Kim Davis Should Render to Caesar What Is Caesar’s

Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis would do more for the Gospel by stepping down rather than continuing her legal fight to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples. As a New York-based, media-centric individual who has been ensconced in this faith world for over forty years, I understand the Evangelical mind-set all too well that drove […]

The Deceived Honor Pope Francis

Excellent post at Soul Refuge.  Quote, The person whom the Roman  Catholic church declares to be the “Vicar of Christ on Earth” has arrived in the United States of America. I just happened to catch a  live video of the Pope’s arrival at the airport, and the screaming reminded me of the reception that the Beatles got when […]

Scott Walker: Would bomb Iran on his first day as president

Interesting, frightening, article. Who are these US citizens who support this? There must be quite a number for this warmonger to be running third in the polls. Huffington Post: Netanyahu and His Marionettes Benjamin Netanyahu is laying siege to the Congress of the United States, not for the first time. He has thrown his voice and […]

Burning of Christian churches in Israel justified, far-Right Jewish leader says

HT to Steve Lumbley (Apostasy Watch) The leader of a far-Right Israeli group has risked arrest by apparently voicing support for arson attacks on Christian churches amid an official crackdown on Jewish extremism. Benzi Gopstein, the outspoken head of Lehava – which has drawn notoriety for its violent assaults on Jewish-Arab assimilation – made the […]

Might find this interesting….

Inside each blog dashboard is a section which tells you the most searched for topics by people Googling. Last evening I noticed what the most searched topic was and was shocked. This is what topic Christians are looking for information on: prayer for money, prayer for money miracle, money angels, prayer to angel of god […]

The Remnant

Thinking of the remnant this evening, wondering if they are experiencing many of the same emotions I have been experiencing for many months. The Spirit led me to Ezekiel chapter 9: 1-4 Then I heard him call out in a loud voice, “Bring near those who are appointed to execute judgment on the city, each […]


I want to apologize to those who have had comments waiting to be posted. I was hospitalized for awhile, but am home now (yahoo!). Though still weak I hope to get back to blogging soon. God bless you all! Jaunita (PJ)

Academics call on State Dept to revise its definition of anti-Semitism, respect criticism of Israel as protected speech

Its about time. This has gotten so out of hand it has become ridiculous. The term itself, anti-semitism, has lost all meaning. If someone questioned you as to the meaning of the term, what would be your answer? From Mondoweiss May 18, 2015–An open letter signed by over 250 members of the Jewish Voice for […]

I Don’t Regret a Mile

Heard this a few days ago. It was the first time I’d heard it in many years and haven’t been able to get it out of my mind. I have many regrets folks….but all the years of miles I’ve walked with the Lord (35 now) is not one of them. Only wish I had come […]

New Poll: Almost half of all Americans would support Israel even if its interests diverge from those of The United States

This latest poll/article doesn’t surprise me in the least, for we see it within our own Congress and Senate. Plus I have never forgotten Evangelical author and teacher Kay Arthur’s statement from yrs back, in which she said her loyalty was and will always be with Israel over that of the United States.  Still yet, […]

Caught Between ISIS And Assad, A Palestinian Refugee Camp Is Starving To Death

As the Islamic State has seized most of the largest Palestinian refugee camp in Syria and trapped about 18,000 civilians, those who were lucky enough to escape have told of the ISIS atrocities they witnessed and one even described the barbaric nature in which militants used a person’s decapitated head. As ISIS militants descended on […]

Israel chooses the path to apartheid

Good article at Haaretz I must add last weeks Israeli election opened my eyes. For years my belief (noted by the many posts I’ve put up over those years) was the problem in Israel was their government, their leaders. After last week I now realize while that may be true, it’s only true in part: […]

Iran’s Khamenei: GOP letter points to U.S. ‘disintegration

Never thought I’d be publicly agreeing with (the) Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, but in this instance I believe he is correct. The two fiascos (alone) we have witnessed in Washington DC the past couple weeks prove his point.  ‘Isn’t this the ultimate degree of the collapse of political ethics and the U.S. system’s internal disintegration?’ the Iranian […]

UN Report Reveals Israel is Coordinating with ISIS Militants Inside Syria

There is much we poor ignorant American citizens are not in the ‘know’ about. Frankly I’m somewhat glad to be kept in the dark….ignorance can indeed be bliss when the alternative is the realization the world and world’s leaders are insane. This news item is one example. This story has been completely blacked out in […]

Fifth child dies from exposure to freezing temperatures in war-torn Gaza

Another tragic death of a child from the results of last summer’s “conflict”. This in the face of the US congress threats to cut off any further aid to these suffering people in retaliation for Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas signing the treaty to join the ICC (International Criminal Court).   Just a personal observation: When, and […]

Netanyahu crashes Paris unity march, French gov’t fumes

Been reading various news accounts of this story since last night, and I STILL get embarrassed every time I read a new account. French President Francois Hollande personally asked Netanyahu to not come to France to participate in this march, and the guy ignores the request and comes anyway. If you read this news item […]

The Senseless Death of one Person is no more Important then that of Another

Just musing today… One senseless death is one too many. This post is a reminder of another truth: the senseless death of one person is no more important then that of another person. What occurred in Paris is terrible, a tragedy, and required it be reported as such….but what occurred this week in Nigeria is just […]

Lindsey Graham to Netanyahu “I’m here to tell you, Mr. Prime Minister, that the Congress will follow your lead”

This latest news article should deeply concern every citizen of the United States of America. As I commented at the source: quote; “I’m here to tell you, Mr. Prime Minister, that the Congress will follow your lead,” Graham said. That statement should not only enrage every US citizen, but frighten the bejeebers out of you. […]

How much of our foreign policy is a subchapter of our Israel policy?

Question asked and answered in this revealing article at Mondoweiss: In the last week, two conversations on television suggest that the idea that the Iraq war was undertaken because of concern for Israel’s security is now conventional wisdom among the chattering classes….. See: Hillary Clinton’s decision to support Iraq war was driven by Israel concern, Chris […]


Interesting article and bio’s. No other end-of-year list can hope to offer such profound juxtapositions: a groundbreaking female Mennonite pastor alongside an “immortalist” con man; the transcendent wisdom of a civil rights leader alongside one of the most hate-filled religious figures in contemporary memory. But here it is, a connect-the-dots portrait of a powerfully complicated American religious landscape, circa 2014. […]

Oops, the 51st State is “Offended”

No surprise here, unless you’re not aware the 51st State of America “must” be in on the know of every step the American President makes: Every breath you take And every move you make Every bond you break, every step you take I’ll be watching you Quote, ‘Offended’ Israel not to support publicly the US-Cuba […]


Wish I could say this headline shocks me, but it doesn’t.  Religion Dispatches A new Washington Post/ABC News poll finds that Americans, by a 59-31% margin, believe that CIA “treatment of suspected terrorists” in detention was justified. A plurality deemed that “treatment” to be “torture,” by a 49-38% margin. Remarkably, the gap between torture supporters and opponents widens […]

Dick Cheney: “Torturers ‘Should Be Praised”

I’ve believed for years this guy is one “sick psychotic pup”. There is something seriously unbalanced about the man. And to think he was at one time, one step away from being President of the United States. (shivers) Says the former vice president: “I’m perfectly comfortable that they should be praised, they should be decorated,” the […]


Peter Laarman,  a United Church of Christ minister, expresses some personal thoughts concerning the recently released ‘torture report’ and sadly, the reactions of many of our elected political representatives.  quote, The U.S. has been publicly, globally, shamed in consequence of the gut-wrenching disclosures in the Torture Report. And, oh my, how we dreaded this day […]

When you can’t tell the players without a scorecard

Who’s worse;…the gay man or the two hate-filled dudes claiming to be followers of Christ?  quote, Responding to a book written by an author documenting his struggles as a gay Christian, a Baptist minister wrote the author an email saying “I pray that you will commit suicide.” Pastor Logan Robertson of the West-city Bible Baptist […]

Pat Robertson speaks (again) and the Church Shudders

While I don’t think Pat Robertson is an evil man, he is certainly one of the most ignorant. How in ‘blue-blazes’ can such a well known representative of Christianity defend torture of any type! This old man needs to retire and get out of the public spotlight. He is a hindrance to the faith…. RightWingWatch  […]
