Item Why LIM wants a ban on sibling marriage. (This article is in Norwegian, a language I do not speak; therefore, I used Google translate: use caution. I quote first a sidebar on the organization in question, then the main article.)
LIM (Equality, Integration, Diversity) is a non-governmental organization that promotes immigrants’ participation, trust and belonging to Norwegian society. The organization wishes to act as a speaker of liberal and secular values ??and counteract segregation of society on ethnic or religious grounds. LIM’s overall goal is a peaceful and inclusive society, where the individual’s universal right to freedom and dignity is safeguarded.
LIM (Equality, Integration and Diversity) has published a memo with several proposals for action against honorary violence and negative social control. One of the measures is to forbid sibling marriage…
Our recommendation of a ban is rooted in two independent assessment bases. One is the fight against culture and social control, and against a structural pressure that exists in some environments that girls should marry their relatives. This maintains strong social control and restricts women’s freedom.
The news outlet is not embracing doom, but arguing for the ban. That the ban had to bruited is the problem. By the time you see a law of this sort, it’s always too late, and a sure indication there will be many indications the law will be broken. Proving, at the least, government is not the solution: culture is.
The presumed right to use and abuse something and then walk away to conquer something new is a hallmark of colonialism…
These men, particularly Musk, are not only heavily invested in who can get their rocket into space first, but in colonizing Mars. The desire to colonize — to have unquestioned, unchallenged and automatic access to something, to any type of body, and to use it at will — is a patriarchal one. Indeed, there is no ethical consideration among these billionaires about whether this should be done; rather, the conversation is when it will be done. Because, in the eyes of these intrepid explorers, this is the only way to save humanity…
The Friday before SpaceX’s launch, legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin reiterated to me over lunch that it is imperative that we talk about space exploration in terms of “migration,” rather than using words like “colonize” or “settle” when talking about going to Mars.
Through a feminist lens, Aldrin’s deliberate word choice revealed an important reality of the space race: This 21st century form of imperialism is the direct result of men giving up on the planet they have all but destroyed.
As if history hasn’t proven that men go from one land to the next, drunk on megalomania and the privilege of indifference…
This means that while men compete with each other over whose rocket is the biggest, fastest, and best, and send playthings off to become flashy space junk, women around the world are fighting to stay alive against violent assaults on their personhood — and their planet.
I didn’t quote all, but the effeminate female author (of course) managed to tie the evils of space exploration to Donald Trump.
If this article doesn’t prove to you that progressivism is both inaptly named and a sure path to cultural death, nothing will. Progressivism is the triumph of the effeminate.
Yet that was the Rev. Carlton Veazey’s task as he led a prayer in Bethesda on Monday. “God of grace and God of glory, in whom we move and live,” he said, as he opened a prayer for the well-being of the doctor and nurses who facilitate abortions at a clinic here and for their patients. “Keep them safe and keep them strong. And may they always know that all that they do is for Thy glory.”
Veazey was one of four Christian pastors and one rabbi who gathered to bless this Bethesda abortion clinic in an unusual interfaith ceremony. (A Hindu priest who was supposed to attend from a local temple, who has blessed an abortion clinic before, didn’t make it.)…
“Jewish rabbinic authorities, starting with the Middle Ages, say that a fetus is not a person,” said Rabbi Charles Feinberg, who is retired from Adas Israel synagogue, after participating in the ceremony. “Judaism has always said abortion is never murder. It may not be permitted, depending on the circumstances — how far along the pregnancy is, how seriously ill the mother-to-be is — but it is never murder. It only becomes that once the baby is born.”
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of the heavens.
Again I remind you that you never hear those who support slitting the throats of babies say, “I wish my mother aborted me.”
