‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Presents His Amazing New Rule to Avoid Raging on Social Media

Published

on

Our country is experiencing the deepest divide both culturally and politically, that it’s seen in decades and much of the hate, anger, and violence — both verbal and physical — is the result of flared tempers fueled by social media.

Social media enables every single person to have a voice and to express their opinions, thoughts, and ideas on every subject known to man anonymously, which seems to encourage folks to be harsh, mean, and just plain nasty.

Social media is difficult terrain to navigate, especially for Christians who are commanded by God to love their neighbor. How can this be done in the digital social networking era?

“Duck Dynasty” star Missy Robertson, who joined Strong on a panel discussion, added that she has seen some of her positive social media posts quickly take negative turns.

“[I’m] trying to put something out good on social media and then people will find anything they can to criticize,” she said, before going on to share a rule her husband Jase Robertson lives by.

“Jase has a rule … he said, ‘If you write something out on social media, do not push send for 30 seconds,’” Robertson explained. “It’s the 30-second rule. Read over it, read over it again, read over it again.”

Taking time to review and assess material before tweeting or Facebooking it — especially messages composed out of anger or frustration — often helps people make more informed, rational decisions.

Strong shared that she also has her own rule: Facebook-free Fridays. She essentially stays off all social media and out of the news cycle every Friday. While it’s difficult for the journalist to “unplug,” she said her avoidance of social media for one day a week has helped refresh her heart and mind, while giving her more time to spend with her family.

This idea seems to flow directly from the book of James in the Bible. James, the half brother of Jesus, states that we should be slow to speak, quick to hear, in order to avoid angry outbursts that lead to the destruction of our soul and the souls of others, thus violating the sixth commandment.

This means we need to take time out before we speak, not reacting right away to something someone else does or says, giving ourselves time to biblically reflect on the proper response. If folks abided by this nugget of wisdom, there would be less anger, vitriol, and hurtful words spoken on social media.

Let’s hope this principle seeps into the pores of folks online everywhere.

Alyssa Milano Says If You Claim To Be Pro-Life And Support The Death Penalty, You Need To Zip It

This woman is woefully ignorant.

Published

There are a lot of annoying, ignorant leftists in Hollywood who constantly weigh in on political matters that they seem to either be woefully uninformed about or are just plain evil in their thinking. What actress Alyssa Milano said about pro-lifers who support the death penalty falls into both categories and only serves to make those of us who actually know what we’re talking about long for the days when the social media mute button comes to the real world. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: On Thursday night, actress and abortion champion Alyssa Milano, responding to the announcement that Attorney General William Barr had directed the Federal Bureau of Prisons to clear the way for the federal government to execute five inmates who are all convicted child murderers, snapped at one pro-life advocate, “You’ve lost the right to pull your, ‘pro-life’ narrative-talking-point-bullshit with me.” Milano’s remark followed Sen. Kamala Harris cavalierly disregarding the Second Amendment on Thursday, tweeting, “As president, I will give Congress 100 days to get their act together and pass reasonable gun safety laws. If they don’t, I will take executive action. Thoughts and prayers are not enough. We need action.” As president, I will give Congress 100 days to get their act together and pass reasonable gun safety laws. If they don’t, I will take executive action. Thoughts and prayers are not enough. We need action. — Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) July 26, 2019 Milano responded, “No more complacency. This is what Obama should have done after Sandy Hook when 20 children and 6 adults were murdered violently. Thank you, @KamalaHarris. Thank you.” No more complacency.

Good News! Miley Cyrus Promises Not To Procreate Until Climate Change Is Solved

This woman’s brain is a bag of cats.

Published

One of the main problems with modern society is that all the stupid people in our culture continue to breed and then indoctrinate their children with their horrific, morally bankrupt worldview. Fortunately for all of us, actress and pop star Miley Cyrus has decided to forego procreating until someone finally steps up to the plate and does something to bring the crisis of climate change to an end. This is probably her best contribution to society at this point. via TheBlaze: In a recent interview with Elle, the former “Hannah Montana” actress said that she wants to wait to have children until said children could “live on an earth with fish in the water.” In addition to climate change and parenting, she also touched upon feminism and marriage. “When [Mother Earth] is angry, don’t f*** with her,” Cyrus warned. “That’s the way I feel women are like right now. The earth is angry.” “We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women,” she insisted. “We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece of s**t planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.” “We don’t want to reproduce because we know that the earth can’t handle it,” she added. Cyrus later went on to detail her marriage with Hemsworth. “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married,” she reasoned. “But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in…
