(Washington, D.C., Thursday, March 5, 2015) The Center for Freedom and Prosperity (CF&P) commends Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) for again standing up for millions of taxpayers by reintroducing yesterday his legislation (S.663) to repeal the most destructive and privacy violating provisions of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).

CF&P President Andrew Quinlan commented on the news, “FATCA has been just one disaster after another. Congress passed a rash law without first properly weighing the costs and benefits, and now millions of innocent Americans are suffering the consequences. Thankfully, Senator Paul recognizes that it’s not too late to correct this egregious error.”

Included as a throw-in to the 2010 Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act, FATCA has overwhelmed the global financial community with burdens completely out of proportion with the law’s predicted revenue returns. FATCA treats all Americans living, working or investing overseas as criminally suspect.

Senator Paul’s legislation was first introduced in 2013 during the 113th Congress. Led by CF&P, a coalition of 22 free market and taxpayer protection groups at that time urged support for FATCA repeal. Signatories included Americans for Tax Reform, the National Taxpayers Union, FreedomWorks, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, Americans for Prosperity, and the Taxpayers Protection Alliance, among others.

A loving note from Father Nektarios Serfes:

God bless you on your path during the first week of holy & Great Lent… See you in prayer.

Thought to humbly share this with you…

The Goodness & Kindness Of Our God, by Archimandrite Nektarios Serfes

Orthodox Christianity is not a matter of persuasive words.

It is a matter of true goodness and kindness towards one another.

May the goodness and kindness of our Lord God be with you always!

Our Lord God is kind and good – but do we ever stop to think if we deserve the goodness and kindness of our God? Could we ever be that worthy?

Sometimes we think we can call upon God to perform some act of justice on our behalf, but that justice, because it comes from our own limited and selfish viewpoint turns out to be against what is best for mankind. Our purpose is to be the heralds of God’s goodness, because He provides justice and mercy to those who are worthy of them. Our Christian lives must never be lived in an atmosphere of revenge against anyone, but always showing love towards one another. The good things we do for others, whether seen or unseen, bring us many spiritual rewards. God bestows them upon us, and through His giving there is a proclamation of His love, goodness and kindness. We already know that our God is just and righteous, but to seek revenge through our imagined “justice” is not the Christian approach to God.

God Himself is good and kind to those who are evil, and He waits for them to approach Him with love and repentance, He is, after all, a patient God who is always ready to offer His repentant people that same goodness and kindness.

Remember how the Prodigal Son in Jesus’ parable left his father and family, and eventually ended up living a very impious life, filled with evil and deceit; then, after finally realizing the state he was in – his eyes were opened – he longed to return to the goodness, kindness and blessings he had known. The Prodigal Son knew in the depth of his heart that our Lord God was still good and kind, so with contrition he returned home with tears of sincere repentance. To his joy he discovered that his earthly father too accepted him home again as his respected son. This truly was great goodness and kindness. God Himself was pleased the prodigal returned home to live his life of goodness and kindness to the full once again.

Christ our Lord died on the Cross because He loved us all, and this ultimate act of goodness and kindness did not stop after His Crucifixion. It still exists today as a powerful, active force, because goodness and kindness is always the Way of God.

Let us also be like the saints of our Church who were indeed good and kind. St Mark the Monk (early 5th century) wrote the following: “The saints offer repentance not only on their own behalf, but also on behalf of their neighbor; for without active love they cannot be made perfect. So the whole universe is held together, and we are helped providentially by one another.”

Are we, as Orthodox Christians, kind and good towards one another? How good have we been during the past days and weeks? How kind have we been towards one another? When was the last time we offered some act of goodness and kindness to someone we didn’t even know, and this act this brought peace and hope to this individual? In such a selfless act, it could be that this person for the first time found a true Christian – indeed, encountered Christ through and in us. When was the last time we told our children that goodness and kindness bring many blessings, and that they too should be good and kind towards all?

Do we desire to see our God, and to behold His mercy? Then be good and kind towards everyone. As pious Orthodox Christians let our days be spent in offering goodness and kindness towards one another, and we shall see and find our God. Our good and kind God will reward us with his compassion and His love. What a blessing!

God will love the life we live when we are kind and good.

May our good and kind God be with you always!

Humbly In Christ Our True God,

+Very Rev. Archimandrite Nektarios Serfes

Who prays for you!

The Science of Anti-Vaccination

Published on Feb 19, 2015 by scishow
Fewer children in the United States are getting vaccinated. That’s bad news for those kids, and also for public health in general. Often, the response is to argue and debate and get angry at people who are we see as making terrible, irrational decisions. Instead of doing that, let’s use science to understand why this is happening in the first place.

CanadianJihad.ca documents public statements made by Canadian imams, Muslim scholars, and Islamic activists who advocate extremist ideas that undermine Canadian principles of freedom, democracy, pluralism, the rule of law, respect for minorities and the separation of mosque and state. In some cases, it shows Muslim leaders actually promoting violence, including murdering infidels.

In the Qur’an, Allah claims to be perfectly clear in his commands (see 6:114; 11:1; 12:1; 15:1; 16:89; 22:72; 24:1, 34, 46; 26:2; 27:1; 28:2; 36:69; 41:3; 57:9; 65:11; etc.). Yet when critics quote the Qur’an, many Muslims insist that Allah means something very different from what he says. This should cause us to wonder: Is Allah’s speech clear, or is it horribly unclear? Could Allah be the the worst communicator ever? In this video, David Wood discusses the problem.

BHO makes the one-finger Muslim gang sign at US-African leaders’ summit

American Thinker: Obama and the Muslim Gang Sign

Is President Obama a Muslim? A lot has been written about this, but if photographs speak louder than words, then a photo taken at last August’s U.S.-African Leaders’ Summit in Washington D.C. might shed considerable light.

It shows Barack Hussein Obama flashing the one-finger affirmation of Islamic faith to dozens of African delegates.

The Associated Press took this astonishing photo as the African dignitaries joined Obama, who hosted the event, in a State Department auditorium for a group photograph. It was published in an article in Britain’s Daily Mail, and it was the only use ever of the photo.

The one-finger display is the distinctive Muslim gang sign: The index finger points straight up while the thumb wraps underneath and presses against the digital phalange of the middle finger. The remaining fingers are squeezed against the palm in order to highlight the extended forefinger. The extended finger is symbolic of the one-God concept of Muhammad and is understood by all believers to be a symbolic shahada, the Muslim affirmation of faith: There is but one God and Muhammad is his messenger.

R4BIA, the Muslim Brotherhood gang sign

Front Page: A New Muslim Brotherhood Symbol: R4BIA

There is a new Islamist symbol appearing in protests, on social networking sites and at demonstrations throughout the Middle East. The symbol allegedly originated as a four-fingered hand sign by pro-Morsi protesters during demonstrations in Egypt’s Rabia al-Adawiya Square. The hand gesture quickly evolved into an image of the hand commonly depicted in black on a bright yellow background. It is called the “R4BIA sign.” In English it is officially spelled in capital letters and the letter “A” is replaced with the number 4. It has become the symbol of the massacre of pro-Morsi supporters in Rabia al-Adawiya Square on August 14, 2013. This new sign already has its own history, legend and mysticism and it contains all the attributes that Islamists favor in their symbology, particularly martyrdom.
