The First Openly _______ ??
Another threshold of implied bigotry has been crossed in America. This Missouri Football player announces he “is gay”. Barack Obama.... JFK (first Catholic POTUS) ..... Jackie Robinson of course..... Lee Elder.... Danica Patrick.... trailblazing pioneers taking “one giant leap for.....”
It got me to thinking. In our lifetime, will we see an openly Conservative Major College CHANCELLOR ??
AND.... we shine a spotlight on BullyBarber’s church people .....
Liberals are vociferously aggressive at grabbing control of anything and everything they can. Hijacking “words” is an especially curious penchant of theirs. How did “gay” come to mean homosexual?
I am old enough to recall when “gay” meant festive, happy, cheerful, etc. Then VOILA one day.....
It became a synonym for homosexual. Was there a referendum on that or just “an Executive Order”?
When the Univ of Virginia alma mater was written I doubt “homosexual” was on anyone’s minds with .....
“We come from old Virginia, where all is bright and gay
Let’s all join hands and give a yell for the dear old UVA. “
Over the years their rivals over in Blacksburg probably had fun with that. Like the bottom-feeder faction among NCStaters who giggle as they write “Tar Holes”. Should NC State AD Debbie Yow publicly object to that? Oh well....
So much for today’s lesson in colloquial semantics.
So will we EVER see an openly Conservative Chancellor/President at a major mainstream university?
I am qualifying that because, obviously, we do have Conservatives running private universities such as Liberty, Hillsdale, Wheaton, Bob Jones, etc.
Since big universities are huge businesses and many consume A LOT of taxpayer dollars, shouldn’t “business management skills” trump political ideology when selecting a CEO?
Is the ability to understand a P&L and analyze ROI and “manage a very complicated enterprise employing 1,000s of people” not seen as important as “leading a candlelight vigil” and “empathizing” and “getting a tingle down ones leg when a big-shot lib politician / activist visits campus”. I’m just asking.
I’m not discounting the need for touchy-feely types within a university hierarchy, as young people can be fragile works in progress for sure. But maybe the CEO should be a more pragmatic big-picture kinda personality.
So, will we see a Conservative CEO at a major mainstream university any time soon? He or she will have to climb over a mountain of dead bodies of wacky nutjob faculty loons to get there. Sounds like a win-win situation to me.
A number of you are confused by the “Religio” part of this Religio-Political assault being led by Bully Barber
and his motley mini-mob. Confusing you is a key tactic in their assault.
They want you to believe that mainstream churches (the Billy Graham and King James’ type) are in league with Bully’s Gang. That is NOT the case at all.
"Those kind of churches" take that separation of church & state seriously. If they don't, the hypocrical media (The N&O) go ballistic.
The churchy people you see hovering around Bully are from what is euphemistically referred to as progressive (radical-liberal) sects
. Raleigh’s Pullen Baptist
and Chapel Hill’s Olin T. Binkley Baptist
are the two most well-known in the Triangle area.
A list is available here – LINK.
Many of these are UCC .... United Church of Christ
They consider themselves untouchable by church-state separation restrictions because.....???? They just DO.
The same "just because" liberals always use.... knowing their media co-horts will never call them out.
These sects see The Bible like Obama sees The US Constitution.... as an Etch-A-Sketch that they can turn upside down and completely redo to suit ever-evolving socio-cultural agendas.
YOWSA... is THAT an incredible simile or what! ..... "they see The Bible as an Etch-A-Sketch...."
If you prefer The Bible as a Handbook For Situational Ethics you might consider joining one of these sects.
The Ten Commandments are “Ten Suggestions” and most of the key individuals you learned about in Sunday School are, in their version
, gay, black, vegetarian, environmentalists and pro-abortion.... who knew?
UNC legend Dean Smith
fell under the theological tutelage of Olin T. Binkley’s messianic founder – Robert Seymour
. To paraphrase Seymour – the Bible is a fine book of suggestions on living one’s life. But those two parts about the Virgin Birth and Resurrection are really not that big a deal.
Ergo, Christmas and Easter are not “big deals” with the Binkley folks. That phrase don’t build a church for Easter Sunday
did not apply to OTB.
The Robert Seymour of Pullen Baptist was the late W.W. Finlator
. The folks at The N&O LOVE ol’ Bill Finlator. The folks at The N&O don’t like Billy Graham at all.... but LOVE Finlator and, of course, LOVE Reverend BullyBarber.
Binkley and Pullen folk, and their ilk, are first and foremost into progressive (extremist liberal) politics and “social justice”. I’m not sure what those terms mean. I suggest you ask one of’em. Be prepared for some first-class sanctimonious gobbledygook. VERY sanctimonious. I’ve found “these people” to be VERY VERY sanctimonious.
The only "sin" they recognize is "voting Republican".... and Rush Limbaugh is their concept of Satan. FWIW.... finding a heterosexual male minister at one of these “progressive (radical liberal) churches” is getting darn near impossible.
We will talk more about BullyBarber and his Churchy mob in later commentaries.
