Interesting....

Well at least logic prevailed.Terry Schiavo was allowed to leave in peace.But her leaving was marred with alot of acrimony between her husband and parents.Compare this to the Pope who left this earth rather peacefully and his life could have been prolonged but he was infirm enough as it was so doing that would not have made sense and anyway he would have been forced to retire something he was not thinking of.Anyway now to wait to see who the next Pope is.
Also as channel upon channel was covering the Pope on Friday, TBN a.k.a The Blasphemy Network ( I'll share that one later ); was celebrating the birthday of their founder Paul Crouch.He and his wife Jan formed it in the 70's.Jan is the mathee who looks like some weird Barbie doll with purple hair'she seems to cry on telly about Jesus once a day at least.
Anyhow they did not mention even one thing about the Pope at all, yes evangelicals and catholics may have diffrent beliefs but they still worship the same God so a mention wouldn't have hurt would it?But it was Paul's birthday and man you should have heard the praises poured onto the man of "faith" and "power" for the hour.TBN has specialised milking those who want hope in their lives.They may have started with noble aims but with time they were hopelessly corrupted.It is known the Paul and Jan are married in name only but for the sake of the TBN brand they stay together as a divorced couple don't have the same appeal as a happy family couple setting.Last year there was a story by a former TBN employee about a relationship he had with Paul.Paul went on to use TBN casj to pay his debts,gave him a job which he was not qualified for but was paid nonetheless.He spoke of the way after having sex with him Paul went on to open the Bible and show him why their relationship was not wrong.In defence Paul said it was common for TBN to pay their employess debts although could not pull out evidence to show other cases and declined to comment on the rest.Well the case was of course settled out of court I mean you don't want the partners to stop sending love gifts do you.The disgusting thing is that they are in Kenya via Family.Not to say that all Family brings is blasphemy but many Kenyan ministries have gone the name it and claim it way and are always singing about sowing seed and stuff.They have reduced God to some sort of vending machine.Anyway I will do a detailed entry on this as it really upsets me to see people capitalising on God via the suffering of the people.

I hope that you have facts on what you are saying and not just going on hearsay. And if it were true, why shoot down the hopes and dreams of the ones who put their faith in God, and not the man. Maybe a prayer for the man would be a better solution, and let God deal with the sin in people's lives. The very fact that you would even print what you did surely makes it seem as if you have nothing else better to do with your time other than to look and comment on the lives and possible mistakes of others

I think I have the right to call out things as I see them. The impact of some of these false ministries has been plain to see all over the world and I will not remain silent no matter how many people like you it rankles.
