The Attack of the 50 Foot Trans Tyrants

Feb 7, 2019

Is it just me? It seems that so much of today’s sexual insanity happens to be as believable as the stuff of science fiction. The radical trans movement is spiralling out of control, and many sensible folks have to wonder if reality is now being replaced by whacko Hollywood sci-fi flicks.

Consider just one memorable low-budget film as an example. In the 1958 B film “Attack of the 50 Foot Woman” we had this perfectly plausible plotline: a jealous woman who happens to have been turned into a giantess by an alien takes revenge on her philandering husband, killing him and his new hussy along the way, before meeting her own untimely end.

Hmm, sounds perfectly legit to me – shoulda been nominated for at least something at the Academy Awards! Alas, it won no Oscars or Emmys or anything else as far as I am aware. But it still has a committed cult following. If the story line might seem a tad hard to believe, it surely is far more realistic than the moonbattery coming from the trans mafia.

Indeed, all of this trans madness is now as ubiquitous as it is bizarre. But it is not just its sheer lunacy that is so mind-numbing: it is having some very real negative consequences on plenty of folks, just as the poor husband and his chicky babe bore the brunt of the 50 footer’s rage.

Get a load of some recent attacks by the 50 foot trans militants. Well, they may not be quite that tall, but they are leaving their mark just as effectively as if they were. I just learned of the first example moments ago, and it is a real lulu: it seems one young popular gamer has been given the flick for daring to suggest that as a matter of basic biology, you are either male or female.

One write-up puts it this way:

A popular online gamer who regularly broadcasts on streaming platform Twitch claims she has been permanently banned from the platform for stating her “beliefs” that “there are only two genders”. HelenaLive says her partnership with the video game streaming platform — owned by Amazon — was terminated and her account shut down after her comments were deemed “offensive toward the transgender community”.

The website lets gamers broadcast their live action to fans, which typically includes a split screen so viewers can see the player as well as the gameplay. Users can be banned for a range of indiscretions ranging from overtly skimpy outfits to offensive speech. In an email from Twitch, later posted online by HelenaLive, the streaming service said it was her third strike in as many months, citing she had been reported twice “for hateful conduct in the last two months”.

Hmm, “I believe in biological reality.” “You are a hateful bigot – die scum die!” Um, are we sure this is not just another Hollywood flick? Sadly it happens to be all too real. And since we are dealing with really hateful young women, let me mention another.

The headline is another ripper: “Young mother is barred from her local pub for wearing a T-shirt saying ‘Woman: human female’ after a complaint that it discriminated against transgender people.” OK! The report opens:

You might have thought it was the most innocuous item someone could wear: a simple black T-shirt bearing the dictionary definition of woman as ‘human female’. But a young mother has been barred from her local pub after a complaint that the words discriminated against transgender people.

The unlikely new front line of the ongoing war between feminists and transgender campaigners is the snug Five Clouds Tap and Bottle in the historic market town of Macclesfield. Rebekah Wershbale said she was ‘stunned’ when a barwoman at the pub informed her she was banned because of the definition.

Ms Wershbale said: ‘She told me that the T-shirt I was wearing was upsetting people because it was transphobic and not inclusive so I was barred. What she meant was that I was somehow offending men who say they are women because my T-shirt did not include them in the definition of a woman. There aren’t even any transgender staff or patrons at the pub. It’s crackers.’

Oh dear. But wait, there’s more. One other recent headline is also worth checking out, as we ask if this too is the stuff of a new B movie: “D.C. restaurant fined $7,000 after asking transgender woman for ID before letting her use bathroom”. I kid you not. The story goes this way:

A D.C. restaurant will pay $7,000 as part of a settlement after an employee tried to stop a transgender woman from using a women’s restroom last summer, D.C.’s attorney general said this week. Charlotte Clymer, a transgender woman and activist with the Human Rights Campaign, which advocates for LGBTQ equality, was asked to show identification June 22 when she tried to use a women’s restroom at Cuba Libre, a downtown Cuban restaurant and rum bar.

Clymer said the employee followed her into the restroom, then a manager also asked for identification when she emerged from the restroom. After a confrontation with the manager — at which point she pulled up the D.C. Human Rights Act on her phone — she said she was told to leave, and then called police. The D.C. Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on gender identity or expression in housing, employment, public accommodations and educational institutions.

OK, whatever. In these el cheapo sci fi movies reality is replaced by fantasy. It is strawberry fields forever, where nothing is real, and nothing to get hung about, to borrow a line from some long-forgotten pop group. But if I have to choose between guys wearing dresses who think they are female, and a jealous 50 foot woman, I think the latter might get my vote.

If so many people were not being so adversely impacted by these trans tyrants, all this might be good for a laugh. But this is serious business, and things are getting out of control real fast. As American Paediatrician Michelle Cretella put it:

Transgender ideology is not just infecting our laws. It is intruding into the lives of the most innocent among us—children—and with the apparent growing support of the professional medical community. As explained in my 2016 peer reviewed article, ‘Gender Dysphoria in Children and Suppression of Debate,’ professionals who dare to question the unscientific party line of supporting gender transition therapy will find themselves maligned and out of a job.
www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/pediatrician-transgender-ideology-has-created-widespread-child-abuse

Even the medical community is not exempt. I don’t know about you, but when I go to see a doctor, I want someone who is grounded in reality. MD’s with both feet planted firmly in mid-air are just not going to get a visit from me. The same with most of my other normal activities.

When I hop on a plane to head elsewhere, I want the pilot to actually believe that a dependable jet in fact has a left wing and a right wing. If he thinks it can get by with two left wings, good luck to him, but I sure ain’t flying with him. I would rather take my chances with the 50 foot woman.

Will no one deliver us from all this B film trans madness?

  • This is getting worse by the day. Really fear for our children’s future.

  • Yes Jo it is terrifying really – especially if you have children.

  • When people can be persuaded to believe the absurd they can also be persuaded to commit atrocities. And atrocities are being committed against vulnerable adults and children already.

  • I was just thinking …. in this fantasy world we now live in, it seems anything goes, and logic has nothing to do with it. If someone from fifty years ago were to read what you’ve just described, Bill, they’d think you were from another planet. And yet in the crazy world we now live in, it’s par for the course! I’m sorry, but there’s no way I’m going to please the trans community by agreeing with their gender dysphoria rubbish. Soon those who go along with this craziness and teach it to their children will be the only ones left to support the State Schools. The rest will be forced to home school their children. And as for our Marxist Premier, we can thank him for the appalling effect this is having on the next generation.

  • No Bill, it’s not just you!

  • What you are experiencing Mr M is the godlessness in the society you find yourself in. I think it would be easy to produce a flow chart of the failing society. it would have these steps of failure in.

    1. The church becomes infested with liberal theology.
    2. The pill that was thought to be a form of birth control was actually a Pill to make women as immoral as men.
    3. Feminism is some sort of mental disorder as it made men the enemy of women when plainly they are the husbands of women. My SRE teacher hates me saying that so I like to practice it as often as I can.
    4. The church had a battle it couldn’t lose (same-sex marriage) but it lost the battle.
    5. The church married the culture but it was already married to Jesus so was in a bigamous relationship.
    6. Human flourishing was held in Christianity Christianity= the marriage between the church and Jesus. Jesus has grounds for divorce.
    7. We have had some of the very best preachers and teachers that men could provide in the last 100 years, however, the above nullified their fruit.
    8. Parents didn’t pass on the baton as they were confused who to hand the baton to, more often than not it was handed to the culture that only succeeded in dropping it.
    9. The godly are looking more and more to secular man for permission to worship the king.
    10. The godly, for all intents and purposes, replace Jesus with the government.
    11. We arrive at your blog shell shocked.

    The solution, well we are living in Rome in early Christendom, whatever Christians did then, is what we need to do now.

  • Yes quite right Sarah. As to point 5 I just read this in my morning reading in Leviticus 18:2-3:

    “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘I am the Lord your God. You must not do as they do in Egypt, where you used to live, and you must not do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. Do not follow their practices.”

  • This is a brilliant analysis, Bill…must share on FB.

  • Being of necessity a regular consumer of Australia’s health services can have its ‘downs’, but one of the ‘ups’ is the opportunity to hear of the current thinking, and experiences, of our medical professionals. During the ‘same-sex marriage’ survey/campaign, I asked my specialist of his views, and he replied he had no problem with SSM, but when it came to the transgender thing, he was quite aghast at it all, and particularly alarmed about the likely repercussions in his medical field. Soon after that, I overheard a conversation between two medical professionals about one of their number who had gone to consult colleagues because a female patient’s test results showed signs of her having prostate cancer. “How can this be?”, he asked them, utterly bewildered. Didn’t you know, they replied, that the woman used to be a man …

  • Sarah’s post is excellent! You can only be what you are. Human DNA is different for men and women. Wealth or poverty is part of identity. I could identify as rich when I am really just getting by. I identify as a millionaire. It is my right to have a million dollars now! If you do not treat me as a rich person I will sue you. I expect to be able to jump queues. If I can not jump queues I will sue you! I identify as a VIP. I must have privileges at all times. I am a transrich VIP. (In reality I am not rich.)

  • Thanks Bill, as always you unfold all the hidden deception and sin in the church with your descriptive and interesting phrases. We need to be repenting and putting on sackcloth & ashes and on our knees and faces crying out to Him for forgiveness. We need the old time Hell, fire and damnation preachers who told it like it was and put fear of the Lord in us.

  • And for what it is worth, you are now world famous Sarah Clark!

    https://billmuehlenberg.com/2019/02/08/christian-bigamists/

  • Bill all I can see in that comic is a 50ft man trapped in a woman’s body playing with his cars! Just can’t understand how you couldn’t see the reality of gender fluidity even back in 1958!

  • I live in a small town of 650 people, mostly liberals who openly hate me because of my beliefs as a conservative Christian, including some from the church a use to attend. I have a hard heart according to many! Anyway we have many homosexuals that live here including on transgender, man now claims female. All the people talk about how brave he is. I refuse to call him a her. He struts his transformed self around town and looks like a clown, a male clown. He posted signs around town talking about his transformation and that he must be addressed with his new female name, handing out his business card with his girl name and post cards with his before and after photos. There is nowhere in America you can go to avoid these type of weirdos. They are worshiped by the left. I would love to have my acres of heaven with just me and my bride. I feel alone in a world gone completely gone crazy. By the why I live in Oregon on the cost!

  • World famous, wow, Mr M you are so kind. I was a little surprised, in that, well, let me demonstrate, try this, take the last two weeks of your articles or longer if you want, imagine those being fed into me or anyone for that matter, now I have a question what would you get out of a person if you were to do that? Me! lol. Mr M, you and others are teaching me and when I learn from your teaching you shouldn’t be surprised. There is a fruit from what you do and I happen to be that fruit so are the others on this site too. Your labours are not in vain, God sees them and I/we benefit from them. you are a godly man with the gifts to teach and enlighten, therefore, it’s your role and responsibility to do so. If you do not it could be that the fruit tree does not bear fruit and I’m not talking about yours but mine.

    I can’t explain the roller coaster ride of being 15 today. I hardly get any encouragement from my teacher’s someday’s (in fairness that normally occurs when I have poured my wrath over them), yet a teacher thousands of miles away hears the same comments and responds so differently. I understand that is because our worldviews do not cause conflict, but I wonder how conflict can be found in love thy neighbour.
    Thank you so much for the kindness and generosity Mr M, it really is appreciated.
    Sarah. xx

  • Hi Helen,
    Thank you for your kind comment.

    The shortcut to your comment is as follows.

    I am rich . . . . I identify as a millionaire, therefore, I have a million pounds in the bank.

    Now go and try and withdraw it. lol

  • Another good discussion on how the West is going downhill, and the results of the Cultural Revolution of the 1960’s, is the latest conversation on john Anderson’s website, where he chats with Dr Gavin Ashenden, at: https://johnanderson.net.au/conversations-featuring-the-rt-revd-dr-gavin-ashenden/
    It is a bleak forecast indeed for the future of the West.

    Regards,
    John

  • >>Mr Love,
    I know just how you feel Mr Love since I experience my culture confusing intolerance of the norm as an expression of their virtue signalling for the abnormal. I was particularly saddened to hear you say you feel alone. Well, you have your sister in Christ on your case now lol. In a godless society what you are experiencing is to be expected, in fact, it’s positively good since it confirms the legitimacy of Gods word. In my culture teen and preteen girls are offered as a sacrifice to the god of political correctness and tolerance. That is exactly what you would expect from a godless society, in fact, there is no logical reason why that wouldn’t be so. Christianity isn’t a political system, its a system for living in harmony with God, no God, then that man who considers himself a woman has no biological value to evolutionary human advancement, whatever personal value that would be, Hitler’s values perhaps, what about PolPots, what about an abortion doctors if you happen to be a baby in the womb? Therefore, in a godless society, there is no reason whatsoever for that man-woman to respect your values and customs, equally, he has no logical or rational reason to expect you to have any value whatsoever for his. so it just needs pointing out to, him-her which value system would he like you to use on him the Judeo Christian values or ones that you make up as he has done.

    That’s the easy bit now the more difficult bit.

    You do not need a solution to your problem since you are the problem, don’t jump to some sort of unnecessary defence as if you do you have miss understood me thus far. So, you are-

    1. A Conservative in a liberal town. I suspect you are a conservative in a Social Democratic town. I think you have a two-party system in the USA, don’t you?

    2. You are a Christian in a godless society.

    1. Means you support the wrong football team so it’s useful to understand why they support Manchester United and you support Liverpool!

    2. You are experiencing hell, perhaps so that you may experience Heaven.

    Both 1 and 2 will self-destruct in your favour, as they are built on foundations of willful ignorance and self-delusion. The reason it’s taking so long is because the MSM is the crowd around the naked king shouting how finely he is dressed and you are not shouting loud enough to counter that, but even if you were there is a time and a place for the truth to come out, we experience this ourselves how many times have you read the same Bible passage without hesitation only to find one day something that has been there all the time that you have missed, it’s those like Mr M who are masters at finding and pointing to those passages isn’t it. If you were to break down what the issues are and your perceived ineffectual response, it would be-

    It isn’t your role to dress the woman as a man again, but to tell him the good news of the gospel. It’s important to break down why a man would want to be a woman or even consider how that could ever conceivably take place. I think it has to do with self-worth and the inability to delay gratification. Both are prevalent in godlessness. Your self-worth, mine too is built on Christ and we understand the greater comes later.

    Now, your necessary tool to overcome the godlessness predicament is the church, however, if I read you correctly your church has become infected and you are no longer there. First off, you should not walk out of a church that is under attack, the issue isn’t the man dressed as a woman but the church that isn’t a church dressed as a church. The purpose of a church is so we may gather to worship God, get biblical teaching and build one another up. out of that comes family and marriage that may seem odd perhaps. The man who is searching for the woman in himself is simply looking for an identity and self-worth, of course, he is looking for the wrong thing or put more factually he is looking for the right thing in the wrong place. If you were, say a homosexual or a man who wants to be a woman those things are unachievable in any meaningful way, for instance, what would it mean if I a heterosexual girl, born with all the eggs I will ever have, a body able to take the egg to a child; yet what if a man does not recognise that in me? I would then have no self-worth. I would simply be a girl who only has the appearance of a girl since my potential has not been realised. Now, hopefully, you are thinking what about the woman who never marries or just cannot have children, either due to her husband’s biological problem or hers, does she now have no self-worth? Well, it seems the case outside of the church, yet she may find self-worth in her own family as a sibling and often does since who ordained the family. In the church, she finds her self-worth in her family, her church family, remember, your church family is above or at least equal to your biological family since who’s bride are you?

    It could be, of course, that your church is actually behaving correctly and you have identified their love and compassion as fraternizing with the enemy. I doubt that as it seems your church and community are indistinguishable from one another (just an extension of the democratic party perhaps). You need to see the man dressed as a woman in the way my dad (family) sees me holding yet another letter from my teacher as a sinner in need of words of law and grace. My family accept me and my failings as long as my failings are seen as failings and not a reinterpretation of failing that the rest of the family has to accept or we can’t move on. This plainly can only work within, family, hence the reason the liberals want to destroy the family unit and reinvent it again with them as dad.

    So the only hope the unmarried have is found within the church since the unmarried man may invest more time in ministering to his family (church) and the woman can invest everything in the children of her family (church). You have to get firmly fixed in your head that you are a bride (a little harder for a guy I suspect) but in Mr M words the church (the bride) can’t be 85% faithful to its role it can’t even be 95% either it has to be 100% since then and only then will the Man find self-worth in his body that isn’t an abomination to him, otherwise, he will want to change it so its an abomination to God.

    That was a long way of telling you to get back to that church and kick butt. If that fails, consider putting your complains in the form of a letter and pin it to the door of the church.

    You are a man and men were made to be courageous, but remember you MUST be able to defend your wife and family to the death, yet hold you’re first born with the gentleness and tenderness of a mother. Then when the first born is ready you must do what its mother finds difficult which is stretch it and push firstborn to take risks and experience pain, especially if it’s a boy and do likewise with your church family and let your church family do so to you.

    This is quite long Mr M since I have a lot to say about everything, according to my dad, anyway! Therefore, if you want to chop-cut or edit feel free to do so. I think it was important one of our family members realised he had sisters and brothers here for him whenever he feels he is battling alone.

  • Sarah,
    What a wonderful perspective, deeply thought out and yet very compassionate. Let me explain further about the church I have attended. In May of 2018 I was diagnosed with Leukemia, a rare form at that, plus I had major surgery in September to rebuild my esophagus. I’m not looking for any sympathy but the church did not respond with even an offer to help me with the things around the house, no one checked on me or called. The true colors were reavealed. My recovery is still ongoing but God has been my therapist. I thank him every day. The attitude reflected by the church sealed it for me. I am a retired police officer and I have asked the pastor on numerous occasions to have an open prayer at least once a month for the men and women in Law Enforcement and our military. This was over a year ago, not one prayer in front of the congregation. Disappointed but continued to attend. He never talks about the horrible state the country is in. He never prayers for America, even when asked. My disappointment may be unreasonable but he is more set on curing the poor countries in the world. I have told him that pastors have forgotten America. We need to heal ourselves before we attempt to heal the rest of the world. Perhaps it will take a new awakening. Maybe the church needs to analyze itself but I thought the people are the church. He needs to, on occasion to talk about these things because they are happening in our little town but are being ignored for fear of alienating a few in the congregation that worship culture and society. No one talks about sin or a culture that is destroying America.

    Luke 4:8
    And Jesus answered him, “It is written,

    “‘You shall worship the Lord your God,
    and him only shall you serve.’”

    Your words have help me reflect on many things! God Bless you Sarah! You are my Sister in Jesus Christ! Love from the USA. Please call me Charlie!

  • Sarah,

    You are so kind! I will take your advise and ponder it! Very insightful! Let me explain why I feel the way I do. I was diagnosed with a rare cancer in May 2018, Chronic lymphocytic leukemia, related to exposure to Agent Orange during my service on the DMZ in Korea 1969-1970. 2018 was a bad year for me I had more health problems than I could imagine. A total of eight surgeries! God kept me strong, not the church. The cancer is controlable but not curable. I am 69 years old. None of the members called or ofered to help me during my illness and recoveries. My wife and daughter were the rocks.

    The small church has taken no postion on LGBTQ issues. They dare not offend or speak of such things as to create a stigma among the supporters of this perverse lifestyle or abortion. Fake Christians! I have asked the pastor many times to pray for America and the people who protect it an open congregational prayer at least once a month. He never rebukes the politicians who have dragged us into a hell of preversion and corruption. He says he wants to stay away from politics. Well, politics and politicians are the problem of our cultural demise. Church is always the same loop of groundhog day boredom. 45 minutes of worship music, interupted by the same prayer, then 30 minutes of Bible reading, same thing different Sunday! Maybe it is me! But I feel that we have fallen so far from the intent of Christianity that recovery will be painful. I read a lot of Blogs by pastors from all over the world. I thank God I found Bill! I read and study the Bible but probably not as much as I should. Bill has got me thinking and I enjoy his daily dose.

    You write very well and I enjoyed your perspective. God Bless you! I am in a physical battle and a emotional battle. This is why I enjoy this cultural watch. Your devoted brother in Christ
    Charlie Love

    Romans 12:2
    Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

  • Dear Bill

    I was blocked from the following website, the (www.facebook.com/AutismSpectrumAustralia) as I didn’t agree with a symbol that the organisation Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) posted which ( think) implies that all people with Autism Spectrum are part of the LGBTQIA+ community.

    http://www.facebook.com/AutismSpectrumAustralia/photos/a.360626021227/10156991262376228

    I was attacked by several people and called a “bigot”, “homophobe” and was accused of being “judgemental”. In the end I was blocked as I posted a picture of Hitler dressed in drag with the comments: “Nein! You ‘vill sign our marriage licenses! And you ”vill back our cakes!” I also posted a rainbow flag with a swastika. This was in response to several anti-Christian posts by someone else and the a fore mentioned accusations and for stating that marriage is for one man and one woman for the sake of children and that children have a right to a mother and a father. I also posted many other items, including an article about a woman raised by two lesbians who stated that she always wanted a father. And an article by Walt Heyer, which was dismissed as quackery along with a 60 Minutes segment from last year, about a boy who wanted to transition to a girl and then changed his mind, which was also viewed a quackery. I posted an article about a mother complaining about the Safe Schools program at Frankston High School which was seen as old news. No matter what I posted, it was dismissed and more random posts were uploaded by one antagonist which condemned Christians of paedophilia and accused me of being “homophobic” or hateful. I also posted a picture of a hammer and sickle on a rainbow flag and a picture of Lenin with the words “Confused about Social Marxism? Good, because you’re supposed to be” but I guess that wasn’t seen as offensive as the Hitler posts, as it was the Hitler posts that were the final straw?

    I finally received the following private message from Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect):

    “Hi Anne Elizabeth, while we respect free expression of opinion and discussion, we don’t tolerate hateful speech and defamatory comments, as indicated in our Facebook page House rules. You’ve now been banned from our page – please contact our customer service if you want more information.

    —————————————————————————-

    So I contacted their customer service and after some messages sent back and forth asking why all people with Autism Spectrum were place on a “rainbow infinity” symbol, along with LGBTQIA+ people and getting nowhere I received the final two messages:

    Anne, we have been extremely clear about our response to your posts and will not be entering into any further discussion with you about this particular matter.

    Thank you.

  • >> Charles Love,
    I am indeed your sister in Christ, Charlie. I do feel it’s a little disrespectful to address you by your first name but I think it would be more disrespectful to not accept your gift of your first name.

    I am aware of leukaemia since I take a little boy to first school on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays for his mum since she has another son who has leukaemia. The little boy I take to school is just 5 but I can see the effects the illness his brother has on him. Some illnesses are so consuming they reach the emotions of everyone around them right down to the smallest. I babysit as much as I can since I love children and I figure I better make the mistakes on other people’s children before I have my own lol. Little boys of 5 should be into mischief and rough and tumble which I guess his partner in crime would be his brother who is desperately ill. I have to take him right into school since he is insecure. I never have to tell him off he just holds my hand and we count all the red doors on the way to his school and all the blue ones making sure not to step on the joints in the paving!

    I have to tell you I find it difficult to help more than this since it would break my heart to see his brother suffering lack of childhood let alone suffering the treatment he has to have. I can only take the worry from the mother of getting one of her precious children to school, giving him a hand to hold and whatever love he needs for that short mile.

    This lady, the mother of this child only attends church infrequently I’m not sure if that is due to her son needing her care on a continuous basis or she is still finding her way. I was not told by my Pastor this lady needed help getting her youngest to school and I know many of the ladies in church provide transport to get her son to and from hospital appointments and they would not have been told to do that since it’s their role and responsibility to do so (it’s mine to), many of those ladies mother me in church since I lost my mum. They look to the younger that needs help and that cause me to look to help those younger than me. I do not think the pastor should tell the congregation to help where help is needed since as a family we should know who is hurting and just help. I do think however the pastor should tell the congregation off if they are not behaving like caring brothers and sisters.

    When I read what you said in this regard it made me think what do these ladies have that others do not, since I realised it was the same 6 or 7 doing the loving that means, we have a congregation of 200ish let’s say ½ are men and ½ of those are children then only 6 or 7 out of 50 are exercising their love. I asked my dad why this was so and he said if those 6 left the church tomorrow another 6 would step up to the mark, it’s just the first six didn’t need a mark to step up to, but a king. I will have to think about that.

    I think and I may be wrong here but I think those who do it for Christ willingly are “better” than those who do it willingly, Christ or no Christ. I think it has to do with unity under Christ, as the goal and the helping and love are an outcome of that. I do not think Jesus healed the sick just out of their need, but to show who he was too, as they and those around them needed healing from their disbelief. I think this, as the healed still died from some awful disease later didn’t they?

    Right, deep breath. . . Let me offer this. do you know the likely outcome if this had occurred, what if you went to your pastor at that time and said, “do you mind pastor if I prayed for my fallen comrades and the ones who by the grace of God stood and suffer to this day, it will just take a minute or two (that means you can have 4). I know if I go to my youth leader and say, can we have/do x,y and z) the outcome of that happening is much greater if I say may I arrange, x,y and Z).

    If you prayed for your comrade’s sir and I have no doubt at all that you do in your own time with Jesus, it would have a power in corporate prayer that would surpass the pastors or mine. did it occur to you that you went through all that horror so you could do that? sir, you are a courageous man, it’s something that was placed in men and some have an abundance of it and some need to exercise their courage “mussels”. The real courageous, fight, get injured, suffer the loss of limbs, or even die for the good and right, however the man who can do all of those things and hold a little baby with the tenderness of a woman or shed a tear in, corporate prayers for those he stood alongside, surpass even the courageous.

    There is no excuse anyone could make for your sisters and brothers not meeting your needs at a time when you had them, well, there is, they were failing brothers and sisters weren’t they.

    I was pleased your wife and daughter had the strength and energy not to mention a whole load of love to pay back the love and care you have offered them over the years. Your daughter and I speak as a daughter, needs to help and support daddy since if she didn’t she will only ever see the leukaemia and not the dad.

    As regards your pastor’s response to the demise of the culture and the political incompetence that does not surprise me since how can his church criticise those on the outside of the church when there is so much to be done on the inside of the church. That said and this may lower me in your estimation I do not think he should get involved in political and cultural stuff since his heart isn’t in it, the last thing we need is another incompetent pastor speaking for the church. If I was at your church I would stop all singing and music and concentrate on teaching until the congregation is strong in God’s word. I would hope that your pastor’s gift is transmitting the word in an understandable way such that it condemns and offers grace to those who want it.

    I think perhaps we expect too much from pastors in that God has watchmen like Mr M who have the skills and courage to take that load off the pastors that may cause division in the church. If you were, to be honest and you had a town meeting to voice concerns over the decline in culture would you want your pastor to speak for you or Mr M? I hope that says it all. Mr M has armour and gifts from God to do what he does, your Pastor will have gifts that Mr M does not have, although from your perspective it’s hard to see that now.

    This is what I would do if I was in your position I would write out prayers that you want to say to Jesus, spend time praying about praying, pray for your pastor and those in your church in the privacy of your room. then what I would do is ask your wife and daughter to accompany you to the church, go at a time when it’s not being used, give one of your prayers to both your wife and daughter and offer your prayers up to Jesus silently or out loud, it matters not, as where two or 3 gather in his name, Jesus will be looking over your shoulder reading your words Charlie. If you were to do that you will have helped your pastor by relieving him of that task. you may even find word gets back to the pastor and he thanks you for blessing his church with your prayers. If he should ask what drove you to do so you just tell him about Mr M and his ministry and tell your pastor you and Mr M, are just an extension of the kingdom and you are happy to help in any way you can.

    Finally, I have good news but I will need a little help delivering it to you, as I do not know the terms to use. The war we are in that you are experiencing Charlie, a spiritual war, has already been won. In the war (the only ones I have been taught about are the 1st and 2nd world wars) When the wars were won and the Germans surrendered, men on both sides were still fighting I think that was due to some didn’t know it had finished or perhaps some didn’t want to surrender I’m not sure which it was, but it matters little other than you understand when a war ends the killing and fighting doesn’t stop immediately, that is what we are now in (it doesn’t seem like it to you since you can see the battle still going on) we are now waiting for our king to reinstall his kingdom in the battlefields, those fighting on and opposed the king will be destroyed.

    You may contact me any time you want Charlie. I can also get one of the men from my church to talk with you if you prefer someone more mature and of the same sex. I will add you to my prayer list and put you on our church list too.

    With love and Gods blessing,

    your sister in Christ.

  • Anne Rasenberger,
    I read your post, Anne. you were treated shockingly. Twitter and Google are no better.

    I can top your shocking treatment with something even worse.

    The most shocking up until the above was a man got arrested for hate speech since he read out is “hateful comments” in public, the police arrested him, it was only after some time did one of the police officers realise he was reading out a speech from Sir Winston Churchill! In my location, Sir Winston Churchill! was an important man since he helped win the war.

    Oh, Anne, you may want your dad or husband to check the video link I sent you as sometimes that man swears.
