A Heartfelt Thanks to Fathers

In an age where men are under subversive attack more than ever it is important for us to take some time out of our day to thank our fathers, grandfathers, uncles, the men who raised us and who built this country.  Children need strong role models, both a mother and a father.  The idea of a strong independent woman who can do both simply is not the case.  Children need both parents.  The one common thread amongst most of the mass shooters is that they came from single-parent households and did not have a father figure.

The attack on men and fatherhood is real.  I think we can all agree in the past year or two more than ever the push to try and remove the genders is as bad as ever.  As divorce rates climb and children are increasingly raised without a father figure the ripple effect in the next generation or two will be disastrous.  And the attacks are everywhere.  Even subtle crap, like Google not thanking fathers today, is a subversive cultural attack that does have an effect.  They will find any and every excuse to celebrate every accomplishment and holiday for every group other than straight (usually white) men.  Often times it is not noticeable in the moment, but it grows over time.

Can’t even do it today can ya Google?

Hug your pops if you can.  Say a quick prayer if he has passed on.  Get married.  Have children.  Raise families and raise your kids right so we can leave society (hopefully) a little better off than we found it.  For those fathers out there looking for a good blog for Christian men, check out Men of the West.

Vatican pushes back on gender theory

It’s nice to see the Vatican pushing back at least a little bit on at least one topic.  On June 12th, in the middle of Pride month, they released “MALE AND FEMALE HE CREATED THEM” which is to serve as an aid to Catholic school teachers on how to deal with the topic of gender theory.  National Catholic Reporter did a nice writeup on the document:

VATICAN CITY — The Vatican office responsible for overseeing Catholic educational institutions around the world has blasted modern gender theory, claiming in a new document that it seeks to “annihilate the concept of ‘nature.’ ”

In an instruction released June 10 as LGBT people globally are celebrating pride month, the Congregation for Catholic Education calls the idea of people’s gender identities existing along a spectrum “nothing more than a confused concept of freedom in the realm of feelings and wants.”

Labeling the biological differences between men and women “constitutive of human identity,” the office also questions the intentions of those who identify as intersex and transgender.

“Efforts to go beyond the constitutive male-female sexual difference, such as the ideas of ‘intersex’ or ‘transgender,’ lead to a masculinity or femininity that is ambiguous,” states the document.

“This oscillation between male and female becomes, at the end of the day, only a ‘provocative’ display against so-called ‘traditional frameworks,’ ” it continues.

The document, which carries the title “Male and female he created them,” was released by the Vatican June 10 without prior announcement. Described as an aid for Catholic schoolteachers and parents, it is signed by the educational congregation’s leaders: Italians Cardinal Giuseppe Versaldi and Archbishop Angelo Zani.

The educational aid does not carry Pope Francis’ signature, and the text makes no reference of the pontiff reviewing the document.

Groups that minister to LGBT Catholics immediately criticized the document. New Ways Ministry, one such group, called it a “harmful tool that will be used to oppress and harm not only transgender people, but lesbian, gay, [and] bisexual people, too.”

And further down:

The new document, which is 31 pages in length, does not speak of accompanying transgender people. It instead issues fierce warnings and criticisms of how children and young people are being educated today.

The text opens by saying that society is facing “an educational crisis, especially in the field of affectivity and sexuality.”

It then claims that cultural “disorientation” has destabilized the family as an institution, “bringing with it a tendency to cancel out the differences between men and women, presenting them instead as merely the product of historical and cultural conditioning.”

The heart of the document critiques modern society’s detachment of an individual’s concept of gender from their biological sex.

“Gender theory … speaks of a gradual process of denaturalization, that is a move away from nature and towards an absolute option for the decision of the feelings of the human subject,” it states.

“In this understanding of things, the view of both sexuality identity and the family become subject to the same ‘liquidity’ and ‘fluidity’ that characterize other aspects of post-modern culture, often founded on nothing more than a confused concept of freedom in the realm of feelings and wants, or momentary desires provoked by emotional impulses and the will of the individual,” it continues.

The text claims that genetic studies have shown that male and female embryos differ “from the very moment of conception.” In cases where a child is born with ambiguous genitalia, it says “it is medical professionals who can make a therapeutic intervention.”

“In such situations, parents cannot make an arbitrary choice on the issue, let alone society,” it recommends. “Instead, medical science should act with purely therapeutic ends, and intervene in the least invasive fashion, on the basis of objective parameters and with a view to establishing the person’s constitutive identity.”

Retelling the Genesis story of God creating humans in his image as men and women, the document calls for a reaffirming of “the metaphysical roots of sexual difference.”

Of course Pope Francis didn’t sign the document.  The document makes too much sense so why would he?

It is nice to see the biggest Christian institution push back on this.  Setting aside Catholic/non-Catholic differences, all Christians need to unite.  We are at a dangerous time in society and infighting is not going to help at all.  Western Civilization is under attack, and Christendom, being the main pillar of the West, must band together to try and take back what is ours.  We as Christians also need to be more vocal about uncomfortable topics like gender theory and transgenderism.  Staying silent to some shows complicity and approval.  It allows these ideas to slowly creep in; subtly at first but eventually growing in confidence and strength as they gain more ground.  Stand firm in what you believe.  Be vocal.  It is not an act of love to watch someone do something harmful to themselves and encourage it.  Just like it is not an act of love to encourage an alcoholic to continue drinking, it is doing the individual no favors if we encourage them to mutilate his or her body as if it was something completely normal and acceptable.  Love sometimes requires telling difficult truths to those we care about.

Let this also serve as a stark warning that what you may take for granted in what our schools are teaching our children may not line up at all with what they are actually teaching.  This was a document for Catholic schools.  There are some horrendous things going on in public schools right now that many parents would be outraged if they discovered this is what their children are being taught.  Do you really want your 10 year old daughter competing in a condom race to see how quickly they can put on a condom?  Do you think it just ends there?  What do you think a school putting these events on is teaching your children about sex education?

It sounds cliche but our children really are the future.  At such a young age their minds are the most malleable, and the values and ideas that are instilled into them now serve as a foundation for how they conduct themselves and live the rest of their lives.  If we allow our educational system to plant seeds of degeneracy and teach values contrary to Western Civilization and contra Christian values they will never learn what truth and beauty are, and never gain the crucial faculties to combat the evil that they will be bombarded with every step of the way.

About Pride Month…

Doesn’t it feel like every other month is pride month?  At what point can we pump the brakes and treat these people like everyone else?  Is it possible to not have to glorify behavior which many people think is completely degenerate and corrosive to society?

CorporatePride

There’s a difference between allowing two consenting adults to do what they want to each other in privacy.  It is another thing to have it flaunted in front of you at every turn and be guilted into accepting their behavior.  Or worse, being forced to have your children indoctrinated into their perversions, whether it’s taught in schools or thrown in front of your face via parades and gigantic corporations virtue signaling how tolerant they are.

Tolerance of anything and everything is not a virtue.  It is evil.  It is how we’ve gone from letting two consenting adults do what they want to each other in the privacy of their own homes to having drag kids.  It is how we’ve gotten to the point where you can’t even bring up scientific studies that show that homosexuals are abused far more as children.  Where we can’t even point to science to even ask the question whether perhaps homosexuality is driven by trauma and the environment one lives in.  Now you are automatically vilified if you don’t immediately assume homosexuality is genetic.

It is becoming clear that because of toleration we have opened the floodgates.  It is everywhere.  Watch the above video.  He cites polls showing twice as many millennials identify as some sort of LGBTQ+ than other age groups.  At what point will people start to question whether this is because people are now comfortable to come out versus very real changes actually occurring based on a shift in psyche?  And how far are we willing to allow it to slide?  As I’ve said many times before, the next step down the ladder of degeneracy will be to try and normalize pedophilia.

84b5

It is actually possible to tolerate what two people do in private without ceding your entire society because of it.  Walk around Seattle or Portland and you still see rainbow signs with “Safe space” for LGBTQ+ nonsense.  Newsflash: they are safe everywhere in this country nowadays.  Gimme a break.  The pendulum has swung so ridiculously far in their direction that no longer is accepting them enough anymore.  If you’re not fawning constantly you are somehow a homophobic bigot.  So far has the pendulum swung that it is a huge plus if you are LGBT-whatever when applying for jobs.  It is an asset at this point.

It isn’t brave or edgy to side with LGBTQ+ like they want you to believe.  When multi-billion dollar corporations are on your side what you’re doing is none of the above.  What is brave is standing up against the tide of this degeneracy.  Only when people start to stand up and speak what they believe, rather than cower in silence, which on some level is tacitly submitting, will anything change.  More people agree with us than you’d think.  It’s the silent majority thing all over again.

Again, this isn’t a call to arms or anything like that.  Good Christians should love their enemy and their neighbor.  Look at it in a different light.  Perhaps if this really is more nurture rather than nature something can be done.  Pray for these people.  Many have gone through horrific trauma as children.  Now, if they want to change, and if people are willing to repent, good things can happen.  What won’t help is pretending like this slide into degeneracy and worse is somehow acceptable and totally normal and okay or in any way good.

A great conversation between JT and JLP

Jared Taylor and Jesse Lee Peterson had a great conversation recently on Renaissance Radio.  It seems to be one of the very few podcasts from RR not on YouTube…I can’t image why…but it can be found in its entirety here.  But a small snippet is included below.  It is refreshing to hear two Christians, one white and one African-American, have a frank discussion on difficult topics that are essentially verboten today.  I don’t necessarily agree with either one entirely on every take, but one they both agree on and that I think all of us can agree on is that government subsistence to African-Americans has done them zero favors.  They went from physical enslavement to a mental enslavement of sorts.  When self-responsibility is taken away, and you are taught that you are a victim, there is nothing you can do, and <insert group here> are the people to blame for your current lot in life, evil and derision will abound.

Jesse is not afraid to take on other “uncomfortable” topics head on like family structure, feminism, voting, and President Trump.  He attributes many of our nation’s problems to a lack of Christianity.  Take a listen of the small 4′ clip below for a taste.

Thanks, white men!

The Guardian put out this piece after the landmark decision in Alabama to ban abortion outright (other than serious threats to the woman’s health).  As if they are fighting for some grave injustice here.

Alabama’s new law mandating an almost blanket ban on abortion, the strictest in the United States, was passed by this group of exclusively white, male politicians.

The Alabama law will disproportionately affect black and poor women, because they are more likely to seek abortions, and less likely to have resources to obtain an abortion out-of-state.

Of the 27 Republicans, all white men, that dominate the 35-seat Alabama senate, 25 voted to pass the bill late on Tuesday.

This is what the Republican leadership group in the senate looks like, as presented on their caucus’s website:

<insert picture of heroic white men saving babies here>

There are only four women in the Alabama senate, who are among the eight-strong Democratic party minority in the upper chamber of the state legislature.

Two Republicans did not vote.

The legislation makes abortion a crime at any stage of pregnancy, with the only exception for a serious threat to the health of the woman.

This is how far we’ve come, where this rag of a news outlet can publish this article as if they are the heroes here by outing the white men who voted to ban abortion in Alabama.  As if you needed a diverse constituent of people to agree that killing babies is a bad thing.  Somehow I don’t think these feral leftists would have blamed Hillary Clinton, had she been elected president, to make a decision to start World War III with Russia given that all those men, fighting because of her decision, would die because of the decision of a woman.  But what do I know.

We need to stop cowering anytime the abortion question comes up in conversation.  We are not in the wrong for being pro-life.  They’re fighting to have the right to kill unborn children.  As someone reminded me recently, we are fighting against people who want to kill unborn children, who never had any say in life, but they will fight to abolish the death penalty for people who made conscious decisions to destroy other people’s lives.  Welcome to clown world.  Honk honk.  The next time you hear the “her body, her choice” argument calmly remind them that they made a choice to give their body away to somebody.  They made their choice.  Now they should act like adults and deal with the consequences.  I know, I know.  You may not be able to party all night and get blackout drunk once you have a kid.  What a Greek tragedy.

Birth rates continue to plummet in the West

They have declined across the board, save for women over 35.  The entire report from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics can be found here.  Here’s a snippet from the results:

The provisional number of births for the United States in 2018 was 3,788,235, down 2% from 2017 and the lowest number of births in 32 years.  The general fertility rate was 59.0 per 1,000 women aged 15-44, down 2% from 2017 and another record low for the United States.  The total fertility rate declined 2% to 1,728.0 per 1,000 women in 2018, another record low for the nation.  Birth rates declined for nearly all age groups of women under 35, but rose for women in their late 30s and early 40s.  The birth rate for teenagers aged 15-19 was down 7% in 2018 to 17.4 births per 1,000 women; rates declined for both younger (aged 15-17) and older (aged 18-19) teenagers.

While the birth rate overall dropping tells a story, what’s actually important is the birth rate by race.  Babies born in America aren’t magically a new race that is “American” so the total birth rate doesn’t really matter if a large portion of the country does not want to adhere to the standards and principles the country was founded on anyway.  Non-hispanic whites continue to lag behind, exacerbating the problem of what will soon be a majority non-white country.  But the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 won’t change the demographics of the country, right?  Not surprisingly, they don’t give the race statistics in the same way as every other statistic they cite.  Instead of telling us the birth rate by race, they simply supply the raw numbers.  This is a ploy.  Non-hispanic whites had more overall births, just over twice as many births as Hispanics, but when you consider non-Hispanic whites make up about 65% of the population and Hispanics just under 20% that tells quite a different story on who is breeding in larger numbers, by a noticeable margin.  People will continue to pretend they do not care or that this does not matter.  Just remember that when the percentages flip.  And remember where these people came from and how they ran their governments in their home countries.  This is what we have to look forward to.

In an age where we are told to live for today, who cares about tomorrow, YOLO, etc, it is not surprising to see birth rates continue to drop in the West.  Christianity, which instills a mentality of planting seeds today for trees under which you will never enjoy the shade, has continued to be attacked and removed.  This, perhaps more than any other factor, has decimated birth rates too.  We have grown fat and lazy, indulge way too much in entertainment and other useless vices, and have grown complacent.  It is easy to see the mentality of “who wants the responsibility of kids” when there’s so much other entertainment and distraction out there.  Couple this with back-breaking taxes and the near impossibility of buying a house that won’t steep you in debt for 30 years and it only gets worse.  The only people who benefit from having more kids are those on welfare, further sucking the financial life out of hard-working people.

Sadly, the other factor nobody wants to talk about is the declining birth rate as women become more educated and work more.  One would hope we could have both, but clearly that is not happening.  If people were willing to have an open and honest conversation about this, perhaps something could be done about it.  Men and women age-wise might be better off taking different approaches to education and a career.  Might it not make more sense for women to marry and have kids before investing 10+ years in higher education and establishment in the workforce?  Is it even possible to wonder if this is a possibility without some people flipping out?  Just throwing it out there.

These birth rate trends cannot, and will not, last.  When the economic system finally becomes overloaded due to the combination of increased debt spending, yoking earners with ever more financial responsibility for those sucking off the government tit through welfare programs, and the demographic flip, the collapse will not be pretty.  And the longer it is put off the more it will hurt.

While this all sounds dour, there is hope.  At least for Christians.  That is one of the many beautiful things about Christianity; hope.  We are long overdue for a major correction.  It will come in the form of economic collapse and war.  Over 100 million immigrants and their descendants have come here since 1965 slowly eroding away the fabric of the country.  Eventually it will break.  Now is the time to move to a place and around people you can associate with and build strong communities.  Christians need to band together.  The inevitable loss of entertainment and “easy times” will help pave the way to higher birth rates, and honestly would it be such a bad thing to not be so globally connected and lost in our smart phones all day?  Strong, local, communities will spring up.  New nations will rise.

China poised for a big future

Reading stuff like this and it is obvious to see that China will be in a much stronger position in the world pecking order as the American Empire continues to crumble.

It is 14 degrees the morning two dozen boys gather at a Beijing park to be transformed into alpha males. A reluctant winter sun casts silver light between treacherously cold shadows. The wind bites, worsening nerves as the boys — the youngest 7 — prepare to strip to their waists for a run.

One of the watching mothers is worried. She wants her son to grow into a macho male, but it’s so cold. She tells him he can keep his shirt on, or perhaps skip the run through Olympic Forest Park.

This is the kind of “feminine” parenting that coach Tang Haiyan fears can ruin boys. Tang, a former schoolteacher, founded the Real Man Training Club to combat what he and others in China see as a masculinity crisis — part of a backlash against the makeup- and earring-wearing male TV, film and pop idols who have gained immense popularity here.

“If you are promoting these effeminate figures,” Tang said, “it’s a calamity for our country.”

In a nation where men dominate political and business leadership and campaigns for gender equality have gained little traction, the debate over what is “effeminate” has become a popular pastime among older conservative residents, and mostly among men.

Influenced by K-pop idols in Korea, China’s boy bands and celebrities — with their delicate beauty, dyed hair and haute couture wardrobes — have a massive following among women here. But China’s state-run media condemns the young idols, calling them “sissy pants” and “fresh young meat.”

The backlash deepened after a back-to-school TV program featured the boy band F4. Angry parents attacked the Education Ministry’s decision to hold up the cosmetics-wearing young men as role models; state media warned that a “sick” and “decadent” culture threatened the future of the nation. This year, a Chinese videostreaming website started blurring earrings worn by men.

“The gender stereotyping is not just about gender identity itself,” said an author and researcher on Chinese masculinity. “It’s about the reproduction of the nation and how to properly cultivate the next generation.”

It shows you just how far behind we’ve fallen when you read something like this.  Think about the outrage half of our population would have if we even suggested doing something like this.  If you subscribe to the r/K Theory China is definitely going K-selected faster than we are.  Couple that with not having to worry about the effects of diversity and multiculturalism and it could give you an idea of how the balance of power may change over the next 10-20 years, if even that long.

More “progress” in Canada

This is what passes for pride and progress these days.

Commemorative loonie marking progress for LGBTQ2 people unveiled in Toronto

TORONTO — The Royal Canadian Mint unveiled a commemorative loonie Tuesday to mark what it called a key milestone for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and two-spirited people, with the government saying the coin symbolized progress while highlighting the work that still needs to be done to advance equality.

Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau was amongst a number of dignitaries who gathered in Toronto to unveil the new one-dollar coin that pays tribute to Parliament’s passing of legislation that “initiated the decriminalization of homosexuality in Canada” in 1969.

The coin, which is now in circulation, combines the words “Equality-Egalite” with the work of Vancouver-based artist Joe Average.

“For too long, people didn’t listen. They didn’t extend compassion or empathy or understanding,” Morneau said. “Because of that, years ago, people made it a crime to love in Canada. We made being yourself a punishable offence.”

Morneau also acknowledged the views of those who’ve said the coin’s theme suggests the work to achieve equality is complete.

“They recognize, as we should all recognize, that we are not at the end of this path,” he said. “We have much more to do.”

I must be behind the times, I didn’t realize they added a ‘2’ to the LGBTQSDDFSKLJZXCVHLKJHFSD or whatever it is these days.  What is a “two-spirited person” anyways?  Nevermind.  I don’t want to know.

loonie

The new loonie.  Stinks.  Is this new coinage in Canada or Egypt?

“Joe Average” isn’t joking when he says they have much more work to do.  You didn’t really think they’d stop and be happy with just being able to practice sodomy in their homes, did you?  They won’t be happy until it pervades ALL of our culture.  Until it’s taught as normal in schools.  And it’ll get worse.  I’m telling you right now some day some years from now pedophilia will be foisted onto us.  It already is.  Given how much we have tolerated already it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they’re trying.  Frankly, unless we push back extremely hard, they may get their way.  They’re already making inroads.  Lots of articles have been published on this and the uproar even for those isn’t as loud as it should be.

Bach – Mass in B Minor performed in Notre Dame de Paris

One of music’s greatest achievements played in one of the West’s most prized locations.  Christianity inspired both.  Here’s one way the piece was described:

The Mass was described in the 19th century by the editor Hans Georg Nägeli as “The Announcement of the Greatest Musical Work of All Times and All People” (“Ankündigung des größten musikalischen Kunstwerkes aller Zeiten und Völker”).[41]

Update: Well, they took down the one performed in Notre Dame.  Censoring seemingly everything about Notre Dame hard.  Even classical music.  Awesome.  Here’s another version of the same piece.  Unfortunately not the same venue.

California: A Degenerate Playground for Adults

California may be the epicenter for the societal decay going on in the West right now.  California is a perverted version of Neverland for adults.  Nobody there wants to grow up.  The pursuit of pleasure and escape from reality is the main motivator for far more adults there than many would think.

People are waiting longer and longer to get married, if they get married at all.  California has the 7th highest age for women to get married, behind other liberal dens of degeneration like New York, Massachusetts, and Washington DC (though not a state, this was the highest age for all women, at 30).  You may wonder why that matters.  Well, when women put off child-rearing that late, the chances they will even try to have kids at all surely declines the older a woman gets.  Couple that with the phenomena of “dog moms” and you have a recipe for generational disaster.  What’s a dog mom, you ask?  Peruse any dating app in California and you are inevitably inundated with dog moms, or women who own dogs and proclaim themselves as dog moms.  They call them their babies.  You can see women stop each other on the street fawning over each other’s dogs the way mothers used to do this with babies.  It’s almost as if they’re trying to satiate an innate urge deep down…but what do I know.  Biology is a social construct, right?  My theory on this is they have that motherly urge, but having a child is too much responsibility in their eyes, and plus who wants to put on all that extra weight, amirite?  It’s so much easier to be a career woman and only have to walk and take care of a dog when you get home from work anyways.  This may sound harsh, but this is the state of things.

Guys aren’t any better.  You can see dudes over 40 years old skateboarding everywhere in the coastal California cities.  Grown adults of both genders zip around on those electric scooters and bikes.  Then after a long day of work, if one has a job, what better way to relax and unwind than smoking a bowl on the beach maaaan?  “It’s 4:20 somewhere” is a common billboard you’ll see everywhere.  Marijuana billboards dot the landscape.  Advertising to adults to smoke weed to help…your hangover.

marijuana.billboard.pesky.hangover

Again, many will say “are all these things really that big a deal?”.  “Why does it matter?”

Yes, it does matter.  When you’ve raised a whole generation or two to endlessly pursue only pleasure, in the YOLO generation, it does effect the fabric of society.  We may not feel it right away, much like we didn’t feel the effects of tolerating all sorts of perversion and bad behavior right away, in a still largely Christian society, but we are starting to see and feel it.  The pursuit of pleasure as an ultimate endpoint is empty.  It is not gratifying.  More young adults are on anti-depressants than ever before.  Single women, if not dog moms, buy cats to fill that empty void.

I’m sure California isn’t the only place with this issue of adults who never really grew up, but in a place with near perfect weather and cushy benefits to those who do not work, the problem is probably worse there than most other places.  Perfect weather, the epicenter of the porn industry, lax drug laws, and a liberal mentality that takes all responsibility off of the people of the state, and you have a recipe for disaster.

Not to beat a dead horse here, but it does require constant reminding, and the idea needs to spread in general, that Western civilization fundamentally depends on Christianity.  Without it, we do not have a western society.  Connect the dots.  Contrast the ultimate aim of a Christian to that of one who feels there is no higher purpose and that there is nothing beyond this life.  Without that higher calling, it is easy to see how one could fall into the “you only live once” mentality.  Christians fundamentally have longer time preferences.  Longer time preferences enable the ability to delay gratification.  Christianity encourages family building (go forth and multiply).  When you have a family, and you have children who depend on you, your purpose becomes greater than yourself.  You want to leave the world a better place than the way you inherited it so your children can live better lives.  And this is passed on from generation to generation.  It sounds so simple, so obvious, but look how far we’ve strayed from this.  It’s no wonder there are more homeless people today and more people on welfare today than ever before.  California cities are filthy.  San Diego sidewalks reek of piss everywhere.  You can download an app to report human feces in the streets of San Francisco.

Liberal paradise

When you have nobody but yourself to live for, what point is there to save up money if you aren’t going to pass it on to anybody?  Who cares if you suck off the tit of the state?  And when you take no responsibility for your actions, and don’t care about future generations because “whatever, I won’t be alive for it anyway”, it is easy to see how people could vote for policies that literally kill off future generations (look up how many abortions have been performed) and be okay with allowing anyone and everyone to come into the country unchecked, legally or illegally.  If you think there’s nothing beyond this life it becomes awfully easy to justify bad behavior.  So yes, it does matter.
