SORT BY Relevancy
Has the Non Aggression Principle failed? The filmed execution of journalist James Foley and the apparent destruction of minority groups in Iraq at the hands of the savage ISIS fundamentalists has even steadfast Libertarians questioning their view on foreign policy. Are the interventionists now vindicated? Is it time to just admit that Lindsey Graham loves us and wants us to be safe ? Should we drool and shit our pants in fear ? Isn't it just time to get on the freedom train, eat our freedom fries , suckle the chaffed nipples of the nanny state , pull the warm blanket of homeland security over our eyes and be grateful that the sages of the U.S. govt. are hard at work protecting us all ?
Anastasia and Jack return with new stories that reflect the struggles and failures that lead –or not – to the kinds of successes that derive from the application of the principles of the “The Lean In Legacy Template.”
In this episode Anastasia leads off with a story from a recent experience where she, of an Observant Jewish family, collided, head-on, with a devout Catholic woman. For a time the interminable, age-old conflicts of Christians and Jews reared their ugly heads. But not for long as New Horizons’ Board Member, Sue deVeer, a Quaker educator whose timely intervention was welcomed by both women, gently guided the two to the safe shores of unity.
Again the on-air portion of this show continues with a conference call forum discussion. Guests are welcome to join in at: 712.432.0600, access code 640883 (also recorded).
Throughout Anglo-American history, the Religious Society of Friends or “Quakers” has played a political advocacy role that is often overlooked and undervalued. For instance, did you know that Pennsylvania was established based on Quaker principles by William Penn in the 17th century? And that he considered it an experiment to have equality amongst all people?
Through the centuries, Quakers have been involved with politics, looking to improve the quality of life for all. Yet today, we rarely hear about their influence or impact as described by their religion. For instance, famous Quakers who have had tremendous impact include Benjamin Franklin, Susan B Anthony, Herbert Hoover and Richard Nixon.
Today, we speak with special guest, Dot Richards about her personal experience as a political advocate and how her faith supports her work. We’ll also touch on Friends meetings and how silence can be used to maintain a safe environment in which to speak.
Join us today for a special Lunch w Louden, guest hosted by Kathleen Morgan and Tamra Temple, assisted by Marianne Castiglia and Debilyn Molineaux.
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.
When I was preaching in Philadelphia, a Quaker called out for a sign. I told him to be still. After the sermon, he again asked for a sign. I told the congregation the man was an adulterer; that a wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and that the Lord had said to me in a revelation, that any man who wanted a sign was an adulterous person. "It is true," cried one, "for I caught him in the very act," which the man afterwards confessed, when he was baptized. (HC 5:268.)
(Joseph Smith, Discourses of the Prophet Joseph Smith, compiled by Alma P. Burton, p.219)
I told of an incident in 1971 at Ft. Sam Houston, on guard duty, when an audible voice of great power spoke and my companion on gaurd duty, dropped his baton and fled, thus deserting his post, and was not converted by the display. Also tells of a man who said "if you can tell me what my problem is, I will 'join your church'", whereupon he was reproved for seeking a sign that he might believe, and the Holy Ghost immediately revealed to me the man was a sodomite which I reported to his face, and who had performed the act in view of the apartment court complex in a window the previous night. He did not repent and did not fulfill his promise, though he would have been rejected for baptism as being foul and unworthy. So signs do not convert. Pharoah was not coverted by signs but watched his army drown in the Red Sea.
Listen in to Fieldstone Common this week as host Marian Pierre-Louis talks to author Diane Rapaport about her book The Naked Quaker: True Crimes and Controversies from the Courts of Colonial New England.
The word “Puritan” conjures up dour images of 17th-century New Englanders. We rarely think of Puritans as people who had fun, or sex. Our ancestors used different words, but human nature was not so different 350 years ago.
In the title story, a Quaker woman walks into Puritan Sunday meeting and drops her dress to protest actions of the colonial authorities. The Naked Quaker takes us into the lives of our ancestors, revealing how they behaved and spoke. A highway robber threatens his victim: “I will take you by your eyelids and make your heels strike fire!” A mysterious woman wields “enthusiastical power” over married men, who break the law to follow her.
Diane Rapaport, a former trial lawyer, has made a new career as a historical consultant, genealogist, award-winning author and popular speaker. She offers an unusual combination of expertise and experience—in law, history and genealogy—and she enjoys discovering and telling the stories of our past. She specializes in court records and other historical resources of New England, and her current research focuses on African Americans and Native Americans in the colonial period. She is also the author of New England Court Records: A Research Guide for Genealogists and Historians.

TRIGGER WARNING: Some or all of the discussion in this episode may be triggering to individuals.
In this second part, join RevKess and Kalisara as we expand on the topic of sex abuse in the Pagan community. We will be looking at the concept of consent, as well as talking with a few guests.
Cat Chapin-Bishop became a psychotherapist in 1986, and she has had about 20 years of experience as a counselor specializing in work with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. She served as the first Chair of Cherry Hill Seminary's Pastoral Counseling Department, and designed the earliest version of CHS's Boundaries and Ethics course, which is still central to the program there. Cat has been a Pagan since 1987, and a Quaker as well as a Pagan since 2001. Her writings can be found online at Quaker Pagan Reflections (http://quakerpagan.blogspot.com/).
Amber Moon, a Pagan police officer and one of the leaders of Officers of Avalon (http://www.officersofavalon.com/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/138693635354/), was to be discussing how to report abuse, but was unable to make it due to a work issue.
We will also be taking a look at the problem arising from the Florida Pagan Gathering's choice to include Gavin & Yvonne Frost in their guest lineup. The Frosts published a book in the 70s in which they explicitely encouraged the sexual initiation of minors. To date, they have not recanted this (they, in fact, republished the book with this concept intact), nor have they stopped promoting the idea in workshops and presentations.
