“Friday on CNN’s “New Day,” New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman criticized President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for U.S. ambassador to Israel David Friedman. Among the complaints Thomas Friedman had about the pick was David Friedman support of moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Such a gesture would upset many of the actors in the Middle East according to Thomas Friedman.” –Source
First of all I hate this when news reporters do this; but at least here we have somewhat of a confirmation of facts. What I mean is, notice how the reporter states right off in the video that the issue at hand has to do with “moving the Capital to Jerusalem.” They didn’t show previous comments and they certainly never repeated that statement throughout the clip. And then we see the comments that follow are all about moving the American Embassy to Jerusalem. Continue reading
“A recent study has found that women who attended a religious service more than once per week had with a 33% lower risk of death compared with women who had never attended religious services. That’s huge. According to Obamacare logic, we should seriously consider mandating that every American attend church every week. …But if forcing people to have coverage to save lives makes sense, then why not force them to go to church? Think about it: Obamacare forces every American to have health insurance and then tries to soften the blow of that mandate by heavily subsidizing coverage for those with the lowest incomes. In 2016, CBO estimates the federal government will spend $5,000 in subsidies for each uninsured person who gains coverage. Even if we believed the best-possible-case figures from the Massachusetts health reform–i.e., that expanded coverage reduced mortality risk by 30%– . In short, we could have all of the purported health benefits of Obamacare without incurring any of its costs!” –Source
Yes, the man writing the article is being quite sarcastic as well as having a little fun with the strange logic that runs through the political mind, but he does have a point here that most (himself included) my miss. First off it’s clear, the numbers don’t lie. So if they were to mandate church attendance as he jokingly suggests; and seeing how money rules the government AND the churches, it is a plausible outcome no matter how ridiculous it may seem to some. Still, even if he doesn’t realize it, it will happen. But not so much in the way he assumes. Continue reading
“A convicted pedophile has died after being badly beaten during a concert he was performing in a cathedral near Buenos Aires, attacked by parents from a preschool where he had allegedly molested children, a priest said. Marcelo Fabian Pecollo, a music teacher and trumpeter with the Moron city orchestra, was sentenced in 2010 to 30 years in prison for molesting five preschool children. He was freed in 2014 after a sentence reduction.” –Source
First and foremost, killing the man in a mob scene is most assuredly not the Christian way to handle this at all But since this is the Roman Catholic Cathedral de Moron wherein being under Vatican rule everything from abortion,Satanism and burning your neighbors homes down for refusing to partake in drunken festivals is deemed acceptable; one can expect the norm to be a violent outcome towards anyone that has “wronged” them.

(RNS) While rejection of evolution is strongly associated with Americans’ religiosity, the same is not true of climate change.
That’s the conclusion of a new study that sought to test popular assumptions about the link between religion and anti-science attitudes, and determine whether that link holds true for people’s views on both evolution and climate change.
The exception to this finding is evangelical Protestants.In a recent edition of the journal Environment and Behavior, Rice University sociologist Elaine Howard Ecklund and her colleagues write that while religious views drive Americans’ rejection of evolution, skepticism about climate change is more a function of political views and lack of confidence in the work of scientists.

Former Vice President Al Gore has met President-elect Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka Trump to discuss climate policy.
The meeting “was a sincere search for areas of common ground,” said Mr Gore, a climate change activist.
During his presidential campaign, Mr Trump called man-made climate change a “hoax” perpetuated by China.
His daughter Ivanka reportedly wants to make the subject one of her signature issues.
It is unclear what role she will have in her father’s administration, but he had said that his children would take over his global business interests.
All three of Mr Trump’s adult children are serving on his transition team. Continue reading
“A priest in Italy has caused uproar after announcing there would be no Christmas nativity scene at the local cemetery this year because it could offend Muslims and atheists. Fr Sante Braggiè said there would be no crib in the cemetery in the northern city of Cremona because it may anger people of others faiths or none whose relatives are buried there. …The local chief of the conservative Lega Nord, Pietro Burgazzi, also said: “I hope the decision not to put up a crib was not ideological, but hearing the criticisms it seems that it was.” –Source
It amazes me to no end how quick Roman Catholic priests are to bow down to Satan in refusing to share Jesus with anyone outside the Catholic church. Now, before you email me with eyebrows still firmly raised in surprise, no I am not declaring the Roman Catholic church is a Christian church. I have overwhelming evidence on more than 12,000 pages (if printed) of this website that it is by no means a Christian church. (Sorry Mr & Mrs Catholic, there’s just no easy way to say that) And no I am not saying Christmas is a Christian holy-day either. As many already know, I have a ton of evidence that Christmas is 100% Pagan. Just looking at the picture on the left with the Pagan stained glass window in the so called stable shows it promotes Paganism. I mean seriously, when was the last time anyone saw a window, let alone a stained glass window in a stable? It was placed there for a reason. (See more about Paganism in the church of Rome here) Continue reading
“For some, it’s a dream come true: The ability to walk into a grocery store, grab anything you want off the shelves, and simply walk out. There’s no need to wait in line at a busy cash register. Your bank account will be automatically debited when you leave the store. It’s magical. …So the day is coming when people will be able to pull up to cashier-less stores in their driverless car, leaving their cashless wallet at home. All they will need is their smartphone and Amazon’s new app, called Amazon Go. The first Amazon Go pilot store is already open to the company’s employees in Seattle and it will open to the public in January. …While super convenient, Wood and others are cautioning to let the buyer beware. What you gain in convenience, you will lose in privacy.” –Source
