Sunday Devotional: If anyone was unwilling to work, neither should that one eat

2 Thessalonians 3:7-12

Brothers and sisters:
You know how one must imitate us.
For we did not act in a disorderly way among you,
nor did we eat food received free from anyone.
On the contrary, in toil and drudgery, night and day
we worked, so as not to burden any of you.
Not that we do not have the right.
Rather, we wanted to present ourselves as a model for you,
so that you might imitate us.
In fact, when we were with you,
we instructed you that if anyone was unwilling to work,
neither should that one eat.
We hear that some are conducting themselves
among you in a disorderly way,
by not keeping busy but minding the business of others.
Such people we instruct and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ
to work quietly and to eat their own food.

God’s greatest gift to humanity, aside from the gift of life, is the terrifying gift of free will—the favoring of one thing and the eschewal of another, informed by reason.

The Latin root of the word “terrify” is terrificare. To “terrify” is to cause to feel extreme fear. And terrifying precisely is God’s gift of free will, for when our free will is exercised to evil, the consequences are disastrous.

Terrifying though it is, free will is given to humans (and angels) because only by freely electing to believe in, obey, honor, and love God do the preceding acts have authenticity and meaning. For what good is a love that is coerced? As St. Thomas Aquinas put it, “Man has free will: otherwise counsels, exhortations, commands, prohibitions, rewards and punishments would be in vain.”¹

¹Summa Theologia of St. Thomas Aquinas, Volume One (New York: Benziger Brothers, 1947), p. 418.

The above reading from St. Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians is a powerful statement against the institution of government-enforced welfare, an institution that has become colossal and immovable in our time in the form of the bloated welfare state.

Christians are exhorted to be charitable. Charity is something voluntarily given to help the poor and the needy, which studies show conservatives give more in both money and services than liberals. (Conservatives also believe more in free will and have stronger will power.)

But welfare, the revenue for which is extracted via confiscatory taxation, is not charity because it is enforced, that is, involuntary. And as St. Paul pointed out in his letter to Philemon, a good deed that is coerced is no longer good:

I did not want to do anything without your consent,
so that the good you do might not be forced but voluntary.

And yet liberal Christians precisely support this enforced charity — which is an oxymoron — in the name of “social justice”. Paradoxically, those same liberal Christians are “pro-choice” when it comes to the government-sanctioned murder of unborn and entirely innocent human beings who most certainly are denied any choice in the matter.

For the martyrdom of Paul, see “St. Paul, whom Christ struck blind”.

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

S.F. jury awards Planned Parenthood $2.2M in damages against pro-life journalist David Daleiden

Yesterday, a jury in San Francisco U.S. District Court, found in favor of Planned Parenthood (PP) in its civil lawsuit against David Daleiden, the courageous founder of Center for Medical Progress (CMP) who took the undercover videos showing PP’s participation in the ghoulish harvesting and trafficking of baby body parts.

The jury awarded Planned Parenthood $1.35 million in damages on the RICO (racketeering) charges, $870,000 in punitive damages and presumably millions of dollars in attorneys’ fees on top of that.

Thomas More Society, a not-for-profit, national public interest law firm
dedicated to restoring respect in law for life, family, and religious liberty, is leading Daleiden’s defense. In an email, Tom Brejcha, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Society, calls the verdict “the worst case scenario” — “the predictable result of an unfair trial presided over by a biased judge”.

Defending Daleiden is not the only abortion battle that Thomas More Society is fighting. Brejcha writes that “earlier today the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion ruling against us in the related case brought by the National Abortion Federation” and that “Thomas More Society attorneys will be back in State Court Judge Christopher Hite’s courtroom in less than a month for his decision in the criminal case” against Daleiden and the CMP.

Brejcha vows that Thomas More Society will continue standing alongside Daleiden in this multi-front war that will take years to win, “until we defeat every lawsuit and clear David or every charge.” 

Thomas More Society is asking for our help. To donate, go here.

I never ask you to donate unless I myself have donated. I have donated to the Thomas More Society, and I will donate more.

According to Charity Navigator, administrative expenses account for only 7.4% of Thomas More Society’s total expenses. In 2017, its total expenses ($4,839,610) exceeded its total revenue ($4,702,038) by $137,572. As president,  Brejcha’s total compensation (salary, cash bonuses and expense accounts) was $175,366, which is a reasonable salary compared to the salaries of the CEOs of other non-profits.

In 2016, Charity Navigator undertook a CEO Compensation Study of 4,587 U.S. charities, using their IRS Forms 990 for fiscal year 2014. The study found that the median CEO compensation was $123,362 and that “CEO salaries at nonprofits reflect the regional variation in the cost of living. For example, CEOs at charities in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, which include cities like Boston, Washington D.C. and New York, tend to earn higher salaries, than those in other parts of the country.” Thomas More Society is in Chicago, Illinois.

In 2013, Charity Navigator’s CEO Compensation Study found that 78 CEOs CEOs earned salaries between $500,000 and $1 million. Among them were:

  • Laurance Hoagland Jr., Chief Investment Officer of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, earned a salary of $2.5 million.
  • John Seffrin, CEO of American Cancer Society, earned $2.1 million, while also serving at the White House on the public health advisory group.
  • Roxanne Spillett, President of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, earned $1.8 million.
  • Emily K. Rafferty, President of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, earned nearly $1.5 million.
  • Placido Domingo, General Director of the Los Angeles Opera, earned $1.35 million. Domingo is an opera singer and conductor as well, performing in more than 3,600 shows.
  • Michael Kaiser, President of the JFK Center for Performing Arts in Washington D.C., earned $1.348 million.
  • Brian A. Gallagher, President and CEO of United Way Worldwide, earned $1.2 million.
  • Michael Miller, CEO of Goodwill, earned $856,043.

In 2017, the CEO and president of the National Abortion Federation (NAF), Vicki Saporta, was paid a salary of $392,018. NAF’s new president is a lesbian Episcopal priest.

Please help David Daleiden and pray for him.

PURE EVIL: Drag queen “performs” self abortion at bar

This is a post I’ve debated whether or not to do for several reasons: 1) I DESPISE drag queens and their mocking of real women; 2) the subject matter of this video is PURE EVIL and 3) progressive’s complete DISRESPECT for human life is the lowest of the low.

But here we go…

This video is not for the faint of heart and is DEFINITELY NSFW.

A drag queen by the name of “Blair Back” thought a “self abortion” would make for a great Halloween performance.

“Blair” is 24 years old and described this “costume” as “zombie cannibal.”

Blair describes HIS performance as such: “The inspiration for this performance was from a lot of horror movies where a woman got pregnant by and alien, demon, monster, et cetera and they have to cut the baby out of her before it kills her from the inside.”

Here’s the performance:

Blair can justify HIS performance however HE wishes. It doesn’t change the fact that HE is promoting evil intentions.

Another reason to DESPISE Halloween and its satanic followers.

Twitter to ban all political advertising

Jack Dorsey, CEO of  Twitter and self-appointed censor of free political speech, announced on the eve of Satan’s holiday that ALL political advertising  on Twitter is now banned.

In addition, the ban extends t0 election advertising and political issues. Think anti-abortion, pro second amendment, and global climate change skeptics. In addition, it does not take an Einstein to figure out that this policy is aimed directly at President Trump, who uses Twitter to inform citizens of important issues that Twitter and the rest of the left wing, libtard, socialist/communist media cabal ignore.

Twitter will ban all political advertising, the company’s CEO has announced, in a move that will increase pressure on Facebook over its controversial stance to allow politicians to advertise false statements.

The new policy, announced via Jack Dorsey’s Twitter account on Wednesday, will come into effect on 22 November and will apply globally to all electioneering ads, as well as ads related to political issues. The timing means the ban will be in place in time for the UK snap election.

@jack

We’ve made the decision to stop all political advertising on Twitter globally. We believe political message reach should be earned, not bought. Why? A few reasons…🧵

Twitter had previously implemented rules and restrictions for political advertising.

The announcement comes as Facebook is embroiled in a controversy over its decision to exempt ads by politicians from third-party fact checking and from a policy that bans false statements from paid advertisements. Dorsey explained the motivations behind the change in a lengthy Twitter thread that appeared to include several references and responses to the convoluted arguments that Facebook has put forward in recent weeks.

The organic spread of political messages online “should not be compromised by money”, he wrote. The advanced state of digital advertising technology, including “machine learning-based optimization of messaging and micro-targeting” and deepfakes – fake or manipulated videos that appear real – combined with the pollution of the online information ecosystem with misinformation, “present entirely new challenges to civic discourse”.

“This isn’t about free expression,” he added, in a seeming riposte to the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s recent defense of online political advertising in a speech billed as a “stand for voice and free expression”. “This is about paying for reach. And paying to increase the reach of political speech has significant ramifications that today’s democratic infrastructure may not be prepared to handle. It’s worth stepping back in order to address.”

Dorsey tweeted another counter-argument to Facebook with an accompanying winking emoji, writing: “It’s not credible for us to say: ‘We’re working hard to stop people from gaming our systems to spread misleading info, but if someone pays us to target and force people to see their political ad…well…they can say whatever they want!’”

That argument appears to mock Facebook’s recent attempts to justify its decisions to exempt posts by politicians from its third-party factchecking program, and ads by politicians from a policy that bans false statements from paid advertisements.

Together, the policies have created a situation in which Facebook is simultaneously asserting its commitment to reducing misinformation while allowing incumbent politicians and political candidates to lie in paid campaign ads.

Dorsey called for “forward-looking political ad regulation”, noting that transparency requirements that have been proposed by US lawmakers are “progress but not enough.”

“The internet provides entirely new capabilities, and regulators need to think past the present day to ensure a level playing field,” he said.

Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, called Twitter’s decision “another attempt by the left to silence Trump and conservatives” while Hillary Clinton called it “the right thing to do for democracy in America and all over the world” and the New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez deemed it “a good call”.

Daniel Kreiss, an associate professor of journalism and media at the University of North Carolina, argued that companies should focus on restricting the use of personal data in ad targeting rather than banning all political ads, which he said “favors incumbents and media appointed elites vis-a-vis challengers”.

J Nathan Matias, an assistant professor of communication at Cornell University, said that the ban could have a number of unintended consequences, including pushing campaigns to use more bots and “hybrid human-software coordination on Twitter”.

“It’s very hard to define ‘political’ things from non-political discourse,” he added. “If their policies are too loose or their enforcement too clumsy, Twitter could do real damage to public health, the uptake of government services and civic life.”

New “Charlie’s Angels” movie directed/produced by pro-abort Elizabeth Banks

Because few in Hollyweird have any original ideas, libtard actress Elizabeth Banks decided to remake “Charlie’s Angels.”

Banks is a full-on Hollyweird progressive:

She advocates for stricter gun control laws (while using gun violence in her new movie).

She supported loser Hillary Clinton for president in 2016. She supported Obama for president in 2012. She also has been infected with TDS.

And, of course, she is pro-abort and “cares very deeply” about Planned Parenthood.

On Tuesday the Center for Reproductive Rights (a global legal advocacy organization that seeks to advance reproductive rights, such as abortion) announced that Banks was their new “Creative Council” chair. From their Instagram:

“It’s official! We are harnessing the power of the creative community to advance reproductive rights as fundamental human rights around the world. Say hello to our Creative Council, chaired by the fearless actor and activist @ElizabethBanks.

“As someone who struggled with fertility issues and made embryos, I think there’s such an interesting dialogue to be had about how abortion care is part of a larger package of reproductive care that is also about creating wonderful families and access to family care,” says Banks.

Other members of the Council include @ajanaomi_king, @BusyPhilipps, @AmyBrenneman, @LisaEdelstein, @yesimsarahjones, @cindi_leive, @openingceremony’s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, and @erikasavage. Welcome aboard!”

Another Hollyweird movie I won’t be seeing.

Hypocrites: November democratic presidential debate to be held in Georgia, home to fetal heartbeat bill they protested

Demorats are nothing if not consistent: Double standards are the only standards they have.

Earlier this year Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed the state’s heartbeat bill which bans abortion after a fetal heartbeat has been detected. The law goes into effect in 2020, unless successfully challenged.

Progressives went ballistic before this bill was signed into law because they love abortion.

Celebrities, corporations and politicians demanded their industry boycott Georgia. Just a few examples of those who called for/suggested a boycott:

B-list celebrities Alyssa Milano and George Takai along with the Writers Guild of America
Actresses/comedians Tiffany Haddish and Kristen Wiig
Disney and Netflix

Georgia House Democrats “condemned” Kemp’s signing of the bill: “The signing of this law ushers in a new era of nightmarish government intrusion into the reproductive rights and medical decision-making of all women in Georgia.:

Even the DNC expressed its concern and stated, “women’s lives are on the line in Georgia.”

They said, “Georgia’s abortion ban is only the latest example of how the Trump administration’s anti-women policies have emboldened legislators across the country to attack women’s access to health care,” the DNC wrote in a press release.

But what do you know…it’s now been announced that the fifth democratic presidential debate will be hosted by the recently opened Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.

I guess sticking to your principles is difficult when you can otherwise support a fellow democrat and his new business in a state that threatens women’s “reproductive rights.”

Baby killers Planned Parenthood to spend $45 million to defeat President Trump

Your tax dollars at work.

From CBS News: Planned Parenthood announced on Wednesday it plans to spend at least $45 million ahead of the 2020 elections, the most it has ever spent during an election cycle. The push comes as abortion rights are under assault across the Midwest and South, with state lawmakers passing abortion bans and restrictions aimed at capturing the attention of the Supreme Court.

The investment intends to fund large-scale grassroots programs and canvassing, digital, television, radio and mail programs in battleground states across the country, according to a press release. Planned Parenthood Votes, the independent expenditure political committee arm of the reproductive health giant, will target nine states in its initial spend, with plans of expanding. Those states are Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

“We know this is a fight we can win,” said Kelley Robinson, executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes, in a statement shared with CBS News on Wednesday. “Americans simply do not support attacks on their reproductive health care and rights — and they are outraged at what Trump and other politicians are doing.”

With a newly conservative Supreme Court, access to abortion has come under fire across the South and Midwest, where state lawmakers have raced to pass laws that ban the procedure in hopes of overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that effectively legalized the procedure.

So far this year, state politicians have introduced 300 bills restricting access to abortion, according to data compiled by the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive health research organization. Twelve states have passed abortion bans, none of which are currently in effect.

Federal judge blocks Georgia’s abortion ban, stopping heartbeat bill from becoming law

Planned Parenthood’s verdict: A “victory” for people.

From Yahoo: A federal judge has temporarily blocked a law in Georgia that would have banned abortions when a fetal heartbeat is detected in the womb.

District Court Judge Steve C. Jones issued a preliminary injunction Tuesday that will stop the law, known as the ‘heartbeat bill,’ from taking effect while the case is argued in court. The bill was signed by Gov. Brian Kemp in May and was set to become law on Jan. 1.

A fetal heartbeat is typically detected at six weeks, which is before many women know they are pregnant.

The heartbeat bill’s exceptions include cases that involve rape or incest when the woman files a police report. It allows for abortions when a fetus is determined not to be viable or the mother’s health is in jeopardy.

The current Georgia law allows abortions up to the 20th week of pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood Southeast was joined by Sistersong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, Feminist Women’s Health Center and a number of patients and doctors in filing the legal challenge.

Staci Fox, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood Southeast, said the decision was a “victory for the people of Georgia and the entire nation.”

“To the countless Georgians who spoke out against this ban and were ignored, we promised to keep fighting every step of the way and we have,” Fox said in a statement. “To our partners, we promised we were in this together and we are. To Governor Kemp, we promised to see you in court, and we did. But most importantly, to our patients, we promised to protect access to safe, legal abortion and together we have.”

Kemp’s office said Tuesday that it was still reviewing the court ruling.

“Despite today’s outcome, we remain confident in our position,” said Candice Broce, a spokeswoman for Kemp. “We will continue to fight for the unborn and work to ensure that all Georgians have the opportunity to live, grow, and prosper.”

Georgia was one of seven states, along with Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Ohio to pass similar abortion bans this year. The laws have been challenged or already blocked in each state.

“The court recognized today that this law is blatantly unconstitutional and a clear attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade,” said Emily Nestler, senior staff attorney at the Center for Reproductive Rights. “Instead of passing laws that restrict the rights of pregnant women, Georgia lawmakers should be implementing policies that help pregnant women.”

Nestler added that Georgia has the worst maternal mortality rate in the country.

Republican lawmakers say they are passing abortion bans with hopes that at least one challenge will escalate to the Supreme Court and overturn Roe v. Wade.

Kemp said earlier this year that the abortion ban was meant to “protect the innocent” and “champion the vulnerable.”

Demonic: Abortion activists try to burn down Mexico City cathedral

David Ramos reports for Catholic News Agency (CNA) that on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019, “abortion rights activists” tried to burn down the Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral.

But faithful lay Catholics protected the cathedral by gathering before the church’s front doors.

Mauricio Alfonso Guitar, deputy head of the Cristera National Guard in Mexico City, told CNA’s Spanish language sister agency ACI Prensa that “thanks to the denunciations in Catholics’ social networks, offering to defend the churches, the government … sent police to defend them.”

ACI Prensa reported that firefighters acted quickly to prevent the fire from spreading, and police acted to prevent further acts of aggression by the “abortion rights activists”.

One would have to be demonically possessed to be so hell-bent on the “right” to kill unborn babies.

Indeed, in May 2015, inside the Cathedral of San Luis Potosía in the city of San Luis Potosi, a group of bishops performed an exorcism on the entire country of Mexico.

Clearly, the exorcism failed.

As reported by LifeSiteNews, Cardinal Juan Sandoval, Bishop Emeritus from Gualajara, who led the exorcism, said, “Mexico opened the door to the devil when we legalized abortion. It’s the legalization of homicide.”

Journalist Roberto O’Farril who witnessed the exorcism, compared abortion to the sacrifices performed by the Aztecs. H said: “Many of those sacrifices were human sacrificies. Young warriors and damsels whose chests were cut open to take out the heart and offer it to these demons. Mexico is living a demonic infestation similar to the one these territories lived before the evangelization and before Our Lady of Guadalupe’s apparition.”

According to a 2015 study by the pro-abort Guttmacher Institute, Mexico has one of the highest abortion rates in the world, with 33 in every 1,000 pregnancies ending in abortion.

3 recent victories in America’s Culture War: abortion, conversion therapy, Drag Queen Story Hour

Although the overall trend is that the Right have lost the culture war, we do have three recent victories.

Those three wins as reported by Dr. Michael Brown for The Christian Post, Sept. 20, 2019, are:

(1) The number and rate of abortions in America have dropped to their lowest levels since 1973:

The Associated Press reports that according to a Sept. 18, 2019 report from the Guttmacher Institute, a research group that supports abortion rights, the number and rate of abortions across the United States have plunged to their lowest levels since 1973 when the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade legalized abortion nationwide:

  • The number of abortions have steadily decreased from the peak of 1.6 million in 1990, to a little more than 1 million in 2011, to 926,000 in 2014, to 862,000 abortions in 2017.
  • The rate of abortions in 2017 declined to 13.5 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44 — the lowest rate since 1973, and less than half what it was in 1990.

Admittedly, some of the decline is due to increased use of contraception and lower fertility rates, with women having fewer children in general. Still, the decline in the number and rate of abortions is also due to a recognition of the wrongness of abortion.

2) New York City has decided to drop an oppressive ban on so-called conversion therapy:

Tyler O’Neil reports for PJ Media on Sept. 16, 2019, that NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson announced that because of a legal challenge from Orthodox Jewish psychologist Dr. David Schwartz, the city will act swiftly to repeal a 2017 law forbidding therapists from charging clients for “services intended to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.” Therapists who violated the law would be fined $1,000 per violation.

Johnson, who is homosexual, said: “Obviously I didn’t want to repeal this. I don’t want to be someone who is giving in to these right-wing groups. But the Supreme Court has become conservative; the Second Circuit, which oversees New York, has become more conservative. We think this is the most responsible, prudent course.”

3) Some cities are canceling “Drag Queen Story Hours” in local libraries:

Recall that last year, the American Library Association approved “Drag Queen Story Hour” in public libraries for children as young as 3. Below is one of the drag queens (source: Mass Resistance).

On Sept. 8, 2019, the South Bay Pentecostal Church in Chula Vista, CA, was vandalized for opposing “Drag Queen Story Hour” in the local public library. That Sunday morning, church goers were greeted by satanic graffiti on the church door.  (Source: Mass Resistance)

Some cities, however, are canceling “Drag Queen Story Hours” because of parental protests.

One of them is Leander, Texas.

As reported by Mass Resistance, a pro-family activist organization, on August 15, 2019, Leander’s City Council voted 5-2 to stop renting out their public library meeting rooms to outside organizations, and voted 6-1 to require background checks for guest presenters for programs in the library involving children 17 and younger. By all accounts, these policy changes will completely stop the “Drag Queen Story Hour” events in Leander’s public library.

Please donate to Mass Resistance, a pro-family activist organization that is fighting on the front lines of America’s culture war. I donated. Go here to donate.
