Roanoke, Virginia’s Christian cabal and the words of the New Testament Jesus

Some of Roanoke, Virginia’s Christian cabal has publicly demonstrated that they do not believe in the Jesus of the New Testament and have never heard or studied the message ascribed to him in what is today known as the New Testament.  Odiously opportunistic, in suppressive stealth, these calloused, cold, cruel covert canonists came with spray paint cans in hand or with wrapping paper and duct tape at the ready, to undo a message of good will to people.  Being more in keeping with veiled votarients vying for the selectivity of a jealous god who favored a few but not all as recorded in Luke 2:14 (written by Saul of Tarsus companion long after the inscription of Mark and Matthew): “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to people He favors!” (Holman Christian Standard Bible 2009; cp. New International Version (NIV): “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” compare with Stephanus 1550 Textus: Δόξα ἐν ὑψίστοις θεῷ καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς εἰρήνη ἐν ἀνθρώποις εὐδοκία or the Vulgate: gloria in altissimis Deo et in terra pax in hominibus bonae voluntatis).

This is not a god for all people.  The deity worshipped by the cabal in Roanoke, Virginia is more like the Republican candidate for President of the USA in 2012, when the candidate rejected the idea that he would represent all of the citizens of the USA (read here and here and here and here with video with the promise to represent 100% here).

Roanoke’s staid and ossified orthodox partisans have defied every word that the Jesus of the New Testament is reputed to have said, the message allegedly preached, and the compassion and love that the magnetic leader of a small sect of pacifist Hebrews heralded.  Instead of using the spears, swords, and knives described in the Torah and Prophets, those who would root out evil in the form of any writing they found disfavor with, used paint and tape and paper.

The rogue Roanoke remonstrators rabidly wrote with slashes of black and tribulations of red during the unhistorical birth date of their god on December 25, 2012 (a month and date artificially created by the Imperial Church invented by the pagan Emperor Constantine I, their scorn for the message commonly found, seldom read, and even less understood in the Gospel ascribed to the authorship of a Matthew (7:1: Μὴ κρίνετε ἵνα μὴ κριθῆτε and the Vulgate: nolite iudicare ut non iudicemini) while with their actions denounced the spirited injunction in the Book of Acts of the Apostles (Πράξεις τῶν Ἀποστόλων, the title was not a part of the original composition but added by Irenaeus late in the second century CE; it is commonly ascribed to Luke, although the authorship is under debate and the earliest records do not make this notation before the second century CE to the fourth century CE; cp. Epiphanius, Panarion 51.11 where it is suggested that he was one of the “Seventy” disciples; with Luke’s historical accuracy questioned in Powell, Mark Allen (1989). What are they saying about Luke? New York: Paulist Press. p. 6. It is argued that much of the Book of the Acts of the Apostles is plagiarized from far older Greek accounts phraseology and plot elements from Euripides’ play The Bacch, cf. Helms, Randel McCram (1997). Who Wrote the Gospels? Altadena, CA: Millennium Press.  The debate on the authorship is summarized by Brown, Raymond E. (1997) in his Introduction to the New Testament, New York: Anchor Bible (1997), pages 267–268, and can be furthered with an analysis of the use of the plural first person pronoun “we” indicated multiple authorships and is sprinkled heavily in the Book of Acts: 16:10–17; 20:5–15; 21:1–18; 27:1– 28). 

The text in question is Luke 10:34: Ἀνοίξας δὲ Πέτρος τὸ στόμα εἶπεν Ἐπ ἀληθείας καταλαμβάνομαι ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν προσωπολήπτης ὁ θεός or in the Vulgate: aperiens autem Petrus os dixit in veritate conperi quoniam non est personarum acceptor Deus).  Even English “translations” differ, and interpretations are as poor as in any department of language interpretation throughout the Third World universities and most schools of higher education in the First World.

Conversion of Saul (Caravaggio)

Conversion of Saul (Caravaggio)

Far worse is tortured truth that these weathered Christians, heralding back to the past when their ancient colleagues tore the flesh off of those who did not share their own sadistic séances with readings of Saul of Tarsus who never met the Jesus of the New Testament (1 Corinthians 9:1-2; Galatians 1:13-14).  Saul’s “conversion” was actually a temporal lobe epilepsy that most likely ended in a convulsion that led to temporary blindness (Landsborough, D. (1987). “St. Paul and Temporal Lobe Epilepsy,” Journal of Neurology Neurosurgury & Psychiatry 1987; 50; 659–64; Geschwind N. (1979). Cp.  “Behavioural changes in temporal lobe epilepsy”. Psychological Medicine. 9 (2: May): 217–219; and Stern, A. (1957). “Zur Problem der Epilepsie des Paulus”. Psychiatria et Neurologia (Basel) May;133(5):276–284; this problem may have affected the prophet Ezekiel: cf. Altschuler, E.L. (2002). “Did Ezekiel have temporal lobe epilepsy?” Archives of General Psychiatry 59 June (6): 561-562).  Saul, who admitted he never met the New Testament Jesus, allegedly wrote letters that rejected and raped the original message of tolerance, and were incorporated by imperial decree when they were not denounced and unpunished since they gave greater grandeur and authority to the male with the subordination of the female.

Using Pauline transmogrification of the Jesus message, the merchants of deceit moved toward Roanoke to add havoc to the winter holidays.  They tightened their theologically taught terrorist Christian act of vandalism and hooliganism so typical of the ancient imperial “catholic [universal] church” (that the Emperor Constantine created in 325 CE (Eusebius, Vita Constantini 36-37) when the centers of worship and homes of charity to the poor and elderly were dedicated to other gods were destroyed or forcibly converted into the pagan temples of Christianity, beginning under the emperor Theodosius I in 381 CE (Theodosian Code 16.10.11) that none were safe) that the right to express an opinion was sacrificed on the stained altar of fanaticism of blind faith in defiance of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the USA.

Christianity has never been a tolerant religion.  Like the bastardization of the ministry of Jesus fetiditly foisted onto the backs of the ignorant by the original Elmer Gantry (the tent revivalist Billy Graham) and subsequent televangelists from G. Pat Robertson to the Bakkers of PTL, today no one knows basic boundaries of decency and carnivorously cannibalizes the cerebrum abilities once thought to possibly exist in the corpus of the community of alleged human beings (at least in name).  The Roanoke, Virginia vandals, as if fresh out of the ancient Sunday school (a pagan institution in origin that was an institution to celebrate, capitalize on and capture the majesty of the Sun God: Sol Invictus, introduced into Roman religion by emperor Heliogabalus (Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus, ca. 203 – 11 March 222; the name is a reference to the god Elagabalus and is the Latinized form of the Syrian Ilāh hag-Gabal, which derives from Ilāh (“god” the prototype for Allah: الله‎ that translates as the God, not God, from the Aramaic “Alaha” or “the [supreme] god/goddess of the moon” (cf. Herodotus, Histories Apodexis, lines 131-132), and Allah’s three daughters: Lat (goddess of fate whose temple was at Mecca, and whom Muhammad worshipped until forbidden to continue with his prayers by the tribal deity Allah), Uzza (Venus, goddess of love and sex) and Manat, goddess of destiny).  These are found in the Qur’an (an-Najm 53:19-22) and constitute the infamous Satanic Verses that read in the earliest copies of the Qur’an but have been deleted in later versions (original text to the left, the redacted text is to the right):

Allah (god of the moon) and his three daughters (goddesses)

Allah (god of the moon) and his three daughters (goddesses)

Near it is the Garden of Abode. Behold, the Lote-tree was shrouded (in mystery unspeakable!) (His) sight never swerved, nor did it go wrong! For truly did he see, of the Signs of his Lord, the Greatest! Have you seen Lat. and ‘Uzza, And another, the third (goddess), Manat? Near it is the Garden of Abode. Behold, the Lote-tree was shrouded (in mystery unspeakable!) (His) sight never swerved, nor did it go wrong! For truly did he see, of the Signs of his Lord, the Greatest! Have you seen Lat. and ‘Uzza, And another, the third (goddess), Manat?
These are the exalted cranes (intermediaries) Whose intercession is to be hoped for. [Words of Satan Deleted]
What! for you the male sex, and for Him, the female? Behold, such would be indeed a division most unfair! (an-Najm 53:19-22) What! for you the male sex, and for Him, the female? Behold, such would be indeed a division most unfair! (an-Najm 53:19-22)

In the ancient world, the crane was a god or goddess (usually naked, since nudity represented purity as with the original “Adam and Eve”–clothing always has represented a sinful condition) who flew to heaven and the throne of the chief god or goddess with the prayers of mortals.  The crane (or stork) is also discussed in the ancient Apiru/Hebrew world (Isaiah 38:14 כְּסוּס עָגוּר כֵּן אֲצַפְצֵף אֶהְגֶּה כַּיֹּונָה דַּלּוּ עֵינַי לַמָּרֹום אֲדֹנָי עָשְׁקָה־לִּי עָרְבֵנִי׃; Jeremiah 8:7 גַּם־חֲסִידָה בַשָּׁמַיִם יָדְעָה מֹועֲדֶיהָ וְתֹר [כ וְסוּס] [ק וְסִיס] וְעָגוּר שָׁמְרוּ אֶת־עֵת בֹּאָנָה וְעַמִּי לֹא יָדְעוּ אֵת מִשְׁפַּט יְהוָה׃) and in medieval (Roman Catholic) Christianity’s bestiary.  In Mecca and the evolution of the myth of Allah, the daughters were the primary messengers for people’s petitions to the god/goddess of the moon (who became Allah).

Add to this the gabal (“mountain” (compare the Hebrew: גבל bul and Arabic: جبل‎ jabal)), and the result is “the God of the Mountain” being the Emesene manifestation of the deity formatted after Heliogabalus, the patron god of Emesa (modern Homs) in the Roman province of Syria, c. 220 CE as an offshoot of the earlier Sol Indiges. 

The Roanoke miscreants’ ministry manifested its Machiavellian materialism in its use of spray paint to deface one of the four Blue Ridge Coalition of Reason billboards in the Roanoke area. Their god is so weak, so petty and so jealous that its Stoßtruppen (whose Obersturmbannführer remained in hiding) had to defend the unholy name by vandalizing the misperceived aspersions on a billboard that merely stated scientific investigational logic: that which cannot be proved most likely does not exist.  Many accept science over faith and find no reason for the existence of a god that even Stephen W. Hawking argued against in his A Brief History of Time: from the Big Bang to Black Holes (Toronto ; New York : Bantam Books, 1988).

Martinsville, VA – Klan leaders Amanda and Chris Barker

Faith was no longer a matter of choice for those who worked for understanding rather than bowing before indoctrination by an Inquisition as terrifying as it was in the darkest ages known to Europe.  This troop of tormenters that had spawn the Ku Klux Klan, adopted neo-NAZI symbolism and revered the machinations of US Senator Joe McCarthy (R-WI) and his gaggle of priests was invigorated once more in the State of Virginia. Matching the theological students in Afghanistan known as Taliban (Pashto: طالبان‎, identical to the Hitlerjugend spawned by the Sturmabteilung; cf. Klee, Ernst (2005). Das Personenlexikon zum Dritten Reich. Wer war was vor und nach 1945, Frankfurt am Main, Deutschland: Fischer Taschenbuch Verlag, Zweite aktualisierte Auflage), the firebrands of evangelical extremism bred on hate and swallowed poisoned draughts of bigotry, creating their current curdled culture of predatory practitioners, pastors, priests, and pandering paternalizing  people taking up the challenge of the religious right to dismantle the Constitution of the USA and its First Amendment.

Those who attacked reasoned debate, an environment of inquiry and dialogue were solid supporters of the NRA and those who argue that all teachers should arm themselves and that every home should have a gun so the homeowner could “stand your ground” if she or he felt threatened, as has happened throughout the USA.  Michael Jock, a man in Florida shot a customer, Randall White who was complaining about slow service  at Little Cesar’s Pizza and raised his hand against Jock’s pushing him, leading Jock to pull a .38 Taurus Ultralight Special Revolver and fired a shot into the White’s torso, claiming that he “feared for” his life.

George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin who on December 28, 2012, was exposed for concocting an escape plan as if it was a scenario for a Hollywood film to get out of paying a security firm $27,027, according to court documents, to send armed bodyguards from Associated Investigative Services (AIS) to meet Zimmerman at the Seminole County jail and dress him in body armour before speeding him off in a rental vehicle previously checked for hidden GPS tracking devices, put him in a disabled stall in a major hotel’s main bathroom, change his clothes and put on dark glasses so that he could walk to a different vehicle that would carry him to a “safe house”.

Michael Dunn, also of Florida, used the Stand Your Ground law to murder an unarmed teenager over loud music (read here and here).  All of those who “Stood Your Ground” are god-fearing, “good Christians” with no tolerance for racial or other minorities.

New studies show more people are shot to death with ALEC/NRA “Stand Your Ground” laws.  The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), a private non-profit and the largest economics research organization in the United States released a working paper showing that deaths due to the law increased between 4 and 8 additional deaths each month, and Texas A&M University researchers also released a study in June 2012, finding states that passed the laws saw an increase in homicides between 7 and 9 percent annually, which amounts to between 500 and 700 homicides cumulatively, with no drop in violent crime rates.  This is but an extension of the religious wars that have bloodstained history since the inception and invention of religion by mortal men.

dying for the same godThese are the people who claim to be men and women of god (but which god? or goddess?) who bark out demands that god be put back into school rooms, that prayers are made mandatory, and that reason and investigation be curbed.

Second attack on Coalition of Reason billboard (Roanoke, VA, December 28, 2012)

Second attack on Coalition of Reason billboard (Roanoke, VA, December 28, 2012)

A second of the four Blue Ridge Coalition of Reason billboards in the Roanoke area was found vandalized on December 28, 2012. The billboard at 32 Boulevard Street near the underpass and just north of Patterson, in Roanoke, facing south, originally read: “Don’t believe in God? Join the club.” But the “n’t” was blocked out with wrapping paper and duct tape, leaving the text to read “Do”, in keeping with the Christian assassins in Alexandria who pulled the famed mathematician, philosopher and librarian Hypatia (c. 350/370-415 CE), skinning her alive with their finger nails and throwing her onto a pile of burning ancient and new scrolls that did not praise their concept of a warrior Christ (Matthew 10:34) when she screamed “Do not destroy the works of the greats for the arrogance of the ignorant [the bishop Cyril was named the new Coptic [pope] Theophilius]”  Her murder marked the end of classical antiquity and academic scholarship for the next 1000 years (Wider, Kathleen (1986). “Women Philosophers in the Ancient Greek World: Donning the Mantle” in Hypatia, Vol 1 No 1 (Spring, 1986): pp. 21-62; Indianapolis, IN: Indiana University Press p. 49–50; Mangasarian, Mangasar Mugurditch (1915).

Fred Edwords (National Director Coalition of Reason)

Roanoke avengers with as little skill and intelligence as the ancient chrestianos, felt compelled to silence dissent, dissolve the conduct of inquiry, and demonstrate their own prejudice in raw refutation of John 13:34 and Ephesians 4:32. The prejudice in Roanoke against any one who would question religious faith is very real, leading Fred Edwords, national director of United Coalition of Reason to respond: “Prejudice against non-theistic and other non-religious people continues to be very real in America, so we are forced to speak out whenever these unfortunate incidents occur.”  This is more in keeping with the rage of Jeremiah 4:7 (עָלָה אַרְיֵה מִסֻּבְּכֹו וּמַשְׁחִית גֹּויִם נָסַע יָצָא מִמְּקֹמֹו לָשׂוּם אַרְצֵךְ לְשַׁמָּה עָרַיִךְ תִּצֶּינָה מֵאֵין יֹושֵׁב׃) and the segregation of Leviticus 13:44 (אִישׁ־צָרוּעַ הוּא טָמֵא הוּא טַמֵּא יְטַמְּאֶנּוּ הַכֹּהֵן בְּרֹאשֹׁו נִגְעֹו׃ : where lepers are condemned as “unclean”) demonstrating that nothing within the book matches the message of Jesus of the New Testament who even ate with “the unclean”—that had nothing to do with the lack of a bath—and visited with the adulteress in John 8:1-11.

On its website at www.BlueRidgeCoR.org, the Blue Ridge Coalition of Reason declares its purpose as “a joint outreach effort” to help the public connect with “local freethought [sic], humanist, atheist, agnostic, rationalist” and other such groups. It provides interested people “with information and a sense of community.” The coalition was officially launched December 19, 2012, when the billboards were announced.

Tea Party Terrorist Carol McGuire attacking New Hampshire workers

Carol McGuire (R-NH 8th District)

Freshman State Representative Carol McGuire (8th District Merrimack, from Epsom; she moved to New Hampshire in 2004, to change it into state sovereignty) thinks that any minimum wage is a bad idea. She worked hard to end minimum wage, and when the New Hampshire legislature enacted such a travesty, it was vetoed by New Hampshire’s governor.  Undeterred, the far right-wing ideologue, Republican New Hampshire legislator fought back and with her cronies was able to override the governor’s veto.  McGuire reasoned that no student, no youth, no young person was ever worth more than $5 an hour–and had the support of New Hampshire restaurants that contributed heavily to her Tea Party (Ron Paul is one of her contributors) campaign war chest and terrorist attacks on labor, unions, workers, families, and those who are not well off financially and have little hope of any normal life in the state that she is running like the Fourth Reich.  Her goal is to have corporations in New Hampshire (and those who have headquarters in other states or outside of the USA) pay workers “whatever they like” to pay, regardless if it is a livable wage or borders on poverty.

McGuire argued that New Hampshire’s $7.25 minimum wage was wasted on young labor.  The Republican Party, controlled by the Koch Brothers of Kansas and their Tea Party led by Dick Armey of Denton, Texas, said that any minimum wage was job-killing legislation, and was following in lock-step with the dictates of Henry Veilleux, lobbyist for the New Hampshire Lodging and Restaurant Association, who demanded the erasure of minimum wage since the restaurants in New Hampshire were already paying minimum wage (and many less than minimum wage) to those who cleared tables, and Veilleux warned that jobs would be lost if wages were not cut; many table attendants, those who wait on tables and their customers frequently make only $3 an hour and depend on the rest of their income from tips.  New Hampshire people, however, seldom leave more than 10%, so if a meal costs $10, the tip is usually $1. As the Concord NH Monitor noted, McGuire has no interest in the “have-nots”, going so far as to question any free utilities for the poor or unemployed, and in 2009, moving legislation to cut cable off of New Hampshire utility protection laws.  With her husband, Dan, who also sits in the New Hampshire Legislature, Carol has introduced legislation to eliminate passenger rail service and clean energy financing (known as PACE: Property Assessed Clean Energy; Carol McGuire argues that PACE would cost too much, and introduced legislation to kill the bill in keeping with the wishes of the Koch Brothers and Koch Industries), end clean energy and environmental protection, and taking aim against basic civil and human rights.  Dan and Carol Dan McGuire have been coordinating libertarian events in Oregon and Washington for the  Free State Project (FSP), founded by the Koch-funded Mercatus Center’s Jason Sorens, and receive “gifts” from the Koch Brothers that are never reported to the New Hampshire government nor recorded on their federal tax returns.

Unwilling to study basic New Hampshire’s economics, Carol McGuire showed ignorance of minimum wage in New Hampshire that was already low.  Having been born in 1957, she did not have to work, but in 1960 the minimum wage in New Hampshire, adjusted to 2006 dollars was more than $9an hour.  By 2011, New Hampshire residents had regressed to a subsistent level of earning, and those with a spouse and family could barely make a living, and many turned to drugs to escape the misery of working in New Hampshire.  The young people of New Hampshire that McGuire insulted, issued a warning that they would challenge her at the polls in 2012, noting that “young Americans who are grappling with both skyrocketing health care and education costs due to irresponsible budget cuts by GOP governors nationwide, desperately need the protection of a minimum wage that provides them some ability to work their way through school and into the middle class.”

McGuire’s callousness, however, was not universally accepted nor endorsed.  Curtis Barry, lobbyist for the Retail Merchants Association of New Hampshire, said the association took no position on the effort to repeal New Hampshire’s law.  Barry added that he’s not aware of any retailers wishing for the minimum wage to be lowered.

Dan McGuire (R-NH) husband of Carol McGuire

McGuire is either too busy, or too ashamed of herself, even to give a brief biographical sketch of her life, education and career on the official New Hampshire legislature’s House webpage.  However, much is easily found about this legislator who received only $805 in donations in 2010 ($500 came from one Florida lawyer in 2006, and the state that sent the bulk of contributions was Iowa; her husband, who lists himself as “retired” gave the maximum amounts from 1998 to 2010), and bested her nearest Republican opponent, Jon Richardson, by 84 votes (there were four Republicans on the ballots, and the other three had more than 6000 votes between them).  

Carol McGuire took an BS in mechanical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and MBA from Boston University. She is married to Daniel.  Daniel McGuire earned a BS and MS (1980) in electrical engineering and computer science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a PhD in electrical engineering and computer science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1986.  He is on record as being Jewish, but his passion is for pre-Civl War states rights, limiting workers rights, and being a part of the Libertarian movement

Dan McGuire was born in Phoenix, AZ.  After a four-year teaching contract as Assistant Professor, Computer Engineering, University of California, Santa Cruz, 1986-1990, he moved to the State of Washington and worked on far-right-wing projects before carpetbagging to New Hampshire in 2004: knowing neither the history, politics, or culture of the state–but heavily funded by fringe groups.  Neither Dan nor Carol had any interest in New Hampshire until  after the FSP called for its members to make the pilgrimage.  Docile and obedient, the McGuires moved to New Hampshire.

Dan was involved with local politics after moving to New Hampshire.  He served without distinction as the Chairman of the Epson Town Planning Board. 

In 2010, Dan won a seat in the State Legislature (also from the 8th District Merrimack, that his wife has represented since 2008) after being chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Liberty Caucus.  The Liberty Caucus is an extremist group that works that works against labor and organized unions including teachers, wants lower taxes, elimination of federal agencies, less regulation (and the ending of the Enviornmental Protection Agency), a strong national defense with fewer military bases abroad, and no foreign aid. Many of its members are enrolled in the Tea Party and numerous recognized hate groups, including the KKK, American Nazi Party, Americans for Posterity, Family Research Council, and other organizations chartered to end democracy in the USA as it is presently known.  The traditional Republican Party in Florida (and elsewhere) has denounced it and many traditional Republicans see it as an extension of the Libertarian Party as well as a group that practices mind-control.  

Carol and Dan list no children, nor does Carol register a religious affiliation.  She hails, instead, her conservative affiliations.  

Both  Carol and Dan are seeking a revolution (which is permitted by the New Hampshire Constitution, Article 10, although revolution must be for the common benefit, protection, and security, of the whole community, and not for the private interest or emolument of any one man) within the USA to refit it to end all forms of government help to the poor, the young, the elderly, students, and those not a part of Ron Paul’s pact of Libertarians.  Neither are New Hampshirites nor have any interest in New Hampshire, as their goal is to move from state to state to formet their revolution, being well-funded by the Koch Brothers and Koch Industries.

Charles and David Koch

The McGuires actions have led several groups to writing New Hampshire off as a vacation spot or for investment, noting McGuire’s actions to be fascist.  There is little doubt the State of New Hampshire’s legislature is now owned by the Koch Brothers and their stealth organizations AFP and ALEC.  Freedom is an illusion at best in New Hampshire.  With the McGuires and Koch Brothers in charge, New Hampshires offers its people the freedom to be a substandard wage, the freedom to be poor, the freedom to have underfunded schools, the freedom to attempt to negotiate labor standards and wages on a one-on-one basis: the employee bartering and bargaining with the employer, and the freedom to have little to no say in government as the legislature becomes increasingly more receptive to those who were neither born nor raised in New Hampshire but can be on the ballot within a few years after entering the state (the New Hampshire State Constitution, Article 14, only requires: Every member of the house of representatives shall be chosen by ballot; and, for two years, at least, next preceding his election shall have been an inhabitant of this state; shall be, at the time of his election, an inhabitant of the town, ward, place, or district he may be chosen to represent and shall cease to represent such town, ward, place, or district immediately on his ceasing to be qualified as aforesaid).  In short, anyone can enter New Hampshire, live in a town for two years, and run for a seat in the House and repeal, amend, initiate, and refine existing laws even at the expense of the voters.  No elected official has to have the best interest in mind for the people of New Hampshire, if that person is elected; instead the representative can represent interests outside of the state, as is the goal of the Koch Brothers.
