More on the Anti-Muslim, Anti-Jewish, Anti-Christian 9/11 memorial hate-fest

One of the things that's being done in many places around the nation, even in churches and synagogues, is to have the children of the congregation, many as young as two, stand up and parrot the empty words of the Pledge of Allegiance and no, that isn't photoshopped, those are real American Kids chanting words they didn't understand to a graven image.   Right after the "attack" which is avowed as The Official Story Being True, (But the officials who tell the story also said that there were WMDs in Iraq and the Wars are about "freedom"... so, where do the lies end?) children in schools across the land supposedly came up with the idea, with no coaching from their parents or teachers, to have a synchronized chanting of the Pledge. As a show of "patriotism". Kids who don't know what death is, or any of the myriad twists and turns of the lies needed to start and sustain wars... told by their teachers to do this, and to lie to the world and say it was their own idea. And if they didn't, they were "terrorists". Now, who could find any fault with that? How about maybe GOD? The Bible strictly prohibits making children swear oaths. Read the Laws of Moses before you jump down my throat about saying it. Jewish kids say an oath, Bat Mitzvah for the girls and Bar Mitzvah for the boys, when they're 13 years of age. The oath first Moses then Joshua had the people of Israel say. You see the cute little house sign that says "As for me, and MY house, we will serve the LORD"... without the rest of the stuff surrounding it like Joshua having anybody who didn't swear the mitzvah killed. Seriously, if you read the Old Testament with open eyes, it ain't going to be the same as they taught you in Sunday School. Which is where Jews have an advantage, they don't hold back and they do tell it like it's written. Before they swear the Bar/Bat Mitzvah they have to study and be tested to see if they really know what they're getting into. You can't say later that you just didn't know. The oath is that you will from that day forth ("choose, now, who you will serve...") obey every Law. So you have to KNOW every law. There's a catch to it, a huge gaping hole in it. Nobody ever kept the whole law, and swearing to do so but not doing it is a death-penalty offense. Sanhedrin after Sanhedrin have debated that point. Mostly because a lot of people in the world want to KILL a lot of other people in the world. And to feel no guilt about it. So there's a lot of noise bandied about in every religion that somehow there's an amendment, an invisible escape clause, to the "Thou shalt not kill" command. "Eye for an eye" keeps coming up. Doesn't work. If "Eye for an eye" were applied, the only people

I dunno, maybe that was some kind of sign, you reckon?

It's difficult to inject logic into either politics or faith without being the subject of a lynching, but here goes. There was a statue, 62 feet tall, of Jesus on the side of a highway in Ohio. People would actually pull over and pray to it. So last year about this time it was struck by lightning, caught fire and burned down. Or burned up. Means the same thing. Now, there's long been a controversy in Christianity and Judaism and Islam over the making of graven images and with special notice given to a statue, picture or whatever of God. Much Christian blood has been spilt by other Christians with Iconoclasm being one of the issues. The Hundred Years War for instance. Somebody who was crawling up out of the Medieval Tradition and had learned to read, and noticed that there was a discrepancy of sorts between "Thou shalt not make any graven image" and the Church tradition of making lots and lots of graven images. So, that left no choice but to wage bloody, expensive and generally tragic War for a hundred years, hence the name. There were other issues, mostly having to do with which Christian king got to own which land and the people therein. So, now, there's almost completed, another Touchdown Jesus statue being made by the same corporation which makes the fiberglass Big Boy hamburger franchise statues. With the notation of "it's lightning-proof". Here's where logic should be employed... If as the Bible says, God controls the storm, Jesus specifically, then it's pretty likely that God has decisively said "NO!" to the statue of His Incarnation Jesus, and building another one right in the same spot and DARING God to strike that one with lightning might not be all that good an idea. In fact, it might be considered downright foolish. And expensive, the last one cost $600,000 and the notion of fiscal conservativism is a big issue with Christians nowadays. Not that the ones who sing the loudest praises of conservativism actually conserve anything but that's a longstanding pet peeve of mine and y'all probably already noticed that it's my pet peeve. I was thinking of getting a dog and naming it Peeve so I could go around saying "that's my pet, Peeve" but the humor would wear off after about, o, I dunno, the second time I told the joke. Dogs sometimes live to be twenty years old and I don't think the joke would last quite that long. But back to the theme, spending more than a half million to replace a statue that God already rejected, kind of violently and to the point, one could say "in a shocking display" is, I don't know, maybe "squandering" as opposed to "saving". Mind you, it's not my money. I do, however, wish and pray that people would stop doing things to make Christians look stupid. In a related theme, a preacher named Pat Robertson has often tried to make White Southern Christians look stupid by telling the entire world that White Southern Christians all agree

Things to De-Celebrate this National Hate Week

Which is a smack to the back of the head to all those who told us in 1984 that the Police State setup from the BOOK of the same name couldn't possibly happen in America because it was all about Socialist Dystopia and nobody, no not ever, could set up a CAPITALIST dictatorship. God, they're stupid.   But here's what the post 9/11 "patriotism" has gotten us. Eight years of a moron for president, an evil moron but a moron. His crew of more intelligent evil people used the occasion to make it unpatriotic to question their plans to deregulate American industries. We've seen a 9/11 worth of dead Americans every single month due to denial of Health Care. We've seen pollution that al Qa'eda could only hope to inflict on any one small town, done daily and across the nation. We've seen our national surplus turned upside down, and many multiples of the amount of that surplus in debt, due to the Wars started by the aforementioned Moron in response to 9/11. The badly misnamed USA PATRIOT Act is being invoked against Julian Assange and Wikileaks in response to their telling the TRUTH about 9/11 and the aforementioned wars, the moron who started them and the morons who still follow his leadership even though it's destroyed what used to be America. Those Morons have banded together into Right Wing Terrorist Groups such as the TeaParty, Minutemen and other "patriotic" front-ends for the Ku Klux Klan. They'll be flying plenty of the Hate Flag. By Tea-Klan MORONS such as this couple who made their Wedding into a Hate-fest. Yep, that's right, they're celebrating their wedding with symbols of Starting A Racist War which killed half a million Americans in order to keep according to the 1860 census 3,950,528 Americans in perpetual bondage based on the color of their skin. To deny AMERICANS the rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness spoken of, ever so nobly, in a revered document written by a Slaveowner. So much for the "original intent", Jefferson spoke of Liberty in one paper then wrote whole books demonizing Black Americans and condemning them to slavery. You find that a lot in the "original intent" doctrine espoused by those who want to return America to an official slave nation. Emboldened by the level of pure ignorant and racist Hatred engendered by 9/11. So, De-Celebrate it by burning the Racist Flag. And, not just those of us who are of Darker Skin, or mixed "race". Every WHITE person in the world has a stake in this as well, a huge stake because it will only be by the WHITES rejecting the label the Racist PurkMeisters like the Tea-Klan want to place on All White People. They would have me and thee and she and he and we and everybody in the whole world believe that all white people are as stupid, ignorant and hate filled as they are. So I'm calling on the so-called "white race" to step up and redeem and reclaim the dignity

The shocking part about the AI PACkers… Listen up, Lamborn fans…

It's not the blatant anti-Semitism involved in wanting to set Israel up as a target for near-total destruction, it's not their arrogance in making money supplying the means, the money, weapons, propaganda, anti-social gospel of indifference, answering the question of Cain "am I my brothers keeper" with a resounding NO, warmongering on every level... setting all the preconditions for an apocalyptic global destruction, the one they make money predicting... predicting the ride of the Horsemen and grooming their horses for them at the same time... No, the really shockingly delusional part about it is their overwhelmingly conceited belief that Everybody Else on the planet would be so stupid that we wouldn't notice that. We're supposed to not notice that they're warning of destruction, and sowing the economic seeds of that destruction daily, using the monetary policies that will ensure famines, ensure that natural disasters will have a far greater human scope than would be possible otherwise. Huge concentrations of people on the edge of recurrent natural disasters, kept there for the profit of a very few. Mass indoctrination of Hate, to keep the unnatural disasters of War going. All traced back to a very tiny minority whose faith is in no God or gods but only in money. They devour the houses of widows and orphans and for a pretense make long prayers. Their bogus "support" for a Jewish state is just one facet of the evil they do in every other facet of their public and private lives. They should feel shame but obviously do not. In Genesis, God declares blessings on ALL the descendants of Abraham, Isaac AND Ishmael, Jacob AND Esau, not to mention the descendants of Abraham's cousin Lot. That gets ignored in the AIPAC "christian" rhetoric, the only blessings recognized are a direct line of Abraham-Isaac-Jacob-Judah-David. The whole of the Bible, old and new testaments, even the Apocrypha, is dedicated to showing that there is none righteous, no not one. That we can not be redeemed from ourselves by our own actions nor those of our ancestors. We don't attain salvation or blessings from our heritage. The notion of an ironclad blessing of righteousness placed on one tribe of humanity is a coin with two sides, on the darkside of it, would Herod be sainted, perhaps? Ahab? Would the man David, who in one chapter is called "A man after God's own heart" be saved, and his descendants after, by his good works, or condemned by his evil works? It's more a case of God being extremely tolerant -to the point of absolute Liberalism - toward mankind as a whole. Judah sold his own brother into slavery and committed adultery with his daughter-in-law, marrying her after he got her pregnant, but is counted blessed. These are examples of grace, not earned. Yet the blessing of grace is taken to be a license for mass murder. The admonitions against such crimes is turned around to be somehow an invitation to commit more, and to feel good about doing it. Lamborn is one of many playing

News from Imperial Rome, Crusades 2.0, and Racist Hysteria

Italy is warning the rest of Europe about Tunisian refugees and others from the wave of rebellion against the Empire in their home Vassal States, coming to Europe and taking over. Like they haven't been doing exactly that same thing to North Africa since the Punic Wars. Guess it's different when the shoe and the foot are on the other shore. They DO have some legitimate cause for concern, the last time the Empire got this big and powerful, it was taken over and some say, taken down, by a wave of religious refugees from the Middle East. They've even got a church where one of the Imperial palaces, the Vatican, once stood.

Judge not lest ye also be judged…

Which is a distillation of the basic part of Jewish law. When one brings an accusation against another in before the priests (judges) both parties are supposed to be judged. Equally. Leviticus goes on and on about using the same measurements to sell as you use to buy. Standardized weights in every facet of life especially, in cases before the priests. Israel says Hamas has Anti-Aircraft missiles. Sure, if I had hostile people in multi-billion dollar attack aircraft flying low over my family and friends and occasionally SHOOTING at us I'd perhaps want some way to shoot back and maybe keep the Rich Murderers from killing me or my family or friends or for that matter ANYBODY. It's a huge leap of arrogance for Ehud Barak to go all crybaby and say Waaaahhh those people we've been steadily killing in their own country which doesn't waaaahh actually belong to waaaaah Israel and Israel has no legal authority to waaaaahhh use high-tech terrorism against their people, mostly civilians, have gotten a waaaahh waaahhhh wahhhh way to keep from doing it sometimes. No Fair!! Waaaahhhh Waaahhh we're the only ones allowed to kill waaahh waaaaaaaaaaahhhh!" By the same measure with which ye judge shall judgment be measured out to ye. People who want to argue the point can talk to Moses about it. Or God. You're not going to have it both ways, an unlimited Magic Ticket to killing anybody anywhere in the world as Mossad claims the right, and nobody else having the right to stop you from doing it. If you say God gave you that authority then you're simply LYING and using God's Name in vain. There's two of the Commandments right there. Since the commandments given to Moses extend far beyond the ones Charlton Heston dragged down the mountain, the "Ten", and the first part of it is that you're sworn to keep the whole law, and you have to have kept the whole law in order to judge any to death... (which is impossible by the way) you either have to actually live by the Law or quit saying that you do. It's not all that difficult to understand. 613 mitzvoh (plural of mitzvah, laws you're sworn to obey on Bar Mitzvah for young Jewish men and Bat Mitzvah for the ladies) isn't all that much. Lots of traps in there if you want to just arbitrarily declare yourself to be a judge but that's the way they're set up. There lies the arrogance of doing it. Aside from all else, eagerly seeking any excuse or "commandment" that allows you to KILL people marks you off as very strongly wanting to kill people and looking for a loophole to the "thou shalt not kill" from God's Top Ten Hits There are a lot of Christians and Jews and people who don't even give a fat flying ferret about what God had to say, but want to KILL.. and Kill PEOPLE, and "get away with it" as far as any laws in predominately Jewish or Christian

R W Lunartic fringe and the Lunar Year

One would think that people who claim to be very pro-Israel (long as them thar jewboys don't get too uppity) would at least know when the High Holy Days are. Glenn Beck, for instance, Breitbart, Fox News, all of them claiming a victory for Right Wing Lunatic Fringe politics and policies because the Israeli delegation wasn't at the U.N. on one of the days, Sukkot. These are the leaders of the same fringe groups who tried to make meat of the end of Ramadan being the day before September 11th this year, difference, their Adult Handlers noticed it so there weren't any Hysterical Shrieks about "Muslim Triumphalists dancing in streets on 9/11!!!" And MOST of them have dropped their ridiculous pointed slur that Barack must be an exclusively Muslim messianic name... in the face of some people replying to the their Jackass Statements with the notation that one of THE Judges, from the Book by the same name in the Old Testament, was named Barak (although today he would be described as an Unlawful Combatant and Terrorist) and the Israeli Defense minister is named Ehud Barak. One of their "oopsie" moments, one of several (hundred) (thousand) (hundreds of thousands) similar Oopsies. I'm thinking, here, that it's a massive failure of Private Education and Hoam Skewl and no, their Pastors don't know a thing about their own religious beliefs either. Oh, and these are the same Dangerously Inbred Cretins who call us Ignorant Morons because we don't share their vision of English Americans as "The New Jerusalem", don't call for the destruction of Israel in order to usher in the End of Days or other Semitic Anti-Semitism crap-ola. "Stand with Israel" except they want the Jewish people to be (almost) completely wiped out.

Muslim Mommas never cry and other heinous lies

What got me started on this offering was a TV show on at midnight, only lasted (from my perspective, because the channel got changed quickly) for about two minutes. The show was about 9/11 survivors. One of them said “That’s the difference between America and everybody else... in America when there’s great tragedy and danger people band together and help each other out”. So that means the only people on the entire surface of the planet where people actually have Human Feelings is in America, and everybody else is incapable of actual humanity. Subhumans in other words. Nothing Racist about that? No Religious bigotry either, like when a Muslim preacher orating at a funeral says the deceased is in Paradise, that’s supposedly cold-hearted brainwashing and encouraging the other members of the congregation to do suicide bombings. When a sold-out Christian Priest, military OR civilian, says that a fallen American soldier is in Heaven, that’s of course not anything to do with glorifying the war that killed the soldier or saying that the cause was just, and righteous, and ordained by God, is it? Especially when so many of these Sold-out Priests actually DO come right out and say that their version of Jihad/Crusade really IS just, righteous, ordained by God... A “Holy” War in other words. The Anti-Islam Pro-Holy War Media break out a doll allegedly given to Palestinian kids with bombs, guns, swords and other knives, with a faction-specific headscarf identifying the doll as being Hamas. and of course, like the funerary eulogy, is “brainwashing the kids to become suicide bombers” while the U.S. version thereof, pictured here, is NOT brainwashing the kids to be Fighter Pilots, Bomber Pilots, Drone Manipulators, Marines, Soldiers and Seamen who use large numbers of heavily armed comrades and high tech weaponry to Kill People using guns, bombs, knives and torture techniques applied to handcuffed prisoners... because, of course, the High-Tech weaponry makes the notion of a Suicide Bomber unnecessary. If other people who don’t have access to a Drone that can be launched from a heavily guarded air force base and controlled by some Coward Punk Uniformed Child sitting at a desk at an air base in Nebraska, use the more “hands on” approach to delivering their ordinance, then THEY are the cowardly ones, right? Teaching uniformed children to use weapons and military techniques and tactics is of course a strictly un-American concept, because we would NEVER do that, including not teaching our kids to use the same skills they would need to manipulate Drone Robot Bombs into the living space of other Human Beings with the purpose of Killing The Other Human Beings, by remote control... No, that’s the province of Other People. When an American Child is killed violently, usually the violence either accidental or deliberate occurs in America. Since by most counts the U.S. majority is White and Christian, that means that the majority of both Victims and Victors would be Christian Whites. Unless you have the silly-ass notion that American Christian

. "You don't Own Israel" in Hebrew...So, I was looking for a way to say it in Hebrew without being disrespectful to the Jewish people, especially as those in Israel and in the U.S. who oppose the War, wars plural... are accused by Likud as being anti-Semitic, Bibi Netanyahu even goes so far as spinning it like an old-fashioned turn-of-the-century "Zionist Plot" or "Papish Plot" or "Red Scare" or "insert religious, Ethnic or Political minority here Plot" and, Anti-Semitic. A quick rehash of MY take on that, we were called Anti-American for any opposition to any government official or policy in all our history. Oppose McCarthy? "Anti-Americans!" Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, blah blah blah...Criticize John Wayne or whatever other Faux Hero du jour, or any of the Wars they demanded we support and you guessed it we were the A.A. slur, personified. So I sought out how to say, "Netanyahu, you do NOT own Israel". Israel, actually, means more than just the Jewish state of Israel, according to the most violent books of prophecy and history in the Bible, Israel would include the Palestinians. After the death of Solomon Israel and Judah were two separate kingdoms which routinely went to war against each other. The Old Testament is described by some as a continual Hebrew-on-Hebrew crime spree. Twice in the book of Judges there are descriptions of tribes of Israel being almost wiped out by... tribes of Israel. Ephraim (say "shibboleth") and Benjamin. Ezra and Nehemiah, two of the most hateful religious leaders, past or present, who haunted the land of Israel described more Hebrew-on-Hebrew violence than fighting the neighboring nations. So I looked, and got the translation above. That simply says "You don't own Israel" without Bibi's Hebrew Name. The translation site I used to score it only does one language to another, when I tried to get the translation of Netanyahu from English to Hebrew, it simply put Netanyahu, exactly like written here, in English characters. Hebrew to Hebrew in English phonetic spelling. So I said to myself, (as I often do) "Self, why not just look up the Hebrew spelling of it..." That's when I saw something that I missed all these years. "Netanyahu" is a Royal as in Messianic title. It's more than Bibi and Likud appointing him Judge over Israel. Without, of course, the consent of 70% of the Jewish Population of Israel, as determined in the last election, but certainly without any request for consent from the Other Israelites. Which poses a problem for me as a Christian, on one level, and would be a problem for those Israeli Citizens who oppose the occupation and oppression of the Palestinian Israelites. If I mistranslate that, and say it just exactly wrong, "Netanyahu you don't own Israel" could come out as "God doesn't own Israel." I would prefer it to be "The State of Israel neither owns Israel the Race, Israel the NAME nor do they own God". Maybe a person who actually speaks Hebrew would be able to translate that concept in a more acceptable form.

In Israeli Apartheid, you and I are black

Sorta-leftist websites are touting use-to-be-leftist Uri Avnery's weekend article in Ma'an called "Tutu's Prayer." Where, the founder of Israel's Gush Shalom (touted as "fairly far left" as opposed to grandfather- clause'd phony) argues against the BDS boycott of Israel and against comparisons to South African apartheid. And where, Avnery shows himself blind to his own Judeo-centrism. Rejecting the term apartheid, Avnery writes: "It seems that the blacks in South Africa are very different from the Israelis--" Whaaaaat? Israelis see themselves as not the colonists but the natives! Who is it in Israel that has to wear the sunscreen? Avnery relates his conversation with Archbishop Desmond Tutu as reinforcing why a boycott will not work. Oh, Tutu testifies that the boycott worked against the South African regime. But Avnery points out the uniqueness of the Jews, who suffered the Holocaust. All Jews, he explains, believe the whole world is against them. An international boycott will only reinforce that belief. His conclusion: Israel will resist a boycott forever. Ergo, it won't work. Israelis as forever the victims; doesn't that point to why Israelis cannot begin to see why their actions against their neighbors are likened to war crimes? They see themselves as the black of South Africa. They probably see themselves as the Palestinians in the struggle over Gaza. You don't have to explain to the rest of the world, who is oppressing whom in the Middle East. And that's who has the fuller view of Israeli Apartheid. Apartheid in Israel is much simpler than between Israeli Jews and the dispossessed Palestinians. Under Israeli Apartheid, every Jew in the world has the preferential right to the land of the Palestinians. You, if you are a Jew, have a birthright to Israel, to the roads and lands designated for Jews only. You, if you are not a Jew, do not. That is Israeli Apartheid. To Israel, everyone else, you , me, and the Palestinians are the black.

Barack Obama: Next Year in Jerusalem

President Obama and family marked the start of the Jewish Passover by hosting a traditional Seder ceremony at the White House, apparently in fulfillment of a campaign promise. Last year Obama participated in a similar dinner with Jewish campaign workers, and when reciting the Haggadah which ends with the wish "Next Year in Jerusalem," Obama tacked on "Next Year in the White House." If we assume he didn't need to add that wish this time, did the White House prayer end: Next Year in Jerusalem? I find the official photograph released by the White House disturbing all in itself. The higher resolution image reveals that the Obamas and friends are reading from Haggadah pamphlets published by Maxwell House Coffee, a free hand-out at supermarkets. Wouldn’t you imagine the White House has its own printing wing for such occasions? Aren’t most presidential guests expecting to come away with something more than a promotional brochure for a White House dinner keepsake? And there's something a-kilter with the dining furniture. The observation has been confirmed in the blogosphere that everyone's sitting on plastic catering chairs. The chairs are uncomfortable obviously, because everyone's using cushions behind their backs. These plastic chairs are presumably what you'd use when you have to set extra places. In this case, an entire extra table. Nothing odd about an extra table, but not where you'd expect to have to bump the First Family. Which family is seated at the main table? Was it deemed imprudent to depict the first Presidential Seder at the formal table, with all the dignified trappings of a White House occasion? Assuming there’s an art director behind every detail, including the mixed-bag assortment of pillows used to cushion the chairs, the Obamas appear to be cast into a less-than-affluent kitchen table scene, perhaps out of sensitivity for our nation’s recent hard times. It’s a look that might mimic a Depression Era dinnertime, but I cannot conjure when austerity ever reflected a modern White House. Was even down-home Jimmy Carter ever directed to pretend he was more Good Times and less like the Huxtables?

The Godless God fearing Americans

What is all this Goddamn pomp? "Non-believers" got a mention in Barack Obama's inaugural address, dead last after Christians, Muslims, Jews and Hindus, even though they rank second, and even though church abstainers actually comprise the majority of Americans. Yet even this second day, mentions of God, Lord, and prayer, continue ad nauseum. Talk about disrespect. And why are atheists and agnostics named in the negative? Why aren't they called rationalists? Churchgoers should be called reason disabled. What a farce. Are Americans to believe that Obama and his wife, Harvard grads, are religious? And which of the shysters of DC can be considered spiritual? I'm watching the service at the National Cathedral, which, taking into account the time zones, is eating well into Obama's first day in office. Assembled are a bunch of pharisees, a disproportionate sampling for certain, to voice their prayers for our lawmakers. Where were they when Bush and cronies were in attendance? NOTE: Was Obama's multi denominational ceremony representative of American believers? Let's have a look at the distribution of the 20 religious leaders attending the National Prayer Service, as they relate to their corresponding population segments, in descending order of size: 5 PROTESTANT EVANGELICALS, representing 27% of the US population: Rev. Sharon Watkins, president, Disciples of Christ in North America Rev. Andy Stanley, North Point Community Church Rev. Suzan Johnson-Cook, Believers Christian Fellowship Church Rev. Cynthia Hale, Ray of Hope Christian Church Rev. Jim Wallis, Sojourners 7 MAINLINE PROTESTANTS, 21% Katharine Jefferts-Schori, presiding bishop, Episcopal Church Rev. John Bryson Chane, Washington Episcopal Bishop Rev. Samuel Lloyd, dean of the cathedral, Episcopal Church Canon Carol Wade, cathedral's precentor (Note: Episcopalians represent !.3%, but are third richest group) Rev. Otis Moss Jr., father of pastor, Trinity United Church of Christ Kirbyjon Caldwell, Windsor Village United Methodist Church Rev. Wesley Granberg-Michaelson, Reformed Church in America 2 CATHOLICS, 22% Donald Wuerl, Washington Catholic Archbishop Rev. Francisco Gonzalez, auxiliary bishop, Washington archdiocese 1 MUSLIM, at 3% Ingrid Mattson, president, Islamic Society of North America 1 each, HINDU and ORTHODOX, in sum 1.7% Uma Mysorekar, president, Hindu Temple Society of North America Archbishop Demetrios, primate, Greek Orthodox Church in America 3 JEWS, at 1.5% (but richest) Rabbi Jerome Epstein, United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism Rabbi Haskal Lookstein, Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun Rabbi David Saperstein, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (Is that AIPAC's influence extending to America's Christians?) How about that corpulent Saddleback creep Rick Warren, reciting a completely forgettable invocation at yesterday's inauguration? Unheard by the masses was Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson's earlier invocation, which was fathoms deeper than any of these high priests. HBO didn't air it in their coverage of the Sunday inaugural buildup, but it's available on Youtube. Here's the transcript: A Prayer for the Nation and Our Next President, Barack Obama (Opening Inaugural Event, Lincoln Memorial, Washington, DC, January 18, 2009) By The Rt. Rev. V. Gene Robinson, Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire Welcome to Washington! The fun is about to begin, but first, please join me in pausing for a moment, to ask God’s blessing upon our nation and our next president. O God of our many understandings, we pray that you will… Bless us with tears – for a world in

Jews for Allah might be for you!

Tired of intolerant religion of the Dobson/ Haggard type? There are some alternatives out there. You might consider the Unitarians, Friends, Mennonites, or even Jews for Allah! Hey don't laugh. I have a good friend that took a wrong turn in life and became a Jew for Jesus for a while. If so many Jews can join the Christian religion that persecuted the Jewish people for centuries, certainly some might find a yet more hospitable environment within Islam. Funny though, that there is no Muslims for Moses organization that I know of. If there were, then all the Palestinian refugees could convert to Judaism and reenter their Homeland, Pales... uh that would then be Israel.. Seems like converting others to their faith is not the strongpoint of the Jewish religion. It's an intolerant religion it might seem. And now that I think of it, nobody has everr accused Moses of being like Jesus, say... Can you imagine Moses turning the other cheek? I can't. Oh well, what do I know or understand of theology, me being a nonbeliever and all? But you of the Jewish faith, you might want to check out Jews for Allah Seriously. Don't tell us it's not your tribe. Go check them out.
