The unhappy gays insisted that sexual orientation laws on hate crimes and discrimination do not apply to ex-gays – only gays.

"The unhappy gays insisted that sexual orientation laws on hate crimes and discrimination do not apply to ex-gays – only gays – and no tolerance should be extended to former homosexuals."

? ! ? ! ? ! ?

Greetings friends and others out there in the Darwinian fogosphere.

Again today, an item a step removed from Sir Charles D. Yet, his begrimed pawprints abound. Does he rest in peace now? Only the divine God knows for sure, but it is quite a stretch for us mortals to envision Darwin resting in peace while so many yet living are ensnared by his vile poisonous dogma and dwell in deep-soul torment.

Today? The homosexual agenda and those who practice and encourage it. And what does Darwin have to do with this? Quite elementary. Darwin's goo-to-you myth implies there is no authoritative origin, purpose, or definition of FAMILY. But God's word the Bible says that when God created man and woman, God also created the institution of FAMILY:

"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh." (Genesis 2:24, NIV)

The bumpersticker paraphrase says: "Marriage: one man, one woman."

As far as the sexual orientation "culture war", I am not about to try to cover the whole range, since there is no lack of blogosphere electrons expended on this topic. Somewhere down below I'll leave a link. But thanks to the American Family Association, doing much to keep American families concerned for America and the future of our children.

My take on it: the BIG LIE is in fact TWO BIG LIES:
(1) Those engaged in the homsexual activities were "born gay"; and,
(2) You can't change.

For the first, I recall clearly our next-door neighbors who had identical twin boys. We grieved with them as one of them was dying of sexually-acquired AIDS. Even to his last breath, this man appeared unrepentant of his long-practiced homosexual lifestyle. Meanwhile, his (straight) twin brother came from California to beg his brother to repent and receive God's mercy through Jesus even at the last hour. Same genes, very different lives.

Ed Vitagliano has an article "In search of the gay gene" (AFA Journal, January 2008, p. 15) for more discussion.

For the second, it is fact that many people have escaped and are escaping the homosexual lifestyle. I still remember clearly the young couple (one man, one woman) I met at a church service at Mammoth Mountain ski area in California about 1974. As naiive students at the University of California Santa Barbara, they had both been seduced into "trying" homosexual behaviors, and were entrapped for a few years. They finally found freedom and the power to escape in Jesus Christ, Savior of the world. As the woman expressed it, "When I got into homosexual behavior, I always felt dirty. I would shower and still come out feeling dirty. Nothing else except Jesus could ever help me to feel clean."

See AFA Journal, Nov-Dec, 2007, "Can Gays Change?":
"Can Gays Change?
"A new study concerning the possibility of homosexuals leaving that lifestyle is roiling the waters of debate, challenging the dogma of mental health organizations who insist that homosexuality is immutable. Organizations like the influential American Psychiatric Association have steadfastly refused to admit the possibility that attempts to change sexual orientation through religious and/or psychological methods can work.
"In 1999, for example, then-APA President Rodrigo Muñoz, M.D., said: 'There is no scientific evidence that reparative or conversion therapy is effective in changing a person’s sexual orientation.' He added that 'there is, however, evidence that this type of therapy can be destructive.'

"A new study, however, claims to prove just the opposite. Conducted by psychology professors Stanton L. Jones of Wheaton College and Mark A. Yarhouse of Regent University, the study, Ex-Gays? A Longitudinal Study of Religiously Mediated Change in Sexual Orientation, was published in book form and scheduled for an October release.
"The authors examined individuals who were attempting to change their sexual orientation by participating in a program run by the religious ministry Exodus International. They said the study was “the most scientifically rigorous study of the possibility of sexual orientation change to date. …”
"The results were impressive: 38% of the participants in the Exodus program had either embraced 'chastity with a reduction in prominence of homosexual desire' or experienced 'a diminishing of homosexual attraction and an increase in heterosexual attraction with a resulting satisfactory heterosexual adjustment.'
"According to press reports, another 29% had had only partial success in leaving the homosexual lifestyle but were committed to continuing their efforts."

But the fact that many have changed and are changing out of the homsexual behavior and into a life of freedom absolutely enrages many in the homosexual movement. In the article linked above, there is a sidebar article "Ex-gays victimized by gay intolerance" by Regina Griggs, Executive Director, Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays. Look there for the context of the quote:
"As happens every year, gay activists disrupted our booth activities. They screamed obscenities, threw our materials from the exhibit table to the ground, insisted we recognize their same-sex “spouses,” demanded that PFOX leave, and hit a PFOX volunteer because he is ex-gay.When we explained that the county’s sexual orientation law allows both the gay booth and our ex-gay booth to exhibit, the unhappy gays insisted that sexual orientation laws on hate crimes and discrimination do not apply to ex-gays – only gays – and no tolerance should be extended to former homosexuals."

BUT THE ALMIGHTY GOD WHO CREATED ALL THINGS AND GIVES LIFE TO ALL LIVING - HE WILL HAVE THE LAST WORD. He speaks from His eternal and almighty throne in Heaven through the Bible as He says:
"The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
"For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
"Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator - who is forever praised. Amen.
"Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

"Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them." (Romans 1:18-32, NIV)

How about one more scripture? In the second Psalm, God says the nations will rage against Jehovah God the Father and against his anointed one (the Messiah, the Christ). But God will: (1) laugh, (2) scoff, (3) rebuke, and (4) terrify. But "blessed are all who take refuge in him (Jesus)." Read and heed:

"Why do the nations conspire (rage) and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against Jehovah and against his Anointed One. 'Let us break their chains,' they say, 'and throw off their fetters.'
"The One enthroned in heaven laughs; Jehovah scoffs at them. Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, 'I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill.'
"I will proclain the decree of Jehovah. He said to me, 'You are my Son; today I have become your father. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. You will rule them with an iron scepter; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.
"Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve Jehovah with fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him." (Psalm 2, NIV, YHWH as "Jehovah")

A Common Testimony Against Abortion: Norma McCorvey (Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade fame) and 2007 Heisman Trophy Winner Tim Tebow

So, what do Norma McCorvey (Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade fame) and 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow have in common? Answer: a testimony FOR life and AGAINST abortion.

First, who are these folks?

Norma McCorvey was pregnant in 1970, and now says,

"On March 12, 1970, I signed the affidavit that brought the holocaust of abortion into America. And I thought I was doing something right. I thought I was doing something good, and I was wrong."

The result of that affidavit was the infamous 1973 U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision which made on-demand abortion in America legal for the first time. For McCorvey's story, see "Playground of Her Soul" in the American Family Association Journal, January 2008, pp. 12-13.

Read the article and weep for her and for the never-born as Norma McCorvey tells of her transformation from abortion sympathizer and promoter Jane Roe to "Roe no more" Christian and life-apologist Norma McCorvey. She now says,

"I love the Lord with all my heart and soul ... [and] it's beyond my comprehension that He can take someone like me who was a hippy and a drug addict and a fornicator and all the other stuff that I did and forgive me."

How about Tim Tebow? He is the favorite of University of Florida Gators football fans, as he won the coveted Heisman Trophy for 2007 - the first underclassman winner in the history of the award. However, "Tebow's accomplishments may never have been supported had his mother followed a doctor's recommendation to have an abortion" says

"Pam Tebow and her husband were Christian missionaries in the Philippines in 1985 and they prayed for 'Timmy' before she became pregnant. Unfortunately, as the Gainesville Sun reports, Pam entered into a coma after she contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in a contaminated food or drink. The treatment for the medical condition would require strong medications that doctors told Pam had caused irreversible damage to Tim -- so they advised her to have an abortion. As the Sun reported, Pam Tebow refused the abortion and cited her Christian faith as the reason for her hope that her son would be born without the devastating disabilities physicians predicted. Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed and, eventually, gave birth to a health baby boy in August 1987."

With son Timmy now (very) fully grown in 2007 passing for 29 touchdowns and rushing for 22 touchdowns, one might wonder, "devastating disabilities?" To some of the bruisers he bruised and opposing teams he thumped with his fearless style of play, it may seem more like "devastating abilities." How's that for a witness against abortion?

Soooo ...
Why do I mention these in a primarily Darwin-despising blog? Simply because, as scripture affirms, we are made in the image of God, invested with the dignity of His image. Darwin's poisonous notion of man as a product of chance has greatly cheapened the value of one individual life. To a big bunch of undiscerning folks in our society today, abortion is seen as an innocuous procedure to merely dispense with an inconvenient blob of tissue.

But "it" is not merely an inconvenient blob of tissue. He or she IS A LIFE.

BONUS: Now you get a third item when you were only promised two in the blog title. The same Jan. 2008 issue of AFA Journal has an article (p. 14), "Sorrow, pain speak at last," about "Operation Outcry". Operation Outcry ( was started as a project of The Justice Foundation (TJF) so that post-abortive women could begin testifying to the harm of abortion. "If women and men who know the real pain of abortion do not tell their stories, then the lie that abortion is a safe easy solution will win," said TJF President Allan E. Parker Jr. AFA Journal reports:
"The affidavits and declarations obtained through Operation Outcry thus far number about 2,000 women since the project's inception. TJF encourages everyone to help the group collect one million such testimonies to take back to the Supreme Court."

Satan-Lucifer Spirit Brother of Jesus? Why the powder-puff evasion of straightforward questions about the Mormon church in Mitt Romney Campaign?

Today is not exactly about Darwin.

It is, however, about evolution. But only because the Mormon church teaches that God is evolving ("As we now are, God once was; as God now is, we are becoming.")

What is my problem with this? Quite a big deal it seems to me. The prophet Isaiah, in the Holy Bible, speaks of Satan in this way:
"How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, 'I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.' But you will be brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit." (Isaiah 14:12-15)

The mormon church teaches that we are becoming gods ourselves just like the god who (they say) created this world. The Bible states that Satan's ultimate affront to God was that he (Satan) desired to be "like the Most High." Computing on those two facts should set off some very loud alarm bells in discerning minds. Does your computation not seem to imply that this very core doctrine of Mormonism lines up flawlessly with the ultimate sin of Satan - desiring to be like the Most High?

So today's question is "Why the powder-puff kid-gloves treatment of Mormon doctrine in the Romney campaign?" Have you noticed it? I have. Two of my preferred conservative radio talk show hosts (Hugh Hewitt and Michael Medved) have seemingly begun to shill (occasionally shamelessly) for Romney. Newsweek magazine (Dec 17, 2007, p. 33) gave a fairly soft comparison of Christianity and mormonism, and then the next week (Dec. 24, 2007, p. 16) said "when Mike Huckabee asked if mormons really believe Jesus and the Devil 'are brothers,' he was being duplicitous - or just plain dumb." Then, in the December 20, 2007, Oregonian, associate editor David Reinhard's op-ed piece dinged Huckabee for asking "Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?" Reinhard's response: "You stay classy now, governor."

So how about the facts please.

For the first fact, let's just answer the question instead of dancing past it. Does the mormon church teach that Satan (Lucifer) and Jesus are spirit brothers? Answer: absolutely, YES.

But for this question and others, don't ask me. Ask the people who spent years in the Mormon church and then escaped (I think "escape" for them would be the operative word - ask them about how difficult it is to just walk out of the MC).

Try these links and then apply some thoughtful introspection and discernment:

Asking "Are Mormons Christians?"

Ex-Mormons for Jesus:

Problems with the Bookof Mormon?

And then look for this very informative book (recent and thoroughly documented):
ONE NATION UNDER GODS: A History of the Mormon Church
byRichard Abanes. Published by Four Walls Eight Windows, 39 West 14th Street, Room 503, New York, NY 10011. 2002. 651pp.

Then prayerfully ask for discernment and then ask, "If I consider that Satan is the 'father of lies' and I view all this stuff from a spiritual perspective, what might I deduce is going on?"

Saturn's Hot Moon Enceladus Puzzles Thought-Imprisoned Evolutionists, Biz-As-Usual to Creationists

Hi all.

Quick one. A November 2006 copy of ICR Acts and Facts just surfaced on my reading stack so it seems my reading backlog is down to only one year. But, with the idea of better late than never, here is a quick description and link of Institute for Creation Research article on Enceladus, one of Saturn's little moons.

But this little Enceladus guy is a hot one, puzzling astronomers. It seems that by November, 2005, Cassini mission (launched October 1997) evidence seemed unmistakable that this little moon was ejecting up to 375 kilograms of water per second at temperatures of up to 180 degrees K.

Author David Coppedge, who works in the Cassini program at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, says:
"The findings were reported in a special issue of Science 3/10/2006. It wasn't long until scientists began wondering how to fit the observations into 4.5 billion years, the assumed age of the solar system. At current eruption rates, Enceladus would have ejected 1/6 of its mass and recycled its entire mass in that time. Neither radioactivity nor tidal flexing appear sufficient to sustain the activity."

Coppedge concludes:
"Planetary scientists are actively reworking their models in light of these surprises. The simplest explanation, that Enceladus might be young, does not even enter the mind of most of them. It's a sure sign of dogma when no observation, no matter how anomalous, challenges an accepted belief. The assumed age of the solar system has become a thought prison. Creation scientists, unhindered by such notions, should go forth and discover the fountains of youth."

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute - SHAME! SHAME! ; Reuters reporter - DUH! DUH! 1984! 1984!

Happy Jesus Birthday (or seasons grittings if that is your cheery choice) to all out there in darwinisdeadsvilleosphere ...

Did you know that evolution is a creepy religion whose adherents seemingly morph into Vulcan brain-melded zombies?

If you just stumbled into here by chance, be forewarned. Maybe you should back out now ... very .. very .. slowly. 'Cause continuing to read postings on this blog may cause you to THINK . And that might be dangerous to ... to ... your income?

Or so it seems.

I just read a Reuters new article about Nathaniel Abraham, an Indian national and "zebrafish specialist", who was fired after a brief employment at the prestigious Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusaetts. See:

His problem? He told his employer, those nice WHOI folks, that he was willing to do research using evolutionary concepts. But those nice WHOI folks insisted that he was required to accept Darwin's theory of evolution as scientific fact or lose his job.

So he lost his job.

Why? According to a now-pending lawsuit, Abraham says his civil rights were violated when he was dismissed shortly after telling his superior he did not accept evolution because he believed the Bible presented a true account of human creation.

Now is that sweet? Doing the job as they ask in the research framework they ask is not enough. Now the loyalist researcher must subrogate the mind to the Party of WHOI, and dismiss the soul to the rubbish heap. Non-zombies need not apply to WHOI.

That is not sweet. That is a big bunch of WHOI.

Side note: "hooey", acording to the Urban Dictionary
has comparable meanings as "bunk", "rubbish", "bs", "bullshit", "malarkey", "nonsense", and "pish tosh." "Bullshit" is the primary alternate term contributed to the Urban Dictionary by The Grammar Nazi. The Russian transliteration is a bit more deprecating.

Oh, and a lawsuit is pending. But don't hold your breath, Abraham. There likely is not a judge in the land with the technical discernment and intestinal fortitude to right this wrong.


But the story does not end with the pink slip. In the Reuters article, written by Jason Szep, we find this:

"The case underscores tension between scientists, who see creationist views as anti-science, and evangelical Christians who argue that protections of religious freedom enshrined in the U.S. Constitution extend to scientific settings."

Can you see how journalist Szep is an unwitting (generously - maybe actually witting) agent of the mind-zombie brigade? The mid-zombie brigade would ask - no, DEMAND - that anyone who does not bow down to Darwin's god of chance which allegedly created (oops, XXXXX, can't say "created" - er, caused to result; oops, XXXXX, can't say "caused" becaue it implies agency. Oh, shucks, just leave it. There is no operative word because chance can't operate) all life and stuff - is not a scientist! Do you see journalist Szep's clear implicit assertion in this sentence that there is a great gulf between "scientists" and "evangelical Christians", and evangelical Christians are not scientists? By definition, so it seems. Academic credentials? No matter. Earned PhD? Nope! Published research in peer-reviewed journals? Nyet!

It seems that the WHOI people are not the only ones who don't get it. Reuters doesn't get it. Jason Szep doesn't get it.

DUH DUH DUHHH Reuters reporter !!

Is this Orwellian or what?

George Orwell's 1984 in Oceania is actually 2007 in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.

Just for a refresher, you can find a list of George Orwell's "Newspeak" terms:

We need not go deep in the list to find a couple of terms for our subject at hand. Let's just start with the first two and leave the rest to you blogvestites for further application..

"bellyfeel" : The word "bellyfeel" means a blind, enthusiastic acceptance of an idea. The word likely comes from the idea that any good Oceanian should be able to internalize Party doctrine to the extent that it becomes a gut instinct - a feeling in the belly.

"blackwhite": Blackwhite is defined as follows: “...this word has two mutually contradictory meanings. Applied to an opponent, it means the habit of impudently claiming that black is white, in contradiction of the plain facts. Applied to a Party member, it means a loyal willingness to say that black is white when Party discipline demands this. But it means also the ability to believe that black is white, and more, to know that white is black, and to forget that one has ever believed the contrary. This demands a continuous alteration of the past, made possible by the system of thought which really embraces all the rest, and which is known in Newspeak as doublethink.


Any worthy Woodsholian must be able to bellyfeel evolution, to internalize - or maybe even be born with, i.e., internatalize - the notion that purposeless particles through purposeless processes can produce purposeful people. And - of course - without a moment of hesitation. Nary a flicker of the eye nor a twitch of the lips.

Further, any worthy Woodsholian must be able to logodaedalically blackwhite sciencefaith. That is, when evolutionists believe only by faith that complex systems come together by chance, that = SCIENCE (!! all bow down). Conversely, when a nonbeliever dares observe that complex systems often fall apart by chance but are never observed to fall together by mere chance, that = FAITH (hoot, hoot).

Could I ever be a Woodsholian? Likely not. Could I even be a Reutersian? Not much chance.

I am not worthy.

Respectfully submitted,


P.S. If any Woodsholian Party Members or Loyalists read this post, I will be immediately blackwhited (see definition above). Since they blackwhited zebrafish specialist Abraham to blackwhite any thoughts of causation in living systems, I expect no free ride either. I further expect that they will surely joycamp me as soon as they can get their hands on me. See Newspeak definitions link above, "j" section. Oh well, I guess it comes with the territory. DU.

P.P.S. I guess I should define "the territory" as referenced in P.S. above. "The territory" is adherence to the Bible, the Word of God, in which God speaks through Isaiah to say (Isaiah 42:5-8):
"This is what God Jehovah says - he who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it ... 'I am Jehovah; that is my name! I will not give my glory to another or my praise to idols.' "
Before God, truly I am not worthy. But He is worthy of all praise and honor. DU
