I have a few catholic questions.


1. Which one of the statues has more power, and are they specialized? IE Would you bother the Mary statue for a minor car repair problem, or would a lesser idol work?


2. Do they kiss on the other bigger idols, like they do the little cross idol? And does the "call no man father" guy wipe the bigger idols between kisses like the cross idol?


3. Can the priests turn other food items into god, or does it just work on cookies?


4. When the priests turn cookies into god, does it act as a preservative? (possible uses in the food industry, much money could be made for the poor)....


5. If a shrine has more than one Mary idol, will they function simultaneously?


6. If the Mary idol is more powerful, and they will function simultaneously, why not just use bunches of Mary idols?


7. Do bigger idols have more power than the little bitty ones?


8. Do ceramic idols have more "oomph" and "whammy" than plastic ones?


9. Do the Mary idols have more "zing", "oomph" and "whammy"  than the other idols?


10. Since your priests can turn wine into blood, can that blood be used for transfusions?   Think of the lives that could be saved!  Or for cloning?


Thanks for sharing with us regarding the intimate details of your devout faith and worship of little thingies and grand ceramic creations.

Why Some Believe These ‘End Times’ Bible Verses Could Hold the Key To The Syrian Crisis 

http://www.theblaze.com

As the United States debates what, if anything, should be done in response to allegations that the Syrian government used chemical weapons on its own people, there’s a theological debate brewing, too.

Bible experts aren’t just sparring over whether the U.S. military should attack; they’re also going back-and-forth over theories surrounding the End Times (events surrounding Jesus Christ’s return).

Earlier this summer, TheBlaze began dissecting the subject, speaking with experts about what role, if any, they believe Syria will play in this theoretical occurrence. Numerous outlets have jumped into the fray, noting that many faithful are wondering just how important Damascus and Syria might be in this debate.

For starters, there’s one particular Bible passage that’s rekindling the entire discussion of how Syria fits into End Times theology: Isaiah 17:1-3.

The verse reads, “’See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted and left to flocks, which will lie down, with no one to make them afraid. The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim, and royal power from Damascus; the remnant of Aram will be ike the glory of the Israelites,’ declares the Lord Almighty.”

The first portion about a “heap of ruins” has some wondering if the present Syria crisis was prophesied in the Bible. But as The Huffington Post recently noted, some scholars believe that Damascus was already destroyed and that this particular Scripture refers to an attack by the Assyrians that unfolded in 732 B.C.

Some Believe Damascus Could Be Key to End Times Prophecy

Joel C. Rosenberg, a communications specialist and author, has become known for his fascinating insights into both the Bible and End Times. Specifically noting Isaiah 17:1-3 and Jeremiah 49:23-27, Rosenberg explained on his blog earlier this summer that Damascus’ destruction has not yet happened (the latter verse also promises this same destruction).

“These prophecies have not yet been fulfilled. Damascus is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities on earth. It has been attacked, besieged, and conquered. But Damascus has never been completely destroyed and left uninhabited,” he writes. 

“Yet that is exactly what the Bible says will happen. The context of Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 are a series of End Times prophecies dealing with God’s judgments on Israel’s neighbors and enemies leading up to — and through — the Tribulation.”

While Rosenberg is definitive in this sense, he does note that the Bible is not specific, in his view, about how the city will be destroyed or what the event will look like. Additionally, he notes that the implications of this destruction are not known either, as the holy book does not go into detail on the matter.

During a phone interview with TheBlaze earlier this summer, Rosenberg also explained Syria’s significance in the Bible, again bringing up both Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49. 

Charging that these alleged predictions get “very little attention,” the author explained that both speak specifically about the future of Damascus, the capital of Syria and one of the oldest cities in the Middle East.

“The Bible indicates clearly that Damascus will be utterly and completely destroyed at some point in the future — it will be a great cataclysmal [event] and it will be part of God’s judgment,” he explained.

The Bible expert said at the time that he didn’t see “clean hands in the fight” in Syria today and wonders if it’s possible “that the judgment of Damascus is not only coming” but that it could also be coming in our lifetime.

As The Christian Post noted last year, Rosenberg isn’t alone. Many biblical experts and theologians share a similar view. Jack Kinsella, another biblical expert, gives a particularly striking recap, especially given the fact that it was written in July 2012, but seemingly references events currently unfolding:

Olive Tree Ministries shared a commentary on its website earlier this week from prophecy author Jack Kinsella, who expresses the opinion that, based on Scripture, it is quite possible that Syria might look to engage neighboring countries, such as Israel, Iran or Turkey, in the conflict.

Kinsella believes that if Syria uses chemical or biological weapons in an ethnic cleansing campaign, foreign governments would be forced to take military action against Damascus. 

Such action would prompt Syria to retaliate with military strikes against its northern neighbor Israel. That could eventually lead to a domino effect, with counter-strikes from Hezbollah, Iran, Turkey and perhaps even Jordan, the “The Omega Letter” editor conjectures.

Some of these elements are certainly coming into play on both national and international stages. Whether as a result of prophesy or just by chance, critics on both sides are likely to spar over the matter.

This is what someone emailed me today because of what I posted against their video (below)

it is so sad that people feel like this today.  We just have to keep fighting and telling them as best we can.

This is the email:;

God is punishing everyone forever because of two people that didn't even know they were doing anything wrong? I mean they literately had no possible way of knowing not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of right and wrong.

It's like me telling my son not to touch the stove because it's hot, and then when he does and burns himself; I set him on fire and then torture any children he may happen to have in the future. Granted he lives that long after his "well deserved punishment"

Be aware of what you are supporting with some animal "rescue" (so called) organizations.  They may have clever word arrangements that spell CARE or things like that, but the bottom line is that their fuzzy "feel good" rules and regulations spell death for the animals waiting while they refuse to adopt out animals in their CARE while waiting for someone that fits their highly restrictive agenda.   Sure, they may never put down any of the animals in their "CARE", but with their restrictive adoption policies a whole lot of animals are put down waiting in line that could be adopted.  And you know what, some of them would end up in less than ideal homes, but compared to DEATH I think it would be preferable.


In a particular situation I am aware of personally I was willing to pay $100 for a kitten, but because I don't see the need for possibly dangerous inoculations for my other two INDOOR ONLY cats, I was rejected (I do believe strongly in rabies shots and neutering).   The people running these scam organizations have my purest and deepest contempt.   They do NOT deserve your support.  If they really CAREd about animals they would not be playing ignorant, feel good, ego games while so many animals are being put down.


If someone is willing to pay $100 for a kitten I would seriously doubt that they planned to eat it or put it out on the street, but at least the next kitty waiting in line would have a CHANCE at life.


Some of these "rescue" groups are misrepresenting what they really are doing.  Their pride and ignorance is inexcusable.  Don't support them with your donations.  Boycott pet supply stores that enable their stupidity and arrogance.

ps. I found an ad in the newspaper that just said Free Kittens and a phone number.  Our new three month old, domestic born, kitty was free and was brought home right after he allowed me to carry him around for about five minutes without scratching me.  I will call the vet tomorrow to have him checked out and stuff and then have the rest of his work done when he is old enough.

Here are the first two kitties
