L The collusion of church and government to deny reproductive rights in the name of religion shows no sign of abating in the United States, where nine states last year alone passed unconstitutional bans on abortion. Now, the city council of East Mountain has voted to become the 14th community in Texas to declare itself a “sanctuary city for the unborn.” The vote bans abortion providers from administering abortion care in their jurisdiction, although having a population of only 797, the town isn’t a feasible location for abortion clinics and providers anyway. The vote was driven purely by religious ideology. [See details.]

L The U.S. State Department’s Commission on Unalienable Rights has issued a report “asserting that religious beliefs are more important than other peoples’ rights. The report is Christian Nationalism in print and stamped with government authority, granting the State Department permission to conduct a Christian Nationalist foreign policy. That means not supporting the rights of the LGBTQ community, giving Christian Nationalists a blank check to proselytize, restricting access to HIV/AIDS medications and abortion, and permitting the direct funding of houses of worship abroad.” [See details.]

L On June 30, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Montana law that withheld state aid to private schools, including religious schools, arguing law was akin to discrimination. The decision in Espinoza v. Montana opens the door for lawsuits against similar laws in other states, as well as more broad funding for religious education through publicly funded programs.

Lie of the Month

It Ain’t Natural!

     “Nothing about your body or its functions is either dirty or sinful. … Deny your physical body expression of which it is capable and you will suffer.” … But, sin or not, aren’t lesbians, gays, and swingers performing “unnatural” acts? Numerous self-appointed moralists have claimed that such creativity should be condemned in man because it does not occur in nature. They have been misinformed. … [read more]

Case of the Month

The Rationalist Spirit

Case #46:  This is a “drop-in” case, meaaning one which involves spirits who are strangers to anyone in the circle and who arrive uninvited. Such intrusions are thought to be especially evidential because of the presumed difficulty of any participant reading the information from the mind of a person whose identity and whereabouts are unknown. This case is of special interest because it reveals a rude and belligerent spirit; it is of even more interest because it shows a rude and belligerent spirit transforming into a polite and friendly one.  . . .  [read more]

Worth Repeating This Month
"For the sake of unborn generations a new right understanding of God, the great, tender Father of all must be given to humanity, and the old theological misconceptions of God as a Judge must be swept away."— Pheneas, quoted by Doyle
“I found that even people who vigorously denied and ridiculed the possibility of reincarnation later admitted under trance to having had a previous existence. Upon waking, they again denied that such a possibility existed" — Peter Ramster

This Month's Recommended Reading

Book CoverFingerprints of the Gods — Graham Hancock
The results of a worldwide quest to put together all the pieces of the vast and fascinating jigsaw of mankind’s hidden past. In ancient monuments as far apart as Egypt’s Great Sphinx, the strange Andean ruins of Tihuanaco, and Mexico’s awe-inspiring Temples of the Sun and Moon, Hancock reveals not only the clear fingerprints of an as-yet-unidentified civilization of remote antiquity, but also startling evidence of its vast sophistication, technological advancement, and evolved scientific knowledge.
Book CoverThe Afterlife Experiments: Breakthrough Scientific Evidence of Life After Death,— Gary Schwartz
Risking his academic reputation, Dr. Gary E. Schwartz asked well-known mediums to become part of a series of experiments to prove, or disprove, the existence of an afterlife. This riveting narrative, with electrifying transcripts, documents stringently monitored experiments in which mediums attempted to contact dead friends and relatives of "sitters" who were masked from view and never spoke, depriving the mediums of any cues. Here are the results that awed sitters and researchers alike.
