    People Who Are Offended By The Truth Will Always Be Offended



    Death by a thousand slices, has never had truer meaning until you examine how the whole Political Correct movement that started over thirty years ago grew into the tumor of the overly Triggered and Woke culture of today.



    What once was common sense and decency not to say something that may be offensive, has turned into an offensive weapon used by those that may have different beliefs and view points.


    We now have the “cancel” movement on social media and in the corporate world. Today we have entire societies such as China instituting “Social Credit Scores” for their citizenry. Entire corporations and countries even bow down in fear of being “canceled” for speaking out these days, while at the same time true injustice and truth about atrocities go unchecked because it may “trigger and offend” some.


    Terms such as racist,sexist, and so many others been so overly used and misrepresented that they have actually been cheapened. The goal posts are in constant movement in regards to what qualifies to be accused of these terms. After all what one says may offend one, while at the same time it is glaringly obvious that others have seen this as a tool to shut down opponents with differing views and opinions.


    You almost need a score card today to keep up with all the words that others may find offensive. In many respects you need a score card to keep up with the ever changing classifications and thresholds that qualify one for protected status. After all Political Correctness was always intended to silence those that didn’t fit into the “approved” speech category.


    One needs to question just who determines what is approved speech and what is not. No matter who it is that may feel offended by the truth it always comes back to the fact that they will feel offended by something, so it’s time to get over worrying about who might be offended and to speak the truth.


    Today we have people that just because they may disapprove of a source of information they want to somehow discredit it, but when posed with the question of what source is the Approved source that is somehow supposedly the “truth” they fail to list out those sources because they themselves know that the so called approved sources have been shown to be false.



    People Like Us Must Always Be Willing To Offend Them With The Truth



    Stop fearing that you may be offending someone, because anyone can find offense in something. The ultimate goal is to silence you and make you accept the cultural rot and decay of today’s society.


    In the Book of Revelations, John tells us about strapping on the armor of truth. When he describes it the armor only covers the front because there is no retreat and turning back when the truth is lost.


    Today we have allowed this LGBT agenda being pushed on our children through the public education system, we have allowed professors and educators at all levels poison our children across a wide spectrum of issues besides the LGBT movement. From false science, really a quasi cult with the whole environmental movement to teaching the falsehoods of Socialisim and Communism. They do not teach these issues in the proper context and revise history along the way to fit within an agenda.


    One of the main reasons that some people despise President Trump is the very fact that he is willing to fight. They have created outrageous claims to oust him over and over because he promised to come in and expose all the corruption not only in our government, but in the direction these people want to take us as a society.


    We can point out the playbook they follow with The Rules For Radicals and cite historical record of comparisons such as Gobbles, “Tell a Lie often enough till it becomes a truth”, but in the end it comes down to taking these people head on.


    Personally I really care less if I offend you, because you really don’t care if you offend me.


    I don’t really care if you are a Unionist and that I may offend you by pointing out the truth of the history and ties to socialism and corruption.


    I really do not care if I offend you by telling the truth when it comes to political differences and the truth about the Left both historically as well as present.


    I really don’t care if you do not like the sources of information that I present because it may offend you that the truth is being exposed.


    I really don’t care if it offends you that I point out the truth in the division and out right racism of Black Lives Matters because when I cut my hand and I cut my best friends hand who is black the blood is still red.


    I really do not care that pointing out the outright ROT in our culture today may offend you because you support it.


    I really do not care that I may offend you with my faith if you are a none believer.


    What I do care about is the truth! And the truth is everyone can find offense in something.


    It is long past overdue to take a stand and use the same tactics that those who have pushed and propagated the rot that we see today back against them.


    If I offended you by these statements to bad, stop being a snowflake. Take a position and stand, but fully expect that we will not be silenced.

    Atheist Group ‘Bullies’ Public School into Cutting 3rd Grade Live Nativity from Christmas Show

    An Oklahoma public elementary school removed its third-grade live Nativity scene from its annual Christmas production after receiving a threatening letter from an atheist group.


    Christopher Line, staff attorney at the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), wrote to F. Andrew Fugitt at the Center for Education Law that the school district was committing a “constitutional violation”:

    When Jesus Offended People, He Targeted the Proud, Not the Weak

    Jesus Only Offended the “Smug Religionists”
    One group certainly needed offending but it was a very specific, focused set of people. Jesus was careful not to break the “bruised reed,” but He didn’t hesitate to tell off the scribes, Pharisees, and teachers. Read the Gospels and you’ll find it a virtually unbreakable rule. Jesus comforted the weary, healed the sick, brought good news to the poor, taught the truth unflinchingly, and corrected sinners gently — see how He did it with Zaccheus in Luke 19!

    But He really laid into the proud, smug, hypocritical religionists. He called them children of the devil (John 8:44). In Matthew 23 He excoriated them as children of hell, whitewashed tombs, and more. In Matthew 12:34 they’re “a brood of vipers.” (John the Baptist called them the same in Matthew 3:7, focusing his aim on them as tightly as Jesus would do later on.)

    You don’t see Him treating any other group that way. You don’t even seen Him answering the Pharisee Nicodemus that way, in John 3:1-15. Instead Jesus confuses him with his remark about being born again. Nicodemus practically sputters his objection, “What? You mean climb back into the womb and do it that way?”

    So why did He tell off the rest of the scribes and Pharisees the way He did? Because they had God all figured out. They had all the answers, and they had the seats of honor because of it. They were proud. The scene with the Pharisee and the tax collector in Luke 18:9-14 tells it all: They were perfect and had no need of anything.

    Stop being afraid of being confrontational !
    Stop allowing those who want to shout you down and make you silent.
    Don’t be afraid to take those on who disagree with you or are “offended” by your views.

    The Majority Does Not Determine Morality

    After all, Jesus famously said, “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few” (Matthew 7:13–14).

    As the related saying goes, the road to destruction is broad.

    Half of Americans Say Moral Values in the U.S. are Poor
    Ironically, a Gallup article from June, 2018 indicated, “Forty-nine percent of Americans say the state of moral values in the U.S. is ‘poor’ — the highest percentage in Gallup’s trend on this measure since its inception in 2002. Meanwhile, 37% of U.S. adults say moral values are ‘only fair,’ and 14% say they are ‘excellent’ or ‘good.’”

    So, almost half of the country thinks that the moral values of the country are “poor.” This leads us to an obvious question: Are we right about our morals being wrong? If so, then why are so many of us immoral?

    Gallup reported in May of this year that, “A majority of Americans (63%) continue to say same-sex marriage should be legal, on par with the 64% to 67% Gallup has recorded since 2017.”

    As recently as 1996, however, only 27% of Americans believed same-sex “marriage” should be legal.

    Spokane Prosecutes Pastor For Trying To Pray For Kids At Public Library Drag Queen Show
    In Spokane, 649 Rap E kits are awaiting attention, an opioid crisis is raging, and a serial killer hasn’t been caught, yet the city is throwing the book at a pastor who objects to a sexual minstrel show performed for children.
    By Anna Bohach

    This last June, a Christian pastor named Afshin Yaghtin dared to question the sexualization and objectification of our children on public property, and he paid the price. After his case was thrown out of court, last week Spokane officials announced they’ll appeal their prosecution of him for attempting to nonviolently use his free speech on public property.

    In June, Yaghtin attempted to enter the Spokane, Washington, South Hill Public Library to quietly pray for children attending a Drag Queen Story Hour, an event in which a crossdressing person reads young children books about sexuality. When Yaghtin stepped onto the public property of the library parking lot, a slew of police officers confronted him and informed him he would not be allowed on public property — because he was a Christian opposed to men in dresses reading to children and exposing them to a sexual fetish.

    Abortion is Murder plain and simple, does that trigger you or offend you?

    To friggen bad!


    Pro-Abortion Group Gives Out ‘Abortions Are Magical’ Holiday Party Favors



    On December 4, the TEA Fund posted a photo (right) of votive candles with the words “Abortions Are Magical,” along with the image of a unicorn. It was captioned, “Getting our holiday party favors ready! Every year we honor our volunteers and make sure they get a token of appreciation at our annual holiday party.”

    No, the magic of Christmas is NOT about abortion. In fact, it's the very opposite: it's about the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

    And yet, in another post the following day explaining “why we use the language we use,” the TEA Fund wrote “Abortions are magical for most people who have them and refuting that just increases stigma around abortion. They are health care, self care,[sic] and community care.”

    Ivy League prof: Rudolph is 'que erest holiday special' even though conservatives will be 'infuriated'

    • Columbia University professor has declared Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer a "*****" icon.
    • Professor Jennifer Boylan said she knew the assertion would leave conservatives "infruiated," but that conservatives "miss the point" of Christmas anyway.
    conservatives seem to miss the point of a lot of things having to do with Christmas" Tweet This


    Boylan began a gender transition to live as a woman at the age of 42. In her article, she compares her life experience to the Christmas classic, saying, “the subtext of this ridiculous story was the truth of my own improbable life. A fabulously blond elf who doesn’t like to make toys? A reindeer who is cast out by those who are supposed to love him, on account of an accident of birth?”

    Boylan notes that she expects “conservatives” to be “infuriated by this suggestion,” adding that “conservatives seem to miss the point of a lot of things having to do with Christmas.” This supposedly includes that Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ employs a “fundamental critique of capitalism”
    https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=14097

    This is a so called professor who obviously has mental health issues along many categories. Pushing the agenda in the face of the fact of complete idiocy.

    4 Ways To Help Your Kids Fight Assimilation Into Cultural Leftism
    Equipping our kids might mean talking to them about difficult and uncomfortable subjects long before we’d like to. But choosing not to have them doesn’t protect our kids. It dooms them to leftist assimilation.
    By Katy Faust


    “You don’t agree with me that gay marriage should be legal?” All eyes around the lunch table were suddenly trained on my sixth-grade daughter. “But that means you hate gay people!” Morgan exclaimed.

    “No it doesn’t,” Faust daughter replied. “My grandma is gay, and I love her. So, what is your argument?”

    “Well, if a man and a woman who love each other can get married, then two men who love each other should be able to get married, and two women who love each other should be able to get married. There’s no difference.”

    “The difference is that a man and a woman make a baby,” Faust daughter responded again. “A man and a man don’t make a baby, and a woman and a woman don’t make a baby.”

    “Oh, I guess that’s true. But the two men or the two women could just adopt if they wanted a baby.”

    “No. Adoption is not about giving kids to adults. Adoption is about finding homes for children who don’t have parents. And all children need moms and dads,” Faust daughter insisted.

    From the Article:


    “Well, I think kids just need adults who love them,” came the response.

    “No, dads teach kids certain lessons; moms teach kids other lessons. And kids need both kinds of lessons,” Faust daughter concluded.

    Amazingly, No.1 Faust daughter was able to identify three truths about marriage and family that escape most adults: 1) The public purpose of marriage is not about adult feelings, it’s about children. 2) No adult has a right to a child. 3) Men and women offer distinct and complementary benefits to child-rearing.

    As she retold this lunch-time drama, I remember thinking, “Wow, it worked!” No. 1 Faust daughter had retained and could explain much of what we had been talking about at home. It was proof that not only can kids handle these big conversations, they thrive on them.

    You Are the Primary Educators
    Pre-parenthood, my husband and I worked in youth ministry. We witnessed both ends of the parenting spectrum: the laissez-faire, uninvolved-and-unaware-of-what’s-going-on-in-their-child’s-world parents. Those kids were so overwhelmed by the messages and pressures of the world, they were often swallowed whole by the time they graduated high school.

    On the other end of the spectrum were the Christian kids smothered with protection. These kids often fell apart when they went to college. Their parents’ extreme sheltering meant they never had a chance to come up against a worldview challenge, whether evolution or sexual morality or the veracity of scripture, which left them woefully outgunned when they encountered the slightest pushback.

    My husband and I decided on a middle road: train our children on every question the world would throw at them while they were under our roof. That middle road demanded we take our role of “primary educators” seriously. Not only by laying a solid foundation of truth and beauty when our kids were young, but also by introducing them to competing worldviews in middle school. The summer before our oldest entered sixth grade, we studied abortion, transgenderism, same-sex attraction, socialism, and more.”

    2. Include Your Kids in What You’re Already Doing

    —-
    3. Balance Protection and Exposure
    I don’t knock any parent who chooses private school or homeschool to protect their children from the world. The only mommy war I fight is the one that really matters — to insist that every child has a right to his or her mommy(and daddy). Whether your child takes a bus to school or just has to come to the kitchen table, Christian parents are responsible for equipping their kids.
    ———


    4. Stay Connected
    One last thing, and it’s a big thing. These conversations will be impossible or have little effect if we aren’t connected to our kids. Connection comes not only from physical proximity — driving them to school, joint dinner prep, working in the yard together — but also from emotional proximity.

    If your kids are going to navigate a hostile world of competing ideas, they must know you are the safe place to put all their questions, feelings, and doubts. You demonstrate this by not freaking out when they tell you their friend came out as bisexual, or when your little girl says she wants to marry Taylor Swift, or when your son wants to know what “trans” is. While your head may say “WTH!” your face needs say, “I’d love to talk with you about that.”

    Not Woke Enough: Swedish Church Removes Gay Painting, Not Pro-Trans

    The St. Pauli church in Malmö has removed a controversial LGBT painting from its altar in case viewers see the transgender individuals as being associated with evil.

    While many have criticised the LGBT painting in the church, according to pastor Per Svensson, the painting will be moved to another area not because of conservative backlash but because of its portrayal of transgender individuals, SVT reports.
    Pastor Svensson said that the gay couples in the painting were not a problem for the church at all, but the possible association of transgender people with the snake of the Garden of Eden, a symbol of temptation and evil, was not something he could stand for.

    “At first I did not realise the complexity, but upon closer reflection and careful discussion with the management, there is no alternative but to move the board from the church room,” he said.

    UK: NHS to Administer Hormone Blockers to 12-year-old

    Ashley ‘Ash’ Lammin, whose name has been legally changed by deed poll, has claimed to be a girl born in a boy’s body since the age of three, if mother Terri is to be believed — and it seems this idea has never been discouraged.

    Medical Associations Embrace Propaganda, Not Science

    The transgender industry profits handsomely from experimenting on children who are confused about their sex. Experiments include puberty-blocking drugs, cross-sex hormones (estrogen for boys, testosterone for girls), and even mutilating surgery for kids who are too young to buy cough syrup but supposedly competent to make permanent life-altering medical decisions. When challenged about the horror of these medical interventions, the radicals smugly cite support from medical associations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Endocrine Society. Case closed.

    But a look behind the curtain of these societies’ propaganda operations, plus a review of other medical organizations that have resisted the siren song of money and political correctness, shows that many if not most physicians oppose the macabre, ethically bankrupt policies of the pro-experimentation organizations.

    Take the AAP. The political leanings of that organization’s leadership are clear from AAP’s partnership with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a radical outfit that uses threats to force acceptance and celebration of practically every conceivable sexual practice. But do the views of HRC and AAP leadership align with those of AAP’s over 65,000 physician members? We don’t know, because the pro-experimentation policies were passed without input from those members.

    Under AAP policy, any position statement is drafted by a small committee (usually 10-12 members, and maybe as few as seven) and then voted on by the roughly 12-member board of directors. The broader membership has no direct input into the statement and would generally learn of it only after it’s issued. So the only thing the AAP policy tells us is that less than 0.05 percent of the pediatricians who are still members of AAP believe in experimenting medically on gender-confused children.

    Mental-health practitioners have excoriated AAP for its pro-experimentation policy”

    Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Year, ‘They,’ Is Politically Correct Nonsense

    The Merriam-Webster dictionary—that reliable source for simple, straightforward linguistics—has released its 2019 Word of the Year, an annual trend since 2003. Only, I hate to break it to you, the word is “they.”

    “They,” you say? As in, “They looked up the word ‘they’ in the Webster dictionary?”

    No, not that kind of “they.” That’s just a plural pronoun. Webster specifies that this new “they” is being used to refer to a single person when the gender is unknown. It’s also used “to refer to one person whose gender identity is nonbinary.”

    Webster added this definition to the word in September. After taking a poll of its online readers and witnessing a spike in online searches for the word—searches for “they” increased by 313% in 2019—Webster decided “they” should be the Word of the Year.

    And you help make my point George, thank you.

    Everyone can find something that may offend them, but only one side wants to cancel your right to say or express ones self.

    your comeback will be well look at how we don’t want you to express your homosexuality. No that’s not the case, go ahead and do so, but do not expect us to be canceled in turn.

    Drag Queen Prostitute Visits Texas School

    If it’s OK for drag queens to host story hour, what about prostitutes? At one Austin, Texas, elementary school, students got both.

    In what some parents are calling “a sign of things to come” under the city’s radical new sex ed, the kids at Blackshear Fine Arts Academy had an unexpected visitor—with an even more unexpected background. But as shocked as parents were to learn that “Miss Kitty Litter ATX” was a convicted criminal, they were even more horrified to find out that the school district knew it.

    That’s the most astonishing revelation from the open records request that Texas Values filed. Thanks to internal communications between Miss Kitty Litter (real name David Robinson) and the school librarian Roger Grape, moms and dads now know that not only did Blackshear expose their children to this wild and deviant ideology but to a felon too.
