The latest on the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, that Mormon sect shut down by Texas for child abuse:

Out of 464 kids, at least 41, some of them ''very young,'' have evidence of broken bones.

They haven’t checked out all the kids yet, so chances are that 41 is a low kids-with-broken-bones figure.

What I don’t understand is this: Why is everyone going google-eyed over this?

The kids with the broken bones were probably stubborn.

And the Bible says if your kid is stubborn, ya stone him to death.

So these are some of the sweetest parents on the planet. All they did was break a few bones.

Think there’s a cat’s chance in hell a Pagan group could capture one of Dubya’s “Faith-Based Initiative” grants? Excuse me for a moment [HAHAHAHAHAHAH, AHAHAHAHAH -- hiccup -- HA AHARDY HAR HAR!]. Ahem. Better, now.

If so, take a gander at this:

“… faith-based grant applications were supposed to be reviewed by a White House panel in a ‘religiously neutral fashion,’ but … the panel's ratings were ‘a farce’…. One panel member [said]: "When I saw one of those non-Christian groups in the set I was reviewing, I just stopped looking at them and gave them a zero [out of a possible 100]…’” [from a letter I got recently from the Interfaith Alliance].

Just for fun today, I shot “ancient Goddess” and “agape” together into Scroogle's search box.

After clicking on the search button and waiting a beat, a list of articles popped onto my computer screen. At the very top of the list was an article about the book The Giuliana Legacy, by Alexis Masters.

Well, after reading only a few reviews, I felt compelled to stop and order a copy. Here, from four different reader reviewers, are some snippets about what looks like a must-have Goddess book:

“As a freelance editor, for personal and professional reasons I generally do not review books I have worked on, but there are a very few novels for which I make exceptions because for me they are exceptional. More than well crafted novels, they are work that is outside the box in some rare and moving way that broadens my mind and deepens my soul personally and professionally…”

One of the best stories I've read about the Goddess. I loved the idea that a thoroughly modern woman is suddenly forced to face herstory and discovers she's the hereditary head of an ancient religion….”

While reading, there were times when I was in tears , times when I was on the edge of my seat, and times when I was in a dream-like trance….”

The Giuliana Legacy is better that the Mists of Avalon at introducing the ancient Goddess religion and its mysteries of love.”

Got this story today from my brother, about a whiny old woman:

“Dear Sis Athana,

Below is an actual letter sent to a bank by an 86-year-old woman. The bank manager thought it amusing enough to have it published in the New York Times:

Dear Sir:

I am writing to thank you for bouncing my check with which I endeavored to pay my plumber last month. By my calculations, three nanoseconds must have elapsed between his presenting the check and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honor it.

I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my entire pension, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only eight years.

You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting my account $30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience caused to your bank.

My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has caused me to rethink my errant financial ways.

I noticed that whereas I personally answer your telephone calls and letters, --- when I try to contact you, I am confronted by the impersonal, overcharging, pre-recorded, faceless entity which your bank has become.

From now on, I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh-and-blood person. My mortgage and loan repayments will therefore and hereafter no longer be automatic, but will arrive at your bank, by check, addressed personally and confidentially to an employee at your bank whom you must nominate.

Be aware that it is an offense under the Postal Act for any other person to open such an envelope. Please find attached an Application Contact which I require your chosen employee to complete. I am sorry it runs to eight pages, but in order that I know as much about him or her as your bank knows about me, there is no alternative.

In due course, at MY convenience, I will issue your employee with a PIN number which he/she must quote in dealings with me. I regret that it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have modeled it on the number of button presses required of me to access my account balance on your phone bank service. As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Let me level the playing field even further. When you call me, press buttons as follows:


#1. To make an appointment to see me.
#2. To query a missing payment.
#3. To transfer the call to my living room in case I am there.
#4. To transfer the call to my bedroom in case I am sleeping.
#5. To transfer the call to my toilet in case I am attending to nature.
#6. To transfer the call to my mobile phone if I am not at home.
#7. To leave a message on my computer, a password to access my computer is required. Password will be communicated to you at a later date to that Authorized Contact mentioned earlier.
#8. To return to the main menu and to listen to options 1 through 7.
#9. To make a general complaint or inquiry. The contact will then be put on hold, pending the attention of my automated answering service.
#10. This is a second reminder to press* for English. While this may, on occasion, involve a lengthy wait, uplifting music will play for the duration of the call.

Regrettably, but again following your example, I must also levy an establishment fee to cover the setting up of this new arrangement. May I wish you a happy, if ever so slightly less prosperous New Year?

Your Humble Client’
Frankly, I’m kinda buzzed out about people like this old woman. Always whining about how banks aren’t nice to her. Jeez! I mean, she’s just the customer! Banks and other Very Big Businesses aren’t around to kowtow to her!

Sure, in her day businesses made customers feel like the King. But that’s only cuz they had to. Back then, there were so many businesses -- all trying to sell the same thing -- that a dude HADDA kiss the customer’s foot -- or the customer’d go pop her wad at someone else’s store.

But then ol’ daddy Ronnie Reagan wrangled his way into the White House. Thankfully, Daddy let a few of his buds suck up all the competition. Now, today, there’s only one or two dudes owning everything. And they don’t have to suck up to anyone!

Now isn’t that the way life was meant to be? Aren’t we supposed to love our (Big) Brother?

I’m so sorry to say that while YAJ* clergy routinely rape the powerless, the YAJ power structure routinely looks the other way. Now here’s a dude who says, “Geezum! Sorry! That’s just the way religious power structures are!”

Other examples of reprehensible behavior on the part of the Orthodox … involve Orthodox authorities shielding rabbis known to have sexually abused teenagers and children from exposure and prosecution…. Considering that Roman Catholic authorities did likewise …, one can see that the problem is endemic in religious authority structures….” Go HERE for more.
Excuse, please. Maybe that’s how YAJ power structures are, but dude! Don’t dump this dirt on the rest of us! I have yet to get wind of one Goddess priestess/priest who’s raped anything – let alone a child (Goddess forbid!).

What’s more, the Goddess world frowns upon “authority structures” and “power structures” both. Each is a sickness residing in the world of YAJ. And each shoves the Goddess world apart from the blighted, bloated world of YAJ, a world that works night and day to convince us that in the religion department, there’s nothing else for sale but YAJ.


Don’t buy it for a minute. Don’t be hoodwinked by this war to warp your mind. YAJ is not the only religion around, by far.

As a matter of fact, YAJ is not a religion at all. YAJ is a control system, one dead set on controlling you, your mind and your body – a control system so wacko it’s waltzing the whole planet into oblivion.

So for Goddess’ sake, dear readers, don’t ever buy what YAJ has for sale.

For a fuller explanation of all of this, read my book, Switching to Goddess: Humanity’s Ticket to the Future, out for sale in November of this year. Buy it either at or, take your pick.
* YAJ is YahwehAllahJehovah. Although most of us see him as three separate gods, he’s actually only one: the god of Abraham. Go check out the Torah, Bible and Koran. They’re really one and the same book featuring, ta da! The main character, the one and only *YAJ*!!!!!!!

Today we take another peek at the underbelly of the beast calling itself “father god.”

Published: April 8, 2008

ELDORADO, Texas - More than 400 children, mostly girls in pioneer dresses, were swept into state custody from a polygamist sect in what authorities described Monday as the largest child-welfare operation in Texas history.


The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, headed by [Warren] Jeffs after his father's death in 2002, broke away from the Mormon church after the latter disavowed polygamy more than a century ago.


Jeffs is jailed in Kingman, Ariz., where he awaits trial for four counts each of incest and sexual conduct with a minor stemming from two arranged marriages between teenage girls and their older male relatives.

In November, he was sentenced to two consecutive sentences of five years to life in prison in Utah for being an accomplice to the rape of a 14-year-old girl who wed her cousin in an arranged marriage in 2001.

This feels like ripping the Father’s sheep mask off and coming face to face with the real blood-eyed monster, snaggle teeth blood-smeared, breath stinking with the stale blood of hundreds of thousands of women and children it’s consumed for lunch for the past several centuries.

Although this is very, very old, it so fits this blog:

Q: What do you get when your cross an insomniac, an agnostic, and a dyslexic? ...............

A: Someone who's up all night wondering if there is a dog.

Which reminds me: I haven't posted any pics of Duncan the dog lately. The problem is, he doesn't like to have his pic snapped unless he's just had a bath, and Mommy Athana has been very bad lately about baths. So what you see above is a post-bath pic from the past.
