    The Movies That Changed Me: ALTERED STATES (1980)

    in Film

    When I first saw Ken Russell's ALTERED STATES I was alternately bored, confused, repulsed, and horrified. With each successive viewing this film engaged me on increasingly complex levels, educating me in equal measures in the ways of cinema, philosophy, love, and and spirituality. As films that changed me go ALTERED STATES may be the most expansive reversal from hating a film to loving it that I have yet encountered.

    The Legal Show: The Case of Kelly Rutherford

    in Pop Culture

    Attorney Sarah Avraham and writer Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day.


    The audience should know that although Ms. Avraham is a licensed attorney, she is not offering legal advice in any capacity, is not establishing an attorney/client relationship with anyone listening to the show, and recommends that any listener of the show consult a local attorney for any legal advice they may require.


    This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.  Kelly Rutherford was granted sole custody of her children, who were at the time living in Monaco.  Her ex-husband then stated that Monaco, and not the United States, had jurisdiction over the custody case.  In the end, who is right?  How will the Court rule?  Tune in to hear our hosts answer these and other questions on this issue

    God and Our American Freedom

    in Religion

    In the United States of America, we enjoy a lot of freedoms that other countries don't.  We have a Constitution that was written to articulate these rights.  Is it really a big deal if those rights - for instance, the 1st ammendment, 2nd ammendment, marriage (one man + one woman) - are taken away or tampered with?  What's the impact REALLY?  Are we making too big a deal over this stuff?  What does God have to say about it?  Listen this week as Dr Pauline & Catherine talk about this very important and all-too-timely subject. 


    As always, we welcome your comments and questions through Facebook (Dunamas Center Ministries), and Twitter (@YourDunamasLife).


    ANNOUNCEMENTS: 



    Watch for Dr Pauline's new book, "Won't Somebody Please Hear Me?  Healing from Birth Traumatomology Syndrome"...Coming soon!

    A Better Person As President Is On Blog Talk Radio At 5:30pm - Curtis Clinton

    in Elections

    The Title says it. Why? It makes sense. I come from your place, or very close to it, Even if we do not agree completely, we are closer than the others. I am not campaigning for your money, am not a Politician, will be among the best smart Commander-In-Chiefs, even protecting our military men and women. Your day to day is closer to ours and we live it with nearly similar DNA: Daily Numerous Adversities; Daily Numerous Ailments; Daily Numerous Aspirations. I know an unknown person has no chance to be seen by you. I know that its something stupid to do this. It may even look more than stupid. But it’s not that stupid when you consider all the stupid things that are going on right now or that have just happened. Please see me in a better smart light. I say things that you may not like or want to hear. But they are said for our own good. They need to be said and brought to light and right. There are some well known


    people running for President. I am not one of them. I am one among us, if you can understand that in all its fullness. It is surmised that when you reach the White House, things change you. Except for becoming better, I will not change the good, right, smart within me or what must and should be done. I want much better for all, even you; our cohabitant animals: our earth. The White House belongs to you, with a person of the people, ordinary if necessary and not to a Political Party. If you see it that way, could you and will you put to-gether 120,000,000 Write-In Ballots for a Presidency being for us, with just one of us in there seeing to a better United States and for Americans of all blood types of O's, A's, B's and AB's. If that many are cast, we will not have a divided country or Congress. One willing caring for all doing person can start a better world. You can begin with such a President. This idea is for you, thanks, bwell, c2it, i am Curt Clinton, I am call’d c2.

    The Collision of Faith & Politics! Confederate Flags, Obamacare, & Gay Marriage

    in Politics Conservative

    Confederate Flags, Obamacare, & Gay Marriage RESOLVED!


    It has been a busy week huh? Lots of angst on the part of many in this country. 


    The White House is lighted in LGBT rainbow colors at the command of the Manchurian president and state's rights and individual rights are apparently nullified by the opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States. 


    If you don't support gay marriage being forced upon the states, you are branded a hater. Even though you don't hate homosexuals.


    If you do not view the Confederate Flag as an offense, you are branded a racist.  Even though you don't hate black people.


    If you do not support Obamacare being forced upon you, you are branded a neanderthal.   Even though you studied obamacare and you know the truth.  You are educated.


    If you are a Christian and you disagree with the left you are branded a bigot, racist, religious zealot... But are you?


    What does this have to do with you? What has this to do with "the Church?”  You say you don’t have an opinion on Gay Marriage because it doesn’t affect you?  I will show you why YOU are the one impacted the most by corrupt activist judges on not just gay marriage being forced upon all 50 states, but obamacare…  If you are a gun owner, you want someday to own a gun, guess what?!  This ruling dramatically impacts you!  But you don’t care, so big deal right?  Slow down slam dancer, stuff is beginning to break loose and you aren’t ready.


    In these power packed minutes I will weave the golden and Scarlet thread of Yeshua and Scripture through modern culture to discern what the Bible says, and what I, as a Black Robe Regiment Preacher believe and recommend for "the church”  and for the citizens of this once great country, the United States of America!
