1 John 2:16: For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world.

As pride has been labelled the father of all sins, it has been deemed the devil's most prominent trait. C.S. Lewis writes, in Mere Christianity, that pride is the "anti-God" state, the position in which the ego and the self are directly opposed to God: "Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere fleabites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil:

Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind." Pride is understood to sever the spirit from God, as well as His life-and-grace-giving Presence.

More and more the heroes of the Left are homosexuals, abortionists, communists and generally a parade of the vile and loathsome.

Criminals and con men aren’t the worst among their number, sadly they’re among the better. The criminals are at least sometimes acting out of human motives (bad motives to be sure) rather than motives embracing some inhuman Cultural Suicide Fetish.

It’s a byproduct of the same conformist mentality that Obama wrote of when in his book he said he became radical to avoid being seen as a sell out.

If she’s a raving loon, simply do not invite her and your son over for dinner (Thxgiving, Xmas, etc.). It may be difficult, but as far as I’m concerned, if a relative is a screaming loon of whatever political persuasion, it is perfectly fine not to tolerate his/her crap on any occasion.

Some of my relatives are very liberal, but I am thankful to God that none of them are raving lunatics.

And that’s the kind of thing that Facebooger, Gewgle, Twatter, etc. are counting on running up to the 2020 election.

Hope you don’t have to kick her out.

Looks like we’re living in the time where our foes are those of our own household, as it was written millennia ago.

Journalist Andy Ngo was attacked and bloodied by Antifa in Portland OR.

The attack was caught on tape and has outraged countless numbers of people including some very high profile leaders who are calling for these incidents of intolerance to be prosecuted and more.

An owner of a large security company has offered protective services for Andy free of charge.

A group of sympathizers set up a gofundme page with a target of 50k and it was already past 25k in the first two hours.

I saw Andy interviewed. He is likable, talented, peaceful. I would not hesitate to help him.

But the general media in their moronic fashion had to emphasize that “ANDY IS GAY”.

WTH does that have to do with anything?

I suppose it can be used as a cudgel of sorts to imprint the incident as “violent leftists attack gays”, but these Antifa thugs are already branded as intolerant without calling attention to Andy Ngo’s sexual sin.

Andy is a sinner, I am a sinner.

But I am a reforming Christian where I work to renounce my sin and free myself from it. Andy can be a Christian too but he has to renounce his sin. He won’t as long as he stays a homosexual.

If I had been in Andy’s place in Portland, here is how the general media might have written what happened to me:

“A far-right conservative Trump supporter, some sources tell us is a White Supremacist, provoked a group of peaceful protestors into chasing him away.”

They’re all hypnotized. You have to try to snap them out of it some other way.

Ask your grandkids if the want to see what Mommy looked like at their age, and drag out the old home movies. Maybe it will take her back to a time before the left ruined absolutely everything. If not, well, you’ve killed some time.

I recently reconnected with a high school friend who’s unfortunately a Bernie supporter. I haven’t mentioned a word about politics yet. I did use the phrase “politically incorrect” once in a text. She said “that’s a triggering term”, and I then asked “So what would you call the Chinese Fire Drills we used to do at traffic lights?” And of course we both thought that was funny. I’m trying to remind her of how things USED TO BE, and how she used to be herself, before the thought police took over.

LGBT... Liars glorifying banal transgressions.

Glorying in shame is a non-survival trait spiritually and eternally.

Sad for you.

Pubic school Level I indoctrination has been quite successful. Followed by Level II at college (the real reason college has been pushed sooooo hard). Level III is social media.

She has been effectively brainwashed, as in a cult. Undoing it will be tough, probably impossible. She’s an adult, and has too many reinforcements against your logic.

I no longer speak or have anything to do with my youngest brother who is a rabid anti-Trump Leftist. Our parents are gone, it did bother me at first to cut him off but not so much anymore.

The September 11 attacks did, indeed, wound us almost beyond healing. It was less than 2 years later that The Supreme Court decriminalized homosexual sodomy nationwide in Lawrence, giving sodomites and their slavish leftist lapdogs the signal to ramp up their activist game against normal, religious people. "Whatever isn't prohibited shall be mandatory" writ large.

The festering sore of Bush v. Gore was given newer fodder for outrage, and anarchist groups arose as a result. An exponential coarsening of the culture began shortly after. The most radical Islamic groups found friendly turf in the push back against what we knew attacked us.

I’m in the same situation with my brother,
although not for politics. Sad stuff.
