Face Palm, Big Time

Milwaukee

Even though it’s in Milwaukee, and Wisconsin has its own Synod of the Lutheran Church, Our Redeemer in Wauwatosa is LCMS.

Blogmeister holds this real big super giant L.

Okay, let me compose myself and try to make it through this silliness.

(1) Trameka Brown-Berry is a rather odd name for a Lutheran, much less LCMS.  Though since both church and school are in Milwaukee County, it’s probably in an area that hasn’t been Germanic for a long time, so the school has no choice but to appeal to blacks.  Also remember that Wisconsin has a relatively long standing school voucher scheme, which may play into this somehow.

(2) Is it really so wrong to teach fourth graders what first year law students have to learn how to do, that is, argue the case of your opponent?

(3) “And for it to be a Christian school, they could say something like, ‘what are three good things we can do to prevent slavery from happening?'” — Of course, if you actually read the Bible, you’ll find no specific explicit prohibition against slavery.

Chief Hayden partners with churches to stop gun, drug violence

Newly-appointed St. Louis City Police Chief John Hayden has reached out to churches to stop crime across the city.

Chief Hayden, church clergy, and Better Family Life will host a meeting discussing action against gun-violence and drug abuse among the JeffVanderLou and Hamilton Heights neighborhoods. The meeting is Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at Better Family Life Cultural Center located on Page Blvd at 5415.

Hayden mentioned that community engagement was at the top of his list and the church will play a key role in rebuilding police relationship with the community. The chief also said the outcome of this meeting will help restructure inner-city neighborhoods and re-establish their churches as a point of resource for residents.

Huh?  If you are ever brave enough to go to the dindu box crime rectangle, then you’ll see that in the residential areas, the churches are either the most opulent or the most well kept up structures around.  Which is a hint that black preachers are the big chiefs in Bell Curve City.  So don’t you think if black churches were ever able to do any good, they would have already done it?

To figure out that riddle, all one has to do is go inside one of these many black churches on a Sunday morning.  No ethics lecture, but a whole lot of singing and dancing instead.





My First Informal Propositional Logic Teacher

RIP.

News of his passing is true, even if fallacious.

In his later years, his eponymous son had started to supplant the father in running the operation, and when that happened, I was exit stage right.  Because Junior is one of those obnoxious cucks who peddles the notion that Christ ordained and demanded race mixing and interracial marriage.  Of course, since Junior is no longer with the ministry — I heard about this briefly when it happened, totally forgot about it, but now that Senior has passed on, it’s coming back to me, but Junior got his hands caught in the Ashley Madison jar a few years back.

My second informal propositional logic teacher was way more face-to-face but way less religious.





Correlation With Causation

Article links on AR’s story haul back on Tuesday, these two are obviously juxtaposed:

Genius juxtaposition on the part of the AR editors, as far as I’m concerned.

Why?

As I wrote in the latter story’s thread:

Cluster, not coincidence.

“What are you thinking, QD?”

Long track Stockholm Syndrome.

In addition to the fact that a certain percentage of women really go in for audacious goons, especially ones like the Religion of Peacers who have quasi-official societal endorsement.

Archbishop of Canterbury baffled by Christians who back Trump

England’s top religious authority, the Archbishop of Canterbury, said Sunday that he doesn’t understand why so many Christians in the U.S. support President Donald Trump.

The Most Reverend Justin Welby told ITV’s “Peston on Sunday” program that he “really genuinely” can’t comprehend why fundamentalists have provided such a strong base for Trump.

They were told for decades to drop the social issues, and in 2016, they did.

Simple math:

Religious right minus social issues equals populist-nationalist.





You Can Jihad. We Can Help.

Manhattan

My unique angle on the Halloween Day outbreak of peacefulness from the Religion of Pieces in Lower Manhattan, in pictures.

Disclaimer: Suggestive of tragic irony, not an accusation of conspiracy. For both tribal and business reasons, Arthur Blank is as open borders as anyone.

These RoPers are Uzbek, and the Tsarnaev Bomb Bros were/are Chechen, so we might have to worry most about the marginally Caucasian Muslims from the Asian continent and the Stans going forward.

A really big problem going forward for ISIS and affiliated Jihadist movements is that the Western media won’t give them their due credit for the terrorism they commit, because the media are so scared of getting white people/goyim/cishets/deplorables into the habit of noticing patterns.  Yabba Dabba Doo from Uzbekistan here has to be really pissed off that he went through all this on behalf of ISIS and Islam in general, yet Jeff Bezos’s and Carlos Slim’s quaint little weblogs did nothing but scream “truck accident” and “suicide by cop” and “Allah u Akbar doesn’t mean what you think it means” for hours and days.  This is the kind of thing that AQ/ISIS started getting frustrated with starting in the summer of last current year, when, after the Pulse Nightclub shoot-em-up in Orlando, the media tried to cover up Omar Nutbar’s Muslimness by constantly harping on the gayness of the victims.  AQ/ISIS operatives wrote in one of their propaganda rags in the Orlando aftermath that it screwed up by picking politically sensitive victims, so they made it a point of order, going forward from that point in time, to try to mow down people who have no diversity Pokemon Points, or are at the rock bottom of the progressivetard stack.  So far, that doesn’t seem to be working, either.  I’d like to think that the media are colluding to do us a favor, in that if they collude to refuse to give AQ/ISIS/Islam the credit for the terrorism they do, then this will frustrate them so much that they’ll give up on terrorism, similar to my “don’t name the nutbars” policy in this medium.  But I’m probably being too clever by half with that theory.





Half a Millennium

14 11 2017

Wittenberg, Germany

Because I’m a Lutheran, LCMS in particular, I’ve been aware that the current year is the 500th anniversary of the 95 Theses, because the Church(es) all year have been making sure we know about it.  Strangely, ELCA has been rather mum about it, mainly because nowadays ELCA is leftist as just about any Christian denomination, and as such, they’re trying to put daylight between themselves and Martin Luther’s none too kind attitude about parentheticals in his late life.  That said, get ready for Martin Luther to be Robert E. Lee-ized.

However, I was not able to get back enough of my cognitive function on the observed day of the anniversary itself, October 31, (missed it by that much), such that I was really able to appreciate the significance of the day.  I should add that October 31, 1517 is observed as 95 Theses Day, but the switch from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar didn’t happen until later that century.  When the switch was ordained, ten days were skipped over, meaning that the day that was supposed to be October 5, 1582 became October 15, 1582.  This means that October 31, 1517 on the Julian is probably November 10, 1517 on the Gregorian, give or take.

Before I leave this be, I want to address the “it never happened” historical revisionist skepticism.  Their theory is that Martin Luther never nailed or even affixed any manifesto like this to the doors of the Wittenberg church where he was based, that he made the whole thing up about 30 years after the fact and after the Protestant Reformation gained serious political steam and became a thing in order to puff up his own legend.  What I think is possible is that he never “nailed” the 95 Theses to the doors with nails, if only because in those days, nails were expensive, and not a one was to be wasted.  But I do think that he actually did affix the Theses to the door, probably with glue, and did it on the night before All Saints’ Day, meaning October 31, 1517 (again, remember, Julian calendar), and where’s why:  Affixing clerical-professorial statements to church house doors was the way that the clerical-professorial class communicated with each other in those days, and they wrote their statements in Latin for that reason, because it was for the eggheads, not the common people.  Luther never really wanted to split away from the Church, he just wanted some massive major league internal reforms.  Which explains the Theses being originally written in Latin, and being affixed to the doors before ASD, because in those days, ASD was a BFD, way bigger than it is even among modern Catholics.  An official professorial statement that dramatic officially posted on the eve of ASD would have gotten paid attention to big time by the really important clerical officials of the day, just because of the importance of ASD.

Other anniversaries during my incapacity were:  The 40th anniversary of the plane crash that took out most of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the 100th anniversary of the Bolsheviks taking control of Russia. You know how that goes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bolsheviks, Martin Luther, one of these things is not like the others.
