Swarthmore College Offers Courses In ‘queering God’ and “queering The Bible”

Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania should be discouraging Cultural Marxism –  destroying all traditions, capitalism, tradition family, Christianity, individuality, liberty… to create a socialist utopia.

One of the nation’s most prestigious liberal arts colleges is advancing a “queer theology” agenda with hopes of destabilizing traditional beliefs about what the Bible says about gender and sexuality…

“Queering the Bible” is a one-credit class that surveys “queer and trans readings of biblical texts.”

“By reading the Bible with the methods of queer and trans theoretical approaches, this class destabilizes long held assumptions about what the Bible – and religion – says about gender and sexuality,” the course description reads.

The school’s religion department is also teaching a class that questions the sexuality of the Almighty called, “Queering God: Feminist and Queer Theology.”

“The God of the Bible and later Jewish and Christian literature is distinctively masculine, definitely male. Or is He?” the course description reads. “If we can point out places in traditional writings where God is nurturing, forgiving, and loving, does that mean that God is feminine, or female?”

Key themes of that particular class include exploring the “tensions between feminist and queer theology” and examines “feminist and queer writings about God.”


Critics blasted the college’s religion courses and suggested they were meant to undermine Christianity.

“This is about sanitizing and neutralizing the prohibitions on homosexual acts that Scripture unequivocally condemns,” one observer noted online.

The president of Truett-McConnell University, a conservative Christian school in Georgia, accused Swarthmore of prostituting the Bible.

“If there were a list entitled, “Best Snowflake Colleges in America,” I am quite certain that Swarthmore College would be near the top of the list,” Dr. Emir Caner told the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “Keep in mind, this is an institution of higher learning that has produced such ‘accomplished’ politicians as failed presidential candidate Michael Dukakis.”…

Dr. Robert Jeffress, the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas and a spiritual advisor to President Trump, warned about the spiritual dangers of twisting God’s word.

“In suggesting that God is ‘queer’ Swarthmore College is guilty of nothing short of modern day idolatry,” Jeffress told the Todd Starnes Radio Show.

“When you read the Bible you will discover that God reserved His harshest condemnation for individuals and nations that practiced idolatry – creating an imaginary god who conformed to a culture’s immorality,” Jeffress said.  FoxNews

DHS Calls Pennsylvania Shootings A Terror Attack, Blasts Chain Migration

Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty shot at Capital police and State troopers in Harrisburg, PA.  The shootings resulted in a trooper shot and the suspect killed.

A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spokesman late Saturday labeled a string of shootings in Harrisburg, Pa., targeting police officers a terror attack and used the incident to criticize chain migration.

Tyler Houlton said in a tweet that DHS confirmed that the suspect, 51-year-old Ahmed Amin El-Mofty, benefited from extended family chain migration, which takes place when immigrants in the U.S. sponsor other family members for visas.

“Ahmed Amin El-Mofty was a naturalized U.S. citizen who was admitted to the United States from Egypt on a family-based immigrant visa. El-Mofty was killed yesterday in a shootout after allegedly opening fire and targeting police at multiple locations in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania,” the acting DHS press secretary said. “The long chain of migration that led to the suspect’s admission into the United States was initiated years ago by a distant relative of the suspect.

El-Mofty allegedly opened fire on police officers in three different locations in the state’s capital on Friday. The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were reportedly investigating whether the shootings could be considered an act of terror.

Houlton said the attack in Pennsylvania and another case in which a suspect was arrested on terror-related money laundering charges “highlight the Trump administration’s concerns with extended family chain migration.

“Both chain migration and the diversity visa lottery program have been exploited by terrorists to attack our country,” he said. “Not only are the programs less effective at driving economic growth than merit-based immigration systems used by nearly all other countries, the programs make it more difficult to keep dangerous people out of the United States and to protect the safety of every American.”

Little Sisters Of The Poor Back In Court

The 2016 decision by the Supreme Court was a victory for the Little Sisters of the Poor.  The Supreme Court ruling is not enough for California and Pennsylvania.

“We just want to be able to continue our religious mission of caring for the elderly poor as we have over 175 years,” said Mother Loraine Marie Maguire with the Little Sisters of the Poor, according to Townhall. “We pray that these state governments will leave us alone and let us do our work in peace.”

The Little Sisters of the Poor are returning to court after several states filed lawsuits against the religious exemption from the new Department of Health and Human Services rule, according to Becket, the non-profit law firm representing the Catholic nuns in California and Pennsylvania.

Last month, HHS handed down a new rule with a broad religious exemption for non-profits like the Little Sisters to prevent them from having to make available services in their healthcare plans that violate their faith, like the week-after pill.

California and Pennsylvania filed lawsuits a short time after the new mandate was issued to stop the religious exemption.

California’s lawsuit claims the new rule is unconstitutional because it singles out and harms women, blocking their Fifth Amendment rights to equal protection under the law. The suit also claims the rule change permits employers to discriminate against employees through their religious beliefs, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

“Millions of women could be denied needed contraceptive care against the advice of science, public health and medical professionals,” said Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro at a press conference at Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania’s clinic last month, according to The Inquirer.

The Little Sisters of the Poor are requesting the court intervenes to make sure they don’t have to go against their faith when providing healthcare plans.

“Becket has argued all along that the government has many ways to provide services to women who want them as well as protect the Little Sisters,” a case summary states on Becket’s website. “Neither the federal government nor the state governments need nuns to help them give out contraceptives.”

“We just want to be able to continue our religious mission of caring for the elderly poor as we have over 175 years,” said Mother Loraine Marie Maguire with the Little Sisters of the Poor, according to Townhall. “We pray that these state governments will leave us alone and let us do our work in peace.”

In what was hailed as a victory for the Little Sisters of the Poor in May 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ordered lower courts to once again review a case involving Obamacare’s contraception mandate.

The mandate in question required religious groups to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions.

“The Supreme Court said that the Little Sisters are protected from having to pay these massive government fines or choose to violate their religious beliefs, and the Supreme Court accepted the admission from the government that the government can modify to be more respectful of religious liberty,” said Becket attorney Stephanie Barclay at the time.

The high court justices instructed both parties to work out a compromise that would eliminate any faith-based concerns.

Antifa Plans To Burn Flags And Desecrate Graves In Gettysburg

Gettysburg, in Pennsylvania, was the scene of a great battle in 1863 between soldiers of the Union and the Confederacy, a battle that
is cited as a turning point in the Civil War. It is  a major national attraction, especially at Independence Day.

The left-wing black-clad paid Antifa anarchists plan to burn flags and desecrate graves to Gettysburg.  There are only a few Confederate graves at Gettysburg, most are Union graves.

The anti-history crowd responsible for the eradication of Civil War statues and monuments around the country is destroying tourism in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Much of the original Gettysburg battlefield is preserved and maintained by the National Park Service. The Gettysburg History Museum, a separate entity, is also a well-frequented attraction. Or it was.  And it’s the Museum that’s publicly lamenting the damage they claim is caused by extreme revisionists.

For their refusal to surrender fact to immature and insecure emotion, the museum, along with the battlefield will be subjected to militant anti-history protests planned by Antifa groups on the anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. These Antifa groups plan to burn Confederate battle flags and desecrate graves.  Legalinsurrection


Gettysburg National Cemetery is the final resting place for more than 3,500 Union soldiers killed in the Battle of Gettysburg, a Union victory often cited as a turning point in the Civil War. Numerous monuments stand in both the cemetery and battlefield to commemorate the Union and Confederate troops who fought there. At the cemetery’s dedication on November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln rose to deliver “a few appropriate remarks,” now known as the Gettysburg Address…

After the battle, bodies lay scattered throughout Gettysburg’s farmlands. Burial work commenced quickly as fears of epidemic rose.  The dead were hastily buried in shallow graves on the battlefield, crudely identified by pencil writing on wooden boards. Rain and wind began eroding the impromptu graves, and Gettysburg’s citizens called for the creation of a soldiers’ cemetery for the proper burial of the Union dead.

With the support of the Pennsylvania Governor, a committee formed to select an appropriate site for the cemetery and oversee the interment of Union remains.  The site chosen encompassed the hill from which the Union center repulsed Pickett’s Charge.  State-appropriated funds purchased the property, and the reburial process began four months after the battle on October 27, 1863.

Confederate burials did not receive placement in the national cemetery.  Efforts in the 1870s by Southern veterans’ societies eventually relocated 3,200 Confederate remains to cemeteries in Virginia, Georgia, and the Carolinas, such as Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia. A few Confederates do remain interred at Gettysburg National Cemetery.  nps.gov – Gettysburg National Cemetery

HS Asst Principal Screams At Teen Pro-Life Activists, Goes Completely Insane

This Assistant Principal’s behavior is unacceptable!

Video:  Assistant Principal of a Top Ranked School Yells at Students  (Content warning: Rough language)

If you want a perfect example of an angry, childish liberal, look no further than this video.

A brother-and-sister team, 16-year-old Conner Haines and his 19-year-old sister Lauren, recently stood on the corner sidewalk outside of a public high school in Downington, Pennsylvania, with signs and pamphlets spreading a pro-life message and preaching the tenets of Christianity to cars passing through the intersection.

Conner has his phone on record as STEM Academy’s assistant principal, Zach Ruff, comes storming up to the scene. He is clearly agitated and asks them to move off of school property. They refuse and inform Ruff they are in a public space and that really caused his anger to boil.

For 18 minutes, Ruff stood in front of the Haines to block their signs as he waved to students and parents driving off. But he continually engaged with them and his actions became stranger and increasingly outlandish.

At one point, Conner tells him that unborn babies are the image bearers of God, to which Ruff responds, “You can go to hell where they are, too,” pointing at the anti-abortion signs.

Ruff then unloads, telling them there hasn’t been a single pregnancy in the school for five years and no one has had an abortion under his watch.

“These children are being murdered,” Conner insisted.

“They’re not children, they’re cells,” Ruff exploded, reminding them they are at a science-based school. “Go home!”

Ruff accused the teens of harassing him, although he was the one that approached aggressively. But when Ruff was proselytized to by Conner, that’s when he really came unhinged:

Listen here son, all right, I’m as gay as the day is long and twice as sunny. I don’t give a f*** what you think Jesus tells me and what I should and should not be doing.”  TruthRevolt


Patricia McGlone, director of public information for the Downingtown School District, told WCAU that Ruff will remain on leave pending a formal investigation and that parents will have the opportunity to express their concerns.

“We do not condone or support the conduct expressed in the video and are deeply disappointed that this incident occurred,” the school’s statement read. “His conduct does not represent the values of the school district or the respect we expect our employees to show for the civil rights of others.” TheBlaze

PA Boyertown School District To Teenage Boy: Undress In Front Of Girls And Make It ‘Natural’

Neither the school district or school informed parents that it permitted students of one sex to use the locker rooms and bathrooms of students of the opposite sex.

The male student who complained was offered “reasonable and appropriate alternatives“.  The boy’s parents did not accept the alternatives.

In an unbelievable invasion of privacy, a Pennsylvania school district told a teenage boy that if a teenage girl is in the locker room with him, he should “tolerate” undressing in front of her and make it as “natural” as possible.

The boy, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom and Independence Law Center (ILC), is filing suit against the Boyertown Area School District, its superintendent, and the principal and assistant principal of Boyertown Area High School, accusing them of shaming him, violating his personal privacy, and sexually harassing him.

At the end of October 2016, the lawsuit alleges, the boy began changing in the locker room for physical education class. He was standing in his underwear about to put on his gym clothes when he realized there was a member of the opposite sex changing with him in the locker room, only wearing shorts and a bra.

The boy and several classmates reported the incident to the assistant principal, Dr. E. Wayne Foley. The lawsuit asserts, “Dr. Foley indicated that the legality was up in the air but that students who mentally identify themselves with the opposite sex could choose the locker room and bathroom to use, and physical sex did not matter.”

When the boy asked if there was anything that could be done to protect him from the situation, Foley told him to “tolerate” it and make it as “natural” as he possibly could, according to the lawsuit. Foley allegedly reiterated that the boy should make it “natural” as the boy exited.  DailyWire

Snowplow Convoy Escorts Pa. Toddler To Hospital

A 23-month old toddler was escorted during Tuesday’s snow storm nearly 90 miles by a convoy of plows, the Pennsylvania National Guard, the State Police and emergency vehicles to reach Geisinger Children’s Hospital in Danville, Pa. for an ’emergency medical procedure’,

Bentley Gingerlowski was born with a rare congenital heart defect, and a low platelet condition caused internal bleeding at the height of Tuesday’s blizzard, said his mother, Nicole Gingerlowski.

His parents initially took Bentley to a hospital in East Stroudsburg after he started coughing up blood early Tuesday. However, he needed to transfer to Geisinger’s Janet Weis Children’s Hospital in Danville to see his specialist and get the treatment he needed, she said. MCall

State troopers joined forces with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, Pennsylvania National Guard and Suburban EMS to ensure he reached the Geisinger Children’s Hospital in Danville safely.

PA State Police wrote on Facebook that the child needed an ’emergency medical procedure’, and posted: ‘The snow doesn’t stop us!’

The mother of the boy, who was born prematurely with a serious heart defect, said he would have died if he was not moved.

He had been at Pocono Medical Centre, which was not equipped to best help the critical pediatric patient.

She told NBC10: ‘This hospital made sure to do everything they could to make sure our son got to his specialist to make sure to get him his best care.’..

State governor Tom Wolf said the child had arrived safely, telling Pix11: ‘The National Guard followed up to make sure that if anything happened, they could help.’ DailyMail

Hospital Update

Target Sues Heroes Who Saved Girl In Stabbing Inside Store

Michael Turner outside Target store.
Michael Turner outside Target store.

Michael Turner, Jobe Wright, Roland Smith, and Tyreek Walker were outside a Target store in Pittsburgh, Penn.  Leon Wall (41), a mentally ill homeless man stabbed Jobe Wright in a random attack. Leon Walls went inside the Target store.  Michael Turner and his three friends followed in an effort to hold Leon until police arrived.

Once Walls went inside the Pittsburgh-area store, Turner and his friends – Wright, the stabbing victim, Roland Smith, and Tyreek Walker – immediately followed in an effort to hold him until police arrived. But, unfortunately, he’d already grabbed a 16-year-old girl named Allison Meadows. Initially, he’d only issued a verbal threat, but things took a turn for the worse when he allegedly stabbed the young girl twice.

“We were looking for him so I could call the police on him, because he stabbed my friend,” Turner explained. “That’s why we were trying to catch this guy, because he stabbed someone for no reason.”Inquisitr

Turner and his friends immediately attacked Walls to save the young girl from further injury.  Allison Meadows father, “I thank him.  I thank him every time I see him.”  Allison Meadows father is suing Target for adequate security in the store.

Target is suing Michael Turner and his friends.

But Target is suing Turner and others claiming they brought an outside altercation with Walls, just prior to the stabbing, into the store and that none of it would have happened except for that altercation.

Attorney Todd Hollis says he will represent Turner.

“Target should be ashamed of themselves,” says Hollis. “Here, this gentleman acts courageously to save the life of a young lady who can’t protect herself. Target doesn’t have adequate security in the building and this man risks his life, and instead of a thank you, he gets slapped with a lawsuit. Mr. Turner can’t afford a lawsuit, and I can’t afford to turn my back on Mr. Turner.” Pittsburgh cbslocal

Leon Walls Sentenced – Judge critical of Target

Leon Walls was sentenced to 10 to 20 years for his role in an East Liberty Target stabbing in 2013…

The judge was also critical of Target’s naming Michael Turner as a defendant in a lawsuit claiming he helped cause the attack by bringing the encounter with Walls into the store from outside.

Judge McDaniel said Turner and others helped save the teenaged stabbing victim’s life and are heroes in her eyes.  The judge said she thinks Target went after the “heroes” to make the victims back down from their own lawsuit against the store.  Pittsburgh cbslocal

Lebanon, PA School District Holds Staff Training, Joins Prayer Service At Islamic Mosque

Dozens of teachers and administrators in Pennsylvania’s Lebanon School District recently attended a taxpayer-funded in-service workshop at a local mosque to learn about Islam and Arabic culture.


Separation of church and state?  Next week are they visiting St Anthony’s Coptic Church?  Usually attendance is required at employee in-service workshops.

About 50 staffers from the district attended an in-service workshop Monday led by former district Arabic translator Mohamed Omar, who “took time off from his new job as a case worker for the Department of Human Services in Philadelphia to share his knowledge of Islam with the staff, which included Superintendent Marianne Bartley and several other administrators,” the Lebanon Daily News reports.

The workshop started off at the high school where Omar discussed the differences and similarities between the education systems in the U.S. and Arab countries. Afterward, they headed to the nearby Lebanon Valley Mosque to delve into the Islamic religion and join a prayer service with the congregation, according to the news site. eagnews

Pennsylvania Students Suspended for Tweeting Criticism Over Students Wearing Chick-fil-A T-shirts

school desks photoIn Pennsylvania an Allentown area school suspended 15 students for using Twitter during school hours after two classmates wore Chick-fil-A shirts during a Gay-Straight Alliance event, parents and students said.

Last week, the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance encouraged students to wear different colored shirts each day to raise awareness of issues such as teen suicide and disabilities, said senior Erin Snyder, 18. For last Friday, the club encouraged students to wear rainbow colored shirts in support of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender issues.

During the high school’s televised announcements that morning, two students on the broadcast wore Chick-fil-A T-shirts, Snyder said. The students didn’t say anything about the Gay-Straight Alliance or the school’s LGBT community, but she believes they knew what they were doing.

The appearance of the t-shirts started a flurry of harassment and obscene tweets from students during school time. Continue reading “Pennsylvania Students Suspended for Tweeting Criticism Over Students Wearing Chick-fil-A T-shirts”
