More Detail about Pastor Jones 

 

"Broadcasting live on a Coptic satellite channel, available throughout the Middle East, Jones and his followers put the Koran on mock trial, and eventually convicted it on murder, rape, and terrorism charges. Visitors to the church website got to vote for the appropriate penalty and overwhelmingly chose incineration. The Arabic channel broke off its live stream for the incendiary portion of the proceedings, but Jones made sure the scene was available on his website. Assistant pastor Wayne Sapp doused the book in gasoline and set it on fire with a stove lighter."

Me, too. Switched over to Credo years ago, enticed by their offer of a pint of Ben & Jerry's each month for a year.

I'm on Credo too, with my son. I thought 'd never met another Credo user :-)
Comment by Neal on April 2, 2011 at 10:36am
credo is my provider now, have taken care of this. The whole voucher thing is just a plot to get rid of secular schools.

For those of you in America: please sign this!

 

As John Boehner leads Republicans in slashing funding for the Clean Air Act, Planned Parenthood, public broadcasting and other vital programs, only one bill is so important to the Speaker that he attached his own name to it and pushed it through the House.

Speaker Boehner's pet project? More than $300 million spent on just 1,700 private school students enrolled in the District of Columbia's decaying voucher program.

While our legislators are engaged in debates on fixing our economy and getting Americans back to work, it's outrageous that Speaker Boehner's top priority is subsidizing a handful of private schools in Washington, D.C. -- wasting critical dollars that could go towards our public schools. And because most of the private schools that would benefit are religious, this is also a clear back door attempt to publicly finance faith-based education.

I just signed a petition calling on Senate Democrats to block Boehner's incredibly expensive pet project. You should do the same. Click below to take action.

We know that every thing we do now is tracked. When W was still in office, and the phone companies were giving up data, I made a point of saying f you bush and f u verizon at the end of every call.

 

Unless you get rid of all electronic devices, you're on their radar.

Comment by Adriana on April 2, 2011 at 9:43am
That is a bit creepy, doone, I'd better not show it to my husband, he thinks these are unacceptable intrusion into our lives and no company should keep track of that kind f information.
Comment by Doone on April 2, 2011 at 9:31am

Speaking of control or information about you now and in the future

Your Cellphone Is Tracking You

Tell-all-telephone-575x383

Sean Carroll reminds us of how much:

In Germany they are currently debating rules on what data companies can keep and analyze, vs. what they must throw away. To make a point, Green Party politician Malte Spitz went to court to force Deutsche Telekom to share the data they had collected about him, just from his mobile phone. What is revealed, basically, is where he was essentially at every moment of the day. Spitz handed the information over to Zeit Online, who combined it with information he revealed himself via Twitter and his blog, to make a scarily detailed chronological map of his daily activities. ...

People can decide for themselves whether this is intrusive or benign; more than a few people put nearly as much information online anyway, without thinking twice. But you should know that it’s out there.

I'm not as optimistic as you are, Adriana, not in the short run, at least.  You're right, of course; education and a rising standard of living for everyone in a given culture always yields a greater good in almost every way for humanity everywhere.  It seems so simple and obvious that poverty, desperation, and ignorance are, in general, what makes a population vulnerable to the manipulation of greedy, malicious leaders.  When those leaders control even the system of education, as they do in too much of the Islamic world, even that wholesome human enterprise is corrupted to bad ends.
