Football & the gender elephant in the room

Sitting here eating chips and salsa, watching Super Bowl L just for the commercials, it strikes me how this game is so masculine. Still.

All the players are men. All the coaching staff are men. The photographers on the sidelines? Men. The announcers? Men. That goes for most major sports. They are the domain of men.

All of that is kind of odd, given American culture’s disdain for men, for the masculine, for everything the masculine projects. With all the “equality” stuff in our culture, the I-can-sleep-with-anyone-and-don’t-judge-me, the I-can-be-any-gender-I-want-and-y0u-WILL-conform-to-my-fantasy, how oh how have major league sports, like the NFL, escaped?

Why aren’t Millennials boycotting the Super Bowl for not allowing women? Why aren’t Millennial teenage girls, or girls who think they’re boys, demanding the right to try out and MAKE their high school or college football teams? Why aren’t legions of bull dykes marching outside Levi Stadium demanding their “right” be play as defensive tackles? Why are there no female coaches in the NFL? Half of the US population has no part to play, literally play, in major league sports or events like the Super Bowl. Women are not “represented.” They are not being treated equally by “the patriarchal establishment” or whatever wording “the enlightened” are using nowadays.

I’m not saying I’m “pro-” women in major league sports. I don’t follow sports, I was never good at them, they bore me, there’s too much money involved, so it makes no difference to me if women play or not. But it’s peculiar that this industry’s thus far escaped the overarching cultural pressures on men to be less manly. Don’t you think?

 

Catholic Illinois pols voted “yes” to redefining marriage because of Pope Francis?!

I may have to go to confession. I may have taken the Lord’s name in vain when I read this. I can’t remember.

Catholic Illinois lawmakers told the Chicago Tribune that they voted to redefine marriage to include sufferers of same-sex attraction because of Pope Francis.

They cite his summer 2013 “who am I to judge?” remarks about gays. Of course, we should be cognizant of the fact that his Holiness was speaking in a specific context, but when you speak off-the-cuff, shit like this happens, if you’ll pardon my French. (Aside: I pride myself on having coined the phrase “poop chute politics” for the whole pro-sodomy rights movement.)

Hat tip to PewSitter who linked to this story from Protect the Pope (who in turn linked to the Trib article).

<cracking my knuckles> So let’s have some fun with our brethren’s quotes:

“As a Catholic follower of Jesus and the pope, Pope Francis, I am clear that our Catholic religious doctrine has at its core love, compassion and justice for all people,” said Rep. Linda Chapa LaVia, a Democrat from Aurora who voted for the bill after spending much of the summer undecided.

Yes, it does! Love, compassion and justice for the homosexual, the child molester, the murderer, the Hitlers and Stalins of the world, even the Obamas of the world. That doesn’t mean we give them legal protection to commit sodomy, rape, murder, theft, etc.

House Speaker Michael Madigan also cited the pope’s comments in explaining his support for the measure.

“For those that just happen to be gay — living in a very harmonious, productive relationship but illegal — who am I to judge that they should be illegal?” the speaker said.

We can EASILY extend this logic beyond The Gays to polygamy, or adult-child sexual relationships too. If you believe in LGBT equality, then aren’t you COMPELLED to extend “marriage equality” to the bisexual woman who loves both a man and a woman and wants to marry both? Eventually, the law WILL extend legal protection to those relationships, it can’t not. Eventually someone’s going to sue in the name of “due process” or “equal rights” and how is a court going to say no?

The “Progressive” takes a Darwinian/Marxist view towards freedom/liberty/rights. What they’re blind to is that as these sins escalate in number, they’re more akin to a roller coaster car going uphill, unaware when they get to the top, things are going to go downhill very quickly.

So they can point to nine or 10 years of gay marriage in Massachusetts and say, “See, society’s just fine!” They swallow the “fags and dykes are just like you and I!” junk they’ve been spoon-fed by the culture over the past 15 to 20 years but especially the last decade.

As has been said elsewhere, the redefinition of marriage started 50-years ago with acceptance of no-fault divorce, abortion, contraception, and the “sexual revolution.” We’re already reaping the fruits of that. Look no further than the black community to see what happens when fathers don’t matter anymore, or don’t stick around. Is it any wonder that it was black voters who helped defeat marriage redefinition referendums so many times? Is it any wonder that it was black Democratic lawmakers in Springfield who held out about voting for redefining marriage? They know what’s in the cards when the basic cell of society gets cancer. The cards don’t lie, just like Miss Cleo told us.

The dam has sprung leaks here and there. Eventually, the whole edifice WILL give way, whether it collapses under its own weight or someone else (probably Mohammedans) dynamite it.

I parody media hit job on small town elderly pro-marriage librarian

Suburban Chicago newspaper The Daily Herald reporter Russell Lissau wrote a hit job on a little old lady, a librarian in a small town, because she opposes redefining marriage to include same-sex couples, polygamy, children, animals, and whatever else Lissau probably embraces. You can read his screed here.

Reading it, I couldn’t help but wonder, would he have written the same thing about an anti-marriage librarian? Let’s have some fun with this parody of the article that Lissau would NEVER write:

Lake Co. library leader assails gay traditional marriage

The leader of a Lake County library district board on Tuesday assailed plans to legalize gayprotect the definition of marriage in Illinois.

PolygamyAbolishing divorce will be next,” Bonnie Quirke, the president of the Libertyville-based Cook Memorial Public Library District board, told the Daily Herald. “Is that really what we want? Is that really what they want?”

Quirke’s comments came during an interview prompted by posts she’d made on Facebook. In the interview, Quirke said she opposes the effort because it redefinesrestricts the word “marriage.”

“The whole purpose of marriage isn’t reproduction, it’s love,” Quirke said. “Two people of the same sex can’tcanreproduceturn to adoption and surrogacy.”

When asked about other forms of parenting available to same-sex couples, such as adoption and surrogacy marriage being illegal, such as marrying more than one person, or one’s parents, siblings, first cousins, children, developmentally disabled individuals, animals, and inanimate objects, Quirke remained resolute.

“Is that really in the best interest of children, to be raised by two men or two women one man and one woman?” she said.

Quirke also insisted gay men don’t maintain monogamous relationships.

“There may be a coupleare no exceptions, the AIDS crisis of the 1980s wasn’t caused by rampantly promiscuous gay men engaging in unprotected butt sex, but they’re not (monogamous),” she said.

The General Assembly approved legislation that would allowban gay marriage Tuesday. The plan now heads to Gov. Pat Quinn.

Quirke, of Libertyville, has served on the library board since 2005 and has been its president since 2010. She’s also a leader in the anti pro-abortion movement in Lake County and Illinois.

Quirke said her views on homosexualityheterosexual marriage haven’t affected her ability to serve the library district. She’s never tried to keep books on the subject out of the collection, she said.

“I think I’ve been a very good, strong advocate for the library,” she said.

Cook Memorial Public Library District Director Stephen Kershner said he doesn’t share Quirke’s opinions but defended her right to express them. He isn’t concerned her views on gay rights are shaping library policy.

“There are seven elected board members, and policies are made by the majority of the board, not by an individual board member,” Kershner said.

Mitchell Locin, a spokesman for the gay-rightsmarriage defense group Equality IllinoisNational Organization for Marriage, called Quirke “out of touch” with the people of Illinois.

Lissau’s article is one of the increasing attacks in a culture war that seeks to intimidate and subjugate anyone who doesn’t conform to the dictatorship of relativism.

Start out small, with a little old lady in a small town, then work your way up. When they (ultimately, Catholics, orthodox Jews, and Mohammedans) don’t give in, those enemies of the human race must be eliminated, systematically, for the good of society, in the name of freedom and equality.

Three years ago, Chicago archbishop Francis Cardinal George made the following prophetic statement:

“I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so often in human history.”

Pray for Mr. Lissau. Pray for Ms. Quirke. Pray for the conversion of sinners, heretics, and non-believers. Pray for yourselves, your priests, bishops and your pontiff, that we will have the courage to embrace persecution, suffering, and martyrdom, whether white or red.

Media abandoning all pretenses of objectivity re: marriage stories? @cbschicago leads way

Is the media abandoning all pretenses of objectivity when it comes to reporting on efforts to rape the definition of marriage to include man-man, woman-woman, polygamous, polyamorous, incestuous, and adult-child relationships?

Witness WBBM-TV in Chicago, where “CBS 2 Works for You” except when it comes to providing basic journalism, like, both sides to a story.

Reporter Jay Levine provides a stunningly one-sided account of a “marriage equality” rally in Illinois’ capitol city Springfield. There were no interviews with anyone who opposed redefining marriage. None! What’s more, this was just a rally. There isn’t even a vote scheduled in the state’s General Assembly. There was no actual news. NOTHING HAPPENED.

You can’t even lay all the blame on the reporter. He probably had a producer working with him. And the newscast itself had a producer and executive producer. There was an assignment editor who assigned Levine this story. And surely a news director signed off on the time and expense of sending the station’s “top” reporter several hours away from Chicago to cover this non-event.  There was a deliberate, conscious choice to brand this story as “marriage equality” instead of “gay” or “sodomitical” or “homosexual” marriage. This was a systematic effort with multiple opportunities for multiple parties to ensure a balanced story was being told. But it didn’t happen, and there’s a reason for that, a very dark reason.

I’ll save my scribe on the media being a tool of Satan for another post. In the meantime, I’ll take consolation in the fact that nobody saw this story because WBBM’s newscast is in last place. THAT works for me, CBS 2.

Thoughts on Morgan Freeman, homophobia and a**holes

Recently, a friend on Facebook shared the following image:

https://i1.wp.com/i.imgur.com/sX4R0.png

Morgan Freeman never actually said this. Snopes says this is false. It is fake.

But I wanted to comment on the quote, regardless of its origin.

First: I probably AM homophobic. I am scared of falling back into mortal sin related to same sex attraction, whether that sin is by thought or by deed. I fear that many souls will be lost because of the promotion of homosexuality and all the vice that accompanies it. It’s bad, people. I lived the “gay lifestyle.” I am a homo. I know what it’s about. I am afraid of homosexuality (and you should be too!).

Second: Let us shift to the subject of a**holes.

If I call you an a**hole, I’m insulting you. I’m making an analogy comparing you to something that is dirty, unclean, smelly, etc. Feces, folks. That’s what comes out of a**holes. Nobody calls you an a**hole as a compliment, or out of charity.

Now ponder this. Sodomites adore a**holes. They lick them (it’s a sexual activity called “rimming”). They stick things in them, natural and unnatural. I mean, that’s what it means to sodomize! That is the definition: Anal intercourse.

So. I think we can easily see that calling someone an a**hole is anti-gay hate speech. It is a “homophobic” slur. It is saying that there’s something wrong with the anus, and therefore, something wrong with the man (because you generally don’t call women “a**holes”) who licks/penetrates/pierces/loves/etc the anus.

Take that, Morgan Freeman.

Obama: “Tevin could have been my son”

Obama: “Tevin could have been my son”

I have no evidence Obama actually say that.

There aren’t any marches with sodomy pride flags, or “ministers” crawling out the woodwork to whip up donations peoples’ emotions with demands for “Justice for Tevin.”

“A car drove by, yelled something about them being white. One of my buddies said something about disrespecting a combat veteran,” he said to our NBC affiliate in Seattle, Washington.

That’s when police say five African American men in their mid twenties pulled over and started an argument. One man allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed Geike multiple times.

May Christ have mercy on the soul of Spc. Tevin Geike. Pray that the murderers repent and come forward.

The media’s burying this story because it doesn’t fit with their liberal agenda of labeling certain groups as “victims” and others as “aggressors.”
