The Bee Stings The Hypocrisy of Facebook

‘Internet Service Providers Should Not Be Able To Decide What People Can See Online,’ Says Man Who Decides What People Can See Online.

Tech titan Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, came out strongly against the repeal of net neutrality Friday, calling the rollback of the Obama-era regulation an “injustice.”

“Internet Service Providers should not be able to decide what people can see online,” the man who decides what two billion people can see online every day said in a Facebook video that was placed in front of the precise amount of people he wished. “It’s a violation of a free and open internet.”

“Furthermore, ISPs should not be able to charge more for certain content,” Zuckerberg intoned, though part of his $523 billion company’s revenue comes from throttling the reach of publishers’ content unless the publisher pays Facebook to show their content to people who signed up to see it anyway.

The boss of the largest social network in the world, which is widely known to smother or close down conservative pages for violating what it calls its community guidelines, stressed that the fight for net neutrality is not over. “We’re ready to work with members of Congress and others to help make the internet free and open for everyone.”

“All content should be treated equally,” he added, the slightest hint of a grin curling up the side of his mouth as the video ended.

Yup.  The hypocrisy, it burns.

Martin Luther’s Handwriting: The Font

Yes- it has come to this

How would you like to write like Martin Luther?  That is, how would you like to write with his handwriting?  How would you like to type in his handwriting?  A typographer is developing a computer font based on Luther’s script!


Quote of the Day

‘Alas for you when everyone speaks well of you! This was the way their ancestors treated the false prophets. (Lk. 6:26)

No, Lying Does Not Advance the Kingdom of God, Dave Daubenmire

Speaking on his Pass the Salt webcast this Tuesday morning, evangelist and “Christian activist” Dave Daubenmire gave an eye-opening defense of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, essentially saying that Moore isn’t obligated to tell the truth because the truth would get in the way of God’s agenda.

According to Right Wing Watch, Daubenmire has been an “ardent Moore supporter for years” and argued that Moore’s lies should be viewed as strategic tactics in a football game or in war.

“When I hear people say, ‘Well, Judge Moore is not worthy of the office if he’s lying about what he did,’ I want to grab them and I want to slap them upside the stinking head,” Daubenmire said.

“Judge Moore is trying to infiltrate an ungodly system and the stakes in this campaign are so great for the cause of Christ and Judge Moore is being lambasted by the holier-than-thou Christians who think [the Bible] says we can never lie.”

“It’s best to lie if it advances the kingdom of God,” Daubenmire declared. “There, I said it.”

This is a servant of Satan.

Luther Isn’t Interested In Your Being His Follower

luther_docAsk your evangelists, my dear sirs and brothers, to turn you away from Luther and Karlstadt and direct you always to Christ, but not, as Karlstadt does, only to the work of Christ, wherein Christ is held up as an example, which is the least important aspect of Christ, and which makes him comparable to other saints. But turn to Christ as to a gift of God or, as Paul says, the power of God, and God’s wisdom, righteousness, redemption, and sanctification, given to us. — Martin Luther

Luther doesn’t want followers. He wants Christians.
