Your Pronouns Are Against My Religion

…so expect me to say, when you ask:

  • I use the same pronouns as everyone else
  • I don’t have any personal pronouns (I may laugh at you along with this)
  • Oh I’m sorry that’s against my religion

…because I don’t believe in your god.

When you ask me ‘what are your pronouns’ you are presenting a worldview and requiring me to concede it is accurate. It isn’t, and I don’t play this game. The closest you’ll find me to complying is to use someone’s name or to refer to them by an other identifier (e.g., the postman, your son, boss, etc). But typically I will comply strictly with my religion and use the pronouns that apply to your obvious sex.

“What pronouns do you use” assumes as true that:
“You can be born in the wrong body”

which is as nonsensical as believing ‘the universe started as nothing, which exploded in contravention of known physical laws, and stopped exactly the right time for everything to gloop together into stars and planets that also violate known physical laws, then the rocks formed and changed into people and here we are, by accident.’

Nonsense.

“And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?”

“the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”

Which means your body is the correct one for you.

it’s not my biology it’s my gender

No it is not. People don’t have gender. As they say, “Gender is…” either:
“a social construct”
or
“immutable and synonymous with biological sex”

Depending on what is meant by “gender”. If you mean “I don’t want to talk about sex but we both know I mean sex” then gender=sex, which is cowardice but it’s your prerogative to be such. If you mean “gender is some part of me that is not my body” then that is a woo-woo and I don’t believe in that religion!

Yes, it is a religion. It has as tenets:

  • There is something like a soul or an id, separate and distinct from the body
  • It can be in the wrong sex of body by mistake
  • I get to say when it is a mistake for me
  • Based on (dear reader, I say this carefully) my feelings

It’s the same as saying “I am the god of my own self and get to decide if/when “evolution” flubbed my sex” which is a religious statement contrary to my religion. Which is why the pronoun game is antithetical to Christianity.

You don’t have to like my religion but I won’t comply with yours in contravention of my own. So when I say “Oh I’m sorry, that’s against my religion” I’m being real with you. My sorrow is actually for you, because the Devil you don’t believe in has

you bamboozled in a way that can make you miserable and cause conflict at best, and it’s no stretch to say it may kill you young and send you to Hell after you spent a few hundred-thousand dollars in needless medical fees, paid to a medical system that officially cares more for your money than for your soul.


There is no middle ground and don’t you come in bad faith talking about intersex people, one of which you are not.

So impeachment is now nothing more than a vote of no-confidence. Cool, cool.

Maybe next we can just throw darts at a phone book and decide who the next President will be. Elected politicians have divided themselves so badly into partisan camps that the most-important civil proceeding they can employ has now been used as a cudgel against someone they don’t like, based on something that is not only not criminal, not only not bad, it’s something they themselves have repeatedly done without censure.

Garbage. A pox on all their houses.

The two policemen in Buffalo were fine

The Emergency Response Team has resigned.  There is no statement out yet, but it is presumably in protest that a couple of them were suspended after giving a light push to a citizen who then fell over because he has bad balance or something.  The guy fell and smashed his head on the pavement after scores of police were trying to clear a street, and he walked up to them and prevented the police from advancing, talking, doing something with his hand you can’t see on camera, and two cops both thought it was a good idea to shove him out of a third cop’s way.

Those two cops were doing nothing wrong. The guy got what you get when you impede police officers lawfully clearing an area and you go be a jackass at them.

That is all.

Ralph Northam should not resign.

The governor of Virginia recently went on the record as being in favor of murdering infants which have been born alive. By pure, unsuspicious coincidence*, the next day or so pictures of his school yearbook emerged. He was either dressed as a Klansman or wearing blackface, decades ago, and thought it was amusing enough to put on his own self-decorated yearbook page.

The alleged scandal of his having been the kind of person who thinks this sort of thing is amusing has led to nearly-universal calls for his resignation from the governorship. Let me be clear:

Ralph Northam should not resign.

What he did is arguably in poor taste, but we have had other people (notable comedians included) dress in blackface much more recently with zero “outrage” and no calls for apology or resignation. The people who know him best these days, say that he hasn’t a racist bone in his body. There is no evidence he was actively malicious in his costumery. The people of Virginia (and everybody else) should be willing to allow that college students sometimes do stupid things, and let this slide.

What they should NOT forgive, is his position on abortion which somehow includes support of infanticide. THAT is what should rightfully (in a sane world) sink his prospect at re-election.

********

A bit of political analysis, pure speculation on my part, follows. Bear in mind that 2019 is an election year in Virginia. The Lieutenant Governor of Virginia is accused of actions 14 years ago including a sexual assault against a fellow attendee of the Democratic Party’s National Convention. So there is pressure on him to resign. The Attorney General of Virginia publicly called for Governor Northam to resign some days ago, over the blackface pictures. Now he has come out and admitted that he, too, appeared in blackface costume at a party in the previous century. There are calls for him to resign also. If all three of these resign, then you will have a trio of Democrats out of the way and the next in line of succession in Virginia is a Republican, because the R team holds a slight majority in the legislature of Virginia.

If the beseiged Democrat leadership of the State resigns, then the next election season is much less ugly. You would not have to face (as a Virginian) the D party’s entire leadership having “huge scandals” in their past, which could lead to disgust and D voters staying home. This would lead to a solid R government in Virginia. If they do not resign, then the election is going to be predictably ugly and the R party has better odds in their favor. Little wonder then, that the D party is calling en masse for the resignations of these three men.

*The comments on the murder of small children alone should be enough to sink Northam in the next election. The more conspiracy-minded among us are at least willing to grant the possiblity that the blackface “controversy” arose as a Democrat-planted distraction from the Democratic Party’s willingness to entertain the idea of legalizing murder of small children. The Governor showed the party’s true colors, and this is unacceptable. Gotta lie to ’em a little while longer, don’cha know. It just won’t do to let the idiot voters know we are in favor of killing children any time up until they learn algebra…they’re not quite ready for that, yet!

Shame on you, New York.

The State of New York just passed a bill into law. In the Senate, it passed to a prolonged standing ovation.  The bill

  • removes protection for infants born alive
  • allows abortions in the third trimester, including
  • allows abortion up to the due date
  • permits non-physicians to perform abortion procedures.

This is not about protecting the health of a mother.  Not up to your due date and some jackass with a coat hanger kills the baby.  This is 100% about convenience-murder.  ‘member when people used to argue that abortion procedures should be legal so the thing could be done safely by a doctor? Pepe farm members.

And then, not to be outdone, in Virginia they are talking about a bill which has the support of the Governor, which allows murder of a child which has been delivered and is alive on her own.  Legislation is morality written down.  The States of New York and Virginia have lost their moral compasses.

It looks like it’s time to remind everyone of some first principles

Keep Guessing, Boys!

…hopefully you’ll get it right eventually.

New research suggests that maybe, just maybe, the science isn’t settled after all.  To put it mildly.  You could also say this is possibly a paradigm-shifting thing.  The Earth was apparently not formed according to the conventional theory, because the amounts and locations of metals in the crust are all wrong.  Maybe. In theory.

If these people would read their Bibles they would know that the Earth isn’t 4 billion or any billion years old, and that God made it right, first try, because he’s smart like that.

Since their worldview voluntarily prevents knowing that, they will forever be making new, puzzling discoveries and still not be able to figure it out.

Scientists Fit Good Data To Bad, Global Warming Resumes

This is as much an online placeholder for me as for you. In the future, when people wonder “what do you mean, scientists adjust the temperature data to make it look warmer?” I can point them to this article right here. One of the two satellite-based temperature records wasn’t showing any warming, so the guys doing the recording have decided to make their very good data fit some iffy data, so it will agree with the politicians’ conclusions.

FOR SCIENCE!

At Least the Nazis Had Respect for Motherhood…

Today I learned, the USA is worse than the National Socialist Party of Germany in the 1930s in one significant respect: we have lost the motivation as a nation to protect the babymakers. This is how you lose a society*.

The Wizards of Smart have decided that, in the name of Equality, women will be allowed into all combat roles in our military forces. This is bad enough. But in a couple of years when all the paperwork is done, the women of “fighting age”**will also be required to register for the draft. Because people demand equality. Specifically, there is a lawsuit now going forward to pursue the claim that a male-only draft is unconstitutional.

The feminists wanted equality. This is what equality looks like. Like it or not ladies, I don’t think you should be out there getting shot-at. And I’m still holding the door for you. And I know you like it, because you thank me and smile when I do it. Probably because I live in a civilized part of the world, not some whacko college campus where they’d berate me for it (and be berated in return) 😉
