The Bible is Not a Book About the Creator God, but the Annunaki

Enjoy the radio interview with Dr. Jack Pruett, obstetrician and gynecologist, and author of "The Grandest Deception" - a book based upon the works of Dr. Zechariah Sitchin and the Bible.  You may not agree with every point that Dr. Pruett makes, but please keep your mind open.  Many people such as myself believe in a Creator God, but we believe there's definitely something seriously wrong with the Bible - and that this fact isn't being faced or explained by Bible believers.

I happen to share Dr. Pruett's belief that the Bible - especially the Old Testament - is primarily a segment of our human ancestors' ancient story about their interaction with our Annunaki creators.  But I believe evidence indicates that humanity has experienced multiple genetic interventions and "fixes," and that while we may be made in the humanoid image of our Annunaki creators, we are a hybrid species that reflects a rich DNA diversity of numerous extraterrestrial star races.   And I'm not certain that the Annunaki is the malevolent race that Dr. Pruett believes it is.  Maybe at one time the Annunaki used us as slaves, but just like humans have evolved over thousands of years, so too could the Annunaki.   Eventually we'll know the truth.                                                                                                                       ~Madison Reed

The Initiation


Dying a thousand times is part of the Initiation - the "Via Dolorosa," or the Dark Night of the Soul.

The beautiful Love is always close to us!  And even though we can't always attain that Desire of our heart on the physical plane, if our hearts are steadfast and open, and strongly attracted to our Beloved Love, we will make it to the Paradise of Reunion.  She will join us there.

All of this is part of the natural order, as the envied and hated Love must always comes into the world, where she finds Herself enmeshed in the mire of physical reality, sacrificed over and over again until She is liberated - once the suffocating veils are ripped off, permanently!      ~Madison Reed

Belarusian Mother asks the world to help her stop the execution of her son by Belarusian authorities


On November 30th the Supreme Court of Belarus sentenced my son Uladzislau Kavalyou (Vladislav Kovalev) and another young man Dzmitry Kanavalau (Dmitry Konovalov) to death.

Kanavalau was convicted in organizing the terrorist attacks in 2005 in Vitebsk, in 2008 in Minsk, and in the subway of Minsk in April 2011. My son Uladzislau was convicted of aiding.

The accusations are based on the statements made by these two young men, which, as many believe, were given under physical and emotional pressure. None of what has been said in court is supported by any evidence. My son insists he had not been involved in the terrorist attack and suggested Dzmitry Kanavalau has no relation to them either.

I believe that my son is innocent.
So do victims of the attack and many international human rights organizations:

- The victims of the attack have a number of questions regarding the impartiality and transparency of the trial and access to the case materials. Aliaksandr Kruty, a representative of one of the injured from the April attack Inesa Krutaya, made a motion to abolish the death penalty and asked the court to defer consideration of the case. A few days later - on September 20th - he was arrested and sent to a mental hospital allegedly for hooliganism. None of their motions were considered by the court;

- The defendants claimed that they were exposed to torture during the investigation to extract confessions.

- During the trial, independent journalists were banned from communicating with victims. The official media already refer to Kavalyou and Kanavalau as terrorists without awaiting the decision of the court.

With this petition, I am turning to you asking one single thing: I am asking you not to kill my son Uladzislau Kavalyou and Dzmitry Kanavalau, but instead to find those who are actually responsible for these terrorist crimes.

PLEASE HELP by signing the petition at Change.org, which will go to European authorities. 


Русская версия ходатайство: ПОЖАЛУЙСТА, ПОМОГИТЕ СПАСТИ МОЕГО СЫНА ОТ СМЕРТНОЙ КАЗНИ!

Versión en español de la petición: Salva a mi hijo de la pena de muerte

At the moment Belarus is the only country in Europe, which continues to execute death sentences. And while these two men being murdered, those who are responsible for the attacks are walking freely.
Reports and Statements of Human Rights Groups:

Human Rights House: Human rights defenders concerned over trial against terrorism suspects in Belarus
Belarus Human Rights Group "Viasna": Stop murder – in the name of the people!
Amnesty International: Belarus continues to execute people despite the international pressure, date and time of executions are not made public to the families, bodies never returned.

Discovery: Apostle Paul accepted Christian homosexuals

Apostle Paul's Aeropagus Address on Mars Hill, Athens
For the last 2,000 years, Christians have been taught to believe that Apostle Paul condemned homosexuality. But a new discovery documents that he deliberately acknowledged that it does not prevent anyone from entering heaven. This discovery by internationally acclaimed cryptographer Michael Wood removes the final barrier to full societal acceptance of gays and lesbians.

“Michael Wood’s discovery is remarkable because it solves a colossal paradox regarding Paul’s Greek that has baffled scholars for 2,000 years,” says Dr. William Berg, who taught Greek and Roman Classics at Stanford University.

Paul’s only unequivocal reference to homosexuality is found within Romans 1:18-3:20, a Biblical passage that has mystified scholars for two millennia. “The interpretation of Romans 1:18-3:20 has been notoriously difficult for almost every commentator,” Richard Longenecker, the Distinguished New Testament Scholar at Wheaton College, writes in his book ‘Studies in Paul.’ “Earlier interpreters such as Origen, Jerome, Augustine, and Erasmus wrestled with this issue and it continues to plague commentators today.”’

The passage is riddled with paradoxes. It says that “only the doers of the law will be vindicated by God,” and “by the works of the law no one will be vindicated.” The passage also mysteriously separates idolatrous, homosexual, orgy fests from transgressions worthy of spiritual death. “In finding the definitive solution to Paul’s legal paradox, I inadvertently discovered why he separated the idolatrous, same-sex orgies from the things he considered worthy of spiritual death,” said Wood.


Dr. Berg has spent many months examining the linguistic and historical basis of what he describes as Wood’s “remarkable” discovery. “Michael Wood reveals to the public a well-kept secret, namely that the apostle Paul, like the rest of his contemporaries, divided the commands of the Jewish law into two groups demarcated by Leviticus 19:18—‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the commandments based on loving your neighbor were ‘Justices of the Torah.’ Those not based on Leviticus 19:18 were ‘Jobs of the Torah.’” Dr. Berg explained.

Wood’s solution is definitive, elegant, and verifiable. Romans 2:13-26 teaches: Only the doers of the ‘Justices of the Torah’ will be vindicated before God. Romans 3:20 says, “By the ‘Jobs of the Torah’ no one will be vindicated.” Not only is there no contradiction, but the two teachings have always been simple restatements of each other; the “Great Paradox” is no paradox at all!

This legal solution fully explains Paul’s treatment of homosexuality. Paul’s passage excludes idolatrous, homosexual, orgy fests from things which he considered worthy of spiritual death, things such as “bad-mouthing others,” “deceiving,” and “inflicting pain.” Those engaged in idolatrous, homosexual orgies weren’t violating the Justices (they weren’t violating the precept, “Love your neighbor as yourself”). Therefore, Paul was obliged to separate this from his list of things which did violate the Justices.

The finding is significant because it documents that Paul purposefully separated the same-sex acts; it was a conscious, deliberate decision consistent with the rest of the passage. In fact, it was demanded by the rest of the passage. The resolution of the paradox empirically proves that Paul’s view on homosexuality was very different from what Christians had thought for 2,000 years.

Although Romans 1 contains the only unequivocal reference to homosexuality, anti-homosexual statements have been introduced into other passages in newer versions of the English Bible. As for these modern changes to the Biblical text: “Michael Wood has gone the extra mile in being faithful to Paul’s Greek,” said Dr. Berg. “He shows, time and again, that the words traditionally mistranslated as ‘homosexual,’ ‘effeminate,’ ‘impure,’ and so forth, are really targeting selfish, unloving, unjust activity and have nothing to do with sexual orientation. He shows that once again Paul was condemning those who violate the Justices of the Torah, and nothing more.”

Full details of Michael Wood’s definitive solution to the 2,000-year-old paradox and the implications for full acceptance of gays and lesbians are discussed in his new book, ‘Paul on Homosexuality.’

Former Sheriff of the Year busted for trafficking methamphetamines

Sheriff Pat Sullivan, photo by RJ Sangosti
by

Every civil servant wants to experience his or her legacy firsthand--but not the way that onetime Arapahoe Sheriff Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. has. Sullivan, a nationally renowned law enforcement leader, was arrested on drug charges and is now being detained in the Denver area jail that bears his name.

Sullivan, who in 2001 was named the National Sheriff Association's "Sheriff of the Year," was arrested on suspicion of trafficking methamphetamines.

Local news station CBS4 began an investigation of Sullivan last month on a tip that he had agreed to meet a male informant, providing drugs in exchange for sex. He was subsequently arrested by the South Metro Drug Task Force and is currently being held on a $250,000 bond.

And in an incredible twist of fate, Sullivan now cooling his heels at The Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. Detention Facility, named in his honor.

Androids, BlackBerries and Nokia Smartphones Are Spying on You!

An Android developer recently discovered a clandestine application called Carrier IQ built into most smartphones that doesn't just track your location; it secretly records your keystrokes, and there's nothing you can do about it. Is it time to put on a tinfoil hat? That depends on how you feel about privacy.

The reason for this invasive Android app seems reasonable enough at face value. Even though it's on most Android, BlackBerry and Nokia devices, most users would never know that Carrier IQ is running in the background, and that's sort of the point. Described on the company's website as software to gain "unprecedented insight into their customers' mobile experience," Carrier IQ is ostensibly supposed to help mobile carriers and device manufacturers gather data in order to improve their products. Tons of applications do this, and you're probably used to those boxes that pops up on your screen and ask if you want to help the company by sending your data back to them. If you're concerned about your privacy, you just tap no and go about your merry computing way. As security-conscious Android developer Trevor Eckhart realized, however, Carrier IQ does not give you this option, and unless you were code-savvy and looking for it, you'd never know it was there. And based on how aggressive the company has been in trying to keep Eckhart quiet about his discovery, it seems like Carrier IQ doesn't want you to know it's there either.

"The biggest leap that the Extraterrestrial Races are excited about, is the idea of us being open to extraterrestrial life, number 1, and number 2, to the idea of letting go of our dogmas.  Because if we cannot let go of the dogma, we cannot embrace other possibilities.  Because what we're gonna find out is that many of the dogmas that we have held as cherished truths were false all along.  And we've been building a civilization on lies."  ~Alex Collier

EQUALITY (My Story)


by Lori Sirois

I am giving you all just a brief history of my life, the rest is just to painful to write.  Here is my story........

I am putting my life in front of the world for the first time ever why? Because maybe my story will help bring healing to a world so full of hate, greed and despair.

My name is Lori Sirois this is my story. As a young child I was raised in a household full of anger, strife, and emotional abuse. I witnessed many physical outbursts between my parents and my grandparents. I spent most of my childhood days trying to disappear and hide from the pain of seeing my Mother and Father fighting physically, yelling, screaming, and cursing in front of me. My Grandmother called me stupid and said I would never amount to anything telling me I was weak and too sensitive. I had many aspirations when I was young I wanted to play the guitar and I remember one Christmas I got a brand new guitar from Santa (yes this was at an age when I still believed in Santa Clause) On that Christmas morning my parents got into a fight with my grandmother and my guitar was picked up by my grandmother and smashed right before my eyes. My mother struck my grandmother drawing blood from her lip and all I could remember was I was devastated that day and never believed in Christmas or Santa Clause again.

I never felt safe as a child or grounded. I was very shy and insecure growing up and felt different from the rest of kids my age. I was picked on by most of the kids and beat up a lot. I was a loner mostly because I did not want anyone to see the ugly truth behind closed doors. I was ashamed of my family and did everything possible to keep the other kids from seeing the truth.

I was alone with my thoughts never knowing what life was all about in fact I never knew what love was.

Fast-forward I dropped out of High School at the age of 16 my life at that point was in turmoil my Mother and Father separated and I was now in a state of complete emptiness with no mentor no help from any school consular or anyone for that matter. I was on my own lost in a world that was pretty big, cruel and full of deception. I was taken advantage of by many men and raped! I was lied to on countless occasions! I was in trouble. I had no life skills or no one to turn to. I went from job to job never ever staying long enough to better myself because the only thing I knew was I was insecure, stupid and alone and like my Grandmother had said I would never amount to anything. She was always in my subconscious mind you know that little voice that talks to you mostly when you don’t want it to! She had me really believeing that I was worthless sad but true. I never felt whole or safe. I tried to go back to school but again I quit and never followed through because I failed the courses so after that I never went back. I was a high school drop out with no future, and no hope of a future.

At the age of 18 years I received a phone call at work. I was working a security job at the time and drinking a small coffee when the voice on the other end of the line was my Mother’s telling me that my Father had been murdered. I remember dropping my cup of coffee onto the floor and I fell to my knees in tears, I was again devastated and this time it took it’s toll on me. For years I was walking with anger and no one to help guide me so I turned to Alcohol. I started drinking heavily in my 20’s and 30’s it was the only thing that took away my pain even if it was only temporary it was the only thing I could count on. I was thrown in jail several times because of drinking and driving. I was thrown in jail for fighting while drinking and I was I in jail the majority of my early 20’s and early 30’s. I was lost, hurt, angry, bitter and completely out of touch with reality. I still felt like that little girl so insecure and lost never knowing or knew what life was all about. I never went back to school or finished anything in my life even though I had tried, and tried. I ended up failing at everything I did or touched this included my relationships with other women. I did manage to straighten out my life somewhat, but I always walked with shame and fear.

Now I am 46 married to a wonderful woman from Montreal who loves me for who I am and never judges me for my shortcomings. I am so grateful to GOD for her and I know NOW what LOVE really is. I know that LOVE is not supposed to be violent, shameful or conditional. I know now that love is the foundation to happiness and peace, I finally found the love of my life the ONE who completes me the one who understands me the one that accepts me for who I am BUT there is a problem with our marriage and that problem is the United States Government. They say my love and my marriage is not valid nor can I sponsor my wife to come live with me in Texas. They say I am a second-class citizen and I do not deserve the same happiness as any other married couple here in America.

Most people ask me why don’t you move Lori, well here is the truth. I do not have an education. I have 3 Dogs that need me; I have an aging Mother who needs me. I have no where to live even if I did go to Montreal my Wife lives with her Ex and they share a home together and I cannot ask my wife to move away from here home and get an apartment while she works 2 jobs to support us because I am not legally able to work there until I am immigrated there which takes thousands of dollars we BOTH do not have and we are at an age where our health is of concern as well. I am diabetic and need medication to survive. So before you all think it is so cut and dry black and white we just do not have the Money to do this.

I have been trying to start a business to help support myself and bring my wife here even if it is only 6 months at a time. A business is the only solution for us. It takes money to live and the bills will never stop just because she is here in the USA . I would have to pay her bills as well while she is here. Having a business is our only solution until hopefully one day the USA will stop it’s discrimination and allow me to sponsor my wife into the USA.

I would love to go back to school and I have tried, but the cost of school is enormous and I cannot afford to start all over at my age of 46. I am in finacial debt already from having to purchase plane tickets and hotel lodging from traveling back and forth for 4 plus years now. I am in tears most days missing my wife, I spend every holiday alone and every night praying that LOVE will prevail. I ask myself will my life story ever have a happy ending?

Please help support the destruction of DOMA!  Please help us! Thank you for reading my story I hope and pray that I have opened up your hearts to help and stand up for me and all Bi-National couples out there that are struggling and needing your voice and strength. Change takes an army of people both gay and straight. My sincere wish is for ALL of you to find LOVE and keep it close to your hearts and never take it for granted! Love starts with us..... lets end the hate!

May God bless us all,
Lori Sirois

"When I saw the coherence between the crop circles and the ancient encodings, I thought that regardless of whoever created them; and wherever they're from, there must be an important purpose to these designs.  They're so coherent.  I've come to believe that the pattern of the torus and the vector equilibrium; especially in the form of the 64 tetrahedron crystal, is showing us how energy works in the universe so that we can know how to align with it.  I believe they're giving us a model for accessing energy in a clean, safe, and limitless way - and new means of propulsion.  What more important message could there be for them to give to us?"  ~Foster Gamble

Beat Babies for Jesus? Focus on the Family Founder James Dobson, Says Yes - Compares it to the Need to Beat Dogs


There is a brutal movement in America that legitimizes child abuse in the name of God.

"But this is not a book about the discipline of dogs; there is an important moral to my story that is highly relevant to the world of children. JUST AS SURELY AS A DOG WILL OCCASIONALLY CHALLENGE THE AUTHORITY OF HIS LEADERS, SO WILL A LITTLE CHILD -- ONLY MORE SO."    ~Pastor James Dobson


 by Frank Schaeffer

There is a brutal movement in America that legitimizes child abuse in the name of God. Two stories recently converged to make us pay attention. Last week, a video went viral of a Texas judge brutally whipping his disabled daughter. And on Monday, the New York Times published a story about child deaths in homes that have embraced the teachings of To Train Up a Child, a book by Christian preacher Michael Pearl that advocates using a switch on children as young as six months old.

What many people may not realize is that in the evangelical alternative universe of the home school movement, tightly knit church communities and the following of a number of big-time leaders and authors, physical punishment of children has been glorified for years.

As the Times illustrates -- "Preaching Virtue of Spanking, Even as Deaths Fuel Debate" -- the books of Michael Pearl and his wife Debi have been found in the homes where several children were killed.

They're not the only right-wing Christians who advocate these methods. Some of the most respected evangelical discipline gurus have made beating children not just "respectable" in conservative religious circles, but even turned it into a godly activity.n 1977 James Dobson founder of the "Focus on the Family" religious empire and radio program, wrote a book called Dare To Discipline, whose purpose was, essentially, to get parents to beat their children.

In his book Dobson glorified a sadomasochistic/spiritual ritual of "discipline." He said he wanted to stop a "liberal" trend in America that was moving away from the godly thrashing of infants. He wanted to help "restore" America to God and the good old days of child hitting. This fit in well with the notion of God as retribution-in-chief that evangelicals endorse.

U.S. Sheriffs Rise Up Against Federal Government



“I had spent a good part of my life enforcing the penal code, but not understanding my oath of office,” he told the audience. “I was ignorant and naïve, but now I know of the assault against our people by the federal government.”  ~Del Norte County Sheriff Dean Wilson



 by Pat Shannan

As more people became dissatisfied with federal government controls and land grabs, it was inevitable that local law enforcement would eventually see the bigger picture. At the northern California fairgrounds of Yreka last month, seven California sheriffs and another from Oregon gathered with a large group of citizens to say that they are finally going to do something about it.

“A giant has been awakened,” said Plumas County, Calif. Sheriff Greg Hagwood, “and they didn’t count on that,” speaking of the federal bureaucracy.

With exposure of the Emergency Management Center in San Luis Obispo a few decades ago, California began to offer the rest of the nation some evidence of the psychological conditioning aimed from the federal level at state, county and city law enforcement.

Dean Wilson, sheriff of Del Norte County (Sacramento), is a great example of this great awakening. He received the loudest and longest applause for his candor in confessing past faults after apologizing for not understanding the central government assault and land grab being committed against the people and what he should have been doing about it. Only in the past year has he done a turnaround and begun to behave as a county sheriff instead of an extension of federal law enforcement.

“I had spent a good part of my life enforcing the penal code, but not understanding my oath of office,” he told the audience. “I was ignorant and naïve, but now I know of the assault against our people by the federal government.”
Host sheriff John Lopey of Siskiyou County, speaking about the federal environmental intervention, said: “I have told federal and state officials over and over that, yes, we want to preserve the environment, but you care more about the fish, frogs, trees and birds than you do about the human race. When will you start to balance your decisions to the needs of the people?” Later he told the audience, “We are right now in a fight for our survival.”

Glenn Palmer, sheriff of Grant County, Oregon, said, “If an elected official has not taken an oath of office, he does not belong in office.”

AFP readers are familiar with the work of former Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack, who has spent the latter half of his life teaching sheriffs that they are the top law enforcement officers in their counties despite continuing federal intervention attempts. The ears that were deaf for so long may finally be starting to hear.

“It’s becoming a national movement now,” Mack told AFP, citing Immigration and Naturalization Service failure at the Mexican borders, the phony drug war, plus IRS and other unconstitutional intervention within these states.

His plans to take this movement national will be launched at a January meeting, where he anticipates 200 sheriffs will be in attendance.

“The county sheriff is the last line of defense guarding our people’s liberty,” he said.

Retired USAF Col. Richard Niemela of Reston, Va. has been exposing the federal monster for years.

He told AFP: “It’s the surreptitious domination by international globalists insidiously using unauthorized and illegal tactics to render null and void those historic and unique powers of the sheriff.”

Lesbian Filmmaker Crashes Republican Tea Party Debate: Exposes Gingrich Pandering to Santorum

Kristina Lapinski and Rick Santorum

by Melanie Nathan

Kristina Lapinski, from GAY U.S.A. the Movie, a documentary filmmaker, found herself seated in the front row next to State Republican Speaker William O’Brien, and Collista Gingrich at One Liberty Lane Hampton, New Hampshire, for Thursday night’s Granite State Patriots Liberty PAC candidates forum.

Lapinski, holding a legitimate ticket, had her camera poised furtively with unprecedented chutzpah, while in the company of some fifty heavy hitting Tea Party Republicans, who had no idea who she was or why she was there!

The young liberal democrat, dressed in a tailed, wide shoulder black double breasted jacket, and a white shirt, sporting a star spangled tie, looked ‘voguishly’ Barnum Circus and quite out of place. “I felt like I was in the lion’s den” said Lapinski.

The debate featured a combination of town hall and Lincoln-Douglas formats, with only two candidates appearing on stage at a time. Governors Gary Johnson and Buddy Roemer debated first, and were followed by former senator Rick Santorum and former speaker Newt Gingrich.

In keeping with the theme of the evening, the audience was handed copies of the U.S. Constitution printed by the anti-gay Heritage Foundation. The ‘show’ began with the Pledge of Allegiance, then a prayer and comments about the importance of God in politics.

After Roemer and Johnson left the stage, Lapinski approached the moderator and handed him a piece of paper with her question. Admitting her flirtatious exploit, Lapinski said: “Sir, this issue affects me personally and it would mean a lot to me if you could slip it in and ask my question.”

“I was surrounded by Tea Party people and was determined to have a gay rights question asked, to film for my movie” asserts Lapinski. As one can imagine, she was delighted when her question was actually posed to both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum: “This question is from Kristina who is in the audience,” he announced, “If voted President of the United States would you support a Constitutional Amendment banning same-sex marriage?”

Gingrich was quick to blow off the question with a quick one liner: “marriage is between a man and a woman!” Santorum, on the other hand had his pew, with canned rhetoric and the can-opener at the ready......

Upcoming Mayan film documentary will claim proof of aliens. according to Mexican government

A new documentary about Mayan civilization will provide evidence of extraterrestrial contact with the ancient culture, according to a Mexican government official and the film's producer.

"Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond," currently in production, will claim the Mayans had contact with extraterrestrials, producer Raul Julia-Levy revealed to TheWrap.
El Mirador
"Mexico will release codices, artifacts and significant documents with evidence of Mayan and extraterrestrial contact, and all of their information will be corroborated by archaeologists," said Julia-Levy, son of actor Raul Julia.

In a release to TheWrap, Luis Augusto Garcia Rosado, the minister of tourism for the Mexican state of Campeche, said new evidence has emerged "of contact between the Mayans and extraterrestrials, supported by translations of certain codices, which the government has kept secure in underground vaults for some time."

He also spoke, in a phone conversation, of "landing pads in the jungle that are 3,000 years old."

Raul-Julia claims there is proof that the Mayans had intended to lead the planet for thousands of years, but were forced to escape after an invasion by "men of dark intentions," leaving behind evidence of an advanced race.

"The Mexican government is not making this statement on their own -- everything we say, we're going to back it up," he said.
The film will be directed by Juan Carlos Rulfo, who won the Humanitas Prize for "Those Who Remain" in 2009 and the Sundance Grand Jury Prize for International Documentary for "In the Pit" in 2006. Juan Diego Rodriguez Gonzalez will serve as the Guatemalan executive producer, and Eduardo Vertiz as the Mexican executive producer.

And yes, they expect people to take this seriously, because the messages he plans to impart are crucial to human survival, Julia-Levy insisted.

When Julia-Levy, producer Ed Elbert and co-producer Sheila McCarthy announced the Mexican cooperation with their documentary to TheWrap in August, they were circumspect about claims of alien contact, with Julia-Levy admitting he'd been ordered not to say anything about it.

Satanic Homophobia Claims the Life of a 40-year-old Gay LDS (Mormon) Man

by Eric Ethington

PITTSBORO, N.C. — Bryan Michael Egnew, 40, spent the last decades of his life building up the courage to come out to his family and Mormon church. Once he did his life, family and religion were stripped away from him, and he committed suicide within a matter of weeks.

Growing up in the Mormon (aka LDS) Church as a gay man isn’t easy. The pain and guilt pile-on as for years you are hammered with lessons telling you that unless you live a perfect heterosexual life, marry in a Mormon Temple, and follow the Church’s laws perfectly, you run the risk of never seeing your family again after death.

It’s a deep hole that many never escape from.

Unfortunately, we have lost another beautiful person to the man-made hell of depression, created when he tried to be honest about himself.

Egnew went on a Mormon Mission when he was 19, was married in a Mormon Temple to his wife Amy and had five children. He served within his local Mormon congregation for years, and outwardly was everything a Mormon man was expected to be. But inside, Egnew fought a constant struggle over whether to continue pretending, or to be honest about himself.

One of Egnew’s friends, Jahn Curran, tells us that he has known Bryan since they attended college together at BYU, and like Egnew, Curran was also hiding the fact that he was gay. Years later, Curran would find the courage to come out of the closet, but Egnew was too afraid of what the consequences would be.

But last month, Egnew found that courage and came out to his family and his church. The results were tragic.

According to Curran, Egnew’s wife Amy immediately packed up their children and drove them out of state to Tennessee, refusing to let Egnew see them. His parents and family withdrew, and his Church immediately excommunicated him because he refused to denounce his sexual orientation.

PRIDEinUtah readers may remember our interview with Mitch Mayne, an openly gay man who currently serves in the bishopric of his local Mormon ward (as long as he remains celibate). His local church leaders are actually supportive of him speaking openly about the fact that he’s gay, and encourage his story to be told. Contrast that with the unfeeling heartlessness of Bryan’s leaders … it’s a stark difference.

You see, despite the thousands of reported suicides among LGBT Mormons, the Mormon high-leadership still refuse to put into place any official guidelines or provide training to local leaders on what to do when a person chooses to be honest about themselves.

The result is the long trail of suicides of individuals who were left to face the wrath of local prejudices.

Egnew’s case is made worse by the fact that his family has tried to suppress and hide what happened and who Egnew was since his suicide on Sept. 10, 2011.

His obituary made no reference to the fact that he was gay or the horror that his Church put him through in the last weeks of his life. His Facebook page was scrubbed of any mention of the truth and family members blocked anyone who might tell Egnew’s story.

How long will the Mormon Church continue to let their members die before they decide that LGBT people are worth being treated as equals?

Calls to the Mormon Church for comment have not been returned.

Are jobs obselete?

By Douglas Rushkoff

Editor's note: Douglas Rushkoff is a media theorist and the author of "Program or Be Programmed: Ten Commands for a Digital Age" and "Life Inc: How Corporatism Conquered the World and How We Can Take it Back."

(CNN) -- The U.S. Postal Service appears to be the latest casualty in digital technology's slow but steady replacement of working humans. Unless an external source of funding comes in, the post office will have to scale back its operations drastically, or simply shut down altogether. That's 600,000 people who would be out of work, and another 480,000 pensioners facing an adjustment in terms.

We can blame a right wing attempting to undermine labor, or a left wing trying to preserve unions in the face of government and corporate cutbacks. But the real culprit -- at least in this case -- is e-mail. People are sending 22% fewer pieces of mail than they did four years ago, opting for electronic bill payment and other net-enabled means of communication over envelopes and stamps.

New technologies are wreaking havoc on employment figures -- from EZpasses ousting toll collectors to Google-controlled self-driving automobiles rendering taxicab drivers obsolete. Every new computer program is basically doing some task that a person used to do. But the computer usually does it faster, more accurately, for less money, and without any health insurance costs.

We like to believe that the appropriate response is to train humans for higher level work. Instead of collecting tolls, the trained worker will fix and program toll-collecting robots. But it never really works out that way, since not as many people are needed to make the robots as the robots replace.

Basis of claims and background information on LGBT asylum-seekers and refugees from Belarus


By Viachaslau Bortnik

Introduction

Based on official statistics made available to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) by asylum countries, the number of citizens from the Republic of Belarus (Belarus) claiming asylum in 29 of the most industrialized countries in the world, while limited, has increased in the last few years (UNHCR, 2004). The number of cases of asylum-seekers and refugees has grown from 3,291 in 2000 to 6,480 in 2010, peaking in 2006 (11,062).  This trend has generated numerous queries addressed to the UNHCR by asylum countries assembling information relevant to the determination of the status of asylum-seekers originating from Belarus.

The number of gender-related claims (including those based on discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people) is not known, but one can assume that the large increase in asylum claims overall includes an increase in these types of claims. According to the results of a survey conducted by Gay.by in April 2011, 65.6% of respondents have thought of leaving Belarus because of homophobia. The UNHCR addressed matters related to homosexual asylum-seekers and refugees originating from Belarus in its background paper (UNHCR, 2004). The Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada did the same in 1995 and 2006.

No original publications with any scientific data on LGBT asylum-seekers and refugees from Belarus are available yet. The goal of this article is to set out legal considerations bearing upon the grouping of LGBT claimants and provide a review of the relevant material on the situation of LGBT people in Belarus. This article is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim for refugee protection. Neither can it be considered an exhaustive analysis.

Not O.K. at the O.K. Corral

by Op-Ed Columnist, Maureen Dowd

So we’ll never go back to the future?

A group of physicists at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has revealed time travel to be more fiction than science.

They have released a research report proving that a single photon, a unit of light, cannot exceed the speed of light, as time-travel conjurers from H.G. Wells to Rod Serling to Woody Allen had hoped.

The physicists determined for the first time that the photon follows Einstein’s theory that the speed of light is “the traffic law of the universe,” and that nothing can travel faster than light.

So if President Obama is fantasizing about climbing Marty McFly-style into a juiced-up DeLorean and going back to a more civilized, productive era when America wasn’t an over-the-hill deadbeat and when Washington wasn’t a shrieking, destructive, primal, feudal, apocalyptic wasteland of partisan banshees, he’s out of luck. Or science.

For half a century, our trust in government has been falling off a cliff. Some presidential elections have been more about voting against somebody rather than for somebody. There were upticks in faith when Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton delivered prosperity.

But now trust levels are drooping even lower. The public has less faith in Congress than Wall Street, and that’s saying something. Most Americans either feel that government is broken or that the fix is in, so that special interests and a handful of people at the top are the only ones benefiting.

The last century was the American century. But this one will not be, thanks to George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, who used their boots and spurs to ride roughshod over the globe and American economy. They spent eight years and trillions of dollars either barging into stuff they should have left alone or leaving alone stuff they should have intervened on.

W. accomplished the impossible: He made the Daddy Party less quick-draw. Republicans’ isolationist wing is stronger now because some conservatives and libertarians don’t want to pay to stumble into endless, pointless wars.

Still, if the epic budget battle being waged on the Potomac is our own version of the Harrison Ford-Daniel Craig movie “Cowboys & Aliens” — where our favorite American myths collide — the Republicans will want to be the cowboys.

How else can they continue to paint the president as an aloof, intellectually arrogant, pointy-eared alien?

President Spock, who so sparingly makes emotional connections, felt he had a real one with John Boehner. Chomping Nicorette through the stressful negotiations, Obama actually grew fond of the old-school Republican speaker puffing on cigarettes.

An alien and a cowboy, trying to connect on a fairway rather than a frontier and save America from a credit rating that would be alarmingly comparable to mine.

The Republican “Taliban wing,” as some Democrats dub the rabid Tea Party militants, was determined to break up any budding Obama-Boehner bromance.

Shockingly, the president was left waiting by the phone one day last week while the speaker would not take or return his calls. At some point, Obama, the jilted lover, simply gave up and went to bed.

The White House feels that its foes not only want to stomp on any reasonable compromise; they want to make sure that Obama never has the presidency he dreamed of, one that isn’t about digging out from W.’s intractable messes; one that helps the parties reason together and move into the future.

Obama, after all, is a new entity. He’s not really a Democratic president. Or a Republican one. He’s the first Independent president, creating his own party.

I highly recommend ordering your own DVD set of History Channel's "Third Reich - The Rise & Fall" in support of this documentary's magnificent contribution to our world's history.

This program shows how Hitler and the Nazis came into power, the reasons behind it, and why the German people embraced Hitler the way they did.  Apart from the other Nazi shows made in America, this one does not denounce Nazism. It just presents the facts as told by the people who were there. This is one of the best shows on the Third Reich ever made.

The World's Last Uncontacted Tribe and The New Human Tribe

By Madison Reed 

There's something about such news about one of the world's last uncontacted tribes - about the idea of being untouched and free from modern civilization's burdensome and sometimes cruel overlay - where we could be refreshed by the beauty of innocence, purity of heart and a direct link of Man to Gaia - that causes me my own feelings of longing for such things, to surface, and a sadness that we have drifted so far away from Man's true beautiful reality.

Why can't we build a global civilization where prosperous and happy families in villages and cities across the world raise children with uncontaminated minds, who grow up to be enlightened beings who manifest the fruits of Love, and who know no hatred; who become explorers of everything there could possibly be to know about Creation, and our limitless human potential?

-Like a peaceful, modern and technologically advanced human civilization, plugged-in to higher spiritual intelligence, and completely free from religious superstition, myth and dogma, FOREVER - unbarred and permanently linked into our relationship with the living Earth and all the wonderful creatures that populate the Universe - with villages; cities and governments; economies and modes of transportation and manufacture, that cause no harm to the health, progress and beauty of our living world?

In reflection about the recent grim news about the right-wing Christian fundamentalist, Anders Behring Breivik, who attacked and killed so many people in Norway yesterday, I'd like to ask everyone if they believe our minds and hearts have become so jaded and polluted that such a vision as I've mentioned is too much of a challenge for us? Or are we so lost spiritually, and disconnected from the Creator, that we choose hatred over love, and imagine evil to be good?  My answer is, "No" to my last questions, and "YES, we can build the world that many of us long to see."  I believe the new human tribe that will help us manifest these realities, is already here, born and growing up, to become our future teachers.

Older manuscript debunks '666' as number of the 'Beast' - Will Christianity and Satanism survive?


By Chris Wattie

Satanists, apocalypse watchers and heavy metal guitarists may have to adjust their demonic numerology after a recently deciphered ancient biblical text revealed that 666 is not the fabled Number of the Beast after all.

A fragment from the oldest surviving copy of the New Testament, dating to the Third century, gives the more mundane 616 as the mark of the Antichrist.

Ellen Aitken, a professor of early Christian history at McGill University, said the discovery appears to spell the end of 666 as the devil’s prime number.

“This is a very nice piece to find,” Dr. Aitken said. “Scholars have argued for a long time over this, and it now seems that 616 was the original number of the beast.”

The tiny fragment of 1,500-year-old papyrus is written in Greek, the original language of the New Testament, and contains a key passage from the Book of Revelation.

Where more conventional versions of the Bible give 666 as the “number of the beast,” or the sign of the anti-Christ whose coming is predicted in the book’s apocalyptic verses, the older version uses the Greek letters signifying 616.

“This is very early confirmation of that number, earlier than any other text we’ve found of that passage,” Dr. Aitken said. “It’s probably about 100 years before any other version.”

The fragment was part of a hoard of previously illegible manuscripts discovered in an ancient garbage dump outside the Egyptian city of Oxyrhynchus. Although the papyrus was first excavated in 1895, it was badly discoloured and damaged. Classics scholars at Oxford University were only recently able to read it using new advanced imaging techniques.

Elijah Dann, a professor of philosophy and religion at the University of Toronto, said the new number is unlikely to make a dent in the popularity of 666.

“Otherwise, a lot of sermons would have to be changed and a lot of movies rewritten,” he said with a laugh. “There’s always someone with an active imagination who can put another interpretation on it.

“It just shows you that when you study something as cryptic and mystic as the Book of Revelation there’s an almost unlimited number of interpretations.”

The book is thought to have been written by the disciple John and according to the King James Bible, the traditional translation of the passage reads: “Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

But Dr. Aitken said that translation was drawn from much later versions of the New Testament than the fragment found in Oxyrhynchus. “When we’re talking about the early biblical texts, we’re always talking about copies and they are copies made, at best, 150 to 200 years after [the original] was written,” she said.

“They can have mistakes in the copying, changes for political or theological reasons … it’s like a detective story piecing it all together.”

Dr. Aitken said, however, that scholars now believe the number in question has very little to do the devil. It was actually a complicated numerical riddle in Greek, meant to represent someone’s name, she said.

“It’s a number puzzle — the majority opinion seems to be that it refers to [the Roman emperor] Nero.”

Revelation was actually a thinly disguised political tract, with the names of those being criticized changed to numbers to protect the authors and early Christians from reprisals. “It’s a very political document,” Dr. Aitken said. “It’s a critique of the politics and society of the Roman empire, but it’s written in coded language and riddles.”

U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Halts Enforcement of "Don't Ask Don't Tell"

LCR Case, on which Servicemembers United Executive Director is the Sole Veteran Plaintiff, Succeeds Again in Gutting "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
7/6/2011


WASHINGTON, D.C. - Servicemembers United, the nation's largest organization of gay and lesbian troops and veterans, today enthusiastically applauded the order issued by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals lifting its own stay of a lower court's injunction barring enforcement of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law. This move once again renders "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" unenforceable by the Pentagon.

"With the wait for certification dragging out beyond a reasonable time frame, the Court has once again stepped in to require the Pentagon to stop enforcing 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' and this time it very well may be for good," said Alexander Nicholson, Executive Director of Servicemembers United and the sole veteran plaintiff on the case. "I am proud to have worked personally worked with Log Cabin on this case for more than five years now and to have represented the gay military community as the sole named veteran on this lawsuit. Despite the criticisms and years of waiting, this case has yet again successfully eviscerated this outdated, harmful, and discriminatory law."

The Log Cabin Republicans vs. U.S.A. lawsuit is the only contemporary successful challenge to the constitutionality of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law, which requires the Department of Defense to abruptly fire any servicemember found to be gay, lesbian, or bisexual. In 2010, U.S. District Court Judge Virginia Phillips found the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law to be unconstitutional after a two-week trial, and issued an order barring enforcement of the law worldwide. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals subsequently issued a stay of that order pending appeal by the government. Today's order from the Ninth Circuit overturns its own previous stay, rendering "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" once again unenforceable.

Nicholson added, "Servicemembers should still remain extremely cautious with information regarding their sexual orientation for the time being. The issue remains in a state of flux, although guarded optimism is certainly warranted."

Finger length may have link to penis length: study

Hands may say more about their owners than commonly thought, especially in the case of men.

Men whose index fingers are shorter than their ring fingers may have longer penises, according to a South Korean study published in the Asian Journal of Andrology.

"According to our data ... the shorter index (second) finger than ring (fourth) finger you have, the longer stretched penile length you have," wrote Tae Beom Kim at the urology department of Gachon University Gil Hospital in Incheon, South Korea, in reply to questions from Reuters.

Previous studies have shown strong evidence that prenatal testosterone may determine finger development as well as penile length, a relationship that Kim and his colleagues launched a study to focus on.

The study involved 144 men suffering from urological problems that did not affect the length of their penis, which was measured under anesthesia.

The measurements were later compared to the difference in length between their second and fourth fingers on the right hand. Previous studies have shown that the right hand may be more sensitive to the influence of testosterone.

The so-called "digit ratio" in this study refers to the length of the index finger divided by the length of the ring finger. The lower the ratio, the study suggests, the longer the penis may be.

The findings offered "circumstantial evidence that prenatal testosterone is responsible for both traits (penile length and digit formation,)" said Denise McQuade at Skidmore College in New York, who was not involved in the study.

"Digit ratio is non-invasive and easy to measure, yet may provide clues about an individual's prenatal history. Thus, combined with other information, digit ratio offers the potential for clinical usefulness," wrote McQuade in an email reply to questions from Reuters.

Female index and ring fingers tend to be about the same length, she added.

A study last year said that men with long index fingers have a lower risk of prostate cancer.

Researchers at Britain's Warwick University and the Institute of Cancer Researcher found that men whose index finger is longer than their ring finger were one-third less likely to develop the disease than men with the opposite pattern of finger length.

Meet Nikolai Alekseev - Russia's Warrior for the Full Civil Rights of Homosexuals, Bisexuals and Transgenders

Nikolai Alekseev is pure Russian.  The Russian and international LGBT community are extremely fortunate to have his passionate and fiery, in-your-face disposition, to enunciate suffocated truth for the first time to his people.  Hypocrites and bigots, and their apologists and sycophants must not be permitted to have a day of comfort or dignity behind their special titles.

While I agree with the title of today's New York Times article about him - that he "has an uphill battle" - let's not forget that quite a few brave and determined people have made it to the Mt. Everest's summit.  Millions who are receptive will hear Nikolai's message, and the chorus of others warriors like him.  That's all he needs and they need, to sweep away the litter.

The time is here for major changes worldwide.  Our global LGBT community desperately needs more of the people of the Bear warrior spirit like Nikolai.

Russia’s Best-Known Gay Activist Has an Uphill Fight

By Michael Schwirtz

AT first glance, it seemed like a breakthrough for homosexual equality in Russia. After years of battling the authorities, here was Nikolai Alekseyev, Russia’s most visible gay-rights campaigner, on a popular prime-time debate show called “Duel” recently talking about plans to hold a gay pride rally in Moscow.

But the discussion quickly deteriorated, with hostile and bigoted remarks coming not just from Mr. Alekseyev’s opponents but also from the host, who at one point equated homosexuality with pedophilia. When a woman in a Kentucky Derby-style hat started into a screed about “homosexual extremism,” he had had enough.

Calling the woman a lying “hag in a hat,” Mr. Alekseyev charged offstage, stamping a hole through the set as he left.

Any conversation about gay rights in Russia today is bound to be tense. But with Mr. Alekseyev, it can be explosive.

For six years, he has flouted a government ban and held an annual gay-rights event that he calls Moscow Pride. He has weathered arrests and attacks by neo-Nazi thugs, and once got into a shoving match with the press secretary of Yuri M. Luzhkov, the former Moscow mayor who has referred to Mr. Alekseyev’s protests as “satanic.”

With short blond hair and a round, youthful face, Mr. Alekseyev, 33, has the air of a maligned schoolboy out for retribution. He decided to become an activist after Moscow State University, where he was enrolled, refused to accept his graduate thesis, “Legal Regulation of the Status of Sexual Minorities.”

He is brash and provocative, even among would-be supporters. He has berated journalists for coverage he disagrees with.

“He is a complicated person and does not have a mild personality,” said Anna Komarova, a transgender activist allied with Mr. Alekseyev. “But laid-back people choose other occupations.”
