When the segregationist George Wallace faced the moral challenge of Dr Martin Luther King Jr and the civil rights movement in 1960s Alabama, he also called upon religious leaders to vouch for him. “By no stretch of the imagination is George C Wallace a racist,” Dr Henry L Lyon, the pastor of Montgomery’s Highland Avenue Baptist church, testified. “He has shown fairness to all people, regardless of race or color,” the Rev RL Lawrence, a Methodist minister, concurred. They were vouching for the same Wallace who had infamously declared in his inaugural

She was tall. She was commanding. She was intelligent. He was the only woman to ride her own chariot. She was a teacher. A philosopher. She was kind and elegant. Everyone knew her. Her beauty was legendary, and equaled only, it was said, by her intelligence. Tall and confident, commanding her chariot with ease, clothed in a long robe and the signature scarf of the teaching class, she must have cut a striking figure in the thriving streets of that most cosmopolitan of cities. On a March day in 415, she entered a public square near the Caesarean Church

Women would be forced into back-alley abortions, Blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors and make raids, and schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution. Writers and artists would be censored at the whim of government. This was the 1980’s. This was what Robert Bork wanted. He wanted a seat on the Supreme Court. Joe Biden was having none of it. They believed that Biden would be no match for Bork. That Bork would wipe the floor with Biden. Biden had been in the senate for less than 20 years and

I thought I would remind everyone of the speech Biden gave quoting the German Jesuit Alfred Delp. Delp was part of the resistance against Hitler, and was executed by the Nazis:
“At first, we are shaken to our depths, and then we’re ready for a season of hope. As a nation, we’ve certainly been shaken to our depths this year. Now it’s time to wake, to get moving, a time for hope. We’ve gotten through tough times before in this nation. We’ll get through these difficult times as well. We’ll do it by coming together, by working with one another.”

There will

There is a reason MAGA Republicans state that the DOJ is corrupt. It’s purely because they are corrupt and support corruption and don’t want accountability for corruption.

They try to hide themselves behind religion. This is their lie too. Evil people will always use religion. They try to come across as moral crusaders, whilst being the most immoral and amoral of all people. Hitler did it. He used Christianity and supposed Christians turned and looked in the other direction whilst people were slaughtered and carried on reading their cherry-picked Bible

When someone treats you as an object they are willing to harm for their own benefit, abuse has occurred, and that person has become an abuser. Some of the worst forms of abuse are psychological. The victim may never be physically touched but nevertheless is traumatized by the experience of being emotionally manipulated and held captive by lies, threats, and neglect. Abuse always begins with language. This language is evil’s greatest secret. Unknown to most, even its users, this language provides evil with its primary desire: power. It’s a power

Singing songs, reciting slokas and verses . . . they appear through a fog of incense.
One is all.
All is one.
All is love.
Love, love, love.
Practice compassion.
Meditate upon loving-kindness.
Serve, serve, serve.
Practice meditation. Practice mindfulness. The four noble truths. The eightfold path.
Buddha says this and that. The Gita says this and that.
Aum. Sat. Chit. Ananda.
Do this. Do not do that.
Be this way. Not this way.
Give. Do not take.
Practice this. And that. And that.
Right speech. Right action. Right this. Right that.

You know, each birthday is a time to reflect. I was thinking about the lack of maturity we have in the world. Particularly from men. Men seem to have this inability of self-reflection. To look at themselves with a very critical eye. The biggest sign of immaturity is blaming the whole world for your life. Those who followed me long enough know that I did not have an easy childhood. Even as a child and teenager I had the ability of looking at the adults around me and saying to myself, “ These people aren’t right. They are off. I will never become these

Before the Civil Rights movement, white “Christians” were able to say what they liked to whip up voters. All they had to do was mention the N word to get voters all fired up. Whilst these words were still used in private, they declined publicly by government officials. They just had to assure they had other words to get those same voters foaming at the mouth. Reagan would use phrases like “welfare queen” and “bucks” to vilify poor Blacks. Illegals and thugs do the same. Communist” and “socialist” have been racially coded since the “red scares” of the

If you were to ask the majority of “Christians” in America,
“Who was John Milton?”
I expect you’d get a shrug of the shoulders.
When you see comments, CONTINUOUSLY, from these people. You know their idea of Christianity is based on John Milton’s “Paradise Lost.”
They refer to demons, Satan, Hell, the snake as the Devil etc etc, that has no biblical relevance. It’s all based on this fictional book written in 1667. It’s no surprise that church ministers used this book to scare people of Hell and demons and the Devil. Not many people in the 1600’s

Lots of criticism of Jack Smith and Merrick Garland today. I for one have been someone stating these things take time. There is a process.
However…I have lost faith in both of them. I have lost faith in the entire judicial system. The wealthy and powerful and now treated like royalty in the 1500’s. Where law only applied to the “common people.” We knew this all along, but yet again we put faith in those we think will bring fairness and justice. It never happens. Then again, it is America. With a history of this. Ask any Black person in America

Now the world is complex. I understand how that complexity can be very confusing to MAGA. Sometimes they need help.
They are emotional. They don’t know details. They just react without knowing facts.
Republicans like Moaning Traitor Greene is the epitome of this.
They like to talk and scream about Ukraine Aid and will actually stop border control (an issue they don’t want to deal with) complaining about Ukraine Aid. They literally tell the American people that we are just giving Ukraine billions of dollars. Yes they do receive some. The word Aid is

Who is John Nelson Darby? He is a man that changed American Christianity. Based on his own views of the Bible. He was called a heretic. Pushing his own agenda and manipulating the Bible.
However, he found success amongst American “Christians.” He created “rapture theology.” Image He was a dispensationalist. Using literal interpretation and a futurism view interprets “portions” of the Book of Revelation, the Book of Ezekiel, and the Book of Daniel as future events in a literal, physical, apocalyptic, and global context. For 18 centuries there was no such

Biden is well on his way to becoming the greatest jobs-producing president in all of US history. Not just the last few years. But in American history. Republicans blame Biden for rising prices even though they know this is global, not American. It’s easy to blame Biden if the people you are preaching to only believe America is the world. That there is no world outside of America. Unfortunately America wanted

Do you feel more anxiety nowadays? Do you sometimes feel life has lost all meaning? All purpose? That’s it’s just a daily grind towards death? Work. Pay bills then die?
The first thing you have to realise is that all of these feelings are on purpose. They are not organic. The world you live in has assured these feelings.
This is the reason why everything has become out of reach. Why everything is such a struggle. It is why there has been an increase in mental health issues. It has been done to you. On purpose. You have been priced out of the housing

To my dear Twitter friends. For almost 9 years I have been the Resistance to Trump, MAGA and fascist Republicans. As well as many threads on Christofascism and the heretical New Apostolic Reformation.
However. As someone that is empathetic, this has taken a toll on my mental health. Not in a terrible way, but certainly in a burnt out way. I think there is enough negativity out there and I feel the only way forward is positivity. There are many accounts out there that will still tweet constantly about Trump and MAGA. I’m pretty sure I will still from

For years now, evangelicals, MAGA, dominionists etc etc, have supported Donald Trump. To justify Trump’s wickedness, evil, immorality; they have used biblical figures to justify their support. Such as King David. They say God uses “flawed” people. This is their justification. The thing is, is that it’s utter BS. They choose a violent rapist and a murderer in the Bible to justify Trump. That God is using Trump. The argument generally always stops there. They have literally sold their souls to the Devil to support Trump. The thing is is that they use the

I write a lot a about Christianity because I believe it is the most exploited for power. It is also the most mis-read. You’d think “words” were important to Christians, but they are not. Most don’t even understand words. The most hateful people in America are so called “Christians.” There are two movements aligned at the moment: Dominionism and the New Apostolic Reformation. Dominionism is the most anti-biblical thing out there. Purely because they cannot read. They don’t see the word dominion. They see the word dominate. They want to dominate

I think that the most important thing to realise right now is that Christian Nationalism isn’t about God, or Jesus, or the Bible. It’s about powerful people wanting to take over every aspect of America. When one thinks about it, writing about the New Apostolic Reformation makes one sound like a conspiracy theorist. The fact unfortunately is that it is a conspiracy. They actually are wanting to take over America. Using Jesus of course. Not the real Jesus, but a pumped up, muscle Jesus. Because the “real” Jesus of the Bible is too much of a wuss, riding

🧵 It’s endlessly fascinating to me how humans have been led to believe in their smallness. That humans are small and therefore are fearful organisms that need to believe in something larger than themselves. It’s most illogical. They believe the universe is “out there.” That they are small and insignificant in comparison. The fact however is simple. You are the universe. You are right in it making up part of the universe. You are part of the entire thing. And immensely complex. Some people say we are all made of star stuff. A star might seem vast based

The “supposed” Christians in America have become who they are because of the New Apostolic Reformation. A movement that has been taking over churches. Particularly charismatic churches. The leaders of the NAR appointed themselves “apostles.” These apostles tell their followers that it is “them” they should listen to. They’ve been given the authority of “God.” They were told this by a visit from an “Angel” or a ‘Saint’ or ‘Moses” etc, etc.
It is about power. Throughout history, some immoral figure would convince their followers that they speak for God
