Uh-oh …

It seems that the president of North Greenville University, a Christian school in South Carolina, was stepping out on his wife, so his son decided to do something about that and post the video to YouTube.



At SBC Voices, Dave Miller wonders if, just maybe, it’s time for Baptists to stop covering-up pastoral indecencies and actually drive them out.

It Just Ain’t Right: Hiding Sin Solves NOTHING!

Miller is right — sort of. Baptists should certainly be done with these hot dogs, but it’s more important to stop spreading the imbecilic theology that promotes misbehaviors by disparaging healthy sexual desire and requiring the compulsory degradation of believers.

The Will to Power

Book Two: A Criticism of the Highest Values That Have Prevailed Hitherto
A Criticism of the Words: Improvement, Perfecting, Elevation

§398   What I want to make clear, with all the means in my power, is. (a) That there is no worse confusion than that which confounds breeding and taming, and these two things have always been confused. Breeding, as I understand it, is a means of husbanding the enormous powers of humanity in such a way that whole generations may build upon the foundations laid by their progenitors not only outwardly, but inwardly, organically, developing from the already existing stem and growing stronger. (b) That there is an exceptional danger in believing that mankind as a whole is developing and growing stronger, if individuals are seen to grow more feeble and more equally mediocre. Mankind is an abstraction: the object of breeding, even in regard to the most individual cases, can only be the stronger man (the man without breeding is weak, dissipated and unstable).

Dobson: Obergefell about hostility toward Christians

James Dobson recently instructed his handful-sized clutch of readers that the Supreme Court’s decision affirming same-sex marriage is not about marriage at all, but an expression of disdain for Christians.

“As you probably know, certain groups and organizations hate us. It is about weakening the church of Jesus Christ and limiting what pastors and ministers can say and do publicly,” he said. “It is about undermining the religious liberties of Christians that are guaranteed by the Constitution. It is about attacking Christian schools, Christian non-profit organizations such as Family Talk, and Christian businesses, hospitals, charities, and seminaries. It is about Christian colleges and universities, and about whom their leaders choose as professors and what their students will be taught. It’s about government funding and accreditation.

“It is all at risk. You’ll see.”

That’s the Christian narrative, all right — relentless persecution of good, decent, godly people by wicked-wicked-wicked people who hate the baby Jesus. And never mind asking how so many people ranging from the Stonewall Inn to the chambers of the Supreme Court were successfully inveigled into joining a convoluted conspiracy to ‘get’ Christians. It’s obvious! Anybody can see it!

Bah. Dobson is an idiot, and so are the people to whom that isn’t obvious.

The Will to Power

Book Two: A Criticism of the Highest Values That Have Prevailed Hitherto
A Criticism of the Words: Improvement, Perfecting, Elevation

§397   One must be very immoral in order to make people moral by deeds. The moralist’s means are the most terrible that have ever been used; he who has not the courage to be an immoralist in deeds may be fit for anything else, but not for the duties of a moralist. Morality is a menagerie; it assumes that iron bars may be more useful than freedom, even for the creatures it imprisons; it also assumes that there are animal-tamers about who do not shrink from terrible means and who are acquainted with the use of red-hot iron. This terrible species, which enters into a struggle with the wild animal, is called “priests”.

* * *

Man, incarcerated in an iron cage of errors, has become a caricature of man; he is sick, emaciated, ill-disposed towards himself, filled with a loathing of the impulses of life, filled with a mistrust of all that is beautiful and happy — in life in fact, he is a wandering monument of misery. How shall we ever succeed in vindicating this phenomenon, this artificial, arbitrary and recent miscarriage, the sinner which the priests have bred on their territory?

* * *

In order to think fairly of morality, we must put two biological notions in its place: the taming of the wild beasts and the rearing of a particular species. The priests of all ages have always pretended that they wished to “improve” –. But we, of another persuasion, would laugh if a lion-tamer ever wished to speak to us of his “improved” animals. As a rule, the taming of a beast is only achieved by deteriorating it: even the moral man, is not a better man; he is rather a weaker member of his species. But he is less harmful —

Theology-related quote for the day

I’m telling you, this is what the modern evangelical church is coming to. Embarrassment. Disgrace. Unattractive to those outside the cult mentality.

Tom Rich

Two comments:

  1. The people inside the evangelical bubble really do not know how ridiculous and pathetically isolated they are.

  2. It’s going to get worse. As they sense themselves moving irrevocably to the outer margins of civil life, their anger will intensify.
