Saudi governmental press slammed the U.S. for its “despicable” double standard over the proposed bill that would allow victims of the September 11 attacks to sue the Kingdom, claiming that the move would “open the gates of hell,” enabling all countries that have been wronged by the U.S. to sue it for war crimes.

God said what? People throughout history have made up differing versions of what God is.
Here in the west, in good ole America, flatworld religion is firmly based in magical thinking. God is on our side, along with “Israel”, of course.
Dirt worship remains the dominant mindset. God clearly loves killing, death gets God off, if you read their sacred texts.
Slavery was customary in antiquity, and it is condoned by the Torah, which occasionally compels it. The Bible uses the Hebrew term ebed to refer to slavery; however, ebed has a much wider meaning than the English term slavery, and in several circumstances it is more accurately translated into English as servant. It was seen as legitimate to enslave captives obtained through warfare, but not through kidnapping. Children could also be sold into debt bondage, which was sometimes ordered by a court of law.
Thomas J. Murphy, Jesuit Slaveholding in Maryland, 1717-1838, New York, Routledge, 2001. 258 pages. Reviewed by Maura Jane Farrelly, Voice of America, for the Journal of Southern Religion.
Murphy asserts that the Jesuits serving in Maryland in the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries had their own unique motives for slaveholding. The community also had unique motives when, in 1838, it chose to abandon the institution of slavery, not by manumitting its 272 slaves (a practice that was not uncommon in Maryland at the time), but by selling them to two sugar plantation owners in Louisiana.
It is no coincidence that the Society of Jesus turned to slave labor in the last third of the seventeenth century, at about the same time as the rest of the free, land-owning population in Maryland. To say that the Jesuits had “unique” motives is not to imply that they did not have the same motives for slaveholding as everyone else.
…the Jesuits had rich philosophical and theological traditions to draw from when justifying their decision to use slave labor on their plantations.
At the time, the Catholic Church did not view slaveholding as immoral, said the Rev. Thomas R. Murphy, a historian at Seattle University who has written a book about the Jesuits and slavery.

Let’s get this straight:
God said slavery was cool. The same God who “killed his only begotten son”. The same God Hitler invoked, per chance ? The God of the KKK! The “God” who made man the boss and women property?

It’s official: Maine will decide on marijuana legalization in 2016
Citizen initiative clears signature review; the measure would legalize adult use and possession of up to 2.5 ounces, along with regulating and taxing cannabis
PUBLISHED: APR 28, 2016, 6:35 PM • UPDATED: A DAY AGO
By David Sharp, Associated Press
PORTLAND, Maine — A referendum proposal to legalize marijuana for recreational use in Maine has met the threshold to appear on the November ballot, Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap said Wednesday.
The announcement means the citizen initiative will be forwarded Friday to state lawmakers, who can either enact it now or put it before voters in the fall.
Maine will be one of several states considering marijuana legalization proposals. Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Washington, D.C., already have made recreational use of marijuana legal for adults.

OC Register A new, older face of medical marijuana found in Laguna Woods March 5, 2016 Updated March 6, 2016 9:38 a.m. By SCOTT BOSCO and BROOKE EDWARDS STAGGS / Staff writers LAGUNA WOODS – Tony Pierce was 21 when he smoked marijuana for the first time. It was an act of rebellion, recalled Pierce. “I thought I was going to hell. I remember feeling tired and then paranoid that my mother would somehow find out.”
Pierce, now 62, said he had to cut short a career as an Orange County Transportation Authority bus driver after he was laid up by chronic pain from spinal cord cancer.
He’d spend 18 hours in bed some days.
Two years ago, Pierce moved to Laguna Woods, a retirement community formerly known as Leisure World, where 80 percent of the roughly 16,400 residents are older than 65. What he found there was a highly organized and supportive medical marijuana collective ready to help him manage his pain.
“It gave me my life back,” said Pierce, sporting shorts and a subdued Hawaiian shirt during a visit with neighbors and fellow collective members.
The collective, Laguna Woods Medical Cannabis Club, and its volunteer peer guides introduced him to pot-infused chocolate bars and other edibles, which he said has helped ease his discomfort and wean him off opiates that could leave him feeling stoned.

Anandamide, also known as N-arachidonoylethanolamine or AEA, is a fatty acid neurotransmitter derived from the non-oxidative metabolism of eicosatetraenoic acid (arachidonic acid) an essential ω-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid. The name is taken from the Sanskrit word ananda, which means “joy, bliss, delight”, and amide. It is synthesized from N-arachidonoyl phosphatidylethanolamine by multiple pathways. It is degraded primarily by the fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) enzyme, which converts anandamide into ethanolamine and arachidonic acid. As such, inhibitors of FAAH lead to elevated anandamide levels and are being pursued for therapeutic use.

Anandamide’s effects can occur in either the central or peripheral nervous system. These distinct effects are mediated primarily by CB1 cannabinoid receptors in the central nervous system, and CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the periphery. The latter are mainly involved in functions of the immune system. Cannabinoid receptors were originally discovered as being sensitive to Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC, commonly called THC), which is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. The discovery of anandamide came from research into CB1 and CB2, as it was inevitable that a naturally occurring (endogenous) chemical would be found to affect these receptors.

“For parents of a severely ill child using cannabis as a last resort medical option, the situation is a bit more complicated: the parents’ fear of losing their child to state custody is compounded by the fact that if the authorities intervene, the child will no longer be able to receive the only medical treatment that has worked.”

Thats odd, so does “Al-Qaeda”(literally translates as the base). She’s the most vicious of the pack, btw. She represents! The similarities don’t stop there. Both groups are of the flat world persuasion, each uses it as an excuse to dominate, if not kill, those not like them.
What would Moses say about that? How about he Prince of Peace ?
