A SHORT SERMON FOR TODAY

God is not limited to one system of beliefs; God’s Word is not limited to one form of communication.  God is beyond anything we humans can imagine, classify, or manipulate.  In attempting to limit God, we only limit ourselves.

 

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.  Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Matthew 6:24

 

Om Asato Maa Sadgamaya

Tamaso Maa Jyotir Gamaya

Mrityor Maa Amrtam Gamaya.

Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih.

(Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, 1st Adhyaya, 3rd Brahmana, 28th Mantra)

O Lord please lead me from the unreal to the real.

Lead me from darkness to light (i.e. from ignorance to knowledge).

Lead me from death to immortality.

May there be peace, peace and perfect peace.

 

Because God’s Word is not limited to one form of communication, it can be found in the scriptures of different religions—including Christianity and Hinduism.

God leads us from the unreal to the real.

God leads us from darkness to light.

God leads us from death to immortality.

But mammon leads us from the real to the unreal.

Mammon leads us from light to darkness.

And mammon leads us from immortality to death.

When we serve God, we are lead from the unreal to the real.

When we serve God, we are lead from darkness to light.

When we serve God, we are lead from death to immortality.

But when we serve mammon, we are lead from the real to the unreal.

When we serve mammon, we are lead from light to darkness.

And when we serve mammon, we are lead from immortality to death.

May we serve God.

May we not serve mammon.

And, yes, may there be peace, peace, and perfect peace.

NOT JUST “SCREAMING AT CARS”

History is biased because history is written by the victors—not the vanquished.

Most Americans do not know this though.

Though most Americans on the political right probably know that the history of the United States, in regards to the Confederate States, is filled with lies because the United States has been the victor since 1865, most Americans on the political right certainly do not know that the history of Israel, in regards to Palestine, is filled with lies because Israel has been the victor since 1948.

Though most Americans on the political left probably know that the history of Israel, in regards to Palestine, is filled with lies because Israel has been the victor since 1948, most Americans on the political left certainly do not know that the history of the United States, in regards to the Confederate States, is filled with lies because the United States has been the victor since 1865.

I know that history is biased because history is written by the victors—not the vanquished.

I know that the history of Israel, in regards to Palestine, is filled with lies because Israel has been the victor since 1948.

It is my personal responsibility to share this knowledge with my fellow Americans on the political right—to the best of my ability.

I know that history is biased because history is written by the victors—not the vanquished.

150 years ago, the Republican Party was punishing the entire Southern region of the United States for the murderous act of one deranged zealot—John Wilkes Booth.

And 150 years later, the Republican Party is punishing the entire Southern region of the United States for the murderous act of one deranged zealot—Dylann Storm Roof.

Formed in 1854—not for the abolition of slavery, but for the creation of an American empire centered in the industrialized Northern region of the United States—the Republican Party, from the very beginning, was literally pledged against the South.

Now the Republican Party is pledged against the South, once again.

And just as it is time for Democratic voters all over the United States to abandon the Democratic Party, it is time for Republican voters all over the United States to abandon the Republican Party—especially in the South.

Because history is repeating itself.

 

In the Twentieth Century, idealistic young people gathered in opposition to censorship.

In the Twenty-first Century, idealistic young people gather in support of censorship.

In the Twentieth Century, idealistic young people gathered in support of freedom of speech.

In the Twenty-first Century, idealistic young people gather in opposition to freedom of speech.

How is this happening?

 

On June 17, 2015, Dylann Roof murdered nine people at Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

I am so tired of being punished for his crime.

You should be tired of it too.

WHAT CHRISTIANS WHO “STAND WITH ISRAEL” WILL WANT TO KNOW ABOUT ZIONISM AND THE ZIONIST STATE OF ISRAEL

TWELVE

I have just contacted President-elect and President Trump, for the twelfth time.  Won’t you contact him, for the first time?

LOOK CLOSELY AT THIS FLAG—AND TELL ME WHAT IT SHOWS

WHAT FLAGS SHOW

ONLY YOU CAN STOP “STANDING WITH ISRAEL,” AND START STANDING FOR AMERICA INSTEAD

Zionism is Jewish nationalism.

When you “stand with Israel,” you support Jewish nationalism.

Do you remember how you felt when watching news footage of the tragedy that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017?

That tragedy was not caused by White nationalists, that tragedy was caused by Mike Signer, the White Democratic mayor of Charlottesville, and Wes Bellamy, the Black Democratic vice mayor of Charlottesville—and ultimately by the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley.

And President Trump was not lying when he said there were some very fine people there defending their historical monument against two local despots—there were.

But there were allegedly some White nationalists there too—and do you remember how you felt about those alleged White nationalists?

My mother once said the Nazi Germans were selfish—and that was true, to some extent.

The Nazi (National Socialist) Party of Germany combined socialism with German nationalism.

The Nazi Germans were selfish, in the sense that all that mattered to them was Germany.

But the Nazi Germans’ ideology and agenda were borrowed from Zionist Jews in Germany.

And it was Zionism—Jewish nationalism—that contributed, at least in part, to the rise of German nationalism, in the first place.

Zionist Jews are selfish too.

Zionist Jews only care about Jewry—the Jewish population of the world.

Understand—Zionism has nothing to do with the Jewish religion of Judaism.

Zionism has everything to do with Jews, as an ancestral group—most Zionist Jews are irreligious, and many of them are antireligious.  

Most Zionist Jews are not practitioners of the Jewish faith—they are secular humanists, many of whom proudly consider themselves atheists.

Nationalism is not necessarily a negative ideal—in fact, it is always understandable, and it is sometimes arguably necessary.

There are White nationalists in the United States today, and there are Black nationalists in the United States today—and both groups have valid concerns.

The German nationalists had valid concerns too—and so did the Jewish nationalists.

As a citizen of the United States, you would probably not mind if White nationalists had their own nation somewhere else.

As a citizen of the United States, you would probably not mind if Black nationalists had their own nation somewhere else.

But what if your government established and supported a White-nationalist nation somewhere else—with your money?

What if your government established and supported a Black-nationalist nation somewhere else—with your money?

You wouldn’t like that a bit, would you?

Well, your government established a Jewish-nationalist state somewhere else, in 1948—with your money.

And your government supports this Jewish-nationalist state somewhere else today—with your money.

When you “stand with Israel,” you support your government’s support of a Jewish-nationalist state—with your money, but without your understanding of what you are supporting.

When you “stand with Israel,” you support your government’s support of a Zionist state—with your money, but without your understanding of what you are supporting.

Every year, your United States government donates billions of your tax dollars to support a foreign government that was illegally established, in the first place.

Every year, your United States government spends billions more of your tax dollars on weapons to maintain this foreign government’s brutal occupation of a land that never belonged to it—a brutal subjugation, and even genocide, of the indigenous people of Palestine, by Jews of Eastern European and Turkish descent—not Palestinian descent.

That’s right, just as the Israel of today is not the Israel of Biblical times, the Israelis are not the Israelites.

Almost two thousand years ago, most Jews in the Holy Land left the Holy Land.  And they left it because of persecution by Romans—not Arabs.

These Jews migrated to Turkey and Eastern Europe—where they interbred with Turkish and Eastern European Gentiles for so many centuries that they were barely Jewish, in the end.

But almost two thousand years later, in the late Nineteenth century, an Ashkenazi (Eastern European) Jew in Vienna, by the name of Theodor Herzl, started a Jewish-nationalist movement—the Zionist movement.

The Jewish nationalists—Zionists—decided to establish a purely Jewish state in Palestine.

It didn’t matter to these Jewish nationalists that the land of Palestine—the Holy Land—had been populated primarily by Christian and Muslim Arabs for over 1300 years—since most of the original Jews had left that land almost two thousand years before.

And these Jewish nationalists—wealthy, powerful Jews, not poor Jews in ghettos—forced the hands of a majority of United Nations member states to forcibly establish their Zionist State, their Modern State of Israel, in Palestine in 1948.

And your country, the United States of America, was this Zionist State’s primary supporter then—and is still this Zionist State’s primary supporter now.

Every year, billions of your tax dollars—that could be used to help the American people—are diverted to the Zionist State of Israel, to hurt the Palestinian people instead.

And only you can stop your government from placing the demands of the Israeli government above the needs of the American people.

Only you can stop “standing with Israel,” and start standing for America instead.

WHY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN CONTINUES

As of December 22, 2018, 800,000 federal employees are no longer getting paid.

But every judge of the Supreme Court, and of the lower federal courts, is still getting paid.

And every senator and representative of Congress is still getting paid.

And the President of the United States is still getting paid.

 

As of December 22, 2018, 800,000 federal employees are suffering—badly.

But no judge of the Supreme Court, or of the lower federal courts, is suffering—at all.

And no senator or representative of Congress is suffering—at all.

And the President of the United States is not suffering—at all.

Stop serving Israel, and start serving Florida instead.

Governor (Ron) DeSantis:

Do you serve Florida or Israel?

Your policy of penalizing Airbnb for refusing to serve illegal Jewish settlements in the West Bank shows that you serve Israel—not Florida.

And your policy of providing at least two million of our tax dollars for security for Jewish schools—but not for Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, or Hindu schools—shows that you serve Israel—not Florida.

I did not vote for you or Andrew Gillum—but I was hoping you would not be a neoconservative, Zionist governor, as Rick Scott was.

In the name of God, America, and all that is holy—stop serving Israel, and start serving Florida instead.

A DIFFERENT APPROACH

—Original Message—

Subject: FROM SCOTT MAYO, RE TWO ONLINE PETITIONS I HAVE STARTED

I appreciate your time and consideration, in reading this email.

For a long time now, I’ve been very concerned about the direction our country, the United States, is taking.

Since 2012, I’ve been especially concerned about the destructive impact that unrestrained Digital-Age technology—particularly cellular technology (cellphones and smartphones) and social media (Facebook, Twitter, et al)—is having on our country.

And since June 22, 2015, I’ve been especially concerned about an ongoing trend of state and local politicians censoring their constituents’ historical flags, and destroying their constituents’ historical monuments—without their constituents’ consent.  This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and I have been doing all I can to bring awareness to it, and to elicit the help of my fellow Southern Americans, my fellow Americans, and my fellow human beings worldwide, in stopping this destructive trend.

I have started two petitions on the website, Change.org, on which I would appreciate your adding your signature to mine.

The first is to President Trump, requesting that he remove Nikki Haley from his presidential cabinet—because Nikki Haley is the initial perpetrator of this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, and because Nikki Haley is being rewarded for her exploitation of a mass murder.

The second is to Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward and the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners to return the First Confederate Flag to its rightful place in Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays—the historical flags displays of the five nations under which Pensacola, Florida, has lived and thrived.  These local politicians have censored the First Confederate Flag from our historical flags displays since June 24, 2015—without our consent.  They have not even let us vote on this.

Our country, the United States of America, is in serious danger of self-destruction.  The sociopolitical chaos our country is experiencing in this Digital Age is unprecedented in its history.  And this sociopolitical chaos—driven by unrestrained Digital-Age technology—is spreading all over our world.

Most of us seem to be pretending that everything is fine—as if our country’s problems will simply go away if we ignore them.  But this is never the case—no country’s problems simply go away, as if by magic.

Many of us are quite aware of the danger posed to our country, but feel so powerless to do anything about it that we just give up—we just do nothing, and look forward to our deaths, or to a Biblical event that will require no action on our part.

Of course, neither of these approaches is ever effective.

We can turn our country—and our world—around.  But we can only do this together—and with small, incremental actions.

And signing online petitions is a way of taking small, incremental actions together.

Please click on the links below, and—unless either of these petitions is against everything you believe in—add your signature to these online petitions.  Your signature will be greatly appreciated—perhaps more than you know.

And if you want to learn more about the issues mentioned in this email, you are welcome to view my blog, Solosocial, at solosocial.wordpress.com, and to comment on posts, if you so desire.

Again, thank you so much for your time and consideration.

[Grover C. Robinson IV is now the Mayor of Pensacola, Florida, and Robert Bender is now the Escambia County Commissioner for District 4.  I have updated my petition to return our First Confederate Flag to our Five Flags Displays, to reflect these changes.]

There is no significant difference between these audacious statements—religious conservatives have simply gone from one extreme to another.
