A lot of us have been thinking the last couple of days about how our culture came to be where it is. The religious freedom piece may be the most important, but for now I want to focus on how our society came to believe that homosexual activity and changing one’s gender are perfectly natural activities worthy of praise. As I see it, there are two main catalysts.

  1. Modern Individualism

We are living in the age of Peak Enlightenment, when the modern focus on the self is approaching its climax. Western individuals can hardly be more obsessed with themselves and their rights, and we are now learning how such narcissism may do real harm to themselves and others. Society will continue to disintegrate as individuals wrangle over whose rights, freedoms, and dignity should be respected and whose must not be.

The Enlightenment taught us to follow the thoughts and desires…

In Baltimore the elected officials are primarily black, as is the leadership of the police department, so the race card is hard to play

Posted on

by Bill O’Reilly
Last night I opined that the big loser in the Baltimore situation is the African-American community in that city and nationwide.

That’s because in order to succeed in America, you have to be competitive in the economic marketplace.

And that message is not getting through to many Americans.

Simply put: The government cannot provide prosperity, you have to make it happen.

False promises from politicians are really damaging America.

In Baltimore, the economic situation is dire and the crime problem in the African-American precincts is a scandal.

But most black citizens are honest, hard-working people and they are looking for opportunity.

But the rioting has now diminished that opportunity big time.

For example, Baltimore is a big convention city.  Twenty-nine meetings were set for this year alone — an estimated $138 million to Baltimore in convention business.

But now conventions are starting to cancel.

The Baltimore Orioles, a big revenue driver for the city.

Today the Orioles played a game in front of zero spectators, nobody allowed into the park.

So all the vendors, many of them young people, will lose a payday.

And they’ll lose three paydays over the weekend, as the Orioles were supposed to play Tampa in Baltimore but are now moving the games to Florida.

I could give you scores, pardon the pun, of other examples.

It is a fact that irresponsible criminals in Baltimore have once again hurt good folks, this time on a mass level.

The city will take years to recover.

That means more poverty, more law breaking, more deprivation.

And that means more confrontations with the police.

Look, inner city policing is perhaps the most difficult job in the country.

That being said, there is no excuse for brutality, and any kind of police violence — unless in self-defense — has to be adjudicated.

It is quite clear that many African-Americans believe they are not treated fairly in the criminal justice system.

So our elected officials must now deal with that on a factual basis.

In Baltimore the elected officials are primarily black, as is the leadership of the police department, so the race card is hard to play.

Nevertheless, we hear some really dumb things from politicians.

Here’s one of them:

BALTIMORE CITY COUNCIL PRESIDENT BERNARD C. “JACK” YOUNG (D): “I made a comment out of frustration and anger when I called our children ‘thugs.’  They’re not thugs.  They’re just misdirected.  We need to direct them on a different path by creating opportunities for them because they see hopelessness.”

With all due respect, the government cannot create opportunities for young people who are uneducated, disrespectful, and unmotivated.

That is impossible.  Personal behavior dictates failure, and no phony promise will change that.

So let’s stop making false promises and excuses.

Like this one:

CNN last night

BALTIMORE CITY COUNCILMAN CARL STOKES (D): “No, of course it’s not the right word to call our children ‘thugs.’  These are children who have been set aside, marginalized, who have not been engaged by us.  No, we don’t have to call them thugs.”

ERIN BURNETT, CNN HOST: “But how does that justify what they did?  I mean, that’s a sense of right and wrong.  They know it’s wrong to steal and burn down a CVS and an old person’s home.  I mean, come on.”

STOKES: “Come on?  So calling them thugs – just call them n******.  Just call them n******.”

A very emotional statement by Councilman Stokes.  But again, if the children have been marginalized in Baltimore, it is largely the fault of their parents — not the country, not the police.

Again, the city of Baltimore has been run by black politicians and the Democratic Party for decades.

So who exactly is marginalizing the children, forcing them to commit violent crimes?

Who?

Survivors outraged after learning Tsarnaev’s family’s trip to US paid for with American tax dollars

The family of the convicted marathon bomber is in America, on your tax dollars What a country–and they still want to Kill you.

The family of the convicted marathon bomber is in America, on your tax dollars, and survivors are outraged after learning the news.

As of Thursday, family members of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have been staying at the Hampton Inn in Revere under very tight security, just one of the things tax dollars are paying for. FOX25’s Sharman Sacchetti investigated how much this trip is costing you.

Sources say these family members are being called as witnesses and not only that, at least three agencies are working around the clock to protect and transport them. This is all part of the defense team’s strategy to save Tsarnaev. While it’s unclear when their flight started, we know the last part of it came through Amsterdam and landed at Logan Airport and cost nearly $2,500 per person.

The cost to put them up at the Hampton Inn at the government rate: almost $200…

The most intolerant people in America

Jerry Lingle:

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elana Kagan should  recuse themselves because they have officiated same-sex marriages. The American public is rapidly turning against LGBT bullying tactics. The stakes are high. The price of getting marriage wrong is steep, 

Originally posted on WisdomForLife:

With the Supreme Court preparing for decisions on gay marriage, please recognize that many of those promoting it are among the most intolerant people in our country. They operate with a “see things my way, or else!” approach.

Whatever your opinion on gay marriage, we must not sit silently by and allow this kind of radical intolerance to threaten civility and freedom.

Don’t fall for the naive line that says, “What’s the big deal? It won’t affect others if two men get married.” This way of thinking naively plays into a larger coercive agenda that will not be good for the nation.

You can be certain that marriage is not the only thing gay activists demand. Marriage is the issue being used to obtain status as a protected minority under civil rights legislation. Why do you think repeated efforts are made to suggest that being gay is equal with racial identity?

Ryan Anderson talks about so-called gay marriage

“Cultural Christianity … is dying at a warp speed … Democrats were pro killing children and pro homosexuality,” http://allenwestrepublic.com/2015/04/21/pastors-fiery-message-for-christian-denominations-condoning-homosexuality/ … …

Ryan Anderson is young, smart, and articulate.

This Heritage Foundation Fellow is one of the best spokesman on the scene for making the case for traditional marriage. Even though he is Roman Catholic, he makes his case with secular arguments.

He never lets his feathers get ruffled, even when his opponents turn nasty, which they do. The political Left in this country hates him.

The Washington Post ran a balanced profile piece on Mr. Anderson, which someone linked to his alma mater’s Facebook Page. You can guess what happened. Someone complained, since Anderson opposes so-called gay marriage. The head of the school quickly took down the link, with this comment:

“As many of you know, earlier today we posted a Washington Post article profiling a Friends School alumnus who is a prominent national legal advocate opposing same-sex marriage. At 5:45 this evening, I removed that post from…

MUST READ: Robert Spencer’s Blogging the Qur’an: Sura 3, ‘The Family of Imran’

Are you a non-Muslim? Then Allah hates you (Qur’an 3:32).

Are you Jewish or Christian? In the Qur’an’s third chapter, Allah will tell you why you’re following a false religion.

The Qur’an’s third chapter is entitled “The Family of Imran” — that is, Amram, the father of Moses and Aaron (Exodus 6:20), who is mentioned in verses 33 and 35. Like most titles in the Qur’an, this title doesn’t denote the sura’s theme, but is just a word taken from within the chapter that is simply a means to distinguish it from other chapters.

According to Maududi, Sura 3, which is a Medinan sura, is “especially addressed” to Jews and Christians, as well as to Muslims.

It contains, he says, a “continuation…
