Satanic Temple wants prayer in school to the Devil

crucifix repels vampireJust like their father, the Devil, who twists and perverts God’s words, Satanists in America are hell bent on exploiting the Constitution’s First Amendment guarantees for their purpose.

In 2009, the conservative-led Oklahoma state legislature approved a privately funded Ten Commandments monument, which was erected last year outside the state Capitol building.

While atheists and the ACLU oppose the Ten Commandment monument on the grounds of the First Amendment’s misinterpreted “separation of church and state” — a phrase not found in the First Amendment but originates in an 1802 letter by Thomas Jefferson — a group of New York-based devil worshippers who call themselves the Satanic Temple, demand their right to erect a monument to Satan next to the Ten Commandments in the name of “religious parity.”

Below is the Satanic Temple’s proposed 7-foot-tall statue of Satan as Baphomet, a goat-headed figure with horns, wings and a long beard that’s often used as a symbol of the occult. In the rendering, Satan is sitting in a pentagram-adorned throne with smiling children next to him.

Now, the Satanic Temple, in the name of “protecting the children,” wants in on the right to pray in school – as long as they can pray to the devil.

Brownie Marie reports for Christianity Today, April 14, 2014, that the devil worshipers say they are fighting for the rights of public school students to learn in a cruelty-free classroom.

In a press release, the Temple declared May 15 as “Protect Children Day” to promote the rights of public school students to learn in a cruelty-free classroom, free of physical and mental abuse.

Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said, “One of the fundamental tenets of The Satanic Temple is personal sovereignty and the inviolability of one’s body and mind. Hitting a child or placing them in solitary confinement goes entirely against our beliefs. We want children to know that they are permitted to pray to Satan in school and that they can even share their religious beliefs with others in accordance with certain guidelines.”

Lucien GreavesGreaves makes the devil’s horns hand-sign (Oops! Excuse me! it’s really the “I love you” sign of deaf-mutes! No, it’s really the Texas Longhorns handsign! Sarc) at a Satanic Temple rally in Tallahassee, on Jan. 25, 2013, in support of Florida Governor Rick Scott’s Senate Bill 98.

Students are encouraged to register on Satanic Temple’s website, ProtectChildrenProject.com, where they are asked to submit their name, email address, and the name of their school in order to receive “help” from the Temple. The organization sanctimoniously insists that submission does not make one a Temple member, and is open to all denominations.

However, at the same time as ProtectChildrenProject.com provides fact sheets on physical and psychological abuse in schools, also available is a Satanic activity book.

Parents and grandparents, beware!!!!!!!!!

Dog waits 8 days in parking lot for hospitalized owner

Lauri da Costa, a homeless man in Passo Fundo, Brazil, was randomly attacked when he was smashed in the face with a rock.

So he staggered to a hospital, where doctors discovered he had melanoma on his face and must be operated on immediately.

Though homeless, da Costa has a best friend — a faithful dog named Seco.

Seco waited for da Costa outside the hospital in the parking lot, expecting his master to return soon.

But hours turned into days, and days into more than a week.

Still Seco patiently waited in the parking lot.

Hospital staff eventually began feeding Seco and giving him water.

After eight days, as da Costa was recovering from surgery, dog and owner were finally reunited.

Tears . . . .

Creation: So who created God?

Ring galaxyThe Ring Galaxy, with a span of 100,000 light years, is 600 million light years away from Earth. Visible in the gap (at about one o’clock) is yet another ring galaxy that likely lies even farther in the distance. [NASA]

Dr. Hugh Ross is a Christian physicist and astronomer who writes books and a terrific blog, Reasons to Believe, showing how science and Christianity can be very compatible. More than that, Dr. Ross uses science to demonstrate the truths of our Christian faith.

In his Summa Theologica, St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) famously reasoned for the existence of God by pointing to “the chains of effecting causes that exist in the world. Things here are produced by their causes; these causes in turn were produced by their causes, and so on. Ultimately, there must be a first cause….”

In his post of April 7, 2014, Dr. Ross answers a very good question from a non-believer on who/what created that first cause. Here’s the question:

Hello,

Let me start by saying I’m not actually a believer at this moment. When listening to the lectures, I hear a lot of talk about the complexity of things being a big proponent for creation or design because somebody created it. But at some point in the paradigm you’re at least admitting that, somewhere, something just existed that was at least as complex as, or more complex than, us….If we couldn’t have just existed, how could you say God just existed without something creating him. I’d like to hear your answer on that.

— Submitted by an attendee of an RTB event in San Antonio, TX

Dr. Ross gave a brilliant answer, pointing out that cause-and-effect can only happen in our Universe of space and time.

For if we say that X caused Y, X must have happened some time before Y.

But the Creator of the Universe cannot Himself be contained in that Universe. That means the Creator is outside our Universe of space and time, which in turn means that the Creator, the First Cause, is outside of time and, therefore, has no cause.

As St. Thomas Aquinas put it:

Where there is motion, there is a mover, and ultimately a first mover, itself unmoved. This is God.Ultimately, there must be a first cause which is itself uncaused. This is God.

Here is Dr. Ross’s answer:

Dear not-yet-a-believer,

Your question is one of the most important any human being could ask—and one that most Christians are ill prepared to answer.

As I understand your query, if explaining the natural realm’s ability to support life, especially human life, requires extreme levels of complexity and design, then would not the cause of all this complexity and design need a cause that is even greater than Him? As Richard Dawkins puts it, the problem with Christianity is accounting for who “designed the Designer?”1

The question of who created God was the heart of my debate with Lewis Wolpert at Imperial College in London. (You can listen to the debate here). In a nutshell, I explained that, today, physicists across the philosophical spectrum acknowledge that the space-time theorems are unassailable. If the universe contains mass and if general relativity reliably describes the movements of bodies in the universe, the theorems are valid. Those theorems establish that space and time had a beginning at the origin of the universe. They imply that the causal agent of the universe is not subject to space and time—thus, that agent can create space-time dimensions at will.

Of course, any entity—such as the universe and everything subject to the laws and dimensions of the universe—that is constrained to a single dimension of time, where time cannot be stopped or reversed, must have a beginning. Ultimately, such entities must be traceable back to a creation event. However, an entity not constrained by time need not have been created.

The Bible declares in multiple passages that God created time (e.g., John 1:3; Colossians 1:16–17). Psalm 90 adds that God can arbitrarily compress or expand time as we know it. In my book Beyond the Cosmos (3rd edition), I include diagrams illustrating that this compression and expansion of time is only possible for beings with access to the equivalent of at least two dimensions of time. Scripture also declares that God has no beginning, no ending, and is not created (e.g., Psalm 90:2; Hebrews 7:3). These declarations could be true only of a Being who created time, rather than one who is subject to time.

Philosophers responding to Dawkins have pointed out that he made a category error. God is in a different category than the universe or humans in that He is not subject to the physical laws of the universe or to its space-time dimensionality.

For a more thorough answer to this question, I suggest reading Beyond the Cosmos. The book includes a description of scientific evidence for the existence of nine dimensions of space and for a Being who brought into existence ten space-time dimensions.

Sunday Devotional: I Believe

EyeOfGod-1Nicknamed the Eye of God, the Helix Nebula is a large planetary nebula located in the constellation Aquarius. Discovered sometime before 1824, this object is one of the closest to the Earth of all the bright planetary nebulae, a mere 700 light-years away. 

I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages,
God from God,
Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
consubstantial with the Father,
through Him all things were made.

For us men and for our salvation
He came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit
was incarnate of the Virgin Mary
and became man.
For our sake
He was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
He suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge and living and the dead
and His kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son
is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.

Peace and Love of Christ,

Breaking!! BLM Pulls Out Of Conflict With Clive Bundy

 

Folks we may have one the first round. Keep standing your ground!!

Nevada Cattle Rancher Wins ‘Range War’ With Feds

On Saturday, Clark County Sheriff Douglas C. Gillespie announced that the Bureau of Land Management would cease their persecution of cattle rancher Cliven Bundy. He also stated that Bundy’s cattle would be allowed to graze on the land.

In an emotional response, Bundy presented the Sheriff with an ultimatum, stating he had one hour to disarm the federal agency, to bring the arms to the protest site to be destroyed, and to remove their barricades.

Rest here…      http://www.infowars.com/breaking-cliven-bundy-to-meet-with-clark-co-sheriff/

Lexington and Concord Nevada Anyone?

Yesterday The good Dr. Eowyn posted about the Feds coming down on a rancher in Nevada Here. 

She mentioned some militia  members had arrived with more following. Here’s an update and some contact info so we can pound some phone lines in support and fill some inbox’s with email.

—————————————————————————————————-

Militias Are On Route to Help Cliven Bundy – Face Off With Feds: Will this be the Start of the 2nd American Revolution?

Written by,

 14 Hours Ago

An area just outside of the little town of Bunkerville, Nevada, with a population of around a thousand people, may go down in history. This little spot in the desert may be compared with Lexington, Massachusetts, the site of the “shot heard round the world” – the first shot fired in the American Revolution. Because it looks like the second American Revolution may start there…and soon.

It has been reported that tensions were running high outside of Bunkerville. It seems that the US government, in all of their infinite wisdom, has declared war on a cattle rancher named Cliven Bundy.

In a stand-off that has been likened to Ruby Ridge and Waco, the federal government has now deployed armed agents in a case of what the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has deemed “trespass cattle,” escalating a 20-year battle over grazing rights and what actually constitutes “public land” use in Southern Nevada.

Cliven Bundy, a 67-year-old rancher says his family has worked the 600,000-acre Gold Butte area since the late 1800s and that they were there well before the government’s Land Management Bureau ever came along. (source)

Armed federal officers have arrived to steal Bundy’s cattle and close down the land he is using. What’s more, they have declared a zone around the area to be free of the restrictions of the Constitution, specifically, the First Amendment right to assemble and speak freely. They’d like to keep their reprehensible actions quiet and out of the public eye. It’s really difficult to mow down a bunch of protesters ala Waco with the whole world watching.

Yesterday, tensions began to rise even further and numerous protestors were tazed and assaulted. (You can see the actions of those brave BLM officers on this video HERE).

It looks like tensions will rise even further because Americans have had enough.

Militias have been mobilised. It’s going to get real.

Bundy may be facing down a bunch of armed federal thugs but he’s going to be backed up by militia members from across the country.

This is the day that Patriots have been talking about and training for. They will not stand down.

CBS reports that militias from Texas, Montana, Utah, New Hampshire, and Florida will be standing with Bundy against the Bureau of Land Management.

If you aren’t a combatant, this doesn’t mean that you can’t participate in this revolt against tyranny. This is a call to action.

Here are the pertinent email addresses and phone numbers:

  • Bureau Of Land Management Phone Number: (202) 208-3801
  • Brian Sandoval Email Contact Form- http://gov.nv.gov/Contact/Governor/
  • Brian Sandoval – Carson City Phone # – (775) 684-5670
  • Brian Sandoval Las Vegas Phone # -(702) 486-2500
  • Senator Dean Heller Contact Form -
  • Phone #’s For Heller – Reno: 775-686-5770/ Las Vegas: 702-388-6605/ Washington: 202-224-6244
  • Sheriff Douglas Gillespi – (702) 828-3231 or (702) – 828 – 3111
  • Email: Sheriff@lvmpd.com

Share information in support of these people who refuse to stand idly by while theft, violence, and tyranny occurs at the hands of the government. If we all spread the word, there is no way that another Ruby Ridge or Waco can quietly occur. We can combat the disinformation spouted by the mainstream media by publishing REAL photos, REAL videos, and REAL accounts of what is happening. We can keep the communication open and tell the world what the United States government is doing to its own people.

Share this and other stories through email, through social media, through links in the comments sections of mainstream news sites. Whatever you do, don’t wait for someone else to take action. Now is the time to speak up for liberty. Make this story too viral for the mainstream to ignore. Do not allow these brave people staring down the barrel of a gun to do so without our support.

The Bureau of Land Management has picked up a snake by the tail, and it looks like that snake is going to bite.

UPDATE: Mac Slavo provides an update on the situation:

It is apparent that the Federal government was under the impression that they could simply move into the ranch land surrounding Bunkerville, NV and have their way with the property and livelihood of the Bundy family. What they didn’t count on was the outcry from Americans across the country. And now things may be headed to the next level. As Kim Paxton of The Daily Sheeple notes, citizen militias in several states have been called up. Many members of those organizations are taking up arms and are making their way to Nevada.

And it’s not just the citizen militias that are preparing to take action. The governor of Nevada has officially condemned the federal government’s actions, though he has yet to take any steps afforded to him under State law. Sheriff Richard Mack of Gilbert, Arizona has weighed in and calls the actions “terrorism.”

At last count there were some 200 federal agents from various agencies on the ground in Nevada and it appears that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of armed militia members will soon arrive to confront them.

The Federal government will no doubt step up their efforts, as they are facing the possibility of a widespread rebellion resulting from their actions against a private citizen whose only “crime” was to graze his cattle on the land his family has used for this purpose for over a century. It would not be at all surprising to see the President of the United States call up National Guard troops and more militarized law enforcement officials for fear of having this spiral out of control. A declaration of martial law to go along with already established First Amendment Areas is not out of the question.

We may well be on the cusp of a serious stand-off involving thousands of people. Keep in mind that most of them will be armed.

Given the circumstances, things could turn very bloody very quickly.

UPDATE 2: Bundy Family claims Feds are killing their cattle & protesters seem to have won a temporary victory against the Feds in this video update.

( Have to tell you the link to vid below is worth the watch in that it is not to often you see the Federales turn tale and leave.  LOL )

Meet Max, the cat who jumps *up* into a box

On Monday, you met Willie, the cat who’s a toilet-paper roller-upper.

Today, you’ll meet Max.

Cat owners know cats are fatally attracted to boxes: they just cannot resist jumping into an opened box.

Max, however, is unique in that he doesn’t jump into a box. He jumps up into and through a box! LOL

Jay-Z wears medallion of black supremacist group

Jay Z at Nets game, 4-1-2014Jay Z with wife Beyoncé at Nets game, April 1, 2014

See that huge medallion around the neck of rap mogul and Obama supporter Jay-Z?

The medallion has an 8-pointed star with the number 7 inside it.

The 8-pointed star is the symbol of a black racist sexist supremacist group called Five Percent Nation. The group’s beliefs are similar to Louis Farrakhan’s (black) Nation of Islam, but go even further.

Five Percent Nation maintains black men are gods, racially superior to all others, and that the Christian God is a lie concocted by evil devilish whites.

The number 7 is “god,” which means not only is Jay-Z a racist supremacist, he thinks he is god.

Gary Buiso reports for The New York Post, April 6, 2014, that “Last week, all eyes at the Barclays Center weren’t on Jay Z’s better half, Beyoncé — but on the coaster-size golden pendant swinging from the rapper’s neck as the couple sat courtside.”

The gaudy medallion worn by Jay-Z (and also New York Knicks basketball player Carmelo Anthony) is that of the Five Percent Nation (FPN). FPN believes that black people are the fathers and mothers of civilization, white men are the devil, the Christian god is nothing more than a ghost and only a small percentage of people (5%) really understand the world.

When asked if the group’s symbol — an eight-point star with the number 7 in the middle — held any meaning to him, Jay-Z shrugged, “A little bit.”

Michael Muhammad Knight, 36, a white author of two books on FPN who converted to Islam as a teenager, says Five Percenters believe that “the black man is God and created the universe” and is superior in every way — “physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more [morally] righteous naturally.”

In contrast, white people are “weak and wicked and inferior — basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected.” Knight wrote, “The first lesson I learned from the Five Percent was simple: F–k white people. Seriously. White people are devils.” (Which means Knight, who is white, believes he himself is a devil who should be “f-cked.” But I’m sure that logic escapes Knight.)

Knight says FPN’s beliefs about the races is more a statement about power rather than biology, “For me, it is about who is marked as privileged in the power relations of this society.” Knight calls FPN’s ideas “empowering.” He says, “Anytime someone is saying you have to accept your conditions of oppression and slavery and pray to an unseen god — that kind of god is just being used to keep people down and to keep people from looking to themselves as a solution to their problems. If there is a problem, no one will fix it for you, except yourself.”

FPN was founded in 1964 in Harlem by Clarence Smith, a former student of black Muslim Malcolm X who disagreed with the Nation of Islam over the nature of God. That’s because Clarence Smith thought he was god. Smith later changed his name to Allah, the Arabic word for god or supreme being. Not just Allah, Smith was known as Allah the Father.

Smith rejected the notion of a supernatural deity and instead believed that all black men had God in them and that black women were “earths” who took on a complementary yet subordinate role to their gods. (That would explain why Jay Z’s wife, Beyoncé, submissively called herself “Mrs. Carter” in her recent concert tour. Jay-Z‘s real name is Shawn Corey Carter.)

FPN calls the Christian God a “mystery God” concocted by 10% of the world’s population (whites) to control the other 85%.

10%+85%=95%. What about the remaining 5%?

Although Five Percenters don’t consider themselves Muslim, their name however comes from the Nation of Islam’s belief that 5 percent of humanity are “poor righteous teachers” who exist to enlighten the masses about the truth of existence. Members sometimes refer to themselves as “scientists” to drive home the search for truth. Members must learn the “Supreme Mathematics and Supreme Alphabet” — allegedly powerful tools to decipher the meaning of the universe but which are really superstitious numerology. In both, each letter and number represents a concept, for example, 1 is knowledge, 2 is wisdom, while A is Allah and B is be, or born. The number 7 on Jay Z’s pendant stands for God.

Some FPN followers take exception to those who transform their flag into a fashion accessory. Saladin Allah (another god!), a representative of the group’s upstate region told The Post, “Jay Z is not an active member — no one has vouched for him. It was always understood that you don’t wear the ­regalia if you don’t totally subscribe to the life.”

beyoncejayzobamanothereforthemJay-Z (l) makes the neo-Nazi “Quenelle” hand gesture with his bud Obama.

But then I can’t imagine why Jay Z needs anyone to “vouch” for him or why Five Percent Nation even should have rules. Since all black MEN (not women) are gods, they don’t need anyone’s stamp of approval (“vouching”) or rules. Afterall, rules are only for lesser people.

Hmm. Where have I seen that before?

I know, I know!

The Narcissistic Personality Disorder!

Last but not least, Jay-Z’s god is actually Satan. He has a song to “Lucifer” in his 2003 The Black Album. (See my post “Pop Culture Satanists“.) Of course, we’ll try to overlook Jay-Z’s (and all satanists’) illogic in believing in Lucifer, but not the God who created the fallen angel. And to think Mr. Carter thinks he’s among the godlike five percent of humanity who alone are “enlightened” and really understand the truth! LOL

Creation: Pine tree crosses

pinetree crossesFrom GardenGuides.com:

Pine trees begin growing in the spring. Some species of pine grow new shoots in the form of a crucifix in the days before Easter—late March or early April. Whether or not a pine tree produces shoots in the form of a crucifix depends on the species, the local weather and its geographical location.

The “cross” or lateral growth of the new pine tree shoots is not the same for all species. Most pine species have a double lateral growth and so do not resemble a crucifix. Loblolly pines, widespread in the southern United States, and ponderosa pines, found in the west, do produce new shoots in the form of crosses.

Botanist David Hershey states that pine trees have a natural cycle of growth. The trees begin growing in the spring, prosper during the summer, slow their growth in the fall, and stay dormant in the winter. Scientists do not know the precise reason why new shoots on these particular species of pine look like crosses.
