Insanity & Doom Update LVIII — Special Midweek Doom

There is more Doom that we can shake a holy-water-doused crucifix at. Maybe we should have both Saturdays and Wednesdays Doom devoted.

Item How three scholars gulled academic journals to publish hoax papers on ‘grievance studies.’

Such hoaxes are unethical, and The Wall Street Journal doesn’t condone them.

Good grief, what effeminacy. But of course we all remember the effect of the Sokol hoax. That’s right: beside a few giggles, none at all.

Item The Senate Should Not Confirm Kavanaugh: Signed, 1,000+ Law Professors (and Counting)

The left is now screaming like sissies that Kavanaugh reacted angrily after being hit. This is more effeminacy. I pray you see that. Anyway, that “professors” are against him is, these days, a sign he must be a good man.

Item California, working hard, discovers a new way to destroy culture, industry.

“CA Gov. Jerry Brown signs bill requiring corporate boards to include women, saying despite flaws in measure “recent events in Washington DC– and beyond– make it crystal clear that many are not getting the message” on gender equality.”

It’s one small step from mandating the testosterone-deficient be given board memberships to mandating, say, trannies join the club.

Item Britain’s most senior female bishop says Church should stop calling God ‘he’ because it can put young people off religion (Thanks to reader Mavis Emberson for the tip.)

Britain’s most senior female bishop said the church should avoid referring to God only as ‘he’ after a survey found young Christians assume God is male…

The Bishop of Gloucester, the Rt Rev Rachel Treweek, the Church’s first female diocesan bishop, told The Telegraph: ‘I don’t want young girls or young boys to hear us constantly refer to God as he,’ adding that it was important to be ‘mindful of our language’.

It is not the first time Rt Rev Rachel Treweek has made these claims having said: ‘God is not to be seen as male. God is god,’ in the past.

In 2015 Rev Treweek refused the title of ‘right reverend father’. She has now claimed that non-Christians could feel a sense of alienation from the church if the image of God is painted as solely male, and public announcements are made in only male language to describe God.

Of course, after re-re-re-…-re-acknowledging God is not a man nor woman, a fact which nobody denies, we’ll have to toss out all references to God the Father, and forget the painful fact that Jesus was a non-female. The real question is: who could have foreseen putting a women in charge of religion would have resulted in her calling for the purging of male metaphors?

Item Mormon blogger says men are ‘100% responsible for unwanted pregnancies’ in powerful Twitter thread (Thanks to reader Kunzipjn for the tip.)

A blogger from Oakland, California has become a viral sensation after sharing her views on abortion on Twitter, in which she argues that “all unwanted pregnancies are caused by the the irresponsible ejaculations of men”…

Blair points out that biologically, men cannot impregnate women without experiencing an orgasm and therefore concludes that “getting a woman pregnant is a pleasurable act for men.”

Yes, we have long passed the point at which banalities and idiocies are passing for wisdom. But this is real bottom-of-the-barrel stupidity. A foolish woman discovers that sex can lead to pregnancy, is shocked, and conveys her shock to Twitter, whose readers also convey shock.

We began, as a species, with the full knowledge that sex was for procreation. We eventually came to the idea that sex was for pleasure and procreation an inconvenient side effect, one that could be cured by harmful drugs or by killing the side effect. But this foolish woman, and the explosion of myriad “orientations”, signal we are reaching the point where pregnancy is becoming a mystery. “I have no idea how I got pregnant,” said Thot One. “Did you have sex?” asked Thot Two. “Yeah,” replied Thot One. “But what’s that got to do with it?”

Item Pedophile’s Decapitated Corpse Found On Judge’s Doorstep After Bail Hearing In Aurora, Illinois

William Smith, 28, from Aurora, Illinois was discovered in the early hours of Tuesday morning, decapitated and slumped against the front door of the judge who had granted him bail in August.

Smith was arrested last month following allegations by his then girlfriend that he had raped her 8-year-old daughter.

After a police investigation in which Smith was found in possession of child pornography, he was arrested on two counts related to child pornography and one count of child molestation.

After being charged, Smith walked free from the court after the judge controversially ruled that he did not pose a threat to the local community, and he raised the $30,000 bail required to trigger his freedom…

Aurora police say they are currently “following leads” but have yet to make any arrests for the murder.

Note carefully that this was the perp’s corpse and not the judge’s. This is a case of the government not seen doing justice. We wonder how this judge will rule on the next similar case.

Item In attempting to rebut Rusty Reno’s dismissal of his book, Jonah Goldberg manages to invoke Hitler. He did wait a few paragraphs, though.

Item Eight of Iran’s women’s football team ‘are men’

Eight of Iran’s women’s football team are actually men awaiting sex change operations, it has been claimed.

It is impossible to change your sex. And all the men are ugly.

  1. “Britain’s most senior female bishop…” There’s the problem right there.
    Female
    Bishop

    The C of E has thrown out the Bible and turned their backs to God. They have outlawed men. All that remains is Woman and her faithful adviser, the Serpent.

  2. ” Pedophile’s Decapitated Corpse Found On Judge’s Doorstep After Bail Hearing In Aurora, Illinois”

    Heard this one may, sadly, be old-fashioned fake news.

  3. Item In attempting to rebut Rusty Reno’s dismissal of his book, Jonah Goldberg manages to invoke Hitler. He did wait a few paragraphs, though.

    I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t understand much of either of the writers’ words.

    I really wasn’t convinced that Jonah improperly invoked Hitler. The book seems to be an historical treatise and Hitler “supported” one of his points about the dangers of nationalism (didn’t seem to be a violation of Godwin’s law). (I was NOT SURE that you would not have sided with Jonah over Rusty.) Jonah seemed critical of Trump (or Trump’s people), but he also freely disparaged the left and the champions of the left. Maybe you’d have to read the book (don’t think I will). I honestly couldn’t thoroughly read either of the articles.

  4. All this talk of effeminacy has made me realize that this is the perfect term to describe a constellation of Trump’s character defects. Since this is part of our doomlike current situation, it’s on topic.

    Consider:

    He’s highly emotional, and reacts hysterically to any hint of criticism;

    He’s obsessed with his physical appearance, especially his hair. In several photographs of state events, bobby pins are visible holding his hairdo in place. Booby pins. On a “man”.

    He fawns over strong men, desperately seeking their approval, and is consequently used and discarded by them. That the strong men he favors are authoritarian foreign heads of state drives our foreign policy.

    There’s more, but you get the idea.

    Trump shows all the character traits typically ascribed to the “effeminate” by those who are fond of that term.

  5. Lee:

    Interesting observation … I THINK he’s held his own on Foreign policy … have an example ?

    But can’t disagree with the rest of it

  6. “and then we fell in love. No really, he wrote me beautiful letters, and they’re great letters. We fell in love.”

    That’s Donald Trump talking about his relationship with the North Korean Dictator. After handing Kim Jong Un a stunning propaganda victory and getting dumped at the curb like a used-up prom date in return, our effeminate president still has stars in his eyes. He thinks that Kim Jong Un really cares about him.

    “I’m worried that we’re being played here. Now I’m telling you, President Trump, enough with ‘I love you,’ ”

    That’s Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of Trump’s most loyal supporters, getting desperate.

    Say what you will about Mrs. Clinton (and there’s a lot to say), she would not have been as effeminate as this.

  7. Lee :

    I thought that might be where you were going.

    One of the joys and horrors about Trump is that you never know where he’s coming from.

    Pretty sure that that was all tongue-in-cheek (so to speak in double double entendre when talking about male lovers), but he said it and it makes your case.

    Cheers

  8. Yep! she’s a girl after my own heart.
    The actress died a few months ago.

    …and as for the love crap has to stop?
    Nobody was delivering anything on North Korea and nobody expected anything.
    Anything is a bonus.
    Trump speaks freely. Someone’s got to do it and not just for kicks.
    Someone who is in a position to change the public’s perception of freedom of speech and someone who can break the PC stronghold.
    Then, just as I predicted, the followers can follow up and look oh ever so much more educated in his wake.
    It was so easy to predict.

  9. Last chance for one more comment:

    To reiterate about Lee’s comment …

    I believe Trump was actually channeling Seth Rogen’s “The Interview”

    They fell in love as well.

  10. Trump uses that kind of language all the time. It’s a New York thing.

    Last chance to clarify for the readers who haven’t read every comment on the blog, or every post, like me.

    On God being male or female. Obviously he is neither, since there is no need of such practicalities as far as anybody can tell.
    However there is the little problem of the imagination or personal experience of God. He is a male, not in appearance, in my humble opinion, but only in so far as it is possible to understand God.
    He should be described as he and I do not agree with the bishop at all, not for a moment.

    Nor do I think women should be bishops! Alas, nobody asked my permission as I would have asked God and he already said,
    “no” In uncertain terms.

  11. “It’s a New York thing.”

    Born and raised, and that’s news to me.

    In the NYC of my youth Trump was considered just a bad businessman, super tacky, and a figure of ridicule with a monster insecurity complex.

  12. Joy

    So the Vicar of Dibley? No?

    I’ve had female Bible teachers … we had a female ” (associate) pastor” at a non-denominational
    No real problem there

    Yeah … I attended a Lutheran? Episcopal? … service with some friends
    The whole vestment-thing was totally uncomfortable to me

    I would have objected to the Vicar for that issue (plus she was such a horn dog)

    We have the DVDs and the “specials” and the “special episodes” were fairly uncomfortable.

  13. John B,
    Yes, you are right, although having been to services with women vicars, it didn’t go well. The services don’t seem right, they lack the gravitas, somehow.
    Dawn French was sending up a lot of aspects of church life and village life in the vicar of Dibley.
    I enjoy much of it. my Mum’s a big fan, she was a Sunday school ‘teacher’ (helper)…the reason we were Christened. My family are Catholics on my Dad’s side and he’s been telling me off for sticking it to Catholics lately! That’s really because of Philomena. The irony, my Dad’s atheist.

    Yet my maths teacher who had some influence was a missionary, methodist, I think. So it isn’t that women can’t be teachers in the church. They just can’t be vicars!
    I also found many of the scenes in Dibley uncomfortable, cringeworthy. I’m afraid I have been compared to Alice Tinker, which wasn’t said in jest! It’s not true!

  14. Wow, Lee, that explains your sharp whitt.
    I was warned by my sister that you’re all rude. I never found that at all.
    Trump has grown on me rather a lot.

    He’s forcing conversations over here that were previously banned, unofficially.

  15. “Donald Trump is not, has not been, and will not run for president of the United States. Nor will he campaign for the Republican nomination. He is a cynic and egomaniac whose only purpose in hinting at a run is to garner adulation and attention to feed his thin soul.”
    W M Briggs roughly April 29th/3oth, or so, 2011.
    Manners and such seem to have taken a nose dive in importance since those happy days or yore.

    There was another damming quote for all those who predict doom and gloom lacking guts, or some other wisdom.
