Another Laughably Ridiculous NFL Affirmative Action Hire

With the Detroit Lions being pilloried by football fans everywhere for their ludicrous hiring of the completely underwhelming Jim Caldwell as their new head coach, an old bit of hilarity crept back into my mind.

Caldwell previously served as head coach (read: Peyton Manning's Applauder in Chief / guarantor of the Andrew Luck NFL Draft Golden Ticket) from 2009-2011. Of course Manning was running the show on an offense that he learned under Tom Moore for over a decade before Caldwell even hit town, but the man did have one seemingly easy responsibility that he managed to botch in such a horrific way that it ended the team's season in 2010.

So given that introduction and without further ado, let's go right to what has always been one of the all-time howlers for me. The following quote is taken verbatim from Caldwell's Biography page on the official Indianapolis Colts' website and dates back to his tenure there. Honestly, I do believe it is THE single funniest thing I have ever seen (or heard of or read of or whatever) on a resume in my entire life:

Caldwell spent 1993-2000 as head coach at Wake Forest.  In 1999, Caldwell led the school to its first winning season and bowl game since 1992.

Hot damn, if that doesn't sum up affirmative action in a nutshell right there!

How can anyone be expected to take a man seriously who lists such a thing under his accomplishments?

It's a quite amazing world we live in now that we've left deeds behind and jumped on board the emotional "equality" caravan. The standards are literally below bottom floor now. They can be twisted and defined any way one likes because they are not substantial or real anymore.

It is a terrible, corrosive mindset that demands that a society must not judge an individual by his actions or achievements because there are supposedly higher purposes served by his artificial advancement to positions of importance that he does not deserve to hold.

It is a mindset that will affect much more than who coaches a professional football team.

It is a mindset that is going to damage us all.

Oh Why Oh Why Is the Church So Cruel?

What a shock to read of this after decades of being told how wonderful yet another modern thread woven into the magic carpet ride of Progress was:

Women who give birth after IVF treatment are up to five times as likely to suffer from serious complications, researchers have found.
The most comprehensive study of its kind concluded that babies born as a result of fertility treatment are more likely to be severely underweight, stillborn, born prematurely or die only a few weeks after birth.
Scientists analysed records from more than 300,000 births that took place in Australia between 1986 and 2002.

This latest and exhaustive study reflects what we are just beginning to learn about this practice. The findings are not encouraging:

An article just published in the highly respected journal Fertility and Sterility ought to give anyone thinking about using “test tube” baby technology pause. A review of 124,000 children born through two very common infertility treatments -- in vitro fertilization, creating embryos in a dish and transferring them to a womb and ICSI, in which a single sperm is injected directly into an egg -- showed large increase in the risk of having a child with a birth defect. The risk was 37 percent higher than that seen in children made the old fashioned way. That is a huge number.

Yet we have to endure mindless, emotionally overwrought lectures from the contemporary sheep who have fallen for all of the comforting modernist lies. They hammer away at us with the old saw that the Roman Catholic Church is so cruel, so heartless, so backwards in its thinking because it frowns on unnatural acts (for that is what this is -- an act willingly done by human beings) such as IVF.

Just as with the emotionally-hysterical homosexuals, once again we have people so wrapped up in their immediate quest for what they want at the moment that they adamantly refuse to consider that there may be unhappy consequences to themselves and others as a result of their unnatural acts.

What can possibly be more cruel than bringing a sickly, under-developed baby into this world just because you "want one"?

Oh yeah, I forgot, they can always be aborted if it looks like the little possession isn't gonna turn out exactly like we want it.

Bet that sadistic Catholic Church frowns on refusing delivery of damaged parcels too!
