Small Favors And Big Lies Makes For Human Tragedies

By Credo, published on Aug 7, 2007

...suitability, while others of the human species tolerate pandemonium and utter chaos. While history has long ago broached the barriers of technological advancements we still employ ancient remedies to solve an ancient problem. Yet religion has shown us the wisdom of the ages through a man named Jesus, who explained to us that we cannot truly save a person by giving them a fish, because it will last for just one meal, yet may we truly help and save a soul if we show them how to get their own, feeding them for the rest of their lives. There is no solution because the problem truly doesn't... (more)

Who Will Take God To Task

By Frank J Hopkins, published on Aug 7, 2007

...God for lack of love or charity or kindness nor for acts of nature swift and merciless that occur from time to time. My problem with God is that he/she/it is a poor parent, an indifferent caretaker, dysfunctional and fair-weather at best. And no I won't let him/her/it off the hook because of Jesus...you can't always hide behind your son. The crux of my argument is this: God is not responsible for the things that we do either to ourselves or others but is God not responsible for saving us, for helping us...? I am not talking here about asking God for the winning lottery number or to make ... (more)

Lost Images Found in Da Vinci's

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jul 29, 2007

...blessing the bread and wine has triggered so much interest that Web sites connected to the picture have repeatedly crashed. The famous fresco is already the focus of mythical speculation after author Dan Brown based his "The Da Vinci Code" book around the painting, arguing in the novel that Jesus married his follower, Mary Magdelene, and fathered a child. Now Slavisa Pesci, an information technologist, pool cleaner and amateur scholar, says superimposing the "Last Supper" with its mirror-image throws up another picture containing a figure that looks like a Templar knight and another... (more)

San Francisco Was a Major League All-Star Host

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jul 11, 2007

...and I’m just a low-paid freelance writer trying to survive in the most expensive city in the world. There are only a couple of events I would pay that kind of money to see. Maybe if Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin came back from the dead to do a concert. Or possibly the second coming of Jesus Christ. I’d pay five grand to see that, no doubt. Especially if the gift bag included a pass to heaven. I had a great week hanging out with my fellow baseball fans, but the best thing was probably the parade before the game. All of the players drove by and threw stuff to the crowd... (more)

Pope: NonCatholics Going to Hell

By Delores Williams, published on Jul 11, 2007

I always liked Pope John Paul II, but the Catholic Church is back to their usual games of telling other churches they are wrong, and more importantly, they "lack the means of salvation." Yep, that is what he said, but he wants the dialogue to continue. Ok, I have some dialogue for you. What did Jesus Christ say about religious leaders that do their stuff for others to see? How about his views on judging? My favorite, What Scripture did you use to justify your priests lying, raping boys, and stealing from the Church? Perhaps you need a little more dialogue. What did Jesus say about the traditions... (more)

The Holiday Exam for Dating

By Jamie Lake, published on Jul 7, 2007

...and he remained at work, I seized the chance to find the answer I so desperately sought. I asked the perfunctory how was your day? How's work? What's going on? Are you working tomorrow? At this point I threw in my ballsy "well if you're not working tomorrow we should do something." Silence. Jesus, Mary and Joseph. I counted to ten, took some deep breaths and wondered how I'd ever moved beyond my fear of displaying my interest first, to being an aggressive date seeker on a mission (Now I’m not saying waiting around for a sign is the best policy, expressing interest does work with... (more)

LA's NFL Team: The Houston Texans

By J. Lyon Miller, published on Jun 26, 2007

...an out-of-town team), treating the Rams as a bad, Tommy Chong-style brown acid flashback, complete with images of Chris Everett sacking himself in Anaheim, Wendell Tyler fumbling, and the Youngbloods getting worked by the Steelers, and by either a) Worshipping the Raiders more than Jesus, Michael Moore and Hillary combined, or b) Rolling our eyes at Raider Fan for just not getting it- they’re rooting for a team owned by Al Davis. ‘Nuff said (here come the death threats). None of this is necessary. If LA would just embrace a little perspective, we’d see that... (more)

Paul Thorn Band: Rock and Soul Still Live

By GreatMinds, published on May 29, 2007

...is now betraying him; the song makes clear that she has been unfaithful in most of them during their relationship. His background and his music elude neat categorization. Thorn's father was a pentecostal pastor, and Christian themes are salient in his work (consider these titles: "800 Pound Jesus"; "Resurrection Day"; and his live performances. Yet, he makes no claim nor plea relative to that experience nor does he criticize the faithful believers; he simply describes his own experience with it in cheeky ways that ring true, such as in "Mission Temple Fireworks Stand" where the... (more)

Christ & Choquette: What a Claim! Jews and Christians Beware

By Savattra, published on May 8, 2007

Sonia Choquette wrote in her autobiography "Diary of a Psychic" that Jesus Christ taught her to be psychic in a past life. In her book "Ask Your Guides" she claims several past lives in France plus one as an Essene. The Essenes were an ancient Jewish order 2000 years ago who were actively awaiting the promised Messiah from Moses. In the past few years as Choquette's popularity has increased with help from Hay House .... I have witnessed a number of fringe Jews AND Christians become immersed in her work because of these claims. Sonia draws them in because such statements seem to coincide with... (more)
