My radar had a busy, busy day yesterday … news items were flying onto the screen at a pace I couldn’t even keep up with. You’ll hear about them all, eventually, but for this morning, here are two that stuck in my craw.
One Million Moms
… sounds like a group of mothers concerned about their children’s future, a group willing to stand up and fight against such things as racism, homophobia, and misogyny. A group who wants their children to have the best chance possible at a future, who will fight for their child’s right to a widely-varied education that opens their minds and prepares them for the future, right? WRONG!!! One Million Moms is a hate group that supports bigotry in all its forms, who would happily eradicate the LGBTQ community, and who would turn back the hands of time hundreds of years, given the chance.
One Million Moms was created by the American Family Association (AFA), a right-wing ‘Christian’ organization that is opposed to women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and basically anything that doesn’t fit into their neat, compact view of how the world ought to be. AFA has been listed by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as an anti-LGBTQ hate group, and One Million Moms fits snugly into that category.
Recently, Kay Jewelers put out an ad titled, “Celebrate Every Kiss” that shows couples kissing, one of which happens to be two dads with their young son. Well, Monica Cole, the ‘leader’ of One Million Moms, went ballistic, writing in an email that …
This ad is inappropriate on so many levels and is clearly attempting to desensitize viewers. Kay Jewelers should avoid aiming to please a small percentage of customers while pushing away conservative customers.
Promoting same-sex relationships has nothing to do with marketing jewelry. Yet Kay Jewelers wants to make it clear where they stand on this controversial topic, instead of remaining neutral in the culture war.
One Million Moms continues to stand up for biblical truth. Romans 1:26-27 is very clear about this type of sexual perversion.
There is concern about the way this advertisement is pushing the LGBTQ agenda, but an even greater concern is that the commercial is airing during prime time when children are likely to be watching television.
Hmmmm … seems to me that it would be comforting for the young child of an LGBTQ couple to see that his family is not an anomaly and comforting to that young person who is in the ‘Q’ stage of his own development to see that he/she is not alone, that homosexuality is NOT perversion, but is natural.
Ms. Cole is a bigot. Full stop. She and her ilk are a large part of the reason there is so much hatred, so much violence, so much division among people in the world today. Oh, and by the way, AFA is also against the cable network Animal Planet, because they say the network “features evidence of homosexuality”. These people really, really need to get a life, to join the 21st century!
Ol’ Madison Cawthorn … ‘Lock Him UP!’
Madison Cawthorn has been a thorn in the side of this nation ever since he began grabbing headlines a few years ago. He was a contributor to the events of January 6th, he has no relevant education or experience that would qualify him to be a member of Congress, but yet the good people of North Carolina took pity on him, seeing him sitting in his wheelchair, and they gave him a chance in the 2020 election, to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives.
However, he has not served We the People, but only his own vested interests. His only government employment prior to 2021 was working as a staff assistant to the ignoble Mark Meadows, another plotter and instigator of the fatal January 6th events. He began college, but dropped out with a “D” average, and he was rejected by the Naval Academy, but lied about it. So … what did you folk down in North Carolina expect to get for your efforts?
Madison has been the source of a number of controversies, but two are in the news this week and prove how utterly inappropriate it is for him to be a member of the U.S. Congress!
- For the second time, Cawthorn tried to sneak a loaded handgun onto a commercial airline flight. Now, if that had been you or me, our patooties would be sitting in the Charlotte jail right now, but rather than arrest such an “important” person, he was merely issued a citation and it’s still unclear whether the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will pursue the fine, which would be $13,900 for any of the rest of us.
- Senator Thom Tillis, also a Republican from North Carolina, is calling for an investigation into what may well turn out to be insider trading … a violation of a member of Congress’ oath of office. Cawthorn is under fire after posing with hedge fund manager James Koutoulas, who was the “ringleader” of the “Let’s Go Brandon” cryptocurrency on Dec. 29. The next day, NASCAR driver Brandon Brown announced his partnership with the LGBCoin, which caused the value to spike. It is a serious accusation that could result in Cawthorn’s expulsion from office.
In recent months, Cawthorn has been under scrutiny for a number of issues, such as speeding and driving with a revoked license multiple times, claiming that people in Congress invited him to orgies and calling President Zelenskyy of Ukraine a “thug.” I don’t know about you folks, but he is NOT the sort of person I want making the decisions that will affect all of our lives!!!
