Do We Want the World to End???
The 2012 Mayan Apocalypse is only a few days away …
and there are a lot of people wondering if it’s going to happen. Sorry to burst your bubble, but (Spoiler Alert) nothing’s going to change.The so-called Mayan long count calendar predication of the apocalypse is based a fundamental MISUNDERSTANDING of Mayan calendars and society. It’s so far off base that scientific and anthropological experts can dismiss it with laugh. Yet, if it’s so fundamentally wrong, why do we keep hearing about it? Why are there movies and news casts and websites dedicated to this non-event? Watch the episode and find out!!!!
That is not a Mayan calendar, it’s Aztec!
A Message to the United States
To the men and women of the United States:
More than 40 years ago, U.S. president Richard Nixon announced the war on drugs. Since then, the consumption of illicit subsistences has grown, not diminished.
Mexican president Felipe Calderón’s war on drug trafficking organizations has gone on for more than 5 years, and it has come at a very high cost. More than 60,000 people have already been killed, a growing number of them being innocent civilians.
Please watch this video and think about the role the United States plays in this bloody drug war as both the largest drug consumer in the world and as lead force behind this militarized approach.

via @AmericasVoice: Alabama Faith Leaders Premiere Ad Against State Anti-Immigrant Law #HB56
It’s been six months since Alabama began implementing its worst-in-the-nation anti-immigrant law HB 56. The Alabama state legislature has been in session since mid-February—and will only remain in session until mid-May—yet no legislative action has been taken to repeal the law.
Today, a faith coalition called Faith Leaders for a Welcoming Alabama are taking matters into their own hands, and releasing a “hard-hitting,” “first of its kind” ad highlighting how HB 56 has negatively impacted churches, farms, schools, children, and families. The idea is to get regular Alabamian citizens—and their legislators—to sit up and pay attention to the damage HB 56 has caused. The ad premieres tonight and will run for two weeks.
“We believe in reaching out, and ministering in our communnity,” the ad intones as it transitions between crop fields, churches, and school halls. ”Yet under Alabama’s immigration law, we can be prosecuted for following God’s call to be Good Samaritans. Farmers’ crops are rotting in the fields because there aren’t enough workers for the harvest. Teachers are forced to act like immigration agents instead of educators. The new law hurts children and families, and doesn’t reflect the values of our faith. Call your legislators today. You can make a difference.”
