national attention, thanks in part to the efforts of pro-choice celebrities like Zach Galifianakis and Sarah Silverman. Buffett is not widely known as an abortion advocate, but his contributions dwarf those of better-known members of the pro-choice movement.

Here’s how: The Buffett Foundation — renamed the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation (STBF) in 2004 after Buffett’s wife’s death — exists as a medium for the investor’s charitable giving.

But David Callahan writes for Inside Philanthropy that Buffett’s STBF foundation is remarkably opaque — “a case study in non-transparency.” Although STBF ranked number five in total giving in 2012 of $367.1 million, which put it well ahead of such brand name foundations as Robert Wood Johnson, Kellogg, OSF, Mellon, and Packard, STBF’s website focuses only on education giving while omitting huge key funding areas.  If you try calling the foundation, you get a message saying that nobody is there and that they don’t accept proposals, have funding guidelines, or publish an annual report.

Despite the opacity, it’s clear the foundation pours millions into pro-choice organizations, with a special focus on funding for abortions. In addition to funding general women’s health organizations and some political groups, Buffett gives generously to organizations that use their funds specifically to help women pay for abortions. For example:

  • STBF gave more than $21 million in 2010 to the National Abortion Federation (NAF) Hotline Fund, one of America’s more prominent national abortion funds. That organization’s 990 in 2012 (the latest year accessible) says its mission is “to ensure that women have the information and resources they need to access quality abortion care.” In 2012, the NAF Hotline’s annual revenue was a little more than $26 million, per GuideStar, which means almost all of its annual revenue came from Buffett’s foundation.
  • The Buffett Foundation’s 990 for 2012 wasn’t available. But in 2011, it gave or pledged more than $40 million to Planned Parenthood, which provides abortions as part of its range of services.
  • STBF also gave more than $1 million to the Abortion Access Project and many other pro-abortion groups.
  • In 2011, Buffett also gave $750,000 to the National Network of Abortion Funds, which supports state and local abortion funds.
  • Buffett’s foundation has also helped organizations seeking to increase abortion access overseas, including:
    • $16 million to DKT International, which works to expand abortion access in India, Ethiopia, Mozambique, and other countries. DKT’s website says it “provided 1.2 million safe abortion doses” in 2013.
    • More than $9.4 million from 2009 to 2011 to Gynuity Health Projects, which works to expand abortion access in developing countries. Its website discusses its efforts to lower the cost of medical abortions and “to help support introduction of this promising new technology [mifepristone, an abortifacient].”

The above is a tiny slice of the support Buffett directs to organizations seeking to make abortion cheaper, more accessible, and less politically toxic. Buffett is consistently mum on abortion issues; he doesn’t put his mouth where his money is. But a look at his charitable giving suggests the pro-abortion movement has no better ally than the folksy billionaire.

And as further evidence, a pro-abort woman named Tracy Weitz recently joined the Buffet Foundation.

California Catholic Daily reports that Tracy Weitz was just hired by the Buffett Foundation in Omaha, Nebraska. Weitz, while at the Bixby Global Reproductive Health Center at the University of  California, San Francisco, had orchestrated the medical research project which ended in legalizing non-physician abortions in California.

Help! I’m trapped!

Pope Francis’ expression says it all. LOL

pope between POS & lurch

On the right is a man who flicks his tongue like a snake.

On the left is a man whose identity even the Obamacare sign-up website healthcare.gov couldn’t verify, and who not only approves of partial-birth abortion, he three-times voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002 – a federal law that extends legal protection to an infant born alive after a failed attempt at induced abortion. If he has his way, babies born alive after a failed abortion will be left alone in a room, to slowly die from starvation and neglect.

If Democrats Had Their Way…

detroit

If Democrats Had Their Way…

Remember New Coke? It was a dismal failure and the company scrapped it. How about three slice toasters? They were supposed to be the rage once, too. But nobody bought them and they disappeared into the dustbin of history.

That’s how life works in the private sector. If people don’t buy and the product doesn’t deliver, it disappears. Companies and individuals are forced to develop winning strategies in order to survive. If not, they perish.

The policies of the Democratic Party are not like that. The policies of the Democratic Party — high taxes, exorbitant union contracts and pensions, excessive government regulation, gun control, dysfunctional schools, etc. — continue to produce one failed program after another, yet they are fully supported by an average of 52% of the voting public. If they operated in the private sector, they would be forced into bankruptcy. However, because they are funded by our tax dollars, they have a never-ending spigot of cash flowing into their coffers. In essence, they are rewarded for failing.

Detroit is a city that has been under complete Democratic control for over forty years. And when I say complete, I mean complete. Every official, every policy, every decision affecting Detroit has come 100% from the Democratic Party and their supporters. The result? Bankruptcy.

Detroit is $2.5 billion in debt. That’s billion, with a “b”. Thousands of homes, buildings, and businesses are vacant and abandoned, and two thirds of the city’s street lights do not work.

Detroit is America’s most dangerous city with a violent crime rate five times higher than the national average. It’s the murder capital of the country, and — because it’s under Democratic control — Detroit has strict gun control laws.

In short, Detroit is a hellhole. A man-made, Democratic-Party-created hellhole. And it’s exactly what all of America would look like if Democrats had their way.

Detroit is not an aberration. It is a direct result of Democratic leadership and how applying the principles of the Democratic Party actually play out in real life. It’s as simple as 1 + 1 = 2. You do this action, you get this result.

If Detroit shows all of us the natural consequence of what happens when the Democratic Party gets its way, why do people support it? Why do tens of millions of Americans continue to vote for Democrats? The answer, I believe, consists of five distinct elements within the Democratic Party.

In the first group are the hardcore socialists and communists that form the leadership and financial backing of the Democratic Party. These are the folks that actually hate America and want to destroy it. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/03/22/99549/). They are the corrupt union leaders, the financial donors, the advisors, the radical college professors and teachers, the leaders of various “equality” groups and causes, the militant feminists, the Islamic extremists, education officials and administrators, and the actual politicians themselves. I estimate their numbers to comprise 5% of less of the Democratic Party.

To this first group, Detroit is a shining example of how they would like all of America to be. Many of them are atheists, or outright satanists, and they hate not only America, but also Christianity, because they see Christians as the primary roadblock that keeps them from turning America into a Communist dictatorship. Death, murder, kidnapping, and rape mean nothing to them if it helps to accomplish their objective.

The second group is big business and union members. The majority of those in this group do not hate America, however they can develop intense hatred toward any individual or group that threatens their current financial status. They support the Democratic Party because it pays.

For big business, that means bailouts, favorable loans, taxpayer subsidies, and government regulation to create monopolies and eliminate competition. You know who I’m talking about: Hollywood, Facebook, Yahoo, Apple, GE, Wall Street, owners of professional sports teams, etc.

For union members, it means maintaining their high salaries, pensions, insurance, and paid holidays. You’ll find many teachers in this group. All together, this second group comprises about 20% of the Democratic Party. They vote for their own personal gain, regardless of how much it hurts their country or their fellow citizens.

The third group consists of the media. I estimate them to comprise 5% or less of the Democratic Party. Like the first group, many of them are hardcore socialists and communists who also hate America, but their hatred is cloaked with a thinly disguised intellectual disdain. They consider themselves smarter than everyone else. Though they are intelligent, they suffer from a total lack of wisdom. If their intellectual superiority is threatened, they can revert to most violent and animalistic of natures, all condoned through intellectual justification.

This third group — the media — do everything they can to obscure reality in order to confuse and indoctrinate the fourth group: Useful Idiots.

“Useful idiot” sounds like a harsh term, but it was actually coined by the Left to describe many of their followers. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/12/29/are-you-a-useful-idiot/)

It saddens me to say that I have many friends, acquaintances, and co-workers in this group. They are nice people. Many of them would give you the shirt of their back, or rush to your aid at the first sign of an emergency. Sadly, they just don’t know very much about history or politics.

Useful idiots have been dumbed down at school and at home. Now in their 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, and beyond, they continue to believe everything they’re told by the mainstream media. They have been exposed to alternate information only in the form of ridicule. Many of them are so busy working, earning a living, raising families, paying bills, and looking for love that they just don’t have time to read and educate themselves.

I was in the position of not having time to read myself until I was laid off a couple of years ago and actually had time to research what was happening in the country. That’s when I discovered this site, Commieblaster, Moral Matters, and many more.

In this group you will also find many females who have been taught to accept abortion and feminism, and many males who accept abortion and feminism as a means to seduce and sleep with the aforementioned females. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/11/15/an-open-letter-to-obama-supporters/) I estimate useful idiots to comprise a full 40% of the Democratic Party.

The fifth and final leg of the Democratic Party are what I call Useful Leeches. This group consists of all races and ages, and they are far worse than the useful idiots. Useful idiots actually mean well. Useful leeches are angry, bitter, resentful, and believe that the world owes them a living. They survive on government handouts: food stamps, welfare, Section-8, disability, etc., and they hate themselves because of it.

Useful leeches have no desire to improve their station in life and would love nothing better than to drag the entire country down to their level of misery and poverty. Not surprisingly, this group tends to be extremely racist and intolerant. They live in a constant state of fear.

The hardcore socialists and communists of the first and third groups love useful leeches, because they are so easily manipulated. They make excellent shock troops, and can be employed to strike fear among the population and silence critics on the right.

If there’s any hope of saving our country, it lies with the useful idiots. With extremely few exceptions, the members of the other groups are not going to change. Useful idiots CAN change if they are approached and educated correctly. A friendly conversation here, a book or article passed along there, and slowly but surely the tide can be turned.

If we can begin to sway even 5-10% of the useful idiots, we can tilt the balance of our country back to its Constitutional foundation. We can’t look to others to do this. The work is ours. The future of our country rests with us.

(Thanks to my friend, Alan, for suggesting this topic.)

Aborted babies incinerated to heat UK hospitals

abortion-rightsWhen tiny human beings are aborted killed with the approval of law, human life itself is cheapened.

And when the death cultists call the unborn mere “cancerous lumps of tissue,” ​don’t be surprised when said “lumps” are disposed of as garbage.

Sarah Knapton reports for The Telegraph, March 24, 2014, that an investigation by television Channel 4 found that the bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies in the UK were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals.

Ten National Health Service (NHS) trusts have admitted burning fetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in “waste-to-energy” plants which generate power for heat. At least 15,500 fetal remains were incinerated by 27 NHS trusts over the last two years alone.

A “waste to energy” facility at Ipswich Hospital in Suffolk, England, operated by a private contractor, incinerated 1,101 foetal remains between 2011 and 2013. The remains were brought in from another hospital before being burned, generating energy for the hospital site.

Ipswich Hospital Trust said it was concerned to discover that foetal remains from another hospital had been incinerated on its site. A spokeswoman said: “The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust does not incinerate foetal remains” and “takes great care over foetal remains”

________________

Note: National Health Service is the UK’s “publicly” (i.e., government) funded health care system.

________________

Last night the UK Department of Health issued an instant ban on the practice which health minister Dr. Dan Poulter branded “totally unacceptable.” He said, “While the vast majority of hospitals are acting in the appropriate way, that must be the case for all hospitals and the Human Tissue Authority has now been asked to ensure that it acts on this issue without delay.”

Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS Medical Director, has written to all NHS trusts to tell them the practice must stop. The Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, has also written to the Human Tissue Authority to ask them make sure that guidance is clear. And the Care Quality Commission said it would investigate Channel 4′s findings.

Channel 4″s Dispatches program, which will air tonight, also found that parents who lose children in early pregnancy were often treated without compassion and were not consulted about what they wanted to happen to the remains.

In other words, parents who had lost their babies to miscarriage were not even informed that their babies’ little bodies were incinerated, treated as garbage and used to heat hospitals.

And to think we were horrified by the Nazis’ extermination of Jews in gas chambers and using their fat to make soap.

Just remember: This is the same national (“single payer”) healthcare system that is the dream of Obama and the Democrats for America.

Why Do Progressives and Democrats Hate America?

Flag

Why Do Progressives and Democrats Hate America?

It’s a loaded question, I know. But please, bear with me for just a moment and put aside all the rhetoric you’ve heard about political correctness. I ask only that you approach the question from a position of pure logic.

Progressives and Democrats want to change America. That’s no secret. They boast about it openly, and base their political campaigns entirely on the premise of change. I’m sure we agree so far.

Now consider this: Why does anyone want to change anything unless they’re unhappy with it? If you’re happy with your job, would you change? If you loved your dog, would you trade him in for a new model? How about your spouse? Does anyone ever leave their spouse who isn’t tremendously unhappy and no longer in love?

I’m sure we can also agree that change stems from disappointment and unhappiness.

Now back to America. Your children won’t hear it from their teachers or read about it their school books, and you certainly won’t see it in your newspaper or anywhere on television, but the United States of America has done more good for more people than all the other countries of the world put together.

America began as a haven for those seeking religious freedom and fought a war to preserve that freedom.

America fought a war to end slavery and won. (Democrats supported slavery. Republicans opposed it. After the war, the defeated Democrats formed the Ku Klux Klan. Funny how white Americans today are still blamed for the slavery of a hundred and fifty years ago, yet never thanked for sacrificing their lives in order to end slavery.)

America won two World Wars, and put an end to Hitler’s socialist Nazi party.

America stemmed the tide of communism and provided safety for thousands of Vietnamese refugees who would have been murdered by the communists of North Vietnam.

For centuries, America has given freedom and hope to the oppressed; hope and joy to the suffering; and liberty and opportunity to people of all races and nationalities. The proof of her greatness can be found every day in the millions of immigrants who flock to her shores seeking the freedom that America offers.

Yet Progressives and Democrats want to change America. Doesn’t that make you just a slight bit suspicious?

Indeed, Progressives and Democrats want not just to change America, but to fundamentally transform it. And they seek to do so under an ideology that has killed more people in the last one hundred years than have died in all the wars in the history of the world combined: Socialism.

Socialism under Hitler murdered millions and set the entire world at war.

Socialism under Stalin murdered upwards of forty million people.

Socialism under Mao murdered over sixty million people.

Socialism under Castro continues to murder people today.

Everywhere socialism goes, it kills.

Yet Socialism is what Progressives and Democrats want for America. Doesn’t THAT make you a tad bit suspicious?

Just what could cause so many people to despise a country so great as America? Let’s examine the question a little more closely.

Have you ever seen a man get rejected by a beautiful woman? At first, he criticizes her, looking for whatever flaws he can find, then he despises her, and eventually he hates her. Why? Because he can’t have her. His hatred is actually a form of self-hatred. He feels unworthy of the woman who rejected him and projects his hate onto her and others. His future attempts at seduction become a means of revenge, a perverted attempt to escape his own self-loathing.

The same thing happens when a woman is rejected by a man. There’s a reason why William Congrave wrote the famous words “nor hell a fury like a woman scorned.” The scorned woman condemns and sets out to destroy the man she cannot have. Like the rejected man, she suffers from extreme self-hatred. It’s self-hatred that fuels feminism and its constant attacks on heterosexual men. If we can’t have them, we’ll destroy them.

Progressives and Democrats are no different in their hatred of America.

America was born a religious, God-loving country and it remains so today. Progressives and Democrats, on the other hand, have rejected God and embraced lives of sin. They support and encourage abortion, racism, intolerance, promiscuity, homosexuality, government theft, and a host of other ills, and then project the guilt and self-hatred they feel for embracing these sins onto a hatred of America and its religious heritage. Because Progressives and Democrats falsely believe that God has rejected them, they reject God.

America has offered opportunity and economic freedom to anyone who is willing to risk and work hard. Progressives and Democrats have risked once or twice in their lives, failed, and are now terrified at the prospect of competing with other risk-takers. Their fear leads to a sense of entitlement that extends to food stamps, housing allowances, “free” health care, and personal and corporate welfare. The stronger their self-hatred, the stronger they feel they are above hard work. They hate America, because it reminds them of their own failures to provide for themselves and their families.

America stands for strength, independence, honor, and compassion. Progressives and Democrats are so frightened by life and have developed such a dependence on government for survival, that they have lost all of these qualities. And they hate themselves for it.

No self-respecting man can call himself a man if he’s beholden to government entitlements for his survival. Progressive and Democrat men know this and they hate themselves for it.

No self-respecting woman can call herself a woman if she rejects the honor and compassion of motherhood by embracing abortion and feminism. Progressive and Democrat women know this and they hate themselves for it.

Together, Progressive and Democrat men and women hate America, because it reminds them of all the positive qualities of strength, self-reliance, and kindness they lack the courage to develop in themselves. Like rebellious children who must depend on their parents for survival, but hate their parents because of it, Progressives and Democrats live in a state of suspended adolescence, forever running from the responsibility of motherhood, fatherhood, and limited government.

They hate America, because they hate themselves.

Which brings us to socialism.

Progressives and Democrats embrace socialism, because it represents everything they long for: the complete eradication of the individual. With all of society reduced to lowly pawns, they no longer have to fear being reminded of their own inadequacies. Everyone can be as miserable as they are. Everyone can feel the self-hatred they feel.

With no one to remind them of their sins, Progressives and Democrats believe their guilt and intense self-hatred will finally be removed. What they fail to realize is that the solution to all their ills lies within them. By embracing America, they can embrace God. And by embracing God, they can eliminate their guilt, their self-hatred, and all the factors that contribute to their misery. It’s a solution so simple and so easy that their own leaders are forced to spend billions of dollars, and destroy millions of lives in order to hide it from them.

If you support Progressivism or the Democratic Party, then you also support socialism. And if you support socialism, then, by definition, you also support the socialism of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro, and many others. Is that something you can live with? Are you ready and willing to forgive yourself and return to the One who calls you?

He’s waiting. He’s been waiting. The first step is simply to say, “Please, God, forgive me…”

Professor wants global warming deniers to be imprisoned

Lawrence Torcello

Lawrence Torcello is an assistant professor of philosophy at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY.

Note that his academic specialty is Philosophy, not Science.

In an opinion essay of March 13, 2014, for the UK newsletter The Conversation, Torcello proclaims that those who deny the “science” of climate change man-made global warming should be criminally prosecuted who, when found guilty, will be imprisoned.

Torcello begins with an earthquake that rocked L’Aquila, Italy in 2009, which killed more than 300 people and left nearly 66,000 people homeless. Six Italian scientists were sentenced to 6 years in prison for not communicating the risks of the impending earthquake.

Torcello then opines that just as the Italian scientists were jailed for not adequately informing the public of the L’Aquila earthquake:

“this is just what is happening with the current, well documented funding of global warming denialism.

More deaths can already be attributed to climate change than the L’Aquila earthquake and we can be certain that deaths from climate change will continue to rise with global warming. Nonetheless, climate denial remains a serious deterrent against meaningful political action in the very countries most responsible for the crisis.

We have good reason to consider the funding of climate denial to be criminally and morally negligent. The charge of criminal and moral negligence ought to extend to all activities of the climate deniers who receive funding as part of a sustained campaign to undermine the public’s understanding of scientific consensus.

Then Torcello airily and arrogantly dismisses free speech implications in his proposal to CRIMINALLY PROSECUTE those who disagree with him on manmade global warming:

My argument probably raises an understandable, if misguided, concern regarding free speech. We must make the critical distinction between the protected voicing of one’s unpopular beliefs, and the funding of a strategically organised campaign to undermine the public’s ability to develop and voice informed opinions. Protecting the latter as a form of free speech stretches the definition of free speech to a degree that undermines the very concept.

Torcello describes his “current projects” as including “the environment,” “animal welfare,” and “political discourse.” Among his publications are encylopedia entries on “animal rights” and “separation of church and state,” and journal articles on “separating the infant from the fetus” and “same-sex marriage.” No doubt, we can expect future opinion essays from Assistant Professor Torcello that deniers of animal rights, pro-lifers, pro-prayer in school, and opponents of same-sex marriage should also be CRIMINALLY PROSECUTED.

As a university professor, Lawrence Torcello can’t be fired for saying and writing whatever he wants, under the guise of “academic freedom.” Professors who achieve tenure are even more securely protected.

But Torcello is an assistant professor, which means he doesn’t yet have tenure. You can help make sure he doesn’t get tenure. Contact the president of his university and convey your objections about Torcello:
