'Everyone's a pagan now'

From morris dancers in mirror shades to green activists getting in touch with their spiritual side, paganism is going mainstream. Cole Moreton reports on a new national faith..

PAGAN Look out, here come the pagans. It's late May in central London and a man dressed as a tree, a witch in a velvet robe and a woman pretending to be a raven with a long black beak are dancing through the streets of Holborn, with several hundred others, moving to the rhythm of a dozen loud drums. They could wake the god of thunder with their noise but it's OK, the people at the back with the broadswords and shields are followers of Thor. This is a parade to celebrate pagan pride, and it would be wise not to get in the way.

"We are moving into a new time," says the leader, brandishing a huge set of antlers. "We are becoming more accepted. Paganism is reasserting itself."  MORE>>>>>>>>>>


Having a Form of Godliness

By Jim Josephsen

Mainstream Christians fit perfectly the Biblical portrayal of individuals living in the end time; having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. The New Living Translation renders this statement by the Apostle Paul as follows: “They will act as if they are religious but will reject the power that could make them godly.”

It is obvious Christians at large, embody this prophetic description; but none greater than American Christians.

A recent survey conducted by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life produced a most distressing finding. Seventy percent of Americans with a religious affiliation (the majority labeling themselves Christian) don’t feel their religion is the only way to eternal life. Although it is thought this finding promotes a positive view of an ever increasing “religious tolerance” within America (you know, increased political correctness), the sad reality is the Christian faith is becoming ever more transient, blending in practice, diminished in power, empty and vain.

The survey also noted, within mainline Protestantism, 83 percent believe more than one religion can provide the way to eternal life; of the members of Black Protestant churches 59 percent agree. Additionally, 79 percent of Catholics accept this concept. Interestingly, of those of the Jewish faith, 82 percent think theirs is not the only way to eternal life.

“Conservatives” Are Single-Largest Ideological Group

PRINCETON, NJ -- Thus far in 2009, 40% of Americans interviewed in national Gallup Poll surveys describe their political views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal. This represents a slight increase for conservatism in the U.S. since 2008, returning it to a level last seen in 2004. The 21% calling themselves liberal is in line with findings throughout this decade, but is up from the 1990s.

gcvrk6v1yky1kpfyiqjhvw

These annual figures are based on multiple national Gallup surveys conducted each year, in some cases encompassing more than 40,000 interviews. The 2009 data are based on 10 separate surveys conducted from January through May. Thus, the margins of error around each year's figures are quite small, and changes of only two percentage points are statistically significant.

To measure political ideology, Gallup asks Americans to say whether their political views are very conservative, conservative, moderate, liberal, or very liberal. As has been the case each year since 1992, very few Americans define themselves at the extremes of the political spectrum. Just 9% call themselves "very conservative" and 5% "very liberal." The vast majority of self-described liberals and conservatives identify with the unmodified form of their chosen label.  MORE>>>>>>>


Terror Names Linked To Doomed Flight AF 447

Forward by Bob Barney: Is there something fishy here? First the plane is lost over 10,000 feet of water, yet a week later they find the tail section. Does a tail section float? Now they have found whole bodies. Planes that CRASH don't leave intact bodies, those that break up in the air DO! Could it be that the world, and not just Obama and company, simply doesn't want to understand that we are in a war with Muslim terrorist? This plane may have had another problem that caused the crash, but the story given so far does not seem believable...

Two passengers with names linked to Islamic terrorism were on board the Air France flight which crashed with the loss of 228 lives, it has emerged.

While it is certain that there were computer malfunctions, terrorism has not been ruled out.

While nearly 400,000 concerned citizens demand President Obama present his elusive "long-form" birth certificate, more than a dozen other documents remain unreleased or otherwise blocked from the public eye.

Numerous documents which have yet to be surrendered include the following.

Obama kindergarten records

The Maui News reported that Obama attended kindergarten at Noelani Elementary School on Oahu during the school year 1966-67. It released a photo of two teachers, Katherine Nakamoto and Aimee Yatsushiro, with five students. The teachers claim one of the children is Barack Obama.

According to the Hawaii Department of Education, students must submit a birth certificate to register. Parents may bring a passport or student visa if the child is from a foreign country.

So far, no records have been released by the school. Noelani Elementary School officials have not responded to WND's request for comment.

Punahou School records

Though from a modest background, Obama began attending the prestigious Punahou School in Honolulu, one of Hawaii's top private institutions. He reportedly received a scholarship and attended the school from the fifth grade until he finished high school, though no financial records have been released.

The Boston Globe reported, "In 1979, the year Obama graduated, tuition for high school students at Punahou was $1,990, a sizable expense compared with Hawaii's median family income of $22,750 that year.

Obama, reportedly a "B" student, studied among the island's richest and most accomplished students. According to the school's website, he also played forward on Punahou's 1979 state championship basketball team.

Occidental College records

Obama arrived at Occidental College, a small liberal arts school in Los Angeles, Calif., in the fall of 1979. He only briefly mentions the school in his 1995 memoir, "Dreams from My Father."

Obama speech quoted jihad verse from Quran

Does this not bother you????

By Aaron Klein

JERUSALEM

– In his major address to the Muslim world last week, President Obama quoted a verse from the Quran that is interpreted as urging Muslims to follow Muhammad in waging jihad against nonbelievers.

The context of the verse – first noticed by Robert Spencer of the Jihad Watch website – was confirmed by Quranic experts contacted by WND.

"I have pointed to this section of the Quran as showing the importance of jihad and to follow the prophet (Muhammad) in jihad even though a war may be difficult," Abu Abaida Al-Ahmed, the imam of a central mosque in Gaza City, told WND.

Obama quoted the verse in question during a section of his speech where he was stressing a "new beginning" between the U.S. and the Muslim world, and the need for a "sustained effort to listen to each other."

Is Obama the Antichrist?

Forward by Bob Barney:

Beast The following essay DOES NOT reflect the views of The Plain Truth, but we believe in presenting various opinions for our readers.  There simply is not “An Antichrist,” the Bible says there are many Antichrists, not one. There will be a man of lawlessness, as Paul calls him, and most likely that person is one of the two end times persons mentioned in Revelation called the Beast and the false prophet which gives power to the beast. The Beast is the leader of the King of the North, whom we believe will come from Europe. The false prophet is a future pope, which will lead almost all Christianity astray by declaring that God’s Law (The Sabbath, and the rest of the Ten Commandments) have been “done away with.” That is why he is a man of lawlessness. Lawlessness means a person who is against the law! God’s Law… Or, the Ten Commandments!  Many things must occur before the end times leaders emerge. We may be close, I have no idea, or we may be years away. It will happen, because God says that it will. We are to keep our eyes open to the signs that Christ gave us to look for, found in Matthew 24. Read them and be prepared!

Cuddles With Moslems, Snubs Israel. Could Obama Really, Possibly, Be The AntiChrist?

And By Peace He Shall Destroy Many Daniel 9:27

Beast4 For the uninitiated, the Biblical Antichrist will be an individual spawned by Satan, who is the antithesis of Christ the Messiah, who came to establish an earthly kingdom which will not be fully realized until Jesus returns to earth. Even as His kingdom exists today in what is known as The Church (called-out ones), it will not be fully manifested until Christ's Return.

According to the Bible, the Apostle Paul describes the "Man Of Sin" Jesus counterpart - in 2 Thessalonians, as someone who shall be revealed, when a great falling away occurs in the Church. I dare say that in 2000 years of church history, we have never seen churches so plagued with sodomy, pedophilia, adultery, and heresy than today. Thessalonians tells us that this Antichrist will be accompanied with lying signs and wonders. Obama is not there, yet, unless you consider his mesmerizing over 50 million Democrats, academia, and the State Controlled Media. Also in 2 Thessalonians, "He (the Antichrist) opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remind you of anyone?

The Prophet Daniel mentions this Antichrist figure several times from the 7th through 12th chapter -and elsewhere - in his Book of Daniel. This entity will: "Speak against the Most High - Chapter 7; Set himself up to be as great as the Prince of the host, and he will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy the mighty men and the holy people. He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel at peace, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. - Chapter 8.  MORE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


How the Vatican sold its soul

Forward by Bob Barney:

The Roman Catholic Church asserts that the birth of the Catholic Church started with  Matthew Holy roman emper 16:18 when Christ purportedly selected Peter as the first Pope. However, when one looks closely into  the Scriptures and history, they will soon discover that the foundation of the church is none other than the pagan mystery religion of ancient Babylon.  The early Christians were viciously persecuted by the Roman government, so most of these Christians went through a slow but sure departure from New Testament doctrine concerning church government, worship and practice as ordered by Christ and the first Apostles.   Local churches stopped being independent as they gave a way their control to those of "bishops" ruling over hierarchies. The simple form of worship from the heart was replaced with the rituals and splendor of paganism. Ministers became "priests," and pagans became "Christians" by simply being sprinkled with water. This tolerance of an unregenerate membership only made things worse. SPRINKLED PAGANISM is about the best definition for Roman Catholicism. SEE THE TWO BABYLON’S for the best history you will ever read about the Catholic Church…..

A new book by the journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi lays bare a history of political bribes being paid through the Vatican's central bank

The Vatican appears to have an enduring vocation for Italian political and financial scandal. Secrecy and intrigue were the order of the day when American archbishop Paul Marcinkus held sway in the Bastion of Nicholas V, the medieval tower housing the Institute for the Works of Religion (IOR), the Vatican's central bank.  MORE>>>>>>>>>>>>
