    Will American Pastor and the faithful stand up for persecuted Christians?

    in Politics Conservative

    American Christians, less crass than culpably indifferent, insist it's up to the legal and political authorities in the affected countries do something about persecution. But this turns a blind eye to the unhappy fact that in most of the 87 nations where Christians are a minority, persecution of them is sanctioned and even encouraged by lawmakers and judges.


     


    The plight of believers gets little attention on the global stage, leaving many Christians throughout North America unaware, and therefore, indifferent to what’s going on in the body of Christ. Mention persecution, and eyes glaze over.


     


    Despite all these atrocities, exoduses, and even genocides, the mainstream media seems to spend every available moment airing images of displaced Palestinians and demonizing Israel for trying to defend itself. Yet Israel does not kill Palestinians because of their religion or any other personal aspects. It does so in the context of being rocketed and trying to defend itself from terrorism.


     On the other hand, all the crimes being committed by Muslims against Christians are simply motivated by religious hate, because the Christians are Christian.


     It is to the mainstream media's great shame that those who slaughter, behead, crucify, and displace people for no other reason than because they are Christian, rarely if ever get media coverage, while a nation such as Israel, which kills only in the context of self-defense, and not out of religious bigotry, is constantly demonized

    Consecration in multiple "tierras" should paleros do it?

    in Spirituality

    is a recent trend from a few decades, it happens from the 80's with the differents Cuban exoduses and the trade raise. Since then, and up to today, usual thing is to devote in a place and later in another. Collecting degrees without really knowing if all these steps are right in this specific person Nzila. Theses days I see the horror of Babalawos or Santeros who are expecting for official respect as a major religiously, respect from a Ngangulero; words from José M. Beceiro


    in the old days a ngangulero was content with being an ngangulero. lived and died without seeking anything else.time to expose that popular myth.

    PALM TREES IN THE SNOW by Gloria Maria Strassburger

    in Entertainment

    Co Host: Fernan Hernandez, author of The Cubans: Our Legacy in the United States: A collective biography


    In the author's words:


    Havana, 1939—The glamorous capital city of an alluring Caribbean island, the year that Rolando Fernández and Ninina Perea meet and fall in love. Strassburger begins her story with her parents’ courtship in the golden years of pre-Castro Cuba. Her memoir recounts how her father’s mental collapse and the communist revolution of 1959 uprooted her privileged childhood, both physically and emotionally.


    While providing substantial background on Fidel Castro’s political revolt, Strassburger focuses on her family’s experiences: The appropriation of their wealth and properties by the rebel regime. How families were torn apart as children were taken from their parents, forced to undergo communist indoctrination in Russia. Strassburger narrowly escaped such a fate through Operation Peter Pan, one of the largest political exoduses of children in history. Fearing for her future, her parents sent her out of Cuba—alone—in 1961. She relates the terror of being separated from her family and living in a foreign country without them.


    With affecting detail, Strassburger depicts her family’s disintegration as her father spiraled into schizophrenia and communism forced them into exile. They left behind their loved ones, their homes, and their identities to face the hardships of a new life in the United States. Palm Trees in the Snow is a family’s story of love, sacrifice, and survival. It is the author’s tribute to a way of life lost forever and the embracing of a new one in America.
