SUNDAY REVELATIONS: Trump’s Halo

Saudi American Israel Axis” When SAIS Replaces ISIS!

While Donald Trump confronts Iran, the Saudis continue their terrorism.  Thirty years after Chinese troops killed hundreds of students in Tiananmen Square and six years after Egyptian troops shot 800 in Tahrir Square, Sudanese soldiers have done the same in their own square in their own capital.

SUNDAY REVELATIONS: Africa’s Diabolical Entrapment

When I wrote the book “Africa’s Diabolical Entrapment”, in which I examined Black Africa’s plight in its self-imposed religious trap, I stopped short of crossing several thresholds. Contrary to speculations advanced by people who read articles, reviews and intros about this work, the content[...]

A Visit to a Cemetery: Why does the military assume that a dead American soldier must always have been a Christian?

  Embattled Belief .. The Religious Experiences of American Military Nicholas Pellegrino This fascinating essay by Nicholas Pellegrino asks an important question. Why are America’s military cemeteries filled with crosses?  Even if, in the days of yore, 90% of Americans filled in the blan[...]
