DOES GOD EXPECT US TO DO GOD’S WORK?

The Creator of this conceivably infinite universe–indeed, conceivably, an infinity of infinite universes–is perceived by us as Yahweh, God, Allah, the Great Spirit, and numerous other names, including the Creator.

And the Creator is perceived by us as masculine, feminine, or neuter (he, she, or it), or none of these–or all of these.

Yet in most English-speaking countries, including the United States, the Creator is most often perceived of as God, and as masculine.

Many of us are averse to using the name, God, though they need not be–it’s just a name.

And many of us claim that there is no God (just as many of us claim that God belongs to them–that God favors them, or their group, above all others, or all other groups).

Those of us who claim that there is no God usually point to the apparent absence of God’s intervention in human affairs–indeed in this universe, at all–as evidence that there is no God.

Yet the possibility that God chooses not to intervene–that God sees the truth, but waits–doesn’t occur to them (i.e. they consider themselves atheists, when they can more accurately consider themselves deists).

Many of us believe that God intervenes in all human affairs–indeed that God intervenes in every individual aspect of any, or every, individual human being’s life.

Some of these tend to praise God for everything that goes well in their lives–but blame themselves, others, or no one, for everything that goes badly in their lives.

Others of these tend to praise themselves, others, or no one, for everything that goes well in their lives–but blame God for everything that goes badly in their lives.

Those of us who believe that God chooses not to intervene–that God sees the truth, but waits–can avoid the dilemmas faced by those of us who believe the reverse.

Yet we cannot avoid the question why.

If God chooses not to intervene in human affairs–indeed in this universe, at all–why?

Is God indifferent to us?

Is God unaware of us?

Or is God totally interested in us, totally aware of us–yet expecting us to act as God in this universe?

Does God expect us to do God’s work?

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PART 3

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PART 2

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PART 1

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PENSACOLA’S FIVE-FLAGS DISPLAYS

NO MORE EXCUSES

This historical cross is now coming down (unless you force your local government to sell the land on which it stands, to a private entity).

That historical cross would not even face the threat of being censored, if you had stood up against your local government’s censorship of this historical flag from your historical flags displays, without your consent.

As of next Sunday, it has been exactly two years since Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward censored this historical flag from your Five-Flags displays, without your consent.  And as of next Monday, it has been exactly two years since Escambia County Commissioners Doug Underhill, Steven Barry, Grover C. Robinson IV, Wilson Robertson, and Lumon May censored this historical flag from your Five-Flags Displays, without your consent.  And every one of those local politicians is still in office, except Wilson Robertson–who has been replaced with Jeff Bergosh (an exact duplicate).

Your historical flags displays are still censored, without your consent–this is not “over and done with.”

Do you think your local politicians will stop censoring your history, without your consent, after that historical cross is removed?

No one said a word about that historical cross until your local politicians censored your historical flags displays, without your consent.  Your local politicians’ infringement on your First-Amendment right to freedom of speech gave the green light to pro-censorship activists–and that’s why that historical cross will soon be censored, without your consent.

When politicians give pro-censorship activists an inch, pro-censorship activists take a mile.

And when you give politicians an inch, politicians take a mile.

I have not done nearly as much as I intend to do, in protesting this local-government censorship of my historical flags displays–censorship done by cowardly politicians, without my consent.

But if enough of you would do half as much as I’ve done, I wouldn’t need to do any more at all.

It’s your First-Amendment right to freedom of speech that I’m defending, as well as mine.  It’s in your interest that those cowardly politicians return this historical flag (the First Confederate Flag) to its rightful place in our Five-Flags Displays, as well as mine.

You spend so much time on your mindless smartphones–mindlessly talking, texting, and tweeting.

Don’t tell me you don’t have time to contact local politicians who have censored your historical flags displays, without your consent–and remind them that these historical flags displays belong to you.

No more excuses–take your city back, or you will lose your country.

No more excuses–take your First-Amendment right to freedom of speech back, or you will lose your Second-Amendment right to keep and bear arms, and every other constitutional right you have been granted in the last 225 years.

This is how your Five-Flags Displays should look–make it so.

A MAP ABOUT WHITE HYPOCRISY

This is a 2013 map of “hate groups” designed by the Southern Poverty Law Center.  The Southern Poverty Law Center’s most recent “Hate Map” is designed differently–maybe its members saw the hypocrisy I’ll soon point out, and corrected it.

The Southern Poverty Law Center isn’t nearly as radical and destructive as the American Civil Liberties Union–though it sometimes allies itself with the notorious ACLU.

Still, the Southern Poverty Law Center is no fan of free speech–and it calls for the censorship of anything politically incorrect (or even not necessarily politically correct).

And the Southern Poverty Law Center is almost always biased toward the political left, and toward political correctness.

There are some exceptions–the Southern Poverty Law Center lists the Jewish Defense League as a hate group.  And the Jewish Defense League is definitely a hate group–though it’s politically incorrect to list it as such.

And the Southern Poverty Law Center lists the New Black Panther Party as a hate group.  The New Black Panther Party is so hateful that members of the original Black Panther Party have unsuccessfully filed lawsuits against it, numerous times, for using the name of their organization.  Nevertheless, it’s politically incorrect to list any Black supremacist group as a hate group.

But the Southern Poverty Law Center deems many groups “hate groups” which wouldn’t be considered hate groups by most people.  Most of these groups are labeled “hate groups” by the Southern Poverty Law Center because they oppose homosexuality, on religious grounds.  And however anyone views homosexuality, no one can deny that homosexuality is condemned in the Torah (Judaism), the Bible (Christianity), and the Qur’an (Islam).  Don’t Jews, Christians, and Muslims have the rights to freedom of religion and freedom of speech?  The Southern Poverty Law Center doesn’t think so.

White hypocrisy is synonymous with White supremacy.

And White hypocrisy infuriates me, most of the time.

But sometimes White hypocrisy amuses me.

And looking at the 2013 “hate group” map above, I couldn’t help but laugh at the blatant White hypocrisy exhibited in the map itself.

The Southern Poverty Law Center primarily fights White supremacist groups.  But the Southern Poverty Law Center is primarily staffed by Whites–and always has been.

It’s similar to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, in this regard.  The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was established by White people who didn’t initially allow any Colored people to run the organization supposedly established for them.

It’s even similar to John Brown, in this regard.  John Brown was a White abolitionist who was responsible for the brutal murders of at least ten people–at least five of whom were unarmed, one of whom was a freed slave, and only one of whom was a slaveholder.  White Abolitionist John Brown led Whites and Blacks on an unsuccessful raid of the armory at Harper’s Ferry, Virginia (the ill-conceived plan was to confiscate the weapons stored there, then use them to liberate slaves–though with no regard for the lives of any White men, women, or children).  But John Brown only allowed other Whites to serve as his lieutenants in the storied raid–because he distrusted the Blacks whose cause he supposedly championed.

The 2013 “hate group” map designed by the Southern Poverty Law Center–which is primarily staffed by Whites, and always has been–shows which states supposedly have the most “hate groups” (and which have the least).  The map is in black and white.  And the darkest states on the map supposedly have the most “hate groups”.  This map could have been in color–the best color arguably being red.  And it’s not likely that the Southern Poverty Law Center avoided using red, in consideration of Native Americans.  It’s likely that the Southern Poverty Law Center avoided using red, in consideration of Communists.

What is certain is that hate groups are considered bad, by most reasonable people–just as love groups (like the colorful bands of flower children of old) are considered good, by most reasonable people.

Only one of the states in the Southern Poverty Law Center’s 2013 “hate group” map is white.  This means that Hawaii is the only state that is free of any “hate groups”–and is therefore the only state that is good.

Conversely, Idaho, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Delaware, West Virginia, Tennessee, and Mississippi are almost black.  This means that these states are rife with “hate groups”–and are therefore bad.

And Montana, Vermont, and Arkansas are black.  This means that these states are bursting at the seams with “hate groups”–and are therefore the worst.

So the totally good state is white.

And the totally bad states are black.

White is good.

Black is bad.

So suggests the Southern Poverty Law Center, in its 2013 “hate groups” map.

The Southern Poverty Law Center–a civil rights group staffed primarily by Whites, since its inception.

Sometimes White hypocrisy amuses me.

WHAT ZIONIST CHRISTIANS DON’T KNOW ABOUT ZIONISM (AND WHAT THEY’LL WANT TO KNOW)

TOUGH TALK FOR JEWS AND CHRISTIANS

“If you think there is no God, you’d better be right!”

That’s tough talk, though certainly valid.

Let’s look at some more tough, though valid, talk:

If you think God favors you over all other peoples of the earth simply because of your shared ancestry, you’d better be right!

If you think God favors you over all other peoples of the earth simply because of your shared belief, you’d better be right!

VICTIMS OF THIS GODLESS DIGITAL AGE

In my fifty-one years of age

I have never encountered such inhumanity

In humanity

Such inhuman

Humans

As in this godless Digital Age.

And this is why I know

That as we true humans remaining

Die

Victims of this godless Digital Age

The death of human civilization

Of which every holy book

And every holy man

Has ever spoken

Will occur.

And this godless Digital Age

Will finally be damned

For all eternity.

Thank God.
