Comment: Now I know that there are some Catholics that truly follow Jesus
and filled with the spirit oof God. However there are some things in roman
Catholocism that are filled with compromise such as the doctrines. Since
when does the bible ever tell christians to pray in the name of St. Peter,
or St. James etc or Mary. This is idolatry and where do you see the Pope
in the bible and how is it that what he says goes for the catholic church,
does not the bible say that there is only one mediator between God and man
and that being Jesus Christ. Is the Pope sinless! This is not to smash
anyone but to confront religious spirits and how they trick the mindsets
of people. Another question is how do people figure that at these funerals
they can pray a soul into heaven and if a person lives on the earth and
has 2 or 3 miracles done then that qualifies them for saint hood. Those
are mans standards and not Gods there are more youth that do more miracles
in their lifetime then that plus Jesus said these works you shall do and
even greater works. I heard on the catholic radio station a priest say
that there will be good muslims in heaven, good buddhist and monks in
heaven and good mormons in heaven because as long as they desire to know
God they will go. Now this type of doctrine is ungodly and comes from the
pit of hell itself. I do not see how people can be lead to believe that if
they took the euchrist that it makes them saved or participate in any
religious ceremony then they are fine. Salvation is not in works but by
grace and repentance and asking Jesus Christ in your heart to be Lord. In
roman catholicism at the vadican there is in obleisk near the site, now if
you read the book of Jeremiah you will read how God told him to destroy
the sacred pillars ( do a word study on pillars) that word pillar is
translated into obleisk in the hebrew. Now why is this in the vadican,
because there is some mixing going on in roman catholicism that is full of
spiritual adultery this same pillar is a monument in Wahsington D.C..The
true church is the group of believers that are living holy lives and doing
Mark 16:15-17 and not a denomination.Before Catholocism or any believer
can say things about movies remember (by the way when is the last time you
have spent money at the movies to watch a rated R flick or movie when you
knew it would have nasty scenes in it, profanity, murders etc.. you do
realize that you are supporting satans agenda to, he is called the god of
this worlds system plus you would also be supporting the sins that God
tells us not to engage in) you have to come out of the world yourself and
let go of the spiritual idolatry that you know of, then repent and then
woop on the devil. So Christians lets rise up put the filthy thing away
from you and lets do war in the heavens for the victory is our through
Jesus Christ!!

Yeah. They're going to force you to become Muslim. Forget the fact that something obsurd like 80% of Americans refer to themsleves as some kind of Christian; electing B. Hussain Obama will force everyone to become muslim. Got it.

I don't think there are enough mental health facilities in the US to house people like this.

Comment: Sorry for the vulgarity, im just sick of hearing worried white,
upper class, republicans dig up as much crap on somebody that probably
won't even make it to the white house anyways.
And i know im gonna get alot of shit for this but screw it.
Im not for terrorism or anyone affiliated with it, but im also not for the
greedy rich racists that wanna wipe out the middle class.(i grew up a poor
white kid)
So if your pissed i understand, and i don't blame you cuz im not that
great at making a point without conflicting myself, or spelling for that
matter.
So anyway this is in response to all the "Barack Obama Facts" that keep
popping up on bulletins.(im not even for anyone this term considering they
all scare the shit out of me, im just tired of being beat over the head
with "freedom, terrorism, and liberation") so email me back if you dont
get my point and want to slap me with numbers that i probably dont get or
"fun facts" about money hungry people that want to rule a media-retarded
nation.

here goes,

that shit is so funny, i wanna know what fag wrote that, "christian" my
ass, what kind of christian posts a bulletin of uneducated slander, for
one you can take any phrase from the bible and interpret what you want, "a
man from the east will come to power and bla bla bla", by that rational it
could have been Hitler, that daaaaaaaaah relied on "CHARISMATIC" speeches
to turn his nation against pretty much everyone, or how bout Sadduam?
Secondly (forgive my spelling) hes a christian talking about "being at
war" im not sure if jesus likes war dumbass. Let me guess your probably a
rich whiney republican that cries about democrats spending money on gov
health care, but is for going to a war that has cost us 9 trillion
dollars, and puts rednecks in a pussy third world country with all the
firepower that our wasted money can buy, and you know what they do? they
throw defenseless puppys off cliffs and god knows what the **** else. Your
the radical mother****er,you wave the american flag and vote for mcain who
says he'll stay in iraq for "100 years", oh that be just great, ITS MONEY
THATS WHAT WAR IS ABOUT, WEAPONS,GEAR,FOOD,AND BOMBS COST MONEY! Don't
patronize us with talks of hate against a sect of extremists that, HAVE
NOTHING TO DO WITH THE GENERAL RELIGION OF ISLAM, they're pissed cause we
are trying to americanize their way of life, the other majority of their
country doesnt want war, they are peacefull people, i dont blame them, how
would you feel about a country that drops bombs, on your children just to
kill one man(maybe kill one man) then say "oops hears an MRE kid
sorrrrrrrry" 9/11 didnt mean go on an almost decade long war, it ment
strengthen our boarders and homeland security. And of course you'll say im
not a patriot, and i'll say **** you id rather spend taxes on my fellow
americans here then **** the economy up so bad it takes 2 cents to make a
penny, but "were fighting for freedom" newsflash sweet pee im free as shit
i can walk around my house butt-naked worshiping a toaster and no-one can
say shit(unless i had kids). Oh and a patriot fights for his country when
it is REALLY in perel, and a christian isn't pro-death. Oh and by the way,
its gonna take alot more than your cult-like beliefs that thinks anyone
that doesnt worship A MAN from YOUR religion is going to hell to change
our ****ed up country that worries more about what pop-singers are doing
than their own people. if you ask me your no different than the Taliban,
**** ANYONE THAT BELIEVES THIS SHIT

I AM BLACK AND PROUD. I USED TO BE A CHRISTIAN BUT NOT ANY MORE: HERE IS
WHY:
BLACK PEOPLE CAME TO AMERICA AS SLAVES. ONE OF THE WAY THE"MASTER" TAMED
THEM WAS TO STRIP THEIR IDENTITY AWAY BY FORCING THEM TO TAKE
THEIR"MASTER'S NAME!

YOU ARE TRYING TO STRIP OBAMA'S IDENTITY AWAY AND ENSLAVE HIM?hILARY
cLINTON YOU ARE INDEED EVIL.

BARRACK OBAMA'S FATHER DID NOTCOME TO aMERICA AS A SLAVE. HE IS ONE OF THE
FEW BLACK AMERICANS THAT CAN TRACE THEIR ROOTS AND PROUD OF IT.MR OBAMA
SENIOR COULD HAVE CALLED HIS SON A COMPLETE AFRICAN NAME WITH A MEANING TO
IT BUT HE GAVE HIS SON HIS NAME.THAT IS VERY TYPICAL IN SOME TRIBES IN
AFRICA WHEN YOU MARRY AWAY FROM HOME.IF THINGS DO NOT WORK OUT BETWEEN YOU
AND YOUR SPOUSE THE ADVICE IS YOU WANT YOUR CHILD TO KNOW WHO THEY
ARE-THEIR ROOTS NO MATTER WHAT. SLAVERY WAS THE CATALST HERE.

SO MUSLIM OR NOT IT WAS AND STILL IS HIS NAME.hE COULD HAVE BEEN CALLED
BARRACK DUNHAM WHAT WOULD YOU NOW BE LOOKING FOR?BARRACK OBAMA IS
ABSOLUTELY RIGHT; WHY SHOULD HE HAVE TO SPEND TIME EXPLAINING WHY HIS
PARENTS CALLED HIM WHAT IDENTIFIES HIM AS A MEMBER OF THE SOCIETY?

CAN YOU EXPLAIN WHY YOUR PARENTS CALLED YOU YOUR CURRENT NAME?HILARY AND
MANY OF THE WHITE FOLKS; YOUR RELATIVES KEPT SLAVES AS AN ASSET ON THEIR
BOOKS.WAIT! YOU WANT TO SAY I AM EMPLOYING THE R WORD.NO. YOU BROUGHT THIS
UP.LET'S CLEAR IT.bARRCK DOES NOT CARE WHAT YOU CALL HIM.EITHER IT IS
TURNING OUT THAT HE IS STILL A SLAVE.

BARRACK KNOWS WHO HE IS AND THAT IS WHAT BUGS SOME "CRACKERS"LIKE YOU AND
TO US SLAVE CHILDREN WE WISH WE WERE HIM BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHO HE IS AND
THAT IS CRITICAL.

BARRACK DOES NOT HAVE TO GO TO LIBRARIES TO SEARCH FOR HIS ROOTS. HE KNOWS
HIS LINEAGE.YOU HILLARY CLINTON,AND YOUR FRIENDS IN THE RIGHT WING CAN NOT
PUT HIM DOWN.HE KNOWS HIS ROOTS. YOU ARE WONDERING HOW THIS ESCAPED YOU.
gOD PROTECTS THAT ONE PERSON FOR A PURPOSE.ARE YOU CHRISTIANS?

Clinton the "first african American president"who was the first to throw
the first stone in the south?who left the Africans be massacred in Ruanda?
You have been exposed.

You clintons;stop trying to cover people's eyes by concentrating on
OBAMA'S NAME inorder to go back to the white house .People have taken
their blinkers off.The clintons disgraced the white house.He/she were
obsssessed with power and they stripped the reputation of the white house
naked. We can not believe he wants to go back there.America be afraid.
Husein Obama is not a problem.Mcain is a madman.you have problems. GIVE
OBAMA A CHANCE.

Look at this another way;what if obama suddenly calls himself "John sydney
Rodham KING"? would YOU be happy? wHY,because IT REMINDS YOU OF THE GOOD
OLD TIMES WHEN BLACKS WERE forced to WORSHIP christianity by virtue of
being slaveS-No you would still be very afraid.

SELFISHNES AND GREED IS THE PROBLEM HERE.YOU WANT TO BE THE ONLY ONES
RULING AND NOT ANYONE ELSE!AND YET YOU BLAME RUSSIA,AND OTHER THIRD WORLD
COUNTRIES FOR REFUSING TO LEAVE POWER TO OTHER PEOPLE TO RULE TOO, IN
THEIR COUNTRIES. YOURS ARE NOT DOUBLE STANDARDS?

YIF OBAM A WAS "JOHN SYDNEY RODHAM KING" YOU WOULD STILL FIND ANOTHER
EXCUSE. HE IS BLACK OR NOT BLACK ENOUGH.SOMETHING ABOUT THIS MAKES YOU
FEEL SUPERIOR.

SEE HOW WHEN THE WHITE MAN FATHERS A CHILD WITH A BLACK WOMAN HIS SOCIETY
SHURNS HIM AND CALLS THE CHILD BLACK. THIS IS HYPOCRISY CHRISTIAN WHITE
MAN.gEORGE BUSH A BORN AGAIN CHRISTAIN WITH CHRISTIAN VALUES;PROTECTS A
TERRORRIST FUNDER-SAUDI ARABIA AND HE IS IN THE WHITE HOUSE.HIS NAME IS
george william bush.why is that not a problem?

IN KENYA YOU GIVE YOUR CHILD YOUR FULL NAME FOR IDENTITY SAKE.THE CHILD
MUST KNOW WHO HE IS WHETHER YOU ARE THERE,DEAD ORIN PRISON OR NOT. IT
MATTERS IN EVERYTHING.kENYANS WERE ENSLAVED TOO.PEOPLE WERE GIVEN WHITE
NAMES AS A RESULT A FOREIGN NAME MEANS NOTHING.IT IS JUST A CRAPPY
REMINDER THAT WE LET OUR GUARD DOWN.

THAT IS ONE OF THE THINGS GREEDY WHITE AMERICA TOOK AWAY FROM AFRICANS
WHOM THEY NOW CALL BLACK AMERICANS,THEIR IDENTITY.

OBAMA'S DNA IS 50/50.HE IS TRUELY BIPARTISAN AND HE WILL UNITE AMERICA HIS
HOMELAND.

WE ARE QUIETLY WATCHING AND LISTENING.MCAIN,CLINTONS/KING AND YOUR OTHER
"VOICES".DO YOU KNOW WHO YOUR BLACK BROTHERS AND SISTERS ARE OUT THERE?

YOU HAVE BEEN FORCED TO RUNAWAY FROM THE RESPONSIBILITY AND NOW IT HAS
COME RIGHT AT YOUR DOOR STEP.IS IT NOT CHRISTIAN HYPOCRISY AT ITS BEST?
THIS CHILD HUSEIN CARRIES YOUR DNA IN HIS VEINS.DO NOT HIDE BEHIND MOSLEM
OR HIS NAME? hE HAS YOUR BLOOD AND HE IS A GOOD MAN.
JESUS WAS A SON OF CARPENTER NOT THE FAMOUS PHARISEES. aREFERENCE FROM
YOUR OWN BELIEFS.

OBAMA IS OBAMA AND WILL ALWAYS BE OBAMA. HIS OTHER NAMES,BARRACK OR
HUSSEIN ARE NOT IMPORTANT.THEY ARE MUSLIM SLAVE NAMES TOO.

THE ARABS GOT TO THE EAST AFRICAN COAST FIRST AND TRIED TO COLONIZE IT
THROUGH SLAVE TRADING.THE WHITE MAN WAS THEIR CUSTOMER AND STILL IS TO
DATE.SOMETHING HAPPENED DURING THIS TRADING RELATIONSHIP AND IT WAS NOT
OBAMA BEING MUSLIM IT WAS OIL. THE ARABS OUT-SMARTED THE WHITE MAN AND IT
HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OBAMA.
OBAMA WILL FIX IT. HE IS 50%WHITE AND 50% BLACK. HE IS NOT MUSLIM! GET IT?
he has a slave muslim name and as a child he did what his mother felt
best.No choice and stop this harrassedment.

Comment: Hello I have been raising horses for about
25 years,I have never until now heard of so many cases of either horse
cruelty,or starving a horse.By stopping the slaughter of a horse,this has
not helped but only added to the problem,by not putting an unwanted horse
down,only makes him suffer more if you know what it is like to go hungry
for a short period of time think what a horse must feel like after going a
week or more,why let that happen,if these activest want to really want to
help why not join and help feed the hungry people of this world,what are
we to do when they say now that we have saved the horse,so lets now turn
on saving the cow sheep or goats then what,they say how bad it is to haul
in a double decker trailer,or how they are killed,well if Washington wants
to get involved, then those things could be fixed, have the trailers
inspected,create a job for an inspector to watch over all these
things,with the right people this can work,what if one day someone
convinces Washington it is inhumane to never kill another dog,can you
imagine what this country would be like if that happens.I get phone calls
every day .please send money to help feed the stray dogs and cats,well
here is the solution open the slughter house and can the meat and send it
to them there are people over seas and here in the u.s. that would love to
be able to feed the hungry, cattlemen, ranchers,sheep and goat farmers if
this stays like it is now soon the actives will be after you too,please
help us I have seen the price of a horse drop on average from 2000 dollars
to200 dollars, other livestock will soon follow if they get there way,I
have also seen first time horse owners say why should I pay for a horse
here when I can go to the sale and get one for half the price, they go and
buy a 100 dollar special and end of hurt or even killed, so please help
us to bring back what once was a good thing,by saving one creature you
have hurt so many others,

Whenever I get upset by the latest email from my mom, which are usually mixtures of urban legend, guilt trips, and trying to save my soul, I come here and read these. It makes me feel better. Thank you, snopes, for this.

Comment: please note that this is not a rant email or evil in anyway. i
just read the comments on mel gibson and his father. in particular
comments about the jew killing jesus and we should stop telling that story
because it incites hatred. have you read the four gospels line by line
word by word? the pharasees and members of the sanhedrin followed jesus
every opportunity they had and asked him leading and trick questions in
hopes that his answers would rile up the people. they did this because
jesus pointed out their religious hypocracies to their face. it was the
jewith religious body that seized jesus [remember them paying judas?] and
held their own court and then they took jesus to pontius pilate and begged
pilate to put him to death and pilate couldn't find any wrong doing, and
so forth until pilate was bound by tradition to release one prisoner on
that particular day and pilate begged the jewish leaders to let him
release jesus and they and the jewish public demanded pilate release
barabas and put jesus to death. and we know how it turned out. if you say
it didn't happen this way and the jews of that time were not involved then
you are a revisionist. just like the revisionists who claim the holocaust
didn't happen. paul [previously known as saul]was of the sanhedrin and he
persecuted and killed non-jews who followed jesus -- and taht was by
paul's own admition. are you going to revise his personal story also
because he was a jew? many many years ago when i was working in a
university i met a young student from germany. he would come to my office
and we became friends and had many chats. this was in the late 80s. the
one thing he mentioned was how hurtful it was to him that in 1980? [i
forget the exact year] people BLAMED [emph] him for the holocaust and
killing of jews, gypsies, etc. and he was right. it is wrong to blame
the people of today for sins committed in history. it is also wrong to
deny history. it was what is was. it is important not to forget it--not
to forget how horrible things can happen. and perhaps we, as a higher
functioning species, can learn not to repeat the acts. so far, we're not
doing too good. maybe it's our learning curve. who knows. when i watched
passion of the christ i was in awe of a nothing else a man who so believed
in a concept/idea/theology that he died for it. would i? often do people
do this? i mean the peacful martyrs. ghandi. baha-u-llah. when people
engage in revision dialogue it takes away the focus from the subject and
in this case jesus and what he did and how he did it and why he did it.
well, i'm done. --just my opinion.

Comment: In regard to the excerpt from Mr. Iacoca's book: I think that we
Americans do not need to repay any loans to foreign govertments that have
been incurred as a result of our government. Let the politicians that
incurred them pay them out of their own pockets if they wish. Stop giving
out our assets to countries other than our own. They wouldn't give us a
nickel. Stop allowing our country to be sold piecemeal to foreign
investors. Our country is not for sale and anyone currently owning
American property that is not an American citizen, we need to retake the
property as a right of Eminent Domain. People sit around and allow our
ability to experience the joy of work and committment to our country's
well-being with jobs to go to China, India, Taiwan and Japan. We have few
factories left that can manufacture large machines and equipment. Our
steel is being imported more and more from outside the USA and it has been
found to be of inferior quality. Our morals and values are being
undermined, work ethics and indeed business ethics are in many cases
shoddy. We don't need all this influx of foreigners that we can't
asimilate; nor do they want to assimilate. We are breaking down the
fabric of our once safe and balanced society. Why do we allow our
government and politicians to put a gag on "we the people". I have a
perfect right to my freedom of speech and I need to be able to use it
without fear of stepping on someone's toes or offending someone. You can
bet the politicians are not having to put up with crime in their
neighorhoods or trash thrown in their yards or streets. They live in an
insular world of privelege, spouting how we should give to the poor, the
uneducated, the illegals when I don't hear a word of how they personally
give one bit of their own money to these people. If they are so keen on
being their brothers' keepers then let the politicians give all they have
and all they can earn to providing for the upkeep of people who use and
abuse our system of welfare programs. Lead by example politicians if you
actually believe what you are spouting. Me, I am sick of it. Folks,"we
the people" are our own governing body and if the politicians and
government is not performing in our best interests we have a perfect right
to tell them to step down so other more able people can assume leadership
roles

Yeah, it's not as if defaulting on all our foreign loans would have any effect on our economy or anything.
