    Persecution by David Limbaugh, is quite interesting and is very apropo to our times. This book outlines in voluminous, researched detail the war taking place at this time in the educational, academic, political and judicial arenas against Christianity. This information is not reported by the national, liberal-learning media, of course, but it is taking place all across America. Anything Christian or pertaining to Christian beliefs is being attacked by the secularists, with the young members of society being their particular targets. If I had kids growing up right now, I would surely be an activist in this cause.

    Iran holding Christian pastor for $116,000 ransom...
    :mad:
    Wife: Jailed American Pastor Still Held in Iran
    WASHINGTON January 22, 2013 : Iran's semi-official news agency said Monday that a jailed American pastor of Iranian origin is to be released after posting $116,000 bond, but his wife in the U.S. claims Tehran has no intention of freeing him and that the announcement is "a game to silence" international media reports.

    Still. I know that must kill you but the facts remain the facts irregardless of how much they annoy you.

    Interesting fact about your avatar. It isn't too far off you know? The real you IS invisible! You are a trichotomy. Three beings in one. God said, Let US make man in OUR image. What image? The image of God the Father, Jesus His Son and His Spoken Word, His Holy Spirit is a picture of Spirit - Soul - Body ( physical ) God is a Spirit and so are you although your spirit is NOT the Holy Spirit. So as a spirit you are an eternal being.

    Which simply means you are going to live eternally some place. Where that is, is up to you but I will give you a hint. Mockers lose. Big time.

    Globally, the wealth of the Catholic Church is estimated to be in excess of $3,000 Billion. It is the highest land owner of Manhattan Island. It owns more gold than all of Europe combined.

    For over 14 centuries, the Vatican was the undisputed wealthest single economic entity in the world.

    The problem is that the Catholic Church hides its wealth behind tens of thousands of front companies, blind trusts, off shore accounts and other financial loopholes to both avoid tax and the revelation of its wealth.

    See:

    And that is just the Catholic church.


    Poor widdle persecuted christians.

    “Robertson lives on the top of a Virginia mountain, in a huge mansion with a private airstrip. He owns the Ice Capades [Pat Robertson's International Family Entertainment Inc bought Ice Capades In February 1995 from Dorothy Hamill for $10 million], a small hotel, diamond mines (in Zaire), a vitamin company (Kalo Vita) involved in a multi-level marketing scheme along the lines of Amway, and until recently, International Family Entertainment, parent company of the Family Channel … all estimated to be worth between $150-200 million”. How does a televangelist, who is supposedly involved in non-profit work, manage to create such a fortune for himself? One thing is known for sure, Robertson's numerous private business interests have at times pushed their expenses onto the tax-exempt, religious interests of CBN. For example, Robertson was caught using CBN money and equipment to aid his diamond mining operation -- a double good deal for Pat, seeing as he employed people in Zaire for ridiculously low wages, and managed to use CBN's infrastructure to cut costs even more. In looking at Robertson's businesses, one is struck by the constant use of non-profit, donor money to fund his schemes. (For documentation of this and more, see Rob Boston's book entitled The Most Dangerous Man in America?: Pat Robertson and the Rise of the Christian Coalition.)

    Let's be clear: What Limbaugh refers to as 'persecution" simply means "lack of special treatment and privileges." I really don't see how not allowing Christianity special rights and dominance over other religious beliefs is persecution.

    Limbaugh is quite clear that he does not want neutrality or equal treatment, he wants Christian dominance and special government support.
