God And The Speaker Care About Yor Sex Life November 11, 2023 The Speaker of the House is no fan of — in his words — “the so-called separation of church and state.” Indeed, reports Rolling Stone, he “has ties to the far-right New Apostolic Reformation — which is hell-bent on turning America into a religious state.” Is he the right man to be second in line to the presidency? The Key to Mike Johnson’s Christian Extremism Hangs Outside His Office will help you decide. On December 29, 2020 — eight days before the insurrection — Sheets and his team of prophets were in Washington, D.C., staying at the Willard Hotel, the site of the various war rooms overseen by Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon. On that day, Sheets, along with 14 other apostles and prophets, had a multi-hour meeting inside the White House with Trump administration officials. Who exactly among White House Staff attended this meeting is unclear (and the Trump administration has made the White House Visitor Logs secret and invulnerable to FOIA requests until 2026). But members of Sheets’ team posted photos of themselves (with White House visitor passes) both outside and inside the building. The Appeal to Heaven flag was the banner of this mobilization, which brings us back to Mike Johnson and the flag outside his office. What does it signal that the speaker of the House of Representatives is purposely flying this symbol of Christian warfare? And then there’s his wife and podcast partner Kelly, whose Onward Christian Counseling Services, the Huffington Post reports . . . . . . is grounded in the belief that sex is offensive to God if it is not between a man and a woman married to each other. It puts being gay, bisexual or transgender in the same category as someone who has sex with animals. “We believe and the Bible teaches that any form of sexual immorality, such as adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, pornography or any attempt to change one’s sex, or disagreement with one’s biological sex, is sinful and offensive to God,” says the eight-page business document. . . . TAX-SELLING BARGAINS? Sometimes this works. You look for stocks so beaten down as the end of the year approaches that folks may be selling to lock in their loss “no matter the price.” That can lead to irrationally low prices — an opportunity for us. Or not. Sometimes, those stocks just keep falling until all that’s left is a bad memory. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed, and suffered, both. (I had one that eventually jumped 40 fold, which made up for a lot of losers.) Two I bought more of Friday are HYMC, at 18 cents, down from its $16 July, 2020 high; and OPRT, at $2.50, down from $27. The first has cash and gold that might (might!) prove to be worth a lot more than its debt; the second has been the victim of bad management that might (might!) get replaced with good management. Only, needless to say, with money you can truly afford to lose.
