Part three of the Life of Jesus

The Holy Family returns to Galilea

Joseph is told [in a dream] that Herod TG is dead and that he and his family can return to Galilea.

As mentioned before Jesus’s birth is only mentioned in two of the four gospels [Mathew and Mark] the other two gospels [Luke and John] don’t. Why?

The first thing is that they were written from different viewpoints

Part one of the life of Jesus.

Part one of the life of Jesus.

What was Jesus like? Who was Jesus? What made Jesus do and say the things he did?

To know Jesus you have to learn a little of is life, before you can try to understand his teachings and beliefs. Also the main recorded events of Jesus life are in a three year period in which he gathered together his disciples [imagine Mohammed’s companions] Taught his disciples and preached to the mass of the people mainly in Galilea, regardless of religion, nationality, or sex.

Why Channel 4 Documentary "My Week As A Muslim" is a success

There is a lot of criticism out there for the Channel 4 Documentary called “My Week As a Muslim” that was aired tonight.

A lot of it is based on the fact that a non Muslim was taken and “black-faced” to fit as a Muslim/Pakistani stereotype instead of actually talking to actual Muslims.

There are a lot of comments on it on Twitter, a lot of ridicule.

However I think that is part of what makes it a success.

A lot of the comments are accurate. It shouldn't take a white woman to disguise herself as a Pakistani Muslim woman to see the abuse and hate that Muslims can experience.

But it has taken that.

Hate crime is not a new thing. Racist attacks are not a new thing. Even murder of Muslims due to their beliefs is not a new thing.

Sexual assault and "touching the hip"

Sexual assault and similar crimes have been in the headlines recently.

Since the Weinstein scandal broke out with huge allegations of assault, groping, rape and other crimes have been prominent news.

The scandal is expected to simply be the tip of the ice berg in the entertainment industries and since its publication many other events and scandals have been publicised – often with men in power abusing their power criminally either to humiliate or to take sexual advantage.

The Rising of Britain’s ‘New Politics’ by J Pilger.

A decent article on New, new Labour, Here is the link

https://off-guardian.org/2017/10/07/the-rising-of-britains-new-politics/

Well worth a read, remembering the rules.

1] This form of Politics is not just practiced by UK Politicians.

2] As i have said before the first rule in politics is gain power [anyhow] The second rule stay in power [anyhow] again not unique to the UK. [or even politics]

3] Lastly, watch what your leaders do, not what they say. [both political and religious]

For years now there as been an unofficial war between Saudi Arabia and Iran in Yemen. [I am not even going to mention Iraq/Syria and Libya]

You have the mass slaughter of woman and children [who are mainly Muslim] by the use of advanced weapons by the Saudis [who are mainly Muslim]

Yes they [the Saudi’s] are using advanced weapons bought from the west. But there is no compulsion from the west to buy these weapons, or use them woman and children?

Yet if the west by the use of drones kills innocent civilians, or indeed if Israel kills innocent civilians. We have mass protests on the streets against these atrocities.

From an article in the Spectator

Fish Love

Fish & Chips

Fish & Chips
Fish & Chips. And other stuff. That can be eaten.

An interesting video on love:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNx7kDJ2kDI

For some reason the video is not embedding. The video is asking the question whether you love fish. Is it love if you take it out of the ocean, kill it and eat it?

What is described as love in this example is something you find beneficial. You love what you benefit from. This love is then contrasted with another form of love – one that you ivet in, one that you give into and it is suggested that the love where you ge is superior to the love where you recieve.

I dont necessarily agree with it, but it is interested to analyse why we desire what we desire.
