FL 2017-2018 Teacher of the Year Bluntly Explains Why School Violence Is Out of Control!

Kelly Guthrie Raley has been teaching for 20 years and currently educates kids at Eustis Middle School in Lake County, Florida.

2018 Teacher of the year

The day after the horrific shooting that took place at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, Kelly posted this rant on Facebook that has since gone viral. It is short, not very sweet and certainly hits the nail on the head!

In the post, she talked about parental responsibility, compassion, and respect…and more than 823,000 people have “liked” the post and agreed with it, while more than 649,000 have shared it with others.

Here’s what Mrs. Raley had to say.

Okay, I’ll be the bad guy and say what no one else is brave enough to say, but wants to say. I’ll take all the criticism and attacks from everyone because you know what? I’m a TEACHER.

I live this life daily. And I wouldn’t do anything else! But I also know daily I could end up in an active shooter situation.

Until we, as a country, are willing to get serious and talk about mental health issues, lack of available care for the mental health issues, lack of discipline in the home, horrendous lack of parental support when the schools are trying to control horrible behavior at school (oh no! Not MY KID. What did YOU do to cause my kid to react that way?), lack of moral values, and yes, I’ll say it-violent video games that take away all sensitivity to ANY compassion for others’ lives, as well as reality TV that makes it commonplace for people to constantly scream up in each others’ faces and not value any other person but themselves, we will have a gun problem in school.

Our kids don’t understand the permanency of death anymore!!!

I grew up with guns. Everyone knows that. But you know what? My parents NEVER supported any bad behavior from me. I was terrified of doing something bad at school, as I would have not had a life until I corrected the problem and straightened my ass out.

My parents invaded my life. They knew where I was ALL the time. They made me have a curfew. They made me wake them up when I got home. They made me respect their rules. They had full control of their house, and at any time could and would go through every inch of my bedroom, backpack, pockets, anything! Parents: it’s time to STEP UP! Be the parent that actually gives a crap! Be the annoying mom that pries and knows what your kid is doing.

STOP being their friend. They have enough “friends” at school. Be their parent. Being the “cool mom” means not a damn thing when either your kid is dead or your kid kills other people because they were allowed to have their space and privacy in YOUR HOME.

I’ll say it again. My home was filled with guns growing up. For God’s sake, my daddy was an 82nd Airborne Ranger who lost half his face serving our country. But you know what? I never dreamed of shooting anyone with his guns. I never dreamed of taking one! I was taught respect for human life, compassion, rules, common decency, and most of all, I was taught that until I moved out, my life and bedroom wasn’t mine…it was theirs. And they were going to know what was happening because they loved me and wanted the best for me.

There. Say that I’m a horrible person. I didn’t bring up gun control, and I will refuse to debate it with anyone. This post wasn’t about gun control. This was me, loving the crap out of people and wanting the best for them. This was about my school babies and knowing that God created each one for greatness, and just wanting them to reach their futures.

It’s about 20 years ago this year I started my teaching career. Violence was not this bad 20 years ago. Lack of compassion wasn’t this bad 20 years ago. And God knows 20 years ago that I wasn’t afraid daily to call a parent because I KNEW that 9 out of 10 would cuss me out, tell me to go to Hell, call the news on me, call the school board on me, or post all over FaceBook about me because I called to let them know what their child chose to do at school…because they are a NORMAL kid!!!!!

Those 17 lives mattered. When are we going to take our own responsibility seriously?

Cherly Study Buddies Colored ILLS

Now for this editors two cents! Kelly is absolutely rights on all counts and I couldn’t have said it any better. We both grew up before parents starting taking the “It’s All About Me” attitude. In addition, if you slam a teacher or a principal with “Not My Child” you think you can remove yourself from any and all responsibility.

WARNING: If you aren’t willing to dedicate 18 full-time years to each and every child you have, then don’t have any!

Having children like being married are full-time jobs and require a sense of decency and respect not only for others but most certainly for themselves. They must be taught the difference between right and wrong and for Heaven’s sake as you are NOT supposed to be their friend but their parent, the punishment should be a rule of thumb AND don’t threaten punishment if you don’t intend to follow through.

I not talking about corporal punishment but when your child does something they know they aren’t supposed to and you tell them they can’t go to the party you previously said they could, you don’t change your mind and say yes they can go just because of some whining and begging.

NO is supposed to mean NO, not yes because I want to be your friend or because it interferes with your plans! Our country has basically lost 2 generations as of this date and what do we have, kids on the streets protesting for something they actually don’t understand.

You want your children to LOVE you but RESPECT must come first.

If A High School Paper Staff Could Smell Something Rotten, Why Can’t We?

“How many parents … send their children to school so central planners can mold them into functionally illiterate cogs in a centrally planned machine, having just enough knowledge to do their preassigned task? How will such cogs be able to think critically, much less sustain liberty and the American experiment? The short answer is that they will not – and that is the point. Samuel Blumenfeld and Alex Newman

“Crimes of the Educators – How Utopians are using government schools to destroy America’s children”

I have in the past brought up the topic of how parents are not allowed to know anything about their children’s teachers or principals, but they can know everything about you and your family.

Under Obama’s Federal Education Dept. and the Common Core Data Mining intrusion, teachers were encouraged to ask their students personal family questions to be reported in the children’s files.

  • Do your Mom and Dad Fight?
  • Do you go to church and where?
  • Does your Dad/Mom have a gun?
  • Do your parents fight?

Thankfully a small Kansas High School newspaper staff felt there was something very wrong about their new principal’s credentials. The students first began by checking on her credentials and they found several discrepancies. Amy Robertson, the newly hired principal had stated she had attended a private university, Corllins University, where she received her master’s and doctorate degrees years ago. The students found the university’s website didn’t work and they could find no evidence it was an accredited university.

Things began to heat up when the students published an article in the school paper questioning the legitimacy of the principal’s degrees and her supposed work as an education consultant. The following Tuesday Robertson resigned.

A very important question here is why the hiring school board had not already done this work?

Robertson’s resignation thrust the students into the state and national news,  with professional journalists nationwide applauding the students for asking tough questions and prompting a change in their administration.

The student’s newspaper advisor Emily Smith said people were telling them to “stop poking your nose where it doesn’t belong”, but Smith went on to say the students were at a loss that it was so easy for them to see what was just waiting for the adults to see.

In their article, a team of six students — five juniors and one senior — revealed that Corllins had been portrayed in a number of articles as a diploma mill, a place where people can buy a degree, diploma or certificates. Corllins is not accredited by the U.S. Department of Education, the students reported. The Better Business Bureau’s website says Corllins’s physical address is unknown and the school isn’t a BBB-accredited institution.

Connor Balthazor, 17 said, “All of this was completely overlooked. All of the shining reviews did not have these crucial pieces of information … you would expect your authority figures to find this.”

In putting the frosting on the cake, Robertson had been living in Dubai for more than 20 years before being hired as the school’s principal. Robertson had also stated before being hired that all three of her degrees had been “authenticated by the U.S. government.”

Watch their video –

Rare occurrence? Sorry, I am afraid not! Teachers around the country are presenting their personal and social agenda’s to your children and telling them to NOT tell their parents and seeking jobs in charter schools where it is much easier to get a job if you are uncertified.

We have schools/leadership training all across this country for LGBTQ, Social Justice, Tolerance, Diversity, Equity and Justice and with some teachers, it sits at the head of their classrooms every day of the week.

GLSEN

Did you all forget Obama’s appointment of the country’s first “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings, a full-fledged GLSEN man – a man known in gay circles for his close proximity to children? No one is saying he is a pedophile, but I have always believed his work was to indoctrinate and recruit young children to “believe” they were gay.

Recently the news broke, that FACULTY members of a charter school in Sandpoint, Idaho were recruiting students to join a “secret gay club”, concealing their activism from parents.

Mary Jensen, the principal of Forrest M. Bird Charter School, colluded with community activists to establish a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club at Sandpoint Jr. High School and admitted they acted under secrecy,

“We’re keeping it kind of on the down low because this is North Idaho,” Jensen said in a recording obtained by the nonprofit legal organization. “Kids who wanted to participate in the club did not necessarily want their parents to know.”

School employees even went so far as to hold off-campus meetings with potential GSA students at a local library, without parental consent or involvement.

The club came to light when Jensen, along with staff members Michael Bigley and Becky Campbell, invited a student to participate in the club. When the student’s parents found out, they made it clear to the school’s administration they did not want their child involved. The school ignored the parents’ wishes and continued to send the student to GSA meetings during school hours, and on school property.

What is happening in your schools?

  • A Hillsborough County Public School teacher in Tampa, FL who just happens to be lesbian tried to ban students from wearing crosses to school because she views them as “gang symbols” and blatantly promotes a pro-LGBT agenda,” reportedly retweeted during the school day “favorite queer web series for kids”. The teacher is also a member of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network’s Leadership Institute (GLSEN).
  • Further, she put LGBT stickers on the notebooks her class uses. Her lesbian partner, also a teacher, “dressed as a nun for a school spirit week, complete with a ‘cross necklace’ made of skulls,’ and she singled out students for “false ‘misbehavior’ allegations” after they removed the LGBT stickers.
  • The After School Satanic Clubs, (ASSC) created and pushed by the Satanic Temple are gaining approval around the country with one opening in a Portland, Oregon elementary school. Their leader claims they are “entitled” to have their after school program wherever the schools are allowing the Good News Clubs to gather. The leader Finn Rezz stated, “Our goal, ultimately, is to place an ASSC in every school where the Good News Clubs, or other proselytizing religious groups, have established a presence,”

After school satanic clubs

But parents, Satanism is not a recognized religion so where are you and what is wrong with your school boards? You do understand don’t you that most of those involved in Human Trafficking and things like Pizzagate are Satanists?

Have you ever heard of the Social Justice Training Institute? One of their faculty, Becky Martinez brags “what I define as my ‘light-switch’ is my role as a change agent.

The quote at the top of this blog was written by the authors of the book “Crimes of the Educators” and it was first published a couple of years ago just before Sam passed away. Sam Blumenfeld was an educator with integrity, loved children and despised what was happening to our children through education. He previously had authored eight books on education and also created a system for teaching your child to read the “right” way. called “Alpha-Phonics. You can find the video’s here.

In Sam and Alex’s book, they explain how in the U.S. utopians, or “progressives,” have tried to destroy traditional America by strategically dumbing down her people. America’s future is being crippled on purpose in order to fundamentally transform the nation, its values and its system of government. Laid out a century ago by progressive luminary John Dewey, the fruits of his schemes are plain to see today. Dewey got rid of the traditional intensive phonics method of instruction and imposed a “look-say,” “sight” or “whole-word” method that forces children to read English as if it were Chinese. The method is widely used in today’s public schools, which is a major reason there are so many failing public schools that cannot teach children the basics. This can only be considered a blatant form of child abuse.

Crimes of the Educators“Crimes of the Educators” reveals how the architects of America’s public school disaster implemented a plan to socialize the United States by knowingly and willingly dumbing down the population, a mission now closer to success than ever as the Obama administration works relentlessly to nationalize K-12 schooling with Common Core.

This blogger makes no money from promoting this book and every parent concerned about what is happening through the education of their children should read it and know exactly how and what is planned. Link

Just How Far Are We Willing To Let This Social Justice Fraud Go? The UN Must Go!

But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those but those that be of men. Matthew 16:23

It is all one sided – the left side and no matter who you ask to give you the definition of social justice, you will get a different answer each time.

Social Justice was introduced under the arms of  UNESCO and is now being taught in our classrooms across the country and around the world. Social justice is an ideology being used to support equality and solidarity in regard to any given issue at any given time in society by designating a small group as the victim of the moment.

The United Nations supported a three-year project between 2001-2004 “The International Forum for Social Development:  Social Justice in an Open World – The Role of the United Nations.”

Social Justice is one of the founding principles of various forms of socialism, communism, fascism, globalism, progressivism and cooperative economic organizations, implemented through progressive taxation, redistribution of wealth, and even property redistribution. Add to that the lies surrounding Climate Change voiced by their own Christiana Figueres, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), who stated in 2015, “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time to change the economic development model that has been in place for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution. That will not happen overnight and it will not happen at a single conference on climate change, be it COP 15, 21, 40 — you choose the number. It just does not occur like that. It is a process, because of the depth of the transformation to rid the world of capitalism.”

All this is being taught in our schools! And do not believe that just because your child is attending a Charter/Choice/Private/Voucher school they are protected from this agenda.

Have you really thought about why the 20-35 age group of Americans were supporting Bernie Sanders for President? Because he was offering them everything for free. No responsibility for anything – that was to go to someone else and when we run out of someone else’s money, anarchy ensues.

Jack Chambless, an Economics Professor at Valencia College in Orlando, Florida in 2011 sent an article to The Orlando Sentinel entitled The American Dream. His students were told to write an essay explaining their definition of the “American Dream” and what they expected the federal government to do to help them achieve their version of their American dream.

“When contemplating the role of Washington, D.C., in helping them achieve their goals in life, my students, most of whom were educated in America’s public schools, wrote that they wanted the government to:

pay for my tuition
provide me with a job
give me money for a house
make sure I get free health care
pay for my retirement
raise taxes on rich people so that I can have more money, etc.

We can safely assume these students believed there were no expectations that they would have to contribute to achieving these things on their part.  Self-responsibility is a thing of the past along with consequences for their actions. Certainly, we can expect no less reasoning when people like the Clinton’s, Podesta and others in government can continue to commit fraud and bring about corruption and still walk the streets and sleep in their own beds at night.

What our youth today are not being taught is that there are consequences to the government controlling your life. Take one red penny from the government and they own you, lock, stock, and barrel.

When your child comes home from school with the UNESCO message talking about world brotherhood, are you going to contradict the Christmas message of peace on earth and tell him or her that all men are not brothers?

When your child comes home from school talking about “the world society of the future”, are you going to tell him it is wrong “to love his neighbor”?

If you would rather question what I am telling you, that the destruction of the United States has been and is planned to be carried out through the UN/UNESCO using your children as the tools, please go here and here and read the official documents showing what has and is taking place right here and around the world. They are using “social justice” as a method to soften your children to believe animals are more important than human beings and that everyone and everything are equal except those of us who are not supporting this conspiracy and our children are being taught WE are the bad guys.

Read this and then read the Communist Manifesto and re-read the notations in the previous paragraph and see if you end up having the same trust in your government you had before you began reading this. And all of this is going on in your child’s classrooms.

Paul Harvey’s Warning To America – ‘If I Were the Devil’

“If I were the prince of darkness, I would want to engulf the whole world in darkness. I’d have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree — thee. So, I would set about, however, necessary to take over the United States.

“I’d subvert the churches first, and I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: ‘Do as you please.’

“To the young, I would whisper that the Bible is a myth. I would convince the children that man created God instead of the other way around. I’d confide that what’s bad is good and what’s good is square. And the old, I would teach to pray after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington …’

“Then, I’d get organized, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

“If I were the devil, I’d soon have families at war with themselves, churches at war with themselves and nations at war with themselves until each, in its turn, was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings, I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames.

“If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellect but neglect to discipline emotions. I’d tell teachers to let those students run wild. And before you knew it, you’d have drug-sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

“With a decade, I’d have prisons overflowing and judges promoting pornography. Soon, I would evict God from the courthouse and the schoolhouse and then from the houses of Congress. In his own churches, I would substitute psychology for religion and deify science. I’d lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls and church money.

“If I were the devil, I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. What’ll you bet I couldn’t get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich?

“I’d convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun and that what you see on television is the way to be. And thus, I could undress you in public and lure you into bed with diseases for which there are no cures.

“In other words, if I were the devil, I’d just keep right on doing what he’s doing.”

Whether you believe in the devil or not, these changes have taken place. What was once stigmatized as deviant behavior is now tolerated and even sanctioned; what was once regarded as abnormal has been normalized. … As deviancy is normalized, so what was once normal becomes deviant. The kind of family that has been regarded for centuries as natural and moral – the ‘bourgeois’ family as it is invidiously called – is now seen as pathological.”

We have nowhere to go from here but to take back control of what was once rightfully ours and understand the “social justice” trap is just that – another Trap!

“The Year of Satan – Who Shall Lead” Part 3

Isn’t it interesting how something long in existence can be suddenly re-proposed as a brilliant new idea? Politicians and educators, hoping we have memory problems, often do this to fool us into thinking they are working hard to improve a situation. Another audacious example of this strategy was recently provided by the Holy See’s support of a proposal for “United Religions”.

There is a movement at work called “Catholics Come Home”. The website acknowledges “We are grateful to be Catholic, and we’re glad you are too. There is so much to love about Jesus and His Catholic Church, and it is infinitely important that we share this good news with others!

This is NOT a movement to bring the ‘lost’ Catholics back home although that is part of the goal. This is a movement to draw all religions under the umbrella of the Roman Catholic Church.

Is this just another statement backing up the words of Pope Francis when he said, “the rest of Christianity who are not Catholics cannot possibly know God without the Catholic Church and the Virgin Mary”. So those of us who believe in God and Christ are not really Christians? Our faith is not real?

Just what is in the back of the mind of this Pope?

One World Religion 2Does Pope Francis intend to help the global elite achieve their goal of uniting all of the religions of the world under a single banner? Will he be instrumental in establishing a single global religion for the glorious “new age” that the global elite believe is coming? Is Francis to be the leader of the New World Religion?

Since his election, Pope Francis has made it abundantly clear that he is going to make ecumenical outreach a top priority. Not only has he worked hard to reach out to leaders from various Christian traditions, he has also made it a point to try to acknowledge the mutual bonds that he feels with all other religions.

Amazingly, Catholic Culture web site is reporting the One World Church is expected to take place this year. Supposedly it is to become institutionalized as the United Religions Organization—the UR). Collaborating on the details are Bishop William Swing of the Episcopal Diocese of California, the Communist Gorbachev Foundation/USA, and certain leaders of the Catholic Church, working through the interreligious organization known as the World Conference on Religion and Peace.

Simply put, all workings are through and about the United Nations/UNESCO along with all the Global Council Trustees. This group is kind of kinky in that two of the trustees from the US are a scary story into themselves.

Don H. Frew of Berkeley, CA is a Wiccan elder, a High Priest of Coven
Trismegiston and a National Interfaith Representative for the Covenant of the Goddess. Joining him as one of the trustees is Audri Scott Williams who has a Master’s Degree in ‘Indigenous Mind’ and if you aren’t sure what that is – the Indigenous Mind recovery is a process for individuals to recover and remember the ancient earth-based knowledge and spiritual wisdom of their ancestors.

Honorary Chairs to name a few are George P. Schultz, former Secretary of State and Chairman of the President’s Economic Policy Advisory Board during the Reagan Administration. During the Nixon Administration he served as Secretary of Labor, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Secretary of the Treasury, and Chairman of the Council on Economic Policy. He was also a Senior Staff Economist on the President’s Council of Economic Advisors during the Eisenhower Administration. Schultz’s wife Dame Charlotte Schultz joins him in this group.

Argentina Pope NWRWhy am I addressing this? In 2007, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Cardinal of Buenos Aires, Argentina, invited the visiting Episcopal Bishop of California, William Swing, to bring his assorted syncretist colleagues to the Cathedral for an interfaith service with him. Swing’s group is part of the United Religions Initiative URI, and the purpose of the syncretic worship was to celebrate the URI’s 10th anniversary of its installation in Latin America.

What was so important about this group that the future Pope Francis wanted to celebrate their anniversary in his cathedral?

To answer this question you must first understand the future New World Order, to be a pantheistic global community, comprising a one-world government and one-world religion or church. By definition, a pantheistic world community must have a unified religion; whilst uniting people under one religion helps them to peacefully accept world government. New Age spokesman, the dangerous Robert Muller, former UN Assistant Secretary-General, forecast that by 2013, “based on the common spirituality,” we should have entered “a new age of … all-encompassing synthesis”.
Muller wrote the book New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality.

Although Muller grew up in a Catholic home, he admits that he wasn’t inspired to become a “really spiritual person” until years later when he joined the UN. Nevertheless, he feels that his Catholic upbringing prepared him to accept the New Age worldview which he held while alive.

While serving at the UN, the person who most impressed Mueller was UN Secretary-General U Thant, a Buddhist. Muller Claimed U Thant taught him there was no difference between spirituality, religion and life – things his Catholic religion had taught him but that U Thant was a better teacher.

Alice BaileyIn 1919, New Age leader and occultist Alice Bailey, in her book, The Externalization of the Hierarchy, revealed the plan for a “Church Universal”. She described her idea as a union of occultism, Masonry and Christianity, whose “definite outlines will appear towards the close of this century.”

“Church Universal” or one-world church, in the making for over 150 years, materialized in June 1997 as the United Religions Organization. Chief partners in its establishment were Bishop Swing (URI); the Communist Gorbachev Foundation/USA; and the syncretic World Conference on Religion and Peace, known today as Religions for Peace. Also associated were the British World Congress of Faiths and its American counterpart, the Temple of Understanding.

In 1996, Bishop Swing (URI) (former Episcopal Bishop of California), called the process of forming the United Religions “The United Religions Initiative 2000,” the “initiative” being the “scaffolding upon which others can stand to build a permanent structure”. This transitional name, the United Religions Initiative (URI), is still being used, although the one-world church became functional in 2000; but calling it the United Religions Initiative allows it to pose as merely another interfaith organization, rather than the institutionalized world religion.

This only intensifies the visit Swing made to Argentina to meet with the now Pope Francis.

Swing is also pro-homosexuality and anti-population which agrees with the UN stand.

Pope and PeresFebruary 2014: An Argentinian interfaith group originally created by then Archbishop Bergoglio is greeted in Israel by Peres, who praises the Pope because “he returned religion into a spirit rather than an organization, a faith more than a church”.

September, 2014 former President Shimon Peres emerged from his Vatican audience with Pope Francis after proposing a kind of United Nations for religions. Still believe this process is not in the works?

He used the talks to highlight human rights abuses from Hamas and to discuss the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe. But the main topic of conversation was Peres’s idea to create an UN-like organization he called “the United Religions.”

Peres said the Argentina-born pontiff was the only world figure respected enough to bring an end to the wars raging in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world.

“In the past, most of the wars in the world were motivated by the idea of nationhood,” Peres said. “But today, wars are incited using religion as an excuse.” Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi confirmed to reporters that Peres had pitched his idea for “the United Religions” but said Francis did not commit to it.

The summit between Peres and Francis is the third high-profile meeting between the leaders in little more than four months. They met for the first time in late May, when Francis became the fourth pope to visit the Holy Land in the modern era. On that trip, Francis invited Peres and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to the Vatican for a prayer meeting in June, which they both attended.

In an interview with the Catholic Magazine Famiglia Cristiana, Peres called on Francis to leverage his respect to create an interfaith organization to curb religious violence.

Are these people really serious? Wars today are mostly being prompted through a belief in a certain religion that is supposed to be the power of the world – Islam! You think the Muslims are actually going to sit at a table and give over authority to anyone?

Peres is living in a fantasy world when he says, ““What we need is an organization of United Religions… as the best way to combat terrorists who kill in the name of faith.” “What we need is an unquestionable moral authority who says out loud, ‘No, God does not want this and does not allow it.” And they will stop????

Jordans Prince El-HassanAfter meeting with Peres, Francis held a 30-minute closed door meeting with Jordanian Prince El-Hassan bin Talal, who sponsors the Royal Institute for Interfaith Studies to promote religious dialogue. Lombardi said that meeting dovetailed into the day’s topic of interfaith cooperation and peace.

It seems our true God was not impressed by the atheistic Vatican prayer meetings for peace in the Middle East. The area exploded in war right after the third meeting between Francis and Peres.

Fr. Lombardi was very pleased with the success of the prayer meeting stating, “The prayer for peace initiative which took place here” with Peres and Abbas, “is in no ways to be considered a failure – subsequent developments notwithstanding – but rather as the opening of a door”.

And what about Nobel Peace Laureate Peres, touted as a “crusader for peace”? About a week after the Gaza offensive began, with 200 Palestinians and one Israeli dead, he defended Israel’s heavy-handed actions: “If they are shooting at us, and don’t let our mothers and their children … have a full night’s sleep, what can we do?”

But the world needn’t worry. The One-World Church now has official papal blessing. Surely peace will swiftly follow. (sarcasm)

Our Pope Francis is certainly a busy man! Forked tongue comes to mind!

On June 9, 2014, Pope Francis criticized “fundamentalism” in Christianity, Judaism and Islam as violence: “A fundamentalist group, even if it doesn’t strike anyone, is violent. The mentality of fundamentalism is violence in the name of God.”

Really? Did the Pope reference that in his meetings with Kenneth Copeland, Rick Warren and Joel Osteen? Our Pope is beginning to sound as if he has been trained in double-speak.
