Does my occasional kindness make a difference? Time might tell.
The rude, nasty girls especially often attract this old chap's attention !
Don't get me wrong here. Hahaha. Once they were charming little girls, the apple of a daddy's eye: and something went awry when they hit puberty. They got stuck in immaturity coupled with their growing sense of sexual power and hubris, and of course, breasts. These pretty, bodily, defining accessories became weapons when taken in hand ('scuse the pun) by feminists.
I was very pleasantly surprised when Steven Ertelt dropped by to tell of the Wonderous Ways my Supplier has of making some 'Good' out of the bad. What lesson can be learned from what he had to say?
We may hate the actions of 'pro-choice' people, for example, spouting their 'My Body, My Choice' mantras, and may especially find the screetches and actions of groups like Femen to be terrible, but we must not hate the people. God has work to do with them, by them and for them. Our task is to Love them and pray for His Grace that changes their ways. Cold and hot drinks are a small way of us expressing that Love.
You have heard of Femen? From Wiki.....
Founded 10 April 2008; 10 years ago
Type Protest and activist group
Focus Women's liberation
Paris, France (main headquarters)
Key people Anna Hutsol, Oksana Shachko, Alexandra Shevchenko, Inna Shevchenko (that is Inna, pictured at the top), Yana Zhdanova.... and in South America, Sara Fernanda Giromin, also known as Sara Winter
Femen (Ukrainian: Фемен), stylized as FEMEN, is a Ukrainian radical feminist activist group intended to protect women's rights. The organization became internationally known for organizing controversial topless protests against sex tourism, religious institutions, sexism, homophobia, and other social, national, and international topics. Founded in Ukraine, the group is now based in Paris.
The organization describes itself as "fighting patriarchy in its three manifestations – sexual exploitation of women, dictatorship and religion" and has stated that its goal is "sextremism serving to protect women's rights". Femen activists have been regularly detained by police in response to their protests.
Initially, Femen gained attention by demonstrating in skimpy or erotic clothing. For example, on 21 September 2008 in front of a Turkish embassy, a dozen Femen members were dressed as nurses with smudged makeup and high pink heels; however, at the 24 August 2009 demonstration on Ukrainian independence day, Oksana Shachko went topless.
The main driveresse of the group, Inna Shevchenko, a quite pretty girl, has made her position clear in an interview. It is really a collections of 'half-truths' mixed with immature understandings and lots of wild, unfocussed blame, but hey, don't let my opinion stop you forming your own. She was someone's little girl once.
Since this approach obtained such great publicity, it rapidly became FEMEN's signature approach. While most of the protests have been confined to bare breasts, in October 2010 Shachko exposed her buttocks outside a locked toilet in a demonstration to protest the lack of public toilets in Kiev, and four of the group members staged a similar protest in Kiev in February 2011.
Femen protest in Kiev during the 2010 Ukrainian presidential election against the election of Victor Yanukovych. The signs read "The War Begins Today" and "Stop Raping the Country." Since May 2011, a host of international news outlets have started to report about the organization's actions; this has sharply heightened FEMEN's international profile.
From late 2011, the Ukrainian Femen activists started to hold more international protests. In December 2011, three Femen activists stated that the State Security Committee of the Republic of Belarus had abducted and terrorized them after they staged topless protests in Minsk. On 8 April 2013, five Femen members "topless ambushed" Russian President Vladimir Putin (accompanied by German Chancellor Angela Merkel) at the Hanover trade fair.
After Inna Shevchenko chopped down a wooden cross overlooking Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kiev on 17 August 2012, she stated that she had received several death threats and that her front door had been kicked in. Fearing arrest, she sought asylum in France and moved to Paris. There, in September 2012, she established a training facility for activists for Femen in France.
Hey, apart from cutting down crosses, protesting against the Church, protesting for a woman's 'right' to murder babies, and bailing up a few politicians, what is there to dislike about these ladies? They are spunkey, loud and damnably funny at times and often quite nice to look at. Ok, gawp at, by some.
So, Steve told us of one leading breast, Sara Fernanda Giromin, who has found a better purpose for herself and her mammaries.
Founder of Feminist Group That Goes Topless to Protest Abortion Becomes Pro-Life, Apologizes
Chances are you’ve heard of the pro-abortion feminists who protest topless for abortion at The Vatican or infiltrate Catholic Churches to push their radical abortion agenda. In Spain, once time, as the Spanish government pushes a pro-life proposal to roll back some of Europe’s most pro-abortion laws, extreme feminists from Femen showed their anger by hurling objects at Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela as he attempted to enter a local Catholic Church before Mass.
In October, the the violent mob of Femen abortion activists attempted to desecrate an Argentine cathedral and threw stones and bottles at Catholics praying the rosary in front of the church on Sunday.Now, shockingly, the founder of the Brazilian chapter of Femen has become pro-life and is apologizing for her actions. Here’s a report from Red Alert Politics:
Sara Fernanda Giromin, also known as Sara Winter, was not merely feminist. She was the founder of Femen Brazil in 2012 and later of Bastardxs. Both groups gained nation and worldwide attention for their angry bare-chested protests.Winter is reportedly upset with how the feminist movement “uses women as objects” and “covers up pedophilia in its ranks.” While Sara’s own religious beliefs are not clear, she did apologize to Christians and referred to feminism as “a religious sect.”I saw the feminist movement cover up for PEDOPHILES. I saw the feminist movement PERSECUTE WOMEN … I am a witness to the fact that today in the feminist movement women are not of any importance but serve as fuel for the fires of hatred that the feminist sect cannot allow to die.Fortunately, Winter is now pro-life.There are still reasons to celebrate, other than Sara having a complete change of heart three years later. She has not only denounced and exposed feminism, but is pro-life.
Sara aborted her first child, but gave birth to her second, a son. It was he who helped her change her attitude on abortion. In October she repented and asked for forgiveness. She also implored “women who are desperate to abort” to “think carefully about it.” Sara was “very sorry I did it” and spoke of how “I don’t want the same for you.”A report in The Blaze has more on Winter, whose real name is Sara Fernanda Giromin, recanting her pro-abortion views.“I have repented of having had an abortion and today I ask for forgiveness,” Giromin wrote, claiming that after the birth of her baby, “life has taken on a new meaning.”“Please, women who are desperate to abort, think carefully about it. I was very sorry I did it. I don’t want the same for you,” she added.In a YouTube video published earlier this month, Giromin, who founded Femen Now at age 19, apologized to Christians for her past transgressions.
What she is saying, in brief, is ......On 04/10/14, I and another activist from the Coleção Bastardas organized a feminist protest in front of the Candelária Church in Rio de Janeiro. The purpose of the act was to protest against the homophobic statements of the presidential candidate of the republic Levy Fidelix.
Sadly, letting me get carried away by extremism, I ended up offending thousands of religious and non-religious people.
Now I come here with all the humility of the world to ask for forgiveness.
(ps: Dark circles are indicative of who has small baby.)
I suspect someone took her a kindly drink one time when she was protesting. But more likely, IMHO, the men who were saying the Rosary outside the Cathedral were praying for her.Winter is proof that, like so many other pro-life advocates who have come from the ranks of the abortion industry over the years, even the hardest heart can be softened.
Have a cool drink.
Love the little ones. They will grow big and some bent out of shape by destructive winds.
Pray for them.
