Should Christians Practice Polygamy?

 An interesting article. 

In general, I agree with the conclusion: it's morally wrong, but there are always exceptions. As a Protestant, I just keep wondering about one thing. How comes that Catholic countries, such as pre-revolutionary France punished bigamy with death, while prostitution was openly practiced. When you read the Bible, one of these things is always described as a grave moral evil, and it's not polygamy...

Conspiracy Theory Or True?

 What do you think of the stories about otherwise healthy folks dropping dead apparently due to Covid vaxx? I know many people who got vaccinated, some took boosters as well. I've heard about side effects, even serious ones. But, nobody died so far.

So I naturally tend to distrust such info. What about you? Feel free to share!

How Not To Marry A Loser

 I wanted to write a long post originally, but then decided I'd just give you a couple of examples based on what I've seen irl, details somewhat changed, obviously.

Case 1.

A guy goes on vacation and picks up a divorced single mom who is cute and very easy. Somehow she gets pregnant and he takes her and the kid back home. He doesn't actually know much about her and her character besides that she's good in bed (or so he thinks). He later finds out that she is lazy, low class, entitled and has substance abuse problems.

Case 2. A good Christian girl keeps herself for marriage and doesn't date much. She meets a guy who is also a believer from a decent Christian middle class family and falls in love. The family wine and dine her and that makes her blind to the fact that the guy in question is a school dropout, can't hold a job and gets a burnout the moment he has to exert himself. After the wedding she finds out that he expects her to keep working even after the children come, prefers to work part-time himself but won't lift a finger to help with the housework.

Case 3. A Christian guy meets a Christian girl who is pretty, good-natured and a virgin. He marries her and then finds out that she has a princess complex, doesn't cook, doesn't clean but has a taste for luxury. 

Add to these an example of a guy who is an eternal student because he doesn't want to work and gets pain in his head/back from working a normal working week, a party girl who had like 100 men in her bed but is now "reformed" and wishes for a good Christian husband (but still likes to party), a guy who is 30 but expects his parents to take care of him and a girl who says she doesn't want children because her career is more important.

I could go on, but I think you get my point. If you wish to have a good marriage and a normal family life avoid these types like the plague. Let them marry each other...

My Thoughts About The Italian Election

 "The best way to control opposition is to lead it." 

I may be mistaken, of course, we'll see.

All these so-called "conservatives" salivating in comments on Gab and Twitter about the "first woman ever to lead in Italy (and she is much hotter than Hilary and totally "right wing") are seriously pathetic, though. Guys, why are you such simps? Is it an American thing or something?  

There is nothing traditional about any of this.

Will King Charles Really Do It?

 One can only hope:)

Prince Harry will be permanently exiled by King Charles, as the royal family plans to follow the playbook drawn up to overcome a crisis triggered in 1936, when Edward VIII abdicated and was obliged to live the rest of his life outside the UK, according to the Daily Beast.

Should We Hate Boomers?

Boomers may often be clueless, and they are the first generation who normalised abortion, no-fault divorce and working mothers. They often support white knighting, third world immigration (as long as it is legal!) and like talking about boot straps. Younger generations may find them egoistic and irritating. I get all this. 

But as Christians, we are supposed to treat older people with respect, as our own parents, and have compassion for their weaknesses. We aren't supposed to hate on them and make jokes about killing them  (the day of the pillow or whatever the heck they call it). In my opinion, such jokes are in very poor taste and I'd like to remind the fellow GenX-ers (and it's mostly them, with a couple of Millennials) that we are also getting older by the day and it soon will be our turn.

There is nothing "traditionally Christian" about it at all. The reason I'm writing about it is because I often see this type of discussions on Gab where Boomer hate minute is held practically every day. 

Also, it's not your (Boomer) parents' duty to babysit your children, especially if they took the trouble to raise you normally, with mother staying home and all that. You owe them a duty as a child to take care of them in their old age, not vice versa. Too many young people seem to forget it...

Is Democracy A Theater?

 Interesting article:

The thing is, people are wising up to the fact that even if the GOP wins every race and takes a 435–0 majority in the House, nothing changes. Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy will slither over to the White House with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to swear off partisanship. The lesson of the election, they will tell us, is that the people want the parties to cooperate, with the Democrats getting everything they want.

P8rnification Of Society Continues

 This time, it's men who are victims:

Only this complete upheaval of traditional gender dynamics could allow high-achieving women to “sugar baby” for working class men, and without any tangible consequence to the women. Cassie and Lainey’s experience is a microcosm of the broader cultural changes in America over the past few decades. American men, especially working class men, have been left behind with little hope for the “American dream” of a good family and stable job, income, and community. Rather, they self-medicate with drugs, alcohol, porn, and the pseudo-personal relationships offered by girls like Cassie and Lainey.

Legalising Weed Was Not A Good Idea

“I started seeing people with the worst psychosis symptoms that I have ever seen,” she told me. “And the worst delusions I have ever seen.”

These cases were even more acute than what she’d seen from psychotic patients on meth. Some of the delusions were accompanied by “severe violence.” But these patients were coming up positive only for cannabis.

The Great Replacement

 It is a conspiracy theory, right? Also spotted in Germany: 

 


 In case you don't read German, it says: Socks out, condom on! Because we can't have ethnic Germans accidentally reproducing, can we? There are immigrants for that...

Queen Elisabeth Dying?

 You heard it here first:

Queen Elisabeth II "Under Medical Supervision", Family Gathers

Update: The Queen is dead. Prince Charles will be crowned tomorrow.

Crazy Summer. More Germany.

 It's like this summer never ends. We got a temperature spike of +30*C again last weekend. Then it finally started raining! I think last time we had a real rain was somewhere in the beginning of July. Yesterday was the last really warm day, about +25*C but it's still going to be +21/22*C for some time and then? Who knows. Normally I always feel blue when the weather becomes more autumn-like, but I'm not really sorry to see this summer gone. It's still like 24*C in our bedroom...

Here are more vacation pictures for all of you.

Should Christians Support Disney?

  That is the question:

Last week, Disney continued down its path to destruction, releasing a new cartoon entitled Little Demon, and it is just as bad as it sounds...

 The cartoon takes place 13 years after an unmarried pagan woman is impregnated by Satan (voice played by Danny Devito) and follows her and her daughter (literally the spawn of Satan and referred to as the Antichrist) through everyday life.

The series features demonic witchcraft, pagan rituals, gratuitous blood, gore, and nudity, and judging by the trailer (included here, but not recommended) can easily be considered pornographic by definition

Antichrist is now female, too! In my times, it was male (does anyone still remember the Omen movies:)

Notice that the series features witchcraft and pagan rituals, tied to satanism. Still think Harry Potter were innocent children's books?

Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Woke Review

The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power (Amazon Prime) is so staggeringly bad, it's hilarious. Everything about it is ill-judged to a spectacular extreme.

The cliche-laden script, the dire acting, the leaden pace, the sheer inconsistency and confusion as it lurches between styles – where do we start?

He forgot to mention "diversity and girl power" out of political correctness, so I'm doing it for you:)

Read the whole review over here. Personally I think this commenter expressed it best:

Fans are exactly the people who won't watch it. How arrogant are you to think that tens of millions of people who devoured the books and love the Peter Jackson films (well, maybe not the Hobbit) would want to watch Tolkien be destroyed by a pair of woke 25 year old muppets, a cast of self centred communists and a studio who spent 250m on an appendix and made it into a reflection of 2022 United States dystopia. You are deluded

VD And Student Loans

 The thing is, Vox is very correct. Forgiving student debt is deflationary. Erasing a debt is literally removing money from the system (despite the money being fake and gay). This means that there is less to go around, and thus services and products require less of it to buy.

Why Do We Have Feminism?

Simple: we have feminism because most White European men support it. Now many women support it too, but women mostly follow men in everything. 

Now to give you an example. I read about a right-wing Italian party poised to win the coming election. Its critics even suggest it's fascist. It is (or was) called "Brothers of Italy" and is led by a woman. She declares she is for traditional family and is a mother all the while vying for the highest political position in the country. She is against quotas but pro female equality. I mean how more traditional can you get?

This is a party which has popular support in a Catholic country. Of course, there are online antifeminist pockets where you can read that women shouldn't vote or be a president and  most/ all should be housewives instead. But it's not how the majority of the Western people think, and it's a fact. Yes, I understand the power of media, propaganda and laws but look at countries like Turkey. Their laws are secular, too, and in many ways similar to ours, with some exceptions. And yet, their culture and way of life are different. 

Their elites are often secular just like over here, but the people are still quite religious while here in the West many openly mock Christianity and Christians and we don't say anything because we are taught to always turn another cheek. I'm not talking about violence here, mind you. But if you wouldn't let someone insult your mother why do you keep silent when they insult your faith? 

Well, I guess many Western so-called men would let their mother be insulted, too and keep their peace. 

So you could go back and forth and blame globalists, bankers, lying media, others -ists etc etc but in the end, our society is the way it is because the majority are fine with that.

Scotland Starts The War On Period Poverty

 Boy am I glad the UK left the the EU. Unfortunately, Scotland plans to break off and rejoin. All the while, things are getting so bad over there that women (can we even use this word still) are apparently not able to afford a pack of sanitary pads without government subsidies. I understand inflation and stuff, but here the cheapest products used to cost about 50 cent and are like 1 euro now and you generally need 1 pack a month. Even a family with 4 teenage daughters still living at home could surely afford it?

Luckily, we do have brave female politicians ready to save women from horrible poverty which prevents them from buying tampons:

 The Bill was initially brought forward by Labour health spokeswoman Monica Lennon and passed in November 2020, and is intended to eliminate period poverty and help households under financial strain.

 It was unanimously approved by MSPs after winning the support of the Scottish Government and the other opposition parties in Holyrood and became law earlier this week. 

Now comes the fun part: different regions have to hire "period dignity officers" to distribute free sanitary products and the first officer hired is a man who wants to start an open discussion about periods and menopause. I mean which man wouldn't like it?

 Mr Grant told the Dundee Courier: 'I'm absolutely buzzing about it.

'It's definitely pioneering as Scotland is the first to do this.

'It's about making people aware of the availability of period products for anyone of any gender, whenever they need it.

'And it's important whatever we do is done with dignity, so people know that there's no judgement.'

Of course...

Dear British, can you keep Scotland, please, we have enough idiocy going around as it is!

Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire

 A review of sorts. This is actually the 1st of Potter books which I found really interesting. Probably because HP and his friends are getting older so there is some teenage/family drama added and also, because the story is more fast-paced and has more action and intrigue than the previous three. 

It starts with someone plotting an attempt on Harry's life and ends with the Dark Lord's return to power which sets up the stage for the upcoming war in the wizard world. Severus Snape is a somewhat more ambiguous character in this book as Harry learns that Professor Dumbledore has his own reasons for trusting him. 

Harry comes across as a real hero, he is noble, generous and courageous and he wins the magic championship even though he is the youngest contender. He fights a duel with Voldemort and not only escapes but also recovers the body of his friend with a great risk for his own life. The only girl contender comes up last, btw. 

 Of course, there is some liberalism in it, too, like discussing discrimination and, believe it or not, slavery. Because some of us still don't know it's wrong, I guess. Half of the book is devoted to Hermione's social justice crusade of freeing the house-elves yet there is some ambivalence about it, too, as others don't share her enthusiasm. 

Plus, she is kinda prejudiced herself, in the case of Mr. Crouch. Anyway, I kept thinking that were the book written today, the main character would be probably a girl, and half of the schoolchildren wouldn't even be ethnically British. J.K. Rowling has fallen from grace with the modern progressives lately, Twitter wouldn't even take action when she received death threats. 

The main drawback of the book? It's still a story about witchcraft. Read it at your own discretion.

Heat Wave

 We are in the middle of a heat wave, the real one this time as the temps will stay above 30*C for several days. It's kinda warm right now, but the nights are getting longer so it's bearable. The airco hasn't been on yet, but it's quite uncomfortable in the bedrooms at night. 

Well, as long as it stays under 35*C I guess we will be fine. Planning to spend the most of the weekend near water. But it does make you very lazy. I think instead of effort posting I'll just post some vacation pics tomorrow:)

Should We Enable Overweight People?

 This from 2 days ago:

Talk show host and comedian Bill Maher railed against the pro-obesity 'body positivity' movement, saying that not only is it pathetic, it's a national security risk...

 "We’ve gone from fat acceptance to fat celebration. That’s new. That is new," Maher said. "To view letting yourself go as a point of pride? We used to at least try and be fit and healthy and society praised those who succeeded"...

"At some point acceptance becomes enabling, and if you’re in any way participating in this joyful celebration of gluttony that goes on now, you have blood on your hands," he said, adding "You can make believe you’re fighting some great social justice battle for a besieged minority, but what you’re really doing is enabling addicts – which I thought we decided was bad."

I see it all the time online nowadays, not so much in real life. Now, there is no reason to be mean about someone's weight, but fat overweight and especially obese people should be encouraged to lose weight and to try to lead a healthier lifestyle.

They shouldn't be told that they are "beautiful and gorgeous" or "fine the way you are" because it's emphatically not true, and neither are they healthy. 

When you watch some of UTube vids where people show their grocery shopping, you realise that they don't get obese because of "seed oil" or "corn syrup" or "gluten" or even "meat" as vegans claim, or bad genes; but chiefly because of their love affair with processed food, snacks, fizzy drinks, and all sorts of cake, cookies, pies and other sugary junk. 

The success of such diets as paleo or gluten free lies in a simple fact that they exclude this type of foods, not in some sort of "ancestral diet magic", and in portion control. 

I should say it's especially typical for Americans, judging by these videos, that and the lack of fresh fruit and veg in the diet. Here we still have the dinner concept of meat/fish, potatoes and 2 veg; not an oversized burger plus a whole pile of French fries and 2 tomato slices, accompanied by Cola XXL and an ice cream. 

If you are normal weight, you don't have to totally avoid this stuff, just minimise it and you'll be fine. This, and start moving. And for those who need a gentle nudge, avoiding such diseases as diabetes, cancer and heart attack should be motivation enough.

Infanticide Is Nothing New

 and it is tied to the decline of religion, morals and female emancipation:

Greek women participated actively in the cultural pursuits of the time, and contributed to letters, science, philosophy, and art. Aristodama of Smyrna gave recitals of her poetry throughout Greece, and received many honors. Some philosophers, like Epicurus, did not hesitate to admit women into their schools. Literature began to stress the physical loveliness of woman rather than her worth and charm as a mother; the literary cult of feminine beauty arose in this period alongside the poetry and fiction of romantic love. The partial emancipation of woman was accompanied by a revolt against wholesale maternity, and the limitation of the family became the outstanding social phenomenon of the age. Abortion was punishable only if practiced by a woman against the wish of her husband, or at the instigation of her seducer. When a child came it was in many cases exposed. Only one family in a hundred, in the old Greek cities, reared more than one daughter: “Even a rich man,” reports Poseidippus, “always exposes a daughter.” Sisters were a rarity. Families with no child, or only one, were numerous. 

The downfall of Greece

Global Warming And Coal Industry

 While on vacation, we visited an area in Germany where they used to mine coal. I'll post pictures later. The last mine was closed somewhere in the mid-1970s. Europe industrialised on coal, however later the industry was demonised as contributing to global warming. Yet, in the 1970s global warming wasn't heard of, so I guess it was "pollution" or something similar, I didn't really look into it.

I just keep wondering whether pollution back then and now global warming is the real reason behind destroying the coal industry or was the closing of the mines  the 1st step in the ongoing campaign to deindustrialise the West and turn it into a "service economy" as a part of a larger globalist project?

The truth is that in the mid-20th century the miners had strong unions and achieved many rights. I once read someone talking about his family online, his uncles were coal miners in Britain in the 1950s or thereabout, they enjoyed high quality of life, vacations, good pensions, only had to work for like 20 years and were all single income families, with like 4-5 kids each.

When these workers got on  strike, they could paralyse the whole country, which the government obviously didn't like, and neither did the financial capitalists behind it. So the whole branch of economy was eliminated. The powers that be of that period then had a genius plan to buy gas from a neighbour, the same neighbour that is now turning off the tap. It's working great, isn't it??? 

A strong country is a self-sufficient country, something which so-called Western elites appear to have forgotten, yet they are mostly sheltered from the consequences of their policies which are now causing inflation and instability for the common folks.

I realise some Americans are so afraid of "socialism" that they'd rather side with predatory financial institutions and big business than with working people, but here in Europe it's neoliberal economic policies which are driving population replacement through immigration, feminism and other social ills. They are also behind the recent attacks on the farmers, who constitute a real force.

The corona years taught us a bit about which sectors of economy are really important and which can be closed for like a year and nothing happens. Schools were closed and parents homeschooled. The whole of entertainment and hospitality branches were closed and nobody cared. Yet, when our government was planning to give the employers the power to enforce vaccine mandates, something happened. The dockers of the Port of Rotterdam went on strike and blocked one of the harbours for several hours.

After this, there was no more talk about vaccine mandates. Strange how it works, isn't it? So, everybody is free to draw his own conclusions. I drew mine.

Medieval Festival Part 2, Evening

 

We were greeted by the Duke without heir and his musicians



Sword fighting


These two guys really liked it



I thought the colours of this tent really cheerful


More musicians


When we walked past them again, these guys switched to some sort of  halberd or whatever the heck it's called and kept going:




A girl band:)


and a beautiful sunset



Their bread smelled so nice, I had to buy one. They baked it right there on the spot:


Tasted great, too!


In the cellars senior citizens were getting drunk tasting wine

We left around 11p.m. but the party was still going on!

It was a great weekend.
