    The research found evidence of the "incaprettamento" method of murder at 14 Neolithic sites in Europe.The murder of sacrificial victims by "incaprettamento" — tying their neck to their legs bent behind their back, so that they effectively strangled themselves — seems to have been a tradition across much of Neolithic Europe, with a new study identifying more than a dozen such murders over more than 2,000 years.The study comes after a reassessment of an ancient tomb that was discovered more than 20 years ago at Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux near Avignon, in southern France. The tomb mimics a silo, or pit where grain...
  • Denver Mayor: ‘We Want to Be a Welcoming City’ for Migrants, That ‘Requires Shared Sacrifice’

    During a portion of an interview with CNBC that was recorded in February and aired on Thursday’s “Cities of Success,” Denver Mayor Mike Johnston responded to a question on if the city was too open to migrants and too generous by stating that “it’s a balance. We want to be a welcoming city” but doing that without federal help “requires shared sacrifice, it requires compromise. So, we are both making cuts to city budgets to meet this financial need, and we are making cuts to the amount of services we can provide to the migrants that arrive and to the...

    Today's number one religion in the world is, "Self". We are told that each person has the right to decide what truth is, and anyone who publicly says otherwise is ostracized. Thus, upon the alter of "Self", Truth has been sacrificed. Even the truth about one's gender, has been twisted to the point that companies will terminate the employment of anyone who publicly declares otherwise.Truth has been discarded, because Truth is Christ, and the world has hated Christ from the beginning. Jesus tells us in John 14:6"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to...

    The animals Muslims will slaughter in Hamtramck, Michigan, for their torturous “religious celebration” must be Halal, a Jihad money-making scheme to spread Sharia worldwide. The revised ordinance requires those who barbarically slaughter the animals to “notify” the City ahead of time and to perform their slaughter in a way more or less compliant with health regulations. The City has also over-written many health codes by allowing the slaughter of animals in the Halal fashion at a person’s residence. The City requires that Muslims block the viewing of the slaughter from members of the general public who do not wish to...

He was a senior citizen with a bucket list who had bitten off more than he could chew. My son and I felt privileged to be able to help him down the mountain. It was an act of love. It was what he needed in that moment.What is love? It is a giving of ourselves to another as a sacrificial offering. We deny something of ourselves so...

    Though he has promised to end fossil fuels, President Biden now threatens to use emergency war powers to commandeer the assets of oil producers located in the US. Brushing aside the steps he's already taken to reduce the supply of energy in this country by cancelling the Keystone Pipeline and numerous new drilling leases, Biden asserted that "I'm giving oil producers one last chance to do the right thing." ExxonMobil CEO Darren Woods pointed out that "our company has invested $118 billion on new oil and gas supplies over the past five years. We have made the necessary expenditures and...

    When God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac (Genesis 22), there was no questioning on Abraham’s part about what was intended. He understood precisely what was involved in such a thing. There was wood to be gathered, an altar of stones to be constructed, the victim to be bound, and then the slitting of its throat with the gushing forth of blood, all consummated in the burning fires of the now-completed offering. What Abraham did was repeated in a variety of forms throughout the ancient world. Homer writes about Poseidon being absent from the Hellenic scene in order to...

    [Catholic Caucus] THE FORTY MARTYRS OF SEBASTE: Killed for Noncompliance in Great Reset of Their Time “Under Licinius, forty soldiers of the garrison of Sebaste (Armenia) were exposed on a frozen pond for refusing to sacrifice to idols. All persevered but one, whose courage failed him, and he perished in a bath of tepid water prepared for him. But their guard, inspired by grace, took his place and died with them, so there were forty martyrs still. They suffered A.D. 320.” (Roman Missal) March 10th marks the feast day of the Forty Martyrs of Sebaste, who died in the...

Suspect Lashawn McNeil, 47, is accused of shooting NYPD officers Jason Rivera, 22, and Wilbert Mora, 27, in Harlem on Friday. Rivera succumbed to his wounds while Mora was gravely injured and hospitalized. "Jill and I are saddened to hear two NYPD officers were shot last night — one fatally," Biden said in a Saturday afternoon tweet. "We’re keeping them and their families in our prayers. Officers put on the badge and head into harm’s way...

    One day two women who lost contact 15 years earlier met on social media. This reunion would forever change the life of a teenage girl. One woman was a missionary, the other a single mother raising a teen daughter. The mother of the teen invited her long lost friend to come and visit. Knowing she had a few weeks before she would embark upon another missionary journey, the woman accepted friend's offer.Indianapolis is a long way from San Diego, but the trip would be good for both women to visit and go over old times. When the missionary arrived, she...

    “The Firstborn Son Is Presented in the Temple” (Luke 2:22-40) Yesterday was Christmas, and now we’re into the days after Christmas. For us, these days mean eating leftovers, returning gifts that don’t fit, and taking down the decorations. But what about for Jesus? What did the days after his birth mean for him? Our text is one the few places we have an account of what happened during that time. It’s the story of what happened forty days after his birth, when “The Firstborn Son Is Presented in the Temple.” Actually, the first event after Christmas we have is found...

    I must confess that I have often doubted that Jesus could somehow relate to us. I mean–with my “descent into Hell” as I’ve described–how could he relate to THAT? …Of course, he did descend into Hell, didn’t he? So he certainly knows what Hell is like! But more to the point, Jesus did not sin, so how could he relate to the sinner? All this has been on my mind for some time. A few days ago, I was reading the Bible and saw the passage where–on the night of his betrayal–Jesus took his disciples to the garden so that...
  • The Real Reason Americans Do Not Have Friends

    “Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13 Would you lay down your life for your friends? Would they do so for you? If the answer to either of these questions is no, perhaps a better understanding of real friendship would make such meaningful relationships possible. Sadly, many Americans have been deformed by a Hollywood idea of friendship as portrayed in movies. In addition, the Internet and social media also depict friendship as a casual acquaintance with others. The expression Facebook friend denotes a superficial friendship activated by a...

    In the past week, I've learned that our soldiers were put in harm's way by a group of politicians, generals, and bureaucrats whose quality as leaders and human beings it is difficult to understate. They are so fantastically corrupt that they spent two decades funneling trillions of dollars in aid they knew wasn't helping to a puppet government which had its greatest achievements in the areas of fraud, child rape, and heroin production. They are so pants-sh-ttingly incompetent that somehow it didn't occur to any of them that it might be a bad idea to have the Americans with guns...

    President Joe Biden's former coronavirus czar scolded Americans for not sacrificing enough during the past year to stem the pandemic. Andy Slavitt, who resigned as a senior adviser to the White House pandemic response team last week, suggested that Americans were selfish and have only themselves to blame for the tragedies of the past year. He made the snide comments Monday on "CBS This Morning" while shilling his new book “Preventable: The Inside Story of How Leadership Failures, Politics, and Selfishness Doomed the U.S. Coronavirus Response."
