When all men speak well of you

While I have no axe to grind with the Pope, he does not represent me, nor do I acknowledge his authority within the universal church of Christ, of which I by God’s grace count myself a member. He represents a man-made hierarchy that has no basis in the Bible.

My interest in the Pope is purely eschatological. There’s an interesting character described in Revelation 13 (identified elsewhere as the “false prophet”) having “two horns like a lamb but who speaks like a dragon”. I marvel at how the Pope “pontificates” on the religion of global warming. While the world’s most influential population center, the Northeastern US, shivers under a winter that won’t end, the “scientists” have punted the ball to the Pope, who is gleefully carrying their religious message to the masses.

This article from NBC news reports that a mere 6% of people polled by NBC news and the Wall Street Journal view the Pope negatively. Those are pretty good numbers for Francis. Until you read Luke 6:26 “Woe to you, when all people speak well of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets.”

I’m not sure where we are on the eschatological time scale. But it is beginning to feel like we’re getting awfully close to the end. I can’t say that Francis is “the guy” from Revelation 13, but there are recurring prophetic themes that play throughout history, and this one is certainly humming a familiar tune.


Truth is stranger than fiction.  This is what happens when people abandon the Word and just make stuff up as they go along.  There is little chance this guy, an officer in the UMC, can possibly be a believer.  It is bad enough that he has sold his soul for abortion, but then despite his official role in a CHURCH to mock those who are defending the unborn is just purely hateful.  Let us all pray for Mr. Mefford, that he opens his Bible, and sees the light.

Decency defeated again

Shenendehowa’s Board of Education passed a policy last night granting biological males who “identify” as females access to girls bathrooms and locker room facilities. There were 25 people who got up to speak during the public comments (myself included, see news clips below). 20 were in opposition, 5 in support. I was sure the board would reconsider the policy. Instead they stalled and waited till almost 11pm to hold the vote (so most of the 100+ people and the news media who turned out in opposition to the policy would go home before they voted). Then they passed the measure 4-2. The reasoning they gave was that they were afraid someone would sue them even though the law is on the side of separate bathroom facilities. I stood up a second time and accused them of making a cowardly decision. I’m not expecting a Christmas card this year from the superintendent.

I wound up on the local news on all three networks:


ABC 10

NBC 13

You’ll be relieved to hear that I stopped short of breaking into Shania Twain’s “I Feel Like A Woman” during my comments in spite of immense comedic pressure to the contrary.

The one “transgender” student who was the vehicle for this entire policy that affects tens of thousands of students was offered a private bathroom by the school but rejected it in favor of creating controversy.

I don’t believe the strings here are being pulled locally. This is an agenda from higher up the food chain. The whole thing was shrouded in secrecy for eight months (during which time two board members, Rick Mincher and Mary Wiggins, abruptly and puzzlingly resigned with no explanation). The only reason there was any public meeting at all was because at the last meeting word was leaked that they were voting on this.

How do you fathers feel about a policy, now in effect, that allows a dude to share a bathroom, locker room and shower facilities with your daughter?

“Now when you see these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads because your redemption is drawing near.” — Luke 21:28
