Faithful back to God (**)
and away from the hypocritical duplicity of some religious
institutions which are destroying the little faith left on earth .

Do you wonder.... why in a
recent communication we stated: "Not only we ask our children to fight a
ridiculous and bloody war
(against "terrorism"), a war that will
never be won,..."
us to explain.
One must go to the origin of the Islamist extremist terrorist attacks: They do not want the US to "pollute" their
Iran itself labeled the US as the "Great Satan"
Unfortunately, the US political leaders cannot understand how to exert
influence in a country without making it "like the US" in all aspects.
For example: When you walk into the main shopping mall in Ankara
(Turkey's capital) - if one ignores the writing in a foreign language
one could think the location was New York, Houston or Orange County
(California). Fortunately, the Turkish society, although mostly Muslim,
is rather open and without extremes. However, that same shopping mall
(and display windows) may not be acceptable in Kabul or Baghdad. We
could write pages upon pages of examples which are more subtle yet more
Therefore - what we are facing is a system-rejection
phenomena which may or may not be justified (depending whom you ask),
but exists just the same. In this case, those who are doing the
rejecting use God as their reason and are willing to die (human bombs)
just as the early Christian Martyrs who, for totally different
reasons, believed that they were Glorifying God by becoming martyrs in
the early centuries of Christianity..
Therefore, given an "irresistible force" - religious fanaticism until
death, encountering an "unmovable object" - a refusal by Western Powers
to change their methods to better influence said Muslim countries, will
only yield more terrorism and greater reprisals until one or the other
acknowledges defeat. Now, the question is: Which one?
Consider the following - during the Viet Nam war, the driving force
behind the North Vietnamese was considerably less than the driving
force generated by religious fanaticism; man has not change an iota in
6,000 years; therefore, the "human rules", with the consequential
outcome, that applied in the Viet Nam war still apply.
Mercifully, God will step in before humanity destroys itself to the joy
of satan - nonetheless - there will be rivers of blood flowing before
all will come to a brutal stop.
As we wrote on September 19, 2001 - Terrorism IS NOT the problem;
the problem is Religious Fanaticism. The "brilliant and illuminated"
world leaders have not caught on yet that they are fighting the wrong
enemy thus using ALL the wrong weapons.

Do you ever wonder.... how
people like Mr. Sachs (see Did you
know that....? post of March 24th (1)) get into such exalted
position as a World Economic Guru?
Do you doubt the Word of Jesus when He identified the Prince of this
World? [John 12: 31,
Following are more Wikipedia (2) details on Mr. Sachs' work on
is known for his work as an economic advisor to governments in Latin
America, Eastern Europe, and the former Soviet Union. A trained macro
economist, he led many countries in the transition from communism to
In 1985, Bolivia was undergoing
hyperinflation and was unable to pay back its debt to the International
Monetary Fund. Sachs, an economic advisor to the Bolivian government at
the time, drew up an extensive plan, later known as shock therapy, to
drastically cut inflation by liberalizing the Bolivian market, ending
government subsidies, eliminating quotas, and linking the Bolivian
economy to the US Dollar. After Sachs' plan was implemented, inflation
fell from 20,000% per year to 11%, though according to critics, left
the country worse off than before due to a rise in unemployment, a fall
in industrial output, and a fall in per capita GDP.
In 1990, the Polish government
introduced shock therapy to break from communism. Sachs and ex-IMF
economist David Lipton advised the rapid conversion of all property and
assets from public to private ownership. After initial economic
shortages and inflation, prices in Poland eventually stabilized.
In late 1991, the Russian government
invited Harvard to give advice on reproducing the Polish success.
Harvard economist Andrei Shleifer advised President Yeltsin on
privatization and macroeconomic issues during the early stages of
Russia's reforms. Sachs resigned shortly thereafter.
As we have known - and mostly ignored - for nearly 2,000 years the key
to the only solution to our problems was spelled out by Paul through
his letter to the Ephesians:
our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against
principalities and power, against the rulers of
the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the
high places. [Ephesians 6:12]
Then, our beloved Heavenly Mother, gently hammered upon Her children
for 200 years (3)
how we were to conduct such wrestling.... but, of course, the (deadly)
"conveniences" of this world - the flesh - won out since most of the
Faith "is worn" for others to see instead as a Road Map for living.
But what do we know....? After all..... all of this is from an
unknown face. (4)

ever wonder... Why, according to the published Roman Catholic statistics (1):
(a) In uncomfortable Africa, with
13.2 % of the Bishops of the world, there are 4,565 Catholics per priest available; while
In comfortable Europe, with
33.0 % of the Bishops of the world, there are 1,347 Catholics per priest available; and
In the most devout Catholic part of the world ( Latin America), with 25.5 % of the Bishops of the world, and where people are leaving the True Faith en masse to

the true priorities of the Church Administration.

you wonder.... how badly the Roman Catholic Church continues to handle
its Public Relations? It seems that it just could not get worse... but
then.... it does.
Following is a letter published by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Letters
to the Editor (1)
shows its hateful side in dumping Bozek
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
again the Catholic church has revealed its ugly, hateful, and
hypocritical side. It has chosen to dump Rev. Bozek because he has not
followed the dictates of the Church. What offense he has actually
committed is that he has failed to turn over the cash to the
Archdiocese. It's that simple. Fortunately he is not alone in his
resistence. Unlike the Catholic faithful of the past who went along
with the Crusades, The Inquisition, the silence or complicity with the
Nazis, the tolerance and enabling of the pedophile priests, the
intransigence with regard to women priests, and a host of other ills;
the Catholics of today are much smarter and more charitable than much
of the clergy.
This nonsense will go on as the
faithful leave the
Church in droves. What will be left is the right-wing mentality of sin
and damnation espoused by the likes of Opus Dei and other
demagogues.How sad it is that all of the Church's moves and positions
revolve around money and power. Where does love, tolerance, and
forgiveness fit in this rapidly deteriorating institution? As a cradle
Catholic, I am sick at heart and deeply sad at what might have been.
Let us not forget that this comes at
the heels of the news (2)
that the church has paid
more than $2.6 billion in settlements and related expenses since 1950,
according to an annual report released Friday by the U.S. Conference of
you wonder.... what America needs?
According to former Soviet leader M.
America is in urgent need of its own
'perestroika' and its days as
the world's superpower have ended
, according to former Soviet Union
leader Mikhail Gorbachev. (1)
"President Obamaâ€™s proposals will be bigger than perestroika. I
wish success to Obama and his Cabinet, because the problems he has to
deal with are not easy ones.â€� M. Gorbachev (2)

you still wonder.... why events like the ones which took place in
Germany and Alabama, not only continue but increase in frequency?
Read on and you will find out...
These are just the very recent
high profile events,
however, they are nothing compared with the number of acts of
wanton violence on
worldwide scale which are only featured in the local news. The
Zombies equipped with recorded statements, keep repeating: "We don't
understand." - "What could have caused this?" - "We never
expected this to happen in our town."
To which we respond with our almost recorded message: "If we could
transform the stupidity of political, religious, educational and social
leaders into energy, we could supply the power to keep one whole Galaxy
Allow us to expand on our "recorded message".
+ Our youth is being brought up with wanton violence on TV, Cinema
Movies and Video Games. The young adults are being fed the same fare.
The 40+ crowd are fed the same minus the Video Games.
+ A prime time TV program can make money with only ten minutes of
commercials for every thirty minutes of transmission. That means
the products being peddled for ten minutes are being sold and making
money for their manufacturers.
If that is the brainwashing effect that ten minutes of usually dull and
mindless commercials have, can you imagine what effect the other twenty
minutes of transmission has on impressionable - and not so
impressionable - minds?
Now - when one is watching a violent movie or playing a violent video
game - what in effect is being done is "selling" the viewer, for the
duration of the movie or game, on the destructive behavior being viewed
or played out in fantasy land.
That is the answer to the mechanical "Why's" people keep
repeating like mindless parrots when another tragedy strikes.
Are we the only brilliant and illuminated individuals in the world to
see this? Of course not! (Or at least we certainly hope not!)
Then... Why doesn't anyone do anything about it? For the same
the cell (mobile) phones will continue to multiply even though there
are enough serious scientific studies showing the nefarious effects
that they have on health: MONEY!
Not even the new world's darling - President Obama could stop all of
this even if he wanted to.
Therefore... can you now better understand why God has taken the
situation into His Own Hands and will see that our lifestyle will be
essentially demolished and bring us to the Post Step No. 17 (4)
This - brethren - are our Good News since, if God would not intervene
in a totally decisive manner, we would auto destroy ourselves - soul
first and then the totally corrupt body.
For those who with pollyannish demeanor and honey laden words tells
you: Oh, God would not allow that. His Mercy will find another way.
We will answer: Yes, just as He did after His effort through
Fatima, (5) to get us back on track - the
track we lost 1,600 years ago, failed.
"Lord's will be done"
Sabbath eve, March 6, 2009
Today I drove a highway between Seguin and Lockhart. The scenery
resembled moonscape. Cattle stand on barren fields waiting for someone
to feed them. The radio speaks of financial disasterâ€”people
land lose jobs in record numbers. The stock market falls in stair step
fashionâ€”any temporary gain is followed by losses that not only
gains but further propel the market downward. Businesses
fold one after another after another; seemingly everyone waits for a
I hear of people gathering on courthouse steps to pray for
rain. Others pray that they get to keep their job or that somehow they
won't lose their house.
My first impulse is to join those prayers.
But who benefits if the system in place survives?
I think back to the story of Mosesâ€”how he warned the
Egyptian pharaoh again and again about mistreatment of his people. And
I wonder, are we the new Egyptâ€”a stiff-necked hard-hearted
worried only about our own plight in the world yet oblivious of the
cost the rest of the world must pay to bear our weight?
Do we consider the plight of a third world worker and the
conditions in which he or she works to make the clothes we wear? Or
that 70% of the oil we consume comes from foreign lands and the people
that live atop those lands rarely benefit from the sale of their own
Do we consider that our own government spies on us, tortures and
kills people around the world on our behalf? That this same government
implements rules that favor the few and oppress the many all in the
name of a free market not only in other lands but here as well?
I sold my corn today for $4.25 a bushel. Anyone here have
to tell me that's fair? How much money you think a poor Iraqi or
Ecuadorian got for the tank of gas I bought made from oil under his
land? How much do you think some Chinese worker earned for
what he or she did today?
Forgive me if I fail to make your
About the best I can do at the moment
is to pray, Lord's will be done.
And then wait in fear for what that
As rain falls on the just and the
unjust, so shall the fire.
note: I don't blame the people that paid me $4.25 a bushel for the
corn. That's actually higher than the current spot price and they paid
me above market price voluntarily. The price they're receiving for beef
cattle has fallen as well.
To which we say: Amen!

you ever wonder
why... "religious" mankind do
not seem to get the straight
message from God as it appears in the First Reading of
the Mass of Thursday after Ash Wednesday which we now quote:
Consider that I have set before thee this day life and good, and on the
other hand death and evil:
16 That thou mayst love the Lord thy
God, and walk in his ways, and keep his commandments and ceremonies and
judgments, and thou mayst live, and he may multiply thee, and bless
thee in the land, which thou shalt go in to possess.
17 But if thy heart be turned away,
so that thou wilt not hear, and being deceived with error thou adore
strange gods, and serve them: 18 I foretell thee this day that thou
shalt perish, and shalt remain but a short time in the land, to which
thou shalt pass over the Jordan, and shalt go in to possess it.
19 I call heaven and earth to witness
this day, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and
cursing. Choose therefore life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
20 And that thou mayst love the Lord thy God, and obey his voice, and
adhere to him (for he is thy life, and the length of thy days,) that
thou mayst dwell in the land, for which the Lord swore to thy fathers
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that he would give it them. [Deut 30]
How could God possibly make it
any clearer? With the megaphone!
We rest our case!
