“OIH, DAVID! BLAME THE RIGHT PEOPLE FOR POVERTY AND STARVATION!”

January 6, 2015

david-attenborough-e1359327784336There is too much ‘over population’ propaganda coming from too many people who really should know better.  Yes, people like you David Attenborough.  ‘We are a plague on the Earth’???  Is that what you think of humanity?

http://churchandstate.org.uk/2013/01/sir-david-attenborough-we-are-plague-on-earth/

The ‘Network for Church Monitoring’ (see above link) promote the mantra that ‘religions’ are causing over-population and that poor people MUST stop breeding!  Yes, some religions are stupid, some promote breeding to increase their numbers, but they aren’t the main reason people have big families. The main reason is poverty. Parents NEED many hands to forage, grow plants, tend flocks, look after them in their old age, etc, etc.. it is the desperation of poverty that drives population.

More successful countries with better social provision create populations that are not driven by desperation and need less children. To underscore this correlation look at third world countries that begin to prosper and provide, equality, security, social support and you will see that a reducing population follows. Some EU countries are experiencing NEGATIVE population growth and without immigration their economies would COLLAPSE!

The ‘stop breeding’ proponents amongst us have simply swallowed the lies of the 1%, who now own nearly 50% of the world’s resources. They buy up resources, to create artificial scarcity, to ramp up prices to create more profit.  Meanwhile, the poorest 50% of the world must try to survive on 1% of the world’s resources! The 1% and their corporate oligarchy are THE major cause of starvation. The 1% starve millions of people to DEATH every year.

TAX the 1% back to being mere millionaires and give the poorest half of the world THEIR half of the planets resources, so they are no longer desperate… and watch the population growth fall.

Humanity is NOT a ‘plague’, we are simply ‘infected’… but THAT is curable.

Was Jesus a martyr?

May 25, 2014

The rule of Rome in Judea was long and grim. Many Jewish rebel leaders came and went (to their deaths). There were many people referred to as Jesus Christ.

This is a title, not a family name. Jesus Christ means ‘Savior Messiah’. So the definition of ‘Christian’ is actually ‘a messianic’, ‘someone who believes someone will come to free Judea from Rome’.

Did Christianity free Christians from the rule of Rome? The opposite can be demonstrated to be trmyselfue.

A word that is NOT generally used for Christianity’s ‘Savior Messiah’ is ‘martyr’. Were all the ‘Savior Messiahs’ not martyrs for their cause? Was ‘Jesus Christ’ another martyr? Is his death any more tragic than that of any of the previous Savior Messiahs? If he was God, or sent by God, would God choose to come down, or send him down, to be just another in a long line of failed Savior Messiahs?

I think it is telling, that the supposed ‘uniqueness’ of his (self) sacrifice, is actually nothing of the sort. It has been spun via the Roman gospels as ‘substitutionary atonement’ and so somehow His death becomes a more important and more painful death than any other Savior Messiah before him. I don’t buy it.

I think the word ‘martyr’ has been consciously avoided by the Roman Church, because it would provide a more logical alternative to their dogma of substitutionary atonement. As a ‘martyr’ Jesus would just be like thousands of other martyrs, who were willing to die for their cause. I can respect a martyr, I cannot respect a cynical ploy by the Roman Catholic Church to engender guilt in humanity for their ‘sins’.

A sin is a ‘bad choice’. An omniscient God would know, in advance of creating us, that we were going to make these ‘bad choices’ so He would NOT punish us for them. Would a ‘real’ father kill his son, or ANY of his children, regardless of their ‘sins’? Surely not.

If Jesus was a real man, he was simply a martyr for his cause; He DIED. He was not a suicidal god; because a god cannot die. If He did die, but rose again (because he was a god), then he rose because He could NOT die, so he did NOT die for our sins. If he DID die, he was NOT God, if he was NOT God then Christianity is a lie. QED.

THE TWIN EVILS OF ISLAMOPHOBIA AND CATHOLICOPHOBIA?

April 11, 2013

ISLAMAPHOBIA is a catchy but erroneous label that is thrown at anyone who may love Muslims, but who hates the theology of Islam. Here is the ‘official’ definition, followed by a ‘suggested’ similar approach to the hatred of Catholic theology, because it seems it is equally wrong to attack Catholicism.

ISLAMOPHOBIA – Runnymede Trust has identified eight components that they say define Islamophobia. This definition, from the 1997 document ‘Islamophobia: A Challenge For Us All’ is widely accepted, including by the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia.
The eight components are:

1) Islam is seen as a monolithic bloc, static and unresponsive to change.
2) Islam is seen as separate and ‘other’. It does not have values in common with other cultures, is not affected by them and does not influence them.
3) Islam is seen as inferior to the West. It is seen as barbaric, irrational, primitive and sexist.
4) Islam is seen as violent, aggressive, threatening, supportive of terrorism and engaged in a ‘clash of civilisations’.
5) Islam is seen as a political ideology and is used for political or military advantage.
6) Criticisms made of the West by Islam are rejected out of hand.
7) Hostility towards Islam is used to justify discriminatory practices towards Muslims and exclusion of Muslims from mainstream society.
8) Anti-Muslim hostility is seen as natural or normal.

CATHOLICOPHOBIA – Rouxnymede Trust has identified eight components that they say define Catholicophobia. This definition, from the forthcoming document ‘Catholicophobia: A Challenge For Us All’ is widely anticipated, including by RouX’s European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia.
The eight components are:

1) Catholicism is seen as a monolithic bloc, static and unresponsive to change. Which it is. A single ‘infallible’ person heads it and he goes by an infallible 2,000 year old book of law.
2) Catholicism is seen as separate and ‘other’. It does not have values in common with other cultures, is not affected by them and does not influence them. Which it is. It is not just ‘separate and other’, it is controlled by an other worldly being! In the West we put secular law above the ‘law of god’. We put the well-being of children above the well-being of priests.
3) Catholicism is seen as inferior to the West. It is seen as barbaric, irrational, primitive and sexist. Which it is (see above). Note also there are no females in positions of authority.
4) Catholicism is seen as violent, aggressive, threatening, supportive of US terrorism and engaged in a ‘clash of civilisations’. Which it is (see also above).
5) Catholicism is seen as a political ideology and is used for political or military advantage. Which it is (see above).
6) Criticisms made of the West by Catholicism are rejected out of hand. Not always, Western Democracy admits it is far from perfect.
7) Hostility towards Catholicism is used to justify discriminatory practices towards Catholics and exclusion of Catholics from mainstream society. No, people have a right to their personal ‘beliefs’, we just want all the pedophile priests prosecuted and convicted where appropriate. We certainly want to exclude these priests from working with children.
8) Anti-Catholic hostility is seen as natural or normal. No, hostility against an organisation that protects pedophiles is natural and normal.
