ArchBishop has that wailing and gnashing of teeth moment
By : Maitreya - Saturday April 7, 2007
The Church of England is guilty of "corporate failure" because it has not properly spread the message of Christ, the Archbishop of York has said. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/... This is getting really fascinating. It’s like the Anglican church is in total meltdown. How long will it be before he checks out what Constantine did, and realises it has all been a lie? He needs some Bob Marley, to help him along http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzxA... "We’re sick and tired (...)

ABOUT EASTER BUNNIES AND EGGS By Peter Fredson. March 6, 2007 Replay by Request A nephew in Mexico e-mailed me a question concerning Easter. His wife is a school teacher, and her pupils wanted to know why in the U.S. bunnies and colored eggs are associated with Easter. Most of the Mexican pupils were raised as Catholics and they only know of the alleged crucifixion, death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ in connection with Easter symbolism (Las Pascuas). No bunnies, no Easter (...)

Marshmallow Chicks and Chocolate Jesus

By Peter Fredson March 3, 2007 This is the time when Christian churches give out palm fronts, while people put ashes on their foreheads, eat Christ’s body, drink the blood of Jesus and make signs of crosses in the air. For me, the hero on the cross was Spartacus, but I know that other people disagree and do not celebrate his crucifixion. Some people dye little chicks pink and blue, while others have fuzzy chick replicas made of pink and blue marshmallow. Other people buy rabbits (...)

God’s Dupes
By : Sam Harris - Monday March 19, 2007

PETE STARK, a California Democrat, appears to be the first congressman in U.S. history to acknowledge that he doesn’t believe in God. In a country in which 83% of the population thinks that the Bible is the literal or "inspired" word of the creator of the universe, this took political courage. Of course, one can imagine that Cicero’s handlers in the 1st century BC lost some sleep when he likened the traditional accounts of the Greco-Roman gods to the "dreams of madmen" and to (...)

Israeli Politics of ‘Archeology’ in Jerusalem
By : Nicola Nasser - Tuesday February 13, 2007
By Nicola Nasser* The Israeli arrogance of being the regional military super power, unequivocally backed by the U.S. world super power, is dictating a kind of politics that deals trivially with the national and religious grievances of Israel’s geopolitical neighbors, whom the Jewish state is supposedly aspiring to live with in peace and as a regional integral part, while at the same time she is pursuing policies that antagonize those same neighbors to preclude altogether whatever (...)

Federalism: A Solution More for Israel than for Iraq

The drive by the Christian right to take control of military chaplaincies, which now sees radical Christians holding roughly 50 percent of chaplaincy appointments in the armed services and service academies, is part of a much larger effort to politicize the military (...)

A Return To Reality
By : Wayne Besen - Friday November 10, 2006
by Wayne Besen In the very week Saddam Hussein was sentenced to hang, George W. Bush has found his presidency in the gallows. Hussein now awaits his fate as a dead duck, while Bush will usher in his final two years as a lame duck. How bitterly ironic it must be that the Democratic landslide victory was fueled on outrage over the quagmire in Iraq and the president’s refusal to "change the course" even after the facts repeatedly changed on the ground. This is more a victory for reality (...)

As Democrats, we must not fear in speaking of God By Mary MacElveen November 3, 2006 If we are to believe that we live in a country based upon Christian values in which Bush and those like him wear God on their sleeve, as evident with the war in Iraq, in which Bush and the Republicans have broken some of the Ten Commandments. We must face up to the fact; we have not been living up to our Christian values. The reason why I only mention Christianity is because most that have led this (...)

Dangerous Ideas
By : wacky rascal - Thursday October 19, 2006
There is, let me assure you, nothing more egocentrical than an embattled democracy. It soon becomes the victim of its own war propaganda...(attaching) to its own cause an absolute value which distorts its own vision on everything else. Its enemy becomes the embodiment of all evil. Its own side, on the other hand, is the center of all virtue. George Kennan Remember, not so long ago, when internet enthusiasts were hailing the transformative powers of open source codes and materials that (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
