FAITH, UNFAITH, FALSE FAITH



WOLVES IN SHEPARD’S CLOTHING


BS From The Catholic Bishops Conference  — 
(CNN) As officials and health experts race to get Americans vaccinated against Covid-19, some Catholic bishops have weighed in to discourage Church members from getting the latest, single-shot vaccine from Johnson & Johnson when alternatives are available.

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops, as well as at least 6 other dioceses from across the country have released statements expressing "moral concerns" over the shot due to its use of lab-grown cells that descend from cells taken in the 1980s from the tissue of aborted fetuses.

The vaccine is the third to be authorized for use in the United States. Unlike its predecessors -- from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna -- the Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires only one shot and can be kept at normal refrigerator temperatures, making it easy to transport.   Health experts have cautioned that Americans should get the vaccine they are offered. 

"If people are offered the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, they shouldn't say, 'I don't want it,'" Dr. Paul Goepfert, director of the Alabama Vaccine Research Clinic, said last month. "We are not in a scenario where we can pick and choose vaccines."

Prior to the US emergency use authorization for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the doctrinal office for the Roman Catholic Church -- the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith -- said that "it is morally acceptable to receive Covid-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research and production process." 


SIDEBAR:   People ask why I write about politics and theology —

Simple really,  as Politics and Theology both have similar ingredients and processes required to operate.  They both go after your money,  they both will lie to you, they are both corrupt, they both rely on the weak and impoverished, they both say things in untruths, stupid ancient bullsh*t, rallies, gatherings, using mass hysteria, and both have caused the death of many. Maybe millions down through the ages.  Politicians use control and so does the Vatican. 

The new statement from the Conference of Bishops is at odds with a note approved by Pope Francis, who received a vaccine in January. The December note said that "the use of such vaccines does not constitute formal cooperation with the abortion from which the cells used in production of the vaccines derive."

In a statement to CNN, Johnson & Johnson said: "We are proud to bring our COVID-19 vaccine to the world and to contribute to ending this pandemic. Our single-shot COVID-19 vaccine uses an inactivated non-infective adenovirus vector -- similar to a cold virus -- that codes for the coronavirus "spike" (S) protein, and there is no fetal tissue in the vaccine.

"We are able to manufacture hundreds of millions of doses using our engineered cell-line system and look forward to delivering those doses around the world and help meet the critical need."

The White House on Wednesday pushed back on the statement from the Conference of Bishops.  An administration official pointed CNN toward the Vatican statement from December, adding that the Biden administration is also “ Addressing hesitancy and working with local messengers on how to address that, including with religious leaders.”  President Joe Biden is a practicing Catholic.   Donald T-RUMP was a practicing idiot.


Dear Cardinals, Bishop Acolytes, Pointy Hats And Pedophiles  —
Work on what you should be doing,  recruiting new money givers at 10%,  scaring the BeJesus out of people, threatening to throw people out, protecting the faith, keeping the coffers, making Giant Gold Shrines and churches and holding dearly onto the billions the Catholic Church collects that the poor never get to see.   

And for those on TV pour less wine and more water.  You have no skills in medicine, no skills in politics and should not be involved in either.  And I seriously doubt most of your moral capacity.  The Vatican needs to have transparency, it doesn’t. You cared less about the children and your flock of flocked-up priests went pedophilia run ramparts and all you did was transfer them and hide it under the table. 

You should be doing what you should do, keep your hands off the children, no brainwashing or Pedophilia in any form of  no conceptual actions including your youth ministers, and other clergy affiliated with your church.

What have you done to the thousands of Priests and Church officials who are Pedophiles?  You swept it all under the rug so deep you hit the basement.  We who researched doubt seriously those you offered hush and settlement money to,  is the real amount, some feel its four times what you stated.  You are the guilty ones for the heartless pain you have done etc to thousands with lies and deceit.

Stay where you belong,  many have their eyes on you awaiting the Pedophoellia problem, never resolved in totem before you screw with science and the delays you create from the mis-information kill some.   Thats on your hands, and it won’t be the Blood of Christ, it will be an innocent who listened to your information…  


Unfaith —  Famed Evangelist Ravi Zacharias Engaged In Sexual Misconduct 

(CNN)   Ravi Zacharias, the prominent head of a global Christian organization who died in May, engaged in sexual misconduct that included “ exting, unwanted touching, spiritual abuse, and rape," according to a statement from the ministry he founded summarizing the results of an investigative report. 

Allegations came from four female massage therapists who said Zacharias "would either touch his genitals or ask them to touch his genitals." 

Additionally, five massage therapists claimed he "touched or rubbed them inappropriately," and one reported "many encounters over a period of years that she described as rape," according to a 12-page report from the law firm Miller & Martin, which was hired by the ministry.

The law firm said it employed a private investigations firm that included former federal law enforcement officers. More than 50 people were interviewed, including more than a dozen massage therapists, according to the report.

A digital forensics firm examined four cell phones and a laptop used by Zacharias. Evidence was uncovered of "text- and email-based relationships with women who were not his wife," along with more than 200 photos of women, the report said.

Several women accused Zacharias of using ministry funds to give them financial support, eliciting personal information about their lives and employing religious language during encounters, according to the report. 

Zacharias, who defended Christianity through books and lectures, died last spring at his Atlanta home at the age of 74 after battling sarcoma. He was a leading figure among Christian apologetics, an intellectual form of Christian theology that defends faith against doubters by invoking history and logic. 

Sidebar:  Apologetics  —  Sometimes referred to as the most sophisticated form of bullsh*t.

The Miller & Martin report detailed new allegations of misconduct against Zacharias. The report said the Christian leader’s claims that during his marriage he “ ever engaged in any inappropriate behavior of any kind" when confronted with similar allegations in the past were "misleading or false."


When They Tell You They Are A Person Of Faith  —  It’s Usually A Lie

 Persons Of Faith   —  Another thing that bugs me are those who make a claim to be a person of faith.   First, what makes one a Person of faith exactly?   It depends.  If we define it simplistically:

✞ “ A person of faith is one who is guided by a set of rules and ideals that supposedly creates a path of ultimate righteousness in their daily walks in life”.   It is NOT their personal guarantee to you of their beliefs which they are implying.  They can say it , many do say it for their benefit, and it not be true.   They talk the talk, but don’t walk the walk…  

✞ About 99% of it is said for the person of faith’s own benefit. 

✞ It’s getting more confusing every day, the world is changing and not for the better.  And as humanoids, we are human, frail or weak sometimes morally and easily converted or brainwashed.

✞ If you believe on the TV thats you will be saved by some mortal professing a friendship with Christ… See a doctor

✞ Churches come in many flavors, and varieties.    They are manmade…  Churches are like an amusement parks, you go on the rides you like. 

✞ Unfortunately many are pedophiles doing the nether Gods work. Never leave your kids alone with these nuts… 

✞ Since most church doctrine comes from stories past down and altered throughout the ages, no one can claim they know or attended any of these Biblical stories and events, thus the truth remains a rumor no matter how you twist it.  

✞ The competition for the right to be first unto the seat of God has caused more deaths in the history of the world than any other reason and not doing what the church wants resulted in the death of some great men and women thinkers and those ahead of their times    😇


 Christian Crimes Against Humanity Have Not Been So Innocent
We often think of Christianity as being the savior of mankind.  The problem is a word called science.  This was not always true.  In fact more people, millions upon millions have died at the hands of the religious leaders in all times.  We have had inquisitions, crusades, and wars all in the name of religion.  And millions died, for a belief they never capitulated nor amounted in their favor, and knew little anything about.

We have killed some of the noblest and intelligent men of all time in the name of a Christian God.  We have fought Christian Catholics against Christian Protestants, Christians against Muslims,  Against Jews and the list goes on and on.
Here is simple sampling:  We left out the thousands tortured and dismembered or horrifically removed by those doing the Lords work…It was called the Inquisition… Another man-made ordeal…  Orchestrated by the Catholic Church….


✞ JAN HUS (1369 – 6 JULY 1415) 

Often referred to in English as John Hus or John Huss, was a Czech priest, philosopher, reformer, and master at Charles University in Prague. Hus is considered the first Church reformer, as he lived before Luther, Calvin, and Zwingli.  He was a key predecessor to the Protestant movement of the sixteenth century, and his teachings had a strong influence on the states of Europe, most immediately in the approval of a reformist Bohemian religious denomination, and, more than a century later, on Martin Luther.  Burnt at the stake.

 

✞ GIROLAMO SAVONAROLA, 1452-1498

The Italian religious and political reformer, entered the Dominican order at Bologna. In a convent at Brescia his zeal won attention, and in 1489 he was recalled to Florence. His second appearance in the pulpit of San Marco -- on the sinfulness and apostasy of the time -- was a great popular triumph, and by some he was hailed as an inspired prophet.

His gift of prophecy led to his being cited in 1495 to answer a charge of heresy at Rome and on his failing to appear he was forbidden to preach. In 1497 came a sentence of excommunication from Rome;  He was brought to trial for falsely claiming to have seen visions, and uttered prophecies, for religious error, and for sedition.  On May 23, 1498, this extraordinary man and two Dominican disciples were hanged and burned, still professing their adherence to the Church.

 

✞ GALILEO GALILEI  15 FEB.1564 - 8 JAN.1642

Was an Italian physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher who played a major role in the Scientific Revolution. His achievements include improvements to the telescope, incredible astronomical observations and support for Copernican’s theory.  

That the sun is the center of the Universe and not the earth.  Galileo has been called the "father of modern observational astronomy, modern physics", and "the Father of Modern Science".

His contributions include the confirmation of the phases of Venus, the discovery of the four largest satellites of Jupiter and the observation and analysis of sunspots. Galileo also worked in applied science and technology, inventing an improved military compass and other instruments.

Galileo later defended his views in Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, which appeared to attack Pope Urban VIII and thus alienated him and the Jesuits, who had both supported Galileo up until this point. He was tried by the Inquisition, found "vehemently suspect of heresy", forced to recant, and spent the rest of his life under house arrest

It was while Galileo was under house arrest that he wrote one of his finest works, Two New Sciences, in which he summarized the work he had done some forty years earlier, on the two sciences now called kinematics and strength of materials.

✞ MICHAEL SERVETUS  29 SEPT 1509 – 27 OCT 1553
Was a Spanish theologian, physician, cartographer, and Renaissance humanist. He was the first European to correctly describe the function of pulmonary circulation. He was a polymath versed in many sciences: mathematics, astronomy and meteorology, geography, human anatomy, medicine and pharmacology, as well as jurisprudence, translation, poetry and the scholarly study of the Bible in its original languages. 

He is renowned in the history of several of these fields, particularly medicine and theology.  When Calvin requested that Servetus be executed by decapitation as a traitor rather than by fire as a heretic, The Geneva Council refused his request. On 27 October 1553 Servetus was burned at the stake just outside Geneva with what was believed to be the last copy of his book chained to his leg. Historians record his last words as: "Jesus, Son of the Eternal God, have mercy on me.  And last, have you met the inquisitor…
