Wednesday October 24th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    EXCLUSIVE: 253 Theaters Drop ‘Gosnell’ Amid Media Blackout to Defend ‘Sacrament’ of Abortion

    Searcy argued that abortion is tantamount to a “sacrament” on the Left, so any story that paints it in a bad light must be silenced. “Gosnell” tells the story of Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist in Philadelphia who was sentenced to life in prison for first degree murder of three babies he killed after birth and involuntary manslaughter of one of his patients. His disgusting clinic has been dubbed a “house of horror.”

    The Holy Apostle Philip of the Seventy, one of the seven deacons (Book of Acts chapter 8) is commemorated today on the traditional Orthodox Church Calendar: October 11th.

    Also honored on this day is Saint Cainnech (Kenneth), abbot of Aghaboe, Ireland.

    And this is the Synaxis of the Saints of Optina who were spiritual warriors for Jesus Christ at the Optina Monastery in Russia. The last was Martyred by the Bolsheviks in the 1930s.

      The Bolsheviks made the elimination of religion in Russia a major stone in their foundation, even had a special department dedicated to doing so. They closed/destroyed nearly 30,000 Orthodox churches and murdered nearly 100,000 Orthodox priests by 1940 when, overnight, Stalin reversed course and ‘rehabilitated’ the Church to assist in his efforts to defeat Hitler.

      Bolsheviks, Democrats – all cut from the same cloth and on the bias. They use religion when they need it and work to destroy it when they don’t.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2018/10/24/quarter-college-students-could-develop-ptsd-because-election-new-study-suggests/?utm_term=.930dd994f5f4

    Now tell me we haven’t slipped some when we see college students getting PTSD from an election. I realize that after eight years of Obama many were counting on the Feds to bail them out from the burden of student loans acquired after graduating with a useless degree, or is it the fear that with employment so high that they may actually have to face getting a job?

    I think it a bit insulting to military from past and present wars that now PTSD has been so deconstructed that immature snowflakes can be said to suffer with it due to an election. What will they do in 2020 when Trump wins again?

          I think most normal people would agree. Which is not to say you cannot end up with PTSD from a horrible event, outside of the military. Maybe witnessing the death of a person standing next to you… something like that.

            I did a bunch of undergrad work on PTSD, or Delayed Stress Syndrome as it was called in the late 60s. Problem is that much of the work was done by civilian researchers as the VA and DoD said it didn’t exist – even after bit was added to the DSM-III in 1980.
            The condition has been expanded, massaged and broadened (see gender spectrum, autistic spectrum, etc) to the point where it’s applied so broadly I think its true application’s long gone.

              Thomas Wictor said he suffers from PTSD. He was standing (a young child) next to someone thatwho was hit in the head by a rifle shot. Horrific results, and I can understand something like that. They guy on Fox said, the election of our President Trump should have been something more like a bad hair day.

                  PTSD’s too complex and too many people are punting it around as they’re making $$$$ at all ends of it, studying it (still…) and pretending to treat it. I believe that when they finally hold the researchers’ feet to the fire and make them come up with actual results we’re going to find there’s going to be some surprises. That said, after some 50+ years I ain’t holding my breath.

                  I wasn’t criticizing your opinions, just saying we need a lot more studies to see where the lines that define PTSD are. Problem is that as long as there’s money involved in studying it no one’s got a stake in finding the roots.

    Afghanistan: Muslim cleric engineered assassination of top General
    October 24, 2018 8:34 AM By Robert Spencer

    A Muslim cleric? A man who has dedicated his life to understanding correctly and communicating properly the peaceful teachings of Islam? How could he have misunderstood his religion so drastically? Surely Pope Francis is on his way to Afghanistan now, in order to explain to Mullah Sherin that authentic Islam and the proper understanding of the Qur’an reject every form of violence.

    Tommy Robinson Update
    https://www.therebel.media/tommy_robinson_this_statement_is_what_has_changed_what_s_happened_today?utm_campaign=tr_what_i_said_at_court&utm_medium=email&utm_source=therebel

    Yesterday I went to the Old Bailey — my fifth court appearance so far, all because I expressed my political views on Facebook, while standing outside a Muslim rape gang trial in Leeds a few months ago.

    I knew there was a chance I’d be sent back to prison yesterday. So I packed a bag and kissed my family goodbye — I didn’t know when I’d see them again.

    Fortunately, the judge agreed to refer my case to the Attorney General, rather than proceeding with a trial on his own. And there is still a chance that the government will come to its senses and drop this political vendetta against me.

    The judge said he made his decision after reading my witness statement, which my legal counsel had sent to him in advance.

    I then went outside the court and read that same witness statement to the 2,000+ people outside the court.

    You can watch a video of that speech, here:

    Thank you for your support — I promise to keep fighting for our freedoms.

    Yours truly,
    Tommy Robinson

      Great news! One thing to remember is that it could happen here should the Dems ever get back in power. Even now when they are out of power in most places, where they are in complete power such as in California, speaking out against jihadis can be dangerous and potentially career-ending if you are in the film industry.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
