"Men never commit evil so fully and joyfully as when they do it for religious convictions." Blaise Pascal

Blaise Pascal was a Christian. He knew that idolatry (making up false gods--a violation of the First and the Second of the Ten Commandments) has historically been the basis for great evils.

Evils such as the Spanish Inquisition--Roman Catholics killing Christians for their faith in Jesus, rather than in the Roman Catholic Church.

And Adolf Hitler--committing atrocities in the name of God. But both fall way short of atheism, which (through atheistic communism) resulted in the slaughter of 110,000,000 human beings.

My Outline for a Solution for Gaza: By Moshe Feiglin

Ultimatum – One warning from the Prime Minister of Israel to the enemy population, in which he announces that Israel is about to attack military targets in their area and urges those who are not involved and do not wish to be harmed to leave immediately. Sinai is not far from Gaza and they can leave. This will be the limit of Israel’s humanitarian efforts. Hamas may unconditionally surrender and prevent the attack.
Attack – Attack of the entire ‘target bank’ throughout the Gaza Strip with the IDF’s maximum force (and not a tiny fraction of it) with all the conventional means at its disposal. All the military and infrastructural targets will be attacked with no consideration for ‘human shields’ or ‘environmental damage’. It is enough that we are hitting exact targets and that we gave them advance warning.
Siege – Parallel to the above, a total siege on Gaza. Nothing will enter the Strip. Israel, however, will allow exit from Gaza. (Civilians may go to Sinai, fighters may surrender to IDF forces).
Defense – Any place from which Israel or Israel’s forces were attacked will be immediately attacked with full force and no consideration for ‘human shields’ or ‘environmental damage’.
Conquer – After the IDF will complete the softening of the targets with its aerial and long distance fire-power, it will send in infantry to conquer the entire Gaza Strip, using all the means necessary to minimize any harm to our soldiers, with no other considerations.
Elimination- The GSS and IDF will thoroughly eliminate all armed enemies from Gaza. The enemy population that is innocent of wrong-doing and separated itself from the armed terrorists will be treated in accordance with international law and will be allowed to leave. Israel will generously aid those who wish to leave.
Sovereignty – Gaza is part of our Land and we will remain there forever. Liberation of parts of our land forever is the only thing that justifies endangering our soldiers in battle to capture land. Subsequent to the elimination of terror from Gaza, it will become part of sovereign Israel and will be populated by Jews. This will also serve to ease the housing crisis in Israel. The coastal train line will be extended, as soon as possible, to reach the length of the Gaza Strip. According to polls, most of the Arabs in Gaza wish to leave. Those who were not involved in anti-Israel activity will be offered a generous international emigration package. Those who choose to remain will receive permanent resident status. After a number of years of living in Israel and becoming accustomed to it, contingent on appropriate legislation in the Knesset and the authorization of the Minister of Interior on a case by case basis, those who personally accept upon themselves Israel’s rule, substance and way of life of the Jewish State in its Land, will be offered Israeli citizenship.

All bolding mine.

One facet of demon possession is a desire to be nude.

Lady Checkmate:
True. I hadn't considered that. Very telling.
I'm Christian and not Roman Catholic (we pray for them), but what that woman did was clearly persecution and unnecessary hatred; which, we're familiar with as Christians deal with persecution here in the states regularly:

Lady Checkmate's headline: "Alabama investigates voter fraud after out-of-state man says he voted for Doug Jones"

I live in Alabama, I did not vote for Roy Moore during the primaries, I did not like Doug Jones we were between a rock and a hard place we really had no choice.

Lady Checkmate:
You didn't vote for Roy Moore based on lies from the alt-left? Even after one of them admitted she lied and falsified "evidence"? smh.

No I did not believe the lies it wasn't that I just don't think Roy Moore needs to be a US senator.Kay Ivey made a mistake she should not have had a special election she should have just went ahead and appointed someone to fill out the remainder of sessions time.

Lady Checkmate:
So you would have an ungodly person lead you rather than a godly man of wisdom. Rhetorical. Disappointed, but not surprised. The alt-left depends on wishy-washy religious people who claim Christianity, conservatism and patriotism, but do not know God nor His word and will go(vote) anyway the wind blows at the drop of a hat - actually vote against righteousness, what's best for America (SMH) and bow/submit to unrighteousness. In fact, that's the group the alt-left looks to for support more than any others. If we could get rid of RINOs, religious hypocrites, etc., we could accomplish a lot more (faster) in the world's system.
My hope remains in God and we hasten His return.
Merry Christmas and enjoy your day!

Quote# 135512

Sorry Paul but the true symbol of "delivery from evil," is what God achieved in Noah's time and at Sodom and Gomorrah!

During the time of The Flood, God found that only one (flawed no doubt) family was worth saving from worldwide accepted and performed practices so evil, God could not but respond and at the time of Abraham and his beloved nephew, Lot, there were none worth saving in those two depraved homosexual communities.

In fact, Lot's own wife was unable to resist the pull of evil, thus was destroyed as well!

Look to your own religion's true Torah teachings for the definitions of true evil, not your so-called "Reform Judaism" for they have long ago, sold out to evil and all it entails.

Many so-called "mainstream Christians" have embraced those same practices and even celebrate them and installed those practicing evil have been set up as "priests and pastors" in their Satanic temples!

In the New Testament, Paul tells us that even those who do not practice homosexuality but turn their heads or worse yet, welcome as brothers and attend their "celebrations," are condemned along with them.

God makes no allowances for sin, even in a pink hat!

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer quoted Martin Luther King, Jr.'s iconic "I Have a Dream" speech to argue in favor of discrimination against gays.

Citing King's line that he dreamed that one day his children would "live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character," Fischer argued that discrimination based on behavior is justified and absolutely appropriate ... and, as such, "you begin to see the implications when it comes to homosexuality because you're dealing there with issues of content of character and you are dealing with issues of behavior and conduct and it's perfectly appropriate to discriminate against immoral conduct":

This morning I posted some horrific clips of thousands of people attacking Gay Pride marchers in Tblisi, Georgia who had been protected by police before being shipped from the area in buses that were surrounded and assaulted with fists and objects.

At least 17 people have been injured in the violence, Radio Free Europe reports.

One of the antigay activists, Zaza Davitaia, explained why he was against the rally taking place.

"I give my support to those who are gathered here. We are against a rally that contradicts our Georgian morals and traditions," Davitaia said. "[Gay-rights campaigners] receive financial support from some organizations abroad and they wanted to hold a demonstration against Georgian morals."

There were many Orthodox priests among the antigay demonstrators. One of them, Reverend Ioanne, said he wanted to stop LGBT activists from furthering their agenda.

"It's unacceptable in any way, especially today," he said. "It's a plan by some forces, who test our patience, to force us to make a mistake so they can act according to their program."

Twelve were hospitalized, according to Amnesty, including three police officers and a journalist.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Most glaring in this vicious attack against the nation of Israel is the fact that Britain also voted against President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, putting the ‘special relationship‘ between the UK and the US into serious jeopardy. Jerusalem is the stone that will grind all nations who come against her to powder. This is why God allowed Trump to become president, to begin the chain of events that will lead to the time of Jacob’s trouble and the rise of Antichrist. But the Rapture of the Church comes first…

At one point, the American Psychiatric Association once declared homosexuality a mental disorder. They would try and cure if our homosexuality. Hocd sounds just like that.

In fact, I don't trust anything the DSM says. The people who say they got hocd think there is something inherently wrong with homosexuality.

I am sick of people doing this kind of stuff. There is no such thing as hocd. These people are homophobic homosexuals. Period.

(Note: This is in the middle of his lecture where he teaches that Original Sin is unbiblical and than drops this gem)

Homosexuals Are Not Born Homosexuals

Homosexuals often cover and excuse their evil acts of perversion by saying they were born homosexuals. And if the teaching is true that men are born with a sinful nature, homosexuals are right to say they were born homosexuals. For they were born homosexuals if they were born sinners. Also they are right to excuse their evil acts of perversion. For if they were born sinners, they were born homosexuals; and if they were born homosexuals they can no more be blamed for their evil acts of perversion than the brute beasts can be blamed for being born brute beasts. Likewise the alcoholic cannot be blamed for his drinking if it is true he was born with the "disease of alcoholism." In fact the murderer, the rapist, and all other sinners have a perfect and legitimate excuse for all their sins if they were born with a sinful nature. But God never excuses the murderer or the drunkard or the rapist or the homosexual or any other sinner for his sins. For God created all men with a good nature, and for men to sin they must go against their nature: they must sin against nature. All sin is a corruption of man's nature, it is a perversion of man's nature. It is rebellion against our nature--it is rebellion against the "law of God written in our hearts" and against the God who has written his law in our hearts. No man is born a sinner. No man is born with the "disease of alcoholism." No man is born a homosexual:

"Even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature." Romans 1:26
"Also the men leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lusts one toward another." Romans 1:27

"Neither shalt thou lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion." Leviticus 19:22-23

"God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions." Ecclesiastes 7:29

The miscreants in the government are a bunch of selfish, lowlife, sack of cunts who don't care about the people, especially Incels, even though they consistently spout how they have the peoples best interest. Rather than helping disabled incel men, they rob us by forcing us to pay them tax - and for what? What is the government actually doing to help us better our predicament? I'll tell you: absolutely nothing. They don't provide us free plastic surgery, they don't provide us a partner, they don't provide us sex, they don't provide us tax benefits, they don't add "Lookism" as a hate crime, they don't stand against the dipshits who mock and shame us consistently but god forbid when someone mocks a bitch for wanting to get an abortion - all hell breaks lose.

Apart for Incels, here are the people the government helps using our hard earned money: the unemployed waste of spaces, useless single mothers, marriage partners, disabled people (apparently Incels aren't included even though Inceldom is a disability), old people, homeless people and degenerate drug addicts. These groups of people get all the fucking help and benefits they want. thanks to the money we provide them. Yet, here I am, destined to suffer with no hope at sight, not even a single shred of sympathy is thrown at my side. There is literally no greater injustice than this.

Please don’t take modesty lightly. As your brother in Christ I value the relationship that I will have with my wife someday. When I am tempted because of you I lose a part of myself that I am trying to save for her. When I’m tempted because of you I become that much more accepting of the perversions in the world. When you remain pure and modest, my life is made so much easier. Instead of watching to ensure that I don’t sin I can focus on you as a person and fellow follower of Christ. I appreciate modesty more than you’ll ever know. Please, show respect of yourself and of me and be modest.

Quote# 135496


[The whole review is dumb and should be examined as bad, disingenuous criticism, this submission is just highlighting the more ideologically-charged nonsense]

Pretty much everything about The Last Jedi is a conscious slap in the face to Star Wars’ white male fans. For example, all of the leading generals in the Resistance are women, including Princess General Leia (Carrie Fisher), which explains why they went from running the galaxy in the previous movie to being reduced to a handful of ships in this one. All of the First Order’s soldiers and generals save one are white men, while the Resistance is staffed entirely by non-whites and women, with the exception of Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac).

Poe is by far the most interesting character in the movie, even considering how the script goes out of its way to shit on him. You can practically hear the writers muttering, “Fuck you, toxic masculinity!” every time he’s on screen. Despite being forward-thinking and courageous, Poe is constantly slapped down by his female superiors for being too “hot-headed.” For example, despite his bravery in taking out one of the First Order’s cruisers at the beginning of the movie, Leia demotes him for being “reckless.”

Later on in the movie, after Leia falls into a coma after miraculously surviving being blasted into open space (don’t ask), Poe discovers that her replacement, the purple-haired (yes, I’m serious) HR lady Holdo (Laura Dern) is planning to evacuate the Resistance’s last cruiser into unarmed transports, a suicidal and cowardly move. He intelligently proclaims a mutiny, only for Leia to side with Holdo, whose plan ends up getting all but two dozen members of the Resistance killed. Heckuva job, Holdy!

The film’s C-plot, starring Finn (John Boyega), is equally insipid. Frustrated with HR lady Holdo’s complete inability to lead, Finn teams up with Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran), a communist Montagnard with Down syndrome, to find a codebreaker who can keep the First Order from tracking the Resistance through hyperspace. They go to the resort planet of Canto Bight and literally start murdering people for the crime of being rich. This is Ghostbusters–tier dumb.

But none of this compares to how The Last Jedi rapes the character of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). The main plot follows Rey (Daisy Ridley), the Mary Sue feminist street urchin, as she tries to convince Luke to help the Resistance and train her to use the Force. Luke initially refuses, whining about how the Jedi “deserve” to end, before reluctantly agreeing to Rey’s demands. Hamill’s performance is embarrassingly bad and Luke’s character arc is a sick joke, rivaling how The Force Awakens depicted Han Solo as a deadbeat Peter Pan.

One good thing about The Last Jedi is that Rey is given far less screen time then in The Force Awakens. She’s just as smarmy, unlikable, and unrealistic—her bizarre telepathic dialogues with antagonist Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) are a case in point—but this is still an improvement. Unfortunately, the addition of SJW masturbation fantasies like Rose and Holdo—who I’m pretty sure was given purple hair as a deliberate middle finger to the fans—drowns out this positive move.


Finally, General Leia somehow manages to completely evade responsibility for Kylo Ren falling to the dark side of the Force, even though she’s his mother. The plots of both The Last Jedi and The Force Awakens have Darth Bugman focusing all his rage on Han Solo (his father) and Luke Skywalker, with Leia somehow skating off. And despite the fact that Leia’s son is the second-in-command of the First Order—meaning she is directly responsible for the galaxy being plunged into war—nobody has a problem with her serving as one of the Resistance’s senior leaders.


The central problem with the new Star Wars movies—or revivals of any classic franchise, for that matter—is that contemporary filmmakers don’t understand what made the originals good. Star Wars was a product of the 1970’s: an epic tale of good vs. evil, drawing on cultural motifs familiar to Americans of the time. Bugmen like Rian Johnson or J.J. Abrams can see the surface elements of Star Wars, but without being immersed in the cultural milieu that birthed it, the best they can do is high-budget fan fiction with SJW nonsense drizzled on top.

That’s all The Force Awakens or The Last Jedi are: cosplay with CGI. The X-wings and lightsabers and aliens may look like the ones in the original trilogy, but the heart and soul aren’t there. In their place is poor writing, left-wing agitprop, and dumb jokes. The Force Awakens was dull and boring, but The Last Jedi will leave you longing for the earnestness of Jar Jar Binks. Yes, it’s that bad.

The irony is that Kylo Ren’s nihilistic mantra of “let[ting] the past die,” while completely inappropriate for a Star Wars movie, is precisely how modern moviegoers should treat the franchise itself. Star Wars is dead, nerds. It’s not coming back. It’s time to take it behind the woodshed and put a bullet in its brain. The original movies were great and some of the video games were pretty good, but the monkey’s dead and the show is over.

Even the satanist CNN admits that demon possession is real!

Christians are well aware that anything that’s not of Christ is of satan. The Christian Bible teaches this fact in Matthew 12:30, and multitude of other verses. As such we know that CNN is spiritually false. Yet even these pagans admit to the fact that demons exist and demon possession is real!

In their article, partially presented below, they tell a story of a secular doctor that works with Catholic exorcists. In reading that, we must always keep in mind that Catholics are not Christians, and are therefore satanists. It is not surprising that CNN will try to promote their beliefs even though their exorcisms are of Beelzebub (Matthew 12:27). We must not be deceived by their doublespeak, but we can use this article in reaching heathens for Christ, showing them how even pagan establishments accept the fact that demons are working their evil ways in this world.

(CNN)A small group of nuns and priests met the woman in the chapel of a house one June evening. Though it was warm outside, a palpable chill settled over the room.
As the priests began to pray, the woman slipped into a trance — and then snapped to life. She spoke in multiple voices: One was deep, guttural and masculine; another was high-pitched; a third spouted only Latin. When someone secretly sprinkled ordinary water on her, she didn’t react. But when holy water was used, she screamed in pain.
“Leave her alone, you f***ing priests,” the guttural voice shouted. “Stop, you whores. … You’ll be sorry.”
You’ve probably seen this before: a soul corrupted by Satan, a priest waving a crucifix at a snarling woman. Movies and books have mimicked exorcisms so often, they’ve become clichés.
The 1973 film “The Exorcist” shaped how many see demonic possession.
But this was an actual exorcism — and included a character not normally seen in the traditional drive-out-the-devil script.
Dr. Richard Gallagher is an Ivy League-educated, board-certified psychiatrist who teaches at Columbia University and New York Medical College. He was part of the team that tried to help the woman.
Fighting Satan’s minions wasn’t part of Gallagher’s career plan while he was studying medicine at Yale. He knew about biblical accounts of demonic possession but thought they were an ancient culture’s attempt to grapple with mental disorders like epilepsy. He proudly calls himself a “man of science.”
Yet today, Gallagher has become something else: the go-to guy for a sprawling network of exorcists in the United States. He says demonic possession is real. He’s seen the evidence: victims suddenly speaking perfect Latin; sacred objects flying off shelves; people displaying “hidden knowledge” or secrets about people that they could not have possibly have known.

Quote# 135490

I am 19 years old and I want to tell you about my healing. I am talking about a serious problem – homosexuality. I want to show that God does heal wounds and inclinations that seem incurable.

When I was a boy in high school, I was like everyone else. I had girlfriends, even steady girlfriends. I went out with one girl for a year and a half. I really felt I was in love with them all. But deep down I felt something else – something that terrified me. I felt an attraction to men. At first, these were just “innocent” fantasies. Later on – like so many young people today – I began experiencing problems with purity. I masturbated and fantasized about boys. I also looked at gay pornography. Once I even had oral sex. I won’t go into details, since that is not what this is about. Now when I think about my past, I feel nothing but loathing for what I did, but I know that it is only in describing what I felt and the change that took place in me that I can truthfully bear witness to God’s mercy.

I feel disgust at what I did, but not at myself, since it is Satan who condemns and accuses me. He is the one who tells us we are worthless and hideous in the sight of God. Even though something may be disgusting in God’s sight, He does not condemn us. What God does do is call us to our senses. He invites us to repent, since by such behavior we only condemn ourselves. “In the same way the men give up natural sexual relations with women and burn with passion for each other. Men do shameful things with each other, and as a result they bring upon themselves the punishment they deserve for their wrongdoing” (Rom 2:27). “Do not fool yourselves; people who are immoral or who worship idols or are adulterers or homosexuals… – none of these will possess God’s kingdom” (1 Cor 6:9).

By my sinful actions I was offending not only God but also my girlfriend who knew nothing of all this, and of course myself. What made the scandal worse was that all this time I was part of a Christian group. But perhaps this very thing saved my life. It was at these meetings that I really got to know God. Reading the Gospels, I learned that Jesus heals all wounds – including homosexuality. Reading further in the First Letter to the Corinthians, we see this at once: “Some of you were like that. But you have been purified from sin; you have been dedicated to God; you have been put right with God by the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Cor 6:11).

These words gave me hope. God’s purpose in giving us the commandments is to make our journey to heaven easier, not harder! His ordinances are consistent with our human nature. I am therefore absolutely convinced that homosexuality is a disordered attraction – a wound, and not love at all. Coming to this understanding – by no means easy for me – was my first step toward healing.

Here I would like to address all those who wrestle with homosexual tendencies. Do not to fall for the lie that homosexuality is natural! Having struggled with these tendencies myself, I know how tempting this lie is. I am not writing this to scare you but because God has freed me from an addiction to sin and I want you to enjoy this freedom as well. If you find yourself trapped in homosexual behavior, I ask one thing of you: that right after you finish reading this letter you go to Confession. Do it even if this means that for a time you have to spend two hours every third day in the confessional! God wants you to be happy, and homosexuality is a great obstacle to it. You hear Christ telling you this just as most certainly you feel it within yourself. You know you want to be free of your addiction. You want to change, but you keep falling back into sin. Never give up the struggle!

The apostle Peter kept falling too. When he wished to walk on the water, he sank beneath the waves. Three times he denied Jesus, even though he swore before his Master’s death that he would never betray Him. But Peter was great precisely because he always picked himself up again. The number of times you fall, the number of times you look lustfully at a man is not what counts. What is important is your desire to change, to be healed, to stand before God and say, “My Lord, I know I am but a worm in your eyes. And yet this worm is yours. And so I beg you to show me your mercy and heal me. You see that I fall, yet I want to get up again and keep going – towards you, my Lord Jesus, my Savior.”

If you are unable to admit your weakness or to feel remorse, pray that you may feel it. Ask God to pour the grace of repentance into your heart. Remember, it is always Satan who condemns you. Even though it has been a year since my healing, Satan still accuses me; he continually reminds me of the person I was. He does this because he has lost the battle and God’s mercy has won. Scripture consoles us with God’s word: “When anyone is joined to Christ, he is a new being; the old is gone, the new has come” (2 Cor 6: 17) God created us to be holy. Jesus desires our conversion and does everything He can to bring this about in us. He is limited only by our freedom. So ask God to heal your heart and so enable you to entrust yourself entirely to His will. Even though you may not know where you are going, give yourself wholly to Jesus, for He is the Way and the Life.

If you have already embarked on the journey of healing – this may be a very long journey! – remember this: Jesus never, ever, condemns you. When you stumble, He offers you His hand. Do not forget Mary either. She is your Mother too. She wants you to be happy. Happiness is not the freedom of this world but freedom in God. To be happy is to enjoy God’s freedom and His love, and these work miracles. If you hear condemnation in your heart, it is the voice of Satan; he is afraid he is losing you. But do not be afraid yourself! Go to Holy Mass as often as possible, go to Confession immediately after each relapse, adore Christ, ask the Holy Spirit for the gift of freedom, and pray the Holy Rosary. Recent experience tells me Satan fears blessed objects. So carry a rosary, crucifix or holy picture in your wallet. Fight the good fight for God’s freedom, for cleansing, for healing, for liberation from sin. You will be amazed how surely God will lead you. And He will teach how to truly love a woman – with His own love.

So here’s wishing you devout praying and a steadfast battle – with God at your side. May He fortify all those who wish to make a clean break with homosexuality. May He open the eyes of those who have hardened their hearts. May they come to know the Merciful God and by the grace of Jesus and prompting of the Holy Spirit immerse themselves in His Divine Mercy.

Innocent Sheep and Arrogant Goats

February 6, 2012

Life is full of ambiguity followed by curiosity. As the generations go by, the world is changing vastly and rapidly. With all the technology, and money that humans are stumbling upon, they drift farther and farther away from God. This may be an understood and acknowledged fact, or an underestimated superfluous notion, but either way, God is not in the picture like He should be, in today’s society. More people are branching away from Christianity and becoming arrogant goats who gallivant around the world ion their high horses.

It is a true shame and a hindrance to every Christian who is fighting the current. To those of you who are lost; I pray one day you are found. God wants us all to be saved and be with Him in Heaven. However, this is not the case in regards to people and their pompous mentalities.

“Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited (Romans 12:16)”. People forget to do this. Those who accumulate a lot of money and wealth get consumed by it all. They forget about God and eventually lose sight of the light altogether. These people then marry and have families. Their children will be born, not knowing God and Jesus; being indifferent to religion and “tolerant” of all facets of spirituality. This is how you get atheists, and those who do witchcraft; all Godless rituals, rooted from evil.

The most unfortunate part about this is the fact that these innocent children are born without a chance to know Jesus. During childhood is the optimal time in which a child should get to know our Lord and Savior; shame on those who keep their children from the light and into darkness. May God have mercy on all those children, that some may find their way towards God and Jesus.
