It has been established at CEC that the current portrayal of Canada as a nation populated from the beginning by peoples from diverse cultures and racial backgrounds should be seen as nothing more than an act of deception orchestrated by academics in wilful disregard of the historical evidence for the sake of legitimizing the leftist/global corporate goal of creating a race-mixed Canada against its European heritage.

The record shows, rather, that ninety percent of all immigrants who came to Canada before 1961 were from Britain, that it was only after the institutionalization of official multiculturalism in 1971 that immigrants from the Third World started to arrive in large numbers, that Canada was 96 percent ethnically European as late as 1971, and that immigration itself was not even the most important factor in Canada's population history but the high fertility rates of true born Canadian pioneers.

It has also been established at CEC that the French Canadiens were practically a new people born in the soil of New France, or within lands inside present-day Quebec, driven by the "exceptionally high" fertility rates of women, 5.6 surviving children on average, coupled with honourable patriarchal respect for women with children, the hard work and self-reliance of farmers.

In this article we will show that before the conquest, from Canada's origins up until the 1760s, immigrants played a very small role demographically in the making of Canada. Not only the Quebecois, but the Acadians as well, were a newly created people in the soil of North America. Native born Quebecois and Acadians were the main historical protagonists in the settlement of Canada for almost the first two hundred years.

Another Misleading Text about Canada's "Diverse" History

Don't you believe current historians who tell you that "New France was a multicultural society, with a considerable First Nations population and an African community". This is the message advocated by one of the most widely used texts in Canadian universities, consisting of two volumes, Origins: Canadian History to Confederation, and Destinies: Canadian History since Confederation, by R. Douglas Francis, Richard Jones, and Donald B. Smith. This very successful text, now in its seventh edition, claims that it is a major improvement over "the older texts", not only in incorporating "new historical research", but in showing that "anyone seeking to understand our diversity today must first examine the pre-Confederation era" (Origins, pp. 108, viii, fourth edition).

The two volumes seek to imprint upon students an image of Canada as "diverse" and "multicultural" from the beginning. Needless to say, Amerindians were the first inhabitants of territories that came to be identified as "Canada" only through the establishment of French and Anglo institutions during the 1600s to 1800s. But the "first peoples", the Hurons, Algonquins, Cree, Iroquois, and others, were organized in tribes spread over territories that can in no way be identified as part of "Canada" before Europeans arrived. They were territories actually contiguous with the United States rather than neatly located within Canada. Only in retrospect, through the European science of geography, have they been, and can be, demarcated in the continent of North America for pedagogical instruction, but not as actually existing tribal nations with definite geographical boundaries, since none of these tribes were organized as nations with marked boundaries.

Amerindian cultural areas

European geographers, not the Amerindians, have classified the natives of Canada in terms of six cultural areas, "Northwest Coast", "Plateau", "Plains", "Subarctic", "Arctic", and "Northeast". Indians had an intimate knowledge of the land, the soil, migration pathways of animals, weather, location of rivers, lakes, mountains, upon which the first European settlers and fur traders relied for survival. It was the Europeans, however, who mapped these territories and eventually created our modern institutions from the ground up.

It is extremely anachronistic and misleading to tell students that these tribal groups were members of a multicultural Canada. The French and English, for one, inhabited separate cultural lives, and in respect to the Natives, they inhabited totally different worlds. Their interactions with Natives are best described as interactions between separate peoples, commercial and military interactions, which affected both sides, but which essentially involved the modernizing encroachment of the Anglo-French side upon the Native cultures, leading to a situation in which, by the time of Confederation in 1867, only 1 percent of the racial population of Canada was Amerindian.

This reduction was of course tragic for the Aboriginals. But it is only by identifying them as a separate people that we can acknowledge their distinctive heritage instead of falsely assimilating them into a "multicultural Canada" as co-creators of a nation that only became multicultural in 1971 and in which, to this day, most Natives remain apart.

It is outlandish for Origins and Destinies to tell students that "in 1867" the Natives peoples were one of the three "major groups" that made up "Canada's multicultural society" (Destinies, third edition, p. 1). How can one percent of the population living in "lands reserved for Indians" — to use the official designation of the British North America Act — be identified as a "major" cultural group in Canada, equal to the French and the British, which made up 92 percent of the population?

The historians of these volumes want to have it both ways: an image of a European Canada that "decimated" the Natives through diseases, and an image of "First Nations" as co-partners in the creation of Canada's parliamentary institutions, legal system, schools and universities, churches, and modern economy. They want students to believe that the Natives were the "first peoples", followed by the French and English, as the next two "major groups", followed by the arrival of "non-British and non-French immigrants", as a fourth major group. This fourth group is portrayed as a multiracial lot, even though the statistics contradict any such picture.

The facts about the ethnic composition of immigrants, which this text cannot hide altogether, show that, at the time of Confederation, the English constituted about 60 percent of the population, the French 32 percent, and the remaining "non-British and non-French immigrants" about 8 percent. The non-British and non-French were all whites from Europe and the United States.

Origins: Canadian History to Confederation

There was no "considerable" African community in New France. The facts stated in Origins, which are the only facts that can be legitimately used, contradict this contrived interpretation: from its origins to 1759, only about 1,200 African slaves were brought to New France (p. 111). Another source says that "from 1681 to 1818 there were approximately 4100 slaves in French Canada, representing less than one per cent of the population".

The facts Origins has to rely on, since they are the only historically documented facts, contradict not only its claim that Canada was created by diverse racial groups but also the claim that the Europeans generally were "immigrants". In the case of New France (and let us not forget that the history of New France is basically the history of Canada up until 1763), the text offers a detailed table on the number of French immigrants "by decade" from 1608 to 1759, from which we learn that the total number of immigrants throughout this period was only 8,527 (p. 93). By contrast, the population of New France in 1759 was about 60,000. These numbers are consistent with the numbers I offered in The Canadiens of New France: A People Created Through the Fecundity of the Women — Not Immigration.

Since the French were the first Canadians, and the English proportion in Canada as a whole, before the Conquest of 1763, was scattered and incidental, it behooves us to conclude, on the basis of the above numbers, that immigrants played a minimal role from the time Samuel de Champlain planted the first permanent settlement at Quebec in 1608 up until 1763.

This point can be further accentuated through a consideration of the Acadians. In the calculation of the demographic history of French Canadians, the Acadians are sometimes included without a clear identification of their own demographic identity. The Acadians were another newly created people in the soil of America, not in present day Quebec, but in the maritime part of New France, or in the province of present day Nova Scotia.

The beginnings of the Acadians closely resembles that of the Quebecois; they too began as a small colony of men, or wooden buildings constructed in Port Royal in 1605 by Champlain, but these colonists were forced to return to France in 1607. In 1611, 20 new colonists, including a family, were brought back to Acadie, but this settlement failed as well.

It was only in 1651 that a demographic dynamic was set in Acadie, when about 50 families, or about 500 settlers, were brought in. After 1671, 40 more families were recruited from France, leading to a population of 800+ by 1686. By 1710, there were around 2,000 Acadians, "most of them born in North America" (J.M. Bumsted, 2003, p. 39). The text Origins likewise informs us that the "average Acadian couple usually married in their early twenties and had ten or eleven children, most of whom survived to adulthood" (p. 140).

Without any more French immigration, "the Acadian population multiplied by nearly 30 times between 1671 and 1755". By 1750, "there were more than 10,000", and "in 1755, more than 13,000 (excluding Louisbourg" (Origins, pp. 141-44). J.M. Bumsted tells us that Louisbourg's Acadian population was 3,500 in the 1750s (2011, p. 67).

The British gained control of Acadia in 1713, and in 1749 some 2500 British Americans were recruited, and then in 1750-51 about 1500 German Protestants settled at Lunenburg. This population, however, has not been counted in the above Francophone numbers. We will be writing about British immigration/birth rate patterns in a future article.

In the context of a full-scale war between France and Britain, and the refusal of the Acadians to give a formal pledge of loyalty to the British rulers in Acadia, in 1755-58 the British deported about three-quarters of the Acadian population. By 1762, they had expelled another 3000. However, in 1764, the British allowed about 3000 Acadians to resettle back in Nova Scotia, and by 1800 the Acadians numbered 4000.

It should be noted that in the 1740s there were about 700 Acadians in Prince Edward Island (PEI), then known as Île St-Jean, and categorized as part of Acadia (Nova Scotia). In 1757, approximately 2,000 Acadians had fled to PIE as refugees, which increased the population to about 4,500, but the British expelled many of these Acadians in 1758. A census of 1803 showed a population of nearly 700 in PEI. In New Brunswick, a territory carved out of former Nova Scotia in 1784, there was a population of 4,000 Acadians in 1803, a "result of high birth rates rather than the return of more exiles" (Origins, p. 153; Bumsted, 2011, p. 109).

The conclusion we must reach is quite self-evidential: the Acadians began as a small group of immigrant families, only to grow into a people with blood ties firmly set in Acadia, through a very high fertility rate, with its own unique Francophone identity, with speech patterns quite different from the Quebecois, in a very harsh environment that required the harvesting of salt from the salt marshes, the clearing of forested uplands, the building of dikes to reclaim land from the Bay of Fundy's strong tides; yet establishing themselves with a "far higher standard of living than all but the most privileged French peasants", coupled with a spirit of independence and refusal to submit to external authorities, which led to their expulsion, though not their demise, constituting today about 11,000+ in Nova Scotia, and 25,000 in New Brunswick.

The claim that Acadians were just immigrants no less different to the making of Canada than Sri Lankan Tamils, corrupt Chinese real estate millionaires, and Somalis is patently absurd, a discreditable claim that only academics who are out of touch with historical reality, and shamelessly unburdened by their traitorous attitudes towards their ancestors, would make.

[Emphasis added to give you an idea what Vox considers wacky social justice nonsense]

This isn't Jon's fight. It certainly isn't the comics journalists' fight; they are on the other side. This is a fight for everyone, of the Left and of the Right, who doesn't want to be totally controlled by the social justice warriors. This is for everyone who wants to be able to write what he wants to write, to draw what he wants to draw, and to tell the stories that he wants to tell without facing immediate disemployment and permanent blackballing from the industry.

This is the GamerGate situation on steroids. It is as if all the game developers teamed up with the game journos against the gamers rather than quietly siding with the gamers.

Everyone to the left of me desperately wants to believe that a line will somehow be drawn between them and the evil crimethinkers of the extreme right. But Chuck Dixon, Will Caligan, and Jon Malin all demonstrate that the line will always and continuously move leftward until every individual and organization in the comics industry are forced to converge to the highest abstract standard of social and distributive justice in the utmost degree.

That is the goal. Since 1861, that has always been the goal.

Quote# 136178

Are Baha'i Christian?

The Biblical answer is No! But Baha'i will answer, 'yes.' They claim the foundations of Christianity and the religion of Baha'u'llah are one. The foundations of all the divine Prophets and Holy Books are one. The difference among them is one of terminology only.
The Baha'i Faith is essentially rationalistic. "We must not accept traditional dogmas that are contrary to reason, nor pretend to believe doctrines which we cannot understand. To do so is superstitious and not true religion."

Because of this inclination to reject any doctrine that does not seem reasonable to them, Baha'i interpret allegorically, rather than literally, the biblical doctrines of the Holy Trinity, the bodily Resurrection of Christ, the existence of angels and evil spirits, and the doctrines of heaven and hell. Yet, despite this insistence that everything must be understood in order to be believed, they hold that God Himself is impersonal and unknowable. He can only be perceived indirectly through the reflection of his Manifestations - Jesus being ONLY ONE of these NINE, in no manner superior to the other eight.

Baha'i deny that man fell through Adam from his original spiritual and moral state. They affirm that no one is "essentially" bad or evil, but merely imperfect. Sins are characteristics of the lower, baser plane of nature, and education brings deliverance from them. Baha'u'llah taught that men ought not to confess their sins to one another, for this would lead to humiliation and abasement, which he taught, are contrary to God's will.

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. [James 5:16]

Foundations of Christianity vs. Baha'u'llah

Baha'i will argue that whoever acts completely in accordance with the teachings of Christ is a Baha'i. The purpose, they claim, is the essential meaning of Christian, not the mere word.

The purpose is the sun itself and not the dawning points. For though the sun is one sun, its dawning points are many. We must not adore the dawning points but worship the sun. We must adore the reality of religion and not blindly cling to the appellation Christianity. The Sun of Reality must be worshiped and followed. We must seek the fragrance of the rose from whatever bush it is blooming - whether oriental or western.

Baha'i reject the foundation of Christianity - the essential meaning of Christian.

Jesus Christ is the foundation upon which Christianity rests - not one of several manifestations as Baha'i insist.

Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. [John 14:6]

As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him - you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame." Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, "The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone," and, "A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall." They stumble because they disobey the message - which is also what they were destined for. [1 Peter 2:4-8]

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved. [Acts 4:12]


Concerning salvation, Baha'u'llah said, "Whoso keepeth the commandments of God shall attain everlasting felicity." And Abdul Baha stated that there is no sin-atoning value in Christ's sacrificial death on the cross. So inadequate was his concept of redemption that Baha'u'llah was able to say of himself: "Fix your gaze upon Him who is the Temple of God amongst men. He, in truth, hath offered up his life as a ransom for the redemption of the world."

The Central conflict between Baha'u'llah's concept of salvation and the biblical revelation on the subject is best shown in where Baha'u'llah stated: "Every age has its own problem, and every soul its particular aspiration. The remedy the world needeth in its present day afflictions can never be the same as that which a subsequent age may require." In contrast to this, the Bible teaches that the one universal problem of man throughout the ages is sin, his state of moral guilt and consequent alienation from God. Thus the one remedy - the only possible remedy for mankind's dilemma - is the death of Jesus Christ for our sins, a sacrifice sufficient to save all who turn to Him for all time as God tells us in Hebrews 10:10-18.

A bacterial flagellum is a motorized system the size of a virus with more power than a NASCAR engine. Mankind couldn't recreate it. A motor has never been observed to be the result of anything but intelligence. But, you want us to believe a bacterial flagellum could be the result of anything but an intelligent being?

The sun is 400 times bigger than the moon. Yet, the same distance to form a perfect solar eclipse as it did last year. You want us to believe that kind of symmetry is result of random chance rather than an intelligent being?

Indian education minister dismisses theory of evolution

Scientists condemn Satyapal Singh for saying ‘Darwin’s theory is scientifically wrong’

India’s minister for higher education has been condemned by scientists for demanding the theory of evolution be removed from school curricula because no one “ever saw an ape turning into a human being”.

Satyapal Singh stood by his comments on Monday, saying his ministry was ready to host an international conference where “scientists can come out and say where they stand on the issue”.

“I have a list of around 10 to 15 great scientists of the world who have said there is no evidence to prove that the theory of evolution is correct,” Singh told a crowd at a university in Assam state, adding that Albert Einstein had agreed the theory was “unscientific”.

Singh, who has a postgraduate degree in chemistry from Delhi University, said he was speaking as a “man of science”.

“Darwin’s theory is scientifically wrong,” he said at the weekend. “It needs to change in the school and college curriculum.

“Since man is seen on Earth, he has always been a man. Nobody, including our ancestors, in written or oral, said they ever saw an ape turning into a human being.”

More than 2,000 Indian scientists have signed a petition in response calling Singh’s remarks simplistic, misleading and lacking in any scientific basis.

“It is factually incorrect to state that the evolutionary principle has been rejected by the scientific community,” the statement said. “On the contrary, every new discovery adds support to Darwin’s insights. There is plentiful and undeniable scientific evidence to the fact that humans and the other great apes and monkeys had a common ancestor.”

Charles Darwin published his theory of evolution nearly 160 years ago, arguing that all species, including humans, evolved over time through a process of natural selection. He argued that humans and apes share a common ancestor who lived more than 7m years ago, an idea frequently misunderstood to be suggesting modern apes turned into human beings.

Ancient Indian scholars are credited with advances in astronomy and mathematics including the invention of the concept of zero, but religious nationalist figures have been accused in recent years of pushing “ideological science”.

That includes claims by the prime minister, Narendra Modi, that myths from the origin texts of Hinduism include evidence of plastic surgery and genetic science.

YS Rajan, a prominent scientist, said in response to Singh’s comments that Hindu texts such as the Rigveda included lines that explicitly embraced knowledge from across the world.

“Nothing in ... Bharatiya samskaar [Indian philosophy] would demand rejection of such theory or for that matter any scientific findings,” he wrote on Facebook.

Absolutely. When I give my loyalty to someone, they always come first. I don't give my loyalty to the law or society; when I take on a partner, their welfare takes precedence.

How would I help them? Send them away, somewhere with cameras, so that they have an alibi while I dispose of the body. I move the body into a remote wooded area, dig a pit, body goes in, burn for half a day (have myself a camping trip) smash up any bone fragments so they're unidentifiable, then meet up with spouse for victory celebration.




So your morals go out the window just like that? It's murder, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near a murderer.



So your love for your partner goes out the window just like that? If that's morality, then I don't need morals.

Yes, itd be very hard for me to say "I love you, especially the way you murdered that person. I don't care what their family is going through."

Maybe I haven't loved someone enough to see your perspective.


I haven't loved anyone that much. I'm just stating what my idea of love is. It's not something shallow that disappears when it's inconvenient.


Disappears because murdering someone is inconvenient? Wow.



YES. Honestly, this morality bullshit kind of creeps me out.

"I wouldn't want to be anywhere near a murderer." "I couldn't live with myself knowing I'm just letting someone cause harm to society."

They're talking about their significant others, but it sounds like they're talking about complete strangers. Something bad happens and they just completely turn on their partner. Sorry, guess when you got married you should have said "for better or for worse (unless you kill someone; I ain't going to jail)."
.

I guess murder isn't a huge deal to you.


Betraying someone's trust is more of a big deal to me.


So your SO kills your mother you'll still help her hide the body?



Probably. My mother can be insufferable. Plus it's not like I can bring her back by turning in my SO.

Judge Jack Robison appears to be channeling a higher authority recently in Comal County, Texas. Robison interrupted jurors during deliberations to inform the panel that God told him to acquit Gloria Romero-Perez of trafficking a teenage girl for sex. It appears that divine judgment did not track well with the jury, which proceeded to find Perez guilty as charged.

Perez was accused of paying $6,000 (£4,300) to smuggle ta 15-year-old girl to the US from Honduras. She then received money from an older man who had sex with the girl and had a child by her.

Obviously, if this account is true, Robison needs to be stripped from the bench. He was reelected as a Republican to the 207th District Court without opposition. His current term expires on December 31, 2018.
He received is B.A. from Missouri State University and his J.D. from St. Mary’s University of San Antonio. He was reprimanded in 2011 for jailing a grandfather who called him a fool for his ruling on the custody of the man’s granddaughter.

TVN this evening aired its undercover investigation into Polish neo-Nazis.

It focused on the group Duma i Nowoczesnosc (Pride and Modernity), showing how its president last year organised a celebration of the 128th anniversary of Hitler's birth.

At the event, Nazi flags were hung from trees, an 'altar' honouring Hitler was set up, and the participants, some of whom were dressed in Wehrmacht and SS uniforms, gathered around a flaming swastika. At the end they made a toast 'to Adolf Hitler and our homeland, beloved Poland'.

One leading figure in DiM, Jacek Lanuszny, is an assistant to member of parliament Robert Winnicki, the president of Ruch Narodowy (a movement that aims to be the respectable face of Polish nationalism).

TVN reports that, after Winnicki intervened in an investigation into the president of DiM, the national prosecutor's office, which is under the control of justice minister Zbigniew Ziobro, discontinued the case.

As NfP has notes previously, last year the prosecutor's office reportedly intervened to encourage a court to withdraw an indictment against radical-nationalist priest Jacek Miedlar and to reduce the sentence given to his colleague, Piotr Rybak, for publicly burning a Jewish effigy.

The day she filed for a legal divorce, she no longer had any part in my ministry. Her loss will be great in eternity. Of the thousands of souls saved by God's grace through this ministry, she has no part in any of it. Daniel 12:3, “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” I humbly believe that thousands of people will one day thank me in Heaven, appreciate that they were led to Christ through my ministry labors for Christ.

Sermon 21: Against Materialism

By The Rev. William H. Grimes

1 Timothy 2:9 says: "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;"

1 Peter 3:2-5 likewise says "Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands"

Let's talk about these women these days. They go out, trying to look good, with all of this jewelry and this makeup and all of these garments that are immodest and exist solely for them to show off their wicked curves and breasts and whatnot. There is all of these cosmetics, taking HOURS AND HOURS to get ready just to put it on, and then wearing this floral perfume with the raspberry and the vanilla notes or whatever, instead of taking that time to read the Word of God! Get yourself out of the bathroom and into the den reading the Gospel of Matthew! Stop going to the mall to shop and be catty and gossip and all of this, and read the Book of Judges! Get your head into Genesis and not going and buying "cute" garments at Victoria's Secret or Forever 21!!!!!!!! I GUESS THEY ARE ALL TRYING TO LOOK LIKE TAYLOR SWIFT OR SOMETHING!!!! OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!

There are even so-called "Christian" women who belong to Roman Catholic or mainline Protestant or even weak sauce "Evangelical" groups such as the Southern Baptist Convention who go about this pursuit of immense and unmitigated vanity!!!!!!!! WHERE ARE THE REAL CHRISTIAN WOMEN GOING AND PROTESTING OUTSIDE OF VAIN AND SICKENING DISPLAYS OF VANITY LIKE ALL OF THESE SEPHORA OUTLETS POPPING UP IN MALLS ALL ACROSS THIS NATION WHILE GOD FEARING CHRISTIANS IN AFRICA ARE STARVING?!

Street-level politics, more specifically an ongoing conflict between white supremacist demonstrators and antifa, or anti-fascist counterprotesters, has become a big news story following the rise of Donald Trump. Now a gun company is using anger over antifa to sell dangerous assault rifles to only one side.

Spike’s Tactical, a gun company, previewed an ad on its Facebook page that depicts four heavily armed white men standing on the opposite side of a barrier and facing down a group of masked, unarmed antifa protesters. The ad mentions the sites of several political clashes that took place last year, including Berkeley, California; Portland, Oregon; Boston; and Charlottesville, Virginia. In the latter city, neo-Nazis and white supremacists arrived at a rally heavily armed last August, and a driver struck a peaceful counterprotester with his car, killing her.

“Not today Antifa,” a tagline to the violence-teasing ad declares. Antifa, it should be noted, is a style of protest used by leftists and not a formal organization with a hierarchy.

The ad, which anti-fascists worry is fueling a desire to kill leftists, was run in conjunction with a clothing company called Pipe Hitters Union, which also posted the same version of the ad on its Facebook page. Newsweek reached out to both companies for a comment about the ad but did not immediately receive a response.

Of course, owning a gun is not connected with any specific political ideology, and as a result, some gun owners were unhappy with the post.

“Thanks for showing everyone you stand with the fascists,” a commenter wrote under the post to Spike’s Tactical. “Good to know.”

“Something tells me your WWII Grandparents need to have a talk with you,” another commenter wrote to the company, referring to the Americans who fought against Nazi Germany.

“I’ll make sure to never ever buy gear from y’all. Thanks for the heads up, assholes,” another person wrote.

Quote# 136055

It’s show business’ biggest night. It’s where the world recognizes the merits of the most talented artists and honors them with a golden idol. Typically, 40 million people tune in annually to this ritual. Most people get caught up in the glitz and glamour and don’t realize what it is they are actually participating in.

The Academy awards was birthed shortly after the formation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1927. The fledgling organization held a dinner in the Crystal Ballroom of the Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles to set out its goals. Among the topics discussed that night was how best to honor outstanding movie making achievements and thereby encourage excellence in all facets of motion picture production. The first banquet was held on May 16, 1929 in which they handed out the first statues. Officially they are named the Academy Award of Merit. The statuette has become the most recognized trophy in the world, known by its nickname, Oscar.

What’s fascinating about the design of the statue is that it is an art deco version of the ancient Egyptian god Ptah [1] (pictured at the top right). In Egypt, there were two major gods in charge of PICTURE MAKING, CRAFTSMEN, AND ARTISTS. One of them was Ptah. The ancient scribes and sculptors who created the best sculptures and pictures of the temples were granted a statue of the god Ptah from the Pharaoh himself. This ritual would take place at the capital at MnNfr/Memphis in the HutKaPth/Temple of Ptah. Likewise Hollywood’s award ceremony was held in a temple (The Shrine Auditorium) from 1947-2000 where it is now currently held at the Kodak Theater.

The term Oscar also dates back to the Egyptian god Osiris who ruled over the underworld in the constellation Orion. According to pyramid text, the Pharaoh’s soul would ascend into Orion to be reborn as a ?STAR? to live for an eternity, but there was a catch. The Pharaoh’s soul would have to transform into a spirit to reach Osiris. Once the spirit reached the Osiris, it was immortalized and remembered forever. I find it a fascinating parallel that a person has to become an ACTOR (transforming your spirit into another) to win an Oscar. These stars are then immortalized by placing their names in a stone star on the Hollywood walk of fame.

What’s also interesting about Orion is that NASA has discovered it has a Star Nebula where they believe that stars are born [2]. Ellen G. White wrote of Christ second coming in the direction of Orion.

Dark, heavy clouds came up and clashed against

each other. The atmosphere parted and rolled

back. Then we could look up through the open

space in ORION, whence came the voice of God.

—Early Writings, 41 (1851).

So here we have an ancient religion looking to the belt of Orion, modern science believing that is a star nursery, and Christianity looking for Christ’s advent to come from the direction of Orion. Is it possible that the devil is deceiving the world with a shift in focus?

Just like the Pharaoh was worshipped as a god who became a star, our modern culture has adopted this same practice by worshipping those who become stars. The Webster dictionary definition for worship is: extravagant respect or admiration for or devotion to an object of esteem.

The Bible is very clear about whom deserves our worship.

Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Matthew 4:10

Beware of Idolatry

Deuteronomy 4

15 “Take careful heed to yourselves, for you saw no form when the Lord spoke to you at Horeb out of the midst of the fire, 16 lest you act corruptly and make for yourselves a carved image in the form of any figure: the likeness of male or female, 17 the likeness of any animal that is on the earth or the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the air, 18 the likeness of anything that creeps on the ground or the likeness of any fish that is in the water beneath the earth. 19 And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you feel driven to worship them and serve them…”

The devil has not changed his ways… only his tactics. What worked in the ancient world to get people to worship the stars has now taken a modern form but is still star worship. Even those in the industry are aware of this worship connection. For example, at the 2006 Emmy’s award (the Emmy’s is another similar award ceremony like the Oscars), Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart were introducing the award for “Best Reality Show” when all of a sudden Stephen Colbert blurts out “kneel before your god Babylon…” [3] as if to joke about how people can now worship the “reality stars” just as the film actors are worshipped. When comedian Kathy Griffin won an Emmy award she states in her acceptance speech “This award is my god now” [4]. Academy Awards Presiden Hawk Kock thanks the “Oscar gods” in an interview for having such great films to choose from [5].

Don’t be seduced into watching the world’s worship ceremony this year. The only one who deserves our worship is the God of Heaven and Him alone. For more research, just type in “oscars” and “ptah” into google and read the articles yourself.

All of Disney's cartoons are either satanic or sexualized. As a parent we want to protect our children. My daughter is at an age where she see's and understands about Satan and his underhanded tactics. She now points these things out to me. Cartoon network channel is just as bad. I love listening to you as you explain what passages in the bible actually mean. Thank you so much for helping me understand gods commandments. Please enjoy your young daughter because they grow up so fast. God bless you.?

A Southern California couple are in custody after one of their daughters called 911 and led authorities to their home on Sunday. There, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department says it found 12 of the teen's siblings inside, including "several children shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings."

Of the 13 siblings living at the home in Perris, Calif., officials say six were under the age of 18. The siblings ranged in age from 2 years old to 29, and the daughter who sought help was 17 — though when law enforcement officers met with her, "she appeared to be only 10 years old and slightly emaciated."

"Deputies, when they arrived inside the house, noticed that the children were malnourished," Capt. Greg Fellows, commander of the Perris Sheriff's Station, said at a news conference Tuesday. "It was very dirty, and the conditions were horrific."

Law enforcement officers arrested their biological parents, David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49. Each of the parents has been charged with nine counts of torture and 10 counts of child endangerment. Each is being held on $9 million bail.

"If you can imagine being 17 years old and appearing to be a 10-year-old, being chained to a bed, being malnourished and [having] injuries associated with that — I would call that torture," Fellows told reporters.

All 13 victims were hospitalized for examinations and treatment. Although the Riverside University Health System declined to describe the minors' condition, Corona Regional Medical Center CEO Mark Uffer said the seven adults are "stable and they're being fed."

"It's hard to think of them as adults when you first see them because they're small, and it's clear they're malnutritioned," Uffer said at Tuesday's news conference.

Fellows explained Tuesday that the parents, who have lived in Perris since approximately 2014, had been home-schooling their children. When confronted by the police Sunday — according to the statement released Monday — "the parents were unable to immediately provide a logical reason why their children were restrained in that manner."

"It seemed that the mother was perplexed as to why we were at that residence," Fellows said. He added that law enforcement "had no prior contacts at that residence regarding any allegations of child abuse or neglect."

David Turpin's parents, James and Betty Turpin of West Virginia, told ABC News that they were "surprised and shocked" at the allegations because their son and daughter-in-law were "a good Christian family." They said they had not seen the family since visiting California four or five years ago.

The Los Angeles Times, citing public records, reports that the couple had moved to California from Texas several years ago and that they had declared bankruptcy twice.

Ivan Trahan, a lawyer who had represented the couple in their most recent bankruptcy filing, in 2011, was quoted by the Times as saying that the Turpins seemed like "very nice people who spoke highly of their children" but who had fallen into financial problems.

Trahan said David Turpin had worked as an engineer for Northrop Grumman. A spokesman for the defense contractor confirmed to the Times that he was employed there until 2010.

However, Kimberly Milligan, 50, who lives across the street, was quoted by the newspaper as saying that when she first moved in she saw a woman outside the house with an infant, but eventually stopped seeing the child. Over the years, Milligan said, she would occasionally see three children who looked like preteens.

"I thought the kids were home-schooled," she said. "You know something is off, but you don't want to think bad of people."

Considering the proximity of the houses, Milligan questioned aloud: "How did no one see anything?"

Milligan was quoted by Reuters as saying that two years ago around Christmas she saw three of the older Turpin children outside and complimented them on a Nativity scene outside their house. She said they "froze [as] if by doing so they could become invisible."

"Twenty-year-olds never act like that," she told the news agency. "They didn't want to have a social conversation."

Still, authorities lauded the bravery displayed by the 17-year-old daughter in calling attention to the situation Sunday.

"I appreciate the courage that this juvenile had," Fellows said Tuesday, "to escape that house and get out there and report this to law enforcement."

You're a complete idiot. READ THE DOI. Our rights come directly from GOD. As per our governmental founding documents.

And the Constitution is based on nothing BUT Biblical principles, and protecting our God given rights. Our government recognizes GOD's existence, our reliance on God and His grace/providence.

EVERYWHERE. Just visit Washington DC. /BIBLICAL ARTIFACTS AND SAYINGS ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE.

Can't you read? How sad. You completely ignore what is right in front of your face.

For 250 years our GOVERNMENT has opened every house and senate session with a Christian prayer right out of the Bible.

In God We Trust is our NATIONAL MOTTO genius.

Have you ever recited the Pledge of Allegiance? One nation, UNDER GOD.

Hellooooooo? Are you now going to insist that the Pledge contains no reference to God?

Probably. Thick as a brick. You are so threatened by the Bible and Christianity that you have to lie to hide from it. So sad that you run from the truth instead of embracing it.

No one can make an informed, intelligent decision, or form any viable, educated opinions, unless they start with the truth.

You insist on pathetic, cowardly lies. Good luck with that.

***NOTE: From three months back (not sure how I missed it before now)

Lady Checkmate's headline: "PSA: Trusted Users, No more Pending nor Holdups :)"

Don't forget to RECOMMEND. Thanks.

So, it seems we've found a way around our pending problem, i.e., Peewee the Crazy . I've whitelisted some of our long-time community members and will be adding to the list regularly. Making you guys 'trusted users' allows you to bypass the pending/held status and post immediately to threads, but still prevents Peewee from posting (thank God!).

This is our trusted list so far. If I mistakenly left you off, please let me know and I'll make that correction today.

*I'll tag you guys just to let you know, you're good.

**If any whitelisted person (sleeper sock) is accidentally whitelisted and then proves to be a troll or takes advantage of the whitelisted status, they will be immediately banned AND without notice. Sleeper socks, you've been put on notice.

The PP abortion **doctors** are often butchers. Right after an abortion, they have to get to the next one $$$$$ so the woman is expected to get right up and leave. They do not have the women back for a check. Sometimes baby body parts are left inside causing infections and even death. Often the uterus is perforated meaning she can never have children when she wants.

And they do not tell her she could get breast cancer according to some doctors who are real.

Hospitals do not want those **doctors** because of the liability.

There are no mammogram machines even though they take in a fortune.

They charge an arm and a leg for a simple infection. They prefer to do $$$$$ abortions instead.

Many of the premises are unclean...filth everywhere, blood on the cots, instruments unclean.

Again -- if you know a woman that needs care, tell her to go to a clinic, not PP. The doctors are real at clinics and they are cheaper. And they do everything PP won't do and then some.

BTW, they call it Planned Parenthood but are hostile toward any woman pregnant that wants to keep her baby and they do not offer pre-natal care.

lol...There isn't a evolutionists in the history of the group that hasn't quit a debate with me. I have made fool out of everyone of them, including [...].

And, it do it by quoting different factions of evolutionists that rip the other faction's version of evolution to shreds.

The fossil record matches Creationist model and completely contradicts Darwin.

If you want to debate that point, I'll kick your ass.

It's ridiculous to think the first of all fossilized species appear fully-formed with no history of evolving. It's not possible. Nor is it possible we'd find soft tissue inside dinosaur bones if dinosaurs existed millions of years ago. REAL science on fossilization says that is impossible.

Leftists are deluded and arrogant. That will get you an eternal ticket to hell. So be it.

The homosexuals will tell you about a guy they know that was married with kids and one day woke up and discovered he was homosexual. They have no problem with that.

Why can’t the opposite happen?

The fag lobby is, or so it appears to me, in violation of the latest leftist bandwagon, gender fluidity.

It isn’t just homosexuals finding a religion that have this happen. The leftist mayor of Ew Yuck City, Michael Bloomberg’s wife is a former lesbian.

(commenting on the fact that Lady Checkmate's comments get so many downvotes)

ThereforeIam:
I wonder who is on the LC downvoting bandwagon?

Lady Checkmate:
It's Peewee the Crazy hon. He actually uses socks not yet banned, (lol), to dv my comments back-to-back (no break in between-it's hilarious). He hasn't yet realized that the only thing downvotes effect is a person's spot on the Contributor's List AND ultimately it weighs in a channel's favor as it contributes to the amount of activity on a channel.
In closing, we actually appreciate the support.

ThereforeIam:
We all have issues, some of them are laughable.

Lady Checkmate:
True that. The thing is, even with issues, decent people don't go out of their way to try and hurt other people just because they disagree.

For example, there are a couple of people I don't like nor respect on DISQUS because of the way they treat/ed us Christians (I love them, but don't like'm). As a result, I avoid them and their communities. I don't stalk nor harass them and I actually wish them well and hope they come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. But I'm a Christian submitted to God and grown like that.

I have read that there is a value placed on the consecrated host by devil worshippers who pay for it in order to perform ritual abuse on the host. And apparently these devil worshippers can tell whether the host has been consecrated.
