Equal pay does not allow anyone to rise up to higher pay; equal pay means one must never be paid more than another because that is unfair to those not being paid more.
Ladies, if any of you are incompetent, you do not deserve to be paid more or to keep your job. You deserve to be fired.
If women lack skills necessary to rise up to higher pay, those women do not deserve to be paid the same as someone with better skills and talent, receiving higher pay. If you want to receive higher pay, you must get on-the-job skills, or other training, and work your way up to that higher pay, if not, shut up and accept your low wages.
No one receiving low wages receives low wages because they have exceptional skills, they receive low wages either because they are working at a minimum wage job that is meant only to be a stepping stone to better jobs with better pay, or, they are receiving low wages because they are at the entry-level where one must work up to a higher position with high pay.
That’s not only life, that is the free market and it is why the free market has worked so well for centuries: It allows for competition between employees who can take what they have naturally and hone their skills and work their way up to more money and a better life. Free markets competition also allows business owners to compete against each other by perfecting services and products. This in turn serves the people with goods they need, as well as want, and the more goods created and sold, the more money for businesses, and that leads to hiring more employees.
Equal pay destroys competition and jobs and that destroys the economy and lessons financial growth overall.
But isn’t that the entire idea behind equal pay? Make everyone the same, don’t allow anyone to rise above another or have more than others. It’s not fair if some get rich while others are do not. It’s not fair if a man earns more than a woman, even if she works part-time at excellent pay because she is raising children. Notice part-time work at excellent pay for mothers is not unequal pay, it’s simply women working fewer hours because they a family to take care of.
If a woman works full-time and receives less than the men at her job, perhaps she should work at gaining more skills to rise up to a hirer paid position. If she has, but still finds she is not getting paid what she wants, then apply to a another company offering better pay—while obtaining more skills to gain more money.
Believe it or not ladies, it’s not a man’s world, because men and women live in this world and both genders were created equal in liberty by God.
Sorry if this fact hurts ladies, but God did create man first, which I don’t see as a problem since God said man needed us women, because “it was not good for man to be alone.”
Wake up women, God did not create us unequal to men, God did not make us subservient slaves to men—evil tyrants men history decided women are inferior, not God. Again: God created all mankind equal in liberty. Yes, men were created physically stronger and are be the protectors of women (even feminists run to men when they need help against rapists and other violent criminals), but notice in Genesis that God said men need us women to help them, to take care of them!
Notice the word “needed.” Men need us. Instead of whining, why not use that to our advantages and work harder at being needed in the workforce, by the company we’re in or want to be in. Then use that helping know-how God gave us women as a bargaining tool to show we are fabulous helpers.
Hey, men do it all the time with their skills, and they do it without running to the federal government, crying like sissies for help.
Furthermore, women have an advantage over men and it’s the reason men say “I don’t understand women:” We women are the missing link of all men. We were created out of the man’s rib, and men, poor darlings, they never got it back! Men are missing what God gave us women! We understand men, but they can’t understand us, because we have their rib!
Get the Memo whining feminists who claim you’re being treated oh so unfair in the so-called man’s world you insist on working in while demanding equal pay to men: Stop whining like little girls and learn how to compete without demanding the federal government get involved in all of our private lives and hindering us by passing laws that force men to comply with men-hating women or face criminal charges that involve everything and anything to do with sex.
Grow up and start seeing yourselves as the great helpers in the workforce instead of behaving like trampled little weaklings, and maybe, just maybe, those horrid, brutish men you poor, weakened feminists claim are picking on you will respect you and invite you to compete.
Work hard and your hard work and gained skills will pay off. Either that or put up and shut up so the rest of us can get on with our work!
Contemporary Christian Music Is Not About Praise and Worship, It’s About Secularizing God with Entertainment
I’m going to offend many readers, especially Christians, with my criticism of contemporary Christian music in America’s churches, and I don’t care.
When it comes to God, I care more about worshiping God than being entertained, but secularizing God in order to cater to younger generations and basket-fillers, who might, heaven forbid, become bored by God, is far more preferable. And profitable.
If I want to be entertained by rock music, which I love and listen to, I’ll go to rock concerts or listen to my stereo. Church and worship is just for that: Glorifying God, not entertaining a church “audience.”
But the majority of Contemporary Christian Music is about entertainment, not God.
Seriously people, “Christian Rap,” “Christian Hip-Hop,” and Christian Rock?” That’s the biggest oxymoron since the phrase “soft porn” was invented to legitimize the porn and sex trafficking industry.
I am not saying, and never would, that Christians and churches do not have First Amendment rights, they do, we all do. I’m giving my opinion, and in my opinion Christian rock bands screaming at the top of their lungs to heavy metal Judas Priest-style music and rap music is not praising God, it’s all about entertaining this modern-day generation that finds God too harsh–He killed off humanity with a flood because the entire world was comprised of murderous, child-sacrificing thugs who were having homosexual and incestuous sex with each other and children and animals? How homophobic can God get!
Then there’s that Christian music that is just too stodgy and old-fashioned for hip young ears who shouldn’t be bored–or offended: Traditional hymns and Negro spirituals that glorify and praise God, while lifting people’s hearts from depression and hurt and healing the soul.
Why would we want broken hearts and minds mended when warming benches with attractive and kool people who fill baskets is far more important than soul saving?
The modern-day American church has gone the way of left-wing politics in its “let’s not offend anyone” preaching and part of that is the modern church music that is is no different than modern-day, watered-down progressive preaching in America’s churches.
No matter how music companies try to package and sell rap and hip-hop as worship music, it’s not about glorifying God with song as God’s Word tells us in the Psalms. The Contemporary Christian music industry is a mega music industry. Music companies don’t give a flip about God, they’re selling this style of music in Christian genre as a way to further destroy God in America.
If you don’t think so, listen to most of the contemporary Christian music: It is loaded with loud banging drums and blaring guitars that override praise words to God that are shouted at you no different than secular music. Why? So Your mind is not focused on God and praising Him; your mind is only focused on the sound of rock instruments that get your body moving instead of your spirit.
Nothing’s worse than so-called church praise and worship leaders and bands who go off into voodoo-like frenzies, shaking and convulsing crazily to drum beating you hear on Caribbean islands and in Voodoo churches, or rap music stations, not to mention those wanna’ be rock stars who use the pulpit to shake their rear-ends like Mick Jagger.
Nothing’s worse than standing in church and watching praise bands perform for you. Excuse me if I so foolishly assumed Sunday church music time was meant to worship God, not be entertained by “American Idol: The Pulpit.”
If I want to watch Voodoo shaking (I’m not talking about spirit-filled, joyful dancing to Godly music) I’ll turn on the Discovery Channel and watch documentaries on Voodoo churches.
Sadly that is becoming intermingled in the modern-day church because of the contemporary music industry that mixes everything to appeal to everyone—except God.
Sorry all ye offended, but its modern-day Baal worship wrapped nicely in the phrase “Contemporary Christian Music.”
Entertainment has been used for years to pull people away from God, and over the last 20 years, the contemporary Christian music industry has been using rock, rap and hip hop to invade kid’s minds with a message that is not God.
Churches that cater to their young flock with this music are not interested in kids knowing God any more than record companies: Again, they are only interested in filling benches and baskets.
Yes, there are modern-day Christian songs out there that truly glorify God with contemporary and old-style hymns and spirituals. Think Phil Wickham’s “You’re Beautiful,” opera tenor Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up,” Gaither Vocal Band’s Guy Penrod’s “The Baptism of Jesse Taylor,” and Mark Lowry’s “Mary Did You Know,” to name just a few.
Are these four men selling and making millions on their albums? Of course, and they should. God did not give them their talents to use in order that they would starve in the streets, but if people want to be in God’s ministry, ministering to people through music or books, etc, don’t secularize it to sell it or it’s not Christian ministry, it’s just Hollywood.
Sadly many pastors today do not care that their churches have become entertainment theaters. If they are questioned about the praise and worship not being just that, these pastors reply, “if you don’t like the music, just leave, go somewhere else.” These are the same pastors who allow “the money-changers” in their churches, selling books, CD’s, etc. Never mind Jesus violently overturned the money changer’s tables, condemning anyone who does that, because the House of Worship is not about being a shopping center, it’s a place only for worship.
Oh I know, readers who listen to my radio show Rock N Roll Politics are saying, “Hey Lisa, you’re a hypocrite and a phony! You open your political shows with music by rock groups like “The Sex Pistols” and you call yourself Christian?” Yes, I’m a proud, out-spoken Born Again follower of Jesus Christ. And yes, I listen to rock, punk, country and opera, however, my radio show, blog site, as well as I, are not Christian ministries. I’m a political commentator and writer and my radio show uses music as the backdrop, because much of music is political.
Despite what some readers are no doubt thinking, I’m far from legalistic. Legalism is not Jesus, legalism is man using God to control man. But I know there is a time and place for all things, and church is neither the time nor place to be entertained. You go to church to worship God, not be entertained by wanna’ be rock stars.
Progressives have been slowly pulling Americans away from God and they have found a weapon to destroy God in America through secular-style music that has invaded the church.
Make church entertaining with hip music and the younger generation will become more and more secular, opening up to accepting homosexuality and gay marriage, teen sex and drugs, and rejecting God’s Word and laws Jesus “did not come to abolish,” and that we “are to meditate on day and night.”
Contemporary Christian music is not about praising God; it’s about making sure this generation will never know God or His Word and society will go the way of the Canaanites.
