The insanity knows no bounds and this is supposed to be a Church, but in what religion. Surely not Christian, for if it is it is a Christian denomination that I am not aware of.

The persons who attended with their guns AR-15s cannot be Christians.

The Secular Jurist

By Robert A. Vella

Shortly after America ended its involvement in the Vietnam War, I enlisted in the U.S. Army.  As a soldier, I was trained in the operation of various infantry weapons including the mighty M16 assault rifle.  I describe it so haughtily because the weapon truly is mighty.  I never was sent into combat;  but, if I had, I wouldn’t want to be armed with anything less.

The M16 is light in weight and comfortable to carry – a trait greatly appreciated by weary pack-laden soldiers marching for long periods across difficult terrain.  It also has large magazine capacities and a high muzzle-velocity which greatly improves accuracy especially at long range.  The selector switch on the M16 allows it to be fired in semi-automatic or automatic modes.  In the normal semi-automatic mode, the weapon will discharge rounds as fast as the operator can pull the trigger (which…

I believe we all should live in harmony with each and in doing so we should all respect the views of each other. Whether there is a God or not or which religion we follow is up to each individual and no other persons or organisation should decide otherwise.

Religions are beliefs and not a matter of fact and should never be held to be based on facts. Many of the religious scriptures were written many years after the events with no proof they occurred except for hearsay.

If religion make you feel good or not is up to the individual and not any other.

Respect each other and their beliefs, but do not dictate these to others, leave this to individual choice.

By all mean advise children the different religions but no one should say one is better or not than the other. Children should be allowed to make up their own minds, but they should be taught respect, understanding, compassion and that we all have a right to live our own lives, provided we all abide by the laws of the land.

Opher's World

There are many people who believe that the world is 6000 years old. Should we allow them to teach this to our children as a fact?

There are many people who believe that evolution is nonsense. Should we allow them to tell our children that it is nonsense?

There are many people who think god put fossils in the rocks. Should we allow them to tell our children that this is what happened?

There are many people who believe there is a god. Should they be allowed to tell our children that god is a fact?

There are many people who believe that their religion is right and all the others are wrong. Should they be allowed to tell our children that their religion is the only right one?

There are many people who believe that the Old Testament, or New Testament, or the Koran, or the Upanishads, or the…

I Agree and this should be outlawed in any civilisation.

Opher's World

We have no problem whatsoever in declaring that female circumcision is child abuse. If a parent allows their female child to be mutilated then most civilised people would shout loudly that it is wrong.

It does not matter if the parents erroneously believe that it is a religious practice.

Religious practices are not above the law.

Some religious practice declares that it is not only alright, but an absolute mandate from god, to take the life of a nonbeliever. It is never right.

Some religious belief declares that it is right for a wife to throw herself on the funeral pyre of her husband.

Female circumcision is an abuse. It is wrong. It is illegal. It never should happen.

Neither should male circumcision be allowed. It is nowhere near as bad as female mutilation but it is the same principle. A child should not be subjected to such a mutilation…

When Billy Graham stands before the judgement seat of God, he may finally realize how badly he failed his country, and perhaps his God. On civil rights and the environmental crisis, the most important issues of his lifetime, he championed the wrong policies.

Graham was on the wrong side of history.

The world’s most famous evangelist let his apocalyptic anticipation of the coming kingdom of God blind him to the realities of living in this world.

For Graham, the Bible had a clear message for Christians living in what he believed were humans’ last days on earth. Individuals alone can achieve salvation; governments cannot. Conversions change behaviors; federal policies do not.

These convictions shaped the evangelist’s views on civil rights.

In the late 1950s, Graham integrated his revivals and seemed to support the burgeoning civil rights movement. This is the Graham most Americans remember.

But as the movement grew, expanded and became increasingly confrontational, the evangelist’s position changed.

Once leaders like Martin Luther King Jr began practicing civil disobedience and asking for the federal government to guarantee African Americans’ rights, Graham’s support evaporated.

Monica has a right to her opinion and here she eloquently expresses it, she is a true believer.

She is quite correct that the swamp needs to be removed, but is Donald Trump the person to do this, for I believe he his also part of the Swamp.

He may be removing parts of the swamp, but only to replace it with other parts of the swamp.

Within the this YOUTube video she expresses that Donald Trump is imperfect and that he is making mistakes, as we all do.

The problem with Trump is that when he makes mistakes he does not accept that he is making mistakes and therefore is not aware that he should be learning from them.

Making mistakes is something we all do, but the message to learn is that by making mistakes you learn from them and this then mitigates  making these or similar mistakes again and you become a stronger, better person in doing so.

To always assume you are always correct is a fatal flaw as no one is 100% correct, 100% of the time, but Donald Trump truly believes that he is.

You either like or do not like Trump and I am one of the latter. Some of his principles are not in agreement with mine, especially his racist views and his inability to understand the concept of mistakes, in reference to himself, are a major contributory factor.

Whether he is or will be good for America is still to be seen, however, the bigger picture needs to be considered and this is in respect of The World.

I feel in World affairs that individualism is now not a major factor, although this is still a consideration, but now in most aspects there is globalism as whatever is done in one area as consequences for other areas. the two need to be working in conjunction with each other.

In fact with his America First he is acting within the aspects of individualism, the continual interference of America in international areas is not individualism but globalism. Even Trump promised in his campaign to not have American action in areas outwith America and that he would pull American forces out of non-American areas of conflict. This is one of his promises that he has not kept to. Trump could argue that some American forces need to be provided to ensure the safety of America, but the appliance of these forces is, in many areas, counter productive as it only provokes more aggression from the people native to these areas, which, in turn, creates more problems for the seen to be invaders.

Great care and attention needs to be applied before any country inflicts their forces on any other independent country.

Unfortunately it is a human trait that we feel we need to intervene, without considering all the consequences, in many areas of the world and in doing so cause many conflicts that may not have occurred, should they have not intervened.

Why can we not all agree to live in peace, which would be then beneficial to us all.



I’m a white American, but like a majority of us, that’s only small part of the story.

In a country where the federal government is currently in the hands of so-called “nativists” like Trump and his white mostly male Republican Party backers only celebrate white roots, I like many of us have various genetic strands that include a little of what might best be called “diversity.” There is a touch of Native American on my mother’s side — hardly enough to qualify for inclusion in the Algonquin Nation, but enough to remind me and my siblings that our ancestors include both conquerers and the conquered.

Then too, while there is a direct line on both my mother’s side and my father’s side tracing back to the same Warren family that arrived on the Mayflower in 1620, there are also immigrants who came from Scotland (the Stewart Clan) and Ireland on my mother’s side, and from Germany (Kerpol) and England (the Plymptons and Lincolns) on my father’s.

For me, one of the most interesting roots is my great great grandfather, a Lindorff who left Sweden for G

Christmas messages but do they all practice what they preach and do they truly believe.

In her Christmas message, the prime minister said there is a “confidence… that in Britain you can practice your faith free from question or fear”.

She also praised the emergency services for their Grenfell Tower and Manchester and London terror attacks responses.

Life Plan

Christmas is a unique time of the year. You understand it right when you spend these festive days in a European city. Each country has its own traditions and is a good time to travel to different parts of the old continent. The cities are decorated with every Christmas details the human mind has captured, while we are full of emotions.

December 25th is the most Christmas day and is surrounded by great religiousness. Both family and social or religious customs imposed by the time can lead you a step closer to God, to a festive meal, to a song, and a variety of other commonplace activities for some places. With the sound of the festive bells ringing in our ears, we will travel to the European countries with the most interesting Christmas customs.

Words To Captivate ~ by John Fioravanti



In my last post in this series, “Let Us Change the World!”I reflected upon the role of education in bringing about positive change in the world through a quote by Nelson Mandela. His words were spoken in the context of a speech he made to students in Boston in 1990 to encourage them to remain in school and help transform the world into a better place.
