  • On the sad lies and embarrassing illogic of womens' ordination supporters

    Those who have followed my writings and rantings over my ten or eleven years of blogging (I began blogging, ahem, when I was twelve) know that I have a few pet peeves. They include, but are not limited to, pronouncements from Hans Küng, declarations from Anne Rice, lousy music, Dan Brown novels, burnt coffee, and people who think the Oregon Ducks' (football) offense is "a gimmick". And then there is the women's ordination movement, which I find to be both completely disingenuous and hysterically ignorant. Or, as I put in a post a few years ago: Why does this rankle...

    In an open letter to UC President Susan Herbst, self-described feminist student Carolyn Luby wrote that the redesigned team logo will intimidate women and empower rape culture. Not realizing that she was being over-the-top ridiculous, and claiming that she was threatened with rape, she went to he campus police and was told by a UConn police officer to keep a low profile and wear a hat. We get an insight into what Luby views as rape by this comment: Luby, who openly shared her experience as a survivor of rape and sexual assault at Take Back The Night, an event...

    A 14-year-old Girl Scout has joined with parents and Scout alumni to call for a boycott of the widely popular Girl Scout cookies, claiming the organization is using cookie proceeds to push a radical homosexual agenda at the expense of the Scouts’ safety. The girl, identified as Taylor from Ventura County, Calif. – but whose parents have asked her last name and troop number be withheld – made a YouTube video calling for the boycott after she was shocked to discover Girl Scouts USA, or GSUSA, has been admitting transgender boys who claim to be girls into scout troops. After...

    A well-backed Democrat candidate who ran for a position on the board of a top beltway-area school system has been found guilty of assault for ramming a pro-lifer with her car during this year’s national March for Life on January 24, LifeSiteNews has learned. Charisse Espy Glassman, the niece of former U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy, withdrew her candidacy for the Fairfax County Public School board after the charges were revealed by the Washington Post this summer. Glassman was convicted of one charge of simple assault, and found not guilty of a second charge of possession of a prohibited weapon....
  • Phthalate warning: Medications contain chemicals that "feminize" unborn baby boys

    NaturalNews) In a bombshell finding that has far-reaching implications for society and culture, scientists at the University of Rochester have found that phthalates -- the chemical found in many vinyl and plastic products -- tends to "feminize" boys, altering their brains to express more feminine characteristics. The study has been published in the Journal of Andrology. Phthalates are found in vinyl products (including vinyl flooring), PVC shower curtains, plastic furniture and even in the plastic coating of the insides of dishwashing machines. The feminization process happens during pregnancy when phthalate exposure causes hormone disruptions in the unborn baby. This chemical...

    LONDON, U.K., July 6, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - After contemplating the immense mysteries of human life and sacrificial love in comparison to a woman's "right to fertility control," a writer for the Times of London concludes that attempts by pro-aborts to dismiss the life of an unborn child are a "convenient lie" hiding the fact that, "Yes, abortion is killing.” “But,” she concludes, “it's the lesser evil."Columnist Antonia Senior in a June 30 column (available by subscription only) says that, despite the fact that the abortion debate hinges upon whether the unborn child is a unique life or not, women who...

    Ann and Nancy Wilson are p*ssed at the Republican Party and have fired off a cease and desist letter to the McCain/Palin campaign. Specifically, the Heart women are upset that the GOP has used their classic "Barracuda" as a theme song for Sarah Palin. TMZ obtained a statement from Heart's rep, who says "The Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song, nor would they have been granted that permission." The statement goes on: "We have asked the Republican campaign publicly not to use our music. We hope our wishes will be honored."

    The tyranny of the matriarchy (Feminist agenda) The feminists are whipping up women to join their ranks and rebel against the tyranny of the patriarchy. They claim they want a society that will give them equal rights regardless of gender. They want a unisex society where women can enter the workforce and hold a good career as do the men. The feminists however want something else instead. They want more than a platform over a pedestal, they want a throne. During the sixties when you had in the name of civil rights radicals fighting for so called equality, these people...

    According to Heather MacDonald, the feminist takeover of Harvard is imminent. The university is about to name as its new president radical feminist Drew Gilpin Faust, following Lawrence Summers’s all-too-brief reign. Summers’s recklessly honest speculations about women in science strengthened the feminist hold on faculty hiring and promotions. The Task Force won a $50 million commitment to increase faculty “diversity efforts” at Harvard. As University President, Lawrence Summers in 2005 gave a speech where he dared to suggest that innate differences between men and women could explain why men hold more seats as top scientists than women. This is a...

    I brought this up on the air yesterday, but we never really did develop much a conversation about it. Pete Williams walked out of a Georgia jail yesterday. He had been in jail for 21 years, convicted of a rape he did not commit. Pete was freed thanks to the work of a third-year law student and the Georgia Innocence Project. Some DNA evidence still existed from his 1985 conviction .. and that DNA evidence proved that he was not the rapist. So ... how did he get convicted? On the eye-witness testimony of the victim, that's how. The victim...

    Judicial activists know no restraint By Rory Leishman London Free Press Tuesday, January 16, 2007 In a classic 18th-century text, the Spirit of the Laws, Charles de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu, pointed out that the separation of legislative and judicial powers is essential to freedom under law. He wrote: "Were (the judicial power) joined with the legislative, the life and liberty of the subject would be exposed to arbitrary control; for the judge would then be the legislator." Sir William Blackstone likewise warned in his magisterial Commentaries on the Laws of England (1765-69): "Were (the judicial power) joined with...

    The three federally funded agencies most responsible for turning Canada from a stolid conservative backwater into a raving feminist-gay backwater were cut off at the knees this week in a budget brought down by the Harper government. Reducing federal spending for the first time in nine years, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty also reported a $13-billion surplus in last year's operations. The surplus, he said, would be directed to debt reduction. Liberal governments had been increasing spending by an average 8.2 percent annually, peaking in their final year with a whopping 14.4-percent increase. That had been done in a desperate attempt...

    The fledgling congregation gathered in a circle at Sunday Mass at Spartan Memorial Chapel to introduce themselves. A woman in a long, white robe spoke first. ``My name is Victoria Rue,'' she said. ``And I am a Roman Catholic woman priest.''Rue belongs to a renegade movement that is ordaining women as Catholic priests, in defiance of the Vatican. Today, Rue celebrates Mass at the non-denominational chapel at San Jose State University.Joining her at the altar on Sundays -- also in clerical robes -- have been a married man, his wife and another woman.

    Heighland Heights, KY -- A college professor at Northern Kentucky University encouraged her students to vandalize a pro-life display members of the campus Right to Life group set up to oppose abortion. Not content with urging students to trash the memorial, Dr. Sally Jacobsen participated in the vandalism and was caught on camera by reporters from the student newspaper. Members of the Northern Right to Life, the campus pro-life group, set up hundreds of crosses on a campus lawn to memorialize the babies who have died from abortion since Roe v. Wade. After Dr. Jacobson and NKU students destroyed the...

    The Wide-Ranging Feminist Agenda at the UN Social conservatives at the United Nations, always busy fighting the big fight over the creation of an internationally recognized right to abortion on demand, rarely have a chance to counter the rest of the international feminist agenda. But this agenda encompasses so much beyond abortion, and the rest of it has proven so disastrous to men – and women – that it must be examined in detail. There are now entire UN agencies devoted to women's development and women's health, as well as a whole commission of unelected gender "experts" that castigates countries...

    Dr. Johnnetta Cole, a woman whose radical views forced the Clinton administration to withdraw her name from consideration for Education Secretary, will be one of three keynote speakers at the Girl Scouts USA national convention in Atlanta from October 7-10. Another speaker is Kavita Ramdas, president and CEO of the Global Fund for Women, which, among other things, promotes abortion and feminism. The third speaker is Ann Curry, news anchor for NBC’s Today Show. The choice of the first two speakers indicates that the Girl Scouts show no sign of slowing their plunge into hard-core feminism and political advocacy, at...

    BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - Severe weather caused by global warming can pose greater physical danger to women than men, a Canadian attending a UN conference on climate change said Friday. "For instance, often women don't know how to swim, so in a flood situation that can lead to a higher instance of death or injury," Angie Daze, a program manager with a Canadian group called Reducing Vulnerability to Climate Change, said. Plans for international co-operation to fight global warming beyond the end of the Kyoto Protocol dominated the United Nations conference on climate change. The top European Union negotiator...

    Dec. 1, 2004 - The "ABC" method of HIV prevention is failing too many women, say groups including the United Nations agency set up to fight AIDS. The groups say that programs relying on abstinence, being faithful, and condom use -- the so-called ABC method of prevention -- don't serve the realities of women in poor countries where the epidemic is the worst. They called for international donors and countries like the U.S. to adopt an "ABC plus" policy devoting more money to stopping unequal economic and social treatment of women and girls. "These programs are not being implemented in...
  • Boy's Invention Drops Toilet Seat Automatically

    That annoying habit that most men have of leaving the toilet seat up is no longer an issue for women in the Attwood household in Palmerston North. Ben Attwood, 13, has invented a toilet seat that lowers by itself. No manipulation by the user is required. The Palmerston North Intermediate Normal School pupil created the contraption after his mum constantly complained about the toilet seat. At the time, he was looking for a project to do for the school science fair. A long screw and a kitchen timer, which winds back and allows the seat to drop, form the basis...

    There are events in life which remind one of what’s truly important. Last week, for example, the subject for this column was going to be the depraved absurdity of O.J. Simpson attempting to explain himself to the media. Again. On this ten-year anniversary of the murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman, Simpson was making the interview rounds as the car wreck of the week. Then President Reagan died. Once again, in a world which seems to be swamped in the ugly and hopeless (think Michael Moore and O.J, Simpson), Reagan emerges as a reminder of the class, style, compassion...

    LOS ANGELES -- A Claremont college professor who claimed she was targeted in a hate crime that provoked campus protests denied police allegations that she staged the vandalism. "This is like a very big deal if they think I'm a suspect," Kerri F. Dunn, a visiting professor of psychology at Claremont McKenna College, told the Los Angeles Times. "I didn't want any of this from the beginning. This is so overshadowing the bigger problem on campus, which is that the administration has turned its head regularly on hate speech and hate crimes." But police said two witnesses came forward with...
