More deep thoughts from the iY Generation!

einstein

Note: The quotes below are by members of the iY Generation, Americans born after 1990. They are not the thoughts of DCG, the author of this post. ~Dr. Eowyn

“Capitalism is so fucked up. People literally die because medicine costs too much. Money isn’t real. It stands for some arbitrary number and people literally DIE because of that number. Because they don’t have that number so they die. That should freak us all out. We should be overthrowing the government.”

“Here’s the thing about being pro choice that people don’t get…You don’t have to morally agree with abortion to be pro choice. That’s why it’s not called pro abortion. It’s an understanding that you can’t make that choice for someone else and they have full control over that not you. It’s pro I’m not the boss of everyone else. That is important.”

NARAL: Putting a new spin on the non-existence of pro abortion…

“While it is very true that Hitler killed alot of people, it is also true that he was a fan of animals. He was not a bad guy when it came to his dogs, was even a vegetarian (which I personally agree with), and before he killed himself he killed his dogs too so they wouldn’t get tortured. This shows that Hitler was not always as bad as they make him out to be.”

holocaust

“What has happened due to the ideology of capitalism and the fact that it has no religious basis is that modernity has taken capitalism and has made our current society its bitch.”

“The reason for this is because I’ve done some online research and people have been given the right to freedom.”

“Not to be fake deep but the pressure of a competition-based economy is killing my gentle spirit.”

“The crazy Republicans wanted to teach the Southern Confederates a lesson and were mean to them. This harsh treatment caused the Southerners to mistreat the African Americans.”

And lastly, “womyn”!!!!!!

Fallen into the hollow of a tree, 9 y.o. girl met Jesus and unborn sister

Billy Hallowell for The Blaze, April 16, 2015, that 9-year-old Annabelle Beam claimed she visited Heaven and saw Jesus when she fell into the hollow of a tree on her family’s farm in Texas. After her rescue, Annabelle mysteriously recovered from a chronic illness.

The incident happened 3 years ago in 2011.

As recounted by the girl’s mother, Christy Beam, in her book Miracles From Heaven and in a The Church Boys podcast this week, “Annabelle and her sisters — they all three are rough and tumble country tom boys. They were out doing what they love to do which is climb trees. They climbed up and were just sitting on a branch talking, and then the branch began to give way.”

The cottonwood tree (Christy Beam)

Attempting to scramble to safety, Annabelle ended up falling into a hole on the side of a hollowed-out cottonwood tree (see above), tumbling 30 feet head-first into the trunk.

The little girl was trapped inside the tree for hours as firefighters and rescue teams tried to figure out a way to get her out. They eventually rigged up a series of pulleys and ropes that made the rescue possible. Remarkably, Annabelle had no severe injuries, though she was kept over night at a local hospital to be observed.

It was the next day that Annabelle told her mother what happened while she was trapped inside the cottonwood tree. As recounted by Christy Beam:

“The next day after they released her from the hospital … we were driving down the road … and she just turned to me out of the blue … and she just said, ‘You know mommy, I went to heaven when I was in that tree’…. My very, very first thought was, ‘Did you hit your head really hard? Was it just a dream … what is she talking about?’

She said that she sat on Jesus’ lap and that they talked and that he said that the firemen will get her out and when they do there will be nothing wrong with you. And [Jesus said], ‘I’m going to send my guardian angel to light the tree and to stay with you.’

Annabelle asked Jesus if she could stay in heaven, as she felt no pain during the encounter, but “He said, ‘I know you want to stay Anna, but I have plans for you on Earth that you can’t fulfill in heaven.’”

Then Annabelle was suddenly aware of the fact that she was back inside the tree, but there was a light in the deep dark hollow which helped her find the ropes and pulleys that the firefighters had rigged up.

In her time in Heaven, Annabelle said she saw her great-grandmother, who looked much younger. But what convinced Christy that her daughter was telling the truth was when Annabelle said she also saw a little girl in heaven who God told her was her sister.

Christy explained, “I had had two miscarriages, and one of them had been the creation of life,” while the other pregnancy had resulted in a blighted ovum — a fertilized egg that did not develop. She once told her daughters that she had two miscarriages, but did not go into detail about the blighted ovum.

Christy said,

“When Anna[belle] was telling me about [heaven], she said, ‘I saw a little girl in heaven, mommy, and she looked just like you … and [she] said, ‘I know that face and I asked God who is that little girl and he said, ‘Anna, that’s your sister’ and that did it for me. I just remember thinking there’s no way for her to have known.”

If Annabelle were lying, she would have said that she saw two children in heaven, but, instead, she said she only saw one. Considering that only one of the pregnancies progressed, Christy was floored, “I thought at that moment, ‘This is real, this happened.”

Annabelle had suffered from chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction, a painful disorder that involves how food is processed, among other complications. After the incident with the tree, however, Annabelle’s illnesses cleared up and she went from taking 10 medications a day to taking none.

Christy said, “Her life is different and everybody sees it.”

Christy Beam said that her daughter’s story will also be a feature film set to release in 2016. She hopes what happened to Annabelle Beam will change lives and people’s personal relationships with God.

Baby’s thumbs-up ultrasound saves her from being aborted

Her parents were told their baby had a life-threatening heart condition. Doctors twice recommended an abortion.

But when little Chanel Murrish‘s parents saw her ultrasound, they changed their minds.

Chanel Murrish gives thumbs up

Sarah Zagorski reports for Life News, April 13, 2015, that United Kingdom residents Fay and Michael Murrish were thrilled to be expecting their third baby. But at their 20-week scan they found out some devastating news— their unborn baby had a life-threatening heart condition called Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and had only a low chance of survival.

Even with operations, their baby would have only a 50-50 chance of surviving the first and would need two more. Her life expectancy would only be to young adulthood and she would eventually need a heart transplant.

In fact, doctors felt so strongly about their baby’s dire outcome that they recommended abortion twice.

However, the couple refused abortion after their baby started kicking in the womb and an ultrasound showed something remarkable.

Fay explained, “But Chanel started kicking. There was no way I could have a termination. I know she wanted to live because she was giving a huge thumbs-up at her scan.”

In 2014, Chanel Murrish was born via Caesarean section and was rushed into surgery. She became the youngest baby ever to undergo open-heart surgery in the United Kingdom and is now thriving. Fay concluded, “Chanel is going from strength to strength having got through not just the first operation but a second procedure at the age of just seven days.”

According to the Center for Disease control, HLHS is a birth defect that affects normal blood flow through the heart and as the baby develops, the left side of the heart does not form correctly. Research finds that HLHS is extremely rare but it does have a high mortality rate, accounting for approximately 23% of neonatal deaths. The condition can be detected on a fetal echocardiography, although in many cases it isn’t diagnosed until after birth because the unborn child appears to be developing normally.

LifeNews had reported on a previous case of a baby born with HLHS who successfully underwent two heart operations and is now doing well.

In 2012, Scarlett Crowther was born with the same condition as Chanel. She may not have made it at all had her mom decided to have an abortion, but Scarlett’s mother Rebecca Turner rejected that idea. Scarlett was given a 50/50 chance of surviving the defect just like Chanel but went through two successful heart operations, with one of them coming at five days after birth.

Mother and baby are now doing much better. Rebecca calls Scarlett a “little fighter. When I hold her now I just can’t believe how healthy and happy she is. She’s my miracle baby.”

Chanel Murrish

The ultrasound of little Chanel giving a thumbs-up HUMANIZES the life in Fay Murrish’s womb.

The pic made Fay and Michael Murrish realize that the life growing in Fay’s womb is a human being. That is why the pro-aborts get so enraged when pro-lifers display posters of aborted babies.

New Orleans Presbyterian Church holds rally to celebrate abortion

Christian churches in the United States are going to Hell in a wheelbarrow.

In January 2015, news came that a Kansas Episcopal church held a fundraiser for the abortion mill Planned Parenthood. Now a Presbyterian church in Louisiana has joined the blood lust.

First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans

Saynsumthn blogger Carole Novielli reports, via Life News, April 9, 2015, that last month, the First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans held a “Stand with Women” rally in support of a new Planned Parenthood abortion facility in the city.

A statement about the rally on the church website reads:

Recently First Presbyterian opened our doors to a impromptu Planned Parenthood rally that was enthusiastically attended by more than 200 supporters, including Councilwomen Latoya Cantrell and Susan Guidry, both of whom are passionately and consistently concerned about the state of health care in our city. We are looking forward to further events and lobbying our government in Baton Rouge for more funding for mental and physical health services in Louisiana.

First Presbyterian is committed to caring for the bodies as well as the souls of our community and supports the work that Planned Parenthood is doing in our neighborhood to build a heath care center.

Here’s a video of the sickening rally, with one woman after another declaring she “stands for women” is an enthusiastic supporter of killing innocent defenseless babies.

City Council member, LaToya Cantrell told the crowd, “It feels great to be here this afternoon knowing that the pews are filled with majority women who are standing up for the rights that we all deserve.

Rev. Fred J. Powell, III

Rev. Fred J. Powell, III is the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans. On the church’s “Staff” webpage, Powell describes himself as “the first out Gay protestant pastor in New Orleans, (and perhaps in Louisiana).”

In 2014, Powell introduced the Planned Parenthood abortion chain this way in the church bulletin:

Today, We welcome our soon to be neighbors, Planned Parenthood of New Orleans. They will present a minute for mission this morning. Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast is building a new health center on South Claiborne. Planned Parenthood is a trusted quality health care provider which has been operating a health center on Magazine Street for thirty years. The new health center is scheduled to open in 2015 and will provide well women exams, testing for STIs and HIV, cancer screenings and other related reproductive health services. In addition to health care services, Planned Parenthood provides age appropriate health education, parent education and healthy pregnancy education. Planned Parenthood is a community partner with many health and education programs

By “other related reproductive health services,” the “reverend” was referring to abortion — the deliberate, premeditated murder of innocent, defenseless human beings. Or doesn’t the “reverend” know that abortion accounts for 94% of Planned Parenthood’s for-profit business?

As or Planned Parenthood’s “education” that’s so extolled by the “reverend,” does he not know that its idea of education is teaching high school students about sex toys and porn and that there’s no need to tell your sex partners you have AIDS?

Here’s the First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans’ contact page. I urge you to drop Rev. Powell a line to inform him of the above!

Catholics Need Not Apply

‘Catholics need not apply’: Toronto city council blasted for rejecting appointee over her Catholic views

Catholic , Freedom Of Religion , Toronto

TORONTO, April 2, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) — Two Toronto Catholic trustees have accused Toronto city hall of anti-Catholic bias after councilors voted 20-17 on March 31 to bar Catholic school trustee Angela Kennedy from the Toronto public health board because of her Catholic views.

Kennedy and Toronto Catholic school board chair Mike Del Grande are backed up by their board, which released a statement April 2 objecting to the city’s “discriminatory treatment” of Kennedy. “Ms. Kennedy has been unfairly vilified for her personal views on matters relating to her position as an elected Catholic Trustee, which in our opinion is a flagrant violation of her religious freedoms,” Del Grande stated in the release.

Kennedy told LifeSiteNews that news of her selection – the first time in 13 years a Catholic trustee had been appointed to fill the single school board seat on the 13-member public health board – was leaked to the media “a couple of days ago.”

Councilor Joe Mihevc, chair of the public health board, then took the “unprecedented” step of introducing a motion Monday night to replace her with public school trustee Chris Glover, she said.

Toronto Catholic District School Board trustee Angela Kennedy
Kennedy is staunchly pro-life, opposed to so-called “gay-straight alliances,” and has voted against using the schools to disseminate the HPV vaccination.

“You cannot put on the recreation committee someone that is against sports and recreation,” Mihevc argued, according to the City Centre Mirror. “You cannot put on the committee of adjustment someone who’s against development.”

Mihevc repeated similar analogies to the Toronto Sun’s Don Peat April 1, when he dismissed the charges of anti-Catholicism. “You should not be chosen for the library board if you are opposed to the library system,” Mihevc, who said he’s Catholic, told Peat. “You should not be on the committee of adjustment if you can’t support the mandate of committee of adjustment which is minor variances, if you’re going to oppose everything.”

Mihevc’s office told LifeSiteNews that the councilor was busy all day and tomorrow as well, and not be available to comment.

Both Del Grande and Kennedy say the city’s vote amounts to anti-Catholic discrimination, a charge supported by Canada’s national pro-life, pro-family lobbying group Campaign Life Coalition.

“I knew this was coming, I could have written the script,” Del Grande told LifeSiteNews. “Catholics need not apply. This is discrimination at its best.” Catholics make up 33 percent of Toronto’s population, but when it comes to a seat at the table or representation on council, “we’re no different from the Jews, the blacks, or the Irish,” he said. “This city mouths one thing and does another.”

Del Grande found it particularly disturbing that Mihevc, who “claims to be a Catholic” was the one who “led the charge” against Kennedy.

“I’m pretty disappointed,” Kennedy told LifeSiteNews. “I feel like my religious freedom, my freedom of speech, my freedom of conscience, my freedom of religion to hold the views that I believe in, they have been violated.”

She is discussing options to appeal the decision with her lawyer, Kennedy added, and is considering filing a complaint with the city’s integrity commissioner, and the human rights commission.

Kennedy, who has been a registered nurse for 45 years, said that the appointment committee selected her after “a rigorous application process and an interview and an appointment from my board.”

In the board’s press release, Kennedy stated that, “for nearly half a century, I have been providing residents of this great and diverse city with quality healthcare without prejudice or discrimination on the basis of their religious beliefs, sexual orientation or political affiliation – And I expected to receive the same treatment.”

City hall has ignored its own process by voting her out, she told LifeSiteNews. “Their own selection committee nominated me, now they’ve turned around and said, you can’t have a position on the board of health.”

Joe Cressy, Paula Fletcher, and Gord Perks were among councilors who voted against Kennedy on March 31. “These are actually human rights issues, the right for gays and lesbians to lead an equal life in the city of Toronto,” Fletcher said, according to the Toronto Star.

Perks objected that Kennedy was unsuitable, because the city health board delivers certain programs such as encouraging safer sex. The motion was about “whether or not we are prepared to appoint people who support the legal mandate of the entity they are being appointed to,” he was quoted as saying in the Star.

Mayor John Tory supported Kennedy’s appointment, but made it clear he disagreed with her views. “If we started applying every test based on whether we disagree with somebody’s views on people we appoint to things . . . it’s sure going to change the nature of this place,” he said.

During the council meeting, counselors Fletcher and Cressy referenced Campaign Life Coalition’s website, which recorded Kennedy’s votes as a Catholic trustee.

Jonathan Goldsbie of NOW Magazine tweeted that Paula Fletcher “touches on Kennedy’s opposition to HPV vaccine: ‘This is a vaccine Campaign Life doesn’t like because it’s about HAVING SEX!’” He also tweeted: “Here’s Kennedy’s voting record, from which [Counselor Joe] Cressy was reading” and referred to Campaign Life Coalition’s website.

Campaign Life Coalition’s Jack Fonseca said, “The opposition to Angela’s appointment, seemingly spearheaded by Councilor Mihevc, is clearly rooted in anti-Christian bigotry. He opposes her appointment because he doesn’t like her Catholic religious beliefs. That’s discrimination under the Ontario Human Rights Code.”

Toronto’s board of health consists of six councilors, six citizens and one school board representative. Del Grande, formerly a city councilor for Scarborough-Agincourt, said that school board seat used to alternate between Catholic and public school boards each year. “When public health wants to come in to our schools, and we are one third of the population, do you not think we should have any voice?”

Del Grande had written to the appointment committee on Kennedy’s behalf, pointing out that “ongoing lack of representation” from Catholics on the Board of Health “is an enormous disservice to this large constituency,” according to the City Centre Mirror.

“Angela Kennedy wouldn’t be enough to overtake the board of health,” he told LifeSiteNews, “but she would bring to the table a different lens. She’s a nurse, she’s a woman, and yes, she’s a practicing Catholic.” Toronto’s motto, he added, is “diversity is our strength.”

Both Kennedy and Del Grande noted that the nomination process is usually conducted in private. After Kennedy’s selection was leaked to the media, she was questioned by a reporter about her views on abortion and gay-straight alliances, and asked if she is “homophobic,” she told LifeSiteNews.

Del Grande, formerly Toronto’s budget chief and a three-term councilor, said that the city “made a grave, grave error” by disclosing Kennedy’s name before the appointment was announced. “I was there 11 years, when we dealt with these in things in private.”

“Angela’s name should not have been in the public domain, this is a private item in private session,” he added. “Not only was she turned down but she was put out for public execution.”

CLC’s Fonseca urged “fair-minded Torontonians who believe that employment discrimination on the basis of religion is wrong” to contact their councilor and “demand they allow Angela’s appointment to continue.”

Abortion survivor speaks

NY State Assembly approves bill to inject poison into hearts of babies in the womb

For years, the New York state legislature has been embroiled in a battle over a package of bills called the Women’s Equality Act (WEA) that supposedly promotes the interests of women. The 10-point WEA is held up in part because the legislature has resisted the 10th point — a late-term abortion measure, AB 6221, which allows abortionists killing the unborn by shooting poison into their little beating hearts.

NY State AB 6221

Since 2013, abortion advocates have been holding the Women’s Equality Act hostage to this single AB 6221, refusing to break the 10-point bill up. The legislature resisted passing AB 6221 despite strenuous support from the supposedly Catholic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The position of the Catholic Church is and consistently has been that abortion is an “intrinsic evil,” which means it is not subject to negotiation. Being an intrinsic evil, abortion also takes precedence before any of the Church’s other concerns, including the darling of the Left — “social justice.”

On Tuesday, March 24, 2015, in a vote of 94-49 the New York State Assembly approved passage of AB 6221, which will expand third-trimester abortions and allow non-doctors to perform abortions.

Third-trimester abortion is also called late-term abortion — the deliberate murder of babies who are 7 to 9 months old, who feel pain, and who are viable if allowed to live outside their mothers’ wombs.

New York State law currently allows for late-term abortion, i.e., abortion in the third trimester, only when the mother’s life is in danger. AB 6221, sponsored by Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, will instead allow abortion on-demand throughout all nine months, i.e., up until the 9th month. The law would be changed to allow abortion for any reason deemed “relevant to the well-being of the patient” including physical, emotional, psychological, and familial factors, and the mother’s age.

Lori Kehoe, New York State Right to Life executive director, said:

“Expanding cruel and brutal third-trimester abortions has long been a goal of the anti-life lobby who never met an abortion they didn’t like. With no regard for the fully developed unborn baby who is violently dismembered, or otherwise killed, the New York State Assembly once again put the abortion lobby above New York State women and their children. We now look once again to the Senate to hold the line in defense of the children which happens to also be in accordance with the will of the rest of the people. It is ridiculous that in 2015, with all the technology at our disposal, we are still arguing whether or not an eight month old baby in the womb deserves protection. It is doubtful that our descendants will look kindly upon this period in our history, when we fought for the right to dismember babies weeks, days and even minutes before birth.

New York State Right to Life will be discussing this and other attacks on members of the human family at their free-to-the-public Lobby for Life Day on April 29 at the Legislative Office Building in Albany.

NY Assemblywoman Deborah Glick

New York State Assemblywoman Deborah J. Glick represents District 66 in New York City’s Greenwich Village. Her official bio says “Deborah is the first openly lesbian or gay member of the New York State legislature” and that “As an elected official, she has focused on civil rights, reproductive freedom, health care, lesbian and gay rights, the environment, housing, higher education, social justice, animal rights and funding for the arts.”

Clearly, for Glick, “animal rights” do not include the rights of the human unborn, even up to 9 months old.
