Kathy Griffin has quickly found out how doing something very wrong has some pretty pricey consequences. Please note, this is not a post to harass anyone, including Kathy Griffin. So don’t come on my blog saying i’m being mean or whatever.

Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin apologizes for photo shoot with bloodied Trump mask, says she ‘went too far’

After seeing that photo, it took me a bit to figure out what she has done reading some of the articles and needless to say what Kathy has done was unacceptable. To find this funny you have to be some kind of sick individual to begin with. Shortly after she posted these photos, a whole bunch of people were furious and she knew right away that what she did was wrong, immediately apologized and begged for forgiveness. However, if you are creating a life like head of someone, bloody it, then post it like a barbarian you already know what you are doing. And she thought this was a joke? It seems to me she was pretty serious about wanting Donald Trump dead. Using her comedy routine to vent frustration over Trump being president isn’t exactly the best thing.

Then this happened, Barron Trump Thought Kathy Griffin’s Beheaded Trump Image Was His Dad

Trump family sources tell us Barron was in front of the TV watching a show when the news came on and he saw the bloody, beheaded image. We’re told he panicked and screamed, “Mommy, Mommy!”

As it was put to us, “He’s 11. He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad.”

Melania called out Kathy, saying what she did was disturbing, wrong and “makes you wonder about [her] mental health.”

Could you imagine a kid, having to go through the possibility of one of your parents being dead, murdered no less. Some people also believe Barron is autistic although i couldn’t find any concrete evidence of that.  Trump Family Has ‘Made It Very Clear’ What They Think of Kathy Griffin

If that’s not enough..  ‘He broke me’: A defiant, tearful Kathy Griffin slams attacks by Trump and his family

“I’m not good at being appropriate,” she said. “I’m only good at doing comedy one way. It’s in your face. I’m going to make fun of the president. And I’m going to do it more now.”

Kathy Griffin loses remainder of her tour gigs in wake of Donald Trump severed head scandal after dramatic press conference

Here is the full Kathy Griffin press conference,

After watching the video, she does seem sincere in her apology but at the same time she has some kind of mental illness. Many people won’t forgive her for her misdeeds and that is a big problem in this world today. Not to mention there is a whole lot of hate going around, Kathy and Trump are both catalysts for hate. The masses just follows, it’s basically “hate spreads like wildfire”.

As a Christian, we follow the mindset of forgiving people for their misdeeds, even if they do something really awful such as what Kathy Griffin did. At the same time, we must learn from our mistakes. Some people refuse to learn from their mistakes, such as the transgender activism. They often blame others for their own actions and instead of saying “ok, well people feel really strongly about being against transgender people so we need to talk to the doctor and find another form of treatment besides transitioning” they say and continue to say “your a bigot, you are uneducated, i hope people like you become extinct like the dinosaurs” which again fuels hate and rage. We can’t have some sort of common ground and with the Kathy Griffin scenario, there is a lot of hate being spewed around.

We live in a Godless society where people are doing what they want and ignore the consequences of their actions or their actions affecting other people in a negative way. With the media, slamming Kathy Griffin.. constantly berating Donald Trump there is no way to really see things other than intense hatred. This leads to violence and war. As a Christian we are taught there is a heaven and hell and when we die, we go to the one that we are judged with. What we do in this life will matter in the next. However, today we are living in between heaven and hell, to some it’s heaven, other’s it’s hell. Do we create a heaven here on earth or do we let it fall into the depths of hell? What we do matters!

(sorry for the potato video quality)

I like using the media for showing what i am talking about and what music or tv show can relate to. Shows like NCIS, The Walking Dead, Star Trek has a lot of different lessons.

But some haven’t learned them (i read recently about how people don’t need to respect robots)

The idea that Data is a sentient being is pretty complex. In reality we should be respecting all life, but to some it isn’t possible. They lack the spiritual guidance and chances are they think they are God. Star Trek Voyager revisits this with the Doctor, a hologram that clearly has shown he is a sentient being. Some people may have a saying “Ghost in the Machine”, well there’s a lot we don’t know about energy, about our souls. God created us in his image and i guess we are creating in his image as well.

Here are the songs (yes it’s death metal lol) that reflect the problems society has. If you don’t like the music, you can click on the lyrics. People will interpret the lyrics in different ways. I also added the lyrics to “Pitch Black Progress” by Scar Symmetry because it bears posting on the main page. So you can skip down if you’d like. On the surface the song is mostly towards consumerism, but at the same time it speaks to how our society functions. People don’t think for themselves, if one person sees another doing something, they’ll do the same thing no matter how crazy, stupid or insane it might be. It’s relevant to what this article is about, but at the same time, this article is only scratching the surface. “Pitch Black Progress” speaks to our very existence, what we are doing here with our time on earth. It is very limited and often times we’re on a one track mind. There is so much more to life than to work, watch tv, drink or to hang out, but we limit ourselves. We are caught up in this place called life rushing around to our next job that we don’t think about what we are doing.

Pitch Black Progress

This landscape mechanical
Well-oiled black machinery
Bio-driven computers
Programmed for slave labor

For slave labor!

Structure made in urban design
Kills the evolution of the mind
Marching on a dead end path
With misplaced concentration

It’s a pitch-black progress
It’s a dead end process
It’s a pitch-black progress
No more, no less

Digital temples monitor the population
Supplying the masses with what they see fit
Programming digital dreams for the consumers
A zombie nation devoid of improvisation

[Solo: J. Kjellgren]

Electro-hypnotic messages
Downloaded directly to the brain
Endless chanting subliminal
Hammers down the-will to resist
Progressing into a pitch black future
Leaving behind an analogue past
Promoting all of their new ways
Whatever the cost may be

[Solo: P. Nilsson]

It’s a pitch-black progress
It’s a dead end process
It’s a pitch-black progress
No more, no less

Introducing a pitch-black approach
Taste the horns of the future
Swallow the sulphur of the new order
To resist is to non-exist

I could list more songs but i think this may overload someone’s phone or something lol.

Last but not least here is the lyrics to “Break The Silence” by After Life. The song is about animal abuse but look a little deeper…

Each and every life

On earth has as much right
To be here as you and me
There isn’t a right way
To kill someone who doesn’t want
To die!

People don’t
want to hear
The truth about themselves
Closed and ignorant
We are totally blind

Without compassion
And respect for innocents
Our souls end up in Hell
Indifferent

Time to live thinking about
The struggles of survivors
To make a world free of your lies
Paradise?

Break the silence
We can see our Paradise?
Break the silence
Can we name it a Paradise?
I am the Voice of Voiceless
And i’ll say loudly that isn’t said
I am the Voice of Voiceless
A Voice to scream that isn’t said
End of endless lies…
Blinded innocence

Freedom, justice for them
Too many murders on our hands
Broken inside, acts of violence
Prayer, for a future
Free of cruelty and cowardice

Equality
We must not forget that hopeful world
Unforgiven
Mistakes of the past, to break the silence…

It’s really up to society to determine the path to take. Our world needs a ton of prayers.

Coming across melodic death metal has been one of my favorite memories. It started out with At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity and In Flames. There are some great stuff in the genre and this is among one of the first songs i have been exposed to, sometime in 2002 or 2003,

Hours Passed In Exile Lyrics

As i got more involved in the metal subgenres the more i really enjoy the intense but melodic music, here’s a few youtube videos of that example (pretty rough/raw folk metal which has some symphonic, melodic black/death in it as well, pretty heavy insane stuff though so listen at your own risk there)
As I Die… – Lemuria (you could skip to 3:24 if you wish)
A Day of Reckoning by Lemuria (the amazing melodic solo comes around 4 minutes) though the rest of (both songs) it was pretty good at first, but gets pretty monotonous or tiring so those may not be the best examples, but every once in a while listening to those 2 songs are pretty epic in it’s own way but not meant to be overplayed unless of course you just go for the solos.

I actually find that listening to the more melodic, but intense stuff is better and still has some good solos in it as well…

And there are some pretty insane long songs too that are really good.

Folk music mixed with melodic death metal, and then there’s progressive melodic death metal,

(lyrics in video)

Other than some repeating lyrics throughout this song (which gets a little tedious at times) clocks around 16 minutes! If you hear it the first few times it’s amazing and even when writing this i’m playing back this song and it’s still epic. Yeah, so anyway along with my last post, My Introduction (as a Christian and metalhead) i decided to post something like this because, well i felt like it.

Or because i don’t want to be talking about controversial stuff all the time like i have been doing for the past 8 months, or a year…

no-transgenders

Like a snowball effect the hatred against transgenders continue to rise among Americans. It’s really not that surprising considering the amount of backlash goes on during the daily basis such as what is going on with these kids, 4 convicted of kidnapping and torturing a special needs man which has received death threats already.

Scott Pruitt Leads Opposition Against Transgender People in America
Family Rejection Leaves Too Many Transgender Americans Homeless
Transgender people skip food and drink to avoid using public bathrooms
Transgender Rights Are Under Attack in These 11 States
In Mass., transgender patients decry hostility over medical care
Detroit man accused of shooting transgender woman in the face
former town councilor and father-of-two, 46, is found dead alongside 21-year-old transgender woman
Transgender girl, 11, ‘shot in the head with BB gun at school after five-month bullying campaign’
Transgender woman sentenced to prison for sex acts with teen boys in Torrance

And a couple of my favorites,

Transgender Killer Moved from Female Prison after Sex with Inmates
A Parent’s Guide To Not Transing The Kids

In those sea of links (yes i often get this in my newsfeeds) and it’s just a bit disconcerting to say the least. Mostly the fact that there is fight between whether or not it’s ok to let kids transition or not. Transgender visibility in the media is definitely increasing and it has not changed my perception. There’s a lot of hate against transgenders and a few links above including the trans killer having sex with female inmates and sure, if you read the article carefully and do the research they are not transgender at all. But the general public doesn’t care. All it takes is the fact the guy claimed he was transgender to take advantage of the situation and he was pretty successful at it too, to get people riled up.

Many people do not trust transgenders for these reasons and already there’s a lot of hate and violence against transgenders. If they are not driven to suicide someone will try to murder them. But like anything, transgender activists will put the blame on the media and the public for having such an irrational fear or hate for transgenders. Not only that transgender activism continues to lump intersex people as transgender. Parents know this and that should be the only medical intervention for children to decide, with adult supervision of course. More than likely this is where it all started and broadened to include children who exhibit gender dysphoria. Whatever the case is the other link, a parent’s guide to not transing the kids shows that people are growing impatient that someone like Kenneth Zucker will come around to help raise their kids so they do not have to fear their life. Such as the link where an 11 year old transgender kid got shot in the head with a BB gun. The insanity of allowing a child to transition and then is subjected to constant bullying which leads to destructive harm. It just won’t end either, even though that article may have a happy ending it just ends with a bunch of people supporting the kid through the grief which gives the kid a moment of relief. But it won’t stop. It will get worse for these people when they get involved in relationships and while you can do background checks on people, just because they are nice and not dangerous to be around doesn’t mean something bad will happen.

When i was a young Christian, i’ve seen other Christians do harmful things to others and couldn’t understand it. Later on in life i have noticed that like with anything else, Christianity is just a label. I have seen Christians listen to satanic music such as Deicide (though i know many that are too afraid to even touch that subject) and later on came to the conclusion that it really doesn’t matter who you are, what religion you have you still have to just watch out for everyone. Nowadays not much does surprise me, as a metalhead who happens to be a Christian, i see that others are similar. But that’s another subject altogether (which may end up in the next blog, metal music and Christianity).

Back to the subject at hand, in reality the transgender activism is self destructing, take a look at this article, (I am Jazz) Doll based on transgender teen to debut at New York Toy Fair and already the comments are flooding in on this topic (on Facebook mostly) ranging from transgenders are mentally ill to commenting on the doll, “is the private parts detachable?”. I have even seen a couple that mention if the doll commits suicide. This is how people see transgenders. And still the transgender activists insist that children be allowed to choose their gender (or live as the gender they feel that they are, because they are born that way). These people do not really have the best interest in our children’s future and continue to force feed American parents that transing your kids is the only way to prevent the suicide risk. Which has been proven time and again that is just false. Sure, parents who support their trans kids are more likely to have a lower suicide risk but in order to avoid the outside interference you have to find a location that largely supports transgenders and then move. That isn’t an option for many people and including parents with children, battling the finances and keeping the job they are happy with already.

But what the transgender activism wants is to change society. They most likely don’t think that parents should move. The parents should be ‘educating the neighbors and schools’. And well, trying to convince people of intersex people (which should be a different story) is difficult enough, people still consider intersex to be ‘freaks of nature’. The hate continues but again this damages the ability for intersex people to live normally because while the gender dysphoria gets all the attention, the intersex subject gets tucked away quietly but they too are being discriminated against due to the transgender label. Again as always, it’s recommended that parents learn the dangers of allowing their children to transition and to find another way. As parents are coming together to compare notes on how to help their kids, there is already another way and there may just be other people like Kenneth Zucker out there who actively helps children overcome their confusion about gender.
