“Do not give your strength to women, nor your ways to that which destroys kings.” - Hebrew proverb

This wisdom extends to women as well. Exchange the word “women” to “men” and follow my line of thought. My energy being limited, like all of my resources, I must allocate it with economy. Pursuing the opposite sex opens black holes, that will swallow my impetus quickly, leaving me lacking the necessary resources to handle my responsibilities and weakening my resolve to improve myself. Relationships take work, and in this case, less is more. The amount of time, energy, and money expended... Read More

Pastor Fred Phelps (a self-described "Primitive Baptist" preacher fixated on the few Biblical passages that mention homosexuality) and freaks are mainly an all relatives church of roughly 60 people who resemble more of a cult than a religious congregation. After protesting at a military funeral of a non gay serviceman to promote their message, the father of the dead soldier fought back by filing a $2.9 million lawsuit for invasion of privacy and intent to inflict emotional distress.

The question that lays before the Supreme Court is whether the first amendment right of free speech should... Read More

A few years ago an attempt was made in Australia to stop Santa Claus giving his jolly Ho, Ho, Ho greeting to children, substituting Ha, Ha, Ha in its place, anodyne and wholly (!) without any kind of character or provenance. Why? Because ho is slang in America for, well, a ho!

That’s just the sort of thing that would be bound to upset every Australian girl and boy, just as it annoyed every Australian parent, many of whom were discovering for the first time what a ho was and what the jolly old, red-nosed (possible alcohol problem?) fellow was calling for.

Generally speaking Santa... Read More

Questioning one's life values...

I sometimes have difficulty coming to terms with the modern world's culture and often ask myself what is it really all worth for the next generation. What kind of world is it that we honestly desire for our children? Are we really conscience of the choices we make and of the consequences of our decision making for future generations?

In my daily work with at-risk children and young people during my last 20 years in Brazil, I like to believe that what we are offering those children through my organisation, the Children At Risk Foundation, are life... Read More

On June 19th, 1960, Dwight Eisenhower, the thirty-fourth president of the United States, was at the end of his second term and the election of John F Kennedy as his successor was still five months away. America was in a less jaded period of its history, unmarred by the Vietnam war, assassinations, Watergate, presidential impeachment proceedings, resignations, Afghanistan, Iraq or Iran. It was before the twin towers were ever conceived, the Beatles were ever heard of and the Civil Rights movement hadn’t seen its dawn. Singer Pat Boone cut the ribbon for what is dimly remembered as an echo... Read More

After 5 years Congress has restored funding for U.S. inspectors to oversee horse slaughters in the U.S. They have paved the way for the slaughter and processing of horses to take place in the U.S. for the first time since 1996, when horse slaughtering in the U.S. was de-facto made illegal.

The US has no outright ban on horse slaughter. Only 2 states have an outright ban and others regulate the sale of horse meat. When Congress stopped funding inspections it meant that the USDA had to find money within its own budget if it wished to conduct inspections and certify the horse meat.... Read More

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is -- His good, pleasing and perfect will. -- Romans 12:2

I always wanted to sing, but never had any confidence in my voice, nor did I ever learn to read music. Still, that didn't discourage me from joining the First Baptist Church youth choir. The summer trips were great; the youth musicals inspiring, the snack suppers worth the effort. The choir sounded great too, but I can take no credit for that. I did not want to... Read More
