What does it mean in this Day to be an Evangelical?

or what Society refers to as  … the White Evangelical?

In America, there is such a melting … you know … it hardly makes sense to use white or black, does it? We have so many variations on skin … does it really mean what it says to say White Evangelical?

 

But …  I am just a gnostic … what would I know? We have been silenced in so many ways————–yes?

    we get what you are saying, pres… but the honesty part … are you serious?

    what have you denied the public?

    The United Independent Party …

    In Massachusetts, like throughout America, politics has become more about power than anything else and about representing connected interests who play by a different set of rules than the rest of us.

    In many ways, the partisanship of our times is an illusion, which melts away when there is money to be made or a connected donor to serve. What we’re left with is a system that’s predictable, frustrating, and uninspiring.

    Because of this, voters are leaving the traditional parties in droves, hungry for something *new*.

    In Massachusetts, 53% of voters no longer identify with the Democrats or Republicans. Despite being the majority, independent voters still do not have any representation in the State House. 100% of the people elected to state office are either Democrats or Republicans.

    In a certain way of thinking, the system is working. The trouble is, it’s working to keep things pretty much as they are.

    We founded the United Independent Party because we were tired of hearing people say “there’s nothing anyone can do to change things.”

    Developing, supporting and electing authentic leaders

    In 2012, a group of like-minded people founded the United Independent Party. They weren’t political insiders; just people who wanted to build a better future by doing the hard work of creating it.

    From the beginning there were people who said it couldn’t be done, but we succeeded in taking the first, tough steps to get this movement started. Still, there’s much work to be done.

    We at the United Independent Party believe it’s time to replace elected officials – at all levels of government – who aren’t doing the people’s business. This will take smart, independent-minded candidates, as well as the people who support them.

    If you don’t think it’s possible to change the system, we are not for you. But if you believe that a motivated, determined and dedicated group of people is what it takes to make things happen – we welcome you.

    Membership Matters

    Massachusetts law gives huge advantages to candidates supported by official parties. If you want to change the system, there has to be a party to do it.

    This is where your membership matters.

    Under Massachusetts law, 43,000 people (1% of voters) must be enrolled in the United Independent Party by November 2016 for it to retain its official status. Joining the UIP means you’re playing an integral role in keeping this status and ensuring the UIP is a permanent part of the political landscape.

    Building a future that has real choices, authentic political debate, and meaningful change starts with your enrollment. It’s easy and takes just two minutes. Learn more at http://www.unitedindependent.org/enroll

    What makes us different?

    You may not agree with all of our positions and ideas – but you’ll know what they are, and why we hold those views.

    There are no big-money donors or connected groups driving our agenda – it’s based on confronting the reality of an issue, learning what experts and stakeholders believe are the best answers, and working to build consensus on the best solutions. It’s the kind of thing that rarely happens in politics, but we know that the same-old tired ideological debates aren’t the way to build the future.

    This is what the United Independent Party is all about.

    Our Vision: An Economy that Works

    The American Dream is about working hard and aspiring to a better standard of living than the generation before you. That dream has been slipping away, gobbled up by a relentlessly increasing cost of living that drains families’ wallets, and businesses’ ability to grow and prosper.

    Big, politically connected businesses have done well in this environment. Mortgage and student loan companies, health insurers and hospital systems, banks and pharmaceutical companies all have prospered under policies that undermine small businesses, families, and people trying to get by. The inequality plaguing our economy today is a natural result of government policy that favors these connected groups.

    “An Economy that Works” means knocking down the entrenched powers that have created a rigged version of the free market. Our program is to significantly reduce the cost of living and the cost of doing business. More money in every family’s pocket means more money to build a thriving, vibrant economy. Hard work should be enough to save, to buy a home, to pay for your kids to go to college, and to have a comfortable retirement.

    It’s how our economy used to work, and it can work that way again.

    Here’s how we will get there.

    Muhammad was married to thirteen women, including eleven at one time. He had sex with a 9-year-old girl and married his adopted son’s wife (after arranging a quick divorce). On top of that, Muhammad had a multitude of slave girls and concubines with whom he had sex …
    from an article based on info provided by Muslim sacred works.

    moore is missing the link

    he is defined by some very strong outreach but his inner pardon is placid
    igniting is the worth IN the Spirit …

    have you not seen it?

    it is a Love beyond all measure

    Then there was given me a measuring rod like a staff; and someone said, “Get up and measure the temple of God and the altar, and those who worship in it. 2″Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the nations; and they will tread under foot the holy city for forty-two months.…

    remember, the staff is the road to damascus … the wilderness … the desert … the mountain … to move it one must understand its steed

    one must be willing to fly without seeing the wings

    PEACE and Love

    I once asked, but why pray to mary … she cannot hear them where she is … and it was told to me in the smallest voice, like a wee child she spoke, almost hurt … “but they believe in her”

    a rosary is a wall … it holds nothing but sorrow … but SHE, even if seen through the eyes of a child is all they have that feels real … in the patriarchal maladies of a system that strangles gift … is not unaware and keeps them hoping … FAITH is not a missile … but a PAIR of wings

    • opheliart permalink

      look at Max Kolbe … he had a very childlike adoration of mary … but in the end, the realness of his mission … despite it being weak in the bleak well of a regime intent on murder and mayhem … his true soul emerged … he was a champion steed

      know your enemy … and you will know your cause

      • opheliart permalink

        to have the strength of an ox only to tread as if you have no purpose … is what?

        in this DAY … adoration of mary is not going to make it … do you see? that childish way must be put aside … the NEW man (humanity?) for the NEW “mary” is a more complex but dedicated and determining force … it WILL move mountains

    relating to the new statue in detroit …

    Dr. Zaius July 27, 2015 at 4:11 pm
    “Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil’s pawn. Alone among God’s primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother’s land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death”
    – Sacred Scroll 27, Verse 6

    hmm … never much cared for planet of the apes … but this idea that ‘man’ is a devil of sorts … well … hmm … 😮
