A Raven and a Swan

I had no idea that Aesop was trans-species-phobic.  I’m glad I found out!  Here’s the proof:

From Aesop for children:

A Raven, which you know is black as coal, was envious of the Swan, because her feathers were as white as the purest snow. The foolish bird got the idea that if he lived like the Swan, swimming and diving all day long and eating the weeds and plants that grow in the water, his feathers would turn white like the Swan’s.

So he left his home in the woods and fields and flew down to live on the lakes and in the marshes. But though he washed and washed all day long, almost drowning himself at it, his feathers remained as black as ever. And as the water weeds he ate did not agree with him, he got thinner and thinner, and at last he died.

Deny Natural Law And The Race Will Perish

Defy the commandments of the natural law, and the race will perish in a few generations; co-operate with them, and the race will flourish for ages to come. That is the fact; whether we like it or not, the universe is made that way. This commandment [God’s natural and moral law for the universe] is interesting because it specifically puts forward the moral law as the basis of the moral code; because God has made the world like this and will not alter it, therefore you must not worship your own fantasies, but pay allegiance to the truth.

Will “Women’s Rights” Be Abolished In Canada?

A note on the consequences of state-enforced adherence to postmodern gender ideology:

The consequences for modern feminism are easily noted.  Women like Germaine Greer, for instance, see clearly that if the binary distinction between men and women is not maintained, there is no such thing as women’s rights, no such thing as feminism, no such thing as equality before the law.  There’s only power – re-establishment of the patriarchy, in the pejorative sense of that term.  As Brandon Showalter reports in The Christian Post, women’s rights activists are noting that transgender policies cause the erasure of females, enable voyeurism, and allow eugenics on children.  Mary Lou Singleton, a feminist who is a member of the board of the leftist Women’s Liberation Front, says, “What we are seeing is the legal erasure of the material reality of sex, and this redefinition of sex as a set of, in my opinion, odious sex role stereotypes you identify with.”…

In other words, the state’s embrace of gender ideology leads to the idea that a child belongs to the state, not to parents, whose religious principles are considered dangerous to their children…

As noted, the demolition of the Jewish and Christian faiths is exactly what is desired by the genderists…

Ontario Makes Denying Postmodern Gender Ideology A Form of Child Abuse

Michael Coteau, the minister of child and family services, has tried to reassure parents the bill does not change the grounds for removal and will not make it easier for children to be seized from Christian homes…

But Coteau noted that telling an LBGT teen their identity is wrong or that they should change remains an act of abuse.

OTTAWA, June 15, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Canada’s Senate passed the Justin Trudeau Liberals’ transgender rights bill unamended this afternoon by a vote of 67 to 11, with three abstentions.

The bill adds “gender expression” and “gender identity” to Canada’s Human Rights Code and to the Criminal Code’s hate crime section…

Critics warn that under Bill C-16, Canadians who deny gender theory could be charged with hate crimes, fined, jailed, and compelled to undergo anti-bias training.

We Will Not Have Christ To Rule Over Us

To be absolutely honest, until yesterday I couldn’t have given two hoots whether or not Tim Farron was leader of the Liberal Democrat Party…

But I do believe it is nothing short of outrageous that Mr Farron felt forced to step down because of his devout Christian beliefs. Mr Farron says he could either be Lib Dem leader or a devout Christian: he did not feel it was possible to be both.

Could there be any more damning statement about the state of British political discourse?
