    A woman who once worked as a drummer for Beyoncé claims the singer is wrapped up in the practices of “extreme witchcraft” and has been using her spells to run surveillance and control her finances, and now she wants a restraining order against Bey. According to very bizarre court documents obtained by The Blast, Kimberly Thompson says she used to work for Beyoncé: “I worked for her as her drummer for her band for 7 years.” She claims that for some reason, Bey has started a campaign of harassment against her, that includes “Extreme witchcraft, Dark magic” and “Magic spells...

    India’s government on Wednesday approved an ordinance to implement a top court ruling striking down the Muslim practice that allows men to instantly divorce. The government decision came after it failed to get approval from Parliament a year after the court ruled that the practice of allowing men to divorce by simply uttering the Arabic word for divorce — “talaq” — three times violated the constitutional rights of Muslim women. Most of the 170 million Muslims in India are Sunnis governed by the Muslim Personal Law for family matters and disputes. The laws include allowing the practice, known as “triple...

    Millions of Shiite Muslims across the globe are commemorating one of the holiest days in the Islamic calendar: Ashura, which mourns the death of the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad. In some parts of the world these celebrations come in the shape of self-flagellation using knives and swords or walking on hot coals - and even young children are forced to take part. These images from India and Pakistan show boys of primary school age running across burning embers, and young men covered in blood from whipping themselves with knives on chains.

    A number of U.S. multinational companies, including Coca-Cola, IBM, and Citi, have signed onto an open letter that calls on the British Government to legalize homosexual “marriage” in Northern Ireland. The companies claim this is necessary “to attract the best talent to Northern Ireland” and because the multinationals want LGBT employees “to be themselves.” The open letter was created by Amnesty International and it is headlined “Businesses for Love Equality,” and has the Twitter hashtag #Businesses4LoveEquality. […] Some of the U.S.-based multinationals that signed the letter include Coca-Cola, IBM, Liberty Mutual Insurance, Citi, Allstate Northern Ireland, Santander Bank, and Baker...
  • From Atheist to Christian at Yale - Dr. Paul Lim (Video)

    09/18/2018 7:32:40 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 9 replies
    Video LinkThis is a great video (long but great). Dr Paul Lim is a South Korean immigrant to the U.S. who began to get religion while he was a student at Yale of all places. He is now a professor of divinity at Vanderbilt. His story is incredibly entertaining and interesting. And his wonderful sense of humor makes this long video pass too quickly.Given that it is a long (48 minutes plus), you might want to watch a little bit here and there instead of plunging head long.Dr. Lim's voyage to Faith is unusual and at the same time somewhat...

    In his speech at the annual Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington, D.C., September 15, 2018, former VP Joe Biden attacked the millions of Americans who support President Trump, calling them "intolerant", “virulent people” and “dregs of society”, and of committing a “crime” of prejudice against LGBTQ people.

    I was a Facebook friend of Desmond Ford. To those who are not familiar with him, he was disfellowshipped from the SDA church his disagreeing with the Sanctuary doctrine. The church believes that Christ separately went into the temple in Heaven to individually declare us saved or unsaved. His position something along the lines of that happening at the cross, which I agree with. The whole Jewish system of sacrifice, laid out step by step, was all done at once at the Cross. So, anyways back to my interesting event. We were discussing the ordination of wonen, of which I'm...

    In 1999 at the UN, Walter Cronkite declared his support and allegiance to a one-world government. He blamed the refusal of the U.S. Congress to ratify one-world-government treaties on “a handful” of obdurate senators who “pander” to the Christian Coalition and the “religious right wing”. Identifying Pat Robertson as the leader of the Christian Coalition, Cronkite quoted Robertson, that “any attempt to achieve world order before that time must be the work of the Devil.” Cronkite then mocked Robertson by declaring, “I’m glad to sit here at the right hand of Satan.”

    President Rodrigo Duterte on Sunday expressed his sympathies to families who lost their loved ones during the onslaught of Typhoon Ompong. “I share the grief of those who lost loved ones,” Duterte said in a situation briefing on the effects of "Ompong" in Tuguegarao City. “Those we call in the unforeseen events, in insurance, this is an act of God. I don’t know how it can be an act of God but that is the term used by the insurance,” he added. Presidential Adviser on Political Affairs Francis Tolentino said at least 25 people died at the height of the...

    President Donald Trump publicly rebuked German Chancellor Angela Merkel on July 11 for Germany’s decision to buy a massive amount of gas from Russia. “I think it’s very sad,” he said. "Germany is totally controlled by Russia,” he later said, “I think it’s a very bad thing for nato and I don’t think it should have happened.” Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 are key components of Putin’s plan to tighten his grip on nations in Eastern Europe that used to be part of the Soviet Empire. Since these pipelines travel directly from Russia to Germany, they enable Putin to...

    The Dalai Lama has told a press conference in Sweden that “Europe belongs to the Europeans”, asserting that refugees should be repatriated so they can rebuild their homelands. Speaking in the multicultural city of Malmö, where nearly half of residents are of foreign background, with Iraqis making up the largest single group, the leader of Tibetan Buddhism said Sweden is seen as “a peaceful, generally prosperous country” with a relatively small gap between rich and poor. “Spontaneously”, reports Norrköpings Tidningar, the Dalai Lama then “moved on to talk about one of the biggest issues in the Swedish election — the...

    As usual, my wife and I attended first day Rosh Hashana services this morning. As he had done several years ago, the rabbi condemned Trump and Republicans for creating violence and bad feelings in the US and the world. I had had it and we walked out. This is the second time he has done this during The High Holidays. What a putz. When he had last done this I wrote to the congregation a letter criticizing the rabbi and the temple. A month later they replied that they had passed my letter to the rabbi, but counseled me not...

    There are three principal reasons why the 4 B.C. date has prevailed over 1 B.C. These reasons were articulated by Emil Schürer in A History of the Jewish People in the Time of Jesus Christ, also published in the 19th century. First, Josephus informs us that Herod died shortly before a Passover (Antiquities 17.9.3, The Jewish War 2.1.3), making a lunar eclipse in March (the time of the 4 B.C. eclipse) much more likely than one in December. Second, Josephus writes that Herod reigned for 37 years from the time of his appointment in 40 B.C. and 34 years from...

    Tomorrow morning I board a flight from Malaga to Santiago de Compostela then, 2 buses later, I arrive in Sarria and immediately start walking 20km to Portomarin. Most people who walk from Sarria to Santiago do it in 5 stages but I will be doing it in 6 so I have more time to sightsee along the way, plus I will have 1 full day in Santiago after I arrive and before my flight back. Weather looks good in the 10 day forecast so it should be a good walk.
