By Joshua Allen

For the second time in as many weeks, the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors will attempt to close Teens Happy Homes.

Scientology Child

By Anastasia , published on Jul 10, 2012

Since the story about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes broke there have been more revelations in the British press about the malevolent and sinister nature of the scientology cult. It’s the little stories that I find most compelling, the anecdotes of the victims, people who have walked out of the shadows into the present light. One that caught my attention at the weekend was that of Astra Woodcraft, a London girl who was co-opted into scientology when she was just a little younger than Suri, the daughter of Cruise and Holmes.

It was 1984 when her mother took her to Saint Hill College, a... (more)

Eunuch Law: Criminalizing the Penis

By Lumiere, published on May 4, 2012

Thomas is not the least bit excited today, he has to appear in court for failure to pay child support. The court ordered him to find employment within 90 days or enlist in the military at the branch of his choice. He must appear with either proof of employment or military enlistment. If he does not provide either, Thomas could lose his testicals under Eunuch Law and spend 30 days in jail. Eunuch Law may sound extreme but it was Emperor Shun and Yu in China, in 2281 BC that passed castration into law as punishment. Castration remained part of Chinese Law through the Zhou Dynasty. Now it is making... (more)

Oh, and don’t make a scene, it’s not good for the children. Now this is important: Gather... (more)

Rise above the darkness and be the light of the world

By Uttam Gill, published on Dec 15, 2011

...and gentlemen the complexities of life we wish to know can be seen in dysfunctional families. When I say dysfunctional, it means the families where anarchy is ruling…where drug abuse is common… Where it is accepted they are born to live like this…where love and passion vanishes…Where child abuse strangulate the sane embryonic thought in the tender soul…Where women are abused…Where each individual loath each other…I am talking about such dysfunctional families. I am neither a crusader against various malice in the society and nor a mute bystander to watch. We all need to talk... (more)

Los Angeles County will not be renewing their contract with America Care foster family agency. America Care was responsible for the care and treatment of over 200 abused and neglected children and has been in business for over a decade.

A 2009 fiscal review found over $234,000 in unsupported or inadequately supported expenditures and over $86,000 in excessive salary payments to 3 individuals.... (more)
