Over the Christmas period, in Indonesia, millions of Moslems will be protecting both Christians and churches... Other heartening news potentially pales. This is a headline, albeit not possible to substantiate. I suppose, however true, there's tension in the encouragement of publicising this happening, and potentially increasing persecution, Muslim on Muslim.
Sometimes it feels like I don't belong here /It's been a long year /Hands are made for working and we gettin' dirty /I've been noticing the traps, cause they set em' early /It's an uphill struggle and I was never worthy /I don't know why God trusted me with this life /It's like my imperfections they've been disguised /Devil on my shoulder an-he's hoping that my gift dies /We've been praying for angels over this side /I feel for this generation and I pray for wisdom /God, we've been battling failures and addictions /Racism, kids rotting in prison /Trapped in a system, it's like we've lost vision /I ain't got the answers /Feels like I'll cop-out when I say I pray about /Cause times are getting harder but I feel a sense of comfort when I'm talking to the Father /Or when I'm out of words, I don't complain /I'd rather say this
Do this 'till I 'ffect change /That's why I picked a pen and pad in the first place /Helps me on my worst days /And I've learnt that people relate to pain /Guess everyone wants to know that they not alone in the rain /And I get that /We're all praying for a jetpack /So that we can step back and fly over the setbacks /I'm on my Sam Cooke /It's been a long time coming but a change is gonna come and I rep that /But it's tough when I look into my mother's eyes /To summarize, she ain't been the same since her husband died /Truth is, neither have I /All my brother like, "Soon enough, see him on the other side." /Till then we gotta look at the positives /There's power in the one that we're following /I guess that's enough /And mum, of course, I'll give you my love /But it's nothing like the love from above /So mum say this
“Do Not Discriminate” Against the Unvaccinated, Japanese Government Tells Citizens Website of the Japanese Prime Minister: "Vaccines will never be administered without the recipient’s consent. We urge the public never to coerce vaccinations at the workplace or upon others around them, and never to treat those who have not received the vaccine in a discriminatory manner."
Get in the groove, and spell out m'burden and the 'half that never(?), gets told' about God's lovers, their Ch. building/s (or not), and remaining undisclosed; the vid. makers and a survey of their talk about Jesus.
Have to cite one abysmal position. Do compassion toward the writer etc. What a hang-over and crisis when the bells ring and the Scam-a-delic is out and in their upturned lives.
Please note, my line is find the good, (if can), within their respective output. When the Traditional (Evangelical) detractors, fire at these Progressive (Evangelicals), with cries about compromise and heresy...?
Get no relief or joy, there?
Not, over and above (an)other wing/s of the Christian Ch. Yes, o'course includes what-have-you, and the named denomination/s.
A-list stars, such as; Dave Chappelle, Justin Welby... famous faces, allowed prominence on Netflix, -or- employed to run the Anglican Church: Know what battles to fight/ and lose?
Dave came out on his 2021 amped-up crescendos of expectations with The Closer to disclose he took 'the jab'.
A sense of responsibility? Gazing on, are a wide and diverse (on jabs), and colleagues, friends and fans.
Two years after the kick-off and the C-19 Declaration of War on Humanity, everywhere, everywhere..., everyone..., not paid-to-play the court jester, —kept a lid on.
Say nothing, Know...
Dave managed to undermine his confession by mocking the sense in it. Justin Welby waltzed out a bold C-19' rational clanger, in stating admitted, Non-Sense;
It’s about how I love my neighbour. Vaccination reduces my chances – doesn’t eliminate – but it reduces my chances of getting ill and reducing my chances of getting ill reduces my chances of infecting others. It’s very simple.
In 2020 it seemed the C of E were determined to stay in their corner and keep their lips covered and look grateful the church is kickin' in with Govt., for congregational compliance. Cries of "wimpy Welby" caused an exodus of disenfranchised and "done with the local church". Might have missed C of E leadership declaring their allegiance up to now but Justin trebled down and won/ kept, some, i.e. middle-class progressives. Into the climate and not much else it seems, while taking the jab is deemed sensible, respectful and 'intelligent' behaviour.
If a quarter left the church Welby leads in 2020, he lost similar numbers with his unambiguous message: God is 'in the Pharma world' bringing us the health we need? No matter the claim about 'sick with cold/flu symptoms', would see someone, less sick(?), having got jabbed. The risk and assessments are about... 'reducing my chances of getting ill reduces my chances of infecting others. It’s very simple'.
Imagine that, eh?
(Nope, all tinsel town, fairy stories. In what situation, could it be possible, to infect others?)
The question to holders of the Welby line?
What about it then? Not (the band), Television, tearing it up. An assertion, and how-not, unprovable?
Further goes the porky pies, and flat-out denial of Pharma Jab's own declaration. The scenario Justin sets up is based on a 'belief' in the Govt., in spite of internal contradictions, haemorrhaging onto a collapse of credability in one.
All the consideration and effort to posture the tone and careful use of language is for a couple or three goals:
One/ Plausible deniability for any future look-backs, (in anger(?)) and on record, the spell is on in the statement. Obscured by a slight of wording is designed to placate, and yet sound all-right Jack, despite The Crisis displayin' fortitude thanks to the 'vax'. Able to remain firm and chipper at Lambeth Palace. All thanks to, God(?).
Two/ Choose the side? (Chosen, for him, regardless of personal take and desired response). The danger was the look of indecisive, blathering to be on ...both sides?
Three/ The explanation and example of the concerns and reason to pump up the Vax machine, is a best-can own goal. Arguments with an intellectual foundation that stands up would be prone to deconstruction, and upturning. The Cult...
Rewind: 'reduces my chances of getting ill and reducing my chances of getting ill reduces my chances of infecting others'.
The claim, maintains the jab's protection, is in limiting symptoms/ illness, allowing the person to reduce, the CHANCE...
...'reduces my chances of infecting others.
Come on Justin? You'll never be able to discuss or develop the thinking? OR...? How about a man you reckon a proper, Christian. All our dear's and Dietrich The Bon./ The "Bomb".
Edward Curtin has a word for the Bish.:
When he was in prison in Germany after returning in 1939 from Union Theological Seminary in NYC to oppose Hitler, the German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote the following from his prison cell before he was executed:
Against stupidity we have no defense. Neither protests nor force can touch it. Reasoning is of no use. Facts that contradict personal prejudices can simply be disbelieved — indeed, the fool can counter by criticizing them, and if they are undeniable, they can just be pushed aside as trivial exceptions. So the fool, as distinct from the scoundrel, is completely self-satisfied. In fact, they can easily become dangerous, as it does not take much to make them aggressive. For that reason, greater caution is called for than with a malicious one. Never again will we try to persuade the stupid person with reasons, for it is senseless and dangerous.
By stupid he did not mean that such people lacked intellectual ability, for they were often very smart, but that they had fallen under the spell of public power and lost all independence of mind.
Thus he adds, “He is under a spell, blinded, misused, and abused in his very being. Having thus become a mindless tool, the stupid person will also be capable of any evil and at the same time incapable of seeing that it is evil.”
Room for Welby to wiggle an inch. of sense from the conundrum?
Keep on keepin' on the stare at the observer's into oblivion and Ri-Dick-Ulous. charades, mind-'magic', Dungeons 'n Dragons, and done over, and,
—voluntary reception to be under an info., missing, destructive spell-like vulnerability to sponge-up the deceptions and sense of accusation.
Seekers for reassuring TV voices of authority to shore up a cockamamy cover for existential insecurity. The fears, plus a first in a world-over, challenged to deal with social extinction.
No one switched on and a T for Truther is bobbin' about being hopeful on glib gumph and no-substance. Faking the ish., and no questions, coz nut to know. Discriminate against debate. The list of betrayal, and so it goes?
While sincere watchers of the ne'er ending, confirmed lying by career liars are the one's who find a degree of deliverance. (With, integrity?).
Say so, and into God/ and something akin to the Bible's version of the God-truth-claims?
Roots of the shoots is named and shamed as it manifests in (to)wards seeking to know God. Discerns as Red-Hot Rebellion. In context, with contemporary application. Links to (fail to do the right thing) and trapped by the Sin Of (Bad/ Tricky/ Dark/ Cold/ Crappy), 'Witchcraft'.
Not into over-sussing the A. Bishop. Or, get on for a low-level bash up. In all my grieving, ain't about the wider, come widest fam. assoc., with/ tagging the Ch. (Word-up, and gettin' personal?
Not, their thinking, or actions? Waste to wonder. What a waste.

Too blessed to ever stress I guess /Yeah, too blessed to ever stress I guess /My mother done more praying for me than she done for herself /And if she, kept the receipts, I would owe her the world /And I'm blessed /I see a power and a strength from my girl /Guess the apple wasn't far from the tree when it fell /And we plant seeds, hoping that the fruit has the beauty of the palm trees /Hoping that their drive ain't determined by car keys /Hoping that their sightsees beyond what they can't see /Hope they know that it's real when they feel what they can't reach /Counting my blessings, I'm reaching higher numbers /Turn my L's into lessons, that how I'm finding comfort /The Lord sees my halo cause he's in my circumference /Stop preenin' my jewelry and tryna fire judgement when
There is good reason why, in western societies, vaccination uptake is lowest among ethnic minorities. The clues are embedded in the three preceding paragraphs. Powerful nation-states, run by white elites for the benefit of white elites, have been trampling on the bodily autonomy of black and brown people for centuries – sometimes because those elites were indifferent to the harm they were causing, and sometimes because they professed to be helping these “inferior” peoples, such as in the “war on terror’s” promotion of neoliberal “democracy” as the grounds for invading countries whose oil we coveted.
The pretexts change but the bad faith is the same.
