Feminism and Satanism: #MeToo movement inspires voodoo New York fashion show

Though the stuff of Hollywood knowledge for decades, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuse of women did not become public news until October 2017.

That news, in turn, opened the floodgates, followed by accusations of sexual misconduct against other Hollyweirdos — producers, directors and actors — as well as men in other industries, including the media.

In response, a “Me Too” movement (hashtag #MeToo) spread virally on social media against the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment of women in the workplace. The movement went beyond social media to include in-person protests, as well as spawn the Time’s Up movement to help fight sexual violence and harassment in the workplace through lobbying and providing funding for victims to get legal help if they can’t afford it.

All well and good.

But what does #MeToo have to do with Sports Illustrated magazine posing women naked, or with satanic voodooism?

Associating #MeToo with voodoo was exactly what the New York Fashion Week (NYFW) did, by featuring a creepy voodoo-themed fashion show claiming to be inspired by the #MeToo movement.

On the first night of NYFW on February 8, 2018, fashion designers Lamine Kouyate (of XULY.Bët), Mimi Prober and Hogan McLaughin combined their shows as a “paean to two voodoo spirits demons, Ezili Dantor and Ezili Freda” who are said to represent “perfect femininity”.

XULY.Bët designer Lamine Kouyate, who hails from the African country of Mali, said the fashion show was inspired partly by the #MeToo movement and anger over President Trump’s alleged “s—hole countries” remark.

The fashion show included:

  • A voodoo priestess, Sallie Ann Glassman, who was flown in from New Orleans.
  • A group of Haitian voodoo drummers, led by Atibon Legba.
  • TV personality and amateur witch Kelly Cutrone, founder of People’s Revolution, a group described by Cutrone as an assembly of “pagans, Jews, witches and voodoo practitioners trying to do something for feminism and the retail business.”
  • A machete, supposedly wielded by the spirit demon Ezili Dantor.

Paul Bois of The Daily Wire points out that contemporary feminism has “strong ties” to witchcraft, i.e., satanism.

According to Laurie Penny at The Baffler, the number of feminist witches has been steadily rising since the 1960s to an apex in the Trump era. Since day one of his administration, witches have performed a variety of spells and hexes to “bind” the president from implementing policies that defund baby-killing Planned Parenthood.

See “Crisis actors dressed up like witches put hex on President Trump in California park”; “Demonic Left’s curses on Trump backfired”; “2016 presidential election was a spiritual war, and it’s ongoing”.

Why do contemporary feminists identify with Satanism?

The answer: Abortion, the common nexus of contemporary feminism and satanists.

See “’I’m a millionaire because I had an abortion’: Abortion and Moloch”.

 

According to Market Watch, “interest in spirituality has been booming in recent years while interest in religion plummets, especially among millennials.” Millennials are replacing traditional religions with witchcraft, astrology, aura reading, mediumship, tarot-card reading, and palmistry — practices that Christianity views as demonic. Adherents to these practices grew 2% between 2011 and 2016, creating an industry that is now worth $2 billion annually.

Sarah Silverman: I want to eat an aborted fetus

Corrine Weaver reports for NewsBusters that on February 1, 2018, in a pro-abort fundraising telethon, unfunny comedienne Sarah Silverman, 47, said that a conscience clause law preventing aborted fetuses from being used in manufactured food products “would make her want to eat an aborted fetus.”

The live-streamed fundraiser telethon, “Life Is a Living Nightmare: A Telethon to Fix It,” was held by the Lady Parts Justice League, founded by Lizz Winstead, 56, a co-creator of The Daily Show. Co-hosted by Winstead and Silverman, the telethon featured four hours of political rants, an interview with abortionist Willie Parker, and “shitty law” abortion charades introduced by a woman wearing a vagina costume.

Two of the “shitty” conscience laws were acted out in charades by volunteers:

(1) An Oklahoma law, in response to a food lab considering using human stem cells to create artificial food flavoring, bans the use of aborted fetuses as ingredients in the manufacture of food products. In the telethon charade on this “shitty” law,  a volunteer yelled “kill the baby!”. Winstead said about the law: “This is fucking batshit. A lot of times they will create laws to make you think that this is some epidemic that needs to be addressed.” Silverman said: “If anything has ever made me want to eat an aborted fetus, it’s this law.”

Here’s a clip from the telethon, at the end of which you’ll see and hear Silverman say those words:

(2) A law requiring abortion clinics to cremate or bury every aborted fetus. Silverman said: “Fucking funerals for fucking aborted fetuses? I would like to speak at those funerals. He lived the way he died. He died the way he lived. The size of a sesame seed with no discerning brain function.”

This is what Silverman said about conscience clause laws and religious freedom:

Religious freedom used to be such a beautiful thing cuz it was like this big inclusive thing in the country, and now it’s just this shroud to legalize hate and shit like that.”

Another rabid pro-abort, Star Wars actor Mark Hamill — who said you’re insane if you don’t vote for Obama — was also present at the telethon, where he created two pieces of “art” to be auctioned off. Hamill also donated and auctioned a Disney Last Jedi poster, promising to personalize the poster by writing “something obscene and dirty if you want.”

Disney must be so proud.

Winstead chimed in, laughing: “Mark Hamill is actually going to become an abortion provider! He’ll give you an abortion with a Jedi wand! It’s going to be awesome!”

Towards the end of the telethon, Winstead cried as she extolled abortion providers baby-killers as heroic people who “provide this amazing care for people . . . [who] used it [abortion] to become better people”.

Hell just froze over: CA judge rules in favor of Christian baker who refused to bake wedding cake for lesbians

In October 2017, two lesbians, Eileen and Mireya Rodriquez-Del Rio, sought to buy a wedding cake from Tastries Bakery in Bakersfield, CA, for their upcoming same-sex marriage.

Mireya and Eileen Rodriquez-Del Rio

The owner of the bakery, Cathy Miller, said she must decline “because she does not condone same-sex marriage,” but that she would send their order to another bakery, Gimme Some Sugar.

The lesbians filed a complaint before California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), which sided with the lesbian couple and ordered Miller to provide the cake on the grounds that:

  • Miller had violated California’s Unruh Civil Rights Act, which bars discrimination in public accommodations, in this case the baking and selling of a cake.
  • Miller is not protected by the First Amendment, which protects only “those occasions where government requires a speaker to disseminate another’s message”.

Source: Washington Post

On February 5, 2018, California Superior Court Judge David R. Lampe ruled in favor of Cathy Miller. Judge Lampe wrote in his decision:

“The State of California brings this action under the Unruh Civil Rights Act, Civil Code section 51, against defendants Cathy’s Creations, Inc. and Cathy Miller. Miller refuses to design and create wedding cakes to be used in the celebration of same sex marriages. She
believes that such marriages violate her deeply held religious convictions. The State seeks to enjoin this conduct as unlawfully discriminatory. The State brings the action upon the administrative complaint of a same-sex married couple, complainants Rodriquez-Del Rios.
The State cannot succeed on the facts presented as a matter of law. The right to freedom of speech under the First Amendment outweighs the State’s interest in ensuring a freely accessible marketplace.
The right of freedom of thought guaranteed by the First Amendment includes the right to speak, and the right to refrain from speaking. Sometimes the most  profound protest is silence. […]
The State’s purpose to ensure an accessible public marketplace free from discrimination is a laudable and necessary public goal. […] No artist, having placed their work for public sale, may refuse to sell for an unlawful discriminatory purpose. No baker may place their wares in a public display case, open their shop, and then refuse to sell because of race, religion, gender, or gender identification.

The difference here is that the cake in question is not yet baked. The State is not petitioning the court to order defendants to sell a cake. The State asks this court to compel Miller to use her talents to design and create a cake she has not yet conceived with the knowledge that her work will be displayed in celebration of a marital union her religion forbids. For this court to force such compliance would do violence to the essentials of Free Speech guaranteed under the First Amendment. […]

Such an order would be the stuff of tyranny. Both sides advocate with strong and heartfelt beliefs, and this court has a duty to ensure that all are given the freedom to speak them. The government must remain neutral in the marketplace of ideas.1

No matter how the court should rule, one side or the other may be visited with some degree of hurt, insult, and indignity. The court finds that any harm here is equal to either complainants or defendant Miller, one way or the other. If anything, the harm to Miller is the greater harm, because it carries significant economic consequences. When one feels injured, insulted, or angered by the words or expressive conduct of others, the harm is many times self—inflicted. The most effective Free Speech in the family of our nation is when we speak and listen with respect. In any case, the court cannot guarantee that no one will be harmed when the law is enforced. Quite the contrary, when the law is enforced, someone necessarily loses. Nevertheless, the court’s duty is to the law. Whenever anyone exercises the right of Free Speech, someone else may be angered or hurt. This is the nature of a free society under our Constitution.

Judge David Lampe’s ruling will be a precedent for the U.S. Supreme Court to consider in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, wherein Colorado baker Jack C. Phillips argues that the First Amendment’s free speech and free exercise of religion clauses give him the right to refuse wedding services to a same-sex couple, despite public accommodations laws that require businesses that are open to the public to treat all potential customers equally.

Phillips has the support of the Trump administration, marking the first time the U.S. government has argued for an exemption to an anti-discrimination law.

David R. Lampe, who has a J.D. from Santa Clara University School of Law, was appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) in June 2007 to the Superior Court of Kern County, California.

God bless Judge Lampe!

Brad Pitt in 2011: ‘I made a pact with the Devil’

On September 9, 2011, at the Toronto International Film Festival, Brad Pitt and his co-stars (Chris Pratt, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jonah Hill) met with journalists to publicize the movie Moneyball.

As reported by Huffington Post, Pitt said with a straight face:

“I related it more to my upbringing, I grew up in a very Christian environment — a very healthy environment and a loving a family — but there were parameters that I didn’t understand, that I questioned it, and it took me until my adult years until I could really try new things… That was satanism, it works really well, I made a pact and the movie came out, so… No, you’re really dealing with certain things as you grow up and you’ve got to try things on for yourself and really figure out what works for you and what doesn’t. I just relate to that time, it’s a very personal time, it’s a comfort system and you cut the tether and find yourself very on your own with nothing to hold on to.”

The audience laughed. But you can see for yourself in the video clip below that Pitt wasn’t joking. Look at his eyes.

It now “makes sense” that, posing for the New York Times, Brad Pitt made the 666 sign with his hand.

See “Brad Pitt gets deep on Trump and Brexit; makes 666 hand sign

As explained in the article, “Top Ten Illuminati Signs“:

The sign is made by touching your thumb with your index finger making a circle. The other fingers follow the index’s shape thus forming the tail of two 6s…. The sign is given as a pledge of allegiance to Satan. When it is given over the eye, it represents the eye of Lucifer.

Shun the satanic ice cream ‘Sweet Jesus’

I’ve said this before:

Evil no longer hides in the shadows. It has become emboldened and “in your face”.

There’s a Canadian ice cream brand, Sweet Jesus, that you must shun.

It’s an ice cream from Hell.

With sleek stylish ads, “Sweet Jesus” Ice Cream has enjoyed widespread success in their many shops in Canada and the U.S. But it is blasphemous and utterly satanic, shown by the upside-down cross and the lightning bolt in its logo:

The lightning bolt, at a minimum, is a pagan symbol, signifying Zeus or Jupiter. John Namnik points out that:

The symbol of the lightning bolt is also prevalent in satanism. It most likely originates from the Bible passage where Jesus said: “I saw Satan falling like lightning from heaven”.

Note the skull (a symbol of death) in the “Sweet Jesus” ad below:

The ice cream’s ads feature devilish children, including a vampirish girl with an adult woman’s coiffed hair and eye makeup:

Other ads openly mock Jesus Christ:

The ads are the creation of Murilo Maciel, a graphic designer in Toronto. Maciel is a Jewish (Ashkenazi) surname.

Murilo Maciel makes his allegiance clear in another of his designs:

Founded in Toronto, “Sweet Jesus” Ice Cream has 19 stores in Canada, and 2 stores in the U.S. — in Baltimore Airport and Mall of America, MN. It is also finalizing deals in Florida and Hawaii. Overseas, it will be opening soon in Dubai, India and Bangladesh under the trade name Sweet Salvation.

The parent company is Monarch & Misfits, of Toronto, Canada. Its bare-bones website gives out little information other than:

  • It owns 4 restaurant chains: Sweet Jesus, La Carnita, Home of the Brave, and Good Fortune.
  • A contact person for franchise inquiries named Jeff Young.

Mario Toneguzzi reports for Retail Insider, October 5, 2017, that “Hand-crafted ice cream brand Sweet Jesus . . . has huge plans for expansion across the country and around the world.” Jeff Young, chief development officer of parent company Monarchs & Misfits, said:

“Our development strategy is to target super-regional enclosed shopping centres and very selective high street storefront locations. Over the next 12 to 18 months, we’ll probably open another 20-25 units. I think it’s successful for a number of reasons. The branding is absolutely on point. Everything from the name, the design package, the colour. The product itself is sensational in terms of product quality and flavour. And most importantly it really resonates with the Millennials who are not only social media savvy but real foodies. We have now garnered more than 109,000 loyal Instagram followers. It’s probably the most Instagramed food in all of Canada…. As one of Canada’s fastest growing franchise brands, we have many new locations under development.

For such a booming restaurant chain, it is curious that there is no entry in Wikipedia for either Sweet Jesus Ice Cream or its parent company, Monarch & Misfits. Nor could I find any information on their owners.

Bride-to-be publicly whipped in Indonesia for getting too close to boyfriend days before wedding

sharia law woman whipped

Islam’s Sharia Law: The real war on women

And the Women’s March participants complain of “oppression” and “denial of humanity.”

Such drama queens.

From Daily Mirror: A woman and her partner were publicly whipped for getting “too close” to each other just days before their wedding. The shocking public punishment took place in Aceh, Indonesia.

Closeness is seen as a step towards pre-marital sex which is against Sharia Law and as a result the couple each received 20 lashes, in front of gathering crowds. The pair were among a group which were brought forward for public punishment on a makeshift stage outside a mosque on Friday.

An Indonesian Christian was also whipped for selling alcohol in the conservative province of Aceh.

Islamic law also forbids selling and consuming alcohol and Jono Simbolon was arrested in October and sentenced to 36 lashings. As a masked officer whipped his back with a rattan stick the man could be seen grimacing in pain in front of the jeering crowd.

After 10 of the lashings a doctor was brought in to check on Simbolon – but he gave the go-ahead for the whipping to continue.

Simbolon is the third non-Muslim to endure a public whipping since Aceh began implementing Islamic law in 2001 – the only province in Indonesia to do so.

Banda Aceh mayor Aminullah Usman said: “This is our government’s commitment to enforcing Islamic law. If there is a violation immediately report it to the Sharia police and we will carry out a punishment like today’s caning.”

About 98% of Aceh’s five million residents are Muslims and are subject to the Sharia law. People are flogged for a range of offences including gambling, drinking alcohol, gay sex or any sexual relationship outside of marriage.

Sunday Devotional: Making fishers of men in a time of declining church attendance

Mark 1:14-20

After John had been arrested,
Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God:
“This is the time of fulfillment.
The kingdom of God is at hand.
Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

As he passed by the Sea of Galilee,
he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea;
they were fishermen.
Jesus said to them,
“Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
Then they abandoned their nets and followed him.
He walked along a little farther
and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John.
They too were in a boat mending their nets.
Then he called them.
So they left their father Zebedee in the boat
along with the hired men and followed him.

There are so many things left unsaid and unexplained in the Gospel accounts of Christ: Why are there no descriptions of what our Lord looked like? Why are the accounts of His childhood so sparse? The child Jesus’ life must have been fraught with danger, for surely King Herod did not stop trying to kill the remarkable infant who had inspired the three Magis to journey from afar with precious gifts for the baby born in a humble manger. And why was Jesus’ public ministry so brief, lasting but three years?

Knowing His time would be brief, Jesus began His public ministry by gathering a small group of followers — the Apostles — whom He deputized to be “fishers of men” who would continue His ministry and spread His word far and wide.

Though most of us are not priests, ministers and preachers, as believers we each had heeded His call and, as followers of Christ, are asked to spread the good word (which is what “gospel” means).

Our task is all the more urgent because the Light of Christ is dimming in America, one of the more religious countries in the world.

In a report for Breitbart, Jan. 3, 2018, Dr. Thomas D. Williams alerts us to a 2015 study by the Pew Research Center, which found that:

  • The United States has experienced an alarming dip in Christian religiosity over the last decade, whereas Islam, Hinduism, and “other religions” show no decline.
  • Mainline Christianity and Catholicism have fallen 3.4% and 3.1%, respectively.

While there are Christians who reject and dismiss organized Christianity, arguing that faith alone is suffice, without need of attending and belonging to a church, the plain fact is that we have decades of data that regular church attendance confers beneficial effects on both individuals and society. As John Stonestreet, president of the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, put it, the advantages of regular religious practice are so well documented that people would be foolish not to consider them.

Personal and societal benefits of regular church attendance include:

(1) A longer and healthier life: Religious people live longer than the non-religious by 2 to 3 years. One reason is that religion encourages a healthier lifestyle: Compared to non-churchgoers, regular churchgoers tend to drink, smoke and use recreational drugs less, and are also less likely to be sexually promiscuous.

(2) Psychological well being: Regular church attendance strengthens social ties and create communities where people take care of one another. A study of 15,738 Americans between the ages of 18 and 60 by the Austin Institute for the Study of Family and Culture, found that:

  • People who attend religious services on a weekly basis are happier: They are nearly twice as likely (45%) to describe themselves as “very happy”  than people who never attend (28%).
  • Conversely, those who never worship are twice as likely to say they are “very unhappy” (4%) as those who attend services weekly (2%).
  • Higher levels of church attendance predict greater life satisfaction.
  • Not just church attendance, but self-reported “religiosity” and religious “affiliation” are also linked with happiness levels.

(3) Children who are high-achieving, social, and well adjusted. According to sociologist Robert Putnam in his book, Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis:

  • A child whose parents attend church regularly is 40% to 50% more likely to go on to college than a matched child of non-attenders.
  • Children involved in a religious organization take tougher courses, get higher grades and test scores, and are less likely to drop out of high school — which means they also have better employment prospects.
  • Religious youth have better relations with their parents and other adults, more friendships with high-performing peers, and are more involved in sports and other extracurricular activities.

(4) It goes without saying that America as a society reaps benefits from healthy, happy, high-achieving and social individuals. A recent study by Brian and Melissa Grim of Georgetown University and the Newseum Institute, even placed a dollar value on the benefits of regular church attendance. The study concluded that the “value of the services provided by religious organizations and the impact religion has on a number of important American businesses” totals $1.2 trillion.

One troubling aspect of regular church attendance is an increasing class gap or division:

  • Contrary to a commonly held belief that irreligiosity tends to rise with education and income, regular church attendance among college-educated families has remained more or less the same since the late 1970s, but has fallen by almost a third among families with a high school diploma or less. According to Putnam, this disparity has created “a substantial class gap” that did not exist 50 years ago.
  • Statistics from the Pew Center’s comprehensive 2015 report on religion in America confirmed that most religious “nones” tend to be:
    • Less educated: only a small portion have a college degree; 45% have a high school diploma or less.
    • Poorer: earn less than $30,000 a year,
    • White males.

And so, with Matthew 4:19’s injunction of making fishers of men in mind, how do we spread the good word in our time of declining faith and church attendance, in a culture of increasing hostility and enmity toward Christianity and Christians?

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