A Formal Response to California’s Death With Dignity Act Legislation (tags)
Recently a major and moral decision was made to quell California legislature as to whether people suffering with terminal illness should have the right to die with dignity. Democrats did not have enough votes although the legislation might come back later in the year? To the extent that there was much of a debate in the news it has been one-sided with a chorus of status quo preventivists. Religion has once again slammed up common sense and compassion
Jesus' Nonviolence (tags)
Jesus' way is a third way, not the warrior cult or indifference but nonviolent resistance. Jesus himself is the auto-basileia and auto-aletheia of God, the fulfillment of the land promise to Israel. Jesus did not stop at words but drove out the moneychangers and traders.

Tim Mahoney,vFin,Venus,Florida Methodist Church,Sayed Mustafa and Islamic Usary (tags)
Mr.Mustafa seems to have a way of bending his own supposed religious rules.However in my humble opinion,by involvement in penny stock scams with his fellow right wing Christian or other business partners he is committing usary or worse.Perhaps Tim Mahoney or Leonard Sokolow at vFIN can explain to Sayed Mustafa how penny stock scheisters take a suckers money first and give worthless penny stock shares and then charge them steep interest on their own money as the worthless shares they were conned to purchase are dumped by insiders till all psychological value of the truly worthless shares is also lost.
