"Iron law of woke projection," as James Lindsay calls it. They call out what they themselves do. Apt!
Try here. The PDF is imbedded in the article.
We need docs like you who say no. Stay the course, we are with you!
Yes, that's a great point! I definitely wasn't dismissing the article out of hand, but the blatant lack of curiosity had me lol-ing. Just seems so typical these days...
They pushed C19 testing and school-mandatory jabs hard here in NV. I'm very sad about this news, but... it's not unexpected. When I asked one of NV uni's TIX/EEO folks about the supposedly-mandatory testing, they had no idea what I was talking about. Willfully ignorant or...? Either way, I never complied (nor will I ever).
Did anyone else see the article (last week or so;I found it on CFP) about how throat cancer is exploding among 20-somethings, and "it's due to too much oral sex". I laughed out loud. It couldn't possibly be due to chemically-laced Q-tips being shoved down folks' nostrils and throats for the last 3-ish years, nooooo. 🙄
If I understand correctly, they "debunked" that the data wasn't about the 2020 election data specifically. How can that be? If not data from the 2020 election, what data was it? Used by Lindell to what end? What about the election interference data from our Italian friends (re: Leonardo)?
They try to make it sounds like it's all a good laugh, 'cause the "debunker" is some wealthy Trump republican from Nevada, but this just smells wrong.
I think we all know that 2020 was rigged, and likely all elections for many years now.
I'm more interested in knowing why the courts don't seem to care. 😩
"Kidding," the mod says! Mmmhmmm, suuuure. (I hope you can see I'm being facetious, but I don't know your sense of humor, or which humor that even is. Better safe than sorry, I s'pose!)
Well, it's certainly not a secret to many of us here. I mostly include info like that for those who don't know. Feel free, of course, to delete my comment if it's not adding anything.
Garrett Ziegler (Telegram) has posted a few times about Meg Reiss and all this interconnectedness. All I can say is: none of it surprises me anymore. In fact, I've come to expect it!
I drive Reno-to-Spokane all the time, and the thing to watch out for the most is boredom. Make sure to have some good audio books on hand!
Other than that... Oregon's terrible roads? 😉
Drive safe, fren!
Stop importing! 🤣 The non-vaxxed lady-pedes here need help finding good non-degen men (I say on behalf of myself, who is a non-jabbed lady-pede and who can't find a good non-degen man)!
I've opened a couple YA books recently, to see what's out there, and the "they"/"them" pronouns are everywhere for a singular character. It's maddening. Completely illegible gobbledygook.
My friends who live there are die-hard dems, otherwise I'd recommend this to 'em. I'll see if I can pass this along to some Racine-folk, who might know of some people.
Well, dang! You've got yourself a deal. Feel free to do the same. 🐸
Sad, yet true 🤣
Northern Nevada (the last...6 years or so), although hopefully Idaho soon! 🙏
Michigan, let us know if you ever find success, as I need to find a based hubby myself! Hopefully the recipe to your success doesn't include living in MI, though, 'cause I swore off the midwest after 12 years in WI. 🤣
Mmmm, that lovely buzzword "equity". I see it and "nope" right out.
Likewise, thank you for responding! 'Idolatry' means that you worship an idol as though it is God. That does not occur in the Orthodox church. My comment was to impart some balance, as your description of the Orthodox Christian faith came across (to me, at least) as if it were cultishly ritualistic, which couldn't be further from the truth.
To your other point, you are right: I'm not making a comment on living in Russia, nor have I been to the church there. The history of the Orthodox Church in Russia is not a kind one, although I think there's a lot of hope associated with Putin's (current) good relationship with the Church. My fingers are crossed that this continues!
What might interest you: there is a book, "The Icon: Window on the Kingdom" by Michel Quenot, which details iconoclastic arguments in small albeit decent detail. It's well worth your time, if you're curious about the various back-and-forth within the church over divine imagery (and what led ultimately to the proclamation of the legitimacy of icons and their veneration by the Ecumenical Council of Nicea II. Again, I'm not a historian, so I apologize for any inaccuracies.)
This is a good starting point for the point of view I'm coming from, although I'm not trying to change your mind nor is this a perfect description:
It's all very "Orthodox Christian", so it might be difficult to understand. Not because understanding it is difficult, but because it's a matter of faith and which path we're on. Without being Orthodox Christian, it's difficult to orient oneself to Orthodox thinking (which is, of course, true in reverse). To that end, I am still learning.
As a Russian Orthodox Christian (currently going to a western rite mission church here in ye good ol' USA), I would argue that the view point on "idolatry" as an interpretation of icons in the church is a new-age Christian one (post-schism, definitely, although I'm no historian on exactly when icons were ousted -- with the creation of the protestant church, maybe?).
To be clear: I grew up in a variety of different Christian churches (Lutheran, Episcopalian, etc), and I wasn't sure about the icons within Orthodox churches either, at first. But before dismissing the very idea of icons, there are some truly amazing resources out there to explain the beauty and love involved in icons, iconography, and the veneration of icons. It is not idolatry in any way.
I do agree with the sentiment, however, that many should visit an Orthodox church! Whether OCA, Greek, Antiochian, Russian, western rite or eastern, or a monastery -- we exist in many forms and enjoy visitors immensely! Just don't expect many chairs available to sit in during service...
James Lindsay's New Discourses podcast on woke-ism, marxism, queer ideology, etc.
I listen to others, but I didn't see this one mentioned yet!
[Edit: Ancient Faith Radio has several podcasts from the Orthodox Christian perspective along with a 24/7 radio channel of chants/choir music. Highly recommend!]
Okay, hold up.
My folks were just told they had an SSA issue as well. They went to their SSA office to ask about it, and it turned out the SSA messed up! Maybe this happened on OP folks' end, too?
However, because of this massive mistake on the SSA's part, they now owe the IRS a good chunk of money.
Anyone else hearing something similar??
Couldn't agree with both of you more. Joey doin' Nevadans proud here. Should've won in the primaries.
I like how certifying the election needs to be done in a timely manner, but the vote counting itself can keep going into perpetuity. Nevada still at 99% of votes counted, last I checked. 🧐
I would argue the left loves labels, but only when they are the label-givers. They consider themselves the supreme authority of knowledge, and therefore most fit to create and designate labels.
They actually want pedos to be thrive, regardless of the label, as long as it's a label they give them. You with your high, monotheistic morals and far-right politics? No way.
They can't understand the negative reaction to pedos, either (queer theory and marxism - but I digress - has rendered them without any traditional morals among other things), and they are struggling to put a coherent argument together that isn't coated in marxist BS. They (the Left) will not win this.
They didn't mention blood donations from the jabbed, but there's probably not a lot of data in one place for that at the moment. I hate to think what's going on there.
