Parents who indoctrinate their children with climate change alarmism

with 11 comments

Parents have always indoctrinated their children with their stupid religious beliefs, and as I’ve stated many times, climate change alarmism is a religion like Christianity and Islam, so it’s not very surprising.

Anyone who has sent their own kids to religious school has no call to criticize climate change alarmists for doing something similar. It would be the pot calling the kettle black.

What happened to the Asian Orthodox Jew?

with 37 comments

It occurred to me today that it has been more than a year and a half since I last saw the Asian Orthodox Jew. What happened to him? Did he find a better job (so we no longer cross paths)? Did he renounce Judaism because the food tastes so bad?

Now, all I see are pasty-white Orthodox. The ultra-Orthodox really need to recruit more Jews of Color so that Haredi Judaism can benefit from diversity.

Lion was right about percent of U.S. population that’s Jewish

with 45 comments

I’ve previously written that I estimated that 5% of the white population of the United States is Jewish enough to make Aliyah to Israel (which explains why there are so many people with Jewish ancestry in positions of power, because the percent of Americans who are Jews is higher than normally estimated).

This article about Jewish DNA backs me up. “3.5% observed in DNA test-takers living in the USA” are at least 25% Ashkenazi Jewish according to DNA tests.

Given that the USA is 69% non-Hispanic white, 3.5% divided by 0.69 comes out to 5.1%. Just as I estimated!

And this doesn’t even count Sephardic Jews.

Is lab-made dairy parve?

The first thing I thought when I read this NY Times article, was whether lab-made dairy is parve and can Orthodox Jews can finally enjoy a cheeseburger and stop having to deal with having two sets of dishes?

And what about vegans?

Primitive tribe converts Christian missionary to atheism

Frau Katze wrote in a comment:

Supernatural forces: if anything, we are hard wired to believe them. When was the last time any missionary anywhere met a remote tribe who proceeded to lecture the missionaries because this was an atheist tribe?

Well, it happened!

[Dan Everett] travelled to the Amazon in the 70s to bring the tribe “the joy of faith” only to discover that they were a deeply contented people. In fact they seemed far better contented than he was.

Tribe members asked the missionary whether he had seen or experienced any of the things he was telling them about. He had to admit that he hadn’t; that he was simply passing things onto them that were told to him by people who hadn’t seen or experienced them either.

According to The New Yorker:

He threw himself into missionary work, translating the Book of Luke into Pirahã and reading it to tribe members. His zeal soon dissipated, however. Convinced that the Pirahã assigned no spiritual meaning to the Bible, Everett finally admitted that he did not, either. He declared himself an atheist, and spent his time tending house and studying linguistics.

Liberal lies, conservative lies

I saw a tweet (which I lost so I can’t repost here) which said something to the effect that people become red-pilled or alt-right because they learn the truth about a big lie perpetuated by the liberal fakestream media.

I agree with that, but it then occurred to me that this runs in both directions. Perhaps one of the major things pushing millennials away from conservatism is that they discovered the truth of the big conservative lie, that the Bible is really a bunch of hogwash.

I can hear people insisting that belief in the Bible isn’t officially a part of conservatism, but culturally it is. According to a recent Pew survey, 70% of white Republicans “believe in God as described in the Bible” compared to only 32% of white Democrats.

Judaism is the world’s whitest major religion

Christianity is thought of as being a white religion, but if you look at the actual data on who practices Christianity, it doesn’t look so white.

While yes, the United States has the largest Christian population, a pretty large percentage of U.S. Christians are black and Latino. After the United States, the countries with the largest Christian populations, in declining order, are Brazil, Mexico, the Philippines and Nigeria. None of those countries are very white.

So surprisingly, Judaism is actually the world’s whitest major religion. Of the three major Jewish ethnicities, Ashkenazi are very white, the Sephardic are as dark as Spanish and Italians, and the Mizrahi are of similar ethnicity as Jesus, the founder of Christianity, would have been.

I say “major religion,” because the minor religion of Asatru is definitely whiter the Judaism.

Pew agrees, even in the U.S., Judaism is whiter than any other religion: https://www.pewforum.org/religious-landscape-study/racial-and-ethnic-composition/

Looks like other people independently came up with the same idea.

Catholicism’s gay priest problem

Authorities solemnly tell us that gays are no more likely to sexually abuse children than heterosexuals, but then we look at the Catholic Church, and you hardly ever hear about heterosexual priests taking advantage of girls, it’s always about the homosexual male priests abusing boys.

(1) Heterosexual priests are more likely to have joined the clergy for the right reason, because they feel the calling of the Holy Spirit, and therefore they take their vows more seriously. But the gays usually join the clergy for the wrong reason, because it gives them a socially acceptable (within the Catholic community) reason for not being interested in girls. And then they get cloistered with a bunch of other gays, and gay sex inevitably happens.

(2) Catholicism also forbids porn and masturbation. This is unfortunate. If the gay priests were jacking off to gay porn, then they’d satiate themselves that way and wouldn’t succumb to the urge to molest Catholic boys.

The only solution for Catholicism is to abolish this celibacy nonsense and allow priests to marry. (I have no idea if this is religiously viable.)
