Exorcism of Demon-Possessed Candies

June 30, 08

Watch and hear the exorcism of the rot-demons of decay that inhabit all godless sweeties. For it is thy consumption of such evil that causes the unholy corruption of thine once-pearly whites:

A preview of today’s sermon:

Exorcise gummy candy

I shall never repent, Inquisitor!

Exorcise gummy candy

Aiiiiiieeeee! Hey, um, I think I’ve changed my mi…

Exorcise gummy candy

FOOOMPH! The fact that it combusts PROVES it was a witch. Made of wood. Which combusts (and also floats). *quack quack*

Behold the eerie flames that burst forth from within the demon-possessed candy – that is HELLFIRE you are witnessing! Repent, o eaters of non-kosher gelatin!

Listen to the unearthly wails of the tormented demons as they are subjected to the righteous retribution of immersion into molten sulfur – the same punishment that awaits all snack-guzzling guiltbearers of the sin of gluttony!

And don’t think you idolatrous M & M worshipers are safe either!

Aaaaaaaaaa~~~~~meeeeeeeen.

Bible Passages That Oppose Homosexuality – Including the Words of Jesus and God Himself

June 30, 08

DISCLAIMER: The blog author does not in any way hate or socially discriminate against homosexual persons or their civic rights.

In the following post, he merely points out the Scriptural basis for the rejection of homosexual behaviour in Conservative mainstream Christianity. Modern socio-cultural issues related to the issue are not adressed here.

The blog author also fully supports the civil rights of each person of any religion, lifestyle or politics to practise his or her beliefs without infringing on the rights and freedoms of others.

However, he draws the line at churches, groups or individuals that make the claim of homosexuality being permitted or condoned by the Bible and Christianity – as they are in essence saying that every other church (which follows the traditional, mainstream and Scripturally-backed belief that homosexuality is a sin) IS WRONG, MISGUIDED AND HATEFULLY DISCRIMINATORY. This borders on libel and slander.

Although the blog author may not ‘understand’ the feelings and real-life challenges faced by homosexual persons, the following post does not make any claim to do so – the discussion that follows focuses only on Bible Scripture, of which the blog author believes that his understanding is adequate and correct in the case of the citations below.

OLD TESTAMENT – LAWS OF MOSES

  • The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom - both young and old – surrounded the house. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.” Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the LORD out of the heavens - Genesis 19:1,4,5,24. The story of Sodom from which we get the word sodomy (i.e. ass-banditry).

And yes, I am aware of the argument that “Sodom’s sin was about not showing hospitality, not about homosexuality”. See excerpt from this article in response:

Citing Mark Jordan’s The Invention of Sodomy in Christian Theology, Kristof states as fact that “it was only in the 11th century that theologians began to condemn homosexuality as sodomy.” The true facts are that, long before the 11th century, a number of early Jewish and Christian writers picked up on the male-male sexual activity of the Sodomites as inherently degrading. In the 1st century (A.D.) alone, one can cite among others: Philo, Josephus, and, some critics to the contrary, Jude 7 and 2 Peter 2:6-10 (on the last two texts go here, pp. 10-13, or here, section V.). Ezekiel, back in the 6th century B.C., knew the Holiness Code (Leviticus 17-24), or a precursor document, and interpreted the Sodom story in part through the lens of the absolute Levitical prohibitions against male-male intercourse (18:22; 20:13). When Ezekiel 16:49-50 describes the sin of Sodom as “not aiding the poor and needy” and “committing an abomination,” it refers to two different offenses, as the list of vices in Ezekiel 18:12 makes clear when it distinguishes these two phrases.

The Deuteronomistic History (Joshua through 2 Kings), another work of the 6th century B.C., contains a parallel story to the story of Sodom; namely, the Levite at Gibeah (Judges 19:22-25). There can be little doubt that the male-male dimension of the threatened sexual activity factored prominently in the Deuteronomistic Historian’s indictment of the residents of Gibeah, given his apparent revulsion elsewhere in the History for the consensual homoerotic associations of the qedeshim (literally, “consecrated ones”), cult figures who sometimes served as the passive receptive partners in male-male intercourse.

Finally, to assume that the narrator of Genesis 19 would have been favorably disposed to an act of consensual male-male intercourse is absurd in view of ancient Near Eastern texts that held in low repute men who willingly consented to be penetrated by other men.

  • Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable. - Leviticus 18:22
  • If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. - Leviticus 20:13
  • Judah did evil in the eyes of the LORD. By the sins they committed they stirred up his jealous anger more than their fathers had done. There were even male shrine prostitutes in the land; the people engaged in all the detestable practices of the nations the LORD had driven out before the Israelites. – 1st Kings 14:22,24
  • Asa did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, as his father David had done. He expelled the male shrine prostitutes from the land and got rid of all the idols his fathers had made. – 1st Kings 15:11-12
  • The king stood by the pillar and renewed the covenant in the presence of the LORD – to follow the LORD and keep his commands, regulations and decrees with all his heart and all his soul, thus confirming the words of the covenant written in this book. He also tore down the quarters of the male shrine prostitutes, which were in the temple of the LORD and where women did weaving for Asherah. – 2 Kings 23:3, 7

It’s quite clear that for millennia, from the foundations of monotheistic worship of YHWH all the way up to modern conservative Judaism and Christianity, homosexuality has been SEVERELY frowned upon.

But in response to these very clear prohibitions, certain parties will argue that these 3000-year old laws are outdated and obsolete.

After all, modern Christians don’t follow the other laws such as not eating shellfish, observing the Sabbath on Saturday or stoning disobedient sons. (Explanation of why not can be found in this post.)

So why the particular discrimination against homosexuality when pork chop eaters get a free pass?

Let’s take a look at the New Testament then, which is where Christians get their doctrine…

———————————————-

NEW TESTAMENT – LETTERS OF PAUL

  • Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. – Romans 1:26-27
  • Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. – 1st Corinthians 6:9-10

Ah, but even here there are protests…

Certain groups again will object that fundamentalist, conservative, bigotedly anti-homosexual groups incorrectly translate those words of Paul. They contend that what he really objects to are not general homosexuals, but male prostitutes in the service of pagan worship that were previously mentioned in 1st and 2nd Kings above. They go even to the point of sueing Bibles for ‘discrimination’ against homosexuals.

Though frankly, how doing something that the pagans were detested by God for doing can ever be considered acceptable and holy before God is a mystery to me.

And also, if the word rendered ‘homosexuals’ actually means ‘male prostitutes’, then why does 1st Corinthians 6 list BOTH TERMS side by side as separate sins? And how does this explain away all the various terms used to describe homosexual acts, such as a ‘man lying with a man’ in the earlier OT examples?

But rational and logical objections to overturning 2000 years of accepted theology and doctrine aside, where does this leave us if both Moses and Paul are disbelieved?

Why, there is only…

———————————————-

THE MAN HIMSELF – JESUS CHRIST

Let’s now look at some words quoted directly from Jesus:

  • “You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery.’ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.  – Matthew 5:27-28
  • Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” - Matthew 19:5-6
  • “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” - Mark 10:6-9

Waitaminnit… There’s nary a mention of male-male or female-female action there. What am I going on about by invoking the Appeal to Jesus argument?

But take a closer look at what Jesus is saying in Matthew 5. He is proclaiming the same stand which truly conservative Christians hold today – that any sexual contact outside of marriage, whether full penetration or ‘just looking/touching’, is a sin in God’s eyes. Even intentionally thinking naughty thoughts is a no-no bad thing.

Then look at Matthew 19 and Mark 10. Here Jesus says that marriage, as ordained by God Himself, is between a man and a woman.

And no, in the Hebrew and Greek, ‘wife’ always means ‘woman’ and never refers to the submissive male partner in a homosexual relationship. Contextual references here and here.

Jesus’ words echo the original marriage ordination by God when He first created Eve to be Adam’s spouse in Genesis 2 (see later on below), and this is further echoed by Paul who repeats the same words in 1st Corinthians 6:16 and Ephesians 5:31.

Dig even deeper into those verses – Jesus says ‘Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate’. In context, He was directly referring to the act of divorce, which desecrates the holy union of marriage.

But isn’t that also what homosexual pairings do? Replace God’s original plan for male-female marriage? Separate the traditional, God-ordained marriage institution by taking it apart it, to be put back together according to liberal humanist principles of relative morality?

So here we find the dilemma for homosexual pairings – The Biblical example only permits sexual contact within the marriage context, and the marriage context only permits man-woman pairings.

Therefore, any sexual contact between two males – or two females – is considered adultery in God’s eyes. 

By contrast, a male having sexual contact with a female would also be adultery, unless the two were married – but following Biblical principle, two males or two females cannot be joined in holy matrimony before God’s sight.

Remember too that Jesus was a great social reformer of the time. Even liberals and nonChristians agree so, taking Him as a societal rebel (though usually selectively excluding His accompanying Judaistic Monotheism background and His call to personal sacrifice and holiness).

Jesus overturned the prevailing social-religious-cultural norms of discriminating on the basis of gender, race, social standing and physical condition.

He taught by word and example that all people are equal in the eyes of God – equally loved, and equally forgiven if they simply accept His offer of redemption.

So here is the crux of the investigation: If Jesus was such a thorough reformer, why didn’t He make any mention of accepting homosexuality as well?

Instead, he uttered specific words that were specifically in line with the standard views of the time - heterosexual relationships only, within marriage only.

If Jesus was really supportive and accepting of homosexuality as certain parties argue, wouldn’t Matthew 19 and Mark 10 have been the perfect chance for Him to make known God the Father’s will?

  • ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife or husband, and the two will become one flesh.’ – What Jesus did not say, not-Matthew 19 and not-Mark 10

But nope, not a peep from Jesus about demolishing prevailing 1st-Century era sexual-behaviour prejudices.

Could it be that Jesus DID NOT consider homosexuality to be holy and acceptable in God’s eyes? And thus, intentionally did not overturn the disapproving traditional attitudes towards homosexuality?

And if He did not update or correct the traditional Judaistic views on a certain matter, then we must assume that Jesus intended for those matters to remain in the status quo even after the move from Law to Grace.

Jesus taught that all people are equally loved and forgiven in the eyes of God – but He never condoned sin of any sort. Instead, He calls us to Leave your life of sin’ if we want to genuinely follow Him.

———————————————-

AND FROM THE BIG MAN IN THE SKY…

With His words about ‘becoming one flesh’, Jesus echoes God’s original plan when He first created humankind:

  • So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. - Genesis 1:27
  • For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh – Genesis 2:24

As the meme goes, ‘God made them Adam and Eve… Not Adam and Steve.’

If God originally intended homosexuality to be the perfect, sinless plan, then why did He not just make all life of one gender? (Or for that matter, three or four genders?) Or with both sets of ‘equipment’ on each body?

And before you get into that ‘permitted because of the hardness of your heart’ argument stolen from Jesus’ words on divorce, God’s plans did not get thrown out the heavenly window with the Fall of Man:

  • As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it.” - Genesis 9:7 (God speaking to Noah after the flood), i.e. long after Adam and Eve’s sin

How can two men or two women ‘be fruitful, increase in number and multiply on the earth’ when they cannot even propagate their genes (which as many pro-homosexual groups contend are the SOLE factor influencing sexual preference)?

Or if God’s original plan was for homosexuals to fill the earth, then why did He not design men to be able to procreate with men? 

Compare:

SexPrefHered1

SexPrefHered2

The above is an example of an idiotic plan for filling the earth with a certain species, one that any fool can see is doomed to cause extinction within a single generation. 

And note that as the Hyper-Intelligent Designer who carefully planned out the entire universe and all life (at least, as fundamentalist Christians believe), God is not an idiot.

And if God intentionally designed humans to be homosexual, then why, of all things, would he design men in such a way that the most intimate act of love would have to involve sticking one’s most sensitive member into another’s orifice that is used for expelling filthy, smelly faeces out, not letting things in???

Not to mention to un-intelligent design mistake of the rectal walls being thin and easily torn by insertion of any objects, leading to bleeding and thus to the HIV infection rate being highest among gay men (60 times greater than for the general population) and 72% of HIV infections among 27,455 surveyed males being caused by homosexual encounters?

And that’s not delving into the lack of intentional biological design that allows penetration in the case of two women attempting actual intercourse.

———————————————-

IN CONCLUSION

Christianity is not the lovey-lovey, nicey-accepty, let’s-just-all-be-friends religion that shallow modern culture makes it out to be. (It is very lovey-nicey-accepty-friendy, but just not in the way modern culture wants it to be.)

Christianity is a relationship with a God who tells the factual truth then way it is – whether you like it or not, your opinion does not change reality.

And according to God’s word aka the Bible, the reality is that homosexuality is a sin-warped perversion of God’s original perfect plan.

That’s the way I see it, and from my exegesis and hermeneutics of the Bible above, that’s the way it is. (You can check out a more official analysis at Bible.org.)

Comments and arguments are welcome.

PS. See also this excellent piece by Prof. Dr. Robert A. J. Gagnon and this one by Prof. Kevin Lewis on the Biblical prohibitions against homosexuality, in particular as a refutation of the Newsweek propaganda about the Bible being pro-gay marriage.

Google Shuts Down Anti-Obama Blogs – You (and I) May Be Next

June 30, 08

Oh oh. Looks like Scott’s Blog may not be around for too much longer.

Not because I’ll be rounded up under the Malaysian ISA…

But because the entire world has turned to worshipping the Obamessiah.

From Free Republic:

Google Shuts Down Anti-Obama Sites on its Blogger Platform

It looks like Google has officially joined the Barack Obama campaign and decided that its contribution would be to shut down any blog on the Google owned Blogspot.com blogging system that has an anti-Obama message.

Yes, it sure seems that Google has begun to go through its many thousands of blogs to lock out the owners of anti-Obama blogs so that the noObama message is effectively squelched.

Thus far, Google has terminated the access by blog owners to 7 such sites and the list may be growing. Boy, it must be nice for Barack Obama to have an ally powerful enough to silence his opponents like that

It isn’t just conservative sites that Google’s Blogger platform is eliminating. For instance, www.comealongway.blogspot.com has been frozen and this one is a Hillary supporting site. The operator of Come a Long Way has a mirror site off the Blogspot platform and has today posted this notice:

I used to have a happy internet home on Blogger: http://www.comealongway.blogspot.com. Then on Wednesday night, June 25, I received the following e-mail:

Dear Blogger user,

This is a message from the Blogger team.

Your blog, at http://comealongway.blogspot.com/, has been identified as a potential spam blog. You will not be able to publish posts to your blog until we review your site and confirm that it is not a spam blog.

Sincerely,

The Blogger Team

It turns out that there is an interesting pattern where it concerns the blogs that Google’s Blogspot team have summarily locked down on their service. They all belong to the Just Say No Deal coalition, a group of blogs that are standing against the Obama campaign. It seems the largest portion of these blogs are Hillary supporting blogs, too.

All I can say is, WOW! If Google is willing to abuse its power like this even against fellow leftists, what does it plan against conservatives, the folks Google hates even more!?

Here is a list of the Blogspot blogs that have been frozen by Google thus far:

From Bloggasm:

Who’s responsible for shutting down a number of anti-Obama Blogspot accounts?

When Snedeker clicked on the link at the bottom of the message she came to another one that told her that her blog “has characteristics of a spam blog” and, because of this, it had been locked. It allowed her the chance to send an “unlock request” but told her she’d have to wait up to four business days before someone at Google could review her blog and confirm it wasn’t publishing spam.

“At first I thought it was just this random thing with Blogger’s spam bots,” she told me in a phone interview. “I thought that perhaps in their looking across the blogger universe, that I got accidentally flagged somehow. Stuff like that happens.”

But a short time later Snedeker received an email from another blogger claiming that a number of anti-Obama blogs had been “hacked” that same night. After some digging it became apparent that several Blogspot accounts had been shut down because of similar spam issues, and nearly all of them had three things in common: Most were pro-Hillary Clinton blogs, all were anti-Barack Obama, and several were listed on justsaynodeal.com, an anti-Obama website.

I spoke to several of the bloggers who had accounts locked and every single one was convinced that it was Obama supporters who had flagged the blogs in some kind of concerted effort to silence them. But when I asked for specific evidence of this, most simply pointed out that only anti-Obama blogs were targeted — a fact that is certainly suspicious but not especially conclusive.

“I suspect that it was Obama supporters because I think the block was timed to affect blogs prior to the unity event so that we would not ‘rain on the unity parade,’ GeekLove said. “Also, Obama has ads out hiring people with no experience, except the ability to use computers. I presume these are the individuals responsible for silencing any opposition. His campaign has really harnessed the power of the internet and in the process learned to game the system in a way that I find frightening.”

Several of the bloggers hit by the Blogspot outage also write at his site, No Quarter, and so Johnson has been watching the controversy with interest. Like the others, he believes wholeheartedly that Obama supporters are behind the “attack,” and he told me in a phone interview that his website had experienced similar problems a few months ago.

“We were contacted by our host in March and they claimed we were draining too many resources,” he said. “They shut us down completely. But when we went in to look at our site statistics it was evident that something else was clearly going on — we were the subject of some kind of spam attack that was putting a strain on the site.”

An email I sent to Google requesting comment was not immediately returned. Nearly all the bloggers who were targeted by this spam crusade are not waiting around for their accounts to be restored. They’ve flocked to WordPress and opened free accounts there (including Blue Lyon and Come A Long Way), and they don’t have any immediate plans to return to their original URLs once the dust settles.

Made of Honor Review: Minor Spoilers

June 27, 08

Made of Honor Poster

One word description of Made of Honor: : Clichéd.

If you’ve watched My Best Friend’s Wedding, Runaway Bride or any other romantic comedy involving the love of the protagonist’s life about to marry someone else, you can guess the overall plot, minor plot points and ending to this film.

So minor spoilers are included below.

When the hero realizes he loves the girl, you already know she will announce her upcoming sudden marriage just then.

When the hero tries to prove his superiority against the rival, you already know who will come out looking better.

When the rival seems all to perfect, you already know that even more perfection will pop up.

When the hero finally repents of his lifetime of womanizing and turns over a new leaf, you already know that some girl is going to hit on him… And you already know that the girl he loves will stumble upon this compromising position.

And at the last minute, when the hero has given up and the marriage is underway and the priest reaches the “If anyone objects to this marriage” bit… Yup, that’s right.

Only two things I didn’t predict quite right – how the dogs fit in, and how the geek at the basketball games fit in.

Other than that, the show is a pretty decent watch – but kinda short on laughs.

The gals will of course love the show’s romantic plot full of romantic and manly Scotsmen with romantic accents doing romantic things in the romantically beautiful countryside.

The guys on the other hand may have catatonic flashbacks to the repeated sinkings of the Titanic. (We’ll get you for this one day, James Cameron!!!!)

But hey, if you want your girl to come with you to watch Hulk or Hellboy II… Quid pro quo.

RM 18 Million A Year For Putrajaya Landscaping Maintenance

June 26, 08

Okay, personally I am all for weaning the rakyat of subsidies of any type, but…

BLARDY!!!!

Complain about not enough funds so must cut subsidy, but still got so much ‘excess’ to waste on an administrative capital no one visits?!!

From Malaysia Today:

Putrajaya Landscaping Maintenance Costing RM1.5 Million A Month

KUALA LUMPUR, June 25 (Bernama) – The government spends RM1.5 million a month or RM18 million a year in maintenance cost on Putrajaya landscaping, the Dewan Rakyat was told Wednesday.

Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Zulhasnan Rafique said the maintenance work was carried out by 29 contractors who were registered with the Contractors Service Centre (CCS) for Parks Lanscaping Project according to zones.

The landscaping zones were divided into gardens, protocol roads, Persiaran Perdana, Putrajaya fringes and neighbourhood precincts, he said in a written reply to Liew Chin Tong (DAP-Bukit Bendera).

- Bernama

RM 18 million divided by the rise in petrol price of 78 sen per litre = 23,076,923.077 litres of petrol that could have been subsidized.
