I would like to see the Venn Diagrams of both the Religious and Non-Religious and Vacc'ed vs Not Vacc'ed
In the time of the greatest pandemic fear frenzy, when I paid someone to deliver my groceries 25 miles from the store and promptly wiped them down with the precious 6 lysol wipes we treated like gold, I went to a Mennonite Bakery which was near. As we went up to the window we were amazed none of the children had masks, none of the adults. Through my own fear badge of non-courage I asked the father how/why/who/what/where. IF its your time to go, its your time to go the father calmly explained.
Dont forgot this is the Tapas app phase of existence. If you are a true Christian; why fear any chance to reunite with your maker. If making a decision based on fear or your own mortality, rethink that decision...reflect on the big picture....true faith is courageous.
I have always been in awe of the Faith shown to me that day. It was a great lesson out of many lessons during the pandemic. I have tried to live less scared for myself and my family. I have tried to make less decisions in which the focus is about our time on this pre-cursor to the big game.
Science fails to recognize the single most
Potent element of human existence
Letting the reins go to the unfolding
Is faith, faith, faith, faith.
More good news: Charleston, SC, a city described as 'moderate' elected a Republican mayor William Cogswell, for the first time since 1877! https://www.theepochtimes.com/article/this-city-elected-a-republican-mayor-for-the-first-time-since-1877-post-5537511 The race, although non-partisan, was described as boiling down to many of the same issues facing many cities: crime, infrastructure and 'rapid development' (which I assume to be massive apartments and more 15 minute city development). Cogswell won by ~600 votes.
Everything in the news is a lie.
Also, childhood vaccines cause most diseases.
Infection by injection.
Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” So they removed the stone. Then Jesus raised His eyes, and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. And I knew that You always hear Me; but because of the crowd standing around I said this, so that they may believe that You sent Me.” And when He had said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth.” The man who had died came forth, bound hand and foot with wrappings, and his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.”

Regarding Christmas - A weary world rejoices...
Imagine if you will, A virus so smart
It attacks every four years during presidential elections.
I choose hope and light. Sitting in an airport right now observing the isolation and loneliness. I make it a point to say good morning to everyone. The reactions to such a simple gesture are amazing. It doesn’t cost a thing, but has the potential to make a huge impact. People need people. God is good all the time. All the time God is good.
Jeff, in yesterday's post, you said, "moving the chains down the field is exactly what we need to do to win."
My husband, who is a wee bit black-pilled, said there is no way to win.
This got me thinking about people's definitions for winning. His definition is jail/capital punishment for perpetrators. For me, in addition to punishment, I would want to see history books recognize what really happened in all this mess.
Jeff, what is your definition of winning? Justice is obviously a part of it, but does your definition include other aspects?
Space weather from the Sun causes Earth's magnetosphere to be "pulled" , putting pressure on volcanoes and the ground underneath. On top of that, our magnetosphere has been weakening by 5% per decade.
Here's a good source I follow for Space weather news:
“For the life of me, I have no idea what the Pope has to say about climate science. His involvement makes one suspect that the whole climate thing might be more fairly described as religious instead of “scientific.”
Yes. As a practicing Traditional Latin Catholic, I sadly and prayerfully acknowledge the infiltration of the Church. One grace from God is that this attempted overthrow of the Faith will not succeed and a countermovement is growing stronger each day.
We have clergy speaking out and unveiling the evil. Thank you, Archbishop Vigano, Bishops Strickland, Schneider and others, Cardinals Burke, Mueller, Zen etc and multiple voices from the priesthood. These men might be removed from their positions, by Francis, but their voices ring out more strongly.
God is allowing the tares to grow with the wheat. Painful and frightening to observe but His triumph is foretold. I will not be forced out from the faith of my fathers even if God moves His Church underground.
You know, I read your daily blogs and today, after reading maybe the first seven or so paragraphs, I started thinking that really smart people don’t go into journalism. Really smart people do what you do and condescend themselves into filling the vacuum corporate media creates. Thank you! How can we coalesce people like you and others into a media force that will actually do the job the Fourth Estate is supposed to do? You, The Free Press, The New York Sun, groups trying to make up for the huge slack intentionally left by the bought, narrative -supporting media, how can a truth-telling media empire be started?
I’m all for medical freedom & getting rid of vaccine mandates for children & anyone else, but 2 thoughts:
1) There should be “exemption PERIOD”. Not for only religious reasons, not for only medical reasons. Bodily autonomy & our God given right to say N-O should be enough
2) With all of the 3rd world illegal aliens & their 3rd world DISEASES flooding over our borders, it wouldn’t surprise me if there are upticks in formerly-eradicated or rare (in the States) diseases. Of course, that will NEVER be blamed on our coddled illegals; as w/ everything else nowadays, legit American citizens will be blamed for refusing the jabs du jour
Speaking as someone who did trust "the science" for vaccines prior to 2020/2021, I can understand people being afraid of Measles or such after decades of people getting traditional vaccines against them. I remember in the 2010's some nearby mega church (prosperity gospel) known for being very anti-vaccine had an outbreak after some missionaries returned from overseas. They dropped their position after that. So - I can see people being afraid.
Of course, we have a _very_ different vaccine schedule than what most of us grew up with. I got my 3-4 or so as a kid but before the vaccine makers were protected from lawsuits. The schedule today is beyond out of control - and some proven harmful shots are still on some of these "mandatory" schedules - like Gardisil.
For the states not allowing a religious exemption, CT is a recent addition to that. They did away with that shortly after the mRNA shots started coming out. :(
Just spent the weekend in Nashville and Franklin TN. We went to a sold out screening of Christmas Vacation last night. This was the 5th sold out screening in a week or so. About half the attendees were dressed in various costumes from the movie- Eddie, Mr and Mrs Shirley, Clark W Griswold etc. it was quite a raucous event w everyone parroting lines and singing along. People are definitely ready!
Per earthquakes, the four gas giant planets, Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune are on one side of Earth, the sun is on the other side, the first time since 79AD. Their magnetic fields will have an effect on Earth; one might conclude an increase in earthquakes and volcanos is likely. BTW, Mount Vesuvius blew in 79AD, no way to know how many others did too in that time frame.
There is so much "nice" happening all around unexpectedly. My husband and I were in Richmond on Friday to see our son's high school band perform for the governor's tree lighting ceremony. It had been raining, we were running late and we wandering all over trying to find a place to park. In short, I looked like something the cat dragged in. Governor Youngkin and his staff couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating to make sure everyone who wanted to get their picture with him did. No rushing at all for me, the last person in line. And he and his wife were so nice. Such a shame Virginia only allows one 6 year term.
