Potty Wars-2017

Friday, February 24, AD 2017

 

Last year the Obama administration attempted to coerce public schools into allowing mentally ill people who believe they are, or should be, the opposite sex from what their DNA says that they are, to use the bathrooms of the opposite sex.   The Trump administration reversed this yesterday leaving it to local and state governments to decide.  From the way this was reported in the mainstream media one might have thought that the world was coming to an end.  Of all the very mad policies embraced by the left none are madder than the belief that sex is an artificial construct and that people, at their whim, may adopt the sex that they prefer, biology be hanged.  This absurdity has become a core article of faith for the left, and that explains the fury with which common sense is met in this area by those on the port side of our politics.  This has little to do with that sad handful of the population who are mislabeled “transgender” and everything to do with the leftist war against reality.

  • it seems that “Kaitlyn” Jenner is upset with President Trump. boo-hooo . . .

    The Congress didn’t vote for it. The Ninth Circus didn’t invent the Constitutional right for it. So, your former Chairman Obama dictated it. Then, threatened to cut-off US education funds from school districts that did not OBEY.

    FYI, liberals comparing girls’ locker rooms to (whites-only) drinking fountains is total nonsense.

    Thank God for small mercies. Each day, we are reminded that evil idiots have got to act like evil idiots.

  • The crime of assault is a violation of peaceable assembly. Striking fear and anxiety into the hearts of minor un-emancipated children, a captive audience of the state, is the crime of assault. Victimizing minor children who have no recourse to a safe place in their privacy is kidnapping by the state.
    It is said that Kennedy put a man on the moon. Obama put a man in a woman’s toilet.
    The law Obama made using Title IX makes the state liable, criminally liable, for every crime committed against every citizen under Obama’s dictate.

  • T. Shaw: Public schools act “in loco parentis” in the place of parents through power of attorney. Tax money belongs to the taxpayers even as the tax money is administered by the administration. Therefore denying any “FEDERAL” money to the states for education is embezzlement by the state.

  • I have always thought that “Life of Brian” clip to be among the best antidotes to this insanity. Last year, I saw an article about a “man” giving birth. The woman who thought she was a man was planning to have her breasts removed when she found out that she was pregnant. The author of the article never got around to asking why, if this woman thought she was a man, was she having vaginal sex? “Mental illness” is right.

Potty War: Massachusetts Declares War on Reality

Friday, June 3, AD 2016

Courtesy of the second most Catholic state in the Union:

 

Though opponents chanted “No” outside their doors earlier in the day, the Massachusetts House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to pass a transgender public accommodations bill on Wednesday

The 116-36 vote was announced just before 6 p.m. to resounding applause inside the House chamber, following a long day of debate and attempts to amend the bill.

Like a similar bill passed by the state Senate earlier this month, the legislation would offer transgender people protections from discrimination at public accommodations like restaurants and malls, and allows people to use the restroom or locker room that matches their gender identity.

    I bet Massachusetts’ state finances are on the brink of bankruptcy. So, they must toot whatever horn the idiot drones (academia, media, idiotic liberals – I repeat myself) buzz at and avoid addressing the imminent, unsolvable disasters they have wrought.

  • All of this crap comes from the Eastern Seaboard, the West Coast and Chicago. Of course our council of Catholic bishops is a joke, and a bad one.

  • Brains have been flowing down through necks, and taking hearts along for the journey for years, to this end, where plumbers will be called to follow new regulations. Numbskull is a helpful word for thoughts on such diversions developing to eliminate common sense, and especially God’s Law.

    will accumulate teachers and will stop listening to the truth
    and will be diverted to myths….”

    Thank you!?

  • I am thinking about the practical aspects of this. Christians will no longer be able to hold many government jobs including in the K-12 state run government schools in the state of Massachusetts. How can they if, as part of their daily job duties, they are required to present & reinforce such lies to innocent children. This means there should be many Christians teachers leaving the public schools. This means there will be many teachers available to teach in private schools and/or provide services to homeschoolers.

    I am hoping that Christian teachers file an mass lawsuit against policies that would require them to lose their jobs when they are unable to help brain wash children with lies. Literally it is discrimination against Christians based on their religious faith.

  • “Emotions/feelings/bu!!$#I! matter. The Biology, Truth, Reality only matter when they support the agenda, which is to destroy the two main obstacles to complete state control: faith and family.”

    Tyrannical govt control at the most intimate levels of our lives & moral responsibilities are indeed the purpose behind these things being pushed.

  • Obama may indeed be insane but what of his numerous supporters?

  • William P. Walsh

    The Cult of personality is a funny thing.

    As long as the kings subjects are “feeling” a sense of belonging, the actions of the King don’t matter much. Not until the King/queen tells them to “eat cake,” as they starve in the street.

    Coming to a nation near you.

  • The current King says, “Let them eat statistics”. He touts 4% unemployment with over 90 million out of the workforce. Thus Trump.

  • He is not insane, he is Communist.

  • Plausibly so. But perhaps communists are insane. Communism is insanity in action.

  • Barak Hussein has a reprobate mind. A reprobate mind (Romans 1) is unable to take 1+1 and get it equal 2 according to God’s law. When a reprobate mind calculates 1+1, they can get it to equal less than 2 or more than 2, but never 2.

  • Reading the First Chapter of Saint Paul’s Epistle to the Romans verses 18 through 32 is like reviewing a collage of current events taken from the evening news.

  • William P. Walsh.

    So true.
    Many claim to be wise today yet are completely foolish. They “invent ways of doing evil.”. Good call Mr. Walsh. The dirty laundry list mentioned is fitting perfectly for our time. The next chapter is interesting as well. Chpt. 2:13;”For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.”

    We must try by our lives to plant seeds in the hearts of those who know not God, nor His commands. We must keep our hands on the plow and never look back, knowing that the sod is tough and rocky, but the one who cultivates, fertilizers, warms and rains on the seed will see to it that the harvest is plentiful.
    Doing our share is a glory for God and neighbor. How trying the times, but how glorious the reward.

  • The progressive elites and their idiotic minions, e.g. MA Legisl. and Bruce Springsberg, execrate the truth and spit on the beliefs of (estimated) 230 million unliberalized Americans.
    .
    This insanity is the latest in a long list of liberal outrages against which the establishment GOP (we elected) responded with cowardly silence.
    .
    The dastards are going in for the kill of our faith, our families and our way of life. Kiss goodbye to all of it.

    They are winning because people don’t speak or act. And, because they won’t be persecuted if they keep their mouths shut.

Potty War-A Continuing Series

Paul Mirengoff at Powerline brings us the latest development in the Potty War:

 

 

Maya Dillard Smith, interim director of the Georgia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, has resigned over the ACLU’s position on who can use which public restrooms. The resignation occurred after her two daughters were traumatized by encountering men in the women’s restroom. Dillard Smith explained:

I have shared my personal experience of having taken my elementary school age daughters into a women’s restroom when shortly after three transgender young adults, over six feet [tall] with deep voices, entered. My children were visibly frightened, concerned about their safety and left asking lots of questions for which I, like many parents, was ill-prepared to answer.

Dillard Smith complained that the ACLU has become “a special interest organization that promotes not all, but certain progressive rights” and that the “hierarchy of rights” the ACLU chooses to defend or ignore is “based on who is funding the organization’s lobbying activities.” Further expressing her disillusionment, Dillard Smith stated:

I understood it to be the ACLU’s goal to delicately balance competing rights to ensure that any infringements are narrowly tailored, that they do not create a hierarchy of rights, and that we are mindful of unintended consequences. I believe there are solutions that can provide accommodations for transgender people and balance the need to ensure women and girls are safe from those who might have malicious intent.

Unfortunately, as she has learned, Dillard Smith’s view of the ACLU bears little relation to reality. The ACLU’s goal — like that of the LGBT movement — is to shove a radical agenda down the throats of the American people, not to balance rights and find reasonable accommodations.

  • And the left wonders at the popularity of a Donald Trump.

    The edict mongering whore infesting the White House has ushered in parasites to his liking and Americans who believe in Jesus Christ and abide in the Holy Bible are going to just sit this one out?

    Trump may eventually become worse than the current Muslim in Chief, but for folks to demand change because of this ongoing overreach and support a Trump tells me that the American people, less the mindless left, are fed up, sick and tired of political correctness.

    My guess. Just a few steps away from civil discord, that’s what the crackhead and chief have lead us to.

    His name will go down in infamy.
    Just a turd in a suit.

    As for this insane toilet trash?

    Carry your gun. Legally that is.
    A disturbed man who can’t control his desires or distinguish between what sex he is, is a ticking time bomb. Mental illness might be okay with Obama but to hell with him if he doesn’t see the writing on the wall.
    We will protect our own, at ALL Costs.

    btw. I wouldn’t wish my worse enemy to go to hell. They, however, make their own choices to go. Obama’s made his choice. Bastard.

  • The so called most progressive people think that there is discrimation if males are not permitted to use famales’ bathroom. They believe that every one has body,limbs and genitals and so if one looks at others it is in order. When so much freedom is allowed in western nations which claim to have civilization the use of bath rooms by any sex should be encouraged and let there be nothing hidden. It is a philosophy and some are votaries of the new ideas.

  • A civilization whose govering elites are incapable of discerning and declaring what male and female is has come to its conclusion.. A civilization showing for this degree of absurdity has shown itseld to be decadent beyond long-term viability. If we do not reverse course fairly quickly by sidelining these people from all positions of leadership and governance we will be witnessing frightful times ahead.

    It ALL started with abortion, when people trumped truth and told us what was and wasn’t life; then marriage; now sexual differentiation. It will never end.

  • Every single thinking sane person who is upset about this insanity and all the other insanities of this off-the-wall adm. need to get out and engage their liberal friends and family members in conversation about the election. Prepare wisely and sharpen your skills. Or else the price we pay is that we will descend as a nation into much darker places. Don’t think it can’t happen here. Observe our descent since the Clintons and Obamas ramrodded their unconstitutional agendas down our throats. We are on the edge of an abyss.

  • “It will never end.” No, Jam Bo, it will end. You already gave the answer: “A civilization whose governing elites are incapable of discerning…has come to its conclusion.. A civilization showing this degree of absurdity has shown itself to be decadent beyond long-term viability. If we do not reverse course fairly quickly…we will be witnessing frightful times ahead.” But those times WILL end too.

    I agree with you.
    The tragic times will end too!
    Abortion will be looked upon as just one depravity of many from an ugly past.
    I mention to others that this time is meant for you and me. This is our time to be NON conforming to the age. We stand up and out from the P.C. crowd because we’ve been chosen for this exact time and this exact place. Chosen to live the Gospel messages regardless of poor teachers that find Mercy in adherence to sinful activity. We are not bought and paid for by any governmental assistance or tax advantages.
    We are property of Christ the King.
    No edict nor popular fashion will win our hearts. Only Truth will WIN.
    In the end the Immaculate Heart of Mary will Triumph.

Potty War

Friday, May 13, AD 2016

 

The Obama administration has declared war on all Americans who believe that public rest rooms should be divided by sex. Ostensibly to accommodate the estimated, likely an over estimate, 0.3% of Americans who are mentally ill and who desperately wish to pretend that they are the opposite sex, the increasingly Orwellian Department of Justice and Department of Education sent out a letter to all public school districts requiring them, with the implicit threat of taking away public funding, to allow such individuals to use the bathrooms they wish to use.  Thus a boy who wishes to be a girl must be allowed to use the girls’ restroom.  Schools may not require any proof that the individual wishing to use an opposite sex restroom has any medical history indicating that they are “transgender”.

You will frequently hear from the Left that no crimes have been committed as a result of allowing biological men access to female restrooms.  Go here to read proof that they are lying.

Is all this upheaval really about making allowance for such a small percentage of the population?  Of course not.  This is part of the ongoing war of the Left against the reality that God made us male and female, and that the vast majority of men and women are quite happy with that Divine arrangement.  Any stick that can be wielded against the reality of sex differences is eagerly seized upon by an increasingly deranged Left to reshape reality to match their ideology.  If women and girls are raped in the process, well that is just too bad.

  • In no way do I wish to minimize the physical security issues, but the Truth is the bigger issue.

    Gnosticism is back. The truth that our bodies our good, and we cannot wish them to change their nature, because we were created this way, is a fundamental attack on reality. This is an attack on civilization. A boy cannot become a girl. A girl cannot become a boy.

    This is really much worse than the safety issue because what is happening is that your young child will be told by the school teachers and admins that he or she can choose his/her sxe. He will also be told if he doesn’t believe that, he’s a bigot. And his parents are bigots. and then need help and re education.

    And then he will be told he must call a boy She if he so desires. And we will have lost Reality and the Truth, and the Father of Lies will have Spread so many and expect you to spread so many more.

    Male and female, He made them. This truth is now hate speech.

    What is Good conforms to reality. Again, hate speech.

    See the article about the re education dn punishment of those who don’t use the correct pronouns.

  • Gnosticism never went away Alice. “For God knows that when you eat of it [i.e. the Tree of Knowlege (gk. Gnosis) of Good and Evil] your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

    I’ve had a lesbian proponent of same-sex pseudogamy quote that at me as if it were a good thing because she thought it supported her “argument” for transcending traditional morality in favor of the so-called new morality. True Story.

  • Pure madness!

    Isn’t it interesting that public bathrooms are prohibited from using surveillance cameras as a tool to thwart crimes, and help solve crimes.

    So “they” are setting up the worse case possible scenario. Mentality disturbed sexual deviants to be allowed to hang out while your daughters are making a visit.

    From now on we shall introduce a new synonym that must be used while having a bowel movement. That is; an Obama.
    Examples. 1) After a good cup of coffee I sit down to take an Obama. 2). Look out Susan, you almost stepped in a pile of Obama.

    Absurd? Not really. Not when compared to the absurdities of the worse administration and President in History. Oh oh…gotta go take an Obama.

    What would Phinehas of Numbers chapter 25 do?

    6 And behold, one of the people of Israel came and brought a Mid′ianite woman to his family, in the sight of Moses and in the sight of the whole congregation of the people of Israel, while they were weeping at the door of the tent of meeting. 7 When Phin′ehas the son of Elea′zar, son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose and left the congregation, and took a spear in his hand 8 and went after the man of Israel into the inner room, and pierced both of them, the man of Israel and the woman, through her body. Thus the plague was stayed from the people of Israel.

    What would Mattathias of 1st Maccabees chapter 2 do?
    .
    23 When he had finished speaking these words, a Jew came forward in the sight of all to offer sacrifice upon the altar in Mo′de-in, according to the king’s command. 24 When Mattathi′as saw it, be burned with zeal and his heart was stirred. He gave vent to righteous anger; he ran and killed him upon the altar. 25 At the same time he killed the king’s officer who was forcing them to sacrifice, and he tore down the altar. 26 Thus he burned with zeal for the law, as Phin′ehas did against Zimri the son of Salu.
    .
    Whether Clinton or Trump is elected in November, such action may be necessary in order to protect our women-folk (yes, I know some of you women are stronger than many men and don’t need protection, but it’s a foolishly suicidal society which fails to place women and children first, and a man’s proper place is in being responsible for his loved ones, as both Phinehas and Mattathias knew).

  • In May 1961, JFK committed the US to put a man on the Moon before the decade ended. In May 2016, Obama committed the US to put men and boys in the girls locker room. That pretty much says it all.

    I was very surprised that Himself didn’t have and ending similar to JFK’s.

    I don’t wish it.
    I want him to suffer the future he helped to destroy… I want him to see his daughters suffer the pain of bad policy…. God forbid the pain comes from a bathroom.

  • The transgendered male has freely chosen to be castrated. Gender Identity, on the other hand, are males wearing dresses to cover their male organs, say, like me telling everyone that I feel like the president so the government must let me use the Oval Office toilet for my duty. Gender Identity being forced on the privacy of the public are un-castrated males wearing women’s clothing to cover their male organs and being allowed by law to shower, use locker rooms and toilets with minor girls and our daughters.
    Obama has threatened to withhold Federal money, our tax money from any and all public schools that refuse to allow un-castrated males dressed as girls into girls’ showers, locker rooms and toilets.
    Again, how is this freedom?

  • The students have names and ought to be called by their names, first and last, or reminded of their station in life by their titles, Oh, that’s right, Miss, Mrs. Mr. and Sir have been banished long ago. Are the people to whom we entrust our children so lazy that they cannot remember a student’s name? Or is this a show of power? Or both?

  • Liberalism is much like alcoholism – the insanity of I – Self – Me: ISM.

  • Really this has been going on a long time- not so much about gender, but I remember they were calling kids names of animals instead of saying what they mean, I think the advanced third grade reading group was called bluebirds and the other groups were robins and something else. I’m sure no group was called crowd! Or blackbirds!

  • That way the kids weren’t s’posed to catch on that some people were better readers than others. .

Pope Addresses Our Truly Confused Age

Friday, December 28, AD 2012

 

 

We live in a time of technological wonders and “let’s pretend” denial of basic facts of the human condition.  Pope Benedict looked at one pernicious aspect of this “let’s pretend” mindset in an address on December 21:

 The Chief Rabbi of France, Gilles Bernheim, has shown in a very detailed and profoundly moving study that the attack we are currently experiencing on the true structure of the family, made up of father, mother, and child, goes much deeper. While up to now we regarded a false understanding of the nature of human freedom as one cause of the crisis of the family, it is now becoming clear that the very notion of being – of what being human really means – is being called into question. He quotes the famous saying of Simone de Beauvoir: “one is not born a woman, one becomes so” (on ne naît pas femme, on le devient). These words lay the foundation for what is put forward today under the term “gender” as a new philosophy of sexuality. According to this philosophy, sex is no longer a given element of nature, that man has to accept and personally make sense of: it is a social role that we choose for ourselves, while in the past it was chosen for us by society. The profound falsehood of this theory and of the anthropological revolution contained within it is obvious. People dispute the idea that they have a nature, given by their bodily identity, that serves as a defining element of the human being. They deny their nature and decide that it is not something previously given to them, but that they make it for themselves. According to the biblical creation account, being created by God as male and female pertains to the essence of the human creature. This duality is an essential aspect of what being human is all about, as ordained by God. This very duality as something previously given is what is now disputed. The words of the creation account: “male and female he created them” (Gen 1:27) no longer apply. No, what applies now is this: it was not God who created them male and female – hitherto society did this, now we decide for ourselves. Man and woman as created realities, as the nature of the human being, no longer exist. Man calls his nature into question. From now on he is merely spirit and will. The manipulation of nature, which we deplore today where our environment is concerned, now becomes man’s fundamental choice where he himself is concerned. From now on there is only the abstract human being, who chooses for himself what his nature is to be. Man and woman in their created state as complementary versions of what it means to be human are disputed. But if there is no pre-ordained duality of man and woman in creation, then neither is the family any longer a reality established by creation. Likewise, the child has lost the place he had occupied hitherto and the dignity pertaining to him. Bernheim shows that now, perforce, from being a subject of rights, the child has become an object to which people have a right and which they have a right to obtain. When the freedom to be creative becomes the freedom to create oneself, then necessarily the Maker himself is denied and ultimately man too is stripped of his dignity as a creature of God, as the image of God at the core of his being. The defence of the family is about man himself. And it becomes clear that when God is denied, human dignity also disappears. Whoever defends God is defending man.

  • Extraordinary letter!
    Thanks for the post.

    When Jesus asked the new followers; “What do you seek?”, my thoughts turned to the confused minority of deniers that struggle with their identity. Are they seeking to be equal to God? Are they saying God made a mistake, I decide what & who I am?

    Thank you for passing this along.

  • “Man calls his nature into question. From now on he is merely spirit and will.”

    It is remarkable how many self-professed materialists adopt a sort of Cartesian mind-body dualism that often really does amount to “a ghost in a machine,” in the hackneyed, but expressive phrase. Not only are they oblivious of the fact that “mind” is merely an hypostasised abstraction, they have even turned the humble reflexive pronoun “self” into the very ground of their existence.

    Is the concept of “rational animal” really too hard to grasp?

    I was alarmed recently by the disturbingly obvious parallels in Aldous Huxley’s “A Brave New World,” with much of the “social engineering” being carried out today by organizations like Planned Parenthood, and aided/fueled by the homosexual and communist agendas.

    1) The demand for the acceptance of the contraceptive mentality and more recent push for free contraceptives and abortion.
    2) The whole scale attempt to rob children of their innocence through graphic sex education programs beginning in elementary school
    3) The reversal of the virtues with PP’s recent instructional videos telling the youth that being a slut should by viewed positively
    4) The normalization of homosexuality and so called same sex “marriage”
    5) The undermining of parental authority and rights
    6) The proposal to replace Father and Mother with Parent 1 & Parent 2 on birth certificates
    And most importantly for their plan to work, remove God from the public sphere and undermine the moral authority of the Church.
    The list goes on and on, but I don’t want to stray far from the context of the Pope’s address. If they have their way, we’re headed for a Godless, parentless over-sexualized socialist society.
    Lord help us!

    Good line, DM.

    BTW friends; you may notice on some other internet forums that “gender” is listed for users. You will see a few listed viz: “I don’t have a gender, I have a sex”
    (Gender is a grammatical term). Small victory over PC. Let’s all do it.
