McAtee Gets in the Middle of a Catfight Between Two Female Michigan State Senators

For the past couple of days the National press has been going all orgiastic on a short speech that a State Senator from Royal Oak Michigan gave in her attempted rebuke of another Michigan State Senator (Theis) for Theis’ daring to say that  McMorrow was “outraged” that she can’t “groom and sexualize kindergarteners.”

I thought I would examine McMorrow — Dem (Royal Oak) response for which the National Press is fawning all over.

Begin McMorrow speech,

I didn’t expect to wake up yesterday to the news that Senator Lana Theis had, overnight, accused me BY NAME of grooming and sexualizing children – in an email fundraising for herself.

So I sat on it for a while wondering why me?

Then I realized.

I’m the biggest threat to your hollow, hateful scheme. Because you can’t claim that you’re targeting marginalized kids in the name of “parental rights” if another parent is standing up and saying no.

McAtee Responds,

1.) This is a classic example of “weak argument, pound pulpit.” It has not been established that Theis’ work was either hollow or hateful. McMorrow just denounces it as such with no proof. Neither does McMorrow prove that Theis is targeting marginalized kids in the name of “parental rights.” I’m sure that Theis would insist that she is defending straight children from becoming marginalized by those like McMorrow who have hollow and hateful schemes to target and attempt to marginalize straight children by her work to normalize perversity and deviancy.

2.) Next, the fact that some parent (McMorrow) disagrees with Theis and so stands up and says “no” to Theis doesn’t make McMorrow a threat. It just makes her one more person who is wrong who needs to be defeated in the public square.

3.) All politicians fund raise off of villains and bad guys. That is a time worn technique that is used by both sides. The idea that you’ve discovered some clandestine new fundraising technique is hilarious Sen. McMorrow. You are a villain and as such people are going to fund-raise off of you. It is the way the game is played and you know it.

Sen. McMorrow proceeds,

So then what? Then you dehumanize and marginalize ME. You say I’m one of THEM. You say she’s a groomer, she supports pedophilia, she wants children to believe they were responsible for slavery and to feel bad about themselves because they’re white.

Well here’s a little background on who I really am.

Bret responds,

Before we continue let’s keep in mind the McMorrow walked out of a prayer of Invocation that Theis gave. McMorrow was outraged over this segment of the prayer where she prayed,

“that children are “under attack” from “forces that desire things for them other than what their parents would have them see and hear and know.”

That this is true is why Sen. Theis has previously introduced anti-trans legislation that would require high schools to prohibit transgender boys from cisgender boys’ sports teams and transgender girls from cisgender girls’ teams. Does Sen. McMorrow support or oppose such legislation. I’m pushing my chips in on McMorrow opposing such legislation. As such she is a groomer. She is grooming children and adolescents to accept this type of perversity and deviance as being normal.

That’s it. That is what McMorrow was all outraged about when she walked out of Theis’ Invocation.

The fact of the matter is that children are under just such an attack. Now, allow me to insert here that if parents really were convinced of that the solution is as simple as taking their children out of government schools. Problem solved. Let McMorrow and the Democrats own the Government schools to do with what they please. The government schools have long ago been lost to both decency and learning and as such Theis should be calling for parents to just pull their children out of government schools.

McMorrow continues,

Growing up, my family was very active in our church. I sang in the choir. My mom taught CCD. One day, our priest called a meeting with my mom and told her that she was not living up to the church’s expectations, that she was disappointing. My mom asked why. Among other reasons, she was told it was because she was divorced, and because he didn’t see her with us at mass every Sunday.

Where was my mom on Sunday?

She was at a soup kitchen. With me.

McAtee responds,

All because I spend a lot of time at McDonalds that doesn’t make me a hamburger and all because McMorrow spend lots of time at Church with her Mommy that doesn’t make them Christian. Any woman who would be a Democrat is obviously no Christian.

And if the Priest saw you but not your Mom at Mass then obviously you weren’t with your Mom every Sunday at the soup kitchen. I suspect if the Priest was called forth as a witness on this matter his account would be considerably different than McMorrow’s account. Democrats have such an easy time with spinning the news.

McMorrow continues,

My mom taught me at a young age that Christianity and faith was about being a part of a community, about recognizing our privilege and blessings and doing what we could to be of service to others – especially people who were marginalized, targeted, who had less…often unfairly.

McAtee responds,

This only tells me that your Mom did you a disservice in explaining to you the meaning of Christianity. Christianity and faith is not primarily about being part of a community, etc. Christianity is about Jesus Christ atoning for your sins in a way that Mass only blasphemes.

Marxism also teaches about being a service to others (Just ask Orwell’s “Boxer”). Marxism especially emphasizes that those who are marginalized are so because it is all so “unfair.” However at the end of the day crypto-Marxism of the variety that McMorrow embraces is not Christianity no matter how much she wants to bleat about “the marginalized” the “targeted,” and the unfairness of life.

McMorrow continued,

I learned that SERVICE was far more important than performative nonsense like being seen in the same pew every Sunday or writing “Christian” in your Twitter bio and using it as a shield to target and marginalize already-marginalized people.

McAtee responds,

Well, it is quite true that attending Mass is performative nonsense though I’m sure your orthodox Roman Catholic Priest might think otherwise and so frown at Sen. McMorrow over that statement.

Second, I suspect that McMorrow’s bit about “writing ‘Christian’ in your Twitter bio and using it as a shield to target and marginalize already-marginalized people,” was a shot at Sen. Theis. Allow me to say that if McMorrow considers the perverse and the deviant as targeted and marginalized people as if that is a bad thing then Theis is right in her claim that McMorrow is a groomer.

The Christian faith teaches that people who are perverse and deviant as long as they insist in remaining perverse and deviant should be targeted and marginalized. There is no room among a people who are Christian to desire to mainstream deviancy or perverseness as normal. That is true even if the perverse and the deviant and their Senatorial supporters whine all day long about being targeted and marginalized. People who are resolved in staying in their perverseness and deviancy should be marginalized and targeted. They should be shoved back into the closet out of which they have slithered. Now, of course, should the perverse and the deviant desire to genuinely repent then no one should be allowed to marginalize or target them any longer.

But this is not what McMorrow wants. She wants to mainstream the targeted and marginalized. Her faith demands it. She wants to instead target and marginalized the Christian who opposes her support for mainstreaming deviancy. McMorrow is so full of hate she insists that we are the haters.

McMorrow spoke thus,

I also stand on the shoulders of people like Father Ted Hesburgh, the longtime president of the University of Notre Dame who was active in the civil rights movement, who recognized his power and privilege as a white man, a faith leader, and the head of an influential and well-respected institution – and who saw Black people in this country being targeted and discriminated against and beaten, and reached out and locked arms with Dr. Martin Luther King when he was alive, when it was unpopular and risky, and marching with them as a way to say, “We got you.” To offer protection and service and allyship, to try to right wrongs and fix the injustice in the world.

McAtee Responds,

Ted Hesburgh was to the Civil Rights era what Pope Francis is to the Great Reset Era — that is, just another soft Marxist. The Roman Catholic Church has been hard left since the 2nd Vatican council.

McMorrow blathers on,

So who am I? I am a straight, white, Christian, married, suburban mom who knows that the very notion that learning about slavery or redlining or systemic racism means that children are being taught to feel bad or hate themselves because they are white is absolute nonsense.

McAtee responds,

Systemic racism is a myth.

Redlining the way the libs tell the story is a myth.

And I would love it if the truth about slavery was taught to every child in America. We could start with these easy to remember quotes;

The Slave trade is the ruling principle of my people. It is the source and glory of all their wealth. The Mother lulls the child to sleep with notes of triumph of an enemy reduced to slavery.”

Black African King
King Gezo of Dahomey — 1840

Upon hearing of the United Kingdom’s ending of the Slave trade The King of Bonny (now in Nigeria) was horrified at the conclusion of the practice and said,

” We think this trade must go on. That is the verdict of our oracle and the priests. They say that your country, however great, can never stop a trade ordained by God himself.”

Even a six year old could get those quotes down.

And when white children are taught this fecal “education” they are being taught to hate themselves and McMorrow saying that such a notion is nonsense, is, well, nonsense.

She’s an leftist idiot who is just mouthing the tired old canards.

McMorrow chimes on,

No child alive today is responsible for slavery. No one is this room is responsible for slavery.

McAtee responds,

McMorrow only says such because she is a racist. She obviously didn’t get the memo that says only racist say such things.


But each and every single one of us bears responsibility for writing the next chapter of history. Each and every single one of us decides what happens next, and how WE respond to history and the world around us.

We are not responsible for the past. We also cannot change the past. We can’t pretend that it didn’t happen, or deny people their very right to exist.

McAtee responds,

1.) The problem is that McMorrow is clueless about history and being clueless it is therefore not possible for her to respond properly to either history or the world around us.

2.) We can’t deny people the right to exist UNLESS they violate God’s law in which case they void their own right to exist if their violation is serious enough.

3.) White people are responsible for the pretend crimes of the past. McMorrow is off the systemic racism reservation with that observation.

McMorrow finally mercifully begins to finish,

I am a straight, white, Christian, married, suburban mom.


I seriously doubt that McMorrow is Christian according to any traditional understanding or standard of Christianity.


I want my daughter to know that she is loved, supported, and seen for whoever she becomes. I want her to be curious, empathetic, and kind.


Blah, blah, blah. How high can she stack the sentimental platitudes?


I want every child in this state to feel seen, heard, and supported, not marginalized and targeted if they are not straight, white, and Christian.


And here is the problem. McMorrow wants to normalize what every previous Christian generation prior saw and defined as perverse and deviant. No generation before the current one wanted to see straight, white and Christian children taught that perverseness and deviancy among their peers was to be normalized. McMorrow, by insisting that she doesn’t want to marginalize the deviant and perverse is proclaiming that she desires that the deviant and the perverse be taken as normative. It is most certainly not normative and so should be targeted and marginalized back into the closet.

McMorrow finishes with a sanctimonious flourish,

People who are different are not the reason our roads are in bad shape after decades of disinvestment, nor the reason healthcare costs are too high, or teachers are leaving the profession.


Completely irrelevant to the matter at hand. This is called the red herring fallacy.


We cannot let hateful people tell you otherwise to scapegoat and deflect from the fact that they’re not doing anything to fix the real issues that impact peoples lives.

I know that hate will only win if people like me stand by and let it happen.

And I want to be very clear right now:

Call me whatever you want. I know who I am. I know what faith and service means, and what it calls for in this moment.

We will not let hate win.


McMorrow is the epitome of what it means to be a hater. However, she is clever enough to accuse her opponent of what she is guilty of. McMorrow hates straight white Christian children so much that she desires to get inside their heads to convince them that perverseness and deviancy are normative. She wants children to accept that boys can claim they are girls and that girls claim they are boys. In so doing McMorrow demonstrates that she is a deviant and perverse enabler and groomer and may thus be deviant and perverse herself. She is the hater. She is the hater of all that is decent, Christian, and normative. When she declares that she “will not hate win” it is hate that is fueling her determination that “hate” will not win.

McMorrow is correct… “we will not let hate win,” and in order to not let hate win we must stop people like Sen. McMorrow.

  1. Great. Only if such writing and thinking could be the norm at URC.

    You named names and you mentioned the negative instead of solely focusing on kindness and concern for Mcmorrow’s intentions that you are in agreement with. Get with the program- how can we save anyone with the way you write (or so how I imagine how too many brothers silently think about this post) which burns bridges. Gotta smile, chuckle, point out what’s in common, be affirming, and build a bridge of calm politeness. It’s the only respectable and allowable way to live and evangelize, so they say.

    At least your sheep are being trained and sharpened.

    1. Thanks for the encouragement Kurt.

      I also wish URC and most other Churches would give up with the “Bridge-building” approach to evangelism. It is not Biblical.
