Slavery, Abortion, and Genocide: You either oppose all or support all

Hard truth, here: bias, politics, greed and egocentrism often cloud our minds, but in each of these cases a group was legally deemed less than a full human because of course, you can’t own/kill a full human. 

How have the monsters of history gotten around that? They had two choices, the could either make murder of anyone legal OR they “legislate” a group into lesser status they deemed unworthy of full rights. History has shown us which path the monsters of the past have chosen. 

We need not make these mistakes again. I often hear the question, “which side of history do you want to be on?” in regards to social justice topics. 

I want to be on the side of the maligned, the mistreated, the disenfranchised, and the voiceless. 

Consider these proposals I have heard regarding these three cases:

1. The civil war was about states rights and not slavery. 

2. Legalization of abortion is about women’s rights, and not killing those who cannot speak.

 3. Naziism was about rejecting communism, and not genocide. 

I disagree with each and every one of these vehemently. If you disagree with one, you must disagree with all, or you are not being logically consistent or intellectually honest. Each of these cases targeted killing and/or dehumanizing a single demographic: African Americans, the unborn, and those of Jewish heritage. Next time you think your #pro-choice stance is fighting to give rights to a minority, consider the unborn, the only minority without a voice.

This guy knows whats up, and he CARES about the souls of women. I wish all men were so moral and charitable.

It happened, again. Summer is so hard for upright women of God like myself. It is filled with selfish men who disregard the souls of biologically driven women so that they might wear whatever they please. Women are only responding naturally, the way God made them. This is not their fault.

Note the strategically placed overnight bag intended to make you think about sex!

Mass was a minefield. Men wearing tight pants that draw the eyes to their posteriors. You’re telling me they aren’t advertising something? You’re telling me they aren’t trying to make me desire them? I don’t believe anyone could be so naive. Why else would they dress like that? IF they didn’t want me to look, they would make themselves frumpy and grandfatherly. No, these men are attempting to provoke sin. They are disregarding the souls of women for the sake of fashion. Could anything be more sinful and uncharitable?

It’s like if I struggle with kleptomania, obviously any of the shop owners in town that allow their shops to remain open are in a state of sin because they are leading me to sin. Why is this so hard to grasp!?

Men should be asking their wives before they leave the house, “is this modest? Does this make you think lustful thoughts?” Wives should have the final say since only they know what goes on in the mind of a woman, particularly teenage girls.

Look at them. They literally have no control over their reactions.
Look at them. They literally have no control over their reactions.

Have you ever actually seen the bedroom of a teenage girl? They are so flushed with hormones that they wallpaper their rooms with “Belieber” posters and other men in various stages of attire! This is real! This is biological! Women are physically not able to just look away. Their hormones are raging! We need to have charity toward them. We need to stop being so selfish. It’s fashion. SOULS ARE AT STAKE!

Does it really matter if a man leaves the house intending modesty? No, it matters if he incites lust, and he needs to concern himself with the souls of the women around him! We can’t control the thoughts of others, but we can control what we wear. Men need to start throwing women a bone, instead of just crying foul when a woman howls at them or gives them a stare down. Would you really be wearing that second button unbuttoned if you didn’t want others to know about your assets? That’s what I thought. Pigs!

Shemar, we see you, and we upright women will not be taking your bait...Ok, maybe just a glance...
Shemar, we see you, and we upright women will not be taking your bait…Ok, maybe just a nibble…

I yearn for a time such as we had prior to the 1930’s when men were not allowed to trapse around without a top in public. They flaunt their nippled chests and stomachs with impunity today, and all so that they can “go swimming and have fun.” You better believe they are asking to be grabbed and oogled. They are basically wearing underwear in public. They only difference is the fabric. Would you wear your underwear in front of another woman?! They mean to give us BEDROOM THOUGHTS.

They will get no sympathy for me if they are victimized! They should know by now this is a woman’s world and women have hormones and drives. We can’t be expected to just look away and think about something else. That is ridiculous. That’s not how God made us.

This guy knows whats up, and he CARES about the souls of women. I wish all men were so moral and charitable.

I hope for the day when men dress with dignity. Modesty isn’t only about covering our bodies. It’s is about revealing your dignity! These men need to see their innate dignity and stop wearing the equivalent of underwear or asset accentuating suits in public.

Let us all pray for these lost men who have no idea the effect they have upon women, that they may see the error of their ways and the beauty of puritanical modesty. Amen.

Are you condemning evil or contributing to it?

img_0530


We MUST speak out against clear evil. We always must, even if it upsets people and even when no one wants to hear it; however, we must resist another related evil.
We must resist the evil that is seeing ourselves as holy and upright because we boldly and bravely condemn evil.

We must not fall prey to the temptation to be cruel and malign other sinners simply because we are not guilty of the sin they commit. We must not give in to the temptation to purposefully be offensive because we believe anti-political correctness a virtue. Rudeness is not of God. His followers are meek and kind, full of grace.

Do not accept the truth in such a way that it allows Satan to sit between your heart and the truth, distorting the message turning you bitter, hateful, and arrogant. Satan doesn’t fear you having the truth. He fears you disseminating it with charity and compassion, for who would be turned from that truth?

Yes, we must have compassion. Compassion is not “being nice” or “not being offensive” but to suffer with someone. It is co-suffering. You cannot suffer with someone whom you do not know or with whom you have not spent any time. You cannot co-suffer with someone whom you are busy wounding.

The Pharisee did not mistake Jesus for condoning the sin of the sinners with which he spent time, and likewise you to can go out as salt and light preaching a message of truthful love and understanding. No one is converted by prideful grandstanding and vitriolous judgement.

Beat your chest before the chests of other wounded sinners, “mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!”

When false witness hurts real peopleĀ

If someone tells a lie, the truth has become their enemy and their shame. Do not engage such treacherous and unhappy people. Carry on as if no one of consequence has said anything, because no one of consequence has. The truth defends itself. 
There is a mountain of good work that needs your attention more than defending your silly pride. Do not neglect good work so that you may roll in a dung heap like those with no focus or purpose, and do not give to toxic waste the attention that is due to honest endeavors. 
People with joy, honor, and integrity are not found in these pits of toxicity, and you will become whatever surrounds you – do not let it be dung!

Things your mother never taught you but that you need to know NOW

#yougonlearntoday

You’re probably wondering why some silly, theistic, mommy-blogger is covering this topic. I will tell you why, friend. I’m a mom. I mother things. That’s what I do. Sadly, your mother didn’t teach you these things and not because she didn’t care about your manners or social skills. She cared. She cared deeply. She just wasn’t a millenial. These social norms were not and still may not be on her radar, so #yougonlearntoday.

Why listen to me? Listen to me because I spend way too much time on the internet. I once tried to waterproof my phone so I could Favebook in the shower to keep from getting bored, ok? I know the internet.

1. NEVER have a relationship spat over social media. In addition to making your entire friends list or followers wide eyed with cringeworthy surprise, you can jeopardize your job and even lose it depending on what you have to say. It’s not classy. It’s not polite. No one wants to know. Anyone who DOES want to know, doesn’t need to know.

2. NEVER congratulate anyone on their new baby/engagement/pregnancy announcement over social media. It never fails. I have so many friends and family who get beaten to the punch line. Someone else inevitably informs the interwebs before they have a chance because they had the decency to inform their loved ones, before posting it on social media. Without a second thought said loved one posts a congratulatory post, tagging the congratulee.

In some cases it’s innocent oblivion, and in the worst cases, its a pathologic insecurity wherein they must assert that they are the absolute closest to the person with the good news – so close in fact, that they knew before all y’all! Can I give you a word of advice? If I struggle for two days to force a human body from my uterus, do not beat me to the punchline on sharing the news. It will not end well for you. Maybe someone more polite and demure than myself won’t confront you about stealing their thunder, but you can be sure that you robbed them of something that was rightfully theirs.

3. NEVER have a relationship status besides married or single. Why? Anything else is too much information. Anyone can see your account. Do you really want anyone, anywhere to know that “it’s complicated” or that you’ve just “separated?” These are deeply personal things, and while I understand wanting to inform your close contacts, it’s best to inform those who need to know in person or on the phone where it won’t be a spectacle. In the best cases, people will pity you, and in the worst cases, they will gossip.

4. NEVER post any pictures you don’t wish to share with your progeny. Do you want your grandkids to share at school, “this is when my mee-maw was twerking it in Grand Central Station.” No. Just no. Sure, you can delete, but unless you’d be comfortable sharing it with your future employers, in-laws, parents, and offspring, don’t share it. Nothing can be erased from the internet forever. Trust me. Whatever the drama you have, someone will want to ride that llama.

If you are considering politics, be even MORE restrictive in what you share. Word to the wise, snapchat is not safe. It has screenshots. Stop pretending it’s safe. I’m pretty sure every snap Kylie Jenner has ever shared has been cataloged on the internet. Any snap you share could be immemorialized for all of eternity, too. If the human race is desimated in a dinosaur meteor-esque fashion, do you want future civilizations to look upon thine ample backside, wiggling around a light pole as a representation of our species? You do? Call your mother. Tell her you need a hug.
