“One of the hardest things about being a handler is that I’ve honestly had people ask, ‘Wait, you have sex with animals?” ~Sam Brinton [Biden Administration official]

Sick,sick world

The Culture Alternative

What you will see here may sicken you. You must, however, not turn your head away. This is our government supporting the debauchery. It is evil. We must call it out as such.

Sam Brinton is an MIT graduate who is both a queer activist and a specialist in handling nuclear waste.  And he is the Biden Administration’s latest hire at the Department of Energy as the Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition Deputy. 

What a colorful life Deputy Brinton has. He is a “pup handler” — that is, a gay man who leads other gay men who pretend to be dogs. What’s that all about? Let this profile in Metro Weekly fill you in. This is not for the squeamish.

This is the extreme degradation our current administration supports. I bring this out into the open so we know what we are fighting against. Unless we stop it, it…

Yesterday I Was Levi’s Brand President. I Quit So I Could Be Free.

I did not know…did you?

The Culture Alternative

This is what courage looks like. As people of faith, we need to be “big and bold” for Jesus. This gives us some ideas. Can we walk away from it all to keep our voice for Jesus?

Levi’s brand President Jennifer Sey said on Monday that the company pushed her out because of her public comments against COVID-19 school closures and mask mandates. Sey, 52, made the claims in Bari Weiss’ Substack channel Common Sense, writing she turned down the company’s offer of a $1 million severance package because she didn’t want to sign a nondisclosure agreement.

When I traveled to Moscow in 1986, I brought 10 pairs of Levi’s 501s in my bag. I was a 17-year-old gymnast, the reigning national champion, and I was going to the Soviet Union to compete in the Goodwill Games, a rogue Olympics-level competition orchestrated by CNN founder Ted Turner while the…

If There’s One Thing We Hate More Than Granting Forgiveness, It’s Requesting It

We all have a cactus to hug.

The Culture Alternative

Have you “hugged the cactus”?

Great article on forgiveness from John Zmirak. John is a senior editor at The Stream and author or co-author of ten books, including The Politically Incorrect Guide to Immigration and The Politically Incorrect Guide to Catholicism. He is co-author with Jason Jones of “God, Guns, & the Government.”

The speaker was actor Robert Downey, Jr., whom you might know as “Iron Man.” Some 20 years ago, he was more widely known as a “train wreck,” a hopeless drug addict whose addictions could wreck any project he got involved with. How many celebrities who actually kill people go to prison? Downey harmed only himself, but his drug-driven misbehavior was so in-your-face and notorious, that California prosecutors decided to put him away. For more than a year, in a real-life prison, not some rehab hospital with guard dogs.

Husband Love your Wife Part 1

Perfect thoughts for especially today.

The Domain for Truth

marriage-and-theology-series

Ephesians 5:25-27

Establish the need:  Husband how are you loving your life?

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 26 so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.

Purpose: Today we will see the command to husbands to love their wives and also the three motivations to obey God in this area even when it is not easy.

  • Command: Love your wife (v.25a)
  • Motivation: Christ’s sacrifice for the church (v.25b)
  • Motivation: Christ’s sanctifying the church (v.26)
  • Motivation: Christ’s spectacular goal and patience for the church (v.27)

Context

  • Macro-Comment for verse 25-32: For this section on husband there are 116 Greek…

SOMETIMES THERE IS JUST NOTHING TO SAY

Just be there.

SOMETIMES THERE IS JUST NOTHING TO SAY

Gina Kemp

Sometimes there is just nothing to say. There are some things that happen in life that words won’t heal.

There are some things that take our breath away that only silence can breathe life back into our lungs.

They are the things of life that are beyond someone giving a kind word, a positive hopeful thought, a story of so and so who went through this and that and made it through, a good sermon, an uplifting song. I mean don’t get me wrong, these things help especially when they are blanketed by the truth of God’s word but somewhere a midst the things of life that exceed the realm of platitudes there are just some things that happen that can’t be healed by us and our feeble human attempts.

I think of Job, I think of all he suffered, loss…
