Church attendance reduces suicide risk by half

The recent spate of “celebrity” suicides by hanging — actor Robin Williams in 2014; fashion designer Kate Spade and “celebrity chef” Anthony Bourdain this month — are famous examples of the 25% increase in U.S. suicides since 1999.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) documented a steep rise in suicides in the United States between 1994 and 2014, among men and women and in all age groups between 10 and 74. Although women are still less likely than men to commit suicide, the gender suicide-gap is closing. Among women between 45 and 64 — the ages at which women are most likely to kill themselves — the rate of suicide in 2014 dramatically increased 80% from 1999.

Speculations abound about the suicides of Spade and Bourdain:

  • Were they depressed from relationship failures? –Spade and her mouse-mask wearing husband were separated; Bourdain might have been dumped by his satanic girlfriend Asia Argento.
  • Was it a case of auto erotic-asphyxiation?
  • Was Bourdain Arkancided (just because he said in a tweet that Hillary Clinton’s operatives harassed him for joining the #MeToo movement against criminally-prosecuted Hellywood mogul Harvey Weinstein?)

There is one thing that Williams, Spade and Bourdain all had in common: They did not have the Light of Christ. Williams and Bourdain were Jews; Spade, who graduated from a Catholic all-girls high school, was not observant.

St. Paul said in his Letter to the Ephesians 6:10-16:

Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power. Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens. Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground. So stand fast with your loins girded in truth, clothed with righteousness as a breastplate, and your feet shod in readiness for the gospel of peace. In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

A study by a team of researchers led by Tyler J. VanderWeele of Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, confirms the correctness of St. Paul’s injunction.

Published in the August 2016 issue of JAMA Psychiatry, “Association Between Religious Service Attendance and Lower Suicide Rates Among US Women,” the study found that mmidst the wave of despair and suicide, one group of women are bucking the national trend.

Melissa Healy reports for the Los Angeles Times that, using data from 1996 to 2010, the study found the following stunning facts:

  1. Compared with women who never participated in religious services, women who attended any religious service once a week or more were five times less likely to commit suicide. In a study population made up of 89,708 nurses aged 30 to 55, and dominated by women who identified themselves as either Catholic or Protestant, the suicide rate observed was about half that for U.S. women as a whole — only 36 of them committed suicide at some point in the course of 15 years.
  2. Which church, Protestant or Catholic, matters. Although Protestant women who worshiped weekly at church were far less likely to take their own lives than women who seldom or never went to church, Catholic women were even less likely — seven times less likely to commit suicide than Protestant women.
  3. How often one attends church also matters: Among especially devout Catholic women, suicides were non-existent. There was not a single suicide among the 6,999 Catholic women who said they attended Mass more than once a week.
  4. It’s not whether one is Christian; it’s about church attendance: The suicide-prevention effect of religion was clearly not a simple matter of group identity: Self-identified Catholics who never attended mass committed suicide nearly as often as did women of any religion who were not active worshipers.

The study’s authors concluded that church attendance is “a form of meaningful social participation” that buffers women against loneliness and isolation — both factors that are strongly implicated in depression and suicide — and that “Religion and spirituality may be an underappreciated resource that psychiatrists and clinicians could explore with their patients, as appropriate.”

Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, director of the medical ethics program at the University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine, and co-author of The Catholic Guide to Depression, said the lengthy duration of the 2016 study — women were asked about their religious attendance every two years starting in 1996 and then followed until 2010 — “suggests a causal relationship between religious practice and a significantly lower risk of suicide, especially among Catholics“:

“Religious convictions and practices can help people foster a sense of hope, even in the midst of major crises or adversities. Religious faith can help people find a sense of meaning and purpose even in suffering. It’s not our role to ‘prescribe’ religion… or proselytize to our patients. It is safe to assume that religious conviction and faith must be genuine and sincere if they are to provide the mental and physical health benefits that several studies have suggested. [But if patients are inclined to explore religion or spirituality,] doctors can encourage patients to explore such activities confident that religious practices will likely not harm, and may indeed, help, their patient’s mental health.”

The 2016 study confirms and adds to recent research on the potential benefits of religiosity, contrary to Sigmund Freud’s sneering denunciation of religious belief as the “universal obsessional neurosis of humanity.”

About Asia Argento

Was Anthony Bourdain out of his mind to trust her?

If you are like me, you had hardly ever heard the name, Asia Argento, until Anthony Bourdain was already dead. 

WARNING: I also don’t know the maker of this video, and cannot vouch for his accuracy or truthfulness.

It seems there is much more to this story than a suicide or a murder. Is Hillary involved? I have no idea.

Is the devil involved?
Yes. Definitely yes.

 

The dark side of Anthony Bourdain

Last Friday, June 8, 2018, we were told that Trump-hater celebrity-chef Anthony Bourdain, 61, host of CNN’s “Parts Unknown,” had died that morning in a French hotel of suicide. Bourdain allegedly hanged himself using the belt of his bathrobe.

Last September, Bourdain said he would give Trump poison if given the chance. In November, he said it’s great that in 70 years there won’t be any more white people, notwithstanding the fact that he himself was white, although many Jews curiously believe themselves to be a separate race, instead of “white”.

Some expressed sympathy for Bourdain, citing Alex Jones that Bourdain had recently “seen the light.” Others hint darkly that Bourdain might have been “Arkancided”. They point to Bourdain having joined his actress girlfriend Asia Argento in the #MeToo movement against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and, in so doing, allegedly triggered the ire of Hillary Clinton and her followers.

Last October 11, he tweeted that surely Hillary would have known of Weinstein’s sexual crimes. To which a Hillary representative replied, telling Bourdain to go “eat a scorpion.” That prompted Bourdain to tweet this on May 2, 2018 (source: TruePundit):

“…and I am in no way an HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton] fan. I’ve been on the receiving end of her operatives’ wrath. And it ain’t fun.”

Those who know him, however, say Bourdain was depressed. According to TMZ, Bourdain had been dumped by his girlfriend Asia Argento just days before the suicide:

Anthony was shooting his show in France this week — he’d been there for at least 4 days. However, Asia was back in Rome, strolling around with a French reporter named Hugo Clément. There were photos of them holding hands and hugging, but the Italian photographer who shot the pics pulled them off the market on the heels of Anthony’s death. It’s unclear if Anthony and Asia had broken up. If they did, there was no public announcement. Their last public appearance together was at an event was back in April in NYC.

Whatever that was on Bourdain’s mind, photos he’d posted to Instagram show a disturbing obsession with the macabre:

A pic (date unknown) of his best friend, French chef Eric Ripert, looking menacing in a blood-stained chef’s jacket. Ripert had found Bourdain’s body in the bathroom of Bourdain’s room in a hotel in France:

On February 16, 2014, a photo of bowls of raw blood soup:

On December 25, 2015, a pic of a Medieval skull-drilling gadget, which he called a “great gift”:

On February 14, 2016, a hand holding a human heart, drenched in blood. The pic was “liked” by 22,491 people:

On February 14, 2017, a blood-stained knife next to an excised heart:

On March 11, 2017, a pic of his girlfriend Asia Argento and a young girl in red shoes. According to free-lance investigative journalist Liz Crokin, red shoes signify pedophiles because the Illuminati uses The Wizard of Oz movie, in which Dorothy wore red shoes, to brainwash child sex slaves.

On June 3, 2017, a pic of his girlfriend drenched in blood, her mouth blood-smeared (from cannibalism?):

Pics of Argento making Illuminati hand-signs:

On July 15, 2017, a pic of himself and another man posing with a bottle of a baby preserved in formaldehyde:

On July 21, 2017, a painting of trepanning. Trepanning is the drilling of a hole into the human skull to treat intracranial diseases or to release pressure from blood build up. Perversely, trepanning is making a return as a cultural fad, like ingesting Tide pods:

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain thinks it’s great that in 70 years there won’t be any more white people

Anthony Bourdain is a “celebrity” chef who has a show on CNN (“Parts Unknown”) and on Food Network (“No Reservations”) that feature “celebrity” guest stars who often don’t have anything to do with food. What Bourdain does on his shows is political propaganda. See:

Below is a video clip from Bourdain’s Parts Unknown (S07E07), where he travels to Cologne, Germany to interview an obscure “celebrity chef” named René Stessl who, like Bourdain, fancies himself to be an “artist”. Instead of talk about food and cooking, Stessl pontificated about how the import of (Muslim) refugees is the “final solution” for racism in Germany, by race-mixing, so that in 70-80 years, there will longer be “white people” in Germany and the world — as if only white people are the source of racism.

Bourdain not just heartily agrees, he bemoans that it would take as long as 70-80 years.

Transcript:

Bourdain: “Germany has accepted somewhere in the neighborhood of a million refugees. How do you realistically welcome to Germany, we’re all gonna learn to live together, can it be done?”

Stessl: “It could be done, of course. But I hope that all the right-wing people will not develop and this is, for example, a job for an artist. Maybe we should go out — a hundred people with Nazi uniforms — and walks [sic] through the city. Maybe this kind of actions will just make the people remind on the time when our grandfathers did wrong. We really have to take care that we don’t fall back in this structures.”

Bourdain: “But we kind of are.”

Stessl: “We are on the way.”

Bourdain: “We’re well on the way…. Utopias.”

Stessl: “It’s a kind of utopia. Just the fact that the whole world will mix up with each other, that in, I don’t know, 70 or 80 years there will be no white people any more, only cappuccino-colored in the world.”

Bourdain: “This is the solution. Our only hope, our way out of this.”

Stessl: “Yes!”

Bourdain: “Our only hope is to fuck our way out of this. It’s gonna take some time, but it’s really the only way — this sort of Singapore model, where everybody’s so [racially] mixed up that you really don’t know who to hate because everybody’s so hopelessly intertwined. But we’re a long way from that.”

And there you have it — the Kalergi plan for white genocide.

Anthony Bourdain said he was raised without religion, and that his ancestors were Catholic on his father’s side and Jewish on his mother’s side.

Born in 1974 in Austria, little is known about René Stessl other than that he is a chef, painter, and performance artist (Judas Watch). Wikipedia does not have an entry on him. His website is here.

Obama: ‘ketchup is acceptable on hotdogs until age 8’

Pedophiles communicate with each other in code, to avoid being detected and apprehended.

This is on the authority of none other than the FBI. The FBI publication of January 31, 2007, (U) Symbols and Logos Used by Pedophiles to Identify Sexual Preferences, states:

“Pedophiles…are using various types of identification logos or symbols to recognize one another and distinguish their sexual preferences…. These symbols have been etched into rings and formed into pendants, and have also been found imprinted on coins.”

An undercover sting in 2013 in Mobile, Alabama, also provided a window into the secret world of coded language pedophiles use online. As an example, PTHC stands for “pre-teen hardcore”. (The Daily Dot)

Anthony Bourdain is a “celebrity” chef who has a show on Food Network called No Reservations that features celebrity guest stars.

According to a Dec. 8, 2016 fawning article, “Seven of Anthony Bourdain’s best celebrity guest stars,” on Australia’s SBS (Special Broadcasting Service):

“While in Hanoi, Vietnam, Tony [Bourdain] scored a sit-down, one-on-one date with President Barack Obama at an actual populated restaurant. Boy, off-camera secret service aside, it would it have been a lark to sit at that table.

During the meal, the two discuss the promo-worthy subject of ‘noodle-slurping’, fatherhood, and the nation of Vietnam, which was a surreal experience for Bourdain. He claims he hadn’t felt that nervous before a guest turned up since Iggy Pop.”

Oddly, the video on the SBS page about Bourdain and Obama is “unavailable”. Some enterprising netizen, however, found it on YouTube.

The video shows Obama and Bourdain seated in a Vietnamese noodle-shop. The two men first make a toast with bottles of beer. Obama says that as President, he rarely is able to sit in a restaurant with other patrons. Then the waitress brings their food. Bourdain tells Obama that according to Vietnamese etiquette, it is appropriate to slurp the noodles. Bourdain lauds Obama on his skill with chop sticks. Obama describes a favorite outdoors restaurant in Indonesia which overlooks tea fields. A river runs through the restaurant, and diners can pick the fish they want from the river and the restaurant would catch and fry the fish, and serve the fish with rice.

At this point, Bourdain says something completely non sequitur. He asks Obama (3:10 mark):

“Is ketchup on a hot dog ever acceptable?”

Obama answers:

“No, that’s one of those things like, well, let me put it this way, it’s not acceptable past age 8.

According to The Daily Sheeple and others on the Alt-Media, in pedophile-speak, “pizza” refers to a young girl, while “hotdog” refers to a young boy. Urban Dictionary says “ketchup” is a euphemism for the illegal psychoactive drug ecstasy or MDMA.

And so, one interpretation of Bourdain’s non sequitur question and Obama’s cryptic reply is that they’re really referring to whether it’s acceptable to give mind-altering drugs to young boys. Unless there is another explanation for why the President of the United States of America would talk about the acceptability of putting ketchup on a hotdog, and specifying age 8 as the limit.

What do you think?

Attention Secret Service: CNN host Anthony Bourdain says he would give Trump poison if given the chance

bourdain-and-obama

Bourdain dining with Obama


From NY Post: Anthony Bourdain, host of “Parts Unknown” on CNN, said last week that he would poison Donald Trump if the celebrity chef was asked to cater a peace summit between the President and Kim Jong Un.“Hemlock,” Bourdain simply replied when asked by TMZ what he would serve Trump and the North Korean dictator.

Hemlock is a poisonous plant that has been used as a method of execution. The video was published by TMZ last week, but is just now gaining attention.

When reached by Fox News, Bourdain, apparently joking, said that he meant to say “kale” instead of hemlock (riiiiiiight).

CNN recently fired Kathy Griffin for posing with a bloody head made to look like Trump. The liberal network also cut ties with “Believer” host Reza Aslan after his anti-Trump rhetoric on Twitter was widely criticized. It’s unclear if Bourdain would suffer any consequences for his rhetoric, but it’s worth noting that “Parts Unknown” is significantly more popular than programs hosted by Griffin and Aslan.

This isn’t the first time the “Parts Unknown” host has spoken negatively about Trump. Bourdain, who famously dined with Barack Obama on an episode of “Parts Unknown,” told TheWrap last year that he wouldn’t eat with then-candidate Trump if given the chance.

“Absolutely f—ing not,” Bourdain said. “I’ve been a New Yorker most of my life … I would give the same answer that I would have given 10 years ago, when he was just as loathsome.”

Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” is a CNN original series in which the celebrity chef travels the world to showcase food and culture. He also told TMZ that he wouldn’t be interested in filming an episode in North Korea because “most of the population are starving.”

As for Bourdain’s thoughts on Kim Jong Un, the CNN star called him a “chubby, evil little f–k.”

CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Why no one trusts the media: They are now laser-focused on how Trump eats his steak

Judge Judy shakes head rolls eyes

From Popsugar: It’s no secret that Donald Trump’s diet is not exactly nutritionist recommended, but the president’s steak-eating habits in particular have people talking more and more lately. Trump prefers to order his steak well done, and at a dinner at the BLT Steakhouse, the restaurant inside the Trump Hotel in Washington DC, he reportedly dipped it in ketchup, too.

“The president ordered a well-done steak. An aged New York strip. He ate it with ketchup as he always does,” a waiter at the restaurant said, according to the Independent Journal Review’s report of Trump’s dinner at his steakhouse.

And now Anthony Bourdain isn’t the only one judging Trump for his steak preferences. Not only are people calling Trump out on Twitter, but some people are also pointing out that Trump’s habits might speak to a larger mentality.

Eater has analyzed Trump’s steak habits even further in an op-ed about why the way Donald Trump eats his steak matters, saying, “A person who won’t eat his steak any doneness but well is a person who won’t entertain the notion that there could be a better way. A person who refuses to try something better is a person who will never make things good.” The opinion piece points out that this eating habit might imply a fear of risk-taking and adaptability.

What do you think about the whole conversation: are people taking it too far, or does the fact that Trump orders his steak well done (with ketchup) bother you?

Here’s my answer: Keep up this insane baloney and you’re going to have another four years of a Trump presidency to whine about!
