Australia 2008
Ex-Syrian soldier jailed for Olympic Hotel hold-up
A FORMER Syrian army soldier who suffered post-traumatic stress disorder has been jailed for holding up Preston’s Olympic Hotel.
Wearing a balaclava, Riad Barbour burst into

Barbour said he robbed the hotel to do something for his two daughters, aged five and one, who he struggled to support in unskilled jobs.
He said he was illiterate because his parents pulled him out of school when he was young.
Posted Image
In the six months before the robbery he smoked ice and cannabis to cope with low self-esteem and post-traumatic stress.
Barbour was convicted of armed robbery, aggravated burglary, false imprisonment and possessing a drug of addiction.
Judge Gaynor said she lightened his sentence because he pleaded guilty, was remorseful, and unlikely to reoffend.

FROM Crime Victims Support Association

Posted ImageJudge Gaynor said she believed it was unlikely Barbour would re-offend. His relationship with his wife had improved while his sister was now shunned by the extended family in Australia, she said. She sentenced him to five years for the four charges.Posted Image

RNC sends DNC 'you didn't bake this' Obama birthday cake

By Alicia M. Cohn - 08/03/12 03:43 PM ET
Posted Image
The Republican National Committee (RNC) sent the Democratic National Committee (DNC) a birthday cake on Friday, but the DNC sent it back.

The cake read "you didn't bake this" over a picture of President Obama. Text written in icing reads, "Happy birthday, Mr. President." The cake marks the occasion of the president's birthday, which is Saturday, with a play on the "you didn't build that" controversy.

Valin, on his birthday, it's okay to play golf.

For the rest of the year, it is confusing why he takes so much time away when so much needs attention.

Oh good grief. At first, I was with him. And then it turned. Sigh. So very close.

And so my response:

I am sorry you lost your job and I do hope that your family will not suffer too horribly because of it. Bad decisions have very stern consequences are you have discovered. This has clearly been a very tough week for you...and as a colleague of mine once said in a difficult time—an opportunity for learning.

I also respect your right to disagree with Chick-fil-a. I think, if you really do some soul searching you will realize that perhaps what you learned this week, many of the people you hate (including that outstanding young woman) already know. People are human and deserve to be treated with compassion, respect and understanding even when you do not agree with them.

You we're a bully. And bullying yields some very horrific consequences. I hope you will take your own words to heart and not continue to arrogantly preach and push everyone else. That will not change a single person's mind.

This controversy is not about respecting other people, because most of us who support Chick-fil-a honestly don't care if a person is gay or not and feel that is really not any of our business. We do, however, care about the long standing definition of marriage. That is sacred to us. It means something more than a pact between two people about being sexually committed. Bullying us into disregarding the central purpose in our life...to love and obey God, is not incompatible with treating everyone in a loving way—as that young lady taught you this week. We simply believe that marriage is in bad enough shape in this country without defining it down further. That is not about hate. It is about an institution. Think about what it is like for people of faith to have one of their most cherished sacraments co-opted by people who don't respect them for it? How would that feel to you?

Believe it or not, you are loved and you are forgiven. We are no better than you, and you are no better than us. As your side often says, "Be the change you want to be in the world." A lot of people demonstrated that this week.

I wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Even if we still disagree.

You blew it, Buster. I feel sorry for your wife and family, but not for you. I keep thinking about how "purposeful" you felt as you gave poor Rachel a bad time through that window. It was a very immature man I saw, not someone with a job and family. For the sake of your family I wish you good luck in your job search. You're going to need it.

When he talked about how he posted the video and said that he viewed Rachel as "collateral damage", that justified his actions. He did not and even now really does not view Rachel or anyone who disagrees with him as a person of any value.

I am sorry that he lives in a world of his own making in which he must pretend that people are stick figure drawings.

Sermon 604: Bread of Life : 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time


8/2/2012


Please click the play button above to listen now. [follow link]

Again, the Church's Gospel is taken from the sixth chapter of the Gospel of John. The principle concern of this Gospel is to provide testimony to the enduring presence of Christ in the Eucharist. This presence is foreshadowed in the mysterious "showbread' of the ancient temple of Israel. The promise that is symbolized in the "showbread" is fulfilled in the Eucharist. In the Eucharist, the Church partakes of the its own "showbread", though no longer merely a symbol, it is the "Bread of Life"- the life and presence of Christ.Download MP3 File (Right-Click, Save Link As…) | readings | podcast

Ten Commandments Posted Image Posted ImagePosted Image
Torah and Midrash on Aseret Hadiberot Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

The Listing

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
And he gave to Moses, when he had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the
two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God. - Ex. 31:18
Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS are a special set of spiritual imperatives (laws) that the LORD Himself wrote on two stone tablets (luchot) that Moses brought down from Mount Sinai (Ex. 31:18). In the Scriptures these laws are called aseret hadevarim (עֲשֶׂרֶת הַדְּבָרִים) the "ten words" or "ten utterances" (see Ex. 34:28, Deut. 4:13 and Deut. 10:4). In rabbinical writings, they are usually referred to as Aseret haDiberot, and in Christian theological writings they are called the Decalogue (from the Greek words deca [10] and logoi [words]).
Background from the Torah Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

LISTEN

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
As recorded in the Torah, the Exodus from Egypt occurred in the middle of the month of Nisan, immediately following the first Passover. The Israelites journeyed for 44 days until the third new moon (i.e., the 1st day of the month of Sivan [Ex. 19:1]), when they encamped opposite Mount Sinai, the place where Moses was initially commissioned. Moses then ascended the mountain and the LORD commanded him to tell the leaders that if they would obey the LORD and keep His covenant, then they would be the LORD's "kingdom of priests" and "holy nation" (Ex. 19:5-6). After delivering this message, the people responded by proclaiming, kol asher diber Adonai na'aseh ("all that the LORD has spoken, we shall do"). Moses then returned to the mountain and was told to command the people to sanctify themselves before the LORD descended upon the mountain in three days. The people were to abstain from worldly comforts and not so much as touch (under penalty of death) the boundaries of the mountain. "Be ready for the third day; for on the third day the LORD will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people."
