A Poem On War

Beyond the count of years I walked the world,

and my children built their shrines to me.

Decades and centuries and millennia pass,

and still the shrines are built.

Temples insubstantial to men,

clear to my eyes.

No foundations or walls or roofs,

but shrines nonetheless.

Holy ground, consecrated

Today, every day, somewhere in the world,

the earth is prepared for my coming.

My hallowed grounds are everywhere.

In valleys and on mountains,

on broad plains and deep in hidden passes,

in deserts, on city streets.

Nameless, unremembered places.

The grotesque injustice of Obama’s speech at the Washington synagogue

The issue with President Obama’s speech to Adas Israel Congregation in Washington yesterday was the sense of entitlement. Obama is pandering to alleged liberals at this synagogue, liberal Zionists, and he gets laughter for saying that Palestinians are not easy partners–

It's just not a rational position

It’s hard to come up with a good reason to be against gay marriage.

Why?

Easy, because it doesn’t make any sense as a position in a country that champions freedom.

That doesn’t stop people from trying, though.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oppose gay marriage?

Don't marry a gay.

Problem solved.

But look how much evil comes from people who are convinced that they have a right to impose their way of life on others.

In Obscure Policy Document, U.S. Catholic Bishops & Muslim Clerics call for "Alternatives To Predatory Lenders" (Usury)

Each year the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Muslim religious leaders hold several regional conferences called the 'Muslim-Catholic Dialogue.' One of most recent gatherings addressed the topic of usury (predatory lending) and suggested that a Catholic-Muslim alliance be formed to quash it. Notably, no Rabbis were mentioned or included in the proposal.

The Roots of Christian Zionism: How Scofield Sowed Seeds of Apostasy

Ever wonder why so many Christians support America's many wars, especially in the Middle East? A new Christianity has emerged from the Twentieth Century called Christian Zionism or what could be called, "Angry Evangelicalism," or "Dispensationalism on Steroids." What motivates a nationally known, evangelical preacher like John Hagee to call for a preemptive strike against Iran when it is contrary to what Jesus taught and commanded his followers to do? This "Roots of Zionism" presentation may be the first of its kind with a factual explanation of how Christianity's latest apostate epidemic was launched with the publishing of C. I. Scofield's reference Bible in 1909, and the influence of the notes in it.

FLASHBACK - Buy-Bull Bangers:Regular, or Extra-Crispy?

It is a compelling set of facts, isn't it? If I were a believer I would have no choice but to conclude that the big guy in the sky is really, REALLY, pissed off at the US and its allies for all this smiting going on.

So to all those who went along with these wars because you believed it when Bush and Obama, et. al. said this was God's will, you are all damned. Damned, damned, damned! Damned to hell. And there can be no redemption while the warmongers are still in power. There is no absolution if you know a war of conquest against an innocent people is going on and you do nothing at all to stop it. There is no absolution if you know torture of innocent people is going on and you do nothing at all to stop it. The priests cannot forgive your sins if they share those sins, no matter how expensive those beads are. Having worked so hard to trick you into sin, would they really be eager to get you out? Just whose side are they on? Which God is it they really serve?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since I wrote this article, the winters have gotten harder, there are earthquakes in America where they never had them before, the Gulf of Mexico is a toxic sludge, Hanford and WIPP are leaking radiation, along with the remains of Fukushimna washing up on our western beaches! Once again tornadoes are ripping across the heartland.

And, the US Government is finally admitting what we knew all along; the 2003 invasion of Iraq was unjust, or as politicians trying to fake a look of embarrassment put it, a "mistake."

Jewelry store sign prompts same-sex couple to ask for refund

A same-sex couple from St. John's is upset after discovering the jewelry store that sold them their engagement rings has posted a sign that seems to oppose same-sex marriage — but one of the store's owners says he's allowed to post his religious beliefs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, the store owner has a right to post his religious beliefs, and the customers have a right to take their business elsewhere. That is what living in a free society is supposed to be like.

How Did Jesus Get to be So Hot? Where Popular Images of Jesus Came From

Lyrics for the rap song, B.I.B.L.E. (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth), include the following line: The white image, of Christ, is really Cesare Borgia. The idea that our modern image of Jesus could be based on a ruthless power-hungry illegitimate son of a pope is startling and farfetched. But it is no more bizarre or fanciful than many other ideas about who Jesus was or what he looked like. And it does have an interesting tale behind it.

To understand the Borgia story requires a bit of context.

The Palestinian Nakba; A Nucleus of Nationwide Arab Nakba

Each year on May 15th the Palestinians across the world commemorate “Al Nakba Day”. This year it is the 67th commemoration. Al Nakba means the catastrophe, and refers to the Zionist occupation of Palestine, the numerous massacres they perpetrated against Palestinians, the ethnic cleansing, the dispossession, the total destruction of hundreds of Palestinian communities, the forced expulsion, the supplanting of Zionist Jews in place of indigenous Palestinians and the creation of the terrorist entity of Israel that is still spreading havoc, death and destruction in the whole Middle East.

Aipac Wants Congress to Criminalize BDS

Of all the lame-brained, lumpen-brained, hare-brained schemes emanating from Aipac’s lobby shop, this is one of the truly lamest. As Israel forms the most dangerous, aggressive, racist government in its history, Aipac thought this was a good time to remind the American people of that by conniving to amend an already contentious fast-track trade bill with a new amendment that would criminalize BDS in the U.S.

Montana Catholic school fires unmarried pregnant teacher — and says she has no right to sue

Former Butte Central teacher Shaela Evenson got pregnant through in vitro fertilization. Her bosses found out in January of 2014, when an anonymous letter arrived for then superintendent of schools for the diocese, Patrick Haggarty, alleging that Evenson “was pregnant and not married.” On January 12, Evenson received an official termination letter from Butte Central, stating that Evenson was out of compliance with her employment contract.

Religion Gives Us the World’s Largest Mental Disorder

t is estimated that 80% of the world is religious, which equates to approximately 5.6 billion people who are affected with Religithexia.
In psychology, the term “Mental Retardation” was changed to “Learning Disabled”.

Perhaps the term, “Religitard” might be too harsh for someone who hangs on to outdated beliefs, so maybe there will be a new diagnosis called Religithexia for those who are “Religiously Disabled”?

Etymology: Religi (reverence for the gods) and thexia (longing for or desire)

The Palestinian Nakba is a catastrophe for the Jewish colonists and their descendants: it transformed the once decent surviving victims of European antisemitism and the Holocaust into terrorists, killers, thieves, racists, and liars – into the mirror image of their persecutors. And the same perverted brush tainted the UN and Western governments as collaborators of the sickest and most sadistic society in the world.

Non-Religious Population Is Soaring in America

The Pew Research Center on Religion & Public Life is reporting, in their poll of 35,000 Americans, that during the seven years from 2007 to 2014, the numbers of religiously “Unaffiliated” were soaring, the numbers of Christians were plunging, and the numbers of adherents to non-Christian faiths were rising substantially but not nearly as much as were the numbers of “Unaffiliated.”

Jeb Bush Courts Christian Conservatives In Commencement Speech

Charging that "the Christian voice" isn't heard enough in the world, the Republican White House prospect lashed out at the Democratic president's administration for "demanding obedience in complete disregard of religious conscience."

"The present administration is supporting the use of coercive federal power. What should be easy calls in favor of religious freedom have instead become an aggressive stance against it," Bush told an estimated 34,000 gathered for a graduation ceremony.

"Somebody here is being small-minded and intolerant, and it sure isn't the nuns, ministers, and laymen and women who ask only to live and practice their faith," he said.

Some advice for Pamela Geller

So, Pam, please change your ways. They are more than just hateful, bitter, and despicable. They're simply not working. If you insist on persisting in your current methods, I don't see bright days ahead. If your stubbornness gets the best of you, you might end up unemployed. But don't worry. There are other ways to survive. I'm sure Terry will have a spot for you in Florida. He could always use help on the fryer.

Israel's safety belt: the US Christian Right pushes new anti-BDS initiative

Tennessee's General Assembly formally condemned the Palestinian-led Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) campaign, the first US state legislature to do so. Joint Resolution 170 was approved 93-1 by the House of Representatives, following a 30-0 vote in the state Senate.

The resolution calls BDS "one of the main vehicles for spreading anti-Semitism", describing it as "inherently antithetical and deeply damaging to the causes of peace, justice, equality, democracy and human rights for all the peoples in the Middle East."

The vote, which carries no legal weight, was celebrated by pro-Israel campaigners such as StandWithUs co-founder Roz Rothstein, who tweeted "oh happy day."

More Neocon-Zionist Theater in Texas

Gellar’s ‘Draw the Prophet’ charade was the perfect bait for any would-be radical trying to make a name for himself, yet they allowed the provocation to proceed under the pretext of ‘upholding the first amendment.’

As the Garland police spokesman confessed, this had all been pre-planned months beforehand. Only the very naïve or hopelessly deluded will put any faith in the FBI’s lame-duck denials that they deliberately allow attacks of these sorts to take place, or organize them directly by way of informants, such as the one linked to Simpson.

Fifty-Seven Percent of Republicans Want to Undo the American Revolution

The United States is a Christian nation.

That's an idea former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has harped on time and time again during his political career.

And while he didn't explicitly talk about it today during his presidential announcement, it's bound to pop up some time during his campaign.

That's because most Republicans agree that the US is a Christian nation. In fact, according to one recent survey, 57 percent of them actually want to establish Christianity as the official state religion of our republic.

That's right - 57 percent of Republicans want to turn our democracy into a theocracy!

Muslims Defend Pam Geller’s Right to Hate

Anti-Muslim advocate Pam Geller has the absolute right to draw any cartoon she wants of the Prophet Muhammad. That was not just the response from Muslim-American leaders I spoke to after news broke Sunday night of a shooting outside a Garland, Texas, event that Geller had organized—offering $10,000 for people to draw images of Muhammad—but before that event as well.

As of the writing of this article, we know that after the conclusion of Geller’s event, two gunmen drove into the parking lot of the venue and fired shots that wounded one security officer. The two suspects were then reportedly killed by the police officers outside the venue. The identity and motivation of the gunmen is still not known as of press time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am a Christian.

But I have read the poetry or Rabia Al Basri, one of the first Gnostic saints of Islam, whose name is still invoked in prayer by Muslin women wanting children in the Middle East, and it is quite beautiful. The English translations of her "love poetry to God" (Yup, this was a gal) are beautiful, and I am going to share one that particularly touches me, titled:

"In My Soul" (from poemhunter.com)

"In My Soul

There is a temple, a shrine, a mosque, a church where I kneel.

Pray should bring us to an altar where no walls or names exist.

Is there not a region of love where sovereignty is illumined nothing,

where ecstasy gets poured into itself and becomes lost,
where the wing is fully alive but has no mind or Body?

In my soul, there is a temple, a shrine, a mosque, a church that dissolve,
that dissolve in God"

Eat THAT, Pamela Geller!!!!!

Anti-Muslim Activist And Cartoonist Speak Out Following Garland Shooting

The anti-Muslim activist whose Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas was attacked by two gunmen on Sunday said the shooting shows the importance of her message.

Pamela Geller, American Freedom Defense Initiative president and sponsor of the "Draw Muhammad" contest in Garland, Texas, defended her event to CNN's Alisyn Camerota on Monday.

"This terrible incident reflects the need for such conferences," Geller said. "It's illustrative of the violent assault on the freedom of speech." Later, she added, "There is a problem in Islam, as illustrated last night, that anyone who addresses it gets attacked."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Ms. Geller suffers from SMD(selective memory disorder).

As reported at wickipedia:

Aniconism in Judaism covers a number of areas. The portrayal of Yahweh in any kind of human or concrete form is absolutely forbidden, and there is a strong tradition of avoiding sculpture, especially if large and free-standing, of all types and in all contexts, but especially religious sculpture. Two-dimensional images, including those of religious subjects and humans, are often regarded as acceptable, especially if on a small scale, such as book illustrations, the concern always being to avoid anything approaching idolatry.

So, Judaism prohibits the depiction of God; the Muslim faith forbids the depiction of the person they believe to have been his messenger.

And IF, as AP reported yesterday, "Since 2006, the FBI had been investigating Elton Simpson — one of the men suspected in the Texas shootings outside a contest featuring cartoons of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad.", why did they not prevent the shooting?!? Was it simply a staged event, with complete complicity by Geller, trying to rile up US support for a massive invasion of the Middle East to "crush Isis"?!?

IF so, this event was an absolute, epic fail, because people no longer believe anything their government tells them.

Planning Chaos in the Middle East: Destruction of Societies for Foreign Money Control

If one wonders how a desert-crawling line of Japanese open-back trucks gifted by the US filled with countless irregular fighters in plain view could ever have ever made it overnight to the point where Western military and political leaders are saying “the war against ISIL may be interminable”, one begins to see through the game. ISIL is a construction financed and trained by covert US and oil-king allies that ruins every place it enters, like Syria once the regime began to win the civil war. Al-Nusra/Al Qaeda was not enough. ISIL is a step up in the US-led control of the Middle East by terror, chaos and social devastation. “The Salvador option” was the first name for the post-war death squads in Iraq, but “Islamic State” stirs much more apocalyptic passions pro and con. Best of all, the ruling foreign war machines of the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia and NATO are now far better justified to “fight the barbaric terrorists”. Saudi Arabia with US support is now even projecting the “terrorist” and sectarian “Shiite” labels on the popular uprising of the poor in Yemen against a corrupt US-Saudi puppet government. One object alone is achieved. Peoples and resources of the region can be predated without sovereign social defences or unity of collective life purpose, the ultimate target of every US-led aggression. As long as all evils can be blamed on an ever-shifting Enemy, there is no overcoming recognition.

OBAMA BLOCKS IRAQI NUN FROM DESCRIBING CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION

A leading conservative is asking why the Obama State Department is barring a persecuted Iraqi nun from entry into the United States to share her message about the brutal treatment of Christians in her country.

Nina Shea of the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, writes in a National Review op-ed that Sister Diana Momeka is “an internationally respected and leading representative of the Nineveh Christians who have been killed and deported by ISIS.”

Yet this nun is being “barred from coming to Washington to testify about this catastrophe?”

Sister Diana was the only Christian in the delegation and the only member blocked from the trip, the Washington Times reported, leading some of her American supporters to question why she was singled out.

Shea, in her op-ed titled “With Malice Toward Nun,” exposed the real reason why Obama denied the visa for Sister Diana.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The persecution of Christians and other minority religions in the Middle East now is an established fact. That Obama wants it ignored is not going to make it go away spontaneously.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said the issue was one of “religious liberty.” His Democratic counterpart, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (CA) countered that the vote was an “outrageous intrusion into workers' personal lives” and “totally inconsistent with the anti-government rhetoric that we hear around here morning, noon and night.”

Obama’s Lawyer: Religious Institutions May Lose Tax-Exempt Status If Court Rules for Gay Marriage

Religious institutions could be at risk of losing their tax-exempt status due to their beliefs about marriage if the Supreme Court holds that gay couples have a constitutional right to wed, President Obama’s attorney acknowledged to the Supreme Court today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you are opposed to gay marriage I have a simple solution. Don't marry a gay! Problem solved.

But look at how much grief and sorrow are brought to the world by those who think their imaginary playmate in the sky has authorized them to tell everyone else to live their lives the way they are told to, based on some writings of bronze-age semi-literate goat-herders!

And one more thing. The professional environmentalists (such as Carbonazis) are always wailing about the need for control of the human population. Did it ever not occur to you that is the purpose the gays serve? Have you never noticed that as social stress increases so does the per capita incidence of homosexuality? Far from being people who should be tolerated, it is clear to me that gays are a necessity that serve an important survival function for the human race!

Monotheism vs. Polytheism

Can we still conceive of the revival of pagan sensibility in an age so profoundly saturated by Judeo-Christian monotheism and so ardently adhering to the tenets of liberal democracy? In popular parlance the very word “paganism” may incite some to derision and laughter. Who, after all, wants to be associated with witches and witchcraft, with sorcery and black magic? Worshiping animals or plants, or chanting hymns to Wotan or Zeus, in an epoch of cable television and “smart weapons,” does not augur well for serious intellectual and academic inquiry.

Writers Withdraw From PEN Gala to Protest Award to Charlie Hebdo

Under the guise of the “War on Terror,” there has indeed been a systematic assault on free speech: though it’s been one waged by Western governments primarily against their Muslim citizens. For that reason, it has provoked almost no objections from those who dressed up as free speech crusaders that week.

How the West Is Killing Christianity

•Western leaders abandon Christians to die in Africa, Mideast.

Foreign wars and conflicts launched and promoted by the United States and its allies since 2003 have led directly to the widespread persecution of Christians in Africa and the Middle East.

The ongoing slaughter of Christians, followed by the exodus of upwards of 1 million of them from war-torn countries like Syria and Iraq, where Christianity flourished for nearly two millennia, has encouraged many observers to warn of the death rather than decline of Christianity in that part of the world.

Fear mongering, the ISIS gambit and Zionist recruitment

Evidently, in Harper’s pro-Zionist fantasy world ‘terrorist’ is a smear word applied exclusively to the opponents of Israeli imperialism, whereas a state birthed through ethnic cleansing and maintained by way of bribery, blackmail, and state-sponsored mass murder is praised to the heavens merely for allowing its privileged Jewish citizens and disenfranchised Arab subjects to vote for whichever hawkish Zionist politician will continue the policies of terror in the holy land.

Italian authorities: Terror suspects planned Vatican attack

The revelation about the planned attack against the Vatican came Friday as police said they were arresting 18 suspected extremists, including two purported bodyguards for Osama bin Laden.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We know that the real Osama died of natural causes in late 2001, and that all subsequent Osamas were fakes, which means these claimed bodyguards are also likely fakes as well, which suggests that this was a false-flag attack in the making, to attack the center of Catholicism and frame it on Muslims, to enrage Catholics (if not all Christians) into a new (un)Holy Crusade!

Armenia, Turkey still at odds a century after 1915 massacre

Some 2 million Armenians were living in the Ottoman Empire at the start of the World War I in 1914, which increased turmoil in the Middle Eastern realm and led to its eventual demise.

In the next eight years, the size of the Armenian population in Turkey decreased to less than half a million.

The mass killings, which historians believe led to the demise of over 1.5 million people, began on April 24, 1915, when 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders were detained by the authorities and later executed in the then-capital, Constantinople (now Istanbul).

The violence was committed under the rule of the Young Turks movement, later known as the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP), which led the rebellion against the absolute movement, but at the same time shifted towards policies of Turkish nationalism.

5 Stories Everyone Assumes Are In The Bible (But Aren't)

Sure, Mary Magdalene does appear in the gospels as a disciple of Jesus, but that's about it. She wasn't a prostitute and wasn't even the only female in his entourage -- Luke Chapter 8 lists his disciples, which include Magdalene; Joanna, wife of Chuza; and somebody named Susanna. Jesus was actually pretty popular with the ladies.

Students At Pennsylvania's McGuffey High School Organize 'Anti-Gay Day' And Allegedly Target LGBT Classmates

A Pennsylvania high school has come under media scrutiny after a group of students organized an "Anti-Gay Day" in response to the nationally-observed Day of Silence.

The Day of Silence, which has been officially organized by GLSEN (or the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network) since 2001, encourages students and young adults to take a vow of silence in an effort to prompt officials to address the problem of anti-lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) bullying and harassment in their schools.

10 Points Every Christian Should Know About His Religion

Ever since working out in second grade that Santa was a hoax, I never blindly trusted again any "beliefs" that were in conflict with nature's laws or common sense. I immediately worked out that the Easter Bunny was not real either, questioned every religious belief, and developed an insatiable thirst for truth. By the age of twelve I had already become an atheist and considered the Catholic Church to be the oldest, biggest, and possibly the most dangerous criminal organization in human history. Quite a feat for a 12-year-old altar boy growing up in a family of staunch Catholics who, then as now, practice their faith by the book.

Michelle Bachmann: Obama's poor relationship with Israel will bring the return of Jesus

Oh! Lord! Sorry.

Former Republican congresswoman Michele Bachmann stated that President Barack Obama’s handling of the Iranian nuclear deal is a symbol of the coming of the end of times and the “imminent” return of Jesus Christ, during a recent radio interview.

Bachmann explained that if Obama and the United States turn their back on Israel, this would bring severe “curses” upon the United States, similar to those seen in the end of days.

RELIGIOUS FANATICISM IS A HUGE FACTOR IN AMERICANS’ SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL

Almost half of all Americans want to support Israel even if its interests diverge from the interests of their own country. Only a minority of Americans (47 percent) say that their country should pursue their own interests over supporting Israel’s when the two choices collide. It’s the ultimate violation of George Washington’s 1796 Farewell Address warning that “nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded. … The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave.”

Islamophobia, like all phobias, is based not on ignorance but on false beliefs

Reza Aslan provides crucial insight on the source and cause of widespread islamophobia in the US and around the world and the best way to counter it.

[I]t’s easy to assume Americans harbor an anti-Muslim sentiment because of the September 11 attacks. As Aslan explains that’s not exactly the case, because there’s been a rise in Islamophobia since 2001. “The further we got away from 9/11, the higher the anti-Muslim sentiment grew, so something else must be going on – there must be another reason,” Aslan explained.

That reason is not just ignorance, he says.5-16-His-Religion-Relevant-

[It] comes down to consistent and biased anti-Muslim messages that trickle down and become talking points for the media, and politicians during election season. “All of this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy,” Aslan said.

Fuck Your Conscience; Do Your Job

Down the road a bit from Sisterfuck is Millegdeville, Georgia, where Brittany Cartrett had a miscarriage. She needed assistance passing the miscarried fetus, so her doctor prescribed her Misoprostol, a pill that would help her complete what had started naturally, if sadly. When her doctor called local Walmart to have it filled, the pharmacist on duty refused to do so because, as she later told Cartrett, "I couldn't think of a valid reason why you would need this prescription." Misoprostol can be used to induce abortion, which is why it would be effective after a miscarriage. When Cartrett explained why she needed it, the pharmacist said, "Well, I don't feel like there is a reason why you would need it, so we refused to fill it."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's see how the government reacts when Christians exercise their religious belief to drive out the money-changers!
