Black Lives Matter Vs. All Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter Vs. All Lives Matter

Does the phrase “Black Lives Matter” suggest that white lives, and other non-black lives, do not matter? Yes, that is exactly what the phrase now suggests, despite claims to the contrary by its supporters; explanation to follow.

There is a difference between the sentiment (lower case letters) “black lives matter” (which I think, Neo-Nazi skinheads aside, most people agree with – yes black lives do matter) and the organization or group who call themselves Black Lives Matter (their site is (Link): here).

The leaders of the BLM group have (Link): admitted to being Marxists.

For further research: (Link): (video on You Tube): Black Lives Matter is a MARXIST, Anarchist Movement and They Admit It! 

The BLM (Black Lives Matter) group is not really about racism, fighting racism, and at this point, the many protests (affiliated with them or not), are not about fighting racism, or about George Floyd.

It’s all about overturning the entire American nation – ditching all of American history, free market capitalism, and ushering in some kind of Maoist, socialist hell-scape. That is their goal.

(Some of the black members of BLM, or those sympathetic to their group, are not above trying to exploit white guilt to get monetary funds – I may be mentioning more about that in a future post.

So, their concern is not about equal opportunity for, or gaining respect for, black people with this crowd; it’s about Marxism and getting money.

White, left wing authors who sell books about “white fragility” are also con artists, getting a piece of this pie. )

Coronavirus: Even Married People With Children Die All Alone

Coronavirus: Even Married People With Children Die All Alone

There have been several news reports over the last two or three months reporting about how so many people – especially elderly people – are dying all alone due to Covid-19 (Coronavirus), whether they are dying in hospitals or nursing homes.

Due to wanting to contain the virus, medical facilities are not permitting family (if any) of the dying Covid patient to visit their sick loved one. So, a lot of people – even married parents! – are dying alone. (Links with examples to follow.)

I bring this up because one scare tactic I’ve seen used off and on by marriage-promoters, such as Southern Baptist Al Mohler and others, is to tell single and childless adults that we will die all alone, unless we marry and have children. They tell childless, never married adults like myself to be very afraid, because unless I marry and have a child, I will be all alone on my death bed.

Well, my mother – who was married and had adult children – died all alone in the wee hours at a care facility she was staying at. Despite the fact my mother was married with kids did not guarantee that she had the “Norman Rockwell” death so many marriage-pushers suggest one will have, where one will be surrounded by loving spouse holding their hand while adult children surround the bed tenderly looking on.

People dying all alone sans children and spouse (if they are married with kids) has definitely been a thing since the start of Covid 19.

Here are links about the situation, including a link or two from marriage-pushing, conservative sites such as The Federalist:

“I’m already downstairs, doctor. Can I see my mother just for five minutes?”

I told him that I would ask the nursing manager; given the fact that Mrs. A couldn’t speak or understand, perhaps that would fall under the list of reasons why an exception could be made.

But five minutes later, the nurse was on the phone trying to calm him down. “I just want to be there for five minutes to tell her why I can’t visit anymore, that she shouldn’t worry when I stop showing up!”

The nurse tears up as she says that he cannot visit. She turns to me, and I motion that I would take back the call.

Prophet Who Raped Male and Female Members of His Own Church Jailed

Prophet Who Raped Male and Female Members of His Own Church Jailed

(Link): Self-styled prophet, 60, who raped female and male members of his church at least 88 times in ‘spiritual baths’ he said had been ordained by God is jailed for 34 years

Excerpts:

A ‘feared’ evangelical pastor who used his trusted position to abuse children and adults over 20 years has been jailed for 34 years after his conviction for multiple rapes of members of his congregation.

Self-styled prophet Michael Oluronbi, originally from Nigeria and living inBirmingham, was found guilty of the offences against six women and a man in January, actions described by a judge as ‘one of the worst cases of sexual abuse of multiple children to come before the courts’.

Some of his offences were carried out after he convinced victims, five of whom attended his church, to take part in ‘spiritual bathing’, which he claimed would ‘cleanse’ them of evil spirits.

Christian Network TBN Now Airing Secular Commercials – Their Holy Land Amusement Park Tanking

Christian Network TBN Now Airing Secular Commercials – Their Holy Land Amusement Park Tanking

Well, this is interesting.

I don’t watch TBN nearly as often as I used to, but every so often, I do flip the channel over to see what is going on over there.

Certainly in the year 2020, TBN has been airing “secular” commercial advertisements for a company called “Car Shield.”

I think they may have been airing these ads in 2019.

Of course, the original founders of TBN have died in the last few years, with the son and his wife running things.

When Ma and Pa Crouch (that is, Jan and Paul) ran the network, they detested commercials.

They used to have “Praise A Thons” where they’d get their regular, money-grubbing, smarmy tele-evangelists to come on 24 hours a day for seven days straight, to lecture people about sending money to TBN, and making bogus “Wealth N Health” promises, that if you just mail Paul and Jan Crouch a few bucks, God would heal your cancer or bestow financial blessings upon  you.

After they died (Jan Crouch (Link): died in 2016), I think the son who took over the station realized that “Praise A Thons” were “Snooze A Thons,” so he dumped them.

Soon after dumping them, he tried 30 minute “infomercial” type blocks, where he and his wife would have a Christian author on to hawk whatever book they had recently published.

The deal was, if you mailed TBN some money, they would mail you a copy of that book. (They also use to sell baubles – if you sent them a donation, they would mail you some Jesus-themed doo-dad in return.)

That went on for a few years.

I wondered at the time if they could sustain their network on just that alone. Apparently not.

Excerpts

January 2020

A husband had to seek medical help after his wife put a metal nut on his penis to punish him for being unfaithful in Ukraine.

The unnamed victim in his 40s was woken up by pain in the morning and saw his organ being ‘strangulated’ and swollen.

He tried to take the nut off by himself but failed before calling an ambulance and being hospitalised in the city of Zaporizhia, in the south of the country.

After examining the man, doctors called a ‘Kobra’ rescuers crew because they did not have the necessary tools to remove the chastity nut.

Dating Apps Are Making Marriages Stronger by P. Drexler

Dating Apps Are Making Marriages Stronger by P. Drexler

Before I commence with the excerpts from the Drexler article, I implore any married people out there:
Do NOT, do NOT, do NOT tell your single friends to “just try a dating site if you are lonely / want a boyfriend / want to get married,”
especially if that single friend is coming to you seeking empathy because they are single and would like to be in a relationship – they are discouraged and are looking for empathy, not your stupid dating advice.

I explain why you should avoid the cliche’ in this post.

The short of it is, just because a dating site worked FOR YOU or for Hank Jones mentioned in this article below, or just because it worked for your Aunt Sally, or for your best friend Marge, doesn’t mean other singles have success at online dating.

Some of us keep running into perverts, weirdos, and losers on dating sites and so we (Link): give up on dating sites and dating apps.

I am not opposed to dating sites or apps, but I recognize they are NOT guarantees of meeting a “Mr. Right,” so married folks:
stop acting like joining a dating site will solve all of a single woman’s problems in the romance department. Because they don’t work for everyone who tries them.

Excerpts:

Couples who meet online tend to communicate better, commit more easily and have longer, happier relationships.

August 29, 2019

…. Online dating has been criticized for lots of things. Some say that it encourages a “meat market” approach to romance, offering too much choice – and too much temptation to constantly look for something better.

Others deride it as nothing more than a platform for arranging quick hookups. But there is now evidence that online dating could, in fact, be improving  the likelihood of romantic compatibility – and making marriage stronger.

According to a 2016 Pew Research poll, half of all Americans know someone who uses online dating or has met a spouse or serious partner that way.

Christian Rock Star Arrested In Connection With Child Sex Assault Probe Before Going on Stage

Christian Rock Star Arrested In Connection With Child Sex Assault Probe Before Going on Stage

The article says that this Christian rock star has a son. So, this guy is a father. I would assume that the rock star was married at one point (unless he had his son out of wedlock).

I point this out to say that a lot of conservative Christians and conservative secular think tanks keep arguing that “family values” and being “pro marriage” and people having children will somehow “fix” the United States. No, it won’t.

First of all, no passage in the Bible argues that the way to “fix” culture is to have more marriage and more natalism – chapter seven in 1 Corinthians actually says it is better to remain single than it is to marry. The Bible says a person must be changed by accepting Jesus as her savior, not by getting married and having kids. The Bible doesn’t talk about cleaning up culture.

Secondly, personal observation. There are way too many married people with children we all know, or have read about who are selfish, rapists, child molesters, or into selling drugs and what all (see some examples of that on this blog (Link): here and (Link): here).

Marriage and parenthood are not guarantees of making a person more mature, ethical, godly, principled, and responsible – but conservatives keep arguing otherwise, and it’s a highly deceitful and unbiblical argument for them to continue to advance.

Please see the bottom of this post for more remarks by me.

No One Told Me Exactly What to Expect From Menopause. But the Messages I Did Get Were Very Wrong by D. Steink

No One Told Me Exactly What to Expect From Menopause. But the Messages I Did Get Were Very Wrong by D. Steinke

(Link): No One Told Me Exactly What to Expect From Menopause. But the Messages I Did Get Were Very Wrong

Excerpts:

I was 50 when I woke in my dark attic bedroom in Brooklyn, my heart speeding and my body incandescent with heat. I did not feel simply hot, no, I was being smothered by an internal fire that seemed to pool inside my body like lava.

At first I thought it was a heart attack.

After more flashes, over my morning bowl of oatmeal, as I rode the subway under the East River and while I taught, I realized it was not a heart attack. It was a hot flash.

I had entered menopause, that fraught transition in every woman’s life, known in an earlier time as The Dangerous Age.

Earlier life stages, going through puberty and giving birth, had opened up new worlds, the excitement of sexuality and motherhood.

But menopause arrived without absorbing directives. Instead of new obsessions and responsibilities, I felt a nothingness.

It’s a void created in part by our oversexed patriarchal culture, a world that has little respect for older women.

Valued most for our sexuality and role as mothers many women feel, once that phase is over, as I did. Marginalized. The message, never stated directly but manifesting in myriad ways, is an overwhelmingly nihilistic one: your usefulness is over. Please step to the sidelines.

…..I searched for books that might help me understand what was happening to me. I read Suzanne Sommers’ The Sexy Years and Gail Sheedy’s Silent Passages.

Both are fear-based.

Both authors are frantic to keep the veneer of a fertile femininity intact.

This Is What Therapists Tell People Who Are Sick Of Being Single

This Is What Therapists Tell People Who Are Sick Of Being Single

I’m going to link to this page (farther below in this blog post) with a caveat.

The following page I am linking to is aimed primarily at adult singles who are around ages 20 to 39. As I write this post, I am over the age of 45, and I have never married.

This is the sort of article that doles out the standard, cliched advice that tells marriage-desiring adults  who are still single and worried about being single that “when you least expect it, that’s when you will meet Mr. (or Ms.) Right.”

It’s similar to the stereotyped and un-true Christian advice on this topic, which tells Christian singles that the moment they become “content in their singleness,” that is supposedly when God will send them their spouse.

  • As a now over- age- 45 adult who had wanted to be married,
    and as an adult who had expected and hoped to be married by age 35,
  • who once was a very devout Christian who believed the Christians who told me if I just prayed and trusted in God that God would send me a spouse,
  • and as an adult who has been content with her singleness on and off over the years,

I can tell you this:

None of this advice works, certainly not for everyone.

That is, you can be content being single and still not meet “Mr. Right.”

I am a (Link): former gender complementarian, so I understand the outlook of a Tony Evans and guys like him, and many of the assumptions that are made about culture and gender roles, but these are views that I no longer share.

He further thinks that teaching Christian gender roles is the way to go about it.

As I’ve stated many times previously in other posts, the Bible says that Jesus Christ alone saves, and he saves on the individual level.

He doesn’t save groups or cultures.

Conservatives Have Now Abandoned All Pretense of Advocating For Sexual Abstinence and They Actually Lament the Lack of Fornication – The Bradford Wilcox Piece, 2019

Marriage Is Not A Guarantee For Good or Regular Sex

This moronic essay actually suggests that single adults having less sex is what has led to them reporting higher rates of unhappiness, if I’m understanding things correctly.

This, astonishingly, from a right wing organization, (Link): The Institute For Family Studies, that claims to promote “strong families,” and good Lord knows they are obsessed with promoting marriage, even if that comes at the expense of singleness.

The members of this organization regularly publish materials intended to scare, guilt, shame, or pressure single adults into getting married, because this organization exists to promote the nuclear family: hetero-marriage where the couple have children.

Colton Underwood Acts Disgusted By Concept of Women’s Period Underwear

Colton Underwood Acts Disgusted By Concept of Women’s Period Underwear

I have previously defended this Underwood guy when he was being mocked by people online for being a virgin into adulthood. Nobody should be shaming people for being virgins.

However, I refuse to defend Underwood on this one.

I have no patience for men who act “grossed out” and immature over women’s periods and all that accompany them.

Men are not the ones who have to deal with the actual inconveniences and physical pains accompanied by periods, which usually last for around five or six days every month out of every year.

Women cannot control when or if we get periods. We cannot help if the period blood leaks and stains our bed-sheets, pants, shorts, or skirts – those are just some of the realities women have to contend with when getting a period monthly.

(Some men are so stupid about how periods work, they seriously do not know how long periods last or how often women get them, which is why I mention that.)

Underwood, like countless men, don’t understand the practical realities of living with a period.

You don’t simply throw out a pair of underwear if you get some period blood on it – you toss it in the washer and clean it and re-use it.

It would be too expensive to continually buy new underwear if every time you put a pair on it becomes soiled by period blood.
