    How to Pray for Evil Rulers

    in Spirituality

    How to Pray for Evil Rulers [LIVE call -in show for Thursday 04/23/15]


    Scripture tells us to pray for our national and regional leaders. In fact, it's rather detailed about how and why to do this. But I sometimes hear this from Christians: "How can I pray for this man who's in office now? I can't stand him, and he's doing a terrible job!"  Yet 2000 years ago, the Apostle Paul writes "Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life ..." (I Tim. 2:1-2)


    Now in case your wondering how and why you should pray for our current leaders, and how you can possibly offer God thanks for them, keep in mind who ruled the Roman Empire at the time that Paul wrote this: it was Nero and his appointed henchmen. (You've heard of Nero, haven't you, dear Christian?) Nero was preceded by Claudius and by Emperor Caligula. Look up Caligula on the Internet for some perspective on the evil of our national leaders today. This was the time in which Paul wrote.


    So what's your verdict, Christian?  Are the Scriptures irrelevant here? Or had St. Paul gone "soft in the head" when he wrote this? How and why should we pray and be thankful for our national leaders today? Tune in and take note! Your host is Rev. Rick Anderson, on "Jewish Roots", each Thursday at 9:30 pm DST.

    The Caligula Effect -- Is It Nature or Nurture?

    in Fun

    As if we don't have enough to gossip about...  The tabloids are a-twitter over the latest revelations in the Weinergate scandal.  Arnold Schwartzenegger  is breathing a sigh of relief that his name has finally been superceded in the headlines. John Edward is on the hot seat again for his alleged misuse of campaign funds to hide his illicit love affairs.  New York State seems to have more than it's share of sexually risky politicos recently.  Now Donald Trump is calling for Rep. Weiner to resign.... Donald?  As if!  LOL  What all this imbroglio has done is illuminate the problem with what has been called the "Caligula Effect."  Journalists and mental health practitioners and pundits alike have been wondering aloud about why do men in powerful positions in politics risk their careers on often sleazy sexual liasons?  Social networking has only served as a better means to catch them in the act.  Who do they think they're fooling besides themselves?  That is the question!  Join Ken and Beth as they discuss the ins and outs of the Caligula Effect and whether men in positions of power, authority and/or wealth are more likely to cheat on their wives than other men.  Is some of this kind of behavior hard-wired into men?  Why can some men control their urges and others can't.  Let's talk about it.  Call in and share your opinion with us.

    Amanda Ruggeri of Revealed Rome

    in Travel


    Planning a trip to Rome?  You might feel a little overwhelmed.  I get it.  And I hope Revealed Rome helps.  But I know that, at this point, the number of posts I have might be as overwhelming as, well, Rome itself!


    So let Revealed Rome serve as your guide to the posts that are most helpful in planning your Rome trip.  I'll be updating this as I continue to write new posts, so check back as you travel plan.


    And remember, if you just want to talk to me to get the most up-to-the-minute personalized advice possible-on not just Rome, but all of Italy-I offer private, one-hour travel consulting sessions(much cheaper than a travel agent).


    I'm a freelance journalist and travel writer living in Rome, Italy.  I have written for the New York Times, Guardian, Atlantic, AFAR, National Geographic Traveller, Mother Jones, World Policy Journal, Lexus, and Mariner, among other publications.  You can read some of my recent work under articles on RevealedRome.com.  I was also a contributor for Fodor's Rome 2012.  My photographs, some of which you can see at my site Exposed Italy, have been published in a variety of publications, including the Guardian and the BBC's Olive Magazine.  My film work includes hosting a documentary on Caligula for the History Channel and hosting a travel film on Rome for MSN U.K.


    Before moving to Rome, I studied history at Yale and completed a M.Phil in international relations at Cambridge.  I went on to become a political reporter in Washington D.C. for U.S. News & World Report.  You can find out more about me at amandaruggeri.com.
