Ian Punnet Insults Martyred Christians Everywhere

November 12, 2012 Leave a comment

Wow, false Christian and heretic Ian Punnet is a very evil moron: a soldier gave his personal experience and factually stated Muslims murder Christians often in the Middle East/Africa area, which is common knowledge, and the soldier also mentioned the verse that says to kill Christians and Jews where ever you find them and Ian then said that he didn’t know that to be true, said that the Quran calls the Jews and Christians the “people of the book” then kept talking over the soldier in a rambling fashion, and said it was the soldier’s opinion. Why does Ian always do this whenever someone tells him there are evil religions, and Ian then play casual friend to the world by saying there are only lunatic fringes?

Moron Ian, Ian the God-hating idiot: Muslims, ALL MUSLIMS, in general, repeat the line that the Bible has been corrupted, therefore modern Muslims believe that the Jews and Christians today who are “of the book” are of a corrupt version/versions of the Bible. On top of that idiot, the soldier was citing a verse, so of course there will regular be Muslims who practice it, and as any idiot, massive idiot who pays attention to the news, as every idiot liberal knows but you’re narcissist self MUSLIMS ARE KILLING CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS REGULARLY YOU MORON. HOW DO YOU NOT KNOW ABOUT SUDAN YOU IDIOT? How do you not know about the Copts being persecuted by Muslims regular in Egypt? How do you not know about Muslims in Saudi Arabia who will kill a Muslim who turns to Christ, or in Iran or in Pakistan? IF MUSLIMS ARE REGULARLY KILLING THEIR OWN DAUGHTERS, DAUGHTERS YOU MORON, AND THEIR WIVES FOR THE SMALLEST OFFENSES, POURING AND THROWING ACID ON THEIR FACES TO KILL OR HUMILIATE THEM NONSTOP FOREVER, HOW CAN YOU NOT CONSIDER THEY WOULD KILL THOSE WHO OPENLY OPPOSE THEIR ENTIRE RELIGION AND WHOM THEY ASSOCIATE AS PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY THEIR COUNTRY ON TOP OF THAT!? WHY ARE YOU SO OBLIVIOUS AND DUMB!? You should be executed you moron, for insulting all the tens of thousands of Christians both true and false who died without denying Christ!

AS YOU SAID IDIOT: YOU DON’T KNOW, WHY THEN MORON DID YOU SAY IT WAS THE SOLDIER’S OPINION, AND ON A VETERAN THEMED SHOW? DUMMY? YOU’RE AN EVIL IDIOT AND SHOULD GET OFF THEIR AIR FOR GOOD AND STOP PRETENDING TO BE A DEACON WHEN YOU’RE AN ARROGANT HERETIC WHO INSULTS CHRISTIANS EVERYWHERE! JUST BECAUSE YOU TALK CALM YO IDIOT DOESN’T MAKE YOU A GOOD PERSON. LIKE CHRIST SAID, OUTWARDLY YOU ARE A SHEEP, BUT INSIDE YOU ARE A WOLF!

Get off the air you fringe heretic! You make liberals look extremely stupid!

11-12-2012, 7:32 PM:

A few minutes ago, I just remembered having a strange dream, about 30 minutes ago I think (yes, I sleep during the middle of the day now as my depression is back from my psoriasis having flared up again). It was a short one, and I forget the first part for now, but after, I think, not sure, getting rejected by some girls, I was in a restaurant sitting down near its open oven, a raised square oven with no enclosure, and there was at least one person next to me. Someone put a small squat woman like a dwarf into the oven. I didn’t know what was going on at first, and didn’t even know I was in a restaurant (if you’d had a lot of dreams you know they seem to have a life of their own and seem to be made up as they progress). She didn’t talk as the heat began to make her hot. Someone then said to pour water on her to keep her from getting hot to keep the pain away she would be in (till she died). I poured a little water on her and blew on her face (to use the air to keep her cool), but she started to show she was uncomfortable, as if burning, so I just lifted her out. She wasn’t some beautiful woman at all. She looked a little Mexican, and a little like a troll, so I didn’t save her because I thought she was beautiful. Then a black woman came from around the cooking area I guess and went in through the entrance and said to me angrily, I guess something like, “Why did you take her out?” and I think she also said, “Now they people will have nothing to eat,” and I replied calmly and without fear, “She’s human.” I think then I yelled things at her, but I don’t know what, it may have been complete nonsense since I don’t remember saying anything specific, just an angry outburst.

Someone sitting next to me then said, quietly, “I learned they were human too.”

The interpretation of the dream:

I think “they” meant “pygmies”, like the ones in Africa, and that my anger at Ian Punnet, that false Christian leader who insulted the Christians in Africa and Mideast who die for their religion were represented in my dream by the oppressed pygmies, and the oven part was a reference to how one boy was set on fire by Muslims when he wouldn’t denounce Jesus as his God. The first and last part of my dream had something to do with women I was interested in, big surprise there. I got no where with them though, as usual. It wasn’t a useless dream to me, it let me know for myself that I wasn’t a fake, as I’d wondered before sleeping if I was angry at Ian merely for being a pathological liar about the Bible and religion in general, or really was concerned for the lives of anyone in general. Now I know.

Ian Punnet Equates Lying and Racism In the Quran With ”Killing” In the Bible

February 26, 2012 Leave a comment

On Saturday, very early in the morning, on Coast to Coast AM, the heretic Ian Punnet, whose ears God struck, once again defamed and slandered God. A caller called in to say that he had great concern as to whether or not Muslims could be trusted in general anymore because of their repeated extreme violence in contrast to the reaction of Christians (when things like a “holy book” are burned). Ian’s idiot response was right out of the Shallow Handbook of Atheist and Pagan Arguments Against Christians. Yet Ian claims to be a Christian deacon, and makes himself out to be a scholar and a good person. The caller added to his reasoning was that the Quran says that Muslims are not to befriend Christians or Jews and to lie to them, which is a fact. Ian then replied that he would hope that Christians wouldn’t be judged the way this man was judging Muslims, and that the Bible for example (Ian’s false example) gives “Christians the right to kill people of cities they conquered.” That’s nearly the exact statement with no meaningful difference. Ian’s terrible argument is the argument of atheists and pagans who take verses out of context. Ian might as well have said, “The Bible is not all right, it has mistakes” which is a lie, and negates the authority of the Bible, and makes man the ultimate judge over what God’s word and what is morally right or wrong. First of all, the verse or passage he is referring to does not say, “Christians have the right to conquer and kill you.” Second, it’s not implied. Third, it’s GOD’S RIGHT to have “Christians” or Jews or anyone conquer or kill whomever he wants unless God had said before that he would not do so, especially if he promised not to. Ian obviously disagrees that God has the right do change the leadership a person has or to take away their life, why else would he have said that? Fourth, think about how evil Ian’s comparison is, he compared conquering and killing (not murdering) to being something evil like lying, racism and hatred. Is conquering necessarily equal to lying, racism and hatred? Was ancient Rome when it was conquering, being racist? Did they say, “We are trying to conquer you Celts because you are white.”? No they didn’t, that isn’t why they tried to conquer them. What about killing, is killing a sheep or a person in war no different than lying? Obviously these aren’t the same things. Further, killing a person won’t necessarily send them to right to Hell, but if you lie to them, and tell them that it’s good to murder, and to take verses in the Bible out of context and to obey the Quran when it says not to befriend Christians or Jews, and to lie to them and randomly terrorize them, and to heavily tax non-Muslims, no matter what, you could provoke someone to hate the true God and everyone else and to then end up in Hell from having been corrupted. Ian, as a deacon, and not a mere Christian, is required to know easy-to-figure-out things like that about the Bible and morality. And does killing equate to not befriending a person necessarily? Is it necessarily an unfriendly act? Even the heretic Ian, a liberal heretic who believes homosexuality is good, and that demons don’t exist (because there couldn’t possibly be bad angels, because… why?!) would probably agree that if you kill someone to end their chronic pain if it’s preventing a person from enjoying life, and that there’s no sign of it stopping, is a good thing too. So then he most likely contradicted himself that killing can only be a bad thing. Further, if God commanded a Christian to execute a Christian friend of that Christian for having murdered some liberal narcissist like Ian Punnet, would the Christian doing the executing necessarily be doing a hateful thing to his friend, or could he simply be carrying out God’s justice? The answers are obvious to anyone who has a decent understanding of Bible basics and morality, and God, all of which Ian doesn’t have, and yet he points out often, that he’s a deacon.

When the caller said that Christians didn’t have the same reaction as Muslims to things like the burning of a holy book, Ian said as if it were fact that that wasn’t true by saying to go to the deep south (of the US) and to announce that you’re going to burn a Bible and give your name and number out and I think he said address. He repeated that, and then said, “We can go on like this all night” which to me implied that Ian had memorized cheap shot attacks against Christians, and not just that stereotype. Question: Why has Ian memorized the attacks against Christianity, and not the defenses? What kind of Christian deacon is that? Is he possibly sick in the head with a deep hatred for Christians? Why else would he stereotype “deep southern Christians” so emphatically? What is his evidence that Christians there will become physically violent and go on a days long murder spree if you announce, merely announce you will burn a Bible? Muslims in all areas of the world have a long endless history of severe violence and racism towards Jews, this isn’t true with a large majority of Reformed Christians (who are a large minority, not a small cult, and therefore are significant and Christians cannot simply be generalized as all being the same), whose violence has been sporadic and contained to small areas. The bad spots were entirely from the Dutch, who in their attempt to free themselves from Catholic control, made war with them, and it wasn’t some endless war spanning hundreds of years and in which the Dutch tried to conquer any Catholic cities, again, it was a war to gain independence. The other was the Salem Witch Trials, and another was when a few Quakers were executed when they kept trespassing onto their land and preaching their version of the gospel to them (which is also harassment). Another possible spot is when Willem Kieft, a psychopath hired by the Dutch West India Company to make peace with the Native Americans (for business reasons, not religious), instead, brutally massacred between 80-120 of them and later about 500 more using the help of the Mohawks and some Dutch military troops. And his fighting was not without protest from other Dutch. He was later fired. There is no evidence that Willem was a Christian, let alone one held in high esteem, or that anyone who participated in the massacre was either. And even if the Dutch in general who approved of being brutal to and robbing Native Americans were Christians, it doesn’t necessarily mean they were forgiven and had God dwelling in them, because, the Bible says, that “whoever hates his brother is a murderer” and doesn’t have eternal life. The Bible also makes it clear that there will be false Christians, including ones who will betray other Christians and teach demonic things. Further, all Christians are not Dutch, and racism has not been a major problem, unlike with cults like the Mormons. Also, it is a myth that John Calvin (a Dutch Christian who rebelled against the Catholic Church) was for burning witches and anyone teaching that is myth-spreading.(1)(2) Reformed Christians are known for their charity to impoverished countries in Africa and South America and to Haiti. Mormons, despite the racism being pointed out, DEFEND IT. For example the narcissist(s?) of the FAIRMormon wiki when referring to their former leader Joseph Fielding Smith does not say that when he implied “darkies” (blacks) were inferior was wrong to do so, but instead points their finger at the writers of a magazine called “LOOK”, by virtually saying, “But look, they are racist too because they have no pictures of blacks except in one page where they are getting charity.” And wow, how wrong to inspire charity for blacks, right? Wrong. So, let no one say that the sinful Catholics are representative of the entire church, or that the Protestants so called for protesting against them are also represented by them, especially not the distinct Reformed ones among them, so called “Calvinists” who are despised by the Catholics and other Protestants who side with the ancient heretic rival of Calvin, Jacob Arminius.

Other facts about Ian: he claimed that the KJV was NOT literal and that it was a paraphrase (I wrote about that many months ago). Ian is stupid, ignorant and despite claiming to know the Bible, is obviously a person who hates who is against the clear rules God made. If Ian doesn’t know the basics of how to defend the Bible, what is he doing playing teacher of the Bible and calling himself a deacon for? What evil people elected him deacon if he’s ignorant about how to defend God’s will? He is what the Bible calls a “false teacher” and a heretic, and is one millions of others spreading hatred of God and confusion.

Ian Punnet Heaps Up Another False Teacher on Coast to Coast AM

December 24, 2011 3 comments

Dr. Judith Orloff, a New Ager, who calls herself an intuitive and psychiatrist, is scheduled to be a guest on Coast to Coast AM tonight. Her website slogan is,

“You possess an intuitive intelligence so powerful it can
help you heal, relieve stress, and find emotional freedom”

Yet we still need Judith to tell us that and help us to use it, even though it’s powerful and we can already know things just by trying and without having to reason. Can someone give me a, “Making money off the gullible.”? And what is “intuitive intelligence”? Like all New Agers, Judith is using catchy New Age cliches. The usual are: evolve (that word copied off materialist and humanist evolutionists who also sometimes or often use the word in a vague way), healing, aura, vibration, vibrational, energy, lower energy, higher energy, higher self, lower self, negative, positive, light, love, abstract, emotional, intuition, inner self, spirit, spirituality, negative forces and positive forces. Such words and phrases are used in vague ways by New Agers, never described precisely, and that is because they are vague and abstract themselves, not thinking carefully and with precision, but carelessly and sloppily, and going with their vague feelings rather than precise and logical reasoning. They assumed that it’s a good thing to think in “abstract” ways rather than to be specific, and by doing so, are easily manipulated by Satan, who pushes and pulls at the hearts of those who are ignorant of and against God. Intuition in the way she most likely used it, means,

“direct perception of truth, fact, etc., SEPARATE from ANY reasoning process”. But when she said “intelligence” she committed a logical fallacy because the word can mean two different things in the way she used it. She wasn’t specific. It can mean, “capacity for learning, reasoning, understanding, and teaching” or ” a high mental ability” to do those things.

But, either way she’s saying a person has the ability to directly know the truth without reasoning using your mind (Satan would have everyone “think” this way, because by following your heart, you’re bound to fail and sin, because the heart as God says, is desperately wicked. And history shows how unreliable the human heart is for doing what is right and best.)

If however she specifically meant, “ability to know the truth apart from reasoning by a high mental ability to reason” she’d be contradicting herself, and that wouldn’t be surprising to me being that she’s a New Ager who thinks in abstract and vague ways rather than using careful reasoning.

On Facebook she contradicts herself again in a blurb under a picture of a person sitting on the edge of a pointed cliff. It says,

“My job as a psychiatrist is to help others find light in darkness. Don’t let the dark seduce you! The light is always there”

The contradiction is saying that the (bad) darkness has light in it that is good. How can darkness of light in it? That’s nonsensical. Further, if it’s bad how can it have good within it? If she meant, “goodness in a bad situation,” then why not just be specific and clear and say that then? If she meant, “good thoughts among your bad thoughts,” it would be pointless. So what if you have good thoughts among bad thoughts, thoughts of helping the poor among thoughts of murdering them, what about it? Is someone helped by simply saying, “You have thoughts of helping the poor, don’t think about the fact that you also feel like murdering them.” Is that how you help someone, by getting them to think about their “positive” thoughts and pretend they don’t have evil thoughts? Imagine trying to help a murderer or liar by saying, “Don’t think about the fact that you’re always lying/murdered 40 people, focus only on the good you’ve done.” Can a person become good by that, by not confessing their sins to God for forgiveness and repenting of them? To say to someone, “Deal with your evil impulses by thinking only about the good you’ve done,” is the same as saying, “Ignore your never-ending evil desires by thinking about doing honorable things or thinking about honorable things you’ve done, and by doing that, you’ll no longer have evil desires.” But what is the evidence of that? What’s the evidence that ignoring your guilt by thinking of doing good deeds or on your good deeds is healthy, will set you, “emotionally free” whatever that means, and will get rid of “the darkness” whatever that is? Vague, vague, vague, baseless, baseless, baseless! Her “therapy” and “counseling” is useful for turning someone into a psychopath, sociopath or narcissist if it were started early enough on someone, and faciliates the ones who are adults. To say, “It’s good to be emotionally free” is horrible. It’s like saying, “It’s good to do whatever you feel like doing, to be like a wild animal, and to have no self control.”

She described her “help” accurately by claiming that she was someone who could find light in the darkness; she thinks evil (negativity) can produce good, or has goodness (positivity) in it.

Update 10:48 PM: Judith just said “linear knowledge” to solve brain problems isn’t the only way. What does that mean? And then said that “just because something sounds right doesn’t mean it’s true.” But then a few words later contradicted by saying that if it doesn’t feel right it can’t be true. It’s a contradiction because a thing can sound right either based on how you feel, think or all three. It’s a perfect example of how New Agers don’t make sense because they use a word in a way that can have multiple meanings and in this case one of them contradicts her point.

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine.
Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great
number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
2 Timothy 4:3

11:11, Synchronicities and Evidence of Intelligent Design

March 20, 2011 1 comment

About two weeks ago I think, while looking up more information on Srinivasa Ramanujan, a super mathematical genius who shamed atheists and Hinduism by his belief in some sort of God and gods etc., and because by obeying the Hindu religion his life was cut short, probably the greatest Indian who ever lived next to Christian ones (which shames Hinduism in that they lost their best man). Well, I found some British radio show on him, and downloaded it, and learned of a mathematical law, which is that the number one shows up the most frequently out of all other numbers. Those with a large amount of understanding and a brain might think, “Shouldn’t all numbers how up equally as much as the other since the universe is just random?” But the answer, is, NO. First of all, the universe isn’t random, it always follows laws that God put in place, always follows them unless he intervenes or changes them. To say otherwise is to make a Randomness of the Gaps, and to claim that “randomness did it” (for those of you who don’t know what I mean, I’m pointing out the hypocrisy of those who believe in randomness who also mock Christians by pretending that they merely explain why anything is by claiming merely that, “God did it” and claim such a God is a God of the gaps (gaps meaning “gaps in Christian knowledge” implying that Christians are very ignorant in the context these idiots use it in).

ANYWAYS, concerning George Noory’s claim that people are always seeing 11:11 when they look at a clock, I don’t know if he is right, since people look at clocks all the time and don’t see that number. George is probably imagining this because it’s four ones in a row, which he thinks is weirder than other number patters. It’s as silly as attributing something special to the number 100 or the year 1111 or 2000 or 2111 or 2222. However, you would see the number 1 more often then other numbers, so, if you see it more often on clocks when you do look, that isn’t out of the ordinary. To me it’s another indication that God exists. The number one being the most common number reminds me of Fibonacci numbers and the  chirality phenomenon, which is a name for the right-sided characteristic which all molecules in the human body have (and God made it that way).

And the reason I made this post (had finished most of it yesterday) was because a Buddhist or fan of Buddha put 11:11 in the subject of his email to me, which, in a way, was perpetuating the natural frequency of the number, which ironically, got me to write about it.

After I was done with this post, which didn’t include the above sentence, or this one, I glanced at my viewership stats, and was astonished a little when I saw the stats for the most viewed “page”, and then looked farther down, and was astonished again. This is what I saw some minutes ago… (I just looked at the clock and it’s 11:16 PM):

Update 3/23/2011:

I forgot to show this pic yesterday, which I took after I woke up and looked at my stove clock for the first time that day:

The clock was an hour behind.

Unholy Ian Punnett and Monica Holy: Two Confused ”New Age” Teachers

July 12, 2010 8 comments

Tonight, the heretic Ian Punnett had on an “afterlife paramedic” named Monica, who said that “on the other side” (some vague place where spirits can be seen) “there is no right, there is no wrong” and that “there’s an equal shift of giving and receiving”. So it’s not wrong to lie or steal or abuse anyone, and of course, stereotypical meaningless vague New Age babble about giving and receiving stuff in equal amounts. It’s a common tactic of Satan to try and comfort people by talking about “balance” and “equality” and being vague about what is meant and avoiding specific details, the idea being to make it harder for people to spot obvious contradictions. It would be like a liberal saying, “Children are equal to adults” and not saying in what way or literally meaning what they said. Monica might as well have said, “Everything is equal”, which would have been just as false and without evidence.

Ian asked her if there was a maleveolant force, and she said that she’d experienced “various dark energies in various forms”. Yet more vaguenes with no reference to Satan or other demons. She didn’t say, “Yes I saw a bad person” or “bad being” or “evil”, which would have directly contradicted her statement about there being no right or wrong, so she used the vague word, “negative”, a word which weasels (like fake Christians and anti-Christians) often use in place of “evil”, “wrong” and “bad” in order to avoid being being accused of “judging” or “condemning”. False Christians will also use “Satanic” in addition to “negative”. It stems from their hatred, ironically, of God’s laws, which also ironic, is a Satanic attitude itself, and definitely “negative”.

At about 1:12 A.M. (mountain time), after I had written the above: Almost immediately after a commercial break, Monica told Ian, “I found… an equilibrium” and a few seconds after that she’d encountered a “negative energy” and called it “an equilibrium setting”. Just as I said, “equality” is used as a catch word (by such non-Christians).

1:27 AM: More narcissist, word salad New Age babble from Monica: After being asked by Ian if there was a Heaven or Hell, she gave the cliche, “I believe Hell is of our own making… it really is… there’s different levels of frequency where emotions are concerned… there’s vibrating… there’s lower frequency emotions.” Again, it’s also a typical tactic of Satan to use “high words” that people don’t understand, and applying them in ways that make them seem understandable but are vague and nonsensical, and then getting other ignoramuses to repeat them in those wrong ways, and worse, which inflates their pride because they think they are saying something profound and wise. George Noory does it when he uses the word “dimensional” in a sentence like, “Are these beings dimensional or are they physical” which makes an illogical contrast between dimensional and physical, as if they were opposite and incompatible things, when they are not. Dimensional simply means,
having dimensions” not “spiritual” or “from another universe” or
from another dimension (that we can’t perceive)” as George incorrectly implies it means.

It’s really sad that so many people are confused like this and buy into the kind of nonsense that Ian, George and Monica put out, and wor3savesave resse, binds people more greatly on their way to Hell.

At about 1:48, Monica said that she believed that people chose to be born in their circumstances (for example homeless or disabled), and Ian replied, I find the idea of predestination very Calvinist, it’s very old school, I don’t know if I can accept that. Ian’s complaint was absurd and nonsensical since Monica was saying that we with out will were choosing our circumstance before hand, not “God does”. That is just another example of how stupid and ignorant and nonseniscal Ian’s reasoning is when it comes to anything that has to do with religion in general. He’s clearly, to those who can see, spiritually blind.

It would have been appropriate however, if Ian had asked Monica, “So you’re saying that if a little kid is sexuallyy abused, it’s okay, because they wanted to be sexually abused? Or if someone is raped it’s not really raped because they wanted to have sex?” So Monica not only has said that there is no right or wrong wherever it is she believes that spirits exist, but has also implied that there is no right or wrong where physical beings exist. Yet more justification criminal behavior.

Monica also said that dogs can see the “infrared plane” and that she had heard that it was a plane (as in a spiritual plane of existance). The infrared is actually a form of light, not a place or plane. Ian shamefully didn’t correct her, or was ignorant about this too. “Plane” is another one of those catch words that ignorant people fancy using, especially those who regard themselves as “spiritual”. To say “plane” in reference to spiritual places seems to me to be a Dungeons and Dragons invention, a fancy word in place of “place”. It’s also nonsensical since it implies that spiritual places are flat, or have flat surfaces. It reminds me of people who supposedly believed that Earth was flat. No surprise that make-believe books are part of the source of such New Age beliefs.

Europe’s Catholic Churches face wave of sex abuse charges

Europe’s Catholic Churches face wave of sex abuse charges, fear more to come

by Shawn Pogatchnik

DUBLIN — It often starts as a voice in the wilderness, but can swell into an entire nation’s demand for truth. From Ireland to Germany, Europe’s many victims of child abuse in the Roman Catholic church are finally breaking social taboos and confronting the clergy to face its demons.

Ireland was the first in Europe to confront the church’s worldwide custom of shielding pedophile priests from the law and public scandal. Now that legacy of suppressed childhood horror is being confronted in other parts of the Continent — nowhere more poignantly than in Germany, the homeland of Pope Benedict XVI.

The recent spread of claims into the Netherlands, Austria and Italy has analysts and churchmen wondering how deep the scandal runs, which nation will be affected next, and whether a tide of lawsuits will force European dioceses to declare bankruptcy like their American cousins.

“You have to presume that the cover-up of abuse exists everywhere, to one extent or another. A new case could appear in a new country tomorrow,” said David Quinn, director of a Christian think tank, the Iona Institute, that seeks to promote family values in an Ireland increasingly cool to Catholicism.

Quinn noted that stories of systemic physical, sexual and emotional abuse circulated privately in Irish society for decades, but only moved aboveground in the mid-1990s when former altar boy Andrew Madden and orphanage survivor Christine Buckley went public with lawsuits and exposes of how priests and nuns tormented them with impunity.

Floodgates opened for Irish complaints that have topped 15,000 in this country of 4 million. Three government-ordered investigations have shocked and disgusted the nation, which has footed most of the bill to settle legal claims topping euro1 billion (nearly $1.5 billion).

“A lot comes down to: When does that first victim gather the courage to come forward into the spotlight?” Quinn said. “It seems to take that trigger event, the lone voice who says what so many kept silent so long. That’s basically happening now in Germany. It could happen next in Spain, Poland, anywhere.”

In January, an elite Jesuit school in Berlin declared it was aware of seven child-abuse cases in its past and appointed an outside investigator, Ursula Raue, to seek testimony. Within weeks, she had gathered stories of long-suppressed woe from more than 100 ex-students abused by their Jesuit masters, and from 60 molested by parish priests. – <a href=”Europe’s Catholic Churches face wave of sex abuse charges, fear more to come by Shawn Pogatchnik 3/14/2010/12:43 AM EST DUBLIN — It often starts as a voice in the wilderness, but can swell into an entire nation’s demand for truth.

Apparently the Catholic Church decided not to meet my challenge to stop abusing children.

One day God will give this command to those in that “Church” whom he plans to save:

Then I heard another voice from heaven say: ‘Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues'” – Revelation 18:4

I wonder if the heretic Catholic and famous radio show host George Noory, will report this story tonight. Oh wait, I think George Knapp is the Coast to Coast AM host tonight.

Update, 11:07 P.M.:

To my disgust it’s Ian Punnet on tonight, and he said about his guest last night, the heretic and blasphemer Bart Ehrman, “Gosh I liked last night’s show.” On top of that he’s agreeing with Ehrman that there are contradictions in the original languages. What a disgusting jerk. There is no excuse for ignorance on the topic of contradictions in the Bible.

Update, 11:12 P.M.:

Ian is doing the news, but isn’t mentioning this Catholic child-abuse story. Instead his first story was on dog-growling, right now he’s talking about who D.B. Cooper might be yet again, and joking about being him. What an evil idiot.

Update 11:15 P.M.:

Ian didn’t mention anything about the Catholic child-abuse story in his very short list of Coast to Coast featured news stories.

Catholic schools at center of sexual abuse scandal

by Kirsten Grieshaber of the Associated Press
3/15/2010

BERLIN — It happened for years, again and again. Every morning before class, the boys had to undress and Father Ludger Stueper sprayed them with cold water from the hose, front and back.

The boys also had to lie down on Stueper’s couch where the Roman Catholic priest would take their temperature — rectally for seven minutes.

And then there were the photos.

“One time, Stueper took pictures of a friend and me while we were in the shower. He also made us go outside and we had to pose naked for him, lean against stones and trees in the park, the foam from the shampoo still in our hair,” recalled Miguel Abrantes, a former student at the Jesuit-run boarding school Aloisius Kolleg in Bonn.

Abrantes, now 37 and an actor in Duesseldorf, is one of the few victims willing to speak out about the abuse and humiliation he suffered as an 11-year-old boy at the school.

He is one of at least 150 victims in an ever-widening scandal involving allegations of priests sexually abusing their pupils at several Catholic high schools across Germany. The scandal has spiraled since seven alumni of the prestigious Catholic Canisius Kolleg in Berlin first came forward with allegations of abuse in January, shocking the homeland of Pope Benedict XVI.

While the focus of the sex abuse scandal in the Catholic church centered on the United States for several years, abuse scandals have in recent years erupted in other countries as well, including Ireland, the Philippines, Poland, Mexico, Italy, Canada and elsewhere. – More here.

Noory’s Numerological Nonsense and More Close Encounters With Ian Punnet’s Stupidity

March 13, 2010 3 comments

On March 6, 2010(?), I ended up being wrong about Ian Punnet (one of the hosts of the popular New Age movement promoting show Coast to Coast AM) not cutting off callers in the middle of their stories. He did so recently for no good reason to a man who said he had had a close encounter in the 60’s with aliens and had never told the story to anyone. The man was elderly sounding, but was telling his story just fine, and he wasn’t rambling or ranting and he hadn’t gone on for long. When this man said he saw a control panel in the UFO he was taken into, Ian, rather than letting the man say if anything had been said to him or ask him for more specific details, cut him off with a distressed voice asking, “but do you have a question for the author?” How about letting him finish first? He wasn’t giving a story about how boring it is to fast or how he likes to count his fingers or stare at cows all day; he was giving a very interesting out of the ordinary story of the nearly miraculous kind, and of the kinds of stories that Coast to Coast AM is supposed to be covering. Yet you cut him off, saying that the background echo was driving him crazy (which only Ian could hear – well how about asking him to turn off his radio genius?) just so the author can say, “Oh yes Native Americans have encountered UFOs”. And no: Ian wasn’t up against a commercial break as some of you idiot C2C AM worshipers might think: The next caller gave a boring as Hell story about a UFO; a typical colored-lights-in-the-sky story.

And last night into the early morning, the heretic Catholic George Noory wasted the world’s time with about three hours of babble from a regular numerologist who gives people false hope and dread over something as stupid as when they were born and the numerical value of their names. A problem with numerology of the kind that just occurred to me after writing that previous sentence is that Glynis only, and for no logical reason, focuses on the numbers of certain aspects of a person’s life. What about their zipcode, longitude and latitude location, location with respect to certain buildings, how many blades of grass they are standing on, how many clouds are over head, how many cars nearby, how many times they used the same word, how many times they combed their hair that day, how many hairs on their head they have, how many hairs they lost or cut and on what day, how many molecules their body is made up of, how many pounds a person weighs how many people are nearby or far away, how many teeth they have – why don’t any of those matter in Glynis’ or any numerologists explanations for why good or bad things have or will happen in a person’s life, why is the focus mainly on names and dates?

Notice how this numerologist here doesn’t say a thing about why the numerological value of Donald Trump’s name him more successful in business than others or instead why he had success in specific business ventures, but simply asks a pretentious question or two, like, “Well would you pay attention to him if his name was Don?”

The reason for numerologists disregarding numerological factors is because it is inconvenient for them, would take them forever to analyze the numerical value of all things in the universe and it would be too hard for most of them to make money or get praise by doing such a thing, as most people still have enough sense to realize that such a thing is impossible for man and that only an insane person would spend a long time trying.

If you want your child to have a successful life, take the Bible’s advice and choose a good one, not a weird or odd one that suits your personal fancy. What’s a good one? One that doesn’t mean something evil for one, or that sounds evil, or sounds like a joke. People with strange names (in relation to the culture that they are in) have a higher probability of committing more crimes than the average person: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/jan/29/study-links-unusual-surnames-to-criminality

Scientific Experiments to Prove or Disprove Numerology and Astrology

Set up an experiment in which people with lucky and unlucky names, birth-dates and address numbers are given an equal challenge to find hidden money or something valuable of some sort, which if they can find may keep. Perform the experiment in one place with a lucky address on the same the lucky day and hour. Make sure that each of the participants fell asleep at a lucky hour and woke up eight or nine hours later on a lucky hour before on the day of the experiment, but before performing the experiment (so that everyone is well-rested and didn’t “jinx” themselves by falling asleep and awakening on unlucky hours). Make sure that all your participants are of about equal intelligence. Another thing to make sure of is that what you’ve hidden can be found without taking forever, other wise the experiment may take forever or you may not be able to complete enough of them, especially if the participants have a job to get to on that day or must take care of their family.

Make sure you that have many participants so that you have a significant sample size to come up with statistics on. If lucky names, dates and address numbers are able to affect success, then each of the participants should on average have the same success or failure at finding about the same amount of money or things worth about the same amount of money in about the same amount of time.

After gathering the test results, perform the experiment again, but at that time using unlucky address numbers, sleeping and waking times, and an unlucky day.

An alternative or additional experiment you could hopefully do would be to change the challenge from seeing who can find the most money or things worth the most, to something more simple, like who can burn a hole in piece of paper on concrete using the exact same magnifying glass and same type of paper (without gasoline on the concrete or anything else flammable on the concrete or nearby obviously), and do this on an unlucky and lucky hour, and lucky and lucky day, while the sun is shining bright and there are little to no clouds blocking the sun. If luck really does exist and the number of your name, address, and birth date and date of the experiment influences it, then some people should fail to burn a hole in the paper or have a harder time doing so then others. For example a freak cloud should appear to block out the sun, or an earthquake that scare some of the participants off, or fire ants suddenly biting one or more people and preventing them from having success, or some other incident or incidents getting in the way. And you could even have a experimenter take your place who doesn’t know why the experiments are being performed so that you cannot bias the experiments by interfering with the results somehow either deliberately or accidentally.

These same experiments can be applied to astrology by choosing people born at certain times, and choosing people born in each of the Zodiac sections, and seeing if some perform better then others based on what Zodiac type they fit into. To increase the evidence for your study, perform the experiments on days in which some often used types of astrology predicts a good or bad day or successful or unsuccessful day, etc. and try experiments with a few obscure types of traditional astrology (instead of endlessly testing new methods which I’m guessing, based on my experience, won’t have any evidence for them being accurate either).

What One Numerologist Has To Say About the Influence of Numbers On Luck

Name Numerology : an art full of contradiction ? – Why people with lucky names fail and those with unlucky name succeed.

It is true that numbers influence our life but they are not the decisive factor of our fate. There are many other things (known and unknown), which also influence our life to a great deal along with numbers. Therefore, a complete dependency on numbers, while deciding the future course of action, is neither necessary nor recommended. – Source

The evidence for numerology is absolute zero and it is clearly arbitrary. And once again: When will the Pope or George’s priest excommunicate him for heresy and for promoting the heresies of others and witchcraft? Does anyone agree that Catholics are false Christians?
