The Persecution has Begun AFA MAP with LEGAND

Homosexual activists trashed two North Carolina churches over the weekend and spray-painted pro-“gay” messages over the church properties, which sustained thousands of dollars’ worth of damages.

A Closer LookBales Memorial Wesleyan Church in Jamestown, N.C., was the first Christian house of worship to be targeted last weekend by militant LGBT advocates, who destroyed the church’s sign, broke windows and pulled parking signs out of the ground. Not stopping there, the homosexual activists tore up flowers in the parking lot and vandalized the church bus by scratching up its hood and jamming a sign through its front grill, according to the Christian News Network.

On Saturday, members of the Wesleyan church also found their church building covered with broken eggs, silly string, and pro-homosexual jargon fused with hate speech. Some of the spray-painted vandalism written on the outside walls of the Jamestown church included, “Gay’s OK,” “He hates you!” and “God loves [expletive]!”

The next day, “gay” activists struck another church less than 20 miles away in Greensboro with similar rage and destruction. Grace Baptist Church officials were dismayed to find their worship center vandalized Sunday morning with the signature window smashing and egg pelting over its facility. This time, however, silly string was replaced with toilet paper, which covered the church property.

Trademark pro-homosexual slogans were spray painted across the Greensboro church property, as well. The LGBT messaging differed slightly from what was discovered 20 miles down the road. “Straights support” and “God loves gays” were among the slogans tagged upon the church’s outer brick walls. In addition, the homosexual activists included a spray-painted rainbow across the church — the symbol of LGBT community support and membership.

The high cost of ‘tolerance’

The weekend attacks on religious freedom in the Tar Heel State will set both congregations back in time and money to repair the damages.

Bales Memorial Wesleyan Church Pastor Carl Pulliam disclosed to the press that it would cost around $10,000 to repair the damages made by the homosexual activists. The pastor of the Jamestown congregation is confused as to why his church was singled out, especially given the fact that homosexuals are always welcome to join services on its facility.

“I can’t tell you a reason that someone would target this church, particularly because this is a loving church,” Pulliam expressed in a statement he made to the media. “This is not a judgmental place or a place where someone would ever feel provoked to these kinds of acts.”

Pulliam acknowledged the silencing intent behind the attack, but promised that acts of hatred and persecution will not succeed in suppressing the Gospel message at the church. In fact, he says it will have quite the opposite effect.

“Someone meant ill will to this house of worship,” Pulliam explained. “This was done to stop our message. That part didn’t succeed. It actually perpetuates our message.”

Also consistent with the Gospel message, Pulliam shared his conviction of love and forgiveness toward the perpetrators of the attack.

“We’re not angry at them,” Pulliam insisted. “We forgive them.”

We’re all sinners

Grace Baptist Church Pastor Paul Coward didn’t have a complete rundown of the cost of the damages of his church besides the $300 needed to replace a broken window, but he did assess the heart of the problem behind the attack.

“Why would someone stoop so low to vandalize a church? In a word: Sin!” Coward voiced in a Facebook post. “The prophet Jeremiah says that ‘the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked above all things.’”

Despite his condemnation of the attack, Coward pointed out that the vandalism was simply a result of sin, which is prevalent in every man’s heart — Christians and unbelievers, “gays” and straights.

“Yes, it’s true that Satan opposes God and he is probably laughing about this vandalism,” Coward asserted. “But God shows us the destructive sin nature found in all mankind — including each one of us!”

Coward turned the unfortunate incident into a teaching moment to forward the Gospel message as he reiterated the Words of Christ.

“[W]e need to listen to the [W]ords of Jesus from the sermon on the mount,” Coward exhorted in his post before quoting Scripture. “‘But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which spitefully use you, and persecute you (Matthew 5:44).’”

Despite both pastors’ forgiving hearts, law enforcement from both Jamestown and Greensboro has launched a criminal investigation to bring the homosexual vandals to justice. As the investigation proceeds, police officials are asking community members to provide them with any information they have that will help identify the perpetrators.cp 04OARLogo Picture6

Trigger Warning

We’ve written quite a bit about Trigger Warnings since before it became fashionable:

The fragile college student mind is getting more fragile by the day.

As if the normal run of political correctness were not enough, we now have “Trigger Warnings” — the notion that students need to be warned that the material they are about to read in class may “trigger” emotional upset….

Of course, how the trigger is defined says much about the theory behind the movement — it almost always serves left-wing critical race and gender theories ….

The Trigger Warning movement is all about enforcing a conformity of thought by forcing faculty and others to identify and warn about politically incorrect ideas.more evidence

The Trigger Warning in the Featured Image was displayed at Oberlin when Christina Hoff Sommers spoke:

UT-Arlington Philosophy Prof. Keith Burgess-Jackson has come up with a Trigger Warning for his Philosophy of Religion class.

He writes:

I’ve decided to include a trigger warning in each course syllabus, beginning this fall. Here is the trigger warning for my upcoming Philosophy of Religion course. What do you think?

What do I think?

I think the precious, fragile souls demanding Trigger Warnings will demand that you put a Trigger Warning on this Trigger Warning.

Here we go:

Philosophy of religion is not for the faint-hearted, the close-minded, the thinskinned, the timid, the hypersensitive, the squeamish, the unintellectual (or antiintellectual), the developmentally arrested, the childish, or the easily offended. If you are traumatized (or even dismayed) by the idea of a punitive (retributive) god, or by the use of masculine pronouns (such as “He,” “Him,” or “His”) to refer to God, or by the mere possibility that God is male (rather than female, androgynous, or asexual), then this course is not for you. If you believe in God but are unwilling to entertain the possibility that your belief is false, then this course is not for you, since we will be examining (and taking seriously) arguments against the existence of God. If you disbelieve in God but are unwilling to entertain the possibility that your belief is false, then this course is not for you, since we will be examining (and taking seriously) arguments for the existence of God. If you are an adherent of a particular religion and believe it to be blasphemous, sinful, heretical, or immoral to think about, discuss, or take seriously other religions, then this course is not for you. If you believe that argumentation in particular or philosophy in general is coercive, masculine, belligerent, or militaristic, then this course is not for you. If you believe that morality is oppressive, sexist, or nothing more than a prop for capitalism or some other economic system, or that the making of moral judgments is “judgmental” (in the sense of being overly or gratuitously critical), then this course is not for you, for we will be examining (and taking seriously) an argument (the so-called Moral Argument) to the effect that the existence of morality (or the fact that we make moral judgments, or the fact that moral judgments or values are objective) supports, implies, or presupposesthe existence of God. If you are distressed or discomfited by the concept of evil, or by the possibility that there is evil in the world, or by the possibility that some people (or their actions) are evil, then this is not the course for you, because we will be asking whether (and, if so, how) the existence of evil (natural or moral) renders the existence of God either impossible or improbable. In short, this course, like any other philosophy course, is for thick-skinned, mature, open-minded, intellectually curious people.

Howard Dean MSNBC

Wow. First David Brock and now Howard Dean. Is there something in the water at MSNBC?

Dean is the former chair of the DNC, a role now filled by our favorite Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz. As a long time party loyalist, Dean appeared on Morning Joe yesterday and attempted to downplay new scandalous revelations regarding the Clintons.

Hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough could barely contain their skepticism.

David Rutz of the Washington Free Beacon:

Mika Tires of Howard Dean’s ‘Jihad’ for Clintons: ‘The Facts Are The Facts’

The New York Times reported Thursday that the Clinton Global Initiative accepted millions of dollars from a Russian oil company when the State Department, then headed by Hillary Clinton, was approving a deal that would give Russians control of the company Uranium One and bring Vladimir Putin “closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.” The charges are part of Peter Schweizer’s book Clinton Cash.

Dean, rather than directly address the Clintons’ latest problem, went after Schweizer for taking money from “billionaires” who “support Ted Cruz,” essentially arguing that anything his book revealed should be dismissed because of his conservative political leanings.

Yet, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough pointed out outlets such as the New York Times and others were doing legitimate reporting off the accusations in Schweizer’s work.

“So forget the author at this point,” Brzezinski said. “If the facts are true, we need to pursue that. You can go on your little jihad against the author, but it’s not going to change the facts. The facts are the facts.”Liberalism a mental disorder 2

Watch the exchange:

Dean also recently lashed out at a New York Times reporter on this subject, calling the Times sloppy.

Evan McMurry of Mediaite:

NY Times Reporter Snaps at Howard Dean for Calling Paper ‘Sloppy’

New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters wasn’t taking guff from former DNC chair Howard Dean on Morning Joe Thursday morning.

Dean was there to defend Hillary Clinton against charges leveled in a new book and reported out by the Times that the Clinton Global Initiative took undisclosed funds from a Russian oil company as that company was securing State Department approval for deals in the U.S. The article is part of access deals secured by the Times and others to Peter Schweizer’s Clinton Cash. Clinton surrogates have spent the past few days criticizing Schweizer as a conservative ideologue funded by right-wing Clinton opponents.

“In general New York Times has been sloppy,” Dean said. “Particularly their political writers. I use the Times as an example in journalism classes, because by the fifth paragraph in any political story…they’re substituting their judgment for news.”

Pass the popcorn, please.

Earth Day Worship

The very first Earth Day took place at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia forty-five years ago and on the stage of that celebration was a young man named Ira Einhorn. Wow – bet he was a really considerate and concerned citizen of Mother Earth, right? … well, not so much it turns out.

By that day Einhorn had made a name for himself as Philadelphia’s “head hippie” and claimed that he was a founder of Earth Day. No member of the Progressive movement has ever disputed that.

So who was Ira Einhorn? – from Katie Pavlich at Townhall:

 

A self-proclaimed environmental activist, Einhorn made a name for himself among ecological groups during the 1960s and ’70s by taking on the role of a tie-dye-wearing ecological guru and Philadelphia’s head hippie.

With his long beard and gap-toothed smile, Einhorn — who nicknamed himself “Unicorn” because his German-Jewish last name translates to “one horn”  —advocated flower power, peace and free love to his fellow students at the University of Pennsylvania. He also claimed to have helped found Earth Day.

But the charismatic spokesman who helped bring awareness to environmental issues and preached against the Vietnam War — and any violence — had a secret dark side.

When his girlfriend of five years, Helen “Holly” Maddux, moved to New York and broke up with him, Einhorn threatened that he would throw her left-behind personal belongings onto the street if she didn’t come back to pick them up.

Maddux was found 18-months later stuffed into a trunk in Einhorn’s closet. Einhorn was arrested and released on bail.

An interesting side note to this story is that the defense attorney who got Einhorn out on bail was none other than fellow hippie Arlen Spector – who no doubt knew what an incredible flight risk this cancerous sociopath was.

Sure enough, once out on bail Einhorn jumped bail, hit the road and spent decades hiding all over Europe. Twenty-three years later, Einhorn was exposed, arrested and extradited to the US. He stood trial for murder, was convicted, and is currently serving a life sentence.

 

He testified in his own behalf, claiming his ex-girlfriend was murdered by CIA agents who framed him for the crime because about the agency’s paranormal military research.Liberalism a mental disorder 2

Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the founder of Earth Day.

The people celebrating Earth Day today are frankly, no less nutty than Ira Einhorn. For example, there was a huge rally celebrating Earth Day on the National Mall in Washington.

Here’s how the revelers left the mall.

And then there’s this all-time classic. Bill Nye, the Science Guy, celebrated Earth Day with President Obama.

Television personality and climate change activist Bill Nye was skewered online for announcing an Air Force One flight with President Obama on Earth Day.

“Heading down to DC to catch an #EarthDay flight on Air Force One tomorrow with the President. We’re going to #ActOnClimate,” Mr. Nye wrote on Twitter late Tuesday. The two men will fly across the country to discuss the Florida Everglades climate change’s effect on the economy.more evidence

As Glenn Reynolds, the Instapundit, frequently says, “I’ll start caring about things like Earth Day when the people who are trying to shove environmentalism down my throat start acting like it’s important.”

The president and flaky old Bill burned nearly 10,000 gallons of jet fuel in Air Force One on their little trip.

FLASHBACK 1977: Earth Day Co-Founder Composts Dead Girlfriend

Here’s an inconvenient truth about the self-described founder of a Earth Day: He murdered and composted his girlfriend. Environmental activist and self-proclaimed Earth Day co-founder Ira Einhorn had a dark side. NBC News reported in 2011 that Einhorn was found guilty of murdering his ex-girlfriend, Helen Maddux and stuffing her “composted” body inside a trunk. Einhorn jumped bail and spent 23 years evading authorities and hiding out all over Europe. Finally, he was caught and extradited to the U.S. from France, where he was put on trial and convicted of murder. He is currently serving a life sentence.

Article reblogged from The Daily Caller: http://dailycaller.com

URL of the Original Posting Site: http://dailycaller.com/2015/04/23/clinton-foundation-caught-straight-up-lying-to-new-york-times-reporter-video/

In a preview of Fox News’ upcoming special on the allegations that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton traded political favors for donations to the Clinton Foundation, The New York Times reporter Jo Becker revealed that the Clintons straight-up lied to her about whether Bill Clinton had attended a key meeting. (VIDEO: Josh Earnest Dodges 10 Consecutive Questions About Clinton Foundation)

One of the revelations in the Times piece is that Bill Clinton played a key role in the insuring acquisition of key uranium mines from the Kazakh state-owned uranium mining company Kazatomprom to Canadian millionaire Frank Giustra. After the transaction, Giustra gave over $30 million to the Clinton Foundation.

But when Becker asked for details about a meeting between the three men, the Clintons denied it ever happened. “When I first contacted both the Clinton Foundation, Mr. Clinton’s spokesman and Mr. Giustra they denied any such meeting ever took place,” she told Fox News.

“But then when we told them, well, we already talked to the head of Kazatomprom who not only told us all about the meeting, but actually has a picture has a picture of him and Bill at the home in Chappaqua that he proudly displayed on his office wall, they then acknowledged that yes, the meeting had taken place.”
