Church Claims it Saves Ex-Gang Members but Actually Steals From Them

Image
A large black church organization SPAC Nation that claims to work toward reforming former gang members and ex convicts is actually robbing its members, putting many of them in debt by taking out loans for pastors with lavish lifestyles.

 SPAC Nation, sometimes referred to as a cult, gets lots of positive media coverage because most of its members are former criminals  sincerely trying to work toward a better life through "God". But an in-depth investigation from Huffington Post concluded that the church “created conditions for fraudsters to flourish within its ranks” and failed to act as pastors financially exploited members.

 Ex SPAC members have spoken out against shocking cases at the church. The pastors are targeting young black people from impoverished areas and “broken homes” and isolating them from their families, then exploiting them for money!

 A HuffPost investigation has found evidence that some pastors at the church have pressured the young black people they are …

Book of the Day "The Age of Reason"

Image
Thomas Paine's The Age of Reason; Being an Investigation of True and Fabulous Theology, was a best seller in America, where it caused a short-lived deistic revival.
 Promoting a creator-God while advocating reason in the place of revelation, Paine's controversial pamphlet caused his native British audience, fearing the results of the French Revolution, to receive it with more hostility than their American counterparts.
 This passionate and engaging recording of Paine's classic is as certain to provoke modern listeners to thought as it did his original audience.

Book of the Day "The Magic of Reality: How We Know What's Really True"

Image
Richard Dawkins, evolutionary biologist, presents a gorgeously lucid, book examining some of nature's most fundamental questions both from a mythical and scientific perspective.

Science is our most precise and powerful tool for making sense of the world. Before we developed the scientific method, we created rich mythologies to explain the unknown. The pressing questions that primitive men and women asked are the same ones we ask as children. Who was the first person? What is the sun? Why is there night and day? The myths that address these questions are beautiful, but in every case their beauty is exceeded by the scientific truth.

With characteristic clarity and verve, Dawkins answers these big questions. Looking first at some of the myths that arose to answer the question, he then, dazzles us with the facts. He looks at the building blocks of matter, the first humans, the sun - explaining the life and death of stars; why there's a night and a day - ranging from our solar syst…

Book of the Day "On the Historicity of Jesus: Why We Might Have Reason for Doubt"

Image
The assumption that Jesus existed as a historical person has occasionally been questioned in the course of the last hundred years or so, but any doubts that have been raised have usually been put to rest in favor of imagining a blend of the historical, the mythical, and the theological in the surviving records of Jesus. Historian and philosopher Richard Carrier reexamines the whole question and finds compelling reasons to suspect the more daring assumption is correct. He lays out extensive research on the evidence for Jesus and the origins of Christianity and poses the key questions that must now be answered if the historicity of Jesus is to survive as a dominant paradigm. Carrier contrasts the most credible reconstruction of a historical Jesus with the most credible theory of Christian origins if a historical Jesus did not exist. Such a theory posits that the Jesus figure was originally conceived of as a celestial being known only through private revelations and hidden messages in …

Book of the Day "Caught in the Pulpit: Leaving Belief Behind"

Image
What is it like to be a preacher who no longer believes in God? In this expanded and updated edition of their groundbreaking study, Daniel C. Dennett and Linda LaScola comprehensively and sensitively expose an inconvenient truth that religious institutions face in the new transparency of the information age - the phenomenon of clergy who no longer believe what they publicly preach.

In confidential interviews, clergy from across the ministerial spectrum - from liberal to literal - reveal how their lives of religious service and study have led them to a truth inimical to their professed beliefs and profession. Although their personal stories are as varied as the denominations they once represented, or continue to represent - whether Catholic, Baptist, Episcopalian, Methodist, Mormon, Pentecostal, or any of numerous others - they give voice not only to their own struggles but also to those who similarly suffer in tender and lonely silence. As this study poignantly and vividly reveals, th…

Book of the Day "The Misinformation Age: How False Beliefs Spread"

Image
The social dynamics of "alternative facts": why what you believe depends on who you know

Why should we care about having true beliefs? And why do demonstrably false beliefs persist and spread despite consequences for the people who hold them? Philosophers of science Cailin O'Connor and James Weatherall argue that social factors, rather than individual psychology, are what's essential to understanding the spread and persistence of false belief. It might seem that there's an obvious reason that true beliefs matter: false beliefs will hurt you. But if that's right, then why is it (apparently) irrelevant to many people whether they believe true things or not?

In an age riven by "fake news," "alternative facts," and disputes over the validity of everything from climate change to the size of inauguration crowds, the authors argue that social factors, not individual psychology, are what's essential to understanding the persistence of false be…

Book of the Day "The Stolen Legacy: Greek Philosophy Is Stolen Egyptian Philosophy"

Image
In this classic work, Professor George G. M. James methodically shows how the Greeks first borrowed and then stole the knowledge from the Priests of the African (Egyptian) Mystery System. He shows how the most popular philosophers including Thales, Anaximander, Plato, and Socrates were all treated as men bringing a foreign teaching to Greece. A teaching so foreign that they were persecuted for what they taught. He further shows a comparison of the teachings of the Mysteries to what they taught and with the former predating them the Professor's point is made clear, "In truth there is no such thing as a Greek Philosophy."

Book of the Day "The Man-Not: Race, Class, Genre, and the Dilemmas of Black Manhood"

Image
Tommy J. Curry's provocative audiobook The Man-Not is a justification for black male studies. He posits that we should conceptualize the black male as a victim oppressed by his sex. The Man-Not, therefore, is a corrective of sorts, offering a concept of black males that could challenge the existing accounts of black men and boys desiring the power of white men who oppress them that has been proliferated throughout academic research across disciplines.

Curry argues that black men struggle with death and suicide, as well as abuse and rape, and their genred existence deserves study and theorization. This audiobook offers intellectual, historical, sociological, and psychological evidence that the analysis of patriarchy offered by mainstream feminism (including black feminism) does not yet fully understand the role that homoeroticism, sexual violence, and vulnerability play in the deaths and lives of black males. Curry challenges how we think of and perceive the conditions that actuall…

Book of the Day "The Assassination of Fred Hampton: How the FBI and the Chicago Police Murdered a Black Panther"

Image

   Contending with FBI stonewalling and unlimited government resources bent on hiding a darker plot, this reconstruction relates an inspiring narrative of upholding morality in one man's memory.

Christian Woman Intentionally Crashes Car With 4 Kids Inside In Order to Prove God

Image
People often ask me, "What's the harm in believing! Why don't you atheists just let me believe what I believe?'

  And the answer is, because beliefs that don't corroborate with reality can cause you to do things and/or make decisions that will result in undesired outcomes.

  For example, a Christian woman told her four kids to take off their seat belts and wave their hands in the air before she drove her minivan into a median and intentionally crashed into a tree.

  Calicia Williams has now been charged with four counts of attempted murder. The condition of the four kids is currently not being released by authorities.

  This is what Williams told her kids just before the crash:
   “Detectives spoke with witnesses who advised Williams was traveling at a high rate of speed and told the passengers to take off their seatbelts, stretch out their hands, and stated, ‘The devil can’t hurt you, he only hurts bad people. You have the light of Jesus in you and only Jesus ca…

Amber Guyger Found GUILTY of Murdering Unarmed Black Man is his Home...
What do you think about the verdict???
   I agree with the verdict however, I was immensely disappointed when the family thanked Jesus and gave all the credit to God for the verdict being what it was.
   If god can make this woman receive a guilty verdict, why couldn't god prevent her from killing Botham Jean in the first place???

Christian Venue Refuses to Marry Mixed Race Couple

Image
According to Boone’s Camp Event Hall in Booneville, Mississippi, Christians aren't allowed to have mixed race marriages.

 A woman who works for the venue told LaKambria Welch, on hidden video, that the owners don’t host same-sex weddings… or mixed-race ones... Because they are Christians.



In the video, the woman says:

“First of all, we don’t do gay weddings or mixed race, because of our Christian race—I mean, our Christian belief,” the woman tells Welch in the video.

“Okay, we’re Christians as well,” Welch replies.

After a correspondence on facebook, Welch became suspicious of the church's reasoning.

“The owner took a look at my brother’s fiancĂ©e’s page and wrote her back to say they won’t be able to get married there because of her beliefs,” Welch said. “He told my mom and she contacted the owner through messenger to only get a ‘seen’ with no reply. That’s when I took it upon myself to go get clarification on her beliefs.”

  While refusing to do business with customers on acc…

Book of the Day "A.D. 381"

Image
In A.D. 381, Theodosius, emperor of the eastern Roman empire, issued a decree in which all his subjects were required to subscribe to a belief in the Trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This edict defined Christian orthodoxy and brought to an end a lively and wide-ranging debate about the nature of God; all other interpretations were now declared heretical. It was the first time in a thousand years of Greco-Roman civilization free thought was unambiguously suppressed.

JAY-Z Steps Up to NFL. "We've Passed the Kneeling Stage!"

Image
JAY-Z Steps Up to NFL. "We've Passed the Kneeling  Stage!" Last year, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter boasted about turning down an opportunity to perform on the Super Bowl halftime show.

“I said no to the Super Bowl. You need me, I don’t need you. Every night we in the end zone, tell the NFL we in stadiums, too..."
He wasn't lying!!!

Now, after suffering from low ratings and failing to get Cardi B and Rihanna to take the stage at Super Bowl LIII, the National Football League is turning to Jay for help.

Recently, the NFL announced a long-term partnership with Roc Nation, Jay's sports and entertainment agency, as the league’s official Live Music Entertainment Strategists. The partnership, which goes into effect at the start of the 2019-20 season, will serve to strengthen community through music and the NFL’s Inspire Change initiative.

"This is bigger than music and sports; it’s about unifying America,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell at an intimate press event…

Book of the Day "Deconverted: A Journey from Religion to Reason"

Image
And then Noah loaded the dinosaurs onto the ark...

   Assertions like these seem comical until you realize that many Christian parents aren't kidding when they teach them to their children as facts.
   Every day, impressionable young minds are conditioned to blindly accept wild biblical tales of floating zoos, talking shrubbery, 900-year-old humans, the undead, curses, levitation, demon/human hybrids and men who obtain super-human strength from the length of their hair.
   Allegiance to these teachings is expected, often demanded. Curiosity is muted. Doubt is frowned upon as a sin.
   And for those who dare to raise a dissenting hand, the threat of Hell looms ominously. A former religious radio host raised in the cradle of Christianity, Seth Andrews battled his own doubts for many years.
   His attempts to reconcile faith and the facts led him to a conclusion previously unthinkable, and this once-true believer ultimately became the founder of one of the most popular atheist commun…

Pastor Confesses he Sexually Abused Underage Girl While Praying and Reciting Bible Verses

Image
Ohio Pastor Cesar Guerrero, considered a prophet by his sheepish followers, has admitted to sexually assaulting an underage girl while praying and reciting Bible verses, saying to the child that she needed to be “cleansed.”


   Pastor Guerrero, of 'Mision Cristiana El Calvario Church' in Sharonville, was arrested Wednesday after he was accused of assaulting a 17-year-old girl who came to him to talk about her previous abuse. He ended up admitting that he used his position as a religious leader to further traumatize the girl.

   An affidavit stated Guerrero is believed to be a “Prophet of God” and as the pastor of his church, used that information to influence a juvenile into believing she needed to be cleansed from being molested as a child. Guerrero then arranged to meet the juvenile alone in his office.

   Guerrero used Bible scripture and prayers to “cleanse” the juvenile while he assaulted her, court documents stated.

   Guerrero only admitted what he did after he was ar…

Catholic Priest Steals Over $100,000 From Church. Won't Face Charges...

Image
Father Oscar Diaz a Catholic priest, allegedly stole 100,000 in cash from catholic church Resurrection Parish in Santa Rosa, California. The theft was only discovered because Diaz was in a car accident, and emergency workers found the money in is car!

  He has not been charged for the crime and most likely wont be.

  Diaz was in a car crash last week. When emergency workers were going through the wreckage, they found more than $18,000 in cash!

  The money was later discovered to be stolen from the church.

  Then things got worse: When law enforcement officials looked into it further, they found another $77,000 in his possession… all apparently taken from the various churches in which he had worked.

   Bishop Robert F. Vasa is in charge of deciding whether charges should be filed against Diaz...
   “This money was associated with Resurrection Parish in Santa Rosa where Father Oscar was pastor,” said Bishop Robert F. Vasa in a news release. “After an initial investigation and several…
