'A ticking nuclear time bomb'

SUSPENDED from the ceiling, they are covered in deadly radioactive material that drops off them in lumps to the wet floor beneath. The 20,000 fuel rods contained in three tanks at the Andreeva Bay storage site once held enough nuclear energy to power Russia's entire submarine fleet. Now, cracks in the concrete walls of the dilapidated tanks have allowed seawater and rainwater to seep in and corrode the lethal contents. The situation is so bad Russia's nuclear agency has warned rods at the site could explode in an "uncontrolled chain reaction", according to a Norwegian environmental group, which says it has a leaked copy of a report.

AMERICAN IDOL:Hilton sent back to jail in hysterics

It will be a week that
Paris Hilton' -and a celebrity-obsessed nation — won't soon forget. What started as a graceful attempt by the 26-year-old socialite to accept her punishment for violating probation in a reckless driving case ended Friday when a disheveled and tearful Hilton was ordered back to jail to serve out the remainder of her 45-day sentence. After Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer was apparently unmoved by the pleas of Hilton's three lawyers to keep their client under house arrest, the hotel heiress was led from the courtroom crying out for her mother and shouting, "It's not right!"As Hilton sits in the downtown Twin Towers jail where she will undergo a medical and psychiatric examination, one question lingered: Was celebrity justice served?
Source:http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070609/ap_on_en_tv/paris_hilton
PS:I never thought I would write about Paris Hilton,but I think the well known events that took place yesterday have been witnessed in shock by many millions of people not only here in the Us but abroad,and they deserve my comment.
We witnessed on TV once more,more of the moral decay in which our nation is drowning in.People leaving flowers at Paris's mansion,planes flying overhead with sings reading:"We love you Paris" and thousands of websites and people in the media expressing their anger towards the authorities that have been so "Rude"to poor ole' lil' Paris...Give me a break!!!!ENABLERS!!!Do you realize what we have become as a nation...?that our youth worship girls like Britney Spears,Lindsey Lohan,Paris Hilton,(and that including some christian teens!!!)none of which are a good example of nothing other than being spoiled brats with money,with parents that somehow enabled them to live the way they do,drop outs from high school,porno tapes,lesbian pictures,DUI's,drug addicts,you name it they have it all??!!!I watch sometimes in awe to the comments people express on Tv,magazines,newspapers,radio and I wonder:Have I gotten too old?Am I missing something here?What about the good ole' fashion way of respecting parents,going to school,pick up a carreer,getting graduated,working a decent job,etc,etc...
What is more apalling to me is the fact that Paris Hilton seems to leave in a world (in a bubbble) so detached from reality!!!In Hilton's kingdom everything is possible for her at the sound of a bell.Nothing has been denied of this girl and she is used to deal with people in a way that HERE in the REAL WORLD,it's not acceptable.In OUR WORLD,when you drive under the influence and are stopped you get punished.You shouldn't be driving on the first place.You could KILL somebody for God's sakes!!!Then she was stopped for driving with a suspended license,and goes on and on and she violated her probation.That translated to the average Joe(that's you and me here in America) that means trouble and serving some time.
For Paris meant tantrums,estupid explanations like "she didn't know about the citations cause she doesn't read her mail and whoever does didn't tell her"etc.etc,and of course a soup opera yesterday in court.
To understand Paris's world you need to know first that their world is not yours and mine everyday world.In their world there are no rules,no boundaries,no NO's,no frustrations.....!!!She always gets her way.Well...not yesterday.She had a brush with reality that let her know that if she wants to live here in the US and abide by the rules of the land,she has to straighten up her act.
The shaking and crying and hollering was-to put it in simple "psichological terms"for an average Joe like you and I-a Major Display of Frustration in a 26 yo adult(?) woman,that very rarely has been frustrated in her life(that meaning she didn't get her way)
Honestly I feel sorry for her.I think her parents especially her mom is greatly to blame.She created a highly disfunctional child that cannot function normally in ours real world without the help of a shrink and pills!!Can u imagine???How much damage she has done to this woman?It's not irreversible,cause ALL things are Possible with God.I fear though if somehow the Word of Truth and Love of God doesn't get to her soon she'll try to commit suicide,seriously.Cause she won't be able to take it.She IS,from a medical point of view,SICK and needs a doctor(Jesus)I'm serious...You may think what you won't but I think this girl needs a touch from Heaven today!I don't like what she is and what she's done but I have great compassion,for people like her,cause once I was messed up too like she is now and Jesus saved me.
Have a great weekend!

Australian PM Opposes Homosexual Adoption

Australian Prime Minister John Howard said he does not support homosexual adoption of children, speaking on Southern Cross radio earlier today. PM Howard said heterosexual adoption was in the best interests of children.“It gives children the best opportunity in life,” he said, according to a report in the Herald Sun earlier today. “I know for some that sounds harsh. I don’t think it’s harsh, I think it’s something that most people believe is the desired, the ideal outcome.”The prime minister’s comments follow yesterday’s recommendation from the Victorian Law Reform Commission urging the Victorian parliament to allow homosexual couples to adopt and to grant lesbian women access to IVF procedures.
The law in the state currently prevents homosexual couples from adopting, and limits IVF treatment to women who are medically infertile. The Commission wants to see lesbian women have access to IVF whether or not they are physically able to conceive naturally.
Legislation permitting homosexual adoption was passed in the Australian Capital Territory in 2003, following similar legislation in the state of Western Australia. The ACT introduced legislation last year that would grant homosexual couples access to civil unions.
PM Howard has consistently opposed efforts to bring in pro-homosexual legislation, taking a strong stand against gay marriage and adoption.

No vaccine despite $600m preparation...

A MAJOR exercise has identified gaps in Australia's preparations for a deadly bird flu pandemic. The nation's medical facilities, communications systems and health workforce were all found wanting in the $4 million test run. A report on the exercise came amid warnings yesterday that 48,000 Australians could be killed and 150,000 put in hospital in a bird flu pandemic. Health Minister Tony Abbott said such an outbreak would cause "extreme fear" in the community, adding that about half of all Australians could potentially be treated with anti-viral drugs from the nation's pandemic stockpile.

100,000 Protestant Christians Urged to 'Own Up' to Haunted Past

Christians at the largest Protestant gathering in Germany were urged Thursday to admit to the wrongdoings of their Christian ancestors in an effort to reconcile and live peacefully with other religions.A lecture on “How Can Religions Live Together?” at the “Kirchentag” conference in Cologne, Germany, examined how conflicts are fueled and what can be done by Christians to defuse the tension and facilitate peace among people of different faiths.The Rev. Dr. Samuel Kobia, general secretary of the World Council of Churches (WCC), said conflicts can be fueled by religion, but globalization also contributes to the rising number of ethno-religious conflicts that makes up a large proportion of the world conflicts.

Israel Museum Displays Rare Old Testament Text

A rare Old Testament manuscript some 1,300 years old is finally on display for the first time, after making its way from a secret room in a Cairo synagogue to the hands of an American collector.The manuscript, containing the "Song of the Sea" section of the Old Testament's Book of Exodus and dating to around the 7th century A.D., comes from what scholars call the "silent era" — a span of 600 years between the third and eighth centuries from which almost no Hebrew manuscripts survive.It is now on public display for the first time, at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

Big Brother's watching: The secret CCTV bunker that monitors our every move

Britain has more than 4 million closed-circuit security cameras, more than any other Western democracy. Police say the average Briton is on as many as 300 cameras every day, usually unaware.
The density of surveillance is significantly higher than in any other Western democracy, says Jen Corlew, spokeswoman for Liberty, a London-based human rights group. "We are sleepwalking towards a Big Brother society, not in one fell swoop but by stages," warns The Spectator, a conservative magazine.
"There is no boot stamping on a face: just an ever more insistent foot in the door." But the vast majority of 4,000 people surveyed in 2005 said they believed that tapping phones, opening mail and following terror suspects were a price worth paying to stay safe, according to British Social Attitudes Report - an annual survey released in January.

Lombardy President Insists Christians Must be Active in Politics and Public Life; Otherwise, They Betray Their Faith

(Moscow)—President Roberto Formigoni of the Italian province of Lombardy has stated that every Christian lay person must have an active position in society, as reported in Interfax. "The Christian person cannot be disinterested in politics. If the believer is indifferent to his neighborhood or to the society around him, he betrays his faith. The Christian must actively express his life position," said Formigoni while at the Spiritual Library cultural center in Moscow.
He reportedly disagreed that political involvement was incompatible with being Christian and said that the modern politics was not only for "dirty handed" people and is quoted as saying that modern European states' secular policies are not an obstacle, but rather help Christians to be involved in political life and run for leading positions. The very idea of secularism, he argues, "originates in the Christian tradition" when Jesus urged "to render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's."
"The secular state respects its every citizen's choice. Christian politicians guarantee that all choices are respected and freedom of those who have different worldviews are safeguarded," Formigoni said.

In "Stunning" Development, Vietnam Gives Unprecedented Permission to Print 100,000 Bibles

"...the church is growing by leaps and bounds.....!"
President of WorldServe Ministries Dr. David Hunt says the country of Vietnam might be allowing more religious freedom. "In spite of the difficulties over the years and the challenges in Vietnam still today, to some extent, we are seeing some of the greatest opportunities and openings in the history of the nation," he said.
According to a report in Mission Network News (MNN), the reason for this is that the government has given approval to do something unprecedented. "Our friends in Vietnam have written permission from religious affairs to print 100,000 Bibles that will be released to the unregistered church in Vietnam. That is stunning," said Hunt.
The Bibles are needed because of incredible growth, adds Hunt. "The Church has grown so explosively since 1975; from about 55,000 baptized Believers to well over [nobody knows for sure] 1 million believers today, and maybe as close to 1.5 million Believers. And the Church is growing by leaps and bounds."
The report also noted the need for finances to help in the printing of the Bibles.

Pelosi Says Embryo-Destroying Research is a Gift of God

In a surprise move on Wednesday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) allowed for a vote on a phony cloning ban bill under special rules. Despite using every procedural trick in the book, Pelosi's strategy backfired, and the legislation tanked. In an effort to make up for that lost ground, Speaker Pelosi called for a vote on another bill that was a guaranteed victory. Furthering their attack on bioethics, she and her colleagues passed legislation for the second time this session that would increase the taxpayer funding of human embryonic stem cell experimentation. Although the bill managed to squeak through the House, it failed to get the number of votes that would be necessary to override President Bush's promised veto. Meanwhile, Pelosi must not have learned from Rudy Giuliani's experience during the GOP debate when the building was struck by lightening as he sought to justify abortion. Pro-lifers expected a similar jolt after the Speaker invoked God's blessing on the stem cell bill's passage, saying, "Science is a gift of God to all of us, and science has taken us to a place that is biblical in its power to cure... And that is embryonic stem cell research." Of course, it's complete nonsense to suggest that God wants us to destroy human embryos, since they are His own creation. This is just the latest example of the Left's aggressive efforts to lure the unsuspecting into supporting immoral and unethical policies which are whitewashed with spiritual words and phrases. In other Congressional action yesterday, a bill was introduced that will punish pharmacists that refuse to dispense Plan B because of moral objections. If the Access to Birth Control Act passes, pharmacists could no longer opt-out through conscience protection laws and would face a $500,000 fine if they stand their moral ground. Join us in urging Congress to respect the conviction of pharmacists--not punish them because of it. Source:

Robot designed to move just like a real child between 1 and 3 years old!!!!!
A group of scientists in Japan have developed a robot that acts like a toddler to better understand child development.
The Child-Robot with Biomimetic Body, or CB2, was developed by a team of researchers at Osaka University in western Japan and is designed to move just like a real child between 1 and 3 years old.
CB2, at just over 4 feet tall and weighing 73 pounds, changes facial expressions and can rock back and forth.
The robot's movements are smooth as it is fitted with 56 actuators in lieu of muscle. It has 197 sensors for touch, small cameras working as eyes, and an audio sensor. CB2 can also speak using an artificial vocal cord.
When it stands on its feet, the robot wobbles like a child who is learning how to walk.
Minoru Asada, a professor at Osaka University who leads the project, said Friday the robot was developed to learn more about child development.
"Our goal is to study human recognition development such as how the child learns a language, recognizes objects and learns to communicate with his father and mother," he said.

CHRISTIANS WORLDWIDE FASTING FOR NORTH KOREA

Christians all around the world are gathering to pray and fast from June 1 to July 10, for 40 days, in response to the great spiritual attack on the youth of North Korea as well as their own nations.
This second annual 40 day fast, hosted by NK Missions began Friday, June 1 and ends on July 10. Signups for the fasting chain are online at www.nkprayer.com. Resources include daily prayer updates, fasting guides, emailed reminders of the day of your fast, and a community blog where fasters will post their prayers.
The 40 Days is in response to the great spiritual attack on the youth of North Korea and our own nations. North Korean children are being attacked through malnutrition, systematic brainwashings with atheistic ideologies, and forced idolatrous worship. The youth in the US are being attacked through tragedies like Virginia Tech and are being tempted into greater drug use, gangs, physical impurities, and depressions. And the youth of Africa are being left orphaned through the AIDS crisis, while the children of South Korea, Japan, and beyond are being more and more neglected with the degeneration of the family unit.
During the 40 Days, Christians from the US, China, the Ukraine, South Korea, Russia, Japan, Kenya, Liberia, North Korea, and more are saying as they pray, that God will deliver their children from this attack and set them free, and they are waiting in anticipation for God to move.

Christian Sports School Suit Settled

A school district that put restrictions on a Christian sports group has agreed in a federal court settlement to give it the same privileges as other student groups.
The Pleasanton school district in eastern Kansas had been accused of refusing to let the Fellowship of Christian Athletes use school facilities for free, use school vehicles, appear in the yearbook or raise money on school grounds in 2005 because of its religious affiliation.
In one case, the district tried to charge the group a fee to hold a rally on school property.
The deal was reached late last week in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kan. An injunction in January had ordered the district not to discriminate against the club.
Terrelle A. Mock, attorney for the district, had argued in January that the club could not be a school-sanctioned student group because it wasn't curriculum-based. She said neither she nor district officials would comment on the settlement.
Kristie McKee, the mother of three students in the district, brought the lawsuit.
"To give credit to the school district, they thought they were following the law," said Joel L. Oster, attorney for the students. "After we won the injunction, they said, 'If that's what the law is, then that's what the law is.'"
A spokesman for the Kansas City-based group said the organization seldom has problems with school districts.
"This was a pretty rare case, so it did surprise me, but we also knew how it would come out," spokesman Tom Rogeberg said Thursday.

Just add water - students invent alcohol powder

"...And knowledge shall be increased"
(Daniel 12:4)
Dutch students have developed powdered alcohol which they say can be sold legally to minors.
The latest innovation in inebriation, called Booz2Go, is available in 20-gramme packets that cost 1-1.5 euros ($1.35-$2).
Top it up with water and you have a bubbly, lime-colored and -flavored drink with just 3 percent alcohol content.
"We are aiming for the youth market. They are really more into it because you can compare it with Bacardi-mixed drinks," 20-year-old Harm van Elderen told Reuters.
Van Elderen and four classmates at Helicon Vocational Institute, about an hour's drive from Amsterdam, came up with the idea as part of their final-year project.
"Because the alcohol is not in liquid form, we can sell it to people below 16," said project member Martyn van Nierop.
The legal age for drinking alcohol and smoking is 16 in the Netherlands.
In Germany, alcopops -- sweet drinks containing alcohol and in powder form -- caused quite a stir when launched on to the market. Alcohol powder, classified as a flavoring, was sold in the United States three years ago.
The students said companies interested in making the product commercially could avoid taxes because the alcohol was in powder form. A number of companies are interested, they said.

Brazilian Soccer Heartthrob’s Response to Supermodel’s Anti-Catholic Outburst: I Was a Virgin When I Got Married

The Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen is receiving widespread media coverage after an outburst in which she criticized the Catholic Church for its teachings on premarital sex, abortion and contraceptives.
Bundchen’s remarks follow closely on the heel’s of Pope Benedict’s visit to the Catholic country, during which visit he repeatedly restated the Church’s teachings on social issues, exhorting Brazilians to live up to the ideals that their faith professes.
Bundchen, however, called the Church’s teachings “ridiculous” in an interview with a Brazilian newspaper. At one point she made the unsubstantiated claim that in the modern world no one ever waits until marriage before having sex, even apparently calling into question the possibility that a man or woman can remain chaste until marriage.
"Today no one is a virgin when they get married ... show me someone who's a virgin!" she said. She went on, criticizing the Catholic Church’s moral teachings saying, "How is it possible to not want people to use condoms and also not have abortions? It's impossible, I'm sorry." However, in an interview with the Italian edition of “Vanity Fair” that appeared just after the supermodel made her remarks, the Brazilian soccer superstar known as Kaka has said that both he and his wife, Caroline, were virgins when they got married. Kaka, one of Brazil’s most successful soccer players, has long been known for both his outspoken Christian faith and his remarkable good looks.
“The Bible teaches that true love waits until marriage," Kaka told “Vanity Fair”, saying about his marriage, “If our life today is so beautiful, I think it is because we waited."
The time prior to his and his wife’s marriage, during which they conducted a chaste relationships, says Kaka "was important, as it tested our love." The soccer star admitted that it was not easy to stay a virgin until his wedding night, and that even still there are difficulties in living faithfully, saying that “there are always temptations,” but also says that the sacrifices that he and his wife made for each other have been more than worth it.
Gisele Bundchen, who is one of the most popular supermodels in the world, not only called into question the possibility of living chastely and defended the use of contraceptives and abortion, but in a bizarre twist actually indicated that the use of condoms should be “compulsory.”
"It's ridiculous to ban contraceptives,” she said. “You only have to think of the diseases that are transmitted without them. I think it should be compulsory to use a contraceptive."

Hindu appointed to run Christian religion studies

New church college leader says 'proselytization' produces violence...
(ALL UPSIDE DOWN.....)
A college affiliated with a Christian denomination has appointed to head its religion department a practicing Hindu who believes that some forms of Christian ministry produce violence.
Anantanand Rambachan, who has taught religion and philosophy at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn., since 1985, now will become the first non-Christian to head the religion department in the school's 133-year history.
"It's a great honor," Rambachan, a leading figure in Minnesota's Hindu community, told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
But in an interview with Hinduism Today, he wrote of participating in the Pontifical Council in Rome in 2006. "Last year we met in Rome in a joint consultation with the World Council of Churches to discuss conversion. This was the first meeting of a three-year project to study the issue and to develop an acceptable code of conduct. Certain forms of Christian proselytization have given rise to tension and even violence between some religious communities," he said. "We gathered to share our perspectives on this matter and to consider acceptable and unacceptable ways of sharing our faiths in communities. Our discussion was frank and at times difficult, but we agreed that while everyone has a right to invite others to an understanding of their faith, no one has the right to violate others' rights and religious sensibilities. At the same time, all should heal themselves from the obsession of converting others," he wrote.

PS:This is so dangerous....But it's a sign of the times we are in.A lot of people call themselves Christians,but the truth of the matter is that they are not...and that would give enough material to talk in an exclusive another blog!!!There is this pattern I see of "ecumenism" taking place now in the world for quite some time.The notion that we can all hold hands and sing Kumbaya,is simply not going to happen.Can you picture an islamic school hiring a born again christian to teach anything there?Or a buddhist college or seminar hiring a christian to teach them to pray?Could you believe an agnostic association would happily hire a born again christian as a strategy director?There are things that cannot be mixed.They could but to the expense of Compromise and laying down of doctrines and beliefs.It will happen though,and as we approach to the end of these end times we will see this tendence and enthusiasts growing everywhere.About the "so called obsession of converting others" in true christianism,is grossly misunderstood,regarding other beliefs.The thing that drives true born again christians to evangelize is first to obey a commandment in the Word of God of "GO and Tell and make disciples" and the other is that the reality of a real hell will put fire in your bones to go and tell others that there is a WAY to heaven,which is not only to avoid hell but to have Eternal Life in Jesus.
For the regular man it is pure madness but for those of us that are born again,washed by His Precious blood is the driving force of our lives.To share the Eternal Life we have in Him.The Bible also exhorts us to live at peace with all men.The only difference I see between christians and others "Trying to force conversions on people" is that first of all we dont go around torturing and beheading people,we dont loot their possesions or forbid them or walking eating talking or living in certain areas of our countries.We share the Word of God and we pray for those that we would like to find life in Jesus.Of course sharing the Word of God can be offensive to some...That's in the Bible too...But it's because the Word of God has the power to pierce one's heart and to the very marrow of our bones to bring to light the intentions of the hearts.It has the power to bring conviction of sin to our lives thru the Holy Ghost.That's why we feel uncomfortable when somebody shares it with us.That happened to me.I understand.
BUT this is the Only Word that can set us free and forgive our sins.Jesus is the Word(Rev 19:13)And the Word will always cause controversy...Even more,when you stand for Jesus,you'll probably turn to be highly unpopular and rejected.That's alright .That happened to Jesus,why shouldn't it happen to us?
God bless you

BIG BROTHER fears as cars to get black boxes

BLACK boxes that call emergency services automatically after a crash are being installed in cars.
From 2010, new cars in Europe will be fitted with the $1000 devices, to the dismay of some motoring groups. They fear the technology could be used to spy on drivers' movements. The palm-sized devices activate a distress signal after a crash serious enough to trigger the air bag or roll the car.

Sweet Freedom in Christ:EX WITCH.ORG

I am honored to be able to present my testimony at any given moment. I have a passion to see all those bound by the Occult set free in Jesus… My childhood was bitter sweet; a wonderful mother, country home with lots of love, pets and mostly wholesome influences. When my father was home from work and the business trips he took, fear entered with the abuse of alcohol and his apparent stress. I think this fear drove me to search for comfort elsewhere. I remember having a distinct knowledge of Jesus as a child through occasional Sunday School visits and a child’s bible somebody gave as a gift. But it was viewing a Uri Geller documentary when I was 7 that gave me an insatiable appetite for all things on the occult. I was doing séances at 9 and was interactive in paranormal activity;satan was giving me experiences bit by bit to keep the interest alive and growing...

Man's Life is Saved by Bibles in His Pocket

One bullet clipped a 54-year-old Orange Park man's cap, and a second was stopped by a Gideon's Bible in his shirt pocket.
The Florida Times-Union reports that as a man was carrying bags of garbage to a trash bin on Monday morning, two strange men "ambushed him with a rifle" and then fled.
Amazingly, one of the bullets the men fired clipped the victim's cap, and the second was stopped by a Gideons Bible in his shirt pocket.
The report states that the man, who said he was carrying two New Testament Bibles in his shirt pocket to give to friends, was not injured. Police reportedly took the Bibles as evidence.

"Fascinating" Discovery: Brain Activity Declines as Subjects Speak in Tongues

"Our brain imaging research shows us that these subjects are not in control of the usual language centers during this activity, which is consistent with their description of a lack of intentional control while speaking in tongues."
UPI/TN.- Medical scientists at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine have measured regional cerebral blood flow while subjects "spoke in tongues," discovering there was decreased brain activity in the subjects during the process.
"We noticed a number of changes that occurred functionally in the brain," said the principal investigator, Dr. Andrew Newberg, an associate professor of radiology, psychiatry, and religious studies. "Our finding of decreased activity in the frontal lobes during the practice of speaking in tongues is fascinating because these subjects truly believe the Spirit of God is moving through them and controlling them to speak. Our brain imaging research shows us that these subjects are not in control of the usual language centers during this activity, which is consistent with their description of a lack of intentional control, while speaking in tongues."
According to the UPI report, the research appears in the November issue of the journal Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging.

Scientists to create 'frankenbunny' in big research leap

Scientists are planning to create a "frankenrabbit" by fusing together human cells with a rabbit egg.
It is hoped the "chimeric" embryos, which would be 99.9 per cent human and 0.1 per cent rabbit, could lead to breakthroughs in stem cell research which could one day cure diseases such as Alzheimer's or spinal cord injury.
The embryos will allow scientists to perfect stem cell creation techniques without using human eggs.
"If we learn how to do this with animal eggs, we should be able to have more success with human eggs, and I'd much rather know that if we were going to ask women to donate eggs that we were very likely to get stem cells as a result," said Chris Shaw, at the Institute of Psychiatry. "We know this is a huge challenge after Dr Hwang in South Korea failed to get stem cells despite having 2,000 human eggs."
Teams in London, Edinburgh and Newcastle are to submit application to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority this month, requesting licences to create embryos that will be 99.9 per cent human and 0.1 per cent rabbit or cow.
The HFEA is encouraging the applications after legal advice. The embryos will be allowed to grow for only 14 days, at which point they will be cells smaller than a pinhead.

Woman minister re-appointed...as a MAN...???

A woman who has served as minister at St. John's United Methodist Church in Baltimore for five years has been re-appointed to the position – as a man, according to church officials. The announcement came at the Baltimore-Washington annual conference of the UMC, where the former Ann Gordon announced the change to Drew Phoenix, and talked of a "spiritual transformation" since the sex change procedure.
The church's website notes that the group is "inclusive and diverse".
"We embrace our differences as "holy expressions of God's inclusive love for all creation". Our diversity reflects the many facets of God's creation in our age, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, socioeconomic status, work and educational experience, physical and mental abilities, and spiritual needs," the statement said. "Different though we are, we share a faith in a creative Spirit that urges us toward maturity, wisdom, responsibility."
"The gender I was assigned at birth-said Ann Gordon,now Drew Phoenix- has never matched my own true, authentic, "God-given gender identity" … how I know myself," the statement said. "Fortunately, today, "God's gift of medical science" is enabling me to bring my physical body into "alignment" with my true gender."

PS:Well,here is another example of what I was talking about many times before in this blog,about
deception,desensitation,etc.Gender doesn't happen when you are born.I could possible talk a little bit more about that later(embriology) to see the truth of the matter,I think.It's not that when babies are born they are like fresh bread on a conveyer belt at a bakery factory,ready to be packed and put on the shelves,that "magically" somebody puts a label on them"boy or girl".That's ridiculous!!!!
The point is that when somebody wants to "justify" something "WITH or IN the BiBLE" to their gain,they'll find the verse for it!!!A text out of context is a pretext!!!
This "inclusiveness" thing is to talk later and long.It's amazing how much deception is in the minds of people today that call themselves "the church"and ARE NOT!!!!

American Christianity a LUKEWARM church...

Like the lukewarm church at Laodicea that Jesus said in the Book of Revelation He was about to spew out of His mouth, The Barna Group in a recent study assessed American Christianity as neither hot nor cold."Most Americans do not have strong and clear beliefs, largely because they do not possess a coherent biblical worldview," David Kinnaman, president of The Barna Group, said. "That is, they lack a consistent and holistic understanding of their faith. Millions of Americans say they are personally committed to Jesus Christ, but they believe He sinned while on earth."Many believers claim to trust what the Bible teaches, but they reject the notion of a real spiritual adversary or they feel that faith-sharing activities are optional," Kinnaman added. "Millions feel personally committed to God, but they are renegotiating the definition of that deity."One reason beliefs fluctuate, Kinnaman said, is that most Americans hold few convictions about their faith and "have one foot in the biblical camp and one foot outside it.""They say they are committed, but to what? They are spiritually active, but to what end? The spiritual profile of American Christianity is not unlike a lukewarm church that the Bible warns about," Kinnaman said.In a study released May 21, Barna estimated there are 90 million born-again believers nationwide, and within that group are 16 million evangelical Christians, or 7 percent of the adult population. Eighty-three percent of Americans identify themselves as Christians, but only 49 percent of those describe themselves as absolutely committed to Christianity, Barna said.Among other findings:
-- 83 percent of Americans said they had prayed in the last week.
-- 43 percent claimed to have attended a church service.
-- 41 percent said they read the Bible outside of a church service.
-- 20 percent attended Sunday School in the last week.
-- 50 percent said they donated money to a congregation in the past year.
"Most Americans still embrace a traditional view of God, but they are less likely than ever to do so," Barna said in a news release. "Currently two-thirds of Americans believe that God is best described as the all-powerful, all-knowing perfect creator of the universe who rules the world today (66 percent). However, this proportion is lower than it was a year ago (71 percent) and represents the lowest percentage in more than 20 years of similar surveys."

Mass Dalit conversions in Mumbai

Several thousand tribal and Dalit Hindus in India have converted en masse to Buddhism at a ceremony in Mumbai.The ceremony was billed as the largest religious conversion in modern India, but far fewer converted than had been predicted by the organisers. The converts hope to escape the rigid caste system in which their status is the lowest. Right-wing Hindus have often opposed conversion, pushing some Indian states to restrict legal changes of faith.
The ceremony, which was held to mark the 50th anniversary of a leading Dalit leader Bhimrao Ambedkar's conversion to Buddhism, was attended by delegates from several countries with large Buddhist communities, including Sri Lanka, Thailand and Japan.

Mass Holocaust grave found in Ukraine

KIEV, Ukraine - A mass grave holding the remains of thousands of Jews killed by the Nazis has been found in southern Ukraine near the site of what was once a concentration camp, a Jewish community representative said Tuesday.
The grave was found by chance last month when workers were preparing to lay gas pipelines in the village of Gvozdavka-1, near Odessa, said Roman Shvartsman, a spokesman for the regional Jewish community.
Efraim Zuroff, director of the
Israel office of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, said the finding was no surprise: "It underscores the enormous scope of the plans of annihilation of the Nazis and their collaborators in eastern Europe."
"The scope is enormous, the number of places where murders were carried out is very large and that is why even now at this point, so late after the events, graves are still being discovered," he added.

Assyrian and Chaldean Christians Flee Iraq to Neighboring Jordan

AMMAN, JORDAN -- Since the allies' war against Iraq began, neighboring Jordan has received 750,000 refugees. Nobody knows how many of these are Assyrians. Various organizations estimate the number of Assyrians refugees from 30,000 to 150,000 people. Months after the American and allies' invasion of Iraq, a systematic persecution with the purpose of exterminating the ethnic Christian natives in Iraq started, says an article by Haore Sulaiman (http://www.varldenidag.se/.) as reported by AINA (Assyrian International News Agency). Since then, many churches have been bombed, priests have been killed, nuns raped and children kidnapped, according to the latest report, "By God: Six Days in Amman," which has been published by the Assyrian relief organization Mor Afrem Foundation. In the report it is confirmed that whole areas of Iraq are now emptied of Assyrians (Syriacs and Chaldeans). The Dora district outside of Baghdad is an example of this.
"It is hard to see any other reason for the killings than the Christian religion. The Christian minorities are being put even more in between the conflict, since they are seen as allies to the US," says Cristina Chamoun, who is responsible for media outreach for the report.

Be Still and Know ... that you are being deceived.

There is nothing more devious than a lie told with subtlety. Last week, I purchased the Be Still and Know That I am God DVD produced by 20th Century Fox. The cover boasts of such contemplatives as Richard Foster, Dallas Willard, Calvin Miller and Priscilla Shirer, along with some names that may surprise you?Max Lucado, Beth Moore. An acknowledgement list at the end includes Brennan Manning and Dr. Charles Stanley.The advertisement for the video states:
Eight hundred people gathered at Mariner's church in Newport Beach, California for this amazing event that was broadcast live to over 2000 churches nationwide. Richard Foster and Dallas Willard kicked off the evening with an introduction and dialogue on the history of Contemplative Prayer. Priscilla Shirer shared passionately about the vital need to spend time listening to God and Dr. Henry Cloud challenged everyone with practical steps to help incorporate this type of prayer into busy, everyday life. Kendall Payne's soulful "Be Thou My Vision" set apart the close of the evening with Richard Foster leading the group in a time of silent, listening prayer based on a scripture reading from Luke. As one woman shared afterward, "I loved learning about this new kind of prayer that is actually so old from so many different views. There really was something for everyone...
I tried to watch this DVD as if I were a person that knew little about contemplative prayer but had a fair knowledge of Scripture. By the advertisement, I am told that I?m going to be introduced to a new and different way to pray. The video begins by telling me that we all live in a frenzied chaotic world and that Christians are not immune to it. It suggests that we need to spend more time in prayer. Gosh! What a revelation! I spent $15.98 to be told that? .....

Oprah Winfrey's Spirituality

Without question, the most influential practical mystic today is talk show host Oprah Winfrey. Her predominantly female audience, numbering in the tens of millions, looks to her as the source of spiritual inspiration?even more so than church, in many cases.
I realize speaking critically of someone as warm and caring as Oprah might stir angry emotions in many of her viewers. Nonetheless, please keep in mind that with Oprah, as with the others I have written about, her obvious good qualities are not the issue here. While I might admire Oprah as a person, I am gravely concerned about what she promotes.
Somewhere during her career, Oprah read a book titled "Discover The Power Within You" by Unity minister Eric Butterworth. In line with Unity teaching, the book expounded on the Divinity of Man as perceived through mystical practice. Oprah embraced these views so earnestly that she advocated:
"This book changed my perspective on life and religion. Eric Butterworth teaches that God isn't "up there." He exists inside each one of us, and it's up to us to seek the divine within..."

MILLIONS GATHERED TO PRAY ON PENTECOST SUNDAY

Millions Gathered to Pray on Pentecost Sunday
Roughly 400 million Christians are believed to have gathered in more than 200 nations worldwide for numerous Global Day of Prayer (GDOP) events held on Pentecost Sunday.
Although detailed statistics are still being assembled, believers from countries such as Korea, Brazil, South Africa, Nigeria, the United Kingdom and the United States gathered under the prayer banner of 2 Chronicles 7:14. In Nigeria millions gathered in the economic capital of Lagos to pray for their nation and the world just days ahead of their new president taking office. In Dallas, a service hosted by T.D. Jakes of The Potter's House, evangelist Luis Palau and pastor Jack Graham of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Dallas drew many to pray in Reunion Arena. In London tens of thousands of Christians from a multitude of denominations packed into the West Ham United Football Club in East London to pray for their nation and the globe.
GDOP founder Graham Power and 47 others climbed to the top of the largest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, reaching the summit on Pentecost Sunday. They planted a cross, offered prayers of repentance and interceded for revival and restoration around the world. Ninety Days of Blessing follows the GDOP as an opportunity for Christians to not only continue in persistent prayer, but to also become actively involved in outreach ministry and evangelism.

MOROCCAN FAMILY BARRED FROM TOILET

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
A family living in a public toilet in Morocco have spent seven years requesting more hygienic accommodation.
Their pleas fell on deaf ears, and Aze Adine Ould Baja has had to endure the ignominy of having "Sidi toilets" as the official address on his identity papers.
Desperate to do something about their plight, Mr Baja and his wife Khadija Makbout recently went to a local newspaper with their story.
"I was fed up with the situation and I was becoming more and more ill," Mr Baja explained.
"There were lots of vermin in the toilet. My little boy is only seven months old but he is also a Moroccan citizen and deserves better."
But a few days later the local authorities moved in to block up the toilet's entrance with cement and concrete. Mr Baja, his wife and three children now find themselves barred from the only home they had.

WALID SHOEBAT:Ex PLO Terrorist Saved by Grace

"Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend"
Martin Luther King Jr. 1929-1968


Last march I had the chance to meet Walid Shoebat at a Prophecy Conference here in town.Even though the schedule was pretty busy,he managed to sit down with me and talk.A remarkable story of salvation and a peculiar man that now lives for Jesus and is a verbal advocate for Israel.
I invite you all to go and visit his website.I also recommend his books.For those that are still thinking that islam is a religion of "peace" I encourage you to listen to the testimonies in his website and buy his books and read from his own experience what it is to be a true muslim in the Middle East.
It will inspire you and also put you on your knees for the islamic world and jews and christians living in the Middle East.

XXX CHURCH VIDEOS

Here are some videos about this xxx church and its ministry:
ABC World News TonightPorn Sunday
CNN FeaturePorn Sunday

"For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world;but that the world through Him might be saved.He that believeth on Him is not condemned:but he that believeth NOT is condemned already,because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.And this is the condemnation,that the LIGHT is come into the world,and men loved darkness rather than light,because their deeds were evil"(John 3:17-19)

PORN SUNDAY & THE XXX CHURCH


http://www.xxxchurch.com
This ain't your grandma's church for sure,it ain't mine either...BUT sad to say Porn has been creeping in many many christians lives that live in a"lust-like-fantasy-ridden- hidden world".We may not like it the way they present it,and we could debate about that.One thing is for sure:satan has been enslaving thousands of christians in "secret sins" of which they feel"they will never be free".(BIG LIE)
The"father of lies"plays a double game in the minds of many,luring them first into all sorts of "secret sins" and then putting on them the burden of guiltiness and the yoke of bondage.
Well the truth of it all folks,is that THERE IS TOTAL DELIVERANCE in the name of Jesus!!!
There is no sin greater or worse than the other.Sin is SIN and has to be dealt with ASAP.Period.
I understand that for people bonded by pornography and in the process of walking back in purity they will need accountability towards somebody in the Body of Christ.
Even though it can be "shocking,disgusting...."whatever name we can name this XXX ministry,and may be this is not the kind of traditional ministry we would like,I rejoice in the fact that are many people that the Lord is pulling out of those flames and saving and cleaning them and giving them a new life.
We may think of people involved in the Porn industry as disgusting and I think we are right.They are.BUT,in my Bible it says that Jesus died for them too in the Cross of Calvary,and somebody HAS TO TAKE THE GOSPEL TO THEM.
May be I will upset somebody with these comments,BUT maybe....just may be because I personally wasn't born in a christian home and was so lost in the occult when the Lord saved my soul,that I have a little different perspective of the issue.
If you that are reading were born and raised in a christian home,Praise God for that!!!you probably didn't have to go to the depths that people like me went to.BUT the TRUTH is that You needed a Saviour too.The faith of your grandparents and parents COULDNT and CANNOT save you,you needed or you need to REPENT from your sins like anybody else.
What the wonderful heritage of your family did is that those grandma's prayers for sure kept you and were key for your salvation.No doubt about it.
I understand if you get upset about this post.
I thank God that back in 1986,God stirred up the heart of an ex-gay young man that had just been saved,to bring me the Gospel that saved my soul.
It wasn't in a church.It was eating pizza at a jewish friends house,that was so scared of me succeeding in committing suicide(cause I had tried already 3 times...) that arranged the meeting.I was a goth then,but when this young man started to talk to me about Jesus love for me,my heart for the first time in my life started melting the exterior hardness of it,and several months later I finally got saved.
Remember the people involved in this ministry in prayer.They are battling with demonic strongholds everyday!!!!
God bless you!!!
