    New World Order, New World Religion By Jean F. Drew     Executive Summary: Our thesis is the New World Order needs a “new age” religion to back it up. “Old age” religions obligate their followers to a moral code ill-suited to “new age” progressivist designs and purposes. So people worldwide need to be “re-trained” in the spirituality department. Perhaps a clue as to what sort of training this would be can be found at the United Nations itself. The U.N. has chartered two NGOs — World Goodwill and Lucis Trust — which serve as advisors to various U.N....

    HAITI-JUDGING, GOD'S JUDGMENTS & CHRISTIAN LOVE And yet, we have no right to claim that we know why a disaster like the earthquake in Haiti happened at just that place and at just that moment That depends. This exhortation from Scripture should give all of us pause about glib, surface, carnal, fleshy judgments of others: Luke 19:22 (Amplified Bible) 22He said to the servant, I will judge and condemn you out of your own mouth, you wicked slave! You knew [did you] that I was a stern (hard, severe) man, picking up what I did not lay down, and reaping...

    I'd like to thank everyone in the Catholic Caucus who participated in the "Defense of the Faith" thread, and open up a new topic of discussion under the "Ecumenical" heading. I'll post the rules from the Religion Moderator in a moment. First of all, I'd like to hear from all confessions why it is that so many of our open religion threads so quickly descend into the worst bickering. Insults are freely flung about, hiding behind the "impersonal" barrier of attacking churches instead of the people who attend them. Don't anyone say they don't know what I mean, unless you...
  • Octo-Mom Health Scare: Having Uterus Removed

    Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman is leaving her children for up to a week while she checks into the hospital to have benign fibroid tumors removed from her uterus. The procedure, which will be done at the hospital where she gave birth to the octuplets at in January, will make further pregnancies virtually impossible! In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Nadya says doctors discovered the fibroids before her last pregnancy and that they must be removed to prevent cancer. Nadya says she is "terrified" to go under the knife and that she has to make a will before surgery. She also reveals...

    Homeless, 9, and coping with a hard life For Brehanna, a loss of school, friends and a beloved stuffed animal PORTLAND, Ore. - At first, 9-year-old Brehanna didn't seem to understand. Her family was being evicted from their home in Tualatin, a Portland suburb. Her father, Joe Ledesma, a homebuilder for 20 years, was without a job and couldn't find another. He couldn't pay the $800 rent on the three-bedroom house where he, his wife Heidi and daughter lived. And he couldn't get through to Brehanna as they packed the family's navy blue 1986 Pontiac Firebird that she would not...

    Her son lay dead in his casket. Marija Vukomanovic held fast to her faith. The pastor told mourners about Lazarus, who rose from the dead. The mother knelt and reached for her boy. "I believed in the miracle, so I touched his heart," Vukomanovic said. Nothing happened. Mario Vukomanovic, 23, war refugee, star student and drug addict, was gone, shot dead as he tried to rob a south Orange County pharmacy April 1 at gunpoint. Orange County deputies said the shooting was self-defense. "But now I have another miracle," the mother said in an interview this week. She forgave the...

    Compassionate conservatism works because it addresses people as individuals rather than as faceless units in a throng. Conservative Compassion Vs. Liberal Pity A remarkable feature of President Bush's pronouncements is his unashamed use of the "L" word. Mr. Bush calls his political philosophy "compassionate conservatism," but he is not afraid to say the older, stronger word that gives that philosophy its meaning. The word is love. Mr. Bush used the word when, during the presidential campaign, he was confronted by a man who spoke loosely and negligently of illegitimate children and the welfare system. When the man uttered the...
