Illinois Schools Canceling Christmas and Halloween to Avoid Offending Muslims

Fri, Sep 28, 2007 at 7:00:53 pm PST

Another absolutely disgusting example of pre-emptive dhimmitude, in the name of tolerance and multiculturalism, right here in the US: First Jell-O, now Santa.

So long, Halloween parade. Farewell, Santa’s gift shop.

The holiday traditions are facing elimination in some Oak Lawn schools this year after complaints that the activities are offensive, particularly to Muslim students.

Final decisions on which of the festivities will be axed will fall to the principals at each of Ridgeland School District 122’s five schools, Supt. Tom Smyth said.

Parents expect that the announcement is going to add to the tension that has been building since officials agreed earlier this month to change the lunch menu to exclude items containing pork to accommodate Muslim students. News that Jell-O was struck from the menu caused such a stir that officials have agreed to bring it back. Gelatin is often made with tissue or bones of pigs or other animals.

That controversy now appears to have been dwarfed by the holiday debate, which became so acrimonious Wednesday that police were called to Columbus Manor School to intervene in a shouting match among parents.

“It’s difficult when you change the school’s culture,” said Columbus Manor Principal Sandy Robertson.

Secular Lefties

Secular Jihad

Speaking as an ex-three-time felon, church should be part of the program. Changing one’s outlook on reality (a worldview revision) will increase greatly someone’s view of the importance of human life and property. If a person has no worldview emphasizing this importance, they will not view life and liberty as anything important to support (here I am talking about murder and theft, rape, and the like). A complete overhaul in one’s worldview is sometimes needed – e.g., changing the inner-man – in order to change “the man” himself. Speaking from experience.

Adviser fired when kids attend church

'Policy requires youth workers or juvenile offenders to leave'

A law firm is taking up the case of a youth services agency worker in Tampa, Fla., who was dismissed from his job after some of the juvenile offenders with whom he worked also went to his church….

….Mathew Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel and dean of the Liberty University school of law, said such a policy banning such attendance must not be allowed to stand.

Liberty Counsel's lawsuit is over the dismissal of Dennis Hughes and names as a defendant the youth services agency that terminated him when he refused to stop allowing troubled teens in its program to attend his church and its activities.

Also named in the lawsuit is the agency that manages the program and "orchestrated" his dismissal, the University Area Community Development Corp., officials said.

Hughes was a case manager for Bay Area Youth Service in the Prodigy Cultural Arts Program, which provides case management services for juvenile offenders. If a juvenile completes the program, the state's criminal charges in the case are dropped, officials said.

Since BAYS gets all of its revenue from the state of Florida, it operates as an arm of the state.

"But Florida has no law forbidding church leaders from attending functions with juvenile offenders in state programs," the law firm said.

I love coming across stories like this… especially since a friendly adversary of mine used this exact “scientist” as evidence supposedly showing the Bush administration covering up facts as well as my position on Global Warming. My friend’s blog was entitled “Giving NASA the ‘Nazi Treatment’”, and as you can see from this blog and my responses to it…

…who called the outcome from the get-go.

Dr. Hansen, Director of the Goddard institute, NASA, and politico extraordinaire.

Dr. Hansen is nothing more than a shill for the Democrat positions, even going so far as actively campaigning for John “rice butt” Kerry. One of the points I made is just because someone is the “Director of the Goddard Institute” doesn’t make him (or her) any less biased or vulnerable to such political hot-topics such as Global Warming. I will take the founder of the Goddard Institute and first Director’s agnostic thinking on matters of faith and science over this DNC (atheist) any day.

Dr. Robert Jastrow wrote an excellent book many years ago entitled God and the Astronomers, and he points out from an agnostic point of view that all the evidence coming from cosmology points towards God. A great book for the person who wants to look at the universe with a fresh perspective. But I digress, or should I say progress?

I also posted an article about from the father of climatology (he founded the study of weather as a discipline) where he stated, and I had hoped Kimba caught this in his reading of my blog:

Dr. Reid Bryson, known as the father of scientific climatology, considers global warming a bunch of “hooey.”

So, if global warming isn't such a burning issue, why are thousands of scientists so concerned about it?

"Why are so many thousands not concerned about it?" Bryson shot back.

"There is a lot of money to be made in this," he added. "If you want to be an eminent scientist you have to have a lot of grad students and a lot of grants. You can't get grants unless you say, 'Oh global warming, yes, yes, carbon dioxide.'"

You can only get big grants from the Feds if you create a huge problem and then say you want to study it. HMMmmm. I guess this could never happen by “white-coated” “non-biased” scientists who have nothing but the plight of humanity on their minds and not their careers. Anyway, we all know that this type of greed and career mongering is confined only to the oil industry! (I was being sarcastic for those that didn't notice.)

At any rate, here ids the article that makes my heart jump for joy merely because it silences one more knucklehead on the issue, and gives me ammo to lob at a friend. Enjoy:

Investors Business Daily – The Soros Threat to Democracy

The Soros Threat To Democracy


Monday, September 24, 2007

Democracy: George Soros is known for funding groups such as that seek to manipulate public opinion. So why is the billionaire's backing of what he believes in problematic? In a word: transparency.

George Soros & Exclusive Series

How many people, for instance, know that James Hansen, a man billed as a lonely "NASA whistleblower" standing up to the mighty U.S. government, was really funded by Soros' Open Society Institute , which gave him "legal and media advice"?

That's right, Hansen was packaged for the media by Soros' flagship "philanthropy," by as much as $720,000, most likely under the OSI's "politicization of science" program.

That may have meant that Hansen had media flacks help him get on the evening news to push his agenda and lawyers pressuring officials to let him spout his supposedly "censored" spiel for weeks in the name of advancing the global warming agenda.

Hansen even succeeded, with public pressure from his nightly news performances, in forcing NASA to change its media policies to his advantage. Had Hansen's OSI-funding been known, the public might have viewed the whole production differently. The outcome could have been different.

That's not the only case. Didn't the mainstream media report that 2006's vast immigration rallies across the country began as a spontaneous uprising of 2 million angry Mexican-flag waving illegal immigrants demanding U.S. citizenship in Los Angeles, egged on only by a local Spanish-language radio announcer?

Turns out that wasn't what happened, either. Soros' OSI had money-muscle there, too, through its $17 million Justice Fund. The fund lists 19 projects in 2006. One was vaguely described involvement in the immigration rallies. Another project funded illegal immigrant activist groups for subsequent court cases.

So what looked like a wildfire grassroots movement really was a manipulation from OSI's glassy Manhattan offices. The public had no way of knowing until the release of OSI's 2006 annual report.

Meanwhile, OSI cash backed terrorist-friendly court rulings, too.

Do people know last year's Supreme Court ruling abolishing special military commissions for terrorists at Guantanamo was a Soros project? OSI gave support to Georgetown lawyers in 2006 to win Hamdan v. Rumsfeld — for the terrorists.

OSI also gave cash to other radicals who pressured the Transportation Security Administration to scrap a program called "Secure Flight," which matched flight passenger lists with terrorist names. It gave more cash to other left-wing lawyers who persuaded a Texas judge to block cell phone tracking of terrorists.

They trumpeted this as a victory for civil liberties. Feel safer?

It's all part of the $74 million OSI spent on "U.S. Programs" in 2006 to "shape policy." Who knows what revelations 2007's report will bring around events now in the news?

OSI isn't the only secretive organization that Soros funds. OSI partners with the Tides Foundation, which funnels cash from wealthy donors who may not want it known that their cash goes to fringe groups engaged in "direct action" — also known as eco-terrorism.

On the political front, Soros has a great influence in a secretive organization called "Democracy Alliance" whose idea of democracy seems to be government controlled solely of Democrats.

"As with everything about the Democracy Alliance, the strangest aspect of this entire process was the incessant secrecy. Among the alliance's stated values was a commitment to political transparency — as long as it didn't apply to the alliance," wrote Matt Bai, describing how the alliance was formed in 2005, in his book "The Argument: Billionaires, Bloggers and the Battle to Remake Democratic Politics."

Soros' "shaping public policies," as OSI calls it, is not illegal. But it's a problem for democracy because it drives issues with cash and then only lets the public know about it after it's old news.

That means the public makes decisions about issues without understanding the special agendas of groups behind them.

Without more transparency, it amounts to political manipulation. This leads to cynicism. As word of these short-term covert ops gets out, the public grows to distrust what it hears and tunes out.

The irony here is that Soros claims to be an advocate of an "open society." His OSI does just the legal minimum to disclose its activities. The public shouldn't have to wait until an annual report is out before the light is flipped on about the Open Society's political action.

No Gays Need Apply

The President of Iran was laughed at in his speech at Columbia today. He was applauded at the parts that were jabs at the administration or when he spoke of “peace and love,” which is the two most talked about things in the liberal community… that is, bashing Bush and talking about “peace and love.” However, the only time he was really truly laughed at was when he tries to deny a liberal position, homosexuality. He was laughed at because #1) everyone knows there are homosexuals in Iran, and #2), he attacked a liberal position (#2 is merely a commentary).

In fact, even after calling for new or more scholarship on the Holocaust, the bashing of our President, the outright lying about IAEA, the only time the audience "booed" was when he mentioned the gay issue. A weirdly - but typical - Liberal audience. Ahmadinejad may want to watch the below documentary and get back to us ion his statistics.

Iranian Democrat?

Ahamdinejad Could Win the Democratic Nomination

Just a quick post taken from Little Green Footballs (props). Amadinejad had a response that any of the Democrat candidates (and Ron Paul) could have spoken. This is crazy! Do the Dems see this!

Ahmadinejad hits all the left-wing talking points very nicely. Even gets in a mention of Katrina.

  • “I think Mr. Bush, if he wants his party to win the next election, there are cheaper ways to go about this. I can very well give him a few ideas so that the people vote for him. He should respect the American people. They should not bug the telephone conversations of their citizens,” the president said. “They should not kill the sons and daughters of the American nation. They should not squander the taxpayers’ money and give them to weapons companies. And also help the people, the victims of Katrina. People will vote for them if they do these things. What I’m saying, I am being very sincere here. I’m a Muslim. I cannot tell a lie.”

How did different skin colors come about? (IMPORTED ARTICLE)

As was discussed in Where did the human races come from?, we learned that all humans on earth today are descended from Noah and his wife, his three sons and their wives, and before that from Adam and Eve (Genesis 1-11). But today we have many different groups, often called "races," with what seem to be greatly differing features. The most obvious of these is skin color. Many see this as a reason to doubt the Bible's record of history. They believe that the various groups could have arisen only by evolving separately over tens of thousands of years. However, as we shall see, this does not follow from the biological evidence.

Skin Color

A 'black' gene combination. Illustration copyrighted.

We know that skin color is governed by more than one pair of genes. For simplicity, let's assume there are only two, 1 located at positions A and B on the chromosomes. One form of the gene, "M," "says" to make lots of melanin; another form of the gene, 2 "m," says to only make a little melanin. At position A we could have a pair such as MAMA, MAmA, or mAmA 3 which would instruct the skin cells to make a lot, some, or little melanin. Similarly, at position B we could have the gene pairs MBMB, MBmB, or mBmB instructing cells to make a lot, some or little melanin. Thus very dark people could have MAMAMBMB, for example (see figure 1).

Since both the sperm and eggs of such people could only be MAMB, (remember, only one of each A or B pair goes to each sperm or egg) they could only produce children with exactly the same combination of genes as themselves. So the children will all be very dark. Likewise, very light people, with mAmAmBmB, could produce children only like themselves (see figure 2, below).

DNA. Illustration copyrighted.

Let's look at what combinations would result from parents who are the type of brown-skinned person called a mulatto, or MAmAMBmB (the offspring of an MAMAMBMB and mAmAmBmB union, for example; see figure 3, below).

Figures 2 & 3. Illustrations copyrighted.

We can do this with a diagram called a "Punnet square" (see figure 4 below).
Punnet square. Illustration copyrighted.

The left side (of the above table) shows the four different gene combinations possible in the sperm from the father and the top gives the combinations possible in the eggs from the mother (remember that a parent can only pass on one of each pair of genes to each sperm or egg). We locate a particular sperm gene combination and follow the row across to the column below a particular egg gene combination (like finding a location on a street map). The intersection gives the generic makeup of the offspring from that particular sperm and egg union.

For example, an MAmB sperm and an mAMB egg would produce a child with MAmAMBmB, just the same as the parents. The other possibilities mean that five levels of melanin (shades of color) can result in the different offspring of such a mulatto marriage, as roughly indicated by the level of shading in the diagram. If three gene pairs were involved, seven levels of melanin would be possible.

Thus a range of "colors," from very light to very dark, can result in a single sgeneration, beginning with this particular type of mid-brown parents.

If people with MAMAMBMB , who are "pure" black (in the sense of having no genes for lightness at all), were to intermarry and migrate to a place where their offspring could not marry other people of lighter color, all their descendants would be black -- a pure "black line" would result.

If "white" people (mAmAmBmB) were to marry only other whites and migrate to a place where their offspring could not marry darker people, a pure (in the same sense) "white line" would result -- they would have lost the genes needed to produce a large amount of melanin and be black.

It is thus easily possible, beginning with two middle-brown parents, to get not only all the "colors," but also people groups with stable shades of skin color.

But what about people groups that are permanently middle-brown, such as we have today? Again, this is easily explained. If those with genes MAMAmBmB or mAmAMBMB no longer intermarry with others, they will be able be able to produce only mid-brown offspring as in figure 3. (You may want to work this out with your own Punnet square.)

Britain's most amazing twins. If either of these lines were to interbreed again with the other, the process would be reversed. In a short time, their descendants would show a whole range of colors, often in the same family. Figure 5 shows what were called Britain's most amazing twins. One is obviously quite light in complexion, while the other is clearly darker skinned.

Of course, this is not amazing at all when you do the exercise on paper, based on what we have discussed. (A clue if you want to do it yourself: mother cannot be MAMAMBMB. Also, the twins are obviously not identical twins, which are derived from the same egg -- that is, monozygous).

If all the people on earth were to intermarry freely, and then break into random groups that kept to themselves, a whole new set of gene combinations could emerge. It may be possible to have almond eyes with black skin, blue eyes with black, tightly curled hair, etc. We need to remember, of course, that the way in which genes express themselves is much more complex than this simplified picture. For example, sometimes certain genes are linked together. However, the basic point is unaffected.

Even today, within a particular people group you will often see a feature normally associated with another people group. For instance, you will occasionally see a European with a broad flat nose, or a Chinese person with very pale skin or Caucasian eyes. Most scientists now agree that, for modern humans, "race" has little or no biological meaning. This also argues strongly against the idea that the people groups have been evolving separately for long periods.

What Really Happened?

We can now reconstruct the true history of the people groups, using:

  • The information given by the Creator himself in the Book of Genesis.
  • The background information given above.
  • Some consideration of the effect on the environment.

The first created man, Adam, from whom all other humans are descended, was created with the best possible combination of genes -- for skin color, for example. A long time after creation, a worldwide flood destroyed all humans except a man called Noah, his wife, his three sons, and their wives. This flood greatly changed the environment. Afterwards, God commanded the survivors to multiply and cover the earth (Genesis 9:1). A few hundred years later, people chose to disobey God and to remain united in building a great city, with the Tower of Babel as the focal point of rebellious worship.

From Genesis 11, we understand that up to this time there was only one language. God judged the people's disobedience by imposing different languages, so that they could not work together against God. The confusion forced the people to scatter over the earth as God intended.

So all the people groups -- black Africans, Indo-Europeans, Mongolians, and others -- have come into existence since Babel.

Noah and his family were probably mid-brown, with genes for both dark and light skin, because a medium skin color would seem to be the most generally suitable (dark enough to protect against skin cancer, yet light enough to allow vitamin D production). As all the factors for skin color were present in Adam and Eve, they would most likely have been mid-brown as well, with brown eyes and brown (or black) hair. In fact, most of the world's population today is still mid-brown.

After the flood, for the few centuries until Babel, there was only one language and one culture group. Thus, there were no barriers to marriage within this group. This would tend to keep the skin color of the population away from the extremes. Very dark and very light skin would appear, of course, but people tending in either direction would be free to marry someone lighter or darker than themselves, ensuring that the average color stayed roughly the same.

The same would be true of characteristics other than skin color. Under these sorts of circumstances, distinct differences in appearance will never emerge. To obtain such separate lines, you would need to break a large breeding group into smaller groups and keep them separate, that is, prevent interbreeding between groups. This would be true for animal as well as human populations, as every biologist knows.

The Effects of Babel

This is exactly what happened at Babel. Once separate languages were imposed, there were instantaneous barriers. Not only would people tend not to marry someone they couldn't understand, but entire groups which spoke the same language would have difficulty relating to and trusting those which did not. Thus, they would move away or be forced away from each other, into different environments. This, of course, is what God intended. (Is there archaeological evidence of the Tower of Babel? Answer / Is there any reference in early Mesopotamian literature to what happened at the Tower of Babel? Answer / Read the story of the Tower of Babel - Go…)

It is unlikely that each small group would carry the same broad range of skin colors as the original, larger group. One group might have more dark genes, on average, while another might have more light genes. The same thing would occur with other characteristics: nose shape, eye shape, etc. And since they would intermarry only within their own language group, these differences would no longer be averaged out as before.

As these groups migrated away from Babel, they encountered new and different climate zones. This would also have affected the balance of inherited factors in the population. However, the effects of the environment are nowhere near as important as the initial genetic mix of each group.

As an example, consider a group of people who moved to a cold region with little sunlight. Here, the dark-skinned members would not be able to produce enough vitamin D, and thus would be less healthy and have fewer children. So, in time, the light-skinned members would predominate. If several different groups went to such an area, and if one group happened to be carrying few genes for lightness, this particular group could, in time, die out. Thus, natural selection acts on the characteristics already present, and does not create new ones.

It is interesting to note that the ancient Neanderthals of Europe, recognized as fully human, show evidence of vitamin D deficiency in that many of their bones were bent. In fact, this, plus a large dose of evolutionary prejudice, caused them to be classified as "ape-men" for a long time. It is thus quite plausible that they were a dark-skinned people who were unfit for the environment into which they moved because of the skin color genes they began with. Notice (again) that this natural selection, as it is called, does not produce skin colors, but only acts on the created capacity for making skin pigment that is already there.

Sun cream. Photo copyrighted. Provided by Eden Comm.

Conversely, fair-skinned people in very sunny regions could easily be affected by skin cancer. Thus, in these regions dark-skinned people would more readily survive and come to predominate.

So we see that the pressure of the environment can (a) affect the balance of genes within this group, and (b) even eliminate entire groups. This is why we see, to a large extent, that the physical characteristics of people tend to match the environment where they live (e.g., Nordic people with pale skin, equatorial people with dark skin).

But this is not always so. The Inuit (Eskimo) have brown skin, yet live where there is not much sun. Presumably they all have a genetic makeup such as MAMAmBmB which would not be able to produce lighter skin. On the other hand, native South Americans living on the equator do not have black skin. These examples confirm that natural selection does not create new information -- if the genetic makeup of a group of people does not allow variation in color toward the desirable, natural selection cannot create such variation.

Pygmies live in a hot area, but rarely experience strong sunshine in their dense jungle environment; yet they have dark skin. Pygmies may be a good example of another factor that has affected the racial history of man: discrimination.

People different from the "norm" (e.g., a very light person in a dark people group), have historically been regarded as abnormal and rejected by the group. Thus, such a person would find it hard to get a marriage partner. This would further tend to eliminate light genes from a dark people, and vise versa. In this way, groups have tended to "purify" themselves.

Also, in some instances, interbreeding within a small group can accentuate a commonly occurring unusual feature that would otherwise be swamped by marriage outside the group. There is a tribe in Africa whose members all have grossly deformed feet as a result of this inbreeding.

Let us return to the Pygmies. If people possessing genes for short stature were discriminated against, a small group of them might seek refuge in the deepest forest. By marrying only each other they would ensure a Pygmy "race" from then on. The fact that Pygmy tribes do no have their own languages, but instead speak dialects of neighboring non-Pygmy tribal languages, is good evidence to support this.

The Effects of Choice

Certain genetic characteristics may have influenced people groups to make deliberate (or semi-deliberate) choices concerning the environments to which they migrated. For instance, people with genes for a thicker, more insulating layer of fat under their skin would tend to leave areas that were uncomfortably hot.

Common Memories

Noah's Ark as shown in The World That Perished. Copyright, Eden Communications. The evidence for the Bible's account of human origins is more than just biological and genetic. Since all peoples have descended from Noah's family, and a relatively short time ago, we would expect to find some memory of the catastrophic flood in the stories distorted by time retelling. In fact, an overwhelming number of cultures do have accounts that recall a world-destroying flood. Often these have startling parallels to the true, original account (such as: eight people saved in a boat, the sending of birds, a rainbow, and more).


Thus, we conclude that the dispersion at Babel broke up a large interbreeding group into small, interbreeding groups. This ensured that the resultant groups would have different mixes of genes for various physical features. By itself, this dispersion would ensure, in a short time, that there would be certain fixed differences in some of these groups, commonly called "races." In addition, the selection pressure of the environment would modify the existing combinations of genes so that the physical characteristics of each group would tend to suit their environment.

There has been no simple-to-complex evolution of any genes, for the genes were present already. The dominant features of the various people groups result from different combinations of previously existing created genes, plus some minor degenerative changes, resulting from mutation (accidental changes which can be inherited). The originally created (genetic) information has been either reshuffled or has degenerated, but has not been added to.

  1. This simplification is not done to help our case -- the more genes there are, the easier it is to have a huge range of "different" colors. The principle involved can be understood by using two as an example.

  2. Various forms of a gene are called "alleles," but that is not important here.

  3. For the technically minded, this type of genetic expression, where allele dosage affects the trait, is called partial dominance.
