Land of the free (?)

Officials at Louisiana State University defended their decision to remove Christian crosses from a picture, then felt pressured to apologize because of the enormous backlash.

After reading the full story below, you may wonder what communist country did this happened in? China? Cuba? Venezula? No, none of the above. Actually it didn't happen in a communist country at all. It may surprise you to know that it happened here, in America. Land of the free, home of the brave. You may also wonder then, "Has the Muslim Brotherhood covertly infiltrated our academia like they have our government and churches." "Has Hilter come back to life?" Decide for yourselves.

Although the story went nationwide with articles in,,, and many others, I chose to take the story from found at

My response to the story about the LSU officials photoshopping out crosses that Christian students had painted on themselves is way too long for the "COMMENTS" section of any web site article or social blog, so I  put it here on my blog, below the story. I am hoping someone will read it and it will help them come to understand why things like this are happening in this day and age. Especially the LSU officials. Because they need to see this and rethink their position.

I have three teenage children, all seriously considering a college education in their very near future. However, we certainly will be crossing Louisiana State University off our consideration list, and will not be checking this university out any time soon. And I'm sure once my Christian family and friends see this article they, too, will be doing the very same thing. Well, it's no loss. I'm sure Louisiana State University does not welcome Christians anyway. It's pretty obvious.

America is at a dangerous crossroads at this time in our history. After throwing God out of schools, teaching our children that we come from apes, and giving them the finer points of sex education by offering them free condemns, and informing them as to where they can go to get an abortion without parents knowledge, Academia is now teaching our young that we do not have first amendment rights ( anymore. I believe by LSU officials editing the crosses out, it was a blatant violation of the students Consitutional rights. Just what are academians teaching our children?

The First Amendment says that people have the right to speak freely without government interference. Check out:
The Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution was ratified on December 15, 1791

University officials stand by decision to digitally remove symbol of Christian cross off students

Officials at Louisiana State University defended their decision on Thursday to publish a photo in which they removed symbols of the Christian cross worn by students at Saturday’s football game.

The doctored photo, which appeared in an e-mail about the LSU vs. South Carolina game, featured a group of students known as “The Painted Posse,” who paint their bodies with LSU school colors and small crosses for every home game.

The students, who are Christians, were shocked to see the photo which appeared to be otherwise untouched.

“I was a bit surprised, because our pictures get used so frequently, and the cross had never been edited before,” said Posse member Cameron Cooke in an interview with Campus Reform.

“The cross painting is important to me because it represents who I am as a Christ follower,” Cooke added, “ and it reminds me who I need to act like in Death Valley.


But in a separate interview with Campus Reform on Thursday, Vice Chancellor for Communications Herb Vincent acknowledge the school had altered the image to prevent other students from being offended.


LSU Athletics attempts not to imply any particular religious or political message in any of its correspondence with fans,” said Vincent. “Thus the crosses were edited out of the photos.”

Vincent also said the university was within its rights to edit the photo and claimed that it routinely edits photos before publication.

Regardless Vincent said the university will avoid using similar photos in the future to avoid controversy.

The remastered image of the students, after school officials digitally removed the Christian cross (below):

I am a graphic designer (not to mention a Jesus-loving, God-fearing, Bible-believer), and my husband is a professional photographer. With over twenty years background experience in this industry, I am speaking from professional point of view. And my professional opinion is that the digitally photoshopped picture is pathetic. Not only because the digitally photoshopped picture looks off color, but the kids in it look sick. Compare it to the original. The original is sharp and colorful. My professional opinion is that this is an extremely poor retouching job. And it didn't have to be done. But you don't have to be a professional to realize this.

Actually, I believe what the LSU Officials did was disgraceful. The LSU officials didn't ask permission, or even mentioned to the group that they were going to digitally remove the small crosses from the picture of  “The Painted Posse”, who paints their bodies with LSU school colors and small crosses for every home football game they attend.

LSU Officials never felt compelled to remove the crosses in the past. But, for some reason, it seems, the officials felt compelled to do so this time. Their reason? According to the article, it says, "Vice Chancellor for Communications Herb Vincent acknowledged the school altered the image to prevent other students from being offended."

They thought the crosses would "offend" other students. However, when this group of Christian students had painted crosses on themselves a number of times before, no one had ever complained that they felt offended by the The Painted Posse's crosses then. Not once. However, when I heard this story, I was surely offended by the actions of the LSU Officials. And, if you read the comment sections of all the different media outlets that ran this story, you will see I am not alone. There are many, many others that felt offended by the actions the LSU Officials took. By altering the image the LSU Officials have offended students.

I found it interesting that, "Vincent said the university will avoid using similar photos in the future to avoid controversy." Why do I find it interesting? Because there was no controversy to avoid until LSU Officials altered the photo. They created the controversy!

So let's recap: LSU Officials said they will avoid any controversy (which they never had before, except the controversy they caused this time by altering the photo), and they will avoid offending anyone (who was never offended before, except when LSU Officials altered the photo). And they will do these wonderful deeds by avoiding using “The Painted Posse's” pictures again. Hmmm . . . doesn't make a whole lot of sense, does it? And these people teach our children?

Many years ago, when I was much younger, perhaps in my 20's, I was unsure at that time if I would be alive to see the last days and end time Bible prophecy come to pass. It's pretty obvious as I read the daily papers, that I am here to see it happening.  How can I tell? Because of what Jesus said would happen in the end days. I certainly see everything he warned us about happening in today's society.

When I first read this story, I have to say, I found that I was surprised by it (and a little saddened). I really shouldn't had been as surprised as I was. Why? Because, as I said earlier, I am a Bible-believing, Jesus-loving, God-fearing person. And to be a Bible-believer you have to be a Bible-reader. Which I am. And in the Bible, Jesus warns us many, many times what these days will be like (notice I used the word warn?).

He warned, "Whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels." (Mark 8:38). The rejection of Christ has a terrible consequence to pay! I don't think those LSU Officials realize how serious this is.

Here's some other words of Christ that need to be pondered:
Matthew 10:33, "But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven."
Matthew 16:27, "For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done."
Proverb 8:36, "All those who hate me love death.”

In a comment section one person wrote, "The cross IS an offence to the sinner, the disobediant, the rejector, & the one who refuses to take a stand. But to the believer, it is the rainbow, the Promise." And he's so right, because the Bible tells us, 1 Corinthians 1:18, "the preaching of the cross is to them that perish, foolishness, but unto us which are saved, it is the power of God."

Unfortunately, we see John 12:43 at work all too often in today's world . . . John 12:43, "For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God."

If they painted a crescent moon, or perhaps a pentagram, on themselves, would The LSU officials had removed these items? Or perhaps if they saw a Muslim in the picture, perhaps a woman with her burka or a man with his turban, would they had removed these items? Or is our God the only god they don't want any part of?

Any symbol or hint of Jesus Christ anymore has to be denied. Everyone else can force their perverted beliefs down our throats, but Christianity, and Jesus, can't be mentioned above a whisper, or someone may get offended. Yet, without him there is no hope.

The LSU officials did realize what they did was very stupid when they saw all the negative comments, mostly in favor of the students, and condemning the actions of the LSU Officials. They ended up apologizing.

LSU Apologizes for Editing Out Crosses in Photo, But New Policy No Better?

By Alex Murashko ,

A group of Christian students at Louisiana State University who make it a tradition before football games to paint their bodies in school colors along with small crosses on their chests received an apology Monday from college officials who digitally erased the crosses from a photo. However, a statement from LSU suggests that any photo having a religious or political symbol will no longer be considered for any of its communications having to do with promoting the college.

Prior to the apology, LSU stood firm in its decision to send the photo minus the crosses in an e-mail about the LSU vs. South Carolina game on Oct. 13. The featured group of LSU students is known as "The Painted Posse."

"LSU Athletics attempts not to imply any particular religious or political message in any of its correspondence with fans," Herb Vincent, who is the Vice Chancellor for Communications, told last week. "Thus the crosses were edited out of the photos."

The Christian student group was shocked to see the photo which appeared to be otherwise untouched, according to news reports. In an interview done for local TV, members said they were not angry with the college, but would simply continue to wear their painted colors and their crosses to home games.

"I was a bit surprised, because our pictures get used so frequently, and the cross had never been edited before," said Posse member Cameron Cooke in an interview with Campus Reform.

"The cross painting is important to me because it represents who I am as a Christ follower and it reminds me who I need to act like in Death Valley," said Cooke.

LSU's Tiger Stadium is also known as "Death Valley" because of it being one of the most difficult places for visiting teams to play. The stadium is nationally known for having among the best game day atmospheres in college football.

The story of LSU's "photoshop" removal of the crosses received national media attention over this past weekend and by Monday an apology by the university was issued.

"LSU sent out a promotional message on October 15 to its sports fans asking for feedback on their experience at the LSU-South Carolina game on October 13. In messages to sports fans we attempt to convey no religious or political messaging," LSU officials stated in a Facebook post. "We did not intend to offend anyone by the editing of this photograph and in the future we will use another photo rather than make a similar edit. We erred in our judgment and we have communicated our apologies to the group of young men represented in the photo whose school spirit is second to none."

However, by late afternoon on Monday, more than 700 comments had been posted under LSU's Facebook apology statement, many of them not accepting of the apology.

"Having a policy of not taking photos of exceptional Tiger fans who happen to identify religiously does make them second class citizens," commented Thomas Tobias D'Anna, a former LSU student. 

"You discriminate according to religious identification from the beginning. While religious identification is not the only form of diversity, it's a pretty big one. From the outset, you choose to be less diverse than any university that doesn't have a similar policy. And it's the kind of policy that will keep LSU from being able to recruit Tim Tebow types from any religious background. The proper response to this was just an apology…"

Romans 1:18, "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth."

The LSU officials need to take heed to the words of Jesus Christ. They would be doing themselves a great disservice if they don't. It needs to be known that Jesus Christ is the ONLY truth out there . . . and we don't want to keep him hidden? We need to follow the example of the LSU students. Wake up people . . . the hour is getting late!

Celebrities Lend Their Sarcasm For Your Right to Know About GMO Food

"What makes you think you have the right to know?" asks Danny DeVito in a witty, ironic public service announcement by the political action committee sponsored by consumer advocacy group Food & Water Watch in support of Proposition 37. California's ballot initiative to label genetically engineered foods. A diverse, all-star cast joins DeVito in the "Right to Know" PSA, including Bill Maher, Dave Matthews, Jillian Michaels, Emily Deschanel, John Cho, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson, KaDee Strickland and Kristin Bauer van Straten.

Biotech Scientist:
It’s ‘Awesome’ That GMOs Cause Infertility, Death

Anthony Gucciardi
Activist Post

The debate as to whether or not genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are causing serious health issues like infertility and even death is proclaimed as ‘heated’ and ‘inconclusive’ by the mainstream media, but even the very scientists working behind the scenes appear to acknowledge the very reality of their effects. In one such communication I received from a very angry biotech scientist who proclaimed it was ‘awesome’ if GMOs were causing mass infertility and death, it becomes tragically clear that even many of the scientists working in the biotech field know full well that GMOs are causing significant bouts of disease across the globe.

Independently verified by both our team and a separate team of experts, this biotech scientist who works for a well-known firm was either apathetic or ignorant to ways in which you can conceal your identity through more advanced methods than what he utilized. Using profanity and a few words in all capital letters, it’s easy to see just how outraged this scientist is that in my article I deemed those who create GMOs and unleash them on the public without proper warning to be ‘traitors to humanity’. It appears he must have also read the comment section, where readers voiced their own (oftentimes stronger) opinions on these scientists.

In the email, the biotech scientist known as ‘Ed’ explains how he thinks it’s absolutely ‘awesome’ that GMOs are contributing to fertility, as he believes the world is overpopulated. He also attacks me personally for my work on warning the public over the dangers of GMOs (particularly the latest news over the research linking GMOs to organ failure and tumor development). As of right now we have not released the full name of ‘Ed’ nor his organization, but we may in the future after considering the legal concerns.

Here is the Full Email:

I am no traitor against humanity. If this **** causes infertility… Awesome!!
The world is over-populated, and people need to stop having children. This is one of earth’s largest problems.
If the earth wasn’t overpopulated, things like growth hormones wouldn’t EXIST.
The reason they do, is that the earth cannot produce enough food on its own to feed us all.
This is why GMO is actually saving the planet.
So **** you and your ********. I am doing humanity a ******* FAVOR!!!
A REAL ‘traitor to humanity’

GMO Scientists Furious at Growing Public Awareness
This article first appeared at Natural Society, an excellent resource for health news and vaccine information.

The email comes at a time when public awareness over GMOs is growing at an exponential rate. With reality television shows being produced solely on the basis of studying the association between tumor development and GMOs and 2-to-1 lead on the California GMO labeling bill Prop 37, biotech scientists have become furious. After all, for years their corporations have been hiding behind biotech-funded phony science and high level politicians with deep ties to leading bitoech corporations. As WikiLeaks reveals, they even have many if not all US diplomats on the payroll.

But now, the grasp of biotech corporations on the food chain is dwindling. Russia, Poland, Hungary, Peru, and many other nations have all enacted full or at least partial bans on GMO varieties. In the US, Prop 37 is set to pass this November. While it appears some GMO scientists actually enjoy what they are doing to the public, they also know that the reign of GMO giants is rapidly decaying.

We will continue to post updates on this email and its origins once they are available.

Depopulation is Real – US Deaths Reach Record High

Shepard Ambellas
The Intel Hub
October 10, 2012
Read Entire Article:

Depopulation is not merely an urban myth of globalist fantasy, but a true reality.

There are various agendas and proposals worldwide that are either implemented or on the table from Henry Kissinger’s National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200) to Ted Turners admissions on video the globalists want us dead.

In fact this was the driving force (the globalists mindset) that sparked the idea of our new film SHADE the Motion Picture that will be available this December.

ABC reported;

U.S. deaths surpassed 2.5 million for the first time last year, reflecting the nation’s growing and aging population.

The increase of about 45,000 more deaths than in 2010 was not surprising. The annual number of deaths has been generally rising for decades as the population has swelled.

“If you have an older population, of course you have more deaths,” said Qian Cai, a University of Virginia demographer who studies population trends. “That doesn’t mean the population is less healthy or less vital.”

Before last year, the largest number of deaths was 2.47 million in 2008. The number of deaths can jump up or down from year to year, depending on whether there was a bad flu season or other factors.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the report Wednesday. It’s drawn from a review of most death certificates from last year.

The report found that the rate of deaths per 100,000 people actually dropped to an all-time low. That was offset by the fact that there are so many Americans — about 314 million.

Other methods of depopulation worldwide include toxins in our water, air, poisons in toothpase, poisons in food, and more.

An excerpt from an Activist Post article reads;

Studies Prove GM Foods and Roundup Lethal

The recent and long-term French study from the University of Caen found that eating genetically modified corn and consuming trace levels of Monsanto’s Roundup chemical fertilizer caused rats to develop horrifying tumors, widespread organ damage, and premature death.

This study has been deemed “the most thorough research ever published into the health effects of GM food crops and the herbicide Roundup on rats.”

The study found:
  • Up to 50% of males and 70% of females suffered premature death.
  • Rats that drank trace amounts of Roundup (at levels legally allowed in the water supply) had a 200% to 300% increase in large tumors.
  • Rats fed GM corn and traces of Roundup suffered severe organ damage including liver damage and 
  • The study fed these rats NK603, the Monsanto variety of GM corn that’s grown across North America and widely fed to animals and humans. This is the same corn that’s in your corn-based breakfast cereal, corn tortillas and corn snack chips.
The study caused Russia to ban imports of U.S. GM corn due to the cancer risk.

 France and most of Europe have effectively banned feeding GM crops to humans and Monsanto was found guilty of ‘chemical poisoning’ earlier this year.

In the Unites States, one in two men and one in three women get cancer. What role does GM corn and soy play, which are common in most processed foods?

Walmart sells GM corn to its customers without labeling it as such.

Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov, and his colleagues were determined to discover if Monsanto’s genetically modified soy, grown on 91% of US soybean fields, leads to problems in growth or reproduction.

They found that after feeding hamsters for two years over three generations, those on the GM diet, and especially the group on the maximum GM soy diet, showed devastating results.

By the third generation, most GM soy-fed hamsters lost the ability to have babies. They also suffered slower growth, and a high mortality rate among the pups.

Scientific studies have linked Monsanto’s GM corn to organ failure.

Other studies have linked GM foods to cancer. Monsanto’s GM-derived rBGH (which is a genetically-altered growth hormone given to dairy cows to make them more milk) was shown to increase the production of IGF-1 from 70-1000%.

IGF-1 is a very powerful hormone that has been linked to a 2.5-4 times higher incidence of human colon, breast and prostate cancer.

Even Monsanto’s employees refuse to eat GM foods.

As the Health Ranger opined, GM foods appear to be the new Thalidomide, that morning sickness drug from the late 1950s that was quickly recalled for its deadly side effects.

It must also be noted that world famous researchers that expose the dangers of GM foods are routinely threatened, fired, ostracized and their findings denied by questionable “experts” with conflicts of interest. Studies proving GM food health risks are also routinely rejected by bought-and-paid-for government officials.

For many years Jeffrey Smith has been exposing the dangers of GM foods combined with government corruption. Much of his research can be viewed at the Institute for Responsible Technology.

Once one comes to terms with the fact that the global elites want us “useless eaters” dead, all of this can be put into focus.

The information needs to get out to the masses, thus exposing the oligarch’s diabolic agenda.

The High Cost of Losing Insect Populations To GMO: Ecological Interactions Are At Risk
Oct 7, 2012 by EDITOR

At first blush, many people would probably love to get rid of insects, such as pesky mosquitoes, ants and roaches. But a new study indicates that getting rid of insects could trigger some unwelcome ecological consequences, such as the rapid loss of desired traits in plants, including their good taste and high yields. Genetically modified crops and insecticides are facilitating this process.

Specifically, the study--described in the Oct. 5, 2012 issue of Science and funded by the National Science Foundation showed that evening primroses grown in insecticide-treated plots quickly lost, through evolution, defensive traits that helped protect them from plant-eating moths. The protective traits lost included the production of insect-deterring chemicals and later blooms that gave evening primroses temporal distance from plant-eating larvae that peak early in the growing season.

These results indicate that once the plants no longer needed their anti-insect defenses, they lost those defenses. What’s more, they did so quickly--in only three or four generations.

Anurag Agrawal, the leader of the study and a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Cornell University, explains, “We demonstrated that when you take moths out of the environment, certain varieties of evening primrose were particularly successful. These successful varieties have genes that produce less defenses against moths.”

In the absence of insects, the evening primroses apparently stopped investing energy in their anti-insect defenses, and so these defenses disappeared through natural selection. Agrawal says that he was “very surprised” by how quickly this process occurred, and that such surprises, “tell us something about the potential speed and complexities of evolution. In addition, experiments like ours that follow evolutionary change in real-time provide definitive evidence of evolution.”

Agrawal believes that his team’s study results are applicable to many other insect-plant interactions beyond evening primroses and moths. Here’s why: The ubiquitous consumption of plants by insects represents one of the dominant species interactions on Earth. With insect-plant relationships so important, it is widely believed that many plant traits originally evolved solely as defenses against insects. Some of these anti-insect plant defenses, such as the bitter taste of some fruits, are desirable.

“This experimental demonstration of how rapid evolution can shape ecological interactions supports the idea that we need to understand feedbacks between evolutionary and ecological processes in order to be able to predict how communities and ecosystems will respond to change,” said Alan Tessier, a program director in NSF’s Directorate for Biological Sciences.

“One of the things farmers are trying to do is breed agricultural crops to be more resistant to pests,” said Agrawal. “Our study indicates that various genetic tradeoffs may make it difficult or impossible to maintain certain desired traits in plants that are bred for pest resistance.”

"The era of GMO has caused an almost exponential increase in the use of insecticides in the last decade alone which is degrading nature in ways we simply can't understand in the short-term," said GMO researcher and scientist Magnus Ferreson.

In addition, oils produced by evening primroses have been used medicinally for hundreds of years and are beginning to be used as herbal remedies. Agrawal’s insights about pests that attack these plants and about chemical compounds produced by these plants may ultimately be useful to the herbal and pharmaceutical industries.

Agrawal says that most previous real-time experiments on evolution have been conducted with bacteria in test tubes in laboratories. “One of things we were excited about is that we were able to repeat that kind of experiment in nature. You can expect to see a lot more of this kind of thing in future. We will keep our experiment running as a long-term living laboratory. ”

More information about this study is available from a Cornell University press release.

Just Label It

Sony Lyrics

I don't wanna eat GMO
Cuz If I take a bite I want to know
I always read the ingredients list
There might be something that I accidentally missed
Cuz when I feed my family I insist

That we first get handle on this

Just Label it - all the GMO

Just Label it - so we all can know
Just Label it - let the people see
Just Label it - label it - it's time to honor the seed

Our food is sacred can't argue with that

The future's up to us and now we're takin' it back

The labels need to start stating the facts

So we know if it has GMO, oh oh

Just Label it - all the GMO

Just Label it - so we really know

Just Label it - let the people see
Just Label it - label it - it's time we honor the seed

Honor the seed

Just Label it - all the GMO

Just Label it - so we all can know

Just Label it - let the people see

Just Label it - label it - I know you wanna be free

Just label it

It's gonna get better when we
Just label it

And the food keeps growin' when we
Just label it

We gonna get it goin' when we

Label it, label it
It's time to honor the seed
