‘Wrong on so many levels’: Priest paraded through town in Porsche pulled by children (VIDEO)

A newly appointed parish priest is being accused of using his stature to put on a “ostentatious” public display, during which children were seen pulling a Porsche through the streets of a Maltese town with the clergyman inside.

Fr John Sultana, who this week was named the new parish priest for Gozitan community, Malta, was honored with a traditional parade by local followers. However, the pastor’s use of a rather luxurious vehicle and manner in which he was heralded into his new role has drawn widespread criticism.

Unusual Statues Of Jesus Christ (10 Pics)

There is a statue of a black Jesus at the Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit. The statue used to be white but was repainted black during the Detroit race riots of 1967.It was no surprise that the statue was repainted black. Blacks were rioting for increased representation and an end to discrimination at the time. And the seminary was located in a black neighborhood.

Atheist United Church minister keeps her job; 'heresy trial' called off

A United Church minister who had faced an unprecedented ecclesiastical court hearing over her professed atheism is no longer in danger of a defrocking after the two sides reached an agreement in the long-running case.

In an unexpected development this week, Rev. Gretta Vosper and the church settled ahead of what some had dubbed a "heresy trial," leaving her free to minister to her east-end Toronto congregation.

"It's going to be wonderful," Vosper said in an interview Friday. "We'll be out from underneath that heavy cloud. Now we'll be able to really fly."

The settlement, the terms of which are confidential, came during what was supposed to be a week of routine preliminary motions ahead of the full hearing later in the month.

Survivors call Vatican telling US bishops to wait on abuse ‘totally unacceptable’

Following Monday’s shock announcement that the Vatican has requested the U.S. Catholic Bishops to delay voting on new standards for bishop accountability, survivors of sexual abuse and bishop accountability activists decried the move as “totally unacceptable.”

Terence McKiernan, co-director of BishopAccountability.org, called the move a “preemptive strike” by the Vatican against U.S. bishops as they seek to respond to the current crisis of sexual abuse and its cover-up “in a modest way.”

Peter Isley, a survivor of clerical sexual abuse who now works with the organization Ending Clergy Abuse, said the decision from the Vatican effectively means, “We care more about our organization and our princely titles and positions” than enacting measures of accountability.

Vatican orders US bishops to delay taking action on sexual abuse crisis

The Vatican has told the US Conference of Catholic Bishops to delay voting on measures to hold bishops accountable for failing to protect children from sexual abuse, the president of the conference said in a surprise announcement Monday morning.

In his announcement, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo said he was “disappointed” by the Vatican’s decision, which he said he learned of on Sunday afternoon. Pope Francis met with his ambassador to the United States, Archbishop Christophe Pierre, on Saturday, according to the pope’s public schedule.

Pierre is in Baltimore and addressed the body of bishops on Monday morning, though he did not mention the Vatican’s insistence that the US bishops delay their vote. The US Conference of Catholic Bishops gathers about 200 bishops from around the country twice a year to debate and adopt new policies.

Muslims Shouting About Killing Jews Interrupt London Event

As about 20 Muslims interrupted a vigil, some brought up an event from early Islamic history, when Muhammed’s followers killed, injured, and displaced crowds of Jews from the town of Khaybar.

A vigil organized by pro-Israel activists in London’s Hyde Park, famous for being a free speech area, appeared to be severely interrupted and then dispersed altogether by men shouting anti-Jewish chants in Arabic, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

A few dozen people waving Israeli flags with candles in their hands gathered there ahead of the so-called Kristallnacht remembrance day, commemorating victims of the Nazi pogrom of 1938, as well as Jews killed and wounded across the Arab world.

Joseph Cohen, an Israel advocacy Movement campaigner, was filming the event when 20 men chimed in shouting:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am very grateful to be living in a "rainbow state", where people do not judge others by their faith, but what they do with their lives.

And to the guys who thought disrupting this event was a "great idea", actually, no, it sure as heck was not.

Blaming, accusing, and disrupting an event is easy; working with each other, in a dignified and respectful way that leads to moral, responsible conflict resolution, is the hardest thing in the world to do.

And yet, that is what we must commit ourselves to doing at this part of the 21st century, if we want there to be a future for humankind.

The Fraud of 'Antisemitism' and 'Hate Speech' | exposed by Righteous Jews [Dave Rubin & Milo]

"Anti-Semitism is the same kind of bogus thing as crying racism and crying sexism... We do run everything. Facts can't be racist. Jews are vastly overrepresented in the media; vastly overrepresented in banking... My mother is Jewish so according to Jewish law I'm Jewish... They know the jig is up... These people know; it's starting to dawn on them. They are starting to get the message that saying 'racist' is not going to shut people up anymore. It doesn't shut me up. Now you've got to come with facts."

Federal Land Transfer: Privatization of America's Wealth

Wherever you see a politician or lobbyist who is in favor of transferring public lands out of the federal domain, you will likely see a certain map created and is distributed by the American Lands Council, a Utah-based group that is dead-set against the federal land estate.

The map shows much of the West in blood red ink, according to ALC illustrating the vast reach of the federal government. But that map also fails to tell the truth. For one thing, it’s bright red color is no accident. Red is what psychologists call a “trigger” color. Red is equated with danger, risk and warnings.

Washington state lawmaker Matt Shea defends advocacy for ‘Holy Army’ as Spokane sheriff refers his writings to FBI

Washington state Rep. Matt Shea acknowledged Wednesday he had distributed a four-page manifesto titled “Biblical Basis for War,” which describes the Christian God as a “warrior,” details the composition and strategies of a “Holy Army” and condemns abortion and same-sex marriage.

The document is organized in 14 sections with multiple tiers of bullet points and a smattering of biblical citations. Under one heading, “Rules of War,” it makes a chilling prescription for enemies who flout “biblical law.”

After the document was leaked online Tuesday, the Spokane Valley Republican insisted he was not promoting violence and that the message had been taken out of context.

Breaking with tradition

Did the events depicted in the Bible really take place, and did the people mentioned really exist? In their popular book The Bible Unearthed: Archaeology's New Vision of Ancient Israel and the Origin of Its Sacred Texts, archeologists Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman refuted the biblical portrayal of the exodus from Egypt. In their new [2007] book David and Solomon: In Search of the Bible's Sacred Kings and the Roots of the Western Tradition, they have some surprising things to say about two key biblical figures, David and Solomon ... In their book, Finkelstein and Silberman claim that the kingdoms of David and Solomon did not exist as they were described in the Bible.

The Rock of our Existence

With the coming of the Zionists to Palestine, a frantic archeological search started. The country was combed for real, scientific proof that the Biblical story was not just a bunch of myths, but real honest-to-God history ... From the beginning of the effort to this very day, not a single piece of evidence of the ancient history was found. Not a single indication that the exodus from Egypt, the basis of Jewish history, ever happened ... Even if one would like to believe that the Bible only exaggerates real events, the fact is that not even a tiny mention of the exodus, the conquest of Canaan or King David has been found. They just did not happen.
Note: 75% of the founders of Israel had never set foot in Palestine nor had any of their ancestors. Fact.

Today we're focusing our energy on what's really important. Now it's all about "cultural appropriation." White children need to "own their privilege" and not dress up and pretend to belong to a non-oppressive race.

'Sloshed' New Jersey priest who advises the Pope gets DUI for being found twice over the limit after crashing into pregnant mother on London highway

As a Vatican consultant and a former spiritual adviser to student priests in Rome, you might have expected Monsignor Anthony Figueiredo to be a model of sobriety.

But he was pictured 'visibly sloshed' with his dog collar askew after his hire car hit a pregnant solicitor's 4x4 on the M25. He was more than twice the drink-drive limit.

Figueiredo, 54, who is a priest of the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey, in the US, pulled over after the rush-hour accident and was photographed in his dishevelled state by the other driver, Olivia Parfitt, on her phone.

Bishop: ‘Europe Is Being Islamized’ Because the Church Is Asleep

An African bishop in Rome for the synod of bishops has decried the lethargy of European Christianity, saying that it opens the door to an “Islamic invasion.”
In an interview Tuesday with the U.S.-based National Catholic Register, Andrew Nkea Fuanya, the bishop of Mamfe, Cameroon, said that the synod has been ignoring Europe’s low birth rates to its own peril.

The synod fathers have not discussed Europe’s demographic implosion, which is “a very big thing” for youth, Fuanya said.

“And I will dare to say that, especially with the backdrop of the Islamic invasion, if you look through history, where the Church slept, got diverted away from the Gospel, Islam took the advantage and came in,” he said.

As in the case of many African bishops, Fuanya has seen what radical Islam looks like up close. Cameroon borders with Nigeria and Chad in the north, forming a triangle that has been the epicenter of much Islamic terror at the hands of Boko Haram, an affiliate of the Islamic State.

Wall of Holocaust Denial Begins to Topple: Aboriginal Museum is Forced to Display Evidence of the Canadian Genocide

For the first time in Canadian history, a public museum will exhibit evidence which makes reference to overtly genocidal policies by both the churches and government of Canada towards indigenous people, including in the deadly Indian residential schools.

Relying primarily on the research gathered by Rev. Kevin Annett in his book Hidden No Longer: Genocide in Canada, Past and Present (2010, www.hiddennolonger.com), the aboriginal advisory committee of the new Peel Region Heritage Museum in Brampton, Ontario convinced the Museum designers, Vilnis Cultural Design Works, to establish a display that shows that genocide, according to the United Nations’ definition of the crime, did occur in the Indian residential school system.

The schools were established and run jointly by the Vatican and the Crown of England in 1834, and continued until 1996. According to government statistics, nearly half of the 150,000 children in these schools died because of treatment and conditions there.

Jean-Marie Le Pen praises French Holocaust denier following his death in Vichy aged 89

Robert Faurisson, the first Frenchman to be convicted of Holocaust denial, has died at the age of 89. Over several decades he became his country's most notorious revisionist, having contested Anne Frank's Diary's authenticity and defended French wartime leader Philippe Petain for collaborating with Nazi Germany ... Faurisson was convicted numerous times from 1981 to 2016 repeating his revisionist comments and writings ... Jean-Marie Le Pen, who founded the far-right National Front party, said he had fought for free expression. "Faurisson is a symbol of the way free speech has been criminalised in this county," Mr Le Pen said in a statement after his death was announced. "The State went through great lengths to silence Faurisson for decades." France passed memorial laws which outlaw Holocaust denial in 1990.
Note: The reason there are laws outlawing holocau$t denial is because it is one gigantic lie and financial swindle!$$$

The Detail

On the subject of the Nazi gas chambers, Jean-Marie Le Pen recently stated: "If you take a thousand-page book on the Second World War, the concentration camps occupy two pages and the gas chambers ten or fifteen lines, and that's called a detail." He might have brought up some even harder hitting and more precise arguments, and referred to Eisenhower, Churchill, de Gaulle, Elie Wiesel, René Rémond, Daniel Goldhagen, and even the text of the Nuremberg Tribunal judgment. ... In this mass of writing, which altogether totals 7,061 pages (not including the introductory parts), published from 1948 to 1959, one will find no mention either of Nazi "gas chambers," a "genocide" of the Jews, or of "six million" Jewish victims of the war.

French Courts Punish Holocaust Apostasy: Le Pen, Faurisson, Garaudy Fined for 'Holocaust Denial'

Those who challenge the Western world's most important social-political taboo -- on the Second World War treatment of the Jews -- are routinely punished for their apostasy. France's Fabius-Gayssot law of July 13, 1990, makes it a crime to "contest" the "crimes against humanity" as defined by the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal of 1945-46 ... Faurisson and Le Pen are hardly the only ones whom Jewish groups and French officials have targeted for expressing skepticism of the officially sanctioned version of 20th century history. Other victims include Philippe Costa, Alain Guionnet and Fabrice Robert. Between July 1990 and January 1993 alone, the Fabius-Gayssot law had already been applied 27 times.

Religious Vegan Parents Convicted in Starvation Death of Son

Nearly five years after religious parents starved their toddler to death, a jury found Jennifer and Jeromie Clark guilty of criminal negligence causing death. The jury in Calgary, Canada also convicted the parents with failing to provide the necessities of life-related to the child’s death. At the time of death, the child suffered from a rash, gangrene, hypothermia, and a staph infection. Jennifer and Jeromie Clark, Seventh Day Adventists, had never taken the child to see a doctor. They only brought 14-month-old John to the hospital the day before he died. The parents starved the child to death with a strict vegan diet.

According to multiple reports, in November 2013, Jennifer and Jeromie Clark brought their son, John, to a local hospital. Doctors that treated John testified he had blisters on 70% of his body, gangrene on four toes, hypothermia, and a staph infection.

Last year, he made a third appearance at Liberty, to address the university’s graduation ceremony. By then, he was one of the most divisive leaders in the country’s history.

Which way to Mecca? Turkish imam finds faithful had been praying in wrong direction for 37 years

Muslims in a village in western Turkey have been forced to ‘realign’ their beliefs after learning that they had been praying in the wrong direction for nearly four decades due to a faulty floor plan at their local mosque.
Imam Isa Kaya decided to investigate rumors that the congregation at his mosque in the village of Sugoren had been praying facing the wrong direction. In the Islamic faith, prayers should be performed in the direction of Mecca.

After appealing to the office of the regional mufti, Kaya was shocked to learn that the gossip was true – the mosque, which had been built in 1981, suffered from an embarrassing design error: the niche in the wall of the mosque indicating the direction of Mecca was around 30 degrees off its mark.

Priest speaks out, criticises Catholic Church's handling of historic sexual abuse allegations

A Central Otago priest has broken his silence by criticising the Catholic Church's handling of historic sexual abuse allegations.

Alexandra parish priest Fr Vaughan Leslie said the church's response, within New Zealand and overseas, had helped fuel the "abuse crisis" now engulfing the church.

It had failed to remove men from ministry when credible complaints were received, and "misguided protectionism" had occurred "at the expense of truth and justice", he said.

The response also highlighted the need for culture change within the church hierarchy, here and overseas, to put an end to a situation in which "in-groups of clergy hold all the reins of power".

Pope accepts resignation of American cardinal in sex abuse scandal

Pope Francis accepted the resignation Friday of Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl after he became entangled in two major sexual abuse and cover-up scandals and lost the support of many in his flock.

But in a letter released by Wuerl’s office, Francis praised his longtime ally and suggested Wuerl had unfairly become a scapegoat, having made some “mistakes” in handling sex abuse cases, but not having covered them up.

With the resignation, Wuerl becomes the most prominent head to roll in the scandal roiling the Catholic Church after his predecessor as Washington archbishop, Theodore McCarrick, was forced to resign as cardinal over allegations he sexually abused at least two minors and adult seminarians.

A Vatican statement Friday said Francis had accepted Wuerl’s resignation, but named no replacement; Wuerl’s office provided the letter in which the pope asked him to stay on in a temporary capacity until a new archbishop is found.

TURKISH COURT FREES US PASTOR BRUNSON AFTER 2YRS IN JAIL

A Turkish court will release imprisoned US pastor Andrew Brunson, who was jailed for alleged terror links following 2016’s failed coup attempt. Brunson’s arrest has soured US-Turkish relations, with Trump pushing for his release.
Charged with terrorism offences, the court handed down a sentence of 3 years and 1-1/2 month sentence for the evangelical Christian pastor on Friday. Despite the verdict, the court also ruled that the US man would not serve any further time as he had already been detained by authorities since October 2016.

The history behind how Christmas came to be celebrated at the end of December may have little to do with the actual date of Jesus's birth.

With holiday decorations popping up in stores before kids have finished their Halloween candy, it may be hard to imagine that Christmas wasn’t always celebrated on December 25. But it wasn’t until about three centuries after the birth of Jesus that Christians began commemorating it as a holiday on December 25th.

Witches plan to put a Hex on Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Witches plan to place a public hex on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh through an occult ritual on Oct. 20 in New York City, an event sponsored by Catland Books, which describes itself as “Brooklyn’s premiere occult bookshop & spiritual community space.” The planned ritual has been advertised on Facebook.

“Please join us for a public hex on Brett Kavanaugh, upon all rapists and the patriarchy at large which emboldens, rewards and protects them,” reads the description for the event, “Ritual to Hex Brett Kavanaugh.”

“We are embracing witchcraft’s true roots as the magik of the poor, the downtrodden and disenfranchised and it’s history as often the only weapon, the only means of exacting justice available to those of us who have been wronged by men just like him,” reads the description.

“He will be the focal point, but by no means the only target, so bring your rage and all of the axes you’ve got to grind,” states Catland.

Kamikaze from California

The cult of the Holocaust retains a unique, court-enforced prohibition against any investigation that might cast a doubt on its sacred dogma ... Ron Unz, this kamikaze of critical mind from California, has stepped on the third rail knowingly, in full awareness of the consequences. He did not stop at doubting the established mantra, he also published and made available to readers and internet users some more important books on the subject ... Whether the Holocaust narrative is based on sterling facts or on exaggerations, it is good to reject it. Even if the 'deniers' are factually wrong (let us presume it for the sake of argument), they are still right with their conclusions. And Ron Unz had made an important contribution for the benefit of mankind by his publication.

American Pravda: Holocaust Denial

For decades, Hollywood has sanctified the Holocaust, and in our deeply secular society accusations of Holocaust Denial are a bit like shouting "Witch!" in Old Salem or leveling accusations of Trotskyism in the Court of the Red Czar ... As an outsider exploring this contentious topic I think it far more likely than not that the standard Holocaust narrative is at least substantially false, and quite possibly, almost entirely so. Despite this situation, the powerful media focus in support of the Holocaust over the last few decades has elevated it to a central position in Western culture. I wouldn't be surprised if it currently occupies a larger place in the minds of most ordinary folk than does the Second World War that encompassed it, and therefore possesses greater apparent reality.
Note: The holocau$t legend is proclaimed to be an historical event. As such it should be researched and examined in detail and continually for accuracy.

Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea, which has been condemned as one of the worst suppressors of religious freedom in the world, has invited Pope Francis to visit his country, South Korea’s government said Tuesday.

The invitation will be relayed by South Korea’s president, Moon Jae-in, a Roman Catholic, when he visits the Vatican for two days next week to seek the pope’s help in easing tensions on the divided Korean Peninsula, said Kim Eui-kyeom, a spokesman of Mr. Moon.

Mr. Moon met with Mr. Kim in Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, last month.

“If the pope visits Pyongyang, we will give him a rousing welcome,” Mr. Kim told Mr. Moon, according to Mr. Moon’s spokesman.

The Catholic Church’s Grim History of Ignoring Priestly Pedophilia – and Silencing Would-be Whistleblowers

As the Pennsylvania grand jury emphasized: "There have been other reports about child sexual abuse within the Catholic church… For many of us, those earlier stories happened someplace else, someplace away. Now we know the truth: it happened everywhere."

Swedish church pushes for neutral gender reference to Jesus

A church in a Swedish city has defended its choice of gender-neutral pronoun ‘hen’ in reference to Jesus in an advertisement. The church insists the word gives “new perspective.”

In November, the largest religious institution in the country, the Church of Sweden, advised its clergy to avoid terms like ‘Lord’ and ‘He’ in worship services in order to not highlight that God is male, in the new version of a handbook on how to conduct services. The move has triggered a backlash, with critics saying the change undermines the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity and politicizes faith.

Pope Francis: Divisive Devil Responsible For Catholic Pedophile Epidemic

Pope Francis - who stands accused of covering up widespread sexual abuse within the Catholic Church, says that the devil is trying to divide and attack the organization. So apparently all of the child rape isn't the priests' fault, since the devil apparently made them do it.

"(The Church must be) saved from the attacks of the malign one, the great accuser and at the same time be made ever more aware of its guilt, its mistakes, and abuses committed in the present and the past," said Francis in a September 29 message.

Francis, who has made clear that he believes the devil to be real, suggested that Catholics worldwide pray every day in the month of October to stave off the Devil and his pedophile-encouraging ways.

"We should not think of the devil as a myth, a representation, a symbol, a figure of speech or an idea. This mistake would lead us to let down our guard, to grow careless and end up more vulnerable."

At Yad Vashem, Merkel says Germany has ‘everlasting’ duty to fight anti-Semitism

German Chancellor Angela Merkel continued her 24-hour visit to Israel on Thursday with a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial museum in Jerusalem, and said Germany bore an "everlasting responsibility" to remember the tragedy and oppose anti-Semitism ... "From this comes the everlasting responsibility of Germany to remember this crime and to oppose anti-Semitism, xenophobia, hatred and violence." Later on Thursday, Merkel was meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin, and will also receive an honorary doctorate from Haifa University. Merkel, who is accompanied by much of her cabinet, a large business delegation and her new czar for combating anti-Semitism, arrived in Israel on Wednesday night ...
Note: Bet she didn't visit Gaza! This anti-semitism montra is wearing a little thin!

History Matters’ but Hope Lives Only If People Remember

Along with hundreds of thousands of commuters who use the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) in San Francisco and its suburbs, we are deeply disturbed at BART's misguided decision to allow advertising on its electronic billboards from a nefarious hate group that masks its denial of history in a veneer of pseudo-scholarship ... We wish that BART had contacted the Simon Wiesenthal Center to seek its counsel on what would be an appropriate response when first approached by the so-called Institute for Historical Review (IHR) ... The decision makers at BART appear to have a blind spot for the concerns of the Jewish community, especially Holocaust survivors and their families.
Note: Simply put the reason advocates of the holocau$t legend do not want it examined is because it is an embellished and false narrative that has brought billions of dollars into Jewish organizations.

Pope blames devil for Church divisions, scandals, seeks angel's help

The devil is alive and well and working overtime to undermine the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis says.

In fact, the pope is so convinced that Satan is to blame for the sexual abuse crisis and deep divisions racking the Church that he has asked Catholics around the world to recite a special prayer every day in October to try to beat him back.

Sino-US Tensions: Pentagon Accuses China of Threatening America’s National Security

Sino/US tensions risk boiling over into something much more serious than already.

Washington considers China’s significant political, economic, trade, and military strength as a threat to US national security.

Accusations by US officials against China, Russia, and other countries are all about wanting no nations compromising Washington’s hegemonic agenda – its aim for unchallenged control.

The Trump regime slammed what it called Beijing’s “unfair trade” and other practices, along with accusing the country of intellectual property theft, cyberwar, interfering in America’s electoral process, militarizing the South China Sea, and controlling offshore islands it claims belong to other regional countries.

The US also claims the right to conduct freedom of navigation operations close to Chinese waters its officials consider provocative.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think this paper was created in such a way as to anger the Chinese government, but also accomplish another agenda, which I will get to later in this post; that the US military is behind China, in nearly every sector of its weaponry, has to be laid squarely at the feet of the Pentagon, and those contractors with whom they are so cosy, and who give so much money to political campaigns as to prevent any reasonable, and long overdue criticisms of their products or services from harming their bottom line.

But what concerns me here, is the bristling, angry tone this takes, against both the Chinese government, and Chinese businesses, and there is a reason for that.

The Chinese are very practical, and bright, people. They understand that there are those in the bowels of power in DC who would love to see a regime change in both Russia and China. Paul Craig Roberts: Washington plans to nuke Russia and China Understanding this, can you possibly blame Chinese leadership for doing everything in its power to prevent this from happening?!?

But the belligerency here is the sort of J'accuse! rhetoric one expects to hear as the demonization prelude to a US war against China, and attempting to mold American opinion positively toward this agenda.

I frankly think that, even with the reinstitution of the draft, a war against China would be one of the most pigheadedly, ham-fistedly stupid things this government could do, and particularly at this time in our military's history. We don't have the weaponry, the manufacturing, the money, or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with China.

And if the US goes to war against China, we had better count on Russia coming in on the Chinese side of the equation. Folks, I am saying this because I care about both my country, and our military; this potential war may well not end well for the US at all.

Christian Zionists Target US Aid to Palestinian Authority

A few days ago, We Hold These Truths posted a podcast entitled “Christian Zionism is a War Based Religion,” which includes a discussion on the so-called “just war” theological doctrine often used by Christian leaders to justify their support for US wars.

I am referring, of course, to Christian leaders such as John Hagee, of Christians United for Israel, or CUFI.

Back in 2003, Hagee supported the US war in Iraq, and even later, after it became glaringly apparent there never had been any weapons of mass destruction and that Bush had lied about the war, he continued to be a vocal supporter of the US aggression.

“Christian Zionism is a war based, political religion wrapped around the notion that the modern state of Israel is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy,” reads the podcast description put up by We Hold These Truths. You can go here to listen to the podcast. It’s a fairly interesting discussion.

Vatican takes off gloves, accuses papal critic of 'calumny, defamation'

A top Vatican official on Sunday issued a scathing open letter accusing an archbishop who launched an unprecedented attack on Pope Francis of mounting a “political frame job devoid of real foundation”.

Cardinal Marc Ouellet said in the detailed, three-page letter that calls by Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano for the pope to resign because he had allegedly covered up sexual misconduct by a senior American churchman were “calumny and defamation”.

Video: The Death of American Democracy

The collapses of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre, on September 11, 2001, were the most frightening images that I have ever seen, up until May 24th, 2011, when Binyamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of the United States Congress and received 29 standing ovations, along with many other outbursts of sycophantic applause.
It was the final nail in a coffin, the construction of which began long ago, and in it all remaining vestiges of democracy were joyfully laid to rest—by those sworn to protect it—as it became clear that the United States was now controlled by Enemies Inside its Gates.
Note: Anthony Charles Ashton Lawson passed away on the 8th of January, 2015 in Phuket, Thailand, at the age of 79 due to colon cancer. He was a class act right to the end!

Adam Sandler sang Bar Mitzvah Torah blessing with Howard Stern

“Isn’t that the single most weird situation in your whole performance life?” Stern asked Sandler, who was his guest last Wednesday, about the tradition.

“Yes,” Sandler responded.

“People are evaluating you on how well you sing this secret language,” Stern continues, before Sandler interrupts: “That you don’t know what it means.”

Then they both launch into the traditional Torah blessing, on air, more or less in sync with each other.

Stern also explains that he was bar mitzvahed at a synagogue in Roosevelt, Long Island>>>

15 RICHEST PASTORS IN AMERICA: Is The Love of Money Destroying Christianity from Within?

In this video, I share some of my thoughts regarding how we ought to respond to the ultra wealthy mega church superstars. It's easy to call them wolves in sheeps clothing, and I think in large part, they are responsible for contributing to the downfall of Christianity, and the watering down of the Gospel.

Catholic archbishop asks forgiveness from Mi'kmaq for Shubenacadie Indian Residential School

"On this day, we personally and in our roles as leaders of the Catholic Church in Nova Scotia, kneel before the representatives of the Mi'kmaq nation to express our regret, sorrow and apology for the hurts, violence and abuse experienced in the residential school of Shubenacadie, for the participation of the Church in the promotion of misguided policies of assimilation and for our involvement in undermining aboriginal culture, language and spirituality," the bishops said.

The Rite's text went on to address the church's support of racist practices, and the involvement of church members in maintaining "inhuman and inadequate life conditions" for the Mi'kmaq and "indifference" to their plight.

They then requested the forgiveness needed "if reconciliation is to take place."

Sour Note? Saudi Woman Blocked by Court From Marrying Man Who Plays Music

A Saudi woman recently lost a legal battle to marry the man of her choice because he is “religiously incompatible” with her, as he plays a musical instrument, a Saudi newspaper reported Tuesday.

According to the Okaz newspaper, the suitor asked for the unidentified woman's hand in marriage two years ago. The woman is a 38-year-old bank manager from the region of Qassim, which is north of the kingdom's capital of Riyadh. However, the woman's family objected to the suitor, who is a teacher, claiming that the man was not religiously compatible with them because he played the "oud," a type of lute

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

I hope these two are able to elope and get married in a civilized Islamic country which understands the beauty, and value, and even the God-centric, God-praising nature of a lot of music which may be instrumental in nature.

BREAKING: Viganò releases new ‘testimony’ responding to Pope’s silence on McCarrick cover-up

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has today issued a new extraordinary testimony, responding to Pope Francis’ refusal to answer the charge that he knew of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s sexual abuse, yet made McCarrick “one of his principal agents in governing the Church.” In the four-page document (see below), the former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States also responds to the Pope’s recent homilies which seem to cast himself in the role of Christ and Viganò as the diabolical “Great Accuser.” “Has Christ perhaps become invisible to his vicar? Perhaps is he being tempted to try to act as a substitute of our only Master and Lord?” Archbishop Viganò asks in the new statement, sent to LifeSiteNews today.

'Nazi' Concentration Camps on Staten Island?

In 1981, Jack Glenn, director of the popular 1940's newsreel series "March of Time" died at age 76. His obituary ... let slip an amazing revelation: "As senior director for the popular movie house newsreel, he often created world events with actors and movie sets. One such news feature film, Inside Nazi Germany, made in 1938, included footage of a `concentration camp' that was filmed on Staten Island with scores of New York City actors..." Millions of Americans watching the "news"-reels in their local theatres were convinced that they were seeing "the real thing." How many such images of "reality" that we see on a regular basis are actually the creation of movie magicians?

'Operation Finale': Another Major Holocaust-Theme Movie

Another major Holocaust-theme movie released by MGM on Sept. 14. "Operation Finale" focuses on Adolf Eichmann, a high-ranking German SS official who played an important role in organizing large-scale deportations of Jews to camps during World War II. Portrayed by veteran actor Ben Kingsley, Eichmann is seen in flashbacks to World War II and years later in Argentina, where he lived in hiding until Israeli agents kidnapped him in 1960. The film depicts the covert operation by which he was tracked down and flown to Israel, where he was put on trial and then hanged.
Note: Wouldn't you like to see a film on the lies of the holocau$t! It would take multiple movies!

Pope says Catholic Church should not be judged by modern standards over sexual abuse scandal as he refuses to answer questions after 3,700 children were assaulted by German priests

The pope said the Catholic Church should not be judged by modern standards over sexual abuse scandals as he refused to answer awkward questions in a carefully choreographed press conference on board the papal plane yesterday.

Heading home from a four-day tour of the Baltics, the pope's spokesman said Francis would only take questions about the trip despite a bombshell report revealing that 3,700 children had been sexually assaulted by priests in Germany.

He did eventually get to the thorny topic and admitted that historic abuse by clerics in several countries was 'monstrous.'

But he insisted the Church should not be judged by modern standards because attitudes towards abuse, which he said happens not just in the Church but in society generally, have changed dramatically over the years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Technically, the Pope is correct. Attitudes about adult/child sex have changed throughout history. In ancient Greece it was considered quite acceptable.

But the priests committing these acts today do not live in ancient Greece!

Former Google bigwig launches AI “church” that positions technology as GOD

Former Google executive Anthony Levandowski has filed IRS paperwork to establish an official religion devoted to technology. Not only will this bizarre religion worship scientific progress, but it will also worship artificial intelligence and create a “godhead.”

According to his filing, this new non-profit religious organization, which will be known as “Way of the Future,” will “develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on artificial intelligence and through understanding and worship of the Godhead [to] contribute to the betterment of society.”

The despicable paedophile priest you’ve never heard of

Georgie Burg was a talented but vulnerable girl when the paedophile priest raped her on a church pew after violin practice.

Aitchison had sexually assaulted other children before he deliberately targeted Georgie, and his abuse would later make her abandon an international soloist career.

The trick he played to get her close enough to pounce on her was both calculated and cynical.

Aitchison told Georgie that he could make God materialise her beloved pet dog, which had been killed in an accident for which Georgie blamed herself.

‘Most famous Buddhist teacher after the Dalai Lama’ is accused of sexually abusing female followers and keeping a harem

A Buddhist teacher who is considered the most famous after the Dalai Lama has been accused of sexually abusing his female followers and keeping a harem.

Sogyal Rinpoche, 71, was for years adored and looked up to by many and his book The Tibetan Book Of Living And Dying sold more than three million copies.

But behind his fame and influence lay a dark secret.

The Tibetan is said to have surrounded himself with a ‘harem’ of beautiful young women upon whom he would inflict ‘sexual and emotional abuse’.

Putin is a Chabad Lubavitch puppet

While RT and a lot of alternative news outlets portray Putin as some sort of savior, the reality is that he is just playing his role in the Jewish Babylonian messianic soap new world order. Instead of expelling jewish influence in his country after the fairly recent satanic mass slaughter of up to 80 million of his Russian brothers and sisters by jews after the "Bolshevik" revolution, Putin is calling for harder punishments for anti semitic expressions in Russia. He proposed to members of the European Jewish Congress, that Jews facing a rising tide of anti-Semitism and bigotry farther west should move to Russia, where he said they would be better accepted. Readers of the Jerusalem Post have chosen Putin as their person of the year.

First ‘red heifer’ born in Israel for 2000 years triggers armageddon fears

The red heifer (also known as the red cow) was a cow brought to priests for sacrifice in the Hebrew Bible. Jewish and Christian fundamentalists believe that once a red heifer is born they will be able to rebuild the Third Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. But in order to do this, they would have to demolish what stands on the hill today — the Dome of the Rock, an Islamic holy temple.

Brooklyn Diocese in NYC agrees to pay $27.5MILLION damages to four men who were repeatedly raped by their Catholic teacher as young boys in the latest pedophile scandal to hit the church

Four men who were victim to horrific child sex abuse by their Catholic religion teacher were awarded a hefty $27.5million settlement by the Diocese of Brooklyn on Tuesday.

The diocese agreed to the pay each of the unnamed victims - who were lured into sleepovers and repeatedly raped by their religion teacher, Angelo Serrano, 67, when they were ages 8 through 12 between 2003 and 2009 - a sum of $6,875,000 each.

Serrano had been working as a religion teacher at St. Lucy’s-St. Patrick’s Church in Brooklyn at the time he abused his young male students.

The disturbing abuse took place inside the church - which has since been shut down - as well as a nearby school building and Serrano's apartment at the time, attorneys for the victims said.

How Christian Zionists got their man into the White House ...

***
On 18 July, US Vice President Mike Pence delivered the keynote speech at the annual summit of Christians United for Israel (CUFI). Founded in 2006 by Pastor John Hagee, an evangelist from San Antonio, CUFI claims to be the largest pro-Israel group in the United States, with three million members. Hagee endorsed Donald Trump for president in May 2016
***
Pence's speech marks a fundamental change in the language that the White House has historically employed to articulate the United States' relationship with Israel," Dan Hummel, a fellow at Harvard Kennedy School, wrote in the Washington Post.

That fundamental change is towards Christian Zionism, an ideology that bases its political support for Israel on the belief that the modern state of Israel is a manifestation of prophecies in the Bible - and that the very fate of the United States is prophetically linked with Israel.

Hummel describes Pence as an "ardent Christian Zionist" who expresses his support for Israel in explicitly prophetic terms>>>>
