This was a rather puzzling thing to read on the Christian Post.
Look, I will hold my hand up here, I am a master of the rambly ginormous post. But this one isn’t going anywhere. Or if it is? I don’t want to go there.
The idea of re-education for the socially inept is not new. China, Russia, North Korea and Vietnam are a few countries that interred people into camps or re-education centers to forcibly change their way of thinking. Some of these counties do so to this day.
North Vietnam employed highly sophisticated means of coercion such as torture, deprivation and abuse. Hundreds of thousands died in those camps after the fall of Saigon and some people spent as much as 17 years in the re-ed centers.
In Vietnam. You were kind of the baddies. You kind of showed up to Vietnam and fucked about killing around 800,000 people for no reason apart from an imperialistic drive to stop “communism”. You also blew up Cambodia.
Stop bringing it up, you seem to live in a completely oblivious world where you think none of us have history books.
The Rest of the World
We don’t have anything resembling the re-ed camps of Vietnam, but the seeds have been planted by the homo-fascists as seen in recent events in the wide world of sports.
Homo-Facists? Again, that history thing? Seems like we have history books but America does not. Homosexuals were one of the worst things to be during major fascist rules. Possibly because they are a nice easy target to scare monger, hate and generally kick about.
Eww! They like men! Quick! Affirm our heterosexuality by beating them up!
We have already witnessed the attacks on Mozilla’s CEO Brendan Eich, AE Duck Dynasty stars, Twin brothers Jason and David Benham and others, but the biggest mind bender of them all is at the top of the news as Miami Dolphin’s safety Don Jones was fined and suspended temporarily until he completes education training to bring his views into line with full acceptance of the LGBT agenda.
What was Jones’ violation, what infraction of the NFL’s rules had he made?
He tweeted his personal disgust with the big kiss between the NFL’s newly drafted Michael Sam and his gay lover.
Oh no! Heaven forbid sports players who are widely considered to be role models for children are tasked with a modicum of taste and decency.
See here is the thing? No one cared about countless straight guys crying and kissing their girlfriends. No one cared really about who Michael Sam kisses as long as it is human and an adult capable of decisions. Michael Sam did not french his dog. Michael Sam did not snog a minor. Michael Sam kissed an adult. Who the fuck made you the kissing police?
By any other name this is still what we call “re-education” – is this America, or have I fallen asleep only to wake up in a different part of the world?
Have all the NFL’s rules to curb celebrations after touchdowns become moot? What will we see now, players kissing in the end zone?
Writer Bryan Fischer says the NFL’s punishment of Jones is the equivalent of a lobotomy!
That is rather nice.
So will you be standing up and defending Donald Sterling? Who I am told is very very racist. After all? Homophobia is just as bad as racism and if you think that such re-education is the equivalent of a lobotomy, then surely Donald Sterling’s equivalent is just as bad if not worse.
Said Fischer, “Dolphins safety Don Jones has already – already! – been fined by the NFL and sent to reeducation camp for sending out critical Tweets of Sam’s sloppy wet kiss for his gay lover, the photo of which was plastered all over the top of Drudge on Sunday. Jones won’t be allowed to return to the team until his lobotomy is complete.”
To Mr. Fischer and indeed Bresciani I will admit. Such is a re-education camp. And let us assume that homophobia is a divinely ordained stance. That you are blessed if you hate people like Freddie Mercury, Elton John, Tchaikovsky or Alan Turing. That makes you right and good. And that changing any view point through forcible re-education and shaming and distress is considered bad. Imagine a class where you are simply taught to not be such a homophobe which you join of your own free will (and indeed if Don Jones is truly biblical he would adhere to his principles as Wealth will keep heaven from him as Jesus pointed out when he explained about Camels and Eyes of Needles) and if that is a lobotomy…
Then what is one of those troubled teen camps where you force your children to do back breaking labour, sleep in terrible conditions and pray away the gay. If a voluntary class (and it is voluntary, unless you are suggesting that acquisition of wealth is a Christian Ideal) class is a lobotomy then what you have here is something far far worse.
Have we Become Judges of Evil Thoughts?
The Apostle James scolded the first century Christians for giving preferential treatment to the rich that may have ventured into their churches. Since the church then was made up of largely very poor people, the rich were definitely a minority, and they were generally disdained by poor Jewry.
Tergiversation began in the first century church, but is prophesied to become an epidemic in the church of the last days. (2th 2:3) If this behavior was seen 20 centuries ago what can we expect today?
Showing preference to the minority we now call the “gays” is no different than accepting the rich was in James day. It is succumbing to the dreaded state of becoming judges of “evil thoughts.”
James addressed this condition by saying, “Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?” (Jas 2: 4)
Yes. We are judges of Evil Thought. We are better judges of evil thought than the BIble. We have created utopia not by blind adherence to the works of 2000 year old shepherds but through progress. By analysing cause and effect and judging how an action affects society as a whole.
It is why we don’t try people by ordeal any more. It is why we have a judiciary, it is why we have lawyers and judges.
It is the difference between our judiciary and Shariah. What Bresciani wants is Levite Law. The equivalent of Shariah.
No minority can be discriminated against according to the Constitution but no minority can circumvent or dismiss the will of “we the people.” Is it time to let the LGBT know this in no uncertain terms. Most of the people in this nation still view homosexuality as a perverse and un-natural lifestyle. We do not need to apologize for this position and we also should refuse to be punished in any way shape or form for our views.
We are judges of evil thoughts when we think rejection of a perverted pop-culture trend is reason to punish those who disagree with it.
We wear pants and fly through the air in an aluminium tube powered by burning dead animals that lived millions of years ago. Frankly cars are unnatural. You can’t claim homosexuality as unnatural when we see it in nature while happily wearing shoes and typing on the Internet. You come off as a bit of a hypocrite and Jesus hates those too.
Vlad the Impaler and Obama the Enabler
While Vlad was a murderer in real life who impaled his enemies on stakes, he became a legend after death. Millions have been thrilled by the stories of Count Dracula made popular by novelist Bram Stoker. Most great evil figures are not so lucky. Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin and others are known today mostly for their acts of barbarism and genocide.
Vlad the Impaler had a relatively “nice” story because the people he impaled were “Turks” and he was lionised by the Roman Catholic Church. It is rather “stupid” to no know anything about Vlad III especially if he was on your side.
History may not be so kind to Barack Obama. He is a gay enabler who with a few well-chosen words has dismissed mostly the entire bible except the Sermon on the Mount and has abandoned civilizations longest standing sanctified, God given ordinance – the marriage of one man and one woman.
So Barack Obama is on the same league of gay enabling as Hitler.
Dear Christian Post. Can you ensure your writers work in well ventilated rooms that haven’t been recently painted.
If there is one place in the world I wish Americans to go see it is Europe. In particular two Concentration Camps. One in Poland that is infamous. Auschwitz, to see what evil man is capable of when he embraces bigotry without question.
And the other? Terezin. Because Auschwitz was evil in a scale we can understand. Terezin was evil in a way that is astonishing. The true mark of evil is knowing that what you are doing is wrong but still doing it anyways. Terezin was created as a place to show a model “concentration camp”. It was bright, sunny, the Jews could work. It was where the early Red Cross videos took place. After a while though? The Jewish people were moved on. To places like Treblinka and Auschwitz where they never came back.
Terezin was where the parents of one of the men I hold to a high standard died. The man’s name was Professor Jan Weiner. And the man was a Czech Legend. I got to see Terezin with him. It was where his parents died. It was where he said enough was enough and didn’t choose to commit suicide, but instead escaped.
And what he taught me was acceptance. Of all that blind hate and ideological venom that found its way into the hearts of many Germans who sought scapegoats. And as always it was Jews, Disabled and Homosexuals who took the brunt of it.
We learnt a different story than the demons of the Nazis. Reinhard Heydrich initially tried to get Jews out of the Czech Republic. Gave them passports and encouraged them to “fuck off”. Not out of kindness, but out of the same dialogue of the BNP. We will offer you a chance to leave. If you don’t? Well then…
The day he wanted his passport he was told by the Czech person in charge to go home and change and come back tomorrow. The next day the office was closed. The next day, Weiner was arrested and sent to Terezin along with his parents who committed suicide there.
When Weiner came back the first thing he did was show up to this man’s house with his service pistol. I remember him telliing me how angry he was. He blamed everything on this one man. This one petty and hateful man who was cowering under a table.
Jan Weiner did not shoot that man, because he saw himself becoming like him. This man’s doom was to live knowing what he did and knowing he played a part in the deaths of millions.
Jan took me to Terezin where his mother died. We even stood in his old room and he showed me the infirmary.
I was taught by survivors of the Holocaust and if you stand in front of this horror and see the absolute beauty of things produced even in this hell such as Music and Art and Songs and Plays and Dances, you will really understand what it means to be human. Because what it means to be human is to be capable of doing the terrible things like the Nazis. It is also being capable of doing the amazing things like the people in these camps. And there were stories. So many stories of little kindnesses. Of one unnamed German soldier who would smuggle in medicines. Of one soldier who would “shoot” Jews and tell them to pretend to die. He would do this at night. By day time there would be a fresh grave with no dead body. Who is going to dig up unmarked graves? There were people who gave up their food so that children could eat. There were doctors who traded their skills for more luxuries for the entire camp.
The men who gassed Jews were just as human as the Jews and Gypsies and other victims of the Holocaust and we would do well to remember that. Because we can understand the sort of mind that takes to be one and not be the other.
What it means to be human is to not try and associate Obama with the people who gave us the Pink Triangle.
What will we put in his presidential library? If someday his real birth certificate is found and a release of his school transcripts is made, they may be on display, but who will come to the library other than a few democrats and liberals and those of the LGBT persuasion? Will a West Virginia coal miner darken the door or someone who lost their health coverage and their trusted doctor?
This is just a vomitting of right wing tropes.
Being the most active and highest ranking politician in history to wholeheartedly support abortions it is not impossible to imagine a presidential library haunted by the ghosts of millions of aborted children. They were impaled and worse on the scalpels and devices of doctors no less terrible than Vlad the Impaler.
Aww! I am like Vlad the Impaler!
And Pro-Life too! Instead we should go back to the days of coat hanger abortions, letting mothers die and starving children as well as an entrenchment of poverty.
Barack Obama has appointed activist judges, refused to defend DOMA, and in general has made great strides in popularizing the perverted in America. He is both an enabler and a child of error according to the scriptures that he has dismissed.
You are foaming a bit there mate.
So you are angry because Judges are changing America and you are no longer allowed to be arseholes to people you don’t like and get away with it. You also are worried that somehow your straight marriage is going to get ruined because a gay guy gets to use the word “marriage”. As for popularising the perverted?
Here is the thing? I am pretty sexually liberal and adventurous. And I don’t spend this much time thinking about sex.
Also? A child of error? Are you implying that he is a bastard or are you implying that black and white people shouldn’t have kids? I just wanted to know what your bigotry is so that I can make the appropriate joke.
If it is the former then we should send him to the Wall in the North. If it is the latter? Then clearly he is some sort of abnormal mutant and should be sent to the sewers to learn how to be a Ninja from a giant rat.
But why even mention it – what is the point?
The simple truth is that mentioning it – is the point.
Preaching or proclaiming the truths of the unchangeable God is a calling and a privilege rarely understood.
Really? From here it just looks like you are being a bigot.
As a young man I had the good fortune of sitting under the ministry of Dr Richard Land, now the President of Southern Evangelical Seminary. Richard always made it known to us that while he loved involvement in politics; he thought his calling as a preacher was a much higher calling than merely being the President of the United States.
A president is an administrator who may infuse his own biases and personal agenda into his office, but a preacher (a true preacher) is a servant who can only represent the revealed will and counsel of God in an ever changing and increasingly reprobate world.
It is funny how these revealed will and counsel of god (and I insist on the small g. Can’t call Shiva imaginary and claim your Jehovah exists since that foundation is about as strong as cotton candy) seems to change according to the mores and customs of the day. Something tells me Richard Land is not encouraging the ownership of slaves as a strong point.
Richard Land is kind of a racist. Observe.
“A Black Man is statistically more likely to do you harm than a white man.”
Oooh… I think you need a better role model. One that’s less “Anti-Jan Weiner”
Calling out the deep spiritual error and denial or corruption of the scriptural message regarding homosexuality is part of that calling. It is a hard message to get out and while it goes against the trends of the day, it is the pure love of God actively sent to pull some back from their own destruction.
Unless you are black. In which case you can fuck yourself.
- Richard Land.
Gays and the Cotton Candy Jesus
Not a week passes without someone emailing me or conjuring up a blog response somewhere about how the sweet and loving Jesus would never condemn anyone. Beside the “we are born this way” argument I suppose I have heard every contention ever voiced to defend a lifestyle that the Bible clearly calls an abomination.
God is painted as a wishy washy doting old grandfather in the sky who may have once thought it was perverted, but in these days has learned better. Jesus is viewed as the cotton candy, bleeding heart of lovey-dovey fairyland.
What would Jesus shoot a homosexual with?
Here is the reality. The same Jesus who said he would return at the close of time to judge the quick and the dead, (2 Ti 4: 1) is also the one who stands to declare these dreadful words.
“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.” (Mt 25:41)
The irony is Bresciani probably thinks he is one of those blessed meek who will inherit the earth.
After burning everyone else to death. Remember, no villain things he is bad. Remember the Boko Haram? In their twisted view of the world, they are the guardians of morality.
The most loving and the very kindest act of love we can give to the homosexuals – is to remind them of this warning and hope they will decide to repent.
See. You just reject reality and rewrite it to support your bigotry. You are not discriminating, you are trying to save them. You are the good guys. Telling them they will burn in hell is literally love.
This is the only truly Godly re-education for the homosexual and nothing less – the only difference is that we will not ask for their jobs, impose fines or subject them to public attack and ridicule if they don’t heed the warning.
Yes because homosexuals haven’t lost jobs or ever been publically attacked verbally or physically.
And you will know us by our love. And our complete incapacity to understand what the word “irony” means.
