WELCOME TO AUSTRALIA, 2016!
“A former Hillsong Church minister who became a motivational speaker faces domestic violence charges after he allegedly assaulted his wife in a ‘fit of rage’ on New Year’s Eve.
Police from The Hills Local Area Command in Sydney’s north-west arrested Pat Mesiti at his home about 11pm on Thursday.
“‘The accused was heavily intoxicated and in a fit of rage over a family issue,’ Sergeant Michael Plass said.
Mr Mesiti was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and common assault. Police have sought an apprehended violence order on behalf of his second wife, Andrea. Mr Mesiti has not yet been required to enter a plea to the assault charge and it is not known if he will oppose the AVO application.
Fifteen years ago, Mr Mesiti was one of Australia’s most prominent evangelists. He had his own television show and had risen to become a national director of the Pentecostal church movement Australian Christian Churches.
But in 2001 the church leadership at Hillsong discovered he had been sleeping with prostitutes. He was stripped of his licence to minister. His first marriage fell apart.
‘I was basically struggling with a sexual addiction,‘ he told the Christian magazine Sight in 2006. Two years later he told the New Zealand Herald he had ‘lost everything’ following the revelations.
‘I was so depressed that I couldn’t talk for two years. I struggled with my mental health.’
Mr Mesiti went on to become a motivational speaker and self-described “prosperity activist” who now instils people with ‘millionaire mindsets’.
‘Not to brag, but I am a world-renowned prosperity and mindset coach with over 2 million of my books and products sold worldwide,’ he says on his website.
‘I am a sought-after business consultant to Fortune 500 companies and franchises worldwide on leadership, team building, wealth creation and personal development.’
His stated ambition is to create 10,000 millionaires within his lifetime and he has several speaking appearances slated for 2016.
Mr Mesiti could not be reached for comment on Saturday.
Granted bail, he will face Parramatta Local Court on January 12. The police application for an apprehended violence order will be heard on the same day. Assault occasioning actual bodily harm carries a maximum five-year prison sentence.” http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/former-hillsong-pastor-pat-mesiti-faces-domestic-violence-charges-20160101-gly2ld.html#ixzz3w6PB9CU3
Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
Believe it or not “The Swedish flag has now been banned at a primary school in Sweden. The reason is that the flag may be offensive to certain groups and breaking the law “offensive against ethnic groups.”
The sensational ban is introduced at Söndrum school in Halmstad. Use of the flag is now only allowed on the national day or when foreign students are invited.
In an internal letter to school students and their parents who were sent out just before Christmas, the school principal writes that “no other use of the Swedish flag is allowed”, according to Nyheter idag.
It is also believed “that by using the Swedish flag one may be guilty of violating the racism law.” http://www.speisa.com/modules/articles/index.php/item.574/swedish-school-bans-the-swedish-flag.html
So the Swedish flag is offensive to a Muslim. What else might be offensive to a Muslim?
IS THIS PIG OFFENSIVE TO A MUSLIM because it is a pig or is it becaue it is named Mohammad or is it both?
DOES THIS Bacon sandwich offend a Muslim? Yes it does for “Local Winooski, Vermont restaurant Sneakers Bistro has removed a sign that read, “Yield Sneakers Bacon” citing opposition from a Muslim community member and safety concerns.” http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2014/08/23/vermont-restaurant-removes-bacon-sign-due-to-muslim-opposition-and-safety-concerns/
IS THIS FLAG OFFENSIVE TO A MUSLIM with its sword of death?
Are the be-headings in Saudi Arabia offensive to a Muslim? Warning, this video is very graphic! http://www.liveleak.com/ll_embed?f=b5c8c4a0bf28
It seems like only Muslims and their beliefs and culture are worthy of saving and not to be offended! However, I digress, the banning of the Swedish flag is bad enough but also Swedish Muslims will burn their flag and ask for the flag to be changed as that cross on the flag is offensive to them.
“Muslims in Switzerland are demanding that the white cross be removed from the Swiss national flag because as a Christian symbol, it ‘no longer corresponds to today’s Muslim multicultural Switzerland.’” http://www.barenakedislam.com/page/5/
The above article was taken from an article written in September 2011. “An immigrant group based in Bern has called for the emblematic white cross to be removed from the Swiss national flag because as a Christian symbol it ‘no longer corresponds to today’s multicultural Switzerland.’
Ivica Petrusic, the vice president of Second@s Plus, a lobbying group that represents mostly Muslim second-generation foreigners in Switzerland (who colloquially are known as secondos) says the group will launch a nationwide campaign in October to ask Swiss citizens to consider adopting a flag that is less offensive to Muslim immigrants.” http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/2449/immigrants-swiss-flag-cross
Here is a closing commentary on this whole mess we find ourselves in today. This is the second generation Swedish Muslim that is offended by their national flag! They aren’t the newly arrived Muslim immigrant but SECOND GENERATION! They were born and reared in Sweden. How can this be? Is there something being taught in the mosque and the home that makes the young Muslim anti-Swedish?
Secondly, are these offended people born and reared in Sweden true Muslims? It is all too often told the non-Muslim that ISIS is not Islamic. So is there a difference between Islam and Muslim? Therefore is it reasonable to ask, are these offended people in Sweden truly Islamic Muslims? Are those in Saudi Arabia who behead and cut off limbs of people for various crimes, true Islamic Muslims? Are those in Iran that cry death to Israel and the USA true Islamic Muslims? This is not being racist but being truthful and practical.
If Islam is so great WHY aren’t these Muslims rushing to Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Libya, and the United Arab Emirates to name a few?! For that matter why aren’t these Islamic nations opening their borders and arms to welcome these Muslim refugees? NO, rather they pour into non-Muslim nations where they CAN BE OFFENDED?
How long will this idiocy continue? Waiter, bring me a Bacon sandwich!
“Islamic Supremacist organizations like ISIS can be graded on the “Caliphate curve”. The Caliphate curve is based on how quickly an Islamic organization wants to achieve the Caliphate. What we describe as “extreme” or “moderate” is really the speed at which an Islamic group seeks to recreate the Caliphate.
ISIS is at the extreme end of the scale, not because it tortures, kills and rapes, but because it implemented the Caliphate immediately. The atrocities for which ISIS has become known are typical of a functioning Caliphate. The execution of Muslims who do not submit to the Caliph, the ethnic cleansing and sexual slavery of non-Muslims are not aberrations. They are normal behavior for a Caliphate.”
“We are not at war with ISIS. We are at war with everyone on the Caliphate curve. Not because we choose to be, but because like Hitler’s Thousand Year Reich or Communism’s vision of one world under the red flag, the Caliphate is a plan for imposing a totalitarian system on us to deprive us of our rights.
The Nazis and the Communists had a vision for the world. So do the Islamic Supremacists who advocate the restoration of the Caliphate. All three groups occasionally played the victim of our foreign policy, but they were not responding to us, they were trying to bring about their positive vision of an ideal society.”
“The original Islamic expansionism was so devastating not because it managed to seize control over the hinterlands of Arabia, but because it conquered and subjugated civilized cities such as Alexandria, Constantinople, Jerusalem, Athens and Delhi. ISIS envisions repeating these conquests and more, but if it succeeds it will not be because of its military strategy, but because it targets have been colonized.
We can destroy ISIS tomorrow, but we will still be in an extended war with a hundred other groups who all have a vision for restoring the Caliphate. This war will never end until we crush their supremacist agenda by demonstrating that we will never again allow such a horror to exist on this earth. As long as Muslim groups hold out hope for a restoration of the Caliphate this war, in its various forms, will go on.” For the full article go to: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/59588/understanding-the-caliphate-curve-opinion/?utm_source=Breaking+Israel+News&utm_campaign=d81b2aeb22-BIN_evening_1_16&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_b6d3627f72-d81b2aeb22-86688409#8wOXlwBp56pIDhO3.97
“The trouble began on Jan. 12, when 10 U.S. Navy sailors on two small boats evidently mistakenly strayed into Iranian waters in the Persian Gulf. Iran captured the American sailors (nine men, one woman) and held them overnight. This, as Sen. John McCain pointed out, was a violation of international law: ‘[S]overeign immune vessels like navy ships and boats do not lose their sovereign immune status when they are in distress at sea,’ the senator noted in a statement. Under international law, therefore, the sailors ‘are exempt from detention, boarding, or search. Their crews are not subject to detention or arrest.’”
“And the United States government’s response to this calumny? For one, the State Department denied that the Geneva Conventions applied to the captured sailors, because we are ‘not at war with Iran.’ That would come as a surprise to the family members of the scores of American military personnel who have been killed by Iranian explosives in Afghanistan and Iraq. And perhaps more appalling, Secretary of State John Kerry actually thanked Iran for its behavior here. ‘I want to express my gratitude to Iranian authorities for their cooperation in swiftly resolving this matter,’ Secretary Kerry said.”http://www.providencejournal.com/article/20160119/opinion/160119221
“German Television station Tele5 has changed its logo today to a German flag emblazoned with the Islamic star and crescent, just weeks after the New Year’s Eve migrant sex attacks in Cologne.
Tele5 justified the move on Twitter this afternoon, saying that it was a symbol ‘expressing our sympathy to the victims of yesterday’s attack,’ on German tourists in Istanbul. The attack in Istanbul took the lives of 10 tourists, mostly Germans, in Sultanahmet square, a tourist location near the Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia.”
“The Islamic crescent and star has long been a symbol associated with Islamic countries and the Pan-Arab movement. The symbol itself is meant to convey the rule of Islam and Islamic laws and traditions. Many countries from Turkey to Pakistan include the symbol on their flags and it has grown to become the defacto symbol of the Islamic faith.
Since tweeting their justification for their actions the Tele5 twitter has been full of mixed reactions and with outright criticism, leading user @EberhardFuchs to comment, ‘is it not inappropriate to to put an Islamic symbol on the German flag after an Islamist attack?’”
The response from Tele5 stated, ‘we find it rather unfortunate that the half moon crescent has become a symbol of fear. The hilal [crescent] is not a sign of terror.’” http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/01/13/germanys-tele5-tv-channel/
While Christians are prosecuted for not baking cakes for homosexuals; “More than 40 Somali Muslims have apparently decided that if they can’t pray when they want to pray, they would just as soon stay home and collect unemployment. When Green Bay firm Ariens Manufacturing announced Thursday that they would no longer allow their Muslim employees to leave the production line twice a day for prayer, many of them said they would not be back.
‘I have been 35 years in America and I’ve never heard of a company that is not allowing its employees to pray five minutes,’ said employee Adan Hurr. ‘It is absolutely discrimination on its face.’
Except, of course, for the fact that Ariens is in no way prohibiting its Muslim employees from praying. According to a statement from the company (and the employees are not disputing this point), Ariens is merely ‘asking employees to pray during scheduled breaks in designated prayer rooms.’ The company can’t afford to bring production to a stand still twice a day while 53 employees talk to Allah. The fact that Ariens apparently has designated prayer rooms should, by itself, demonstrate how laughable it is to accuse them of discrimination.
A local Imam told the news that the employees were caught in an impossible situation. “If someone tells you, ‘You pray on your break,’ and the break time is not the prayer time? It will be impossible to pray,’ he said.”
“Hopefully someone will talk some sense into these disgruntled Muslims because this is the last thing their religion’s reputation needs right now.” http://totalconservative.com/muslims-walk-off-the-job-citing-discrimination/
