a comment or discussion that does not relate directly to the main subject being discussed
Various comments and remarks expressed, observations made and questions posed from times past at ETPR.
MAY 17, 2013
Pat Robertson tells wife of cheating husband to be grateful of marriage and make the home enticing (video) – (h/t:E) An abominably false teacher. Notice how Robertson justifies adultery with material possessions. (Does he provide a good home? Clothing? Food to eat, etc?)
This article does a good job documenting that this is only the latest in a long, long list of Robertson transgressions against Christianity.
In January, Robertson told viewers that “awful-looking” women can cause marriages to lose their spark.
Similarly, in 2010 the host advised a woman complaining about her husband’s flirtatious ways not to “hassle him about it” and just make herself as attractive as possible.
He also once told a husband upset that his wife didn’t respect him that he could always just “become a Muslim and you could beat her.”
“”I hate Alzheimer’s. It is one of the most awful things, because here’s the loved one — this is the woman or man that you have loved for 20, 30, 40 years, and suddenly that person is gone … I know it sounds cruel, but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but to make sure she has custodial care, somebody looking after her.” (The 700 Club, Sept. 13, 2011)”
Pat Robertson’s words brings reproach to the name of Christ.
Report: 10,700 Men Raped in the U.S. Military – No wonder the Pentagon was so anxious to bring open homosexuality into the barracks…
Pentagon recognizes transgender service members for first time in ‘symbolic’ move for LGBT community – Our military has become a hollow shell–except when taking on unarmed civilians. But stories like this demonstrate that it was a consciously planned process–not one that just “happened.”
Two ‘known or suspected’ terrorists vanished from witness program – Isn’t that the purpose of witness protection programs?
Is there a morale crisis in the U.S. nuclear force? – There is a morale crisis almost everywhere one looks these days–except in the heart that has Jesus.
Question: Why is the guy in the video–supposedly a Christian–wearing a Gothic Cross around his neck? There are Christians who sport these crosses on their cars and bumpers and elsewhere. Most do it out of ignorance, but some…?!? As someone stated when the cross was pointed out, “Isn’t that the Satanic cross?” Not exactly–but it will do in a pinch…
Meaning of Various Crosses – Because–as it says–you do “not have to worry about someone mistaking your gothic cross tattoo for a Christian tattoo.”
Obama calls in Marines to shield him from the Rain – Great example of the distracting non-story that fills the contemporary corporate media. What made this story interesting: The picture of Obama at the top of the article. Is he aging right before America’s eyes? OR, is he being made to APPEAR like he’s aging right before our eyes? The White House has a full staff dedicated to the way the President appears in public. Nothing escapes their notice. LIKE HOLLYWOOD–that Ultimate City of Deception–If the president is looking visibly older and more haggard, it’s because he is made up to appear that way.
Toxic arsenic found in 90% of chicken meat – It’s believable about the arsenic. What’s a little hard to swallow is the reason. What is completely, totally unbelievable is that the FDA–and other so-called “federal watchdogs” aren’t completely complicit. Notice that the article just breezes right by that fact–one small paragraph. The article sums up this situation by claiming “This is a vote for ‘organic’.” No, it’s another vote for “Our country has become the property of criminal enterprises.”
MAY 18-19, 2013
IRS asked pro-life group about content of their prayers – The equation of perpetual perversity: “That which was perverse yesterday is news today and becomes routine tomorrow.”
It’s all part of the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan. These are the six steps:
- Some practice so offensive that it can scarcely be discussed in public is advocated by a RESPECTED expert in a RESPECTED forum.
- At first, the public is shocked, then outraged.
- But, the VERY FACT that such a thing could be publicly debated becomes the SUBJECT of the debate.
- In the debate, sheer repetition of the shocking subject gradually dulls its effect.
- People then are no longer shocked.
- No longer outraged, people begin to argue for positions to moderate the extreme; or, they accept the premise, challenging, instead, the means to ACHIEVE it.
When you think about it, every perversity of the last 60 years has followed this model to achieve widespread public acceptance in the USA (homosexual ‘marriage, abortion on demand, the welfare state, drug legalization, the state raising children instead of parents, many of the doctrines now being taught in churches, eliminating the name of Jesus in public, etc).
There will never be a lack of those who want to be on the “cutting edge of societal change.” These people are the ones who implement step #1. The tightly-controlled Corporate Media (including the ‘Christian’ mass media) accomplish #3 and #4. The compromising, go-along-to-get-along American public–and particularly the compromising Church–eventually shrug their shoulders and complete the process.
Russia reveals identity of CIA chief in Moscow – Why there should be “gentlemen’s agreements” between two bitter enemies always mystified this writer.
The downside of digital multi-tasking – It makes people slower on the uptake. When you take a step back and think about it: how can this NOT be true? Who are the best at digital multi-tasking? The attention-span-challenged youth generation. Yet, the critical thinking skills of this group are abysmal.
Critical thinking has been programmed out of education by the public schools over the last 60 years. This accounts for why our elders were much better at picking up on basic deceptions than later American generations. To avoid a public outcry over the state of this generation’s non-education, proficiency at non-skills like playing video games, manipulating an iPhone or holding one’s breath were substituted for math and English composition.

Federal government now installing infra-red sensors along entire southern border – Why now? Why close the border AFTER the immigration bills admits tens of millions of new illegals legally?
Maybe it’s to monitor people trying to get OUT?!?
Sometimes I get something in the email that demands a comment.Rush Limbaugh runs interference for Barack Obama – To those who still believe that Rush Limbaugh isn’t worth the $$$ his handlers are paying him: he’s worth every penny. Limbaugh is claiming that it means nothing that half the country want Obama impeached.
““We can’t impeach Obama, it isn’t gonna happen,” radio powerhouse Rush Limbaugh said on his program Monday, “but we can impeach the Democratic Party and get it out of town by voting them out.”
Half the country wants to impeach Obama? Rush Limbaugh will make sure that movement doesn’t gather much steam.
The talk radio host always has a reason why real change cannot occur. He always has a reason why his show will not cover particular, newsworthy topics. He always has a distraction ready for listeners to occupy their time. Think about it: what has Limbaugh ever done? He creates controversies over inconsequential trivialities. Rush Limbaugh is not the only one plying this trade–he’s only the best at it. That is why he gets paid the money he does: He directs public anger by first creating and then funneling it into particular causes that are non-threatening to the established order.. In short, he’s good at herding his portion of public opinion–and that’s why he gets paid the big bucks.
Man kills biggest Burmese python EVER in FL – At some point, they ought to put a big fence around the state of Florida and send anyone convicted of a crime to serve out their sentence there…

44% Think Interest Rates Will Be Higher In A Year – Proof that 44% have this basic understanding of economics…
Asteroid nine times the size of an ocean liner headed toward earth – Right on cue. Every two or three weeks, something from outer space is headed toward earth…
=========THEY KNOW HOW===========
Every once in a while, behind closed doors, journalists demonstrate that they can tell the truth…“
There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar weekly salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.
The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”
–John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff for the New York Times, New York Press Club in 1880. (h/t:M)
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
