Kentucky schools censor ‘Charlie Brown’ Christmas
A school district in Kentucky has ordered all administrators under its jurisdiction to remove religious references from Christmas productions, leading one facility to censor its planned elementary presentation of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” to blot out the Gospel of Luke read by little Linus.
Norway seizes kids over family's 'Christian indoctrination'

A social media campaign is surging around the globe – tens of thousands already have signed a petition – in defense of a family whose five children were seized by the Norwegian government because of “Christian indoctrination.”

The case was profiled just hours ago by the Christian Institute in the United Kingdom, which advocates for religious rights.

Norway’s child welfare services, the Barnevernet, seized Marius and Ruth Bodnariu’s two daughters, two sons and subsequently their baby, Ezekiel, the report said.

Social services agents and police took the family’s two oldest children out of their school without their parents’ knowledge and hid them in an undisclosed location.

Then the agents and officers went to the family’s home, “where, apparently without any documentation, they seized their two sons and arrested Ruth – who they took to the police station along with baby Ezekiel. Marius was arrested while he was at work and also taken into custody.”

The parents were interrogated but later allowed to return home with their baby but no other children. Then the next day the baby also was seized, the report said.

Weeks passed while the parents were denied contact with their children. They just were told that the children “had integrated well into their separate foster homes and didn’t miss their parents,” the institute reported.

Finally, a lawyer obtained by the parents accessed some of the case documents and discovered the parents were accused of being “radical Christians who were indoctrinating their children.”

An online petition created on the family’s behalf already has collected nearly 27,000 signatures.

It says: “Please support this family reunite with their children! On charges of ‘Christian radicalism and indoctrination’, their five children were abusively taken away by the Norwegian government! The parents were interrogated and asked not to publicly reveal the situation so they wouldn’t aggravate their case! They are just a normal Christian family trying to raise their children in the knowledge of God! There is no documented or otherwise abuse of any kind in this family!”

Commenters voiced their outrage in various languages. One, Jana Holomkova of Portugal, wrote, “The Kingdom of Norway should consider to alter the name to ‘The Kingdom of Norway – Nazi.’”

Holly George of the United States wrote, “This is sick, what a world we are living in!”

Other comments came from Romania, Canada, the United Kingdom, Spain, Norway, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Italy, Luxembourg and Ireland.

“Words fail me that this is happening,” said Fiona Long of Harlow, England.

The campaign also included a Facebook page, which declared: “Norway, return the children to Bodnariu family!”

A post there from Daniel Bodnariu, Marius’ brother and a church pastor, expressed thanks for those concerned about his brother’s family.

See what American education has become, in “Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians Are Using Government Schools to Destroy America’s Children.”

He explained the action was initiated by a director of a school his nieces attend.

The girls are “challenging,” talk a lot and will not comply [with the ] school,” he explained. “But they are creative and smart.”

He said the girls, at the prompting of officials, confirmed occasions of corporal punishment but insisted there was no “abuse.”

And he warned that someone can make a telephone call and parents “wake up with … police at the door” and no option but to prove they are good parents.

He said Marius had worked as a professor of computer science in Romania. When he married and moved to Norway he worked as a professional designer and engineer.

Daniel Bodnariu wrote that government officials are destroying the family. “God have mercy.”

On the Facebook page, Mircdea Novac warned: “If you are a Christian and you go on vacation in Norway with your children you may risk coming back without them! … The ‘Aryan society’ doesn’t include Christians. Didn’t we understand anything from history?”

On that page, too, was a letter from Peter Costea, Ph.D., president of the Alliance of Romania’s Families to Norway Embassy in Romania.

The organization is “very much disturbed by what we conclude is a de facto confiscation by the Norwegian authorities of the Bodnariu family’s five (5) children,” he wrote.

He wrote of the Norwegian government’s decision to keep the children in foster care.

“We promote the right of biological parents to raise their biological children without state intervention. Once the state hijacks this relationship, the whole of society suffers and slides down a slippery slope.”

He wrote that based on information from those involved in the case, “leading questions” were asked of the children and that the family “has been accused of spanking its children.”

“The authorities translated this accusation into child abuse, which is the farthest from the truth. Biological parents have the inherent right to reasonably discipline their children. The fact that Norway has banned the corporal punishment of children does not mean Norway is right in this matter and the rest of the world wrong.”

He noted Romania only escaped the totalitarianism of the Soviet Union a generation ago.

“The excessive zeal of Norway’s Barnevernet [social services agency] reminds the whole of Romania of the inhumane practices of its totalitarian past. We can only hope that Norway will not drift in this direction.”

See what American education has become, in “Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians Are Using Government Schools to Destroy America’s Children.”

He also pointedly raised the issue of the government’s criticism of Christianity.

“In derisively commenting on the faith of the Bodnariu family, the Norwegian authorities have insulted 28 million Romanian Christians worldwide. Norway has lost the Bodnariu case in the court of public opinion. It will take at least a generation before Norway regains its respect with the Romanian people.”

He said: “What happened to the Bodnariu family in Norway would not have occurred in today’s Romania, a country which only a generation ago freed itself of the totalitarian regime. … We call upon the Norwegian authorities to immediately reunite Marius and Ruth Bodnariu with their children and to cease violating their parental rights.”

The Christian Institute noted that the family’s lawyer “pointed out that the Barnevernet had abused their power and broken Norwegian law by failing to provide documentation and separating a breastfeeding baby from its mother.”

An initial hearing days ago resulted in the government agency rejecting the family’s concerns.

The Facebook report said the family, “while seeking God’s will,” is considering their next course of action.

The conflict arises on the heels of a decision by the Supreme Court in neighboring Sweden not to allow parents Christer and Annie Johansson even to see their son, now 14.

He was “state-napped” from the family when he was 7 because he was being homeschooled.

Word of the court decision comes from the Home School Legal Defense Association, which has been working with other groups, including the Alliance Defending Freedom and lawyer Ruby Harrold-Claesson of the Nordic Committee on Human Rights on the case involving Domenic Johansson.

He was taken by force from a jetliner on which he and his parents were planning to move from Sweden to his mother’s native India. The initial charge were homeschooling, which was legal in Sweden at the time, although officials later added claims that his vaccinations were not up to date and he needed fillings in his teeth.

The Johannsons haven’t had custody of their son since he was taken by police and social workers, and they haven’t even been allowed to see him since 2010.

Michael Donnelly, the international homeschooling organization’s director of global outreach, said: “This is more of the same cold, callous indifference we’ve seen in the past from the Swedish Supreme Court. This court had multiple opportunities to correct a gross injustice, and each time they have turned away.”

He said the Swedish state has “destroyed this family and, sadly, even if the court agreed to hear the case and overturn the decision – the harm has had been done is virtually irreparable.”

WorldNetDaily Pundit Burt Prelutsky: 'Bomb Mecca Off The Face Of The Earth' [TW: Islamophobia, Hate Speech]
WorldNetDaily columnist Burt Prelutsky writes today that he has an ingenious but “politically incorrect suggestion” of how to defeat ISIS, namely that the U.S. “bomb Mecca off the face of the earth, not concerning ourselves in the least with collateral damage, letting the Muslims know once and for all that our God is far more powerful and, yes, vengeful than their own puny deity.”

WorldNetDaily columnist Burt Prelutsky writes today that he has an ingenious but “politically incorrect suggestion” of how to defeat ISIS, namely that the U.S. “bomb Mecca off the face of the earth, not concerning ourselves in the least with collateral damage, letting the Muslims know once and for all that our God is far more powerful and, yes, vengeful than their own puny deity.”

According to Prelutsky, it’s time to realize that Muslims are “savages” and there’s no way we “can re-educate Muslims or show them a better way to live.”

“I, for one, am sick and tired of seeing the Islamic bullies demand our lunch money and, like a bunch of scrawny wimps afraid of our own shadow, we hand it over,” he writes. “What’s even more appalling, we then pretend we did it because we’re good guys who realized that they’re human beings just like us, and who just happen to be a little bit hungrier than we are.”

One American president after another has described Islam as a religion of peace, and Barack Obama has gone so far as to claim that Muslims helped create America and also played a major role in space exploration, although both claims are as false as his vow that we could keep our doctors and our insurance plans if we liked them. Islam was never peaceful. From the very beginning, those who refused to accept Shariah law and to bow down to Mecca were killed.

Unlike Christianity which says that we should treat others as we would wish to be treated, to love our neighbors as ourselves and to be our brother’s keeper, Islam’s message is a threat: Convert or perish.

Whenever I see the so-called Muslim moderate Dr. Zuhdi Jasser show up on Fox, I am reminded of the well-dressed, well-spoken representatives of CAIR, the terrorist organization that attempts to pass itself off as a benevolent society, as if it were the Islamic equivalent of the Shriners.

Dr. Jasser keeps telling us that Islam is a wonderful religion that has been hijacked by a handful of thugs. Inasmuch as they have committed countless atrocities in the name of Allah in Spain, France, Egypt, England, Russia, Israel, Syria, Iraq, Java, Yemen, the Philippines, Lebanon, China, Austria, Italy, Argentina, India, Kuwait, Scotland, Japan and the U.S., that is some handful.

Those like Dr. Jasser who talk about their wonderful religion having been hijacked are lying through their teeth. Suggesting that there is nothing wrong with a religion whose Quran is a handbook for terrorism is reminiscent of those fools who keep insisting that communism is perfect, and that the only problem with it is that it’s never been done right, whether in China, the Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela, Mongolia or North Korea. Believe in Marx’s utopia, the idiots insist, not your own eyes.

My own politically incorrect suggestion is that we remove ISIS from the face of the earth, hopefully as a joint effort with every other nation it has threatened or attacked, and that we then bomb Mecca off the face of the earth, not concerning ourselves in the least with collateral damage, letting the Muslims know once and for all that our God is far more powerful and, yes, vengeful than their own puny deity.

It’s harsh, but they’ve been asking for it for over 1,400 years, and it’s time they got it. I, for one, am sick and tired of seeing the Islamic bullies demand our lunch money and, like a bunch of scrawny wimps afraid of our own shadow, we hand it over. What’s even more appalling, we then pretend we did it because we’re good guys who realized that they’re human beings just like us, and who just happen to be a little bit hungrier than we are.

The notion that we in the West can re-educate Muslims or show them a better way to live by our example is foolish in the extreme. It’s not just our movies or our music or the fact that we live in a post-ninth century world that they hate. It’s our art, our culture, our technology, our Judeo-Christian values, our tolerance, our treatment of women, even, for all I know, our love of dogs.

The idea that we can civilize these savages is beyond ludicrous.

It would be easier to domesticate snakes and raise them for their milk.

Real Actual World Net Daily Columnist Fantasizes a Trump Presidency, Swiftly Achieves Orgasm

“On the first day the new president – in a year’s time, after his swearing in – would do the three things he promised he would do immediately: end ALL of Obama’s executive orders, stop Obamacare and institute Health Savings Accounts, and cut the head off of the snake called ISIS. In other words, from Day 1 we would have an acting president, again. His concrete plan to defeat, not just contain, the caliphate in Syria would be unleashed in a reign of power coordinated with many other willing partners. It will be called Operation Roaring Lion (borrowed from Hosea 11:10), and its objective will be a quick (one month) end to that plague.”

There are… a few problems with this, but the biggest problem is “acting president”, which doesn’t mean what you think it means. (source:

The second biggest is thinking that it’ll take a mere month to beat Daesh, the last time we thought we’d be in and out of Iraq, we kinda stayed for years and helped make the power vacuum these guys rose from.

“Day 2 would see the complete emasculation of all the costly and nonsensical laws and regulations that impale Americans and their business opportunities. The day would also see a drop in the corporate tax rate to the lowest level in decades. Trump would then stop corporate inversion and bring back over a trillion dollars of American investment from overseas to be invested in new jobs here. Late in the day he would put a shovel in the earth, breaking ground for the new wall on our border with Mexico, to be paid for by a tax on Mexican oil. The wall will be technologically impossible to penetrate. At bedtime he would change America’s broken visa immigration program.”

Pffhahahahaha, oh lord, oh, Mexico will TOTALLY pay for our wall. Not only that, but Trump will personally put the first shovel into the ground himself. (As if Trump would do manual labor, the man’s a billionaire businessman.)

“Day 3 Trump would start by endorsing the Second Amendment and ending gun control. Then he would roll out a comprehensive plan to immediately rebuild America’s military. It will reflect the voice of the generals and admirals and reposition America for strength. Specifically, it will deliver the world’s most formidable fighting force on the land, in the air, and on the sea. It will also put China, Russia and North Korea on notice. All of America’s international trade deals will be up for renegotiation, and burden-sharing will be effected with costs born by those countries we defend. The Iran deal would be rewritten in our interest, and Gitmo would be reopened.”

Except for:

A) Gun control isn’t explicitly against the 2nd amendment, and we, in all likelihood, need a compromise.

B) Our military is fine, despite uncertainty about exactly how large the budget it, it’s more than enough to protect us adequately.

C) Gitmo never even closed, you stupid wanker.

“On Day 4 Trump would announce the Keystone pipeline and American energy self-sufficiency. He would change the U.S. tax code and implement his tax reform plan. It would lower taxes for everyone and especially the needy and middle class. As a flatter tax, it would also end all the expensive gimmickry called tax planning and evasion. There would no deductions (except mortgages) and no loopholes. The corporate lobbyists would be out of a job. No one will need lawyers and accountants to do taxes any longer. The estate tax would also be repealed, at midnight.”

Fox News, one of the more conservative channels out there has its concerns with Trumps tax plan. (source:

As there are legitimate concerns about the pipeline’s potential effects on the environment, as the way we’d get the oil through it is from fracking, which is suspected to cause earthquakes and has been shown as polluting water sources.

“Day 5 President Trump would announce a balanced budget and enact the line item veto. He will meet with the speaker of the House to say “we won’t do business the same old way.” All spending will progress in Congress as separate authorization bills, and there will be a firm cap on the debt ceiling. He will also announce a pledge, called “The George Washington Pledge,” whereby every House member and senator will sign a contract not to run for more than two terms. Like our founding president, this will return America to a republic without an entrenched “political class” and will allow those in public elected service to literally return to their own Mount Vernons to pursue private lives, rather than decamp in the nation’s capital for a lifetime. Anyone who refuses to sign it will be hounded out of office. And Trump will also announce that no elected or civil servant can ever lobby the government after leaving office – full stop. It would be made retroactive.”

I’d certainly like less corrupt politicians, but just because they sign or don’t sign a pledge shouldn’t be the basis upon voting people out. It should be more for poor performance.

“Day 6 will see the end of both the Department of Education and its Common Core, and the curtailment of the EPA. All funding for education will be reallocated to the states. This decentralization and empowerment of people, where they live, will be a continuing theme of Trump’s administration as an act of subsidiarity. Private education will be funded at the same level as public education, and parents will be given the freedom of choice.

The country will be turned around in six days.”

Pffft, holy crap, is this whole thing really going where I think it’s going?

“On the seventh day, as in the biblical Genesis story,”

Yes! Oh yes, it did! It made a comparison to God, yes! He literally broke the rules of the bible for the Donald. That is some dedicated circlejerking!

“after Trump bans late term abortion and defunds Planned Parenthood, the president and the nation will rest. The president will encourage all Americans, as is our tradition, to give thanks to God, ask for forgiveness, be generous and attend the religious institution (or none) of their choosing. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done (Genesis 2:3).

America will be Great, again!”

And thus, Teddy Malloch of WND splooged all over his plaque depicting Trump on a crucifix with the inscription of “’We need to build a wall’ - Two Corinthians”


Wingnut Daily Writer Discovers Furries, Flips His Shit

“The latest deviancy they’re trying to mainstream

Exclusive: Phil Elmore sees ‘furry’ perversion as next crack in society’s foundation

Emily Gaudette, writing for Inverse, said it best early last month: “When Disney released an explanatory teaser for 2016’s ‘Zootopia,’ one could almost hear the sound of a billion DeviantArt accounts whirring to life. … The film’s teaser alone reads like an explanation of the furry manifesto: that anthropomorphized animals can be sexualized and identified with as easily as humans. … Could it be a coincidence that Disney chose a fox protagonist for its first fully anthro feature, considering foxes are arguably the most popular ‘fursona’ cited by furries? Many furries name the hero of Disney’s animated Robin Hood, also a fox, when recalling their first sexual feelings for anthropomorphized animals.”

Wait, what? Yes, you read that correctly: Disney’s new film, “Zootopia,” is arguably an attempt to mainstream “furry” sexuality – the practice of dressing up in fuzzy animal mascot costumes in order to engage in one’s perverted, prurient practices. This column has profiled the intersection between “furry” perversion and left-wing politics before. Already, the “otherkin” movement, in which various losers redefine themselves in terms of the animals and fantasy characters with which they “identify,” are posting lists of their preferred pronouns on their self-absorbed blogs. That’s where it starts. The more society in general becomes aware of this movement, the more it will creep into the mainstream of popular culture. Once lodged there, it will be impossible to root out, and society will be that much weaker for it.

When the debate over Obamacare produced the “Pajama Boy” meme, right-thinking people reacted in horror at the emasculation this imagery represented. It juvenilized young adults in a way that any real grownup would find repugnant. That is, after all, what the push toward societal acceptance – be it for furries, “otherkin,” “bronies,” transgenders, or some other sexually delusional perversion – is all about. If masculinity is the fuel on which society runs, on which innovation occurs, on which industries are built and on which wars are fought to protect a free people, then feminism, liberalism, furries, bronies, transgenders and the Star Wars cantina of progressive freaks with body image issues and self-esteem deficits is the sugar in society’s gas tank. Progressives hate themselves, so they invent new sexual personas and new deviancies to keep themselves entertained. Liberals hate families and decency, so they champion sexual perversion and child molestation while holding it up as viable “other” sexuality. Can there really be any doubt that the majority of “furries” are likely pedophiles?

As social media is used to promulgate countless delusional, perverted indulgences, society suffers. By embracing “furries” and other perverts, we are producing a population of incapable, weak-minded children. As our culture sags under the weight of these useless Pajama Boys and Pajama Girls, it is no wonder, then, that our foundations are beginning to show serious cracks. The mainstreaming of “furries” is the furthering of liberal destruction of society. It presages the extinction of the rational, responsible adults who once formed the backbone of our nation. This destruction started on social media, and it is there that this battle was, is and will be fought.”

There… there is so much wrong with everything about this I’m not exactly sure where to begin with it.
