Happy Birthday Goddess – Aphrodite/Venus

I am told that the earth goddess is hundreds of thousands of years old in human civilization but that the legend of Aphrodite, the Greek name, Venus, the Roman name, of the goddess of love, born off Cyrus, is close to ten thousand years old.

That her real birthday is supposed to be sometime in the month of September, the 8th or 26th, 7989 B.C.E.?

Happy ten thousandth plus or minus a few months and or centuries.  

The thing missing with all these johnny come lately monotheistic male only gods is a sense of the eternal feminine.  Aphrodite/Venus is perhaps due for a return as part of the human equation of the new global culture.


"Foam-arisen" Aphrodite was born of the sea foam near Paphos, Cyprus after Cronus severed Uranus' genitals and threw them behind him into the sea, while the Erinyes emerged from the drops of blood. Hesiod's Theogony described that the genitals "were carried over the sea a long time, and white foam arose from the immortal flesh; with it a girl grew" to become Aphrodite. Aphrodite floated in on a scallop shell. When she arose, she was hailed as "Cyprian," and is referred to as such often, especially in the poetic works of Sappho. This myth of a fully mature Venus (the Roman name for Aphrodite), Venus Anadyomene ("Venus Rising From the Sea") was one of the iconic representations of Aphrodite, made famous in a much-admired painting by Apelles, now lost, but described in the Natural History of Pliny the Elder…”

Infamous – Do Not Touch the Children!

Here’s a story that never made it to the Lame Stream American Media.  Found it on a  Jehovah Witness site.  Searched around a bit to find a more legitimate looking media source.  Could not believe that this story never made it to these shores.  Oh well, what else is new?

My article title is a translation from Italian of what no doubt angry parishioners wrote on the wall of the pedophile priest’s church. 

Priest Sex-Abuse Case Hits Church of Pope's Adviser 

(GENOA) — The latest sex-abuse case to rock the Catholic Church is unfolding in the archdiocese of an influential Italian Cardinal who has been working with Pope Benedict XVI on reforms to respond to prior scandals of pedophile priests.

Father Riccardo Seppia, a 51-year-old parish priest in the village of Sastri Ponente, near Genoa, was arrested last Friday, May 13, on pedophilia and drug charges. Investigators say that in tapped mobile-phone conversations, Seppia asked a Moroccan drug dealer to arrange sexual encounters with young and vulnerable boys. "I do not want 16-year-old boys but younger. Fourteen-year-olds are O.K. Look for needy boys who have family issues," he allegedly said.

Genoa Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco, who is the head of the Italian Bishops Conference, had been working with Benedict to establish a tough new worldwide policy, released this week, on how bishops should handle accusations of priestly sex abuse. 
Worldwide policy?  How about your own backyard folks?

And so it goes.  Sadly.

Islam is as American as Apple Pie!

A “Christian” who hates is not a Christian!

Separation of Church, Synagogue, Mosque, Temple and State forever!

God Bless the United States Constitution!

God Bless all the People of America - living here now!

Don't let the fundamentalist Haters over there or sadly here too, as well, divide us! 

Christian Terrorist Reaches Out to Cardinal Pell

From a dying church came words of comfort for a self proclaimed born again Christian Terrorist Anders Breivik of Norway.  Cardinal Pell is quoted in Breivik’s lunatic manifesto along with other Islamophobe Australian politicians. 

“In my own reading of the Koran, I began to note down invocations to violence. There are so many of them, however, that I abandoned this exercise after 50 or 60 or 70 pages.”  Archbishop George Pell, Sydney

There are literally dozens and dozens of blogs and news sites prior to last week’s human tragedy that quote Cardinal Pell’s anti-Islamic words as the basis of articles reinforcing the worldwide corporate political campaign feeding the growing Islamophobia of this dying western culture.

Pell, an arch conservative in the RC church, was until recently in line to be in charge of all the RC bishops worldwide to clean up corruption.  Whispers of Pell’s own brush with sex abuse charges from 1961 are discrediting him behind Vatican closed doors.  Pity?  He may not be guilty on that count.

It is a pity that his hate words against Islam are not the thing that would have kept him from getting the Vatican posting.

I am reminded of a line from the Priest’s Daily Office or Breviary that RC priests are supposed to read everyday under pain of mortal sin for not doing so.

Happy is the one who takes your babies and smashes them against the rocks!” Psalm 137:9

“Christian violence against any perceived enemy cannot be considered a sin or crime.” (Constantine the Great ?)

Every other paragraph in the bible regarding King David, a supposed ancestor of Jesus, is one long litany of “invocations to violence”. 

Perhaps Cardinal Pell is a hypocrite or is he your typical catholic and has not read his own user manual – the bible?

In any case, I think, George might be a very misunderstood and unappreciated cleric doing his duty to God and himself as he sees fits.

I hereby award George Pell, Archbishop of Sydney Australia, the first annual

Australian Sheep-Shagger Award (2011)

for services performed in the name of humanity and in spite of humanity’s sake for his words of encouragement to all the confused Breiviks of this world. 

You have done more than your share to return the global culture back to the stone age. 

Thanks – but really no thanks dude!

Have a nice day George and a well earned retirement to obscurity.

Love.  Peace.  Brotherhood. (and all that other Islamic jazz)
