Catholic Church in Scotland defies Pope – No plans on changing the Lord’s Prayer

 

What’s next in the bible that troubles this Pope and its interpretation? Even more interesting is that it appears all hands are not on deck to accept his ‘infallibility.” Francis apparently is not done with the interpretation/translation of the bible.

How about his embracing the Muslim faith into the Seminaries and suggesting adding the Arabic language wouldn’t be a bad thing? A “theology of acceptance?” “Values diversity?” First the Bible:

Although Pope Francis has ordered a change in the Our Father prayer — a prayer given to the world by Jesus Christ — the Catholic Church in Scotland said it has no plans to accept the Pope’s  version of the prayer, and the Catholic Church in England and Wales also said it has no plans at this time to change the Our Father, although the issue will be studied.

The Lord’s Prayer, also called the Our Father (LatinPater Noster), is a venerated Christian prayer which, according to the New TestamentJesus taught as the way to pray:

Pray then in this way … (Matthew 6:9 NRSV)
When you pray, say … (Luke 11:2 NRSV)

Just call me old fashioned. For the most part, I for one prefer to leave it to the Catholics to deal with their Marxist Pope. But this caught my attention.

“The Catholic Church in Scotland has no plans to change the wording of the Our Father,” a spokesman for the church told Stv.tv in Scotland, as well as The Scottish Sun and Christian Today. “The translation of the prayers of the Mass into different languages, is a matter of the language groups concerned.”

In the prayer, the Pope ordered the phrase “lead us not into temptation” to be changed to “do not let us fall into temptation.”

Pope Francis reportedly was frustrated, stating that God the Father does not lead us into temptation, “He helps you to get up immediately.”

The change in the prayer was made official in late May and is now included in a new edition of the Italian Missal, the prayer book Catholics use at Mass.

Maybe I am just being picky these days, but if we are changing the interpretation of the bible, how about his adding the embracing of Islam into their Seminaries? Recall my earlier post: 

In Naples, Pope Francis calls for theological dialogue with Islam, Judaism

headline, perhaps, started my fuse today. The operative sentence?

“I would say that theology, particularly in this context, is called to be a theology of acceptance,” Pope Francis said.

I wonder how the Knights Templar would feel about all of this now?

Knights Templar

“Theology students should be educated in dialogue with Judaism and Islam to understand the common roots and differences of our religious identities, and thus contribute more effectively to building a society that values ​​diversity and fosters respect, brotherhood and peaceful coexistence,” Pope Francis said June 21 in front of Naples’ Jesuit-run pontifical Catholic university.

“With Muslims we are called to dialogue to build the future of our societies and our cities; we are called to consider them partners to build a peaceful coexistence, even when there are shocking episodes by fanatical groups, who are enemies of dialogue, like the tragedy of last Easter in Sri Lanka,” he said.

“The multicultural and multi-religious reality of the new Mediterranean is formed … in the dialogue that comes from listening to the people and texts of the great monotheistic religions, and especially in listening to young people,” Francis said.

“The multicultural and multi-religious reality of the new Mediterranean is formed … in the dialogue that comes from listening to the people and texts of the great monotheistic religions, and especially in listening to young people,” Francis said.

“In theological faculties and ecclesiastical universities, courses in Arabic and Hebrew language and culture are to be encouraged, as well as mutual understanding between Christian, Jewish and Muslim students,” he said.”

“I would say that theology, particularly in this context, is called to be a theology of acceptance,” Pope Francis said.

The pope’s message focused on theological study within pontifical universities as outlined in the apostolic constitution Veritatis Gaudium published in January 2018. Veritatis Gaudium stipulated new norms of governance and education for all institutions that issue ecclesiastical degrees.

Thats my screed for today. Other than that, all is well in the swamp and elsewhere.

John Kerry’s Iran family connection Foreign Minister Zarif targeted by Trump

 

Mnuchin said Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif would be targeted with US sanctions along with others. Now this is so sweet. Kerry’s BFF Zariff gets nailed.

Just who is Javad Zarif and his family ties with John Kerry?

John Kerry and daughter Vanessa Kerry Nahed

Kerry has been doing all he can to make sure his own idiotic Iranian deal stays in place by visiting the major principles. Meeting with Iranian Prime Minister.  I will get to that, but first some of the best from the past.

Kerry’s daughter Vanessa is married to an Iranian national and physician. His best man at the ceremony was the son of Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs. Zarif was Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations.

 

Let us look at this earlier post. Is Kerry being blackmailed with his Iranian family ties?

“I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family, and grateful for how they have enriched my life,” Kerry said in the official statement. Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

Anyone who has been around my blog knows I have been outraged that Iranian born Jarrett who still has friends in Iran has not been fully exposed for who she is, let us recall this information about Kerry, and his daughter’s husband’s family who happens to live in Iran. How in the world did Kerry even get a security clearance.

“But what if the regime simply decides to round up Nahed’s family members and torture them? Or sends its goons to visit them at home? Or exerts some form of more subtle pressure on them that gets no publicity, and then makes it known they want the United States to release Iranians jailed in the United States on terrorism charges or for attempting to procure weapons technology or military spare parts”?

Our patriot Kerry:

Kerry exposes Iranian family tie — and subjects family to blackmail

Secretary of State John Kerry exposed a secret that journalists and academics have been agonizing: the fact that his daughter has married an Iranian-American who has extensive family ties to Iran. Ed: You bet the agonizing was really deep – instead of reporting the facts, remaining complicit.

Trump’s sanctions were also imposed on eight senior commanders of Navy, Aerospace, and Ground Forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), the US Treasury Department said as well as Kerry’s friend Zariff

These commanders sit atop a bureaucracy that supervises the IRGC’s malicious regional activities, including its provocative ballistic missile program, harassment and sabotage of commercial vessels in international waters, and its destabilizing presence in Syria,” the department said in a statement.

Once more Kerry as the traitor he has always been. Doing all he can to make sure his own Iranian deal stays in place by visiting the major principles.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry is actively working to keep the Iran nuclear deal in place as U.S. weighs the future of the deal, according to a new report.

Kerry, who served as the nation’s top diplomat under former President Barack Obama, was an instrumental leader in the development of the 2015 Iran deal,

The Boston Globe reports Kerry met with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to examine how to preserve the deal.

Additionally, he has met and spoken with several European officials on the matter, including German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Not enough mayhem for today? I added an update video…

Senator Feinstein caught talking to Iran on unsecure IPhone

If we thought the latest kerfuffle over Kerry’s mixing into foreign policy regarding Iran recently was a Logan problem, add the concept of Feinstein walking around congress on an unsecured line talking on her IPhone to Iranian Prime Minister Zarif.

The same Zarif that Kerry is so involved with.

Democrat candidates can’t dream up enough to give away for a vote

Whatever it takes to get a vote. I recall the days when it was illegal to sell alcohol on election day in our State. It harkened back to the days when candidates would try and buy a vote with a drink.

We have Fauxcahontas giving the LGBT Community reparations, apparently Black reparations are not enough. Here

 
Biden? He says 22 Million illegals will become legal.

There was a time not so long ago when most Americans would think all of this totally absurd.

Here is the big one for the kiddies. This should bankrupt us.

Sunday Respite – Celebration of the Summer Solstice

 

This past week the wheel turned once more with the celebration of the Summer Solstice or Litha. It has been an important date since Neolithic times.

 

As we endured the darkest and longest night around December 21, we kept the vision of summer’s light and bliss in our hearts, and this too keeps hope alive. We understand the cyclical nature of all that lives and our dependence on the balance of light and darkness, life, and death. Midsummer is when all life is at its zenith. We honor life, ours and all that live. We bask in the light and enjoy its blessings, ever remembering the returning darkness is necessary for the cycle of life and death to remain in balance.

 

Midsummer, also known as St John’s Day, is the period of time centered upon the summer solstice, and more specifically the Northern European celebrations that accompany the actual solstice or take place on a day between June 19 and June 25 and the preceding evening. The exact dates vary between different cultures. The Christian Church designated June 24 as the feast day of the early Christian martyr St John the Baptist, and the observance of St John’s Day begins the evening before, known as St John’s Eve.

Not intended to promote religion, neither is it an educational video as it barely touches on the information and mythology of the Summer Solstice.

 

 

In EstoniaLatviaLithuania and Quebec (Canada), the traditional Midsummer day, June 24, is a public holiday. So it was formerly also in Sweden and Finland, but in these countries it was, in the 1950s, moved to the Friday and Saturday between June 19 and June 26, respectively.[5]

The solstice itself has remained a special moment of the annual cycle of the year since Neolithic times. (For Neolithic and Bronze Age astronomy, see Archaeoastronomy.)

In Sweden, Finland, Latvia and Estonia, Midsummer’s Eve is the greatest festival of the year, comparable only with Walpurgis NightChristmas Eve, and New Year’s Eve.

The seed of death in the midst of the peak of life. Hail to the dark side of the year, the portion of rest. Hail to the light side which has passed for another year. May we greet her at the Winter Solstice.

 

A Guide to Trump’s foreign business interests

 

If you are interested in what world-wide assets Trump holds, this may be of interest to you. Clearly the intent of the open Secrets post is to cast aspersions on Trump and it becomes clear. Setting that aside, I have wondered myself just what and where are Trump’s financial interests. Wander over for some decent maps:

Trump continued to hold more than $130 million in foreign assets in a revocable trust as his second year in office came to a close, according to OpenSecrets’ analysis of the president’s most recent annual personal financial disclosure released by the Office of Government Ethics last month.Trump’s business entanglements continue to leave him with positions, assets, trademarks and other business interests in more than 30 countries.

Here you can see what countries are spending the most on lobbying and influence in the United States. FARA map linked at below at Open secrets

 

When it comes to foreign properties, the Trump Organization often charges a licensing fee to put the Trump name on the building and in some cases agrees to manage the property in exchange for a cut of the profits. This business model allows Trump to put his name on as many hotels and golf courses as possible while mitigating risk.

 

Check out Trump’s foreign interests in the countries below:Argentina | Azerbaijan | Bermuda | Brazil | Canada | China | Dominican Republic | Georgia | India | Indonesia | Ireland | Israel | Mexico | Panama | Philippines | Qatar | Russia | Saudi Arabia | Scotland | South Korea | St. Martin | St. Vincent | Turkey | United Arab Emirates | Uruguay |

Texas gained almost nine Hispanics for every White last year

 

 

New census estimates show Texas’ Hispanic population growth continues to surpass white population growth, with Hispanics on pace to soon represent a plurality.

The 2016 United States presidential election in Texas was won by Republican Donald Trump by a 9% margin over Democrat Hillary Clinton. As we eye 2020 we would be wise to look at the changing demographics. By 2022 it is estimated that the plurality of the population will be Hispanics:

The gap between Texas’ Hispanic and white populations continued to narrow last year when the state gained almost nine Hispanic residents for every additional white resident.

With Hispanics expected to become the largest population group in Texas as soon as 2022, new population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau showed the Hispanic population climbed to nearly 11.4 million — an annual gain of 214,736 through July 2018 and an increase of 1.9 million since 2010.

The white population, meanwhile, grew by just 24,075 last year. Texas still has a bigger white population — up to 11.9 million last year — but it has only grown by roughly 484,000 since 2010. The white population’s growth has been so sluggish this decade that it barely surpassed total growth among Asian Texans, who make up a tiny share of the total population, in the same time period.

Soon to become a plurality, the Hispanic population in Texas has grown massively since 2010. Meanwhile, the white population is barely staying ahead of the Asian population in growth.

Race 2010 population 2018 population estimate Increase
Hispanic 9,460,921 11,368,849 1,907,928
Black 2,899,884 3,441,644 541,760
White 11,428,638 11,912,849 484,211
Asian 960,543 1,433,736

Denver City Council winner promised to usher in Communism ‘by any means necessary’

 

Newly elected far far-left Denver City Council member Candi CdeBaca has stated that she is “excited to usher” in communism “by any means necessary.” She was elected in a run-off. Congratulations Denver. We have been tip toeing around the topic with euphemisms.

euphemism is a polite expression used in place of words or phrases that might otherwise be considered harsh or unpleasant.

Social Democrats such as the likes of Bernie Sanders is a euphemism that comes to mind. AOCortex comes to mind as well.

“Any means necessary?” Try the slaughter of tens of millions of people. Thats sounds like a phrase wouldn’t you say?

In the end, it is Communism that they all wish for and they have been working at it for decades to bring it to our shores. Indoctrinating our young.

 

 

I don’t believe our current economic system actually works. Um, capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, something has to be exploited, that’s land, labor or resources.

And I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new. And I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources, and distribution of those resources.
