Over one million suicides occur each year. While many are the exit strategy of those suffering an incurable and painful disease, there is a growing number of suicides among preteens and teenagers--especially in the USA and in the Sixth Congress District of Minnesota that is represented by Michele Bachmann. No state is exempt, but a new thread is appearing: bullying those weaker than their opponents, and in the name of religion or "freedom" to express an opinion even if it compells children to end their lives. The greatest damage comes from evangelical Christians and the notion of a "holy life" style--or face the threat of going to hell. Why do people believe in this concept and when does one reach the breaking point and stop contemplating suicide and take action?
As the economic well-being of any people plunges, starvation and unemployment skyrockets, many will seek out demigods and dictators or turn to religion for temporary euphora. Some will argue that bad times are the sign of End Times and an Apocalypse is near. Is the Apocalypse fact or fiction? Here is the judgment of history, texts, and scholars.
Every time there is a terrorist action broadcast or printed, western people think it is done by Muslims. Statistics show that most terrorist attacks are done by non-Muslim people, with most taking place in the USA and India. How does the US military compare with the Christian paramilitary groups in North Ireland, India, Uganda, Nigeria and around the world?
Anders Behring Breivik of Norway was strongly influenced by the Tea Party / GOP of the USA and Unabomber Theodore John Kaczynski, leading him to killing and wounding more than 90 people: the majority being children. Breivik claimed that he had to do it to restore God's order on earth, where women were supposed to be subordinate to men, proclaiming himself to be a born-again evangelical Christian.
Pat Robertson issues prophecies every year: condemning unwed mothers, those who divorce, LGBT people, welfare recipients, Democrats, the US Supreme Court, Disney World, and liberals. He incorrectly cites his Bible, shows a total lack of exegetical training, and rants as if he were Bradlee Dean of Junkyard Prophets. While his vast fortune is not completely known, it may push $1 billion and he gained it by working closely with dictators, thieves and rapists, but few want to expose this man for who and what he is.
Michele Bachmann has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from scammers, ponzi predators, common and uncommon thieves, and is the delight of the Tea Party which uses the same slogans as the KKK and Nazi movements: from black-face to demands that government shuts down. The focus of much of this hate is on labor, but labor costs have gone down, production up, and the USA enjoys one of the lowest inflationary rates in the world. Bachmann continues to lie.
Bradlee Dean, a the Junkyard Prophet, has endorsed every hate-filled candidate who has contributed time and money to his cause to stomp out and execute all LGBT people: Michele Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty, Tom Emmers and more. Although he operates a 501(c)3 charity, that by IRS code cannot endorse any candidate, he openly admits he is defying the laws of the USA on the demand of his god. He is broadly supported, and while he hates Islam, applauds the existence of Iran and their work to eradicate and end homosexuality in their nation along with women who seek personal freedom.
