Holier than Thou: Missionaries pray on Haiti victims like vultures

A Haitian point of view

Many of the Missionaries are culturally insensitive racists who don’t fit into the United States so regard Haiti as a spiritual sandbox in which to frolic. They see Haiti as “ground zero” of spiritual warfare because Haiti has voodoo. Brazil, Cuba, and other Latin American countries have similar religions. Yet, Haiti is the only one that is poor, black, and a stone’s throw from the United States.

What does he know about Vodoun? Does he realize Haitians would not have won their independence without it? Does he realize that people who practice voodoo also believe in God? Does he realize that voodoo is a spiritual lifeline to Africa – a way of holding onto one’s roots and saying that there is a part of one’s soul that is not European, not American, but African. But no, for this reader, to be saved one must be exactly like him.

Voodoo is the locus of the religion is Africa, the locus of this man’s religion is America. Perhaps Nebraksa, or wherever it is that the money flows from which pays for the scholarships, the meal a day, or whatever other benefit gets one to come to the Protestant churches. Note to readers: I have no problem with Protestant religions, but it is well established that Protestants tend to offer “things” while Catholics mainly offer the comfort of being a part of the majority although that dominance is being eroded. One key difference here – a person can be Catholic and Vodouisant at the same time while a person may not be Protestant and participate in Vodoun.

You can see how he uses a slash to equate Vodoun and Satan together. To him, the two are interchangeable. Someone has been watching way too many movies. Observe how he stereotypes the practitioners of Vodou who counter-protested as “witch doctors”.

He notes that Haitian have mostly nothing. Well, from a very material perspective he is correct. Haitians have very little. My Haitian counterparts, however, have their pride, their families, their faith, and though often frustrated by events out of their control, happiness. Nothing compared to a corvette though.

I was always amazed at how naïve foreigners could be about Haitians religious beliefs. The assumption of some missionaries was that atheism was rife in Haiti. I remember a missionary who stopped his car to ask me what I was doing as I was hiking along a road on the Plateau. I replied that I lived there and asked him what he was doing – he said he had come to “bring the word”. The word was already there, and Haitians are a religious folk. Perhaps they would be effective missionaries for the United States?

Missionaries, Instead of food or water, they are sending solar powered bibles!!!

ABC: As international aid agencies rush food, water and medicine to Haiti’s earthquake victims, a United States group is sending Bibles.

But these aren’t just any Bibles; they’re solar-powered audible Bibles that can broadcast scriptures in Haitian Creole to 300 people at a time.

The Faith Comes By Hearing organisation says its Bible, called the Proclaimer, delivers “digital quality” and is designed for “poor and illiterate people”.

It says 600 of the devices are already on their way to Haiti.

POOP BURGER: Japanese Researcher Creates Artificial Meat From Human Feces

Some hardcore carnivores have a hard time finding meat alternatives such as soy protein or tofu burgers to be palatable. But non-meat eaters may lose their appetite along with their carnivorous friends over this one – a meat alternative made from HUMAN EXCREMENT. Yep, you heard me correctly — Japanese scientist Mitsuyuki Ikeda has developed a “burger” made from soya, steak sauce essence, and protein extracted from human feces. Hit the break for a video explaining the process!

A document has surfaced detailing preparations for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s escape from Iran is causing quite a stir regarding the future of the Islamic regime.

On Wednesday, a letter, on the official stationary of the Islamic republic’s National Security Council, detailing the preparations being made to quickly smuggle Khamenei and other top aides out of Iran.

“We would like to inform you of the inspection, check-up and preparation of the aircraft, destination Russia, for the purpose of transporting the Supreme Leader, his esteemed family and various Iranian Revolutionary Guards officials should the commanding forces lose control,” the letter stated, stamped by Dr. Saeed Jalili, current secretary of the Supreme National Security Council and the country’s chief nuclear negotiator.

The letter was reminiscent of the Shah’s escape from Iran in 1979 following violent demonstrations to overthrow his government.

Reports from Iran indicate that the Supreme National Security Council has ordered a complete check-up of the jet which is on standby to fly Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei and his family to Russia should the situation in Iran spiral out of control. The order, to the Pasdaran Revolutionary Guard Corps, was dated on Sunday, 27 December. A fax containing the order was sent to Dutch-based Shahrzad News.

Iran Global website has exposed a document that discloses information on Khamenei and various authorities of the regime’s possible escape to Russia.

The document is on the National Security Agency of the Islamic regime’s letterhead addressed from the office of the High Assembly of the Islamic Republic’s National Security official [name is redacted] to an individual [name redacted] in the revolutionary guards. The letter is dated 6th of Dey (December 27th).

With respect, we would like to inform you of the inspection, check up and preparation of the aircraft, destination Russia, for the purpose of transporting the Supreme Leader ….

If Khamenei does depart the country, it would be reminiscent of an historic event in Iranian history: Jan. 16, 1979, when the Iranian Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi fled Iran following an increase in violent protests. The anniversary of that event is coming up soon.

Isaiah speaks of these times:

The Radak explains in this time will be revealed the ten tribes that were lost to us till now. The tribe of Menashah the son Of Josheph has already returned. This is the ” glory of Jacob”. But this glory will be thinned by the glory of the nation of  Ashur (Iran). Israel will feel rich for a moment from the gatherings of the exiles, but the glorious feeling will not last because of the trouble of Iran. All this is said to precede the redemption.

Rabbi Hai Goan tells us A sign of the “end of days” is when Edom rules upon Yisrael for not less than 9 months, but not more than 3 years. After this period Yisrael will take the kingship from Edom. This will be after Edom removes the kingship from power that is ruling Ashur (Iran).

The are many ways these things can work out as the Rambam reveals.

The report said applicants were asked whether they would fight with the

U.S. military against Israel
in a “hypothetical conflict.” Those who did not

pledge to fight Israel were denied security clearance by the Appeals Board.

“The Appeal Board rejected the Administrative Judge’s assumption that

Israel did not pose a serious security risk because it was a country friendly

to the U.S.,” the report said. “It held that such a view ignores the historic

reality that relations between nations can shift, and that even friendly nations

can have profound disagreements with the United States over matters which

they view as important to their vital interests or national security.” (Issue Date: http://www.insightmag.com — June 27-July 4, 2006, Posted On: 6/26/2006)

Obama camp ‘prepared to talk to Hamas’

Incoming administration will abandon Bush’s isolation of Islamist group to initiate low-level diplomacy, say transition sources

The incoming Obama administration is prepared to abandon George Bush’s ­doctrine of isolating Hamas by establishing a channel to the Islamist organisation, sources close to the transition team say.

The move to open contacts with Hamas, which could be initiated through the US intelligence services, would represent a definitive break with the Bush ­presidency’s ostracising of the group. The state department has designated Hamas a terrorist organisation, and in 2006 ­Congress passed a law banning US financial aid to the group.

A potential contender for a ­foreign policy role in the Obama administration suggested that the president-elect would not be bound by the Bush doctrine of isolating Hamas.

“This is going to be an administration that is committed to negotiating with ­critical parties on critical issues,” the source said.

This could easily become a politically toxic scenario for Obama of seeming to give legitimacy to Hamas.

Obama has said repeatedly that ­restoring America’s image in the world would rank among the top priorities of his administration.

Kid arrested for Marijuana gumballs

ELLICOTT CITY, Md. – Federal drug agents aren’t laughing about marijuana packaged in yellow, smiley-faced gumballs.
The “Greenades” gumballs were found in January at Howard High School in Ellicott City. The federal Drug Enforcement Agency recently released an intelligence bulletin about them.
“It’s a new idea and it’s new to the DEA,” Gregory Lee, a retired supervisory special agent of the Drug Enforcement Agency, told The Baltimore Examiner. “When it comes to drug dealing, you’re only limited by your imagination.
Police charged three 17-year-old students after a teacher alerted a school resource officer. She told the officer that she saw a student give a plastic bag that the teacher believed contained drugs to another student.
The officer seized the bag, which contained two “candy balls” wrapped in foil, police said. Instructions on the foil told users to chew for 30 minutes to 1 hour before they wanted to be high and to “chew for as long as possible, then swallow.”
Officers charged two students with distribution of drugs on school property and a third with possession of marijuana.

Woman testifies about cell phone in throat

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. – Prosecutors say a man shoved a cell phone down his girlfriend’s throat because he was angry and jealous. But defense attorneys insisted as a trial got underway that the woman swallowed the phone intentionally to keep the defendant from seeing whom she had been calling.
Marlon Brando Gill, 24, is charged with first-degree assault in the December incident involving 25-year-old Melinda Abell. Abell has given inconsistent accounts of what happened before she was taken to a hospital, where an emergency room doctor removed the phone.
She testified Tuesday on the first day of Gill’s trial that she couldn’t remember how the phone got in her throat, saying she had too much to drink that night.
She said in court that she could not recall writing a statement to police after the incident, in which she said: “I think he thought I’d been talking to other guys. … He took my phone to see who I had been calling.”
The statement added: “If I didn’t want him to see my phone, I would have just thrown it out the window and busted it.”
Much of her testimony centered on her relationship with Gill, of Kansas City, which started in 2004.
“It was good at first, then it got rocky,” Abell said.
She testified that he had verbally and physically abused her, but under cross-examination she acknowledged she never told police about the abuse and continued to live with Gill until the cell phone incident.

Man saves dog thrown from window

WARSAW (Reuters) – A man was bruised but alive on Wednesday after a Saint Bernard dog thrown out a two-story window landed on him as he was walking down the street in the southern-Polish city of Sosnowiec.
The 110-pound dog was pushed out of the window by its drunken owner Monday, police said.
“The dog had a soft landing because it fell on a man,” said police spokesman Grzegorz Wierzbicki. “The dog escaped with just a few scratches.”
“The man was also more in a psychological state of shock than physically hurt,” Wierzbicki added.
The one-year-old dog, named Oskar, was placed in an animal shelter while police investigate its owners for animal abuse.

Dog-cooking, tree-taking school-burner may lose job

BEIJING (Reuters) – A Chinese headmaster, who tried to buy off colleagues by cooking dog meat for them after secretly selling off trees around the school, ended up setting fire to classrooms when the meal burst into flames, a Chinese newspaper said Friday.
Ten classrooms containing televisions, computers, printers and textbooks burned down, leaving nearly 100 children unable to go to school, the Beijing Youth Daily said.
The headmaster, in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang, sold off a 1,000-tree arboretum surrounding the school on the sly, the newspaper said.
“In order to get the teachers not to tell anyone what he had done, on the afternoon of May 16, headmaster Meng got friends to obtain two dogs, which they proceeded to kill on the school grounds,” the report said.
“He then told the teachers they would have dog meat to eat that afternoon,” it added.
But the plan went awry when the dog being cooked burst into flames and set fire to the school’s main office and then the classrooms.
The local education bureau fined the headmaster 10,000 yuan ($1,252) and suggested he be fired, the newspaper said.
