PHARISEE WATCH:Presb Church(U.S.A.) Sanctions Israel

Submitted by Editor on Fri, 27/08/2004 - 22:30

Our latest PHARISEE WATCH: "Terminate the Final Crusade", has received many responses and is being reprinted. The post on the website is "corrected." Please take note: The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in fact, passed the resolutions divesting of companies assets that do business in Israel, and it condemning Israel's prison wall. They deserve the credit. Not The Presbyterian Church of America, as I originally stated. The latter is recent split off from the old P.C.U.S.A. group.

Turning her back on a strict Catholic upbringing, Germaine Greer became feminist's leading avatar of free love. As a graduate student at Cambridge University, she often posed nude for underground magazines, and indulged in group sex escapades she would later describe as a "bloodsport."

(TheDenverPost) The gender wars

It's inconceivable that just 40 years ago a book titled "Taking Sex Differences Seriously" would have been published.

In those days, nearly everyone assumed there were important sex differences between men and women. Then along came the feminist movement, and universities from sea to shining sea began offering "women's studies" and everything changed.

Quote: PARIS (RSF/Pacific Media Watch): As the Athens Olympic Games enter their final days and approach the closing ceremony, at which the Olympic flag will be handed over to the mayor of Beijing, Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) today awarded China an additional gold medal - one for human rights violations.
