The Name of G-d jewfaq.org

“..The most important of God’s Names is the four-letter Name represented by the Hebrew letters Yod-Hei-Vav-Hei (YHVH). It is often referred to as the Ineffable Name, the Unutterable Name or the Distinctive Name. Linguistically, it is related to the Hebrew root Hei-Yod-Hei (to be), and reflects the fact that God’s existence is eternal. In scripture, this Name is used when discussing God’s relation with human beings, and when emphasizing his qualities of lovingkindness and mercy. It is frequently shortened to Yah (Yod-Hei), Yahu or Yeho (Yod-Hei-Vav), especially when used in combination with names or phrases, as in Yehoshua (Joshua, meaning “the Lord is my Salvation”), Eliyahu (Elijah, meaning “my God is the Lord”), and Halleluyah (“praise the Lord”). ..”
Names of God in Judaism
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“..Rabbinic Judaism describes seven names which are so holy that, once written, should not be erased: YHWH, El (“God”), Elohim (“Gods”), Eloah (“God”), Elohai or Elohei (“My God”), El Shaddai (“God Almighty”), and Tzevaot or Sabaoth (“Of Hosts”). Other names are considered mere epithets or titles reflecting different aspects of God,[1] but chumrah sometimes dictates especial care such as the writing of “G-d” instead of “God” in English or saying Ṭēt-Vav (טו, lit. “9-6”) instead of Yōd-Hē (יה, lit. “10-5” but also “Jah”) for the number fifteen in Hebrew.[2]..”

“..The names of God give Christians tremendous comfort because they reveal aspects of his nature and character. Proverbs 18:10 says this: “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” The person who understands God’s names will better understand his character, and therefore, have a tremendous source of strength and protection while enduring the trials of life.

Rapha (râpâ’) means “to restore”, “to heal” or “to make healthful” in Hebrew. When the two words are combined – Jehovah Rapha – it can be translated as “Jehovah Who Heals.” (cf.

ISLAM

The Names and Attributes of Allah whyislam.org
“..Allah has described Himself in the Quran through His Names and Attributes. Muslims believe that studying these Names and Attributes is one of the most effective ways of strengthening one’s relationship with God. Each Name and Attribute nourishes a kind of consciousness and humility in man and their study leads one to constantly better their actions.

“The most beautiful names belong to Allah: so call on Him by them.” (Quran, 7:180)

People will enter Paradise by the Mercy of God

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is reported to have said that no man’s good deeds are alone enough to get him admitted into Paradise, but it is only by the Mercy of God that people will enter Paradise. Our deeds are a tool to get close to God to a place where we can be hopeful of His Mercy. (Read more: Life After Death)

Some other Names of Allah that are related to His Mercy (with rough translations) are Al-Karim (the Generous), Al-Halim (the Forbearing), Al-Barr (the Generous), Al-Jawwad (the Bestower of Good), Ar-Rauf (the Kind) and Al-Wahhab (the Bestower).

The god of Islam and the God of Christianity are Not the Same – Here is the Proof


“..Published on Jan 10, 2016

The god of Islam is called Allah and the God of Christianity is called Yahweh and they are Not the Same.
The jesus of Islam is Muslim and the Jesus Christ of Christianity is God’s – Yahweh’s Only Son and they are Not the Same.
Allah & Muhammad’s Islam paradise is the opposite of the Christian Heaven where Yahweh sits and rules.

Christians & Jews worship Yahweh, The God of Israel – The God of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac.

Yahweh in Hebrew means “He exists.” Yahweh is Self-existent.

Muslims worship Allah – the god of the Quran / Koran.

Muhammad was a self-styled prophet who was no prophet at all – May the Police be called upon him.

“Allah” was part of the name of Mohammed’s father, who served 360 idols. Mohammed destroyed 359 of them, kept allah, the chief idol, the moon god, the black stone, & it became the god of Muslims.

The Muslim Allah was a moon god with NO Name, though he was given 99 attributes. Allah is a NOUN means “god” in Arabic. “God” is a TITLE, not a name.
The name Allah was used as the personal name of the Moon god, in addition to the other titles that could be given to him.

“Allah” same as “God”

Is Allah of Islam the same as Yahweh of Christianity? ciu.edu
“..This is similar to the word “Allah.” For most Muslims, Allah is the only God and therefore must be the same God as the one that the Jews and Christians worship. Similarly, for some Christians, Allah is just another name for the one God of the universe. For others, however, the Muslim Allah and the biblical Yahweh are contradictory and cannot refer to the same being, for, they say, “how can the God of Muhammad be the Father of Jesus Christ?” The question before us, then, is whether the terms “Allah” and “Yahweh” are just two names for the same God, or are they referring to different Gods? (And since there can only be one true God, the ultimate question is, “if they are different, which one is the true God?”)..

It is a generic term for the highest god of the people, and in Arabia it was in use for centuries before Muhammad came on the scene. Apparently it was one of the 360 gods worshipped in the ka’aba in Mecca, and was the chief god for the Quraysh tribe, which was the tribe Muhammad belonged to. In the pre-Islamic time, Allah had three daughters, Al-At, Al-Uzza, and Al-Manat. In Muhammad’s campaign against polytheism he chose Allah as the one true God and rejected the notion that Allah could have any daughters or sons. The Allah from the Qur’an, however, is very different from the Yahweh of the Bible. For one thing, Allah is a distant, remote being who reveals his will but not himself…

Some scholars want to emphasize the similarities between Yahweh and Allah, and point to a common belief in a monotheistic God who is Creator of all things, omnipotent and merciful. Both religions also claim that God has sent prophets to reveal His will and produce scriptures to guide our lives. However, Allah and Yahweh cannot refer to the same person for the following reasons…”

God’s name is not Yahweh – Proof from Jewish Rabbis (Episode 4 of 5)

A Rood Awakening!
Published on Oct 31, 2017

Is there a conspiracy among Jewish Rabbis to conceal the name? There are newly found sources that prove Rabbis have known the name for centuries. Is Yahweh the real name of God?

Michael Rood and Nehemia Gordon research a newly found source that proves the name of God is Yehovah. We have written proof from 16 Rabbis that the vowels missing from the name of God are Yod Hey Vav Hey. We were never supposed to find these lost letters, notes, and sources but Yehovah has made a way. Discover the real name of our Adonai.

Also, Kevin Fisher shares the real location of Noah’s Ark. Lab tests, archaeological artifacts, and radar testing have now proven the actual location is not Mount Ararat. There are anchor stones, cave drawing, and headstones that are close by to the real location. Journey with us as we learn more about the Flood that destroyed the world and the name rediscovered.

What is Human Trafficking? exoduscry.com
“..“The recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation.”..”

What is Human Trafficking

25 Painfully Disturbing Facts About Human Trafficking


“Published on Jun 4, 2014

Did you know that there are more slaves today than ever before in history? These are 25 painfully disturbing facts about human trafficking.

https://www.facebook.com/list25
http://list25.com

Check out the text version too! – http://list25.com/25-painfully-distur…

Here’s a preview:

The average cost of a slave in 2013 was between $90 and $100
In most regions, 80% of trafficking involves sexual exploitation
The remaining 20% is generally for labor exploitation
The number of slaves on Earth today is estimated between 20 and 30 million
Nearly 1 million of them are moved across an international border every year on the black market
70% of those slaves are female
50% are children

Behind drugs and weapons, human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry in the world
It generates approximately $33 billion ever year
Over half of that comes from industrialized countries
Even for purposes of labor exploitation, women still constitute over half of Earth’s enslaved population
Organ harvesting is another seldom mentioned but quickly growing industry that benefits from human trafficking
An estimated 30,000 victims of sex trafficking die each year from abuse, disease, torture, and neglect
Eighty percent of those sold into sexual slavery are under 24, and some are as young as six years old
Ludwig “Tarzan” Fainberg, a convicted trafficker, said, “You can buy a woman for $10,000 and make your money back in a week if she is pretty and young. Then everything else is profit
A 2003 study in the Netherlands found that, on average, a single sex slave earned her pimp at least $250,000 a year
A human trafficker can earn 20 times what he or she paid for a girl. Provided the girl was not physically brutalized to the point of ruining her beauty, the pimp could sell her again for a greater price because he had trained her and broken her spirit, which saves future buyers the hassle
The end of the Cold War has resulted in the growth of regional conflicts and the decline of borders. Many rebel groups turn to human trafficking to fund military actions and garner soldiers.
According to a 2009 Washington Times article, the Taliban buys children as young as seven years old to act as suicide bombers.
The price for child suicide bombers is between $7,000-$14,000
UNICEF estimates that 300,000 children younger than 18 are currently trafficked to serve in armed conflicts worldwide
Babies are sold on the black market, where the profit is divided between the traffickers, doctors, lawyers, border officials, and others.
Researchers argue that as the economic crisis deepens, the number of people trafficked for forced labor will increase.
Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises because it holds relatively low risk with high profit potential. Criminal organizations are increasingly attracted to human trafficking because, unlike drugs, humans can be sold repeatedly
There are more slaves in the world today than ever before in history..”

Jada Pinkett uncovers the horrific realities of modern-era slavery in the U.S., where children are kidnapped and exploited by traffickers. CNN Special Report – Children for Sale: The Fight to End Human Trafficking.”

Minnesota man accused of using forced labor in restaurant Associated Press Fri, Aug 4 5:09 PM PDT yahoo.com
“..Pisanu “Pat” Sukhtipyaroge, 71, of Maplewood, is accused in a criminal complaint of forced labor involving the man, who was 18 years old when he arrived in the United States in 2015 from the Dominican Republic on a student visa, the Star Tribune reported.

Authorities allege that Sukhtipyaroge put the man to work at his restaurant for low pay while deducting the costs of bringing him to the U.S. from the wages in a “debt bondage arrangement.”

The complaint also says Sukhtipyaroge threatened to contact immigration officials to have the man deported if he didn’t engage in sexual activity. The man told authorities that he’s “very fearful” of Sukhtipyaroge, according to the document.

The criminal complaint says the teenager only attended high school for a short time before Sukhtipyaroge said he wasn’t allowed to go to classes. Sukhtipyaroge then kicked the man out of his home, allowing him to live in a storage room below the Royal Orchid restaurant in Columbia Heights, according to the court filing.

The complaint says the man told authorities that Sukhtipyaroge chats with young teenage boys online in pursuit of sexual activity and travels to foreign countries to engage in sex acts with young boys. The filing says law enforcement executed a search warrant at Sukhtipyaroge’s home and found bags containing what appeared to be “boy/teen’s underwear.” Officials also found videos on a computer seized from Sukhtipyaroge showing him performing sex acts with the victim, according to the document.

Court records don’t list an attorney for Sukhtipyaroge who could comment on his behalf. An answering machine message at the restaurant says it’s closed until Aug. 8.

This story has been corrected to show that Sukhtipyaroge lives in Maplewood, not Columbia Heights.

Jeffrey Epstein: Judge Protects Billionaire Pedophile, Won’t Allow Damning Evidence in Child Rape Trial Published: December 6, 2017 blacklistednews.com
“..This lawsuit, which was filed on behalf of three women who claim Epstein paid them to give him “sexually-charged massages” at his mansion in Palm Beach when they were teenagers, is arguably one of Epstein’s lesser crimes.
“I don’t want this to turn into whether Jeffrey Epstein is a serial child molester,” The judge said, warning that he will limit the evidence that can be used against Epstein

As Hafele acknowledged, it is likely that the jury members, in this case, will be informed about the last time Epstein was sentenced to prison, after he negotiated a non-prosecution agreement with federal prosecutors in 2008…

Epstein has already paid more than $5.5 million in settlements to the three women. They are just a few of the more than two dozen women who Epstein has paid undisclosed amounts of money to, in exchange for their silence, according to the report….”
“..More recently, the sheriff’s office said they didn’t have any record of Feldman naming a suspect in his allegation that he was sexually assaulted. Now the story has changed.

The sheriff’s spokeswoman, Kelly Hoover, issued a statement to USA TODAY Wednesday confirming the sheriff’s office had just found an audio recording of a 1993 interview of Feldman by detectives and has turned it over to the Los Angeles Police Department.

“Following the recent inquiries into the Sheriff’s Office interview of Mr. Feldman in 1993, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office conducted an additional review for any stored items remaining from the Michael Jackson investigation,” the statement said.

“In a container which included the original reports from the (Jackson) investigation, the Sheriff’s Office located some detective working copies of audio recordings made during the investigation. A copy of Mr. Feldman’s interview was located. The recording is being turned over to the Los Angeles Police Department.”..”

Judge Protects Billionaire Pedophile, Won’t Allow Damning Evidence in Child Rape Trial instagram.com (freedom_faction)

“..When a convicted sex offender appears in court over a lawsuit filed on behalf of three of the many women he assaulted when they were young girls, it is assumed that his actions will be examined in detail, and the content will be graphic.

However, in the case of a lawsuit filed against billionaire Wall Street hedge fund manager #JeffreyEpstein, 64, the judge presiding over it has declared that when it comes to “graphic, sexual questions, the likelihood is that I will not allow them into evidence.” #PalmBeachCounty Circuit Judge Donald Hafele already ruled in favor of Epstein when he agreed to delay the next hearing in the 8-year-old civil lawsuit until March 2018, according to a report from the Palm Beach Post. Now, the idea that he won’t allow “graphic, sexual questions” in a lawsuit over sexual misconduct is ludicrous.

This lawsuit, which was filed on behalf of three women who claim Epstein paid them to give him “sexually-charged massages” at his mansion in Palm Beach when they were teenagers, is arguably one of Epstein’s lesser crimes. “I don’t want this to turn into whether Jeffrey Epstein is a serial #childmolester,” The judge said, warning that he will limit the evidence that can be used against Epstein

As Hafele acknowledged, it is likely that the jury members, in this case, will be informed about the last time Epstein was sentenced to prison, after he negotiated a non-prosecution agreement with federal prosecutors in 2008.

Epstein spent 13 months in prison, out of the 18-month sentence he was given for “soliciting prostitution and procuring a minor for prostitution,” after it was revealed that he was running a child sex ring, in which he hosted rape parties for his wealthy friends on his private jet, the Lolita Express, and on his private island, which was referred to as “#OrgyIsland.” 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾#PedoGate #PizzaGate #PedoWood #LolitaExpress..”

This documentary exposed a network of religious leaders and Washington politicians who flew children to Washington D.C. for sex orgies.

Her foster parents eventually adopted Eulice and her two sisters and two other children were adopted as well. Three foster children also lived in the home…

Washington also told her foster mother that an officer of the Franklin Credit Union had flown her and several Boys Town students (Boys Town is the distinguished Catholic orphanage on the outskirts of Omaha) to pedophilic orgies in Chicago and New York City. In March of 1986, a Boys Town youth worker interviewed Eulice Washington and penned a very detailed report about her allegations regarding Boys Town students.

He was on the planning committee for the National Black Republican Celebrity Gala held in Washington before the Inauguration of President Reagan and Vice President Bush.

Unfortunately, Larry’s ostentatious lifestyle caught the attention of the Internal Revenue Service. The mean spirited I. R. S. agents notified additional Federal Agencies. Eventually Larry found himself charged with appropriating about 40 million dollars for his own use.

5 Prevailing Causes of Human Trafficking borgenproject.org
“…According to a 2012 International Labour Organization Report, 21 million people are victims of forced labour. The Asia-Pacific region accounts for the largest number of forced labourers in the world with 11.7 million victims (56 percent of the global total), followed by Africa with 3.7 million (18 percent) and Latin America with 1.8 million victims (nine percent).

According to the Huffington Post, approximately 75 to 80 percent of human trafficking and slavery is for sex. The rest are forced into economic labour exploitation, such as agriculture and construction work. In 2015, 5,544 cases of human trafficking were reported, as stated in a study by the National Human Trafficking Resource Center.

Human trafficking can be separated into sex trafficking and labour trafficking. Though they have different purposes, there are general trends that explain the overall root causes of human trafficking.

“..VERO BEACH, Fla. – Only one person has been charged with human trafficking in connection with prostitution in Florida massage parlors, despite multiple agencies linking the 10 spas shut down this month to Chinese sex trafficking.

Her name is Lanyun Ma, and she’s a 49-year-old Orlando woman who ran East Spa in Vero Beach.

“It’s very difficult to charge somebody with that,” acknowledged Detective Sgt. Phil Huddy, who supervises the detective division at the Vero Beach Police Department.

Ma was seen transporting numerous women with suitcases to and from the spa who are believed to be victims of human trafficking, according to her arrest warrant. ..”

Human Trafficking Survivor Story: Dellena, California


“..Published on Jun 20, 2012

Add your name to support the CASE Act against human trafficking and online predators: http://www.caseact.org/

In California, many vulnerable women and young girls are held against their will and forced to sell their bodies. The victims are often girls as young as 12 who are sexually exploited for the financial gain of human traffickers. They are afraid for their lives and abused — sexually, physically, and mentally.

Human trafficking is said to be one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises in the world — and it is taking place right here in our own backyard. Three cities in California — San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego — are recognized by the FBI as high intensity child sex trafficking areas. In addition, a recent national study by a victims’ rights group gave California an “F” grade for its weak laws dealing with child sex trafficking.

The CASE Act, a partnership of California Against Slavery and the Safer California Foundation, will protect children in California by: Increasing prison terms for human traffickers. Requiring convicted sex traffickers to register as sex offenders. Requiring all registered sex offenders to disclose their internet accounts. Requiring criminal fines from convicted human traffickers to pay for services to help victims.

The CASE Act has also been endorsed by organizations representing over 90,000 rank and file California Peace Officers, advocates for the protection of children, including Marc Klaas and the KlaasKids Foundation, and victims who survived sexual exploitation when they were children…”

Pope Francis accepts resignation of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick over sex abuse allegations
“..McCarrick has said he had “absolutely no recollection” of the alleged abuse of the teenager 50 years ago but has not commented on the allegations of abuse of adult men and another minor that were brought forward later.

“Pope Francis accepted his resignation from the cardinalate and has ordered his suspension from the exercise of any public ministry, together with the obligation to remain in a house yet to be indicated to him, for a life of prayer and penance until the accusations made against him are examined in a regular canonical trial,” a statement said.

The scandal surrounding him has stunned the American Church because he was a widely respected leader for decades and was a confidant of popes and presidents.

Last month, American Church officials said allegations he sexually abused a teenager almost 50 years ago were credible.

Since then, several men have come forward to allege that McCarrick had forced them to sleep with him at a beach house in New Jersey when they were adult seminarians studying for the priesthood…”

Joyce Meyer Opens Up About Being Raped by Her Father Over 200 Times-“I Never Felt Safe” Posted on April 27, 2016 Kelsey StraeterKelsey Straeter faithit.com
“…Even as Joyce started to open up about her dark past, she always referred to it as “sexual abuse”—but in a recent interview posted on her website this week, she admits that term is truly not enough anymore. It was rape.

“Literally, what he did was rape me, every week, at least once a week, until the time I was 18. My father, who I was supposed to be able to trust, who was supposed to keep me safe, raped me a minimum of 200 times,” she said.

“He didn’t force me physically, but through lies, and manipulation, and fears, and threats, I was still forced,” she added. “My father did rape me, numerous times, at least 200 times.”..

The main reason she is being so transparent in her testimony now is because she’s grateful that God’s grace and freedom have released her from the “pretending game” she had to play for so much of her life.

Though the pain and suffering ran deep for many years, Joyce has now been able to find healing through the love of God, who has shown her what a true father’s heart looks like. She even fell in love with her adoring husband, Dave, who reaffirmed that a man’s hands can be gentle, respectful and kind.

“How can that have happened to me, and me be standing here today, if God is not alive and well?” she said. “I want people to know how good God is, and that your struggle is worth it, your journey is worth it. Don’t give up.”

Joyce now loves her life as a mother, grandmother and worldwide Christian speaker, and she hopes that in sharing her story, others may find healing….”

The SABC has unearthed a permit that was issued by the Monument Council in the 1980’s, granting PE businessman Dave Allan permission for a diving expedition to the Dodington, which sank near Bird Island. Allen is one of the men identified in the book written by journalist Chris Steyn and Mark Minnie.

Jeffrey Epstein, a Billionaire Friend of Presidents Trump … – YouTube
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9BHuaQlvTs
“..Billionaire hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein, who has been accused of sexually assaulting underage girls for more than a decade, will appear in federal court today in Manhattan on sex trafficking charges. He was arrested on Saturday for allegedly running a sex trafficking operation by luring underage girls as young as 14 years old to his mansion in Manhattan. Epstein was previously accused of molesting and trafficking dozens of underage girls in Florida, but he ended up serving just 13 months in county jail after the U.S. prosecutor in Florida, Alexander Acosta, cut what’s been described as “one of the most lenient deals for a serial child sex offender in history.” The plea deal allowed Epstein to avoid a federal trial and possible life in prison, and effectively ended an FBI probe into the case. Acosta is now Donald Trump’s labor secretary. Epstein has counted Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton among his friends. We speak with Vicky Ward, an investigative journalist who profiled Jeffrey Epstein for Vanity Fair in 2003 in a piece headlined “The Talented Mr. Epstein.” The magazine’s editor at the time, Graydon Carter, cut out the testimonies of two young women Epstein allegedly molested who had spoken to Ward on the record. Ward later wrote about the incident for The Daily Beast in an article headlined “I Tried to Warn You About Sleazy Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in 2003.”

Corey Haim’s A-list rapist may finally be named — what took so long? 1 day ago (9.20.16) by Caroline Goddard sheknows.com

“..Feldman has been discussing the sick environment of Hollywood child sexual abuse for years, even detailing the abuse both he and Haim suffered in his memoir, Coreyography. Most recently, last spring he told The Hollywood Reporter about parties for preteen actors where predators groom their next victims, and said that he and Haim had attended many. And he’s not the only one speaking out.

Elijah Wood said he was protected from such predators because his mother would not allow him to attend the parties, and although he later denied firsthand knowledge of rampant sex abuse in the industry, he gave some very telling quotes to the Sunday Times.

“Clearly something major was going on in Hollywood. It was all organized. There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind,” he said.

“There is darkness in the underbelly. If you can imagine it, it’s probably happened.”

Elijah Wood Clarifies Comments on Hollywood Pedophilia By DANIEL VICTORMAY 24, 2016 nytimes.com
“…The actor Elijah Wood clarified his remarks on Monday after suggesting in an interview with a London newspaper that sexual abuse of child stars was more widespread in Hollywood than had been reported.

After the interview with The Sunday Times drew international headlines and questions, Mr. Wood put out a statement emphasizing that his comments weren’t based on personal experience.

“Let me be clear: This subject of child abuse is an important one that should be discussed and properly investigated,” Mr. Wood said. “But as I made absolutely clear to the writer, I have no firsthand experience or observation of the topic, so I cannot speak with any authority beyond articles I have read and films I have seen.”..”

A notorious mansion. An alleged assault by a Hollywood producer. A suicide. What happened to Brian Claflin?
By Gus Garcia-Roberts May 11, 2018 | 5:00 AM latimes.com
“..Goddard, a director, producer and theme park designer, has faced similar allegations. Last December, eight former members of a Santa Barbara youth theater group in the 1970s alleged that Goddard molested or attempted to molest them. A ninth was said to have told others before he died that Goddard sexually assaulted him as a child. Goddard denied their allegations…

Claflin’s chance to exit Utah came when he met a man from Santa Monica at a gay nightclub before his senior year. In the letter to a lawyer, Claflin wrote that the stranger told him he “was the most beautiful boy he’d ever met” and that he knew “some very rich and powerful people that wanted to meet me and could possibly get me a job.”

The mansion would become notorious as a site for sexual exploitation of underage boys. It was home to the three co-founders of Digital Entertainment Network (DEN), an early internet content streaming experiment with investment from wealthy Hollywood figures including Goddard, stock filings show.

In his statement, Claflin said Goddard and a friend of the filmmaker persuaded him to inhale nitrous oxide one night, which was the first time he had used drugs. He immediately felt dizzy and passed out, he wrote, and awoke to being further drugged while Goddard sexually assaulted him. “I was in a delirious state and remember saying NO, NO, NO, several times but they persisted,” he wrote. “I just sort of shut down and went somewhere else in my head. After a while I remember praying aloud to God to just make it/them stop.”.

A Florida-based attorney, Jeff Herman, had filed lawsuits against Goddard and “X-Men” director Bryan Singer, both former DEN investors, accusing them of sexually abusing boys in connection with that company, and at a London hotel room in 2006. Singer and Goddard denied the allegations…

He told friends about powerful men in Hollywood who wanted him dead because he knew too much. A week or so before his death, his parents Skyped with him as he barricaded himself in his bathroom, afraid of men he said were stalking him from his roof. On June 2, 2014, Claflin texted his father to “have a handgun nearby.”
..

In one of the suits against him by the two executives, Herman was deposed, and discussed Brian Claflin under oath. He said that Claflin was one of many people he heard from “around the world who said that they were abused by people in Hollywood.

He described Claflin as a witness with important information, having been an errand boy at the DEN mansion in Encino. Claflin was fearful that “somebody was going to try to kill him” because he knew too much about a “gay Mafia in Hollywood,” Herman said.

Brian Claflin’s parents said that they decided to take their son’s allegations public in support of several new accusers — including “ER” star Anthony Edwards — who alleged that Goddard molested them four decades ago.

Hunt described some of the alleged abuse to FOX 13 in June:

“There were so many times when I wanted to give up, but I couldn’t do it anymore and I think about how much he would have wanted this,” explained a tearful Mary Hunt.

The bad blood between them began after their nasty breakup. Mitchell accused Hunt of stealing millions of dollars worth of diamonds, jewels and gold from his home safe. Mary said he set her up.

But Foster says the bumps and bruises were self-inflicted.

“There is no evidence that he ever beat her,” said Foster. “This video now demonstrates that she is striking herself in the same area of the face and head that they allege Scott struck her.”..”

My Story of Surviving Sexual Abuse & How To Prevent this Silent Killer | Jenna Quinn | TEDxUTD

TEDx Talks
Published on May 16, 2017

Jenna Quinn is a sexual abuse survivor and the driving force behind “Jenna’s Law” that requires school districts, daycare centers, foster care centers, and child placing agencies to educate children and adults on how to recognize, prevent, and report abuse and sex trafficking.

Jenna Quinn is a child sexual abuse survivor, author, and the force behind Jenna’s Law. Jenna’s Law was the first child sexual abuse prevention education law in the United States named after a survivor to require that each school district adopt and implement a prevention policy that educates students, teachers, and parents on the likely warning signs of sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and how to report. Now, over half the country has passed some form of legislation since Jenna’s Law in 2009. With a master’s degree in communication studies, she is a sought-after speaker who has traveled nationwide, educating and sharing her inspiring story with legislatures, law-enforcement, abuse-prevention groups, schools, communities of faith, nonprofit organizations, and the general public for over twelve years. She has participated in both local and national radio, television, and news programs, and she has dedicated her life to preventing child sexual abuse through education and legislation.

Why Do People Sexually Use or Abuse Children? 1in6.org
A very important question, asked by many people.
And a question – a search or quest, even – that some will struggle with for years.
“…..
Fearing they somehow brought it on themselves, and hoping that understanding the other person will prove it wasn’t their fault.
Still loving the person who used or abused them, and hoping that understanding why they did it will bring healing to their relationship.
Hoping that understanding why the person who used or abused them will help them to prevent other children (perhaps their own), from ever being sexually abused.
Feeling that life is unfair, unjust, random and/or meaningless, and hoping that understanding how someone could sexually abuse a child will bring some order and meaning to life.
Focusing on the other person, including why they did it, can be a way of avoiding one’s own responsibility, as an adult, for dealing with harmful effects in one’s own life, including self-destructive and harmful behaviors. (We mention this possible reason with no criticism of those to whom it applies. It’s not uncommon, and totally understandable, among those still struggling with major negative effects.)

Importantly, people may not be fully aware of some reasons why they’re asking why the other person (or people) did this to them. They may not recognize some hopes they have for the benefits that such understanding could bring. That’s totally normal. Over time the full significance of this question in your life may become clearer – or completely change as other aspects of your life change…”
Why would an adult sexually abuse a child? stopitnow.org
“..Some adults sexually abuse a child to feel the power and control they don’t feel in their relationships with other adults. Sometimes, adults who have intimate sexual relationships with other adults may sexually abuse children in moments of unusual stress, such as after the loss a job or during a divorce. Some adults are primarily sexually attracted to children, and some never act on those feelings. Some adults act impulsively when presented with an unexpected opportunity to sexually abuse a child. Other people, particularly youth with high social status or with social or emotional delays, may not even fully understand the harmful impact of their actions…”
An Ongoing Sex Drive Directed Toward Children

What Causes Someone To Molest?

A few sexual abusers will sexually touch a child because they are profoundly intellectually disabled, or they have developed a brain disorder, or they are psychotic. Close supervision and, when appropriate, medications to control the disorder often stop child molesters in this group.

George does not fit here.

Some abusers will sexually touch a child because they have an antisocial personality disorder. Think “anti-society.” People with this disorder may be social, even glib. So why do we call them “antisocial?” Because they believe that the rules of society do not apply to them. They break many of society’s rules. Essentially, antisocials lack feelings for others. In the mind of an antisocial, all of the rest of us, including children, exist to be used. The child molesters in this group appear most often in horrific accounts you see on television and in the newspaper.

Neutral Perspective: Spanish (others) Colonialism in the Philippines was “good” and “bad”?

My name is Salvador, who is a second generation Filipino American living in Minnesota-U.S.A. My great great grandparents (father’s side) is Spanish, so I would have to say it was “good” that the the “Spanish” colonized the Philippines, but “bad” about the “other stuff” that will be mentioned above.

Spanish records also mention the presence of Lequios (big, bearded men, probably descendants of the Phoenicians, whose ships were always laden with gold and silver) in the Islands to gather gold and silver. Some historians believe that the seat of Ophir in the Philippines is the Pacific Ocean side of the Island of Samar which was led once upon a time by a Samaritan Hadi Iberein, who was a staunch ally of the Kingdom of Tondo. The Pacific side of Samar is also recognized by some historians as the ancestral homeland of the Polynesians.

EXPLOSIVE FIND Secret World War II treasure worth billions ‘found in Philippines cave’… but massive stash of gold bars and rubies has been booby-trapped with BOMBS By MARK HODGE
6th January 2017, 12:21 pmUpdated: 6th January 2017, 5:41 pm thesun.co.uk
The fabled Yamashita Treasure was reportedly stolen and dumped by Japanese soldiers towards the end of the brutal conflict
“..The loot was reportedly stashed in underground tunnels and caves by fighters under the command of General Tomoyuki Yamashita before Japan surrendered to the US in 1945.

Yamashita’s unit allegedly stole the booty before stashing it…

In the newly released video, explorers are shown wiping away mud from bars revealing their shiny gold surface.

After it was shared on social media site Reddit the footage has been viewed nearly 200,000 times.

But despite the excitement around the clip, anthropologist Piers Kelly insists that Yamashita Treasure is a myth conjured by locals to boost morale….”
Yamashita’s Gold-
Did the world’s biggest treasure fall into the hands of the American government after WW2?

“..It was in a huge tunnel complex dug by the Japanese at the Cagayan Valley in the Philippines. Inside the tunnel was treasures of a staggering proportion.

Labeled tunnel 8, this was just one of 175 tunnels dotted around the Japanese occupied islands of the Philippines. Each filled with billions of dollars worth of gold, jewels and priceless statues and art…”

‘..Marcos had discovered the treasure vault’s location, and over the next year his troops would extract an estimated 10,000 gold bars from the tunnels, worth tens of billions of dollars.

The story has a strange footnote. In 1996, after the deaths of both Marcos and Roxas, a US court in Hawaii awarded Roxas’ heirs a judgment of a staggering $43 billion dollars against the Marcos estate.

To date, not a cent of it has been paid…

But Marcos had a problem, the gold only made him theoretically rich. He couldn’t sell plundered WW2 gold without its origins becoming obvioUS To realize the wealth, he had to make it look like it was mined in the Philippines.

In 1975, Marcos turned to an American mining engineer named Robert Curtis. Curtis was an expert in changing the metallurgical fingerprints of gold to disguise its origins.

Marcos courted Curtis with talk of incredible stashes of WW2 loot hidden on the island. He told Curtis he had acquired Japanese maps entrusted to a Filipino man by none other than Prince Takeda himself, the architect of Golden Lily…

The American managed, somehow, to talk his way out of a bullet in the head. He told the men he had the maps to the other vaults and Marcos would never find them if they killed him. The bluff bought his life.

Having narrowly escaped death, Curtis immediately fled the Philippines and returned to the US But the American did claim one small victory in the sorry affair — he had photographed the treasure maps and could perhaps return one day to resume the search…”

Kennon Road and Baguio by Ernesto R. Zárate, FPIA gobaguio.com
The epic of Kennon Road is a part of the story of Baguio.
Without it, Baguio would not have survived.
“..La Trinidad, became a foothold to the Cordillera Mountains. Through the years the Spanish tried to institute order, build churches and schools, make trails and introduce the planting of vegetables and coffee…

The coming of the Americans

…As early as 1892, a young American zoologist from Michigan,
Dean Conant Worcester, heard about this fabulous place from one Domingo Sanchez, a member of the Spanish Forestry Bureau. (Worcester would later become a member of the Philippine Commission.) In July 1900, he led a group of Americans on an expedition to the Benguet region and that trip resulted in the birth of Baguio.

The first American explorers were smitten with the weather and landscape and decided that it would be an ideal site for a future city and summer retreat from the sweltering heat of the lowlands. It did not take long for Gov. William Howard Taft (who later became President of the United States) and other officials to agree that this should be the location for the summer capital and health resort of the Philippines…

..Disquieting rumors were also rife as to the practicability of completing the road. There was a difference of opinion between the engineer in charge and one of his immediate subordinates. They could not agree on which route should be followed. The consulting engineer of the commission was thus ordered to make a survey. He reported that the route that was started was the more feasible course, but to complete the project, at least $1,000,000.00 would be needed. Not wanting to relive the experience the Commission had with Engr. Meade, they solicited expert advice, from Colonel Lyman W. V. Kennon, a man of great energy and executive ability, who had had vast experience in engineering work in mountainous country…”


*see Philippines: Baguio City in Benguet Province smiletravelingblog.wordpress.com

…In addition to the roadbed itself, Colonel Kennon constructed 40 bridges—two of which were made of steel, the others of wood. Except for the use of dynamite to blast out solid rock, it must be noted that there were no heavy equipment then—work was done usually with ordinary picks and shovels. This was no small feat in 1905. Still, according to engineering experts, it was the most expensive engineering work at that time, a big drain on the colonial budget….

In other words, what we see and admire as the Zigzag portion of Kennon Road was actually the result of a grave engineering error—a basic blunder where the lower portion of the road did not meet as it should with the upper section. But the Americans did not condemn this mistake—they glorified it. To paraphrase an old Tagalog maxim: “Bato na ginawang ginto.”

Nevertheless, it cannot be denied that the completion of the Kennon Road in 1905, just five years after the American colonial government authorized its construction, opened up Baguio and soon the rest of the Cordillera region to the world. More than that, it spurred the development of Baguio and nearby areas so that in 1920, the city was already a thriving population center.”

-Christianized?
*see Religion: What is Christianity? goodnewseverybodycom.wordpress.com

Spanish Influence on Language, Culture, and Philippine History filipinokastila.tripod.com
“..The Filipino populace embraced Spanish Roman Catholic Christianity almost unquestioningly. The Spanish authorities congregated the scattered Filipino population into clustered village settlements, where they could more easily be instructed and Christianized under a friar’s eye. This policy paved the way for the emergence of the present system of politico-territorial organization of villages, towns, and provinces. At the same time, the compact villages which were literally under the bells of the Roman Catholic Church permitted the regular clergy to wake up the villagers each day, summon them to mass, and subject them to religious indoctrination or cathechismal instruction. This process enabled the Church to play a central role in the lives of the people because it touched every aspect of their existence from birth to growth to marriage to adulthood to death. Whether the natives clearly understood the tenets and dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church is of course another matter. Some scholars claim that the Spaniards only superficially Christianized the Filipinos, most of whom learned to recite the prayers and chants by rote, without any idea as to their meaning. Some native inhabitants became only nominal Christians. At any rate, there is no denying the fact that many Filipinos defended the Catholic faith devotedly. ..”
CHRISTIANITY IN THE PHILIPPINES Professor Susan Russell
Department of Anthropology seasite.niu.edu

“…Christianity in the Philippines Today:

Christianity in the Philippines today, unlike during the Spanish period, is a mixture of nationalistic efforts by local peoples to ‘Filipinize’ Roman Catholicism and the efforts of a variety of Protestant missionizing successes. In the American colonial period, 1900-1946, a lot of Protestant teachers and missionaries came to the Philippines to ‘purify’ what they viewed as the incorrect or ‘syncretic’ characteristics of charismatic blends of Filipino Roman Catholicism. The Aglipayans were among the first to try to Filipinize Roman Catholicism and were popular in the early part of American colonial rule. The Iglesia ni Kristo is another Filipino-founded sect that has found strong support among well-to-do Filipinos.

In remoter parts of the Philippines, where Spanish colonialism and Roman Catholicism never penetrated until the beginning of the 20th century, a variety of Christian missionaries compete for new converts. Seventh Day Adventists and Jehovah’s Witnesses typically go door-to-door, spreading the specific messages that their sects support. In traditional, staunchly Roman Catholic areas, their missionizing efforts and attacks on syncretic forms of Roman Catholicism are often unwelcome. In areas where Roman Catholicism is still fairly recent, the missionaries carry messages that are more carefully listened to by local Filipinos. What was once a truly Roman Catholic country in terms of the population has given way to a variety of forms of Christianity.

In the Luzon highlands, for example, where many indigenous ethno-linguistic groups resisted Spanish rule, Roman Catholic or Anglican priests today have a fairly comfortable accommodation with indigenous forms of ritual and belief. Local peoples follow traditional customs related to burial rites, but often invite Christian priests to celebrate the last rites or formal burial rites in addition. The advantage of this kind of syncretism is that people’s beliefs and support for their traditions are not lost, but simply accommodated with beliefs and practices associated with the newer religion. Many recent Protestant missionaries, in contrast, fail to recognize the value of supporting indigenous customs, and simply attack local religious practices as evil. Their meager success in attracting converts speaks to the need for understanding the context in which American religious practice can flourish…”

“..By his second term in office, Marcos blamed Catholic priests, many of whom were now openly criticizing him, for fomenting student and leftist protests against his rule. As elsewhere in the world, the Catholic Church in the Philippines was profoundly impacted by Vatican II and was working more closely with impoverished Filipinos on basic issues of social justice. Marcos worked to discredit the Catholic Church, accusing it of sympathizing with Filipino communists. To heighten his own Catholic credentials, he invited Pope Paul VI to the Philippines, though the Pope himself was unwilling to play the role assigned to him and both he and the Church made a clear and concerted effort to sideline Marcos and his wife from official functions…”
*see Deep Thought: What are considered “idols”? goodnewseverybodycom.wordpress.com
What are the positive and negative effects of spanish contributions in the Philippines? answers.yahoo.com
“Let’s answer this via the timeline. First and foremost, the colonization of the Spaniards introduced the Philippines to the “modern world”. As a matter of fact, the Philippines wasn’t even a country when the Spaniards came. It was just a series of islands with different tribes living in different “barangays.” BUT they did have a form of organization. The positive effect simply is that the coming of the Spaniards, aside from bringing together the 1000+ islands under one flag, helped the Philippines become a modern country. The Europeans were at the forefront of progress and modernity at the time. Clearly, one negative effect was the maltreatment of the Spaniards (most particularly the friars) towards the Indios. But a positive effect that grew out of that was the birth of Nationalism, which Rizal and the other ilustrados brought into fruition. Now fast-forward to today. If you notice how divided the nation is in terms of social classes (the poor are the majority in terms of numbers but are the minority in terms of power while the rich are the complete opposite), as well as the corruption, it all goes back to the Spanish colonial times. The way the friars and the Spanish government ran the country is still the same way people run the country today. It’s whoever has the money has the power. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s unfair to blame the Spaniards for it, since the Philippines has gone this far already. All I’m saying is that corruption, this hacienda mentality, goes all the way back to the Spanish colonial period. I hope this answers your question.
By the way, I think the Church, originally wasn’t so good, but at the same time it wasn’t so bad either. The Spaniards used it to “brainwash” the Indios into doing what they (the colonizers) wanted (e.g. the friars were one of the most corrupt people during the Spanish colonial period but no one could touch them because they were “God’s servants”). But the Church also brought the people together and now is part of the beautiful and colorful Filipino culture…”- DJA · 6 years ago …

“…For all the talk of bringing “civilization” to the Philippines, American commanders responded to the Filipino insurgency with the utmost brutality.

Where did your name come from?

Where did your name originate, like how did your parent(s) choose to name you? This was a question that has been popping-up lately in conversations, which is the reason I decided to do a topic on this. I have been asked this many times what is my full name and what it means. I’m always excited to share this as it’s very meaningful and personal to me. Before I share this answer, I would like to bring up the history of names. I found this great site…

Origins and Meaning of Names, from mayrand.org
“…Historically, names have served as a fingerprint of life, perhaps a basic clue to one’s personality. Knowledge of naming practices in our ancestral country of origin can help us trace our respective families back to a village or a place, tell us their occupation, or it can give us an idea about what our ancestors looked like..

That is what I did one day. I searched my last name “Monteagudo”, which originates in Spain. This is where my great-grandparents immigrated from to the Philippines. It means “pointed” (agudo) “mountain” (monte) according to ancestry.com.

People ask how I got my first name, which is Salvador (sal for short)! I told them that my parents got it from a Catholic Calender (see other Philippine Baby Names) in the Philippines, which they have names for each day throughout the year. I saw this as a kid and thought it was cool. I hold dearly the meaning of my name, which is “savior” (see wikipedia & babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com). I don’t deserve the capital “S” in “savior” as that belongs to Jesus Christ Himself, who is the true “Savior“!

With this, do you think your name serves a purpose or destiny in your life? What do you feel is yours?
