Shall we Tolerate Islam?

This is your lucky day - a double header Sunday Sermonette, because sometimes one rant on a Sunday is not enough.

This is my response to the Pope (so-called Pope) and his recent assertions that there is no such thing as Islamic Terrorism...tell that to the mothers of their victims, your holiness...

Tolerance is an agreement to live in peace, not an agreement to be peaceful no matter the conduct of others.

There have been times throughout history when the West and Political Islam have been at peace, but some European leaders don't understand the nature of that peace. It's not absolute.
Tolerance is not a moral absolute; it is a peace treaty. Tolerance is a social norm because it allows different people to live side-by-side without cutting each other’s throats. It means that we accept that people may be different from us, in their customs, in their behavior, in their dress, in their sex lives, and that if this doesn’t directly affect our lives, it is none of our business. But the model of a peace treaty differs from the model of a moral precept in one simple way: the protection of a peace treaty only extends to those willing to abide by its terms. It is an agreement to live in peace, not an agreement to be peaceful no matter the conduct of others. A peace treaty is not a suicide pact.
I tend to go with a far simpler approach because I am a simple man. "Be polite and courteous (and tolerant) but have a plan to kill everyone you meet." - General James Mattis.

Unlike absolute moral precepts, treaties have remedies for breach. If one side has breached another’s rights, the injured party is no longer bound to respect the treaty rights of their assailant — and their response is not an identical violation of the rules, even if it looks superficially similar to the original breach. “Mommy, Timmy hit me back!” holds no more ethical weight among adults than it does among children. The Pope would do well to reassess his response to murderous savages but he's not the first Pope to be besotted with his own narcissistic awesomeness. 

Islam has an ugly track record that goes back to its very roots. It is a political system that uses arbitrary faith to enforce conformity and compliance (as the very meaning of its name suggests). In that, it shares common roots with totalitarian regimes - Maoist China, Stalinist Russia, and takes it one step farther by incorporating faith as a tenant of that mindset. It crushes the human soul, it stamps out all creative thought and it imparts all decision making to a small power elite coterie that "takes direction from Allah". Thus, the Imam's mutterings can not be questioned.

Studying the cause and effect of Political Islam is not a difficult undertaking. A trained chimp could get it. Somehow the progressive, elite, smug, self-satisfied, left doesn't get it. The 'homosexual marches supporting Islam' that we have seen in San Francisco are not unlike having Jews singing the Horst Wessel Song as they march into the ovens in Dachau. The Pope, a communist, is just as caught up in this love of Islam, but sitting on a massive pile of gold, surrounded by high walls and protected by an army of bodyguards, he has inoculated himself from the evil that is endemic in the Islamic system.

In the United States there is one law and it's not Sharia. Tolerance is an agreement to live in peace, not an agreement to be peaceful no matter the conduct of others.

Savage conduct (terrorism) needs to be met with absolute force and those who engage in this barbarity need to be obliterated from the earth for the sake of all who wish to live in peace.

RADM Grace Hopper USN (ret)

Spoiled, entitled, elitist, sexist, racist, xenophobic students at Yale University are working full time to try and delegitimize  and marginalize gender and racial choice on campus. I for one am offended. This is your Sunday Sermonette

What ever happened to "my body-my choice". If you want to be black, or Asian, it should be your right to become that in the same way as people transition back and forth in their gender identification. I thought that people who could afford to pay $75K per year for a quality education would be more enlightened, but apparently not. They will make piss poor members of the Illuminati, should they ever be inducted. They're clearly not Skull and Bones material.

Bigots at Yale University recently made this statement regarding the new RADM Grace Hopper building: "It is incoherent to offer gender as a substitute for race. Race, gender and class are not interchangeable. Changing Calhoun to Hopper did not provide an answer to the demand of students of color: For Yale to recognize its complicity in white supremacy." Come on Yale, it's not 2010 anymore and things have moved on. It's time for you to move on too.

Rachel Anne Dolezal is an American 
civil rights activist. She was president 
of the National Association for the 
Advancement of Colored People.
I thought that we were past this. Since gender is merely a construct of convenience (we are all male - or we are all female based on the whim of the moment) and race follows that (we are all negroes if we want to be so identified). Rachel Dolezal led the way to empower white women to embrace their blackness, to find their inner Africana. 

Ebony Magazine makes their point that Dolezal isn't really a negro, or at any rate is nowhere near African enough. But is it only DNA that makes you Asian, an American Indian, Caucasian or a Negro?

If Bruce Jenner can be the woman of the year and a spokesperson for women in America even though his male courting tackle remains intact, who are we to say that he can't be a black woman if he so identifies?
(The College Fix) It’s not enough for the Yale Women’s Center that the university took the name of a slaveholding vice president off a building. 
It criticized the school for renaming Calhoun College after an accomplished alumna, computer-science pioneer and Rear Adm. Grace Murray Hopper, because she was white. 
The Yale Daily News reports: 
However, while the renaming may represent an affirmation of the power of both student and New Haven activists to enact change, the Yale Women’s Center has argued that more remains to be done. In a Facebook post last weekend, the Women’s Center wrote that the decision to “change the name from a white supremacist to a white woman, as amazing as she may be, is an act of whitewashing.”
Shaun King - born white, but always wanted to be black.
Helped form and lead Black Lives Matter
There are a number of black privilege people out there who bitterly cling to race as a construct of birth rather than merely an artifact of self-identification. That's particularly true of the black lives matter group and their white leader, Shaun King.  King transitioned to being a negro at some point in his life and still wants people to regard him in that way.

Does all of this make the students at Yale a bit suspect when they persecute Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper USN, because she currently identifies as being white and a woman? I think that it does. The smug, bigoted, xenophobic, entitled, spoiled, racist and sexist students at Yale are trying to enforce colonial style structures by maintaining that race and gender are absolute and can not be re-imagined (and then re-re-identified as needed) based on personal choice.
