Royal Commission announces final hearings in child sexual #abuse investigation

"The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Childh Sexual Abuse has announced its final schedule of public hearings including a three week examination of Catholic Church authorities which have been the subject of past case studies."

"Korea is famously referred to as a “department store of religions” and for a good reason too. For many Koreans, shamanism is not a foreign concept and I have come by quite a lot of people who call themselves Christians yet also make frequent visits to shamans’ homes. Also, different religious beliefs can be pursued even among family members. The reaction and attitude towards shamanism is definitely different from that of Westerners, and this is to be expected."


"One to One works by tracking people in the U.S. and U.K. who are at a particularly high risk of online indoctrination into extremism, then having former radicals like Amira reach out to these vulnerable individuals. Alongside nine other people recruited from the Against Violent Extremism network, a group of 309 former extremists from all over the world, Amira sends anonymous Facebook messages to women who appear to be supporting ISIS, and tries to deter them."

"British Columbia parent says spiritual smudging ceremony violated religious freedom and asks supreme court to ban expressions of religion in public schools"


"Rabbi Eliezer Berland, founder of the Shuvu Bonim religious group, was extradited to Israel earlier in the year after three years on the run that took him between Zimbabwe, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and South Africa, accompanied by a group of devout followers numbering around 40 families."

"Why are so many secular hospitals imposing religious restrictions on medical care?"

"Hundreds of bodies are strewn across the Jonestown Commune in Jonestown, Guyana where more than 900 members of the People's Temple committed suicide in November 1978."


"In the film, Wyatt plays Ernestine Markham, whom she describes as deeply devoted to Jones. Markham is based on Peoples Temple member Christine Miller, who, recordings of the temple’s last hours show, stood up to Jones as others died around her. She perished in the jungle, too.
“My character was that voice that said, ‘We don’t have to do this,'” Wyatt said.""

CultNEWS101: MIND CONTROL: How people become trapped in Cults

CultNEWS101: MIND CONTROL: How people become trapped in Cults:



How normal people like you and I can easily become gradually duped over a period of time into becoming deceived by a destructive cult!

This video also reveals another frightening scenario: how a handful of corrupt people in positions of authority in the military could issue unjust unconstitutional orders to their subordinates to carry out acts of violence against their fellow countrymen, citizens who are guilty of nothing more than exercising their God-given Constitutional rights to keep and bear arms and protect their lands and their homes and the lives of themselves and their families!

CultNEWS101: Theater Review (NYC): ‘So Amazing!’ by Diana Brown...:



Let’s face it, cults are fascinating. How do people get sucked in? What techniques are at play, what psychological weaknesses? We can’t help seeing ourselves in cult victims and wondering: What got them? Could it get me too? And if they escaped, how did they do it? Diana Brown digs into the matter in her entertaining and thoughtful, if unpolished and not entirely satisfying, autobiographical solo show So Amazing!

11 times the world was supposed to end and didn't

It’s October 7, 2015.

This is the day the world will come to an end, according to a Christian group based in Philadelphia.

It looks like we’re all still here, though it’s probably not the last time we’ll be warned about earth’s annihilation.

Doomsday theorists and religious sects have been predicting The End for thousands of years.

Fortunately, all of these dates have come and gone uneventfully.

To maintain your faith that you’ll live to see October 8, we’ve compiled 11 other dates when the world was supposed to end and didn’t.
