Orthodox Christians Must Now Learn To Live as Exiles in Our Own Country

It is what it is not what it ought to be.

Originally posted on TIME:

No, the sky is not falling — not yet, anyway — but with the Supreme Court ruling constitutionalizing same-sex marriage, the ground under our feet has shifted tectonically.

It is hard to overstate the significance of the Obergefell decision — and the seriousness of the challenges it presents to orthodox Christians and other social conservatives. Voting Republican and other failed culture war strategies are not going to save us now.

Discerning the meaning of the present moment requires sobriety, precisely because its radicalism requires of conservatives a realistic sense of how weak our position is in post-Christian America.

The alarm that the four dissenting justices sounded in their minority opinions is chilling. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Antonin Scalia were particularly scathing in pointing out the philosophical and historical groundlessness of the majority’s opinion. Justice Scalia even called the decision “a threat to democracy,” and denounced it, shockingly, in…

Hallelujah

I pray for people who have broken hearts and broken spirits about life to remember in all your sadness that Jesus loves you and he was not the one that hurt you. He awaits for all his chosen children to come sit in his lap again.

I read the Popes recent economic letter. It was well written but it seemed like a communist manifesto disguised as a letter of hope. It lacked substance. It lacked understanding of the suffering of the Church’s children. The Pope does not want to address the Antichrist of our time which is the Beast of Islam. I will address this further but not today because it will ruin my Mo Joe.

A rational, non-bigoted argument against gay marriage.

Part I
The thing which worries me about gay marriage is that the norms surrounding gay long-term relationships will be imported into the concept of marriage.

(The above is a media write-up of a study that found that in a study of 566 gay couples, only 45 percent had made the promise to be sexually monogamous. This is an example of a different moral norm surrounding gay long-term relationships.)

(In the above link is a NYTimes piece arguing that homosexual marriage could modernise (that is import different norms into) marriage as an institution.), specifically; “The traditional American marriage is in crisis, and we need insight,” he said, citing the fresh perspective gay couples bring to matrimony. “If innovation in marriage is going…

Death = Freedom

This is very true and inspirational.

But life isn’t hard to manage when you’ve nothing to lose.” – Ernest Hemingway

Fearing death is instinctive. While fear of death stems from a variety of causes, there are a few common themes: fear of the after-life; fear of leaving behind loved ones; unattained goals; fear of not experiencing enough; and fear of not leaving behind a legacy. Most people don’t regularly think about their death; everyone knows it’s going to happen but it’s not imminent. Nevertheless, people are concerned with how they will be viewed once they leave this earth. The truth is that unless you are part of the .01% of people whose legacies will (maybe) live on forever, you will eventually be forgotten. Your name and everything you have accomplished in your life will be lost. Instead of feeling fear, I find this truth incredibly liberating.

Living my life based on others’ expectations is something…

Breaking: Scores Injured in Massive Taiwan Water Park Explosion

ladydonnalands:

Wow, how could you know?

Originally posted on 2012 The Awakening:

Ed Note: When I saw this story I immediately visited JumpingJackFlashHypothesis.blogspot.com/ to see if this story was posted and could be related to Earth’s ever increasing methane/hydrogen sulfide expulsion. But unfortunately no stories from June 27th were published yet. Yet, peruing thru the events that took place on June 26th listed under “Fires and Explosions” it’s not hard to surmise Taiwan’s water park explosion was ignited by natural causes.

Yet I find it quite interesting how the fire is barely extinguished and reporters are claiming the explosion was linked to a “white powder”- when there’s absolutely been no time to carry-out an official investigation.

FYI…I’ve been following the above website since 2012. Over the last three years I’ve witnessed an exponential increase in the number of events listed under all categories and from my observations,  this appears to the number one threat to life on earth “as we know…

King BO Dingleberry

King BO Dingleberry is the wah wah whiner man.
He sways,struts, and fumbles whenever he can.
No steps forward and all ten steps back.
He shims and shams around his 8 bit track.
King BO Dingleberry, lies to our face.
We bend and bow in full disgrace.
He surrounds himself, with all his fools.
Better watch out- when he breaks all the rules.
King BO Dingleberry took all of us for a ride.
Beneath our noses, we took the big ole slide.
He betrayed us all with hope, change, and anew.
Fooling all the sheep, except for the fortunate few.
King BO Dingleberry walked in upon the stage.
He truly was all the Liberal Progressive rage.
We had all the video to make us cry.
We would rather live in the world of deny.
King BO Dingleberry took the chance.
To fool us all, in his lovely dance of romance.
His legacy is to be at his right hand and pleasure.
Look deep and see his hidden secret treasure.
King BO Dingleberry moves can truly be found.
If you focus upon the stupid merry-go-round.
He was never was what you thought or into the story you bought.
First Islam and Kitman, then USA before he was caught.

Albert Mohler Blog: “Everything Has Changed and Nothing Has Changed — The Supreme Court Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage”

This person said it best. I agree with his words.

In this blog essay, “Everything Has Changed and Nothing Has Changed — The Supreme Court Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage,” Dr. R. Albert Mohler’s responds to yesterday’s decision handed down by the Supreme Court mandating the legalization of same-sex marriage in all fifty states. Mohler writes:

“The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest court in the land, and its decisions cannot be appealed to a higher court of law. But the Supreme Court, like every human institution and individual, will eventually face two higher courts. The first is the court of history, which will render a judgment that I believe will embarrass this court and reveal its dangerous trajectory. The precedents and arguments set forth in this decision cannot be limited to the right of same-sex couples to marry. If individual autonomy and equal protection mean that same-sex couples cannot be denied what is now defined as a fundamental…
