People would understand better the popular fury against the witches, if they remembered that the malice most commonly attributed to them was preventing the birth of children. – G K Chesterton
At least 60 women have joined the BirthStrike movement, which encourages women to refuse to have children because they believe the earth is in crisis due to climate change. Members of this newly formed group believe it would be unjust to raise children in a world that could look vastly different than the world they grew up in.
We’ve come a long way, baby: now to not having babies because the air might be hotter a hundred years from now. There is an insanity at the bottom of all of this, and I can only describe it as a hatred of life. We have people – many, many millions of people – who are so miserably unhappy that they just can’t stand the thought of people just, you know, living. It gets them upset…and, so, they come up with twisted ideas like late-term abortion, assisted suicide and, now, refusing to carry out the basic task of producing the next generation.
I know precisely why these people hate life, of course. It is plain as a pikestaff: they have forgotten about God and so have no hope. All else flows from that. If they’d just remember God for a moment, they’d recover hope and then stop killing babies and oldsters and would joyously welcome their own children into the world.
The sick and twisted times we live in all stem from the same thing: forgetting about God. Sozhenitsyn noticed it decades ago. Once you take God out of the equation, what purpose can life possibly have? It is either greedily grab all you can, or kill yourself in despair. No God, no point to living – it is all just a mechanical and pointless process. Pray for these poor fools.
I encourage all progressive women not to have children. And of course by the outward appearance of most of them, I don’t think they have much to worry about.

Right, but let’s not allow this to happen, ok? The last thing this world needs is more progressives.
Those “doctors” are not going to get away with the murder of those babies. They’re going to give an account to God Almighty for each and every one of them. He’s going to bring every one of those children to their memory when stand before Him on Judgement day. God hates the shedding of innocent blood. I know people don’t like to think of God as someone who is a vengeful God, they like to think of Him as a loving God, which He is, but He is also a Just God who judges sin, and exercises His supreme authority upon it. He will forgive them if they will turn away from their sinful ways, and truly repent and ask God for His forgiveness, which He’s already done through the atonement of the Cross that Christ gave His precious blood on for all sin, and ascended back to the throne at the right hand of God.
Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him, He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised and we did not esteem Him.
Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened not His mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgement, and who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgressions of My people He was stricken. And they made His grave with the wicked— But with the rich at His death, because He had done no violence, nor was any deceit in His mouth.
Yet it lleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days. And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand. He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities. Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His soul unto death, and He was numbered with the transgressors, and He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
So yesterday, our resident progressive linked to this website published by some gender fluid lesbians in Seattle:
AND IT LINKS TO FOX NEWS !! So there must be some validity, right? I mean all conservatives pledge allegiance to Fox, right RG?
Aside from the fact that the crime that Trump is alleged to have conspired in has is never revealed, I am guessing it is the payoff to Stormy which is at most a campaign violation and a fine.
But RG is convinced this is “the beginning of the end” for Trump which CNN, MSNBC, and the NYT have been breathlessly anticipating for 2 years now.
If there’s one thing you can count on from a progressive, it’s irrational hysteria over meaningless issues.
Hey RG, do you Trump is a racist?
I never said “the beginning of the end.” It’s bad form to make up quotes.
I would have linked to an MSNBC clip, but I figured you would have already seen it.
Oh I like this:
Ryan Magers, 19, filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives in Huntsville, Alabama. Magers listed the unborn child he conceived with his girlfriend as a plaintiff. Madison County Probate Judge Frank Barger ruled that the unborn child that Magers calls ‘Baby Roe’ can be named as a co-plaintiff in the lawsuit because of the passage of a November ballot initiative, known as Amendment 2
I just want to remind the sexually confused progressives like RG that it does take two to create life, and each party should have a say.
Doubt that this lawsuit will go anywhere as the abortion happened 6 months before the law was passed. Interesting idea though, get a woman pregnant then force her to give birth.
Interesting idea though …. have sex with a man then kill his baby
I just want to remind the sexually confused progressives like RG…
Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts, Cluster.
They haven’t precisely forgotten about god, they have just assigned themselves the role…
Let’s never forget who Democrats are:
The 14th Amendment, giving full citizenship to freed slaves, passed in 1868 with 94% Republican support and 0% Democrat support in Congress, and the 15th Amendment, giving freed slaves the right to vote, passed in 1870 with 100% Republican support and 0% Democrat support in Congress.
They just now have the black folks on their economic plantation …. that’s all. If only the slaves would have been gender fluid, Democrats may have helped them a little more right Casper?
“The 14th Amendment, giving full citizenship to freed slaves, passed in 1868 with 94% Liberal support and 0% Conservative support in Congress, and the 15th Amendment, giving freed slaves the right to vote, passed in 1870 with 100% Liberal support and 0% Conservative support in Congress.”
Fixed it for you to make it more accurate. You are welcome.
Revising history again Casper?
Casper, you capitalized the word Liberal in your post, which indicates that you are talking about the political ideology of moving all control to a Central Authority. Will you please link us to some sources of information about the allegiance of Democrats right after the Civil War with a political ideology that did not develop for another 30+ years? I’m sure it would be enlightening.
Seriously, Cappy, you really need to put down that shovel. You are in so deep already, you don’t need to keep digging.
The terms Conservative and Liberal, relating to American politics, refers to two different POLITICAL models—–the first believes that the federal government must be severely restricted as to size, scope and power with most authority left to the states or to the people, and the latter to a political structure in which the federal government can, and must expand beyond the delegated duties assigned to it by the Constitution and further limited by the 10th Amendment to encompass whatever goals and agendas anyone might want.
Conservatives, believing in the Constitution, also believe in process—-that is, that when a change is called for it must be accomplished through the proper process—in this case, by formal amendments to the Constitution. This is seen in the support, in Congress, by Republicans, and the Democrat rejection, of these amendments.
Now we all know that you are both politically illiterate and blindly passionately committed to a political structure you don’t even understand but love because it validates your personal need to be hostile and snotty—but seriously, Casper, claiming that the political structure which, in the United States, has always been profoundly racist is also the one that voted overwhelmingly to respect the humanity and rights of black people is seriously stupid.
But we see this all the time. We used to have a troll who insisted that the Republican support for equal rights was really Dem support, just that for some reason at some time the parties just switched names.
Instead of coming up with stupid and bizarre explanations for the human rights offenses of the Left by trying to play a semantics game and switching names around, why don’t you just study, process and judge the true history and agenda of the Left and then reject them in favor of decency?
Not revising history at all. Liberals started the American revolution and later freed the slaves. They brought about the 40 hour work week and the 19th amendment. Not to mention Social Security and Medicare. The parties have changed positions over the years.

As usual Casper, you’re confused about something very basic, which given your history as an elementary school teacher is disheartening to say the least. You’re confusing Classical Liberals with modern Liberals. Not even in the same ballpark. Classical Liberals have much more in common with modern Conservatives, particularly Conservative Libertarians, while modern Liberals have much more in common with Karl Marx.
So you are incorrect that the parties have changed positions over the years. Classical Liberals/Conservatives have always been pro-freedom, and Liberal/Progressive Democrats, for most of their history, certainly for the last 160 years, have been anti-freedom.
Casper is grasping to the misguided notion that “Democrats” were historically not racist, and that notion could not be further from the truth. Even today, Democrats continue to display their outward racism vis a vie their identity politics. They believe that being against illegal immigration is racist. This line of thinking is based on the idea that ALL illegal immigrants are dark skinned people and that’s just not the case. They believe that voter ID is racist. This line of thinking is based on the idea that minorities are incapable of obtaining the proper ID to vote and that ALL people without ID are dark skinned people. Just these two positions which are held strongly by Democrats reveal their blatant racism – soft bigotry.
And then in their attempt to cloud the issue, they want people to believe that the party’s magically switched positions. Democrats are stupid and delusional.
Casper, as Amazona explained to me the other day, you and I don’t get to define conservatives, and conversely Amazona doesn’t get to define liberals. I do find it amusing, though, that Amazona continues with this fiction that only conservatives believe in the constitution.
and conversely Amazona doesn’t get to define liberals
Someone has to; you certainly can’t — or won’t.
What’s funny is that Casper and RG still think their opinions matter. They don’t here, and certainly don’t within their own ranks. Here’s what the new Democrats think of Nancy Pelosi. Imagine what they think of RG and Casper.
“Nancy is a typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men,” said Ms. Sarsour Tuesday on Facebook.”God forbid the men are upset — no worries, Nancy to the rescue to stroke their egos.”
Sorry boys. They only want you if you serve them. Fortunately I think both of you are servile.
“Casper, as Amazona explained to me the other day, you and I don’t get to define conservatives, and conversely Amazona doesn’t get to define liberals.”
RGRG2, I don’t read anything Amazona writes. She hasn’t had an original thought in over a decade. She makes up people’s positions then attacks them for positions they don’t have. Not worth my time.
Cluster, the Democrats of the 1860s were extremely racist. They were also conservatives in that they wanted to keep the institution of slavery. Ending slavery was a liberal position.
Voter ID is not racist in itself as long as everyone has access to free IDs. Making it difficult to get IDs to keep certain groups from voting is racist. Every American should have the option of voting.
Casper lies. And he does read my posts, if only to find out if I have talked to someone else in Casper, Wyoming who knew him when he was posing as a middle school teacher there. His ego can’t handle hearing what people there think of him.
When he whines that I have not had an original thought in ten years, he Is really just ticked off that I have not only been consistent in my support for Constitutional governance I have always been able to counter his silliness.
Also, by pretending that he doesn’t read anything I post he thinks he can dodge my questions. Not that he has ever fooled anyone.
That’s what Leftists do. And when they can’t lie about history, they simply erase it.
I have no problem with people who believe in climate change or even people who drastically alter their lifestyle, ie., refuse to have children because they believe the world won’t be inhabitable in 12 years. Numerous short periods with predicted cataclysmic ends have come and gone over the last half century, and not one has materialized. AOC’s 12 year period will come and go as well, and then someone else will make a similar claim. My problem is someone making a specious claim, not based on any hard evidence, forcing me to change my lifestyle to accommodate their idiocy. So far that hasn’t happened, but it’s certainly not for lack of trying on their part. It’s the main reason we can’t let them achieve total power.
Someone–I forget who–asked for a link to a conservative who supported cap-and-trade.
Well, if you think that McCain was a Conservative, then I see why you’re confused. According to the American Conservative Union, McCain’s lifetime ranking was 81 out of 100, putting him 38th out of 51 GOP senators, but his last year’s score was 57 out of 100. Only 4 GOP senators scored worse. the longer he was in the Senate, the more liberal he got.
hahahahahahahahaha McCain = conservative hahahahahahahahahahaha
According to the ACU, McCain got these ratings from the organization itself:
2006: 65 percent
2007: 80 percent
2008: 63 percent
2009: 96 percent
2010: 100 Percent
2011: 80 percent
2012: 92 percent
2013: 52 percent
2014: 91 percent
So according to the ACU he was pretty squarely in the conservative camp.
But since you disagree, let me ask you, what was it about his ideology or political philosophy that didn’t make him a conservative?
His views on Climate change for starters. Even The Atlantic thought McCain was almost a Democrat.
Climate change is an issue. I am asking what it is about his poltical philosophy or ideology that makes him not a conservative.
I don’t disagree with The Atlantic article.
No, you silly bunny….I said A CONSERVATIVE . Try to keep up.
RGRG2, The conservatives on this blog were all in for McCain when he was running for president. He lost them when he lost the election to Obama.
That is a bald-faced lie. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I never liked McCain and didn’t vote for him. I voted for Palin for VP, but I left the President block blank. Since Obama beat him handily, I’m guessing a lot of Conservatives felt the same way I did.
