Obama initiative to help black males

The President is rightfully turning his attention to helping black males

POTUS initiative

While there are many possible directions to go, the easiest and best way is simple:

Promote Marriage!

The effects of Marriage on Health

Marriage impact on wealth

Why marriage makes people happy

Why children need married parents

Don't ignore collapse of family

So job skills yes, educational opportunities yes, nutrition training yes, mentoring yes, government programs yes,  anything else good yes but don't skip over the most obvious and important factor in strengthing black men, black America, and Americans in general.

A strong nuclear family that stays together.

Atheism, the new Gay?

Don't take this as a indication of surrender, but I am realistic that the movement against gay rights in general and gay marriage currently  is losing big time right now.  Not only have those in the gay rights organizations, the Democratic party, and especially the media defined the terms of the debate favorable to them, they're well on their way to establishing that the whole issue of the gay lifestyle is BEYOND civil debate.  To criticize a homosexual's lifestyle is the equivalent of being a racist in their mind.  It's fine for you to disagree, but keep it to yourself, and don't take any actions what so ever that would exercise your firmly held beliefs, no matter how traditional, genuine, or positively motivated.
I will continue to engage and hopefully be a part of the solution in this, and one way to do that, is to ask the gay rights supporters, are you THAT SPECIAL?

I've heard, some actually say, that gay rights is the last major civil rights issue.  They believe that once  Lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender rights are secured, America's march toward true equality is done! 

*cue the music*
Hold up! Wait a minute! Let me put some reality in it!

Here comes Bill Maher and others:

Atheism will be the new Gay marriage

You might think that atheists already have equal rights, and there's no discrimination against them; Especially the world, the media, and general society being so secular and hedonistic.  But you might not understand.

Similar to a person being gay and in the closet.  Most atheists keep their beliefs and lifestyle to themselves and blend in with believers who rarely if ever practice their faith.  But understand an out and proud atheist would really disturb our normal world view and daily routine.  It's one thing to deal with normal people who aren't "religious", but it's  totally different with a real atheist.

Every time we talk about religion, even in a passing way, we are offending them.
Every time there is a prayer, no matter how general and non-denominational we are offending them.
Our motto, our money, our pledge of allegiance, our weddings, our funerals, all attack their belief system.

You might say, yeah but we don't force them to join in. They have freedom to believe what they want.
But just like with the gay rights crowd, they don't simply want tolerance to be left alone.  They want full equality to be who they are, and for society to stop discriminating against them.  They will demand that society change thousands of years of doing things one way, in order to respect the diversity of non-believers.  Sound familiar?  We will have to change our language, so as to not offend them.  Sound familiar?

The gay rights crowd has assaulted the idea that we the people both in civil society and through our government have the right to define for ourselves what's good and bad. What's right and wrong.  But they have done so specifically for themselves.  Not for the polygamists.  Not for those who want to engage in incest. And  Not for the atheist. 

By the way, there are even more groups.  What about  naturalism?
We're all born naked without clothes.  No debate.  Some people only feel themselves without clothes.
Why should society discriminate against them when they're born that way?

I say all of this to say two things.

1.  Beware of the gay rights crowd pointing to arguably even worse changes, that make the gay rights movement seem normal.  By the way, it's a close call for me which one is more objectionable an open homosexual or an open atheist.  I think the atheist is worst. I think.

2.  At some point, we have to draw a line, and stand up for our right both in civil society and we the people through our laws,  to debate and define what's right and wrong, good and bad, accepted and taboo.  Or eventually,  we won't have any society.  Hopefully, we can agree on that.  That we have to draw a line SOMEWHERE.

 Once we do agree, I say we draw the line, right now.  Using logic and common sense.

 One man plus One woman is the only relationship that can magically create new human life.  This relationship deserves special preferences in law and in cultural mores that venerate the relationship above all others.   For our future's sake, we should be trying to find ways to make male-female relationships more special, more exclusive and more responsible.  This means firmly reestablishing the norm that being heterosexual is better, good, right, and normal.

 The health of our society depends on it.

The new Craig's List: taboo issue debates from the left and the right

These are issues that deserve to be debated in civil society, the media, or even Congress but aren't because one side bullies the other into silence or because of political correctness.
This will be a legitimate list without any bias. However, it will not be a bogus list of fringe ideas.

We can add to this list as need be.

The new Craig's list

Should heterosexual relationships have legal and social preference over homosexual relationships due to their unique ability to procreate?

Should the death penalty be available for all first degree murders? should the death penalty be available for heinous non-fatal cases like child rapists?

Can't patriotic Americans hate the war (any war you disagree with), and hate the troops prosecuting the war?  Wouldn't it be patriotic to support defunding the war, and loving the troops that refuse to fight?

Are races all equal, if no matter what factors are controlled, whites do better than blacks on academic tests? If not, does it make a difference?

Are some people born gay, some choose to be gay, some predisposed but develop based on experience?  Is there a linear gay/straight binary choice or are we all on a continuum?

Are religious people mentally weaker than agnostics and atheists?  Is something fundamentally wrong and missing from atheists?

Should we discuss the foods that others eat worldwide that we find disgusting and taboo in some cases? and vice versa about what we eat?

Are men and women truly equal? If so, are we going to eliminate all gender distinctions that benefit one or the other both legally and culturally (for example men proposing to women, women coaching nfl teams, men having choice to be homemakers or career with no judgement, etc)

If abortion is a woman's choice, shouldn't she be totally responsible and  the man not be responsible for child under certain circumstances?

Why do women who want to be pregnant get to talk about  and have the fetus referred to as "her baby" and women who have abortions don't get asked about "aborting your baby"?

Anonymous Courageous NFL player

think Russell Wilson:

Due to the unfortunate circumstances of our society, I am forced by my conscience to make this statement on gay players and the NFL.  The fact is there have always been gay NFL players.  While many have had to keep that information about themselves to themselves, and have had to suffer some uncomfortable atmospheres, for the most part they've been allowed to do their jobs just as anyone else.  In recent years, the NFL and numerous individual players have made a concerted effort to make football a welcome place for all types of diversity.   But today I must stand up to say the effort to include openly gay players has gone astray into bullying those with traditional views of sexual mores into silence. And that is wrong and must change.

I am a loving person.  I accept all players of goodwill.   My view is that a person's private life has no bearing on their ability to play football.  So I choose to focus just on that: football.  I have kept quiet my personal beliefs that it is bad to promote homosexuality as a good lifestyle for young men.  I believe science and history support my contentions.  My values are as much apart of me as apparently being gay is apart of Michael Sam.  Except his view and "who he is"  is being celebrated almost without criticism throughout the media, the NFL, and even the White House.  While "who I am" is being attacked, ignored, and denigrated with impunity. 

Many have said to me, just leave Michael Sam alone, this is just about "football".  Yet, they then demand that I verbally support his announcement, and welcome his presence in the league without any questions.  For the record, if my team drafts him, and he can help our team I welcome him 100%. As it should be in America. 

I want young men watching us to grow up, work hard, be responsible, marry a young lady and start a family.  Anything other than that is bad. That's my personal view.  If he gets to promote his view, why shouldn't I get the same chance to promote my view.  I haven't heard one person associated with the NFL or the main stream media promote this view.  In the past few decades, we have focused so much on being good dads without mentioning, the best way to be a good dad is to be a good husband to your child's mother, and that should start before you're a father in the first place.  The acceptance of alternative lifestyles and families has progressed so far that a normal nuclear family is now the exception and no longer the rule.  Celebrating an athlete being openly gay is simply the next extension of this degradation in our culture.

I don't demand that you agree with me.  I'm simply asking you to stop trying to bully me and the millions who agree with me into silence and repudiation of our lifestyle.   Please invite myself and the countless others who have love in their heart of all mankind to present their views on all the various media platforms.

I reject any personal attacks on Michael Sam or myself.  This should be about football.  But if you insist that it be about his sexuality, then I insist that you be respectful of all legitimate viewpoints.

Thank you.
