The Golden Rule has been one of the cornerstones of Man’s many attempts at faith for literally thousands and thousands of the years. But, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” is really only appropriate if you’re fairly normal for your culture. If you’re freaky – or in a foreign, alien land – not so much. 😉 Hell! Probably not at all in some your cases.

Ah, the consistent illogic and bias of Anti-Semites worldwide, and especially those polluting our nation with their living within its borders. The Muslims of both the West Bank and the Palestinian Authority have long ago codified that the official religion of their areas is Islam and their official language is Arabic, and this is somewhere between A-OK and ignored by the Left, who hate Israel and any Jews who are insufficiently Leftist and critical of Israel’s existence. And, at the same time, Israel being formally a Jewish nation and having Hebrew as its national language is by their accounting racist – an example in their hate-filled minds of how Israel is an apartheid state.
Either your beliefs matter or they don’t. Do your beliefs matter? Or are you one of many, many, many sorts who claim beliefs but stay silenced by the fears of opprobrium? If you’re the latter what does that say about you?
Or, maybe it says more about your beliefs – not the content thereof, but your actual understanding of them. Maybe you don’t really believe in what you think you do. Maybe, that belief or yours is just a convenient placeholder and placard for what you really believe.
Yeah, we don’t talk about Pluto being a planet or why it was “reclassified” as a Dwarf Planet. It’s highly frowned upon amongst the “intelligentsia” to do so and even more derided among the Liberals and Progressives, who will call one some variant of “knuckle-dragging science-denier.” Nobody is supposed to talk about how in August of 2006 a mostly European conclave of accepted masters of the astronomy, the International Astronomical Union (IAU), needed to make a new definition for planet so that an American wouldn’t be credited with discovering Planet X.
And, for the many of you that don’t know, Pluto was just collateral damage. The IAU’s exuberance of Humpty-Dumptyism was aimed at permanently refuting the discovery by and American of a planetary body past Pluto.
Accepted by so many, secular science and scientism aside, the effects of this choice and insult may just be more far-reaching than the vast majority of people want to understand and internalize. I mean really? You can’t look back and see what’s happened – and at what pace! – to the world since 2006 vs. what was happening before then? 😉
According to Woke Theology, an offshoot of Black Liberation Theology created and co-opted by “White” Liberals, their Jesus not only doesn’t want his cultists to forgive people, he demands that they never forgive any past statement or action that goes against the tenets-of-the-day of Wokeness.
