World’s Tallest Jesus Looms Over Poland
Soaring 36 metres towards the heavens, the Christ of Swiebodzin in Poland wears a crown of gold and, as of this weekend, has dethroned the landmark Jesus of Rio de Janeiro as the world’s tallest statue of Christ.
The town’s Catholic priest, Sylwester Zawadzki, who launched the project five years ago, described the statue as ‘the work of my life’.
‘My first vocation was to become a priest, my second was to build the statue,’ Zawadzki told AFP.
Zawadzki watched anxiously on Saturday as workers mounted the final pieces of the Christ figure, arms stretched wide and a massive head, using an enormous crane brought in especially for the extra-hefty load.
The white-robed figure – located 50 kilometres from the Polish-German border and visible from the A2 highway linking Warsaw and Berlin – weighs in at an estimated 440 tonnes. A group of faithful huddled in the rain applauded and chanted ‘thank you, thank you’ towards Zawadzki as the head was mounted in place. Then, facing the figure, they prayed and sang religious hymns.
‘I didn’t especially mean to build the world’s tallest Christ,’ Zawadzki said, adding that the three-metre-high golden crown brings the total height to 36m, 3m higher than the Jesus of Rio.
‘I just wanted it to measure 33m like the 33 years that Christ was alive.’
The statue rests on a mound of earth 16m high and its arms stretch 24m wide. Like the robed Christ figures in Concordia, Bolivia, and in Rio de Janeiro, the statue of Swiebodzin is entirely white – but it is the golden crown that distinguishes the Polish Jesus.
‘This will symbolise Swiebodzin – our priest has made a second Czestochowa,’ rejoiced resident Izabela Sawicz, 32, referring to the famous shrine of the Black Madonna in the southern Polish city, the most important destination for religious pilgrimages in this devoutly Catholic country.
‘This is a very good investment. This will promote the town and attract tourists,’ says Edmund Miara, a local government official, while stressing no public money was spent on the statue.
Zawadzki has refused to divulge the price tag attached to the world’s tallest Christ figure, saying only that is was financed by private donations collected both in Poland and abroad.
A source close to the project told AFP it cost about one million euros ($A1.38 million). Some locals think it is a waste of money.
‘I don’t understand. With all this money, we would have done better to build an elementary school,’ charged Jarek, 41, from a nearby village. ‘This is an exaggeration,’ he told AFP.
The location of the statue, in open fields in front of a supermarket and near the highway, has also sparked criticism.
But to Zawadzki it doesn’t matter. ‘He will be the greatest preacher of the faith. Europe needs preachers like Christ,’ he said, visibly moved.
Pope Faces Homosexual Kiss-in Protest
Pope Benedict XVI on Sunday consecrated a world monument to family, the Sagrada Familia church, in Spain but faced a gay kiss-in protest before he attacked abortion and defended male-female marriage.
As the 83-year-old Pontiff paraded in his “Popemobile” towards the unfinished masterpiece of Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona, 200 gays kissed to protest the Church’s rejection of homosexuality. It was a sign of many Spaniards’ embrace of the changes that Benedict abhors: easier access to abortion, gay marriage laws that have enabled 20,000 unions in five years and swifter divorce.
The Pope, his golden mitre on his head to underline the solemnity of the moment, sprinkled holy water to bless the Sagrada Familia’s massive stone altar as singing from an 800-voice chorus rang out under the vaulted ceilings of the vast church during a special dedication mass. Among an estimated 250,000 people gathered for the Pope, thousands watched on giant screens outside and broke into applause as his blessing transformed the edifice into a Basilica.
Only love and faith can lead to true freedom, said the Pope, draped in a golden robe and white stole encrusted with red crosses, as he addressed 6500 faithful.
“For this reason the Church resists every form of denial of human life and gives its support to everything that would promote the natural order in the sphere of the institution of the family,” he said in a reference to the Church opposition to all abortion.
He urged that children’s lives be defended as “sacred and inviolable” with judicial, social and legislative support, and defended the “indissoluble love of a man and a woman” as the foundation of human life.
As Benedict distributed communion, tens of thousands of people outside lined up to receive the host from attending priests.
Later, outside the church’s Nativity Facade depicting Christ’s early years, he recited the Angelus prayer of devotion to masses of pilgrims, breaking into a smile atthe conclusion as the crowd cheered. Thick crowds had lined his route to the Basilica, most waving yellow-and-white Vatican flags as the cavalcade made its way from the city’s Episcopal palace. But not all welcomed the Pope’s message on his weekend visit to Spain, which began on Saturday in the medieval cobbled streets of Santiago de Compostela, a draw for pilgrims for more than 1000 years.
Hundreds of gay men and women couples locked lips for five minutes as the Pope passed by, breaking off to shout “Get out,” and “pedophile”.
“We are here to demonstrate against the Pope’s visit and call for a change in the mentality of the Catholic institution which still opposes our right to different ways of loving,” said one protester, Sergi Diaz.
In Santiago de Compostela, the Pope had surprised many by warning of a return to 1930s-style “aggressive” anti-clericism, recalling an era when pro-Republicans killed priests and nuns and burned churches.
“Spain saw in the 1930s the birth of a strong and aggressive anti-clericism,” the German-born Pontiff told reporters aboard the papal plane. “The clash between faith and modernity is happening again, and it is very strong today.”
The Catholic Church in Spain was an all-powerful presence in the dictatorship of General Francisco Franco, who defeated the Republicans in the Civil War. But after the return to democracy following his death in 1975 came an end to restrictions on politics, behaviour and sexual mores. Under Socialist Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, the country has gone much further, allowing gay marriage, speedier divorce and easier access to abortions, to the consternation of the Church.
Benedict underscored Gaudi’s faith as he santified the edifice, which has become a symbol of this progressive Mediterranean port city.
“The genius of Antoni Gaudi, inspired by the ardour of his Christian faith, succeeded in raising this sanctuary as a hymn of praise to God carved in stone,” Benedict said.
With the consecration, the main nave is open for daily mass for the first time since the first stone was laid March 19, 1882. Until now mass has been held in the crypt, Gaudi’s last resting place.
Building of the Basilica could take another 15 years at least, with 10 more spires to be constructed, including the central tower crowned by a cross reaching up 170 metres, the main Glory facade, and the sacristies.

Moral Search Engines Squeeze Out Sin On Internet
Seek and ye shall find. A number of new Internet search engines created by Christian, Jewish or Muslim entities aim to filter out queries from Web users in a way that is more relevant to those users and keeps them from temptation, alcohol and pornography.
“We think that the other search engines are way too ‘main street’ oriented. We wanted to provide a solution to explore the Web in a safe environment, where you won’t bump into explicit content or immoral websites, like pornography,” said Reza Sardeha, the Amsterdam-based founder of the Muslim-oriented search engine I’mHalal.
If one types the world alcohol into imhalal.com, the search engine produces results that explain the Muslim viewpoint on drinking. Type in “pornography,” and the search engine produces… nothing. The 21-year-old Kuwaiti says the site attracts users from places like Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates as well as the United States.
“Actually we know that our users are not only Muslims, and once a week we get an email from non-Muslims as well saying that they like the content of our safe search engine and they allow their children to search knowing they won’t bump into offensive content.”
For Christians, SeekFind offers “a research tool for people who are looking for biblical and theological content from an evangelical Christian prospective,” says founder Shea Houdmann, who operates from Colorado Springs, Colorado. According to the seekfind.org website, the search engine functions by “only indexing websites that are Biblically-based, theologically-sound, and in agreement with our statement of faith.
“That way, you can have confidence that you will find content which will be God-honoring and spiritually encouraging,” it says.
For the Jewish community, the niche is filled by another engine called Jewogle, which bears a passing resemblance to Google. Danny Sullivan, editor-in-chief of SearchEngineLand.com, said none of these website has “taken off and caught fire” but that “it doesn’t mean to say that they can’t be good, profitable businesses.” But he said some of the niche websites fail, like the African-American search engine called rushmoredrive, which was closed by its parent firm IAC in 2009.
“It was designed so that when you do a search you get sort of an African-American spin on the Web results that you got back. But that never took off.”
Michael Gartenberg, partner at technology research firm Altimer Group, told National Public Radio that some of these niche groups are bringing more users to the Internet.
“You have an emerging generation and emerging culture that wants to take advantage of technology… search engines and the things that they provide but at the same point, be true to their heritage… and not stray from their belief system,” he says.

Difficult To Escape, Abusive Satanic Cults Exist In The Shadows Of Society
It’s the stuff of insipid Hollywood films: cults in which Satan worshippers drink the blood of animals and make human sacrifices during special ceremonies.
But for Laura, who was born into such a world in the Muenster region in western Germany, it’s a bit closer to reality. She’s managed to escape the cult, but it was a long, painful process.
“My father was well respected in the sect and he started training me at a young age to do what the circle wanted,” she explained. “That I allow everything to be done with me, that I wouldn’t cry or scream or respond to the pain, and that I would not say anything to anyone outside the group. We were supposed to do what the higher power wanted.”
Prostitution in the name of Satan
For Laura, the higher power used to be Satan, and she said she was forced to accept pain, torture and rape in his name. But it also meant that she had to lead to parallel life. To the outside world, she presented herself as a normal schoolgirl; in the other, secret world, she was a servant at black masses and Satanic rituals.
“I was expected to be completely obedient to men,” she said. “When I was supposed to prostitute myself, then I was told that the higher power wanted the circle to have money.”
The money went straight into the group’s coffers, and it was the group who chose the clients. Marburg-based religion expert Adelheid Herrmann-Pfandt said Laura’s parents exposed her to a Satanic cult that is particularly worrying – one that celebrates an especially brutal form of Satanism and keeps itself out of the public’s eye.
“Those who conduct these really extreme practices are not recognizable in society,” Herrmann-Pfandt said. “They don’t go running around with upside-down crucifixes in their hands. They want to stay under the radar their entire lives.”
Babies are said to disappear
Brigitte Hahn, the sect commissioner for the Catholic Diocese of Muenster, agreed. She said 30 victims of such Satanic cults have sought help from her office. Some of the women described black masses, which also included ritualistic abortions and even murder. The women say they are impregnated during special ceremonies,” Hahn said. “Then there are rituals for delivering the babies and sacrificing them. The pregnancies are kept secret, the babies are born but disappear.”
In 2008, Hahn sent around a survey to 2,000 doctors and therapists in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, of which Muenster is a part. Some 120 responded saying they had female patients who had suffered violence in Satanic groups. Alfons Strodt, capitular in the Catholic Diocese of Osnabrueck, has helped former members of Satanic cults for years. He has collected drawings they have created of the rituals – images of children lying on an altar, or bound on a cross.
“In the beginning, I had to process all of this alone,” he said, adding that it took a long time until others in the Church started believing him. “People would tell me to stop making up such stories.
“I’m grateful that our bishop and the vicar-general now believe me and realize that it is an issue that can no longer be kept under wraps,” he said. “Now, the victims can get some of the help they need.”
Constant state of fear
However, because many of the victims are traumatized and mentally ill, it is hard to determine whether their accounts truly reflect reality. Offering support to the victims is also challenging, Strodt said.
“There were threats that our churches would be blown up with bombs, or set on fire,” Strodt said. “I was under surveillance. That takes its toll – the feeling that they are always nearby is scary.”
But people cannot remain silent about the phenomenon of Satanism, said religion expert Herrmann-Pfandt, who investigates what occurs such groups.
“It’s really about transcendental experiences – and blood often plays a major role,” she said. “Some people say it intensifies the experience, and it seems to put them in a state of arousal. And the cults play on that.”
Laura said the turning point came when she was supposed to have a child for her parents’ Satanic circle. She escaped the cult then and now lives in a high-security shelter for traumatized women. Though she has not pressed charges against her parents, she has left records of her experiences with a lawyer.
“In the event of my death, even if it appears to be an accident or suicide, all of the data will be sent to the district attorney’s office,” she said. “It’s my form of life insurance – so they don’t feel they can try to do something to me or try to kill me.”

Pakistan Flood Assessments Reveal ‘Bleak’ Picture, Huge Needs
The picture that Christian relief groups have been painting of southern Pakistan following the region’s massive flooding has been bleak with at least one describing the needs there as “huge.”
“People are in urgent need of almost everything: shelter, health clinics, clean water, sanitation and livelihood support,” reported Mike Bailey, World Vision’s regional manager for advocacy. “And that’s just what we gleaned from the areas we can reach. Flooding and the damage it has left behind mean there are areas we want to help that we still can’t reach.”
In its most recent report, World Vision said assessments conducted over the last few days near the towns of Muzaffar Garh and Kot Addo in Punjab as well as Sukkur in the Sindh Province reveal the situations there to be dire.
The aid agency also said contaminated water, cramped living conditions and a lack of sanitation are contributing to a rapid increase in cases of diarrhea and skin diseases in children.
In a survey of households in Punjab, World Vision found that the main health problems for children include coughs (32 percent), stomach and intestinal infections (30 percent), and skin infections (14%). For older children, the primary problems are coughs (25 percent), skin infections (25 percent), and stomach and intestinal infections (18 percent).
“In conditions like these, something as simple as a cough can turn into a deadly case of pneumonia; a lack of clean water is likely to result in diarrhea for a small child,” said Bailey.
“The fact is that many of these families may not be able to return home for at least three months, if not longer. Lack of adequate shelter, combined with an extreme shortage of health care and medicine, is making this disaster that much worse,” he added.
According to the United Nations, there are approximately 4.6 million people without shelter as a result of the floods, which were brought on by heavy monsoon rains. Thousands of people are on the move within the country, either to seek shelter with relatives and friends or returning to assess damages to their homes and property.
And even for those affected families who have some form of shelter – in most cases tents or partially damaged homes – the living conditions are “terrible,” reported the ACT Alliance.
Prolonged stay under these circumstances poses health and other risks that could lead to a second wave of deaths, added the alliance of church groups and related agencies in its latest report.
Earlier this week, the World Evangelical Alliance issued an appeal to the global Christian community to give generously, financially as well as in prayer.
“This ‘creeping tsunami’ impacting the lives of millions of people in Pakistan must be met with a robust response from the Christian community worldwide,” commented WEA International Director Dr. Geoff Tunnicliffe.
“The vast suffering in Pakistan is, for most of us, unimaginable,” added WEA Associate International Director Gordon Showell-Rogers. “International support is desperately needed.”
According to reports, local charities, the Pakistani army and international agencies are providing food, water, medicine and shelter to the displaced, but millions have received little or no help.
Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari, on Monday, said recovering from the devastating floods still battering Pakistan will take at least three years. The U.N. estimates that more than 17 million people have been affected by the floods, which resulted in around 1,600 deaths.
Christian relief agencies currently working on the ground in Pakistan include World Vision International, Tearfund International, The Salvation Army International, Medical Assistance Program International, and Christian Reformed World Relief Committee, among others.

Anglican Head Reprimands US Church Over Lesbian Bishop
The Anglican spiritual leader has broken his silence regarding the controversial ordination of another openly homosexual bishop in the US.
In a Pentecost letter released by the Anglican Communion News Service on Friday, the Archbishop of Canterbury proposed that The Episcopal Church play a lesser role in certain dialogues. He stopped short of asking the US body to leave.
“We are at a point in our common life where broken communications and fragile relationships have created a very mistrustful climate,” said Dr Rowan Williams in his letter to the 77 million-member communion.
“To maintain outward unity at a formal level while we are convinced that the divisions are not only deep but damaging to our local mission is not a good thing,” he acknowledged.
“Neither is it a good thing to break away from each other so dramatically that we no longer see Christ in each other and risk trying to create a church of the ‘perfect’ – people like us.”
Tensions are high within the Anglican Communion following the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles’ consecration of a partnered lesbian, Mary Glasspool, despite calls by the rest of the global body against such actions. Conservative Anglicans have expressed frustration at The Episcopal Church’s continued defiance of Scripture and the Anglican Communion.
While some have said a split is imminent in the world’s third largest Christian body, Dr Williams has worked to keep the communion together.
“[W]e are called to seek for mutual harmony and common purpose, and not to lose heart,” he wrote in the letter. “If the truth of Christ is indeed ultimately one as we all believe, there should be a path of mutual respect and thankfulness that will hold us in union and help us grow in that truth.”
He noted that even amid division over doctrine or discipline, Anglicans across the world have expressed the desire to work together to care for the poor and vulnerable and for mission. He maintained, however, something had to be done about The Episcopal Church’s decisions to defy the requests of the larger global body.
“[W]e cannot pretend there is no problem,” he said.
“There are still things being done that the representative bodies of the Communion have repeatedly pleaded should not be done; and this leads to recrimination, confusion and bitterness all round. It is clear that the official bodies of The Episcopal Church have felt in conscience that they cannot go along with what has been asked of them by others, and the consecration of Canon Mary Glasspool on May 15 has been a clear sign of this.”
He proposed that a province that breaches any of the moratoria – including consecrations of bishops living in same-sex relationships – that were agreed to since 2004, should not participate in the ecumenical dialogues in which the Anglican Communion is formally engaged.
“In our dealings with other Christian communions, we do not seek to deny our diversity; but there is an obvious problem in putting forward representatives of the Communion who are consciously at odds with what the Communion has formally requested or stipulated,” he explained. “This does not seem fair to them or to our partners. He also proposed that such provinces should not have any decision-making powers on the Inter-Anglican Standing Commission on Unity, Faith and Order – a body that examines issues of doctrine and authority – but just participate as consultants.
Glasspool’s consecration this month came seven years after The Episcopal Church widened rifts when it ordained its first openly gay bishop, V Gene Robinson of New Hampshire. The Anglican Communion currently rejects homosexual practice as incompatible with Scripture.

English Preacher Jailed For Calling Homosexuality A Sin
Dale McAlpine was charged with causing “harassment, alarm or distress” after a homosexual police community support officer (PCSO) overheard him reciting a number of “sins” referred to in the Bible, including blasphemy, drunkenness and same sex relationships.
The 42-year-old Baptist, who has preached Christianity in Workington, Cumbria for years, said he did not mention homosexuality while delivering a sermon from the top of a stepladder, but admitted telling a passing shopper that he believed it went against the word of God. Police officers are alleging that he made the remark in a voice loud enough to be overheard by others and have charged him with using abusive or insulting language, contrary to the Public Order Act.
Mr McAlpine, who was taken to the police station in the back of a marked van and locked in a cell for seven hours on April 20, said the incident was among the worst experiences of his life.
“I felt deeply shocked and humiliated that I had been arrested in my own town and treated like a common criminal in front of people I know,” he said.
“My freedom was taken away on the hearsay of someone who disliked what I said, and I was charged under a law that doesn’t apply.”
Christian campaigners have expressed alarm that the Public Order Act, introduced in 1986 to tackle violent rioters and football hooligans, is being used to curb religious free speech. Sam Webster, a solicitor-advocate for the Christian Institute, which is supporting Mr McAlpine, said it is not a crime to express the belief that homosexual conduct is a sin.
“The police have a duty to maintain public order but they also have a duty to defend the lawful free speech of citizens,” he said.
“Case law has ruled that the orthodox Christian belief that homosexual conduct is sinful is a belief worthy of respect in a democratic society.”
Mr McAlpine was handing out leaflets explaining the Ten Commandments or offering a “ticket to heaven” with a church colleague on April 20, when a woman came up and engaged him in a debate about his faith. During the exchange, he says he quietly listed homosexuality among a number of sins referred to in 1 Corinthians, including blasphemy, fornication, adultery and drunkenness.
After the woman walked away, she was approached by a PCSO who spoke with her briefly and then walked over to Mr McAlpine and told him a complaint had been made, and that he could be arrested for using racist or homophobic language.
The street preacher said he told the PCSO: “I am not homophobic but sometimes I do say that the Bible says homosexuality is a crime against the Creator”.
He claims that the PCSO then said he was homosexual and identified himself as the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender liaison officer for Cumbria police. Mr McAlpine replied: “It’s still a sin.”
The preacher then began a 20 minute sermon, in which he says he mentioned drunkenness and adultery, but not homosexuality. Three regular uniformed police officers arrived during the address, arrested Mr McAlpine and put him in the back of a police van. At the station, he was told to empty his pockets and his mobile telephone, belt and shoes were confiscated. Police took fingerprints, a palm print, a retina scan and a DNA swab.
He was later interviewed, charged under Sections 5 (1) and (6) of the Public Order Act and released on bail on the condition that he did not preach in public.
Mr McAlpine pleaded not guilty at a preliminary hearing on Friday at Wokingham magistrates court and is now awaiting a trial date. The Public Order Act, which outlaws the unreasonable use of abusive language likely to cause distress, has been used to arrest religious people in a number of similar cases.
Harry Hammond, a pensioner, was convicted under Section 5 of the Act in 2002 for holding up a sign saying “Stop immorality. Stop Homosexuality. Stop Lesbianism. Jesus is Lord” while preaching in Bournemouth.
Stephen Green, a Christian campaigner, was arrested and charged in 2006 for handing out religious leaflets at a Gay Pride festival in Cardiff. The case against him was later dropped.
Cumbria police said last night that no one was available to comment on Mr McAlpine’s case.

Is Lucifer The God Of Judaism?
In 1976, Walter White, Jr., “a concerned patriot,” conducted an interview with a young Jew named Harold Rosenthal who was the assistant to Sen. Javits of New York.
In the interview, later published as “The Hidden Tyranny”, the arrogant Rosenthal belligerently boasts (on tape) that the Jewish people have fabricated certain “falsehoods which work to conceal their nature and protect their status and power.”
Rosenthal debunks the commonly accepted lie that, “the Jews are Israelites, and thus God’s chosen people”.
Rosenthal said in part: ‘Most Jews do not like to admit it, but our god is Lucifer — so I wasn’t lying — and we are his chosen people. Lucifer is very much alive.'” (www.macquirelatory.com/Wallace Interview 1967.htm)
Lucifer’s goal is to “be like the most High” (Isa 14:14) and to usurp the worship of God (Mat 4:9).
Lucifer’s purpose is to deceive the whole world (Rev 12:9) by transforming himself into an angel of light (2Co 11:4). This is best exemplified by the Freemasons. Their motto of “making good men better” produces a far more favorable public image than the more accurate alternative: “how to become demon-possessed in 33-easy-steps.” The Jewish and Masonic religions both worship the same god.
In most Jewish synagogues, a bright burning flame represents their god. The Hebrew word for Lucifer is “Hillel” (Strong’s Concordance #H1966) meaning “bright light.” Curiously, this is the name chosen for the Jewish student organization. The Jewish six-pointed star is the highest symbol in the occult and goes under various names–the Star of Moloch/Saturn/Remphan. The Hebrew symbol חי worn around the necks of many Jews ostensibly symbolizes “life” (lachaim). The word literally translates to a “living thing” or “beast” (H2416); this symbol is an idol for The Beast.
The Jewish name for god is represented by the tetragrammaton יהוה (YHVH) translated as Yahweh, or Jehovah. The significance of God’s name is repeatedly emphasized throughout the scriptures.
When dissected in the Hebrew, the true definition of Jehovah (Yah-Hovah) is revealed. “Yah” (#H3050) means “god”. “Hovah” (#H1942) translates to “eagerly coveting, falling, desire, ruin, calamity, iniquity, mischief, naughtiness, noisome, perverse, very wickedness.”
Jehovah is the god of wickedness, Satan.
However, Jews claim that this name (YHVH) is not to be spoken aloud, despite God’s command to declare His name throughout the earth (Exo 9:16).
UTTERING GOD’S NAME
Judaism very subtly corrupts otherwise good commandments by adopting a false practice. By this prohibition against uttering God’s name, the Jews subtly suggest they know god’s name and that it is secret knowledge that can only be had if you take up the Cabala. Masonry also uses this ploy to entice.
Christian churches teach Jewish doctrine which prevents God’s name from being known and/or glorified.
The Jews have plenty of other names for Satan that they use openly. They are mostly titles that translate to Lord (which is what Baal means). All the major pagan gods’ names are names for Satan (see “The Two Babylons” by Hislop). Satan is the author of confusion and goes by many names. As long as you are praying to someone or something other than the true god AHAYAH, Satan has succeeded.
The name Yahweh is reserved for Cabalistic practice. Cabalism is a mystery religion not intended for the mainstream. The promise of secret knowledge is used as bait to get followers i.e. cult members who will pay money.
The mainstream Jews, like the mainstream Catholics, are left in the dark regarding the Satanism that goes on among their leaders behind closed doors. The name Yahweh is very prominent in Witchcraft and the name Jehovah is very prominent in Masonry and Catholicism, so if Yahweh or Jehovah was spoken by the Jews, it would openly attach them to these other groups. This might result in some serious questions from the Jews of the congregation.
The Black Magician and Satanist invokes demons by name. In the Satanic Bible, Anton LaVey provides an extensive list of “infernal names” that, when summoned, provide the practitioner with super human abilities namely intelligence, power, skills in manipulation, enhanced creativity, material wealth, and the satisfaction of diverse lusts.
Jewish prayers are conducted in Yiddish, a composite language far from the intended pronunciation of the original Hebrew (A.C. Hitchcock, “The Synagogue of Satan,” 1). The prayers in modern synagogues are nothing more than disguised demonic invocations. They are hypnotic spells, similar to the Enochian language of the Church of Satan. Jews are invoking demons named adonai, elohim, el shaddai, et al in their rituals.
Vain repetitions and head-bobbing during Jewish prayers aid the entrance into a trance state. Large numbers of atheistic Jews engage in the pseudo-religious worship of status and knowledge. As Bill Cooper writes, “The WORSHIP (a lot different from STUDY) of knowledge, science, or technology is Satanism in its purest form, and its god is Lucifer” (“Behold A Pale Horse,” 70). Judaism fills its members with the same Satanic powers as the Church of Satan and Freemasonry.
The foundation of Cabalism is identical to Satanism: the reversal of the roles of God and Satan. It is the pursuit of hidden (occult) knowledge which allows one to achieve god-like abilities by calling on the so-called names of god. These are the names of fallen angels/demons/spirit guides who are the gatekeepers to occult knowledge (Gen 6:4, Jubilees, Enoch). While not all Jews actively practice Cabala, they all accept the highest Cabalistic name as their god–Yahweh (Jehovah.)
The infamous Cabalist and Satanist Aleister Crowley writes, “There are thus 72 ‘Angels’…these [names] are derived from the “Great Name of God”…The “Name” is Tetragrammaton: I.H.V.H., commonly called Jehovah. He is the Supreme Lord of…the whole Universe (“The Book of Thoth,” 43).
“Of the 54 sacred names in the Jewish kabbalah, the primary one is YHWH” (R. Hathaway “Sacred Name of God? Or Blasphemy,” remnantradio.org/Archives/articles/sacred_name.htm).
The Jewish creed, the Shema, states: “our Lord is One,” so why do they invoke these other names?
The secret of the ancient Egyptians, and their modern disciples, the Freemasons, is the art of demonology for gaining power–mainly through the devil, Jehovah. In the Royal Arch degree, the Freemason ” acknowledge[s] that the devil, in the guise of Jahbuhlun, is his sacred Lord”–the name Jahbulun being a “composite of Jahweh, Baal, and Osiris.” He chants “Jah-buh-lun, Jah-buh-lun, Jah-buh-lun, Je-hov-ah” (Texe Marrs, Codex Magica, Ch. 4). Albert Pike discusses the Cabalistic/Masonic significance of IAHOVAH in great length in Morals & Dogma (66, 213, 401, 467, 519)
The name YHVH was injected into the text of the Old Testament by the Pharisees and others who practiced Babylonian Satanism (the precursor to Cabalism and Talmudism). An agreement was forged between the Jewish Masoretes and the Catholic Church c. 1000 A.D. to change the name of God in the Hebrew Old Testament to the pagan name Yahweh/Jehovah via the tetragrammaton (remnantradio.org/Archives/articles/sacred_name.htm).
This explains Rosenthal’s saying, “We are amazed by the Christians’ stupidity in receiving our teachings and propagating them as their own.”
In Henry Ford’s words, “The Christian cannot read his Bible except through Jewish spectacles, and, therefore, reads it wrong.” (“The International Jew,” Vol. IV, 238).
GOD’S REAL NAME
The demonic disdain for humanity exhibited by the Luciferian Jew, Harold Rosenthal, typifies the end result of a lethal amalgamation: Jewish religious ritual combined with the worship of knowledge and self. The Jews as a people, by rejecting God and/or accepting Jehovah, have been given over “to a reprobate mind…Being filled with all unrighteousness…” (Rom 1:28-31).
Of course, Mr. Rosenthal was a member of an elite, openly Satanic minority among the Jewish people. Everyday Jews do not know that the god of their faith is in fact Satan hiding behind a mystical name. It is of no consequence to Satan whether he is worshiped deliberately or through subtle lies and deceptions (Gen 3).
The wise Solomon asks, “what is [God’s] name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?” (Pro 30:4). God’s name is אהיה AHAYAH (I AM). This is the name given to Moses along with the Law. “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you…this is my memorial unto all generations.”(Ex 3:14-15). “I AM the Lord thy God…thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exo 32:4-5).

Royal Kushite Statues Found In Sudan
Huge granite statues of a pharaoh and other kings have been found in Sudan, a discovery that has shocked archaeologists at how far south the expansive Kushite empire extended, the dig directors remarked on Monday.
The Pharaoh Taharqa, mentioned in the Bible for saving Jerusalem from the Assyrians, was a Kushite from Sudan but ruled a wide empire through Egypt to the borders of Palestine. The southern borders remain unknown. The Kushite civilization survived from 9th century BC to the 4th century AD.
“This is the furthest south that we know of that a statue of Taharqa has ever been found.”
Anderson, assistant keeper in the Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan in the British Museum, said working in Sudan was “incredibly exciting” because so little had been excavated.“The world is discovering Sudan and its fantastic and exciting history,” she said, adding more digs were being planned in the future.

Druids A Day Early For Solstice
Pagan worshippers who braved freezing temperatures to celebrate the winter solstice at Stonehenge were dismayed to discover that they had turned up on the wrong day.
About 300 people dressed in robes met at the stone circle on Monday to greet the rising of the sun on the shortest day of the year. Unfortunately, their calculations were slightly out. They had arrived 24 hours early.
The winter solstice occurs when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is at its furthest from the sun, resulting in the fewest hours of sunlight of the year.
More often than not the solstice falls on December 21 but the exact time varies each year.
The 2009 solstice fell at precisely 5.47pm on Monday, meaning that, because the sun had already set, the official celebrations should have taken place at sunrise on Tuesday. Hundreds of enthusiastic worshippers, who had arrived at Stonehenge before dawn on Monday, went ahead and celebrated anyway.
English Heritage, which manages the ancient site in Wiltshire, opened the gates and welcomed the worshippers despite the miscalculation.
A spokesman for English Heritage said: ”About 300 people turned up a day early on Monday morning.
”We took pity on them and opened the stone circle so they could celebrate anyway. They were a day early but no doubt had a wonderful time.
”There has been a bitter chill there over the past few days but it has been absolutely gorgeous in terms of light and photography.
”People always assume that because the summer solstice is June 21, the winter solstice will be December 21.
”They should always check because it does change.”

Medieval fakery involved in making of Shroud
An Italian scientist, in managing to reproduce the Shroud of Turin, has declared the original article a fraud.
He has said his construction proves definitively that the original linen, bearing the human shadow that some Christians revere as Jesus Christ’s burial cloth, is a medieval fake.
The scientist, Luigi Garlaschelli, has said he has shown it is possible to reproduce an image which has the same characteristics as the Shroud.
Professor Garlaschelli, an organic chemist, reproduced the full-sized shroud using materials and techniques that were available in the middle ages.
To emulate the image of the original shroud, a linen sheet was placed flat over a volunteer before it was rubbed with a pigment containing traces of acid. The pigment was then artificially aged, leaving the cloth with a fuzzy image similar to that of the Shroud.
The Shroud of Turin shows the back and front of a bearded man with long hair, his arms crossed on his chest.
Carbon-dating tests in the past have shown the original dates back to around the 1300’s.
The Shroud is in the Guarini Chapel of the Turin cathedral.

Domonica Roman Catholic Church Bans Handshakes
The Roman Catholic Church has banned handshakes among its worshipers as a means of preventing the spread of the deadly influenza A (HINI) virus after Dominica recorded its first case last week.
Bishop of Roseau Gabriel Malzaire said that the church had adopted a number of measures with immediate effect to lessen physical contact between members of the public.
He said as a result, communion would only be distributed “on the spices of the consecrated bread” and that “during the sign of peace instead of shaking hands, kissing or embracing, you are encouraged to nod your head to the person to whom the sign of peace is given”.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the first global flu pandemic in 41 years after a dramatic increase in cases of the Influenza A (H1N1) virus, more commonly referred to as Swine Flu.
The Roman Catholic Church said it would also suspend other long standing traditions like drinking wine from the chalice and giving communion on the tongue. It said it was also praying for those suffering from the virus.
The WHO said that as of 15 June 2009, 76 countries have officially reported 35, 928 cases of influenza A(H1N1) infection, including 163 deaths.

Christain Worker Suspended For Saying He Did Not Believe In Same-Sex Marriage
A charity worker was suspended after telling a colleague about his Christian beliefs against homosexuality, it has emerged today.
David Booker, 44, was chatting about his faith with co-worker Fiona Vardy during a late shift at the hostel in Southampton, Hants on March 26.
He told her he was opposed to same-sex marriages and to homosexual clergy but denied being homophobic and said that he had homosexual friends.
The next evening, Mr Booker was suspended from his £19,000-a-year post as a hostel support worker with Society of St James where he has worked for the last four years.
His employers told him the action was taken for ‘events that happened last night’.
On March 30 he received a formal suspension notice which alleged that he ‘seriously breached’ the charity’s code of conduct ‘by promoting your religious views which contained discriminatory comments regarding a person’s sexual orientation…
‘The action has been taken to safeguard both residents and staff” at the Southampton Street hostel.
Mr Booker, 44, a born-again Christian from Southampton, turned to the Christian Legal Centre (CLC) which instructed human rights lawyer Paul Diamond to represent him.
Andrea Minichiello Williams, barrister and director of CLC, said: ‘Mr Booker has been suspended since March 27 for two weeks pending investigation.
‘No date has been set for the investigation and disciplinary hearing.
‘This case shows that in today’s politically correct, increasingly secularised society, even consenting reasonable discussion on religion between two employees is being twisted by employers to discriminate and silence the Christian voice and freedom of expression.’

Asserting “Rights” Or Undermining Hetrosexual Society?
Martyn Hall, a homosexual living with his civil partner Steven Preddy, has lodged an unprecedented county court claim for £5,000 in damages, alleging ‘direct discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation’ against the Christian hotel owners, Peter and Hazelmary Bull.
The claim is under the new Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2007, which made it unlawful to refuse a person goods or facilities on the grounds of their sexual orientation.
Martin Hall and Steven Preddy, from Bristol, booked a room at the Chymorvah Private Hotel in Marazion, Cornwall, in September 2008, but when they arrived at the location, they were told that only married heterosexual couples could stay in the same room.
The booking page of the hotel’s website explains: ‘Here at Chymorvah we have few rules but please note that out of a deep regard for marriage we prefer to let double accommodation to heterosexual married couples only’.
This policy has been in place since Mr and Mrs Bull took over the business in 1986, and is founded on their strong Christian faith. Mrs Bull, 62, said that even her brother and his girlfriend had to comply with the policy and stay in separate rooms when they decided to visit the hotel.
In August 2008, the hotel owners received a letter from Stonewall, the homosexual lobby group, saying it had received a complaint and warning the hotel it was breaking the ‘equality’ regulations. Within a short period of time, Mr Preddy rang to book a double room for two nights.
Mrs Bull, who answered the call, explained that she had wrongly assumed that the new guest would be staying with his wife before she accepted the booking. When Mr Preddy and Mr Hall arrived, they were told by the manager, Bernie Quinn, that the hotel could not honour the booking. The homosexual couple told him he was acting illegally before leaving and reporting the incident to police.
Commenting on the case, a spokesman for Stonewall said: ‘We look forward to the hotel changing its policy to reflect equality, the 21st Century and the law.’
However, Mrs Bull said: ‘I have had people clearly involved in affairs and under-age people who have tried to book in here for sex, and I have refused them the same as I refused these gentlemen because I won’t be a party to anything which is an affront to my faith under my roof.’
‘In 26 years we have never really had a problem with it. I have found people to be very good and understanding. They realise that they are pursuing one lifestyle while we are pursuing another.’
‘I suppose we knew there would be problems with the new law, but I can’t change my beliefs and faith because of that.’
Tom Ellis, solicitor for Mr and Mrs Bull, argues that the Equality Act infringes their human rights as Christians. He said: ‘Under the European Convention on Human Rights, people are able to hold a religious belief and manifest it in the way they act.’
There are a number of other hotels in the area and no unmarried heterosexual couple has had problems with the hotel’s policy.
The new proposed European Directive is rapidly in the process of going through the various stages of the European Parliament. This Anti-Discrimination Directive creates further threats to Christian liberty and builds a wide scope for interpretation to promote the homosexual lifestyle.

Suspended Over Christain Music
In a lawsuit filed earlier this month (February), a veteran group home counselor says she was suspended for exposing teenagers to Christian music.
A veteran group home counselor is suing a California children’s home that suspended her for exposing four teenagers to Christian music.
In the lawsuit filed on Feb. 13, Maureen Loya accused Orangewood Children’s Home of religious discrimination after she was given a six-week suspension for “exposing children to unapproved religious activities.”
According to the lawsuit, during the summer of 2006 Loya took four teenage girls on an approved outing to a 5K run and then to Huntington Beach. At the beach, the group encountered the Surfrider Foundation’s Celebrity Surf Jam, where they overheard Christian music for roughly 10 minutes while eating lunch.
After the field trip, the counselor, who had worked at Orangewood for 18 years, was summoned to a disciplinary meeting about the Christian music. Several months later, the incident was brought up again, and the counselor was suspended.
According to the Pacific Justice Institute, which is representing Loya along with attorneys John and Laurie Messerly Stewart, Moya is suing to recover financial losses from the suspension and to defend her constitutional rights.
“What happened to this counselor was insane and unjust,” said Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute. “Allowing teenagers to overhear a few minutes of Christian music while at the beach should not result in a six-week suspension.”
