Black lives matter? Not if you are a kid getting into mischief and in danger of being crushed to death by an 800 pound gorilla.
The cuddly gorilla was a testosterone enhanced alpha male, and these suckers can and do kill other monkeys and even humans.
Some of these hyperventillating activists need to get a grip and get a life.
But the background is that "animal rights"agenda that sees an animal as just as valuable as a human.
Catholic bishop of Edmonton throws down the gauntlet: Catholic hospitals are no killing zones.
Activists lament they are tax supported so should not be able to do so. Sound familiar? Last week I noted how Obamacare regulations are trying to push abortion and sex change operations on hospitals that get "tax payer money"... so I predict the USA will see government regulations pushing murder in the next few years too, probably via the courts, as is being done in Canada...
John Paul II wrote an encyclical warning about this agenda in the early 1990's...
This will be pushed as "compassion", but the ultimate aim is to save money by rationing health care by QALY criteria, (where minorities will be overrepresented...) but offering "self deliverance" as an alternative. But for the independent upper class folks, there are already "discussions on death" that subtly use social pressure to encourage the "useless eaters" to get themselves dead one way or another....
It's not about gay rights: The agenda is a de-sexed society, imposed by public opinion and laws.
Physical reality exists independent of “gender identity non-discrimination” law—or any man-made law. Laws have no power to make reality go away, but they can change how people behave in response to reality. They can enforcedisregard for reality through speech protocols, social and economic pressures, invasions of privacy, and thought policing. And that is what the effect of Obama’s executive order is all about.
and that idea has consequences.
And yes, Pope Francis warned about this as a major problem in his long letter about marriage.... you know, the 360 page letter the press is ignoring, except when they find a catholic dissadent to interpret an ambiguous footnote to push their progressive agenda?
update: Several other bishops have recently joined in warning about the dangerous trend to deconstruct sexuality in the name of PC, including:
Pope Francis (link2)
The US Catholic bishops
the Polish Bishops
probably more but I'm too lazy to google more.
CWReport had this warning article in 2013.
and then there is this 2015 article:
“Gender ideology is demonic!” Pope Francis insists. He says that it militates against “the order of creation.” He sees it as so toxic, so destructive, that he has compared gender ideology to “the educational policies of Hitler.”
In Italy, Francis has become the spiritual inspiration for a nationwide movement to banish gender theory. This culminated in a huge demonstration in Rome this summer. As one article reported, “Hundreds of thousands of people from all over Italy responded to Pope Francis’ repeated warnings about gender ideology, by taking part in an enormous demonstration in the square of St. John Lateran in Rome on Saturday. The ‘Family Day’ was aimed at defending the traditional family and stopping the spread of gender ideology in schools.”
These warnings will not get publicity in the MSM any more than John Paul II;s warnings about medicalized killing....
