THE UK DRIBBLES INTO FARCE

 The time when we begin to look rather silly. When Parliament's posturing dribbles into insignificance. When boys play spot the 'pick-up' truck and the arms industry is grateful that the US are boosting its coffers even if the UK isn't. Cameron ought to end this farce and stop sullying the UK's reputation with a self interested and compromised foreign policy.

MELANIE REID - IT'S NOT ABOUT NEWMARK'S GENITALS

 Reid has tried to give a 'sexy' response and has failed woefully by missing the issues at stake. Yes, the young and many of the old are sexually liberated and liberal compared to previous times, however this is not about sexting. Newmark's reprehensible choices were infidelity, exposing his five children and family to embarrassment and seeking extramarital sexual stimulation with a woman of his offspring's age. None of these gain admiration from any generation.

THE RICH VERSUS PEA SHOOTER ENEMIES

 The UK bombs the poor. Israel bombs the poor. The U.S. bombs the poor. Saudi Arabia bombs the poor. Bahrain bombs the poor. Jordan bombs the poor. The United Arab Emirates bomb the poor. Qatar bombs the poor. Other European nations bomb the poor. A litany of rich nations bomb the poor. It is an outrage that somehow slips undetected by 'decent' people, by much of the media, by governments and by the United Nations. While the military machines of the powerful crank into action against their knife wielding and pea shooter enemies, will, one day, these genocidal violations be brought before the ICC?

ARCHBISHOP WELBY'S DIVINE MESSAGE

"The action proposed today is right" states the spokesperson for Jesus, the Archbishop of Canterbury. So we can sleep tonight! God's on our side - Go get 'em boys is the message from the Church of England's fat pulpit. The action will boost their investment coffers, strengthen their financial portfolio and enable the Church Commissioners to maximise their income. And don't fret about any collateral damage.  Welby may well be offering this prayer tonight for the nation - Dear God, thanks for always being on the side of the rich and powerful. Thanks that we are safe and sound and able to press buttons and vaporise our enemies. Of course I remember the innocent victims of our action and am grateful that having commended them into your safe keeping, I can wash my conscience of the whole dirty business and suffer no indigestion when next I dine with Her Majesty. Aaaah Men will be Men.

THE BARBARIAN BEHEADERS - OUR ALLIES.

Our friend and ally against those 'barbarians', Saudi Arabia is expert at beheading, in public.
In June 2011 Ruyati binti Satubi, an Indonesian maid, was beheaded for killing her employer's wife, reportedly after years of abuse. A video of the execution, posted online, drew extensive criticism. In September 2011, a Sudanese migrant worker was beheaded for sorcery,an execution which Amnesty International condemned as "appalling".In January 2013 a Sri Lankan maid named Rizana Nafeek was beheaded after she was convicted of murdering a child under her care, an occurrence which she attributed to the infant choking. The execution drew international condemnation of the government's practices,and led Sri Lanka to recall its ambassador.These are not isolated cases. According to figures by Amnesty International, in 2010 at least 27 migrant workers were executed and, as of January 2013, more than 45 foreign maids were on death row awaiting execution.

OUR DIRTY MISTAKE

Parliament will today witness its latest descent into populism, where many noble words will conceal the gross error being made and the innocent lives we are about to take. This vote will resign babies, suckling mothers and labouring fathers to the grave at our hands. Behind the rhetoric lie big trade prizes, oil fields, armament contracts and an increasingly deadly robotic application of war where those in cockpits or drone centres press buttons and no one sees the exploded brains of children across the ruins of their homes. As we were duped so effectively before with fear mongering tales of weapons of mass destruction, so know the propaganda machine is chillingly refined, as Khaneman's research has exposed, to ensure the majority are cheering Westminster on to release our comic strip super hero salvation. It is nothing of the sort. Only a dirty mistake arising from ignorance and arrogance that will sow again the seeds of hatred to blight the future generations.

STOP BATMAN IN HIS TRACKS

The problem that haunts us when we seek to respond to those who have suffered at the hands of ISIS is that they have been killed by armaments we produced and we supplied and the chaos we occasioned through our previous meddling in affairs to which we responded out of populist sentiment and concern to secure oil fields and trade contracts. The rich world is contaminated with super hero imagery and as film makers injected the latest Batman trilogy with soul searching about such a comic strip driven perception of rich world salvation, so we must take heed and stop our superficial catastrophic interventions.

MCDONALDS POLITICS AND BURGER KING DECISION MAKING

 Distasteful and abusive to ride on the trauma and grief of this young women to pave the way for parliament's debate. Is The Times intending to interview any family members of the 16 civilians killed by the U.S. strike in Syria this week? Perhaps no family members even remain. The U.K. is involved in knee jerk short termism lacking in depth historical analysis and long term strategic thinking. We are in the realm of McDonald's politics and Burger King decision making. Never, has the U.K. been in such a philosophical and cultural meltdown.

TRULY MEDIEVAL

David Cameron has blasted barbaric acts. “The cruelty being meted out, beheadings, eyes being gouged out, rape, is horrific. It is literally medieval in character,”
 "Beheadings" - Yes, we hung Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti in such a manner that his head ripped from his body. He was dressed in an orange jumpsuit too.
"Eyes being gouged out" -  Yes, Jesus encouraged us to gouge out eyes that were sinful -"And if your eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell."
"Rape" - Yes, 16,000 rapes were recorded  last year in the UK, 6000 of children.
And to cap it all - we are about to bomb innocent women and children. Truly medieval.

BLOOD CYCLES LEADING TO WIPE OUT

The allied action will only provoke further bloodshed. How many centuries of carnage  must pass before we commit ourselves to a different way. The fearsome truth is, that at this rate, we will destroy everything achieved thus far and the cycle of evolution may then begin again.

HA - LET'S WATCH THE MAD GUY GET EATEN

THE RICH MEGALOMANIACS ARE BOMBING AGAIN

The arms industry will be licking their fingers. The super rich alliance will be oiling their bank accounts. The rich nation's poor will be manipulated to enlist with the task of destroying the earth's poorer. Not a rich world politician's child will lose their legs, their arms or their heads at a front line. There will be banquets and limousine rides. Millionaire war mongers will straddle the globe in super jets and the great British and other publics will surrender to be brainwashed and duped. Babies will be sliced open with shrapnel, children roasted in bomb blasts, and mothers decapitated while breatsfeeding.  We will watch all this happening in our name without so much as a whimper of protest.

We gestate a war with irresponsible journalism, arms supply and mercenaries and then claim the moral high ground to grow richer as we dispense more armaments and carry out our own slaughter?

Our self justifying deities are only a front for our own aggressive tendencies. We share a common humanity with all and merely package our violence differently. Time to stop pointing the finger and learning to understand.

No one has the luxury to stand aside when we are complicit with innocent deaths and the exercise of self interested violence.

No 'God' wills violence, only those who fabricate deities and worship themselves by proxy.

I suggest many have missed the sub plot, where the rich world ravages the earth, straight jackets nations with unjust trade agreements, ignores the migrant slave trade upon which the UK and the rich world depends, grows obese in decadent living while so many crave even clean water and then delights in selling the raging poor the armaments with which battle can be engaged so that the profit levels of the armaments industries and the western economies can boom.

Who has been slaughtering and is slaughtering the innocent in their thousands? Have blinkered eyes not been reading the consequences of our war lust, not followed the rising toll of our war games?

Who is the terrorist, who is the soldier, who is the innocent? Who was the terrorist when an innocent Iraqi family was blown apart by an allied bomb? 

Look over your shoulder at the mountains of corpses from conflicts past. So many choose to be but mice on the treadmills of destruction. Life becomes weary of our incapacity to change the script, alter the plot, set out anew.

Male potentates devise male deities to muscle their way through a fragile world. Time to divest ourselves of such divine and macho follies and allow women, men and children together to carefully build the human family.

STUNNING HUMANS BEFORE THEIR BEHEADING?

So will the Islamic Medical Association not be willing to advise that humans ought to be stunned before their beheading?

Abdul Majid Katme, of the Islamic Medical Association, said: “Prophets Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad — peace be upon them — all practised and advocated the divine direct method of animal slaughter.”

“The final Prophet Muhammad — peace be upon him — in one of his sayings (hadith) emphasised the maximum bleeding out in our direct dhabh [animal slaughter].

“Blood is absolutely forbidden to consume in any way in the Koran.” 

It is incumbent upon the Muslim comunity, to be unequivocal, especially at a time such as this, about what is right and wrong.

If Islamic individuals and organisations can pronounce on issues relating to Halal meat then even more so, should they on matters relating to the treatment of human beings.

GOD SAYS KILL WESTERNERS, CHRISTIANS AND NON MUSLIMS

“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European, especially the spiteful and filthy French, or an Australian, or a Canadian ... including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him,” said Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, spokesman for the group which is also known as Isis and Isil.
“Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him.
“Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling. Both of them are disbelievers. Both of them are considered to be waging war. Both of their blood and wealth is legal for you to destroy.”

DEMON GODS

There is not one person on this earth that can be sure that God exists, not if they are being honest, objective, factual and real. They can pretend, lie, fantasise and collude with others in a pseudo scientific language of certainties. It will not assist their mental health or their emotional maturity, but they are free to do so. Just as they are free to concoct demon Gods that authorise beheadings and suicide bombings and the sending of a son to be crucified. So no one can be sure that 'God' exists. Some may choose to believe s/he exists - but they must do so in the honest tension that unless their beliefs enable them to become a good and better human being, they are an obstacle to their development and a threat to others. What I am sure of, is that LOVE exists and so much that is spoken about God, described about God and done in God's name, just as so much about those who claim to believe in God amounts to the very antithesis of LOVE.

JESUS, THE GREAT GUY

Jesus was a great guy and he had some good ideas about the mysteries of life....also some crazy ones, like the rest of us, but overall, the impact of his life was one of LOVE. What do I believe in? LOVE. If God there be, God can only be LOVE.

THE BIBLE IS ANYTHING BUT THE DIRECT WORD OF GOD!

The Bible is anything but the direct Word of God! The 'Word of God' is the human, Jesus. We know little about what he actually said. It seems though he astonished people with his capacity to love.

YES I RUN DOWN CHRISTIANITY

Yes I run down Christianity that has so little to do, if anything, with Jesus. I also rail against the false and distorting claims about the 'Christ'. Jesus, on the other hand was a human being, like us, trying to make sense of his world, making mistakes as well as expressing compassion and love. It is not 'God' that I describe as an evil sadistic tyrant, rather I point out that other humans, like the Christians, not only have described their God as such, but are willing to worship such a monster. My book urges us to be bold and resolute in casting away such atrocious human projections of our own ills onto a self justifying deity of our own creation. In their place, instead, we should be honest and humble enough,  to try and perceive what a truly good human being ought to be, and then, from free will, and not in tow to a heaven/hell delivering parent figure, set out to aspire to become it. Whatever 'God/s' there may be ( if at all )  would far prefer honest endeavour rather than servile devotees.

WHAT THE FUCK!

Finally Barbie comes of age!

PROSECUTING GRONING EXPOSES OUR PERFIDY

 How many other Gronings have been allowed to slip into obscurity and live their lives as 'ordinary' citizens bearing such vile secrets? Just as we were complicit with the holocaust outrage at the time, we have remained so ever since, harbouring war criminals, retaining stolen Jewish art treasures, profiting from raided bank accounts. We point the finger dishonestly. The rich world continues to revert to Hitler's 'Final Solution' whenever 'necessary'. Now, it is to rid the world of ISIS, before the Taliban,  Gaddafi, Saddam etc. The powerful write history and interpret events in their favour. Getting round to prosecuting an Auschwitz guard at 93 is an embarrassing expose of our perfidy.

THE FILTHY LUCRE

For the critics who are saying I am pushing my book for personal gain, I challenge you to look at my lifestyle and spending habits. There is no point in writing a book for it gather dust. People only know about the 'popular' books because the financial manipulators have paid for them to be alerted. Quality hasn't driven their success, as in so much of public life, just the filthy lucre. I am interested in justice, goodness, equality and a gentle planet where we can live together. My book is full of intent towards the same. Money drives most people. Not me.

THE FREE SPIRIT

I have no interest in money or fame. I certainly don't want the world to be in the grip of advertising moguls and billionaire backers who control the masses and direct their tastes and opinions. I have a great interest in promoting the free spirit, the lone voice, the alternative view and the unique individual contribution,  that is so often, in our macro world, consumed into a financially driven corporate soup.

LUGNER - SCHMITZ AND RICH WORLD PROSTITUTION

Rich world prostitution, with no police in sight, only the quality press fawning over the billions and exposing the moral torpidity of their interest.

HAMMOND'S NONSENSE RE HENNING

Hammond says we are powerless to help Henning. 

Nonsense.

The British Government could offer to make the billions of pounds it is about to spend on destruction available for the development of the region. It could adopt the language of conciliation that allowed a former terrorist to shake hands with the queen. It could indicate its willingness to forgo its own exponential lifestyle improvements to ensure the poor world can share the world's bounty. It could realise its cultural, religious and political bigotry and walk more humbly in our fragile world.

HARDLY HELPING GHONCHEH GHAVAMI

 The Times, while urging us to shed blood to repel ISIS, here mocks Iranian social repression. It seems the editorial pundits believe disrespect towards such a nation will assist its evolution. They write in support of such noble ends as freedom to spectate volleyball, disco dance, watch American cartoons and commit adultery. Iran will be convinced, we can be sure, by this serious presentation of our cultural superiority.

AND CARNAGE BEGETS CARNAGE

 After centuries of carnage, the elite press and its learned journalists, having taken the measure of history, ethics and enlightened understanding present us with the zenith of their wisdom - more carnage.

BECKHAM'S 'COME OUT'

Riveting news to change the world. Beckham, that erudite historian and political pundit, has 'come out' against Scottish independence.

It just goes to show that football is the only thing that really matters.......

WATTS, LUCAS AND DJANGO CHAINED!

 Discriminatory attitudes appear entrenched in the human condition. We berate, in film, those who display raw prejudice and visit it cruelly on others, but then perpetuate it ourselves outside the cinema. We are connected to every act of evil. Only by systematically and honestly identifying, educating and re-directing the evil within can we hope to begin to amend society's woes.

IAN PAISLEY - SIR NOW SAINT?

 Sir Ian, Baroness Eileen, elegiac strains, perhaps sainthood beckoning...a far cry from his former words - I denounce you, Antichrist! I refuse you as Christ's enemy and Antichrist with all your false doctrine" - addressing Pope John Paul II on a visit to the European Parliament October 1988. "This Romish man of sin is now in hell! - on the death of Pope John XXIII. "Never, never, never, never ... " - outside Belfast City Hall as he addressed tens of thousands of loyalists protesting against the signing of the November 1985 Anglo-Irish Agreement. I am not going to sit down with bloodthirsty monsters who have been killing and terrifying my people" - opposing demands to sit down and talk with Sinn Féin. Strange the games the authorities and the media play with us......

DERANGED EVIL NUNS

And the evidence keeps piling up...

Nuns pulling bed sheets tight over children's heads to restrain them, hitting them with metal spoons, making them eat in the toilet, sleep on the roof at night, even locking a 6 year old in a room with a dead nun and making another sleep beside the coffin.

Religion provides all too easy a hiding place for deranged human beings to conceal their evils.

POLICE ARREST A SEXUALLY ABUSED 12 YEAR OLD AND LET HER ABUSERS GO FREE...

 ' The police watchdog is looking into the case of a 12 year old sexual abuse victim arrested for being drunk. ' 
 Oh what confidence that gives us, what complete assurance that the truth will out, what certainty, that rogue, incompetent or abusive police officers will be prosecuted. 
Dream on!

WAR - THAT'S SMALL FRY

OBAMA AND THE RICH WORLD DECLARE WAR ON THE POOR....AGAIN

 It is time to be candid. The rich intend to subjugate the poor or obliterate them. The powerful wealthy will take whatever measures are necessary, even nuclear or chemical ones, to rid themselves of any ultimate threat. 
Behind the measured democratic announcements lies that selfish gene that acts unequivocally to guard its best. 
The Pope will stay safe indulged in Vatican glory and Welby at Lambeth. Obama will banquet and ball among America's finest and Europe will continue to indulge its rapacious appetites. 
Pudsey and the endless mawkish charity fund raising will continue to provide us with the semblance of compassion, and even the United Nations will provide ventriloquists to mouth dissembling platitudes, but when the Ebola victims press on our borders, or the refugees pile up on our coasts or the militants rise up in their rage, we only have one secret answer, one unmentionable strategy, one unbridled intention. 
We will eviscerate them. 
We think our way of life is inviolable and we will exterminate every threat.
If only, for once in the world's history, we could try another way............

SO WEALTH IN THE END KILLED JOAN RIVERS

A telling revelation, as with Michael Jackson's demise, that money, private doctors and private clinics, are not always a bonus, rather they can be the route to an early death.

THE EVIL LURKING BEHIND CHILDREN'S SERVICES

It becomes crystal clear that structures like the police and social workers can never deliver social justice and protection to the vulnerable alone. Bullies, abusers, deceivers and the corrupt can scheme their way into every corner of life and none so damaging as when they can conceal their evil behind a uniform, a title or a public position such as 'Director of Children's Services' or 'Police and Crime Commissioner'.

Outstanding, controversial and inspirational.


5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, controversial and inspirational. 29 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jonathan's first book, For God's Sake, Don't go to Church was written with a vision, this book draws on that vision in action. I received my copy via Kindle as it was released and have devoted today to reading it. Don't expect an easy ride- it challenges to our very core, and it would be easy in the early chapters to give up on it finding Jonathan's reflections to be TOO much to bear. However, all that is needed is an open mind and Jonathan concludes his damning thesis on religion with a challenge to experience re birth. Far from dismanteling my own belief system, Jonathan has enriched it through this book. It is both one of the most controversial but also the most inspirational works of the 21st century, a timely and urgent message for all. It is a must read for all.
