The "Pulsa Dinoura or, the "Kabbalistic Death Curse"

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]cheap_laugh)

Jewish Fundies re no better than Khristian one. Or Islamic ones.... And the genus Kahane Chai are perhaps the worst. These "righteous men" have invoked a death sentence that is reserved for the Angels: "Pulsa Dinoura" or Lash of Fire...

The Pulsa is God's Capital Sentence against Angels - so, was there really a Fall?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulsa_diNura has tihs quote from my Rav:

The Pulsa D’Nora has wrongfully been associated with a certain school of Kabbalah known as Kabbalah Ma'asit (magic). The Pulsa D'Nora is not a magical formula. Torah and Judaism have no connection to or tolerance of magic in any form. Therefore, the consideration of anything in holy Kabbalah, an integral part of [God's] Torah from Sinai to have any ties to magic is a spurious and offensive suggestion. The Pulsa D'Nora is actually not a "curse of death" as many mistakenly believe. No Rabbi or Kabbalist has the right or authority to curse another to death. In accordance to Torah Law, the only way a Jew is put to death is for violation of specific Biblical laws and then only after being tried and condemned by a kosher and authoritative Sanhedrin, the likes of which have not existed in Israel and among the Jewish people since the days of the Temple.
- Ha Rav Ariel bar Tzadok ( who by the way was also a student of Rav Berg of what is now the Kabbalah Cneter when it was originally know as the Yeshiva (School)

ACLU jihad

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]exotic_princess)

If this is too off topic, let me know and I'll delete!

I know O'Reilly gets old, but c'mon...

"At this point, anyone who thinks the ACLU is looking out for the folks, sticking up for your rights, is absolutely hopeless. The American Civil Liberties Union has become the attack dog in the secular progressive jihad to change the culture and political landscape in America."

Yeah, that's it.

Anointing Senators seats in the name of 'Higher Law'


This Talk to Action article talks about some Dominionist folks doing a bit of pre-hearing religious cheating:

A group of three ministers who have a history of advocating that the Ten Commandments should trump the U.S. Constitution have told the Wall Street Journal that they entered an unlocked Senate hearing room in order to anoint with oil the chairs that will be used for the confirmation hearing next week of Supreme Court nominee Judge Samuel Alito.

"We did adequately apply oil to all the seats," said the Rev. Rob Schenck, who identified himself as an evangelical Christian and as president of the National Clergy Council in Washington. He was accompanied by Rev. Pat Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, and Grace Nwachukwu, general manager of a group called Faith and Action, of which Rev. Schenck is president and co-founder. Rev. Schenck, Rev. Mahoney, and Rev. Nwachukwu spearhead the National Ten Commandments Project, launched in 1996, and claim to have distributed more than 400 plaques of various sizes that can be seen in offices throughout the Capital.

Rev. Schenck was trained at the Elim Bible Institute in Lima, NY. Along with fellow Elim alum Randall Terry, Schenck helped found the underground Operation Rescue, which has invoked "higher law" to justify not only peaceful civil disobedience, but also bloody revolution with "real bullets" and "real blood." Schenck later founded the National Community Church, a charismatic Pentecostal congregation in Washington, D.C., whose members included the then-junior Senator from Missouri (and future U.S. Attorney General) John Ashcroft, along with Ashcroft's family and several congressional staffers.

Nice. Anyone for a counter-prayer to neutralize the noxious nonsense?

I thought I'd share the letter I sent to Pat Robertson. On his website he has an "Ask Pat." page. These are questions that if selected are read on his show and he answers them. Mine was:

You suggested that Ariel's Sharon's stroke was a result of god's displeasure at his giving up holy land. You supported the claim by citing the assassination of Yitzak Rabin. If as you are assuming that death and disease in this world are the results of God's wrath what crimes do you feel that St. Peter and St. Paul committed that god was punishing them for? They must have been far worse as they suffered worse torment

I have a feeling he is not going to read this on the air.

Did Jesus exist? Italian court to decide


ROME (Reuters) - Forget the U.S. debate over intelligent design versus evolution.

An Italian court is tackling Jesus -- and whether the Roman Catholic Church may be breaking the law by teaching that he existed 2,000 years ago. Maybe we should try this here? )

Ministers from Philadelphia, New York and Washington today criticized plans by religious conservatives to hold a nationally broadcast rally Sunday at an African American church on North Broad Street on the eve of confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Samuel A. Alito.

The Rev. Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State in Washington and a United Church of Christ minister, called the gathering nothing more "a big play" by its conveners "to gain control over the one branch of government they don't now control."

The White House sharply criticized Christian broadcaster and former Republican presidential candidate Pat Robertson on Friday for suggesting that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s stroke was divine punishment for “dividing God’s land.”

“Those comments are wholly inappropriate and offensive and really don’t have a place in this or any other debate,” presidential spokesman Trent Duffy said as President Bush traveled to Chicago for a speech.
