Pray, Candle Light Vigil, Lather, Rinse, Repeat

You are witnessing insanity. I am not referring to the insanity of Islamic terror – that’s not insane, just demonic.

You are watching the destruction of a culture, built over thousands of years rousso– destroyed in a few generations.  I am not referring to the destruction of jihadis who just detonated a nail bomb to rip apart children, including 8-yr-old girls, as they enjoy an Ariana Grande concert.

The insanity belongs to the people of the West; the so-called “leaders” of democracy and liberal values.  To those who continue to spout banal, poopy-talk like

or

The destruction is not by suicide vests, but by a domestic security policy that allows, nay invites, a foreign invasion on a scale unprecedented in human history. I say again – unprecedented in human history.

When all your response is:

  1. Hashtag “Thoughts and prayers”
  2. Change Facebook filter
  3. Candlelight vigil
  4. Wait for the next slaughtering

then you are insane. Destructively insane.dag39m_xgaezcju

When any resource is put into policing Facebook posts and Tweets for “Islamophobia”, instead of monitoring foreign terror on your own soil, you know you are living in the land of lunatics.

23-yr-old Salman Abedi, the man who blew himself, and others, up last night, was “known to [UK] security services” but they did nothing to stop him.  He had been planning this for months, but they believed he did not “pose an immediate threat”.  Meanwhile, Tommy Robinson just got out of prison for having wrongthink on Twitter.  Let that sink in.  A Tweet = prison. Known terrorist activities = no action.

Madness.

The West is starving for real leadership.  Breathlessly waiting for one man to, instead of repeating the same PC dog sh*t about “diversity” and “strength” and “privilege” and “inclusion” to say “You know what? We messed up. This doesn’t work. Those among us who cannot build or maintain our society’s values don’t belong here. We will not implement practical measures to correct this”.

Just as nature abhors a vacuum, so does true leadership.  Somebody will step up. Unfortunately, if the leaders of the West don’t act now, that person will be someone who won’t play so nicely and whose methods may be a bit dicey – but by then most people will welcome it.

One day, the wrong guy’s daughter is going to get blown up (or stabbed, or raped) and he will look like the second coming of John Wick. And all the blood shed then and now up to that point, will be on the hands of those that caused this issue and do nothing about it.

 

Leadership – An Invitation to Inspire

I stumbled on blog post today about Women Leaders in the Church.  To put it mildly, this was an immature rant, rambling almost incoherently without saying much other than accusing men of being violent, prone to crime, and emotionally insecure, and unfairly holding back women from leadership in the church; all while society at large is rapidly promoting women in business, politics, education, etc. (because you know we really should be following the world’s lead here…). Oh, and that Jesus founded the Women’s Liberation Movement (I kid you not!).  Check it out.

There’s much to be said about the post itself.  But one thing appears to be clear: the spirit of feminism that has taken hold in certain christian circles is insidious.  Continue reading
