    A look at religious shunning

    in Religion

    Religious shunning bars association with people who have been labeled as apostates, whistleblowers, dissidents or anyone the religion perceives as a threat or source of conflict.   Rob Robertson’s guest, Janette, has experienced shunning and will discuss this practice and the damage that it can do.   After twenty years of involvement in Scientology, she and her husband concluded that the organization was a sham.  They left … and were ostracized by the entire Clearwater, Florida Scientology Community. They lost their jobs, friends and even contact with some of their family members.  ”It was a very public witch hunt against us,” Janette says.   Since then, Janette and her husband met many people from various religious backgrounds, all with similar stories of shunning and corruption. Janette created a website called Truth Rundown  to expose the abuses and corruption going on in not only Scientology, but in several religious organizations and cults such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints (FLDS).   Please visit GodDiscussion.net for more information and links.   ~~~   World Cult Watch, a weekly program that airs every Sunday night, is intended to not only offer news and information about cults, but to provide a forum where cult survivors — and those wanting to leave — have a chance to talk and receive emotional support.  Rob runs the “World Cult Watch” website.

    NIKKI HALEY=GOP GUTS - Response to SOTU took political guts...one of the best

    in Politics

    Nikki Haley, Republican governor of South Carolina, gave one of the best GOP responses to the State of the Union address.


    She spoke about the need for governing in the middle, shunning the noise masquerading as knowledge from the extremists of her own party.  It took courage.  It's what leadership is supposed to look like.


    She spoke of the members of the S. Carolina church that after suffering the tragedy of the mass shooting, did not resort to extremism hate speech.  Instead, they rose above the tragedy and put their character and strong values to work, urging peace in the face of violence.  


    They were our better angles.  They were our role models.


    Nikki Haley made remarks such as;


    ‘We need to recognize our contributions to the erosion of the public trust’


    “While Democrats in Washington bear much responsibility for the problems facing America today, they do not bear it alone,” Nikki Haley said. “There is more than enough blame to go around."


    “We as Republicans need to own that truth. We need to recognize our contributions to the erosion of the public trust in America’s leadership, we need to accept that we’ve played a role in how and why our government is broken, and then we need to fix it.”

    Curtis Harwell Discusses The Benefits of Protein

    in Fitness

    High-protein, low-carbohydrate diets are the hottest thing since sliced flank steak, and every food marketer in the known universe appears to want a piece of the protein pie.


    Body builders are snatching, grabbing, and gulping down protein shakes. Dieters are gobbling down protein bars (and shunning pasta) in hopes of quick weight loss.


    The Power of Protein


    It's easy to understand the excitement. Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. Hair and nails are mostly made of protein. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.
