A Phoenix man accidentally blew his dick off in a supermarket parking lot, after he tucked his girlfriend’s “pink pistol in the waistband of his pants.” According to a stone-faced police officer on the scene in this ABC15 report, the gun then accidentally discharged, sending a bullet directly through his penis and through his left leg.

In a related matter, Arizona legislature has introduced a new bill that would make parking lot auto-castration mandatory for all males over the age of 18. It’s their God-given right! [ABC15 via The Daily What]

Praying Away the Pounds

Yes, it is possible to lose weight, get fit and healthier through prayer. I know prayer works with weight loss and health challenges: I’ve lost 150 pounds and maintained it almost 20 years only by the grace of God, eating more healthfully and through “re-creation.” Without God’s help, I would have been dead long ago.

There are so many weight loss diets, pills, diet “food” products, exercise equipment, clubs, gyms, surgical interventions, books, videos — it’s impossible to keep up with them all. I know about those, too. I tried a bunch of them and spent a lot of time and money, but they didn’t ultimately work because they’re mostly one-dimensional. A lot of them are outright bogus and only exist to get your money. What I learned through years of dieting and nutritional interventions, failing a lot, losing weight and gaining it back, was that I had to also put my mind and spiritual beliefs into practice. I couldn’t just focus on my body. I had to deal with my emotions, mental beliefs and improve my spiritual life as well.

Being someone who was addicted to overeating, I discovered nothing in this material world could ever satisfy me. Stuffing myself with excess food, stuffing my emotions down and avoiding moving at all costs just never satisfied. Being with God through prayer and being guided by Him is far more satisfying than any food, emotion or material thing. These days, my prayer consists of only seeking the will of God, through the Jesus Prayer, asking for His help in everything I am and do.

Twenty years ago, when I was desperate to lose weight, there was nothing available that combined body, mind and spiritual solutions. I had to discover my own methods, and after exhausting every diet imaginable, including diet pills and dangerous fasting, and lots of therapy and counseling, all that was left was to ask God for help. So I did, and miracles happened. I was able to focus my mind, resolve a traumatic, emotional past, and finally learn proper nutrition and enjoy moving my body on a regular basis. I reached out for God, and He answered my prayers.

Everything I needed came into place, and I began to slowly, consistently lose weight, enjoy recreation, express myself, and train and educate my mind. Because there wasn’t anything that combined spiritual weight loss with emotional work, logic and exercise, I wrote a book (“” target=”_hplink”>The Joy of Weight Loss: a Spiritual Guide to Easy Fitness“) and produced two DVDs on the subject (“Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss” and “Big Body Yoga“). I speak publicly about the power of prayer, to groups and in workshops, because so many people ask me how I lost so much weight and keep it off. I’ve also been a spiritual weight loss coach for many years. I want to help people as others helped me when I weighed 400 pounds.

It’s not enough to just pray away the pounds, though — we need to become healthier on all levels: in body, mind and spirit, together. Sound familiar? Not just the YMCA’s motto, or the Trinity, but Plato in his “Timaeus,” around B.C.E 363., taught us that human beings are a composite of not just physical matter, but of mind and spirit as well. The world is seeking balance, and so are we. Plato wrote that humans are like a chariot being pulled by two horses, with mind (intellect) as the charioteer in charge. One horse, the physical body that craves food and drink and pleasure, is unruly. The other horse, representing our higher aspects, is more manageable and calm. Most importantly, Plato reasoned that it was our spiritual self, connecting with our Creator through logic and prayer, that keeps us in balance. We need to nurture and manage all our parts, always moving toward union with God as the highest realm.

So, what to do if you’re struggling with overweight or obesity? Give up! Say a prayer right now, and put whatever faith you have into gear. Pray to God, saying out loud, “I need help, I cannot do this alone, please help me.” If you’re Christian, as I am, pray to Jesus Christ and put your weight problem in His mighty care. If you’re a believer or a member of another religion or tradition, ask your Creator as you know him (or her). If you’re atheist or non-religious, no problem! Put your problems into the care of your Higher Power, Higher Self or to Nature. You might also want to go to the next Twelve Step group, such as Overeater‘s Anonymous. There you’ll find others who you can speak confidentially with, and share in prayer. Or your church, synagogue, temple or shrine.

By praying and giving up your weight and health problems and asking for help, you’re accomplishing many things: you are saying to God and the world that you believe, you’re admitting that you cannot do everything alone, you’re surrendering the burden and literally lifting the weight off your shoulders. As you’re praying, try to be in a peaceful, or even silent place. Enjoy the feeling of being with God in silence, connecting with prayer. Know that God or your Higher Power is not only with you, He’s inside you, hearing the prayer. Do this as often as possible, when waking up in the morning, during your daily work and before going to sleep.

Prayer is the first step in a program that’s balanced with nutritional education, eating well so that you’re satisfied and getting all the right nutrients in smaller quantities, feeling and expressing your emotions, and sharpening your mind and intellect.

With God, all things are possible — especially getting healthier, losing weight and becoming a whole, happy person.

Yesterday (July 12), rumor spread that Nicki Minaj had been involved in a verbal altercation with a young man that turned physical.

 

Jason Reeves Folks Up Nicki Minaj

 

Nicki Minaj got into a verbal altercation with an unidentified male at the Palomar Hotel in Dallas, TX, according to TMZ. The argument began poolside and ended with the two in a hotel room were the man, now identified as Nicki Minaj’s assistant, Safaree Samuels, allegedly hit her in the lower lip.

 

Early this morning (July 13), Nicki Minaj took to twitter to fight the rumor,tweeting, “The fact that you believe a man either slapped or punched me in the face & didn’t leave on a stretcher w/his balls handgun off? #getaF*ckinLife.”

 

Nicki Minaj’s Cousin Killed: Report

Safaree also took to Twitter to address the matter, “4the record I would never lay a hand on ANY woman, I have all sisters and No brothers And that’s the last I’ll say about that!!! God bless.”

 

Close to six hours later, TMZ released the official incident report which documents the altercation between Nicki and Safaree which took place on July 11 but reported July 12.

 

“R/os [reporting officers] spoke with the Complainant [Nicki Minaj], who stated a verbal altercation took place at the location at the pool. When [Minaj], returned to her hotel room, Witness 1 [Safaree Samuels] was also back at the room. [Samuels] was also staying in the hotel room with the comp. [Minaj] told [Samuels] that she didn’t want him taking anything out of the room. [Samuels] had some of his personal belongings in a suitcase, and as [Minaj] was looking into the suitcase, [Samuels] grabbed the suitcase and as he was picking it up, he shoved the suitcase across [Minaj's] chin and lower lip.”

 

The report continues to describe Nicki Minaj’s injury.

“Reporting officers observed slight swelling and redness to [Minaj's] chin. [Minaj's] teeth struck the inside of her lower lip, causing the inside of the lower lip to cut and start to bleed.”

 

Nicki Minaj told the officers that she did not want to “make a report regarding the incident” and stated “multiple times” that she and Safaree were not in an “intimate relationship” nor related.

When Inocenta Hernandez awoke to the sound of a massive explosion, she immediately ran outside — but soon discovered, much to her horror, that the freakish sound had originated inside her home.

As the AFP is reporting, the 65-year-old Guatemala City resident returned to find a three-foot-wide, 40-foot-deep sinkhole beneath her bed. The hole may be tiny compared to a larger, 330-foot-deep sinkhole that formed nearby in 2007 and left three people dead, but Hernandez says she was nonetheless shaken by the experience, according to the AFP:

“When we heard the loud boom we thought a gas canister from a neighboring home had exploded, or there had been a crash on the street,” Hernandez said. “We rushed out to look and saw nothing. A gentleman told me that the noise came from my house, and we searched until we found it under my bed. Thank God there are only material damages, because my grandchildren were running around the house, into that room and out to the patio”

Guatemala City is built on volcanic deposits and especially prone to sinkholes, which are often blamed on leaky sewers or on heavy rain, The Guardian is reporting. Last year, a 60-foot-wide sinkhole swallowed a three-story building and nearby house.

Have you ever considered why it’s impolite to question another’s religious beliefs? The answer is simple. They can’t respond without sounding like a fool. It’s likely that many understand that their doctrines are absurd.

They do have this ability because they apply it to other faiths. They might say, ‘Group X believes man and woman were created when a giant bird snapped a piece of bamboo in two with his beak; that is so stupid.’ Yet, they cannot say the same for a clot of dust or a rib?

For me, this issue is minor compared to the larger one. These allegedly righteous affirm that they have the authority and duty to control your life and press their views on you. When someone points out errors in their argument most are so absentminded that rational points cannot penetrate their thick skulls. If you do manage to make a small dent in their spiritual armor, they retreat back to their Bible or holy shepherd for a reassuring swig of Jesus Kool Aid. There is a reason the church refers to its followers as a flock.

The faithful have been indoctrinated in the idea that their holy book is correct and this has been reinforced with constant threats of hellfire. This methodology is essential to the survival of Christianity, and those who reach adulthood with these notions intact aim to intimidate and bully others into accepting the same authority.

The holy rollers say they know the truth because it’s in their book. Most will continue to ignore evidence contrary to their particular church’s view. Their doctrine is grounded in wishful thinking but this system does have weaknesses. As mentioned before, these same individuals are fervent disbelievers in every other religion under the sun. They see the silliness in other faiths. Yet, most will continue to defend their claims until death in hopes of achieving some divine afterlife.

This type of behavior hinders their minds and society as a whole. How does this possibly affect others you might ask? Once again, the answer is simple.

They push beliefs onto other people. Evangelicals command huge voting blocks in the US that have hindered research in such promising areas as stem cell research. They want “creationist science” taught in schools. They oppose proper sex education classes while holding out on the notion that condoms are bad and abstinence is the answer. This aids in the spread of STDs, the rise of teen pregnancies and abortions, and massive government handouts to unwed mothers. They do this without ever considering the possibility that their religion, based on ancient scribblings of Bronze Age Palestinian desert dwelling thugs, could possibly be untrue.

Plainly put, religion is incapable of leaving people alone. The devout, especially Presbyterians, Baptists, and Catholics, want to ban books, censor movies and television shows, silence dissenters, and invade the private sphere by saying who you can marry or sleep with (and in what positions), all the while insisting they have the answers. Their actions do not equate with freedom. They would gleefully forfeit liberty as long as authority removed Darwinism from classrooms and placed the Ten Commandments on courthouse lawns.

Churches may preach of eternal bliss in some wonderful afterlife, but their leaders desire to make life on earth a living hell for us. Why else do they spend so much time and energy lobbying government leaders?

Can you imagine if we tossed billions into temples for Zues and gave our hard-earned money to men who preached stories about Apollo? Or if we refused to have our children vaccinated because some lunatic told us that we are interfering with Amen Ra’s will.

A nonbeliever can see through the veil of Christianity and other religions, yet the faithful look down their noses on dissenters. They believe an invisible, all-seeing and all-knowing man in the sky created them. He cares about them and loves them. He will reward them. The Bible is the be all and end all. Anyone who doesn’t believe in God or his book burns in hell. Under any other scenario, society would scoff everything they say and dismiss them as mental.

Remember this poor girl

Yet even today, in a nation such as the US, they are not taxed and exert tremendous control over politics, blocking pioneering research and insisting that their beliefs, masquerading as science, be taught in public schools. We must start criticizing these actions in hopes of putting these silly notions behind us.

Those willing to stand up to them need some “spiritual armor” of their own. And the truth is this: any time someone willingly puts reason aside based on claims without evidence it opens up realms for sinister things…as we shall see in future installments.

A 25-year-old man from Chandler, AZ is now facing child abuse charges for burning his 5-year-old son’s wrist and arms for touching a Bible.  According to Chandler Police Sgt. Joe Favazzo, the red blistering on the child’s wrist and hand were first noticed by the boy’s grandparents when they returned home from church services last Sunday.  Johnny Salazar, who lives at home with his parents, was watching after the boy and his 2-year-old brother at the time the incident occurred.

 

When Salazar’s parents returned from church services, they noticed red blistering on the wrist and arm of the 5-year-old.  They asked their son what happened and Salazar informed them he burned the child with a cigarette lighter, police said.

“The boy was touching his Bible and he thought the boy may be possessed,” Sgt. Favazzo commented.

Police added that the 5-year-old told his grandmother his father burned him for touching the Bible.

According to police reports, Salazar was talking gibberish about demons and possession at the time of his arrest.

The injuries were not serious enough to require medical attention, and Sgt. Favazzo informed reporters that the child and his brother are now in the custody of their mother, who lives in Casa Grande with her parents.
