Winston-Salem Billboard Offends Feminists
A billboard on Interstate 40 West near Winston-Salem is angering many who say its message is offensive to women.
The board reads: “Real men provide. Real women appreciate it.”
The owner of a Winston-Salem women’s boutique called Kleur has organized a demonstration against the billboard’s message for
Sunday at 11 a.m.
“We are NOT protesting that the sign is capable of existing, or the people who put it up, or the ad agency, or the right to put it up.
We are protesting patriarchy and sexism, and that this antiquated way of thinking about women exists at all,” the group’s Facebook
The protest takes place at the billboard’s location on I-40 West, headed into Winston -Salem from Kernersville. It is about 85 miles
northeast of Charlotte.
The billboard belongs to Whiteheart Outdoor Advertising, and owner Bill Whiteheart said the organization that bought the space
doesn’t want to be identified.
It’s amazing what causes people to protest in today’s world. These women believe this sign promotes “patriarchy and sexism.”
Let’s look at this a little more closely. The Bible says that if a man does not “provide” for his family he is worse than an infidel. Men are
obligated to take care of their families. This is not sexism.
Proclaiming that men provide for their families also promotes men paying child support, and alimony, and making sure that their families
are taken care of even if they are no longer around. Is this sexism?
Concerning women appreciating having a man do what a man is supposed to do - how is this wrong? It would be wrong if they didn’t show
Showing appreciation is not a sign of weakness, and men doing what men are supposed to do is not a sign of sexism.
These women protesting this sign need to get a real life!
Liberal Protestors Cannot Be Pleased or Appeased - So They Should Be Ignored
The following statement was found in the comment section of an article at Townhall.com (February 23, 2017) about Senator Tom Cotton
answering questions in Arkansas. There were Trump protestors attending.
This is a good summary of why the protestors against Trump must be ignored.
Here’s what the person said:
Let me see if I understand these protesters. "I did not vote for you, and I do not support you. But I demand that you abandon the
views of those who DID vote for you and elected you, and adopt the positions that you opposed in the election. And if you don't, I
won't vote for you again. And if you do what I demand, I still won't vote for you.
There you have it in a nutshell.
Trump has an agenda and was voted in office to put hat agenda in action. Let the liberals whine and cry in their play pins all they want. Let
the liberal media whine and cry with their Crayola crayons all they want. It doesn’t matter. There’s no way to please them anyway.
Donald Trump is showing that he can give it and he can take it. He’s going ahead with his agenda and the liberals are throwing
conniptions. There’s no reason to reach a hand across the aisle when all they want to do is hit you with their other hand.
Tightening America’s Immigration Policy Will Create Problems for Liberal Canada
As desperate asylum seekers continue to flee the Trump administration’s immigration crackdown by crossing into Canada, concern
is growing here over whether the country will be able to cope if the number of migrants keeps growing.
Stories of migrants hauling children and suitcases across frozen fields and snow-covered ditches into Canada have become headline
news. The asylum seekers, who are fleeing President Trump’s travel and refugee bans as well as stepped-up arrests of
undocumented immigrants, have received warm welcomes. But opposition politicians are criticizing the government of Justin
Trudeau for being too harsh or too lax in its approach.
Many Canadians are concerned that this coming Spring could see a gigantic increase in immigrants:
…40 percent said they think Canada is accepting too many refugees. The number of refugee claims has spiked since the election of
Trump. On the Quebec border with the United States alone, there were 452 claims in January compared with 137 in the same
month a year ago.
“There is a significant number of Canadians who have been taking a harder line on the issue of refugee resettlement,” said Shachi
Kurl, the executive director of the Angus Reid Institute. “This is much more than a fringe.”
And with so many migrants willing to traipse through the ice and snow to reach Canada, there are concerns that numbers could soar
with the advent of spring. “Will we be facing down our own mini-Greece or mini-Italy moment? What are we going to see when the
snow melts?” Kurl asks.
There is a battle between conservatives and liberals in Canada like there is here in the United States:
Jenny Kwan, a member of Parliament for the left-leaning New Democratic Party, wants Ottawa to withdraw from its Safe Third
Country Agreement with the United States. That pact states that an individual arriving at an official Canadian border point from the
United States isn’t allowed to make a refugee claim, an effort to avoid “asylum shopping.” But if an asylum seeker crosses into
Canada irregularly - as the current wave of migrants is - and then calls the police, he or she can make a claim legally.
“We need to stand up for human rights,” she told The Washington Post. “We are seeing people who are crossing to Canada through
the back door. They are literally risking life and limb. I don’t think the U.S. can be considered a safe country for refugees at this
But the Conservative Party says the Trudeau government isn’t doing enough to protect “the integrity of our border,” said
Conservative MP Michelle Rempel. She wants the government to make it clear that crossing the border outside official crossings is
“illegal and unsafe” and to take further action if the situation deteriorates.
“I have this feeling that we’re going to see big numbers coming across once the weather gets better,” said Greg Janzen, the reeve -
the equivalent of a mayor - of Emerson, Manitoba, a small town on the border with North Dakota that has seen growing numbers of
The arrivals were once simply a weekend phenomenon, but refugees are now turning up on a daily basis…
Canada needs to tighten its immigration policy from Muslim countries or be prepared for an influx of immigrants and potential violence.
Boy Born With 2% of His Brain is Now an Active Four Year Old
There are some stories that put abortion in its place better than others and here’s one of them.
Shelly Wall received the news that no pregnant woman should hear: Her baby would not survive.
Doctors told Shelly that the baby inside her - a boy - not only had Spina bifida but also had developed a rare complication of the
defect. Hydrocephalus caused his skull to fill with fluid, stopping his brain from growing.
Physicians told Shelly and husband Rob that the baby would not live and urged them to abort him. They refused. Experts told the
Walls that even if their baby survived birth, he would die soon after. They still would not consider aborting him. Surgeons told Shelly
that even if he lived, he would be severely physically and mentally handicapped.
The parents were already planning for the funeral before he was born:
The couple, who already had a teenage daughter, was advised by professionals five times to abort their child. Each time they
But the Walls did follow their doctor's advice and plan for the worst while praying for the best. Shelly and Rob planned their little
boy's funeral before he was even born. "I'd never seen a baby's coffin before," Shelly said.
The Hydrocephalus prognosis was, tragically, correct. When tiny Noah was born, he had less than two percent of a brain.
The baby was born and the brain continued to develop after birth:
Little Noah was rushed into emergency surgery immediately after birth to close the opening at the bottom of his spine and to drain
fluid from his empty brain cavity.
The surgery was successful beyond anyone's hopes. As time went on, Noah's brain began to grow into its cavity.
Today, Noah is a "chatty" little four-year-old, always smiling and very happy. He can count to 10 and hold a pen, is learning to read
and write, and interacts socially with others at his local primary school.
He asks his mother, "You alright?" in reaction to Shelly's tears as she latches his leg braces.
Last year, British television showed Noah's amazing survival in a documentary entitled "The Boy with No Brain."
Brain scans recently revealed that his brain has developed to eighty percent:
…brain scans dramatically showed Noah's empty cranial cavity at birth and then at three years old, when his brain had expanded to
80 percent of normal.
God designed the human body to develop and change at every stage of life. To destroy unborn human life to prevent a problem later is
Here is a boy with two percent of his brain at birth who is now functioning as a happy son of a family who is glad they chose life.
There is no abortion argument that can successfully counter this one.
