  • Believers Plan Cannabis-Burning Event at D.C. Basilica During Eclipse

    07/18/2017 3:31:33 PM PDT · by deplorableindc · 18 replies
    A group that believes there is an ancient and little-known connection between Christianity and cannabis plans to burn oil full of psychoactive cannabinoids inside the nation's largest Roman Catholic church during the solar eclipse on August 21. Anne Armstrong, a longtime cannabis activist and leader of Rhode Island’s Healing Church, says she will be shocked if the group’s request for a chapel is denied by the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. Armstrong believes that “the church will say, ‘Welcome, Deaconess Anne, and what room would you like?’” But if she cannot reserve space,...

    On January 20th, 2017, TV viewers were shocked by the stark contrast between the pomp and grandeur of the Presidential inauguration and the angry, violent protests in the nearby streets. At its great civic moments, America calls on the law of God, seeks his blessing in prayer and asks its officials to swear on the Bible. In no other US inauguration ceremony was more honor given to the God of that Bible. More peaceful, but far more ideological were the huge feminist marches of January 21st. These were no mere political reaction to the macho braggadocio of Trump. In fact,...

    A Hindu priest was among various religious leaders who offered prayers at the National Prayer Service of US President Donald Trump on January 21. This is probably the first time a Hindu priest has been called for services at the national prayer service of the presidential inauguration. Narayanachar L. Digalakota from the popular Sri Siva Vishnu Temple in Lanham, Maryland offered prayers at the National Prayer Service at the Washington National Cathedral. Digalakota was joined by by Elder D. Todd Christofferson, Priest Bishop Harry Jackson, and Carlyle Begay to offer prayers for those who govern. The tradition of an inaugural...

"...Hindus would love to request placing a statue of Lord Hanuman, which might become the first Hindu religious monument on public land in USA,” the Universalist Society of Hinduism in Nevada said in a statement on Wednesday.

    As America draws near to the important act of voting, there are some spiritual details we might miss. When, in the first century, Paul wrote to the Christians in Ephesus, the culture was dominated by the worship of the goddess Artemis. A kind of Mother Nature served by galli (homosexual priests), she symbolized human autonomy from the Creator and represented the universal worship of Nature. Acts 19 gives us a sense of the spiritual state of Ephesus and so helps us as we consider our present situation. Architecturally impressive, Ephesus was full of sorcerers, witches and astrologers, who practiced occult...

    Were the Pagan Gods Actually Demons? The Scriptural View and Why It Matters Msgr. Charles Pope • July 6, 2016 • There is a tendency for us to simplistically dismiss the gods of the ancient world as mere figments of human imagination, but the biblical approach is a bit more complex than that.To be clear, at no time in the Scriptures were these gods ever acknowledged to be gods in any true sense of the word. There is only one God and He is the LORD.Consider the following text by St. Paul:For although there may be so-called gods in...

    Now I've seen everything. Is not enough that the Democrats tried to kick God off their platform back in 2008 or how the Democrats have removed God out of the public schools along with the Pledge of Allegiance, now they're adding witch doctors at the Trump rally. Can somebody please fix America quickly? The more you see how the liberal left is loony, the more you have to realize your vote is the most important thing that you will do come November. You see what the rioters are doing to Americans who have voiced their opinion at the ballot box...

    Thousands of witches angered by the lenient sentence given to Stanford rapist Brock Turner have performed a mass hexing after organizing online. As well as creating the event, Hexen posted instructions for the spellcasting ceremony online. Followers were told to get a black candle, piece of string, and a representation of Brock Turner, noting that the candle could be anointed with 'urine, menstrual blood or hexing oil'. Next, the hexers were told to draw a circle of power around themselves for protection - with salt being recommended as a good material - before marking 13 crosses on the candle and...

The page’s description says it was created to “raise awareness of Harambe’s murder” and includes YouTube tributes and memes celebrating the western lowland gorilla and admonishing zoo officials. “Shooting an endangered animal is worse than murder,” a commenter from Denmark named Per Serensen wrote on the page. “Soooo angry.” Lt. Steve Saunders, a spokesman for the Cincinnati Police Department, told the Cincinnati Enquirer that they have no plans to charge...

    “[T]he only way of getting rid of Christianity is to allow it to die little by little.” – Adolf Hitler Yes, there have been evil men who have done evil things in the name of false Christianity. To a limited degree, Adolf Hitler was one such man. Still, and as even he frequently admitted outside the public eye, he was no Christian. As a counterweight to stigma associated with the tens of millions slaughtered in the 20th century alone under the atheist regimes of Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, et al., the secular left is quick to thunder, “But what...

    “Christians are ‘called to resist’ Trump.” So read the headline accompanying a polemic authored by Rev. Dr. David Gushee, Director of the Center for Theology and Public Life at Mercer University in Georgia. It was published this past week by Religion News Service, which provides left-of-center religious news and commentary to more than 100 media outlets, including the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune and Huffington Post. The “call” to which Gushee referred is a statement (which he helped draft) that was released last month by “a multiracial group of Christian ministers and scholars.” The group condemns Donald Trump, they say, because...

    Nehemiah served in a pagan government as a believer in God. He was humble and respectful to the king, but proper fear of his king did not stop him from acting to save his people. He prayed to God and made a request of the king, asking for permission to go to Jerusalem to rebuild it. He also asked for letters that he might present to various governors for safe conduct, and even a grant for building materials. Not all the pagan governors were sanguine toward Nehemiah and his plans. Indeed, some were fiercely resistant to them. When Sanballat the...

    The questions were coming fast and frantic: How strong was the earthquake? Was it on the San Andreas? Is the Big One coming? A massive temblor had struck near Joshua Tree shortly before 10 p.m., causing buildings to sway all the way to Las Vegas. As the public braced for more shaking, the media flocked to Caltech that night in 1992. One woman seemed to have all the answers. It was a magnitude 6.1, explained U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Lucy Jones, and the odds of a larger quake in the next three days stood at 15%. She shifted her weight...

    Given its huge success in describing the natural world for the past 150 years, the theory of evolution is remarkably misunderstood. In a recent episode of the Australian series of "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here", former cricket star Shane Warne questioned the theory - asking "if humans evolved from monkeys, why haven't today's monkeys evolved"? Similarly, a head teacher from a primary school in the UK recently stated that evolution is a theory rather than a fact. This is despite the fact that children in the UK start learning about evolution in Year 6 (ten to 11-year-olds),...

    ABOARD THE PAPAL AIRLINER -- Inserting himself into the Republican presidential race, Pope Francis on Wednesday suggested that Donald J. Trump "is not Christian" because of the harshness of his campaign promises to deport more immigrants and force Mexico to pay for a wall along the border. "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian," Francis said when a reporter asked him about Mr. Trump on the papal airliner as he returned to Rome after his six-day visit to Mexico.

    Ken Ham, a biologist and supporter of young Earth creationism, said evolution is a "belief," not a "theory" -- a "fairy tale" for people who "try to explain life without God" -- and he added that the secular State has established a church, the "Church of Evolution, with Darwin as the High Priest," and teachers and professors as "priests" who push the Darwin religion in the schools. In an interview on VCY America on Feb. 10, two days before the international Darwin Day, host Jim Schneider said to Ken Ham, "I was disturbed in my spirit to hear we have...

    Scientists involved in Hawaii astronomy are hopeful that builders of a giant telescope planned for a mountain held sacred by Native Hawaiians don't give up on the project. A recent state Supreme Court decision invalidated the $1.4 billion project's permit to build on conservation land, which could delay construction by several years. The nonprofit company building the Thirty Meter Telescope hasn't yet indicated its next move. Protesters say they will continue to fight the telescope. ...
