Pope Francis - "Be like a banana"


"What do you do if your banana goes the other way?"



.- During his meeting with the youth of the Central African Republic, Pope Francis gave spontaneous comments in response to a young local who asked the Holy Father's advice about living in a war-torn country.
“We have been taken by heavy winds and violence...these challenges remain numerous,” the young man told the Holy Father, pointing out that the symbol of their country was the banana tree because it is resistant and life-giving.
The young man expressed that he and many of his friends are tempted to leave the violence and difficulties of their homeland in the Central African Republic. Since 2012, over 6,000 people in the CAR have died from violence spread by Muslim rebel groups challenging the country’s presidential power.
Pope Francis’ visit to the CAR is the most dangerous yet, as the country is considered to be an active war zone.


This friend who spoke in all of your name said that your symbol is the banana tree, because the banana is the symbol of life, it always grows, always produces, gives life, nutrients, energy.
The banana plant is very resistant. I think that this tells us very clearly the way that's proposed to us during this difficult time of war: the way of resistance.

State Department: Iran Deal Is Not ‘Legally Binding’ and Iran Didn’t Sign It



NRO – President Obama didn’t require Iranian leaders to sign the nuclear deal that his team negotiated with the regime, and the deal is not “legally binding,” his administration acknowledged in a letter to Representative Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) obtained by National Review.
“The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is not a treaty or an executive agreement, and is not a signed document,” wrote Julia Frifield, the State Department assistant secretary for legislative affairs, in the November 19 letter. Frifield wrote the letter in response to a letter Pompeo sent Secretary of State John Kerry, in which he observed that the deal the president had submitted to Congress was unsigned and wondered if the administration had given lawmakers the final agreement.
Frifield’s response emphasizes that Congress did receive the final version of the deal. But by characterizing the JCPOA as a set of “political commitments” rather than a more formal agreement, it is sure to heighten congressional concerns that Iran might violate the deal’s terms.
“The success of the JCPOA will depend not on whether it is legally binding or signed, but rather on the extensive verification measures we have put in place, as well as Iran’s understanding that we have the capacity to re-impose — and ramp up — our sanctions if Iran does not meet its commitments,” Frifield wrote to Pompeo.

Ben Carson: KINDNESS





In the midst of a fairly caustic campaign season, Ben Carson is calling for a little more kindness. He's also urging Americans to talk to people who are different from them.
"Despite these profoundly divergent and conflicting times, we must not allow them to cause further division and strife," the Republican presidential candidate wrote in a Thanksgiving op-ed in The Hill. "Instead, we must take the time to talk and to listen to one another, because it is the uniqueness of our differences that will ultimately heal, inspire, and revive America."
Kindness, Carson wrote, is "the most important of all virtues, because without it, one cannot practice any other virtue consistently." Kindness requires compassion and empathy, he wrote, "which allows us to have a mutual respect for our fellow citizen."
Carson, who is a Seventh Day Adventist, refrained from writing about any political issues and instead delivered a broad, Christian message.
"If you have an opportunity, talk to someone who is different from you, someone who may not be the same skin color or share the same ideas, because this is how we truly learn from one another," he wrote. "God created us all in His image, and in His abundance of love, He gave His only begotten Son."

Seven heavenly virtues[edit]

A list of seven heavenly virtues, to oppose the seven deadly sins, appeared later in an epic poem entitled Psychomachia, or Battle/Contest of the Soul. Written by Aurelius Clemens Prudentius, a Christian governor who died around 410 A.D., it entails the battle between good virtues and evil vices. The enormous popularity of this work in the Middle Ages helped to spread the concept of holy virtue throughout Europe. The virtues are identified as chastity, temperance, charity, diligencepatiencekindness, and humility. Practicing them is said to protect one against temptation from the seven deadly sins
Kindness is a behavior marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition, and concern for others. It is known as a virtue, and recognized as a value in many cultures and religions (see ethics in religion).
  • According to Book Two of Aristotle's "Rhetoric" it is defined as virtue.[4] It is defined as being "helpfulness towards someone in need, not in return for anything, nor for the advantage of the helper himself, but for that of the person helped".[5]
  • Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche argued that kindness and love are the "most curative herbs and agents in human intercourse".[6]
  • Kindness is considered to be one of the Knightly Virtues.[7]
  • According to eighteenth century Bohemian philosopher Honza z Žižkova, kindness is the most important part of his practical philosophy on deceiving bureaucracy.[8]
  • In Meher Baba's teachings, God is synonymous with kindness: "God is so kind that it is impossible to imagine His unbounded kindness!"[9]

Ben Carson to Visit Syrian Refugees in Jordan





Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson will go to Jordan Friday to visit Syrian refugees, campaign officials said Thursday.
The New York Times first reported that Carson plans to visit a refugee camp in northern Jordan. Campaign officials confirmed the trip on Thursday night.
"I find when you have firsthand knowledge of things as opposed to secondhand, it makes a much stronger impression," Carson told the Times before his departure.

The Real Story of Thanksgiving

Published on Dec 2, 2014

History Documentary hosted by Rick Robles, published by History Channel in 2010 - English narration

The Real Story of Thanksgiving
The story of Thanksgiving, with its costumed Pilgrims, turkeys and pumpkin pie, zigzags through American history with some surprising twists. At the iconic Thanksgiving feast of 1621-- no pumpkin pie or cranberry sauce was served, and that event was wiped from the history books for 200 years! In the 19th Century, some southern states thought Thanksgiving was an abolitionist plot and refused to celebrate it. Thanksgiving didn't become an annual national holiday until World War II! What started as a somber Puritan day of prayer is now about football and food. How did we get there? Join HISTORY as we serve up The Real Story of Thanksgiving

Bisexual Oregon Gov Kate Brown: We Will Welcome Syrian Refugees



Oregon Gov Kate Brown: 
We Will Welcome Syrian Refugees


As conservative governors (and presidential hopefuls) around the country sound off about what kind of international refugees they believe the U.S. should accept, the nation's first openly LGBT governor has a much different tactic.
In a Facebook post Tuesday, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, who is bisexual, stressed that her state will continue to offer refuge to the world's tired, the poor, and the huddled masses yearning to breathe free.

“It would have been so much easier for us if you were a lesbian” Kate Brown’s parents declared when she came out as bisexual.
Brown, Oregon’s new governor  and the nation’s first openly bisexual governor, recalled feeling like she had “a foot in both worlds” upon realizing she was bisexual.
At the time of her public (and involuntary) “outing” by the Oregonian during one of her many close campaigns for public office, bisexuals were (and still are) perceived as “greedy, promiscuous or indecisive” and shunned by both heterosexuals and gays alike. Brown herself was told by gay friends that she was only “half queer.”
Brown, however, immediately embraced her public identity and is now widely viewed by LGBTQ Oregonians as one of their fiercest public allies. Read Further:

Attention !!!

Low-Income Women of Oregon: 

Your Reproduction Is Now the Government’s Business


Oregon’s implementation of its new contraceptive metric is an alarming sign that nationwide governmental monitoring of America’s low-income women’s reproduction is on its way—along with flagrant disregard for women’s privacy and religious freedom.
Oregon’s low-income women are about to be subjected to a level of invasive questioning and religious disrespect by government-funded health-care providers on an unprecedented scale. Women receiving government-funded health services will now be questioned about their pregnancy intentions by multiple government service providers—including Medicaid primary care doctors, home visiting staff, and in some counties, even WIC food-supplement providers. As a result, low-income Catholic women seeking government aid in Oregon will be repeatedly subjected to contraception counseling, even though it is contrary to their religious beliefs.
Oregon is the first state in the nation to adopt a new Medicaid evaluation tool that evaluates Medicaid providers by the percentage of their female patients who use “effective” contraception. They are evaluated against a new contraceptive metric that assesses “effective contraceptive use among women at risk of unintended pregnancy.”
Oregon’s Medicaid contraceptive metric is based on an initiative of the Oregon Foundation for Reproductive Health (OFRH), which is an entity of NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon. Under the OFRH’s One Key Question initiative, primary care providers are encouraged to ask women of reproductive age, “Would you like to become pregnant in the next year?” and provide counseling based on the woman’s answers, either preconception care or contraceptive counseling. If she answers that she is “Unsure or Ok Either Way,” then she will still receive counseling on birth control.
