By now everyone realizes that there is a “la cosa nostra” of ultra-powerful people (sometimes called the Illuminati) that control the vast majority of wealth in this world, beginning with the US and Europe. They have spoon-fed us American Idol, pro wrestling and other sports, reality TV, idiotic soap operas, and Dancing With the Stars while sneaking around behind our backs tampering with our voting rights, stealing elections, repealing sensible regulations designed to protect us, and enacting laws totally in favor of the rich – and all this occurred as the 1% shipped all our jobs overseas for pennies on the dollar. I know this to be true because it happened to me. There can be no question that their goal is the redistribution of wealth and consolidation of power to the 1% elite while squeezing the once proud middle class into the new working poor caste. You can already hear the screams of “class warfare!” The problem is we didn’t start the war, they did. The same ones screaming “class warfare” the loudest are the ones who are waging the war.

What About Marriage? [1st Corinthians 7, verses 1-9] Today as I continue to dissect the first book of Corinthians, but with words instead of sharp objects, I will begin chapter seven, which is quite probably the finest behavioral commentary about relations between the sexes in existence (with the possible exception of Ephesians chapters five and […]
The Ongoing Obscenity of Our War on Terrorism by Rev. Paul J. Bern The war in Afghanistan lasted more than 11 years as of this year. The original reason for the US military invasion was to hunt down and capture or kill Osama Bin Laden as the chief perpetrator of the 9/11 attacks. The reason […]
