POPE FRANCIS will consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary tomorrow, October 13. A statue of Our Lady of Fatima, normally kept at the Chapel of Apparitions in Fatima, Portugal, is en route to Rome for the ceremony, which takes place on the 96th anniversary of the so-called Miracle of the Sun.
THE MEDIA is calling the group rounded up in Michigan over the weekend a Christian militia. A few minutes on the website of the Hutaree is enough to show that this group represents Christ no more than Britney Spears represents the Mickey Mouse Club.
Still, that’s the meme we’ve heard for the last couple of years: angry white (Christian) men are a threat to the republic because they can’t deal with people who are different.
Sadly, some of us fall for that bait and really do get angry; others turn away from Christ’s prime directive to preach the gospel and make disciples, and instead try to make politics their ministry. Either way, we’ve been diverted from our true mission which is exactly what the powers and principalities want.
Also: Egypt, Babel, and Eridu; the numbers of the health care bill; terror in Moscow; Israel training for…something; more theopolitical rallies with evangelicals and New Apostles; and the World Wildlife Fund hopes to find billions growing on trees.
Mark your calendar: Derek is honored to serve as “servant of ceremonies” for The Last Days Conference April 23rd & 24th in Antioch (Nashville), Tennessee. Speakers include:
Dr. Williams, an American citizen, has been sued by McMaster University in Canada over his book The Dunces of Doomsday, in which he revealed potential terrorist threats from al-Qaeda affiliates at McMaster. The university is suing Williams for libel, demanding $4 million in damages.
Unlike American libel laws, where the plaintiff must prove that what said about him is not true and it was said in malice, in Canada the burden of proof is on the defendant.
In the second half of the show, we talk with Jacob Segerman, the producer of the Waking Jonah podcast. Waking Jonah presents clips from other podcasts, such as Future Quake, Shatter the Darkness, Prewrath Radio Online, Alex Jones, and P.I.D. Radio.
The clips focus on one idea and usually last 3 minutes and 3 seconds or less (symbolizing the 3 days and 3 nights Jonah was in the belly of the fish). It’s an excellent tool for introducing friends and family to what’s really happening in the world today in manageable, bite-size chunks.
