  • Bedtime stories are cool, even if your parents are drunk.

    So sad all the glorious former Christendom is going down like this. Today’s UK is taking away even normal morality from children by indocrinating them to become homosexuals and transgenders. The English always need Christianity NOT to become suicidal. Pre-christian was a mere illiterate barbarism for them, but Post-christian is a Sodomic chaos for English people. The collapse has been rather fast. When will the English wake up? What is the use of possession of Mars if the children on Earth get ruined? The New Age social club of England should repent of teaching deadly falsehood and read the Holy Bible again and return to God.

      Do you even read the stories you comment on? This had precisely nothing to do with homosexual people or transgender people in particular, or anybody “indoctrinating” anyone into anything.

        British people used to be great and proper, not shameless addicts. Great Britain needs Jesus to be saved and Christian virtues to be great again. The West needs Christianity to regain honor and the meaning of life. Christless West does not seek a decent religion but just falls into destructive immorality. Children need proper Christian instructions to live like human beings. UK must not act smarter than the Biblical principles, in order to rescue their children. AAA was established by a Christian man.

    Self’s sin is slavery, not just being confined and used by human slave masters. White people can be liberated by reading the Holy Bible as colored people were. The truth works for all races. Universal literacy was established for every child to know the Word of God firsthand. The English kids should also read Westerminster Catechism, Frederick Douglass, and Dutch Resistance.

    The Western Europeans and all the residents in the former British colonies and their mimickers should stop mocking Christianity but start respecting God and valuing Christian virtues again. Man cannot prosper without Christian morality. Secularism brought only meaninglessness and self-destruction by infanticide and suicide and immorality, but Christianity brings the truth and life to everyone who hears and receives.

    Recommending or referring to a 12 Step program would probably trump bed time stories.
