Another holy roller

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) A prominent head of the Southern Baptist Convention was removed Wednesday as president of a Texas seminary following allegations of “unbiblical teaching” through sexist and demeaning comments to women who he suggests should tolerate abuse. The Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary board of trustees said in a statement that 75-year-old Paige Patterson was dismissed following a 13-hour meeting “to move in the direction of new leadership for the benefit of the future mission of the Seminary.” He made abusive and demeaning comments to women, remarking on a teenage girl’s body, saying female seminarians should work hard to look attractive and that abused women should almost always stay with their husbands.
And women should not look to the bible for help (1 Corinthians 14:34, 1 Timothy 2:11-12, 1 Peter 3:1), or the Quran: “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other… Good women are obedient. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them, forsake them in beds apart; and beat them” Q 4:34
The solution to this institutionalized sexism, misogyny and woman oppression is for women to stop following these man-made, male-dominant cults. Stop going to church, synagogue, temple and mosque!


This is it

Every once in a while, the ambassadors of deception make it a point to advance that such or such event is the worst in human history. For these liars, here is the fact, one more time:
The 1918 flu pandemic (January 1918 to December 1920) was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic, the first of the two pandemics involving H1N1 influenza virus. It infected 500 million people around the world, including people on remote Pacific islands and in the Arctic, and resulted in the deaths of 50 to 100 million (three to five percent of the world’s population), making it one of the deadliest natural disasters in human history. The second human disaster was the exploits of king Leopold II of Belgium in the Congo, with the genocide of 80 millions Negroes.

Debunking “fair trade”

A few years ago, “Fair Trade” became a new campaign, adopted by the coffee industry, after the failure of the “Colombian coffee” myth. Most of the coffee beans sold under the “Colombian” label were grown outside of Colombia.
Today, people are falling for a different version of the new lie. There is no “fair trade” policy anywhere and I challenge anyone to prove otherwise. Granted that coffee, limes and cacao do not require much work, except new plants and harvesting, farmers are still receiving a pittance for their produce. Coffee and limes are purchased by foreign companies at the rate of 15 cents per pound, while cacao is grown in modern plantations owned by the foreign companies, just as sugar cane and cotton. For local growers, selling cacao is not even an option.

3 unbelievable lies

1- SECOND HAND SMOKE How did we fall for that joke? The main components of smoke are carbon dioxide and water vapor. Carbon dioxide is turned into sugar and cellulose by plants, and into limestone by coastlines; the water vapor enters the water cycle and comes back as rain. People smoked for thousands of years without any problem, until the chemicals used to process the tobacco caused the cancer in smokers. Second hand smoke is not more dangerous than using cell phones, eating chocolate, drinking alcohol, having breasts or testicles, brushing your teeth, breathing the air, spraying Round-Up on your lawn or taking thousands of daily x-rays of your skull.
2- BROWN EGGS Another lie, that most people believe, is the non-existent difference between white and brown eggs? Egg color depends on the breed of the chicken. White-feathered chickens with white ear lobes lay white eggs and red-feathered ones with red ear lobes lay brown eggs (this may not apply to all breeds). Almost everyone jumped on the bandwagon “brown eggs are local eggs, and local eggs are fresh”. That’s why today, brown eggs still cost more than white eggs.
Another fallacy is the misleading term “cage-free”. A warehouse is just a bigger cage and the truth is that cage-free hens are often still very crowded, with no access to the outdoors. Just a marketing ploy to charge more money.
And it doesn’t stop here: there is no commercial “organic egg” sold anywhere. I challenge any company to prove that they sell organic eggs.
3- MILK Only one product is needed to prove how deviant the dairy industry is and how companies put profit over consumer safety. Monsanto Chemical Co., maker of fine poisons such as DDT, agent orange, Roundup and more, spent around half a billion dollars inventing a shot to inject into cows, to force a cow to produce MORE milk. Unfortunately, they created their Frankenstein Posilac (rbGH) shot that directly affected all test animals, and hid the test results from the public. The Canadians read enough of this report (before it was stolen) to reject rbGH for their country. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) insists that IGF-1 is destroyed in the stomach.
Most cow’s milk has measurable quantities of herbicides, pesticides, up to 200 times the safe levels of dioxins, up to 52 powerful antibiotics, blood, pus, feces, bacteria and viruses. Commercial regular and organic cow milk has 59 active hormones, scores of allergens, fat and cholesterol. Of those 59 hormones one is a powerful GROWTH hormone called Insulin Growth Factor ONE (IGF-1). The medical world says IGF-1 is a key factor in the rapid growth and proliferation of breast, prostate and colon cancers, and we suspect that most likely it will be found to promote ALL cancers.
The calcium in cow’s milk is basically useless because it has insufficient magnesium content. There may also be prions in the milk and meat. This is a crystalline substance that acts like a virus… with an “incubation” period of from 5 to 30 years. The end result is MAD COW DISEASE!

Human ostrich

Leonard Pitts Jr. wrote an op-ed: [All those Christians whose faith requires them to live the Good News, to feed the hungry, to house the homeless, speak for the voiceless and welcome the stranger, surely do not threaten the faith. Having seen putative Christians excuse the liar, rationalize the alleged pedophile, justify the sexual assaulter and cheer as walls are raised against the most vulnerable, it’s obvious that many of those who claim that name embody a niggardly, cowardly, selfish and situational “faith” that has little to do with Jesus.]
Why are people so hell-bent on burying their heads in the sand? Christianity has nothing to do with the biblical Jesus; it was the worship of Serapis Christus whose followers were called Christians, circa 315AD. They were the only Christians to ever exist. The so called neo-Christians are truly Paulians, who follow the teachings of Paul of Tarsus.

Baton Rouge lunacy

The news is out: [State government agencies in Louisiana are being barred from contracting with companies that boycott Israel. Gov. John Bel Edwards issued an executive order Tuesday prohibiting such contracts and requiring his administration to put the ban in place quickly. In a statement, the Democratic governor called Israel “America’s closest ally in the Middle East and a beacon of democracy in the region.” He describes boycotts of Israel, which are part of a movement protesting Israel’s policies toward Palestinians, an “affront” to the U.S. relationship with Israel. On Tuesday, an event at the Governor’s Mansion celebrated the 70th anniversary of Israel’s creation.]
Gov. John Bel Edwards called Israel “America’s closest ally in the Middle East and a beacon of democracy in the region”. So he has never heard of the USS Liberty, the Lavon Affair, the Fink’s bar diatribe and, most of all, Gov. John Bel Edwards is too stupid to know the definition of democracy.

Defending Trump

Trump is not the first white supremacist president of the US, but he seems to be the smartest. Besides seeing the presidency as a tool to enrich himself and his immediate family, he has shown the outstanding ability to use the stupidity of the people for his own advantage. Let’s face the truth, while Hillary continues to nag when she is not collapsing, while Mueller is popping here and there in the news with a constipated look on his face, while Michael Avenatti is mentally masturbating behind a mic at CNN, Trump, Ivanka and Kushner are moving from bankrupt idiots to the billionaire club. No one will have profited more from the presidency than Trump, and that’s the art of his deal.
Charlottesville is new, but nevertheless more of the same common event in the US. Racism has been a major part of the American landscape since the European colonization of North America, beginning in 1492. Racism against Native Americans, racism against African-Americans, racism against Japanese-Americans, racism against Muslim-Americans, racism against Mexicans, racism against Africans, racism against anything non-Caucasian.
The media portrayal of this continent’s first inhabitants as bloodthirsty savages helped justify European abuses against Native Americans. The institution of slavery kept blacks in bondage for generations while legally or socially sanctioned privileges and rights were given to white Americans but denied to all other races. Other institutions, such as the church, played roles in maintaining slavery and segregation. Racism in medicine has led to unethical medical experiments involving people of color, still receiving substandard treatment today. Every institution in the US is geared toward the control and domination of non-whites, from the banks, to real estate, to the church. There is a reason why the  median wealth among white households in America is $171,000; among black households, it’s $17,600.
Today, in the most racist land in the world, a Negro can not go to Starbucks or have a BBQ in a park without some Proto-Aryan calling the police execution gang. Trump is not responsible for something that has always been the fabric of white American Confederacy; just as Trump is not responsible for the school shootings. Trump is not responsible for Jim Crow or the lynching of thousands of Negroes, he is only following in the footsteps of his ancestors.
