Calling Scientology a dangerous
´cult,´ Calvary Baptist Church pastor
intended to help A&E film
episode for Leah Remini series

Tampa Bay Times, by Tracey McManus

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 7/14/2017 11:37:04 AM

CLEARWATER — In an unprecedented public condemnation by a local religious organization about the Church of Scientology, Calvary Baptist Church Pastor Willy Rice declared Wednesday that the "community has been tormented by this Goliath for far too long." "Someone has to pick up a rock and a slingshot and trust God with the results," Rice wrote in a blog post that has since been removed from the Calvary website. "We believe we are in a unique position in this community and should try to help." To expose "the cult´s dangerous, deceptive and abusive practices," Calvary Baptist had committed to allow A&E´s Emmy-nominated

Comments:
If you haven´t yet seen Leah Remini´s series, which is now up to eight episodes with more in the works, watch it. Scientology functions like a totalitarian government, attempting to control the thoughts and actions of their membership. Sea-Org members cannot go online freely or even send or receive mail that hasn´t first been read by superiors. Losing their tax exemption is what they fear most, and what the intrepid Ms. Remini is hoping to accomplish.

I´m sure it wouldn´t be hard to Tie Scientology to Islam...methodologies are much the same, believe or die!

Godspeed, Reverend. Those people do not take kindly to attacks. They also don´t care for mockingly posed selfies in front of their HQ, ha ha, so if you do it, be quick.

I haven´t seen Leah Remini´s series, but I did see Going Clear which covers much of the same ground. Scientology is led by dangerous sociopaths.

Sandusky´s son pleads guilty
to child sex abuse allegations

BELLEFONTE, Pa. – A son of former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky pleaded guilty Friday to charges he pressured a teenage girl to send him naked photos and asked her teen sister to give him oral sex. Jeffrey Sandusky´s plea deal comes a week before his trial was slated to begin on the charges, and nearly six years after his father was arrested in a child molestation case that shook Penn State and is still working its way through criminal and civil courts. Jeffrey Sandusky pleaded guilty to all 14 counts, including solicitation of statutory sexual assault and solicitation

Who’s a Fascist? Why Does it Matter?

Despite all the chatter, there aren’t any fascists involved in the clashes involving the misnamed “white nationalists” and “antifa” (antifascists). Each side accuses the other of “fascism.” But fascism was destroyed in the Second World War, and insofar as there are still some scattered remnants, they are non-Western (the Iranian Islamic Republic and the Islamic State “caliphate” are perhaps good examples). But “fascism” as it originated, and came to power, in Europe is gone, and there is no sign of contemporary revival. There has never been a viable fascist movement or party in the United States (any more than there has

So here is the CNN video highlight of the year. Today CNN had on someone named Clay Travis, who apparently is a popular sports radio host (I don’t listen to sports talk radio), talking about the ESPN controversy over Jamele Hill saying something mean about Trump (I don’t watch ESPN either), and Travis repeated several times that the only two things he believes in are the First Amendment and. . . boobs. Well, okay. Sounds to me like a male sports fan being honest. Let’s face it, with NFL attendance and TV ratings sagging, I predict we’ll see a lot

Senator Dianne Feinstein revealed both the Democrat’s anti-Catholic bigotry and view of work when she said: "And I think in your case, professor, when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that´s of concern when you come to the big issues that large numbers of people have fought for years in this country." She was addressing a Catholic woman who has been nominated to the judiciary. Can you imagine what would happen if a Republican questioned a liberal woman’s suitability for the judiciary because of that woman’s religious beliefs? Apparently, according to

CLEARWATER — The tree fell late Sunday. An enormous cedar, at least 40 feet tall, with branches blanketing two back yards. The trunk, as wide as a couch, crushed a chain-link fence. The limbs tangled in power lines, wrestling them to the soggy ground. Wires snapped one power pole and bent another, whose lines pulled on the pole across the street, snapping those. When people in the modest neighborhood behind Spectrum Field emerged after Hurricane Irma, they saw the splintered tree, the broken poles and dangling lines — and resigned themselves to being in the dark. "Especially when we found out how many

I may need to buy this book. It’s proving to be an even richer vein of blog content than I imagined. There are establishmentarians, there are big-government establishmentarians, and then there are people who read Orwell and see a parable about insufficient trust in authority: (Snip) That passage doesn’t even describe Trump’s M.O. correctly. He does prize dominance and he’s authoritarian by instinct but he’s retreated from authoritarian options so far as president. When the courts blocked his travel ban, he didn’t ignore the rulings and implement the policy anyway. He challenged the rulings in court. When James Mattis told him

There´s an old Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times." Well, boys and girls, we definitely live in interesting times. They´re so interesting, in fact, that more and more children appear to be going through the process of transitioning from their birth gender into something else. To be sure, the numbers aren´t really all that staggering. It´s far more likely that the handful of cases we hear about are the majority of examples in existence, which means maybe a few dozen throughout the Western world. However, a professor at the University of Rhode Island thinks we need to pave the way

I knew things were getting strange when I realized I was proud of Melania Trump. After all, here was a woman who had posed for porn-ish lesbian photos and once admitted that she married Donald Trump for money. Not that there´s anything wrong with that! Who doesn´t like lesbian porn? And why else would anyone marry Donald Trump? Still, it did not strike me as the best resume for a first lady. But she´s a great first lady: charming, stylish and empathetic. I experience a bit of cognitive dissonance every time it hits me, but I am delighted to have her

   

 

  


 
Fake news about H.R. McMaster?

Posted By: Hazymac- 9/15/2017 11:30:03     Post Reply
Yesterday, PJ Media published a disturbing report about H.R. McMaster, President Trump’s national security adviser. It said that at a meeting during the week of August 27 at the White House, McMaster brought with him Mustafa Javed Ali, NSC Senior Director on Counter-Terrorism. According to PJ Media’s report, Ali has been described by a senior administration source as being “opposed to Hezbollah’s designation as a terrorist organization.” The Israelis reportedly demanded that Ali leave the room. Supposedly, they meant the demand to serve as a message to President Trump that McMaster’s behavior has subverted Trump’s stated Middle East policy. The report also

How did Donald Trump pull off his stunning run to the presidency? I didn’t predict it, so I don’t feel qualified to say. Steve Bannon predicted it. Indeed, he told Charlie Rose he was 100 percent certain Trump would defeat Hillary Clinton. Thus, Bannon has standing to opine. Bannon told Rose that the core issue behind Trump’s success was his hard line on illegal immigration. He said that, though he’s confident the Democrats will shoot themselves in the foot by aligning with the over-the-top “resistance” movement, all bets are off if Trump gets behind amnesty for illegal immigrants, including amnesty for “dreamers.” Trump

Bernie Sanders’s single-payer health care plan released yesterday offered no cost estimate, and no funding mechanism, though a credible estimate from the Urban Institute of a previous Sanders proposal came in at $32 trillion of new spending for the first ten years. I suspect that for Sanders, this is a feature and not a bug. Over at Reason, Peter Suderman has done yeoman work in digging up a 1987 event where Sanders admits that Canadian-style single-payer health care would bankrupt the nation.

WASHINGTON — Shortly after learning in May that a special counsel had been appointed to investigate links between his campaign associates and Russia, President Trump berated Attorney General Jeff Sessions in an Oval Office meeting and said he should resign, according to current and former administration officials and others briefed on the matter. The president attributed the appointment of the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, to Mr. Sessions’s decision to recuse himself from the Justice Department’s Russia investigation — a move Mr. Trump believes was the moment his administration effectively lost control over the inquiry. Accusing Mr. Sessions of “disloyalty,”

Hillary Clinton told CNN on Wednesday that it is time to abolish the Electoral College, part of a sweeping interview where the former Democratic nominee sought to explain why she lost the 2016 election. Clinton, in the interview with CNN´s Anderson Cooper, displayed her animus for fired FBI Director James Comey, reflected on her love for the people -- namely former President Bill Clinton -- who helped her get through the crushing loss and blasted the arcane election body that she believes helped Donald Trump win the presidency. "I think it needs to be eliminated," Clinton said of the Electoral

John McCain is joining a bipartisan push to block President Donald Trump from banning transgender people from serving in the military. Mr Trump issued a moratorium last month instructing the military to stop providing gender reassignment surgeries for transgender troops, and to stop plans to recruit those troops. That decision came following an order from his predecessor that instructed the military to begin considering programmes to allow transgender people to serve openly and without worry in the military. (Snip) Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, and Senator Susan Collins, a Republican, are also behind the effort. “Thousands of brave transgender Americans love

Facing harsh criticism, a Harvard dean said early Friday morning that he was revoking his invitation to Chelsea Manning, a former United States soldier convicted of leaking classified information, to be a visiting fellow at the university. The sudden turnabout by the Harvard Kennedy School came after a day of intense backlash over the university’s announcement on Wednesday that Ms. Manning would become a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics this school year. Douglas W. Elmendorf, the dean of the Harvard Kennedy School, said that while the university encourages a diversity of opinions and does not shy from controversy,

After months of denials, the pretext for Susan Rice’s eavesdropping on Trump officials has finally been made public. It had been widely known that Obama’s former National Security Adviser had contrived to unmask the names of top Trump officials who had been spied on by the administration. And the same media that still treats Watergate as the Great American Scandal had claimed that there was nothing “improper” in an Obama loyalist eavesdropping on members of the opposition party. Every time Obama Inc. was caught eavesdropping on opposition politicians, it presented its spin in a carefully packaged “scoop” to a major media

Hillary Clinton’s new book entitled “What Happened” was officially released on Tuesday. Since then, she has been promoting it with the zeal of an indefatigable carnival barker. It seems to be working. (Snip) I’ve spent two days and consumed three packs of Tums trying to digest all 464 pages. (I’m a fast reader.) I initially counted 43 reasons Clinton gives for her 2016 election loss, as she meticulously faults all the people who sabotaged what was rightfully hers. But upon closer examination, I have discovered thirteen more who are to blame. Incredible. But not surprising. You see, Clinton has long
