Newly published scientific investigations into the Turin Shroud have identified the outline of the scrotum and right hand thumb of the man outlined on the cloth. If the Shroud is authentic, this would seem to supply clear evidence that Jesus was, in fact, male. But a recent book by Giulio Fanti and Pierandrea Malfi aside, the majority of scholars believe that the Shroud is almost certainly a medieval forgery.
Which brings us back to the question: how do we know Jesus had male genitalia? To be sure, his behavior in the Gospels and the way that he is described by early Christian sources presuppose that he was male, but this does not necessarily tell us as much about his gender as we might think….
The rest, mercifully, disappears behind a paywall. It galls many that Jesus came as a man, and refers to God as “Our Father”. This, you see, implies an inequity, one that cannot be broached. In the same way, Mary, Mother of God, cuts out men.
This article reminds me of a thing going around Twitter a week or two back, in which some young prog woman expressed genuine amazement that men were stronger than women. She was amazed because she have been taught Equality from birth. It’s in everything, movies, TV, education, everywhere. I say and say again, propaganda works.

This is what democracy looks like, all right.
A recent ruling from Germany’s highest court has cast right-to-die incrementalism aside and conjured a fundamental right both to commit suicide and to receive assistance in doing it. Moreover, the decision has explicitly rejected limiting the right to people diagnosed with illnesses or disabilities. As a matter of protecting “the right of personality,” the court decreed that “self-determined death” is a virtually unlimited fundamental liberty that the government must guarantee to protect “autonomy.” In other words, the German people now have the right to kill themselves at any time and for any reason….
The right to suicide also includes a right to assist suicide…
The court also opined that Germany’s drug laws might have to be changed to facilitate the absolute right to die that “the state must guarantee”.
Come to St Mercy Hospital! Our doctors are better at killing patients than at any other hospital in Germany. Patients die at least 45% faster than the next leading Death Center.

(*St Mercy Hospital cannot guarantee patients who self murder will not go to Hell. Though their doctors will received bonuses for every organ they can salvage from patient bodies.)
Harvard Law School Receives Backlash Against Religious Freedom Clinic (Harvard Crimson)
Harvard Law School students allege administrators have been insufficiently transparent regarding the development of its new Religious Freedom Clinic, expressing concerns about its potential to enable BGLTQ discrimination.
Wait. BGLTQ? Isn’t that reordering discriminatory to cultures who don’t use the Latin alphabet? Trannies still get the short stick (assuming they haven’t cut it off) by coming in last. Well, second to last. Why is Q tacked on? Why isn’t it BGLQT?
But then we recall it’s Harvard, where the students aren’t expected to be that bright.
“Without the guarantee that such a Religious Freedom Clinic would not provide legal services in support of anti-LGBTQ+ and anti-reproductive justice causes, we do not understand how such a clinic could be housed at HLS,” the letter reads. “We are also concerned by the lack of transparency and student engagement surrounding the development of the Religious Freedom Clinic.”
The kiddies are angry there might be people still aligned with Reality. And they hate it. They will not stand for it at their Cathedral.
They’ll get their way, too, for theses are not snowflakes. These are the people in charge.
On Friday, Kevin Brown will be inaugurated as the 18th president of Asbury University in Wilmore, topping off a week of anger, shame and sadness on the conservative private Christian campus.
Two popular and beloved faculty—Jon Roller and Jill Campbell—were recently told their contracts would not be renewed. According to numerous accounts, it’s because they were supportive of Asbury’s LGBTQ students. Roller, who got his undergraduate degree at Asbury, founded and teaches in the Worship Arts program and Campbell is an assistant professor in music education and voice…
“As an intentional intellectual and Christ-centered community, Asbury University pledges to extend compassion and care to ALL of our students,” he wrote in an email. He also referred to the Asbury University Statement on Human Sexuality which clearly states that “sexual immorality,” e.g. premarital sex, adultery, and all forms of “same-sex practice,” would result in disciplinary action.
Once again, progs can’t stand that anybody could require natural law, even in private institutions which avow it. There are cowards in ostensible command in most places, so you can’t bet against the university folding, even when they don’t have to.
For now. Being in a democracy means morality is decided by popular vote. The crowd will win, it’s just a matter of time.
If you can’t say something nice about the virus, then don’t say anything.

Eleonore Laloux has battled all her life to be treated like others. Now the 34-year-old is waging a new campaign: to become one of the first women in France with Down syndrome to win a local council seat in this month’s municipal elections.
Armed with a broad smile and a gritty determination, Laloux is canvassing for support in Arras, her hometown in northern France, talking up her ambitions for a cleaner town and improved access for disabled people. But above all, a fairer society.
“I’ve fought hard to live with Down syndrome. It doesn’t trouble me any longer,” Laloux said.
“Now I am fighting for inclusion. Handicapped people have their place in society.”
They do have their place, and that place is not in government in charge of other people. God bless this Laloux, but Equality taken to its necessary extreme (for anything short of Equality is discriminatory), means anybody can be a leader. Even the incapable.
People are now so afeared of being seen as not nice that they will make the most egregious mistakes.
