    Church officials say they will “combat evil” by hosting a positive worship service to counter a Harvard group’s Satanic mass planned for Monday evening. The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston will host a Eucharistic procession from MIT to a nearby church for an hour of prayer, The Boston Globe reports. The religious procession will end up at St. Paul’s Parish in Harvard Square, just a 10-minutes walk from the Queen’s Head Pub in Memorial Hall the Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club is set to hold a “black mass.” A black mass is a ritual performed as a parody of the...

    Sean Penn Appointed Haitian Ambassador LOS ANGELES, USA (defend.ht) - Sean Penn has accepted the job of Ambassador for Haiti, where he has spent the last two years managing a tent camp for displaced Haitians after the earthquake. Sean Penn will now be the "ambassador at large" for the Caribbean nation. Penn was offered the position by Haitian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Laurent Lamothe, while at the Cinema for Peace benefit in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Picking up a humanitarian award for his work in Haiti, he told the crowd: "I do accept [the job]," before adding it would...

    An immigrant group based in Bern has called for the emblematic white cross to be removed from the Swiss national flag because as a Christian symbol it "no longer corresponds to today's multicultural Switzerland." Ivica Petrusic, the vice president of Second@s Plus, a lobbying group that represents mostly Muslim second-generation foreigners in Switzerland (who colloquially are known as secondos) says the group will launch a nationwide campaign in October to ask Swiss citizens to consider adopting a flag that is less offensive to Muslim immigrants. In a September 18 interview with the Swiss newspaper Aargauer Zeitung, Petrusic said the cross...

    Mel Gibson, under investigation for domestic violence, admits to hitting Oksana Grigorieva and TWICE threatens to kill her in an explosive new audio tape obtained and released exclusively by RadarOnline.com. The enraged actor tells the mother of his eight-month old daughter Lucia “you deserved it” after she says that he hit her and broke her teeth. Mel’s stunning admission could be a powerful piece of evidence against him in the criminal investigation that is headed for the district attorney’s office and right now being conducted by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. The new tape features a ranting, out-of-control, Mel who...

    Why God Hates Haiti The frustrating theology of suffering. By Lisa Miller | NEWSWEEK Published Jan 15, 2010 From the magazine issue dated Jan 25, 2010 Haiti is surely a Job among nations. It is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere: half its population lives on less than a dollar a day. With 98 percent of its forests felled and burned for firewood, Haiti is uniquely vulnerable to flooding from hurricanes. In 2008 four storms in as many weeks left a million homeless. Haiti has an infant-mortality rate worse than that of many African nations, and its people are...
  • Haitian Voodoo

    01/14/2010 8:58:04 PM PST · by T.L.Sink · 33 replies · 1,482+ views
    Roman Catholicism may be the nominal faith in Haiti but voodoo is the true national religion. Closely related to this is the common practice of santeria, animal sacrifice. The most egregious African superstitions have merged with a superficial and distorted version of Christianity to produce a primordial blend of arrant nonsense that has created a cult of barbarism. Haiti is not the most impoverished and backward nation in the Western hemisphere simply by happenstance. It remains, as it always has, beyond the pale of civilization. And all the romanticizing of the Haitian people by the MSM won't change that reality.

    US evangelical preacher Pat Robertson levied blame Wednesday for the devastating earthquake in Haiti on Haitians themselves, saying that the country "swore a pact to the devil" at its creation. "Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it," Robertson said on his Christian Broadcasting Network show "The 700 Club." Haitians were originally "under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon the third, or whatever. And they got together and swore a pact to the devil," said the 80-year-old former presidential candidate. "They said, we will serve you if you will...

    THE BOOK OF MOSIAH CHAPTER 12 Abinadi is imprisoned for prophesying the destruction of the people and the death of King Noah—The false priests quote the scriptures and pretend to keep the law of Moses—Abinadi begins to teach them the Ten Commandments. About 148 B.C.   1 And it came to pass that *after the space of two years that Abinadi came among them in disguise, that they knew him not, and began to aprophesy among them, saying: Thus has the Lord commanded me, saying—Abinadi, go and prophesy unto this my people, for they have hardened their hearts against my...

    Most anybody in the mortgage business will tell you that August was a month that will live in infamy: The market was in turmoil, as doubts about the stability of subprime loans spread to other sectors of the mortgage world. How bad was it? A survey of mortgage brokers suggests that one in three consumers who recently signed purchase contracts canceled in August -- up from just 4 percent three years ago, according to the research firm that conducted the survey for Inside Mortgage Finance, a trade journal. The cancellation rate undoubtedly was fed by two scenarios playing out: Many...

    I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a terrible truth - Europe died in Auschwitz. We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world. The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned. And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove...

    Just hours before Iran's first World Cup match in Nuremberg, prominent German politicians and Jewish leaders marched to protest against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahamdinejad, who denies the Holocaust and questions Israel's right to exist. The protesters want to keep him from visiting Germany if Iran's team advances. "Israel is on the Map to Stay!" A boy participates in a major demonstration against the policies of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Participants in the demonstration against anti-Semitism carry signs, with the one on the left reading "red card for Ahmadinedschad," which uses a soccer term signifying dismissal from a match, to allude...

This year we were given a new slogan, "The Impossible will come Alive in 2005". As the veil of darkness begins to come down over nations and regions, along with great shakings will come great breakthroughs; signs, wonders, healings and a spectacular release of miracles in impossible circumstances.

    In the wake of voter approval of a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage in Oklahoma and controversy within the Episcopalian Church concerning the consecration of a gay bishop last year, the Rev. Dr. T. Lee Stevens of St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Bartlesville took on the subject of "Homosexuality in the Scriptures" during a public forum held Tuesday. The forum, sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Bartlesville, was the latest in a series on a variety of subjects held regularly at the church. Stevens began the discussion by describing that he and some members of St. Luke's began...

    Bronson Arroyo got an extra day to think about the biggest start of his career, and the biggest game of the Boston Red Sox's season. After Curt Schilling and Pedro Martinez couldn't get the Red Sox a win against the New York Yankees in the first two games of the AL championship series, Arroyo will take the hill for Game 3 at Fenway Park. Stumbling home in an 0-2 hole and with Schilling possibly done for the series, the Red Sox are hoping the familiar surroundings of Fenway Park help get them back in the ALCS. Arroyo was set to...
