Apparently, according to a letter just received from @govkristinoem, I am part of a radical left wing cabal, am despicable, a mob, & the stock I own is ending this country & I won’t stop till the Consitituition lies in tatters.

Modern history represents how the #Secularist & #Capitalist #Europe was established while Islam & #IslamicCivilization was grounded to a halt .
After centuries of painful experiences Europe finally realized that it would establish itself on the stage of history unless it shattered the world-guiding global siege of Islamic civilization .

Religious persecution of Hindus in the western coast was one of the main reasons for the Vasai Campaign. Fanatical zeal of Portuguese rulers is well known.

3. it was visible to the human eye above the earth for several hours. The flashes it emitted outshone the rays of the sun, which would have outshone and obscured it themselves if it had not presented the watchers with a more powerful illumination than the sun.

1/ This was a dream & vision that God gave me last year on March 24th, 2020. Then, I only shared it w/ 2 other ppl, that I recall.

I saw a man in white robe with a sword in his hand fighting against an enemy. Two young women were standing beside him, one on each side. ...
2/ Fire and smoke shot toward them, and a head appeared from the midst of the smoke. The head was that of a dragon. The head of the dragon had two horns on his head like an antelope. The dragon told the man that he cannot defeat him or protect the two women. The man replied ...
3/ to the dragon, telling him that he is really weak and that he only gets his power by speaking lies. The dragon became enraged and replied, "I will show you my power and strength." The two women told the man that they will help him. The man thanked the women, and he gave ...

The non-sugarcoated view of #Christianity on #Islam.

Pastor Kachelmeier about why the old Lutherans considered Islam a Christian (!) heresy (and not its own religion). Listen to the ignorance of these Trinitarian textbook polytheists and thank Allah for Tawhid.
Other textbook pagans and idolaters like Orthodox Christians share similar views and claim Islam is an agnostic (!) heresy. The Islam-hating Syrian monk, priest, and apologist, John of Damascus (يوحنا الدمشقي) who died in 749 CE hated Islam and Muslims with passion.
The vile Mushrik John died in 749 CE and it is said the Umayyad caliph of his time ordered his right hand be cut off and hung in public view.

The First Five Centuries of the Papacy:

Are there a few Bishops, specifically Popes, that asserted Papal Supremacy or things that can be inferred as such? Of course. However, what we see is their claims were consistently, and often definitively, rejected.
2nd Century: Saint Pope Victor I excommunicated churches in Asia Minor over the date of Easter.

Eusebius recounts this was rejected by all and later the issue was decided in Nicea I, showing that the Church recognized the council was the final arbiter in these matters.
3rd Century: Saint Pope Stephen I excommunicated Saints Cyprian and Firmilian over their doctrine on Baptism.

North African council rejects Stephen, Saint Dionysus of Alexandria rejects Stephen, and Firmilian claims the “eastern churches” rejected Stephen.

I am considering making a Facebook group for #ProLife for the #Whole Life (#ConsistentLifeEthic) Christian leftists of various kinds, from #socdems, to #socialists, to #distributists, and
others, to combat these following false stigmas about #Christianity(including #Catholicism) and #leftism:

1. That #Christians(including #Catholics) can’t be #leftists/#socialists/etc.
2. That leftists can’t be #religious
3. That leftists can’t be #ProLife

Do you think this
is a good idea? I want to find more people who have a similar mentality of me. Or maybe I could expand it to just do prolife religious leftists in general, considering some other pro-life whole-life religious leftists may also face scrutiny by both American leftist and

This is the steady stream of propaganda that's going to be hitting us daily, selling "deprogramming" and "re-education" as normal and reasonable, attempting to convince us that the Biden-Harris side is the good-guy side, admittedly 'backed by corporate billionaires'.
Understand that this same talking head is telling you the billionaire class, the media, and the Biden-Harris campaign (the DNC) are the good truth tellers while we're living an alternate reality, manipulated by the most sophisticated technology and propaganda... as opposed to???
It's disingenuous, but it will be effective for much of their target audience. He strains to seem reasonable, even while framing the situation as: You're either with us (Biden-Harris, DNC, anti-Trump), or you're psychotic, basically a Nazi, clinically paranoid, etc.

#evangelicals I am sick and tired of yall making excuses for your shitty behavior and the shitty behavior of your religious and political leaders!!
I am fucking exhausted from trying to give you the benefit of the doubt when you have NOT ONCE earned it.
(this will be a thread)
The whole point of #evangelicalism is and always has been to make everyone like you. To eradicate anything or anyone that does not look or pray or believe or sound like you. Because that is uncomfortable to you, and you do not know how to be uncomfortable.
From the “jesus movement” crusades to the “pro-life” movement to the storming of our nation’s Capitol yesterday, it is nothing short of genocidal. Enough is enough. You are going to be the death of all of us.

1/7) A powerful plea to the Emperor asking for religious tolerance ..coming not from a Christian, but from a Pagan - the senator Symmachus, petitioning the Emperor in 384 AD to preserve non-Christian monuments:

"Every man has his own customs and religious practices... Image
2/7) "Just as every man receives at birth his own soul, so every nation receives its genius, its guardian spirit, guiding its destiny. The favour we have been bestowed proves to us the existence of gods; nothing illuminates the will of the gods better than our own prosperity".. Image
3/7) "We must preserve centuries of faith by following our fathers, who prospered by following their own fathers, and so on. Let us imagine Rome herself stands before us now, pleading of us: "Respect my age! Respect the religious rites that carried me through so many years"... Image

On the #Zoroastrian origins of a weekly #Catholic Ritual

پندار نیک، گفتار نیک، کردار نیک

Most people who are Catholic, or were raised in the Roman Catholic rite, will be familiar with the triple crossing ritual during the Mass.

#Iranian #زرتشت #CatholicTwitter ImageImage
In the moment before the Gospel reading, the priest says “a reading from the Gospel according to (X)”, and the congregation replies “glory to you, o Lord”, before performing this gesture.

Using their thumb, they cross their forehead, then their lips, then their heart.
Few if any Catholic knows that this gesture is a modern representation of an ancient philosophy inherited from #Zoroastrianism:

- Blessing the forehead signifies “good thoughts”
- Blessing the lips signifies “good words”
- Blessing the heart signifies “good deeds”

Jesus was a Socialist

Jesus was a socialist, this is not open for debate.
See the epic giveaway? That’s the giveaway.
Be it time; be it deed; be it goods; be it creed.
There’s no exception.
Now if Jesus veering left, should cause you some upset,
Consult your nearest Bible, exorcise the tribal.
Love gives time; love does deeds; love is good; love’s a creed.
Love lies in action.
Now my lip service argues that your words just won’t do.
It’s actions that speak loudest; they exact a price.
Love is hard; love demands. Love’s not gripped, in our hands;
Misers hold only things.

#Pope Honorius I (625-638) was condemned and excommunicated for heresy by the sixth general council in 680. Stephen VI (896-89) had the body of his predecessor Pope Formosus exhumed and put on trial (this is the famous cadaver synod) for his unbecoming conduct during his tenure.
Stephen had Formosa's papal vestments removed and two fingers from his right hand cut off. Formosa's' body was thrown into the Tiber. After the synod, public opinion turned against Stephen. He was deposed in an uprising and strangled to death.
Then there was John-12 (955-964) who died a mysterious death, after having been accused of adultery & turning his pontification into a whore house. However, he had more than his match in Benedict-9 to the only man 2 have served as Pope for 3 discontinuous periods, beginning 1032.

In the 13th century, Pope Gregory IX (#Pope from 1227-1241), believed that cats had Satan himself within them . Following a Papal Bull (essentially laying down #Church doctrine), virtually everyone in Western Europe began to exterminate cats. #Christmas #Christianity
Thousands were accused of #witches or devil worshipers, and either tortured, killed or both. The cat genocide petered out following Gregory death, but the gory tradition remained alive. #Christmas #Christianity
During another witch hunting frenzy in the late 1400s, cats were killed en masse again, as a part of Church’s war against #Satan. Killing of cats on such a massive scale, resulted in a huge increase in rat population in #Europe. #Christmas #Christianity

So 🇧🇦 MFA Bisera Turkovic compared #Serbs with Hitler & suggested abolishing the entity of the Republic of Srpska. This was so disgraceful since the Serbs suffered most from Nazis and Croat Usthasas during WWII in their slaughter camps and pits.
But who is Bisera indeed?⏬
During the war in #Bosnia Turkovic was an 🇧🇦ambassador to #Croatia and one of the main persons for the transport of mujahideen warriors over #Zagreb #Split to #Bosnia. This was also underlined in 2005 by the #US 🇺🇸 congressman T. Franks from #Arizona. ⏬
Mrs. Turkovic has strong roots in foreign relations especially in the #USA 🇺🇸since her grandfather Mehmed Resic was one of the founders of the branch of Dzemijetul Hajrije, 1st Bosnian Muslim society in the USA in #Wilpen #Pennsylvania where he worked as a miner. ⏬
