The Bold Bovine: Art by Doug Giles

For those of you who’ve read the book the Leftists love to loathe, namely, The Bible, you know that King David went through more crap than Michael Moore’s colon. His brothers didn’t like him. King Saul sought to kill him and The Philistines weren’t big fans of his either. 

 

Later in life, because of his sin of bumping uglies with Bathsheba and having her old man offed, his own kid sought to dethrone him as a consequence of David’s dalliance.

Suffice in to say that his ‘walk with God’ was messy. 

 

David constantly needed God to bail him out and to come through in a big way with His supernatural power and boy howdy, did God ever show Himself mighty on David’s behalf! 

 

In Psalm 92:10 David said, ” … You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.”

 

King David said God made him akin to a … wild bull?

 

Yes, Dinky. David said God made him like a wild bull.

 

When’s the last time you’ve heard that preached at your Hipster Feelgood Church? Never I’m a guessin’.

 

In light of Psalm 92:10 I’m starting a series of oil paintings depicting both ancient and current wild bovines as a homage to Ps.92:10 and a reminder to my clients that when you get into deep doo-doo, don’t curl up in the fetal position and wet your big Christian diaper. Call out to God and ask Him to make you like a wild bull that kicks demonic ass.

COVID Closes Churches Across the Country on Christmas

Sad, but true.

Published

on

While America prepares for another COVID Christmas, the omicron variant is creating a whole new set of snarls for those looking to celebrate the season with friends and family.

Several of the world’s top health organizations have been steadily pushing back against the idea of gathering for the holidays, even as omicron’s symptoms remain on the milder side of things.  Airlines are gummed up as well, with staffing shortages casting a dark cloud over the usually-busy holiday travel season.

And now, in a move that feels more dismal than most, many churches are being forced to close their doors as well.

Many churches across the U.S. are canceling some or all in-person Christmas services amid yet another surge in COVID cases that have put a damper on people’s holidays for a second year.

Among those churches were Washington National Cathedral in the nation’s capital; St. John the Divine, the cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of New York; and the historic Old South Church in Boston.

The Rev. Nancy Taylor, senior minister of Old South, said the church was shifting its popular Christmas Eve service to online-only.

“While we cherish these guests under normal circumstances, these are not normal circumstances. We are prioritizing the health and safety of our volunteers and staff,” Taylor told The Associated Press. “We know how disappointing this is.”

And also…

Leaders of Washington National Cathedral said all services would be offered only remotely until Jan. 9, with no worshippers or visitors allowed in the cathedral.

“Given the spike in infections, I simply cannot justify gathering massive crowds as the public health situation worsens around us,” said the cathedral’s dean, the Very Rev. Randolph Marshall Hollerith.

The news comes as health experts have begun to wonder whether or not omicron is impervious to the use of masks; a possibility that could explain its rapid spread.

Online Conspiracy Theorists Push ‘Ritual Sacrifice’ Angle in Music Festival Massacre

The bizarre theory stems from Travis Scott’s apparent embrace of questionable imagery.

Published

on

On Saturday morning, a vast swath of the nation awoke to terribly tragic news out of Houston, Texas, where a number of concertgoers were killed and several more injured during Travis Scott’s Astroworld music festival.

Scott, a hip hop artist known for his provocative imagery and reckless crowd control procedures, continued to play during the massacre that left at least 8 dead.

Those deaths have largely been attributed to the enormous crowd trampling and crushing one another, but a frightening new piece of evidence is now coming to light.

Police investigating a deadly crush that killed eight at a Travis Scott-headlined festival in Houston say a crazed man injected at least one person with opioids during the chaos.

Houston Chief of Police Troy Finner made the shocking claim at a press conference Saturday after hours of rumors about the Astroworld Fest tragedy, and Mayor of Houston Sylvester Turner revealed the victims were aged between 14 and 27.

‘One of the narratives was that some individual was injecting other people with drugs. We do have a report of a security officer, according to the medical staff that was out and treated him last night,’ Houston Chief of Police Troy Finner said at Saturday’s conference.

‘He was reaching over to restrain or grab a citizen and he felt a prick in his neck.

‘He went unconscious, they administered Narcan. He was revived, and medical staff did notice a prick similar to a prick you would get if somebody was trying to inject,’ he added.

Furthermore, the imagery used by Scott, along with his seemingly uncaring attitude toward the chaos, had online conspiracy theorists fearing something supernatural was at work.

And while there is no actual evidence of this event being some sort of “ritual”, the theories being posited online will almost certainly continue to bolster the bizarre image that Scott has so willingly embraced.
