A Double Does Of Wingnuttery

First up: Marsha West, a "freelance writer specializing in Christian worldview".  Let’s see what her Christian worldview is:

Radical feminism: The kiss of death

Oh, this isn’t going to be pretty.

The "great strides" made by the feminist movement have been lost on young celebrities. Britney Spears has been spotted frequenting nightspots with actress Lindsay Lohan and heiress Paris Hilton. Spears made headlines when the paparazzi photographed her pantyless, climbing out of a car.

Yes.  Don’t these celebrity women understand that radical feminism is about burning bras, and not going around pantyless?  Geez.

As a result of the feminist movement there are no gender-based role differences in many marriages. Wives wear the pants in the family, husbands show little or no leadership and are often wimps, and children are unmanageable. Is this what God intended for the family?


God intended women to wear skirts.  It’s in the Bible.  Somewhere.  I guess.

The Bible teaches that the husband is to lead, provide for, and protect his family. The wife is to help her husband by managing the household and taking care of the children. Children are to be raised with discipline and love. That’s God’s way.

"And while we’re at it — what happened to all that slavery that was in the Bible?"

Today’s children are train wreck.

What is that sentence?  Haiku?

They’re undisciplined, disrespectful and, frankly, as lazy as a Sunday morning. Sadly, this is the rule not the exception.

I don’t know about Marsha’s Sunday mornings, but there’s nothing disrespectful about my Sunday mornings.  (Lazy, perhaps… but never disrespectful).

Obviously something has gone terribly awry. Distinctions in masculine and feminine roles, ordained by God as part of the created order, have been blurred. Men have become un-masculine, thus unattractive to women; women have become un-feminine, thus unattractive to men.

Geez.  No WONDER everybody is gay.

Granted, some women have a feminine appearance. But don’t let that fool you. In the blink of an eye, females spew obscenities that would make a bull rider blush.

Hey, hey, hey.  I like women who spew obscenities.  Time and a place for everything, Marsha.

Marsha then bemoans all the terrible youth trends, like this:

At student dances all across America (including middle schools) kids are dirty dancing. Teens are simulating sex to the beat of the music, usually with, but not limited to, a partner.

Why, they’re even cutting "footloose"!  Somebody do something!

This sort of tawdry teenage conduct spooks some administrators. The principal of Manuel High School, Beverly Keepers, witnessed teens doing the nasty and had the good sense to turn up the lights.

That Beverly Keepers is one smart cookie.  There’s nothing that can stop students getting their freak on like a heavy dose of flourescent gymnasium lighting.

Soon chaperones were moving through the crowd, separating couples. "Nothing seemed to calm them down," Keepers said. "It’s difficult when you have 800 students to tap every one on the shoulder when they’re dancing inappropriately." Tapping 800 students on the shoulder would be exhausting!

I just love that last sentence.

(P.S.  Not that I want to help your cause, Miss Beverly Keepers, but rather than tapping students on the shoulder like some campy 1950’s movie, you could have turned off the music.  Just saying…)

But these are merely the problems.  Now it’s time to find the scapegoat:

The feminist movement has certainly done its fair share to corrupt the younger generation. Hollywood is partly responsible for the decadent behavior of our youth. Liberal educators also play a role.

Especially them liberal educators.  Bring back the good ol’ days when students were forced to WALTZ to algebra class.

But the bulk of the blame goes to parents for not doing their part to protect their children from indecency. One of a parent’s primary responsibilities is to instill moral values. It’s Mom and Dad’s job to teach their kids right from wrong. Which begs the question, "Why do so many parents trust liberals to educate their kids?"

Did we mention that Marsha West writes how-to books on homeschooling?  Oh.  Well, Marsha West writes how-to books on homeschooling.

Children are on loan from God.

Oh, lord.  I can’t take any more of this.  I’m losing interest in Ms Mrs. Marsha West.

At this point in time liberals are winning the culture war. In an interview with Rachel Davis, 13-year-old Kalli Kearney from Darnell-Cookman Middle School said nonchalantly, "Girls make out with girls. They have boyfriends, but they make out with girls."

Sadly, girls making out with girls has become commonplace.

Suddenly, I’m interested again.

No doubt sexual freedom is a dream come true for radical feminists. But it’s a nightmare for loving, sensible parents. Adolescents are having sex with no strings.

Right.  They’re using double-strength ropes and handcuffs now.

Okay.  Let’s move on to one of our stand-by favorites, Miss Marie Jon Apostrophe.  Ostensibly, Marie is writing about the fake Nancy Pelosi "scandal" (for background, see here). 

But Marie starts off, somewhat awkwardly, with some diatribe about capitalism.  I’ll leave in her original links.

In America, everyone has the opportunity to become wealthy. In our country millionaires and billionaires thrive because of opportunity afforded our citizenry. Monetary means can be gained under our capitalistic system. Most of America’s amply-rich are self-made, hard working entrepreneurs.

If you stay in school and live a decent life, you also can obtain the American dream. Becoming successful in life no longer has anything to do with one’s race, creed or color; it has to do with one’s personal goals and achievements, and how high one sets the bar.

America’s Top Ten Self-Made Billionaires

  1. William H. Gates III
  2. Warren E. Buffett
  3. Sheldon Adelson
  4. Lawrence J. Ellison
  5. Paul G. Allen
  6. Jim C Walton
  7. Christy Walton
  8. S. Robson Walton
  9. Michael Dell
  10. Alice L. Walton

It’s very nice of Marie to link to the wikipedia definition of "capitalism".  But perhaps she ought to look up the word "self-made". 

Look at her list of "America’s Top Ten Self-Made Billionaires".  Interesting how nearly HALF of these "self-made" billionaires achieved their enormous wealth by setting their goals high, and going through the hard-working rigors of, well, being BORN to mega-billionaire Sam Walton, or by MARRYING one of his children. 

Nice work if you can get it.

Way to shoot down your own point, Marie.
