TRUMPS RELIGIOUS COUNCIL

Next


ONE-SIDED RELIGIOUS COUNCIL
How do you have any religious councils at all without input from other religions.  Is Trumps world only for Bablical Christians, where are the Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, Animism, Ba’Hai’, Goths, Snake Charmers (Baptists) Presbyterians, Methodists and the other 4784 registered Churches and faiths in the mix...  

George Bush 43 because of his new found “re-bornation”  (new word) banned stem cell testing in the US for eight years.  Thats when religion moves against science. My wife died during the time, he obstructed the research which might have helped her.   Which because of the Japanese and French doing the work we should have stayed the course, they helped us opening the stem-cell transplants science making some great incredible beyond immagination.inroads today. 

It’s nothing but another sham by TRUMP to make it appear he has concerns that he above all is a devout man and a believer. If anything he is devoutly addicted to misogamy and groping, and all this is to impress the GOP evangelicals who believe in him.  

Trump... “ Inclusive” NO,  divisive, nothing but a real Anti-Christ character loudly proclaiming he’s a Christian by what he tells you, those are all lies, his actions ( all 4200 documented) inflammatory, hateful, prejudicial, and masoginist cannot be denied by the true believer.

I am Jewish, born, Bar-Mitzvahed and will leave the earth that way.  I was taught to observe, even participate with those of other religions, being a photographer for over 60 years, thru diverse and unique weddings, political and civil occasions I covered. 

I grew up in Brooklyn NY, a mecca for almost any race or creed, heritage, country of origin, religious belief and non-believers.  Living, coexisting, shooting hoops, stickball, playing hooky and sharing with my brothers of all colors and faiths,  One of those sayings I picked up when I was doing a church function, the guest speaker spoke of “ paths and signs”.  That was a new one onto me.

“Path’s” was simple, the direction you are in, guidance by rules and regulations, and a little common sense.  Signs were the corrections to keep you on the paths.  And then it gave me a segway into “False Profits and Prophets”.  A prophet is one who delivers his interpretation of God’s word.  A profit is excess money raised by a cause for ones benefit.  Many profit by pretending to be a prophet and guiding people in the wrong direction.


HISTORY HAS SOME GREAT LESSONS

The LAO people (The Secret War)  did not have a written language, history and stories were carried down through the centuries by elders, and in my research for the Article - The Secret War,  I found sayings out of many that rang a bell, spoken almost 3000 years ago from Lao Tzu and Chinese history.  My comments are in black next to each one.

We learn the importance of history, things that happen tend to repeat themselves.  In this era of turmoil, and chaos caused by one individual assisted by followers of dubious cranial capacity, the fears are real.  A farmer once told me it’s not the rat he killed in the grain silo he fears,  the obvious indicates where there was one, there are more rats, not just one.

In government, as with many things we have those who are leaders and those who are followers, but truth is a better option. The answer is get rid of them all. We have to start with new people of honor and integrity.  We have lost that advantage in the world and the world is beginning to realize that.

A single rotten fish makes a basketful turn bad ...
One bad apple in the WhiteHouse can bring down a country and more.  The office of the President, the leader of the free world, and one who has the keys to nuclear world destruction is stinking up the world order.   Our lives, our security, our children’s and even our countries future are in jeopardy by this man.

When the buffaloes fight it is the grass that suffers ...
Partisanship will destroy a government, it is the people who suffer. Once in a while, We get lucky they get caught, maybe break a leg or are wounded and are removed.  But real removal takes place in the voting booth, don’t vote, don’t bitch.

A person’s stripes are inside; those of a tiger are outside ...
Lies, deceit, falsehoods, diversion, chaos are the tools the gamers use, Sooner or later actions are indicative of a persons real character and the truth surfaces.  And the penalties should be severe and well displayed as a deterrent to others.

A tray full of money is not worth a mind full of knowledge ...  
Because you are rich does not make you better nor wiser,  just look at who (or what in some cases) was on Trumps Swamp team,  appropriately called “ The CessPool”.  His cabinet stooges and crooks failed miserably, the cost of failure and protection of the environment will take millions of dollar and years to repair and realistically hurt the common folk.

One has to cross upstream, higher up, to come downstream properly ...  
You must think and be above the false prophets, challenge them, and stand up for right and consequence for those who take advantage.  When it does I only hope that fair retribution, not revenge will be the Order of the Day,  keeping those in line, with comfort and help,  and discarding those who took advantage of others.  
Except for heinous crime... whereas the Hammurabi Code would work.  
Hammurabi’s Code:  An Eye for an Eye. ( some add a tooth for a tooth ) “ Hammurabi, the king of righteousness, on whom Shamash has conferred the law, am I.”  said ”An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.”

When the water level falls, the ants eat the fish; when the water level rises, the fish eats the ants ... 
The Midterm elections, soon upon us will be a day of reconcilement, those will be the beginning of the end of a false doctrine.

Ten mouths speaking are not as good as seeing with one’s own eyes
Ten eyes that see are not as good,  as what one has in one’s hand ...

Hats, T-shirts, slogans and signs mean little as when the truth comes out,  What touches you in reality is what counts thus the truth and how it affect you and others is what really matters. When your medical bills go up and the 1000 dollar tax relief becomes worthless, you’ll know why the last sentence was important

WHATS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
An Orthodox Jew is placed in a government-subsidized job program that meets in a church. His religious beliefs bar him from entering a church. Will reasonable efforts be made to refer him to an alternate provider?

A Catholic victim of human trafficking is cared for by a federally funded evangelical nonprofit. The nonprofit also organizes Bible study groups and invites her to attend. She’s afraid if she refuses to attend a Bible study, she could lose her government benefits.  Will she be told that she doesn’t need to participate in the Bible study to receive federally funded services?

A woman in a government-backed pregnancy prevention program is bothered by the fact that the program leader proselytizes. Will she learn that providers must not proselytize within a government grant program and will she know how to report any violations of these rules?

THE GOOD GUY
On the recommendation of religious and community leaders from across the political spectrum, the Obama administration’s answer to these questions was a clear: “Yes.” I saw that firsthand as executive director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, the arm of the White House that focused on the government’s partnerships with faith-based and community groups.

THE DESTROYER (HELL’s HALF  ANGEL)
President Trump changed that earlier this month when he signed an executive order striking religious liberty protections for Americans who get government-subsidized social services. While Trump said he took these actions in the name of religious liberty, he actually dealt religious freedom a blow with his new White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative. He also damaged efforts to find common ground on church-state issues and undermined support for the many partnerships the government has with faith-based entities.

Within weeks of taking office, Obama signed an executive order opening the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and creating an advisory council.  He named leaders to the council who were diverse in many ways, including in their politics, ideology and theology.

Smaller working groups within the council captured even more diversity. The working group charged with examining church-state issues included a former staff member of Bush’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives and the head of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, as well as leaders falling somewhere in between, including me.

The council could not agree on some important church-state issues, but members did agree that more could and should be done to protect the religious liberty of people who get government-subsidized social services.

The council also recommended that beneficiaries receive a written notice to ensure they understood these protections.  In November 2010, Obama signed these recommendations into law via Executive Order 13559.

After a public notice and comment process, nine federal agencies issued final rules implementing this executive order, a process I coordinated when I served at the White House.

The incorporation of these provisions in federal regulations helped tamp down the controversy over partnerships between the government and faith-based organizations. To be sure, many progressives still opposed certain rules George W. Bush had put in place, but these new rules ameliorated their concerns, while also drawing the support of conservatives.

The order Trump signed in early May eliminates the alternative-provider requirements. Trump’s order also strikes the requirement that beneficiaries receive written notice of protections for their religious liberty.

The White House offered no explanation for its actions, but two justifications were described by others.

First, requiring religious providers to make reasonable efforts to identify alternative providers and offer referrals simply is not a good use of these providers’ time, suggested a leader of Agudath Israel of America, an Orthodox Jewish group quoted in a recent JTA report. If any referrals are warranted, governmental bodies should do it.

Religious providers have long had to make referrals to alternative providers under a few federally funded programs, with no reported problems. Deciding to place this responsibility on government instead could prove to be a respectable choice, but striking these religious liberty protections is not.

The second justification offered for rescinding these protections was that some antiabortion religious providers fear that they would have to make referrals for prenatal services to providers that also offer abortions, Stanley Carlson-Thies, a political scientist who worked with the faith-based offices of Bush and Obama, told the Deseret News.

Available data suggests that referrals in general are rarely requested, and this specific kind of referral request seems even more unlikely.  In such a case, however, the religious provider could request and receive an accommodation under the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act, one that would honor the objection and find another way to make the referral.

What the federal government should not do, however, is remove protections for the religious liberties of countless Americans (in this case, social service beneficiaries) because of the slight possibility that a religious organization might one day have to successfully raise an objection to a referral.

Removing religious liberty protections in the name of religious freedom taints the cause. Honoring freedom for faith-based providers, while taking it away from people receiving services, is wrong. Breaking the long-standing pattern of respect for common-ground consultations is shortsighted. Undermining bipartisan support for effective partnerships that serve people in need is inexcusable. One way or another, those who value religious liberty and social service partnerships must fix these mistakes.
