Some arrogant half brained stupid people in the U.S.
A “non-binary” college professor expressed himself re pedophilia. Non-binary is a term for people whose gender identity doesn’t sit comfortably with “man” or “woman.”
The man expressing himself was Allyn Walker, Associate Professor at Old Dominion University. He has called for the “stigma” of pedophilia to be “delegitimized.”
The professor was once a female. Now, a male.
He says the term “minor attracted person” should be used in preference to “pedophilia” because pedophiles might be hurt otherwise. Minor attracted person is “less stigmatizing.”
Walker claims “pedophilia is merely another form of sexual attraction and should be tolerated.”
The professor says he is not a pedophile, but admits to being “queer.”
Well, it is constantly said freedom of expression should exist at the college level. To this extent? There are limits to everything.
Which brings me to pedophilia and the French Catholic Church. The French Church has recently announced it will be selling Church assets to compensate sexually abused victims.
The right thing to do. Those abused have a right to be compensated for the wrong done to them.
The French Church is well heeled. It can afford to sell some of its art, gold, real property, and other assets and investments.
The Catholic Church world wide intentionally remained blind to the wrongdoing for decades. Now, the fiddler must be paid.
The announcement reminds me of the 1968 movie The Shoes of the Fisherman. Anthony Quinn played a Pope.
China was besieged with a starving population. China threatened all out world war to gain food for its starving masses. Quinn as Pope avoided the war by agreeing to sell all of the Catholic Church’s property to help the Chinese and ward off the war.
Closing statements and the Court’s charge today in the Kyle
Rittenhouse case. The matter will go to the jury for consideration late today or first thing tomorrow.
I do not have a feeling as to the outcome. I have not watched enough of the trial to be sufficiently knowledgeable.
There is one item I would like to address, however. One outside the trial itself. One that shows how media can cause twisted information to become part of a case.
A few days ago certain media outlets claimed Kyle’s mother said Biden was going to be sued for libel. The libel being he referred to her son as a “white supremacist.”
She warned Kyle’s attorneys would take care of the matter.
The mother denied Kyle was a white supremacist: “He is not a white supremacist. He is not a racist.”
The situation did not make sense to me at the time. However I did not have time to research it. I finally got to it yesterday afternoon.
The mother’s position came to light in a recent interview of her by FOX News’ Sean Hannity. The incident in which it is claimed Biden defamed her son took place more than a year ago on September 29, 2020.
It involved a comment made by Biden in his debate with Trump the evening of September 29. A portion of Biden’s comments became part of a Biden video at the time which was tweeted. Note again, during the Presidential campaign.
The video included an image of Kyle Rittenhouse carrying an AR-15 rifle with the caption: “There’s no other way to put it: The President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night.”
The comment and video as prepared unrelated to what has been going on in the court room this past week.
A new Cuban revolt festering? Perhaps. A problem. Present revolutionary Cubans lack the money and equipment to wage a revolution.
Yesterday, Cuban exiles in Miami marched and participated in a car caravan in support of Cubans who were to mount a protest today in Havana.
Can Castro’s revolution be overthrown 62 years later?
Syracuse/Drexel basketball yesterday. Syracuse won 75-60. It did not look like Syracuse was a winner at the end of the first half which found Syracuse trailing 33-32.
The second half was another story. Syracuse came out aggressively and outshot Drexel 43-27.
Enjoy your day!
I don’t see any way Rittenhouse will be found guilty of any of the remaining charges against him, now that the judge dismissed the gun possession charges against him. The only charge that could not be disputed.
Calling for delegitimizing pedophilia stigma. I called this one several years ago. Easy to see it coming Lou.
Well, maybe for you pedophiles, but not for the rest of us.
Hey Lou, a basic internet search would also produce an August 2020 Biden interview with CNN Anderson cooper where Biden said and i QUOTE: “ “Look, I don’t know enough to know whether that 17-year-old kid — exactly what he did. But allegedly he’s part of a militia coming out of the state of Illinois,”
Sounds pretty benign to me.
Trump is still roaming free, why should we expect Rittenhouse’s brush with justice to end up any different. America is doomed with these kinds low-life. Soon the right can resume the “party first” rhetoric and exacerbate the divide in America.
Are you off your meds again?
Sounds both reasonably thought through and measured to me.
