Schools are anxious to avoid parental oversight because they are harming children

Do you wonder why school boards are so anxious to call in the FBI to investigate concerned parents for “domestic terrorism”? In this post, I’ll talk about two news stories and one study. These items show how schools are harmful to children. And I think that this is the reason that schools are so anxious to keep parents at arm’s length. They aren’t working for parents anymore.

The first story you may already have heard about. It comes from the same Virginia county where school board members tried to get the FBI to investigate parents who were concerned about the teaching of critical race theory (i.e. – racism) in schools.

Fox News reports:

Fairfax County Public Schools reinstated two books that parents have condemned as obscene and pedophilic, claiming that two committees of school administrators, librarians, parents, and students determined that the books did not contain pedophilia and did not violate regulations by including obscene material. Parents condemned the move in comments to Fox News.

“Lawn Boy” by Jonathan Evison includes long sections of a boy reminiscing about explicit experiences he had at 10 years old and “Gender Queer: A Memoir,” by Maia Kobabe includes photos of sexual acts between a boy and a man.

Fairfax County Public Schools announced that it had restored the books to libraries after two committees reviewed them.

It’s important to understand that the teachers, librarians, administrators and school board members do not side with children against pedophiles. Liberal women have always been more vulnerable to the desire to be people pleasers. They form their moral views by adapting to the people around them. Wealthy pedophiles like the former mayor of Seattle are crying and sobbing for access to children. And liberal women have swallowed moral relativism whole. They lack any system of objective morality that would allow them to judge pedophiles as morally wrong. If they are crying, these liberal women reason, then we have to give them what they want.

What if parents object?

I noticed that the previous Fox News article said this about a concerned parent: “VA mom Stacy Langton was told by acting Principal Maureen Keck that she is banned from Fairfax High School’s library.” Those sorts of fascist tactics against parents are not unusual. Notice that the principal is a progressive woman. Not a man. It’s the women who are leading the charge to sexualize children, as their pedophile masters demand.

School boards do not allow concerned parents to read from these books at meetings. They cut their microphones or eject them from the meetings.

Fox News reports:

A speaker at a Florida school board meeting was removed for using vulgar language after reading aloud from a highly sexualized book available at the high school’s public library.

Alicia Farrant, a member of the Orange County chapter of the parent group Moms For Liberty, recorded a video from an Orange County Florida School Board meeting earlier this week where Board Chair Teresa Jacobs instructs police officers to remove a man who was reading passages from the book “Gender Queer: A Memoir.”, according to Orange Observer.

“I’m going to read a passage of a book that’s floating around in your schools that has been banned from many other schools,” Jacob Engels, the man who was removed, said. “As a member of the LGBT community, the fact that this is floating around for children as young as ninth grade is concerning.”

Engels then began reading a passage of the book that described sexual acts using strap-on devices before he was interrupted by Jacobs.

“Sir,” she said as members of the audience urged him to continue. “Mr. Engels, you’re out of order. … Remove him from the chambers.”

Again, notice that the school board member who had the man removed is a progressive woman. They are in the lead of the project to sexualize children for their pedophile masters. They are not working for parents. They are manufacturing prey for predators, because the predators are crying crocodile tears for prey.

This is what you get when you let feminism run wild, so that progressive women are no longer concerned about the moral leadership of men. Men are charged with the protection of animals and children. Normally, we challenge women who want to offer up animals and children to predators in the name of compassion and non-judgmentalism. But it doesn’t work on radical feminists – they don’t listen to men’s moral leadership. They’re more concerned about being liked, and eradicating all moral judgments.

But it’s not just pedophilia. The current p4nd3mic has given progressive women in the education system a wonderful opportunity to signal their virtue – by m4sking children who face a relatively lower threat from the Chinese virus. But does this virtue signaling harm children?

The UK Daily Mail reports on a new study:

  • Face masks and other social distancing measures may in fact impede on children’s development, a new study executed by Brown University has found

  • The probe analyzed the cognitive development of the youngsters through infancy, childhood and adolescence

  • In the study, researchers first analyzed 1,070 assessments administered on 605 kids prior to March 2020, when COVID lockdowns and masking began

  • A further 154 assessments from 118 kids administered between March 2020 and June 2021, during the height of the pandemic, were then carried out 

  • Thirty-nine children born in 2018 and 2019 were analyzed over the course of the pandemic, into 2021.

  • The report found that there was a 23 per cent drop in scores measuring kids’ intelligence quotients since the start of the pandemic

  • The study also found similar dips in the same span in regards to developing children’s ability to communicate, both verbally and though subtle facial cues 

I think it’s important for parents to learn from the actions of the teachers. It is so easy to look at the feminine face of one of these teachers, and think “she is so pretty, how could a woman do anything wrong? They are the guardians of morality!” That’s the dominant view today in our churches, and even among many conservatives. They want to be “chivalrous”. And chivalry is good. Except when this desire to not judge women leads to children being harmed. We need men in the churches to do a better job of holding women accounting to the Bible, and to the moral law. We can’t be swayed by their pleasing appearances. Or our desire for sex, which is the cause of many Christian men’s cowardice.

In Finland, Christians face criminal charges for quoting the Bible

Do you know how atheist Democrats like Bernie Sanders praise “Scandinavian countries”? Well, it turns out that those countries are not very good at protecting basic liberties, like free speech and freedom of religion. One of them in particular – Finland – has declared war on Christians, and is dragging them into court.

The Federalist reports:

In more than two decades as a pastor, [Juhana] Pohjola has ministered to congregations as small as 30. He has spent his life building a network of faithful churches across Finland, many of which started with a few people gathered for prayer, Bible study, hymn-singing—and communion, if they can get a pastor. In an in-person interview with The Federalist, Pohjola urged fellow Christian leaders to be willing to seek out “one lost sheep” instead of crowds and acclaim.

This is the man who appears to be the first in the post-Soviet Union West to be brought up on criminal charges for preaching the Christian message as it has been established for thousands of years. Also charged in the case that goes to trial on January 24 is Pohjola’s fellow Lutheran and a Finnish member of Parliament, Paivi Rasanen.

Rasanen’s alleged crime… include tweeting a picture of a Bible verse. Potential penalties if they are convicted include fines and up to two years in prison.

Rasanen and Pohjola are being charged with “hate speech” for respectively writing and publishing a 24-page 2004 booklet that explains basic Christian theology about sex and marriage, which reserves sex exclusively for within marriage, which can only consist of one man and one woman, for life. The Finnish prosecutor claims centuries-old Christian teachings about sex “incite hatred” and violate legal preferences for government-privileged identity groups.

What’s interesting is that the booklet was written 7 years before Finland decided that speech critical of LGBT was “hate speech”. You would think that it would be exempt, but it’s not. If the same thing happened here, that means that any public defense of Christian teachings on sexual morality would become “criminal” after the bill, e.g. – the “Equality Act”, were signed into law.

The article notes that laws that criminalize “hate speech”, i.e. – Biblical teachings on sexuality, already exist in European countries, and even in some Commonwealth countries like Australia and Canada.

Humans rights lawyer Paul Coleman of the ADF is quoted in the article:

“Although all European countries have these hate speech laws, and these hate speech laws are increasingly being used against citizens for things that they say, this is the first time we’ve really seen Christians face criminal prosecution for explaining their biblical views,” Coleman said. “…It’s unprecedented. We’ve not seen attacks on free speech on this level in Europe, and that’s why they are extremely important cases, not just for the people of Finland and Paivi Rasanen and the bishop themselves, but for all of Europe. If this is upheld in one jurisdiction, we will no doubt see it in other jurisdictions as well.”

Such “hate speech” laws exist in every European country and Western countries such as Canada and Australia, and descend from Soviet influence. Coleman called them “sleeper laws,” saying that in other countries “they could be used any time just like they are in Finland. People need to mobilize against these laws and overturn them.”

These laws are typically used to frighten all the Christians from promoting their views. If they torture one Christian and make an example of them, then the others learn to fall in line. Many “Christians” even join with their oppressors, hoping to avoid punishment.

What I really get concerned about is when conservative Christians show no interest in reading about these things. They say things like “well, maybe the church will get stronger with persecution?” and “well, the Bible says that things like this will happen in the last days?” But that’s not what happened in Canada when these laws were passed. Christians in Canada went underground on these issues, so much that the “Conservative” Party of Canada has completely given up on social issues. (Although you should still vote for them as the best of several bad alternatives) I think Christians who say these things just don’t want to be bothered with having to read about these issues, and then be convincing to others. That’s why I read books by people like Michael Brown and Ryan T. Anderson, to learn how to argue these controversial issues. It seems to me that some people are using pious-sounding words as a way to get out from having to prepare to fight, and then fighting. We need to do better. And that’s not to even mention the large-scale capitulation to the secular left being done by leaders of formerly conservative denominations like the SBC.

Wisconsin District Attorney John Chisolm and his teacher union wife Colleen

In this post, I wanted to talk about the latest news about famous Democrat District Attorney John Chisholm , about his wife Colleen Chisolm. John Chisolm is linked to the most recent act of domestic terrorism / mass murder that occurred in Wisconsin. The suspect in the case has a long criminal record, and  made violent statements against white people on social media.

Here is the connection, reported in the New York Post:

The district attorney facing criticism after the alleged Waukesha Christmas parade crash killer was freed on bond two days before the carnage previously admitted his progressive reforms “guaranteed” killers could be put back on the street.

Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm, who was elected to the position in 2007, has spent his career supporting cash-bail system reform because he argues it criminalizes poverty.

In an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel the year he was elected, Chisholm said: “Is there going to be an individual I divert, or I put into treatment program, who’s going to go out and kill somebody?”

“You bet. Guaranteed. It’s guaranteed to happen. It does not invalidate the overall approach.”

Chisholm has long pushed to divert nonviolent offenders away from the prison system with alternate programs, and has spoken previously about reducing the number of incarcerations in Milwaukee County.

You can read all about  the full criminal record of Darrell Brooks here at The Post Millennial:

Brooks is a career criminal with multiple priors and was released from jail two days prior to the incident after posting a $1,000 bail for three misdemeanors and two felonies. He has a history of resisting arrest, obstruction, battery, statutory sexual seduction, strangulation and suffocation, property destruction, illegal firearm possession, bail jumping, domestic violence, drug related charges and is a registered sex offender.

This is the kinds of person that Democrat voters support.

Brooks is also a supporter of Black Lives Matter (BLM), as reported by the New York Post.

So, why was Brooks released on $1000 bail for the earlier crime? I think the answer is “compassion”. Democrats are very compassionate about punishing criminals like Brooks.  They are opposed to using police and prisons to punish sex offenders and domestic abusers like Darrell Brooks.

Using police as a weapon against conservatives

But do you know who they are not compassionate about? Conservatives. Take former Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, and his Act 10 bill, which made it possible for workers to opt out of paying unions dues. Unions make massive political donations to Democrats. They favor all sorts of liberal policies, like abortion, transgenderism, illegal immigration, opposition to school choice, etc. John Chisolm had no problem at all using law enforcement to go after conservatives who supported Act 10. He sent armed police to conduct pre-dawn raids on people like Cindy Archer, who were advocating for the law.

National Review reported on the Chisholm police raids:

In two separate reports, National Review described these raids in detail. (The court cited our reports in its opinion.) On October 3, 2013, multiple Wisconsin conservatives were awakened by a persistent pounding on the door, their houses were illuminated by floodlights, and police — sometimes with guns drawn — poured into their homes. Once inside, the investigators turned the private residences of these innocent conservative citizens “upside down,” seeking an extraordinarily broad range of documents and information. These raids were supplemented by subpoenas that secured for investigators massive amounts of electronic information.

[…]The raid victims have suffered severe, long-term consequences as a result of these raids. Almost to a person, they say they no longer feel secure in their own homes. They report watching what they say, terrified that overt political involvement could lead their homes to be invaded again. One victim said, “I tried to create a home where the kids always feel safe. Now they know they’re not. They know men with guns can come in their house, and there’s nothing we can do.” Another victim — whose son was home alone when police arrived, guns drawn — is haunted by this chilling thought: “He could have been in the shower. They could have broken the door down. He could have been shot. Over politics.”

By the way, this Legal News Online article about his wife, Colleen Chisolm, sheds light on his motivation for using law enforcement as a weapon against conservatives.

Now a longtime [John] Chisholm subordinate reveals for the first time in this article that the district attorney may have had personal motivations for his investigation. Chisholm told him and others that Chisholm’s wife, Colleen, a teacher’s union shop steward at a school in St. Francis, which is near Milwaukee, had been repeatedly moved to tears by Walker’s anti-union policies in 2011, according to the former staff prosecutor in Chisholm’s office. Chisholm said in the presence of the former prosecutor that his wife “frequently cried when discussing the topic of the union disbanding and the effect it would have on the people involved … She took it personally.”

[…]Chisholm added… that “he felt that it was his personal duty to stop Walker from treating people like this.”

She cried, then he sent armed police to their houses. Law enforcement isn’t to protect taxpayers. Apparently, it’s to enforce secular leftist views on taxpayers.

Lock them in Hell, throw away the key

People ask me sometimes how I, as a Christian apologist, explain the doctrine of eternal fiery punishment in Hell. Well, I have two answers for that. First, an answer that relies on legal principles and philosophy of religion. Second, an answer where I point at secular left fascists like Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, John Chisholm and Colleen Chisholm. Where else would you put psychopaths who reject basic morality?
