Gay Pride event bans drag queens because it might offend the trannies:
An LGBT pride march in Scotland has banned “cis” drag queens from marching out of the fear that it could offend transgender people.
Free Pride Glasgow is scheduled to take place in August, and bills itself as an alternative to the city’s main Pride event, which has allegedly become too commercialized.
“It was felt by the group within the Trans/Non Binary Caucus that some drag performance, particularly cis drag, hinges on the social view of gender and making it into a joke, however transgender individuals do not feel as though their gender identity is a joke,” organizers said in a statement.
There comes a point where reason fails and the only appropriate response is laughter.

The German Church continues to plummet:
In the year 2015, more Catholics than ever have left the Church. As the Catholic Bishops' Conference reported on Friday, the number of people having left the Church has risen 22 percent within the last year to now 218,000. The number of baptisms has remained nearly the same, however, when compared to the previous year: 165,000. The number of new members whom the Church has received either by entrance or by a re-entrance, has further sunken. Taken together, this number – for the first time – is less than 10,000.
The Bishops' Conference did not say anything about the deeper causes for such developments. Its president, Archbishop Marx of Munich, was quoted as saying that these new statistics show “that Church is multi-faceted and has still had a missionary force, even though the high number of exits from the Church makes us painfully aware that we do not reach people with our message.” Archbishop Burger, of Freiburg, spoke of the “irritations caused by the new way of gathering the Church taxes by referring to the capital incomes – which was erroneously then interpreted by many as an 'increase of taxes.'” Originally, the Church tax [Kirchensteuer] was only gathered together with the other taxes, when the tax payer formally requested it. Now, since 1 January 2015, it happens automatically. When, at the end of 2014, the banks started to inform their members about this new procedure, the number of exits considerably increased in the Catholic Church as well as in the Protestant churches.
It's worth noting how much money is driving the German Church to push for changing Church teachings on divorce and remarriage at the upcoming Synod.

And finally, yesterday was the anniversary of the First Battle of Bull Run:


Historically accurate songs are often the best songs. I've been neglecting the blog recently due to my work with Return of Kings and my new day job which is in addition to my side hustles with Amazon. I'm tired but it's a good kind of tired. I feel like I have the strength of five gorillas.

  1. And so the Left continues to eat their own when they become a nuisance, the Trotskyites are hunted down, the Brownshirts are executed. Same old story.

    As to the Church in Germany. When you cease being a force of resistance against that which should be resisted, the secular culture, you lose all relevance. People would rather be at Burger King.

  2. "Victim" is the most coveted status among the Left. The problem with relying on your Victim status is that eventually some other group comes along and outranks you.
