     A 31 year old MARRIAGE of DECEIT & RUTHLESSNESS of HOMOPHOBIA and GREED *** It is no secret by now that the IGNORANCE of the issue of GAY MARRIAGE has in the past been used in the USA as a POLITICAL WEDGE to usher certain people into public office that led to many adverse effects impacting the safety and well-being of millions lives including children, which later led us into a war under false pretenses. Beginning in 1981 when Benedict XVI, as Cardinal Ratzinger took the office in the Vatican as grand inquisitor, he immediately began …silencing Catholic SOCIAL JUSTICE, moral theologians, academics, priests and sisters particularly those dealing with the sexual orientation (like the Vatican recent sanctioning of the USA Catholic Sisters for advocating SOCIAL JUSTICE over attacking the issue of gay marriage, i.e. Sr. Margret Farley) *** we have faced in the USA: (A) the RECESSION of the 1980’s that followed a significant political shift to the right, (B) in the 1990’s the major DOWNSIZING of corporations/businesses meaning employees lost their jobs, at the same time there was the OUTSOURCING of USA jobs exploiting workers overseas, along with the tremendous rise in health care cost and the number of uninsured, (C) in the 2000’s came the taxes cuts for the super rich, LED US INTO WAR UNDER FALSE PRETENCES, the deterioration of the USA infrastructure due to years of budgetary cut backs including the staffing and updating of Federal rescue agencies, which led to the massive devastation and tremendous loss of life caused by KATRINA 2005 by the collapsing of the weak levees and the unconscionable lengthy delay and serious lack of competency of the Federal rescue agencies to aid and save lives. *** Now Benedict XVI hires the FOX NEWS NETWORK PR - in an USA Presidential Election Year to improve his image and credibility deteriorated by years and years of his global child sexual abuse cover-ups – for what reason – in hopes to win back the majority of Catholics in the USA who now support GAY MARRIAGE – to use it again as a POLITICAL WEDGE to usher even more destructive & powerful people into office – what to start more wars under false pretenses? 7/04/12
















































     Amistad Africans – Supreme Court Trial 1841 - President John Quincy Adam - “The truth, in truth, has been driven from this case like a SLAVE, flogged from court to court, wretched and destitute…a ‘keen mind of the SOUTH,’ … asserts that: ‘There has never existed a civilized society in which one segment did not thrive upon the labor of another. As far back as one chooses to look – to ancient times, to BIBLICAL times – history bears this out. In Eden, where only two were created, even there, one was pronounced subordinate to the other. SLAVERY has always been with us and is neither sinful nor immoral… SLAVERY, as NATURAL as it is inevitable.’ ’ …I must say I DIFFER with the keen minds of the SOUTH…offering that the NATURAL STATE OF MANKIND is, instead – and I know this is a controversial idea – IS FREEDOM, is freedom. And the proof is the length to which a man, woman, or child will go to regain it, once taken. He will break loose his chains. He will decimate his enemies. He will try and try and try AGAINST ALL ODDS, against all prejudices, to get home…Yet, if the SOUTH is right, what are we to do with that embarrassing, annoying document, The DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE? What of its conceits? ‘ALL MEN…CREATED EQUAL,’ ‘INALIENABLE RIGHTS,’ ‘LIFE,’ ‘LIBERTY,’ and so on and so forth? …We desperately need your strength and wisdom to triumph over our fears, our prejudices, ourselves. Give us the courage to do what is right. And if it means civil war, then let it come. And when it does, may it be, finally, the last battle of the American Revolution. [Patrick Henry, American Revolution “GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH”] - AMISTAD - 1997 movie, Spielberg
