Post Date: 2018-05-06 11:15:48 by Willie Green
Australian children as young as 12 are being asked explicit questions about their sexual thoughts and whether they masturbate, as adult male religious figures in the Mormon church use one-on-one interviews to test children's sexual "purity".The invasive questioning has been described as an "abuse" of children, according to leaked correspondence from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.Mormons regard sexual purity as a key tenet of their faith and regard breaches sex out of marriage, sex between gay couples, even masturbation as being next to murder in terms of sinfulness.Stephanie McLean, who was brought up in the ...

Recently the Huffington Post published an interview with Malcom Brenner, who had sex with a dolphin. He defended his bestiality, saying: And Im hoping that in a more enlightened future, zoophilia will be no more regarded as controversial or harmful than interracial sex is today. For those who have watched the steady descent of the sexual revolution into an abyss of deviancy, there is not much that surprises. Many predicted the results of following the If it feels good, do it mantra of the 60s would mean open season on all Christian sexual mores. They have watched as the so-called freedom of sexual choice has become so absolute that even pedophilia is viewed ...
Does The Celestial-Geophysical-Historical Time Clock Provide Evidence For An Easter Crucifixion & Resurrection?
Post Date: 2018-03-28 09:15:53 by Deckard
Is there any evidence outside of the Bible that the Resurrection of Jesus was a real historical event rather than a myth or an allegory? Unfortunately, there is no time machine to go back in history and confirm this event that is memorialized in the way the western world divides modern from ancient history, B.C and A.D. However there is, surprisingly, evidence revealed from celestial, geophysical and historical accounts outside of the Bible that confirm this event. According to Wikipedia, Easter (aka Resurrection Sunday) is a remembrance of the resurrection of Jesus from the dead (~30 A.D.) as described in the New Testament. Jesus was crucified, that is, hung on a wooden cross, nailed ...
Catholic bishop denies Senator Durbin communion until he repents
Post Date: 2018-02-24 10:21:06 by Tooconservative
A Catholic bishop in Senator Dick Durbins Illinois diocese has issued a statement that Durbin will be denied communion until he repents for his sin of blocking a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks. Finally, a pro-abortion Democrat is being held accountable for political votes by the Catholic church. Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois says Durbin is cooperating in evil and persisting in manifest grave sin because of his abortion advocacy and must therefore not be admitted to Holy Communion until he repents of his sin. In a statement on the Diocese of Springfield website, Bishop Paprocki said, Fourteen ...
They called me a stupid German whore

The following is a documentation of an interview with the German artist, activist for the rights of indigenous peoples, and UN advisor Rebecca Sommer, by the Polish website EuroIslam from January 18, 2018. Rebecca used to support Muslim refugees in Germany, and describes how her experience made her gradually change her mind over core issues. It is a long text but well worth the read. Please note that there is currently a mistranslation circulating, claiming that she said to she was moving to Poland. This is inaccurate; she said she knows Germans who are moving to Poland. Thanks to Ava Lon for the translation. Natalia Osten-Sacken: Rebecca, youve worked many years with ...

Pastor Begley: Melania Trump Demanded Spiritual Cleansing of WH, Removal of Pagan, Demonic Idols While commenting on President Donald Trump's very public support for Christianity, as well as the frequent Bible studies and prayer gatherings held at the White House, evangelical Pastor Paul Begley said first lady Melania Trump demanded that the White House be spiritually cleansed and that pagan, demonic items and artificats from the Obama and Clinton years be removed. Melania Trump reportedly said, "Im not going to go into that White House unless it has been completely exorcised," according to Pastor Begley. One thing was left, a cross on the wall.

First-century Mark: More Information!
Post Date: 2018-01-30 14:29:37 by redleghunter
Back in 2012 there were statements a fragment from the Gospel of Mark was found in a mummy mask. Initial dating estimates put the date within the 1st Century AD. Below is an update on the latest information and why the process to publish the results have been delayed. Remember the announcement in 2012 about the existence of a first-century manuscript-fragment from the Gospel of Mark? Here we are five years later, and after various rumors have come and gone, it has still not been published. This has led some folks to suspect that the announcement might have been premature, or that the dating must be wildly inaccurate, or even that it was all some sort of groundless claim. ...

Pope Francis releases 2018 World Communications Day messageIn his message for the World Communications Day 2018, Pope Francis calls for a journalism for peace in response to the threat of fake news, which thrives on the absence of healthy confrontation with other sources of information. Pope Francis on Wednesday released his message for World Communications Day, which is held annually on the Sunday before Pentecost, falling this year on 13 May 2018. The truth will set you free (Jn 8:32). Fake news and journalism for peace is the theme of the Popes message. The Holy Father explores what makes fake news fake, how to recognize it, ...
New Libertarian Convert Asks Ron Paul Into His Heart

KANSAS CITY, MOWhile browsing memes on a popular libertarian meme Facebook page, local man Kyle Coats reportedly felt himself cut to the heart Wednesday, grabbing a Gadsden flag he had recently purchased and darting outside into the afternoon sun where he dropped to his knees and asked Ron Paul to come into his heart, once and for all, fully committing his life to the ideals of liberty he stands for. The man bowed his head and closed his eyes and asked the popular libertarian leader to come into his life and reign as his lord and savior. Ron, would you come into my life and make me new? he whispered privately to himself, a single tear streaming down his ...
All Hail The Chronic: Introducing Bizarre Pot Churches
Post Date: 2018-01-13 10:27:09 by Tooconservative
Prepare ye, the way of the chronic. Welcome to the age of marijuana-laden church services, where stoners gather to worship God by getting high, according to California Healthline. Breathe deep and blow harder," Pastor Grant Atwell tells those in his congregation as he passes out marijuana joints. Nail the insight down, whether you get it from marijuana or prayer. Consider what in your own life you are thankful for. Thank you, God, for the weed, responds a middle-aged man. Im thankful for the spirit of cannabis, says one woman. I am grateful to be alive, says another. Though the church adopts some Christian symbolism and ...
Evangelical Christians 'uncritical' in support for Trump, senior bishop says

Paul Bayes, bishop of Liverpool, accuses some religious leaders of colluding with a system that marginalises the poor A senior Church of England bishop has lambasted conservative evangelical Christians in the US for their uncritical support of Donald Trump, urging them to reflect on how their endorsement of the president relates to their faith. Paul Bayes, the bishop of Liverpool, said self-styled evangelicals risked bringing the word evangelical into disrepute, and added there was no justification for Christians contradicting Gods teaching to protect the poor and the weak. Bayes told the Guardian: Some of the things that have been said ...

Evangelical leader asks how white Christians can support Trump
Post Date: 2017-12-18 11:02:51 by Willie Green
HELENA, Ark. I can remember moments of spiritual euphoria from my youthful days in church when I raised my hands toward the ceiling, closed my eyes, and received a vision from the Holy Spirit, one of blacks and whites equal and united.It was a recurring image in my mind in those days of heightened religious zeal, and adulthood never stole the dream from me. I remained convinced that the teachings of the Christian faith held the greatest promise for overcoming racism.This is a common desire among Christians of all political stripes. I grew up in a conservative evangelical culture, and many right-wing Republicans I knew believed that Christianity had the potential to tear down the ...

Tao Te Ching
Post Date: 2017-11-08 12:01:18 by A Pole
The Tao that can be known is not Tao.
The substance of the World is only a name for Tao.
Tao is all that exists and may exist;
The World is only a map of what exists and may exist.
One experiences without Self to sense the World,
And experiences with Self to understand the World.
The two experiences are the same within Tao;
They are distinct only within the World.
Neither experience conveys Tao
Which is infinitely greater and more subtle than the World.
When Beauty is recognized in the World
Ugliness has been learned;
When Good is recognized in the World
Evil has been learned.
In this way:
Alive and dead are abstracted from ...
Getting High and Holy at the International Church of Cannabis
Post Date: 2017-11-08 10:11:41 by Gatlin
Steve Berke, founder of the Denver nonprofit religious organization Elevation Ministries, stands on stage at his brand new International Church of Cannabis and takes two deep drags from a hefty joint. He closes his eyes, raises his head skyward, and exhales. In the wooden pews facing him, 50 or so people follow his lead. Smoke rises toward the heavens, settling in among the vivid Technicolor murals spread across the vaulted ceiling. This minute of silence, a quiet celebration of the sacrament of cannabis held every day at 4:20 p.m., is apparently as religious as the International Church of Cannabis gets. Elevationism boasts no other regular services, no doctrine, no divine law, ...

In Bombshell Letter, Ex-Bishops’ Doctrine Chief Accuses Pope Francis of Sowing ‘Chronic Confusion’
Post Date: 2017-11-02 21:16:56 by cranky
The former doctrinal chief of the U.S. Bishops Conference (USCCB) has written a forceful letter to Pope Francis, criticizing the pontiffs intentionally ambiguous teaching, derision of conservatives and resistance to constructive criticism. Capuchin Father Thomas Weinandy, who was named to the Vaticans International Theological Commission by Pope Francis himself in 2014, told Crux that he only wrote the letter and eventually released it for publication after much prayer and discernment, as Pope Francis often recommends. If I did write something, I wanted it to be of help to Pope Francis, to the Church, and to the faithful, he said. Although Weinandy wrote ...
CUFI Leader John Hagee confirms Christian Zionism is anti-Semitic
Post Date: 2017-11-01 20:57:33 by Hondo68
CUFI leader John Hagee speaks to Israel supporters at a rally at the Jerusalem convention center in 2008 (Photo: AP) Evangelical pastor John Hagee, the leader of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the US largest pro-Israel organization and the most powerful group in the Christian Zionist movement, has adamantly insisted that Christian Zionism is anti-Semitic. WorldNetDaily (WND), a far-right website published an article in March 2015 about the Blood Moon Prophecy, an end-of-times theory that lunar eclipses are a sign that the world is on the brink of destruction and that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is near. The lengthy piece is about Hagees film Four Blood ...

Heavily armed police guard as revelers march during the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017, in New York. New York City's always-surreal Halloween parade marched on Tuesday evening under the shadow of real fear, hours after a truck attack killed several people on a busy city bike path in what authorities called an act of terror. There are about 3.35 million Muslims in the United States right now, according to recent Pew Research Centers Factank figures.But by 2050, that particular population is projected to grow from about 1 percent of the U.S. population to about 2.1 percent. If it does, that means America will be home to more Muslims than Jews.Just ...

Oxford college bans 'harmful' Christian Union from freshers' fair

Oxford college bans 'harmful' Christian Union from freshers' fair An Oxford College has banned the Christian Union from its freshers fair on the grounds that it would be alienating for students of other religions, and constitute a micro-aggression. The organiser of Balliols fair argued Christianitys historic use as an excuse for homophobia and certain forms of neo-colonialism meant that students might feel unwelcome in their new college if the Christian Union had a stall. Freddy Potts, vice-president of Balliols Junior Common Room (JCR) committee, said that if a representative from the Christian Union (CU) ...
Pope Francis Is Just Like Donald Trump
Post Date: 2017-10-03 19:04:24 by Tooconservative
With the norm-demolishing, nationalist-establishment civil war in Americas Republican party, we sometimes lose sight of what the other great disruptor is doing over in Europe. Im talking about Pope Francis, of course, and his attempt to drain the Catholic Churchs swamp. I used to think of Francis as the David Souter of Rome. But the deeper we get into his papacy, the clearer it is that hes incredibly similar to President Trump. Francis doesnt read, or seem overly concerned with policy or theology. Hes dismissive of long-standing traditions and established theological experts and instead wants the Church to be more populist. Hes prone ...

The Devil-as-myth view is Satans right-hand punch. If that one doesnt get you, then watch out for his left hook. The left-hand attack moves the disinformation to the opposite extreme. If Satan cant get you to ignore him by denying his very existence, he will cunningly lead you to attribute power to him far beyond what he actually possesses. He will seek to persuade you that he is virtually equal to God. Dualism, as a philosophy and a religion, has vied with Christianity from the beginning. Dualism affirms that the universe is the staging area, the combat zone, for two equal and opposite beings who struggle with each other eternally. Satan is falsely described in terms of ...
