Logic!

*******

A tweet I saw this morning:

Mosque not integral to Islam- supreme court upholds its previous verdict-Sure, O.K. But then when Muslim citizens offer Namaz in the open, Chief Ministers need not say, they should be praying inside masjids. Haina?

In above, the editing, by way of ‘underlining,’ is mine.

Masjid = Mosque.

Haina means ‘Isn’t it?’

And, where Barkha says, in the politically correct, media editor’s way ‘Need not,’ I, in my bull headed way would say: ‘Should Not.’

And these judges think they are Impartial, Central, – as in leaning to No side, etc.

Go tell it to the Birds, fellas.

A Slap in the Face!

*******

A Slap in the Face of Our so-called justice system. …Posted by One who is Fed up with all this. …So what can they do? Cut off my head? Much do I care.

The following from Facebook. Says: The Notorious Looters of Thorium arrested, with their vehicles.

As I said, a Slap in the Face. But the Face means more than the part of the body. It stands for Honour. But long have they lost their honour. Shame. 😦

The Right Way of Observing Lent

We had started by trying to See What Lent is, or, in other words, What Lent Means. Lent is that Special Time when We make Our Lives Better, by becoming More ‘Other-Centric,’ (Paraanta Sukhaaya). The Lord has been Very Particular about the Right Way of Observing Our Lent, – ‘Observing the Fasts,’ as it was more-known in those times.

We know people hold Competitions in Eating. Lent is Not seeing Who can Fast the Most, or Do the Hardest Penances. No Prizes nor Certificates issued here.

*******

The people had asked: “Why should we Fast if the Lord Never notices? Why should we go without food if He pays No attention?” Isaiah 58:3. …Terrifying, is it not? That the Lord would Not even pay attention, even if one went on Fasts, and all? But there had been Reason behind that. The Lord had Clarified.

He had said:

“…At the Time you Fast, you pursue your own interests, and Oppress your Workers. you turn Violent, you Quarrel and you Fight

Do you think This kind of Fasting will make Me Listen to your Prayers?

When you Fast, you make yourself suffer; you bow your heads low like a (broken) blade of Grass. you spread out Sackcloth and lie on it.”

Broken, Bent Grass

(Broken, Bent Grass. Image Courtesy: daybreaksdevotions.wordpress.com)

He had continued:

“Is That What you call Fasting? Do you think I will be Pleased with That?

The Kind of Fasting I want is this: Remove the Chains of Oppression and the Yoke of Injustice, and Let the Oppressed Go Free! Share your Food… Do Not Refuse to Help…”

…The Lord Re-Iterates these Same thoughts in the Same Chapter:

If you put an End to Oppression, to Every Gesture of Contempt, and to Every evil word; If you Give Food to the Hungry and Satisfy those who are in Need, Then the Darkness around you will turn to the Brightness of Noon!”

All of the Above are taken from the 58th Chapter of Isaiah. Well worth Your read.

And I Cannot Add to That!

I would like to Condense it into These Words:

“Remove Oppression and Injustice.”

That would be the Right way of Observing Lent. A Life-long process, may be. But Asked for by the Lord. And a Meaningfully Observed Lent Would make Our Live Better.

[These be Some Goodly words to Judges, Officers and Officials, by the Way! HE is Observing. And HE can Afford to wait. We are going to land up at HIS door.]

Adios to Affluenza: Sentencing of the Rich and Poor

What we Call, and Think of, as Civilization, hides Much of Barbarism. Our Brother T is Very good in describing such things. This fills me with Rage and Shame.

The problem is Not just that people behave like this.

The Real Problem is that those who are Supposed to Teach us Values have Failed Us.

[For all that, I consider and call our judges and many police officers as Criminals, themselves.]

How two Young Girls managed to Rape and Hang Themselves

The CBI, the central bureau of investigation of India, that August body, says that: ‘Badaun gangrape accused clear lie-detection test.’ Reference below. Badaun is the place in UP, India, where 2 Minors had been Gangraped and Hung. Lest We Forget, Here is the Infamous picture, (from the Internet).

Minors gangraped n killed in up 0514

Sherlock Holmes, Rex Stout and G. K. Chesterton, all agree that in that case the Girls must have Raped-and-Hung themselves. Sodomizing oneself is difficult enough. But I suppose all these things ‘Are’ possible, after all.

In India, even the agency that counts Farts is a government one. The cbi is no different. They fawn up to the ruling parties, and fall over themselves in doing so. That is One Reason I just ‘Love’ these government Servants.

It all comes from their thinking that the ‘government’ pays them their salaries. So Sad.

From the President down, the ministers, the judges, the police and ALL ‘government’ Servants Receive their Salaries from the People, the Citizens, of India. As such, It is the Citizens, their Real Masters, that they must learn to Serve.

Let my Right Hand Wither!

The Priest, Bishop and the Pope should have Enthusiasm, Fervour, Yearning and Zeal for the Kingdom of God AS MUCH AS…

Israel was devastated. So was Jerusalem, their Temple city. There were the Israelites, settled on the banks of the Rivers of Babylon, by their captors. They had their Food, had their Water and a Place to Stay. Slaves are given all these things. They cannot Work if they are too weak, or sick, can they?

Besides getting this Free Labour, those babylonians had wanted the Israelites to ‘Entertain; them, sing them songs from their country, no less. If those Israelites had done that, they could have got some money or other favours!

But what they had said was: “If, on these foreign banks, We forget what happened to You, Oh, Jerusalem,

  • Let our Right Hands Wither, (So that We cannot play a Harp again), and
  • Let our Tongue Cleave to our Mouths, (So that We shall not be able to Sing again). Psalm 137:5 and 6.

What We see below is a Nice picture of Jesus healing a man with a Withered hand. If a hand gets Withered, that hand will not ‘work;’ that hand cannot lift itself up, and We have to use our other hand for that. As this man is doing. That is a Withered Hand.

When I searched for more images of ‘Withered hands,’ what I got were Gruesome in the extreme. What I show now is bad enough.

THIS was what the Jews were ready to Accept, in their Zeal for Love of Jerusalem and their country.

The Zen Masters say that We have to desire enlightenment AS MUCH AS a drowning man desires Air. The Masters will sense that, and will not accept a pupil who has less enthusiasm than that.

The picture below is a good one. He has fallen into the water with his full set of clothes. In these conditions, even if You know swimming, You are in trouble. His facial expressions express his situation quite well. He seems to realize it.

THIS is How much Fervour We should have in Service of the Lord. AS this man is yearning for Oxygen and the Shore, SO should We desire the Establishment of the Kingdom of God.

If We do Not have the SAME Zeal for Christ, His Teachings, AND His Injunctions, We Fail. And He is Sure to say to Us, “You have Wasted the Talents I gave You.”

*******

We have the words, “Zeal for Your house CONSUMES me,” Thrice in the Bible, Psalms 69:9 and 119:139, and John 2:17.

The Word of God IS a Consuming Fire.

  • Are they saying to you: “Prophesy Not unto Us?” Why Not? (Isaiah 30:10).
  • Are they saying, “These words are Too Hard?” Why Not? (John 6:60).

Are We giving them What they WANT to listen? …You should know the reference to this.

My Dear father, bishop and pope, We keep Crucifixes in front of our eyes. And Why? To remind us of what He had suffered for Us. But are His Sufferings Over? Did He Not say: “Saul, Saul, Why are You Persecuting Me?”

WOULD WE DARE TO USE THIS PICTURE AS YOUR WALLPAPER FOR THIS LENT?

Do it, and Answer that Girl, Who is asking: “Am I not a Child? Have I to Work like this to Eat? Have I No Right to Play?”

And Above All her Question: “What, Dear Father, Bishop and Pope, have You done for me in Concrete Terms? When can I Expect this to End?!”

To Organize charities is Easy. To Speak Out is MORE Difficult. The Clergy CAN make a Difference. THAT was why even hitler eliminated them. Would We Dare to say: “Let my right hand Wither, Let my tongue cleave to my mouth, If I do not Speak out for You, my Lord.”
