West Hawaii Today ^ | May 31, 2014 | John Burnett

Raghunatha John Giuffre knows how it feels to return from the dead.

The 49-year-old Wainaku man was the third and final person stabbed during a spree that took place around midnight May 23, and the only one who reportedly knew the alleged assailant, 28-year-old Varaha Nrsngha Mims. [snip]

“He had taken a hatchet to the temple room and went after the god that dispels demons and ghosts,” Giuffre said. “We have 10 deities on our altar....

I wonder if one of those ten is Hanuman...the "god" Obama carries in his pocket for "luck"

Obama seeks Hanuman’s blessing
PTI
New York, June 09, 2008

Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic party’s presidential nominee, is seeking the blessings of Hindu god Hanuman in his battle for the White House.

The 46-year-old senator from Illinois, who defeated his rival Hillary Clinton in an epic 17-month long electoral battle for Democratic party nomination, carries a “tiny monkey god” apparently representing “Hanuman” with him for good luck.

A recent photo posted on Time’s White House Photo of the Day collection shows the first ever Black-American nominee of a major US party for the Presidential elections carries with him a bracelet belonging to an American soldier deployed in Iraq, a gambler’s lucky chit, a tiny monkey god and tiny Madonna and child.

That “tiny monkey god,” of course, appears to be a statue of the Hindu monkey god, Hanuman, says the posting but editors and the photographer has not identified it as such.

Obama, whose father was a Kenyan and mother a white woman from Kansas, spent initial days of his life in Indonesia where Hinduism is a popular religion.

Hare Krishnas??? And one of them went on a stabbing rampage? Oh and surprise surprise, he’s another mental case which obviously is the fault of the NRA once again. So let’s go back to completely ignoring the fact that we have a major problem in this country with schizophrenics running around who are not taking their medication because we don’t want to hurt their feelings by forcing them and again focus on getting guns/knives and other inanimate objects off the street.

The Hare Krishnas here in Florida had a problem a number of years ago with child abuse, child molesting and the stockpiling of weapons (although I believe it was through their connection with a Krishna center in Virginia, which was much worse and where several people were arrested and are now in jail). They have since become perfectly harmless.

However, a lot of whackjobs do get into these groups. Some of them wash out, and some of them don’t...until too late.

I thought Hare Krishnas were all “peace” & stuff. Lucky me. Haven’t seen any of those guys since the 70s.

And to think, forty years ago the Hare Krishnas were infesting the airports begging for money or trying to “sell” you one of their books for a high price.

I saw one man being hassled by some teen girl trying to sell him a book for $5.00. To get rid of her he bought one and handed her a $20.00 bill. She took the money and took off with the $20. He promptly filed a complaint as she had “ripped him off”.

We need to convince killers to use Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals as their murder weapon of choice thereby forcing the leftists to ban its sale in America.

The sad fact is, people are needy for God. If they are raised without a practical, logical faith (I admit I am biased towards the traditional Christianity of our founding fathers) then they are subject to picking up any nonsense that floats down the pike.

One of these Hindu type religions several years ago was a scene of a mass poisoning of an entire town. Just google “Antelope bioterror” and find the worst documented recent bioterror attack in our history.

apparently the grownup offspring of the original devotees are normal ,debauched people like the rest of the material society they used to disdain . Except they have weird unpronounceable un-American names , proclivities towards drug use and rage . Oddly , the sitting Congresswoman ( one of 2) from Hawaii , Tulsi Gabbard , also hails from this nuvo-Hindu type of upbringing and background . Her parents were followers of a particular Hindu cult leader , but not the Krsna cultists . All these under currents . Who knows what’s really going on ?

the Bhagavan Shree Rajneesh cult’s attempt to consolidate political power in Antelope Oregon . That got him deported and he died in India , unrepentant , and still in possession of his 40+ Rolls Royces .

and people are stupid enough to think of this as ‘spiritual’ ?

Oh, I agree. The Christian churches no longer preach Christ and barely even mention God. They blither on about the environment, the “poor,” or any meaningless thing you could get at your local Democratic party headquarters.

And we wonder why people go to the Krishnas?

The thing that gets me, is that it seems the main conspirators were his two aides. They practically murdered a whole bunch of people (an infant that was poisoned barely survived) threatened an entire community - it takes a particular brand of evil to pour typhoid bacteria on a salad bar knowing all kinds of people will eat it - infirm, children, etc. Salmonella gives you bloody diarrhea, makes you feel like you are going to die.

Now, note this final sentence from the wiki article, which falls under the I guess the Swiss are even dumber than we are category sometimes:

The 1984 Rajneeshee bioterror attack was the food poisoning of 751 individuals in The Dalles, Oregon, United States, through the deliberate contamination of salad bars at ten local restaurants with salmonella....

On July 22, 1986, both women entered Alford pleas for the salmonella poisoning and the other charges, and received sentences ranging from three to twenty years, to be served concurrently. Sheela received 20 years for the attempted murder of Rajneesh’s physician, twenty years for first-degree assault in the poisoning of Judge Hulse, ten years for second-degree assault in the poisoning of Commissioner Matthews, four and a half years for her role in the salmonella poisoning, four and a half years for the wiretapping conspiracy, and five years’ probation for immigration fraud; Puja received fifteen, fifteen, seven and a half, and four and a half years, respectively, for her role in the first four of these crimes, as well as three years’ probation for the wiretapping conspiracy.

BOTH SHEELA AND PUJA WERE RELEASED ON PAROLE EARLY FOR GOOD BEHAVIOR, AFTER SERVING TWENTY-NINE MONTHS IN A MINIMUM SECURITY PRISON. SHEELA’S GREEN CARD WAS REVOKED, SHE MOVED TO SWITZERLAND AND WENT ON TO RUN TWO NURSING HOMES THERE.

So why worry about being convicted of crimes at all? All I can say is, these people are darn lucky I am not dictator of OR, because they would NEVER see the light of day again.

Knowing what I know about intestinal problems in folks, I guarantee you at least one of these folks died somewhere down the road, or their guts have never been right again. Not to mention that the seven salad bar owners had their businesses shut down - how’s that for death of a dream? That’s a killer for some folks.

No way these ladies went through anything near the pain of their victims.

Sounds like the stabber was a fighter with uncontrolled anger problems. And my guess is that he is an acute schizophrenic.

“Acute schizophrenia is also known as Reactive Schizophrenia or Type I schizophrenia. It is usually manifested quite suddenly, often as a reaction to a significant stressor.

“It is often more amenable to treatment than the chronic form of schizophrenia, (also known as process schizophrenia). Symptoms include psychosis and typically include delusions, hallucinations and thought disorder.

“Acute schizophrenia resembles amphetamine psychosis.”

I asked the cops if I pressed the charges, would we be able to get him into a medical program where he could get a time out? … And they said, no, it’s his first offense. He’ll probably be out in an hour after posting bail. And at that point … I become a target.

Translation: The cops didn't want to do the paperwork.

The response of the community is what small-town Hawaii is.

That is absolutely correct.

Good thing everyone remembers that this is a group of disturbed people who in no way represent the actual teachings of Hinduism.

Because it’s not like disturbed people have ever commited crimes in the name of Christianity before, while others tried to claim they represented actual Christian teachings.

Right?

Oh, and as for the “monkey god” mockery, that’s nothing. I know of a religion who’s members carry around idols of their God being tortured to a bloody death, and who carry out rituals where they claim to be eating his flesh and drinking his blood.

So it’s a good thing that respect for the deeper, more profound meanings of what people could easily mock still prevails, rather than knee-jerk judgments based on ignorance.

Right?
