Deconstructing the Zionist View of Gaza’s Horror - An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

The truth is that outside Israel, Washington, D.C. and various other Zionist strongholds, David Harris’s worldview is crumbling. And, as the numbers of those who share his viewpoint shrinks, other counter-groups, such as the boycott Israel movement, grow in number. Sooner or later a tipping point will be reached and then things will change and probably do so rapidly. On that day what will David Harris do? Blame it all on anti-Semitism? Take residence at the top of Masada? Or grudgingly seek to make his peace with the Palestinians?,

Former KGB Agent Yuri Bezmenov Explains How to Brainwash a Nation

This amazing interview was done back in 1985 with Yuri Bezmenov, a former KGB agent who was trained in subversion techniques. He explains the 4 basic steps to socially engineering entire generations into thinking and behaving the way those in power want them to. It’s shocking because our nation has been transformed in the exact same way, and followed the exact same steps.

Jews Are Most-Loved Religious Group in America

The study shows that Evangelicals admire Jews and rate them highly, but this is far from being mutual, Jews, so it seems, do not love Evangelists at all. In fact they rate them as low as Muslims.

The study examined the popularity of different ‘religious groups’, however I ask myself whether the same results were repeated if the study was set to verify the popularity of the ‘Jewish people’?

Britain dies of shame - by Stuart Littlewood

“We have spoken to Israel for more than 18 years and the result has been zero. We have signed agreements here and there at various times and then when there is a change in the government of Israel we have to start again from the beginning. We ask for our life and to be given back our Jerusalem, to be given our state and for enough water to drink. We want to be given more opportunity to reach Jerusalem. I have not seen Jerusalem since 1990.

“We want to see an end to this occupation, and please do not ask us to protect those who are occupying our territory.”…..Fr Manuel Mussallam

Palestinian Resistance: an icon for those who long to live free - by Susan Abulhawa

Palestinians have done it all. We choose resistance, always, in all its forms. We resist because it is our right. Because we are the indigenous people of the land and we have nowhere else to go or belong. Because our parents, grandparents, great grandparents and on and on are buried in this soil. Because we are right and our cause is just. We resist passively and actively. We resist violently and non-violently. It is our legal and moral right to resist with whatever means available to us against what has been accurately called “incremental genocide.”

Christian Evangelicals Turning Backs on Israel

• Blind support for genocidal policies of Zionist state no longer a prerequisite for salvation.

Zionists are worried.

For decades, conservative evangelical Christians have been among the most fervent backers of the terroristic, rogue nuclear, apartheid Zionist occupation government in the Holy Land, known as Israel. They typically also have failed, knowingly or not, to acknowledge even basic human rights for the oppressed native Palestinians—Muslim and Christian—who face racial extinction at the hands of the region’s Jewish overlords. But that seemingly impregnable mountain of support has started to erode. A growing minority of ministers and younger believers have begun to challenge the established doctrine and practice, asserting that Zionism is contrary to God’s teaching in the Bible, and that continued persecution of Palestinians is a gross violation of fundamental morality.

Children Exposed To Religion Have Difficulty Distinguishing Fact From Fiction, Study Finds

Young children who are exposed to religion have a hard time differentiating between fact and fiction, according to a new study published in the July issue of Cognitive Science.

Researchers presented 5- and 6-year-old children from both public and parochial schools with three different types of stories -- religious, fantastical and realistic –- in an effort to gauge how well they could identify narratives with impossible elements as fictional.

The study found that, of the 66 participants, children who went to church or were enrolled in a parochial school were significantly less able than secular children to identify supernatural elements, such as talking animals, as fictional.

An Orthodox Final Solution

• Struggling to survive, throngs of homeless are pushed out of N.J.’s “Tent City” to make way for construction of massive “yeshivas” subsidized by taxpayers.

LAKEWOOD, N.J.—One of the more biting ironies of recession-plagued America is the drama unfolding in the suburban town of Lakewood, New Jersey, where the homeless in that Ocean County township are being forced to defend themselves not just against the elements and regular police harassment, but against the powerful Orthodox Jewish community intent on stripping the last ounce of dignity from these down-on-their-luck Americans.

Types With Tired Fingers

I have recently had a religious epiphany. I have decided to convert to the Sun Dance faith. This is a religion practiced by many of the North American native people for thousands of years. It's easy to be a Sun Dancer; you can see the Sun! That's a definite plus compared to religions relying on that imaginary playmate in the sky.

I have long felt a kinship with my newly adopted religion and people as you can see in this photo of myself and my wife from the early 1990s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 800 AD, a bunch of Central Asian Khazars converted to Judaism, and now because they have adopted the religion of the ancient Hebrews claim a higher right to the lands of Palestine than the Palestinians who have been there for two thousand years.

This article points out the silliness of that claim!

Where are the *&%#$*@ sanctions against Israel for the genocide happening in Gaza? How come Israel can murder whoever they want?

Israel has murdered over 600 people in a few days time but I am not hearing the U.S., EU or anyone else calling for sanctions against them.

Remember Syria? The lies of a chemical attack last year? Remember how the U.S. and the world were outraged? BUT Israel can get away with $%^&*# murdering everyone they want... and #$%^&*@ Silence from every government!

Israel is not the chosen country of the world in God's eyes. The Jews are not the chosen people of the world in Gods eyes. We All are chosen people, including the Palestinians! They have the right to live their lives in Freedom and liberty without being massacred by Israel!

Enough is enough! If Russia was doing to East Ukraine what Israel is doing to Gaza we would be in WW3 with the U.S. and EU bombing Russia. Yet Israel can do as they please and murder who ever they please.

Rejecting victimhood: the case for Palestinian resistance

I wonder whether, when the settler-colonial army of Israel is pounding Gaza, Palestinians should grab guitars, pianos, and white ribbons, look up at their oppressors flying over their heads in apaches and F16s, and sing a lullaby of peace. Perhaps, then, we can impress Middle East “experts” and “non-violent resistance” -mind you, I am using the V word- butterflies. I wonder, moreover, what authority, defined by what experience, entitles these experts and butterflies to ask us, the Palestinians, to put down our arms. Nonsense.

Obama Admin Planned Children Invasion

Documents show that since 2012, Catholic and Baptist agencies have

for the "Unaccompanied Alien Children Project."
Since last October, over 60,000 Central American children
have flooded into the US.

Catholic bishops and Catholic Charities have been in collusion with the Obama Administration - in violation of "separation of church and state"

Why I, as a Muslim, am launching a campaign to ban the burka in Britain

Dr Taj Hargey is the Imam of the Oxford Islamic Congregation and the Director of the Muslim Educational Centre of Oxford

Supporters of this garment like to pretend that it is a welcome symbol of our society’s multicultural diversity and philosophical tolerance. But such warped thinking is woefully misguided. In reality, the burka is an archaic tribal piece of cloth that is eagerly used by fundamentalist zealots to promote a toxic brand of extremist non-Koranic theology.

Everyone in Britain, including Muslims, should oppose the insidious spread of this vile piece of clothing, which imprisons women, threatens social harmony, fuels distrust, has grave health implications and is a potent security risk.

Contrary to the claims of its advocates, it has nothing to do with Islam but is a cultural fad imported from Saudi Arabia and primitive parts of the Islamic world.

Irish gov confirms 2,000 babies illegally sent to US for adoption

The Irish government has confirmed that the remains of almost 500 “unclaimed” infants were used for medical examinations and nearly 2,000 were put up for adoption in the United States.

A document released by the government also shows that the remains of 474 babies were sent to medical schools between 1940 and 1965, without the consent of their families.

The report also shows that of the nearly 2,000 children sent to the United States for adoption there are few or no records of parental consent. Many were apparently sold to wealthy Catholic families.

Church child abuse scandal: Archbishop of Canterbury Welby warns of more revelations

Disgraced vicars convicted of child sex attacks have abused their former Church titles by posing as respected members of society, victims claimed last night, after the Archbishop of Canterbury warned that new cases of abuse by clergy were likely to emerge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Pope's claim that only 2% of clergy are sexual predators struck me as a bit low, given that the Catholic church admitted back in the 1990s that the figure was closer to 11%.

He also said that many more in the Church are guilty of covering it up, adding: ‘This state of affairs is intolerable.’

Israel’s message to the Palestinians: Submit, leave or die

Israel’s message is clear is that the military operations had a purpose of their own, that they would have been launched regardless, that they were merely waiting on a pretext. They had to come because the vacuum left by Kerry had to be filled. “Closure” was necessary – and it was clear that the Palestinian Authority, which had several months to take an initiative that would have bolstered the Palestinians’ position, would not do so, even though Martin Indyk, the American’s chief negotiator and former AIPAC leader, placed the blame squarely on Israel for talks’ failure.

Justice Corrupted – An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

Vatican Bank Profits Plunge Following Clean-Up

It seems not even The Pope's private bank can make money when its only allowed to do it the legal way. As The FT reports, profits at the Vatican bank plunged last year after thousands of accounts were closed as part of an overhaul of the scandal-ridden institution. The Vatican bank, officially known as the Institute for Religious Works (IOR), now has 17,419 customers, down from 18,900 in 2012 and net profit fell from EUR86.6m in 2012 to EUR2.9m last year. So - in sum - accounts fell 8% and profits collapsed 97% - is it any wonder Pope Francis plans to replace the board and all the executives at the 'bank'.

Pope Alexander VI, the Pope who threw orgies in the Vatican!

"Once he became Pope Alexander VI, Vatican parties, already wild, grew wilder. They were costly, but he could afford the lifestyle of a Renaissance prince; as vice chancellor of the Roman Church, he had amassed enormous wealth. As guests approached the papal palace, they were excited by the spectacle of living statues: naked, gilded young men and women in erotic poses. Flags bore the Borgia arms, which, appropriately, portrayed a red bull rampant on a field of gold. Every fete had a theme. One, known to Romans as the Ballet of the Chestnuts, was held on October 30, 1501. The indefatigable Burchard describes it in his Diarium. After the banquet dishes had been cleared away, the city's fifty most beautiful whores danced with the guests, "first clothed, then naked." The dancing over, the "ballet" began, with the Pope and two of his children in the best seats.

New book by Tel Aviv historian uncovers "Land of Israel" myths

In the Hebrew Bible (known to Christians as the Old Testament), the geographic area roughly corresponding to the land of Palestine (between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea) is mostly called the “land of Canaan.” The area “never served as a homeland for the ‘children of Israel,’ and for this reason, among others, they never refer to it as ‘the Land of Israel.’” Most Israelis, Sand argues, are not aware that the term is not found in the the Hebrew Bible “in its inclusive meaning” of a wide geographic area (86).

Later Jewish religious law “does feature the debut of the term ‘Land of Israel’?” but, Sand explains, this was a “holy land” rather than a “homeland” (102). Most Jews did not seek to live there. Philo of Alexandria, a first century Jewish philosopher, lived in Egypt — right next to Palestine. He could have moved to Jerusalem, since both regions were under Roman rule — but instead, like most people, he chose to live and die in his original homeland (96).

Special Report, FBI Killed Franklin Scandal Investigator from Wayne Madsen Report

A very knowledgeable source involved with what became known as the “Franklin Scandal” told WMR that Caradori flew to Chicago ostensibly to attend the All Star game on July 10 at Wrigley Field. In reality, the trip to the game was a cover for Caradori to meet with a source who handed him photographs that proved that Nebraskan children, some from the famed Boy’s Town orphanage, were being used for the sexual gratification of important political leaders in Washington, including Vice President and President George H W Bush.

Caradori phoned his wife and another investigator shortly before the All-Star game and told them the same thing: “I got what I came after. I got ‘em by the balls. I’ve got pictures. I will take them to the game and bring them back to Nebraska.”

Presbyterian Church (USA) Makes Controversial Divestment Move Against Israel

The largest U.S. Presbyterian church narrowly voted Friday to divest from three multinational corporations that it said supply Israel with products that promote violence in occupied Palestinian territories.

The divestment, vehemently opposed by many of the nation's prominent Jewish organizations, and hailed by many pro-Palestinian activists, passed by seven votes after hours of tense and complex debate. It means the Presbyterian Church (USA) will sell its shares of Motorola Solutions, Caterpillar and Hewlett Packard, worth about $21 million.

We Are So Not Prepared For Another Oil Shock

With the Middle East now lurching towards yet another major war, it’s easy to envision a supply disruption that sends oil back to its previous high or beyond. So the question becomes, what would that do to today’s hyper-leveraged global economy? Bad things, obviously. But before looking at them, let’s all get onto the same page with a quick explanation of why everyone seems so mad at everyone else over there:

The story begins in 570 A.D. in what is now Saudi Arabia, with the birth of a boy named Muhammad into a family of successful merchants. After having some adventures and marrying a rich widow, around the age of 40 he begins having visions and hearing voices which lead him to write a holy book called the Qur’an. More adventures follow, eventually producing a religious/political system called Islam that comes to dominate a large part of the local world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not unlike the Roman Catholic Church, which hunted down and exterminated the living descendants of the historical Jesus who claimed control of Christianity, to protect their "Apostolic descent", i.e. Popes chosen by consensus of the Cardinals.

‘Pastafarians’ fail to win official religious recognition in Austria

Pastafarianism, a movement set up partly to ridicule organised religion, has failed to win official recognition from Austria's religious authority.

The Kultusamt authority ruled Wednesday that the "Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster" was not a proper "Church" because it is not a Christian religious community.

The organisation was founded in the United States to poke fun at religious dogma and to campaign against the teaching of creationism in schools, and now has chapters in several other countries.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Don't just blame the church for Tuam, everyone covered it up

My father was a teenager when "The Quiet Man" was shot. He saw some of the filming at the Ballyglunin train station, which is on the outskirts of Tuam and just over the stone fence on the family farm.

One of the earliest and fondest memories he has centers around catching shillings on the train tracks that John Wayne threw out to himself and the other star-struck local kids on the set.

There is a cruel irony that "The Quiet Man," the most beloved movie in Irish culture, would be filmed in and around Tuam, a town that kept quiet about burying babies in the backyard even while the movie was being made.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The church is trying to shift the blame onto the general population, but ignores the fact that church's hiding scandals terrify their parishioners into silence with threats of eternal damnation for ratting out the malefactors.

‘Homosexual pedophile network' operating in US Catholic Church: Pastor

A Lutheran pastor and former US Senate candidate told Press TV on Tuesday that an “entire homosexual pedophile network” is operating within the Catholic Church in the United States.

Mark Dankof, who is also political commentator in San Antonio, Texas, condemned US church officials following reports that St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson claimed to be uncertain that sexual abuse of a child by a priest constituted a crime when he was auxiliary bishop in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis in Minnesota.

The former chancellor gave a deposition last month in a lawsuit that claims the Minnesota archdiocese and the Diocese of Winona created a public nuisance by keeping information on abusive priests secret, reported Minnesota Public Radio.

The 69-year-old Carlson also faces a massive clergy abuse lawsuit in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, where he’s served as archbishop since 2009.

Newly elected president of Southern Baptists calls homosexuality Satan’s ‘con job’

The Southern Baptist Convention this week chose a new president who has taught that homosexuality is a “con job” by Satan

At its annual convention in Baltimore this week, members of the Southern Baptist Convention elected Arkansas megachurch pastor Rev. Ronnie Floyd with 52 percent of the vote.

“It appears now that everywhere you look, everything you read and everything you hear is about the gay lifestyle,” he said. “Satan has taken his tool of homosexuality, a gross and evil sin, and done a con job on the American culture, making it seem like all is okay when you are gay.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It unfortunately appears that a complete absence of any knowledge about science is a prerequisite for becoming the President of the Southern Baptist Convention. Of course, this is one of the few Protestant denomination which forbids women from serving as pastors, so this kind of nonsense is perfectly predictable.

Sexual orientation is a spectrum, and as much a part of our DNA as our eye or hair color.

How can logical, compassionate Christians condemn what came in the DNA?!? The short answer is, they cannot.

Hard questions for the Irish over the baby skeletons in a forgotten field

Tuam: How did it come to this? That was the question the locals in Tuam, County Galway, were asking each other in the shops and on street corners last weekend, reflecting on the shocking news that their town was apparently the site of a mass infant grave.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This problem is not confined to Ireland. All across Canada, at the church-run residential schools, similar mass graves have been found.

What is happening with the possible mass grave of children in Tuam?

IN THE SPACE of two weeks, the story about a mass grave at a former mother and baby home in Galway has grown from something that was just talked about locally in Tuam to a worldwide news story.

The oh-so-gradual unfolding of the story, beginning in the 1970s with the discovery of multiple skeletons, seemed to take people by surprise. After breaking in the media almost a fortnight ago, it took more than a week before any politician made a comment about it, and it was days before national mainstream outlets covered it.

Here, we look at how the story has unfolded, and all of the many, many questions that still remain.

Boys Town founder Fr. Flanagan warned Irish Church about abuse

Father Edward Flanagan, founder of “Boys Town” made famous by the Spencer Tracy movie, was a lone voice in condemning Ireland’s industrial schools back in the 1940s – and he was viciously castigated by church and government for doing so.

Fr. Flanagan, from Co. Roscommon, left Ireland in 1904 and was ordained a priest eight years later. In 1917 he was living and working in Omaha, Nebraska, when he hit upon the idea of a "boys town," which offered education and a home for the poor and wayward boys of Omaha.

However, demand for the service was so great that he soon had to find bigger premises. Boys Town, built on a farm 10 miles from Omaha, was the result.

The center was open to all. There were no fences to stop the boys from leaving. Fr. Flanagan said he was “not building a prison."

"This is a home," he said. "You do not wall in members of your own family.”

Top doctor and midwife reported dreadful conditions in [Catholic care] homes

As the anger over the treatment of unmarried mothers and babies in Tuam, County Galway where 800 babies ended up in a mass grave has increased, other unmarried mother institutions are again being examined.

The doctor who shut down the unmarried mothers home run by the Sacred Heart nuns in Bessborough, County Cork in 1951 left a vivid memoir in which he recounts how dreadful and fatal the conditions were there.

Dr. James Feeney, the health board’s Chief Medical Officer, visited Bessborough to investigate the horrific death rate in the home, where 100 out of 180 babies born there had died.

Unmarried mothers, kids, in Tuam were scorned and shunned

“You would not talk to them,” the locals told me in Tuam near Galway City this weekend, “they were outcasts.”

They were speaking to IrishCentral about the mothers and babies secreted away to The Home, an 1840’s institution run by the Bon Secours sisters in the town from 1925 to 1961, but this week locals insisted that more and more people want to remember them now.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe the mothers can be faulted for yielding to their instincts in the face of religious rules designed to protect inheritances. I would question that. Adultery means married people having sex with someone other than their spouse. This commandment was about protecting the wealth of the male rulers, in making sure it was passed on to their real heirs and not offspring fathered by someone else. It was all about the money, and history has shown that women were punished severely for the crime of adultery while men were merely winked at!

But these Irish girls were not married, so the 7th Commandment doesn't really apply to them at all, when you think about it. The general condemnation of all sex arose when the Catholic Church invented the vow of celibacy to stem the tide of financial losses from supporting all the children being fathered by the clergy. Originally, the clergy were SUPPOSED to be married!

"A bishop must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach;" -- 1 Timothy 3:2

But the Catholic church, for purely monetary reasons, ignored the bible and demanded all clergy be celibate. This seems to have sparked an attitude of ,"If I can't have sex then nobody can!!!!", along with the transition to buggering boys who would not produce offspring demanding financial support.

It's all very grey for the poor mothers, but I have to question the "holiness" of in institution that stigmatized the children for something they had no control over, and allowed starvation, maltreatment, and even illegal medical experiments to happen to them. This is not the kind of job performance we expect to see on the resume of a supposed divine being and his representatives on Earth!

Ireland finally admits state collusion in Magdalene Laundry system

After more than seven decades of exploitation and a 10-year struggle for justice, Ireland on Tuesday admitted its role in the enslavement of thousands of women and girls in the notorious Magdalene Laundry system, but stopped short of issuing a formal apology from the government.

A long-awaited report headed by Senator Martin McAleese said there was "significant state involvement" in how the laundries were run – a reversal of the official state line for years, which insisted the institutions were privately controlled and run by nuns.

But the Irish Premier Enda Kenny's failure to give the women and their supporters a full, formal, public apology in the Dail on Tuesday afternoon has infuriated the victims and their supporters, who said such an approach risked undermining Ireland's attempt to right a historic wrong. Instead Kenny stated his "regret" about the stigma hanging over the women.

The Magdalene Laundry

Someone once said the only thing really new in the world is the history we don't know. The Irish people are learning that right now and it's a painful experience.

It began five years ago when an order of nuns in Dublin sold off part of its convent to real estate developers. On that property were the remains of 133 women buried in unmarked graves, and buried with them was a scandal.

As it turns out, the women had been virtual prisoners, confined by the Catholic Church behind convent walls for perceived sins of the flesh, and sentenced to a life of servitude in something called the Magdalene laundries.

It sounds medieval, something that happened hundreds of years ago, but, in fact, the last Magdalene laundry closed just over two years ago. And as the story was firstly reported in 1999, revelations have shocked the Irish people, embarrassed the Catholic Church and tarnished the country's image.

Catholic Mass Grave Sites Of 350,800 Missing Children Found in Ireland, Spain, Canada

The atrocity of close to 800 emaciated childrens’ bodies buried in a Irish Nuns’ septic tank represented the 34th child mass grave site linked this week to the Catholic Church. Pope Francis was being prosecuted by the International Common Law Court of Justice (ICLCJ) in Brussels for allegedly trafficking 300,000 children of political prisoners through Vatican Catholic Charities during Argentine’s Dirty War. According to witness testimony last week some of those orphans ended up in a child mass grave site in Spain. Last year’s ICLCJ prosecution concerned 50,000 missing native Canadian children. There have been 32 child mass grave sites uncovered so far in Canada, most of them on Catholic-run native residential school grounds.

Religious orders allowed over 2,000 Irish children to be used in medical experiments

More than 2000 Irish children in religious run homes were subjected to drugs trials in the 1930s according to a shocking new report.

As the Tuam burial ground scandal erupts, it has now emerged that Catholic Church run homes and state institutions let the children of unmarried mothers be used in medical experiments.

The Irish Daily Mail has published a damning report which outlines how scientists secretly vaccinated more than 2,000 children in religious-run homes in suspected illegal drug trials.

Thousands of children in Irish care homes at centre of 'baby graves scandal' were used in secret vaccine trials in the 1930s

Scientists secretly vaccinated more than 2,000 children in religious-run homes in suspected illegal drug trials, it emerged today.

Old medical records show that 2,051 children and babies in Irish care homes were given a one-shot diphtheria vaccine for international drugs giant Burroughs Wellcome between 1930 and 1936.

There is no evidence that consent was ever sought, nor any records of how many may have died or suffered debilitating side-effects as a result.

Mass grave at Galway home not the only one, says Irish leader Kenny

The mass grave of 796 children at a former home for unwed mothers and children in Tuam, Co. Galway is likely not the only one of its kind in Ireland, Prime Minister Enda Kenny has said.

A government investigation launched in wake of the shocking discovery will focus on all of the former so-called ‘mother and baby homes’ in Ireland, it was announced yesterday.

Pope Francis sacks entire board of Vatican's financial watchdog

Pope Francis sacked the five-man board of the Vatican's financial watchdog on Thursday - all Italians - in the latest move to break with an old guard associated with a murky past under his predecessor.

The Vatican said the pope named four experts from Switzerland, Singapore, the United States and Italy to replace them on the board of the Financial Information Authority (AIF), the Holy See's internal regulatory office. The new board includes a woman for the first time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The last Pope to take on the Vatican's money-junkies was Pope John Paul I, so be careful who hands you the cup of tea, Francis.

Manslaughter claim in deaths of 800 children in Galway Home

An Irish politician has called what happened with the deaths of 800 children at a religious-run unmarried mothers home in Tuam in Galway between 1925 and 1961 “manslaughter.”

Hildegarde Naughton, a Fine Gael Senator from Galway, claimed in the Irish Senate that what had occurred at the mothers and babies home was in fact criminal.

The shocking revelation that 796 babies died and were buried in an unmarked grave in a septic tank in the mother and baby home in Tuam, County Galway continues to reverberate.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS …

It isn’t every year that holidays fall on the same days considering we are using different calendars.. this year they do.

The Kings of the Highlife and the Cannibal Pigs.

They call it Good Friday. I call it tomorrow and if you think about it, that's not irreverent. I still don't understand why they don't call it Bad Friday but... I do get the point of the sacrifice implied. I'm also pretty sure that it's also one of those roses by any other name, though traditionalists from the 'my way or the highway' demographic may beg to differ, though I don't think the word 'beg' will actually be included in the response. Mithra! It's getting deep in here (good thing I edit before posting, I'd left the last 'e' off of 'here'), speaking of other things which also smell by any other name, which I wasn't but... what difference does that make?

Fired For Using Birth Control? It Could Be Possible In Arizona

A proposed law in Arizona could give employers the right to fire women who use birth control. The bill, which sailed right through the state’s Senate Judiciary Committee, grants employers the right to ask for proof that contraceptives are being taken for non-contraceptive reasons.

A Menace To The Catholic Plutocracy

Those of you who have read these virtual pages over the years know that I don't believe the Catholic Church was ever a spiritual one but a political one. It was founded to be the state religion of the Roman empire and was the corrupt king maker in much of Europe until the reformation. With 24/7 instant news it became difficult to hide that corruption when the victims of pedophile priests started coming forward. Now the conservative plutocrats that make up the Catholic hierarchy are fighting back proving once again there is very little spirituality involved but a lot of politics and lust for power.
