It’s July 4: What are we really celebrating?

Editor’s note: This is a repost of a  letter to the editor of the Central Kentucky News Journal that I posted on the old version of Free Kentucky News back in 2003. Sadly, it’s as relevant now as then…

The Fourth is coming, let’s list all the things we’ll get to celebrate.

Our fully-stocked shelves in the food and department stores so that we stay well fed and entertained and don’t get too upset or ask any inappropriate questions. Any good farmer will keep his livestock well fed and contented so they stay in the fence.

The drug war, it costs billions, makes police work more dangerous, fills our prisons with more prisoners per capita than most other countries, including many third world police states, allows law enforcement agencies to seize property without so much as a hearing and only proves once again that prohibition doesn’t work and of course keeps billions flowing through our economy via a global black market.

The IRS, that steals our money before it reaches our hands, makes many of those who actually pay taxes work till May of each year to cover this ‘progressive income tax’ that is a product of the ‘Communist Manifesto,’ requires you to have a number to get a job, whose agents can harass you, fine you, lien your property, imprison you, cause you to produce personal and business documents at only their demand, murder you, all without the real warrants required by the U.S. Constitution.

The former Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, now under the ‘Justus’ Dept., an agency whose members have not been made to pay for firing fully automatic weapons into a building full of women and children during a raid in the early 90s, in the name of impressing the U.S. Congress so they could get a budget increase. A raid that resulted in what has since been proven to be the murder of 80 plus people, including 17 children, whose only crime was being ‘non-mainstream’ for there were never any drugs, automatic weapons or real evidence of ‘child abuse’ found, two ‘abuses of the laws’ of which the BATF never had in its purview.

Numbers on our vehicles so we’re easier to track and find in case we break one of our tens-of-thousands-plus laws and statutes.

Little pieces of plastic with those bad photos that give us permission to drive our own vehicles down the ‘public’ highways after we passed a test at age 16 and are only required to get them updated, and not be retested even though they’re allegedly for our ‘safety,’ every four years so the state has a current photo of us and our address in case they want to come see us.

The ‘environmentalists’ whose real goal is a more socialist America with their lawsuits and legislation that destroy homes, livelihoods, and entire communities and who have so brainwashed our society that our local college held a ‘conference’ where no dissenting speakers were invited to refute the long-disproved propaganda that was disseminated to the young minds who got ‘college credit’ for attending and of course was ‘covered’ by the local ‘newspaper’ as if all that was said by the ‘official’ speakers was gospel and no one that spoke in opposition was even worth mentioning.

The gun laws of several large metropolitan areas and some states that can put you in prison for defending yourself and your property.

A $200 ‘license’ to own fully-automatic weapons, the Militia weapons the Second Amendment is really about, not your deer rifle or duck gun, while the Iraqis were smart enough to riot in the streets after our forces tried to seize their personal Kalashnikovs.

Road blocks for our ‘safety’ that are reminiscent of those old black and white films about the Nazis where our modern Nazis get to ask us for our ‘papers.’

All the ‘Christians’ who forfeit the responsibility they are born to and wait lazily to get beamed up without wondering how much the Devil accomplishes every day they sit apathetically in their pews and mindlessly in front of their televisions.

Our great entertainment and news media industries that use the greatest weapon ever designed by man to keep the sheeple stupid and pacified.

All the preachers who tell their congregations, because it’s what they’re paid to say, that we must faithfully and blindly ‘render unto Caesar’ when we have no Caesar.

Our ancestors who shouted ‘no King but King Jesus’ 200 years ago as their preachers led them into battle to found the greatest nation state, now empire, that has ever existed in known human history with a preamble to a Constitution that all school children learn says ‘Of the People, by the People, and for the People,’ not ‘Of Caesar, by Caesar, for Caesar.’

All the freedoms that our parents, grandparents, great and great-great grandparents allowed to slip from their grasp so we can watch the parade go down Main Street like the citizens in that 1970s mini series ‘Amerika‘ and pretend that the children watching and participating really have a future that’s worth living for or fighting for.

The actual text:

A VISITOR FROM THE PAST
By Thelen Paulk

I had a dream the other night, I didn’t understand.
A figure walking through the mist, with a flintlock in his hand.
His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by my bed.
He took off his three-cornered hat, and speaking low, he said:

“We fought a revolution, to secure our liberty.
We wrote the Constitution, as a shield from tyranny.
For future generations, this legacy we gave.
In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

“The freedom we secured for you, we hoped you’d always keep.
But tyrants labored endlessly while your parents were asleep.
Your freedom gone, your courage lost, you’re no more than a slave.
In this, the land of the free and home of the brave.

“You buy permits to travel, and permits to own a gun,
Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one.
On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent.
Although you have no voice in choosing, how the money’s spent.

“Your children must attend a school that doesn’t educate.
Your Christian values can’t be taught, according to the state.
You read about the current news, in a regulated press.
You pay a tax you do not owe, to please the I.R.S.

“Your money is no longer made of Silver or of Gold.
You trade your wealth for paper, so your life can be controlled.
You pay for crimes that make our Nation, turn from God in shame.
You’ve taken Satan’s number, as you’ve traded in your name.

“You’ve given government control, to those who do you harm,
So they can padlock churches, and steal the family farm,
And keep our country deep in debt, put men of God in jail,
Harass your fellow countrymen, while corrupted courts prevail.

“Your public servants don’t uphold the solemn oath they’ve sworn.
Your daughters visit doctors, so their children won’t be born.
Your leaders ship artillery, and guns to foreign shores,
And send your sons to slaughter, fighting other people’s wars.

“Can you regain the freedom for which we fought and died?
Or don’t you have the courage, or the faith to stand with pride?
Are there no more values for which you’ll fight to save?
Or do you wish your children, to live in fear and be a slave?

“People of the Republic, arise and take a stand!
Defend the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land!
Preserve our Great Republic, and GOD-Given Right!
And pray to GOD, to keep the torch of Freedom burning bright!”

As I awoke he vanished, in the mist from whence he came.
His words were true, we are not Free, we have ourselves to blame.
For even now as tyrants, trample each GOD-Given Right,
We only watch and tremble, too afraid to stand and fight.

If he stood by your bedside, in a dream, while you’re asleep,
And wonders what remains of our Rights he fought to keep,
What would be your answer, if he called out from the grave:
“IS THIS STILL THE LAND OF THE FREE AND HOME OF THE BRAVE???”

 

What does ‘We the People’ actually mean?

It means we are responsible…

We have a representative republic, guaranteed to every state, not a democracy.

We have a Bill of Rights that acknowledges rights we are born with, not granted or created by any government.

We vote with the knowledge that voting is the most violent act anyone can participate in because voting is electing someone to hire someone to stick a government gun in our neighbors’ faces and force our version of reality on them at the threat of their very lives.

We stand ready to protect our Liberty and the Liberty of our neighbors, not destroy it, via any version of authoritarianism, of any age or place.

We are prepared with knowledge and force of arms to make war against and kill if necessary those who would destroy our Bill of Rights whether they represent domestic or foreign enemies.

We do not lie to ourselves, our families, our friends, our business associates, our descendants, our enemies, about these things and do not EVER tolerate those who would have us do so.

If the troops were fighting for our freedom they’d all be here.

The only real reason for the militia

What is a man, really?

And something else we need to re-learn:

FK – If you can’t un-volunteer from something you volunteered for what are you?

With more reasons why:

FK – The average dumbass doesn’t have anything to say. They lack the backbone or the brain to be real human beings. That’s why the elites consider us all to be livestock.

Russia is ran by a dictatorship so they’re probably a lot smarter about the money they spend. We have too many lobbyists and corporate constituents to enrich with the ‘black budget.’

The IRA, a socialist group, has been seeking independence from England for centuries, so they can run the tyranny themselves.

We need to demand Liberty, not false freedom.

SJW Laci Green takes the Red Pill?

FK – Let’s see, on the one hand you acknowledge they only want our capitulation then you claim we need ‘dialogue’ with those who have proven over multiple decades they will keep lying to our faces and keep expecting us to pretend they’re not lying when they know full well we know they’re lying.

Huh?

WE ARE AT WAR! Yes, some can be ‘red-pilled,’ many will have to be exterminated. Simple sad fact. We’ve had the net for 20 years now. It’s easy to learn how evil the twin evils of socialism and gun control are yet our domestic blood enemies, our greatest enemies, keep trying to shove both down our throats at the point of a govt. gun. Does this tell you anything?

The questions that matter are ‘Who is originating and funding the propaganda that spews out of the SJWs’ mouths and what is its real purpose, to destroy ‘the right'(those who wish to be free) or the ‘left'(those who wish to enslave everyone) or both?’

Her original vid:

FK – Waking up is a process. I’ve been doing it for 20 + years. Think ‘enlightenment’ without all the new agey horse crap. The fight for human liberty is the pinnacle of human endeavor.

Think the bumper sticker commies like that reads: ‘Question Authority’ then think ‘What does one do when authority refuses to be questioned?’ Protest? No, they’ve already refused to be questioned and protesters are being thrown in prison, which can happen here as is happening to those in Europe who dare to question why fundie ragheads(and think how indoctrinated you are in PC that you don’t like that description of those who adhere to an ideology that is completely antithetical to all western civilization, and feminists, supposedly stood for) are being imported in large numbers, put on welfare and allowed to breed.

Your generation is possibly the most indoctrinated in authoritarianism in modern history, surpassing even places like Cuba or the ‘former’ Soviet Union or even N. Korea. Simple fact.

You’ve been taught to hug the whales and the trees and the sexually degenerate and instantly fully hate anyone who questions these edicts, closing off your minds and ears to all reality. Simple fact.

I grew up during the ‘sexual revolution’ and it wasn’t. Human biology still demands much of the same insanity our so-called ‘morality’ always has. We’ve gone in the opposite direction for the last several years thanks to the ‘right’ and the ‘left’ so-called. Now it’s the ignorance of abstinence because of the fear of a sadistic god vs. the ignorance of calling obvious birth defects and mental illnesses ‘happy, healthy and normal.’ How absurd.

All politics is violence since all government is force hence voting is the most violent act anyone can participate in since you are electing someone to hire someone to stick a gun in your neighbor’s face and force your particular brand of human insanity down their throat at the point of a govt. gun.

If nothing else ‘free speech’ is telling others what they don’t want to hear and not being forced to lie in order to save their feelings or their particular system of authoritarianism. Personally I’m sick of all sides expecting me to lie for them.

What must be done – A manifesto of the ‘isms.’

The idea of ‘harmful speech’ is abhorrent to human Liberty since our Bill of Rights, the document that makes us exceptional, forces our governments to acknowledge the most basic right we posses: To fight back against and kill them when necessary.

Our nation was founded by ‘subjects of the King’ who killed their government’s employees to improve human Liberty. It is a process that history proves and is proving now will have to be repeated. Lose sight of that and you have the sad pathetic situation we have now.

If your generation ever grows up, and it seems unlikely, they should seek out those who taught them their ‘feelings’ are more important than human Liberty and drag them to whatever tree or light pole is handy and hang them until dead.

‘Social Justice’ is a commie/globalist phrase created to control your minds. It’s only really meaning, like ‘democracy,’ is another form of manipulation.

I think of what the ‘apostle’ Paul allegedly wrote about his education before his conversion which was loosely: “I count all I learned before as dung.”

Your education/indoctrination by the mainstream/govt. schools and news/entertainment media was mostly dung. And that’s mostly because of all the important stuff they hid from you. And it’s obviously a far greater crime than was committed on my generation.

We’ve had the net for 20 years. It’s easy to learn how evil the twin evils of socialism and gun control are yet our domestic blood enemies, our greatest enemies tell the same re-hashed lies and arrogantly expect us to pretend they’re not lying while shoving both of the aforementioned down our throats at the point of a govt. gun. How long does it take for you to catch on?

Once again my standard answer to such:

Let’s make amerika free again!

Are we ready for the outcome of voting for the lesser of two evils, and eventually getting more evil than we can handle?

Is there a militia force in your county yet? Why not? Are you afraid of the ‘m’ word that’s in the Second Amendment?

The patriot newbie guidebook

The Bill of Rights is what we’re fighting for.

Who’s our greatest enemy? Those who build the Trojan Horse or those who open the gate?

Nothing will get better until we stop worrying so much about the fundie ragheads and start rounding up and at the least deporting our real enemies, our domestic enemies.

So who or what is our real enemy? A tiny no. of fundies who manage to kill a few mush heads now and again or our own white home-grown “Liberal”(commie) trash that works relentlessly to disarm and thus fully enslave millions?

What will we do when a commie SCOTUS rules it’s OK for the “Liberal”(commie) trash, our real enemies, to demand we ‘turn them in?’ How many cowards will comply? Those are the questions that matter.

What’s an ‘illegal gun?’ Those two words are nowhere to be found in the Second Amendment. A right applied for is a privilege.

Was the last ‘mass shooting’ site a ‘gun free zone?” Why are commiefornia and others still ‘may issue’ states? Why do we seek ‘permission’ to exercise the most basic right any creature possesses, that of self defense?

If the Marxist mutt and other commie extremists that call themselves ‘liberal’ and ‘progressive’ tell us to surrender our weapons and thus our most basic right, they’ll find out what blood really is.

The most important ‘private property’ anyone owns is their own life, health, safety, and no one, anywhere, anytime has the ‘right’ to take that from them or deny them their most basic right, that of self defense.

We all get the elected public servants the brain dead sheeple deserve.

I’ll vote for the candidate that will bring the troops home, activate the militias, and re-invade and re-conquer commiefornia and the other commie enclaves on the left and East coasts.

They’re not ‘leftists,’ ‘liberal’ or ‘progressive.’ They’re communists/globalists. They want us disarmed so we can’t kill them when enough finally wake up to the necessity of doing so.

Our Liberty is dying because of our failure to hunt the “Liberal”(commie) and globalist trash to extinction.

What must be done – A manifesto of the ‘isms.’

Don’t understand my bad attitude? Start here.

Governments will always be able to get guns so we must always be better armed than them.

Act politically but prep for what history shows will have to be done. It’s way past time to prep for what will be required.

Rules for the militia

And once again, I’m proven right:

FK – Help? It needs a straight jacket.

What we have here is one insanity vs. another. As usual.

What to teach your kids

Trump as click bait, and other things…

What do Jews in Israel think about Jesus Christ the Messiah and God in the Flesh – YAHWEH

FK – If there is any justice in the universe the followers of the three insanities will end up in each others’ hells.

Here’re my questions: Do you know what ‘Reform Judaism‘ is? Why was ‘modern Israel’ founded by European Socialists? Why are most modern Jews secular Marxists?

Loving thy neighbor can be a great thing, unless they don’t love you and don’t mind being slaves to some govt. or god then they’ll readily vote for you to be enslaved along with them.

But these insanities were created when the sheeple had a Caesar to pay tribute to. We aren’t supposed to have that anymore. But sadly most are too brain dead to understand this.

No sacred cows, or a new global Bill of Rights

Commies are as commies vote, to kill those who don’t ‘agree’ with their slavery:

Jeff Rense & David Duke – Zionist Takeover of The 2016 Election

FK – After reading Kevin McAlister’s comment below it seems obvious that what I’ve felt about some of the Founders for some time is indeed true. They made a great leap forward, such a great leap that many today are obviously incapable of understanding much less valuing what they accomplished for us yet they were products of their time and monarchical culture whereby the elites made all the decisions and the unwashed masses were expected to know their place.

Washington was referred to as ‘his excellency’ during his term of office, our military still has an officer class that holds the power of life and death over the enlisted and the American flag flew over slavery for another 80 years until the blacks were elevated to another form of slavery and we were lowered to that same level by the results of a war that was waged over the power to tax as most are.

So it’s no surprise that our government, 200 plus years after its founding, still clings to many old world ways especially in the arena of foreign policy and war making though our empire is a far more humane colonizer than many of the past. Well, at least we don’t pull up outside a city’s gates and blatantly demand “Surrender or we’ll kill you all.” We just go to war for some excuse and kill millions for the false paradigm of democracy when the diplomats and spies and NGOs and corporate raiders et al fail to colonize by other means.

And on top of that we have, in a supposed free country. a group, ethnicity, race, religion, political organization whatever it really is, that we’re not allowed to question. This is preposterous to evil especially when considering that millions of ignorant mush heads think its OK because this tribe’s ancient tribal propaganda commands them to support them no matter what.

It’s a sickening horrifying situation. The ‘great deception’ has been with us for a long time. It’s nothing new.

Trump will do just as every U.S, president / Federal government has done. Make deals with foreign countries behind closed doors.  We peons do not get invited in these negotiation whether it be France, Haiti, Britain, Israel, Panama, China, Russia, Venezuela, Argentina, Guam, Puerto Rico, Japan, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, et cetera. Hell, we are not even provided with the minutes of the meetings. Seems like they could at least televise it along the same lines as what they do on C-Span. It’s all SO private, and yet they claim they are a representative government. We have no freaking idea exactly what they are saying with corporate leaders in say, Iran or Mongolia. We do not know what they are negotiating when they fly to Hong Kong or Taiwan to meet with their political counterparts. It is all hush hush, yet they claim to be representing us. Trump has said that he already has a team of his own picking to lead this international corporate brigade. Ok, who are they??  What is the plan and what will be negotiated behind closed doors in foreign countries? Can all Americans listen-in on these trade / political deals?  I am pretty sure I already know the answers to my questions.

I call them the unmentionables. In a free country there’s no such thing as a group whose motives cannot be questioned. When we have that we have a serious problem. We have a serious problem.

The Tea Party’s National Security Threat

Let’s rearrange the deck chairs

Haven’t watched this vid yet:

FK – I’d like to see/hear the entire speech by Avnery. I can’t find it on youtube.

How sad and pathetic that millions would be too scared to even watch this because of the multi-headed beast of the news/entertainment media and organized and clearly infiltrated religion that produces fear in the minds of the ignorant via key terms and phrases.

We’re going to have to fight our way to light at the end of the tunnel. Time to wake up and grow up.

Is their empire really crumbling?

FK – Nothing will get better until we become a nation of men again and develop the resolve to do what will be required. Too many are still in denial of this reality.

His vid on oil:

FK – Gas needs to be affordable.

Some other points that shouldn’t be ignored:

FK – The SCOTUS is NOT the final arbiter of our rights. WE ARE!

And I’d bet those sailors didn’t wander in, they were likely on a mission. They didn’t look like normal sailors to me.

 

DISTURBING – News In October ’15 Says Scientists Altered People’s Belief In God and Immigration

FK – What if they’re doing it so they can use it on ‘terrorists?’ If every ‘immigrant,’ coming into the country were ran through a machine that wiped their little brain housing groups of the desire to die for allah or whatever sadistic asshole they worship would that be a good thing?

‘Human beings’ or ‘homo sapiens,’ loosely defined, are biological robots. I’ve seen too much reality to not understand this. I’ve seen truck drivers who’ve spent decades addicted to ‘gettin’ the load,’ at the price of their health and families, and factory workers that show up day after day, year after year, decade after decade, putting screw A in hole B but you couldn’t engage them in a conversation about anything that actually matters if their lives depended on it.

Similarly ‘christians,’ of various versions, sub-versions and subversions waste their time in this world waiting for the world to end with no real conception that they hold personal responsibility for what happens around them. And it’s perfectly OK with them if billions, including those they claim to love, get burned alive in fire forever by their sadistic god. And they have the audacity, or rather ignorance, to call eternal slavery vs. eternal torture a ‘choice.’

Who or what is our biggest enemy?

Bill Nye FAILS on Abortion – Best Response

FK – (I posted this comment days ago and was really hoping he’d come back with some kind of response but he never did) The simple sad fact is that if abortion were banned completely there would still be black market or ‘back alley’ providers. A teenager going to a baby hacker because her ignorant parents have bronze age beliefs is not the same as me hiring a hit man to do away with a bad neighbor.

Abortion is a horribly nasty process and biological ‘life’ by whatever loose definition does begin at conception, or rather implantation. But what is ‘life’ and when does the ‘soul'(try finding a real definition for that one) enter the fertilized egg?

I don’t get to watch enough of your vids to know what version, sub-version or subversion of the ancient tribal propaganda you ascribe to so please try to explain why ‘Christians'(loosely defined) are so concerned over this issue? Are Catholics concerned that all those aborted babies will be burned alive in fire forever by their sadistic god if they don’t get to ‘christen’ them, which btw is not a symbolic act? Are protestants scared they won’t get to cajole the little kid into ‘gettin’ saved’ so he/she won’t be burned alive forever after dying in a car wreck on the way home from church after ‘saying “No” to Jesus at the alter call?

Maybe your slightly more intellectual version is among the minority and claims that all lost sinners will be simply burned up and killed or cast into outer darkness. But that is beside the point really. If the only reason we’re here is to prove to your god by whatever means that we’re worthy of being its eternal slaves then there’s really no reason to be here at all. A slave is someone who has no real ‘choice,’ especially when the ‘choice’ is slavery vs. torture for when some creature tells you “Be my good subject/slave or I’m going to kill and/or torture you(as the ancient tyrannical kings it was patterned after did to their subjects) then that creature considers you to be a slave.

It’s time to wake up and grow up cause nobody’s gonna get beamed up. We have the freedom we have, such as it is, because of that tiny minority in every generation that stood up and said “Hell no, we ain’t gonna do it that way anymore.” Often it was the ‘church’ of whatever type they were standing against. At least nowadays our western versions don’t burn heretics at the stake anymore though their middle-eastern cousins are a little more backwards.

The human race has a lot of growing up to do. We’re still a very primitive species and still exist in a very dark age. I don’t expect to be around long enough to see that change whether I die a ‘natural’ death or some other way or choose my own time for exit, which is and should be my right.

Maybe in the near future we can do what we should and provide every 14-year old male with a safe at the sperm bank and a vasectomy so this issue can be settled once and for all. But then too many ‘adults’ who still have the minds of children would object to such a simple solution.

I could go on and on with this, into what kind of ‘life’ the average aborted fetus would have anyway, would our country really be better off, what political party would really benefit, but that might all be too Earthly for your concerns…

Christians Placing Themselves Above All Other Americans

FK – Both ‘sides’ play this game but the commies started it. The ‘chrisitians’ as usual are only playing copy cat the result being that instead of fighting for real human Liberty they’re arguing over govt. granted ‘civil liberties’ that of course can be rescinded whenever whichever side lies their way into power decide they can.

It’s all such a sickening fiasco especially when one considers that our next prez will be some NWO RINO hack that mumbled out ‘Jesus’ a few times and claims to be for ‘god, country and the amerikan way.’

See comments on the next vid:

FK – I’ve known enough Tennessee good ol’ boys to happily give you permission to make fun of Kentuckians. A good portion of us fully deserve it.

Nepotism in any rural southern or midwestern area is a given. Most of these families have been here since the settlers and everybody is someone’s cousin. Ya’ll are probably related to algore. Study on that.

I don’t even know what party Davis is allegedly registered under. Not that it makes a lot of difference up here. We send ‘conservatives'(loosely defined) to the u.S. Congress but the commiecrats still control the legislature and on occasion we get a RINO governor.

Several years back I attended a ‘watermelon bust’ in western Kentucky hosted by a local bank. There was a gospel group on stage. I was told it was a ‘democrat’ event. This was during the klinton years. I found it very ironic. But most are too ignorant to understand all this considering the history not taught in our government indoctrination centers.

The point to all this is she took an Oath, on a Bible, to the u.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights and the Kentucky Constitution, which she swore to uphold. Those two latter documents are about protecting the rights of the individual and the common welfare, which doesn’t mean a govt. check. They were only partly based on the 3000-year-old tribal propaganda. Much to most of our ‘law’ comes from England and the Romans who ruled it before the ‘dark ages.’

As an elected ‘public servant’ she has to serve ‘all’ the public. Even though fudge packin’ isn’t mentioned in the Bill of Rights this is supposed to be a ‘free’ country and if two sufferers of the birth defect or mental illness or some combination thereof that is ‘homosexuality’ want to form a contract of some sort with one another they should be able to do so as long they aren’t forcing anyone else into it or forcing us all to lie about what it really is.

The real question is why is the govt. in the marriage license business? Money and control, plain and simple. I find it ironic that the commie homos are fighting for a ‘right’ which really amounts to a permission slip from Big Brother.

Mostly this is all about commie propaganda and distraction. The 2016 race for the now red house is another exercise in the quest for the idiot vote, as always.

FK – One insanity vs. another. We’re still a very primitive species and still exist in a very dark age.

Kim Davis on Gay Marriage License: Its A Heaven Or Hell Decision

FK – The crazies won’t be helped by the culture war:

Waking up is hard to do

Time for an update of Judaism

I’ve been grappling with Judaism for many years, from about the age of five, when I realized I was probably an atheist, and a lot before I realized I was a lesbian. My hostility towards religion has not been particularly reasoned. I considered (and still do) faith in a higher power to be a far-fetched idea, and that was pretty much all I had to say about religion.

All that changed completely about two years ago, when I got to know a genuine haredi family through the Havruta project – a family that became my second home, and my great love. A mother, father and seven children living in a two and a half bedroom apartment on the suburbs of Bnei Brak. Over the past two years, I’ve been spending at least half of my time in Bnei Brak, feeling comfortable driving down its alleyways as if they were those of Tel Aviv, haggling over a price in its stores and feeling at home. How do you get from Hazon Ish Street to Ha-Rav Kook? Easy, through Rabi Akiva.

Naturally, my friendship with religious Jews has led to quite a few heated arguments. Other than throwing plates at one another, we’ve done it all. We yelled, slammed doors, pulled hair – but it all ended with half a smile. I make the argument that Judaism is a chauvinistic and arcane religion, they give me some Yiddishkeit about a compassionate, divine and eternal religion. All glorious is the king’s daughter within the palace? Women are invalid as Halachic witnesses? A conversation with a woman is a waste of time and she belongs at the back of the bus? Forget it, they say in tune, Judaism is protective over women and elevates them above all. The thing that stands out most when talking to haredim is their lack of willingness to admit that Halacha laws, and their public, need an update.

FKWhatever ‘god’ is out there may be sick to death of ‘humans'(loosely defined) arguing over 3000-year-old tribal propaganda.

Waking up is hard to do

6 stabbed in Jerusalem gay pride parade

Victim of Jerusalem Pride Parade stabbing succumbs to wounds

FK – The human race is still completely and thoroughly insane. We are a very primitive species and still exist in a very dark age…
