Not all bad
I just thought i would post these images to show that obviously not all of the soldiers in Iraq are "evil" people. This Iraqi boy clearly felt that this soldier would protect him.
I do not support the war in Iraq and consider it an immoral and illegal occupation and have posted many stories to illustrate why i believe this.
But at the same time i do not want to give the impression that I believe that every soldier in Iraq is a crazed zionist neocon bent on the complete destruction of arabs.

It is truly a sad state of affairs.

On Behalf of the People of the United States of America, the undersigned Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and affiliates hereby petition for, and demand, a truly independent investigation with subpoena power in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of 9/11/01 - specifically the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers and Building 7. We believe that there is sufficient doubt about the official story and therefore that the 9/11 investigation must be re-opened and must include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives that may have been the actual cause behind the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers and WTC Building 7.

With our deepest appreciation, Richard Gage, Architect
“The prophet Daniel once saw an angel, and he was so terror-struck at his appearance, that he fell to the ground like one dead. If such an effect was produced on him by the sight of a single angel, whose errand was one of comfort and consolation, what will become of us, when so many hundreds of thousands of heavenly princes draw night to us [on Judgment Day] with wrathful countenances?

St. Ephrem, speaking of this says: ‘The angels will stand there with a menacing demeanor, their eyes flashing with the sacred fire of just indignation, roused by the iniquities of mankind.’” (Fr. Martin von Cochem, The Four Last Things, p. 66.)

So much for all the goofs who think that they are seeing angels everywhere.
Raising questions about 9/11 gets an Army sergeant demoted for “disloyalty.”

He couldn’t have foreseen that one e-mail could derail his career and put him on his way out of the Army. One e-mail, speculating about events that millions of people have questioned for the last six years, was all it took.

“Who really benefited from what happened that day?” he asked rhetorically. Not “Arabs,” but “the Military Industrial Complex,” Buswell concluded. “We must demand a new, independent investigation.”

For voicing those opinions in an e-mail to 38 people on the San Antonio Army base, Buswell was stripped of his security clearance, fired from his job, demoted, and ordered to undergo a mental health exam.

As if all that weren’t enough, Fort Sam Houston’s chief of staff penned a letter accusing Buswell of “making statements disloyal to the United States.”
The mainstream media is starting to run stories that demonstrate that members of our government were complicit in the 9/11 attacks!

Giuliani Confronted At New York Fundraiser

http://www.wnbc.com/politics/13404578/detail.html?dl=mainclick

NEW YORK -- A radical group at a Bronx fundraiser confronted Rudolph Giuliani on Tuesday morning, accusing him of being one of the "criminals of 9/11."

The Republican candidate for president was outside City Island's Sea Shore restaurant in the Bronx, speaking with WNBC.com's Adam Shapiro about his fundraising in New York.

Afterward, a young woman claiming to be the relative of a Sept. 11, 2001, firefighter who died when the towers collapsed, asked Giuliani why he allegedly told Peter Jennings the towers would fall that day, but did not stop the rescue efforts of firefighters and police officers.

The woman claims Giuliani knew the towers would fall, and allowed rescuers to go to their deaths. She asked him, "How do you sleep at night?"

Video: Watch the woman confront Giuliani

Giuliani was extremely polite, telling the young woman she was wrong and that he never said what she claimed. At that point, another protester from her group, a young man, interrupted Giuliani with the same allegations.

Giuliani replied by saying, "I didn't realize the towers would collapse." He later added, "No one that I know of had any idea they would implode. That was a complete surprise."

WNBC has obtained the transcript of Giuliani's appearance with Jennings, from the Giuliani 2008 campaign. This is the verbatim of the issue in question:

"I--I went down to the scene and we set up headquarters at 75 Barkley Street, which was right there with the police commissioner, the fire commissioner, the head of emergency management, and we were operating out of there when we were told that the World Trade Center was going to collapse. And it did collapse before we could actually get out of the building, so we were trapped in the building for 10, 15 minutes, and finally found an exit and got out, walked north, and took a lot of people with us."



So many people are waking up that, as much as they would like to, even the mainstream media cannot ignore it anymore!

Click on the video link and listen to this satanists answer to this young woman's question. Giuliani says that he thought that the WTC buildings would collapse like other buildings have in the past - over several hours...the only problem with this lie - is that no steel strutured building has ever collapsed due to fire - EVER!

It is clear that Giuliani got a prior warning that these buildings were going to "implode" (a controlled demolition term) as he put it.

He was warned that the Towers would collapse while those inside the towers were being told to stay where there were and while firefighters were rushing into these buildings!

VP's lesbian caption ignites 'sinful' fury
White House calls Mary Cheney, Heather Poe 'parents' of new baby
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted: May 31, 2007
1:00 a.m. Eastern

© 2007 WorldNetDaily.com

This is the official photograph released when Vice President Dick Cheney's grandson was born, with an original caption listing his daughter, Mary, and Heather Poe, as 'parents.'

It was just a few words in the fine print under a news release photograph of Vice President Dick Cheney, his wife Lynne and their newborn grandson, Samuel David Cheney, but it has Christian organizations praying for the sins of the administration.

The caption included the words: "...His parents are the Cheneys' daughter Mary, and her partner, Heather Poe. White House photo by David Bohrer."

"I say shame on the White House, shame on the president and shame on the vice president for allowing such a caption to be 'officially' added onto the White House website and such a beautiful photo of two happy grandparents and their new grandchild," said Stephen Bennett, founder of Stephen Bennett Ministries, which advocates for those who choose to leave the homosexual lifestyle.

He also works with The Parents Group, a subscription service that offers counsel to parents and other family of those who have chosen the homosexual lifestyle.

"I guess we can tragically and officially say both the White House and the Bush Administration have officially recognized the sinful sexual unions of homosexuals, as well as recognized and embraced the tragedy of the social experiment of homosexual parenting," he said.

The actual caption of the photo read: "Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne Cheney, welcomed their sixth grandchild, Samuel David Cheney, Wednesday, May 23, 2007. He weighed 8 lbs., 6 oz and was born at 9:46 a.m. at Sibley Hospital in Washington, D.C. His parents are the Cheneys' daughter Mary, and her partner, Heather Poe. White House photo by David Bohrer."

But Bennett wondered, "Since when have two homosexual women been able to naturally procreate?"

"Fact is Mary Cheney, the vice president's daughter – in one way or another – received a male's sperm. She is the biological mother, parent number one, and some man, somewhere out there, is Samuel David's real biological father, parent number two," he said.

"Unlike the official White House photo caption, a man and a woman, a Daddy and a Mommy, are Samuel David Cheney's REAL biological parents," he said. "Then who is Heather Poe?"

Simply "Mary Cheney's live-in lesbian lover," he said.

"Everyone knows there can only be one REAL biological Mommy. We are all grown adults. Playing 'house' is a game for children, not for The White House or the vice president and his wife," he said.

Bennett, who lived in the homosexual lifestyle for 11 years – with more than 100 partners – until he left in 1992, said what is even worse is the double standard for the Bush administration.

"President George W. Bush held several presses conferences calling for a Federal Marriage Amendment to protect the God-ordained institution of marriage between one man and one woman, while homosexuals pushed for the union of two men or two women to be equally recognized as real 'marriage,'" Bennett said.

"However, … Cheney clearly rebels against his superior, makes a public mockery of the president and the current administration he is supposed to represent, and clearly holds to a different set of moral standards and beliefs," Bennett said. "When President Bush stood on the victory stage several years ago after being elected into office by values voters, Mary Cheney was on stage as well with her lesbian lover, Heather Poe. It was a slap in the face to the values voters who had just elected the duo into office. That wound has never healed."

Bennett, now married for 14 years with two children, advocates for the traditional family and the protection of children from the homosexual lifestyle.

In a separate e-mail to his ministry supporters, he said the issue had to be addressed.

"Please know, as commanded by scripture, we pray for our president and leaders over us and are called to submit ourselves to authority. However, if this authority is promoting SIN – are we to obey God – or man?" he asked. "We love, honor and respect our president and vice president. However, now is the time to join in fervent prayer … as pressure from homosexual groups NO DOUBT [is] influencing even the smallest of things – as a photo op. and caption placed on the photo."

"Every child deserves a Daddy and Mommy. We understand, sometimes through death or divorce, that unit is broken – and parents do the best they could to raise and nurture their child or children. That's where we as the Body of Christ step in to help and be there for the family and child. We celebrate these individuals and families. Sometimes in a second heterosexual marriage, children are adopted. We praise these men and women who do all they could to raise these children. THESE ARE REAL PARENTS. This is NOT playing 'house,'" he said.


FOLKS THIS IS THE PRESIDENT THAT WVCY WAS SUBTLELY PUSHING THEIR LISTENERS TO VOTE FOR! EVEN THOUGH HE WAS CONSIDERED THE "LESSER OF TWO EVILS", EVIL IS EVIL! BUT NOT IN THE HERETIC WORLD!

Ultra Jewish Supremacist-Neocon Robert Zoellick, the former U.S. Trade Representative and Deputy Secretary of State has now been chosen to head the World Bank.
It makes perfect sense that this Israel-firster has been promoted to one of the highest posts in the Federal Government and now the World Bank. The interesting aspect is that the media consistently covers up for political figures who support policies harmful to America, but are always in favor of those polticians who always look out for Israel’s interests.
The Neocons have of course been the driving force behind the disastrous Iraq War and occupation. From the beginning the war was not about “weapons of mass destruction.” That was nothing more than a lying excuse. It was not about oil, for Saddam offered to sell us all the oil we needed and at discount prices. In fact, the war caused oil prices to skyrocket and therefore cost America and Europe trillions of additional dollars in energy costs! From the start the war was about one thing, the one thing that the chief Jewish architects of the war, Perle and Wolfowitz, themselves stated again and again, the need to secure Israel’s Eastern flank. The war was and is good for Israel, but very bad for America.
The Jewish Neocons also have been at the lead in destroying America’s economic base. Robert Zoellick, for instance, has been composing free trade agreements with numerous Third World nations. Most recently, he authored the CAFTA accord, which has yet to pass congress, which calls for free trade to all the nations of Central America, a move that will cost hundreds of thousands of American jobs and destroy tens of thousands of American businesses. The politicians wanted to get the elections over before they signed that piece of treason.
It is no accident that Robert Zoellick was in line with the loudest chicken-hawks in promoting the Iraq War, and at the same tme acted to increase our unemployment lines in America. Robert Zoellick has been instrumental in fostering outsourcing of American jobs to the Third World. He has been fostering more trade with Red China (and yes, it is still RED).
Bush has appointed a Deputy Secretary of State and now head of the World Bank who serves the Israeli State First.
Robert Zoellick’s appointment is symbolic of the Zionist hold over the govenment of the United States and the world.

Sarkozy's Jewish roots
France's new president, Nicolas Sarkozy, lost 57 members of his family to the Nazis and comes from a long line of Jewish and Zionist leaders and heroes, writes RAANAN ELIAZ.
In an interview Nicolas Sarkozy gave in 2004, he expressed an extraordinary understanding of the plight of the Jewish people for a home: “Should I remind you the visceral attachment of every Jew to Israel, as a second mother homeland? There is nothing outrageous about it. Every Jew carries within him a fear passed down through generations, and he knows that if one day he will not feel safe in his country, there will always be a place that would welcome him. And this is Israel.”
Sarkozy’s sympathy and understanding is most probably a product of his upbringing it is well known that Sarkozy’s mother was born to the Mallah family, one of the oldest Jewish families of Salonika, Greece.
Additionally, many may be surprised to learn that his yet-to-be-revealed family history involves a true and fascinating story of leadership, heroism and survival. It remains to be seen whether his personal history will affect his foreign policy and France’s role in the Middle East conflict.In the 15th century, the Mallah family (in Hebrew: messenger or angel) escaped the Spanish Inquisition to Provence, France and moved about one hundred years later to Salonika.
In Greece, several family members became prominent Zionist leaders, active in the local and national political, economic, social and cultural life. To this day many Mallahs are still active Zionists around the world.Sarkozy’s grandfather, Aron Mallah, nicknamed Benkio, was born in 1890.
Beniko’s uncle Moshe was a well-known Rabbi and a devoted Zionist who, in 1898 published and edited “El Avenir”, the leading paper of the Zionist national movement in Greece at the time.
His cousin, Asher, was a Senator in the Greek Senate and in 1912 he helped guarantee the establishment of the Technion – the elite technological university in Haifa, Israel. In 1919 he was elected as the first President of the Zionist Federation of Greece and he headed the Zionist Council for several years. In the 1930’s he helped Jews flee to Israel, to which he himself immigrated in 1934. Another of Beniko’s cousins, Peppo Mallah, was a philanthropist for Jewish causes who served in the Greek Parliament, and in 1920 he was offered, but declined, the position of Greece’s Minister of Finance.
After the establishment of the State of Israel he became the country’s first diplomatic envoy to Greece.In 1917 a great fire destroyed parts of Salonika and damaged the family estate. Many Jewish-owned properties, including the Mallah’s, were expropriated by the Greek government.
Jewish population emigrated from Greece and much of the Mallah family left Salonika to France, America and Israel. Sarkozy’s grandfather, Beniko, immigrated to France with his mother.
When in France Beniko converted to Catholicism and changed his name to Benedict in order to marry a French Christian girl named Adèle Bouvier.Adèle and Benedict had two daughters, Susanne and Andrée. Although Benedict integrated fully into French society, he remained close to his Jewish family, origin and culture....

Somehow i get the feeling that we will not hear neo-cons making stupid comments about "freedom fries" - i get the feeling that France will suddenly be our best friend and all the morons with their comments about France and the French will forget all about it.

Excellent comments that expose problems with Calvinistic "Evangelical Christianity"

actually - virtually all forms of protestantism deny free will

The following comments are taken from an article that appeared in The Seraph Click here for a free sample copy of THE SERAPH March 2007: The article is an excerpt from Growth in Holiness or the Progress of the Spritual Life by Frederick William Faber D.D.

"....They not infrequently run into something like Manichaeism, and at least give us an idea of Almighty God which has drifted widely from that which Scripture teaches. We forget that the devil is only one of three enemies against whom at baptism we vowed to do battle, and thus we transfer to him (satan) all the phenomena which belong rather to the flesh and the world.

The same secret vanity which leads us to a superstitious view of grace, as a talisman which is to act without the co-operation of our own resolute will, is the source of these erroneous views of the devil's agency. It breaks the shame of our falls to believe that in every instance we have wrestled and been thrown by an evil angel of tremendous power, and not that through cowardice, effeminacy, and self love we have simply given in to the suggestions of our own irresolute will.

Nay, in certain temptations men will allow themselves to be almost passive, from this horrible doctrine about the devil. Were they logical, they would soon come to believe the blasphemy of the necessity of sin.

What their view really amounts to is this, that man is a certain organized reasonable instrument, who is possessed by the devil, and that God comes and tries to establish a counter-possession by means of faith, grace and sacraments, and that man has little to do with the matter except to consent to be the battlefield of these two spiritual powers.

Everyone shudders when it is put into these words. But follow a soul who has got this wrong idea, into the whole region of temptation and scruples, and you will see that mistakes it makes and what misfortunes it encounters, and how at last, to use St. Bernard's figure, it needs not devil to tempt it, because it is a devil itself."

What a world we live in...



Crews Watch Home Burn, Family Forced To Pay

POSTED: 10:57 am PDT May 27, 2007

http://www.kpho.com/news/13397618/detail.html#

MESA, Ariz. -- A Gilbert family whose home burned to the ground while town firefighters refused to douse the flames will get a bill from the private fire company that eventually responded.

The double-wide mobile home in an unincorporated county area on South Higley Road was destroyed Wednesday night.

Gilbert firefighters responded to the blaze and made sure no life was at risk, but did not fight the fire under a town policy because it is in an unincorporated area.

Instead, the Rural/Metro Fire Department went to the fire as a courtesy, but they came too late to save the home.

Rural/Metro officials said they'll bill the family about $10,000 dollars anyway.

The county island fire protection issue has simmered for more than a year.

Rural/Metro ended subscription service, and county island residents voted against joining Gilbert to get protection. So for now, Gilbert officials say they will not get fire protection.
Oh the poor "scientists", they don't like it when others use their tactics.



Ky. Creation Museum opens to thousands


Tue May 29, 9:54 AM ET


http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070529/ap_on_re_us/creation_museum_opening



PETERSBURG, Ky. - A museum that tells the Bible's version of Earth's history — that the planet was created in a single week just a few thousand years ago — attracted thousands to its opening as protesters rallied outside.


The dozens of demonstrators argued Monday that the Creation Museum's central tenets conflict with scientific evidence that the Earth is several billion years old. Overhead, an airplane pulled a banner with the message: "Thou Shalt Not Lie."


The privately funded museum had more than 4,000 guests on opening day, said Mark Looy, a co-founder of the $27 million facility 20 miles southwest of Cincinnati. The parking lot was filled with license plates from dozens of states.


"The guests were very happy with the museum experience," Looy said. "Of course, we had some naysayers come through and engage us in conversation, and that's fine — we want them."
Lawrence Krauss, an author and physicist at Cleveland's Case Western Reserve University, decided to view the museum firsthand.


"It's really impressive — and it really gives the impression that they're talking about science at some point," Krauss said. On a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being best, "I'd give it a 4 for technology, 5 for propaganda. As for content, I'd give it a negative 5."


The museum features high-tech exhibits designed by a theme-park artist, including animatronic dinosaurs and a wooden ark at least two stories tall, plus a special effects theater and planetarium.


Some exhibits show dinosaurs aboard Noah's Ark and assert that all animals were vegetarians until Adam committed the first sin in the Garden of Eden.



The public schools, television, movie studios, internet, news media outlets, museums, zoos, etc... have been shoving the lie of evolution down our throats for decades - and now someone dares to expose the lie of evolution using the same means that they have been teaching this lie - and oh boy - look out - the "scientists" are on a rampage!

Dutch show has kidney donation contest

By TOBY STERLING, Associated Press Writer 2 hours, 17 minutes ago

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - A Dutch reality show that claims to be trying to draw attention to a shortage of organ donors said Tuesday it would go ahead with a program in which a terminally ill woman will choose a contestant to receive one of her kidneys.

The program, "Big Donor Show," has been attacked as unethical and tasteless. One member of the Dutch parliament suggested the government should block Friday's broadcast.

"We know that this program is super controversial and some people will think it's tasteless, but we think the reality is even more shocking and tasteless: waiting for an organ is just like playing the lottery," Laurens Drillich, chairman of the BNN network, said in a statement...

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070529/ap_on_en_tv/netherlands_organ_show


The faithless worldings that live only for the here and now do not even realize that they sacrifice eternity for a few more miserable years in this life.

Is it really worth the cannibalization and/or brutal murder of another human being so that you can get a few more years of life?

We are all going to die - no matter how many organs we get transplanted into us - we will still die - and then face our Judge.

"He who loves his life shall loose it."

How easy they can frame you


Computer Zombies in the News

In England, news reports detail the arrest of Julian Green in 2002 after police found 172 images of child pornography on his computer. He fought an uphill battle to prove his innocence — spending 9 days in prison and losing custody of his daughter and his home. The charges were finally dropped after investigators found evidence of 11 Trojan horse programs and one computer virus on his hard drive.

This has become a very popular trick amongst hackers with political agendas.
Judicial Watch Uncovers Three Deaths Relating to HPV Vaccine

Event Reports Obtained from FDA Detail 1,637 Adverse Reactions to Gardasil




(Washington, DC) -- Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released documents obtained from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act, detailing 1,637 reports of adverse reactions to the vaccination for human papillomavirus (HPV), Gardasil. Three deaths were related to the vaccine. One physician’s assistant reported that a female patient “died of a blood clot three hours after getting the Gardasil vaccine.” Two other reports, on girls 12 and 19, reported deaths relating to heart problems and/or blood clotting.

As of May 11, 2007, the 1,637 adverse vaccination reactions reported to the FDA via the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) included 371 serious reactions. Of the 42 women who received the vaccine while pregnant, 18 experienced side effects ranging from spontaneous abortion to fetal abnormities.

Side effects published by Merck & Co. warn the public about potential pain, fever, nausea, dizziness and itching after receiving the vaccine. Indeed, 77% of the adverse reactions reported are typical side effects to vaccinations. But other more serious side effects reported include paralysis, Bells Palsy, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, and seizures.

“The FDA adverse event reports on the HPV vaccine read like a catalog of horrors,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Any state or local government now beset by Merck’s lobbying campaigns to mandate this HPV vaccine for young girls ought to take a look at these adverse health reports. It looks as if an unproven vaccine with dangerous side effects is being pushed as a miracle drug.”

Judicial Watch filed its request on May 9, 2007, and received the adverse event reports from the FDA on May 15, 2007. Judicial Watch has posted the adverse event reports below.

(A recent study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, also questioned the general effectiveness of Gardasil.)

This Memorial Day we should remember all the victims of Zionist wars.
Until we realize that our true enemy is Israel and Zionism - our young men and women will be duped into fighting immoral and illegal wars of agression, losing their lives and their souls for their crimes.

A blessed Pentecost to all

Today was given yet another inspiring sermon by His Excellency Bishop Louis. So much light is given when we quietly reflect upon his inspired words...

Prayer Requests

Dear faithful Catholics,

Please remember in your prayers two suffering souls in particular.
One is a neighbor of the Friars in Waterloo, Amy Dunham, who is still suffering grievously with cancer, and is due to undergo more terrible chemotherapy. Bishop Louis beseeches Almighty God daily when he holds up the Consecrated Host for two things: To cast out all of the devils from the Satanically-influenced Waterloo area; and for the miraculous healing of Amy, who gains more from our simple pleadings than anything that doctors can do for her.

The second soul to remember is that of Louis Kinsella, who for 12 years has suffered terribly from liver disease. Both Louis and his father are tremendously brilliant individuals, and have been of remarkable service in preserving Bishop Vezelis' health. Please pray with confidence that God will vouchsafe to heal this poor man, who will be of ever greater service to the Order when he is restored to full health.

Yours in Christ,
Brother Bonaventure, OFM

Veni, Sancte Spiritus, known as the Golden Sequence, is the sequence for the Mass for Pentecost. It is commonly regarded as one of the greatest masterpieces of sacred Latin poetry ever written. Its beauty and depth have been praised by many. The hymn has been attributed to three different authors, King Robert II the Pious of France (970-1031), Pope Innocent III (1161-1216), and Stephen Langton (d 1228), Archbishop of Canterbury, of which the last is most likely the author.

.

COME, Holy Ghost,send down those beams,

which sweetly flow in silent streams

from Thy bright throne above.


O come, Thou Father of the poor;

O come, Thou source of all our store

Come, fill our hearts with love.


O Thou, of comforters the best,

O Thou, the soul's delightful guest,

the pilgrim's sweet relief.


Rest art Thou in our toil most sweet

refreshment in the noonday heat;

and solace in our grief.


O blessed Light of life Thou art;

fill with Thy light the inmost heart

of those who hope in Thee.


Without Thy Godhead nothing can,

have any price or worth in man,

nothing can harmless be.



Lord, wash our sinful stains away,

refresh from heaven our barren clay,

our wounds and bruises heal.



To Thy sweet yoke our stiff necks bow,

warm with Thy fire our hearts of snow,

our wandering feet recall.


Grant to Thy faithful, dearest Lord,

whose only hope is Thy sure word,

the sevenfold gifts of grace.



Grant us in life Thy grace that we,

in peace may die and ever be,

in joy before Thy face.


Amen. Alleluia.

Bush declares Jewish Heritage Month

http://www.jta.org/cgi-bin/iowa/breaking/101545.html

President Bush proclaimed May to be Jewish American Heritage Month.

"The faith and hard work of Jewish Americans have played an integral role in shaping the cultural fabric of America," Bush said in the proclamation issued Monday evening. "Throughout our history, Jewish Americans have contributed to the strength of our country and the preservation of our values. The talent and imagination of these citizens have helped our Nation prosper, and their efforts continue to remind us of America's gift of religious freedom and the blessings of God's steadfast love. Jewish Americans have worked to promote civil rights and build bridges of mutual understanding among the world's religions. Their deep commitment to faith and strong ties to family enrich our country and set a positive example for others."

Jeremy Katz, Bush's liaison to the Jewish community, read the proclamation at a Capitol Hill event sponsored by the United Jewish Communities, among other groups. Also speaking at the event was U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), who initiated the legislation creating the heritage month.

The Democratic National Committee also issued a statement marking the month. "For more than 350 years Jewish Americans have been an integral part of helping the United States grow and flourish," said the statement by DNC chairman Howard Dean and vice-chairwoman Susan Turnbull, who is Jewish.

Do you think that this satanist skull & bone president will declare a Christian Heritage Month?

For an historical contempory account of Jews in America - i suggest you read what General/President Grant had to say about Jews and the Civil War. I doubt that Grant would have granted these Christ denying satanists a month of honor.

SUNDAY SERMON - PENTECOST OR WHITSUNDAY:


EPISTLE: (ACTS 2:1-11)

1 And when the days of the Pentecost were accomplished, they were all together in one place: 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a mighty wind coming, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared to them parted tongues as it were of fire, and it sat upon every one of them: 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they began to speak with divers tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak. 5 Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem, Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
6 And when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded in mind, because that every man heard them speak in his own tongue. 7 And they were all amazed, and wondered, saying: Behold, are not all these, that speak, Galileans? 8 And how have we heard, every man our own tongue wherein we were born? 9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, Egypt, and the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome,
11 Jews also, and proselytes, Cretes, and Arabians: we have heard them speak in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.


GOSPEL: (JOHN 14:23-31)

Jesus answered, and said to him: If any one love me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and will make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not, keepeth not my words. And the word which you have heard, is not mine; but the Father's who sent me. 25 These things have I spoken to you, abiding with you.
26 But the Paraclete, the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring all things to your mind, whatsoever I shall have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, do I give unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. 28 You have heard that I said to you: I go away, and I come unto you. If you loved me, you would indeed be glad, because I go to the Father: for the Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it comes to pass: that when it shall come to pass, you may believe. 30 I will not now speak many things with you. For the prince of this world cometh, and in me he hath not any thing.
31 But that the world may know, that I love the Father: and as the Father hath given me commandment, so do I:


SERMON:

If any one love Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.
To truly love God we must keep His word, that is we must believe what He teaches and commands. "Without faith it is impossible to please God." (Heb. 11: 6) If without faith it is impossible to please God, it is evident that without faith we cannot love Him. God is pleased only with those who love Him. Christ Himself says: "He that believeth not, shall be condemned." (Mark 16:16) As no one who truly loves God will be condemned, it is evident that where there is no faith there is no love. Faith is the root and beginning of all Christian justice; without faith no one is purified from his sins and sanctified. We therefore in vain seek justice with unbelievers, since without the love of God there is no justice.
From this it follows that all those unbelievers and heretics who, through their own fault, have not the Catholic faith, do not and cannot possess the love of God. From this we perceive what we are to think of those who say that "it matters not what a man's faith is; all religions are alike; they are only different roads that lead to the same place; let a man only act rightly, and he can throw all creeds overboard; whether Jew, Pagan, Protestant or Catholic, it makes no difference." Such indifference is in direct opposition to the doctrine of Christ, and leads straight to perdition.


Moreover, we must keep the commandments of God. This is in the nature of love. If we truly love any one, we try to please him and take care not to offend him; we love to do his will; his wishes are to us commands. If, therefore, we have true love of God, we shall always strive to act conformably to His holy will, and conscientiously observe all His commandments.
Hence Christ emphatically says: "He that hath My commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me." (John 14:21) And St. John says: "This is the charity of God, that we keep His commandments." (I John 5:3) He therefore who violates a commandment of God in an important matter, or, what amounts to the same thing, commits mortal sin, such as cursing, blasphemy, fornication, adultery, or lives in enmity with his neighbor, tells God a lie whenever he says: "My God, I love thee." And how many are there who tell such a lie every time they make an act of love!

Christ assures us that His Father loves those that love Him, and that He, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, will come to them and make His abode with them. Is there anything more desirable than to be loved by God? What happiness to be able to say: "God loves me!" This love is infinitely more valuable than all the love and friendship of men, for when God loves us. He treats us as His children, enriches us with His graces, and makes us heirs of heaven. Even more, if we love God we become His holy temples.
The triune God comes to us and makes His permanent abode in our hearts, as the Apostle says; "Know you not that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?" (I Cor. 3:16) How honored would a poor man feel if his king should come and dwell in his hut! What an honor and a grace for us that the triune God comes and dwells in us!
And who enlightens, encourages and strengthens us in all good, purifies and sanctifies us more and more, and imparts to us with the greatest liberality all that we need for obtaining life everlasting. Oh, let us always preserve a pure and undefiled heart, that we may never lose the gracious presence of God.

Those who do not keep the word of Christ, that is, who refuse to do what He lays upon them as an obligation, cannot expect that God will love them and take His abode with them. Christ says: "Learn of Me because I am meek and humble of heart." (Matt. 11:29) and how many are there who allow themselves to be governed by anger, pride and ambition! He says: "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His justice, and all these things shall be added unto you." (Matt. 6:33); and how many are there who care only for worldly things and neglect the service of God and the business of their salvation! He says: "If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me." (Matt. 16:24); and how many are there who give full scope to their inordinate passions and inclinations and will not hear of mortification, self-denial and the carrying of the cross.
He says: "Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful" (Luke 6:36); and how many are there who are unmerciful towards the poor and the needy, who even try to take advantage of the necessities of their fellow men! He says: "If you will not forgive men, neither will your Father forgive you your offenses" (Matt. 6:15); and how many are there who, for months and years, live in enmity with their neighbor and refuse to forgive.
He says: "Amen I say to thee, thou shalt not go out from thence till thou repay the last farthing" (Matt. 5:26); and how many are there who sin by theft, cheating, injustice, and who possess the goods of others without making restitution!
Let us examine ourselves and see whether we are not of the great number of those who act contrary to the teaching of Christ. her: and as the Father hath given me commandment, so do I: Arise, let us go hence.

The Catholic Church is the work of divine Providence, achieved through the prophecies of the prophets, through the Incarnation and the teaching of Christ, through the journeys of the apostles, through the suffering, the crosses, the blood and dead of the martyrs, through the admirable lives of the saints.... When we see, then, so much help on God's part, so much progress and so much fruit, shall we hesitate to bury ourselves in the bosom of that Church? For beginning with the apostolic chair, down through successions of bishops, even to the open confession of all mankind, it has possessed the crown of teaching authority.

James Dobson beating the drum for war with Iran

While out of town I had the radio on and was scanning for stations and i came upon a talk being given by former Senator Rick Santorum about "radical islam".

As I listened to this propeganda i figured i was on one of these neo-con/zionist radio stations - you know the "Rush Limbaugh - Sean Hannity" type.

But to my surprize it was a "christian" radio station - if my memory serves me correctly it was WVCY out of Tomah, WI - but i could be wrong. It was a James Dobson "Focus of the Family" broadcast.

This broadcast was filled with lies to beat the drums of war against Iran.

Santorum actively sought the support of Jews during his campain - i wonder if that does not tell you where this man is coming from. He is an expert at mixing truth with lies - like most politicians and tv/radio preachers.

If you want a taste of the lies that the "evangelicals" are using to get us into war with Iran - here is a link to this Judas Goat - James Dobsons website with the program:

Bush grants presidency extraordinary powersDirective for emergencies apparently gives authority without congressional oversight

President BushPresident Bush has signed a directive granting extraordinary powers to the office of the president in the event of a declared national emergency, apparently without congressional approval or oversight.

The "National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive" was signed May 9, notes Jerome R. Corsi in a WND column.

It was issued with the dual designation of NSPD-51, as a National Security Presidential Directive, and HSPD-20, as a Homeland Security Presidential Directive.

The directive establishes under the office of the president a new national continuity coordinator whose job is to make plans for "National Essential Functions" of all federal, state, local, territorial and tribal governments, as well as private sector organizations to continue functioning under the president's directives in the event of a national emergency.

"Catastrophic emergency" is loosely defined as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions."

Corsi says the president can assume the power to direct any and all government and business activities until the emergency is declared over.
The directive says the assistant to the president for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, currently Frances Fragos Townsend, would be designated as the national continuity coordinator.
Corsi says the directive makes no attempt to reconcile the powers created for the national continuity coordinator with the National Emergency Act, which requires that such proclamation "shall immediately be transmitted to the Congress and published in the Federal Register."
A Congressional Research Service study notes the National Emergency Act sets up Congress as a balance empowered to "modify, rescind, or render dormant" such emergency authority if Congress believes the president has acted inappropriately.

But the new directive appears to supersede the National Emergency Act by creating the new position of national continuity coordinator without any specific act of Congress authorizing the position, Corsi says.

The directive also makes no reference to Congress and its language appears to negate any requirement that the president submit to Congress a determination that a national emergency exists.

It suggests instead that the powers of the directive can be implemented without any congressional approval or oversight.

Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke affirmed to Corsi the Homeland Security Department would implement the requirements of the order under Townsend's direction.

The White House declined to comment on the directive.

Thanks Cecelia for the e-mail on this story while i was away.

I'm back...

I see from the unposted comments that approvedworkman was showing his brand of Christianity by hoping that i get shot while hunting - typical of heretics.

Anyhow - the link below was shown at one of the stupid CE classes that i had to sit through while i was gone - this part of the class was about "stress" and the typical wordly ways of dealing with it. This video is about the pace of change in the world today and i found it very interesting - so i thought i would share it. Here is the link:

Also - i wanted to let you all know about an excellent product that i used. It is called "Thermacell" - and it is used to keep bugs away from you. I bought one for Turkey hunting - and it was amazing - we were getting swarmed with bugs and within a few minutes of turning this thing on there was not a bug near us.

I am not trying to advertise - but this product really does work - if you spend anytime outdoors and hate to put bug spray on - i highly recommend this product. Here is a link to the web-site - browse through the site - it has lost of information about the product.

Fr. Bernard, OFM giving his First Blessing to his parents


The Vision of Hell shown by Our Lady of Fatima to the children:


“As the Lady spoke the last words, she opened Her hands once more, as She had done the two previous months. The rays [of light] appeared to penetrate the earth, and we saw, as it were, a vast sea of fire. Plunged in this fire, we saw the demons and the souls [of the damned]. The latter were like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, having human forms. They were floating about in that conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames which issued from within themselves, together with great clouds of smoke. Now they fell back on every side like sparks in huge fires, without weight or equilibrium, amid shrieks and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and made us tremble with fright (it must have been this sight which caused me to cry out, as people say they heard me).


Demons were distinguished [from the souls of the damned] by their terrifying and repellent likeness to frightful and unknown animals, black and transparent like burning coals. That vision only lasted for a moment, thanks to our good Heavenly Mother, Who at the first apparition had promised to take us to Heaven. Without that, I think that we would have died of terror and fear.”


“You see Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them God wishes to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart,” Our Lady said.

HERE IS (ANOTHER) REALLY GOOD REASON TO HOMESCHOOL:

Gibson's Grandkids Confirmed in Mexico May 23, 2007 - 2:26am
HERMOSILLO, Mexico (AP) -
A prominent Mexican cleric confirmed two grandchildren of Mel Gibson in a brief ceremony Tuesday attended by the director of "The Passion of The Christ."
Roman Catholic Archbishop Emeritus Carlos Quintero Arce told reporters he performed the ceremony for Gibson's grandchildren and for several adults in the chapel of his home in Hermosillo, the capital of northern Sonora state. He did not identify the adults.
Gibson spent more than an hour at Quintero's house, then left without speaking to reporters. His plane departed Hermosillo Tuesday evening.
Confirmation is a sacrament by which a baptized person is welcomed into full membership in the church.
Gibson starred in the "Lethal Weapons" movies, and his directing credits include 2004's "The Passion of The Christ" and last year's Mayan epic "Apocalypto."
Gibson and his wife, Robyn, have seven children. It was not immediately clear which of his children the confirmed grandchildren were from.(Copyright 2007 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.)
http://www.wtopnews.com/index.php?nid=114&sid=1147955

I found this to be an interesting article because to my knowledge, Mel Gibson's children are too young to have grandchildren old enough to be confirmed. Two possible explanations could be that it's actually Hutton Gibson's grandchildren or that they were confirmed immediately after baptism as was done in the early church.
The other point is that it was done in Mexico and we do have valid clergy in Mexico (and a valid Bishop ). It would be interesting to find out whether this Archbishop is SSPX or bogus ordo.

When we love Mary and cling to her as our Mother, we fulfil the dying request of Jesus. Thus, on the Cross, just as He was about to breathe His last, He made His will, as it were, and left His nearest and dearest possession on earth as a legacy to the Apostles, the Church, and all the faithful, with the wish that we should enter into these filial dispositions towards His holy Mother.
**Taken from "Meditations on the Passion"
"O Mary, my tender Mother! I will ever love thee, and cling to thee, and call on thy sweet name. Love and protect me, my Mother, for the sake of Jesus Who gave thee to me, and to thee. Powerful Virgin! obtain for me the pardon of my sins, and eternal life! O Jesus, my all-merciful Benefactor! how shall I ever thank Thee enough for giving me Thy mother as mine! Jesus and Mary! may your dear and blessed names by engraven on my heart, and may my last words be: "Jesus and Mary! I love you and give you my heart and my life."

Baptism is probably the simplest Sacrament to get right. All that has to be done is to use water and the words of Scripture. Even mainline Protestant baptisms using the Trinitarian form are valid. In recent years, however, there has been increasing evidence that in various places around the world, Newchurch is performing invalid Baptisms. There have been sporadic reports from Canada, Australia, and the United States, for instance, that Newchurch has not been using the Trinitarian form.

Now word comes from Mexico City that Newchurch has been performing mass baptisms that are invalid because they substitute a non-Biblical, non-Trinitarian form. At the Newchurch Metropolitan Cathedral in Mexico City, one of the largest cathedrals in the Western Hemisphere, as many as eight groups are "baptized" each Sunday. According to a May 22, 2007, Washington Post report, the form being used there is: "May the strength of Jesus Christ the Savior be yours." This is a non-Biblical, non-Trinitarian, invalid form. The report also indicated that the water was merely touched to the forehead, not poured.

Pictures of students doing drugs in yearbook spark outrage

JEFFERSON COUNTY - There are a number of things Karen Marshall does not like about her daughter's Conifer High School yearbook. Three pages in particular; pages 13, 33 and 71.


"On page 13, they have students smoking pot and using drug paraphernalia," she said. "I just don't want to see any more people get hurt or die and this book is actually helping towards the delinquency of minors."

It was just over a week ago that two Conifer students died when their Jeep rolled off the road.
The Colorado State Patrol believes drugs may have played a role in that crash.

Monday, the yearbook advisor, Amy McTague released a statement apologizing to the students, staff and community for the controversial images and quotes.

She says she discussed the photos at length with her editor and they agreed that some of the elements are completely inappropriate. She goes on to say "these issues detract from the many wonderful things that are included in the book."

Photos on three pages of the book show teens smoking marijuana, drinking and proudly displaying their minor in possession citations.

"There are some things in the yearbook I don't feel like I can defend," Conifer High Principal Pat Termin said, adding some parts of the book crossed the line.

"We didn't do the right thing in some of the activities we portrayed," she said. "I'm certainly not oblivious to messages here that we have this section in the yearbook that some students believe it was important for them to illuminate. I think it's an issue the community needs to examine."

"I don't think it's that big of a deal," said freshman Drew Daughtry. "There are drugs wherever you go. They were just trying to show what really happens with students. It's part of their life."

Marshall says that might be, but as a parent, she wants positive activities highlighted, not the other way around.

"This book represents everyone, not just the drug addicts at Conifer High School," she said.

The school says it will refund the parents who want to return the book and fix the captions on the books the families want to keep.

According to school administrators, it's too early to say if McTague will be disciplined. They say she has a great record with the school and has produced at least six amazing yearbooks.

Let women join priesthood: Star Poll Local News
Monday, May 21, 2007 @ 09:00

A majority of respondents to an informal Sudbury Star survey supports the ordination of women as Roman Catholic priests by a renegade group that is not recognized by the church. Roughly six out of 10 respondents to The Star's weekly Internet-based survey answered in the affirmative to the question: "Do you agree with the decision of a group of Catholics to ordain women as priests outside of church teachings?"
As of Sunday evening, a total of 299 respondents to The Star's survey, or 59.6 per cent, indicated they agree with the ordination of women as Catholic priests. The Star poll was taken after an international group of church activists, the Roman Catholic Womenpriests, disclosed it would hold its first ordination ceremony in Canada on May 27.
A Sudbury resident, Marie Bouclin, will be one of three women who will be ordained in the ceremony in Toronto. A female bishop from Germany will preside over the ceremony, which will not recognized by the Roman Catholic Church.

Founded in 2002, the Roman Catholic Womenpriests movement has ordained 14 women priests in the United States and one in Canada. The group says it has more than 100 other women who want to be ordained. The Sudbury Star's Internet poll on the issue of female priests drew a total of 502 responses over the past week. A total of 168 respondents, or 33.5 per cent, stated they disagree with the ordination of women, while another 35 respondents, or seven per cent, indicated they were not sure. The Star's Internet poll is not a scientific public-opinion survey and reflects the views of participating users only. Poll results cannot be assumed to represent the views of the public or Osprey Media.

The question of female priests in the Catholic Church also drew dozens of calls to The Star's telephone news line, with comments ranging from the thoughtful to the vitriolic.
"I don't agree with those women; I think they're mentally ill," said one woman.

"I don't believe it's the proper thing, for a lady to become a priest," said a male caller.

"I have no discrimination against women, but it seems that men are better teachers for religion than would be a lady."
Those who can't follow church rules should find another church, another caller suggested.

"I don't agree that a group can go off by themselves and decide what the church should do and what the church should follow," the man said.

"If they can't obey the teachings of the church, then let them find a church that will."

One woman argued the ordination of women is long overdue in the Catholic church, adding that centuries ago, the church recognized female priests. "I sure agree that women should be ordained as priests," she said. "After all, Jesus held no vile attitude toward women; many were Jesus' companions and they played an active role in the community. "

Unfortunately, some male fools who thought they knew better than the good Lord took complete control of the church and today the church does not want to yield that power. They've always feared and will always fear women and it is this fear of women, the fear of losing their control, that governs them."

The male-dominated Catholic church must change, stated another woman. "I agree with the group that thinks they should ordain women priests in the Catholic church. That's what the Roman Catholic Church really needs; it's too men-oriented.

Pope Pius XII concerning membership in the Roman Catholic Church which is properly and correctly called the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ.
Please refer to these words of Pope Pius XII whenever you have a doubt or question regarding the claims of heretics whose blind boldness knows no limit:


Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith, and who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or been excluded by legitimate authority for grave faults committed. "For in one spirit" says the Apostle, "were we all baptized into one Body, whether Jews or Gentiles, whether bond or free." As therefore in the true Christian community there is only one Body, one Spirit, one Lord, and one Baptism, so there can be only one faith. And therefore if a man refuse to hear the Church let him be considered _ so the Lord commands _ as a heathen and a publican. It follows that those who are divided in faith or government cannot be living in the unity of such a Body, nor can they be living the life of its one Divine Spirit.

A LITTLE ENCOURAGEMENT FROM PRO-LIFE WISCONSIN:

For many years the Third Order in Milwaukee went to the Farwell Avenue abortuary and prayed the ry. We stopped going when we moved to Waubeka due to time constraints and distance. This was in my in box today and even though we were not directly involved in this, we still know that our prayers were being heard:

This past weekend, a group of Pro-Life Wisconsin supporters were at the Planned Parenthood abortion mill in Milwaukee , talking to the women entering for an abortion. As pro-lifers were leaving, a woman approached, and proceeded to tell her story of how 20 years ago, she was persuaded not to have an abortion. The woman had come to the Milwaukee Planned Parenthood, with the intent to abort her unborn baby, when she was talked out of it by sidewalk counselors. The woman’s unborn baby is now a pre-med, full scholarship sophomore at Marquette University . So just remember, no matter how big or small your part in pro-life work, every little bit counts. And this truly is life-affecting, life-changing work.


Keep praying for the end to this holocaust - the REAL holocaust!

Did Solomon Prophesy the Demise of Newchurch?
In a little-known passage from Sacred Scripture, it appears that King Solomon predicted the demise of Newchurch, as he did that of the Jewish Temple, which he himself had built. His description of the day when the Faith and its sacred ceremonies would be abandoned sounds exactly like the current situation of Newchurch, when so many of those who call themselves "Catholic" have abandoned God's Faith and traditional sacred ceremonies, and when a battered Newchurch is paying the penalty for that abandonment:

But if you and your children revolting shall turn away from following me, and will not keep my commandments, and my ceremonies, which I have set before you, but will go and worship strange gods, and adore them. I will take away Israel from the face of the land which I have given them. And the temple which I have sanctified to my name, I will cast out of my sight. And Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people. And this house shall be made an example of. Every one that shall pass by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss, and say: Why hath the Lord done thus to this land, and to this house? And they shall answer: Because they forsook the Lord their God, who brought their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and followed strange gods, and adored them, and worshipped them. Therefore hath the Lord brought upon them all this evil? (3 Kings 9:6-9/DRV)
This passage provides a clear answer to the question that all too many ask: Why has the Lord brought upon Newchurch all this evil? The answer is that the Newchurchers have forsaken their God and worshipped strange gods.

FOR A LITTLE CHANGE OF PACE, I THOUGHT YOU MIGHT LIKE TO SEE SOME PHOTOS OF MY TWO YOUNGEST SONS PLAYING BASKETBALL. THEY PLAY FOR A HOMESCHOOL TEAM CALLED THE SWCHA SAINTS. (SWCHA STANDS FOR "SOUTHEAST WISCONSIN CHRISTIAN HOMESCHOOL ASSOCIATION) . IT IS A FANTASTIC LEISURE TIME ACTIVITY FOR THEM. THEIR COACHES ARE WONDERFUL MEN AND THEY HAVE MADE MANY GOOD FRIENDS ON THE TEAM. IT HELPS MAKE HOMESCHOOLING A LITTLE EASIER FOR THEM TO HANDLE.
BOTH OF THESE PHOTOS ARE OF BOBBY MAKING THE BASKET BUT CHRISTOPHER (OFIE) PLAYS AS WELL. A LADY ON THE TEAM MADE EACH OF US 5 DISCS FULL OF PICTURES OF THE BOYS AS A GIFT BUT I'M SO TECHNO CHALLENGED THAT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO LOAD THEM INTO THE COMPUTER TO SHOW YOU! BUT YOU GET THE PICTURE.
HOPE YOU ENJOY THEM!
