Disgusting huckster

I remember this huckster as a kid growing up in Virginia. I would watch him in innocent amazement….believing everything he did was real. I remember after the Russians put the first satellite up how he said the Bible said there would be “signs in the sky”….but I don’t remember what he said they meant, probably the end of the world. Ever notice how these fake, phony, frauds are always predicting the end of the world…..with you needed to be “saved” and of course contributing to their churches.

Donna dialogue….2015

John Ecker Who taught you, Lee. Me….remember? You “saved” in Kings Park, NY about 1973. Religion is cultural, Donna. If you in Libya, Muslim, in Japan, Shinto, in India, Hindu, in Italy, Catholic, in Denmark, Protestant, in China, Confucius, in Africa, a Zulu, in Utah, Mormon, in Hollywood, maybe Scientology, etc.. All will tell you the others bad, and hell the reward for not following them. What kind of crap is that? Did you know there are over 20 thousand different Protestant churches. Only 1/4 of earth is Christian. I’m not really sure which one is correct, probably none. Religions basically a way to form a group. of followers, with a group of priests, pastors, moo las, imams, etc supported as a profession. They usually have a book to guide people, e.g., the Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Koran, etc. I have studied this stuff, Honey, I knew what you meant. You and most people frankly, not informed. The beautiful picture above could be substituted with a kid being blown up by a religious fanatic, remember that. Look what the Muslims doing today!!1, but remember the millions, Christians have killed too, including the Indians here. Thus, there is much more to this than you think. Now I =knw you are a good advocate of Christianity, but there are mik=llions and millions who feel gays are heinous. What about them. So don’t think this is simple or pure. NOW LET”S SEE THE VITRIOL exhibited by Christians for me just saying the truth.

Toni Delahunt Not true. I was raised a Christian, but am now a Pagan. When I started reading and studying, I found It fits my belief system better. I honor Mother Earth, my soul, my ancestors. And practice love and kindness. I’m a healer, and very spiritual.❤️

Toni Delahunt Yes, John, some do. Those that are ignorant and/or closed minded do. If they knew their own religion, they would know that Satan was invented by Christians to keep them on the straight and narrow. Fear is a great motivator. But, I choose love and kindness. I’m to mature to care what uninformed people say or think. I’m firm in my beliefs. I’m on a path, a journey, which I chose to do for myself. ❤️

Give me and us all, a shard of evidence for ANYTHING you say. …anything. I don’t care how little. It’s not I don’t want to believe….just give me a molecule of proof….go ahead, WE ALL WAITING. Watch, Donna, let’s see some proof….but don’t hold your breath. Same goes for you, Chris….an atom of proof.

Lee Scriven The only proof occurs when you sincerely ask Christ to come in to your heart, and even then, the proof is only to you. It’s what causes people to become convicted. It is faith-based, but you cannot know until you ask. He calls us to come to Him like children, and He loves us far more than we love our own children. A love like that can only be felt, not necessarily proven.

Donna Cafora Shepard
Donna Cafora Shepard No, I’m sure she has no “proof” either but what does it matter? Does the fact that there is no Santa make Christmas less fun for children? The fact that they believe, makes Christmas Eve the most exciting night of the year! I STILL remember the excitement of Christmas Eve! It’s what is in your heart that matters. It’s what makes you the person you are. Religion gives most of us a moral compass. No religion, no conscience. I believe this is the biggest problem today. I don’t care if God is a frog. I care about the respect children are taught and live as an adult.

John Ecker
John Ecker Not true, Lee. Religion has nothing to do with real morality, .just look at Muslims cutting people’s heads off, or Christians making homosexuals feel marginalized, or the crusades. Just having to live with others is what provides us with a desire to be good to others, because we want them to be good to us. We feel bad when people mean to uds, and we see what it does to others likewise, and vice versa when we do bad.Now if you said, a sense of caring, and feeling bad about hurting someone else, or feeling bad at seeing a starving dog, maybe then…but it’s the feeling I’m talking about, not the thinking part, the cognitive part. . As I stated the other day, Moses looked around to see if he had been seen when he killed the Egyptian, so murder was known to be wrong long before the Commandments, and he surely knew it….plus there was the Hammurabi Code long before and paltry commandments. But yes, people can be controled by others telling them they will go to heaven or hell depending on what they did on earth. I’d like to talk to you about this someday, but be prepared to spend a month on it. As I have said, I’ve studied this stuff thoroughly. Almost everybody says like you, “Oh, it doesn’t matter, or it helps me….of couse, none of which proves a thing except for checking your brain at the door. You know I can’t do that.

Lee Scriven I think one’s interpretation of religion has a great deal to do with morality.

What is this abortion stuff?

Phew, I hate this abortion stuff. Just how can it be? I never understand it…..summary killing of a completely innocent being….scheesh!!!! What kind of people can be casual about this. Yet, my beloved father was pro-“choice”….though my mother never knew it. I at times can’t believe it….my father, as kind a man as ever walked the earth, yet imperious to the life of an unborn. But, everybody knew how happy my father had been when I was born….he ran hysterically across a highway in NYC and almost got killed. What the heck is this. My father DID HAVE A TOUGH CHILDHOOD, I know that. His mother died in 1938, then his father just farmed the 6 kids out to people in the neighborhood. Yet my father NEVER spoke a word to us kids about his parents, NEVER an ill word.

Sorry, just contemplating what this abortion barbarity could be. Like I have told you and others a hundred times….WHAT IS THIS, I don’t get it. I’m thinking it’s jkust an inborn feeling a person has, either way. Nobody ever taught me a thing about abortion as a kid, yet when the Supreme Court struck down anti-abortion laws (ones I never knew existed) while I at Baylor, I remember knowing it wrong, and saying so.

Then second letter to John Pichiotta:

Phew, sorry to convey this stuff about the origins of pro-abortion stances. I’m thinking the soft heart is a factor, and actually have felt such for about 13 years now. Where the soft heart comes from I just don’t know. I’m thinking a person born with such a capacity….if MOM helps develop it I can’t figure. I do know that a little kid may not have a soft heart….myself being an example. Like pro-abortion people kids just don’t think about others they hurt….just doesn’t enter their minds. For example, in 1954 we moved to Virginia. I was 7 years old. Well we had toads appear from time to time on our lawn there. We also had huge walnut trees there. Well, walnuts come with a green husk and area about 2 1/2 inches across. Well, I would gather bunches of walnuts and throw them with all my strength at the toads. I remember hitting one many times….with its guts hanging out as it tried to jump away. NEVER thought about this till now, and never felt bad. Then I got a BB gun at about ten years old. Well we had a barn full of hay where pigeons would roost. I’d take my gun and shoot them off the ledges they were on. Once I remember hitting one in the head and it curving its head down as it died and fell to the floor….NEVER a compunction from me. I also used to shoot beautiful yellow birds….again with no compunction.

Well, somehow, I developed a very tender heart. I remember praying out loud thousands of times before meals so the kids would hear, “Maybe our kids be born with a soft heart, and their names be written in the book of life…amen.” Phew, thought it might work, until I found Joshua pro-abortion. How can this be? Maybe the soft heart just inborn?

Sorry, just can’t figure this out. I started out Catholic with weekly lessons by a priest using the Baltimore Catechism, then became a strong Baptist for 40 years, now I doubt if religion has anything to do with it….since half the people at church are pro-abortion, or at least ignore the issue. How can this be? Fanny’s pastor mute on this, yet his childhood best friend, Ronnie Holmes, one of the only pastors who will stand up. Is it his soft heart?

Come on, Margie

Oh….Marge, I remember 54 years ago when I and classmates went to see Nazi leader, George Lincoln Rockwell We curious. Well before his bus got there, two other buses turned up, they poured out and set up against him….we just watched, not knowing what going on. Well, he arrived, and they screamed at him so loud, he afraid to get out of his bus. Of course, newsmedia was there. He left. That night on the news, it was reported that there had been riots at our college against him. Hmm, all setup, and all COMPLETELY false. I’m thinking this whole debate now in our country….with many saying we going down….is result of a few bus loads of professional protesters….like 54 years ago. If you referring to football players protesting….well it is obvious to me, few of them are anti-American oriented. Of course, Fox News, my old favorite, reports this as a horribly destructive movement, and rest of media report opposite….each appealing to their contingents. This time 6 years ago, I would have believed Fox, now I have a jaundiced eye. Watch, this will disappear when next polarizing situation occurs. Comments please, but contemplate first.

Please explain Exodus

Please read the Ten Commandments again. There is nothing about child abuse, molestation, rape, etc. You mean God had to make the first four commandments concerning worshiping him? Seems to me a way for Moses to scare his tribes into following and obeying him….like Mohamed later. Hey, why hasn’t the Israeli archeology team been able to find a single shard of evidence for the over 2 million people who lived and wondered in the desert for 40 years? Seems like another child’s fairy tale to me….read the Ten Commandments, please. I don’t like asking questions like this, but to me it’s like when I told each of my kids that Santa not real. Look, WE ALL PRO-LIFE, but I am because it’s just plain wrong. Where did I get this FEELING, don’t know, probably from watching Mommie, but I surely never learned anything from the Baltimore Catechism. Of course continue fighting for pro-life, just leave room for guys who use reason.

 

Those devilish little demons

 I actually went to my own exorcism in Brownwood Tx….to get rid of headaches caused by them. I get to the pastor’s house and he has a group of church members over. They sit me on the coach, then they went onto the rug, some with their legs crossed at the knee. Then they randomly began to say things such as ,Demon, leave John”. This went on for a long.long time….until I yawned. Then the pastor jumped up and said the demon came out in the yawn. Phew, but strangely the headaches continued….until I had my neck adjusted by Chiropractor. Those devious little demons!!!

Joyce and Angela

No way….critical thinking is the way, and no fears of going to hell. Just do what you know is right, you can’t go wrong. Read the Bible, please Joyce. You don’t really know what you saying.
 
John Ecker Joyce, read the NT horizontally….that is, read Mark first story first, then turn tio that story in Mathew, Luke, and John. No way this book real….too many discrepancies. But I know that religion provides structure, hope, companionship, a place to help others, etc….but it just a fantasy in your mind. I was part of such for 40 years so understand, but like Santa Claus, it’s just BS.

Joyce Arns Diehl Feel so bad for you, John. Ever play the telephone game as a child? Ever hear the same story about the same incident from 2 different people? Notice some emphasize this and brush over that and others leave out this and add that? Maybe because we are all humans- including Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. God repeats himself with consistency- the big 10 never change. Keep trying John, you are smart. One day you will catch on to the truth.

 
John Ecker Joyce, sorry, honey, have come too far to believe all that palaver. Please don’t worry about me, though, I really doubt that God is going to reward the most gullible, but instead those who used their brains the most later on. I’m not talking about Mat, Mark, Luke, or John perse above, but what you profess to be the word of GOD. How can such not be consistent. Look we both know we good people, not better than the other. I just do things because they are right, you have a motive. I give credit to my mother, you to a magic man in the sky, that nobody has ever seen. Tell me, Joyce, do you also believe a snake talked 6000 years ago to two naked people, or that a donkey talked, etc. Nope, right? Ever wonder about Mary in the Bible. Why is she so amazed when Jesus does something….she was impregnated by God. Tell me also how Joseph and Mary lost Jesus, and then realized he gone. What kind of parents would not keep their son right by them on a trip. Nope, Joyce, doesn’t make sense. I read this Bronze Aged book, you just go along. But you a good gal, I admit that, and your heart pure….but so is mine. That’s why we stick together

 

Joyce Arns Diehl Snakes lost the ability to talk and to have LEGS when they were cursed by God after tempting Eve. The donkey was given a voice in Numbers to shock its owner for having beaten it three times, to make him realize the donkey was a living breathing beast and not a thing. An angel protected the beast and when God opened the owner’s eyes to see the angel, he realized his actions had been wrong. Back in the day, when the child was in a group where everyone was going to the same place or traveling with everyone you know, the children ran with everyone until called or needed. When parents couldnt find their children they worried and searched until they were found. The children were fine. And this was back when you and i were young and rode our bikes all over the neighborhood and sometimes all over town. In Jesus’ time, parents didn’t have perverts to worry about, nor children disappearing forever, especially Jesus, whose parents knew he was protected by God. You look at half the story John, and forget all the facts. You are a good man, intelligent, questioning. And i will do my best to explain the answers i know.

John Ecker Joyce Arns Diehl Phew, you one good gal….I’ve said that from the beginning, and will NEVER think otherwise. Tell me why God tested Abraham when he wanted him to sacrifice his son. Isaac, when he knew all along what Abraham was going to do. Why this drama, Joyce? Why gert made at Sodom and distruoy it, then let 6 million of his “chosen People” die in concentration camps., This God of the Bible makes no sense. Now, don’t think I don’t believe in God, I do, just not this scenario depicted in the Bible, just too man-made for me, Joyce. I’ve thought about all this too deeply to think God so petty, revengeful, nasty, bloodthirsty, etc, like he depicted in the Bible. You just ignore all this and go along….which is okay for you NOW, but too juvenile for me at this time. I don’t like grace either….it prevents justice for victims. Makes no sense either to think God needed to sacrifice himself to forgive our sins….what sins, I just don’t do any. I also don’t thing God is going to take the most gullible, but instead the most thoughtful people….akin to an bright kid in a teacher’s class compared to a butt kisser. Thanks for your complements, Joyce, you no piker yourself. Are you starting to get this, honey?

 
John Ecker Come on, Joyce, you think snakes lost their legs due to the Garden of Eden. This is what I’m talking about….juvenile, childish responses from you. Think about what I say, Joyce.

Joyce Arns Diehl I do think about what you say, John. That’s what keeps me trying to help you. you are wrong but don’t know it. I will keep trying to teach you.

 
Angela Dees-Kendall I don’t care if you don’t believe John, you have the right to your opinion. But why does it bother you so much that joyce belives? I have alot of friends who are atheist or agnostic but they don’t feel the need to get on every post I make about God and try to make me not belive. That the beauty of believing in God, no matter what you say or try to make people belive we will still belive because that is what Faith is. I feel sorry for you because you seem bitter. You should learn to respect other people’s post and opinions.

 

John Ecker Hey, Angela, did you ever tell your kids that Santa isn’t real? Please don’t tell me you actually feel sorry for me because such is not true. I’ve said this before, but here it is yet again. I deal in truth, not fantasy. Have you ever actually investigated religion? Have you ever read the Bible? Besides, I am relieved of the fear of going to hell. I just do things because they are right, and take or give no credit to anybody. My heart is soft, and that is what counts. I give to 5 different charities through bank draft every month. I just question things, and when I see faulty propaganda being put forth I point it out. I am not bitter…I am not an atheist like maybe some of your friends are. I just don’t believe that God is going to reward the most gullible, but instead the ones who use their minds to question. I’m not a kid, Angela, are you. If so, then don’t talk in church, like the Bible forbids….you only a woman you know….again the view of the Bible.
 
Angela Dees-Kendall I have absolutely no fear of going to hell. My religion doesn’t give me fear, it gives me hope and love. And while your paying through bank to a charity, I volunteer my time to the needy. Soup kitchens, food give aways etc. I just don’t understand why you have to jump on every post. Her facebook page is for what she believes in. If you want to write all this on your page then go ahead that’s YOUR page. Your opinion belongs on your page, or in a comment where your ask to comment. But everytime I see joyce post about God there you are putting down her belief. Can’t you stay in your own lane and let her be with her post? I respect the way you believe so why can’t you do that for others? Why do you feel the need to be so negative all the time?
 

John Ecker Telling someone that Santa is not real, is not being negative, it’s being realistic. Joyce strong in her faith. It’s for others I’m trying to inform. I really don’t like this doctrine that most Christian churches push sa=ying everybody born bad, sand nobody deserves anything except through God’s grace, the old original sin theme. People therefore need to be “saved” ….of course through the local church with tithing to keep the profession of ministers going. I don’t like the guilt generated by this. Watch Jimmy Swaggart sometime to see what I mean. You and Joyce feel good about your reliogion but millions feel bad. Plus the millions of people killed by religion I don’t like. If religion ruled this country, we would all be living in fear. Look at the Muslims right now with clerical rule. People never consider any of this stuff, and I just point it out….nothing more. Doesn’t seem to bother true believers, like you so how is it hurting anybody. Actually Joyce ios doing exactly what I’m doing, just opposite, Keep up helping others, commendable to get involved directly.

 
Angela Dees-Kendall Getting on every post she makes and telling her that her religion isn’t real isn’t realistic. I have friends on my page who daily post about how they don’t belive in God and how it is ridiculous, but I don’t jump in every post, because I know it’s there right to believe how they choose. It just seems negative and rude to get on every post someone makes just because you don’t agree.

John Ecker Hmm, didn’t know it bothering Joyce. She very strong, I feel.

 
John Ecker Look at all the amens below. Nobody even reading my stuff. Why not point out an opposing, but legit position. Don’t tell me, Angela you believe in Noah’s Ark, or Jonah in the fish for three days, or the slavery condoned in the Bible. How can people just gloss over everything? Didn’t you know you twice as dirty as as woman if you gave birth to a female child instead of a female child. I bet yoi know next to nothing about this wonderful book you base your religion on. I read this book continually and am blown away by its content. Yet people just ignore it.

Angela Dees-Kendall God bless you John. I will pray for you to not be so negative and rude. I don’t know what has made you become this way but I know it’s no way to live. You have hate in your heart, you can say you don’t all you want, you can say your just spreading the truth, but that’s not true. People who spread the truth don’t try to shove it down your throat if you don’t want to hear it. Obviously everything your saying to joyce each time you jump on her isn’t working nor will it make her not believe. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Have a good da

Joyce Arns Diehl As usual , john talks about happenings in the Old Testament before Christ was born. When HE came the world changed and with the sacrifice of his life man had a new beginning and our God gave us salvation and forgiveness of sins. But John doesn’t get it he prefers to live in the dark ages of the Old Testamen 

John Ecker Don’t get me started on the New Testament, Joyce. I know much more about it than the Old. It’s not like you think. Gee, thanks, Angela, I’m okay now….with your prayer. I’m seeing this as a parent telling his kids about Santa being a fantasy. You take it as negative, Joyce. The Easter Bunny is not real either, gal. Yes, I admit that Christianity can be a guide to make people act good, but also bad. Tell us all are gays and transgenders okay, or are they sinning….trying to be themselves. Are they condemned to hell by you ior your church. If you say no, then you the exception. I don’t have hate in my heart for good things, Angela, but I see both sides. You represent only the good side, apparently Okay, Joyce only stuff from the New Testament from now on. Tell us, firstly, Angela, where would you stand on Islam if you born in Iran? Would you condemn Muslims as bad, worthy of going to hell? Tell us please, using your Christian doctrine. Joyce, where would you be right now if you born in India? Don’t you both see that culture is what determines what you believe? Please tell us

When HE came the world changed and with the sacrifice of his life man had a new beginning and our God gave us salvation and forgiveness of sins. But John doesn’t get it he prefers to live in the dark ages of the Old Testament.
 
Angela Dees-Kendall God bless you John. I will pray for you to not be so negative and rude. I don’t know what has made you become this way but I know it’s no way to live. You have hate in your heart, you can say you don’t all you want, you can say your just spreading the See More
 
John Ecker Don’t get me started on the New Testament, Joyce. I know much more about it than the Old. It’s not like you think. Gee, thanks, Angela, I’m okay now….with your prayer. I’m seeing this as a parent telling his kids about Santa being a fantasy. You take it as negative, Joyce. The Easter Bunny is not real either, gal. Yes, I admit that Christianity can be a guide to make people act good, but also bad. Tell us all are gays and transgenders okay, or are they sinning….trying to be themselves. Are they condemned to hell by you ior your church. If you say no, then you the exception. I don’t have hate in my heart for good things, Angela, but I see both sides. You represent only the good side, apparently Okay, Joyce only stuff from the New Testament from now on. Tell us, firstly, Angela, where would you stand on Islam if you born in Iran? Would you condemn Muslims as bad, worthy of going to hell? Tell us please, using your Christian doctrine. Joyce, where would you be right now if you born in India? Don’t you both see that culture is what determines what you believe? Please tell us.

Read the God Virus by Darrel Ray

You have a friend who did something negative to you. He comes to you to say he was sorry. It would be easy for you to just forgive him, but instead you say that you will instead sacrifice YOUR OWN son to torture and crucification….in order to forgive him. Yes, your son!!!. Does that make any sense to you….torture YOUR son as a way of forgive someone for doing something against you? Tell me how this would have anything to do with what you did? Well that is what Christians say God did for us. Instead of just forgiving us, he says, no, I won’t do that, instead I will send my son, Jesus, to be scourged, beaten, legs broken, jeered out, and crucified, and if you can swallow this as true, I will forgive you. Does that make any sense? Think about it. If you don’t get it, you have the God Virus affecting your insight, logic, and ability to think straight. You need the book, The God Virus, by Darrel Ray….Amazon

Wonderful Father, Abraham

 Yep, why would God test Abraham when he knew already what would happen. Why the hell we being put through this drama. I wouldn’t mind but too much suffering happening. Imagine a mother in Africa holding her baby as it dies of hunger….God’s plan, you know. This is all such BS.

Jimmy Swaggart

Jimmy Swaggart article here….then my remarks:

Yep, he casting stones all over the place, while cheating on Frances. He a fake, phony fraud. Watch him as he fakes crying, yet no tears. He has his whole congregation thinking they born without worth, except of course dependent on God, and Jesus for anything. He uses music to create spirit, then makes the people feel they saved….of course by being in his church. I often wonder, does he have a group of ax murders there needing forgiveness. Tell mus anybody, what do you do any day or week where you must feel pitiful like Jimmy makes you feel? What looking at the nurse’s butt, or not saying hello to your neighbor?
