Portugal approves citizenship plan for Sephardic Jews persecuted by the Inquisition


Portugal approves citizenship plan for Sephardic Jews persecuted by the Inquisition

Barry Hatton
LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Five centuries after burning thousands of Jews at the stake, forcing them to convert to Catholicism or expelling them, Portugal is granting citizenship rights to their descendants as part of an attempt to make amends.
The Portuguese Cabinet on Thursday approved a law offering dual citizenship to the descendants of those Sephardic Jews — the term commonly used for those who once lived in the Iberian peninsula.
Like Spain, Portugal says its sole reason for granting citizenship is to redress a historic wrong.
"There is no possibility to amend what was done," Portuguese Justice Minister Paula Teixeira da Cruz said. "I would say it is the attribution of a right."
The measure is the latest step in Portugal's modern efforts to atone for its past harsh treatment of Jews, whose ranks once numbered in the tens of thousands, but have been reduced to only about 1,000 today.
In 1988, then-president Mario Soares met with members of Portugal's Jewish community and formally apologized for the Inquisition. In 2000, the leader of Portugal's Roman Catholics publicly apologized for the suffering imposed on Jews by the Catholic Church, and in 2008 a monument to the dead was erected outside the Sao Domingos church where the massacre of thousands of Jews began at Easter in 1506.
Jose Ribeiro e Castro, a lawmaker who was involved in drafting the legislation, sees the persecution of Sephardic Jews as a "stain" on Portuguese history.
"We wish it had never happened," Ribeiro e Castro said. "Given that it did happen, and that it can be put right, we thought we ought to do so."
"We regard it as an act of justice," Michael Rothwell, a delegate of the Committee of the Jewish Community of Oporto, said of the new law. He described it as "another important step toward reconciliation with the past."
The Portuguese Inquisition, established in 1536, could be more cruel than its Spanish counterpart. It persecuted, tortured and burned at the stake tens of thousands of Jews.

Jews prove critical to founding of America


Jews prove critical to founding of America

Bill Federer
In 1492, Columbus was sent to find a sea route to India and China by the Spanish Monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella, who had just liberated Spain from 700 years of Muslim occupying forces.

Spain then forced Sephardic Jews to flee.
Some Jews went to the Ottoman Empire, and some went to Portugal and then went to Amsterdam. From Amsterdam, some Jews sailed with Dutch merchants to South America, settling in the city of Recife. In Recife, they built the first synagogue in the Americas, Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue.
When Spain and Portugal attacked Recife, the Jews fled again.
Twenty-three sailed to Port Royal, Jamaica, then, on the French ship Sainte Catherine, they arrived in 1654 at the Dutch Colony of New Amsterdam, becoming the first Jews in North America.
Dutch Governor Peter Stuyvesant attempted to expel them, but they were allowed to stay, as the Dutch West India Company in Holland considered Spain and Portugal its main enemies, not Jews or other dissenters.
The Dutch were in a global contest with Spain and Portugal over possessions in Indonesia, India, Africa and South America, and so they wanted to quickly populate the colony of New Netherlands for its defense and profitability.
In 1663, the Dutch West India Company, while officially establishing the Dutch Reformed faith, instructed Peter Stuyvesant regarding Quakers “and other sectarians”: “Immigration … must be favored at so tender a stage of the country’s existence, you may therefore shut your eyes, at least not force people’s consciences, but allow everyone to have his own belief, as long as he behaves quietly and legally, gives no offense to his neighbors and does not oppose the government.”
Jews in New Amsterdam were not allowed to worship outside their homes or join the city’s militia.
Then, in 1664, British forces took control of New Amsterdam, renaming it New York, and Jews gained more freedom.
In 1730, Jewish citizens in New York bought land and built the small “Mill Street Synagogue,” the first Jewish house of worship in North America.
During the colonial era, America’s population grew to 3 million, with a Jewish population of around 2,000 in seven Sephadic congregations:
·         Shearith Israel, New York City, begun 1655;
·         Yeshuat Israel, Newport, Rhode Island, begun 1658;
·         Mickve Israel, Savannah, Georgia, begun 1733;
·         Mikveh Israel, Philadelphia, begun 1740;
·         Shaarai Shomayim, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, begun 1747;
·         Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim, Charleston, South Carolina, begun 1749;
·         and Kahal Kadosh Beth Shalom, Richmond, Virginia, begun 1789.
From the 3rd century on, the teaching of Rabbi Samuel in Babylonia, that “the law of the land is the law,” resulted in Jews refraining from trying to change their political situation. The American Revolutionary War was the first time since being exiled from Jerusalem that Jews fought alongside Christian neighbors as equals in the fight for freedom.
Jewish merchants, such as Aaron Lopez of Newport and Isaac Moses of Philadelphia, sailed their ships past British blockades to provide clothing, guns, powder and food to the needy Revolutionary soldiers. Some merchants lost everything.
An estimated 160 Jews fought in the Continental American Army during the Revolutionary War, such as Lieut. Solomon Bush and Francis Salvador of South Carolina, the first Jewish State Legislator, who was killed in a Revolutionary War battle; Mordecai Sheftall of Savannah was Deputy Commissary General for American troops, 1778; Abigail Minis supplied provisions to American soldiers in 1779; and Reuben Etting of Baltimore fought and was appointed U.S. Marshall for Maryland by Jefferson, 1801.
George Washington’s Jewish physician, Dr. Philip Moses Russell, suffered with him at Valley Forge.
President Calvin Coolidge recounted, May 3, 1925: “Haym Solomon, Polish Jew financier of the Revolution. Born in Poland, he was made prisoner by the British forces in New York, and when he escaped set up in business in Philadelphia. He negotiated for Robert Morris all the loans raised in France and Holland, pledged his personal faith and fortune for enormous amounts, and personally advanced large sums to such men as James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, Baron Steuben, General St. Clair, and many other patriot leaders who testified that without his aid they could not have carried on in the cause.”
In 1975, a U.S. postage stamp honored Haym Solomon, with printing on the back: “Financial hero-businessman and broker Haym Solomon was responsible for raising most of the money needed to finance the American Revolution and later saved the new nation from collapse.”
George Washington sent a letters to the Jewish Congregation in Newport, Rhode Island, and in Savannah, Georgia, stating: “May the same wonder-working Deity, who long since delivered the Hebrews from their Egyptian oppressors, planted them in a promised land, whose providential agency has lately been conspicuous in establishing these United States as an independent nation, still continue to water them with the dews of heaven.”
Ashkenazic Jews were few in America until a persecution in Bavaria in the 1830s resulted in many thousands immigrating.
President Martin Van Buren sent a letter to the Muslim Ottoman Turks requesting that they stop the killing of Jews in Syria, “on behalf of an oppressed and persecuted race, among whose kindred are found some of the most worthy and patriotic of American citizens.”
David Yulee, “Father of Florida Railroads,” was the first Jew elected to the U.S Senate in 1845. He was joined in 1853 by Senator Judah P. Benjamin from Louisiana.
Governor David Emanuel of Georgia was the first Jewish Governor of any U.S. state.
In 1818, Solomon Jacobs was Mayor of Richmond, Virginia.
Uriah P. Levy was the first Jewish Commodore in the U.S. Navy, fighting in the War of 1812 and commanding the Mediterranean squadron. He was responsible for ending the practice of flogging in the Navy. A chapel at Annapolis and a WWII destroyer were named after him.
When Jefferson’s Monticello home was decaying, Levy bought it in 1836, repaired it and opened it to the public. He commissioned the statute of Jefferson that is in the U.S. Capitol rotunda.
Samuel Mayer Isaacs, editor of the Jewish Messenger, wrote of the United States, Dec. 28, 1860: “This Republic was the first to recognize our claims to absolute equality, with men of whatever religious denomination. Here we can sit each under his vine and fig tree, with none to make him afraid.”
In 1862, the London Jewish Chronicle reported: “We now have a few words of the Jews of the United States in general. … The Constitution having established perfect religious liberty, Jews were free in America. … They … in a comparatively short time, prospered and throve there in a degree unexampled in Europe.”
At the time of the Civil War, the population of the United States was 31 million, including around 150,000 Jews. An estimated 7,000 Jews fought for the Union and 3,000 fought for the Confederacy, with around 600 Jewish soldiers dying in battle.
Jewish Union Generals were: Leopold Blumenberg; Frederick Knefler; Edward S. Salomon; and Frederick C. Salomon.
Jewish Confederate officers included: Judah P. Benjamin, Secretary of War; Colonel Abraham Charles Myers, Quartermaster General; and Dr. David Camden DeLeon, Surgeon General; Surgeon Dr. Simon Baruch served on General Robert E. Lee’s personal staff.
Major Raphael J. Moses was Commissary Officer of Georgia, and after the war began Georgia’s peach industry.
Whereas the first Catholic U.S. Army chaplain was appointed during the Mexican-American War, the first Jewish chaplain was appointed during the Civil War, Rev. Jacob Frankel of Philadelphia’s Congregation Rodeph Shalom.
On March 1, 1881, Tsar Alexander II of Russia was assassinated and a pogrom began against Jews, leading to over 2 million fleeing to America.
By 1916, the United States population was 100 million, of which 3 million were Jewish.
During World War I, President Woodrow Wilson wrote: “Whereas in countries engaged in war there are 9 million Jews, the majority of whom are destitute of food, shelter, and clothing; driven from their homes without warning … causing starvation, disease and untold suffering … the people of the U.S. have learned with sorrow of this terrible plight. … I proclaim Jan. 27, 1916, a day to make contributions for the aid of the stricken Jewish people to the American Red Cross.”

Christians’ Love of the Warfare State Is Killing Other Christians


Christians’ Love of the Warfare State Is Killing Other Christians

When Will Evangelical Christians Start To See Through This Charade?

Chuck Baldwin
Ever since the George W. Bush administration, evangelical pastors and churches have been America’s loudest cheerleaders for virtually every act of war the U.S. has waged against foreign countries. For pastors such as John Hagee, wars of aggression in the Middle East are predicated upon the notion of protecting Israel--even though military meddling by the United States has only served to make life more dangerous for Israel. But leaving Israel out of the equation, evangelicals are the first to trumpet U.S. wars of aggression. I would even suggest that the favorite hymn of most evangelical churches these days is no longer John Newton’s “Amazing Grace,” but John McCain’s “Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran.”
I would go even further to say that evangelical churches have become the very best friend that the military/industrial complex has ever had. It is congressmen and senators from districts and states heavily-laden with evangelical churches that continue to pump unlimited tax-dollars into the Warfare State. One could even make the argument that in most evangelical churches, Jesus’ adage “Blessed are the peacemakers” has been changed to “Blessed are the warmongers.”
Let’s set the record straight: perpetual war is a tool of elitists and globalists to enslave the U.S. citizenry. While we are killing thousands of people abroad (most of whom are innocents)--all in the name of “liberating” them--we are tightening the tyrannical noose around the necks of the American people. In the name of the “War on Terror,” the most sophisticated surveillance society in the history of mankind has been created right here in the continental United States. With the advent of the Patriot Act and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under G.W. Bush, Washington, D.C., has constructed (and is continuing to construct) a burgeoning police state the likes of which Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-tung, and Adolf Hitler could have only dreamed about. And for the most part, evangelicals are fine with it.
But what is really happening in those countries that these endless wars are supposedly “liberating?” And specifically, what is happening to the thousands and millions of Christians within those countries after having been “liberated” by Uncle Sam? After all, America’s evangelical churches of every denomination spend millions of dollars every year sending missionaries around the globe to evangelize folks. How many missionary slides have we seen? How many passionate, tearful sermons have we heard imploring us to get a burden for missions? One of the most sacred elements of any Christian church is its missions program.
So, on the one hand, evangelicals are weeping, praying, and giving millions of dollars to make Christians out of the peoples of the world and on the other hand, they are leading the charge for America’s efforts to rain death and destruction down upon those same people.
Aside from the utter inconsistency of the above, what are all of these endless wars accomplishing for the Christians who live inside the countries that we are “liberating?” What is all of these Christian-endorsed wars doing to the people of God around the world? The answer will shock most believers.
According to an Infowars.com report, “In areas where we spent hundreds of billions of dollars and where thousands of precious American lives were sacrificed, churches are regularly being bombed, Christians are being brutally beheaded, and laws have been passed to make it illegal for a Muslim to convert to Christianity.  If we were not even able to provide the most basic of liberties and freedoms to the people living in those nations, what in the world did we actually accomplish by ‘liberating’ them?
“Just look at what has happened in Afghanistan.  We have been at war in Afghanistan for more than a dozen years, and yet things are so bad for Christians in that country at this point that there is not a single church left . . .”
The report goes on to say, “We find a similar story in Iraq. It is estimated that before the invasion, there were up to 2 million Christians living in Iraq. Now that number is down to less than 450,000, and it is falling fast.
“In fact, things are so dire for Iraq’s Christian community that some Iraqi Christian leaders are warning that Christians may soon become ‘extinct’ in that nation…”
The report continues, “In Syria, the Obama administration is shamelessly allying with radical al-Qaeda jihadists in a desperate attempt to overthrow the Assad regime.
“As these jihadists torture, behead and even crucify Christian believers, the mainstream media in the United States is virtually silent about it.
“Why is the media being so quiet?
“Well, because exposing what is going on would make the Obama administration look bad.
Those carrying out this persecution of Christians in Syria are being directly funded and aided by the governments of the United States and Saudi Arabia.”
See the report at:
The same could be said for Christians in the country of Libya.
But remember that these wars of aggression began in earnest under the “Christian” George W. Bush administration and have been ongoing throughout the Barack Obama administration. In fact, Obama’s continuation of the Bush preemptive war policy is the one thing about the Obama administration that most evangelical Christians actually support.
And please understand that what has happened to Christians in Middle Eastern countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria has happened in every other country that U.S. government has chosen to pressure--either by military intervention or economic sanction--including Nigeria and The Sudan.
A report in National Review Online states, “Prominent indicators confirm that the U.S. is the chief facilitator of the persecution of Christians around the world today.
“According to the recently released 2014 World Watch List, which ranks the 50 nations where Christians are most persecuted, Syria is the third worst nation in the world in which to be Christian, Iraq is fourth, Afghanistan fifth, and Libya 13th. All four countries receive the strongest designation, ‘extreme persecution’ (other designations are ‘severe,’ ‘moderate,’ and ‘sparse’ persecution). 
“Aside from being so closely and harshly ranked, these four nations have something else in common: heavy U.S. involvement. Three--Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya--were ‘liberated’ thanks to U.S. forces, while in the fourth, Syria, the U.S. is actively sponsoring ‘freedom fighters’ against the regime, many of whom would be better labeled ‘terrorists.’”
The author of this report, Raymond Ibrahim, concludes by saying, “I am often asked, ‘How can we help persecuted Christians?’ At this point, one must respond: ‘How about starting with getting the U.S. government to stop being the chief facilitator of Christian persecution?’ Altruism aside, it would be in the interests of all freedom-loving people--and especially their descendants.”
See the report at:
I wonder what the vast majority of evangelical Christians would think if they realized that their support for all of these preemptive wars around the world--especially in the Middle East--are actually the major cause of much of the persecutions against their fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. I shudder to think what America’s Christians will say to their fellow-believers in Heaven who were savagely martyred due to the wars of aggression that they, America’s Christians, so enthusiastically supported.
America’s Warfare State, complete with the military/industrial complex, is facilitating the most egregious persecution of Christians since the days of Stalin, Hitler, and Chairman Mao and is turning the land of the free into a giant police state. When will the American people start to see through this charade? When will America’s pastors and Christians start to see through this charade?
If America’s evangelical pastors and churches would end their constant support for all of these foreign wars, if they would recognize the danger--globally and domestically--that the military/industrial complex poses, and if they would start putting the interests of this country above their parochial preoccupations with favored foreign states and personal eschatological opinions and interpretations, the Warfare State would collapse.
The Church has always been the compass of the country; and right now, the compass is broken, and the ship of state is way off course.

Presbyterian Church and Palestinian Liberal Christians Rewriting the Bible to Remove References to Israel


Presbyterian Church and Palestinian Liberal Christians Rewriting the Bible to Remove References to Israel

By Julio Severo
Sabeel (Palestinian Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center) has partnered with the Presbyterian Church (USA) to produce a new Bible version that changes God’s Word.
U.S. Presbyterian delegations celebrating 25 years of the Palestinian Liberation Theology at Sabeel
The new version has no mention of Israel as Jewish and no mention of Jesus as a Jew. In fact, Jesus (Yeshua) is changed from being Jewish to being a Palestinian Arab, according to Geri Ungurean in NowTheEndBegins.
Sabeel (Arabic ‘the way’ and also ‘a channel’ or ‘spring’) is a Christian liberation theology organization based in Jerusalem. It was founded by Palestinian Anglican priest Rev. Naim Ateek, the former Canon of St. George’s Cathedral in Jerusalem.
According to Ungurean, Dr. Ateek “wants to rewrite the Bible in the same manner that Catholic, Anglican and Reformed theologies have claimed that the Christian Church is ‘The New Israel,’ also called ‘The Israel of God.’ Rewriting history and inventing theology is a popular vocation. Revisionist historians take liberties with facts until they cease to have meaning. Prime examples are the Holocaust denial polemics or current trends to rewrite American history texts.”
Ungurean says, “An official partner of the Presbyterian Church USA, Sabeel has Friends of Sabeel chapters in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Ireland, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Australia.”
Sabeel is involved with the “Christ at the CheckPoint” conference, which seeks to undermine the traditional evangelical support for Israel.
Why would the Presbyterian Church in the United States (PCUSA), which is the largest Presbyterian denomination in the U.S., get involved with Sabeel and its Liberation Theology?
Liberation Theology is the most widespread theological liberalism in our days. And PCUSA is an evidence of its evils. Having firstly embraced the Social Gospel in the late 19th century, Presbyterians later formed PCUSA, which is now a full-blown liberal power-house, supporting homosexual “marriage,” abortion and anti-Israel stances.
Liberation Theology may be the Social Gospel’s most important offshoot.
A Presbyterian missionary from the Social Gospel movement came to Brazil in 1952 and spent one decade teaching theology in the most prominent Presbyterian theological institution in Brazil. His name was Rev. Richard Shaull, and he was involved in several Marxist and communist causes in Brazil. The birth of the Theology of Integral Mission (TIM) in Brazil is traced and credited to him.
Even though TIM is labeled as the Protestant version of Liberation Theology, TIM was born before Liberation Theology. For more information, download my free e-book here: http://bit.ly/15AJmMC
TIM is destroying the Evangelical Church in Brazil. And Liberation Theology is destroying the Catholic Church in Brazil.
Probably, TIM contributed for the birth of Liberation Theology in the 1960s. So you see how powerful the Social Gospel was!
PCUSA is representative of the future of churches under the Liberation Theology and TIM spell: supporters of abortion, gay “marriage” and anti-Israel.
At the end, what does difference make if they change the Bible or not? They do not care about what God commands and teaches about Israel, the Church, the Kingdom of God, the value of unborn human life, the natural marriage and family.

Beware of the Revolution Man: Socialist Billionaire George Soros Spent $33 Million to Turn Ferguson Protest into National Revolution


Beware of the Revolution Man: Socialist Billionaire George Soros Spent $33 Million to Turn Ferguson Protest into National Revolution

By Julio Severo
Ferguson protests were much more than about injustice, race or a black teen killed by police.
Does it make some sense a white teen killed by a black cop receiving no significant media attention while a black teen killed by a white cop receives massive media attention?
When a suspicious case does not make sense, follow the money.
According to the Washington Times, socialist billionaire George Soros donated $33million to left-wing organizations that helped turn events in Ferguson from a local protest into a national and international firestorm.
A high number of activists travelled from many cities across the United States to pour into Ferguson to turn a local protest into a national revolution.
Buses of activists from groups including the Drug Policy Alliance, Make the Road New York, and the Center for Community Change in Washington — all funded in part by Soros — went to Ferguson beginning in August and went on to organize gatherings and protests there until late December, according to the Washington Times.
One of the organizations that Soros funds, and which fueled the demonstrations in Ferguson, is the Gamaliel Foundation, a network of grass-roots, interreligious groups. President Barack Obama started his community-organizing career at a Gamaliel affiliate in Chicago.
The Gamaliel affiliate in St. Louis — Metropolitan Congregations United — organized the “Weekend of Resistance” in October, in which clergy members from around the nation were called to come to Ferguson to protest.
Representatives of Sojourners, a national socialist evangelical organization headed by Jim Wallis, attended the weekend. The group received $150,000 from Soros in 2011.
Clergy representatives from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference (SDPC), where the Rev. Jeremiah Wright is a trustee, also participated in the protests. Wright was Obama’s long-time pastor in Chicago. SDPC received $250,000 from Soros in 2011.
How is Soros able to grant massive funds to socialist groups?
The billionaire’s fortune was made from speculating on financial markets, most notably making more than $1billion in the 1990s helping cripple the British financial system.
Soros is a well-known supporter of progressive-liberal causes and is a political donor to Obama’s campaigns. He committed $1 million to Obama in 2012.
He has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American and international politics and policy.
How has he influenced in the international scenario?
Has Soros also used the “Ferguson coup” in other places? Whenever you see a revolution, follow the money, and do not be scared or surprised if Soros is involved behind the scenes.
If you think that the $33 million Soros spent to inflame the Ferguson protest is much, consider the “mysterious” revolution in Ukraine. “Soros has provided more than $100 million to support Ukrainian groups,” according to WorldNetDaily, which also said that “Soros heavily invested in Ukraine crisis.”
Both in the Ferguson crisis and the Ukrainian crisis, the U.S. government under Obama has sided with Soros and his plots.
Christians also have been targeted by Soros’ plots. In 2012, the Center for Constitutional Rights, a Soros-funded Marxist group, filed a lawsuit against Rev. Scott Lively for “crime against humanity.” His crime? He expressed the traditional Christian view on the homosexual perversions in the Ugandan Parliament.
If Soros is able to turn a protest into a national revolution, what does it hinder one of his groups from turning a Christian minister into a “criminal against humanity”? His specialty is to inflame.
Sadly, Soros has more plans against Christians. According to the ChristianPost, he has been funding movements to weaken the tradition evangelical support for Israel.
Soros is a Jew. How can a Jew undermine pro-Israel evangelical churches?
In fact, how can a capitalist billionaire Jew fund so many socialist revolutions, protests and crisis around the world, from Ferguson to Ukraine?
If there are betrayers among Christians (and most of them are socialist), why would not there be equally socialist, betraying Jews?
Next time you see a suspicious protest turning into a socialist revolution, follow the money. In the end of the dark rainbow, there is a greedy socialist capitalist and his plots.

Malarkey Did Not Go to Heaven: The Foolishness of Believing that All is False or True


Malarkey Did Not Go to Heaven: The Foolishness of Believing that All is False or True

NYT Best-Selling Author Lied About Going to Heaven

By Julio Severo
If you believe that a bad name can bring a curse, consider Alex Malarkey, who says now he did not die and go to heaven.
He is co-author of Tyndale House Publishers’ “The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven,” published in 2010. Now he says that his book is deceptive and he is blaming Christian retailers for selling it. Because he is recanting the story of his visit to heaven, mega news outlets — from Time magazine to DailyMail — are covering his case.
This seems their golden chance to say, “Hey, there is no Heaven!”
I do not know the reason for Malarkey to go “malarkey,” an English word that means “Exaggerated or foolish talk, usually intended to deceive.” But the same world that loves exaggerated lies is attacking Malarkey’s malarkey.
There is today a trend of homosexual malarkeys, but the same mega-media that have condemned “The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven” just love to believe that a man is a woman and vice-versa. They have intensely worked to convince us that the bogus woman who was born a man is a woman. And they have worked to change minds and laws in favor of this lie.
Homosexual malarkeys are the favorite lies today.
About “The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven,” just because you found a false testimony it does not follow that all testimonies about Heaven are false. Different is the homosexual case. You know that all men that say that they are female are liars because their DNA is male. Nothing can change it. Through DNA, science proves that a man is a man and a woman is a woman. No one can lie against his own DNA.
The author of “The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven” lied to God, but his lie does not disqualify other testimonies about heaven.
Two days ago I read a Facebook comment by an Assemblies of God Brazilian-American leader using “The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven” to condemn all similar spiritual experiences. At the same time, he has used his Facebook to promote and support comments and views by a Presbyterian minister who espouses socialism and Freemasonry. In fact, this minister is a Freemason himself.
In the past (70 years ago?) it would be perfectly normal to see a liberal Masonic Presbyterian minister using a false testimony to condemn all spiritual testimonies — and, by the way, to condemn also Assemblies of God ministers.
Times have changed. Now Assemblies of God ministers play the old role of the Masonic Presbyterian minister.
It is very unfortunate that Malarkey went malarkey, but God’s Word has never changed.
“Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.” (1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 ESV)
The big socialist media that love and spread all homosexual malarkeys is using Malarkey’s malarkey to disqualify all Christian testimonies about the Heaven.
Christians should not be an accessory to their malarkeys.
We should reject malarkeys in our midst without rejecting true testimonies. And we should reject and denounce all homosexual malarkeys promoted by the big socialist media.
As to Alex Malarkey, he should change his surname — Truthtelling, for the sake of a good Christian testimony.
The world forgives all homosexual lies, but it never forgives a “Christian” lie.
I know that all testimonies — loved and promoted by the big socialist media — that a man is a woman are bogus.
Yet, I have no presumptuous right to say that all testimonies about Heaven are false or true. The big socialist media would want you to believe that all of them are bogus.
If the media were correct, Apostle Paul, who went to Heaven, would have been a liar. The problem is: the media love lies.
They accept the lying testimonies from the darkness and reject the testimonies from Christians. For them, there are no malarkeys about homosexuality. For them, some malarkeys among Christians are an evidence that all Christian testimonies are bogus.
All homosexual malarkeys receive heavenly treatment from the big socialist media. Regardless their true or false nature, Christian testimonies are labeled malarkey and receive hellish treatment.
The big socialist media are throwing a big party against Christian testimonies and Heaven because of Malarkey while they keep their usual celebrations of homosexual malarkeys.

Gay Magazine Praises Jeb Bush


Gay Magazine Praises Jeb Bush

By Julio Severo
Jeb Bush, the hope for American conservatives in the next U.S. presidential elections, is flirting with the gay agenda.
Jeb Bush
In an illuminating article entitled “Why the Gay Agenda Is Praising Jeb Bush,” Peter LaBarbera says, “It is becoming apparent that Jeb Bush is the favorite Republican Party presidential contender of the Washington Blade-D.C.’s ‘gay news source’ — due to his politically-correct evolution on homosexuality and same-sex ‘marriage.’ The Blade and other liberal media report favorably every time the former Florida governor moves away from the conservative, pro-family, Republican platform defending marriage as between man and woman.”
These do not have been good times for conservatives. Last year, LaBarbera was detained by the “conservative” government of Canada. More recently, conservative George W. Bush has described socialist Bill Clinton as a “brother from another mother.” Now, his biological brother has been praised by a homosexual magazine.
What is happening to political conservative figures these days? Homosexual publications are expected to praise socialist figures, not “conservative” ones. Yet, in 2013, Pope Francis was named “Person of the Year” by world’s biggest gay magazine. Is the conservative world turning pro-sodomy?
Why would a homosexual magazine praise Jeb Bush? According to LaBarbera, gay activists loved the “softer tone” of his reaction when they “overthrew of Florida’s pro-natural-marriage amendment, which had passed with 62 percent of the vote in 2008.” Here is Jeb’s speech:
 “We live in a democracy, and regardless of our disagreements, we have to respect the rule of law… I hope that we can show respect for the good people on all sides of the gay and lesbian marriage issue—including couples making lifetime commitments to each other who are seeking greater legal protections and those of us who believe marriage is a sacrament and want to safeguard religious liberty.”
LaBarbera says a few hundred thousand Republican voters cast ballots to preserve the common-sense definition marriage, and Bush says its striking down is a “rule of law.”
Rule of homosexual law? Traditionally, socialists — especially from the Democratic Party — have supported such a “rule.” Now are even Republican politicians chosen by conservatives flirting with the gay agenda?
LaBarbera finished by saying,
“It appears Jeb Bush is not up to the task, but he is not alone among a bevy of GOP governors, politicians and libertarian-minded pundits who have chosen pandering over principle on this critical issue that speaks to the character of a nation—a nation that claims to be ‘under God’ while defying His moral law and created natural order.”
These incompatibilities and inconsistencies scare away conservative Christians from Republican demagogues and betrayers.
Good conservatives have left the GOP, because the GOP has left them and conservative values.
Matt Barber, owner of the magnificent BarbWire, has left the GOP.
Conservative champion Scott Lively run for governor of Massachusetts as an independent candidate in the last election. By the way, the first U.S. state to legalize homosexual “marriage” was Massachusetts under Republican Governor Mitt Romney, elected by conservatives, fully betrayed by their political choice.
Fortunately, Romney the Betrayer lost the last presidential election.
How many betrayals will be enough for conservative Christians to wake from the deception by politicians who cheat them?
We need an army of Barbers and Livelys — men with solid and uncompromising conservative convictions.

Siding with the “religion of peace”: Obama, Bush, Brzezinski…


Siding with the “religion of peace”: Obama, Bush, Brzezinski…

Barack Obama, in his biography “The Audacity of Hope,” says about Muslims, “I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
So if the Western world begins to reject the U.S. presidential propaganda portraying Islam as a “religion of peace” and begins to treat this religion as a cowardly ideology slaughtering innocents, Obama commits himself to side with the oppressors.
Remember: by far Islam is the ideology most martyrizing Christians around the world each year.
It would be so good if the U.S. had a president who said, “I will stand with Christians now that the U.S. and Western fad is to flatter Islam.”
Of course, if some other nation dares to side with Christians and goes against the Islamic ideology, it will face Obama and U.S. sanctions.
There is no hope in the two major U.S. parties. The U.S. president who began the deceptive propaganda of Islam a “religion of peace” was not Obama. It was Bush. The U.S. policy, in the two parties, shamelessly licks Islamic boots.
So did everything begin with Bush? No. Everything began decades ago, more strongly during the Jimmy Carter administration, who was a liberal precursor of Obama. For Brazil, Carter is remembered as the man who protected Leonel Brizola and other communists from the military. It was also under Carter that the U.S. government began to collect papers against the military rule in Brazil. Some of these papers were delivered to the Brazilian administration of socialist Dilma Rousseff months ago to help the infamous ‘Truth’ National Committee.
Another significant fact is that Carter had a strategic adviser who helped the U.S. in geopolitical and military issues. His name is Zbigniew Brzezinski. His strategy was to use Islamic terrorism against the Soviet Union.
As far as the moral aspect is concerned, Islamic terrorism is wicked and so was the Soviet Union. Both deserved to be annihilated. Brzezinski’s strategy was to use one to annihilate the other.

So Brzezinski helped in the birth and funding of al-Qaida, which was created to be a terror for the Soviet Union, but it got completely out of control and eventually became a terror to the whole world. Brzezinski’s old ally, Osama bin Laden, later used all his experience as a former CIA agent to torment the world with his al-Qaida. It is a perfect example of schemes backfiring. Not much different of ISIS, which, according to WND, also was born with U.S. assistance.
Deservedly, the Soviet Union fell, but Brzezinski’s strategic policies (anti-Russia, U.S.-Islamic alliance) keep guiding the U.S.
In his 1997 book “The Grand Chessboard,” Brzezinski contends that the U.S. have a worldwide hegemony in the main domains. He says,
“America stands supreme in the four decisive domains of global power: militarily… economically… technologically… and culturally.”
The only area, according to Brzezinski, that is not under total U.S. control is the Eurasian region, an area of interest for the U.S. (which has no border there), for Turkey (which occupies a small part of it) and for Russia (which occupies a major part of that region).
About Russia’s Islamic neighbors, Brzezinski foresees “something worse” than “the painful precedents of Chechnya” may happen. “The Grand Chessboard” says, “For the Russians, the specter of a potential conflict with the Islamic states along Russia's entire southern flank (which, adding in Turkey, Iran, and Pakistan, account for more than 300 million people) has to be a source of serious concern.” Of course, as evidenced by Brzezinski’s anti-Russian pro-Islam history, if Islam is a big threat to Russia, nothing more strategic than the U.S. helping in the fulfillment of Brzezinski’s “foresight” by expanding the radical Islamic influence in those regions.
His book talks sparingly about worries over communist threat, but it address abundantly Russia as an enemy to be conquered. Brzezinski’s main worry is to extend U.S. hegemony to Eurasia.
Partially, because of those hegemonic ambitions the U.S. keeps its alliance and flattery to Islam.
Guided by nationalism and ignoring ideological differences, the two major parties follow their tradition of supporting Islam. So the U.S. helped to create al-Qaida. The Soviet Union ended, but both parties have had a hard time to quit old habits.
With them, the U.S. has been faithful to its Islamic allies, especially Saudi Arabia, which is the main funder of the international Islamic terrorism. Not to mention Turkey, which has become a major threat by striving after an Islamic expansion in Latin America. Turkey is the only Muslim nation in the NATO, the U.S. military alliance.
For the sake of the anti-Russian pro-Islam strategy, all is allowed, including appointing Muslims to high-rank positions. Two years ago, Obama appointed a Muslim as CIA director. Even in the Department of Homeland Security, radical Muslims hold significant posts.
By following this strategy, the U.S.’s supreme message today is, “Islam is a religion of peace.” This deception has been embraced around the world, because the nation promoting this propaganda has, according to Brzezinski, the cultural and technological hegemony and supremacy.
The Soviet Union ended, but Brzezinski’s anti-Russia pro-Islam strategy remains. He and his followers will not be satisfied while the U.S. does not extend its supremacy to Eurasia, whatever it takes. And the cost of that hegemonic ambition will come through Islam.
Mohammed’s ‘pacifists’ can kill millions of innocents and the only message you are going to hear from the U.S. mass media is: Islam is a “religion of peace.”
Who is paying the cost of this deception? Abundant reports published by American specialists point that U.S. military interventions have been benefitting Islamic persecution of Christians. About 150 millions Christians are persecuted by Islam.
Approximately 100,000 Christians are martyrized each years. The big martyrizer is Islam. Even so, just because the U.S. has anti-Russia ambitions and wants to extend its hegemony to Eurasia, you have to swallow down the deceptive propaganda that Islam is a “religion of peace.”
Deception helps to kill, especially when it comes from a nation founded by persecuted evangelicals to help persecuted Christians. To help Islam in the worldwide persecution of Christians is a total departure from the original mission that the evangelical Founders had given to America.
