Happy Easter 2013 Part II

A Texas county district attorney and his wife were slain in their home two months after a top prosecutor in his office was gunned down in the courthouse parking lot. Authorities don't know if the deaths are linked. FULL STORY

Yesterday, yet another violent death due to guns being in the wrong hands. This is why we need to do more to keep guns off the streets and why background checks are only the best start to curbing the gun violence that is plaguing America.

Dear Rightwing Catholic Islamophobes: Pope Francis Just Washed the Feet of a Poor Muslim

Angelika -

The thing that strikes me about all this is that there is a small strand of American Catholic conservatism that frankly despises both the poor and Muslims, and is one of the pillars of prejudice against Muslims (some call it Islamophobia) in the US....Read More.

Yes, Three cheers for Pope Francis. On this Resurrection Sunday, tolerance for other beliefs should not be forgotten. After all, two wrongs only equal two wrongs. There may or may not be religious freedom in many Muslim Countries and or those religious freedoms may be highly limited, but that does not mean we Americans get to forsake our First Amendment to our Bill of Rights.

Resurrection Sunday/ Happy Easter

Christian_easter : a Christian cross in a clouded sky with sun flare behind it Christian_easter : Religious Easter card with Jesus crucifixion on the Cross  Includes the Greek symbols, the fish and the dove  Isolated over white background.              Christian_easter : Jesus Christ with Easter Bunny

Normally this is not an Evangelical Blog. After all, there are so many who can preach far better than I, which is why I usually go with common interests, except where I have lose my temper and fight back against something or some one I thoroughly disagree with. 
This Resurrection Sunday is different, after not able to forget how those who call themselves Christian, the active members of Westboro Baptist Church have turned Jesus Christ Gospel of Grace, Love, Mercy and Truth; into a gospel of hate, intolerance and violence. I must>>>>

The Gospel of Luke 24: 1-12>>>
Christian_easter : Huge christian cross silhouette during sunset against skyBut on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, taking with them spices that they had prepared. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in, they did not find the body. While they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men in dazzling clothes stood beside them, " Why so you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be handed over to sinners, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again." Then they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb, they told all the eleven and to all the rest. Now it was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them who told this to the apostles. But these words, seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. But Peter got up and ran to the tomb stooping and looking in he saw the linen cloths by themselves; then he went home, amazed at what had happened.
 Now, whether or not that cloth is what we now call the Shroud of Turin--that is a matter of Faith and Belief. Whether is is or is not, In My Opinion, does not change the Gospel one bit.

After all>>>
Christian_easter : silver christian fish symbol - illustration Stock PhotoChristian_easter : Easter postcard with the religious symbol and the decoration
Acts 10: 34-43>>>
Then Peter began to speak to them: " I truly understand that God show no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. You know the message he sent to the people of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ--he is Lord of all. That message spread throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John announced: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. We are witnesses to all that he did both in Judea and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree; but Good raised him on the third day and allowed him to appear, not to all the people but to us who were chosen by Gos as witnesses, and who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one ordained by God as judge of the living and the dead. All prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.

Jesus and Jesus alone was ordained by God the Father to be the judge of the living and the dead. Not Me Nor Anyone Else who walks the Earth. This is why the Judgment and the condemnations that are screamed out by the members of the Westboro Baptist Church are so very very evil--By yelling and screaming at people all they are doing is provoking people defense mechanism--Their fight or Flight response--this is not the way of God the Father--Who Said--"Let Us Reason, Together. "
Notice that is preach the gospel, not hit the person over the head with the Gospel until they finally agree to accept it.

In addition, 1 Corinthians 15: 19-26>>>
If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied. But, in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have died. For since death came through a human being, the resurrection of the dead has also come through a human being; for as all die in Adam, so all will be made alive in Christ. Then comes the end, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father, after he has destroyed ever ruler and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.

This is why we can not let those who would tell other that God hates them to keep spreading that lie. God did mean it when it was written that "God So Loved the World that He Gave His only Begotten Son to Die For it." God is not the god of hate, but of the living. How he will judge is up to Him, whom he will condemn is up to him. Once upon a time it was the Job of the Holy Spirit of convict a person of sin--is not doing the Holy Spirit's Job the ultimate in denying the Holy Spirit's Power?!?!?!

Oh, Do I hear him! It is indeed all to tempting to fight Hate with Hate, but as it was said once on 'Toughed By An Angel'--"'You can not out Hate the Devil.' so do not try. The way to fight Hate Is with LOVE. After all LOVE Is More Powerful."  After all, when I see and hear the actions of Westboro Baptist Church and their gospel of hate and intolerence.

After all, as sure, as they do not have the right to judge, neither do II wish I could write of how I rose above this, but to tell the truth, I am still very much dealing with this temptation to curse out those Haters and the God whom they hide behind.

Speaking of Jobs of the Future that is why I am passing on this e-mail from ENCORE.ORG---Second Acts For A Greater Good;

In the past few days, people in encore careers have been making big news. Second acts for the greater good are gaining momentum and continuing to garner serious national media attention. There’s the patient advocate in The New York Times, the children’s chorus founder in a new Wall Street Journal series, the food bank worker in a Reuters column. Coming up are features on the PBS NewsHour and BBC World Service.
Your voice is important: Your reviews and social media sharing will influence coverage. Please tell your own stories in the comments sections, post links to the articles alongside photos of yourself in your encore career, opine and tweet. In just a couple of minutes, you can play a part in building a movement to harness the vast talent of experienced workers who – in encore careers – can solve the biggest challenges of our time.
Check out the headlines:
Two New York Times pieces recognized socially minded work in the second half of life – one about the kinds of jobs emerging as America ages, and the other about how longer lives present the chance to do good. (The Times notes the $100,000 Purpose Prize, which is accepting nominations through April 4.)
The Wall Street Journal has assembled “The Experts” – a group of notable people from various backgrounds – to comment regularly on retirement-related stories generating buzz. The paper asked founder and CEO Marc Freedman to contribute. Take a look at these short pieces from Marc about finding purpose, living a legacy (instead of just leaving one) and working in an encore career with your spouse.
USA Today, Reuters and the Financial Times of London highlighted Encore Fellowships – opportunities for corporate professionals to transition to nonprofit work – sponsored by such companies as Intel and Goldman Sachs. And, coming soon: segments on BBC’s The Why Factor (a radio program available online) and PBS’ NewsHour about changing attitudes toward retirement and becoming an entrepreneur later in life.

Replace dirty oil with clean offshore wind

Clean offshore wind energy is safer for the oceans and the planet than offshore oil rigs. Tell your Representative to extend the Investment Tax Credit on offshore wind.
Sign today»
It's been nearly three years since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, flooding the Gulf of Mexico with toxic oil. This tragic accident should have been a wake-up call, but today dolphins, sea turtles, and more are still at risk from another spill, and fossil fuel emissions are threatening our entire planet.
It's time to go in a new direction. With offshore wind, we can create energy without polluting our oceans and our air. Offshore wind can harness a clean and infinite source of energy, while eliminating deadly drilling disasters and helping to create many more sustainable jobs than traditional fuel industries.

Let's clean up our act. Tell your Representative to support clean and safe offshore wind energy TODAY»
The biggest barrier to wind is financing. As with other emerging technologies, offshore wind needs a boost to get started. H.R.924, the Incentivizing Offshore Wind Power Act, will help with some of that cost by extending the Investment Tax Credit (ITC) for the first 3,000 MW of offshore wind installed.
It's time to make a change. Support clean offshore wind energy today!

The 21 Principles of Persuasion


How is it that certain people are so incredibly persuasive? Can we all harness those skills? After studying the most influential political, social, business and religious leaders, and trying countless techniques out myself, these are the 21 critical lessons I've identified to persuading people.
Persuasion is not Manipulation – Manipulation is coercion through force to get someone to do something that is not in their own interest. Persuasion is the art of getting people to do things that are in their own best interest that also benefit you.
Persuade the Persuadable - Everyone can be persuaded, given the right timing and context. The first step is always to identify those people that at a given time are persuadable to your point of view and focus your energy and attention on them.

It has been my experience, that it is not Religion that is dangerous, since every religion on Earth claims many lofty goal. The problem becomes the many Extremists in those Religions who insist that they know the Will of their Deity/God/whatever and they are here to teach others The Way, Since they are so all knowing and all wise that the one and only way to heaven is to agree with these Human Extremist.
What is worst, when people do not follow voluntarily, then they coarsest, 'bullied', most especially in a group environment. This is how Churches can indeed become The Very Embodiment of Evil. I am not all knowing and all wise, but I am smart enough to know that no one else is either. This is why I believe so much in agreeing to disagree, since we all must follow our own beliefs and be able to look ourselves in the mirror with at least an ounce of self-respect.

This week the Supreme Court gears up to hear two cases that will decide the fate of same-sex marriage. READ MORE»

I remember I came to accept Equal Marriage, because my sons reminded me of what I taught them about Fairness and Tolerance. I am so glad that my job as a Mother was to Teach them How To Think and NOT What to think. Since they knew how to think, they were and are very capable of teaching Mom.
I remember my younger son also taught me by example. I remember when he was in high school he had and has many friends. Two friends that I remember were two young ladies who liked the card games of Magic and Yu-gi-oh (I may have misspelled) and a few other games, he has and continues to play so many, it is hard to keep up, especially now that he is 22 years old and has become his own man--but back to his high school years and two of his friends which happen to have been a pair of young ladies, who were dating each other, not him; which was cool with him. He was just there as a friend and defender of their privacy, which he respected. This is where I was most proud of him and where I learned the most and gave me hope that the future was in safe hands, indeed.

This is also why I would hope that many would join me in supporting Equal Marriage, for those who have yet to sign this petition, I hope you do so now, but as always, God Gave you Free Will to Sign or Not to sign. I can ask,plead and beg, but each person also has the free will not to and to tell me what I can do with this petition and every other petition. This truth I have always known and I hope I have always respected. This is why I have always presented a case for the petition, before the petition, since no one should be expected to sign any thing without first knowing the why.

The Petition for your consideration, If you have not already signed>>>>
Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will finally hear arguments on the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). If you think it’s wrong to deny basic rights to LGBT Americans, now’s the time to say it.

Help us get to 100,000 strong calling on the Supreme Court to overturn DOMA: Sign your name to support marriage equality

Under DOMA, same-sex couples are denied over 1,000 protections and responsibilities automatically guaranteed to married heterosexual couples. It’s just wrong. Every family deserves the benefits of equal protection under the law, and all Americans deserve the right to marry the person they love.

This movement for equality is growing larger every day. If we keep the pressure on, marriage equality could be a reality by this summer.

          Let’s make this happen.

In Support of A Good Cause, = ! =!! =!!!

I confess that since I work tonight, I will not be able to make it to Washington D.C., in person--BUT, BUT That does not stop me from supporting a Good Cause>>>

Secular Coalition Rally at the Supreme Court

Tomorrow we stand with the United for Marriage coalition

Starting at 8:30am tomorrow, the Secular Coalition will be outside the U.S. Supreme Court with United for Marriage, a coalition of organizations standing in support of marriage equality. Inside, the Court will hear arguments on Proposition 8, California's prohibition on same-sex marriage.
Millions of Americans are still denied the right to marry, even though support for same-sex marriage in the U.S. is at an all-time high. The main motivating factor behind denying this basic human right is religion. Opponents to marriage equality claim "religious liberty" violations, but the courts have already made clear that "no religious officiant is required to solemnize a marriage in contravention of his or her religious beliefs." 
The truth is the other religious clause of the First Amendment, the Establishment Clause, is the principle violated by laws like Proposition 8 that ban same-sex marriage. We reminded the Court that "religious rules cannot be written into law" in the brief signed on to by the Secular Coalition and several allied nontheist organizations.

Join us in defending the secular nature of our government by voicing our opposition to the laws of our country furthering discriminatory religious beliefs!


They claim a coalition of Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists and Americans, but IMO, they should also include us Christians who understand and respect the fact that the United States is a Secular Nation that is Governed was found on the Declaration of Independence and is Governed by a Constitution and a Bill of Rights. While it is true that many of the Founding Fathers were Christian in their beliefs that does not change the fact that each person is free to believe and to practice any beliefs that do not harm others.  This is Why If the Supreme Court is True to the Constitution, then they should follow that with Justice for All, Civil Rights for All, Also and Give the Homosexual Americans the Human Right To Marry the person whom they love, which is also a God Given Right, since God Is Love.

After all, maybe it is me, but I remember back in the day, the worst thing a 'White' girl could do was to bring home a 'Black' Boyfriend--Now, it is this. One day, one day, we shall live up to the Words the end the Gettysburg Address--"It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

I am one who is holding my breath, figuratively speaking, that this nation will have a Second New Birth of Freedom!!!

And, yet, they claim to preach of a loving god. What ever happened to Grace being we get what we do not deserve, because Jesus paid the price for our sin at the Cross.  Yet, they, claim that the left denies God, by disobedience to the Law.  

Well, all I have to say to these Christian Extremists who are under The Law is that I do hope that they have their sacrifice properly prepared and that it is goodly lamb without spot or blemish, as the Law said it should be.  

In addition, as much as Christian Extremist claim that they are being persecuted. The fact of the matter is, from my personal experience, if there was or could be a fair and unbiased study done on 'bullying' we would find the it is the Children of Christian Extremists who are doing the 'Bullying'; which is the exact opposite of being persecuted. Then, again, I have seen how some of these 'Holy Ghost Filled Pain in the asses' walk around as if they have the god given right to Lie, Cheat and Steal, as long as they do it from those whom they can accuse of 'Witchcraft'. Should We Not Be Surprised That Their Children Would Receive The Same Blessing When They Beat Up Some One Whom They Can Call 'Gay'???
