N4TM Commentary:
This case in New York appears to be a whole other matter.

I have not followed this story, until now; however, I must admit this video, now being termed, “the second Eric Garner video,” is disturbing. Horrifying really, because it looks like he’s already dead when the EMT takes his pulse. It is reported that he died of a cardiac arrest in the ambulance, and the grand jury’s records will not be released so… I don’t know exactly what to make of this video. The people of New York, thus far, have shown greater dignity and self control as they protest as opposed to those in Ferguson. I still think there are hands stoking the flame of racial discord in this country. Someone (corporations? Countries?) want the US to fracture into civil war and ethnic wars.

Christians be praying for God’s peace to reign. Pray for our Country, our fellow citizens, our local law enforcement, and that those who intend to divide us will not prevail.

Glenn Beck’s Mea Culpa is more Misdirection

Glenn Beck Mad ManGlenn Beck is ‘what’s trending’ right now for his latest interview with FOX News’ Megan Kelly.

This is where I tell you, “Told you so.” I reported often that Glenn Beck was an agent of change, exerting himself on the scene to divide and conquer the political landscape during his CNN Headline days and then his “Fox News” days. Certainly Fox has never been the same since Glenn Beck’s arrival and departure. He was a whirlwind. Stuffy and uptight Fox News only had that old goat, Bill O’Riley, who appeals to a particular demographic. Beck on the other hand brought with him his throngs of religious zealots, constitutionalists, and let’s not forget the bunker elk with their bug out bags and canisters of seed and gold bullion who are going to repopulate the earth in the event of the apocalypse.

Beck’s a Lover not a Fighterglenn beck david barton 828 rally

Glenn Beck did more than simply play out his role in “tearing the country apart;” he also, amassed the great apostate church to come together in a grand ecumenical push to restore “America.” Let’s not forget his forging the Mormon faith in front of Christian circles so much so that many Biblical illiterates vowed to, in the least, be a “good Mormon like Beck,” as opposed to a “narrow minded “Christian.”” It takes a special freak of nature to get all denominations that once opposed one another to join hands on the steps of the National Mall and pray to the god of America (idolatrous America). Beck is a great unifier not merely a destroyer. He loves everyone, including the Pope (then Benedict-but I’m sure he’s met the Jesuit one too by now). Beck and pals at FRC (Family Research Council) have done well to brainwash and rewrite history Americana. He’s done great in marketing end of days paraphernalia. He has garnered millions through his Villages speaking engagements and books. We can’t forget what he did for subscription to online TV and his clothing line of Skull and Bones and Illuminati symbolic wear.Glenn Beck Skull and Bones Clothing line 1791

CA Teacher Tells 1st-Grader Brynn Williams to Stop Talking About the Bible | Fox News Insider

□N4TM Commentary
Keep in mind this is another Todd Starnes piece via Fox News.  Considering that I still read the article and thought it worthy of a post.

I think it’s amazing that young believers brave ridicule to share their faith in the public schools. I applaud the mother who taught her daughter to trust in a mighty God and to want to share His Son’s first coming. However, our children should also be taught that the Word of God is offensive to the unbelievers; and that, persecution for believing in Christ Jesus alone for salvation is historically predominant versus being welcomed and received.  The God of all creation is able to use our children and protect them. (Matthew 19:14 “But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”) I believe more people learned of her brave lil presentation because she was shut up than those who would have heard it in her class. That children, is Romans 8:28!

Romans 3:23

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

John 14:6

Jesus saith unto him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Romans 5:8

“But God commandeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 10:9-13 KJV

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

2 Timothy 3:12-16 KJV

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”

1 Peter 4:12-14

“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trail which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteh upon you; on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.”

Op-Ed Columnist – The Billionaires Bankrolling the Tea Party – NYTimes.com

Excerpt:

“There’s just one element missing from these snapshots of America’s ostensibly spontaneous and leaderless populist uprising: the sugar daddies who are bankrolling it, and have been doing so since well before the “death panel” warm-up acts of last summer. Three heavy hitters rule. You’ve heard of one of them, Rupert Murdoch. The other two, the brothers David and Charles Koch, are even richer, with a combined wealth exceeded only by that of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett among Americans. But even those carrying the Kochs’ banner may not know who these brothers are.

Their self-interested and at times radical agendas, like Murdoch’s, go well beyond, and sometimes counter to, the interests of those who serve as spear carriers in the political pageants hawked on Fox News. The country will be in for quite a ride should these potentates gain power, and given the recession-battered electorate’s unchecked anger and the Obama White House’s unfocused political strategy, they might.

All three tycoons are the latest incarnation of what the historian Kim Phillips-Fein labeled “Invisible Hands” in her prescient 2009 book of that title: those corporate players who have financed the far right ever since the du Pont brothers spawned the American Liberty League in 1934 to bring down F.D.R. You can draw a straight line from the Liberty League’s crusade against the New Deal “socialism” of Social Security, the Securities and Exchange Commission and child labor laws to the John Birch Society-Barry Goldwater assault on J.F.K. and Medicare to the Koch-Murdoch-backed juggernaut against our “socialist” president.

Only the fat cats change — not their methods and not their pet bugaboos (taxes, corporate regulation, organized labor, and government “handouts” to the poor, unemployed, ill and elderly). Even the sources of their fortunes remain fairly constant. Koch Industries began with oil in the 1930s and now also spews an array of industrial products, from Dixie cups to Lycra, not unlike DuPont’s portfolio of paint and plastics. Sometimes the biological DNA persists as well. The Koch brothers’ father, Fred, was among the select group chosen to serve on the Birch Society’s top governing body. In a recorded 1963 speech that survives in a University of Michigan archive, he can be heard warning of “a takeover” of America in which Communists would “infiltrate the highest offices of government in the U.S. until the president is a Communist, unknown to the rest of us.” That rant could be delivered as is at any Tea Party rally today” END OF EXCERPT click on link for full article

The Holy Ghost Preparatory School should be indicted: Gay Teacher fired for seeking marriage license to 12yr partner

Here’s the breaking news via NBC 4 Los Angeles:IMG_0490.JPG SNNEWS gayparade

*N4TM Commentary to follow below

“High school teacher Michael Griffin was fired from his position at Holy Ghost Preparatory School in Bensalem on Friday after applying for a marriage license in New Jersey with his partner, a move that the school says “contradicts the terms of his teaching contract.”

Griffin, an alumnus of the private all boys liberal arts Catholic high school, had taught Spanish and French at the school for the past 12 years. He first  posted about his termination on Facebook Friday morning.

“Today I applied for a marriage license since NJ now has marriage equality,” Griffin wrote. “After 12 years together I was excited to finally be able to marry my partner. Because of that, I was fired from Holy Ghost Preparatory School today. I am an alumnus of the school and have taught there for 12 years. I feel hurt, saddened, betrayed and except for this post, am at a loss for words.”

Griffin says an email he wrote to school administration informing them of he and his partner’s plan to obtain a marriage license is what opened the can of worms and ultimately lead to his firing.

He says that he was blindsided by the school’s reaction and that his relationship with his partner had never been a secret to faculity and administration.

“I’ve been with my partner for more than 12 years, the entire time I’ve been teaching at the school,” said Griffin. “He’s been to numerous school functions with me, he’s even been to McCloskey’s house.”

When contacted for comment, the school’s headmaster, Fr. James McCloskey, said in a statement that Griffin’s termination was due to his obtaining a license to marry his same-sex partner, a violation of the school’s teaching terms and the contract that Griffin was under.

“At a meeting in my office yesterday, teacher Michael Griffin made clear that he obtained a license to marry his same sex partner,” McCloskey wrote in a statement obtained by NBC10. “Unfortunately, this decision contradicts the terms of his teaching contract at our school, which requires all faculty and staff to follow the teachings of the Church as a condition of their employment. In discussion with Mr. Griffin, he acknowledged that he was aware of this provision, yet he said that he intended to go ahead with the ceremony. Regretfully, we informed Mr. Griffin that we have no choice but to terminate his contract effective immediately.”

He believes this section of the teachers code of conduct is the one that led to his firing:

“That, although, the School welcomes teachers from other denominations and recognizes their rights to religious freedom, as employees of a Catholic institution, all teachers are expected to uphold lifestyles compatible with the moral teaching of the Roman Catholic Church.”

On Saturday, following an outpouring of support across social media sites,  Griffin posted another statement on his Facebook page:

“Thank you to everyone for all of your messages of love and support since yesterday,” Griffin said. “It is so overwhelming and my heart aches over everything that has happened. Holy Ghost helped form me to be the person that I am today. Even though I am no longer employed there, I wanted to share their mission and philosophy, because I feel like I have tried to make it my life’s philosophy as best I can, even now. I am trying to move forward with a peaceful heart and wish nothing but the best to my colleagues and students who mean the world to me.”

“I really did love working there, I went to school there, they formed who I am. I’m sure I’ll find employment at another school, hopefully rather sooner than later.” END QUOTE

being gay is not a sin imgscreenshot nbc 4 gay teacher fired story

[]N4TM Commentary:

This story came across my twitter feed this morning and I knew I would have to post this. Of course this story has many implications. The first thing you notice with NBC’s title is that a “Gay teacher” is being “Fired” for wanting to marry his partner; and, that immediately paints him as a “victim,” and his firing as socially unjust. Once you read the article and understand that the Gay teacher taught at a Catholic Private school other bells go off. First, the Catholic Church as an institution is going to come under fire for this, but wait, didn’t the Pope himself remove condemnation of Homosexuals just this year? Yes, yes he did. Then second, is there going to be a law suit which will attack private schools for discrimination, due to the firing of this gay man for seeking to marry his gay partner? Will all private schools now have to employ openly gay people, transgenders, etc? Thirdly, and most importantly in my opinion, was the downright absence of the POWER of the Holy Spirit in this “Holy Ghost Preparatory” school. The “victim” in this case states he is an alumni himself of this school and then taught at this school, and openly paraded his partner of 12 years at school functions and in front of the “headmaster” (principal). This is why in my title I called for an indictment of this school, because obviously there is no teaching of the bible, no exhortation happening for these young men to live godly, no clear cut teaching of sin and the unholy union of homosexuality to begin with. This school should not bear the name Holy Ghost. I am no defender of the false teachings within the Catholic religion, but clearly there are some teachings there that support and advocate the Sanctity of Life and also, unbeknownst to the current Pope (Francis) the Catholic church used to recognize homosexuality as a sin.

Despite what the young man in the image above believes (Matthew Vines), and all those homosexuals professing to be Christians and also gay, the Bible is very clear that homosexuality is a sin. The teacher in the story above was raised assuming in a Catholic home, went to a Catholic school, went on to earn his degrees to teach in the same Catholic school, and not once did he ever feel conflicted or convicted by the Holy Spirit that his behavior, his lifestyle, his lusts after other men were/are an abomination to the LORD? Clearly there was no gospel preaching, no good news taught about dealing with secret sins, nor about confessing your sins before a Holy and Righteous God in the school he attended or any of the so called Christians he communed with. He was so comfortable in his sin that he was “blindsided” by his firing since everyone knew he was openly gay! For that reason I call for an indictment of this school. The headmaster should be fired too!

[] N4TM Commentary:

Let me be very clear: I’m not opposed to these people protesting the stupid closure of the Memorial sites. However, I think there’s an element of theater –Still– in this situation. I think Obama wants this kind of behavior and that it placates his ulterior motive which is, to prove that the American people need a dictator to restore “peace and safety.” It also continues to add to the narrative that the Libs want to perpetuate which is, that “the #TeaParty elk are a fringe element ready to stage acts of “Civil Disobedience.”  I’m not “FOR” this type of nationalism, SUPER-patriotism. I am not Anti-American but I’m not for this silliness. Let me reiterate, I am glad these people exercised their 1st Amendment right and if we fail to exercise our rights then we risk losing them. The belief that America can go back to what it used to be (whatever you take that to mean) WILL NOT happen. The depravity of man and the idolatry that exists in this country is profuse, it’s not going to go away. The use of  “#OccupyAmerica” is also NOT an endorsement of N4TM of anything related to “#Anonymous.” For those who are not informed on how twitter works, hash-tags such as #1MVetMarch, #OccupyAmerica, allow my tweets to be seen on those streams, it gets the attention of people on twitter and is not to be misconstrued as an endorsement.

“#” <– that is a Hashtag. Hash-tags are not to be considered an endorsement same as LINKS.

Remember, this is a blog where I add my opinion and I report on current news topics. I try to address Religious and Political news as well as other topics even if I don’t agree with said topics.
