'They fired me for speaking my beliefs': Hardline sheikh outraged after being SACKED from his day job for saying women should wear the hijab because Muslim men 'can't control their sexual urges'

A hardline Islamic sheikh has been sacked from his day job for telling his followers women need to wear the hijab so men can control their sexual urges.

Queensland Muslim leader Sheikh Zainadine Johnson was weighing into claims made against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein when he advised women on the need to cover up.

'Men should be able to control themselves. This is a common argument against the Islamic hijab,' he told his Facebook followers.

'I totally agree, they should be able to control themselves, however facts show many don't, this is why a hijab is necessary for women.'

Why Were Vatican And RC Church Hierarchies NOT Unnerved About Infertility “Ingredients” In WHO’s African Tetanus Vaccine Campaign?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The Roman Catholic Church has strict rules and unyielding dogma regarding religious beliefs and congregants practices but, unfortunately, seems to turn a deaf ear and a blind eye and subscribes to “going along to get along” especially regarding the pseudosciences regarding GMO ‘phood,' and what the medical industry submits as ‘gospel truth’ when it comes to pharmaceutical vaccines!...

Outrage in Italy as Priest Tells Girl Raped by Migrant She Deserved It

A priest in the Italian city of Bologna has been forced to apologize after telling an under-age girl who was raped that she deserved it.

Lorenzo Guidotti posted a long rant on Facebook in which he blamed the girl for hanging around with migrants and getting drunk.

"Sweetie, I'm sorry, but… you get revoltingly drunk… and then who do you go off with? A North African?" the priest wrote in the Facebook post.

‘Cashed-up’ Mother Teresa kept Vatican Bank afloat – journalist

Mother Teresa had such huge savings in the Vatican Bank that if she had withdrawn her funds the institution could have defaulted, according to an Italian journalist.

Gianluigi Nuzzi’s newly-released book, ‘The Original Sin,’ digs into the Vatican’s darkest secrets and details how, when American archbishop Paul Marcinkus was appointed president of the Vatican Bank, Mother Teresa was believed to have “by far the most cashed up account.”

"If only Mother Teresa had closed the accounts or transferred them, the institute would have risked default," Nuzzi writes, La Presse reports.

The Italian author went on to say how the discovery of Mother Teresa’s bank account is proof of Marcinkus’ long-standing meddling in Vatican affairs.

‘Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath’: How Season 2 Could Change Scientology

Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath premiered in 2016 and became an instant hit with viewers. The docuseries featured former members of the Church of Scientology, who claimed that they were mistreated and abused while with the organization.

Season 2 premiered in 2017 and continued where the first season left off, with more explosive accusations that Remini and the participants of the program hope will change Scientology and its practices. The church has repeatedly denied the allegations and released a lengthy response claiming that “nothing about A&E’s Leah Remini ‘docuseries’ is honest.”

Still, the actress has vowed to continue her fight against the organization she was a part of for more than three decades. Here’s a look at some of the allegations made so far in Season 2, as well as what viewers can expect to see in future episodes and what change has come about since the series first aired.

Why Are U.K. Progressives Still Celebrating a Grotesque anti-Semite and Holocaust Denier

The protestors pointed out that Atzmon is a well-documented Holocaust denier and racist. The Community Security Trust (which monitors threats to the U.K.’s Jews) described his previous book as "quite probably the most anti-Semitic book published in this country in recent years." That book argued that Jewishness (and not Zionism) is pernicious and that Hitler will be vindicated by history.

Why Medieval Cats Approved of the Plague

From the 12th century onward there were two distinct attitudes to cats. For many people the cat population operated as important rodent-controllers, and every so often a cat would go beyond being a mere working animal and become a welcome pet inside the house. Working cats and house cats were always popular, but now a negative attitude began to run alongside the friendly one. For some people, the cat was now seen as an evil animal, in league with the Devil. For them, the cat needed to be persecuted if Satan and his followers were to be defeated.

In the following century Pope Gregory IX added his voice to the campaign against the evil cat. He was intent on stamping out a sect of Devil-worshippers in Germany who involved black cats in their rituals.
Webmaster addition: This is what allowed the rats whose fleas carryied the Black Plague to run rampant across Europe.

Bangladesh Considers Sterilization to Curb Rohingya Refugee Population

Bangladesh is considering sterilizing the Rohingya refugee population after health officials proposed the move to the government Friday.

Supporters of the plan call for vasectomies for Rohingya men and tubectomies for women, saying “sterilization of the males is the best way to control the population,” according to Pintu Kanti Bhattacharjee, who heads a health service near the Myanmar-Bangladesh border.

“If a man is sterilized, he cannot father a child even if he marries four or five times,” he added.

The idea was put forward shortly after rights activists working in refugee camps said Rohingya women believe that pregnancy protects them from rape and other attacks from Myanmar's security forces.

“Some of them told us that if a woman was pregnant, she had less chance of being targeted by the military or attackers,” AFP reported the activists as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out to Health Service Manager Pintu Kanti Bhattacharjee, that forced sterilzations would be another form of slow-mo genocide against the Rohingya people.

But then, that would be the point, wouldn't it?!?

And what would happen to the people who would not consent to having the procedure done?!? Would they be rounded up in camps, and offered the choice between forcible sterilization or death?!?!?

And BTW: has a Burmese-language version of "Mein Kampf" just come out?!? And I ask this, because this is precisely the kind of "racial hygiene" Hitler would have advocated against "the others" !!

I would also like to politely suggest to Mr. Bhattacharjee, that the optics of such a move against the Rohingyas, if the Myanmar government goes ahead with this plan, will be perceived by the rest of the world as a crime against humanity, and rightly so.

George Washington's Church Says Plaque Honoring First President Must Come Down

Leaders at the church that George Washington attended decided that a plaque honoring the first president of the United States must be removed.

Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia will take down a memorial marking the pew where Washington sat with his family, saying it is not acceptable to all worshipers.

“The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome," leaders said, a reference to the fact that Washington was a slaveholder.

Myanmar Rohingya crisis: US withdraws military assistance

The US is withdrawing military assistance units from Myanmar over the country's treatment of its Rohingya Muslim minority in Rakhine state.
The state department said it had also dropped travel waivers for Myanmar military officials, and was considering economic sanctions.
Almost a million Rohingya people have fled Myanmar for Bangladesh, says Bangladesh's envoy to the UN.

Myanmar's military says it is fighting militants and not targeting civilians.
"It is imperative that any individuals or entities responsible for atrocities be held accountable," the US state department said.

"We express our gravest concern with recent events in Myanmar's Rakhine state and the violent, traumatic abuses Rohingya and other communities have endured."

Last week, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said his country held Myanmar's military leadership "accountable" for its crackdown on the Rohingya Muslim minority, adding that the US was "extraordinarily concerned" by the situation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how quickly the US government will move from withdrawing military aid to sanctions...or, possibly support a militant upheaval here, as the US attempted to do in Syria ,which will greatly hinder any hope for economic development in the area. There are two important factors to consider here, and they both touch on Chinese development in the Rakhine area:

The Pursuit of Money and Natural Resources in Myanmar: the Untold Story

The Rakhine state, where most of the Rohingya live, is very vital for transportation of oil and natural gas, and development of other natural resources, to China and beyond. This is the primary reason that the Myanmar government wants the Rohingyas out, and are apparently terminating Rohingya lives "with extreme prejudice" to accomplish this.

WHY FRIDAY THE 13TH BECAME UNLUCKY – LEST WE FORGET (with related hilarious nsfw video)

...It was generally agreed that the charges were false, but...King Philip, who was already deeply in debt to the Templars from his war with the English, decided to seize upon the rumours ...as a way of freeing himself from his debts. At dawn on Friday, 13 October 1307 ...King Philip IV ordered de Molay and scores of other French Templars to be simultaneously arrested....Claims were made that... Templar ...recruits were forced to spit on the Cross, deny Christ, and engage in indecent kissing ...the order was said to have encouraged homosexual practices. The Templars were charged with numerous other offences such as financial corruption, fraud, and secrecy.

Some speculations regarding the accusations of homosexuality in addition to heresy: this was no doubt to seal their fate, since EVERY Catholic Priest knows intimately just how wrong these are...

To which this is the appropriate reponse, for the role the Church had in the murder of the Templars:

FLASHBACK - ‘God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un,’ evangelical adviser says

Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, one of President Trump’s evangelical advisers who preached the morning of his inauguration, has released a statement saying the president has the moral authority to “take out” North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“When it comes to how we should deal with evildoers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil,” Jeffress said. “In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un.”

Flipping the bird in church is protected speech, court rules

Georgia's highest court has thrown out the conviction of a man who was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge three years ago after he gestured with his middle finger and shouted at his church pastor.

The Georgia Supreme Court unanimously ruled Monday that David Freeeman's outburst constituted protected speech under the First Amendment.

The incident occurred in August 2014 at the 12Stone Church in Flowery Branch, 45 miles northeast of Atlanta. The church's pastor, Jason Berry, asked teachers to stand for recognition so the congregation could pray for them to have a successful school year.

Freeman, according to the court's opinion, stood up and raised his middle finger before shouting, "Don’t send your kids to the evil public schools! Don’t let Satan or the devil raise your kids!"

The potential cure?!? Demand that all clerics and diplomats be married, and that couples are vetted for their mutual vocations in the church. That includes the Pope.

Israel doing nothing to stop attacks on churches and mosques

Since 2009, at least 53 churches and mosques have been vandalized in present-day Israel and the occupied West Bank.

The vast majority of those cases – 45 – have been closed without any charges against perpetrators.

In all, there have been just nine indictments and seven convictions, according to Israeli government data reported by the newspaper Haaretz. Only eight of the cases remain under investigation.

They were usually dismissed on the grounds of unknown perpetrators.

FROM THOSE WONDERFUL FOLKS WHO BROUGHT YOU THE INQUISITION!

The ruling elite loves a population trained from birth to confuse beliefs with the real world. It is much easier to rule a population, pillage them with taxes, or send them off to fight a war, if the ruler is not required to prove the reality of his or her propositions and statements. This is why, since the dawn of civilizations, governments encourage their people to be ruled by beliefs and not by reason. As children, we are bribed to allow beliefs to rule our thinking. Believe in the fat man from the north Pole, get a bicycle. Believe in the rabbit, get candy. Believe in the tooth fairy, get a quarter. Never question, never think, never analyze; just take your goodies and go on believing.

It takes chains of steel to enslave a rational human, but all the rest may be enslaved by a belief.

EXCLUSIVE: She was Scientology royalty - served as L Ron Hubbard's 'Commodore Messenger' - but Janis Grady tells how an excoriating rant by leader David Miscavige over lack of preparation for a visit from Tom Cruise made her flee the church

Janis Gillham Grady was no ordinary member of the church - she was Scientology royalty.

Her mother Yvonne Gillham-Jentzsch founded the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre. Her father Peter Gillham espoused the Scientology creed around the globe. Her stepfather Heber Jentzsch was the church's president.

Such was her parents' devotion to the cause that Janis and her siblings had been raised in large part by L Ron Hubbard and his wife, Mary Sue.

But as she stood next to her husband, Paul, listening as church leader David Miscavige delivered an excoriating rant something in Janis snapped.

It was 11 p.m. and Miscavige was berating them for damage caused by a sudden summer storm that had flooded the church's 500-acre compound in La Quinta, just east of Los Angeles, devastating villas prepared for an imminent visit from Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.

Myanmar’s Military, Political Leaders United Against Rohingya ‘Threat’

Myanmar’s de facto political ruler, Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi, and the military that long kept her party out of power, seem to be increasingly unified as international attention on the country shifts from its past troubles to the ongoing Rohingya crisis.

The Rohingya, mostly Muslim but also including a Hindu minority are stateless people, denied citizenship under Myanmar law. This puts them in a very difficult situation, where Myanmar’s ruling NLD Party considers them “illegal immigrants,” but by and large they aren’t from anywhere else.

SAUDI ARABIA CRACKS DOWN ON DISSENTING CLERICS AMID RUMORS OF CROWN PRINCE’S RISE TO THRONE

SAUDI ARABIA ARRESTED A trio of prominent clerics last weekend, a sign that the kingdom may be preparing for the formal ascendance of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, known as MBS, who is a key decision-maker on the country’s domestic and international affairs but is technically subservient to his father, King Salman.

Salman al-Odah, Awad al-Qarni and Ali al-Omary were arrested with little explanation over the weekend, but activists suspect that their failure to follow MBS’s hawkish line on Qatar played a role in their imprisonment.

Human rights activists told the Wall Street Journal that al-Odah’s arrest came after he declined to come out in support of the Saudi government’s actions against Qatar.

On September 8, al-Odah tweeted a fairly banal message hoping for reconciliation between the kingdom and Qatar. “May God harmonize between their hearts for the good of their people,” he wrote:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like the bloodlust of The Saudi Warlord, and Butcher of Yemen, Prince Salman is pushing him, yet again, over the edge, and will soon declare war against Qatar.

What he has accomplished in Yemen, I am quite certain he wants to accomplish in Qatar:

Images: Yemeni children dying from complications of malnutrtion, due to Saudi military blockading the ports

Images: starving Yemeni children now dying of cholera

To all Qatari parents; however you can manage it, get your kids out of that country and into a safe haven; what awaits Qatar, in this madness, will be precisely the same fate as you have seen for the Yemeni children, in the images above.

‘Culture of celibacy’ to blame for Catholic child sex abuse - study

A five-year study into sexual abuse within the Catholic Church has found that mandatory celibacy and a culture of secrecy within the entirely male-dominated clergy were “the major precipitating risk factor[s] for child sexual abuse.”

Former Catholic priest, Des Cahill, and co-author, theologian Peter Wilkinson, compiled information from 26 royal commissions and inquiries from Australia, Ireland, the UK, Canada and the Netherlands since 1985 in their report.

Cahill, now married but still a practising Catholic, began the research after he discovered he had lived and worked with several pedophile priests throughout his career in the priesthood.

Eyebrows — mostly those of Charlie Rose — were raised when the Breitbart News Executive Chairman was heard to utter criticisms of Catholic leaders on the subject of immigration and the Deferred Action on Childhood Migrants.

Dr. Manion expands: “The Catholic Catechism (N. 2241.2) says that immigration policy belongs with ‘political authorities’, not bishops. Good Catholics can disagree with bishops on immigration, and Bannon does.

“Cardinal Dolan says he’s insulted because Bannon mentions money. Well, the bishops get a billion dollars a year from the federal government. That’s real money, even in D.C., and if the bishops think they’re getting it because they’re such good guys – well, they’re the only folks in Washington who are.”

Hillary Clinton Blames Angry Voters for Defeat; Calls for ‘Sacred Resistance’ Against Trump

The event, “An Evening with Hillary Clinton to Benefit Camp Olmsted,” was a fundraiser for the children’s camp, during which Clinton was going to discuss her faith with her pastor, Bill Shillady, who in turn was supposed to discuss his new book, Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

However, days before the event, the publisher yanked the book and destroyed remaining copies after it found multiple examples of plagiarism.

Each ticket was to include a copy of the book, but ticket holders received refunds for that part of the ticket for the event at Riverside Church. Shillady was not in attendance and was replaced by Rev. Ginger Gaines-Cirelli.

Churches condemn attempts to 'weaken' Christians in Jerusalem

The leading churches in Jerusalem issued a rare joint statement Tuesday condemning what they called "systematic" Israeli attempts to "weaken the Christian presence" in the city.

The statement, signed by the heads of the Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Armenian, Lutheran and other churches, condemned an Israeli court decision allowing a pro-settlement group to take control of church land in a mainly Palestinian area of annexed east Jerusalem, as well as a bill in the Israeli parliament relating to church land.

"We see in these actions a systematic attempt to undermine the integrity of the Holy City of Jerusalem and the Holy Land, and to weaken the Christian presence," the statement said.

On July 31, a Jerusalem court upheld controversial real estate deals involving Israeli pro-settlement organisation Ateret Cohanim and the church for two hotel properties near the Jaffa Gate entrance to the Old City.

Dozens of witches were seen performing rituals outside Trump Tower earlier this year - just one week before a blaze inside the building.

As well as casting spells on the controversial President, Vicky said huge numbers of people are turning to witchcraft and black magic to help them deal with everything from boosting their love life - to cursing or exacting revenge on their enemies.

Even celebrities come in to her store, Panpipes Magickal Marketplace, looking for spells to help them land big movie roles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm going to take a guess here that none of them are working.
