What those Muslims were chanting at Washington National Cathedral

On Nov. 14, 2014, the Washington National Cathedral in D.C. — an Episcopal Christian church that calls itself “the spiritual home for the nation” — hosted a Muslim prayer service that was by invitation only.

I’ve posted about how the Muslim prayer service to “Allah” — a moon god whom Arabs had worshiped before Mohammad founded Islam — violated the First Commandment.

I’ve explained that the cathedral’s hosting a Muslim prayer service is an invitation to Muslims to claim the cathedral as theirs because according to Islam, physical possession of an area by Muslims is regarded as spiritual possession by Islam, especially when Muslims pray there.

But the National Cathedral chose to ignore all of that, in the interest of promoting “religious freedom” and “interfaith dialogue” and against “Islamophobia.”

I’ve also posted about a brave woman, Christine Weick, who alone spoke up for Christ amidst that blasphemous prayer service in which Muslim prayer rugs replaced the Cross. Pointing to the cross, Weick proclaimed: “Jesus Christ died on that cross. He is the reason we are to worship only Him. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. We have…allowed you your mosques in this country. Why don’t you worship in your mosques and leave our churches alone? We are a country founded on Christian principles.”

She was escorted quickly out of the church by security guards.

But are you curious about the prayer service itself? What prayers did the Muslims say?

I searched the Internet but found only two sources that actually reported what those Muslims said, prayed, and chanted at the National Cathedral, neither of which is mainstream U.S. media.

Muslims praying at Washington National Cathedral

From CBN News:

1. A Muslim man sang from the podium, “allahu akbar, allahu akbar,” a phrase which can be translated to mean “allah is greatest” or “allah is greater.”

2. Rizwan Jaka of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) called the National Cathedral a house of prayer for all people. The ISNA has ties to the radical Muslim Brotherhood, and was named by federal prosecutors in 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history.

3. A woman named Inas Shabazz said, “I think that if people read and have a better understanding that they will know that we are a peaceful people. You know… the Koran… Islam… Muslim… it all means peace and love. There’s nothing terroristic about it.

By the Koran and Islam being all “peace and love,” was Shabazz referring to these quotes from the Koran?

Sura 9:29– “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

Sura 9:5– “Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free.”

From Israel Today:

1. Hundreds of Muslims prostrate on their prayer rugs chanted in unison: There is only one god, he begets not and I bear witness that Muhammad is His only servant and Apostle.”

Just so you know, by “he begets not,” Muslims mean Jesus is not the son of God. 

2. An Imam led the congregation of hundreds in declaring that “god has no son, that Jesus Christ cannot be his son, and that there is no god like Allah.”

In other words, on November 14, in a Christian cathedral that has seen countless funerals for presidents and other dignatories of the still Christian America, hundreds of Muslims defiled the church by denouncing Jesus Christ as Son of God, and proclaiming their blood-thirsty moon god as the one god.

That’s a hell of a way to promote “interfaith dialogue and tolerance.”

The liberal clerics of Washington National Cathedral might as well have invited outright Satanists. At least satanists are honest about the god demon they worship.

5th-grader suspended for pointing imaginary gun

WCVB: Milford (MA) parent is questioning the two-day suspension of his 10-year-old son from Stacy Middle School, our news partners at the Milford Daily News reported.

Nickolas Taylor, a fifth-grader, was suspended after pointing an imaginary ray gun – his finger – and mouthing laser sounds in the school’s cafeteria last Friday, said Brian Taylor, Nickolas’ father.

“I think this is very slanderous toward Nickolas and his character,” said Taylor. “It was non-threatening. He’s just a typical boy with an imagination.”

A conduct slip, written by Assistant Principal Noah Collins, lists the offense as a threat. Collins could not be reached for comment despite numerous phone calls and emails seeking comment – nor could Stacy Principal Nancy Angelini. Superintendent Robert Tremblay also did not return phone calls and emails.

In the school’s 88-page handbook, threats are listed as an offense punishable by detention, suspension, or even expulsion based on the severity. The level of severity is often at the discretion of the administrator tasked to reprimand the student, said School Committee Chairperson Scott Harrison.

Policies against threats and guns have been implemented in the district for decades, he said. The School Committee has made no recent revisions to the policy. Though the handbook explicitly lists toy weapons as items banned from school grounds, there is no clause that specifically addresses imaginary weapons.

In the report provided by Brian Taylor, Collins writes two girls came to him saying that Nickolas cut the lunch line and, when confronted, pointed the imaginary gun at them while mouthing the shooting sounds.

In an interview with the Daily News, Nickolas said he was standing behind the girls and was shooting his imaginary gun in no particular direction. Nickolas has no history of discipline outside detentions for incomplete school work, said Brian Taylor.

Nickolas has been diagnosed with ADHD and sometimes is disciplined because he is hyperactive and fails to focus, Brian Taylor said. “He’s confused as to why he got suspended,” said Brian Taylor. “He doesn’t realize he did something wrong.”

On Monday, Taylor said he had a half-hour conversation with Collins but the assistant principal did not lift the suspension. “There’s a complete disconnect between policy and reality,” said Taylor.

Son calls famous atheist Madalyn O’Hair “evil”

Madalyn Murray O’Hair (1919–1995), who was baptized a Presbyterian as a child, was an American atheist activist. She founded American Atheist Magazine and the organization American Atheists, and was the organization’s official president 1963-1986 and its de facto president 1986-1995.

O’Hair is best known for the Murray v. Curlett lawsuit, which led to a landmark 8-1 Supreme Court ruling ending official Bible-reading in American public schools in 1963. A year before, in 1982, prayer in schools other than Bible-readings had already been ended by the Court’s ruling in Engel v. Vitalein which the Court ruled that the sanctioning of a prayer by the school amounted to a violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.”

Justice Potter Stewart

Justice Potter Stewart

Justice Potter Stewart was the lone dissenter from the 1963 Supreme Court ruling ending Bible-reading in public schools.

He pointed out the long history of government religious practice in the United States, including the fact that the Supreme Court opens its own sessions with the declaration, “God Save this Honorable Court” and that Congress opens its sessions with prayers, among many other examples. Stewart believed that such practice fit with the nation’s long history of permitting free exercise of religious practices, even in the public sphere, and that “It is…a fallacious oversimplification to regard the [religion clauses] as establishing a single constitutional standard of ‘separation of church and state’, which can be applied in every case to delineate the required boundaries between government and religion.”

In 1995 O’Hair was kidnapped, murdered and mutilated, along with her son Jon Garth Murray and granddaughter Robin Murray O’Hair, by three men — David Roland Waters, a convicted felon out on parole; and fellow career criminals Gary Karr and Danny Fry.

Madalyn O'Hair in 1983, age 64

Madalyn O’Hair in 1983, age 64

O’Hair had two sons, Jon Garth Murray and William J. Murray, both conceived out of wedlock and sired by different men. The older son William J. Murray became a Christian in 1980. Learning of this, O’Hair said, “One could call this a postnatal abortion on the part of a mother, I guess; I repudiate him entirely and completely for now and all times … he is beyond human forgiveness.”

In a statement first released in 1999 and re-published by Religious Freedom Coalition, William J. Murray, author of My Life Without God, calls his mother “evil.” Below are excerpts from Murray’s searingly honest account.

William J. Murray's book

My mother, brother and daughter were murdered by fellow atheists.

There is no getting around the evidence. For almost three years the national atheist organization my mother once led has claimed she left the country with a large amount of money. This was false and I will tell you in this letter why they told this lie over and over again.

First, I want to talk to you about spiritual matters that the general media does not understand.

My mother was not just Madalyn Murray O’Hair, the atheist leader. She was an evil person who led many to hell. That is hard for me to say about my own mother but it is true.

When I was a young boy of ten or eleven years old she would come home and brag about spending the day in X-rated movie theaters in downtown Baltimore. She was proud of the fact she was the only woman in the movie house watching this filth. My mother’s whole life circulated around such things. She even wrote articles for Larry Flynt’s pornographic magazine, Hustler. My mother lived in spiritual death as Paul writes: “But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.” I Timothy 5:6

My mother delighted in hiring unrepentant criminals to work in her atheist office. She particularly enjoyed hiring convicted murderers who had served their time but were unrepentant about what they had done. She got a sense of power out of having men in her employ who had taken human life. It was love of power over people that finally caused not only her death, but the deaths of my brother and my daughter.

My mother had complete power over my brother, Jon, and my daughter, Robin. Although I was able to break away from the evil of this family, an evil that had been there for generations, they could not. My mother did not permit either my brother or my daughter to speak to me. She had total control of them.

My brother would have been forty years old the month he was murdered. He lived with my mother. He had breakfast with my mother. He went to work with my mother. He had lunch with my mother. He had dinner with my mother. He went on vacation with my mother. He never married. He never really even had the opportunity to have a serious relationship with a woman because Of the control my mother possessed over him. My mother had the same control over my daughter. She was just thirty the year she was murdered. She also lived with my mother. My mother used food to control her and make her unattractive to men. By the time she was murdered she was so heavy she had to purchase two airline tickets because she could not fit in one seat.

For twenty years I could not talk to my brother. He would hang up the phone on me or tear up my letters and send them back. The same was true of my daughter. They both called me “TRAITOR” because I had accepted Christ and changed my life. By “traitor” they meant that I no longer followed the absolute direction of my mother as they did.

The house they lived in had statuettes of mating animals on virtually every piece of furniture. There was a full cabinet of booze and a refrigerator full of foods high in fat and sugar. They liked to live a life which my mother called “high off the hog”.

I must admit that toward the end I had lost hope for my mother’s conversion. The last ten years of her life she became even more profane and vulgar as the demons she courted got their final hold on her. The media stopped courting her because of the number of profane words she would use which they had to edit out. [...]

My mother was an evil person … Not for removing prayer from America’s schools … No … She was just evil. She stole huge amounts of money. She misused the trust of people. She cheated children out of their parents’ inheritance. She cheated on her taxes and even stole from her own organizations. She once printed up phony stock certificates on her own printing press to try to take over another atheist publishing company. I could go on but I won’t. All the money my mother made in this manner stayed behind. It did not go with her. “For we brought nothing into this world and it is certain we can carry nothing out.” I Timothy 6:7

My mother simply believed, “Do what thou wilt shall be the only law.” [...]

The deaths of my mother, brother and daughter should make all too clear the need for Christ to others that proclaim atheism. But those who would follow my mother continue to fight against God and His authority. “Fools make a mock at sin… ” Prov. 14:8

During Easter, what is left of my mother’s American Atheist organization held a convention in New Jersey. My ministry placed an advertisement in the newspaper there to tell them about Jesus. The new atheist leader, Ellen Johnson, ranted and raved against me, against Christ and against the Holy Spirit.

atheism1

My mother simply believed, “Do what thou wilt shall be the only law.”

“Do what thou wilt” was coined by occultist satanist Aleister Crowley. It is also the motto of the Church of Satan.

Madalyn O’Hair was not an atheist. She was a satanist.

The woman who alone spoke up for Christ in Washington National Cathedral

On Nov. 14, 2014, the Washington National Cathedral in D.C. — an Episcopal Christian church that calls itself “the spiritual home for the [American] nation” — hosted a Muslim prayer service that was by invitation only. (See also “U.S. Episcopal Church is vicious toward its orthodox believers”)

The cathedral did that despite the fact that the prayer service to “Allah” (a moon deity worshipped by Arabs before Islam):

  1. Violates the Second Commandment, “Thou shalt have no other god before me”; and
  2. Enables Muslims to claim the cathedral as theirs: In Islam, physical possession of an area by Muslims is regarded as spiritual possession by Islam, and the greatest gesture of Islam’s dominance over a particular area is when Muslims pray in it, especially when they perform the obligatory Friday jummah prayers in the place. (See “The folly of Washington National Cathedral’s Muslim prayer service“)

Christine Weick

One lone, brave woman spoke up against the blasphemous Muslim prayer service. As recounted by WND:

The stage was set. The prayer rugs were neatly arranged facing Mecca. The lights shone down on the imam for his opening remarks.

Not so fast.

Christine Weick, a 50-year-old Michigan woman with flowing blonde hair. . . rose from the packed National Cathedral, the hall of halls in terms of religious prominence in America, and moved toward the front of the church.

She pointed to the cross hanging overhead.

That cross seemed to be the one thing nobody wanted to look at . . . . “Jesus Christ died on that cross. He is the reason we are to worship only Him. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior,” she said. “We have built …allowed you your mosques in this country. Why don’t you worship in your mosques and leave our churches alone? We are a country founded on Christian principles.”

Below is a video of Weick’s witnessing for Christ, followed by her story as told to WND.

“It was quite an overwhelming day yesterday,” [Weick] said.

And while she was lauded for her bravery, she confided she was “literally scared to death” as she waited for the right moment to stand up and proclaim the gospel message.

“They never said a word to me. Two guys came up and got me. I remember one large man in a suit taking me by the arm, very strongly but he did not hurt me,” she said.

“He just put an arm on me and said, ‘We are walking this way.’ Then comes the police officer, and I’m thinking, ‘OK I’m done.’ I’m still in the sanctuary at this point, so I put out my hands for the officer to arrest me, but he just held my hand and walked me to the back of the church.

“He handed me over to a woman officer, who takes me to the front doors of the church. She hands me to another officer, who takes me to another officer in the foyer, who takes me out to the road. Not one of them said a word. I was free to go.”

She said she told the last officer who led her to the road to have a good day, to which he gave no response. She returned to her vehicle and soon afterward drove home.

Except she doesn’t have a home. She said her husband divorced her last year “over a spiritual conflict,” and her family disowned her because she took a stand against same-sex marriage and other “moral issues.”

Weick said she learned of the Muslim prayer service two days before it was scheduled to happen through an article posted on the Drudge Report. The more she thought about it, she felt the Lord was telling her to go to Washington and say something.

“My blood began to boil as I read the comments of how this is to be such a wonderful event and how religious tolerance can, for the first time, be shown in our nation’s capital,” she said.

Still, she had nervous doubts about making the 400-mile trip from Kingsport, Tennessee.

“That article got my attention. And then I Googled the Washington National Cathedral, and I got more information about the service,” she said.

She found out from the cathedral’s website that the event was for “invited guests only.”

“That’s when I knew I had to be creative, and so did God,” she said.

She wasn’t sure what type of creativity would be required or even if she was doing the right thing as she headed out on the road to D.C. In fact, she almost turned around.

I was driving there on my way from Tennessee, and I’ve got a lot of doubts in my mind: Am I going to make a fool of myself? Am I going to be in jail for the weekend?”

But as she drove down the highway in the right lane, she passed a strange woman.

“There’s this woman stepping out of her vehicle on the side of the road, clapping and giving me two thumbs up, and I’m like, ‘That was the strangest thing,’” she said. “The first thing that went through my mind was, ‘That’s my confirmation right there.’ That’s all I needed, and from that point on I knew this was something I’m going to do; and that was the catapult that moved me to keep going towards Washington.”

She said she told only four people where she was going and what she planned to do. She asked for prayer.

“I said I need you to pray for me, this is what God has put in my bones to do,” she said. “It didn’t hit me until I got in the cathedral and saw all the people and the cameras sitting on my right, and I’m thinking, ‘This is a big deal. I am going to be put in jail!’”

She credits God for getting her into the massive church, which was guarded like Fort Knox. Everyone had to go through a checkpoint to make sure they weren’t armed or posed a threat.

“It was a God thing how I got past all that security in the beginning. They never ID’d me, and I had brought my ID with me just in case, and I thought that would be my downfall, being from Michigan, that they would say, ‘What is she doing here?” Weick said. “According to reports, this was a heavy security event. They checked every bag and every person that walked in there. I bet some security people are in big trouble today.”

She said she slipped through unnoticed, first by following a security guard and then later by engaging in conversation alongside a woman with press credentials.

“I just followed those security officers when they were going from place to place. I just followed them,” she said. “It was almost like they didn’t see me. Like I was invisible.”

Weick got through the security line about 10:15 a.m., more than an hour and a half before the prayer service started. She needed to lie low to avoid detection.

She noticed a janitor’s closet was left open near the bathroom and briefly thought about hiding in it. But a fear of being locked in persuaded her against that option.

She slipped into the bathroom instead.

“When I was in the bathroom hiding out, that’s when it hit me: I think I’m invisible, I really wondered, the way it happened, just strange, just totally strange; and someday I’m going to ask God how that all worked out,” she said.

While hiding in the bathroom and waiting for the service to start, she rehearsed over and over what she would say. She prayed constantly, with emphasis on Psalm 27.

A woman was washing her hands at the sink as Weick left the stall where she was hiding. The woman had a press tag on her blouse.

“I asked her if she knew what time the service was to start and she replied, ‘In a few minutes. Do you know where to go?’ I didn’t.”

“Follow me and I will take you to the front,” the woman said.

“I walked with her into the main foyer up to the security line. We walked right past the guards and into the sanctuary! I was invisible.”

Still, the butterflies fluttered in her stomach.

“As she took her seat she was shocked at what she saw. About a hundred people were sitting in chairs around rugs that were placed on the floor. Muslim women, separated from the men, were seated on the rugs. To her right was the news media with their cameras and recording equipment. In front of her were the prayer rugs.

“Then it hit me… I had such an angst come over me. Seeing these Muslims sitting on their rugs ready to bow to a god, causing such an abomination in the house of the Lord,” she said.

The imam said the call to prayer would begin momentarily and spoke some words in Arabic.

Weick felt her heart thumping in her chest.

“I prayed… ‘Lord! Tell me when!’ At that moment I saw a figure of Christ on the cross some distance away. I stood up.

“I was so nervous; you’ll never know how scared I was,” she said. “All I kept thinking was, ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me; that’s my only strength.’ I could not do it through me. But we have an amazing God. He shows his strength in my weakness. That’s my motto.”

She started to speak, firmly and loudly but not out of control. What she said was not the same as what she had rehearsed in the bathroom stall.

“I did not plan on those exact words coming out. I was going to say it differently. I was planning to say, ‘I serve a risen Savior, and Muhammad is dead.’ But I saw the cross and it just popped out of my mouth. I was not going to say it that way. I rehearsed it the other way over and over in the bathroom, because my biggest fear was making a fool of myself; but it didn’t happen that way.”

Even if she had failed and made herself a fool, it could not be more painful than what she has already gone through over the past year, she said.

“I took a very strong stand on something last year. My husband divorced me over it. It broke my heart. I have a lot of heartache back home, a lot of hurt,” she said. “And I felt the Lord telling me, ‘You are going to go from place to place for me.’”

While she lives out of her car, she doesn’t consider herself homeless.

“Don’t be sorry for me. I have a very nice SUV. I go out to eat, I have a bank account,” she told WND. “I am just too Dutch to pay 60 or 70 bucks for a hotel every night when I can spend my nights in my car. And I travel every night from place to place, and that is what I was doing when I saw the story in the Drudge Report.” [...]

Weick said she did nothing outside of what God gave her the strength to do, and she doesn’t see herself as any hero of the faith. The weakest of Christians could easily do the same thing, she said.

“That’s why I posted on Facebook this morning. I was like, ‘Come on Christian soldiers we need to fight, and we need to fight using the gospel, the Word of God,’” she said. “There are Muslims everywhere, just walk up to them and say, ‘Jesus Christ is Lord.’ Be brave.

“I’m hearing that many Muslims are getting dreams. Maybe all it takes is one to have a dream after being told Jesus Christ is Lord, I don’t know. That is God’s deal. Let Him work it out. We just need to be bold in the Lord and we don’t need to be burning their mosques down, like they burn our churches. We have the gospel and that is our only weapon we need. Jesus is Lord, and we need to proclaim it, but how many times do we do it?

But before Weick became bold, she was humbled.

“It was a situation in my life, how God yanked every anchor in my life over the last five years, just everything that would keep a normal woman, a normal mother, at home just got yanked out from under me,” she said. “I have a son and a daughter, and they disowned me. I took a stand against gay marriage and I lost them. That is my heartache. And it hurts me so much. And I wonder what they think now when they see me on the news.”

Weick said she doesn’t know what her next “assignment” will be, but she knows now she can tackle almost anything.

“I told the Lord last night, ‘OK, you can take me now,’ but I don’t know,” she said. “I think He may have other plans for me, per Jeremiah 29:11.”

Soros-funded organization has 666 address

“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” -Rev. 13:18

That's George Soros in the chair on the right. Soros hosted Obama's first presidential campaign fund-raising soiree.

That’s George Soros in the chair on the right. Soros hosted Obama’s first presidential campaign fund-raising soiree.

One of the leftwing groups that international currency speculator George Soros funds is the noble-sounding Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR).

According to the website NGO Monitor, George Soros is a major donor to CCR:

CCR’s net assets (2006) exceeded $5 million, 77% from endowments, foundations and individual gifts. These donations include large donations from the Ford Foundation, and George Soros’ Open Society Institute. Over 1,050 other foundations and individuals have donated to CCR.

Founded in 1966 “by attorneys who represented civil rights movements in the South,” CCR describes itself as “a non-profit legal and educational organization” dedicated to “advancing and protecting the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

CCR’s real mission, however, is revealed after the verbiage about the Constitution — “committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change.”

But if CCR is honest, its mission statement instead should read “committed to the PERVERSE use of law as a DESTRUCTIVE force for social change.” As evidence, let’s look at the groups and movements supported by and to which CCR is linked. Those groups include:

1. The criminal syndicate ACORN or Association and Community Organizations for Reform Now , a private network of “community organizing” groups funded by taxpayers whose criminal activities included voter registration fraud and home loans for illegal aliens. A July 2009 congressional report, “Is ACORN Intentionally Structured As a Criminal Enterprise?,” accused ACORN of massive fraud, money laundering, and racketeering directed from the highest levels of the organization’s management. On September 17, 2009, Congress passed the “Defund ACORN Act,” resulting in the disbanding of ACORN groups across the U.S. and the reconstitution of some of the same groups under different names. (See my post of Feb. 24, 2010, “ACORN, the Undead“.) Given the fact the ACORN supposedly no longer exists, at least under the ACORN name, it is noteworthy that the Soros-funded Center for Constitutional Rights still lists ACORN among the groups and movements CCR supports.

2. The Hyde – 30 Years is Enough! Campaign: “a national network of grassroots groups working to repeal the Hyde Amendment and, in doing so, restore full public funding of abortion as part of a comprehensive health care for all,” i.e., as part of Obamacare.

3. New Sanctuary Movement: “a coalition of interfaith religious leaders and participating congregations” that provide sanctuary to illegal migrants, i.e., protection to criminals.

4. The Audre Lorde Project: “a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Two Spirit [what's dat?], Trans and Gender Non Conforming People of Color center for community organizing, focusing on the New York City area.”

Writing in Freedom Outpost, Matt Barber tells us the latest project of CCR is the persecution of pastor Scott Lively of Abiding Truth Ministries:

Scott LivelyBecause Lively exercised his God-given First Amendment rights, as well as his free-speech rights afforded by the laws of Uganda, and spoke biblical truth about homosexual sin after having been invited there by a number of Ugandan pro-family groups, homosexual activists set out to make an example of him.

In March of 2012 CCR sued Lively in a Massachusetts federal court for “crimes against humanity” – the same charge filed against Nazis who stood trial in Nuremberg – on behalf of another moonbat organization called “Sexual Minorities Uganda,” which, and again, you can’t make this stuff up, prefers the moniker “SMUG.” [...]

Lively is being tried for “crimes against humanity” for merely uttering, publicly, millennia-old biblical orthodoxy relative to sexual morality.

So how could such an Orwellian lawsuit – clearly designed as a weapon to both harass and intimidate Lively and anyone else who might dare challenge the global homosexual activist political agenda – even make its way into a U. S. federal court? [...]

Michael PonsorMeet federal Judge Michael Ponsor [...] the textbook example of a judicial activist. He has admitted as much, once saying in another context that, “At some point I realized that judges are the unappointed legislators of mankind, and what we do is just as creative.” [...]

SMUG’s and CCR’s end game is clear: Make war criminals out of anyone who encourages any legislative body to pass any legislation upholding the traditional family. If Scott Lively is guilty of the Crime Against Humanity of Persecution, then so are the Houston pastors and anyone who has ever tried to influence legislation against the homosexual juggernaut. There is no limiting principle,” concluded Harry Mihet, Pastor Lively’s lead attorney. [...]

This was never about winning or losing.

It was always about intimidation.

(See also DCG’s post, “City of Houston subpoenas pastors’ sermons in equal rights ordinance case”.)

Guess what the Center for Constitutional Rights’ address is.

From CCR’s “Contact” page:

The Center for Constitutional Rights is located at:

666 Broadway
7th Floor
New York, NY 10012

Florida school board moves to change policy to keep Satanist coloring book out of schools

satanic

WPTV: Worried about facing national ridicule if a Satanic group is allowed to give out coloring books to children, the Orange County School Board moved Thursday toward preventing any outside group from distributing religious materials on campus.

The current policy has allowed groups to distribute Bibles and even atheist materials at district high schools in recent years.

The board discussed the issue during a workshop Thursday. The earliest it could vote to change the policy would be late January or early February, officials said.

“This really has, frankly, gotten out of hand,” said chairman Bill Sublette. “I think we’ve seen a group or groups take advantage of the open forum we’ve had.”

satanic2But a spokesman for The Satanic Temple, the group the group that wants to give out coloring books featuring cartoon children performing Satanic rituals and drawing pentagrams in school, said it is the School Board that is acting in bad faith.

“It strongly implies they never intended to have a plurality of voices,” said Doug Mesner, co-founder and spokesman for The Satanic Temple, who also goes by the pseudonym Lucien Greaves.

An evangelical group called World Changers of Florida has given out Bibles in Orange schools three times. “We’re looking forward to doing it again,” said World Changers Vice President Greg Harper. The group has purchased materials and is gathering volunteers to give out the New International Version in 18 district high schools on Jan. 16, he said.

However, district counsel Woody Rodriguez said the Satanists are the only group to have submitted a request.

Harper said he considers the possible policy change an attack on Christians. “They seem to be moving against the interests of a large part of the community,” he said, likening it to the district’s August decision to ban football chaplains at schools. “The Bible will open somebody’s heart, somebody’s mind, and cause them to pursue answers.”

Board member Christine Moore also seemed to struggle with the effect of a policy change on Christian groups. “Everyone’s upset about the Satanists and the atheists coming,” she said.

But another group involved in the debate sees an upside. “It’s a bit of a relief,” said David Williamson of the Central Florida Freethought Community. His group distributed atheist materials in 2013 as a protest against Bible distributions.

Rodriguez said the district was bound by the terms of a federal consent decree that required Collier County schools to allow the same group to give out Bibles.

86M Americans simply don’t want to work: 40% of women, 28% of men, 39% of youth

evolution of man

There is a simple truth about America’s declining unemployment numbers about which the MSM don’t tell you.

Many of the unemployed — TENS OF MILLIONS of them — have simply stopped looking for work. They’ve dropped out of the U.S. labor force, and so they are not counted among the ranks of the “unemployed.”

Paul Bedard reports for Washington Examiner, Nov. 14, 2014, that a mind-boggling 92 million Americans, or nearly 4 in every 10 Americans, are not in the labor force.

That’s more than the population of entire countries. More Americans have dropped out of the labor force than the entire population of Vietnam (89.7 million) or Egypt (87.5 million) or Germany (80.7 million) or France (66 million). In fact, there are more Americans who are not working than TWICE the population of Spain.

And now we know the reason why so many Americans have dropped out of the labor force: They have simply given up and don’t want to work.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 93% (or 85.9 million adults) of the people not in the labor force are those who don’t want a job. So much for the much-touted Protestant Work Ethic that had industrialized America and transformed it into a world super power.

So who are these American ADULTS that simply don’t want to work?

According to a Pew Research Center analysis out last Friday, Nov. 14, they are:

  • 28.5% of men said they didn’t want a job in October 2014 — up from 23.9% in October 2000 and 25.2% in October 2008.
  • 40.2% of women said they didn’t want a job in October 2014 — up from 38% throughout the 2000s.
  • 39% of young adults (ages 16-24) don’t want to work, up from 29% in 2000.

Americans who don't want to work

The number of Americans who don’t work will only increase — exponentially — in coming years.

Business Standard reports, Nov. 17, 2014, that advances in technology, especially robotics, will render obsolete half of today’s occupations by 2025 — in 11 years.

According to a report titled “Fast Forward 2030: The Future of Work and the Workplace,” based on interviews with 220 experts, business leaders and young people from Asia, Europe and North America, “Nearly 50 per cent of occupations today will no longer exist in 2025.”

The upside is that new jobs will require creative intelligence, social and emotional intelligence and ability to leverage artificial intelligence, which means those new jobs will be immensely more fulfilling than today’s jobs — for the economic élite.

But what will society do with the teeming HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of Americans who no longer work?

Answer: Expect even more distracting, sensationalist, self-indulgent, mind-rotting and soul-rotting garbage on your TV and in movies, sports, and pop “music.”

No wonder the average I.Q. of humans across the world is declining.
