Christian host on transgender rights: ‘Liberals demand public access to rape your girls’

Is it me or are RWers getting more and more violent with their rhetoric on the average? Like they are trying to push a conflict? I keep thinking of Rwanda more and more

Dr. “Chaps” Gordon Klingenschmitt, a Navy chaplain who turned to hosting a Christian Internet show after being court martialed, warned his followers this week that liberals wanted to visually “rape your girls” by giving transgender people equal rights.

In an email to supporters over the weekend, Klingenschmitt lashed out at a recent Maine Supreme Court ruling that said a transgender girl should be able to use the school bathroom that corresponded to her gender.

“‘Transgenders’ want your children,” he wrote in the email obtained by Right Wing Watch. “Liberals demand public access to rape your girls, at least visually in public bathrooms, or to expose themselves to your girls at school, without parental consent or protection of any kind.”

Klingenschmitt advised parents in Maine to “immediately remove their children from public schools, and teach them at home.”

Breitbart contributor blames deadly shooting spree on sex education and hippies

Colleges, universities, and sex education are to blame for a deadly shooting rampage carried about by a 22-year-old self-described virgin, according to a Breitbart contributor.

Conservative blogger Warner Todd Huston wrote Saturday on the Wizbang blog that the mass shooting – which left seven dead and seven others wounded in Santa Barbara, California – served as “yet another example of how college is fast become a detriment to this country instead of a positive force.”

He cited remarks made in a chilling YouTube video posted by the gunman, Elliot Rodger, who blamed his rage on his inability to attract sexual partners.

“College is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure,” Rodger says in the seven-minute video. “But in those years I’ve had to rot in loneliness. It’s not fair. You girls have never been attracted to me. I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me. But I will punish you all for it.”

Anti-woman website predicts more Elliott Rogers if society doesn’t provide them with sex

Just wow...hysterical and pathetic at the same time. maybe acting like a normal human being might be a start...

A website popular with the online Pick-up Artist community responded to Elliott Rodger’s murderous Santa Barbara rampage, saying it could have been avoided if Rodger had ‘game,’ like they profess to possess, before concluding that “more people will die” unless society provides men with more “sexual options.”

The Return of Kings article, written by ‘Roosh,’ goes to elaborate lengths to explain that the PUA-hate community that Rodger was a part of held him back from learning the “masculine” art of seduction – which they call “game” – and, combined with the “American media, the blogosphere, men’s rights activists, and progressive organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center,” Rodger was encouraged to hate and ultimately murder women.

“All these groups are complicit for creating a cultural environment that allowed this massacre to occur, ” Roosh wrote. “It is them (sic) who must accept responsibility for these seven deaths and make the moral change to their ideologies in order to prevent such an act from happening again.”

Stating that Rodger was “undoubtedly mentally unstable and required professional supervision,” Roosh concludes from watching Rodger’s YouTube videos that he displayed “an above-average intelligence and the propensity to connect with individuals in certain cases.”

Tea Party favorite Dr. Ben Carson calls Veteran Affairs waiting list scandal a ‘gift from God’

Appearing on Fox News, former neurosurgeon and Tea Party favorite Dr. Ben Carson, described the scandal currently enveloping the Department of Veterans Affairs as a “gift from God.”

Using the problems at the VA, involving backlogged waiting lists full of veterans seeking medical care, Carson attempted to link the scandal to the Affordable Care Act which he opposes.

“I think what’s happening with the veterans is a gift from God to show us what happens when you take layers and layers of bureaucracy and place them between the patients and the health care provider,” Carson explained. “And if we can’t get it right, with the relatively small number of veterans, how in the world are you going to do it with the entire population?”

Carson previously called Obamacare, “…the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery.”


Ted Cruz drops bombshell: Senate Democrats to ‘repeal the First Amendment’ this year

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) drew audible gasps Thursday when he told gathering of Christian conservatives that Democrats intended to amend the Constitution to limit free speech.

“When you think it can’t get any worse, it does,” Cruz warned at the Watchmen on the Wall gathering of pastors sponsored by the Family Research Council.

“This year, I’m sorry to tell you, the United States Senate is going to be voting on a constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment,” Cruz said, to the audible shock of the crowd.

The Tea Party-backed senator said Senate Democrats intend to vote this year on Senate Joint Resolution 19, which would effectively undo the unpopular U.S. Supreme Court decisions on campaign financing in the Citizens United and McCutcheon cases.

Does evil exist and, if so, are some people just plain evil?

You would have to be naďve to believe that evil exists, right? If you were asked to come up with examples of evil villains, you might think of the Emperor from Star Wars, Lord Voldemort from Harry Potter, or even Dr Evil from the Austen Powers films. Evil characters belong in horror movies, fantasy fiction and perhaps also in religious texts, but surely not in the real world.

This kind of skepticism about evil also crops up in serious disagreements over morality. When US President George W. Bush denounced the September 11 terrorists as evildoers, many people rolled their eyes and dismissed his claim as simple-minded and out-of-date. The philosopher Phillip Cole, the psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen and the historian Inga Clendinnen have suggested that we ought to drop the concept of evil.

These thinkers are not skeptical about morality as a whole. They are not suggesting “it is all relative”, or that morality is some kind of sham or illusion. Their skepticism is focused on the category of evil in particular. Are they right to say that there is no such thing as evil?

What do we mean by evil?

In answering this question we must survey the claims people make about evil, and ask what these people take evil to be. While it is true that the word “evil” can be used to refer to a malevolent supernatural force, many of us use “evil” without intending it to have any supernatural connotations.


Iran billionaire executed over $2.6B bank fraud

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A billionaire businessman at the heart of a $2.6 billion state bank scam in Iran, the largest fraud case since the country's 1979 Islamic Revolution, was executed Saturday, state television reported.

Authorities put Mahafarid Amir Khosravi, also known as Amir Mansour Aria, to death at Evin prison, just north of the capital, Tehran, the TV reported. The report said the execution came after Iran's Supreme Court upheld his death sentence.

Khosravi's lawyer, Gholam Ali Riahi, was quoted by news website khabaronline.ir as saying that the death sentence was carried out without him being given any notice. Death sentences in Iran are usually carried out by hanging.

"I had not been informed about the execution of my client," Riahi said. "All the assets of my client are at the disposal of the prosecutor's office."
