Let me note, however, that the satanic pro-abortion/homosexual coalition (identified and deplored in the Manhattan Declaration) is every bit as strong in Latin America as it is in North America and Europe.
True, its like you hear particulary from neo-con Republicans that Hispanics being Catholic means they are against gay marriage or abortion this isn’t always the case. Gay marriage is legal in Mexico City and might be legal in parts of Brazil. Brazil is known as sexually lax. A protestant who writes on the Vdare Website Allen Wall mentions that in Mexico adultery is more socally acceptable if the woman is not martied. Wall lived 10 years in Mexico teaching English. Now I know that probably adultery rates are high in the Us as well but in the US adultery is not seen as ok. Abortion is legal in Mexico City.

True, George unlike the European countries mention there have been several books written about the imprisonment of politcal opposation in Cuba as well as labor camps. Many on the left favor gay rights but Castro threw homosexuals into labor camps. Why the left things Cuba and Sweden are the same I don’t know.

A lot of the Orthodox foucs progarms are not just only feed the poor but they also have job training and interviewing and so forth to try to get people jobs or better jobs so they are less on assistance.

Nations like Germany and Sweden could learn a thing or two about parent’s rights from, of all places, Russia, which is one of the freest nations in which to homeschool.
“We have complete freedom of home education in Russia, in terms of legality,” Pavel Parfentiev, a family rights advocate in Russia, said.
“The Russian Federation is sort of a champion of human rights in this particular area, so of course I think it is a good example for both Germany and Sweden where home educators are persecuted,” he said.
Among the persecuted, German home-schooler Juergen Dudek has been taken to court every year for the past 10 years by the German Jugendamt, or Youth Office.
“The Youth Office, I used to call it the ‘Gestapo for the Young.’ As soon as they step in, as soon as they get hold of you, you’ve really got problems,” Dudek said.
German homeschooler Dirk Wunderlich and his wife have lost custody of their children, although they are still allowed to live with them. He also told CBN News he expects to be sent to jail, but said he will never stop homeschooling.
“But I’m not afraid of this. I’m only sad for my family. I will go (to jail) laughing. You can do what you want but my children will not go to school,” he said.

Because there is no emperor and functional Orthodox eccelsiology was long ago tied to the state and never freed. The Pope simply took over the state.
Secular governments in the West didn’t always take the pope’s view on things.

•Oil is under 1,750 square miles of central and southern California
•The oil, which is deeper beneath the surface than other reserves and hidden in pockets, can finally be reached thanks to developed technology
•Companies are quietly buying up mineral rights to the public land
•But it is also galvanising environmentalists who are fighting against the use of ‘fracking’ to extract the oil and fear damage to the fertile land

California has an estimated 15.4 billion barrels of crude oil beneath its fertile farmland – and now companies are scrambling to get their hands on it, putting the lush landscape in danger.
While the ‘Monterey Shale’ has long been believed to be under 1,750 square miles of central and southern California, technology is finally able to extract it, potentially sparking a huge oil boom.
But the oil could also prove a massive area of conflict between the oil companies and the state’s powerful environmental interests, as campaigners protest against the use of fracking to extract it.
There are also fears that the fertile landscape will be taken over by looming drills and oil sites, pushing out vineyards, endangering rare species and flattening the rolling hills.
Reserve: The Monterey Shale is believed to be under 1,750 sq miles of central and southern California
But amid the concerns, companies are staking their claim on the shale, quietly buying up mineral rights and carrying out tests across the state – all behind a veil of secrecy.
If companies can extract it, it will turn the state from the third biggest producer of oil to the first – as the Monterey Shale has four times as much oil as Texas, currently the biggest producer.

Companies have be unable to reach the oil before now because tectonic activity folded the rock and pushed oil into layered pockets that are expensive to reach.
The oil is also 6,000 to 15,000 feet beneath the surface, while in other areas, like Midway-Sunset in California, companies need only drill up to 2,000 feet.

GOING BOOM: AMERICA’S INCREASING OIL PRODUCTION
In December, Exxon Mobil Corp. predicted that the U.S. will become an oil exporter by 2025, due to an increase in production and energy efficiencies.
Texas is the top producer of crude oil and its on the increase; in September, the state’s crude-oil production reached two million barrels per day, while production in 2011 was 1.5 million barrels per day.
North Dakota produced 728,000 barrels of oil a day in September, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
California takes the third place for production, with 524,000 barrels of oil a day in September. Despite this central role in oil production, it has some of the highest gas prices in the nation.
Alaska is the fourth largest producer, with 502,000 barrels a day in September, and Oklahoma produced 250,000 barrels, putting it in fifth place, according to the EIA.

But technological advances have now made extracting the Monterey Shale more likely, the New York Times reported, and old and new companies are swooping in to stake a claim.
Mineral rights to public lands are being sold by the Bureau of Land Management and plots have soared from $2 an acre to more than a thousand dollars each.
The successful bidders have 10 years to develop a working oil well on the land or the lease expires, NBC News explained. The government receives 12.5 per cent of revenues from the oil.
‘It’s good for us,’ Gabe Garcia, an assistant field officer for the Bureau of Land Management, told NBC. ‘Last year we brought in $190 million.’
Companies have begun drilling holes northwest of Bakersfield to see if they hit the jackpot, keeping quiet about what, when and how they’re exploring – as well as what they find.
‘Our companies are not forthcoming on their business plans,’ said Tupper Hull from the Western States Petroleum Association, which represents companies including Occidental and Venoco. ‘These are pretty smart people, they’re pretty good at what they do. They’re pretty competitive out there.’
And while little has been revealed about the success of the searches, still they continue.
Destruction: A gas flare burns at a fracking site in rural Bradford County, Pennsylvania
‘There are billions of barrels of oil buried in the Monterey Shale, and as far as I know, nobody’s been able to find it yet,’ Neil Ormond, the president of Petroleum Land Management, told the Times.
‘But I think there’s going to be more people looking for it. You can’t let a few dry holes discourage the whole thing, because if you find oil, you make money.’
But as well as exciting oilmen, the Monterey Shale has also sprung environmentalists into action.
To extract the oil, companies would use hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, which is the drilling technique used in booms elsewhere – but campaigners deem unsafe for the environment.
The geological formation means the fracking will also have to be more intensive in the area, which is dangerous because of the various tectonic plates beneath California, environmentalists say.
Anger: Protestors hold signs against fracking – the method by which the oil is extracted – during a demo outside of the California Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters in Sacramento last year
While there is currently no legislation against fracking in California, the State Department of Conservation released a draft of fracking rules, starting the process to set regulations.
But not every large company is getting involved with the process; Chevron has drilled into the area but has ‘not been encouraged by the results’, it told NBC in a statement.
Others aren’t giving up just yet.
‘I don’t really know what the break point is for the companies,’ Tupper Hull, from the petroleum association, added. ‘That’s what our members are trying to figure out right now.’

Well, if you could developed the Central Vallley of Ca for oil and get rid of the farms. We import more food from foreign countries anyways, or the farmers moved to other states, some illlegal immirgants would have to go home. HIspanics might become less important.
It is environmentally better to produce oil locally than to import it shipped from the other side of the world by tanker.

Farmers selling MINERAL RIGHTS. Not the surface. The pumps are a nothing. I grew up in Bakersfield and they were everywhere. And caused NO problem. California is sinking. Kick old Jerry B in the backside and get this going. Stupid Stupid Stupid to do otherwise. But I’m sure Fearless Leader and the Feds will get in the way somehow. Kind of like the Keystone Pipeline?

I can guarantee that farmers all over So Cal are jumping for joy. They will simply sell their land at a great profit and will move to another state, where they can buy a much bigger farm and make more money in the future.. this is an economic game changer for farmers living on the edge…

Please explain to me how drilling for oil would damage the drinking water or food. There are many many things put in place to make sure the water table is never exposed to any oil or gas (they are drilling thousands of feet deeper than the drinking water to get to the shale) and the only way the farmland might be contaminated is if there were an oil spill which is incredibly rare in comparison to the number of wells that are safely drilled every day.

Read Jesus in the Talmud by Peter Schäfer. It shows how violently anti-Christian ancient Jewish writings were. The Talmud brags about the role played by Jews in having Christ crucified. When reading ancient Christian statements against the Jews it is important to remember the context. The Jews were violently anti-Christian and provoked the sort of response found in some of the writings of St. John Chrysostom. Never forget Hitler killed a lot more Orthodox Christians than he did Jews.
This is true but the Jews who were govern by Rome coluldn’t do themselves. The Jews played upon of not being a friend of Caesar since Pilate according to some studies was allied with Serjanus who fell out of favor with Tiberius. Pilate stated he washed his hands of it but not really. Anyway, an inscription to Tiberius from Pilate was found in 1963.
The Romans easily defeated the Jews in 63 B.C. because two brothers Aristbolius and Hyrcanius were fighting a civil war. Yes, the Jews were reponsible for their coming under Roman Rule by fighting each other.

Cruxfrication is a Roman punishment not Jewish and the Jews had to have the ok from Pilate. who was governor ,so Pilate was the most responsible. Some UFO accounts have people cut open by the aliens and then sewn up which some think is demonic.

Still, Benedict’s papacy saw the Latin church reverse important Catholic teachings from who killed Christ to the existence of aliens and Darwinian evolution. In regard to aliens, it’s not an innocuous claim. Since phenomena associated with aliens and UFOs often resemble demonic manifestations, how spiritually sound is it to tell the Catholic faithful that these aliens could be other life forms and not demons? You can draw your own conclusions regarding evolution. Well, there are some Catholics and mainly protestants that think some of the UFO activity is demonic since some people that go into the spacecraft are cut up. Some orthodox think this as well but most of the demonic literature on this issue I think is protestantt at least in the States. As for who killed Christ it was the Jewish leadership and the Romans. Darwin evolutioin is also except by Orthodox and as George states the Ecumenical Patriarchate takes a look of left view on things, Byzantine law didn’t punish abortion until the 60 day period for girls and the 80 period for boys, something I can across which explains the difference between orthodox on the issue and Catholics.

2. IT IS Our will that all the peoples who are ruled by the administration of Our Clemency shall practice that religion which the divine Peter the Apostle transmitted to the Romans, as the religion which he introduced makes clear even unto this day. It is evident that this is the religion that is followed by the Pontiff Damasus and by Peter, Bishop of Alexandria, a man of apostolic sanctity; that is, according to the apostolic discipline and the evangelic doctrine, we shall believe in the single Deity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, under the concept of equal majesty and of the Holy Trinity. This is the Theodosian Code, so in the lare 4th and early 5th the Bishop of Rome was first among Patriarchs, Constaninople didn’t hold that place. That doesn’t mean that I think the papacy as it is today is correct but I think the Theodosian Code shows the Patriach of Rome is first among the Patriarch from a hisotorical view, I may be wrong not an expert on theology. Pontiff the bridge builder also a term from the old pagan head Pontiff Maximus.

Nate, that’s so not true. Entitlement spending is more than cash-outlays. There’s SNAP, Headstart, Section 8 housing, free ER care, free childcare, Medicaid, etc., etc., etc. The US has an entitlement problem that dwarfs Greece’s to the tune of $70 trillion. California, which has 1/8th the population of the US does have 1/3 of all Welfare spending, a lot of it driven by rampant illegal immigration to be sure, but also by the native middle class voting themselves largesse from the state fisc

You know, it’s funny that you target Medicare. Medicare is more successful at keeping healthcare costs low than the private insurance companies. The public outlays may seem substantial but it pales in comparison to the hidden costs of the private system. Before you jump to the conclusion that Medicare is bankrupting healthcare, look at Florida which is building more hospitals and the medical establishment is actively courting people on Medicare. If we did away with the current crazy system and expanded Medicare, taxes would be higher but the overall cost to the taxpayer would be lower.

The weapon that destroyed the black family was Welfare. As Dr Ben Carson said in his recent speeches, his mother –an illiterate, single mother–refused to go on Welfare. She said the reason for her obsitanance is that she saw that whoever went on it never got off.
Well, granted they are people that have two low pay jobs to get ends meat but our politicans who would not penalized companies for hiring people here illegality expanded the number of people that juggle jobs but who have children that quality for lunch programs. Some people need to develop skills among blacks, low income whites and legal hispanics to try to avoid working but qualifying for welfare programs. Republicans like Marco Rubio have not address this problem in the Latin community.

t all depends on what you mean by myth. The first chapter of Genesis tells us that God created the world, but was never meant to be a scientific account of how He created it. The doctrine of the Orthodox Church is that God created the Heaven and Earth from nothing, not that He created the earth in 7 24 hour days a few thousand years ago Seraphim Rose may have been a holy man but was not educated in Orthodox theology. He wrote some things that are of value, but is highly overrated as an Orthodox theologian. One would do better to study the writings of recognized Orthodox theologians than those of a self-taught writer who may have developed a cult like following, but really lacked the background and education to act as an authority of the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Well, one doesn’t have to say its 6,000 years but there is a lot of pre-history that is similar to the Bible in the ancient near east texts, the flood is the most universal tale. There has been places and things mention in ancient pagan sources that verify things like the Iliad and Odyssey. not saying the Greek Gods exist but a lot ancient literature turns out to be true.
religious literature in the ancient world contains some truth.

Well, I found this interesting going thru the 100 largest cities in the US white poverty stats. The South doesn’t come any worst than the North or the midwest. Probably the worst were the two white states of Kentucky and West Virginia but many Southern large states whites range as low as 5.4 percent in Montrgremy Al or 3.8 in Plano Tx to usually 9 percent to 13 percent similar to a lot of Northen Cities. George would be surprise that California does low on the white poverty for cities like San Diego, Long Beach, and San Jose and Anaheim is only a little over 5 precent for whites. La is higher at over 11 percent for whites. New York City is 10.8 percent and Dayton Oh is one of the highest at 17 percent explaining the Republicans inability to get Oh for high poverty. The Republicans only won about two states that hav high white poverty because of the social issues and coal mining Kentucky and West Virginia but as I stated some of the mid west has the same problem as those two states.

She did that Reputation. Out of all the Byzantine Generals Belsarius was IMHO the most affective, and I felt sorry for him the most. I don’t know why? I don’t think it was just because of his wife. I don’t know I just did. Well, Justinian didn’t always give him full support and made Belsarius support the campaign in Italy from his wealth since Belsarius had a lot of weath and some was from booty. Maybe that why you feel sorry for him.

No thumbs down from me,sir! On the contrary…The problem is,I’m afraid,many of our Orthodox do think the Genesis account of creation is a myth.I highly recommend,”Genesis,Creation,and Early Man” by Fr.Seraphim Rose.
I don’t, there is more and more data that people prior to written language were more advanced than thought previously. There is a huge object on mr Ararat that has stone age tools, maybe 9,000 to 13,000 years ago. Prehistoric people in Germany seem to passed property down thru the father and the mother seems to be outside the tribal group. Some of these prehistoric farmers had tools buried with them while others didn’t which means wealth inequality is as old as the Bible mentions about mightly men of renown and the Tower of Babel tale which could be the early summerians.

Another thing this confirms what the Bible taught about early humans. The bible mentions about Eve being under her husband and modern archaeology of Neolithic socieites shows this is true on the above information on Prehistoric Germany. The Bible mentions about Cain getting a wife and a city founded by Cain and the archaeology of the German site shows married or partnerships between men and women and the women are from outside the tribal group. The Bible in Gensis seems to described a society of private property ownership and inequality since Cain and Abel brought their offerings to the Lord seperate and Noah built his large boat for himself and his family and others were not interested. Also, the mention of Giants and Mighty men refers to certain men that had authority or probably wealth over other men. The Bible in the early chapters is about Neolithic people except some metal work which might have developed in the late Stone age.

May 28, 2012 — Hereditary inequality began over 7,000 years ago in the early Neolithic era, with new evidence showing that farmers buried with tools had access to better land than those buried without.
•Land Use Survey
Fossils & Ruins
Science & Society
•Archaeological field survey
The research, carried out by archaeologists from the Universities of Bristol, Cardiff and Oxford, is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), May 28.
By studying more than 300 human skeletons from sites across central Europe, Professor Alex Bentley and an international team of colleagues funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council uncovered evidence of differential land access among the first Neolithic farmers — the earliest such evidence yet found.
Strontium isotope analysis of the skeletons, which provides indications of place of origin, indicated that men buried with distinctive Neolithic stone adzes (tools used for smoothing or carving wood) had less variable isotope signatures than men buried without adzes. This suggests those buried with adzes had access to closer — and probably better — land than those buried without.
Professor Bentley, Professor of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Bristol, said: “The men buried with adzes appear to have lived on food grown in areas of loess, the fertile and productive soil favoured by early farmers. This indicates they had consistent access to preferred farming areas.”
The strontium isotope analysis also revealed that early Neolithic women were more likely than men to have originated from areas outside those where their bodies were found. This is a strong indication of patrilocality, a male-centred kinship system where females move to reside in the location of the males when they marry.
This new evidence from the skeletons is consistent with other archaeological, genetic, anthropological and even linguistic evidence for patrilocality in Neolithic Europe. The results have implications for genetic modelling of how human populations expanded in the Neolithic, for which sex-biased mobility patterns and status differences are increasing seen as crucial.
Professor Bentley said: “Our results, along with archaeobotanical studies that indicate the earliest farmers of Neolithic Germany had a system of land tenure, suggest that the origins of differential access to land can be traced back to an early part of the Neolithic era, rather than only to later prehistory when inequality and intergenerational wealth transfers are more clearly evidenced in burials and material culture.
“It seems the Neolithic era introduced heritable property (land and livestock) into Europe and that wealth inequality got underway when this happened. After that, of course, there was no looking back: through the Bronze Age, Iron Age and Industrial era wealth inequality increased but the ‘seeds’ of inequality were sown way back in the Neolithic.”
Proof that no anicent society not communistic as Marx and Engel wrote in the 19th century. Marx and Engel also thought that women cold also do thinks that men could do such as fighting and so worh but in the communist utopia where is no war.

Police have launched a massive manhunt for an ex-cop who promised in a Facebook post to “bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty.” Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, is suspected of killing a couple in a parking lot this weekend, police announced yesterday. This morning he allegedly shot three cops, one fatally, in a pair of shootouts. In one, officers were chasing Dorner when he got out of his car and fired a rifle-like weapon at them, KTLA reports. In the other, he allegedly attacked two officers on routine patrol.
On Sunday, Dorner allegedly killed Cal State Fullerton assistant basketball coach Monica Quan and her fiancé. Quan was the daughter of Randy Quan, who represented Dorner in a 2009 disciplinary review that ended in Dorner’s dismissal, the LA Times explains. In a long Facebook post, Dorner accused Quan of representing him poorly. “I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours,” he said. He described his war on the department as “a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name.” In their hunt for Dorner, LA police have shot two people by mistake.

In the Iliad, Aeneas is a minor character, where he is twice saved from death by the gods as if for an as-yet unknown destiny. He is the leader of the Trojans’ Dardanian allies, as well as a third cousin and principal lieutenant of Hector, son of the Trojan king Priam. Aeneas’ mother Aphrodite frequently comes to his aid on the battlefield; he is a favorite of Apollo. Aphrodite and Apollo rescue Aeneas from combat with Diomedes of Argos, who nearly kills him, and carry him away to Pergamos for healing. Even Poseidon, who normally favors the Greeks, comes to Aeneas’ rescue after he falls under the assault of Achilles, noting that Aeneas, though from a junior branch of the royal family, is destined to become king of the Trojan people. He kills 28 people in the Trojan War, and his career during that war is retold by Roman historian Gaius Julius Hyginus (c. 64 BCE – CE 17) in his Fabulae.
The history of Aeneas is continued by Roman authors, building on different myths and histories. During Virgil’s time Aeneas was well-known and various versions of his adventures were circulating in Rome, including Roman Antiquities by Greek historian Dionysius of Halicarnassus (relying on Marcus Terentius Varro, Ab Urbe Condita by Livy (probably dependent on Quintus Fabius Pictor, fl. 200 BCE), and Gnaeus Pompeius Trogus (through an epitome by Justin). Likewise important in Virgil’s day was the account of Rome’s founding in Cato the Elder’s Origines. Aeneas is a guy from Asia minor and is the ancestor of the Romans is why is it hard for historians later on to not idenify the Rum as Roman. Romans had eastern inflluence from the beginning with traces of the tale of Aeneas. The Estruscians who many thought came from Asia Minor were a big early influence.
