Is Automattic Succumbing to Multicultural Pressure?

© May 16, 2019

 

Thanks to a Counter Jihad Coalition email update I have discovered WordPress.com (i.e. the one operated by Automattic) has deplatformed a couple of expose Islam blogs. The CJC update links to a Jihad Watch post writing about the deplatforming. The exposé blogs were Creeping Sharia and Muslim Statistics.

The Jihad Watch writer assumes the deplatforming was the result of the government of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan complaining. At the very least pointing to Pakistan is a good guess. On my NCCR blog I have received the same Automattic notification.

 

My experience though was informing me my particular blog would no longer be available in Pakistan due to the legal system’s Blasphemy Law. BUT the Automattic notification also included info for how Pakistani readers could circumvent the Pakistan banning by finding a good VPN service that hides Internet surfing. Here is that NCCR post with the notification and advice.

 

So I am a bit surprised Automattic deplatformed Creeping Sharia and Muslim Statistics over Pakistan’s Free Speech robbing Blasphemy Laws. On the other hand, what in the world could those two expose Islam blogs have done to annoy the powers that be at Automattic?

WordPress.com deplatforms those critical of Islam

WordPress.com has deplatormed those critical of Islam. I am very disappointed having been a contributor to the WordPress code in the distant past, and I have assisted in responsible disclosure of security vulnerabilities to them on a voluntary basis in the recent past. I did see it coming though.

 

While it would not be possible to restrict use of the WordPress source code which is publicly available and built by volunteers, and distributed at wordpress.org, its [sic] is “open source”.  wordpress.com is very different.  It is a commercial enterprise which has some free options, the codebase being very similar, but proprietary; and includes the hosting aspect as part of the package.

 

Creeping Sharia Suspension Screen Capture

 

I am aware of 2 sites so far that have been taken down, with no warning Creeping Sharia and Muslim Statistics They were first brought to my attention in a tweet:

 

 

Looking at this tweet, it appears that this deplatforming action was due to a complaint from Pakistan regarding breaking Sharia law.

 

 

This is despite their terms of service in section 4 stating:

 

We do not have any control over those websites and are not responsible for their contents or their use.

 

You can always reach out to Automattic to express your disappointment politely on twitter at @automattic at their arbitrary deplatforming of anyone without providing clear reasoning, especially from a platform built mostly by volunteers.

 

I would suggest anyone using wordpress.com (not .org) or for that matter blogger, dump them immediately, and migrate to a non-managed host using the open source version at wordpress.com, I say non-managed host, as managed hosting services seem to be far more likely to be pressured by hate groups such as SPLC into removing services. Non-managed hosting services would include AWS, Linode and my favorite at the moment DigitalOcean (includes referral link).

 

You will also need to use your own domain name, as there is no mysite.wordpress.org as there is with the .com. there are many domain registrars to choose from, you can find a list here at a very useful site for wordpress users.

 

It’s fairly easy to manage your own WordPress blog, these sites all have extensive help documents, and surprisingly un-managed hosting services seem to have far less technical troubles than managed ones do. The WordPress open source community is vibrant.  It might be helpful not to interact using politically sensitive profile names. I mention this as someone I sent there to get help came back telling me they were unhelpful and ignored him. When I checked, I was not surprised.

 

You can import content from your wordpress.com and blogger.com sites into open source wordpress. While I can’t  get too involved in helping you out, if you have any issues, comment here, and I’ll point you in the right direction.

 

Golden rule when managing your own sites and blogs: keep it simple (20 plugins is not OK and use their default themes unless you have programming skills),  keep regular backups, and put them somewhere safe.

To “Clark” (whoever that individual is) and Automattic’s credit, a link is provided that shows Pakistani residence how to work around Pakistani government censorship. Here is the content of that link:

Bypassing Internet Restrictions

 

Access to the Internet is subject to restrictions in many countries. These range from the ‘Great Firewall of China’, to default content filtering systems in place in the UK. As a result, WordPress.com blogs can sometimes be inaccessible in these places. As far as we are concerned, that’s BS.

 

There are a number of ways available to bypass these restrictions. As part of our commitment to freedom of speech, we have listed some of the possibilities below. Bear in mind that the most effective route will depend on where you are connecting from.

 

While these methods are generally legal, you should always exercise caution when deciding to make use of them, and research the situation in the country you are connecting from first.

 

VPNs (Virtual Private Network)

 

VPN services allow you to connect to the Internet through their networks, rather than accessing websites directly. These connections are often encrypted, bypass restrictions that may be in place, and are often used for secure browsing.

 

Advantages

 

  • Depending on the VPN, users can enjoy anonymity in their web browsing.

 

  • Users from countries that routinely block traffic to and from certain sites within their borders (e.g., China, Russia, Iran) can bypass those restrictions by using a VPN.

 

  • Users concerned about government surveillance and third-party data capture and retention can use a VPN to mask their web activity. The most privacy-conscious VPNs don’t even keep data logs and thus have no user information or traffic to surrender to third-parties.

 

Disadvantages

 

  • VPNs add another layer of complexity to Internet access. Users will need to select from a number of different providers to find the right VPN that meets their needs; download additional software to their computers or mobile devices; and configure the software.

 

  • Not all VPNs provide complete anonymity. Some may log traffic or user data. If it’s a paid VPN service, credit card and other payment information may be linked to individual user accounts, compromising user security and privacy.

 

  • Performance and connectivity can be much slower than standard network connections. In some cases, users may find themselves having to log in multiple times during a session.

 

VPN Examples

 

Some examples of popular VPN services are below. You should make sure to explore the best service for your own situation before making any decisions on what to use.

 

 

 

 

Setting up VPNs

 

Each VPN provider will have different ways to connect to their service. Some example instructions of how to set up VPN connections are below.

 

 

 

VPN services typically also include downloadable apps for your mobile devices such as these:

 

 

 

 

Tor

 

Tor is free software that routes an Internet connection through different locations around the web. This masks where you are connecting from, and bypasses the restrictions put in place by governments and Internet Service Providers. There are versions available for many different platforms, including Windows, Mac, iPhone, and Android.

 

While similar to VPN software in many ways, Tor is distinct in that it relies on individual computers acting as nodes to route the connection through – rather than solely large commercial servers. As a result, connecting through Tor can be significantly slower than the speeds you may be used to.

 

More information can be found on the Tor website.

LOOK OUT! I Committed Blasphemy in Pakistan


John R. Houk

© March 15, 2019

I have mentioned that I operate three blogs:

 

  1. SlantRight 2.0

 

  1. NeoConservative Christian Right (NCCR)

 

  1. Ubiquitous8Thoughts

 

The first is a Blogger platform. The second is a WordPress platform. And the third is an OverBlog platform (located in France under EU rules).

 

A couple of days ago I received an email from WordPress Support notifying me the government of Pakistan had contacted WordPress over one of my posts. The Support Team informed me they weren’t going to censor my blog but if I did not remove the alleged content the NCCR blog would be banned from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

 

Here is the content of the WordPress Support email:

It looks like I will not be travelling to Pakistan anytime soon. Pakistan actually shows the legal code my “Blasphemous” content breaks.

 

So, quoting the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority:

 

Pakistan Penal Code section 295- B and is in clear violation of Section 37 of Prevention of Electronic Crime Act (PECA) 2016 and Section 19 of Constitution of Pakistan

 

I found three PDFs from Googling portions of the law I am breaking:

 

 

 

 

Of particular interest to me was from “PAKISTAN Use and abuse of the blasphemy laws,” the penalty for breaking the Blasphemy law under the heading, “2.2 Sections of the PPC amended or added during Zia-ul Haq’s Islamization drive” which is on page 7 of the PDF referencing section 295-B:

 

Several sections were inserted in the PPC in the 1980s. Section 295-B was added in 1982; it made defiling the Koran a criminal offence. It reads: “Whoever willfully [sic] defiles, damages or desecrates a copy of the Holy Koran or of an extract therefrom or uses it in any derogatory manner or for any unlawful purpose shall be punishable with imprisonment for life.” [Bold text by Blog Editor]

 

In 1980, section 298-A was inserted in the PPC, by which the use of derogatory remarks “by words, … or by imputation innuendo or insinuation, directly or indirectly” in respect of persons revered in Islam, was made a criminal offence punishable with up to three years’ imprisonment. In 1986, defiling the name of the Prophet Mohammad was made a criminal offence and the relevant section, 295-C added to the PPC (see below in detail).

 

Most alarming after examining further penalties heaped on is on page 8 of the PDF under the subheading, “2.3. The blasphemy law: Section 295-C PPC”:

 

In 1986 the penal code was amended by Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1986, which added the blasphemy law under section 295-C to the Pakistan Penal Code. It provided the death penalty or life imprisonment for the criminal offence of defiling the name of the Prophet Mohammad. It reads:

 

“295-C: Use of derogatory remarks, etc. in respect of the Holy Prophet: Whoever by words, either spoken or written, or by visible representations, or by any imputation, innuendo, or insinuation, directly or indirectly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him), shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life, and shall also be liable to fine.” [Bold text by the Blog Editor]

The Court directed the government of Pakistan to effect the necessary legal changes and added, “in case this is not done by 30 April 1991 the words ‘or punishment for life’ in section 295-C, PPC, shall cease to have effect on that date”. Decisions by the Federal Shariat Court are binding on the government under Article 203-D(3) of the Constitution. The Government has the possibility to appeal against such decisions to the Shariat Appellate Bench of the Supreme Court before any directive of the Federal Shariat Court takes effect. The government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif did not file an appeal against the decision making the death penalty the only punishment available for blasphemy. In July 1991, it announced that it had decided to amend section 295-C as directed by the court. A bill to that effect was placed before parliament in 1992. While the Senate, the upper house of parliament, unanimously adopted the bill in July 1992, the lower house of parliament discussed it at length but did not pass it. Opposition parties considered it to be too vague and …

 

Now that’s some Free Speech limitations for essentially speaking the truth and then receiving the death penalty. Pakistan’s law establishing all things Islam as supreme is not surprising since 97% of the population is Islam and of those 97%, a staggering amount are Sunni-Islam Muslims.

 

Considering the huge number of Muslims that undoubtedly accept Islamic principles in Pakistan’s rule of law, laws relating to Blasphemy are unsurprising. Just as Christian principles should be an influence in the rule of law in Western nations.

 

As far as I am concerned, Pakistan’s rule of law is a glaring example of why Islamic principles CANNOT BE ACCEPTED in the West as the rule of law, ESPECIALLY IN AMERICA WHICH HAS A BILL OF RIGHTS AS PART OF THE CONSTITUTION WHICH AFFIRMS CHRISTIAN CONCEPTS OF NATURAL LAW!

 

I responded to the WordPress Support thinking I would get some kind of reply affirming, rejecting or a mixed reaction my Free Speech stand:

 

Pakistan is in a sad state of Sharia censoring the citizens from Free Speech truth. I pray the WordPress powers that be and the blog platform’s legal team are more protective of Free Speech than Pakistan. On the other hand Pakistan is a sovereign nation and I suspect the Pakistan government is protecting its Muslim citizens (as you probably know Pakistan is overwhelmingly a Sunni-Islam majority nation) from getting upset. In Sharia, placing the prophet Muhammad in a bad light – even when factual – is a capital crime. A Pakistani Christian (**Asia Bibi) survived for nearly 9 years on death row accused of insulting Muhammad by implying Jesus was a greater person. After nine years and the failure of evidence from Bibi’s accuser, Bibi was released from prison nearly causing riots by the devout Muslim Pakistanis.

 

It’s sad but I can live with accommodating Pakistan’s request as pertaining to Pakistan. However, outside of Pakistan, I pray you honor Free Speech and not censor posts that are outside of Pakistan’s authority.

 

Thank you for your consideration and your work, [Blog Editor: The links related to Asia Bibi were not in the original email sent to WordPress Support. The double asterisks (“**”) near Asia’s name is to a recent link about Asia stuck in a secretive location in ill health and being refused medical attention. I want to bring attention to the plight of Asia Bibi and thus will posting her still horrendous treatment directly after my thoughts on Free Speech.]

 

No response or further action of notifications so far from WordPress.

 

I can live with my blogs being banned in a 97% Muslim nation. And I believe I will not be visiting Pakistan anytime soon … or ever.

‘Everyone is Worried’: Asia Bibi ‘Very Unwell’ in Pakistani Safe House, Being Denied Medical Care

 

Asia Bibi

 

By Will Maule, Faithwire

03-11-2019

CBN News

 

Asia Bibi, the mother of five who spent almost a decade on death row for a crime she did not commit, is reported to be in dire physical condition as she continues to be held in a safe house in the Pakistani city of Karachi. Bibi, 53, was acquitted of blasphemy last October after the Supreme Court ruled that the accusations had no evidential basis. Since then, Bibi has been granted asylum in Canada, but as yet has not been released from her home country.

 

What Is The Latest?

 

According to a source quoted in The Daily Mail, Bibi is “very unwell” and being denied medical care while holed up in a safe house with “low blood pressure.”

 

“Everyone is very worried,” the source explained. “She won her appeal and was supposed to be out of Pakistan by now.”

 

Despite the fact that Bibi’s children are now safely in Canada, the Pakistani government has wanted to seek assurances from the embattled mother that she will not speak ill of her home country upon leaving. There is still no indication of when exactly Bibi will finally evade the clutches of the country that has caused her so much strife.

 

“Even though the government says she can leave, the army has all the power in this case,” the source added. “They are in control of her. They are fearful about getting a negative press if she speaks out about her experiences – but they will get an even worse press if she dies in protective custody.”

 

British officials recently stated that the Pakistani government has “confirmed that Asia Bibi is free to make her own decisions and to leave Pakistan,” but the realities of this case speak of a very different story indeed.

 

Many are calling on prominent church leaders, such as Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, to do more on Bibi’s behalf.

 

 

For now, Asia and her husband, Ashiq Masih, remain in Pakistan with little idea as to when they will be allowed to leave.

 

What Is The Background?

 

Bibi was initially arrested back in 2009 after supposedly entering into an argument with a group of women about a source of drinking water. The Islamist women accused Bibi of drinking from the same tap as them, to which Bibi allegedly responded, “Jesus Christ died for my sins. What did the prophet Muhammad do for you?” a remark which they believed offended their revered religious figure.

 

However, in the Supreme Court’s final judgment, it declared that the two sisters who accused Bibi “had no regard for the truth,” before adding that “the said semi-literate young sisters had a reason to level allegations against the appellant which could be untrue.”

 

The landmark judgment also noted that the prosecution’s presented evidence in the case “was nothing short of concoction incarnate.”

 

“Her conviction is set aside and she is to be relieved forthwith if not required in other charges,” said Chief Justice Saqib Nisar in the astonishingly bold ruling, as reported by The Guardian.

 

But the court’s statement went even further, implying that Bibi had been subject to clear-cut prejudice in her arrest and trial.

 

“It is ironical that in the Arabic language the appellant’s name Asia means ‘sinful,’” read the judgment written by Justice Asif Khosa, “but in the circumstances of the present case she appears to be a person, in the words of Shakespeare’s King Lear, ‘more sinned against than sinning.’”

 

The radicals, however, have remained bloodthirsty from the very day Bibi was arrested.

 

Prior to her acquittal, in Pakistan’s second-largest city of Lahore, hundreds of protesters gathered together and chanted “Hang infidel Asia.” Sickeningly, the hashtag #HangAsiaDefend295C was trending among the religious extremists on Twitter, with the “295C” referring to section 295-C of Pakistan’s penal code, which makes it a criminal offense to blaspheme against the Prophet Muhammad.

 

What Does The Blasphemy Law Actually Say?

 

According to the Penal Code itself, 295-B refers to the prohibiting of “Defiling, etc., of Holy Qur’an,” and 295-C is in reference to the “use of derogatory remarks, etc., in respect of the Holy Prophet.” Other violations not specific to Islam contained in Pakistan’s criminal laws include “trespassing on burial places” and “disturbing religious assembly.”

 

Those who have chosen to support Bibi’s cause have faced grave consequences. In addition to the threat against Bibi, her family and the justices involved in her acquittal, other prominent politicians have lost their lives in the pursuit of religious freedom.

 

In 2011, shortly after Bibi’s conviction, Punjab Governor Salman Taseer was brutally murdered for speaking out in support of the wrongly convicted Christian woman. Shot dead on the streets of Islamabad, his own bodyguard was found guilty of the heinous crime and, though sentenced to death himself, he has since become a cult hero with a large shrine in his honor erected on the outskirts of the capital city.

 

Just two months later, Christian politician and outspoken critic of the blasphemy laws, Shahbaz Bhatti, was also assassinated — shot dead by the Pakistani Taliban as he traveled to work.

 

Do continue to pray for Asia Bibi as she does everything in her power to flee Pakistan.

My Blog Platforms, a WordPress Thanks & Adam Flanders


John R. Houk

© September 3, 2018

I operate blogs on three different platforms: Blogger, WordPress and Overblog. In full disclosure, I’ve always considered my Blogger account (SlantRight 2.0) to be my flagship blog.

 

The WordPress blog is the NeoConservative Christian  Right or simply NCCR. Yup, I have some Neoconservative leanings in that I am very supportive in an aggressive Foreign Policy that places American National Interests in preeminence and a very powerful military to backup U.S. National Interests. There was a time I was very supportive of nation-building (similar to post WWII Germany & Japan), believing instilling Western Representative Government would align a former despotic nation with American Interests. BUT since we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq and it became apparent the inherent Muslim populace were more devoted to despotic Islamic Sharia and principles than the concept of Liberty and Freedom, it is now my opinion nations dominated by Islam are incapable of Western values of Free Choice, individual Liberty and inalienable Rights. Ergo, nation-building in nations dominated by Islam or nations that have experienced a Judeo-Christian heritage cannot ever be trained to accept Western Values.

 

And the blog platform that garners the least attention yet still is amazingly growing is my Overblog location – Ubiquitous8Thoughts. Overblog’s base of operation caters to the EU particularly France and the UK. It fascinates me that Overblog has not enforced the anti-Free Speech laws on my blog which is quite American in expressing Conservative, Biblical and Counterjihad thoughts. If anti-Free Speech censoring ever begins at Ubiquitous8Thoughts, that will be the time my blogging on Overblog will cease.

 

Now I come to the purpose of this post.

 

I had cross posted with comment the Mass Resistance exposé on Adam Flanders man/boy sex issue relating to convictions for having homosexual sex with a minor boy in Maine circa 2012. In those posts Mr. Flanders complained to WordPress that I posted his mug shot from being arrested. Flanders issued a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) infringement notice against me via WordPress. The Flanders objective was to get the mug shots removed from my blog.

 

At this point I considered removing the mug shots on my own volition hoping perhaps Flanders had seen the ungodly errors of his way. So I did a simple Google search to see if I could discover what Flanders was up to the six years.

 

At least the simple look did not show Flanders had any homosexual pedophilia legal issues with the law. However I did discover Flanders has a homosexual activist slant. Here’s how I made that conclusion from a 2017 blog post from Adam Flanders:

 

Hey! Sunny [Blog Editor:  Adam Edward harland Flanders apparently now goes by Adam Sunny Flanders] here. Check out my site and feel free to contact me. You’ll find links to my resumé, research, digital artwork, and much more. If you’d like me to create something for you, such as a website, CG animation, an LED-lit sign, etc. just ask and we can work something out – my rates are very reasonable. Please visit my company website, Seashore Design for more information and to view my work.

 

I’m very much a Romantic at heart: “marked by the imaginative or emotional appeal of what is heroic, adventurous, remote, mysterious, or idealized; marked by expressions of love or affection.”

 

Look to the Western Sky        Monday, June 26, 2017

 

I’ve been living in California for a month now and I’ve been enjoying it very much. The first few weeks were very busy getting a California driver’s license and registering my car (which is from here), finding a good gym membership, and taking care of all those other little details. I’ve been volunteering with the San Diego Zoo and I just started a cool new job in horticulture.

 

My timing was good – Orange County Pride kicked off last week and they had a fully loaded schedule culminating in the all-night Laguna Beach Party. I’ve made lots of new friends and I’m looking forward to meeting more!

 

To be honest, I miss my family and the poms a lot, as well as my friends in Maine and Louisiana. Home is always where the heart is (so maybe I can get them to move out here, hehe). It was a difficult decision to leave, but a big part of me feels like I belong here. I often felt like a square peg in a round hole when I lived in Maine. SoCal values align much better with my own – health conscious people, environmental protection, and science and tech everywhere, not to mention it’s so much easier to be a vegetarian here. And no snow! Each region of SoCal has its own subculture, but I’m quickly adapting to life in the OC. (AdamFlanders.com)

 

Obviously Mr. Flanders is quite devoted to homosexual activism and lifestyle. Logic can suppose Mr. Flanders still has an eye for minor boys which would be much easier to explore in California than in Maine. BUT that is just a presumptive guess and not a fact of knowledge.

 

Here are the links on NCCR that has 2012 posts on Adam Flanders some of which has his mug shot:

 

 

 

 

And here are the corresponding Mass Resistance links that were either cross posted or a corresponded email alert was cross posted:

 

 

 

 

In case you’re interested, the Flanders mug shot photo is still up at Mass Resistance.

 

Nope, I’m not removing the Flanders mug shot from NCCR; however neither am I going to repost it here to further aggravate Mr. Flanders.

 

Flanders did his best to get his Maine convictions thrown out, even going through Federal Court system. You can read the details of the Federal Court actions including Flanders’ lame excuses of self-defense HERE (Adam E. Flanders v. State of Maine [in Federal Court – 22 page PDF]).

 

And here is the “Conclusion” judgement by the Federal Judge:

 

I conclude, as indicated above with respect to each of the claims, that Flanders suffered no violation of his constitutional right to counsel or his right to enter a knowing and voluntary plea. I therefore conclude that the post-conviction court’s decision in conjunction with Flanders’s state postconviction petitions was neither contrary to nor an unreasonable application of federal law. See 28 U.S.C. §2254(d)(1). On that basis, I recommend that this Court deny Flanders relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2254, with prejudice, and dismiss his federal petitions. I further recommend that certificates of appealability should not issue in the event Flanders files notices of appeal because there is no substantial showing of the denial of a constitutional right within the meaning of 28 U.S.C. § 2253(c). (Bold text by Blog Editor)

 

A resumé is a decent snapshot of history. With that in mind, you can go to AdamFlanders.com to read the Flanders resumé posted there. And here is the Flanders LinkedIn account to glean more info if you choose.

 

Maine Sex Offender Registry and Adam Edward harland Flanders

 

And I need to mention there have been several attempts to hack the NCCR blog to change its password. Is it Flanders? I can’t tell you that, but with the trouble Flanders is trying to cause WordPress over his mug shots it could be a logical leap of assumption.

 

To WordPress’ credit, they have deemed the Adam Flanders DMCA accusations as bogus. Below is the cross post of the WordPress email notifying me of the issue.

How Many More Moral Dominoes Fall?


John R. Houk

© August 24, 2015

Tell me, does anyone recognize any of these moral condemnations found in Leviticus 18 that is considerable acceptable and not heinous in today’s American society?

6 ‘None of you shall approach anyone who is near of kin to him, to uncover his nakedness: I am the Lord.

19 ‘Also you shall not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness as long as she is in her customary impurity. 20 Moreover you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor’s wife, to defile yourself with her. 21 And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord. 22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. 23 Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion. (Leviticus 18: 6, 19-23 NKJV)

Verse six addresses incest. The verses from six to eighteen specifically addresses the various incestuous relationships that God Almighty condemns as breaking His divine moral standards for living for God rather than against God.

Verse nineteen addresses having sex (with your own wife – duh) with a woman while on her period is not approved by God.

Verse twenty addresses having sex with a woman married to someone else; i.e. adultery. Yeah I know, this Scripture doesn’t address a woman sleeping with another woman’s husband. But again – duh – do the math.

Verse twenty-one addresses taking your babies and sacrificing them alive (as in burning them to death in homage to the fake-god or perhaps demon entity, Molech. ALSO in the same verse – as in the same breath – DO NOT profane the NAME of GOD.

Verse twenty-two addresses male homosexuality and again – duh – by doing the math and utilizing other Scriptures in the Word of God (viz. Romans), female homosexuality or lesbianism is also an abomination.

Verse twenty-three says for males or females having sex with animals is perversion.

Acceptance of Incest in American Society

Incest is criminalized in 48 out of 50 States. The fact that two states does not criminalize consensual adult incest of whatever nature is a disturbing example of how something defined as immoral in the eyes of God is slowly normalized in a society that sheds the moral authority of God’s standard. Without rhetoric but simply an examination of State laws and incest, here is an excerpt pertaining to the legal issue in the USA:

The crime of incest is committed when people who are related to one another engage in sexual activity, get married, or live together as man and wife. … In the United States, child sexual abuse is always a crime, and incest between adults is a crime in all but a few states.

How is Incest Defined?

Incest is defined differently in different states. In some states, incest is limited to sexual activity. In other states, people can commit the crime of incest by engaging in sexual activity, marrying, or living together romantically.

Generally, in the U.S., incest laws ban intimate relations between children and parents, brothers and sisters, and grandchildren and grandparents. Some states also ban relations between aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. Laws vary as to half- and step-relatives and adopted relatives. Second and third cousins are generally free to marry and first cousins are free to be together in most states.

Some state’s incest laws are limited to heterosexual sexual relationships. For example, in Georgia, incest is defined as sexual intercourse between fathers and daughters and mothers and sons, including step-children; siblings and half-siblings; grandparents and grandchildren; aunts and nephews; and uncles and nieces. In North Dakota, incest includes not only sexual activity, but also marriage or cohabitation between first cousins, as well as people who are more closely related than first cousins, whether whole or half-relatives.

Is Incest Between Adults a Crime?

Almost all states criminalize incest between adult relatives. Some legal scholars have argued that incest laws as applied to adults should be rethought. Rhode Island repealed its criminal (adult) incest statute in 1989, and New Jersey law imposes no criminal penalties for incest where both parties are adults …

Punishment

Incest between adults is a felony, punishable by five years’ to life imprisonment, depending on state law. Incest against children is punished just as severely, if not more so, as other cases of child sexual abuse, usually by lengthy prison terms or life in prison. … (Incest Laws and Criminal Charges; By Ave Mince-Didier; Criminal Defense Lawyer – published by NOLO)

Adultery in USA

Adultery used to be so morally outrageous that it was a criminal offense. Not so today. The worst consequence for adultery today are the monetary damages are translated for the cheater – in courts the loser is usually the husband but not always these days. The largest consequence is if there are minor children involved – children lose no matter who the cheater is.

… As Eleanor Barkhorn reported last week, a survey of 1,535 American adults found that 91 percent considered extramarital infidelity to be morally wrong …

While this same poll showed growing acceptance of divorce, pre-marital sex, and having babies out of wedlock, the 91 percent disapproval rate for cheating is nearly twice what it was 40 years ago, when similar surveys showed that only half of American adults believed that having an affair was always wrong. As political scientist John Sides notes in a recent detailed analysis of changing attitudes towards adultery, “Americans, and especially better educated Americans, have become less accepting of adultery with the passage of time.” Pointing out the simultaneously growing acceptance for ending an unhappy union, Sides summarizes what he sees as our contemporary attitude: “If you’re in an unhappy marriage, don’t cheat. Just get divorced.” (How Marital Infidelity Became America’s Last Sexual Taboo; By HUGO SCHWYZER; The Atlantic; 5/29/13)

The USA Today ran an article in 2014 that implied it was shocking that twenty-one States still had criminal laws associated with adultery. It is this kind of media attitude that directs Americans away from Godly morals and to whatever is morally relative in the norm of Secular Humanism.

The New York Times ran an article in 2012 on adultery based on the high profile case of David Petraeus getting caught in an adulterous honey jar with mistress Paula Broadwell. The article goes on to the shocking fact that adultery is still on the criminal codes of States and U.S. Territories to the tune of twenty-four. Then uses the term American Exceptionalism in a negative connotation rather than positive:

This is yet another example of American exceptionalism: in nearly the entire rest of the industrialized world, adultery is not covered by the criminal code. (Adultery, an Ancient Crime That Remains on Many Books; By ETHAN BRONNER; NYT; 11/14/12)

you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech

Among Judaic theologians there seems to be some disagreement about whether or not the Children of Israel burnt their babies to death or simply ritualized a symbolic gesture of passing babies quickly through fire in dedication to a deity other than God almighty. Most theological scholars of both Judaism and Christianity agree that some kind of sacrificial death was enacted on babies regardless of burning to death or merely murdering the tike in the name of a foreign god. The Judaic view can be read at the Jewish Virtual Library or the Jewish Encyclopedia.

Here is an excerpt that is easy to read and represents a Christian perspective:

Molech was an ancient god worshiped by the people neighboring Israel during Old Testament times. While much about Molech’s nature and origin are uncertain, the Bible mentions Molech on eight occasions, providing some context regarding the problems associated with this ancient god.

The first mention of Molech is in Leviticus 18:21 in which the Lord commanded, “You shall not give any of your children to offer them to Molech, and so profane the name of your God: I am the Lord.” The worship of Molech clearly involved ritual child sacrifice, something God’s people were not to practice. This act was punishable by death according to Leviticus 20:2 which states, “Any one of the people of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall surely be put to death.”

Further, child sacrifice to Molech was considered profanity against God’s holy name. Leviticus 20:3 says, “I myself will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given one of his children to Molech, to make my sanctuary unclean and to profane my holy name.” Not only were those who sacrificed their children to be stoned to death, those who ignored such a sacrifice would be abandoned by God (Leviticus 20:5).

The final mention of Molech in the Old Testament is found in God’s words to Jeremiah. “They set up their abominations in the house that is called by my name, to defile it. They built the high places of Baal in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to offer up their sons and daughters to Molech, though I did not command them, nor did it enter into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin” (Jeremiah 32:34-35).

Molech represents the most repulsive of acts in God’s sight, the ritual sacrifice of children to a pagan god, which was condemned in the strongest way by the Lord, including punishment by death. (Who was the Canaanite god Molech? From CompellingTruth.org; Copyright © 2011 – 2015 Got Questions Ministries, All Rights Reserved. Molech)

My take is baby-killing in the name of another faith or ideology that is contrary to God’s moral standard profanes God Almighty’s very name. It is my humble this addresses the abortion issue of killing unborn human beings in the name of defining a woman’s choice over their body is more important than a living person’s life dependent on a woman’s body for nutrition until a viable birth emerges.

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”

Now we come to the crux of my moral outrage to societal acceptance of ungodly practices. I began this examination of the abandonment of God’s standards for morality by American society by reading a WordPress.com blog entry vocal support for the Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) agenda of brain washing the world to accept the homosexual lifestyle as a loving normal path for humanity. I should point out that God himself calls homosexuality an abomination. Leftist multiculturalists, Secular Humanists and Homosexual Activist have gone to great lengths to discredit either God as irrelevant or that we Biblical Christians are not getting the Biblical Scriptures a correct interpretation. Either way – to use a British term – it’s all bollix.

Here is the WordPress.com post I found very disheartening:

Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, is committed to diversity: providing a platform for everyone to publish on the web and building a diverse, distributed workforce around the world.

A collaborative effort between Accelerate with Google and Automattic, the Accelerate.LGBT conference series is designed to help diverse businesses and nonprofits optimize their web presence, empowering professionals through focused workshops and hands-on, one-on-one support from Automattic and Google employees. We held our first event in San Francisco this past April, which was a great success.

We’re excited to announce the next free Accelerate.LGBT event on September 17, 2015, in Dublin, Ireland. Here’s a sneak peek of the sessions for this afternoon event:

· Get found on Google Search and Maps

· Optimize your website for business

· Engage a younger audience with your brand

· Find the best talent for your organization — inside Google’s hiring secrets

· Unlock your organization’s online potential

If you live in Dublin or plan to be in the area at this time, make sure to join us, follow us, and interact with us (#AccelerateLGBT)!

If you’d like to attend, please register for the September 17 event.

If you’d like Accelerate.LGBT to visit your area, tweet us! We’re also taking a poll to help us decide where to host our next event. [Blog Editor: At this point a poll vote is provided. I am not participating on my blog.]

We’re proud to partner with Google to offer this Accelerate.LGBT series to help businesses and nonprofits get the most out of the tools available on the web. We hope to see you in September! (Next Stop for Accelerate.LGBT: Dublin, Ireland; By Anne McCarthy; en.blog.wordpress.com; 8/21/15 3:00 PM)

At the end of a bunch of Accelerate.LGBT photos there is a subscription reminder to me:

You are following this blog

You are following this blog, along with 21,462,995 other amazing people”.

That means Twenty-one MILLION plus people received a WordPress notification promoting an ungodly event.

I was tempted to not include the links promoting event and the people sponsoring the event but that would be disingenuous of me to use WordPress quote as it was intended to be read.

It is also not surprising that Google is a partner with WordPress in this “Accelerate.LGBT” agenda. If you type the letters LGBT in a Google search you will discover the initial search results are all positive for an LGBT agenda or critical of those who condemn an LGBT agenda.

Trust me. Google and WordPress are a drop in the bucket in media formats promoting acceptance of the ungodly Homosexual Lifestyle. The media is so supportive of homosexuality that I can count some Leftist or homosexual goofball posting a comment castigating my stand with God in some of the most horrific vitriol. That translates to it is okay to condemn a stand with the Word of God but I am a hate-filled homophobe for defending God’s morality.

I’m beginning to understand how early Christians may have felt some ostracism when Roman pagans condemned them as rebellious to the Emperor and Roman government. Or the ostracism from Jews who felt Christianity was a heresy that confronted the Law of Moses and dared to include the son of man in Jesus as co-equal with the ONE God as the Son of God. In the first hand Christians faced a Roman death sentence depending on its proximity and on the other hand faced the rage of devoted Jews who felt the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob had been blasphemed. In both cases those early Christians chose to face those condemnations without retribution knowing the Roman and Jewish perception was not an accurate picture. Frankly I may have a long ways to go to attain that Early Christian devotion since I have experienced a time in my life when a solid majority of Americans – whether devoted or nominal or agnostic – would have not accepted the homosexual lifestyle as a moral choice even if it was a Constitutional choice.

My how the Left Wing propaganda machine has influenced American thought.

I could on and on about how accepting homosexuality as normal will more than likely lead to other justifications for ungodly practices in America. Some to think about are:

o Polygamy

o Man/Boy sexual relationships

o Further normalizing Incest (Oh my God – even legitimizing homosexual incest … ewwww …

There are undoubtedly more consequences that I do not wish to dwell on but here’s consequence that may be on the road to societal acceptance condemned by God as perversion – BESTIALITY.

Leviticus 18:23 – ‘Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion.’

Adultery is something people wag their heads about but the constraints on the practice drive people to anger to even think about making an adulterer pay a legal price for committing such an act.

Incest is not illegal in two American States. How many incest dominoes will fall?

Same-sex marriage was forced on the American culture by a SCOTUS majority unilaterally ignoring the Constitution and instituting the practice as a political right when in fact it is an ungodly act.

Polygamists were excited for the SCOTUS ruling on same-sex marriage because much of the logic applies to the one man and many loving wives scenario.

I haven’t ran into it yet but the underground Man/Boy culture relationship is quietly huge in the Western World including the USA. It is underground only because the Man/Boy crowd doesn’t have enough media advocates shaming activist Courts to accept the perversion. Titles to read on Man/Boy homosexual movement:

o Brief history of the modern childlove movement – Free Republic; Posted on 3/3/2007, 11:23:28 AM

o Gay Rights and NAMBLA – By John R. Houk; SlantRight; 10/1/09 (some links within post are dead)

o Obama associates and the North American Man/Boy Love Association – By Bobbette Madonna; Broadside News; 5/3/14)

o NAMBLA-gate: The Strange Case of Kevin Jennings, Part One By Cliff Kincaid; Accuracy in Media; 1/4/10)

o NAMBLA-gate: The Strange Case of Kevin Jennings, Part Two By Cliff Kincaid; Accuracy in Media; 1/5/10)

If the trend continues I will not be surprised that it will no longer be a crime for a human being to have sex with an animal in my lifetime. After all homosexuality went through decades of promotional propaganda until the SCOTUS majority validated same-sex matrimony.

Bare Naked Islam Shutdown by Word Press


John R. Houk

© December 30, 2011

 

I have been going through my RSS feeds at Google Reader. I don’t know why I still have Little Green Footballs on my RSS. The big football over there has it in for bloggers that wish to expose Islam as a theopolitical religion that its very essence is antithetical to the American way of life that was initiated by our Founding Fathers as well as being an overtly racist religion.

 

The idiocy of the hatred of LGF’s Charles Johnson has called Pamela Geller a racist bigot for her part in exposing Islam. Here is a Johnson quote on Geller I found on Helian Unbound:

 

The fact is that there are plenty of good reasons to make the judgment that Pamela Geller promotes crazy hate speech, racist groups, and conspiracy theories; her main targets are Muslims, but many of these reasons have nothing to do with Islam, radical or otherwise.

 

This Helian Unbound post demonstrates the hypocrisy of Charles Johnson. The post proceeds to quote Johnson racism and incitement:

 

Congratulations, Glenn (Beck). You’ve now succeeded in being even more of a gratuitous race-baiter than Rush Limbaugh.

 

++++++++++

 

Some days it seems as if the right wing blogosphere has become possessed by the Demons of Utter Stupidity.

 

++++++++

 

In his feverish rush to smear LGF by any means possible, wingnut hateblogger Ace of Spades makes an accusation. (Amid a whole bunch of outright lies.)

 

+++++++

 

This is the kind of person who represents the right wing blogosphere: a rank hypocrite, who accuses others of the unethical acts he performs himself.

 

+++++++++

 

World Net Daily’s source for their latest insane Birther article is James Edwards — an open white supremacist who runs the vile “Political Cesspool” radio show in Tennessee: Hawaii elections clerk: Obama not born here.

 

+++++++++

 

I haven’t been paying much attention to raving Birther kook Orly Taitz’s campaign for the GOP nomination for secretary of state, but amazingly, there’s actually a chance she might win today

 

+++++++++++

 

Fox News Hitler pimp Glenn Beck has a new favorite author:

 

+++++++++++

 

Nothing new about any of this, Blair, you freaking brain-dead right wing moron. Try harder next time.

 

++++++++++

 

Today’s disgusting right wing racist is South Carolina Republican Senator Jake Knotts.

 

If Johnson ever was a Conservative has totally abandoned the Right to become a Left Wing writer of hate. As any good Leftist will do, Johnson will delete or edit any incriminating posts or comments to protect his LGF sainthood. This is one reason I sought quotes from somewhere other than LGF itself.

 

I point out this nature of Charles Johnson because it is through a rant of his against Pamela Geller that I discovered Bare Naked Islam (BNI) was shut down by the blog’s host WordPress.com. Johnson praises WordPress.com and castigates Geller for her timely and vociferous post at Atlas Shrugs leveled at WordPress.com for dropping BNI. Evidently WordPress.com believes BNI violated its terms of service; however the closure was a result of Muslim complaints supported by Hamas-Muslim Brotherhood connected Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) against BNI. As of today this is what you are directed to if you attempt to go to the BNI blog:

 

barenakedislam.wordpress.com is no longer available.

 

This blog has been archived or suspended for a violation of our Terms of Service.


For questions or concerns, contact WordPress.com Support.

 

Who knows how long even this slim piece of information is available; nonetheless be a person that clicks the “WordPress.com Support” link above to complain about this attempt to censor Free Speech merely because of the hypocrisy that some Muslims were offended by a BNI portrayal of Islam.

 

Pamela Geller is correctly angry with WordPress.com and CAIR for this kind of censorship. Geller’s defense of BNI demonstrates the hypocrisy involved in this act of shutting BNI because CAIR is a radical Islamic group of which BNI would expose as a group dedicated to bring intolerant Sharia Law as the law of the land in America.

 

Geller urges everyone that has a Word Press blog to shut down voluntarily in protest; however I am probably one of many that will ignore this voluntary action. I use my Word Press blog kind of as a place to disseminate info that leads back to my main blog SlantRight.com. If you do not have much invested in your Word Press blog, by all means take it down. If you have a lot invested in your Word Press blog OR if you have no Word Press blog I urge you to complain to WordPress.com Support!
