Between Heaven and Hell


PAKISTAN-UNREST-RELIGION

Shamim Masih writes about the gap between the poor Christian majority of Pakistan and the wealthier Christian minority of Pakistan. Shamim’s text is Mark 12: 31 of which the context can be found in Mark 12: 28-31. Shamim’s ire might seem to American Christians that are to the right of the political spectrum as a Social Justice and Spread the Wealth concepts of Left Wing American Christians (A more detailed exploration of Progressive Christianity HERE). Nonetheless, the persecution that is too often felt by Pakistan’s poorer Christians while the wealthier Christians promote themselves or market a business that is more beneficial to Pakistan’s majority Muslim population is a bit of a back stabbing to Pakistan’s poorer Brothers and Sisters in Christ.

Between Heaven and Hell

 

By Shamim Masih

ISLAMABAD: The Bible shows that there are two great commandments. The first commandment is to love God with all our being. The second commandment is to love our neighbors as ourselves. So how do we show that we love our neighbors?

 

Jesus said, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

 

Let me give you a story of a Christian from West Virginia, he narrates:

 

“I’ve always loved to work on cars. Whenever I was out driving and saw someone alongside the road with car problems, I stopped to help. It was rewarding to fix their car, but more rewarding to help them.

 

“One time in the dead of winter, I found this stranded couple trying to stay warm in their freezing car. No one had stopped to help. Another time, a family of six was trying to make it to their relatives for some food to eat. They had put a couple of dollars of gas in their old car, hoping it would be enough. It wasn’t.

 

“I was always thankful to God that I could help. But just like them, one day my car broke down. I had a flat tire and had no spare. I was in the middle of nowhere. But then, something happened I will never forget!

 

“I got out and leaned against my car, wondering what I was going to do. Seemingly out of nowhere, two men in an old wrecker suddenly pulled along beside me.

 

“‘You need a tire, don’t you?’ asked one of them. Before I could even answer, they got out of the wrecker, grabbed a tire from the back, and changed my tire as I stood there speechless! When they finished, I asked, ‘How much do I owe you?’ The man simply replied, ‘Nothing. We all need a hand every now and then.’ They promptly turned around and drove away.

 

“I know that God sent these ‘Good Samaritans’ to help me. God says that when we look out for others, He will look out for us. He proved it to me that day.”

 

Street life:

 

More than 25 million Pakistani Christians are living below the poverty line. The Life of Christians living in the slum areas is not better than street life.

 

On the other hand, Christian leadership [in Pakistan] includes religious, social and political [privileges] enjoying luxurious lives. Do they justify that they are following Christ’s teaching? Correct me if I am wrong, charities are based on the teaching of Christ, “love thy neighbor”. So it is mandatory for religious leadership and it applies to social leadership as well. But ground reality is totally opposite. It is reported that some Churches in Pakistan have properties worth billions of dollars in the shape of Christian Missionary Schools, Colleges and Hospitals which are being run as business concerns and benefiting Muslims only. And [the Christian] establishment of Pakistan uses its clergy to speak against issues of common Christians on international forums but I assure them that they do not represent a common Christian. Pakistani Bishops have luxury homes in the UK, France, the US, and Europe, whereas the communities for whom these donations are received are living in the slum areas.

 

Even non-profit organizations –NGOs funded for charitable programs- spend millions of rupees for their personal promotions and for their own luxuries rather than doing something for poor’s. I will soon uncover the stories behind the closed doors that [demonstrate] how these black sheep play with the sentiments of marginalized community.  Where does a common Christian stand, “between heaven and hell”?

 

It is also reported that the same NGO workers have been fighting to hake [perhaps bake or hack] the case. It is pathetic that the Church that is the essence of Christianity is not seen anywhere.  Reconciliation is at the heart of the gospel. Jesus said that the essence of Christianity could be summed up in two inseparable commandments: Love God, and love thy neighbor. First, Christian Community Development is concerned with reconciling people to God and bringing them into a church fellowship where they can be a disciple in their faith.

 

But can a gospel that reconciles people to God without reconciling people to people be the true gospel of Jesus Christ? Our love for Christ should break down every racial, ethnic or economic barrier. As Christians come together to solve the problems of their community, the great challenge will be to partner and witness together across these barriers. Christian Community Development [I am uncertain if Shamim is referring to the concept of rich-poor unity or to an organization. I found a Pakistani NGO that could also be the reference of Shamim – Christian Development Organization of Pakistan (CDOP)] recognizes that the task of loving the poor is shared by the entire body of Christ, black, white, brown, and yellow, rich and poor, urban and suburban.

 

Be Blessed,

Shamim Masih

Tony Newbill Emails 6/17/13 to 6/28/13


NWO Obama Fascism and Sheeple

 

In this section of Tony Newbill email topics range from the IRS as a Leftist weapon against Conservatives, the U.N. Agenda 21 and Whistleblowers. It is my opinion a Whistleblower exposes information that is harmful to the public health or harmful to America’s constitutional Bill of Rights. This series of emails deal with Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden and Karen Hudes.

Day After Obama Meets Treasury, Tea Party Targeting Begins

This is rather telling.


Check it out:

 

Obama and the IRS: The Smoking Gun?

 

THE AMERICAN SPECTATOR:


“For me, it’s about collaboration. — National Treasury Employees Union President Colleen Kelley on the relationship between the anti-Tea Party IRS union and the Obama White House

 

Is President Obama directly implicated in the IRS scandal?

 

Is the White House Visitors Log the trail to the smoking gun?

 

The stunning questions are raised by the following set of new facts.

March 31, 2010.

 

According to the White House Visitors Log, provided here in searchable form by U.S. News and World Report, the president of the anti-Tea Party National Treasury Employees Union, Colleen Kelley, visited the White House at 12:30pm that Wednesday noon time of March 31st.

 

The White House lists the IRS union leader’s visit this way:

 

Kelley, Colleen Potus 03/31/2010 12:30

 

In White House language, “POTUS” stands for “President of the United States.”

 

The very next day after her White House meeting with the President, according to the Treasury Department’s Inspector General’s Report, IRS employees — the same employees who belong to the NTEU — set to work in earnest targeting the Tea Party and conservative groups around America. The IG report wrote it up this way:

 

April 1-2, 2010: The new Acting Manager, Technical Unit, suggested the need for a Sensitive Case Report on the Tea Party cases. The Determinations Unit Program Manager Agreed.

 

In short: the very day after the president of the quite publicly anti-Tea Party labor union — the union for IRS employees — met with President Obama, the manager of the IRS “Determinations Unit Program agreed” to open a “Sensitive Case report on the Tea party cases.” As stated by the IG report.

 

Continue Reading on spectator.org

http://spectator.org/archives/2013/05/20/obama-and-the-irs-the-smoking

 

The NTEU is the 150,000 member union that represents IRS employees along with 30 other separate government agencies. Kelley herself is a 14-year IRS veteran agent. The union’s PAC endorsed President Obama in both 2008 and 2012, and gave hundreds of thousands of dollars in the 2010 and 2012 election cycles to anti-Tea Party candidates.

 

Putting IRS employees in the position of actively financing anti-Tea Party candidates themselves, while in their official positions in the IRS blocking, auditing, or intimidating Tea Party and conservative groups around the country.

 

The IG report contained a timeline prepared by examining internal IRS e-mails. The IG report did not examine White House Visitor Logs, e-mails, or phone records relating to the relationship between the IRS union, the IRS, and the White House.

Whistleblower Reveals World Bank Corruption in New Interview exposes the Currency War that’s Coming!!!!!

 

World Bank: Money Laundering Criminals | Interview with Whistleblower; pay attention to this name. She is Karen Hudes. Hudes’ bio highlights her 21-year experience at the World Bank as Senior Legal Counsel:

 

She worked in the US Export Import Bank of the US from 1980-1985 and in the Legal Department of the World Bank from 1986-2007. She established the Non-Governmental Organization Committee of the International Law Section of the American Bar Association and the Committee on Multilateralism and the Accountability of International Organizations of the American Branch of the International Law Association.

Whistleblower Reveals World Bank Corruption in New Interview exposes the Currency War that’s Coming!!!!!

 

http://www.activistpost.com/2013/06/whistleblower-reveals-world-bank.html

 

[SlantRight Editor: The below excerpt from the Activist Post places Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning on a favorable pedestal. This editor has always viewed Manning as a traitor. When Snowden first blew the whistle on NSA spying on ALL Americans’ privacy I hailed him as a hero; However after Snowden began sharing classified information with the Communist Chinese and probably the Russians, I began to view Snowden as a traitor.]

 

Whistleblowers continue to endure an increasing level of targeting and prosecution by an administration that touts its commitment to transparency. Despite this, many brave insiders continue to come forward to reveal the extent of corruption at the highest levels.

Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning are taking center stage at the moment. Yet, former World Bank Senior Legal Counsel, Karen Hudes, seen in the video below with Sean Stone, and a new video interview with RT’s Abby Martin is revealing equally important information about corruption at the World Bank, and a tiny group pulling the strings of politicians and the media to suppress knowledge of their activities.

The World Bank is already notorious for its wide range of human rights violations, land-grab schemes, environmental destruction and economic attacks on sovereign nations and local communities. Hudes offers some additional details about what she asserts is one single group controlling world financial markets and media. She also offers names of people who were involved in blackmail surrounding a 2007 prostitution scandal. …

 

 

Regardless of one’s view of the World Bank as an institution, Hudes’ information highlights that there are people who get into this type of work with good intentions, believing the propaganda they have been given. At the very least, her assertion that there is a network of insiders that will continue blowing the whistle about World Bank corruption bears watching. Lastly, it is worth noting her comments on the possibility of martial law in America and the steps being taken to avoid it. Time will tell.

Tony Newbill is the pseudonym for one of my favorite Conspiracy Theorists primarily because he sends a steady stream of thoughts for me to digest and post on my website. I should add that Tony does not appreciate that I connect the word ‘theory’ to conspiracy. I have to admit he has written so often that I am becoming a believer that the conspiracies he sends to me are more factual than theory. This is the case especially in these days that there is absolutely nothing to believe about the intentions and actions of President Barack Hussein Obama’s Administration.

VIDEO: Immigration, World Poverty and Gumballs – Updated 2010

 

Many proponents of open immigration policy believe that it is one of the best ways to combat global poverty and help those who cannot afford to take care of themselves. As immigration expert Roy Beck explains, however, this is simply not the answer.

Not only do a large percentage of immigrants coming into the United States actually qualify as much more financially stable than the billions around the globe who make less than a few dollars per day, but Beck’s Numbers USA research group says that expanding the number of those entering the country would actually be detrimental for everyone. Besides the economic issues that coming along with expanding the allowed immigration numbers from 1 to 2 million per year, the demographic of the immigrants is such that it really does not pull much from the billions who are stricken with severe poverty.

‘Open Borders = Economic Collapse’

Perhaps most importantly, Beck explains how if the annual US immigration numbers are too high, it would ultimately cause the economic infrastructure of the nation to collapse. Numbers like the 57 million immigrants that
Breitbart reports may be allowed to enter the country in the near future. At this point, everyone loses to economic collapse.

The good news is Congress cares about trying to fix our flawed immigration system and broken borders.

 

The bad news is they want to do it with a solution that looks a lot like Obamacare—the “Gang of Eight” 844-page-plus “comprehensive” bill.

 

The sad news is that such an “easy button” solution will not improve our immigration system.

 

History shows that big bills designed to solve everything wind up creating as many problems as they address. They become loaded with payoffs for special interests and often introduce measures that work at cross purposes.

Radio frequency identification devices are computer chips used to track cattle, consumer products and, in some U.S. schools, kids.

The devices can be implanted into student ID cards or attached to clothing for the purpose of monitoring students’ location on campus, replacing the need to take attendance.

Why would Muslim oil billionaires finance and develop controlling relationships with black college students? Well, like anyone else, they would do it for self-interest. And what would their self-interest be? We all know the top two answers to that question: 1. a Palestinian state and 2. the advancement of Islam in America. The idea then was to advance blacks who would facilitate these two goals to positions of power in the Federal government, preferably, of course, the Presidency. And why would the Arabs target blacks in particular for this job? Well, for the same reason the early communists chose them as their vanguard for revolution (which literally means “change”) in America. Allow me to quote Trotsky, in 1939: “The American Negroes, for centuries the most oppressed section of American society and the most discriminated against, are potentially the most revolutionary element of the population. They are designated by their historical past to be, under adequate leadership, the very vanguard of the proletarian revolution.” Substitute the word “Islam” for the words “the proletarian revolution,” and you most clearly get the picture, as Islam is a revolutionary movement just like communism is.

Debt Limit Bill Passes House, Ordering Obama To Pay Only Some U.S. Creditors On Time

 

Sent: 6/10/2013 2:12 PM

WASHINGTON — The House passed a measure Thursday that would amount to the rough equivalent of declaring bankruptcy for the United States, directing the government to meet only certain obligations if Congress failed to raise the country’s borrowing limit.

 

Republicans characterized the measure as a responsible step to mitigate the fallout from such a failure, but Democrats slammed it as the “Pay China First Act.”

 

The legislation, which is actually called the Full Faith and Credit Act, lacks support in the Democratic-controlled Senate, and President Barack Obama has threatened to veto it. But it passed the House 221 to 207.

 

If Congress does not raise the debt limit, the Full Faith and Credit Act would direct the White House to pay U.S. debts in a certain order — to first pay people on Social Security and holders of U.S. bonds, which include many major U.S. pension funds and foreign governments, with China being the largest among them.

 

Other obligations, from Medicare to military benefits, would go on the backburner.

 

Also passed was an amendment to bar members of Congress from getting paid if the debt limit is not raised.

 

Numerous independent economists have mocked such a scheme as irresponsible at best, deriding it as “the financial market equivalent of that Hieronymus Bosch painting of hell” and the first step to becoming a banana republic.

 

Republicans argued, however, that Obama and the Democrats have failed to cut Washington’s spending enough, so the bill is needed to force the president to act.

http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/main-core-a-list-of-millions-of-americans-that-will-be-subject-to-detention-during-a-national-crisis

 

Are you on the list?  Are you one of the millions of Americans that have been designated a threat to national security by the U.S. government?  Will you be subject to detention when martial law is imposed during a major national emergency?  As you will see below, there is actually a list that contains the names of at least 8 million Americans known as Main Core that the U.S. intelligence community has been compiling since the 1980s.  A recent article on Washington’s Blog quoted a couple of old magazine articles that mentioned this program, and I was intrigued because I didn’t know what it was.  So I decided to look into Main Core, and what I found out was absolutely stunning – especially in light of what Edward Snowden has just revealed to the world.  It turns out that the U.S. government is not just gathering information on all of us.  The truth is that the U.S. government has used this information to create a list of threats to national security that the government would potentially watch, question or even detain during a national crisis.  If you have ever been publicly critical of the government, there is a very good chance that you are on that list.

 

The following is how Wikipedia describes Main Core…

 

Main Core is the code name of a database maintained since the 1980s by the federal government of the United States. Main Core contains personal and financial data of millions of U.S. citizens believed to be threats to national security. The data, which comes from the NSA, FBI, CIA, and other sources, is collected and stored without warrants or court orders. The database’s name derives from the fact that it contains “copies of the ‘main core’ or essence of each item of intelligence information on Americans produced by the FBI and the other agencies of the U.S. intelligence community.”

 

It was Christopher Ketchum of Radar Magazine that first reported on the existence of Main Core.  At the time, the shocking information that he … (READ THE RESTMain Core: A List Of Millions Of Americans That Will Be Subject To Detention During Martial Law; By Michael Snyder; The American Dream; 6/10/13)

What Percentage of the GDP is critically tied to the Internet and what will happen to that value if the TRUST in its use is destroyed by this SPYING?? 

 

And how can we be sure this won’t ALWAYS be a Problem with the Political targeting by either party like the IRS has done by having access to this Snooping and Spying Data??? The Greed to stay in Power has been opened here by this Breach of trust.

 

Why NSA spying scares the world

 

http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/12/opinion/deibert-nsa-surveillance/index.html

 

VIDEO: Ronald Diebert on NSA Spying

 

For American citizens, the recent NSA scandal has touched off soul-searching discussions about the legality of mass surveillance programs, whether they violate the Fourth and Fifth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution, and whether proper oversight and accountability exist to protect American citizens’ rights.

 

Opinion: Massive spying on Americans is outrageous

 

Indeed, with respect to the case of PRISM, NSA’s secret set of tools used to collect data about overseas Internet communications, some argue the program actually enhances those safeguards for Americans — because it appears that collection of company data was segregated in such a way to limit the collection to “foreign citizens.” As reassuring as this may be for Americans, for the rest of us non-Americans who enjoy our Gmail, Google Docs, and Facebook accounts, it’s definitely unsettling: We’re all fair game.

 

While cyberspace may be global, its infrastructure most definitely is not.

 

For example, a huge proportion of global Internet traffic flows through networks controlled by the United States, simply because eight of 15 global tier 1 telecommunications companies are American — companies like AT&T, CenturyLink, XO Communications and, significantly, Verizon.

 

The social media services that many of us take for granted are also mostly provided by giants headquartered in the United States, like Google, Facebook, Yahoo! and Twitter. … (READ ENTIRITY – By Ronald Diebert; CNN Opinion; 6/12/13 Updated 2:54 PM EDT)

IRS AGENTS TRAIN WITH AR-15s – ARE THEY PREPARING TO ‘TARGET’ MORE CONSERVATIVES?

 

http://patriotaction.net/forum/topic/show?id=2600775%3ATopic%3A6269919&xgs=1&xg_source=msg_share_topic

 

As if there weren’t enough heavily armed federal agents already in a multitude of different departments, now the IRS is getting in on the semi-automatic act. Great, the same IRS that’s admitted to unfairly targeting Tea Party, Patriot and other conservative organizations is now arming to the teeth?

 

And the tax guys’ “target practice” so bothers one South Carolina congressman that’s he’s trying to get to the bottom of it.

 

Jeff Duncan (R-SC), chairman of the House Homeland Security oversight subcommittee, toured a federal law enforcement facility in late May and noticed agents training with the semi-automatic weapons. Even though it was a DHS training facility, the shooters reportedly identified themselves as IRS enforcement.

 

Duncan says he was surprised to hear they worked for the Internal Revenue Service:

 

When I left there, it’s been bugging me for weeks now, why IRS agents are training with a semi-automatic rifle AR-15, which has stand-off capability. Are Americans that much of a target that you need that kind of capability?

 

The IRS defends the training, in a statement that reads, in part:

 

As law enforcement officials, IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agents are equipped similarly to other federal, state and local law enforcement organizations. Special Agents receive training on the appropriate and safe use of assigned weapons.

 

In responding to the revelation about IRS agents training on AR-15s at a DHS facility, the agency included a link to its enforcement website. Okay, we checked out that link and found no obvious reference to the need for, or use of, high-powered “assault rifles”.

 

There were statements such as the following, which … (READ THE REST – By Bill Russell and Liberty News Team; Patriot Action Network – Investigate IRS Intimidation; 6/12/13 9:15pm)

Someone Needs to  ask Hillary Clinton why she did not stop this kind of abuse to the Muslim Women  while she was head of the VERY State Department that Could Have Made a Big Impact of this Abuse of Women’s Rights if she is actually so Concerned about Women’s Rights?

 

What is the world doing allowing Political Correction to silence the Outrage of this CRIME against Women??

 

Is this why those who seek freedom to be moderate Muslims are Scared to death to speak out against those who are radical jihadists.   If Muslims who want to be free from this do not find people who can create the platform for them to seek asylum from this kind of Threat to Liberty then we as a society of freedom loving people HAVE FAILED not only these people but the soldiers from every nation that have fought and gave up their liberties to defend the right to be free from this kind of Civil abuse!!!!!!!! 

 

UK: The Crisis of Female Genital Mutilation

 

http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/3705/uk-female-genital-mutilation

 

Despite these laws, no one has ever been prosecuted for performing FGM. Victims are often afraid to speak out for fear of physical abuse or death threats, some involving paid hitmen.

 

British authorities are redoubling their fight against the spiraling problem of female genital mutilation (FGM) after a weekly primetime television show broadcast by the BBC forced the previously “taboo” subject into mainstream debate.

 

FGM is endemic in Muslim-majority countries across Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Three million girls between infancy and age 15 are subject to FGM every year, and it is believed that 140 million women worldwide are suffering from the lifelong consequences of the practice.

 

FGM has emerged as a major problem in Europe due to mass immigration. The European Parliament estimates that 500,000 girls and women in the European Union are living with FGM, and every year another 180,000 girls in Europe are at risk of being “cut.”

 

Britain has the highest levels of FGM in Europe. According to a government-funded study published in 2007, at least 66,000 women and girls in Britain have had the procedure performed on them, and more than 20,000 girls under the age of 15 are currently at risk.

 

These figures, however, may be only the tip of the iceberg. A 2011 Department of Health policy paper warns that “it is possible that, due to population growth and immigration from practicing countries…FGM is significantly more prevalent than … (READ THE REST – By Soeren Kern; Gatestone Institute; 5/9/13 5:00 am)

Here is More evidence that she stayed silent while this atrocity that she could have at least spoke out against did nothing about because she did not want to lose the vote of the Muslim society when running for President in 2016 and this means she will choose Personal Power over Societies’ Rights!!!

 

This is where the Freedom Seeking Muslims need a Fighter that can stand up and say HEY You people need to have a safe place to be free from these radicals who are abusing the faith of Islam to dominate and control you. And the USA is not going to be perverted with Political Correction as the threat to this Right to be FREE from this Abuse, and Hilary Clinton has failed at this Miserably!!!!

In Great Britain, young white girls are being drugged, gang-raped, and tortured by Muslim men. These brutal attacks are occurring so frequently and in so many cities, it would be positively irrational not to look for a connection. So, why are Muslim rape-gangs targeting young British girls and treating them as if they’re worthless? Perhaps the answers are in the Qur’an.

Nawaz Sharif 2- PM Pakistan

Nawaz Sharif – Prime Minister Pakistan

 

Here is an important editorial about the plight of Pakistani minorities and Christians in particular. That picture is not a rosy one. Shamim sent this to me a while ago but a recent move has me a bit behind in monitoring my emails. Due to an assumption of a lack of awareness of Pakistani politics and religious affairs I will link to some of organizations and people Shamim writes about.

Use Public Office to Protect Christians’ Rights

Christian Minorities in Pakistan

 

By Shamim Masih

Sent: June 16, 2013 3:54 AM

 

ISLAMABAD – The peace interventions ratio in Pakistan is always disproportional in the supply and demand. Pakistani society is gradually dipping into disharmony and going awry as demand increases and supply is less than its required level.  Pakistan is unable to achieve its desired status in the comity of nations despite having good natural and human resources; the reason is that there is injustice at the heart of all its systems and levels.

 

Pakistani Christians appear to have thrown some of their political support to Nawaz Sharif in the May 11 election, although they have reason to be wary of his return to power. During the campaign Nawaz Sharif promised that his party would give equal rights to minorities, including Christians. The PML-N even took the unusual step of thanking minority voters for their support. There could be unbelievable positive change for the Christians because the way Shahbaz Sharif rehabilitated Christian’s families of Joseph Colony, which was attacked by Muslim protesters in March this year, and have changed Christians’ view about Sharif’s party. If so, the PML-N will have to overcome a history that Christians find worrisome.

 

The Taliban, in turn, have close connections with Islamic militant organizations, including Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan– SSP, a banned terrorist organization, which has been targeting minority-Muslim Ahmedis and Shias, as well as Christians. The SSP still operates in Punjab province under a new name, Ahle Sunnat wal Jamaat, which reportedly has struck a bargain with Sharif’s party for some of the PML-N seats in the Punjab provincial government.

 

During the time in power in the 1990 – 93, the PML-N included the fundamentalist Islamic group Jamat-e-Islami in its coalition government. We have experienced that PML-N tried to bring Islamic laws in the country in its last ruling tenure. The majority of Christians are not optimistic about Sharif’s government because of their religious approach and close linkages with fundamentalist groups, said Sajid Ishaq, central President PTI, minorities’ wing.

 

The PML-N history of ruling over Punjab province is marked by several episodes of anti-Christian violence. The village Shantinagar, 1997, seven Christians were burned alive in Gojra, in 2009, attacked on Christians in Khokharki, Gujranwala in 2011 and most recent riots in Joseph Colony in 2013.

 

Albert David, Chairman Pakistan United Christian Movement, whilst commenting on the current situation said that the mandate given to PML- N is an opportunity for the government to bridge the widening gap between the state and Pakistani Non-Muslims, especially Christians. Devising of Standard Operating Procedures and ensuring that they followed religiously by the law enforcement agencies while dealing with any case of blasphemy could be one of the many confidence building measures (CBMs). This would ensure that the law is only applied to preserve its real spirit and sanctity and not to settle personal vendettas, which at times affects people from all faiths, including Muslims. Apart from this dealing with some of the other political issues including electoral system, census (to determine exact population of Christians), denationalization of Christian institutes and revitalization National Commission for Minorities could be some of the other CBMs.

 

Blasphemy Laws are widely criticized as its being misused by Muslims trying to settle scores and extort property, but are also popular with ordinary citizens. The Blasphemy Law is one of the major causes of the Christians’ troubles in Pakistan, especially in the Punjab province. Basharat Khokhar, who had been falsely charged with blasphemy in 2008, doesn’t expect Sharif to change or review it now.

 

“The religious-fanatics are responsible for the tense situation of Christians in Pakistan, and this nothing to do with the government,” said Tahir Naveed Chaudhry, Ex- MPA and social rights activist. “This is big challenge, if Mian Nawaz Sharif does not take any practical step in favor of Christians to protect them from extremists, the situation would be worse, he added.

 

If Mian Nawaz Sharif wanted to bring some changes for Pakistani Christians; here are few recommendations:

 

1-     Census: Christians are the biggest minority in the country, while Election Commission of Pakistan – ECP has declared them 2nd biggest minority. Christians are living in every corner of the country and Hindus majority living in Sindh province. So census can give you the exact figure.

 

2-     Election not Selection for the minorities: It is beseeched that PML-N, while honoring its commitment must include minorities in every walk of field and give dual voting rights to minorities so they may express their will and elect their representatives. Selections of minority candidates are totally at major parties disposal, which is not true representation. PML-N has been given a heavy mandate and religious minorities stood with Nawaz Sharif so he must draw parameters to bring their true representation in the parliament. If PML-N doesn’t take initiative it may mean that the government has certainly given clear message that minorities are still not emancipated and are the second grade citizen, which is disenchanting and disheartening.    

 

3-     Equal representation in the legislative body: The Christian community in particular has been targeted and internationally ostracized in the past. Even in the present government the representation of Christians in the National Assembly at reserved seats is not in accordance with their population. Christians who are in majority among minorities communities of Pakistan are reduced to 3 out of 10 reserved seats in NA. Such a representation of minority community on reserved seats at national level has caused serious apprehension among the Christian community who find it beyond any justification.

 

4-     Restoration of Ministry of Minority Affairs: It sounds good that PML-N declare Kamran Michael as Federal Minister for Ports and Shipping but he is not representing the religious minorities neither would be in position to solve their issues. The PPP government has accommodated them creating the Ministry for National Harmony, which is merged into Ministry for Religious Affairs. How would you think that a person having a long beard and a Muslim rigid mind set can represent other religious minorities? This may be a tough one for Nawaz Sharif, and I am pretty sure if he is really serious to show his love for religious minorities, as he mentioned during his election campaign. It is very important for all religions of Pakistan whether Sikhs, Hindus, Christians and Parsis to live in peace. Shia and Sunnis and other Muslim sects need to exist in harmony.

 

5-     Denationalize Christians’ institutions: The Missionary schools, Colleges and Hospitals were nationalized during ZA Bhutto regime. During the Parvez Musharraf government few institutions were denationalized so it would be a token of gesture to Christians, the denationalization of rest of the missionary schools, colleges and hospitals in Punjab province.

 

It is not worthy that if the democratic process in any state has to be checked than one must look at how their minorities are treated. No society can aspire to call itself democratic if it systematically excludes specific groups from the full protection of the laws, provision of equal rights and opportunities. 

 

Be Blessed,

WCJ Shining a Light on Obama, IRS and Muslim-American NGOs

Here is a video I found at The Western Center for Journalism (WCJ) exposing the IRS as an Obama tool against Conservatives and Counterjihad writers/organizations. YET the IRS did not hold up one single Left Wing organization and gave so-called American-Muslim groups with ties to Radical Islam and Islamic Terrorism a path to Charity status within the U.S. tax code.

Pastor Bob Roberts Embraces Radical Islam for his Church


Bob Roberts - Texas Pastor supporting Radical Islam 2

John R. Houk

© June 13, 2013

 

Ever heard of Pastor Bob Roberts of Northwood Church of Keller, TX? Well I had not because I avoid reading circles of people that I am certain I will have a low opinion. Pastor Roberts hangs around a group of Evangelical leaders that tend to water down the Christian faith particularly the orthodox (for clarity – I am not writing of Eastern Orthodoxy) teachings of Biblical theology in which all divisions within Christianity have long agreed upon up until at least the 20th century.

 

So what do I consider Christian orthodoxy acceptable to all Christians?

 

Jesus Christ was born in the flesh from the Virgin Mary and the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God before His Virgin Birth as a man. So Jesus is both God and the Son of God. Jesus was crucified and died on the Cross to pay the debt of Adam’s sin. The Resurrection of Jesus in a flesh body Redeemed all of humanity that believe Jesus is the Son of God arisen in the flesh now glorified sitting at the Right Hand of the Father with the Promise of returning to Redeem the rest of Earth from the curse of Adam’s Fall. Now there is a lot more that I believe in the Ministry and Redemptive act of Jesus, but this is where Christians begin to diverge in their theology.

 

I can safely say that Catholics, Eastern Orthodox Believers and Protestants agree on the essentials of the articles of Faith which I just wrote. Even the Coptic Church – the largest Christian Church stuck under Islamic Supremacism – agrees with the above paragraph with a minor disagreement of the nature of Christ (a disagreement that was considered huge between Eastern [Greek] Orthodox and Copts in the days that Muslims conquered Egypt).

 

Pastor Bob Roberts has misapplied the Love of Christ to mean to fellowship with Muslims as brothers. We can agree that God so loved the world that He gave His only Son to Redeem all humanity. We can all agree that Jesus said to love your neighbor as yourself and the New Testament Epistles elaborate on this Golden Rule by calling Christians to honor all men (21st century political correctness: all men and women or all people). This would include people who are not Christians. Pastor Roberts takes this “honor all men” to the level of let’s fellowship as brothers with those that hate Christians and Jews; viz. Muslims.

 

Muslims that strive to live a harmonious life under their Allah might act on the thoughts that Islam is peace and that there is no compulsion of religion in Islam toward non-Muslims; however that is very divergent from their holy writings in the Quran and Hadith. In the Quran the Muslim doctrine of Abrogation allows Muslims to focus on the Quranic Suras that tell the Muslims to enslave non-Muslims under a life 2nd class domination under Islamic Supremacism (dhimmitude) or kill Christians and Jews for not submitting or converting.

 

You see the Quran has NO Golden Rule equivalent to the Biblical Golden Rule. The Quran is conquer, enslave or kill. The Bible is share the Good News of Jesus Christ so people can choose willingly to be Redeemed now or face damnation in the NEXT Life. The difference between Quran commands and Biblical New Testament commands are HUGE.

 

Muslims are either lying or ignorant of their own Quranic theology if they tell you this a non-Muslim deception. In Islamic theology the concept of duality actually allows for a Muslim to follow the peace and love Suras above the violent Suras that abrogate peace and love. The Islamic theology of duality: abrogated and non-abrogated Suras are both valid depending on the circumstance chosen by an Islamic authority such as a Mullah or Cleric or Islamic leader rather secular or theological. In Islam secular and theology are merged as one authority in advancing Jihad.

 

Muslims tell Westerners of the so-called Greater Jihad which is that internal struggle to live submitted to Allah. The historical reality is the so-called Lesser Jihad – Conversion by Conquest and humiliation – is the primary fashion that Islam spread throughout the Middle East, North Africa, India and parts of Europe. AND the so-called Lesser Jihad is what the modern purist Muslims desire to use to establish a modern Caliphate. These purist Muslims are identified to we Westerners as Radical Islam or Islamism today. The major concern should be for Westerners and Americans in particular is that Radical Islam can be identified as the Muslim Brotherhood network spread from Egypt and the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia. There are other regions of the world that export their Radical Islam toward the West but they don’t quite have financial-political clout of the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Wahhabis.

 

Pastor Bob Roberts is not extending a hand of Christian friendship to Muslims that Multiculturalists identify as Moderate Islam that place more stock in the Islam is Peace portions of the Quran, rather Pastor Roberts are reaching out to Radical Islamic elements in the USA with direct linkage to the Muslim Brotherhood. If an American Muslim organization directly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood network or Saudi Wahhabi money they desire the destruction of American Constitutional law in which Religious Freedom and Free Speech is paramount. These Radical Muslim groups are also extremely anti-Semitic to the point that when they think no one is looking the Jew-Hatred oozes out calling for Jewish destruction.

 

Pastor Roberts has Church meeting giving Islam a Muslim moment in his Church which include speakers from the Islamic Society of North American (ISNA). ISNA seems to be networked by both the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Wahhabis.

 

Pastor Roberts is often heard using Muslim Brotherhood ideologue Yusuf al-Qaradawi in his build bridges with Islam thoughts:

 

“…one of the “key Islamic leaders” Roberts invokes is … Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a man who has praised Hitler, supports female genital mutilation, supported the fatwa calling for the assassination of writer Salman Rushdie and to top it all off, has called for a second Holocaust against the Jewish people!” (Snapshots a CAMERA blog; September 20, 2012 12:35 PM)

 

Pastor Roberts glories in knowing Professor John Esposito a man reputed as an expert in all thing Islam. Esposito refuses to condemn Radical Islam and blames Islamic terrorism as a pure response to American imperialistic colonialism. Esposito’s portrayal of Islam is idiotic denial of history and fans the hypocrisy that Islam is peace even while violence is globally widespread perpetrated by Muslims.

 

Esposito subscribes to the Edward Said school of thought, which holds that Middle Eastern attitudes toward Israel can never be understood from an “American colonialist perspective.” In other words, they should be viewed from the point of view of Israel’s alleged role as a base of American imperialism. Ignoring Hamas‘ program of creating an Islamic radical state to replace Israel – a genocidal agenda – Esposito has characterized the Palestinian terror group as a community-focused organization that, in addition to its violence, does a considerable amount of societal good via such productive activities as “honey [production], cheese-making, and home-based clothing manufacture.” He has likened Yasser Arafat’s calls for jihad to social initiatives for the launching of a “literacy campaign” or a “fight against AIDS.” He has called former professor Sami al-Arian, a terrorism-supporter with strong links to Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a “consummate professional.” (From John Esposito; Determine The Networks)

 

Pastor Roberts has spent time with Saudi Arabia’s former head of Intelligence Prince Turki-Al-Faisal. Pastor Roberts says this about the Saudi Prince:

 

He’s truly an exceptional man and a world leader par excellent!  I wish we had 1,000 men like him spread out across the world – this world would be a much better place.

 

As head of Saudi Arabia’s Intelligence Prince Turki al-Faisal had an amenable relationship with Osama bin Laden and Mohammed Omar the one-eyed Mullah that ruled Taliban controlled Afghanistan. This relationship was not hostile. Later the Prince had become the Saudi Ambassador to the USA. The enigma with that is he promotes Wahhabism on one side but typically of many Saudi Royal Family members also displays a Western veneer with his public actions in the West.

 

The Balfour Post ran a story mentioning the Radical Muslims I just mentioned and a few others. Read an excerpt below:

 

Pastor Bob Roberts. Jr. is known for his efforts to build-bridges with Muslims. He spoke at the “Christ at the Checkpoint” conference put together by Palestinian Christians at Bethlehem Bible College. So did Florida Pastor Joel C. Hunter, who has been negative attention for his association with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity. Hunter is also critical of “Christian Zionists.”

 

An article posted on Hunter’s website reports how the “Christ at the Checkpoint” audience, including students from Wheaton and Eastern Universities, “were moved by the testimony of Palestinian men and women who shared the pain and suffering they experience on a daily basis caused primarily by the continuing occupation.”

Pastor Roberts reacted to the anti-Islam Innocence of Muslims video by suggesting that governments crack down on its distribution. He said, “There is a ‘clear and present’ danger the U.S. courts have ruled in regard to freedom of speech—I think that has to extend globally.”

In January, NorthWood Church hosted Azhar Azeez, Vice President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator in a major terrorism-financing trial. Federal prosecutors labeled ISNA a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, a fact confirmed by the Brotherhood’s own secret documents.

In November, his church’s Global Faith Forum will bring the spotlight to his interfaith efforts and those involved in them. Event speakers include Rep. Kay Graner (R-TX), former South Carolina Governor David Beasley and Christianity Today editor Mark Galli, but they aren’t the main attractions.

The conference website’s home page proudly advertises Prince Turki al-Faisal, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.S. from 2005 to 2007, as a main speaker. Before that, he was the Saudi foreign intelligence chief from 1977 to 2001, making him a top figure in Saudi Arabia’s proliferation of Wahhabism around the world for over 20 years. He represented a Sharia-based government that persecutes Christians.

Faisal Bin Muammar was an advisor at the Saudi Royal Court and Secretary-General of the Riyadh-based King Abdul Aziz Center for National Dialogue.

Safi Kaskas is a co-founder of East West University in Chicago and a “strategy consultant for a number of business organizations in the USA and Saudi Arabia.” He is a member of the Association of Muslim Social Scientists. A 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo identifies AMSS as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.” The memo says its “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.” The AMSS is also closely linked to the International Institute of Islamic Thought.

Another main speaker is Professor John Esposito, one of the top non-Muslim supporters of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood network. He is a frequent guest speaker at their events and was a witness for the defense in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation.

The aforementioned Azhar Azeez is again speaking. He is the Vice President of ISNA and has been on its Executive Council since 2002. He is also the senior National Director of Islamic Relief USA, a charity linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Wadah Khanfar was the director-general of Al-Jazeera from 2006 to 2011. Al-Jazeera’s extremism is well-documented. The Arabic station even gives Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi a weekly show.

“Pseudo-Christian” Pastor From Texas Mega-Church Partners With the Muslim Brotherhood

 

Posted by Sharia Unveiled

By Ralph Mauro

Posted June 11, 2013

 

On June 9, the Clarion Project reported that the U.S. envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation will be speaking at an Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) regional conference, sharing the stage with at least three Islamists. But there are some other featured guests: ISNA’s interfaith allies, including Pastor Bob Roberts of NorthWood Church in Texas.

 

ISNA is identified in a 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memorandum as one of its fronts. The U.S. government also listed ISNA as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity when it designated the group an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas-financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation. The so-called “charity” was another U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity that, in the words of Judge Jorge Solis, “operated from within ISNA.” ISNA denies it has “ever been subject to the control of…the Muslim Brotherhood.”

 

ISNA’s South Central Conference will be held in Dallas on June 15. The event will feature an interfaith panel that includes its Community Outreach Director, Mohamed Elsanousi, who attended a Muslim Brotherhood-linked conference in Mauritania last year.

 

Other participants include Rabbi Joshua S. Taub of Temple Emanuel and Cristina Warner, the Campaign Director of the Shoulder-to-Shoulder Campaign, an ISNA-allied interfaith coalition. ISNA is so proud of Shoulder-to-Shoulder that its success was a top talking point of senior officials when they met with the Islamist Prime Minister of Turkey.

 

The most high-profile interfaith speaker at the ISNA regional conference is Pastor Bob Roberts of NorthWood Church, a critic of “Christian Zionists.” As reported last month, Pastor Roberts’ NorthWood Church is holding its own Islamist-stocked interfaith event called the Global Faith Forum in November. Pastor Roberts’ speakers include ISNA officials, former senior Saudi officials and a former director-general of Al-Jazeera.

 

The Clarion Project’s original article on the event provides insight into some of the fellow speakers of Pastor Roberts, Rabbi Taub and Cristina Warner.

 

The keynote speaker is Dr. Jamal Badawi, who will also be on panels about Sharia and having a healthy family. His record includes praise for Hamas, “combative jihad,” and justifying the physical disciplining of wives (or, as he says, “a gentle tap on the body” for disobedience). His name also appears in a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood phonebook from 1992 and he hangs out with Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi. The radicalism of his resume is strong enough to prompt counter-terrorism expert Patrick Poole to ask, “Why is Jamal Badawi Still Allowed into the United States?”

 

ISNA official Yusuf Ziya Kavakci will be handling the opening remarks, leading a prayer and joining Badawi for the panel on Sharia. He used to lead a mosque that an article in 1999 said “is considered to be one of the most active centers of Hamas activity in the United States[.]” The mosque was linked to the Holy Land Foundation, the aforementioned U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity that was housed by ISNA and shut down for financing Hamas.

 

The notorious Imam Siraj Wahhaj is listed as an invited speaker at the event. His radicalism is unquestionable. He has preached that “America is the most wicked government on the face of the planet Earth.” America, he told his audience, is a “garbage can” that he prays “crumbles.” Unlike some Islamists, he doesn’t hide his desire for Sharia Law in America.

 

“If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate. If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir and give allegiance to him. Take my word, if eight million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us,” he said.

 

The book Muslim Mafia quotes Wahhaj even condoning violence. “We don’t need to arm the people with 9mms and Uzis. You need to arm them with righteousness first. And once you arm them with righteousness first, then you can arm them,” he said, as well as “I will never tell people, ‘Don’t be violent.’ That’s not the Islamic way.”

 

Wahhaj’s rhetoric lines right up with the private words of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. The 1991 memorandum that identified ISNA as one of its fronts said its “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.”

 

Page 21 of the document states: “[W]e must possess a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions’, the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’” That is the context that ISNA’s interfaith alliances need to be put in.

 

After my last article on NorthWood Church was published, a reader emailed me to say that he posted it to the Facebook page of the church and the personal page of Pastor Roberts. It didn’t take long for it to be deleted. Ignorance is no longer an excuse.

How to Keep Your Info Private (Even From the NSA)


Uncle Sam- who says govt doesn't listen toon

 

The NSA is spying unconstitutionally against Americans! I am outraged, are you? There are tech measures to take to try an end run around NSA snooping until either Congress or Supreme Court set things Constitutionally right.

 

The article I read concerning these counter measures claims the terrorists of the world already know them. That makes sense to me; however I am guessing in this age of super-secret technology that the NSA has counter measures for the counter measures.

 

Anyway if you wish to throw a monkey wrench into the Big Brother U.S. government spying on you unconstitutionally read the article and see what you can do. I myself have little to hide and so I am not inclined to find the funds to have to fool my government about my private life. On the other hand if Big Brother starts to politically persecute little insignificant me who is not a mover and shaker, then I might change my mind and make greater efforts to guard my privacy against Big Brother.

How to Keep Your Info Private (Even From the NSA)

 

By Dan Schointuch

Thwarting the efforts of a billion-dollar super-secret government spy agency — or anyone else who wants access to your personal information — is not that difficult.

 

With the recent revelations that the NSA and other agencies have been tapping into corporate streams of data that can provide them with massive amounts of private information about U.S. citizens, now is a good time to start thinking about how best to keep your private information private.

 

Not a big deal, you say? Well, whether you’re concerned about the government digging through your personal data or not, you should be concerned about protecting your privacy. According to the Department of Justice’s most recent National Crime Victimization Survey, “In 2010, 7 percent of households in the United States, or about 8.6 million households, had at least one member age 12 or older who experienced one or more types of identity theft victimization.” That’s almost one in 10, with 76 percent of them experiencing direct financial loss as a result.

 

Imagine that statistic was for bank robberies or home break-ins. If 1 in 10 Americans had their bank accounts emptied or their home broken into, we’d all be living in fear. And yet, that’s happening every year to our personal information. Making that information harder for someone else to obtain is Step One in preventing identity theft.

 

And not all identity theft is of the “crime” variety. There’s a famous quote that I’m paraphrasing: “If you’re using a website and you can’t figure out what they’re selling, you’re what they’re selling.”

 

Many corporations make a living off of selling or processing your personal habits and preferences for marketers, retailers and government agencies, practically without your knowledge. Since you’re not being paid for this information, and (unless you speak legalese and love spending your afternoons reading “Terms and Conditions”) you’re not aware that it’s being taken and used in this fashion, I’d consider it “theft.” But since the government has yet to agree with me, the best way to prevent yourself being used in this fashion is to get a little more serious about your privacy.

 

In this article, we’ll focus on the things the NSA has reportedly been looking at. It’s reasonable to assume that if you can stop them from taking a peek at your private information, you’ll have stopped hackers and others, too. Fortunately, thwarting the efforts of a billion-dollar super-secret government spy agency is not that difficult. You just need to know which services to turn to.

 

It’s important to note that everything in this article is public knowledge. If you’re worried about terrorists reading it and figuring out how to thwart our government’s best efforts at finding them, don’t be. The terrorists already know this stuff. You, however, might not

.

1. Your phone

 

If you’re looking to keep SMS messages secure and you have an iPhone, there’s a free app called Wickr that can help. The app uses end-to-end encryption without storing the keys for decryption on its servers. What that means is that when you send a message to someone else using Wickr, nothing you say can be read by anyone at Wickr. Because of that, there’s no stream of plain text messages going back and forth that the NSA or anyone else can siphon.

 

To make voice calls, the easiest option is Silent Circle, but you’re going to have to pay for the privilege — $20 to $29 per month to call other Silent Circle users, with an optional add-on to safeguard calls to everyone else. Joining Silent Circle also gets you secure chat, email and video calling.

 

If you’re an Android user, you have a few more options than iPhone users do. For text messages, there’s Gibberbot. Like Wickr, Gibberbot is free and promises more secure messaging.

 

And for calls, check out RedPhone. When calling someone who also has RedPhone, everything you say is encrypted, making it much more difficult for someone to listen in. Plus, it’s free and uses your data connection, not your cellular voice. So not only will your calls be secure, you won’t have to pay for the minutes either.

 

More Android apps to check out:

 

·         TextSecure (chat).

 

·         Ostel (voice — in beta, but looks promising).

 

·         Kryptos (chat).

 

2. Your Dropbox

 

According to documents released by The Guardian and The Washington Post, Dropbox is “coming soon” to the NSA’s spy program. If that were to happen, documents, tax records or other private information in your Dropbox folder could be subject to government monitoring. Add to that Dropbox suffering security breaches in the past, and they’re just not safe enough for me. The solution? SpiderOak.

 

SpiderOak is just like Dropbox — there’s a folder, you put stuff in it, that folder syncs between computers and devices — but with one important difference: good encryption. Everything you put in your SpiderOak Hive (that’s what they call their syncing folder) is first encrypted on your computer using your password, then sent to the SpiderOak servers.

 

This means that even SpiderOak can’t read your data without your password; it looks like gibberish. So if someone (the NSA, a foreign government, or a hacker in Latvia) manages to get into SpiderOak’s servers, they won’t be able to see what you’ve stored there without breaking one of the world’s most advanced encryption algorithms (one the NSA trusts to secure its own data).

 

But SpiderOak can also back up any file or folder on your computer, sync any file or folder on your computer, and share any file or folder on your computer. This makes it a great one-stop-shop for all your syncing, sharing and backup needs.

 

There’s a free plan that offers 2 GB of data, plenty for storing tax returns, scans of important documents, photos, small videos, and other data that you would prefer was stored securely. If you need more space, they offer it for a fee. Prices are almost identical to Dropbox, starting at $10 for 100 GB.

 

3. Your social network

 

Unfortunately, there’s no good option here. You join social networks because you want to share things with others, or connect with people you know and see what they’re sharing. Typically, this includes things that you might use as password reset reminders on other sites: a pet’s name, your mother’s name, high school you attended, favorite sports team, etc. That means that if a hacker or the NSA can gain access to your social media profile (either directly with your password, or indirectly by pretending to be someone you know and friending you), they can probably find enough information to gain access to your accounts on other sites, as well.

 

While there are a few start-up social networks that offer more advanced encryption of your data, they’re complicated to install, and even more difficult to get everyone you know using them, too. For now, the best option is to assume that anything you post on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, etc., will eventually be read by everyone in the world. That way, it won’t matter much if someone gets access to your data, be that a government agency, a jilted ex-girlfriend, or simply a prospective or current employer.

 

To share more securely, use something like SpiderOak or a secure messaging program to share directly with those you trust.

 

4. Your credit cards

 

Yes, the NSA is probably looking at credit card transactions, too. So how do you get around exposing your purchase history? “I already know this; the answer is to use cash,” you’re probably thinking. But how do you shop online without using a credit card?

 

The answer, sort of, is Bitcoin. It’s a virtual currency (you give or receive Bitcoins, which are worth something in dollars), but if used correctly, it can provide almost complete anonymity when shopping online. And since you’re not typing your credit card information into a site that may or may not keep that data secure, there’s no risk that your account will be stolen by someone hacking the site.

 

The only catch is that there aren’t a lot of places that accept Bitcoins. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find ones that do. But if the currency takes off, it could become the “cash” of the Internet.

 

A more doable option? Buy prepaid gift cards from Visa, MasterCard or American Express with cash. Then use those to shop online. You’ll probably have to pay a few dollars extra when buying the card, but afterward you’ll be able to shop anywhere those cards are accepted without having the purchase data and your identification forwarded to a government agency. If the site where you used the card is ever hacked, you’ve got nothing to worry; by that time you’ll probably have already used the balance on the card and moved on to one with a different number.

 

5. Your Web history

 

Everything you search for on Google, and a good deal of your browsing activity, can also be snooped on by the NSA, according to news reports. The problem is your IP address. It’s the sequence of numbers that identifies your computer on the Internet, and can be traced back to you through your ISP (Internet service provider).

 

The answer? A virtual private network, or VPN. A VPN will sit between you and the websites you visit, encrypting and relaying information back and forth. So when you do a search on Google, the IP address Google records as having performed the search is that of the VPN, not you. Find a good VPN, one that’s easy to use, with a good price, limited or no logging of your activity and fast speed, and you’ll be much harder to track online. Just make sure you sign out of your Google, Facebook, and Twitter accounts before connecting to the VPN, or use your web browser’s private mode.

 

Here’s a list of VPNs to consider. If you just want me to pick one for you, check out IPVanish.com. They have software that makes them especially easy to use, can be set up on your computer, tablet or smartphone, have servers all over the world that you can connect to, and cost $10 for unlimited use (and it’s even cheaper if you pay for a year in advance).

 

Bonus: Some VPNs accept Bitcoin as payment, making for the ultimate in anonymous Web browsing. Not even the VPN has to know who you are.

While using a VPN at home is something you might consider to protect your privacy from the NSA, using a VPN at a public Wi-Fi hot spot or hotel network should be mandatory. Often, those networks are unsecured and almost everything you do can be “sniffed” out of the air by someone else connected to the same network. A VPN would protect you.

 

6. Your everything else

 

While I’ve tried to hit all the major areas you might want to protect, this is by no means a comprehensive list of everything you can do to keep your private information safe and secure. Entire websites could be devoted to the topic.

 

Websites like Security In-A-Box. They’ll teach you everything from creating good passwords and protecting your computer from hackers to remaining anonymous online and bypassing censorship. And it’s free. If you’re interested in protecting your data in this brave new world, I encourage you to check it out.

I Consider Snowden a Hero-Whistleblower – For Now


Edward Snowden with quote on NSA

John R. Houk

© June 10, 2013

 

I have been a fan of the Patriot Act since its inception because of my disgust of Islamic terrorists in this post-9/11 era. I’m all for the quick search warrants from the FISA courts as managed through the Patriot Act to get terrorists before a plan is executed to murder Americans just because they are Americans.

 

Now that it has become apparent the Obama Administration has highly politicized the Executive Branch to the point that opponents of Obama’s agenda are being intimidated. Scandals such as the IRS, Benghazigate – information was purposefully warped including bad decisions on a rescue based on Obama reelection politics and secret policy decisions that Obama opponents would definitely oppose, the Fast and Furious scandal is another indication of stupid policy execution that cost lives rather than protect lives and now thanks to a whistleblower We the People are aware that the National Security Agency – SA HERE and HERE (NSA) snoops on ALL Americans via phone and Internet ending American’ treasured right of privacy from a Big Brother government (Conspiracy King David Icke has put together an in your face series of link summaries about the NSA and snooping).

 

Proponents of the NSA’s snooping on Americans say the Patriot gives that secret agency the authority to invade ALL privacy to catch terrorists. Was that what the Patriot Act designed to do? I thought the Patriot Act was designed at best to snoop on potential terrorist activity on a foreign and domestic basis? Are ALL Americans potential terrorists under the Patriot Act?

 

As long as the Patriot Act has a narrow agenda domestically I do not have a problem with it. On the other hand if the Patriot Act casts a wide net over every single American when the agenda should just be limited potential terrorists. Casting a wide net makes every single American a potential terrorists whether that person is Left, Center or Right. This makes the Patriot Act a political tool by whoever is in power in the White House.

 

Since I am considerably slanted toward the Right my two-cents is that the NSA scandal should be the last straw of credibility for the Obama Administration. The President that won his Office originally in 2008 on part of a platform that promised a transparent government is a liar. Obama is definitely not transparent. When Obama promised transparency the implication was that President Bush was not transparent to the American people. If Bush was not transparent by successfully protecting Americans from experiencing another 9/11-style attack, what does that mean about Obama’s transparency with scandal after scandal beginning with the moronic Foreign Policy of apologizing for America’s existence followed by dismantling Bush’s agreement with Poland to set-up an umbrella anti-missile system designed for Iran but struck fear in Russia? Forgive me if I forget a few scandals. Then Obama refused to reinforce the U.S. southern border with Mexico. Not only did this allow the flow illegal aliens who use American social services undeservedly but it also meant Mexican drug cartels had free access to American communities which also means Islamic terrorists that have partnered with drug cartels have free access. And of course there was Fast and Furious which the brilliant Obama Administration armed drug cartels under the dopey concept of tracking weapons – oops, Border Agents were killed by that transaction. Then the scandal dominoes began to fall quicker. Benghazigate is still in the cover-up stage. The Obama Administration targeting political opponents via the IRS is still in cover-up phase. AND of course there will be some cover-up goings-on about the NSA spying on Americans just because they believe they can.

 

Now I could change my mind on Edward Snowden as a hero whistleblower. What could change my mind? If Snowden is proven to have released classified information to harm the USA and/or to harm American troops and harm espionage activities abroad that typically benefit American National Interests then Snowden needs to be prosecuted as a traitor. For example Bradley Manning released classified information to Wikileaks that broadcast secret diplomatic cables from Embassies back to Washington. Those cables are secret because the writers of those cables need candor that might prove embarrassing if a foreign nation – especially and ally – discovers the classified content. Also thanks to Manning military personal have been compromised by exposing tactics that are used to defeat the enemy in battle. That makes Manning a traitor. If Snowden’s whistleblowing is in the same Manning-light then he is a traitor. HOWEVER, if Snowden’s whistleblowing was under the motivation to let Americans know their Constitutional Rights were being abused by the U.S. Government then Snowden is a hero and should be provided whistleblower immunity. If whistleblower immunity leads to the prosecution of those responsible who tried to hide behind the Patriot Act to break Constitutional rule of law then Edward Snowden should be given a Medal.

Manning 2.0? Former NSA consultant behind massive US surveillance leak

 

Published time: June 09, 2013 23:15
Edited time: June 10, 2013 19:09

RT.com

 

The source behind the leak of the top-secret NSA surveillance program – one of the most significant leaks in US history – has been revealed. A 29-year-old former CIA contractor Edward Snowden has fled to Hong Kong to avoid the fate of Bradley Manning.

 

Follow RT’s LIVE UPDATES on NSA leak fallout

 

The former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, had asked the Guardian to reveal his identity and had never planned on hiding.

 

“I have no intention of hiding who I am because I know I have done nothing wrong,” he said in an interview.

 

Snowden predicts that the government will launch an investigation against him, however it was “a matter of principle” for him because he believes that the people should know how the government intrudes into their privacy. According to Snowden he acted out of a desire to protect “basic liberties” and to “send a message to government that people will not be intimidated.”

 

“I can’t in good conscience allow the US government to destroy privacy, internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they’re secretly building,” said the whistleblower.

 

Snowden leaked top-secret documents to The Guardian that included the existence of a US National Security Agency’s extensive spying program called PRISM (SlantRight Editor: Wikipedia on PRISM). The program was designed to collect information about digital communications allowing real-time online surveillance of US citizens.

 

According to the leaked information it gives “direct access” to files from the servers of major internet companies including Google and Facebook. The spying program was allegedly targeted to identify “folks who might engage in terrorism,” according to US president Barack Obama, who noted that American citizens  should be prepared to trade some of their freedoms for more safety.

 

Snowden said he is willingly sacrificing his very comfortable life with a family he loves and a stable career with a salary of around $200,000. “My sole motive is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them.”

 

A former MI5 agent Annie Machon believes that Snowden will be the first of a series of modern whistleblowers who learnt from the terrible tragedy of the Bradley Manning case.

 

“The way he has run the whole exposure and disclosure of the crimes of the NSA and what they are doing against the American people and the rest of the world people has been very sophisticated. And I take heart from that. The fact that he has fled the USA, he is now in Hong Kong. The fact that he has been working with journalists of Glenn Greenwald’s caliber,” Machon told RT. “I think it’s been very, very well done. I would call this Whistleblowing 2.0.”

 

The revelation of the whistleblowers identity comes after NSA filed a leak investigation report on Sunday to the Justice Department for it to launch a criminal case into the breach of security. The leaks also come amid US Army Private Bradley Manning’s trial on charges of transmitting classified materials connected with US military operations abroad to the WikiLeaks website. The Obama administration has aggressively pursued whistleblowers and Snowden expects the government to pursue him, however he states that he “is not afraid , because this is the choice I’ve made.” 

 

Whistleblower’s asylum of choice?

 

Until three weeks ago Snowden worked in a NSA office in Hawaii. There he made final preparations, copied the final set of documents he planned to leak and on May 20 boarded a flight to Hong Kong. At work he explained that he needed time off for treatment for epilepsy, a condition he was diagnosed with last year.

 

Snowden told the paper that he chose Hong Kong because it is the place that could and would “resist the dictates of the US government” and the city has “a spirited commitment to free speech and the right of political dissent.”

 

He has been living in a hotel ever since and only left the room about three times during his entire stay as he is afraid of being spied on.

 

“I could be rendered by the CIA. I could have people come after me. Or any of the third-party partners. They work closely with a number of other nations. Or they could pay off the Triads. Any of their agents or assets,” he said. “We have got a CIA station just up the road – the consulate here in Hong Kong – and I am sure they are going to be busy for the next week.”

 

“And that is a concern I will live with for the rest of my life, however long that happens to be.”

 

Snowden anticipates that he will be charged with breaking the Espionage Act and helping the enemies, “but that can be used against anyone who points out how massive and invasive the system has become” the whistleblower notes.

 

‘Most CIA secrets are about people, not machines or systems’

Snowden was discharged from the army after a training accident, and got a job as a security guard at the NSA facility at the University of Maryland in College Park. His next role was with the CIA on IT security. In 2007 he was stationed in Geneva, Switzerland, where he maintained computer network security for the CIA.

 

“Much of what I saw in Geneva really disillusioned me about how my government functions and what its impact is in the world,” he told The Guardian. “I realized that I was part of something that was doing far more harm than good.”

 

Snowden said that in Switzerland the idea of leaking government information first came to mind, however he hoped that the election of Barack Obama in 2008 would reform the government’s policy.

 

“Most of the secrets the CIA has are about people, not machines and systems, so I didn’t feel comfortable with disclosures that I thought could endanger anyone.”

 

Within the next three years he came to the conclusion that the NSA’s surveillance would soon, ultimately, pose an “existential threat to democracy.” He chose to blow the whistle in spite of the risks involved.

 

“I don’t  want to live in a world where there’s no privacy and therefore no room for intellectual exploration and creativity” the whistleblower told the paper.

 

“That is not something I am willing to support or live under.”

According to Clemons, four men sitting next to him at the airport “were loud. Almost bragging” while discussing an intelligence conference they had just attended hosted by the Intelligence and National Security Alliance.

 

Clemens said he was unsure of the men’s identities or which agency they worked for, and told the Huffington Post that one of them was wearing “a white knit national counter-terrorism center shirt.” Clemons also recorded part of their conversation and snapped some photos, hoping that “people in that bz will know them.”

“But bad quality,” he noted about the quality of the photos. “Was a shock to me and wasn’t prepared,” he wrote on Twitter. 

 

Clemons’ post immediately went viral, and his Twitter account was flooded with responses.

 

While some users were anxious to learn more details and hear the conversation, others lashed out at the blogger, saying he should have verified the information before posting it.

Clemons said his view on the “disappear” part was that the statement was one of “bravado” and a “joke” – but a very “disturbing” one. He said he felt obligated to make it public because he thought the speakers were senior intelligence officers.

 

It was a “disconcerting set of comments offered in public,” Clemons explained.

@AlwaysThinkHow @msnbcDisrupt I think you ask legitimate question. I posted as these were senior intel folks joking about disappearances (Ibid)

 

The blogger judged the speakers’ profession from the “context” of their conversation, as well as from the shirt one of them was wearing.

 

Clemons is now working on an article detailing the conversation, but he said he will not publish it or the recording until he identifies the speakers and offers them a “fair chance to clarify” their remarks.

Snowden on tweet: ‘I am a spy and that is how they talk’

 

The source behind the revelation of the top-secret NSA surveillance program, dubbed one of the most significant intelligence leaks in US history, was uncovered late last week. Snowden, a former CIA technical contractor and NSA consultant, had asked the Guardian to reveal his identity. He has fled to Hong Kong in a bid to escape retaliation by the US.

“The NSA has built an infrastructure that allows it to intercept almost everything. With this capability, the vast majority of human communications are automatically ingested without targeting. If I wanted to see your emails or your wife’s phone, all I have to do is use intercepts. I can get your emails, passwords, phone records, credit cards,” Snowden told the Guardian.

When asked for his reaction to the alleged comments that reporter Glenn Greenwald and the 29-year-old leaker himself should be “disappeared,” Snowden told the newspaper: “Someone responding to the story said ‘real spies do not speak like that.’ Well, I am a spy and that is how they talk. Whenever we had a debate in the office on how to handle crimes, they do not defend due process – they defend decisive action. They say it is better to kick someone out of a plane than let these people have a day in court. It is an authoritarian mindset in general.”

Snowden earlier explained that he had sacrificed his life and $200,000-a-year career out of his desire to protect “basic liberties” in order to “send a message to government that people will not be intimidated.”

The whistleblower leaked top-secret documents that revealed the existence of the US National Security Agency’s extensive Internet spying program PRISM, which records digital communications and allows for real-time online surveillance of US citizens. PRISM apparently gives US intelligence agencies direct access to files stored on the servers of major Internet companies – including Google and Facebook – in order to identify and target potential terror suspects.

Humor-gate in Manchester


Muslims Walking on U.S. Flag

I follow Bill Warner’s blog Political Islam. Just as the blog’s name suggests theme is exposing Islam as a religion that is more ideologically political than it is theologically religious. It is this reality that Muslim Clerics and Mullahs do not want you the kafir (Islam for non-Muslim) to know about. This is especially the case in America in our First Amendment protects Religious Freedom. If Americans ever caught on that Islam is a basically a political ideology of Supremacist Hegemonic Domination, Muslims that are purist (aka Radical Islam or Islamist or Salafist) realize that American voters would begin voting for Congressmen and Senators to protect the Constitution from Political Islam.

 

Consider this an introduction to Bill Warner’s post “Humor-gate in Manchester”.

Humor-gate in Manchester

Political Islam

 

On June 4 the FBI and DOJ (Department of Justice) appeared at a meeting called by AMAC (American Muslim Advisory Council — Muslim Brotherhood) in Manchester, TN. The meeting was due to a joke posted by a Coffee County Commissioner on Face Book. The DOJ Assistant Attorney General said in a newspaper interview that the joke might be classified as hate speech and a crime. Below is a political leaflet handed out to the over a thousand attendees at the meeting. (A note: there are only 10,000 people who live in Manchester, TN)

This event which uses the full Federal powers of the corrupt Department of Justice to suppress free speech and shape domestic politics will not be the last. The DOJ is now a full partner with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Humor-gate, Free Speech Intimidation in Manchester TN

 

Why has Obama shaped law enforcement into agencies of intimidation of our political speech? It all starts with the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) in the UN with Resolution 16/18 that criminalizes any criticism of Islam since it blasphemes Islam. Blasphemy punishment is pure Sharia law. There is NO free speech in Islam, since it does not allow any criticism of Islam. Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, worked for 3 days in NY with the OIC to find a way to accommodate Islamic blasphemy and slander laws in America. Tonight is the fruit of that labor.

Government agencies are trained about Islam according to Muslim Brotherhood standards. They are taught that Islam is a religion and that Muslims are just like everybody else. It is forbidden to discuss Islam as a political system. Language is controlled and jihad doctrine cannot be used in the analysis of Islamic violence.

Look at tonight’s event. The AMAC (American Muslim Advisory Council) is a political group and this meeting is political, yet the government gives all Islamic politics the cover of religion. Religious Islam disguises political Islam and tries to enforce Sharia law.

You will be told tonight that the problem with Muslims in America is how they are victims of bigoted oppression. Victimhood is a feature of Islam. Mohammed was portrayed as a victim, without any fault. Therefore, Islam is without fault and Muslims are victims. As an example, on 9/11 Muslims were the real victims, because it made some Americans criticize Muslims and Islam.

The movie shown here tonight, Welcome to Shelbyville, is pure propaganda. Why don’t they show the fact-based film, Losing Our Sons? According to our government, a joke about Muslims is a more serious problem than Carlos Bledsoe (Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad) attempting to assassinate a rabbi here in Tennessee and his murder of our military in Arkansas. Did you know that there are no jokes about Mohammed in 1400 years? Political humor such as the Mohammed cartoons can result in riots and death. In America we can tell jokes such as Jesus, Tiger Woods and Moses are playing golf…. But, can we tell a joke about Mohammed and Aisha playing golf…? Not if it offends Muslims.

When Coffee County Commissioner Barry West posted his political satire on Face Book he found out that Islam never changes. Humor about anything Islamic has been forbidden by Sharia law for 1400 years, and it will not be tolerated now. The dhimmis (Kafirs, non-Muslims, who serve Islam) rush forward to placate a humorless Islam. This is all about the Islamists making a molehill out of a mountain.

This night is an example of how Obama’s Federal government is suppressing critical thought and forcing us to submit to an Orwellian authority. Facts are bigotry. Truth is hate.

Thank GOD Folsom ST East 2013 Canceled


Sodom & Gomorrah Tries Rape Angels

John R. Houk

© May 28, 2013

 

The homosexual debauchery that has taken place for sixteen years was canceled this year due to road construction. Evidently the area for the annual Folsom Street East outdoor festival in which homosexuals gather together to participate with lewd vendors and homosexual sex acts including the leathers that homosexuals flaunt in their so-called pride efforts to be free to do whatever they want even though it is horrifically immoral was canceled because complaints were forthcoming from last year’s events. In recent years there has been a code of conduct which can read in this photo from 2010 which included no public sex acts; however with no real accountability that conduct policy was enforced very loosely:

 

• No public sexual activity

• No complete public nudity

• No exposure of genitals

• Alcohol is restricted to designated areas only, consumed by adults 21+

• Adequate space must be cleared and prior consent must be given by all participants in any demo or “scene.”

• No demo or “scene” involving blood or other fluids will be permitted, even with consent.

Our contact also indicated that, although these limits represented NYC statutes, they were never enforced in the past. (From Folsom Street East Perversion Light 2010; By John R. Houk; SlantRight 2.0; 6/25/2010)

 

Here is a link of the debauchery of Folsom Street East 2012 by a pro-homosexual website – Warning Disturbing: http://atomische.com/series/FolsomStreetEast2012

 

Another Warning – Here are a couple of the explicit photos from the above link:

Now tell me this is not disgusting, right?!

 

The thing about finding out about the canceling of Folsom Street East 2013 is that luxury seems to be disenchanted with public homosexuality. The non-profit organization that is Folsom Street East simply tells us the cancellation is due to road construction as that is a mere glitch of the last sixteen years. The reality is luxurious buildings that are trendy hotels, restaurants and condos are encroaching on the fringe homosexual district of Manhattan. The sad thing most of the information about the canceled event I found via Google was from either pro-homosexual websites or Leftist critics of the cancellation.

 

Frankly I can’t vouch if this search engine availability is because Google is making sure pro-homosexual information occurs about Folsom Street East searches or if Pro-Family and Pro-Christian Moral Values organizations have dropped the ball on exploiting this story.

 

Shame on Google if they are skewing search engine results or shame on Pro-Family/Pro-Christian Moral Values organizations if they dropped the ball or shame on both if these thoughts on search engines and the Conservative-Christian Right are valid accusations.

 

Here are excerpts from two pro-homosexual sources on the closing of Folsom Street East (Hat Tip: Solid Snake):

 

 

For most of its 16 years, Folsom East was surrounded by industrial sites and strip clubs. But a recent construction boom brought residential buildings to the far-flung block between 10th and 11th avenues.

 

Named after the legendary Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco, the party usually draws thousands of visitors and raises money for LGBT-related charitable causes.

 

In addition to the +aRt condo, where residents already live, construction on the two-building, 710-unit Avalon West Chelsea is also underway, which will eventually bring a 31-story tower and 13-story building to the block.

 

The changing dynamic already affected last year’s festival — when some residents of the +aRt building complained about being “embarrassed” by the kinky revelers, leading organizers to construct a sidewalk corridor allowing residents to get to their homes without walking through Folsom East itself.

 

The message on Folsom East’s website assured fetish-lovers that the festival would return, though it was unclear if it would be on the same block.

 

“Thanks for 16 great years celebrating sexual freedom with the Folsom Street East Street Festival and we hope to see you back on the kinky streets of New York City in 2014!” the site reads.

 

A spokeswoman for Folsom East did not immediately respond to requests for comment. (Folsom East Fetish Festival Canceled Due to Construction; By Mathew Katz; DNAinfo New York; April 23, 2013 10:09 am)

 

With the twin blows yesterday of hearing that both Folsom Street East and Fleet Week have been cancelled this year (really, what are we going to do during June?) here’s a bit of a respite.

 

Fil Vocasek, the board chairmen of Folsom Street East, says that the organization is attempting to plan a number of fetish-themed events throughout the month of June which will take the form of smaller, indoor parties at various venues. The main event was cancelled this year due to construction on 28th Street.

 

“We’re in conversation with other groups and organizations to make sure there are a lot of fetish, kinky things going on in the month of June,” Vocasek tells DNAinfo.

 

Folsom Street East’s cancellation came after the closing of the popular fetish and leather bar, Rawhide last month. That site, however, may be staying true to it’s gay bar roots.

 

Though the advertisement outside of the old Rawhide on Eighth Avenue describes the “corner restaurant/retail space for lease,” the agent behind the listing suggests that another gay bar or club may be taking over the reins from the popular leather bar that closed March 30.

 

JD Sutro, a broker of Lee & Associates says “A lot of people know the history, everyone knows Rawhide, so we’ve gotten a lot of calls looking to open up another men’s bar or another restaurant that supplements the area.” (Folsom Street East planning smaller events throughout June in lieu of cancelled street fair; By Will Pulos; Next Magazine; April 25, 2013)

 

Below is an excerpt from a homosexual friendly author that provides more detail about the resident’s perspective on the Folsom Street East:

 

New Yorkers have mixed feelings about the High Line. Sure, it’s popular enough to make other cities jealous. But it’s kind of out of the way and, damningly, overrun by tourists. It’s also long been the object of ire from long-time residents suspicious of Bloombergian development, who find it a little too … manicured. It’s a project that makes New Yorkers face up to the question of what sort of city they want to live in — one that’s exciting, but little bit rougher around the edges, or one that’s safe but maybe a little bit tame? And that contrast has never been as stark as now, when High Line-related construction is conflicting with a kinky sex parade.

 

Jeremiah Moss, a blogger who’s solidly on the side of the older, rougher city, writes that the construction of fancy buildings in the High Line’s neighborhood has led to the cancellation of an old and dear ritual: the Folsom Street East street festival, “the largest outdoor fetish street festival on the easter coast, which brings thousands of sexy kinksters out onto the streets of New York City on a summer afternoon to celebrate sexual diversity and expression.”

 

 

Perhaps this is a sign that whatever kinky culture is left in New York has simply moved to a more outer borough. But perhaps shiny, modern cities can’t be safe for tourists, gentrifiers, and sexy kinksters at the same time. For efficiency reasons, it’s quite desirable for more people to live in cities, but it’s important to make sure there’s room not just for people who want to spend $4 on hibiscus ice pops but for people who’d rather spend their money on horse-tail buttplugs. (New York has to choose between its High Line and its kinky sex parades; By Sarah Laskow; Grist; 23 Apr 2013 12:18 PM)

 

You see the problem I have in relying on news sources that favor moral corruption is there is no perspective from the residents expanding into the 28th Street area of Manhattan where homosexual debaucheries take place. The Pro-Homo sources dare not mention that some-many-most of the residents’ view of homosexual acts as something more than inappropriate. Could some-many-most view open homosexuality as morally repugnant?

 

This is the point at which Pro-Family/Conservative-Christian groups have dropped the ball. Someone needs to investigate the percentage of the complaining residents are willing to eschew political correctness and let the world know they have a Christian Moral conflict with the homosexual lifestyle in their front and backyard. Send the Catholic pro-morality investigators to the Catholics and send the Protestant pro-morality investigators to the Protestants. OR here is a true ecumenical idea: This is a time for pro-morality Catholics and Protestants can come together on to investigate AND to promote Christian Morality in the area.

 

I say “true ecumenical” because the current ecumenical movement tends to be Liberal factions of Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestants unifying on a social activism agenda which tends to be pro-homosexual and to be neutering the Word of God in which Christ’s Divinity, Crucifixion and Sonship are theologically questioned because the Bible does not line up with Modernist philosophy which leans toward secularizing society and abandoning the Creator of all that exists as presented in the Holy Bible. A true ecumenism would be Bible Believing Christians (or on the Catholic-Eastern Orthodox side the Conservative Believing traditionalists) can stand together to jointly affirm Christian Morality.
