Firefighter Fired for Bringing Watermelon to Work

watermelons-watermelon-afp-photo-640x480“A Detroit firefighter was fired before he officially began his first day on the job for bringing a watermelon to work. Robert Pattison, 41, introduced himself to his fellow firefighters at Engine 55 at the corner of Joy and Southfield in Detroit by bringing a welcome gift, WJBK reported. Second Battalion Chief Shawn McCarty calls this welcome gift “a tradition” for Engine 55’s firefighters. “It’s not mandatory, it’s voluntary,” he said. “You come in bearing gifts. The usual gift is doughnuts, but you are allowed to bring whatever you want to bring in.” Pattison, who was a probationary firefighter, decided to stand out from the crowd and bring a watermelon with a pink bow on top. Some black firefighters were reportedly offended by Pattison’s gesture since 90 percent of the firefighters at Engine 55 are black.” –Source

This is so childish! Such hate, such racist hate! And no, I am not talking about the guy with the watermelon. I am talking about the boss that fired him because he got offended by him bringing what he assumed was an honest gift to them on his first day of work; which by the way was customary for new firefighters to do on their first day on the job. And no, as the article proves, he did not bring that watermelon as an insult.  Continue reading

Faith, Astrology, and the Total Solar Eclipse

Total-solar-eclipse-Getty-640x480The ancient pagan astrologers regarded solar eclipses as bad omens.

So, too, did the rabbis of the Talmud, who warned in Tractate Sukkah, page 29a, that solar eclipses forecast ill fortune.

But by that time, eclipses could be predicted. That raised a fundamental question about free will: how can eclipses be bad signs if we can predict them?

The question the rabbis wrestled with was also familiar to St. Augustine, as well as other Christian philosophers.   Continue reading

CHICAGO (RNS) In his final speech as president of the United States, President  Obama spoke of his faith in American democracy and warned his supporters not to retreat into despair.

Obama had returned to his adopted hometown of Chicago for his farewell address Tuesday night (Jan. 10) at McCormick Place.

It’s the city where his political career began — where he had given his victory speeches on election night in 2008 at Grant Park and in 2012, also at McCormick Place.   Continue reading

Churches Offering ‘Safe Places’ to Migrants Crossing Canadian Border

Border-Patrol-winter-640x480“Migrants are looking to be harbored by churches, hospitals, and schools to avoid potential deportation under Trump’s proposed immigration plans, according to CBC News. Doran Schrantz, the director of a faith organization geared to help illegal immigrants, launched a statewide effort in Minnesota to create “safe places” for migrants who face deportation after crossing into the country from the northern border. …Since starting the effort, Schrantz said there are now over 200 “faith leaders” who have promised to accept illegal immigrants into their churches to evade federal immigration law.” –Source

First of all a “migrant” is someone who came into a country legally either by using a visa who then stays for a while and either extends the visa to stay a little longer, or actually does the paperwork to gain citizenship of the country they are visiting in legally. So right off the headline and the one writing the article is being very deceptive. And as much as I wouldn’t vote for Trump or any other politician for that matter, the left keeps claiming he and others like him that say illegals are just that “illegal” anyone with a computer can dig up hundreds of videos wherein Trump and others have stated it’s not the legal migrants that’s the issue, it’s the illegal ones that’s causing the problem. But Rome and their political pawns on the left purposely lie about all that as this article and thousands like it confirms. And they lie because they must have the illegals flood into the nation to assure a massive voting bloc the next time they has some hell inspired agenda to get through the halls of Congress or excessively wicked leader to gain office.   Continue reading

Argentina rocked by story of two priests’ sexual abuse of children for decades

file“The children said they wailed as the two Roman Catholic priests repeatedly raped them inside the small school chapel in remote northwestern Argentina. Only their tormenters would have heard their cries since the other children at the school were deaf. …the Vatican knew about him since at least 2009, when the Italy victims went public with tales of shocking abuse against the most vulnerable of children and named names. In 2014, the Italian victims wrote directly to Pope Francis again naming the Rev. Nicola Corradi as a pedophile and flagged that he was living in Francis’ native Argentina. Yet apparently, nothing was done.” –Source
And why should the Vatican do anything at all? After all, all we can expect is more of the same lip service the previous Popes offered wherein nothing was done to slow or even stop the raping of children. Like when given the chance to actually help the children, the “zero tolerance” legislation for the Vatican was vetoed by John Paul II. But herein lies the sticky wicket for the present Pope. They need to spin this one extra carefully because the very man that stands as Jesuit Pope Francis today was the very same man who stood as Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergolio over Argentina when the molestation scandal was first discovered back in 2009. He did nothing then, and judging by his past, and the past Popes; he won’t do much more than offer lip service now either.   Continue reading

2016: A time of political and spiritual miracles?

wndb-farah-restitution-of-all-things-cover“I’m hopeful he’s going to do his best to “make America great again.” But it will take more than better governance in Washington to heal our land. That’s why I wrote a very optimistic new book – my first new title in six years. It’s called “The Restitution of All Things.”The title comes from something the Apostle Peter said in Acts 3: …Peter mentions – something all the prophets of old spoke about? It’s the fact that Jesus is returning to rule and reign with His faithful friends – true believers like you and me – for a thousand years on Earth.” –Source

First and foremost, Joseph Farah of World Net Daily fame is a false prophet. He’s not only declared and preached some very strange Vatican dogmas over the years, he’s also one to promote Rome as a moral house by promoting the book, “Islamic Antichrist” on his News site of which I expose on my site here by simply using some easy to research historical facts that match perfectly with Bible prophecies that speak of certain activities the real Antichrist will do that Islam could not possibly do. One of the main reasons is, many of the prophesied acts were fulfilled long before the so called “prophet” Mohammed, who was also a Vatican invention, was born. The fact the Pope sits on a throne that has carved upon it the following words should be alarming enough for most.   Continue reading
