Dennis Guth Iowa State Senator
On April 17, 2013, at the beginning of the Iowa Senate workday, the most junior Senator from Klemme, Dennis Guth, a man of the soil but without serious learning and no solid education beyond an initial degree in agriculture. He has no training in medical, psychological or psychiatric sciences, or in any of the social sciences. Guth is void of any attachment to the rubrics of education outside of elementary agriculture that now is decades old.
A freshman Senator, he has taken the stage to preach his private agenda, calling for the advantage of “points of personal privilege” to make horrific comments about the LGBT community.”” that he has no personal knowledge or nor any experience with...Read More
People read scripture as if each story enabled them to obtain eternal life--but at what cost. A literal reading is enough to scare most people away from religion, yet pastors, priests, rabbis and others see the Old Testament as a guide for life: one filled with rape, pillage, and holocaust.
Mitt Romney has bullied males and females all of his life, his last salvo being his declaration during the Presidential Debates that he had binders of women; but before then, he bullied those he assumed to be gay at Cranbrook School (for Boys) in Michigan, and later as a Bishop in the Mormon church bullied women openly. What is behind his psychology--I argue that he was bullied at home and within the Mormon church.
Pastor Charles Worley of Maiden NC and German leader Adolf Hitler are identical. Both demanded a final solution. Both called on their God, and quoted the Bible, to help them destroy an entire people. Both had devoted followers eager to shed blood.
Charles Worley's rant against LGBT people and his desire to establish a concentration camp where all LGBT could die has met with resistence, but not from members of the clergy. Few want to read Leviticus 18:22 as it was written and within context. Today's evangelical clergy are identical to the evangelicals in the Third Reich.
Education in Perú exists only marginally. Various accrediting bodies rank Peru as the worse nation on the planet to obtain an education: that students have little interest or sense of responsibility, that the government denies funds for adequate buildings, teaching resources and payment for good teachers, and that neither teachers nor students have a sense of responsibility or urgency in acquiring a solid education. This is the result of the stranglehold of organized religion in Peru.
There are two verses in the Gospel of Matthew that are directed to tombs opening, dead are brought back to life waiting for Jesus. Today we call such phenomena "zombies" and there are theologians who discount their existence, but in the South Baptist group of seminaries, teachers, researchers, and students are told to accept their existence as the fulfillment of the prophecy of Jesus. The question is if this is an isolated case in theological history or one more plagiarism fitted into the Bible.
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef: "Goyim were born only to serve us Jews." 2010
According to the 90-year-old racist Rabbi Ovadia Yosef (born Abdullah Youssef (Hebrew: עובדיה יוסף) on September 23 1920, Basra, Iraq and now living in Jerusalem is a Mizrahi Haredi rabbi), the head of Shas’ Council of Torah Sages and a senior Sephardi adjudicator, the sole purpose of non-Jews is to serve Jews...Read More
Hate is fequently hidden behind the stain of "religious freedom" and expresses itself in bullying: not just one child hitting another, but teenagers and adults badgering others into committing suicide in an effort to reshape the world in the image wanted by the Koch Brothers of Kansas. Bullying costs millions of lives each year, and now states are fighting back passing strong anti-bullying laws, but the Liberty Institute and Tea Party, organizations created and funded by the Koch Brothers, are fighting hard to gain control of the government and Libertarian idealism that enriches only a few.
For centuries hell was cursed and used as a curse against those who did not agree with a rigid religious mistranslation of a single word. The modern-day Hell is Scandinavian in origin (first used in Iceland) and has no relationship to the word used in the Bible, Qur'an or other religious literature. It is the abuse of the word, its mistranslation and misinterpretation that has cost millions their lives and today is one of the roots of suicides among young teenagers in the USA and other "faith-based" nations. What can be done to stop this epidemic?
