RFID: Sign of the (End) Times?


~CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts -- Katherine Albrecht is on a mission from God.

The influential consumer advocate has written a new book warning her fellow Christians that radio frequency identification may evolve to become the "mark of the beast" -- meaning the technology is a sign that the end-times are drawing near.

~Yet did not they themselves lay the foundation for this through their support of the Bushanista Agenda?

to keep an eye on what they are doing. and the latest is this: They are attempting to raise money to force the amendment through: Some, WHPS Tony (I'm from Fox) Snow actually attempted to equate the Amendment with the fight over the passage of the Civil Rights Amendment...
From the Transcript:

Q: You mentioned civil rights. Are you comparing this to various civil rights measures which have come to the Congress over the years?

MR. SNOW: Not -- well, these -- it --

Q: Is this a civil right?

MR. SNOW: Marriage? It actually -- what we're really talking about here is an attempt to try to maintain the traditional meaning of an institution that has maintained one meeting for -- meaning for a period of centuries. And furthermore --

Q: And you would equate that with civil rights?

MR. SNOW: No, I'm just saying that I think -- well, I don't know. How do you define civil rights?

My First Dominionist Find

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

Gee, I feel so proud. I was Googling the Bible college that the pastors of the church I grew up in all graduated from, called Rhema. Kenneth Hagin is the pastor of the church there and I believe he runs the college, but I'm not sure. Anyway, I found a website for another church, also called Rhema, but this one is in Canada, and I read about what they refer to as the "Next Dimension of God." Here's a sampling:
"A Dimension of Global Authority for the body of Christ has been released. The rule of the heavens will be manifested within the earth. The church will return to her placement as the locus of global government and the nations shall flow up to this mountain of God for instructions in the light (Deuteronomy 28:13 Psalm 72:8; Isaiah 2:2-3)."
http://www.rhemaonline.ca/articles.asp (Sorry, I'm not at home and can't do cute cut tags and stuff without my LJ Client. LOL)

I'm at once filled with uneasiness about their plans, and giddiness that I get to post something I found. And also confusion because I always equated Canadians with much more sanity than those of us south of the border.

Godless Heathens

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

...Because, you know, those heathens certainly weren't polytheists or anything. I think their Neo-Pagan counterparts, most of whom I assume to be more liberal politically, will be surprised to learn that they actually belong to the Church of Godlessness. As a theist of sorts (if panentheism can be said to be a kind of theism) I'm pretty surprised myself. I'm sure liberal Jews, Christians and Muslims must be the most surprised.

Ann Coulter explains it all in her new book Godless: The Church of Liberalism, which hits the shelves today (In case you've been in a cave with no calendar, today's date is 06/06/06). It's a good thing she wrote this, because I was under the impression that we liberals are quite religiously diverse. Evidently, "Liberals love to boast that they are not ‘religious.’" OK, now I'm confused, because I know plently of liberals that claim to be religious. It must have all been a rouse to trick People Of Faith into voting for them. Those dastardly liberals!

Oh, wait, now I remember. Ann Coulter is full of it. And full of herself, too, if one is to judge books by their covers. Of Coulter's five novels (because they're certainly not non-fiction), four of them have her picture right there on the front. But I shouldn't argue ad homenim; that's be stooping to her level.

I don't even know why I'm surprised. Conservativism has been trying for years to claim religion as it's own, so conflating liberalism with atheism shouldn't shock me. Unfortunately Coulter's false them-versus-us dichotomy is sure to appeal to conservatives. They can't understand and accept diversity among people in general, why expect them to recognize the vast religious and non-religious diversity among liberals?

All the more reason for us to fight the good fight, I suppose. I, as a religious liberal, intend to keep raising hell (so to speak) until our existance is recognized. Even conservatives can't ignore the truth when it's looking them in the eyes. They do try so hard to ignore it, though, don't they?
