Blasé about truly appalling crimes against nature

Go back – oh, even two decades – and I’d say that if the news came up, e.g. about a Holly and Jessica horror, it would be all over every major daily and the electronic media.

Now it doesn’t even rate a mention.  A Christian has no mortgage on conscience and a sense of right or wrong and there are many who once felt these things were so horrific, that the government must move hell and high water to bring such animals who do such things to justice.

And so to this word:… More here ...

Dawkins Syndrome

Had to smile at this, couldn’t resist it, given the spiritual outlook of many of our dear readers at N.O.:

Apparently my hypothesis that atheism is a mild form of autism was correct, but didn’t go anywhere nearly far enough. Scientists are determining that atheists are mutants who are literally unfit in a variety of ways.

Like it.  How about this one:

An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane, he turned to her and asked, “Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.”

[Let’s switch off the alarm bells at least until the joke ends.]

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, The Atheist Complex, asked in return, “What would you like to talk about?”More here ...

Irish vote

I tweeted:

When women face their Maker on Judgment Day, the one which will consign them to hell will be murdering their babies. A lesser charge of feminism will also be brought and ignorance will not mitigate it.

Amfortas comments:

The darkness falls.

Let’s just say I wouldn’t want to find myself as one of their foetuses as they look at me that way.… More here ...

What essentially is wrong with modern film [1]

This will spill over into the 16:00 post today.

I hear that the new Han Solo movie sucks. Literally sucks, in that Lando Calrissian is revealed to be “pansexual” or some such nonsense.

This is a surprise?

As I’ve written before, the whole point of the new SJWars is to destroy something normies once loved. But normies loved it, by and large, because it had timeless themes — good versus evil, conflicting loyalties, comradeship. You can’t tell an actual story without those, which is why the sequels, prequels, and other assorted cash-ins are basically just 3-hour-long video game cut scenes.

Which brings us to Han Solo and his pansexual swinger pal, Lando. The new SJWars did a pretty good job of ruining all the meaningful parts of the original trilogy, but all the intersectional genderfluidity in the galaxy can’t make Han Solo uncool. Harrison Ford’s Han is the epitome of “toxic masculinity” – swaggering, entitled, with a classic shitlord smirk that guaranteed he’d pull twelve parsecs of poon no matter how fast he finished the Kessel Run.
