“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

Pope Benedict XVI said Monday that pharmacists have a right to use conscientious objection to avoid dispensing emergency contraception or euthanasia drugs - and told them they should also inform patients of the ... via Fables of the reconstruction

Since I left religion, just as I am, I now feel whole on my own.

It was as simple as that.

No more will I believe that a god is perfect and that I fall short of such a "mark."

What a lot of hooey!

If she believed that a god was filling her with love in how she handled her daily life ... she would have had no longing to find that fulfilment.

It should have travelled with her wherever she went.

But (my guess is) she was fighting with her own conscience in order to keep preaching what she did not believe was based on truth.

What a tragedy for her!

Her superiors knew of her fight within, but they wanted her to keep lying for their own agendas, and they also kept lying for their own agendas.

From my perception, those in the hierarchy cared nothing about Mother Teresa's feelings. She begged them to destroy the personal letters that she sent to them ... but they needed her letters to bolster the idea that all "saints" suffered from such confusion of belief.

They pretended and still pretend that she is material for sainthood ... but they didn't care how she suffered because of not being faithful to her own conscience.

The Documents

On some of the letters and notes about her interior darkness, Mother Teresa had written “matter of conscience.”

The Buddha suggested to always question beliefs ... but then the Buddha continued on to teach a philosophy to follow in order to find "enlightenment."

It wasn't a lie "exactly" but it enticed people to believe that the Buddha was indeed an "enlightened" being ... one step from the rewards of eternal bliss in Nirvana.

Flush out the dogmas of any religion and you will find arrogance.

Rather than whining "Dear Lord ... please forgive my sins" ... why not check with your conscience what would be the best way to treat others.

You could start by following your commandment to your selves.

"I will not preach religious dogmas at others and pretend that what I preach is based on truth."

If you try cleaning up your own messes for a change, you won't have so much idle time to use your self-perceived "HOLY" words to preach at others.

Only those who believe they are holy can CON-vince themselves that what they preach is based on holiness.

Possession of ignorance is nothing of which to be proud.

"Guided" by her dogma, Mother Teresa preached that using birth control and abortion were sins.

Yet she saw the results of not using birth control or abortion that ended in countless babies being born to suffer and starve to death, while the extensive amount of money donated to feed those babies went elsewhere ... such as to build new places to train nuns that in turn could teach the Catholic dogma to others as truth.

Of course she suffered! Why wouldn't her conscience suffer?

She worshipped the suffering of innocent little babies who deserved better and she put down starving women who had abortions as evil sinners.

That she wasn't a happy woman is no wonder.

As she prayed for a connection with the god of her desires, my guess is, Mother Teresa wouldn't allow her mind and heart to read literature such as the following.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>

From the book …“Abortion … by R. F. R. Gardner”… comes the following….first published in 1972.

On the other hand the principal Scandinavian ground for termination has been “worn-out housewive’s neurasthenia”(which Dr. Brekke likens to that seen in concentration camp victims). The poor conditions obtaining before the pregnancy include many apparently unconnected factors—poor housing, economic difficulties, marital problems, illness, maladjusted children, the husband a poor bread winner. Physically she is in poor shape, probably with varicose veins and piles, and there are phychosomatic symptoms such as muscle tensions and chronic headache. She is always tired and irritable, sleeps poorly and has an anxiety state. All these get progressively worse with each new burden placed on the woman until what has been termed “insufficiency” develops. Such women are legion, especially (although not solely) among the working-class community.

I get that!

I don't preach at other that they are sinners and I am holy. I don't believe that an imaginary god favors my stupidity and rules in favor of me.

Do YOU get THAT?

If all the people that preached they are going to a high realm of perfection arrive there, I hope there is no afterlife for me.

From my perception it's more than enough of a penalty on earth to listen to these religious blatherers of stupidity, without having to endure the same suffering in another lifetime.

Another round of a Jerry Falwell, and I'll commit a murder, and I guarantee, it won't be mine!

Mother Teresa once stated that she was "one of the worst people she knew." June, now I think you and I realize what she meant. She sure had me fooled; I was one of her greatest admirers. Did you also know she didn't believe in painkillers? And that the hospitals HER patients were admitted to were way below good standards. However, when SHE got ill she went to the BEST hospitals and did take painkillers.

The Buddha (the "enlightened one") and Augustine (the saint) each left their women and a child behind to become "holy men."

There's much to be said for such reasoning, or lack thereof, but from my perception, the words implied should not be "enlightened" or "saint."

Mark my words that the mark of intelligence is to know you don't know the future.

When you mark that on your mental slate, you will have insight to go through each day trying to leave a mark of kindness in the memory of your neighbors.

But first, you must understand that you did not fall short of the mark of any deity.

Marks are very important to those who show respect and kindness.

It all goes to show that she was a very confused woman ... preaching how to be pleasing to a supposed god, while at the same time longing to find that god in her own life.

Her image of herself was very low and that was probably one of her only spoken truths.

I have no ill feelings towards her. From my perception she was in thought and deed, her own worst enemy.

Peace of conscience is the best for which we can hope, and from my past experience, that can't be found in religious dogma.

The dogmas are geared to create arrogance, lies, division and confusion ... not peace.

Had I accepted the Christian dogma of my mother, as taught by the preachers of my childhood, chances are I would have accepted into my psyche that others would burn in hell and I would be saved.

Had I accepted my father's belief in reincarnation, I probably would have in my arrogance believed as did the Buddha, and does the dalai lama that I would be nigh-on close to enlightenment.

Believing that I am mortal, and being at peace within the darkness of my illusions, seemed a more rational choice for me.

I find it very suspicious when people write about cults, but don't include their own favored religion as a cult.

From my perception, that smacks of favoritism, and nothing other than favoritism.

Cults—by Lowell D. Streiker. Published 1983.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>

Lowell D. Streiker is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ and holds a Ph.D. in religion from Princeton University.

He is the author of several standard works dealing with sects, cults, and conversion phenomena including The Cults Are Coming; Cults: The Continuing Threat; Mind-Bending: Brainwashing, Cults, and Deprogramming in the '80s; and The Gospel Time Bomb: Ultrafundamentalism and the Future of America.

Ph.D. stands for Doctor of Philosophy.

So, in one capacity Lowell D. Streiker is a Doctor of Philosophy that feels qualified to write books about "cults" ... yet when he puts on his "other hat" he is an ordained minister of a Christian church and preaches the dogma that Christianity is based on truth and NOT on philosophy.

How handy is THAT?

He points at other religions as cults, and then preaches from within his own cult that he KNOWS that Jesus is a savior of Christians.
