Gut Wrenching to Watch. This is What Gardasil Did to My Daughter

July 9, 2015 | Author:

Uploaded to Youtube on July 1, 2015 by Amber Smith

This was a very hard video to post. My 12 year old daughter was fine before her vaccine. Now this is her life. We live in New Zealand and I thought our healthcare system was ok. We have been left to deal with this ourselves. I’m showing this because I want people to know what damage this vaccine can and does cause. Please research before deciding. I didn’t :(

Sorry the audio wasn’t the best. What I am saying is, “I’ve just carried Briar out of the bath as her legs keep collapsing. This is the amount of pain she is in after pain killers. [She says] that her pain feels like a ‘big knife’ in her legs, just over a year ago she could do all this, (have a bath, play sport, just basically have a life. Then HPV vaccine happened and she can’t do a thing. This is her life and this is the part nobody sees. I didn’t want to cause her more pain but I wanted to show what her life is now.”

Thank you everyone for your support and advice. we will be starting I.V. Vit C shortly and I will keep you updated. Please feel free to leave comments. Please also remember that I am human. I made the decision to give her all 3 vaccines based on my Drs.  telling me it was the best thing for her. I did not (at the time) even consider it was HPV vaccine that was causing her pain. It wasn’t until I was able to take a step back and look at all the reasons for her decline in health. Of course I feel guilty. Who wouldn’t?! But this can no long[er] be put on my shoulders. We all make the best decisions we can at the time with the information we have in front of us. Thank you to all those who have supported us! I really has been so positive from this horrible situation. Once again, thank you.

Who has deceived thee as often as thyself? -Ben Franklin

Genuine self-deception pertains to such grand desires (e.g., vanity, religion, optimism) that can be satisfied simply by believing that they are satisfied. In short, self-deception is simply a matter of desire-motivated belief or wishful thinking; in self-deception one satisfies a desire through holding a belief. – Greg Bahnsen

[Editor’s Note: This is why it is often suggested the TV should be unplugged. A constant diet of TV and film changes the way we think. Story structure for screen is built on speculation, if even for the sake of length. Every detail cannot be included. The viewers never have full details even in a complete scene. Imagination fills in easily enough as we speculate about full meaning of what we’ve just seen. We are lead to believe certain things all the while speculating about the outcome. Screen writers know this. It’s what makes for a good ending. They must deliver according to our speculations but in a surprising and fulfilling way. Critical thinking skills are not required. Now current writers leave out honest character development all together. Also it is common practice to throw out established character for the sake of agenda. One season you have a stable consistent worldview honest and keeping with the character’s belief system, even atheist characters are true to character. But in the next season the same character is suddenly inconsistent with his established worldview, drawing completely different conclusions, unnaturally, and unrealistically. TV and film has taught us we have no absolutes. Ideas and people can not be trusted. We have feasted on a diet of spin and can no longer reason or makes sense of reality. Realistically even unbelievers are consistent in their worldview creatures of habit following the same patterns of sin and failure. Not so in the imaginary world of news and sexual politics scripted for a culture of people drunk on narrative thanks to Hollywood.]

[S]ame-sex marriage is popularly presented as nothing more than an extension of the marriage franchise.  This idea borrows its strength not from a philosophical inquiry into the nature of marriage and human sexuality, but from an uncritical familiarity with the status quo and an equally uncritical imagination of a new one. In other words, many people imagine, and are encouraged to imagine, that same-sex marriage is simply bringing homosexual partnerships “on board” with existing heterosexual marriages. Imagination can thereby combine reassuring elements of the familiar past with strikingly different novelties and reforms of the future, a combination that careful analysis cannot endorse.

Imagination can gloss over a multitude of inconsistencies and logical conflicts, and its emotive sway can draw our attention away from critical details.

James Clavell’s The Children’s story (part 1)

July 8, 2015 | Author:

 

We take so much for granted in this wonderful world of ours. Free speech, freedom to question, freedom to choose what we read, where our children go to school, where we live, what we say, what we think. All our glorious inalienable rights so solid, so permanent. But are they?

Here is James Clavell’s “The Children’s Story” but it’s not just for children. It’s for all of us. The place: a neighborhood school room near you. The time: they just conquered us.

The Sexual Rehabilitation Movement

July 8, 2015 | Author:

sweetcakes

Since the US Supreme Court legalized gay “marriage” last month, a number of people (including those of us at AiG) have been warning that legalizing gay “marriage” is only the beginning of an agenda. From what we’ve seen and know about the LGBT movement, the leaders don’t just want legalization of their immmoral behavior, but also want to force acceptance of this on everyone. They want everyone not just to tolerate their position, but to accept it while they themselves show intolerance for those who do not hold to their views. I encourage you to read this article from Canada, which we believe is a warning of things to come in the USA.

“I am doing a great work.”

By Betty Burger, originally published August, 19, 2003

A couple of days ago I was busily at work in the kitchen when my four-year-old son called, “Mommy…Mommy? Can you set up Memory for Aunt Peggy and me so we can play? Is that all right with you, Mommy? It would give you something to do.” Now generally, I am not among those who think they lack for things to do. I am a homeschooling mother of eight children-seven of whom are still at home being actively homeschooled.

I don’t know any moms who think they have little to do. But I do know many moms who waffle on the significance of what they are doing. The endless tasks of motherhood, how important are they? How important is setting up a game for a preschooler and a retarded woman to play? Our culture flatly states that to stay home with one’s children and worse yet serve one’s husband is sheer lunacy. The career woman can look very attractive in her designer suit, and let’s face it, her paycheck is pretty attractive too. The question is not whether we are busy. The career woman, the “working mom,” and the mother at home are all busy. The real question is whether what we are busy with is of any importance. How do we decide what a “great work” is? What is the basis for our judgment? Moms at home are plainly despised and who likes to be despised? And stay at home mothers are not the only despised ones in our culture. (more…)

Defining Marriage

Some Christians, recognizing the change that occurs because of the redefinition of marriage, argue that we need a two-track system: marriage as defined by the state and marriage as defined by the church. The problem with this view is that it also misunderstands the nature of marriage. Neither the state nor the church has the authority to change the essential nature of marriage, since the institution was neither created by nor belongs to either the church or the state. As Dr. R.C. Sproul wrote in a previous issue of Tabletalk (June 2013):

Marriage is ordained and instituted by God—that is to say, marriage did not just spring up arbitrarily out of social conventions or human taboos. Marriage was not invented by men but by God.

Because the three institutions of church, state, and marriage have interdependent yet independent existence, they can decide whether to recognize each other’s legitimacy, but they cannot delineate each other’s boundaries.

New Proposal to Temporarily Sterilize All NZ Teenage Females

July 6, 2015 | Author:

teensolice

Yesterday the NZ media featured coverage of a new proposal that has been put forward by two “senior” academics from the University of Otago, who would like to see all young New Zealand females temporarily sterilised with long-acting chemical contraceptive implants.

In their ideal vision for the future of New Zealand young people, these academics would like temporary sterilisation to be the default policy that young girls would have to deliberately be opted out of if they didn’t want their new and still-developing fertility to be chemically shut down for months or years at a time. No, this is not the plot of some dystopian novel or film, this really is a policy that a couple of NZ academics apparently now seriously consider to be a good idea.

To put things mildly: there is a lot to be concerned about with this proposal.

New Book by Albert Mohler Examines The Moral Revolution of Same-Sex Marriage

July 5, 2015 | Author:

We.Cannot.Be_.Silent.Book_.Cover_.Small_We Cannot Be Silent‘ by Dr. Albert Molher to release October 2015.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 30, 2015 – Dr. Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, exposes the negative effects of the sexual revolution that has swept away morality and redefined marriage in his forthcoming book “We Cannot Be Silent,” releasing October 27, 2015 (Thomas Nelson, 9780718032487, $24.99).

Subtitled “Speaking truth to a culture redefining sex, marriage and the very meaning of right & wrong,” Mohler’s work dispels the myth that the moral revolution is only beginning now that the Supreme Court of the United States of America has legalized same-sex marriage. Instead, he contends, this revolution did not start with same-sex marriage and is far from over, and he examines what this means for America.

Schools Implant IUDs in Girls as Young as 6th Grade Without Their Parents Knowing

Earlier this month, LifeNews.com reported on a high school in Seattle, Washington that is now implanting intrauterine devices (IUD), as well as other forms of birth control and doing so without parental knowledge or permission.

The IUD is known as a long acting reversible contraception, and may even act as an abortifacient. So, a young teen in Seattle can’t get a coke at her high school, but she can have a device implanted into her uterus, which can unknowingly kill her unborn child immediately after conception. Or, if she uses another method, she can increase her chances of health risks for herself, especially if using a new method.

Why are so many straight people pro gay?

July 4, 2015 | Author:

Ah, the life...design

Why are so many straight people pro gay? Because the normalization of homosexuality is the premiere achievement of heterosexual ideology. “Gay” and “straight” are not taxonomies but ideologies. They are not orientations but disorientations: whether bi-, homo-, or hetero-, hyphenated sexuality makes us lose our sense of direction toward the truly sexual, and the victims of such ideology are children.

The words “homosexual” and “heterosexual” are nineteenth-century neologisms made to sever romance from responsibility and sex from fecundity. “Heterosexuality was made to serve as this fanciful framework’s regulating ideal,” writes Michael Hannon, summarizing Foucault, “preserving the social prohibitions against sodomy and other sexual debaucheries without requiring recourse to the procreative nature of human sexuality.” The myth has become fact, and that is why so many straight people are pro gay. Homosexuality ratifies heterosexuality.

The very principles and practices that aid and abet homosexual ideology only validate heterosexual ideology: cohabitation, no-fault divorce, sterile sex, the exultation of romantic love, the trite story of the couple who rebels against the world so they can ride off into the sunset together, the assumption that children are a lifestyle option, even a purchasable commodity through adoption and in vitro fertilization. Heterosexuality, I would argue, is in fact protohomosexuality.

The Daily Signal: Fatherhood and Marriage Bring Out the Best in Men

Is fatherhood becoming a relic of the past?

The sad absence of fathers in American families is pervasive and has been growing for decades. In the 1960s, less than 10 percent of American children were born to single women, but as of 2013, the number had increased to 41 percent. Among Hispanic children, 54 percent are born to unwed mothers, and the figure is 72 percent for African-American children.

The institution of fatherhood is not merely a passé throwback to the mid-20th century. Active and engaged fatherhood is an integral part of nature’s design. As Rutgers University’s David Popenoe states, “The contribution of fathers to child-rearing is unique and irreplaceable.”

Research shows the absence of fathers in the home is associated with poorer outcomes for children. Children with involved fathers are more likely to graduate from college, and children raised by both their married mothers and fathers are far less likely to be poor and less likely to engage in delinquent behaviors or become teen parents.

Given the surprising (and apparently sudden) changes in what our country is now considering to be “moral” government-approved behavior, I thought it was time for a pep talk. Most of you all are probably a lot like me. It hasn’t been difficult to live like a Christian woman even in a culture that has been gradually drifting away from its Christian foundation. But the sudden lurch of this past week’s Supreme Court decision has certainly been a wake-up call.

Mohler: After the Ball–Why the Homosexual Movement Has Won

July 1, 2015 | Author:

[Editor’s note: If you don’t read anything else, read this. Every one of us is acquainted with someone who has bought into the marketing agendas of the homosexual movement. They’ve become propagandists without knowing it. Even Christians who try to cite homosexual theology or are perverting doctrines about sin and forgiveness, judging,and  love, etc. etc. etc. Where did all of this come from? They’re parroting the marketing slogans of homosexual tyranny brought to you by authors Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen in their 1990 publication of, After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90’s.]

The spectacular success of the homosexual movement stands as one of the most fascinating phenomena of our time. In less than two decades, homosexuality has moved from “the love that dares not speak its name,” to the center of America’s public life. The homosexual agenda has advanced even more quickly than its most ardent proponents had expected, and social change of this magnitude demands some explanation.

A partial explanation of the homosexual movement’s success can be traced to the 1989 publication of After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90s. Published with little fanfare, this book became the authoritative public relations manual for the homosexual agenda, and its authors presented the book as a distillation of public relations advice for the homosexual community. A look back at its pages is an occasion for understanding just how successful their plan was.

Authors Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen combined psychiatric and public relations expertise in devising their strategy. Kirk, a researcher in neuropsychiatry, and Madsen, a public relations consultant, argued that homosexuals must change their presentation to the heterosexual community if real success was to be made.

Conceiving their book as a “gay manifesto for the 1990s,” the authors called for homosexuals to repackage themselves as mainstream citizens demanding equal treatment, rather than as a promiscuous sexual minority seeking greater opportunity and influence.
