"McNeil's Quality Control 'STINKS' As Much As Its Tylenol Products Do" By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"



Dear Ones:
     For a while now, we've been observing various problems with the McNeil company and their 'Tylenol', 'Benadryl', 'Zyrtec' and other brand lines.
     'Dust' in the facility, lacking or insufficient testing protocols, 'particulate matter' in their liquid products, 'off and moldy smelling products', 'superpotent' drugs, drugs with 'inactives' which haven't been properly tested, the use of raw materials known to be contaminated with gram negative bacteria...

LINK:  www.dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2010/05/mcneil-tylenol-motrin-zyrtec-benadryl.html 

     The list of poor or lacking quality controls and assurances from McNeils goes on and on.
LINK: www.tylenol.com/page.jhtml?id=tylenol/news/main.inc

     Likewise "Good Manufacturing Practices' is something this company just cannot seem to wrap it's 'corporate culture' around and we are left to wonder why.
     Do they truly care so little for the consumer and so much for the almighty dollar that they consistently fail to assure us that their products are safe to use?
     We'll not find the answer at this time, but instead turn to a discussion of this 'stinky tablet' problem.
     In a sentence, 'skids' (also known as 'pallets') are wooden platforms upon which cases of 'finished product' are stacked prior to bulk 'shrinkwrapping'.
     The skids are picked up by fork-lifts and carried into large trucks for shipping all over the place.
     Skids can be made of either wood (the traditional way) or of compressed, molded recyclable plastic.
     Naturally, the 'wood ones' require some kind of preservative, as all wood does, in order that the wood maintain it's integrity and, therefore, it's strength.  The way to do this is to apply a suitable fungicide to the skids at the place they are manufactured.
     Fully loaded skids are heavy indeed.  If a skid 'collapses', it must be unloaded in place, which can be both a nuisance, and which can be dangerous if it blocks the flow of floor traffic.
     But the real danger is that it can cause it's load's center-of-balance to shift, thus causing it to become 'top-heavy' and come tumbling down, Heaven forbid, on a hapless warehouse worker or materials handler or passer-by!
     I mention this in order to emphasize how important it is to maintain 'good warehousing practices' at all times.
     The substance generally used for 'skids' is a stinky chemical known as TBA, which stands for 2,4,6-tribromoanisole.
     The best description I can give of it is that it smells like 'concentrated essence of vomit'  topped off with a good dollop of 'eau de dirty underwear'.
     Anyone familiar with warehouses knows how unpleasant it is to get a shipment of ANYTHING on 'new skids' in house.  You've got to keep the bay doors open and fans going in order to get that stink out...and it takes weeks, if not longer, for the smell to ever settle down.
     In fact, the most popular 'game played' is to get those 'new skids' out the shipping door as fast as possible so that some OTHER warehouse can have them while they 'age into respectability of smell'...not that anyone will actually admit they do this!
     Temperature is a factor, of course.  In the summer, it can get really bad in a non-temperature controlled facility with those stinky skids, on loading docks and in hot trucks.
     And the heat makes it all the more likely that anything placed on those skids will absorb the 'off odor' like crazy.
     Add to that that the packaging materials used (primarily plastic and paper) for most drugs and pharmaceuticals ALSO absorb 'off odors' easily.  AND on top of that, the 'final packaging' often involves heat processes (i.e. safety seals and shrink wrapping of all sorts) and you can imagine that you can have a real 'stinker' on your hands.
     And, wait, there's more!
      In certain instances, jars/bottles of non-tableted drugs and cosmetics are bottled or put in jars while still warm, which only prolongs the 'cool-down' period, and then you have real potential for the consumer to have a very unpleasant surprise when they finally open up their package.
     No doubt, the 'musty/moldy' odor in the Extra Strength Tylenol Caplets below came to be as a result of what I have just discussed above.  McNeil is no different than any other manufacturer when it comes to dealing with such issues.
     It is not uncommon to have to DEAL WITH odor issues, but it is UNACCEPTABLE to put such affected product out to market!
     And any concern who swears they 'didn't realize they had a problem'...needs to have their 'noses' examined!
     You will be told that, (although the odor is offensive) "the risk of serious adverse medical events is remote".
     This is true, although the TBA (2,4,6-tribromoanisole) itself most certainly is NOT.
     This benzene derivative is toxic and carcinogenic in the quantities skid manufacturers, chemists and others are likey to be exposed to.
     And a hot warehouse-full of smelly skids can definitely make one sick to one's stomach, as well as producing respiratory issues for those exposed to such a stench.
     That the McNeil people continue to have these 'off-odor' problems on top of all their other Q.C./Q.A. issues only reveals an entity that is NOT vitally concerned about the health and well-being of their customers...let alone their poor employees.
May God Bless & Keep You All

"CDC Epidemiological Data On Evergreen Produce Brand Alfalfa & Spicy Sprouts Contaminated With Salmonella Distributed In ID, WA, MN, ND & NJ" By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"



Persons infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Enteritidis, by state 
Case Count Map, Above  LINK: www.cdc.gov/salmonella/sprouts-enteritidis0611/062611/index.html 

Dear Ones:
     This article is a follow-up to the one I wrote earlier today on the same subject from the point-of-view of the FDA.
LINK: www.dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2011/06/fda-dont-eat-evergreen-produce-brand.html
     The Centers For Disease Control is working with the Food And Drug Administration to get to the bottom of this latest Salmonella 'food-poisoning' situation.
     Below is the epidemiological data for the Evergreen Produce Brand alfalfa and spicy sprouts implicated in a Multistate outbreak of human Salmonella Enteritidis.
     Per the CDC "As of June 27, 2011, a total of 21 persons with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Enteritidis have been reported from 5 states: Idaho (3), Montana (7), North Dakota (1), New Jersey (1) and Washington (9)." 
 LINK:  www.cdc.gov/salmonella/sprouts-enteritidis0611/062611/index.html
     Also per the CDC: "Among persons for whom information is available, illnesses began between April 12 and June 7, 2011. Ill persons range in age from 12 years to 77 years old, with a median age of 35 years old. Seventy-one percent are female. Among the 10 ill persons with available information, 3 (30%) persons have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported."
LINK:  www.cdc.gov/salmonella/sprouts-enteritidis0611/062611/index.html
     Here are the things readers need to bear in mind:
--just because a state in not listed does not mean that the contaminated sprouts were not distributed there.
--The sprout grower is refusing to comply with a call from the FDA to RECALL their products, so the consumer must be sure to avoid eating Evergreen Produce Brand alfalfa and spicy sprouts.
--This sprout contaminating 'pathogen' is a totally different one form the one we've been reading about in Europe.  The only similarity, in fact, appears to be the fact that in both this outbreak and in the European Sprouts outbreak, a preponderance of the victims are female.
--There have been no DEATHS for this outbreak known to date.

Investigation Announcement: Multistate Outbreak of Human Salmonella Enteritidis Infections Linked to Alfalfa Sprouts and Spicy Sprouts


June 28, 2011
On this Page

Persons infected with the laboratory strain of Salmonella Enteritidis, by known or estimated onset date


 

 

Introduction

CDC is collaborating with public health officials in many states and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to investigate a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis infections linked to alfalfa sprouts and spicy sprouts. There is no connection between this Salmonella outbreak and the European E. coli O104:H4 outbreak. Investigators are using DNA analysis of Salmonella bacteria obtained through diagnostic testing to identify cases of illness that may be part of this outbreak.


As of June 27, 2011, a total of 21 persons with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Enteritidis have been reported from 5 states: Idaho (3), Montana (7), North Dakota (1), New Jersey (1) and Washington (9). Among persons for whom information is available, illnesses began between April 12 and June 7, 2011. Ill persons range in age from 12 years to 77 years old, with a median age of 35 years old. Seventy-one percent are female. Among the 10 ill persons with available information, 3 (30%) persons have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.

The outbreak can be visually described with a chart showing the number of people who became ill each day. This chart is called an epidemic curve or epi curve. Illnesses that occurred after June 9, 2011, might not be reported yet due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported. This takes an average of 2 to 3 weeks. For more information, please see Salmonella Outbreak Investigations: Timeline for Reporting Cases.


Investigation of the Outbreak


Collaborative investigative efforts of local, state, and federal public health and regulatory agencies have linked this outbreak to Evergreen Produce brand alfalfa sprouts and spicy sprouts. The sprouts were distributed to various customers in Idaho, Montana, Washington State, and possibly to retailers in neighboring states. CDC, FDA, and state and local public health partners are continuing surveillance to identify new cases and trace potentially contaminated products. CDC will continue to update the public on the progress of this investigation as information becomes available.


Clinical Features/Signs and Symptoms


Most persons infected with Salmonella bacteria develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most persons recover without treatment. However, in some persons, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the bloodstream, and then to other body sites and can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics. The elderly, infants and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness from Salmonella infection. More general information about Salmonella can be found here.


Sprouts and Foodborne Illness


Since 1996, there have been at least 30 reported outbreaks of foodborne illness associated with different types of raw and lightly cooked sprouts. Most of these outbreaks were caused by Salmonella and E. coli infections.


Advice to Consumers and People who Sell or Serve Food


  • Contaminated product may still be in grocery stores and in consumers’ homes. The alfalfa sprouts and spicy sprouts are sold in plastic bags labeled “Evergreen Produce” or “Evergreen Produce Inc.” The alfalfa sprouts are packaged in 4-ounce and 16-ounce plastic bags with pre-printed labels. They are also packaged in 1-pound and 5-pound plastic bags with stick-on labels. The spicy sprouts are packaged in 4-ounce plastic bags with pre-printed labels and 1-pound plastic bags with stick-on labels.
  • Customers who purchased this product should return it to the place of purchase for a refund or dispose the sprouts in a closed plastic bag placed in a sealed trash can. This will prevent people or animals from eating them.
  • Persons who think they might have become ill from eating potentially contaminated sprouts should consult their health care providers.
  • Children, the elderly, pregnant women, and persons with weakened immune systems should avoid eating raw sprouts of any kind (including alfalfa, clover, radish, and mung bean sprouts).
  • Cook sprouts thoroughly to reduce the risk of illness. Cooking thoroughly kills the harmful bacteria.
  • Request that raw sprouts not be added to your food. If you purchase a sandwich or salad at a restaurant or delicatessen, check to make sure that raw sprouts have not been added.
  • More information about illnesses associated with sprouts can be found on Foodsafety.govExternal Web Site Icon.




CDC's Role in Food Safety


CDC leads federal efforts to gather data on foodborne illnesses, investigate foodborne outbreaks and monitor the effectiveness of prevention and control efforts. CDC is not a food safety regulatory agency but works closely with the food safety regulatory agencies, in particular, with FDA and U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. CDC also plays a key role in building state and local health department epidemiology, laboratory and environmental health capacity to support foodborne disease surveillance and outbreak response. Notably, CDC data can be used to help document the effectiveness of regulatory interventions.

"UPDATED July 20, 2011: FDA: Don't Eat EVERGREEN PRODUCE Brand Alfalfa & Spicy SPROUTS Contaminated With Salmonella Enteritidis in Idaho, Montana, New Jersey, North Dakota & Washington State" By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

UPDATE July 20, 2011 From Rev. Barb:
On July 1, 2011, Idaho-Evergreen Fresh Sprouts, LLC FINALLY initiated a 'voluntary recall' of its alfalfa and spicy sprouts.
 ------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Readers:
     It is always difficult to 'localize' food-borne illness outbreaks in 'real time'.
     Therefore, although the following alert at present applies 'only' to Idaho, Montana, New Jersey, North Dakota and Washington State, I urge residents of ALL STATES to take care and STAY AWAY FROM ALFALFA SPROUTS...for the time-being, anyway.
     Hydroponic gardening at it's inception was an innovative 'clean' way to cultivate many foods enjoyed by those concerned with maintaining their good health.
     But the big drawback to hydroponics is that by it's very nature, water tanks used for cultivation are VERY prone to all sorts of microbial contamination.
     In fact, anyone who has ever been engaged in and/or has been responsible for 'water quality/purity/safety' (as I have been in manufacturing plants, labs and certain medical settings) can tell you that WATER is a most gracious 'culture medium' for bad bacteria if ever there was one!
     It's very difficult to keep water in large quantities free of pathogens, especially in cases where a suitable 'preservative system' cannot be employed.
     The fact is that in the alfalfa & spicy sprout situation here, it is reasonable to suggest that the affected sprouts were contaminated at their point of origin.
     At least that's what the FDA believes, while Evergreen Produce begs to differ!
     With all due respect to the small Evergreen Produce company, there is only one way to go and that is to cooperate with the FDA and other federal authorities.  It is the company's 'moral and legal responsibility' to do so and I say this having had years of experience interacting with the FDA in industry.
     Evergreen Produce will have to explain what happened to the FDA and we will stay on top of this story.  Amazingly, the company (Evergreen) is refusing to accept responsibility and to initiate a recall, so for now, the consumer is on his and her own.
     If there ever were a time when the consumer must do the utmost to protect him and herself, this is it!
     It may seem to you that our foodstocks are reportedly becoming more and more contaminated with things like Salmonella, Listeria, and E. coli spp.  This is NOT your imagination.
     Indeed, over the years the occasional contamination situations have become rather endemic within certain food groups, with a high proportion of both poultry and vegetables being contaminated with Salmonella, for instance.
      It hardly matters how Salmonella 'infected' that first chicken (or that first egg?) and how it managed to invade vegetable cultivation to the person suffering from a bad case of Salmonellosis.
      Still, the study continues and we all must be cautious in our eating habits.
      Personally, I've enjoyed the refreshing taste of sprouts of all kinds, but between this FDA notice and the STEC O104:H4 (E. coli) contamination of sprouts in the EU (a totally different situation and different pathogen, by the way, as I will explain in my next article), I've 'lost my taste' for them...and I hope you have, too...for the time being, anyway, as I said above.
     Check here often and check the FDA 'sprouts link' also: www.foodsafety.gov/keep/types/fruits/sprouts.html
     Coming up shortly at www.DearOnesHealingMinistry.blogspot.com will be a companion piece to this one, where I will explain the specifics from the point-of-view of the CDC, who is also now involved in this alfalfa and spicy sprouts investigation.

FDA PRESS RELEASE  

LINK: http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm260836.htm

Update June 28, 2011: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are currently a total of 21 reported cases, including 3 hospitalizations, of Salmonella Enteritidis. More information can be found in the CDC press release.

For Immediate Release: June 27, 2011
Media Inquiries: Stephanie Yao, 301-796-0394, stephanie.yao@fda.hhs.gov
Consumer Inquiries: 888-INFO-FDA

FDA: Do not eat Evergreen Produce brand alfalfa sprouts or spicy sprouts
Sprouts may contain Salmonella Enteritidis; pathogen different from the one in European outbreak

Fast Facts
  • The FDA is warning consumers not to eat alfalfa sprouts or spicy sprouts from plastic bags labeled “Evergreen Produce” or “Evergreen Produce Inc.”
  • The sprouts are possibly linked to 20 reported cases, including one hospitalization, of Salmonella Enteritidis in Idaho, Montana, New Jersey, North Dakota and Washington State.
  • The elderly, infants and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness from Salmonella infection.
  • Consumers, retailers and others who have alfalfa sprouts or spicy sprouts in plastic bags labeled “Evergreen Produce” or “Evergreen Produce Inc.” should discard them in a sealed container so people and animals, including wild animals, cannot eat them.
What is the Problem? The FDA is advising consumers not to eat Evergreen Produce brand alfalfa sprouts and spicy sprouts. The sprouts are possibly linked to 20 reported cases, including one hospitalization, of Salmonella Enteritidis in Idaho, Montana, New Jersey, North Dakota and Washington State. The strain of S. Enteritidis is rarely seen at this frequency.
The pathogen associated with this outbreak is different from the pathogen associated with the outbreak in Europe.

What are the Symptoms of Illness/Injury?
Most persons infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most persons recover without treatment. However, some individuals may require hospitalization from severe diarrhea. Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the blood stream and then to other body sites. It can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics. The elderly, infants and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to become severely ill from Salmonella infection.

Who is at Risk?The elderly, infants and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to become severely ill from Salmonella infection. The bacterium can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in these vulnerable populations. Most healthy individuals recover from Salmonella infections within four to seven days without treatment.

What Do Consumers Need To Do? 
Consumers should not eat alfalfa sprouts or spicy sprouts from plastic bags labeled “Evergreen Produce” or “Evergreen Produce Inc.” Consumers, retailers and others who have sprouts in plastic bags labeled “Evergreen Produce” or “Evergreen Produce Inc.” should throw them away in a sealed container so people and animals, including wild animals, cannot eat them. 
Consumers who think they may have become ill from eating possibly contaminated sprouts should consult their health care providers.
Sprouts are a known source of foodborne illness. Since 1996, there have been at least 30 reported outbreaks of foodborne illness associated with different types of raw and lightly cooked sprouts. Most of these outbreaks were caused by Salmonella and E. coli. The FDA advises that children, the elderly, pregnant women, and persons with weakened immune systems should avoid eating raw sprouts of any kind (including alfalfa, clover, radish and mung bean sprouts). To reduce the chance of foodborne illness, FDA advises consumers to cook sprouts thoroughly and to request raw sprouts not be added to your food.

What Does the Product Look Like? The possibly contaminated alfalfa sprouts and spicy sprouts are sold in plastic bags labeled “Evergreen Produce” or “Evergreen Produce Inc.”
The alfalfa sprouts are packaged in 4-ounce and 16-ounce plastic bags with pre-printed labels. They are also packaged in 1-pound and 5-pound plastic bags with stick-on labels.
The spicy sprouts are packaged in 4-ounce plastic bags with pre-printed labels and 1-pound plastic bags with stick-on labels.

Where is it Distributed? To date, the FDA is aware of distribution in Idaho, Montana and Washington State. However, consumers and retailers in neighboring states should check the product label to ensure they are not eating or selling Evergreen Produce brand alfalfa sprouts or spicy sprouts.

What is Being Done about the Problem? FDA is investigating the problem in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health agencies in those states where illnesses have occurred. The investigation is ongoing. The FDA is also working with state authorities to take appropriate action to address any product that may be remaining on the market.

Who Should be Contacted?Consumers with questions about sprout safety should contact 1-800-SAFEFOOD.
The information in this press release reflects the FDA’s best efforts to communicate what it has learned from the manufacturer and the state and local public health agencies involved in the investigation. The agency will update this page as more information becomes available.

"Nestlé Purina Dry Cat Food Bags Contaminated With Salmonella Shipped To Colorado, Idaho and Oregon" By Reverend Barbara Sexton "The Biblical Biochemist-Where Science Meets the Cross"

Sox and Sam-Healthy, Affectionate & Gentle brothers!
Available for adoption from Friends of Felines LINK: www.adoptapet.org
Dear Fellow Pet-Lovers: 
     It starts off insidiously.  Your beloved pet seems 'sluggish'...and not him or her self.  Then notes of obvious illness appear and you are concerned.
     You must rush your 'baby' to the vet and you may note symptoms as serious as bloody diarrhea and suspect that something 'exotic' is the cause of your pet's distress.
     Yet it could be that the culprit is your pet's 'dry food'.  Even dry food can be fiercely contaminated with pathogenic (disease-causing) organisms, including those produced by the best pet food companies such as Nestle Purina.
     The sad fact is that much of our BASIC food supply is contaminated with microbes such as Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria, and all the other 'bad guys' I've been writing about here.
     And since these very foodstuffs are used in pet food as well, it is no surprise that the pet food industry is as 'rift' with food borne disease pathogens as human food is.
     Unfortunately, it is very easy to MISS the recall notices put out by the FDA and other agencies and supermarkets and pet food supply stores are not always as 'current' as they should be in pulling affected lots off the shelves and in notifying consumers.
     So I offer this advice to my dear readers:
1)  Check this link daily if you can so that you can at least 'assure' the safety of the food you and your loved ones consume to at least some degree:  
LINK:   http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/default.htm 
2)  Check in here often at 'Dear Ones Healing Ministry' 
LINK: http://www.DearOnesHealingMinistry.blogspot.com  and sign up for my FREE NEWSLETTER (Details Below) and have alerts mailed directly to your emailbox.
 3) AND MOST OF ALL:  DO NOT FEED YOUR BELOVED ANIMALS ANY FOOD THAT YOU, YOURSELF WOULD NOT CONSUME QUALITY-WISE!  All wise pet-owners READ LABELS and know that 'garbage foodstuffs' are added as ingredients in lower-quality pet food.
4)  If you value your pet's life, choose good quality brands of pet food for them!

Consumers who have purchased any of these dry cat food products with these "Best By" Dates and Production Codes should discard it.
Salmonella can affect animals eating the product and there is a risk to humans from handling contaminated products. People handling contaminated dry pet food can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product. Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.
Pets with Salmonella infections may exhibit decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.
At Nestlé Purina PetCare, the safety and efficacy of our products are our top priority. We apologize for any inconvenience due to this voluntary recall. For further information or to obtain a product refund, please call NPPC toll-free at 1-800-982-6559 weekdays 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Central Time, or visit www.purina.com.

"Please Join Me In Prayer For FCC Stamford Right Now" By Reverend Barbara Sexton 'Dear Ones Healing Ministry'

 Rev. Dr. Cari Jackson preaching on gay rights in Cuba.
Dear Ones:
     I hardly ever ask you for a very personal prayer, but I must now.
     Please pray for my church FCC Stamford (The First Congregational Church of Stamford CT).
     This is the 'church that founded Stamford'.
     This is the church that celebrated 'the first Thanksgiving', right here in New England with the Native Americans...both of whom I love so much.
     FCC Stamford was 'gathered' in 1635 and that has to count for something.
     But now it is literally at risk of total collapse.
     This is the church that was 'right and ready' at old 'Fort Stamford' to meet the needs of the people, so many years ago.
     Yet here, today, we are 'at each others' throats' over base things like politics, gay rights, power and money.
     Truly, we are in trouble and I am putting a call out for all 'prayer warriors' everywhere in the world to petition God on behalf of our church so that we do not fail due to human shortcomings.
     Yesterday, our pastor The Rev. Dr. Cari Jackson RESIGNED suddenly and abruptly, without any notice and she left the church in a state of crisis.
     Lord God, I humbly ask that you will make things right and help us see our way,
     Myself, I also ask dear Mother Mary to please intervene on my behalf and on the behalf of those who have lost their way at FCC Stamford.  I pray that you will open the minds and the hearts of those who no longer believe in the sanctity of YOU...especially the gay people amongst us who feel so unwanted and unloved.
     Help us all remember that you are the mother of our Risen Lord.
     Help us all remember to cast aside Christian denominational differences, 
     And help us to always remember to  pray FIRST to GOD THE FATHER and to our Brother, your Precious Son JESUS, to the Holy Spirit and also to YOU, dear Lady.
     I thank you Holy Trinity and dear Blessed Mother as your daughter for listening to all this.
In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit-
AMEN

God Bless You All

"An Apology From Jesus Garcia For Lying About His Military Service" By Reverend Barbara Sexton 'Dear Ones Healing Ministry'


From the 'Greenwich PATCH': Jesus Garcia
Here is the original Greenwich Patch article leading to Jesus Garcia's apology here:
LINK: http://stamford.patch.com/articles/police-greenwich-man-posed-as-wounded-vet
 "Hi im jesus garcia I know what I did was wrong and I deserve for what I did but honestly I did it because I felt I was finally someone special...my fiance is pregnant and I needed help just so I can get her what she needs I thank u for at least saying you''re going to pray for me cause I really need god in my life right now..im not mentally ill or nothing but think about it ppl would do anything to help there selves out....i cant stop thinking about what I did especially lieing like this u know..the only thing I got left is god and my fiance in my life...i can try and figure something out to pay these ppl back I promise that but that's not the prob ..the problem is me showing my self up and ppl hating me but I know god is with me...i will be joining the arm forces in guatemala if these charges don't get me in trouble... I have faith that I will get out of this prob and will keep moving on...if theres anyway u can spread around my appology that would be great....as again im sorry to all..Jesus Garcia"
 Dear Jesus: 
      I appreciate the fact that you sent this apology for publication, and I publish it here with the understanding that I am one of those who has no stomach for anyone who poses as a warrior when they are not. 
     'Stolen valor/Impersonation' is a loser's game and is shameful, which I'm sure you understand in your heart by now. 
     Those who risk life and limb everyday for us in the United States of America...and those who actually sacrifice their very lives for us...are the ones to whom your apology should be directed--to them and to their families and friends, in fact. 
     We read,  "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:13 (KJV) 
     If YOU TRULY BELIEVE IN GOD, Jesus, you will be strengthened by your 'namesake', our brother Christ, and NOTHING WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE for you. 
     You will have the strength to 'man up' to your wrong-doing.
     You will have the strength to face your accusers, to apologize (this is a good start here) and you will have the strength and ability to convince one and all that you will never, EVER attempt anything like what you've done again! 
     Between God, your fiancee and your baby, you are surely blessed.  You already ARE someone special, Jesus...you just don't know it yet!
     You and your fiancee must earnestly pray together, and I will join you as I've promised, doing so as we remember what the Lord tells us: 
"19 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”   Matthew 18:19-20  (NIV) 
     Frankly after reading your letter, I find it hard to believe that you would 'be proud' for your child to know that his or her Daddy did bad things in the sorry excuse of 'supporting his family'. 
     YES, life is difficult and YES life is unfair. But many others have trials and somehow manage to survive, so why can you not do the same?
     You are only 20 years old, dear Jesus, and that is still young enough for some to 'want to give you a second chance' and let you continue on with your life as a much better person--a 'new and improved' version of you! 
     But you must make amends first and on top of whatever the court orders.  I suggest that instead of fleeing the country, you 'suck it up' and redirect your life here. 
     I would suggest that you get gainfully employed. Then VOLUNTEER to help out at a local veteran's hospital outpost, get involved in a group that helps military service members families or volunteer with the American Red Cross. 
     Contact your local VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars), DAV (Disabled American Veterans) or American Legion for information on how you can 'give back' and make restitution in a moral sense, after you have fulfilled whatever is required of you legally. 
     Perhaps your court appointed attorney can assist you with these things. Perhaps the law enforcement officials you have interacted with would also be willing to suggest some useful activities you can perform in the 'public service' sector. 
     True Christians know that they are duty-bound to forgive their brothers and sisters in Christ. Others may not be inclined to do so, but with time and prayer, perhaps they, too, will forgive your youthful transgressions. 
     I've been accused of being 'too forgiving' at times, but I will always choose to give someone 'the benefit of the doubt' unless and until things prove I oughtn't to.
     Are we not to forgive 'not seven times, but SEVENTY times'? 
"The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant: 21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?”  22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times."   Matthew 18:21-22  (NIV) 
     Restoration of 'trust' takes longer, but, with time, that can be rebuilt, too. 
     And so I say, God Bless you , Jesus Garcia and your fiancee and your precious baby to come. 
     May the Lord Bless thee and keep thee...and may He shine His Face upon thee, today and always.
God Bless Us All & GOD BLESS AMERICA

"New York Churches Under Assault By Gay Bullies'-A Connecticut Retrospective" By Reverend Barbara Sexton 'Dear Ones Healing Ministry'

 Dear Readers:
     Oh...it starts off 'innocuously' enough, but the motive of GAY BULLIES is painfully obvious for those of us who have been assaulted by them and their devious supporters.
     So, without much 'ado' here is what's behind the attack of radical gay bullies on churches and other conservative houses of worship, which I pray will be of some consolation to my church-fellows in New York currently struggling with gay rights and gay marriage, specifically.
     Points to understand:
1)  The gay bullies responsible for the 'uprisings' in houses of worship are typically not regular parishioners or visitors, and do not generally present themselves as genuine persons of faith.  Unlike our LGBT loved ones, these gay bullies wish to usurp houses of worship solely for their political and social gain.

2)  LGBT persons of faith are likely to attend UCC (United Church of Christ), and Unitarian churches, Disciples of Christ , Metropolitan Community Churches (MCC) and other 'liberal wings' of traditional churches.  Catholic churches are particular targets of gay bullies due to the church's pedophilia 'history'.  Gay marriages are already performed in many churches and in secular settings in certain states.  But gay bullies are NOT satisfied with this and wish to infiltrate ALL Catholic and conservative Protestant churches for their own personal punitive reasons.

3)  Gay bullies are 'one issue voters' and 'one issue church attendees'.  They are most likely to volunteer (if at all) for such things as hospitality, food and beverage preparation and event handling, so they can bring more of their 'fellows' into the church.

4)  When gay bullies infiltrate a church, it is important to determine who their 'inside contacts' are.  No gay bully can make a furtive or spectacular 'entry' without being enabled by at least a couple of church members who are either gay themselves or have a family member or two who is gay.  These church members will invariably end up on the O & A (Open and Affirming) Committee or at least be vitally interested in what's going on with that committee.

5)  Once the issue of 'gay marriage' is brought up in a church, it will be decided that a 'discussion of homosexuality' FIRST will be useful.  Many hours will be devoted to assuring one and all that, like Christ, 'all are welcome'.  Gay bullies bank on the good-will and compassion of clergy and Christians to do their deeds.

6)  Should anyone be honest and express any anti-gay sentiment, the gay bullies will shout the person down and label him/her as a 'homophobe', utilizing the typical tactics of bullies everywhere.

7)  Gay bullies will polarize a church overnight, thus distracting it from all the other work at hand.  Be prepared for this.

8)  Where gay bullies gain a foothold in churches, 'false good behavior' prevails in those who do not wish to be 'unliked' or called a 'homophobe'.    Free speech will be stifled.  The whole 'gay marriage discussion' will go underground...just like the gay bullies prefer it to be.

9)  As gay rights are discussed more and more, the subject of gay marriage will come up.  Many persons have strong feelings about gay marriage.  And many are 'okay' with a civil ceremony as opposed to a 'religious ceremony'.  But make no mistake:  gay bullies will settle for no less than full religious ceremonies in the sanctuary with a Priest or Minister or Rabbi celebrating.  Gay marriage proponents in NEW YORK call those who have strong anti-gay marriage sentiments (and who as clergy may not wish to perform gay marriages, as is their right) as using 'sad, filthy tactics'.  "Filthy?" Really?  How about I'll keep my religion out of your 'uterus' (or in your case, Alvin, your 'prostate')...if you'll keep your self-righteous gay bullying out of my 'faith life'.  Deal?
"If this is the case, then it is a sad, filthy tactic which proves that in spite of all of their prayers and talk of upholding God's will, those who oppose marriage equality don't have any suitable arguments to defend their cause and therefore have to exploit the righteous indignation of those oppressed by their lies."
http://holybulliesandheadlessmonsters.blogspot.com/

10) Gay bullies and their supporters will insist that just because a church votes to become 'open and affirming' (of LGBT individuals), it does NOT necessarily follow that the church will be performing gay marriages.  THIS IS A LIE.  Once a church 'goes' 'O & A', gay marriage invariably follows poste haste. 

11)  Anyone in the church community standing in the way of gay bullies will be confronted with any number of accusations whether true or false, including: claims of violations of civil rights, claims of pedophilia (especially in churches with histories of such), claims of sexual abuse and misbehavior (in the case of Protestant churches where infidelity and illicit affairs are more predominant than pedophilia) and the like.  Be aware of this and learn how to protect against 'false accusations'.  And if false accusations are made, FOLLOW THROUGH & PROSECUTE!
TOP TEN ANTI-GAY POLITICIANS CAUGHT BEING GAY
(Hint for all GAY BULLIES:  Another's 'downfall' does NOT serve as justification for your own shortcomings.  If you KNOW what it's like to be 'stripped of your rights', why do you seek to strip another of their rights to either perform or not perform gay marriages, each according to their conscience?)

12) Gay bullies will challenge their detractors as being 'bad Christians' for not accepting them and all they demand.  They disrespect and discount the Bible and mock long-held Christian beliefs.  One of the favorite ploys of gay bullies is to make absurd comparisons of Biblical passages, such as, "Well, if you're going to believe that homosexuality is an abomination in the eyes of the Lord, then you can't have sex with your wife when she's menstruating."  Very quickly, discussion with gay bullies in church gets 'weird'.  Be prepared for this. 
http://holybulliesandheadlessmonsters.blogspot.com/2010/10/phony-christians-shedding-crocodile.html

13) Gay bullies get their way by 'intimidation' when they can.  Once they are established in the church, they will tell their opponents, "If you don't like it, then leave."  Then they will deny saying such a thing.  Sadly, many DO leave a church which is overrun by gay bullies.

14) Gay bullies do NOT represent all gays.  Most decent gays, like most decent non-gays (Christians and otherwise) can 'live and let live'.  Of course, I may be wrong here, but I like to look for the best in people...which is why I've been so successfully 'suckered' over the course of my life, I suppose.  Gay bullies only care about what they can get and not a few of them had 'bad experiences' as children at the hands of 'clergy', so to them it's all about that most un-Christian of  concepts, 'payback'.  Oddly, gay bullies most strongly align these days with Muslims (who also feel sidelined, although most Muslims are not very open-minded about homosexuality).  Gay bullies will also align themselves with 'Black Liberation Theology' proponents.  This, also, is a curiosity, since the traditional 'Black church' is fairly straight and conservative.
"BLACK, GAY & MAD AS HELL" (no kidding!)
http://holybulliesandheadlessmonsters.blogspot.com/2008/05/black-gay-and-mad-as-hell-i-was-reading.html

15) The liberal gay community has a lot of resources for gay bullies to use to further their cause.  Outside groups will be brought into your church.  Protests may be staged.  Money may be 'brought in' with the contingency that gay marriages be performed with all the trimmings.

16) The Pastor must provide moral guidance when the church is under attack by gay bullies.  If that Pastor has any secrets of their OWN in their closets, or out, they must disclose and deal with it immediately.  Gay bullies are great at 'blackmailing'.  Any clergy person or church leader who is at risk of being 'blackmailed' should excuse him/herself from any further interaction in positions of authority with gay bullies.  Good churches should always police themselves as believers are admonished to in Scripture.

17) Gay bullies are persistent.  They say they want your 'approval', but really what they want is 'to be able to have their big church wedding just like everyone else'.  There is nothing particularly noble about this, in fact, though only God knows for certain what is in anyone's heart.

18) Gay non-bullies are often uncomfortable by the bully-tactics of their activist brothers and sisters, which is not to say that they don't secretly or openly approve of such tactics.  Still, churches need to be aware that closeted gay members may fear being 'outted' by gay bullies and thus may fall away from the church. 
"The Case For Outting Closeted Politicians"
 http://www.salon.com/news/politics/war_room/2011/06/14/kruger_outing/index.html
This 'falling away' may be misinterpreted as strong disapproval of the gay bullies, thus causing great anguish for non-radical LGBT persons when they feel like they have lost their church home.
SAN FRANCISCO...CONNECTICUT....AND NOW NEW YORK!

19) It's all about power, sex, money and more sex.  Gay bullies know this and it serves the church well to know this and react to it with a 'clean heart'.  A favorite tactic is disrespectful disruption of church services:
Gay activists terrorize Boston church

20) The subject of children is a touchy one.  Many gay bullies have no authority over their tongues as they debate 'open and affirming/gay rights/gay marriage' issues in church.  Parents must be prepared to protect their children from inappropriate speech and actions.  And they must be prepared to 'explain' what gay bullies are all about in ways that are age-appropriate for the individual child.

21) Gay bullies (and other LBGT persons) in church are often found to be involved in 'youth activities'.  Gay bullies in particular are keen to 'help' young people 'determine whether or not' a child is gay.  I cannot stress strongly enough how imperative it is to be vigilant whenever a radical gay bully seeks close contact with church children.  Make sure chaperone's are present.  Do background checks!  Those who are abused sometimes grow up to be gay bullies who abuse children themselves.  In this day and age where anything goes, gay bullies must not be trusted even in a so-called 'church setting'.  Gay bullies have issues and have some 'out there' justifications!:
(Hint for all GAY BULLIES:  Another's 'downfall' does NOT serve as justification for your own shortcomings.  If you KNOW what it's like to be 'stripped of your rights', how DARE YOU attempt to STRIP OTHERS OF THEIRS? (In this case, the right to REFUSE to perform gay marriages!)

22) Gay bullies and their silent but ardent supporters are coming to a church near you.  All they care about is gay rights and gay marriage and they will 'damn' anyone who disagrees with them and/or gets in their way.  They take advantage of Christian hospitality and Christian kindness, knowing full well that in order for Christians to 'live the Gospel' we must love the sinner along with the saint.  And we must know that we cannot always tell the difference between the sinner and the saint either!  Scripture tells us very clearly that 'even the elect will be deceived' meaning that even churchmen and women will make bad choices and have bad discernment.  We are told that in these days, sexual mores will be lax and libertine lifestyles will be common even in religious settings, so that none of us should be surprised.

23) There is one last 'trick' that gay bullies have which they 'pull in church' in order to further their own selfish gay rights and gay marriage ends.  They will start to speak of Jesus as being gay.  They will speak of the disciples as being gay.  They will speak of Jesus and the disciples having gay sex together and they will speak like this in front of all...including the children they are 'trying to help through their wonder years'.  I am not aware that there are any Biblical passages that affirm that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is gay, but I am certain that the liberal left gay bullies have a plethora of evidence.  It's amazing how even non-Judeo-Christian gay bullies are quick to pull out a Bible verse they don't believe in if it is useful to make their point!  Prepare yourself for such talk.  There are no limits when it comes to gay bullies justifying a lifestyle they feel they must justify.  They will impugn Mother Mary and the other Mary and all the women in the Bible.  They will even go so far-as they have in the O & A gay-friendly, gay-marriage performing churches I am familiar with here in CT-as to call God the Father...'Mother'.

24) I've told you these things so that you are prepared when gay bullies attack your church in New York.  Be strong in Christ and testify to the truth.  Do not forget to be kind to strangers, but use the wisdom and discernment God gave you to determine what gay bully troublemakers are really all about.  Most of all, pray for those, both straight and LGBT, who are NOT like gay bullies, but who simply wish to live their lives in peace and in the Love of God.  No evildoers will prevail in the end. But in the meantime, true Christians must be strong so that when gay bullies who are interested only in the things of the world assault them and their houses of worship, they will be prepared.

25) It is claimed that legally, no Priest, Minister, Rabbi or other clergy person can be compelled to perform a gay marriage against their wills, nor force a church or synagogue or social center to service a gay event they are not comfortable with.  However, gay bullies are already seeing to it that such 'exemptions' be deemed 'unconstitutional' on the grounds that the rights of gay people will be violated.  
     As it stands, church leaders and their congregations will be the ones with no rights whatsoever should they oppose gay marriage.
     Please keep the New York religious community in prayer with me at this time.  I have a 'soft place in my heart' for conservative New Yorkers in the religious community, as I was one of the few 'moderate-conservatives' (now fully conservative!) in liberal Connecticut for many years.
     The truth was so expertly concealed from me that I want to warn others of this.
     I want to warn those involved in church politics in New York that they will be lied to.  False promises will be made to them.  And when all else fails, bully tactics are sure to follow in their wake from those with no consciences or regard for the law.
    The old adage is: 'give them an inch and they'll take a yard'.  
     The 2011 version of this is: 'give them an inch and they'll try to sue you for violating their 'civil rights' if you don't perform their gay marriages in your churches to their specifications no matter WHAT, if any their 'religious preferences' may be and HOW DARE YOU ASK ANYWAY?
     I will never alter my perception of marriage as it is given in the Bible and as it is in my heart as God speaks to me: Marriage is a union of men and women for good so that people don't 'stray' (I know, I know...but remember that we are all but dear sinners) wherein those who are intended to bear children do so and those who are so destined adopt.
     I no longer care if gays get married or not as long as they don't 'get into my face with it'.
     I don't care if they have a civil or church ceremony, as long as they don't tell me I must sanction gay nuptials in my church sanctuary'.  That will not happen.
     Others are responsible for what THEY do, as I am responsible for what I do!
     A church sanctuary is a holy place in God's house, no matter that my Progressive lib friends consider it to be nothing more than a 'really neat site to have a wedding and to take pictures with the cool stained glass windows'.
     Of course, my gay friends, God will know what's really in your hearts and what socio-political points you just had to make at your gay wedding.  Rev. Barb is happy to leave it at that.
     But there are LOTS of pretty places to have your ceremonies and take your photos.  Are you sure you really care about our 'churches' or are you just trying to make some kind of 'statement'?
     To all gay bullies: I want you to consider that there are those of us who dedicate our church sanctuaries for holy activities such as worship, communion, baptism, funerals/memorial services, weddings, confirmations and other life-affirming transitions and celebrations.
     Do you realize how disrespectful and hurtful you are to insist that you get your way when there are so many other options available to you?
     I don't expect the 'worst' of gay rights advocates to understand what I am saying here, especially those who don't have a faith life.  The greatest thing I can do for them...is to pray for them and wish them well.
     However, I DO expect gay rights advocates to RESPECT MY RIGHT to feel and say as I do as an American citizen who has a right to freely practice my religion.
     Neither do I  expect GAY BULLIES to understand that my refusal to perform gay marriages is anything other than a PERSONAL CHOICE...and one to which I am entitled, at that.   
     And strangely enough, I am grateful to the LGBT community in Connecticut, New York and surrounding area and especially to those few of you whom I call 'gay bullies':
     You have made me more aware.
     You have blessed me and you have freed me. 
     You have solidified my work and my faith and I am grateful for all that you have done.
     Now I only wish that we could 'work together' in true honesty, without the games and subterfuge.
