SORT BY Relevancy
We, the undersigned, are gathered here today for a historic initiative to inspire spiritual and practical action by all global faiths and people of good will everywhere to eradicate modern slavery across the world by 2020 and for all time.I n the eyes of God*, each human being is a free person, whether girl, boy, woman or man, and is destined to exist for the good of all in equality and fraternity. Modern slavery, in terms of human trafficking, forced labour and prostitution, organ trafficking, and any relationship that fails to respect the fundamental conviction that all people are equal and have the same freedom and dignity, is a crime against humanity. We pledge ourselves here today to do all in our power, within our faith communities and beyond, to work together for the freedom of all those who are enslaved and trafficked so that their future may be restored. Today we have the opportunity, awareness, wisdom, innovation and technology to achieve this human and moral imperative.

What is the source of moral law?
Ravi Zacharias states: "If there is evil, there is good. If there is good there has to be a moral law, and if there is a moral law, there has to be a transcendent moral law giver."
The law of Thelema was developed in the early 1900s by Aleister Crowley, an English writer and ceremonial magicain. This law states: "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Love is the law, love under will."
Moral relativism is the view that moral judgments are true or false only relative to some particular standpoint (for instance, that of a culture or a historical period) and that no standpoint is uniquely privileged over all others.
Richard Dawkins: DNA neither cares nor knows. DNA just is. And we dance to its music.
King James Bible:
Psalm 40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
Hebrews 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
Hebrews 10:14-18 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
Jeremiah 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Same sex marriage...YES or NO??? This is the question that the Supreme Court will be deciding in the late Spring. However, the Court is nnot the only organized body that has to make a decision...How about our religious institutions??? The Church, with its many denominations, Judaism and Islam, will be facing the same moral dilemma and question of conscience. How will they handle the delicate balance after generations of preaching and sermonizing that marriage is between a man and a woman...Adam and Eve and not Adam and Steve!!! How do you feel about this??? Te Rebellious Rev and The Doc want to know...Call us at 646-595-3275 and bring your coffeel

Hypocrisy on the Democrat side:
How can President Obama and other Democrats say they are Christians, followers of the teachings of Jesus Christ, and advocate for the act of homosexuality and lesbianism? Then turn and point fingers at republicans for being insensitive to the poor and needy.
Hypocrisy on the Republican side:
Why did Billy Graham scrubb the Mormon religion off his web site as a cult religion, so that he could endorse Mitt Romney for President? Why did Cardinal Dolan take the lead in criticizing Obamacare for forcing the Church to pay for abortions and contraceptives, when he was paying insurance for these services up to ten years before Obamacare?
Dr. Dean Posey, author of the book 12 Gifts We Can't Afford to Lose, believes that much of the depression and anxiety plaguing today’s society stems from our unwillingness to simply follow the rules of a moral life instead of trying to make them up as we go. Based on the character and life of Noah, Posey lists the core values of morality for us. If one focuses on hope, faith, patience, friendship, righteousness, family and more, he says, living a moral life is not as complicated as one might think. Tune in to listen and give his concepts time to soak in.
According to wealthinsight.com, 1.1 million new millionaires have been created since President Obama has been in Office. Between 2009 and 2012, during and right after the worst economic downturn in the history of our country, since the great depression, millionaires are being created at an alarming rate. As a matter of fact Wealthinsight predicts the creation of close to 500,000 millionaires in 2014 alone. By 2017, according to wealthinsight, which tracks millionaires and billionaires all over the world, we will have 9.5 million millionaires up from 5.2 million as of now. With 9.5 million millionaires in possession of 39 Trillion dollars, paying their fair share, we could.........(fill in the blank)

Let’s engage in thought provoking topics and courageous conversations of “Disaster Awareness for Community Preparedness”.
Pedophilia the next 'sexual-rights' revolution? We are going to talk about what may be the greatest moral crisis To date: Once considered taboo, psychologists are beginning to walk down the same path LGBT activists established more than 50 years ago, insisting that pedophilia is an inborn “sexual orientation,” not a learned sexual behavior. If people are born with a sexual attraction to minors, the argument goes, their “orientation” should be accepted as normative and not stigmatized.
Join us for a conversation with experts on the Vile Vortices, including SA McNally and James Moses.
You’re probably familiar with the Bermuda Triangle, but did you know it has eleven siblings?
According to cryptozoologist and paranormal expert Ivan Sanderson (1911-1973), there are twelve spots on the globe that are areas where ships, planes or people go missing for unexplained reasons. He called these navigational hazards the Vile Vortices.
Sanderson’s “Bermuda Triangle” is more of a trapezoid, but it’s still the best known spot for mysterious ship and plane disappearances. Oddly enough, despite its reputation, there are only a handful of actual known disappearances in the triangle. The most well known is Flight 19, a military training flight. Fourteen airmen vanished, and the search squadron sent to look for them also vanished, claiming an additional thirteen airmen. Flight 19 is well known in part because it was featured prominently in Stephen Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Although the Bermuda Triangle is better known in the Western world, the Devil’s Sea (also called the Taiwan Triangle) south of Japan is also a source of missing ships and planes, and appears on Sanderson’s map (upper left corner, difficult to make out). The Devil’s Sea has long been known to Asian sailors, and according to some reports, shortly after World War II the Japanese fleet lost several ships in the area prompting the government to declare the region unsafe for travel.
