Reporter Will Carless of USA Today wrote an article blaming conservative rhetoric for the shooting at the LGBTQIA Club Q in Colorado Springs, a blatant example of mainstream media bias.
The FACTS of the shooting run contrary to the biased reporting of Mr. Carless. Yet, The Daily Oklahoman placed the Carless’ careless fact-checked article on the front page of last Sunday’s newspaper.
Club Q was hosting a “drag show,” where men dress up as women and sing and dance when the shooting occurred.
The shooter who came to Club Q during the drag show is a self-declared “non-binary” person. That means he self-identifies as neither male nor female but both male AND female.
I know of no conservative Christian or Constitutionalist who holds to non-binary status. The shooter aimed at his people.
The shooter’s attorneys in court filings have demanded the shooter be called “they” and “them.”
It seems this deranged LGBTQIA shooter has a father in the porn business and an absent mother. He entered Club Q, a club he attended, and tragically shot his people.
The shooter’s self-declared non-binary status runs contrary to the mainstream media’s desired narrative. Some, possibly even Mr. Careless, are now saying, “The shooter is only SELF-DECLARING non-binary status to escape hate crime charges.”
Newsflash: All attempts to change Nature’s fixed decree of male/female identity are self-declarations. Those of us who hold to the plumbline of truth – a Creator and Natural Law that the Creator – will tell you that any male who declares himself female or non-binary is mentally, emotionally, or spiritually challenged and is lying about his identity.
In Nature, two cows don’t copulate to create a calf.
Truth is fixed.
We Pay for NEWS-papers, Not Propaganda
So, Mr. Careless, USA Today, and The Oklahoman, if you wish to promote an agenda that gender is a matter of self-declaration, you can’t “pick and choose” which self-declaration you choose to believe.
In this day of media bias and agenda, every single American should question what we read in mainstream newspapers. The U.S. Constitution gives every law-abiding U.S. citizen the right to bear arms. However, in their attempt to change the Constitution and remove the 2nd Amendment, the media must lie and say conservatives must be blamed for the Club Q shooting.
Such blatant bias is unwelcome. We pay for NEWS-papers, not propaganda papers.
Mark Twain once said, “If you don’t read the newspaper, you are uninformed. If you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed.”
Did you get the picture of our lake with the old and new church in the background?
BEAUTIFUL pic! I did get it – AND Rachelle and I are praying for you and Judy.
I also believe that the shooter was ‘deranged’ and that his actions may have been an expression of self-hatred and great internal pain from being wounded by his (lack of) up-bringing.
I do believe that words have consequences as in the old Judaic teachings of ‘the evil speech’ wherein once something is ‘said’, we can then not control the response and that yes, harm may be done as a consequence of our own words. The teaching is called the ‘la shon hara’ (the Evil Speech).
What happened at that club is tragic and we cannot KNOW the heart and mind of the shooter, we just see evidence of his own woundedness in his destructive actions.
The community affected was victimized by one of its ‘own’, yes. In that regard, I also agree with Wade.
Is there an answer to any kind of ‘hate speech’? The up-tick in violent incidents corresponds with the coming of ‘hate rallies’ that began around 2016 and have continued. Free speech does need to be ‘responsible speech’. There is a kind of ‘manipulation’ we can see anytime the speaker suggests taking action against a particular ‘enemy’ by saying words to the effect of ‘Let’s you and him go fight’. The result? We have heard it and we have seen it. And then along comes those who ‘deny’ the severity of what results from hate-speech. The ‘Alex Jones’ of the world. They incorporate another kind of ‘hate speech’ in denying truth and declaring ‘conspiracy theories’ that have harmed innocent people terribly.
An old saying is that the evil speech is like shooting an arrow in Jerusalem and killing someone in Rome . . . once said, the words ‘go forth’ and accomplish missions . . . . and we cannot take our words back again, nor control the damage they might do.
The issue of ‘responsibility’ lies on our own consciences in the end. May God have mercy on us all and give us the grace to know our path going forward as ‘the Good Way’ as we sojourn through this life.
Judy and I have COVID. It’s no fun.
Rex and Judy,
Rachelle and I just finished praying for you! Like Christiane said, you are in our prayers!
you both will have my prayers for the Good Lord to bring you through this and back to health. Let us know how you are doing.
May God have mercy on all who suffer from flu and covid this winter.
Thanks for the prayers! The worst is over, we’re back on our feet again. Judy never felt as sick as me; I guess she’s ‘tougher’.
Her youngest son, Jim Abbott and his wife Lorie from New York are coming for Christmas.
The link above tells about her son producing the Broadway Show “Wicked”.
What!!! WICKED is our favorite! We watched it at the WEST END in London. It is amazing! Please let Jim Abbott and Lorie know that one of our goals is to watch WICKED on Broadway. What an honor to know Jim is Judy’s son. We are both glad you are feeling better! Merry Christmas!
I’m glad you and Rachelle enjoyed Wicked. Small world, huh?
At one time school kids had a mile ice-skating race on the Chenia River in Fairbanks, Alaska. In the girls-race the most-likely to win was a senor who had won the year before. As she got close to the end, the crowd was yelling their heads off. The senior thought they were yelling for her. She decided to ‘coast’ the last 20 yards. But as she was coasting, an eighth-grade girl pasted her and won.
Her name was Bev and years later, she married my brother, Hez, who left this earth two years ago. This week, Bev died. Hez had written a book, and on page one is a poem to Bev:
If I should leave too soon this sunlit place,
I’ll watch for you from the hills of Grace,
And when you too, shall leave to earth your charms,
I’ll greet you here…in Heaven’s arms!
hymn to the God Who heals us all and cares for us on the journey
Cool story about BEV! 🙂
And Hez’s poem is AMAZING!.
Bev finished the race of life and has received the “Well done” from the LORD!
Where did Hez and Bev live?
Just saw Tucker Carlson supporting Putin and denigrating the Urkrainians. I am appalled by this.
I did not know Fox News was intent on supporting Putin’s aggression on a free country.
Putin has stolen so much from the Russian people. So much.
The Ukrainian people refuse to be his victims.
I was surprised by the comments from Carlson. I had no idea things on the extreme far right were so much in favor of Putin and his actions.
Hez and Bev lived in Alaska. She is the only girl he ever kissed. I kissed a girl when I was 18, and Hez asked me what it felt like. I didn’t like the way he asked and told him it was like kissing a dead fish. When Hez kissed Bev, he kissed her on top of her head. She asked what was that? He said that was a kiss. She said I’ll show what a kiss is, and his mind was going round and round; “My brother lied to me.”
