ReligionSmoldering Coals of Brentwood Press—Church Fuss

The purpose of this story is to keep a word given to Rick Lemyre, Editor of The Brentwood Press, who felt that this writer had misrepresented him in a piece in response to the front page stories of his papers regarding the eviction of Mountain View Christian Center and Trinity Christian School from their leased public school property in Oakley, California. I promised that if there were any errors in my story, that I would MAKE IT UP to him. And I WILL, as you will see in this story…..

SocietyBREAKING! Last Rites for Richmond Gambling Rights

After several years of hearings that began in 2003, with haggling, cajoling, coercing, threatening and payoffs, the proposed $1.2 billlion Casino-Hotel-Resort at Richmond’s water front, has been given the last rites for the Richmond, Point Molate gambling rights. Even though the voters overwhelmingly made their opposition clear, the tribe of Guidivillle Band of Pomo Indians,  with gambling profiteers behind the proposal, were determined to push this on the people. These tribal casinos were hatched by the mob using white-guilt of past injustices to the Indians to gain traction for the scheme,  in this case, the Guidiville Band of of Pomo Indians to front the project.

ReligionBurning Quran Not So Hot—Another Look

The publicity began full force in September of 2010 when a Florida pastor announced his upcoming, “Burn a Quran Day.” As controversy swelled, the event was on, then it was off, then it was on again. Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center, a tiny church of 50 members, proclaimed that on September 11, 2010, on the 9th anniversary of the 9-11 sneak attacks on America by Muslims, the “Burn a Quran Day” would take place in the parking lot of his church.

SocietyApril Fool’s Day Appropriate for Breaking Headline

In Ultra Liberal California, Christians are generally hated and undermined at every opportunity. A church in Oakley, California has constantly been in the crosshairs of this atheistic, socialist state. especially when it began to have a positive effect on the area of East County, in the Bay Area.  A public school was constructed and just before it opened, the housing crash began, workers were losing their jobs, forced to move due to foreclosures on their homes, and there were no students to enroll in the school. It sat empty. Mountain View Christian Center made arrangements to lease it from the cash strapped town of Oakley, using the classrooms for Trinity Christian School and the auditorium for the worship services. The superintendent of the Oakley School Distirict seemed to be uneasy with the arrangement from the start, and would contempuously refer to the teachers and staff as; “Those Christians.”

ReligionAnti-Bible Book Released for Easter!

Dr. Bart Ehrman is the prime example of a ‘liberal Christian,’ whose dedicated attempts to destroy the foundations of Christianity is becoming well known. He is a member of the outrageous, “Jesus Seminar,” where supposed ‘Biblical Scholars” take apart The New Testament and proclaim that Jesus did not say what he said.” (!)  Ehrman’s whole purpose is to undermine Christianity. He has written some strange Christianity-attack-books with “historic facts to set people straight,” His corrupt ideas are so far out into left field that the crows can’t even get out there to roost. Bad Bart for sure.
