A Shriner who claims to be pure, virtuous--and Lucifer

In 2007, Crossbearer interviewed a man who was attending the Shriners convention in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

An example of "Christian" youth "engaging the culture"

Whenever I see something like this, it makes me more grateful that the Lord saved me when He did. This is more evidence that "youth culture" (especially that which claims to be Christian) is an oxymoron.

A young neo-Nazi on YouTube

A 23-year old neo-Nazi from Indiana named Jake makes the following comments in "About me" on his YouTube page. Note especially the last part of what he says, and draw your own conclusions.

I'm a young Nationalist, father, student and writer. I can be critical of Christianity, admire (although not yet worship) old European Pagan faiths, and am excited for the new Renaissance that I believe is in its beginning stages - not incidentally occurring simultaneously with the decline of Christian learned absolutism, and an increase of Earth (environmental and animal rights) awareness.

Stupid gnostic comment on YouTube

A very thin book could be published titled "Intelligent Comments on YouTube." The following was posted on November 18, 2009 by a British National Party supporter who identifies himself as KaOssis, at a video titled The Second Coming of Dan Brown's Jesus:

Yes it is funny, because you're interpretation of Jesus is of a physical male, when Revelation 22: tell's you the identity of the Lamb/Son of God is infact the Spirit of the Bride, and only the Bride is the physical matter and Jesus the Spirit, which mean's NO man has? Salvation, muhahahaha!

That looks like gnosticism to me, which denies that Jesus has a physical body (see I John). For the record, here's what the first part of Revelation 22:17 says:

And the Spirit and the bride say, Come.

That's "the Spirit and the bride," not "the Spirit of the Bride." The bride is the church; Christ's church and the Holy Spirit are calling for the Lord Jesus Christ to come. Before KaOssis makes any further comments, he should work on his reading comprehension skills--although if the illiteracy of the comment is any indication, that may be beyond his ability.

Scientology acccused of torture, embezzlement, forced abortions, and child molestation in Australia

It comes as no surprise to this blogger to hear of the latest accusations against the "Church" of Scientology. I remember about 20 years or so ago when the leader of the movement in Edmonton was charged with molesting a young girl. His superior came in from Vancouver for a visit, and the charges were suddenly dropped--which those of us who kept an eye on such things found very suspicious.

The Church of Scientology faces the prospect of a police investigation in Australia after being accused of torture and embezzlement and of forcing employees to have abortions.

Nick Xenophon, an independent senator, presented letters to the Australian Parliament from seven former Scientologists which he said showed that the secretive church was a front for physical violence, intimidation and blackmail.
