Ron Moore, Complicit With the Feminist Propaganda Machine

Outlander (FB) - see this previous post.

Something that was already revealed with Deep Space 9 and nuBSG? He eidn't have to get involved with the TV adaptation of the novel, after all.

"Outlander" Is The Feminist Answer To "Game Of Thrones" — And Men Should Be Watching It
Outlander: It’s a great feminist adventure. I wish it were a little more of a cheesy romance. By Willa Paskin

Would Scots of that time really tolerate such a bossy woman? How sexist/misogynistic can these Scots be when they acquiesce to her bossiness? No response to her sass? Just some dumb men who are not verbally clever enough? What about responding with force? What, even those who are rough around the edges might adhere to some measure of "chivalry" in their treatment of women instead? Talk about undermining the case against men.

Look at the comments at the Buzzfeed article. Why waste time on engaging with them in "dialogue" instead of demolishing them with rhetoric, as Vox suggests?

So in connection with this novel/TV show when a feminist claims she wants respect for who she is, what she really wants is authority over men. It's not meritocracy.

Spiritual Leaders

Mere Comments: Men as Spiritual Leaders. Whether You Like It or Not.

Found the following yesterday. I don't think I read this when it was first published, but it resonates with what I have thought about worship being both "intellectual" and "sensual" but with the latter being ordered to the former.

Please Me, O Lord
S. M. Hutchens on the Roots of Romantic Worship

Nor do churches that may elect their own pastors without interference from the denominational intelligentsia favor the women that have been forced on mainline congregations. The Evangelical churches, in accordance with their tradition, can remain “merely feminized”: “soul-winning,” now in the sense of gravid with “seekers,” full of the warmings sought by Evangelicals, and marked by preaching and music that present no particular challenge to the mind or tastes of a child of ten—a child that in traditional cultures has not yet, as Leon Podles observes in The Church Impotent, left the society of women. The church feminized is not only the church demasculinized, but inevitably the church infantilized as well.

The excuse for this is that to “reach” people, the churches must operate on this level, but this becomes suspect when it appears that nothing deeper is available in these congregations for those who have for many years been “reached.”

Taylor Swift, "Ours"

Seems like there's always someone who disapproves
They'll judge it like they know about me and you
And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do
The jury's out, but my choice is you.

So don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
The stakes are high, the water's rough, but this love is ours

That is, "people gonna hate."

'Cause I love the gap between your teeth
And I love the riddles that you speak
And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored
'Cause my heart is yours

So is she writing about a bad boy and not heeding the advice of those warning her about him?

She hasn't released any new songs recently, guess she's working on a new album?

If you don't want to watch the entire video - put in an impossible situation because he can't refuse those who offered his hands, nor did he repeat the clarification given in previous pontificates that holding hands is not appropriate during the praying of the Our Father. His defenders will say that this was during a youth rally, not during a Mass, but the principle is the same. An inauthentic gesture of closeness and intimacy in order to mimic community and solidarity.
