Global warming is dead. Long live, er, 'Global climate disruption'!


And the coolest (?) part of all? Without man’s interference, none of this would have happened. No warming, no cooling, no change at all. Just Paradise. But without man, who would care?

What is a counterfeit?

If I had a coin and both sides were either heads or tails, but not both, would it be legal tender?
If I had a coin and both sides were either heads or tails, but not one of each, would my collection of coins be enhanced? If so, then how?

Except for the "freakish" part which has a certain "sideshow" quality to it, what is it about this "accident" that makes my collection of coins worth as much as it might be, having all coins with heads on one side and tails on the other?

If I found coins like this in my collection, I would conclude that they were not genuine but were, in fact, accidents or counterfeit; but certainly not as intended. And certainly of no use, as such, to the enhancement of my collection.

What about "fake fashion"? Fake Gucci, Armani and the like. Does owning a fake make your attire as valid as that of one who owns the original? Of course, there will be those who prefer the fake quality of their accessories... that may find a certain excitement in having illicit goods. A bit freakish, maybe.

So, what about a same sex relationship, two heads or two tails: does calling itself a marriage make it any less counterfeit to the name and purpose of "marriage" as the word was conceived? Yes, of course it is a relationship. A homosexual relationship; that is to say, a relationship, odd to a purposeful design -counterfeit- and can only be called a marriage if the definition of the word is changed to accommodate this uniqueness, not unlike a freakish find, a counterfeit.

And why would we not just call it something else since it is, in reality, something else? And, if the purpose of heterosexual design is deemed not purposeful at all, as there was no Designer to supply any purpose, then why have a marriage at all? Animals don't have a marriage. They don't need one to behave as animals. It's natural to them to be so.

Clinton condemns Quran-burning plan -

Burning the Koran is insensitive. Building the GZ mosque, Cordoba House is insensitive. Christians are asked not to burn the Koran because it will jeopardize American lives. Why? Because when Christians are insulted, as in Cordoba House, they are taught to “turn the other cheek”. In contrast, when Muslims are insulted, even by cartoons, they are instructed in the Koran to kill the offender. Hence the threat to American lives from burning Korans.

The biggest difference between the two teachings? Christianity promotes life and peace; Islam promotes death  and conquest.

What do they have in common? Protection under the Constitution of The United States, the country Islam would destroy.

European pressure mounts on Iran over stoning case - Yahoo! News

Clearly, the tenets of Faithful Islam fail to merge with the World at Large. But then, faithful Muslims need not merge when they intend to conquer, marking their victory sites with mosques.

The Associated Press: Vatican: stoning in Iran adultery case 'brutal'

The Pope is wrong! They are PEACEFUL, dammit! 

The Associated Press: Vatican: stoning in Iran adultery case 'brutal'

Junior jihadists don't kid around -

Control the youth, control the future.
That's why the government has a Department of Education, yet they have educated no one.
They do control what is taught, however, by controlling the dollars available to do so.

Some Christian kids spend their summers doing mission work, helping the needy.

But if you’re religion is peaceful, then there are other pursuits.

A German's View of Islam

A German’s point of view on Islam

by Paul E. Marek

from (forwarder) Dr Emanual Tanay

[If you appreciate this article, perhaps you'd like to read Rev Dr Mark Durie's article 'Isa the muslim Jesus "]

A man whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War ll owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.'Very few people were true Nazis 'he said,' but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.

'We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam. The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history.It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. The hard quantifiable fact is that the 'peaceful majority', the 'silent majority', is cowed and extraneous.

Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.The average Japanese individual prior to World War ll was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilian s; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.And, who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghan is, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.

As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts: the fanatics who threaten our way of life.Lastly, at the risk of offending, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems of expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world wide, read this - think about it - and send it on.
