JEFF WRIGHT For CT State TREASURER-"The Cash Cop" Endorsed By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Yf2o3z90pA&feature=player_embedded#!

WHAT JEFF WRIGHT SAYS (and why he is the candidate for Rev. Barb):

I am running for State Treasurer because I want my three young children to want – and be able – to live in Connecticut when they grow up.

We have serious economic challenges and I want to help a Republican Governor stop the spending and borrowing that has led to record deficits. As State Treasurer, I can bring my professional and government experience to help erase the red ink and help get Connecticut’s fiscal house in order.

The state pension fund is underfunded at 65 percent where normal funding levels are close to 80 percent. In addition, the investment returns on the fund are not keeping up with demand or with the general average of other state funds. Recently, the national rating agencies downgraded Connecticut’s bond rating, potentially making borrowing more expensive in the future.

Recent reports suggest the state unfunded pension liabilities and unfunded health care pension liabilities could top $40 billion.

We cannot keep using the Treasury as a credit card without limits. We need to close the state’s purse tight, stop the endless borrowing and start to rebuild our assets so our unfunded obligations do not further erode our state’s ability to be competitive.
Those are Jeff's own words and here is his Bio:
ABOUT JEFF WRIGHT

•Mayor of Newington, second term and former seven-year MDC commissioner
•Married to Marina Wright, three children Luke (9), John (6) and Grace (2)
•Owner of Jeff Wright, CFP, independent financial planning practice, Certified Financial Planner
•Served in United States Marine Corps Reserve, Honorable Discharge 1997
•Graduated from Marist College 1994, B.A. Economics

'ASPCA & Madeleine Pickens Pony Express To Help Wild Horses-Please Help' By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

Madeleine Pickens' Pony Express to Save America’s Wild Horses
Sponsor: Madeleine Pickens
ASPCA Position: Support
Action Needed: Please visit the National Wild Horse Foundation today and send a letter to Washington by Pony Express!
Dear Ones:    
Please join those of us dedicated to ending animal cruelty and promoting animal welfare.  The ASPCA is sponsoring a drive to petition President Obama to impel the BLM (Bureau Of Land Management) to STOP it's inhumane round-up and destruction of wild horses and burros.
https://secure2.convio.net/aspca/site/Advocacy?pagename=homepage&id=2741  

     Remember the movie 'The Misfits' with Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0055184/plotsummary  "Roslyn divorces Ray in Reno and then meets widower Guido. He likes her but introduces her to cowboy Gay, and those two fall in love. When she learns that Gay, Guido and Perce are going to turn wild horses ("misfits") into dog food, she protests. Written by Ed Stephan stephan@cc.wwu.edu  

Roslyn is a very beautiful woman who just got divorced. She meets two friends, Guido and Gay, who take her to Guido's house in the country to relax and forget the difficulties of the past few weeks. Everything is fine at first, but soon the two men fall in love with Roslyn and start showing some bad aspects of their characters. Soon they meet another friend of Gay's, and the four of them go to hunt some wild horses. This is when things just... explode! Written by Chris Makrozahopoulos makzax@hotmail.com

To: Barack Obama (D), President
     Ken Salazar, Secretary of the Interior, Secretary
     Robert V. Abbey, Director
Subject: SANCTUARY NOW: Stop the CRUEL SUMMER ROUND-UPS OF WILD HORSES
Dear The United States Government,

The shameful summer roundup of wild mustangs must be stopped!! The BLM needs to place an immediate suspension on the summer roundups, and a complete moratorium on removing horses from the range, unless it's a documented emergency. (ie: natural catastrophes)

I support Madeleine Pickens' Wild Horse Eco Sanctuary for horses now in BLM holding facilities and others that the agency is removing from the range - the millions of acres that should be adequate to support these majestic animals. Her solution represents a taxpayer savings and an answer to the need for humane treatment.

The loss of this American icon is bad enough; the animal cruelty that has already occurred as a result of the hot weather roundup methods and other offenses is a travesty on this country's history.


Please take whatever action is necessary to save these wonderful animals - and a piece of American history!


I pray that you, as our representatives, will find the compassion in your hearts to realize how very cruel the current practices in effect are--the very ones that you, yourselves sanction and allow to continue. The American people are BETTER than this and we are KINDER than this. I pray that God bends your hearts in the right direction. Let Madeleine Pickens' Wild Horse Eco Sanctuary prevail and allow the land-use necessary. You will not only prevent further torturing, taunting and maiming of innocent WILD MUSTANGS and BURROS, but you will be doing so in a cost-effective way!
Thank you.
God Bless You and God Bless America

'Shariah Law Preached From Stamford Church Steps?' By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets The Cross"

Front row from left, Midhat Syed, Zubair Quadri and Suhail Kadri
SHARIA LAWYER MIDHAT H. SYED ON LEFT Front
Dear Readers:
     Once in a while history does, indeed, repeat itself.  On the steps of a church, the First Congregational Church (FCC) of Stamford, a recent pro-NYC Ground ZERO Mosque/pro-Muslim 'prayer vigil' has seemingly turned back the hands-of-time.
     I am reminded of the days when men had their heads lopped off and women (not quite deserving of such a rapid and clean death) were stoned to death BY FCC CHURCH OFFICIALS (and in other UCC Churches, as well) all over the country years ago. 
     This FCC Church has a RICH AND COLORFUL HISTORY of clapping people in 'stocks' and drowning and burning not a few 'witches'.  The 'color' of that 'history' is red--the color of innocent blood.
     Back when I was STILL PROUD of FCC Stamford, we ALL tried to accentuate the positives of our church history (the abolitionist history helping the Underground Railroad, for instance and trail-blazing work on civil and womens' rights and GLBT ONA/inclusion before it was in-EVERY ONE'S FACE and not 'bullying', aggressive and intolerant as it is now)  
     In fact, many of us go way-back to the civil rights activism of our youth, completely engaged and convicted of the kind of change we could all believe in.  We may not have 'trusted anyone over 30', but we did, at least, have a very real and open transparency.
     But the 'BAD church legacy'...well, THAT we tried to push aside and relegate to the annals of history, never to be repeated again by anyone related to THAT hallowed old church, oh no.
     All those old and awful church deeds done back then were at the directive of the Pastor-in-power at the time. Not much is different today, except for the fact that the Pastor is a woman and a lawyer and a proud lesbian at that.  Isn't America grand?
     Not one to rest on her laurels, our Pastor Carrietta Jackson, Esq. here has decided to take on ONE BIG CHALLENGE, we see.  She, along with the church body--presumably-- has adopted a new role as 'the hub' of pro-Muslim, pro-Mosque promotion in the Stamford area. 

Speakers Midhat Syed and Faisal Quadri at the First Congregational Church iin Stamford on Tuesday where Muslims were supported in a prayer vigil.
     Along with the Interfaith Council of Southwestern CT, Pastor Carrie 'LAWYERED UP' those Walton Place church steps, but good.  Out of the abundance of goodness and compassion of my heart, I will allow the benefit of the POSSIBILITY that she actually didn't REALIZE just WHOM she was allowing to TRUMPET on the steps of her church edifice, but who knows?
     She, a Christian and a  lawyer purveying and protecting the laws 'fulfilled in Christ', as well as the laws of the United States of America and of the states she is licensed to practice in was there with Rabbi Josh Hammerman, who spoke forth as purveyor of the 613 Laws of Moses.
     Accompanying them was Midhat H. Syed, Stamford's own Sharia lawyer promulgating and protecting  whatever he was promulgating and protecting  on those dusty old stone church steps.  Read below about Sharia Law and see if you can guess, since, to-date, no one's saying.
LINK: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sharia  Here's one take on Sharia:
"Confusion between Sharia and customary law
According to Jan Michiel Otto, Professor of Law and Governance in Developing Countries at Leiden University, "Anthropological research shows that people in local communities often do not distinguish clearly whether and to what extent their norms and practices are based on local tradition, tribal custom, or religion. Those who adhere to a confrontational view of sharia tend to ascribe many undesirable practices to sharia and religion overlooking custom and culture, even if high ranking religious authorities have stated the opposite." Professor Otto's analysis appears in a paper commissioned by the Netherlands Foreign Ministry.[50]" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sharia 
     Perhaps someone from the Stamford 'rally' will fill us in here before the next event at the North Congregational Church (a UCC church, like FCC Stamford), whenever it will be.  I understand the wish to promote 'interfaith awareness and cooperation'. 
     But it cannot really be true to ANYONE'S religion--Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, etc, etc.--when the 'Sharia law aspect of all Islam' is ignored. 
     All that does is hoodwink everyone who doesn't take the time and care to take a 'second look' at all this.


Sharia lawyer Midhat H. Syed preaching at FCC Stamford
     I just wonder how much Cari Jackson knew what 'all' she was 'allowing' to go on.  Did she know?  Did she care?  It strikes me as 'unlikely' that she'd do anything at all without careful deliberation, but who knows? 

Rev. Cari Jackson and ?
     It  just could be that her old rebellious streak--against many things American and all things masculine--took up residence in that place of her heart reserved for acts of uncivil disobedience and she just let loose without regard for the implications of 'giving a Shari'a lawyer' a platform from which to trumpet his ideologies.
     There are more 'contradictions' and inanities here than meet the eye at first glance.  Consider the other COUNTRIES represented at this FCC pro-Muslim/pro-NYC GROUND ZERO Mosque rally in Stamford, for instance. 
     One of the countries 'reresented' is Pakistan.  You hardly need a tutorial on US-Pakistani relations, but the recent massive flooding has prompted many of us in the faith community to appeal for 'the prayers of all peoples'.  One cannot be considered to be a sentient human being without being gut-wrenchingly affected by suffering and human tragedy on such a level. (Good timing, this, as we reflect upon the anniversary of the U.S.'s own Hurricane Katrina)
     Yet-back to Pakistan-on the heels of numerous (mine included) public 'shout-outs' for prayer and assistance (I PUSHED for Uncle to send the Chinooks, 'politics be damned'!).  Then--as if God was exercising His rather Magnanimous Sense Of HUMOR...The Pakistani Taliban threatens that 'anyone attempting to supply aid will be killed or suppressed or whatever it is that Sharia law calls for in cases like that.
     For most Americans, well-intentioned as we are,  far too many aspects of militant Sharia-Compliant Islamic cultures defy understanding.  Supporting regimes and mentalities like this are simply anathema to the many of us in the 'free world' today.  Yet, here we are with this spate of 'pro-Muslim/pro NYC Ground Zero Mosque' rallies, with more to come, and all I can do is ask, "WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON?"
     Anyone who can, please let me know.  Best of all, I'd like to hear one of the participants referred to here OPEN UP and let us know what their real agenda is.
Midhat H. Syed, Partner, Murtha Cullina
Midhat advises clients in corporate and cross border transactions, particularly in emerging markets of the Middle East and South Asia. He serves as co-chair of the firm’s Islamic Finance and Investment Group. Mr. Syed’s Islamic Finance practice involves assisting and advising institutions and entities with respect to Shari’ah (Islamic Law) compliant transactions in the realm of private equity investments, real estate finance, mergers & acquisitions, strategic investments and joint ventures, and investment funds.
His domestic corporate practice includes advising and assisting small to mid size companies with entrepreneurial spirit. In this realm, he focuses on company formations, private equity, venture capital and angel funding, private placements, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, corporate restructuring, business planning, asset transfers and corporate and operational compliance matters. He has closely worked with clients in the food, franchising, media and retail industries.
Mr. Syed has extensive experience in advising and assisting IT companies, Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) service providers and customers specifically with respect to Master Services Agreements (MSA), emerging technology companies, and business consulting firms. With a diversified cultural background, attorney Syed has developed a keen understanding and sensitivity for servicing the needs of Muslim clients.
     Please, someone, what's going on?  If Pastor Cari Jackson, the Interfaith Council, Reverend Katie Heichler, Rabbi Josh Hammerman, et. al. are so 'up' with human rights (especially with those of ever-oppressed womankind), they MUST have some kind of 'deal' going with Midhat Syed, Esq. and his Sharia law practice.  I, for one, had NO IDEA that Shari'a law was so very FLEXIBLE and TOLERANT of Christians and Jews and our 'USA legal system', did you?  Is this a different kind of Sharia law from the one we hear about in the news? 
       I always thought that Sharia law is above all a 'religious code' which supersedes any and all other codes of law, both religious and secular.  I applaud Rev. Cari's open mindedness in embracing Sharia law even if it does seem kind of odd considering that she is a female.  Oh, the times are a-changing.
     Here's some good 'reading' for you:
Isam Salah, partner, King & Spalding, LLP, on Islamic financial markets during the current financial crisis;
Mahmoud El-Gamal, professor, Rice University, on assessing the extent to which Islamic financial products match their ideals;
Oliver Agha, partner, Agha & Shamsi, Inc., on the fundamental concepts and practices of Islamic finance;
Midhat Syed, partner, Murtha Cullina, on challenges and solutions to striking shari’a-compliant private equity deals in the U.S.;
Mercy Kuo, senior project director, National Bureau of Asian Research, on unique features of the practice of Islamic finance in Southeast Asia;
Ibrahim Warde, adjunct professor, Tufts University, on Islamic finance and the U.S. “financial war on terror;”
April Rinne, director of venture development, Unitus Investment Group, on deployment of microfinance programs in Muslim-majority countries.
http://muslim-investor.com/conference/2nd-annual-uc-berkeley-islamic-finance-sympoisum.html  
     I had no idea that Sharia law was EVEN PRACTICED in Stamford, let alone that it's world-renowned global practitioners are so very OPEN-MINDED of others who are 'different' in our little city of Stamford.  I applaud that! 
    It is good to see that two female Christians can be hosts and ring-leaders to devout Sharia-compliant Muslim men allowing them to plight their cases on church property.  THIS is the kind of religious cooperation I have longed to see for so long!
     Still, I am NO FAN of the NYC Ground Zero Mosque and the way everything related to it is being so manipulative and convoluted and downright insensitive to all who suffered as a result of the terrorism of September 11, 2001.  It ought to be a simple thing to answer any and all questions regarding any mosque building if one is WILLING TO DO SO in a spirit of OPENNESS and HONESTY, no?.
Rev. Katie Heichler & Faisal Quadri (Qadri) http://www.thehour.com/story/478745
     And unlike Pastors Jackson and Heichler and Lingle, I am no fan of Sharia law, especially as  it regards and treats women and the disenfranchised, not to mention non-Muslims. 
Muslim women at the prayer vigil wrapped up good and warm head-to-toe against that awful 'August cold'

 Frankly, what they all recently PROMOTED FROM THOSE CHURCH STEPS  reminds me a little too much of the old 'witchhunting days' of some 365 +/- YEARS AGO.

Rev. Katie Heichler & Faisal Quadri (Qadri) 

     The August 24, 2010 pro-Muslim/pro-NYC Ground Zero Mosque 'prayer vigil' also reminds me of how just how much some people would like to wipe ISRAEL and all JEWS off the face of the map. 
     I don't know..maybe someone can better 'educate me' about Sharia law as it is practiced in Stamford these days, especially since it's proponents are preaching on MY once-beloved church steps.  If this is an effort to make America fully SHARIA-COMPLIANT as many other countries are, I sure would like to know about it. 
     I wish the Stamford Advocate or someone would interview the Muslim Sharia law advocates here in Southwestern CT and have them tell us directly just how well we can all get along as citizens of the United States of America.   I say 'citizens' for I simply cannot believe that the Reverend Dr. Cari Jackson would allow anyone BUT legal American citizens (or those here legally with appropriate paperwork) to preach as they have....would she?
     Anyway, if there's a change in the wind, I WELCOME IT.  I look at even 'neutrally-minded' countries like Switzerland banning the building of 'Muslim minarets' because of the unrest that they propagate and wonder how such a 'minor thing as that' can mean so much to non-Muslims.
     I'm hopeful--but I'm not holding my breath--that any of the goings-on at FCC Stamford will be explained to us soon and the issues I raise addressed. 
     But considering that the FCC Stamford is a UCC (United Church of Christ) which brought us Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Reverend Otis Moss, Father Pfleger and their attendant intolerant philosophies, I really shouldn't be surprised at ANYTHING, at all, being promoted in those hallowed halls or on their weathered steps.
     Now more from Midhat H. Syed, Shariah-lawyer-in-residence Stamford, CT:

 "Spiritual Economics
Recession and depression, falling stock prices and soaring unemployment rates foreclosures and bankruptcies, – the grave economic crisis that our nation faces brings with it little good news. The Survey of Professional Forecasters, the oldest quarterly survey of macroeconomic forecasts in the United States, tells us we are in for more of the same. Released in May 2009, the survey’s projections indicate higher job loss numbers and continued contraction of economic activity.
Such gloom and doom threatens more than our financial stability. Houses of worship are reporting a decrease in donations. The American Heart Association sent a news release in May 2009 outlining how the economic downturn, unemployment and money losses are impacting people’s ability to take care of their health. Canceling gym memberships, skipping dental examinations and scrimping on fresh fruits and vegetables are some of the changes people are making to accommodate the bad economy, perhaps not realizing the negative effects on their health. Additionally, crisis hotlines, suicide prevention and counseling call centers report a dramatic increase in traffic as economic stress exacerbates mental and emotional stress. In spring of 2009 one such outlet, the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, reported a call increase of more than 100% compared to the same time last year.

While none of us might be calling suicide hotlines, nor have most of us lost billions in investments, many of us are feeling a pinch in some areas of our lives. Such discomfort might make us wonder what will prevent further deterioration and stem more negative repercussions. As Muslims, we turn to our spirituality and religion for answers. Here we find we have certain benefits. “One of the clear advantages to the Islamic perspective is the concept of being people of the middle path,” said Charles Faisel Whatley, a Muslim economist. Mr. Whatley is the Director of Commerce and Entrepreneurship at the Atlanta Development Authority, the economic development agent implementing Mayor Shirley Franklin’s New Century Economic Development Plan for the City of Atlanta. He explains, “We don’t go to extremes. Most of the upheaval in the global market has resulted from taking financial products to their tipping points and stretching the financial system to its limits.”
To make it clear to those of us who are stretched by certain economic concepts, Mr. Whatley uses the example of farmland. “It is as if you took a 100-acre plot and tried to plant on it the same amount of food as for a 1,000 acre plot. There is a physical limit to an economic system. Islam recognizes the limits of man and the limits of our resources, and provides balance between them. It makes the economic actor realize profit cannot be the only motive.

As the combined profits for the big five oil companies reached $123 billion in 2007 and $100 billion in 2008 while drivers were paying record prices at the pump, some consumers questioned the ethics of such high profits. Mr. Whatley notes that while profit is lawful in Islam, there is more than one bottom line. “There are four bottom lines – financial profit, the social impact, the environmental impact and the spiritual bottom line. So there must be a balance among them, and you don’t let the monetary gain overshadow other components.”

The spiritual bottom line is important to Muslims as they seek to invest their money or purchase a home. Attorney Midhat H. Syed, a partner and co-chair of the Islamic Finance and Investments division at the Connecticut-based law firm of Murtha Cullina LLP, reviews contracts and documents sales for Islamic financial institutions and individuals who wish to ensure that their transactions are Shari’ah-compliant. He says, “The concepts promoted and adopted by Shari’ah are equity and fairness. The Shari’ah laws are deeply rooted in those concepts.” Explaining the guidelines, Mr. Syed states that social conscious investing prohibits investments in industries such as alcohol, pornography and gambling, and that Islamic finance principles prohibit ribaa, interest; gharar, excessive uncertainty and maysir, speculation. “In a Shari’ah-compliant transaction,” the risk is shared in all aspects – credit, market and operations,” Mr. Syed concludes. Additionally, Islamic transactions must be based in reality. Derivatives, hedge funds and financial instruments, based on pure speculation, allow the financier a long reach. Because they are not tied to any tangible commodity, they violate the Islamic requirements of freedom from excessive uncertainty and speculation. “The main reason for the economic downturn and the financial crunch is that every dollar has been stretched many times,” observes Mr. Syed."

     So... there you have it.  I sure wish someone would just be HONEST enough to let us all know what's REALLY up with this 'pro-Muslim prayer vigil' initiative.  Any way you look at it, combining religion with politics, money and sex always ends up with something that stinks.  At the very least, I sure would like a statement of clarification from the Shari'ah lawyers among us as they push for the building of mosques here and there in the "Land of the Free & Home of the Brave".
     It should be interesting to see how all this plays out for us all in the US as terrorist threaten us, as our economy fails and as the voters flounder due to lack of confidence in our leaders. 
     All I ask is, "Where is the TRANSPARENCY with these out-spoken Muslims and their supporters in light of this MOSQUE DEBATE?  So far, I'm not seeing any.
     As a country, we can be better than this.

'FCC Stamford 'Prayer Vigil' Rallies For NYC Mosque!' By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

     This very day I wrote a piece  about an August 24, 2010 'Interfaith Prayer Vigil' at FCC Stamford on Walton Place: http://dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2010/08/fcc-stamford-goes-pro-muslim-by.html  in support of Muslim communities in the Stamford area and Southwestern CT. 
     Naturally I questioned  whether or not the 'purpose' of this 'prayer vigil' was actually a 'front' to promote the building of the NYC Ground Zero Mosque.   I just HAD to ask since this August 24, 2010 event is slated to be held at 'my old church', now under the tutelage of one Rev. Dr. Cari (Carrietta aka Carrie) Jackson.  Curious minds are, well, you know, curious!
     The 'blurbs' I came across today about the 'prayer vigil' in the Stamford Advocate and on the Interfaith Council of Southwestern CT website http://www.interfaithcouncil.org/  were rather 'innocuous-sounding', such as follows:
"Tuesday, August 24th, 2010 6:30 p.m. Interfaith Prayer Vigil in support of Muslim communities in Fairfield County, on the grounds of First Congregational Church, 1 Walton Place, Bedford Street, Stamford. All are welcome to gather peacefully with members of our Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh communities - and people of other religions who choose to join in - to lift voices in prayer for peace, respect and collaborative ministry in the Stamford area and Southwestern Connecticut. For more information contact Kate Heichler (kateheichler@gmail.com ) or Mark Lingle (marklingle.pastor@gmail.com )."
     NO SOONER did I publish my little piece about this 'pro-Muslim prayer vigil set for August 24, 2010 in my 'beautiful' former 'Pilgrim Church of Stamford', than a certain 'MOTHER LODE' of information was brought to my attention!  Can't you give a girl a BREAK?
     That mother lode comes in the form of an interesting propaganda 'piece' penned by one profile-less FAISAL QUADRI  (quad...@richmancapital.com ) under a 'Google Group' called 'Sunday Cricket'. 
     I don't know WHO or WHAT this Faisal is, but he or she sure answered my questions and let the cat out of the bag.  The full body of his/her posting is below in small print, but suffice it to say that KATIE, I'VE GOT A REALLY IMPORTANT QUESTION FOR YOU. 
     Let me ask you once and for all:
IS THE PURPOSE OF YOUR INTERFAITH COUNCIL OF SOUTHWESTERN CT PRAYER VIGIL FOR MUSLIMS IN STAMFORD AND FAIRFIELD COUNTRY REALLY ONLY TO LEND AID AND SUPPORT TO MUSLIMS OR DO YOU GO SO FAR AS TO USE YOUR POSITION AS DIRECTOR OF THE INTERFAITH COUNCIL TO FURTHER THE CAUSE OF GETTING THAT NYC GROUND ZERO 9/11 MOSQUE BUILT?
     We ALL want to know and more than that, we here in Fairfield County DESERVE to know.  Personally, I don't have much respect for those who use their status as 'clergy' to further their political and fiduciary aspirations without regard for the ones they serve (God first and people second).  At least honestly represent your people, you know?  Is it possible, Katie, that you are SO caught up in  'progressive-lib Dem politics' and have such a great need for notoriety and funding that you may have bitten off more than you can chew?

If so, speak up Katie.  We will understand.  But just don't expect that 'your flock' are stupid guppies too cowed by 'political correctness' who won't ask questions.  And certainly don't think that the good peoples of Stamford--the 'good Muslims', the Jews, the Christians, the Hindus, the Buddhists, the Sikhs and the many agnostics and atheists ARE FOOLISH ENOUGH to buy into false politico-religious propaganda, questions unasked.  We happen to be a bright, thinking, educated, sentient group here, as a matter of fact.  And I am ever-leery of the crossing of the line between 'church and state' as a survivor of and witness to the UCC politics which helped get our current President elected!

So answer up, Katie Heichler of http://www.interfaithcouncil.org who is working closely with Rev. Cari Jackson http://www.facebook.com/people/Cari-Jackson/520216546  and  at The First Congregational Church of Stamford fccstamford@gmail.com

Katie, you've both already been 'OUTTED' by Faisal Quadri (quad...@richmancapital.com ), so why don't you just 'come clean' about the true motives behind the August 24 'Pro-Muslim Prayer Vigil at FCC Stamford'? Faisal's diatribe is below:

Faisal Quadri (quad...@richmancapital.com ) says: "The InterFaith Council of Southwestern Connecticut; Christian, Muslim and Jewish is organizing a prayer/vigil for the Muslims of Fairfield County due to the opposition being faced in regards to the ground zero masjid, Norwalk masjid plans, as well as recent incident at the Bridgeport Masjid (see below).
It will be on Tuesday, August 24th, 6:30 p.m. at the Grounds of First Congregational Church (1 Walton Place at Bedford Street, Stamford)."

When: Tuesday, August 24, 2010 6:30 PM-7:00 PM (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada).
Where: Grounds of First Congregational Church (1 Walton Place at Bedford Street, Stamford)
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Assalaamualaikum All,
The InterFaith Council of Southwestern Connecticut; Christian, Muslim and Jewish is organizing a prayer/vigil for the Muslims of Fairfield County due to the opposition being faced in regards to the ground zero masjid, Norwalk masjid plans, as well as recent incident at the Bridgeport Masjid (see below).

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Kate Heichler, 203-415-1962 or kateheich...@gmail.com
Mark Lingle, 203-570-6226, marklingle.pas...@gmail.com
WHAT: Interfaith Prayer Vigil in support of Muslim communities in Fairfield County.
WHEN: Tuesday, August 24th, 6:30 p.m.
WHERE: Grounds of First Congregational Church
1 Walton Place at Bedford Street, Stamford
WHO: InterFaith Council of Southwestern Connecticut; Christian, Muslim and Jewish
communities
WHY: Tension and rhetoric has been increasing over the basic and peaceful religious practice of Muslims in Bridgeport, whose worship service was protested by a group of Christian fundamentalists on August 6th. (See press coverage, including the Connecticut Post http://www.ctpost.com/news/article/Angry-protesters-descend-on-mosque...). At the same time, other events - the obstacles to building a mosque on Fillow Street in Norwalk; with the controversy growing over the Cordoba Initiative's efforts to build a Muslim community center near Ground Zero (Muslim Community Center near Ground Zero) are calling our attention to the fact that our Muslim brothers and sisters in Stamford feel threatened and isolated.
The InterFaith Council has a long history of tolerance and support for the diverse religious expressions found within the communities of southwestern Fairfield County, and seek to build understanding among the various traditions. Its president, the Rev. Kate Heichler says, "The recent actions by a Christian fundamentalist group against the Masjid An-Noor mosque in Bridgeport compel us take a public stand against religious intolerance and hatred here in Fairfield County, in New York City, and wherever it rears its head."
All are welcome to gather peacefully with members of our Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh communities - and people of other religions who choose to join in - to lift voices in prayer for peace, respect and collaborative ministry in the Stamford area and Southwestern Connecticut. For more information contact Kate Heichler (kateheich...@gmail.com) or Mark Lingle (marklingle.pas...@gmail.com).

ARE YOU or AREN'T YOU going to use this prayer vigil to promote the NYC Ground Zero Mosque, Katie and Cari and all you 'Interfaith' people?  Just tell us 'yes' or 'no'. 

Those of us in Stamford and environs deserve to know.  Many from up here lost loved ones down there--please remember this, so we'd appreciate 'an answer'.

And don't expect to extract donations from the good people of this area if you are not prepared to be 'forthcoming' with your intentions...both those obvious and those not so obvious.

Thank you and GOD BLESS YOU for an honest and prompt answer, 
Reverend Barbara Sexton

'FCC Stamford Goes Pro-Muslim' By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

"TWO FACES"
     Recently on FACEBOOK, I made some comments on the JEWISH TEA PARTY site regarding the role of The First Congregational Church back on September, 11, 2001. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000919424310#!/group.php?gid=114115391933221&ref=ts  I publish them below in their entirety for those who are interested, including 'the remnant of members' of that of the very church, also known as 'FCC Stamford'.
     FCC Stamford is a UCC (United Church of Christ aka the 'Obama/Wright' church) http://www.fccstamford.org/   http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000919424310#!/fccstamford?v=wall&ref=ts  and is also known as the 'Pilgrim church'.
     I was and am still a member there, though I no longer have any affinity for it and that all thanks to Synod 2007 http://dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/search/label/Synod%202007     I used to be so proud of that place--the good type of 'proud', that is. We held close to Christian tenets, did good outreach, were 'colorful and diverse' and it all worked! Nowadays, the place has been commandeered by a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered (LGBT) mentality melded with Black Liberation Theology.  And, it seems, the FCC Stamford will now host a prayer vigil 'in support of Muslim communities' on August 24 http://www.interfaithcouncil.org/
UPDATE: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/12/samuel-l-jackson-obama-vote-black_n_1271797.html 
     Call me skeptical, but I believe this 'prayer vigil' is no more than a latest foray into the NYC/anti-Muslim mosque debate.  It may just put FCC Stamford and the Interfaith Council right back on the map if they 'front' this mosque project. FCC Stamford is pro-Palestine and pro-Muslim and totally suited to the job. I can't say for sure what is going on with the 'Interfaith Council of Southwestern CT' and where they stand, except to say that that Council has died over the years and could sure use this 'picker-upper' event.  Money's tight, you know.
     Not many of the characters related to this upcoming 'prayer vigil'--from the FCC Stamford, anyway--have much, if any,  first-responder, hands-on experience going back to that fateful day on September 11, 2001.  Indeed, many of them were no where near Stamford at the time--facts unfortunate considering that their upcoming activities will have them performing as if they actually knew anything about what happened that cruel September day in the pipeline between Stamford and NYC and surrounding communities.
      So I thought it might be useful for these Muslim supporters to read about what DID happen in Stamford that day, in one area of the religious community, at least.  Perhaps it will help them to have some basis of understanding when they DO get all wrapped up in promoting the NYC Ground ZERO mosque.  Perhaps they may even be impelled to consider the feelings of 'everyday' Jews and Christians who suffered loss and destruction as a result of 'September 11', but I won't hold my breath.
     I also won't hold my breath for any Muslim groups to hold prayer vigils in support of Jewish communities, because we know that that just won't happen, and if it does, someone please fill me in.
     So, now 'the church that got President Obama elected' ( FCC Stamford/the UCC) is going to 'get that Ground Zero Mosque built'? Is that the true purpose of this upcoming August 24 vigil?  If this vigil is in response to some evangelical shenanigans by a 'few', why not hold this pro-Muslim vigil in Bridgeport?  And why not hold pro-Jewish and pro-Christian vigils for those 'hurt by' fringe Muslims, also, oh Interfaith Council Crew?  Have you done that?  Are you doing that? Will you do that?
     I know I'm talking to air, but I do hope that if nothing else, we'll at least hear some 'moderate' or 'good' Muslims speak up, here in Stamford or elsewhere, finally, and not just one of their 'funds-seeking' apologists.  One can only hope. That in itself is worth the price of renting out that FCC sanctuary to anyone at all who can come up with the scratch and is of the right socio-religious 'bent'.  I just hope that the news media can get the 'good Muslims' on the record for all of us to read about.
     Christel Truglia, Andrew McDonald and George Jepson have  been 'regulars' at FCC Stamford ', so that you readers can get a flavor for what kind of progressive-lib dem atmosphere wafts through there.  It's a perfect place for what is about to transpire.
     Now, without further adieu, here's my 9/11/01 Jewish Tea Party narrative BELOW: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000919424310#!/group.php?gid=114115391933221&ref=ts  The question was asked: "Where's outrage from Muslim leaders?" (regarding the NYC Mosque)
CapeCodOnline.com www.capecodonline.com
We hear a great deal about remembering that the United States is not in a war against those who practice Islam. It is less clear if some who practice Islam try to remember that as well.
Rev. Barb's answer:
     "I have a partial answer for you. Prior to Sept. 11, 2001, there was some interaction between Christianity/Judaism/Islam on a local level with the (then) 'Interfaith Council'. The truth is, a few of us did small-scale work--for me it was interacting with the 'Christian-Muslims' who frequented my church (FCC Stamford). After 9/11, ALL of such interaction CEASED.
After 9/11, vandalism of local Temples was met by those of us who 'cared' by getting involved with defending the Jewish community in solidarity. However, the security involved (like mirror-checks, etc at the Stamford JCC) intimidated many Christians and their clergy. They were scared, basically. The Muslim community was ABSENT and SILENT when Temples/Synagogues were vandalized.
     Finally, I asked my Sr. Pastor Gary Brown (who eventually headed the Council of Churches & Synagogues aka The Interfaith Council of SE CT in one of it's 'incarnations') what his take was as to 'why no one from the Muslim community attended meetings and/or did outreach?' I kept pestering him to show me just ONE EXAMPLE of 'the good Muslims' coming forth to decry events, but he could not.
     I tried some local outreach myself and met with failure to connect in any way. Finally, my Sr. Pastor told me, "They're (the Muslim Community) afraid and that's why they don't come out."
      AFRAID??? Hadn't we joined together in solidarity--the different faiths--to DEFEND each other in time of need? Rabbi Josh Hammerman sure thought so, if any of you know him. The "They're afraid to" comment fell on my deaf, disbelieving, disrespecting ears.
     I'll tell you about afraid: I saw F-16's flying over my Stamford church, I helped man triage staging between the train station (for the WTC 'walking wounded' who never came) & Stamford Hospital.
     I 'did' over two years of PTSD counseling for emergency personnel first responders in the area while suffering myself and I manned a church where people clustered, wept, prayed, waited and wondered that day and for months afterwards. Nary a Muslim that I am aware of stepped up in this city and pitched in that day or afterwards. (If they did, this is a good time to speak up about it now.)
     So I can tell you what 'AFRAID' is. I KNOW what humans can RALLY TO with faith in God and how we can work together. I never spoke of this publicly before-sorry if this is too much, but every word here is true and a good lesson for all of us everywhere and not just those of us so close to 'Ground Zero'.
Blessings to you,
Rev. Barbara Sexton

'Yes, Salmonella Can Be & Has Been Used As A Bioterrorism Weapon' By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

JellyMuffin.com - The place for profile layouts, flash generators, glitter graphics, backgrounds and codes
Graphics for Funny Picture Comments



     Yes, Salmonella species CAN and HAVE BEEN used as a weapon of bioterrorism.  Read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1984_Rajneeshee_bioterror_attack
     Now is a good time, also, to bookmark this CDC Salmonella page for future reference:  http://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/outbreaks.html
     I am NOT implying that the current Salmonella enteritidis outbreak in shell eggs is anything but a natural occurrence.
     But if it is, you can rest assured that the genetics of 'the bugs' under scrutiny will be identified and typed and the source determined.  But it is up to YOU to protect your health and that of your loved ones.  Do NOT expect anyone to be able to 'look out for you' completely, for that is impossible.
     In the meantime, stick with 'certified' 'tested' eggs from producers who can guarantee the claims they make about their products... if you're in 'the mood for eggs at this time', that is.  Be especially careful with food products that contain eggs, including pet foods, dressings, baked goods and the delicious ethnic foods we all love.
     It's not always so obvious about what does or does not contain eggs and it's worth taking the time to read labels.  Harder still is it to be sure that your restaurant fare is safe. 
     As ever, we are at the mercy and good faith of those who run our favorite eateries and their food suppliers, those who prepare our food and those who serve it.
     Food for thought in this day and age of superbugs, abysmal and cruel animal 'farming' practices and the evils of  bio terrorism.
God Bless You and God Bless America

'Major Egg Recall Per FDA, CDC, etc. Due To Salmonella in USA' By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

http://rockinthestove.com/2009/07/05/incredible-edible-and-local-eggs/
Dear Readers:
      Not long ago, I alerted you to the plethora of Salmonella-laden MICE and CHICKS intended as food for reptiles.  I alerted you to the important implications that (and all similar Salmonella outbreaks in any animal species) has for HUMAN food and food products...and for all of us.
LINK: http://dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2010/08/fda-warns-of-salmonella-risk-from.html
     Recent news indicates that there is a major recall of chicken EGGS due to gross Salmonella contamination. Wright County Egg of Galt, Iowa conducted a nationwide voluntary recall of shell eggs.  LINK: http://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/enteritidis/       Some 228 million eggs have been recalled due to this recent Salmonella recall and an ongoing investigation is being coordinated by the FDA, CDC, State and Local Depts. of Agriculture and others via an entity known as PulseNet.
      Be assured that although California, Colorado and Minnesota are mentioned, other states must be on alert as well.  Chicken 'farmers' get their 'stock eggs and birds' from MAJOR suppliers and no doubt these distributors are being investigated by the various agencies, too.  The eggs were distributed around the country and packaged under the names Lucerne, Albertson, Mountain Dairy, Ralph's, Boomsma's, Sunshine, Hillandale, Trafficanda, Farm Fresh, Shoreland, Lund, Dutch Farms and Kemp.
LINK: http://www.cdc.gov/pulsenet/whatis.htm  
     But don't be fooled by the numbers, for not all cases have been reported.
     Believe it or not, just as 'humans' can be identified by their DNA, so can eggs and egg-products be identified.  Epidemiologists use this technique to determine the source of and spread of various food-borne infectious agents...a kind of 'CSI' for pathogens.
      An overall perspective for the month of August 2010 can be found at the link below:
http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/PDF/wk/mm5931.pdf 
     The breaking news reads as:
"Salmonella Enteritidis Outbreak in Shell Eggs
FDA is collaborating with Federal and state partners to investigate a nationwide increase of Salmonella Enteritidis (SE) infections. Partners include the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and state public health and agriculture officials. Joint FDA/CDC field investigation teams are working to identify potential sources of SE infection in shell eggs."
And here is where you can read more:
www.fda.gov/Food/NewsEvents/WhatsNewinFood/ucm222684.htm
      The usual number of EGGS causing Salmonella illness is up a full FOUR-FOLD for a few months now in certain regions.  This means that we need to be careful with what we eat!
Since May 2010, CDC has identified a nationwide, four-fold increase in the number of SE isolates through PulseNet, the national sub typing network made up of state and local public health laboratories and federal food regulatory laboratories. CDC received reports of approximately 200 SE cases every week during late June and early July. Normally, CDC has received an average of some 50 reports of SE illness each week for the past five years. Many states have also reported increases of this pattern since May 2010.
LINK: (SAME AS ABOVE)  http://www.fda.gov/Food/NewsEvents/WhatsNewinFood/ucm222684.htm   
     Reverend Barb's advice for YOU!:
  1. ADVOCATE FOR HUMANE POULTRY  FARMING and persuade producers to treat their birds well, which by definition means caring for their health and well-being, thus producing a better product for YOU!
  2. ONLY BUY EGGS FROM PRODUCERS WHO ENGAGE IN  SUCH HUMANE POULTRY FARMING.
  3. EXPECT TO PAY A BIT EXTRA FOR THE ABOVE...Well worth it if you value the health of yourself and your families, as well as the health and well-being of God's creatures.
  4. INSPECT YOUR EGGS.  Any that are cracked, chipped, broken, off-color or look or smell odd should be placed in a small plastic bag and discarded in the trash.  Do NOT feed suspect eggs to 'pets' or wildlife.  Do NOT COMPOST suspect eggs.  Salmonella thrives in such an environment.  If you know for certain that you have infected eggs, follow the instructions here: http://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/enteritidis/
  5. CHECK here frequently for Salmonella updates and request my FREE NEWSLETTER in order to get the latest in significant health-related news: mail request to:  BarbaraKSexton@aol.com  
  6. CHECK these LINKS yourself to stay up-to-date: http://www.fda.gov/   www.cdc.gov  http://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/baildon-hartford/  
God Bless You & Your Loved Ones!
