The Oppressed

The staff was “unsafe.” LMFAO

Look, we all know how to translate the Woke’ Left’s hysterical accusation of a small group who “seeks to deprive women and LGBTQ+ persons of their basic human rights.”

The group was pro-life and not in support of gay marriage.

THAT is what made the staff of so unsafe.

Now we know why everyone struggles so mightily when asked to provide evidence that the LGB community is oppressed. The Woke Left’s idea of oppression is the mere existence of differing viewpoints. Given their intellectual and moral weakness, they have to cancel those viewpoints. It’s the only thing they are good at.

  1. The woke world is a narcissistic psychopath’s playground. It will ultimately destroy itself. The only question is how much of Western culture will be taken down with it.

  2. They just didn’t want to serve assholes; you know, your people. I wouldn’t want to serve your tribe either.

    Christian, my ass, Michael. There’s nothing about your behavior that suggests you are a follower of Jesus.

  3. Doug says:

    To spell it out: “oppression” for these folk is the potential encounter of an opinion that they disagree with. And nobody can argue, because *that* “oppression” is their “lived experience.”

    Dr. David Tee > They just didn’t want to serve assholes; you know, your people. I wouldn’t want to serve your tribe either.

    Looking at your website posts, I judge the restaurant staff wouldn’t knowingly serve you, either; that your views, too, would be offensive and repugnant to them.

    Or is the website linked to by clicking on your handle not yours?

    Dr. David Tee is obviously a model Christian, and we should all listen to him lecture us on appropriate Christian behaviour. Just curious, though: how did you determine that they were “assholes?” All we know about them from this post is that they were “pro-life” on the abortion issue and against homosexual marriage. Is holding to those positions sufficient to qualify one as an asshole, or is it only a problem if one gets politically active about it?

    I have additional questions on how one might follow Christ’s model for dealing with assholes, but let’s clarify the criteria first: what qualifies one as an asshole?

  6. Yes, I am a model Christian (most days). Filled with the Holy Ghost, I walk in holiness, godliness, and truth. I call on the readers of this blog to show the fruit 🍎 of the Spirit to the world, and not hatred and bigotry. They will know we are Christians by our love, not our hatred and contempt for people we disagree with. This site is known for its ill-bred behavior towards LGBTQ people and atheists. To what end? Love ❤️ is what will reach people for Jesus.

    I say these things in love. To HIM be all glory, honor, and praise.

    Dr. T

  7. What are you a doctor of, Mr T?

    Christian, my ass, Michael. There’s nothing about your behavior that suggests you are a follower of Jesus.

    Your opening response displays aggression and ill-bred hatred and bigotry; it amounts to a series of playground jeers, seemingly mindless accusations that are entirely unsupported.

    Your second response continues in the same vein.

    > Filled with the Holy Ghost, I walk in holiness, godliness, and truth. … fruit[s] of the Spirit … love…

    Not on the evidence of your two posts.

    Christian, my ass, Dr. David Tee, whose real name is Derrick Thomas Thiessen. There’s nothing about your behavior here that suggests you are a follower of Jesus.

    I know a guy who whipped people out of the temple and went on an epic rant against the local religious leadership, calling them “whitewashed tombs”, and telling them that Satan was their father. I take it that he needs to learn some Christian love too?

    You responded to my “model Christian” comment without answering my question about what qualifies one as an ‘asshole,’ so I’ll take that as a sign of bad faith. Feel free to correct that if you care, but I see no further reason to engage a wolf in ill-fitting sheep’s clothing.

    He has a PHD in pitying the fool.

  11. pennywit says:

    From what I can see:

    * Family Foundation is a standard-issue right-wing evangelical group. They dislike abortion, same-sex marriage, marijuana dispensaries, and gambling.

    * Metzger doesn’t look like much special to me. It’s a restaurant that serves German food.

    * In my opinion, the restaurant discriminated against Family on the basis of political opinion, not religious beliefs. The former is legal under Virginia law; the latter is not.

    * Whether the restaurant’s action was legal is a separate question from whether it’s decision was wise or moral.

    I’m not going to get terribly worked up over this. The incident has had its 48-72 hour in the national political rage spin cycle. It’s time to add some fabric softener and move on to the next load.

    Yes, I am a model Christian (most days). Filled with the Holy Ghost, I walk in holiness, godliness, and truth.

    I’m reminded of a few passages. Jesus would not refer to himself as being good, but gave all glory to God. Paul referred to himself as the chief of sinners and a wretched man, but said the righteousness of Christ is the gift of God through the Spirit. Again, all glory to God, and not his own conduct. “That which I would, that I do not”, and so on.

    A Pharisee thanks God that he is not like other men.

    Basically, people who refer to themselves as being holy probably aren’t.

    Speaking of Pharisees, who are routinely condemned for hypocrisy:

    I call on the readers of this blog to show the fruit of the Spirit to the world, and not hatred and bigotry. They will know we are Christians by our love, not our hatred and contempt for people we disagree with

    This goes well with:

    They just didn’t want to serve assholes; you know, your people. I wouldn’t want to serve your tribe either.

    Christian, my ass, Michael. There’s nothing about your behavior that suggests you are a follower of Jesus.

    So it seems you reserve the fruit of the spirit for unbelievers, and choose to hurl insults and accusations at believers on a public website when you disagree with their conduct.

    But it’s okay because, as you say:

    I say these things in love…assholes; you know, your people.

    Here’s some background information. Amazon tells us that:

    Dr. David Tee holds degrees in Theology, Church History and Archaeology and has been an educator for many years.

    https://www.amazon.com/Archaeology-Unwary-Believer-Dr-David/dp/1456519832/

    There’s no claim there of a Doctorate, I observe from his responses here that he doesn’t display the intellectual weight of someone capable of attaining to an academic doctorate, and while I fully expect Amazon would correct the record should anyone provide evidence that “Tee”/Thiessen has lied about attaining to the three ordinary — ordinary — degrees he there claims (and why would he not boast a Doctorate if he could) they are his own claim, parroted, not Amazon’s.

    Amazon accepts biographies submitted, there’s no indication of checks:

    Are you an author?
    Help us improve our Author Pages by updating your bibliography and submitting a new or current image and biography.

    https://www.amazon.com/kindle-dbs/entity/author/B00JESIJRU

    “Tee”/Thiessen says he’s currently a freelance writer, and he has definitely written six books in the last decade or so (which have attracted between them but two Amazon reviews/ratings — draw your own conclusions from that); and he authors two blogs. He is (or was) an educator: in the ‘About’ of the sister blog there’s:

    This website is the outlet of a simple man who likes simple things. In its pages will be the different books and articles that are for sale. The owner works as a freelance writer currently but he has had previous careers as a preacher and as an English teacher in Korea.

    https://theoarch.wordpress.com/about/

    (That’s English as in, English as a Second Language (ESL); it’s get-by basic English, taught from scratch, taught to those lacking even basic English.)

  14. If he has degrees in those three subjects then presumably he has a record of published papers and works in reputable academic journals and institutions?

  15. Dhay says:

    nihilist2christian > If he has degrees in those three subjects then presumably he has a record of published papers and works in reputable academic journals and institutions?

    This might answer that. It’s long, it’s very informative, and I think you’ll find it very interesting:

    His “doctorate” is from a paper mill. He has never, to my knowledge, submitted to a curriculum created by any accredited institution.

    https://brucegerencser.net/2022/06/is-dr-david-tee-actually-derrick-thomas-thiessen/

    It took me a while to find this, largely because of how persistently Theissen seems to have trolled Bruce Gerencser (who popped up here, briefly, a while back), so there was a lot to skim through.

  16. TFBW says:

    A thing to note about Dr T is that he’s using a veneer of Christian morality to convince Christians to embrace secular morality. He’s accusing Christian activists of being “assholes” on no other grounds than they’ve taken a position which is opposed to the popular worldly/woke positions. Popular secular morality has it (among other things) that abortion is good, being gay or trans is good, and being racist is the worst of all evils, so much so that you can’t even lay claim to goodness through mere non-racism, but must be “anti-racist.” He is promoting the subordination of Christian morality to Progressive morality. As such, I double down on my “wolf in sheep’s clothing” remark. He is the kind of false teacher we were warned about.

    Indeed. When I first read the comment, I thought it was a standard attack response from a woke atheist. So I approved it and wasn’t planning on responding. But then I read your comment and went to checked out his web page. How could my original impression of him being a woke atheist be so wrong?

    I never heard of a Dr. Tee before, so I googled and found this page:

    https://brucegerencser.net/2022/01/r-i-p-dr-david-tee/

    So Dr. Tee is a fake, sock puppet with years of history arguing with a small subset of internet atheists. But again, why would he lash out at me with such hostility?

    Then I thought the name of his nemesis sounded familiar – so I searched this blog site and found:
    https://shadowtolight.wordpress.com/2022/01/27/atheist-denies-secular-privilege/
    https://shadowtolight.wordpress.com/2022/01/30/an-example-of-how-an-atheist-responds-after-being-corrected/

    Bruce! Now he would be someone that would be bothered by my blog posting. Hmmm. Could our Dr. Tee actually be Bruce?

    I mean, notice the hostility in the first comment:

    They just didn’t want to serve assholes; you know, your people. I wouldn’t want to serve your tribe either.
    Christian, my ass, Michael. There’s nothing about your behavior that suggests you are a follower of Jesus.

    It continues into the second comment:

    I call on the readers of this blog to show the fruit of the Spirit to the world, and not hatred and bigotry. They will know we are Christians by our love, not our hatred and contempt for people we disagree with. This site is known for its ill-bred behavior towards LGBTQ people and atheists.

    Now, who is more likely to express such hostility and bitterness toward me? The supposed evangelical I have never heard of before but who has a two year history of arguing against atheist Bruce Gerencser and his atheist friends? Or the guy who once wrote:

    Michael……spends his days raging against atheism…….Michael whines and complains about his flavor of Christianity not being given preferential treatment…… I have read Michael’s blog for years. My words simply reflect how I view his writing. – Bruce Gerencser

    Again, could Dr. Tee (the author of the two comments above) be Bruce Gerencser? Easy to test. Bruce is very open and public about his location. His web page claims: “Bruce Gerencser, 65, lives in rural Northwest Ohio.”

    Well, what’s the IP address of the person who posted (twice) as Dr. David Tee above?

    Northwest Ohio.

    Yep, Bruce’s arch enemy posted on this site from his neighborhood.

    Like I said, Bruce has battled Dr. Tee for years on his blog. Makes you wonder if it was all one big puppet show. LOL.

  18. So this guy created a sock puppet to be his own personal nemesis and published books under its name? Is he an atheist pretending to be a fundamentalist-in-a-bad-way Christian or vice versa?

  19. Michael says:

    Don’t know. All I can say as a matter of empirical fact is this – the IP address for the two comments by “Dr David Tee” above is Northwest Ohio.

  20. TFBW says:

    I see no guarantee that the person posting here as “Dr. David Tee” has any relationship with the website to which he links or the name itself. It’s possible that someone with a beef against that website owner (and a contempt for truth) is impersonating him as an attack on his reputation. My responses are to the comments here, and in no way rely on the author’s true identity or association with other writings.

  21. Nuke says:

    Not gonna lie, after reading those “Dr. Tee” comments and then some of the blog posts on the linked website, I was more than a little befuddled. Seemed to be bizarre statements from someone who appears to write in accordance with orthodoxy on his blog, and from what I could tell, nothing so blatantly vitriolic, even towards those who would be enemies outside the faith (like Bruce).

    But a sock puppet post from an apostate preacher to try and tarnish one of the few Christian men that bothers to pay attention to him and his Satanic work? Seems a bit more plausible.

    Especially given this post by the the real David Thiessen on Bruce:

    https://theologyarchaeology.wordpress.com/2022/12/09/know-your-audience/

    Very gracious, not a hint of hatred, encouraging others to do good to the man. Even as this Bruce has insinuated that Derrick Theissen has committed some sordid acts of some kind or other (for which he supposedly fled the country). But if indeed “Dr. David Tee” posts from NW Ohio, and by Bruce’s own admission, Derrick Thiessen resides outside the US, it appears that Michael has evidence that “Dr. David Tee” is a sock used by Bruce to attempt to assassinate Derrick Thiessen’s character.

  22. Nuke says:

    I just had another thought on this. Perhaps the first comment was intended to be posted from Bruce’s account, but he accidently used a sock account. Hence the bizarrely out of character nature of the comment for a supposedly fundamentalist Christian (“your tribe” especially). Then having made the mistake, he doubled down with the holy roller talk to deflect and make it seem intentional.

    From the posts I read on https://theologyarchaeology.wordpress.com/, the language in the second post reads as almost comically pious in comparison. Some anecdotes that stick out to me:

    1. The use of the name “Holy Ghost” rather than “Holy Spirit”. A quick search of Thiessen’s blog shows that he only has one post since 2017 with “Holy Ghost” in it (in 2022), in which he was quoting something Bruce said. The other appearances on his blog also appear to be when he quotes other material not his own. He appears to use the name “Holy Spirit” in his own writings, and this occurring frequently on his blog.

    2. The truly bizarre “call” to stop “hatred and bigotry” towards “LGBTQ people and atheists”. We’ve heard an awful lot of that kind of language lately, and I think it’s far more likely to be coming from the guy wearing rainbow suspenders than the fundamentalist. Further, the guy that runs a theology/archeology blog notes that Michael’s website is known for “ill-bred behavior towards LGBTQ people and atheists”? Really? Doubtful.

    3. A minor note, but still, the emojis just make it seem that much more hamfisted.

    4. The “Dr. T” at the end. On his blog, he appears to only rarely sign his name at the end, and I have only found “Dr. David Tee” or “Dr. David T”. Not a strong evidence, but it seems off. The comments by “Dr. David Tee” on Bruce’s blog never appear to have a name signed at the end of the comment.

    I’d reach out to Tee or Thiessen or whatever his name is at this point for comment, but I can’t find a good email address or comment section on his blog. It seems that posts under the name “Dr. David Tee” on Bruce’s blog are genuine, as he would have probably written a post about fake comments using his name on his own blog, and I found nothing of the sort.

    I’ll add that when someone posts, the ‘Leave a Reply’ box asks for the responder’s Email, Name (or Handle) and Website. The responder can put whatever he or she likes in these boxes.

    In this response I could be pretend “Dr. David Tee” (but I won’t), pretend author of the ‘Theology Archaeology’ blog (I’ll do that on a once-off basis, warning provided, click my handle and see.) As in:
